Anti-togetherness: The Virtues of Disunity

We spend our time with people of our own culture. Jews flock together. We have Chinatown, Little Saigon, Little Italy. Good ol’ boys and Boston Brahmins do not party  together.

A Truth Not Welcome: People do not like being with those different from themselves . Sometimes, briefly, we find it interesting, as in traveling, but for extended periods, no. This distaste pervades society, often unnoticed, with consequences. 

Instances of untogetherness:

People cluster by intelligence. With high consistency, we choose mates of intelligence close to our own. Likewise with friends: If you have an IQ of 100, or 150, you are unlikely to have friends of 150, or 100. Bright people join Mensa not from snobbery but because they want to be around people like themselves. On the internet this takes the form of distributed cognitive stratification in which people from around the globe congregate by intelligence.

A woman I knew while living in the Heart of Darkness once said, “In Washington, you assume that everyone is in the ninety-ninth percentile.” She herself was, and her friends were chemists, high-end journalists, authors, and so on.  She meant her remark as shorthand for a common sort of clustering.

Shock Video: Trump Supporter Mows Down 'Dreamers' In Soros-Funded Ad

An immigrants rights group linked to globalist George Soros has released a political television ad targeting conservatives and libertarians by labeling them white supremacists.

The ad, paid for by the Soros-linked group Latino Victory Project, attacks Virginia GOP gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie and urges voters to “reject hate” when they go to the polls next week.

Kudlow: Best Economy We’ve Had in 10 Years

The economy is now at its best in a decade, according to economist and CNBC regular Larry Kudlow.

“The business side of the economy, the supply side, is doing very well,” Kudlow said Sunday on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable.”

“It’s the best showing we’ve seen — I don’t know, probably in over 10 years,” he added. “It’s as though businesses are sniffing out tax cuts, and they’re starting to pull the trigger on some investments. And that, of course, will lead to higher wages. I like that a lot because that’s been the worst area of the economy, business investments, and I think the stock market loves it.”

The Second Amendment Is A Test

There is no estimation of the lives saved by the Second Amendment, not just in deterring crime and criminals, but also in deterring the government from its worst temptations. As Mike Vanderboegh detailed in The Vanderboegh Tapes currently available on Vimeo, when he talked to a federal agent many years later, the agent told him that after the assault weapons ban was passed, before it became law and four million semi-automatic rifles were sold (more than had been sold in the previous twenty years) the agent admitted that it rattled them. Because the feds understood that people weren't buying all those guns to turn them in after the ban went into effect, they were forced to reconsider the next step which was to confiscate those weapons.

It's not that the media doesn't understand this, it is because they are pushing a narrative that comports with their collectivist leanings. They want the government to be in control of everything, either because they see themselves as somehow benefiting from the collective, or because they are immune to history and fact-blind to statistics. This is true even when those statistics are produced by the Center for Disease Control. They force the belief that a communist/collectivist future is somehow more humane. There is no point arguing that this is false and easily dispelled by history, because they are communists. In a lot of ways, they want revenge on history, if you can fathom that.

Judge Directs Military To Accept ‘Transgender’ Recruits


 Even if they were females they certainly wouldn't get any attention from the opposite sex. :)

A judge says she has the authority to countermand the Commander in Chief’s July decision to reject transgender applicants for military service, highlighting the judiciary’s continued efforts to seize political power from legislators and President Donald Trump.


The claim was made October 30, when Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia denounced Trump’s ‘Presidential Memorandum’ ending President Barack Obama’s policy of recruiting people who think they are members of the opposite sex.

She insisted that Trump’s policy be blocked pending a full trial:

The Court will preliminarily enjoin Defendants from enforcing the following directives of the [Trump] Presidential Memorandum, referred to by the Court as the Accession and Retention Directives:

I am directing the Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary of Homeland Security with respect to the U.S. Coast Guard, to return to the longstanding policy and practice on military service by transgender individuals that was in place prior to June 2016 until such time as a sufficient basis exists upon which to conclude that terminating that policy and practice would not have the negative effects discussed above.

French High Court Orders Removal of Cross Above Statue of Pope John Paul II


The French administrative court has ordered the removal of a cross from a monument to Saint John Paul II in a public square in the northwest of France, saying it violates the secular nature of the state.

Italian media noted the irony of the ruling, remarking that the cross-removal is not taking place “in Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State in Syria, but in Brittany, in the heart of Western Europe.”

The Conseil d’Etat, France’s highest administrative court, ruled last week that the statue of the Polish Pope in PloĆ«rmel, Brittany, could remain but the large cross above the monument must be eliminated.

“Since the cross is a religious sign or emblem within the meaning of Article 28 of the Law of 9 December 1905 and its installation by the municipality does not fall into any of the exceptions provided by this article, its presence in a public location is contrary to this law,” argued the French court.

The Antebellum South in the Reformation Tradition


On October 31, while many parents whisk their little ones from house to house in the pursuit of temporal tasty treats, a large portion of Christendom will be observing the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a movement which arguably changed the very course of Western Civilization up through the present. Many Protestant denominations, seminaries, churches, and para-church organizations are sponsoring trips and teachings, hosting conferences and conviviality in recognition of the great Solas that inspired the Reformers to separate from the Roman Catholic Church. If one were to attend an average American evangelical service on any given Sunday during the month of October, one would likely hear a sermon on one or more of the five Solas: Sola scriptura (“Scripture alone”), Sola fide (“faith alone”), Sola gratia (“grace alone”) Solo Christo (“Christ alone”), Soli Deo gloria (“glory to God alone”).

The common narrative usually goes something like this:

Trey Gowdy: Dems $10 million payment for what they’re labeling ‘opposition research,’ is akin to money laundering.


Republicans in Congress are hinting that they want former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former head of the DNC, to answer questions about the Democrat party funding of an infamous Russia/Trump dossier.

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Trey Gowdy, went so far as to call the DNC’s near $10 million payment for what they’re labeling ‘opposition research,’ is akin to money laundering.

“I’m not an election law expert, but the good news is you don’t have to be,” Gowdy said, “to understand the absurdity of believing that you can launder all of your campaign money by just hiring a law firm.”

“I’m interested in that,” he added.

Trump asks how Democrats don't know who approved millions to Fusion GPS funder

President Trump said on Twitter,

President Trump criticized Democratic leaders on Monday for not being able to name the Republican who reportedly approved millions of dollars in funding that was given to Fusion GPS, which later created a dossier on Trump thanks to funding from Democrats.

"Report out that Obama Campaign paid $972,000 to Fusion GPS. The firm also got $12,400,000 (really?) from DNC. Nobody knows who OK'd?" Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Kevin Spacey Flew on 'Lolita Express' With Bill Clinton

Records show that alleged child molester Kevin Spacey flew on the infamous ‘Lolita Express’ – the private jet owned by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein – along with former President Bill Clinton.

The revelation has resurfaced in the aftermath of claims by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was a 14-year-old boy after a party at Spacey’s apartment in 1986 when Spacey, then 24, picked up Rapp, placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him.

Spacey subsequently apologized for the incident, but deflected by making the story about how he was now living as a gay man.

Spain on a knife's edge as Madrid seizes control of rebel Catalonia

Via Billy

Observers warned of trouble ahead, with Catalan officials and public servants likely to defy orders from caretaker envoys sent by the central government.
"Tensions are likely to rise significantly over the coming days," suggested Teneo Intelligence, a risk analysis group.

Spain was plunged into crisis Friday as Madrid seized power from independence-seeking Catalonia, the first curtailment of regional autonomy since the brutal dictatorship of Francisco Franco.

After regional lawmakers voted to declare a Catalan "republic", Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy moved swiftly to dissolve the rebel government and parliament, and called December 21 elections to replace them.

 Next PATCON should be somewhere around the first weekend in *June 2018.

*May 30 to June 4.


North Carolina Patriots Convention was held between the 4th and 8th of October this year and while the attendance for Saturday’s lectures and demos was smaller than usual it was still a good group with lively discussions. 


The presentation on Disaster Communications covered a lot of material and was directed towards the efforts made by the ARRL and the American Red Cross to establish temporary communications in hurricane stricken Puerto Rico. A combination of VHF radios and HF radios in digital mode with computers running WinLink software is handling around one million messages per week.

Hungary Orders Spies to Target Soros ‘Empire’

Via Billy

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban renewed his assault on George Soros, instructing his intelligence services to map what he described as the networks run by the billionaire financier’s “empire” targeting his country.

Intelligence agencies will help evaluate what he sees as efforts by Soros to get Hungary punished by EU institutions pursuing a “mixed-population” continent, Orban said in an interview with Kossuth Radio on Friday.

Orban, who is the favorite to win next year’s parliamentary elections, said Europe is set to be split between a “migrant-free zone” and those in the west who refuse calls to “haul” undocumented migrants away.

Update: Tony Podesta is stepping down from the Podesta Group in yet another sign of trouble for Democrats.

 Rumors swirled over the weekend that special counsel Robert Mueller would charge someone in connection with his investigation into Russian election interference. News broke this morning that, not surprisingly, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort is the man charged.

Manafort, along with his business partner Rick Gates, were ordered to turn themselves in to federal authorities to be indicted on 12 charges including conspiracy against the United States, failure to register as working for a foreign agent, money laundering, false and misleading statements and seven counts for failure to register foreign-held bank and financial accounts.

CUNY Prof: 'The White-Nuclear Family Is One Of The Most Powerful Forces Supporting White Supremacy

If you're "reproducing white children" you're "part of the problem," so says critical social psychology professor Jessie Daniels of the Graduate Center at the City University of New York and Hunter College.

The "White Lies" author said last week on Twitter: "I mean, if you're a white person who says they're engaged in dismantling white supremacy, but + you're forming a white family + reproducing white children that 'you want the best for' - how is that helping + not part of the problem?"

The Mother of All Scandals

Via Billy

It appears he has entrapped them all in this scandal called Uranium One.   The FBI and the Deep-State.  James Comey.  Eric Holder.  Loretta Lynch.  The Clintons.  Barrack Obama.  The leftist news media.  Real collusion, with a real crime.

There is an answer to Hillary’s question, “What Happened?”

And yes, it should be considered a dumb question rather than a book title.  But the short answer to her question is:  She fooled almost the entire left, for over two decades.  Oh wait, that was a book title, not a question.

And therein lies her biggest problem.  She’s not really asking the question as she should be, she’s not reflecting.  Instead, she’s wagging a finger and blaming everyone else for her loss.

Back to the Clintons fooling the left.  Let’s start counting the ways.  She was not just smart, she was the smartest woman ever.  She was fully competent and capable in everything.  She fought bravely for all the right issues.  She was more qualified to be President than anyone who preceded her.  She was, and is, the bright moral compass pointing the way forward to the left (who they believe should be all of us).  She was the Yin to her husband’s Yang.  They were the best power couple ever, a beacon of truth shining in the darkness.

Except they weren’t.  She has proved that over time, and her book tour is confirming it.
