America Swings ‘Like a Pendulum Do’ (With Apologies to Roger Miller)

January 15, 2021

If you were around in the 60s you might remember the hit song by country singer Roger Miller of “King of the Road” fame called “England Swings Like A Pendulum Do.” I’d say the US is swinging and has been swinging more like a pendulum than England could hope to do, but to me it has reached epic proportions of swinging since 9-11 (the previous ‘Great Reset’). Here is how….considering all the censorship going on these days on social media and other platforms. Cancel culture and shaming and censorship is happening mostly on those supposedly on the right, so it appears these days, Trump supporters or not. And why in the blue blazes did the alt-right Facebook alternative, Parler, use Amazon Web Services for their platform knowing Amazon was likely to throw Parler under a bus because Amazon only accepts “the narrative”? It was as if Parler was setting up its users for failure–and it has, since Amazon took it down after the so-called “insurrection” on January 6 at the Capitol Building. Will the same thing happen to Gab, the alt-right Twitter alternative?

Folks, if you are providing a free speech alternative at least have the smarts NOT to use “services” from oligarch platforms that believe they are gods and have the right to control Earth! And if you do–for instance I have a Facebook page–I ONLY use Facebook to message friends and relatives, read posts by community neighbors and the local non-denominational church I attend, and post updates relating to my novel series, The Prodigal Band Trilogy. I do NOT use Facebook to espouse politics and Trumpian “populist” narratives. Facebook is owned by Google, right? So why would I post stuff that Google could use to screw me over just because I don’t buy into the narrative? The problem with social media is this: folks just assume whatever they post will have no consequences at this time, so go ahead and post whatever, because Big Tech would never censor someone posting a pix of themselves wearing Viking horns at the ‘storming’ of the Capitol, right?

Oh wait….the “Viking” dude was arrested…. Hmmmm….. Or was he released on 100K bail…or was that some other idiot who just happened to have influential parents? Hmmmmm…. All these ‘insurrectionists’ seem to look alike…other than the supposedly black dude who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt… And then there’s another black dude exposing himself as….an FBI Agent? Or was that someone else?

So now everyone on the right is excoriating the left for censorship, and rightfully so. But here’s what most if not all on the right seem to miss while they denounce the left…well, okay, the neo-left, the new left that calls working class folks “deplorables” (especially white working class…they’d never come right out an shame black or Hispanic working class because that doesn’t ‘fit the narrative’)….well, okay, the new left lead by psychos like Rachel MadCow drumming up war with Iran or wherever about 20 years after she excoriated Bush’s War in Iraq on Air America Radio…after all, making millions a year at MSNBC can easily turn someone with a conscience into a psychopath, isn’t that right Rachel ol’ Cow? And then when a Disaster Medical Assistance Team went to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria she denounced them because some DMATers were getting their nails spa’d or something….MadCow couldn’t try to save a hurricane victim’s life even if paid millions to do so! All she knows how to do is hate those who ‘go against the narrative’! (And can she look at herself in the mirror? Does she even have a mirror? Bwahahahahahahahahahah…)

Sorry about that tangent rant…

But what those on the right forgot was that back in 2001 and 2002 and 2003 and 2004 after 9-11, the neo-cons–the right, that is–couldn’t wait to slaughter innocent Muslims just because, couldn’t wait to blame the latest drought on Muslims or al Qaida or “supporters of Islamic terrorism” such as anti-war people (Remember when you were that way, MadCow?) and such as those seeking 9-11 truth. Remember when anyone who wouldn’t support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were “traitors” to the 9-11 cause and God would ‘curse’ them? Remember when anti-war voices on the internet were censored and YOU RIGHT-WINGERS CHEERED the censorship of left wing anti-war voices? Excoriating Ron Paul? Excoriating Cynthia McKinney? Remember the rants of Andrew Wilcow hating anti-war voices, voices of those who refused to hate Muslims? Remember his ‘I’m right, you’re wrong, and that’s the end of the story’ BS? And YOU went along with it!

So don’t whine and complain that Twitter and Facebook and Google and Amazon and WhatsApp and whatever is censoring you when you cheered on the censorship of anti-war protestors in the 2000s and left wingers who really were left wing (supporting the working class “deplorables” regardless of race, including the Occupy Wall Street protestors in the early 2010s). Folks like the late, great Joe Bageant, who wrote for a site called Dissident Voices and Counterpunch; he was a white left-winger from Appalachia, western Virginia, who always supported the working class, regardless of race. Bageant NEVER would have turned on ‘deplorables’ like MadCow has. And don’t whine and complain about the crapola that the alt-right would never censor left wingers. Or that the right wing would ever trample on the First Article/Amendment to the Bill of Rights/Constitution, because the 2000s proved that the political right is the pendulum swing on the right matching the political left’s pendulum swing on the left. Two sides of the same censorship narrative game.

You neo-con right wingers had your chance to shut up the anti-war pro-working class left wing, and you blew it while loving the idea that ol’ Rachel betrayed her calling for mammon, and now the pendulum is hitting you hard in the head as you let tech oligarchs rule over you and censor you as the neo-left led by communist wannabes BLM and Antifa hunt you down.

Because that pendulum always swings in politics, and because kharma is such a bee-otch!

According to the Mathematics Association of America….2 + 2 = 5?

October 11, 2020

According to this link https://www.zerohedge.com/political/math-association-say-math-inherently-carries-human-biases-citing-critical-race-theory , if you believe 2 + 2 = 4 and ONLY 2+2=4, you are a “white supremacist” or something like that….or something….considering that if you have four people–three blacks or PoCs and one white person….and of course that one white person is a “white supremacist” because all whites are “white supremacists,” right?–then 2 blacks or 2 PoCs added to 1 black person and 1 white person, then 2+2 = 5 since of course that “supremacist” white person is so “supreme” that he or she is 2 people….

Thus, 2+2 = 5.

And wasn’t George Orwell a socialist at one time? Hmmmmmmm…..

So I guess if I was still a HS math teacher, I’d be cancel cultured for believing 2+2 = 4 …

So, here is my opinion of this Mathematical Association of America: you are as “rational” as the square root of two!

Here is another link from RT that makes this notion even more Orwellian…and racist as well! https://www.rt.com/op-ed/503367-thought-crime-mathematics-fear/

Why Orwellian? Because unlike social studies, English constructs and other languages as well that always change (and one of these days will be replaced with Ebonics–for blacks only, doncha know) and history (written by the victors, right?) and even science (which is now as empirical as whatever Gil Bates claims is empirical, eh?), MATH IS TRUTH!

Or at least it used to be….

Obsolete Woman Post Three: Repost from Blogger

September 13, 2020

Why Is This Blog Called “Obsolete Woman”?

First off the name “Obsolete Woman” is based on one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes ever, “Obsolete Man,” starring Burgess Meredith as the “obsolete” librarian in a totalitarian police state where books have been banned and this libraries are obsolete, so that librarians are obsolete. Thus, “the state” as their god decide that the character Wordsworth (appropriate name!) is an obsolete man and thus must die–except he gets to choose how he dies. Isn’t that nice of them!

Here are links to snippets of this episode:

Obsolete Man 5 minute summation beginning to end

Obsolete Man intro and beginning

So a librarian is ‘obsolete’ because libraries are because books are.

Well, I am an author and self-publisher of novels about a rock band that overcomes evil in the music business and elsewhere. So not only would ‘the state’ in the Twilight Zone episode consider me ‘obsolete’ for being an author but also for being a publisher.

And in this world of rap and hip-hop being the kings of the popular music culture, writing about a fictitious rock band also makes me ‘obsolete’! Because rock music is also ‘obsolete.’ (Except it still rules in Europe even now and is likely gaining rule in Asia as well. My daughter’s fave rock band, The GazattE, is Japanese.)

And since rock is ‘obsolete’ while rap and hip-hop rule, is ti because rap and hip-hop is black while rock is white? When you have Hollywood producers claiming only ‘people of color’ will get starring roles in movies and TV shows, it sure looks as if white or European culture is being ‘cancelled.’ Even Hollywood minions admit this! So if white men are ‘obsolete’ in Hollywood, white men are ‘obsolete’ in the popular music business as well. and since rock music is dominate by whites, rock music is ‘obsolete’ as well.

Oh, and I am white….which makes me sorta obsolete as well. Plus, I live in a rural remote area surrounded by nature. So that when Agenda 2030 comes into place in this (less than 100 miles from the Mexican border) “Constitution-free Zone” drummed up by Bill Clinton in the latter 90s, I guess they (“the god known as the state”) will force us all off our properties (without compensation of course….if the black supremacists running South Africa can do it….) into “stack ‘n packs’ or FEMA Camps, whatever….or they will just hand Texas back to Mexico. After all, Oklahoma was just handed back to the Creek, Cherokee, and three other Native American tribes…well, half of it was anyway.

And what else makes me ‘obsolete’? My belief on Jesus Christ. The Noahiders will make sure I really do become ‘obsolete’! If you don’t know what Noahide is, go to the Talmudic Jewry site of the Chabad Lubavitch and check it out…and in the meantime, check out Tractate Gitten 57a within the Talmud and what it says about Christ “burning in Hell in his own hot excrement for eternity.” Or words to that effect.

Finally, I will not bend down in front of BLM and kiss their feet and apologize for something I never had any part in (slavery of African-Americans) while also being a Scots-Irish descendant of indentured servants.Read Kurt Nimmo’s explanation about Scots and Irish indentured servitude here.
And if that’s not enough to convince you that there is no excuse for whites paying reparations to blacks, this video explains it all. The name of the video is “White Trash.”

Which is exactly what BLM thinks of all whites (who don’t bow down to them, that is.)

Oh, and calling myself  “obsolete” is just a way for me to say I am not going along with the planned “new normal” “cancel culture” “blame whitey for everything” nonsense! Or the mask-to-chip-to-AI-losing my humanity Gill Bates crapola either!

Choose freedom over slavery! Choose Good over evil! Choose whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Straight outta the Book of Joshua (24:15). Look it up. (KJV, copyright-free version).

Hiatus Again…Internet Extremely Slow Here in Rural Remote…Where ‘The Narrative’ Doesn’t Apply

September 5, 2020

Hopefully the new ‘hiatus’ I am taking for a week or two or three (and family members are coming back out here again) will not last too long. Plus what with the hot temperatures, no rain, lots of wind and an internet provider that is constantly having to fix things and birds nesting on wi-fi towers and the rest of the story…out internet is almost dial-up speed these days! Very very slow. Heck it took almost five minutes to download this “post” page!

I have removed the “Obsolete Woman’ blog posts from Blogger and will post them all here (all five of them). That blog had very few views and no followers so since I have issues with Blogger and Google anyway, I’m no longer posting to that blog. Just found out Google is censoring some Christian blogs, so why use their Blogger?

Now onto ‘The Narrative,’ again. Maybe having slow internet is a good thing because it will sort of remind me that maybe I am too hooked on it and need to ‘hiatus’ about it if you know what I mean. I spend several hours a day reading news sites I trust (for the most part) and also watching videos–and the buffering on BitChute is maddening! (BitChute? What with YouTube censoring and banning truthful alt-media channels…)

So I can only watch some parts of BitChute videos unless they are very short. They’ll play for a minute or 30 seconds or less even and then buffer. Like I said, it’s as if we were on dial-up! So I can only take so much BitChute. Even YouTub buffers, but at least they don’t buffer as long and one can skip ahead to the key message of the video. I cannot figure out how to do that with BitChute.

And the other thing is I would rather read articles than watch videos…for one thing, I am a writer, and for another thing, I can copy and paste written words into a notepad doc and the links to the posts and reference them here or in comments on other sites. I can’t do that with videos (CASE Act and all that, without video maker permission or attribution.)

On to the message….

All over the news with ‘the narrative’ ruling the roost one sees nothing but Antifa-BLM riots and lootings and folks on either side getting shot or beat up and cops being abusive or complete cowards and holier-than-thou politicians on both sides ‘rules for thee but not for me’ hypocrites spouting their BS while they care not a fig for blacks or whites or whoever who just happen to pay their salaries just because…Soros or Adelson or Koch Brothers or Gil Bates or whoever their owner is will ‘cancel’ them if you know what I mean if they ‘get outta line.’

Gee I wrote about that sort of thing–only regarding the music industry and fictional rock stars and the like–in my trilogy novels at https://omegabooksnet.com . And as I said in a previous post many folks refuse to speak out against ‘cancel culture’ because they are afraid to lose their jobs. But at some point they will have to do the right thing.

But reality, IMHO, is a lot different than ‘the narrative.’ Take all the cities all these riots and whatnot are happening within–even Kenosah, Wisconsin, is fairly large, about the size of the Permian Basin centers of the West Texas oil industry, Midland-Odessa that each has about 100,000 people. I figure the ‘narrative’ applies to maybe 20 million folks in a nation of 350 million folks more or less. And how many among those 20 million actually have to deal with these riots and lootings day in and day out? Maybe five million. Which is only a little over ONE PERCENT of the population of the US. Take into account there are likely OVER 5 MILLION Americans living in rural areas alone (supposedly, the populations of rural American account for TWO PERCENT of the US population. Two percent is SEVEN MILLION folks! And whenever Antifa-BLM tries to intimidate small town-rural America they get their a$$es handed to them! Think Sturgis here! (Honestly I am surprised these idiots actually thought they could do their things surrounded by 250,000 bikers!)

What I am saying is this–this fear-mongering ‘narrative’ that the MSM and even the alt-media is pushing for click-bait or whatever is just fear mongering, as it is affecting only about one percent of the population. Of course, many on the outskirts of this rioting crapola still need to pay attention and not fall for the guilt-trip they might be encouraged to adopt. And what with working from home on ZOOM or whatever, folks can leave the cities and ought to begin looking in rural areas for ‘refuges’ so to speak…just leave the ‘white fragility’ crapola where you came from, okay? One cannot be ‘fragile’ while dealing with rattlesnakes, mountain lions, feral 600 pound hogs and garden-invading javelinas (aka peccaries), bears….you get the idea?

The coming ‘mandatory’ Gil Bates chip DNA-RNA-altering vaccines that are being ‘warp speeded’ into November? Now that is something one might get concerned about! Mark of the Beast or not!

During this ‘hiatus’ the five Obsolete Woman posts will be posted here.

Cancel Culture is Nothing New…It Happened Back in the 80s!

July 17, 2020

I just got finished reading an article on “RealClearPolitics” (linked to here at IWB) from a law professor at Cornell U where he claims that students, faculty and others want him fired from his job because he criticized Black Lives Matter.

He claims, rightly, that most students are opposed to this cancel culture but are ‘silent’ about opposing it, and faculty that he’s known or are friends with are siding with BLM out of fear of losing their jobs themselves.

Kinda reminds me of the old Soviet Union, eh? I guess some have experienced communism…or one could call it fascism, isn’t that right Antifa?…before others will. But I suspect some never will because we won’t put up with it.

So why did Soviet and Chinese and North Korean and…and…you name it, people put up with Communism? Because they didn’t have the balls to oppose it!

I will not accept Communism or Socialism…for one thing, I witnessed it first hand. Back in the early 70s I hung out with a group called the American Communist Workers Movement (Marxist-Leninist) (ACWM-ML). Read about this group here. They disbanded after an infiltrated “Communist Conference” in Pontiac, Michigan, in 1973 that I attended for one day, learned it was infiltrated by the FBI using a phony Tampa communist group, and returned to my hospital EKG-technician job and left that group. Basically compared to BLM and Antifa, ACWM was pretty much a joke. But things have been ramped up quite a bit since. Out of ACWM and others the present day Antifa and other communist groups have grown.

And I have proof that individuals and regions and groups of people whom are potential victims of communism have resisted communism from the get-go. Ever hear of Albania?

In the late 1940s Albania’s Communist Party, soon to be called “The Party of Labor” headed by Enver Hoxha (pronounced “Ho-jah), took over the country after partisans kicked the Germans out of the country. If one knows anything about Albania one knows this. But if one studies Albanian’s history and culture, one can realize many Albanians not only didn’t buy into Communism, but actively resisted it throughout Hoxha’s rule and after.

In my days as a so-called “communist” (I really wasn’t…I was just wanting find out what communism was about, so I hung out with this group) I read a book about Albania’s history going back to the Ottoman days called “The History of the Party of Labor of Albania” (a compilation with no actual author). According to the book, the northern mountain regions inhabited by what are called “Ghegs” (northerners) never fully accepted Hoxha and his ilk, were never completely collectivized and communized. Try as Hoxha might, the Party of Labor never completely took over the mountain areas, meaning they never took over all of Albania! (One could say the same thing happened with the Soviet Union….the most eastern regions around the city of Vladavastok were never fully communized and had a lot more freedom, but I cannot verify that.)

Another book, a novel written by Albania’s foremost author, Ishmael Kadare, called “The Wedding,” verifies that communism never fully took over Albania. How and why did this happen? The Code of Lek, which is the marker of Albanian culture. “Lek” was supposedly the hero in the so-called 1300’s Battle of Kosovo against Serbia, and Lek wrote this Code for Albanians to live by so that Serbia would never want to attack it again. I am not expert in this Code, but one very important part of it is this: blood feud. If a neighbor steals or attacks one’s family or property, that family can get revenge on the neighbor, and the neighbor must respond, or else–the neighbor is shunned, and the like…by residents of that area. In “The Wedding,” the main female character who works at a bauxite mine (bauxite is one of Albania’s main exports) about to marry a low-lander (the term they use I think is “Tosk”) has a father who would not exact revenge on a robbing neighbor as ordered by the Code of Lek. So the father is shunned in a very insulting way–when he goes to a coffee shop he is served his cup of coffee under the knee of the waiter–that is, it looks as if the waiter is ‘pissing’ on the coffee! And this nonsense will continue to happen until the father gets his revenge.

So, imagine what would happen if some Party of Labor officials went to some Gheg town were the Code was enforced, forced someone to ‘communize’, and then vengeance was exacted against these officials? Hoxha must have known that he could never completely communize the mountainous regions of Albania, so he didn’t. Nor did his successors, and, in 1992, Albania liberated itself from Communism.

So that is one example of how and why Communism does not have to be accepted and enforced–unless one lives in fear that one thinks it must be accepted just because Soros and Co. are funding it and certain leftist politicians are trying to implement it because they benefit from it (think Minnesota former Congressman now Attorney General Keith Ellison here…and, oh yeah, he’s Muslim like Ilhan Omar is. And that shame to all Palestinians, Rashida Tlaib, who back-tracked on AIPAC…I guess she wants to continue to be in Congress from Michigan….)

Thus, communities and groups must resist Antifa/BLM/communists for real and not live in fear over it.

Back to cancel culture, which I actually witnessed back in 1980 at what was then THE politically correct university, “minority majority” and maybe the first (non-all-black) university to be minority-majority–SUNY Old Westbury.

It started out as an “experimental” college in the late 60s and became accredited in the early 70s. I went to the college (open admissions) and majored in psychology in 1979 after graduating from community college with an AS degree. (I tried to get into Physical Therapy school, but couldn’t). In the fall semester of 1980, two cancel culture events happened.

One of my psychology profs, a woman named Gerri Schwartz who tended to be more politically conservative and taught classes mostly in the genre of Behaviorism and Skinnerian-type psychology–but was a good prof nevertheless and taught statistics as well…and of course was Jewish–was fired because one student I knew in particular hated Schwartz because supposedly Schwartz would criticize some of this student’s comments or answers (this student was a Sociology major and was a black female…I know her name but no point in mentioning it here, but if she’s still alive I guarantee it she’s an SJW…one of the first ever, likely). I and several other students went to the head of the Psych Dept. to beg him not to have her fired, to no effect. She was replaced by a black male prof…a good one, but I never had any of his classes.

Then later an administrator, an assistant Dean, was threatened with being fired after ‘pissing off’ a whole lot of minority students (the man was white and had an Irish surname that I will not mention). In fact it got so crazy many students protested to get him fired and shouted this slogan: “(Name), you liar! We’ll set your pants on fire!” The protests happened in front of the administrative offices above the college dorm cafeteria. Some students I knew took part in the demonstrations but I did not…I saw no point and really didn’t understand what the man had done that caused that event to happen.

So, in 1980 (I graduated in 1981), a college prof and a college administrator got ‘cancel cultured’ likely just because they weren’t ‘politically correct’ enough.
