Most divisive President ever?

So why are the Democrats impeaching Pres. Trump?

They rushed thru the House, but did not send it to the Senate (yet), so it appears that they have no interest in actually removing Trump from office. The article they passed does not accuse Trump of any actual crimes.

Possibly someone could think that it would be bad to incite a riot, but if that is a crime, then the biggest offenders are the Democrats. Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and many others actively encouraged race riots in 2020.

Biden promised to be a healer to unify the country, but by backing the impeachment, he has done the opposite. He hasn't even taken office yet, and he is already one of the most divisive Presidents ever. Trump never did anything this divisive.

74 million citizens voted for Pres. Trump. The impeachment is a way of telling those voters to goto Hell. The Democrats are saying: We won. We have the power now. We don't care what you say or do. We ignore your demands. We can destroy everything you stand for.

Okay, the Democrats have the power. Let's see what they do.

Pat Buchanan writes:

At the end of his remarks, Trump said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” ...

Trump not only defeated the establishment in 2016. He got 74 million votes for a second term. Then, he defiantly refused to recognize that his defeat was fairly accomplished. Trump is hated because he will not play the role the left has assigned to him in its historic morality play, in which the left is always the triumphant star. ...

What should Trump’s people do now?

If we are headed for an impeachment trial, force the Democrats to prove that Trump deliberately instigated an “insurrection.”

Then, lay out the history of the American establishment’s endless condoning and justifying of disorders, riots and rampages when done in the hallowed name of the social progress in which they believe.

Then vote down impeachment a second time and leave Pelosi 0-2 in her collisions with President and Citizen Trump.

I agree with that. Reciting a history of politicians and riots should result in an acquittal.

Biden won only 17% of counties

USA Today fact-checker reports:
On Dec. 8, the think tank updated its report with new data. The updated report showed that Biden won 509 counties, while Trump won 2,547 counties. Results from 28 counties have still not been finalized, per Brookings Institution.

But according to the updated data, Biden won 16.7% of counties with finalized results. That represents a record-low proportion for a winning presidential candidate.

Obama set the previous record in 2012 – with 689 counties, equal to 22%. Before that, he also set a record in 2008 with just 28% of counties, per NBC News.

It might have been a lot less, as many Biden voters regret their votes.

The National Mall is being locked down. Hardly anyone was expected to show up for the Biden inaugeration anyway. California is calling up the National Guard for its Capitol, as if anyone cares about that. The Left is seizing power like never before, and not taking any chances. They must realize that support for Biden is very thin.

The Wash. Times reports:
A leftist activist who is facing criminal charges in Utah stemming from a “defund the police” rally was arrested and charged for his role in the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, the Justice Department said Thursday night.

John Sullivan, of Utah, was charged with civil disorder, disorderly conduct, and entering a restricted building without authority.

He was goading Ashli Babbitt to jump through a window as he recorded her being shot. Not all of the trouble-makers were Trump supporters.

Josh Blackman and Seth Barrett Tillman write:

Regrettably, the House Democrats have forgotten an important lesson from the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson. In 1868, the Radical Republicans impeached the Tennessee Democrat for using "intemperate" and "inflammatory" language that was critical of Congress. Ultimately, Johnson was never convicted on this charge, in part, because pivotal Republican Senators insisted that the First Amendment protects the President's freedom of speech. History may repeat itself again soon. To secure a conviction, House managers, acting as prosecutors, must make their case to the Senate, and to the country, that convicting Trump is consistent with the First Amendment. The President's right to free speech should not be simply dismissed out of hand.

After Lincoln's assassination in 1865, Vice President Andrew Johnson became President. Over the next three years, Johnson frequently clashed with Congress. The Radical Republicans wanted to pursue a vigorous and forceful reconstruction of the southern states in the wake of the Civil War. Johnson opposed many of these efforts. This conflict peaked when Johnson fired Edwin Stanton, who was Lincoln's holdover Secretary of War.

In 1868, the House of Representatives approved eleven articles of impeachment against Johnson. Most of the articles concerned Stanton's termination. But Article 10 focused on Johnson's public criticism of Congress. It asserted that Johnson brought Congress "into disgrace, ridicule, hatred, contempt and reproach." In one speech in Washington, D.C., Johnson said Congress only "pretend[ed] to be for the Union," but was for "only part of the States," and sought to "exercise [the] power" of a "despotism." In a second speech in St. Louis, Johnson said that "Congress, factions and domineering, had undertaken to poison the minds of the American people." In a third speech in New Orleans, Johnson said he was betrayed by Radical Republicans who had "diabolical and nefarious" plans.

Ultimately, Johnson was acquitted in the Senate.

Johnson had a constitutional right to do everything that he did. The impeachment was just a power play by his political enemies. History is repeating itself.

Diverse panel named for witchhunt

The House has named 9 impeachment managers. The previous impeachment was led by Jews, notably Schiff and Nadler.

Now Schiff and Nadler are gone, and the list is more diverse. It is still led by Jews, but also includes a Black man and woman, a Chinese man, a Hispanic man, a man compromised by a Chinese spy, and a couple of more women.

Apparently Schiff and Nadler match the Jewish stereotypes too closely.

Last time nearly all the witnesses were Jews. It is not clear whether there will be witnesses this time. The Democrats have their minds made up.

I cannot say that it is Jew coup this time, as Pres. Trump will already be out of office when the trial takes place. Alan Dershowitz says that such a trial will be unconstitutional. A couple of times in the 1800s the Senate attempted to have an impeachment trial for someone who was out of office, but not successfully. Senators voted to acquit because they believed the process to be unconstitutional.

Another central flaw in the impeachment is that it is based on Trump's refusal to concede that he lost the election fairly. That is his right, of course, as prominent Democrats refused to concede that they lost the 2000, 2004, and 2016 elections fairly.

The Democrats will say that Trump is not being impeached for his opinion, but that is a critical part of the article of impeachment. It says:

President Trump, addressed a crowd at the Ellipse in Washington, DC. There, he reiterated false claims that ‘‘we won this election, and we won it by a landslide’’.
Without this, there would be no impeachment.

And of course there is no allegation that Trump violated any law, or did anything beyond exercising his First Amendment rights, or violated any norms that were established before his Presidency.

Covid deaths are up, but Sweden is doing well

I posted before that CDC were not showing many excess deaths since May. That was correct, but the updated CDC data now an extra 5000 or so deaths per week. This is attributable to the surge in COVID-19 cases.

On the other hand, Sweden refused to do the lockdowns that USA and most European countries did, and all the experts predicted devastating deaths from the disease. But Sweden will have a lower death rate in 2020 than it had in 2010.

Hillary cheers the coming suppression

Wash. Post op-ed:
Hillary Rodham Clinton is a former U.S. senator, secretary of state and Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol was the tragically predictable result of white-supremacist grievances fueled by President Trump. ...

Trump ran for president on a vision of America where whiteness is valued at the expense of everything else. In the White House, he gave white supremacists, members of the extreme right and conspiracy theorists their most powerful platforms yet, even claiming that there were “very fine people” among the torch-wielding militia members who converged on Charlottesville in 2017. ...

Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached. Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately.

She still claims that the 2016 election was stolen from her. But when Republicans claim that the 2020 election was stolen, she wants them all removed from office.

And of course she babbles a bunch of white-supremacist nonsense. The Democrat mantra is now to denounce Whites at every opportunity.

But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America. There are changes elected leaders should pursue immediately, including advocating new criminal laws at the state and federal levels that hold white supremacists accountable and tracking the activities of extremists such as those who breached the Capitol. Twitter and other companies made the right decision to stop Trump from using their platforms, but they will have to do more to stop the spread of violent speech and conspiracy theories.
So she favors the new power brokers spying on and censoring Whites and Trump supporters.
In Isabel Wilkerson’s new book “Caste,” she cites a question from historian Taylor Branch: “If people were given the choice between democracy and whiteness, how many would choose whiteness?” Wednesday reminded us of an ugly truth: There are some Americans, more than many want to admit, who would choose whiteness.
That is a good question. I am guessing that most of the world would choose whiteness over democracy.

Millions of people try to come to the USA every year. They are coming because they want to live in a White society, not a democratic society. I have never heard anyone say "I came to America because it is a democracy." The people of Hong Kong protest that they are no longer under White rule. Citizens of Detroit and a lot of other places preferred whiteness to democracy.

Joe Biden is already planning to punish Whites:

Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild.
Whites can goto the back of the bus. I didn't think that such racial discrimination was legal.

If you are following the ridiculous House impeachment saga, here is the Democrat report in support of the articles. It pretty much admits that Trump did not violate any laws, and was well within what everyone has always considered free speech. But the report says that is irrelevant, as they are out to punish Trump any way they can. All the Democrate talk about healing and peaceful transition of power was just a big smokescreen.

Learning to accept Black superiority

The top show on Netflix is Bridgerton, a parody of British high society in the 1800s. I thought that these historical period dramas were made to appeal to Whites who like movies about White culture. But no, this is modern Netflix, and it has planted an assortment of Blacks into the old English aristocracy.

The families are eager to marry off their daughters to the highest ranking nobleman they can find. Sometimes the man is Black! Sometimes a girl is repulsed by some old fat ugly White guy, but then sexually excited by the possibly of landing a Black man. The Blacks don't have to use separate drinking fountains or anything like that. They are so smoothly integrated into the 19th century English aristocracy that hardly anyone even alludes to the racial differences.

I am watching this to help prepare myself for the Biden administration

Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division once wrote this:

please use the following theories and observations to assist you in your search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and whites.

One: Dr. Richard King reveals that at the core of the human brain is the “locus coeruleus” which is a structure that is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation.

Two: Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites.

Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin–that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities.

Four: Some scientists have revealed that most whites are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcification or non-functioning. Pineal calcification rates with Africans are five to 15 percent, Asians 15 to 25 percent and Europeans 60 to 80 percent. This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between Blacks and whites.

Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities–something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.

I need to get this info out. When the censors come for me, I need examples of my recognition of evidence for Black superiority.

Update: Wikipedia has blocked this info, saying that it should not repeat anything from Fox News.

Previous Capitol attackers were pardoned

There have been previous attacks on the Capitol building. Real terrorists who planted real bombs to do real damage.

Trump-hater Daniel J. Flynn writes:

In 1978, Jimmy Carter commuted the sentence of Andres Figueroa Cordes, a Puerto Rican Communist who participated in a shoot-up of the well of the House of Representatives from the visitor’s gallery, on humanitarian grounds given the man’s terminal cancer diagnosis. The next year, Carter took the unpardonable step of pardoning Cordes’s three comrades in that 1954 action that wounded five congressmen.

On the last day of his presidency, Bill Clinton granted a full pardon to Susan Rosenberg, 16 years into a 58-year sentence for possession of guns and over 700 pounds of explosives. A member of the Weather Underground and numerous of its succeeding splinter groups, Rosenberg allegedly participated in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Capitol as a member of something calling itself the Armed Resistance Unit. The explosion blew off Senate Minority Leader Robert Byrd’s door, ripped through a painting of Daniel Webster, and damaged the Senate cloak room.

“We purposely aimed our attack at the institutions of imperialist rule rather than at individual members of the ruling class,” the Capitol bombers contended. “We did not choose to kill any of them this time. But their lives are not sacred.” ... After a pardoned Rosenberg landed a job teaching women’s studies at Hunter College and later when she raised money for Black Lives Matter, critics called her a “domestic terrorist” but fact checkers rebutted the label....

A year after Bill Ayers’s girlfriend and two of his friends blew themselves up in a Greenwich Village townhouse-turned-bomb-factory, the University of Michigan radical took part in the 1971 bombing of the U.S. Capitol. “We’d already bombed the Capitol,” he wrote in his memoir, “and we’d cased the White House. The Pentagon was leg two of the trifecta.” ...

Bill Ayers helped launch Barack Obama’s political career by hosting a 1995 fundraiser for Obama’s state senate candidacy in the home he shared with fellow former terrorist Bernardine Dohrn. Michelle Obama scheduled Ayers to speak at a conference she organized, and Obama occasionally found himself speaking at the same events as Ayers.

In other words, Democrat Presidents celebrated these terrorists as freedom fighters.

In 2019, protesters stormed the Hong Kong legislature, and they are also called heroes:

Foreign ministers from the United States, Canada, Britain and Australia condemned last week’s arrest of over 50 democracy activists in Hong Kong in a joint statement on Sunday, calling on China to respect the freedom of the people on the island.
So now there are calls to prosecute the mostly-peaceful demonstrators who walked into the Capitol building on Jan. 6 to protest a vote of Congress.

Did they harm anyone or anything?

Okay, some broke some windows.

There are two dead capitol police officers, but one committed suicide while off-duty, and the other died of a brain clot, after being hit with a fire extinguisher.

Seth Abramson makes an argument that Trump is somehow culpable for contributing to something illegal. I don't see it, but read it for yourself. Trump's speech and other statements are squarely within the courts have always said to be protected by the First Amendment. Trump and the protesters are patriots who were merely speaking out against an election being stolen.

What really makes the Capitol protest so evil was that it was mostly White:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing the Trump supporters who rioted in the Capitol this week of choosing “their whiteness over democracy.” ...

“It has been an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country led by this president, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy,” Pelosi said.

A NY Times columnist suggests that Blacks should all move back to whereever they came from. Apparently he is excited about Blacks taking over Georgia.

Also from the NY Times:

there m Representative Mary Miller, an Illinois Republican, had faced condemnation and calls to resign for declaring at a rally: “Hitler was right on one thing: He said, ‘Whoever has the youth, has the future.’”

“Each generation has the responsibility to teach and train the next generation,” Ms. Miller said at the rally. “You know, if we win a few elections, we’re still going to be losing, unless we win the hearts and minds of our children. This is the battle. Hitler was right on one thing: He said, ‘Whoever has the youth, has the future.’ Our children are being propagandized.”

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was among the groups that had roundly criticized Ms. Miller’s remarks. The museum said it “unequivocally condemns any leader trying to advance a position by claiming Adolf Hitler was ‘right.’” ...

Several Illinois Democrats went further and demanded that Ms. Miller resign. They included Senator Tammy Duckworth, Representative Jan Schakowsky and Representative Marie Newman.ay not be enough genetic diversity left to seed a new population of healthy northern whites.

The reader can reasonably infer that Hitler said and did a lot of good things, but no one is allowed to say so.

And this NY Times story is about northern whites going extinct:

there may not be enough genetic diversity left to seed a new population of healthy northern whites.
So are they suddenly concerned about whites? No, this is about northern African animals, and they are not even white in color.

The censoring accelerates

Everybody is banning Trump and all of his supporters, on the supposed rationale that they are supporting violence.

This BLM post from a few months ago is much closer to promoting violence:

Kaepernick is urging the oppressed to “fight back” via Twitter:

When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction.

The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.

We have the right to fight back!

Rest in Power George Floyd
— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) May 28, 2020

Posts like this did not get banned. The authors got supported with financial contributions.

It is especially alarming that the Democrats and other lizard people cannot wait ten days for Trump to leave the White House. They want action now. Just what are they scared of?

The Dunning–Kruger effect

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a favorite of pseudo-intellectual leftists. Wikipedia defines it as:
a cognitive bias in which people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from people's inability to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their level of competence. ...

Colloquially, people experiencing this bias are said to be "on Mount Stupid".

It is used to mock people all the time, without addressing the substance of what they say, such as:
Mr. X says Y, but he doesn't realize that he lacks the competence to say that. It is an example of the Dunning-Kuger effect. Ha, ha. He probably doesn't even know what the Dunning-Kruger effect is. Ha, ha, ha. People with his opinions never do. Ha, ha.
It turns out that it is the jerks who cite Dunning-Kruger who are the dummies, as the effect is bogus. This article explains that it is just a data artifact.

Suppose you measure something in two different ways, each with some error. Simple statistical considerations tell us that the extremes of one measurement are not likely to be so extreme in the other measurement. That was the main thing that Dunning and Kruger found.

In particular, they found that when someone does very well on a test, he often does better than he expected. And when he does poorly, it is often worse than he expected. Using some innumerate mumbo-jumbo, they expressed this as a profound result, as defined above.

Apparently mathematicians and statisticians have been aware for years that the effect is bogus, and yet it continues to be cited by academics, psychologists, social commentators, and even the NY Times anyway.

I know what you are thinking: Aren't the people who cite the Dunning-Kruger effect good examples of the effect? Ha, ha.

There are still examples of cognitive biases, and here is a long list. But citing Dunning-Kruger in lieu of a substantive argument is just a sign of ignorance.

Violence never wins, except when it does

Jared Taylor writes:
“Violence never wins,” said Mike Pence to much applause, when he reconvened the session. If he believes that, he has been asleep since May. Riots in the name of Black Lives Matter were so serious they led to curfews in 200 cities and prompted 31 states to call out the National Guard. And they were the most politically successful civil violence in American history.

Corporations have pledged billions for black uplift. Over 100 Confederate monuments, 36 statues of Columbus, and scores of other monuments — to Kit Carson, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, George Washington — have come down to appease “persons of color.” “Anti-racism” gurus are making millions, and you can be fired for saying “all lives matter.” Every company now must have a Chief Diversity Officer, and every school from kindergarten on up seems to want an “anti-racism curriculum.” None of this would have happened without riots. ...

In 2016, Vox published an article with the following headline and subhead: “Riots are destructive, dangerous, and scary — but can lead to serious social reforms. To prevent more violent uprisings and protests, we need to take their causes seriously.” Yesterday, Vox wrote that “officials should make all efforts possible to arrest and prosecute every single person involved” in the Capitol takeover. Their cause doesn’t matter. This is the environment in which we work.

I am listening to Trump's speech, and looking for the part where he supposedly incited an insurrection. The closest I can find is where he says that the election was stolen, and "So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue."

Taylor does not agree with the riots, and neither do I. But at least the Trump supporters did not hurt anyone or do any significant damage.

The NY Times has an article trashing the rioters:

“We wanted to show these politicians that it’s us who’s in charge, not them,” said a construction worker from Indianapolis, who is 40 and identified himself only as Aaron. He declined to give his last name, saying, “I’m not that dumb.” ...

But they could not find Mr. Schumer’s office. He said they asked a Capitol Police officer, who tried to direct them. But they appeared to have gotten nowhere near the minority’s leader’s office. They ended up smoking a few cigarettes inside the building — “We can smoke in our house,” Aaron said — and one of his friends, who would not give his name, joked that he had gone to the bathroom and not flushed.

This is supposed to be a description of criminal activity, but is it? Asking for, and getting, police directions to Schumer's office? Smoking cigarettes? Not flushing the toilet?

BLM rioters would have burned the building down.

Update: NY Times says a Republican congressman is being canceled:

Simon & Schuster said on Thursday that it would cancel the publication of an upcoming book by Senator Josh Hawley, one of several members of Congress who tried to overturn the results of the presidential election.

Mr. Hawley, a Missouri Republican and Trump ally, has been criticized for challenging the results and accused of helping incite the mob that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday. His book, “The Tyranny of Big Tech,” was scheduled to be published in June. ...

The subject of Mr. Hawley’s book, which was already available for preorder on Amazon and other retailers, is not about the election or Mr. Trump, but about technology corporations like Google, Facebook and Amazon.

So a leading congressman writes a book on censorship, and it is censored.

One party rule has begun

One party rule has begun with the shooting and killing of a Trump supporter.

The election was rigged in the sense that (1) 95% the institutional influencers, such a broadcast media, social media, newspapers, universities, Hollywood, Deep State, unions, etc were totally in the blue team; (2) the election was conducted as never before, in order to suit activists on the blue team; and (3) there were many vote-counting irregularities.

To this day, the blue team media claim that the election was free and fair, but I cannot find anywhere on the internet a detailed rebuttal of the allegations of stolen votes.

If the election were really free and fair, then it would be demonstrably so, with no secret software, observers sent home, counting hidden from video cameras, etc.

Instead, we have internet monopolies banning discussion of how unfair the voting was.

This is all going to get a lot worse.

Update: The K-12 school administrators are also on the blue team, as one county just sent out this letter about their propaganda plans:

Yesterday, we watched in horror and outrage as a violent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly effort to disrupt the certification of the election victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It also left us with questions as educators and parents as to how we would help our youth and children make sense of this assault on our democracy. As educators, we are charged with the responsibility to educate students about the important history that shapes current events, ...

We are encouraging students expressing fear or distress about what they witnessed to reach out to their teacher, principal or counselor for support.

Here is a similar message. No, the assault on our democracy was the refusal to have a free and fair election according the longstanding procedures.
The disturbing images of an angry mob of armed white militants storming the halls of our democracy were blasted across screens today. Our nation has never witnessed an event like this in recent history and it’s difficult to make sense of the confusing, frightening scenes, let alone explain the situation to our children. ...

NEA offers the resources below on talking about white nationalism, racism, and violence with students and kids.

Just a few months ago, we had race riots that burned down buildings. All this angry mob did was break a few windows.

Twisted childrearing in the 21st century

We are going to see a lot more stories about America degenerating. Here is one that is reported like a regular news story.

The NY Post reports:

Busy Philipps revealed her oldest child, Birdie Leigh, is gay.

Philipps, 41, gave insight into Birdie’s journey on Thursday’s episode of her “Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best” podcast and shared that 12-year-old Birdie prefers they/them pronouns.

“Birdie told us at 10 years old and we immediately … I mean obviously, I knew that Birdie knew,” Philipps said.

The “Dawson’s Creek” actress shares Birdie and 7-year-old daughter Cricket Pearl with her husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein.

Philipps admitted she has done a “bad job” with pronouns when talking to or about Birdie but was working on it because of how important it is to their identity.

My guess is that they will be spending $25k a year on psychiatric treatments.

How our health experts failed us

I sometimes see people thanking Anthony Fauci, or the CDC or FDA or WHO, for work on COVID. Or schoolteachers for heroicly leading zoom classes.

I wonder why. Fauci is our highest paid federal govt employee, so he is already being compensated. Throughout 2020, he lied to us about masks, lockdowns, and herd immunity. When confronted, he would rationalize it by saying that he was moving the goalposts for the public good. The WHO is still lying to us about herd immunity.

It now appears that the school shutdowns were entirely unnecessary, and did no good in preventing disease.

And of course there were many other absurdities, such as encouraging BLM riots while shutting down all other gatherings.

I wonder what would have happened if we had no FDA, CDC, WHO, or Fauci.

The CDC blocked all COVID-19 testing because it said that it was developing its own test. Then it scrapped its test because it was contaminated. Without the CDC, we would have had private companies distributing tests in early 2020.

The FDA was sitting on large stockpiles of drugs that safely treat COVID-19, but blocked anyone from using them. Those drugs might have saved thousands of lives. The FDA even has rules that caused the trials to be delayed, in order to recruit more Hispanic Americans. Which is more important, approving a drug to save lives, or satisfying some stupid bureaucratic diversity quota?

The COVID-19 vaccines were developed in Jan. 2020. If there were no regulatory or legal impediments, they could have been marketed to the public in early 2020. Supplies would have been limited, and most people would probably not want an experimental vaccine. But many would, and if people saw that it was working, then the company would make a lot more and a lot more people would voluntarily get them.

Before you say that this would be unethically using the general public as guinea pigs, you should realize that these vaccines, and every other drug, gets tested on human subjects before approval. The FDA insists on supervising the process, and delaying everything for what is usually years. Under Operation Warp Speed, Pres. Trump reduced the process to about 11 months.

But even with the approvals, we are still stuck with sub-optimal procedures. For example, maybe we could save more people faster by giving single doses to everyone. We are only giving double doses because that was done during the FDA-testing phase. No one is allowed to revisit that thinking, even tho the testing showed that most of the benefit came from the first dose.

Letting the CDC prioritize vaccine distribution has resulted in policies that kill old folks because they are mostly White.

In short, we may have 200k more dead than what we would have had if the FDA and CDC did not exist.

Meanwhile, NY Times columnist David Brooks complains that Jewish brainwashing does not work:

This is the year that broke the truth. This is the year when millions of Americans — and not just your political opponents — seemed impervious to evidence, ...

So many of our hopes are based on the idea that the key to change is education. ...

It turns out that if you tell someone their facts are wrong, you don’t usually win them over; you just entrench false belief.

One of the most studied examples of this flawed model is racial diversity training.

He goes on to explain that if you force White Christians to sit in a class and be lectured that they are evil racists who owe something to Blacks, Moslems, and other groups, then they are unpersuaded.
Finally, our training model of “teaching people to be good” is based on the illusion that you can change people’s minds and behaviors by presenting them with new information and new thoughts. If this were generally so, moral philosophers would behave better than the rest of us. They don’t.
Brooks started the column talking about "truth". These classes do not teach truths. They try to manipulate with "new information and new thoughts". The new info is that Whites should accept Jews telling them that they are inferior to Blacks.

If you actually tell people the truth about Whites and Blacks, they accept it.

NW Europeans invented the market economy

I mentioned theories about how the European invention of individuality may have predated Christianity.

Now anthropologist Peter Frost writes:

Some say the "Western European Marriage Pattern" began with Western Christianity — what would become Roman Catholicism and, later, Protestantism. By forbidding cousin marriages and by framing morality in terms of universal rules, the Western Church laid the basis for a new civilization (Schulz et al. 2019). Others say this pattern goes farther back in time; the Western Church thus assimilated pre-existing social norms from its northwest European converts (Frost 2017; Frost 2020).

Whatever the cause, northwest Europeans possess a behavioral package that has helped them create larger social networks independently of kinship. One example is the market economy. Keep in mind the distinction between "market economy" and "markets." The latter are as old as history, and yet for most of history they were little more than marketplaces — pockets of economic activity limited in time and space, incapable of becoming the main organizing principle of society. That role was filled by kinship. Production of goods for a market was secondary to the reproduction of life for one’s family and kin group.

The market economy did not originate in the markets of Greece and Rome. It ultimately goes back to the North Sea communities of the seventh century. There, trade underwent a sustained expansion that would in time eclipse trade on the Mediterranean, eventually creating the current global economy (Callmer 2002, see also Barrett et al. 2004).

A visitor to Earth a few millenium ago might have thought that modern civilization would first arise in China, India, Persia, or Egypt. But NW Europe passed up everybody in the several centuries. Then the USA passed them up. Academics commonly attribute this to Age of Enlightenment. Its supporters "hail it as the source of everything that is progressive about the modern world. For them, it stands for freedom of thought, rational inquiry, critical thinking, religious tolerance, political liberty, scientific achievement, the pursuit of happiness, and hope for the future." However history shows that NW Europe started leaping ahead many centuries earlier. The previous Dark Ages laid the seeds for individualism, Christianity, rationalism, and the market economy. Frost goes on to relate this to nationalism, liberalism, and globalism.
The liquidation of the nation-state was a process, not a point in time. Over the twentieth century our national elites went global and lost any loyalty they once had to the old working class of the West, eventually viewing it as an anachronism. After weighing the costs and benefits, they concluded it should be replaced with cheaper labor from other sources. The old working class has thus been caught in a vice. On the one hand, high-paying jobs are outsourced to low-wage countries; on the other hand, low-wage labor is insourced for those jobs that cannot be outsourced, typically in services and construction. The result? Non-elite individuals have seen their wages stagnate throughout the West, particularly in the United States. And the peoples of the West are being progressively replaced, even in their ancestral homelands.

Well, so what? Yes, they created the concept of the market economy, but that concept no longer belongs exclusively to them and no longer requires their existence. So why should they continue to exist?

The elites benefit from these shifts. The rich are richer than ever. But why would the American middle class go along with such a destructive scheme? It all seems like a stupid Netflix movie.

China bans overeating

The Western news media like to blame Red China for human rights abuses, such as putting Moslems in anti-Islam re-education camps, or using slave labor to manufacture Apple products. But these seem like sensible moves that any dictatorship would do.

China does spy on its own citizens, but I have never heard of it doing anything worse than the NY Times joining in the racial bullying and doxxing of an innocent 15-year-old girl.

But now China has crossed a line, and moved to deny universal human rights.

The London Guardian reports:

Xi Jinping’s war on waste is set to be enshrined in law, with the submission of draft legislation to China’s highest legal committee recommending large fines for businesses that enable or promote wasting food. ...

The popular phenomenon of mukbang videos – performative eating videos which originated in Korea and often feature excessive binge eating – were also banned.

Under the draft law submitted to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress on Tuesday, food service operators face penalties if they induce or mislead consumers to “order excessive meals and cause obvious waste”.

These stories make me proud to be American.

The mayor of New York did try to ban very large soda drinks, but he was decisively defeated by the wider public. We will never give up our guns, Bibles, or right to eat excessive meals.

Argentina Finally Legalizes Abortion

Another country has abolished its religious scruples, and gone along with the globalist program for transforming society.

The problem here is not that millions of Catholic souls will end up in Limbo. They probably would have been going to Hell anyway, so Limbo might be a good deal.

No, the problem is neatly explained by this essay:

Abortion of course isn’t purely about ghoulishly slaughtering children, as many evangelicals would have you believe. It is about completely flipping upside-down the power dynamics of society.

Free abortion creates a situation where women have an unlimited, free-for-all type ability to use sex to influence and manipulate men. It also fully removes any and all responsibility from women, enabling them to act with absolute impunity, without worrying about the consequences of any action.

We’ve seen this process take place in every single country where women have been given rights: women take over the society, and then basically just totally destroy everything, even whilst it does not appear to benefit them collectively or individually.

Now, the rest of the Latin American nations which have held out against this global vaginal onslaught are going to begin falling like dominos, as everyone on the planet gets lined up to come together under this new banner of global tyranny.

Men get suckered into thinking that they can pretend to be supporting women's rights, and in reality getting worry-free sexual favors.

The author of the above wrote a good Christmas essay. For his opinions, he has been banned from the .com domain of the internet, from Google, from the banking system, and from social media. He has to hide out because of the harassing lawsuits against him.

What I learned in 2020

At the end of each year, I like to summarize what I learned in the last year.

A major USA election can be stolen and a puppet installed as President.

Gene sequencing has medical benefits. After 25 years of hype about medical cures, it appears that the technology helped find the vaccines to stop the Wuhan virus. The sequence allowed the vaccine to be developed in two days! (Then a year in testing and production.)

The rich elites do not even need much of the infrastructure, and are happy to shut it down.

The public can go nuts about video showing a fentanyl overdose death (George Floyd), and nobody dares say the obvious truths.

I never thought that anyone would close the churches, and I am still surprised that they do not complain more.

Physicians can be fired, for questioning the necessity of lockdowns.

Our medical and scientific establishments are hopelessly politicized.

White Fragility is a theory of White Supremacy that academia accepts.

The entire news media attacked Pres. Trump as an authoritarian, while he is actually the least authoritarian President in decades. This was just explained by leftist journalist Glenn Greenwald, who makes these points:

1.) Donald Trump was never an authoritarian. That is, he never wielded the power that he could have.

In 2020 alone, Trump had two perfectly crafted opportunities to seize authoritarian power — a global health pandemic and sprawling protests and sustained riots throughout American cities — and yet did virtually nothing to exploit those opportunities. ...

2.) The authoritarian myth was made up by the media to attract clicks, dosh, and attention.

The hysterical Trump-as-despot script was all melodrama, a ploy for profits and ratings, and, most of all, a potent instrument to distract from the neoliberal ideology that gave rise to Trump in the first place by causing so much wreckage. ...

3.) The Democrats, among them Biden and his administration (he calls them “neoliberals”), as well as previous presidents who waged war without the proper authorities (e.g., Obama), are the real authoritarians.

... as I wrote in a Washington Post op-ed in late 2016, the U.S. Government itself is authoritarian after decades of bipartisan expansion of executive powers justified by a posture of endless war. With rare exception, the lawless and power-abusing acts over the last four years were ones that inhere in the U.S. Government and long preceded Trump, not ones invented by him. ...

4.) The Democrats are further culpable because they’re in league with the large monopolies, like Facebook and Amazon—companies that are really destroying America. (Greenwald goes on and on about this. )

What makes this most menacing of all is that the primary beneficiaries of these rapid changes are Silicon Valley giants, at least three of which — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — are now classic monopolies.

Greenwald is right about this. The press lying and manipulation of public opinion about Trump is beyond what I thought was possible.

NPR Radio promotes slavery reparations

NPR Radio On Point broadcast Confronting Misconceptions Around Race With Michelle Singletary, audio mp3.

She is a Black Wash. Post columnist and wants slavery reparations because she says all Whites today have profited from forced Black labor.

No, there are no net profits or benefits from Black labor. Blacks have cost the USA many trillions of dollars in crime, welfare, affirmative action, etc. White Americans would have been much better off if Blacks had never come to America. If there were an honest reckoning, Blacks would be pay Whites to compensate for damages.

The NY Times currently has some articles on the death of Breonna Taylor. But she was associating with illegal drug dealers, one of which shot a cop in the leg. The paper called it a "botched raid", as it is unclear whether the police properly announced themselves, and some of the shot were way off target. Okay, maybe some policemen could use additional training. Millions of dollars were paid in a settlement.

Is this really the best example of Blacks suffering discrimination? It appears to be just another example of Black criminals causing trouble and expense to the White community.

I see that the NY Times is getting some push-back for its article, I recently mentioned, about a college rejecting a girl for a 3-second private chat from several years earlier. But the criticism is too mild.

This girl was 100% innocent. She had every right to express her opinions privately. The details are none of anyone's business. She was being bullied by a half-black boy who disliked her because of the color of her skin. And the U. of Tennessee and NY Times took the side of the bully. And the NY Times doxxed in an attempt to ruin her life. It is disgusting.

How Bill Buckley purged conservatives

Steven Greenhut writes in an Orange County California op-ed:
One of the modern conservative movement’s greatest leaders, the late William F. Buckley Jr., retold a fascinating story from the run-up to the 1964 presidential election. As he explained in the Wall Street Journal in 2008, Buckley and his allies convinced Barry Goldwater to distance himself from the John Birch Society — a conspiracy-minded group that touted his candidacy.

Buckley noted that the society’s president, Robert Welch, had at the time a “near-hypnotic” influence on the right, despite his “wild” ideas: “(Welch) said Dwight D. Eisenhower was a ‘dedicated, conscious agent of the communist conspiracy,’ and that the government of the United States was ‘under operational control of the Communist Party.’”

Buckley realized that Welch’s fixations did a disservice to the anti-communist cause. So he convinced Goldwater to reject the core fallacy — “the assumption that you can infer subjective intention from objective consequence: we lost China to the communists, therefore the president of the United States and the secretary of state wished China to go to the communists.”

Goldwater, of course, gained the GOP nomination, and lost the general election vote by 23 percentage points. Thanks to Buckley’s efforts, however, the GOP vanquished various fringe groups.

This story has been told many times, including by Buckley himself.

The story was a simple power struggle. Buckley wanted control of the conservative movement. According to this, it was okay to lose an election by a landslide, as long as its leaders did not tolerate inferring subjective intention from objective consequence.

I sometimes denounce inferring subjective intention from objective consequence. I call it mindreading. I probably denounce it more than Buckley. But I do not agree with Buckley here.

You cannot win political office by purging the folks who only agree 90% with your principles. The above essay was praised by Libertarians, as they are even worse examples of ideologues who are content to lose all the elections.

Buckley is dead, but his National Review magazine continues his tradition by denouncing Donald Trump. The Left probably regards the magazine as the controlled opposition.

Opposition to the Birch Society has always been a little strange. The Society was primarily known for being anti-Communist in a time in which Communism was genuinely evil and a threat to America. So why oppose those who are fighting evil?

The Bircher critics fell into two camps. There were the Leftist Commie-sympathizers who objected to any criticism of the Left. And then there were the cuckservatives and controlled opposition who sought to appease those Leftists. Buckley and much of National Review is in the latter camp.

I have read a lot of criticism of Trump, and 90% of it infers subjection intention. Hardly any of it examine the objective consequences of his policies. Those consequences have been peace and prosperity. Instead, the criticism consists of name-calling and arguments about his supposed thought processes.

Here is another new article that details the Buckley story, and explains how he launched personal attacks on people and organizations he disliked. It adds:

Phyllis Schlafly had just graduated from City House, the now defunct Catholic high school in St. Louis, when Lindbergh gave his speech. It’s hard to imagine that the brightest girl at City House was unaware of America First, since Lindbergh had already given the same speech to 15,000 people attending an America First rally at the St. Louis arena.

Phyllis Schlafly was a tragic figure. She was the abused wife of the Republican Party, an organization which treated her with contempt until it was time to get out the vote. Then like the husband who had beaten her in a drunken rage the night before, the Republicans would apologize and sweet talk her into supporting them once more. Schlafly was a tragic figure because she was cut off from her natural constituency, which was Midwest, America First Catholics, in Alton, Illinois and St. Louis, most of whom were blue collar union members.

Phyllis was the victim of identity theft, perpetrated on her by the conservative movement by people like William F. Buckley, whose job was policing the conservative movement and expelling anyone who showed genuine, i.e., America First, conservative inclinations.

The article has a good discussion of how conservatism and Trumpism fit into history. Much of Trump's struggle has been against control-freaks like Buckley who do not want an open discussion of some issues.

Netflix vision of human future

I tried to watch the Netflix movie, The Midnight Sky, where George Clooney is a scientist stranded in the Arctic. After some boring scenes with an improbably little girl and some confusing flashbacks, I skipped ahead to see if the girl was a figment of his imagination. I didn't really want to watch a whole movie wondering whether some character was supposed to be real. The flashbacks are bad enough.

Clooney once starred in another sci-fi movie where all the action was in flashbacks and imaginary characters, and where the viewer could never tell what was supposed to be real and what was not.

So I skipped ahead, and everyone on Earth was dead! There was some unexplained disaster. The future of humanity depended on convincing some astronauts to settle on a newly-discovered moon of Jupiter, which seems like a paradise. That could be a figment of someone else's imagination, I am not sure.

This being Netflix, the movie had to involve a Black man banging a White woman somehow. So I skipped ahead again, to find out. Sure enough, the last two humans alive end up on Jupiter's moon, and they are a Black man and a White woman! From the woman's expression, she appears to think that she died and went to Hell.

Netflix knows more about the public taste in movies than anyone else. It tracks what shows people watch. More than that, it tracks when people skip scenes or quit watching. From this, it has decided that movies should have a lot of interracial sexual relations. And a fair amount of LGBTQ characters also.

This baffles me, because I don't know anyone who enjoys watching that stuff. I skimmed a few dozen user reviews, and I found none saying:

I enjoyed seeing Clooney hallucinate and persuade astronauts to avoid Earth and head to Jupiter. It was especially emotionally satisfying to see the human race depend on a Black man raping a White woman, and knowing that all future humans will be mulatto.
Nobody says that.

So I see a couple of possibilities. Maybe Netflix knows something that we don't know, and that millions of people secretly enjoy this stuff. Or maybe Netflix is controlled by sick perverts who see social justice racial humiliation as more important than making money.

Either way, these movies are disappointing.

Amazon Prime has a movie, Assassin 33 A.D., that is explicitly anti-Christian. Some Arab terrorists steal a time machine to go back to kill Jesus before he can found Christianity. Actually they say Islam teaches that Jesus was a prophet, but was not divine and did not rise from the dead. So they just need to kill Jesus to prevent him from rising from the dead. Yeah, it doesn't make much sense and is not intend to be taken seriously. Maybe it is a dark comedy, I am not sure. The heroes plan to go back earlier to make sure that Jesus gets crucified, as in the Bible. I did not watch it to the end, so I don't know if the timeline gets restored.

Blacks have been taught to hate Whites

This Gallup Poll on race relations says that 70% of Black adults in 2001 thought that White/Black relations were good. It was still 66% in 2013, but sank to 36% in 2020.

So what happened? Were there a lot of lynchings like Emmett Till? Did new Jim Crow laws get passed? No.

Barack Obama and the liberal press perpetrated a series of hoaxes about Blacks being mistreated. There was Trayvon Martin, the Harvard professor, Ferguson Missouri, George Floyd, etc. Then there were White politicians like Joe Biden pandering to Black voters by promising slavery reparations.

When the NY Times detailed the five or so important people who died in 2020, one was George Floyd. They mentioned his criminal history, but not his fentanyl overdose.

It is all a cruel lie. This Quillette article explains:

Full-time, year-round white male workers, specifically, earn 73 cents for every dollar ($57,003) an equivalent Taiwanese American woman makes ($78,153). A cursory glance at the data reveals disparities of this magnitude across the board, some of which are even more significant.
So obviously there is no big discrimination against either women or non-whites.

So why did the news media push these racial hoaxes? Obviously they have ulterior motives. In the case of the NY Times, they have a deep hatred of White Christian American culture. Every day they have articles about how they would like to destroy it.

Today's NY Times has an article naming and shaming a 19-year-old for once using a commonly-used offensive word in a 3-second Snapchat video 4 years ago. This is just cruel anti-White racial hatred. Because of racist attacks, she had to withdraw from college.

Jesus was a blue-eyed White man

The NY Times caters to Jewish readers, but occasionally lectures Christians on what they ought to believe, such as this column:
Trump evangelicals have turned Jesus’ message upside down. That’s called heresy. And, in the United States, this has created a toxic melding between white evangelicals and the Republican Party. We’ve seen the conversion of too many white evangelicals to the narcissistic and nationalistic cult of Trump, where the operative word in the phrase “white evangelical” is not “evangelical” but “white.” ...

Do you consider Jesus to have been a person of color?

Of course he was a person of color given where and when he was born. Blue-eyed white Jesuses exist only in American churches.

Jesus was born in Roman-occupied territory, and a lot of Romans were blue-eyed Whites. It is offensive to say that he was a BIPOC, when there is no historical evidence for that.

Some say that Jesus was a Jew, but he was a Christian, of course.

It is even more offensive to say that supporting Trump is a heresy. Trump has kept his promises, and worked for religious freedom and other rights for his Christian constituency. Nationalism is not a heresy, it is the job description.

No doubt the NY Times figures it can get away with these anti-Christian statements because they are in an opinion column of someone claiming to be a Christian. But he also admits that he does not subscribe to very much of what most people would call Christianity.

Fauci lies to manipulate the public

In March, Anthony Fauci told CBS 60 Minutes that masks should largely be reserved for healthcare providers. He said: “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”

He later admitted that he gave out bad info in order to manipulate public opinion.

Now he has admitted to doing it again, as the NY Times reports:

At what point does a country achieve herd immunity? What portion of the population must acquire resistance to the coronavirus, either through infection or vaccination, for the disease to fade away …?

In the pandemic's early days, Dr. Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did. About a month ago, he began saying "70, 75 percent" in television interviews. And last week, in an interview with CNBC News, he said "75, 80, 85 percent" and "75 to 80-plus percent."

In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks….. [H]e believes that it may take close to 90 percent immunity to bring the virus to a halt ….

Dr. Fauci said that weeks ago, he had hesitated to publicly raise his estimate because many Americans seemed unsure about vaccines …. Now that some polls are showing that many more Americans are ready, even eager, for vaccines, he said he felt he could deliver the tough message that the return to normal might take longer than anticipated.

"When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent," Dr. Fauci said. "Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, 'I can nudge this up a bit,' so I went to 80, 85."

So he is lying to us to promote vaccination.

Hardly anyone mentions it, but his wife is a big-shot bioethicist. I guess it is considered bio ethical today to lie to the public in order to achieve certainly policy. Not just by Fauci, but it appears that most of our public health authorities have this attitude. After all, they said that it was okay to participate in George Floyd riots.

Fauci used to be very controversial because of his positions regarding GRIDS/HIV/AIDS. I have not followed the details.

Fauci has blown his reputation several times over by now. Why does anyone listen to him? He is the US federal govt's highest paid employee, and the press treats him as if he were the source of infinite medical wisdom.

Merry Christmas.

The Unraveling of America

The UK BBC nominated this Rolling Stone essay for a prize:
Wade Davis holds the Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia.

The nation that defeated smallpox and polio, and led the world for generations in medical innovation and discovery, was reduced to a laughing stock as a buffoon of a president advocated the use of household disinfectants as a treatment for a disease that intellectually he could not begin to understand. ...

and his [Trump's] dispensing of medical advice concerning the therapeutic use of chemical disinfectants,

No, that was a CNN/NYTimes hoax. Barack Obama and other Democrats talked about using injecting bleach to treat COVID-19, but Trump never said anything about it. He only referred to some legitimate medical research.

So Wade is either a moron, or pretending to be one.

Most of the essay is an argument that the USA was the world's greatest country in the 1950s, but has been declining in the past few decades. But then it complains about those with a similar opinion:

For many years, those on the conservative right in the United States have invoked a nostalgia for the 1950s, and an America that never was, but has to be presumed to have existed to rationalize their sense of loss and abandonment, their fear of change, their bitter resentments and lingering contempt for the social movements of the 1960s, a time of new aspirations for women, gays, and people of color.
So what countries does he like? The most White countries, like Canada and Denmark, of course.

Wade is a distinguished professor of Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk, so I guess he is trying to say that White Americans are at risk. He cannot blame non-whites, because such opinions are not tolerated at his university.

Joe Biden just said:

“This country is doomed.. it’s doomed. Not just because of African Americans, but because by 2040 this country is going to be minority white European. You hear me, minority white European.”
It is at 1:14:40. The source says the "quote is being taken out of context". Okay, I link to the full recording so that you can judge for yourself. He also says "All kidding aside. ... I am not mincing my words."

The context is that he is telling a bunch of Blacks (and saying "y'all" to them) that we need to make progress on race relations and equity. I think that is correct also, because we are headed for civil war otherwise.

The message is similar to that of many others I have quoted on this blog, such as a book published a century ago on The Passing of the Great Race.

I have also quoted Biden as saying that it is a good thing that non-white immigration is reducing Whites to being a minority. This guy is senile, but at least he has a clear-eyed view that he is working for the destruction of the White race.

Biden also argues that his team doesn't want to say anything about defunding the police until after the Jan. 5 Georgia election, because that is very unpopular with voters.

High-profile Jew pretends to be oppressed

A Jewish magazine :
With just over two weeks until the two runoff elections in Georgia that will decide who controls the next Senate, all eyes are on the Democratic candidates who are hoping to flip the upper house. It’s a remarkable moment for Jon Ossoff, who may well be the most high-profile Jewish Democrat in the United States right now.

“I’m descended from Ashkenazi immigrants who fled pogroms in the early 20th century, and I grew up among relatives who were Holocaust survivors,” he told Haaretz in an exclusive interview last week. “So my Jewish upbringing instilled in me a conviction to fight for the marginalized and oppressed, and also to be vigilant where there’s the risk that authoritarianism may emerge.”

He says the Trump era has seen a dangerous rise in right-wing extremism, noting that “ethno-nationalism had been a threat to Jewish people throughout the world and our history, and a threat to minorities in American society.”

Ossoff goes on to argue that Jews need to stay aligned with Black as fellow oppressed people against Whites.

He is saying: My Jewish family brainwashed me as a child to hate White Christians by pretending that we Jews were marginalized and oppressed, just like Blacks.

Every Jewish kid is taught crazy stories about how Jews were once slaves in Egypt, but killed all the Egyptian first-born kids and escaped.

Jews are the most privileged group on Earth, and have nothing in common with Blacks. Jews just like to manipulate Blacks for political purposes.

Here is a strange comment on a family court free speech case:

Pavel Petrovich
December.22.2020 at 1:38 pm

Family Court is constructed from the Talmud and run by jews. If there was an allegation of sexual abuse, it would go to proper agency of the state government for investigation, not tried as part of a divorce proceeding…..see how the jews work? Child Sexual Abuse is a criminal matter…. there are no gag orders in criminal cases….not allowed. See how the jews twist everything to the point it is unrecognizable? Welcome to Amurika, run by jews for the benefit of jews….protecting child abusers is a hallmark of jewish law.

The parents dragged the kid into a public forum as part of their dispute, there is no right to privacy to uphold for the kid as his parents surrendered it on entering court….pretty simple. The decision is the work of paedophile protectors in the family court system…..a.k.a. JEWS

I don't know if any of the judges are experts in this case were Jews. The comment is on the blog of a Jewish law professor who certainly does not agree with the judgment.

But there is some truth to what he says. This case has a Talmudic odor to it. The judge commissioned some experts to investigate some dubious criminal allegations, and then declared that no one could publicly contest their conclusions.

I am not sayin that Jews protect criminal behavior. They don't. But the whole system of using psychologist opinions in family courts is heavily Jewish influenced, as it is mainly Jews who believe in that sort of nonsense.

History of big brains

Razib Khan posted a nice essay on IQ:
Homo sapiens are very smart. They are very smart because they have large brains. This is not controversial. In relation to our body size, humans have bulging craniums housing large brains. About 20% of our caloric intake feeds our brain when we’re resting even though it’s only 2% of our body weight. It’s a calorically expensive organ. ...

Around 200,000 years ago the growth of our brains leveled off, probably due to biological constraints. ...

And H. sapiens and its brain found its barrier 200,000 years ago. In fact, the largest brained humans seem to have lived during the Ice Age, not today. Since the transition to farming our brains have been shrinking.

European Neanderthals had the big brains, so they may have been smarter than us.
Consider the polymath John von Neumann. A basis for the character of Dr. Strangeglove, von Neumann was one of the most brilliant individuals of the 20th century. The theoretical physicist Edward Teller said of von Neumann that he “would carry on a conversation with my 3-year-old son, and the two of them would talk as equals, and I sometimes wondered if he used the same principle when he talked to the rest of us.”
Possible. I have had many conversions with 3-year-olds, and about 90% of adult conversations are not much different. The adults have a largers vocabulary, and a broader range of experiences to draw on. But otherwise, they carry on conversations like 3-year-olds. It is usually easier to deal with them if I think of them as 3-year-olds in adult bodies. For example, in talking politics, I have never heard a Biden supporter converse at more than a 3-year-old level.
Tests are imperfect. But what is the alternative? Over the past few years graduate schools have been removing the GRE as a requirement for admission. What will the consequence be? If the history of China is any guide, those with connections and pedigree will benefit. Without a hard-to-fake entrance exam, recommendations from those you trust will loom large again. The abolition of the GRE will be a back door through which the “letter of introduction” returns. Who will be hurt by this? Who will benefit? There are many answers here, but one thing seems obvious: those without connections will suffer.
Yes, we are moving away from being a meritocracy. Universities are filling up with lower-IQ students.

Medical Journal denies that Sex is meaningful

The most prestigious medical journal in the world announces (paywalled):
We believe that it is now time to update the practice of designating sex on birth certificates, given the particularly harmful effects of such designations on intersex and transgender people. ...

Assigning sex at birth also doesn’t capture the diversity of people’s experiences.

Nothing else on the birth certificate captures the diversity of experiences either.

A biology professor explains the error in this, and why human sex is binary.

California dropped "mother" and "father" from its birth certificates several years ago. Some babies legally have two fathers and no mother.

The New York Dalton School may be the most racist:

Parents at Manhattan's $54K-a-year Dalton School pull their kids after it imposes anti-racism manifesto that focuses on 'challenges to white supremacy' - weeks after Megyn Kelly removed her children from another 'woke' NYC prep school

Posh private prep school Dalton drew uproar over staff's extreme demands
News of the eight-page memo was leaked this week by a furious parent
Lengthy list of 'demands' was signed by 129 faculty and staff members
It includes 12 diversity officers and giving 50% of all donations to NYC schools
All AP classes would be eliminated by 2023 if student scores aren't racially equal

Mode White American is a 60yo Boomer

The biggest long-term trend in the USA is the systematic replacement of Whites with non-whites. Wikipedia calls it a conspiracy theory, but the truth is plain to see.

A Pew Research analysis of 2018 US Census data shows this in a striking way. The most common ages for each race are:

27 - All Americans
58 - Whites
26-29 - Blacks, Asians, American Indians, Hawaiians, etc
11 - Hispanics
3 - multi-racial
Ok Boomers, you are about to be replaced by Hispanics and multiracial babies.

The data is two years old, so presumably the mode age for White is now 60, if they haven't died from COVID-19.

Barack Obama's daughter Malia is dating a White boy from another country.

In TV and movies, the changes have gone backwards in time. The London Daily Mail reports:

Jodie Turner-Smith plays Anne Boleyn in new Channel 5 drama that seeks to 'challenge conventions' by casting black actress as Henry VIII's executed wife and 'shine a feminist light' on her story
I thought that people watch these historical period dramas as a way of getting away from watching Blacks and others destroy White culture. No more.

Now the main source of White dramas is Eastern European Netflix shows. They feature White people. The American-made and British-made Netflix shows nearly always have White stars being sexually molested by Blacks or otherwise doing something perverted.

Meanwhile I see that the NY Times has finally confessed, after two years, that its reporter, Rukmini Callimachi, faked several of her prize-winning stories, particularly about ISIS terrorism. For the last 6 months, she has been reporting on Breonna Taylor. I am guessing that those were distorted also. NY Times is not saying, because Black lives matter.

Greece tries to prosecute for party membership

This NY Times article tells us how broken Europe is:
He’s a convicted criminal, found guilty by a Greek court in October and sentenced to 13 years in prison for his part in setting up and running the violent, neo-fascist Golden Dawn party, which the court ruled was a criminal organization. ...

In a court case that dragged on for five years and caught the world’s attention, Golden Dawn leaders and members were found to have formed and operated a criminal mob, destroying property, intimidating people, attacking leftist organizations and migrants and murdering an antifascist musician. Sixty-eight of its adherents were convicted.

A five year trial to extinguish a political political? Yes, obviously the trial was a political hit. If they really committed crimes, it would not have taken five years to prove it.
Golden Dawn leapt to prominence a decade ago, blaming the European Union, elites and immigrants, particularly Muslims, for the country’s ills as a calamitous financial crisis pounded Greece.
They should be blamed.
Mr. Lagos is several months away, at least, from being arrested and extradited to Greece to serve his sentence. ...

But the head of the Parliament’s legal committee, which handles requests to waive immunity, was adamant that nothing could be done to expedite Mr. Lagos’s case.

The lawmaker, Adrián Vázquez Lázara of Spain, said in a recent interview that Mr. Lagos is 12th on a list of 12 immunity waiver cases the committee must deal with in due course, and that they must be addressed in the order they were received. He warned that any deviation from the process could expose the committee to accusations of bias.

That is laughable.
While Mr. Lagos’s crimes are serious, the cases against the Catalan politicians are also “very, very serious,” Mr. Vázquez Lázara said. “They are accused of sedition!”

But sedition — incitement to overthrow the government — is no longer considered a criminal offense in many Western countries, while in others it is rarely prosecuted and carries only minor penalties. In addition, the Catalan politicians, unlike Mr. Lagos, have not been found guilty of anything as yet.

Sedition? They let Moslems run free while prosecuting Spanish Catalans for sedition?

A Communist country like China might prosecue that, but I am beginning to think that China has more free speech than we do:

In China, you are censored if you:

Talk against the government aggressively, and in particular if you attack Xi Jinping or the communist party directly.

In America, you are censored if you:

  • Talk about Jews
  • Point out that Jews are the single wealthiest group of people in the world
  • Research the Holocaust
  • Say the n-word
  • Misgender a tranny
  • Make jokes about a dead fat woman
  • Say that trannies aren’t women
  • Oppose homosexual marriage
  • Post black crime statistics
  • Post CDC coronavirus statistics
  • Post about Hunter Biden
  • Ask any questions at all about the coronavirus
  • Ask any questions at all about the coronavirus vaccine
  • Post information showing that Trump won the election
I am expectin a lot less free speech under Pres. Biden.

Zero evidence means a lot of evidence

Slate essay:
And of the top 100 players in the world, only one is a woman (Chinese grandmaster Hou Yifan). ...

Let me state unequivocally that there is currently zero evidence for biological differences in chess ability between the genders.

He cites anecdotes that female players have been insulted. No doubt. However, there is no mention of the possibility that male players are insulted even more.

It has become common to say "zero evidence" to mean "I refuse to accept what the evidence implies". The press says "there is no evidence that the election was stolen" to mean "it has not been proved in court that fraud changed sufficient votes to reverse the outcome".

The NY Times has an article on COVID vaccine skeptics, but they are the ones who are following the evidence.

Actually, the 4 vaccine skeptics quoted in the article are entirely reasonable. They just want to see more testing and evidence, and imply that they may get the vaccine when there is a more convincing case. It is foolish to believe that some FDA committee knows what is best for everyone. The pro-science people are the ones who want to see more scientific evidence, not the ones who blindly trust authority.

“As more information comes out, and things appear to work better, then I will weigh the risks of the vaccine against the risk of the coronavirus and make a judgment,” she said.
This article is a good example of the Jewish authoritarian mindset of that paper. Before the election, discussion of the vaccine was squelched. Then some official committee recommends it, and everyone is supposed to line up and get it.

Leftist support for White Supremacist arguments

There are three views about the USA founding.

1. Egalitarian. The founders wanted universal equal rights for everyone, even if they were hypocrites in their personal lives.

2. White supremacist. "We the People" really meant We White Men, and the USA is still White Supremacist today.

3. Compromise. The Constitution is silent on slavery because it was a compromise between free and slave states.

Argument (1) is based on the Declaration of Independence saying "All Men are created equal", and has long been promoted by Republicans.

Argument (2) is made today by the NY Times 1619 Project, which said that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery of Negroes. Also by those who complain about the supposed murder of George Floyd. It was also articulated in the Dred Scott decision, perhaps the Supreme Court's most famous decision.

Argument (3) is what I remember from history books.

I am not sure this issue can be resolved. I thought that it was resolved by the Civil War, but apparently not.

Here is a new book, carrying on the race wars, as reviewed in the NY Times:

In “Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America,” Ijeoma Oluo punches up rather than down, reckoning culturally, politically and historically with white men. ...

Oluo argues that all of us, “regardless of demographic, have played a part in upholding white supremacy.” ...

Yet, she insists, invoking pandemics, mass shootings, the climate crisis, economic recession and war: “White manhood is on a suicide mission.”

I think she is complaining that average White men are still superior to Black men and women.

I heard someone on the radio say that no defends what was done to George Floyd. In a way, that is true. I cannot find any public person who says that the cops were innocent, or justified.

On the other hand, I cannot find any public person who can explain what the cops did wrong, or what the cops should have done. Someone might say that the cop should have should more sympathy before the camera, or not put a knee to the neck, or tried to get medical assistance. But Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose. He was resisting arrest. The cops did arrange for medical assistance. The knee did not contribute to Floyd's death, as far as anyone knows.

Los Angeles now promises not to prosecute perps for resisting arrest. Would such a policy in Minneapolis have saved Floyd? I doubt it, but we shall soon seen if that policy causes more or fewer deaths.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo want to ban symbols of White supremacy. That could include the American flag, depending on how you interpret history.

Some weirdos are destroying Jeffrey Toobin

The NY Times reports on The Undoing of Jeffrey Toobin
“It wasn’t a full-out sexual act, but it was much more than a second,” Mx. Gessen said. “I was really, truly shocked.”
I don't want to pile on, as I never liked Toobin for other reasons. I would rather criticize him for his stupid legal opinions. But who is this character who was "shocked"? Wikipedia says:
Gessen is nonbinary and trans and uses they/them pronouns.[4][5] Gessen has written extensively on LGBT rights.[6] Described as "Russia's leading LGBT rights activist,"[7] they have said that for many years they were "probably the only publicly out gay person in the whole country."[8] They now live in New York with their wife and children.[9]
So it is not clear whether this is a man dressing up as a woman, or vice-versa.

The NYT authors are described:

Katherine Rosman is a features reporter on the Styles desk. She covers media, the business of fitness, and the politics of gender. She joined The Times in 2014. @katierosman

Jacob Bernstein is a reporter for the Styles desk. In addition to writing profiles of fashion designers, artists and celebrities, he has focused much of his attention on L.G.B.T. issues, philanthropy and the world of furniture design. @bernsteinjacob

And of course all of these characters are Jewish.

I don't know what is going on here. These men or women or nonbinaries, whatever they are, advocate for a broad range of perverted activities, but a man does something in what he thought was the privacy of his own home, and it cannot be tolerated because it lasted "much more than a second"?

Forecasting the End of the World

Glenn T. Stanton writes in Quillette:
Data released this summer indicates the beginning of the end of humanity can be glimpsed from where we now stand. That end is a dramatic population bust that will nosedive toward an empty planet. New research places the beginning of that turn at about 30 years from today.

This means that Thomas Robert Malthus, and his many influential disciples, had it precisely wrong. ...

human death rates from air pollution have declined by nearly half since just 1990. ...

Water is humanity’s second most immediate life need. The number of people around the world with improved access to clean drinking water increased 68 percent from 1990 to 2015, even as the population itself has expanded. ...

Food is our third greatest survival need. Contrary to grim Malthusian predictions, the United Nations explains that humanity now produces more than enough food to feed everyone on the planet. In fact, the Journal of Sustainable Agriculture revealed back in 2012 that “we already grow enough food for 10 billion people.” ...

Earth is becoming a much safer place for humans to live precisely because we are adapting to it better.

He is right that a lot of forecasts for the end of the world have been wrong, and that life is getting better in some ways.

But he draws the wrong conclusions. He seems to think that more people means more world-saving innovation, so we need more people, not fewer.

We had more innovation when the world had a lot fewer people. Today we have almost 8 billion people, but the number of innovators is less than a million. The rest are a burden.

Population increases are making the world worse. Traffic jams, expensive housing, scarcity, and even disease. Globalism that is destroying the middle class. Declines in real wages. Most people are in debt.

Yes, more people have clean water, but that is in spite of population increases. A few decades ago, California had plenty of fresh water for its population and agriculture. Now, overpopulation has caused many water problems there.

Hospitals can be busy with flu

Agitated by stories of hospitals with COVID-19 patients? For example:
Hospitals across the state are already overburdened. In southern California, the capacity of intensive care units has dwindled down to 10%. In Santa Clara county in the Bay Area, just 31 ICU beds remain for 2 million residents. San Francisco is projected to run out of ICU beds by 27 December.
But the article does not say whether it is any worse than a bad flu season. See this Time magazine story from only a couple of years ago:
The 2017-2018 influenza epidemic is sending people to hospitals and urgent-care centers in every state, and medical centers are responding with extraordinary measures: asking staff to work overtime, setting up triage tents, restricting friends and family visits and canceling elective surgeries, to name a few.
NPR Radio reported, a couple of weeks ago:
The actual number of coronavirus infections in the U.S. reached nearly 53 million at the end of September and could be approaching 100 million now, according to a model developed by government researchers.

The model, created by scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, calculated that the true number of infections is about eight times the reported number, which includes only the cases confirmed by a laboratory test.

If that is true, then we could reach herd immunity a lot faster than what the experts are predicting.

Update: The CDC has a page on the differences between COVID-19 and flu. They are minor, and a test is required to distinguish them.

Unraveling the Mindset of Victimhood

Psychologists have finally figured out that victimhood is just a personality disorder that some people are cursed with.

SciAm reports:

Based on clinical observations and research, the researchers found that the tendency for interpersonal victimhood consists of four main dimensions: (a) constantly seeking recognition for one’s victimhood, (b) moral elitism, (c) lack of empathy for the pain and suffering of others, and (d) frequently ruminating about past victimization.
So where did the researchers go to find all these people with four dimensions of interpersonal victimhood?

I would rather not say. Click on the link to find out.

This new Black Pigeon video explains why it is bad that we have adopted a culture of victimhood.

Free Will v. Insanity

I posted that I am beginning to think that beliefs about free will are key to understanding a lot of attitudes.

If somebody said that he hears voices in his head, or that he has a twin that no one can see, or believes in an invisible world, then you would infer that he is schizophrenic, or suffers some similar mental illness.

If somebody believes in Heaven, Hell, angels, and devils, and prays to an invisible god, you would infer that he is religious, but not crazy.

But what do you make of somebody with an advanced scientific degree who believes:

* You have identical twins in distant universes.

* Our world is just a simulation, running on a computer in a more advanced civilization.

* The universe constantly splits into parallel universes, where every possibility is played out for real.

* All events have been pre-determined, from the first second of the Big Bang.

* We have no free will, and all actions are controlled as with a robot or puppet.

All these things seem like symptoms of mental illness to me.

Another tipoff is having crazy ideas about randomness. Insane people sometimes think that nothing is random, and every coincidence is a manifestation of some bizarre conspiracy of causes. Or they think that randomness is one of the fundamental forces in the universe, disrupting everything. Either way, the insane man is troubled by imaginary demons that are sabotaging his life.

So how am I supposed to think about respected physics professors who believe in this crazy stuff? I do not have a good answer for this.

I have reviewed some debates on free will, from respected professors. Nearly all of them reject free will. I think that they are all insane. I wonder how they can even function in their daily lives with such peculiar beliefs.

Sam Harris is someone who seem intelligent, and even has a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, and yet vehemently argues that he is a biochemical puppet with no free will. In his case, it appears that his free will was destroyed by recreational psychodelic drugs that he began taking at age 18. In his podcasts, he talks about practicing Eastern Buddhist meditation, in order to try to get free will. He sounds very convincing, just as the schizophrenic can be very convincing that he really does hear voices in his head.
