Link fusillade for 30 January 2017: subjective experience, anonymity, sex, and 20 violent criminals

Has Isegoria discovered a cheap and effective means of psychoanalysis?

Psychoanalysts harm society in very damaging ways. Then again, Dr. Peterson uses the phrase “bottom stratum of reality,” which is like catnip to me, so I can’t possibly resist taking a lot.

You may recall that this is the shrink who wrote about two competing visions of “telos,” objective truth, and social justice:

How can I resist a guy who defines “phainesthai”?

The snake oil salesman shrink has done a TED talk, so he must be enlightened, right?

ETP claims that “geographic nationalist” is kind of an oxymoron.

Hat tip to B’Man for pointing out ETP:

Also, B’Man is taking a little break:

Anyone who doesn’t like the fact that I work anonymously, contact me and I will remove your link from my page.

I want to know who the potential doxxers and “purists” are and I want to separate myself from them and never feature anything by them again.

Leave a comment or write me an email and I will quickly remove that link.

I ONLY want to link to those who want the link.

This will be my last post for a while as I take a break and re-evaluate the rationale for this blog and my activism in whole.

I hope B’Man gets back into action soon, because he frequently directs my attention to important webpages that I would not have found without him, such as:

Dalrock sounds the alarm:

The financial site “Wolf Street” has published the following:

…total aggregate revenues as reported under GAAP by the 30 companies that are today in the DJIA. This includes Apple, for example, though it only joined in 2015; and it no longer includes AT&T. For 2016, these 30 companies reported aggregate revenues of $2.69 trillion. That’s down 4.4% from 2011 and the worst year since 2010

revenues in 2016 were lower than they had been in 2008. Only 2009 and 2010 were lower. So in terms of revenues, 2016 was for the Dow components ex-Apple the worst year since 2010! And this despite the five-year binge in acquisitions!

Of the 30 companies in the Dow, 16 sported declining revenues in 2016. And 17 sported declining revenues over the two-year span since 2014! Only two of them are oil companies!

TL;DR: The Dow index is at 20,000, but that is propaganda, not a realistic sign of economic strength.

Customs agents care more about their president than judges:
The ACLU is getting “multiple reports” that federal customs agents are siding with President Trump — and willfully ignoring a Brooklyn federal judge’s demand that travelers from seven Muslim countries not be deported from the nation’s airports.

From Henderson’s Left Hook:
Central Asia produces 75% of the world’s opium. According to the UN, the surge in opium production in the region coincided with the disintegration of the Soviet Union, which was “encouraged” by the Reagan Administration and the CIA.

It also coincided with the Four Horsemen’s Caspian Sea oil boom. Opium production in Afghanistan reached 4,600 metric tons in 1998-1999. Production has spread north with Islamic fundamentalists now fighting in Uzbekistan, Chechnya and Dagestan.

In 1999 the Taliban announced a crack down on opium production in Afghanistan. The move must have angered the CIA and their Turkish Gray Wolves allies, whose smuggling routes mirror that of the Caspian Sea oil pipeline recently opened for business through Turkey. With new US-puppet Prime Minister Hamid Karzai in place in Kabul and oil flowing from Central Asia, the region will continue to be heroin central. Asia Times writer Pepe Escobar terms the entire region “Drugistan”. [340]

A long, boring list of bad guys from Jeff Sessions:
en. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest warns.
“Despite a clear nexus between immigration and terrorism, and warnings from top officials in his own Administration about their inability to properly vet refugees, President Obama remains in denial about the dangers that his policies pose to the United States,” Sessions said in a statement Wednesday.

To Sessions, Obama’s refugee plan is reckless and fails to consider the real perils of a refugee flow that has already been infiltrated by terrorists in the past. The Alabama lawmaker said, “the Obama Administration leads the United States down a dangerous path — admitting as many refugees as possible from areas of the world where terrorists roam freely, and granting a temporary amnesty to Syrians living in the United States illegally. And contrary to the assertions made by many, the potential for future terror activity is real.”

According to Sessions, the administration should be seeking out locations of refuge for displaced migrants close to their homelands so that they might be able to return once the conflict is over. Instead, however, the Obama Administration has pursued a plan of further displacement, promising to bring at least 10,000 Syria refugees to U.S. shores by the end of this fiscal year — as Sessions noted, a nearly 500 percent increase over FY 2015 when just 1,600 Syrian refugees were admitted to the U.S.

“This radical increase places the safety and security of the American people at risk, there will surely be consequences,” Sessions said.

As of August 9, 2016 the administration has already admitted 61,232 refugees this fiscal year, including 8,114 from Syria, 7,322 from Iraq, 7,067 from Somalia, 2,838 from Iran, and 1,924 from Afghanistan. By all accounts the Obama administration will achieve, if not exceed its goal of 10,000 Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. this year and pursue a plan to resettle another 100,000 refugees in the U.S. next year.

Sessions notes that the threat of infiltration by terrorists is real, pointing out that at least 40 people admitted to the U.S. as refugees since September 11, 2001 have been implicated in terrorism.

“Some were admitted as adults, others as children, but these cases refute the false assertion that those admitted to the United States as refugees never engage in terrorism. But because these facts do not fit within his worldview, President Obama rejects them. And in so doing, he rejects his sacred oath for what he perceives as political gain,” Sessions said.

Republicans and top national security officials in the Obama Administration like FBI Director James Comey, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, have expressed serious concerns about the government’s ability to vet Syrian refugees. Despite the warnings, the Obama Administration has continued to plow forward with the plans.

“Plainly, there is no way to properly vet these refugees,” Sessions added. “Our intelligence databases are only as good as the information that goes into them — meaning that the absence of derogatory information in our systems about an individual does not mean that admitting that individual carries no risk. Nor do we have an effective method to screen refugees for the possibility of potential post-entry radicalization.”

Sessions concluded by stressing, “Good public policy puts the safety and security of this country first. There is no doubt that this continuous, dramatic increase in refugees from areas of the world where terrorists roam freely will endanger this nation. We must change course.”
