The End Of The Fence Sitting Era

The 2010s were a decade of transition. At 11:59 PM on December 31, 2009 who thought that transvestites would be the most coddled and protected class in America as the decade came to a close? Hell, when we woke up to the new decade on January 1, 2010 the gheys still couldn't get "married" in America. Trump was still a pop culture icon and Joe Biden was the VP, sniffing little girls and remembering what century we live in. We still kind of thought that Iraq and Afghanistan were about "the war on terror". I was working a corporate wage-slave job and thought that the future was offices, long bathroom breaks and leaving early on Friday. We were so young and naive!

Things were getting sketchy in the 2010s. Thanks to the Great Uniter Obama, race relations were going in the toilet. Black Lives Matter rose to prominence and a mediocre quarterback got super rich by protesting a make-believe problem. In a span of less than 18 months, from June 2015 to November 2016, we had gay "marriage" magically found to be a Constitutionally protected "right" and Trump got elected in what likely will be a final middle-finger from the white working and middle class. By January of 2017 most of the country was slowly waking up to the realization that there was a small group of people in America who think they make the rules and those people hated our guts and want us dead.

But you could still kind  of hide in plain sight in the 2010s. As long as you didn't raise a ruckus you got to keep working and consuming. Most of my people spent the decade on the sidelines, other than 63 million of us casting a secret ballot for Trump.

In the Roaring 20s? You have to poo or get off the pot. Being neutral won't be an option. They will be coming for you and nothing will be safe. Not your homes or your kid's schools or your church.

Every single one of us will have to choose, more or less openly.

Will you get on the boxcar bound for the gulag?

Or will you stand up and be counted and declare you will not comply. You will not live in a pod. You will not eat bugs. 

There isn't going to be a third option. Think about where we are right now today. Then think about how much things have changed in the last ten years. Finally try to fast forward ten years to December 31st, 2029. Crap is accelerating already, it is only going to pick up speed.

Your safe job, your pension plan, your health insurance. None of that is going to remain safe for long. When they have taken everything away from you that keeps you from speaking up, will you finally stop being silent?

In this war for survival between tribes, your silence means you acquiesce to your own destruction.

Pick a side.

How Did That Happen?

1993 seems so long ago, almost ancient history to our modern sensibilities. I was in college, recently married. Bill Clinton was President. The Soviet Union had collapsed. Things should have been going great, but already we were seeing the beginning of instability happening. The economy was moving rapidly toward globalization. The personal technology revolution was just getting started and the consumerist culture was in full swing. It was a time that seemed peaceful and prosperous on the surface but social unrest was boiling up underneath.

Along came a highly underrated movie starring Michael Douglas in one of his best roles, Falling Down. Douglas plays the character of William Foster, an every-man character who realizes that the world has changed and left him behind. The movie starts out with him sitting in traffic and slowly losing it, before he simply gets out and walks away from his car. The rest of the movie is a slow progression of Foster walking home. All he wants is to go home. Along the way he gets hassled by some gang members that he stands up to and drives off. He slowly transforms from an unarmed guy with a briefcase and shirt and tie to a guy with a bag full of guns dressed in a black outfit. We find out he is a guy who lost his job and family and in the end appears ready to kill his estranged wife (Barbara Hershey) and daughter before he is stopped by a retiring cop Prendergast (Robert Duvall in a great role for him) who is a parallel to William Foster, a man from a different era who is seeing things change for the worse. This movie would never be made today because it serves as a reminder, even one with a highly negative context, that men can only be pushed so far.

At the end, the exchange between Foster and Prendergast is great. I won't spoil the ending for you but this is the critical moment in the movie.

"I'm the bad guy?...How'd that happen? I did everything they told me to."

Obviously the proper response to getting screwed over after doing what you were told isn't to shoot up fast food joints but haven't we all come to this place a time or two?

We didn't want much. Mostly we wanted to be left alone. We go to our crappy jobs and pay our exorbitant taxes. We obey every stupid law and file our tax return every year, hoping that some bitter flunky paper-pusher at the IRS doesn't have a bad day and decide to wreck our lives because we didn't check the right box on an insanely complicated form. We allow the government to tell us what we can do with our own property, we obey the traffic laws, we don't make waves. All we want is to have a nice family, raise our kids, maybe take a vacation now and then and someday retire to enjoy our grandkids.

But they won't just leave us alone.

We get constantly badgered about "gun violence" and get blamed for mass shootings and told that we can't be allowed to own guns by the same people who are constantly protected by people with guns. But then we turn on the news and see the same glowering mugshots staring back at us after every shooting, the same people who don't look or act or think like us who do most of the killing in this country but somehow we are the bad guys. I am not posting pictures on social media with my pants hanging down, grinning at the camera with my gold teeth and holding a stolen pistol sideways. Why should I have to give up my guns because a small fraction of the population can't control their temper, think through the consequences of their actions or respond to the slightest insult without shooting each other?

Or we get harangued by imbeciles about "white privilege", a way to make us feel guilty for working hard and achieving something in our lives. My "white privilege" looks a lot like hard work and sacrifice but saying that makes people who choose to not work hard feel bad and we can't have that. Human free agency is hate speech, nothing I have is the result of me working hard and people who don't have anything are not culpable for their poor life choices. No matter what I do, it is heads I lose, tails they win.

Our history itself is being erased and rewritten. We have Norse gods and Arthurian legends portrayed as black men. We are blamed for every ill in the world and get no credit for the fact that virtually everything positive any person in America or really around the world enjoys came from the sweat, blood and tears of people just like me. We give generously, we show up to every disaster, we have welcomed millions of people from failed societies to our country and in response we get spit on. Everywhere we look we see degeneracy and we are endlessly mocked by people who have utterly failed to build anything of worth.

So yeah. We are kind of pissed and getting more pissed every day.

After decades of being obedient, beaten down and berated it is easy to forget that we come from people who were better at war than anyone else. Before we were set on the path to civilizational suicide, we were the people who explored the globe and conquered everything we saw. The relatively tiny island of England once had an empire that spanned the globe. Europeans were exploring the world when Africans hadn't even figured out the wheel. Every single modern convenience of note is the result of my people. Even today there isn't a nation on earth other than maybe China that could go toe to toe with us and last more than a week.

In spite of the best efforts of those who hate us, the blood of warriors and conquerors still flows in our veins and we are slowly waking up. Those arrayed against us have regularly overplayed their hand and are accelerating this error. A lot of us aren't going to make it and honestly a lot of us probably shouldn't. Generations of dysgenic breeding, entertaining and consuming ourselves to death and being trapped into wage-slavery have made us soft, weak and fearful. I include myself in that accusation, but we are starting to wake up. Everyday the tiny cabal of people who control the machinery arrayed against us are struggling to keep a lid on things, deflecting attention, hiding the truth and replacing it with lies but it isn't working as well as it used to.

So we are in a race. On the one side they are trying to replace us or neuter us via cowardice and degeneracy. On the other side we are trying to wake our people up to the danger and the calamity of what awaits us if we lose. I believe 2020 is going to be a pivotal year. Not because of who wins or loses the election, that crap is fake and gay. No, because this might be the year when my people realize that we are in a war, not with Iran or Russia or China but with a fifth column in our own country.

The 2010s were the calm before the storm. What is coming next will determine the fate of humanity. That is not wild hyperbole. If we lose, civilization will die. If we win, freedom and prosperity will reawaken. Those are the stakes and they have never been higher.

Oh Libertarians....

It is the end of the year and that means the endless stream of increasingly desperate sounding email appeals for donations. Libertarian outfits like Mises Institute are no different.

Yes, our society was built by previous generations shaped by the vision of a Jew who emigrated to the U.S. in 1940, over 160 years after the U.S. was established. The hubris of that statement is pretty breath-taking.

The bigger issue is that while socialism is poisonous and deadly, we are going to get it sooner rather than later. Not because we lack the better arguments, we have those in spades. No, the problem is that people like the Mises Institute are still arguing about issues and concepts when we are in a losing and pretty much lost war of identity and tribe. We lost the war of ideas half a century ago and we are entering the final stage where global Marxism mops up the last remaining holdouts.

Libertarianism in 2019 is like a football coaching staff whose team is down by two touchdowns, the two minute warning has sounded and they are out of timeouts but are still arguing about what color they should paint the locker room.

America has added tens of millions of new "Americans" who come from dysfunctional societies that have proven to be utterly incapable of forming or sustaining stable nations and who have neither the intellectual capacity nor the inclination to even begin to understand basic economic theory. They aren't good at much but they are great at having lots of babies and figuring out (with help) how to game the system. They don't want to leave America a more free and prosperous nation when the die, they want to get what they can while they can and the consequences for the future be damned. Thanks to the universal franchise, a Somali migrant with a 70 IQ, no job and a gaggle of kids on welfare gets the same number of votes that I do and they absolutely understand that they can use those votes to take what others have earned. Ilhan Omar is not going to be persuaded by clever theories and ideas from Mises, she is waging total war against the racial tribe she thinks are preventing her own people from being ascendant in America.

In 2020, the only ideas that are going to matter are tribal identity, survival and a hardening of our minds to contemplate things that were unthinkable a few decades ago. We can argue about economic theories later, right now our only concern must be survival. If we lose, freedom and liberty die forever.

The American Dream Is Racist Apparently

When America was mostly populated with Americans, rather than the detritus of the rest of the world and their offspring, we all believed in something called the American dream which had as it's pinnacle owning your own home. The dream involved a pretty simple plan. You worked hard, saved your money and used your savings as a downpayment on your own home. The little ranch home with a neat lawn and a white picket fence was what most people aspired to. It was a noble and healthy goal. You set aside immediate consumption, avoided getting into debt and invested your savings in what was for most people their most valuable asset: a single family home.

The American dream was available to anyone who would follow the plan. I have written before about my father coming from an impoverished background, working his way through college and medical school and not only owning his own home but building a successful medical practice. He came from the least privileged background of anyone I know and he rose above it because that is what you can do in America.

Single family owner-occupied homes are the lynch-pin of healthy communities. Unless you are very wealthy, most people buy their home via a mortgage of 15-30 years, most commonly 30 years. With a mortgage you used to have a significant down-payment to go along with your loan so you had a lot of money invested personally in the home. That meant that most people buying a home intended to stay in that house for an extended period of time. My wife's parents still own the home she grew up in and have owned it for over 50 years. My parents owned the home I grew up in for probably at least 30 years before retiring to a lake house.

When you buy a house you have ownership in it. It is your house, not a place someone else owns that you rent by the month to have a roof over your head. Owning your home and investing both time and money into it makes for a community, not simply an ever-shifting set of economic units renting a few rooms while they work and consume until they move somewhere different to work and consume and a new economic unit replaces them in their rental. There is something quintessentially American about owning your own place. Americans moved from the Eastern cities to go "out West", a term we still use today, because you could own your own farm. Owning your own home also signified a certain level of responsibility. When the country was new, you had to own property or pay taxes in order to vote. I would be completely in favor of replacing the universal franchise with that system.

It wasn't a perfect system of course. My maternal grandparents never owned a home as far as I know. My wife and I rented for many years as our family was growing and I moved us around chasing higher salary jobs. Many, many years ago there were barriers to non-whites in America buying homes in some neighborhoods. Still, home ownership is something that should be a goal for most American families. Owning a home can be expensive and a hassle but it is also incredibly fulfilling, healthy and wholesome.

So of course the Left wants to destroy it.

In Virginia, the incoming Democrats seem hellbent on kicking off the next Civil War in the former capitol of the Confederacy. They are threatening sweeping "gun control" laws, with Virginia Governor Ralph "Got Away With Blackface" Northam already suggesting a higher prison budget to jail recalcitrant gun owners. Now we see a Virginia State House Delegate, Ibraheem Samirah, talking about overriding zoning laws to "permit multi-family housing in every neighborhood".

Democrats in Virginia may override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.

The measure could quickly transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be built on suburban lots in neighborhoods previously consisting of quiet streets and open green spaces. Proponents of “upzoning” say the changes are necessary because suburbs are bastions of segregation and elitism, as well as bad for the environment.

The move, which aims to provide “affordable housing,” might be fiercely opposed by local officials throughout the state, who have deliberately created and preserved neighborhoods with particular character — some dense and walkable, others semi-rural and private — to accommodate people’s various preferences.

We will see how that plays when the wealthy liberal denizens of Northern Virginia suddenly start getting low-income apartment complexes in their high income neighborhoods and that diversity they talk so glowingly about but pay to avoid starts intruding on their kid's school.

Mr. Samirah doesn't mince words about who he is targeting.

“Single-family housing zones would become two-zoned,” Samirah told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Areas that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part in helping out.”

“The real issues are the areas in between very dense areas which are single-family zoned. Those are the areas that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a bubble,” he said.

He said suburbs were “mostly white and wealthy” and that their local officials — who have historically been in charge of zoning — were ignoring the desires of poor people, who did not have time to lobby them to increase suburban density.

In other words, them suburbs is too white and so they must be punished by having non-whites build duplexes and apartments in their neighborhoods. He didn't get the memo that liberal whites love diversity as long as their kids can still attend schools that are entirely white, Asian and Jewish with a couple of high achieving minorities to appear in photos on the school website. They still mention that single family suburban homes are "bad for the environment" but as we will see, that isn't their primary concern. Oh, the Daily Caller pointed out that Mr. Samirah comes from an apple-pie American family:

His father is Jordanian refugee Sabri Samirah, who authorities banned from the U.S. for a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, in part because of his membership in the Muslim Brotherhood, the Chicago Tribune reported in 2014.

Nice, what an enriching individual! What would we do without the children of terrorist sympathizers in our legislatures?

What we are seeing in Virginia is just a taste of what will happen nationally when the Democrats take permanent control of the Federal government. Their vengeance pogroms will be fierce and swift and you, gentle reader, will be the target of their fury.

The Left is always coordinating stuff like this. Notice this recent article from The Nation by one Kian Goh. Mr. Goh seems to think that the American Dream needs a serious rethinking.

California’s Fires Prove the American Dream Is Flammable

The tweet from The Nation read: If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership.

Time to rethink private homeownership. I think we already have tried this and it led to the lovely architecture we saw in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union where people were crammed into giant concrete block apartments like livestock. Glorious! Again, Ms. Goh couches her argument in an "environmental" framework but we all know that what she is really pushing for is forcing everyone to live in cities, forcibly reintegrating people who choose to live in suburban and rural areas in large part to get away from vibrant diversity. Having suburbs, highways, cars and cheap gas has meant that middle-class people (white people) have been able to move away from the cities we built as they have become unlivable thanks to diversity. The goal is to punish us for this by forcing us to live in "diverse" neighborhoods. Of course it would be worth asking why anyone should be forced to live in diverse neighborhoods, wouldn't we want to live there if it is so great? Oh that's right, we are "racist" for wanting our kids to have decent schools and for wanting to raise our family in safe neighborhoods.

The other obvious question is why we have people named Kian Goh and Ibraheem Samirah deciding what the American dream should or shouldn't be. People named Smith and Johnson and Anderson figured that out centuries before the Goh and Samirah families decided to come from their own failed cultures to tell us how we should change our successful culture to more closely match the one they fled from.

We are in the opening stages of an all-out assault on every single value that makes America the place people have risked death to get to for centuries. Free speech? That is hateful, it must go. The right to keep and bear arms? That leads to mass shootings so it has to go. Private home ownership? Racist and bad for the environment. Eating meat? Also racist and bad for the environment, we must all eat soy and bugs.

Every single leftist cause, from feminism to LGBT "rights" to raising the minimum wage to "environmentalism", all have a single source and a unified goal of global Marxism. The cabal pulling the strings has been taking the long view for the better part of a century while the rest of us are fighting each battle in isolation. Our vision must match theirs. I will likely not live to see a reborn Western world but that doesn't stop me from fighting for that future for my children and posterity. Likewise our commitment must match theirs and along with it a rethinking of what we are willing to do.

There is no second place in this struggle.

The Problem With Democracy Is Pretty Much Everything

In a year full of great posts from the Zman, Monday, December 23rd might be the best and the opening paragraph should be required reading.

From The Value Of Dumb Ideas:

Dumb ideas are a feature of democracy. The main reason for this is the majority of people trusted with a vote are average or below average. Democracy works on the assumption that people work in series. Connect enough of them, no matter their intellectual capacity, and you get enough brain power. In reality, people work in parallel, so the more you connect, the faster dumb ideas flow through society. Democracy is the form of government with the lowest resistance to dumb ideas.

In other words: 

One man, one vote sounds great until you meet enough people one man at a time

Or as many of the kids on the Dissident Right say:

Voting is fake and gay.

I have found it increasingly hard to stay wedded to the idea of democracy the older I get and the more voters I meet. Go to an average Wal-Mart in America, walk around for half an hour and then realize that most of the people you see are able to vote away your liberty, your money and even your life.

Think for just a moment about the act of voting in a leviathan state like the U.S. in 2019. 

In a republic, our modern U.S. style representative democracy means that I am represented at the Federal level by a President who is elected by an electoral college. The Left is trying to abolish this system to allow a few massive states full of non-white voters, in other words California, to decide our elections while leaving smaller states like my home of Indiana without a say. That is specifically what the electoral college is designed to prevent. So in my very reliably red state, I am one of a little over 2.7 million people who voted in 2016. That is not statistically significant. Our state has 11 electoral college votes out of 538, or around 2% of the total and 4% of the 270 needed to win election. So even with a large family I am a statistically insignificant blip in an already statistically barely significant state when it comes to choosing a President. I show up but my vote is meaningless in any significant sense.

What about the U.S. Senate? In 2018, 2,282,565 votes were cast in the state of Indiana in the Senate race between Republican Mike Braun and incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly. My vote was theoretically less insignificant but again my contribution to Mike Braun's winning margin was irrelevant. There are millions of people in Indiana and Mike Braun represents all of them but even Braun and Todd Young, my other Senator, are only 2% of the votes in the U.S. Senate. So again, I am a statistically insignificant voter represented by two guys who are a tiny fraction of the Senate.

The House of Representatives is supposed to be our local representative. Article One, Section Two of the Constitution established that each Representative would have a small district: The number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty thousand, but each state shall have at least one Representative... 30,000 people is a big number but since women couldn't vote, that reduced the voting population to 15,000 and a significant number of those males were children or otherwise ineligible to vote. So maybe 10,000 actual voters in a district that means that your vote starts to have some real meaning.

Is that still the case? In 1911, the number of House seats was locked down at 435 so as the population grew, so did the number of people making up a Congressional district. An individual Congressional district right now is made up of approximately 711,000 people as of the most recent census. That number will of course change in 2020 as many Trump voting districts will be lost to California and Texas thanks to counting criminal illegal aliens who are living in our country. They might not vote, although they probably do and Democrat are desperate to help them vote illegally, but they definitely draw Congressional representation away from actual Americans. So in my district of 711,000 my family and I are a little more significant but still pretty inconsequential in terms of total votes cast. Sure my Congressman, Jim Banks, is considered very "conservative", which mostly seems to mean that he rails against government spending while at the same time demanding more military spending so we can fight every other nation on Earth simultaneously. But he is one guy. Meanwhile there are 434 other Congressmen who are supposedly fighting for their own district's best interested and after the 2020 census, the number of Congressional districts working directly at odds with me and my family will skyrocket. So Jim Banks isn't going to be of much help.

Basically in 2019, a regular American working stiff without the extra income to make significant contributions to a politician and without the time and inclination to be an online influencer has essentially no say in their own government. That is just as true in a small population state like Wyoming and even more true in huge population states like Texas and California. Ask a conservative inexplicably living in California how much control over their government they have and when they stop laughing they will tell you it is somewhere south of zero.

Of course the way our system operates is not how it was intended to work. The system was set up for a much smaller nation, geographically and numerically, that was almost entirely ethnically homogeneous, made up of people with a similar moral foundation. Many early Americans and many of the Founders were deists and of those who identified with the Christian faith, I assume most of them were only marginally serious about it. Still, that cultural Christianity provided a common moral framework for our country. It was a high trust society due to our homogeneity. The Federal government was highly limited and the state and local government had far more control that they do now. There was no Department of Education full of bureaucrats who tell people in communities they couldn't find on a map in states they have never been to how to best educate their own children.

It is pretty obvious that a representative democracy where we have a universal franchise in a multi-ethnic society of 330 million people isn't working.

So what is the alternative? It is said that Winston Churchill uttered something similar to this: Democracy is the worst form of government except all of the other systems that have been tried. But he is also said to have declared: The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. Today we don't even need to have a conversation, we get inundated with ignorant, stupid opinions from people on social media 24-7. People who feel superior because they put their pronouns in their bio or who talk about "resisting" and "punching Nazis". On our side there are lots of Boomercons talking about how patriotic they are while putting the flag of a foreign nation in their bio or who think that the Constitution plus magic dirt equals immigrants being "natural conservatives". Or worse yet are the enormous number of people who spend all of their time fretting about what celebrities are doing or whether a sports team full of people who wouldn't give them the time of day are going to win or not. These people are blissfully ignorant and then on election day stumble into the booth to vote based on...well, whatever whim strikes them at that moment. These are people who voted for Obama and then voted for Trump and then voted for a Democrat for Congress, never connecting the dots to explain why voting for someone like Trump and then voting for someone who tries to "impeach" him makes any sense.

Trying to figure out an alternative to liberal democracy right now is a fun exercise. There are lots of opinions on it but the thing is, we need to rebuild first. None of this will matter without a much smaller, high trust, largely homogeneous society. I plan on spending some time talking about what we might do in the future but always with the recognition that we must first come through the fire before we can rebuild. That is the first priority.

Merry Christ-Mass Shooting!

Mass shooting(s) alert!

A busy weekend. In Chicago the news popped of a mass shooting with 13 people shot. Right away some indications were showing up.

- 13 people wounded but no one killed. Nice shooting Tex!

- A "house party"

- In the South Side neighborhood of Englewood which is 99% black.

Then we find out that the house party was a memorial for one Lonell Irvin, a would-be carjacker who was shot multiple times in the head while trying to carjack a concealed carry permit holder. Oops, should have picked a different car Lonell, or perhaps tried something truly novel like getting a job instead of robbing people.

Police reports say the shooting was sparked, as is so often the case, by a "dispute" that spilled out of the house and lead to gunfire. The police also are saying that people were being shot seemingly at random.

The incident stemmed from a dispute inside the home, Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said at a press conference Sunday morning. Shots were fired inside, and people scattered outside, he said. The gunfire continued as people ran out, with two people appearing to shoot “randomly” at those exiting the building. At one point the shots were aimed at someone in a vehicle.

When I get upset, my first response is to randomly shoot at people because I lack the basic self-control and ability to think about the consequences of my actions.

So you can pretty much assume that the victims and shooter(s) were all black, no NRA members were present and the guns used were almost certainly illegally owned by people with prior criminal records. In all, 38 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago with 5 of those being fatally shot. Most of the shootings seemed like targeted retaliations, people shot from vehicles or killed at home.

With warm weather predicted for the week, expect Chicago to see an uptick in shootings for the Christmas week. Also expect lots of yammering about the mysterious evil force of "gun violence" that is "plaguing our neighborhoods" and lots of "The NRA has blood on their hands" tweeting.

Meanwhile in 64% black Baltimore, another mass shooting happened at around the same time as the Chicago shooting.

At around 2 AM local time, seven people were shot waiting in line at the "iVilla Lounge". The news report leaves out the full name of the lounge which is the "iVilla Hookah Lounge". Their Instagram is chock full of pictures like this:

In this case, two shooters and 19 shots fired. Zero fatalities.

Two of those shot were reportedly 17. Now what exactly 17 year old teens are doing at a hookah lounge at 2 AM is none of my business of course but still I always wonder why people in this community never seem to connect that teens are shot in these mass shootings because they are hanging around with adults in the middle of the night on the street. The same report notes that this was far from the only shooting in Baltimore over the weekend:

This was one of eight shootings in the city this weekend.

The story is always the same. No one saw nothing, no suspect, no leads.

But wait, there's more!

CNN reports that there was another mass shooting, this time in Spring Lake Park, Minnesota. You haven't heard of Spring Lake Park? Me either but it is a suburb of Minneapolis and is 83% white. So that seems a little off with 8 people shot but then you look at the police statement and see the shooting took place at the Dala Thai Restaurant and Banquet Hall and the names of those shot are:

Chai Yang, age 19, of St. Paul, MN (deceased)
Ger Yang, age 29, of Pine City, MN
Keng Moua, age 19, of St. Paul, MN
Chimua Lor, age 22 of St. Paul, MN
Lee Vang Lor, age 38 of St. Paul, MN
Jann Her, age 34, of St. Paul, MN
John Thoa, age 26, of St. Paul, MN
Kou Yang, age 37, of St. Paul, MN

So not a bunch of Nordic Lutherans.

At least there is a little diversity in this shooting.

So to recap:

28 people shot in 3 mass shootings in 3 different states.

Not an NRA member...

...nor a white person.....

...nor a legal firearm....

....or anything that would be stopped by any new gun laws....

.....in sight.

Basically: gun control is an effort to disarm law-abiding white people because minorities can't stop shooting each other.

Merry Christmas indeed!

Wake Me When It Is Over

So Trump was "impeached" yesterday and the nation collectively yawned. Sure, some liberals got all excited and many no doubt engaged in some "self-care" over it but the rest of the country didn't pay much attention. Why would we? This is a sham and a farce. The entire proceeding have made a mockery of the already farcical United States government and turned yet another word, "impeach", into just another meaningless term like "racism" and "justice". This was not an "impeachment" in the sense of a dire, last resort move by one branch to remove a law-breaking President. This was a political maneuver that was predetermined from the moment Trump was elected, before he was even sworn in. It was an "impeachment" in search of a crime, a search that never turned up anything but went through anyway.

When Bill Clinton was impeached for the actual crime of perjury, it was a serious moment for the nation and many of the same Democrats pushing this "impeachment" decried it as a partisan effort. This is

According to the Constitutional process, the articles of "impeachment" now are supposed to go to the Senate. However wizened old bat Nancy Pelosi might delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate until she gets assurances of a "fair trial". What that means is anyone's guess but I assume what she really wants are assurances of a unanimous conviction by the Senate.

"Let me tell you what I don't consider a fair trial," she told the crowd of reporters. "This is what I don't consider a fair trial -- that Leader McConnell has stated that he's not an impartial juror, that he's going to take his cues, in quotes, from the White House, and he is working in total coordination with the White House counsel's office."

The audacity of Nancy accusing Mitch McConnell of failing to be "impartial" when everyone knows the outcome of the House "impeachment" was set before the first minute of hearings were held would be outrageous from anyone but a politician. It must be all of the Botox that allows her to say stuff like that without bursting into laughter. The delay is just another bit of showmanship, the Senate is not going to remove Trump from office so delaying the articles just pushes it out of the news cycle since it is backfiring so badly.

While I remain very skeptical that Trump will be re-elected, if he does win a second term it will be directly as a result of this overreach by Nancy Pelosi, bug-eyed Adam Schiff and that obese little goblin Jerry Nadler. They couldn't control their most radical members so they finally held their little show trial to placate people like brother marrying Ilhan Omar and Rashida "Impeach the mother effer" Tlaib and it might prove to be what pushes Trump into a second term.

On the bright side, this "impeachment" will serve as a new gold standard by which to measure whether someone is a serious person or an utter imbecile. If someone thinks that Trump did something that warranted "impeachment", you can safely assume that the person is a dolt and probably should be sterilized. At the very least you should treat anything they say as seriously as you treat anything a toddler says.

Don't think for a second this is the end of it. The Left is convinced that Trump has to be removed, and having been stymied yet again and with virtually no semi-legal means to pursue removal, it remains to be seen what exactly they are willing to do. The thought of Trump getting a second shot at election, especially opposed by dementia patient Joe Biden, is terrifying to them. Most of them won't be able to handle a second Trump victory so perhaps they will decide to get this party started and get even more violent.

We can only hope.

Speaking Of Foreign Interference

It is a week before Christmas in 2019 and there are still people on social media claiming that 12 Russians posting terrible memes swung the 2016 election to Donald Trump and it is totally unfair and makes his election illegitimate! No, seriously a guy was suggesting that yesterday and in his profile on Twitter claimed that we can't have a free and fair election....if the sitting President of the United States is allowed to run for re-election.

Yes, nothing says "free and fair" quite like telling one of the two political parties in America that they can't have their candidate on the ballot. The Soviets used to have great voter turnout and the communist won every election in a landslide, which is easy to do when you are the only one on the ballot.


I am sure that Russians do indeed try to influence our elections, as do operatives of China and Germany and every other nation on earth. After all, we are the biggest player around and have most of the nukes and most of the consumers. Conversely, I 100% guarantee that the U.S. is constantly meddling in other nation's elections to try to influence who wins so that the government is more favorably inclined toward the U.S.. It is all part of the game nations play. But one nation plays this game openly and arrogantly, while accusing anyone that questions them of a serious character flaw. Allow me to demonstrate:


To protect a foreign nation.

That does nothing for us.

Even calling it "cooperation", which I guess means we "cooperate" by providing them with huge amounts of money and technology and in return they graciously allow American men and women to die and get maimed to protect them.

I especially like the "David's Sling" reference to pander to the American evangelicals who think that the current nation of Israel is synonymous with the Old Covenant theocracy of Israel that they are required to support because the Left Behind books say so.

Can you imagine the United States Congress authorizing $500 million to specifically defend the United States, like our border for instance? Of course not, essentially all of the major players in both parties are unanimously sold on the idea that we need an endless flow of migrants, legal and illegal, to provide cheap labor.

Yet here we have an agent of a foreign government that wantonly lobbies the United States government for funding for that foreign government and does so without registering as foreign lobbyist and no one says anything. Not only that, but if you even mention it you are automatically considered to be an "antisemite". Hell, the President of the United States, Mr. "America First", is trying to make it essentially illegal to boycott Israel. Meanwhile AIPAC smugly throws it in our faces that they extorted half a billion from our government and daring you to say anything, which would likely get you banned from Twitter. These same people would feign outrage and shock if anyone suggested that they have an outsized influence over our government.

Our government officials are being suborned every single day but it isn't by Russians or Ukranians. It is by operatives of Israel who openly and arrogantly brag about doing so.

Sometimes tropes and stereotypes exist for a reason.

Institutional Religion, Organized Grift

If you read my old blog you would come away with a couple of impressions. First I disdain almost all forms of institutional religion and second I despise the Mormon "church". The former because I think institutional religion is mostly self-serving and interested in preserving itself and the latter because I hate being deceived. So it was pretty juicy red meat when I saw this headline from the Washington Post:

Mormon Church has misled members on $100 billion tax-exempt investment fund, whistleblower alleges

You don't say?

The Mormon religion is one of the least transparent organizations around when it comes to finances. Local "wards" and "branches" take the collection and deposit the funds which are then mostly transferred to the main church accounts. No one knows what happens to it after that. In most Christian churches, the finances are pretty open for the membership to examine. That doesn't entirely stop fraud and foolish spending but it certainly is better than a black hole where your hard earned dollars disappear.

Each family is grilled annually over their "tithing settlement" which the official Mormon website describes this way:

Tithing settlement is an opportunity for each ward member to meet with the bishop to make sure his or her donations records are correct and to declare to the bishop his or her tithing status. It gives the bishop an opportunity to discuss with families the principle of tithing, encourage a generous fast offering, and discuss other financial and spiritual matters.

What this really means is you get called into the bishop's office, interrogated about whether you really donated 10% to the "church" and whether that 10% was net or gross of taxes and what that means for how "worthy" you are to attend the Mormon temples. Spoiler alert, if you only donate 5% you probably aren't "worthy" to attend the temple and scoop up those sweet, sweet "blessings" which include magic underwear and being daubed with oil while wearing only a tunic by some old dude.

But if you are a member, what you know about the finances of the "church" that demands 1/10 of your earnings is next to nothing. The funds are swept up by the "Administrative Office" in Salt Lake City and the average Mormon has no idea what happens to those funds and no say over how they are used. As it turns out, an awful lot of those funds aren't being used for anything but hoarding and occasionally bailing out Mormon businesses. From the WaPo:

A former investment manager alleges in a whistleblower complaint to the Internal Revenue Service that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has amassed about $100 billion in accounts intended for charitable purposes, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by The Washington Post.

The confidential document, received by the IRS on Nov. 21, accuses church leaders of misleading members — and possibly breaching federal tax rules — by stockpiling their surplus donations instead of using them for charitable works. It also accuses church leaders of using the tax-exempt donations to prop up a pair of businesses.

A spokesman for the church did not respond to detailed questions from The Post about the complaint. “The Church does not provide information about specific transactions or financial decisions,” spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a statement.

That isn't a typo:


Ruh roh Shaggy!

According to this whistle-blower, the Mormon religion is sitting on an enormous investment fund that they pay virtually no taxes on. This graph from the article paints the picture:

Double the size of Harvards endowment and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation? Holy crap! The way the exemption on taxes is supposed to work is that an organization must use their assets for charitable or educational purposes, not to just hoard the money and invest it.

Philip Hackney, a former IRS official who teaches tax law at the University of Pittsburgh, said the complaint raised a “legitimate concern” about whether the church’s investment arm deserved its tax-exempt status.

“If you have a charity that simply amasses a war chest year after year and does not spend any money for charity purposes, that does not meet the requirements of tax law,” Hackney said in an interview. Hackney, who served in the IRS chief counsel’s office, has been retained by The Post to analyze the whistleblower documents.

Also according to the article, the Mormon religion collects nearly $7,000,000,000 per year from their reported 15,000,000 members which is about $466 per member but as a former membership clerk I can confidently say that less than half of the reported "members" are active in any sense. You have to go to great pains to get your name off the membership rolls of the Mormon religion so there are a ton of people who haven't attended Mormon services for years and don't consider themselves Mormons who still are counted as members. By contrast, the Roman Catholic faith in the U.S. claims 170 million members, a similarly dubious claim, but only $8 billion in donations or around $47 per "member".

When we were members of the Mormon religion, we were very young with a rapidly expanding family because that is what you are supposed to do. We struggled to pay our bills and while you could get some aid from the church, it was highly embarrassing to do so. That didn't stop the bishop from calling us into his office annually to ask if we had proven our worthiness to God by giving money to the Mormon religion instead of paying our bills. Meanwhile the Mormon leadership was sitting on tens of billions of dollars that were allegedly being set aside for the "end-times":

In a speech in March 2018, Caussé linked the church’s financial strategy to the “prophecies about the last days.” Just as the church maintains grain silos and emergency warehouses, Caussé said, so it “also methodically follows the practice of setting aside a portion of its revenues each year to prepare for any possible future needs.”

Preparing for the apocalypse is a major theme in Mormonism. Unlike the almost-as-kooky notions of "The Rapture" where believers will be swept up before the end-times tribulations, Mormons expect to live through the tribulations and they set aside food and other supplies to weather the coming storm. You might notice a lot of survival/prepper outfits are located in Utah. I get why you would set aside grain and have farms and stuff but in a SHTF situation, what are you going to do with $100 billion in electronic assets?

I would like to say that Mormons are unique when it comes to hoarding charitable donations but that isn't true. In my years as a bank manager I had a lot of local Christian churches as customers and they were great because most of them were sitting on some large cash deposits. One customer was a local church with nearly a million in the bank, set aside for a "capital improvements" project down the road. Meanwhile the church was located in an economically distressed area in the middle of the last big recession so there were plenty of people who could have used some help, but the church leadership were mostly concerned with a new addition to their building that would sit empty most of the week. I did some snooping around way back in 2011 and I estimated that the Southern Baptist Convention was sitting on real estate worth over $40 billion with a "b" and that the SBC spends only around 10% of their "tithing" on mission work. The rest stays in-house to pay for clergy and buildings.

My general opinion is that institutional religion is to the Christian faith (and Mormonism is not and never has been Christian in any sense) as Conservatism Inc. is to the political Right. It is mostly concerned with keeping the hustle going and the more prominent the "leader", the more likely they are just a grifter who found a way to avoid gainful employment. The single greatest impediment to the spiritual growth of most Christians is their church. In Mormonism you have most of the worst aspects of institutional religion coupled with a culture of judgment, secrecy and cult behavior. It was not at all surprising to learn that the Mormon religion is sitting on a huge investment portfolio that is kept secret from the members. While Mormons are warned against investigating criticism of their faith too closely, I hope that many of them start to wonder why they keep putting money in the plate and suffer the indignity of being interrogated about their finances when their religious leaders are just hoarding those funds.


As a fun aside, I notice that the official website of the Mormon religion no longer is www.lds.org as it had been for a long time but now is https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org. No mention of the word Mormon or even the "Latter-Day Saints" in the web address. All part of the endless rebranding of the so-called Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. It isn't really surprising that famous Mormon Mitt Romney emulates his religion by changing with every passing wind.

Still Stanky In Jersey City

Oh look, more awkward news from the Jersey City shooting! Now a pawn shop owner has been arrested, a nice fellow named Ahmed A-Hady has been arrested as a felon in possession of a firearm. Of course he isn't legally permitted to have a firearm but that apparently didn't stop him from possessing several. Weird, I thought more gun control laws would stop this sort of thing. From NBCDFW:

Federal prosecutors said they searched A-Hady's store and allege that while he admitted to owning two handguns purchased in 2007, he "falsely denied" they were there. (After a 2012 conviction on state controlled substance-related charges, he is no longer allowed to possess firearms.)

One of his relatives ultimately told authorities A-Hady had a safe at the store with guns inside. A search turned up three handguns there; further searches there and at his home turned up a total of 10 weapons and more than 400 rounds of ammunition, including some hollow-point bullets.

A-Hady now faces up to 10 years in prison on the charge against him. Attorney information was not immediately available.

Hollow-point bullets! Holy crap, those are super rare!

Meanwhile we still don't know why the shooting started with a cop being shot in a cemetery and only then did the two shooters drive a short distance to the kosher market and opened fire. Police responded within a matter of minutes, which seems pretty fast to me, and in this video there are a number of plain-clothes cops with rifles leading the response, which also seems a little weird and makes me think there is more to this story than "just" a couple of black nationalist kooks shooting up a Jewish market, almost as if there was already a significant police presence in the area for some reason....

Makes you kind of wonder what really happened here. I have seen some pretty compelling stories on social media suggesting theories like this was a gun buying sting that went bad. The video above might bolster that claim. But like the Las Vegas shooting, I expect that whatever really happened will never be revealed.

Meanwhile Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to insist that the real problem is "white supremacy":

De Blasio also responded to criticism that he’s called out anti-Semitism by white supremacists, but hasn’t criticized the same behavior from the left.

“Where has the worst actions before two days ago – and I don’t belittle what happened days ago one bit, I think that’s quite evident – where have the worst actions, the worst anti-Semitic attacks happened in the United States of America in recent memory?” he said.

“Pittsburgh, Poway, other parts of the country – and who were the perpetrators? Right? White supremacists. We know this. We know this. So, I think it is dangerous – I think there is a reverse political correctness going on here. Let me name it for what it is. If folks on the right want to play this game with people’s lives, I would say you should be concerned about that.”

“The historic danger to the Jewish people has come from right-wing extremism. That is a fact,” he said.

In New York, however, the 22 percent rise in anti-Semitic incidents over the past year is not linked white supremacists.

Of course it isn't, we have lots of video proof that non-whites are the ones attacking Jews. So in spite of the actual evidence, Bill wants you to believe that the alleged rise in antisemitic attacks is all the work of "white supremacists".

These people hate you, want you dead and have no problem lying about you in order to inflame passions against you. Ponder that.

The Tragic And Predictable Case Of Tessa Majors

A young woman named Tessa Majors, an 18 year old student at Baranrd College in New York, was stabbed to death during a botched armed robbery by three teenagers who were out for a day of fun and excitement focusing on robbing people. According to police, they were intent on robbery and at least one of them was carrying a knife. Ms. Majors looks like a slightly built young woman.

Yet she struggled with her attackers and reportedly bit one on the finger. In return, one of the teens, Zyairr Davis, stabbed her multiple times, wildly and viciously: "Majors was rushed to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital, where she died of stab wounds to her face, neck and under her armpit, sources said."

Shooting someone is one thing, there is usually some distance and it can seem more "impersonal" but when you stab someone to death, it is up close and personal. Stabbing someone is a personal, ugly way to commit the already heinous act of murder. The media made a big deal of this murder because the girl was a cute college student stabbed to death in New York but now we know the identity of her murderer and that is going to make this story go away. I wrote a series of tweets reproduced below in the (very, very likely) event my account gets banned again.

An 18 year old is dead. A 13 year old murderer is about to spend a bunch of years in prison where he will probably become even more vicious. Calling them "teens" or "middle-schoolers" doesn't change the fact that he is a brutal murderer.

Tessa Majors' murder is the face of interracial violent crime in America, a small white girl attending a far left womyn's college where she was probably inundated daily with messages of her "privilege" and "white supremacy" and the value of "diversity" came face to face with reality and it killed her.

This sort of stuff has been going on in our most "diverse" areas for decades and it is only going to get worse. Get away from the blast zone now before it is too late.

Sméagol Is Whipping Up The Soyboys

Well this is charming. Sméagol Thunberg, who goes by the name Greta, is getting crazier by the day.

Greta Thunberg tells cheering crowd 'we will make sure we put world leaders against the wall'

The Swedish teen activist was addressing the crowd at a Fridays for Future protest in Turin, Italy.

She arrived there from Madrid where she had been attending the UN climate summit but said she feared the event would not lead to change.

She said: 'Unfortunately, we probably already know the outcome. World leaders are still trying to run away from their responsibilities but we have to make sure they cannot do that.

'We will make sure that we put them against the wall and they will have to do their job to protect our futures.'

Maybe she doesn't understand the implications of that seeing as she is mentally challenged but when I hear someone talking about putting people against the wall, I assume they are talking about lining people up and shooting them. Lining people up against the wall and executing them carries a very clear connotation.

Is that what she meant? No idea but if that isn't what she meant, someone better tell her to clarify her comments. She might not get the reference but a lot of her creepy adoring fans do. There is already an awful lot of violent rhetoric coming from the neo-Marxist Left and this isn't helping. On the other hand, having the soyboys and box wine aunties rise up in violent revolt might speed this whole process along so maybe she should do more threatening.

The Rocky Road To Re-Election

Anyone who will listen to me will hear the same thing: Trump almost certainly loses next year. Not because of the economy which is mostly great. Not because of impeachment. Certainly not because the Democrats nominate a rock star to run against him. It is all about simple demographics.

Audacious Epigone posted this a few days ago: 2020 Polling Prognostications and it is pretty sobering. Yes it is early and few people are paying attention right now but I anticipate an effort by the mass media and social media to push a disinformation and suppression campaign like we have never seen next year. I'll share one map from his post but you should read the whole thing.

What is noteworthy here is that not only does this show Trump trailing in places like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan that gave him the margin of victory in 2016, they also show states like Ohio, Georgia and the big one Florida leaning blue right now. I wrote back in June that I thought Florida would likely go Democrat in 2020, sinking Trump and nothing has changed to convince me otherwise.

Something else of note is the state of Texas. From AE:

The RCP average has Trump beating Biden in Texas by less than one point, and Texas was one of eleven states where Trump performed worse in the actual election than polling predicted he would in 2016. If Biden wins Texas in this scenario, the electoral blowout intensifies to 406-132.

Texas’ time is near. Being the only state in the country where whites vote more Republican than non-whites vote Democrat is not going to be enough in a place that is 41% white and falling and where just one-in-three births are to white babies.

The relatively close race between Ted Cruz and "Beto" O'Rourke in 2018 makes Texas seem like less of a sure thing than it has been in decades and it bears repeating that even if Trump ekes out a win in Texas in 2020, it is certain that no recognizable Republican will win that state again.

We are a little over two weeks from the beginning of 2020 and once the holidays are over, we are going to be in the thick of it almost immediately. There are only 51 days until the February 3rd Iowa caucuses and as of right now there isn't much time left for the challengers to derail Joe Biden. If his handlers are smart, they keep Joe away from crowds, cameras and above all children as much as they can, saving up his last few moments of lucidity for the debates.

Can Trump rally his 2016 voters, get white voters to start thinking about their collective self-interests and peel away enough non-white voters to pull out 2020? Probably not but a lot can happen in the next 11 months. Whatever happens, it is going to be wild and Trump is going to need an unimaginable string of luck and missteps by the Democrats to pull this out.

Why Isn't Black Nationalism More Widespread?

This is a post I started a while back and that has been sitting in my drafts unfinished. The events of last week had me thinking about it again after the shooting at a Jewish owned kosher grocery in Jersey City turned out to be the work of two blacks, David Anderson and Francine Graham, and the male had ties to the Black Hebrew Israelite cult. People on the Left were so excited that a Jewish market was shot up until it was discovered that the shooters were black antisemites who hate cops, something far more common than "white supremacist terrorists". So this story is disappearing. What is so jarring to the media is that only whites are supposed to be racist and anitsemitic but here are these black people obviously targeting a market because it was full of Jews. It doesn't compute and it hurts the narrative so it must go away.

Plenty of blacks are racist, hating whites and Asians and mestizos. Plenty of them are wildly antisemitic but are given a pass (see: Farrakhan, Louis). Actual antisemitic attacks generally happen....where there are Jews in significant numbers. No one is painting backwards swastikas on our local synagogue because there isn't a local synagogue. Colin Flaherty frequently posts unreported stories of blacks in places like New York attacking Jews but these stories rarely make the national news. On the other hand, if the Jersey City shooting had been carried out by "white supremacists"? That would be all the news talked about for weeks. There would be hearings on Capitol Hill, outraged speeches about "diversity" and "land of immigrants" and "this is not who we are". The "Holocaust" would be invoked and every one of the apparently millions of survivors would be trotted out. But when it is two blacks, it disappears after an obligatory accusation that it is really Trump to blame for black supremacists attacking Jews.

That begs the question. While "white nationalism" or the more common calls for a peaceful separation are pretty widespread among white writers on the political right, it doesn't get much traction on the minority left. Why exactly is that?

To hear black intellectuals and their white allies tell it, all of the myriad ills of black people are the result of white people. You would be hard pressed to get them to admit to a single flaw in black culture that is not somehow the fault of white people. Hell, blacks shooting up a Jewish grocery store is the fault of white people. You would think that blacks would want their own homeland apart from the pernicious effects of the intrinsic racism and white supremacy of European-descended people. They don't, apart from Farrakhan and some extremists in academia. Keith Ellison, former Congressman and Deputy Chair of the DNC, once apparently believed in a separate black ethnostate in "Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi" but he might be the highest profile mainstream black politician who ever did.

Sorry, but you have to take Florida or the deal is off.
Why would this not have more traction? Blacks would be away from whites and there would be a lot of support, some openly and much more quietly, from whites to do this. Blacks would have their own government and pre-built infrastructure. Most of the "racist" whites would probably move out of the region leaving behind only the most woke and servile whites. You could probably even make the case for some sort of lump sum "seed money" as "reparations"  to get things started. Most blacks and liberal whites insist that it is only systemic white racism that keeps blacks from being physicists and surgeons so a black ethnostate seems like the quick and certain solution to fixing every problem in the black community.

There are two main reasons why black nationalism hasn't caught on in the black community.

First, most black American understand at an instinctive level that they need white people around. You don't have to be an economist or expert at international relations like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to look at Africa, compare it to Europe and America and draw some conclusions like living in Africa minus the infrastructure tenuously held together and built by whites would mean a return to subsistence level living. No internet, no cars or mass transportation, no roads, no water treatment, no semi-reliable electricity. White taxpayers subsidize black schools in America and white established and run companies provide blacks with employment. We built and sustain the infrastructure and pay for the very police protection that blacks decry but that keeps their neighborhoods from completely collapsing into violent anarchy. Deep down in places they don't like to admit, most blacks understand that they need white people to form and sustain their communities because they don't want to end up like Africa, Haiti or Detroit.

The second reason is one I find more ominous. Behind the reluctance to separate physically and politically is a sense of vengeance. This one is less open but just as real.

Most black Americans have been pounded with messages of anger, resentment and revenge for their entire life. This is especially true for younger, more intellectually inclined blacks. They read the same circle of writers that all invoke racism, slavery, Jim Crow laws, lynching, in an endless mantra. They mostly seem to really believe that white people who have never owned slaves, never discriminated against a black person and barely have any contact with blacks are still guilty of tangible harm toward the entire black community and that they deserve punishment, that "justice" demands an open-ended, relentless punishment for the past "sins" of whites. Movies like Django Unchained and Twelve Years A Slave are pushed to constantly stir up anger toward whites with over the top depictions of violence and in the case of Django violent revenge porn.

Again, many blacks in America are assaulted with repetitive and false messages about white violence toward blacks, either directly or through cops as the proxy for white violence. Most blacks also believe that whites have a higher standard of living, better education, lower rates of crime, more per capita wealth, etc because they exploited and stole directly from blacks. No other explanation may be entertained. If blacks had their own state away from whites and failed anyway, what would that say about their entire narrative?

To go our separate ways would mean that contemporary white people "got away with it" and avoid paying what blacks are due from modern and historical wrongs they have suffered at our hands. The fact that most white people have minimal interaction with blacks and that by any measure and for a very, very long time blacks are getting the better end of the deal in living in a majority white nation doesn't matter. What matters is a very primal sense of being wronged and the desire to get revenge.

These two factors combine to make the idea of black nationalism/separatism very uncommon outside of the most extreme racialist segments of black academia. It isn't all that common among whites either but while specific talk of an ethnostate is still outside of the Overton Window, talk of peaceful separation and/or secession is starting to get some traction among more mainstream whites. This will accelerate next year when Trump loses and more rank and file conservatives realize they are going to be electorally irrelevant going forward. Tens of millions of people with hundreds of millions of guns inhabiting enormous swaths of the American mainland that discover they don't get a voice in their own governance is going to be combustible mix. As long as Trump voters think the system is still working, they are not going to get crazy but once they realize they have been hoodwinked for decades and that they no longer live in a republic? Yeah, that will be bad.

What about other groups?

There is probably more support for a mestizo ethnostate in the Southwest, which many Latinos see as conquered territory they are reclaiming via demographics as they cannot retake that territory by force. Again, there is the unspoken understanding that mestizos need the white population for tax revenue and infrastructure sustainability but at least in my opinion many mestizos think they could run their own ethnostate in America just fine.

There aren't enough Asians to form a separate state in America and they seem content to have communities within the community. There are already homogeneous Asian nations like Japan and Korea and Asians that are here don't seem interested in going back even though living in Japan or Korea would be closer to living in the U.S. than an African moving back to Africa. South Asians fled for a reason and seem to like living here among a white majority.

Jews also have their own homeland that is ethnically specific to them but they also have a very long tradition of being embedded in European based cultures and being quite successful. The Times of Israel bragged that 10 of the top 50 billionaires in the world are Jewish, including people like Sheldon Addelson, Michael Bloomberg and Mark Zuckerberg. Somewhere between 40-50% of America's 600+ billionaires are Jewish, in spite of Jews being a small fraction of the U.S. population. Lists of Jewish people in influential media, business and entertainment positions are heavily over-represented. So Jews aren't in any hurry to get away from white folks.

America is in a weird place. As the white super-majority that created the nation and conditions that make America the destination of choice for immigrants from all over the world evaporates, heading toward a sub-50% white population within a decade or so, the non-white residents of America who have mostly benefited disproportionately from living among us are as angry and resentful toward their hosts as they have ever been. Simultaneously declaring demographic displacement to be a white supremacist conspiracy theory and at the same time crowing about the new, browner, coming majority-minority America and mocking whites, non-whites seem to hate us but are also content to wait for immigration and the disparity in birthrates to supplant us.

In spite of a growing overt hatred for white Americans, blacks don't seem to want to leave us or let us leave. It implies both a dependency and a desire for proximity to punish us. Still, I wonder if black nationalism won't grow more popular in the coming years as more and more of us seek our own self-determination.

It Is Trump's Fault!

In record time, the Jewish Left is blaming the shooting of Jews by two blacks on....


Not kidding.

Mr. Pink and Mr. Freedman are both Jewish.

So instead of focusing on the actual attacker, they pivot to blaming Trump and "white supremacy", as if black supremacists are justified in their hatred of white people in spite of Trump spending all of his waking moments trying to find new ways to suck up to Israel and most of his supporters are just as fanatical in their devotion to defending Israel, sending them money and upholding our "Judeo-Christian values:

The bodies of several Jews are not even in the ground yet and many of their fellow Jews are trying to spin their murder at the hand of a black lunatic on Donald Trump.

Think about that and ask what kind of sociopaths would think that way.

A Shocking Twist No One Saw!

The Jersey City shooters have been identified. The New York Post is reporting they are David Anderson and Francine Graham and that Anderson was once associated with the lunatic group known as the "Black Hebrew Israelites" who openly call for violence against whites.

One of the two shooters who fatally shot up a Jersey City Jewish deli in what officials say was a “targeted” attack posted anti-Jewish and anti-police messages to social media before the chaotic attack that left three civilians and a cop dead, law enforcement sources said Wednesday.

Sources said David Anderson, who committed the deadly Tuesday attack with a woman identified as Francine Graham, was a one-time follower of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement and made the hateful postings on his social media page.

Mr. Anderson as you would expect given his past associations is a 47 year old black male.

The Black Hebrew Israelite movement is one of the rare non-white groups labelled as a "hate group" by the SPLC.

Heavy.com, which is often one of the rare outlets that reports on inconvenient information, also reports that David Anderson has a lengthy criminal history:

Public records obtained by Heavy show that David Anderson had a criminal record. Anderson was charged in 2007 with felony unlawful possession of a handgun in Hudson County, New Jersey. He was arrested in December 2008 in Hudson County on drug and weapons charges, including possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, specifically firearms, and unlawful possession of weapons, specifically an air or spring pistol. He was also charged with possession of narcotics. He was found guilty of a felony weapons charge and spent time in prison and on probation. He also had a previous arrest in 2004 in New Jersey.

Anderson, who has spent time living in Ohio and New Jersey, has also been arrested in Ohio. In 2009, he was charged in Portage County, Ohio, with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail. The case stemmed from a domestic violence incident in Kent, Ohio, records show.

Mutliple felonies including unlawful possession of firearms and he was in New Jersey which has very strict gun laws. Yet he managed to come up with firearms to shoot cops and some Jewish store owners. Weird.

As I said earlier, this story is going to disappear. A crazy black religious zealot who hated cops is not the sort of thing that advances the agenda, so down the memory hole it goes. But the fact remains that as usual violent crime is overwhelmingly concentrated in minority communities, a fact that is not only ignored but constantly misrepresented by the media who would have you believe that there a Klan members and literal Nazis running around America attacking black people.

The media is lying to you. Every minute of every day, everything they say is designed to warp your perception and replace reality with a fantasy.

Something Is Rotten In Jersey City

And I don't mean the general pervasive odor of garbage that pervades that entire region.

Six people were killed in what sounds like a crazy gun battle in the redundantly named Jersey City, New Jersey. As of this morning, only the police officer killed was named. Two of the gunmen killed by police are not identified, although some reports say one of the men frequently posted "antisemitic" remarks online and it sounds like the gunmen were targeting a Jewish owned kosher food market. Yesterday initial reports suggested the third gunman was on the loose and there was a description:

That same news story today doesn't make any mention of this suspect. The cops know who they are obviously as they have their online records that according to the New York Times this morning included by "anti-Semitic" and "anti-police" ranting.

Also from the news this morning:

The deadly violence erupted around 12:30 p.m., when authorities were alerted to gunfire at 223 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., which houses the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket.

When cops got there, they were “immediately engaged with high-power rifle fire,” Kelly told reporters.

I assume that given the duration of the gun battle, the "high power rifles" were some sort of AR/AK variant. Also weird, from CNN this morning:

"We do feel comfortable that it was a targeted attack on the Jewish kosher deli," Mayor Steven Fulop told reporters, citing surveillance video showing the shooters driving up to the store, getting out and firing into the store.

Jersey City Department of Public Safety Director James Shea stressed authorities are not labeling the incident as anti-Semitic. "The motives are still part of the investigation," he said.

People with rifles that have allegedly posted "antisemitic" remarks online pulled up specifically to a Jewish run kosher store and opened fire but their motives are still unclear?

Other reports suggest there were "bomb-making materials inside the truck". That same report says that there was an initial description of the suspects:

Police suspected two shooters early on, Heavy.com has learned from scanner dispatch audio. “We saw two shooters get out of the van. We saw two jump out of that van and go in,” said an officer. The description was “black male and a black female” wearing all black clothing, possibly with rain or trench coats. That officer told the dispatcher it wasn’t clear whether both shooters were still inside the store, but police didn’t see either come out. However, as noted, later reports indicated they were likely two males, not a male and female. Both died in the store.

And also that the cop who died was killed in an "ambush".

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that there was no credible threat but police were boosting protection for "key locations" in the Jewish community.

Like I said, something stinks here. The media seems to be tripping over themselves to avoid calling this a "hate crime" or "anti-Semitism". We have two dead suspects that no one is identifying although their identities are known. Most initial reports including police scanner traffic and later reports suggest the shooters were two black men, dressed all in black, with "high power rifles".

A couple of anti-Semitic, cop-hating black men who either targeted cops for assassination or targeted a Jewish run store. The media is being unusually cagey about motivations and identification which is usually a sure sign of a narrative failure.

Sounds to me like another story headed for the memory hole. Nothing to see here but in a city that brags about their "diversity", it appears once again that maybe that isn't our greatest strength after all.
