How does one distill the worldview of the Democrats vying for their party’s presidential nomination?

Outrace each other on racial righteousness?

End Anglo-America? Welcome The World? Evict the unborn? Speak Spanish; English is your second language?

All the above—and worse.

On display, again, during the second in a series of Democratic primary debates were the racial (read anti-white) dynamics.

Genial and meek uncle Joe Biden bowed and scraped to his multicultural rivals, whereupon they set upon him like a flash mob; a multicultural mugging, Pat Buchanan called it.

Race—more accurately, anti-white politics—is the Democrats’ central cri de coeur. They have no other passion other than hounding and excommunicating others for what are thought crimes—for thinking, speaking or tweeting in politically unpleasing ways.

But practicing ageism gives these social-justice warriors no pause. There’s no social justice for the aged in Democratic politics.

Leading the purge of the party’s elders was Eric Swalwell, a nasty bit of work who had mercifully dropped out after the first round of debates, late in June. At the time, Swalwell had called on older Democrats to “pass the torch.” “[I]t’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans.”

“If we are going to solve the issue, pass the torch. If we are going to solve climate chaos, pass the torch. If we want to end gun violence and solve student debt, pass the torch.”

Swalwell obviously imagined such ugly sloganeering was a winning strategy. And who can blame him? However, other than a writer for the cause at The Atlantic, the representative from northern California galvanized nobody with his call to expunge Democrats in their dotage . (“The Millennial Left Is Tired of Waiting,” intoned said writer. That magazine is packed with verbally incontinent Millennials, all poised to torch deviationists.)

Mr. Nasty is gone, and Democratic voters are, so far, sticking with the safe bet: Looks like the party that habitually blackens white America is hoping the next U.S. president is an old, white American.

Are these hypocrites suggesting that there’s something confidence-inspiring about this much-maligned cohort?

The women on the stage, the lovely Tulsi Gabbard and the well-mannered Marianne Williamson excepted, alternated between the roles of shrew, scold and bully (of old, white men, naturally).

Following Kamala Harris’ lead, the insufferable Kirsten Gillibrand mooed about an old Biden op-ed in which he had warned that women entering the workforce would imperil the family. Who will write the chapter about women like Gillibrand who enter politics and imperil the nation?

For comedic relief, consider the choreography that must have gone into positioning the oddball candidates, striding onto the Fox Theater stage in Detroit. One could hardly place mini-man Pete Buttigieg—boy, has the military lowered its physical requirements—alongside candidates who’d stare down at tiny Pete from vertiginous heights.

Height, however, did nothing to increase a tall Democrat’s stature. The group’s pathological, self-immolating progressivism was the great leveler, although an unspoken pack hierarchy was certainly apparent among the candidates. Naturally, that pecking order was racial.

The culturally more exotic candidates—Harris, Booker and Castro—were the undeclared top dogs. The commonplace, palefaced Democrats were the political underdogs, with less street cred.

The first round of Democratic debates, aforementioned, saw the Spanish supremacists quickly separate themselves from the English-speaking plodders.

Indeed, disunity and discord were everywhere apparent in these Democratic duels. Separation is the operative word in Rome and beyond, in the provinces. It’s Spanish vs. English; melody vs. maniacal ululation. I am referring here to the dissonant renditions of Christian hymns and patriotic songs.

If only symbolically, even the music spoke to the nation’s disunity. “America the Beautiful” and “Amazing Grace,” first, by Detroit’s Perfecting Church Choir, then, by Flint City Wide Choir, were jarring, atonal productions. One expects a melodic, musical rendition of a much-loved, shared oeuvre. Instead, one got maniacal ululations.

And so it went. The over-crowded Democratic field rabbited on in unison about Trump’s racism and their own grand plans for state-run everything.

Most significant were the contradictions. Bernie Sanders lamented that 500,000 Americans live on the streets, but saw no inconsistencies in inviting the world’s poor to settle the same streets.

The same “quality” of contradiction came from Kamala Harris. In response to Tulsi Gabbard’s evisceration of her record as a fair prosecutor, Harris later told an adoring press gaggle that “people want public safety.” She was not going to shy away from her record in providing it.

How does “public safety” jibe with Harris’s open-borders promiscuity? (Oh, I forgot. Anyone marching 1000 miles to jump America’s southern border is, by definition, not a criminal, “reasoned” Bernie, below.)

Prosecuting illegal aliens is “a crisis of cruelty” alliterated Buttigieg. Decriminalize border crossing, bayed the rest. Illegal crossing should be a civil-law infraction, never a criminal violation.

Immigrants are America, crowed Amy Klobuchar. Anyone who walks 1000 miles to the U.S. is no criminal, seconded the irrational Mr. Sanders.

How can such an insane bunch of sell-outs talk about a “sane immigration policy”?

In a field distinguished by its ruthlessly radical mindset, one can understand how E-Warren—let’s jazz up the senator from Massachusetts a bit—has been described by TV’s activist anchors as strong and powerful.

Compared to the other candidates and the sob stories they foisted on viewers—Michael Bennet tethered his family’s history to the Holocaust; Gillibrand squealed about her daughter’s EpiPen—E-Warren is The Man.

When E-Warren says to expand immigration, we listen. Especially when she bolsters her words with that signature muscular move of hers: make the hair flaps covering her ear tips quiver.

Yes, E-Warren is The Man among the Democratic conga-line of cretins.

ORDER IT NOW

One thing is clear: While constituents have ranked immigration as a top issue for 2020, the Dems’ take on the issue was to speak to the need to pry the borders ever wider. Clearly, we have a sovereignty problem, not a humanitarian problem. We Americans have no representation.

In line with their political loyalties, every single one of the candidates practically sang from the one hymn sheet, a lot of it in Spanish: “We have to do more for families looking for a better life.” And they were not speaking of American families.

Duly, Julián Castro had memorized the name of a child and father who drowned attempting to break into the USA illegally and recklessly.

If “drowning exposes the risks of illegal crossing” is a true statement—and it indubitably is—then every American murdered by an immigrant exposes the risks of mass immigration.

But of the sons and daughters of Angel Moms, Castro had no memory. If Mayor Castro can’t spare a thought for the many young Americans dead by illegal aliens, you ask, how about a word of sympathy for an American dog?

Spare a thought, will you, Mr. Castro, for poor little Estrella? She was a helpless mutt, raped to death by a constituent of yours, an illegal alien by the name of Fidel Lopez.

What viewers and voters got from Castro amounted to, Drain and dry that Rio Grande! Level the land to ease the passage of Central America into North America. Let them come in their millions, no, in their billions. Decriminalize crossings. Disband ICE. Deify DACA. Deny no asylum claim. Table a marshal plan for Central America. Immigrants are Americans, only better and more inspiring. “We want more refugees”—so said the nogoodnik who runs my state, Washington.

John Hickenlooper chimed in by calling ICE agents kidnappers and child abusers. An Hispanic anchor, during the first round of debates, even bad-mouthed Obama’s proud record of 3 million deportations. (“Migrant kids who do not have proper claims will be repatriated,” roared Barack Obama, back in the good old days.)

All the above only served to cement the old white guy’s lead in the polls. Ordinary Democrats prefer the doddering Joe Biden to demonic females and their housetrained hombres. Certainly, only media is charmed by Ms. Harris, who is an insufferable scold (with an annoying nasal twang for a voice).

When all is said and done, not even Democrats wish to be governed by the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, who rage as though permanently on the rag.

However this circus ends, let’s hope that regular Democrats continue to be put off by the rude displays coming from the demented, intersectional, social-injustice succubae overcrowding the democratic primaries.

  9. I greatly sympathize with those US citizens who are deadly concerned with the immigration crisis in the US.
    What does bother me is that commentators seem to only concentrate on “pull” factors (ie how easy is it to get across the border ?, how easy is it to acquire a work visa ? etc) You know the Democrats are full of it because they only discuss “pull” issues.
    However to deal with this mess the US must also deal with “push” factors. Many find this distasteful as it smacks of a “free lunch” — & maybe it is.
    Trump’s pressure on Mexico re stopping central Americans is a start at push factors.
    But what is called for, is the US to get in there & stabilize the region.
    No more support for vicious oligarchic dictators (ie Honduras). Push democracy. Push investment that benefits the majority. Stop worrying about “socialism”. Leave Venezuela alone.
    Expensive? Probably. Cheaper in the long run? Definitely.
    Will reduce illegal immigration? Worth a bet at least — esp’ given the shit-storm the country is going through now.

    The simple and

    best solution to the border problem

    is to eliminate the border.. The people on each side are human.. its the nation state leaders, and those private interest that use the national leaders, to create, manage and differentiate the people of both sides of the divides, that are the problem. REMOVE THE USERS, ABUSERS and Operators OF GOVERNMENT but do not block human access to a better quality of life. We humans are in this life together we need to share and cooperate, and if it were not for the leaders of the nation states we would.

    WHEN i HEAR THE DEMOCRAPS OR THE REPUTATURDS SAY ANYTHING, i turn off the volume and blank the screen for fear of being infected by the propaganda disease.. the problem in government is leaders..

    Tulsi and Marianne excepted, these contenders may be scoundrels but they’re not stupid. They’ve got their computers and algorithms and staff members who have their fingers on the pulse of the nomination process. If they’re running to the left of most Dem voters, it must mean that the Dem voters to the left of most Dem voters will be choosing the candidate. Then the candidate will tone down the rhetoric in an effort to sway voters in the swing states. Let’s see what Frank Luntz says.

    Meanwhile, if the new arrivals, having made their way to the shores of the Red Sea (the English translation of Rio Grande) can mass about until the election, the waters will part, and when ICE agents try to chase them back, the waters will come together over them.

    There is no doubt, for the thoughtful and wise, that God destroys nations that have descended into evil and wickedness. Look at history. Societies are like power plants that either run well and in an integrative fashion or they run DOWN due to neglect, wrong decisions, destructive actions either actively or passively allowed. When the lights finally go out, and everything is silent, then comes the horror, the realization that what you have taken for granted and come to expect automatically, is nothing of the sort. It needed to be maintained, acted on from a basis and reference of Reality, and phantasmagoric ideas and endeavors are not accepted and rejected.

    In the book, The Sand Pebbles, Jake Holman the engineer the keeps the ships propulsion and auxiliary equipment going, is a no bullshit person who has no truck with fluff, “pure ideas” [Nikos Kazantzakis], or raising the imaginary and abstract to the Real:

    “Machinery doesn’t care who a man is, where he was born, or how good his manners are. Unlike the rest of the world, machinery can’t be flattered, cajoled or ordered. It only cares how much you know. If you know how it works, it will perform wonders; if you don’t, if you try to con it, it could kill you”.
    That’s a high standard. If more had to live or die by their words, the problems-especially today-would practically vanish.

    Marianne is proposing $500 billion reparations to blacks.

    If a white man and a black man apply to work at a federal job, there is a point system for hiring. The blacks get a 10 point head start. Black females get 12 points.

    Blacks are pushed to the front of the line in university admissions, then coddled when they skip class and flunk out.

    The list is too exhaustive to detail the thousands of ways America has wallowed in shame and shelled out billions for blacks here and abroad.

    No bill is due. Indeed, the blacks are in the deep red to the white American tax payer.

    I don’t know any woman who considered financial gain as any part of her reason for having children. On the contrary, we know women who delayed having children or had only one child purportedly in part due to more-legitimate financial concerns, or in a few cases frankly due to materialism and shorter-term selfishness.

    Single women certainly can get taxpayer freebies by having children, and that defines the African experience in the USA for half a century at least.

    But how do all the married women who have children, “get money” by having those children? Married women, of course, being a heavily white and Asian, and also disproportionately white and Asian, population in the USA.

    I do recognize that more than three-quarters of African births, half of “Hispanic” births (mostly mestizo and indio, not predominantly white European), and a much smaller but still disturbing proportion of white births are to unmarried women. I’m focusing on married women who have children.

    It seems that women who are unmarried can get money and free things from the taxpayers by having children. Women who are married, with the husband presumably working most of the time or all of the time, not as much, even if he does not earn a lot.

    I suggest you ignore both Jewish inputs on immigration and figure it out according to American interest.

    Live there for a few years, come back, and you won’t say that. Talk to immigrants about how similar they are to the American natives, and you also won’t say that.

    In the meantime, _I_ don’t want open borders because it endangers the life and livelihood of myself, my dependents, and my relatives. You appear to be willing to endanger on the behalf of people you have no connection to and no direct knowledge of. I’m a person also. Why are you endangering me?

    but I believe we are nearer to “universal minded humanity” that than ever. If it were not for the leaders in charge of the people containers (nation states), and the private shysters who use those container leaders to screw everybody.. the world would become normal.. Its just that the shysters will do all in their power to prevent loss of top down control.

    I believe the UsA model of governance is so strong, that given the opportunity for the governed to vote on what should be law, and for the voters to personally prosecute all in government who 1) deviate from the laws made by the voters and 2) prosecute all in government who engage in any form of corruption, in a “court-made-up-of-the-governed (not the USA or any government). Such a court would hear cases where governors are charged by private citizens for engaging in activities not approved by a vote of the governed, or cases where a person in government engages in corruption. Such a court will allow the government to function as intended by the voters (after all government should be of the people, by the people and for the people). A people’s court to keep the people in government in line.
    Just eliminate the regime (nation state leaders): and use the existing USA model to all bureaucrats to operate a leaderless government, bottom up directed, bottom up guarded and top down enforced.

    let the people work out their differences and vote on it.. no representatives are needed, this is direct government. and it will work.

    There isn’t an industrialized country on the planet were women entering the workforce hasn’t produced a lower birth rate. There are now as more childless women and couples than at any time in history. All of these imperil the family. We really have no idea how many children have been f’ed up by baby sitting, day care, and other measures put in place to assist “working moms”, and if so in what way. We do know divorce rates are higher since women entered and stayed in the work force after bearing children. No one dares study whether the mother staying in the work force was contributing factor, and, if so, how much of a contributing factor?

    Another warning from a former Colorado governor, a Democrat. From a speech.

    Richard D. Lamm was a Democrat who served as governor of Colorado for twelve years from 1975 to 1987. In 2005, a third-person account of a speech attributed to him, on the perils of multiculturalism, became a viral item online:

    A Frightening Analysis

    [MORE]

    We all know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor named Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,” explaining how immigration — both legal and illegal — was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

    Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, “If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.’”

    “Here is how they do it,” Lamm said: First to destroy America, “Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.”

    Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

    Third, “We could make the United States a ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: ‘The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved! Not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.’”

    Lamm said, “I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.”

    “Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.”

    “My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology.’ I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.”

    “My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity! Unity is what it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games.

    A common enemy Persia threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to over come two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell.

    “E. Pluribus Unum” — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.”

    “Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits ~ make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘x! xenophobes’ halt discussion and debate.”

    “Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

    In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’s book Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”

    There was no applause.

    A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America — take note of California and other states — to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace,” “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”

    Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

    “Ilana was born in South Africa, which her father, Rabbi Ben Isaacson, decided to leave pursuant to harassment by the South African security police on account of his anti-apartheid preaching and activism. (Ilana herself, on return, decades later, fought petty apartheid tirelessly.) The family departed in the 1960s for Israel, where Ilana spent her formative years. She returned to South-Africa in the 1980s, married and had a daughter. The family emigrated to Canada in 1995, and then went on to settle in the US.”

    Sir/Madame, you do not understand irony. I was putting things in context because Ilana is a hypocrite. She is a South African born perpetual immigrant. She has lived in around half a dozen countries. Ilana collects citizenships like some of us collect antiques. I think it was the recently removed British Prime minister Theresa May who famously said ‘if you are a citizen of everywhere, you are a citizen of nowhere’.
    Unfortunately Ilana does get a lot of anti semitic abuse and that is wrong. But there is a saying-‘ what comes round goes round’.
    Ilana’s vitriol towards some of her fellow immigrants has two causes firstly her extreme hatred of black and brown people and secondly her worship of WASP men. She actually believes that in America only white men should have positions of power. She dreams of a return to the era of ‘Mad Men’ when drunken, chainsmoking philandering white men ruled the world. Ilana does not recognize that black and brown legal immigrants have as much right to be in America as other Americans.

  64. Though I basically agree with the author’s contention that the Democratic presidential candidate lineup is a circus, with the exception of Representative Tulsi Gabbard and the consistently polite Marianne Williamson, the author’s remarks regarding immigration are completely off the wall.

    First and foremost, there is very little in depth and accurate data regarding immigrant crime statistics since the federal government has done a very poor job of maintaining such data. As the article from Business Insider demonstrates, immigrant crime that can be reported on, is actually lower than crimes committed by American citizens. See… https://www.businessinsider.com/undocumented-aliens-violent-crime-murder-statistics-data-2018-8

    At the end of the aforementioned piece is paragraph that stipulates a study in the Criminology Journal, which should be considered as it also demonstrates that the rates of actual immigrant crime are rather low comparatively speaking.

    The fact is is that the majority of illegal immigrants coming into the United States do everything possible to avoid detection so as not to alert authorities of their presence.

    However, this is not the real problem that the author’s piece should be addressing. We have an immigrant problem as a direct result of US deprivations across the spectrum of South American countries from Mexico down. This is all well established fact and has been documented in innumerable research on the issue.

    Instead of understanding this critical factor that underlies the entirety of our immigration problem, what the author presents is another promotion for Angelo-Saxon American culture; in short the White Race is better than the Brown races and why do we need them here.

    As a military hist0rian-analyst I hate to burst the author’s narrowly focused argument but the White Race hasn’t done a very good job historically in developing and maintaining cultural norms as it relates to Humanism, equality, and decency. If you want to get right down to it, Whites have been responsible for the most horrendous acts of war and barbarism in the modern world that has not been equaled since antiquity prior to the rise of the great ancient empires.

    And since the end of World War I, the “White Race” has been carving up the world to their delight with little consideration for who lived in those affected areas.

    So please, enough with this “us poor Whites”; we’re being invaded by the savages!

    However, getting back to the underlying issues to the problem, we can also count on the US corporations to be a major source of angst in this regard. With huge amounts of outsourcing, insourcing, and foreign worker visas that allowed for the importation of cheap labor for corporate exploitation starting in the late 1990s, there has been no end to rapidly increasing inequality and job deprivation across the entire breadth of the US middle-class, no matter the color of a person’s skin. This was piled on top of the massive destruction of the US manufacturing base that no viable nation can exist for long without; again thanks to the greedy, self-centered dirt-bags that make up corporate leadership cadres in this country… at all levels…

    Let’s not also forget the billions of your dollars that are being given to Israel in a never ending stream of largess as a result of massive Israeli\Zionist influence in the United States where dubious people with Israeli duel-passports infest high positions in the US government steering government Mid East policy, our wars there, and ensure that the tsunami of monies keep coming into a tiny little racist nation who hates everyone who is not them. All of this is fully supported by the evangelical Christian nut-jobs who can’t wait to go up in a pillar of destruction, nicknamed the Rapture in order to make it acceptable to all god-fearing lunatics who believe in fairy tales created thousands of years ago.

    Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let’s also include all of the companies that continue to hire “illegal aliens” by the boat load to work at jobs that no American wants letting such temporary workers be exploited to the fullest by everything from theft to rape on their to-do lists.

    Numerous proposals have been submitted to Congress for legitimate work-visa programs so that not only will such temporary workers be protected by our laws and have their compensation protected but also so that law enforcement agencies can keep better track of such people coming into our country for this type of labor. However, thanks to cretins like Mitch McConnel and his entire ilk across both sides of the aisle, no such bill has ever been developed and created into law as the lobbying by the exploiters was so continuous and overwhelming.

    Last but not least, let us not forget the deportation of violently, dangerous South American criminals who once dumped back in their own countries quickly bring mayhem and terror to the peoples down there while setting up paths back into the United States to return to their criminal activities here.

    You want someone to blame for these problems? Well they are all centered in that cesspool, Washington DC, not in South America. Those people, for the most part, are simply fleeing the mayhem, terror, and political dysfunction that WE caused.

    So own up to it!!!

    You imagine that if government borders do not exist that all borders will cease to exist and that groups of people will not claim territory for themselves and enforce the borders of that territory with violence.

    Tell that to the Mexican gangs who firebombed blacks out of the Ramona Gardens public housing development in Los Angeles in 2014, in order to make it exclusively Mexican.

    In 1969 the Hondurans chased out illegal aliens from El Salvador , leading to something called The Soccer War (AKA The Football War). Mobs beat, raped, and killed immigrants and burnt down their homes and businesses. Just wait until the people we are importing from both of these countries start jostling over territory here in your Kumbaya Rainbow Utopia.

    Remember the Somali pirates? They started partly in response to the fact that after the downfall of the Somali government, no state or coast guard existed to enforce the borders of their coastal waters. Somali waters became the site of an international “free for all,” with fishing fleets from around the world illegally plundering Somali fishing stock. Foreign ships were also accused by local fishermen of dumping toxic and nuclear waste off Somalia’s shores.

    Was that unfair to the Somali people? Should they be allowed to have borders? And, if so, why not Americans?

    At best, abolishing borders will shift, rather than eradicate, territorial disputes. At worst, by creating a power vacuum it will cause an explosion of violence. And, as the example of Somalia shows, a weak or absent state and the inability to police borders will also lead to both economic plunder and ecosystem damage, if not collapse.

    As someone who lives on the margins of American society and witnessing a steady proliferation of financial and social poverty all around me, I offer these observations.

    The rich people of the world view the world as a giant casino on which to place their bets. They can shift money easily from Russia to China to India to Brazil to America. They are loyal to no society or culture, only to their god mammon.

    These same rich people buy the politicians in every country to do their bidding, to pass laws favoring them, to reduce their taxes to a puny percentage of what they should pay, and to distract the broader public with racial religious ethnic and social strife and agitation. All this is designed to distract us from the fact that they are robbing the economy blind and making off with all the fruits of the system.

    They channel our outrage about their larceny against each other by promoting ethnic strife just as Trump is doing.

    Trump’s buddies on Wall Street promote immigration, both legal and illegal, in order to drive wages down. It’s what Paul Craig Roberts calls labor arbitrage.

    Unfortunately the apparently intelligent readers of the UNZ report play right into this cynical game. Supporting the Redpublicans, reflexively condemning socialism (except for the socialist Pentagon), and anything else that might ameliorate our perilous situation.

    You need to recognize we are screwed either way. The Repugnicans are loyal only to money and power. They don’t care about any of us. Mitch McConnell is called Moscow Mitch but he’s also in bed with the PRC via his wife Elaine Chou.

    We all are being played for dupes, like the fools who go to Trump’s casinos and lose their shirts. Trump has spent his whole life defrauding losers in his casinos and other scams. People on this blog should know better than to fall for his deceptions and those of the Repugnican party.

    There is only one struggle in this world: the rich against the rest of us. They are like addicts, never content with their millions always lusting for more money more power more pleasure more hedonistic thrills.

    Keep being manipulated by the Repugs and yapping like dogs over hot button morality issues. The slaves on the plantation also had a moral lifestyle: no drinking, no abortions, no vacations, no fun, nada nothing, mandatory Sunday church attendance. This is the aim of the Repubs. But apparently most of you are too stupid to realize it.

  102. @Johnny Walker Read

    Assault rifles are good for assaults. So what is an assault?

    Ordinarily, every effort is made to inflict casualties on the enemy at range. That’s what artillery does, same with tactical air (which can be thought of as long range artillery). On a good day for the infantry, the enemy never gets close enough to be a serious threat.

    However, the enemy knows that’s how US force work, and tries to close (“grab their belt buckles”) with US infantry. When that happens, the infantry force has things to attack the enemy without overly risking themselves: explosive ordnance, close in artillery fire, and barriers that slow the enemy down and permit ranged fires to be effective longer. The infantry unit also has light machine guns (LMG) that are effective against enemy in the open.

    [MORE]

    But let’s suppose that the enemy finally stops in improvised firing positions close to the US unit, too close for any ranged weapon and well enough protected to resist the light. The US unit now has nothing much to stop the enemy’s fire. Neither infantry rifles nor the LMG can penetrate the opposing infantry’s cover in this scenario, and the US infantry unit can’t be resupplied without casualties to the resupply unit, and possibly can’t be resupplied at all.

    In that situation, the book answer is an assault. This has three phases:
    a) Establish fire superiority. That is, shoot rapidly and accurately enough that the enemy drops behind cover. At this point, the enemy cannot see you.
    b) Leaders yell “Assault”, everybody stands up, and maintains a steady fire while walking towards the enemy. The LMG ordinarily accompany the assault. If enemy stands up or peaks over their cover, they are shot at.
    c) Upon reaching the enemy line, US infantry switches to automatic fire and kills those who don’t surrender quickly enough. The “quickly enough” comes from the lethality of even a single enemy soldier to the upright and exposed assaulting troops.

    The above assault is avoided these days. Back in WW II it often worked because enemy troops would panic and run; it was like an old bayonet charge in that regard, and a variant is for everybody to fix bayonets (b).

    The more often used variant of this is that the US infantry unit has been ambushed, and attacks the ambushing unit by switching to full automatic and running through the enemy line. Hits here are random, from instinctive aim rather than use of sights.

    OK, so the assault rifle is good for assaults. It was the ambush situation that was responsible for adopting the M16A1; the M14 couldn’t be controlled in automatic fire mode during such a situation. Us forces were consequently unable to match enemy forces (using AK47s, for example).

    The M16A1 had lighter rounds, and the infantryman could carry more of them than he could carry M14 rounds. This is just as well, because the M16 was very often used in full automatic mode. Marksmanship training back then was poor, and in any case jungle warfare often presents no visible target, so firing through the foliage is the only chance there was.

    So: M16A1 was good at assault, good at close range combat, but was just not effective at range (although it was rated for 800meters for area targets). The rounds were only 55 grains, and lost wounding power as they slowed down from air friction. The deficiencies of the M16A1, however, were compensated for by the ability of US infantry to call in ranged weapons of various sorts from other parts of their combat unit.

    Now, if you’re playing the other side of the coin, shoot and scoot, long range ambush, maybe an assault rifle isn’t quite what you want. Maybe you want something at a slightly longer distance from the conventional forces you’re attacking. You can’t afford more than two or three shots anyway; conventional infantry can sometimes respond very quickly. Bolt action rifle with a long range round might be just the thing. _And_, you can use it for deer hunting.

    Or maybe you want to try a close ambush. In that case, you want an assault rifle and a bunch of friends and competent leadership.

    Firearms aren’t magic. There’s a reason for most things. As with everything else, there’s a proper tool for the job.

    You’re right. No entity has ever before been subverted, enslaved, betrayed, controlled, falsely imprisoned, made a scapegoat, genocided, etc without it being their fault. Your logic and understanding of personal agency is flawless. Your statement makes perfect sense.

    Personal agency is the free will of the individual to make decisions, numbnuts, nothing more. Its also limited to the individual, by definition, and does not apply to group political competition. Even the tightest, most cooperative political group (ie: Jews) can not be spoken about in terms of any formal definition of free agency. Its a concept relegated to the individual. Groups can be spoken about in terms of group conspiracy, strategy, etc…sure. But not free agency.

    It also has nothing directly to do with group or even individual success or failure in the face of forces that are not supposed to be competing within a nation, which compete in secret with the help of mafia-like facilitated oppression of competition against them, and which compete against groups that have been systematically fractured over a period of hundreds of years. It solely has to do with an individual’s free will to make decisions in the context of their person. It does not imply the success of a group. No soldier has won nor will win a war because of his free agency.

Embracing such a biased and prejudiced static model alibi excuse for their victim-blaming crimes of slander, in stead of embracing the dynamic reality of life, used to be known as “idolatry.” Nowadays it’s fobbed off under the equally static alibi known as the “diseased victim” or “mental illness” model to excuse their criminal desires and actions.

    ALL masochists habitually pretend to be able to “control” their fears, BY causing and/or by criminally, negligently allowing or inducing others to cause those very same worst-case scenario problems which cause the pains they fear the most!

    Hey, guy. I’m tired of people using the term “assault rifle” without knowing what either an assault or a rifle is. I’ve given a guide, which you (and they) can read or not. It’s orthogonal to whether assault rifles should be widely used or not. [0]

    When the authors say “machine guns” they include sub-machine guns and assault rifles [1]. They really mean “fully automatic firearms” In current law [2] fully automatic firearms are very tightly controlled, although perhaps not quite as much as the authors imply. You’d need a net worth in the million dollar range to afford the care and feeding of a fully automatic firearm without seriously impacting your daily life and future financial standing. Some people and businesses still can and do own such fully automatic firearms, and some ranges offer “the full automatic experience” for those who want it (as does the infantry part of DoD, and some gangs if i read between the lines a bit).

    However, the bulk of people don’t have access to fully automatic weapons.

    OTH, the bulk of gainfully employed people don’t really have access to _any_ firearms or bladed weapons [3]. Sure, they can buy the firearms or bladed weapons, but they can’t afford the time and cost of training or the pre-paid legal services or the gear (a useful load-out costs over two thousand dollars) or, for that matter, the range time. Current laws effectively prevent anybody _who participates in and supports_ the US political system from armed self defense.

    Nor does possession of firearms and obeying law necessarily give any protection. Ask the surviving Branch Davidians [4], or, for that matter, consider Jeffry Epstein (who was arrested, and is now dead [5].)

    So complete banning of firearms wouldn’t make that much direct difference to most people. OTH, having a sink for the bad guys (who would tend to be wounded / killed more often) would make a difference. I’ve seen a theory that pointed out the reduction in European historical murder rate after concealable pistols were invented and became widely used. To against one is decisive when both sides have bladed weapons, when the defender has a firearm, though, “victory” is apt to mean one attacker dead or seriously wounded, even at two or three to one odds. And if you don’t have immunity from law enforcement, a three or more person team is a bit conspicuous.

    There’s another factor. Assault rifles are good for assaults. When engaged but not assaulting [6], the US Army advises use of aimed semi-automatic fire at a rate of 1 shot per second to prevent overheating the barrel and changing the rifle’s aiming point. Even so, troops these days tend to wear gloves to prevent burns from hot weapons.
    And if you practice, you can get off a pretty good rate of fire during assaults just by squeezing the trigger rapidly. Bump stocks are smoke for people who like gadgets, in my experience.

    “I have read the above, and am none the wiser.” That may be so, but you are at least better informed. So much for facts (as i see them)

    Now, what do I think? Well, its pretty obvious that disarming the civil population has worked out very badly.
    The cities probably had to disarm, because they imported the bulk of their population precisely because the imported population was (as a population) incapable of performing paid work in an industrial society. Even for H1Bs today, their kids tend to be either incapable of such work or else to see the government of an industrial economy as a great opportunity for private enrichment at the expense of the organization’s formal goals. It seems likely (from the present anti-incarceration move) that the firearm ban was primarily a safety measure for these groups [7] to reduce the lethality both of intra-group conflicts and of predation on other groups. The realtive stability of NYC before, during, and after the “stop and frisk” campaign would seem to bear out this assessment.
    The cities want to disarm the countryside from a different motive. Cities controled the government until quite recently (I read a _NY Times_ columnist at one point about 5 years ago bragging that NYC had one Supreme Court justice per borough, for example). The motive is, as in the Branch Davidian affair, establishing full spectrum escalation dominance over the countryside. Clinton & co. dropped back after the Davidians and Ruby Ridge affair. Had the two groups involved surrendered without a fuss, the Federal suppression of such groups would have continued. As it is, in recent years California cities have been suppressing such expressions of independence as off-the-grid houses that had been considered legal for (apparently) decades prior to the code change that makes off-the-grid per se illegal.

    As for the countryside, it’s (no kidding) filling up with refugees from the city, and has very cohesive religious groups that are armed well enough to prevent home invasions by untrained but experienced raiders equipped with small arms. The same government that utterly failed to subdue the countryside of Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, even given a secure logistical base in CONUS, probably cannot subdue the countryside as it now exists. Just protecting the electrical grid, railways, and Interstates would be utterly beyond it, even if it had loyal domestic troops carrying out the operation [8]. Should there be a complete ban on firearms, though, the existing rural stock would start dwindling. Eventually, it would dwindle enough to make effective resistance to gradual police and criminal gangs (Mexican cartels, for example) subduing the countryside feasible.

    Hope you’ve found this informative.

    1] AR platforms can be chambered in other calibers, true enough. The military / law enforcement AR platforms, and the sporter versions of these platforms, tend to come in 5.56 because it’s best for the application. 5.56 is a bit small for hunting deer; the animals tends to run after it’s hit, and you get to walk a mile or so while tracking blood signs before you find the body. They you get to drag at least the meat back to the car. Some advocate 6.8 mm rounds for military application because one gets more one-shot immediate stops that way, but I’ve been advised that they have too much penetration of building materials for use for home defense. A bolt action rifle in 5.56 (.223) could be used for long range varmint shooting, and that’s how the cartridge was developed. A bolt action rifle is usually intended to hunt deer or more (or for training, like a .22, or for varmint hunting as above.

    1] “fully automatic firearms”: not “fully automatic weapons”, a term that would fit military/FBI drones, robots, and the like if the meaning of English words were to be respected.

    2] https://thefederalist.com/2017/10/02/actual-federal-laws-regulating-machine-guns-u-s/

    3] “weapons” here mean an artifact intended to cause physical harm to another person on demand, and usable as a threat. Pistols, knives, and acid are weapons, poisons are not. Napalm is a weapon if it is in a flamethrower or other delivery device, but not otherwise. An example of a bladed weapon would be a dagger, which is pretty much useless except as a threat.

    4] Contemporary news reports (that I heard) claimed the ATF raid was started because an _ATF official_ saw an an image that appeared to be a plan for a sub-machine gun while leaving the compound after an inspection tour that had revealed nothing illegal. Such a plan, which was apparently never found or mentioned again, would not have been illegal.

    5] The Epstein suicide reads like cheap escape fiction. The evil bad guys who are running the world avoid a minor inconvenience by asking the prison organization to kill somebody who should have been on suicide watch. Unfortunately, we appear to live in cheap escape fiction, except it’s horror fiction and it isn’t fiction.

    6] And assaults are just as much a shambles as you’d think. Both sides take casualties, it’s just that the losing side takes more casualties.

    7] although I’ve seen it written that the New York Sullivan Law (no pistols) was originally passed to ensure that only Tammany organization members could be armed at the polls.

    8] If foreign, especially Chinese, troops were brought in, they also would lack the physical ability to win and would greatly exacerbate the US political situation. Besides, having won the war, they would be extremely unlikely to reinstate the current political class, even as puppets. Chinese have been accused of many things (including outsmarting themselves), but never gross stupidity.

    Taking your questions seriously (which is probably a mistake) you can assault somebody with your bare hands. Happens every day, and in civil life it’s a recognized crime. You don’t need rifle, and you don’t even need to yell.

    Is it still considered an “assault rifle” even if it isn’t fully semiautomatic

    The term “assault rifle” is a category of rifle, in the same way that schooner is a category of sailing vessels. Schooners don’t have to schoon, and assault rifles don’t need to assault anybody.

    The actual firearms were developed by Germany during the latter part of WW II. The German army at that time used a semi-obsolete bolt action, single shot, “not fully semiautomatic” rifle. They were up against a US Army that used 45 cal sub-machine gun (a carbine that fires pistol rounds as long as the trigger is pressed and the magazine has rounds. Pistol rounds have less recoil, so the sub-machine gun can be made lighter than a light machine gun and still remain controllable) and a semi-automatic (one round per trigger pull but rifle ammunition, more energy/round) rifle. The Soviets ended up using a semi-obsolete bolt action rifle, but also a sub-machine gun firing a 7.62 mm pistol round. In actual WW II combat, it was found by the German army that troops using that troops (mainly Soviet troops) assaulting with a sub-machine guns were superior to German troops using bolt action rifles. In an assault, one fires accurately while walking towards the opposition. The more fire, the more the other side keeps its head down, even if the fire is “just” pistol rounds. Also, once the assault force crosses the enemy line, automatic weapons fire is more effective at killing the opposition infantry behind their cover than are either bayonets or single round rifles.

    Trouble is, the sub-machine guns have very little effective range, and an individual infantryman can’t carry both sub-machine gun and rifle.

    The “assault rifle” was intended to be a combination sub-machine gun and rifle. Its bullets are lighter, and thus make less recoil per shot and are controllable under full automatic fire. Its bullets are very high velocity (about 1 km/sec at the muzzle for US 5.56mm), however, and have much more energy than pistol rounds, hence a longer range. And, of course, like all compromises it has the disadvantages of both: less range and energy than a rifle, so less ability to penetrate cover and less knock-down ability, but a longer barrel than a sub-machine gun. The current issue arm, the M4 Carbine, is much more like the old time sub-machine guns than it is a rifle. Rifle fire at a distance is now the province of designated marksmen. If you want to consider room clearing as an assault, the M4 is a specialized assault rifle/carbine designed for use by mounted troops in room clearing and built up areas.

    So, in answer to your probably intended question: if it isn’t “full automatic, is it an assault rifle”, the answer is no. It isn’t in the same way that a sailing ship without a keel isn’t a schooner.

    My point being, which was actually (sortta) serious, is what are called “assault rifles” by gun control Democrats are actually semi-auto rifles that cannot fire in auto mode. The “assault rifle” moniker is given to make them sound more dangerous. After you deprive the “assault rifle” of it’s automatic mode, all you have left is its lighter, less powerful round with less stopping power than its battle rifle or hunting rifle predecessors.

    My (ok, rhetorical and facetious) question was, would, according to military science, an infantry unit, equipped with semi-auto rifles with no auto mode, but however, firing smaller, lighter rounds than a semi-auto battle rifle, be considered equipped with “assault rifles”.

    Nor do I read Mevashir as supporting Team Blue. I, too, received a lot of “shill” accusations starting in 2015 when questioning Mr. Trump’s bona fides and urging people not to participate in national politics.

    If Ilana presents herself as an advocate of white nationalist interests, you have a right to know that she was an anti apartheid agitator in South Africa and an ardent Zionist.

    She claims to be a libertarian opponent of government giveaways, but when it comes to her beloved Israel she believes American foreign military and economic aid should be unlimited.

    This is from her own website: http://www.ilanamercer.com/biographical/

    “Ilana was born in South Africa, which her father, Rabbi Ben Isaacson, decided to leave pursuant to harassment by the South African security police on account of his anti-apartheid preaching and activism. (Ilana herself, on return, decades later, fought petty apartheid tirelessly.) The family departed in the 1960s for Israel, where Ilana spent her formative years. She returned to South-Africa in the 1980s, married and had a daughter. The family emigrated to Canada in 1995, and then went on to settle in the US.”

    Given all that, and barring an apology or explanation from her, I don’t trust her. It matters not what she has written here.

    I like consistency. Most folks here seem to be anti Zionist. So when you sing Ilana’s praises, I find that bizarre considering she is an uber-Zionist.

    My (ok, rhetorical and facetious) question was, would, according to military science, an infantry unit, equipped with semi-auto rifles with no auto mode, but however, firing smaller, lighter rounds than a semi-auto battle rifle, be considered equipped with “assault rifles”.

    OK, short answer is “no”. Why? Infantry can’t assault as well with semi-automatic rifles as with rifles that are capable of short bursts of automatic fire. Not long bursts, short bursts. The AR platform (field manual says) best used at 1 round /sec average. That’s probably why initial issue was 20 round magazines (enforce cooling after every 20 rounds while magazines are changed), and why the magazines on M-4 are limited to 30 rounds, and and I would think are associated with over-heating, apparently due to over-heating. Their purpose is to arm the individual soldier to win short range short duration encounters (ambushes, assaults on dug in enemy forces once fire dominance has been achieved) while retaining enough range to protect infantry should support weapons be unavailable. That’s all the’re good for, except for maybe wall decorations.

    But before this explanation makes any sense, you have to know what an assault is, and what a rifle is, and why the assault rifles of any sort (e.g. AK) aren’t much like previous military rifles, and why the M-4 and related platforms are as they are. Once you know that, the above is a reasonable summary (I hope).

    Anyway, your question is very apt, and thanks for asking it.

    Gee whiz! For that to make sense, there would have to be a “part semi-automatic”. “Full semiautomatic” is a word combination that’s just not used.

    On another note, the word Hebrew come from the ancient word (I believe Arabic), Hibiru. This word means, disruptor of the public order, thief, bandit, liar. In our current day vernacular, we would simply call such a person an “asshole”…

    I thought it comes from the biblical word Eber, meaning One Who Crossed Over, referring to Abraham for leaving Mesopotomia and crossing over the Jordan into Canaan?

    I can’t remember his name offhand, but an Israeli historian I believe has stated that the modern Jewish religion has been completely re-written in the last 200 years. If true, it was probably done to cover up much of the hate for the “other” that is so inherent in the original belief system.

It’s too late and all of the moaning and groaning will not stop the inevitible eternal takeover of the US by the party of blue-haired crazies as it is only a matter of time until they are back in the WH and whence they will resume their relentless drive to convert the US into a dysfunctional marxist crazy-house, such as is now transpiring in Germany the epicenter of human insanity.

    Germany , where the goal at hand being first off the elimination of all privately-owned motor vehicles, and then the total break-up of heavy industry, and the transformation into a “Fahrrad Republic” : Bike-Republic, plus the reduction of electricity and prohibiting of all meat consumption.

    I could go on and on depicting the leftist madness which radiates from Germany to the rest of the hapless planet : Antifa, green-madness, communism, psychology, heroin, authority-worship, the list is miles long, of the abberations stemming from Deutschland, and as said above : It’s too late to even try to bring it to a halt, the US is doomed.

Add to this constellation the amazing warefare against the US gun laws being waged in all of the German media, which are demanding that the US alter it’s constitution so as to forbid private gun ownership such as in Germany, and plus the relentless demanding of the German “intelligenzia” that the US eliminate it’s electoral college which caused their Liebling HC to lose the election to tha most hated person in post-war German history : DT

    One does in fact arrive at the conclusion that the fucking Krauts somehow think that they had won the war, and they are now called upon to dictate US internal policy, and to push the US to a transformation into a “Links-Grün” madhouse such as in their own deranged nation.

    WC’s “Boots or throat” axiom is now as then to be considered as a warning as to what may transpire if the psychotic Teutons are not held in check.

    ” they most certainly are not promoting abortion for the purpose of reducing their own voting block namely blacks.” I agree. I was writing clumsily, I meant to say that I agree with the Democratic position on the topic, that is all. Of course they are not pushing it to reduce their voting bases, which include groups that use abortion more, not only Negroes but also Hispanics, Jews and criminal and mentally ill Europeans. But I do agree with their reason that women should have a right to an abortion also, even if abortion were more common among Europeans and people lacking criminal behavior I would still oppose laws against it. The fact abortion reduces the birth rates of groups that cause social problems and of criminals is just a bonus that makes me support it more.

    It’s simply that the other candidates are so repellent, she seems less odious. She cannot beat Trump. He would take her lunch money and cause her to ugly cry on national television.”

    No Democrat whose name is not Joe Biden has a chance of defeating Trump, because all the Democratic presidential candidates other than Biden give off crackpot vibes. That is why I support Biden. Marianne Williamson gives off an extreme New Age crackpot vibe, she can not possibly win. I have no idea why you would say she was better than Biden as a candidate to run against Trump.
