Titanic Tourist Vessel Vanishes In North Atlantic

Have you heard about the tourist submarine that went missing while touring the ruins of the Titanic? It was led by an “inspirational” team of young people of color.


“A tourist submersible carrying five people has gone missing while on a diving trip to the wreck of the Titanic, sparking a massive days-long search and rescue operation in the North Atlantic.

The latest: Remotely operated vehicles (ROV) were deployed for the missing sub after Canadian aircraft “detected underwater noises in the search area,” per a U.S. Coast Guard statement early Wednesday. “Those ROV searches have yielded negative results but continue,” the statement added.

The data findings have been shared with U.S. Navy experts for further analysis that’ll be used to assist in the search for the sub that’s known as “the Titan,” according to the Coast Guard.

A U.S. Coast Guard official said at a Tuesday afternoon news conference that the vessel that went missing on Sunday had an estimated 40 hours of air left from the sub’s capacity to hold up to 96 hours of oxygen. …”

Charles Murray recently pointed this out on Twitter.

“At a casual glance, the recent cascades of American disasters might seem unrelated. In a span of fewer than six months in 2017, three U.S. Naval warships experienced three separate collisions resulting in 17 deaths. A year later, powerlines owned by PG&E started a wildfire that killed 85 people. The pipeline carrying almost half of the East Coast’s gasoline shut down due to a ransomware attack. Almost half a million intermodal containers sat on cargo ships unable to dock at Los Angeles ports. A train carrying thousands of tons of hazardous and flammable chemicals derailed near East Palestine, Ohio. Air Traffic Control cleared a FedEx plane to land on a runway occupied by a Southwest plane preparing to take off. Eye drops contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria killed four and blinded fourteen.

While disasters like these are often front-page news, the broader connection between the disasters barely elicits any mention. America must be understood as a system of interwoven systems; the healthcare system sends a bill to a patient using the postal system, and that patient uses the mobile phone system to pay the bill with a credit card issued by the banking system. All these systems must be assumed to work for anyone to make even simple decisions. But the failure of one system has cascading consequences for all of the adjacent systems. As a consequence of escalating rates of failure, America’s complex systems are slowly collapsing.

The core issue is that changing political mores have established the systematic promotion of the unqualified and sidelining of the competent. This has continually weakened our society’s ability to manage modern systems. At its inception, it represented a break from the trend of the 1920s to the 1960s, when the direct meritocratic evaluation of competence became the norm across vast swaths of American society. 

In the first decades of the twentieth century, the idea that individuals should be systematically evaluated and selected based on their ability rather than wealth, class, or political connections, led to significant changes in selection techniques at all levels of American society. The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) revolutionized college admissions by allowing elite universities to find and recruit talented students from beyond the boarding schools of New England. Following the adoption of the SAT, aptitude tests such as Wonderlic (1936), Graduate Record Examination (1936), Army General Classification Test (1941), and Law School Admission Test (1948) swept the United States. Spurred on by the demands of two world wars, this system of institutional management electrified the Tennessee Valley, created the first atom bomb, invented the transistor, and put a man on the moon. 

By the 1960s, the systematic selection for competence came into direct conflict with the political imperatives of the civil rights movement. During the period from 1961 to 1972, a series of Supreme Court rulings, executive orders, and laws—most critically, the Civil Rights Act of 1964—put meritocracy and the new political imperative of protected-group diversity on a collision course.  …”

Here in Montgomery, an incompetent black woman at the local airport was sucked into the engine of a jet on New Year’s Eve. This is what is going on at scale now radiating from government outwards.


    • As the last of boomers retire by the end of this decade, America will have a shortage of WHITE workers, then the wheels come off.

  1. I’ll guess most of the commenters here are aware that I-95 in the northeast was severed, a week-and-a-half ago, when a tank-truck carrying gasoline exploded at the bottom of an ordinary off-ramp, here in northeast Philadelphia. Economically, for the U.S., that’s a kind of spinal-cord severing—though remediable, of course.

    As I was reading this post of yours, Mr. W., and looking through the Palladium article you linked, I was reminded that I’d wondered whether this I-95 incident was a diversity disaster. Hard to say, because the driver was experienced and might simply have, say, had a medical episode that can’t ever be recognized. (His remains had to be identified via dental records.) Still—I’ve wondered.

    • ” I’d wondered whether this I-95 incident was a diversity disaster.”

      A secondary, non-obvious, consequence of divershity hires is this,
      the low productivity and high F…up rate of divershity hires causes WHITES to be overworked and pushed beyond safe limits.

      Shove the extra work and heavy burden onto WHITEY, he’s a chump.

  2. Were they drinking Bud Light on the way down, down, down? Well, they wanted to see the Titanic, now they get to join the Titanic, no extra charge either. Fuck ’em. They wanted diversity, they got diversity; they just got enriched.

    It’s only about 13,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic. Maybe if they hold their breaths long enough they can swim to the surface. Just trying to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

  3. Not really laughing, more like shaking the head almost to facepalm.
    Like Rand said you can ignore reality all you want but not the consequences.
    The inspirational 50 year old white guy David Lochridge tried to warn them and he was fired.
    Remember the shuttle disaster and engineers giving warning, it is wise to listen.
    Brace yourself for the South African style crisis of competency that is coming.
    Enjoy running water, lights on, internet, while you still can.

  4. It’s Y man’s fault……….they hired these diversities to go and just DIEEE alone in the ocean! How do we live with ourselves?!

  5. Political Correctness is our state imposed, Anti-White religion. Political Correctness means 2 + 2 = 5 and the truth is no defense.

  6. Agree that Diversity is making society in general less competent, in many cases incompetent. Skeptical that in this specific case, the loss of the Titan was caused by Diversity. Just because its company posted a photo of its “power-girls” & genuflected rhetorically against older white males does not constitute solid evidence. White males are largely responsible for creating technological masterpieces through their genius & hard work (American space program), as well as destroying them (Apollo 1 & space shuttle disasters) through hubris & stubbornness. That’s probably the case here.

      • Yep. That’s the difference between the Russian moon program & the American. The Russian moon rocket blew up. The American moon rocket (designed by von Braun & his team of Germans) worked.

        Btw, un-fun fact: American school children are now taught that the success of the first phase of the American manned space program (Project Mercury), especially John Glenn’s orbital flight, was due to black female mathematicians & engineers (about as grotesque a lie as could be conceived), & never learn about the decisive German contribution to America’s space success, which has been thrown down the memory hole, or even – e.g., in a recent “history” book by a Jewish female (Operation Paperclip, by Annie Jacobsen) – viciously attacked & claimed to have been unnecessary.

  7. Is there any way possible that we can put together enough money to restart the Anglo Saxon/ Celtic homeland which is what America was, until I would guess some time after the second world war. Surely there some people of means who don’t want their children and grandchildren to grow up and live in South Africa, take everything that functions and works, flush it down the drain, just to placate some insane guilt trip.
