AMD shreds Intel

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Offers Incredible Linux Performance.

If you are looking for the absolute best single-socket workstation performance for Linux, there has already been the Threadripper 3970X that easily outperforms the likes of the Core i9 10980XE as Intel's top-end HEDT product, but now the Threadripper 3990X is shipping. The Threadripper 3990X is AMD's first 64-core / 128-thread desktop/workstation processor and will love your multi-threaded workloads from code compilation to content creation.

We had dual core and quad core processors for consumers for almost a decade. Then, in the span of three years, we went all the way to 64-core CPUs thanks to AMD. 

When taking the geometric mean of the benchmarks for this article today, The Threadripper 3990X came out overall 26% faster than the dual Xeon Platinum 8280, which is a very nice accomplishment since such a configuration currently retails for $20,000 USD worth of processors alone.

The AMD CPU that retails for $4,000 is 26% faster than the $20,000 Intel processors setup. That's shocking. Also, it's amazing that AMD is offering their product at such a low price considering it's stunning performance. One outcome is certain: Intel will lose significant market share in 2020.

Here are the results for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X vs. Intel Xeons on different Windows setups. The results are very bad for Intel.


End the oppression

Students go under crushing debt to hear this bullshit:

The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond’s “Undoing Racism” workshop, hosted on various college campuses and other community locations across the nation, works to end systemic racism and institutional oppression.

One way it apparently does that is by telling attendees “all white people are racist.”

If that is true, then all colored people should leave White countries. Why subject yourself to any further suffering?


Negro magic cancelled

Barnes & Noble is withdrawing a planned line of famous literature reissued with multicultural cover images that has been met with widespread criticism on social media.

"We acknowledge the voices who have expressed concerns about the Diverse Editions project at our Barnes & Noble Fifth Avenue store and have decided to suspend the initiative," Barnes & Noble announced in a statement Wednesday.

The author Adriana Herrera had called the books, scheduled to be launched this week, “the classics in blackface.”

This entire brain-dead debacle was quite entertaining. The whole point of diversity is to fuck White people. Here, they were using diversity to make more money for the non-colored folks! That's NOT okay!


A sad, old woman

Crazy Nancy should spend some time in the gym:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch.

Oh, that strong, independent woman! Unfortunately, it didn't help:

She ended up overexerting herself, and 54 different bones in her hands and wrists immediately snapped during the ripping. Fourteen different muscles were also strained. She fell to the ground in pain, nearly getting trampled by Mike Pence and President Trump, who pretended not to see her.

Sad!


The Short Squeeze of 2020

Tesla going to the moon:

"Tesla shorts were down $2.89 billion in ... losses in 2019 and are down $8.31 billion in ... losses so far in 2020, including $2.47 billion on today's price move," S3 Partners analyst Ihor Dusaniwsky said in a research note.

Tesla stock price at the beginning of this year was $430. It's now at $945. Those who bought calls made an absolute killing. Those who bought puts are crying.


Malignant Dissemblers

Isn't it strange that the media doesn't call them on what they constantly lecture us about and how they live?

Free, government-run healthcare for everyone!
Go to private hospitals with superior service.

People should use public transportation!
Get driven around in luxury cars and fly in private jets.

All children should go to public schools!
Send their kids to elite private schools.

The rich need to pay their fair share!
Make millions and shield their wealth.

No one needs an AR-15. Ban them!
They say that while surrounded by guards with ... AR-15s!


Feel the Bern!

The Supreme Dark Lord:

Creepy Joe was destroyed by Bernie Sanders, so they need more time to produce fake ballots and destroy enough of the Sanders votes. And given today's Democrats can't run either an impeachment or a caucus, who could possibly imagine that they can run the federal government successfully?

Apparently, Socialist Sanders got nearly one-third of the votes and Creepy Joe's low total didn't even meet the minimum criteria!

This vote is very important ...

Er, maybe not!


Just savage

“When I am president,” Warren told the press, “I immediately will initiate Order 66 and send an elite task force to hunt down and end all disinformation.” Many confused Boomers are expected to end up in prison from this, but Warren explained that the main targets will be the writers of The Babylon Bee, who are to be hunted down and tried for high to medium treason.

Warren will feel the Bern before she even gets the chance to face Trump.


The Socialist Mind

The rich vs. poor rhetoric is alive and well. All for the impossible quest of equality. One can't make the poor into life-long millionaires. The only way to achieve "equality" is to destroy the rich. Equal misery for everyone! Of course, the people who make these decisions enjoy their power and luxuries.

"No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars," Ocasio-Cortez said, receiving applause. "I'm not here to villainize and to say billionaires are inherently morally corrupt. ... It's to say that this system that we live in, life in capitalism always ends in billionaires."

Ocasio-Cortez said billionaires make their money "off the backs" of "undocumented people," "black and brown people being paid under a living wage" and "single mothers."

She addressed a hypothetical "widget" billionaire in her remarks.

"You didn't make those widgets, did you? Because you employed thousands of people and paid them less than a living wage to make those widgets for you," Ocasio-Cortez said. "You didn't make those widgets. You sat on a couch while thousands of people were paid modern-day slave wages, and in some cases real modern-day slavery."

It's always amusing when Leftists bash the rich and wealthy. Here, Cortez accuses billionaires of paying "slave wages" and slavery. Yet, she can't name one person. 

Bill Gates? Michael Dell? Michael Bloomberg? Elon Musk? Steven Spielberg? Who are these evil, corrupt billionaires? Should they not be in jail for their heinous crimes? Why doesn't the righteous and morally pure Cortez use her political power to identify the barbarous billionaires and then put them behind bars?


No info for you!

Sounds like ... diversity.


Those horrible White people!

Coming this May to New York City: The National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education, or NCORE, will feature a “pre-conference” session led by an educational consultant who believes being on time is a form of “white supremacy.” [...]

Hackman is a former professor of multicultural education at St. Cloud University who, at 2016’s “White Privilege Conference,” informed attendees that “the racial narrative of White” includes “making sure you’re not tardy.” Individualism, honesty, discipline, and rigor were other factors.

HR: Oh, Mr. Chan, you're fired!

Mr. Chan: What!? Why?

HR: You're always on time...[points finger at Mr. Chan and glares]...White supremacist!

But wait, there's more!

What's normal for the entire human race is now worthy of public condemnation?

Bonus: How to spot a Nazi in 2020?


The Greatest Stumbler

The Atlantic: Donald Trump Stumbles Into a Foreign-Policy Triumph.

At a briefing in London on Monday, I asked a panel of RUSI staffers whether, given that assessment, they considered the air strike a triumph for the president. No one on the panel demurred. Michael Stephens, a former British diplomat who is now a research fellow at RUSI, told me later that it was clear how badly the Iranians had been hurt, both in practical military terms and in pure national pride. “This has fundamentally changed the game and opens up the space for de-escalation,” he said. “It was a sucker punch which has scrambled their understanding of how the Americans might react in future. In the short term, it’s a triumph for Trump.”

Every option available to Iran now comes with huge risks, and the lack of serious response—so far—has damaged the Iranian regime’s reputation. The recent accidental downing of Ukrainian International Airlines Flight PS752 has also hit it hard, revealing a frightening incompetence as well as a limited retaliatory power.

Trump stumbled with getting the new NAFTA deal. He's also stumbling with the recent Chinese trade deal. He'll likely stumble in November by getting another four years in office. The guy is just the best at stumbling. BIGLY.


Another sign of the decline

I thought that it didn't look too bad--and that's when my late-night brain registered that there are twenty pods in that one room. Each jail bed tiny pod starts at the low price of $1,000 per month. What a dark and depressing way to live.

Chris Elsey of Manhattan, Kansas-based Elsey Partners is planning to erect two apartment buildings on the site of current parking lots at 1500 15th St. and 401 S. Van Ness Ave. in the city’s trendy Mission District. Each would include 88 windowless “sleeping pods” located underground.

Residents could expect to pay between $1,000 and $1,375 a month for the privilege of bunking down in one of the pods, which measure just 50 square feet each.


Halaal Lies

Sheikh Salem Salameh, member of Hamas Legislative Council and Deputy Head of the Palestine Islamic Scholars Association, said in a December 26, 2019 interview on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) that it is inconceivable to Muslims that there are other Muslims who recognize and normalize relations with Israel.

Many Muslims have legitimate reasons to loathe modern-day America. For instance, the continued wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria have destroyed the lives, families, and homes of millions of people. Their abhorrence can't be faulted. However, it's wicked to manufacture false causes for increasing hatred against the United States. For example:

"We warn the Muslims of what U.S. President Washington himself warned. [Washington] killed the Indians and the Muslims, because the Indians and the owners of that land were Muslims. It has been proven that they were Muslims, and that they had mosques. This is why they killed them.

Can't wait to hear the next interiew in which it's revealed that the US killed millions in the Vietnam War because ... they were Muslims!


The Halaal Defense

Reeaz Khan raped and murdered a 92-years-old woman in New York:

Khan told detectives, “He fell down, his belt broke, his pants fell down and his penis fell near her vagina,” the prosecutor, Joseph Grasso, said in court.

Muslims have a serious quality control issue with their belts.

At that point, something came over him, Khan claimed. “Defendant then stated that he did lift up her skirt and he tried to put his penis inside of her,” the prosecutor added.

Horrible belt.


The Z-baby cries

Vox Day:

The Z-man is not entirely devoid of ideas, and I have occasionally linked to his more insightful posts, but the following comment should suffice to demonstrate why he's simply not someone that anyone can take seriously as an intellectual or even a commentator.

The Z-baby is a bizarre, little doofus. He is making utterly false statements. Vox continues:

Nevertheless, don't correct him. Don't set the record straight. Don't provide him with any proof of what actually happened at all - and I know that literally hundreds of you have it in your possession.

In a follow up post:

Uncle John's Band put it rather well on SocialGalactic: The success of UA has been the snake revealer. The sort of scum who would rather cry in their permitted corners of the status quo than see the change they pretend to want.

Yup. So many on the Right love to cry like little bitches in their safe spaces. How do they react when Men of Action come along to fight the relevant battles? Forget helping or getting out of the way. They cowardly snipe at those Men! Is it really that hard to give credit to the fighters who are smarter, more competent, and successful?


The Craven Mullahs

The malicious Mullahs are really scared:

Iranians will chant “Death to America” as long as Washington continues its hostile policies, but the slogan is directed at President Donald Trump and U.S. leaders, not the American nation, Iran’s supreme leader said on Friday.

Stephen Green has a simple question about that:

SO THEY’VE BEEN HATING ON TRUMP SINCE 1979?

Woke since 1979!


Persian pussies

A military reader of Vox Day shared his take on the missile barrage by Iran.

The Iranian foreign minister tweets:

"Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched," Zarif tweeted. "We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression."

The Iranians basically broke some furniture in retaliation for the killing of their general and then said, "Please, don't hit us back." This totally jives with what Vox Day has said. Though, I'm surprised that Iran would be so explicit about it.


The Halaal-Woke Axis

The gold-plated shithole knows how to be subversive:

AJ+ specializes in racially divisive videos intended to foster outrage among liberal Blacks, with titles like “How Trump Plans To Keep America White,” and “Trump’s Racism,” which gets points for brevity, if not accuracy. A video titled “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome” appeared on the Instagram account of an extremely popular Black celebrity with over 3 million followers.

[...] AJ+ doesn’t limit itself to race-baiting; there isn’t a far-left talking point that AJ+ hasn’t created videos to promote. Climate Change? They’ve got you covered! Radical transgender ideology? Check. Abortion? They’ve got a trans man’s take on it! The so-called “epidemic” of police violence against unarmed African-Americans? No problem! Reparations for slavery? Sure!

Perhaps, Qatar can look into ending slavery in their country before they start talking about its horrible legacy in the US.

“There are more than 4,000 people who died as a result of being forced to work for a long time in temperatures of 51 to 56 degrees Celcius, which is almost impossible for human beings to work in. This is a violation of human rights. It’s a violation of employees rights,” said Amjad Taha, who authored the book The Deception of the Arab Spring. He is one of several Arab journalists who were targeted and hacked as part of an extensive operation allegedly carried out by Qatar, and he has consistently spoken out against the Gulf nation’s human rights violations.

Taha said some of those workers are from North Korea. “The Qataris bring workers from North Korea; with the cooperation of the North Korean regime, they work there for free, and their salary is being given to the North Korean regime, not to the workers. They pay the North Korean regime their salary. So, the worker doesn’t even receive a salary; he just works, get a little bit of food and that’s about it.”


Those horrible White suprema-, er, wait

The Colored Coalition of the Left is working really nice:

The most recent case of revolving-door justice came Saturday morning, with the release, with no bail, of a woman charged with punching and cursing at three Orthodox women, ages 22, 26 and 31, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn at dawn the day before.

The accused assailant, Tiffany Harris, was hauled in handcuffs before a Brooklyn judge on 21 menacing, harassment and attempted assault charges.

She's not White. So, the Left will simply ignore the inconvenient story.

As she stood before a judge in Brooklyn Criminal Court with the hood to a navy blue jacket over her head, Harris was in familiar territory.

She still has an open harassment and assault case on the Brooklyn docket from November 2018.

And last month, she was sentenced to no jail time for felony criminal mischief in Manhattan, court records show — a case for which she had repeatedly failed to make court appearances.

Muslims vs. Jews ... Blacks vs. Jews ... Asians vs. Jews ... Blacks vs. Hispanics ... America is going through interesting times.


Robert "The Sham" Reich

Reich is trying to be a clever demagogue. Note that he didn't say that 60% of the rich people inherited their wealth; only that 60% of the wealth is inherited.

Here's a scenario:

  • A city has 100 millionaires.
  • 80 of them inherited $0. Their wealth is worth exactly $1 million each.
  • 19 of them got exactly $1 million inheritances.
  • 1 lucky bastard got a mammoth $101 million dollars from his rich uncle.
  • Conclusion: 60% of the wealth was inherited in this city. Yet, only 20% of rich people got inheritances!

Of course, when it comes to those horrible, eeevil rich people, perception and reality are often different:

We recently released the findings of the largest study of millionaires ever conducted, with 10,000 people participating. We also surveyed the general population, and we found out that 74% of Millennials believe millionaires inherited their money. So do 52% of Baby Boomers.

Our study of millionaires blows that theory out of the water. Only 21% of millionaires received any inheritance at all. Just 16% inherited more than $100,000. And get this: only 3% received an inheritance at or above $1 million.

So, four out of five millionaires inherited $0! Not only is it a lie to say otherwise but it also diminishes their efforts over decades.

We gave the millionaires in our study a list of items that could contribute to someone becoming a millionaire, and then we asked them to rank them. What ranked number one, beating out everything else? Financial discipline. What ranked number two? Saving consistently.

Here in Canada, there have been stories of people who worked for many decades and consistently added money to their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). When they retired, they had over a million dollars in their RRSPs. By design, one can only contribute to an RRSP after earning an income. An old rich dude who never worked would have precisely $0 in his RRSP.

Instead of showcasing the teachers, doctors, and engineers who worked and saved to become millionaires, schmucks like Reich demoralize their audiences by telling them that they can't make it.


The slow death of the US

Hatred of White people is the glue that holds the Colored Coalition together. Once Whites are a minority, the dominant non-White racial group asserts its power and principles. That's when the lower-level coloreds realize that "Hmm, those White people weren't so bad ..."
