The Blast The Dried The Red Sea (Shofar sounds)

2020.10.16 23:17 pregadorchuck The Blast The Dried The Red Sea (Shofar sounds)


https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/38420979980 Inside the shofar the walls remind us of the night that is not like the other nights as our fathers crossed the Red Sea on dry ground.
There are so many layers to any given verse in the Tanakh that it makes my head spin when the Ruwach gives light. Let's examine a couple of in'eresting questions as a people of faith:
  1. Who saved us with His outstretched arms? Ans. YHVH. Yehosha is YHVH, Son of the Father.
  2. Why are the bnei Yisrael (children of Israel) commanded to pick up the shofar and sound it at least twice a month on top of the YHVH feast days (Tehillim 81 1-4)?
This Tehillim command is not given to the gentiles. That in itself is not a valid reason for the gentiles to not open the Tankah though. Cuz apparently millions of gentiles love Daniel 9 and Joel 2. In fact, Paul pointed out to the Gentiles in Galatiym that no one should "judge them" if they do not participate in our feast days and in our activities. Unfortunately, Reformists misunderstand the target of Galatiym was in fact, not to the whole Somati (Body of Christ) but only toward those who do not perform the Brith Mila (Covenant of the circumcision). It is because for us, the bnei, the exit from Mizraihiym (Egypt) in Exodus carries a historical significance to our 12 tribes that is unique to us as the nation of Israel alone.The gentile brethren are welcome to observe with us in joy and respect but it is up to each of them. No one will judge them except the Judaizers and the Hebrew Roots. We don't judge them.
The four promises below from Shemot 6 are incorporated into the four cups of the seder at Pesach, in that order.
  1. Bring us out;
  2. Free us from slavery;
  3. Redeem us with His outstretched arms
  4. Take us as His people. We are YHVH's people. YHVH is our God.

"Therefore, say to the Israelites: `I am YHVH יהוה ,and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians (typology: the sinful world).
I will free you from being slaves to **them (typology: satanas)**and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God."
Indeed our Elohai came in His First Advent and saved the House of Yisrael as promised, with His own arms as son of man outstretched on the cross. Before the Second Advent, He will redeem the rest of YiraeEl.
Also it was prophesied in Isaiah 65,
1
“I let myself be sought by those who did not ask;
I let myself be found by those who did not seek me.
I said, ‘Here I am; here I am!’ to a nation that did not call on my name;
2
I spread out my hands all day to a stubborn people,
those who walk after their thoughts in the way that is not good,
3
the people who provoke[a] me to anger continually to my face;
Explanation
"My face" is Yehosha, He is the face of Adonai:
John 14 9 Y'shua said to Philip, “Am I with you so long a time and you have not known me, Philip? The one who has seen me has seen the Father! How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’
The man that was nailed to the cross held out His outstretched arms to a stubborn nation, Here I AM, Here I AM!
"Hineini" - Yitzhak
The bnei received a chuqqah (statute) to sound the shofar from generation to generation.
In the Torah, Leviticus 23
24 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.

In the Nevi'im, Isaiah 27
And in that day [1] a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
[1] At the Second Coming.
It is because the air blasting out of the horn walls will remind us of the night that our fathers crossed en masse the Red Sea between wall to wall of water on dry ground. Meanwhile the malach back in Egypt executed the firstborn of every household who chose not to obey YHVH.

The East wind (the Ruwach) blasted upon the sea all night of the Tenth Plague to make The Way for the children to cross and leave Egypt behind.
Indeed, Bayam Derekha (Your Way was in the sea, Tehillim 77 19. YHVH gave our fathers The Way in our passage from the world of sinfulness and wickedness to freedom in the Son.
And so we remember the grace of Adonai for saving us as we sound a miniature version of The Way of salvation. That is the ram's horn, righteousness in the Son.
Shemot 14 (A Prefigure Of the Shofar Blast from the lips of Elohai)
YHVH moved the sea[o] with a strong east wind all night, and he made the sea become dry ground, and the waters were divided. 22 And the Israelites[p] entered the middle of the sea on the dry land. The waters were a wall for them on their right and on their left. 23 And the Egyptians gave chase[q] and entered after them—all the horses of Pharaoh, his chariots, and his charioteers—into the middle of the sea.
The redeemed bnei have a special relationship with Elohai (our God).

2020.10.01 20:32 StevenStevens43 The pope v The antipope

The pope v The antipope
Auld firm derby:
In this article i am going to try to pinpoint the roots of the Secterianism divide, best exemplified by the passionate Auld firm derby.
Old firm
The Old Firm is the collective name for the Scottish football clubs Celtic and Rangers, which are both based in Glasgow. The two clubs are by far the most successful and popular in Scotland, and the rivalry between them has become deeply embedded in Scottish culture. It has reflected, and contributed to, political, social, and religious division and sectarianism in Scotland.[3] As a result, the fixture has had an enduring appeal around the world.[4]

Auld firm derby
Secterian divide:
As we can see below, the derby has a long tradition of being more than just a sporting rivalry.
The rivalry also includes national and political divide, as well as religious divide.
Now it is the secterian element i am going to explore in this article.
Rivalry and secterianism
The competition between the two clubs had roots in more than just a simple sporting rivalry.[4] It has as much to do with Northern Ireland as Scotland and this can be seen in the flags, cultural symbols, and emblems of both clubs.[14] It was infused with a series of complex disputes, sometimes centred on religion (Catholic and Protestant), Northern Ireland-related politics (Loyalist and Republican), national identity (British or Irish Scots), and social ideology (Conservatism and Socialism).[15]

Loyalist flags
Protestant reformation:
Some may say this rivalry has it's roots in the Protestant reformation, when protestantism was born.
History
Pope Martin V was elected and was accepted everywhere except in the small and rapidly diminishing area that remained faithful to Benedict XIII. The scandal of the Western Schism created anti-papal sentiment and fed into the Protestant Reformation at the turn of the 16th century

Spread of Protestantism
Saint Peter:
However, to find the most immediate roots, i am going to begin with the thought to be first ever pope, Saint Peter, in 30 AD.
Saint Peter
Saint Peter[a] (r. AD 30;[2] died between AD 64 and 68[3]) also known as Simon Peter, Simeon, Simon (/ˈsaɪmən/ (📷listen)), Cephas, or Peter the Apostle, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, and one of the first leaders of the early Church.
According to Christian tradition, Peter was crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero. He is traditionally counted as the first bishop of Rome‍—‌or pope

Pope Saint Peter
Martyred:
Many scholars do agree that Saint Peter was indeed martyred by Nero, though they dispute his legitimacy to papacy.
But right from the very first claimed pope, we see a division between Roman imperialists and popes.
Scholarly views
Some church historians consider Peter and Paul to have been martyred under the reign of Nero,[124][125][126] around AD 65 after the Great Fire of Rome.[127][128][129] Presently, most Catholic scholars,[130] and many scholars in general,[131] hold the view that Peter was martyred in Rome under Nero.
While accepting that Peter came to Rome and was martyred there, there is no historical evidence that he held episcopal office there.[132][

Pope Telesphorus:
Pope Telesphorus is credited with a whole list of attributions, including the tradition of midnight mass, celebration of Easter on Sundays, seven day lent, and singing of the hymn Gloria.
Biography
The tradition of Christmas Midnight Masses, the celebration of Easter on Sundays, the keeping of a seven-week Lent before Easter and the singing of the Gloria are usually attributed to his pontificate

Gloria
Pope Pius I:
Then we have Pope Pius, said to have built Santa Pudenziana.
But we also see Pope Pius has came in for some competition from competing Christians sects, which he excommunicates.
Pontificate
.[12] He is also said to have built one of the oldest churches in Rome, Santa Pudenziana.
.[11] Pope Pius I is believed to have opposed the Valentinians and Gnostics under Marcion, whom he excommunicated.[14]

Santa Pudenziana
Pope Anicetus:
Next, a controversy begins that would blow out of all proportion, between the see of Rome and other factions, over which day passover should be.
Pope Anicetus also opposed other Christian sects, and passed a law decreeing that Priests must not have long hair, which would pretty much make the Gnostic priests violators
Biography
Polycarp and his Church of Smyrna celebrated the crucifixion on the fourteenth day of Nisan, which coincides with Pesach (or Passover) regardless of which day of the week upon this date fell, while the Roman Church celebrated the Pasch on Sunday—the weekday of Jesus's resurrection. The two did not agree on a common date, but Anicetus conceded to Polycarp and the Church of Smyrna the ability to retain the date to which they were accustomed. The controversy was to grow heated in the following centuries.[5]
Anicetus actively opposed the Gnostics and Marcionism.[6] The Liber Pontificalis records that Anicetus decreed that priests are not allowed to have long hair (perhaps because the Gnostics wore long hair).[4]

Passover
Pope Soter:
Then we have Pope Soter who passed the law that marraige is only valid if blessed by a priest, and also officially inaugurated Easter as an annual festival.
Pope Soter
Pope Soter (Latin: Soterius) was the bishop of Rome from c. 167 to his death in c. 174.[1] According to the Annuario Pontificio, the dates may have ranged from 162–168 to 170–177.[2] He was born in Fondi, Campania, today Lazio region, Italy.[3] Soter is known for declaring that marriage was valid only as a sacrament blessed by a priest and also for formally inaugurating Easter as an annual festival in Rome.[4]

Montanists:
You might also notice from below, that the sects that the Roman church are opposing, all appear to be sects that are connected to Gaul.
Therefore there may appear to be a touch of nationalism about this also.
Probably even cultural and maybe even racial divides too, all culminating in fighting over length of hair.
And the Gallics opposed the Papacy every bit as much as the Papacy opposed the Gallic Christian sects.
Reaction to montanist movement
The Montanist movement, which originated in Asia Minor, made its way to Rome and Gaul in the second half of the 2nd century, during the reign of Eleuterus. Its nature did not diverge so much from the orthodoxy of the time for it to initially be labeled heresy. During the violent persecution at Lyon,
.[9] At Rome, the Gnostics and Marcionites continued to preach against the Catholic Church.

Pope Victor I:
Under pope victor I, teaching Christ is a mere man, became an excommunicatable offence.
Biography
According to an anonymous writer quoted by Eusebius, Victor excommunicated Theodotus of Byzantium for teaching that Christ was a mere man.[6]
Pope zephyrinus:
Now if you have found the article boring up until now, then here is were it maybe begins to get a little more interesting.
Pope Victor I's excommunicating of Theodotus the Tanner led to an activist group of Theodotuses migrating to Rome and setting up a rival community right on the Papacy's doorstep.
Conflicts
Zephyrinus's predecessor Pope Victor I had excommunicated Theodotus the Tanner for reviving a heresy that Christ only became God after his resurrection. Theodotus' followers formed a separate heretical community at Rome ruled by another Theodotus,
Antipope Natalius:
And it appears this group was led by the first ever Anti-pope, Natalius.
Natalius
Natalius (c. 199 – c. 200) was a figure in early church history who is sometimes considered to be the first antipope of Rome.[1]
Antipope:
So what on earth is the antipope?
Antipope
An antipope (Latin: antipapa) is a person who, in opposition to the lawful pope, makes a significant attempt to occupy the position of Bishop of Rome and leader of the Catholic Church.[1]
Pope Callixtus:
This rivalry is what most likely led to the next Pope, Callixtus I being martyred by being thrown down a well, with the person that did this, being martyred by being thrown off a bridge in to the Tiber River in a revenge attack.
Death
According to the apocryphal Acts of Saint Callixtus, Asterius, a priest of Rome, recovered the body of Callixtus after it had been tossed into a well and buried Callixtus' body at night.[9] Asterius was arrested for this action by the prefect Alexander and then killed by being thrown off a bridge into the Tiber River.[9]

Pope Leo VIII v Pope Benedict V:
Sometimes the difference between Pope and anti-pope has caused immense confusion, such is the case with Pope Leo VIII and Pope Benedict V.
Antipope
Sometimes it was difficult to distinguish which of two claimants should be called pope and which antipope, as in the case of Pope Leo VIII and Pope Benedict V.[2]
Pope Leo VIII:
Now, this may appear like a conspiracy theory to you, but it is likely that Pope Leo VIII was in fact supported by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto I, as it was actually Otto I who appointed him.
The Catholic church today reject Pope Leo as an antipope, and the real pope was in fact Benedict V.
Pope Leo VIII
Pope Leo VIII (c. 915 – 1 March 965) was a Roman prelate who claimed the Holy See from 963 until 964 in opposition to John XII and Benedict V and again from 23 June 964 to his death. Today he is considered by the Catholic Church to have been an antipope during the first period and the legitimate pope during the second. An appointee of Holy Roman Emperor Otto I, Leo VIII's pontificate occurred during the period known as the Saeculum obscurum.
Pope Benedict V:
And here, we find out it was not a conspiracy theory at-all.
Benedict V appears to have been quite factually overthrown by Holy Roman emperor Otto I, in favour of Pope Leo VIII the antipope.
Pope Benedict V
Pope Benedict V (Latin: Benedictus V; died 4 July 965) was the bishop of Rome and ruler of the Papal States from 22 May to 23 June 964, in opposition to Leo VIII. He was overthrown by Emperor Otto I.

Pope Benedict V
Avignon:
In fact the confusion got so bad in the 15th Century we even had confusion who the antipope was, as there were now two antipope factions competing with one another.
Was it Avignon, or Pisa?
History
The Western Schism—which began in 1378, when the French cardinals, claiming that the election of Pope Urban VI was invalid, elected antipope Clement VII as a rival to the Roman Pope—led eventually to two competing lines of antipopes: the Avignon line (Clement VII took up residence in Avignon, France), and the Pisan line.

Anti papal sentiment:
All this fighting led to antipapal sentiment and beginning of the protestant reformation.
History
The scandal of the Western Schism created anti-papal sentiment and fed into the Protestant Reformation at the turn of the 16th century.
Monarchs:
But what i find interesting, is the belief that antipopes may have often been financed and supported by kings/monarchs/emperors in order to have a monarch friendly ally Pope.
We saw this already with Otto I.
Antipope
[1] At times between the 3rd and mid-15th centuries, antipopes were supported by important factions within the Church itself and by secular rulers.

Saint Peter's Basilica
Septimius Severus:
So, what i am going to do, is look at who the Roman emperor was during the reign of antipope Natalius, considered the first antipope.
And it would have been Septimius Severus.
Septimius Severus
Lucius Septimius Severus (Latin: [seˈweːrus]; 11 April 145 – 4 February 211) was Roman emperor from 193 to 211. He was born in Leptis Magna in the Roman province of Africa). As a young man he advanced through the customary succession of offices under the reigns of Marcus Aurelius and Commodus. Severus seized power after the death of Emperor Pertinax in 193 during the Year of the Five Emperors.
Link for photo
Septimius Severus
Christian beliefs:
So, i will now look and see if we can find any suggestion whatsoever that Septimius Severus might have been the first ever Roman emperor to support an antipope regime.
First off, we see his policies towards Christians is considered inconsistent.
He did relax laws against the practise of Christianity, and stated they were only to be punished if they refused to worship the emperor and the Gods.
Though he himself was definitely not a Christian, and his syncretism would have likely been considered blasphemy by the church.
Reputed persecution of Christians
At the beginning of Severus' reign, Trajan's policy toward the Christians was still in force. That is, Christians were only to be punished if they refused to worship the emperor and the gods, but they were not to be sought out.[57] Therefore, persecution was inconsistent, local, and sporadic. Faced with internal dissidence and external threats, Severus felt the need to promote religious harmony by promoting syncretism.[58]
Link for photo.jpg)
Bronze head of Septimius Severus
The mob:
And here, we have a mixed report regards to Septimius Severus's relationship with Christians.
Some say he was a persecutor of Christians, where-as others say he had Christians even in the highest positions of his mob.
Reputed persecutions of Christians
A number of persecutions of Christians occurred in the Roman Empire during his reign and are traditionally attributed to Severus by the early Christian community.[61] This is based on the decree mentioned in the Historia Augusta,[59] an unreliable mix of fact and fiction.[62] Early church historian Eusebius described Severus as a persecutor.[63] The Christian apologist Tertullian stated that Severus was well disposed towards Christians,[64] employed a Christian as his personal physician and had personally intervened to save several high-born Christians known to him from the mob.[62]
Expert analysis:
And according to expert analysis from historians and scholars, the persecution of Christians was likely just locals that were not connected to Septimius.
And whilst i find it extremely noble of historians and scholars to protect the good name of such a highly note worthy figure such as a Roman emperor, i do not think the analysis is consistant with it's surroundings.
I feel it is quite apparent what Septimius Severus wanted.
He would appear to have been ok with Christians that played by his rules, and quite bad to Christians that did not, and would likely have been quite happy for one of the Christians in his "mob" to act as Pope.
Summary:
And that is likely the most immediate root cause of the religious secterian divide.

2020.09.26 12:35 MrEscalofrios Un recuerdo muy extraño.

Un dia, a la edad de algunos 10 años, estábamos preparándonos para dormir. Vivíamos en una casa que al frente era negocio y al fondo estaba la sala, el patio y 2da planta con 1 abitacion. Pero por fuera lo único que se alcanzaba a ver era el negocio. El cual tenía una entrada de dobles puertas de madera.
Esa noche de manera súbita empezamos a escuchar golpes exageradamente fuertes en nuestra puerta, al principio creímos que había sucedido algún accidente. Pero al asercarnos nos mi hermano mayor (9 años mayor) y mi madre los golpes no hacían más que ser más rápidos y contundentes. La puerta tenía una pequeña lupa con la que podías ver atravez de ella pero no al revés y vi a mi madre observar y ponerse pálida como fantasma. Le preguntábamos muy temerosos que era y dijo que era un hombre corriendo unas 20 metros hacia la puerta y paterla, luego volvía a tomar impulso y repetía la misma acción una y otra vez. Le gritamos suponiendo que quería entrar a robar y no sabía que había personas adentro. Se detuvo unos segundos y mi hermano y mi madre gritaban con todo su pulmón que se fuera y seguidamente empezó otra vez y con más fuerza a patear la fuerza con todo su peso cada vez más rápido y más fuerte. La puerta está empezando a seder un poco ya que era madera vieja y mi hermano y mi mamá se apoyaban contra la fuerza mientras el seguía tratando de tirarla abajo. Yo estaba en shok y solo podía sentir el inmenso temor de que esa puerta se diera y el entrará. No habían teléfonos celulares en ese entonces y yo no sabía el número de la policía así que mi madre y mi hermano se miraban mutuamente preguntandose quien de los dos iría a la otra habitación para tomar el teléfono y arriesgarse a que el hombre logrará tirar la puerta.
Al final no recuerdo quien llamó pero la policía que tenían su estación a unas 2 manzanas se tardó media hora en llegar y para cuando llegaron el hombre ya se había ido.
Pusimos una puerta de metal poco después. Luego de eso se metieron a robar con éxito en los locales vecinos en varias ocasiones. Después de unos años cuando instalamos una alarma y mantuvimos una arma en casa se intentaron meter, mi hermano mayor ya se había mudado y yo tenía aproximadamente 20 años, cuando empezamos a escuchar a alguien en el techo intentando entrar denuevo pero por el techo. De nuevo el sentimiento de terror me inundó pero al mismo tiempo sentí ira porque no hiba a quedarme sin hacer nada mientras mi madre y mi otro hermano (con autismo mayor que yo por 7 años pero con mentalidad de niño de 5 años) estaban indefensos. Tomé el arma y hice 2 disparos al aire (en la segunda planta que estaba al mismo nivel del techo de donde provenía el ruido pero desde ahí no me podían ver a menos que intentarán saltar. Sone la alarma y empeze a gritar y a insultar al ladrón pero este seguía. Esta vez yo llame con mi teléfono a la policía y les advertí que si se volvían a tomar su tiempo y algo le pasaba a mi familia yo mismo los hiba a denunciar con los noticieros porque estaba grabando la llamada y resultó muy bien ya que a los 5 minutos ya había llegado una patrulla y ya habían capturado a 2 personas con martillo gigantescos y cortadoras de candados. Pero algo no estaba bien.
Ninguno de los capturados estaban sucios o agitados y el techo de mi casa es de tejas y madera incluso algunas plantas crecen ahí, así que debería de estar lleno de polvo o tierra. Así que cuando estábamos todos afuera con la policía nos pusimos a buscar si en las casas vecinas había caído algún ladros a esconderse. Después de 1 hora no encontramos nada. Al casi darnos por vencido al regresar a mi casa en la esquina de enfrente mire un montón de basura y en el logre ver a alguien tirado como si estuviera ebrio. Vi que se había cubierto la cara con una caja de pizza y lo demás descubierto. Ropa de reguetonero y.... DING DING DING los zapatos negros como ollin. Lentamente me acerque al oficial y le conté lo sucedido. El se acercó, vio en su mano una linterna y las manos llenas de tierra jajaja. El oficial le dijo: "cuento hasta 5 para que te levantes" y el no lo hizo seguía finjiendo, al llegar a cinco el oficial comenzó a golpearlo en el estómago con su rifle y el ladrón empezó a llorar como niño diciendo yo no fui jajajja
Les tome una foto con mi celular y les dije que la próxima vez no hiba a llamar a la policía solo les hiba a disparar y todos los vecinos se acercaron a tomarles fotos.
Hasta el día de hoy casi 10 años después mi madre no duerme de noche. Gracias a Dios no volvió a suceder nada más.
Lo curioso es que llegue a la conclusión de que si este ladrón no se detuvo al disparar 2 veces y activando la alarma muy probablemente era el mismo que intentó derribar la puerta de mi casa y probablemente no estaba solo. Sabía que la policía Demoraría y me da escalofríos pensar que sólo querían hacer una masacre o violacion o lo que fuera antes de que la policía llegara en ese entonces cuando yo era un niño.
Gracias por su atención.

2020.06.23 09:15 Maul_Junior A Good-Faith Critique of Vaush's Tiktok presence (Long-ish)

(in before Vaush gets pointed to this on stream, he takes one look at it and goes "there's no fucking way I'm reading all of this")
this is written in good faith and intended to be constructive criticism, because I would like to see you do more and see the improvements that will come naturally. I don't do tiktoks myself because dysphoria is horrible, but have been watching them for a while.

I will sum this up in a few points:
Pre-Point 0: You can upload videos directly from your PC on the Tiktok website if you want to. You could use video from your PC or your streaming camera if you wanted to. Functionality is substantially reduced on the website, but you can still search by terms if you use the URL directly.

Point 1: Presentation (and the bulk of the criticism).
1a) Look directly into the camera. Not necessarily all the time, but you should have a good anchor looking into the camera (and by extension the viewers). Your most recent Tiktok with you in it did MUCH better on this. It's a "Humans connect better with eye contact" thing, but I'm autistic too, so I get it being hard. Practice makes perfect!
1b) Your "Holy Shit, guys" clapping/desk-slapping (including the talking way too closely into the mic) moments and/or energy would play really well, I think.
1c) The more comfortable you are, the better it will play on video. There's no real way to fake this, you just have to keep doing it, and you'll find your voice. Some Tiktokkers have a "set," where they usually film, others will do it wherever. Find your voice.
Point 2: Long-Form vs. the Tiktok Minute
2a) Your main platform is your Youtube/website. Consider using Tiktok as a form of advertising to funnel people to your Channel/streams. Link that shit in your bio and/or videos. Announce upcoming debates with other people on Tiktok. Hell, announce when you're having an open-mic debate night, or when you're starting a new game!
2b) Don't be afraid of making a long-form video series on Tiktok. It should be clearly labelled (that can be seen in the preview, usually ~1/3-ish of the way from the bottom) with the subject and part number. Want to go on a 30-minute rant? Do it 40-50 seconds at a time. It may not be your biggest performer, but that's how you can get your longer messages out, since you said that's what you really want to do there.
2c) While I know you prefer to make educational content to just meme-y things, consider doing ones that you are comfortable with and feel can do authentically as a way to draw in new viewers.
Section 3: Suggestions for content to make (very personally subjective here) that I think would perform well:
3a) Make a video(s) calling out specific groups of people (or individuals) you want to debate (even if they're not on/huge on Tiktok). I'm basically talking about the Sam Seder Libertarian callout videos he made a while back. Use shit-eating grins and smug-ass energy.
3b) Have fun. This doesn't need to be lectures on theory and debate all the time. Try uploading videos of you yelling at your chat, talking about (or assembling/painting) Warhammer stuff, or D&D. Basically anytime on a stream that you clap your hands, look into the camera, and go "Guys!" that might be a good topic for you to do something on.
3c) that Dark Souls video thing with you and Destiny would be perfect. If you have/could get permission, just put the whole thing up on your channel.
3d) Queer content. LGBTQ+ Tiktok is a huge and powerful thing. I know that it's not really a big part of your streaming stuff, but it could be an in to a different side of Tiktok. I think that even just a brief video saying that you're Pan (preferably during Pride month) would go over really well. Hell, you could lean into the beard thing and do a "If your parents don't accept you for being LGBTQ+, I'm your dad now." thing.
3e) Maybe label things so it's a bit more clear that you're actually joking about, because yes, you're edgy boi, but sometimes satire looks a bit too much like the real thing. Usually the jokes are in the video, clarifying hashtags are in the description.
3f) Random suggestions of sounds you could make for others to make videos with (you can make a point with them or use them to draw people in for your other videos): "Put a finger down, Political edition", the Mr. Blue Sky parade of people thing political/Twitch debaters edition....
3g) Baby. As long as your Tiktok followers have been good.
Okay, that out of the way, one last disclaimer: If you think that Tiktok is all about people dancing and that's it? Fine, keep watching the hell that is Straight Tiktok. but I'll keep watchiing Non-Binary Captain America, the army of lesbians that seems to use Tiktok as a dating app, Whatever the fuck this is, and everybody else just vibing over here in Gay Tiktok, interspersed every once in a while with D&D and cosplay RP Tiktok.

2020.06.14 21:22 viliot #Iksdagenval4 Tal i Eskilstuna

Hej allesammans, tack för att ni alla kommit och vill lyssna på mig här i Eskilstuna idag.
Idag är det inte långt tid kvar tills ni, Sveriges befolkning, får bestämma hur Sverige ska styras. Idag växer samtidigt populismen fram. Utan att lägga någon mer tanke bakom det hela skulle man kunna tänka sig att det är det samma som folklighet, vilket det absolut inte är. Folklighet är att vilja folkets bästa och se deras vardag medans populism är att göra det folket vill, även om det skadar dem. Att slå av sina kritiska instinkter mot allt är populism. Allt måste granskas och utvärderas noggrant. Samtidigt måste alla få ha sin chans att yttra sig. Vi är alla lika värda och bör därför ha samma rättigheter. Det är därför tråkigt att populismen tagit sig in i Iksdagen och att motioner som den om monarkin gått igenom. Jag säger inte att en republik kan ha sina fördelar men motionen i fråga är en hastigt ihopkastad röra som inte gör denna viktiga fråga rätta. Att regeringen stödjer utan att gå igenom och granska är idioti. Detta tillsammans med deras valmanifest, som till stor del bara består utav rent väljarköpande som inte är genomtänkt. Saker som att odemokratiska organisationer ska göras olagliga som går emot föreningsfriheten är ren populism som inte borde tas på allvar. Även om du är en idiot ska du ha rättigheter. Hela vänstern med regeringen blir mer och mer populistisk och det är onyttigt för hela Sverige. Som avslut tänkte jag läsa några verser ur "Till glädjen" av Schiller som Europahymnen är musik till.
Men den kunskap, forskarn vinner, Glädjens ljus hans öga rör. Mänskovännen honom finner Hos den lycklige, han gör. Hjälten, som för äran strider, Möter han med ryktets röst, Men den dygdige, som lider, Äger honom i sitt bröst.
Kraft i motgång, helgd av seder, Dygdens, sanningens försvar, Flärdens avsky, hjärtats heder, Slut på världens barndomsdar, Manlig stolthet inför kungar, Åt förtjänsten lagerns lott, Ingen Gud, som blixten slungar, Ingen träldom, - ordning blott!

2020.05.06 02:12 Grampong Homo Divinus: It's The End Of The World As We Know It, Part I

*And I… Don’t… Know… Why… *
All due apologies for the REM roll.
One conclusion which is clear from recent events is that the Modern World as we have known it our entire lives has come to an end for reasons being attributed to Coronavirus (I’m not willing to blame Coronavirus just yet without ruling out all the other Players). This is NOT the end of Everything and Everyone, obviously, because after a transition period a New World will arise in the Old World’s place. Exactly what World will replace the one which has passed is uncertain in this liminal time. Unfortunately, that’s how it must be.
What is NOT uncertain is WHY this change is happening. But before diving into those topics, I’m going to cover some needed foundational material first.
My formal training and certification from the Consensus is in Babylonian Money Magick, so I was trained to use a LOT of advanced tools and skillz that help understand many of the finer points of finance and the economy. My stomach churning estimate is when the final total is reached, the total cost of the damage done to the world economy so far this year will amount to more than $100 trillion, which is roughly ¼ the TOTAL VALUE of ALL homo sapien contributions to the planet Earth as of January 1, 2020. That sort of accounting write-off really should require something HUGE to justify it. The most recent event which I can say is certainly of a similar nature was the Late Bronze Age Collapse. The last time I can say with absolute certainty there was a LARGER write-off was the “totaling” the Earth got for the reset ~11,600 years ago with the Great Flood and the destruction of Atlantis through asteroid impact and crust shift (as I’ve talked about many times starting with the Intro to this subreddit. Whatever the reason is, it really should be AT LEAST ¼ as serious as THAT (which tends to limit the possibilities to a small set of MAJOR reasons).
But before I dive into the giant rabbit warren surrounding our current Global Crisis, I’d first like to give a nod to my sponsor for this snippet, a Global Crisis looming on our horizon, just waiting for its moment on the World Stage (to be honest, I never thought I would have a sponsor for a snippet, but these are “strange days” indeed). Let me introduce my sponsor: DHMO (dihydrogen monoxide, also known as hydroxylic acid). Take a bow DMHO.
The Threat Of Unregulated DMHO
DMHO is a chemical investigated by scientists for years, but still a mystery in many respects with properties still not understood. Despite this lack of solid scientific consensus surrounding its various properties, DMHO is a commonly used through the world virtually unregulated (usually without ever even labeling it as DMHO). So far scientists have identified various risk factors:
• DMHO is a major component of acid rain. • DMHO is a powerful "greenhouse gas" and a major contributor of global warming/climate change. • If improperly handled may cause severe burns. • Contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape. • Accelerates the corrosion and rusting of many metals. • Has been know to cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes. • Has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients. 
DMHO is found throughout modern society, despite to its many dangers and lack of mention of its ubiquitous presence. DMHO is used:
• As an industrial solvent and coolant. • In nuclear power plants. • In the production of Styrofoam. • As a fire retardant. • Frequently associated with many forms of cruel animal research. • Exists in the distribution of pesticides. Even after repeated washings, produce remains contaminated by this chemical. • DMHO is an additive in certain "junk-foods", soft drinks, and other food products. 
DMHO has been sitting in the Global Crisis Green Room for a VERY long time, waiting patiently for the right moment when politicians and world leaders will reveal these dangers which can be then fanned into a Global Crisis which need not go to waste. DMHO sat through so many others’ turn on the Global Crisis Stage, watching others step up to take THEIR turn. But for now Coronavirus commands the Stage, after knocking DMHO’s very close heavier chemical cousin, CO2, off the Stage and into the front row seats (that Global Crisis Stage can be brutally unforgiving at times).
Many people have tried to bring the dangers of DMHO to the public, only to be dismissed are cranks and hoaxers, most likely by those wanting to save DMHO for a future Global Crisis (a few of those in your pocket for when needed is always a good thing). DMHO will continue to wait patiently until called from the Green Room to the Stage, continuing a vigil of over a million sars (billions of years).
And now back to our current Global Crisis sponsor Coronavirus.
A Viewer’s Guide To The Singularity
The short answer to ALL the many of the questions people are asking about what is going on is “Yes!” (I know, I know, that answer appears contradictory and not what anyone wants to hear).
The reason is because we have entered the Event Horizon of the Singularity, that unique point through which all the many timelines of the Past must converge into a single Present from which all the infinite Futures emerge where homo sapiens will find their Destinies (snippet(s) on the Singularity to follow). The nature of Approaching the Singularity means that the Veil breaks down, with all the various timelines and dimensions beginning to overlap, merge, and come into conflict, just like Wolfman and Perez chronicled in Crisis on Infinite Earths (this is part of what is being recognized as the Mandela Effect, though some of that can simply be attributed to bad memories, lol).
Everyone is going to experience a different Approach to the Singularity. The differences depend on the choices they and those closest to them make. While I don’t know the precise details of any given Approach (this is the ultimate in YMMV), one thing I DO know is that I find the Consensus explanation offered by various “officials” around the world is fundamentally inconsistent and parts of it simply HAS to be wrong. The fact that I CANNOT determine which parts of the Consensus story are accurate and which parts are bogus means that I have to consider ALL possible explanations. I start by eliminating those that CANNOT be ruled out by demonstrable facts and logic.
Even then, all I can know is my Approach, each Approach combines various Elements from Narrative Space in a unique way. For example, one Approach may feature a Pole Flip caused by a Coronal Mass Ejection catalyzed by the ionized tail of Comet Flyby (a longshot Trifecta Approach if I’ve ever seen one). I’m going to do my best to avoid THAT Approach.
The most important consideration in my analysis is that the TRUE reason behind current events HAS to generate enough benefit to justify the cost (which in this case is AT LEAST $100 TRILLION). I’ll attack the ball of yarn that is our current Global Crisis by pulling on Coronavirus and exploring as the Narrative Space unravels from there.
Coronavirus Confusionvirus
No economic cost is paid without the expectation of greater return, so the economic damage currently being done to the world MUST be thought cheaper than the alternative. In the case of Coronavirus, the Consensus Reaction is an attempt to prevent even GREATER damage from a “novel” version of Coronavirus. Now, I’ve known about Coronavirus’ omnipresence since grade school (my father followed flu stats like many men follow conference standings). Countless different forms over countless sars (billions of years) have infected countless animals while rapidly mutating (every species gets at least some sort of Coronavirus for their own). Every year countless different new versions of Coronavirus travel through the homo sapien population, shape-shifting RNA as it goes.
The entire world before never shut down for Coronavirus, until now. Therefore, there HAS to be something different about THIS “novel” Coronavirus than all the trillions of mutant versions which came before (at least to justify the “official” Narrative). At this point I feel like the youngest child at a Seder dinner asking “Why does THIS Coronavirus differ from all the other Coronaviri?” Unlike Passover, I’m not getting any sort of good answer to my question.
When I try to find an answer, I keep running into two primary mutually exclusive category of Approaches as I explore Narrative Space. Some data from the governments of areas like New York, China, Italy, etc. seems to support a “superdeadly” Coronavirus version. But other countries with MUCH MORE complete and thorough data sets like Iceland and South Korea supply data sets which models the progression of this “novel” Coronavirus as being little different than other annual mutant variants the produce the annual flu. I find it ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE to reconcile those disparate countries’ reports into the single disease progression offered by the “official” Narrative (which it needs to be since the test is testing for a single virus). This means that the quest continues even DEEPER into Narrative Space in order to try and suss out what the actual truth might be.
The More The Deadlier
My first stop along my voyage through the Sea of Alternatives, adds in the possibility (probability?!?!) of this being a homo sapien bioweaponized Coronavirus. Anyone attempting to follow the Great Game who doesn’t think that every Global Player with a biolab who believes they’re sitting at the Final Table hasn’t weaponized Coronavirus needs to go back and start over with remedial reading like The Prince and Rules for Radicals. Of COURSE every global player weaponized Conoravirus, and did so a soss (~60 years) ago. But those Coronaviri have NEVER been used in this manner before, which means something has changed.
Many different Coronaviri infest these Approaches, some deadlier than others, with all sorts of strange combinations possible. Whether or not the 28 Days Later-type release is intentional or not is always a question. Of course, regardless of who starts it (and/or frames someone else for starting it) the implications of these Narratives are clear. We’ve entered the HOT era of biological warfare (with the shadow of nukes always looming in the background).
Welcome to the “New Normal” of Fallout).
Gaia Strikes Back!
Gaia, the Earth, produced Coronaviri LONG before homo sapiens ever walked her surface (LONG before any of our actions offended her). These Approaches have Gaia FINALLY getting fed up with SARS (thousands of years) of homo sapien shenanigans and sent Coronavirus as a Final Solution to the homo sapien problem.
Gridler’s Day of the Animals, Fessenden’s The Last Winter), Shyamalan’s The Happening), Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind), and Disney’s Moana) all navigate this Narrative Space in their own uniquely artistic ways. These Approaches remove any conscious homo sapien agenda (so for once we didn’t plot our own demise). This then makes the problem VERY intractable for homo sapiens to solve, since our natural tendencies led us to be so out of balance with the rest of the Earth that Gaia did something radical to return the balance.
Corona Plandemic
So far my analysis is based on the postulate that Coronavirus itself is a deadly existential threat to homo sapiens worthy of quartating the all accomplishments achieved over the last three plus sars (12,000 years). But there are many, MANY more Narratives where this “novel” Coronavirus is a Plandemic rather than a Pandemic (likely to be attributed on a typo by an unnamed subordinate, they ALWAYS get blamed). The Wachowski Siblings explore this Narrative Space in V For Vendetta) (remarkable similar to current events). These Approaches use Coronavirus as a MacGuffin by the Elite for the centerpiece of their latest Great Working (it wouldn’t be very good writing if it were straightforward and simple like a virus is just making everyone sick, now would it?).
The question then becomes just WHICH of the various possibilities from Narrative Space are happening without the public noticing, and what the upcoming reveal might bring.
It’s Not Nice To Fool Mother Nature
Before moving to the potential homo sapien agendas, I’ll cover those non-virus related Natural Approaches I rate highly (Corona will be involved, but just not the virus variety). I cannot remove the possibility that a Natural Global Crisis of a non-virus nature is coming and that Coronavirus agreed to be the scapegoat to prevent a worse situation happening while preparations are made.
Here Comes The Sun
This Corona is Sun’s Corona the aura of plasma which surrounds the Sun and other stars and is the hottest part of a star, BY FAR, topping 1 million degrees Kelvin. While the Sun’s Corona is the steady source of life-giving energy, the modern technological world is in BIG TROUBLE should a really large really badly timed Coronal Mass Ejection belch come down on Earth.
The last of these HUGE belches hit Earth a few sosses ago (160 years) with the Carrington Event. This largest geomagnetic storm on record was at the dawn of the electric communication era, and a strike today would be the equivalent of a global EMP, potentially shutting down the electric grid and frying most electronic devices, forcing a total rebuild of the entire information infrastructure (and who knows how much repair to the electric grid).
*Solar Attack, Solar Crisis), and Knowing) all explore this Narrative Space (with Knowing wandering adding quite a few Narrative Elements often found in other Approaches).
Gaia’s Into Swapping
The North and South Poles of the Earth, with the magnetic field Gaia produces, are her crowns, her Coronas (with those spectacular auroras adding colorful bling to her crown). In these Approaches, the longer Gaia keeps her crowns in the same place, the heavier and more uncomfortable they become. Gaia gets tired of wearing her crowns in their current configuration and decides to swap them for her comfort, something she has done many, many times in her history. According to her history, she’s due (if not overdue) for a crown swap anytime now. But just like any lady, Gaia is fickle and is wont to change her mind at a moment’s notice. The results of Gaia going Head Over Heels in a pole swap would likely be similar to a Global EMP, with HUGE portions of the electric/electronic infrastructure destroyed/damaged.
Absolute Zero) and Polar Storm demonstrate this Approach.
I Don't Know Where I'm A-Gonna Go When The Volcano Blows
Another overdue Global Crisis is the Yellowstone Caldera, leading candidate for Earth’s Next Supervolcano, blowing its top, its Corona. Significant seismic rumblings echo around the Earth, including mighty Krakatau roaring. The effects of Yellowstone blowing in a super-eruption would put enough material into the atmosphere to produce an ELE through reduction in food production alone. Supervolcano) and Emmerich’s 2012) explore this part of Narrative Space in dramatic (and widescreen CGI) action.
Civilizations are FAR more fragile than species, so the prospects for a world we remotely recognize emerging on the other side are between “slim and none”.
Last Night Of The Deep Armageddon Impact Of The Comet (2012)
As the megablockbuster movie title above indicates, this Approach through Narrative Space is an “oldie but goodie”, dating back WELL before the first hominid decided to start walking on a full-time basis, as those dinosaurs can vouch (well, at least their bones, the birds, and some extra iridium can). In this Approach, the asteroid/comet in question doesn’t keep proper “social distance” and brings its Corona down to Earth, without even asking permission first. See Deep Impact and the upcoming Greenland (for some reason this trailer is tough to find, hopefully my linking won’t get the nice people who left this copy up in trouble for a few hundred people entertained by my snippets to see) for the variations on this Approach.
There are so many potential candidates flying around that it’s hard to keep track of them all, with new ones showing up for the party all the time. From Asteroid 1998 OR2 which just flew by to Comet ATLAS and now Comet SWAN, the general outline of the Approach here is pretty straight forward. Big rock(s) from space hit the Earth and do enormous damage. Bad stuff happens. Lots of people die. A LOT of rebuilding needs to be done afterwards.
The 5th Dimension: Up, Up, And Away To The Age Of Aquarius
On the other side of Narrative Space from IMAX blockbuster disaster flick crashing civilization into the dirt lies the chick flick of homo sapiens solving the worlds problems with Everyone activating their Crown Chakra, their Corona, to rise above and overcome our divisions through Unity and Love (and a Coke and a song). This Approach turns the Great Cosmic Wheel, progressing one Astrological Age (the Age of Pisces) to the next (the Age of Aquarius) as written about in FAR more words than necessary by Jung in his capstone *Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self, and celebrated in incredible harmonies echoing through the 5th Dimension and BEYOND.
There are almost as many variations of the Approach as there are people who meditate. The Ascension is all about a mass Awakening achieved through Expanding Consciousness and raising Energy and Vibrations. Results of the Ascension could range from nothing changes other than everything runs right and everyone is happy; to the current Earth is destroyed and an entire New Earth with New Earth bodies replace it; to everyone runs around like superpowered Rishis; to the end of the entire Universe with everyone entering a new higher dimensional Reality; to just about ANYTHING.
The biggest challenge with the Ascension Approach to the Singularity is resource allocation. Unity and Love is grand and all, but it can struggle to pay the bills. Love and $5 will get you coffee at Starbucks, and the Ascension Approaches play a little loosey-goosey with where they are getting that $5.
End Part I, continuing in Part II
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed.

Gaia, the Earth, produced Coronaviri LONG before homo sapiens ever walked her surface (LONG before any of our actions offended her). These Approaches have Gaia FINALLY getting fed up with SARS (thousands of years) of homo sapien shenanigans and sent Coronavirus as a Final Solution to the homo sapien problem.
Gridler’s Day of the Animals, Fessenden’s The Last Winter), Shyamalan’s The Happening), Miyazaki’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind), and Disney’s Moana) all navigate this Narrative Space in their own uniquely artistic ways. These Approaches remove any conscious homo sapien agenda (so for once we didn’t plot our own demise). This then makes the problem VERY intractable for homo sapiens to solve, since our natural tendencies led us to be so out of balance with the rest of the Earth that Gaia did something radical to return the balance.
Corona Plandemic
So far my analysis is based on the postulate that Coronavirus itself is a deadly existential threat to homo sapiens worthy of quartating the all accomplishments achieved over the last three plus sars (12,000 years). But there are many, MANY more Narratives where this “novel” Coronavirus is a Plandemic rather than a Pandemic (likely to be attributed on a typo by an unnamed subordinate, they ALWAYS get blamed). The Wachowski Siblings explore this Narrative Space in V For Vendetta) (remarkable similar to current events). These Approaches use Coronavirus as a MacGuffin by the Elite for the centerpiece of their latest Great Working (it wouldn’t be very good writing if it were straightforward and simple like a virus is just making everyone sick, now would it?).
The question then becomes just WHICH of the various possibilities from Narrative Space are happening without the public noticing, and what the upcoming reveal might bring.
It’s Not Nice To Fool Mother Nature
Before moving to the potential homo sapien agendas, I’ll cover those non-virus related Natural Approaches I rate highly (Corona will be involved, but just not the virus variety). I cannot remove the possibility that a Natural Global Crisis of a non-virus nature is coming and that Coronavirus agreed to be the scapegoat to prevent a worse situation happening while preparations are made.
Here Comes The Sun
This Corona is Sun’s Corona the aura of plasma which surrounds the Sun and other stars and is the hottest part of a star, BY FAR, topping 1 million degrees Kelvin. While the Sun’s Corona is the steady source of life-giving energy, the modern technological world is in BIG TROUBLE should a really large really badly timed Coronal Mass Ejection belch come down on Earth.
The last of these HUGE belches hit Earth a few sosses ago (160 years) with the Carrington Event. This largest geomagnetic storm on record was at the dawn of the electric communication era, and a strike today would be the equivalent of a global EMP, potentially shutting down the electric grid and frying most electronic devices, forcing a total rebuild of the entire information infrastructure (and who knows how much repair to the electric grid).
*Solar Attack, Solar Crisis), and Knowing) all explore this Narrative Space (with Knowing wandering adding quite a few Narrative Elements often found in other Approaches).
Gaia’s Into Swapping
The North and South Poles of the Earth, with the magnetic field Gaia produces, are her crowns, her Coronas (with those spectacular auroras adding colorful bling to her crown). In these Approaches, the longer Gaia keeps her crowns in the same place, the heavier and more uncomfortable they become. Gaia gets tired of wearing her crowns in their current configuration and decides to swap them for her comfort, something she has done many, many times in her history. According to her history, she’s due (if not overdue) for a crown swap anytime now. But just like any lady, Gaia is fickle and is wont to change her mind at a moment’s notice. The results of Gaia going Head Over Heels in a pole swap would likely be similar to a Global EMP, with HUGE portions of the electric/electronic infrastructure destroyed/damaged.
Absolute Zero) and Polar Storm demonstrate this Approach.
I Don't Know Where I'm A-Gonna Go When The Volcano Blows
Another overdue Global Crisis is the Yellowstone Caldera, leading candidate for Earth’s Next Supervolcano, blowing its top, its Corona. Significant seismic rumblings echo around the Earth, including mighty Krakatau roaring. The effects of Yellowstone blowing in a super-eruption would put enough material into the atmosphere to produce an ELE through reduction in food production alone. Supervolcano) and Emmerich’s 2012) explore this part of Narrative Space in dramatic (and widescreen CGI) action.
Civilizations are FAR more fragile than species, so the prospects for a world we remotely recognize emerging on the other side are between “slim and none”.
Last Night Of The Deep Armageddon Impact Of The Comet (2012)
As the megablockbuster movie title above indicates, this Approach through Narrative Space is an “oldie but goodie”, dating back WELL before the first hominid decided to start walking on a full-time basis, as those dinosaurs can vouch (well, at least their bones, the birds, and some extra iridium can). In this Approach, the asteroid/comet in question doesn’t keep proper “social distance” and brings its Corona down to Earth, without even asking permission first. See Deep Impact and the upcoming Greenland (for some reason this trailer is tough to find, hopefully my linking won’t get the nice people who left this copy up in trouble for a few hundred people entertained by my snippets to see) for the variations on this Approach.
There are so many potential candidates flying around that it’s hard to keep track of them all, with new ones showing up for the party all the time. From Asteroid 1998 OR2 which just flew by to Comet ATLAS and now Comet SWAN, the general outline of the Approach here is pretty straight forward. Big rock(s) from space hit the Earth and do enormous damage. Bad stuff happens. Lots of people die. A LOT of rebuilding needs to be done afterwards.
The 5th Dimension: Up, Up, And Away To The Age Of Aquarius
On the other side of Narrative Space from IMAX blockbuster disaster flick crashing civilization into the dirt lies the chick flick of homo sapiens solving the worlds problems with Everyone activating their Crown Chakra, their Corona, to rise above and overcome our divisions through Unity and Love (and a Coke and a song). This Approach turns the Great Cosmic Wheel, progressing one Astrological Age (the Age of Pisces) to the next (the Age of Aquarius) as written about in FAR more words than necessary by Jung in his capstone *Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of the Self, and celebrated in incredible harmonies echoing through the 5th Dimension and BEYOND.
There are almost as many variations of the Approach as there are people who meditate. The Ascension is all about a mass Awakening achieved through Expanding Consciousness and raising Energy and Vibrations. Results of the Ascension could range from nothing changes other than everything runs right and everyone is happy; to the current Earth is destroyed and an entire New Earth with New Earth bodies replace it; to everyone runs around like superpowered Rishis; to the end of the entire Universe with everyone entering a new higher dimensional Reality; to just about ANYTHING.
The biggest challenge with the Ascension Approach to the Singularity is resource allocation. Unity and Love is grand and all, but it can struggle to pay the bills. Love and $5 will get you coffee at Starbucks, and the Ascension Approaches play a little loosey-goosey with where they are getting that $5.

2020.05.04 01:59 Grampong Homo Divinus: It's The End Of The World As We Know It

*And I… Don’t… Know… Why… *
All due apologies for the REM roll.
One conclusion which is clear from recent events is that the Modern World as we have known it our entire lives has come to an end for reasons being attributed to Coronavirus (I’m not willing to blame Coronavirus just yet without ruling out all the other Players). This is NOT the end of Everything and Everyone, obviously, because after a transition period a New World will arise in the Old World’s place. Exactly what World will replace the one which has passed is uncertain in this liminal time. Unfortunately, that’s how it must be.
What is NOT uncertain is WHY this change is happening. But before diving into those topics, I’m going to cover some needed foundational material first.
My formal training and certification from the Consensus is in Babylonian Money Magick, so I was trained to use a LOT of advanced tools and skillz that help understand many of the finer points of finance and the economy. My stomach churning estimate is when the final total is reached, the total cost of the damage done to the world economy so far this year will amount to more than $100 trillion, which is roughly ¼ the TOTAL VALUE of ALL homo sapien contributions to the planet Earth as of January 1, 2020. That sort of accounting write-off really should require something HUGE to justify it. The most recent event which I can say is certainly of a similar nature was the Late Bronze Age Collapse. The last time I can say with absolute certainty there was a LARGER write-off was the “totaling” the Earth got for the reset ~11,600 years ago with the Great Flood and the destruction of Atlantis through asteroid impact and crust shift (as I’ve talked about many times starting with the Intro to this subreddit. Whatever the reason is, it really should be AT LEAST ¼ as serious as THAT (which tends to limit the possibilities to a small set of MAJOR reasons).
But before I dive into the giant rabbit warren surrounding our current Global Crisis, I’d first like to give a nod to my sponsor for this snippet, a Global Crisis looming on our horizon, just waiting for its moment on the World Stage (to be honest, I never thought I would have a sponsor for a snippet, but these are “strange days” indeed). Let me introduce my sponsor: DHMO (dihydrogen monoxide, also known as hydroxylic acid). Take a bow DMHO.
The Threat Of Unregulated DMHO
DMHO is a chemical investigated by scientists for years, but still a mystery in many respects with properties still not understood. Despite this lack of solid scientific consensus surrounding its various properties, DMHO is a commonly used through the world virtually unregulated (usually without ever even labeling it as DMHO). So far scientists have identified various risk factors:
• DMHO is a major component of acid rain. • DMHO is a powerful "greenhouse gas" and a major contributor of global warming/climate change. • If improperly handled may cause severe burns. • Contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape. • Accelerates the corrosion and rusting of many metals. • Has been know to cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes. • Has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients. 
DMHO is found throughout modern society, despite to its many dangers and lack of mention of its ubiquitous presence. DMHO is used:
• As an industrial solvent and coolant. • In nuclear power plants. • In the production of Styrofoam. • As a fire retardant. • Frequently associated with many forms of cruel animal research. • Exists in the distribution of pesticides. Even after repeated washings, produce remains contaminated by this chemical. • DMHO is an additive in certain "junk-foods", soft drinks, and other food products. 
DMHO has been sitting in the Global Crisis Green Room for a VERY long time, waiting patiently for the right moment when politicians and world leaders will reveal these dangers which can be then fanned into a Global Crisis which need not go to waste. DMHO sat through so many others’ turn on the Global Crisis Stage, watching others step up to take THEIR turn. But for now Coronavirus commands the Stage, after knocking DMHO’s very close heavier chemical cousin, CO2, off the Stage and into the front row seats (that Global Crisis Stage can be brutally unforgiving at times).
Many people have tried to bring the dangers of DMHO to the public, only to be dismissed are cranks and hoaxers, most likely by those wanting to save DMHO for a future Global Crisis (a few of those in your pocket for when needed is always a good thing). DMHO will continue to wait patiently until called from the Green Room to the Stage, continuing a vigil of over a million sars (billions of years).
And now back to our current Global Crisis sponsor Coronavirus.
A Viewer’s Guide To The Singularity
The short answer to ALL the many of the questions people are asking about what is going on is “Yes!” (I know, I know, that answer appears contradictory and not what anyone wants to hear).
The reason is because we have entered the Event Horizon of the Singularity, that unique point through which all the many timelines of the Past must converge into a single Present from which all the infinite Futures emerge where homo sapiens will find their Destinies (snippet(s) on the Singularity to follow). The nature of Approaching the Singularity means that the Veil breaks down, with all the various timelines and dimensions beginning to overlap, merge, and come into conflict, just like Wolfman and Perez chronicled in Crisis on Infinite Earths (this is part of what is being recognized as the Mandela Effect, though some of that can simply be attributed to bad memories, lol).
Everyone is going to experience a different Approach to the Singularity. The differences depend on the choices they and those closest to them make. While I don’t know the precise details of any given Approach (this is the ultimate in YMMV), one thing I DO know is that I find the Consensus explanation offered by various “officials” around the world is fundamentally inconsistent and parts of it simply HAS to be wrong. The fact that I CANNOT determine which parts of the Consensus story are accurate and which parts are bogus means that I have to consider ALL possible explanations. I start by eliminating those that CANNOT be ruled out by demonstrable facts and logic.
Even then, all I can know is my Approach, each Approach combines various Elements from Narrative Space in a unique way. For example, one Approach may feature a Pole Flip caused by a Coronal Mass Ejection catalyzed by the ionized tail of Comet Flyby (a longshot Trifecta Approach if I’ve ever seen one). I’m going to do my best to avoid THAT Approach.
The most important consideration in my analysis is that the TRUE reason behind current events HAS to generate enough benefit to justify the cost (which in this case is AT LEAST $100 TRILLION). I’ll attack the ball of yarn that is our current Global Crisis by pulling on Coronavirus and exploring as the Narrative Space unravels from there.
Coronavirus Confusionvirus
No economic cost is paid without the expectation of greater return, so the economic damage currently being done to the world MUST be thought cheaper than the alternative. In the case of Coronavirus, the Consensus Reaction is an attempt to prevent even GREATER damage from a “novel” version of Coronavirus. Now, I’ve known about Coronavirus’ omnipresence since grade school (my father followed flu stats like many men follow conference standings). Countless different forms over countless sars (billions of years) have infected countless animals while rapidly mutating (every species gets at least some sort of Coronavirus for their own). Every year countless different new versions of Coronavirus travel through the homo sapien population, shape-shifting RNA as it goes.
The entire world before never shut down for Coronavirus, until now. Therefore, there HAS to be something different about THIS “novel” Coronavirus than all the trillions of mutant versions which came before (at least to justify the “official” Narrative). At this point I feel like the youngest child at a Seder dinner asking “Why does THIS Coronavirus differ from all the other Coronaviri?” Unlike Passover, I’m not getting any sort of good answer to my question.
When I try to find an answer, I keep running into two primary mutually exclusive category of Approaches as I explore Narrative Space. Some data from the governments of areas like New York, China, Italy, etc. seems to support a “superdeadly” Coronavirus version. But other countries with MUCH MORE complete and thorough data sets like Iceland and South Korea supply data sets which models the progression of this “novel” Coronavirus as being little different than other annual mutant variants the produce the annual flu. I find it ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE to reconcile those disparate countries’ reports into the single disease progression offered by the “official” Narrative (which it needs to be since the test is testing for a single virus). This means that the quest continues even DEEPER into Narrative Space in order to try and suss out what the actual truth might be.
The More The Deadlier
My first stop along my voyage through the Sea of Alternatives, adds in the possibility (probability?!?!) of this being a homo sapien bioweaponized Coronavirus. Anyone attempting to follow the Great Game who doesn’t think that every Global Player with a biolab who believes they’re sitting at the Final Table hasn’t weaponized Coronavirus needs to go back and start over with remedial reading like The Prince and Rules for Radicals. Of COURSE every global player weaponized Conoravirus, and did so a soss (~60 years) ago. But those Coronaviri have NEVER been used in this manner before, which means something has changed.
Many different Coronaviri infest these Approaches, some deadlier than others, with all sorts of strange combinations possible. Whether or not the 28 Days Later-type release is intentional or not is always a question. Of course, regardless of who starts it (and/or frames someone else for starting it) the implications of these Narratives are clear. We’ve entered the HOT era of biological warfare (with the shadow of nukes always looming in the background).
Welcome to the “New Normal” of Fallout).
Gaia Strikes Back!

These Approaches have Gaia FINALLY getting fed up with SARS (thousands of years) of homo sapien shenanigans and sent Coronavirus as a Final Solution to the homo sapien problem.

2020.05.01 16:10 ShivasRightFoot TIL Critical Theory literally could be used to justify discrimination against Jews: my review of Giroux's "Spectacles of race and pedagogies of denial"

I was challenged to find a scholarly work which represented my view that Critical Race Theory engages in post hoc reasoning to push the idea of "pervasive racism". Supporters of the practice of Critical Theory will often look at generalized impressions of "left academia", such as those discussed by Jordan Peterson, and realize there aren't many specific examples cited by such critics. They view this as a weakness of the critics' arguments and see it as a possibility these criticisms do not reflect the reality of Critical Theory scholarship. Supporters of Critical Theory are convinced criticism of their methods is the result of generalized impressions coming from internal biases against the ideas of Critical Theory.
So I looked for a work of Critical Theory which addressed the ideas of Herrnstein and Murray (1994). What I found was a paper by one of the most prominent Critical Theorists in North America which could be construed to endorse Nazi discrimination against Jews.
Giroux, Henry A. "Spectacles of race and pedagogies of denial: Anti-black racist pedagogy under the reign of neoliberalism." Communication Education 52.3-4 (2003): 191-211.
Henry Giroux is an extremely prominent Critical Theory scholar who does things like hang out with The Strokes and appear on Sam Seder's Majority Report. His wikipedia article describes him as:
One of the founding theorists of critical pedagogy in the United States, he is best known for his pioneering work in public pedagogy, cultural studies, youth studies, higher education, media studies, and critical theory.
So not just some shlub.
In that paper he argues that racism is not defined as personal animus towards Blacks expressed by individuals making important decision on the basis of race. No, no, no, my sweet summer child.
Racism is the presence of any aggregate difference in outcomes between ethnic groups for any reason, explicitly including any case of perfect meritocracy which happens to result in aggregate differences between ethnic groups. Here are some choice quotes:
Paul Street (2002) puts the issue forcibly in a series of questions that register the primacy of, and interconnections among, politics, social issues, and race. [Here is included an extended block quote which lists aggregate racial differences in social outcomes between Black and White populations, such as "Why is the median black household income ($27,000) less than two thirds of median white household income ($42,000)?"]...
p. 199
Focusing on individuals rather than on groups, neoliberal racism either dismisses the concept of institutional racism or argues that it has no merit. In this context, racism is primarily defined as a form of individual prejudice, ...
p. 200
Hence, neoliberal racism provides the ideological and legal framework for asserting that since American society is now a meritocracy, government should be race neutral, affirmative action programs should be dismantled, civil rights laws discarded, and the welfare state eliminated...
p.201
It then goes through a description of Trent Lott's widespread public censure for expressing support for Strom Thurmond, a racist politician. The paper argues this censure was in fact a form of "neoliberal racism" because it reinforced the idea that racist individuals who publicly express support for specifically the policy of Segregation represent an expression of racism. Let that sink in.
He redefines racism as simple difference in aggregate outcomes, even if the result of perfect meritocracy, and then says punishing people who say traditionally racist things is itself racist because it distracts from issues of differences in aggregate outcomes:
The Trent Lott affair is important not because it charts an influential Senator’s fall from grace and power because of an unfortunate racist remark made in public, but because it is symptomatic of a new racism that offers no resources for translating private troubles into public considerations.
So that is arguably taking a potential piece of counter evidence against pervasive racism (the fact Trent Lott was widely criticized for his racist remarks) and interpreting it as evidence of the existence of pervasive racism. This is practically the definition of post hoc reasoning.
But what is more pernicious about this paper is the way it completely redefines the idea of racism such that a perfect meritocracy can be considered racist. Perfect meritocracy was usually held as the example of non-racism, and for good reason. Giroux's redefinition of racism as differences in aggregate outcomes could easily be used to justify many of Nazi Germany's ordinances against Jews in the 1930s, especially the ones concerning limits on their professional activities. By Giroux's definition, the forces of "structural racism" work most in favor of Jews, and any "antiracist" must advocate for policies which equalize the achievement gap between Jews and Whites. By Giroux's argument, to do less would be "a reprehensible attack on the very nature of democracy itself."
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/0363452032000156190
An extended quote from pages 200-201 to give more context:
Within the last 20 years, a more virulent form of the new racism has appeared that also affirms the basic principles of color blindness, but instead of operating primarily as a discourse of denial regarding how power and politics operate to promote racial discrimination and exclusion, neoliberal racism is about the privatization of racial discourse. Moreover, neoliberal racism is proactive and functions aggressively in the public arena as an ideological and pedagogical weapon powerfully mobilized by various conservatives and right-wing groups. Neoliberal racism asserts the insignificance of race as social force, and it aggressively roots out any vestige of race as a category at odds with an individualistic embrace of formal legal rights. Focusing on individuals rather than on groups, neoliberal racism either dismisses the concept of institutional racism or argues that it has no merit. In this context, racism is primarily defined as a form of individual prejudice, while appeals to equality are dismissed outright. For instance, racial ideologues Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray write in The Bell Curve (1994)
In everyday life, the ideology of equality censors and straitjackets everything from pedagogy to humor. The ideology of equality has stunted the range of moral dialogue to triviality … . It is time for America once again to try living with inequality, as life is lived … (pp. 533––534, 551)
Arguing that individual freedom is tarnished if not poisoned by the discourse of equality, right-wing legal advocacy groups such as the Center for Individual Rights and the foundation for Individual Rights in Education argue that identity politics and pluralism weaken rather than strengthen American democracy because they pose a threat to what it means for the United States “to remain recognizably American” (Aziz, 2002, p. 5). But such groups do more than define American culture in racist and retrograde terms: They also aggressively use their resources, generously provided by prominent right-wing conservative organizations such as the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation, the Adolph Coors Foundation, and the Scaife Family Foundation, to challenge racial preference policies that are not based on a “principle of state neutrality” (see “Civil rights’ Mission section” of Center for Individual Rights website). With ample resources at their disposal, advocates of neoliberal racism have successfully challenged a number of cases before the Supreme Court over the legality of affirmative action programs, campus speech codes, hiring practices, the Violence Against Women Act, and the elimination of men’s sports teams in higher education (for an excellent summary and analysis of many of these legal cases, see Aziz, 2002). Hence, neoliberal racism provides the ideological and legal framework for asserting that since American society is now a meritocracy, government should be race neutral, affirmative action programs should be dismantled, civil rights laws discarded, and the welfare state eliminated. As Nikhil Aziz (2002) observes, “The Right argues that, because racism has been dealt with as a result of the Civil rights Movement, race should not be a consideration for hiring in employment or for admission to educational institutions, and group identities other than ‘American’ are immaterial.” (p. 15) Neoliberal racism is unwilling to accept any concept of the state as a guardian of the public interest. Motivated by a passion for free markets that is matched only by an antigovernment fervor, neoliberal racism calls for a hollowing out of the social welfare functions of the state, except for its role in safeguarding the interests of the privileged and the strengthening of its policing functions. Rejecting a notion of the public good for private interest, advocates of neoliberal racism want to limit the state’s role in public investments and social programs as a constraint on both individual rights and the expression of individual freedom. In this view, individual interests override any notion of the public good, and individual freedom operates outside of any ethical responsibility for its social consequences. The results of this policy are evident in right-wing attacks on public education, health care, environmental regulations, public housing, race-based scholarships, and other public services that embrace notions of difference. Many of these programs benefit the general public, though they are relied on disproportionately by the poor and minorities of color. As Zsuza Ferge (2000) points out, what becomes clear about neoliberal racism is that the attack on the big state has indeed become predominantly an attack on the welfare functions of the state … . The underlying motif is the conviction that the supreme value is economic growth to be attained by unfettered free trade equated with freedom tout court … . The extremely individualist approach that characterizes this ethic justifies the diagnosis of many that neoliberalism is about the “individualization of the social.” (p. 183) By restricting the state from addressing or correcting the effects of racial discrimination, state agencies are silenced, thus displacing “the tensions of contemporary racially charged relations to the relative invisibility of private spheres, seemingly out of reach of public policy intervention” (Goldberg, 2002, p. 217).
Edit: Misstated that the extended quote was from pages 199-200.

2020.04.29 22:08 Kalla-mig-Grodan Pressmeddelande angående Vetlanda-krisen

(Moderata Samlingspartiets partiordförande Grodan håller ett pressmeddelande angående Vetlanda krisen, detta sänds live på samtliga sociala medier) Vänner,
Jag tror ingen missat de dramatiska händelserna i Vetlanda. Där ett dussintal män och kvinnor visar på total brist på respekt av Sveriges seder och lagar. Där man uppträtt sig hotfullt mot tjänstemän och varit beväpnade. Detta är rent ut sagt vedervärdigt och jag och mitt parti tar helt avstånd från händelsen och vi kan inte förstå hur man kan agera på detta sätt. Det är helt ofattbart. Det är en ännu större problematik att vi har ett väletablerat parti alltså Arbetarpartiet Nils Dacke som vägrar ta avstånd från händelsen och kräver deras frikännande. VI anser att om de är misstänkta för brott skall de häktas och det skall följas enligt svensk standard. Argumentet att småländsk separatism är en fristad från svensk rättsväsende är så oerhört dumt och urbota korkat då Småland är en del av Sverige och varit de i minst 1000 år. Vad som krävs just nu är ett stabilt och bra agerande från såväl riksdagen men även regeringen. Det gäller att vi inte låter denna akt av terrorism förbipassera! En handlingskraftig riksdag och regering krävs och därför vädjar jag till regeringen att öppna upp samtal med samtliga partier i riksdagen för hur vi tillsammans löser denna konflikt.

"I don't think we should shake hands ever again." - Dr. Anthony Fauci, drunk with power

Doc Blockers

It’s Thursday, which in the Before Times meant it was almost the weekend, and which now means there’s another staggering unemployment number to wrap your head around.
Demonstrating the administration’s commitment to providing the public with crucial health information, Vice President Mike Pence has blocked top health officials from appearing on CNN.
With 16 million Americans out of work, and over 454,300 confirmed cases in the country, one individual’s behavior matters the most. Unfortunately that individual is Donald Trump, who today responded to a piece from the Wall Street Journal editorial board criticizing his briefings as useless and tone-deaf by pointing out that they forgot to mention his ratings are higher than the finale of The Bachelor. At least he really proved ‘em wrong.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Six Feet Apart with Alex Wagner (journalist and co-host of Showtime’s The Circus) offers a window into the hidden worlds of this pandemic through conversations with people on the frontlines. From the grocery store to the criminal justice system, this new series will delve into the impact of what’s likely to be the defining event of our lifetimes. New episodes come out every Thursday wherever you listen to podcasts

Under The Radar

Low-income students are getting left behind in the transition to online learning, and the crisis could deepen educational inequality. School districts across the country have shifted to some form of distance learning, usually online, and not every student has the resources to participate. About 17 percent of students nationwide don’t have computers at home, and 18 percent lack broadband internet access. Low-income families and families of color are especially likely to face those obstacles. Lower-income students may also not have the physical space to focus on classwork or watch lectures, and their parents may not be able to stay home to help them. Some school districts are distributing devices to help close the digital gap, and working to expand internet access through whatever means possible.

What Else?

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved out of the ICU, but remains in the hospital as he recovers from COVID-19.
The Biden campaign is set to announce two new policy proposals in an appeal to Bernie Sanders supporters: A plan to lower the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 60, and another to forgive student debt for low- and middle-income borrowers.
A bipartisan group of senators has demanded that Trump explain why he fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general. To be fair, Trump has already made it clear why he fired Atkinson, it’s simply an unacceptable reason to have fired him, and may have been illegal, too!
Food banks have seen a huge surge in demand during the coronavirus crisis, just as the charities face their own shortages. If you’re in a position to donate, you can help ease the strain through our Coronavirus Relief Fund
Some Trump aides (and Attorney General Bill Barr, whom Trump considers an aide) are pushing to withdraw social-distancing guidelines (or as they put it “reopen the country”) in May. As we all learned from Trump’s previous Easter deadline, this is something that the Trump administration gets to negotiate with the virus, and is definitely worth discussing.
A sailor from the USS Theodore Roosevelt with coronavirus has been admitted to the ICU in Guam. As of Thursday, 416 crew members have tested positive.
Google has directed its employees not to use Zoom on company devices, either because of its security issues or because the guy who maintains Google Hangouts got sad.
Saturday Night Live will return this weekend with a remotely-produced episode. It’s not clear how much of the show will be live, or how it will function without its cavernous wig vault.
The New Yorker interviewed Fran Liebowitz about quarantining in New York, among other things, and it rules: “Last night, I was peeling a cucumber and I was infuriated. Like, why am I peeling this cucumber? Why am I not in a restaurant, where they know how to peel a cucumber, and where I’m not doing it?”

Be Smarter

The Trump administration has expelled 10,000 migrants at the border since the coronavirus crisis began. Emergency public-health measures have given U.S. Customs and Border Protection broad authority to bypass immigration laws, which the agency has used to send thousands of migrants directly back into Mexico. Acting CBP commissioner Mark Morgan has defended the measures as necessary to prevent coronavirus from spreading among detainees in Border Patrol custody. The upshot is that the Trump administration has virtually overturned asylum law, denying migrants any kind of due process to seek protection. The expulsions have included nearly 400 children, who would normally be protected from rapid removal by U.S. anti-trafficking laws.

What A Sponsor

Atoms are the ideal everyday shoes. They are shockingly comfortable and the only shoes to come in quarter sizes for a precise fit. Atoms have stretch laces so you can slip them on and off, and copper lining, which reduces bacteria and odor. Vogue calls Atoms "the most thoughtfully designed shoe ever," Esquire says, "Your secret-weapon sneakers may have just arrived." They fit perfectly, feel amazing, and look sleek. Atoms are your new favorite shoes.

Is That Hope I Feel?

Vietnam has donated 550,000 masks to five European countries.
Gov. Chris Sununu (R-NH) has reversed his past position on widespread absentee voting, and announced that New Hampshire will allow voters to cast mail-in ballots if coronavirus is still an issue in November.
Another voting victory in New Hampshire today: A judge struck down a GOP-crafted law that made it much harder for college students to register to vote.
Doctors in central Pennsylvania are setting up a drive-through testing site that accommodates a horse and buggy for the local Amish and Mennonite communities.
California saw its first daily drop in intensive care hospitalizations.
New York City restaurants are raising money to feed frontline health-care workers.

2020.04.07 14:27 _ratboi_ third bake and last before seder + need help troubleshooting

Hi guys, with seder just around the corner i've made two loaves just before passover begins and i'll take a break from baking for a week.
These are probably the best looking loaves I've made- but the long one is just too open, the bubbles are irregular, some huge. the round one might also be on the more open side but not as bad as the long loaf. they are both from the same bulk, so they were fermented the same, how is this possible?
my process was almost exactly to this recipe, but it was vary warm the past couple of days so i cut the bulk to 1h and turned every 2o minutes instead of 30 minutes.

2020.03.04 02:21 AllMyName al Aqsa is the Third Temple, Part Two, Electric Boogaloo

I didn't make the post about this same topic two weeks ago but I wanted to add my two cents. Tongue in cheek, I'm not trying to piss anyone off or be sacrilegious or sanctimonious, so take this all with a grain of salt.
al Aqsa is the Third Temple.
The First Temple was destroyed in either 587 or 586 B.C.E. on Tisha B'Av by Nebuchadrezzar II.
Rabbinic sources state that the First Temple stood for 410 years and, based on the 2nd-century work Seder Olam Rabbah, place construction in 832 BCE and destruction in 422 BCE (3338 AM), 165 years later than secular estimates.
The First Temple was constructed during the reign of David’s son, Solomon, and completed in 957 bc. Other sanctuaries retained their religious functions, however, until Josiah (reigned c. 640–609 bc) abolished them and established the Temple of Jerusalem as the only place of sacrifice in the Kingdom of Judah.
The Rabbinic estimate is more generous, allotting an extra 50 years. Archeological evidence suggests it was actually built in the 9th century, as they claim. Putting the date of its destruction on the 422 date conflicts with the construction of the 2nd Temple, and with the historical accounts of the siege of Jerusalem. I'm going to ball park it towards the generous side and say it stood for 400 years
The Second Temple was built in 516 BCE and destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. 586 years.
That's 986 years of Temple. 1000. A millennium.
Muslims believe al Aqsa has been the site of a holy sanctuary going back to Abraham's time. Do note we also believe he originally established a house of worship in Makkah for monotheistic worship of God.
The Second Caliph, Umar, established the modern day "Noble Sanctuary" when he visited Jerusalem in 637 CE. He was accompanied by Ka’b al-Aḥbār, a Yemenite Jewish convert to Islam who is a reputable source of dank Jewish memes in Islam. According to Islamic lore, it was Ka’b who decided where al Aqsa should be!
It is reported that when Umar marched into Jerusalem with an army, he asked Ka‘b: "Where do you advise me to build a place of worship?" Ka‘b indicated the Temple Rock, now a gigantic heap of ruins from the temple of Jupiter.[5] The Jews, Ka‘b explained, had briefly won back their old capital a quarter of a century before (when Persians overran Syria), but they had not had time to clear the site of the Temple, for the Byzantines (Rūm) had recaptured the city. It was then that Umar ordered the rubbish on the Temple Rock to be removed by the Nabataeans, and after three showers of heavy rain had cleansed the Rock, he instituted prayers there. Umar is said to have fenced it and, some years later, an Umayyad Khalif built the Dome of the Rock over the site as an integral part of the Aqsa Mosque. Until this day, the place is known as Qubbat al-Ṣakhra (the Dome of the Rock).
According to most sources, the two major buildings we see in the Noble Sanctuary today were built in the form we recognize around 690 AD by the fifth Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan. The inscribed dedication at the Dome of the Rock mentions 691/92 - the completion date.
It [the Dome of the Rock] is the earliest archaeologically-attested religious structure to be built by a Muslim ruler and the building's inscriptions contain the earliest epigraphic proclamations of Islam and of the prophet Muhammad. The inscriptions proved to be a milestone, as afterward they became a common feature in Islamic structures and almost always mention Muhammad. The Dome of the Rock remains a "unique monument of Islamic culture in almost all respects", including as a "work of art and as a cultural and pious document", according to historian Oleg Grabar.
Abd al-Malik basically laid the architectural groundwork for all Masjids that would follow. His son finished renovating the main al Aqsa mosque in 705 CE. The modern day building most closely resembles the one re-built by the Fatimid caliph Ali az-Zahir in 1035 CE after an earthquake in 1033 CE.
Even if you choose not to count the ~century of Crusader control, or the years between earthquakes and reconstruction or renovation, al Masjid al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock are two of the oldest extant pieces of Islamic architecture. If you want to be pedantic, the Saudis ruthless destruction of nearly all of the historical Islamic architecture in Makkah and Madinah makes them in fact the oldest two surviving mosques mentioned in the Qu'ran. They are without a doubt the oldest two in the Levant.
They've stood longer than either temple, and longer than both combined. Even only in their modern form. They are houses of worship. If you can get your hands on it and you speak Hebrew, pick up "The Qu'ran in Other Words", (הקוראן בלשון אחר) a translation written by Subhi Ali Adawi, "an Israeli-Arab educator from the village of Turan in the Galilee." Read Chapter 1 and 112 and let me know if they ring any bells.
Al Aqsa is the Third Temple.
I'm admittedly not very well versed on Temple history. If you are a well read religiously observant Jew, I actually wager you're not reading this or participating here, but if you are, please correct me. I really only used two sources:
  1. https://www.biu.ac.il/JS/rennert/history_3.html https://www.biu.ac.il/JS/rennert/history_4.html
  2. Britannica and Wikipedia
The first two links are articles written by Yisrael Shalem for Bar Ilan University's Safed extension.
Yisrael Shalem was born in Chicago and moved to Israel at age 17. He is a licensed tour guide and has worked as a guide for the past 20 years, with English-speaking individuals and groups. He lectures in the Land of Israel Studies Dept. at Bar-Ilan University's extension in Safed. He has published guide books on the Galilee, Golan and Negev. At present he is writing a book on Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter. He is also working on a doctorate on holy sites in northern Israel from the First Temple Period to the Byzantine Period. He and his wife Phyllis write together, and have four lovely children.

2020.02.11 09:32 TheIdSay Danske mainstream medier kysser røv på de amerikanske mainstream medier

For fanden da tv2 news, "pete buttigieg vandt iowa og stiger i new hampshire". nej og nej. det gjorde han ikke. bernie stiger bestemt også.
hvad er der med tv2 news? 90% af deres nyheder kommer direkte fra cnn, msnbc, new york times og washington post.
hvilket nok forklarer hvorfor de lyder som en establishment der laver statspropaganda uden nogle stakes i det. HVER gang der sker det mindste skidt for bernie sanders så over-rapportere og over-fabrikere tv2 news dramaet.
spørg jer selv: hvor ofte har tv2 news skrevet eller vist en nyhed der er "det går godt for warren! det går godt for biden! the går godt for bloomberg! det går godt for buttigieg! the går godt for klobuchar!"
og hvor mange gange har i hørt dem nævne at bernie sanders stiger i alle meningsmålingerne og fører i mængden af individuelle donorer? nej? det er fordi de skriver af fra de amerikanske mainstream medier som bliver pludseligt blinde hver gang noget godt sker for sander's kampange.
kunne tv2 ikke se at få sig nogle journalister der går eget arbejde??
kæft jeg savner radio 24/7 ....
danske mainstream medier er nogle hacks som ikke engang kan finde ud af at tjekke de officielle polls på https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html
simpelt hen stupidt, amatør og kujon-agtigt at man ikke kan finde ud af at researche selv og skabe sin egen formulering...

2020.02.09 16:18 drak0bsidian Chag Tu b'Shvat Sameach! Some facts and sources to celebrate this Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot.

An under-represented holiday begins tonight, and in lieu of a dvar Torah I opted to provide this link-heavy conversation starter about the day! Feel free to post your ideas, opinions, and sources below, too.
Even as winter continues in its traditional form and snow piles up around me, Tu b'Shvat is a day to remember that spring is just around the corner! There are many ways to celebrate the day, the most common being to recognize the life-giving properties of trees, and to plant one yourself!
To start, here is a short sermon by the renowned Rabbi David Wolpe, Max Webb Senior Rabbi of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles. If you want to share other divrei Torah for Tu b'Shvat, please submit them below in the comments.
A very poplar activity is to plant a tree on Tu b'Shvat. If you can't seed the soil outside your house, however, there are many organizations that will do so for you, elsewhere in the world:
Google "plant a tree in X," where X is your country, state, or province, and you will certainly find planty of opportunities.
Another tradition for the holiday is to have a seder! It's something I've wanted to do for many years but never gotten around to trying; just from reading about it I think I'll make it my intention to lead one next year. The JNF even provides a hagaddah, as they are walnut to do, and there's even a guide for kids from everyone's favorite Jewish kids' library!
Now go forth and plant a tree, celebrate the spring, and enjoy the outdoors!

2020.02.04 17:43 Damn_Taffer The Iowa Caucus: What the Hell Happened?!

Part one: what the hell happened?!
Like many of you, last night I sat down to watch the first in the nation contest for the Democratic primary nomination process: the Iowa caucus. Like many Bernie Sanders supporters, I was confident, yet realistic. In the months leading up to the caucus, the polls had jumped around a bit before Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg took first and second places respectively. I was elated to see Bernie leading his rivals by double digits- especially for such a crucial contest (because the winner of the Democratic Iowa caucus usually goes on to win the party’s nomination, historically).
For the live results, (and since I don’t watch TV) I tuned into my favorite radio show “The Majority Report with Sam Seder” on Youtube and waited for the caucuses to finish. As time went on, nothing happened. Reports stayed at 0%. An hour went by, then another, then another. Something was wrong. In all my years of watching the Iowa caucus, the results were never this late. Reports started coming in that the Democratic party found some “irregularities” with the votes. This and combined with a phone app crashing- meant that the results were going to be delayed. But something strange was going on…
___________
Part two: strange happenings
While watching Sam Seder’s program, he began to receive calls from Iowans who were either present during the caucus or witnessed the results firsthand. Dozens of these calls poured in and the callers reported the results from their precincts. The trend was thus: 1st place: Bernie Sanders 2nd place: Pete Buttigieg 3rd place: Elizabeth Warren 4th place: Joe Biden
Overall, the tale was the same: Bernie did well, Biden did not, the caucus goers had the results, but the Democratic Party was refusing to release them. So I did some digging. The official story was that the Dems were using a phone app to tally votes and that the app crashed or failed. But local reports from Iowans and volunteers said that they had the results but they weren’t allowed to release them. There was a report that a volunteer couldn’t get ahold of party officials in order to report the results of the caucus. In this particular instance, this particular individual physically drove to the party headquarters to deliver the results only to be turned away.
___________
Part three: some background
In order to fully understand the situation some background is needed. I’ll try to be as brief as I can. In 2016, Hillary Clinton narrowly defeated Bernie Sanders in the Iowa caucus- kick starting a long and embittering primary season. In the end, Hillary secured the nomination with the help of the Democratic party’s (extremely undemocratic) superdelegates- or delegates that can back whomever they want regardless of the contests won. In exchange for Bernie backing out of the primary, Bernie wanted the role of superdelegates reduced so the primary process can be, ya know, democratic. Flash forward to 2020 and the Democratic party pays a company to make a caucus app for phones called “Shadow” (which FEC records reveal that the Pete Buttigieg campaign had direct financial ties with). This app was to, ostensibly, create “transparency” with the caucus system.
Okay, so real quick: how do caucuses work? Well unlike primaries, caucuses involve several rounds and “voting with your bodies”. Basically, the supporters of each candidate are grouped in a room and counted. At the end of the first round, the candidates that didn’t qualify due to lack of support choose another candidate to back. Basically that’s how winners are chosen in a caucus (I’m being brief for sake of time). So according to early reports, around the time when caucuses started, the app failed to function as advertised. But caucuses continued because volunteers were still able to track the results on paper.
So what the hell? Why isn’t the Democratic party releasing the results?
___________
Part four: what really happened
Three important events happened right before Iowa that I think you should know. The first was that the Democratic party made an exception for billionaire Mike Bloomberg and waved the debate requirement for him that mandated signatures from grassroots supporters. Second, the party proclaimed that they would fight Bernie at the convention for the nomination. Third, a rumor leaked that John Kerry might leave his cushy bank job in order to stop Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination. These three events, coupled with the Dems general anti-progressive agenda, set the precedent for Iowa.
This whole ordeal will be excused as an act of incompetence and not the calculated effort that it was/is. Party elites will blame the technology- the Shadow app, and scapegoat underlings in order to disguise the fact that this was a vote fixing attempt at covering up Bernie’s Iowa victory and stopping his momentum. It’s clear that the Democratic party does not like Bernie or want him as their nominee, despite the popularity of him and his ideas. He’s received more individual, small scale donations than any other politician in American history. His ideas like universal healthcare and education have lots of public support. Now he’s gaining massive public backing and the party elites are shook. The John Kerry bankers and the Bloomberg billionaires of the Democratic party know that a Bernie Sanders presidency might threaten their rich coffers and they’re trying everything in their power to stop him, suppress the vote, cover up the results, and take us for fools. In reality, the CIA has literally overthrown other countries in South America for less.
____________
Part five: that’s all well and good but where do we go from here?
Despite the lack of official results, Pete Buttigieg went on stage last night and declared victory. With this in mind, the Democratic party will take one of the following courses of action:
  1. They’ll release the results claiming someone other than Bernie won (like Buttigieg)
  2. They’ll quietly release the results of a Bernie Sanders win but only when those results won’t risk his campaign gaining momentum
  3. They just won’t release the results or they’ll create the narrative that the results of a Bernie win cannot be trusted
What we do know is that Bernie’s campaign recorded the results of the caucus on their own. These results reflect the reports that were heard from callers on Sam Seder’s show and reports from volunteers on the ground: Bernie won and Biden did poorly.
Next week is the New Hampshire primary, which is, thankfully, not a caucus. Bernie is currently leading by a significant margin. Let’s hope that the Democratic party doesn’t continue to undermine the will of the voters. I’ll post updates when available.
EDIT: fixed some formatting. sorry I'm at work
EDIT 2: Here are some sources that were requested:
Here’s the story about the person who drove the results to the party officials only to get turned away:
“The only problem was, when the time came during Monday’s caucuses, those precinct chairs could not connect with party leaders via phone. Mr. Bagniewski instructed his executive director to take pictures of the results with her smartphone and drive over to the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters to deliver them in person. She was turned away without explanation, he said.”

2020.01.22 08:30 holocaustofvegans Sam Harris's list of "good-faith guys" and "smear merchants." (with some citations)

I have a partial list of the good and bad characters that Sam writes stories about, and I find it amusing in sum. At what point does a psychologist say these are the hallucinations of a madman?

The honest actors in Harris's mindscape include:

















The biggest dishonest actors are the blatant professional smear merchants that include:
















* "She doesn't know anything about 9/11" Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (who grew up in the Bronx, New York.)



That's not to say you can't steelman Sam for having some skepticism. He's very agnostic about the honesty of:


(I wasn't able to fit every name into Sam's "enemies list.")

You can't see it anymore:

But it had been very popular, and when the snapshot was taken had only been posted hours ago and should have still been in the feed. You can see that it was eventually removed without any notification or explanation from the moderators:
https://www.reddit.com/samharris/comments/erguzu/sam_harriss_list_of_goodfaith_guys_and_smeaff40e8n/?context=3
I also reposted it to atheism, but they deleted it and banned me. slatestarcodex (a sub based on a neoreactionary blog) deletedit as well. That should give you an idea of how far atheism has fallen.
I can explain Sam's views in more good faith™ than the moderators at his sub would allow.

2020.01.09 00:38 leocohen99 An Introduction to Dave Rubin

“The Left got a little too PC so I changed all of my opinions about the economy, social issues, systemic racism, health care, and history.”
-Cody Johnston (describing the likes of Dave Rubin)
However, maybe it wasn’t just because “the Left got a little too PC.” Ana Kasparian (Rubin's former friend and co-worker) has stated that he only left TYT because he wanted more money. The Koch Brothers were then happy to provide Rubin with the funding to serve as a token gay “liberal”. At the very least, this seems to be Dennis Prager's take on the situation.
I struggle to believe that his shift was a completely natural evolution, considering how quickly a 40 year-old man went from saying "If you guys know anything about me at this point, you know I do like Bernie. He’s the guy that pretty much everything he says I agree with." to obsessively hating on Bernie and the Left. He went from saying he'd be "the first one to hold Trump's feet to the fire" to hanging out with the Trumps in Mar-a-Lago and failing to criticize Trump for pretty much anything.
However, it is not entirely implausible, as Dave does fall into a rather large category of people who were anti-SJW atheists in the early 2010's, and then went on to increasingly focus on the SJW's up until 2016/2017 where they felt like Trump was the anti-SJW leader and thus began to slowly adopt other aspects of his ideology. It is possible that Dave was just part of this trend; however, it is also possible that he was merely taking advantage of this trend to create a new, larger audience. As he said when he was still with TYT, "the worst part of not being a partisan reactionary nutjob is that those who agree with you aren't big retweeters.". In my opinion, he has become "a partisan reactionary nutjob", and with it has come a substantially larger audience, constant appearances on Fox News, the ability to tag along with and open for Jordan Peterson on his tours, and, yes, a lot more retweets.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide...
But before I get to the more "fun part of this post", I think it's worth noting why anyone should care about Dave Rubin.
The reason I think he is such a destructive force in political media is that he has successfully positioned himself as a liberal for a lot of people. As a gay man who used to work for the progressive outlet TYT, he has convinced his audience that watching him gives them a leftist perspective, despite the fact that he spends all his time denouncing the Left and propagating conservative talking points. He almost never allows anyone on the Left onto his show despite many prominent leftists (Kyle Kulinski, David Pakman, Destiny, Sam Seder, Michael Brooks, Ana Kasparian, Contrapoints, Nathan J. Robinson, Dusty Smith, Benjamin Dixon, Hasan Piker, Oliver Thorne, etc) offering/requesting to go on. The only exception is when they are either there to bash the Left (Weinstein brothers) or a presidential candidate (Williamson, Yang, Gabbard). So, he is pretty much conservative validation porn. Dennis Prager even said this to his face. His audience ostensibly gets to hear this gay LA liberal tell them every bad thing they think about the Left is correct. This increases political polarization and stops people from seeking out genuine leftist perspectives.
Meanwhile, he sanitizes the far-right by offering them time on his show to present themselves as much more moderate and sensible than they are normally portrayed. He tells his audience that they are controversial, yet almost never actually tells his audience the radical views they hold that make them controversial. Rather, he uses them as examples of how intolerant the Left has become, and presents them as allies against the SJW's and the Regressive Left. This serves to further radicalize his audience.

What former friends/guests have to say
Shoe0nHead- "dave needs to seriously take a step back and think about why so many former fans/friends of his dislike him now instead of brushing it off as “i am the last real liberal they are pushing me out of the liberal club”"
Blaire White- “Dave Rubin is a horrible friend and person”
Sam Harris- “What Dave may be experiencing is getting captured by his audience... YouTube has essentially been swallowed by the alt-right”
Joe Rogan- “Cognitively limited” (note: it is disputed whether he is actually calling Rubin cognitively limited)
Cathy Young- “Routinely promotes far-right people, asks them softball questions & allows them to misrepresent themselves as reasonable centrists” (also "a hack")
Hasan Piker- "We played basketball every Sunday... definitely better on the court than he is in the marketplace of ideas"
Larry King- Demonstrates a complete lack of any respect for Rubin by taking a phone call in the middle of their live interview, and then in their next discussion calls Rubin's thoughts "ridiculous"
Kyle Kulinski- "Behind the scenes, he's the biggest of all the snowflakes"
Chris Ray Gun- "I don't talk to him anymore because he freaked out after I told him to just calm down... and then he unfollowed me and complained to Colin (Moriarty) and was like 'I don't like Chris' behavior', and I'm like, 'You fucking pussy. You pussy!'"
Sarah Haider- “Basically a living strawman”
Claire Lehman- “A big baby”
Milo Yiannopoulos- “Go to hell, Dave”
Cenk Uygur- "He still pretends to be a liberal while taking Koch brothers' money and giving platforms to well-known anti-semites"
Stefan Molyneux- “Appeased the far-left”
Ana Kasparian- "Stupidity is incredible. Possibly unmatched by anyone else in the grifter class."
Josephine Mathias- "holy shit it’s like he took all the debunked & embarrassing anti-sjw arguments from 2016 & put it in a book" also, "Dave Rubin is a fraud & i wish i saw through his BS before i went on his show"
Chloé S. Valdary- "I criticized a tweet he posted in what I thought was a constructive manner. He responded in a way that was degrading and deeply hurtful. So now I know."
John Iadarola- “I have never heard anyone use the word ‘ideas’ more, and never come up with one… he uses the word ‘idea’ like he just studied abroad and it’s a foreign word he brought back”
Tommy Sotomayor- “Dave Rubin is gay! NOOOO! I was in his presence! I shook his hand!"

Stupid comments (Maybe we shouldn’t be too hard on him; after all, his brain is still in recovery mode)
In his book Rubin says he would cut the government by 1/3 if he could, laughably claiming that nobody would notice and then the day his book came out, that number magically turned into 1/2. It's almost as if Rubin is pulling these numbers out of his ass and didn't even bother to look into where the government spends its money (about half goes to social security, medicare, and medicaid, and I'm sure those recipients would notice if there benefits were cut in half)
The Left hates gamers because they get shit done
Jesus was around with a lot of muslims
Blames California wildfires on SJW's
Boycotting Chick-Fil-A because it will no longer donate to anti-LGBTQ groups (reminder that Dave is LGBTQ)
Has no idea what reactionary means
“The alt-right as a shitposting, fun, call out the bullshit, mock-the-power thing is amazing… you know where the funny stuff is coming? It’s coming out of the alt-right."
"the Arabs are backwards, fundamentalist wacko's"
Hitler was on the left because he was checks notes "an art-loving vegetarian"
Terrible Bolsanaro take
There should be a side thing next to President (he seems to not know that the VP exists)
His "New Center" features the likes of Mike Cernovich, Paul Joseph Watson and Stefan Molyneux
There's a "necessary space" for Infowars because mainstream media is bad
Floods cannot be stopped
Praises 14 year old who has called for mass genocide of muslims and hates gays
Ilhan Omar conspiracy theories
He says that the problem with the Left is that they call everyone bigots, but constantly says anyone on the left is a bigot
Has no clue what single-payer healthcare is
The government doesn't do anything good. If the post office closed tomorrow it would be alright because competition would start kicking in
Gets schooled by Joe Rogan on regulations
Pretty much everything he said in his reddit AMA
Candace Owens is "much bigger" than Kanye, she could run for Senate
Extremely braindead rant in which he claims anything the government does is authoritarianism, and that Bernie is going to enact laws to stifle free speech were he to enter office
Implied that his former boss/friend, Cenk Uygur, might support the Nice terror attacks
Mocks celebrities for checks notes telling people to stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic
Gets triggered by Elmo telling kids not to be racist

Softball interviews
Stefan Molyneux- black and white people have differently sized brains, also Rubin apparently displayed more agreement then he let on, but edited it out
Lauren Southern- Jews are responsible for starting the Canadian Nazi party
Bridgette Gabriel- George Soros is a Nazi
Tommy Sotomayor- He is a complete homophobe, who is friendly with David Duke, and has said Jews chose the Holocaust
Ben Shapiro- Rubin's completely fine with how much of a homophobe he is
David Horowitz- Obama is a communist (Horowitz is also a slavery apologist)
Milo Yiannopoulos- The Jews run everything
Donald Trump Jr- “You can call me whatever you want. You could call me a fag right now and it wouldn’t mean anything to me.” (I guess he isn’t “holding Trump’s feet to the fire”, as he promised)
Mike Cernovich- Gives him a pass for all his controversies, and then has the gall to complain about deplatforming with Cernovich, while ignoring the fact that he is notorious for trying to cancel people like Sam Seder and James Gunn
Tommy Robinson- Brushes off Robinson's crimes as "trumped up charges" without even telling his audience what those charges were for

Major Bias
Dave Rubin markets his show as being at the forefront of the battle of ideas, in which all ideas are given equal opportunities to persuade. However, Rubin very much fails to live up to this. At first Rubin defended himself by arguing that he mainly criticized the Left because he felt responsible for policing his own side. However, he has fully transformed into a “classical liberal” (a.k.a. libertarian/conservative), yet still exclusively criticizes the Left, and invites guests who will do the same. This makes the Rubin Report into much more of a conservative echo chamber than a true battle of ideas.
  1. When they are only there to attack the Left
  2. When they are far more famous than he is, and thus offers a major boost to his platform (these people very rarely agree to go on)

Dave Rubin's Book (please don't burn it!)
Dave Rubin wrote a boring book full of dumb arguments and flat-out untruths. So, of course his book was not well-received. The Spectator wrote a devastating review, as did a libertarian for Business Insider. This caused Dave Rubin to have a meltdown, calling it a "Modern Book Burning.".
The very next day, Dave celebrated the fact that his book made it onto the NYT Best Sellers list (which is odd, considering he constantly calls NYT fake news). Anyways, it turns out that his book only made it onto the list due to bulk orders, likely from some conservative organizations trying to prop up one of its mouthpieces. This is made more obvious by the fact that in its opening week on Amazon, Dave's hardcover version ranked #132, while his kindle version ranked #134,873, and his audiobook version ranked #16,383. Normally all three would be around the same, so this huge disparity in rankings further implies that the book was far from successful other than some bulk orders of his hardcover version.
I compiled some of the dumb/funny takes from his book and this twitter thread did a more in-depth analysis.

The Experts Dave Rubin gets everything wrong
Dave Rubin is constantly complaining that the experts get “everything wrong.” Thus, he argues that people ignore the experts, and listen to him. So, it’s only fair that we take a look at his record of making predictions. One theme, you will see is that Dave Rubin sees the world through the lens of an anti-SJW, and his predictions are just often based on SJW’s failing.
ESPN won’t exist as a cable sports network within 5 years (seemingly because it hired someone who hates Trump)
Gingrich-Cain 2012 (didn’t happen)
Christie-Rubio 2016 (didn’t happen)
Trump will drop out of 2016 election by November, 2015
Trump will drop Pence as his VP before 2016 election (didn’t happen)
Trump won’t seek a second term
Trump will get 30% of black vote in 2020
Record number of minorities will vote against the Democrats in 2020
Universities as we know them will be irrelevant in 15 years.
The NFL alternative, the XFL, will be a massive success because it will ignore politics and force people to stand for the national anthem (It filed for bankruptcy a year later).
Trump mentions #freemilo at the RNC (didn’t happen)
Tulsi bounce after the debate (didn’t happen)
Andrew Yang would have the biggest jump after the first debate (didn’t happen)
Trump wins 2020 in landslide
Bernie's base will turn on him because he's a straight, white male
Titled video "The Next Prime Minister of Canada? - Maxime Bernier"... Bernier's far-right People's Party went on to win ZERO seats in the election Youtube will only have "verified" voices within 2 years

A Failed Comedian (This is no exaggeration. He is literally the first thing to come up when you google failed comedian
Two failed standup performances (or mediocre market research)
Reusing the same jokes

Unintentionally hilarious comments
“I want you to walk into a bar and order yourselves a full-bodied opinion. I want you to get absolutely wasted on facts until 3:00 a.m., and then, when you’re just about ready to pass out, I want you to get another large glass of reality and chug it.”
"I have to say that my brain is still in recovery mode from taking in so many high-level, important ideas"
"If the dial of ideas was turned to low the last few years, it's quickly moving into the hot position"
"The Churning of Ideas"
"As I’ve said to you before, authoritarians love authoritarianism"
“I feel like if you read a lot you become bisexual”
Being on the fringe is sexy
Passage about conservatives being in the political closet
"Huge Win in the Battle of Ideas"

Victim Complex
Had meltdown over Quillette writing an article that mildly critiques him
Blocks anyone who even slightly criticizes him
Threatens lawsuit over article he doesn’t like
SteakGate: That time he tried getting a google employee fired over a joke
Never-ending complaints about censorship -https://twitter.com/search?q=(censor%20OR%20Censorship)%20(from%3Arubinreport)&src=typed\_query
Baselessly assumes Youtube is messing with his youtube account
Refuses to have actual liberals/progressive on his show

Some closing questions for Dave
You often rail against safe spaces and echo chambers, which is something we agree on. However, you tend to block people on twitter for disagreements, almost exclusively talk to right-wingers (or left-wingers that aim their criticism on the left) on your show despite many left-wingers offering to be on it, have said you mainly get your news from The Blaze and The Daily Wire, and literally created a paywalled website that acts as an echo chamber. So, do you worry that you are building an echo chambesafe space for yourself?
Back when you called yourself a progressive, you said aimed most your criticisms on the left because you felt like you were responsible for policing your own side. Yet now that you are admittedly on the right, you still almost exclusively criticise the left. Why do you no longer feel the need to police your own side?
And of course: Dave, this is a very brave move on your part kudos! Have you heard about the sjw nonsense on the majority report where they keep challenging you to a debate? You should have Sam on and totally DESTROY him in the battle of ideas. Proceeds go to charity.

If you want to dive deeper down the Dave Rubin rabbit hole, I highly suggest Timbah.On.Toast's three-part series, Dave Rubin's Battle of Ideas (or as I like to call it, Dave Rubin's battle to have an idea). This video is also very good. Also, The Majority Report's videos dunking on Dave Rubin are always fun to watch.
And, here's a google drive which provides an even wider selection of Rubin's "Dipshit Takes"
