Concerning the "violence" over the mispronunciation of a person's name: I no longer believe things like this are stupid. I believe this is the beginning of a setup to rationalize actual violence in "defense". Obviously the person in this particular instance can't do much in the way of violence but that's what Antifa is for.

Nice rant.

And about that cabin on top of a mountain that you're contemplating building: sounds like a good idea to me. Just be careful what mountain that you build it on, because it was -5F up in Yellow Stone and thousands of low temperature records were smashed in the past few days in many states - including as far south as right here in Texas.. don't you just love glo(bull) warming? So, yeah, be sure and bring an extra set of snow shoes and plenty of insulation for that cabin of yours.

Regarding the ****head Zombie Apocalypse: it's coming: as each day passes I see the ignorant masses being transmogrified from humans to half-wit human to a soon to be gigantic horde of full-on ****head Flesh-eating Zombie Screamers...

Anybody remember that classic scene in the movie, "Invasion of the body Snatchers" where Donald Sutherland points his finger and SCREAMS!?!

Remember that? Well the movie has now actually become a documentary. If you don't think so just try and reason with a Climate Screamer or a transgender or a vegan. Here's a link to that masterful scene. Watch it for yourself and see what happens when a real human is snatched and turned into a vegan..

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lUXHB5U-Vl....

Regarding Trump: I watched his last two rallies. And I have to say that Trump continues to impress me as the greatest showman of my lifetime. Trump will go down as probably the best political mud wrestler in history. His vulgarity was just masterfully done in the last two rallies. And he verbally body slammed his enemies over and over like a true pro.. It is so glaringly obvious that Trump is a reality showman of extraordinary genius. Trump is actually in the process of transforming the presidential election into The Greatest Mud Wrestling Show on Earth..

.... and for that incredible performance Trump has my full support and vote. And I hope to watch as Trump continues to stick Hillary's broomstick up her ass and every other ass he can possibly make bleed...

I've read that toward the end of 1916 the German army had knocked Russia out of the war and began preparations to transfer about 75 divisions from the eastern front to the western front to end the stalemate they had with the British, and French empires. Seeing that the Russians had folded and that fresh forces were about to defeat the French and British, the Scots-Presbyterian New York City bankers panicked. They had made loans of huge sums of money to some of the hostile powers involved in the European war (hint--not to the Krauts). It is hard to whip up war fever and convince Johnnie to get his nuts shot off to guarantee that the plutocratic banks would not lose their money by having bet on the wrong horse. British propaganda solved this problem by convincing Americans that the evil knuckle dragging, mouth breathing huns were bayoneting Belgian babies, raping nuns, sinking ships carrying Bibles, missionaries, and food to Britain and threatening Deeeemocracy worldwide.
Our government accommodated the banks and lied to get us into war to preserve Deeemocracy and fight a war to end all wars. They lied before and have been lying to us ever since and will lie to us in the future. About the only solution to this problem that I see is to have a government that doesn't generate a huge budget that is worth stealing.
Karl, I hope that you aren't really intending to isolate yourself in a Ted Kaczynski-style cabin in the wilderness.
You are doing good service for the country by helping to educate the educable. Torches and pitchforks will appear when the conditions become dire for the NBA, NFL, and Nascar nitwits.

@Ingar-- yup, we picked the Allied side because we loaned them gigatons more in bullion than Germany. Then Wilson and his espionage act concocted one of the greatest assaults on our civil liberties ever seen. It was the first American police state. Our involvement was a total disaster through the entire century and beyond.

My Self Reliance-- an interesting channel on youtube, for those wanting to wash their hands of civilization.

And this new 'thing' is why I pray for the sweet meteor of death. The next generation of valley girl that almost every young teen girl is mimicking right now. No civilization has ever bred so many worthless, idle human beings, whose only purpose is to eat, crap and fad.

Mr. Denninger - Your idea of bugging out to an isolated cabin sounds great, except that local conditions change, and usually for the worse. My small, formerly crime free town is experiencing a drug and homelessness epidemic. The local meth heads and homeless break into foreclosure houses and copper strip them and/or live there. Calls to the local cops and county codes get little response. The banks who own the homes ignore any requests to board the place up. I am going to board up the foreclosure next door to enhance MY security. Boarding up a home that is not mine is illegal. XXXX it.

Your isolated, lovely cabin may become a trap if homeless dregs or meth cookers move into the area. Might be better to have an isolated plot of land to park your RV or trailer. I own two Aliner trailers and have had great service from them. With an RV or trailer, you can move if the area becomes uninhabitable. I think General Patton said no battle plan survives the first enemy contact. Good Luck.

When the transgender social policy roll out happened, I worked for the judicial branch of government in my state. You had
lawyers and judges and administrators 100% on board with the new ideology because they were implementers and to not implement each and every new progressive edict that came down from above meant not being a team player and that you will lose your spot in the power structure. Non implementers in breaucracies get weeded out, or now with behavioral interviewing, never get put in place to begin with.
There was
a gay EEO trainer (who got paid 100k yr) to go around the state to threaten and coerce and attempt to indoctrinate the rank and file staff that the newly created (by legal fiat) identity group basically had more rights than us, the average people in the majority. And further "the law" regarding rights of gender identity or expression, which no one voted on in a democratic fashion and no governor or lawmaker campaigned on, (that got slipped in a few years before the public push), must be followed for we would be fired for illegally violating these rights. This had practical implications for example, if
someone on Probation was male but identified as a female, the female probation offer must treat him as a her in terms of drug testing and go into the bathroom with him and watch him pee or the probationers' rights would be violated. Common sense, safety, logical, rational, practical arguments counted for nothing.
The liberal, educated, law abiding people of standing that you would expect to guard the integrity of the system they represent are the first ones to sell it out. They are only interested in maintaining or advancing their career interests and will adopt and adapt to anything to maintain their piece of the pie. This is what those at the top have figured out. Tyranny is easy to impose on bureaucratic centralized based societies such as ours.

Greta visited North Dakota just before the snow storm. The Indians showed her around the Reservation. I think her handlers were hoping to start another pipeline style protest. She left with little media coverage. I think the Indians realized she would oppose fracking on their land from which they make large sums of money. (Maybe they told her she could stay in a big tent during the storm.-- not her style (sarc))).

"as each day passes I see the ignorant masses being transmogrified from humans to half-wit human to a soon to be gigantic horde of full-on ****head Flesh-eating Zombie Screamers."

Yes. Today's NPC will be tomorrow's zombie once the food runs out.

Which may happen much sooner than we think if the stories about lousy harvests this year are true (not just in the US and Canada; India has apparently banned onion exports because they couldn't grow enough). Because NASA say the next solar cycle is going to be even less active than this one, so we've probably got at least fifteen years before the weather returns to what we consider 'normal'.

@Handyone55 The meth cookers and sorry-ass white rednecks have let themselves degenerate into something only fit to slaughter and eat. And I don't mean that I'd eat a redneck, but, rather, I'd gladly cut you up into quarters and feed you to my Hounds of the Baskerville - if the hounds didn't come crashing down on you during a full moon, first, before I got to you rednecks myself..

Moreover, my "lovely cabin" doesn't have any close neighbors and I'm personal friends with the Sheirff for over a decade. Choose your ground wisely, including your neighbors. You want hard-core gun loving ranchers who hate the Federal government and hate illegals and hate druggies. Yes, I know conditions can change for the worse, but a wise choice in the first place goes a long way...

Good luck.

KD, I'm seriously thinking of moving to Alpine, north of Big Bend. 9000 people. Next town in 30 miles away. 170 miles to a town over 15,000 people. People are patriots. Still have cowboys. It is a long way to the beach. 15,000 square miles of beautiful landscape. 90 miles of nothing to the gates of Big Bend. Amazing country.

The Germans posted warnings in NY not to sail on the Lusitania. The event happened in 1915. Wilson ran on keeping us out of war, then joined the war immediately after his second inauguration. Probably the biggest mistake in US history. The Lusitania might have been a reason, but it wasn't the reason. Otherwise, Wilson would have lost for not going to war. Lending money to the Brits and French was the reason. Read, free on Mises.org a book called A bubble that broke the world by Garet Garret.

My main questions about 911 center around how all these guys got on the plane and how inexperienced pilots flew those planes and actually hit the targets. Getting lined up from several miles away isn't a piece of cake, at high speeds. Banking a plane in a circle and hitting something on the ground is even more eye popping. I'm sure there is something I don't know. GPS guidance? The explosive story in large occupied buildings is a long shot.

@Emg-- the garbanzo harvest in the Palouse was really crappy because of unusually cold weather. As I type, I'm looking at 1,500 acres of garbs that cannot be harvested.

Funny how all the evidence pointing towards global cooling is 'weather' but any day that is hot is scientific proof of global warming.

"Alpine, north of Big Bend"

I like that area, too, and so did my mother before she died. My mother told me about Alpine over 30 years ago, but I ended up buying a place farther south down in Lajitas. I also like Fort Davis. There's some real gems to be found on the land and among the people in the entire region..

Down in Lajitas there is only one Sheirff. A few years back he got a deputy. So now there's basically two lawmen who cover a lot of ground. The Sheirff used to live here in Houston, and here is where he learned how to be a lawman. I like him. In fact, I never met a lawman in Brewster county that I didn't like.

My wife and family enjoy Lajitas, because of the Lajitas Resort and community. There are people from all over the country and world who now visit and/or live there. In fact, I had to buy another "lovely cabin" somewhere else, because Alpine, Lajitas and the entire region has now been discovered. I remember when Terlingua Ghost Town was still literally a ghost town, now it's a tourist madhouse... The Starlight Theater has raised its prices and you can't even find a place to sit on a Friday or Saturday night - or any night during the winter tourist season. Lots of good looking cowgirls there, tho, so ride'um cowboy...

Fair warning: the Liberals are moving in, and so are some tweekers..

Where I'm talking about going, there won't be any meth cookers. There might be some high up Mexican cartel members, but they won't be there to deal drugs. They will be there to get away from the crime. I have relatives in El Paso. My aunt told me the main reason the crime rate in El Paso dropped was because the Mexican elite moved across the border and would kill anyone who came to El Paso and made trouble. Juarez was and still may be one of the most violent places on earth. Whether true or not, the story makes sense. El Paso is several hundred miles from any major market. I'm sure it is a high traffic area and I'm also sure they wouldn't want much attention drawn to a place they run their drugs.

The river in the Big Bend goes through some tough territory. You have to either go over a high cliff or get through a difficult gorge and go through miles of vacant country. The border patrol is every where and they question the crap out of you when you go through a check point. I have a southern accent and they don't buy it I'm not a Mexican. Brewster County is the middle of nowhere, 200 miles from somewhere. You can drive 5 miles on a US highway without meeting oncoming traffic. Brewster county is bigger than CT and probably has no more than 15,000 permanent residents. Jeff Davis County isn't much different, but I suspect is populated by a few more lefties. The fact they haven't changed the name of the County is amazing.

@Mannfm11 "Brewster county is bigger than CT.... where I'm talking about going, there won't be any meth cookers."

Yes, indeed, there are locations within Brewster county where I've not seen another person for weeks at a time. And I loved every minute of it. And there are all kinds of dirt roads, mile after mile, which lead into both Big Bend National Park and Big Bend State Park. When I'm in the back country I feel like John Wayne is going appear any minute and ride up and over the rocky draw. Really, there are many spots just as beautiful as Arizona which is one of my favorite states.

Just don't go wandering around out there without enough water and supplies unless you know how to survive in Mother Nature's country. Happy trails.

Click, that area near the river seems to be settled by escape artists. I have already figured out Marfa is lefty territory. Sul Ross University might bring a few in as well. Out of town, I find a different group from appearances. There are plenty of "Come and Take it" when you get out. I'm not certain Alpine has a real grocery store, by city standards. Also, I suspect Lajitas is the first spot this side of hell, when it comes to heat. I was there a year ago yesterday and on the river it was hot. I'm sure my mental space is off. I think the next county over is Culbertson, which is also closer to El Paso. The oil boom is hot to the north. Not many places to stay. Ranches and oil don't give much to the left.

I'm going to take a few trips before I bite on moving there. It is 520 miles from here. But, I suspect it could be one of the top spots to hide from chaos. For one, not many people can move in, because it isn't conducive to mass construction. Second, I doubt they would tolerate squatters. Third, getting there isn't easy. The highways are good, if you need to go somewhere. There is also wide open spaces to sight in long range guns.
