WARNING: Snark Level 10/10. Blunt Objectivity 9/10.
Ah, sometimes the INFO-SNIPING is so much better from the trenches, where we have a real shot at the belly of the beast. Or have I just been listening to too much country music and drinking Mountain Dew at 3 AM?
Yeah, I’m being a prick about the stolen election. FOUR YEARS, you cheats. That is how long you will have to put up with me, making the Biden administration’s every move look like Mark Zuckerberg getting reamed by Xi Jinping on top of a burning cop car in the middle of an Antifa-BLM riot during a California brushfire. And then Mike Pence, AOC and Miley Cyrus show up.
Have I gotten y’all in the mood for ANYTHING ELSE – maybe even a little SCIENCE to go with the MIND BLEACH?
Enter my favorite political magazine, Chemical & Engineering News, otherwise known as C&EN, upon which I almost foolishly promised never again to cast my eyes, back when they declared anthropolitical global warming to be “settled science”. Ah, yes – those wonderful bypassers of “show the crowd the data, please”, who declared our most urgent problem, back in our somewhat less collective youths, to be “bad human” global warming.
Yes – you heard the fake science from a science organization which gave the ideas scientifically temporary but geopolitically lasting legitimacy – that grave pronouncement of imminent global misfortune by heat death, oddly at the beginning of a solar mini ice age – and even more oddly at a likely critical point for RE-LAUNCHING of a full ice age. The only real beneficiaries of said mad science – at least on THIS planet – seeming to be Russia (URANIUM) and China (COAL).
I never thought it could get worse.
Did somebody say “worse”?
Hold their white wine and sensimilla smoothie – Team “Get Rid Of Trump” Science is already having an orgasm over the 46D double-wide silicone election.
Governance. Such a wonderful word! And you get it TWO ways with the Biden administration.
State control with Big Science, Big Military, Big Intelligence, and Big Euro-Fabian elite overtones, sometimes having to keep that rising arm down, I refer to it all as the Bidenazis.
Alternatively, and we mean alternatively, you have the hot-headed, designer-encrusted, faux-plebeian radicals through whom China makes sure the US doesn’t generate TOO MUCH theft-worthy research and technology, lest the CCP never get into the passing lane. These, of course, are the Bidenistas.
Now – some will undoubtedly object to my application of the Third Reich metaphor as being [and which I of course regard as illusory and tangential] Holocaust diminution, or even more wrongly as Godwinian nullification of my own message.
Well, as Biden talks about nullifying my favorite bit of Judaica – “every Jew, a .22(3)” – by executive order, looking a bit “old-timey German executive” in the process, let me be blunt in ways that certain people should have been with Madeleine Jacobs about global warming. However it happened, the assigned Jewish monopoly on calling out center-left totalitarian outrage is – in my “well this is a fine mess” opinion – PRECISELY why we now suffer from center-left totalitarian outrage.
Yes. Having ONE GROUP and ONLY ONE GROUP in charge of calling out Euro-Left-Faschy-Soashy-Commie-Jackboot statism – which was not exactly good for a WHOLE LOTTA GROUPS – and then failing to object when that ONE GROUP made it all about THE ONLY ONE GROUP, and not about Euro-Left-Faschy-Soashy-Commie-Jackboot statism itself – is why, in my persistent if somewhat pestilent opinion, we are presently sliding into Euro-Left-Faschy-Soashy-Commie-Jackboot statism.
Allies. They’re USEFUL, damn it! Even at the VICTIM LEVEL.
Asleep at the wheel doesn’t even begin to describe it. The “don’t worry, we’ll create good socialism this time” assigned self-own WORKED, when it was made to look neo-liberal friendly, and roughly orthogonal to the Zionism-antisemitism axis.
It was a brilliant strategy. Give it up, people. You were OWNED. We’ll never be exactly sure by WHOM, but that’s OK. Whatever life is on this planet, eventually, they will find it all rather hilarious.
Now – the Bidenazis play a good game being “responsive” to Bidenista concerns, but it’s largely a scam, in the same way that Reich RINOs (let’s be fair, now!) respond with cuddly and illusory kabuki to populists, non-monopoly free-marketers, true conservatives, libertarians, and others who didn’t get the UNIPARTY message and realize it was an ORDER, not merely a suggestion.
The relative center of American statism – just “absolute left” enough to let technology drive humanity on toward a bald, androgynous, trans-human future – is solid, and it is PURE UNIPARTY. The RINOs just smoke their cigars in the slow lane and warn their children never to listen to any of that gay shit in private school, because grandkids.
Realities. Accept them. It’s easier to see where the FRONT actually is.
SO – where are we now?
Red Jen is an interesting barometer of where things are, as White House Kremlinologists (again, a horribly stretched metaphor, but it works like crazy) try to read the tea leaves (whoops) that explain the smoky, oily, acrid output of the black box that is the Bidenazi-Bidenista two-cycle Trabant engine.
Red Jen’s most notable “give up the strategy” moment seemed to have been about SPACE. See her face above. THAT is what she thought about Space Force.
Let’s break that down a bit.
The Bidenistas don’t think much of spending money on SPACE, because what little spare change we will have in their windowless, concrete, China-indebted future, will be needed by THEM. Think Castro or Chavez with access to all the levers of power in Washington. Can they crash it all but still have exquisite and fashionable feasts for the tippy-top of The Party, like Castro did? Hold their credit-card-maxxed-out organic salad and trendy micro-brew. They can do it. But trust me, there is no future for SPACE FORCE on that tab.
The Bidenazis, however, are in a bit of a quandry on space exploration. Tech may be pricey, but it just appeals to them. It’s a MUST-HAVE. Why, it matters more than life itself. Especially somebody else’s life. There is always some new gadget that will cinch the New World Order.
Red Jen’s subtle mocking of Space Force reflected her ginger-hot levels of Bidenista TDS, but that is just one side of her – the one she normally keeps in check to keep her job at the inter-factional interface. Her walking it all back to a Biden reassurance of full support for the infant military branch, reflected the reality that Bidenazi nominal support for Bidenista social insanity comes at a price – FULL SUPPORT FOR PLAY-TOYS. Red Jen had to virtue signal to that reality, and she almost sounded like an “actually served” Pentagon mom doing it. Impressive.
SO – Space Force is SAFE on 46th base. The natural question is, what do the Bidenistas get in return?
I had been thinking the Bidenistas would get control of NASA, meaning more “Muslim outreach”, giving the farm to Russia in the manner of the last 3 decades (while condemning Putin, of course), and maybe letting China run the place, albeit secretly.
Well, it looks like that dramatically bad future has an actual chance of NOT HAPPENING.
Indeed, thanks to a Kremlin tip from C&EN, it appears that the Bidenazis are driving a VERY hard bargain in defense of space, by getting or allowing Biden to nominate former senator Bill Nelson as head of NASA.
Yes, Nelson is a politician, and a “fren” of Biden, and this is a typical leftist appointment in that respect. Everything is political to the left, and if they can’t find a field expert who is willing to put The Party First, THEY will take care of that little aspect by inserting a politician. However, Nelson is still considered to be one of the most “pro-NASA” politicians of all. Even Trump’s NASA guy, Jim Bridenstine, is in favor of this nomination.
If I had to be cynical – and I do – I would say that it appears that, in exchange for the January 6th heavy lifting to get rid of Trump, the Bidenazis are now in the CATBIRD SEAT on appointments that matter to them.
Exhibit A: A great article, typical of the very high quality “rank and file” work at C&EN. If you want to read the tea leaves, THIS mag is still your magnifying glass, as long as certain corrections are applied to the LEFT LENS.
You will note that this article is pleasing to read, although perhaps a bit dry. Compared to most of what passes for journalism these days, it is extraordinarily professional and investigative, explaining not only why Bill Nelson is popular, and why he will almost certainly be confirmed, but also why I still bother to read this magazine. There is only one short paragraph at the end which carries any political payload at all, rather than EXPLAINING the politics. It is very matter of fact, and appears to be almost an add-on, stating:
“Some have criticized Biden for not nominating a woman to the position. All of NASA’s administrators have been men.”
I mean, that’s pretty much as objective as you can get, most of all because both statements are TRUE.
I was at first inclined to suspect that the author’s overwhelmingly female/feminist Bidenista management at C&EN was responsible for forcing that little one-paragraph addition, but after looking at some other sources, I changed my mind. The author could have said MUCH more about that aspect, but only at some risk of turning his work into an opinion piece.
Well, opinion is what we do here. Allow ME to do the heavy lifting.
If you go to almost any source of POLITICAL news, that particular aspect (“WHY DIDN’T BIDEN NOMINATE A WOMAN, DAMN IT!!!???”) drowns out almost everything else.
The virtue signaling – it BURNS!
EXAMPLE: The Daily Beast
As you can see, this “news” article actually says “BUT HE’S AN OLD WHITE MAN, yada, yada, yada.” You will see much more blatantly, hiply, anti-white racist, anti-male sexist politics in the article.
Rather hilariously, one source admits to Nelson’s competence: “I’m sure Nelson will do a good job,”. Really! Damn, these distracting things which get in the way of social justice!
Our “competitors” can only grin.
I urge you to go to the link and read more.
To deeply understand what is going on here, you have to understand that all the kvetching about appointing women is NOT ultimately the decision of Democrats, or women, or feminists, or diversity mongers.
You can say CCP if you want – I’m fine with that. Just remember – CCP wields a very big stick made almost entirely of Chinese people, and that stick is called CHINA. It has some white and black paper around the baseball bat here in America, but it’s still a baseball ba….. Did I say baseball bat? I meant stick, silly!
China needs to politicize American organizations with C-level puppets who hold America-weakening neo-liberal delusions – which China publicly hates and condemns but secretly loves on US, not THEM. China also needs to WEAKEN those organizations directly by always deflecting their leadership choices from the BEST candidates to others, which is what clunky and ham-fisted diversity policies, or similarly knee-jerk reactions to media diversity-mongering, do.
It’s very clear that Nelson is a strong consensus candidate, admired and respected by Democrats, Republicans, and NASA insiders. He likely knows more about NASA than any politician alive.
A very OBVIOUS choice.
I am willing to go along with the idea that – for whatever reason – Biden picked the “best” candidate, as well as a loyal one, likely upon either Bidenazi urging or Bidenazi approval.
However, it’s VERY obvious that the Bidenistas are NOT happy with this pick. We may have a competent candidate, but we are one step further away from all of us (except The Party, of course) living in windowless concrete bunkers outside elite-only airports, which – to the Bidenistas – would be a much better world.
This, but improved, by removing the windows.
Sadly, we’ll never get there with appointees like Bill Nelson.
Oh, the humanity!
Anyway, watch this appointment. Confirmation seems certain, but China may pull out a win, yet. All they need is to do is make the Bidenistas scream longer and louder.
