  1. The 2020 election is a long, long ways off, and the attention span of the Merkin Public is notoriously short. Except for things beginning with Emmett and Trayvon and such. And that’s entirely the work of the MSM. Actually most everything is.

  2. Thomas says:

    This is assuming that this particular incident in El Paso is what the mainstream narrative is claiming it is. I don’t particularly trust either the FBI (who are supposedly taking over the case) nor the media to report anything honestly. So many of the details: the manifesto, the posting on 8chan, the use of the same weapon (WASR-10) used in Gilroy, etc., all seem to be too fitting to the narrative.

    Or maybe it is on the up-and-up, and both Trump’s failure to keep his campaign promises mated to the now-fashionable open crowing among the Establishment that “this is not going to be the country of white people” is finally pushing random angry young white men over the edge. The irony is that the same “Great Replacement” is called a conspiracy theory when a supposed “white nationalist” says it but it’s just par for the course when a leftist, Coalition-of-the-ascendant, or cuckservative says it. https://twitter.com/MaxBoot/status/1156340101393387520

    Breaking late tonight: supposedly another active shooting in Dayton, Ohio. https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/dayton-ohio-active-shooter-shooting/

  3. I genuinely wish I could help stop incidents like this from happening.

    I wish I could talk the perp down before he did what he did. After such an incident, I lose sympathy for the perp, I strictly sympathize with and would want to help the living victims or grieve the dead victims. But ideally, that just wouldn’t happen.

  5. Trying to get the news about this subject hours after it happened, I first looked on the internets, not much detail there. Then I went to cable news: Fox, CNBC, CNN.

    Fox: Human stories about tragedy, responders, an Army man helping children there.

    CNBC: Discussion about White supremacist terrorism.

    CNN: Discussion about racism and hate crimes in America.

    I give up. There is lightening right now flashing far off in the sleepless night. It happens often. The chances of it hitting me are “zero.” (!) So I ignore it. Shootings are now the same. Maybe if we really, truly ignore them, they will go away like the lightening.

    Up until recently, most terrorism in the West has been perpetrated by a relatively small minority – Muslims. That seems self-defeating in the long run, as it risks rousing the majority to expel the minority (although our elites took the opposite tack, and welcomed more Muslims after 9/11 than before). Terrorism by a majority or plurality group is a different dynamic though. I don’t think elites have thought this through at all. If the frequency of this picks up (as of now, there are reports of another mass shooting in Ohio), then what? Rapiscans at every Walmart?

    Lefties are predictably claiming that Trump’s rhetoric radicalized the El Paso shooter, but it seems more plausible that Trump’s lack of action on immigration may have contributed to that.

    I love El Paso. VERY SAFE city with a HUGE POLICE presence…..this shooting is a weird outlier. Law enforcement keeps most of the Juarez crime on that side of the border.

    There’s a great open flea market type area down near the border near the Greyhound station.

    What kinda ticked me off about it is just how American it is. I was wanting authentic food downtown but all there is are overpriced cafes selling hipster food and American fast food including a Churchs Chicken, Mcds(ask for the regional special green Chile double), BK, KFC and others.

    I stayed at the hotel that’s next to the arts district and the gay quarter, “pride square” or whatever.

    Despite being in the desert, the winds come down off the mountains and give a wonderful breeze. Much cooler than Vegas or Arizona in the summer time

  16. @Dave Pinsen

    If you read the manifesto, he objected to the presence of Hispanics full stop as their voting bloc would turn the US into a one-party Democrat state and destroy it economically. His hope was that acts of murder would encourage all Hispanics to leave the US, particularly the ones with voting rights. So Trump’s record on illegal immigration was irrelevant.

    Christchurch was a warning sign, now blood has been shed in the US sites like 8chan can expert far heavier police surveillance.

    Statistically you have about as high a chance of being killed by lightning or bees as you do in a mass shooting….

    Then again, my mother in laws deceased step mother died by lightning so “sh** does happen….” as the phrase goes. ..

    But should you worry? Nah….you have a FAR HIGHER chance of dying in a random car wreck or simply being struck by a car while walking or cycling down the road much less from random street crime where you are several hundred more times likelier to die than from terrorism or random nutso mass shootings like Virginia Tech or say Columbine…..

  19. Sean says:
    @Bob Smith of Suburbia

    For the prevention of teen suicides clusters there are guidelines for local papers such as: don’t put it on the front page; don’t ever say no one can understand why they did it. There should be guidelines for reporting mass shootings.

    There now needs to be a law that if a man says or even gives the slightest hints they are thinking about doing a mass shooting anyone they told is responsible for reporting it to the police and if they don’t report it they get serious time up to life. At present they can only be charged for lying about it to the Feds. Any male who is referred to a psychiatrist especially anyone prescribed antipsychotics should have no access to guns, including ones his family own and severe penalties for anyone allowing them to break that rule. Troubled young men (Tex was 21 just like Dylann Roof) do not benefit from being around guns (especially self loading rifles with 30 round clips).

  20. eah says:

    We’ve created a hyper-alienated “mass society” where neighbors, neighborhood festival attendees, and local shoppers are every bit as dehumanized as enemy combatants.

  21. USA presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is also from the same city of El Paso Texas … O’Rourke is floundering in the polls, and gave a press conference on the shooting, where he was eventually shedding some on-camera tears, but at first you can see him oddly laughing, at about the 42 second mark:

    There has been a Twitter account said to belong to ‘El Paso shooter Patrick Crusius’, copy preserved on the internet wayback machine archive org
    https://web.archive.org/web/20190803213655/https://twitter.com/patrickcrusius

    The tweets refer to David Duke etc, in a crude style, seemingly quite different from that of the somewhat university-educated and once again odd shooter-incongruous wording of the ‘manifesto’

    In his Twitter profile, ‘Patrick Crusius’ has a link to the ‘furry scene’, in particular ‘babyfur’ on ‘deviant art’

    ‘Furries’ are the people who dress up in costume play as animals and in part as a sexual game, said to be as much or more a gay as well as straight interest … ‘Babyfur’ combines the furry interest with infant child ageplay, e.g., wearing a fur animal outfit along with a nappy diaper

    And then there has been another shooting in Dayton Ohio with also a number of people dead, along with the California Garlic Festival shooting the other day … this trio of events not long after the USA FBI warned about the ‘domestic white terrorist’ etc threat

  22. @Neoconned

    Statistically you have about as high a chance of being killed by lightning or bees as you do in a mass shooting….

    But the chance of being killed by lightning has gone down over the last 60 years while the chance of being killed by one of these mass shooters has gone up. That’s a problem.

  25. @Neoconned

    El Paso is at 3,740 feet elevation (1100+ meters), which is nice. You are not likely to find the air there too thin as you get old, but the elevation cuts the temperature by 13 or 14 degrees F.

    As I’ve often mentioned, I consider elevation an understudied topic. My uncle built his retirement dream house at 9000 feet, but that proved more difficult in old age. There are a lot of different elevations available in the American West, so you can fine tune your altitude-latitude tradeoff.

  26. Dave Pinsen says: • Website
    @Ali Choudhury

    Trump’s record on illegal immigration is relevant because many (most?) Hispanic citizens are descendants of illegal immigrants, but Trump’s failures on immigration aren’t limited to illegal immigration. Restrictions on legal immigration have been mooted but not implemented either.

  27. @Bardon Kaldian

    Same here but it’s safe to say that this is a subtlety that will be lost in the media frenzy. That’s putting it kindly.

    @Steve Sailer

    I did my 2 big western American road trips in 2016 and 2017. In 2016 I picked up 2 Mexican girls downtown and walked around the arts bar area. That was at night though. Downtown El Paso has a LOT of homeless but really docile old black guys who crash on the benches

    In 2017 I actually stayed there and saw Juarez a bit. Like any where “if you look for trouble you’ll find it”….I found the Mexicans friendly and docile and at worst indifferent to this gringo.

    The wind thing though. It was bizarre in that I’d get blasted with this hot dry wind and immediately after this cool mountain breeze would follow it and I’d close my eyes and soak it in. And it wasn’t like Phoenix either, where the sidewalk was covered with homeless faces in areas and the sidewalk was so stinking hot it melted my sandals.

    I’m from NOLA and Phoenix is the only thing out west I’ve found to rival the southern humidity although it’s pure dry heat. Tucson was a mix of el Paso and Phoenix…..hot but not as bad as Phoenix which I think is in a giant pan. Tucson had that breeze while Phoenix was hot as hell and stuffy and stagnant .

    You should do more posts about tropical snow glaciers like in the Andes or in the higher elevations of Africa etc

    I loved California. It was hot as hell thru barstow and San Bernardino and finally cooled way off when I crossed the San Gabriels.

    I also took Amtrak to visit family in San Jose before visiting Humboldt.

    San Jose they didn’t even need freaking air conditioning…..it was 50F at night when you open the windows and Humboldt was 40F at night in freaking July! And that was only 2-3k feet elevation off the PCH!!

    Back at the topic of the shooter…I bet had he had a young Salma Hayek to rub his feet at night he wouldn’t have been so bigoted and stuoid.

    We should follow Authocon and his advice and import millions of single female latinas and Asian women….the birth rate will shoot up and our white harpies will get with the picture or move to Africa to satisfy their jungle fever.

    It’s a matter of public record that the FBI has engaged in “glowposting” their own conspiracy theories on 8chan. (https://ceinquiry.wordpress.com/2019/06/17/fbi-8chan/)

    My guess is it’s too useful for the feds and the various other powers that be for that reason alone. The rest… depends on how conspiratorial you are. Posts there are already saying that if they don’t get taken down, it’s evidence they’re a fed operation at this point.

  32. @Neoconned

    Phoenix is at only 1124 feet, so it’s really hot. Tucson is considerably higher at 2438 feet.

    As a boomer, I’ll accept a certain share of the blame for the preset situation. But the really bad public policy decisions (e.g., the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Hart-Cellar immigration reforms of 1965) were made by the “Greatest Generation.” The Boomers began exerting serious public policy influence only in the 1980s, at which time, I’ll concede, they made their own share of bad decisions.

    El Paso is a great town, and if you are into Latinas, there’s thousands of beautiful, young, pony-tailed Mestizas. The white and (brown) hispanic cultures there mix, as with much of Texas, and most latinos either are mixed with white, or have family members married to whites.

    Every time someone does something that discredits your side, the knee jerk reaction is to immediately dismiss it as “a false flag operation”. They can’t ALL be false flag operations. This is letting off your side too easy. The right, like every other group, has some bad actors, people who are shy of a full picnic, etc. This doesn’t mean that the entire right is tainted. Denial is a natural human response and no one wants to see their side painted in press as a bunch of Nazis, but these shootings do happen and they can’t all be false flags.

    Lightning is the very definition of an Act of God – something whose cause is beyond human control (even then we put lightning rods on our buildings, get off the gold course when there are thunderstorms coming, etc.) But these shootings are man made. They didn’t used to happen (as much). Now they happen sometimes literally every day. So far you odds are still good but at the current rate they are getting less good every day.

    In a free country, you generally don’t hold people criminally responsible for the words and actions that they were not complicit in. I hope most Americans are not crazy enough to trade an infinitesimal chance of being shot for living in a KGB rat society.

    Frustration and anger have been building among heritage Americans ever since the changes in the immigration laws in 1965 were forced on us without our ever having being asked or giving consent, and it shouldn’t be surprising when some of the more unstable among us snap, especially after such bold promises were made in 2016, giving us hope and building up expectations. Even now, our would-be “elites” continue down this path of arrogance and contempt toward “deplorables,” allowing over a million legal immigrants from across the globe to come to the country each year, doing nothing to address the anchor-baby industry, and welcoming, with food, clothing, shelter, and medical assistance, the thousands of “asylum seekers” charging the southern border. And the leading Dem contenders for the Presidency add fuel to this fire by advocating de-criminalizing illegal immigration and providing free healthcare to immigrants.

    Well, here is something to consider: in both the Gilroy and the El Paso shootings, witnesses reported multiple gunmen, but the police were (too) quick to assert that the shootings were the work of only one person.

    Maybe the police are right, but I want to know how they determined that so quickly – did they analyze all of the shell casings and determine they came from only one weapon?
    (No – they were still in the process of collecting evidence.)

    Did the police ballistics lab analyze all of the bullets and realize only one gun?

    No. Many of the victims were (and are) still be treated for multiple gunshot wounds – the police could not have recovered and analyzed all of the bullets that actually hit people, let alone those that missed, in the time before they made their premature announcements.

    Were there multiple shooters in both incidents? Has the narrative been shaped to hide the presence of potential accomplices?

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7317905/El-Paso-police-say-theres-active-shooter-local-mall.html#v-1095849101931856524

    So it would seem.

    “I heard the shots but I thought they were hits, like roof construction,” said Adriana Quezada, 39, who was in the women’s clothing section of Walmart with her two children.
    Quezada said she saw four men, dressed in black, moving together firing guns indiscriminately. Police confirmed only one gunman.”
    (Confirmed? How the hell could they “confirm” anything at that moment?)

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7317905/El-Paso-police-say-theres-active-shooter-local-mall.html#i-1bb9d390af0a2f22

    Basic questions have not been asked:

    How did the gunman get from his home outside Dallas to El Paso? Did he drive? (It is a ten hour drive and the shooting began at 10:30 am – did the shooter leave Dallas at midnight and not stop anywhere?)
    If he did stop, where, and with whom did he stay?
    He supposedly lived with his grandparents in a Dallas suburb – did they find him missing on Saturday morning?
    Did he have his own car? If not, did someone drive him to El Paso?
    If he flew, how and when? Where did he get the money for the airline ticket, and how long ago did he pay for it? (Airline ticket purchases leave electronic records easily searchable by Federal authorities.)
    Did he have a job? Where? Who was paying him, and what precisely was he doing for a living?
    News reports say he attended Collins College from 2017 until 2019, some three months ago. Where did he get his money?

    Where did the “assault rifle” come from? Did he buy it? How long ago? Where did he practice?
    Who paid for it? Where did the ammunition come from?

    Again, how the hell can the police be confident that in less than 24 hours they know all the anwers to all of these questions and be so sure that no one else, NO ONE ELSE, was involved in any way?

    All of these questions (and more) may have innocent answers. But the speed with which the authorities determined that the gunman was alone – a narrative parroted by the worthless MSM – leaves me very, very suspicious . . .

    Lefties are predictably claiming that Trump’s rhetoric radicalized the El Paso shooter, but it seems more plausible that Trump’s lack of action on immigration may have contributed to that.

    It’s not just Trump’s lack of action, but it is the appearance, with good measure, that the entire apparatus of the state is not only doing nothing about immigration, but is actively encouraging it by sabotaging any efforts to curb it.

    People are incredibly innumerate about immigration, and I often find them surprised when I tell them that what we have had since 1965 is unprecedented in human history. It is estimated that English America, from Jamestown in 1607 to around 1957, a period of 350 years, took in about 42 million settlers, colonists, pioneers and immigrants. But from 1965 until today, a period of just 54 years, we’ve taken in 60 million with no end in sight.

    Yet there was never a bottom-up push for mass immigration. It was always directed from the top down. And those at the top benefited while those at the bottom picked up the social and other costs associated with such an unprecedented population infusion.

    Yet rather than acknowledge this and throttle back, the top has decided to increase the rate of flow. What surprises me is not this shooter in El Paso, or the guy in Christchurch. I’m surprised we are still at the point where you can count these events on one or two hands. Recall at the peak of the insurgency in Iraq there were car bombs and IEDs going off left and right. So many that one could not readily keep track of them.

    I find it remarkable that Americans have so far shied away from violence and attempted to use the ballot box to address their grievances. Yet the top has ignored this time and time again. As others have said, Trump might be the last peaceful option. If the top doesn’t like Trump, they will probably dislike what comes after Trump even more.

  104. Wilkey says:

    Obviously (to me anyway) what you want to say is that this shooting is what you get when powerful interests refuse to accept perfectly reasonable and entirely peaceful efforts by the voters to achieve a perfectly respectable political aim, like ending illegal immigration. The most visible example of that would be the federal judge, Mariana Pfaelzer, who shot down the 1994 effort, supported by nearly 60% of California voters, to deter illegal immigrants, but there are many, many others, such as the fact that even discussing the consequences of mass immigration is not tolerated in so many places.

    That still doesn’t make violence an acceptable solution, and it doesn’t quite cover all the complexities of the issue, of course, but it’s close. In a better world the only violence that would have been committed is the tarring and feathering of every bureaucrat and politician, including the late Judge Pfaelzer, who skunks the will of the voters. But then again, in a better world the voters would have had the intelligence and self-respect not to elect, or re-elect, most of them.

    “Trump won in 2016 because of Muslim and BLM terrorism.” You deny Hillary her due credit.

    Trump won by a margin of about 80,000 votes. The string of massacres and other incidents, in the US and elsewhere (particularly France), by left-leaning or supported crazies in the run-up to the 2016 election was almost perfectly timed to help Donald Trump. The margin of victory was so small that I think it’s fair to say that if even just two or three of those incidents hadn’t happened that Trump probably would have lost.

    The violence by leftists seems to have dropped off, in part, I think, because election victories by conservatives have made the lefties feel a little less sure of themselves. Shockingly (though perhaps it shouldn’t be), political violence seems to be committed mostly by people who perceive themselves to be on the winning side of an issue. Muslims feel like the West is committing political and demographic suicide, and are bolstered in that belief when we elect politicians like Hillary Clinton, but not when we elect leaders such as Trump or vote for policies like Brexit.

    Anyway, unless we see a lot more crazies like Crusius it seems like it won’t amount to much, politically. There just isn’t that much right-wing political violence, and it is not embraced or encouraged by the vast majority of people on the right.

    A cursory look at the list here:

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

    indicates that the number of really high-casualty mass-shootings has dramatically increased over the last twenty years. The increase is more than it would appear since many of older murders on that list were not anonymous crimes, but rather due to drug-deals, inter-family murders, etc. Although the number of deaths per capita from these mass shootings has probably not increased nearly as much.

    But it’s not the availability of guns that’s causing this. Semi-automatic weapons have long been available, and in abundance, for decades. I think Steve is on to something that it is down to the increase in athieism and nihlism.

    Every time someone does something that discredits your side, the knee jerk reaction is to immediately dismiss it as “a false flag operation”. They can’t ALL be false flag operations…. This doesn’t mean that the entire right is tainted. Denial is a natural human response and no one wants to see their side painted in press as a bunch of Nazis, but these shootings do happen and they can’t all be false flags.

    I don’t what what you’re talking about “ALL” shootings. I’m talking about one, the one in El Paso, which has a lot of extremely dodgy details already. An eyewitness said she saw four shooters in black. (https://youtu.be/8eMdEh7txhw) Yes, I know eyewitnesses are often wrong, but that’s an extremely specific thing to see and to get wrong, when the official story is supposedly one lone shooter. There are claims that police shot someone else on site. There is already a known history of FBI glowposting on 8chan that’s a matter of public record, as I cited above. There are other weird details, like the suspect wearing cargo pants in the security video but wearing khaki slacks when he was arrested. (https://twitter.com/DeepStateExpose/status/1157844455157837825)

    What is your case for buying the narrative? Is it just a boomer thing to believe whatever they’re putting on your TV? Do you honestly not believe that the media has an agenda to work? Or that law enforcement might not? We’ve just been through three years of a Byzantine, politicized investigation by the FBI to investigate a supposed treasonous conspiracy to rig a national election that never actually happened. Closer to the subject matter at hand, I still don’t believe that we ever got the straight story on what happened in a previous mass shooting, the Las Vegas massacre. (My guess: Stephen Paddock was a person law enforcement already was aware of and knew they needed to keep an eye on, either a suspect or an informant of theirs.) Law enforcement authorities in Texas, the same state where this incident happened, not long ago buried the facts surrounding a mass shooting involving biker clubs, keeping meritless criminal cases against hundreds of people going that ultimately resulted in zero convictions, in part to cover their own asses given that four out of nine of the victims were shot by police. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Waco_shootout)

    If you don’t believe that media and government conspiracies to mislead the public or to conceal facts, often flagrantly, are possible and common, you’re willfully dismissing the evidence, and I kind of wonder if you actually read this blog. If there’s any possibility we’ll actually know what happened in this case, it comes from the fact that, unlike Las Vegas, they’ve supposedly got a live suspect and Texas is enthusiastic about the death penalty, making a trial more likely (assuming the suspect doesn’t “commit suicide” in custody). And any Wal-Mart is going to have security cameras aplenty, so it’ll be pretty notable if there’s a dearth of footage of this incident.

    Supposedly? What, those people are faking being dead? They are crisis actors?

    When I posted that, the story from Dayton was just breaking, and it’s not uncommon, especially in the aftermath of another shooting for some incident to get misreported. There’s been more than one shooting recently (two in California that I can think of, one in a Wal-Mart in Corona and another in San Bruno) that were originally reported as possible “mass shootings” that turned out to be much more conventional criminal or alleged self-defense incidents.

    That’s a lot of words to say nothing. Dismissing a dismissal because of circumstances is itself committing the same crime. What should matter is the oddness of the event. An angry black guy shooting a cop just is not in any way bizarre in the same way that comic book white “crazies” following an entirely made-up media pattern are. It’s a convenient shorthand to say “Dallas” but blacks agitated by BLM were assassinating cops in smaller incidents leading up to Dallas, and of course BLM itself is hardly the innovator here.
    Blacks trying to kill police officers is the most believable and ordinary thing in the world, and is perfectly logical. White mass shooters literally start in the age of social engineering and gun control, and were never even attempted or discussed before that.
    And it always happens in a declared or effective gun-free zone.

    There now needs to be a law that if a man says or even gives the slightest hints they are thinking about doing a mass shooting anyone they told is responsible for reporting it to the police and if they don’t report it they get serious time up to life.

    So are you obligated to report anybody making a passing reference to “going postal”. Serious prison time for not reporting “the slightest hint” of something. On what legal basis? On what moral basis. Why don’t you just say you want a police-state.

    To be fair to this judge, she was mostly just following the binding Supreme Court precedent of Plyler v. Doe. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plyler_v._Doe

    That was a very close 5-4 decision which decided that U.S. taxpayers are required by the Constitution to give free education to children of foreigners in the country illegally.

    There was zero Constitutional basis for the result. The liberal justices just wanted to make good “policy” and show compassion for children. So it was a classic example of Holmes’ dictum that “hard cases make bad law.”

    At the very least, politicians – certainly the President – could refrain from talking or tweeting about it, and they certainly shouldn’t visit the scene of the crime. Obama went to Sandy Hook. Trump went to Las Vegas. Now ever psycho knows he can conjure up a Presidential visit as a capstone to his barbarous act of mass-murder.

But then how the hell do you manage to keep those police who are not in on the staging from seeing something they should not see in such a chaotic situation? And it certainly would be chaotic if some police are not in on the staging. Or, if all of the police are in on the staging, how do you keep a secret among so many people and convince them all to go along? Are most rank-and-file city cops in Texas ideologically disposed to murdering random people at Wall Mart? Without that I don’t think this can be pulled off. Or, if there are no actual victims, the grieving families are faking it and so are the paramedics and hospitals and mortuaries. Where did so many people have their secret meetings to plan this?

  153. It is a bit much to say that Trump is to blame, but I do think that his lack of common sense and combative tweeting has helped to foster an online atmosphere in which the crazies can be spurred to action.

    If you look at the history of presidential and similar assassinations in the US, most of them have been crazies, rather than Day of The Jackal type professional assassins, and there has always been something in the zeitgeist that has spurred them to act, rather than just smoulder like butts in an ashtray and stay up all night smoking cigarettes, playing violent video games, and watching internet pornography.

    For example, in the case of Timothy McVeigh, the resentment he had as a former goverment trained assassin or “marksman” who had served his country, but was not doing so great at using his skills in civvy street, towards the federal government seems to have been exacerbated by the horrible Waco siege and massacre to the extent that he and his friends lost whatever marbles they had previously possessed.

    Discouragement of this kind of thing is what lies behind the rather repressive hate speech laws in places like Britain. The fear is that unrestricted speech on racial topics will bring crazies out of the woodwork and that there will be killings, then there will be retaliatory killings, and control will be lost.

    Although Britain has had only ever had one “active shooter” massacre of this kind (in 1996), there have been a number of riots and conflagrations, one of which was triggered by a police shooting of a known criminal who had just taken possession of an illegal gun and been tracked by an undercover police operation.

  159. @Sean

    Real meaning: ‘not taking his medication’.

    This hits on a frequent (ubiquitous?) element of mass shootings – the use of prescription adhd/mood-altering/psychotropic drugs by the shooter. Pharma ads are the commercial media’s bread and butter, so they are never going to go there, though you would logically suspect that substances that affect emotion and cognition could potentially play some part in violent behavior, especially since such behavior is an admitted side effect of most of these drugs. Fortunately, the media can ignore the drugs and go straight to the wacky social media posts (which are probably also the result of the drugs combined with the mass behavioral modification experiment known as social media).

    If we want to blame boomers for something, I’d say permitting the long term drugging of their children for purposes of behavioral control in state-run daycares/indoctrination camps/minimum security prisons (otherwise known as “public schools“) is a valid complaint.

    It’s quite often suicide by Supermax instead of cop for men who don’t have the guts to be shot. Yes, there should not be a photo published of the shooter, at all ever. No security camera footage of them looking scary released to the media. None of them in cuffs under arrest. Nothing. Already on Wikipedia the are no articles on the shooters, those articles with titles of the shooter’s name have been changed to ‘the [location] shooting’. The media companies are all appealing for bystander footage and everyone has phones now. That must be stopped: by law no security camera or phone ect images released to the media and they are not allowed to pay for them.

    Food has always existed and sometimes it was even served fast, but “fast food” is a specifically American invention of the McDonald brothers, who applied assembly line techniques to restaurant service. Ray Kroc, a milkshake machine salesman, wondered why the McDonald brothers needed 8 milkshake machines for their restaurant when most customers barely needed one. When he saw the answer he realized that this model could be adapted to many more locations and started selling franchises. Col. Sanders realized that his pressure frying device could be used to produce large quantities of fried chicken quickly. It was high volume driven by machinery and automation. that can’t be achieved by one man and a charcoal brazier or whatever was used in the past. Instead of selling $100/day you could sell $1,000/day out of the same footprint. You could sell a hamburger for 15 cents instead of 25 cents and the line would be out the door because no one could match your prices or consistent quality.

White nationalists and ISIS have more in common than either side would care to admit. They both long for a war of civilisation although in the former’s twisted fantasies this war would be internal between whites and the rest. The white nationalist morons actually want more El Paso type violence and are longing for retaliation by the other side as a prelude to a civil war.

    But if a genuine or false flag shooting occurs right before the 2020 election then Trump will probably be toast since lefties truly believe Trump enables these shootings even though most of the shooters hate Trump, as did Robert Bowers of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, or are critical of him as was the El Paso shooter.

    That was a very close 5-4 decision which decided that U.S. taxpayers are required by the Constitution to give free education to children of foreigners in the country illegally.

    There was zero Constitutional basis for the result.

    No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to ANY PERSON WITHIN ITS JURISDICTION the equal protection of the laws.

    14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Well, now, it really all depends on whether you interpret the word ‘jurisdiction’ to mean a physical location, or whether it allows for the possibility that people could be on your territory, but not subject to your jurisdiction, like having diplomatic immunity.

    Seeing that the 14th Amendment was introduced with the main purpose of nullifying the brilliant Supreme Court decision in the case of Dred Scott, which stated that no person of African descent was a citizen of the US, or ever could be, and that therefore Scott had no standing before the court and that his petition was dismissed, or had in fact never existed–this is how lawyers think–it seems improbable that it could be interpreted to say that there were still people who were not subject to the jurisdiction of the state laws, because they were foreigners.

    Imagine that these illegal immigrant children were training as gangs of pickpockets, or prostituting themselves. Would the state of Texas really claim to have no jurisdiction over them out of allegiance to the peculiar way the state of Texas understands the Constitution–even though it would be ridiculous?

    The amazing thing is that 4 Supreme Court dunces voted against this ruling.

    In general the United States at the federal level seems to think that foreigners should be subject to the laws of the US, even when they are in their own countries or other countries, as in the case of Julian Assange, who is an Australian citizen, currently in the United Kingdom.

    Of course it goes without saying that the Supreme Court is a joke. I say this because in many cases, even though the learned justices have a lifetime of legal studies, are experts on the Constitution, and each have teams of smart young lawyers to help them research the law, I can predict exactly how they will rule and even state which justices will be for and which will be against with an astonishing degree of accuracy, even though I have no legal training whatsoever.

    I am sure all of the justices are sincere in their desire to give just rulings, but each of them rules based on a wonky lens of their lived experiences which deflects the rays of truth either to the left or to the right, and none of them are really objective.

    Good on you that you found a cite, but here’s how it really works:
    Everything is just a paper doily for the Bill of Rights, which stops shy of Number 14.
    The Bill of Rights is a coherent crystalline structure, the actualization of all the foundations underlying it. It is the visible character of our law, something like the British unwritten Constitution.
    The stuff after the Bill of Rights is not a coherent crystal, it’s a random scatterplot of arrows hurled at the American project by its enemies, Utopian nonsense that seemed good at the time, and deliberate efforts to eventually undo what came earlier.
    >Nonsense, you’re not a judge and they are, the Constitution is whatever the Supreme court says
    No. This brings us to the question of why we have a Constitition. A legislator on or off a bench can pass or discover any law he wants, yes, but it has to be legitimate, and that means it has to square with the Bill of Rights. A real contradiction would not be an obscure legal issue fit only for the educated — it would be apparent to the country. It’s sort of like an extremely slow referendum.
    The project of our ruling class for more than my lifetime has been to try to destroy the Bill of Rights by hyperinflating it. They think they’ve gotten away with it, but it’s really just taking us a while to get back to them, and electoral records will bear out that people consistently want the project to stop. If rectification happens, the media will pull hair out and insist that it’s chaotic craziness, but it won’t be.

    No one was claiming that states don’t have jurisdiction to regulate the conduct of foreigners who are illegally within their boundaries. The issue is whether the U.S. Constitution allows state governments to draw a distinction between legal and illegal foreign residents when they are deciding how to spend their limited tax funds.

    This should be a legitimate area of state responsibility. The problem, of course, is that the entire Constitution has been largely reduced to whatever judges believe would be good policy, in their opinion.

    Once judges decide on the result, they can invoke the terms “equal protection” and “due process” to justify the outcome. These words are utterly malleable and can be used to supply any person with any “right” (i.e., a duty owed to that person by the rest of society), that a majority of the Supreme Court wishes to create.

    These two phrases have almost entirely swallowed up the specific checks and balances of the remaining text of the Constitution. Americans don’t realize it — but for all the talk of our sacred parchment “Constitution” laid down by the founders — we are actually operating under a common law, judge-written constitution which arises from these two fateful phrases.

    I became aware of this when I lived in Bermuda in the early 80’s and the only fast food franchise in town (Hamilton) was a Kentucky Fried Chicken on Queen St.

    Bermuda is self governing, and the local bigwigs did not like the idea of foreigners unnecessarily sucking money out of the local economy. Obviously in some cases it was inevitable, for example companies that provided international telecommunications or oil. But there were plenty of people in Bermuda who knew how to fry chicken.

    So legislation was enacted in 1977 banning foreign fast food franchises, although the existing Kentucky Fried Chicken was grandfathered in and given an exemption.

    A few years later a McDonalds was opened on the US Naval Air Station, which was outside the jurisdiction of the Bermuda govt. and was opened for a few hours every Saturday afternoon for local residents, who were allowed to drive onto the base to go to the McDonalds.

    No doubt this was a cultural outreach effort to get Bermudian children addicted to Happy Meals.

    The base was closed in 1995 and at McDonalds all hands went down with the ship, leaving Kentucky Fried Chicken again as the only fast food outlet.

    Son once again Bermuda shared the distinction, along with Iran, of having no McDonalds.

    However, Bermudians proved perfectly capable of producing their own fast food outlets such as The Ice Queen, the Pizza House, Mr. Chicken, and others. Kenny Bascome and his wife Rochelle made excellent hamburgers and fries at the Tobacco Bay Beach cafe, before he went into politics where he enjoyed giving people his opinions on everything, as he did at the cafe.

    And the profits stayed in Bermuda.

Look, some people died somewhere but let’s not forget the real victim of white supremacist mass shootings: white supremacists that will now be demonised by the media and stigmatised in societal discourse. Sure, there has been a rise in white supremacist mass murders in the past 5 years but if you actually look at the root cause, it’s our fault for alienating white supremacist mass shooters that are actually just misunderstood young men disenfranchised from society! End misoleukodynamism!

    These Conserva-cuck guys are like King Canute at the sea shore. And about as effective.

    So far, the Dayton shooter looks like some nut case who shot his sister, his sister’s boyfriend, and possibly other family members. Somewhat like the Muslim immigrant who killed his whole family last week or the Muslim dude who beheaded his wife.

    Muslim jihadis seem a type. Mostly, family men: Mohammed Atta, the Tsarnaev Brothers, the San Bernadino shooter Rizwan Farooq and his wife Tashfeen Malik (the family that prays together, massacres the co-workers together). In th US at least, these are not marginal, low life scum without much going for them who find Islam in prison and get directed by Imams to blow concert goers up in Manchester or mow down tourists on the London Bridge or shoot up a heavy metal concert in Paris. Nope these are all solid family men like Major Hassan who go on Jihad because that’s what a Muslim does.

    These dudes are laying low for now, but there is only so much AI and Google/Faceborg’s network can do before the sheer volume of Muslims in the US leads to more jihad.

    The Gilroy shooter seems part White Identity, Part Islamic Jihad. He was part Iranian. Had a lot to say about Jihad apparently. The El Paso shooter seems somewhat like the Christchurch shooter and Anders Breivik.

    Sure, we can have speech bans and gun bans and all sorts of bans, but how do we prevent young, desperate, atomized, friendless, no-future-for-you White and Whitish men from going on White Jihad? Really. I want to know.

    We can have blue haired SJW feminists scream at loser White males, and particularly hard on those who are just average or below it, and celebrate every tranny freak, non-White aspiring Rapper, and degenerate old debauched big shot, but what’s to stop said dude from stealing a truck and driving it down say the latest GLBTQWERTY festival, or Eid celebration, or what not? Particularly since its very easy for remote Chinese agents or Iranian ones or whoever to stir up stuff on that front, both the hate-White dudes stuff and resentment which is natural on the part of the recipient.

    This El Paso shooter is already famous. He’s famous beyond words now, and his trial will be a giant circus. I am sure the Dems / Media will use this to indict Trump, and sure as Nice White ladies love love love open borders and socialism, Trump will lose in a landslide. ANY of the current clown show can beat Trump, easily.

    But then what? Since most White dudes who don’t look like a young Brad Pitt are consigned to a life of loserdom, the sheer numbers of White dudes who are the product of single mothers, no sibling, no father around, no religion, no religious community and friends, no real job, no prospect of a girfriend or wife, nothing but society/media/big shots screaming at him every day that he’s evil and has to be killed — what’s to stop him from going all Butch and Sundance on his enemies?

    I’d really like to know the game plan? Genocide? Sure the big shots all dream of it, but that’s a hard thing to pull off and particularly when the vast majority of your fighting forces are White men. Drones run by H1-B visa holders from Pakistan and India and China? Sure until said drones need servicing, who will do that?

    So far the situation is containable if the trial is held quickly, the dude is sent to death row, quickly, no press, no fame, no indictment of Trump (which by definition will make the shooter World Wide FAMOUS to the point of ultra ultra fame, more famous than any movie or rock star). This guy along with Breivik and the Christchurch guy makes three. It says a lot of good things about young White men that they have not gone for the cheap easy killer fame.

    The temptation to get Trump and his Deplorables however by Dems, the Media, Cuckservatives, and the like will be irrestistable. They will all do EXACTLY the wrong thing and go on a jihad against pretty much all White men creating its own counter-Jihad Crusade. All that remains is someone to issue the call like Pope Urban II — Victor Orban, Vladimir Putin, perhaps someone we have never even heard of. Even if the call never comes, we will see more and more White dudes figuring they might as well go down Cinematic style as famous than some anonymous victim.

    However, the spread of American fast food franchises all over the world since World War II has demonstrated that there is an insatiable global demand for lousy food out there and the fast food industry is meeting it.

    If you define lousy food as food you don’t like, there’s no question this is true. However, the fact is people slap down cold hard cash for this food and seem to consume it with gusto. Maybe they need a stint in a food gulag where their consumption habits can be unlearned.

    The issue is whether the U.S. Constitution allows state governments to draw a distinction between legal and illegal foreign residents when they are deciding how to spend their limited tax funds.

    As far as I know the federal government deals with all matters of foreign policy and residency. That is why we can afford to have open borders between states.

    The illegally resident parents of the children will still have to pay sales taxes, gasoline taxes, andtelecommunications taxes, and property taxes will be paid on wherever they are residing, so they are taxpayers too. No exemption from taxes for illegal residents.

    Texas has no state income tax.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am all in favor of reducing or eliminating illegal immigration, and perhaps reducing legal immigration and reception of refugees too, although it seems to me that these are three different issues.

    In my opinion punitive laws for anyone who hires an illegal immigrant, along with mandatory E-verify are the way to go and will be much more effective in reducing the number of illegal immigrants than sending out a torrent of tweets on the subject, or digging a ditch full of vipers along the border with Mexico, or a wall with broken glass and razor wire.

    On refugees, the main development nations need to develop a coordinated strategy and set quotas. The US can continue to take whatever number it can comfortably absorb.

    On other legal immigration, I have no objection if it is limited to a much smaller number of high merit people whom the US needs, like physicians and rocket scientists, and to the fiance(e)s, spouses, and family members of US citizens. The lottery can be dropped.

    Trump has been very poorly advised, or just doesn’t have a clue. What was the point of offering an Iron Curtain built by Mexico, if there was no agreement with Mexico that this would be done and no workable plan for a process to achieve this?

    And then asking Congress to pay for the wall? Wouldn’t land mines be easier and cheaper, assuming that the land owners along the frontier were game?

    The only thing that might work would be a media blackout that denied shooters the attention they seek — i.e., to publish a manifesto and go out in “a blaze of glory.”

    An Israeli study of teen suicide bombers concluded that one of the main disincentives to further attacks — especially among young Palestinian women — was the worry that a bomber’s naked flesh would be visible in the aftermath. That was apparently even more horrifying than walking into a pizza parlor where women and children were eating and blowing it up. The authors stated that more could be done to capitalize on such fears of humiliation, including public shaming and exposition of bombers’ remains.

    If that approach has any benefit here, it would be directed at whatever 4chan forums or other such fringe publications put forth the bizarre claim that what these shooters did has helped their cause. Are there any such forums? If you’re looking at “false flag” or entrapment conspiracy theories, that’s where you need to go, but I’m guessing you’re less likely to find the FBI, the Mossad, or Putin-bots there than 14-year-old fans of Heath Ledger’s Joker (“just wanna watch the world burn”) and Bill Burr terrorist-fantasy standup bits.

    I mean, I’ve seen people here (a certain C. M. comes to mind) claim that shooting illegals (including women and children) is morally equivalent to shooting at an “army of invasion”, and therefore morally permissible, but even if I had no scruples about murdering random people who happened to be disproportionately brown (and in this case, weren’t even illegal), I would still be hard pressed as to how anyone could think that this would prevent Hispanics from coming over, given that the odds of getting shot in El Paso is still far lower than in Juarez. So even on a purely Nietzschean level, this simply does not compute.

    There are almost NEVER multiple shooters but some witnesses ALWAYS think that there are multiple shooters. Every single time, and these reports are almost always wrong.

    How do they hallucinate multiple shooters so often? It would be one thing to maybe misjudge the sound of gunfire and assume there is more than one shooter. It’s something else when eyewitnesses report seeing multiple shooters.

    Critics of Mariana Pflaezer’s decison contend (I believe rightly so) that she intentionally dragged out the appeals process so Proposition 187 would never make its way through the courts, since there was a good chance that if it made its way to SCOTUS it would’ve been upheld.

    A bit of a timeline: Proposition 187 passed in November 1994 and Pflaezer issued a permanenet injunction against its implementation in December 1994. She then took all the way till November of 1997 (3 years later!) to delclare it “unconstitutional.” She even used the 1996 Welfare reform Act to justify her 1997 decision, even though she took her first legal actions against Prop. 187’s enactment in 1994, 2 years prior to that actual law’s passage.

    Contrast her actions with those of Judge Susan Bolton, also a Democratic appointee, who declared the key part of AZ’s anti-illegal immgration law SB1070 “unconstitutional” in July 2010 but allowed the appeals process to proceed so that the 9th Circuit started hearing arguments on the case in November of that year. By April 2012 the case was being put before SCOTUS and they ruled in June of that year (a little over 2 years after the bill’s initial passage) that the key part of the law, the so-called “show me your papers” provision requirng police to check the status of individuals whom they suspect are here illegally, constitutional .

    1. Destroy the Evidence
    2. Control the Narrative
    3. Enforce the Law (on anyone looking for evidence to question the narrative).

    Because there’s no legal discovery. Like there wasn’t with the events of 911.

    Because if things go to trial (a real trial) then you have legal discovery and you can ask questions.

    Other so-called “generations” weren’t yet named. Once they were, it was easy to pit them against one another, on paper and in pixels at least. But it’s all slow-news-day “journalism” based on pop marketing research.

    You place a lot of faith in the government, shrinks and leftists in general. Thanks but no thanks.

    I would suggest reading the Gulag Archipelago, all three unabridged volumes. Also spend hundreds of hours training with law enforcement, military (active and retired) and civilian “gun nuts”. This training would include learning the proper gun nomenclature so you won’t give yourself away as not knowing anything about guns or the legal gun owing community. Then spend some time in divorce and family court and see the outrageous lies told and false accusations hurled there at upright men. You will also what to spend time looking at family disputes during probate or trust administration after a death of a person with some means to get a taste of familial nastiness. Finally, if you believe your sanctimonious laws would be applied to anyone but the readers of blogs like this, do I have some New Mexico ocean front property for sale.

    Since you are here at our esteemed host’s blog, I assume you are some what red pilled, so I don’t understand why you place so much faith in a scorpion not to sting you. But, hey we all have our crosses to bear.

    First, post 1965 immigration is unprecedented. You essentially had a nation of 200 million people in 1967 of which around 87 percent were European. And you now have a nation of 330 million heading towards 400 million in which Europeans will be less than 50 percent of the population and dropping. It would be one thing to demographically flip Slovenia which has 2 million. But to flip a nation of 200 million that was so heavily skewed to Europeans is unprecedented given that this was done without open warfare or a massive plague.

    Second, White women were in the middle of the greatest baby boom in US history when the people who envisioned the 1965 Immigration Act began drafting it. Some have made the case that mass immigration of aliens discourages locals from family creation.

    Also, those who push for mass immigration are doing so to change demographics. So whether White women were still having kids at their post WW2 clip or not, they would continue to bring in more and more immigrants.

    Keep in mind the key word here is ‘mass’. Regular immigration brings in a few from time to time who do not materially alter the demographic makeup of a nation. Mass immigration does. And those who pushed for the 1965 Immigration Act and its successors were pushing for mass immigration. So falling White fertility, which is possibly related to mass immigration, only makes them reach their goal sooner. But in the long term we’d still in the same position so long as we don’t demand and end to this madness.

    Yes they have. But do you think he has utilized every tool at his disposal? Even if you support Trump, it is better to be like Ann Coulter and keep his feet to the fire on this issue than to give him a blanket excuse because he is facing resistance.

    Recall during the campaign his appeal was that he was an outsider who had survived the jungle of NYC real estate, one of the toughest business climates anywhere. We were not voting on the outsider who was a naive, hayseed from Iowa. We were voting for the outsider who was a shark. We knew he’d face resistance, but we figured he could deal with it.

    He also has made piss poor personnel decisions and got rolled by the GOP establishment which wasted his early term on a taxcut instead of tackling immigration, health care, or even infrastructure. Yes I know the mandate is gone, but I don’t know if the working class folks in the Great Lakes are happy that there is no alternative. And it looks like they are ones who are going to decide 2020.

    I like the guy, but am disappointed that on the main issue I voted for, he is not giving it his all. Immigration was and is the only issue that really matters. And if he can’t address it now, what makes us think he will address it if he wins another term? He needs to feel the heat from his supporters on this. Blind support will hurt us in the end.

    There do seem to be bizarre coincidences in the reporting, “Cruz” in Florida and “Crusius” in Texas. Dayton is also the name of a town in Texas though that’s not as much of a coincidence as the last names. These weren’t the only familiar names and circumstances and this wasn’t the only incident with erie similarities. Perhaps some fake info gets included to protect the privacy of the victims or even to protect the integrity of the investigation. Or, maybe psychotic types are triggered by superficial similarities like a same-sounding last name?

    The real question is if these are abnormal males who are fragile and reactive or normal males pushed beyond their limits. Of course there are other ways to go crazy…

    “We’re headed for Civil war, only question is when not if, I say within 50 years.”

    I think it will come much more quickly than that. Immigration realists used to talk about the doubling effect and how misleading it is by using the “frog in a lily pond” fable.

    A frog is living in a lily pond in which, every day, the number of lily pads doubles. The frog is ok as long as the lily pads don’t cover the entire surface of the pond, but the minute the entire surface is covered, the frog dies. At first, the growth of the lily pads seems completely innocuous. For days on end, the lily pads are just a few clustered way down at the other end of the pond and the frog imagines this is how it has always been and always will be. It doesn’t really notice the phenomenon of the growth of the lily pads until about 12 percent of the surface is covered. It doesn’t notice the rate of increase in the rate of growth–the acceleration–until 25 percent of the surface is covered. It doesn’t feel alarm at the impending threat until 50 percent of the surface is covered. The next day it is dead.

    These mass shootings, antifa attacks, and all the other red flags are coming fast and furious at this point. Everyone I talk to thinks we have 20, 30, or more years before the shit hits the fan. I believe they are fatally wrong.

Possession of commercial child pornography was once successfully defended in courts as a photographic record of a crime but not any crime in itself. The result was child pornography was being openly sold in many American cities by the mid seventies, especially in New York.

    Referred by whom? For what? Do you want to make psychiatrists gate-keepers of constitutionally protected rights? Pretty soon, every white man will be deemed a potential psychotic.

    My sister herself told me about her Tijuana abortion after I grew up. I was the little brother. The other sister got pregnant too and had the baby — when she was 15. (And, judging from the dates, she had to have been 14 when she did the deed.) My father explained that one to me as it happened, because it was physically obvious at the time. My mother cried years later when she described to me the beautiful baby girl that was immediately put up for adoption.

    I tell the nasty facts instead of leaving them out, because they are true, they tell a story, and because I don’t like them any more than you do. The black comedy aspect of my inclusion of my sister’s Tijuana abortion as a nice, Mexican feature of my SoCal childhood went right over your head.

    From what I watched, the point was to be convincing. The thing is, it’s possible. There are better actors. The EMTs and police could be in on it. The film industry has gotten better and better at making injuries look as realistic as possible so someone with such training could be employed. It would require a large number of people to keep a secret though. But what if you had a crew of 200 people to do this at various locations around the country ? The stuff on the internet can be further faked or computer generated. And any number of observers will inevitably provide false information thereby adding a sort of organic quality to the narrative.

    All I’m saying is that DHS must be busy doing something. And some of what they do may be gauging frustration levels as demonstrated on facebook and the like then faking some worst case scenarios in an effort to diffuse some of the anger by the vicarious experience of someone supposedly doing that very thing. (Isn’t this the function of all those murder mysteries on tv?) Of course I could be the only potential social science type who’d have thought of this strategy if I had a Ph.D. and worked for DHS but I’m true to the breed so maybe I’m on to something.

    What is the appeal of fast food? Most people, even its fans, agree that it is not the best possible food on earth. One of the appeals is price – who else is going sell you a hamburger for a buck nowadays? The 2nd is consistency. You can wander into a Taco Bell anywhere on the planet and you will get roughly the same thing every time. If you patronize the cart of the taco vendor on the nearest street corner, you might get the best damn taco you ever et (and maybe even for cheap) or you might get one helluva case of food poisoning. Lastly, in most (not all cases) you do get speed. There are places that offer one or sometimes more of the attributes of fast food but rarely all of them in the same combination. The fact that so many people all over the globe find fast food appealing is proof of that.

    Your experience at Taco Bell is not typical. As you may know, all fast food franchises have extremely detailed operating requirements – if you are a good franchisee and you are in a good system then careful adherence to the bible will ensure a good customer experience (and will enable someone with no restaurant or business experience to operate a successful franchise and become well off if they put the hard work in). If that restaurant had been operating up to Taco Bell standards (and that’s the whole point – there ARE standards, whereas at Jose’s taco stand it’s all up to Jose) this would not have happened to you. A properly run franchise system is like the military, where you have a whole organization behind you to on the one hand provide you with training and guidance but OTOH to discipline you if you stray from your orders.

    This makes no sense. It is literally impossible to imagine restrictions on video game content or any kind of “art.” You boomers created that environment before I was even born. What does taking responsibility even mean in this context? Your analogy is terrible. The situation facing blacks is not one in which one solution is completely inconceivable due to the actions of previous generations. I specifically responded to your boomer whine with an articulation of why it’s just so much sound and fury. How about taking some responsibility for that? I don’t even play video games they could disappear tomorrow and I wouldn’t notice but again rather than take responsibility for maybe contributing to the modus vivendi you just blamed video games. So much for the whole personal responsibility spiel. Which isn’t surprising when you consider that you are the king of holding Israel to different standards than you hold this country.

    I am very grateful for the fact that my IQ is much higher than average (120s), that my looks are decent enough and I will be able to get a decent job. I’m not ultra-chad pussy slayer by any means, but I will be able to get by. I know alot of white guys though, who fell for the useless uni degree meme. Let me tell you, these guys are going nowhere fast. Their problems are exacerbated by mass immigration, since there’s no guarantee they will even be able to get a McDonald’s job.

    Either way. I’m doing ok. Barely, but I’m getting by. I do feel sympathy for these guys who have nothing and no hope, not even a coherent culture or ethnicity to fit into. I’d love to help them out, if I could. I know there’s some guys like this at church who seem to have found a home.

    It’s depressing to think that 50 or even 30 years ago, somebody like me would be absolutely at the top – I could be making massive amounts of money and getting massive amounts of women. Instead, I’m going to be middle class AND I’LL BE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES.

    You need a culturally conservative revival. You need to reclaim traditional gender roles, which allows men to marry women. You bring back families and end divorces. Stop the negroid, ghetto culture which permeates society. Send these men to church. Even if there are no jobs, get them working – give them a small piece of land to cultivate. In fact all races except Jews, negroes and white liberals agree with this.

    The mixed-ancestry/identity crisis hypothesis may have some merit, given that most Muslim crimes of this sort are the work of second-generation immigrants. The deep south has a relatively homogeneous white population and unless I’m missing something has a relatively low rate of mass shootings, Dylann Roof being the exception that proves the rule. It may simply be the case that second generation Muslims are exceedingly likely to “fail to assimilate” in the same manner as the “loser whites” who make up most mass shooters.

    One of the appeals is price – who else is going sell you a hamburger for a buck nowadays?

    No one. But what I see with fast food is that it is not particularly cheap. That is the whole point. In my area I could go to Golden Corral buffet and get a fairly decent meal with starter, salads, fresh fruit, entree, and unlimited desserts, and a drink with refills for about $10 (OK, I get senior discount), which is about the same as I would pay for a paper bag with a poor quality hamburger, fries, napkins, sachets of ketchup and mustard, and a drink at a fast food drive-in.

    Most people who eat from fast food places are on their 30-minute break from work and want to get something–anything–hot quickly, having failed to bring anything to work made at home that they can microwave in the break room at work.

    A much smaller proportion are people who are traveling by road and need to find somewhere to eat close to a freeway exit and gas station. As you say, standardization means they can more or less tell what they are getting without seeing the food, though prices are anything but standard and may vary quite a bit from place to place.

    Another segment of the market is people trapped in airports where they can choose between going hungry and eating what is available.

    What the fast food corporations do is use their massive capitalization to create a market for the foods that are most profitable for them to sell via advertising on TV and billboards, for example drinks that cost pennies to make that they sell for dollars and various kinds of hot sandwiches with minimal contents. (I could have bought an entire spit-roasted rotisserie chicken today in Walmart for $3.75 and a gallon of undiluted lemonade for the price of a fast food drink which is mostly hollow ice cubes.)

    They also use their financial weight and access to financing to secure all the best commercial sites for restaurants on the most trafficked highways, which makes it difficult for independent restaurateurs to compete.

    So their success and ubiquity has little to do with the quality of the food, or people liking it. Mostly it is propinquity.

    There is a kind of Gresham’s Law in effect in the restaurant world, where lousy food drives out better food.

    Last summer my family and I had a long drive to Fort Lauderdale airport to catch a flight, arriving at the airport in mid evening. We planned to get checked in and then eat at one of the airport restaurants and relax prior to a late evening flight.

    However at 7:30 pm the main restaurant was already closing and refused to serve us and the only food available was execrable hamburgers and fries, some of the worst I have ever had, but sold at premium prices to a captive clientele who would otherwise have to wait until breakfast to eat.

    OK, that was an airport where you expect to get ripped off, but it seemed like a microcosm of the general restaurant scene in the US, where it is increasingly difficult to get a decent bite to eat when you are away from home. You will eat better at a bus station in Haiti than at an American airport or highway exit. You will actually eat better in prison in the US than at a transportation hub.

    And I am NOT a food snob. While I prefer a home cooked meal, I am perfectly happy anywhere I can find a decent meat pie or some chicken stew and beans and rice or plantains, or any kind of meal really.

    Even then it can be hit or miss. Not too long ago I found a little Mexican place in an old industrial town nearby that is going from Italian to Mexican and that night they had barbacoa of lamb as a special and it was honestly the best Mexican food I had ever eaten. The lamb was falling apart tender and delicious. This animal gave its life for a good cause. Then I went back on another night and the beef had been thinly sliced in the Mexican manner and might as well have been shoe leather – Taco Bell would have been better because at least you can chew Taco Bell. This was in the same restaurant, just on two different nights.

    This site uses a more restrictive definition for mass shooting, referring to instances in which a gunman kills at least four randomly chosen individuals, not counting family members or the shooter.

    Detroit television stations, for example, show shootings every week, but they involve gang bangers who settle their differences on a playground, or in a neighborhood, or a bar, or a convenience store. They mostly kill each other, with lots of wounded innocents. I can’t think of any, offhand, that add up to four killed, let alone four randomly selected victims.

    Steve I hope you agree with the FBI that hard right white nationalist terrorism is now the biggest security headache facing the United States.

    LOL. How stupid.

    The biggest security threat to the United States–immediate–is the invasion at the border. If that is not stopped we have defacto open borders.

    The actually security threat is our “cosmopolitan globalist” elite, who spout nonsense like “diversity is our greatest strenght” and openly pine for the demographic overthrow of the US–and the broader West, basically any and all white gentile nations.

    “By definition”–logically–those are the real “security” threats because “security” only has meaning in the context of the security of historical through current populations. The US might exist in some future scenario demographically “diverse” full of all the shithole country immigrants (mostly fleeing Steve’s “World’s Most Important Graph”), or a vassal state run by Chinese after surrender, but those are abject failures of security from the perspective of the historical US nation.

    But beyond simply logic into biology and history, those are the greatest security threats because the West–i.e. the creation of we white gentiles–has been the greatest–most innovative, productive–civilization in world history. In a blowout. The lost of the West–being sold out by these “cosmopolitan globalists”–would be the biggest loss, the biggest crime in world history.

    These anti-borders, anti-white, anti-nationalist cosmopolitan globalists are the enemy of nations, of order, of progress, of civilization. The are truly evil.

    Felix Dzerzhinski wasn’t Jewish. Neither was Nikita Khrushchev, who was Stalin’s point man for taming the Ukraine.

    I freely admit not being historically knowledgeable about the details of the early Soviet period. (I’m not Russian, nor Jewish and not super interested, nor fascinated by Russia.) So i looked it up. The info I read–Dzerzhinsky was a halfie. He wasn’t Jewish by rabbinical law, as it was his dad who was Jewish, his mom some sort of Polish gentry. He certainly wasn’t any sort of practicing Jew, but he doesn’t seem to be alienated culturally either as he spoke Yiddish and married a Jewish girl as his first wife. (That info could be wrong.)

    The broader point was there was very high Jewish participation in the communist leadership of early Soviet Union–formulating its atrocious policies and carrying out its atrocities. Jews can dismiss that and say so-and-so is not a Jew, their mom wasn’t Jewish, their dad wasn’t Jewish, they are an atheist. And it’s certainly true the Jews and half Jews who were communist obviously weren’t the sort of Jews to be going to the synagogue or obeying Jewish law. But that doesn’t negate the high correlation of Jewish ethnic background and communist/subversive/destructive political activity which more conservative and nation preserving gentiles have noticed.

    ~~

    Now some of this is just “baked in”. I would not expect a Jew to care about Russia, Russians, traditional Russian culture or much less Orthodox Christianity the same way a Russian does. I do not expect American Jews to care about America, Americans, traditional American culture or Christianity the way regular Americans do. (Though the sheer zeal of many “American” Jews to destroy those things is pretty freaking remarkable!)

    But those low expectations of minority groups … are precisely the problem with minority groups. Minorities that can not successfully (blacks) or will not (Jews) integrate to the common culture cause trouble.

    Believe it or not, diversity is not actually a strength. It’s a weakness–a fracture–that causes contention and conflict and may break things apart. Minorities should either integrate … or leave. Go back where they came from, form their own state, etc.

    This applies beyond Jews. If you have Mexicans or Chinese or Indians or whomever coming to America and they don’t want to give up their Mexicaness, Chineseness or Indianess and integrate to traditional American norms, traditions and culture … then they are a big problem. Fortunately those groups–perhaps Indians excepted (at least back in their homeland)–don’t have the same prickly endogamy nor the prickly ethno-cultural superiority/attitude. Unfortunately, coming by the millions as they are now, integration becomes harder the sheer numbers creating trouble.

    The Jews have been a particular problem precisely because down through the ages they have been so majority hostile and so resistant to integrating. (Which is why they still exist as a separate tribe.) They like moving anywhere and everywhere to middle man, but have been super-tribal, and refuse to integrate anywhere. And their talent–intelligence, verbosity, drive–makes that an even bigger problem. Hostility plus talent is pernicious combination, great for breaking stuff. And in the early Soviet Union a lot of Jews were eagerly busy breaking stuff.

    If you want to have males not causing trouble they need to be employed and from that employment be able to find a wife and find connection/fulfillment with a family.

    They are much more likely to kill you and the person behind you with a single shot than any pistol. With 30 aimed single shots from an AR 15 anyone can can easily kill a dozen people without them having a chance of rushing him. A world class expert could maybe do that with five revolvers or a couple of ahem automatic pistols.

    Rights do not exist outside a particular society. There are in actuality myriad caveats on what you call a right and you cannot in fact bear arms anywhere public if that firearm is not a concealed pistol. Carrying an AR15 is on the street is now likely to get you instantly shot.
