Yet Another Reason

…why we should never allow a society where only the cops have guns:

Kim Jong Un’s new secret squads will execute anyone viewing pornography under the North Korean dictator’s efforts to clamp down on ‘foreign influences’.
Enforcers are working to stamp out foreign television, hair cuts and even birthday parties, according to testimony from a defector included in a new report.
The squads, known as ‘gruppa’ or ‘non-socialist groups’, are tasked by Pyongyang to pursue violations of the Communist Party’s official ideology.

And as for that Surveillance Society thing:

‘The groups operate as a hidden tool, which is used by the government to achieve their ultimate objectives of ubiquitous surveillance and the ability to thoroughly oversee each and every resident,’ the report says.

If they can execute you just for a triviality like watching Wanda Whips Wall Street, they can kill you for having dirty fingernails.  Or using the “wrong” pronouns.

The State is never your friend.

And here’s one for the gruppa, just because I can:

When Totalitarians Gather

From the gathering of bastards at Davos, the latest little bit of mischief comes from Oily Little Shit Tony Blair:

“I think there is a huge impetus for a national digital infrastructure, digitisation in healthcare is one of the great game changers, we should be helping countries develop a national digital infrastructure, which they will need with these new vaccines.”

Impetus among statist motherfuckers like Blair, that is.  And from his replacement Commie Bastard in Britishland:

The leader of the opposition Labour Party and the odds-on favourite to become the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, Sir Keir Starmer, said that he prefers Davos over Westminster.
“It’s closed and we are not having meaning… once you get out of Westminster, whether it’s Davos or anywhere else, you actually engage with people that you can see working with in the future. Westminster is just a tribal, shouting place.”

Of course, it’s far easier to enact oppression when there’s no “shouted opposition” — just ask Adolf Hitler, whose favorite political tool was the Enabling Act of 1933.

And you think that the WEF attendees aren’t just drooling for similar legislation in their own countries, you’re deluding yourself.

Why are these fascist bastards still alive?  Asking for a friend.


Looks like the Socialists are starting the process of ditching Biden, via the whole “illegal classified documents route” (as opposed to just handing it over to the Clintons for an accident / suicide):

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union that President Joe Biden bore “ultimate responsibility” for the classified material found at his home and office.
“Let’s be honest about it — when that information is found. It diminishes the stature of any person in possession of them. It’s not supposed to happen. Whether it was the fault of a staffer or an attorney, it makes no difference. The elected official bears ultimate responsibility.”

Yeah;  slime him, have his disciples quit on him, leave him isolated, start the process of anointing his successor (TBD, but most likely a sitting Democrat Governor).

Textbook political assassination.

Quote Of The Day

From the always-wrong Paul Erlich:

“I and the vast majority of my colleagues think we’ve had it; that the next few decades will be the end of the kind of civilization we’re used to.”

On this occasion, he’s actually correct — but only if we let the Commies (WEF, Democrats, George Soros etc.) run things.

As for all his quasi-scientific collectivist (“vast majority”) statements and apocalyptic warnings, they’re

…as always.

Tracking & Stalking

Well, now:

Reno, Nevada, Mayor Hillary Schieve, an independent, sued a private investigator after discovering a GPS tracking device on her vehicle.

The lawsuit, filed last week, alleges that the investigator trespassed onto her property to install the device without the mayor’s consent. She claims she was unaware it was attached to her vehicle until it was discovered by a mechanic.

The lawsuit named David McNeely as the private investigator and 5 Alpha Industries as the company involved. McNeely reportedly worked on behalf of an unnamed third party.

I can’t wait for the “unnamed third party” to become public knowledge.  I’m willing to accept the proposition that if it was Democrats, we’ll never be told.  Still:

“I am publicly announcing this now, and did not make any public statements at the time when it was discovered, to make clear that this is about one thing, and one thing only: it is not ok to stalk people.  This is about standing up to the rampant harassment of our civil servants and community leaders, and saying, this is NOT ok.”

No, it isn’t, Madame Mayor.  Now tell that to all the fucking government alphabet agencies, who spy on us ordinary folks constantly and think that this is just fine and dandy.

Oh, and one last thing, Madame Mayor:  given that snooping is being done largely by Democrats and the various Swamp bureaucrats they support, do you regret your earlier presidential endorsement?

“Independent”, my ass.

Choices, Choices

Looks as though things are getting interesting:

The attack one week ago on two substations in Moore County, N.C., resulted in the loss of power to 45,000 people and raised questions about the security of America’s power grid.

And when further attacks in North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, and Oregon were revealed, those questions have now become urgent. Are the attacks — all involving gunfire targeting substations — unrelated pranks, or are they connected to a plot of some kind?

As outlandish as the idea of some kind of coordinated attack on our electrical grid being underway sounds, federal authorities are not dismissing anything or any theory at this point. They can’t afford to. The electric infrastructure our country depends on is critical — especially moving into the winter months when so many homes use electric heat.

Here’s what I find interesting.  If we assume that these attacks are not committed by the Random Asshole Set — teenage boys, for example — and I think it’s safe to they’re they’re not, given the geographic locations of each attack, it behooves us to try to figure out who are behind them.  Here are my thoughts.

Radical Muslims.  Our perennial bugbears, they are, although I think it’s unlikely they’re intent on bringing the electrical grid down;  their preferred target is people, not stuff.  Again, nothing is impossible and they might have changed their modus  to punish The Great Satan by ending video gaming, porn movie gazing and Sunday morning Christian broadcasts, but I think it’s a remote chance, at best.

Leftist / Gummint provocateurs [some overlap].  I would believe this if, say, the FBI were announcing that “right-wing hate groups / White supremacists” are “persons of interest” in their investigations.  But I don’t think even the NY Times  will buy that story.  Most persuasively, there are no RWHG / WS groups capable of organizing such widely-dispersed and well-planned acts of sabotage, simply because actual membership of such groups is scattered over thousands of basements across the U.S.A., and I think too many of these people, feeble as they are, would be willing to risk being set up by Fibbie plants in their ranks.  Those birds ain’t gonna fly again soon.

Eco-terrorists.  Yeah, as a next step to gluing yourselves to roads and paintings, this would be a logical exercise for these nutcases.  The part that makes this so credible is that the Radical Greens have a wide, international membership — so you could bring in a group from Germany, the U.K. and all over Europe, give them the plan and the explosives, have them execute the plan and fly them out of the nearest major international airport while the pieces are still falling out of the sky.  The Carolina attacks, for example, took place not far from Charlotte-Douglas, and the Washington- and Portland ones are close-ish to both Portland PDX and SeaTac airports.  Thus there are no local suspects because there are no local perpetrators.

It’s all early days, of course, and no doubt greater minds than mine are considering the same variables;  just none at the FBI, because they’re too busy trying to fit some chumps in the Christian Urban Brotherhood Society — CUBS — in Biloxi MS into the frame.
