    Methinks that, for the good of the country, it is time that the “Alt-Right,” those bitterly hostile to our Latin-America population, stop and think. There is a difference between opposing further immigration, a good idea, and constantly attacking American citizens. Many good reasons existed for preventing massive immigration from the south. But it happened. Some...

    Why do you keep peddling this? No one is buying. No heart or mind is being won.

    I think you ought to write a column about why you keep on writing this sort of thing. Who is your audience exactly?

    What kind of anything are you a proponent of exactly? As nearly as I can tell you don't like immigration, except from South of the border, and you can't get enough of that.

    But at the same time you couldn't drive a razor blade between you and any alt righter on black dynsfunction.

    So you aren't really going to get a "progressive" readership.

    But see, you can be so iconoclastic that no one gets you. And I think you are there.

    Christ, I don't even think you could get Mexicans in America to go along with your program.

    As far as Hispanics go, they work, they are Christian, they are family oriented and they are generally happy people and they WANT to be part of America as it was. Hispanics born here, or who are in the system as working towards citizenship should be allowed to stay. NO govt. $$$ for ANY non-citizens.
    NO muslims ever. Their religion precludes them from assimilating,.

    Hail:

    The Holtzbrinck Group continues their mission of spreading (ie, propagandizing) their biased version of the truth.

    Recently in the news:

    https://www.thewrap.com/fcc-sinclair-broadcasting-fine/

    “Sinclair Broadcast Group is an American telecommunications company that is owned by the family of company founder Julian Sinclair Smith. Headquartered in Hunt Valley, Maryland, the company is the largest television station operator in the United States by number of stations, and largest by total coverage; owning and/or operating a total of 193 stations across the country (233 after all currently proposed sales are approved) in over 100 markets (covering 40% of American households), many of which are located in the South and Midwest. Sinclair also owns four digital multicast networks (Comet, Charge!, Stadium, and TBD) and one cable network (Tennis Channel), and owns or operates four radio stations (all based in the Pacific Northwest region).”

    The reason, I like others here, stopped reading Scientific American is that it ceased being either Scientific or American decades ago. The magazine was bought by a left wing German company and quickly became unrecognizable. In the old days major scientists published largely politics free articles on their research interests. Then it became just another pop science magazine like "Discovery" but with a strong ideological bent.

    Sold in 1986 to Holtzbrink Publishing. Soros connections.

    Wiki: ” Few Americans realize that two German Gesellschaften are gaining stranglehold on US books.” Thus, the German media influences Kaplan writes about is also tied up with book publishing as well. Holtzbrinck Publishers and Bertelsmann control most of the big name publishing houses and a sizable market share of all the books produced in the United States. Bertelsmann is a media colossus that has been described as a “state within a state.” Bertelsmann played no small role in the dramatic rise of both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.”

    Bertelsmann is now the de facto Soros/NWO entity in Germany providing policy guidance to Angela Merkel's administration.

    Bertelsmann also provides Internet censorship and intimidation services for Zuckerberg's Facebook, Twitter, Google and others.

  • After more than a year of incriminating media coverage, less than half of Americans (49 percent) believe it's “likely” that Donald Trump committed a crime connected to Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.

  • Since the beginning of the twentieth century one of the newer art forms and expressions of our culture has been cinema—“motion pictures.” It was the novelty of live theater and acting captured as moving images in film and presented on a screen.

    Yeah, because those noble Indians didn’t get horses or women or whatever else they wanted by killing rival tribes.

    Why are white peoples the only ones required to grovel for doing what almost every people did who were capable?

    Exactly, as noted here (UNZ) before, locomotive and repeating rifles versus primatives with sharpened stones on arrows. The modern version of US History is just “America was built by negros after it was stolen from the Indians.” America will be unrecognizable in the “history” books our great-grandchildren will be exposed to.

    That’s what Jilles Dykstrra keeps posting after every article, the same old same old White Americans are evil monsters who stole Indian land while we Europeans never hurt anyone.

    There are 3 times more Indians today than there were 400 years ago, hardly genocide.

  • @Jason Liu
    I think this author is on the wrong site. None of those countries have "radical right" governments. Right wing radicals believe in social hierarchy regardless of wealth distribution.

    “Radical” is a term that needs to be redefined. Like “racist”.
    For news outlets to return to honest, documentable fact reporting would be “radical”, but welcome.

  • Once upon a time in America the ruling dwarves, mostly psychologists, sociologists, academics, and suchlike riffraff, held that all people were equal in everything, that men and women were identical, as were all races, ethnic groups, and cultures.

    Reed is a constant apologist for Mexicans because he married one and lives in Mexico. He thinks prosperity increases IQ. But IQ is like a water glass. Some races get a tumbler and others a shot glass. You can pour all you want into it but it will only hold so much. Those people south of the border benefit from western technology just as those do in Africa and Asia. But they didn't invent any of it. They use it but never imagined, much less invented it. Every society has a few very bright or very ruthless people at the top. But in America, before the 60's and affirmative action, mass immigration, etc. we had a very large white middle class that was a continual source of inventiveness and relative prosperity. With the advent of socialism/communism/liberalism, we are descending into third world status where minorities rule - Jews, blacks, asians and hispanics.

    Reed is essentially a fraud. He can't deal with Mexico being a country of low IQ people who are only able to use other's technology. Ask him what have hispanics invented in the last 100 years. The answer is nothing. What have blacks invented in the last 100 years? Nothing. What have asians invented in the last 100 years. Nothing.

    Is there anything in the last 2 years Fred has been on the “right” side of?
    Using his example, I assume the “number system” they invented was NOT so amazing or difficult, just novel.

    The idea of "attempting to hold a public conversation" is just another way of attempting to reassert control of The Narrative by forcing some PC strictures down our collective throats.

    Earth-to-Stephen Marche: There isn't any "male misbehavior." There is misbehavior by certain, specific males--who've been named. It's not a mystery. It's been going on for millennia. It's called the power of dominance. Every political identity group, today, is attempting to assert power in the public arena and private sphere in the exact same way--by dominance.

    It's frequently unattractive. But so be it.

    On one hand, we can’t assume the guilt of the accused just on a womans “say so”. On the other, it would be nearly impossible (short of video, pics, witnesses) for a woman to PROVE. I think all employers who fired men on allegations alone need to be sued.

    Women in the workplace should be required to wear bodycams--front and rear.

    This will both act as a tremendous deterrent, and when there is an accusation, provide a record of the complete interaction. Which will be both enlightening, and I think in most cases--though not for the Weinstein types--not at all what women would have you believe.

    Now anyone who claims that white Americans today are violent racists obviously would be wrong, statistically, sociologically, and morally, as uh someone else might well point out.

    I wonder though if an African American made that claim about white racism and violence anytime prior to say 1960 or 1970 would've been that far off the mark? In another post of mine elsewhere on this blog, I argued that one of the reasons why all of us are having to suffer through the madness of our politically correct and quite frankly batshit crazy contemporary society, including having to see men like Coates endlessly feted as the second coming of Jesus Christ, is because of prior bad behavior on the part of whites in this country, what with slavery and Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan and the likes. This prior bad behavior is precisely the reason why all of us will now hear till the End of Time that racism and privilege are what's holding back blacks today. If only whites back in the day would've acted like decent human beings towards blacks instead of obviously discriminating against them, then the success or failure of blacks would be upon their own shoulders and we wouldn't endlessly have to hear all sorts of convoluted excuses for their behavior. It's kind of like how the prior extremely bad behavior that was the Holocaust means that now all of us will have to hear about anti-Semitism as well till the End of Time.

    How many other sane and good things have been ruined and taken away from the rest of us good folks in this country because of this prior bad behavior on the part of whites? One of the most egregious things is that Asian American immigrants to this country have to deal with many of the social repercussions of all this madness. Black on Asian crime is one of those big things that few very media outlets will have an honest discussion about. And in a classic case of projection, East Asians are often slandered as being racist towards blacks when simply many of them have what I've described as a no-nonsense Confucian mentality that couldn't be further away from the kind of racial essentialism that characterizes so many blacks and whites in this country today.

    I think the creators and supporters of ” slavery and Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan” are looking particularly prescient, especially given the advantage of hindsight.

    One of the most insightful quotes I've read.

    Suppose you were a white person with a deep-seated dislike for black people, and you were intent on training your son to feel the same way. Suppose that, day after day, week after week, you instructed him to study the details of every instance of black-on-white crime. Say you advised your son to extrapolate from these incidents the notion that black people are generally dangerous, and that your zeal to present him with disturbing anecdotes along these lines never waned.

    You would be wrong, in just about every possible way: statistically, sociologically, morally. You would be doing your son a gross and damaging disservice. For yourself you would invite, and earn, broad contempt. If your opinions became publicly known, you might well find yourself unwelcome in polite company and your job at risk. Indeed, the National Review contributor John Derbyshire was fired for expressing such sentiments in a blog post three years ago.

    And yet for harboring roughly the same level of suspicion, fear, mistrust, distaste, and unease about whites as Derbyshire does about blacks, the essayist and blogger Ta-Nehisi Coates has found himself crowned America’s leading civic thinker.
     
    Mr. Derbyshire will deny this equivalence noted now by at least 3 people on the basis that well strictly speaking his observations about blacks are factually correct. And he paid lip service to how obviously out of 40 million blacks in this country some of them are okay. I mean uh the Bell Curve suggests that 1/6 of blacks are smarter than your average white person, right?

    Yes, you can match up some of my sentences with some of the professor’s. But the overall tone and cast of my article are quite different from his.
     
    Ha ha ha. Anyone who's semi-followed your writings over the years gets the clear and distinct impression that your big thing is warning all of us endlessly about the Black Menace. I mean when numerous outsiders, including those who aren't particularly big fans of political correctness, reading your writings all come to the same conclusion, i.e. that you don't seem to like blacks all that much, in the same way that Ta Nehisi Coates or Ekow Yankah give the clear and distinct impression that they don't like white people that much, maybe it's time to reassess whether or not your words are being misconstrued?

    If you don't dislike blacks, then you're probably doing a terrible job of conveying that fact by obsessing endlessly over them and the supposed Black Menace that's coming for us all.

    That being said, the unfortunate thing is that men like Coates or Yankah basically get worshiped and feted by our PC society for obsessing endlessly over whites and the White Menace. If there was any justice in this world, we'd treat them the same way we would a John Derbyshire.

    …except, of course, that the FACTS overwhelmingly support Derbs arguments.

    Why do people think it's such an effective insult to tell white Americans they HAVE TO GO BACK... to Europe?

    If we agreed to extreme nativism where everyone had to go back to where their ancestors lived before 1500, and we restored North America to the indigenous peoples, white liberals would be the biggest winners.

    June 2015: Luxembourg votes not to give foreigners national voting rights

    Luxemburgers have resoundingly rejected a proposal to let foreign residents vote in national elections, a move that would have been a first in Europe and could have expanded the electorate of the tiny but cosmopolitan Grand Duchy by as much as 50 percent.

    In Sunday's consultative referendum, only about 22 percent supported the proposal, part of a modernizing agenda backed by liberal Prime Minister Xavier Bettel.

    There were also clear majorities against lowering the voting age to 16 from 18 and introducing 10-year term limits for ministers, following the 19-year rule of Bettel's conservative predecessor Jean-Claude Juncker, now the EU's chief executive.

    ...

    Dozens of business leaders had signed a newspaper advert this week describing votes for foreigners as "a unique opportunity for Luxembourg and no danger to Luxemburgers".

    Note that "liberal" here means old-school economic/liberal (as opposed to conservative or socialist or communist), not american liberal.

    A triple-yes vote was massively pushed by the establishment (especially left/green) and appeals to vote NO declared as deplorable/tardigrade.

    The Russian Hacking was big news because it was the last gasp for a rationale to gum up the Electoral College vote today. Russian hacking is a purely partisan, Democratic ploy. So lets have big Congressional hearings on insecure computer servers and hacked emails of ... who was that? Hillary Clinton. This will disappear in a New York minute as soon as anyone starts digging into the Democrat's junk. Sample questions: Were Podesta's emails altered or faked? Or were they his actual emails? Are we sure? How sure? He couldn't have actually said that, no? He REALLY said that? And on and on.

    The mere use of 'Hillary Clinton' and 'Email' in the same sentence will create a pavlovian response and the next word is what? Even Nancy Pelosi will hear the word JAIL in some crevice of her demented mind.

    This isn't going anywhere.

    Meanwhile, there is a taxcut to fight over. There won't be time to even consider it given the rush to the trough for the various interests.

    And anyway -- Trump isn't going to cut military budgets. But he will gladly -- along with congressional whores of all parties -- put more money into anti-terror cyber stuff. It's way more profitable than building an airplane. Profit margins higher. And its impossible to determine if it works or it doesn't work. An airplane has to fly, no? Cyber intelligence? I dunno -- it can never be proven one way or the other unless there is a massive failure, and then it can never be proven who actually screwed up.

    Trump isn't the sort to 'take one for the team' and will instinctively blame Obama and Bush and Hillary and search for something that looks less like guaranteed failure. There is nothing left in the Middle East to do that doesn't have failure written all over it.

    And the last thing he will tolerate is Paul Ryan and Company trying to cram a big Russian sanctions package down his throat. Plus -- get real -- anyone with any sense knows the smart play is the US plus Russia vs China.

    In the 1970's we were treated to pervasive Malthusian concepts (the Club of Rome stuff and the Paul Erlich-Julian Simon debate were great examples) and under socionomic theory this is exactly what you'd expect when social mood, measured by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, was well into a bearish phase.

    Interest in eugenics undoubtedly experienced a surge during the 1970's, too, notwithstanding the echoes of good-feels from the Civil Rights Era (which took place at the end of a massive upswing in social mood.)

    Today's resurgence of interest in innate biological differences (including intelligence and its heritability) coincides with a period of mixed social mood. While barometers of social mood like the stock market are at all time highs, other "sociometers" are clearly in bear market territory. Under these conditions we'd expect lots of controversy, and we have it.

    Since social mood exhibits a clear pattern of ups and downs, and we've been in a massive "up" for a very long time (since around 1980), the embrace of "we can do anything" is vast, reflected by vehement social rejection of limits such as templates like IQ and its relationship to things we can't change.

    Unless nature has been repealed, stocks will eventually experience a bear market commensurate with the bull market that preceded it. This will coincide with an equally large bear market in social mood, which will be characterized by the same kinds of thinking that was popular in the 1970's (and the 1930's.)

    Today's popular rejection of the heritability of socially challenging attributes will be overturned, and a resurgence of belief in the relative immutability of people as they are will in all likelihood become very entrenched.

    HBD, the heritability of intelligence and such are slated to be very, very popular again.

    “HBD, the heritability of intelligence and such are slated to be very, very popular again.”

    "We need to split into a Red USA and a Blue USA."

    People make too much of these maps, which are an artifact of how the media covers the presidential results and the electoral college.

    Most states really don't deviate too far from the national popular vote. But in close elects, they have to go to one side or another, but the actual margins are not that small. Four out of the last five presidential elections, or five out of the last seven going back to 1992, have seen national popular vote margins of under 5%. There have been periods of history where that has been the norm, but between 1920 and 1984, national landslides with large popular vote margins and not much deviation became common.

    Since the 1990s, the split has increasingly been metropolitan area vs outside large metropolitan area (or rural), due largely to the Clintonite Democratic strategy of abandoning working class white voters, who have been priced out of most of the metropolitan areas, and going after suburban voters. The most recent election was the high point of this split. We will see if the Donks double down or back away from this, and if the Republicans seize the obvious opening with white working class voters (you get the impression that Republican establishment doesn't really want anything to do with them either).

    Anyway, if you go by the 2000 map, which had a similar popular vote -electoral vote reversal, the states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania flipped to the GOP, while New Hampshire, Virginia, Colorado, and Nevada flipped to the Donks. This is pretty interesting in itself, but the point is that these things are not really that stable. Except for Michigan, these states plus Ohio and Florida, and maybe North Carolina and Oregon, were always on everyone's list of purple/ swing states.

  • @anon
    The current HUD strategy forces white property owners to act as guidance councilor's, and low security prison guards for dysfunctional blacks who might eventually assimilate enough to be functional and accountable to modern civilization, as well as unassimilated blacks who never will be functional beyond the concept of primitive tribes.

    Essentially, white folks are far more apt to call the police on misbehaving black neighbors, than the blacks in ghetto neighborhoods would, not because they're black, but because they're acting, in some way, like stupid assholes. Loud boom box music, fights in the middle of the street, yelling out to occupied parked cars from their balconies at 1 am in the morning, breaking into parked cars, and burglarizing homes in their own neighborhood–all the stuff poor blacks love–piss off the middle-class whites they're being shipped to. So legitimate white homeowner's become de facto low security prison guards thanks to their own sense of self-preservation as home owners in the community.

    Successful homeownership requires personal accountability. Too many blacks cannot manage a home, as far as maintaining the property, paying property taxes, mortgages in a timely manner, etc. On their own, they will never be home owners, nor should they be. Homeownership is not for everyone. It's actually kind of a second job.

    Too many blacks lack the aptitude to be competitive in the private sector, so government jobs are available for them to make a good wage with far less chance of getting fired.

    CONCLUSION: HUD and clerical government jobs are our nation's "short bus" for blacks. It allows them to fake success, while keeping them out of prison, or perpetually homeless.

    The proponents of this two-punch social engineering scheme to bring a significant number of dumb blacks to heel is based on the contention that it's far cheaper and easier to do it this way than simply letting them sink or swim on their own merit, since many would quickly sink, and the ultimate destiny for most would be a prison cell.

    It's better (cheaper) to have upended neighborhoods, forced servitude of community whites having to manage living amongst them, and long lines at the DMV, than to give blacks equal opportunity.

    Can anyone think of better ways to keep "difficult black people" out of the prison system, besides welfare grants and virtually fire-proof union-protected jobs?

    If Carson significantly cuts HUD handouts, he should initiate building more prisons first, because they'll be a-comin'. It's a big reason many blacks aren't in prison now.

    They just can't hack it, without government assistance.

  • @anonguy

    I’ve shared with [X] that Trump talks about his sex life a lot more than other alpha males. My hypothesis is sex with strangers grosses him out but is contrary to the image he wants to project. A guy who is a tee-totaler workaholic is pretty boring in general, so he compensates with perception.
     
    I'm not buying this either. IMO, he is a lifelong fan/connoisseur of female beauty, for example, all the beauty contest stuff, that isn't just window dressing.

    Anyhow, you can be plenty promiscuous without having sex with "strangers", it often doesn't take very long to find a spark with a compatible person after which point they are no longer a stranger.

    I would guess in that vein that Trump, like most healthy people, enjoys sex most in the context of a larger romantic relationship however fleeting and tenuous it might be. I'd be surprised if he ever had much of a pattern of call girls a la Spitzer.

    I'm not sure his talking about sex more than most guys who are successful with women signifies anything. Generally, he talks about a lot of stuff in very vivid fashion that gets everyone's attention.

    Hint: this is not an accident.

    Anyhow, at this point, I'm unconvinced that the way he talks about sex has more significance about his attitudes towards sex than it does about how he talks/negotiates about everything.

    That 55% of Clinton's voters were white leaves a lot of room for the GOP to practice 'identity' politics. The GOP could also use its dominance in state legislatures to ban voting by felons.

Doing this would make it very hard for the Democrats to flip states Trump won.

    From PCR:

    Some believe that Trump is a ruse conducted by the Oligarchy. However, as Hillary is the bought-and-paid-for representative of the Oligarchy, such an elaborate ruse is unnecessary. It is preferable for the Oligarchy to win on its own platform than to install a president on the opposite platform and then change him around. Another sellout increases the anger of the people. If Hillary had won, the Oligarchy would have had the voters’ mandate for their platform.

    Trump may not be able to defund sanctuary cities all by himself, but Republicans do control both houses of Congress, and do you think that even an open-borders Republican like Paul Ryan will oppose cutting off Federal funds to sanctuary cities? Such cities aren't run by Republicans or represented by them in Congress. It should be easy to get such a measure through Congress by attaching it to an appropriations bill.

OTOH, that was at the beginning of Ford's term of office, so maybe it was more of a "prosecution pre-emption" than a true pardon, i.e., Ford was indicating that he would pardon any conviction, so there was no point in prosecuting. Because Ford still had a couple of years left in office, this deterrent was credible.

I would guess that the state's secrets being protected are more about the direct disinformation that is in them than any real state secret. The FBI was seeing crime before they got let in on the truth. Now they have to exonerate HRC to cover up their blunder. I think it must be that the state secrets that got hacked were very important for the hackers to believe, and the subterfuge must not be suspected.

On the one hand, they may have some material available that will be quite damaging and they want to give the candidates (and the public) a heads up. On the other hand, if they had nothing worthwhile in the queue, I'm not sure why they would use this medium to announce it. The whole thing seems very strange.

    Of course, no one here is in favor of more Clinton. But even so I cannot figure this out. I cannot see how anyone can construe this as innocuous.

    Africa, they say, will reap a “demographic dividend” as its bulging youth population drives innovation and consumer markets — as happened to Asia in decades past.
     
    The Effects of ‘Youth Bulge’ on Civil Conflicts

    http://www.cfr.org/world/effects-youth-bulge-civil-conflicts/p13093

    Between 1970 and 1999, 80 percent of civil conflicts occurred in countries where 60 percent of the population or more were under the age of thirty, according to the PAI report. Today there are sixty-seven counties with youth bulges, of which sixty of them are experiencing social unrest and violence.
     

    Does religion also play a contributing factor?
    Yes. Young people “are often drawn to new ideas and heterodox relations, challenging older forms of authority,” writes Goldstone. But Gavin says “religion can provide an outlet that is constructive and allows youth to build social networks and find a sense of identity.” In the Muslim world, experts say large populations of idle youth are especially prone to virulent strands of Islam as an alternative force for social mobility. Of the twenty-seven largest youth-bulge societies in the world, thirteen are Muslim, according to Heinsohn.
     

    What are some policy prescriptions to combat youth bulge?

    Improve access to family planning measures. Improved reproductive health care and better access to family-planning measures, such as contraception programs, have proven effective in places like Iran, where births dropped from over six children per woman in 1979 to two per woman today. Better education programs for women can also help control the sizes of families and cause lower fertility rates.
     
    Interestingly, median age in the USA was about 20 years young/old in 1860, just shortly before the breakout of the Civil War:

    Declining fertility and mortality rates also have led to a sharp rise in the median age of our Nation’s population — from 20 years old in 1860 to 34 in 1994.
     
    – https://www.census.gov/population/socdemo/statbriefs/agebrief.html

    Another interesting observation is, that in the 1960s the USA median age actually briefly dropped from 29.5 to 28.1 years http://www.statista.com/statistics/241494/median-age-of-the-us-population/ , to eventually rise again to 30 years by 1980. This was caused by the post World War 2 U.S. Baby Boom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_boomers

    In my opinion, this is the most likely explanation for what started and fueled the student/youth protests/revolts of the late 1960s and early 1970s: http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/history-archaeology/student-movements-1960s

    For example, in 2012, Vienna’s Jewish community demanded an investigation into the remarks made by the anti-Muslim Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache and his associate Klaus Nittmann.

    When the Jews and country’s leaders were attending the annual Holocaust memorial service – White-supremacists held a ball at the Viennese palace which attracts guests who include the anti-Jew fringe. Hundreds of Jews and non-White people gathered against the event. Police recorded only isolated violent incidents on Friday from demonstrators outside the Viennese palace.

    Heinz-Christian Strache was quoted as saying the protests reminded him of Kristallnacht and the far-right ball-goers were “the new Jews.”

    Freedom Party’s former popular leader, Jorg Haider, was allegedly assassinated by Israeli Mossad in a “car crash” on October 11, 2008. Only 16 days earlier, Haider had blamed the Zionist bankers for world’s problems for which he was awarded the title of being ‘anti-Semite’ by Israeli lobby Anti-Defamation League (ADL) even though Haider’s No.2 man, Peter Sichrovshky, was Jewish. On October 16, 1996, Sichrovsky was elected as one of six members of the European Parliament on the Freedom Party ticket.

    Three-years-ago, following Israel-Firster Swiss MP Geert Wilders, Strache also had demanded that the Austrian parliament pass a ban on minaret construction and Muslim Hijab – it was hailed a good sign by the Zionist media in the West. In 2010, the Freedom Party even produced a video game, “Bye Bye Mosque”, which had drawn sharp criticism from Austria’s Social Democrats, Green Party and Muslim community....

    I once had a heavy drinking philosopher friend who once explained to me that the fundamental truth of philosophy, especially as it pertains to ethics, is that reality is a football, and the key is to ensure that you argue in such a way that you always can keep possession of it.

    "Implicit bias" is just a way of saying that the person wielding it has possession of the reality-football.

    "Did it ever occur to you that that the way you act is because of your implicit bias?"

    "What implicit bias? I'm not a racist."

    "I'm sorry, smh, the key to implicit bias is that you are unaware of it. In fact, to the extent that you are unaware of it is the proof of the extent to which you are a victim of it."

    "So --- I have implicit bias?!"

    "Yes."

    (BTW, the same strategy has been used to bed coeds for over a century.)

    There's more, I will return to the topic .....

    “Researchers in this growing field say it isn’t just white police officers, but all of us, who have biases that are subconscious, hidden even to ourselves.”

    Sort of like that subtle, barely noticeable, BLM slogan: “Kill All Whites” ??

    Great ideas, and I applaud you, except:

    "Any politically viable proposal would need to offer permanent residency and perhaps eventual citizenship to individuals who have already lived in the United States for many years, had no criminal record, and possessed strong ties to the local community, such as American-born family members."

    Another amnesty? After the last one caused another 50 million to flood across? What about the millions who legally applied and are still waiting for their legal entry? And no criminal record doesn't mean no criminal activity. Illegal entry is a crime. Applying for a job is a crime. Not filing federal and state income tax returns is a crime. Applying for benefits with another's SSN or a TIN is a crime. And then you run into Obama's edicts that misdemeanors are not really crimes, and neither are "non-serious" felonies.

    And what about the billions of dollars of unpaid hospital bills for things like child birth? Few can live illegally in the USA for years without engaging in criminal activity. Moreover, what message does another amnesty send to the billions of prospective illegal immigrants throughout the world? Finally, what about the millions of poor Americans denied a job because it was given to a foreigner who came here illegally?

    All this is summed up in basic parenting: You cannot reward bad behavior! Illegal means illegal. Deport. And if they choose to abandon their children, it reflects their values, or desperation. Perhaps the world's richest man, Mexico's Carlos Slim, owner of our New York Times, can employ them in Mexico!

    Another amnesty means another 20 million border jumpers over the next decade. The last thing this USA needs in this era of automation are more unskilled workers! Be humane, send them home.

    ……and all those illegals will leave rather than take a $15/hr job ????

    Trump's job last night was not to win, but to make himself appear less distasteful to cuck suburban whites than Hillary. That's it.

    He did so. Mission accomplished.

    People saying that Trump "lost" don't understand the purpose of Presidential debates.

    From the Baltimore Gazette:

    Earlier last week an NBC intern was seen hand delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign headquarters, according to sources. The package was not given to secretarial staff, as would normally happen, but the intern was instead ushered into the personal office of Clinton campaign manager Robert Mook. Members of the Clinton press corps from several media organizations were in attendance at the time, and a reporter from Fox News recognized the intern, but said he was initially confused because the NBC intern was dressed like a Fed Ex employee.

    The reporter from Fox questioned campaign staff about the intern, but campaign staff at first claimed ignorance and then claimed that it was just a Fed Ex employee who had already left. No reporters present who had seen the intern dressed as a Fed Ex employee go into Mook’s office saw him leave by the same front entrance. The Fox reporter who recognized the intern also immediately looked outside of the campaign headquarters and noted that there were no Fed Ex vehicles parked outside.

    Clinton seemed to have scripted responses ready for every question she was asked at the first debate. She had facts and numbers memorized for specific questions that it is very doubtful she would have had without being furnished the questions beforehand. The entire mainstream media has specifically been trying to portray Trump as a racist and a poor candidate. By furnishing Clinton with the debate questions NBC certainly hoped to make Clinton appear much more knowledgeable and competent than Trump. And though it is unlikely that anyone will be able to conclusively prove that Clinton was given the debate questions, it seems both logical and likely.

    ______ may face an additional investigation related to his voting record and citizenship status...

    ...elections officials say the state’s elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system.
     

    So what is the penalty for violating an honor system in today's world? Maybe he will no longer get to have dinner at the club. We know for certain there is no penalty for having the wrong citizenship status; on the contrary: he will now have even more status. "Poor _______. A dreamer. Coming here to do our work. Let cut him some slack. Buy him some more ammo."

    “Therefore elections officials say the state’s elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system.”

    As does Disability, welfare, unemployment…..virtually ALL govt programs, even tax returns for the most part.

    We are a nation that runs on the honor system, comprised of dishonorable people.

    Nope, disability either at the state level or feds requires a metric ass load of verification. I have noticed that it is easier to get for women and minorities and has tightened up in the last six or seven years but still requires way, way more verification than to vote.

    Voting on the other hand...probably as easy to get as an abortion for a thirteen year old.

    Tax audits are well known; for unemployment you have to show proof you were released from a job; there are substantial forms to fill out for welfare, with declarations of wealth that can be checked.

    We pointedly do not check on people's voting eligibility.

    I think online Trump supporters tend to overplay the man's wit and underestimate his narcissism. I've read plenty of good responses of things Trump COULD HAVE said to deflect on women, birtherism, etc. but none that actually sound like something he would say. Trump ALWAYS takes this bait instead of dismissing it with a quip.

    For me the low point was when he spent nearly 5 minutes giving us the origin story of birtherism, only to say he was proud that he personally forced Obama to provide his birth certificate. He started out well as you mentioned, but simply throwing the albatross around Clinton's neck was enough. Even if Holt (don't get me started) pressed the issue, he could have simply brushed it off and said he had changed his mind and it wasn't important. But apparently Obama's birth certificate is the hill he wants to die defending.

    I don't think the foreign policy segment went as poorly as you seem to, but I agree it is remarkable that he didn't mention who actually voted for the Iraq war. His "seize the oil" remarks, while correct, probably should have been phrased better ("work with the people of Iraq to rebuild their country so it isn't a haven for terrorists" maybe?). And with regards to working with Muslim leaders, didn't Trump have a successful meeting with al-Sisi just last week? No mention of it, at all.

    In general I'm not thinking this debate changes the race very much: no one really expected him to win, he didn't completely flub it, and he has had good momentum this past week. I am concerned by how nervous he seemed, though. I can understand blowing off debate prep because you think these things are worthless (and you would be correct) but then you have to bring the swagger to back that up. Trump didn't deliver. He seemed defensive and weak. It was kinda like being a little kid and watching your dad get beat up.

    Assuming white police officers are more likely to shoot black defendants resisting arrest when statistics show they are not. Trump needs to make this an issue.

    I agree with you both. Trump needs to expose the statistics, blame Dem leadership, ask HOW increasing immigration will help the black community, ask them if they are better off racially or economically in the last 8 years ?
