Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are so out of the news now that people not listening to the mold grow in their sweltering bedrooms probably think these events had something to do with the Confederate defeat. Both The New York Times and the WashPo are much more concerned this morning with doings on the planet Saturn, and the career moves of fashion icon Chelsea Manning, which is perhaps how things should be in Attention Deficit Nation. Standing by on developments there….

In the meantime, personally, I think it would be cruel to deport fully acculturated and Americanized young adults to Mexico and Central America. But there should be no question that it’s up to congress to figure out what to do about the DACA kids, and put it into coherent law. The Golden Golem of Greatness was correct to serve the ball into congress’s court. The suave and charming Mr. Obama only punted the action on that problem, and rather cynically too, I suspect, since he knew the next president would be stuck with it.

It’s hard to overcome the sentimental demagoguery this quandary fetches up. The so-called Dreamers are lately portrayed in the media as a monoculture of spectacularly earnest high-achievers, all potential Harvard grads, and future Silicon Valley millionaires working tirelessly to add value to the US economy. This, again personally, I doubt , and there’s also room to doubt that they are uniformly acculturated and Americanized as claimed by the journalists cherry-picking their stories to support the narrative that national borders and immigration laws are themselves cruel anachronisms that need to be opposed.

That Dem / Prog narrative has been suspiciously hypocritical for years — the insistence on referring to anybody here illegally as “undocumented,” as if their citizenship status was due to a mere clerical error, and also the obvious pandering for votes among the fast-growing Hispanic demographic by pretending that boundaries shouldn’t matter. Trump’s infamous “wall” is actually just a metaphor for a political faction that believes boundaries do matter, especially in law, where ambiguity is a vice.

That narrative is also at odds with the Left’s multicultural principle, since their plea for the DACA kids rests on the idea that they’ve assimilated successfully into the very American common culture that multiculturalism opposes. The DACA poster kids exhibited on the cable news networks speak English as fluently as Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon. Yet the Left so strenuously opposes the idea that speaking English correctly has any importance that they have allowed several generations of American black ghetto kids to fail academically in inner city schools where language skills are deliberately neglected to avoid offending the underspeeched. In fact, these days anyone who proposes that correct English speech matters in America is automatically branded with the scarlet “R” for racist. Except, now it matters where the Dreamers are concerned.

Deplorable as they may be, sunk in job loss, anomie, opiate addiction, obesity, and tattoo collecting, the Trumpsters have a legitimate case that they’ve been shoved out of work and livelihoods by immigrants both legal and illegal, and nobody should be surprised at the animus this generates. It’s right and proper that congress should resolve the fate of the DACA kids by legislation, and that they should actively address reform of the 1965 immigration act, too. Things have changed. This isn’t your great-grandad’s America of burgeoning factories beckoning to the downtrodden abroad. This is a sunset industrial economy not really knowing where its headed, but indulging in grandiose fantasies of perpetual robotic leisure where actual work is obsolete but somehow everybody gets rich.

Trump was also correct to set a six month deadline on for congress to act. It is clearly their responsibility to do so, and the deadline is exactly the sort of boundary in thought-and-act that this lazy-ass nation needs to begin accomplishing anything on its long and neglected to-do list of pressing issues.

    Fred Reed actually manages to shed more light than heat on the issue of DACA and the “Dreamers”.

    • K-Dog September 15, 2017 at 10:17 am #

      “They were working. Yes, doing their part as Americans: paying taxes to buy bombs to kill children in Syria. Now, says Trump, at least to the extent that it is possible to know what Trump says, they are illegal.”

      But Fred does prefer Corona over Budweiser. He has a bias.

      • CancelMyCard September 15, 2017 at 10:22 am #

        If anyone actually expects congress to do anything about this, they are seriously deluded.

        As with anything else of importance they need to deal with, this will be shoved under the carpet along with all the other neglected obligations they have ignored.

        • K-Dog September 15, 2017 at 10:37 am #

          It will be good for speeches and filibusterering. Some sort of compromise will be attached to yet another unrelated bill to help or hinder that bill’s journey through the legislative swamp. Some use will be found for the dreamer conundrum and impassioned faux concern with dripping emotion shall be expressed about the dreamers whenever a legislator has an ulterior motive to do so.

          Too bad they have a deadline, congress could kick this can down the road for years.

          • My Point of View September 15, 2017 at 1:38 pm #

            Exactly, DACA is good for speeches, filibusters, and posturing but mostly for fear mongering at election time, just like those Willie Horton ads from 1988. The implied message of those ads was that you’d better vote for Bush or them damned niggers are gonna gittya. Then, as now, the GOP ‘base’ ate it up, just like they did when Jesse Helms campaigned with: “do you want yer wife or dotter workin’ done the mill with them neegrahs.”

            Since our nation was founded, we’ve been divided and conquered by cynical hucksters who use race, age, religion, sex, nationality or other differences to play us for fools. Buffoons like Donald Trump, Jesse Helms, hundreds of others and untold thousands of preachers have milked us like cows for money and votes.

            Congress will do something but won’t solve the problem. If they solve it there’s no hot button issue they can use to play on us next election cycle. That’s why immigration, abortion, race, gun control and other topics will continue to bubble along on the surface, stirring the pot. Then, in the dark of night, buried deep in various innocuous sounding bills, congress will pass loophole after loophole for the 1% and other big money players.

            When congress talks, you may as well bend over.

            What rubbish. We were founded by Whites for Whites. Enough with the Marxist revisionism. There could have been no America without the conquest and dispossession of the indigenous inhabitants.

        • TiredOfTheTreadmill September 15, 2017 at 11:06 am #

          You likely are correct in claiming nothing will be done. The Republicans, who are now in charge, are not a party of leadership, but rather a party of ankle-biting, pains in the ass who complain endlessly about anyone trying to do something that doesn’t fit exactly with their ideology. Their ideology has become so narrow and out of touch with reality that nothing realistic that addresses any of our problems can fit inside that little box.

          Meanwhile, the Dems have become much more concerned that the process and language needed to address these important predicaments be all-inclusive and non-offensive to anyone in any way possible. Plus, some of these predicaments are scary and might induce feelings of anxiety. Are there enough safe spaces for refuge?

          What a pathetic lot of losers this nation has become.

    Can’t disagree with much in there, except maybe the sunset part. And I do think the press was right to publicize the Manning/Harvard connection. I’ll take a DACA, or any illegal alien, over Chelsea Manning any day.

    • K-Dog September 15, 2017 at 10:13 am #

      • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 11:06 am #

        America remains a very prosperous nation; hence the desire of DACAs to stay here, and everybody else who wants to come. Did I read yesterday that median US income is the highest ever, while poverty is dropping?

        That doesn’t mean everyting is perfect, but it does show we continue to move in the right direciton.

        • Beryl of Oyl September 15, 2017 at 11:51 am #

          It means that the already wealthy continue to get wealthier.

          • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 12:33 pm #

            There is some of that, to be sure. But the median (not the mean) suggests that the middle class is doing better too.

        • Walter B September 15, 2017 at 3:45 pm #

          No matter how bad America may get it will always remain so much better than so many places and I need not bother naming any of them to prove the point. As far as how things are going economically here, it is not possible for any of us to see the whole picture but the little picture is good some places and bad in others. A liberal neighbor returned from the trip her family took to Tennessee to watch the eclipse. In describing the journey she plainly stated that afterward it was easy to understand why America elected Donald Trump because everywhere along the way they came across boarded up store fronts, abandoned homes, and working age people sitting on street corners and park benches. Our West NJ Township is experiencing a new wave of home sales titled “pre-foreclosure”, and we already have 27 abandoned homes and a decaying tax base to work with. Being the Financial Liaison Committeeman, I am neck deep in such issues as well as how to find funds to pay off our substantial municipal debts as interest rates double every year. Not so much doom and gloom as dealing with reality and I am possibly the only elected official in the state that is willing to discuss the issue honestly.

          • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 9:52 pm #

            The surprising thing is that your neighbor, and so many others, were unaware of this before Trump won the election. I guess it’s a wakeup call they needed.

            I can’t say whether there are more distressed areas or less these days. There clearly has been a shift. I remember some pretty horrible city neighborhoods a few decades ago that are quite nice (depending on your definition of nice) these days.

            For whatever eason, and with many exceptions, there is a general preference for cities over rural areas. At some point that will shift, and some of those distressed towns will improve.

        • K-Dog September 16, 2017 at 1:51 pm #

          Absent a significant adjustment in the arrangements of how billions of humans conduct living, the earth will likely become uninhabitable for billions soon as the end of the century. The areas inhabitable will not be prosperous. That is preposterous.

          Public complacency in an era of resource depletion and climate change, seeped in a miasma of festering hate. That is a far, far bigger problem than any imagined fatalism which you seem to be on a mission to beat down.

          You are evil Graycenphil. You cultivate inaction in a time when humanity is in dire need of meaningful perception and action.

          “That doesn’t mean everyting is perfect, but it does show we continue to move in the right direciton.”

          You are a pied-piper piping us in the direction of death.

          • Graycenphil September 16, 2017 at 11:38 pm #

            You don’t know how electric cars work, you don’t know how much gas costs yet you are trying to predict the end of the century?

            And who said anything about inaction or complacency,besides you?

          • K-Dog September 17, 2017 at 12:46 pm #

            Brilliant. You just told a man who has designed a three phase drive for a brushless DC motor and who has a BSEE degree that was earned with honors that he does not know how electric cars work.

            You should have checked the file.

            It does not matter that you ignore and downplay what I said about complacency and inaction. You who cultivate it of course will try and act innocent while your hands drip blood with every keystroke you type.

          • Graycenphil September 17, 2017 at 2:34 pm #

            I didn’t ignore what you said. Notice the line where I ask “who said anyting about inaction or complacency”. Perhaps it was too subtle for you, but the point is that I never advocate inaction or complacency; quite the opposite, I practice advocacy and action myself, and encourage others to do so as well.

            It’s obvious you don’t have degree in English or history, so I’ll believe you have a BSEE degree. Still, I find it astounding that you know (or knew until I told you) so little about charging an electric car. This is not complex stuff.

          • K-Dog September 17, 2017 at 6:48 pm #

            Actually what is obvious is that you have no degree of any kind.

          • K-Dog September 17, 2017 at 6:51 pm #

            I ‘ll let you guess what my other degree is in. Or check the file.

          • Graycenphil September 17, 2017 at 9:23 pm #

            And you are wrong, yet again, about degrees. I don’t know what “file” you are talking about.

            And now it’s you ignoring what I said about complacency and inaction. Not surprising since you were wrong there too.

            I suppose your problem may just be seeing the big picture. You probably designed a three phase drive (or maybe you didn’t; I have no idea nor does it matter), yet you don’t know about home charging and how practical electric cars have become in the real world. You think you paid a low price for gas once, and paid a high price recently, but can’t see that the important question is how much everybody pays for gas.

            But you do seem to be learning from me, so there’s hope. I’ll continue to help you.

      I tend to separate Mannings gender dysphoria from being a whistle blower. Obama’s claim that his administration was the most transparent in history actually was no longer bullshit with Mannings and Snowdens revelations. The MIC and CIA want them dead so they must be heroes.

    The so-called Left’s “multicultural principle” is nothing more than a nakedly transparent agenda to keep illegals and quasi-illegals in country so that they can continue doing what they’re doing – landscaping; home repairs; nanny, maid, and elderly care services; etc. – on the cheap and with few or no extra benefits.

  4. Walter B September 15, 2017 at 10:13 am #

    Lazy ass nation, aye there’s the ticket Jim. This is fact my friend, not opinion and has been promulgated by an institution of so called “higher learning” (higher profits perhaps) that sold out and is selling out far too many of America’s youth into the pursuit of corner office, no work, sit back and relax high income jobs as their only desire. With far too many soon to enter the work force young people indoctrinated into the executive only mindset it opened the door for opening the borders to primitive unskilled laborers to “do the work that Americans refused to do”. Of course once the economy took a dump these indigents were soon to become handout seekers but as long as they can vote, well they have value to the sellouts in office don’t they?

    How can all this be addressed or repaired? I have no clue but I am open to enlightenment and will even be willing to help solve the problem should someone far wiser than I be able to conjure up a cure.

    • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 11:16 am #

      Good Morning Walter. I don’t totally disagree with you, but I don’t totally agree either. There is no shortage of lazy, entitled folks out there, but there is also no shortage of ambitious, bright, young people eager to work hard and build a great life. Sometimes I think the former get all the attention, and nobody notices the latter.

      I’m not wiser than you, but I do think a little more accountability and personal responsibility would help. That definitely includes our institutions of higher learning. Having just spent a year or so touring colleges with my high school senior daughter, I think there are a lot of great schools, with much to offer. That said, some of them have some serious issues. All of them, I’d say, have some issues. But at the end of the day, a well prepared kid who wants a good education will end up with one. Unfortunately, it will cost a fortune.

      FWIW, one of the schools we liked a lot was McGill Universtiy, up in Montreal. It seemed to have a lot less of the nonsense you see in some of our best colleges, yet offered all of the good stuff that a university should. And at a great price too. Anybody familiar with the place?

      • Walter B September 15, 2017 at 3:22 pm #

        My main point is that there is a huge disconnect between what is needed and viable as employment opportunities and what is being churned out by the “educational system”. I have always been an advocate of a system more like the European model where after high school, students are evaluated by their abilities and sent either to universities, technological schools or into the work force. There is no planning based on need. This country is not fulfilling the needs of the economy and the employers and has been profiting off of students that go on to working (if they are lucky) in completely unrelated fields. Loaded with debt too, I might add, but that is another issue.

        I am unfamiliar with the merits of any of the colleges out there and even my alma mater (West Point) has done a sad job at evolving IMHO and I have remained very in touch with them in order to make such a statement. Good hunting for your daughter.

        And BTW the statement that you made below about wanting to see at least a few white collar criminals being prosecuted and jailed (I prefer hanging) is absolutely the understatement of the year. The street level drug sellers that fill the prison system right now are a far better choice to be walking the streets than the banking/businessmen thieves that destroy entire cites and countless live by their thefts.

        • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 6:52 pm #

          I suppose that’s one place where personal responsibility might come into play. Anyone who chooses to major in basket weaving is free to do so, but they have no right to later complain that they can’t pay their student loans. That might force more of a connection between what is needed and what folks choose to study.

          Again, everyone is free and welcome to study whatever they like, but how many job openings do we expect for gender studioes majors?

          West Point is still a wonderful place. I encouraged my daughter to consider the Coast Guard Academy (that is closer to her temperment than West Point or Annapolis) but she is not interested.

    • ozone September 15, 2017 at 11:19 am #

      Not that hard, but we’ve got to take the “skimmers” and vote-hungry politicos out of the equation.

      Either jail and heavily fine those “job-creators” who hire workers that are here ILLEGALLY, or heavily fine and revoke their licenses to conduct business within the USA.

      Since “skimmers” and politicos will make sure to force their way into the equation and discussion by dint of their wealth and power, this will never be addressed in its bare simplicity and proper focus.

      Having done non-ass-sitting jobs all my life, I can tell you that actual citizens of duh USA can do the hard work just as well as anyone.

      Anecdote.
      I was asking someone about his 18-yr-old son:
      Me: So, you’re saying that your son is lazy?
      Friend: Nope, I’m saying my son is *fucking* lazy!

      (I don’t think the screen-staring from birth is helping anything either…)

      • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 12:40 pm #

        Agree about the screen staring. Computers are great, but too much of anything is no good.

        Jail sounds okay. It has always bothered me that white collar criminals get off so easily. Throw a few crooked bankers or stock manipulators into a real jail, and see what a great disincentive that creates for the next one. We’ll see if Martin Shkreli is as cocky after he gets out of the Brooklyn House of Detention.

        • skamander September 15, 2017 at 4:44 pm #

          Shkreli did not go to jail for his extensive fraud; he went for this:

          bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-08/u-s-says-shkreli-s-bail-should-be-revoked-as-he-poses-danger

          Defrauding the ill doesn’t count as a crime in your moving-in-the-right-direction amerika (extreme right, actually). All that matters is a silly statement against an oligarch. Pretty good direction there.

          What other whizz-dom do you have for us today, Gracie? Can’t wait to hear it. Do you know that I use your “arguments” in my (admittedly amateur, but nonetheless popular) stand-up comedy routines? So, let’s hear it.

          • Graycenphil September 15, 2017 at 6:46 pm #

            Try to read more carefully Skamander. Nobody said he went to jail for fraud, though he probably will. But he is now in a real jail, while his fraud sentence will most likely be served in a country club. That’s why I said I’m glad he went to a real jail. Understand now?

            You are mistaken about defrauding the ill too.

            That’s two bits of wisdom you didn’t posess before, so you’re welcome. If you’d like some more, I have few posts above that you can learn from too.

          • skamander September 15, 2017 at 11:48 pm #

            Just to be pellucidly clear, Gracie:

            My point about Amerika-in-the-right-direction is this: a known fraudster escaped conviction for fraud and instead went to jail for spurious remarks about a certain oligarch, and that implies a malfunctioning justice system, to put it mildly, and certainly not one that is “moving in the right direction”.

            Rather than address that, however, you pontificate and patronize, as usual for you. That’s one of the many reasons you’re so hilarious; you are hoisted by your own petard –again– and not only fail to see it but actually believe it to be true.

            Hilarious. People like you are exactly the reason I left Amerika a long time ago. One must speak loudly to those who are hard of hearing, yes; but it is also difficult to talk to people who confuse Austria and Austrlaia (this is an allusion to a recent statement, by someone whose name we all know), so difficult that it was healthier for me to live in exile. Thanks for that, troglodyte.

          • Graycenphil September 16, 2017 at 7:41 am #

            I understand your point; it wasn’t very complicated or insightful. I was merely correcting your mistakes. It is always better to work with accurate facts.

            If you want to discuss which direction America is moving, I’m happy to do that and remain quite adamant that it is the right direction. I would argue practically everything, overall, is better now than it was 100, 50 and 30 years ago. None of us knows the future (you may be having some trouble with the past too, it appears) but I expect things to be even better 30, 50 and 100 years from now.

            One anecdote Does not define a trend. But since you brought it up, I think the Shkreli case is good. He’s been convicted of fraud, he’ll probably go to prison for that, he’s had his bail revoked and he’s sitting in a tough jail now. Those are all good things. And you’ve left the country. America is looking even better than I thought.

        • skamander September 15, 2017 at 11:20 pm #

          Gracie, your “reasoning” is so abysmally crude that I find it difficult even to bother replying. You don’t care that Shkreli escaped justice for fraud; you’re just glad that he’s in a “real jail”. By that “reasoning”, justice is an empty concept, and that conclusion should be clear to you. Does your cornucopian whizzdom allow you to understand that? (Hint: rhetorical question)

          But please, do go on. You’re very entertaining…for a troll.

          • Graycenphil September 16, 2017 at 7:46 am #

            Skamander, facts please. Do I have to explain everything? Shkreli did not escape justice for fraud. He was convicted. He is appealing, and was out on bail. Convicted, for your benefit means he was found guilty. That means, he disn’t escape justice for fraud. Understand now? If you don’t, avoid the personal insults and just ask questions. I, or someone else, will help you out, but you won’t look as silly.

        • skamander September 16, 2017 at 8:07 pm #

          Gracie Pangloss,

          As so many others have pointed out to you, you are an idiot, and you deserve to live in the mess of a country which your sociopathy, disguised as infernal optimism, has created.

          I respond to you with loathing and insults because that is what you have been doing to others here for quite some time, and, when they point out the errors of your ways, you bluster like a pope and bandy facts to suit your arguments. A recent example comes from the last post (In the Dark), wherein you once again argued for your shop-worn notion against the clear reality of peak oil. Just shut up. I happen to have earned a PhD in Mathematics, specializing in dynamical systems, and can attest to the fact that your claim against peak oil is sophomorically specious. It is an unfortunate fact, but you will not acknowledge that there are limits to growth because you do not, at all, understand the exponential function.

          As to the Shrkeli imbroglio…he did not go to jail for fraud. He is in jail because he made a stupid comment about HRC. Hence, justice has not been done. What is so difficult to understand? Oh, I forgot: it wasn’t very complicated or insightful, and hence beneath the notice of your august intellect.

          I’m glad I left your Amerika. Enjoy the best of all things in your best of all possible worlds, Pangloss; some of us are out here trying to build a better one free of hands and minds like yours, such as they are, you blustering cretin.

          Thanks, however, are due: this little exchange has given me loads of material, so keep it coming!

          • Graycenphil September 16, 2017 at 11:55 pm #

            Once again, a little slower so you can understand, Shrkeli did not go to jail for fraud yet, but he was convicted.
            Nobody said he went to jail for fraud. Do you understand that point?

            The reason he did not go to jail yet for fraud is that he is appealing his conviction. Do you understand what that means?

            He was out on bail, but the judge revoked his bail,so he has to go to jail until his apeal is heard. Assuming his conviction is upheld, he will then go to prison for the fraud.

            You said “a known fraudster escaped conviction for fraud”. That is incorrect; you are wrong. See my first paragraph,or even your own link. He was convicted of fraud. That means he did not escape conviction for fraud. Do you understand now? If not please ask questions.

            If you understand that, we can move on. I never said there are no limits to growth. Why do you think I said that. Is it the same reason you think he wasn’t convicted?

            If you need help,please ask questions. Bit try to use your nice words.

    Crypto currencies took a big beating the last few days with china outlawing them. I thought it might be the big crash, but they are coming back. The people in it are crazy believers, for that reason alone it could succeed a while.

    • PostPeakRancher September 15, 2017 at 11:29 am #

      I think it is much more complex than that. Crypto currencies are certainly looking like a bubble. And there are certainly a lot of true believers in the sort of stateless, crypto-anarchist-libertarian utopian ideals that underpin them.

      BUT, there are also a lot of people who dabble in it b/c they got burned by a corrupt financial system back in the 2000s. Then after the wreckage stopped bouncing they saw that the regulators who were supposed to protect investors from that sort of fraud just sat there and let it happen, then actively colluded with the banks in outright assest seizure of the middle class in the form of small bank seizures and bailouts. Then the coup-de-grace…the new administration sat on its hands and refused to prosecute any of it. I think those sorts of people who are dabbling in the cryptos see them at best as a possible modern financial system alternative to the corrupt Western financial system. At worst, I think they see cryptos as simply a big, fat middle finger to fraudulent scum bags like Jamie Dimon. Sort of how people voted for Trump simply as a “F-You” to the political establishment.

      I would also add that in the BAU world of ephemeral assets such as equities and cryptocurrencies, the cryptos are the ones where you can actually catch a little yield. Of course you can also lose your shirt…and the torso it was attached to the following day! Equities are under tight control now…they only peculate upwards very slowly on the long term. There’s no real way for regular folks to invest in them and grow their money at any rate that a couple of decades ago would have been considered “reasonable”. And eventually that control of equities will fail and look out below! At that point the equities, like the cryptos, will eat your lunch. But atleast with the cryptos, you may have earned enough to have bought a second lunch. Not so for equities…

        I agree its the only place to make a profit around here anymore. This is coming from me who actually has some cryptos. The problem I see is that ultimately it is NOTHING except digital numbers.

        With outrageous valuations btw, things like ethereum have TWENTY TWO BILLION – that is larger than companies that employ thousands of people – all for what? A dream of a future controlled by ‘miners’?

        • PostPeakRancher September 15, 2017 at 1:08 pm #

          I own some cryptos as well. Just enough to make a bit of money off of, but if it goes poof…I won’t be screwed.

          Ethereum is an interesting case. The ICO craze on the Ethereum platform has all the looks of a bubble. I think it will eventually pop and most of the companies that raised money on the system will disappear in short order like pets.com.

          However, I do think there are some companies on that system that are going to be legit and actually provide value for token holders and customers. They will have to survive the crunch ahead, but on the other side they could be the next wave of digital profit generators in the something-for-nothing space.

          I really like Ethereum and the ICO thing for another reason, it completely bypasses the Wall St banks and their corrupt SEC regulators. The banks are starting to get pissed off about it too. If managed carefully with charlatans and scammers kept to a minimum, I think that platform could really be an alternative to the investment banker cabal. In the future I can see many small, local/regional enterprises raising funds locally among actual vendors and customers using these tokens and smart contracts at a much lower cost than what they have to do now with debt financing or equity financing. Of course, all that requires the internet and lights to stay on…

          Lastly, I would add that not all countries are aiming to destroy the cryptos. Back in 2015 Russia was very anti-blockchain tech, but over the past year they have suddenly warmed to it. My personal (conspiracy) theory on the matter is that the Russians, too, see the Ethereum platform as a way to weaken the Western financial oligarchy. Since Ethereum was founded by a Russian, a lot of blockchain devs are Russian and eastern Euro and a lot of blockchain firms have offices in Moscow, there’s also an economic development positive aspect to it for the Russians as well. As long as the Kremlin can work something out with the blockchain devs to make sure Mother Russia is getting her tax take on the action, then they will have a home in Russia.

          Kind of rambling here, but I do find it a very enjoyable space to participate in (minimally) and to observe. So much silliness, speculation, bubble action and irrational exuberance on the one hand. And so much earnest attempts to create work arounds to the current capital stranglehold of Wall St.

            Any medium of exchange is acceptable, the only thing it requires is the trust of the people that it is valid. It doesn’t matter if you are talking about dollars, or herring. The only thing that is required, is the faith of the people. If crypto-currency winds up being accepted by the majority of the people, then that is what will become the new currency. Keep in mind that the only thing that makes the whole concept of currency and economics valid, is faith.

            capt spaulding (hello, I must be going),

            Here’s an interesting scenario for “precious” metals as mediums of exchange (as we see in our host’s World Made by Hand series).
            The specific gravity of metals can be easily tested. Carefully weigh the “medium of exchange”; then place it in a designated volume of water and see how much is displaced. Bingo, specific gravity, determining what the “precious” item is actually made of by its atomic weight. (Under the jaded eye of an armed guard, of course and obviously, as everybody knows.) Real, physical exchange of a tangible substance that people can have the confidence that it represents an exchange of labor for goods and services.

            Don’t worry there’ll be plenty of time for this procedure to be performed; what the hell, you’re a quarter-day’s mule-ride from the homestead; what’s a few minutes here or there?

            My question would be: Is there a way to make an alloy or even plate a different metal in order to fake the specific gravity? (The ultimate in counterfeit.) If yes, we’ll have to spend a bit more time at the general store as they drill a core and give it a good close twice-over. However, if found genuine by a scrupulously honest trader, they could replug the small hole with pure metal and stamp the coin with their unique mark, assuring that “in their considered opinion” it is genuine.
            Voila! A new (and vastly improved) ratings agency! If found to be faking the ratings, a loss of livelihood, or life, might be the next stepping stone in the bid’nez.
            In whom shall we trust? 😉

Just how exactly did the slaves get so educated and articulate?

    A good post today, Mr. K. I couldn’t agree more. I wonder which marketing genius came up with “dreamers.” On language more generally, I went out to lunch with my 96 year old mom yesterday and she told the waitress she she didn’t want any ice in her water. The waitress echoed back, “don’t want no ice.” I found it amusing.

        ==========

        Your question implies that the waitress was, with a 90% probability, black. This brings me to a tale I’ve told here before but so long ago that it deserves a re-telling.

        It was circa 1969-70. I had to conduct an audit in a location in Harlem, NYC. I parked my car in a lot and stopped off at a corner newsstand which, very oddly, was being run by an old white woman. “Wall Street Journal” I said. She looked at me with a broad grin and replied “in this neighborhood?…you’re pulling my leg, right?”

        Three hours into my audit it was lunchtime. I walked down the block to your basic greasy spoon luncheonette. I took a circular stool seat at the counter and tried to act like there was nothing scary or unusual about me being the only white in the joint.

        Scotch taped to the mirror behind the counter (without regard to even an approximation of the horizontal) were hand scrawled “specials” on 8 and a half by 11 sheets of paper. One said “ice tea” and another “boil potato.” The, author, I guess, had no sense of the past tense.

    “Deplorable as they may be, sunk in job loss, anomie, opiate addiction, obesity, and tattoo collecting, the Trumpsters have a legitimate case that they’ve been shoved out of work and livelihoods by immigrants both legal and illegal, and nobody should be surprised at the animus this generates. It’s right and proper that congress should resolve the fate of the DACA kids by legislation, and that they should actively address reform of the 1965 immigration act, too. Things have changed. This isn’t your great-grandad’s America of burgeoning factories beckoning to the downtrodden abroad.

    With the issue of immigration as with so many others, it’s a question of who’s getting gored. As JHK sez the Deplorables have got a legitimate beef with millions of people being let into the country at the same time as millions of jobs are being sent overseas. But, to their enormous discredit, the Democrats paint Deplorables objecting to their own pauperization as cretins and racists. And then they feign astonishment that these same subnormals won’t vote Democrat.

    No doubt everyone now knows about the fubared terror attack on a London tube train. Again, with this issue also, both in the US and Europe and elsewhere, it’s a question of who’s getting hurt. If the multitude of terror attacks had been directed at American and European politicians and billionaires, if 9/11 had killed thousands of them instead of thousands of corporate drones,as sure as we sit here the borders would have been closed to Muslims and the deportations would have been well underway if not complete.

    The rationale? It’s simple. They’d say, geez, we really regret having to do this but we have no choice, we can’t separate the good apples from the bad and we have no way of telling which good apple might turn rotten. So we have no alternative.

    And the high and mighty wouldn’t even blink and they’d entertain no counter argument. It would be portrayed as self-evident that it’s a question of national security. The oh-so-enlightened judiciary that saw fit to stymie the Trump travel ban would no doubt dismiss lawsuits challenging the deportations and the immigration bans as frivolous. And any consideration of such action being unconstitutional or unlawful would be deemed too far fetched to waste the valuable time of the courts. In other words, people of the same social class would close ranks to protect their own.

    But, because it’s the Joe Shmoes getting killed and maimed, the high and mighty mount the pulpits and deliver thundering denunciations of Islamophobia and counsel tolerance. Let’s see how tolerant they’d be if the dead were hundreds or thousands of Congressmen and Members of Parliament and the Davos goers. They’re not expendable. But people like us, that is the shnooks that spend their time reading and commenting on this blog, surely are.

    Big Ag and Big Biz want cheap labor and one way to do it is open the immigration floodgates. But if those millions flooding in from Mexico were teachers and lawyers instead of semi-literate laborers you can bet your bottom dollar that the southern wall would be miles high by now.

    • My Point of View September 15, 2017 at 1:59 pm #

      “Big Ag and Big Biz want cheap labor and one way to do it is open the immigration floodgates.”

      That’s true, which is why immigration will never be solved – at least as long as the GOP can stop it somehow.

      Big Ag and Big Biz want low wages, no benefits, no unions, and no due process for workers killed, injured or sexually harassed on the job.

      Big Ag and Big Biz fund the GOP who make sure immigration never gets solved and is why John Boenher buried the bi-partisan immigration bill the Senate passed a few years ago.

      The GOP cannot afford to piss off Big Ag and Big Biz and is why immigration will never be solved and Trump’s wall will never be built.

      I can’t for the life of me figure out why “Trumpsters” continue to vote for a GOP that fucks them like a two dollar crack ho.

      I wouldn’t be so sure that if they were teachers and lawyers that the wall would be built. Perhaps. I know I must sound monotonous but the attachment to mass, unregulated immigration is emotional and irrational. They will cling to it even as their world collapses on top of them.

      Two years ago this month Merkel decided to admit the hundreds of thousands pushing against the EU border, following a short but extremely intense wave of hysteria on the social media following the photograph of a drowned child. I know because I had joined Facebook just a few weeks beforehand. Speaking on France Radio a few days later Belgian journalist Clementine Forissier said that she had spent a number of years as a Berlin correspondent and had never seen Merkel make a decision in all that time that had not been carefully prepared and thought through. She described it as “rapide et émotionelle et pas intellectuele”. (I’m thinking of Homer Simpson trying to build a barbecue using the French instructions: “Le grille?! What the hell does that mean!”) In Ireland that weekend (the day after the decision to admit thousands of Syrian refugees had been taken and the accompanying demand to give them all immediate citizenship) two lengthy articles appeared in the Irish Independent and the Irish Mail with oddly similar titles: Sometimes the heart has to rule the head.

      As for it being planned, I think I mentioned this a few days ago but it is in my mind so I will repeat it. When the EU was enlarged around 2002-3 to include countries in Eastern Europe member states wisely decided to allow freedom of movement of people from these countries. However the British government followed the Irish lead (what on earth were they thinking?) and let them in. They calculated that between 6k and 13k would arrive (according to Booker and North’s The Great Deception, about the history of Britain’s involvement in ‘Europe’). In the end well over a million came.
      People like Janet will cling to the fantasy until the bitter end, I fear. I hope I am wrong.

      As for our host’s point that it would be cruel to deport the assimilated Dreamers I agree that it would be cruel but also necessary. They should be deported especially, to set and example. But the Resistance seems to include the big majority of your media, politicians and non-thinking classes (you cannot think when you are dreaming) so things will continue to drift until they cannot drift and then your guess is as good as mine.

      Europe caught this madness from America in the first place and we will never be able to deal with it until you do first. Ireland was the last to get involved in the immigration game but has already overtaken most, with a frighteningly high rate of recent immigration (almost certainly irreversible). The Irish were also the last to ‘get into property’ before the crash a few years ago, buying up holiday homes in countries like Bulgaria when everyone else was running for the exit. This phenomenon is known as ‘Paddy Last’.

      The poem of that name by local Kerry poet Gabriel Fitzmaurice ends (from memory):

      ‘And the medal goes to Paddy Last!’ I could hear the village roar.
      ‘Now I’m first at last’ I cried. ‘I was always behind before!’

    This was an entirely government induced problem. The parents of these “dreamers” deliberately brought them here in defiance of our laws, understanding how unlikely it was going to be to get them out again if they stalled long enough, and the Nancy Pelosis and Chuck Schumers deliberately took part in the stalling.
    I don’t know of any Mexicans here illegally who don’t spend plenty of time back “home” in Mexico.
    This is a fake humanitarian issue.
    Our leaders should be concerned with our kids, the ones they ensnared into debt for the rest of their lives, to their own benefit.
    The real news story is the data breach by Equifax, the one they knew about quite some time ago, and are just now disclosing.
    Chuck and Nancy would just as soon distract from that mother of all rackets gone awry. Try getting a straight answer from anybody on what consumers should do next.
    Why is it even legal for a private company to have that kind of access to all Americans’ personal finance information?
    Your credit score gets higher the more willing you are to assume debt.
    The other big but unreported story, is the truly weird case of the Awan brothers.
    While the powers that be are busy screwing the American people, we are crying over some poor little full grown Mexican grifters.

Trump promised to and now has stabbed us in the back. They are put ahead of us – and will be kept ahead of us by Affirmative Action for the rest of their lives.

      Obama is directly responsible for this illegal act. Yet he will never be brought to justice and is worshiped by millions of traitors to this day.

    Kunstlers bigoted world view is always on display. He really has a big problem handling the transgender issue and some of his opinions dovetail with the hate crowds and neo nazi Turnp freaks currently on display. His paranoid delusional reactions to world events also is on daily display in his writings. I suspect he is long overdue for the pshychiatric couch and probably needs to start some serious medications. There is always a conspiracy or impending financial crash just around every corner.Few of his devoted followers ever call him out on it and it really should be an embarassment to him..

          the sin of questioning Usury – Janos

          ============

          When you buy stuff, don’t you shop around for the best price? Or do you assume it is the vendor’s duty to give you a better price than all others?

          The answer to so-called ‘usury’ is to not borrow money at a rate of interest that you think is too high and may be difficult or impossible to pay back. Learn about the magic of compounding before you borrow a cent. As a rule of thumb “never borrow from bent-nose-Tony in Newark.”

          I have a problem with the Bible, Koran, etc restricting the charging of interest on borrowed money.

          • Janos Skorenzy September 15, 2017 at 6:12 pm #

            Our whole money system is “loaned” into existence. The debt can never be paid back. Every American child is born owing something like 150,000 dollars. How dare you make light of this sin? Repent, damn you or you will BE damned for an Aeon.

      When the Irish voted yes in the Referendum on Marriage Equality in 2015 (on ‘humanitarian grounds’) it was hailed as the greatest victory for freedom and decency in the history of the state. It must have been a burning issue for decades, if not centuries, mustn’t it? Well, no. A year or two at most. According to Irish journalist (or rather former journalist, after he was hounded out of his job following ‘Pantigate’ (don’t ask)) John Waters, who had checked the archives of his former employer and ‘newspaper of record’, the Irish Times, the trannie question had never been mentioned until after that referendum. Never. And now someone is a bigot for questioning it? Events are moving quickly. You are living in a bubble and cannot see it.

      • sophia September 15, 2017 at 9:31 pm #

        I’ve been wondering how it is that events can be moving so quickly. There’s nothing natural about it. It is obviously orchestrated.

        I’m also getting very tired of the use of the word hate. Hate is an extremely strong word. I don’t think I hate anyone. I’ve got a few people who have done me some harm, and I resent it, yet I do not think I could say that I hate them. To say I hate transgender people is beyond ridiculous. Yet I’m not on board with the agenda, so they would call me a hater. That is hateful behavior and probably projection. How dare they put words in my mouth or emotions in my psyche. I do not hate them, but I do not want to be forced to speak something that I find untrue, such as calling someone with a penis “she.”

    Trump’s about-face on Dreamers leaves his anti-immigration supporters raging
    But rank-and-file Trump voters may be less infuriated with the president than prominent opponents of illegal immigration.

    thestar.com/news/world/2017/09/14/trumps-about-face-on-dreamers-leaves-his-anti-immigration-supporte…

    “WASHINGTON—They would stand by and let him get impeached. Or boycott his hotels. Or maybe, a couple of them suggested, they would set their Make America Great Again caps on fire.

    “Some of the most reliably Trumpian corners of the internet were raging Thursday as if they had signed up for the left-wing resistance. Just nine days after he had made them so happy, the champion of their anti-immigration fantasies had betrayed them.

    “In a momentous move that could have major consequences for his political future, U.S. President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is eager to make a deal with Democrats to protect the so-called Dreamers, the undocumented young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

    “Not only that: he suggested that it was ridiculous that anyone would want to deport such upstanding and innocent residents.

    “‘Really!’ he wrote incredulously on Twitter.

    “Not only that: the self-proclaimed master negotiator did not plan to demand funding for his border wall as part of the deal to save Barack Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program he had campaigned on eliminating.

    “‘DACA now and the wall very soon,’ he said at the White House after he returned from a visit to hurricane-ravaged Florida.

    “And not only that: he refused to refer to DACA as ‘amnesty,’ as he did throughout his campaign and his attorney general did last week when he announced Trump was getting rid of it.

    “‘The word,’ he said, ‘is DACA.’

    “The details of a possible deal had not yet been hammered out. But it was immediately clear that Trump’s turnabout would be the biggest early test of the loyalty of his base, much of which is hostile to immigration of all kinds.

    “To some of his staunchest allies, the news smacked of unforgivable abandonment. They had celebrated Trump’s decision to end DACA, thinking he had sent the Dreamers on a path to deportation.”

    There’s no question that the U.S. needs to enforce its borders. The question is how this rank con artist ever grifted his way into the presidency to begin with. When people show you who they are, you should believe them, and the whiff of this guy was unmistakable decades before he was ever a reality TV star much less a politician. For any person of good will who looked to Trump even as a faint hope, I feel bad… but not that bad.

      100th,
      I agree.
      Of course, obviously, everybody knows that, *but*, not for too freakin’ long. As the disenfranchised and dumb-shitted start looking around and try to cobble together some way to survive (or, as the fuddy-duddies used to say, “make a living”), all of this “very important” crapola will lose not only its cache, but also its importance.

      Ps. Blue Bottle refers to a type of fly, often found in and around dung heaps and decaying flesh. Heaps of cache to be exploited there, eh? Well, I guess we should never underestimate the the thickness and cluelessness of Boobus Americanus when looking for them to willingly empty out their pockets.

    Everyone is being mislead on the realities of DACA.
    It’s of political use but no real use. It’s greatest use is as a political signal. The reality is that it is a bottleneck where most legitimate DACA candidates will never be removed. They will claim fear, have fear found, and have an immigration judge grant them a benefit (usually withholding of removal). This means they stay here in limbo more or less. There needs to be cutoff date to discourage new arrivals and there needs to be a criminality component at a higher threshold (gangs, misdemeanors) that bars people from receiving. The others should be granted permanent residence at a higher fee and longer probationary period.

  23. Cavepainter September 15, 2017 at 12:41 pm #

    OK, I’m jumping in: FIRST, there’s the screeching “They’re breaking up families”. Wait a minute, where does “they” fit in? Doesn’t such decision reside within the family? Haven’t the amnesty folks lambasted the citizenry for years with “They are people of strong family ties”?

    SECOND, we citizens have been hammered incessantly with “Cultural diversity is of absolute benefit”, except, apparently, when it is the diversity of submersion into the national culture of the illegal parent as would occur if the family accompanied that parent upon deportation.

    THIRD, families that emerged from illegal marrying a citizen: looks like two counts of culpability; both cases involving deliberate actions gambled against prospect of dodging consequences.

    FOURTH, illegals and their family have benefited — for whatever duration they’ve been here — over the dim prospect otherwise that compelled them to risk violating our national sovereignty and immigration laws. So, rather than demanding amnesty why not express thanks to the citizenry by simply leaving with family in tow?

    FIFTH, there’s the guilt argument about hardship upon the children of illegals adjusting to the “foreign culture” of their illegal parent’s nation of origin. Well, hardly seems extraordinary to expect parents to assume responsibility for counseling their children through social/cultural adjustment, right?

    SIXTH, moral arguments like those made for allowing our immigration policies and enforcement to default to however many foreign nationals choose to ignore them are, on principle, essentially hypocritical lest they be boundless. Thus so, upon such principle it becomes incumbent upon national conscience to actually dedicate the entire national budget and destiny to funding unlimited immigration for all the distressed people of the world who otherwise couldn’t manage to get here on their own.

    • Janos Skorenzy September 15, 2017 at 1:37 pm #

      Caller to Hannity yesterday: Trump is playing 4D Chess is moves ahead of all of them. Of course we can’t blame the kids, as a Mother I’d never endorse anything like that. He’s a great negotiator and will get the best of them.

      With people like this, there is simply no hope. They don’t even realize we’re being conquered and in fact, will see it as a Victory. Needless to say, Women shouldn’t be voting.

      The payoff for DACA? HEAVY SECURITY (but no Wall). It is to laugh. The Wall my be see thru (a fence). No Latina no cry. Just as long as I can see them thru the Wall. It is enough.

      It’s interesting to me that we are supposed to be showing special concern toward a group that has already been shown special consideration, in the form of amnesty.
      Everybody seems to forget that – we’ve been down this road before, because it was the “humane” thing to do, yet here we are again, being asked to show special compassion toward the people who deliberately flouted the laws after having once been shown that compassion.
      Is no one aware that would-be immigrants from other countries get kicked out of here all the time?
      How did these ‘educated’ people pay for college?
      Americans with student loans had to give a Social Security number, which Equifax just divulged to God only knows who.

    JHK has got to be getting tired from setting up straw men and punching them down.

    The national news media ignoring Hurricanes Irma and Harvey? Seriously? Where does Kunstler live, again?

    The national news media insisting that all Dreamers are potential Harvard graduates? Seriously? Does Kunstler actually get out much?

    And JHK’s obsession with transsexuals like Manning just strikes me as a little too … obsessive.

    JHK needs to go back to doing what he does so well: successfully forecasting 27 of every two economic meltdowns. (Although I’m disappointed that JHK hasn’t floated his ‘Dow 4500’ forecast yet for this year. Maybe even HE is beginning to realize that the US economy, with all of its inequalities and mismanagement and deep denial of its accumulating debts and obligations, still manages to be pretty resilient and productive).

    If all of the corporate profits of the last 20 years hadn’t flowed exclusively into the coffers of the guilded yacht club set, we might actually now be enjoing a reasonably well-educated and healthy and civilized social fabric in this country, something like what you might see in Denmark or the Netherlands. Instead, the 90% fight over the scraps, while the one-percent devise cl vet ways to eliminate that annoying estate tax, keep them dar-skinned folks away from the voting booth, and better shelter their own capital gains.

  25. My Point of View September 15, 2017 at 1:21 pm #

    “…the Trumpsters have a legitimate case that they’ve been shoved out of work and livelihoods by immigrants both legal and illegal…”

    I’ve read many times in many places that the migration of jobs from the USA to offshore locations is the vastly overwhelming reason for job losses.

    Beginning in the Reagan years, just about every textile mill and clothing factory in the south went to China, India, Malaysia, the Caribbean or other cheap labor locale. The WaPo did a front page article 20+ years ago about one man who made a fat living ripping the looms out of the mills and shipping them overseas. Same for much manufacturing work. Wall Street pushed this as part of their unslakable thirst for more profits.

    American workers have an image problem with employers. We call in sick on Monday mornings, hung over after watching 12 hours of NFL on Sundays. It was common knowledge to not buy a “Monday car.” The Mexicans laughed at us for that, they get to work and don’t call in sick.

    Immigrants, legal and illegal, took jobs that white Trumpsters just won’t do: hotel maid, janitor, landscaper, lawn mowing, fast foods, line cook, dishwasher, busboy, concrete work, etc. If the work is hot, hard, heavy and/or low paying it is immigrants who come here and get ‘er done.

    If Vegas gave odds on it, I’d put my money on dreamers getting into Harvard before our boys sitting around swilling Jack, watching nascar, watching porn, and debating for hours as to whether 12-gauge or a .410 is best for squirrel hunting.

    I have taken heart lately in the resurgence of teaching our people the building trades like carpentry, plumbing, electrical, etc, which are jobs that cannot be off-shored by Wall Street and the 1% — the real enemy of the Trumpster crowd and why there are no jobs for them.

      MPOV,

      You are wrong that white people, much less black people, won’t do those jobs. They can and do. Who do you think did them before all the Mexicans arrived?
      It’s true jobs were off shored, but do you really think that millions of immigrants aren’t going to somehow affect job availability and wages? I don’t want to be mean, but lots of people cannot think abstractly or do basic math.

        As birth control became prevalent in the 1960s we stopped having so damned many kids. We didn’t give anything away — we left room for others! Fine. I scrubbed toilets in redneck bars for gas money to go to a cheap community college, I worked up the feeding chain over the years and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna have a vanpool full kids so the fucking 1% can make serfs out of them like they did my family or for the MIC to send off to war as cannon fodder. Fuck “be fruitful and multiply.” Fuck it all to hell and the church and the 1% along with it.

        Fuck the Catholic Church, and any church that tries to restrict birth control. People saw through that shit years ago and use BC to prevent having kids they can’t afford. Hell, the birthrate in Catholic Italy is the lowest in Europe, half of replacement level. We’re in negative territory too but make up most of the gap with immigrants, which is another dirty little secret your GOP congress won’t whisper in your clogged ears — they’re here to stay so their money can prop up Medicare and Social Security.

        We stopped giving birth to millions of little piss ant workers to slave away on the anthill of labor for a capitalist system that’s screwed us to the wall now for 35 fucking years. No one gave anything away.

    “To think, this woman was the best the Democrats had to offer.”

    HRC was undoubtedly the best. She was better than any candidate of either party, with more experience in the private sector, more experience in government and non-government service, more foreign policy chops, more humanity, and more knowledge.

    A vote for Hillary was a vote to continue Obama’s policies, much as Trump is doing on DACA, on immigration, on Afghanistan, on Obamacare, etc. And that is what is happening.

    Trump has to ride on Obama’s coat tails because he is not intelligent enough to have his own policy ideas. Trump has no government experience so he has been unable to advance any legislative agenda.

    Trump can barely recognize a hurricane and has no clue about hurricane strength being related to warming of the ocean.

      Private Sector? What — banal speechifying before plutocrats (and getting handsomely rewarded for it)?

      “the borders will never be enforced…” –volodya

      Article X of the The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo guaranteed open borders, and open borders were de facto until 1924, when Border Control was created in violation of The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

      That is when and why the reconquista started. When white men do not honor their agreements they have no right to complain about the cosequences.

    Just watched an interview with Michael Moore on MSNBC. The degree of Moore’s obliviousness is astonishing. Yes, Trump outsmarted you all, as Moore acknowledges. But no, Trump simply verbalized on the campaign trail what was done to the American worker.

    To talk of “resistance to Trump is to talk about what? Continuing to screw the American worker? Because that’s why Trump came to power, the American worker had been getting screwed and Trump pledged to fight for them.

    But the Democrats took a pass on the candidate that said he’d fight for the American worker and instead opted for the candidate that deplored them. And the Democrats lost. A fair outcome I would say.

    I suspect that the Dreamers really are completely assimilated. Linguistic ability aside, the Dreamers probably believe with the same depth of faith as the average US citizen that work is obsolete and everybody gets rich.

    DACA and the ensuing cross-aisle dance is in fact Realpolitik in action. If you like Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer or not.

    The fact is that there are children, now young adults, in danger of being ordered deported. The key word here is “ordered”.

    Many of them were brought here not only as minors, but as small children.
    Many of them would make fine citizens, and like any section of humanity, many of them will not.
    Eliminating DACA is in fact rather meaningless when it comes to actual removals of these so-called dreamers.
    Removal proceedings still involve immigration court, and for those that already have removal orders, because their parents failed to attend court, those in-absentia orders are also meaningless, as they are then subject to reconsideration. And reconsidered and reopened the are. Every one. Most are overturned. Facts are facts.
    The dreamers that do get ordered removed, now, in immigration court, will also have their fear and asylum pleadings heard. Many of them will, and can, make the case that returning home to some non-classified failed state (Mexico is a failed state in everything but name) will jeopardize their lives. They are unfamiliar with the culture, language, and no longer have family there. This will create an enormous battle-neck in the already frivolous fear choked courts. It will also only create a lawless undocumented underclass as these kids WILL return illegally. Not maybe, but WILL return. Period. They’re not going to stay in the slums of Tegucigalpa after a life of school provided Chromebooks and weekends of topnotch turf field recreational futbol followed by self-serve froyo. Forget it.
    Trump knows this as do all the people in immigration from the services/benefits side to the enforcement side. Deporting former-kids goes beyond being an anachronism. It is simply un-doable. This is where realpolitik comes in. You HAVE to “normalize” the ones here that assimilated and played nicely. There has to be a cost involve, a penalty. There has to be a mechanism for future deterrence, and there has to be stringent barriers to kick-back the dregs that were criminalized here or brought the criminal lifestyle with them (youth gangs, etc.) After all, this is the US, where poor, and particularly middle-class people being reckless is simply not tolerated. And those more happy about the political posturing than the real policy making, well, you get a conservative (the GOP is dead) president who just took a step in bridging the distance between a dead and useless, and now evolving party, and a growing demographic.
    Remember when Catholics, Irish, Italians, and Poles were not conservatives? It only takes a generation or two. Don’t fret.

    • Janos Skorenzy September 15, 2017 at 6:06 pm #

      Even Court Intellectual Samuel Huntington admitted that Hispanic immigration is a very different kettle of fish. It’s right next door, on our border, with a long history of grievance against us. We aren’t strong anymore, nor do we need them. The world is smaller now and Mexico is right next door, so why would they assimilate at all, unless we forced them to, which of course we no longer have the confidence to do? Nor does the Left see any reason while they should. And the Deep State is backing the Left of this one (and in general).

        It is not a question of need. It is reconciling reality.
        Humanity is a migratory species.

        Why should they assimilate? Why should they want to protect the America that they fled to? Have you been to most of Central America and/or Mexico. It’s right next door, but so far, far away.

        • Janos Skorenzy September 15, 2017 at 8:43 pm #

          Exactly. That’s why they should be kept out. They are going to assimilate. You have answered your own question and agreed with me as well.

          What is your problem? You are eating your own head. Maybe this can help: Ethnomasochism is not a viable philosophy or a healthy state of consciousness. You have to learn to love yourself and your own people. If you are not loveable, then make yourself so.

      You bring up another significant problem. The originating countries simply don’t want them back. From their perspective, the US knew they were here, they didn’t do anything (the US only wanted their parents slaving away in some chicken plant) while mom is cleaning hotels and dad is plucking hens, unsupervised junior gets caught up in a street gang (most cross-national gangs actually originated in the US, something else we are good at besides making snack foods) and goes on to a life of crime. Come deportation time, some of these consulates are like, “go foke yosalef mang” and refuse to issue a passport or travel documentation. They don’t want our criminalized youth, not now. They have enough. Can you blame them? Nothing comes cheaply, not even exploitable illegal labor. We are dealing with these costs now.

      Taki mag, comments;

      A big and tall guy strides up to me with a cowboy hat and says, “I’m a Mexican!” without a smile on his face. I said, “no you’re not, you got blue eyes, are tall and you are a Spaniard. ” He laughed and said, “we are shipping all our shit people up to you.”

      Mexico is approximately 9 per cent Spaniard, who have been keeping their blood relatively pure for a long time, after having miscegenated a while back of course. The Portuguese and the Spaniards came without women and the English did come with their women. The difference is a century or two and Protestantism vs. Catholicism.
      About 60% in Mexico are mestizos, and 30 % are injuns, with an average IQ, per Lynn, of about 83. Put an injun and a Spaniard together and you get an IQ of about 90. Now, I dunno about the Spanish these days. Spain’s IQ is 97 per Lynn, and Portugal’s is 95, as I recall (Portugal was the only European country to bring in African slaves…I have read…true?)
      My only brief sojourn in Spain was going over the border from the Dordoggne (?) in France to see Gaudi’s architecture in Barcelona. It was very hot. I had two nights and 3 days there, and got nicked or attempted nicking , as in petty theft, 5 times. Never anywhere else in Europe. (Gaudi’s art is worth seeing but not worth a special trip…stick to the picture books.)
      So, Europe’s southern blood probably leaves something to be desired, given the Arab and Turk mixtures over the centuries. Thank god the Germans rescued Europe after the fall of Rome, by invading it. The beauty of some Spanish ladies , however, is probably due in part to Arab blood.
      The typical aryan woman has long legs but a face that is somewhat mannish. I prefer brunettes but with legs…you can’t have everything.

      So, Fred on Nothing spreads his verbiage around about how great mexicans are. My local mid-peninsula (south of San Francisco) jail in Redwood City, has just added another jail to handle the mexican diversity. Go into the Hall of Justice, and the courtroom floors are about 90 % peopled with mexicans. I assume that the remaining ten percent are about half white lawyers.
      Race Traitors are real, plentiful, and like many jews, their mouths never shut up.

    OK Thwack. Your turn. From the Baltimore Sun (my city of birth by the way; my neighborhood was that celebrated in the first couple of THE WIRE seasons. I have scars and a unique point of view when it comes to brothers and sisters). Is this the Tragedy of the Commons? Or just plain old moral degeneracy? The effect is the same. Our host has written of it from time to time to his detriment in the eyes of the guardians of politically-correct free speech. Other cities have managed to do it. To quote Marvin, What’s going on? And once you answer that question, how do you make the concept work? Even better, since you like wagers, how much money would you take from the city to make it work? For comparison purposes, Deeray was making $130K – $160K to be absent from the Department of Education. What a gig.

    The Headline:
    Bike-share locks meet industry standards, but were no match for Baltimore thieves, manufacturer says

    The manufacturer of the $2.36 million Baltimore Bike Share system said his company has never experienced the level of theft that caused officials to announce a temporary shutdown of the program to allow additional locking devices to be installed to the bike docks.

    The original locks on the bike stations were overwhelmed by thieves ripping the bicycles out at an unprecedented pace, said Alain Ayotte, CEO of Bewegen Technologies, the Canadian manufacturer.

    “We don’t have this issue anywhere else, not at this level,” Ayotte said Wednesday. “Our locking system is recognized [as] very, very up to industry standard, but due to the issues that occurred in Baltimore this summer, we did add additional security.”

    The bike-share program launched last fall with 200 bicycles at 20 stations and was supposed to grow to 500 bicycles at 50 stations in the spring. Instead, it has suffered so many thefts and maintenance backups that most of the bicycles are out of service. The program will close Sunday and reopen Oct. 15.

    Ayotte declined to describe in detail the original locks or the new ones, citing proprietary technology.

    He confirmed that Bewegen will pay for the installment of the additional locks but would not disclose the cost, saying only that it was “substantial.”

    Officials have repeatedly declined to share figures of exactly how many bicycles have been stolen.

    The bicycles are outfitted with GPS technology, so the stolen or abandoned bikes were usually recovered. But thefts and other non-returns of the bicycles had become such an issue that two maintenance employees were devoted solely to bike recovery, officials said.

    Baltimore Bike Share temporarily shutting down amid thefts, maintenance backups
    Bicycles are often damaged when they’re ripped out of their docks or ditched in an alley, which has contributed to the maintenance backlog that leaves about 100 bicycles at a time awaiting fixes.

    The bikes cost $2 to rent for a 45-minute single trip or $15 for a monthly pass, which provides users an unlimited number of 45-minute rides for 30 days.

    Ayotte said he understands monthly users being upset by the lack of service. City officials made the right move to shut down the system and regroup, he said.

    “We’ve had different challenges [in Baltimore] than other places, but the city is 100 percent behind the bike share system so we’ll make sure we’ll overcome these issues,” Ayotte said.

    The Baltimore Department of Transportation apologized for misleading riders about the reasons for the lack of bicycles across the system. Users who complained about empty docks across the city were told for months that it was a “rebalancing issue.”

    “Our intentions were not to confuse riders at all, but to make sure each station had a good supply of bikes on demand,” spokeswoman Adrienne Barnes said. “Unfortunate incidents hindered supply. Moving forward communication will be much clearer and direct.”

      Perhaps people who have lived life in poverty, economically hopeless and deprived, cannot process, see far enough to ahead to recognize the concept of Abundance, and the often paradoxical manner is which it can occur.

      Of course, some don’t want to consider this facet, and instead conflate systemic, oppressive deprivation with moral depravity.

      I get that ‘we sleep in the beds we make’ but those that proclaim this with an explanation point also extol and acknowledge the amplifying powers of Lineage on the other side of the coin.

      Slavery is not exactly the type of lineage soil to plant future generations of positive, mentally and emotionally healthy citizens.

      And when juxtaposed against the beneficial results of “Lineage, say an Ivy League family with the generations of accrued wealth as a result, one can not really argue against the reality of a double edged sword: Some doing the cutting, other being cut.

      And so when the getting is good, they take now for Abundance has never been.

        Your illegals who party loudly in Eden and throw the soiled diapers in the stream come to mind here.

        You may have read Harari’s Sapiens. I’m about halfway through. Yeah, I get that history plays cruel tricks on culture — which is entirely a product of imagination, but at the same time culture is not static. (Or is it? How long will we observe the “jailin’ ” couture? Just yesterday I was driving through a work zone and the flagman was having some trouble deploying his flag properly owing to the slavish devotion of his other hand to holding up his pants.)

        In other words, the fact that culture IS entirely imaginary allows for re-imagining. Harari cites as example the status of women in Athens back in the day compared to now.

        “Moral depravity” and its obverse may be imaginary and not somehow indelibly linked to the stuff of the universe. I would ask Harari: is murder imaginary?

    Mexico was going to presumably write a metaphorical check to pay for the “big, beautiful wall” he repeatedly, specifically described over and over again never as an analogy but always as ultra-detailed policy proposal?

    The yucks just keep piling up here.

    Grown men may learn from very little children, for the hearts of little children are pure, and, therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss.

    All the things of the universe are joined with you who smoke the pipe — All send their voices to Wakan-Tanka, the Great Spirit. When you pray with this pipe, you pray for and with everything.
    The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka , and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.

    The Great Spirit is everywhere; He hears whatever is in our minds and our hearts, and it is not necessary to speak to Him in a loud voice.

    The power of a thing or an act is in the meaning and the understanding.
    Perhaps you have noticed that even in the slightest breeze you can hear the voice of the cottonwood tree; this we understand is its prayer to the Great Spirit, for not only men, but all things and all beings pray to Him continually in different ways.

    [The Sun Dancers] also put rabbit skins on their arms and legs, for the rabbit represents humility, because he is quiet and soft and not self-asserting — a quality which we must all possess when we go to the center of the world.

    This center which is here, but which we know is really everywhere, is Wakan-Tanka.

    It is good to have a reminder of death before us, for it helps us to understand the impermanence of life on this earth, and this understanding may aid us in preparing for our own death. He who is well prepared is he who knows that he is nothing compared with Wakan-Tanka who is everything; then he knows that world which is real.

    Of all the created things or beings in the universe, it is the two-legged men alone, who if they purify and humiliate themselves, may become one with — or may know — Wakan-Tanka.

    From Black Elk.

          Btw, Black Elk was not only a great Sioux Shaman, but made much meat in his time (his words for being a hunter). And he was a Warrior at Little Bighorn. To paraphrase one of his statements, The White soldiers tried to get a drink. They drink still.

          I support the Conquest, but respect our honorable opponents. It was the Apocalypse of their Culture, their Ragnarok. Early on, they sent a few of their young men East with one of the Wild West shows, with orders to count how many White Men there were. The young men returned and said they gave up before the first day was over. There was no end to the Whites and some of the Indians knew they were doomed. Of course they took refuge in the Spirit – but vowed to fight as well. Hope we do as well now as our Apocalypse approaches.

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Upbraiding the ESPN anchor Jemele Hill for calling Donald Trump a “white supremacist,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said on Wednesday that “no one has done more than President Trump to prove that white people are not superior.”

    “It’s grossly unfair that Ms. Hill sought to portray Donald Trump as an upholder of white supremacy, when everything he says or does directly undermines that whole concept,” Sanders said. “Anyone who thinks that Donald Trump is on some mission to make white people look good hasn’t been paying attention.”

    Sanders urged the ESPN anchor to “do her homework” on Trump before making baseless allegations. “Read his tweets,” she said. “Listen to his speeches. If you still think Donald Trump is trying to prove that white people are superior, I tip my hat to you.”

    Ending on a personal note, Sanders said that she was “a hundred-per-cent sure” that her boss is not a white supremacist. “Donald Trump cannot even spell the word ‘supremacist,’ ” she said. –Andy Borowitz

    all you Buddhists here in CFn, or anybody who read ‘Siddhartha’ back in the day, I thought Buddhism was all about inner peace and outer love, you know, the antithesis of Christianity? (which is hateful and promotes war, colonialism and racism) ha! So how come in Burma real Buddhists, not bullsh-t American campus Buddhists, are pounding Rohingya Muslims and driving them into the sea? I didn’t read about any of this in Herman Hesse books. These Burmese Buddhists aren’t rolling out the welcome mat for Muzzies, no! just the opposite from what’s happening in Sweden or Germany. In Burma, nobody is holding up a sign that says ‘Muzzies Welcome’. On the contrary these Buddhists are saying Muzzies are not welcome, get the hell out of our Buddhist country. And these Buddhists are taking direct action; they’re not f-cking around. Hey Janos you’re a big one for reciting all this eastern religious mumbo jumbo here in CFn, what do you say now? turns out these real Buddhists are not that peaceful and will gladly kick ass if kicking ass is what’s called for. Has anybody else in the past 25 years, other than Israel, stood up to Muzzies like these Burmese Budhists; I can’t think of any.

      You’re right. Buddha was born into the Warrior Caste and was trained in the martial arts and ways of Power. He was the Prince and was in line to inherit the Throne before he renounced. Reading his many words, and we know an immense amount about him – far more than we know about what Christ thought – I have yet to see anything like Pacifism. Yes, the monks or world renouncers were pacifists. But regular people? The Ruling or Warrior Class? Nothing. It’s a completely different understanding of Life. There’s not just one vocation for all people, but different ones for different types. The one size fit all understanding is very, very modern – and complete gibberish.

      How can the Monastic Institution exist without the Laity to support them AND defend them? Buddha was not such a fool, unlike modern Western Buddhists. Beyond that, the Burmese remember what the Muslims did to the Sangha in Old India – wiped it out, killed the Monks and burned the Monasteries. The Rohinga started up with some of the same tricks: raping women and setting meditating monks on fire and the Burmese saw the historical light.

      Now, the situation in Burma is a bit different because the Monasteries have changed. As a rite of initiation, all young men shave up and become monks for a few months. And over time, the monasteries have become the centers of political change and social activism, much like our Universities. Buddha never envisioned this and wouldn’t approve, but such it is. The activists are temporary monks who have not taken full vows. Thus the integrity of the Monastic Vocation is not completely threatened, but some individuals have taken full vows without giving up politics. Buddha would certainly disapprove, but if no one else steps forward to do what must be done, I can’t disapprove.

      The Old Caste system with its clearly marked vocations is no more. And if the political class won’t serve the nation, they must be made to by others – to avoid complete disaster. And the Muslims becoming entrenched in Burma would be a complete disaster. They are very poor, yet they have built beautiful Mosques. They are obviously getting Oil Money from Saudi Arabia. And it’s just a matter of time before they got ISIS fighters as well.

Hurricanes thrive over warm water and strengthen in intensity; oceans have warmed on an average 1 to 3 degrees Fahrenheit over the past century, and sea levels have risen about 7 inches during that time. Throw in compound flooding — the combination of rising sea levels from global warming, storm surge and extreme rainfall — and you have the perfect mix for record flooding.

    Yes, she really is that delusional. Here’s the passage;

    “Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos. This is what happens in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, experts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves.” from ‘What Happened?’ [ question mark supplied ]

    4) the American political class, “Progressives” and “Conservatives” alike, for keeping the border unenforced

    The American political class look after Big Biz and Big Ag Oligarchs because that’s where their donors are, that’s where their post politics careers are and that’s where their kids’ careers are.

    Sean Coleman, I think it was Peggy Noonan that said that the people that encourage the madness think they won’t be personally discomfited by the sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands of people that have massive needs like housing and incomes. AND that have no knowledge of the local language, no skills for the local job market, no clue about prevailing customs and norms, no willingness to LEARN local customs and norms. And people that have been taught since Day One of their lives that Islam is the religiously and culturally superior way.

    Does Merkel think she’s the equal of the arrivals? She should think again, she’s not a Believer. But Merkel thinks that for her, the issue is irrelevant. In this, Merkel would be wrong and all those of Merkel’s class that think they can’t be displaced and brought low, should re-think their convictions in this regard.

    As far as the UK goes, from the perspective of this side of the pond, the Brexit vote wasn’t a surprise, at least not to me. I’ve only been there as a tourist but there’s a consistency to what I’ve been hearing and reading. To expect a place like the UK that’s already crowded, that already has a housing shortage, that’s had a long-term chronic shortage of good paying work, to entertain a million more people is just on the face of it preposterous. You have to question the sanity of the national intelligentsia.

    But again, like those in Germany and elsewhere, the people at the top think they have nothing to fear, they think that they’ll maintain their hold on power and privilege regardless of conditions on the ground.

    And then the unwashed voted “Leave”. How was this possibly a surprise? People vote their economic interests.

    There’s many possible trajectories that events can take from here, but when people get economically squeezed, they push back which is how I look at the vote for Trump and Brexit.

    How things go from here like you say is anyone’s guess, but the more people get squeezed, the more they push back. People at the top should start to look at this from the perspective of self preservation.

      They obviously don’t believe they will be affected personally and know that their poorer fellow citizens will suffer. It is not that they do not care; they do. They believe that unfettered immigration is a good thing, a moral thing, and that if some people get hurt in the process that is too bad, as long as it is not themselves.

      Those people deserve to be hurt anyway because they are deplorable and do not share their own high moral standards. The immigrants are fleeing persecution and hunger (and in particularly rape: liberal commentators like to stress this aspect although I doubt the accuracy (as always) of their information).

      People who think like themselves in the media (nearly everyone it seems) and in politics (nearly everyone it seems) and in academia and professional life (nearly everyone it seems) agree that immigration is a good thing. The reasons vary: it is a good thing in itself; borders are unjust; the west is dependent on immigrants for demographic reasons; it is a good thing in itself; people have always emigrated; it is a fact of life, a done deal, and we will just have to get used to it and to think otherwise is naive and utopian; it is cruel to turn them away; it is a good thing in itself; their opponents and critics are vile, deplorable and ill-educated rednecks who are racked with racism and prejudice. (Did you notice the recent poster who said he is married to an Indian woman and who despises the proles?)

      They are aware that it may not end well but block it out of their thoughts. If they are not personally affected (and may even in a very few cases benefit) they can live with it. If their fellow citizens are appalled with it, then that is their own fault for being unenlightened (this is a neutral or even virtuous state for those in the Third World but it is unforgiveable in the modern West and is possibly an echo of the doctrine of predestination).

      It may not end well but they do not want to think about it. This is the argument of the Deplorables so the subject is unworthy of consideration. Anyway it is a moral thing. Morals are more important than anything else. Their own morals are high but they cannot speak for their opponents.

      It may not end well because it is an emotional thing. Whose heart could not be broken by the pictures? The children? These people only want to be able to work and be happy. Why can’t we just let them?

      If you want to do good someone will get hurt. It stands to reason. We have not been hurt so far, see? It will be all right in the end. Don’t keep pushing me! Have you seen the picture?

      It may not end well but it will if we all pull together. We can do it. We are all Americans, Irish, French, Germans and British. We have a responsibility. We are well off and we feel guilty. The Deplorables may not be as wealthy as us but whose fault is that. There is no reason at all to think we cannot succeed. Did you see the pictures? Borders are an anachronism.

      It may not end well but I don’t want to think about it. I can’t think about it.

      There are times when feelings are more important than thinking.

      Racism is the worst thing imaginable. Six million Jews. And the poor people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is sheer evil. We are fighting Pure Evil. Why can’t you get that? Have you no feelings? What kind of people are you? KKK?

      How will we look after all the old people? Who will do the menial jobs?

      You might have a point but what if any of my friends heard me? I’d never be able to show my face.

      It may not end well but there is no alternative.

      It would be cruel to send them back.

      Didn’t you see the pictures?

      Those women were being *raped*!

      Nobody will ever change my mind. Immigration is good. Immigration is the future. A future of happy, golden-skinned people.

      Anyway, I don’t want to talk about it.

      You can’t say that. You’re not allowed to say that.

      JHK’s columns have really gone downhill. How does he put up with all those racists? He should stick to what he knows about.

    The “Dreamers” are the charter school/voucher/destroy the public school system industries best friend. Most any school district in the country with a large Latino/a population typically has low graduation rates and assessment test scores–just the opening that the charter school/vouchers for all industry covets.

    There are dreamers and then there are dreamers whose dreams are coming true. For many public school districts, however, the dream has turned into a nightmare with public employee union teachers losing jobs and benefits to lower paid charter school hacks taking a swing at improving graduation rates and test scores.

    Oh yeah—bet most of you didn’t contemplate that facet of the issue.

    In the Spirit of Christian Love

    The day before yesterday I drank vodka with irreconcilable members of Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, whom I met long time ago, before the 2000 elections.

    Discussed naturally Kshesinskaya and the conversation at some point went on in elevated tones. Well, I will not take communion in the “church”, which proclaims Hitler a saint. A priest of such a church I can inadvertently fuck a bit up in the “God’s” temple, because such a father is worse than any Zemlyachka and Yaroslavl, and participation in such “worship” is a slander of the Holy Spirit.

    And I am sure that this opinion is shared by the majority of Orthodox Christians in Russia who participate in the march of the Immortal Regiment and they will have to face this reality and realize in the very near future.

    Of course they did not say anything about “Saint Adolph”, but it was clear that they were on the same road that Aivrosius (Seaver) had gone through. And the conversation on high tones went when we mentioned the buckles of the Hitler’s army and it turned out that behind them there is that most important and most vile secret of the medieval Western Black Project, which I still can not mention here…

    Ann Coulter says that the President doesn’t need Congress’s approval to build a Wall or throw the DACAs out. As Commander and Chief, he has the duty to defend the United States. He doesn’t have to go begging for funds, he can just take them out of the military budget. Obama made masterful use of Executive Privilege and everyone expected Trump to do the same. But zip. She says it’s a scumbag trick to avoid keeping his promises.

    Not obviously I love these ideas, but are they true? Sure enough, his early talk about banning the DACAs on Day One presupposes her premise. But is there anything there from a legal or historical pov? Does the Constitution give the President this power? Are there historical precedents here? Any amateur Constitutional scholars here? It’s not my forte.

      Like Coulter said, he could do it and see if the courts, the constitution, the congress, or the citizens try to stop him. But he won’t … because Trump is a pro-DACA, pro-amnesty billionaire who has hired lots of undocumented workers.

      Trump is a closet Democrat. He didn’t have McConnell at his wedding, but he did have Chuck and Hillary at his wedding. And Nancy has Trump’s ear. Trump seems to like Nancy. So do I.

    Regarding the Role of Divorce in the History of Salvation

    First of all, I want to congratulate my Russian compatriots: the Rurik dynasty had no divorce and illegal children, since the Rurikovichs were Normans who had such a thing as a Danish Wife, that is, a wife not married in Church, but enjoying all the rights of a lawful wife.

    By the way, it is the Normans that have had a decisive influence on Russian culture and a large part of today’s most fundamental cultural stereotypes of Russians – from the Normans.

    So Lomonosov was wrong, but he actually meant the pro-German propaganda of Miller, the president of the Russian Academy, who mistakenly considered the Normans a variety of Germans.

    In fact, it was not so, and the culture of the Normans was the antipode of the culture of the Salic Germans. In particular, the well-known contempt of Russians for rapists comes from the Normans (because of this, I do not believe in mass rapes in Germany in 1945).

    The fact is that before the adoption of Christianity during the pagan period among the Normans, they are Vikings, they are Varangians, their supreme deity Odin was a god of love and even sex, and violence against a woman, even in conquered European cities, was considered an insult to this very touchy deity.

    What favorably distinguished them from the Germans in the lower reaches of the Rhine, whose culture was formed under the influence of the Salic Law. And this difference was further exacerbated after the adoption of Christianity, since Christ with the Normans in some sense took the place of Odin, just as with the Romans Christ took the place of the Genius of the Emperor.

    The most famous case of the Danish Wife is Gunnora de Crepon, who is called the mother of modern Europe, as her descendants have founded all European aristocracies, except Protestant princes of Germany, where the Turkic Khazars really got involved, whose moral code was very close to the Salic Law.

    As always, everyone talks most about what hurts the most.

    But there is an even more interesting example: the Church of England in church tradition was created by Joseph of Arimathaea, who sailed to Cornwall with the Holy Grail, and she – the Church of England – is older than the Church of Rome.

    But over time, under the influence of the Franks and Rome, the moral principles of the Normans were blurred, and, after the conquest of England by the illegitimate William the Conqueror, also known as Wilhelm-the-Bastard, the Church of England fell into spiritual slavery to Rome.

    Trauma from this spiritual slavery has deeply settled in the subconscious of the British and in their truly great culture, periodically breaking through into politics.

    And then, just 450 years after the Battle of Hastings, Henry the VIII, a zealous Catholic, a man well educated and almost genius, a real Norman in spirit, sat on the throne of England.

    And so he met Anne Boleyn, and he wanted her so much, that he completely lost it. And she does not let him – “I do not want adultery. If you want me – divorce, but otherwise – go away.”

    Well, the real Norman can not rape his beloved woman! A Roman Pope climbed into the proverbial bottle and did not give a divorce, no matter what. And so the zealous Catholic Henry the VIII, the writer of theological and philosophical treatises, could not endure these torments, splintered with Rome, hanged half of the hierarchs and pro-Catholic politicians high and short, demolished the Catholic monasteries to the ground, and sent the monks to soldiers.

    And he changed the religion in the country, practically restoring the Orthodox Church of England, which from the joy of it divorced him from Catherine of Aragon.

    And he, finally, legally dragged Anna Boleyn into bed.

    Further all of course it was not very nice, but his daughter from Anna Boleyn was wonderful, and almost married to Ivan the Terrible, really very similar to her dad in all respects. True to him, the divorce had a reverse action, which once again proves that everything in life is contextual.

    Over time, all these passions have subsided, and the Church of England has remained until now, and the fact that what LGBTQ is now trying to do to it makes Anglicans, Episcopalians and other Methodologists in Britain and the United States recall their Orthodox roots.

    And if the Russian Orthodox Church and Russia Today had more brains, and a less Pharisaic spirit, they would have listened more attentively to the voice from above and look at the fingers writing on the wall, and now would have turned the divorce of Vladimir Putin into the same evil that the Lord with the help of his faithful servants turns into good.

    The truth is that they would have to hide their anti-Americanism somewhere far away, but what can not you do for the glory of the Lord, if the love of Christ and Russia is greater than the dislike of America and even the Englishwoman.

    But I’m afraid that we have not enough brains and no one understands the difference between the checkers and a horse ride, and my voice will again be a voice crying in the wilderness.

        There are many versions of what exactly happened in Yekaterinburg in 1918 in the basement of the house where I used to go as a kid to learn piano lessons.

        According to one of them, Nicholas II was murdered with his family by Trotskyites working for Federal Reserve owners, which Nikolai part-funded with his gold.

        If that rumor is true, a significant percentage of the FED belongs to the Russian Federation.

We thought Trump one of this Glorious Band. But in fact, he’s a great Magician who tricked us into thinking he is what he isn’t.

    Life in Antigonish is like a box of chocolates for Syrian family
    Isam Hadhad and his family, Syrian refugees from the war that destroyed their factory and home, found a “community of the heart” in a small town.

    thestar.com/news/insight/2017/09/16/life-in-antigonish-is-like-a-box-of-chocolates-for-syrian-family…

    “Before the missiles came and destroyed his family’s chocolate factory in Damascus in early 2013, pretty much the only thing Tareq Hadhad knew about Canada was the little he’d picked up from MTV.

    “He’d heard of Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. He’d heard that Canada was ‘a nation of diversity.’ What the rest of his family — father Isam, mother Shahenaz and four siblings — knew about their future home was the usual.

    “It ‘was the coldest country in the world.’

    “Back then, had you mentioned ‘Antigonish’ to Hadhad, he might have responded with the Arabic equivalent of Bless you!

    “‘I hadn’t heard about Halifax, or Nova Scotia before,’ he laughed this week. ‘So Antigonish was a surprising destination for me. Antigonish is not famous across the world.’

    “But what a few years it’s been. And what wonderful ambassadors for Antigonish the Hadhad family has become.

    “On Sept. 9, less than two years after landing in Canada — safe haven after three years in a refugee camp in Lebanon — the Syrian family celebrated the opening of a new chocolate factory in the little Nova Scotia university town that took them in.”

    I had the pleasure of enjoying some of the Hadhad family’s chocolates when I spent a few days in Cape Breton this summer, owing to a family funeral. Hard to think of a better example of immigrants making their new country better by their presence. Here’s a photo:

    instagram.com/p/BZHXCdIlwmX/

    Shortly afterward we drove up to the Glenora Distillery in Inverness and enjoyed an hour or two of traditional music performed by a band of charming preteen girls — talented, enthusiastic, drenched in the living musical tradition of Canada’s East Coast, and utterly unthreatened (in any sense) by their new neighbours. (If you’re nice to me, I might even link to the video I shot.) Céad míle fáilte!

    “Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you — the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings of the air,
    and all green things that live.

    “You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road and road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things.”

    Hey! Lean to hear my feeble voice.
    At the center of the sacred hoop
    You have said that I should make the tree to bloom.

    With tears running, O Great Spirit, my Grandfather,
    With running eyes I must say
    The tree has never bloomed

    Here I stand, and the tree is withered.
    Again, I recall the great vision you gave me.

    It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives.
    Nourish it then
    That it may leaf
    And bloom
    And fill with singing birds!

    Hear me, that the people may once again
    Find the good road
    And the shielding tree.

    The Sunset

    Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.

    And I say the sacred hoop of my people was one of the many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy…

    But anywhere is the center of the world.

    Black Elk’s Prayer and part of his Vision. Note that in the Vision of the Earthly Paradise, that the hoop of his People is still distinct, just like the hoops of the others peoples. No Blendau. And where the Good Road meets the Path of Pain, that place is holy. And anywhere can be the center of the world if we can but See.

      Western man certainly seems to be obsolete then, as is his entire cultural paradigm. Janos has it exactly wrong. The extinction of the northern white European races isn’t a problem, it should be the goal!

But of course I include the Jews as part of the white races, as they’ve essentially co-opted them anyway.

        The Enemy has implanted self hatred in our People. It’s takes tremendous effort to awaken to the fact and that to expel it. You don’t seem to have realized it fully, though you are Jew wise to some extent. And you have taken no steps to cleanse your mind.

        Example: Some company wanted to install video games in China. One of the games was of Black Basketball players humiliating Chinese martial artists. The Chinese were outraged. The video game company was flabbergasted. What did they do wrong? Isn’t it natural to show Blacks humiliating other people? Get it? This is how a healthy People react to humiliation. In contrast, the White Elite cooperated with the Jews to crush their own People. Nothing is more evil, not even the Jews themselves. I mean look at the Harlem Globetrotters franchise: for decades a White Boy team of losers traveled around with them to play them as their dupes. Now that’s despicable.

    On Friday, Apple issued its response: Forget it. Online ads are violating our privacy, and Apple isn’t going to disable intelligent tracking prevention.

    “Ad tracking technology has become so pervasive that it is possible for ad tracking companies to re-create the majority of a person’s web browsing history. This information is collected without permission and is used for ad re-targeting, which is how ads follow people around the internet,” an Apple representative said. “Apple believes that people have a right to privacy.”

    Granted the black guy shouldn’t have tried to run from the cops; but I think this cop is guilty of murder:

    stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/acquitted-officer-stockley-everyone-wants-someone-to-blame-…

    Caught on his own camera saying “Im gonna kill this mother fucker” before shooting the driver 5 times.

    Then

    then,

    possibly planting a gun on the dead man?

    The cops DNA was all over the gun; but the driver’s was missing?

    WTF?

    Niggers don’t clean their guns?

    I hope they revealed the make an model of the gun because some friend or relative of the dead man knows if it was the suspects gun.

    Why?

    Because guys always tell their friends about the gun/s they own; often by showing it to you. Especially white guys; I know about ALL the guns my white friends own so no cop better ever dared to plant one on them; especially not no nigger bullshit cheap ass “saturday night special crap….

    Like I said, some black person out there probably knows if this gun was planted by the cop?

    the girlfriend, the brother, the guy he buys drugs from…?

    Just sayin

      Saturday night specials were prevalent in the Ghetto in the 60’s, early 70’s…saved many lives. The denizens are MUCH better armed now.

      In one line, Wilson wrote that based on his nearly 30 years on the bench, that “an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly.”

      Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found officer Stockley not guilty of all charges.

      So the question I have is did they find any heroin in the suspect’s car or on the suspect?

      Its one thing for a police officer to be in possession of an unauthorized gun? You can talk your way out of that problem (like it appears the officer did)

      But being a police officer in possession of some unauthorized HEROIN?

      Thats a problem you may not be able to talk your way out of; so if they didn’t find any, it may be because none was planted due to the liability of an officer possessing heroin to plant on suspects?

      Just sayin.

      • elysianfield September 17, 2017 at 7:36 pm #

        Thwack,
        Suspect and no. The issue with the not guilty verdict is that they charged him with murder in the first degree. They must prove intent to murder…the statement in the heat of the chase was not enough. They should have charged him with lesser offenses, murder 2, or manslaughter…a conviction then would be easier to obtain.

        The question you should be asking is; “Did they charge murder 1 with the obvious intent that the cop would beat the rap…”?

        Just wait for it…he will ride the lightnin’ eventually.

        Regarding the hold-out gun…. Many departments allow the on-duty carrying of as many guns as one might feel comfortable with…San Jose Police Department in the ’60’s so allowed…Oakland, no.

        Illegal drugs by an officer on duty? Felony possession (see ‘ride the lightnin” above).

        just ‘splainin’

    Ahnenerbe

    – Experiments on the effect of low temperatures on humans were conducted by Dr. Zygmund Rascher at the Schwabinger Hospital in Munich. Rascher was a member of the SS and the staff physician of the German Air Force. In his opinion, the experiments on the study of the effect of aerial heights on the pilots had long been stuck and demanded the further promotion of the participation of living people in them. And he received them.

    To carry out high-altitude experiments, special pressure chambers were transferred from Munich to the Dachau concentration camp, from where the air was pumped out in such a way that real conditions were simulated for the absence of oxygen and low pressure characteristic of high altitudes. As it became known at the “Process of Doctors”, about 200 prisoners from Dachau passed through these experiments. 80 of them died right in the pressure chamber, the survivors were eliminated later so that they could not tell what was happening.

    And soon Dr. Rascher began his famous “experiments on freezing.” Now the prisoners were “tested” in two ways: dropped into a reservoir with icy water or left naked in the snow for the whole night.

    The strongest experimental subject survived in ice water for 100 minutes, the weakest – only 53. As soon as the “fatal table” was compiled, Dr. Rascher received a new order from Himmler: learn to return to life frozen subjects. The Reichsfuhrer had no doubt that the valiant German Luftwaffe would soon have to make forced landing in the waters of the Arctic Ocean, landing on ice-bound and frosty shores of Norway, Finland or Northern Russia.

    In total, 300 Dachau prisoners were used in the “freeze” experiments. 90 of them died during the experiments, part of the “patients” went mad, rest were destroyed.

    Ahnenerbe

    The Nazis also used the ancient occult “keys” (formulas, spells, etc.) found with the help of “Ahnenerbe”, which allowed them to establish contact with “Aliens”.

    For the “sessions with the gods” the most experienced mediums and contactees were involved (Maria Otte, etc.). For the purity of the results, the experiments were carried out independently in the Tudeh and Vril societies.

    It is argued that some occult “keys” worked and independent technogenic information was obtained through independent “channels”. In particular, the drawings and descriptions of the “flying discs”, in terms of their characteristics, far exceeded the aircraft technology of that time.

    Particular attention was paid to the study of mechanisms for managing human behavior. Intensive experiments in this area were conducted in a concentration camp near the mystical stronghold of the Nazis – the castle of Wevelsburg, which was intended as the center of the future SS Empire.

    In this castle, by the way, mysteries were held on the preparation of the arrival of a certain “Man-god” on Earth. Hitler, therefore, was only the first, not the most successful experience in this field. According to some reports, Germany spent more money on research conducted within the framework of the Ahnenerbe than the US on the Manhattan Project.

    And it’s hard to imagine that these were the costs for empty nonsense. Fascist theorists really succeeded in producing in the bowels of the German people a psychophysical explosion of unprecedented strength

    The Nuremberg tribunal sentenced the last leader of the Ahnenerbe, Wolfram Zivers, to the death penalty along with representatives of the Reich elite.

    Interrogation of Zivers in Nuremberg devoted to SS experiments on prisoners of concentration camps. Zivers denied any involvement in them. He speaks of Shambhala, Agharti, uses occult terms. The hall is full of bewilderment. Finally, the former colonel begins to talk about one of the founders of “Ahnenerbe”, Dr. Gilshere. The interrogation is stopped abruptly …

    Gilshere, who was not under the investigation, came to Nuremberg to testify in favor of Zivers. After testifying, he asked for permission to lead Zivers at the foot of the gallows, and it was with him that the condemned man read the prayers of a cult that had never been mentioned in the trial. The guards could not understand anything in the strange movements and incomprehensible words of an SS man, similar to spells.

    It is not by chance that the philosopher Ernst Junger wrote that Gilshere – no more and no less – founded a new religion. And very advanced in creating new rituals. Apparently, one of them took place near the Nuremberg’s gallows.

    • FincaInTheMountains September 17, 2017 at 12:42 pm #

      Did the ritual of “Spirit Cooking” practicing by Clintonoids come from Ahnenerbe?

      • Janos Skorenzy September 17, 2017 at 3:16 pm #

        Probably a combination of Vodoun and Crowley. Crowley’s influences are Masonry and the Kabbalah. Most Western Occultism comes from the Jews. Of course they take from others but never give credit. No doubt they got much from their stay in Babylon.

    • Janos Skorenzy September 17, 2017 at 4:55 pm #

      So what exactly was this Zivers guilty of exactly in their estimation or yours? Or do you not believe in freedom of religion? Are you now Orthodox? And if so, have you decided upon Orthodox Judaism or Orthodox Christianity – or did you not know there was a difference?

      Julius Streicher was also put to death I believe – for writing about the Jewish Cult of murdering Christian boys, often quoting from Catholic sources. I don’t know for sure, but I would guess the Orthodox Church also believes in the reality of the Cult or at least did when they were still healthy.

          Using that term implies that it’s not true. It is or at least was. Completely proven. The liturgy of the ritual was discovered by Dr Toaf.

    I spent the first 30 or 40 years of my life in that church and never, ever once heard such an idea or rumor == Sophia

    I will remember this conversation from the previous post for a long time,

    kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/dreamers-dreaming-dreams/#comment-319136

    because in my opinion it reflected something more important than the drunken delirium of emigrants from New York. And as I already wrote this will have to face many in the very near future, but the fact that Mrs. Poklonskaya can easily provoke a Civil War in Russia right now, just at any moment many people have already understood.

    youtube.com/watch?v=zql0UVcv-1w

    And this war will not be a war of Orthodox monarchists with liberal viewers of “Matilda”, but a religious war of one part of the Russian Orthodox Church with its other part, which I do not even know how to name.

    I will call it purely contingently Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, since after a dozen splits from the ROCA, which, despite the disruption of church relations with all the Orthodox Churches, still retained the Christian face, several compact, well-organized and well-funded groups emerged that struggle for power over the Russian Orthodox Church themselves having nothing to do with the Church.

    But they are supported with all their might by a Western Black Project in the person of the same organization whose relationship with the ROCA during the Cold War was brilliantly and fully reliably presented in the movie “Resident’s Error.”

    ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9E%D1%88%D0%B8%D0%B1%D0%BA%D0%B0_%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B7%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%B…

    And as a result of Mrs. Poklonskaya’s work, as far as I understand, the support of these groups has recently increased by an order of magnitude, as it revealed a crack in a stone into which a wooden wedge can be driven and started to be watered.

    • sophia September 17, 2017 at 8:52 pm #

      Well, I don’t really know what you said above. But I do not think the ROCA is pro Hitler. What country was this you were in?

    Trump and the media: based on Sunday political broadcasts

    On all TV channels, but especially Democratic, Trump is being praised -I was even disgusted!

    Everyone is interested in how much his electoral support has changed after the deal with the Democrats and everyone with sincere amazement comes to the conclusion that it has not changed very much.

    Here are some statements by American political scientists, who seemed to me smarter than others.

    1. “Meet the Press”: A three-party system was created in America: Republicans, Democrats and the Trump Party

    2. I do not remember who: Trump’s electoral support after the deal with the Democrats has not changed, because he still remains the only alternative to those indistinguishable parties that captured Washington and turned it into a swamp.

    3. Teresa May, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos, answering his question about how Brexit will affect her political destiny (according to the media’s forecasts, in extremely negative way), winked at George with her left eye that I simply did not listen to her answer because of its total irrelevance.

    Well, and the most stupid quote (do not remember who):

    The extreme right-wing Republicans, all kinds of Breitbartis, can be indignant about this, but Trump can not but cooperate with the Democrats.

    I specifically checked – the extreme right and Breitbartis support Trump, and most of all his deal with the Democrats has outraged the so-called moderate Republicans, who can not be distinguished from the so-called moderate Democrats = the Clinton Swamp

    Good article on Race and Medicine. Even when controlled for habits and income, Blacks are the least healthy race. And Whites? By no means the sturdiest race. Yet Blacks are constantly compared to White and only Whites – and then Whites are blamed for their bad habits and genetic fragility. More hatred of Whites.

    East Asians are by far the healthiest people. American Indians and Hispanics are strong too, because they share much of their genotype. Stupidly, Pacific Islanders are thrown into this category just to confuse everything and everyone. They aren’t very healthy or smart. Like Blacks, they are big, fat, strong, and stupid.

    Good comment sections. Blacks are so lazy they won’t even push on a revolving door if another person is pushing. Or if going into a building, they will make a huge effort to get behind someone so they don’t have to open their own door. A freebie!

    157 years ago this day the Battle of Antietam, bloodiest day in American history.

    Up until the mid 1930s there were events at the site on the anniversary attended by national politicians and senior military personnel.

    70 -75 years seems to be about the limit when big historical events are commemorated and publicly acknowledged in the US before passing totally into history. Back in the day I worked n the archives of our city newspaper (founded in 1764) and would run across obits of the last Revolutionary Vets in the 1830s.

    Eventually even the events 0f 9/11/01 will fade into history.
