The US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin—the man who presided over the worst, most incompetent, most humiliating military defeat in the history of our nation—is black. Of course, he’s black. He was appointed by Joe Biden to display the wonderful diversity of the most progressive president in history. He wasn’t chosen because he was a brilliant military leader (obviously). He was chosen because he was a political hack ready and willing to embrace even the most suicidal left-wing policies. Left-wing policies are by their very nature suicidal because the defining characteristic of the Left is that it hates America and wants to “dismantle” it and replace it with the left-wing fantasy of a socially just future. Which is why “Pink Lloyd’s goal is not to protect America but indoctrinate all America’s troops in Black Lives Matter hate white people and hate America propaganda.
Last week, word emerged from the White House that Biden’s own staff can’t stand to listen to him. It’s not that they don’t agree with his policies (heck—they probably crafted them). Instead, it’s that he’s such a verbal loose cannon that they shudder when they hear him speak off the cuff. Yesterday (9/13), the White House staffers paying attention to his answers about western wildfires were so worried about where his mouth was taking him that they pulled the plug on him in mid-sentence. Last Tuesday (9/07) a Politico story explained that Biden’s staff constantly worries about Mr. Big Mouth in the White House. It appears that everyone in Biden's orbit is begging him to keep his mouth shut and be the good little puppet they need.
The Hani people in the mountains of Yunnan have been carving out rice terraces on dozens of steep mountainsides for over a dozen centuries. After the late fall harvest, in winter they flood the terraces in preparation for spring planting. At sunrise and sunset, the light reflecting off them creates a scene of phantasmagorical surrealism. Unknowingly, the Hani have created one of humanity’s most magnificent works of natural art the world has ever seen. What you see here is only one of hundreds of terraced areas. It is a sight beyond belief. Glimpses of Our Breathtaking World #156 Photo ©Jack Wheeler)
On display in the National Museum of Congo in Brazzaville: “Ancient Money.” I took the picture because this is the money that made us human 90,000 years ago. They are tiny Nassarius gibbosulus estuarine snail shells too small for food, perforated with small holes to string on a necklace, used as money “before the establishment of the CFA” as the sign says, the Central Africa Franc in 1945. These are the same species of shell that was the first jewelry in history unearthed at seashore sites in Morocco and hundreds of miles inland in Algeria some 90kya (thousand years ago) – meaning they were traded. For the first time in history, a species began to exchange things between unrelated unmarried individuals to share, swap, barter and trade, and over great distances. Other animals do not barter. This, maintains science author Matt Ridley, is what made us distinctly human, enabling us to cooperate with other groups or tribes, to innovate, to evolve ever more complex cultures. This little shell, used as money, is the founding of human culture. And after 90 millennia, it was still in use in Africa until 75 years ago!

They’re selling like hotcakes, folks! We’ve gone from FTC to FJB! “FTC” was our code in the Reagan White House for what the press called The Reagan Doctrine strategy for getting rid of the Soviet Union: F the Commies. Today the code is FJB for getting rid of the Dirtbag Impostor infesting the White House. Actually, no code is needed for these times – everything is spelled out including the F-word. Google “F*** Joe Biden” – spell it out – and you’ll get 14,600,000 hits. Go to Images and you’ll see an amazing array of flags, posters, banners, coffee cups, t-shirts, etc. proudly and fully announcing it. This weekend at college football games around the country, “F*** Joe Biden” was such a popular chant by massive mask-free crowds in the stadiums it made national news:
As a college professor for over 35 years, I’ve gotten to know three generations of students: Gen Y (born between 1965 and 1980), the Millennials (1981-1996), and now Gen Z (1997-2012). And because I teach rhetoric, I’ve read thousands of their papers, providing substantial insight into the way they think. Given what I observed among my Millennial college students, today’s post-rational, fact-free culture, with its toxic mix of ignorance, arrogance, and utter cluelessness (think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) was inevitable. We should not, however, despair, remembering that everything is cyclical. The Millennials will not necessarily have the last word. This may be their time in the sun, their opportunity to tear down our civilization temporarily unimpeded, but that moment (as always) is fleeting. There is another generation of bright young people—Gen Z—following right on their heels and therein may lie our temporal salvation
November 17, 1976. When I wrote my book “The Adventurer’s Guide,” it was a fantasy of mine to go on the Tonight Show and have Johnny Carson hold a “tsantsa,” a human shrunken head – as a book chapter was “How To Live With Headhunters.” As you can see, that fantasy came true. I still can’t believe how relaxed I was in the studio photo. That’s because Carson had a magical ability to put a guest like me, no professional performer, at ease. The cameras and lights, the audience, millions watching on TV all went away. It was just me talking to this friendly fellow with no one around. An amazing experience. Some dreams can really happen!

More accurately, the Biden Regime. Since 12 Noon EDT last January 20, there has not been a legitimate presidential administration in Washington, and every day since has proven its illegitimacy. Yesterday (9/09) in TTP, Roger Simon puzzled over The Mystery of California. Today, on the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the HFR puzzles over The Mystery of America. Roger is mystified how the most beautiful piece of real estate arguably in the entire globe turned into rubbish heap. Now the question becomes – will Americans do the same to their country or not? Another way to ask the same question: When do we reach Peak Enough? The tipping point, the trip wire, the last straw? How much more fascist, illegal, unconstitutional ruination of our country can Americans stand before they pull the trigger on it all?
Yesterday (9/10), Mr. Biden delivered the most insulting, contemptuous, and divisive speech by a president in U.S. history. As Biden crudely lectured and indicted the unvaxxed, he is importing hundreds of thousands of unvetted, unvaccinated, untested migrants from all over the world at the southern border and now from Afghanistan as well. What gives? Is he importing a replacement population by design while trying to kill off those of us who are native-born Americans with vaccines that not only do not work, but for many have dire side-effects such as death, injury, and illness. Could this all be part of the globalists' Great Reset? Probably. It all feels like part of someone's grand plan.
