Trump is Convicted

The Democrat attempt to destroy our political has reached a new height. The trial was a sham.

There was no evidence that Trump had anything to do with those records. The records were not falsified. His lawyer billed for legal services, and the payments were logged that way.

Michael Cohen lied for his own profit. He should not have even been allowed to testify, as it was based on him illegally recording and betraying attorney-client privilege.

There was no crime being covered up. Even the prosecutor and judge could not specify a particular crime.

Our legal system is broken. And our political system is broken, if the opposing political party can shut down the leading Presidential candidate on bogus charges.

No, I do not think we are headed for civil war. But I do t h ink that the Democrat Party is the biggest threat to our Republic in decades, and this lawfare must be shut down at all costs.

In 1920, the Democrats imprisoned Presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs for his political views. He still got close to a million votes. I thought that everyone understood that to be a mistake.

I see no solution, except to elect Trump, and hope he gets his revenge. They maybe people will learn.

Here is a law professor rant:

Thank goodness the New York prosecutors knew what they were doing, and secured a conviction against the monster child, now making him officially a convicted felon. ... The irony is that this case was not nearly as significant or as strong ...

It is incumbent on me to observe, however, that the latest report that the congenial empty suit Biden is once again risking nuclear war for Ukraine does give one pause. The only good thing about Trump is that he is not a war-monger unlike the rest of the Republican and Democratic establishment. He may be a crook, a malignant narcissist, an idiot, and an incompetent: but he doesn't want to get America involved in wars. It's not enough to justify his winning, of course, but if Biden and the feckless Democrats lead us into a nuclear conflagration over Ukraine, then I suppose this will all look rather different (should anyone be around to look). ...

The fact that Trump is still a serious candidate for the Presidency is testimony to what a sick country this is. That the alternative is a President risking nuclear war over Cold War fantasies just confirms how deep the sickness is.

This may be becoming a consensus among our intellectuals. Trump's personality is terrible, but his policies are vastly superior to Biden's. Biden is destroying the country while Trump is personally embarrassing himself.

By now I have read hundreds of essays criticizing Trump, and hardly any of them have any substantive content. They are all just name-calling.

Actor has Trump Derangement

De Niro appeared outside the courthouse where Trump is currently facing 34 counts of falsifying business records in an alleged hush money case.

During the press conference, the 80-year-old actor said that Trump was a “clown,” a “grubby real estate hustler” and a “tyrant.”

In response, Trump said that De Niro was suffering from “an incurable case of TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME.”

“Robert, whose movies, artistry, and brand have gone WAY DOWN IN VALUE since he entered the political arena at the request of Crooked Joe Biden, looked so pathetic and sad out there. Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio!!!” Trump’s post said. ...

“I don’t mean to scare you. No, wait, maybe I do mean to scare you,” De Niro said. “If Trump returns to the White House, you can kiss these freedoms goodbye that we all take for granted. And elections. Forget about it. That’s over. That’s done. If he gets in. I can tell you right now. He will never leave. He will never leave. You know that. He will never leave.”

So Trump is facing 5 years in prison because he paid a bill to a slimy lawyer, and DeNiro calls Trump the tyrant!

No, the tyrant is the one who prosecutes his political enemies.

The charge is that Trump falsified business records to conceal another crime, but the trial has ended without any evidence that Trump knew about the records, or that the records were false, or that there was another crime. The charge is also past the statute of limitations, and relies on attorney-client priviledged info.

The official Joe Biden account just tweeted:

Folks, if anyone is wondering whether your vote matters, remember this.

Because Black Americans voted, I am president, Kamala Harris is a historic vice president, and Donald Trump is a loser.

That's right. That's why we have foreign wars, senile President, token incompetent VP, inflation, sexual mutilation of children, millions invading our borders, etc. Remember it. Because Blacks voted.

Jewish Law on Attacking Enemies

Israel has no constitution, and just follows the Torah and Talmud. So read Deuteronomy 20:10-17
10 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the Lord your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.

16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. 17 Completely destroy[a] them — the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.

Gaza/Hamas knew all this when it attack on Oct. 7. They had to know Israel would destroy them. Even as they get destroyed, they continue to hold hostages and fire missiles.

Islam also teaches to dehumanize and subjugate its enemies.

Spinning Donuts on a Striped Road

A rainbow ground mural in St. Petersburg, Florida has been defaced for the second time in just a week. This time, someone was caught spinning donuts over it on security camera footage.

People became aware of the mural being defaced last Friday when they received a call about tire marks covering it. The mural was just repainted earlier this month ahead of Pride Month celebrations. ...

St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch said in a statement, “In light of the recent vandalism targeting our Progressive Pride flag mural, I want to emphasize that there is no place for hate in St. Petersburg.

There are a lot of rainbow/pride flags, but the mayor says this is a progressive pride flag. A lot of people do not know what this symbolizes:
While retaining the common six-stripe rainbow design as a base, the "Progress" variation adds a chevron along the hoist that features black, brown, light blue, pink, and white stripes to bring those communities (marginalized people of color, trans people, and those living with HIV/AIDS and those who have been lost) to the forefront; "the arrow points to the right to show forward movement, while being along the left edge shows that progress still needs to be made."
In other words, it symbolizes queer and colored people taking over the world from straight Whites.

Meanwhile, the Pope has had to apologize:

ROME — Pope Francis on Tuesday issued a rare apology after he was accused of using a highly pejorative slur to refer to gay men in a closed-door session with bishops last week.

More than 200 bishops were gathered in a Vatican City auditorium, and Francis was reiterating his opposition to gay men studying for the priesthood. In seminaries today, Francis reportedly said, there is already too much “frociaggine.”

It was possible, the official said, that Francis was not “aware” of the extent of the word’s negative connotation: “His ‘who am I to judge’ stance remains” the pope’s position, the official said.

A second Vatican official familiar with the pope’s private conversations, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive issue, said the pontiff has used the word “frociaggine” on previous occasions — not as a catchall for homosexual men, but for anyone, gay or straight, who forms closed, gossipy cliques.

Apparently we have gotten to the point where even the Pope cannot speak freely in a private conversation about student priests.

Black Queer Students Invisible to the Cisheteropatriarchy

2022 research paper:
Black queer undergraduates experience invisibility at the juncture of anti-Black racism and cisheteropatriarchy in their campus environments.
The article is paywalled, so I don't know more. I learned a new word: cisheteropatriarchy.

I would think that if Black queer undergraduates experience invisibility, then must be free to pursue their studies without interference. But I am guessing the paper says the colleges should recognize their queer sexual practices somehow.

Mrs. Bill Gates tries to be a Feminist

Yahoo reports:
Melinda French Gates is one of the most influential philanthropists in the world. As co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest private charitable foundation in the U.S., she spearheaded donations of totaling $77.6 billion in grants since its inception in 2000. However, Gates will be resigning from the foundation as of June 7th, 2024.

Now, she wants women to have the opportunities she and many others did not and end gender inequality in the United States. French Gates's work in diversifying opportunities continues at Pivotal Ventures LLC, which she founded in 2015. Under French Gates’ vision, Pivotal Ventures has pledged $1 billion to investment and incubation firms supporting initiatives that empower women and people of color in four key sectors: politics, technology, finance, and storytelling.

She is a joke. She got rich by marrying and divorcing a rich man. She has not been influential, and accomplished very little.

We shall see if her ideas have any merity. She says she is going to fund women, Blacks, and Latinos because they have lots of good business ideas that the mainstream venture capitalists ignore. If that is true, she could soon be the world's richest person. I doubt it.

Why Medical Schools Admit Incompetents

The Wash. Free Beacon reports:
'A Failed Medical School': How Racial Preferences, Supposedly Outlawed in California, Have Persisted at UCLA

Up to half of UCLA medical students now fail basic tests of medical competence. Whistleblowers say affirmative action, illegal in California since 1996, is to blame.

Long considered one of the best medical schools in the world, the University of California, Los Angeles's David Geffen School of Medicine receives as many as 14,000 applications a year. Of those, it accepted just 173 students in the 2023 admissions cycle, a record-low acceptance rate of 1.3 percent. The median matriculant took difficult science courses in college, earned a 3.8 GPA, and scored in the 88th percentile on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).

Without those stellar stats, some doctors at the school say, students can struggle to keep pace with the demanding curriculum.

So when it came time for the admissions committee to consider one such student in November 2021—a black applicant with grades and test scores far below the UCLA average—some members of the committee felt that this particular candidate, based on the available evidence, was not the best fit for the top-tier medical school, according to two people present for the committee's meeting.

Their reservations were not well-received.

When an admissions officer voiced concern about the candidate, the two people said, the dean of admissions, Jennifer Lucero, exploded in anger.

"Did you not know African-American women are dying at a higher rate than everybody else?" Lucero asked the admissions officer, these people said. The candidate's scores shouldn't matter, she continued, because "we need people like this in the medical school."

So train some incompetent Black physicians so more Black women can die?

It seems that there is a common myth that Black women die in childbirth because of some sort of discrimination. It is not true. Mexican women do not die in childbirth any more than White women, but probably suffer more discrimination than Black women. An administrator at a medical school should know better.

I deduce from this: Our medical schools are run by people who are too corrupt to obey the law; too stupid to understand medical evidence; and willing to kill Black women with incompetent Black physicians.

If you are a Black woman seeking an obstitrician, I suggest you find a White one, because the Black one is there to kill you.

PBS TV calls Trump Hitler again

I thought that the Leftist press had gotten tired of calling Trump Hitler, but it continues.

PBS TV news:

Trump has echoed Nazi 4:59 Germany. He has repeatedly talked about migrants -- quote -- "poisoning the blood 5:04 of the country" on the campaign trail, which historians point out that that is 5:09 a direct reference to Adolf Hitler and his use of the terms blood poisoning. 5:13 And then Trump took to TRUTH Social also this week, claiming that the Justice 5:18 Department authorized the use of deadly force against him during their search of Mar-a-Lago, 5:23 claiming that Biden's FBI wanted to assassinate him. 5:29 And so I spoke to a Yale historian, Timothy Snyder, who said, when you look at this in 5:33 the big scale of things, Geoff, that ultimately Trump's comments about Biden trying to -- his 5:40 FBI trying to assassinate him is essentially a classic tactic used by fascist movements, 5:45 that they want to get a monopoly on victimhood, so that way they can justify any actions they take,
So Pres. Biden and his Democrat prosecute Trump in about five courts on bogus charges, threaten to kill him in an FBI raid, and that makes Trump like Hitler, because playing the victim is a fascist tactic.

Got that? Democrats play the victim about 100x more than Republicans. Democrats are always claiming that their people suffer discrimination, phobias, lack of privilege, etc. Trump's speeches are filled with talk about making America great, while Biden's are filled with talk about how evil White supremacists are victimizing the less privileged.

So that's fascist? If anything, Biden is the Hitler. Prosecuting enemies is a fascist thing to do. Not getting prosecuted.

The rest of the PBS news segment complains about American flags that have supposedly been repurposed to stand for Christian nationalism, as if that were a bad thing. In particular, the Pine Tree Flag was used by George Washington and many others. One meaning was to endorse John Locke's 1690 book against the divine right of kings. Now, PBS says this flag somehow symbolizes Trump being like Hitler.

Shapiro states Three Problems of the Left

From a Ben Shapiro podcast:
one of the big problems for the left right now is that its philosophy is a complete mashup 8:42 of a bunch of different ideas that are mutually exclusive and we are seeing it all come to fruition before us in the 8:49 ugliest of possible ways modern leftism has basically become a mashup between 8:55 three principles and the worst aspects of these three principles so principle number one one that the left supposedly 9:01 Embraces is a sort of John Stewart Mill libertarianism this is particularly true on social issues in which I'm free to do 9:07 whatever I want except harm you right I can wave my fist around until it hits you in the face the non-harm principle 9:13 of John Stewart Mill which is really a libert taring in principle and if taken properly means things like property 9:20 rights Free Speech but that is not what the left totally means by it basically what they mean is that you shouldn't 9:25 have any pressure on you to perform anything in the way of Duty that effectively there should be no 9:32 boundaries on your personal Behavior so John Stewart Mill libertarianism in which consent is the central value and 9:38 there is no higher virtue at all okay that is principle number one principle number two is the belief that human 9:45 beings are their feelings and so if human beings are their feelings then it actually is an 9:51 act of harm for me to insult your feelings so it's a perversion of the John Stewart Mill principle it's a 9:58 perversion of that principle right so the John stormill principle again is you can wave your hand around until you hit me in the face you can say 10:04 whatever you want and whether my feelings are hurt or not is relevant but the second principle that the left now believes is that I am my feelings and so 10:11 if you hurt my feelings you have done to me a grave harm you're erasing my identity that is a concept that's drawn 10:18 from 19th century Romanticism which was sort of blowback to the enlightenment 10:23 rationality that was put forth by philosophers like John locke or David Hume Romanticism was the the philosophy 10:30 of rouso the philosophy of Shelly you are your feelings and because you are 10:35 your feelings therefore no one can offend you and then there's the third principle which is that all failures are 10:41 the result not of you individually but of systems surrounding you and again that is a concept that's drawn from 10:47 rouso and from Karl Marx it's those three principles modern leftism a mashup of the worst aspects of this a supposed 10:54 libertarianism in which there's no such thing as virtue there's just moral relativism and I can do or say whatever 10:59 I want so long as it doesn't hurt you which again on its own is at least arguable but that is matched up with a 11:04 second principle which is that it is a form of harm to insult you or make you feel bad and a third form a third 11:11 principle which is that if you fail in life it is not as a result of your activity or as a result of your choices 11:17 it is the systems surrounding you well when you add all of those together then 11:22 politics basically turns into just a power game because after all who defines whose feelings are Paramount right it 11:28 may be that me saying the thing hurts your feelings but me not saying the thing hurts my feelings so whose feelings are Paramount how are those 11:35 feelings protected what systems need to change to bring about this magical personal 11:40 Utopia what the deconstructionists realized is that basically all of this was specious and all of politics is just 11:47 a power game and that's in essence what the left ends up promoting is a power game where they get sit at the top of 11:52 the Heap and boss everybody else around and structure Society in ways that are anathema to a healthy functioning society

Inside the Trump Kangaroo Court

Law professor Alan Dershowitz writes in the NY Post:
I have observed and participated in trials throughout the world. I have seen justice and injustice in China, Russia, Ukraine, England, France, Italy, Israel, as well as in nearly 40 of our 50 states.

But in my 60 years as a lawyer and law professor, I have never seen a spectacle such as the one I observed sitting in the front row of the courthouse yesterday.

The judge in Donald Trump’s trial was an absolute tyrant, though he appeared to the jury to be a benevolent despot. He seemed automatically to be ruling against the defendant at every turn.

Many experienced lawyers raised their eyebrows when the judge excluded obviously relevant evidence when offered by the defense, while including irrelevant evidence offered by the prosecution. But when the defense’s only substantive witness, the experienced attorney Robert Costello, raised his eyebrows at one of New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan’s rulings, the court went berserk. Losing his cool and showing his thin skin, the judge cleared the courtroom of everyone including the media.

I think the jury will acquit Trump.

California’s Looming Crime Catastrophe

Heather Mac Donald writes:
Recent legislation makes it easier for felons to claim racial bias—potentially putting them back on the streets in large numbers.

California is about to demonstrate what a world constructed from the tenets of critical race studies looks like. The sentencing reversal in California v. Windom is the result of a recent law that will likely bring the state’s criminal-justice system to its knees. The Racial Justice Act, passed in 2020 without meaningful public review, turns long-standing academic tropes about implicit bias and white privilege into potent legal tools. And the floodgates are about to open. Starting this year, the RJA allows anyone serving time in a California prison or jail for a felony to challenge his conviction and sentencing retroactively on the ground of systemic racial bias.

The Racial Justice Act operationalizes the proposition that every aspect of the criminal-justice system is biased against blacks. But according to the act’s legislative authors, it’s too hard to prove such bias in the case of individual arrests and prosecutions. Therefore, the act does away with the concept of individual fault and individual proof. From now on, statistics about past convictions are sufficient to invalidate a present trial or sentence.

The RJA explicitly repudiates a key Supreme Court precedent that had governed bias challenges in criminal trials.

The George Floyd racial reckoning continues, and millions may be dead before it is all over.

NY Times Likes Planet of the Apes

Jamelle Bouie writes in the NY Times:
There is no franchise in Hollywood filmmaking that is as consistently good, and as consistently interesting, as “Planet of the Apes.”

I feel very strongly about this, and not because I am an admitted enthusiast of genre filmmaking. Like any long-running series, “Planet of the Apes” — which spans 10 films and more than 50 years — has its lows. But those are well outnumbered by the films that deliver real thrills, showcase strong (and occasionally exceptional) performances and, rare among Hollywood movies of its type, provoke thoughtful discussion of serious ideas.

If you somehow are not familiar with the premise of “Planet of the Apes,” it is surprisingly straightforward. In the far future, mankind has regressed into animalistic squalor — unable to speak or reason — and intelligent apes have stepped into the sunlight as Earth’s premier sentient species. The first five films, beginning with 1968’s “Planet of the Apes” and concluding with 1973’s “Battle for the Planet of the Apes,” tell the story of the fall and rise (and fall again, perhaps) of ape society.

The 1968 film, starring Charlton Heston, is a masterpiece. Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, who would go on to win an Academy Award for best director for “Patton,” with cinematography by Leon Shamroy (best known for his work on “Cleopatra” and “The King and I”), it begins as a sparse and desolate disaster film, with a trio of astronauts wandering a seemingly strange planet of blue skies and desert vistas. When the apes finally arrive — as predators hunting a roving band of humans — it is in a kinetic sequence of genuine intensity. From there the film becomes a drama of sorts, as Heston’s cynical and misanthropic protagonist, Taylor, tries to prove his intelligence to ape scientists and escape lobotomization and castration at the hands of ape leaders. The movie ends, of course, with Taylor and his human companion Nova stumbling on the ruins of the Statue of Liberty, at which point Taylor damns the people of his time for their folly. “You maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!”

The rest is behind a paywall, so I am not sure what point he is making.

If there is any discussion of serious ideas, it is mainly the foolishness of a civilized society allowing itself to be infiltrated by inferiors who hate the dominant group. It seems like a thinly disguised story of how White South Africans got taken over by Blacks.

I would have thougth that Blacks would be offended by these movies. Instead they seem to admire how "intelligent apes have stepped into the sunlight as Earth’s premier sentient species." Or that's what Bouie says, anyway.

Defending Russia for Traditionalists

I am trying to understand why any American would want to take sides in either the Ukraine or Gaza wars.

The Ukraine War is being fought to expand NATO to the Russian border. The Gaza War is being fought to exterminate the Palestinian Arabs. Why should Americans care?

Alexander Dugin writes:

The inauguration of President Putin marks a new stage in Russia’s history. Some lines from previous periods will surely continue. Some will reach a critical threshold. Some will be curtailed. But something new must also emerge.

I would like to draw attention to the ideological aspect, which could become a fundamental vector for Russia’s further development in the international context.

In our fierce confrontation with the West, teetering on the brink of nuclear conflict and a third world war, the problem of values is becoming increasingly apparent. The war in Ukraine is not merely a conflict of states with their quite rational national interests but a clash of civilisations, with all of them fiercely defending their value systems.

Today, it is already clear that Russia has decisively committed to defending traditional values and sees them as integral to the fundamental processes of strengthening its civilisational identity and geopolitical sovereignty. This is not just about the various interests of individual subjects within the same — Western — civilisation, as the escalating conflict between Russia and the collective West could have been interpreted until recently. It is now obvious that two value systems are clashing.

The modern collective West staunchly defends:

Absolute individualism;

LGBT and gender politics;


Cancel culture;


Unrestricted migration;

Destruction of all forms of identity;

Critical race theory (according to which previously oppressed peoples have every right to oppress their former oppressors in turn);

Relativist and nihilistic postmodern philosophy.

The West ruthlessly censors its own history, bans books and artworks, and the US Congress is preparing to remove entire passages from the Holy Scriptures, allegedly offensive to certain groups of people based on ethnicity and religion. Moreover, the development of digital technologies and neural networks has raised the issue of transferring global governance from humanity to artificial intelligence — and several Western authors already hail this as an incredible success and the long-awaited arrival of the singularity.

The USA is still a much better country than Russia. Ukraine appears to be a worse country than Russia. I just post this to explain why some people hope Russia wins.

This is a Queer Planet

The London Daily Mail reports:
NBC has unveiled an upcoming documentary that focuses on examples of same-sex relationships and sex transitioning in the animal kingdom.

Queer Planet will be released on June 6 as part of Peacock's Pride Month celebrations and is narrated by actor Andrew Rannells.

The project is billed as a 'first-of-its-kind nature documentary' and will explore 'hidden LGBTQ+ communities among animals that have unconventional sexualities and genders,' according to Indie Wire.

The documentary's synopsis reads: 'Take a worldwide journey exploring the rich diversity of animal sexuality — from flamboyant flamingos to pansexual primates, sex-changing clownfish, multi-gendered mushrooms and everything in between.

'This documentary looks at extraordinary creatures, witnesses amazing behaviors, and introduces the scientists who are questioning the traditional concept of what’s natural when it comes to sex and gender.'

The Queer Planet trailer promises insight into bisexual lions, gay penguins and transgender creatures.

'Everything you were taught as a kid is wrong,' Australian author Bradley Trevor Greive says in the trailer for the film, which is rated TV-14. 'This is a queer planet.'

'It's only in humans that we have such a stigma about it,' says biologist Antonia Forster.

Maybe there is an audience of those who want to take moral lessons from clownfish.

No, what you were taught as a kid is not wrong. These stories are mostly hoaxes.

I look forward to a sequel on theft, rape, and murder in the animal world.

Takedown of Judith Butler

Judith Butler is a California-Berkeley professor, and considered the intellection leader of the trans-feminist-queer movement.

Here is some recent criticism. In short, she is a nutcase.

She describes herself as a non-binary lesbian queer. She is Jewish and anti-Israel. Her works are incoherent.

For some more sensible views of feminism, see the recently updated podcast, The Fiamengo Files.

Demise of Online Dating

The online dating world appears to be broken. Bumble is an app marketed mainly to women.

NY Times:

A Bumble billboard with big office buildings looming behind it. The mostly yellow advertisement has a photo of a couple on one side of it along with the words: “A VOW OF CELIBACY IS NOT THE ANSWER.” ...

On Monday, Bumble said in a statement that it was in the process of removing the ads from its global campaign and would be making donations to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and other organizations, offering those groups the billboard spaces.

I don't get it. Are those the choices? Celibacy or domestic violence? Some people actually like sexual relations.

Another article says:

‘The Bachelor’ Promises True Love. So Why Does It Rarely Work Out?

Of the 40 seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” only eight couples have stayed together. We spoke to former contestants about the show’s flaws.

These articles are paywalled, so I don't know whether they uncover the problems.

OpenAI has created virtual friend technology, and it is rumored to be developing a porn product. Other AI companies will do it anyway. We could soon see the day when millions prefer virtual/AI mates to real people.

Cohen's Anti-Trump Testimony should be Disregarded

Michael Cohen is now the Biden star witness against Pres. Trump. Cohen testified that he lied many times, and even went to prison for it, and now makes all his money badmouthing Trump.

So what did he testify that was so damaging? Here it is:

“He wasn’t thinking about Melania. This was all about the campaign,” Cohen said of the exchange — at which point Trump, seated at the defense table, turned toward him and shook his head with a sly smile on his face.

Cohen claimed Trump wanted him to delay Daniels’ story from coming out until after the election.

“I want you to just push it out as long as you can, just get past the election,” Cohen claimed Trump said. “Because if I win, it will have no relevance because I’m president. And if I lose, I don’t even care.”

First, this should have been inadmissable hearsay. Trump was not under oath.

For example, if I tell my barbar that I want a haircut to look good in a job interview, then the barber retelling the story cannot be used in court, as I was not under oath. I may have just said that to indicate what kind of a haircut I wanted.

There is an exception for admissions against interests, such as when a murder admits to killing. But there is no admission here. Next, Cohen does not know what Trump was thinking. Cohen is not a mind-reader.

Next, the whole conversation should have been attorney-client privileged. Trump is entitled to get legal advice, without his questions being used against him.

There is an exception for plotting to commit a crime. But nobody claims that this conversation was criminal. The alleged crime had to do with the later bookkeeping.

Finally, none of this implies the money was an illegal campaign expense. Trump did not say to pay the hush money do that more citizens would vote for him. It appears that Trump wanted to kill the story before the election because the upcoming election was going to make it a big story. After the election, no one will care. So if he wanted to avoid personal embarrassment, he needed to kill it before the election.

The prosecution main argument against Trump is that he is a bad person because he was unfaithful to his wife, and said crude things on the Access Hollywood. So convict him of something else, that is not even a crime.

Teenaged Boy Dreamt to Swim with Women

CNN reports:
“I was afraid that if I was able to win, all of my success would be discredited because I was trans,” Cortez-Fields, a senior on the women’s swim team at New Jersey’s Ramapo College, told CNN.

As an NCAA competitor, Cortez-Fields underwent more than a year of hormone therapy, blood tests and testosterone tracking to meet the association’s transgender athlete guidelines and achieve [his] dream of swimming alongside other women.

Ahh, what teenaged boy has not dreamt about swimming alongside nearly naked women?

But he fears that winning will get him exposed as a boy. (He is not a teenager anymore, but the article implies that he is trying to realize a teenager dream.)

Maybe we should find some more socially acceptable way for these boys to live out their teenage sexual fantasies. They are surely despised by the other swimmers. He is not a real man, not a real woman, and not a sportsmanlike competitor.

German Courts Suppress Truth about Afghan Crimes

Elon Musk:
Are you saying the fine was for repeating accurate government statistics?

Was there anything inaccurate in what she said?

Judge Heiko Halbfas saw things differently on Monday: “Those who attack human dignity cannot invoke freedom of speech.” Kaiser deliberately created an image in the minds of others that led to hatred of a nationally determined group, the district newspaper reported.
The context is that Afghans in Germany are gang rapists.
The Verden regional court in Lower Saxony has upheld a verdict against Rotenburg AfD leader Marie-Thérèse Kaiser for incitement to hatred. The 27-year-old was also found guilty in the appeal hearing on Monday of inciting hatred against Afghan local workers.

For this, the politician now has to pay 100 day fines (a type of fine related to daily income of the convicted) plus a fine of €60, a total of €6,000. ...

Among other things, the politician linked to an article showing that Afghans in Germany are particularly heavily involved in gang rape.

Wow, the Germans have been neutered. When I see a story like this, I assume that the reality is much worse. Next time, the German govt will not release the ethnic data on rapists.

Whoever thought that Afghans could be imported into Germany, and become Germans?

Coulter would not Vote for an Indian

Leftists are cying racism about this interview:
"Its About Your Loyalty, Who Do You Support?" - Vivek Ramaswamy and Ann Coulter on Citizenship
Coulter is correct that immigrants and first-generation Americans do not get Americanism at all. The come from dictatorial countries, and do not understand American freedoms.

Some say that after a citizenship ship, they can make their loyalites to the USA. Others say that after a generation or so, they will assimilate, and be just like Americans.

Coulter points out that America was created by WASPs:

In the United States, White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASP) is a sociological term which is often used to describe white Protestant Americans of Northwestern European descent, who are generally part of the white dominant culture or upper-class and historically often the Mainline Protestant elite.[2][3] Historically or most consistently, WASPs are of British descent, though the definition of WASP varies in this respect.[4] WASPs have dominated American society, culture, and politics for most of the history of the United States. Critics have disparaged them as "The Establishment".[5][6] Although the social influence of wealthy WASPs has declined since the 1960s,[7][8][9] the group continues to play a central role in American finance, politics, and philanthropy.[10]
The Leftists are saying that she votes based on skin color, but that is not what she is saying.

The comments I say just used name-calling, and made no substantive arguments. It seems to me that there are two arguments they could be making.

(1) Immigrants will eventually assimilate, and become just like WASPs.

(2) WASPs just just accept that they are being replaced by foreigners with other values.

Perhaps (1) has happened with Irish and Genrmans, but has not happened with most other immigrant groups.

So that leaves us with (2). The Leftists are not really arguing against racism, but against Americanism.

Judaism Inseparable from Israel

USA Today:
Hundreds of Jewish Zionist students at Columbia University signed a letter calling for peace amid on-campus antisemitism they said arose in recent pro-Palestinian protests and asserting that "Judaism cannot be separated from Israel" – a message that some other Jewish Columbia students reject.

"We proudly believe in the Jewish People’s right to self-determination in our historic homeland as a fundamental tenet of our Jewish identity," the students wrote. "Contrary to what many have tried to sell you – no, Judaism cannot be separated from Israel."

The more than 500 students who signed, as of Thursday, all listed their full names, school affiliation, and year in school.

This might eeem like a minority view, but the US House just passed a bipartisan anti-semitism resolution consistent with this.

One of the founders of Israel:

There are no English, French, German or American Jews, but only Jews > > >living in England, France, Germany or America.

Chaim Weizmann

Here is another Jewish opinion:
NPR's Mary Louise Kelly talks with Anne Applebaum, staff writer at The Atlantic" about her latest cover story for the magazine, "The New Propaganda War."

Autocrats in China, Russia, and elsewhere are now making common cause with MAGA Republicans to discredit liberalism and freedom around the world.

She goes on to complain that some Africans blame the USA for the Ukraine War. And that we should regulate social media so that democracy does not lose the propaganda war.

This is just weirdo Jewish thinking. Democracy has become a code word for progressivism.

Update: Jewish Law professor Josh Blackman defends the letter, and writes:

But one rather common approach is to simply disregard certain religious doctrines that are inconsistent with modern-day values. For example, on Yom Kippur, the tradition is to read a well-known passage from the Book of Leviticus: "Do not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abhorrence." ...

It is entirely possible to treat the connection between Judaism and Israel in the same fashion as some treat Leviticus 18:22.

Wow, that is quite an analogy!

Wisconsin Judge is Against Marriage

From a 2020 story in a feminist Jewish site:
Earlier this month, Jill Karofsky was elected to Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. The Jewish, single mom of two defeated the Trump-endorsed incumbent in a surprise victory, winning 55 percent in the purple state. ...

Karofsky will be the third Jewish woman to serve on the Wisconsin Supreme Court: ...

“I am a 2-time Ironman triathlete and I run 50-mile ultra-marathons." ...

On her judicial philosophy, Karofsky said, “When I hear a judge say ‘apply the law as it is, not as I wish it to be,’ I generally know they are likely to be the worst kind of activist judge, intending to implement a far-right-wing agenda. I am committed to the rule of law, to an independent judiciary, and to applying the Constitution fairly and equitably to today’s world.”

Mazel tov, Jill. We’re cheering for you!

She has her own far-left-wing agenda.

Wisconsin law favors marriage for adoptive parents, and now she wrote an opinion wanting to abolish that law.

This incongruent outcome exemplifies the specious connection between the statutes and their stated goal of promoting a child's best interest. At first glance the connection may seem neatly knitted together; however, closer inspection reveals nothing more than a fraying tangle of dubious assumptions, circular reasoning, and outdated values that fail to reflect the practical realities of modern family life. ...

There are many different family structures that create stability for children, and the statute's one-size- fits-all approach can actively work against the benefit of a child, as it did in this case. ...

More than 20% of children have witnessed domestic violence within their lifetime, often resulting in long term harm to their development. ...

("[A] large body of research now exists that finds that children are not necessarily better off living with two biological parents who are in constant marital conflict.").

This is a good example of Leftist Jews trying to destroy to undermine Christian civilization. Why else would she write such a ridiculous opinion against adoptive parents being married?

She could give these same silly arguments against any govt policy. For example, the state requires a drivers license to drive a car on public roads. She could post a rant about how some licensed drivers have car wrecks, or how some unlicensed drivers are actually pretty safe. Such examples prove nothing about whether licensure is a good policy.

She cannot be that stupid. This is just Jewish thinking.

Neanderthals were the most Advanced Hominids

Discover magazine reports:
We know that the Neanderthals were talented makers. They used a sophisticated array of scrapers and blades, which they fashioned out of stone and other materials. And though Neanderthals were once por­trayed as basic and brutish, scientists are now stressing a new narrative: This species was in its way as innovative and creative as our own ancestors. Here’s a look at what Neanderthals could make. ...

With their tools, art, and con­trol of fire, it’s increasingly difficult to see the achieve­ments of the Neanderthals as all that different from the achievements of our own ancestors. Adding to that difficulty is recent research into Neanderthal speech.

This is so bizarre. Neanderthal were our ancestors, and the same human species as we are. Nearly all non-African humans today have some Neanderthal DNA.

Judge Orders Trump Gagged Again

Pres. Trump was censored again:
"But this judge, uh, said that I can't get away from the trial. You know he's rushing the trial like crazy. Nobody's ever seen a thing go like this," Trump said in the interview. "That jury was picked so fast — 95% Democrats. The area's mostly all Democrat. You think of it as a — just a purely Democrat area. It's a very unfair situation that I can tell you." ...

"Defendant violated the Order by making public statements about the jury and how it was selected," Merchan's ruling states. "In doing so, Defendant not only called into question the integrity, and therefore the legitimacy of these proceedings, but again raised the specter of fear for the safety of the jurors and of their loved ones."

Trump is right to question the legitimacy of the trial. It is a sham. No one has been prosecuted for anything like it before.

The prosecutor has to prove that Trump intended to violate, and argues that NY law does not actually require proving a violation if intent can be proved.

How could Trump have intended to violate the law, when no oen suggested that the alleged actions were criminal?

Trump is currently on trial in NY for lying in his business records. Cohen paid off a blackmailer and Trump later compensated him, booking it as a legal expense. The DA says that was a crime, because of an intent to cover up some other unspecified crime.

A Conservative knows what he does not know

Quillette used to have some interesting articles, but it has goesne downhill.

Currently it has a paywalled copy of this 2017 essay:

Postmodernism presents a threat not only to liberal democracy but to modernity itself.
But not the accompanying rebuttal by a postmodernist:
Anti-postmodern commentaries are certainly in vogue these days. ... Jordan Peterson has insisted that transgender activists who demand he use their preferred pronouns represent a “a post-modern, radical leftist ideology” that is “frighteningly similar to the Marxist doctrines that killed at least 100 million people in the 20th century.”
This latter esasay reveals post-modernism to be as nutty as thee critics claim. It goes on to say that science is not objective because: (1) some scientists collected data on racial differences; (2) some psychiatrists developed theories for treating patients who report sexual anxieties; and (3) some Canadian physicians opposed assisting suicides.

It goes on to try to persuade conservatives:

Postmodernism and conservatism share similar values, since both doctrines are founded on scepticism. Andrew Sullivan points out in The Conservative Soul that the defining characteristic of the conservative is that “he knows what he doesn’t know.” As the “guardians of doubt,” conservatives remain humble. Unlike the religious fundamentalist who believes that truth is settled, conservatives admit that knowledge is imperfect. Sullivan reminds us that the pursuit of absolute values cannot be fully reconciled with the government of mortals, who are limited by custom, feeling, habit, history and prejudice. Like postmodernists, conservatives accept that truth is not perfectly objective. Perspective always comes into play.
No. The real problem with post-modernists is that they do not make any sense. A conservative who knows what he doesn't know is not the same as a skeptic, and certainly not the same as rejecting objective truth.

This is a typical post-modernist argument. No facts, no logic, no sense.

The French think that Jean-François Lyotard, Michel Foucault, and Jacques Derrida were great geniuses. No. They were incoherent charlatans. They make no sense.

No Good Research Supports Gender Affirmation

CNN reports:
Gender-affirming care is medically necessary, evidence-based care that uses a multidisciplinary approach to help a person transition from their assigned gender – the one the person was designated at birth – to their affirmed gender – the gender by which one wants to be known.
Such opinions have made their way into court decisions, such as this 86- federal appeals court opinion on a N. Carolina case.

These terms do not mean what they appear to mean. You expect "medically necessary" to me that there is some medically demonstrable need for the treatment. That is not the case. All the term means is that insurance should pay.

And "evidence-based" suggests that there are scientific studies supporting the treatment. But there are no good studies. The evidence is anecdotal.

Reporter Jesse Singal reports:

The New England Journal of Medicine published a highly anticipated study called “Psychosocial Functioning in Transgender Youth after 2 Years of Hormones.” The research team has spent years following a cohort of kids who have been administered puberty blockers or hormones at four participating clinics. In this study, they reported on how the kids who went on hormones did over the two-year span following the start of that process. The participants filled out surveys every six months on issues pertaining to their mental health, gender dysphoria, and so on. According to the authors, the kids showed key improvements two years later. “Our results provide a strong scientific basis that gender-affirming care is crucial for the psychological well-being of our patients,”
This sounds scientific, until he reveals that the study only showed self-reported improvement in 2 of the 8 preregistered measures.

England has backed off these treatments, as dangerous for minors. See the Cass Review, which is generally pro-LGBTQ, but cauthions about low-quality studies.

I say it is pro-LGBTQ because it says on p.150:

11.5 Whilst the Review’s terms of reference do not include consideration of the proposed legislation to ban conversion practices, it believes that no LGBTQ+ group should be subjected to conversion practice.
It takes the position that therapies may be used to affirm LGBTQ+ status, but not to help a patient be straight or normal. Why would it say this? It was just supposed to review what services work and what don't. So it would be reasonable to review studies on whether the services work, but just to say it should not be done is an extreme pro-LGBTQ+ opinion, not backed by evidence.

It is true that the major medical and psychological organizations have endorsed gender-affirming treatments, and maybe you want to trust the experts, but these same organizations lied to us repeatedly during the covid pandemic.

Seeing Feminism as an Addiction

ot Devon Eriksen writes:
Feminism is not so much an ideology as is a strategy for constructing narratives in order to seek power.

Men and women both use language to seek power, but they have different ideas of what power is.

To a man, power is direct power: the ability to act and effect change in the world. It is skill, strength, knowledge, technology, wealth, resources, the ability to command others and be obeyed.

To a woman, power is indirect power: having the status, prestige and value which makes others act on one's behalf, sometimes by request, but ideally without. It is having one's needs, safety, and happiness seen to automatically by virtue of being a priority to others.

In the 1960s and 70s, feminism was mostly referred to as "women's liberation", or "women's empowerment", referring to the sort of power which a few feminist intellectuals coveted — the direct power to act on their own, without any interdependence with men, whom they despised.

But coveting direct power is a very masculine mindset, and as these intellectuals gained followers who were more feminine in outlook, their original goals were altered and then replaced. The terms "women's liberation", and "women's empowerment" fell out of favor, replaced by terms like "women's rights".

Because "liberation" and "empowerment" require individual initiative and action, while "rights" are automatic.

The modern feminist does not want to exert power directly, and bear the responsibility for that power. She wants indirect power.

Often the goal isn't even to achieve her stated ends, but simply to have power exerted on her behalf.

This is why the modern feminist becomes angry when you offer her a pistol with which to defend herself.

You perceive this as offering her direct power which she can wield to solve the problem she faces, or claims to face. But she perceives this as pushing the responsibility to solve that problem back on her.

This why feminists will advance frivolous arguments against carrying a gun:

"I am so klutzy and incompetent that it is literally easier for a man to take the pistol I am holding and shoot me with it than it is for me to shoot him when I am already holding it."

"What if I am attacked by Dracula riding Godzilla? A pistol won't help me then."

"Guns should be unnecessary because I deserve to live in a world that is 100% free of violence."

They don't want the gun.

They don't want that power.

They don't want to be powerful.

They want someone else to be powerful, and use that power to take care of them.

This is why they would rather the government spend outrageous sums of money on stupid stunts like this video, that clearly won't work, than slap down $500 of their own money for a Glock which clearly will.

But why?

Why would they prefer indirect power which won't keep them safe to direct power which will?

The answer is in the question.

They don't want to be safe. They don't even want to feel safe. It isn't about safety. They already feel safe.

It isn't even about power.

It's about what indirect power really does for them. It makes them feel cared about.

If you accept that as your premise, all the noise about "men don't respect women", "society doesn't care about women", "the government is failing to protect women" suddenly makes sense.

The point of ERA, the Violence Against Women Act, Title IX, the Duluth Model, etc, etc, isn't actually any end to which government power is being put. It's the fact that power, disruptive power, society-altering, system-smashing power, is being wielded on behalf of women at all.

They demand this because having the demand met makes them feel cared about. Valued. Loved. Special. Important.

This is critical to them, and it makes sense if you think about why. Women evolved under conditions in which they were physically helpless. They couldn't survive without men. Any women who preferred to pick up a spear and hunt buffalo for herself, rather than have men take care of her, didn't pass on those genes to the descendants she didn't have.

So, now, when you tell a woman to get a Glock and a decent IWB holster, many of them still react as if it were 10,000 BC and you had offered them a flint-tipped spear.

What the hell is this? That's not how it's supposed to go. You're supposed to defend them, right?

So if women are hardwired to want to be cared for, and feminism is an expression of that desire, why is it so clearly toxic and obnoxious to anyone who doesn't already subscribe to it? Why is it toxic and obnoxious at all?

Because it is a twisted expression of that natural desire, not a healthy one. It is an addiction, and it makes feminists behave like addicts.

Addiction is any expression of a desire whereby the process of fulfilling the desire intensifies rather than satiating it.

Feminists obtain indirect power by constructing a narrative that claims they are insufficiently protected, insufficiently cared about, insufficiently valued.

This obtains exertion of power on their behalf, which should make them feel cared about, but in the very process of demanding it, they are brainwashing themselves into the same belief they wish to project on others... that society thinks they are worthless trash, second-class citizens, not important, and so on.

This merely intensifies the psychological need they set out to fulfill.

In reality, middle and upper class western women are the most cared-about demographic in the history of the known universe. In no other species, and no other civilization, do males care anywhere near so much about the welfare of female strangers. In most species, they do not care at all.

So how do you deal with feminists who are addicted to indirect power?

Same way you to deal with any other junkie. Don't supply them with their drug of choice. Don't enable with them. Don't argue to them that they are addicts, rather than someone who has spontaneously developed a massive drug deficiency.

Simply present them with no attack surfaces for obtaining their drug of choice. Reserve your expressions of caring to women who seek it to inspire it by treating you how you wish to be treated, rather than berating it out of you.

On a political front, don't argue with them. You cannot talk them out of their demands, because their demands are driven by emotional needs that have nothing to do with the thing demanded. You aren't going to talk them out of it. Instead, focus on making them look ridiculous to the audience.

One fine way to do that is, in fact, to offer them direct power over their own lives.

And let everyone watch them angrily refuse it.

Election is about Freedom, America and Democracy

Fox News reports:
President Biden called the allied nation of Japan "xenophobic" in a speech this week, alongside a slew of other nations he claims are suffering from lack of immigration.

Biden made the remarks extolling the virtues and benefits of immigration on Wednesday at a fundraiser in Washington, D.C.

"This election is about freedom, America and democracy. That’s why I badly need you. You know, one of the reasons why our economy is growing is because of you and many others. Why? Because we welcome immigrants," he said.

"Why is China stalling so badly economically? Why is Japan having trouble? Why is Russia? Why is India? Because they’re xenophobic," the president continued.

So that is why Biden is flooding the USA with foreigners?

Let's look at the numbers. India had 360 million people in 1951, growing to 1 billion in 2000, and 1.4 billion today.

Biden seems to be arguing that India should have taken in more immigrants, and become even more populous.

Not sure if he is stupid, senile, or evil.

I agree that the election is about freedom, America and democracy. Biden is determined to repopulate America with foreigners. We did not vote for that. His justification is to call us zenophobic if we disagree. In the process he is also taking away our freedom, and trying to jail Trump for his opinions.

AP reports:

Nearly two months after the election, a recount settled the outcome in a Northern California U.S. House primary contest, ... Voting in the state’s primary election concluded on March 5. ...

At time when many Americans have doubts about election integrity, a two-month stretch to tally votes in one House race “absolutely is a problem from an optics point of view,” said Kim Alexander, president of the nonpartisan California Voter Foundation, which seeks to improve the voting process.

Any count that takes more than a few hours cannot be trusted. The Democrat Party stands for rigged elections.

Jews try to Censor Criticism

AP reports:
The House passed legislation Wednesday that would establish a broader definition of antisemitism for the Department of Education to enforce anti-discrimination laws, the latest response from lawmakers to a nationwide student protest movement over the Israel-Hamas war.

The proposal, which passed 320-91 with some bipartisan support, would codify the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a federal anti-discrimination law that bars discrimination based on shared ancestry, ethnic characteristics or national origin. It now goes to the Senate where its fate is uncertain.

Under the new law, it will be illegal to say the Jews killed Jesus, or to say Israel is like Nazi Germany, or to refer to Jewish control of finance and entertainment and government, or to say the Jews exaggerate the Jewish Holocaust, or to hold Israel to a double standard.

Yes, I hold Israel to a double standard. I expect them to be better than the surrounding Moslem Arab countries. I guess that puts me in violation of this proposed law.

Jews are always crying about imaginary anti-semitism. They want us to believe that they are a persecuted minority, deserving of special privileges. They and the Dmocrats have pushed for DEI favors as a way of punishing White Christians. Now they are discovering that they do not qualify for DEI privileges, and they created a monster. They have imported foreigners who hate the Jews, and it is the biggest story in years on college campuses.

I would be all in favor of making sure that Jews are protected from rioters at colleges. But no, they try to censor our opinions. Jews are the chief cause of censorship in the USA today.

Apparently very few criticisms of Jews are allowed. We can criticize the Gaza atrocities, as long as we do not call Israelis Nazis.

McKinsey Diversity Study was Bogus

The Telegraph reports:
Hiring more ethnically diverse management teams does not boost profits, new research has claimed, casting doubts on previous studies.

A study in Econ Journal Watch says that previous studies by the consultancy firm McKinsey claiming that racial diversity “is a business imperative that drives real business results” are based on data that cannot be replicated.

In other words, the study was a hoax.

If they believed in diversity, McKinsey would have assigned a diverse team to do the study. No, it was all incompetent Black women.

There is no business argument for dei diversity. It is all just hatred of straight White males.

Explaining the College Protests

I am trying to understand these college protests about Israel. It is baffling that students would get excited about obscure Middle East issues that haven't changed much in decades, that they would sympathize with sadistic murderers, and that colleges would be so helpless to deal with them.

Here are my hypotheses. If I missed any, add them in the comments.

(1) Women are instinctlive attracted to rebels, criminals, and foreign invaders. Most of the protesters are women. Men may be just tagging along to sleep with the women.

(2) Moslems trying to subjugate us. Islam teaches that Jews and Christians should be subjugated to Moslem rule, as has happened in 50+ Moslem countries. It is hard to push for that directly in the USA, so they do it indirectly with these protests.

(3) Jews have taken over the USA, and this is the only way to object. Jews dominate the Democrat Party, the Biden administration, Hollywood, academia, finance, news media, etc., just as predicted by the Protocols. They have also successfully censored any criticism of them. Protesting Gaza atrocities is the only criticism allowed.

(4) The protests are paid astroturfers, sponsored by foreign agitators trying to destroy America. A lot of previous civil unrest has been promoted by Communists, Jews, and other seeking to undermine Americanism.

I don't know, but I think the net effect of these protests is to further convince Americans that we are heading in the wrong direction. Some people will blame Biden, and vote against him. His core constituency is Jews, extreme Leftists, and White haters, and they are conflicted about these protests. There is no chance Biden can make them happy.

The NY Post reports:

Top Biden administration officials are mulling over plans to potentially welcome into the US a small number of Palestinians fleeing the region amid the bloody Israel-Hamas war, according to a report.
Oh wow. Help the Jews by importing Moslem terrorists that no one else wants.

Here is one of the protest leaders, before she deleted it:

Johannah King-Slutzky, Columbia U. biography:
My dissertation is on fantasies of limitless energy in the transatlantic Romantic imagination from 1760-1860. My goal is to write a prehistory of metabolic rift, Marx’s term for the disruption of energy circuits caused by industrialization under capitalism. I am particularly interested in theories of the imagination and poetry as interpreted through a Marxian lens in order to update and propose an alternative to historicist ideological critiques of the Romantic imagination. Prior to joining Columbia, I worked as a political strategist for leftist and progressive causes and remain active in the higher education labor movement.
The colleges have made a deal with the devil.
