Welcome to the Weekend Links for May 08-09, 2021!
We are very happy to have everyone here, and hope everyone had a really good week.
So Bill Gates is getting divorced. But then Bill Gates has been weird a long time, and has gone from strange geek odd to gates of hell evil. Who knows?
There is a bunch on this stuff coming out – https://pagesix.com/2021/05/05/translator-denies-splitting-up-bill-and-melinda-gates/ – so for my money, he is using the Bezos play to safeguard his wealth. The translator is believed to be CCP, but ymmv.
Anywho… watch this you muppets! Its hilarious. Bruz’s lawyer (not just bruz) got a new arsehole ripped out. Funny as… he talks about Bruz’s small …
So he’s a lefty. Sue me.
Politics And Governance
Bahahaha…. Cisgender Intersectional Agency recruitment ad. We have confirmation that the intelligence services are completely compromised by Progressive cultists.
Happily, given they are our enemies, this is a win.
In other news:
- We start with RT. Why? Because the premise of this article is that the world has moved from a globalizing phase to a locked borders phase – https://www.rt.com/op-ed/522863-era-isolationism-borders-covid/ – well worth reading. Not sure about the reasoning, but the portents of a ‘travel is harder’ world are all over the place. Does anyone really think Chinese/Indian students are coming back? I don’t and for my money, this period of globalization is done. America looking inwards – https://amgreatness.com/2021/05/03/oligarchy-and-remedies/ – and turning into an oligarchy is one outcome of this bigger process I feel.
- The only reason the MSM still lives is – https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/silicon-valley-algorithm-manipulation-only-thing-keeping-mainstream-media-alive – algo driven manipulation. Yeah, this is true but the hard part is knowing exactly how much of their support is bots and paid click farms, vs real people. I suspect number of real people is very very few.
- YMMV, but I thought this one brought out some interesting points – https://amgreatness.com/2021/04/24/slow-motion-suicide-of-the-west/ – so obviously there are biases here, but its a viewpoint that I think maybe important.
Perspectives On Health
If you’re in Sydney, mask are back!
- An old perspective – https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/05/aldous_huxley_foresaw_our_despots__fauci_gates_and_their_vaccine_crusaders.html – which may explain much. Huxleys letter to Orwell – they knew each other quite well apparently.
- It is unlikely that governments will let go of the pandemic – https://spectator.org/covid-masks-left/ – this article blames the leftist control freaks for this behavior, but I personally doubt its just the left.
- Its no longer Fascism, its now – https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/05/how-republicans-and-conservatives-have-failed-jack-kerwick/ – Faucism.
Just to be clear.
There is (probably) some kind of highly infectious flu going around. Which (probably) was being experimented on in Wuhan (gain of function research) funded by the US – Fauci himself. Which someone let out/lost control off. But there is also a pretty strong agenda to use this crisis as part of a power grab. Politics and everything.
But, I also have a great deal of respect for the ordinary folks (healthcare) trying to get their heads around it to keep us all safe. And the poor schmucks who are having their livelihoods destroyed by this.
Let’s see how it all plays out.
Here at weekend links, we often take aim at the stupidity known as Feminism. Because its stupid. And many women fall for it hook, line and sinker. But not all.
I’ve seen women with enormous courage take on the system. These ladies clearly have larger (metaphorically speaking) cahones than the vast vast majority of men out there.
And lets be clear, if mens actions are heavily policed by society (men get harsher prison sentences almost always), womens speech is far more heavily policed by society, and punished by a loss of status in the female social matrix far far worse than ever happens to a man. A man may get punched in the face, but women may face far worse – there are worse fates than death after all.
A single man cannot be equal to any single women, or vice versa – not least because any person is unlikely to be equal to who they were the previous day, or will be the next day.
However, men and women do have equivalent roles to play in (a sane / functioning) society. This is what I think anyways.
So this weekend, lets give them some props.
So maybe you agree with Sydney Watson. Maybe not. But she has courage and is fighting the good fight.
And Brittany Sellner…
Both Suzanne Venker and Bettina Arndt have been attacked repeatedly for
their views expressing their views. Remember, womens speech is policed like mens actions are, so the below takes legit personal courage.
Right one more…
Case in point, who did it take to kick start ezfka? Yeah. Credit where its due.
Also, a personal hero – https://www.brainpickings.org/2017/02/07/hannah-arendt-the-banality-of-evil/ – Hannah Arendt lost family in the holocaust, but still had the cahones to criticize Ben Gurion’s usage of fear to win political elections in the early years of Israel.
To call out Israels founding father in the 50’s for politicizing (weaponizing) holocaust deaths to win election campaigns. Yeah… planet sized cahones.
Culture Is Breaking Bad
I like ADVChina and SerpentZA. Its such an honor to be alive when so many ordinary people worldwide are choosing to stand up and pay the price to stop the totalitarian criminals running China. God bless them.
How did your civilization end? Slowly, and then really fast.
- Well worth a read – https://accordingtohoyt.com/2021/03/08/i-dont-want-to-write-this-post/ – sobering is all I can say.
- Yep – https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/03/barack_obama_has_now_been_president_longer_than_fdr.html – piece of shit.
- Wtf – https://www.city-journal.org/calif-ethnic-studies-curriculum-accuses-christianity-of-theocide – strange.
Culture Wars – Funny edition…
Now, we mock male feminists. Because they are the lowest of the low. The only question for a male feminist is, have you been caught with a dead hooker in the trunk, yet?
A CCP mouthpiece decided to juxtaposition India’s burning pyre images with China’s space launch. Chinese Weibo users reacted so strongly that said CCP mouthpiece deleted the tweet, and are now ignoring its existence. This is the kind of thing that starts blood feuds.
And god bless Palki Sharma-Upadhyay. Anywho…
- Lol – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/philippines-top-diplomat-tells-china-get-fck-out-their-territory – Chinese PR going well again.
- This is not good – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/top-swiss-diplomat-tehran-dies-mysterious-fall-high-rise – because when diplomats start dying, armies start prepping. Russian fake news – https://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index3559.htm – says, “… Swiss diplomat Sylvie Brunner, who as the deputy head of the foreign interests section at the Swiss embassy in Iran represented the interests of United States, as the US and Iran have no formal diplomatic relations—which is why FINMA investigators ordered her to return to Switzerland so she could testify about her knowledge …” Yeah
- More shenanigans – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2021/04/29/biden-anti-eurasian-green-delusion-and-america-race-irrelevance/ – in the energy space.
The point is the government made it illegal, and then the department tried to cover up its cock up. While there should be fines for attempting to evade quarantine by clipping past loop holes, this one seems to have been bungled good and proper.
- Lol – https://www.theguardian.com/business/grogonomics/2021/may/04/after-the-sharp-recession-there-is-little-sense-of-a-booming-recovery – what can you say.
- This seems dodgy – https://www.afr.com/property/residential/cheaper-to-buy-than-rent-for-six-in-10-suburbs-20210429-p57nk9 – does anyone know if this is true?
- Tarric Brooker, using the Data Wizards services – https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/australian-economy/the-hidden-factor-experts-say-proves-the-aussie-property-boom-is-a-lie/news-story/7a1bd3f05bbd7b74c8999da42dd0c05a – really interesting stuff!
Obligatory Cat Video!
Animals give me a lot of happiness, and yeah…
- Cat discovers itself in a mirror. A lot funnier than you might guess.
- Baby bunnies squeak when pet.
- Guy saves a drowning koala.
- Couple saves a koala who’s almost inert after surviving a wildfire.
- Cat talking in its sleep.
- Dog gets sprung from a high-kill shelter and goes crazy in happiness.
Makes me smile 🙂 and have a good weekend!
