    If you are still in Southern California, the Bay Area, or NYC, you approve of this behavior, and you're no longer welcome in America. Stay there, please.

    Rates of autism climb to new highs in the US, with California setting record numbers

    The first study, the CDC's 2020 autism prevalence report, found that California set new records, diagnosing 45% more boys with autism than any other state in the network. Nearly 7% of all 8-year-old boys in the San Diego region are estimated to have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to the report.
    NY Democrats propose 4% tax on Netflix, Uber to fund MTA

    New Yorkers may soon be forced to pay more for their streaming subscriptions like Netflix and Hulu in a bid to stave off a major MTA fare hike.

    Democratic members of the New York state Assembly on Thursday submitted a budget proposal that would impose a 4% sales tax on popular video and audio streaming services.

    One of Kunstler's best: The Season is Here - Kunstler

    Of course, the newspaper USA Today chose transgender activist Leigh Finke for its Women of the Year award because in the USA of the here-and-now (today, for instance), boundaries are a thing of the past, and if a woman of the year happens to come with the “package” that signifies male-of-the-species, you’d better ignore that and go along with the gag — or prepare for the punishments that will come down until your morale improves.

    The transgender movement has crystalized into the Party of Chaos’s favored instrument for enforcing its ethos of unreality on a population obdurately stuck on thinking in categories, on making hateful distinctions between things. Better to live in a protective miasma of undifferentiated sensation than a cruel state based on pattern recognition where one is incessantly prompted to understand how objects and life-forms around us differ, where things begin and end, and what all that means relative to your own ideally amorphous existence.

    Mattias Desmet, Belgian author of the 2022 book, The Psychology of Totalitarianism, proposed that a political faction subject to “mass formation psychosis” — the group hysteria that sets the scene for tyranny — would demand that the public swallow a cavalcade of increasingly absurd ideas in order to soften up their brains, so as to make it easier for leaders (influencers) to push them in any desired direction. I would propose that we have probably achieved peak brain-softening now in this land.

    The only thing left to challenge is the distinction between being alive or dead, which is exactly what you would get in Zombieland, a place that the Party of Chaos (and its mentors in the World Economic Forum) long to take you to, where you will have nothing and be happy! And never think a hateful thought, or any thought not pre-cooked for you and served up by The Party like so much dim sum. Choose that or it’s the nothingness and bliss of the grave. It’s all the same to the Party leaders. Voila: the totalitarian nirvana!

    Folks are beginning to grok how all this works now after a years-long epic mind-fuck by the increasingly malevolent permanent bureaucracy running a nation on the glide-path to destruction. Not a few people around America still-capable of independent thought are less than avid for liquidation. And certainly not willing to be absorbed into the amoeba-like blob of redundant, undifferentiated protoplasm that a totalized population must be in the end-state of political Wokery.

    Now, in the spring of ’23, Woke is suddenly mutating into a general wake-up call. The animals are stirring from their long sleep of compliance as ruin stalks the land. The season of concentrating the mind is here. When it becomes a matter of sink-or-swim, people once again remember the difference between being dead or alive. The test is on.

    Especially if you have kids. If not, consider yourself behind enemy lines, with everything that entails.

    I think the liberal fringe was right about vaccines.

    French mayor in support of new asylum center in seaside town has his house burned down

    I do hope this was the French protecting the French, and not just another "refugee" biting the hand that feeds. Although the latter would be kind of funny.

    The worst part about that in my mind, is that the amount of surveillance and the level of technology, has never been done so easily/publicly, at such a small local scale, for something so minor. It's a county department enforcing local rules, not a federal agency surveilling an international terrorist network.

    I'd also add to the harder daddy pronouns, you should also be actively doing what you can to impede the tracking of you. Get a faraday cage for your phone, turn it off where able, don't make it trivial to track you 100% of the day.

    Jeffrey Tucker being no fool, this is plausible: How They Convinced Trump to Lock Down ⋆ Brownstone Institute

    That something very likely revolves around the most substantial discovery we’ve made in three years of investigations. It was Debbie Lerman who first cracked the code: Covid policy was forged not by the public-health bureaucracies but by the national-security sector of the administrative state. She has further explained that this occurred because of two critical features of the response: 1) the belief that this virus came from a lab leak, and 2) the vaccine was the biosecurity countermeasure pushed by the same people as the fix.

    Knowing this, we gain greater insight into 1) why Trump changed his mind, 2) why he has never explained this momentous decision and otherwise completely avoids the topic, and 3) why it has been so unbearably difficult to find out any information about these mysterious few days other than the pablum served up in books designed to earn royalties for authors like Birx, Pence, and Kushner.

    Top secret military intelligence is a plausible explanation for Trump's actions, has there ever been any supporting evidence that's come up elsewhere? Theories as to why Trump did what he did and continued to not do are seemingly sparse.

    Makes sense to me. Though not infallible, Jeffrey Tucker has been deeply involved in the journalistic effort to discover these critical, driving moments behind the pandemic and Trump's decisions within the context of timeline, and it fits against all of the big touch points of his psychological profile.

    It's kind of impressive, actually -- very well done if utterly despicable.

    Itís time to shit on lawyers.

    We have eviscerated the medical profession and exposed the deep corruption in science. But what about law?

    Any lawyers here (or employed in the field)? Out yourselves. Over half of Congress and Presidents are or were lawyers. Who knows at the state and local level?

    In any case, fuck you too. You produce nothing, you make molehills into mountains (for profit) and you are not really all that bright. It could be argued (I am) that lawyers enable almost everything bad especially in the broad context of this thread.

    For example, who benefits more from men competing in woman powerlifting? The transgendered? Families? Woman? The spirit of the sport? No. Lawyers.

    Why AREN'T we killing you first?

    Tax the whole state just to keep an enormous, poorly-run city afloat. Yeah, that's New York alright. Our elections are so rigged we don't have much chance of fixing any of this, either. Home - New York Citizens Audit Just look at that report summary.

    Imagine a scene from Get Smart with the Cone of Silence, for example. These are the events in the life of statecraft that infuse powerful people with a sense of their personal awesomeness. The fate of all of society rests on their shoulders and the decisions they make at this point. Of course they are sworn to intense secrecy following the great reveal.

    The revelation was that the virus was not a textbook virus but something far more threatening and terrible. It came from a research lab in Wuhan. It might in fact be a bioweapon. This is why Xi had to do extreme things to protect his people. The US should do the same, they said, and there is a fix available too and it is being carefully guarded by the military.

    It seems that the virus had already been mapped in order to make a vaccine to protect the population. Thanks to 20 years of research on mRNA platforms, they told him, this vaccine can be rolled out in months, not years. That means that Trump can lock down and distribute vaccines to save everyone from the China virus, all in time for the election. Doing this would not only assure his reelection but guarantee that he would go down in history as one of the greatest US presidents of all time.

    This meeting might only have lasted an hour or two – and might have included a parade of people with the highest-level security clearances – but it was enough to convince Trump. After all, he had battled China for two previous years, imposing tariffs and making all sorts of threats. It was easy to believe at that point that China might have initiated biological warfare as retaliation. That’s why he made the decision to use all the power of the presidency to push a lockdown under emergency rule.

    To be sure, the Constitution does not allow him to override the discretion of the states but with the weight of the office complete with enough funding and persuasion, he could make it happen. And thus did he make the fateful decision that not only wrecked his presidency but the country too, imposing harms that will last a generation.
    Read the whole thing, and then think about the 2024 election. How long has it been since the President of the United States was actually the President?

    Cops update: Afroman for the win! – HotAir

    It’s hard to argue that police officers entering somebody’s home have an expectation of privacy. In fact, they don’t have an expectation of privacy even when they aren’t in your home. They are government officials empowered with awesome authority, but for some reason, they keep (wrongly) arguing that they can’t be photographed.

    This is constitutionally wrong. This matter has been adjudicated many times, and you have a right to film the police as long as you are not obstructing their lawful duties. I would have to imagine this is doubly true when they are doing something like a home invasion and search using purely passive means. A security camera system is perfectly legal. I have a bunch of security cameras both inside my house and on the perimeter.

    The sheriffs, by the way, systematically dismantled his security system during their search. Hard to come up with a reason they had to do that in order to carry out a lawful search.

    The police don’t want their images being used to make money. Well, OK. I would start by going after the news stations and working my way out. They make a lot of money showing the police doing things.
