Argumentum ad hominem is usually characterized as a logical fallacy. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Of course, if the best you can do is call your enemies losers, you better not be a bigger loser yourself. If you’re trying to dismiss your political adversaries as irrelevant, you better be more relevant than they are. And if you are trying to characterize them as ugly and unfashionable, it’s better if, unlike Jeet Heer, you don’t have a phenotype which allows critics to dismiss your arguments laughingly just by posting your picture.

CUCKSERVATIVE REVIEWs notorious Kevin D. Williamson, who looks like Anton LaVey after he spent a month at the Golden Corral, forgot these truths when writing the current [September 11, 2017] cover story “The ‘N’ Word” which attempts to take down the Alt Right on the grounds that it attracts people Williamson finds icky. With the magazine’s recent trademark tin ear, its cover smears the entire Alt Right, and the concerns which it once embraced itself, as “The Little Nazis”—at precisely the moment when the Alt Left’s Antifa paramilitaries are acknowledged even by the Main Stream Media as an unprecedented threat. [Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley, By Kyle Swenson, Washington Post, August 28,2017, Black-clad anarchists storm Berkeley rally, assaulting 4,By Paul Elias and Jocelyn Gecker, AP August 27, 2017] Nancy Pelosi just condemned Antifa .

In so doing, Williamson exposes the Beltway Right’ s utter refusal to acknowledge the actual realities confronting younger Americans—as opposed to its wealthy puppet-masters.

In this lengthy article containing remarkably little information or analysis but plenty of snark and virtue-signaling, Williamson stretches attending a rally to protect Robert E. Lee’s statue in Dallas TX to smear the Anarcho-Tyrannized Unite The Right rally in faraway Charlottesville VA. Mostly, this consists of him making fun of the protesters and counter-protesters who showed up to the Dallas event.

Williamson displays an element of Narrative Confusion here. The Washington Post is wailing for the fashion industry to do something because too many Unite The Right protesters were dressed in khakis and polo shirts and so looked disturbingly “normal”. [Neo-Nazis are using fashion in an attempt to normalize. The fashion industry needs to speak up. By Robin Givhan, August 22, 2017]

And mocking the appearance of rallygoers is dangerous ground for any self-proclaimed “conservative.” Indeed, a staple of every year’s CPAC is the inevitable photo montages from self-satisfied Leftist reporters laughing about the unfashionable, fat, or simply absurd-looking attendees at the Beltway’s most important Conservatism Inc. conference [Rachel Maddow on CPAC: Conservatives Not Afraid To Fly “Freak Flag” by Glynnis MacNicol, Mediate, February 19, 2010].

The same is true of every Republican National Convention, when earnest, elderly and overwhelmingly white delegates are merrily mocked by fashionable metropolitan journalists. [Awkward dance breaks make the Republican National Convention worth watching, by Laruen O’Neil, CBCNews, July 20, 2016] In contrast, the various freaks, degenerates and thugs who attend Leftist gatherings receive loving coverage from the MSM.

Conservatives, in short, are not cool. Yet essential to “respectable” American conservatism is the idea that they are somehow still in charge of this country.

As Gregory Hood put it:

To be a Republican offers the appearance of status, power, and responsibility without the reality… Republican activists are a giant cargo cult of primitives who put the symbols of status before status itself. As the real America retreats from the immigration-inundated coasts, the culture collapses even in the Heartland, and the people demand an ever-greater welfare state, the Republican Party will continue to pretend they are defending their America.

[What Makes Republicans Tick, by Gregory Hood, Counter-Currents, November 2, 2012]

This projection works both ways. Witness the recent MTV Video Music Awards, where the most famous, powerful and fashionable people in the most culturally-influential nation in the world gave awards about how they were “fighting the system”—when, really, they are the Mouthpieces of that System [The 2017 VMA’s will feature a “Best Fight Against the System” category, by Abbey White, Vox, July 26, 2017].

What Steve Sailer calls the “Party of the CEOs” is overwhelmingly Liberal, with the rhetoric of Social Justice used as a weapon to take down class rivals.

Thus, Williamson’s explanation of the Alt Right—that its members are simply losers “without prestigious jobs, solid incomes, or happy families to provide them with a sense of social status”—falls flat. “European-Americans” are despised in the Main Stream Media, economically squeezed between outsourcing, H1Bs, and mass immigration and, despite all the Conservatism Inc. happy talk about “individualism,” discriminated against by a government which rewards racial solidarity for everyone except European-Americans with no protest from Establishment Republicans. It’s not surprising the “White Death” is spreading.

Because of economic pressure, a poisonous culture, and the failure of formerly traditionalist institutions, European-Americans are in crisis.

And what is Williamson’s “conservative” response to all of this? Move to where the jobs are. And shut up.

But even credits his case too much. Because, despite it all, the archetypical Alt Right member is not a “loser,” but winners with something to lose. This is why the threat of doxing and economic punishment is so dangerous to so many—especially those who have families (unlike, apparently, Kevin D. Williamson).

We now live in an America where expressing entertaining certain opinions in public, such as the existence of only two genders, the possibility of racial differences, or the undesirability of mass immigration, immediately leads to economic ruin and physical attack.

Because MSM journalists act as commissars who enforce this absurd egalitarian creed, there is no one of any intelligence in the “Land Of The Free” who doesn’t look over his shoulder before expressing even the most banal opinion. James Watson, Jason Richwine and Brendan Eich can hardly be described as “losers,” yet they suffered in this sick society by violating elite taboos—taboos that are metastasizing so rapidly that all of us alive today are surely violating some new moral commandment which will be newly invented a few years from now.

The one who obtains “status” in this society is the one who can most effectively lie, the one who can most smoothly echo egalitarian slogans while trying to avoid their consequences.

Of course, at a certain point of sickness, this means that anyone of any “status” in this society is only there because he or she is a parasite or a liar. And such terms are the kindest names which can be used to describe Movement Conservatives, the House Negroes of the West’s anti-white ruling class.

To be in the Beltway Right, you must actively resist taking ideas seriously, thinking from first principles, or extrapolating future consequences from present events, lest you transgress those boundaries which separate the Respectable Right from the “haters.”

The late Sam Francis once described neo-conservatism as “the harmless persuasion” because it didn’t fundamentally challenge the Left. Tom Piatak extended that to include National Review founder William F. Buckley and his legacy. But since Buckley’s death, his heirs have degenerated into The Pointless Persuasion.

Thus, Williamson concedes the “longing for community” expressed by the Alt Right is “legitimate” and credits Richard Spencer for understanding the fundamental unfairness (“real or perceived”) of double standards on race. However, Williamson gives no answers to these problems. Instead, he mocks the people who Notice them. Indeed, he suggests the Alt Right’s interest in such questions is simply a matter of “style,” rather than an actual grievance.

In this, Williamson tacitly agrees with the forthrightly Cultural Marxist Left, who deny European-Americans can ever be victimized or exploited because of their inherent “privilege.” Williamson may not actually embrace the narrative of “white privilege,” but he does suggest alienated European-Americans simply need to stop being “failures not only as people but specifically as men”—presumably by quieting down, finding some job, and quietly funding their own dispossession like all the other good little consumers.

Endless quantities of ink have been spent attempting to define the “Alt Right,” mostly by reporters and academics looking to pin a label on their political opponents and pathologize them. [Kill All Normies, by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, June 16, 2017] But the Alt Right can perhaps best be defined as “Post-conservatism,” a movement of the American Right that was born out of the failure of the Conservative Movement to conserve anything after the end of the Cold War.

It is a movement of those who understand that conservatism, and the West, face existential problems which demand addressing tough questions fearlessly:

  • How can the Islamization of Europe be prevented?
  • What future is there for “American Conservatism” if Texas becomes a Blue State because of mass immigration?
  • Why should Americans whites continue to oppose “identity politics” when every other race of people and the entire American elite uses it as the theoretical basis of their politics?

Williamson and his fellow Respectable Rightists can offer no answers to these questions except vague mutterings about Hispanics as “natural conservatives”—something I don’t think even they really believe. They know that to think or speak seriously about what faces our civilization will cost them what little status they have.

And so the Conservatism Inc. scam goes on—the Washington Generals of American politics keep trotting out onto the court, and the farce of a real contest continues.

But fewer people are attending these silly games. The stands are empty.

And regardless of what Williamson thinks about it, the future of the American Right, if it has one, lies with those who recognize the only way to win a rigged game is not to play.

    This is slightly off-topic, but I have been following two other interesting stories and developments within the conservative movement:

    Nick Fuentes – Attacked by the Conservative Establishment for Criticizing Israel

    Nick joins us to talk about the attacks he has suffered – largely at the hands of other right-wingers – for daring to voice controversial opinions. After hearing a little about his background, Nick explains how the Reagan Battalion, Ben Shapiro, and others have – unsuccessfully – tried to destroy him. This leads to a broad discussion on all that is wrong with the conservative movement, including its ahistorical understanding of America and peculiar aversion to “identity politics.” The show covers much more, including Marxist indoctrination in universities, the beliefs of the founding fathers, and the future of right-wing politics in America.

    Even more recently, they are going after Right Side Broadcasting Network host Nicholas Fuentes ; they’ve attempted to “dox, shame, bully, purge, and get him fired” according to GotNews.

    Well, yesterday evening one clever YouTuber claims to have been contacted by a low-level Reagan Battalion member who has verified the ringleader of the #NeverTrumper group as Benny Polatseck.

    This is highlighted by experts, some of whom believe that around 50% of Hassidic boys in Brooklyn are sexually abused.

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.

    I actually believe that Howard Greenberg’s “insanity due to inbreeding” defense was most likely sincere and accurate. I think the same could apply to this case, but instead of admitting to the high cousin marriage rates for certain Jewish groups, and the mental instabilities this causes, they went for the brain tumor defense. But I could be wrong, and the kid truly has a brain tumor.

    i would also guess that orthodox jews who observe all those tzniut laws are more inbred than other jewish groups.

    Yes, identity politics are a distraction, it's the political equivalent of sugar, it gets you high but eventually ruins you.

    It also answers the question why is Silicon Valley, Wall Street and the bankers all of a sudden are supporting identity politics? Because it's a counter to populism and economic awareness.

    This keeps people from noticing their politicians are all owned by wealthy special interests who don't give a shit about the people and it fact plan to reduce most to serfs in the name of profit. No one ever talks about why Wall Street gets a multitrillion dollar bail out for what amounted to was a scam concocted by the bankers and real-estate moguls and bond ratings agencies. Yet no one ever went to jail over this.

    It’s in the air. You can sense the utter desperation by Jews to cling to their political power, privileges and cash cows.
    The tide is turning.

    In reality, all of this IS bringing more people to ‘holocau$t’ Revisionism.

    And that ultimately signals the end to much of the Jewish supremacist activity which has been shielded by the ’6M Jews’ scam.

    “One should not ask, how this mass murder was made possible. It was technically possible, because it happened. This has to be the obligatory starting-point for any historical research regarding this topic. We would just like to remind you: There is no debate regarding the existence of the gas chambers, and there can never be one.”

    - endorsed by 34 “reputable historians” and published in the French daily Le Monde on February 21, 1979

    The ‘holocaust’ storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. What sort of truth is it that denies free speech and the freedom to seek the truth? Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.

    We’re talking about an alleged ’6M Jews & 5M others’ … [b]11,000,000[/b].
    There is not a single verifiable excavated enormous mass grave with contents actually SHOWN, not just claimed, (recall the claims of 900,000 buried at Treblinka, 1,250,000 at Auschwitz, or 250,000 at Sobibor, or even yhe 35,000 alleged at Babi Yar) even though Jews claim they still exist and claim to know exactly where these alleged enormous mass graves are.

    James, thanks, only had time for a quick scan. My decision to consider emigrating from the States back in the 1990s was probably percolating for a while, motivated possibly in part by American media elites who appeared to know nothing about the people or issues they were writing about. Had they experienced the genuine fear among many Whites for their personal safety and sweat equity following those odiously misnamed civil rights law of the 1960s? (BTW-I stayed in the States.)

    National Socialism does not exist as a meaningful phenomenon. But, there’s a pretty good case, in my opinion, we live under a Fascism Lite, governance by a constellation of corporate “estates”, their nominees in Congress, media, and so on, with the Constitution existing as a mostly empty, token legacy document referred to occasionally for its retro cool factor.

    I think The Saker suggests something pretty important in his recent article here–dumping on “Nazis” induces a faux “national solidarity” among a lot of wage- and salary-earners who can’t wrap their heads around the idea that nice guys wearing good suits and sporting clean fingernails are shamelessly engineering their displacement from the bourgeoisie.

    I've read a little by Charles Murray and I don't get the impression that he believes the left side is getting what it deserves in a moral sense rather than in an economic sense. He at least offers up a possible solution for some left side problems with his UBI plan. Hardly any other writers in the field offer up any practical solutions to the problems faced by the left side. The extent to which the left side is "responsible" for their problems is open for debate. He certainly doesn't blame them for being caught in the cross-hairs of devastating effects of the modern economy.

    I wonder if any of the donors ever look at the 990. They sure bring in a lot of more money than they spend most years. Interesting that they made that tax conversion to get $1 million in salaries moved over to the NR Institute so the donors can take a tax deduction for subsidizing it.

    Every once in a while you encounter a scandal like this in the philanthropic sector. It's not anywhere near the scale of the looting Fortune 500 CEO's and their camarillas engage in, but it's gross nevertheless. The man who ran FreedomWorks (a fellow named Kibbe) was paying himself a package of over $400,000 a year. The fellow who ran Catholic Answers (which employs fewer than 20 people) was paying himself a package of $250,000 a year. Once upon a time, the man who was president of Hillsdale College (which has a student body of < 2,000) was courtesy his chums on the trustees receiving just north of $1,000,000 a year and providing employment for several of his relatives. David Frum was for six years paid $100,000 a year to do flat nothing at AEI.

    The annual compensation for physicians averages about $230,000. I think what's typical for the President of an incorporated commercial enterprise is about $200,000. While Karl Keating was siphoning off $250,000 a year from the donors of Catholic Answers, the man who ran EWTN was earning $150,000 and managing 10x the staff.

    And what is Williamson’s “conservative” response to all of this? Move to where the jobs are. And shut up.
     
    It's easy being an "I got mine. Let them eat cake" Social Darwinist when you are parked at a "non-profit" 501c and paid huge for doing little more than dribbling out mind-dumps.

    From the NR IRS Form 990 (2016, online), Kevin Williamson is paid over $212,000 in total compensation for his caustic musings. Nice stash for merely gas-bagging several times a week about how it's good not to be a Deplorable.

    NR honcho and Neocon High Priest Rick Lowry is paid $300,000. His fat and happy pal Jonah Goldberg takes in over $264,000.

    Related to those numbers, Charles Murray is paid over $330,000 at AEI for recycling over and over that those living the Left Side of the Bell Curve deserve what they get.

    What can be a better job than smearing the Deplorables for fun, then collectively retreating to The Palm for thick steaks, double martinis and self-congratulations about how smart they are?

    I’ll say it again: the mouthpieces at the various organs of Conservatism Inc. are far more deserving of Julius Streicher’s fate than Streicher himself.

  15. “How can the Islamization of Europe be prevented?” (sic!). The answer to that is very simple: it is to be prevented to the extent and in the manner that we Europeans choose to prevent it! The very same people who scream “America First”, the very same people who preach “national sovereignty”, the very same people who say “don’t invade other people’s countries” (except if you’re Vladimir Putin, at which point you can invade any country you like!) are telling us in Europe how to govern our countries. Where has our national sovereignty gone all of a sudden? What sovereignty do we have if Americans are entitled to dictate to us how we are to exercise our sovereignty and manipulate, and maybe even rig, our elections and referenda? That’s exactly the same “anti-sovereignty” position that Putin is adopting towards Ukraine with his quaint “spheres of influence” theory. What’s being called the alt-right seems to be little more than a globalist propaganda scam designed to maintain US global hegemony and the immediate target is the European Union. Indeed, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the very same people who are financing anti-immigrant and anti-EU political parties in Europe are also financing the flood of refugees being used to justify those parties’ ideology!

    Your rant is a bit confused and confusing, but if I understood it correctly, you seem to be one of those Europeans who entertains the bizarre notion that the EU is some sort of 'counterweight' to the US Govt. And you, like so many of those pitiable individuals commenting over at The Guardian's BTL, are probably forever scratching your head and wondering why the EU then never seems to 'stand up' to Washington on any issue of substance.

    The reason why is very simple: Washington basically already controls the EU anyway. How? Well, Germany directly controls the EU, and the US controls Germany, so the US, therefore, indirectly controls the EU. And then, of course, you have NATO, the IMF, the Open Society Institute, the Trilateral Commission, and all the rest of our globalist alphabet-soup organizations. Europe has not been sovereign in any meaningful way since 1945 ... or did you think that Obama butting his head into the Brexit debate last year and begging for a 'remain' vote was all some elaborate exercise in reverse psychology? (And by the way, did that offend your sovereignty sensibilities? And if not, why not? Technically speaking, it shouldn't be any of Obama's business what Britain does, or Scotland, etc. Yet I don't remember hearing any of the Remainers complaining about this.)


    That’s exactly the same “anti-sovereignty” position that Putin is adopting towards Ukraine with his quaint “spheres of influence” theory.
     
    I hate to inform you, but there's nothing at all "quaint" about spheres of influence. As I just explained, pretty much all of Europe is part of Washington's sphere of influence, along with Japan, S. Korea, and much of Latin America. All in all, I'd say Washington's sphere of influence dwarfs those of Russia and China put together.

    What sovereignty do we have if Americans are entitled to dictate to us how we are to exercise our sovereignty and manipulate, and maybe even rig, our elections and referenda?
     
    Even if that were true, why would it matter? The EU has long been in the habit of disregarding your national referenda anyway! Just think of the Lisbon Treaty referendum in Ireland, or the recent Dutch referendum on Ukrainian visa-free travel.

    That’s exactly the same “anti-sovereignty” position that Putin is adopting towards Ukraine with his quaint “spheres of influence” theory.
     
    Putin has competition there, with the US State Dept. helping to overthrow the previous government. Imagine if, say, the Russians had done that in Canada or Mexico. Do you really think the US Govt. would have sat back and done absolutely nothing?

    Indeed, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the very same people who are financing anti-immigrant and anti-EU political parties in Europe are also financing the flood of refugees being used to justify those parties’ ideology!
     
    The logic's pretty convoluted here, but I suppose that if you really believed all that, you would be working to reduce and control immigration, so as to prevent the rise of the anti-immigrant parties. Likewise, if you really wanted to weaken the anti-EU parties, you would be working to make the EU a more democratic organization, rather than one which routinely bankrupts its own member-states, overrides their national referenda, and flagrantly disregards its own treaties and bylaws (as occurred, for example, during the 'refugee' fracas, when Merkel simply ignored the Dublin Treaty on immigration, which Hungary was trying to uphold).

    Be that as it may, Michael, we in the alt-Right are not your real enemies. Even if we had any real control over Washington's policies -- and we certainly don't -- we really wouldn't care much at all about how Europe ruled (or misruled) itself.

  18. National Review never had a golden age.

    It was worse than useless from day one, as was Buckley.

    The Old Left was already dead in the late 1950s. The Soviet Union ceased to be a Bolshevik evil empire when Khrushchev denounced Stalin, exiled Rakosi, purged Kaganovich and released Solzhenitsyn. The Democrats ceased to be a socialist party when the Kennedys called for upper bracket tax cuts, attacked the Teamsters, and attacked Eisenhower as insufficiently hawkish on the Cold War (“missile gap”).

    60 years ago it was already apparent that the New Left, focusing on issues of race and sex, was the real threat facing American conservatism, not the moribund economic Old Left.

    Cold War and tax cuts for billionaires was already an obsolete platform when National Review was founded.

    In 1955, any conservative worth his salt should have been pushing for a tightened immigration quota system to block Latin American immigration along with Asian and African immigration, independence for Puerto Rico, and effective strategies to cripple the activist courts and prevent the New Left’s long march through the institutions.

    They claim to have about 160k subscribers, which wouldn’t even come close to paying their bills. They conduct three fundraising drives a year which seem to bring in significant revenue. I’m guessing there is a group of 50 or so large donors that are keeping the thing going.

    Pretty much every magazine which trafficks in opinion, book reviews, and discussion of public affairs and literature generally has been a part of the philanthropic sector for at least a generation now. The one exception I can think of is The New York Review of Books. Saturday Review (d. 1986) ceased to be profitable ca. 1970. Harper's I think ran deficits from about 1976 or thereabouts if not earlier and was then taken over by the MacArthur Foundation. The Atlantic I think ceased to be commercially viable about 20 years ago if not earlier. The New Republic and National Review were never not on someone's patronage. NR likely has a more diversified run of donors than The New Republic ever did. TNR's deficits were financed by a single patron from 1914 to 2001.
    , @Rabbi High Comma
    2016 National Review's Books:
    Subscriptions = $19.99/year * 160,000 = $3,198,400.
    Operating expenses = $4,476,133 (-$1,277,733 in the red w/respect to subscriptions)
    Donors + subscription income = $7,755,085 in contributions (i.e $4,556,685 came from large donors)
    40.0% of NR's expenses went to salaries totaling $1,791,399

    Williamson’s a rude man and Lowry’s stewardship of National Review has been a failure (see, for example, his failure to recruit anyone more engaging than Williamson in the last 15 years, even for a per diem contributors’ slot). Now, what’s your alternative?

    1. Your list of people who know something of policy evaluation consists of Jason Richwine (who has contributed to NR) and a few people at von Mises scattered in and amongst the theorists and publicists (and cranks).

    2. Your crew of elected officials consists of … well, no one. Ron Paul had a little caucus in Congress. It had seven members, most of whom would not endorse his Presidential campaigns.

    3. Your rank and file (to judge by these forums) is chock-a-block with people distracted by stupid and vicious resentments (contra Jews, who are fancied to have the mutant superpower to trick and con everyone and dominate societies with tiny numbers; and contra blacks, the vast bulk of whom are ordinary wage-earners just getting by).

    Well, we obviously disagree so no need for us to go round and round.

    He's a scholar, and a sound one as far as I can see, and he is one of the few studying the forbidden and tough topics. I don't agree with everything he writes, but his laying bare of the facts of cognitive stratification and the collapse of community institutions in the US is something that must be addressed if we are to have any sort of recovery.

    There will be no insurrection, but it is not impossible that some sort of political action could address our social and economic problems. Such action would have to be grounded in facts such as those provided by scholars like Murray. UBI is not being pushed by the elites, at least not by any who think about how to pay for it.

    As far as his changing his position on immigration, I see it as commendable. I did the same a few years back. Not everyone is born with the "correct" political positions in place.

    It's easy being an "I got mine. Let them eat cake" Social Darwinist when you are parked at a "non-profit" 501c and paid huge for doing little more than dribbling out mind-dumps.

    From the NR IRS Form 990 (2016, online), Kevin Williamson is paid over $212,000 in total compensation for his caustic musings. Nice stash for merely gas-bagging several times a week about how it's good not to be a Deplorable.

    NR honcho and Neocon High Priest Rick Lowry is paid $300,000. His fat and happy pal Jonah Goldberg takes in over $264,000.

    Related to those numbers, Charles Murray is paid over $330,000 at AEI for recycling over and over that those living the Left Side of the Bell Curve deserve what they get.

    Every once in a while you encounter a scandal like this in the philanthropic sector. It’s not anywhere near the scale of the looting Fortune 500 CEO’s and their camarillas engage in, but it’s gross nevertheless. The man who ran FreedomWorks (a fellow named Kibbe) was paying himself a package of over $400,000 a year. The fellow who ran Catholic Answers (which employs fewer than 20 people) was paying himself a package of $250,000 a year. Once upon a time, the man who was president of Hillsdale College (which has a student body of < 2,000) was courtesy his chums on the trustees receiving just north of $1,000,000 a year and providing employment for several of his relatives. David Frum was for six years paid $100,000 a year to do flat nothing at AEI.

    The annual compensation for physicians averages about $230,000. I think what's typical for the President of an incorporated commercial enterprise is about $200,000. While Karl Keating was siphoning off $250,000 a year from the donors of Catholic Answers, the man who ran EWTN was earning $150,000 and managing 10x the staff.

    There hasn't been any QE securities purchases in 3 years. Neither did it consist of 'wealth transfer'. What it did initially was fulfill a demand for real balances, preventing a deflation of the sort which erupted after 1929 from occurring. After that, it was a means of monetary stimulus undertaken in lieu of adjusting the discount rate.

    2016 National Review’s Books:
    Subscriptions = $19.99/year * 160,000 = $3,198,400.
    Operating expenses = $4,476,133 (-$1,277,733 in the red w/respect to subscriptions)
    Donors + subscription income = $7,755,085 in contributions (i.e $4,556,685 came from large donors)

    I’ve read a little by Charles Murray and I don’t get the impression that he believes the left side is getting what it deserves in a moral sense rather than in an economic sense.
     
    Only Murray just recently came around to the idea that perhaps open immigration has put the screws to the American worker. Well duh...? And UBI is just an Elite chump change mechanism to forestall the insurrection.

    If that is an indication of the perception and insight of a Harvard graduate, then Murray again validates that related to genuine insight and wisdom, a Harvard pedigree and 2 bucks should only get you a cup of coffee.

    Well, we obviously disagree so no need for us to go round and round.

    He’s a scholar, and a sound one as far as I can see, and he is one of the few studying the forbidden and tough topics. I don’t agree with everything he writes, but his laying bare of the facts of cognitive stratification and the collapse of community institutions in the US is something that must be addressed if we are to have any sort of recovery.

    There will be no insurrection, but it is not impossible that some sort of political action could address our social and economic problems. Such action would have to be grounded in facts such as those provided by scholars like Murray. UBI is not being pushed by the elites, at least not by any who think about how to pay for it.

    As far as his changing his position on immigration, I see it as commendable. I did the same a few years back. Not everyone is born with the “correct” political positions in place.

Inflamed by the word “Nazi” and the whole tenor of the discussion, Buckley snapped back: “Now listen, you queer,” he said, “stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I�ll sock you in you goddamn face and you�ll stay plastered.”

    Pretty much every magazine which trafficks in opinion, book reviews, and discussion of public affairs and literature generally has been a part of the philanthropic sector for at least a generation now. The one exception I can think of is The New York Review of Books. Saturday Review (d. 1986) ceased to be profitable ca. 1970. Harper's I think ran deficits from about 1976 or thereabouts if not earlier and was then taken over by the MacArthur Foundation. The Atlantic I think ceased to be commercially viable about 20 years ago if not earlier. The New Republic and National Review were never not on someone's patronage. NR likely has a more diversified run of donors than The New Republic ever did. TNR's deficits were financed by a single patron from 1914 to 2001.

After hearing a little about his background, Nick explains how the Reagan Battalion, Ben Shapiro, and others have – unsuccessfully – tried to destroy him. This leads to a broad discussion on all that is wrong with the conservative movement, including its ahistorical understanding of America and peculiar aversion to “identity politics.” The show covers much more, including Marxist indoctrination in universities, the beliefs of the founding fathers, and the future of right-wing politics in America.


    Even more recently, they are going after Right Side Broadcasting Network host Nicholas Fuentes ; they’ve attempted to “dox, shame, bully, purge, and get him fired” according to GotNews.

    Well, yesterday evening one clever YouTuber claims to have been contacted by a low-level Reagan Battalion member who has verified the ringleader of the #NeverTrumper group as Benny Polatseck.

    This is highlighted by experts, some of whom believe that around 50% of Hassidic boys in Brooklyn are sexually abused.

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.

But I could be wrong, and the kid truly has a brain tumor.

    I have to confess, that I feel kind of bad and sorry for Mr. Polatseck, if this story is indeed true and not a hoax/troll, since he himself was probably molested or sexually abused as child by members of his own community, and this is likely why he is into this type of thing now. It is not all nature, in my opinion, but also to a large degree nurture which causes a sexual attraction to minors, etc., but as long as this epidemic of sexual abuse in the Hassidic community and their high cousin marriage rates are ignored and not confronted this vicious cycle of abuse and illegal/insane activity/behavior, unfortunately, will likely continue.

    Messing with and attacking the Alt Right and its friends and allies is highly risky and can come at a high price, since the Alt Right has many tech-savvy autists in its ranks, a phenomenon known as ``weaponized autism'', because they will skillfully, digitally retaliate and defend themselves and their friends and allies:

    The Alt-Right and Antifa Are Waging a New Kind of Internet Warfare


    The tactics involved aren't exactly neutral—they favor actors skilled at processing and manipulating high volumes of information—but they are promiscuous. What works against an anti-Trump art installation can be used by ISIS, antifa, or the alt-right, or turned against any of these groups. Similar systems can even be implemented to coordinate volunteers in highly effective disaster relief efforts.

    Probably the most famous recent example of this method in action involves Eric Clanton, the former college professor charged with assaulting three people with a metal bike-lock during a Berkeley free speech rally in April. Clanton appears to have been first identified as the alleged assailant on 4Chan, despite his face being completely covered in the only footage of the attacks. 4Chan users identified him by isolating unique non-facial visual characteristics and then going frame by frame through imagery from the event, hunting for matches.

    There hasn't been any QE securities purchases in 3 years. Neither did it consist of 'wealth transfer'. What it did initially was fulfill a demand for real balances, preventing a deflation of the sort which erupted after 1929 from occurring. After that, it was a means of monetary stimulus undertaken in lieu of adjusting the discount rate.

    He also loved National Review, a byproduct in part of his love for its founder. Tom Bolan was involved, intimately, with Bill Buckley and NR from the magazine’s earliest days (and two of his sons, Billy and the late Sean, worked here at one time or another).

    The Order of Malta is more than nine centuries old, but that doesn’t mean it can’t try something new. Last Saturday at the Metropolitan Club, the organization, whose mission is to serve “the poor and the sick,” held its first White Cross Ball in New York, where it has some 150 knights and dames.

    With premium tickets going for up to $2,000, the ball had sold out its 350 seats. A string duo played for the crowd, which included not just knights but lawyers, real estate agents, former debutantes, restaurateurs and a pair of robed priests from the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine, who had come in from Long Island.

    But we shouldn’t ignore the topic. The CIA is the best known of the 17 agencies that comprise the American intelligence community. It has earned itself nicknames like “Catholic Intelligence Agency” and “Catholics In Action”. It’s worth exploring why.

    No official statistics exist on Catholics in the CIA or any other American intelligence agency. But one interesting clue is the relatively high number of Catholics who have served as director of the agency.
    [...]
    Some of the most influential directors in CIA history have been Catholic – men such as Walter Bedell Smith, John McCone, William Colby and William Casey. They were not just casual Catholics. They were devout Mass-goers – in many cases, members of groups like the Knights of Malta. The conspiracy theorists usually start there, with nefarious plots about the Vatican steering world affairs. Of course, they never ask why an all-powerful Vatican can’t engineer more Catholic presidents.

    The Catholic connection/link in regards to/with Fascism is very important to keep in mind.

    The simple fact, that Trump is Protestant, makes it highly unlikely, that he has fascist tendencies/leanings, since the great majority of fascist dictatorships were Catholic, with a few exceptions
    [...]
    The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c. 1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi, Naczi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, German form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean “a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person.” Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in World War I Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary.

    Wm. F Buckley And The Cuckservatives – Narcissistic Personality Disorders?

    Just as the gangsters in The Godfather reassured each other that their bloody clashes were just business, not personal, I`d say that my disagreement with Buckley was fundamentally political, although I do consider his character to have been among the most contemptible I have encountered in public life. However, in Buckley`s case, the political was personal and vice versa.

    So wrote Peter Brimelow in William F. Buckley, Jr., RIP—Sort Of on February 28, 2008 the day after Buckley’s death. Over subsequent years VDARE.com has received much praise for this obituary, widely regarded as the definitive anti-Buckley statement.

But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets.

    Now Mr. Kelly has thinned out his package of printouts so much that Mr. Trump plaintively asked a friend recently where The Daily Caller and Breitbart were.

    Your rant is a bit confused and confusing, but if I understood it correctly, you seem to be one of those Europeans who entertains the bizarre notion that the EU is some sort of 'counterweight' to the US Govt. And you, like so many of those pitiable individuals commenting over at The Guardian's BTL, are probably forever scratching your head and wondering why the EU then never seems to 'stand up' to Washington on any issue of substance.

    The reason why is very simple: Washington basically already controls the EU anyway. How? Well, Germany directly controls the EU, and the US controls Germany, so the US, therefore, indirectly controls the EU. And then, of course, you have NATO, the IMF, the Open Society Institute, the Trilateral Commission, and all the rest of our globalist alphabet-soup organizations. Europe has not been sovereign in any meaningful way since 1945 ... or did you think that Obama butting his head into the Brexit debate last year and begging for a 'remain' vote was all some elaborate exercise in reverse psychology? (And by the way, did that offend your sovereignty sensibilities? And if not, why not? Technically speaking, it shouldn't be any of Obama's business what Britain does, or Scotland, etc. Yet I don't remember hearing any of the Remainers complaining about this.)


    That’s exactly the same “anti-sovereignty” position that Putin is adopting towards Ukraine with his quaint “spheres of influence” theory.
     
    I hate to inform you, but there's nothing at all "quaint" about spheres of influence. As I just explained, pretty much all of Europe is part of Washington's sphere of influence, along with Japan, S. Korea, and much of Latin America. All in all, I'd say Washington's sphere of influence dwarfs those of Russia and China put together.

    What sovereignty do we have if Americans are entitled to dictate to us how we are to exercise our sovereignty and manipulate, and maybe even rig, our elections and referenda?
     
    Even if that were true, why would it matter? The EU has long been in the habit of disregarding your national referenda anyway! Just think of the Lisbon Treaty referendum in Ireland, or the recent Dutch referendum on Ukrainian visa-free travel.

    That’s exactly the same “anti-sovereignty” position that Putin is adopting towards Ukraine with his quaint “spheres of influence” theory.
     
    Putin has competition there, with the US State Dept. helping to overthrow the previous government. Imagine if, say, the Russians had done that in Canada or Mexico. Do you really think the US Govt. would have sat back and done absolutely nothing?

    Indeed, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the very same people who are financing anti-immigrant and anti-EU political parties in Europe are also financing the flood of refugees being used to justify those parties’ ideology!
     
    The logic's pretty convoluted here, but I suppose that if you really believed all that, you would be working to reduce and control immigration, so as to prevent the rise of the anti-immigrant parties. Likewise, if you really wanted to weaken the anti-EU parties, you would be working to make the EU a more democratic organization, rather than one which routinely bankrupts its own member-states, overrides their national referenda, and flagrantly disregards its own treaties and bylaws (as occurred, for example, during the 'refugee' fracas, when Merkel simply ignored the Dublin Treaty on immigration, which Hungary was trying to uphold).

    Be that as it may, Michael, we in the alt-Right are not your real enemies. Even if we had any real control over Washington's policies -- and we certainly don't -- we really wouldn't care much at all about how Europe ruled (or misruled) itself. No, your real enemies dwell in Brussels, Washington, and New York; not here at Unz.com. We're just a bunch of commenters who happen to think your opinions are silly and ill-informed. But unlike the PC-mongers who lord it over us, we don't question your God-given right to have your own opinions.

    The reason why is very simple: Washington basically already controls the EU anyway. How? Well, Germany directly controls the EU, and the US controls Germany, so the US, therefore, indirectly controls the EU.

    I suspect that National Review is largely supported and funded by the donations of wealthy Knights of Malta and their business and social networks, etc.

    He also loved National Review, a byproduct in part of his love for its founder. Tom Bolan was involved, intimately, with Bill Buckley and NR from the magazine’s earliest days (and two of his sons, Billy and the late Sean, worked here at one time or another).
    [...]
    A Knight of Malta since 1966, he received numerous awards in recognition of his service to the nation and the Catholic Church.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/447613/thomas-bolan-national-review-obituary

    The Order of Malta is more than nine centuries old, but that doesn’t mean it can’t try something new. Last Saturday at the Metropolitan Club, the organization, whose mission is to serve “the poor and the sick,” held its first White Cross Ball in New York, where it has some 150 knights and dames.
    [...]
    With premium tickets going for up to $2,000, the ball had sold out its 350 seats. A string duo played for the crowd, which included not just knights but lawyers, real estate agents, former debutantes, restaurateurs and a pair of robed priests from the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine, who had come in from Long Island.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/27/fashion/order-of-malta-white-cross-ball.html

    But we shouldn’t ignore the topic. The CIA is the best known of the 17 agencies that comprise the American intelligence community. It has earned itself nicknames like “Catholic Intelligence Agency” and “Catholics In Action”. It’s worth exploring why.

    No official statistics exist on Catholics in the CIA or any other American intelligence agency. But one interesting clue is the relatively high number of Catholics who have served as director of the agency.
    [...]
    Some of the most influential directors in CIA history have been Catholic – men such as Walter Bedell Smith, John McCone, William Colby and William Casey. They were not just casual Catholics. They were devout Mass-goers – in many cases, members of groups like the Knights of Malta. The conspiracy theorists usually start there, with nefarious plots about the Vatican steering world affairs. Of course, they never ask why an all-powerful Vatican can’t engineer more Catholic presidents.

    Confronting sexual abuse in the Jewish community

    This is highlighted by experts, some of whom believe that around 50% of Hassidic boys in Brooklyn are sexually abused.

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence.

    I actually believe that Howard Greenberg’s “insanity due to inbreeding” defense was most likely sincere and accurate. I think the same could apply to this case, but instead of admitting to the high cousin marriage rates for certain Jewish groups, and the mental instabilities this causes, they went for the brain tumor defense. But I could be wrong, and the kid truly has a brain tumor.

    i would also guess that orthodox jews who observe all those tzniut laws are more inbred than other jewish groups.

    I have to confess, that I feel kind of bad and sorry for Mr. Polatseck, if this story is indeed true and not a hoax/troll, since he himself was probably molested or sexually abused as child by members of his own community, and this is likely why he is into this type of thing now. It is not all nature, in my opinion, but also to a large degree nurture which causes a sexual attraction to minors, etc., but as long as this epidemic of sexual abuse in the Hassidic community and their high cousin marriage rates are ignored and not confronted this vicious cycle of abuse and illegal/insane activity/behavior, unfortunately, will likely continue.

    Messing with and attacking the Alt Right and its friends and allies is highly risky and can come at a high price, since the Alt Right has many tech-savvy autists in its ranks, a phenomenon known as “weaponized autism”, because they will skillfully, digitally retaliate and defend themselves and their friends and allies:

    The Alt-Right and Antifa Are Waging a New Kind of Internet Warfare

    The tactics involved aren’t exactly neutral—they favor actors skilled at processing and manipulating high volumes of information—but they are promiscuous. What works against an anti-Trump art installation can be used by ISIS, antifa, or the alt-right, or turned against any of these groups. Similar systems can even be implemented to coordinate volunteers in highly effective disaster relief efforts.

    Probably the most famous recent example of this method in action involves Eric Clanton, the former college professor charged with assaulting three people with a metal bike-lock during a Berkeley free speech rally in April. Clanton appears to have been first identified as the alleged assailant on 4Chan, despite his face being completely covered in the only footage of the attacks. 4Chan users identified him by isolating unique non-facial visual characteristics and then going frame by frame through imagery from the event, hunting for matches.

    It's in the air. You can sense the utter desperation by Jews to cling to their political power, privileges and cash cows.
    The tide is turning.

    In reality, all of this IS bringing more people to 'holocau$t' Revisionism.

    And that ultimately signals the end to much of the Jewish supremacist activity which has been shielded by the '6M Jews' scam.

    "One should not ask, how this mass murder was made possible. It was technically possible, because it happened. This has to be the obligatory starting-point for any historical research regarding this topic. We would just like to remind you: There is no debate regarding the existence of the gas chambers, and there can never be one."

    - endorsed by 34 "reputable historians" and published in the French daily Le Monde on February 21, 1979
     

    The 'holocaust' storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. What sort of truth is it that denies free speech and the freedom to seek the truth? Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.

     


    We're talking about an alleged '6M Jews & 5M others' ... [b]11,000,000[/b].
    There is not a single verifiable excavated enormous mass grave with contents actually SHOWN, not just claimed, (recall the claims of 900,000 buried at Treblinka, 1,250,000 at Auschwitz, or 250,000 at Sobibor, or even yhe 35,000 alleged at Babi Yar) even though Jews claim they still exist and claim to know exactly where these alleged enormous mass graves are.
     
    The '6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers' are scientifically impossible frauds.

    I don’t see the problem with 6M Jews and 5M others. I don’t deny the numbers. They prove the Jews don’t own the Holocaust 100%. And the Holocaustvwss not the only crime the Nazis committed. We fought a major war against them before we even knew about it.

    More on Nazis, Buckley, Trump, the Alt Right, etc.

    The Catholic connection/link in regards to/with Fascism is very important to keep in mind.

    The simple fact, that Trump is Protestant, makes it highly unlikely, that he has fascist tendencies/leanings, since the great majority of fascist dictatorships were Catholic, with a few exceptions
    [...]
    The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c. 1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi, Naczi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, German form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean “a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person.” Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in World War I Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary.

    Wm. F Buckley And The Cuckservatives – Narcissistic Personality Disorders?

    Just as the gangsters in The Godfather reassured each other that their bloody clashes were just business, not personal, I`d say that my disagreement with Buckley was fundamentally political, although I do consider his character to have been among the most contemptible I have encountered in public life. However, in Buckley`s case, the political was personal and vice versa.

    So wrote Peter Brimelow in William F. Buckley, Jr., RIP—Sort Of on February 28, 2008 the day after Buckley’s death. Over subsequent years VDARE.com has received much praise for this obituary, widely regarded as the definitive anti-Buckley statement.

    http://www.vdare.com/posts/wm-f-buckley-and-the-cuckservatives-narcissistic-personality-disorders

    Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering. But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets.

    The two Protestants Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson can prevent this from happening and instead MAGA:

    Trump has many, many flaws, no doubt about it, but [...] he is Western Civilization’s best chance at survival, in my opinion

    On the macro level there is no one else I can think of, who has done more to inspire and keep Donald Trump in check than Ann Coulter

    Tucker Carlson is Trump’s last hope, in my opinion,… if he doesn’t listen to Tucker his presidency will be a failure and a huge disappointment to his most loyal supporters.

    More on Nazis, Buckley, Trump, the Alt Right, etc.

    The Catholic connection/link in regards to/with Fascism is very important to keep in mind.

    The simple fact, that Trump is Protestant, makes it highly unlikely, that he has fascist tendencies/leanings, since the great majority of fascist dictatorships were Catholic, with a few exceptions
    [...]
    The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c. 1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi, Naczi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, German form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean “a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person.” Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in World War I Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary.

    Over the last year(s), there has been an unprecedented influx and coalescing of Protestants into the broader Alt Right movement and around the presidential campaign of Donald Trump
    [...]
    Mr. Hart, in my opinion, correctly observed the Protestant nature of the Alt Right in his April 2016 article titled: Neocons Want To Destroy Alt Right, Bring Back Buckley-Style Excommunications. Too Bad. http://www.vdare.com/articles/neocons-want-to-destroy-alt-right-bring-back-buckley-style-excommunications-too-bad

    General Kelly is probably the most fascistic person in the Trump administration, at the moment, excommunicating many Trump allies from the White House, and Conservatism, Inc. loves him:

    The Vatican-Zionist alliance just got one of their own nominated for Secretary of Homeland Security. Maybe he is not as bad as Michael McCaul, but still…

    Apparently, General John Kelly is best friends with General Joseph Dunford, who is a ‘fervent Catholic,’ so I assume he is too
    [...]
    Ana Navarro seems to be happy about the appointment; via Twitter:
    Hope this is true. Gen. Kelly is a no-nonsense Marine. Served & sacrificed for our country his whole life. Hell of a lot better than Kobach!
    [...]
    Navarro’s centrist conservatism was shaped by the Miami of her youth, where Republicans mostly spoke English with accents, and anti-Castroism and fiscal conservatism were compatible with a flexible approach to social issues and immigration politics.

    Forceful Chief of Staff Grates on Trump, and the Feeling Is Mutual

    Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering.
    Mr. Kelly has his critics outside the administration, notably Mr. Stone, who has accused Mr. Kelly of keeping the president from his friends and allies.
    [...]
    The chief of staff keeps his own counsel and travels light. He brought over only a small handful of staff members from the Department of Homeland Security, and confides to an even smaller circle, which includes Leon E. Panetta [former Catholics in Action (CIA) director], for whom he served as a top aide when Mr. Panetta was defense secretary in the Obama administration.
    [...]
    Despite his crackdown on illegal immigrants and support for the Muslim travel ban in his previous job as Homeland Security secretary, Mr. Kelly has been among those calling for Mr. Trump to proceed with caution on rolling back Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

    Wm. F Buckley And The Cuckservatives – Narcissistic Personality Disorders?

    Just as the gangsters in The Godfather reassured each other that their bloody clashes were just business, not personal, I`d say that my disagreement with Buckley was fundamentally political, although I do consider his character to have been among the most contemptible I have encountered in public life. However, in Buckley`s case, the political was personal and vice versa.

    So wrote Peter Brimelow in William F. Buckley, Jr., RIP—Sort Of on February 28, 2008 the day after Buckley’s death. Over subsequent years VDARE.com has received much praise for this obituary, widely regarded as the definitive anti-Buckley statement.

    Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering. But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets.

    Now Mr. Kelly has thinned out his package of printouts so much that Mr. Trump plaintively asked a friend recently where The Daily Caller and Breitbart were.

    Williamson's a rude man and Lowry's stewardship of National Review has been a failure (see, for example, his failure to recruit anyone more engaging than Williamson in the last 15 years, even for a per diem contributors' slot). Now, what's your alternative?

    1. Your list of people who know something of policy evaluation consists of Jason Richwine (who has contributed to NR) and a few people at von Mises scattered in and amongst the theorists and publicists (and cranks).

    2. Your crew of elected officials consists of ... well, no one. Ron Paul had a little caucus in Congress. It had seven members, most of whom would not endorse his Presidential campaigns.

    3. Your rank and file (to judge by these forums) is chock-a-block with people distracted by stupid and vicious resentments (contra Jews, who are fancied to have the mutant superpower to trick and con everyone and dominate societies with tiny numbers; and contra blacks, the vast bulk of whom are ordinary wage-earners just getting by).

    Art Deco asked:

    Now, what’s your alternative [to the current National Review]?

    Well, that is pretty simple: an Executive Order from the Donald telling the CIA to stop funding these silly little girly boys.

    Sometimes decrepit old animals need to be put out of their misery. Sixty-two years is long enough.

    I have done research into this, and Mr. Polatseck seems to fit the profile:


    Confronting sexual abuse in the Jewish community

    This is highlighted by experts, some of whom believe that around 50% of Hassidic boys in Brooklyn are sexually abused.

    – http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Confronting-sexual-abuse-in-the-Jewish-community-408279

    The low-activity MAOA alleles in combination with a variant of the MC1R gene might be the key to fully understanding the potentially partially genetic underpinnings of sexual abuse/violence. Again, this is very much speculation at this point, and I could be completely wrong on this issue, of course

    I actually believe that Howard Greenberg’s “insanity due to inbreeding” defense was most likely sincere and accurate. I think the same could apply to this case, but instead of admitting to the high cousin marriage rates for certain Jewish groups, and the mental instabilities this causes, they went for the brain tumor defense. But I could be wrong, and the kid truly has a brain tumor.
    [...]
    i would also guess that orthodox jews who observe all those tzniut laws are more inbred than other jewish groups.

    A very high rate of interbreeding in most Moslem countries, too. Lower IQs, high rates of pregnancies leading to miscarriages, stillbirths and disabled babies, extreme clannishness and a general craziness.
