In the bar and restaurant business managing one’s clientele is well understood, though the tactics are seldom publicly acknowledged. For example, a restaurant targeting an upscale crowd will avoid anything that might attract Hillbillies more at home at a Cracker Barrel. No need for a “No White Trash” sign— the unwelcome customers just feel out of place and go elsewhere.

Similar methods inform today’s ideological landscape and while exclusionary tactics exist across the spectrum, let me dwell on those associated with what has been called Conservative Inc. Though Conservative Inc. offers a variety of perspectives, they are all exceedingly careful if not downright cowardly regarding certain topics since the slightest misstep can produce excommunication from the world of respectability. Indeed, when it comes to being ever so sensitive about giving offense to “protected” groups such as gays and Hispanics, Conservative Inc. outshines the most rabid PC college snowflakes. Recall how Heritage immediately fired Jason Richwine when it discovered that his Harvard dissertation acknowledged possible problems if the US were to import millions of low-IQ immigrants.

Foremost in the off-limits agenda are frank discussions involving topics of race, immigration, sexual preferences and, most critically, anything touching on biological differences across groups. In the world of reputable conservatism, it is unthinkable to even hint, for example, that nation building, let alone democracy, in the Third World is impossible since those countries have a set-in stone average IQ of 85 (or less) implying that their populations are too inept for anything beyond a brutal dictatorship.

It is not that these taboo topics never arise within the boundaries of respectable conservatives but when they do, discussions are ever so delicate and overflow with euphemisms. If, for example, the subject of black crime creeps into a forum, it is safely sanitized by explaining it in terms of the presence of Democratic mayors, how liberals hate the police and provide too lenient judges, why excessive economic regulation undermines urban job creation, the impact of fatherless families, a dysfunctional culture, horrific teacher union-dominated schools and similar inoffensive explanations miles removed from fingering incorrigible, unemployable, crime-prone underclass blacks.

How can Conservative Inc., like a restaurant catering to a tony clientele, shield itself from unwashed heretics inclined to raise taboo topics? The answer to this question begins with the character of the undomesticated: with few exceptions, those prone to raise embarrassing issues are typically working or lower middle-class whites.

This reality acknowledged, the easiest way to exclude the ideological hoi polloi is to make it expensive to partake of respectable conservatism. If a conference is to be held, price it beyond the reach of the unwashed. Hefty registration fees, banquet charges and hotel rates and strict dress codes will do the trick and just to make sure, hold such get-togethers at upscale resorts or cruise ships. And if pricing fails to exclude the unsocialized, insist that all speeches have an “academic,” boring flavor, a strategy that has the twin advantage of keeping away both the riff-raff and also anti-hate organization such as the Southern Poverty Law Center.

This exclusionary tactic was brought home to me years back at a conference of a reputable conservative organization partial to upmarket hotels and costly banquets. I suggested to the group’s Executive Secretary that they could attract a larger (and younger) crowd if they offered a cheaper hotel option and a roommate service. Cold silence.

Contrast all this with a certain organization that caters to “race realists.” Years ago its meetings were held in nondescript airport hotels with reasonable rates. Alas, after several of these chains refused to host this controversial “racist” group, the annual conference was re-located to a state park in Burns, Tennessee. Now, happily, thanks to rock bottom hotel rates plus inexpensive all-you-can-eat buffets (baked ham, fried chicken), attendance soared (the most recent conference totally sold out). Its mid-America location allows groups of attendees to share driving, a major saving over flying.

Here attendees (many of whom were good-old boys and gals) could get their fill of ideological “red meat” on taboo topics, notably white identity and the dangers of Islam. Participants comfortably expressed heretical views and traded Arab bestiality jokes without fearing the PC police.

It is no wonder, then, that the great mass of ordinary Americans who despise the Left’s agenda and suffer its social engineering are not drawn to Conservative Inc. Its exclusionary elitism is hardly hidden and hoi polloi who did manage to show up would feel lost. All the high-toned conferences and policy position papers are irrelevant to those condemned as racists for not wanting their local police departments forcibly diversified.

How does Donald Trump fit into this landscape? He is a gate crasher whose popularity among down-market whites explains why Conservative Inc simultaneously loathes him. Some of this attraction is just in-your-face defiance of Conservative Inc’s feminized social etiquette, for example, wearing a bright red baseball cap, an article of clothing never seen at an AEI or Heritage gathering. And no “respectable” conservative would daily dare to parade around a stunning, statuesque trophy wife who once posed naked. You could almost smell his fear-generating testosterone, an odor rarely found in the conservative establishment but common at gun shows. Indeed, in a political culture where office-seekers compete to show compassion for the less fortunate (“I feel your pain”), Trump instead projects the image of a man with cojones. Easy to picture Trump, and only Trump, dialing up Kim Jong Un and saying, “Kim, I know you have your finger on the nuclear button, but before you press it, just ask yourself. ‘Is this your lucky day?’”

ORDER IT NOW

But most of all, both as a candidate and President he rejects the dishonesty (“bullshit,” to be technical) that is the ticket of admission to the respectable Right by refusing to embrace its bold-faced lies. He never apologizes and thus cannot be intimidated by the race hustlers, the social justice warriors and the neo-pagan environmentalist. He puts on a manly show that has not been seen in decades and so packs the house in fly-over country.

On immigration, for example, there was no dishonest blather about how diversity makes us strong, how America is a nation of immigrants, how hard-working Hispanics embrace strong family values and all the rest favored by anxious-to-please mainstream conservatives. Hard to think of anything less inclusive than “I will build the wall” or calling for extreme vetting to exclude Muslim terrorists. He also navigates race-related issues without gratuitously quoting Martin Luther King, calling teenage predators “at-risk youngsters” needing jobs, or blaming the legacy of slavery as an excuse for poverty. His silence speaks loudly to those sick of apologetic leaders, for example, not going into spasms of outrage over monuments to Robert E. Lee.

His fans instinctively sense that despite his great wealth and custom-made suits he would never fit into a Georgetown dinner of “reputable” conservatives who preferred the domesticated low-energy Jeb or little Mario. Moreover, unlike those writers and pundits enrolled in Conservative Inc. whose livelihoods depend on the fickle grace of a few super-wealthy benefactors, he is independent financially, a virtue that may well inspire jealousy among those who earn their bread toeing the party line. There is no plug to pull if he wanders off the reservation and this makes him “dangerous.” In short, to return to our parallel with restaurants, the Donald is the classic guest who arrives uninvited to the dinner party of pompous fools, a loudmouth who refuses the host’s Boudin Noir Aux Pommes (blood sausage and apples) and instead demands a well-done T-bone steak, fries and a diet Coke, tells off-color jokes about black transvestites and flaunts decorum. Naturally all the other guests are horrified but the long-suffering kitchen help love it and privately cheer him on.

    Jeffrey Tucker does wear a bowtie but is he really part of Conservative, Inc.? I have heard that he has become a statist (in addition to loving the free market?) and a SJW in some respects so I guess he is no longer really a paleolibertarian.

  2. I wish President Trump would make Conservatism, Inc. mad with his policies and not his style. His policies (tax cuts!! Wars for Israel!!) don’t seem all that different from what Conservatism Inc. advocates. I wonder sometimes if there isn’t a “Secret Sanhedrin” of Conservatism, Inc. that respects Donald Trump all the more because he plays to the rubes but implements what they want. As they say on Vulcan: “Only Nixon can go to China.”

    Well, yeah. He talked a good talk in the campaign.
    Remember? Nobody else was talking about immigration, the MidEast wars and the economy, much more with a politically incorrect tone and attitude.
    Now? We got three generals running the show. Iran looks like the next MidEast boondoggle – America first, not AIPAC – and a DACA deal is in the offing. Tax “reform”, but not spending reform. . . .
    If you want to talk the talk, you got to walk the walk.
    Color us unimpressed.

    True, anybody but Shrillary. Then again, that’s not saying much.
    He’ll be a mixed blessing, pragmatic deal maker that he is.

    And opportunist. Nobody’s talking about any connections between crime, construction and casinos. Natasha and Boris rather are the heavies/distractions of the moment. Meanwhile the warfare/welfare state descent continues as usual, only with a little more flag waving than under Geo. W. Obama. But the flags, like the MAGA hats are Hecho in Chino.

  7. Weissberg never fails to ignore the elephant in the conservative living room: Israel.

    Like Derb, he complains about the cant, the dishonesty, and the conformity among our political leaders and chattering class involving race and gender, but he strategically ignores the background and loyalties of so many of the architects and enablers of ‘political correctness’.

    Yes, political correctness has many losers. We agree on that. They are primarily, white males. But there are many winners, too. And the beneficiaries are not just blacks, Hispanics and women.

    It must be acknowledged that Jews benefit in countless ways via political correctness. There are now strict taboos, sacred monuments and entire academic specialities that ‘study’ Jewish victimhood and ‘anti-Semitism’. This is a relatively new phenomena in America. And it came to us via the political correctness movement that began during and after the 60′s. Has Weissberg not noticed?

    But the boogeyman of ‘white racism’ empowers not only underperforming blacks and other protected minorities’, but the world’s most famous victim group.

    PC stratagems include incessant warnings, lectures and taboos targeting white identity, ‘white patriarchy’, ‘white racists’ and white ‘supremacism’ that allegedly animates ‘prejudiced’ whites into wanting to preserve their race and their civilization. Pretty silly, huh?

    Wanting to preserve one’s race and culture. Imagine that.

    At the same time, there’s a lot of top-down lecturing going on in PC-land that concerns ‘anti-Semitism’, ‘The Holocaust’ and of course ‘Islamo-fascism’. And don’t forget precious Israel. Oh the horror!

    Who benefits from all these contrivances?

    You can bet that the neocon Good Guys find a way to get all the bad (white) fascists and ‘Islamo-fascists’ under control. Censorship is one way. Bombs another.

    God save democracy! Protect freedom! God save nuclear Israel!

    Weissberg is surely sincere in many of his writings. But he is also shedding crocodile tears over the relatively minor difficulties he faces as a well-paid college professor who derives a lot of protection via his religious identity and special history. But what if we refuse to take all this seriously?

    Are we allowed to?

    Indeed, Weissberg is an influential and affluent member of the world’s most ‘endangered’ victim group. This surely counts for something. Maybe he should take a look at this.

    Weissberg may complain about America’s near-open Borders policies, but what elite and shadowy community has played a central role in the the slow-motion displacement of Euro-Americans over the past half century?

    Another question I have is this: why should Americans shed blood to protect Israel’s security (via the destruction of Iraq, Libya, Syria and coming soon, Iran) while we ignore our own borders and our own racial composition?

    Care to speculate, Mr. Weissberg?

    In a similar vein, hasn’t Hollywood and the dominant ((media)) played a central role shaping popular attitudes concerning so many of the dangerous changes and glaring double standards that you, Mr. Weissberg, decry?

    So why not go after them?

    All of them.

    It’s time to take the next step. Please examine (and name) the biggest donors, Mr. Weissberg, as well as the moguls and TV executives who have empowered the ‘political correctness’ movement that now undermines our Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Association. These are our adversaries.

    Will you join us?

    In case you haven’t figured it out, the disloyal opposition would be a ‘Who’s Who’ of Hollywood, Wall Street, K Street, and of higher education. On top of that, alt-right dissenters are generally banned, defamed, attacked or exiled.

    And speaking of Hollywood, let’s not forget Tinseltown’s full-0n glamorization of black/white miscegenation in film, broadcasting, and even TV commercials. Interesting, no?

    Is this sudden image transition a response to America’s viewing and lifestyle preferences?–or is it a top-down propaganda campaign targeting white America?

    And since you love The Donald so much, Mr. Weissberg, please review Trump’s campaign promises (no ‘unnecessary’ Mideast wars, ‘peace’ with Russia) against his pro-Zionist, neo-con hawkishness that now exemplifies his presidency. It is nothing less than a head-spinning reversal.

    I’ve never been to democratic Israel, but I bet film and TV moguls there don’t produce a lot of ‘entertainment’ that glorifies Arab/Jewish romance or that makes references to ‘Judeo-Christian’ ties. Am I wrong about this?

    And it’s interesting that modern ‘secular’ America–a nation where Jews have achieved a pinnacle of wealth and influence–now embraces the imaginary doctrine that all the world’s people are ‘equal’ and therefore interchangeable. This is a modern ruse. And only white Americans are instructed to digest this kosher canard.

    What are we to make of these extraordinary double standards?

    Should (non-Jewish) whites be allowed to coalesce around their European-derived identity in a fashion similar to what’s now enjoyed by ‘minorities’ such as Chinese, Hispanics, blacks gays, women and Jews?–even it means ‘discriminating’ against members of those privileged groups?

    There’s a lot to this story. There are many big questions. Yet Weissberg keeps missing them. Why?

    Is Weissberg himself a ‘wimp’?–or is he secretly working for the opposition?

    Trump rejects the bold-faced lies of Conservative Inc. in favor of his own, unique bold-faced lies. And he cucked on David Duke, “white supremacists” and Charlottesville. And now he’s indistinguishable from John McCain with his neocon belligerence.

    I’m pleased to see how many commenters are criticizing Mr. Weissberg for his focus on easy targets and his painfully naïve, remaining enthusiasm for President Trump. The election was held over a year ago, and it is now pretty clear that the man may not even have understood, much less believed, those speeches written by Mr. Bannon and Mr. Miller. It’s one thing to have cast a vote (I didn’t), but to at this point laud President Trump for merely annoying one’s foes is gullible or misleading.

    I hope that the author will find the time and muster the courage to address the critical commentary, as do the better writers published here. But I expect that he’ll not, and revert in his next column to the whack-a-black stuff that goes over better with some of the readership.

    Those populations are not that inept. A non-brutal dictatorship will do the job. In fact, that is what works best for them, because its keeps their monsters at bay and limits their exploitation at the hands of white or Asian or Jewish exploiters.

    I have less than zero interest in eating disgusting feral blood sausage. Give me that T-Bone but not well done. The rap on Trump is that he likes his steak so well done that they “rock on the plate” and that is a true quote from his former butler.

    “It would rock on the plate, it was so well done,” Anthony Senecal, Trump’s long-time butler, told The New York Times.

    I am still a Trump supporter and pulling for the best. Of course he has to Tweet a lot to be heard above all the static n bullshyte emanating from Washington DC. His tweets mean the mass media cannot not put him on ignore like they wish they could. Empty suit Obama could play Mr Cool because the liberal media fawned over him and widely distributed every dumb, cliched, buzzword laden utterance.

    I will agree with Mr Weissberg that our so called intelligentsia, our gelded superiors, are appalled by The Donald’s style. I suppose this get some laughs at their cocktail parties and soirees. If you wise up and read Trump (and his style) poetically he makes more sense than if you read him literally. Our intelligentsia is incapable of this so they go all atwitter in real and/or feigned outrage.

    You cannot freeze to death or starve as winter rations run down to nothing. Life just rumbles on, on a low level. The traditional base crops in Africa were various tubers and bananas-plantains. I know first hand that it is difficult to f up growing them. In the distant past I have grown bananas and plantains and have seen friends raising cassava. Bananas grow like weeds in the tropics and hard green ones can be cooked and eaten too. Cassava is just one of many tropical tubers. And now many Africans grow corn aka maize though if they nixtamalized it, it would be better for their health. (Niacin)

    I wish President Trump would make Conservatism, Inc. mad with his policies and not his style.

    Absolutely spot on. The thumb Trump occasionally sticks into the eye of Conservative Inc. is all for show. E.g. NFL players kneeling or Civil War statues. Akin to Obama playing big at getting men wearing dresses into ladies locker rooms. Both Obama and Trump live by Chickensh*t cheap grace diversions for the base.

    Where the rubber meets the road Trump is Hyper-Crony:

    An advisory cabal of war-monger Generals and Neocons. Resulting in even more of the obsolete and unaffordable America as Global Cop model with its hyper-expensive marauding War Machine. All billed to the deluded taxpayers played for chumps. (To say nothing of the the pathetic, obsequious sanctification of the military amplified by the Pentagon/MIC/MSM propaganda machine.)

    A domestic advisory cabal saturated by Goldman Sachs parasites who actively game the system to ensure the Crony Banksters always get theirs.

    Next to no meaningful workplace enforcement of immigration law. The Big Ag, Big Food Processing, Big Construction, Big Fast Food Restaurant, “Big XYZ”, Cronies haven’t been touched by enforcement raids. Big Tech has not been touched with audits to uncover H-1B discrimmination of American Citizen technologists. With aggressive workplace enforcement accompanied by huge fines and jail time for employer-violators there would little need for the “Wall” and the program would pay for itself. Only Trump is too cronied-up to implement the obvious.

    Zotzing out Obamacare and replacing it with…nothing. Because Trump’s base will no longer be penalized for not buying the unaffordable Obamacare does nothing to get them access to care when they need it. Health care is continuing to implode while Trump tweets bullsh*t diversions.

    Trump is a weasel sell-out who gets by with the phony schtick that mesmerizes even Robert Weissberg. The fact that Weissberg falls for it suggests he is so clueless, his future submissions to the Unz Review should be rejected for that reason alone.

    Yes, so do I. My take is that Conservative Inc. is the public face of the neocons. It would be more accurate to describe it as Neocon Inc.

  39. This is a general problem that conservatives have. I as a socialist have wodered where the salonfähig conservative agenda has gone. As it is now mos European conservatives has swung even further right almost and in some cases to the Fascist end of spectre. Fascism is not (yet) and hopefully ever salonfähig. The populism that the conservatives enjoy in Europe is clearly founded on xenophobia, a mass influx of refugees from the war in Syria. The refugees while I regard them as legitimate has been infected by swathes of migrant workers of Africa, which are not legitimate. Let them rot in paver camps. That is a socialist dogma, but it is my opinion, none the less, EU cant solve Africa’s problems. It has done what it can with trade ect. but Africas corrupt rulers skim it almost universally.
    The American conservative died the moment people realised he was just as bought as the Democratic opponent, Wall Street , the MIC, al of them with highly paid lobbyists. American democracy is dead, it is a kabuki theater, that is why we got Trump, the most incapable ever president, but maybe also the only not directly bought by others. But Trump forgot the idiom “Give the Caesar , what is due…” whether he means well or not, he will heed the will of the deep state.

    I think Jeff Tucker is a Libertarian who has, over the last few years, gotten a little caught up in the weeds of political correctness because of the benefits this brings to his orientation.

    However, to use his picture as a poster child of Conservatism Inc. is (to say the least) a bit of a stretch. I think the author took liberties here because the image fits the narrative; but if he’s willing to do that, why not use an image such as this one ?

    Still, I found the article somewhat interesting.

    Conservative pundits are fighting over ideas, not territory, which only works when everybody’s playing the same game.

    This guy, for example, doesn’t lack for ideas nor, for that matter, do his opponents. What he needs is a strongman who despises his enemies:

    What’s a guy like Rod Dreher or Ross Douthat going to do–admit there are operational limits to their precious precious principles, on which they’ve built their careers and fed their families, or raise the black flag? You don’t have to answer that.

    It’s a pretty sweet gig, being a cloistered pundit or legislator in a carefully-carved district, or even just a typical suburbanite. You can wring your hands and tut-tut as the culture is deconstructed, systemic errors pile up in the economy, and the only people you meet outside your social station are the people doing the work at Jiffy-Lube or Starbucks. “Diversity” means your Chinese Ph.D. neighbor.

    Tucker looks and acts like an effete. And there have been rumors for more than a decade that he fought hard to slowly expel defenders of the Confederacy from anything to do with anything connected to Mises or Rothbard, though Rothbard tried to build a coalition that featured unreconstructed southerners and anti-Vatican II Catholics, alongside agnostic Jewish Libertarians.

    Tucker may be the Bill Buckley of paleolibertarianism.

    We need to have the state of Israel because we need a place for the Jews. I do not want Jews in the West. That is the first thing that needs to be done. Trump was correct in naming Jerusalem the capital of Israel. I went to Israel for Christmas and as long as Christians have access to the holy sites, that is most important to me. Also, Islam is a Christian heresy so it has no claim to Jerusalem. The “Palestinians” in the area are mostly Muslim and of low IQ (average Palestinian IQ is 85). They are of the mixed black/Arab mixtures common in the North Africa and parts of the Middle East. They can easily be assimilated into other countries. I do want separate countries for the Middle East Christians. Also, we need to set permanent boundaries for Israel.

    “Weissberg never fails to ignore the elephant in the conservative living room: Israel.
    Like Derb, he complains about the cant, the dishonesty, and the conformity among our political leaders and chattering class involving race and gender, but he strategically ignores the background and loyalties of so many of the architects and enablers of ‘political correctness’.”

    First, Derbyshire is race mixing cuck who is afraid of Jews. Here is what he said: “Yes, indeed I was, and am, “afraid of offending Jews.” http://jewcy.com/post/wrestling_with_derbyshires_law Second, he married a Chinese woman and has Chinese offspring. He has explicitly stated whites are inferior to Asians. https://www.unz.com/jderbyshire/of-course-harvard-discriminates-against-asians/ His scribblings on race, gender, Jews are irrelevant given his background.

    Second, of course Weissberg will not mention Israel. He doesn’t have to and we know where his loyalties are. I have to give him credit though because he will always do what is best for his miscegenated, meshuggah melange of a tribe. But who gives this “tribe” their “power?” The RCC, Zioevangizers and gentile Freemasons.

    I went to Israel for Christmas. I had a very nice time. Most Israeli Jews are secular. If you are a Christian and need to help to get around to holy sites, they do help you. They don’t think in Judeo-Christian terms. There are Israeli Christians and they can practice their religion. I support Israel because we need a place for Jews. They should not be in the West. As long as Christian holy sites are protected then all will be fine.

    You write about “the imaginary doctrine that all the world’s people are ‘equal’ and therefore interchangeable.” These evil concepts are the basis of the “universal church” – RCC and Zioevangizers and “universal brotherhood,” Freemasons. If you are RCC and accept black/Asian priests-popes, you are the problem. Zioevangizer believe today’s Jews are the chosen. They are not. Freemasons of course are internationalists. People are not equal. We are human, i.e., a head, 2 arms, 2 legs, etc. But that’s it. The most important measure of a person is IQ. Caucasians are first, then Asians, blacks are last. The West is Caucasian/European. Blacks/Asians cannot be a part of the West. But the RCC being a universal church is busy destroying Western Europe by forcing European nations to accept black/Asian/Muslim invaders. We need to start “discriminating” against black/Asians/Jews. The best way is to change this is to focus first on IQ. Asians/blacks will be automatically eliminated. Jews have a country. Get rid of dual citizenship in the USA and that will be the fastest way to deal with Jews. Of course, the RCC and Zioevangizers will get mad, but they can be easily dealt with.

He won because first, he spoke blue collar American — short pithy sentences, and plain Anglo-Saxon words, and second, he spoke for blue collar America: off-shoring of jobs, import of cheap labor competition, crap inner city schools, inner city lawlessness, callous disregard for the needs of America’s military veterans. Without the message, Trump could have flaunted, or even flouted, decorum unrelentingly, and he would nevertheless have gone down to overwhelming defeat.

    In practically every instance where blacks are in great numbers, control the governments of cities, counties, regions, states, countries, & continents we see:

    massive murder rates

    The countries in the world with the worst murder problem are to be found in Central America, which has few blacks. You also have tremendous variation in subregions. The range of observed rates in the black Caribbean is 18 to 1. Similar ranges are observed from one country in Tropical Africa to another.

    degraded property

    This is the 19th ward in Rochester. It’s 70% black.

    massive disease, especially STDs

    The life expectancy of black Americans is just shy of 75 years at birth, about what it was for the generic American in 1985. Same deal in Barbados. It’s higher in Martinique. Life expectancy for black and mulatto Brazilians is about 73 years, a level not reached in the U.S. until about 1975.

    massive drug abuse

    The prevalence of street drugs among Orientals and East Indians in the U.S. is low, with about 3% using at any one time. For the other racial categories, it doesn’t differ much: shy of 9% among hispanics, just north of 12% among aboriginals, with whites and blacks in between. Observed difference between black and white is about 10%.

    https://www.samhsa.gov/data/sites/default/files/NSDUHresultsPDFWHTML2013/Web/NSDUHresults2013.pdf

    general filth, squalor

    massive, unable to support their own children, birthrates

    The total fertility rate for black Americans is 2.1 children per women per lifetime, i.e. replacement level. That in Barbados is 1.8; Brazil’s is 1.78; South Africa’s is 2.34.

    massive youth pregnancies rates

    The birth rate in this country for women between their 15th and 20th birthrates is 16 per 1,000 for whites and 32 per 1,000 for blacks. Over a quarter century, it declined by 62% among whites and 73% among blacks.

    massive school dropout rates

    About 94% of all whites obtain a high school diploma or equivalency. About 88% of blacks do so. Among hispanics, about 69% do so.

    incredibly low IQs & test scores

    If I’m to take Richard Lynn seriously, the median IQ among black Americans approximates that of India and the Arab world.

    violence as a way of life

    Violence among blacks is associated with a modest minority of the male youth population, just as it is elsewhere.

    fathers nowhere to be found

    About 1/3 of black children live with their fathers. (About 60% did in 1960).

    But here’s a better take on Trump, from Bill Bonner”

    What “The Donald” understood better than the professional politicians was that democratic politics is basically a form of entertainment.

    It’s a sordid part of show biz – all hocus pocus… suspension of disbelief… and performance art – closer to nude mud wrestling than The Crown.

    The press still doesn’t get it.

    In an article that appeared in The Washington Post on Tuesday, reporters had tallied 1,950 “false or misleading claims” the president made last year.

    We were surprised; we thought he had made more than that. And why not?

    No one expects a standup comic to tell the truth. No one checks Beyoncé’s lyrics for factual errors. And who worries about accuracy while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

    Another article tells us that Trump is “mocked on social media for bragging” about his nuclear button.

    Of course, that’s not what President Eisenhower would have done. But these are not Ike voters. And this is not Ike’s Old Republic.

    Today’s voters have lost faith in the system, with its solemn deceit and its counterfeit dignity. And they’re happy to hear someone speaking in a language they understand – the lowbrow media patois of Howard Stern, the Kardashians, and “The Big Dog” himself, WWE champ Roman Reigns.

    Trump, a lifelong celebrity, sensed that the role of president has little to do with geopolitical facts, mastery of the federal budget, or knowledge of history.

    It’s more like a reality TV show or a WWE wrestling match – with put downs… posturing… and fake fights.

    In other words, it was right up his alley.

    Far from it. It has enabled Trump to remain connected with something like 20 million people, or a large proportion of those who voted Republican in the Presidential election. Of those Trump twitter followers, many, in fact the great majority, will never read a several thousand word report on the President’s thinking as it might appear in the NY Times, the Atlantic, etc. but they get it direct, daily, without obfuscation, and at minimal cost in time and effort via the President’s Twitter statements. Moreover, those statements are not, as brainwashed liberals tell one another, the ravings of a madman, but carefully crafted messages designed for clarity, and impact, and reviewed before publication by a raft of lawyers checking for unintended implications.

    Joined to him [Trump] at the hip because they [Trump supporters] dare not admit they made a terrible blunder at the polls.

    That would include [among Trump's deluded followers] Scot Adams who predicted Trump’s election months before any other prominent person believed Trump could possibly win. And, as Adams points out in a recent column, Trump is doing something both original and apparently effective in propelling N. Korea toward negotiations on its nuclear program, suggesting that Trump’s supporters are not as dumb as you suppose.

    Which shows [i.e., by not reading the NY Times] observable ignorance.

    What are you saying? That America’s blue collar class should be disenfranchised because they don’t read the globalist, money power propaganda of the New York Times (Prop. Carlos Slim, among 10 richest men in the world).

    Which [Trump tweets] more often than not have been proven to be Fake News.

    Examples of which you do not give.

    What a number of fine posters say here on a number of occasions–blame the Jews. Is not the Donald beholden to them considering his daughter married “one of the tribe”?

    So if I understand that correctly, your view is that the Jews in America are a monlithic self-serving block and the only way to deal with them is by expulsion or genocide.

    Now you’re catching on, sport [i.e., Trump does what Jews tell him to do].

    So what, according to you, I am catching on to is that Trump, himself a Jew to all intents and purposes, is being forced against his will to adopt policies imposed by America’s monolithic Jewish establishment, a proposition that seems to entail a contradiction.

    I thought, my dear Corvinus, that there might be some sense in you, but you’re not showing any right now. I suggest you review your assumptions to see which of them, if any, are based on objective evidence, rather than mere propaganda points of no logical validity.
