In the Dating Game clip above, future libertarian-leaning judge Alex Kozinski, the lively guy with the Bela Lugosi accent, defeats David Lander, future Squiggy on “Laverne and Shirley,” and then kisses the poor bachelorette like Adrien Brody kissing Halle Berry.

If you recall the absurd 2010 incident in which the dean of the Harvard Law School Martha Minow publicly denounced one of her third years students for having written a private email explaining why she wasn’t wholly convinced by The Bell Curve, one bit of good news in the situation was that the student was headed for a clerkship with Judge Kozinski, and the Judge is not the kind of guy to throw the first stone.

Not surprisingly, from Business Insider:

Former clerks accuse Reagan-appointed appeals court judge of sexual misconduct

David Choi

I vaguely recall hearing about this guy’s porn predilection in 2004 from a former law clerk of his. (Or maybe I’m thinking of another appeals court judge. But probably not. Kozinski is one of the most famous judges outside the Supreme Court, along with Posner and Easterbrook.)

The Judge’s range of opinions are fairly exhausting just to read about.

How much of this is just the guys with the most energy getting called out? I’ve never seen anybody try to quantify interpersonal “energy,” but it sure seems to be something of a common denominator among the perps in Weinsteingate. Most of these guys getting named are horny bastards mostly because they are Not Shy and Not Exhausted from Emotional Labor.

In contrast, Obama seems unlikely to be named because he gets worn out psychologically by personal contact. That’s one explanation for why he stuck with smoking in an era when elites were against smoking. Obama is not big on doing things that are unfashionable, but the rules against smoking indoors gave him an excuse for sneaking outside by himself or with one or two close friends and lighting up. When he was editor of the Harvard Law Review, for example, he spent a huge amount of time outside smoking.

How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness? Most guys get worn down by rejection by women and resolve to improve their batting average by not attempting quite so hopeless approaches. But some guys resolve to make more approaches because they only have to get lucky once per evening.

    Same with his days as an adjunct professor. He was widely known for it.

    He was also pretty dismissive of the faculty lounge, as I recall. Maybe it was a No Smoking area.

    No, he was likely painfully aware of his inability to hold an unscripted conversation that required more than an average intellectual ability.

    There was this old fart white federal judge in Georgia about a decade ago who got popped for screwing some blond hooker.

    She got him weed and other drugs and for some reason I forget she snitched him out to the FBI

  2. Here’s another hypothesis: Most high status men in America achieved their positions because they were aggressive in the sense of willing to take risks. A man who is willing to take risks is a lot more likely to flirt with or try to seduce a subordinate at work. From the perspective of 10 or 20 years ago, there was not much risk in doing what is now seen as serious sexual harassment and there was significantly upside — how many attractive young female law clerks eagerly got down on their knees for Kozinsky? This is a man who can boost a young lawyer’s career almost as much a a Harvey Weinstein can boost a young actress’s career. Believe me, if a federal judge picks up the phone to recommend someone for a fancy job, any number of law firms will trip over themselves to hire that person.

    I think Obama is a special case — he’s about as far from being a self-made man as a politician can get. He was a reasonably intelligent black man who spoke Standard English who was groomed to be sold as a Black President. He didn’t have to take much in the way of risks to get ahead.

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It's why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other. They were like 'made men' in a system of power where law, media, politics, finance, and academia have largely been dominated by Jews.

    But the Weinstein scandal has a bursting-dam effect because (1) he's such a big name (2) even Jews gave the OK on taking him down.
    So, the word got out that it's Hunting Season on the Pervs.

    PS. With Jewish men, it's not just aggression. It's passive/aggressive dynamics that makes them both driven & hungry and self-pitying & mugging-for-sympathy.

    It's like Grodin in HEARTBREAK KID and Hoffman in THE GRADUATE.

    The wasp country club thing always had sexual connotations. White fathers were keeping Jewish boys out to keep them away from their shikse daughters.
    So, Jews played both victim and ultimate victor.

    So, even when Jews play aggressive, they act like they're being passively done wrong to.

    Say NO to me? Boo hoo hoo. Let's try that again. Pee Wee way

    A Federal judge's chambers are not Hollywood and female law clerks are not sexy Hollywood actresses There is no evidence or even rumor that he so much as patted a clerk on the back, let alone that he was getting BJs from them or that he would have even wanted to given the looks and personality of most of them. Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters the same way he might talk about his interest in hurricanes or volcanoes or a thousand other things.

    None? I haven't read any allegations yet like that. He's accused of making a few female clerks feel uncomfortable. No allegations yet that he laid a hand on anyone.
    , @Alden
    You obviously don't know any judges and attorneys either men or women. Women attorneys are like all other women. They run from unattractive to beautiful. The young ones are obviously prettier than the middle aged. When they are at work, women attorneys dress in neat office attire. So they look better than someone schlumping along in jeans, sweatshirt, and hair scrapped back in a dowdy ponytail.

    People should comment about what they know.

    Introversion is more taxing than shyness. It's a real curse, believe me! I'm an introvert who has to fake everyday being an extrovert. Thank god I'm not shy too! Just two hours interacting with other people, even friends and close family is an ordeal. You feel exhausted, you want to run for the door, you want to be alone.
    Obama doesn't strike me as a stereotypical introvert. He's just brain-dead and low-energy.

    Obama, unlike Nixon, has not prospered in politics. Nixon fought his way into the White House, Obama was the right guy at the right time. Nixon led a realignment of the Republican Party that has led to increasing GOP dominance of local governments and congress ever since. Obama did nothing as the Democratic Party decayed during the last decade into a group of ethnic factions fighting for dominance. Even in disgrace Nixon was still an influential statesman behind the scenes. Obama has vanished as if he were never there, it is no accident that Fox News has to use Hilary Clinton to keep the base riled up.

    Well he sure wasn’t wasting his time writing any articles. Total count hovers around zero.

    How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness?

    On the White folks scale, sure Jews are on average more pushy, obnoxious and shameless.

    But if that’s the standard shouldn’t the percentage who are black be much higher?

    More than just personal energy isn’t this also the Revenge of the Ugly Guys?

    These perverts are mostly well below average in looks and demeanor. And average in America is low to start with.

    > These perverts

    Who?

    From BusinessInsider:


    Several former clerks and externs for a federal court alleged that Judge Alex Kozinski made sexually suggestive comments to them. At least two former clerks alleged that he asked them to watch pornography in his chambers.

     

    That's a new one - forced pornography watching.

    Emily Murphy, another former clerk on the 9th Circuit in 2012, alleged in the report that as she was talking with other clerks about a particular gym that wasn't busy, Kozinski approached her and said that she ought to work out naked if the gym wasn't as occupied.
     
    Maybe he just wanted her to develop more Qi energy.

    But now:


    Obama is not big on doing things that are unfashionable, but the rules against smoking indoors gave him an excuse for sneaking outside by himself or with one or two close friends and lighting up.
     
    This is a plus. "Energetic" people who behave like Energizer Bunny on Crack are obnoxious if not toxic. They wear everybody down, develop a lot of "dynamism" (i.e. change for change's sake) but otherwise don't manage to do much (except reap the plaudits at the end when they show off the work performed by others). A good talking-to in the emergency stairwell would be the right way to fix that.

    5 Feb 1990 NewYorkTimes sez Barry Sotero was elected “president” of the review.

    The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago's South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.
     
    Barry was, as usual, humble:

    ''The fact that I've been elected shows a lot of progress,'' Mr. Obama (sic) said today in an interview. ''It's encouraging. But it's important that stories like mine aren't used to say that everything is O.K. for blacks. You have to remember that for every one of me, there are hundreds or thousands of black students with at least equal talent who don't get a chance,'' he said, alluding to poverty or growing up in a drug environment.

  6. Just as the Henry Adams “dynamo” signalled the global emergence of the American Empire, this emotional outpouring and airing out of the sicko sex attacker behaviour from the evil ruling class signals the upcoming implosion of the American Empire.

    The American Empire has always been about electricity or electronics. Even now, the WASP / Jew ruling class is holding on to power using electronically conjured up dollars and asset purchases to not only stay in power, but also to forestall the retaliations against them sure to come from regular, ordinary White Core Americans.

    Harvey Weinstein and electronically conjured up dollars mean the American Empire ain’t got too many more tomorrows.

  7. “Energy” is close but I’m not sure we really have a word for this. Whatever it is, it is something that self-made men (especially but not only Jewish men) tend to have and that most women and NAMs don’t. It is some combination of intelligence and drive. Kozinski came to the US at age 12 not speaking a word of English and he caught up enough to attend (and be a top student) at UCLA Law School. How many Hondurans or Mexicans come here at age 12 and end up finishing at the top of their law school class?

    This morning I was flipping channels and came across a public TV show where a Mexican artisan was making a Tree of Life which is some kind of Mexican folk art made of clay. She was very skilled with her hands but in the course of the interview it came out that she had lived in San Antonio, Texas for the last 12 years. The interview was in Spanish and I had the impression that this woman had not really learned a word of English in 12 years. 12 years after Kozinski landed, he was a Supreme Court clerk for Chief Justice Burger.

    His grandfather, Joseph Burger, had emigrated from Tyrol, Austria and joined the Union Army when he was 12. Joseph Burger fought and was wounded in the Civil War, resulting in the loss of his right arm and was awarded the Medal of Honor at the age of 14. Joseph Burger by age 16 became the youngest Captain in the Union Army

    Here are two guys as evidence that a psychotic level of hard work can overcome just about anything. Both of them think college is a waste of time. One is Guy Vanyerchuk and the other Grant Cardone. Vanyerchuk is part-Jew originally from Belarus who grew up in NJ. He went to a non-competitive college in Massachusetts (Mount Ida College) and has read 4 books in his life (the only one that made an impression is a biography of Joe Namath). He’s written more books than he’s read. Grant Cardone grew up blue collar in Louisiana and spent 5 years at McNeese State College getting a degree. I don’t think Grant has spent much time reading books, bro. Now, both Vanyerchuk and Cardone are each worth 9 figures.

    I actually like your example from fiction. Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil "the Turk" Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey. And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael's life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business. It's just fiction but it illustrates my point. For the most part, successful men take risks. Sometimes the risk is just social embarrassment. Sometimes it's more serious. From the outside, it can be difficult to tell exactly how a high status person achieved their status.

    I'm kinda skeptical of this claim since many of the men going down are non-Jews. In fact, the Left stood by Bill Clinton (a non-Jew) even though one of his sexual conquests was Monica Lewinsky (Jewish).

    If it was about protecting daughters, one would expect that prominent Jews on the Left would have freaked out about Bill Clinton's liason with Monica Lewinsky and demanded his removal from office.

    Look, I know you really really want to believe that Jewish people are uniquely sick and depraved, but let me ask you this: If you put a bunch of Gentile Whites in positions of power in entertainment and journalism where they regularly had contact with lots of eager young women, don't you think that just maybe, some of them would leverage their position for sex or at least try?

    No, but plenty of them are very much f*ckable. Note that many of his law clerks have said that he did absolutely nothing out of line.

    I agree, but to me, inviting a girl to your office and asking her opinion about a pornographic image is a way of testing the waters.

    Besides, Kozinsky used to be pretty handsome. 10 or 20 years ago, there would surely have been female subordinates who were sexually interested in him due to his looks and social status.

    Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters
     
    Perhaps, but seeing that aggressive kiss makes me think that in general there is a lot more on his mind than just intellectual discourse. Besides, he allegedly suggested to one girl that she exercise naked. Assuming that this happened, it's difficult to see it as mere intellectual discussion. Instead, this seems like classic flirting to me. It's a somewhat sexual comment that both people can just dismiss as a joke, but it also gives the girl an opening to escalate.

    Actually, some female law school grads are pretty attractive. They are, after all, young-ish women in most cases in their early to mid 20s, and in their socioeconomic class they are unlikely to be obese.

    Judge Kozinski is actually known for hiring attractive female law clerks. Most of them are very bright as well. And he has a reputation for skating the edge of appropriate with his comments. He works very well with aggressive women who will push back. Like if the one who felt uncomfortable had called him a pervert or dirty old man, he would actually have taken that in stride. Thing is, he's so aggressive himself that he can't imagine somebody just freezing up.

    I'll be curious to see if there are other complaints forthcoming. Some women might have experienced something similar and not care to come forward themselves, for a variety of reasons.

    Kozinski also has a reputation for being brilliant and extremely demanding with his clerks, who are expected to work very long hours. He is also a big string-puller on behalf of his clerks, and he used to be a huge "feeder judge" for Supreme Court clerkships. Less so since O'Connor left the Court.

    Not that any of these women will be punished for oversharing during the me too madness. But it is a bad career move.

    Perhaps it’s unrelated but most of the male studs in the pioneering New York so called ‘Golden Age’ of porn, back in the early 1970s, were Jewish – as can be readily ‘ritual covenantly’ observed.

    One must remember that back in the day, porn even of the ‘mildest’ type was strictly taboo, and actual publication of the tumescent male organs, never mind actual penetration, was shocking to degree beyond realisation of today’s porn-fed youth.

    Methinks it had more than a little to do with chutzpah – plus the desire to get ‘one’s end away’ for zero cost.
    Curiously, there seems to be a Jewish female equivalent of the brazen Hebrew stud, in that a certain type of JAP, seems to be ‘out of control’ with a certain type of neurotic,precocious,exaggerrated slutty sexuality.
    One thinks of Nancy Spungen, Amy Winehouse and the Orthodox raised ‘Queen of alt-porn’ Joanna Angel.

    Like all the vice industries, gambling, prostitution, porn, drugs are incredibly profitable. All but porn are very risky from competitors, customers and the law. Legal gambling requires a big investment and managing casinos with all the employees, customers and problems of running a resort. Prostitution is messy.

    But porn? It's easy compared to the rest of the vice businesses. Anyone with a camera can do it. Before cameras anyone with a pen could write a porn novel or even easier draw some pictures. In the old days porn salesmen often started out by going to bars with a stack of dirty pictures. It's very easy compared with managing a couple prostitutes the customers and competitors.

    A lot of 19th and early 20th century porn was naked lady pictures. Married couples did it for the money. She posed, he took the pictures and peddled them in a big town miles away.

    One of the greatest real estate fortunes in California is based on porn. They were German Jews They met in a concentration camp got married when WW2 ended and came to San Francisco. They had a little money from her family and started a small porn business. They made money and invested in high end residential real estate in San Francisco, Sea Cliff via presidio heights pacific heights cow hollow Russian and nob hill the marina to Lombard st.

    If you rent a $8,000 a month apartment in those areas it's probably owned by that family.

    They built entire shopping centers in San Diego. They are billionaires and it started 70 years ago with some still and movie cameras and a few male and female prostitutes.

    how many attractive young female law clerks eagerly got down on their knees for Kozinsky?

    None? I haven’t read any allegations yet like that. He’s accused of making a few female clerks feel uncomfortable. No allegations yet that he laid a hand on anyone.

    That there is the nut of the issue however. Females, as clerks or whatever, are trained from birth to feel uncomfortable and to find offense anymore. Stranger Danger. Rape Culture. 'Harassment'. It allows them to exercise a new feminist privilege where they to pick and choose between who may look at them freely(Clooney-Easque men) and who makes them "uncomfortable" or "creeped out" (another one that keeps cropping up from women who creep ME out). Of course, if the guy that creeps her out holds an Oscar in his hands, it's ok for HIM to creep her out for now, she can always re-visit the issue later in the press. Every woman at work now has a green light to ruin any man who looks at her. It's UN-fucking-believable what's going on. Imagine the poison in every business where the men and women have to mix.

    They're trained and formally educated from birth in looking for discomfort, in finding offense. Most of liberals arts is just this and so how could any man not have one psycho in his life? That's these, every single one of them..

    Passive/aggressive dynamics.

    Even Pervy Weinstein saw himself this way.

    If a woman said No, HE was the victim, akin to Jews who suffered Golfocaust? What? Keep me out of your cuntry club?

    This dynamics spread to homos. Homos now demand that the world worship and celebrate them. They act aggressive but make it seem like they are the victims. They ruin lives of those who won’t bend over but act like they’re the wronged ones.

    Hitler acted this way too. Very aggressive but always making Germany out to be the passive victim. Pat Buchanan’s UNNECESSARY WAR is exasperating because it uses such passive/aggressive logic, i.e. Hitler was ‘forced’ into making these decisions that led to WWII.

    But then, US foreign policy has gone the same way. The main aggressor in the world, it always plays the victim or plays the role of champion of the little guy against the big bad guy.

    How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness?
     
    I would say shamelessness has the most to due with it. Jews just don't feel shame about corrupting the morals or hurting feelings of gentile women. Just read Philip Roth.

    Most guys get worn down by rejection by women and resolve to improve their batting average by not attempting quite so hopeless approaches.
     
    Many shy men who struggle with women are unable to pick up on, or too fearful to respond to, signs of interest from females. These men don't want to have their own feelings hurt or to hurt the feelings of the women they desire.

    When these men do overcome their fears and find a female who shares their feelings, memories of past anxiety encourages them to invest heavily in their relationship and make it last. These men become happily blind to the signs of interest of other women.

    The term batting average is awkward. Most guys get to the point where they never want to come up the plate again if they can help it. Mentally most men forget about their "batting average" once happily married.

    Our current WASP ruling class along with the Jews are a bunch of money grubbing degenerates. They are incapable of creating anything but sleaze and criminality. They killed architecture at the turn of the last century along with art in general.

    Instead of Mont-Saint-Michel we get that grotesque RCC cathedral in Los Angeles or a tacky Crystal Cathedral or Osteen's stadium.

    In terms of art the Jews gave us the hideous Guggenheim, Annie Sprinkle. With modern art, it's hard to find the difference between trash and art.

    When our empire collapses, we won't leave elegant ruins and works of art. We'll leave burnt out strip malls and tacky brutalist corporate buildings. In terms of art, we haven't produced much in the last century that is worth saving or even commenting on.

If either of them had brought up some porn on his work computer and asked me what I thought about it, I would not have taken that as a sign of a “wide ranging, curious mind.” I would take that as a sign of perversion or, at the very least, a weirdo with no sense of propriety or boundaries.

    Still, showing someone inappropriate pictures and raping them (as Weinstein is alleged to have done) are two very different things - one is a social faux pas and the other is a felony. Part of what is so infuriating about Pussygate is that these have all gotten blurred together as if what Kozinski is alleged to have done and what Weinstein is alleged to have done are the same thing - they both belong on the list of "abusers" and get their picture on the same page when the papers publish their rogue's gallery of criminals.

    There is going to be a massive dislodgement of Jews and New England old money WASPs from government, academia, finance, the corporate media and the Deep State. That will occupy the energy of the new ruling class of White Core Americans for 10 to 20 years.

    To be concise, we are going from neo-Conservatism to neo-Normanism. The Jews and the East Anglians are on their way out just as the Saxons were dislodged from power by the Normans.

    The WASP / Jew ruling class that pushes globalization, endless overseas war and open borders mass immigration will be removed. Tom Cotton type whores will not be able to hide their treasonous neo-Conservative allegiances.

    The neo-Normans will give the WASP / Jew ruling class the same kind of treatment that the Normans gave the Saxons when they launched the Harrying of the North.

    No, but plenty of them are very much f*ckable. Note that many of his law clerks have said that he did absolutely nothing out of line.

    There is no evidence or even rumor that he so much as patted a clerk on the back, let alone that he was getting BJs from them

    I agree, but to me, inviting a girl to your office and asking her opinion about a pornographic image is a way of testing the waters.

    Besides, Kozinsky used to be pretty handsome. 10 or 20 years ago, there would surely have been female subordinates who were sexually interested in him due to his looks and social status.

    Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters

    Perhaps, but seeing that aggressive kiss makes me think that in general there is a lot more on his mind than just intellectual discourse. Besides, he allegedly suggested to one girl that she exercise naked. Assuming that this happened, it’s difficult to see it as mere intellectual discussion. Instead, this seems like classic flirting to me. It’s a somewhat sexual comment that both people can just dismiss as a joke, but it also gives the girl an opening to escalate.

    Most high status men in America achieved their positions because they were aggressive in the sense of willing to take risks. A man who is willing to take risks is a lot more likely to flirt with or try to seduce a subordinate at work.

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It's why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other. They were like 'made men' in a system of power where law, media, politics, finance, and academia have largely been dominated by Jews.

    But the Weinstein scandal has a bursting-dam effect because (1) he's such a big name (2) even Jews gave the OK on taking him down.
    So, the word got out that it's Hunting Season on the Pervs.

    PS. With Jewish men, it's not just aggression. It's passive/aggressive dynamics that makes them both driven & hungry and self-pitying & mugging-for-sympathy.

    It's like Grodin in HEARTBREAK KID and Hoffman in THE GRADUATE.

    The wasp country club thing always had sexual connotations. White fathers were keeping Jewish boys out to keep them away from their shikse daughters.
    So, Jews played both victim and ultimate victor.

    So, even when Jews play aggressive, they act like they're being passively done wrong to.

    Say NO to me? Boo hoo hoo. Let's try that again. Pee Wee way

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It’s why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.

    I actually like your example from fiction. Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil “the Turk” Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey. And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael’s life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business. It’s just fiction but it illustrates my point. For the most part, successful men take risks. Sometimes the risk is just social embarrassment. Sometimes it’s more serious. From the outside, it can be difficult to tell exactly how a high status person achieved their status.

    I think the above poster had more likely in mind a comparison of the brothers as Dons. Sonny took over at what was up to then the height of their power, and he left them in a worse position, requiring his father the broker peace on worse terms than when they were originally offered when the Turk showed up.

    Michael, on the other hand, rose from head of a declining Corleone crime family to the undisputed King of Mafialand. He did so by playing possum, setting up an empire in Vegas, then suddenly killing all his enemies at once. Even though his father figured out it was "Brazini all along" before he died, and they knew in-law Carlo set up Sonny from the get-go. Because delayed gratification.

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor, shooting the Turk and the Chief, and so on. But if he had done those things and not also been the son of the Don, he probably wouldn't have gotten anywhere. He'd just be a button man. Though a button man wouldn't have been in a position to carry out that hit.

    You can't view him like a self-made man, because he was a prince. A prince that was destined for the military or the clergy, let's say, but then put himself in the running for the crown after tragedy struck his father and brother. Different
    , @Anon
    Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil “the Turk” Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey.

    But it was not a rash decision. Michael figures the Corleones can weather the storm because they got some media guys on the payroll that can shift the narrative. Also, Corleones also got insiders in the police department to leak the whereabouts of the meeting place. And they got contacts in Sicily who can protect Michael for awhile and it's also a chance for Michael to do an aliyah.

    So, it was a planned venture than just crazy decision. Corleones are in a business where you cannot survive unless one is willing to take great risks once awhile. The question is how well planned it is.

    And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael’s life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business.

    That depends on identification. If Michael identifies only as an American Individual, what you say would be correct. But he comes to identify strongly with his family. His father getting shot and then being targeted a the hospital was his 'covenant' moment with the family. His soul imprinted with the family.
    It's a strange moment because Vito is both happy and worried about this. He raised Michael to be different, to stay out of the family business and become a good legit American. And yet, he must also be grateful because Michael feels blood is stronger than ink.

    Who?

    From BusinessInsider:

    Several former clerks and externs for a federal court alleged that Judge Alex Kozinski made sexually suggestive comments to them. At least two former clerks alleged that he asked them to watch pornography in his chambers.

    That’s a new one – forced pornography watching.

    Emily Murphy, another former clerk on the 9th Circuit in 2012, alleged in the report that as she was talking with other clerks about a particular gym that wasn’t busy, Kozinski approached her and said that she ought to work out naked if the gym wasn’t as occupied.

    Maybe he just wanted her to develop more Qi energy.

    But now:

    Obama is not big on doing things that are unfashionable, but the rules against smoking indoors gave him an excuse for sneaking outside by himself or with one or two close friends and lighting up.

    This is a plus. “Energetic” people who behave like Energizer Bunny on Crack are obnoxious if not toxic. They wear everybody down, develop a lot of “dynamism” (i.e. change for change’s sake) but otherwise don’t manage to do much (except reap the plaudits at the end when they show off the work performed by others). A good talking-to in the emergency stairwell would be the right way to fix that.

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other.

    I’m kinda skeptical of this claim since many of the men going down are non-Jews. In fact, the Left stood by Bill Clinton (a non-Jew) even though one of his sexual conquests was Monica Lewinsky (Jewish).

    If it was about protecting daughters, one would expect that prominent Jews on the Left would have freaked out about Bill Clinton’s liason with Monica Lewinsky and demanded his removal from office.

    Look, I know you really really want to believe that Jewish people are uniquely sick and depraved, but let me ask you this: If you put a bunch of Gentile Whites in positions of power in entertainment and journalism where they regularly had contact with lots of eager young women, don’t you think that just maybe, some of them would leverage their position for sex or at least try?

    No, I don't.
    Depravity is world-wide.
    Look how Mexicans treat Mexicans. So terribly that so many Mexers wanna come here.
    Look at the sicko nation of Japan where 1/200 women are in porn industry.
    Look at demented North Korea and how it treats its people.
    Look at Chinese treatment of dogs and cats.
    Look at India with bottomless corruption and filth. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE was so pukey I turned it off.
    Look at Muslims and their gross cousin marriages and barbarism.
    As for blacks and Africa, where does one start?

    The problem with Jews is threefold.

    1. Whereas Mexers mainly abuse Mexers and Japanese mainly exploit Japanese, Jews have power over masses of gentiles who are increasingly insulted and degraded. "Who, Whom" matters. It's like black rulers treated black Africans worse than white Afrikaners did, but blacks complained about South Africa cuz it was about whites oppressing blacks. So, gentiles will notice more when the Other is doing them wrong.

    2. Jews have great power. While various groups in America have some power and resort to criminality and bad behavior, Jewish abuses affect more people because of much greater power. Crooked Jews in Wall street or rabid Zionists in State Department will do far more damage than Gypsy thieves or Polish chop-shoppers. Power amplifies the problem. If Jews had little power but acted 1000x worse, it wouldn't matter because their power would be inconsequential. Look at American Indians. They are pretty depraved, addicted to alcohol and watching too much TV. But, their depravity has no impact outside their reservations since they have no power.

    3. Cult of Eternal Victimhood protects Jews from scrutiny and criticism, which makes the behavior even worse and more hypocritical as Jewish self-image(as wise holy victims and survivors) becomes increasingly at odds with Jewish misbehavior.
    Maybe the Weinstein thing is a beginning of a cleanup, what David Brooks has been advising in his columns. But Jews walk a tightrope on this because Paranoy's Complaint. Even as the Power wants to clamp down on Portnoys-gone-wild, there is the lingering paranoia that airing dirty laundry will give ammo to the Enemites.

  29. How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness? Most guys get worn down by rejection by women and resolve to improve their batting average by not attempting quite so hopeless approaches.

    Has nothing to do with it. Jews aren’t especially energetic, just obsessive-compulsive pricks for the most part. The men doing this stuff are in positions of power and wealth. They can get away with stuff that would end the career of any middle-class white guy.

    Like that book 50 shades of grey. The woman goes along with the billionaire because he’s good looking, wealthy and powerful, Do you think she’s do the B&D with Billy Bob and his magic ping pong paddle who hangs out at the bar? Hell no. She’d call the cops and say “he tried to rape me”.

    Status and wealth plays a major role in what you can get away with.

    Our current WASP ruling class along with the Jews are a bunch of money grubbing degenerates. They are incapable of creating anything but sleaze and criminality. They killed architecture at the turn of the last century along with art in general.

    Instead of Mont-Saint-Michel we get that grotesque RCC cathedral in Los Angeles or a tacky Crystal Cathedral or Osteen’s stadium.

    In terms of art the Jews gave us the hideous Guggenheim, Annie Sprinkle. With modern art, it’s hard to find the difference between trash and art.

    When our empire collapses, we won’t leave elegant ruins and works of art. We’ll leave burnt out strip malls and tacky brutalist corporate buildings. In terms of art, we haven’t produced much in the last century that is worth saving or even commenting on.

    Passive/aggressive dynamics.

    Even Pervy Weinstein saw himself this way.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yfJQUoxN3U

    If a woman said No, HE was the victim, akin to Jews who suffered Golfocaust? What? Keep me out of your cuntry club?

    This dynamics spread to homos. Homos now demand that the world worship and celebrate them. They act aggressive but make it seem like they are the victims. They ruin lives of those who won't bend over but act like they're the wronged ones.

    Hitler acted this way too. Very aggressive but always making Germany out to be the passive victim. Pat Buchanan's UNNECESSARY WAR is exasperating because it uses such passive/aggressive logic, i.e. Hitler was 'forced' into making these decisions that led to WWII.

    But then, US foreign policy has gone the same way. The main aggressor in the world, it always plays the victim or plays the role of champion of the little guy against the big bad guy.

  36. I think Kosczinski and the Ninth Circuit are a bad judicial joke.

    But after reading the allegations against him I realized that his accusers are basically snowflakes offended by behavior that at worst amounted to a series of unpleasant social faux pas.

    HOWEVER, after seeing that clip of him publicly mouth-mangling a young woman who was clearly trying to escape from his grasp, I’m no longer quite so sure that Koszinski may not have committed some actionable offenses in later life.

    In contrast, Obama seems unlikely to be named because he gets worn out psychologically by personal contact.

    I.e. he's what's commonly called an 'introvert'. So was Richard Nixon. What's odd is that they went into politics (and prospered in politics).

    Introversion is more taxing than shyness. It’s a real curse, believe me! I’m an introvert who has to fake everyday being an extrovert. Thank god I’m not shy too! Just two hours interacting with other people, even friends and close family is an ordeal. You feel exhausted, you want to run for the door, you want to be alone.
    Obama doesn’t strike me as a stereotypical introvert. He’s just brain-dead and low-energy.

  38. Judge Alex Kozinski has a lifetime appointment. Then he should just tough it out. Here is one accusation:

    Another former 9th Circuit Court clerk alleged that she was sitting next to Kozinski during dinner around 5 years ago, when he picked up the tablecloth to see her legs. Kozinski reportedly said to her at the time that he wanted to see if she was “wearing pants because it’s cold out.”
    “It made me uncomfortable, and it didn’t seem appropriate,” told The Post.

    How come regretful women get to cry out inappropriate 10 years after the fact, and thereby judge guys? When do we guys get to use this word and publicly judge women’s behavior? I have not seen one guy use “inappropriate” since the sexual harassment revolution bandwagon was kicked off by Rose McGowan and Weinstein.

    "Energy" is close but I'm not sure we really have a word for this. Whatever it is, it is something that self-made men (especially but not only Jewish men) tend to have and that most women and NAMs don't. It is some combination of intelligence and drive. Kozinski came to the US at age 12 not speaking a word of English and he caught up enough to attend (and be a top student) at UCLA Law School. How many Hondurans or Mexicans come here at age 12 and end up finishing at the top of their law school class?

    This morning I was flipping channels and came across a public TV show where a Mexican artisan was making a Tree of Life which is some kind of Mexican folk art made of clay. She was very skilled with her hands but in the course of the interview it came out that she had lived in San Antonio, Texas for the last 12 years. The interview was in Spanish and I had the impression that this woman had not really learned a word of English in 12 years. 12 years after Kozinski landed, he was a Supreme Court clerk for Chief Justice Burger.

    12 years after Kozinski landed, he was a Supreme Court clerk for Chief Justice Burger.


    His grandfather, Joseph Burger, had emigrated from Tyrol, Austria and joined the Union Army when he was 12. Joseph Burger fought and was wounded in the Civil War, resulting in the loss of his right arm and was awarded the Medal of Honor at the age of 14. Joseph Burger by age 16 became the youngest Captain in the Union Army

    I'm a man who clerked for two different federal judges. If either of them had brought up some porn on his work computer and asked me what I thought about it, I would not have taken that as a sign of a "wide ranging, curious mind." I would take that as a sign of perversion or, at the very least, a weirdo with no sense of propriety or boundaries.

    Still, showing someone inappropriate pictures and raping them (as Weinstein is alleged to have done) are two very different things – one is a social faux pas and the other is a felony. Part of what is so infuriating about Pussygate is that these have all gotten blurred together as if what Kozinski is alleged to have done and what Weinstein is alleged to have done are the same thing – they both belong on the list of “abusers” and get their picture on the same page when the papers publish their rogue’s gallery of criminals.

    I remember Anita Hill's story. In fact, I believed her. The problem is, it all added up to a big nothing-burger. Clarence Thomas asked her out for a date a few times and he made a few mildly off-color remarks in her presence. If she had been making it up I'm sure she would have goosed it up quite a bit.

    One of the funny things was watching Orrin Hatch act so shocked and appalled by what Thomas was supposed to have done. What a cuck.

  42. Was Kozinski showing these women porn on his own private laptop or his work computer? Apart from the alleged harrassment – inviting women to look at the porn stash on your computer – is this guy unaware that even just having porn on your computer can be a firing offense. There are probably hundreds of federal employees fired every year for having porn on their work computer. How they can be so reckless is beyond me. You’d think by now they would know – especially a federal judge and a guy who is obviously pretty smart.

    Is this discussion really proceeding in ignorance of the fact that a disciplinary committee chaired by Chief Justice Rehnquist censured Kozinski for having porn on his work computer? 'He should watch his porn at home,' or to that effect.

    Another somewhat relevant fact that seems to have been missed here: Kozinski's accuser is today a writer of romance novels. (That is, she is well-imbued with sexual hysterics.)

    [A judge this crazy must have done worse to his clerks - and to the parties to the cases before him - than show a clerk porno. An essentially harmless act, but given American puritanism, a pathological lack of basic judgment. What I see as worst about the present puritan witch hunt is that it elevates a minor aspect of power disparities in the workplace. Kozinski's having told his clerks that they're his slaves (and acting that way) is to me a far worse offense than sharing porn.]

    Perhaps it's unrelated but most of the male studs in the pioneering New York so called 'Golden Age' of porn, back in the early 1970s, were Jewish - as can be readily 'ritual covenantly' observed.

    One must remember that back in the day, porn even of the 'mildest' type was strictly taboo, and actual publication of the tumescent male organs, never mind actual penetration, was shocking to degree beyond realisation of today's porn-fed youth.

    Methinks it had more than a little to do with chutzpah - plus the desire to get 'one's end away' for zero cost.
    Curiously, there seems to be a Jewish female equivalent of the brazen Hebrew stud, in that a certain type of JAP, seems to be 'out of control' with a certain type of neurotic,precocious,exaggerrated slutty sexuality.
    One thinks of Nancy Spungen, Amy Winehouse and the Orthodox raised 'Queen of alt-porn' Joanna Angel.

    Like all the vice industries, gambling, prostitution, porn, drugs are incredibly profitable. All but porn are very risky from competitors, customers and the law. Legal gambling requires a big investment and managing casinos with all the employees, customers and problems of running a resort. Prostitution is messy.

    But porn? It’s easy compared to the rest of the vice businesses. Anyone with a camera can do it. Before cameras anyone with a pen could write a porn novel or even easier draw some pictures. In the old days porn salesmen often started out by going to bars with a stack of dirty pictures. It’s very easy compared with managing a couple prostitutes the customers and competitors.

    A lot of 19th and early 20th century porn was naked lady pictures. Married couples did it for the money. She posed, he took the pictures and peddled them in a big town miles away.

    One of the greatest real estate fortunes in California is based on porn. They were German Jews They met in a concentration camp got married when WW2 ended and came to San Francisco. They had a little money from her family and started a small porn business. They made money and invested in high end residential real estate in San Francisco, Sea Cliff via presidio heights pacific heights cow hollow Russian and nob hill the marina to Lombard st.

    If you rent a $8,000 a month apartment in those areas it’s probably owned by that family.

    They built entire shopping centers in San Diego. They are billionaires and it started 70 years ago with some still and movie cameras and a few male and female prostitutes.

    From the 1920s to "modern times", and in many places all the way to today at "adult bookstores" and similar purveyors, organized crime controlled most or all of the porno business. If you were one guy selling 8mm reels or 32 page offset printed picture books in Wichita, you might stay under the radar of both the mob and the vice cops, but any bigger and they'd get you. This was a state felony and in most states there were always one or two guys in the slam for this. But the Mob was usually the bigger threat in Mob towns: they would kill you if you competed with them. They might "license" you by approving of it and your paying the guys up the chain and they might not.

    In those days a pretty young girl could make a month's rent by posing for a dozen "nudie cutie" pictures and actual hardcore action could net her quite a bit more. Apparently contrary to popular opinion, very few nude models or still/movie "actresses" were actual hookers: generally prostitutes, then and now, will do a lot of things but not do it on camera.

    In the 70, the Supreme Court and courts generally put the kibosh on state and federal pornography legislation and the so called "Golden Age" erupted. Again, this industry was heavily mobbed up, as well as having a preponderance of Jewish talent and distribution at work. The Internet and "amateur" and "gonzo" eliminated this and made it possible to download an enormous amount of pornographic video for free. Much of this is shot in foreign countries and in some where there are few Jews, so I doubt strongly this can be called a "Jewish plot".

    Usually, amateur video can be distinguished as to where it's shot by the furniture, drapery, linens, background sounds such as a TV broadcast or radio, and things like electrical outlets.

    Tons of this stuff comes from places like Indonesia, India, and West Africa as well as Russia, and other Slavic speaking countries. Brazil seems to produce more than Hispanophone South America.

    Saudi Arabia, however, does not seem to produce this stuff.

    I would say shamelessness has the most to due with it. Jews just don’t feel shame about corrupting the morals or hurting feelings of gentile women. Just read Philip Roth.

    Most guys get worn down by rejection by women and resolve to improve their batting average by not attempting quite so hopeless approaches.

    Many shy men who struggle with women are unable to pick up on, or too fearful to respond to, signs of interest from females. These men don’t want to have their own feelings hurt or to hurt the feelings of the women they desire.

    When these men do overcome their fears and find a female who shares their feelings, memories of past anxiety encourages them to invest heavily in their relationship and make it last. These men become happily blind to the signs of interest of other women.

    The term batting average is awkward. Most guys get to the point where they never want to come up the plate again if they can help it. Mentally most men forget about their “batting average” once happily married.

    In the Paul Simon bio HOMEWARD BOUND, it says Simon and Artie at the age of 13 went to Brill building with their own song. They were rejected but they had balls.

    An interesting passage from the book:

    Education has been a central pillar of American Jewish Culture since 1889, when the primarily upscale German Jews whose parents arrived in the mid 19th century created the Educational Alliance, a privately funded group dedicated to teaching both English and the fundamentals of American society and social etiquette to the waves of unschooled Jewish workers and farmers washing in from eastern Europe. It was an exercise in organized altruism -- one freighted with condescension. If you'd picked up a copy of the Jewish Messenger from that period, you'd have read pro-Educational Alliance editorials that dismissed the unsophisticated new arrivals as "slovenly in dress, loud in manners, and vulgar in discourse." Louis(Paul's father) never achieved that level of smugness, certainly not in public, but he made a point of telling his son, repeatedly, that the highest calling in life was to teach others the things you'd learned for yourself... Paul was dutiful enough to listen to his dad, but he had no intention of heeding him.

    A Federal judge's chambers are not Hollywood and female law clerks are not sexy Hollywood actresses There is no evidence or even rumor that he so much as patted a clerk on the back, let alone that he was getting BJs from them or that he would have even wanted to given the looks and personality of most of them. Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters the same way he might talk about his interest in hurricanes or volcanoes or a thousand other things.

    Actually, some female law school grads are pretty attractive. They are, after all, young-ish women in most cases in their early to mid 20s, and in their socioeconomic class they are unlikely to be obese.

    Judge Kozinski is actually known for hiring attractive female law clerks. Most of them are very bright as well. And he has a reputation for skating the edge of appropriate with his comments. He works very well with aggressive women who will push back. Like if the one who felt uncomfortable had called him a pervert or dirty old man, he would actually have taken that in stride. Thing is, he’s so aggressive himself that he can’t imagine somebody just freezing up.

    I’ll be curious to see if there are other complaints forthcoming. Some women might have experienced something similar and not care to come forward themselves, for a variety of reasons.

    Kozinski also has a reputation for being brilliant and extremely demanding with his clerks, who are expected to work very long hours. He is also a big string-puller on behalf of his clerks, and he used to be a huge “feeder judge” for Supreme Court clerkships. Less so since O’Connor left the Court.

    "Energy" is close but I'm not sure we really have a word for this. Whatever it is, it is something that self-made men (especially but not only Jewish men) tend to have and that most women and NAMs don't. It is some combination of intelligence and drive. Kozinski came to the US at age 12 not speaking a word of English and he caught up enough to attend (and be a top student) at UCLA Law School. How many Hondurans or Mexicans come here at age 12 and end up finishing at the top of their law school class?

    This morning I was flipping channels and came across a public TV show where a Mexican artisan was making a Tree of Life which is some kind of Mexican folk art made of clay. She was very skilled with her hands but in the course of the interview it came out that she had lived in San Antonio, Texas for the last 12 years. The interview was in Spanish and I had the impression that this woman had not really learned a word of English in 12 years. 12 years after Kozinski landed, he was a Supreme Court clerk for Chief Justice Burger.

    Here are two guys as evidence that a psychotic level of hard work can overcome just about anything. Both of them think college is a waste of time. One is Guy Vanyerchuk and the other Grant Cardone. Vanyerchuk is part-Jew originally from Belarus who grew up in NJ. He went to a non-competitive college in Massachusetts (Mount Ida College) and has read 4 books in his life (the only one that made an impression is a biography of Joe Namath). He’s written more books than he’s read. Grant Cardone grew up blue collar in Louisiana and spent 5 years at McNeese State College getting a degree. I don’t think Grant has spent much time reading books, bro. Now, both Vanyerchuk and Cardone are each worth 9 figures.

    When he was editor of the Harvard Law Review, for example, he spent a huge amount of time outside smoking.

     

    Well he sure wasn't wasting his time writing any articles. Total count hovers around zero.

    How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness?
     
    On the White folks scale, sure Jews are on average more pushy, obnoxious and shameless.

    But if that's the standard shouldn't the percentage who are black be much higher?

    More than just personal energy isn't this also the Revenge of the Ugly Guys?

    These perverts are mostly well below average in looks and demeanor. And average in America is low to start with.

    5 Feb 1990 NewYorkTimes sez Barry Sotero was elected “president” of the review.

    The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago’s South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.

    Barry was, as usual, humble:

    ”The fact that I’ve been elected shows a lot of progress,” Mr. Obama (sic) said today in an interview. ”It’s encouraging. But it’s important that stories like mine aren’t used to say that everything is O.K. for blacks. You have to remember that for every one of me, there are hundreds or thousands of black students with at least equal talent who don’t get a chance,” he said, alluding to poverty or growing up in a drug environment.

    Here's another hypothesis: Most high status men in America achieved their positions because they were aggressive in the sense of willing to take risks. A man who is willing to take risks is a lot more likely to flirt with or try to seduce a subordinate at work. From the perspective of 10 or 20 years ago, there was not much risk in doing what is now seen as serious sexual harassment and there was significantly upside -- how many attractive young female law clerks eagerly got down on their knees for Kozinsky? This is a man who can boost a young lawyer's career almost as much a a Harvey Weinstein can boost a young actress's career. Believe me, if a federal judge picks up the phone to recommend someone for a fancy job, any number of law firms will trip over themselves to hire that person.

    I think Obama is a special case -- he's about as far from being a self-made man as a politician can get. He was a reasonably intelligent black man who spoke Standard English who was groomed to be sold as a Black President. He didn't have to take much in the way of risks to get ahead.

    You obviously don’t know any judges and attorneys either men or women. Women attorneys are like all other women. They run from unattractive to beautiful. The young ones are obviously prettier than the middle aged. When they are at work, women attorneys dress in neat office attire. So they look better than someone schlumping along in jeans, sweatshirt, and hair scrapped back in a dowdy ponytail.

  61. I vaguely recall hearing about this guy’s porn predilection in 2004 from a former law clerk of his.

    He foolishly left his porn stash in an unlocked folder on his personal website. Someone just clicked through and found it. Amazing how dumb a smart person can be when they venture outside of their area of expertise. If I remember correctly, people mostly complained about a picture of a naked women in animal body paint. But it also included a quiz that consisted of a mix of real and trans women – can you imagine the heat he would take today for that one.

  62. How much of this is just the guys with the most energy getting called out? I’ve never seen anybody try to quantify interpersonal “energy,” but it sure seems to be something of a common denominator among the perps in Weinsteingate. Most of these guys getting named are horny bastards mostly because they are Not Shy and Not Exhausted from Emotional Labor.

    I thought of those recent observations on this blog when I heard about Kozinski. “They got another one.”

    One thing that might be an issue: back in 2008, Kozinski got caught up in what might have been a prelude to this affair when a home server he was running, and which contained sexually-explicit material (including the material he was showing to his clerks), turned out to be improperly secured and was available to the public. Kozinski was forced to recuse himself from an obscenity trial and sit through a misconduct investigation over the matter. At the time, the general consensus was that this was much ado over nothing, that Kozinski’s privacy had been invaded by a disgruntled litigant with an axe to grind, and the investigation basically exonerated him. He did give testimony under oath and presented evidence in the ethics investigation however, and the fact that he was forcing this material on his clerks hadn’t come to light at the time, so it’s possible that he concealed that fact or otherwise misled the committee investigating him.

    In contrast, Obama seems unlikely to be named because he gets worn out psychologically by personal contact.

    I.e. he's what's commonly called an 'introvert'. So was Richard Nixon. What's odd is that they went into politics (and prospered in politics).

    Not sure what his 'type' is supposed to be. He's quite driven. Given that he had a law partnership that was giving him a 7-digit income, his interest in holding public office in his working prime is eccentric. He managed to win the Republican U.S. Senate primary in 2012 by assiduous campaigning in small venues. People who know Cruz personally say he's quite intense and effective one-on-one.

    Passive/aggressive dynamics.

    Even Pervy Weinstein saw himself this way.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yfJQUoxN3U

    If a woman said No, HE was the victim, akin to Jews who suffered Golfocaust? What? Keep me out of your cuntry club?

    This dynamics spread to homos. Homos now demand that the world worship and celebrate them. They act aggressive but make it seem like they are the victims. They ruin lives of those who won't bend over but act like they're the wronged ones.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZyWV-QAq6o

    Hitler acted this way too. Very aggressive but always making Germany out to be the passive victim. Pat Buchanan's UNNECESSARY WAR is exasperating because it uses such passive/aggressive logic, i.e. Hitler was 'forced' into making these decisions that led to WWII.

    But then, US foreign policy has gone the same way. The main aggressor in the world, it always plays the victim or plays the role of champion of the little guy against the big bad guy.

This was more or less the norm in American politics until the Bushes and the Clintons and the Latin Americanization of America. Obama doesn't seem to have any Latins in his family (nor Jews unless you count his wife's cousin, the black "rabbi"). Obama knows that even if he spends the rest of his life golfing (which seems to be his plan) his place in American history as America's First Black President (he beat women and the Jews and the Latinos and every other group except WASP men and 1 Irish Catholic into the White House) is secure.

    When you win the top job, you've prospered.


    Nixon fought his way into the White House, Obama was the right guy at the right time.

    Nixon was handed the Republican nomination on a silver platter 3x. The third time, he was the incumbent President, so that's unremarkable. The 2d time, the Goldwater constituency did not run a candidate until Ronald Reagan put his name forward a day before the balloting at the convention. The liberal Republicans were tripping over their shoelaces the whole season (the most amusing episode of which was Nelson Rockefeller calling a press conference in April 1968 to announce he had nothing to announce). Rockefeller entered no primaries (though did manage a successful write-in candidacy in one state). The Vice Presidency did not, prior to 1960, confer any advantages in seeking election to the Presidency (except in those cases where the VP had succeeded to the office). Over a period of more than 150 years, only 3 VPs ever stood in a general election for the Presidency and only one did so as a major-party candidate. It's all rather odd that every significant figure in the Republican Party stood aside in 1960 and let Nixon have it uncontested. (And that wasn't Eisenhower's doing; Eisenhower had at best a mixed opinion of Nixon).



    Nixon led a realignment of the Republican Party that has led to increasing GOP dominance of local governments and congress ever since.

    He did nothing of the kind. The rap on Nixon among Capitol Hill Republicans (Robert Dole and George Will to name two) was that the breakdown of Southern loyalty to the Democratic Party had given the Republicans a tremendous opportunity in 1972, but "we spent it all on the Presidential race" and "it was the Darwininan logic of Mr. Nixon's advisers that those who needed the help of friends for survival deserved neither friends nor survival". Retrospectively, you can see the advantage the Democrats had in federal politics dissipated around that time, but the social catastrophes of the era (e.g. 700 urban riots, a doubling of the homicide rate, and bloody cock-ups in Indochina) were sufficient to do that. Nixon's scandals took a chunk out of the Republican Party, and by 1976 they held 1/3 of the seats in the federal legislature and controlled just 4 state legislatures. It wasn't until 20 years after Nixon's retirement that they reached parity in legislative contests.



    Obama did nothing as the Democratic Party decayed during the last decade into a group of ethnic factions fighting for dominance. Even in disgrace Nixon was still an influential statesman behind the scenes. Obama has vanished as if he were never there, it is no accident that Fox News has to use Hilary Clinton to keep the base riled up.

    For crying out loud, Sailer, you’ll never get anywhere with this crap. Next thing you know, you’ll come out with some sort of fake news “science” about how human beings evolved from lower animal forms, and human beings are therefore basically animals fueled by the same source of animal energy, hormones like testosterone and adrenaline that push men to succeed even if thousands have failed and died before them. Sure, sure I can hear you saying that the same men who take the life by the throat and force it to give them what they want are the same guys who take women by the pussy to get what they want.

    Get with the program, Sailer. Men can be photoshopped and focus-grouped just like the commercials that show us how life should be. High achieving, high energy, high creativity men – check.

  72. In contrast, Obama seems unlikely to be named because he gets worn out psychologically by personal contact. That’s one explanation for why he stuck with smoking in an era when elites were against smoking.

    The personality hypothesis focused on the association between smoking and higher level of neuroticism and anxiety. This hypothesis proposed that anxiety as a symptom of schizophrenia may contribute to smoking.

    The psychological tool hypothesis argues that smokers use nicotine to manipulate their mental state in response to various environmental conditions, such as reducing stress and managing negative emotions. Research on this hypothesis notes that people with schizophrenia often cannot cope with problems in constructive ways, so use of smoking as a psychological tool may result in a vicious cycle of more and more smoking.

    How much of it is just Jewish "energy"? As someone who knows Jews very well - a lot.

    But this can, and should, be applied to everything. How much of Jewish dominance is just energy? How much of Asian dominance in STEM?

    If, as has been well established, the IQ Bell Curve can't explain it, what else can?

    Energy, and motivation, are good places to start looking.

    Is it really surprising that the most ambitious men commit the most sexual assault?

    Are we surprised that great power comes with great crime?

    Without a Western Society to prey upon the natural level of Jewish accomplishment is that of
    “Fiddler on the Roof”.

    I consider any man who goes on a TV show like the Dating Game to be a nut. For someone who intends to be a judge, it's the height of ridiculousness. You're supposed to have more gravitas than that, and have more self-respect and dignity. I'd think any man doing so has a major screw loose somewhere.

    How much of this current phenomenon has something to do with Jewish energy and shamelessness?
     
    I would say shamelessness has the most to due with it. Jews just don't feel shame about corrupting the morals or hurting feelings of gentile women. Just read Philip Roth.

    Most guys get worn down by rejection by women and resolve to improve their batting average by not attempting quite so hopeless approaches.
     
    Many shy men who struggle with women are unable to pick up on, or too fearful to respond to, signs of interest from females. These men don't want to have their own feelings hurt or to hurt the feelings of the women they desire.

    When these men do overcome their fears and find a female who shares their feelings, memories of past anxiety encourages them to invest heavily in their relationship and make it last. These men become happily blind to the signs of interest of other women.

    The term batting average is awkward. Most guys get to the point where they never want to come up the plate again if they can help it. Mentally most men forget about their "batting average" once happily married.

    In the Paul Simon bio HOMEWARD BOUND, it says Simon and Artie at the age of 13 went to Brill building with their own song. They were rejected but they had balls.

    An interesting passage from the book:

    Education has been a central pillar of American Jewish Culture since 1889, when the primarily upscale German Jews whose parents arrived in the mid 19th century created the Educational Alliance, a privately funded group dedicated to teaching both English and the fundamentals of American society and social etiquette to the waves of unschooled Jewish workers and farmers washing in from eastern Europe. It was an exercise in organized altruism — one freighted with condescension. If you’d picked up a copy of the Jewish Messenger from that period, you’d have read pro-Educational Alliance editorials that dismissed the unsophisticated new arrivals as “slovenly in dress, loud in manners, and vulgar in discourse.” Louis(Paul’s father) never achieved that level of smugness, certainly not in public, but he made a point of telling his son, repeatedly, that the highest calling in life was to teach others the things you’d learned for yourself… Paul was dutiful enough to listen to his dad, but he had no intention of heeding him.

    Unfortunately that this level of self-knowledge and awareness is rare indeed among the Chosen. It is probably most strong in those of mixed racial lineage and among those whose understanding of why their expulsion from or flight from their former homes was necessary is most fresh.

    History has shown this self awareness is has been repeatedly lost on future generations.

    Funny thing about Jews.

    They prefer white race-ist-created nations but try to de-racinate them.

    Consider…. Jews were in the Russian Empire. Lots of them. Russians were less into race. They’d been mixed with Viking, Poles, and all manner of European blood. They even had some Tartar and Turkic blood. And there were many Jewish and Slavic mixing too.

    Italy and Latin nations, both in Europe and New World, were also less into race. They’d mixed far more. Mussolini always found Hitler’s radical racism off-putting.

    Given that Jews have feared white race-ism, you’d think they would have preferred the Latin and Slavic world. But Jews preferred the racially purer Germanic and Anglo worlds and those created by them. Jews preferred to move to US than to far more diverse and mixed Latin America. Jews wanted OUT from the race-mixed Russian Empire where many prominent Russians weren’t pure Russian, itself a category of impurity, which is why Anglos and Germans tended to look down on them ‘Asiatic’ buggers.

    Jews ran from Russia when they got the chance. And their preferred destiny were Anglo or Germanic-ruled lands where race-ism was strictly implemented: US, Canada, South Africa. Prior to rise of Hitler, Jews preferred to live in Germanic and Anglo lands than in Russia, the melting pot of ethnic groups.

    Jews noticed that white race-ist Anglo and Germanic nations had more rule of law, more development, more trust, more everything that made for good society. And that culture of trust was based on racial or ethnic homogeneity. In contrast, diverse societies seemed to be messy, unstable, corrupt, and inefficient… like the Ottoman Empire. It’s like what Putnam’s study showed about effect of diversity.

    So, Jews wanted to follow the white race-ist Anglos and Germanics who ran systems in which Jews would work hard and thrive. So, white race-ism created the best systems and those Jews preferred most.

    BUT, white race-ism could also mean white gentile uniting against Jewish power and competition, and the MOST frightening example of this was Nazi Germany. So, Jews tried to deracinate white race-ist nations…

    But if white race-ism goes, so will those wonderfully orderly society of rule of law where Jews have thrived most.

    Most high status men in America achieved their positions because they were aggressive in the sense of willing to take risks. A man who is willing to take risks is a lot more likely to flirt with or try to seduce a subordinate at work.

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It's why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other. They were like 'made men' in a system of power where law, media, politics, finance, and academia have largely been dominated by Jews.

    But the Weinstein scandal has a bursting-dam effect because (1) he's such a big name (2) even Jews gave the OK on taking him down.
    So, the word got out that it's Hunting Season on the Pervs.

    PS. With Jewish men, it's not just aggression. It's passive/aggressive dynamics that makes them both driven & hungry and self-pitying & mugging-for-sympathy.

    It's like Grodin in HEARTBREAK KID and Hoffman in THE GRADUATE.

    The wasp country club thing always had sexual connotations. White fathers were keeping Jewish boys out to keep them away from their shikse daughters.
    So, Jews played both victim and ultimate victor.

    So, even when Jews play aggressive, they act like they're being passively done wrong to.

    Say NO to me? Boo hoo hoo. Let's try that again. Pee Wee way

    White fathers were keeping Jewish boys out to keep them away from their shikse daughters.

    FYI – “shiksa” loosely translates as “whore” and “abomination.” Dunno if you knew that.

    So, even when Jews play aggressive, they act like they’re being passively done wrong to.

    I actually like your example from fiction. Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil "the Turk" Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey. And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael's life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business. It's just fiction but it illustrates my point. For the most part, successful men take risks. Sometimes the risk is just social embarrassment. Sometimes it's more serious. From the outside, it can be difficult to tell exactly how a high status person achieved their status.

    Good point.

    Successful men like Michael Corleone take calculated risks with positive expected value. Foolish, headstrong men like Sonny Corleone plunge into risks with negative expected value.

    White sense of fair play works well in supermajority White societies. When diversity free-riders creep in the optimal strategy is to adopt Jewish strategies to favor your own group. Exploit or be exploited.

  91. “Jews ran from Russia.”

    Actually, Jews were expelled from Western Europe and
    were BANNED by Russia in the 1500s-1700s. About 90%
    of the Ashkenazi Jews ended up in the Polish-Lithuanian
    Commonwealth which was then the largest country in
    Europe. At about 1 million sq. km. it was 50% larger than
    modern France. It included parts of today’s Lithuania, Belarus,
    and western Ukraine but it was dominated by Poland, its
    language and its culture.

    After the Commonwealth’s partitions by two Germans, one
    in Prussia and one in Russia, and the 1815 Congress of Vienna,
    the Jews in the western part of Poland were annexed by Prussia
    and became known as the German Jews. Those in central
    Poland were gradually incorporated into the Russian Empire,
    and those in eastern parts of the Commonwealth became
    confined by the tsars to the Pale of Settlement, i.e., they
    were not allowed to settle in major cities like Moscow
    and St. Petersburg. Why the Russians were trying to prevent
    the Jews from settling in major cities is, I suppose, related
    to why the Jews were, with minor exceptions, expelled from
    Western Europe. The Pale was rather porous, and was finally
    eliminated by the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917.

    Interestingly, Congress Poland (with the capital in Warsaw)
    was the richest and the most industrialized part of the
    Russian Empire, and the Jews tried to escape the Pale and
    move to Poland in the 19th century as fast as they could.

    So to summarize, the vast majority of the American Jews
    are descended from the Jews who lived for centuries in the
    Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (small numbers may be
    of Khazar origin). Kozinski is a common Polish name (from
    the word ‘koza’ which in Polish means goat) so his ancestors
    definitely lived in the Commonwealth.

    The German Jews included the Jews living in German speaking areas of the Austro-Hungarian Empire - not just Austria but provincial urban centers such as Prague where Kafka lived. An there were large #s of Yiddish speaking Jews in Galicia (briefly included in 1918-39 Poland), Romania, Hungary, etc. Many of these were indeed originally from Poland.

    The Khazar thing is a myth. Few if any modern Jews are descended from Khazars. Before DNA you could make up such imaginary "just so" stories (which are useful for various political reasons - if Jews are really Khazars they have no claim on the Holy Land and they are not a European race either) but the DNA evidence pretty much excludes such cock and bull versions of history.

    I'm kinda skeptical of this claim since many of the men going down are non-Jews. In fact, the Left stood by Bill Clinton (a non-Jew) even though one of his sexual conquests was Monica Lewinsky (Jewish).

    If it was about protecting daughters, one would expect that prominent Jews on the Left would have freaked out about Bill Clinton's liason with Monica Lewinsky and demanded his removal from office.

    Look, I know you really really want to believe that Jewish people are uniquely sick and depraved, but let me ask you this: If you put a bunch of Gentile Whites in positions of power in entertainment and journalism where they regularly had contact with lots of eager young women, don't you think that just maybe, some of them would leverage their position for sex or at least try?

Before DNA you could make up such imaginary "just so" stories (which are useful for various political reasons - if Jews are really Khazars they have no claim on the Holy Land and they are not a European race either) but the DNA evidence pretty much excludes such cock and bull versions of history.

    In American parlance (and given the limits of American understanding of European geography and history, the Jewish immigrants from the Pale and Congress Poland were all considered to be "Russian" - when they got off the boat at Ellis Island they carried Russian passports.

    Tell them that bankruptcy is nothing to be ashamed of. Even our pure Aryan President whose own father was a member of the KKK has experienced bankruptcy. As has been mentioned in this thread, one of the characteristics of successful men is that they take calculated risks. Sometimes these risks succeed bigly and other times they fail, but unless you try to grab life by the pussy you will never get to 2nd base let alone score.

    As Anon2 explains, the Jews ended up in the Russian empire by accident, when the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth fell apart and Russia bit off a big piece of it (not for the last time). It was an unhappy situation - the Russians had never wanted Jews in their country and suddenly they had millions on their hands. The Jews had been invited into the Commonwealth by their nobility for the same reason that Indians ran all the small businesses in Uganda and Chinese run all the small businesses in S.E. Asia. The local peasant farming population wasn't really interested in/good at commerce.

    Most high status men in America achieved their positions because they were aggressive in the sense of willing to take risks. A man who is willing to take risks is a lot more likely to flirt with or try to seduce a subordinate at work.

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It's why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other. They were like 'made men' in a system of power where law, media, politics, finance, and academia have largely been dominated by Jews.

    But the Weinstein scandal has a bursting-dam effect because (1) he's such a big name (2) even Jews gave the OK on taking him down.
    So, the word got out that it's Hunting Season on the Pervs.

    PS. With Jewish men, it's not just aggression. It's passive/aggressive dynamics that makes them both driven & hungry and self-pitying & mugging-for-sympathy.

    It's like Grodin in HEARTBREAK KID and Hoffman in THE GRADUATE.

    The wasp country club thing always had sexual connotations. White fathers were keeping Jewish boys out to keep them away from their shikse daughters.
    So, Jews played both victim and ultimate victor.

    So, even when Jews play aggressive, they act like they're being passively done wrong to.

    Say NO to me? Boo hoo hoo. Let's try that again. Pee Wee way

    I don’t know who you are Mr. Disclaimer but you are 100% right about the Jews. Especially this part…

  103. Steve: “guys with the most energy getting called out”

    Ceaseless activity of the body or the mind as the highest
    human ideal has definitely been rejected in Catholicism,
    Eastern Orthodoxy, and Buddhism. The Buddha would
    periodically withdraw from his disciples. Jesus would go
    into the hills to pray, apparently on a daily basis. Even
    Socrates is described by Plato as going into meditative
    trances, e.g., on the way to the Symposium. The highest
    ideal in those traditions is typically described as the alternation
    of activity and repose, for example, Ora et Labora. Just
    reading the Holy Scriptures, whether Christian or Buddhist,
    and prayer/meditation will probably take up two hours a day.
    Combined with periodic retreats this implies that
    you won’t become a billionaire or bed
    a thousand women or win the Pulitzer Prize but so what?

    Alternation of activity and repose will at least
    guarantee that you’ll avoid becoming a moral dwarf like Weinstein
    et al. As Dostoyevsky noted in Notes from Underground,
    thinking too much is a disease. Millions of people today
    who pray, meditate, go on mindfulness retreats, etc would agree.

    I think the period from about 1500 to 1965, with its
    dominant Protestant work ethic in the West, will be
    seen as an aberration in human history. The rat race
    was rejected by the Sixties counterculture, and this
    legacy of the Sixties is still very influential. “We are
    human beings, not human doings” was one of the ’60s
    slogans, and many today would agree

    Obama had impressive talking skills but his arguments were typically designed to bamboozle or gaslight whites below the 90th percentile in intellectual ability.

    Like all the vice industries, gambling, prostitution, porn, drugs are incredibly profitable. All but porn are very risky from competitors, customers and the law. Legal gambling requires a big investment and managing casinos with all the employees, customers and problems of running a resort. Prostitution is messy.

    But porn? It's easy compared to the rest of the vice businesses. Anyone with a camera can do it. Before cameras anyone with a pen could write a porn novel or even easier draw some pictures. In the old days porn salesmen often started out by going to bars with a stack of dirty pictures. It's very easy compared with managing a couple prostitutes the customers and competitors.

    A lot of 19th and early 20th century porn was naked lady pictures. Married couples did it for the money. She posed, he took the pictures and peddled them in a big town miles away.

    One of the greatest real estate fortunes in California is based on porn. They were German Jews They met in a concentration camp got married when WW2 ended and came to San Francisco. They had a little money from her family and started a small porn business. They made money and invested in high end residential real estate in San Francisco, Sea Cliff via presidio heights pacific heights cow hollow Russian and nob hill the marina to Lombard st.

    If you rent a $8,000 a month apartment in those areas it's probably owned by that family.

    They built entire shopping centers in San Diego. They are billionaires and it started 70 years ago with some still and movie cameras and a few male and female prostitutes.

    From the 1920s to “modern times”, and in many places all the way to today at “adult bookstores” and similar purveyors, organized crime controlled most or all of the porno business. If you were one guy selling 8mm reels or 32 page offset printed picture books in Wichita, you might stay under the radar of both the mob and the vice cops, but any bigger and they’d get you. This was a state felony and in most states there were always one or two guys in the slam for this. But the Mob was usually the bigger threat in Mob towns: they would kill you if you competed with them. They might “license” you by approving of it and your paying the guys up the chain and they might not.

    In those days a pretty young girl could make a month’s rent by posing for a dozen “nudie cutie” pictures and actual hardcore action could net her quite a bit more. Apparently contrary to popular opinion, very few nude models or still/movie “actresses” were actual hookers: generally prostitutes, then and now, will do a lot of things but not do it on camera.

    In the 70, the Supreme Court and courts generally put the kibosh on state and federal pornography legislation and the so called “Golden Age” erupted. Again, this industry was heavily mobbed up, as well as having a preponderance of Jewish talent and distribution at work. The Internet and “amateur” and “gonzo” eliminated this and made it possible to download an enormous amount of pornographic video for free. Much of this is shot in foreign countries and in some where there are few Jews, so I doubt strongly this can be called a “Jewish plot”.

    Usually, amateur video can be distinguished as to where it’s shot by the furniture, drapery, linens, background sounds such as a TV broadcast or radio, and things like electrical outlets.

    Tons of this stuff comes from places like Indonesia, India, and West Africa as well as Russia, and other Slavic speaking countries. Brazil seems to produce more than Hispanophone South America.

    Saudi Arabia, however, does not seem to produce this stuff.

    A Federal judge's chambers are not Hollywood and female law clerks are not sexy Hollywood actresses There is no evidence or even rumor that he so much as patted a clerk on the back, let alone that he was getting BJs from them or that he would have even wanted to given the looks and personality of most of them. Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters the same way he might talk about his interest in hurricanes or volcanoes or a thousand other things.

    If it is a Federal Judge, they better have a felony. Not someone feeling uncomfortable. I gotta say, maintaining your political position after a felony is a black thing. But still … it is a lifetime appointment.

    He’s accused of making a few female clerks feel uncomfortable. No allegations yet that he laid a hand on anyone.

    That there is the nut of the issue however. Females, as clerks or whatever, are trained from birth to feel uncomfortable and to find offense anymore. Stranger Danger. Rape Culture. ‘Harassment’. It allows them to exercise a new feminist privilege where they to pick and choose between who may look at them freely(Clooney-Easque men) and who makes them “uncomfortable” or “creeped out” (another one that keeps cropping up from women who creep ME out). Of course, if the guy that creeps her out holds an Oscar in his hands, it’s ok for HIM to creep her out for now, she can always re-visit the issue later in the press. Every woman at work now has a green light to ruin any man who looks at her. It’s UN-fucking-believable what’s going on. Imagine the poison in every business where the men and women have to mix.

    They’re trained and formally educated from birth in looking for discomfort, in finding offense. Most of liberals arts is just this and so how could any man not have one psycho in his life? That’s these, every single one of them..

    What’s odd is that they went into politics (and prospered in politics).
     
    Obama, unlike Nixon, has not prospered in politics. Nixon fought his way into the White House, Obama was the right guy at the right time. Nixon led a realignment of the Republican Party that has led to increasing GOP dominance of local governments and congress ever since. Obama did nothing as the Democratic Party decayed during the last decade into a group of ethnic factions fighting for dominance. Even in disgrace Nixon was still an influential statesman behind the scenes. Obama has vanished as if he were never there, it is no accident that Fox News has to use Hilary Clinton to keep the base riled up.

    Obama, unlike Nixon, has not prospered in politics.

    When you win the top job, you’ve prospered.

    Nixon fought his way into the White House, Obama was the right guy at the right time.

    Nixon was handed the Republican nomination on a silver platter 3x. The third time, he was the incumbent President, so that’s unremarkable. The 2d time, the Goldwater constituency did not run a candidate until Ronald Reagan put his name forward a day before the balloting at the convention. The liberal Republicans were tripping over their shoelaces the whole season (the most amusing episode of which was Nelson Rockefeller calling a press conference in April 1968 to announce he had nothing to announce). Rockefeller entered no primaries (though did manage a successful write-in candidacy in one state). The Vice Presidency did not, prior to 1960, confer any advantages in seeking election to the Presidency (except in those cases where the VP had succeeded to the office). Over a period of more than 150 years, only 3 VPs ever stood in a general election for the Presidency and only one did so as a major-party candidate. It’s all rather odd that every significant figure in the Republican Party stood aside in 1960 and let Nixon have it uncontested. (And that wasn’t Eisenhower’s doing; Eisenhower had at best a mixed opinion of Nixon).

    Nixon led a realignment of the Republican Party that has led to increasing GOP dominance of local governments and congress ever since.

    He did nothing of the kind. The rap on Nixon among Capitol Hill Republicans (Robert Dole and George Will to name two) was that the breakdown of Southern loyalty to the Democratic Party had given the Republicans a tremendous opportunity in 1972, but “we spent it all on the Presidential race” and “it was the Darwininan logic of Mr. Nixon’s advisers that those who needed the help of friends for survival deserved neither friends nor survival”. Retrospectively, you can see the advantage the Democrats had in federal politics dissipated around that time, but the social catastrophes of the era (e.g. 700 urban riots, a doubling of the homicide rate, and bloody cock-ups in Indochina) were sufficient to do that. Nixon’s scandals took a chunk out of the Republican Party, and by 1976 they held 1/3 of the seats in the federal legislature and controlled just 4 state legislatures. It wasn’t until 20 years after Nixon’s retirement that they reached parity in legislative contests.

    Obama did nothing as the Democratic Party decayed during the last decade into a group of ethnic factions fighting for dominance. Even in disgrace Nixon was still an influential statesman behind the scenes. Obama has vanished as if he were never there, it is no accident that Fox News has to use Hilary Clinton to keep the base riled up.

    Ted Cruz, while not an introvert as far as I know, is an example of a personality type that typically flounders in politics making it to very high office.

    Not sure what his ‘type’ is supposed to be. He’s quite driven. Given that he had a law partnership that was giving him a 7-digit income, his interest in holding public office in his working prime is eccentric. He managed to win the Republican U.S. Senate primary in 2012 by assiduous campaigning in small venues. People who know Cruz personally say he’s quite intense and effective one-on-one.

    The effectiveness of a politician cannot be judged solely by how much his enemies hate him. Beside the fact that it was verboten for all but KKK members (and even they were hooded) to hate on Obama publicly because that would make you a racis', Obama the man was likable in the way that Hillary (and Nixon) were not. Fox still can't use Obama to rile up the bases for both of these reasons. You can hide a lot of Leftism if you have a pleasant personality - this was FDR's secret as well. When Obama told you that you needed to "spread the wealth" he didn't seem like a hood who was implicitly threatening to steal your assets, it just seemed sorta friendly. OTOH, if Hillary was inviting you over to her house for dinner, you had to wonder if she meant that YOU were on the menu.

    Now it's true that Obama was all about himself - he doesn't seem to have any desire to create an Obama dynasty featuring Moochelle and the girls. This was more or less the norm in American politics until the Bushes and the Clintons and the Latin Americanization of America. Obama doesn't seem to have any Latins in his family (nor Jews unless you count his wife's cousin, the black "rabbi"). Obama knows that even if he spends the rest of his life golfing (which seems to be his plan) his place in American history as America's First Black President (he beat women and the Jews and the Latinos and every other group except WASP men and 1 Irish Catholic into the White House) is secure.

    This was more or less the norm in American politics until the Bushes and the Clintons and the Latin Americanization of America.

    Just looking at the federal marquee, you see three generations of Adamses, two Harrisons, four Tafts, and some in-law sets (e.g. Roosevelt to Roosevelt, Wilson to McAdoo, Eisenhower and Nixon). Did I mention the Kennedys?

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It’s why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.
     
    I actually like your example from fiction. Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil "the Turk" Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey. And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael's life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business. It's just fiction but it illustrates my point. For the most part, successful men take risks. Sometimes the risk is just social embarrassment. Sometimes it's more serious. From the outside, it can be difficult to tell exactly how a high status person achieved their status.

    I think the above poster had more likely in mind a comparison of the brothers as Dons. Sonny took over at what was up to then the height of their power, and he left them in a worse position, requiring his father the broker peace on worse terms than when they were originally offered when the Turk showed up.

    Michael, on the other hand, rose from head of a declining Corleone crime family to the undisputed King of Mafialand. He did so by playing possum, setting up an empire in Vegas, then suddenly killing all his enemies at once. Even though his father figured out it was “Brazini all along” before he died, and they knew in-law Carlo set up Sonny from the get-go. Because delayed gratification.

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor, shooting the Turk and the Chief, and so on. But if he had done those things and not also been the son of the Don, he probably wouldn’t have gotten anywhere. He’d just be a button man. Though a button man wouldn’t have been in a position to carry out that hit.

    You can’t view him like a self-made man, because he was a prince. A prince that was destined for the military or the clergy, let’s say, but then put himself in the running for the crown after tragedy struck his father and brother. Different

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor

    I don't think that was rash. It was a matter of honor, something that many American men did.
    Even though Vito tried to get a deferment for Michael, he also raised Michael differently from Sonny and Fredo. Michael was raised to be legit, a good upright American, and etc.
    So, my guess is Vito was worried about Michael going to war but also privately impressed that Michael had indeed grown up to be a Good American. Unlike the Family, Michael did primarily identify with the nation. So, when Japan attacked, Michael didn't see it as 'strangers' getting attacked but his fellow countrymen. Granted, paradoxically Vito raised Michael to grow away from the family to bring honor to the family. If a Corleone became a good American and succeeded legitimately, the family name would be redeemed. After all, the Corleones got money but not the respect. They are seen as a crime clan. But if Michael becomes, say, senator Corleone, it means the family truly arrived in America. It's like the Kennedies were involved in organized crime but got respect by raising sons to be politicians.

    But after the war and with the hit on his father, Michael comes to realize that America, upon closer inspection, is also divided into clans, tribes, and organizations. And if Michael's identification with America was abstract and ideological, his identification with his family is of blood(and soil when he makes aliyah to Sicily).

    Maybe like all Muslims try to visit Mecca and many Jews visit Israel, all white gentile groups in America should have a ritual of returning to their ancestral homelands. Michael's return to Sicily as an adult really changed him.

    Tell them that bankruptcy is nothing to be ashamed of. Even our pure Aryan President whose own father was a member of the KKK has experienced bankruptcy. As has been mentioned in this thread, one of the characteristics of successful men is that they take calculated risks.

    In the Paul Simon bio HOMEWARD BOUND, it says Simon and Artie at the age of 13 went to Brill building with their own song. They were rejected but they had balls.

    An interesting passage from the book:

    Education has been a central pillar of American Jewish Culture since 1889, when the primarily upscale German Jews whose parents arrived in the mid 19th century created the Educational Alliance, a privately funded group dedicated to teaching both English and the fundamentals of American society and social etiquette to the waves of unschooled Jewish workers and farmers washing in from eastern Europe. It was an exercise in organized altruism -- one freighted with condescension. If you'd picked up a copy of the Jewish Messenger from that period, you'd have read pro-Educational Alliance editorials that dismissed the unsophisticated new arrivals as "slovenly in dress, loud in manners, and vulgar in discourse." Louis(Paul's father) never achieved that level of smugness, certainly not in public, but he made a point of telling his son, repeatedly, that the highest calling in life was to teach others the things you'd learned for yourself... Paul was dutiful enough to listen to his dad, but he had no intention of heeding him.

    Unfortunately that this level of self-knowledge and awareness is rare indeed among the Chosen. It is probably most strong in those of mixed racial lineage and among those whose understanding of why their expulsion from or flight from their former homes was necessary is most fresh.

    History has shown this self awareness is has been repeatedly lost on future generations.

    As Anon2 explains, the Jews ended up in the Russian empire by accident, when the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth fell apart and Russia bit off a big piece of it (not for the last time). It was an unhappy situation - the Russians had never wanted Jews in their country and suddenly they had millions on their hands. The Jews had been invited into the Commonwealth by their nobility for the same reason that Indians ran all the small businesses in Uganda and Chinese run all the small businesses in S.E. Asia. The local peasant farming population wasn't really interested in/good at commerce.

    You miss the point which was that these people emigrated west.

    Is Jewish culture that loopy or is Jack D just blowing bubbles?

    This is an example of why Jews didn’t get invited into country clubs. They didn’t have respectable WASP manners and didn’t know how to behave in polite society. Many Russian Jews had a crude peasant background and manners and clung to them like glue.

    5 Feb 1990 NewYorkTimes sez Barry Sotero was elected “president” of the review.

    The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago's South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.
     
    Barry was, as usual, humble:

    ''The fact that I've been elected shows a lot of progress,'' Mr. Obama (sic) said today in an interview. ''It's encouraging. But it's important that stories like mine aren't used to say that everything is O.K. for blacks. You have to remember that for every one of me, there are hundreds or thousands of black students with at least equal talent who don't get a chance,'' he said, alluding to poverty or growing up in a drug environment.
     

    “At least equal talent”. Yep, that’s probably true.

As has been mentioned in this thread, one of the characteristics of successful men is that they take calculated risks. Sometimes these risks succeed bigly and other times they fail, but unless you try to grab life by the pussy you will never get to 2nd base let alone score.

    His father was arrested for disorderly conduct at the site of a KKK event in 1927, charges which were later dropped. I don’t think anyone’s demonstrated he was a KKK member.

    Yes, who ever heard of a German becoming a Fascist? Unglaublich!

    In 1927 as in 2017, "Fascist" and "Klansman" were overlapping categories. Although in 1927 it was a lot more respectable to be either one than it is in 2017. Hitler really damaged the Fascist brand bigtime.

    This was more or less the norm in American politics until the Bushes and the Clintons and the Latin Americanization of America.

    Just looking at the federal marquee, you see three generations of Adamses, two Harrisons, four Tafts, and some in-law sets (e.g. Roosevelt to Roosevelt, Wilson to McAdoo, Eisenhower and Nixon). Did I mention the Kennedys?

    People who know Cruz personally say he’s quite intense and effective one-on-one.

    He’s also pretty effective in party politics. His second place finish in 2016 during his first try at the White House, against Trump’s candidacy, and 14 other contenders, is nothing to sniff at. If his name were spelled Cruise instead of Cruz, it’s possible that he could have beaten Trump.

    Actually, some female law school grads are pretty attractive. They are, after all, young-ish women in most cases in their early to mid 20s, and in their socioeconomic class they are unlikely to be obese.

    Judge Kozinski is actually known for hiring attractive female law clerks. Most of them are very bright as well. And he has a reputation for skating the edge of appropriate with his comments. He works very well with aggressive women who will push back. Like if the one who felt uncomfortable had called him a pervert or dirty old man, he would actually have taken that in stride. Thing is, he's so aggressive himself that he can't imagine somebody just freezing up.

    I'll be curious to see if there are other complaints forthcoming. Some women might have experienced something similar and not care to come forward themselves, for a variety of reasons.

    Kozinski also has a reputation for being brilliant and extremely demanding with his clerks, who are expected to work very long hours. He is also a big string-puller on behalf of his clerks, and he used to be a huge "feeder judge" for Supreme Court clerkships. Less so since O'Connor left the Court.

    Federal judicial law clerks (not “interns”), male or female, are pretty much never in their early 20s. Almost never younger than 25, and typically aged 26 to 30. Still young enough to be near peak of their attractiveness for this purpose, of course.

    The effectiveness of a politician cannot be judged solely by how much his enemies hate him. Beside the fact that it was verboten for all but KKK members (and even they were hooded) to hate on Obama publicly because that would make you a racis', Obama the man was likable in the way that Hillary (and Nixon) were not. Fox still can't use Obama to rile up the bases for both of these reasons. You can hide a lot of Leftism if you have a pleasant personality - this was FDR's secret as well. When Obama told you that you needed to "spread the wealth" he didn't seem like a hood who was implicitly threatening to steal your assets, it just seemed sorta friendly. OTOH, if Hillary was inviting you over to her house for dinner, you had to wonder if she meant that YOU were on the menu.

    Now it's true that Obama was all about himself - he doesn't seem to have any desire to create an Obama dynasty featuring Moochelle and the girls. This was more or less the norm in American politics until the Bushes and the Clintons and the Latin Americanization of America. Obama doesn't seem to have any Latins in his family (nor Jews unless you count his wife's cousin, the black "rabbi"). Obama knows that even if he spends the rest of his life golfing (which seems to be his plan) his place in American history as America's First Black President (he beat women and the Jews and the Latinos and every other group except WASP men and 1 Irish Catholic into the White House) is secure.

    ” Obama knows that even if he spends the rest of his life golfing (which seems to be his plan) his place in American history as America’s First Black President (he beat women and the Jews and the Latinos and every other group except WASP men and 1 Irish Catholic into the White House) is secure.”

    Not so fast. Obama has a White half. (and I never liked it either)

    Substitute Bisexual, Homosexual, Muslim, Atheist or Ineligible for “Black” and your odds for truthin’ improve considerably.

    I think the above poster had more likely in mind a comparison of the brothers as Dons. Sonny took over at what was up to then the height of their power, and he left them in a worse position, requiring his father the broker peace on worse terms than when they were originally offered when the Turk showed up.

    Michael, on the other hand, rose from head of a declining Corleone crime family to the undisputed King of Mafialand. He did so by playing possum, setting up an empire in Vegas, then suddenly killing all his enemies at once. Even though his father figured out it was "Brazini all along" before he died, and they knew in-law Carlo set up Sonny from the get-go. Because delayed gratification.

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor, shooting the Turk and the Chief, and so on. But if he had done those things and not also been the son of the Don, he probably wouldn't have gotten anywhere. He'd just be a button man. Though a button man wouldn't have been in a position to carry out that hit.

    You can't view him like a self-made man, because he was a prince. A prince that was destined for the military or the clergy, let's say, but then put himself in the running for the crown after tragedy struck his father and brother. Different

    Coppola once noted that he saw Vito’s three sons as each embodying different aspects of their father: Sonny= the rage and capacity for anger, Michael= the brains, Fredo= the heart and sensitivity.

  140. “How much of this is just the guys with the most energy getting called out? I’ve never seen anybody try to quantify interpersonal “energy,” but it sure seems to be something of a common denominator among the perps in Weinsteingate. Most of these guys getting named are horny bastards mostly because they are Not Shy and Not Exhausted from Emotional Labor.”

    Sociologist Randall Collins may have made some inroads here with his work on “Interaction Ritual Chains.” Collins refers to something he calls “Emotional Energy,” which arises from successful interactions with other people. His book on Napoleon (“Napoleon Never Slept”) is an examination of Emotional Energy in the life of one remarkable person, explaining why Napoleon rarely slept and was at his most successful when he could interact with others and by contrast declined rapidly, both physically and emotionally, when isolated.

    Although Collins does not lay out specific ways in which Emotional Energy could be counted, he makes a good case that it *could* be a real and measurable variable in human interactions.

    The application to these cases of sexual misconduct is interesting in the light of Collins’ theory. Sexual relations involve “interaction rituals” much like other human interactions, so there is every reason to believe that people with high success in non-sexual relations will now have a fund of energy which they would like to direct toward successful sexual interactions. But success in one form of interaction (say, out-competing other Hollywood producers) does not guarantee success in another (say, talking a young starlet into bed). In fact, there is reason to believe that success in a competitive endeavor, where one is trying to raise one’s own level of Emotional Energy by beating others, is not the same as success in the sexual marketplace, where some form of “win-win” outcome is preferable.

    In short, by succeeding and achieving high levels of EE at the expense of others, people like Harvey Weinstein might then choose to “spend” their EE trying to win in other arenas.

    Was Kozinski showing these women porn on his own private laptop or his work computer? Apart from the alleged harrassment - inviting women to look at the porn stash on your computer - is this guy unaware that even just having porn on your computer can be a firing offense. There are probably hundreds of federal employees fired every year for having porn on their work computer. How they can be so reckless is beyond me. You'd think by now they would know - especially a federal judge and a guy who is obviously pretty smart.

    Is this discussion really proceeding in ignorance of the fact that a disciplinary committee chaired by Chief Justice Rehnquist censured Kozinski for having porn on his work computer? ‘He should watch his porn at home,’ or to that effect.

    Another somewhat relevant fact that seems to have been missed here: Kozinski’s accuser is today a writer of romance novels. (That is, she is well-imbued with sexual hysterics.)

    [A judge this crazy must have done worse to his clerks - and to the parties to the cases before him - than show a clerk porno. An essentially harmless act, but given American puritanism, a pathological lack of basic judgment. What I see as worst about the present puritan witch hunt is that it elevates a minor aspect of power disparities in the workplace. Kozinski's having told his clerks that they're his slaves (and acting that way) is to me a far worse offense than sharing porn.]

    female law clerks are not sexy Hollywood actresses
     
    No, but plenty of them are very much f*ckable. Note that many of his law clerks have said that he did absolutely nothing out of line.

    There is no evidence or even rumor that he so much as patted a clerk on the back, let alone that he was getting BJs from them
     
    I agree, but to me, inviting a girl to your office and asking her opinion about a pornographic image is a way of testing the waters.

    Besides, Kozinsky used to be pretty handsome. 10 or 20 years ago, there would surely have been female subordinates who were sexually interested in him due to his looks and social status.

    Kozinski is someone with a wide ranging, curious mind and he made the mistake of thinking that he could treat women as intellectual equals and talk to them dispassionately about sexual matters
     
    Perhaps, but seeing that aggressive kiss makes me think that in general there is a lot more on his mind than just intellectual discourse. Besides, he allegedly suggested to one girl that she exercise naked. Assuming that this happened, it's difficult to see it as mere intellectual discussion. Instead, this seems like classic flirting to me. It's a somewhat sexual comment that both people can just dismiss as a joke, but it also gives the girl an opening to escalate.

    The judge’s surname is “Kozinski”, not “Kozinsky”. “Kozinski” is Polish; “Kozinsky” is (((Polish))).

    The problem with Jewish abuses is there has been a New Boys Network that, wink wink, has been covering up for each other.
     
    I'm kinda skeptical of this claim since many of the men going down are non-Jews. In fact, the Left stood by Bill Clinton (a non-Jew) even though one of his sexual conquests was Monica Lewinsky (Jewish).

    If it was about protecting daughters, one would expect that prominent Jews on the Left would have freaked out about Bill Clinton's liason with Monica Lewinsky and demanded his removal from office.

    Look, I know you really really want to believe that Jewish people are uniquely sick and depraved, but let me ask you this: If you put a bunch of Gentile Whites in positions of power in entertainment and journalism where they regularly had contact with lots of eager young women, don't you think that just maybe, some of them would leverage their position for sex or at least try?

    Look, I know you really really want to believe that Jewish people are uniquely sick and depraved

    No, I don’t.
    Depravity is world-wide.
    Look how Mexicans treat Mexicans. So terribly that so many Mexers wanna come here.
    Look at the sicko nation of Japan where 1/200 women are in porn industry.
    Look at demented North Korea and how it treats its people.
    Look at Chinese treatment of dogs and cats.
    Look at India with bottomless corruption and filth. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE was so pukey I turned it off.
    Look at Muslims and their gross cousin marriages and barbarism.
    As for blacks and Africa, where does one start?

    The problem with Jews is threefold.

    1. Whereas Mexers mainly abuse Mexers and Japanese mainly exploit Japanese, Jews have power over masses of gentiles who are increasingly insulted and degraded. “Who, Whom” matters. It’s like black rulers treated black Africans worse than white Afrikaners did, but blacks complained about South Africa cuz it was about whites oppressing blacks. So, gentiles will notice more when the Other is doing them wrong.

    2. Jews have great power. While various groups in America have some power and resort to criminality and bad behavior, Jewish abuses affect more people because of much greater power. Crooked Jews in Wall street or rabid Zionists in State Department will do far more damage than Gypsy thieves or Polish chop-shoppers. Power amplifies the problem. If Jews had little power but acted 1000x worse, it wouldn’t matter because their power would be inconsequential. Look at American Indians. They are pretty depraved, addicted to alcohol and watching too much TV. But, their depravity has no impact outside their reservations since they have no power.

    3. Cult of Eternal Victimhood protects Jews from scrutiny and criticism, which makes the behavior even worse and more hypocritical as Jewish self-image(as wise holy victims and survivors) becomes increasingly at odds with Jewish misbehavior.
    Maybe the Weinstein thing is a beginning of a cleanup, what David Brooks has been advising in his columns. But Jews walk a tightrope on this because Paranoy’s Complaint. Even as the Power wants to clamp down on Portnoys-gone-wild, there is the lingering paranoia that airing dirty laundry will give ammo to the Enemites.

Guys who use a one-size-fits-all approach succeed with their combo of status/looks/charm or sheer volume, and Middle American corn-fed types are as likely to use it as thick-skinned Jew’s.

    His father was arrested for disorderly conduct at the site of a KKK event in 1927, charges which were later dropped. I don’t think anyone’s demonstrated he was a KKK member.
     
    German-Americans have traditionally been abolitionists, and I suspect the KKK was principally a Scots-Irish phenomenon. I'm inclined to think that if he was involved at all with the event, he got into an altercation with the KKK members at the rally.

    Yes, who ever heard of a German becoming a Fascist? Unglaublich!

    In 1927 as in 2017, “Fascist” and “Klansman” were overlapping categories. Although in 1927 it was a lot more respectable to be either one than it is in 2017. Hitler really damaged the Fascist brand bigtime.

    There is a certain historical logic to all these Jewish guys being accused of improprieties with their puds.

    Give Jews credit for their boldness. Their Covenant is premised on a special connection between the Master of the Universe and their puds. Abraham was the greatest pudkin that ever lived. He gazed up at the sky, looked at his pud, gazed up at the sky, looked at his pud, gazed up at the sky, looked at his pud, and came to the astounding conclusion that the the Master and Ruler of the Universe made a Covenant with his pud. I mean that is some chutzpah. “God blessed my rod.” It’s why Jews are so fixated on puds and phallic symbols. The whole Schwarz thing with Mel Brooks in SPACEBALLS.
    From Moses and his staff to Freud and his cigar.

    When Jews believed in God or kept with the tradition, their puds were restrained by the Covenant. God gave them pud-power to do good and be responsible and be good husbands and fathers. But once Jews underwent the Second Emancipation — liberation from their own obligations and inhibitions –, their puds ran free and wild. It went Portnoic.

    On a subconscious level, I think Jews sense this. The whole thing about Weinstein cumming into a pot of plant. It’s like mini-Garden-of-Eden syndrome all over again. It’s like Jews want to rewrite the Genesis where the Serpent is the good guy.

    The Jewish Schwarz went from being a dutiful staff to a out-of-control serpent.

    If that turns out to be Darren Aronofsky's next movie, with Jennifer Lawrence as Eve, you should get a Story By Anon credit.

    It should be Meryl Streep than Jennifer Lawrence. After all, it was Streep who referred to Harvey as 'god'.

    And the great flood happens when Harvey makes the whole world watch him take a mega-shower.

    Women attorneys are like all other women. They run from unattractive to beautiful. The young ones are obviously prettier than the middle aged.
     
    Ummm, how does this contradict anything I have said?

    People should comment about what they know.
     
    Sure, and people should read comments before responding to them.

    “I agree, but to me, inviting a girl to your office and asking her opinion about a pornographic image is a way of testing the waters.”

    That’s also a sure fire way to have HR breathing down your neck. So, sport, what is your rate of success when you throw down that opening line?

    But many also rose to the top by being cautious and self-controlled. Delayed gratification and restraint. It’s why Michael Corleone went further than Sonny the impulsive.
     
    I actually like your example from fiction. Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil "the Turk" Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey. And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael's life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business. It's just fiction but it illustrates my point. For the most part, successful men take risks. Sometimes the risk is just social embarrassment. Sometimes it's more serious. From the outside, it can be difficult to tell exactly how a high status person achieved their status.

    Michael Corleone took significant risk by personally executing Virgil “the Turk” Solazzo and Captain Mark McCluskey.

    But it was not a rash decision. Michael figures the Corleones can weather the storm because they got some media guys on the payroll that can shift the narrative. Also, Corleones also got insiders in the police department to leak the whereabouts of the meeting place. And they got contacts in Sicily who can protect Michael for awhile and it’s also a chance for Michael to do an aliyah.

    So, it was a planned venture than just crazy decision. Corleones are in a business where you cannot survive unless one is willing to take great risks once awhile. The question is how well planned it is.

    And in fact the murders resulted in an attempt on Michael’s life which easily could have succeeded. A risk-averse person would have stayed the heck out of family business.

    That depends on identification. If Michael identifies only as an American Individual, what you say would be correct. But he comes to identify strongly with his family. His father getting shot and then being targeted a the hospital was his ‘covenant’ moment with the family. His soul imprinted with the family.
    It’s a strange moment because Vito is both happy and worried about this. He raised Michael to be different, to stay out of the family business and become a good legit American. And yet, he must also be grateful because Michael feels blood is stronger than ink.

    I think the above poster had more likely in mind a comparison of the brothers as Dons. Sonny took over at what was up to then the height of their power, and he left them in a worse position, requiring his father the broker peace on worse terms than when they were originally offered when the Turk showed up.

    Michael, on the other hand, rose from head of a declining Corleone crime family to the undisputed King of Mafialand. He did so by playing possum, setting up an empire in Vegas, then suddenly killing all his enemies at once. Even though his father figured out it was "Brazini all along" before he died, and they knew in-law Carlo set up Sonny from the get-go. Because delayed gratification.

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor, shooting the Turk and the Chief, and so on. But if he had done those things and not also been the son of the Don, he probably wouldn't have gotten anywhere. He'd just be a button man. Though a button man wouldn't have been in a position to carry out that hit.

    You can't view him like a self-made man, because he was a prince. A prince that was destined for the military or the clergy, let's say, but then put himself in the running for the crown after tragedy struck his father and brother. Different

    Of course, this was preceded by rash acts like joining the army after Pearl Harbor

    I don’t think that was rash. It was a matter of honor, something that many American men did.
    Even though Vito tried to get a deferment for Michael, he also raised Michael differently from Sonny and Fredo. Michael was raised to be legit, a good upright American, and etc.
    So, my guess is Vito was worried about Michael going to war but also privately impressed that Michael had indeed grown up to be a Good American. Unlike the Family, Michael did primarily identify with the nation. So, when Japan attacked, Michael didn’t see it as ‘strangers’ getting attacked but his fellow countrymen. Granted, paradoxically Vito raised Michael to grow away from the family to bring honor to the family. If a Corleone became a good American and succeeded legitimately, the family name would be redeemed. After all, the Corleones got money but not the respect. They are seen as a crime clan. But if Michael becomes, say, senator Corleone, it means the family truly arrived in America. It’s like the Kennedies were involved in organized crime but got respect by raising sons to be politicians.

    But after the war and with the hit on his father, Michael comes to realize that America, upon closer inspection, is also divided into clans, tribes, and organizations. And if Michael’s identification with America was abstract and ideological, his identification with his family is of blood(and soil when he makes aliyah to Sicily).

    Maybe like all Muslims try to visit Mecca and many Jews visit Israel, all white gentile groups in America should have a ritual of returning to their ancestral homelands. Michael’s return to Sicily as an adult really changed him.
