Screenshot 2015-11-25 14.43.02

Ever since the Paris Massacres, the establishment has mounted a campaign to convince Americans who follow the news that our memories of terrorist incidents are all wrong. One ploy is to emphasize a technical distinction between refugee and asylee. But the funnier one is their assurance that: “You don’t have to worry about this new generation of Muslims; if history is any guide, it’s their sons who will be much more likely to try to kill us!”

Evidently, the Magic of Assimilation doesn’t work as well as has been promised in other contexts …

Instead of looking at this graphic skeptically, we are suppose to swell up with patriotic pride that Joker Tsarnaev deigned to become a naturalized citizen. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Screenshot 2015-11-25 15.11.37 By the way, I see that Tamerlan Tsarnaev (lower right corner) had a Green Card to permit him to get a job in the U.S. But did he ever have a job? Aspiring MMA fighter, weed dealer, and sponger off your American wife’s affluent family aren’t official jobs, are they?

One root of this mental blindness is that the establishment sees the Terrorism Issue and the Immigration Issue as wholly separate categories.

If there’s a terrorism incident, you should, of course, Invade the World; how could terrorism raise questions about Invite the World? What do Invade the World and Invite the World have to do with each other?

But voters are starting to grasp the connection. Thus the latest Reuters poll has Trump in first at 38.0% followed by the cunning Cruz, who has positioned himself to not get into much conflict with Trump over immigration, in second at 11.6%.

    Thanks for drawing more attention to this; it caused a mental facepalm upon reading. We should let more immigrants in… because their children will give us the next generation of home-grown terrorists?

    Anyway, I’m too distraught to even talk about this, because I just found out that Olga Kurylenko’s new movie Momentum only made $69 US in its opening weekend. I’m hoping that maybe the 41 euro take was rounded down.

    Yes, that Olga Kurylenko, from the first Hitman movie. I can’t talk now.

    I really liked her in Magic City. She seemed like perfect wifey material, which suits her better than the action gurrrl role here or the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold role in Hitman. And Elena Satine for a mistress, a man can dream. It's interesting how Olga could pass for Cuban in the show. She actually looked exotic, even though both her and Satine are Soviet imports.
    , @Ttjy
    I read a bio of Olga and it says she is a "French" actress. She moved to France at 16 from the Ukraine so I guess that counts as French these days. If black people and Algerians can be French I guess she can.

    Is Nicole Kidman an American actress?


    Roy Keane said if Ahsley Young is a Man United player then he is a Chinaman. You mean Roy can't be a Chinaman? People agree that he is not a Chinaman,but that Ashley Young is English.

    Just watched the trailer and she is very pretty. But, I lost my ability to suspend disbelief when he said 'clever girl.' I find it difficult to be drawn into movies relying on the female lead executing some grand complicated plan of her own devising. Doesn't fit my 'lived reality' as the Lefties like to say.

  4. The second generation being the one to watch out for is a common theme, and not just with Muslims.

    This is particularly true of them because most Muslim groups that want to come here don’t look like us and they generally have lower IQs, meaning they don’t fit in very well. Chinese don’t look like us but they are high IQ and have family demanding they succeed in economic terms. It’s a disastrous combination.

  5. The MSM and political elites are obviously terrified at the thought they might accidentally raise public consciousness of this and related issues. They are concerned to the degree that their evasions become ever more comically obvious. Today alone, I heard and read “analyses” of Trump’s stunning poll numbers on NPR, the WaPO, and that worthless rag that still dares to call itself a conservative magazine. All managed to carefully elide mentioning Trump’s positions on strengthening border security, restoring integrity to immigration and naturalization policy, and effectively dealing with ISIS, Al Q’aida and other dangerous Islamic organizations. Most amusing is that Trump’s poll numbers show that the MSM and the elites have already lost this battle for hearts and minds even if they still have the money and clout to corrupt elections.

    Often the original immigrants from Muslim countries were glad to get out of the hell-holes they came from, so it took a generation or so for racial and religious loyalty to resurface in the form of violence against the host country. Add to this the fact that they had less time for plotting terrorism because they had to work harder than the present generation of immigrants, there being fewer welfare benefits back then.

    More likely it's the demonstrated population genetics phenomenon of regression to the population mean.

    The Muslims who come here who ARE of the "higher IQ/g" sort will in the second and subsequent generations experience regression to the group mean. As all populations do.

    The extremest dolts and bozos may in fact see their kids' IQ/g go up a few points, but it has nothing to do with presence in America per se, PC assertions to the contrary.

    The higher IQ/g will see their kids' IQ/g go down, since the mean for Muslim populations is astonishingly low globally, particularly in African nations.

    The "home grown terrorist" thing may be helped along by radicalization outreach, but we shouldn't overlook the population genetics component. (Regression to the Mean means more than Magic Dirt...or 19th and 20th century American mythologies about Hard Working Immigrants.)

    But the SJWs always have plenty of grease for their victimization propaganda mills, and associated social work careers, assuring us of things like that it was racism that made the second generation terrorists, or lack of opportunity, or lack of sports clubs, or halal food, or microaggression, or whatever.

    Fact sheet on refugees provided to the US House of Representatives briefing November 12, 2015
    Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 25, 2015

    ~The Refugee Act of 1980 created the Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) presently being administered to resettle approximately 70,000 refugees each year (in recent years) to the US.

    ~The Obama Administration increased the projected ceiling to 85,000 for FY2016. 10,000 of those slots are earmarked for Syrian refugees presently being referred to the US by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) which says it has selected 20,000 for consideration so far.

    ~When the President sends his “Determination” to Congress in advance of the fiscal year (two weeks in advance is required!) it is accompanied by a report (Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016). There is supposed to be a legally required consultation with Congress.

    ~There will be large increases this year from Africa including (but not limited to) DR Congo, Eritrea and Sudan. The largest number of refugees arriving in recent years are from: Burma (Myanmar), Bhutan/Nepal, Iraq, and Somalia. We admitted 120,000 Iraqis since 2007.

    ~In FY2015, we admitted 1,682 Syrian refugees, less than 40 were Christians/other minorities.

    ~In 2014, the United States took in 67% of the refugees resettled around the world. The next closest country was Canada with 9.9%.

    ~The UNHCR refers most of our refugees. The Department of Homeland Security is charged with doing the security screening. The Dept. of State (Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration) works with nine major refugee contractors who along with the State Dept. determine their placement in America. The Dept. of Health and Human Services (Office of Refugee Resettlement) provides grants and additional federal funding mostly through those nine non-profit agencies.

    ~The anticipated cost to the US Treasury of the resettlement process (not including welfare/Medicaid/education costs) is projected to be just short of $1.2 billion for FY2016.

    ~The nine non-profit ($$$$$$) agencies contracted to resettle refugees include: US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, World Relief (Evangelicals), Church World Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, Ethiopian Community Development Council, and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.

    ~There are 312 subcontractors ($$$$$$) working under the nine major contractors in 185 locations around the country. There are 24 offices located around the country for the processing of Unaccompanied Alien Children. A placement site map is available on line (attached).

    ~The states receiving the highest number of refugees in FY2015 were in descending order: TX, CA, NY, PA, FL, GA, MI, AZ, WA, and NC.

    ~States receiving no refugees in 2014 or 2015 were: WY, MT. Delaware received none in 2014.

    ~State and local elected officials have virtually no say in the resettlement process. This is especially so in the so-called Wilson-Fish states where the state doesn’t even have a refugee office under state government and the program is completely run through the US State Department and a non-profit organization. Those states are: AL, AL, CO, ID, KY, LA, MA, NV, ND, SD, TN, VT and San Diego County.

    ~Refugees are a special class of legal immigrant which permits them to receive virtually all forms of welfare upon arrival.

    ~Grassroots opposition is growing throughout the US to the resettlement process mostly due to the lack of transparency and the fear of Islamic radicals who might get in through the program.

    Some points regarding the proposed Syrian resettlement and the European migration crisis:

    ~Only about 50% of the migrants flooding Europe today are Syrians. The next highest number are from Afghanistan.

    ~These are a mix of asylum seekers and economic migrants. Asylum seekers must prove that just as refugees, they fear returning to their homelands for fear of persecution (escaping war per se has never been a part of the refugee definition).

    ~We are not expected to get refugees from the European flow (Malta exception). Ours will come through UN referrals from mostly UNHCR camps and regional offices.

    ~The refugee resettlement contractors (NGOs mentioned above) working with the US State Department began advocating several years ago for the resettlement of 15,000 Syrians per year for each of the next 5 years. They then modified their request to 65,000 Syrians before Pres. Obama leaves office. Subsequently they have demanded 100,000 Syrians before 2017.

    ~Earlier 14 US Senators wrote to the President asking for 65,000 Syrians. A total of 84 Senators and Members of Congress have subsequently urged the President to speed up security screening.

    ~FBI Director James Comey has told Congress that Syrians cannot be thoroughly screened because the Administration has no access to data (biographic or biometric) on most of them.

    You're right, but Ron Unz has made up his mind.

    As I have pointed out in prior posts, "hispanics" are categorized as white or black in most (if not the majority of) federal, state and local crime statistics.

    To very quickly see evidence of this, go to the Federal Bureau of Prison's site www.bop.gov. Select Inmates and then Find an Inmate.
    1) In the Race drop down menu, there are four choices: American Indian, Asian, Black, White. No Hispanic.
    2) Type a Spanish surname such as Garcia, Rodriguez, Lopez, etc. The vast majority are White, and a few are Black. Again, no Hispanic.

    > They were angry because they were losers and knew it.

    I don't think this point can be stressed too strongly, even though this words it rather crudely (no problem with that, myself).

    The Magic Dirt proponents really do not comprehend how vast are the differences between different assortments of genetics--the population flows called "races."

    There are a lot of people playing on covetousness and resentment, as well, who want to believe that people, like jobs, are entirely fungible.

    I remember a very skilled automobile mechanic of my acquaintance in the Philadelphia area when I was in grad school. I always did most of my mechanicking, except for the stuff that required a lift.

    He had been a "physician" in Armenia, thus his parents had emigrated well after Medz Yeghern. His family thought it would be easy for him, as a young doctor, the cream of his social set, to come to the US, requalify for his credentials, and get licensed...then start raking in massive money as an American doctor.

    They were all extremely surprised when he went to take the MCAT and scored in something like the lowest 10%. Some agency or service or something was certain that the problem was linguistic, so they assigned him translation services. But his English was in fact quite good. His family had spoken both Armenian and English at home...in Armenia.

    He and I talked about this over lunch in his garage one day, sitting on buckets. He said frankly that the problem wasn't the test. "My family and I had no idea how far advanced the science is in the US and how much doctors here have to know. I'm simply not that smart. I had to face either going back to Armenia, or living here and finding another way to make a living. I was also very good at mechanical things, so I took a trade school program. Now I fix the cars of people much smarter than I'll ever be."

    There was a sense of disappointment...but no resentment. And a great sense of flexibility, and value for living in the US. In his view it would take another two or three generations of marrying well and working hard for his offspring to raise their intelligence sufficiently to become doctors. I think one of his four kids went on to become a practical nurse. He, his wife's, and his entire family's eye was on a much larger future time horizon.

    I always found him to be very intelligent--surely more so than most of the Affirmative Action blacks I've met since then in the professional schools. But he was right. His higher-order thinking was limited. But he was technically very gifted, one of the three best car mechanics I ever met...and one of the other two was an Armenian as well, in Glens Falls, NY.

    Yes, that Olga Kurylenko, from the first Hitman movie. I can't talk now.

    I really liked her in Magic City. She seemed like perfect wifey material, which suits her better than the action gurrrl role here or the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold role in Hitman. And Elena Satine for a mistress, a man can dream. It’s interesting how Olga could pass for Cuban in the show. She actually looked exotic, even though both her and Satine are Soviet imports.

    Kurylenko also played some sort of Bolivian intelligence agent in the Bond movie "Quantum of Solace", though her character may have been described as half-Russian, I am not sure now. Her skin tone seems enough to suggest Generic Latin American as required.

    I wondered whatever happened to Elena Satine after she appeared once on one of those FBI-themed shows, one about missing persons, a few years ago. Wow.

    The Tsarnaev's weren't treated like shit. They were catered to. Ingrates, maniacs and losers. They were angry because they were losers and knew it. They got the same opportunities, and more, than most American born citizens. Cry me a river. They should only have you for target practice.

    They were, of course, free to go back, where they won't have to put up with *our* shit. They'd've just had to live in Chechnia.

    The Tsarnaevs were oppressed by having to grow up in the heart of redneck, right wing, conservative, anti-intellectual America: Cambridge, MA.

    This election season has already been pretty amazing, and it’s only going to get better. It’s the first time I remember Americans telling the government, loud and clear, exactly what they want, and the establishment of both parties telling them “Of course that’s not what you want! What you want is this!”. And then they simply cannot understand why they’re losing votes to some upstart candidate.

    http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/dear-media-stop-freaking-out-about-donald-trumps-polls/

    It can be easy to forget it if you cover politics for a living, but most people aren’t paying all that much attention to the campaign right now.

    This burst of attention occurs quite late — usually when voters are days or weeks away from their primary or caucus. At this point in the 2012 nomination cycle, 10 weeks before the Iowa caucuses, only 16 percent of the eventual total of Google searches had been conducted. At this point in the 2008 cycle, only 8 percent had been. Voters are still in the early stages of their information-gathering process.

    Nate Silver insists that Trump is just a fad
     
    I am fairly sure no Republican candidate has had a large persistent lead in all New Hampshire and national polls and lost the nomination.

    This year looks just like the last election: very rich guy from the Northeast almost always in first and fends off a rotating case of Christian Right flavors of the month. Except Trump's leads are much larger than Romney's.

    Silver wrote:

    As the rest of the field consolidates around him, Trump will need to gain additional support to win the nomination.
     
    There is no reason to think the field shrinking will hurt Trump. In all the polls I've seen that ask the question, he is usually not only the number one choice, but is also the most popular second choice candidate.


    it’s not clear how much overlap there is between the people included in these surveys and the relatively small share of Republicans who will turn up to vote in primaries and caucuses.
     
    Reading this makes me think Silver has it in for Trump. Plenty of polls have cross-tabs, and Trump's share of the vote is remarkably level accross the various subgroups of Republicans and Republican-leaners. He's a little older, which is good, and a little more downscale, which is bad.

    Thanks for drawing more attention to this; it caused a mental facepalm upon reading. We should let more immigrants in... because their children will give us the next generation of home-grown terrorists?

    Anyway, I'm too distraught to even talk about this, because I just found out that Olga Kurylenko's new movie Momentum only made $69 US in its opening weekend. I'm hoping that maybe the 41 euro take was rounded down.

    https://youtu.be/XsgQrduXg8o

    Yes, that Olga Kurylenko, from the first Hitman movie. I can't talk now.

    I read a bio of Olga and it says she is a “French” actress. She moved to France at 16 from the Ukraine so I guess that counts as French these days. If black people and Algerians can be French I guess she can.

    Is Nicole Kidman an American actress?

    The French have had a very, if selectively, citizenist approach to their nationality for 200+ years, and it has been most strongly applied to eastern Europeans whose countries of origin the French had sympathy for. Granted, that's not really Ukraine as such. But France took a lot of both Poles and Russians and in many cases assimilated them pretty well with the exception of surnames.

    Other nationalities that got a bit of this treatment included the Irish and Scots. And in one case oddly stuck in my brain from reading about the Franco-Prussian war as a kid [weird kid], a Greek of note: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles-Denis_Bourbaki

    This was not so unusual among European nations- plenty of wholly assimilated English and prusso-Germans have French surnames too. But the French were most prone to this attitude and the ones most likely to treat Slav peoples to the possibility of French nationality.

    If Kidman had come to America as a child and had not kept close ties with Australia, and were a US citizen, many might call her an American actress, with some reason, and that would compare somewhat to Kurylenko. [NK may be a US citizen, but she kept ties to Australia, Australian nationality, and was already well begun in her profession before coming to the US. Plenty probably would still say "American actress" is a fair description, even with her accent].

    Famously, super-Australian Mel Gibson is in fact an American actor, born in the USA. The Aussies seemed content to consider him one of theirs as well.

    Plenty of Americans probably think of William Shatner, the late Lorne Greene, Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, and countless others as American actors. And since they made their careers in the US and so far as I know all took US citizenship [most of their kind do], fair enough. Even though they came to the US as formed adults seeking their fortunes, and maintained ties to their homeland. They were and are, of course, Canadians.

    The MSM and political elites are obviously terrified at the thought they might accidentally raise public consciousness of this and related issues. They are concerned to the degree that their evasions become ever more comically obvious. Today alone, I heard and read "analyses" of Trump's stunning poll numbers on NPR, the WaPO, and that worthless rag that still dares to call itself a conservative magazine. All managed to carefully elide mentioning Trump's positions on strengthening border security, restoring integrity to immigration and naturalization policy, and effectively dealing with ISIS, Al Q'aida and other dangerous Islamic organizations. Most amusing is that Trump's poll numbers show that the MSM and the elites have already lost this battle for hearts and minds even if they still have the money and clout to corrupt elections.

    and that worthless rag that still dares to call itself a conservative magazine.

    Well, here's a simple counter to Silver: he talks about the % of Google searches in the last two primary campaigns to claim that voters don't pay attention this early. What about the ratings of the debates at this point in previous cycles? Debates featuring Trump have set basic cable ratings records. That, by definition, means more people are paying attention now than during this phase of previous cycles.

    So what’s different this time? In Sweden, so the Daily Mail assures me, natives and refugees/colonizers engage in mutual arson and rock throwing and threats. This in SWEDEN!

    My guess is the scale and scope of the immavasion leaves no place for people to run. The end of White Flight is if not here, at least in sight. Which means White Fight. If you are White, and don’t want to live in Greater Mali, or Greater Afghanistan, then your only option is to fight.

    Here in this country that takes the form of Donald Trump. Since there is no Trump in evidence in places like Sweden or Germany, it takes the form of burning down refugee centers and even churches that take in refugees. People don’t want the Third World moving onto their lawn and IMHO will fight, in ways they have not even begun to contemplate, to keep what little they have.

    For generations, elites have been able to shove Diversity down the working man’s throat, and for the last two generations down the middle class man’s throat. Because flight was easier and cheaper. Given how atomized and individualized White men in particular are, that was predictable.

    BUT when flight is no longer possible, hard times stretch on far into the future, and a lifetime of servitude for foreigners coming to rule you beckons, FIGHT seems more and more attractive.

    Simple Argument: If the 19 hijackers never entered our country, there would have been no attack on 09/11/01.

    If Major Nadal Hasan's parents never entered our country, there would have been no FT. Hood Massacre.

    If the Tsarnaev brothers never set fooball American soil, ta lot of people from new England would have received on the bridge

    Option #1: Police your borders and who is entering them.

    Option #2: Have a police state.

    France is going for Option #2 now (constitution suspended; police powers expanded), and the Marco Rubio-John McCain wing wants to join them.

    I hope you guys are right. That f#cker has been right too many times before...

    Well, here’s a simple counter to Silver: he talks about the % of Google searches in the last two primary campaigns to claim that voters don’t pay attention this early. What about the ratings of the debates at this point in previous cycles? Debates featuring Trump have set basic cable ratings records. That, by definition, means more people are paying attention now than during this phase of previous cycles.

    Nate Silver insists that Trump is just a fad.

    http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/dear-media-stop-freaking-out-about-donald-trumps-polls/

    It can be easy to forget it if you cover politics for a living, but most people aren’t paying all that much attention to the campaign right now.
    ...
    This burst of attention occurs quite late — usually when voters are days or weeks away from their primary or caucus. At this point in the 2012 nomination cycle, 10 weeks before the Iowa caucuses, only 16 percent of the eventual total of Google searches had been conducted. At this point in the 2008 cycle, only 8 percent had been. Voters are still in the early stages of their information-gathering process.
     

    Nate Silver insists that Trump is just a fad

    I am fairly sure no Republican candidate has had a large persistent lead in all New Hampshire and national polls and lost the nomination.

    This year looks just like the last election: very rich guy from the Northeast almost always in first and fends off a rotating case of Christian Right flavors of the month. Except Trump’s leads are much larger than Romney’s.

    Silver wrote:

    As the rest of the field consolidates around him, Trump will need to gain additional support to win the nomination.

    There is no reason to think the field shrinking will hurt Trump. In all the polls I’ve seen that ask the question, he is usually not only the number one choice, but is also the most popular second choice candidate.

    it’s not clear how much overlap there is between the people included in these surveys and the relatively small share of Republicans who will turn up to vote in primaries and caucuses.

    Reading this makes me think Silver has it in for Trump. Plenty of polls have cross-tabs, and Trump’s share of the vote is remarkably level accross the various subgroups of Republicans and Republican-leaners. He’s a little older, which is good, and a little more downscale, which is bad.

    If the USA is anything like England, and Trump’s supporters are comparable to populist right parties in Europe, he is in very good shape.

    A quirk in the GOP process is that it allocates some delegates by congressional district. This gives the very few Republican voters in heavily democratic urban districts a sort of super-voter status.

    These types of areas in the UK are also where UKIP did the best relative to Conservatives.

    Steve, one of your links led to an article by Stan Greenberg saying that 2016 was going to be “shattering” for Republicans. Why? Demographics. I’ve pulled the relevant text.

    Further, these revolutionary transformations have accelerated the growth of a new majority coalition of racial minorities, single women, millennials and seculars. Together, these groups formed 51 percent of the electorate in 2012, but our analysis of census survey data and exit poll projections indicates that they will comprise fully 63 percent in 2016. With these growing groups each supporting Hillary Clinton by more than 2 to 1 in today’s polls, it is fair to say that the United States has reached an electoral tipping point.

    The Republican Party’s battle to defeat this new majority has reached a tipping point, too. The brand of the Republican Party today has probably not been as tarnished since the Watergate era.

    ….

    This battle has left the Republicans with mostly married voters, as well as the oldest, most rural and most religiously observant voters in the country. That creates formidable odds against its winning an electoral college majority.

    It has also left a Republican Party where three-quarters of its base voters are tea party supporters, evangelicals or religiously observant. That in turn has catapulted to the top of the Republican presidential race candidates who promise to challenge this new America before it’s too late.

    That this counterrevolution has reached its own tipping point is evident in the shrinking proportion of people who think of themselves as conservative. When Republicans challenged President Obama in the off-year elections of 2010, 46 percent of the country was conservative at the high point. That figure is now 37 percent.

    His analysis fits in very neatly with your description of Democrats as “the coalition of the fringes,” but his point is that the fringes now dwarf the core. I look at these demographics and it looks to me that Trump/Hillary would be a rerun of Goldwater/Johnson. What am I missing?

    It reads a lot into a lot of nebulous trends and assumes every voter is showing up to vote, and that homo butt sex + weed is the most important issue for millenials, abortion on demand is the only issue for women, and everyone with a z at the end of their last name wants to import everyone south of Laredo.

    It was a millennial sending Trump a tweet who got Trump to talk about the issue of black criminality in the mainstream, forcing the MSM to go OH YEAH WELL YOU'RE ONLY 7X MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY A BLACK, NOT 8X. The other option was to talk circles around the facts presented, declare that it was racist, but not explain what they were actually talking about and hope no one would research on their own.

    I think this entire "millennials as Democrats" is one of those memes that has very little basis in reality, much like the HISPANIC TIDAL WAVE. Yes there are indeed millennial Democrats, but there are just as many who are fashy reactionaries. I'd say millennials are leaning more to the Right than the Left.

    The Bomb Brothers are a topic near and dear to me because the showdown in Watertown happened in front of my old friend’s house. While it was happening he was texting pics of the cops flooding down his street. He and all of his neighbors were forced out of their houses while the cops looked for the younger Bomb Brother.

    Watertown has long been home to a large Armenian community that dates back to the 19th century. At one time, about 20% of the population was Armenian. When the Lebanese came over in the 70′s and 80′s, a lot of them settled into Watertown as well. In my lifetime, Watertown was a lower middle-class city with a certain Near Eastern vibe to it, but still plenty of the old New England culture.

    Visiting last summer, I had some time to kill so I walked around the Watertown Mall. It was full of Somalis clicking and popping as they milled around in their traditional garb. My friends tell me that dropping the Somalis into Watertown is setting off an Armenian and Lebanese flight to better exurbs. They have no illusions about what masses of Muslims mean to their community.

    I really liked her in Magic City. She seemed like perfect wifey material, which suits her better than the action gurrrl role here or the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold role in Hitman. And Elena Satine for a mistress, a man can dream. It's interesting how Olga could pass for Cuban in the show. She actually looked exotic, even though both her and Satine are Soviet imports.

    Kurylenko also played some sort of Bolivian intelligence agent in the Bond movie “Quantum of Solace”, though her character may have been described as half-Russian, I am not sure now. Her skin tone seems enough to suggest Generic Latin American as required.

    I wondered whatever happened to Elena Satine after she appeared once on one of those FBI-themed shows, one about missing persons, a few years ago. Wow.

    "Cunning Cruz" is pretty apt.

    I think he's intelligent enough to realize that there's no running to the right of Trump and he's left himself open to fatal ripostes if he challenges Trump. Expect a Trump-Cruz ticket.

    I think he's willing to bide his time as VP, build his portfolio, and run as Trump's succesor in 2024.

    Cruz is not eligible to run for president – he was born in Canada to a father who was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth. We should have learned from present circumstances how important it is to follow the rules set up by the founders. Anyone not eligible for the presidency is not eligible for the vice presidency.

    I read a bio of Olga and it says she is a "French" actress. She moved to France at 16 from the Ukraine so I guess that counts as French these days. If black people and Algerians can be French I guess she can.

    Is Nicole Kidman an American actress?


    Roy Keane said if Ahsley Young is a Man United player then he is a Chinaman. You mean Roy can't be a Chinaman? People agree that he is not a Chinaman,but that Ashley Young is English.

    The French have had a very, if selectively, citizenist approach to their nationality for 200+ years, and it has been most strongly applied to eastern Europeans whose countries of origin the French had sympathy for. Granted, that’s not really Ukraine as such. But France took a lot of both Poles and Russians and in many cases assimilated them pretty well with the exception of surnames.

    Other nationalities that got a bit of this treatment included the Irish and Scots. And in one case oddly stuck in my brain from reading about the Franco-Prussian war as a kid [weird kid], a Greek of note: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles-Denis_Bourbaki

    This was not so unusual among European nations- plenty of wholly assimilated English and prusso-Germans have French surnames too. But the French were most prone to this attitude and the ones most likely to treat Slav peoples to the possibility of French nationality.

    If Kidman had come to America as a child and had not kept close ties with Australia, and were a US citizen, many might call her an American actress, with some reason, and that would compare somewhat to Kurylenko. [NK may be a US citizen, but she kept ties to Australia, Australian nationality, and was already well begun in her profession before coming to the US. Plenty probably would still say "American actress" is a fair description, even with her accent].

    Famously, super-Australian Mel Gibson is in fact an American actor, born in the USA. The Aussies seemed content to consider him one of theirs as well.

    Plenty of Americans probably think of William Shatner, the late Lorne Greene, Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, and countless others as American actors. And since they made their careers in the US and so far as I know all took US citizenship [most of their kind do], fair enough. Even though they came to the US as formed adults seeking their fortunes, and maintained ties to their homeland. They were and are, of course, Canadians.

    Here's the thing... follow the logic. Even agreeing, for the sake of argument, that we stole America from the Indians, for the immigrants to come, by their own argument, they are receiving stolen goods -- which is just as egregious a sin.

    We stole it from the Indians, so it’s our moral duty to let someone else steal it from us.

    The comparison of modern immigration to the arrival of the Pilgrims is more revealing than the left wants to admit. Early on the two groups were on (tenuously) good terms, but conflict was the inevitable outcome and their gratitude didn’t last long in the face of their own desires and need to survive.

    Yeah, ok.... but the stolen-goods receivers, those guys that we have the moral duty to let steal America, in turn, from us, have to give it BACK to the Indians and leave, themselves, or they're just as guilty as we are.
    But the left never notices that.
    Interesting, what?

    Meanwhile, the Pilgrims, who we're told all one-sidedly made the Indians lives hard, and so too, us guys, the Pilgrims' heirs, here's an irony:

    The Crow Indians, a tribe of Plains Indians, live on a reservation in southern Montana. They are dirt-poor and often drunk, but at least the houses they live in have central heating, unlike the tipis they used to use, and their kids get free dental care. Their lives suck, sure, alcoholism, high suicide rate, but consider:

    The Crow are genetically related to Apache Indians, who used to do their Plains-Indians-ing in the American southwest (before it was annexed to U.S.) The Apaches, unlike today's Mexicans of mestizo descent, are the guys who really WERE "here first."

    Those Apaches HATED the Aztec Indians of central Mexico because anytime an Apache had the misfortune of wandering too far south, the Aztecs would catch him and use him for their human sacrifice rituals of ripping out the beating heart -- vivisection, no anesthesia.

    So the Apache, reasonably, hated the Aztecs and hate them still, and the Crow, being relatives, hate them, too, in sympathy.

    OK, so here we are a few centuries forward. The descendants of Aztecs, mixed with Spaniards, are moving north out of Mexico and into CONUS, including Wy, " just looking for a better life," so we're told.

    Here's a story of a Mestizo from Mexico (translation: descent of an Aztec and Spaniard mix) who wandered onto a Crow Indian reservation where his clunker-junk car broke down.

    A Crow Indian woman came along and took pity. So she went back to her house to get her husband and brought her daughter with her.

    The mestizo, because he was annoyed the Crow woman "took too long" to come back, shot her and her husband dead, and shot her daughter in the head as she fled. The daughter made it as far as the school to tell the people there before collapsing.
    The mestizo took off in the Crow family's car and was captured in the town he lived in, Powell Wy.

    SO.... here we have a story where one of the guys who are, righteously we are told, stealing from *us* the land we ostensibly stole, made life a whole lot worse for the descendants of people who really WERE here first.
    Why was the mestizo even *in* United States, to be able to commit this horrific crime upon that innocent Crow woman? Because we who "stole it" refuse to keep it from the next bunch of thieves -- who don't give even TWO CRAPS about the well-being of Plains Indians people.

    To be president you must be a "natural-born citizen" not just an American citizen. That means having both parents American citizens as well as being born within the United States. Since John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone while his father was serving in the U.S. Navy there, his eligibility to run for president was questioned. Here is a link from the New York Times about this issue: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/11/us/politics/11mccain.html?_r=0

    The rationale for the Senate allowing McCain to run does not apply to Mr. Cruz. And I wasn't trying to be snarky or "clever," I was simply raising a question that I am sure the Democrats would raise should Cruz be nominated by the Republican Party for either president or vice president, so it should be examined carefully. By the way, Marco Rubio's eligibility is also questionable, since neither of his parents were American citizens at the time of his birth. Donald Trump questioned Obama's eligibility, you will recall, so he may already have his lawyers looking into these matters.

    Fact sheet on refugees provided to the US House of Representatives briefing November 12, 2015
    Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 25, 2015


    ~The Refugee Act of 1980 created the Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) presently being administered to resettle approximately 70,000 refugees each year (in recent years) to the US.

    ~The Obama Administration increased the projected ceiling to 85,000 for FY2016. 10,000 of those slots are earmarked for Syrian refugees presently being referred to the US by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) which says it has selected 20,000 for consideration so far.

    ~When the President sends his “Determination” to Congress in advance of the fiscal year (two weeks in advance is required!) it is accompanied by a report (Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016). There is supposed to be a legally required consultation with Congress.

    ~There will be large increases this year from Africa including (but not limited to) DR Congo, Eritrea and Sudan. The largest number of refugees arriving in recent years are from: Burma (Myanmar), Bhutan/Nepal, Iraq, and Somalia. We admitted 120,000 Iraqis since 2007.

    ~In FY2015, we admitted 1,682 Syrian refugees, less than 40 were Christians/other minorities.

    ~In 2014, the United States took in 67% of the refugees resettled around the world. The next closest country was Canada with 9.9%.

    ~The UNHCR refers most of our refugees. The Department of Homeland Security is charged with doing the security screening. The Dept. of State (Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration) works with nine major refugee contractors who along with the State Dept. determine their placement in America. The Dept. of Health and Human Services (Office of Refugee Resettlement) provides grants and additional federal funding mostly through those nine non-profit agencies.

    ~The anticipated cost to the US Treasury of the resettlement process (not including welfare/Medicaid/education costs) is projected to be just short of $1.2 billion for FY2016.

    ~The nine non-profit ($$$$$$) agencies contracted to resettle refugees include: US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, World Relief (Evangelicals), Church World Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, Ethiopian Community Development Council, and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.

    ~There are 312 subcontractors ($$$$$$) working under the nine major contractors in 185 locations around the country. There are 24 offices located around the country for the processing of Unaccompanied Alien Children. A placement site map is available on line (attached).

    ~The states receiving the highest number of refugees in FY2015 were in descending order: TX, CA, NY, PA, FL, GA, MI, AZ, WA, and NC.

    ~States receiving no refugees in 2014 or 2015 were: WY, MT. Delaware received none in 2014.

    ~State and local elected officials have virtually no say in the resettlement process. This is especially so in the so-called Wilson-Fish states where the state doesn’t even have a refugee office under state government and the program is completely run through the US State Department and a non-profit organization. Those states are: AL, AL, CO, ID, KY, LA, MA, NV, ND, SD, TN, VT and San Diego County.

    ~Refugees are a special class of legal immigrant which permits them to receive virtually all forms of welfare upon arrival.

    ~Grassroots opposition is growing throughout the US to the resettlement process mostly due to the lack of transparency and the fear of Islamic radicals who might get in through the program.

    Some points regarding the proposed Syrian resettlement and the European migration crisis:

    ~Only about 50% of the migrants flooding Europe today are Syrians. The next highest number are from Afghanistan.

    ~These are a mix of asylum seekers and economic migrants. Asylum seekers must prove that just as refugees, they fear returning to their homelands for fear of persecution (escaping war per se has never been a part of the refugee definition).

    ~We are not expected to get refugees from the European flow (Malta exception). Ours will come through UN referrals from mostly UNHCR camps and regional offices.

    ~The refugee resettlement contractors (NGOs mentioned above) working with the US State Department began advocating several years ago for the resettlement of 15,000 Syrians per year for each of the next 5 years. They then modified their request to 65,000 Syrians before Pres. Obama leaves office. Subsequently they have demanded 100,000 Syrians before 2017.

    ~Earlier 14 US Senators wrote to the President asking for 65,000 Syrians. A total of 84 Senators and Members of Congress have subsequently urged the President to speed up security screening.

    ~FBI Director James Comey has told Congress that Syrians cannot be thoroughly screened because the Administration has no access to data (biographic or biometric) on most of them.

    Thanks for reading it all... there is good money to be made in the US refugee industry. These refugee "charities" pay great salaries to their top officers. They are always agitating for more refugees to be let in so they can make higher profits. Because the profits all get spent on salaries they keep their tax-free status as a non-profit. Its all a lie in my book.

    Nice try. His mother was an American.

    To be president you must be a “natural-born citizen” not just an American citizen. That means having both parents American citizens as well as being born within the United States. Since John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone while his father was serving in the U.S. Navy there, his eligibility to run for president was questioned. Here is a link from the New York Times about this issue: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/11/us/politics/11mccain.html?_r=0

    The rationale for the Senate allowing McCain to run does not apply to Mr. Cruz. And I wasn’t trying to be snarky or “clever,” I was simply raising a question that I am sure the Democrats would raise should Cruz be nominated by the Republican Party for either president or vice president, so it should be examined carefully. By the way, Marco Rubio’s eligibility is also questionable, since neither of his parents were American citizens at the time of his birth. Donald Trump questioned Obama’s eligibility, you will recall, so he may already have his lawyers looking into these matters.

    Often the original immigrants from Muslim countries were glad to get out of the hell-holes they came from, so it took a generation or so for racial and religious loyalty to resurface in the form of violence against the host country. Add to this the fact that they had less time for plotting terrorism because they had to work harder than the present generation of immigrants, there being fewer welfare benefits back then.

    More likely it’s the demonstrated population genetics phenomenon of regression to the population mean.

    The Muslims who come here who ARE of the “higher IQ/g” sort will in the second and subsequent generations experience regression to the group mean. As all populations do.

    The extremest dolts and bozos may in fact see their kids’ IQ/g go up a few points, but it has nothing to do with presence in America per se, PC assertions to the contrary.

    The higher IQ/g will see their kids’ IQ/g go down, since the mean for Muslim populations is astonishingly low globally, particularly in African nations.

    The “home grown terrorist” thing may be helped along by radicalization outreach, but we shouldn’t overlook the population genetics component. (Regression to the Mean means more than Magic Dirt…or 19th and 20th century American mythologies about Hard Working Immigrants.)

    But the SJWs always have plenty of grease for their victimization propaganda mills, and associated social work careers, assuring us of things like that it was racism that made the second generation terrorists, or lack of opportunity, or lack of sports clubs, or halal food, or microaggression, or whatever.

    Fact sheet on refugees provided to the US House of Representatives briefing November 12, 2015
    Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 25, 2015


    ~The Refugee Act of 1980 created the Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) presently being administered to resettle approximately 70,000 refugees each year (in recent years) to the US.

    ~The Obama Administration increased the projected ceiling to 85,000 for FY2016. 10,000 of those slots are earmarked for Syrian refugees presently being referred to the US by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) which says it has selected 20,000 for consideration so far.

    ~When the President sends his “Determination” to Congress in advance of the fiscal year (two weeks in advance is required!) it is accompanied by a report (Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016). There is supposed to be a legally required consultation with Congress.

    ~There will be large increases this year from Africa including (but not limited to) DR Congo, Eritrea and Sudan. The largest number of refugees arriving in recent years are from: Burma (Myanmar), Bhutan/Nepal, Iraq, and Somalia. We admitted 120,000 Iraqis since 2007.

    ~In FY2015, we admitted 1,682 Syrian refugees, less than 40 were Christians/other minorities.

    ~In 2014, the United States took in 67% of the refugees resettled around the world. The next closest country was Canada with 9.9%.

    And their spot on the 10,000 list will go to the highest bidder. (terrorists are well funded)

    "If the children of immigrants tend to cause problems, the issue is obvious: WE make them misbehave because we treat them like shit "

    The Tsarnaev's weren't treated like shit. They were catered to. Ingrates, maniacs and losers. They were angry because they were losers and knew it. They got the same opportunities, and more, than most American born citizens. Cry me a river. They should only have you for target practice.

    They were, of course, free to go back, where they won't have to put up with *our* shit. They'd've just had to live in Chechnia.

    > They were angry because they were losers and knew it.

    I don’t think this point can be stressed too strongly, even though this words it rather crudely (no problem with that, myself).

    The Magic Dirt proponents really do not comprehend how vast are the differences between different assortments of genetics–the population flows called “races.”

    There are a lot of people playing on covetousness and resentment, as well, who want to believe that people, like jobs, are entirely fungible.

    I remember a very skilled automobile mechanic of my acquaintance in the Philadelphia area when I was in grad school. I always did most of my mechanicking, except for the stuff that required a lift.

    He had been a “physician” in Armenia, thus his parents had emigrated well after Medz Yeghern. His family thought it would be easy for him, as a young doctor, the cream of his social set, to come to the US, requalify for his credentials, and get licensed…then start raking in massive money as an American doctor.

    They were all extremely surprised when he went to take the MCAT and scored in something like the lowest 10%. Some agency or service or something was certain that the problem was linguistic, so they assigned him translation services. But his English was in fact quite good. His family had spoken both Armenian and English at home…in Armenia.

    He and I talked about this over lunch in his garage one day, sitting on buckets. He said frankly that the problem wasn’t the test. “My family and I had no idea how far advanced the science is in the US and how much doctors here have to know. I’m simply not that smart. I had to face either going back to Armenia, or living here and finding another way to make a living. I was also very good at mechanical things, so I took a trade school program. Now I fix the cars of people much smarter than I’ll ever be.”

    There was a sense of disappointment…but no resentment. And a great sense of flexibility, and value for living in the US. In his view it would take another two or three generations of marrying well and working hard for his offspring to raise their intelligence sufficiently to become doctors. I think one of his four kids went on to become a practical nurse. He, his wife’s, and his entire family’s eye was on a much larger future time horizon.

    I always found him to be very intelligent–surely more so than most of the Affirmative Action blacks I’ve met since then in the professional schools. But he was right. His higher-order thinking was limited. But he was technically very gifted, one of the three best car mechanics I ever met…and one of the other two was an Armenian as well, in Glens Falls, NY.

    This election season has already been pretty amazing, and it's only going to get better. It's the first time I remember Americans telling the government, loud and clear, exactly what they want, and the establishment of both parties telling them "Of course that's not what you want! What you want is this!". And then they simply cannot understand why they're losing votes to some upstart candidate.

    I was astounded when I clicked on your link to the Reuters poll showing Trump at 38% but not as astounded as when I saw that in the prior days he was measuring above 42%, which is much higher than in the usual polls one sees on Real Clear Politics, which purports to be an impartial compiler of all points of view. Then it occurred to me that the Reuters poll is not carried or covered by RCP. I was encountering a disconnect when I would hear Trump citing polls showing him well ahead of the other candidates and could not reconcile what he was saying with what the polls carried by RCP were showing with him in 20 or so range. If the Reuters poll is accurate, then Trump’s support is much higher than we have been led to believe. I was fully aware that all the MSM are trying their best to downplay Trump and are attacking him at every opportunity, but I didn’t realize that animosity extended to downplaying Trump’s standing in the polls. After all, RCP carries the results of some pretty obscure polls, conducted by organizations more obscure and less well known than Reuters. No wonder D.C. is nervous about Trump right now.

I don't really get why nobody else paid attention to this resource since it's not like Reuters is an obscure name. (Ipsos is less well known in the U.S., but it's a big overseas market research firm headquartered in Paris.)

    So I wouldn't know about the reliability of their horserace poll, but their demographics data made a lot of sense, although I think they were doing a fair amount of we'll-fix-it-in-postproduction like PISA does with their test results.

    Substitute Muslim with Hispanic and terrorism with crime and send it to Unz.

    You’re right, but Ron Unz has made up his mind.

    As I have pointed out in prior posts, “hispanics” are categorized as white or black in most (if not the majority of) federal, state and local crime statistics.

    To very quickly see evidence of this, go to the Federal Bureau of Prison’s site http://www.bop.gov. Select Inmates and then Find an Inmate.
    1) In the Race drop down menu, there are four choices: American Indian, Asian, Black, White. No Hispanic.
    2) Type a Spanish surname such as Garcia, Rodriguez, Lopez, etc. The vast majority are White, and a few are Black. Again, no Hispanic.

    Or the Fort Dix six? Six radical Islamist men from Bosnia, Turkey and Jordan.

    Or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who attended two colleges and took flight lessons in North Carolina?

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

    Or Operation Smokescreen – Islamists in North Carolina financed Hezbollah by buying low tax cigarettes in NC and smuggling them to high tax states such as Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania. I presume smuggling is ongoing today; taxes in those states have greatly increased since this case in 1995.

    We stole it from the Indians, so it's our moral duty to let someone else steal it from us.

    The comparison of modern immigration to the arrival of the Pilgrims is more revealing than the left wants to admit. Early on the two groups were on (tenuously) good terms, but conflict was the inevitable outcome and their gratitude didn't last long in the face of their own desires and need to survive.

    Yeah, ok…. but the stolen-goods receivers, those guys that we have the moral duty to let steal America, in turn, from us, have to give it BACK to the Indians and leave, themselves, or they’re just as guilty as we are.
    But the left never notices that.
    Interesting, what?

    Meanwhile, the Pilgrims, who we’re told all one-sidedly made the Indians lives hard, and so too, us guys, the Pilgrims’ heirs, here’s an irony:

    The Crow Indians, a tribe of Plains Indians, live on a reservation in southern Montana. They are dirt-poor and often drunk, but at least the houses they live in have central heating, unlike the tipis they used to use, and their kids get free dental care. Their lives suck, sure, alcoholism, high suicide rate, but consider:

    The Crow are genetically related to Apache Indians, who used to do their Plains-Indians-ing in the American southwest (before it was annexed to U.S.) The Apaches, unlike today’s Mexicans of mestizo descent, are the guys who really WERE “here first.”

    Those Apaches HATED the Aztec Indians of central Mexico because anytime an Apache had the misfortune of wandering too far south, the Aztecs would catch him and use him for their human sacrifice rituals of ripping out the beating heart — vivisection, no anesthesia.

    So the Apache, reasonably, hated the Aztecs and hate them still, and the Crow, being relatives, hate them, too, in sympathy.

    OK, so here we are a few centuries forward. The descendants of Aztecs, mixed with Spaniards, are moving north out of Mexico and into CONUS, including Wy, ” just looking for a better life,” so we’re told.

    Here’s a story of a Mestizo from Mexico (translation: descent of an Aztec and Spaniard mix) who wandered onto a Crow Indian reservation where his clunker-junk car broke down.

    A Crow Indian woman came along and took pity. So she went back to her house to get her husband and brought her daughter with her.

    The mestizo, because he was annoyed the Crow woman “took too long” to come back, shot her and her husband dead, and shot her daughter in the head as she fled. The daughter made it as far as the school to tell the people there before collapsing.
    The mestizo took off in the Crow family’s car and was captured in the town he lived in, Powell Wy.

    SO…. here we have a story where one of the guys who are, righteously we are told, stealing from *us* the land we ostensibly stole, made life a whole lot worse for the descendants of people who really WERE here first.
    Why was the mestizo even *in* United States, to be able to commit this horrific crime upon that innocent Crow woman? Because we who “stole it” refuse to keep it from the next bunch of thieves — who don’t give even TWO CRAPS about the well-being of Plains Indians people.

    The Sicilian Mafia petered out? Aren't they still going strong in Italy?

    I'm reading Joe Pistone's book Donnie Brasco right now, written in the 80's, and he says the Sicilians were used as hitmen because they were unknowns to the FBI. Illegal and legal immigrants.
