NEWA New Video Message From Your Blogger JHK


The New York Times staffers wanted to change the paper’s longstanding motto, All the News That’s Fit to Print, to something more cutting edge, more of-the-moment, more congenial with the crypto-gnostic social justice impetus to change human nature in order to make the world a better place.

My personal suggestion was All the News That’s Fit to Print for Angry, Hysterical Women and Their Intersectional Allies, since The New York Times is now an advocacy rag, but the staff choice apparently is The Truth is Worth It — or perhaps The Times paid some Madison Avenue logo engineers for that.

And one is prompted to ask: worth what, exactly? If “truth” actually amounts to “lived experience,” as The Times insists, then truth can be whatever you say it is — the bedrock ethos of all tyrannical political movements. To me, The Truth is Worth It sounds suspiciously like The Ends Justify the Means, and anyone following the so-called Resistance the past three years may have noticed that’s exactly how it operates.

For instance, Resistance team captain Elizabeth Warren referred the other day to the 2014 “murder” of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri “by a white policeman.” Of course, Ms. Warren was speaking her “truth.” Now, it happens that the US Department of Justice under Eric Holder (this was the Obama administration) determined that it was not murder, as did an inquiry by the State of Missouri — rather that Mr. Brown was shot after attacking officer Darren Wilson in his police car and attempting to grab his gun.

Did Senator Warren not believe former attorney general Holder? Was there some other authoritative opinion she was referencing? Or was she just making shit up on-the-fly to juice an audience? Could she have had any other purpose than to provoke racial animus? Is that what this country needs? More tension between blacks and whites? More reason for suspicion and hatred? Is that where you want leadership to lead you?

Senator Warren’s remark pretty obviously demonstrates the Resistance’s tenuous relationship with reality. Her rival, Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted out substantially the same thing last Friday. Do they actually believe what they are saying, or is it simply a tactical move because it’s worth it to stir up racial animosity if you want to become president? The media gave both of them a pass on that ploy.

A few weeks ago, podcaster Dave Rubin had “spiritual teacher” Eckhart Tolle on for a chat, and Mr. Tolle made the surprising remark that the current sorrows of the world were due to an excess of yin and not enough yang, meaning, he went on to explain, too much of the female principle in operation and not enough of the male principle. This crack made Dave Rubin blink a few times, especially coming from the most serene celebrity on the planet, a fellow far less excitable than the Dalai Lama, and a demigod to the yoga pants and Chai tea crowd. Too much yin! He said that? Really?

Mr. Tolle is onto something. Just take, for instance, a recent column by The New York Times’s op-ed writer Gail Collins: How to Torture Trump. Could she have put it more plainly? Does she not sound like a woman who has gotten advice from an unscrupulous divorce lawyer (excuse the redundancy)? In fact, the USA is looking like a really bad marriage. The yin of America is stuck in an hysterical rage at the yang. Cis-men whose lived experience includes marriage may be familiar with this stratagem. The prudent men often opt to not engage with the hysteria, which almost invariably amps up the hysteria.

The aim of the national matrimonial hysteria is to make sure that whatever conflict is at issue remains unresolved. The melodrama goes on for its own sake. It’s fun living on the verge of a nervous breakdown. That is exactly why the US political scene is so disordered and distressed. That is why the Democratic Party can’t find any credible male candidates. And that is how come the country happened to elect an imperturbable Golden Golem of Greatness.

      It is hard to earn any Yang money these days. Gin is easier to get than Yin, good for what ails you. We are all born from our mothers, and the female plays the dominant role in many societies.
      Your mom raises you, bosses you around, teaches you how to behave, then turns you out to make a go of it. If you are a male, then you may hook up with a wife, who will lay down the law.
      So guys are pussy whipped right from the start. Since women’s liberation came along, girl power is on the rise. That is ok, but why do they need to use vocal fry and uptalk? It is hard enough to communicate without the nonsense. And you wonder why guys need viagra.

        Yes, how did these two phenomena of speech ever get started? They are sooooo irritating. And to make it worse, uptalk has totally crept into male speech as well. Every statement is a question. Heaven help us!

          Indeed. Come up with batshit insane ideas, make a fuss about them being the only options while batting down any suggestions from the guys, then throwing a shit fit when it becomes apparent that the guys were right all along — possibly with the added fun of women projecting the insanity upon the men and/or screaming “This is all YOUR fucking fault, asshole!” in public, so the opprobrium of several women is instantly directed at some poor schmuck whose only sin was suggesting they paint the room while the furniture was out of the room instead of painting around it, leading to splotches of paint all over the new recliners and couch. This is why many men, myself included, just let them do whatever the fuck they want while reading more JHK and other sites (sort of like Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein), since we know doing anything else will lead to the guillotine or worse.

          • zone45 August 16, 2019 at 10:20 pm #

            He calls his wife Clitler.
            A marriage is a two way street, should be a partnership.
            Not always in balance, it is a dynamic event.
            If you are a family man and dedicate your life to your wife and children, you should get a little bit of respect.

      Typical dem yakking points.

      • FallenHero August 16, 2019 at 10:21 am #

        Climate change is very real, but the dems do nothing to combat this short of occasional talking points or about how (white) america needs to stop doing X. Of course they never mention most of the world’s problem is caused by india and china.

      • JohnAZ August 16, 2019 at 10:40 am #

        Immigration is obvious, too many unskilled folks weigh down the social safety net, which drives up the debt. Leftist, heck, rightists too, the Deep State, have no concept of money vs. wealth, I have not figured out if it is just politics or just sheer stupidity. Or both. Maybe Politics=stupidity.

        Climate change I half way agree with. As a believer in trend analysis, the trends definitely are getting warmer. Leftists want shock treatment, “we only have ten years left”. Rightist reaction is to ignore the issue and it will just fade away. Neither option will work. The right way of handling this is for the Right to join in with the Left in the monitoring of CO2, consistent monitoring of the temperature of the air, sea water and land along with sea level, monitor magnetic field perturbations, sun activity etc. to put together a total picture of what is happening. Credibility with the total picture of CC comes from accumulation of data and that acknowledgement of AGW will not be complete without this proof.

        In today’s world, this is impossible so CC will continue to have nothing done about it. The American public is not going to give up its love of big vehicles without dictatorial command.

        Hmmm. Who is seeking a socialistic dictatorship in America? Maybe that is the Left’s reason for its vitriolic attitude about climate change.

        • Janos Skorenzy August 16, 2019 at 11:31 am #

          In other words, keep studying the problem as a way of avoiding doing what the problem indicates – that of cutting back our industrial civilization. You are obvious to everyone but yourself.

          And again, I think these people are nuts, but at least they have the courage of their convictions – which are being used by the Evil Elite to destroy the West.

          • malthuss August 16, 2019 at 11:47 am #

            Not sure what you mean.

          • JohnAZ August 16, 2019 at 2:38 pm #

            Nope. I am not sure that cutting back on industrial civilization is going to do anything for CC, that is my point. How many people are going to die to implement AOCs GND?

            I agree 100% on your comment about the globalists. The biggest joke is that they care one iota about the effects of CC on the folks, only about the power it gives them.

            In the long run Greenland will melt down and may become a great destination and habitat. So the desire to acquire that place may be a brilliant idea. When push comes to shove, a powerful nation will just invade and take it.
            Getting back to the Yin/Yang topic, the trend is favoring powerful women. The day will come when the USA elects a female leader. It may come sooner than later. That is right, man is smart, woman is smarter.

            zone45,
            If by smarter you mean more vengeful and less likely overall to cut their losses when they know they are in the wrong, then yeah.

            I keep trying to explain to people subtly (outside of here) that most of our behavior and organization is reflected and goes back to our evolution through the hunter-gather process, but the idea seems too much for those not already initiated by their own interests in who and what we are.

            Men literally had to “bring home the bacon” and find the right way with the less amount of struggle and loss.

            Women just had to be the most loud mouthed and persuasive among other women.

            Now there is nothing separating women/men socially or work wise for the most part and they know we can’t just hit them, so there is nothing stopping them.

            Hey Dog,
            You got that right. Trees are the answer.
            And bees and birds and butterflies.
            It is right in front of our faces.
            Just yesterday a dove made a mistake and fell down my chimney. I happen to have a shop in my basement, so I noticed what happened. I turned on the lights and saw it hanging from a wire, then it rushed into a corner to get away from me. I gently persuaded it to perch on a broom stick and took it into my hands and brought it upstairs and set it free out my back door. It flew up into the trees.
            I saw it later and it was doing OK.
            Doves are not the smartest birds in the world, but I hope it learned a lesson. It was an amazing experience for me.
            Kind of weird and crazy. Doves are a symbol of peace.
            So there is a message.

          The problem with monitoring it is that the data are unreliable. There are satellite measurements and land-based ones and it is complicated by heat islands effects. Actually, it is more than unreliable and definitely dodgy. Then there is another layer of mendacity laid on top of that, which is the media reporting.

          Here is a Dutch example I came across recently.

          youtube.com/watch?v=S2Bm2HD0NRk

          It is in Dutch but subtitled. It is an interview with a Marcel Crok called Het Raadsel Van De Verdewenen Hittegolven (the mystery of the vanishing heat waves). The Dutch Met Office recently recalculated the fifty years worth of temperature measurements at their main weather station up to 1950-51, which was when they changed the measuring apparatus. They had to apply a bit of statistical ‘homogenization’ and sundry dodgy practices, of course, and guess what? The high temperatures for the early period were revised downward and most of the heat waves for that period disappeared accordingly (just like the Mediaeval Warm Period also vanished). There had been more of them in that first half a century than in the subsequent 67 years but that is all changed now and we can see that the rate of heat waves is increasing, because of global warming!

          I expect this is going on all over the world.

          You need to look at the history of the AGW scare as an entity. It fits the collective fantasy pattern. The lately deceased Christopher Booker analysed it very well. Also look at Donna Laframboise’s blog if you haven’t got time for her book. She studied the IPCC. This disgrace of an organization with its ‘100%’ peer reviewed referenced reports is unbelievable.

          There is no uncertainty about AGW, it is quite simply nonsense.

          • Sean Coleman August 16, 2019 at 12:44 pm #

            I am talking about measuring temperatures rather than CO2. The latter has been at much higher levels in the (admittedly distant) past. It is correlated with increased temperatures but lags it rather than precedes it, so that it is far likelier to be the result of (natural) warming than its cause.

          • JohnAZ August 16, 2019 at 2:50 pm #

            That is my point. I do not know if AGW exists at all. There is something causing ice deterioration, high temps in Alaska, tundra melting. The biggest impact on humanity will be when the flow of the Ganges, Irrawaddy rivers runs low due to no glaciers in the Himalayas.

            What I am suggesting is that instead of a bunch of global warming nuts running around spot checking data that looks favorable to them, both sides sign up to a set of consistent reliable monitor points for air temp, water temps, CO2 levels and sea level. Everything has to be measured to reduce statistical noise, for example sea level being measured at the same sites, same schedules especially tidal times, same dates of the year to eliminate heating and cooling effects and current effects. Anything to eliminate other influences. If the data is reliable and repeatable, then it means something.

            If you want to know why the weather is messed up, do the forbidden and take a look at the PTB and their geoengineering efforts. Dane Wiggington has a science based site examining that crime against humanity.

            But we’ve been indoctrinated with “the narrative” that we are responsible for exhaling too much CO2 and must be taxed into neo-feudalism by the Elite to solve the problem.

        • Uncle Bob August 16, 2019 at 10:01 pm #

          I’m a global war.ing skeptic, both because I know the nimrods have been screeching about only having the years left since 1988 (so we should’ve been dead 20 years ago) and several stories revealing the globalists have monkeyed with both climate models and weather data to get the result they want. Still, I don’t advocate that we pollute all we want and use up all natural resources today, as that’s patently stupid. The big question I have is, it this is a global priblem, why aren’t the Chinese and Indians and others told to not pollute, when they’re free to turn their air black while America is blamed for the problem? Also,who’s going to pay for fixing the problem? I have a suspicion the answer is American taxpayers, right about the time the economy implodes.

            Uncle Bob, it seems like things have got caught up into a race to the bottom. Just burn the candle at both ends. More, faster, better, sell, sell, sell. The media, news, internet, smart phones, and all the plastic crap just continually feed the frenzy. It all seems like a science fiction movie with great effects, until the real storm clouds move into your area and you get a blast of Mother Nature. Then the party is over.

          So, I’m assuming your issue is not with a dictatorship as such, you just wouldn’t want a ‘socialist’ one?

          The irony is that, If there’s a dictatorship (a real one, not a quasi-deal, conjured duo in the fevered butt-hurt minds of he Right), it’s way more likely to be a Right Wing deal (viz. Gilead)…

        Her main talking point, actually, is ending our trillion-dollar regime change adventures abroad. She should know, since she is a soldier (and in fact at this moment is on Guard service overseas).

        As for the rest, yes, she’s similar to the others. But she’s the only one on that stage talking about the elephant everyone else cares to forget: our nearly two-decade-long eternal wars and what they’re doing to the country, not only abroad but internally.

            This is what Bibi Netanyahu said while sitting at the head of that private table in Fink’s Bar (transcribed from a secretly recorded audio of Netanyahu at that meeting – words that few Americans, Israelis or others have seen or heard until today):

    There is another angle to the yin and yang aspect – there is the implication of balance. However, we no longer have balance in our civilization, but an all-out embrace of consumerism, nonstop news, and over-consumption. Like anything that can’t last forever, this is going to fail and possibly sooner than we expect. See darkageprep.com/ for more.

    I always think of the American version of “who reads the papers” from “Yes, Prime Minister” when I think of who reads the New York Times: “The New York Times is read by the people who think they ought to run the country.” In that respect, it’s the mirror of The Guardian in the U.K., which I suspect a lot of New York Times readers like myself also read. As for the yang, I was hoping our host would be referring to Andrew Yang, who has been talking about robot bartenders as an example of automation coming for our jobs. No such luck.

      • JohnAZ August 16, 2019 at 10:52 am #

        I continuously wonder with the downsizing of certain labor pools, retail, assembly and manufacturing, restaurant service people, automated fast food, where are everyone getting the jobs that has pushed the unemployment rates down where they are being bragged on. Especially with the explosion of immigrants we are seeing. Something does not add up.

        • Skylark August 16, 2019 at 11:22 am #

          Touché, it does not add up. Just like before the 2008 crisis, where folks were flipping houses like crazy, and anyone could get a loan: the party was going to go on forever. But something was amiss. I had an uneasy feeling then, and it’s the same one I have now.

          Now the stock market is at record highs, unemployment is at record lows, but it does not add up that the central banks are cutting interest rates. If everything is so great, why do they need to do that? Why not raise taxes to pay off government debt if everything is so great?

          Why do the people I know that are working just barely making it? Hey, everything is great, the unemployment rate is low! What a rigged, phony system, as Robert Reich says…

          But it does add up. Immigration has been weaponized in an asymmetrical form of warfare…as have our black population. Janos has often said that we are under assault.

          It is warfare by other means. Consider Europe.

            Regular welfare is obsolete, too damaging, no one wins. You are right, it is warfare and very effective. The EU and is import the ME and Africa is already starting to pay the price of too many worthless immigrants, Germany is going belly up. If they go, EU goes.

    Speaking of Yin. Look at our two lovely anti-Semitic representatives in the House. Seemingly pissed because Israel would not let them in to bad mouth the State of Israel from the Palestinian side. Then “ a nice guy” in Israel says to Tlaib that she can visit her poor grandmother in the Palestinian area. I am surprised at his gullibility. Then, of course, she would not compromise her “integrity” by making the visit. Gee, what a surprise!

    Why the heck does this venomous duo get such press coverage? We definitely know who the yang is that is in their sights.

      If being opposed to the US propping up the State of Israel is anti-semitic, then I am probably much more anti-semitic than these two. And I bad mouth Israel much more strenuously than I’ve ever heard these two do. I despise the Israeli mindset. They don’t want the same standard they judge other nations with to be used on themselves. And they think they have the right to milk the US as much as they want.

      Yeah……..Fuck them.

    Another insightful and quoteworthy editorial. I would also point out the hypocrisy of the Left, who routinely criticizes Trump as being “divisive” and “hateful” even as they do the same. On that note, I’ll just conclude by saying that if I looked like Gail Collins, I would keep it to myself.

      Here is the hypocrisy of the MSM. The Left initiates the discord, over and over. The Dem motto is tell a lie enough times, leak it to the press, tell the lie again then tell the public that it is the truth because see, it is in the papers.

      Trump responds to this BS and is re crucified by the MSM. This has happened over and over since 2016.

      The United States of America has been the greatest experiment in political history and continues to be a superior force in the history of the world. So far, so good, but times change and we may be nearing the end of the run. But who will pick up the slack?
      The thing with the USA is that it is resilient, and quickly adjusts to change. Also quite fearless in the face of adversity. The problem is that we are all running out of time. As the problems pile up they get harder to solve. As JHK tells us, we face an emergency. The reality check will be a hard hit when the shit hits the fan and it remains to be seen who comes out standing. I put my money on the USA to survive the crisis, the people and patriots in this nation will pull it together.

    In this case, it was probably not holy wisdom being whispered on a park bench (or studio couch).

    Considering how many individuals of both biological sexes have become lost in the never-ending hall of mirrors that is contemporary “gender identity” and its associated distinctions, there is plenty of hysteria being displayed from all quarters. Yet there are serious issues underlying much of our social-political-economic distress. What’s happening now is the messy alternative to actually dealing with the real problems. They are still here, and getting bigger by the day.

  12. Travis August 16, 2019 at 10:34 am #

    Just more proof that if either Warren or Harris become President will be indeed fucked. This whole Ferguson thing really riles me up when I think about it, so over the past few years I’ve tried not to think about it. But it is practically a plank in the present Dem Party to say that Michael Brown was “murdered” by a racist white cop. I’m betting Tulsi Gabbard doesn’t believe this, but she can’t dare to disagree with the official plank. (On a side note, I really wish Tulsi would just leave the Dems and go Independent. Why not? She actually has less change of winning within that party because the DNC along with the Presstitutes are committed to sabotaging her at every turn.)

    Over the past handful of years I have been appalled at the number of cops who DO shoot to kill way too quickly. But the Michael Brown case was not one of those incidents. That cop had no other choice but to stop the threat, and lethal force was the only option. That is what Eric Holder concluded as well. Much to his chagrin I’m sure, but I appreciate him at least for not trying to go forward with federal charges anyway. I know Maxine Waters would’ve if she were AG. Perish that thought.

    • Exscotticus August 16, 2019 at 11:27 am #

      >>> Over the past handful of years I have been appalled at the number of cops who DO shoot to kill way too quickly.

      So am I. But I’m also keenly aware that, more often than not, it is whites on the receiving end.

      The Daniel Shaver shooting really stands out.

      The safest thing to do appears to be to avoid police altogether. If you find one barking orders at you, follow them like your life depends on it. It does. If police are giving you conflicting orders while pointing guns at you, keep your hands high up in the air and don’t move—even if they tell you to move. Just keep your hands raised and wait for them to tackle you or tase the shit out of you. Hopefully they won’t choke-hold you to death in the process.

      • Janos Skorenzy August 16, 2019 at 11:45 am #

        Yes, then more show up and bark other orders. A feeding frenzy of sharks. Tase, put tape over a person’s mouth, knees on chest, etc. Just hope you aren’t over weight and you heart can hold out.

        The other day someone made the mistake of running and got shot in the back. They aren’t supposed to do that unless the person is overtly dangerous. But I guess that’s passe now too along with all other decency.

        • Exscotticus August 16, 2019 at 11:59 am #

          Dems routinely claim that the AR-15 is a “weapon of war”, but then fail to explain why it’s OK for civilian police to use such a weapon against an unarmed man with no criminal history crawling on his hands and knees in his undies.

          You can’t have it both ways; if the AR-15 is a weapon of war, then all civilian LEOs need to give them up. If a scenario calls for an AR-15, then we’re obviously at war, at which point let the military handle it. Of course, no military uses the AR-15, but that’s beside the point.

          “The other day someone made the mistake of running and got shot in the back.”

          Janos,
          Not a mistake if, for example, the suspect is obviously deranged and running towards a group of people who a reasonable man might consider be in danger. Suspect must have the means to carry out the outrage…large stick, broken bottle, knife, or 200+ lbs of throw-weight, etc.

          It’s a judgment thang….

          • Exscotticus August 17, 2019 at 2:10 pm #

            >>> large stick

            I don’t think we want as a general rule that a man carrying a broom running from police can be shot in the back.

            Of course it’s a judgment call. Isn’t everything? Janos’s point is that there seems to be a rather significant number of poor judgment calls.

            Here’s the incident.

            Police claim they found a firearm after they shot him.

            The problem is that police also claim that the victim “reached for a firearm” before the shooting. The claim was disputed by witnesses at the scene and by the body-camera footage.

            The victim did not have any weapon in his hand, and had not shown any weapon when he was shot in the back and killed.

            If this goes to trial, my guess is that the police will win. Why? Because no one will be able to dispute the claim that a gun was found on the victim. And the jury will conclude that the ends justify the means.

      “Maxwell, 57, the alleged madam to the multimillionaire pedophile, was scarfing down a burger, fries and shake al fresco at an In-N-Out Burger on Monday while reading “The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives,” a nonfiction best seller by journalist Ted Gup.

      Sitting alone with a pet pooch, she was surprised to be found and told an onlooker, “Well, I guess this is the last time I’ll be eating here!” ”

      The symbolism of eating at an “In-N-Out” Burger is just hilarious. And that book? Wow!

      It is about pedophilia, and drugs, and trafficking and guns. That is what is keeping the globalist boys afloat.

      Trump has had some success manning up some anti smuggling activity and the world markets decline a bit . Surprise, Germany is in trouble and they carry the EU on their shoulders. Hong Kong is getting restive with the declines in the Asian economies. The globalists are getting nervous.

      And rightfully so!

        The Epstein story and the desperation by some of our highest-ranking politicians to keep that border wide open at all costs, are related.
        That’s why Epstein is dead.

        You are wrong, John. It is not about pedophilia, drugs, etc. Some folks like beer, sporting events on tv and Pornhub, others prefer white wine, the museum and a clandestine passionate affair. As Barbra said about Michael Jackson’s pedophilia, “His sexual needs were his sexual needs.” This show starring Mr. Epstein’s predilections is put on mostly for our benefit. People get upset, mostly because the victims are never the elites own children. These shows keep the folk quiet for a bit, keeping at bay what is really happening. It is always and only money, resources, at bottom that is firing the engine.
        Isn’t it thrilling to think of someone with the power to walk into a an American federal prison, go up to the cell and murder the man who is the top story in the world’s MSM? Worth 5 stars! Was the warden in on it, the guards? Was a meeting held before the murder to coordinate their moves? We are sucked into their stupid, empty lives, but we’re never told the truth about the money.
        For now, Mr. Epstein has used up his 15 minutes and we have no idea what was happening behind the scenes, and the show’s diversionary target is never exposed. Show’s over. Nothing to see here; move on.
        Given the democratic candidates stature, they are bound to provide us with something nasty soon enough.
        The Trump election gives indication that the people are not buying the story anymore.

    Somewhat surprised JHK didn’t go one step further, saying “the Yin and the yang in the US is currently ‘separated’, needing ‘some time apart’…but all signs point to it ending in full and violent divorce played out in a civil war rather than in civil court.” That’s the complete analogy.

    That such obvious race baiting just passes without any notice (or at least reference…for obvious reasons) by the legacy mockingbird press, just further demonstrates their corrupt bias and “fake-ness”.

    How any intelligent group could assume nobody in fly-over land notices these things is becoming impossibly to explain without including some label in reference to a mass pathology. They hand the keys to the kingdom to Trump…on a golden golem worthy platter…every time they do this (which now has become every second of every moment of every day). His adversaries are clearly more dangerous than even he is.

    Try reading the torture Trump article. ‘All the news that is fit to print.

    Behind a paywall. In America that is the way it goes. The classes draw ever apart and the upper 10 percent now screws everybody else. Their stratospheric wages now easily double the national average.

    The blank screen at the Times asks you to sign up. It really says says the info is not fit for print. For you. Unless you pay.

    A work of the have-it-alls who copy everyone above them. Caricatures of real life these masters of the flyover people. Flown over people who now don’t matter any more than a polar bear does so convinced their betters are with the power of their magic media.

    Entertained to death masses fight with mad vigor to keep the oppression going on. The media machine works . Everyone still eats. The familiar comforts so well and the alternative requires thought. Thinking is a skill that has not been taught in America for many years now.

    Lead by a 1% some of whom toy with the idea that they can put their soul into a computer chip and live forever. An even more deluded belief that being OK with wanting to live your life by proxy over a video screen. Rather than address the lunacy of this singularity, the time has come to let such out of touch lunatics know that as long as there are people around; a computer with their chip in it will be found. The smoke will be let out.

    Funny that divorce is mentioned.
    Someone close to me is embroiled in a divorce, and the “other woman” is a pussy hat wearing ‘feminist’ working for one of those not-for-profits that allegedly has helping women as its mission, but in reality the women they help are the ones making big salaries while attending events and having their pictures taken.
    The pro-woman stance evidently does not extend to not pretending to be another woman’s friend while making a play for her husband.
    Sorry for getting so personal, but I believe it has larger societal relevancy, because this is how these people are, and this is how they think.

            Yes, it’s good to de-link bad personal behavior from political ideology. Yet somehow every mass shooter is linked to Trump , even the ones who are avowed socialists. Every neo-Nazi is linked to Trump by the MSM, even though the President denounces racism and extremism.

            So rather than de-linking bad personal behavior from politics, the MSM invents connections where none exist – when it suits their agenda.

    Our esteeemed mayor-cum-presidential candidate Pete Buttbuddy is circulating the same racial BS after one of our police officers shot a knife-wielding attacker with a lengthy rap sheet a month ago. Of course it’s the cop’s fault. His national-level proclamations about how its the fault of the police are really not going over well with our local officers……… go figure.

    • Beryl of Oyl August 16, 2019 at 11:54 am #

      • Travis August 16, 2019 at 12:22 pm #

        Depends on what kind of city governmental structure his city has. A lot of cities, like Austin here, have a City Manager that serves as the direct boss over the Chief of Police and other agency heads. Power to hire and fire, and so forth. But, the Mayor and other council members hire the City Manager and can fire him, or her. But it’s easier said than done to fire a CM just for being lousy because the contracts are such that the city has to pay a hefty monetary severance package, unless it can be proven that the CM committed a serious offense that violated the terms of the contract.

            Well everyone who runs for President thinks they have a particular brand of magic. But it’s just that each one has their own flavor of narcissism.

            A Mayor with a City Manager style of government isn’t necessarily “impotent”. Some Mayors hold the Manager’s feet to the fire. Some are content to just let the Manager take the blame for political cover. I’m seen both types here in my city. I don’t know exactly how this guy operated. But I certainly don’t want him to be President regardless. Especially since he’s a Naval Spook. We have enough Spooks running things as it is.

      Mayor Buttplug may be an excellent compromise candidate for the Dems, however. Jim states the Dems are having trouble fielding an adequate male candidate. Well, Pete looks like a male, almost. He can fill the bill, and most likely will garner support from anyone who bristles at the prospect of listening to schoolmarmish lectures on tolerance and diversity for 4 years from pres Liz Warren. I’ve already advised Mayor Pete to change his name to Mayor Pedro, for obvious reasons. A bigger problem for Mayor Pedro is that he has 0 support from blacks, who don’t like queers, ‘specially honky queers. Also there’s the matter of South Bend police shooting a black man who threatened them with a knife. Pete was out of town when the incident happened, which didn’t go over too good with ‘The Community’. “Our people are being shot, and you are in SCarolina telling people all lives matter”, they shouted at him at a town meeting. It seems like in SBend, Indiana anyway, Democrat BS rhetoric has run into hard reality.

Then might wanna consider ignoring all the current electioneering bullshit as well. It’s meant to literally drive people insane (obviously!) and has no bearing on the eventual actual running of this country anyway, which all happens conveniently out of sight by un-elected “responsible people” who “know what’s best for us.”

    The Hill

    Democratic presidential candidate and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang said during his recent visit to Iowa that he’d challenge President Trump “to any physical or mental feat under the sun,” adding: “I mean, gosh, what could that guy beat me at, being a slob?“

    Yang made the remarks, which have recently begun to pick up traction online, at the Iowa State Fair this past weekend.

    Footage of the moment carried by ABC News also shows the presidential candidate saying, “Like, what could Donald Trump possibly be better than me at? An eating contest?”

    “Like something that involved trying to keep something on the ground and having really large body mass? Like, if there was a hot-air balloon that was rising and you needed to try and keep it on the ground, he would be better than me at that,” Yang continued. “Because he is so fat.”…

    “No one wants a president who doesn’t seem like they can run a mile,” he went on, adding, “I don’t think Donald Trump could run a mile … what does he weigh? Like 280? I say he like passes out at like the quarter-mile mark.”

    JS: Andrew Yang has hit on a winning strategy. He needs to tear off his shirt and start doing push ups. Show up in front of cameras in a track suit, etc. We’ll do the rest. We’ll meme Trump into oblivion. Our Kung Fu is strong. Just keep mentioning Whites and we’re with you. No one else will. Ridiculous? Of course. All of it.

            Trump’s deference to Israel and Netanhayu is probably the only reason he hasn’t been murdered or impeached and removed from office.

            Also interesting that Israel is encouraged to have strong borders and tight control over who comes in but, America is the world’s toilet. That obnoxious plaque on the Statue of Liberty that tells the world to unload its dead weight upon us also reveals the Tribal nature of the author (Emma Lazarus).

I think the number is 30% of the AA population in the USA is either diabetic or pre-diabetic. The kidneys stop working, circulation becomes negligible.

    10 or 12 years ago when I first started following this site, JHK struck me as pretty solidly Democrat. I wouldn’t say he’s a libertarian yet, but I find it gratifying to find even an Obama voter recognizing that the Democrat Party has gone completely off the rails.

  31. The New York Times is indispensable. I have not been looking at any internet or other media for the last month and a half (being out of my mind and body on a wilderness journey), but pleased to see it is exactly where it should be, the center of gravity in the rarefied world of print journalism.

    Its editorial staff is completely transparent. Its viewpoint is never ambiguous. The ranks of its columnists form a comfortable spectrum of good and bad, boring and interesting, inane and thoughtful. Its editorial staff deserves credit for attracting prestigious and far-out guest commentaries.

    Its reportage is best-in-class. International coverage is excellent. While the NYT frames its editorial-board views in clearly opinionated terms, its feature reporting is relatively objective, deeply researched, and in broad terms excellently produced, graphically and textually, and in its online efforts, second to none, and its stock price reflects its position as survivor of the economic and socially-driven contraction of legacy print media. Its platform attracts the best art and writing, for every topic.

    The New York City point of view is largely anachronistic to much of the country. Who cares about musical theatre? Does anyone in America relate to Art History? For that matter, the quarterly Mutual Fund and ETF report? Or T Magazine featuring High Fashion art concepts? Whole sections devoted to the City’s Real Estate?

    The demographics of New York City are very different from the rest of the country and it would be disingenuous to pretend that New York doesn’t consider itself above and apart from the rest of the country, if not the world. It acts in good faith to cover the minutiae of life in far-flung America, while maintaining exceptionally deep coverage in its foreign bureaus, but does so from its geographical position at the center of global finance, politics, and culture.

            I have an unlimited residence permit in Germany. Entered using a std. tourist visa and then applied for the residence permit. Am married to a German so getting the permit was not difficult. Had I not been married, I would have needed a job offer from an employer to stay any longer than 3 months.

            From the Land of ‘Not Nice’ comes a story in the New York Post about a wannabe slumlord who carved out tiny living units within his modest condo in ‘Being John Malkovich’ style 1/2 floor like apartments with ceilings as low as 4 1/2 ft. Leave it to a Chinaman, one Xue Ping Ni, to innovate in this way, by exploiting tenants on the Lower East Side (Chinatown, presumably). The place was raided by inspectors from the city Buildings Department & quickly shut down.

            Another example of “our strength” it appears. The Chinese are especially flagrant abusers of us gullible Whites, flouting our rules of ‘unearned privilege’ to a loser’s wailing refrain of “nothing can be done to stop this.”

            The article, which is linked to below, didn’t specify whether the units were rented out to a medley of peoples or exclusively to other chinese, who have been known in the past to not exactly mind being crammed cheek-to-jowl alongside their co-ethnics. Probably the latter. One can imagine the confusion & general chaos resulting from renting to vibrant enrichers from the four corners of the globe, especially from the tribalist sub-equatorial regions.

          Having a roof replaced. Watching the legal Mexicans who are doing the job adds fuel to my loathing for Trump who mischaracterizes those great hardworking people who are invariably friendly and polite.

          Several years ago my personal residence was re-roofed by Mexicans who did and incredible job in exactly one day and a few hours the following day. When finished not a single scrap of evidence a shake roof had been removed, and underlying wood shingle roof had been removed, and 120 sheets of plywood sheathing applied before the new composition roof put on.

          Meanwhile, about a month before my neighbor had had his smaller roof replaced requiring far less work. The crew doing the job were all white workers who played loud music, swore like sailors loudly enough they could be heard three houses away, and it took them a week to finish the job.

That’s why you of the country club set have always favored open borders – to impose sub living wages on working class people of all pigmentations.

            The trades are desperate for young people willing to get into the kind of work that dirties their hands and the US fertility rate will eventually strip us of all but old coots such as yourself.

            You raise some good points.

            Why do inner city minority youth have so little interest in learning trades? ( I risk being severely vilified to even suggest those kids need to change their values, behaviors, and attitudes.)

            Why are fertility rates way down and sperm counts at less than half of what they were 60 years ago? Could someone – we shall not name – be engineering our environment to decrease population. Aren’t you left-wingers always saying population reduction is a good thing? Now you seem to be saying it’s not. I’m confused.

            I suspect if school budgets weren’t stripped of classes that taught industrial skills as well as also stripping out arts, crafts, music etc, a more wholesome for society version of education would occur to the benefit of all. The mentality that every kid should be able to attend college regardless their aptitude for advanced academics is a contributor to our national downfall.

            You can put all the blame you feel comfortable about doing on the so called libruls but from where I view things the republicans have been throwing so much sand in everyone’s eyes by focusing attention on their hypocritical concerns about family values and the importance of devoting all of our available resources to enriching the already disgustingly rich by keeping the military machine well fed etc., ensuring that the moguls in charge of the medical/health care apparatus stay fat, that as many regulations as possible are eliminated to grease the skids for maximum profits etc.

            I recently finished reading a book about possibly our greatest president ever and poor Teddy must be writhing in his grave seeing what a horrible degradation his party has become mostly responsible for.

            As for the world wide decline in fertility I’d start with having a hard look at Monsanto and god knows what other mindlessly irresponsible enterprises.

          • hmuller August 16, 2019 at 10:50 pm #

            Nice answer, Evelyn.

            Just to be clear, don’t confuse me with Exscot, a Reagan Republican, who probably scoffs at every conspiracy theory and loves the elitist structure of our society just the way it is.

            I think the elitists across the board have totally fucked up our society and planet. And that doesn’t include just conservative Republicans, there are plenty of left-wing Media elite and billionaire contributors to the DNC.

            I believe the vast majority of the Elite live in a world of compartmented information. They don’t see the big picture and don’t much care if they are taking the world to hell. They live in a narcissistic, self-centered, hedonistic delusion – wealth, sex, drugs, status, fame and public acclaim, etc.

            So it’s easy to believe selfish short-sightedness is the crux of the problem. But this is where I stand out as a true nut-case. I think there’s a malevolent plan originating at levels beyond human. All our internecine bickering solves little and certainly doesn’t free us from that evil, parasitic power.

            One more observation, Evelyn. We have been indoctrinated to believe every problem can be solved by throwing more money at it.

            I think our society is sick in its soul. Some symptoms: hopelessness, apathy, giving up on improving oneself. living for the hedonism of the moment, nor building a future. I think, you get the idea and could add many more examples. (Maybe even some which don’t mention Trump. LOL)

            Here’s a headline that could apply to many school districts:

            NYC Public Schools Spent $24,109 Per Pupil; But 72% Not Proficient in Reading, 72% Not Proficient in Math

            cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/no-1-nyc-public-schools-spent-24109-pupil-72-not-proficie…

            I believe the dumbing down of America, the demoralization of society, the impoverishment of the middle class, the destruction of traditional values, and much more is not the unconscious work of history’s tide but part of a deliberate plan.

            Once in a while, Exscotticus, you write a whole (if short) paragraph that I can get behind.

            I’m sure there are lots of discrete conspiracies of various kinds. But I find it mostly takes the religious mind to be partial to the overarching ones (a couple of notable exceptions on here, which don’t invalidate the generalisation, IMHO).

            GA, conspiracy theories are like farts. Those of other people stink; your own smell good. So which ones do you believe in?

            For example, I think one would be overly trusting of the authorities to believe Epstein really committed suicide.
            (Given the history of those in power to lie to the people,)

            Understand, we are never given all the evidence to contradict the official narrative. I don’t think you need absolute proof positive to justify having doubts.

            To clarify, I’m not stating I know for a fact Epstein was murdered. I’m saying the case is mighty suspicious. Put it next to many such suspicious cases, and skepticism of government is justified (in my humble opinion)

          • hmuller August 17, 2019 at 11:42 pm #

            GA, did you notice the rhetorical spin in Exscot’s statement?

            “There’s something kooky about people who immediately conclude that every incident is the machinations of aliens or a secret society one-world cabal. Life is not actually like the superhero movies.”

            1) I must be “kooky”, That conclusive label is a convenient place to begin..

            2) I “immediately conclude”. I don’t wait, think, weigh evidence, or engage in tentative hypotheses. Oh no, I rush in and “immediately conclude”!

            3) “Every incident” I’m portrayed as not holding back on anything, but reaching silly conspiratorial conclusions EVERY DAMN TIME on EVERY ISSUE! Beware when you see the term “every”. A big broad paintbrush is about to emerge.

            4) “Secret societies” are of course a ridiculous idea. No such things exist anywhere on earth; or if they do, they have no real power. We all know that, right?

            5) I never mentioned “aliens”; I mentioned non-humans.

            6) My ideas are characterized as of the “superhero movie” genre. Hence, further discredited since we all know “real life” is not like some comic book inspired superhero movie.

            Do you see GA, how language is weaponized? Of course you do. You too spin, twist and weaponize language all the time. I on the other hand never do. Well, maybe just a little.

          • EvelynV August 18, 2019 at 12:06 am #

            Elysianfield – why would you think not diverse? Plenty diverse where I live – young white people, middle age white people, old white people, and a lot of wonderful hard working Mexicans doing yard work.

            120 sheets was an approximation. A unit and a half had been delivered when a project began and some of the sheets had been used for siding. A unit is 80 sheets. Probably a little less than 3000 but some of the plywood used for an attached garage roof. SFootage of a garage not included in SF of residence. Nothing extraordinary about house, built in early 50’s.

            To clarify, I’m not stating I know for a fact Epstein was murdered. I’m saying the case is mighty suspicious. “

            I haven’t said a word about Epstein, for the simple reason that I have no evidence of anything at all. I believe he had reason to bump himself off; I also believe other people had reason to bump him off. So neither version would surprise me in the least.

            Therefore there is no point in me saying anything at all, because I know no more about it than my dog does.

            Interesting that Ghislaine Maxwell’s dad’s yacht experience led to very similar conjecture from various sources. Nothing was ever proven there either.

            But there’s a difference between conjecture about Epstein’s demise and the real conspiracy nuts who think almost the entirety of the world’s climate scientists have been motivated by evil, ideology or filthy lucre for 50 years. Or are in the service of a Chinese hoax.

            Epstein was the most valuable prisoner in America. Yet, we are told everyone tasked with watching him was incompetent and negligent, taking naps, hours pass without anyone taking a look at him. Oh yes, and the security cameras were not functioning. Of course, what else is new?

            They’ll just pin it all on incompetent low level employees, and it will be forgotten. To me, it reeks to high heaven.

    The City by the Sea

    We are witnessing the turning of the iceberg of the empire that Hillary Clinton – the agent “Deep Throat” – built; starting small, with what turned out at the hearing of Bill Clinton is not a sexual relationship.

    I really apologize for these details, but it is they who give the events what in America called the “Biblical proportions”, because the Bible not without reason mentions the “Babylonian Whore” not only as a City by the Sea, but also as a specific woman.

    Moreover, the first victim of this woman was a member of the Republican Party, US President Richard Nixon, and with him, Deep Throat swallowed the detente of international tension, also known as Detente -1.0.

    And now, when Detente 2.0 looms on the horizon, an analysis of the results and the reasons for the failure of the first is becoming an urgent need for society, including for those who would like to hide the way the SALT negotiations actually took place.

    Suffice it to say that the expert who played the most important role in these negotiations was recently found hanging in the bathroom.

Antifa will scare away voters and nothing will be done about it. There are far too many “never Trumpers” still out there to snarl things. No, Trump is done and I would not be surprised if he calls it a day and then goes to face the NY Attorney General. The democrats are determined to overthrow this ridiculous government and they stand a chance at doing it with the MSM collusion. Then there’s social media to aid and abet. The left will not rest until they hold all the power and then they will hammer and tongs at conservatives. What is there to stop them? Courts? Ha!

    The left has to see white males brought to their knees. They appear to have a good start on that one. There are ample numbers of beta males who will go along with that program. They will settle for careers as baristas and valets and other weak jobs. Even now few can afford marriage and a family. The smart ones will avoid marriage and women altogether. Remember in 4th grade when you touched little Suzie and now 50 years later she is filing charges? That is the direction we are headed.

    The Asian nations are learning from us and will hold the line in their own cultures. This is why China is going to hammer the HK “activists” and who can blame them. Freedom in the USA is a can of worms usually resulting in chaos and perverse outcomes. Democracy is a joke. A sick one.

      I really do not get all the ranting and raving. Trump is no better or worse than any person elected to a position in power. I may be disappointed with him, but he his still treading water. He is the prototypical American. Talk about Magical thinking. When Bush was in the drivers seat, we knew it would take at least 10 years to fix the mess he left in his wake. Obama was a bum, HOPE and CHANGE.
      You saw how that worked out. It is all a smoke screen to keep the public in the dark. The sad thing is that we are running out of time.
      But keep on shopping. Shop till you drop. Food stamps for all.

      And not only in the USA. Was watching video of gruesome events on the streets of London, not just stabbings but people being hacked up with machetes where they stand. Also the act of throwing cups of sulfuric acid into peoples faces. It happens every day.

      It was strange to see video of London and not one white person appears. Africans in leopardskins, Muslims in Burkhas, Hindus in robes, yes, plenty of them. But no English people in ordinary western dress.

        BRH,
        To repeat myself, immigration has been weaponized. With the de-stabilization of the Middle East by the US and other players, immigrants flooded into Europe by the hundreds of thousands. Putin and the bombing of Syria exacerbated the issue. African immigrants being driven by terrorist acts and others seeking economic advantage have severely damaged the cultures where immigrants can gather in large numbers. It has destabilized politics (it has been said that Brexit is partially a consequence of EU immigration policy). Infrastructure and budgets are stretched.

        This flood of immigration is not an accident, but results from simply war by other means. Consider SOMEONE is financing immigration from Central America to the US. It is a death by cancer. A weakened social net breeds political issues…the cost of maintaining the immigrants sometimes can impact defense budgets.

        Consider that the immigrants are not necessarily bad people…just people looking for a better life. They are being manipulated for someone’s objectives.

        It is known as asymmetrical warfare. It has been employed thus throughout history.

        • GreenAlba August 17, 2019 at 2:45 pm #

          “it has been said that Brexit is partially a consequence of EU immigration policy”

          And it’s been stated by me a dozen times on here already that immigration into the UK from outside the EU (that is the Africans and Middle Easterners of whom you speak) does not come under the remit of the EU. The UK was not obliged to take any of the refugees who entered the EU via Turkey/Greece/Italy, for example.

          Only the UK decides who comes into the UK, either as an asylum seeker or an immigrant, from outside the EU. Internal migrants (e.g. Polish builders or Romanian fruit and veg. pickers), are a different matter, but they don’t seem to be the demographic you’re complaining about).

          However, if you’re arguing that people didn’t entirely understand what they were voting for, I’m not going to argue with you.

          • elysianfield August 17, 2019 at 10:16 pm #

            Alba,
            My apologies…But, even after your many comments regarding the reasons for Brexit…I still do not understand a bit of it. I did read, years ago, that immigration policy was a contributor, but I might be recalling the article out of context.

          • GreenAlba August 18, 2019 at 8:44 am #

            It was a contributor, EF, but part of that was based on a misunderstanding.

            I’ve seen people interviewed in the street saying ‘I just want the place to look like it used to’ (i.e. with fewer black or Asian people), as if that had something to do with the EU, rather than being about our colonial past.

            In some areas, there were lots of EU migrant fruit and veg pickers, for example, and in places people didn’t like that. Fair enough. By definition it’s a seasonal job so people aren’t coming with their families, they’re coming in groups, mostly men (but some women too). And because they’re not being paid much, and because it’s seasonal, they’d end up living in rented accommodation with far too many of them in a house to save money. Again, not ideal.

            Also, there were lots of Polish builders, plumbers and the like, which got up the noses of their British counterparts, not least because they work damned hard.

            I’ve never had the pleasure of using any eastern European tradesmen, but I’ve had the questionable pleasure of having a few British ones take the piss. So, if it made the latter pull themselves up by their bootstraps I’d say that was no bad thing. Any tradesman I employ here will cost me more per hour than my husband earns as an out-of-hours GP and at least three times what I charge for my professional services. I don’t begrudge them it (well, maybe a bit!) if they do the job properly, but that’s anything but guaranteed. But I digress…

            There are two ‘immigration policies’ and, as with so many things, people will confuse them.

            EU internal migration policy was decided by the EU, which included the UK. The UK has always had the option of sending people home who hadn’t found work within a prescribed period and it never bothered as far as I can see. Also it had the option of not taking Eastern European migrants immediately on their country’s accession to the EU. It chose not to take that up either.

            But non-EU immigration policy in the UK (the black and brown folks) has absolutely nothing to do with the EU. Why would people coming from India, Pakistan or Somalia have anything to do with the EU?

            The UK had endless perks (not in Schengen, not in the eurozone, not obliged to take refugees entering the EU from Greece, Italy or wherever), but it was never enough.

            Some voters had legitimate grievances. Others wanted ‘sovereignty’ (which they’re about to hand to the US, in terms of the things that actually matter in their day-to-day lives). Others mixed everything up in a general fed-up-ness with the political establishment and their lives generally (following years of ‘austerity’ policies after the financial crisis).

            And, to top it all, the celebrity effect of Boris Johnson would have won it for Remain if he had decided to submit the passionate pro-Remain article he wrote for the Telegraph at the same time as he wrote the passionate pro-Leave one, for the same deadline, and stick with David Cameron. But he wanted to be PM, so he made the necessary calculations and here we all are, looking at the cliff edge.

            Even after being elected (by about 90,000 people) he maintained there was a one-in-a-million chance of us leaving without a deal. Reality begs to differ.

    Truth, truth, so much truth.
    Joe Biden: ‘We have science, they have fiction. We have truth, they have facts.’

    Francis Bacon: ‘What is truth, asked jesting Pilate.’

    But was he really making a jest?. Maybe Pilate was caught in a bad situation between local politics, and its yin and yang. What were the Jewish similarities?

    Talking about yin and yang, we HAD to have Andrew Yang in eventually.

    I keep thinking about Rome…not the usual decline and fall stuff, and how they were sooooo immoral…but what a mess Rome was when Caesar took over. The republic was a joke and incapable of ruling anymore.
    There are rumors Trump would like to be president for life. I support Trump, but not in that way, but when you look at all the loonies and such that oppose him, maybe he should rule for life. Maybe things will be such a crock in America that’s time for a Caesar, that our fractious, multi-cultural, globalist infested ruling class can’t be handled any other way.
    I’m just taking a long, historical view. Perhaps democracy is washed up, and we’re in 100 B.C. all over again.
    And how about that Long Emergency?

    As for all the Democrat nutcases running for office and the antifa types, are they that much different from the Christians when they started pulling down statues of the gods and destroying temples?

    • RIB August 16, 2019 at 6:14 pm #

      Last time I checked the Pagan Pantheon didn’t have any being comparable to the works and words of Jesus Christ. Equating pulling down statues of mythological beings with the pulling down of statues of flesh and blood historical figures is nothing but a case of intellectual masturbation. For the unbelievers: Take a few courses in Christian Apologetics before you classify believers as “nut job relatives”.To quote C.S. Lewis: “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

    That is an old school phrase, perhaps you remember hearing it.
    To cut some slack meant give me a break, or do not take it so hard, or just fuggetaboutit. Back in the day people would cut you some slack.
    People were more tolerant, had strong values and believed in something. We knew that everyone and everything was prone to failure. So your cut your neighbor a little slack. Being generous and sharing in the cause was much more common. There was a feeling that we were all in this together. Now it is every man for himself.

      • zone45 August 18, 2019 at 5:22 pm #

        Agree that tolerance gets abused. It gets old when people take advantage of your love. Left and right are like Yin and Yang, takes both to make the world go ’round. If you get hard core radical on any position, that can be dangerous. It takes an effort to put yourself in the other persons mindset. But there is something to be learned by being tolerant. There are many paths to a goal.
        My approach has been a la carte. I like what the conservatives have to say, and I also like some of what the liberal have to say.
        The problem is that the table is set with very slim pickin’s.

    if one regime has invoked that , ” ….render unto Caesar … ” bit , a hundred and one regimes have invoked it.

    But , again , near as I can tell , the Romans themselves did not hold it to be much of a compliment , or an endorsement , since they executed the guy.

    I don’t know , maybe they executed him despite the compliments and endorsements ?

    Anyway , since philosophically , ideologically , or theologically , you don’t really have any alternative to offer ,

    Then it’s a good bet that what would hold the country together is riches and power.

    All well and good , Russia and China are rich and powerful and I don’t suppose either state is in any danger of becoming a historical footnote.

    I cannot imagine , though , what the significance of that would be to little people.

    For example , as rich and powerful , and long -lived , as China is , yet apparently the anonymous little denizens of tiny Hong Kong and Macau have no passionate desire to join China.

    Is White Genocide in Our Future?

    Is White Genocide in Our Future?

    Paul Craig Roberts

    “The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity. And, the twisted young male who goes on a public shooting spree fits a certain kind of media narrative. But when we actually study the mass shootings that took place in 2019, it’s clear that Patrick Crusius and Connor Betts are not the norm, but aberrations.

    “Mass shooters have no particular ideology. Crusius and Betts were opposites ideologically. (Though both cared deeply about the environment.) Nor are mass shooters a white problem or a black problem. Over the same bloody weekend, William Patrick Williams, who is African-American, appeared in court after being arrested by the FBI for planning to shoot up a Texas hotel with an AK-47 rifle.

    “Looking at the data from the Mass Shooting Tracker, widely utilized by the media, as of this writing, of the 72 mass shooters, perpetrators in shootings that killed or wounded 4 or more people, whose race is known, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other groups.

    “51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino.” — Boyd Cathey, Unz Review, August 13, 2019

    White South Africans believe that Genocide is in their future. Next month a delegation of South African white people is coming to Washington in an effort to secure US diplomatic support to ward off what they fear is black preparation for a genocidal war against the white citizens of South Africa.

    In 1994 the white South African government turned over power to the blacks. For some years the political situation was stable under president Nelson Mandela and the influence of Bishop Desmond Tutu. But as time passed their successors became more radical and less reasonable. In part radicalization stemmed from economic corruption and mismanagement. Unable to meet the expectations of blacks that black government would mean a better economic life, black political leaders sharpened their rhetoric against whites. Other tribes resented the one party rule of the ANC. Another black political party rose and competed with the ANC on the grounds that they hated whites more and would redistribute more from the white citizens than the ANC. To keep its hold the ANC had to match the threats against the white South Africans. Brutal and horrific attacks on white farm families have exploded, and a policy of expropriation of white-owned farms without compensation is being pushed through the government. A leader of the ANC’s armed wing is calling for young blacks to join training camps in preparation for the civil war against whites. Calls for taking up arms against the white citizens are increasing. Calls for cleansing South Africa of whites are words of popular songs and are ever present at political rallies.

    In the United States white people are also being demonized. For the entirety of his academic life Noel Ignatiev, a son of Jewish immigrants from Russia, campaigned for whitness to be abolished. Originally, he seemed to mean that race is merely a social construct and that whiteness conveyed privilege. But people less inclined to abstract thought understood this to mean to get rid of white people. This is the direction in which the attack on white people has gone as we will presently see. Unless this article— diversitychronicle.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/progressive-professor-urges-white-male-students-to-commi… —is a parody on Ignatiev, he himself has come around to the view that white people don’t deserve to live, are a cancer, and should kill themselves. “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it.”

    Another Jew, Jason Blum, has produced a movie for NBC Universal titled “The Hunt.” It is about members of the American elite hunting and killing Trump Deplorables for sport. This is propaganda that accustoms people to murdering the white working class. Commentators have pointed out that it is similar to the Nazi demonization of Jews that led to their deportation from Western Europe and many deaths.

    For anyone capable of thought, Ignatiev’s view that whiteness conveys privilege cannot be reconciled with the portrayal in a movie of whites as game to be hunted like deer.

    In the Unz Review Boyd D. Cathey shows how the media is transforming mass shootings into the work of racist “white supremacists” even though the official statistics show that most mass shooters are not white and few of the white shooters identify as “white supremacists.” The facts are intentionally disregarded, because the agenda is to demonize white people in order to create hatred of them and President Trump. Cathey concludes that in America the war against whites has begun. It is being led by self-hating whites. Although they are not ready to take Ignatiev’s advice and kill themselves, they are willing to kill the rest of us.unz.com/article/the-shootings-the-stats-and-the-violent-war-against-the-deplorables/

    I am surprised that the extraordinary hatred that the white media is orchestrating against white President Trump hasn’t resulted in the Secret Service knocking on doors and interviewing those spewing the hate about their intentions toward President Trump. In former times, the kind of hatred directed against Trump would have been regarded as threats or encouragement of threats against the president.

    In the 1970s Bertram Wolfe, a founding member of the Communist Party of America, told me that communists spoke violently of those they intended to eliminate and identified them with snakes, vermin, and other creatures that ordinary people were accustomed to killing. Wolfe said that the characterization of people as snakes and vermin made killing them more acceptable. I knew what he meant as I once had a communist propaganda poster that gave the bankers and capitalists being rounded up the faces of rats and pigs. This is now being done to “whites.”

    White people are too insouciant to realize that they are being set up for future genocide. Here is what Reza Aslan, a TV host and professor at the University of California has to say about white people:

    “The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters—ALL OF THEM—are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicted from society.”

    Where is “white privilege” when a refuge from Iran can call for the eradication of Presiden Trump and everyone who elected him and remain a University of California professor and TV host? Isn’t Reza Aslan a terrorist? He is calling for the President of the United States and half of the US population to be killed. Doesn’t this deserve investigation? How can a gun owner be investigated if a terrorist like Aslan is not investigated? Aslan hasn’t even been censored by Twitter.

    Insouciant white people can learn what is being prepared for them by reading Matt Bracken in American Partisan: americanpartisan.org/2019/08/the-lefts-america-hating-murder-pornographer/

      As I have said before , I suspect Gay activists and Feminists are really something of a joke.

      A much bigger problem , maybe THE problem , on that score is the sexual revolution that heterosexual males have themselves subscribed to.

      It’s kinda a given , I think , that you get your ass kicked when you deliver yourself up to your enemies.

      In the same way , I think a much bigger problem than people who hate whites so much they want to exterminate them ,

      is your own decided unwillingness to see that the United States has a long tradition of screwing the natives , whoever the natives happen to be at the moment.

        And I suspect , not for any great or complex reason , but for trivial and pathetic reasons.

        Like they can’t give you a coherent or credible reason why war with Spain in 1898 was necessary ,

      ###########################

      This hate whitey rhetoric that’s become prevalent in the media and dare I say in public schools and colleges, ordinary people out here leading everyday lives are beginning to take note, and its making them nervous. Dems are worried about the ‘white woman vote’; well let me tell you, ‘white women’s’ children are dear to them, and when you start talking about ‘white privilege’ and ‘white genocide’, even the most woke soccer mom (of which there are legions around here) percieve you are talking about their own little ones. Combine that with the steady stream of reports of mayhem and bloodshed occurring in black and Puerto Rican population centers a short 20 min drive away, ‘White Women’ might begin to reconsider their support for ‘the resistance’ and their hatred for the president.

      • Ol' Scratch August 17, 2019 at 6:23 am #

        I would say PCR in particular. He’s completely over the top in his criticisms and always directly in point as well due to his vast experience inside the beast. Of course PCR and JHK are already completely marginalized, as most mainstream sites view links to theirs as a sign that you are a complete whack job. There’s also value as a honey pot in Jim’s site here, as you know without a doubt we’re all being monitored. It’s a great way for TPTB to keep their finger on the pulse of the fringes and even to propagate more disinformation propaganda through paid agent provocateurs.

      Now BRITAIN is Exhibit “A” of where my draconian, but guaranteed to work, solution would cure the U.K. of its problems.

      Why do I keep harping on the billionaires? The global billionaire class is the keystone in an archway, from which hangs the NWO (aka JWO) chandelier.

      The walls and adjacent blocks are the institutions of the NWO which are transcendent from the nation-states of the world.

      The chain’s links are the Heads of the Central Banks who are conduits for TPTB.

      The arms of the chandelier are the governments and regulatory agencies.

      The wire that links the various parts of the chandelier together is the global supply chain.

      The power cord is the global financial matrix.

      The lights are the media, sports, and entertainment matrix.

      The octagon chain and numerous other fancy parts are the countless contracts and 3rd parties that bind and separate us from our rights.

      The thick layer of dust over the other elements are the countless parasites, petty rent skimmers, useless eaters, unwanted immigrants, etc.

      The spider webs and spiders are the professional pests we all know about. i.e. academia, moneychangers, unethical merchants, idiot managers, insolent bureaucrats, etc.

      The paper wasp nests hanging from the undersides of the chandelier are the Imperialist Armed Forces that protect it.

      Who is underneath this ghastly and vile chandelier? WE THE GOYIM! Working under the hot and glaring light and suffering the regular drift of dust and spiders that regularly fall down from that accursed chandelier.

      I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface of this metaphor but, I think an artist could draw up something captures the full imagery.

And of course that will destroy the West for all intents and purposes, at least from our point of view. Anything that remains won’t have anything to do with the traditional nations that once comprised the West and will be utterly alien if not hostile to our descendants.

          Janos,

          Below is an interesting proposal to consider. If 300 million Chinese migrate to Africa and nature takes its course, will we end up with a continent of people resembling Tiger Woods?

          It’s my experience that Far Easterners (Chinese, Koreans, Japanese) don’t hold a very high opinion of Africans. Would they mate with them or drive them away, maybe even to the point of genocide?

          “In a two parts article Asia Times argues that 300 million Chinese will soon migrate into Africa. This prediction is startling enough to warrant consideration….The 300 million Chinese would replace or join trading minorities like Asians and Lebanese in Africa ….At the moment there are less than fifty million Chinese overseas and one million Chinese in Africa,”

            There are three ways to end an insurgency and/or gain political power.

            1) Use overwhelming force and kill all the inhabitants, men, women and children (US war against the Indians)

            2) Disperse the entire population over the Earth, thus diluting their culture and beliefs, making them minorities in foreign lands (As Stalin did with the Chechens in WWII)

            3) Immigrate by the tens of millions into an area, thus diluting the culture and political power of the indigenous.(Again, the US in the war with the Indians, the blacks into our cities, and the current issues of immigrants in the Western countries).

            Which raises the additional issue: do these Chinese bachelors bring their African consorts back to China? What kind of reception would they get?

            Whenever two groups of people have encountered each other, miscegenation (for lack of a better term) has occurred – if only as a result of rape.

            The only exception I’ve found (see the book “Collapse” by Jared Diamond) involves the Vikings who went to Greenland. They killed every Inuit they encountered on sight and never brought home “war-brides”. Before long the Inuit stayed far away from the Vikings.

            As a result, the Vikings never learned the superior Inuit techniques for making hooks, nets, harpoons, and other tools to gather food. The Greenland Viking colonies died out between 1400 and 1500. The Inuit lived on.

    In modern times the word hysteria has become a generalized reference to behavioral patterns and symptoms commonly associated with borderline, histrionic, and/or dissociative personality disorders. At least that’s what I was told. So maybe Kamala and Liz are not just average hysteria sufferers after all. Their apparent craving for sheer power and their willingness to say anything for it, no matter the consequence, seems to be typical behaviors of high functioning sociopaths. And female sociopaths while being fewer in number compared to their male counterparts are allegedly more excessively dangerous. That is of course if you don’t believe that such things are just the products of a repressive and pervasive Patriarchy. Liz and Kamala would definitely say they are for sure.

      ” That is of course if you don’t believe that such things are just the products of a repressive and pervasive Patriarchy. ”

      I don’t believe it . But near as I can tell , that puts me in a really tiny minority.

      For example , when I say , ” Near as I can tell , at least 75% of the male population , yesterday , today , and tomorrow , are ditch-diggers who rule nothing . ”

      As many men as women will deny it.

      Or , to put it another way , in my view , no feminist is so smart or so wily , that about 90% of her work isn’t done for her by men slitting their own throats.

      It seems to be driven by a strange confluence between left wing dems and the legacy media. It almost appears that it is planned and coordinated in advance. One has to wonder, are organizations like the NYTs, CNN and MSNBC news gathering operations, or agit/prop shills for woke dems?

          Was in a store yesterday and an enraged Bull Ape stormed in, any humanity he ever had clearly in abeyance. A huge “guy” at the peak of his strength, he could easily kill a normal person with his bare hands. The little security guard didn’t try to tussle with him, but rather pulled out his gun, putting the laser dot right on his chest. Still wondering how close he came to being killed. Some human consciousness seemed to revive, and he left.

          A customer immediately got involved, saying there was no need for that. She may have been right. On the other hand, she may have been wrong. The little guard – he was actually fairly well built and fiery – didn’t seem to have a lot of doubts. Ex-police perhaps?

    I used Google Translate to find the Yiddish word for, “forbidden,” and “farbotn” is what Google Translate came up with. I deliberately used “farbotn” as a poke at the things THEY hate to see brought into the daylight. Where it can be mocked and scorned at the very least.

Everything is bigger over there, so why should caricatures, prejudices and personal flaws be any different?

      But sure as fate, if I attempt to remain at a distance, at least one person (in this instance three) will attempt to lure me in, sometimes, with a legitimate carried-over query, and sometimes, as elsewhere, by provocation.

      Will I respond to the provocation? Who knows – some skirtings in the kitchen are waiting to be stained – and have been waiting years already – so I should probably proceed with that plan first, as it will be significantly less pointless.

    I have the guilt of Gillibrand and the woe of Warren but I can’t shed this skin like some snake, for I only have pangs, pangs of guilt and not fangs.

    My skin is my sin and White is my wickedness. Oh Father, please help me!

    Is not White Angelic and the Devil darkness? Yes, it is the darkies who hurl insults and slurs and parade before me examples of my White sinfulness. Father forgive me, I feel guilty even saying so. Oh, I’m such a wretch!

I noticed that very thing with one individual poster here from the Edinburgh region who said that her mother brushed off the notion of her marrying a black man as if that were a trivial thing.

        I was not in the least outraged, only mystified by your bizarre form of idiocy. My response was simply ‘what colour do you think they would be?’. My memory is rather better than yours, but that’s because liars don’t need to exercise their memory, facts not being the point.

        Under a best case scenario in 100 years a swarthier breed of Scotsmen will march in their kilts playing bagpipes to honor their heritage. Then sit down to a nice plate of haggis covered in curry sauce. And who knows, it may taste better that way.

        Under a worst case scenario they’ll all be bowing 5 times a day towards Mecca.

        In America organizations like the Boy Scouts honor our Native American heritage, even though it mostly got wiped out by the ancestors of those very scouts. (Not withstanding that culture’s vigorous survival in Elizabeth Warren – Warrior Princess.)

        Cultures ascend, descend, merge, and sometimes disappear. Toynbee said civilization is propelled forward by disturbing encounters with strangers. And he wasn’t talking about Barney Frank in the men’s room during a power outage.

        I’ll bet the nice respectable Romans bemoaned property values plunging when those nasty Germans moved into the neighborhood. And so it goes. As Janos would no doubt say: if you’re too weak to fight for your heritage, you will lose it.

          The percentage of Muslims in Scotland is between 1.4% and 1.5%, so if you’re wanting me to fret about haggis and curry sauce, or swarthy Scotsmen facing Mecca, I’m sorry but I can’t oblige. I have actual problems in my life, so no need to invent them.

          This guy might be interested in your haggis and curry idea, though, but he’s not a Muslim, he’s a Sikh – and very highly thought of in these parts. Also a very loyal Scot.

            I’m sure my mother and my husband’s parents would have preferred that, hm, although I’m sure they all just thought they were leaving God to decide on the size of their family.

            And since they are ‘ladybirds’ in all other parts of the English-speaking world (no idea why), even better.

            It didn’t end well, though, for the multiparas. My maternal grandmother died at 56 and my husband’s mother at a similar age, I think. Both fathers, on the other hand, lived into their 80s, their role in the events being less demanding.

            Ladybird? Really, I did not know that.

            To us “lady bird” was a President’s wife, known for planting cherry trees where ever she went. The one she planted in my town’s court house square soon died – like the young men her husband sent to Vietnam. Such a waste.

          • GreenAlba August 18, 2019 at 11:13 am #

            From Wiki, hm:

            “The name coccinellids is derived from the Latin word coccineus meaning “scarlet”.[7] The name “ladybird” originated in Britain where the insects became known as “Our Lady’s bird” or the Lady beetle.[8][9] Mary (Our Lady) was often depicted wearing a red cloak in early paintings, and the spots of the seven-spot ladybird (the most common in Europe) were said to symbolise her seven joys and seven sorrows.[8][10] In the United States, the name was adapted to “ladybug”. Common names in some other European languages have the same association; for example, the German name Marienkäfer translates to Marybeetle.[11]”

            Still doesn’t explain the ‘bird’ bit, though.

            Yes, I agree about the young men sent to Vietnam. I never met my cousin Joe from Flushing (my mother’s nephew) who came home in a body bag when I was a child. They gave her $10K for his life, plus a recording of his dying agonies for some weird reason (he was shot in the spine the night before he was due to go home). His brother ended up a vagrant on the street, which maybe wasn’t unconnected – who knows? Two lost sons.

            And my already widowed Aunt died of a heart attack, being unable to afford her medicine. Land of the free, eh…

      “Studies have conclusively demonstrated that (correct me if I’m wrong Elmore) that ‘liberal’ & ‘conservative’ are inherited dispositions.”

      I have read such studies and, from what I recall’, ‘are inherited dispositions’ requires some qualification. I think what has been shown is that conservatives tend to be more fearful, more risk-averse, less trusting, more likely to believe in conspiracies and more likely to be religious, whereas ‘liberals’ tend to demonstrate the opposite qualities. None of it is set in stone. (And I’m not a ‘liberal’ in any case – not in the American sense anyway.)

      As you suggest yourself, such tendencies tend to be a bit broad brush. And people tend to change their views, sometimes, over the course of their lifetime, as you say you have done yourself.

      When my father and mother spent an entire lifetime amicably cancelling out each other’s votes by voting Labour and Conservative respectively, that was during a historical period where women’s voting patterns (in the UK) tended to be more conservative than men’s. This was generally explained by the fact that women were more isolated from the vicissitudes of the labour market and of harsh working conditions in general.

      My father could never understand how a working-class person could vote Tory rather than Labour, but that was then. Later, the positions changed and women’s voting patterns tended to be less conservative than men’s, owing to socio-political changes and little to do with inherited personality characteristics. And my father was every bit as socially conservative as my mother, so labels never match perfectly anyway.

      Your personal comments are just strange. You talk of becoming a Christian or becoming an atheist as if it were the same as joining a club, but I suppose that shouldn’t surprise me. The idea that someone would believe or disbelieve something either against or in accordance with a separate individual’s wishes is frankly bizarre.

      Whatever was inherited in my family was inherited not simply by me. I have two brothers, one older and one younger.

      In terms of churchy history it went like this:

      On reaching age 16 we were each invited to join the church as adults. Brother no. 1 simply declined, as he didn’t buy it and had enough courage to say so; Brother no. 2 was less courageous and complied, but after the confirmation service (or whatever it was called in our church – I forget) he never went back, except for hatches, matches and dispatches. His wife is C of E, and brother no. 1’s wife is the daughter of a religious minister. She didn’t inherit her parents’ beliefs either, and her parents’ only wishes would have been that she think for herself.

      I joined up and ‘stayed’ for decades, before moving to the same position as my brothers. So nature has very little to do with it. Mature thought and consideration were more relevant.

      But these are elusive terms as anyone would agree. I noticed that very thing with one individual poster here from the Edinburgh region who said that her mother brushed off the notion of her marrying a black man as if that were a trivial thing. Just as she herself does. And even though she became an atheist against her mother’s wishes. Nature or nurture? I would guess 95% nature, but hey, that’s just me. IOW, an inherited disposition.

        “I joined up and ‘stayed’ for decades, before moving to the same position as my brothers. So nature has very little to do with it. Mature thought and consideration were more relevant.”

        We know through studies that the influence of nurture accounts for an inordinate amount of difference in achievement in early childhood but that later in post-pubescent development nature takes over. As with achievement, so with disposition, the same phenomenon applies.

        • GreenAlba August 18, 2019 at 9:36 am #

          I agree with you to a significant extent about the influence of nurture, Tate, but your suggestion about ‘disposition’ has no connection with my point that none of my family inherited our parents’ religious beliefs, which confirm nothing about either nature or nurture. Unless you are suggesting that inborn natural scepticism is more of a factor than education, social influences and early indoctrination.

    To all you folks trying to explain the Brown revolution,

    History is littered with dominant technology civilizations being destroyed by “barbarians”. The Common denominator is,

    I see you have stuff I do not have. I want some of that. Then a leader (Atilla the Hun comes to mind) and unifies the barbarians by saying “We want all of that”.

    The yin and yang comes into play as civilizations lose their yang as living conditions become softer and softer. Liberal policies come into being that allow the takeover of the people much easier by the barbaric crowd.

    Democracies are weakened by the ability of alternative ethnicities to just take over by demographic means. Sounds great to a liberal college type but pretty bad to the folks being taken over. Just ask a few native Americans.

    The really villainous groups are the ones that jump the line and favor the barbarians. Almost 40% of this country is brown currently, add on the White treason crowd and the critical 50% point is in reach. In a democracy, he who owns the ballot box runs the show. The disgusting part is the 10% group who have betrayed the common culture to acquire transient power. South Africa is learning this right now. So will this country.

    The choices are actually very clear now. If the USA wants to continue to be a White based world power with the ability to have less fortunate folk come in as guests, the time to act is now. Simply put, if the neo-Libs acquire majority power, the US as it is now is shot. Just imagine the US with the policies currently being espoused by the Dem candidates. Welfare state run by the third world invaders currently being allowed in by the White traitors. Third world status for the largest consumer group in human history. Think the world is impoverished now? No USA economy, no world economy. TLE!

    How to fix it? Simple and effective. Builds a wall that works, not to stop immigration, just illegal immigration. Scarce resources in the US mean that every person who enters here dilutes the society’s ability to provide services. Stop the uncontrolled influx of immigrants or this country is shot. If it takes $100 billion dollars to stop the influx, we will save it by stopping unsavory characters from coming in. We will save it by decreased police needs, and decreased national security needs.

    Like climate change, every year that goes by without a resolution to this means that the situation will just worsen. Hopefully a political identity in DC will arise to fix this problem. Trump cannot do it by himself.

    • tucsonspur August 17, 2019 at 11:04 am #

      Doesn’t that mean the neo-Libs can never win? Walls can be built and then torn down. If a wall is built, what happens in 2024 if the Dems win?

    From the Land of Nice we have a report from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune of the moral preening ministry of the ELCA, the largest Lutheran denomination in America:

    EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA BECOMES NATION’S FIRST “SANCTUARY DENOMINATION” by Jean Hopfensperger Aug 16, 2019

    The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the largest Protestant denomination in Minnesota, has become the first North American denomination to declare itself a sanctuary church, committed to supporting and sheltering migrants entering the country.
    The ELCA announced its decision last week at a tri­annual assembly in Milwaukee, where leaders also participated in a march and prayer vigil at the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office…

    “Sorry, will be finding another Lutheran denomination,” read a Facebook post by Daniel Wolter, a former Minnesotan who now lives in Iowa. “The ELCA has let politics go before faith. Advocating for sensible changes to immigration laws is one thing. Actively seeking to facilitate crime is another.”

    Right on, Mr. Wolter! Hopefully, ELCA will see a hefty membership & donations decline over the coming year.

      Christianity has become a Demonic force by and large. The Church I go to has many who abstain from putting money in the basket. Not that I think that will be effective (since their allies create money out of nothing and I’m sure will extend them a generous line of credit) but at least it’s something. A good way to save money too. They do have a wonderful Latin choir and regularly perform the Olde Mass.

      Interesting facts:

      On his eleventh birthday, he accidentally shot himself in the abdomen and nearly died. He went to Nainital and stayed for a few months for recovery.[6] Years later, he referred to this incident while with John Lennon and George Harrison while taking LSD.[7] He said, “I know what it’s like to be dead.” This inspired The Beatles’ song “She Said She Said”.[8]

      Early on, Fonda studied acting in Omaha, Nebraska, his father’s home town. While attending the University of Nebraska Omaha, Fonda joined the Omaha Community Playhouse, where many actors (including his father and Marlon Brando) began their careers.[citation needed] Before he attended the University of Nebraska Omaha, Peter attended the Fay School in Southborough, Massachusetts and was a member of the class of 1954. He then matriculated to Westminster School, a Connecticut boarding school in Simsbury where he graduated in 1958.[9]

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Fonda

      Wonder what took him to Omaha (my home town) of all places? Yes, I know that daddy Henry Fonda hailed from Grand Island, Nebraska originally, and definitely carried that Nebraska sensibility with him throughout his life. By all accounts the Fonda household was more than a bit dysfunctional for young Jane and Peter growing up, also a signature trait of oftentimes oppressive religious families of the region and era.

    The root cause of the global financial crisis was undoubtedly a large-scale counterfeit operation ran by the Clintons in the 90s under the pretext of Information Superhighway Project or Dot Com business.

    According to some estimates, Clintons printed and distributed to their Flying Monkeys approximately 20 trillion totally unsecured dollars.

    The connection of the Duke of Cambridge with the department of Isaac Newton, who was elevated to the knighthood by Queen Anne of England for his service to science, the Glorious Revolution and the financial system of England, allows us to hope not only to overcome the crisis of the scientific method but also the global financial crisis, since Sir Isaac Newton is known not only as a scientist who created the scientific method, but also as a person who found a way to stop the malignant development of the Glorious Revolution and associated with it uncontrollable expansion of the money supply.

    William Chaloner was a serial counterfeit coiner and confidence trickster, who was imprisoned in Newgate Prison several times and eventually proven guilty of high treason by Sir Isaac Newton, Master of the Royal Mint. He was hanged on the gallows at Tyburn on 22 March 1699.

    At the University of Washington-Tacoma, Marx’s ‘Labor Theory of Value’ is being touted in assessing students’ writing abilities by a professor called Asao Inoue. The Labor Theory of Value is of course totally wrong. It leads directly or indirectly to all the other errors of Marxian theory.

    The headline reads:

    “American University Holds Training Session on Avoiding Single Standard Grading to Achieve ‘Antiracist’ Objectives”

    Here is the link to the story as reported by AmRen:

      The Labor Theory of Value is of course totally wrong. It leads directly or indirectly to all the other errors of Marxian theory.

      That’s a pretty broad statement. Perhaps you’d like to at least minimally support it?

      • Tate August 17, 2019 at 6:39 pm #

        Actually, the theory of class conflict is intuitively appealing. It can’t really be refuted. But it can only take you so far. It doesn’t acknowledge conflict caused by ethnicity, race, religion, & language. And it can’t effectively address Michel’s “iron law of oligarchy” (q.v.)

        I view class as an ersatz or synthetic ethnicity. It’s true as some have pointed out here — arguments that I have discounted in the past — that human beings will find something to set them apart even in racially & ethnically homogenous societies. (But why add to problems that are endogamous to any society by importing additional ‘diversity’?)

        As far as the Labor Theory of Value, I acknowledge it wasn’t original with Marx, but was earlier expounded by Adam Smith, Ricardo, et al, but it is crucial to Marx’s ideas. Later work (see “the Marginal Revolution”) by a variety of thinkers such as Jevons, Bohm-Bawerk, Marshall, et al as developed in the Theory of Marginal Utility effectively negated a key pillar of Marxian economics, the Labor Theory of Value (which is a special case of value theory.)

        In common-sense terms, how can it be that effort alone should determine the value of anything within the market, broadly understood? It can’t. Professor Inoue wants us to accept that there should be a two-tiered grading system, one for the dull-witted & another for the quick-witted. This can only lead to mediocrity within our institutions.

        Those interested might want to view the vid by Paul Ramsey (Ram Z Paul) on his speculation on the real meaning of the Epstein affair — i.e., that what we are witnessing is just this “product” created by the advancement of incompetents within our institutions (ignore the Nixonian ‘shrug’ or ‘hunch’ in Ramsey’s delivery).

          If you think Trump won with just the rich white vote, or the poor white vote, or even the all white vote—think again. For example, he had about 30% of the Hispanic vote.

          For me, ideology trumps race, gender, etc. For others, race comes first. None of this is accounted for in class-based theories.

    Remember e pluribus unum? In the USA it worked, with widely disparate peoples coming in with very different languages and cultures subsumed into a greater whole.

    I no linguist so I’m just parroting what I’ve read: just look at the English language, a hybrid of Teutonic tongues and Latin and French and other stuff, giving it a distinctive expressive range and vocabulary. A simple example: the word “demand” comes from French. In French it means “ask”. In English it takes on a different character, giving English-speakers access to more and different layers of meaning.

    In language what we’ve done in the Anglo-sphere over the last 600 years or so is to assimilate and absorb, in my uneducated view making English uniquely qualified to be a global lingua franca for doing business and diplomacy but not only that, to be a language of science and scholarship.

    In my view the key to e pluribus unum is assimilation. It worked linguistically for English, it also worked culturally for the USA, again in my view, to the great advantage of the country as a whole.

    So, to JHK’s point, what he’s talking about is the opposite of assimilation, ie dissimilation. This is identity politics, this is what’s being touted by the thinkers.

    So, can anyone tell me how this is supposed to work?

    This may be music to the ears to certain folk on this site, but in a racial and regional conflagration, I put my money on the most numerous, best armed, best trained militarily. Ain’t no secret this describes Whites, particularly Deplorables, these Deplorables also being the backbone of the US military.

    So, what happens? The Blacks, being a relatively small minority, they lose big and massively worsen their position. If they were put-upon before and heavily disadvantaged, can you imagine the shittiness of their situation after a civil bloodbath?

    I figure the Hispanics to be in a better position, being more numerous, but also because so many self-identify as White. Asians too, will cast their lot with Whites, being light skinned, and similar in cultural terms, readily adopting White ways and music and lingo.

    But, out of all this, Blacks get crushed, women too, because in war-time they suffer the worst. You don’t need me to tell you, it’s the same in every war, women suffer hideously.

    So, the big question: what exactly the fuck are idiots like Warren and her ilk trying to do?

    That’s not hard to figure either, as things are generally the way they look. So, how do they look? That they’re trying to enhance themselves, their own notoriety and their own fame and fortune.

    All right, maybe not so surprisingly because they’re politicians they apparently don’t give the slightest fuck as to who lives and who dies. But, as a method of personal enhancement, inciting racial and regional discord is a really stupid way to do it, not least from the perspective of their own self-preservation because, as history shows, in times of trouble even absolute monarchs have a way of ending up in a really bad way. I mean, just ask the Ceaucescus. Oh, that’s right, you can’t, they’re dead.

    • Ol' Scratch August 17, 2019 at 1:55 pm #

      Not sure I’d include Warren with “her ilk” here. She’s basically a mainstream technocrat meant to appeal to all the current Dem bases, and little else. Other than blowing a slightly cold wind of the Wall St banksters skirts, she’s certainly no threat to the status quo, an in spite of some current concerns in some quarters, I’m sure even Wall Street would rally around her if push came to shove (especially if the alternative was Bernie) if Trump were eventually to be found wanting.

      Unlike many on this board, I find the current anti-white male hysteria to be just so much another passing fad, and no particular big deal. Fueled by big corporate money, this MSM blitz is just part of the ongoing show, as all demographics will by and by take their turn (repeatedly) in the barrel as part of the ongoing effort to “make news” by dividing us along whatever racial/ethnic/sociological/economic/political lines possible.

      A little less hyperbole in response is in order.

      • volodya August 17, 2019 at 2:31 pm #

        I agree that the less exaggeration the better, but don’t forget, the USA has had a really crappy record of race relations. Blacks have got real, material gripes. But there’s good ways and really stupid ways of doing things, and promoting inter-racial animosity is a really stupid way, particularly if the aggrieved group is relatively small and powerless. And things can get out of hand as witnessed in 1861 and August 1914. And the “race riots” of the 1960s were no imaginary thing.

        As far as this anti-male stuff goes, time will take care of it. A generation or two will be enough. Male-friendly women will be most likely to reproduce and pass on their male-friendly attitudes to their off-spring. Those women most hostile won’t. They get culled from the gene pool. Bye-bye.

        As far as the anti-white male thing goes, maybe you’re right, that this is a passing fancy. But I’m not as optimistic as you are that it ends well.

        • Ol' Scratch August 17, 2019 at 2:53 pm #

          To be sure, I too find much of the current anti-white male outrage fully justified, even as I find it to be completely misplaced. Where the REAL outrage lies is in class issues; i.e., those who have money and power vs. those who have neither. In that sense, those who have fully justified current outrage and are now enabled to share it so well are completely right, even as they are missing the mark completely, and possibly causing further damage in the process.

          IOW, yes, your past/current oppressors have definitely carried these physical characteristics, but have you really thought it through? Have you really fully considered the nature of your oppression and your oppressors and have you examined your own complicity in your oppression?

          • volodya August 17, 2019 at 3:23 pm #

            Agree on the class issues. The key here, as you say, is to dissect the problems. Yes, White males are the wealthiest, and Blacks in general the poorest (with lower class Whites giving them a run for their money). But what are we talking about here? In my view the fortunes of lower classes in general in the US and much of the western world are diminishing, not just because of racism or bigotry, but especially because of the inordinate influence of a small group of extremely wealthy people on international trade and investment practices. And because of the stranglehold of Wall Street on Main Street.

            Are you complicit in your own oppression? Good question. Maybe the question can be reconfigured: do you support the neo-liberal agenda, having bought into the presentation of open borders as one of tolerance and openness to new cultures and new-comers, as an agenda of people who are superior in intellect and social attitudes. Because maybe you better have a second look at what you’re buying into.

          “Blacks have got real, material gripes.”

          Volodya,
          In 1960 I would heartily agree with that comment. 2019…not so much. In the approx. 60 years since 1960, trillions have been spent, much on their material welfare…to little benefit of them or any other citizen.

          They may have gripes, but not real, nor material, and I reject their demands with derision.

          • volodya August 18, 2019 at 3:09 pm #

            Elysian you got a good point about the trillions spent, this being an example of the road to hell paved with ostensibly good intentions. And there’s other stuff implicit in your answer, that if you want to be treated as adults, with a full complement of moral and intellectual faculties, and as equal citizens, then act the part. Can’t remember who said it, Jesse Jackson I think, a long time ago, that White racists don’t make fifteen year old Black girls get pregnant. And some famous Black actor said not long ago that it all starts at home. It sounds trite but I think it’s true, it really does.

            So, what to do? Maybe nothing. I don’t know if any theoretician in the sociological – cough – sciences ever had a gander at that possibility, that the dysfunction that you see in American Black communities just isn’t amenable to any kind of help, financial or otherwise, barring no discrimination based on race. They help themselves and get their shit together, or not and suffer the consequences.

            An example of a long-standing issue, the dreadful state of education among Blacks: somebody said a long time ago, that education in Black communities will improve when Black parents start giving a damn.

            Anyhoo, the shitty stuff you see in Black neighborhoods, you’re seeing more an more among poor Whites. So is this an example of wiggerization?, ie Black acculturation of Whites?

            Or is it something else altogether with roots in an economy that can’t-won’t account for the fact of human abilities not all being oriented towards dicking with spreadsheets-coding-administrative shit where you talk-talk-talk in an office or sit in front of a screen all day? Not everybody’s cut out for that. A lot of us are wired up for other kinds of work, activities that our betters decided long ago to re-locate to other countries. A large number of us as a consequence find ourselves at loose ends, with no path forward, no job, no prospects, no nothing. What kind of misbehavior comes out of that? The point being that maybe Blacks are as badly affected as Whites.

            So what ails the Blacks? Is it along the same lines as what ails impoverished Whites but with a different narrative wrapped around it, one all about racial victimization?

          • elysianfield August 18, 2019 at 10:07 pm #

            Volodya,
            The genesis of their issues revolve around their incredible sense of victimization, and general loathing of white people…this is often learned on their mother’s knee…I have seen this, and I can say this without fear of contradiction.

            White “trash”, and we both know the type, can manifest every problem found in the ghetto. Their causes are a bit different, however. Blacks highly resent white culture, seek to negate it by their own cultural attitudes. Whites have no such burden…many are weak, disenfranchised, dope addled, ignorant with poor education as a result of dysfunctional homes…some just have bad luck, or bad judgment, or bad home life with early introduction to alcohol, the criminal justice system, drugs, and hot 14 year old neighbors….

            Perhaps racial victimization comes soon….

            “So, what to do? Maybe nothing.”

            Hello volodya,

            I have been at odds with your position that the government should have taken steps to keep the blue collar jobs in America, the main issue being that I do not believe that the tide can be held back indefinitely, and what has transpired since, is the net result of all the players gaming the system.

            I feel for those that live under the rule of an oppressive government, and have had the opinion that individuals ought to be free as a bird, and live anywhere in the world they choose. Considering your posts, I have come to realize that if your nest is being attacked, you have a right to defend it, and if there is any purpose in having a government, as Janos Skorenzy so often promotes, it is to secure the rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.

            So, if the basic needs of the citizens of a nation are not met, then the focus should be on how to meet those needs in a meaningful, dignified manner, and issues like an open door migration policy, need to be subordinate. To drive home the point, as you promote, the government has an obligation to provide for the citizens, not by substituting the dignity of “reliable bread-winner work” with hand-outs, but by taking steps “to keep the blue collar jobs in America”. I think it could be argued that the tariffs are a step in that direction.

            Ultimately, no matter what any government did, just like the projection of 70% of the jobs in China being lost to AI by 2025, I believe that the tide would have swept out the blue collar jobs in America. That being said, the focus going forward should be on figuring out what people can do to regain their dignity and feeling of worth.

            As you point out, individuals are wired differently, and in the early game, the employment opportunities of the 70s did a better job of accommodating the masses in spite of their differences, than that which is available in the end game of today. Modeling it to the extreme, there was a viable job for every family, whereas today, there is one dignified job for 10 families. To me, this explains the animosity, the polarization, the political lash-up, etc..

            Where to from here? For a start …

            From the perspective of a US citizen, the number of mouths that need to be fed in relation to the number of gainful employment opportunities (or that which might be a substitute) needs to be reduced. So, some combination of reduced numbers, and an increase in busywork for the masses that is attached to dignity. It would seem obvious that anyone that advocates for open borders does not care about the citizens of the US.

            From my perspective, number 45 is a pitiful example of a civilized human being in so many respects, but in regard to his attempts to represent the citizens of this country, I would have to give him an A. For those that advocate for open borders, his response is, OK, we’ll bus them to your State/City/backyard. How many open border advocates have an open door policy at their personal residence? Aren’t they essentially imposing an open door policy on many of the residents of this country? Shouldn’t they lead by example?

The Doctrine didn’t have to develop in modern times – it has existed for centuries or even millenia. She was just one of those introducing it into the modern American secular milieu. And again – after we had defeated their enemies for them in Central Europe. Real nice, eh? Never give a sucker an even break.

      The secret to the mystery lies back at the top of your screed with the word ‘dissimilation.’ This differs by only one letter from the word ‘dissimulation’ which means ‘to dissimulate.’ What is to dissimulate? It means ‘to disguise one’s intentions.’

      This suggests that crypto-assimilation is the order of business. It explains why the mouthpieces of the media & the academy tell so many lies, saying contradictory things, sometimes almost in the same breath, such as claiming that white supremacy is an existential threat to the Republic. Also claiming that we are a nation of immigrants who have formed a ‘melting pot’ when the reality is quite different.

      We should understand this clearly: whenever the Cultural Marxists talk about “our values,” they’re pimping for the future ‘Great Replacement’ of the founding stock of this country. Patrick Crusius, the El Paso shooter, committed a heinous crime, but was his Manifesto —actively suppressed by the MSM — so wrong? Once control is gained, there will be no more kumbaya moments touting “our values.” There will only be the hobnailed boot.

      • Ol' Scratch August 17, 2019 at 2:15 pm #

        Realizing of course that to a large extent “the great replacement” is now and has been for some time a demographic certainty, whether the immigrants keep coming or not. The lower classes procreate at higher levels regardless of race, so political power will naturally flow accordingly. White man’s burden indeed!

        • Exscotticus August 17, 2019 at 2:55 pm #

          >>> The lower classes procreate at higher levels regardless of race

          True, but there plenty of poor less-educated whites pooping out kids like no tomorrow. Plenty of whites on welfare, too.

          None of this can compete with a million breeder culture migrants crossing per anum. Immigration is the issue.

          • Tate August 17, 2019 at 6:58 pm #

            Yes, but those “poor less-educated whites” are committing suicide at disproportinate rates as well, thanks to the Sackler (crime) family. I hate to say it, but maybe Rich Lowry (National Review) was right when he said in his infamous opinion piece that trailer-trash whites deserve to die off. May be it’s the only way to oppose Edward Dutton’s thesis in “At Our Wit’s End” that our 1st world populations are becoming stupider because of our ‘unearned privileges’ (my interpretation.) If this leads to greater fitness within the White race, so much the better.

    In Ireland’s leading Sunday newspaper (Sunday Independent) last week a female columnist wrote about the value of the MSM and the danger of fake news. She mentioned in passing that the Russians had interfered in the presidential election to the benefit of Trump. I thought it was absurd, seeing as the Mueller Report could find absolutely nothing. But then again, I read elsewhere about ‘bot farms’ or whatever in Russia churning out imisinformation to help Trump in the election. I am sure it is rubbish but does anyone have any knowledge of it?

    • GreenAlba August 17, 2019 at 4:15 pm #

      “I read elsewhere about ‘bot farms’ or whatever in Russia churning out misinformation to help Trump in the election.”

      Similar bot farms were discovered to have been churning out pro-Brexit propaganda, so it’s highly likely. Nobody here is making that much of a fuss about it though, as it’s par for the course. Caveat emptor and all that.

      • JohnAZ August 17, 2019 at 6:31 pm #

        The absurdity of this is mind boggling. It definitely makes good press but does not pass any credibility test.

        Say the Russians had a bot farm. Where are they going to aim their junk. Facebook? Twitter? Google? Instagram? Aren’t these the same outlets that are being investigated by the Feds for biased information? Wouldn’t they have sorted out any Russian trolls?

        So they must have trolled the MSM. Yeah right. I have not seen one pro Trump item on the MSM ever. Except Fox.

        So maybe Radio Free Russia? Uh huh.

        So they must have sent their propaganda about Trump through a guy in England named Steele. Oh wait, that was supposed to work the other way.

        So they must have just hacked into DNC data base and sent stuff to Trumps campaign. No wait, Mueller said twern’t so. And if you remember right, the stuff they came up with in the leak was propaganda by HRC against Bernie. Hmmm. The real leaker is reputed to be pushing up daisies.

        I do hope Barr exposes the real bad guys here and then does something about it.

        After the Epstein debacle, I have my doubts.

        Trump overcame every weapon the Deep State threw at him to become president elected by the US public. 24/7 bullshit from every source possible in DC and prevailed. By himself.

        That says either he is a genius or the Deep State is comprised of total idiots. Take your choice.

          In the case of the Brexit trolls, the article specifically says the information came from Twitter’s data. I deliberately chose a Telegraph article and not a Guardian one, to cater for sensibilities, since The Telegraph supported Brexit (50% more UK print newspapers supported Brexit than supported Remain).

          I don’t care one way or the other – no skin off my nose if you don’t believe it. I don’t ‘do’ social media, and if I did I wouldn’t get my voting information from it.

            Which part of that is a conspiracy theory? Russian bot farms were detected sending out pro-Brexit messages. That’s not a conspiracy, it’s just what happened. It was reported in one of the leading pro-Brexit newspapers, The Daily Telegraph.

            Perhaps you think reporting the pro- or anti-Brexit editorial positions of the various newspapers is a conspiracy theory? Well, it wouldn’t be difficult to find evidence there either, would it?

            Guardian supported Leave, Telegraph supported Remain. By readership, newspapers supported Leave by 3 to 2. No conspiracy. You’re comparing apples and oranges.

            I supported Remain. Now I support Leave with a Deal, to avoid the loss of jobs, the destruction of the agricultural sector, the further impoverishment of the most vulnerable, a US corporate takeover, and closer alignment with US foreign policy under John Bolton and his ilk. I am nothing if not pragmatic.

            Talking of pragmatism, did you know that food poisoning per head of population is 10 times greater in the US than in the UK? That has pragmatic consequences too.

            sustainweb.org/news/feb18_US_foodpoisoning/

            The US population is more used to accepting crap from its (non-)regulators. I don’t embrace a race to the bottom, which is what is coming and what it was all about, for our leading investor-Brexiters, like Rees-Mogg and Redwood.

Not to mention the clusterfuck it will lead to in Ireland,which has suffered enough at the hands of the British already.

            One person’s “conspiracy theory” is another person’s reasonable conclusion based on fact. Of course, you can mock that idea by pointing to the most outlandish conspiracy theories and claiming they typify the whole. (Let’s say: purple people eaters hiding under one’s bed)

            Many allegations once dismissed as “conspiracy theory” are now accepted as proven fact. A couple years ago the public and MSM rejected the crazy idea that many of society’s elite engage in pedophilia. Then we learned of Jimmy Savile, Harvey Weinstein, Pizzagate, Nxium, Epstein, and so many others less publicized.

            The MSM hates to report on these things. But if they ignore these crimes entirely, they expose themselves as complete propaganda tools, since the internet reporters keep digging. So the overpaid lying shits on TV spin things as best they can and tell everyone, “Move on, nothing to see here.” But more of us are wising up now.

            And the pedophilia is just one of scores of categories where power has been abused, crimes committed with impunity, and the people of the earth fucked over. The whole power edifice is rotted, evil, and worm eaten throughout.

            I do not believe in conspiracy theories, or at least I do not think I do since I do not really know what the term means. If it means conscious manipulation by those with power then I do not believe but if it means collective fantasy then I do believe. But I think it means the former.

            This story about Russian ‘bots’ (whatever they are) swinging the election sounds vague to me and smacks of desperation to pin something onto Trump’s side given the astonishing ‘Russiagate’ fiasco, with Mueller pretending to the House Committee that he had gone senile.The media are trying to dismiss Trump’s support base as conspiracy theorists who are not amenable to evidence or reason. Belief for ‘Pizzagate’ plays into their hands because it is obviously nonsense.

            Savile, Weinstein and Epstein all fit into the witch hunt pattern. I have looked into Savile in some detail and there is absolutely nothing to it except lies and gullibility. The thing about collective fantasies (and that would include global warming and all the others which I will not go into) is that they are believed in by nearly everyone, including the elites. Go looking for hard, reliable information and you will not find it. It is extraordinary.

            There are no sinister elites rotten to the core.

            ‘Russiagate’ is a fine example of these fantasies. The journalist in the Sunday Independent does not mention it of course. The collective fantasy is very much a media creation, after all.

            Here is an interesting article about the Epstein case, from Barth’s Notes.

            “From the Daily Beast, a few days ago:

            Lawyer Alan Dershowitz claims an email buried in a mountain of just-unsealed court documents proves that one of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers lied when she said she was farmed out for sex with him as a teenager.

            The email, dating from May 2011, was from a veteran Mail on Sunday journalist named Sharon Churcher, and it had been sent to Dershowitz’s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre a couple of months after Guiffre’s story of her time with Epstein had provided the basis for Churcher’s splash “Prince Andrew and the 17-year-old girl his sex offender friend flew to Britain to meet him“. Guiffre was attempting to put together a book, and she had emailed Churcher asking “if you have any information on you from when you and I were doing interviews about the J.E. story”, particularly as regards names of “pedo’s” (sic) “that J.E. sent me to”.

            Churcher’s reply:

            Don’t forget Alan Dershowitz… J.E.’s buddy and lawyer…good name for your pitch as he repped Claus von Bulow and a movie was made about that case… title was Reversal of Fortune. We all suspect Alan is a pedo and tho no proof of that, you probably met him when he was hanging out with JE.

            “You probably met him” indicates that this is a name that Churcher is speculatively proposing, rather than someone Guiffre had herself previously named to her. Even though this is Churcher providing informal advice rather than working on a new story, the implications of a journalist advising a source about whom they might derive benefit from accusing are troubling.

            The story continues:

            Churcher, who no longer works at the Mail on Sunday, declined to comment.

            Similarly, a new longer piece in the Washington Post on Dershowitz’s feud with Guiffre’s lawyer David Boies covers the same ground, and we’re told that

            Churcher did not respond to a request for an interview.

            However, although Church may be reticent about being part of the story, she’s still writing about the Epstein scandal – such as in the Sun, where she’s proudly bylined as “Sharon Churcher, Journalist who broke the story”.

            The released cache also shows that Guiffre, when interviewed in a 2016 deposition, disputed a number of statements attributed to her by Churcher in 2011. As noted by Courthouse News:

            The sweeping interview, only 20 pages of which appear in a newly unsealed exhibit, takes Giuffre through a list of statements attributed to her by Mail on Sunday reporter Sharon Churcher.

            Asked by an attorney to identify whether any of the Churcher statements were inaccurate, Giuffre put check marks next to about a dozen bombshells, clarifying details such as who saw President Bill Clinton get into a “huge black helicopter” with accused Epstein accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell.

            …“Donald Trump never flirted with me,” Giuffre said. “Then the next sentence is, ‘He’d laugh and tell Jeffrey, “you’ve got the life.”’ I never said that to her.”

            Law & Crime, meanwhile, picks out a few further details:

            In the deposition, Giuffre disagreed with reporter Churcher’s reference to herself as a “pedophile’s dream.”

            “I said something along the line like . . . ‘the pedos loved me because I would do everything that they wanted for them,’” Giuffre said in the deposition. “But do I think that — yeah, I — I know [Churcher] made that line up herself, the pedos — pedophile’s dream.”

            According to Connie Bruck in the New Yorker, Guiffre says that “Churcher showed her pictures of prominent men in Epstein’s circle”, and Giuffre “identified some of those she’d had sex with”. There is no indication that Churcher included any unrelated photos in order to test for false positives.

            Guiffre of course did later accuse Dershowitz, and she explains the Churcher email by suggesting that the journalist had simply forgotten this. According to Bruck:

            Giuffre told me, “I can’t say what she was thinking, but I think she threw Alan into it forgetting that I had already mentioned him, even informed her of the experiences I had with him.”

            barthsnotes.com/2019/08/13/a-note-on-alan-dershowitzs-accuser-and-a-mail-on-sunday-journalist/

            Doesn’t that line by the journalist say something? “We all suspect Alan is a pedo and tho no proof of that, you probably met him when he was hanging out with JE.”

            However it would be quite wrong to point the finger at what we call here the tabloid press (on the Continent they call it ‘the boulevard press), which would be the low-brow, popular press. The so-called serious papers (which HItchens calls ‘the unpopular press’) are just as bad, if not worse. I do not think any of them manage not to get swept along with the witch hunts. On the contrary they, and the broadcast media, are enthusiastic participants, and it does not matter much who is demonized.

            The other day in England liar and fantasist Carl Beech (known as ‘Nick’ among other pseudonyms) was gaoled for fifteen years for perverting the course of justice. He had made up wild allegations about a top-level paedophile ring including a former prime minister (Edward Heath), home secretary (Leon Brittan) and chief of the armed forces (Lord Bramall) as well as the heads of the secret services. These involved the ritual murder and mutilation of young boys. It was all obvious rubbish but (and this is the thing) the police described the absurd claims as ‘credible and true’. Bramall was frail and very old and his wife was seriously ill with cancer yet his home was searched under the public spotlight. Beech had, naturally, made his first accusation against Jimmy Savile in the hysteria following Jimmy’s death, when the police had announced that ”the victim will be believed’, an invitation to the liars, cranks and insane (and their lawyers). Very many people believe to this day that Edward Heath (to give just one example) was a paedophile. This is a disgusting and wicked thing. Here is a rare piece of proper journalism about the subject, from Private Eye: rabbitaway.blogspot.com/2019/08/a-private-eyefull_9.html

            I have had countless online exchanges on this subject. One of the last responses I received read, “Sean Coleman That is one of the most astonishing replies I have ever seen. You should be deeply ashamed.” And yet none of these people, for all their outrage (of course it is because of their outrage) have a clue what they are talking about. They know as close to nothing as makes no difference. And yet they KNOW these insane stories are true! Except for the most seriously deluded it is impossible to defend these views once you have looked at the evidence, even just a little bit. So they avoid looking at the arguments and the evidence. I think they enjoy the fantasies too much to give them up.

            To cling obstinately to such delusions is a grave sin.

    World War of the Roses by Bird Eye View. P 2.

    In a previous post, I tried to bring together well-known facts confirming my hypothesis about the centuries-old existence of anti-Christian sects in Europe, whose appearance on the surface of public life at the end of the Middle Ages and at the Beginning of the New Time is directly related to the articulation of the Black World Project as the main anti-Christian force in the modern world.

    But the history of these sects began long before the articulation of the Black World Project and goes back centuries, at the time of the birth of the Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

    These religions are united by a “theory”, or rather Abraham’s insight that man is an image and likeness of God and therefore stands above all other creatures, including angels and archangels, but because of this he has “free will” – the ability to act contrary to the will of God.

    Moreover, these very actions contrary to the will of God, including the very first of them – eating an apple from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil – are the primary source of evil.

    And all that objectively exists or rather having its own ontological being, was created by the Lord God.

    Which actually became the reason to unite Judaism, Christianity and Islam into a separate group and call it Abrahamic monotheism, but this happened already in the New Age and is connected with a change in the thinking of all mankind under the influence of the ideas of Isaac Newton, about which I wrote in a previous post of this cycle and which became the primary source of the so-called scientific and technological revolution.

    Abrahamic monotheism fundamentally distinguishes Judaism, Christianity and Islam, or, as the Gnostics often call them Semitic religions, from the so-called Aryan religions, for example Zoroastrianism, which consider Evil to be a creative force that has taken the same part in the creation of the world (Universe) as Good.

    Aryan religions obliged a person to fight on the side of Good against Evil, despite the fact that the destruction of Evil is inseparable from the destruction of the World, one of the creators of which Evil is.

    Moreover, Good has created the Spirit, and Evil the matter, and Aryans are those who are on the side of the Spirit against Matter. And despite this fundamental difference in the Ancient (Antique) World, religious Aryans were allies of religious Semites (Jews) in the struggle against the Satanists-Amalekites, and the Book of Esther is about this – the “union” of the Jews personified by Mordecai and the Zoroastrians personified by Ahasuerus against the Amalek (Satanists) personified by Haman.

    The situation changed after the advent of Christianity, since the very idea of the Incarnation contradicts the basic idea of the Aryan religions, being from their point of view a mixture of Good and Evil, Spirit and Matter, and this gave rise to countless heresies proclaiming moral relativism and the death of God (Good) ala Nietzsche and made Aryan religions the primary source of moral relativism.

    An even greater ideological confusion was caused by the fact that on the eve of the birth of Christ, the Jewish King Hyrcanus conquered Petra and forced the Amalekites to accept Judaism, which in itself is a rejection of Judaism, requiring three times to push away someone who wants to go through the Giyur (Conversion to Judaism) if he (she) is not Jewish by blood.

    Rome took advantage of this, and, having conquered Judea, made the Amalekites converted to Judaism the Jewish kings (Herods), and the Sadducees the most influential group in the Sanhedrin, where he, in the person of Pontius Pilate, sent Christ for trial.

    So Titus Vespasian destroyed the Temple, which the Amalekite Herod rebuilt so thoroughly that there is no reason to consider it Jewish, except that Christ went into it and expelled the merchants from it.

    Truly mysterious are the Ways of the Lord, but it was this confusion at the boundary of the Ancient World and the Middle Ages that has become clear now, as if spotlighting such carefully intricate intrigues of sects consisting of people who became to love evil like the Fourth Crusade and the War of the Roses.

    Even the above-described act of King Hyrcanus begins to look providential, since it was thanks to it that the possibility of salvation opened up even for Satanists, unless of course they sincerely repent of their Satanism, which they officially abandoned under King Hyrcanus.

    Another thing is that after Judaism ceased to be the ruling religion, the majority of the Amalekites ceased to practice Judaism and created the very sects that were declared Christian Gnostics in modern times.

    It should be noted that in ancient Rome, the basis of its power was Roman morality, described in particular by Seneca, which made the Romans hate the neighbors of Judaism in the Middle East – the Phoenician and Moabite religions that gave rise to Carthage.

    These religions can be considered devil-worshipers, since the primary source of the term “Devil” is undoubtedly Baal, the supreme deity in these religions, which should not be confused with the Satanism of the Amalekites, in particular Satan, described in the book of Job, a slanderer, a man-hater, and I would even say anti-Semite, but in no way is he an adversary of God, and Baal, according to the logic of Carthage, was an adversary of the invisible God who appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of a burning bush.

    It is extremely difficult to understand the cultural interactions between Satanists and Devil worshipers, but History itself has already done this, since in the Middle Ages this truly diabolical mixture came into interaction with Germanic religions, which are unreasonably considered pagan.

    As a result of this interaction, they united in the course of the anti-Christian and anti-Roman conspiracy, which was called “The Great Conspiracy” in English historiography and the completely inadequate name in Russian historiography – “The Battle of Hadrian’s Wall “.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Conspiracy

    Inadequate because this battle was fought across Europe, forcing Emperor Theodosius the Great to proclaim Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire.

    It was then that these sects moved to the underground, periodically leaving the underground at critical moments in history, and then their rituals such as pedophilia and cannibalism shocked mankind, especially when it became clear that they had performed them before, controlling peoples and countries from underground.

    The fact of the matter is that it is these rituals that the Satanists and Devil worshipers consider the source of power of the Deep State, that is, the state in the underground.

    And when (if) Trump, after the fire on Losharik, ordered the arrest of registered pedophile Epstein, he declared war on these sects, since if the fire on Losharik was a diversion of these sects, the purpose of which was the death of Vladimir Putin, then, as subsequent events showed, the arrest of Epstein was quite comparable in its influence on geopolitics with such an attempt, and the discovery on the computer of Huma Abedin of the Clinton video, forcing the director Comey to announce the resumption of the investigation of her crimes and leading to her losing the election in 2016.

    The fire on Losharik occurred on July 1, it was announced that this fire destroyed half the elite of the Russian submarine fleet on July 2, a state of emergency in the United States and Europe was declared on July 3, and Epstein was arrested on July 6 – I do not believe in such coincidences.

    And then Epstein’s death in the cell is either a demonstration of power by the Deep State and the declaration of the dictatorship of these sects ala Iron Heel, totally depriving Trump of power, or Trump’s declaration of not just war on these sects, but war on annihilation if Epstein’s “death” is in reality Epstein’s transfer to the witness protection program.

    To be continued…

    Good News!!!

    in northern New Jersey, 3 million sq ft American Dream megamall scheduled to open next month!

    “The megamall, built by Canadian developer Triple Five, will include a Nickelodeon, Universe theme park, Dream works, water park, profesional size skating rink, indoor ski slopes, and of course shopping. Participating retailers include Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, Tiffany and Company, H&M, Zara and Uniqlo”.

    It seems its a little late in the game for a new ‘Megamall’, does it not. One of the retailers listed, Barneys New York, filed for bankruptcy a few weeks ago. And as this mall is located in Newark, I don’t know that the skating rink or the ski slopes will get much of a workout, Newark residents not being known for their enthusiastic participation in winter sports. Indoor malls in these parts are struggling, known more for gang fights and loitering vagrants than anything else.

        CANADA—UNZ COMMENTS,
        Great column! I would also recommend Duchesne’s sobering Canada In Decay: Mass Immigration, Diversity, and the Ethnocide of Euro-Canadians.
        I have been to Toronto about 10 times in the past 30 years, and every time I go the city looks wearier for the multiculturalism–diversity which it has brought on itself. It was an amazing place to visit back in the early 90s.
        High-IQ immigrants from China, India, etc, will not really help to create any kind of cohesive society, and will take the jobs of dumber whites.

        As far as selecting “high grade” migrants (a policy which is apparently being eroded) we have simply invited a higher level of competition.
        That’s fine if you’re a soulless multinational, but doesn’t serve the needs of Canadians. It’s the introduction of new subspecies. (Hey Phil, the dandelions are doing great.) which disrupts the ecology. We are already becoming a lower-trust and less coherent country. As Prime Minister trudeau would have it, we are a “post-national state” and hence the state is built to serve the globe, not the people of Canada.

        You need to spend time in Vancouver (been there, done that) where in fact it is the Asians and the Dot Indians who are the most violent and murderous.
        Surrey (should be called curry) is a cesspool.
        Burnaby is a dump.
        Vancouver is a shithole and Richmond is China east. .. They hate us. They will never integrate. They only want dominion over us.

        Don’t fool yourself into thinking because you don’t see it or hear that it isnt so. Liberal policies dictate the agenda and MSM dictates the narrative.

        You’ve never actually been to the areas in Canada transformed by this mass immigration. “Selecting for high IQ migrants” isn’t so. Canada gets plenty of low IQ third worlders who’ve turned previously nice areas into dangerous, crime-ridden slums. Even the high IQ ones like Chinese have their own crime which includes smuggling in deadly drugs like fentanyl and variants.
        The crime rate increase and foreigners being the lion’s share is of course, just like everywhere else, what whites get blamed for. Whites also get blamed for the fact these people end up in prison more often, but the government has this one weird trick of never publishing crime statistics with a racial breakdown so the unfalsifiable claim of whites doing a racism being the culprit of this disparity is never really challenged, but since it’s part of top-down state propaganda the ignorant masses “know” that it must be true.

        2031 sounds about right, maybe plus 5 to 10 years. The government’s own projections about a decade ago was Whites as an absolute minority by 2036 (down from 99% in the 1960s census numbers),

        and immigration has ramped up since then. Most of the people they bring in are either foreigners who draw more than they put in, or are very corrupt and take advantage of all sorts of things in a fraudulent fashion which lead to the breakdown of a high trust society, for example new rich Chinese who then also use the welfare systems since they don’t declare their financial status.

        • Majella August 18, 2019 at 9:41 pm #

          The Canadian immigration system is a mystery to me too. For example, a New Zealander (fellow Commonwealth citizen) has significant hoops to jump through just to get a limited working visa, while an Australian (and there’s many a ratbag in THAT lot!) have visa-free unlimited working access. A passport is all that’s needed.

But that doesn’t make salvation any less important to reach or pursue. What’s happening in Europe is simply an omen of what is to come here if we continue on the same road we are on now.

    I guess when everything is said and done it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that our society has devolved to the point where truth doesn’t necessarily have to be anchored in what most people agree is reality. Every person is entitled to their truth or truths apparently and reality itself can be whatever you want it to be. Add to this the whole concept that our culture absolutely and always must be multicultural and multiethnic and is there any doubt you will end up with a multitude of competing and conflicting truths? I can’t imagine anything else but more of the same and then some since our future is destined to be even more multicultural and multiethnic. If we were more similar and shared a common culture and thus truth there would be more peace in society. There’s no way to avoid it or get around it.

        ==========

        I would have told her how thankful I am to possess white privilege…
        and tall privilege
        and healthy privilege
        and right-handed privilege
        and handsome privilege (according to my wife)
        and all those privileges and advantages that fell by chance in my lap without having been earned.

        Would she suggest I be ashamed?

    ” “Blacks have got real, material gripes.”

    Volodya,
    In 1960 I would heartily agree with that comment. 2019…not so much. In the approx. 60 years since 1960, trillions have been spent, much on their material welfare…to little benefit of them or any other citizen. ”

    I would agree , except that I would say the same , or much worse , about whites.

    I vividly recall telling middle class whites in 1985 , in the midst of a largely white working class being gutted , that the same would soon enough be visited on them. And I was blithely brushed off.

    How many trillions had been spent on their material welfare ?

    And , arguably , the sacrifices required to have saved their country in 1985 would have been trivial.

    Yet , it sure seems to this person , who has never liked your country , that the undoing of their country and their race bothered me a hell of a lot more than it did them.

    I don’t much care for American Black culture to be honest .

    But then ………how much of that culture is even African ? Maybe 10% , to be generous ?

    It seems to me that it is rather largely a knock – off of white culture .

    So if it is offensive , perhaps that is rather only because it is less subtle and euphemistic.

    As long as the sky was raining cheeseburgers and Harley Davidson’s , and the streets were paved with gold , white Americans were perfectly content to fuck their own country , and fuck their own race.

    That’s how i remember it anyway.

      Your mourning for times past is premature.

      Friday I leave work for my weekend and I pass the Last Chance Tavern. The last Chance is across an oncoming lane of traffic and the curb in front has a tightly packed row of Harleys a hundred feet long with about a dozen hefty big fellas in blue jeans and leather vests milling about the sidewalk. I am stopped at a red waiting for a light to turn. My Mercedes gleans clean and black in the evenings’ orange glow.

      Ahead of me is a bridge. It has the pastel glow of the setting sun. I look over to the Last Chance and I wonder to myself how far ahead of them I’d be if I rolled down my window, gave them my middle finger and screamed out. ‘This is for you motherfuckers’ and then jammed the gas pedal to the floor.

      Don’t remember America, live it. America is still here.
