The blood libel against the Covington kids is a great metaphor for what is happening across the Western world. After taking an hour of abuse from a group of black lunatics taunting them as "school shooters", "crackers", and "niggas", a few redskins walked into the Covington group and pounded crude sound instruments in their faces....

Joe Sobran famously quipped "in their mating and migratory habits, liberals are indistinguishable from members of the Ku Klux Klan." That observation, astute for its time, is covered in dust and growing moldy. The percentages of whites, by age, who have a non-white spouse or partner: Just 1-in-20 young white Republicans are flirting with the... Read More
Despite all the media promotion, there is no organic interest in O'Rourke. Search volume in the US since the beginning of December, after the dust of the mid-terms had settled, for the top four candidates and O'Rourke: Search index scores--basically average interest over the period--are as follows: Biden -- 20 Warren -- 18 Harris --...

What a missed opportunity. He's been called every -ist and -ism in the book during his entire congressional career yet he keeps getting reelected even when other Iowan Republicans lose, so why play by their rules? Now that he has gone full pathetic pusillanimity, he very well may not be reelected in 2020--if he even... Read More
John Derbyshire is fond of saying that if there is hope for civilization, it is to be found in the comments. The new Gillette ad--excuse me, the new short film--is a great testament to the perspicacity of the Derb's observation. A sampling: There are several comments along the same lines. I talked to my brother... Read More
The following graphs show two-way partisan affiliation among whites and total fertility rates among whites by state. The state-level results correlate at an impressive .73. States where whites still have a few babies here and there are red ones: The future belongs to those who show up, so if you're looking for comfort where some... Read More
Steve Sailer: The cliche isn't just raining down from above, it's miasmically rising up from below. Search volume in the US since 2004: That's quite the secular bull market. How about other Anglophone countries? First, the still largely Anglo Anglophone ones. Great Britain: Australia: Canada: Volume isn't high enough to register in
A recurring theme here is that Jews in America are either going to have throw in with the Heritage American whites they've long despised--if Heritage America will have them--or face the brown invasion in isolation. Despite Jews' best efforts, the POC ascendancy increasingly not only denies them claim to victim status, it views them as... Read More
The Imperial Capital is the only 'state' in the country that has, since 1970, lost non-whites and gained whites, in both absolute numbers and in percentage-terms. Funny how the political power center driving the Great Replacement has itself not only remained impervious to that replacement, it has--alone among the states--actually reversed the trend. The following... Read More
For the record, if Trump gets a cuck primary challenger like John Kasich or Ben Sasse, the weasel(s) won't win a single state with the quasi-exception of the DC caucus, a result that will be even worse for Conservatism, Inc than if it didn't win a single delegate at all. There can never be enough... Read More
Reuters-Ipsos has a poll tracking partisan affiliation that has been running since the beginning of 2016. It now has a total sample standing at 457,215 responses. The explorer allows for all kinds of filters to be applied, including state of residency, educational attainment, race, and 2016 presidential vote. So here are the results with those... Read More
The news articles on all the putative political fallout president Trump is putatively receiving for revealing how utterly inconsequential the federal government is to the well being of middle America are pulling fast ones on their readers. Here's an example from my favorite polling outfit, Reuters-Ipsos: Yikes, that's a 14-point gap in blame for Trump... Read More
Blacks in America support open borders. They express less support for immigration restrictionism than even Hispanics or Jews do. It's a perennial fantasy that they're the biggest opponents of open borders on account of being the ones hurt by it the most. Libertarians get a lot a grief from us for thinking urban blacks are...

In response to the accusation that this is shamelessly self-indulgent, I'm just following Derb's lead. That's what epigones do! It also serves as an introduction of sorts to those who've found the blog through Ron. What is your idea of perfect happiness? Rediscovering life through the eyes of my children, aged 5, 3, and six... Read More
Per Emil Kirkegaard's suggestion, mean IQ scores--converted from GSS wordsum results assuming a national average of 98 and a standard deviation of 15--by highest degree attained by the decade degree-holders graduated* (N = 14,978): Graduated in Grad degree Undergrad HS diploma 1960s 114.0 111.3 99.3 1970s 112.5 107.9 96.4 1980s 109.4 105.2 94.8 1990s 108.1...

As the #TrumpShutdown continues into 2019, one thing is clear: a border wall would be an absolute waste of taxpayer money. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) December 31, 2018 What the partial shutdown is making clear is just how superfluous so much of the federal government is. Most people have no idea what exactly is shut... Read More
The indefatigable Ron Unz stirred the pot by publishing his formerly private missive from last year addressed to those on the alt right. Ron points out that even as California has become considerably less white over the last fifty years, white racial consciousness has even less purchase in the state now than it did then.... Read More
Continuing on with the question of whether blacks understand questions about political orientation or if their offered responses approach randomness, the mean number of biological children for those aged at least 30 at the time of participation in the GSS. For contemporary relevance all responses are from 2000 onward: There is roughly a half-a-child gap... Read More

From Trends' state-level analytics, internet search interest in the term "Holocaust": The Murk Dwellers of the Imperial Capital, many of whom spill over into Virginia and Maryland, are a lot more interested in keeping the industry memory alive than the subjects they rule over are. Backing DC and its suburban states of Virginia and Maryland... Read More
The wall is Trump's no new taxes pledge. It's infinitely frustrating to see that he is apparently only now fully grasping that reality. Hell, rank amateurs have been pointing this out from the beginning: The Derb is concerned that Trump, cognizant of how his reelection campaign hinges on the wall or lack thereof, will give...

Jews are going to find it increasingly difficult to ride out front of the Coalition of the Fringes as honorary non-whites. After all, their privilege on virtually every objective measure dwarfs whatever putative benefits gentile whites get from their 'white privilege': Parenthetically, the April spike each year is on account of a federally-recognized couple of...

Concurrent with the inception of non-white sacralizing and of the flight from white. While the latter two trends continue their now five-decades-long ascendancy, Peak Holocaust hit in the early 2000s: As white gentile nations have increasingly taken on foreign non-white populations that are more hostile to Jews than the natives of said white gentile nations,... Read More
In response to the observation that self-identified political ideology is relatively unimportant in explaining black electoral behavior, tcjfs pointed to a paper suggesting that most blacks don't know what the labels "liberal" or "conservative" mean in an American political context. As a consequence, the political identity blacks assign themselves is random. They are reliably partisan,... Read More
A theme visisted and revisited here is that political ideology matters a lot to whites, a middling amount to non-black non-whites, and very little to blacks. The 2016 US presidential election iteration: While Trump was the least ideological Republican candidate since Nixon or maybe even Eisenhower, the ideological divide was virtually identical to the more... Read More
A majority of pale males thinks so: The respondent pool is relatively modest by Reuters-Ipsos standards. The Jewish sample is only 52 and consequently should be considered no more than directionally suggestive. One-in-five blacks and Hispanics perceive whites as being under attack. What percentage of this contingent thinks it a good thing that this is... Read More
Lynching is a dark and despicable aspect of our nation’s history. We must acknowledge that fact, lest we repeat it. Thank you to my colleagues for agreeing to unanimously pass our Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, and @CoryBooker and @SenatorTimScott for your partnership. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) December 19, 2018 This provides a nice... Read More
The graphs in this post are derived from a Reuters-Ipsos poll asking respondents if "to achieve my idea of a better society, violent acts are acceptable". To preface, The Current Year is not Weimerica. We're nowhere near the levels of political violence the country experienced in the late 1960s and 1970s, when domestic terrorist bombings... Read More
Jig Bohnson on why Kamala Harris won't be president: Because of gerrymandering and the stubborn refusal of non-blacks to live around blacks if they can help it, the Democrat bench has few authentically black blacks on deck for the national batter's box. This contrasts sharply to the congressional level, where many heavily black urban districts... Read More
In last week's Power Hour, the Z-Man noted that one major reason Trump gets so little Establishment push back for tangling with China--despite the real dangers involved--is because our elites are legitimately worried about the Middle Kingdom. Crowding out top American colleges, stealing the intellectual property elites live off of, pricing them out of major... Read More
Vox Day on an alleged attempt at retconning: Given my lack of familiarity, let alone expertise, with the relevant data on potential catastrophic anthropogenic global warming, I have little to say about the issue. Warmer temperatures offer humans a lot of obvious benefits--at least in the short term--that colder temperatures do not, so I'm more... Read More
A shutdown, complete with worker furloughs, will reveal to most people how unessential everything it does is for their lives. Normalizing life without DC doing whatever DC does is an essential step to selling political dissolution to the general public. We are headed for a breakup one way or the other. A soft landing, with... Read More
Foundational for public trust in the American legal system to stand is the acceptance of occasional Type II errors as a necessary concession to avoid Type I errors. A Type I error occurs when an innocent party is found guilty on account of a misreading--or blatant rejection--of the evidence. A Type II error is when... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos polling, the percentages of non-Hispanic whites, by state, who identify politically as Republicans in a two-party distribution follow. The poll ran from January of 2016 through November of 2018 so it serves as a good measure of partisan affiliation among whites in the Trump era. The total sample for the extended survey runs... Read More
Broadly speaking, there are three wings of the contemporary Democrat party--the POC ascendancy, corporate globalists, and socialist progressives. Securing the Democrat presidential nomination will be contingent upon garnering each wing's support, in respective order of importance. Obama won the 2008 nomination by dominating the POC ascendancy vote. Hillary similarly won it in 2016 by doing... Read More
More evidence gun grabbers are disproportionately geriatric (or in the case of David Hogg, have the bone density of the average geezer) from Reuters-Ipsos: Age ranges per generational cohort are 18-26 for Zurs, 27-38 for Millennials, 39-53 for Xers, and 54-71 for Boomers. For the purpose of obtaining adequate sample sizes, Zurs thus also include... Read More
Not just behaviorally, but morally as well. From Reuters-Ipsos, the percentages who do not say it is important "for your friends and family to be faithful to their spouses": Respondents are not just talking about themselves, they're describing their broader social circles. Same-sex marriage was from the beginning about tearing down the pair-bonded nuclear family... Read More
By the time the scales fell from my eyes in the mid-2000s, veterans of the Steveosphere were regularly referencing a BBC article from 1998 reporting on how 91% of Chinese scientists supported genetic engineering for eugenic purposes. The Han Menace won't be held back by all the egalitarian make believe that is retarding the West,... Read More
WaPo's motto: Democracy Dies in Darkness. From R-I, the percentages of respondents who say they are either "not very confident" or "not at all confident" about elections in the US being "accurate and legitimate": Credit where credit is due! Not unrelatedly: The contemporary US is an empire. It is not a republic and it is... Read More
I'm fond of referencing Razib Khan's observation--and auguring--about how we haven't had our Sulla... yet. Trust in institutions, and the processes of those institutions, is plummeting. Across the Western world it increasingly feels as though every dispute involves bad blood. Good faith disagreements are the exception. Do not expect millennials or Zs to arrest that... Read More
Looking through past polling on Calexit over the last couple of years led to a poll from SurveyUSA with some interesting results. The range of questions the organization puts forward is laudable, though the sample sizes are small. Reuters-Ipsos' huge samples have spoiled me. In this particular survey, questions focus less on perceptions of Trump... Read More
Why the disparity between white leftists and non-whites on the question of political dissolution? White liberals--especially Jews--are strongly opposed while the POC ascendancy is relatively supportive. White conservatives fall in between the beleaguered and the ascendant ends of the leftist demographic spectrum: This bugman does not want secession (via krusty): Even without having looked at... Read More
An overarching reason political dissolution seems likely is how starkly generational feelings about it are. Among Jews, for example, while just 6.8% of those aged fifty and older favor peaceful secession, 35.6% of those under fifty years old do. Those are the buckets I had to use to get statistical significant sample sizes, but the... Read More
A few additional ruminations regarding political dissolution: - What accounts for the exceptionally low level of support for political dissolution among Jews? The first thing that comes to mind is that a national breakup means the end of America's global military hegemony. Many AIPAC members will be out of a job and the American wars... Read More
Political dissolution is an idea whose time has come. Advocating it a decade ago was met with mockery even from many of those on the dissident right. No longer. A few years ago, Pat Buchanan began talking about it. Now it's entering mainstream discourse. From New York Magazine (via IHTG): There is no longer any... Read More
A few more observations from the 2018 midterms: - We hear a lot about the educational divide. Democrats are increasingly winning the college-educated while Republicans are increasingly winning those without college degrees. That's descriptive when it comes to whites (including Jews). It's not so with non-whites, though: - While higher educational attainment is inversely correlated... Read More
VDare carried the previous post containing some reactions to the 2018 congressional midterms, highlighting the finding that the vast majority of Democrats think it important that fewer whites and fewer men be elected to public office: An NPC, putatively sympathetic to VDare's mission, immediately and publicly cried foul: He was of course blatantly incorrect. The... Read More
Some reactions to the blue splash: - I'm quite pleased with the congressional predictions we made. Richard and I put the House at Ds 225, Rs 210. There are a handful as of yet undeclared but it looks like the final result is going to be Ds 229, Rs 206. In the Senate, we nailed... Read More
Richard Spencer's outfit, the National Policy Institute, has a series of posts I contributed to. The literary portions are, for the most part, not mine. I'm an Austrian economically so the institute's description isn't the one I'd give, for example, but there is not in my mind anything implausible included.I've followed Spencer for a long... Read More
