A Bucket of Hot Diarrhea and the Downfall of American Supremacy

Earlier this month, just one in a roaring wave of mostly unpublicized urban crimes occurred in Los Angeles: a homeless man flung a bucketful of hot diarrhea on an innocent woman near the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Why was he free to do so? Why isn’t someone that deranged either in jail, or in a straitjacket in a rubber room, instead of out on the streets menacing and harming innocents?

Perhaps the better question is, why didn’t this, nor a resurgence of sanitation-related diseases like typhus, typhoid and tuberculosis, happen in Cody, WY, McPherson, KS, Huntsville, AL, Kearney, NE, Lewiston, MT, Kanab, UT, Twin Falls, ID, Tyler, TX, or Clarinda, IA? Why a California big city?

Why were and are housing costs (and therefore homelessness populations) overwhelmingly highest in Democrat-dominant cities? A low-housing-cost lefty city (Detroit) is that way after having been socioeconomically blasted back into a dystopian Stone Age state by decades of corrupt Democrat rule, and still hosts high poverty and high crime, regardless.

Why are six of the seven most unaffordable home-ownership cities located in California? Why are homeless populations skyrocketing in Democrat-controlled San Francisco, nearby Oakland, and not-nearby Los Angeles County?

According to Investopedia, the top ten costliest cities in the U.S. overall are:

1. New York City, New York
2. San Francisco, California
3. Honolulu, Hawaii
4. Boston, Massachusetts
5. Washington, D.C.
6. Oakland, California
7. San Jose, California
8. San Diego, California
9. Los Angeles, California
10. Miami, Florida

Eight of the ten are under Democrat “leadership” (looking up registered party affiliations of mayor and city-council majority). Coincidence? Even more than the presence of cities, their density is a critical correlation to voting patterns: the densest cities vote the bluest, regardless of what state they’re in. Naturally they have the highest housing and other costs.

I have lots more bookmarks and could put up a thousand more hyperlinks to support my statements, but time is short this morning. Instead, research for yourself the socioeconomic policies put in effect over the past couple decades in California in particular, including those related to leniency on crime and illegal immigration, as well as problems with jobs, housing, and (lack of) child-friendly social values, then continue reading.

Thanks to a combination of cultural Marxism and Utopian social policies, supported by the very same “tolerant” rich leftists who have driven housing prices through the roof. They hypocritically demand that taxpayers solve homelessness by sacrificing more of their paychecks, while failing to take tangible personal steps themselves, such as paying directly for homeless housing, or most directly, hosting homeless people in their own residences. Hollywood in particular is the worst at this, with their giant mansions, gated communities, security systems, and other mini “Trump walls” to keep out the undesirables, (and here’s the key!) while demanding others pay for solving poverty and homelessness.

Meanwhile, California’s bigger cities are devolving precipitously into third-world cesspools of rancid physical, mental and moral filth. Churches are trying to help; however, not enough (nor wealthy enough) church membership exists in such increasingly secular, God-denying locales, to cover it all at more than fingers-in-leaky-dam levels.

So the solutions advocated by the political majority invariably involve forcing others (always others, isn’t it?) to pay more and more taxes, to rob money from the people through governmental coercion, then watch much of it disappear into the dank catacombs of administrative bureaucracy, and a fraction go back to the streets, where direct charity could have helped far more efficiently and focally. Of course, irrefutable arithmetic holds that every dollar lost to taxes is a dollar less that can be donated to charity and church. [Perhaps that’s by design.]

All the while homelessness and poverty and decrepitude keep growing alongside taxes. That’s nuts.

Such overt rot, in times of national economic prosperity (with the Dow and S&P-500 at or near all-time highs), is unprecedented in American history (as opposed to, say, truly awful economies like the Great Depression, or Civil War and the pre-Reconstruction South). Diseases previously thought eradicated have reappeared. Hygiene, sanitation and filth along many L.A., Oakland and S.F. streets is worse than the most turbid dregs of unkempt, big-city bus-station restrooms in decades of yore.

These policies appear misguided, unhinged, deranged, delusional and/or anarchic to most rational, traditional folk of sturdy, Middle American sensibility. Yet, don’t think for a second they aren’t by design. While still often unspoken by its purveyors, the pathological agenda behind this phenomenon is purposeful and straightforward: dependency on the state. That’s it. Make people wards of the state (the poorer and more dependent, the better), and pack them closer together, and you have them under tighter control. “Government will rescue you!”

Meanwhile, the Alinsky-ite lemmings (many of whom are too young to realize that’s exactly what they are, others old enough but not sufficiently well-read) blame it on “income inequality”. This is to justify policies leading to governmental confiscation of wealth and weapons, and erosion of other Constitutional freedoms from those not directly impacted, all under the diabolical guise of false “compassion” or weaponized “empathy”. [Even the sacrilegious ignoramuses known as “Christian left” are guilty and complicit…after all, show me where Jesus commanded us to “love” thy neighbor by means of governmental gunpoint.] Ultimately, through gun confiscation and economic coercion, all other citizens are rendered wards of the state as well.

Leftism tells a great lie: “We want to end poverty”. No, it’s precisely the opposite! The left’s mostly unstated yet obvious goal here is not to eliminate poverty and desperation for solutions to these woes, but to grow them, while crowding people into denser cities. Yes, the left’s objectives are to magnify social disorder and decay, to scales useful and necessary, in order to justify their means to an end. This includes the indoctrination of children into the ideology through collectivism-friendly school curricula—in our case gradual, due to the nation’s sheer size, cultural inertia, and the extreme difficulty of physical revolution, but in other nations’ cases instantaneously, in years and decades following either “democratic” election of collectivist despots (e.g., Venezuela), or overt regime overthrow (e.g., USSR).

Bollocks, you say? Study history. Fundamentally, this is nothing new. Every totalitarian regime of the past 100 years—no exception—became that way by leveraging the very same concepts, adapted mass-manipulatively to the national culture and social apparatuses of the time, ultimately undermining the antecedent governmental structure and imposing tyranny for “the greater good”. Some took decades, others just a few years, depending. That’s how they succeeded in destroying nations.

Are we on that path, as it so strongly appears? Is this undermining of American cultural, military and ideological supremacy, and (if successful) inevitable erosion of our world leadership to a feeble nub at best, the reason nothing quite resembling the U.S. is found readily in the prophecies of Revelation?  Could it be that America as a nation, and force for positive world influence, will have been spayed and neutered from within by that time, perhaps even absorbed into a larger, more hideous entity?  I recently told someone, “I’m starting to wonder”, but that’s literally not true. I’ve been wondering this since my early twenties, and my conversion back out of Godless and leftist thought. I would be so happy to be proved wrong; instead, the evidence is mounting, all around.

What you are seeing merely are baby steps in the larger process, with some of the objectives already becoming crossed off the neo-Marxist checklist to achieve the ultimate goal: total state control of the populace, and the eradication of individual liberty.

It’s really that simple…and that transparent. Yet it is the “woke” who are most deeply comatose to this reality, outside the subset who damn well know what they’re doing, and why.

Image of the Week is Back!

Supercell Sundown on the High Plains“, posted 2019

Image of the Week is back! Thanks to the adroit, expert work of my wife and marvelous web designer Elke, IOTW now is a WordPress site, instead and as before, with one new photo from my portfolio (and accompanying brief narrative) added every week. This post contains a few examples, with links from the captions.

Sailing Schooners off Key West“, posted 2009

Every week for ten years, IOTW has brought you the best of my three-plus decade photographic portfolio: images revealing the majesty and beauty of our outdoors, or splendor of architecture, or evocative wonder of the abandoned structure, or fascinating eccentricities of both the natural and built world all around us. It’s a medium through which to share beauty I’ve found, simple as that.

Convergence at Coffee Creek“, posted 2016

When I first started this photo-blog, at Elke’s persuasion, I didn’t know if I could come up with enough to fulfill a weekly “obligation” (more like labor of love) for years on end. Little did I know that, between the amazing things I had seen and shot before 2009, and everything since, the harder part is to leave something out!

Cracks on the Cauldron“, posted 2018

From slides of the ’80s to high-res digitals of today, still photography is my long-chosen favorite medium through which to convey God’s inspiration in the sky, and all other kinds of interesting images from travels hither and yon. Whether the mood evoked is wonderment, peace, curiosity, befuddlement, awe, or even dangerous menace (see below), the aim is always to inspire a mood and enlighten the reader at the same time.

Massive Tornado near Piedmont, Oklahoma“, posted 2011

Back in late April, the old site (using great photo-BLOG software called PixelPost that had gone extinct, and which didn’t support newer versions of PHP) went dead. We were able to resurrect it temporarily and keep it on life support for a couple months by having the server manager revert PHP for its place on the machine, but on deadline. Time was short to figure out a new medium.

Red Bird in a Redbud“, posted 2010

Elke somehow found a PixelPost to WordPress converter that imported and properly dated all the old stories, categories and images. All it lost were tags (which I’ll reassign for previous years’ images, gradually over time). What this means is that Image of the Week goes back through its entire decade again, with every weekly entry still there. This was very fortunate!

Cold Wash Cycle“, posted 2014

IOTW has been up and running again, but in WordPress, since sometime near the end of July. I had made PixelPost entries in the meantime for continuity, and copied them over to the new site as it was being built and internally beta-tested. Now that it has been up and stable for a couple months, I can securely announce it. [I have been posting links to individual entries on social media.]

Snow Geese in the Rain“, posted 2017

I hope you’ll visit the new IOTW and walk back in time through the latest and greatest photographic experiences, and the stories and imagery of years of yore, then check back weekly for more and more.

Scattershooting 191022

Scattershooting while wondering what happened to sanity and common sense…

“PHOTOGRAPHY” GAME FARMS: “Photography game farms” are unethical and dishonest. I refuse to participate in staged “wildlife” shots, and those who are (without complete disclosure) are being dishonest, greedy, and unethical. A nasty pox with a thousand chiggers on any photographer who sells images of these captive wild animals, without full and open disclosure of the circumstances.

FASCINATING INSIGHTS on SOCIOPATHS: This article, about a self-professed and supposedly professionally diagnosed case, offers a fascinating peek into the mentality of a sociopathic woman. In the spirit of her own mentality, I might have to read the book at a library, bookstore, borrowed, or other medium where I won’t have to pay.

SUCKERS for POP-CULTURAL OCCULT: Going through my “Groupon” offers, the above shows up. Here it is 2019, and enough gullible suckers (over a thousand bought!) clearly still exist to fulfill a consumer demand for pop-occult rubbish. In the ’70s it was mail-order psychic readings…in the ’80s and ’90s, 1-900 scams and Miss Cleo on TV, in the 2000s, interactive websites…and all the while, in-person shops for palm readings, tarot, crystal energy, and other such rectally manufactured hocus-pocus crapola. Today…Groupons. I suppose people really enjoy being ripped off while duped into feeling good about it. If Groupon is right, Miss Francine has raked in over $69,000 gross just from this ad alone. Talk about voodoo economics!

BIG CORPORATE MEDIA DETACHMENT from REAL AMERICA:
ABC corporate HQ: Upper West Side of Manhattan.
NBC corporate HQ: GE Building, Rockefeller Center, NYC
CBS corporate HQ: Midtown Manhattan.
CNN HQ: Atlanta (not coastal, but close).
Microsoft (MS in MSNBC): Seattle
Gannett (USA Today, et al.): McLean VA
NY Times: NYC
LA Times: Los Angeles
Knowing this, is it any wonder that the sheltered, insular, professionally incestuous and mutually sycophantic “journalists” of leftist coastal media are so woefully clueless about what matters to real, everyday, working Americans in our towns and on our land? We conservative folk in Middle America apparently are just backward, ill-educated, tobacco-chewing, rodeo-riding, meth-sucking, toothless rednecks in need of shame, ostracism and ridicule. O how the “woke” are so comatose in their blissful ignorance…

MANIFEST EVIL of TRANSGENDERISM:
Transgenderism is nothing short of diabolical, satanic wickedness. You bet I said it, and I absolutely mean it. This deranged practice is being forced upon a small Texas boy by his so-called doctor “mother” who, given her zealous pursuit of legal permission to inflict permanent psychological and physical abuse on her child, probably is possessed by demons. What else can explain such hideous and delusional sadism toward a child? Devout Catholic Matt Walsh, in his two otherwise solid essays on this topic (first, second) doesn’t go there, but I will. The father’s ex is dripping with evil, and the child is at grave mental, physical, and spiritual risk. I would not blame the dad one bit if he took that kid on an overnight flight to a country that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the U.S. The extremist whack jobs supporting this lunacy have lost sight of one crucial thing: he (yes, he) is a minor child, with immature & undeveloped mind (not to mention brainwashed by that horrendous excuse for a “mom”). Precisely because of that incomplete mental development, he is thoroughly incompetent to make such decisions. Yet a jury has ruled, with sociopathic frigidity only possible through unadulterated devilry, that this innocent little child can be deliberately, deeply abused and scarred for life by being forced into transgenderism. Horrid!

MUTUALLY TRUE STATEMENTS about TRUMP and LEFTISM:
Donald Trump is a bombastic, insufferable, degenerate, unrepentant adulterer and liar, a hideously immoral heathen who, regardless of some positive accomplishments (such as boosting conservative federal judiciary and standing up somewhat to Red China) has soiled the office of the Presidency through his prideful ignorance and repugnantly undignified behavior, damaged Christianity via sellout pastors who have pandered his favor, and set back the cause of conservatism for years to come, simply by association. Leftism is a festering, maggot-ridden, gangrenous ideological rot on the faces of governance and social order, and a “divide and conquer” tool of the evil enemy that will consume this nation’s youth and future in its deviously delusional stench, if unchecked by the forces of sanity. Both statements can be true. Both are. And both truths are why it’s not hard to see the end times approaching. The good news? We who follow the Lord know who wins in the end. Keep the faith.
