We need a new Black Death

Philip Greenspun writes:
Let’s consider the political goals of righteous Americans today:
  • higher wages for the average person
  • an improved environment with less human impact on the land
  • less concentration of wealth in the hands of real property owners
  • more affordable housing for the working class
While listening to An Economic History of the World since 1400 by Professor Donald J. Harreld, I learned that all of the above goals were achieved in the 14th century via the Black Death, which reduced the European population by approximately one third.
  • wages for workers, including unskilled agricultural workers, increased as much as 40-50 percent
  • food prices fell
  • land and housing prices fell
  • the least productive farmland was allowed to return to natural forest (contrast to conditions before, from the course notes: “By about 1300, Europeans had just about all arable land under cultivation, including marginal and poorly producing lands, to sustain the growing population”)
Is it fair to think of immigration as the reverse of the Black Death? We’re dramatically growing our population via immigrants and children of immigrants (see “Modern Immigration Wave Brings 59 Million to U.S., Driving Population Growth and Change Through 2065” (Pew)).

What seems surprising, then, is that the people who say that they want to see all of the economic results of the Black Death simultaneously say that they want to adjust U.S. demographics in precisely the opposite direction of the Black Death. Slowing or stopping immigration will not do the trick. We need something with the economic effect of the medieval Black Death.

Humans and chimps are not really so similar

From an Interview with a Geneticist:
My motivation started when I arrived here and was given the task of researching the human-chimpanzee similarity issue because people ask about this in churches. They hear the claim that humans and chimps are 98 to 99% similar. People want to know if that’s true. ...

It’s very important to theoretical evolutionists. ... Their statistical models need that 98 to 99% similarity. ...

Based on my work, I’m seeing not more than an 85% DNA similarity of chimpanzee to human, and that’s a maximum. It’s probably less than that. ...

There’ve been some recent biomedical researchers showing that any two human genomes could be 4.5% different from each other. We used to think that human genomes were only 99.9% similar to each other. But if we take the structural differences into account, there’s a 4.5% difference between humans. How then can we be 99% similar to a chimp? It’s totally nonsense.
You often hear that the human genome has been completely sequenced, but it has really been only 95% sequenced.

I got this from a creationist site, so you might want to confirm it with evolutionists.

I have cited that 98%+ similarity on this blog myself. I did not realize that the figure might be bogus. I was duped. I am happy to correct myself.

Yang goes for Neo-Nazi vote

Now that the White Supremacists have abandoned President Trump, many are switching to a Chinese-American:
Andrew Yang: White people will be shooting up Asian churches within a generation ...

Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is finding a growing surge of online grassroots support for his longshot campaign in the form of memes.

The 44-year-old serial entrepreneur’s online supporters, known as the Yang Gang, have started meme pages on Reddit, Twitter, and 4chan, placing Yang’s image on popular meme templates. The profile of Yang memes exploded last month after his appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, which is a favorite show within the meme community.

Yang’s popularity is attributable in part to his universal basic income proposal, the centerpiece of his campaign, which entails giving every adult in the country $1,000 a month. The policy proposal is popular among a mostly white and male meme and gamer culture which shares Yang’s concern for jobs being lost to automation.
Yang is obviously trolling us by saying White people will be shooting up Asian churches. It is so obviously ridiculous that he must be appealing to the moral superiority of White people.

Here is another tell:
Outsider presidential hopeful Andrew Yang’s latest idea is both literally and figuratively his most unorthodox yet: He’s taking a strong public stance against circumcision.

The Democratic candidate revealed in a little-noticed tweet last week that he was against the ritualized practice of cutting a newborn’s foreskin.
Yang does not dare criticize the Jews, so he says this instead. Being against circumcision is just another way of saying that the Jews are a barbaric and emasculating tribe. David Duke now supports Yang.

Islam is not like any other faith

I quoted the NY Times attacking Australian Senator Fraser Anning, but it is only fair to quote what he said:
"I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman"

"However whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified what it highlights in the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing muslim presence."

"As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today's shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all cliched nonsense."

"The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim Fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place"

"Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators. World-wide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an industrial scale."

"The entire religion of Islam is simply the violent ideology of a sixth century despot masquerading as a religious leader, which justifies endless war against anyone who opposes it and calls for the murder of unbelievers and apostates."

"The truth is that Islam is not like any other faith. It is the religious equivalent of fascism. And just because the followers of this savage belief were not the killers in this instance does not make them blameless"

"As we read in Matthew 26:52, 'all they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword' and those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us, cannot be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind,.."
A copy is also here.

There is a war going on between Islam and Western Civilization, and for the most part, West Civ is not shooting back.

The killer's manifesto is not aimed at conservatives. He hates conservatives and has a low opinion of President Trump. His purpose is to trigger liberals in the news media, and they appear to be triggered exactly as he intended. They are following his wishes.

There are plenty of articles denouncing him, of course. The Wash. Post attacks him:
Sturtevant counted 18 references to the Middle Ages in the markings and writing on the arsenal that belonged to Brenton Harrison Tarrant, the 28-year-old Australian charged in Friday’s New Zealand rampage.

There is, of course, the sun wheel, or black sun, symbols seen in photos Tarrant allegedly posted to the Internet before the shooting. The symbol became associated with the Third Reich after Heinrich Himmler decorated a castle with it. ...

There were also numerous references on the suspected shooter’s weapons to medieval battles and figures, including four names of medieval Serbs who fought against the Muslim Ottomans, two Hungarian military leaders who fought the Ottomans, and numerous references to the Crusades, when Christian armies from Europe tried to seize the Holy Land from Muslims during the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. ...

One name in particular stood out to Sturtevant: Charles Martel. Martel was a real person in history, credited with defeating the last organized army headed by a Muslim ruler to attempt to invade what is now France at the Battle of Tours in 732.
I kept reading to see if Tarrant or anyone else were misrepresenting these symbols. Instead it says:
“White supremacists imagine the Middle Ages as a time when Europe was all white, separated from its neighbors and in constant conflict with those that it deemed to be outsiders,” Sturtevant said. “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

In medieval Sicily, Christians, Muslims and Jews were “living and working together side by side,” Sturtevant said. In 7th-century England, the well-respected archbishop of Canterbury was from Turkey, ... Pilgrimage books listed travelers as hailing from “India” — though this was probably just a fill-in for anywhere in the Middle East.
Turkey was part of the Roman Empire. Travelers came from distant lands. What is the point?

So maybe Europe was only 98% White. Maybe some Muslims lived on a island somewhere. I guess that would disprove someone saying that Europe was 100% White or 100% Christian, but who said that?

I would think that when the Wash. Post tries to discredit white supremacists, it could do a better job than this. White supremacists are likely to just see this as confirmation of their beliefs.

Jews want to eliminate Amalek's modern heirs

One of the chief Jewish columnists at the NY Times tweeted:
This shabbat is called the sabbath of remembrance, in which Jews are asked to remember – and to blot out – the nation of Amalek, infamous for murdering the weakest, most defenseless Israelites. Among Amalek's modern heirs: The terrorists who gunned down innocents in New Zealand.

  — Bari Weiss (@bariweiss) March 15, 2019
What? Jews apparently have a belief that they should exterminate their enemy tribes. I never heard of Amaleks, but Jews have a myth that they did some harm to Jews 1000s of years ago, and now Jews must kill them all.

If the Amaleks have any modern heirs, then they have to be killed also. Weiss says they do -- the New Zealand shooter.

Okay, fine, Jews have always sought revenge killings, but the shooter was White and the targets were Moslem. What did Jews have to do with it?

It appears to me that she is saying that the Jews at the NY Times want to exterminate the White race. And it is all for some perceived grievance from 1000s of years ago.

Bishop convicted, 23 years later

The NY Times reports:
George Pell, an Australian cardinal who was the Vatican’s chief financial officer and an adviser to Pope Francis, was sentenced to six years in prison on Wednesday, for molesting two boys after Sunday Mass in 1996.

The cardinal was convicted on five counts in December, making him the most senior Catholic official — and the first bishop — to be found guilty in a criminal court for sexually abusing minors, according to BishopAccountability.org, which tracks cases of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy.
There is a lot of talk about allegations like this, but convictions are extremely rare.

Here is a very high profile case. But the conviction is based on the testimony of one anonymous kid who suddenly remembers it and files a claim 23 years later. There is no physical or objective evidence.

I don't know if he did it or not. But I don't see how anyone else can know either.

NY Times uses shooting to demonize whites

The NY Times hired a Moslem to complain about the New Zealand shooting:
In his manifesto, the gunman, who referred to himself as a “regular white man,” wrote that he was carrying out the attack to “directly reduce immigration rates to European lands by intimidating and physically removing the invaders themselves.”

The manifesto reveals an obsession with white supremacy, discussing the Battle of Vienna in 1683, which is glorified by white nationalists and Mr. Breivik as the critical moment when Europe staved off the Ottoman Empire’s advance and protected itself from Islam.
Not just white nationalists. If the Moslems had succeeded in invading Europe, then modern civilization as we know it today would not exist.
In 2015, a movement called Reclaim Australia organized protests against the “enforcing of Shariah law in Australia” and “the teaching of Islam in government schools.” The Conversation reported that placards displayed by the group at a rally read “Islam is an enemy of the West.” A key policy goal of the far-right political party Australian Liberty Alliance is to “stop the Islamization of Australia.” Its website warns, “Islam is not merely a religion, it is a totalitarian ideology with global aspirations.”

While Australia’s prime minister, Scott Morrison, described the suspect as “an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist,” an Australian senator, Fraser Anning, responded to the Christchurch attack by blaming “the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”
If you are an Australian, you can be either for or against the Islamization of your nation. Being for it, means favoring the subjugation of your grandchildren. Being against it gets you labeled a far right extremist.

It is true that Islam is not merely a religion. Any follower of Islam will tell you that.
Among white nationalists’ major motivators is “the great replacement” conspiracy theory. They fear that Jews, blacks and Muslims will replace white people and eventually subordinate them. Jews are often viewed as the diabolical head of the cabal, the nerve center, who use their infinite wealth and power to reduce and weaken the white man.
Just read the NY Times, or any other Jewish news source. They advocate the replacement of white people every day.
Representative Steve King, an Iowa Republican, recently asked, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive? He once tweeted, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,”
Yes, the Jews and Moslems plainly do want to replace our civilization with somebody else's babies.
These entities have worked together to reinforce the message that Muslims Americans are inherently radical and represent a “demographic time bomb” that will overtake the white population.
I am not so worried about the Moslem-Americans who are radicals. I am worried about the ones who believe the same things that Moslems have believed for a millennium.

New Zealand shooter's manifesto

The biggest news story is the New Zealand mosque attack, and everyone wants to know the reasons. Here is a shooter's manifesto:
Why did you carry out the attack?

To most of all show the invaders that our lands will never be their lands, our homelands are our own and that, as long as a white man still lives, they will NEVER conquer our lands and they will never replace our people.

To take revenge on the invaders for the hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by foreign invaders in European lands throughout history.

To take revenge for the enslavement of millions of Europeans taken from their lands by the Islamic slavers.

To take revenge for the thousands of European lives lost to terror attacks throughout European lands.

To take revenge for Ebba Akerlund.

To directly reduce immigration rates to European lands by intimidating and physically removing the invaders themselves.

To agitate the political enemies of my people into action, to cause them to overextend their own hand and experience the eventual and inevitable backlash as a result.

To incite violence, retaliation and further divide between the European people and the invaders currently occupying European soil.

To avenge those European men and women lost in the constant and never ending wars of European history who died for their lands, died for their people only to have their lands given away to any foreign scum that bother to show up.

To agitate the political enemies of my people into action, to over extend their own hand and experience the eventual backlash.

To show the effect of direct action, lighting a path forward for those that wish to follow.A path for those that wish to free their ancestors lands from the invaders grasp and to be a beacon for those that wish to create a lasting culture, to tell them they are not alone.

To create an atmosphere of fear and change in which drastic,powerful and revolutionary action can occur.

To add momentum to the pendulum swings of history, further destabilizing and polarizing Western society in order to eventually destroy the current nihilistic, hedonistic, individualistic insanity that has taken control of Western thought.

To drive a wedge between the nations of NATO that are European and the Turks that also make a part of the NATO forces, thereby turning NATO once more into a united European army and pushing the Turkey once more back to the true position of a foreign, enemy force.

Finally, to create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide within the United states.This conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines.

This balkanization of the US will not only result in the racial separation of the people within the United States ensuring the future of the White race on the North American continent, but also ensuring the death of the “melting pot” pipe dream.

Furthermore this balkanization will also reduce the USA’s ability to project power globally, and thereby ensure that never again can such a situation as the US involvement in Kosovo ever occur again(where US/NATO forces fought beside muslims and slaughtered Christian Europeans attempting to remove these Islamic occupiers from Europe).
Ebba Akerlund was an 11-year-old Swede, murdered by Islamic terrorists.

I certainly do not agree with a terrorist attack like this, and it is hard to see how he is helping the cause that he claims to promote. I am just posting this because the news articles I saw did not explain the motives.

Update: It is also here.

Closet Neo-Nazi Public Intellectuals

Jerry Coyne wonders why Steve Pinker is hated so much, while he sees only admirable qualities.

I think I know. Suppose you are a neo-nazi. Neo-nazis exist only in the imagination of left-wingers, but pretend anyway. Who are you idols going be, with no public figures being neo-nazis?

You are going to admire the ones who emit neo-nazi dog whistles. The leaders are Steve Pinker, Presidential candidate Andrew Yang, and (pseudonymous) psychiatrist blogger Scott Alexander.

Yes, all three are leftists, but the original Nazis were left-wing socialists also.

I mentioned the possibility that Pinker could be a White supremacist. He denies it, of course, and so do Yang and Pinker. But they would have to, or their careers would be terminated.

Again, I don't believe these guys are neo-nazis. But they do demonstrate a willingness to deviate from leftist groupthink.

Apparently these guys already get a lot of heat from the Ctrl-Left for being neo-nazi sympathizers, or even just right-wing sympathizers, and I don't want to add to it. I commend them for being leftists who are willing to think for themselves.

Alexander, aka SlateStarCodex, writes:
This post is called “RIP Culture War Thread”, so you may have already guessed things went south. What happened? The short version is: a bunch of people harassed and threatened me for my role in hosting it, I had a nervous breakdown, and I asked the moderators to get rid of it.

I’ll get to the long version eventually, but first I want to stress that this isn’t just my story. It’s the story of everyone who’s tried to host a space for political discussion on the Internet. Take the New York Times, in particular their article Why No Comments? It’s A Matter Of Resources. Translated from corporate-speak, it basically says that unmoderated comment sections had too many “trolls”, so they decided to switch to moderated comment sections only, but they don’t have enough resources to moderate any controversial articles, so commenting on controversial articles is banned.

And it’s not just the New York Times. In the past five years, CNN, NPR, The Atlantic, Vice, Bloomberg, Motherboard, and almost every other major news source has closed their comments – usually accompanied by weird corporate-speak about how “because we really value conversations, we are closing our comment section forever effective immediately”.
He says this, even tho his commenters were overwhelmingly leftist, and comments were easy to moderate. The problem is that there will be some opinions that the Ctrl-Left cannot tolerate.

Amazon bans scholarly books

As noted here, Amazon used to sell all books in print, but now censors certain right-wing views. Now it has even banned a respected scholarly work.

Evolutionary psychology professor Kevin B. MacDonald writes:
Twenty-one years after a respected academic publisher, Praeger, published Culture of Critique and Separation and Its Discontents, they have been banned on Amazon. A People that Shall Dwell Alone is still available. This comes only around two weeks after they banned books books by Jared Taylor and Greg Johnson. This is an extension of the de-platforming from financial sites and PayPal, Patreon, Coinbase, and credit card companies that has hit pretty much all sites on the dissident right, including TOO and TOQ. Clearly the establishment is terrified that these ideas are gaining traction, and it illustrates once again, that the culturally dominant left cares nothing for free speech as a pillar of American civilization. I am now deeply worried that if the left obtains power in the next election, what has happened thus far will pale in comparison to what lies ahead. Private companies like Amazon cannot impose criminal penalties, but if the left manages to redefine the First Amendment, as they would certainly love to do, there will be a very real prospect of imprisonment and heavy fines — even for well-argued, well-supported statements and writings.  This has already happened in several parts of the EU, and the left has already developed sophisticated legal theories aimed at getting around the First Amendment.
These books are about a history of the Jews, and only Jews object to them.

Books get banned for telling uncomfortable truths.

The books have received some criticism, as you can see on Wikipedia. One criticism was that MacDonald said that Jews were authoritarian, while some researchers said that Jews score low on right-wing authoritarianism. The explanation is that Jews are left-wing authoritarians, not right-wing authoritarians.

And left-wing authoritarians are now blocking political opinions with Amazon, Paypal, Facebook, Twitter, and MasterCard.

These books are still available from other sources, and I think many of the chapters can be downloaded for free.

There is no other ethnic group with the power to censor criticism. Europe has laws against denying or diminishing the Jewish Holocaust. The USA has no such laws, because of the First Amendment, but soon it will be impractical for non-Jews to say anything about Jews.

Update: The NY Times story on Amazon censorship omits the above ban, but misdirects us to this:
Amazon has removed the online listings for two books that claim to contain cures for autism, a move that follows recent efforts by several social media sites to limit the availability of anti-vaccination and other pseudoscientific material.

The books, “Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism” and “Fight Autism and Win,” which had previously been listed for sale in Amazon’s marketplace, were not available on Wednesday. The company did not respond to questions about why the books were removed or whether similar books would be taken down in the future. ...

There is no cure for autism spectrum disorder, but there are medications that can help address associated symptoms like high energy levels and depression, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The DSM-5 lists 100s of disorders for which there is no known cure, and yet there is a giant industry of shrinks, books, medicines, and therapies for them. Why are the censors picking on autism?

I can see why the censors do not want non-Jews writing about the history of Jews. Jews want control of their own myths.

I can also see why leftist authoritarians do not unapproved books on vaccines. Mandatory vaccination is their ideal program for demonstrating the merits of their ideology, and they don't want anyone to have any individual rights in the matter.

But autism? I suspect that they have some evil ulterior motive, such as using autism to stigmatize normal male behavior. Research shows that autism can be described:
The theory of the "extreme male brain" was first mentioned more than 60 years ago, write Simon Baron-Cohen, PhD, and colleagues in Science. ...

The "extreme male brain" is an exaggeration of the typical male brain, which is stronger at analyzing systems than showing empathy, or so the theory goes.

The researchers write that "leaving political correctness aside, there is compelling evidence" of differences in the brains, mental function, and behavior of men and women.

They cite psychological studies -- some of which were done decades ago -- that girls tend to play with dolls, boys favor mechanical toys, girls score better on tests of social sensitivity and verbal fluency, and boys score better on engineering and physics problems and spatial navigation.
The research was done decades ago, because no one is allowed to say that girls tend to play with dolls anymore. Those books will soon be banned on Amazon.

Pope grovels to appease Jews

While Nancy Pelosi argues with some Somali Moslems about whether Jews have hypnotized the world, the Wash. Post reports:
Pope Francis denounced the “depraved hatred” behind a wave of anti-Semitic attacks in parts of the world and said interfaith dialogue can help counter it.

Francis met Friday with a delegation of the American Jewish Committee and praised their longstanding good relations.

He lamented that their meeting was taking place amid the spread of a “climate of wickedness and fury, in which an excessive and depraved hatred is taking root.”

And he warned that for Christians, any form of anti-Semitism is “a rejection of one’s own origins, a complete contradiction.”

The audience occurred days after Francis responded to longstanding requests from Jewish groups to open the Vatican archives of its World War II-era pope, Pius XII, who has faced accusations of having failed to speak out enough against the Holocaust.
I think that the Pope is signaling that he is being held hostage by heretics.

There is no "wave of anti-Semitic attacks". Most of what Jews complain about have turned out to be hoaxes, like the Jussie Smollett hoax.

Moslems hate the Jews, but that has been going on for a millennium. It is largely because of Jews that Moslems have been invited into Christian countries. If hatred is taking root, it is because Jews have invited Moslems to take root in Christian countries.

Saying that anti-Semitism is a rejection of one’s own origins is like saying anti-monarchy is a rejection of one’s own origins. The American constitutional govt grew out of a rejection of British monarchy, and Christianity grew out of a rejection of Judaism.

Why would one religion ever worry about offending another religion? Catholicism is supposed to the universal religion, and if you believe that, then Judaism certainly is not.

An anonymous Trump-supporting Jew writes:
That’s a big difference between Muslims and Jews. Jews take care of other Jews. Any Jew anywhere in the world is welcome to move to Israel. But Islamic nations want nothing to do with taking in Muslim refugees. And nearly all of those Muslim refugees exist because of Muslims fighting wars with other Muslims. Christian nations have to take in Muslims refuges because Muslim nations won’t step up to the plate for their own people.

And this is one of the major reasons why Jews have traditionally supported Israel.
I pointed out that the Democrat House resolution essentially says that it is anti-Semitic for non-Jews to express opinions like this. He deleted my comment, and posted:
If you hate Jews so much, go read another blog

Or is my Jew mind control making you read this?
This is bizarre, but reflects common Jewish opinions. Almost anything non-Jews say about Jews will be branded Jew-hatred by Jews. Even if you agree with Jewish conventional wisdom, you will be called anti-Semitic.

If you say that AIPAC is a lobbying group that advocates pro-Israel policies to the US govt, then Jews will call you a Jew-hating anti-Semite.

This is their way of asserting Jewish supremacy over other groups.

You would think that everyone would ignore this sort of nuttiness, but apparently Jews have forced this sort of thinking on both the US House of Representatives and the Pope in Rome! Now they all grovel to appease their Jewish masters.

For an example of Jewish supremacy, see this Iraeli newspaper article from last year:
A lawmaker from the ruling Likud party said Wednesday that the “Jewish race” is the smartest in the world and possessing of the “highest human capital,” which is why, he said, the Israeli public did not buy into the allegations of wrongdoing by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu….

His assertions led to a Twitter spat with Joint (Arab) List party MK Ahmad Tibi, who noted Nazi Germany’s treatment of Jews as a race during the Holocaust.

“I can tell you something very basic,” Zohar said during the Radio 103FM debate. “You can’t fool the Jews, no matter what is the media writes. The public in Israel is a public that belongs to the Jewish race, and the entire Jewish race is the highest human capital, the smartest, the most comprehending. The public knows what the prime minister is doing for the country and how excellent he is at his job.” …

“What can you do? We were blessed by God… and I will continue to say that at every opportunity,” he said. “I don’t have to be ashamed about the Jewish people being the Chosen People; the smartest, most special people in the world.”

Zohar cited the many innovations and discoveries made by Jews, and said that Israel had achieved more in its 70-year span than some peoples had in thousands of years.

“You can understand why we usually win a lot of Nobel Prizes,” he said.
And now they have achieved domination over the Pope and the US Congress.

David Brooks demands reparations

Several Democrat presidential candidates have endorsed the idea of white people paying reparations to non-whites, and now the Jews at the NY Times are joining in.

I am not sure what the Jewish angle is. Maybe the Nazi Jewish holocaust was all the fault of FDR and Churchill, so Jews will get paid reparations also.

I have been saying for years that the Democrat Party is mainly held together by hatred of Whites, Christians, and men. This is becoming more obvious every day. Just look at what they say about reparations. Look at the House anti-Semitism resolution.

The Republican party is now much more pro-Israel than the Democrat. And yet the Democrat party is entirely dependent on Jewish fund-raising. Will the Jews continue to finance and support the Democrats? Of course they will. Just ask yourself why.

Dual citizens do have divided loyalty

The House Resolution says:
Whereas accusing Jews of being more loyal to Israel or to the Jewish community than to the United States constitutes anti-Semitism because it suggests that Jewish citizens cannot be patriotic Americans and trusted neighbors, when Jews have loyally served our Nation every day since its founding, whether in public or community life or military service;
A 2018 post says that:
89 of our Senators and Congress hold dual citizenship citizenship with Israel
There are also politicians who claim to be dual citizens with other countries. I believe Senator Ted Cruz claimed to be a citizen of Canada, until he ran for President.

By contrast, Israel requires all its legislators to renounce any foreign citizenships.

The whole investigation of Donald Trump is based on the premise that he might have some loyalties to Russia as a result of some attempted business deals or political favors. None of that has been substantiated. But it is plainly obvious that Jews have loyalties to Israel.

I am not saying it is necessarily bad for Jews to be favorable to Israel. Trump is favorable to Israel, and he is not Jewish. Others are favorable towards other nations for other reasons.

I am just saying that if it is anti-Semitic to point this out, then every truth-telling person is an anti-Semite.

House to condemn Moslem remark about Jews

The NY Times reports:
A formal condemnation of anti-Semitism that is up for a vote in the House this week has touched off a furious debate between older House Democrats and their young liberal colleagues over whether Representative Ilhan Omar is being singled out for unfair treatment over her statements on Israel.

The resolution, likely to be voted on Thursday, grew out of Ms. Omar’s suggestion last week that pro-Israel activists were pushing “for allegiance to a foreign country” — a remark that infuriated leading Jewish members of the House, who say it played into the anti-Semitic trope of “dual loyalty.” ...

An early draft of the anti-Semitism resolution that was circulated on Capitol Hill Tuesday — before the language about Muslims was added — does not name Ms. Omar. But there is little question it is aimed at her.
Muslims are the only ones who hate the Jews for who they are. The Koran says that Allah cursed Jews by turning them into apes and pigs.

Yes, pro-Israel activists are pushing for allegiance to a foreign country. That is an obvious fact, regardless of what you think about Jews.

The draft resolution is amazing, as it even defends the notorious Jewish pervert and murderer Leo Frank. It recites other Jewish myths and hoaxes. Instead of blaming Muslims who hate Jews, it blames White Christians. It doesn't really deny that Jews are anti-American, but instead complains that perpetuating stereotypes could have dangerous consequences.

Yes, truth can have dangerous consequences also.

I am surprised that Jews believe that they are advancing their cause with this resolution. Presumably they want to show off how they can exercise political power to denounce White Christians.

In case you doubt the correctness of what Omar said about US support for Israel, consider:
Back in 2018, at the Israeli-American Council (IAC) national conference, Pelosi declared that even if the US Capitol “crumbled to the ground,” the one thing that would remain is US aid to and cooperation with Israel, declaring, “That’s fundamental to who we are.”
Update: The Federalist rants:
The first, harkening back to her claims that Israel is “hypnotizing the world,” is that Jews are using their money to buy off the American government’s support of Israel. ...

The second claim is that American Jews who support Israel are engaged in dual loyalty. That their real allegiance is not to the United States but to Israel and Judaism. This is also an ancient and disquieting claim, ...

After all, as Ocasio-Cortez recently said, Jews are basically just white people complicit in white supremacy, a bizarre claim ...
He doesn't really dispute these claims. He is just mad that someone is saying them.

I think he prefers that Jews are complicit in Jewish supremacy, as the Jewish supremacists disassociate themselves from whites.
But frankly, as bad as the anti-Semitism itself is, arguably worse is that they are telling Jews that it isn’t. They are arrogantly claiming to understand what anti-Semitism is better than Jews do themselves.

Who gets to decide what is anti-Semitic? ...

As someone of Jewish descent, I want to make one thing perfectly clear to both Omar and Ocasio-Cortez: You don’t get to decide what is and isn’t anti-Semitic. Claiming that Jews are buying influence and are not loyal Americans is anti-Semitic. It’s not a trope, it’s a slur.
Now we get to his real issue. As a Jew, his position is that Jews should get to dictate what non-Jews say.

It does not matter if it is factually correct that there is a Jewish lobby that supports Israel. Jews say that acknowledging the fact is anti-Semitic, so the Jewish supremacists like him and their allies like Nancy Pelosi are going to condemn any non-Jew is fails to obey Jewish orders on what to say.

Update: House Democrats have decided to scrap the resolution. Apparently anti-Semitism is okay with them after all, since they could not figure out a good way to blame it all on White Christian men.

Update: The House did pass a revised resolution. It dropped the language about Leo Frank, and added a bunch of clauses blaming White Christian men, even tho it was triggered by non-white Moslem women criticizing Jews. Jews will blame white Christian men no matter what.

It refers to the "myth of dual loyalty and foreign allegiance". That is not a myth, as can be seen by opposition to Trump's Wall. Almost all of the opposition to the Wall is by those with loyalties outside the USA.

Some say America is an idea

Examples:
Many political speeches, such as the 2011 State of the Union Address given by President Barack Obama, have claimed that the United States is “the first nation to be founded for the sake of an idea.” Obama defined this as “the idea that each of us deserves the chance to shape our own destiny.”

The origin of the phrase is unknown. The Civic Reader for New Americans (1908) had this: “We said the United States was founded on an idea. What is that idea? It is the idea of freedom.” Alistair Cooke in 1941 defined the idea as “republican democracy.” Margaret Thatcher is often credited for coining the phrase in 1991, when she said, “No other nation has been built upon an idea—the idea of liberty.” Several months later in 1991, President George H. W. Bush said, “America is the first nation in history founded on an idea, on that unshakeable certainty all men are created equal.”
And here:
It is a bipartisan commonplace to talk about America as a nation of ideas. House Speaker Paul Ryan declared in 2016 that the United States is “the only nation founded on an idea, not an identity.” President Barack Obama said pretty much the same thing when he won reelection in 2012. ...

But the image of the United States as a country of ideas suffered a severe setback in November, and it has been reeling ever since.
If America is an idea, what is that idea? There is no agreement.

What if it turns out that historical research shows that the idea is White Supremacy?

If it is an idea, does that mean that anyone who agrees with the idea is welcome to come here? If so, then presumably others are not welcome. How would anyone make the determination?

Tranny Culture, like it or not

The Federalistreports:
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada ordered that a 14-year-old girl receive testosterone injections without parental consent. The court also declared that if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence.

As previously reported, Maxine* was encouraged by her school counselor in BC’s Delta School District to identify as a boy while in seventh grade. When Maxine was 13 years old, Dr. Brenden Hursh and his colleagues at BC Children’s Hospital decided that Maxine should begin taking testosterone injections in order to develop a more masculine appearance.
This is really sick. There is no scientific consensus that any such hormone treatments have ever done any child any good. On the contrary, many believe that it makes suicide more likely.

Breitbart reports:
Actress Meghan Markle has reportedly told friends she and her husband Prince Harry have plans to raise their child with a “fluid approach to gender” that refrains from “imposing any stereotypes,” according to sources who spoke with Vanity Fair.

Meghan Markle, now formally referred to as the Duchess of Sussex, is expecting her first child in the coming weeks and has even planned a “gender-neutral” nursery for its enjoyment.
Prince Harry must have decided to destroy the monarchy.

Julian Baggini writes:
Admiring the great thinkers of the past has become morally hazardous. Praise Immanuel Kant, and you might be reminded that he believed that 'Humanity is at its greatest perfection in the race of the whites,' and 'the yellow Indians do have a meagre talent'. Laud Aristotle, and you'll have to explain how a genuine sage could have thought that 'the male is by nature superior and the female inferior, the male ruler and the female subject'. ...

Given Aristotle's openness to evidence and experience, there is no question that today he would need no persuading that women are men's equals. Hume likewise always deferred to experience, and so would not today be apt to suspect anything derogatory about dark-skinned peoples.
The truth is more nearly the opposite. There is far more reason to believe in the inferiority of females now, than in Aristotle's time. And there is now much more grounds to suspect anything derogatory about dark-skinned peoples.

Amazon no longer sells all books from A to Z

Amazon used to carry all the books in print, without censorship. Not anymore. Here is a disgruntled author, and other examples.

Some Libertarians will argue that this is not censorship, because I am free to start my own online bookstore and sell the banned books. Yes, I can still do that, but some web sites with unpopular content are now being banned by the financial system, including MasterCard, Visa, and Paypal.

Yes, I can start my own payment system, but that is a lot more difficult.

There are lots of books still on Amazon that are a lot more offensive and legally questionable, as the above articles note. So the banning is not based on offensiveness.

The books are being banned because certain authorities are desperately worried that certain fringe ideas might reach a broader audience.

They must surely wish that they could have shut off Donald Trump's access to the news media when they had the chance.

Statistician A. Gelman writes:
In his classic essay, “Politics and the English Language,” the political journalist George Orwell drew a connection between cloudy writing and cloudy content.

The basic idea was: if you don’t know what you’re saying, or if you’re trying to say something you don’t really want to say, then one strategy is to write unclearly. Conversely, consistently cloudy writing can be an indication that the writer ultimately doesn’t want to be understood.

In Orwell’s words:
[The English language] becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.
If no one is allowed to speak bluntly anymore, then I expect to see more cloudy writing.

There is a lot of cloudy writing attacking Donald Trump. In much of it, it is really hard to tell why the author hates him so much.

For example, Michael Cohen seems to hate Trump, but why? I listened to his testimony, and here is how the Wash. Post reported it:
Cohen has testified that while Trump never directed him to lie to Congress about a potential Trump Tower Moscow during the 2016, he made his desires known through hints.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) asked Cohen to elaborate more on these hints that Trump would give, seeking to shed light on how Trump gives orders without saying the words specifically.

Cohen said Trump likes to give orders by making a sweeping claim — then asking a question that’s not really a question, per se. Cohen likened it to a powerful individual pointing to his tie and claiming it’s “the nicest looking tie!” — then asking a subordinate if he or she agrees.

It would have made more sense for Cohen to say, "I have orders from the secret Jewish cabal to backstab Trump, so that is what I am doing."

Apparently someone promised Cohen that Trump will be impeached, and Cohen has a chance to be the John Dean of the Trump administration. Dean went to prison for his crimes, but in the end he profited enormously by becoming a hero to Nixon-haters for his backstabbing.

How Costco makes money

The London Daily Mail reports:
Americans use more toilet paper than anyone else in the world, with manufacturing practices by US companies that destroy the habitats of native people who live where it is sourced and contribute to global warming, a new research study has showed.

US consumers use roughly three rolls of toilet paper each week, accounting for one-fifth of the world’s tissue consumption, according to the report titled ‘The Issue With Tissue: How Americans are Flushing Forests Down the Toilet’ by environmental groups Stand.earth and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
How can anyone use that much toliet paper? The thought of this is making me an environmentalist.

The biggest selling item at Costco is their toliet paper. It is excellent toliet paper, but it is only sold in 36-roll bags.

I thought that this would be a three-year supply for the average person, so I could never figure out how Costco could stay in business with such an infrequently needed product.

Now it all makes sense. If you have a family of six with average American toliet paper consumption, that Costco jumbo bag of 36 rolls will only last you two weeks. You would have to go back to Costco every two weeks just to restock toliet paper. While you are there, you can also stock up on chicken, wine, potato chips, and motor oil.

The average person would probably be embarrassed to buy 36 rolls of toliet paper at the local grocery store. If I needed that much toliet paper every two weeks, I would join Costco just to avoid the embarrassment.

I have always had trouble understanding the Costco business model, as it is very different from every other store chain, and is very successful. It all makes sense now.

Update: This article claims that American toilet paper consumption is exaggerated.

Why lesbians are fat

It is amazing how scientists can uncover some obvious fact about human nature, and then spin it for some leftist agenda.

England news:
Lesbian and bisexual women are at greater risk of being overweight than heterosexual women, a study has found.

Gay men are also less likely to be overweight than their straight counterparts and are instead more at risk of being underweight, said researchers at UCL and the University of East Anglia.

Researchers say the findings support the view that sexual identity should be deemed a “social determinant of health”.

Lead researcher Dr Joanna Semlyen said there were a number of possible explanations for the study’s findings.

She said: “We know that sexual minority groups are more likely to be exposed to psychosocial stressors, which impacts on their mental health and their health behaviours such as smoking and alcohol use, and which may influence their health behaviours such as diet or physical activity.

“These stressors include homophobia and heterosexism, negative experiences that are experienced by the lesbian, bisexual and gay population as a result of their sexual orientation identity and are known to be linked to health.”

The academic, from the University of East Anglia’s Norwich Medical School, added: “We found that women who identify as lesbian or bisexual are at an increased risk of being overweight or obese, compared to heterosexual women”.
Really? Lesbians get fats because of psychosocial stressors like homophobia and heterosexism?

In the future, there will probably be laws forbidding men to discriminate against ugly women. Then women won't get fat, and have to become lesbians. Or maybe they will all get get fat, but fatphobia will be a crime, so women will not have psychosocial stressors.

There are turkeys on farms that get so fat that they cannot perform heterosexual acts. Perhaps they also have psychosocial stressors. Or maybe there are some physical limitations that might also apply to humans.

From the same paper:
The burden of round-the-clock responsibilities of being a mother and the emotional responsibilities of raising children is damaging women’s mental health, a new study has found.

The research, which was published in the journal Sex Roles, found that while more men do housework and childcare than used to in the past, women are continuing to manage the household – even when they are employed.

Researchers from Arizona State University and Oklahoma State University looked at how so-called “invisible labour” was linked to feelings of being overwhelmed and a sense of emptiness in women's day-to-day lives.

Almost nine in 10 women said they felt solely responsible for organising schedules of the family.
Is this paper trolling us? Apparently mothers are so mentally ill that they think that they are managing the household. The study did not look at who are really running the household. It just concludes that motherhood is a mental illness.

Make America White Again

A Wash. Post columnist writes:
I’d have preferred seeing the biggest award, best picture, go to Lee’s razor-sharp “BlacKkKlansman” (because of its excellence) or even the comic-book extravaganza “Black Panther” (because of its massive impact on the movie business) rather than the actual winner, “Green Book.” But think about it: Of the eight best-picture nominees, three black-themed films? Plus Alfonso CuarĂ³n’s lyrical “Roma,” about a dark-skinned indigenous maid working in Mexico City?

Hollywood finally managed to produce an awards show that might legitimately be called Oscars Not-So-White. ...

We have a president who wants to Make America White Again. This year’s Oscars held a mirror to a proudly diverse nation — and showed why Trump’s reactionary crusade is doomed to fail.
Really? Hollywood makes some silly movies about non-whites, and that shows President Trump will fail?

If Trump were really making America white again, then he would bring back the US Naturalization Act of 1790, which limited immigration to free White persons of good character. The "good character" was probably evidenced by membership in one of the major Christian denominations.

I don't think that Trump has done anything to make America more white.

We can expect Hollywood, Wash. Post, and other major media to promote making America non-white at every opportunity.

Psychology Today reports:
Many clinicians, political commentators and members of the public have speculated upon the mental health of President Donald Trump. Indeed, over 70,000 people self-identifying as "mental health professionals" have signed a petition declaring that "Trump is mentally ill and must be removed." In sociological terms, the ‘medical gaze’ has been hitherto focused on President Trump, and to a lesser extent his ardent supporters.

However, in recent months many have been questioning the direction of this ‘medical gaze.' In fact, more and more people are suggesting that this ‘medical gaze’ should be reversed and refocused on President Trump’s most embittered and partisan opponents. Some have even suggested that these opponents are experiencing a specific mental condition, which has been labelled ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome' (TDS).
Yes, TDS is as real as many of the DSM 5 mental illnesses.

Columbus discovered a crime scene

The Wash. Times reports:
Sen. Kamala D. Harris said Monday that she would support efforts on the federal level to change the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to “Indigenous Peoples Day.”

“Count me in,” Ms. Harris said at a town hall meeting in Portsmouth, where she was asked whether she would back legislation, like a proposal making its way through the New Hampshire state legislature, that calls for the change.

Ms. Harris, California Democrat, is considered one of the early front-runners in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

At a town hall-style meeting on Monday, Ms. Harris voiced her support for Medicare for All, efforts to combat climate change encapsulated in the “Green New Deal” and providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

When asked about an ongoing effort to rename Columbus Day in New Hampshire, Ms. Harris touted a bill that passed the Senate last week that she helped author that would make lynching a federal crime.

“People did not want to deal and accept and most importantly admit that we are the scene of a crime when it comes to what we did with slavery and Jim Crow and institutionalized racism in this country, and we have to be honest about that,” she said, sparking applause from the crowd. “If we are not honest, we are not going to deal with the vestiges of all of that harm, and we are not going to correct course, and we are not going to be true to our values and morals.”
She says "we" as if she were legitimately running for President.

Her father is a Jamaican, her mother a Hindu, she grew up in Canada, she got into politics by being Willie Brown's extramarital mistress, she has no kids, and she finally married a Jew in late life. She pushed a federal anti-lynching law thru the Senate in order to honor her friend Jussie Smollett. She brags about Jamaican dope smoking with stories that don't make any sense.

She got elected in California because the white-haters have taken over. Will the rest of the USA buy what she is selling? The Constitution requires the President to be a natural born citizen, and she should not qualify.

Corruption of Psychologists and Pediatricians

Christopher J. Ferguson writes in Quillette:
The bottom line is that professional guilds such as the APA [American Psychological Association] and AAP [American Academy of Pediatrics] have a demonstrable track record of unreliability when speaking on matters of science. This means that parents, the general public, and policy makers may base decisions on erroneous pseudo-scientific claims that can’t be backed by good data. Perhaps the most egregious issue is when such bodies simply pretend no controversy exists in fields that are, in fact, highly controversial. ...

Social science is being poorly represented by groups like the APA and AAP. I recommend that, for the time being, parents, policy makers, and the public should, at best, treat resolution statements with a grain of salt and perhaps ignore them altogether.
I have posted many criticisms of the recommendations of these organizations. These are politicized organizations who do not follow the science. The above article has examples to prove it.

NY Times wants Moslem invaders

Mustafa Akyol writes in the NY Times:
Since 9/11, a recurrent theme in the far-right circles of America has been “creeping Shariah.” It reflects the fear that Islamic law will silently spread through the land of freedom to ultimately overtake it — to put all women in burqas and all adulterers to death.
No, that is not the fear. The fear is that Islam will destroy the civilization, just as it has destroyed civilization in every country it has invaded for the last millennium.

Much of his article complains that American Moslems are split between those who want to kill infidels, and those who have abandoned the faith.
Charles Taylor, one of the most prominent thinkers on religion today, reminds us of a historical precedent in an essay from 2011: In the 19th century, American Catholics were seen by the Protestant majority as “inassimilable to democratic mores, in ways very analogous to the suspicions that nag people over Islam today.” But, Mr. Taylor added, “American Catholicism evolved and, in the process, changed world Catholicism in significant ways.”
No, that is ridiculous. Catholics were among the original American colonies, and were always assimilated.
A similar transformation took place within American Judaism, as Steven R. Weisman shows in his recent book, “The Chosen Wars: How Judaism Became an American Religion.” Rabbinical authority waned, women became empowered, practices were modernized and Reform Judaism flourished.
No, Judaism never became an American religion. It is hard to find Jews who even believe in Americanism.

He does make a point of saying that the Jews have forced the two Muslim congress-women to be pro-LGBTQ and to apologize for their anti-Semitism.
To say that change would never happen in Islam would be a view too unfair to this third big Abrahamic religion. It would also underestimate America’s great potential to attract, and also transform, people of all faiths and races under a simple but rare principle — equal justice under the law. Shouldn’t some of those who call themselves “American nationalists” know this better than they seem to know these days?
The experiment has already been done in about 100 countries, and there is no need to redo it here. Importing Moslems has never made a country a better place.

America is not just a place for anyone who believes "equal justice under the law." Jews and Moslems do not even believe in that anyway. If you want equal justice under the law, then it is much easier with a more homogeneous population.

Amy Harmon on blacks and math ability

Amy Harmon reports in the NY Times:
What I Learned While Reporting on the Dearth of Black Mathematicians

My recent reporting has highlighted why racial exclusion in “the queen of the sciences’’ may matter most of all.
She wrote a whole story on a black mathematician moving from one college to another for obscure reasons, and discovered that black mathematicians are uncommon. She cites this xkcd cartoon on the math being the purest field, by far.

She ignored some more interesting ethnic issues, such as why those same colleges are full of foreign professors with weak English skills.

If I am parsing her convoluted reasoning properly, she says:
Some people claim that there are not many black research mathematicians because African-Americans are not as intelligent as other races. ...

[They lack any] reason to think that a genetic trait would be impervious to social or educational intervention

[They lack any reason to think] that high I.Q. is key to math ability
Yes, all genetic traits are impervious to social or educational intervention. Those interventions do not change the genes.

And yes, there is reason to think that high IQ is key to math ability. You sometimes see someone with high IQ and poor math skills. You sometimes see someone with strong ability in music or some other field without a high IQ. But you never see anyone with high math ability without high IQ.

This article is so goofy that I wonder if the NY Times is trolling us.

The same paper has this AP story:
British author and broadcaster David Icke, who critics accuse of anti-Semitism and of being a conspiracy theorist, has had his Australian visa canceled ahead of a speaking tour.
More precisely:
Conspiracy theorist David Icke has blasted the immigration minister, David Coleman, for revoking his visa just hours before boarding a flight to Australia for his March speaking tour.

Icke, a former footballer and sports broadcaster best known for his theory that the world is run by a cabal of giant shape-shifting lizards, has claimed Jewish people bankrolled Hitler, caused the 2008 global financial crisis and staged the 9/11 terrorist attacks. ...

Icke denied being antisemitic and a Holocaust denier, and said he had never advocated for Holocaust denial to be taught in school. ...

Icke said the cancellation of his visa “sets a dangerous precedent for citizens who have differing views and are willing to openly express these”.

“This is the creation of a blatantly Orwellian totalitarian state and says the government believes they have the right to dictate what the nation can and cannot choose to hear.”
I don't think that Icke blames the Jews for bankrolling Hitler or those other things. I think his theory blames shape-shifting lizards who are masquerading as Jews and others. That would be anti-reptilian, not anti-Semitic. But I could be wrong, as Icke is probably trolling us also. I wonder if Jussie Smollett will be allowed into Australia.

If Icke is banned for being anti-Semitic, then why isn't the TV show The X-Files also banned? It also involves weirdo globalist alien conspiracy theories.

The Future will be Sub-Saharan African Babies

Here is the 2019 Gates Letter, where he gives what he calls his biggest surprise fact:
Except in Africa. The median age there is just 18. In North America, it is 35. And the number of young Africans is expected to rise in the decades to come.
His video says that half of the world's babies will be in sub-Saharan Africa in 2100.
This young people can be a huge asset. If they are healthy and educated, they drive economic growth.
No, Sub-Saharan African babies do not drive economic growth.

Bill Gates is spending billions of dollars to promote the lives of African babies. If the population trends are accurate, then Africa will be horribly overpopulated. We are headed for war, famine, or a massive African exodus where African babies are used to re-populate the world.

Historians record the XX century as one where Mao, Stalin, and Hitler caused millions of deaths. They may someday say the XXI century was notable for how Gates caused billions of deaths.

At least Gates concedes that wind and solar energy will be insufficient for future energy needs.

Jews admit anti-gay-black-Semitism is a hoax

The NY Times now admits:
The details of the Jan. 29 attack on the “Empire” star Jussie Smollett were horrifying. While returning to his Chicago home around 2 a.m., the actor said, he was beaten and doused with bleach. His assailants tied a noose around his neck and shouted racial and homophobic slurs. “This is MAGA country,” Mr. Smollett said the attackers yelled.

These details also strained credulity from the very start.
Only the Alt-Right was pointing out that the story strained credulity. The NY Times and everyone else accepted it without question.

Smollet is gay, half-black, and half-Jewish.

Now we know it was a hoax, and Smollett will probably go to prison for it.

The article admits that all the other high-profile hate crimes also turned out to be hoaxes, but declares:
The real tragedy in all of this is that hate crimes are, in fact, on the rise in the Trump era, particularly against Jews and Muslims.
What hate crimes? A separate NY Times story explains that, but you have to read down to the end to see who is doing it:
Rabbi Eli Cohen, the executive director of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, has begun visiting nearby public schools with Geoffrey Davis, an African-American community leader, to try to understand what may be driving the attacks, as many of the assailants arrested by the police have been young men of color.
So it is African-American New Yorkers who have been picking on the Orthodox Jews, not the White Trump supporters.

This is not anti-Semitism. It is just black crime.

You can count on Jewish newspapers for (1) promoting crazy anti-White-Christian theories and beliefs, (2) crying about fictitious anti-Semitism, and (3) blaming Whites for the bad behavior of non-Whites.

Women want to mate with Neanderthals

Neuroscientist R. Douglas Fields writes in SciAm:
We know that Homo sapiens (meaning the wise one) co-inhabited the earth with Neandertals. What’s more, DNA analysis proves that men and women of both species (or subspecies if you prefer), mated. ...

By and large, H. sapiens and H. neanderthalensis stuck to their own when it came to romance. This like-attracts-like is a strong behavioral drive in mating that continues today. Men and women tend to consort with and marry others who are of similar characteristics, what psychologists call assortative mating. We much prefer to become romantically involved with someone of the same race, and we also pick mates who are self-similar in education, height, body mass index, social positions, attitudes, religiosity and even genes. The biggest factor in mate choice is having a similar IQ and this is highly correlated with years of education.

But sometimes women marry up (the lady Neandertal bedding H. sapiens), and sometimes women marry down (the “wise one” female falling in love with the Neandertal). Psychologists have terms for this behavior of selecting mates outside one’s own group: “hypergamy” and “hypogamy,” for marrying up or down, respectively, but as with most technical jargon, the scholarly vocab contributes little. The question is, why do women do it?
Fields is a little mixed up. There is no reason to believe that the African H. sapiens had any higher IQ than European Neanderthals. Neanderthals has bigger brains, better tools, and better art.

Hypergamous women are not so picky about IQ. They will happily mate with whatever man happens to kill their current lovers.
Generally, when a woman chooses a mate outside her own IQ or educational group, she tends to marry up. This tendency cuts across culture, ethnic group and race. Even in developing countries, such as Nigeria, romantic partners tend to have the same level of education, but when there is a difference in schooling, females usually marry up. This is the long-standing pattern in the United States, but it is an inescapable consequence of the fact that females were excluded from higher education.
Females were never excluded from higher education. Even if they were, that would have no bearing on IQ, or mating strategies based on IQ.
Now that the gender gap in education favors females, women in the modern world are more frequently marrying down when it comes to scholastic smarts and income.  
This is not really any change in hypergamy. It still shows women to be mating with the best available man.

Women tend to be pro-immigration because they see the immigrants as invaders and they instinctively desire to be raped by invaders.

Women now get more degrees than men, but this change has no effect on IQ. For the most part, women are getting those degrees in soft subjects, and not pursuing high-income careers, so it is still possible for all the women to marry up.
Romantic partners tend to share the same psychiatric disorders, such as autism, schizophrenia and depression. The same goes for smoking, substance abuse and criminality. A 2017 study finds that people with criminal offences prior to marriage are significantly more likely to marry others with criminal records. After they became hitched, the spouses committed even more similar criminal offenses. To the extent that genetics contributes to such illnesses and criminal tendencies, this is something to ponder in terms of mating choices breeding future problems.
The dysgenic problem is not that mating partners are similar, but those with bad genes are mating at all. Anyone passing on schizophrenia genes will be causing schizophrenia in subsequent generations, no matter who the mate is.

The NY Times reports:
For decades, researchers and physicians tended to think about pregnancies as either planned or unplanned. But new data reveals that for a significant group of women, their feelings don’t neatly fit into one category or another. As many as one-fifth of women who become pregnant aren’t sure whether they want a baby. ...

It shows that some women want to avoid making a decision about becoming pregnant, or have strong but mixed feelings about it. A new analysis of the 2014 results from the Guttmacher Institute combined these results with data from abortion providers. It found that in 9 percent to 19 percent of pregnancies, the woman “wasn’t sure” what she wanted at the time. ...

The research confirms that many unplanned pregnancies can nevertheless become wanted as women’s feelings about pregnancy evolve.
Is anyone surprised by this? I am surprised that the percentages are so low.

Women are fickle and choosy. One day they want a kid, and the next day they don't. They don't really know what they want, or what will make them happy. If we had to wait for women to make definite decisions about kids, the human race would have died out long ago. Maybe that is what happened to the Neanderthals.

To see how crazy women can be, check out the latest NY Times MeToo article. The newspaper has become like a trashy tabloid.
For nearly two decades, Ryan Adams, one of the most prolific singer-songwriters of his generation, has been heralded as a mercurial creative genius and a respected industry tastemaker.

Equal parts punk-rock folk hero and romantic troubadour, Adams, 44, has 16 albums and seven Grammy nominations to his name. He has overseen music by Willie Nelson, written a Tim McGraw hit and recorded with John Mayer.

He has also taken a special interest in the trajectory of female artists, especially younger ones, championing them onstage, across social media and in the studio, where his stamp of approval can jump-start careers.
The paper found some women who complained that he did not help their careers as much as they wanted. An ex-wife complains that he said to her, "You’re not a real musician, because you don’t play an instrument." A teenaged musician girl managed to exchange some flirtatious text messages with him by claiming that she was over 18.

Adams has also written and recorded dozens of songs about his divorce, and other disappointments in his love life. Nobody cares about him, of course. But if a woman has some disappointment, then it is a national tragedy worthy of a NY Times investigation.

Jussie Smollett crime was a hoax

The leftist white-hating news media has been claiming for three years about how Trump supporters were supposedly doing bigoted attacks. So far, their best example was Jussie Smollett. He is a prominent gay black actor who claimed that two white Trump supporters attacked him in a Chicago hate crime.

I did not follow this story, except to note that Alt-Right sites were quietly predicting that this story would turn out to be a hoax.

Now it turns out that the story is a hoax, TMZ reports. Chicago police found the two attackers, and they were black Nigerian bodybuilder Obama-supporting friends of Smollett. Smollett paid them to do it.

So how did the Alt-Right sites deduce that this was a hoax? Smollett could be charged with a serious felony, so telling a fictitious story like that was a big risk. Why risk it, and what did he have to gain?

The leftist white-hating news media portray Whites as bigots who are eager to put black men in a noose. In reality, the most racist Whites are nearly all law-abiding citizens who just want to get away from blacks, not provoke them. Nearly all hate crimes are perpetrated against Whites, not by Whites.

It will be amusing to see how the press covers this story. Now that they have made a national story about how it was a hate crime, they will have to now admit that it was all an anti-White hoax.

Esquire has to kill story about white boy

CBS News reports:
Esquire magazine dropped the cover story for its March issue on Tuesday, and many people expressed their frustration with the 17-year-old boy profiled in the article. The author of the cover story, Jennifer Percy, says the presentation for her feature story was "misleading."

"The Life of an American Boy at 17" follows Ryan Morgan and, according to the cover, "what it's like to grow up white, middle class, and male in the era of social media, school shootings, toxic masculinity, #MeToo, and a divided country."

In an email to CBS News, Percy wrote the "article shows how much work we still have to do to educate boys about inherited white male privilege. It also shows that the teenage years are an ideal time to make change." ...

Several social media users were outraged that the magazine would release a story that highlights white males during Black History Month. ...

Some people thought releasing the now-controversial cover was a strategy to get people talking about Esquire's continuing series, which will later profile other, more diverse people. Some defended Esquires choice in subject, saying Morgan is, in fact, the typical American boy.
So the typical American boy cannot be portrayed as White anymore?

I am guess that only Whites and Jews read Esquire anyway. Why should it cave to demands of the White-haters? This shows how far White hatred has gone.

How the American west coast has declined

End Of The American Dream reports:
Almost everyone that goes out to visit one of our major cities on the west coast has a similar reaction. Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it, but most of those that are just in town for a visit are absolutely shocked by all of the trash, human defecation, crime and public drug use that they encounter. Once upon a time, our beautiful western cities were the envy of the rest of the world, but now they serve as shining examples of America’s accelerating decline. The worst parts of our major western cities literally look like post-apocalyptic wastelands, and the hordes of zombified homeless people that live in those areas are too drugged-out to care. The ironic thing is that these cities are not poor. In fact, San Francisco and Seattle are among the wealthiest cities in the entire nation. So if things are falling apart this dramatically now, how bad will things get when economic conditions really start to deteriorate?
But tax revenue from Google, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Neflix, etc. have supplied billions of dollars for the govt to what it wants, right? Nope, it can't really do anything:
According to this Wikipeda article, in just six years, between 1863 and 1869, a 1,912-mile railroad line was built to connect the east-coast rail network to California. And they had to deal with stuff that we don’t have to deal with today, like massive buffalo herds and hostile Indian tribes.

Not that I’m saying that California needs a high-speed rail line (they probably don’t), but if they wanted to build one, then it’s pretty pathetic that it took 11 years to study a 450-mile-long line, less than one-quarter of what was built in the 1860s, and then scrap the project.

We used to be a nation that got stuff done, but today we can’t do anything despite having huge technological advantages compared to the 1860s.
Human capability peaked before 1975 and has since declined.

Law professor Peter H. Schuck writes in the NY Times:
President Trump is verging on a declaration of national emergency — purely in order to fund his wall. And if he does, the courts may — or may not — reject his gambit.

But the fact that he may actually possess the legal authority to require agencies to waste billions of dollars simply to fulfill a foolish campaign promise he thinks won him the election is itself scandalous. ...

In Mr. Trump’s case, it has handed an unguided missile to an ignorant, impetuous man-child.
If so, Trump got a huge arsenal of unguided missiles two years ago. We are just over halfway thru his term. Where is the damage from this "man-child"? It appears that the Presidency has too little power if such a person cannot even do any damage when he tries.

Pretend that aliens are invading

I have taken the liberty of a few substitutions in the quote below.

NY Times opinion columnist Farhad Manjoo writes:
“The Uninhabitable Earth” by David Wallace-Wells is the most terrifying book I have ever read. Its subject is demographic change, and its method is scientific, but its mode is Old Testament. The book is a meticulously documented, white-knuckled tour through the cascading catastrophes that will soon engulf our browning planet: death by water, death by heat, death by hunger, death by thirst, death by disease, death by asphyxiation, death by political and civilizational collapse.

And should they escape death, your children and grandchildren might subsist instead through proto-apocalyptic ruin. ...

What so riled me up was not just the projected devastation but also the obvious incapacity of our political system to even begin to comprehend the suffering to come, let alone mitigate it. It struck me that what we need to fight demographic change is not just some new political plan but a whole new politics — the sort of thorough reimagining of stakes that humanity has only previously achieved during times of total war.

But demographic change is not war. There is no enemy, other than ourselves. And we are very bad, as individuals or collectively, at fighting ourselves over anything.

This thought chilled me.

Then, one late night after taking a dose of a kind of sleep medicine that is now widely available in California, I had an epiphany:

Pretend it’s aliens. ...

The whole thing is tragic and lazy, when what we need is heroism and bravery.

If the aliens attacked, we’d do better. I’m sure of it.

We would understand the stakes in the battle ahead. We would apprehend the necessity of sacrifice and perseverance. We would be able to perceive what is happening to our planet and our species as what it plainly is: a war for survival.
I only changed the words in italics.

We don't need to pretend. Aliens are invading. We are threatened with death by political and civilizational collapse. Are we able to perceive what is happening to our planet and our species?

The demographic change is likely to be far more significant than climate change. The climate change forecasts are only for sea levels to rise 2-3 feet this century.

Even if you think that catastrophic climate change is the biggest threat to our planet, the long-term threat is mostly from the developing world and from immigration.

Bezos and Woodward have gone nuts

Woodward to Bezos:
Jeff: Proud of you for stepping forward in such a difficult situation. Very gutsy and definitely right. This period reminds me of 1972-1974, perhaps Watergate Redux. So many assaults on constitutional government, common sense and privacy. Let's hope we all get it right — aggressive but careful and fair. Cheers and best, Bob Woodward
What is he talking about?

Bezos is embarrassed because the National Enquirer threaten to expose his crude extramarital messages, and wrote a rant blaming Trump.

Woodward is famous for conspiring with the assistant FBI Director to illegally leak info designed to frame President Nixon for impeachment. Does Woodward think that Bezos is doing something similar to President Trump?

Woodward is also famous for a lot of bogus stories that hide behind fictitious stories, such as the 8-year-old heroin addict.

This is weird. I can see why Bezos thinks he is being blackmailed, but if that is blackmail then so are most of the sexual harassment and MeToo complaints.

Moslem forced to apologize for the truth

The NY Times reports:
WASHINGTON — Representative Ilhan Omar, who has been battling charges of anti-Semitism for weeks, apologized on Monday for insinuating that American support for Israel is fueled by money from a pro-Israel lobbying group — a comment that drew swift and unqualified condemnation from fellow Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Telling the truth is anti-Semitic.

Of course pro-Israel lobbying fuels support for Israel. Isn't that obvious? Otherwise, all that lobbying would be a big waste of money.

Lots of Christians support Israel also.
“My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole,” Ms. Omar wrote, adding, “I unequivocally apologize.”
This just proves the power of the Jewish lobby.
When Representative Steve King, Republican of Iowa, made comments embracing white supremacy, ...
No, he embraced "western civilization", and complained about those who put it down and call it white supremacy.

One of the newspaper's leftist Jewish columnists elaborates:
Consciously or not, Omar invoked a poisonous anti-Semitic narrative about Jews using their money to manipulate global affairs. This came just weeks after she’d had to apologize for a 2012 tweet in which she said that Israel had “hypnotized” the world, phrasing that also recalled old canards about occult Jewish power. ...

After all, it’s hardly radical to point out that lobbyist money has pernicious political effects. ... And I certainly have no problem with denunciations of Aipac, which plays a malign role in pushing American policy ...
So she agrees that the Jewish lobby is buying a malign influence, but says that it is anti-Semitic to point it out.
Personally, I’m happy to accept her apology. Progressive American Muslims and Jews should be natural allies; our mutual future depends on deepening this country’s embattled commitment
...
So Jews hate anti-Semitic Moslems, and will denounce them and force them to apologize. But nevertheless, Jews and Moslems are natural allies because they both hate Christians. They will work together to bring down western civilization by portraying it as a Christian white supremacist plot.

This is a point that a lot of Christians do not understand. They think that because Christians openly support Israel and Jewish causes, and Moslems work to destroy Israel and the Jews, that Jews would see themselves as having much more in common with Christians than Moslems. Indeed, that is true about many Jews. But among many leftist Jews today, such as those at the NY Times and other news media, they would side with the Moslems just because they hate Christianity so much.

How Indian foreigners ran Silicon Valley's biggest fraud

Philip Greenspun explains how importing foreign engineers has corrupted Silicon Valley:
Bad Blood, the authoritative book on the rise and fall of Theranos, describes American- and British-born engineers and scientists being fired for saying “the goal is too ambitious” or quitting when realizing this. Who replaced them? According to the book, almost all immigrants from India, either folks who’d recently completed a degree in the U.S. or coming over on H-1B visas, all managed by Ramesh Balwani, Elizabeth Holmes’s boyfriend.

During the “grand fraud” stage of Theranos, therefore, it was a primarily immigrant show except for the young impresaria.
Greenspun also explains what a disaster California has become.

His description parallels images of the Old South, where rich aristocrats ran profitable plantations, but the economy depended on millions of black slaves, and poor whites who were not much better off.

Today's California economy is based on rich elites importing cheap labor.

Murderer gets imam to watch his execution

The NY Times Editorial Board writes:
When the Supreme Court turned a blind eye to President Trump’s hostility toward Muslims last summer, Justice Sonia Sotomayor warned, in dissent, that the majority was undermining the Constitution’s “foundational principles of religious tolerance.”

In so doing, she said, the court was sending a message to “members of minority religions in our country that they are outsiders, not full members of the political commu­nity.”

Late on Thursday, the Supreme Court again sent that message, this time to a Muslim death-row prisoner, Domineque Hakim Marcelle Ray, who was awaiting execution in Alabama for the 1995 rape and killing of a 15-year-old girl from Selma. ...

On a 5-to-4 vote, the high court on Thursday allowed the execution to proceed. The imam, Yusef Maisonet, watched Mr. Ray die from behind glass. ...

“Under that policy, a Christian prisoner may have a minister of his own faith accompany him into the execution chamber to say his last rites,” Justice Kagan wrote. “But if an inmate practices a different religion — whether Islam, Judaism, or any other — he may not die with a minister of his own faith by his side. That treatment goes against the Establishment Clause’s core principle of denominational neutrality.” ...

And thus, the Supreme Court compounded the moral failure of its travel ban ruling. In each case, Muslims were diminished. “He wanted equal treatment in his last moments,” said Spencer Hahn, one of Mr. Ray’s lawyers, after Mr. Ray’s execution at 10:12 p.m. on Thursday. “We are better than this.”
The Establishment Clause says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion,
That means Congress may not declare Presbyterianism the national religion, in preference to Catholicism. It does not say what side of the glass a Moslem imam should be when a murderer is executed.

The core principle is not "denominational neutrality". Even if it were, Islam is not a denomination. It is debatable whether it should be called a religion. It is more of an anti-religion.

Kagan is on the Court because she is a leftist Jewish single woman, sympathetic to lesbians. The NY Times likes her for her hostility to Christianity.

Their position is that the Jews on the Court have a moral obligation to force the USA to import millions of Moslems, and to let Moslems celebrate one of their condemned murderers. We have enough murderers already, without bringing in Moslem murderers, and we should not have to respect their murderous beliefs.
