Dick’s Sporting Goods Supports 2nd Amendment by Refusing to Sell Guns

A fisking of CEO Ed Stack’s open letter to kulaks customers. He puts the dick in Dick’s Sporting Goods.

We at DICK’S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones.

In other words, “I finally found an excuse to fuck you over like I’ve always wanted to.”

But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country.

Screw you, Stack, for politicizing a tragedy. You have neither shame nor decency. Traumatized 16-year old kids aren’t pulling an organized, national advocacy out of their asses. You are using them.

We have heard you. The nation has heard you. We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that’s in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that’s taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America – our kids. Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been.

Oh God, we legally sold a firearm to a bad guy who could have used it to commit a crime but didn’t! Forgive us! Our behavior will change!

Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens.

We believe it’s time to do something about it.

Meme Ed Stack

Beginning today, DICK’S Sporting Goods is committed to the following:

We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK’S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores.

Because guns kill people! Oh my God, they were just sitting there on the shelves ready to go off at any moment and kids were walking past them! We were playing with fire! Think of the children!

Does he truly not distinguish between “assault-style rifles” and “modern sporting rifles”? Only gun-banners equate an AR-15 with a lever-action.

We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age. We will no longer sell high capacity magazines. We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.

How interesting that he’s singling out bump stocks, a product his company has never carried. Why would his current customers care? It’s like he’s… virtue-signaling to stockholders? I would guess that the stockholders would crucify him for offending gun-owning current customers. Not so?

At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations:

I get itchy whenever BigCorp speaks directly with Big Brother. You trying to cut the voter out of the loop here, Dick? I mean, Ed?

. Ban assault-style firearms

. Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21

. Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks

. Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law

. Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms

. Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks

California is our future! Wait, why does he sound like he’s reading a script?

We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken seriously.

We hope enough liberals will begin shopping at our stores to offset this alienation of 80% of our customer base.

Some will say these steps can’t guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again. They may be correct – but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it.

Not only are we lying to you about our motivations, we think you’re so stupid that you won’t notice. Again, what’s with the script-reading? “Common-sense reform”, “if even one life is saved, it will have been worth it”, “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones”, these aren’t just buzzwords. They’re buzz-SENTENCES.

We deeply believe that this country’s most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe.

Any shareholder worth his stock will kick his ass for not claiming this country’s most precious gift is Dick’s Sporting Goods. Being CEO obligates him to care primarily about his company, not about other peoples’ children.


Edward W. Stack, Chairman & CEO Dick’s Sporting Goods

For the moment. Let’s see if he gets the Brendan Eich treatment… because if the stockholders are okay with this suicidal virtue-signaling to the fringe Left then there’s a deeper story to be told.


Diane Feinstein Now Too Conservative for Democrat Support

The insistence upon illegal immigration among California’s ruling elites is proceeding far beyond insanity. Senator Diane Feinstein, up for her sixth term in this year’s midterm elections, has lost Democrat party endorsement on suspicion that she has not been adequately supportive of sanctuary city policies in the past.

From the Huffington Post:

The California Democratic Party rebuked its senior senator early Sunday by declining to make an endorsement in the state’s U.S. Senate race.

State Senate leader Kevin de Le?n, a fellow Democrat mounting a progressive challenge to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, won the support of 54 percent of the delegates at the party’s convention in San Diego over the weekend. Only 37 percent of the delegates backed the 25-year incumbent, who is seeking her fifth term in office.

The backing of 60 percent of the delegates was needed to secure the party’s official endorsement.

In a statement following the vote, de Le?n hailed the result as “an astounding rejection of politics as usual,. one that signaled growing momentum for his campaign. “California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines,. de Le?n said. .We all deserve a leader who will take our climate action to Washington, and will fight each and every day to protect our human and civil rights, our immigrant families and Dreamers, champion universal health care and create good paying middle class jobs..

The vote is seen as a sign of nagging discomfort among progressives to Feinstein’s centrist and hawkish brand of politics. Her skeptical view of single-payer health care, anti-marijuana stance, and her votes in favor of some President Donald Trump’s nominations to key administration jobs rankled activists at the core of the state’s Democratic Party.


Translation, Feinstein lacks TDS, is not an ethnic minority and thinks gov’t getting into drug dealing is a bad idea. (I always feel a touch of vertigo whenever I agree with a ranking liberal about anything.)

The Mercury News opines:

The results were a sign of unrest among many liberals who believe Feinstein should do more to challenge President Trump . and a testament to de Le?n.s insurgent message resonating with the party’s activist left flank. .The outcome of today’s endorsement vote is an astounding rejection of politics as usual,. he said in a statement.

“Activist left flank” means La Raza and similar anti-USA organizations. Feinstein’s challenger Kevin de Leon has ties to La Raza, at one point publicly admitting half his family is illegal and subject to deportation under Trump’s robust policing. Have a link:


It’s tempting to regard this as a sign that the Democrats are now sufficiently anti-white that they’re purging white members but this isn’t the first time Feinstein has been at odds with her party. Mercury News continues:

Losing the party endorsement doesn’t always mean much. When Feinstein ran for governor in 1990, she dramatically declared her support for capital punishment at the state convention, over loud boos from the hall. The party’s delegates endorsed her more liberal rival, Attorney General John Van de Kamp. But Democratic voters as a whole agreed with Feinstein on the issue, and she won the primary that year.


Likely as not, Feinstein will die of natural causes and render this spat moot. She’s 85 and looks like the bride of Darth Sidious:

In other news from the Mercury, the sexual double standard is alive and well in Hippietown:

The party also voted to oppose an endorsement for State Sen. Tony Mendoza, who resigned this week amid sexual misconduct allegations and attempts to expel him but is running for re-election. No endorsement was made in his Los Angeles-area district. …

An investigation by independent lawyers hired by the Senate found that it was “more likely than not” that Mendoza, who is married, had subjected six women to unwanted sexual advances.

The party did endorse Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, who is on leave during a separate investigation into sexual harassment allegations against her, including that she groped a male staffer. The endorsement was made at a local caucus before the allegations went public, and unlike in Mendoza’s case, Democratic Party regulations gave delegates no option to undo it.

She rapes men and there’s nothing anybody can do to punish her… ooookay. Midterms gonna be interesting. Not for the outcomes, which will be predictably polarized, but for the backstabbings on the way.


Start Nothing, Finish Everything, Die A Virgin

I was raised, as many Western men are, to believe that violence should be the last resort… but when you’re forced to violence, you go all-in and fight until there’s no more fighting to be done. This has proven to be very problematic in Current Year because many lesser cultures have trouble understanding the difference between kindness and weakness. They see a white man falling back from a casual threat and think he’s easy prey, when in fact he’s simply been taught no tactics between “call the police” and “two shots to the chest, one to the face”. A lot of crime from vandalism to sedition doesn’t require the latter, leaving white boy an easy victim.

Women in particular have trouble appreciating a policy of seeking cooperation over pecking order. This combined with womens’ liberation is a very toxic situation, as the men who are quicker to employ violence are also quicker to get the princess out of her panties.

Even worse, the Western man’s aversion to violence (founded upon the fact we’re so scary good at it) has led us to create laws that prevent the “finish everything” half of the equation under all but the most dire of circumstances. One increasingly cannot shotgun a burglar without first checking if he’s armed, or kneecap one’s Dindu neighbor with a tire iron for defacing his property.

At least, not legally. Which only begs for civil disobedience and lying in self-defense. This is the greatest failure of Start Nothing, Finish Everything: the finish is often visible to law enforcement but the start is not. Oops.

Therefore, you must train yourself for variable levels of self-defense. Some suggestions:

1. The bodycam route. Documenting everything is a slow but fantastically effective way to handle chronic nuisances and low-level threats. Never let it be “his word against your word”. But you do need to procure appropriate cameras for the job.

2. Project menace. Visible muscles, strong eye contact. Never admit you’re wrong or say you’re sorry in an argument with a potential threat. Don’t stare at the ground when you walk or keep hands in pockets. This is an excellent choice for men who are already tall or otherwise visually dominant. Avoid gang-style clothing, however. You don’t want to be mistaken for an actual gang-banger. You only want that perp to decide he’ll wait for the next potential victim.

3. Pepper spray. Now, I have actually used spray in combat. It’s a very poor choice for its primary advertised purpose of women scaring off “rapists” and a poor choice for any street combat because it takes too long to first take it out (you probably aren’t carrying it holstered on your belt) and then aim it (a nozzle’s direction isn’t as obvious as a stick’s or handgun’s). God help you if you “piss into the wind” or the nozzle is clogged with lint or dirt.

However, the one way pepper spray shines is when dealing with multiple chimps enjoying a chest-thumping at your expense. Dindus tend towards pack behavior and are too self-conscious (or stupid) to don personal protective equipment before humiliating you. Three Dindus complaining to cops that you sprayed them, well, who’s the likely aggressor? The one or the three? So, spray is the best option when possibly encountering groups.

If you go this route, get two of the same spray and expend one for target practice. Don’t assume you’ll figure out how to work it in the heat of the moment.

4. Martial arts. Not everybody is fit enough for this and it doesn’t help deter an attack, but winning is always nice and being psychologically comfortable with hurting others is at least half of being good at fighting. Again based on my experience, don’t try anything fancy. Knock them down (shove them back, knee kicks, grab their arm and yank) then either run or kill. There’s no shame in running.

But running won’t get you sex… and being the guy people run away from is very preselective, as a pickup artist might say.


Mr. Trump, There’s A Better Way to Screw California

Understandably frustrated at the statewide breakout of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Trump warns he’s considering pulling federal law enforcement out of California:

“If we ever pulled our ICE out, and we ever said, .Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves,. in two months they.d be begging for us to come back. They would be begging. And you know what, I’m thinking about doing it,” the president [said].”

No, Mr. President, that’s what Commiefornia wants. You can’t win by doing what your enemy wants you to. They won’t even realize, should you carry out your threat, that there’s even a correlation between “fewer cops” and the new crime wave.

That’s because California’s leaders aren’t human beings. They’re human parasites. Parasites understand only one thing, their stomach. The needs of the moment.

So, that’s how you hurt them. You starve them. You pull them off their host.

Instead of calling Homeland Security and telling them to shut down California operations, call the Treasury and tell them to stop sending welfare checks and other transfer payments to California’s residents.

The first month those welfare checks don’t come, liberals will LOSE THEIR SHIT. I’m talking full-on psychotic episodes in the halls of power.

The second month those welfare checks don’t come, the National Guard will be deployed to stop the rioting in all the bastions of Leftism. Illegals will start migrating to ICE offices asking for bus tickets to the border.

The third month those welfare checks don’t come, the leaders of Commiefornia will either be seeking asylum in China or dead at the hands of their parasitic constituents.

And look, you’ll have tens of billions of extra dollars in the Treasury!

Best of all, you won’t be punishing the innocents of California for the crimes of the guilty.


Obama Judge Resigns, Resents Being Forced to Punish Criminals

Kevin Sharp, now a former Federal judge of Tennessee, gave a speech at the Cato institute on why he was unable to preside with a clean conscience. I’ll skip most of the speech to focus on two examples Sharp gave during the speech to explain his decision to give up a lifetime appointment after six years of service. By way of Instapundit.


Ultimately, President Obama nominated me, and the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed me. When I took the bench in 2011, I was a former military, God-and-country, middle-of-the-road guy. I took my job very seriously. I understood the importance of the judiciary. …

Early on, I sentenced a young man, Antonio, who was 27. He was charged as a felon in possession of a firearm. He had been convicted of two armed robberies at 17 years old. At 27, Antonio is doing what we all hope a criminal defendant does after being convicted: he gets a job. He is in contact with his family. He does not do drugs. He does not drink. But Antonio had been doing one thing that he should not have been.

Antonio was driving down the street and, without being too graphic, he and his girlfriend were engaged in an activity that caused him to cross slightly over the double-yellow line. The police saw it and pulled him over. The police suspected his girlfriend was a prostitute, so they split Antonio and his girlfriend up and asked them questions. The police realized based on her answers that she in fact was Antonio’s girlfriend. Then, the police said, .OK, we are going to let you go. Oh, by the way, do you mind if we search your car?. Antonio, forgetting that he had an unloaded pistol under the front seat of his car, responded, .No, go ahead..

Antonio was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Because he was convicted as an adult in his prior crimes, his mandatory minimum sentence was 15 years. I read his case and thought this could not be right. Fifteen years? What are “mandatory minimums.? I did not fully understand what they were at the time. I spent the next several days trying to figure out how to get around the minimum sentence . it cannot be done.

Two points. One, I can accept a judge with limited experience with criminal law; civilian oversight is an American tradition; but I cannot accept a judge with deficient knowledge of criminal law. Sharp not understanding sentencing guidelines indicates Obama didn’t select him for his competence.

And two, why is he upset that a convicted armed robber, who obviously served less than ten years in prison for two armed robberies, is going down hard for possessing a firearm that he knew he was not allowed to have? If he’s impulsive enough to fuck his girl while driving a car then he’s impulsive enough to do another armed robbery with the handgun he kept ready. Thank God the police searched his car and caught him early.

There are real sob stories about minimum sentencing but this is not one of them.

Several years later, I had the same conversation with myself. This time, the case involved a 22-year-old kid, Chris Young. He was caught up with a group of members of the Vice Lords, a gang known for running cocaine and crack through middle Tennessee. Chris was not a member of this gang. He was an aspiring rapper who would hang out with members of the Vice Lords because one of the gang members had a studio. He was occasionally asked to make crack, but he did not know how.

Chris was arrested as part of a 30-person indictment for drug conspiracy. Chris was such a minor player in the drug conspiracy . he did not even know how to make crack. I think the only reason the DEA arrested him was because he happened to be at a gas station when they took down the Vice Lords. leader. He was at the wrong place with the wrong group at the wrong time. The only evidence showing Chris’s connection to the gang were tapes from their wiretaps where Chris is talking to the gang’s leader about how he cannot figure out why the crack he has cooked did not turn out right. The leader gets frustrated and finally says, .I.ll just come over and do it myself.” That was basically the extent of it.

The prosecutor told Chris, .You can plead guilty, and we will give you twelve years.” Chris is 22 and thinks, .12 years, no! I’m so minor in all of this, I will go to and win at trial.” His lawyer convinces him that he should not go to trial, given his two prior drug convictions (one for less than half a gram of crack, which is about a sugar packet of crack) and the penalty he could face if convicted again . a mandatory life sentence. At this point, the prosecutor changes his mind and says, .12 years was last week’s price . this week’s price is 22 years, and if you turn this down, next week’s price may be higher.. A 22-year-old, Chris thought, .22 years is life! I.ll take my chances at trial.” Only three people of this 30-person group arrested, by the way, went to trial. Everybody else pled guilty. At trial, these three people, who happened to also be the lowest members of this conspiracy, all got life in prison. Every single one of them. Yes, the Vice Lords were selling a lot of drugs, but not Chris, and not the other two defendants who also decided to go to trial. They all are behind bars for life.

A young man aspiring to the thug life with two convictions for possession of cocaine runs with a notorious drug-trafficking gang and is recorded trying to cook crack for the bosses… how is he a sympathetic figure?

Sharp explains:

Before being sentenced, Chris was asked, .Do you have anything to say?. He responded, .Yes, I do.” Chris gave a speech that he clearly had worked on for a long time. It was very articulate. He showed his understanding of economics, philosophy, and history. Here was a kid who had such great potential. I told you about my background because I recognized some parts of Chris in me. Chris was self-taught. He had taught himself Greek philosophy . and Greek names are not pronounced the way they are often spelled, so he is pronouncing these names phonetically, .SO-craits?. .YOU-rope-ides.? I struggled to understand who he was talking about. Then I realized, I know who Chris is talking about because I did the same thing when I started reading in the military. I would go to the library and pick up books and pronounce these names the way kids are taught in elementary school. I listened to Chris make the same mistakes I had made . the difference being I had opportunities that Chris Young did not have. I convinced myself then and there that .I cannot do this, I am not going to do it anymore..

Textbook care-based morality. This is maddening. First, men like Sharp destroyed fathers via the divorce courts. Then they destroyed the backup fathers–the military (which Sharp himself credited with raising him), the Church, the Boy Scouts and so on. And then, they want to see crooks go unpunished because the crooks didn’t have the chances they did… the very chances they destroyed.

A liberal is someone who treats people unjustly because he wants the world to be more just.

Judges like Sharp are why we had to create minimum sentencing guidelines in the first place. He did a good thing by resigning his cushy, lifetime appointment. He was clearly unfit. Care to guess how he’s now trying to give fatherless young men the chances he himself had? Spoiler alert, it doesn’t involve a vow of poverty:

From http //sanfordheisler.com

Judge Sharp is the Managing Partner of Sanford Heisler Sharp’s Nashville office, which opened in the spring of 2017. He joined Sanford Heisler Sharp after serving as a judge on the U.S District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee from May 2011 through April 2017, serving from 2014 to 2017 as the Court’s Chief Judge. …

In 2004, David Sanford and Jeremy Heisler founded Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, in an effort to litigate public interest and social justice cases that add a significant value to individuals in society as well as improve the community on a whole. Since opening its doors, Sanford Heisler Sharp has achieved unparalleled success securing extraordinary systemic changes in corporate America. In addition, the employment law firm has recovered more than one billion dollars for individual clients and the United States government.

Leopards and liberals can’t change their spots. Sharp took the judgeship thinking he could use it to force outcome-equality upon society. When the rules thwarted his efforts, he opted out for work in the lawfare-industrial complex.


Idaho’s Dan Foreman Does His Job

From the Associated Press, America’s source for all things Newspeak:


BOISE, Idaho (AP) . A Republican Idaho state senator yelled “abortion is murder” at a group of students who were pushing for birth control legislation at the Statehouse and now faces an ethics complaint after a post from an unverified Twitter account told them to discuss “killing babies” with a Democratic lawmaker.

We could stop right here, that paragraph was so beautiful. Feminazis weaponized some college kids into lobbying for abortion and got a deserving, blunt callout by a legislator aiming for a better legacy than dead babies on demand. Preach, brother Dan!

About a dozen University of Idaho students from Sen. Dan Foreman’s district in the city of Moscow had traveled nearly 300 miles (483 kilometers) for a scheduled meeting with him Monday. They planned to lobby for a Planned Parenthood-backed measure in the conservative state that would allow women to receive up to a 12-month supply of prescribed birth control and would promote better sex education on college campuses.

Foreman abruptly canceled the meeting, and the students left a note and a box of condoms in his office before heading to other meetings with lawmakers. He later passed the students in the hallway, and several recorded him shouting, “Abortion is murder.”

“I’m a Roman Catholic and a conservative Republican. I think what you guys are doing stinks,” Foreman says on the video.

Abruptly canceling a meeting suggests that the students made their appointment under false pretenses. Certainly, gifting a box of condoms to a practicing Catholic was not a gesture of goodwill.

Notice: Planned Parenthood bussed protesters in from 300 miles away. That’s how much support they don’t have in Boise.

The students were not at the Capitol to talk about abortion, said Paul Dillon, public affairs director of Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho.

Dillon, you piece of shit, Catholics do not distinguish between abortion and birth control and you know it. Not to mention, both Catholics and Protestants do not distinguish between abortion and Planned Parenthood.

“Even if you disagree with what we have to say, there’s no excuse for that kind behavior,” Dillon said. “He was being a bully.”

You thought the Idaho Senate was a safe space? Thank God you’re still wrong.

Later Monday, a tweet from an unverified Twitter account purporting to belong to Foreman said someone in the group had a “wild outburst” at the meeting time and directed the students to “go talk about killing babies with Maryanne Jordan,” a Democratic senator. That prompted Jordan to file an ethics complaint against Foreman.

“It’s one thing to disagree with policy, it’s another thing to position something like that against another lawmaker,” Jordan said. “This type of behavior is beneath the Idaho Senate.”

Ethics complaints against lawmakers are typically anonymous, so while Jordan confirmed she filed a complaint, she did not reveal many details about what was included.

After the complaint was filed, the roughly year-old unverified Twitter account was deleted, then briefly reactivated to say it was not affiliated with Foreman and deleted again. A message seeking comment with the account manager was not immediately returned.

Textbook smear campaign. Senator Trigglypuff opens an ethics investigation on the basis on an unverified Twitter account that said it was affiliated with Foreman, then said it wasn’t, then disappeared?

If this turns into a point-and-shriek then give what moral support you can to Dan Foreman. He’s earned our respect as evidenced by the closing comments of the article:

Last year, body-camera video from the Latah County Sheriff’s Department showed Foreman swearing and shouting insults with an unseen and unidentified male on Sept. 14 . the first day of the county fair.

It ended when the deputy asked Foreman to move along.

The senator also has faced scrutiny over an email response to a constituent’s concerns over climate change. Foreman called global warming “nonsense” and said it was a scam used by left-wing fanatics to raise taxes.

Earlier this year, Foreman stormed out of a committee meeting when the chairman didn’t allow him to argue a measure that wasn’t on the agenda.

Foreman, 64, is a retired U.S. Air Force officer and retired Moscow police officer. He was narrowly elected to the Idaho Senate in 2016 in a surprise upset, ousting longtime Democratic Sen. Dan Schmidt.

During his first legislative session, Foreman shocked both parties by backing a proposal that would have classified abortion as first-degree murder . not only for the woman but also the doctor.

The measure never got a hearing, but Foreman has remained an outspoken opponent of abortion. This year, he has supported toughening Idaho’s abortion laws through a ballot initiative.

So, there are good politicians in America! Here’s that bodycam video:



Book (Store) Burning

I keep following Vox Day because he’s my only window into the SF/F world. There was a time I enjoyed reading… not so much anymore and VD is the only guy able/willing to clue me in on the depths of the publishing world’s depravity.

Barnes & Noble has entered its predictable death throes.


The news comes as no surprise but B&N is the only chain bookstore left in California since Borders died in 2011. Soon, there will be no physical bookstores remaining except used bookstores that sell the equivalent of free Project Gutenberg. End of an era, indeed.

I speculate, what would have happened if B&N has morality-policed the publishing companies? If they’d refused to sell any books containing necrophilia or anti-Christianity? Perhaps they’d have gone out of business… but they went out of business anyway because people don’t want to buy those books. They could have refused to kick the can down the road and solicited higher-quality product from lesser publishers. What they actually did can only be described as appeasement.

Cooperating with evil is like paying Danegeld: a temporary play for enough time to eject from a problem that is not going to leave just because you feed it. Save yourself if you have no power but push back if you do. If your suppliers demand you sell shit to dupes then tell them to go to Hell. If you don’t… then the consequences will not pass you by.

Sic Semper Converged.

Meanwhile, Amazon is winning the biggest-box Big Box retailer award. But I’m having the same trouble with Amazon that I did in the brick-and-mortars: “Will this book that costs $$$ offend my conscience to the point where I refuse to even finish reading it? Does this new author belong in a mental hospital?”

Many of the books I’ve purchased from Castalia House don’t hit my fancy but they’re SAFE for me to purchase. I’m not going to end up reading about a villain getting an erection the size of a fire extinguisher from drinking the blood of an obnoxious evangelical Christian. I’m not going to read about a Mary Sue supersoldier who plots the overthrow of his government because fifteen years ago, he was conscripted away from the girl he had such a strong teenage crush on that he actually said hello. I’m not going to read about suits of powered armor whose recharging plugs are located in the crotch. I’m not going to read about how the U.S. Constitution is saved by a flaming homosexual. (That offering was from Sarah Hoyt.)

Burn in Hell, Barnes & Noble. You brought this upon yourself. You offered me filth in so many endless varieties that my only winning move was not to buy… that my love for reading fiction withered away.

Escape From Los Angeles, Reality Edition

I don’t advise sane people to leave California. There’s nowhere to go and plenty of niches in which to hide from the Sacramento Satanists. I do, however, advise sane people to leave Los Angeles specifically. There’s a story to that and its time has come.

In 1990s Los Angeles, the Dept. of Water & Power was operated separately from the city government. Different budgets, different leadership, etc. The city council was cash-strapped as a result of its breathtaking corruption (read up on Gil Garcetti on Infogalactic for a peek, then notice his son is the current mayor). The DWP was better managed and actually running a profit.

The city council kept trying to tap into the DWP’s budget, pressuring it for no-interest loans and trying to plant moles in its leadership. DWP fought back by cooking its books. It spent all its profits on spare parts, hid them everywhere and then complained to the city council that they didn’t have any money to loan out. Leave us alone, we’re broke too!

Then the 1994 Northridge Earthquake happened.

The good: DWP was able to restore basic services city-wide in less than 72 hours because its stockyards were already overflowing with replacement parts.

The bad: LA city council noticed DWP pulling a new power grid out of its ass.

The ugly: LA city council was denied potentially millions of disaster relief dollars because infrastructure was repaired too quickly.

I can’t say how that story ends because I lost my DWP contact shortly afterward but if bureaucratic corruption is any indicator, by now Los Angeles infrastructure has been sabotaged by the city council to ensure the deaths of thousands the next time disaster strikes. Our leaders will not be denied their bribe money.

New Orleans? Puerto Rico? The suffering of their people was <i>useful</i> to their governments. A bargaining chip for more cheese. Los Angeles is now both a geological powder keg and an ethnic powder keg, and managed by people who see human misery as a chance for personal profit… get the Hell out of there.


Women Want FEMININE Men

Time and again in the Manosphere, I see the idea that the men women desire are masculine men. If this was true then feminism would have been the best thing to ever happen to the human race. Women would desire the most successful men, have his babies and the world would be bright and optimistic because women act female and men act male, just as God designed us to.

Ain’t happenin’.

Let’s recap the Game principles of what male traits most sexually excites women:

1. Sociopathy

2. Narcissism

3. Manipulation

4. Lack of responsibility

5. Exciting/Drama

6. Dominance (height, wealth, etc.)

Those are, in fact, feminine traits. Women are opportunistic lovers; natural narcissists and manipulators; craving emotional experiences even at the cost of safety. The one trait that doesn’t match up is dominance. Therefore, the most desirable men are the ones who behave like women while possessing dominance, or “male privilege”. This makes sense from the Christian perspective of women envying men. The sexy man is everything she wants to be and as a result, she looks up to him (when not trying to control him).

Masculine traits:

1. Preference for logic & abstract thought over emotional experience

2. Self-control and discipline

3. Honesty

4. Future time orientation

5. Not preoccupied with status; accepting of others as peers

The two lists are nearly antonyms. Women are as strongly opposed to masculine traits in men as they are attracted to feminine traits in men. Any comparison of a Christian Grey to an Ernie Engineer will yield similar results.

The idea that masculine men are attractive to women is a falsehood that should be confronted vigorously. This is straight out of Christianity. We know from Proverbs that women are life-destroyers and king-killers. Solomon was a case study. Christ and Paul advised avoiding women if it’s at all doable. Christ even went a step further and said some men would be denied the chance to be sexual successes.

Female approval NEVER gives you your man card. In fact, if women are constantly attracted towards you then it’s a good bet you’re somehow displaying emotional instability, sexual perversion or casual violence. Time to review your body language and wardrobe!

Heck, one can simply cite Alpha Fux/Beta Bux as proof that Barbie prefers the flaming homosexual playboy to Cubicle Charlie. But who makes the better father?

This pattern holds true for the spiritual side of sexuality as well. Humans don’t want God the Father. We want Zeus the “I’m the deity you wish you were!” God is overly patient, not vulnerable to our manipulative efforts, rarely exciting and way too nice to His enemies. In our frustration, all the gods that humans have invented over the years behave exactly like humans down to Zeus’ marital troubles, only with superhuman power and a general absence of consequences. Some religions like Shinto make gods of actual humans.

Denying oneself and submitting to healthy authority is never easy. Not for women, not for humanity. The converse of this is if that submission does comes easily then that’s a red flag to be investigated, not a proof of virtue.

We have feminism because women naturally hate and envy healthy masculinity.


Why Stop School Shootings?

When you think about it, what’s the point? Such shootings are a consequence, not a cause, and are therefore healthy indicators of Progress. Stopping them is like building a cruise missile, loading it with nerve gas, deploying it, firing it at a city and then trying to protect the target city by exploding it the moment before impact. No, the time to stop that threat was long, long ago, and no ultra-draconian last-quarter-second intervention can possibly create a happy ending.

School shooters are the pinnacle of liberal achievement. Teach kids that human life isn’t sacred; that they’re nothing but highly organized chemical puddles with no objective morality beyond what they can get away with. Then, teach ’em that the only purpose of life is breeding while twisting their sexuality into every unnatural fruity flavor that Satan’s whores can invent. Then, punish the kids who obey the rules without mercy while turning a blind eye to the kids who don’t. Pick out the fatherless boys with behavior problems for “special attention”.

And then, act totally surprised when a few graduates of your horror factory decide to stomp some chemical puddles in order to feel better in their sexually violated solipsism. Well done, shooters! You learned what you were taught. You even killed some of the most vile human rights abusers in the world–public schoolteachers–and that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

I only wish the price hadn’t been your souls. My apologies, but I’m not in a position to help you. Not having kids of my own means I’m as welcome on a school campus as a leper. Less so, since anchor babies probably aren’t screened for contagious disease.

Memo to the teachers and administrators of every public school that desegregated its bathrooms, preaches Godlessness and teaches sodomy is healthy: you deserve to be murdered by your students. You bred that monster, now feed it.


The Face of Trump Derangement Syndrome

From http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-daca-immigrants-dyrdahl-roberts_us_5a8310a5e4b0892a0353acfa?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313 dated Feb. 13, 2018:

Jordon Dyrdahl-Roberts made headlines last Wednesday when he tweeted that he’d quit his government job [a legal secretary at the Montana Department of Labor and Industry] rather than process paperwork that could lead to the arrest and deportation of undocumented immigrants.


Now he’s broke and out of work. But his stand against President Donald Trump’s treatment of immigrant families has inspired hundreds of people to reach out and say thanks . and to set up a GoFundMe page for him. In a matter of days, as of Tuesday, they had raised more than $11,000 to help Dyrdahl-Roberts regain financial footing.


.I am deeply humbled,. he told HuffPost, choking up. .I’ve got some breathing room now..

Oh, wow. He decided to spite Trump by starving his own family like he threatened to. What exactly did Trump do? Enforce existing immigration law in Montana? This is pathological. But wait, the story gets better!

Ironically, the person who set up his fundraising page is Juli Briskman, who got fired last fall for flipping off Trump’s motorcade in a photo that went viral. Strangers rallied around .she-ro. Briskman and raised tens of thousands of dollars to help her out, too.

Briskman told HuffPost on Tuesday that she decided to set up a GoFundMe page for Dyrdahl-Roberts after she saw his tweets about quitting his job and felt like they resonated with her concerns about Trump’s “creeping authoritarianism..

Bitch, that “creeping authoritarianism” was nothing but driving on the road… sigh. Never mind. You might as well give your man-earned money to one jobless bum with a sob story as another. Check that, you should give the money back to the men who earned it.

That picture is such perfect meme-bait… why resist?


The Four Medieval Archetypes

There’s been considerable demand in the Manosphere for a replacement to Vox Day’s famous Alpha-Omega sociosexual ranking system. While that system has been incredibly insightful, predictive and influential, the fact that its primary metric is sexual success is a limitation in as sexually screwball a society as the West has become. I myself qualify as both a Delta (by behavioral traits) and Omega (by sexual success). Therefore, I’ve come up with a political/economic ranking system. (Personality ranking systems already exist in quantity.)

The Four Medieval Archetypes:

Most people start off as Pawns with neither much success nor naturally caring about our fellow man. It’s the natural state of the human soul. The defining characteristic of Pawns is their willingness to trade their limited resources for the protection and patronage of the successful. The direct implication here is they let their motivations be defined by others or the needs of the moment; they don’t need much in the way of abstract morality.

As people gain experience and opportunities, shifting right tends to happen more quickly than shifting up. The Merchant is the “self-made man”. He’s confident enough to take risks, willing to be unpopular and defines his own path rather than accepting a preconceived one. He is not necessarily wealthy or working sales.

Like Pawns, Kings are less concerned with doing right than with gaining power. The difference is they’ve reached the point where they are the ones calling the shots in society. Kings and Pawns seek each other out the former need minions and the latter want a share of the King’s success.

Knights also have society-directing power but are less interested in using it for selfish gain. They tend to be driven either by ideology or by correcting wrongs committed against them earlier in life or in warding off threats to general society. Knights find kinship with Merchants who, being independent, are always nervous about being robbed by Kings. In fact, the most common form of Knight, impartial law enforcement, is often directly funded by Merchants.

Pawns do not automatically graduate to Kings and Merchants don’t always graduate to

I’ve tried hard to not have any category be designated as the “bad” category because any ranking system like this works best when people honestly self-identify into the correct categories. Anybody wishing a morality ranking system should check out Christianity and give up.

Where Do You Fit?

The dominance axis is easy. It’s a question of how much ability you have to influence those around you. A fat bank account helps, too. Supervisors, business owners, pundits and church leaders are all fairly dominant whereas work that involves little social contact or impact on society are not.

The selfish-social axis is harder. Maslow’s hierarchy provides a “current” pushing one rightward but one’s worldview and natural abilities also play large roles. Indicative questions:

Do I view life as a zero-sum game?

Can I provide for myself during hard times?

Do I have strong in-group preferences?

Would I continue working if I won the lottery?

Don’t be too quick to self-identify as a Merchant. Being a Pawn is safe, effective and rewarding with minimal effort. All that most people want from life is knowing that they and their families will be provided for.

Women never reach the Knight category. That’s a near-impossible level of mental abstraction and independence for them.


Kings favor aggression and constant, low-level violence, much like the sexual Alpha and for a similar reason: maintaining one’s success becomes its own job. Women being natural Pawns, are attracted first to Kings and then to Pawns. Successful Merchants can score women in a stable society but their independent lives can become liabilities if wifey can frivorce them during the inevitable low points.

Identity politics are the bread and butter of the King/Pawn setup. Clear definitions of loyalties and a lack of (acted-upon) selfish counter-interests make it a very strong setup. The price, however, is slavery and lack of imagination. The Merchant/Knight setup maximizes freedom and innovation at the price of solidarity. The KP setup is extremely hostile towards the MK setup because given the chance, Kings will harm people who aren’t personally loyal to them before they harm people who are. If they don’t have a strong protector then many will make a point of doing so. MKs aren’t naturally hostile in return–your life, your choice, they might say–but not being stupid, they realize that strong Kings are existential threats. This is typically what gives rise to Knights in the first place.

A possible reason so many Americans were able to be duped into supporting weaponized immigration is because the Baby Boomers contained an unusually high percentage of Merchants. Lacking the strong in-group preferences of Pawns, supporting immigration for the emotional hit of virtue-signaling was an easy mistake, especially since the perpetrators of modern immigration had a stranglehold on news media at the time to prevent feedback.

Many Merchants today wish they were Pawns but can’t find a King offering them a tolerable deal. A typical example is an alt-Righter who refers to Donald Trump as “the God-Emperor”. I don’t think they mean it ironically; I think they mean it as, they hope the current President sweeps all their troubles away and brings them the success, safety and (frankly) continued existence that the Left tries so hard to exterminate.


They Believed the Man!

Man Accuses #MeToo Leader of Sexual Misconduct

Feb. 8, 2018


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) . California Democratic Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, the head of the Legislative Women’s Caucus and a leading figure in the state’s anti-sexual harassment movement, is accused of groping a male staffer from another lawmaker’s office.

J. Lee Grady Now Openly Lying About the Bible

Charima Magazine’s J. Lee Grady has long been a feminist in Christian clothing (https://gunnerq.androsphere.net/2017/10/16/ten-truths-the-church-tells-women/). But he’s still at it, now with even more arguments that make even less sense.


Feb. 7, 2018

…A couple of weeks ago, the Calvinist preacher [John Piper] stirred up a hornet’s nest when he said on his “Ask Pastor John” podcast that women should never be allowed to teach seminary classes. Piper said: “If it is unbiblical to have women as pastors, how can it be biblical to have women who function in formal teaching and mentoring capacities to train and fit pastors for the very calling from which the mentors themselves are excluded?”

Anyone who knows Piper’s background would not have been shocked that he said this. He’s a strict complementarian, meaning that he believes only men can teach and lead in the church and that women must follow them supportively. Most Calvinists, by definition, share this view. In the world of Reformed Christianity, women have agreed to take a back seat.

I certainly support Piper’s right to hold what he views as a faithful interpretation of Scripture. But because he is injecting his opinions into the mainstream, I can’t sit back and ignore the controversy when I’ve dedicated my life to empowering and supporting my Christian sisters who are in ministry. Piper’s words not only insulted women; I believe his message grieved the Holy Spirit and could seriously hinder today’s church from advancing the gospel.

No Christian would support another believer’s views as valid until he tries to teach them to others. Either the believer’s views are wrong and the Christian points it out, or the believer’s views do not become invalid just because they might gain acceptance. We deal in truth, not in market share.

Before I start fisking his reasons, however, there’s an important theological point to make:


Prophets are people who deliver messages from God. That’s their job. They are not responsible for what the recipients do with the messages. It is very disturbing that a Charismatic is conflating “I have a message from God” with “I am an important leader who must be obeyed”. Teaching and leadership are positions of authority. Prophecy is not; the authority comes from the source of the message, not its conveyance. Jeremiah was not responsible for the Babylonian Exile; Jonah did not save Nineveh.

Now then. *snaps on surgical gloves*

1. The Old Testament upholds the value of women as teachers. Proverbs tells us that, in a family, wisdom comes from both father and mother. “My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the teaching of your mother” (Prov. 1:8). But a mother’s teaching and godly influence are not restricted to the home. In Proverbs 8, wisdom is personified as a woman preaching in the streets!

On what grounds is a mother teaching her children NOT restricted to her home? Can she boss the neighbor’s children? The neighbors?

This is a thinly-veiled application of Alinsky’s “crash the system” rhetoric. “Did your mother teach you to look before crossing the street when you were five years old? Did she tell you about Jonah being swallowed by a whale? Then you should have no problem with female clergy!” Maybe Dad lets her do that because he trusts her and kiddie was too young to be taught much of anything anyway? But no, if Mommy can lead her five-year old then Jezebel can wear Ahab’s crown.

And if wisdom was once anthropomorphized as female in Scripture then all women must be… um… what point was he trying to make?

We have several examples of women who held leadership positions in Israel, including Miriam and Deborah. And we also see that when Israel was backslidden, and the book of the Law had been forgotten, King Josiah sent his representatives to find a “prophetess” named Huldah (see 2 Kings 22:14) who delivered the word of the Lord. At a time when even the priests had fallen away from God, this faithful woman continued to teach the truth, and she did not hold back from speaking it.

All of them were prophetesses. Miriam’s only act of leadership was criticizing Moses and she got punished by God for that. As for Huldah, the message she gave to King Josiah at his request did not even contain commands.

2. Jesus gave women their voice back. Jesus ministered at a time when women had no rights. Yet He elevated women to a position of dignity, and He especially reached those who suffered as social outcasts and abuse victims. Jesus also gathered a group of women and discipled them at a time when Jewish rabbis believed it was wrong to teach women from the Torah. He even sent the Samaritan woman to preach to all the men of her village.

That’s a lie: Jesus did not send the Samaritan woman to preach. (John 4:28) In fact, he never sent any of the women around him to preach or teach. All of his disciples and Apostles were male. It’s true that Jesus treated women like human beings; so what? This kind of all-or-nothing mindset indicates Social Justice, not Christianity.

The gospel liberates women from second-class status. And it surely empowers women to speak for God.

“Speak for God”. Oh my, that’s a troubling statement even for a man to make. Prophets do not speak for God; they relay what God speaks. Teachers do not speak for God; they teach what God has already taught. Christ is not dead, the canon is closed and He didn’t leave behind a priesthood to act in His absence.

3. We have New Testament examples of women teachers. I’m not sure how John Piper would explain the ministry of Priscilla, since we see her in the book of Acts instructing the young apostle named Apollos (see Acts 18:24-28). Priscilla is the grandmother of all women seminary teachers. She and her husband, Aquilla, traveled with the apostle Paul and helped lay the spiritual foundations of the early church. To ignore Priscilla’s ministry is to dishonor a true mother of the faith.

A husband & wife team is useless as an example of standalone female teachers. Grady is stretching Bible accounts out of all reasonable proportions.

Piper believes only men can teach men, especially men who are called to be pastors. But by maintaining this position he discounts the ministry of biblical woman such as Euodia, Syntyche, Chloe, Nympha, Junia and Phoebe, all who worked alongside Paul.

Phillippians 4:2: “Now I appeal to Euodia and Syntyche. Please, because you belong to the Lord, settle your disagreement.”

1 Corinthians 1:11: “For some members of Chloe’s household have told me about your quarrels, my dear brothers and sisters.”

Colossians 4:15: “Please give my greetings to our brothers and sisters at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church that meets in her house.” Nympha was mentioned as an address.

Romans 16:7: “Greet Andronicus and Junia, my fellow Jews, who were in prison with me. They are highly respected among the apostles and became followers of Christ before I did.”

Romans 16:1-2: “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea; that you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints, and that you help her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many, and of myself as well.”

The first four “ministering women” are straight-up lies and Grady must know this, having surely looked them up many times to use them as examples. Junia… hmm… some translations give Junias… why would a woman have been put in prison with men? Nothing in the Bible indicates Junia is female.

Phoebe is the only notable of the group but “please help her out” is not “worked alongside Paul”.

4. We cannot use Paul’s words as a universal ban on women teachers. Piper and other complementarians base all their opposition to women teachers on 1 Timothy 2:12, where Paul says he does not allow women to “usurp” a man’s authority. Yet Paul also allowed Priscilla to teach, sent Phoebe as a deacon to Rome (see Romans 16:1-2), and defended the right of Euodia and Syntyche to do ministry work (see Phil. 4:2-4). So obviously what Paul told Timothy was not a universal, all-inclusive directive; he was addressing a specific heresy in the Ephesian church that required swift discipline.

Paul allowed Priscilla & Aquilla to help him; that cannot be construed as Paul violating his own commands against women teaching. Looser translations describe Phoebe as a deacon but tighter ones like KJV and NASB don’t, and women don’t pass Biblical deacon qualification anyway. Phil 4:2-4 does not speak of any “right” to do ministry work; it does speak of the local church helping those women straighten themselves out.

To all my sisters I say: Don’t be discouraged. If you sense the call of God, and you know the fire of the Holy Spirit is burning in your heart, don’t let the narrow views of some Christians stop you from pursuing your dream.

Or the narrow view of Scripture as written.

Men may seek to limit and restrict you, but God has the last word.

Preserved as Scripture. Not subject to change.

He declared on the day of Pentecost: “Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17b).



Racist Black Butthurt

Black Lives Matter is upset after the Super Bowl riots because police went easier on disorganized white rioters who didn’t attack cops then they normally go on organized black rioters who do attack cops:

“Somehow, it seems there’s a line drawn in the sand where destruction of property because of a sports victory is OK and acceptable in America. However, if you have people who are fighting for their most basic human right, the right to live, they will be condemned,” Black Lives Matter New York President Hawk Newsome told Newsweek. …

Emergency responders struggled to keep up with rioters as they marched through Philadelphia streets leaving destruction in their wake. Revelers reportedly ripped down light posts, caused entire structures to collapse, and damaged vehicles and store buildings as they celebrated the Eagles’ 41-33 victory.

But officials appeared slow to condemn the destruction caused by rioters, offering seemingly gentle requests for everyone to “go home.” …

“Still going strong in the [Office of Emergency Management]. But, if everyone could go home that would be great,” Philadelphia Police Sergeant Brian Geer wrote on Twitter at 9:30 p.m., adding: “We have to get some rest to start planning a parade in the morning.” …

Newsome called the lack of condemnation from officials “a glaring example of white privilege.”

“You can riot if you’re white and your team wins, but if you’re black and being killed, you can’t speak out,” he added.

Black Lives Matter, which works to raise awareness around racial inequality and police brutality, first came under the public spotlight after organizing protests in response to the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a black teenager, who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a white man, [GQ: not white] while walking home from a convenience store with a bag of Skittles and a drink.

Since then, the group has faced strong opposition from law enforcement and groups like Blue Lives Matter and All Lives Matter. A recent survey conducted last year also found that 57 percent of people in America had an “unfavorable view” of BLM, with the majority of those opposed to the group being white.

Not surprising when blacks introduced the concept of “my race, right or wrong” to North America. It must suck to watch police go lighter on drunken idiots than “Knockout Game” players avenging their local drug pusher. And of course, it doesn’t help when one proves his case by lying about the facts of his case.

San Francisco Adulterer Decries Toxic Masculinity

Starting with http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Legislature-releases-details-of-sexual-harassment-12547495.php

SACRAMENTO . The state Senate and Assembly released a cache of documents Friday revealing 20 substantiated complaints of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior against lawmakers or high-level legislative staffers over the past 12 years.

The nearly 100 pages of documents include cases against six current and former elected officials: Republican gubernatorial candidate Travis Allen, an Assemblyman from Huntington Beach (Orange County); Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-Inglewood (Los Angeles County); Sen. Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys; former Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, D-San Fernando Valley (Los Angeles County); former Sen. Roderick Wright, D-Inglewood; and suspended Sen. Tony Mendoza, D-Artesia (Los Angeles County).

The article goes on to give case-by-case details. But we should forgive them because they try to be champions and models:


A top California official who had an affair with a subordinate more than 10 years ago while he was mayor of San Francisco says a culture of “toxic masculinity” is fueling violence against women in America.

Gavin Newsom, California’s lieutenant governor who is running for governor of the Golden State in elections scheduled for later this year, was asked about the affair in light of the #MeToo movement.

Newsom was recently asked in an interview in front of an audience at the University of San Francisco why voters in California should consider him for governor given his past indiscretions.

.I would say the same thing that I said (then) to the voters in San Francisco: that I acknowledged it. I apologized for it. I learned an enormous amount from it,. Newsom said according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

And I am every day trying to be a champion and a model – not just for women and girls – but to deal with the issue that we need to focus on, which is the crisis with men and boys in this state and in this country..

Maybe women should choose a man who never committed adultery to be a champion & model of healthy masculinity? But I doubt that’s who they’ll actually choose because honest men are bad for drama. And so in the Gynocracy of Commiefornia, the gatekeepers of public morality are its most spectacular failures. “Follow my example,” Newsom might say. “I porked my campaign manager’s wife, destroyed his marriage and got away with it by saying Oops when I was found out… vote for me!”

At least #MeToo promises to make midterm elections interesting.


Expose On The D.C. Episcopals

If it wasn’t official before, the D.C. Diocese of the Episcopal Church is in full, feminist-fueled rebellion against Almighty God.


The Episcopal church in the Diocese of Washington, D.C., passed a resolution last week to stop using masculine pronouns for God in future updates to its Book of Common Prayer.

.Over the centuries our language and our understanding of God has continued to change and adapt,. the drafters of the resolution stated. The drafters said that referring to God using masculine pronouns is to “limit our understanding of God.”

“By expanding our language for God, we will expand our image of God and the nature of God,” they stated.

But Clergy delegate The Rev. Linda R. Calkins from St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Laytonsville, Maryland, challenged the delegates to go further.

Calkins read from Genesis Chapter 17, in which God tells Abraham .I am El Shaddai.” She said that if Episcopalians “are going to be true to what El Shaddai means, it means God with breasts..

.Having studied much feminist theology in my masters. degrees, I wrote a thesis on liberation and freedom and non-equality in feminist theology and existential counseling,. Calkins told the delegates, as reported by The Institute On Religion & Democracy.

Unholy succubi, Batman! She’s trying to alter God’s nature by changing the words used to describe God’s nature. I’ve blogged before about the uneasy association between women and reality but this is the same as claiming the Author of Life is a social construct.

They blaspheme the name of Christ. Let’s see what we can expose with this convenient PDF they published. I archived it on my site because future generations need to see exactly what we’re complaining about.

Click to access booklet_2018_final.pdf

Buckle up.

Beginning on Page 12, we have a photo directory of the Diocese’s fresh blood. The count is… 32 men and 6 women. Wow, that’s not at all what I was expecting. Wigs seem to be the fashion in D.C., though. Hang on… wait… FFS, these are women?

Oops, one of them is male. Guess which? Yeah, it seems like all this transgendering is nothing but women turning themselves into men in defiance of DNA. They should call it retrogendering.

Actual count is 12 men, 26 women. I think.

Moving on to finances on page 34, the diocese is in the black. A full 30% of diocese income is a “1973 Ruth Soper Fund”. A quick Net search turned up a very interesting article:


When the Diocese of Washington became short of money in [about 1999], the administration began to use interest from the Soper Trust for its operating costs. Within the diocese, numerous arguments and resolutions came out of the internal conflict over the Soper Trust, including a successful 2002 convention vote requesting that the administration of the diocese cease from using her money for operating costs and use it only for direct ministries to help suffering humanity.

Diocesan officials continued its practice of using the Soper money for operating expenses. Then in 2010 without making this information known publicly to the General Convention of the Diocese of Washington, officials quietly initiated the lawsuit to end the Soper Trust. …

So this long saga, beginning with Mrs. Soper’s generous contributions to many charities, ended sadly. In 1967 when designing her will, Ruth Gregory Soper believed that her money and its ensuing legacy be supervised by a bank she trusted, Riggs Bank and its successor, PNC Bank. The Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler seemed to consider the Soper Trust almost inconsequential and refused to help preserve this over 40-year-old trust.

As the trustee, PNC struggled to honor Mrs. Soper’s wishes, yet their lawyers lost the war following court decisions. A second trustee, Thomas D. Murphy, took the lead of the Soper Trust and, in less than two weeks, allowed the entire trust to be terminated and the money turned over to the financially strapped Episcopal Diocese of Washington.

That’s some dirty pool, there. I wonder how many other converged churches are quietly making money grabs… and timing the money to die when they do. The D.C. diocese is timing the Soper fund to run out in 20 years per footnotes on page 43.

Skipping ahead to Resolution #1 -On Becoming a Sanctuary Diocese, page 93:

Resolved, that the people of the Diocese of Washington, as disciples of Jesus Christ and persons of faith and conscience, take seriously the biblical mandate not to wrong or oppress the alien in our midst, and in faithfulness to our Baptismal Covenant, oppose the policies of the incumbent Executive Branch that target undocumented immigrants for deportation while also placing undue restrictions on refugees seeking safe haven in the U.S…

Hey, it’s Trump Derangement Syndrome! TDS sufferers, did you know it’s illegal to oppose Trump’s immigration enforcement efforts? It’s “8 U.S. Code ? 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens” and punishable by up to 5 years per illegal alien.

Dear God, there is no bottom to the immigration war. No words to explain it with. I used to think it was misguided altruism but that doesn’t begin to explain the furor and intensity with which the SJWs want to flood the West with vibrants.

Resolution #2 – On Inclusion of Transgendered People

Resolved, that Th e Episcopal Diocese of Washington affirms that all transgender people, and anyone whose gender identity and expression differs from that assigned at birth, are beloved children of God…

“Assigned at birth” means freaking DNA. Gender is not a social construct because YOU CAN SEE IT UNDER A MICROSCOPE!

and be it further Resolved, that The Episcopal Diocese of Washington support educational, pastoral, liturgical, and legislative efforts that seek to end the systemic violence against transgender people, calling special attention to the rise in violence against transgender women of color;

What systematic violence? My ancestors let you take over the government, the Church, the courts and the working world, and today men like me hide for our own safety. I hear UK police chiefs are giving you cry rooms and menopause leave. Oh, right. It’s a microscope thing.

and be it further Resolved, that the Episcopal Diocese of Washington encourage all parishes to remove all obstacles to full participation in congregational life by making all gender-specific facilities and activities fully accessible, regardless of gender identity and expression.

Two words: children’s bathrooms.

Resolution #3 – On the Gendered Language for God

MGTOW Life: Money Changes Things

I nearly missed a dustup between youTube MGTOWs Turd Flinging Monkey & DDJ on one side, and MGTOW 101, Kris Cantu & Angry MGTOW, the makers of some kind of Red Pill Cryptocurrency, on the other. The latter made accusations and attacks on sponsors against the former… DDJ gives an excellent recap for the interested:

While I’m not familiar with the principals, the matter seems straightforward. Cantu & associates tried to monetize the MGTOW movement, the monetization turned out to be fraudulent and onetime allies got stuck between dollars and buddies.

There’s an adage that you never go into business with family or friends. Excellent advice. It’s hard to separate “Larry, your bowling partner” from “Larry, the nitwit who convinced you to invest your life savings in Sears and Marvel Comics”. Same thing with MGTOW. It isn’t something that is meant to be profitable, heck, if society was healthy then MGTOW wouldn’t be something that would exist. We men would be getting rich the simple way, mixing work ethic with frugal spending.

Buy the T-shirt? Sure! Subscribe to get more content/entertainment? Of course! But once big money gets involved, fallout is more likely than not. There’s too much anonymity in the MGTOW movement and often, too much plain old wishful thinking… and if money starts disappearing then fingers start pointing. Desperation is an ugly thing.

Friends don’t give friends investment opportunities.


Foot-Washing Shames Clergy

There’s a discussion on servant leadership and Christ’s foot-washing scene on Dalrock’s that has gone so far awry that commenting is pointless. So…

The setting was the Last Supper. Christ’s betrayal and Crucifixion was imminent. He used his final opportunity to prepare His disciples for succeeding Him. That was when He did the foot-washing, a chore reserved for the shit-listed of the household in an age when people walked everywhere in sandals on dusty/muddy roads. Christ & disciples being guests, it would have been exceptionally bad manners to make them clean themselves. Hence Peter’s complaint of Christ’s doing it. Christ was too important to get dirty!

Christ got dirty. His explanation in John 13:14-16: “If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him.”

He quickly emphasized the point in 13:34: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”

That was the purpose of the foot-washing and the sermon of the Last Supper. Those who would lead the Church in Christ’s absence were to be the servants of the Church, not its beneficiaries like the Levites and Pharisees.

Judas sold out to the devil on the spot. Apparently, he’d been on Team Jesus for the status and promise of fat pickings. The instant Christ said & demonstrated that he’d be doing the Church’s scut work was the instant the Pharisees’ counter-offer of 30 silver became the smart move.

The foot-washing scene had nothing to do with marriage. It’s out of context and inconsistent with plainly stated marital commands. It does have everything to do with… projection.

Modern clergy are modern Judases and here’s the proof: they do not love us, the Church’s Joes and Janes. Oh, they say all the right words and do all the right rituals… but they shun the non-academic, increasingly hard lives we must live. They aren’t concerned for the welfare of the falsely accused. They poison their own daughters to never trust a husband. And if little Timmy now has to use the girl’s bathroom at the local school, well, just enroll your kids in my parochial school. We have a special exemption!

Consequently, modern clergy project Christ’s principle of servant-leadership onto other men that Christ didn’t teach it to because they’re constantly aware of their own guilt.

Pharisees. Judases. On a good day, Levites. Christ found them all unfit and replaced all formal Church authority with “give a damn about your fellow man”. That is, after all, the reason Christ accepted Crucifixion.
