The Chrysler Turbine Car Reflects Bygone Era of American Greatness

Chrysler achieved the feat of putting a jet turbine engine in a car in the 1960s

Imagine, a jet-powered car. Chrysler made it a reality back in the 1960s, even though the idea was unfortunately short lived. The Chrysler Turbine is just what the name says – a jet turbine powered car. It’s quite a remarkable engineering feat, and not only reflects an era when not only the chrome was thick and the women were straight (Michael Savage’s great line) but an era when American car companies were fearless instead of gutless.

Jay Leno has one of the last surviving Turbines. You can watch Leno driving his Turbine around as well as demonstrating a lot of cool, vintage technical demonstrations about how the Turbine works at Jay’s Garage on YouTube. It sounds like a jet sitting on the tarmac when he fires it up. Leno says of the Turbine:

Most were destroyed by Chrysler for tax and liability reasons, which is a shame, because to this day everyone who rides in a Turbine says, “Whoa, this feels like the future!” You turn the key and there’s a big whoosh and a complete absence of vibration… I think it’s the most collectible American car—it was so different. Most of all, the Chrysler Turbine is a reminder that all the cool stuff used to be made in the U.S. I hope it will be again.

Other than a couple handfuls of survivors (nine in total), all Chrysler Turbines were recalled and crushed. Perhaps because a turbine engine, once realized and after a few generations of engineering could likely eliminate the need for most mechanics. The turbine engine only used 1/5 of the number of moving parts as a regular car engine, and turbines are dead reliable as they power jet aircraft all over the world. Of the 1.1 million miles of driving accumulated by testers, downtime on the cars stood at only 4%. The Chrysler Turbine could also use just about any type of fuel, an engineering feat that surely upset the Seven Sister oil companies of the day. Gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, vegetable oil, and even Tequila – as demonstrated by Mexico’s then-President Adolfo Lopez-Mateos – could power the Turbine.

The Turbine is all the more impressive since Chrysler engineers worked hard to have cool exhaust coming out of the back of a very hot engine, and succeeded as exhaust gas temperatures were LOWER than other automobiles of the day. Also in the “cool” department, the Turbine does not have a traditional “coolant temp” gauge, it has an inlet temp gauge which reads 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Performance and fuel economy from the engine was good for its day, and continued refinement of the design would have no doubt advanced the design.

Other than the engine, everything else about the Turbine is pretty much stock 1960s Chrysler, except the body of the car which was manufactured in Italy. Its design is not gaudy but elegant, another impressive achievement in an era in which automotive styling could in your face. The project was totally abandoned by 1977.

The Chrysler Turbine is a symbol of time when America was self-confident in its ability to do just about anything, like put a man on the moon, and the car reflects that pride. It also reflects the ballsy nature of men who ran corporations back then. They were fearless and willing to try new ideas instead of rehashing old ideas in pursuit of quarterly profits. How unfortunate for us the micromanagers and bean counters took over.

The fear of failure is worse than failure itself. Something we should remember as men and as a nation. While the car was never a commercial success, perhaps because it was so costly, the idea was sound and continued development of the Turbine should have continued. The shelving of this idea by Chrysler means the dominance 100-year old design of the internal combustion engine continues to this day. How many more great ideas were shelved because of the influence of big oil companies?

For now, all we can do is enjoy this little slice of history and wonder about what might have been.

Poll of the Week | August 30, 2016

Are you getting the hell out of Dodge if the Clintons are put back into office?

Are you getting the hell out of Dodge if the Clintons are put back into office?

Each Tuesday we pose a question to get feedback from you, our readers. Comments are welcomed. If your response does not conform to the answers presented or you would like to expand on your answer, leave a comment. Each poll opens on Tuesday and is closed the following Monday.

Results from last week’s poll, Do you think the Clintons are criminal masterminds: A full 61% of The New Modern Man readers said, yes, the Clintons are archetypal sociopathic masterminds. Whether it be a long (and growing) list of bodies of people who were “Arkancided” or the dirty dealings of the Clinton Foundation or the latest scandal involving Hillary’s health, the Clintons are no strangers to dirty politics. However, 34% of our readers think they’re just lucky to have the right (i.e. globalist and elite) connections, and the only reason they get by with murder is the fact they’re doing the bidding of the power structure. Only 4% said they’re just a sweet, innocent little old couple. (Huh? I put that answer in there as a joke…I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion).

This week’s poll asks Are you considering leaving America in the coming year? In the face of coming censorship under a possibly Hillary administration along with the already gynocentric, Beta-male exploiting tax system and growing marginalization of men and especially white men, the number of people renouncing their citizenship is at record highs. Not only that, some estimates say the number of Americans living abroad has shot up to nearly 9 million souls fleeing tyranny. The power structure is already signaling censorship is coming by setting up coordinated attacks on the alt-right by the power structure to set up the narrative that censorship is needed to deal with us dissidents (i.e. the Joel Stein Time hit piece, Hillary’s speech on the alt-right, and ensuing copycat hit pieces from lazy ass news rooms who localize whatever they read in Time). Are you going to stay and hope for the best or get out while the getting is good?

Election Fraud Made Easy: Voting Machines Can Be Easily Hacked

Electronic voting machines have security holes you could drive a Mack truck through

Electronic voting machines have security holes you could drive a Mack truck through

Sitting ducks. That’s how most voting machines in America can be described. The question is, were they designed that way? Or is it just another case of government bureaucracy FAIL. Computer science professors are calling out the sheer ineptitude with which these machines were designed. They’re easy to hack, potentially cancelling out the votes of thousands if not millions. What’s worse, that’s assuming the programming wasn’t designed with an algorithm to rig elections in the first place. And, as we will see, there’s a long history of funny business at the ballot box in America.

Dan Wallach, a computer science professor at Rice University told the press how crappy electronic voting machines really are:

This isn’t a crazy hypothetical anymore. Once you bring nation states’ cyber activity into the game? These machines, they barely work in a friendly environment.

Wallach tried to tell government bureaucrats in Houston electronic voting machines were a bad idea before they were purchased. But, of course, know it all paper pushers didn’t listen.

My testimony was: ‘Wow, these are a bad idea. They’re just computers, and we know how to tamper with computers. That’s what we do.’ The county clerk, who has since retired, essentially said, ‘You don’t know anything about what you’re talking about. These machines are great!’ And then they bought them.

Wallach continues:

We read the code, and found really, really bad problems. Actually, let me change that. We found unacceptable problems.

Andrew Appell, another computer guru at Princeton University echoes Dan Wallach’s concerns. Elections could be hacked by another nation or even a pimply faced kid down the street.

It’s well within the capabilities of a country as sophisticated as Russia. Actually, it’s well within the capabilities of much less well-funded and sophisticated attackers.

Jeremy Epstein of the non-profit SRI international also voiced concerns about how easy to break into many voting machines are.

You could have broken into one of these with a very small amount of technical assistance. I could teach you how to do it over the phone. It might require an administrator password, but that’s okay, the password is admin.

Epstein continues:

Bottom line is that if no elections were ever hacked (and we have no way of knowing if it happened), it’s because no one with even a modicum of skill tried.

Often, the best cons are those hiding in plain sight. Could vote rigging really be that simple? Did the government purchase these machines knowing they could be hacked at will by even a novice, and then proceed to rig the outcomes of close elections? There is precedent for this scenario, as strange as it may seem to some.

Historian Tracy Campbell, who wrote Deliver the Vote, claims our electoral house has never been in order. There has always been cheating, even since the earliest days of America. Who cheated? Why everyone from Boss Tweed, William Randolph Hearst, Huey Long, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, to George W. Bush, as well as countless local and state politicians of all parties.

Interestingly, Clint Curtis just testified before Congress, under oath, that Congressman Tom Feeney had approached him way back in 2000 (when electronic voting became a big topic after the Bush-Gore election debacle) about rigging the machines in such a way that close elections would be tilted to a predetermined winner. The whole system seems to be rife with cheating.

Sanders supporters have long alleged fraud by Hillary, but they'll still go press the "D" this fall

Designed to Be Hacked?

POLITICO just published an article claiming voting machines could be hacked in as little as 7 minutes by virtually any hacker. This threat assumes that election supervisors are clean as the driven snow and wouldn’t be complicit in rigging elections in their districts. Contrary to the what most of the oblivious American public thinks, elections can be and have been rigged even before computerized vote hacking became a big story. POLITICO reported:

1948 saw the infamous “Lyndon Landslide,” in which Johnson mysteriously overcame a 20,000 vote deficit in his first Senate race, a miracle that Robert Caro reports was the almost certain result of vote rigging.

A new twist just out from the FBI confirms “foreign” hackers could have compromised two state election rolls. One in Illinois and one in Arizona. While no votes were affected, data on 200,000 voters was downloaded in Illinois. This shows the ease with which not only voting machines but databases with voter information can be hacked.

Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder of a cybersecurity firm says the problems with potential vote tampering exist from the ballot boxes themselves all the way back to where the votes are counted. The potential for hackers break into voting systems exists at every level of this poorly thought-out and poorly executed electronic voting plan. Government computer systems aren’t much different from the laptop used to write up this article.

Those are just regular PCs. God knows what’s protecting those.

Many state electronic voting machines are well over 10 years old, too…which makes them easier to hack.

Just this year during the primaries, Hillary Clinton did the best against Bernie Sanders in areas where voting machines are the most compromised, according to blogger Doug Hatlem.

Hundreds of jurisdictions throughout the United States are using voting machines or vote tabulators that have flunked security tests. Those jurisdictions by and large are where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is substantially outperforming the first full wave of exit polling in her contest against Senator Bernie Sanders.

Of course, there have been widespread allegations of fraud by Sanders supporters throughout the 2016 campaign. Hatlem points out correlation does not equal causation, but a strong correlation does at least warrant an investigation. But we all know there will be no investigation.

So, what do we have? Proof that voting machines are easily hacked and could have been designed to tilt election results. Computer security analysts telling us what a joke electronic voting machines are from a security standpoint. Election rigging precedents from decades past. Strong correlations between precincts with faulty voting machines and areas where Hillary did best in the 2016 primaries.

This all comes together to create quite a concern for the legitimacy of U.S. elections past and present. It seems the power structure heeded the words of Joseph Stalin well when he said those casting the votes decide nothing, and those counting the votes decide everything.

Yet again, we see an American institution rigged from top to bottom. Do you have faith in this system? Is the House of Cards already stacked in Hillary’s favor?

Unity Needed in Men’s Communities

Rather than fighting amongst ourselves we should be fighting a common enemy - feminism

Rather than fighting amongst ourselves we should be fighting a common enemy – feminism

Unity is strength. Division is weakness.

If there’s one thing that becomes readily apparent when one spends a lot of time in online men’s communities, it’s that there’s a lot of discord among men who really should be able to get along with each other. While nobody is recommending we all get together and sing Kumbaya, we do need unite as best we can towards a common enemy – feminism and its parent, the gynocentric state.

This isn’t possible when we are vivisecting every men’s topic and fighting over minutiae. The great divide places most men into one of the following groups, often opposing each other:

  • MGTOW – Men Going Their Own Way
  • MRA – Men’s Rights Activists
  • PUA – Pick Up Artists
  • Traditionalists

There’s a lot of agreement among all four divisions that women have gone completely off the rails thanks in large part to social engineering and Cultural Marxism. The friction lies in what each group thinks should be done about it. MGTOWs by and large want to be left alone to do their own thing and many have given up on women. MRAs want legal action to put men on an equal footing with women in a gynocentric society. PUAs are happy gaming women and getting laid. Traditionalists want a return to the days when men and women needed each other and complimented each other rather than competed with each other. None of our ideals will be achieved if we are fighting amongst ourselves.

Our strength is there’s a lot of overlap in our ideals, and many of our solutions can compliment that overlap. This is how change is made.

Instead of allowing ourselves to be subdivided and conquered, we need to focus on what goals we share. We all want to see an end to women running society off the rails. We all want men to be treated like human beings instead of disposable meal tickets. We all want to get laid on the regular. And whether we want to admit it or not, a certain segment of society needs to be married and have kids to keep everything running and to bring up a responsible and well-balanced next generation.

Let's get together and lay out a game plan in the Culture War

Let’s get together and lay out a game plan in the Culture War

Common Goals

In short, we all realize that the current status of society is unsustainable in the long run. That’s what should bring us together. Banding together to force a change in the direction of the ship of state as it sails on towards a figurative Category Five storm for civilization should be our common goal.

The division is baffling to me sometimes. It’s like seeing an army of men being destroyed by feminism and the gynocentric state fighting over about who has the best tactics and whose ideals are more important, and continuing to get pelted rather than uniting against a common enemy.

We are all brothers fighting in a great Culture War. It behooves us to be considerate of and tolerant of each other’s points of view rather than taking a one size fits all approach with our narratives. There should be room for disagreement without us insulting and fighting each other.

We should decide what our big, common goals are, wage war against feminists and leftists to win big battles and then we can subdivide the “booty” from that victory among ourselves. Sun Tzu knew the importance of unity in his timeless work The Art of War:

If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them.

It’s the old maxim divide and conquer. The tragedy is we have already separated and are in disaccord before even entering into battle. As long as we are divided, we don’t stand a chance against the monolithic state and culturally entrenched Marxism and feminism. But if we come together and make our voices heard we can become a force to be reckoned with.

This simple African proverb sums up the best course of action for men’s communities: If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Let’s get together and deliver a knockout blow to feminism, social engineering, and the New World Order. It’s getting late in the game and we need to get our shit together.

Feminists Defend Migrant Rapists, Attack White Knights

Barbro Sörman, a feminist politician said rapes aren't that bad when non-Western men do them

Barbro Sörman, a feminist politician said rapes aren’t that bad when non-Western men do them

In yet another strange twisting of logic, Swedish feminists say they would rather be raped by migrants and refugees rather than saved from rape by local men. They also say rape is worse when Swedish men do it rather than when the immigrants they love so much do it. What a strange, socially engineered world we have entered in the 21st century.

Earlier this year, when around 200 Swedish White Knights attacked rape-fugees to defend Swedish women, these girls spun up a really neat collective hamster rationalization and attacked the men who were defending their honor instead of rapists. Here’s what they did:

Feminists created the hashtag #inteerkvinna (translated as #notyourwoman) where they spewed their hatred over racism, fascism, white men and many other things that can be loosely tied to the events with some cognitive dissonance. In short, they made a collective tantrum on social media over the fact that white European men are standing up to the rape-fugees.

It has been said women invite, men invade. Call it a societal shit test in which women have evolved psychological and sociological behaviors that test to see which group of men has the stronger seed, the invaders or the locals. So far, the invaders are winning and will be the ones women increasingly support and breed with, as they continue to select for brutes instead of nice boys.

The feminists even went so far as to say “It’s YOU I’m afraid of” to Swedish men, the same men who are unbelievably the descendants of Vikings now completely de-balled by their own government. A Swedish feminist politician named Barbro Sörman said it’s “worse” when Swedish men rape than when the wonderful refugees do it:

The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse. Take a picture of Sweden as an equal society, where all are nurtured in equality. Then you can say that if you are brought up in it, you make an active choice to not be equal, rather than if you are brought up in a society that is not equal.

That narrative is straight out of Orwell’s Animal Farm. Two legs good, four legs bad.

There is little doubt Sweden is the rape capital of Europe, but it's illegal to say who is doing the raping

There is little doubt Sweden is the rape capital of Europe, but it’s illegal to say who is doing the raping

Rape Capital of Europe

Of course, since the “refugee” invasion orchestrated by treasonous Western governments and globalists, Sweden has become the rape capital of Europe. Swedish police even go so far as to blame “Nordic alcohol culture” and “non-traditional gender roles” for the rape epidemic rather than the elephant in the room. Never is it mentioned in the media that Islamic culture condones rape as the hoardes come in. As reported by The Daily Caller:

As Muslim men immigrated to Sweden, they brought with them an Islamic culture sanctioning rape. It is a culture bad enough inherently in the treatment of its own women. Under sharia, Muslim women serve little more purpose beyond catering to their husbands’ sexual demands. A non-submissive wife runs the risk of being raped by her husband.

It gets worse.

But under Sharia, this rape culture also impacts upon Swedish women as they are “infidels” and, as such, are — according to Allah’s teachings — sanctioned targets for rape by Muslim men. Such an Islamic belief system has born witness to a drastic increase in rapes in Sweden — more than a thousand fold — since first opening its doors to Muslim immigration.

As many of us in the manosphere know, violating the narrative has become a worse crime than raping someone if the actions rather than the words of Western politicians are considered. Sweden is even censoring statistics that show immigrants are doing most of the raping. Hint: It’s not totally emasculated Western men doing the raping.

Interestingly, between 1995-2006, the Swedish government tracked gang rapes, identifying a drastically increasing trend. Unbelievably, after discovering the problem, it then adopted an ostrich-like “head in the sand” approach, terminating any further studies on them. Apparently the government’s fear of being labeled Islamophobic proved greater than its concerns about warning Swedish women about the threat. While no studies on gang rape have been conducted since 2006, one can assume these numbers have continued to rise.

The Soviet…er…European Union is also complicit in covering up the rape epidemic. According to Violence against women: an EU-wide survey, Swedes now do not classify criminals based on ancestry or religion. This is total, suicidal insanity.

Over the past 10 to 15 years, immigrants have mainly come [into Sweden] from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia. Might this influx explain Sweden’s rape explosion? It is difficult to give a precise answer, because Swedish law forbids registration based on people’s ancestry or religion.

So, even though one group of people is committing crime it’s illegal to say which group it is. This mentality is likely to spread to the United States in subsequent liberal administrations if Hillary is selected this year, and the electoral vote (the one that actually counts – disregard the popular vote statistics pushed by the media) shows Trump far behind her in key battleground states and the electoral college.

If ever women’s true nature was in doubt, behold as they defend rapists and invaders over the men who gave them one of the most prosperous and peaceful nations in the history of the world. This is what you get when women and media spin dominate politics.
