    White liberals can be maddening. They proceed through life happily proclaiming their devotion to progressivism, completely oblivious to the brewing demographic dangers on the horizon. Indeed, most polls show them doubling down on their beliefs in the era of Donald Trump. If you try to warn them, they will stare at you blankly. If you...
  • Over-optimistic about the educability of liberals.

    White progressives live in a web of delusion. Most are highly educated, one might say indoctrinated, and live like hive insects, responding to the goodthink signals sent by culture and government. It will take some sort of societal upheaval to break this connection. The gradualism suggested by the author could take decades.
    , @Wally
    And the propaganda that has really accelerated the demise of defensive thinking by so called "white liberals" is the fake & impossible "holocaust" narrative.

    The always self centered Usual Enemies of Free Speech invented it for the purpose creating a false sense of guilt, sympathy, political power and cash, tons & tons of cash.

    Hence the use of calling someone a 'Nazi' who resists The Big Lie.

    Casting aside the ridiculous "holocaust" does wonders in freeing yourself from tyranny and stopping the destruction of Euro-whites and their culture. It renders the false epithets useless.

    Over-optimistic about the educability of liberals.
     
    are liberals currently completely misinformed about reality by the media?

    yes

    are liberals eventually going to be hit by the consequences of their action?

    yes

    so the education of liberals is inevitable - the only question is if it will be in time or too late.

    (i accept that for various reasons some won't change whatever happens but they will be ignored)
  •   In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of...
  • Saving Middle America and saving the Republican Party are two different and contradictory things. Mr. Buchanan ought to know that by now.

  • Throughout 2016, I would occasionally turn on the television to see how the punditocracy was responding to the mounting Trump tsunami. If you get most of your news online, watching cable news is frustrating. The commentary is so dumbed down and painfully reflective of speaker’s biases, you can always basically guess what’s coming next. With...
  • I believe that good people were available to serve Trump. I know a lot of them. Surely Bannon could have identified many. Instead, Trump relied for talent on the same Republican Establishment that tried to kill him and that has no principles except greed and lust for office. So what if he repealed some regulations and cancelled the environmental accords? Where are his major goals that he was elected for: build the wall, drain the swamp, support the deplorables, dismantle the over-extended empire. Where are the new District Attorneys devoted to prosecute Establishment criminals? Where is the forceful stand against leftist political violence? Repeal of Obamacare?
    We have hope for the new federal judges, but we have been betrayed on that more times than I can count. Most of them are Federalist Society, which means they don’t have a clue about states’ rights.
    Where is work on the debt?
    I believe if Trump would go to the country with strong arguments about the real problems and real solutions he would have a majority behind him.

    Trump is clueless, not a strategic thinker. He is easily distracted and does not understand even the major themes of what got him elected. As Ann Coulter said, you could go to the southern border and throw a brick in the dirt and that would be more of a contribution to building a wall than Trump has made.

    NK does represent a problem but what kind of a problem? Where do we and the rest of the world stand on non-proliferation? Important questions but one day in the recent past I woke up and a carrier task force was steaming toward Korean waters. Really? I didn't recall that being mentioned during the campaign and what happened to the rest of the Trump agenda? This is an incoherent administration.
  • To understand many Mexican attitudes toward the United States and immigration, you have to go back to the Mexican-American War of 1846-48, of which most Americans have never heard. The United States attacked Mexico in a war of territorial acquisition, occupied Texas, California, New Mexico, and Arizona, and drove south to conquer Mexico City. It...
  • It is not true that the Spanish empire ended slavery in the 1500s. This is, I suspect, a bit of sanitizing Catholic history. It outlawed Indian slavery. Bishop Las Casas said that enslaving Indians was bad but it was good for blacks. Slavery of blacks was long practiced throughout Spanish America. It lasted in Cuba several decades after the U.S. War between the States. Even more so in the Portugeuse territories.

    Actually the Pope gave the portuguese (jews) monopoly rights for the slave trade. The commonality of slave trading by Portugal and Britain is one of the "ties that bind" between the two countries.

    THE POPE, THE JEWS, AND THE SLAVE TRADE
    http://linesandprecepts.com/2013/11/23/popes-that-supported-the-slave-trade/
    Pope Nicholas V issued the Papal Bull Dum Diversas on 18 June, 1452. It authorised Alfonso V of Portugal to reduce any “Saracens (Muslims) and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. This facilitated the Portuguese slave trade from West Africa.....

    Portugal, the mother of all slavers Part II
    http://www.africaspeaks.com/articles/nacs0502.html
    We conclude the piece on how Portugal gave birth to the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. Part I was run in the March issue.

    As shown in Part I, the Portuguese king, Henry the Navigator, gave explicit instructions to his sailors in 1445 to "win over" the Africans so they could "buy" human beings, instead of kidnapping them as they had hitherto been doing. How anybody can "buy" a human being for a motley collection of a bottle of rum, a teapot and a thread of glass beads, and still call himself "civilised" and a "Christian", numbs the mind.

    But that is what the Portuguese did. By 1488, they were making so much money from the slave trade that King Joao, with pride in his eyes, could tell Pope Innocent VIII that "the profits from the slave trade were helping to finance the wars against Islam in North Africa."

    By 1506, the Portuguese monarch was earning over two million reis from the slave trade through taxes and duties. By royal decree, Portuguese settlers in the Americas (then called the New World) were given loans on easy terms, from 1531 onwards, to buy slaves to work their sugar plantations.

    A touchy issue

    As the profits mounted, the Portuguese elite and the rich put more investments into the trade. It is here that we come across a very touchy issue - the involvement of European Jews in the slave trade.

    But as the facts must fall where they may, even Hugh Thomas, one of the greatest Western chroniclers of the slave trade who went to exceptional lengths in his 925-page tome on the slave trade published in November 1997, to disguise the involvement of European Jews in the slave trade, cannot help but say:

    "The most important merchant of Portugal concerned in the slave trade in the mid-16th century was Fernando Jimenez who [was] based in Lisbon... Despite his Jewish ancestry, the powerful reforming Pope Sixtus V was so appreciative of his services that he gave him the right to use his own surname, Peretti.

    "Jimenez's descendants were among the largest contractors in Africa - above all, eventually, in Angola. The Jimenezes were run close in wealth and influence by another New Christian [an euphemism for a converted Jew or converso], Emmanuel Rodrigues, and his family - including Simon, a dominant figure in the [slave] trade from Cape Verde."

    Hugh continues: "Other conversos in the slave trade included Manuel Caldeira, whose great days were in the early 1560s, and who then became chief treasurer of the realm... It is true that much of the slave trade in the 16th and 17th centuries in Lisbon [the glory centuries of the Portuguese slave trade] was financed by converted Jews, New Christians or conversos; though whether such a person is to be seen as a Jew is not something on which I should wish to pronounce."

    Who can blame Hugh Thomas? The involvement of European Jews in the slave trade is almost a taboo subject, which only the brave talk and write about. .....

    Not so simple. In fact, in the times of Bartolomeo de las Casas, Spain had an agreement with Portugal NOT to compete with the Portuguese in the West African trade/colonies, i.e. the source of black slaves was closed to the Spanish. Later the spanish "latafundistas" complained that they were at a commercial disadvantage because they did not have Africn slaves.

    Esclavitud en España
    https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esclavitud_en_Espa%C3%B1a

    Los esclavos de procedencia africana[editar]
    .... No obstante, de entre las potencias colonizadoras, España fue posiblemente la menos esclavista como consecuencia de la firma del Tratado de Tordesillas en 1494, que impedía el transporte de esclavos desde África, entre otros límites al comercio. Tratados posteriores, como por ejemplo el firmado en 1713 con Inglaterra cedían la totalidad del comercio de esclavos de raza negra a otras potencias. Como consecuencia directa de esta política, en las regiones colonizadas por España apenas existieron negros (caso de México, Ecuador, Perú, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay y Paraguay), a diferencia de lo que sucedió en las colonias portuguesas (Brasil), holandesas (Guayanas y fuerte comercio en las Antillas y otras áreas de El Caribe), francesas (Sureste de los EEUU), e inglesas (Este de los EEUU, Jamaica y Belice). Gran parte de la población de raza negra hoy en día asentada en países como Colombia, Venezuela y en varios de Centroamérica, así como la de Ica en Perú, procede de movimientos acontecidos en los primeros años post-coloniales, bajo la soberanía de las nuevas repúblicas independientes, o bien del hundimiendo de barcos esclavistas en tránsito como sucedió en Esmeraldas, Ecuador. Precisamente, los movimientos independentistas contra la corona española en grandes áreas de Latinoamérica comenzaron con las quejas de grandes hacendados que no podían competir comercialmente con los hacendados de territorios que no formaban parte de la Colonia Española, ya que estos últimos si disponían de abundante mano de obra fuerte y barata......

  • Gentlemen, if we are going to discuss these things, please use the term SECESSION and make an effort to understand what it precisely means.

  • John C. Calhoun was not a “legal scholar.” He was a Constitutional interpreter and political philosopher. He did not invent State rights; it was implicit in the nature of a Union as a creation of the states and was fully expounded by Jefferson and Madison. Lincoln was absurd when he said that the Union was older than the States. How could a union among states be older than the states creating it?
    Tariff. Let’s get straight what was at issue if we are going to discuss this. The Constitution forbids taxes on exports. It allows taxes on imports for the purpose of raising revenue for the govt., not for the purpose of excluding the foreign competitors of domestic manufacturers. Estimates differ, but the South produced through out history up to 1861 about 80% of all the U.S. exports. The Yankees had little that the world wanted. These Southern exports were sold on the world market with the producer at its mercy. From the 1820s there were constant efforts to raise the tariff on imports so that it would exclude foreign products. Meaning Yankee capitalists had a guaranteed profit, a captive market, and could charge more than market value for their products. Crony capitalism. Since the South made possible the U.S.’s international trade, it was de facto being taxed for its exports which should have produced a return trade. Yankees were vicious and violent in their intent to make the tariff law enforced. Almost 50% with the Lincoln regime.

    John Calhoun is known as a legal scholar and political theorist. We're he around today he would be like Buckeley, Kissenger and Buchanan cranking out best sellers.

    In 1957 the senate decided to create a list of the 5 greatest senators of all time. Calhoun is one of them. Even when he was a teenager at Yale he was considered a genius by his professors

    The civil war destroyed the legal secession theory once and for all. But it was a well reasoned excellent constitutional theory. But the President disagreed.

    I'm certainly not a Confederate Heritage person. But I can appreciate a great mind.

    The great legal scholar Calhoun died before the civil war, but from the 1820s on he wrote the same things you just did about tariffs. King Cotton ruled. It was the equivalent of oil today.
    But the exporters could have just raised the price to cover the export taxes? That's what usually happens. Wouldn't the Europeans and the rest of the world have gladly paid enough to cover the export tax?
  • I can’t imagine what World War II has to do with this, except, as the admirable Mercer points out, Hitler was a great admirer of Lincoln. (So was Karl Marx, who thought Lincoln was carrying out the first phase of the Communist revolution.) The Germans waged wars of invasion and conquest of other people, accompanied by unprecedented war crimes against civilians. So did Lincoln, who 60% of the American people had voted against.
    It would take several books to unravel all the mistakes about Lee, the tariff, etc., that have been offered here. The War cannot be discussed realistically because for too many Northerners the idea of a righteous crusade is a cherished part of their own self-love. Just remember, the War was essentially a brutal invasion to destroy the liberty and self-government of other Americans who only wanted to be left alone. It destroyed a good 4th or more of the men and more than half the property of the South. And note this: General Lee was loved by his men in a way almost unprecedented in history. General Grant was called by his soldiers “Butcher Grant.”

However, that territory taken over in the Mexican War was mostly empty or lawless and in places like California there were already more norteamericanos than Mexicans and the Mexicans there were not at all happy with Mexico City.

And during the conflict before and after the war the Mexicans did not exactly behave like Boy Scouts—massacres, banditry, etc.

    Yes, I don't think most people these days realize just how few Mexicans lived in the areas involved. I seem to recall that at the time of the Mex-Am War, there were something like 7,000 Spanish-speaking people in California, and perhaps twice that number in Texas. The sole exception was New Mexico, which I think had something like 50,000 Mexicans. Almost nobody lived in the other territories.

    While Mr. Reed excoriates the historical ignorance of Americans vis-a-vis Mexico., he relies on that ignorance to make his arguments. At the inception of the Mexican-American war, most foreign experts thought the US was going to be thoroughly thrashed. Mexico had a large, well-equipped, experienced, and supposedly well led army. When hostilities commenced the US army was small, ill-equipped, untried, and didn't have much of a record of military successes. The War was hardly just a consequence of US belligerence. Borders were in dispute and by US standards Mexico had made some moves that amounted to an invasion. Ultimately, it was the US David that beat the Mexican Goliath. The coward Santa Ana once again sold out his country to save his skin and the rest as they say is history.

    Reed mentions the Pershing incursion but neglects to mention that it was in response to a series of cross border raids by Pancho Villa and massacres of American men, women, and children. The Mexican President, Caranza, infuriated Wilson by his refusal to do anything about Villa. Caranza's excuse was that the on-going race war in Mexico, which Mexicans now refer to a s a revolution, tied his hands. But a country that cannot control its borders in both directions can hardly complain when another country steps in to mend the deficit.

    Having dabbled ever so slightly in this process in the spring, my impression is that there is a mechanism run largely by lawyers from the big DC law firms (presumably one for each party) who are the gatekeepers for applicants. The result of this system, which I have little doubt that the "Trump Team" did not try to take on (after all, they had only a couple of months to put together the beginnings of a team, and that left little or no time replacing The Swamp Machine...) is that the key positions throughout the administration are largely filled with lawyers from connected law firms. After all, who better to administer the government than lawyers!?!?

    At any rate, my experience with the process was: on your marks, get set, nothing. 30 years experience in and around federal government, but not a lawyer. Don't call us, we don't want to talk to you. (I also made clear in my cover letter that the key motivator for my application -- and first ever political contributions -- was Trump and his agenda. In retrospect, this "admission" was probably a kiss of death. I was a Trumpite. Eeeewww!!!

  • Grandpa Charlie has let his imagination run away with him. Wonder what source he is channeling for his false information? Or possibly reading comic books. Sherman did not have black Buffalo soldiers as a bodyguard. They did not even exist at the time. The notion of powerful black men protecting and liked by Sherman is pure fantasy and could not have been possible at the time. Sherman is on record as saying that he would be happy if the blacks could have been gotten rid of. Yes, Yankee soldiers did tear up dolls and nail pets to the door, as well as put guns to the heads of women, shoot 13 and 14 year old boys and black men, and rape black women. They also danced around in women’s clothes while they burned houses, schools, churches, libraries, convents, etc. It is all documented as well as anything in history. At Appomattox Grant allowed the Confederates some rifles for protection on their way home. So that statement is false. Joe Johnston served as a pallbearer for Sherman not because they were great friends but as a gesture of reconciliation. Grandpa, put down those comic books and read some actual history.

    All I am trying to say is: "Yes, Ilana, there is another side (other than the pro-South side) to the discussion about the Civil War." There are probably even several sides to the history of the Civil War, no one of which can lay an exclusive claim to the truth. For example:,

    http://www.salon.com/2013/03/16/the_south_still_lies_about_the_civil_war/

    And, btw, this has nothing to do with the current MSM lies about and DHS agents-provateurs manipulation of events at Charlottesvillle ... or with any of the genocide against white folk ... or, most especially, this Civil War talk has nothing to do with Patriots or with defense of the First Amendment. And, to make myself clear, I doubt that there really is another side (other than Ilana's) to the ongoing genocide in Ilana's home country, South Africa, But this is America, and there really are at least two sides to any valid discussion of the Civil War (notoriously so.)

    Anyway, it seems that I am called upon to defend myself and my comment, so here goes:

    First, about the tearing up of little girls' dolls, I call "booshwah" to that, based on common sense. Sure it could be that there's one instance, or even more, of interviews or memoirs of Confederate widows that recount the supposed desecration of dolls or the crucifixion of family pets. Are we really supposed to believe that it was a policy of Sherman's or a general practice of the men in his command to tear up little girls' dolls ... what? and force the little girls to watch? Or to crucify family pets on the front doors of the mansions of the plantations? In passing here, I note that the standard of proof used by Ilana is cynically expected by Clyde Wilson to be "documented as well as anything in history" - whatever that means, other than that anyone can say anything they want, so long as it's written down somewhere. But does that mean that I have to check my common sense at the gate?

    Second,, about that Grant allowed the vanquished "to keep some rifles for protection on their way home." Would that have included Mosby's Rangers - a guerilla unit whose specialty was hit-and-run harassment of Union troops in Virginia? (As it turned out, yes, Mosby too surrendered peacefully, at the last, and was paroled, which included surrendering firearms.) What they were allowed to keep was their horses, which were their own personal property. Here's something that is "as well documented as anything in history" -

    " three things came out of this meeting [surrender at Appomattox] - each Confederate soldier would be given a printed pass, signed by his officers, to prove he was a paroled prisoner; all cavalrymen and artillerymen would be allowed to retain their horses; and Confederates who had to pass through Federal-occupied territory to get home were allowed free transportation on U.S. government railroads and vessels." (Trevor Plante, published in Prologue Magazine, Vol. 47, No. 1)

    Nothing there about keeping their rifles, and yet Clyde Wilson accuses me of being a liar for saying that Sherman allowed the vanquished to keep their rifles (see below), whereas, "Grant would have none of that."

    Some time after Appomattox, Johnston and Sherman worked out their own post-Appomattox document, in North Carolina, where the last large contingent of the South's armies had been forced to surrender to Sherman. Here is more "documented as well as any history:"


    [Agreement of Johnston and Sherman] went beyond military terms and the surrender of Johnston's army. The agreement applied to any (read all) Confederate armies still in existence. The troops would disband and return to their state capitals, where they were to deposit their arms and public property at the state arsenals. The federal executive would recognize state governments, including their officers and legislatures. Where rival governments existed, the U.S. Supreme Court would decide which one would be recognized.

    Federal courts would be reestablished in southern states, and the people would have their political rights and franchises guaranteed, including their rights of person and property. The war would cease, and a general amnesty would be provided.

    Sherman was convinced his signed agreement with Johnston would end the war. In his cover letter awkwardly addressed to Grant or Halleck, Sherman argued that the agreement, "if approved by the President of the United States, will produce peace from the Potomac to the Rio Grande."

    In a follow-up letter to Halleck the same day, Sherman advised: "please give all orders necessary according to the views the Executive may take, and influence him, if possible, not to vary the terms at all, for I have considered everything."

    Sherman had overplayed his hand. He did not realize that neither the President nor any high-ranking member of the federal government would ever agree to the terms outlined in his accord with Johnston. The plan he worked out with Johnston was quickly rejected by federal authorities.

    Sherman, thinking he ended the war, was surprised by the response he received from Washington. The Union commander had to inform Johnston that unless new military terms were reached, their armistice would end on April 26. That day the opposing army commanders met once again in Durham Station and worked out an agreement limited to military issues. Now that political matters were not included in the terms, Grant, who was sent to make sure Sherman got it right this time, quickly gave his approval, thus accepting the surrender of the largest Confederate force still in existence.
     

    That's the thing that I am saying about how Sherman was well-liked by many Southerners following the Civil War: he was liked because he tried to work out (and, with Johnston, did work out) a comprehensive peace agreement that could have saved a lot of grief for a lot of people if the government in Washington had agreed to it.

    It's very easy to call me names and such, but it's a lot of work to actually dig in and present facts ... so I'll be taking a break in order to compose the rest of my defense against the gang of my accusers and denigrators, a bunch that seems to want to exceed Black Lives Matter in unreasoning and stubborn arrogance.
