    Last month I posted on a realistically alarmist new book (in French) by Duke professor Stephen Smith, who has made most of his career reporting on Africa for French publications: Now French supremo Emmanuel Macron has given an interview recommending Smith's book on what Macron calls (in translation) Africa's "bombshell" population growth. Meanwhile, however, the...
  • @PiltdownMan

    I wouldn’t be surprised if when Macron and Bill Gates get together, they talk about this in private. Deep down, Gates is an old-fashioned rich WASP population controller in the old Rockefeller/Bush mode.
     
    The Gates funded center at Johns Hopkins is named The Bill Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health.

    That's unusual these days.

    Unlike in the 1960s and 1970s, when the population explosion was what concerned left liberals busied themselves with when talking about issues facing poor countries, explicit mention of population studies alongside contraception is now taboo. On the left, this is because it is no longer pc for rich white Western nations to dictate to poor, non-white nations about population. That's practically eugenics. On the religious right, funding of reproductive health/fertility clinics is taboo.

    But I'm quite sure that Bill and Melinda Gates, who grew up in that earlier time, keep population growth very much in mind, even as they go about funding "health initiatives" in the Third World.

    There is truth about what you say about both the left and right. Pat Buchanan and Laura Ingrham are good on illegal immigration but because their both devoted Catholics they opposed any birth control as abortion.

  • From the Los Angeles Times: San Diego is, at the moment, the largest city in
  • @Lot
    San Diego is the largest city in the USA without water fluoridation. Also the largest without a dental school, NBA team, NFL team, and the largest non sanctuary city.

    The last Democrat mayor was a pre-MeToo casualty of groping. His gropes included several women over the age of 70 and the average was about 55.

    No water fluoridation, San Diego way back in the 1960′s had John Birchers like Orange County and voted for Barry Goldwater. Non-Sanctuary city, the Superviors join Orange County supervisors on this, I told everyone that not all Ca is progressive Democratic like Vdare and National Review says it is eventually some of it will reverse from the Democrats since in Ca they are pushing the more progressive wing.

    Well... having been born in St. Louis and raised in the St. Louis metro area and having lived for several years in San Diego, I can safely say that there is a great deal "more Christianity" in St. Louis than in San Diego. Indeed, I found out as an adult that the fact that California is "unchurched" is a long-standing result in sociology.

    Other than that, your analysis of St. Louis vs. San Diego sounds plausible.

    San Diego like Orange County has a lot of the evangelical megachruches. People that are religious in San Diego are probably more devoted than in St Louis because its by choice not culture.

  • At the Los Angeles Times, Asian lady reporter Anh Do has figured out a pretty entertaining schtick: recording Asian NIMBYs in Irvine, CA (the upscale planned suburb near the beach that's home to UC Irvine) saying crass things about Southern California's growing infestation of bums and junkies that make the Asians sound slightly to the...

    Related article on Irvine demographics:

    https://www.ocregister.com/2016/09/21/why-asians-have-become-the-dominant-group-in-irvine-and-what-that-means-for-the-city/

    Asians only barely outnumber whites, and if you take out the transient student population, I bet the majority of homeowners are still non-Hispanic whites, like my favorite liberal Kevin Drum who has lived there for decades.

    So this is specifically a movement of the minority of Irive homeowners who are NE Asian.

    (San Diego and Orange County don't have significant South Asian populations. It is a striking difference to see roughly equal numbers of Indians and NE Asians in Silicon Valley, it is more like 10-1 Panda/Tiger ratio around here.)

    Orange County white liberals suck. They are the ones complaining the most. The homeless are a mixed of drug addicts and people that can’t afford the rent. Some are from the OC and others come from other places. Its good to see the Asians fighting back since the shelter should be in Santa Ana. Being nice to the homeless in California has caused it to grow. One can feel sorry for people because of the high rent but the homeless problem is even worst in La or the Bay Area where they are nicer to homeless people.

  • @Meretricious
    professor of social psychology? LOL. We all know how "replicable" those studies are.

    This article by Sailer is silly. The left has already lost on immigration since wages for low skilled jobs are slightly increasing and folks in Orange County have went against Brown on protecting illegal immigrants that committed crimes. Basically, the left has lost on immigration and won somewhat on the gun issue since they used mess demonstrations on to get their way. Also, high income left wing cities have very high murder rates which works against the left in the long term. The left is going to use anti-trust laws against the tech giants which means places like San Jose, San Francisco, and Seattle will laid off thousands of workers. This money around for pro-immigration propaganda. The left is out in the next decade because they are basically with the gun law demonstrations going back to their old tricks that don’t worked.

  • From Bloomberg:
  • @Anon7
    It occurred to me today that we effectively have formed a European Union-style labor pool with Mexico. When the US economy is doing well more workers come north, keeping wages low. When the economy tanks, like it did in 2008, workers go home to see what they can find.

    I don’t recall approving a treaty or other agreement...

    Send them home. Every damned one of them.

    Well, in a way you can’t fault Mexico for looking out for their interest. Lots of money is send home. I think Trump would be smart to pushed Mexico to denationalized Pemex. Mexico main problem is poor oil refineries. Maybe, Trump should get Rick Perry to do this since Texas and Mexico are involved in oil projects.

  • Lots of illegal immigrants themselves say its better under Anglos than Mexico. So, the argument is a bit silly here, Actually, Latinos are not the group being pushed by the Dems now. Mexicans sliightly declined if net immigration and out migration are factor in. If Mexicans don’t marry in the US, they are less likely if they are here illegality to stay. The biggest increase under Obama was Africans. They went from a low 300,00 in 2,000 to almost 2 million by the end of Obama’s administration. The Dems want chain migration more than just legalizing Latinos since the new groups are less Mexicans and Central Americans and more likely to be from Africa or Asia. Both Africans and Asians are more likely to vote Democratic than Republican more so than the Latinos.

    Orwell strike again.

    Because no one is allowed to argue in corporate and official publications that blacks and "Latinos" are worse people to loan money to that whites and Asians, there is no defense from the charge that it is "racism" or "systemic oppression" or "discrimination" preventing blacks and "Latinos" from getting loans at the same rates of Asians and whites.

    Until we are allowed to discuss in public and on TV and in court and in Congress that race and ethnicity are actually and causally connected to things such as violent crime or loan trustworthiness, we will continue to lose. Race is one of the main issues the left has used to push forward a ton of its goals since the 1960s, and they have denied us the viable defenses.

    It's like a murder trial where A kills B during a fight and the judge bars A from arguing self-defense, even though there's video evidence of B pulling out a gun and stating beforehand he was going to goad A into a fight so he could kill him. What are the odds A can escape a guilty verdict?

    A has four bad choices and no good ones: (1) plead guilty and throw himself on the mercy of the court; (2) try some convoluted alternate defense that will be too complicated to make sense to the average person involving a claim that he did not kill B even though B died by A's hand; (3) blaming someone else; or (4) stubbornly claim self-defense even after the court finds him in contempt and tells the jury not to pay attention to A and physically has him gagged for saying it.

    Again, what are the odds A can escape a guilty verdict?

    What are the odds of winning an argument about racism when you can't argue differences in race?

    Very, very few people care one way or the other about abortion. It certainly doesn’t carry over into the voting booth.

    And politicians take great car to avoid advocating one side or another.

    For liberals Jews and feminazis, pro abortion is a fund raising ploy. “ send us money or the evil evangelical republicans will force women to have babies against their will”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The anti abortion people are sincere. They are honest in that they believe life begins at conception and that even IUDs are murder.

    But for most, it’s a non issue.

    And no White person who cares about the future of the White race should be against it because the majority of the abortions are Hispanic and black.

    If you want more non aborted blacks and Hispanics getting affirmative action jobs denied to your children and grandchildren then you are as much a traitor to the White race as Nancy Pelosi and the judges and congress critters who created affirmative action.

    The blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders all other non Whites Jews and billionaire Whites are in the process of wiping out American Whites.

    Ending abortion means more black and Hispanics to be soldiers in the war against Whites.

    To be anti abortion is to be anti White.

    I agree with you to a point but I opposed late term not early abortion. One of the reasons we get so many central Americans is they are either Catholic or Penecostial and against abortion. This means that since these countries are poor they are going to come to the US since they have a labor surplus. Trying to convince Pat Buchanan, Laura Ingraham to support some abortion is difficult.

    Steve, what are you so cheerful about?

    Youre always talking about how so-and-so was wrong about the Latino Wave in 2004. So what?

    Over what timeline are you so sanguine? What do you imagine will happen to Texas and Florida?

    What Republican party are you talking about without Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Arizona, Colorado?

    Show your work. All of the cities in Texas are Democratic. Dallas wasn't always blue and they'll be saying the same about the state of Texas. It's only getting more Latino, more Asian/Indian, more California transplant lib, and less old cowboy by the day. The population trends don't lie. Extremely blue Austin is exploding and the old rural population is collapsing.

    Why are we ever talking about how your analysis shows that Romney's vote totals in Arizona were slightly underrated by whomever?

    How is that relevant to the loss of the country, the nation of heritage Americans as a historical, social, cultural, and political entity?

    Do you imagine you have some larger point here? Like the "doomsayers" are wrong because youre right when it comes to counting how many Latino votes fit on a pinhead?

    Are you aware, at all, that California was lost to heritage-Americans in your lifetime? Lost forever. Gone. America's greatest state, which happened to be the Republican center of power, is no longer part of America. It's magic dirt, alright, and the numbers are real: heritage-Americans have been ethnically cleansed from Ronald Reagan's home. Hell, my Nixon appointee grandfather lived in the beating heart, Orange County, through the 1990s. My children will hear about that like some Palestinian refugee's child being told about the family's once and future olive groves.

    Are you aware that white babies were a minority last year? That this isn't hypothetical?

    Are you aware that the Democratic trend in Texas is real? That it doesn't matter if some idiot like Jorge Ramos predicts the wrong year if you have no reason at all to see the trend reversing?

    Do you understand that your calendar victories don't matter at all?

    Do you get that 28 years from now I'll be younger than you are now? That we aren't talking about geological time scales here?


    How, in detail, does your Overestimated Latino Bias have anything to do with my children having America as a country?

    And if it doesn't have anything to do with that question then why are you talking politics at all? Why not go directly to tee times and cruises and the price of fiddles during a fire? Do you talk to someone with terminal cancer about whether global warming will affect his health in 30 years?

    Anyone who doesn't have an explicit idea of how to REVERSE--NOT SLOW--the demographic meltdown has abdicated any right to voice an opinion. If you fall into this camp, it's time to stop speaking and start listening.

    If you fall into this camp you may NOT:

    Talk about how you need a safe space without white nationalism;

    Explain how you wouldn't have voted for some bills in 1965 so we wouldn't be in this mess right now;

    Say, like Steve, that your "strategy" is to merely assert, like a child, that everything would be fine if everyone were reasonable just like me;

    Duck your responsibilities because you don't want to feel icky;

    Abandon your duty because it will cost you personal comfort, security or wealth.





    Allow me to be clear: everyone must be able to answer these questions. Nobody is responsible for having the perfect tactical plan that will guarantee success. All are required to explicate their reasoning in terms of how it will secure this nation for heritage-Americans and our posterity. If you can't work back from A to B in these terms then you're on the wrong track and the light at the end of your tunnel is coming straight towards us.

    Talking about politics orthogonal to the 14 words is like dancing to architecture. We have been patient with people who prefer clutching pearls but it's becoming impossible to make excuses for those who can see.

    It is time for a choosing.

    Some truth to what you say about the big cities of Texas. I told Briebart that they have to worry more about congressional districts in Harris County than Orange County California. I think both Florida and Texas will be purplish states longer than blue. Its true that Dems can not always count on Latinos, Trump won Kern County Ca at 13 percent better than he did in Harris County Texas which he lost by 13 percent to Clinton. Harris County has more muslims than does Kern County Ca.

    That is surely worse than Mexicans trying to turn California Mexican again.

    Btw, fewer immigrants means the original peoples of America, the Indian or Native Americans, get to keep America a little more red.

    What is the Indian opinion on this matter?

    Indians feel it was a tragedy to lose their lands to whites. But they also feel whites built a great nation.
    So, as long as Americanism was about peace and rapprochement between whites and Indians, it was good for both sides. Whites took land from Indians but recognize Indians as a people with special claim to America. So, whites need to respect Indians and take good care of the precious land, one of triumph for whites and tragedy for Indians.

    But endless massive immigration totally destroys that narrative. And it breaks the covenant between whites and reds. Reds accepted defeat and ceded the land to whites on condition that whites remain good custodians of it.

    But white elites have gone nuts. They're in shopoholic mode. They are despoiling America by flooding it with more and more people. Worse, as American culture is now so decrepit, these new arrivals turn into gross idiots.

    It's one thing to see things as consumer items. Things are bought, used, and disposed all the time.
    But when consumerism becomes the metaphor for everything, then even Americans aren't merely consumers but consumer items themselves. They also exist to be disposed of and replaced by New Americans. Elites really think this way. Statue of Liberty has become a shopoholic lady addicted to acquiring New Americans like some rich shopohlic woman who always has to buy new shoes and dresses. What she has in her closet is boring since they are 'old'. The excitement comes only with getting New Items. Since New becomes Old once they're acquired, there is an endless demand for newer and newer. Americans are no longer people with history and culture. They are either transient consumers or consumer items. Like people in a movie theater must make way for the new audience, white Americans must make way for New Americans. Or white Americans are like a burger in the stomach. It must be pushed out by bowel movement to be replaced by new burgers. They have no right of continuity and history. No people are allowed that except for Jews and Israel.

    This consumer mentality has infected elites when it comes to Americans. They regard existing Americans as old shoes in the closet. They are madly fixated on acquiring new pairs.
    Hardly surprising in a culture dominated by homosexuals insanely obsessed with glitz and fashion. After all, there is no dirtier word than old-fashioned in the fashion world.

    I enjoyed the Takimag piece (especially the reference to Col.

    I actually find the Open Borders mania to be a bit of a mystery. There are some clear factors at play such as the Democrats and their supporters wanting to import more members for the Coalition of the Fringes; the Chamber of Commerce wanting cheap labour; anti-Gentilism; self-hatred; leap-frogging loyalties, etc. But none of these quite add up to what we are seeing now.

    Anyway, possibly the Durbin kerfuffle will cause Trump to realize that the Dems are not negotiating in good faith. To win a second term, he would better off doubling down on immigration restrictionism to the extent it is unilaterally within his power: let DACA die, defund/deactivate the diversity lottery and build thewall. Do things that cannot easily be undone.

    The New Mexico oil production you reference is due to the same factors. Ten years ago much of the activity centered around the production of natural gas from coal bed formations in the northwest corner of the state. Today the emphasis is on oil production from non-conventional shale formations in the southeast corner of the state. The Permian Basin activity that has half of the drilling rigs working in the US operating in the Midland, TX vicinity doesn’t stop at the state line.

It's amazing what they are doing in our schools with the completely one sided curriculum, including AP curriculum. There is no objectivity whatsoever.

    History from middle school on should just be renamed "Grievance Studies". My kids are constantly being told that racism and sexism exist and are the only reasons why blacks and women aren't doing as well as white males. No one is allowed to say "I don't see race" or "I don't care about race", they are told we are now in a "post race blind" world. Our HS Health now includes a WA state mandated discussion on sexual orientation and gender identity, where kids are encouraged to "explore" their sexuality and gender identity and to not conform to society's expectations. Kids are no longer even standing up for the pledge of allegiance and national anthem, and the teachers do not make them.

    Last year a mom in one of the local schools launched a protest when she found her son bringing home Manga comics from his HS library and a teacher's library with lewd graphics of people having sex, and the school librarian refused to take the books out of circulation claiming "censorship".

    It's simply unreal what is happening in our schools. Libtards have completely gone off the deep end not just in our colleges but in K-12, and they are taking all our kids down with them. Parents are afraid to protest because they know the teachers and counselors control their kids' grades and recommendations for colleges. Education is now for the braindead.

    Well, I noticed that there is a shift in once Republican areas that have high income like Orange County Ca and Fort Bend Texas. Is it that once you have the bucks then you eventually become democratic. Think of what happen in Virginia.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan was never a Trotskyist. Peter Berger was never a Trotskyist. Norman Podhoretz was never a Trotskyist. Midge Decter was never a Trotskyist. Joseph Epstein was never a Trotskyist.

    Jackson was, prior to 1968, a perfectly mainstream non-Southern Democrat (though without the machine ties so common farther east). Irving Kristol and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were, ca. 1968, engaged in a critique of social policy more than anything else, a topic about which Jackson had nothing to say. It wasn't until after 1972 that the functional pacifism of the main body of the Democratic Party (manifest in George McGovern and Richard Clark) was subject to critique.

    Yeah, but the 1950′s being equal is a myth. In the 1950′s they allowed more flop houses. So, many people were renters with about 300 to 500 square apartments. Most 1950′s tract houses were about 700 to 800 square feet. Also, the south was still very rural. Overall poverty rate was higher in 1959 than today. The low point was in the early 1970′s, Both the left and right have a romantic view of the 1950′s. Also, many apartments in the 1950′s had a hall bathroom that everyone shared.

The big companies don’t like the smaller rural states which have much higher college graduation rates among those under 30 than the large states.

    Yep. One need only look at real world examples of whites losing their societies. Look at California and Texas where whites went from huge majorities to minorities in ~50 years. Do you see whites rallying together and organizing as a community to resist the Reconquista?

    Of course you don't. They're just fading into oblivion.

    Well, someone (like Fred Reed) might say that Hispanics and whites get along fairly well. (Fred would likely throw in a picture of a very pretty, very Spanish-looking girl to prove how silly us deplorable white nationalist types are. Fred never seems to have any pictures of tattooed MS-13 gang members around when he needs them.)

    Fair enough. And there is some truth to that. But ask 100 whites people anonymously whether they'd rather have their community 90% white/10% Hispanic or 33% white/66% Hispanic, and see what you get.

    Yet, whites do nothing to stop the Hispanic tide rolling in.

    But let's move past the relatively docile Hispanics and look at countries where the non-whites aren't so nice. Let's look at France where Muslims are likely ~15% of births, maybe more. France also has a large number of Africans - sometimes everybody's favorite Muslim Africans.

    Terrorist attacks are so common that they've become blasé. You don't even hear about some on the news because they've become like traffic accidents. Parts of French cities are becoming Muslim strongholds. We also know from history that once a country becomes more than ~20% to 30% Muslim (one generation or so away for France) that very bad things start to happen.

    Do you see the ethnic French rising up en masse? No. Thankfully, some are, but they are beaten back by the majority of white French!

    Well, someone says, the French are still a huge majority of the population so it's hard for them to see what's going on. Hmm, weak but still a point so let's move to a country where whites are literally in danger and literally surrounded.

    Let's look at South Africa where whites are ~8% of the population. White farmers are attacked and killed. Black politicians threaten to confiscate white farms. White South African need only look to Zimbabwe to get a glimpse into their future.

    Are the whites of South Africa banding together? Not in any real sense, no.

    If what's going on in South Africa and France isn't enough to get whites to show some racial solidarity and some fricking backbone, I don't what is. Those are existential threats, and yet whites in those countries continue to fear being called a racist more than they fear losing their homeland, their culture and their people.

    We as a people are doomed! (My only hope is that a small percentage of whites will eventually pull something together, but if that happens, that race of whites will be fundamentally different than what we have now. That pathological altruism gene - may it rot in hell - will have been mostly culled from the herd.)

  • @Yan Shen

    have your nations overwhelmed by immigrants like him and his relatives:
     
    Various commenters such as Moses keep insisting that Asian immigrants are voting with their feet and fleeing to Western nations or something along those lines. This is statistically incorrect. For instance, I pointed out that there are about 5 million Chinese Americans versus 1380 million Chinese on the mainland. That ratio comes out to about .36%. There are very few Japanese who live outside of Japan even in Asia, let alone in a country like the United States. If Asians were voting with their feet, it's pretty clear that the overwhelming majority of them voted to stay in their ethnic homelands. (Ironic fact, Moses himself is an expat who lived and worked in Asia for 10 years! I wonder what he was uh voting with there.)

    There's a stereotype in East Asia that Americans aren't particularly strong quantitatively or are a bit on the innumerate side. Certainly the repeated claims made by various commenters on iSteve that Asian immigrants are overwhelming the United States lend credence to that stereotype.

    On the other hand, I've pointed out that sometimes it may feel like Asian immigrants are overwhelming the United States or that man they're all coming over here due to the vastly disproportionate academic dominance of Asian Americans in the United States! For instance at many elite tech companies in Silicon Valley basically anywhere from 40-50% of workers in tech roles are ethnically Asian.

    True, Asians are less than one thinks unlike Mexicans who have been a high immigrant group to the US for 100 years. Mexico even admits to keeping manufacturing wages down so they can compete against even poorer countries. Why not called their bluff on this. Manufacturing wages in Mexico have dropped to 2.13 an hour versus 3.78 an hour now for China.

    Probably true, Latinos are more working class and some don’t like the competition in the job market from Mexico. Dems started to go the Antifa route which turns off a lot of middle class folks.Also, Trump’s limiting illegal immigration is working since California of all places grew much higher in wages in the first quarter.

    Great point. Ancient, but relevant history in this regard: A few years after blacks burned down Detroit (1967 riots) they made Coleman Young mayor for 20 years, not a "mistake" rather a national catastrophe -- a once great city now a third world hell hole. So it is now too with Baltimore, St. Louis, etc. etc. But like Steve said, too many white people in NYC (and Chicago for that matter) for the third world descent.

    See: http://fosterspeak.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-detroit-riots-of-1967-and-its.html

    Maybe, New York City has higher crime than Anaheim. It has a lot more assaults. I bet in the next decade, the big cities with Latinos will outpaced those with blacks. New York City is also undesirable compared to San Diego, one of the most white big cities and SD has less crime, and higher income. NYC only has Wall Street and there is a movement back to the burbs which is kind of hitting NYC with young people.

In fact New York City does worst on stats against San Diego, San Jose and Seattle, all three big cities with a small poverty group for big cities. Also, New York City crime is a lot worst than Anaheim’s since it has a lot more assault while Anaheim’s is car thief. Its better to have Disneyland than Wall Street.

In fact Trump was a little generous to some of the dreamers making it possible for them to stay up until 2020. Trump also cut a deal with Dems on the debt ceiling, so how anti-minority is he anyway. Not much. Just because a dingbat punches a minority and wears a Swanska on his arm doesn’t mean Trump has anything to do with it. If Trump came out more against the neo-Nazis at Charlottesville the left would be kissing his feet since he made a deal on the debt ceiling and could make a deal on Daca in the future.

  • @Wilkey
    The problem is particularly acute in Texas, where the housing industry has been powered by consistent population and job growth and whose service industries are disproportionately reliant on immigrant labor.

    I actually agree with this. There is a shortage of construction labor. Yet I, all of 41-years-old, can remember in my high school years (and even more recently) passing construction site after construction filled with hardworking rednecks.

    The problem is that the construction companies drove the rednecks away. They sent the message that they weren't interested in hiring legal citizens. Once an industry sends the message that it's not interested in hiring Americans it becomes hard to undo. The rednecks went one of two directions: they went to work for companies that offered benefits, paid vacation, and where getting displaced by an illegal was more difficult, or they dropped out of the labor pool altogether.

    Construction is probably a great gig for guys who didn't like working 52 weeks a year - but only if the pay is decent enough to make up for the long downtime and the lack of benefits. With lower pay and employers not inclined to hire citizens, anyway, it's hard to draw people in. The number of white guys with construction experience is probably in steep decline. And since they aren't working in those fields they aren't passing the skills on to their sons, either. It's a vicious cycle. And the only way to get out of that cycle is to step off of it. The time to step off is now.

    Actually, the pay has went up even in California. I looked at Craig list and drywallers and so forth are going up in pay. Trump has cut some of the newer immigrant labor coming in. About 5 years ago it was common to see 10 an hour for drywallers that have bumped up to 16 and above. Its the Arizona effect when Arizona went to e-verify wages increase 10 percent. I have heard some talk of combing 3- printing with construction work which would get white kids back in the industry.

    The media likes to run stories on Houston's diversity like this one: http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-houston-diversity-2017-htmlstory.html

    The triumphalism over sticking it to those backward Texans can't be contained. From a prof at Steve's alma mater:

    “Suddenly these are 100% American kids, and they’re falling in love with each other, making multiracial babies,” Klineberg said.

    A “psychology of inevitability” begins to set in around immigration, he said — it’s happening, and it might not be a bad thing
     
    He accidentally gives the game away when he says, "Maybe I can make money off of this."

    Houston being more diverse than NYC is always held up as something to be proud of, as if good ol' boys outside the beltway are going to hear that and say, "That'll show them Yankees we ain't racist!" Harris County offering ballots in Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese is the result of a natural (and lucky!) process by which demographics magically change, rather than a byproduct of a deliberate attempt to elect a new people.

    Big deal, Houston is just a cheaper version of Los Angeles. In fact on Briebart someone made a nasty remarked about Phoenix and protest against Trump. Trump had more protesters on his campaign in Houston. Harris County went about 13 percent for Clinton. As I have told Sailer many times, Harris County is not that great. Oklahoma City is actually better for white folks. Phoenix-Maricopia grew in whites only that can not be said for Houston-Harris County. The cheapest housing now for young people is actually in the plains states and not the south. Oklahoma is not cheaper for young people than Texas is.

    Lynchings, from my understanding, were supposed to be an event.
     
    It's me and like 2 other modern Catholics that agree with this point of the teaching, but if there is going to be an execution for crime, it must absolutely be public. If someone is to justly lose their lives for crime, then life is still so precious that the event needs to be used to discourage future crime and death. If a young future criminal hesitates or delays or does something altogether different from seeing the results of crime, then that's the point.

    In other words, all these modern private executions of criminals are not the ideal, even if public executions can have an inappropriate carnival feel at times.

    Lynchings seem to appear in places where the police are unreliable or non-existent. The rural South appears to been very similar to the wild west in terms of policing levels. Except they had to deal with one of the more violent population groups on the planet. Not an excuse for no trial, but lynchings seem less monstrous when placed in context.

    Affluent Boston suburbs, which overwhelmingly vote Democrat, enact building restrictions through open space purchases funded through the Community Preservation Act, as well as through large lot zoning.

They do have funding for affordable housing through the CPA as well but it doesn't do much. I can't say that I blame them. It is a historical region and should be preserved. However, I wish they would just admit their hypocrisy, which of course won't happen.

    Say what you want about the Texas Model but it does seem to work for the working classes.

    I would not picked the Texas model. In North Dallas housing prices have jumped from 20,000 to 100,000 because Collin County is growing fast and lots of professional jobs are going there. Collin County will have more wealth than Marin in 10 years but more poverty since it also gets a lot of Latinos and over minorities and is predicted to be 3 million. Texas zoning is not the best. You can have restricted zoning and slow population growth and be cheap. California’s counties like Kern and Frenso are now cheaper than Collin County.

    Reagan was the luckiest guy in the world. Volcker killed off the inflation (but not in time to save Carter) and the semiconductor industry matured along with the PC industry while the mainframe manufacturers were still viable. This is was what led to a lot of new jobs - especially for digital design EEs and computer programmers. The lack of oversight on the banks by Reagan's administration led to a real estate bubble that ended with the S&L crisis but built a lot of useless commercial real estate which later sold for 30 cents on the dollar.

    I am not a big fan of unions, but shunning unions does not mean the owners couldn’t pay decent wages (Japanese automakers – and the workers themselves for that matter – in the South shun unions too, but they pay good wages). The genesis of all this is the simply the greed of corporate America. It’s the hyper-capitalism and the disappearance of noblesse oblige on the part of the corporate elites (and the connivance of the political class, both at local and national levels) that led to the betrayal of America and Americans.
     
    That's a little simplistic. I'd say it's probably related to the nationalization of competition in the food industry. Take the past three years of financial results for Tyson foods, the company that took over IBP. In a good year, Tyson made a 5% net profit margin. In a bad year, it made 2.5%. This is the biggest player in the American meat industry - the equivalent of Toyota Motors. For comparison, in the same 3 year period, Toyota made a 7% profit margin in its worst year, and 8% in its best year. Tyson does not have the margin to pay its people more. Its products are the same as every other meat company's products.

    Use bots instead of Mexicans or Somalians. In fact turning to robots could lead back to the jobs paying better if you only need 3 workers instead of 20.

  • The usual boo-hoo nonsense. Mexicans can stay in Mexico and go worked for Ford or Airbus and make 3 to 5 an hour. Also, you have liberals saying Mexicans don’t have a chance at home,bull. Mexico has a welfare state that prevents folks from starving by giving rural families money if the kid stays in grade school. Its common in Latin America. Also, about 21 percent of Mexicans have incomes at 5,000 or higher. Libs just want to talk about the bottom 50 percent.

    If Unz isn't the most dishonest and deliberately obtuse person who writes here it's only because Truth does it for free as well. He can't even admit that Hispanics commit crimes at a rate greater than the white average. Or illegal aliens represent any kind of danger at all.

    I know three people killed by illegal aliens. Murdered. One has attacked my daughter. Two of those four illegals are now back in the states or walking free somewhere.

    There are a metric ass load of reasons to figure that illegals might not have the impulse control, investment in community, and ties to keep them on the straight and narrow that native born folks do but hey, lets model the heck out of the data until it kind of, sort of, looks like what we want.

    Actually, Heather MacDonald did studies on crime and illegal immigrants commit less crime than blacks or their offspring. The best argument against illegal immigrants is not crime since they are less likely to belong to MS-13 or the Latin Kings than their kids but that they have offspring that have higher crime rates than whites.

  • Another thing birth rate has less to do with family formation. Many states won by Trump have old populations and will have less kids. West Virginia is the 4th oldest state and PA the second oldest state while California is still younger than the us because of the Latinos coming in about 30 years ago. This means that Ca will continue to have a lot more family formation than West Virginia and PA since its younger. It doesn’t matter if Ca has a birthrate .2 lower than PA or West Virginia. Sailer has always played with stats. In fact according to Sailer’s thinking, Utah and Texas should have went big for Trump since they have younger populations that are having kids more but Trump did much better in states without young populations like Kentucky and West Virginia. Also, as much above, McMullin has little impact on the election. In fact Gary Johnson would be more honest in this family formation study.

    Post-WWII California, especially Southern California, used to be very good for affordable family formation. Maybe not surprisingly, it was considered the heartland of the Republican party and produced quite a few leading Republicans, such as Nixon and Reagan.

    During the 90s, California real estate prices began their extreme climb and the SoCal defense/aerospace sector laid off lots of workers. During the 90s, the state also rapidly transitioned from solidly Republican to solidly Democratic. So it seems plausible that the reduction of affordable family formation may have been the critical factor that flipped California from Red to Blue.

    A lot of the fiercest clashes between pro-Trump and anti-Trump factions have happened in California, especially in SoCal (Anaheim, Huntington Beach, San Diego). There was a major confrontation in Berkeley too. One journalist claimed that California had more Patriot anti-govt groups than any other state, which puzzled him. I wonder if lots of California whites, on some level, feel angry that they've lost their promise land and feel a need to fight for their future.

    Partially true, but Trump did better in the 50 plus category and Ca has lost of lot of whites that are 50 plus. Texas is now losing a lot of 50 plus whites. Also, the post world war baby boom lead the US to the left since people wanted to pay more taxes to built schools and roads. Prop 13 occurred when birth rates dropped in the 1980′s and people wanted to pay less for schools. Ca and New York still have higher family formation if Latinos are included. Trump did the best in states where family formation is dropping, West Virginia, Wyoming. Both states have the lowest family formation in the US but Sailer doesn’t want to tell the truth here. By, the way Texas dropped a whopping 6 percent for Trump versus Romney. Its the upper middle class people with kids not the older folks that don’t kids. Mcmullian got .3 percent of the vote in the US since he was in the ballot in only 8 states at the most.

  • A lot of Trump votes and Republican votes were empty nesters. People 50 plus where their kids left their nests. In fact Sailer is way off, since Trump and McMullian did better with empty nesters than young married couples with kids. I say the Japanese model is better than the high birth rate married model. Trump did worst than Romney in counties with young couples with kids but better with empty nasters. Unlike Sailer, aged the US not increase the birth rate which will moved it into the direction of the left. Japan, baby.

    If even half of Latinos/Asians really do assimilate into whiteness and stop voting based on race, the American left is done. They'd have to rely only on blacks a solid minority base, and the black population is barely growing.

    Also, a lot of the illegal immigrants are middle aged now not young. The average age for immigrants in Santa Ana is about 43 years old and 22 for native born, their offspring or grandchildren. If Trump can cut off illegal immigration and get some to go home. Mexicans and other Latins may break away from the Dems by 10 years.

    No doubt they're getting dumber. I sometimes wonder whether my main beef with the left is that they've become so goddamn boring. Any question you ask is going to be explained simply, oh so simply, in terms of race and sex. Even class never gets brought up any more, much less other factors like disease, religion, nutrition, generational cycles. Leftism has become a refuge for the lazy mind because it offers a pat answer for everything, crowding out all other explanations. And, I would add, this is exactly what global finance wanted when they co-opted leftism.

    Could be. The left until 2,000 smashed everything that had to do with WTC. That was the Blac box days. These days they tend to be not always against things global. I agree they think too much in terms of race and sex. Many are gay guys that had someone called than fad or chicks that read Atwood’s novel, the Handmaiden’s tale.

    There may be something else in play here. Back in the 60s, there was generally not a question as to who led a particular movement ... People like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn (sp.?) were pretty open about being leaders . Clowns and hustling poseurs like Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin thrived on publicity.

    Although there are people visible as leaders of BAMN and a few other organizations, I am not really sure that we know who the true leaders of the "anti-fa" movement are. I suspect that they are smart enough to stay out of the limelight, and let their masked brownshirts do the dirty work and take the odd bust.

    The people that you see e.g. clubbing Donald Trump supporters and shouting down speakers at public universities are definitely not the brains of the outfit, they are just thugs.

    Leftists used to be bright youths, in intellectual rebellion against the traditional conservatism they were taught as children. Today, leftism IS what they are taught as children, so the unthinking masses wind up leftist by default. Bright, skeptical youths - the ones who might have been attracted to communism two generations ago - now seek out taboo ideas elsewhere.

    Good point, I think the David Horowtiz generation of leftism was smart. Today’s left is similar to some of the right that worshipped talk radio, a lot of emotion and not knowledge of famous leftist theories. I always thought that in some ways Bernie Sanders the old left was smarter than Barrck Obama.

    Corvinus,

    The era has long passed when the white working class is represented by unions, now the handmaiden of the bureaucratic or government class. Unions that represent private sector workers are declining in membership. This is why the middle and working class are helped -- on balance -- if unions are busted: government unions represent those who are taking from their paychecks and future livelihood (there is no upside, to those in the private sector who struggle to subsidize the public sector, when government unions increase in power and influence).

    As private unions declined, white middle class people created small businesses to carve out a living. Helping small businesses by lowering taxes helps ordinary Americans. Ditto with easing regulations. Most regulations are seen as punitive to those who aren't government dependents ... and unnecessary.

    Obviously, rescinding NAFTA is a boonfor the American working and middle class, though not so much for illegal immigrants who will have to go home to face the problems that their own governments created. Their job futures will be limited because of their own inept governments. Running away to America, avoiding their own problems, and thus hurting ordinary Americans was only their palliative, not a cure. Their cure is in straightening out their own cultures and countries. Globalists and big business sorts who rely on undercutting American labor with cheap foreigners and paid access to corrupt American politicians will be hurt. They deserve the hurt they earned. They deserve to experience for themselves the pain they have caused ordinary Americans.

    Up defense spending to Reagan levels. The auto industry never paid as well as the aerospace defense did in its peak. The good thing about high levels of defense spending is almost every state has the military-industrial complex.

    Don't be a dammy.

    Bloom didn't simply mean that they were 'soft' and pampered.

    He understood that this 'niceness' wasn't merely the result of being sheltered or protected but the prevailing cultural attitude. He knew it had something to do with the 60s.

    In the 60s, those with conviction tended to be the most thug-like and crazed.

    But 60s faded, and things calmed down a bit... that is until the boomer radicals began to weaponize the institutions as the Greatest Generation types retired and made way for the nutjobs.

    The 'niceness' that Bloom saw in the 80s was a mere respite, a calm before the storm.

    It had nothing to do with victory over the radicals of the 60s. There was no such victory. Rather, the radicals got tired for awhile and regrouped for institutional takeover. While they were preparing for the next assault, things were calm for awhile. It was 'nice'. Because it was an 'order' that lacked pride, conviction, and spine, it was bound to topple over when the new storm came.

    Where Bloom is BS is his refusal to deal with the fact that the only effective spine of Western Civilization is white racial pride and unity. But it had been paralyzed by Jewish power of both Liberal Jews and Neocons. Anti-whites could be rabid and virulent. Whites could only be 'nice'... like Rich Lowry, the lunch-box conservative.

    The greatest generation was more to the left than the baby boomers. The world war Ii bunch like Generation M had immigrant parents and voted more for Democrats than either the good guys silent generation which voted the most for Republicans and younger baby boomers that also voted more for Republicans and disliked the radicals. The greatest generation was a myth they were the beginning of the left in the US under FDR and many of the greatest generation had immigrant parents that neither the silent generation born from 1927 to 1944 didn’t In fact a liberal wrote a book about the greatest generation because unlike the silent generation that follow them, the greatest generation voted the most for Democrats.

    Are those stats for white Britons only, or are the diverse affected too?
     
    there's a class element

    middle class of whatever ethnic group are effected more by the house prices

    welfare housing is a complicated mixture but skewed against both natives and least recent immigrants.

    (it's officially by need but if different groups have 1) a higher birth rate or 2) more single mothers or 3) lower moral barriers to defraud welfare then those groups get preference)

    #

    either way it's ultimately caused by mass immigration putting downward pressure on income and upward pressure on housing costs together squeezing disposable income

    Also, low interest rates for some long causes housing prices to rise. Its happening in the US even with areas with little immigration. What real estate people do with low interest rates is jack up prices more than if the interest rates were higher, Great Britain has had low interest rates for years. Also, having a lot of kids is no solution either since it makes labor costs low one reason that Central Americans pour into the US since there are less jobs available for a young population. Another reason that generation M is very politically left in the US like the older baby boomers were a lot of job competition. Gen-x a smaller generation didn’t have the job competition. A better idea is not tell every white person to moved to Texas because its cheaper than California but to moved to rural Idaho since their is still a lot of open spaces and its sparely populated. Rural areas more than urban and suburban areas are better for more kids.
