Logo Annual Awards awarded by stallinga.org


These are the awards attributed by stallinga.org (Note, stallinga.org has never been awarded anything and will not accept any reward from anybody; don't bother). Also we suspect the receivers of these awards couldn't care less about these rewards. Well, stallinga.org doesn't care if they care or not.
The awards are attributed somewhere in the beginning of the year and are somewhat about the past year, ideally the last calendar year, but not necessarily. And not all awards have to be attributed each year.

Glenn Swart
Making fun of the (fake) photograph of the black hole. Data engineers used some 5 petabytes of signals to come up with a 'photo' (i.e., not a writing of photons), which for sure you have all seen in the news. Swart made this parody that summarizes it all:
LOL black hole

Science

Denis Rancourt
Well, with science bascially being dead, Mr. Rancourt manages to fully destroy the narrative of the regime. First the climate and now covid19. As he names himself his own blog "Denis Rancourt denying everything", truly in the spirit of science.
Fyodor Dostoyevski
Book

Larken Rose
The most important book you will ever read about your freedom, "The Most Dangerous Superstition" by Larken Rose. In it he meticulously dissects the concept of authority and government, hence the title; your superstition that government has a natural authority.
Johan Cruijff
Sportsman

Diego Maradonna
There was no sports in 2020. But this legendary football player died. The award is not awarded for his Hand of God (goal against England in the mundial), but for his overall spirit and contribution to the sport. He lived football. To show you what is meant by this, watch this epic video of him passing the ball through the legs of one of those colorless bureaucrats in a typical sports arena corridor. He simply follows his instincts. Football, football, football:

Chutzpah

Joe Biden
"Building back better". Joe Biden elected as new president of the U.S. His chutzpah is having voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump for allegedly using a quid pro quo in Ukraine, after he himself used a quid pro quo to get his son off the hook from criminal investigation in Ukraine.
Plato
Politician

Thierry Baudet
Having been victim of a libel campaign by the regime (using the oldest trick in the book, accuse your enemy of anti-semitism), Dutch politician Baudet came out vainglorious. In an emergency referendum he retook power of his party in a landslide vote of support for him and his policies. Now Baudet can build back better!

Mattias Desmet
Jensen
Robert Jensen will get the vlogger of the year award for his Dutch vlogs De Jensen Show.

Yet, the most informative vlog came from Prof. Mattias Desmet, where he describes the psychology of covid19 measures and totalitarian regimes in general:

Word
covidiot
A covidiot is somebody that believes the narrative of the regime face value, without criticizing or further study. Moreover, a covidiot is willing to publicly shame others who do not obey so easily. That makes them the foot soldiers of the regime.
Julian Assange
Journalism
Karel van Wolferen
Starting a new journal, Gezond Verstand, in the Netherlands, he is portrayed as a 'conspiracy thinker'. Yet he does not give up. Truly innovating journalism. "Journalism is writing what they don't want you to write. The rest is propaganda" (George Orwell).

Science

The Connolies
Inventing the term 'pervection' to show how energy absorbed in the atmosphere gets distributed in it, seemingly against the laws of thermodynamics
Fyodor Dostoyevski
Book

Andrzej Lobaczewski
"Political Ponerology" explaining how the world is led by psychopaths. No, seriously!
Johan Cruijff
Sportsman

Roger Federer Tennis player; for still being out there playing among the best

Vlog(ger)
Deep Thoughts Radio
Interesting conversations in one-hour (one-cigar) monologues
Word
Influencer
A person that, by trying to be 'good' (ein Gutmensch), while merely being a useful idiot, is being used to propagate the political agenda through the halo effect this person has. Examples are Leonardo diCaprio and George Clooney, fighting for the climate, resp. for democracy in Syria, accomplishing the exact opposite, namely power to the elite and eternal wars by supporting terrorists (White Helmets).
Julian Assange Journalism
Max van der Werff and Yana Yerlashova
For investigating and reporting the downing of flight MH17 in Ukraine.

Science
Ari Brynjolfsson
Actually has the audacity to say that the universe is not expanding and the red shift is caused by intergalactic plasma. Not commenting on whether it is true or not, the award goes to the audacity, something that is missing in our world of pseudoscience. The guy has to publish in ArXiv. That says enough
Sportsman
Ronnie O'Sullivan
Achieving his 1000th century break in snooker is historical
Book
Daniel Kahneman
"Thinking, fast and slow". How decisions are made in the economy. Once you realize people want to be compensated for taking on risk (investing), the economy becomes a very simple system to analyze.
Chutzpah
Donald Tusk
After the attack on Notre Dame in Paris he actually had the audacity to say that "this will unite us". That while what was attacked was the icon of Christianity. Christianity is what defines Europe (Europe=Christianity and Christianity=Europe is the idea since approximately the time the Notre Dame was built). A chutzpah because Donald Tusk and the European Union under his command are importing Muslims as fast as can, thus destroying that what unites us
Politician
Thierry Baudet
The 'populist' from the Netherlands. Putting the necessary dialectical contradictions back in politics. Absolutely essential and wonderful to observe

Exposing the empty-headed green party people (and also using the word of the year)

Word
Virtue signalling
Most politicians, media, socialites, academics are busy in 'virtue signalling'. Showing each other how virtuous they are, one trying to outdo the other. For instance in Trump bashing, always saying what a terrible person he is. What factually is correct is irrelevant; it is about signaling to the others how good they are. They are the modern version of the Gutmensch. An example is trying to remove the "horrible regime of Assad", while by trying to do so they are the most horrific mass murderers ever having set foot on this planet

Science
Erik Verlinde
From the University of Amsterdam, working on Dark Energy and String Theory. In spite of these being two absurd subjects, Verlinde manages to get away with it and actually manages to antagonize the established science community, which is always something laudable
Sportsman
Max Verstappen
Putting the fun factor back in Formula 1 (where it was becoming just a matter of technology)
Book
Nassim Taleb
"The Black Swan". It massacres the idea of analyzing reality as a probabilistic system. We like to see the world as a coin-flipping system, especially modeled with Gaussian distributions, but that is all nonsense. All 'retrodiction' (predicting the past).
Chutzpah
Dick Cheney
Getting a bust in the Capitol for having combated terrorism, while being one of the biggest instigators of terrorism in the world (see for instance his role in 9/11)
Politician
Donald Trump
Getting so much totally unfounded criticism and still continuing is admirable. His politics are as bad as that of the others, but just the fact that the establishment hates him, makes him deserve this award
Vlog(ger)
Ken O'Keefe
Nobody can rant as inhibited as O'Keefe. Especially when he is on the lose about the "Jewish Supremacist Talmudic Satanic Pedo Bankster Cult". It takes some guts to say such things in our society and without people like O'Keefe, our freedom of speech would be eroded. Just for that reason he wins the Vlog(ger) of the Year Award:

Word
Defenestration
The (political) act of throwing somebody out of the window. Just the idea that a special word already existed for that act, totally prepared for the current political situation, makes it the word of the year. Let the defenestrations begin !!

Life time award!
Chutzpah
The Khazars For having invented  the Yiddish word 'chutzpah' and using it to smear-campaign others, which is a chutzpah! :-)

Vladimir Putin
Life time award! When he took power with the help of the oligarchs, the next day he invited them to his office and said to them "thank you for your help. That was yesterday. This is now!" and then took back control of his country.

"Why Does Faith Deserve Respect?". The first video blogger that defined the entire genre of a 'rant'. Absolutely enjoyable to watch and listen how every word seems to be selected carefully but very naturally:
