Thomas observes: Again with Trump, on this issue as he has been on others, he’s Schrödinger’s politician: either a fool or a genius, depending on how you look at it and how the chips fall. Either he got buffaloed into this mess by Ryan, rather than getting out in front of it; or he was... Read More

Since Hillary's ignominious defeat, some of the smarter Democrats have been staring at Electoral College maps and quietly discussing an alternative to Hillary's mainstream strategy of running on transgender locker rooms, putting a failed cop killer's mom on stage at the DNC, praising Ms. Merkel for letting in her million Muslim mob, and calling "deplorable"...

I don't know about lately, but back in the 20th Century, it was common for London newspaper pundits to periodically loudly announce a whole new stance on a major issue of the day such as the Common Market. Public feuds with ex-friends and embraces of ex-enemies would ensue. Sometimes the change would be on one... Read More
Skull & Bones is an amusingly secret society at Yale that picks out 15 Yalies per year for membership for weekly "lemon sessions" in its fortress-like clubhouse on the campus. The 2004 Presidential election featured two Skull & Bones members facing off. George W. Bush's grandfather Sen. Prescott Bush boasted of stealing Geronimo's skull to... Read More

In the 2017 NYT Victimism Tournament, perennial finalists Anne Frank and Emmett Till square off for the title. Team Anne goes with the rather ho-hum theme of Raising Awareness.

Commenter Thomas alerts us: OT: the latest bold new front in endless war for Social Justice: dairy = hate, because whites are lactose tolerant (and, I assume, because milk is another “white bread” food).

There's a general feeling that the reason that non-Moore's Law things keep getting more expensive (Cost Disease) is because we're doing things wrong. And that may very frequently be. But I fear there are often good reasons for doing things more expensively today. Presumably, the Oroville Dam main spillway was close to state of the... Read More

An interesting question -- to me -- is whether Middlebury professor Allison Stanger being hospitalized by the violence of anti-science / anti-free speech thugs enraged at her attempting to argue with Charles Murray rather than to screech at him qualifies as a hate crime. As far as I can tell, this hasn't occurred to anybody... Read More

A few brief technical notes: Reuters-Ipsos never... Read More
Despite all the assumptions about Tragic Dirt, black neighborhoods in Los Angeles tend to be conveniently located.

Not surprisingly,... Read More
Boyle Heights is a Chicano neighborhood only a couple of miles east of booming downtown Los Angeles. It's dumpy, but not hugely homicidal because the Mexican gangs keep the blacks out (the 2000 Census found Boyle Heights to be 94% Hispanic and only 0.9% black). So it has become a natural choice for gentrifying white... Read More
Here's George Soros's new Hate Incident Database map at his well-funded Communities Against Hate site.

From my column today in Taki's Magazine on the Establishment's response to Rep. Steve King's blunt truths: "Frantic Yelling Ensued." Not "an American idea," but "the American idea."
Here's the Washington Post's headline above, complete with Shephard Fairey's sexy Orientalist American flag hijab that fashionably covers up a few extra pound so that when Houellebecq's Submission happens to America, a lot of feminists will be pleased, they presume, because all those slender bitches who diet won't be able to flaunt it anymore. And... Read More
