Dead Body Found in Stone Lake, La Grange County, Indiana, February 20, 2017

MSM backstory.

Lake is in far northern Indiana next to the Michigan border. Very much flyover country, somewhat rural, mixed farms, small towns and some industry such as meatpacking, working class, White, redneck, staunchly Republican, teabaggers, Cum Trumpsters. Floater found in lake by kayakers. This is the only information that was given out by LE or MSM. LE stated that “the investigation is very active and ongoing.”

From witness statements: Adult male. Found dead floating in the lake chained to a cinderblock.

Obviously a homicide.

Not killed by Delphi Double Homicide Killer. Wrong age and sex.

I have a lot of thoughts about how this crime came about though.

Not killed by drowning. Body dump.

Killer was not a woman. Killer was a strong young man who lives a somewhat marginal life. Victim may also have lived marginally.

Looks like a mob hit, but I am not sure the mob exists on anymore, kills people like that or is active in Indiana. Not a gang killing. Gangs don’t bother to do body dumps. They just do drivebys and leave the bodies where they fall. More likely a drug deal gone sour or something such. Possibly a love triangle. Maybe the victim got involved with killer’s girl. This was a crime of hatred. The victim did something to really make the killer very mad, stark raving homicidally furious. He was killed as “paybacks.” A message was sent by this killing to the victim (though he is dead) and especially to his or the killers’ associates or anyone paying attention. The killer is saying, “Don’t mess with me. You mess with me and you die. Watch your step, dammit.”

Body possibly dumped by more than one man.

Killer is reasonably intelligent, probably a younger White man, under age 40.

He is macho, tough and redneck. He works at some sort of working class job, possibly involving physical labor. He is probably a “bad boy” type. He may work at a regular job where he sees the public every day. In his milieu, no one thinks much of such crimes, and people often think the victim asked for it.

No Putin Is Not Worth $60 Billion, and He Does Not Kill Journalists

Robert- In all seriousness why is Putin so great according to the Alt Right and Left? I understand he is an ‘answer’ to neocon bullshit so to speak, but let’s not delude ourselves about this guy.

Juan: He has brutally suppressed opposition to his rule, oftentimes through the murder of journalists, Chechens, whomever. It’s not a free society.

His political opposition are convicted in kangaroo courts of nothing.

Meanwhile Putin has massive investments in 0il in his country, allowing him to push policy to line his pocket books. He is worth $70 billion.

As I said above, an alliance with him and against neocons is a good thing, but this “muh poor Putin victimized by the West” rhetoric is not good.

I cannot speak for the Alt Right. The Left goes a bit too easy on Putin. Putin is definitely a thug. He has had a few people killed. Those people were spies. Intelligence agents, working for the FSB (Russian CIA). All of them were double agents. Even under Yeltsin, several US double agents were executed. In many countries, double agents are considered traitors. It is quite typical for countries to execute double agents. Double agents do not have a long life expectancy. I do not have much sympathy for such heedless and death-defying people. They chose a profoundly risky profession and they paid with their lives. So what?

Also, Putin is out for Putin. He supported Trump because Trump promised to go easy on him, while Hillary had him down as US enemy #1. Who do you expect him to support.

Russia has not been a free country since 1991 and it was not a free country before that all the way back to 1917. Russian people seem like to like benevolent dictators. It’s all they’ve ever known. Most of them don’t even believe in democracy. Putin is extremely popular, with popularity at 87%.  Compare that to the popularity of US-supported Medvedev and  Yeltsin at ~10%. Isn’t it better to have an authoritarian leader who everyone loves as opposed to one who everyone hates?

You must understand how many people in Russia are corrupt. Putin is about the least corrupt man in the whole country. Nearly the entire opposition is dirty and corrupt. Many to most have organized crime connections. Well documented white collar crime has been aptly demonstrated among nearly all major opposition figures. Some of these people have run afoul of Putin and  have been tried and convicted in completely fair courts of law. The Russian legal system is quite fair. There are no kangaroo courts in Russia. A charge of selective prosecution could be made though. The opposition figures now in prison should have thought about that before they committed their dirty white collar crimes.

Putin does not have one nickel of investment in oil in his country to my knowledge.

The Chechen War has been going on since 1991. It’s been a Dirty War from the start, exactly like all of the counterinsurgencies the US supports. Russia’s war against the Chechens is not much different from your typical US supported counterinsurgency. Killings of opposition journalists, human rights activists and Chechen opposition figures and rebel supporters have been going on the entire time. In recent times, almost all such killings have been linked to the internal security forces of Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, etc.

I agree that some journalists have been beaten up for reporting the wrong things. Probably Putin’s thugs did this. But the other Presidents murdered journalists. Putin just has a few beaten up. That’s an improvement. Mostly all Putin ever does is shut down opposition media. Most of the opposition TV has been shut down. I think some is still available on cable though. I am not sure about opposition papers, journals and magazines. Actually I believe that the opposition media is alive and well. For instance, I can point you to a CIA-run website that quotes Russian opposition figures on a daily basis. Often they are professors, researchers, journalists or think tank workers. Most are employed inside Russia. They sit there in Russia and shoot off their mouths every day and nothing seems to happen to them. Often the quotes are from Russian papers,  magazines, journals, TV stations or radio stations. I assume that all of these are active in Russia. For the most part, it seems that these opposition figures are left alone. You would be amazed at the sort of crap these people say on a daily basis. A lot of them are openly treasonous, supporting the enemy in wartime. For instance, many support Ukraine in the current war.

The Internet is free in Russia and a vast proportion of Russian language media is run by the Opposition, mostly out of Europe. Finland is a major center for this. Any Russian can call up any Russian Opposition website anytime they want to. Most such sites are also in English because most of their readership is among English speakers. Opposition daily newspapers and magazines can be purchased for sale every day in Moscow. I believe the big foreign press is on sale there. I am sure you can buy a copy of the New York Times in Moscow. It is just that nobody wants to read this stuff.

The truth is that the Opposition has no support. The Opposition leader who was killed had gotten 1% support in the last election. The pro-Western Opposition, which is most of the Opposition that the US cares about, has 5-10% support, closer to 5%. Nobody likes them, nobody wants them. I have known some Russians and I asked them about the pro-US Opposition. They all told me, “Oh you mean the traitors? We don’t call them Opposition here. We call them the traitors. Everybody hates them. They support the US. Here in Russia, if you support the US, you are a traitor who supports the enemy. All Russians oppose the US as an enemy state.”

Putin has not murdered one single journalist during his most recent terms in office. In fact far fewer journalists have died under Putin than under any previous President.

There are deaths of journalists in Russia. A few journalists have been killed under Putin. These hits were mostly mob hits or personal disputes. A few were political killings in the Caucasus.

Since 1991, the vast majority of journalist killings have been in the Caucasus. These have all been related to the insurgency down there. Journalists suspected of siding with the rebels or writing about human rights abuses have been killed. This happens in most insurgencies. US-supported insurgencies are notorious for slaughtering journalists and opposition media. The US murdered opposition media in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. It is standard Pentagon procedure to target opposition journalists as combatants in modern warfare.

By far the most killings of journalists occurred under Boris Yeltsin. Vastly more journalists were killed under Yeltsin than under anyone else. Yeltsin was a stauch US ally and not a single disparaging word was ever written about him in the US press. He also stole elections. Putin’s elections are much freer than Yeltsin’s, and Putin is far less corrupt.

Putin is not worth $60 billion. This is just flat out fake news. In 2007, Putin had a net worth or $150,000. In 2012, Putin’s salary was $130,000. Surely his net worth now is hardly worth more than it was in 2007. Putin has not used the Presidency to enrich himself, unlike our current Scumbag in Chief. Russia’s Executive Branch is vastly more honest and less corrupt than America’s. What I think is amusing is that Americans who just elected a multibillionaire who has filled his Cabinet with billionaires and multibillionaires, are outraged that Putin is supposedly a multibillionaire himself. It’s rich, but all US criticism of anyone is usually pretty rich. We’re Number One all right. Number One in exceptionalism, self-delusion and hypocrisy.

Double Homicide in Delphi, Indiana, February 13, 2017: Liberty German and Abbie Williams

Really nasty sexually-motivated double homicide of two teenage girls, one 13 and the other 14. For some background on this heartbreaking case, see here.

I like to do “sleuthing” in my part time. Although it’s gruesome, playing detective is a bit of a hobby of mine, and it is engrossing in some odd say.

I would like to throw a lot of stuff out there.

My Musings on This Case

Everybody insists that the place where the girls were found is where they were killed. Think again. Think body dump. Or how about neither body dump nor killing locale, but perhaps the place where the killer caught up with them? Or an evidence dump locale. Just because an area is roped off does not mean it’s a kill or dump site. Could just be a lot of evidence there. If am having a hard time figuring out how he carted them down to that site if it is a dump site though; this is why I feel it may be just a crime scene with evidence.

I believe that the girls were “confined” in some way. I’m not going to elaborate on that. Could mean tied up or could mean placed in some structure.

There is said to be a cabin somewhere in the back of that property hidden away. No one is talking about it, but it could be important. I believe that police raided a structure on the property. Perhaps it was this cabin. Cabin should be at least thrown in the mix.

I believe the actual murders occurred in a rather out of the way locale where it would be hard to see or hear what was going on.

I fear that the nature of this crime is quite gruesome. Just the bare facts of the crime itself are ugly enough, but I am afraid that once we learn the details, it is going to be worse. Horror movie stuff.

I believe that Libby was killed on 2-13, possibly pretty quickly, and Abby was killed (or died) or 2-14. “Or died” is important. I know this because the published obits state those dates. There is a rumor that the families chose those dates as death dates, but that would apply only to funerals, not obits. Obit info would come straight from coroner report. Therefore, coroner report had to state different death dates.

I actually do not believe that any working phones were recovered. Maybe a dead phone or maybe no phones. When the search was going on, both phones were deadAs stated by LE.

Photo of Unsub does not come from girls’ phones. Video is probably only 10 seconds long. Although there are no security trailcams in the area, I believe there may be gamecams. A gamecam video would be only 10 seconds long or so. So this is a gamecam video. But how does a gamecam video shoot the bridge?

There are claims that the photo of Abbie on the bridge shows the killer hiding below the bridge. Claim is worthless; that is just some shadow.

Unsub marginal. Drifter, bum, homeless, etc.

Probably not a crime of opportunity. He planned this at least somewhat. That is why he is armed with the gun and disguising himself.

Unsub is clearly trying to disguise himself in the photos. He is using a hat and a scarf in front of his face to do this. As stated by LE.

Talk of backpacks and duffle bags makes no sense to me.

We are making a lot of assumptions here. Everybody assumes that both girls were dead when they were found. I think we should be open to the possibility that that may not be true. As in perhaps girl(s) were near death but not dead when found. Which may account for the different dates. Libby on 13th means she died that day. Abbie on 14th I feel means she suffered until the 14th and then died on that day. Perhaps she was even barely alive when discovered.

In published UK media, grandfather who raised her made an odd statement, “I know Abbie. She put up one Hell of a fight.” This has no doubt led to a lot of speculation along the lines of, “What an odd thing to say.” He did not say ‘would have put up a fight.’ He said, ‘She did put up a fight.’ How does he know? Was he there? No idea if grandfather is a suspect, but people are probably chattering about him. But does LE think he is a suspect? Nobody knows. But I am thinking he be cleared. For one thing, his photo is much heavier than that of the Unsub. And his hair is a lot different, in bangs. However, I do think that Abbie may have put up quite a strong battle. The Unsub may have scratch marks. She may even have his DNA under her nails from the fightback.

I do not believe that LE has any known suspect in mind at this moment.

I believe they are going around questioning people who being talked about. They are probably clearing these people. I assume they are going around to all of the local RSO’s. They probably want them to come talk about the case. While there, they may search the man’s phone  and ask them to submit DNA. They are probably clearing at least some of them this way.

The raid was on the property of the old man who lives alone and owns the property where the girls were found. He is completely innocent and cleared. The huge raid there was because there were possibly multiple crime scenes there – abduction site, kill site, dump site? I know local police, Indiana SP, and FBI were all there. They stayed there a while because I believe they got some quality evidence there. Jim Logan is cleared because the poor guy had nothing to do with it.

I believe the gun obviously holstered on the right under the jacket of Unsub was used to control the girls somehow. He also got them to keep quiet somehow, maybe with the gun. However, I do not believe the gun was used to kill the girls. It would have made too much noise. Rumors that this was not a gun crime are probably correct.

Yes, the girls were murdered, and I believe they were killed brutally and horribly in such a way that a shot to the head would have been merciful. I do not believe they were strangled. It’s possible but not likely. Instead they were both killed with a hand-held weapon. This weapon is some deadly object like a knife, hammer, club, pipe or other blunt object. Basically they were either beaten to death or stabbed to death. I believe that the crime scene was a bloody and ugly mess, a real horrorshow.

This is obviously a sexually motivated offense. In other words, to put it brutally, both girls were raped, no doubt while they were still alive. This was motive. They were killed after the rapes to eliminate witnesses. I believe that Liberty may have been killed quite quickly, but she was probably raped also. The target was probably Abbie. Liberty was just in the way. He used Abbie sexually overnight. He kept her alive for this purpose. Whether he tortured Abbie or not is not known. He slit her throat hastily the next morning and made his getaway.  Death was fairly quick with knife wounds or bashings with blunt object. He stabbed or bashed Abbie the next morning when he was done with her, figured she was dead and then took off. But Liberty was probably killed soon after the abduction.

I feel he may have tied them up somehow, maybe with a rope.

Look, as a libertine, I do not care if girls this age are sexually active, ok? That means nothing to me. However, I have a feeling that at least one of the girls, probably Liberty, was sexually active, and she may have had a boyfriend, in the recent past. Boyfriend was probably bad boy, tough guy, macho guy, also a teenage boy. He was probably a young adult, maybe 20 years old. Although this is statutory rape, I think this sort of thing is quite common around  there. He probably knew her from the school. These girls were not completely innocent little girl-children like elementary school girls. They were worldly teenage girls. They were more grown up than people think.

This guy is either a local or he is intimately familiar with the area. Not just the bridge and woods area, but I mean the whole town of Delphi. He is very at home all over that whole town somehow. I doubt if he is a resident, as I feel he is a transient. But I think he has been in the Delphi area, especially around the bridge, for a few weeks. This was enough time to familiarize himself with the area. He probably survives by panhandling. Even for a transient, he may be quite belligerent and confrontational. In that sense he is stupid as he makes himself known. His clothes are probably rather dirty and he may wear them for weeks at a time. He may smell bad from not showering or washing his clothes.

I feel that this man is homeless in some way or another. I do not think he lurks in homeless camps though. He is more of a loner.

Statistically, he lives within 30 miles of the area, as this is his comfort zone. Studies show that body dumps occur on the edges of comfort zones. Killings occur within comfort zones. He may well reside within 30 miles of the area.

He’s a creepy bastard. Given his age, probably 45-early 60’s (midrange 50’s), this is not his first offense. He has done similar things before, or at least he has committed some lowly crimes before. He may well have a criminal record, but he may not be an RSO. I think this is not his first sex crime, but he may have gotten away with the priors.

This guy knew the bridge/forest area really well. He’s been there before for whatever reason and has explored the whole area. He is also quite familiar with the private property where the bodies were found. I do not know how he is familiar with that man’s property, but he knows it pretty well.

He’s going to lay low for a while. He won’t do any similar crimes in the near future. He’s not that stupid.

I doubt if he has even left the area. For some reason I think he stuck around the nearby area after he did the crimes.

LE had a presser saying that there are all sorts of people pointing fingers at POI’s on social media, but my feeling is that most of them have been cleared in some way or another.

LE is not incompetent. I feel they have been working their tails off since this case broke. They have nothing to show for it, but cops are not gods. They’re human, and LE does not always get their man. It is not so easy to solve a crime like this.

Neil Young, “Let’s Impeach the President”

Obviously topical. Replace this retarded chimp with the lunatic baboon currently infesting the Oval Office, and same to him.

Impeach, and gone.

You will not be missed!

Good God that is good music! Wow! Neil Young, 2006, from Living With War. Recorded at age 61. I had no idea he was still making great music. I love that anthem feel to this song. This indeed a rock anthem. And it’s got a Wall of Sound. Phil Spector introduced this concept, but a lot of others replicated it, including the Sex Pistols on their first album and the Clash on their out of this world second album, Give Em Enough Rope. Jesus and Mary Chain also had an unreal wall of sound feel. Really a lot of Young’s best music has also had a wall of sound. No idea how he did it.

When I listened to this song, I thought of the Sex Pistols. Then I remembered that Young dedicated Rust Never Sleeps to them, an act for which he suffered much criticism.

Then it hit me. It’s all the same. The Sex Pistols. Neil Young. And on and on. It’s all the same stuff. It’s all just rock and roll. From Elvis to Nirvana and beyond, it’s all the same stuff. Rockabilly, Merseysound, British invasion, heavy metal, glam rock, punk rock, speed metal, death metal, gothic, grunge, for God’s sake, it’s all the same damn thing.

It’s all just good old rock and roll! Rocking til death! Rocking the old folks home, motherfuckers!

I loved his early stuff of course. Neil Young has always been one of the greatest rockers. Of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, he was always the best.

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969)
After the Gold Rush (1970)
Harvest (1972)
Time Fades Away (1973)
Tonight’s the Night (1973) (released 1975)
On the Beach (1974)
Zuma (1975)
Long May You Run (1976)
Decade (1977)
American Stars ‘n Bars (1977)
Comes a Time (1978)
Rust Never Sleeps (1979)

28 albums followed that one, and I know not one thing about any of them, although Rocking in the Free World off Freedom flashes with that old magic we know and love so well.

All of those albums are out of this world. I even like Time Fades Away. Zuma is good! The little-known On the Beach is probably one of the most underrated albums ever made. Either that or the barely-known Tonight’s the Night. Great album! I had a cassette of Comes a Time in my car in 1979. I listened to it on the way to school every morning. For days and weeks and months on end. I never tired of that music. There was not a bad song on that album. Rust Never Sleeps was absolutely out of this world. Decade is a great compilation and contains a great never before released song about Richard Nixon, CampaignerAmerican Stars and Bars is good! Homegrown is a great song, and Like a Hurricane is one of the greatest rock and roll songs of all time.

A Few Countries Where US-Style Conservatives Are in Power

Juan: The Filipino government.

Center-left economics but far-right socially (law and order, etc.)

This does not remind you of Trump?

There is absolutely nothing even 1% left or even centrist about Trump. He’s basically the most rightwing man on Earth, and the Republican Party is one of the most rightwing ruling parties on Earth.

There are some contenders now in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, Brazil, Honduras and Haiti, but they have vast opposition among the people. I doubt if they have majority support in any of those countries.

Two of them came to power in legislative coups – in Paraguay and Brazil.

Honduras is a military dictatorship, as is Haiti. Both governments are hated by the majority of the population.

Yes, far right parties were elected in Argentina, Chile and Colombia.

But in Argentina the far right was replacing the Hard Left with Kirchner and the government has huge opposition.

There is a lot of support for the Right in Chile, but I doubt if it’s the majority. Chile has been governed by members of the Socialist Party for most of the last 20 years. Furthermore, the Left is radicalized, activated huge and often violent in opposition.

Colombia has long been probably the most rightwing country on Earth. Probably the majority of the population supports the Hard Fascist Right. Why this is, is not known, but it is a long tradition down there. Nevertheless, the Left is huge, extremely radicalized and activated, and in fact, they have taken up arms. Actually, they have been armed to the teeth for the last 52 years. The armed Left is powerful and deadly, and they have killed 10,000’s of soldiers and police. They are so powerful that a while back, they fired mortars at the Capital building at the very moment that the new President was being sworn in. Some of the mortars actually struck the building.

Glimpsing the Truth about Venezuela Amidst the Blizzard of Lies

Tulio: Venezuelan socialism was authoritarian and proto-communist. Scandinavian social democracy is not at all. I don’t think Chavez looked to Norway for inspiration but rather to Castro.

Keep in mind that nearly everything you read about Venezuela in the US Controlled Media unfree press is a lie. I have yet to see even one story written about that country that was not a lie from start to finish.

The last sentence is completely untrue.

Chavez himself said that Cubans have their way, and we have ours. Different systems for different countries. He never tried to copy the Cuban model. He was trying to do something completely different.

An Eternity of Lies from the Venezuelan Opposition

The first sentence is also completely untrue.

It was never even 1% authoritarian.

Venezuela has one of the freest presses on Earth, and all in all, it is one of the freest countries on the planet. I have read the Opposition press, and it is simply shocking. The Opposition media is so openly dishonest that frankly they probably ought to be shut down on that basis alone. They shameless lie in the wildest ways you could imagine every single day of the year. Their lies have provoked riots, arson and murder. Imagine Fox News during Obama except 5X worse, and that will give you some examples.

There were regular calls to assassinate Chavez and other government officials and nothing was ever done. Yes, the Opposition press regularly, almost daily, called for the murder of the President, and the government did not lift one finger against them.

All of the Opposition press participated in an illegal military coup. They should have been shut down on that basis alone. How can you allow an openly traitorous press?

The Opposition down there is so evil that they even fake exit polls in order to validate false charges of electoral fraud. Venezuela is the only on Earth where I have seen the actual faking of exit polls. Faking exit polls is a grievous crime against democracy because they were one of the few ways that we can tell if an election was honest or not.

Venezuela’s elections are said to be the freest on Earth. I agree. In the last election when the US and Opposition lied and said there was massive fraud, a recount was done. Fully 60% of the ballots were recounted under careful observation and there was not one single ballot in error. The Supreme Court then said, “Ok, 60% without one single error is good enough, no need to count the rest.” The Opposition then screamed fraud, and Obama Administration stomped their feet and screamed fraud also. Do you really think there was 1% chance of fraud in that election?

“Liberals” Hillary Clinton and John (Satan) Kerry led the charge in demanding new elections and demanding that the Chavistas share power with the Opposition. That’s like the Democrats lose an election, and they demand that the Republicans share power with them by filling half the Executive Branch with Democrats.

True, he replaced a lot of the army, but those people who were replaced had participated in a military coup. The army needs to support the regime.

Yes, he replaced most of the judiciary, but this has to be done everywhere in Latin America. An insanely corrupt elite judiciary is a major part of the problem down there, and every time they have a revolution,  one of the first things they do is a “judicial reform.” This means throwing out all of the corrupt judges of the elite and putting in some real judges. You know, people who believe in laws and stupid stuff like that.

Venezuela is vastly more democratic than the US has probably ever been. We have probably never had one day of democracy in this stupid country, and it’s getting much worse. This is because our class enemies who run this country do not believe in democracy. In fact, they have an extreme hatred of democracy.

Sins of the Organized Crime Gang Called “The Opposition”

All of the Opposition figures participated in the military coup and they all should have been put in prison if not shot on that basis alone. Instead they were all set free. All of the Opposition figures who are now in prison were guilty of extreme corruption and financial crimes or abuse of the judiciary. And almost 100% of them were guilty of participating in plots to assassinate the President. One of them ever raised an entire army of hundreds of men on her rural estate. Their purpose was to assassinate the President and seize power. Those few who were not guilty of money crimes or trying to kill the President are guilty of provoking violent riots in which ~40 people died. They were behind those riots all the way down to organizing them at the ground level and distributing guns and bombs to the rioters.

 

The Opposition gets away with murder down there and nothing is done. They rioted in their neighborhoods for years on end, and the police mostly stood there and watched them burn stuff down. Almost no country on Earth except pre-coup Ukraine has gone as easy on rioters as Venezuela has. Even with the latest riots, the police were very hands-off. Once again, they were probably more moderate in putting down those riots than any other police force on Earth. The regime knows that if they do anything heavy-handed at all, the US will scream “police brutality” and “civil rights abuses.”

Bolivarian Economics: China Is Vastly More Socialist than Venezuela

With the exception of oil, the whole economy is in the private sector. China is orders of magnitude more socialist than Venezuela.

All they did was create some social democracy. They built a lot of free to cheap housing, upgraded a lot of infrastructure, wired up the whole country for electricity, subsidized food prices for the poor, sold cheap household furnishings as My Happy Home stores. They created free public education and spent massively on educational facilities. They created free health care and spent hugely on medical care for the people. They promoted a lot of organizing and governing at the local level. They did a land reform by confiscating a lot of untilled land and turning it over to landless peasants to farm. They gave land titles to some local municipalities to grow their own food and run their own factories and enterprises. That’s more or less what China has done.

Chavez did great things for civil rights in Venezuela. Rights for Blacks, mestizos, mulattos and zambos were dramatically increased. Indian rights were expanded greatly, and they were given title to much of their land.

Women’s rights were also expanded dramatically, and the country even introduced civil rights for gays, which is hard to do in Latin America.

73% of the population still supports socialism and Bolivarianism.

The Chavistas massively improved lives in all ways for the poor, the lower middle class, the working classes, and in some ways for the middle classes though the latter do not realize this.

True there was a lot of talk about building socialism, but frankly the consensus on the Left is that they never got around to it. Bolivarianism was never Communist. It was always 100% democracy.

There was a lot of criticism on the Hard Left saying that all Venezuela had done was create a social democracy instead of going to socialism. Comparisons with Norway and Sweden were common.

In Latin America, Liberalism = Communism = Death

You must understand that if you even try to implement the mildest social democracy down in the Latin America, you are a Communist terrorist who must be shot dead. Anything even hinting at liberalism or Left is called Communism, and the attitude of the Right down there is “Kill all Communists.”

If you are in a labor union, you are a Communist because all labor unions are Communist. All human rights organizations are Communist. Everyone preaching Liberation Theology is a Communist. Most professors and students and public universities are considered to be Communists as are most public school teachers, especially because they have very militant unions. All peasant organizations are Communist. Really, every single grassroots popular organization down there is Communist.

PS The US supports this ideology 100%.

The Opposition’s History and Future Project

The Opposition never lifted one finger for the people. They ran that country for decades or really over a century and they did do one damn thing for the people the whole time. Before Chavez took power, 89% of the population lived in poverty in an oil rich nation. 91% of the population could afford only one meal per day. Malnutrition was rife. Health care was for fee for service and simply unavailable to people without the money to pay for it. Same with optometry, dentistry, the whole thing. Educational facilities were poor and falling apart because the elites in government all sent their kids to private schools, and paid no taxes, hence there was no money for public education.

here was no public housing. Sewage ran down the gutters of the streets on the hillside slums where most people lived. There was no clean water. Higher education was expensive and out of the reach of most of the people. In the rural areas most people were landless peasants and a tiny group of rentier rich owned almost all of the fertile land, much of which lay fallow. Death squads roamed the countryside and every year, they murdered ~50 peasants.

The system was profoundly racist, and if you were not White or mostly White, you stood little chance of making money or succeeding in politics. It was a Whites-only elite with no openings for non-Whites. In fact, much of the Opposition was openly racist. The Opposition openly called him “Mono” which means “monkey.” This is a reference to the fact that he is of mixed Indian, White and Black blood. Most of their fury over Chavez was because some guy who looked like the gardener or the maid was running the country and telling the White rich what to do.

I am surprised because the commenter is a Black man who apparently supports the viciously racist Venezuelan Opposition.

And you Americans are mystified at why countries go Left? Why in the Hell do you think?

The Opposition has no project. The project of the Opposition has always been to roll back all of Bolivarianism and take things back to the good old days described above. They have no other project because they cannot have another project. The Opposition are elites who support a project that is “everything for the elites, nothing for anybody else.”

Game/PUA: Effects of “Alpha” Behaviors on Love and Sex in Females

Juan: Alpha- from my observation that’s true when women hit 25-30. Before that TRASH is correct.

It seems to be a “shallow” thing as TRASH said.

Trash has made a number of statements about various female ethnicities and their sexual proclivities. My experiences have not matched his, but his reality is valid.

Studies consistently show that only 25-30% of women consistently reach orgasm with sexual intercourse. The rates go up to 80% with oral sex. I would say that all women like oral sex. I have given oral sex to quite a few Asian women, and they liked it just fine. Also to a few Hispanic women with the same response. The Hispanic women were pleasantly surprised that I would want to do such a  thing. With Black women, one thought it was weird, but she really got into it big time when I did it to her. For some reason, Black women think it is odd that any man would actually like to do such a thing.

Contrary to Trash’s characterization, I have found that White women can be very good fucks. Even White girls all the way down to age 14 can be really good fucks. They’re horny as Hell, and they really like to fuck from age 14 at least all the way to age 52 at least. I have no experience with females under 14 or over 52, so I can’t comment there.

Females at all ages, even teenage girls, can go at it for hours if you can keep it up. And I have had porno-style sex with quite a few White women. A White woman will do just about anything sexually if she is turned on by you and especially if she is in love with you. Sexual attraction turns on the female sex drive and love ramps it up to overdrive.

A woman in love frequently complains that she is horny all the time. She often says, “What is wrong with me? What have you done to me? Have you cast a spell on me?” I have heard this a number of times from different women and even from teenage girls. Yes, I did cast a spell on her, but it was a love spell. She’s horny all the time because she’s crazy in love and also because she is very turned on to the guy sexually.

Acting “Alpha” is great for getting women to fall nuts in love with you and turning them into nymphos who feel horny all the time and want to fuck all the time. I have no idea if my love spells work, but the women were definitely in love and they often accused me of putting a spell on them. Sometimes they even told me, “Take the spell off, dammit.”

I have also read quite a few other cases of men acting “Alpha” and getting women to fall nuts in love with them. These women also complained that they felt horny all the time.

Sexual attraction is necessary to turn on the female sex drive. “Alpha” behavior can add to this sense of attraction, but good looks really helps. Alpha -looks probably doesn’t work that great. Alpha behavior + good looks is a great ticket to wild love and crazy sex from women.

“Alpha” behavior can also create wild, head over heels love-type behavior in women. A woman this wild in love can also feel horny all the time because passionate love is an on switch for the female sex drive.

However, this wild love for “Alpha” behavior has a very unstable aspect to it. There is a lot of love-hate, screaming and yelling, wild fights, calling you back 20-30 times in an hour while cussing you out and hanging up, continuous threats, bickering, crying, fistfights, intense hatred and rage, along with a lot of wildly passionate love and all the great things that go along with that. “Alpha” behavior can also cause extreme submission in women. They often started calling me “Daddy” went they went crazy-submissive like that. In these relationships, I ended up doing a lot of incest role-play where I was Daddy and she was the teenage girl. I know you all are going to start calling me names now, so I will remind you that these roleplays were instigated by the women, not me.

I’ve never had such wild love affairs as when I started acting consciously “Alpha.” A certain amount of that was bastardy, but really it was more being not being pussy-whipped and refusing to fight back. I used to be horribly pussy-whipped and would never fight back against girlfriends for fear she would cut off the pussy supply. This did not work so well, but the relationships were a lot more stable. They also did not last that long and they were characterized by a lot of contempt coming from the women.

After I went “Alpha,” I did not so much act like a jerk who treats women like crap. Instead I started fighting back against bitch behaviors. “Shut up bitch!…Shut up you little bitch!…Fuck you!…Fuck you bitch!…” I even called them cunts quite a bit. “Shut up cunt!..Shut up you stupid cunt!…” etc etc.

The “treat them like crap” guys are right in the sense that fighting back brutally against bitch behaviors does seem to turn on a wild sex drive and a wild and crazy head over heels passionate love. But you have to be very kind and good to them when they are not bitching out. So it’s a combination of being a very kind and good man when she is being a good girl and being a real motherfucker when she is being a bad girl.

It’s almost like the way her parents treated her. As you can see in the submission and calling you “Daddy,” perhaps you are reverting her to childhood or better yet teen years when a powerful father was the source of tremendous love when she was good but also brutal coldness and cruelty when she was acting up. I have a feeling that females’ relationships with their fathers may be a lot more sexual than people think. Why else do women crumble into submission scared eyes and little girl voices and start calling you “Daddy” when faced with a dominant man? Why else do they want to do teenage girl-Daddy incest roleplays? What other explanation can there be for this?

You would think cussing women out when she is acting up would drive them away but it did not. Instead it tended to cause this wild, unstable, horny-all-the-time love affair-of-the-century behavior, albeit combined with frequent or continuous mood swings, frequent fights and a lot of hatred but little if any contempt. If you want wild, passionate love affairs with horny all the time nymphos down for anything goes porno style sex, this is apparently the ticket. On the other hand, these relationships are very wild and unstable, with continuous fights on a daily to multiple times a day basis. The bonus from that downside is the wildest love you have ever experienced. Love and hate are very close.

If you don’t want this wild, manic-depressive Hollywood movie love then you might want to try something more down to earth but more stable.

US Style Conservatism Is Hated All over the Planet

Tulio: The Philippines sounds more rightwing than the US right now. Their bloodthirsty, murderous ultra-nationalist despot is rather popular.

Middle East countries are conservative.

I don’t think Americans themselves are nearly as rightwing as the government. When they are polled, they seemed to be more center-left. From what I understand, most Americans support gay marriage, most believe climate change is a real threat, most support increasing the minimum wage, most believe in upholding Roe v Wade, most want to protect the environment, most now want marijuana legalized, I’ve even heard that most believe in universal health care now.

On the actual issues when polled a la carte, most people aren’t rightwing. Many Republicans however have been brainwashed into thinking that any Democratic president will turn America into Venezuela under Chavez. They bring up Venezuelan socialism all the time and accuse the Democratic party of wanting to be like Latin American socialism, which is bullshit of course. The progressives in the Democratic party look at European social democracy as a model, not Venezuela or Cuba.

Show me anywhere on Earth where US Republican Party style conservatism is popular. Duterte says he is socialist, and he got elected President. Sound like a Republican to you. He has a good relationship with the New People’s Army, an armed Maoist revolutionary group. He had an excellent relationship with them when in government in Mindanao. Still think Duterte is a Republican.

Yes, Middle Eastern countries are conservative (as are many countries), but that is just social conservatism. Social conservatism barely matters. Conservatism is only important in economics and in nothing else. Show me one Middle Eastern country anywhere where US-style conservatism is popular. One, one, one.

Venezuela is just a case where they tried to put in European social democracy, but the elite down there is so fanatically reactionary that they fought it at every turn, mostly recently completely blowing up the whole economy via sabotage, which their leaders have even confessed to. So Venezuela is what happens when the capitalist opposition opposes social democratic reforms with all their weight. I don’t see how Chavez was trying to do anything different than say Norway for instance. That seemed to be his model.

Social democracy or democratic socialism in one form or another is simply the way of almost the entire world. The whole planet runs on variations of this system or in some cases such as China, even further Left than that. China is far to the Left of social democracy.

How to Act Masculine

GondwanaMan: I wanna be masculine.

There’s not much to it. Masculinity is a show. It’s a mask you put on for other men. It’s simply a behavioral display and most any man can learn to act this way if they practice.

Practice. Try to act masculine. First try to think in a masculine way. Then start envisioning yourself as a masculine man. Look at masculine men and frankly just imitate them. Imitate actors. I do that a lot. I actually imitate of a couple of porn stars from the Golden Age because I like their style. One is Jamie Gillis. He was a bastard but he had a good style.

It won’t look funny at all. Try it on for size and see how it works. Even if it feels like you are doing the most idiotic parody of masculinity on Earth that would make anyone burst out in laughter, you probably are not. You are probably just acting the way many men do all the time. Keep on practicing when you are alone. Get it to where it starts to feel pretty normal. The more it feels normal, natural and not forced, the better it will come across. At some point,  hopefully it will become a sort of second nature and you will act this way without trying.

Try not to worry so much about what others think. If you are prone to being very self-conscious and sensitive, say to yourself over and over, “I don’t care about them. I don’t care about you. I don’t give a damn what you think about anything! You think I care? LOL yeah right. I don’t care what you think!”

This sounds narcissistic if not sociopathic but if you are already introverted and sensitive, you are so far on the other side of Cluster B that thinking those thoughts will not turn you into a monster. You will be your normal pleasant self, but you will care a lot less about what others think.

This is very important. Fear is a life-killer. If you worry what everyone thinks all the time, you will hardly ever act. You won’t ask many women out. You won’t even approach many women. You might be scared to act masculine. All of these things are life-destroying because if it goes too far, you end up living an isolated life with little dating, fun or human interaction. Shy people are usually very nice, but shyness can ruin your life by keeping you from doing much of anything at all.

“If you think you’re masculine, you’re masculine, period.”

My father, who had a typical moronic view of masculinity, used to get furious at me when I said that. But it’s true.

For some reason this is very controversial with a lot of idiotic masculine men. A lot of masculine men are very stupid about masculinity. They treat it like it is some precious elixir that only the finest anointed ones are gifted with. The rest of the men will never attain it no matter how hard they try. So many men have told me things like, “They’re trying to be men. But it’s bullshit because they’re not men.” This is retardation. Got news for ya, pal. If you’re trying to be a man, you are a man. It’s real simple. If you’re trying to  be confident, you are liable to act a lot more confident.

I have known many unmasculine men in my life. Most were soft, passive and sometimes wimpy.  There are no unmasculine men who think they are masculine. Feminine, soft, passive or wimpy men know that they are not masculine. They simply don’t care, or they don’t feel that they have it in them. Trust me that most of these men did not even try to act masculine. I know this because they confided this in me.

The Old “Treat Woman Like Crap” Advice

GondwanaMan: Pumpkin Person told to me to try some sociopathy/narcissism, but it’s hard! I started reading Chateau Heartiste/Roosh V, then went outside of my apartment to try it out. First girl I tried it on, walked away. Same with the second. Then I went to a third one. Same thing.

Finally I found an elderly woman and talked down to her like she was stupid. She liked me, but I think only because she was hard of hearing and lonely. So I’ll try again tomorrow on someone else.

Personally, the last men on Earth I would read for advice on how to get women are ultra-misogynists and narcissist/sociopaths Chateau Heartiste and Roosh V. I suppose that technique could work if you are a real scumbag. Roosh’s advice seems to be mostly a How to Date Rape Women and Get Away with It manual. And Roosh is indeed a date rapist. That’s for sure. And boy does he hate women.

You hear a lot of players and womanizers give precisely this advice on how to get women and deal with them. They claim it works fantastic. Some of the worse ones even say that they beat and hit women, and this works wonders. None of this has ever made the tiniest bit of sense to me, and I’m pretty experienced with women.

As a man who has done quite well with women in his life, I would say that acting like a sociopath/narcissist in the sense you are talking about is just not going to work. I’ve never gotten women by talking down to them like they are idiots. Lots of players say the secret to women is to treat them like shit, but I’ve had many girlfriends, and that’s never worked for me. I don’t get it. How to guys treat women like shit and get away with it?

As it is, women in my life are always accusing me of insulting them or not caring about them or being mean or hurting their feelings. That is, being an asshole. However, I am generally not even trying to do that! I actually try very hard not to insult women or put them down too much, but it seems like women are paranoid and always reading insults into places where they are not intended. To the extent that I have treated women poorly in this way, albeit usually unintentionally, it’s never been anything but a disaster. I don’t get it. How do misogynists get women? How does insulting a woman get you laid? How does talking down to a woman make her want to go out with you?

Color me mystified.
