Obligatory Preamble and Disclaimer For the Record




Whether you despised the presidency of Donald Trump, or despise the current presidency of Uncle Joe Biden, you’ll no doubt love this quote, since it confirms your own unexamined biases and of course only applies to your political opponents. Kinda reminds The Infidel of that wacky 2006 movie Idiocracy:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
       —H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)




Live Not By Lies

In 1974 when Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was officially exiled from the Soviet Union, he released an essay that has since spread world-wide and become very well known entitled LIVE NOT BY LIES. Throughout all of history people, institutions, and governments with the slightest bit of power in their society have shown they will lie to the general population any time it serves their purpose. Remember, the first impulse of power is to retain power. Continuing the never-ending job of exposing the real purveyors of “disinformation” noted in REBEL ALLIANCE TRANSMISSION DATE 2022-02-06, here is another short required-viewing video to disturb you: LYING LIARS WILL ALWAYS LIE




Julius Caesar Visits the Local School Board Meeting

What happens when Julius Caesar (100 BC — 44 BC) arises from the dead after 2,000 years and in 2023 appears in Concord, New Hampshire before the school board that had jurisdiction over his children?




The White Pill

“Taking the red pill” and declining the blue pill has become an over-used meme over the past couple decades, due to the enormous popularity of the 1999 movie The Matrix. It does represent a real-world situation though; you might even say a conversion that many people go through when they finally wake up (which is very different from being “woke”) and see reality—politically, socially, culturally—for what it really is. If you’re not afraid to visit the less-inhabited corners of the Internet and YouTube (and the Infidel encourages you to), you’re also aware of the dreaded Black Pill. And now the Infidel presents to you the White Pill.

When someone describes himself as an anarchist, many if not most people have an immediate reaction of “Oh, so there shouldn’t be any laws? Then the law of the jungle would rule and how would that work out for you?” Well, no, not really; you won’t find too many humans on planet Earth that really believe there shouldn’t be any laws.

Michael Malice is a self-described anarchist that articulates his thoughts and beliefs very well and is fairly well-known online. He is obviously well-read and well-informed on both the historical debates and arguments over political systems, and on current events that reflect those past historical debates. He recently appeared on the Jimmy Dore podcast, and people of planet Earth, the Infidel highly recommends watching the whole 50 minutes on YOUTUBE or, if YouTube removes it, on RUMBLE. Earthlings, you need to recognize and see beyond the extreme division intentionally being pushed by governments and mainstream media that want you to think if only the Democrats, or the Republicans, or left-wingers, or right-wingers, or [insert whatever you want here] had more power and control in Washington D.C., things would be a lot better. Go read Michael Malice’s great new book, THE WHITE PILL.




The Slap Heard ’Round the World

Well, everyone else and their brother, and their cousin, has commented about Will Smith and the Oscars debacle, so The Infidel may as well wade in. But since it’s all been said already, I’ll link to two online comments that said it all quite well.

The Infidel is not on any so-called “social media.” (Which is a misnomer; it should be referred to as “anti-social media.”) I do not follow Hollywood celebrity culture, but being a widely-read and well-informed individual, I was aware of Jada Pinkett Smith’s “entanglement,” as she called it, with some guy young enough to be her son, and her insane choice to drag her husband into the national spotlight and broadcast it to the world. Whether she gave it any serious thought or not is another matter, but she must have known on some level that it would be embarrassing, demeaning, and emasculating to Will. From the moment I saw the Oscars video online, I knew it was not about any real anger towards Chris Rock, but Will Smith’s surpressed rage finally boiling over until he lost control in a very public situation and did something that only a high school kid could think would show the world he was “a real man.” He was finally displaying his rage at his wife, at his inability to express that rage to her (or anyone else), and at himself for being such a simp/wimp/cuck. And to the few who defended Smith because he was just “defending his wife,” The Infidel wouldn’t waste his breath arguing with them; they are simply delusional. Like Will Smith.

This guy who goes by “huMAN” on YouTube has been posting commentary since 2016, and The Infidel has appreciated and agreed with many, many of his videos. He got directly to the heart of the Will Smith matter in THIS VIDEO.

Here is another rational, very perceptive COMMENT FROM CANDACE OWENS on the real problems in relationships and American society exposed by the Oscars incident.




...and if you don’t have 666 stamped on your forehead, you can’t vote...

Well, maybe not just yet. They might wait till next year on that one. But the unbelievable control over your life that a digital currency would enable is the stuff of nightmares. JUSTIN HASKIN’S ARTICLE in The Hill about federal plans for a digital currency says this in the last paragraph:

“It’s clear that the Biden administration and Fed are working together to create a controllable, traceable, programmable digital currency. And if they are successful, life in America might never be the same.”




George Orwell Is Saying “I told you so!” From the Grave

On Feb. 7, 2022, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a National Terrorism Advisory Bulletin that outlined what any rational person could only characterize as their agenda to fight “thought crimes.” It states:

“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM).”

Yeah right, because U.S. citizens openly disagreeing with government policies online are far more dangerous to national security than someone flying a passenger jet into a tall building. They must be serious because they even have an acronym for it now—MDM. Probably monitoring InfidelNotions.com too.

Totalitarians will never stop abusing power and CRIMINALIZING DISSENT.




Magical Thinking

How is it possible for politicians of either party to say with a straight face that a multitrillion dollar federal spending bill “costs zero dollars”? How do they claim that tax cuts “pay for themselves”? The total national debt of the United States is now over $30 trillion, which no human can realistically even imagine in their mind.

There’s this federal agency called the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), created in 1974 in an attempt to “...establish new procedures and processes to force more transparency and discipline into the federal budget process.” When created, it was “...charged with evaluating the budgetary and economic impact of legislation before Congress and providing a consensus cost estimate that could be trusted by both parties.” By all accounts it does a decent job, but those wiley ol’ politicians who ride into D.C. on donkeys and elephants have developed all manner of strategies and work-arounds to game the system.

       “This budgetary sleight of hand is how presidents and Congress have repeatedly passed laws that turned out to be much more expensive than advertised. President George W. Bush gamed the CBO scoring process to pass his 2001 tax bill and create Medicare Advantage in 2003. President Obama did it to pass his Affordable Care Act in 2010. President Trump did it to pass his 2017 tax bill.
       “One of the main reasons Senator Joe Manchin cited for rejecting President Biden’s Build Back Better (BBB) bill was its reliance on ‘shell games and budget gimmicks’ that he said were making it appear half as expensive as it really was.”

The Infidel is a complete pessimist on government bugetary matters and the national debt. The madness will NEVER STOP. Even though legitimate, good organizations like the COMMITTEE FOR A RESPONSIBLE FEDERAL BUDGET do all they can to raise public awareness and nudge congress toward sanity.




Over twenty-five years ago an article entitled LOVING YOUR COUNTRY AND HATING YOUR GOVERNMENT by Jacob Hornberger appeared in a small monthly publication called Future of Freedom. Hornberger is the founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation, a libertarian organization that promotes individual liberty, free markets, private property, and limited government. The Infidel recently read this article again, and found that it is even more relevant today than it was twenty-five years ago.





Reality has moved so far beyond parody that The Infidel can no longer find any words in the English language to say when confronted with alien logic from another universe. If you are crazy enough, you will someday rule the world, because normal people just want to live their lives in peace, but crazy people will go to any extreme to rule over normal people. This really sounds like a Monty Python skit, but this is happening at a real university in England:

       Lecturers at a leading university are being given guidance on neopronouns, which include emoji labels and catgender, where someone identifies as a feline. The University of Bristol has provided guidance for its staff on “using pronouns at work,” urging them to declare in verbal introductions and e-mail signatures whether they use he/him, she/her or they/them, to support transgender students.
       But unlike myriad pronoun manuals on other campuses, Bristol lecturers are also directed to neopronouns which include “emojiself pronouns,” where colourful digital icons commonplace on social media are used to represent gender in written and spoken conversation....
       Another section explains how noun-self pronouns are used by “xenic” individuals whose gender does not fit within “the Western human binary of gender alignments.” The webpage adds: “For example, someone who is catgender may use nya/nyan pronouns.”
       Catgender, it says, is someone who “strongly identifies” with cats or other felines and those who “may experience delusions relating to being a cat or other feline.” The word nyan is Japanese for “meow.”

Male, female, feline... Bristol University’s GUIDE TO NEOPRONOUNS.




You Can’t Say That If You Wear Levi’s

This story is a repeat of many other similar ones over the past couple decades in the history of the long slide to totalitarianism. It’s been many years now since a time when you could freely express an opinion contrary to the liberal hive-mind’s groupthink orthodoxy in universities or large corporations. The First Amendment, free speech and open debate are the left’s kryptonite.

What makes this story a little unusual is that the protagonist, Jennifer Sey, decided to go public with her story rather than accept a million dollar severance package. She knew she would have to sign a nondisclosure agreement that would prevent her from speaking about her experiences and exit from the Levi Strauss company. Instead, she resigned and published her story on Bari Weiss’ Substack newsletter The Free Press. (Bari Weiss is herself well-known for leaving her position with the New York Times in 2020 over similar concerns.)

Here is Jennifer Sey’s PERSONAL STORY, and a news article from MSNBC about HER DEPARTURE from Levi Strauss & Co.





It’s been almost 250 years since King George made the mistake of taxing tea in the Colonies, and look where it got him. But like that old French saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Or like Pete Townshend and The Who said, meet the new boss, same as the old boss. So we replaced a monarchy with a nanny state.

In 48 states you pull into a gas station, get out, pump your gas and pay, and drive off. But in 2 states—New Jersey and Oregon—by law a gas station attendant has to pump your gas for you. Because, you know it’s really dangerous and requires a lot of skill and extensive training. And Big Brother can’t allow you to do such things for yourself. This is the kind of craziness that eventually turns left-wing socialists into anti-government libertarians. But there’s hope:

Oregon Might Let People PUMP THEIR OWN GAS

The Infidel is not sure Oregon should go down this slippery slope. What’s next? For sure some radical state senator will introduce a bill to allow Oregonians to cross the street by themselves.




Are We Alone In the Universe?

The Fermi Paradox:

•  There are billions of stars in the Milky Way similar to the Sun.
•  There is a high probability that some of these stars have Earth-like planets in a planetary habitable zone.
•  Many of these stars and their planets are much older than the Sun. If the Earth is typical, some may have developed intelligent life long ago.
•  Some of these civilizations may have developed interstellar travel, which we are just now investigating.
•  Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the Milky Way galaxy could be crossed completely in a few million years.
•  Many of the stars similar to the Sun are billions of years older, so Earth should have already been visited by extraterrestrial civilizations, or at least their probes.
•  However, there is no convincing evidence that this has happened.

The Impossible Earth HYPOTHESIS




How the Left Was Lost

Twenty years ago Bill Maher hosted a popular television program called Politically Incorrect, which has turned out to be quite prescient given the past two decades of ever-increasing polarization in American politics and society.

Maher is one of several well-known people in the public eye who used to be considered as reliably on the left side of the political spectrum, but today are attacked by their comrades for abandoning their principles and grifting for the right. The Infidel finds it rather humorous how many of these people have been moved to publicly explain the same thing—that they haven’t changed or moved to the right, it’s the left that has changed and been taken over by their fringe elements. (Since The Infidel is an equal-opportunity offender, let us stipulate that it appears the right has also been taken over by their fringe elements.)

Watch Bill Maher explain the DEATH OF COMMON SENSE.




At the Zoo

Someone told me it's all happening at the zoo
I do believe it, I do believe it's true

It's a light and tumble journey from the East side to the park
Just a fine and fancy ramble to the zoo
But you can take a cross-town bus if it's raining or it's cold
And the animals will love it if you do

Something tells me it's all happening at the zoo
I do believe it, I do believe it's true

The monkeys stand for honesty, giraffes are insincere
And the elephants are kindly but they're dumb
Orangutans are skeptical of changes in their cages
And the zoo keeper is very fond of rum
Zebras are reactionaries, antelopes are missionaries
Pigeons plot in secrecy and hamsters turn on frequently
What a gas, you got to come and see at the zoo
At the zoo
At the zoo
At the zoo...

      —Simon & Garfunkel

My fellow Americans, let us take a much-needed break from the Covid-19 madness and visit the zoo, where animals don’t care whether your Senator has a (D) or an (R) after their name, or whether you wear a mask to Walmart or not.

In October of last year, Rosalie the cheetah gave birth to five cubs at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia. For awhile there was an active web cam in their dens so the public could see them from anywhere in the world. The web cam is no longer active, but you can still see lots of PICTURES AND UPDATES ON THE CUBS.




The Quest for Cosmic Justice

The Infidel has long been of the opinion that Thomas Sowell is one of the smartest people in the United States. Reading several of his many books should convince you of that too. This SHORT VIDEO is a talk he gave, an overview of the ideas in his book THE QUEST FOR COSMIC JUSTICE. How do “traditional” justice and “cosmic” justice (or, “social” justice) differ? How is it that social engineers playing God get “equality” and “equity” so confused?




Follow the Money

The Infidel expects all the wide-spread hypocrisy from politicians, no matter which party they belong to. But this kind of brazen, open, partisan, corrupt money-grubbing collusion between Big Government and Big Pharma is beyond the pale. Anyone who reads/listens/watches the news from somewhere other than the alphabet networks (and from sources outside the U.S.) must by now have serious questions about the changing narratives from the CDC and Lord Fauci on the efficacy of vaccines/masks/lockdowns. And this has nothing to do with whether you are personally pro- or anti-vaccine. Why the absolutely insane push to force EVERYONE to take the jab, as they say in Australia? Now it’s even children under six. You would almost think that someone must be making money off the vaccines, huh?

Well, yeah. As a wise man once said, “Follow the MONEY.”




Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

      “The battle is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. We have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat, but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged; their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat...let it come!
      “It is in vain to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

The Honk Heard ’Round the World
(with apologies to Patrick Henry)

      “The power is not held by politicians alone; it accrues to the informed, the vigilant, the brave. We have no real choice in the matter. If we were cowardly enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the battle. There is no retreat but in misinformation and the hell of voluntary servitude! Yet the celestial sounds of our freedom waft down upon us from the north; the honking may be heard on the highways of Ontario! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat...let it come!
      “It is useless to debate the matter. Bureaucrats may cry, ‘Vaccines! Vaccines!’ but they bring no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps south from Canada will bless our ears with the honks of the brave! Our truckers are already in the streets of Ottawa! Why stand we here idle? What is it that Americans wish? Is our freedom to gather and to travel so lightly esteemed as to be purchased at the price of masks and mandates? May the heavens forbid it—I bow not to Lord Fauci! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

The Great Honkening

(Honk If You Love Freedom)

This is getting to be fun. The Infidel never thought those Canadian wussies up north had it in them. “Freedom Convoy 2022” started as a large group of truckers protesting the new Canadian vaccination requirements for cross-border travel. The convoy started from the west coast of Canada with many Canadians cheering them along the way. It ballooned to thousands of trucks, and after about 3,000 miles reached Ottawa, the Canadian capital. Now Joe Rogan is under SIEGE, Twitter is burning UP, GoFundMe tried to steal $9 MILLION from supporters of the truckers, Reddit forums are overflowing with COMMENTS, funny MEMES are proliferating like rabbits, websites are selling “The Great Honkening” T-SHIRTS, truck convoys are spreading around the WORLD, and now a Canadian judge has ordered the truckers to STOP HONKING!

We can only hope after Ottawa falls, they head south for Washington D.C.

Ten years from now you’ll be rummaging around in a back corner of your closet and pull out an old jacket and find a mask in the pocket. “Oh man, what a weird couple years that was!” you’ll chuckle to yourself. Then you’ll pick up your AK-47 and a machete and head out across the wastelands to forage for food, keeping to the shadows to avoid the roving gangs of cannibal raiders and zombie mutants.

Glenn Greenwald’s latest video posted on Rumble says: “To justify their efforts to pressure Spotify to remove Joe Rogan, employees of media corporations claim to be deeply concerned by the “disinformation” he is spreading. Yet nobody spreads disinformation more aggressively, destructively or recklessly than these media corporations, strongly suggesting some different motive in wanting Rogan silenced.”

And so my fellow Americans, The Infidel wishes that everyone who still gets most of their “news” from one of the alphabet networks could be required to watch this video:

The Media Outlets Demanding Joe Rogan’s Removal

The first comment posted in response to the above video was quite telling:

“I have been a lifelong liberal Democrat who always embraced free speech, abhorred censorship and welcomed open dialogue. I never imagined I would live to watch my party embrace all of these principles from the playbook of Marxists. This support of looters, support for cancel culture and advocating censoring differing opinions is beyond anything I would support. The sad fact that corporations, politicians and big tech have embraced this is scary.”




The Current Troubles have lead many astray. Mentally, physically, emotionally, and certainly politically. False idols and gods abound, and just as in the Days of the Ancients, many are the weak who follow and worship them. In the U.S., the Chief Idol and God-Pretender, Lord Fauci, smugly makes the rounds of the talk shows to have his ring kissed and promote his latest constantly changing Big Lie. Fortunately Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has done the extensive research necessary and published a best-seller that definitively exposes the God-Pretender’s feet of clay. Consider this book an addition to the world-famous and much celebrated REQUIRED READING LIST FOR THE HUMAN RACE stored in the Library at 101Bananas.com. Buy this book, read it, and go and sin no more:

and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health.




Paying the arsonist for helping PUT OUT THE FIRE.




Her Degree Was In Law, Not Math

The left-wing insanity is so out in the open it’s laughable. And very scary that these are the people in power. Sonia Sotomayor, a Supreme Court Justice who sits in judgment on issues of extreme importance that impact all Americans, publicly displayed her profound ignorance. Is it any wonder she voted to uphold Uncle Joe’s mandates? (But thankfully was out-voted.) The Infidel thinks that deep in her addled brain, she actually really honestly truly definitely believes there are 100,000 children in hospitals with Covid, rather than less than 5,000. The bubble she lives in only has two TV channels, the left-wing Marxist megaphones CNN and MSNBC, and two newspapers, the Democrat party rags the New York Times and the Washington Post. She probably doesn’t know how to use that newfangled Inter-Web thingie to confirm information. So yeah, she probably REALLY BELIEVED THAT.




Kiss Her Hiney

When Bette Midler described West Virginians as “poor, illiterate and and strung out,” West Virginia Governor Jim Justice brought his dog in to work and told her WHAT SHE COULD DO.




When The Infidel discovered Russell Brand’s YouTube channel, the only thing he knew about him was that he’s the ex-husband of Katy Perry. Brand has had an interesting and erratic life if you check his entry in Wikipedia. He’s apparently more stable and focused now than he was in his proverbial younger, wilder days. If you haven’t seen any of his videos yet, you will be surprised at his intelligent, articulate, thoughtful—and funny—commentary on current events. The Infidel tries to watch every one he posts, and he’s very active on YouTube, posting at least several times a week. His channel is growing rapidly and fast approaching the 5 million subscriber mark.

The psychotic madness must stop.
The lying must stop.
The cover-ups and denials must stop.
The absolute corruption must stop.
Educate yourself people.
It’s been two years already.

If you really think your government and its thousand bureaucratic agencies (especially the CDC, NIH, FDA) have your best interests at heart, you are either extremely dumb or ill informed, or you have let yourself become so politicized that you are willing to embrace evil and deny 2 + 2 = 4 because your favored politician tells you it equals 5. That way you “win” and your political opponents “lose.” (In the dream world you live in.) The corruption and collusion of Big Pharma and Big Government and Big Tech helped along by billionaires like Bill Gates and George Soros has destroyed what used to be the United States of America.

Everyone in America should be required to reserve 5 hours of your time to watch this roundtable COVID-19 MEDICAL DISCUSSION convened by Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. Do not be put off by the 5-hour run time; it will be the most interesting and informative 5 hours of your life in a long time. It is absolutely compulsory viewing. Watch it on your weekend. The Infidel defies anyone to carefully watch and pay attention to the whole 5 hours of the discussion and not be continually stunned at the information you learn that you have never heard on the 6 o’clock news. No one can be exposed to this information and not conclude that there is massive corruption at the highest levels of both government and medicine. Go ahead, call it a conspiracy theory.


(Note that the video was originally a live-streamed event, so there’s initially a long period of just a blank screen. Click forward to the 40-minute mark where the discussion starts.)




How Do They Get Away With It?

It is always hidden in PLAIN SIGHT.




Proving that the right can be just as stupid as the left, a school board in McMinn County, Tennessee, recently voted to ban a book which had been part of their eighth-grade curriculum. It seems to The Infidel that school boards of all political persuasions, whether in the much-publicized Loudoun County, Virginia, or in McMinn County, Tennessee, are just a little too enamored with their tiny bit of power to influence their tiny bit of reality. And in this case, they are extremely poor judges of literary quality or acceptability for teenagers.

When Maus, by Art Spiegelman, came out about 30 years ago, The Infidel bought the hardcover, 2-volume slipcased edition and read it right away. Maus is a really great, and truly unique book that tells the terrible story of the author’s family in Nazi death camps during the Holocaust in World War II. It also tells of the suicide years later of Spiegelman’s mother. It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992.

The Infidel recognized at the time Spiegelman’s brilliant insight in choosing to tell such an overwhelming, unimaginable story in the only way he could come to terms with it: in cartoon form as a graphic novel. In Maus, Jews are drawn as mice and Nazis are predator cats. The graphic novel form makes it quite effective and moving, and more accessible for younger readers.

The publicity over the banning, as always happens, caused Maus to immediately sell out and hit the best-seller lists a second time after 30 years. Read some of the REVIEWS ON AMAZON or anywhere else and get on the waiting list for a copy from the next printing whenever it’s back in stock.




They Will Never Admit They Were Wrong

If you actually read various sources on the Internet, rather than just watch a half hour of nightly news from one of the alphabet networks, you would know by now that natural immunity is significantly more protective than getting vaccinated. Natural immunity meaning that you caught the Covid virus and recovered. You’d also know that Rachel “Mad Cow” Maddow, like a lot of the alphabet networks talking heads, will openly lie without hesitation. On March 29, 2021, the Mad Cow screeched and screamed, swearing that the vaccine absolutely immunizes you from catching the virus and “stops the virus completely,” preventing further transmission. An outright lie, but they will never admit they were wrong.

A few months later, the Mad Cow and many others tried mightily to spread fake news about Oklahoma hospitals being overrun with patients overdosing on Ivermectin, the so-called “horse medicine” that the alphabet networks loved to ridicule. That fake story was just that—fake. But there were no apologies, because they will never admit they were wrong.

There’s Lord Fauci science, and then there’s real science. Here’s some real science:

Johns Hopkins Doctor Criticizes Vaccine Mandates, Stresses NATURAL IMMUNITY

CDC Study: Natural Immunity Provides Significantly More Protection Against Covid Than VACCINATION

Some hospitals have already fired nurses and other staff for refusing the vaccination. Just recently though, due to severe staff shortages, there are reports that some of those same hospitals are begging their nurses and staff who are sick with Covid to come in to work even when sick! Shouldn’t they be forced to hire back the fired ones who acquired natural immunity through an infection/recovery? That won’t happen, because they will never admit they were wrong.




“The rules are simple: they lie to us, we know they’re lying, they know we know they’re lying but they keep lying anyway, and we keep pretending to believe them.”
       —Elena Gorokhova, A Mountain of Crumbs, page 181

(This quote, or one very similar, is widely misattributed all over the Internet to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, but a bit of research confirms Gorokhova as the author.)




“Can freedom become a burden, too heavy for man to bear, something he tries to escape from?”
       —Erich Fromm, Escape From Freedom

“Nothing has ever been more insupportable for a man and a human society than freedom. Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born.”
      —Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov





“It’s Time For Us To Do What We Have Been Doing”
“They Need What They Need”

The Infidel is struck with the similarity of Vice-President Kamala Harris to the late great baseball manager CASEY STENGEL. Casey was famous for his rambling discourses with reporters and his inventive usage of language that became known as “Stengelese.” For example: “There comes a time in every man’s life and I’ve had plenty of them,” or, “I heard it couldn’t be done, but it don’t always work.”

Kamala Harris was asked by an NBC reporter whether it might be time for the administration to change strategies in coping with the Current Troubles. Her actual reply:

“It’s time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down....”

And she rambled on, but you get the picture. On another occasion a reporter asked about the current high rate of inflation. Her actual reply:

“We have to address the fact that we have got to deal with the fact that folks are paying for gas, paying for groceries, and are — need solutions to it. So let’s talk about that. Short-term solution includes what we need to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and said, ‘Hey, guys, no more five days a week, eight hours a day; 24/7, let’s move the products because people need their product — they need what they need.’ ”

Yeah, well, The Infidel would remind everyone that only when a chicken crosses the road is it truly on the other side.




That sinking feeling when reality is finally OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGED.




On January 11, 2022, during a speech in Georgia urging the passage of the voting bill Democrats are currently trying to pass, President Joe “Uncle Joe” Biden, as usual attempting to demonize all opposition, said:

“I ask every elected official in America: How do you want to be remembered? Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide. To defend our elections. To defend our democracy.”

QUESTION: What do George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis have in common with Joe Biden?

ANSWER: They were all Democrats.

The Infidel was immediately reminded of a great book, and a documentary film made from the book that he saw years ago: American History In Black and White. Among other topics on Black history, it goes into detail about the long history of Blacks in the Republican Party all the way back to Abraham Lincoln. A history modern Democrats don’t want to acknowledge and don’t want you, the general public, to even know about. Should be required reading/viewing in every American high school.






Before Gutenberg it must have been easy to be a hypocrite. Those in power could always claim they didn’t say that. Then came books—a permanent record (which is why at various times they have been burned). Then came daily newspapers, then television, then the Internet, where nothing you say or do that’s recorded or filmed ever disappears, despite the best efforts of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google to whitewash over anything they disagree with. The powerful still have the advantage of the public’s extremely short memory, but now anyone can do ten minutes of “research” on the Internet and find sound bites or video clips of everything anyone in the public eye has ever said publicly.

One of the most egregious hypocrites in recent memory is Lord Fauci. It’s irrelevant whether you are pro- or anti-vaccine, pro- or anti-mask, pro- or anti-mandates. If you examine the record honestly, you’ll conclude that the dude is untrustworthy, a liar, and a hypocrite. The Hill’s Kim Iversen has the right take on this:

History Of Flip Flops And Lies SHOULD FORCE RETIREMENT




“Authoritarianism in religion and science, let alone politics, is becoming increasingly accepted, not particularly because so many people explicitly believe in it but because they feel themselves individually powerless and anxious. So what else can one do...except follow the mass political leader...or follow the authority of customs, public opinion, and social expectations?”

David Webb is a journalist, columnist, Fox TV host, and hosts The David Webb Show that airs on SiriusXM radio. With tongue firmly in cheek, he recently said on Twitter: “Can’t believe we don’t have world peace after changing the name on pancake boxes and syrup bottles.” Here’s what he was referring to, the before & after of the great rebranding:

The Infidel is sure glad we got that fixed. World peace is just around the corner.




Not This Time

In a statement on the floor of Virginia’s House of Delegates, representative NICK FREITAS SAID THIS.
Give that guy a medal.




The U.S. Military has been in a serious decline for decades now. You can decide for yourself the ideologies mostly responsible for jellyfication of the spines of most generals and admirals. There are hundreds and hundreds of stories The Infidel could point you to. Here’s a couple:

Fired for Daring to Tell the Truth

Space Force Commander Removed After Saying Marxism Is INFILTRATING THE MILITARY.

The commander that was removed actually wrote a book detailing his warnings, which The Infidel immediately bought upon hearing about it. If Amazon hasn’t removed it yet, you can check it out here:

IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION: Marxism's Goal of Conquest
and the Unmaking of the American Military

by Matthew Lohmeier

Lowering the Standards

The problem of lowering standards to make it appear that the liberal fantasy of equality is actually true and that women can do anything a man can (no, they can’t) has been around since the late ’60s or early ’70s, and it’s gotten much, much worse since then:

And a follow-up article a week later:

And to sink you further into depression because Western civilization is doomed and there’s no hope, observe what kind of people Russia, the U.S., China, and Britain try to appeal to when recruiting for their military:

For the record, The Infidel is not against wearing masks, though as any informed person knows, the type of mask that 99% of the American public wears is useless against the Covid-19 virus. Depending on which dark corner of the Internet you peruse, you will read that widespread mask wearing decreases virus infection rates among the general population 0.1%, or 1%-2%, or 5%-10%, or in the really dark corners of the Internet inhabited by those who drank the kool-aid long ago, as much as 30%.

What The Infidel is against is just the insane rabid mad dog attitude of the uninformed woke left that everyone should be wearing a mask 24 hours a day, and the Karens that try to publicly enforce their mask-laws on everyone. As many others have remarked, wearing a mask in public has become the left’s MAGA hat. Here in the Free State of Florida, The Infidel has many times seen someone out on a nice day in the fresh air walking their dog on a shady street, no other human within a hundred yards, but they’re wearing a mask! And worse, The Infidel has seen people riding their bikes wearing a mask! (There are reasons why “Florida Man” long ago became a meme much derided on the Internet.)

In March 2020, Lord Fauci said we don’t need to be WEARING MASKS.

But today? Well, “It Doesn’t Have To MAKE SENSE.




Stephen Breyer, acknowledged by everyone as part of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court, has announced his retirement to take effect in July if his successor has been confirmed. Obviously, all of the Washington D.C. establishment is terrified that Republicans will take over the House and possibly the Senate in the upcoming elections in November, making it impossible to get their choice of a radical constitution-hating liberal confirmed to the Court. You better believe Breyer was heavily pressured to retire with enough time left before November to confirm his replacement. They didn’t want another Ruth Bader Ginsburg scenario.

Back in February 2020 at a debate in South Carolina, then-Presidential candidate Joe “Uncle Joe” Biden pledged that if elected he would nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. The Infidel says that’s the very definition of racism and sexism. There are many (too many) liberal, far-left, experienced judges sitting in the various Circuit Courts that “Uncle Joe” could nominate and a Democrat-controlled Senate would quickly confirm. But there’s a problem—they’re either white, or male. Doesn’t matter, because racism and sexism on the left is OK, it’s just racism and sexism on the evil right that’s the problem.

Benny Johnson noted recently on Twitter: “Hate to break it to you but the only black person serving on the Supreme Court today was personally attacked, defamed and slandered by Joe Biden before he voted AGAINST him.”

And he’s correct of course. Unfortunately for Black Americans, ideology trumps race for the left, so in October 1991 Biden (then a Senator from Delaware) voted against confirming Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. As a wise man has said many times, my, how times have changed.




There are lots of really good channels on YouTube, but Jonna Jinton’s has become one of The Infidel’s favorites. She lives with her husband Johan and dog Nanook in northern Sweden and makes artistic, beautiful, relaxing, contemplative, inspiring videos. Whether views of the northern lights over the forested mountains surrounding her, ice baths in a frozen lake, or melodious ancient Swedish herding call songs, they are always worth watching. One of her first videos to go viral, in March 2018, was a funny 45-second one: “SPRING IN SWEDEN.”

There are too many YouTube channels hosted by reality show wannabes who just carry around a camera and document their uninteresting lives, but Jonna’s is not one of those. The deep forest environment she lives in, the stunning scenery around her home and her excellent photographic and video editing skills put her far above most of the others. This type of personal life channel is generally not the type that The Infidel would be interested in—they can too easily slide into boring soap opera. But Jonna’s narration of her beautiful videos convey a deep appreciation of her natural surroundings and an innate joy of life and awe at the proverbial wonders of the universe that is delightfully calming. This short 2-minute video would be a good introduction: “WINTER’S LULLABY.” Or this 18-minute one: “PARALYZED BY THE MOUNTAINS.” Or this 24-minute one: “IN THE LAND OF THE GODS.” Or try a few minutes of a unique 2-hour video: “SINGING ICE.” Her channel’s home page: JONNA JINTON.




If you understand or if you don’t
If you believe or if you doubt
There’s a universal justice
And the eyes of truth
Are always watching you

The Infidel grows weary of hearing both the left and right, both Democrats and Republicans exaggerate claims of the disaster awaiting civilization if we continue down the road their opponents would lead us. The Infidel has of course also been accused of this exaggeration. The impulse of the screaming meanies on the extremes of both sides to leap to a comparison of their ideological opponents to “Nazis” grows tiresome. However, this is not to say we should be unconcerned about how easy it appears to be, given the right circumstances, for demagogues to lead the masses astray. Remember Henry David Thoreau’s assertion (revelation?) in Walden that “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

The careful, deep study of history can be an enlightening experience for anyone with an open and curious mind. If you really want a little insight into how millions of average “good” people can turn into Nazis, The Infidel recommends reading the well-known HANNAH ARENDT and these two not-as-well-known authors, among many others:

They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45
Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust




Anyone who thinks Covid-19 came from some bats flying around in a cave in China has the intellectual capacity of those bats, except the bats are smarter because they know how to navigate by echolocation. It was released, either accidentally or intentionally, from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. The overwhelming evidence is widely available:



New Internal Documents Reveal COVID ORIGINS DOWNPLAYED




The period of history around the American Revolution is endlessly fascinating. And no, there aren’t already too many books about it. So there is a new book on the Revolution by Joseph J. Ellis, THE CAUSE: THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND IT’S DISCONTENTS, 1773-1783. Ellis has an actual “fresh take” on the thinking of, and the influences on, those involved. From the book’s dust jacket:

Countering popular histories that romanticize the “Spirit of ’76,” Ellis demonstrates that the rebels fought under the mantle of “The Cause,” a mutable, conveniently ambiguous principle that afforded an umbrella under which different, and often conflicting, convictions and goals could coexist. Neither an American nation nor a viable government existed at the end of the war. In fact, one revolutionary legacy regarded the creation of such a nation, or any robust expression of government power, as the ultimate betrayal of The Cause. This legacy alone rendered any effective response to the twin tragedies of the founding—slavery and the Native American dilemma—problematic at best.




“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
       —George Orwell, 1984




The Big Lie





Although The Infidel thinks that political pundits and television talking heads using the term THE OVERTON WINDOW have gone a little overboard, the term’s meaning and actual origin are quite interesting.




Following on yesterday’s REBEL ALLIANCE TRANSMISSION, yet more evidence that whatever the topic, “....the poets have already been there....” Another example, a favorite of The Infidel’s long before the Current Troubles:

We Wear the Mask

We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be overwise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
      We wear the mask.
We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
      We wear the mask!
       —Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906)

A small selection of Dunbar’s poetry is HERE.




Somewhere in the misty past The Infidel remembers reading a phrase, something to the effect of “....wherever I go, I find the poets have already been there....” The Infidel can’t remember whether that was referring to the study of philosophy or psychology or sociology, literature or film studies, but the phrase stuck. Many great poets have been way ahead of their time. William Blake comes to mind, and perhaps also T.S. Eliot, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. Our Current Troubles constantly remind The Infidel of Robinson Jeffers (1887-1962), whose poetry many thought of as quite pessimistic. The Infidel prefers the term “realistic.” If you didn’t know better you would think Jeffers was alive today and alluding specifically to today’s modern disfunctional political climate:

That public men publish falsehoods
Is nothing new. That America must accept
Like the historical republics corruption and empire
Has been known for years.
Be angry at the sun for setting
If these things anger you.
       —from “Be Angry at the Sun”
But for my children, I would have them keep their
       distance from the thickening center; corruption
Never has been compulsory, and when the cities lie at the
       monster’s feet there are left the mountains.
       —from “Shine, Perishing Republic”
To keep one’s own integrity, be merciful and uncorrupted
       and not wish for evil; and not be duped
By dreams of universal justice or happiness. These dreams
       will not be fulfilled.
       —from “The Answer”
Long live freedom and damn the ideologies
       —from “The Stars Go Over the Lonely Ocean”

You can read a small selection of Jeffers’ poetry HERE.




My, How Times Have Changed

December 4, 2020 — In Wilmington, Delaware, President-Elect Joe Biden was asked: “Do you think the COVID vaccine should be mandatory?” He replied: “No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory.” PROOF

April 29, 2021 — At a press conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated: “So here’s the thing, we cannot require someone to be vaccinated. That’s just not what we can do. It is a matter of privacy to know who is and who isn’t.” PROOF

July 23, 2021 — At a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki replied to a question suggesting “....that perhaps the federal government should step in and issue mandates?....” Her answer, in part, stated: “....that’s not the role of the federal government; that is the role that institutions, private-sector entities, and others may take....” PROOF




“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
       —C.S. Lewis

“If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.”

Drunk with BATMAN




So, She Of The Hyphenated Last Name went to Florida, Land of the Free, so she could enjoy some vacation time mask-free. Someone on Twitter posted a picture and called her out on her hypocrisy, and also made fun of her boyfriend’s sandals. She responded with the most bizarre, nonsensical, narcissistic reaction The Infidel has seen in many moons:

“If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos.”

(You can see her tweet HERE if it hasn’t been deleted yet.)
Wow. Just WOW. In her dreams maybe. Would someone please tell She Of The Hyphenated Last Name it would probably be best to keep her sexual fantasies private. You post something on the Internet, it’s forever; your kids will see it someday. Trust me, WE DON’T WANT TO DATE YOU.
Ya creepy weirdo.
