    Astounding: John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and the Golden Age of Science Fiction Alec Nevala-Lee, New York: Dey Street Books, 2018 Alec Nevala-Lee, an Asian-American science fiction writer,[2] has here written something remarkable: an intentionally PC multi-biography that nevertheless manages to be well-informed and informative, well-written and compulsively readable....
  • The Golden Age is twelve; just so. I read all this crap as a kid and I’m so glad I didn’t know anything about the authors, nor want to; “escapism” my dad called it and that’s what I craved. The drug store was my library and my choice was entirely based on the cover art and whether the author had a cool name. “Asimov” was the Pinnacle, suggesting bug-eyed alien with death-ray in hand. I didn’t know Jew from schmoo, and wish I still didn’t. They took me to the edge of the universe. Thanks, guys (and “Andre Norton”). I didn’t need any stinkin’ context.

  • @Anon
    OT

    Kevin Mitchell's recent book on genetics, Innate, has a chapter on intelligence: "Some kids are smarter than others ... They start smarter and they stay smarter.... This is no longer a subject that can be argued about in the abstract, or even one that is situated purely on psychological or sociological ground -- we now have many insights into the genetic, developmental, and neural mechanisms underlying such differences."

    Anyway, in the course of the chapter he has some sample IQ test questions. There's one I cannot for the life of me figure out, and amazingly, nobody has asked about it in a way that got it into Google's index, except for their scan of the book itself in Google Books. Here is the question:

    Question 2: 19205111 is to steak as 381918 is to:

    (a) peace

    (b) chair

    (c) person

    (d) kite


    Here's the book scan on Google Books:

  • I’m interested in what makes these late onset male to female trans folks so appealing to progressives when it seems obvious to me that, say, 80% of them are rightwingers. In contrast, you almost never hear of, say, a liberal NPR anchorman announcing in his unassertive indoor voice that he's now an anchorwoman. Granted, almost...

    Weekly Standard looks like it will either shut down or heavily downsize!

    The funds subsidizing it will go to mildly nationalist Washington Examiner, which is even better.

    I once read that the publisher of the Washington Examiner was the original commissioner of the Steele dossier during the Republican primary as a desperate attempt to derail Trump, and handed it over to the DNC after the convention, but I’ve never been able to confirm this. Their site doesn’t seem particularly never-Trump, but I have lingering suspicion that the neocon cat in the box is not dead, but constantly moving between boxes.

    In a quasi sport that is primarily of interest to white men, F1 has rocketed to unimaginable technical heights. F1 proves that immigration is unnecessary if you want peak civilization. The British men and maybe ladies, who design and manufacture Mercedes F1 engines have reached 50% thermal efficiency in their modern F1 engines. This is staggering. Every few years the rules keep getting more strict but the engineering in the sport reaches higher levels. American Gene Haas who makes advanced machine tools and started an F1 team said that he simply cannot believe the level of technology (and he is buying everything not running a true team). The aerodynamics in F1 must surely be the most advanced in the entire world (google F1 front wing). This is all done with nearly 100% native populations or with mixed white populations and only a small fraction of non-European stock. Many of these teams are surely well beyond companies like SpaceX in terms of pushing the envelope. Where are the Julie Ioffe's on F1 and Le Mans prototype racing: activities that interested men who love both physics and sport; i.e smart dudes? Red Bull and Aston Martin are building a road car that will have 1,000 hp and weigh 2,000 pounds and corner at 3.5gs. Surely they are zero Congolese in this monumental tribute to physics; maybe a MENA, but few. These are all fun activities that meld adventure and tech. Ioffe says the world is better because the lowest barrier to entry game is dominated by the immigrant stock. What does it say then when zero of the target immigrants are found in F1?

  • From PLOS Genetics: The time and place of European admixture in Ashkenazi Jewish history James Xue, Todd Lencz, Ariel Darvasi, Itsik Pe’er, Shai Carmi Published: April 4, 2017 Abstract The Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) population is important in genetics due to its high rate of Mendelian disorders.

  • @the Supreme Gentleman

    In other words, Ashkenazi Jews are about 53% European and 47% Middle Eastern by ancestry.
     
    Remember, kids: Scandinavians, the Irish, Spaniards, Russians, Balts, Italians and Scots are genetically and culturally similar enough that they should be thought of as a unitary race who naturally treat each other as members of the in-group. Indeed, according to various luminaries, ranging from Dr. David Duke* to Richard Spencer to Andrew Anglin, Alawite Syrians and Shia Persians should be included in this Aryan in-group.

    But Ashkenazic Jews? Pshaw! They're a totally separate Semitic/Mongoloid/Demonic race that has absolutely nothing in common whatsoever with Aryans, which is why they don't intermarry with them, because they're Jewish supremacists who look down on the filthy goyim. (Oh, wait, a supermajority of diaspora Jews do marry the Gentiles that they allegedly look at as a separate and inferior race? Uh...let me get back to you on that....oh ok, Kevin MacDonald reassures me that this is actually part of a devious plot to appear as if they're not actually practicing a group evolutionary strategy by seeming to not do so. Nice try, Jews!)

    To drop the sarcasm for a bit: to be clear, I emphatically think that the best interests of Jews lie in identifying with other peoples of European descent, and perhaps even with East Asians in a global Ice People bloc. And furthermore that, in the absence of criticism, many Jews have adopted foolish notions about their/our history and some have attempted to join the Flight From White. (Rather unsuccessfully it seems, judging by how ardent anti-Zionists are about identifying Ashkenazic Jews as white and Israel as a racist/white supremacist state, and how New York lawyer Aaron Schlossberg was the first person to be the target of this new media phenomenon of Smite the Random White.) But some white nationalists ludicrously exaggerate the differences between Jews and the manifold other European and part-European groups that they casually allow under the whiteness umbrella.

    I feel most people (in Russia) will now support team England for the semi-finals, so I wonder if there could be some slight feeling "home team advantage" atmosphere developing for England in the match by Wednesday.

    Of all teams entering the World Cup, the most expensive teams (in player valuations) were England (1), France (2), and team Belgium were also not so far below (5).

    So at least in this World Cup, the free-market of player valuations has been maybe one of the most accurate predictor of reaching semi-finals.

    Russia has achieved as I imagined before - reaching about quarter-finals with emotional support of being World Cup home team. Penalty shootout is a lottery - lucky against Spain, and bad luck now. (Not sure we can call this emotional rollercoaster "entertaining").

    Hopefully there will now be some restructuring of the football culture, preferably studying the Belgium youth model which has produced many players with skill.

    Already, it seems the authorities will end the hooligan culture, which could have positive effects of encouraging more families in the stadiums, increasing revenues in domestic teams.

    Can anyone explain to me what the heck happened? My wife was peppering me with questions and all I could do was shrug and mumble.

    (It's not a secret that German team almost always win penalty shootouts - and there have been players that never fail with the penalties in an complete career: e.g. Alessandro Del Piero).

    But there's also a large part which is pure lottery, like Modric's penalty tonight which caught, and somehow falls into the other side of the goal in an evil chance. That is pure lottery.

    Loser teams say that.

    Scoring a penalty is a game of nerves. After a long and tiring match, knowing the enormity of the stakes, do you still have what it takes to kick the ball with a perfect combination of power and aiming? A lot of players don’t.

    Playing extra extra time etc. would be pointless and dangerous to the health of players, besides extremely boring to watch.

  • @Rational
    WW I = WHITES KILLING WHITES ONE.
    WW II = WHITES KILLING WHITES TWO.

    Thanks for the great article, Sir. We must not forget the greatest tragedy in the history of mankind—WW2. Over 100 million (mostly white Christians) died in this greatest tragedy.

    Though whites are the smartest people around and have invented most of the great inventions we have around us today, they somehow managed to kill so many of their own brothers and sisters.

    These 100 M whites would have been about 1 billion whites today, and whites would have been a world majority today, had it not been for WW2.

    Even though decades have passed, we must keep exposing the mendacity of our politicians and the special interests (you know who) who caused this great tragedy.

    Let all people learn that the best way to serve your country is to NOT join the army.

    The most heroic thing our soldiers could have done is REFUSE to fight.

    I would rather go to prison than bomb innocent people in Dresden.

    “These 100 M whites would have been about 1 billion whites today, and whites would have been a world majority today, had it not been for WW2.”

    I’ve been trying to put a number on the dysgenic effect of regularly killing off huge numbers of our best young men, starting with the truely horrific slaughter in our own “civil” war, through WW1 and 2, estimating the number of generations of children never born, multiplied by average family sizes, and considering that the offspring of the survivers would be increasingly weighted against the traits we regard as positive (bravery, patriotism, selflessness, fitness, etc.)

    I think we can generally see the results in our stock today, characterized in the term “soy boys”. Mental and physical problems seem historically high, so your estimate of one billion might even be low, but plausible; but as importantly, the quality of our people resulting from this systematic filtering seems undeniable e.g. compare the Wehrmact to today’s German army, where the effect of also murdering so many young women negates the possible benefits that would have accrued from their possession of these warrior genes.

    Reverse natural selection in action. Difficult to believe this isn’t by plan, that the Saxon will never again begin to hate.

    Exactly. Robert Weissberg discussed this in his book Bad Students, Not Bad Schools.

    "Schools" can't be good or bad, they are just buildings full of tables and chairs. They are only good or bad because of the people in them. Sure teachers make a difference, but they are small in number compared to the students. It is the students who overwhelmingly determine the quality of a school.

    But leave it to the liberals, they would never accept that people are unequal in aptitude or work ethic, they want to believe it is the schools - the buildings, the curriculum and the teachers who make schools great. I say let them have at it. Kick out all the Asian and white kids at Stuy, Brooklyn Tech etc. and replace them with 100% black kids, then sit back and watch how these "good schools" polish them into diamonds.

    Yes, libertarians ought to oppose tax increases, which is what tariffs are. We hold that voluntary exchanges are by definition advantageous to their participants.
     
    Tariffs = good when a nascent industry needs protection in order to take-off. Tariffs = bad when a nations industry are monopoly pricing. Low prices are the goal.

    Libertarian economic theorizing doesn't comport with actual history. Industrial Capitalism of Fredrick List in Germany, and Peshine Smith of America, both induced a dramatic increase in economic well being for their respective countries. Japan watched Germany and America closely and adopted industrial capitalism "External Tariffs low Internal Tariff" ideas,. Japan went from being a feudal economy to being an industrial economy in one generation..


    Contra the Keynesians who control the economy
     
    Keynes understood defects of corporate banker credit/debt driven economies. Keynes even noted during WW2 that if private debts declined, that would be proof of efficacy of government stimulation. The great depression was due to private debt buildup during 20's, especially due to bank credit creation (upon new debts) funneling toward the stock market. In run up to war, and during the war, U.S. spent exogenous treasury money (created outside of the banking system) to fund new industry. This went on to pay wages, to then pay off private debts. This is how U.S. emerged from war with low private debt levels.

    So, it is a perversion of Keynsian theory to suggest he would have been for high debt levels, especially when he was concerned about reducing build up. Keynes main idea was to save money during heady economic times, and stimulate during depressions/recessions.

    Finance Capitalism (not List's Industrial Capitalism) business model is to make debt instruments in order to make profits. Finance Capitalists harvest industry, patents, land and other real assets with swaps in order to cancel debts formerly created from nothing. Swapping depressed real assets for debts is part of the magick of (( Finance Capitalism)) which is nothing more than a sophisticated usury system.

    Industrial Capitalism by contrast uses a countries own sovereign credit to build industry and improve its commons, making citizens more efficient.

    Libertarians are apologists for "free trade" when instead a real free market is one free from rents and unearned income. Oh the horrors, a government that intervenes to drive prices lower!

    To get rid of rentiers, usury, and to squash unearned income sometimes REQUIRES TARIFFS. Proper tariff application in turn require a government manned by people with economic IQ's of more than two digits.

    It is beyond question that a national economy like that of U.S., requires both national steel and aluminum producers.

    You are not a country if you don't have borders, language, culture - and an economy with as much autarky as is reasonable.

    I can’t find the cite, but I read in an early discussion of tariffs, c.1800, someone proposed that they were fine for revenue, and the proper level was up to the point where it started to restrict trade, and beyond would bring in less revenue. It impressed me when I read it as an early expression of (then famous) Laffer Curve.

  • @Jack D
    The current hysteria (and that is exactly what it is - hysteria is derived from the Greek word for "uterus") has everything to do with Trump and nothing to do with the Id vs. Superego per se. The reason so many prominent men are being implicated is that "pussy grabbing" is EXACTLY what most (if not all) high-T, alpha males do and have done since we were silver back gorillas. And women have never complained about this, in fact they encourage it and when they are at their most fertile they do everything they can to attract the attention of the alpha.

    In the past, when prominent men were revealed to be pussy grabbers, their treatment by the Left was completely dependent on whether the men did or did not have the right set of Leftist beliefs. If they were not Leftist, then any pussy grabbing behavior was said to make them "hypocrites" - publicly they espoused bible thumping, privately they pursued 14 year old girls. And so they had to go on grounds of hypocrisy (since Biblical morality itself no longer exists - it's no problem if men lie with men, etc.).

    But, if their beliefs were in line with the Left, they were immune. Some feminists said of Bill Clinton that they would themselves be willing to pleasure him it that is what it took to keep someone of his correct belief system in office. Harvey Weinstein was widely known to be a pussy grabber but his political contributions and correct beliefs gave him immunity up until recently. Even at the moment when his bubble burst, his first statement was that he was going to devote himself to hunting down fascists so everyone please back off and let me continue working for the Cause.

    AND the fact that the men in question were no longer peak alphas and that the women who are attacking them are also past their own sell-by dates, was not an issue. Bill Clinton doddered around the Hillary campaign and was seen (sometimes) by her side and it was no problem. The only reason he did not feature even more prominently was due to Hillary's ego and not because he was a persona non-grata pussy grabber.

    So what has changed - first of all, it is no longer necessary to protect the Clintons. But more importantly, Trump is still in office. He appeared to have gotten away with his pussy grabbing despite not being a Leftist. The Russia thing appears not to be a sure bet - maybe they will get close to Trump and take down Jr. or Kushner, but the man himself will probably be unreachable. Trump himself had not done anything new to put pussy grabbing back in the news, so it was necessary to start a fire elsewhere, even if elsewhere meant throwing a few of your icons into the fire. That these were somewhat over the hill icons made them expendable anyway so it was not so much a bug but a feature.

    Even if he really “was going to devote himself to hunting down fascists”, it’s a strategic error;
    We’re his biggest, if not only, supporters.

    Einstein was in fact an inventor although obviously not as prolific as Edison.

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/df/Einstein_Refrigerator.png


    He and his student Szilard invented a refrigerator with no moving parts. It is said that Einstein used the skills he developed while working in the patent office to apply for the patents.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einstein_refrigerator

    "Einstein" and not "Edison" is sort of the modern day synonym for "genius" - people say "He's real Einsten" . No one says "he's a real Edison" .

    Very interesting drawing; apparently an absorbsion/refrigeration (chiller) design using heat alone to move the refrigerant w/o pumps or motors. I’ve long wondered why something like this isn’t in more common use, especially for solar a/c, although I’ve seen commercial units (Hitachi) advertised.

    Also interesting is the Leo Szilard signature. What future Manhattan project whizzes did in their spare time? If all those resources, human and other, hadn’t been needed to blow shit up, we’d all be driving Mr.Fusion flying cars by now.

    The amount of resources that we devote to making thing that kill other people (or defend us against being killed) is staggering but the world is a dangerous place so I don't know that we have any other choice.

    Home scale heat driven refrigerators still exist for places that are off the grid (the Amish buy them too) but they are not economical either in terms of purchase cost or running cost vs. mechanically driven units so they are as rare as steam cars or gas lamps. Probably the high purchase cost is in part due to low volume production - a very basic fridge that would cost $500 as an electric unit goes for $1,500 as a gas unit:

The problem is they were all outstanding which throws some shade on claims of cultural theft. Omar Sharif was probably the only near Arab among the stars.

    Terrific point, Jeff A.

    Today I read Richard Cohen's column "LBJ haunts Trump" published January 16, 2017, in The Washington Post. In the column, he stated that "an air of legitimacy clung to him (LBJ) like an odor." ( Eleven years old during that awful day in Dallas, I could smell it)

    Regarding our era's Corporate Media and its clever admiration & manipulation of Fake News, the following is what Richard Cohen wrote about the shady dealing Texan: " (the odor) thickened as opposition to the Vietnam War became more and more furious and it peaked, in my estimation with a HOAX (1967) by Paul Krassner in the counterculture magazine "The Realist." Tongue in cheek, it reported that LBJ had climbed into Kennedy's casket and there did unspeakable things (necrophilia). The story was abominable, tasteless and destroyed any other insult you could throw at it , but some people believed it. I know. I heard it."

    A secular Jewish Yuppie at the time, Paul Krassner wrote his "abominable" article, titled "The Part That Were Left Out" in reaction to William Manchester's approved biography of JFK. With a higher purpose in mind, Krassner believed "the satire broke through the notion that war in Vietnam was being fought by SANE men." Below is Truthmove.org (Forum) "information" which posits that members of the late-1960s press actually believed Krassner's story... and allegedly, so did Daniel Ellsberg!

    what does national debt and stock market prices have to do with my question?

    The deficit is roughly one trillion per year. The budget of the MICC is roughly the same, and is almost entirely wasted, indeed damaging to America’s actual interests. If we weren’t borrowing the money to shower on the financial, defense and bogus “security” sectors of the economy, the remainder of equities (the real economy) would be a small fraction of what we have now, and the corporations would have to provide real services to voluntary consumers.

    The entirety of the war on terror is to provide an excuse to lock taxpayers into permanent, involuntary debt servitude and divert resources to the financial elite, who either (to be charitable) don’t care about the resulting death and destruction, or more likely are quite pleased with it. The twin signatures of the neocon project are that the real goals are never stated, and all the expenses fall on someone else.

Putin hints at it too ... As has been appearing on Daily Bell & ZeroHedge, & long publicised via Veterans Today

    Years ago, both Zbigniew Brzezinski & Benjamin Netanyahu, both blurted out that 'Wikileaks' were 'selected' by US-Israeli intel agencies & have quite been Israel-protecting ... The pro-Trump 'leaks' of Assange this year, are part of a package to prop up Assange's crumbling credibility

    It seems Assange is not even 'living at the London Ecuador embassy' as claimed, but rather moved in & out by UK intel, with Assange just there for photos & meetings

    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2016/09/21/russia-govt-report-snowden-greenwald-are-cia-frauds/

    Amongst items to note:
    - Laughably, the official story is that Snowden first 'leaked' to Dick Cheney's friend & biographer at the Washington Post, anti-9-11-truth Bart Gellman ... no real 'dissident' would 'leak' to Dick Cheney's friend at a flagship CIA newspaper
    - Ex-gay-p-rnographer & Rothschild & Bill Gates employee Greenwald, received US $50 million from CIA-tied billionaire & war criminal of Ukraine Pierre Omidyar, who is certainly NOT interested in real 'dissidents' ... and one can see Greenwald produces very little with his $50 million 'brave great journalism' operation at 'The Intercept'
    - Snowden, Assange, & Greenwald are all anti-9-11-truth
    - Assange has had Rothschild lawyers & Snowden & family CIA-tied lawyers, who never represent real dissidents
    - Snowden's revelations were not 'new', just more details on what was fairly fully on 'conspiracy' websites from 5+ previous NSA whistle-blowers & even in a 2008 book
    - Snowden & Assange were both creations pumped by CIA newspapers New York Times & UK Guardian, who both have criminal charge complaints against them in Europe, for taking bribes to engage in libellous attacks & defamations against real US dissidents
    - Snowden & Assange have likely helped identify, silence, maybe even murder real dissidents, who were duped into contacting NY Times / UK Guardian / the oily Greenwald
    - And much more at the link above

Allow Russia to take over NATO, though they would seem to have no desire to interfere outside of certain areas already with a Russian component, such as the Ukraine?

    At least made it a little sense to fear monger about the Russians when they were Communists and controlled the Eastern Bloc, and, at least on paper, were committed to taking over other territories for Communism. But what is the fear here?

    I mean, is it really anything more than that the Russians won't support gay marriage? Are they conspiring to make American gays feel rather bad about themselves, because someone somewhere doesn't entirely approve of them, and that's very hurtful of the Russians?

    The neocons, the Harvard boys, the CIA and soros hurt the Russians badly in the 90’s, and they would like to finish the job before Russia gets completely back on its feet, and they know time is tight, hence the desperation and panic to get Trump on side, neutralized, or eliminated.

    On 22 May 2016, Gilad Erdan, Israeli Minister of Internal Security, threatened G4S for its decision to quit Israel by stating that G4S "will pay the price," at 17 minutes 10 seconds.

    Nasty sounding prick, all made possible by the USA being the colonial slave to Israel.

    G4S has definitely 'paid the price.' Along with the rest of America.

    Nice catch! Pretty creepy “coincidence” if not an outright threat. I wonder what kind of “payback” this worm would say he meant besides that which just happened to take place. In any case, message received…

    U.S. Secretary of State? A wandering citizen of arguably the most racist and illegal entity in the world, ongoing?

    Who is Ms. Mercer to define what and how the "Respectable Right" thinks? Her list is insulting to "respectable". A candidate for clever writer/propagandist, but Secretary of State?

    She writes, "The problem with Trump is not that he speaks unconservatively, but that he talks incoherently."

    Trump seems coherent - and plausible - to very many people - so much so he's likely to be elected if he can survive the usual suspects. Ms. Mercer is coherent too, and can't be trusted any further than Ms. Kagan, though they appear to be working different ropes.

    Partial apologies for the SecState recommendation; it was given “tongue-in-cheek” as some say. I thought the parrot remark was telling, but I keep forgetting that the Internet doesn’t do irony very well. Entirely my fault.

    Although I don’t know either woman at all, and certainly not their real motivations, I think your comparison to Ms Nudelman is very inapt, in fact, the two seem to be polar opposites; Mercer cares about justice, the Kagans obviously do not, in fact, it’s their greatest fear, soon to be realized, one hopes.

    Trump is doing fine on his own, but the long and sharp knives will come out when he wins the nomination. My guess is he will need at least one clever writer/propagandist on board. Ron Paul tried to do it straight and true and got hosed for his efforts. The neocons need about 40 years wandering in the desert for worshiping the golden calf. It’s all in the book, people!

  • A sense of modesty and proper comportment may be keeping Ilana from stating the obvious. Since I have neither, I’ll go ahead and say it; Mercer for Sec. of State! Her African Grey would do a better job as Press Secretary than anyone in recent memory, so it’s a twofer, like Bill and Hill without the speaker fees!

    Seriously, I seem to recall that she was an informal advisor to the last Ron Paul campaign and has a good outsider’s eye for the absurdities of the current political situation and actors; she knows the neocons cold and isn’t afraid to call them out. Donald needs to get her on the horn, stat.

    Thanks, Jeff. Nice of you.
    Before the Paul campaign became full of itself and clannish---because a certain libertarian faction got hold of it---they had asked for and received my endorsement. I also wrote a short position on Israel for them, which clearly got used. See "Is Ron Paul Good For Israel?" http://www.ilanamercer.com/phprunner/public_article_list_view.php?editid1=601.

I hate the linearity – certain characters (why these particular handful of “stars”, mostly annoying [re- Hanks, above], doing certain things, usually for unclear or preposterous reasons, following popular conventions of plotting, action, dialogue, message, and generally based on previous films and stories while hinting at more of the same in future episodes.

    Everything seems derivative and overdone. I want to at least have the illusion of control over the characters and story, even if I know it’s all programmed and not truely infinite. I want there to be interactive drama, and I don’t want to ever see Keanu or Morgan or Matt or Will Smith, etc. ever again, except maybe to blow them away with my fusion rifle and pulse grenades. Done with ” entertainment “. Movies are boring and TV is an overflowing toilet. I liked breaking bad though; the exception that proves the rule.

    There's no problem in preferring some form interaction, and even the illusion of control. The rise of the walking simulator type of games like The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Everybody's gone to the Rapture is basically this. As are the adventure games of Telltale Games, which are basically interactive movies with some choices. But Destiny? Doesn't it get old? I had my time under the sun playing Counterstrike after school or in the computer lab, but I've come to avoid any game that's repetitive, grindy or match based. Life's too short. Give me a nice sweet shooter campaign with some thrills for an afternoon or a juicy RPG and I'm set. Mind you, I'm speaking as someone who doesn't really get to play that much anymore, though I occasionally binge. I won't neglect RL for it and I also read a lot.

I've been working as a substitute teacher in a school district so poor that we have to use trailers with space heaters, and we were able to afford iPads. Not even one of them was stolen. Maybe that's not the problem, though, and I'm just stereotyping again, but just by coincidence, I've also worked for a company that Apple outsources its manual labor to (no it's not all in China), and I'm pretty sure there is some sort of educational discount for bulk buyers.

    Strangely enough, this scene reenacted the death of Timothy Treadwell and his female companion in Alaska where they were mauled by a grizzly bear, as seen in Herzog's movie "Grizzly Man". There too, the wild predator first killed the male and apparently, after having eaten part of him, left the body whilst hiding a little ways away. The woman, thinking the danger had passed, ran out to assist Treadwell and was in turn attacked and eaten by the bear.

    Is there a broader lesson to be learned here? Could it be that SJW's are afraid of things that are just part of life? Using the bear or neanderthal man as metaphors for that which is elemental, unconquerable, ineradicable in our experience, then it may be that someone complaining about these types of events and things is just railing against the limitations inherent in the human condition i.e. pain, death, the threat of meaninglessness etc.

    Behind their fears lies a deeper anxiety that can't be legislated away because it's just part of the human condition. That's why their efforts to extirpate the source of their discomfort come across as so totalitarian. To comply with their demands means altering environmental circumstances so as to make the world completely tame and non-threatening, which is another way of saying complete dominance of all contingencies, which implies total control.

    Great insight, musings. It works the other way, as well I think, right wing is most afraid of helplessness, but we know we’re not going to just run and scream. The bear might eat us but were going to (in our minds, at least) put at least five .44 hollow points into center mass first. This mindset, however unrealistic, is very calming. These chicks are afraid of everyday life, but its the primal fear of helplessness that makes them so wacky, dare I say hysterical.

    Interesting article, Fred. It seems you are trying to be sarcastic, and if so, good job.

    First of all, being a liberal or a conservative is relative.

    For examples, Judaists are liberal about immigration—to USA and EU, and want more of it, but they are conservative towards Israel and won’t let Gazans, the original inhabitants, immigrate to Israel, etc.

    The Chinese in USA are liberals, and want Americans to give them more visas, but in China, they are very pro-China and do not allow much immigration. In fact, China has net negative immigration—i.e. Emigration.

    As a conservative, I am very caring person—I care about the country and do not want more 3rd world immigrants who will destroy it through more crime, violence, job losses. It is not that I hate the Mexicans or the Chinese—I wish them good luck and good life—in THEIR OWN COUNTRY.

    In fact, most of the world is conservative—because that is common sense to care about your self, your family, your race, your country, etc.

    Liberalism is a uniquely American and European racket. Many countries do not have this liberal versus conservative dichotomy.

    Most of this research showing conservatives are bad people is a part of the liberal scam. Halpren is a Jewish name, so it may be a tactic to put down conservatives, since most of the Judaists (70%) are liberal and lying comes naturally to them (low morals).

    Here are some mistakes in your article:

    “For example, if you tell me that a man favors capitalism, with high confidence I can predict his attitudes toward China, race, immigration, environmentalism, bombing Iran, evolution, abortion, and so on. If you tell me that he advocates socialism, I will similarly know in advance his ideas regarding these things.”

    Well, go ahead then. I can tell you that many Bill Gates and other corporatists favor capitalism, so tell me their opinion on all these things and you will be wrong for the most part.

    I can tell you that Nazi Germany advocated socialism. So tell me their opinions on those things. Go ahead.

    “This suggests a genetic origin.” Not necessarily. If you are born in a America and most Americans love McDonalds hamburgers, that does not mean liking McDonald’s hamburgers has a genetic origin. All correlations are not genetically related.

    Liberals are liberal because they have some ulterior motive in asking us to be “liberal” to them, give them free benefits. Liberals have low morals. Eg. Bill Clinton, Harry Reid. Liberalism is just a scam.

    That must be why Zimbabwe is currently begging white farmers to come back.

    Partly because they made a big switch to tobacco because it’s a much better cash crop than maise and other vegetables, so they were experiencing food shortages, and this year the tobacco did very poorly, likely because it depletes the soil so rapidly that it only does well with constant rotation or much fertilizer. It’s also very susceptible to pests and fungi if not rotated and its very labor intensive.
    The deal under offer is for the white farmers to come back to work but not own the land. I don’t think there will be too many takers.

  • @HandledWell

    “there but for the grace of God go I.”
     
    You must have a very low opinion of yourself then.

    Many people have had the kind of adversity these "homeless" people faced. I myself lost a good job in the energy sector once. It was a good job, great pay and benefits. And I (and many other people), lost these great jobs through no fault of our own.

    I took a big financial hit. So rather than look for another job, I immediately gave up. Stopped looking for work, stopped paying rent. Hit the streets with a "poor me" sign and worked on my sob story rather than my resume.

    Kidding. Actually, I did what I had to do. I lived off my savings. Looked for work like a man obsessed. Cut expenses to the bone. Cut off cable and sold the TV. Cancelled Internet and stole it from Starbucks. And since I was single at the time, dates consisted of long walks, concerts in the park, etc.

    Is any of what the above describes really so difficult? I mean, it just amazes me. Is this country really so weak and backwards that simple things like "saving for a rainy day" and "do whatever you have to" are foreign concepts? I'm an energy engineer and I worked at Wendy's for god's sake! This poor Lisa can't work at Wendy's? She can't clean hotel rooms?

    What you describe when you say, "there but for the grace" is not humility. It's permissiveness. It's infantilism. It's telling Lisa and Kenny every other homeless person that they can't make it. That they aren't masters of their own destiny. They are simply to be pitied. Blown about by fate like a leaf in the wind, helpless to change themselves or their situation.

    And that attitude is worse than any job loss, any substance abuse problem, any economic recession. Those can all be overcome. The attitude you have? Never can.

    Google WAS a superior product. And its base search engine for sites, videos, archival content (books) and images remains fundamentally solid. However, its ergonomic utility with respect to Maps and News has degraded considerably over the past two years (this former now a bloated piece of eye-sugary mess and this latter unintuitive from the main site and barely accessible from the mobile version) and its "Froogle"/products feature gone from a short-lived useful clearinghouse to a useless sponsor repository. Even its videos section is hardly a picnic: the marriage of YouTube with Google+ destroyed the comments feature of the former and made maintaining channels confusing, counter-intuitive and highly intrusive. Conspiracy theories are tempting, but in the end Google is simply another victim of late-lifecycle feature creep, revenue grasping and power politics.

    Google translate, from my limited perspective (Greek/Russian>English) seems to have degraded, as well. Fortunately, Yandex has more than made up the difference in about the last year. I had an informal test involving sending some translated text back through to see how closely the output resembled the original, Yandex translate seems to be head-and-shoulders superior, at least in Russian. Actual milage may differ, of course.

    Google seems to throw out a lot of stuff that it quickly abandons. It also buys up promising tech, seemingly just to kill it. I guess they know what they’re doing, and really, my own motto is “If at first you don’t succeed, try something else.” It keeps me out of casinos, at any rate.

Their only mistake, almost fatal, was to let him in the “debates”, where he kicked everyones’ asses.

    Oh, that! That's all BS, man! It's based on the assumption that the conclusions of the 9/11 commission report are broadly true, but that there are these extra details they are hiding. Nonsense. The 9/11 commission report is just a fable and the Arabs they claim did it were just patsies.

    There is nothing new here. This Saudi Arabia connection is the same disinfo that was fed to fat boy Michael Moore back when and he made that silly movie Farenheit 9/11 -- you know, that one the Palme d'Or at Cannes. In that film, our hero Fatman follows every little cookie crumb trail that was set by the real perps and the cookie crumb trail tends to lead to Saudi Arabia, yes.

    So, they were already planting this kind of disinfo back then, over ten years ago.

    Maybe you disagree with me on this, but, if so, could you tell me what is the strongest evidence, in your opinion, that the Arabs they say did it (who I refer to as patsies) actually are the perpetrators?

    Completely agree. My only point in reference to the “28 pages” was to illustrate that the public will never know the facts of the matter. The perps would never hand any dynamite to the morons in Congress or the executive. My objection to discussions of 911 is that, whatever happened, Iraq had nothing at all to do with it. They had already stated that they needed “another Pearl Harbor” to scare the cattle into a stampede: a train derailment in North Dakota would have been sufficient. 911 got boots on the ground in Afghanistan. In for a penny, in for a pound. They already had everything in place, including full access to all electronic communications in the US, it only took a few white lies about WMD’s to steer the stampede over the cliff. An absolutely brilliant scam, hats off to the same bastards, pulling the same stunts in Ukraine.

    My point on trolling is (weirdly) the same as the wiz’s: I don’t want to see this absolutely unique site trashed by evil geniuses (geni?) or mouth-breathers, who of course are going to go to any length to make it go away. One would have to visit twenty other sites daily to read these people.

  • @Kiza
    Another excellent analysis by Saker. The point dearest to me is that it appears that Novorussians understand that Minsk2 is only a pause. Having observed the strategy of the West in another part of Europe I have absolute zero doubt that the war will continue. The question is when not if. Poroshenko or someone else, it does not matter, the was will continue, even if no strategic goals are achieved. The neocons will never give up.

    But, this analysis also suffers from a dose of wishful thinking. As 5371 says, there is only one truth in the West and it is the Nudleman's (cookie woman's) truth. Before M1 and M2, most of EU has accepted US approach to Ukraine even without much pressure. Can you try to imagine if the US really leaned on its EU puppets and aligned them all like ducks in a row? Or in other words, maybe the Russians never learn if they still hope that the EU countries will refuse to help US light-up the continent! Is it not crystal clear that US permitted M2 to those puppets to arrest the Novorussian advance - there was nothing to lose by signing a temporary M2 peace agreement?

    This is a war for the war's sake.

    Finally, I am glad if Putin organized and armed the rebels to ensure that he does not have to intervene. As long as Russia refuses to directly intervene, the Euro-puppets will experience a lot of counter pressure from the domestics and the US win will be unlikely. I know I am stating the obvious - but the only chance Russia ever had in this fight is that the Europeans get sick and tired of the US-only interests being pursued in Ukraine and they throw the US yoke off by kicking the US puppets out. This may be the only price the US is not willing to pay - losing EU to regime-change Russia.

    But, the second front, to Ukraine's first front, is the oil price front. There is a much better chance for regime change in Russia through oil-price manipulation than the war for the war's sake in Ukraine and this moment is just perfect. For a holistic understanding, one must look at both Ukraine and the oil price.

    I would add third front, economics; Russian banking is Frankenstein monster held together with banana strings and spit, outer republics are already broke and headed toward meltdown (sorry I can’t find link, ZH I think), currency is mix of dollars, euros, rubles and barter. China is having its own problems and may not be in position to help if trends continue. Some state banks are actively hostile and invested heavily in Ukraine and doing mischief in Crimea.

    West is stupid to be causing any trouble for Putin, who is really very liberal in classic sense. I’m coming around to PCR neo-Soviet position; at some point no choice but surrender or nationalize everything. When goods can’t pass borders, missiles will.

    • Replies: @Kiza
    Yeah, excellent insight about the Russian banks, they are run buy the neoliberals of the Yeltsin's era and they are just waiting for the right moment to pounce on Putin. In the mean time they are mudding the water in Ukraine. Recently, many Russian banks jumped at the opportunity to damage the Russian economy when the Ruble slide started. They could not depose Putin, but under a favorable set of circumstances (country already shaken by sanctions and oil price slide), they could inflict the deciding coup that does the regime-change. So yes, the Russian banks are the third arrow in the Western quiver.

    One could call this "a race to the bottom" - there is no country which looks really healthy. China is in a bad shape. The US itself could collapse any moment.

    My only real complaint about discussions of 911 is that there are far too many ” known unknowns” to be able to draw any conclusions that would convince anyone not already disposed toward one’s viewpoint. Not to mention Rumsfeldian “unknown unknowns”. I concede that it’s an open question. I have very strong opinions, but my only support for them is based on other’s opinions, really (and so is everyone elses’). Enough for an indictment, maybe, but not a conviction.

    9-11, and others. The subjects have been discussed at ludicrous length, nothing new is ever presented, and virtually no-one is dissuaded in their notions
     
    Should, to your mind, these issues be verboten?

    Should we consider the issue of 911 closed?


    This is a great article and the comments are wonderful. Thank you Mr. Unz for making this site available.

    Nothing should be off-limits, the 911 discussion is pointless until the secret information, including the 28 pages is released. We should realise that whatever actually happened, the official story is pure bullshit, and it served its purpose, to take us to war with a country that had nothing at all to do with it. Distressingly like the Boeing, come to think of it.

    Is Putin the greatest guy in the world? Possibly not, but he has the right enemies, G-d help him!

    Not absolutely. It provides a basic litmus test to sort out who is who here.

    The 28 pages are just more slight of hand trying to impugn the Saudis (or anyone to distract from who was really responsible), imho.

    The same people are in power today who took us into those catastrophic and treasonous wars. If they were somehow complicit in 911, and/or used that event to cynically foment illegal wars of aggression, then they should be removed from power at least!


    I'd like to see the criminals who did 911 brought to justice. I'd like for Dov Zakheim to not know a safe place to hide from the truth. I'd like to see the truth reach into their inner sanctums and pull them out by the short hairs - if indeed, they had something criminal to do with the unspeakable evil of that day.

    If the truth about 911 were more widely known, then war with Russia might be the last thing our ruling elites would be maneuvering for. Rather they might be asking Putin for political asylum and a room next to Snowden and sanctuary from the wrath of the awakened American sheeple.

    I certainly agree that the subject of organized, "professional trolling" and how to target it is indeed quite important. Also fascinating.

    I am not sure that I agree that the art is, properly understood, all that "advanced". It is more that the people trying to counter this, unfortunately, fall for the same basic handful of tricks. The trolls have a basic modus operandi which is that they are always adopting the position that it is up to you to respond to them. So they continually ask for proof of this, proof of that. A sub-tactic is that they construct a straw man version of what you are saying and then ask you to prove that!

    However, if you ask them to provide any proof of anything, they basically never will. So, for example, on the recurring 9/11 issues, they just keep asking you to prove that 9/11 was an inside job. And they bog you down in what are, properly understood, irrelevant details. For example, they will ask you to explain what exact explosives were used to blow up the towers, for example.

    What is amazing is that otherwise intelligent people allow themselves to get bogged down trying to answer these questions! It is quite clear to me that the correct rebuttal is to ask them what the strongest evidence for the official story is. Once you do that, the debate is over very quickly. This was demonstrated quite recently in the previous Saker article comments, where I asked this Sam Shama troll that question and he basically just shrivelled up like the Wicked Witch of West.

    In any case, this basic tactic, that they will ask you endless questions and then, if you ask them anything, just walk away -- I do not know that this can be characterized as something very "advanced" or "expert". It's more that the people who fall for this continually are quite "backward" and "inexpert". At least when it comes to this problem of countering the trolls.

    Now, as for your comments about the repetitive nature of some of the debates -- revisionist history of WW2 and 9/11 -- I have to say I am pretty much in complete disagreement with you. That these topics come up again and again is for a very basic reason: these things are key anglozionist ideological weapons.

    Example: just today, in my newsfeed there was an article about notorious neocon ideologue Bill Kristol saying that the agreement with Iran was another "Munich". Well, he's drawing at the well of this whole "History Channel", comic book version of WW2 and its origins.

    This is one of their basic ideological weapons and the attempt to deprive somebody of their weapons in a fight is pretty well motivated. When they keep trotting out these things like "Chamberlain in Munich", it makes sense that you would point out that this comic book version of history is not really true. Hitler's claims to the Sudetenland were not prima facie that unreasonable. Sudetenland was about 90% ethnic German and the vast majority of people wanted to be part of Germany rather than Czechoslovakia. It was prima facie reasonable for Chamberlain to go talk to Hitler and try to resolve the issue. (If Chamberlain made mistakes, was a bad negotiator, or gullible, that is a separate matter, but the mere fact that he went and talked to Hitler to try to resolve the issue... that, in itself was a sensible thing to do.)

    Granted, all that is a long time ago, getting close to 80 years now, but these anglozionist imperialists are still using this oversimplified version of history as an ideological weapon. And the 9/11 false flag is, of course, a major ideological weapon. It is the central plank of the whole jihadi terrorist threat fable.

    Again, a central ideological weapon of the anglozionists -- it is inevitable that it repeatedly comes up. Anyway, these are key ideological weapons that they are continually trotting out. It is quite well motivated in a battle, to try to deprive your enemy of their most cherished weapons, is it not!!??

    As for "insulting the Jews", well, this is misguided discourse, I think. The great Gilad Atzmon never tires of saying that the key of Jewish power is the power of the Jews to silence any discussion of Jewish power. To say that organized Jewry has massive power through control of Wall Street and Hollywood and mainstream news media.

    The damnedest thing about this is that Jews (Zionist Jews certainly) constantly brag about this among themselves! There are videos of Ariel Sharon and Netanyahu bragging (in Hebrew) to Israelis about the grip of Jewish power over the U.S.

    So, to buy into the idea that for non-Jews (or actually, even Jewish ethnics) to point out the existence of this power configuration constitutes anti-semitism -- essentially this amounts to being a complete chump and a dupe.

    It is no more antisemitic to say that the Judaeo-Zionist power configuration, a.k.a. world Jewry, was behind the Iraq war than it is racism to say that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

    Decrying this kind of thing is most certainly not antisemitism. Real racist Jew hatred would be like, say, hating Mrs. Morgenstern, your third grade teacher, because the sweet little old lady happens to be Jewish. That kind of antisemitism, actually, is currently close to non-existent. Criticizing Judaeo-Zionist control of the central bank and the foreign policy and the media is not racist or antisemitic really.

    That is one of the most basic Zionist hasbara tricks actually. To fall for that reveals a certain lack of criteria and judgment, that, I hope, is remediable.

    At the risk of taking another swipe at the tar-baby, knowing I’m out of my depth;
    “…That kind of antisemitism, actually, is currently close to non-existent.”
    This is what keyed me to the probability that much the anti-sem trolling is actually done by the pro- side; false flag by the Delta squad to get the ball rolling, away from whatever the inconvenient topic might be. Some of course, is from amateurs, for whatever reason, some is the equivalent of graffiti, the satisfaction of an annoying public presence.

    The only practical response, in all cases, is to not be drawn in, at least without considering whether the conversation is germane to the original topic. Just let it lie, walk away, don’t feed it. Sometimes this is easy, eg Armenian genocide, I don’t know or care. To cut the Gordian knot I use a simple heuristic: if the Yankees are for, I’m against. I know they are corrupt liars, thrives and murderers, I want them to fail, the sooner the better. As the Great Cassius Clay said, “Them Viet Cong never done nothing to me.”

    But I don’t intend to argue about it, though.

    Interesting thoughts are provoked by thinking of people who, for mischievous fun, out of malice, or with focused purposiveness may play elaborate games. While I have in the distant past had some fun on The Economist and other relatively mainstream blogs by adopting several different personae including some who appear to deride or criticise the others I wouldn't even try that on the Unz Review which I am keen to see succeed. But, giving the matters raised some thought I am not at all sure I agree about the supposition that some offensive bloggers are amateurs. (Some I am willing to believe are genuinely mad and/or stupid).

    How would you tell? The wilder and stupider and less literate some anti-Whatever rant is the more likely it is to put people off the Unz Review altogether. Cui bono? It doesn't have to be neo-cons or Israeli sympathisers. It could be some would be rival publisher who badly wants Ron'sRon's circulation so he can cash in on ads....

  • I convinced that the Hasbros have at least an alpha and delta team (not in the “game” sense, but the video game PvP sense).

If you have a three-digit IQ, you need to see past this, or the internet will become as useless as the MSM. Up your skillz, my peeps.

    INSULTING WHITES, AMERICANS AND GOYIM ON MAIN STREAM MEDIA MAKES THE JUDAISTS LOOK SICK AND DISGUSTING.

    This is reply to your comment that: “Insulting Jews on Unz, especially on posts by such as Shamir, Gottfried, Mercer, Finkelstein is just so stupid. This sounds exactly the kind of a thing a Hasbara troll would say.

    But if you turn on the TV or pick up the Jew York Times, you see lies and propaganda and hate of the Judaists against whites and their insanity.

    The Jewish controlled media and the Jew York Times constantly calls patriots “racists”, promotes mal-cegenation of white women with black men, while printing classifieds with Obituaries of Jewish women who simply married a white non-Jewish man, lie constantly day and night by promoting the alien invasion (while supporting apartheid in Israel), lie in support of Israel, and just spew lies, lies and lies by promoting the holohoax and other Jewish scams.

    As a person who used to love and admire the Jewish people, the hate and the constant lies against whites and America and other white nations (but in favor of Israel) that I saw on the Jewish controlled main stream media disgusted me against the Judaists. That is why I cancelled all my subscriptions to MSM and visit unz.com instead.

    Unz.com is 100 times better than the Jewish controlled MSM.

    Sorry if I phrased it poorly, but my point was that almost all of this back and forth about Jews, especially historical controversies, is just squid ink to obscure any substantive discussion of the present situation. I notice there isn’t a lot of discussion about current events that doesn’t devolve into some controversies about events that happened even hundreds of years ago. This is even more common on Russian blogs, understandably because their story is much older and more tragic than ours, but people need to move on to what can be done now, by those of good will, some of whom I mentioned. Almost anything else seems to be intentional redirection. These topics have been drained of meaning, by overuse, and its not accidental. Fools and knaves, together; I’m fed up!
    I expect bull hockey from the MSM. The solution seems obvious…

    good luck with having "substantive discussions of the present situation" in order to frame policies for present day and future solutions, without knowing how things got the way they are.

    That's like renovating a house whose walls have caved in without examining the foundation.

    heh.

    a neighbor was just saying that now that the paint has been stripped from exterior walls, but the brickwork not pointed, rainwater penetrates the open mortar joints causing the basement to fill with water in turn causing walls in the living room to mold. He's solving the problem by running a dehumidifier in the basement.

    Virtually everything that's being discussed in this article has its pedigree in what happened almost exactly one hundred years ago with the event of the Fed at Jekyll Island and with President Wilson's singular treason.

    And there's only one way through all of this, and that's through the Fed. Either by ending it or by a slow death of the Federal Reserve Note. As long as a hand full of men can create several trillion dollars by hitting some keys on their computer keyboard, then they will call the shots. At least in the former, putative west.

    It is in fact those men (the literal blood descendants of the men at Jekyll) who are fomenting the strife being discussed in this article- as they have all of Europe's governments in their back pocket, and want (demand) that Putin be there too.
