Pepsi Ad Celebrating Social Justice Warriors Backfires Spectacularly

On the third of April 2017, the PepsiCo brand released an ad focused on the core values of Social Justice, depicting a demonstration of its usual defenders. The video reaches its climax when ultra-rich SJW Kendall Jenner saves the day and hands a can of Pepsi to an oppressive-looking White police officer. Everyone cheers.

Beta or Codependent

During the early days of the Manosphere our objectives were simple and straightforward: figuring out what sort of behaviour attracts women, and what sort of behaviour repulses them.  This was the cauldron which gave rise to the terms Alpha and Beta, a simplistic (but useful) metric where young Lotharios would ask themselves if they were behaving like A) a simpering dweebo, or B) Like a Boss.

FEED Inc & The Corporate Campaign Dialectic

Seems to me like the “Paleo Diet” bubble on teh Interwebz has popped. Or jumped the shark…or run its course or whatever other cute term you want to use to refer to a fad that has passed and now generally viewed with condescending amusement by those who “now know better.”

Are Toxic Chemicals Turning Boys Into Girls

In the dark warmth of the womb, a miracle unfolds silently and inexorably. An unrecognizable glom of cells begins to take shape according to a master plan laid down eons ago. The tiny mass that will soon form a priceless treasure burgeons into human form with fingers, toes, and a minuscule nose. It is female, and only nature can read the instructions that determine whether the being remains female or transforms into a male.

5 Signs the Justice System is Hopelessly Corrupt

The entire statist system is beleaguered and reeling from inherent problems and issues that are grossly out of balance with natural order and cosmic law. The justice system is one aspect of the statist system that is especially corrupt. From the bottom-up/top-down from the lowly street cop at the bottom, counting quotas, to the entrenched supreme court judge at the top wielding absolute power (that tends to corrupt absolutely), the justice system has never been more oppressive and overreaching. One has to obsequiously walk on eggshells, staying within rigid lines like a good little statist-pawn/debt-slave/propaganda-puppet, just to get through the day without getting locked up for a petty crime. And all of this within a so-called “free” country.

Michael Savage Warns on War with Russia: Who Got to You, Mr. President?

Noting President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war against Germany 100 years ago Thursday, plunging the nation into a costly war, talk-radio host Michael Savage said history seemed to be repeating itself as President Trump considered taking military action against Syria, which is allied with Russia and Iran.

Trump Goes to War: Bombs Syria

Feds Fund “How to Be a Good Muslim” Lessons for Students

Book of the Week


In The Forty Years War, authors Len Colodny, author of the New York Times bestseller Silent Coup, and Tom Schactman, offer an eye-opening exposé of the history of the neoconservative movement—from its little-known role in Richard Nixon’s downfall through its ultimate expression in the preemptive war in Iraq. Groundbreaking and provocative, The Forty Years War documents the neocons’ undermining of the Nixon White House, their success at halting détente during the Ford and Carter years, their uneasy alliance with Ronald Reagan, and their determination to eventually take the U.S. all the way to Baghdad.

“Absorbing…a must read….illuminating and deeply provocative….The Forty Years War is a book that deserves to have a much higher public profile as Colodny and Shachtman are marshalling new evidence to challenge conventional interpretations of late Cold War political history and foreign policy.” (Zenpundit.com)

“[Colodny and Shachtman] tell the story from Nixon to now, and they do it in meticulous and interesting detail.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

“A rigorous and critical examination of the neoconservative movement and the bureaucratic, ideological battles over American foreign policy from 1969 to 2009.…[A] captivating chronicle. Highly recommended.” (Library Journal)

“A well-reported, fast-paced history lesson on the eternal conflict between ideologues and policymakers and the hubris that always accompanies success.” (Kirkus Reviews)
