  1. Finland is the source of truth?

  2. The Suomi word is KAMala.

    A more precise translation is “ghastly,” as in “kamala henkilö,” a ghastly awful person. The connotation is of a grim, grisly specter, someone like Tuoni, the ruler of Tuonela.

    But even Tuonela has its lessons for those who have ears to listen (and many of them are about marrying appropriately).

    https://ferrebeekeeper.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/the-swan-of-tuonela/

    By contrast, KaMALa is Sanskrit for Nelumbo nucifera, the Asian lotus. A highly invasive aquatic plant in the Upper Midwest and elsewhere in the nation.

    Among its properties is destroying habitat for native species through creating thick, choking mats of itself.

    https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Invasives/fact/SacredLotus.html

    It is scouted and monitored, being aggressive. It serves as a host plant for a variety of diseases and invasive creatures that destroy grasses, sorghum, onions (Aspergillus iirc), and chilis (chili thrips being recently introduced to Texas and Florida, and this plant easily colonizing waterways there).

    KaMALa, queen of lotusland, reigned in its courts of law as San Francisco became one of America’s largest outdoor petri dishes and a place decent people do anything to escape. No magic honey, or honeyed words, will save that place.

    She was better than her predecessor Terence Hallinan , 3rd generation communist,and cultural Marxist, son of progressive party presidential candidate Vincent Hallinan. Terence fired around 20 district attorneys few days after he took office and replaced them with pro criminal SJWs who let the black and brown criminals run rampant

    Harris at least knew that the function of a district attorney is to prosecute criminals and put them in prison which keeps crime down.

    Believe me, some of the liberal progressive Whites of San Francisco are far worse than any black or gay politician.

    Remember, Nancy Pelosi’s radicalism was supported by her husband and the entire Pelosi clan. Then there’s Jerry Brown and his block busting pro school bussing crusader for the rights of blacks father Pat Brown.

    I think the major reason Harris was put up to run for DA was even Willie Brown was tired of the lax law enforcement under Hallinan. Another group that we’re all for Harris were the gays. Gay men have a high rate of being victims of street crime by blacks because they are out and about at night more than any demographic.

    John Derbyshire somehow knew that “Lula” is translated as “penis” in Urdu. Googling for that today gave this result:

    https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/deathless-prose-john-derbyshire/

    which suggested that one should type this into Google:

  9. Lol “Horrible Harris”

  10. Try Uzbek: It translates to ‘unimaginable.’

    Bonus: In Xhosa it translates to ‘asleep’ and in Urdu it is ‘slow.’

  11. After clicking on “Publish Comment,” noted the the link provided in the fine post by Orolin which included “beekeeper,” but did not do so in time to add the following which expressed some skepticism about Hillary Clinton’s claim that she was named after Edmund Hillary given that at the time of her birth he was a beekeeper in New Zealand.

    https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/blogs/tim-blair/a-lie-for-every-camera/news-story/1726dcdb4751dee198a3614f8cf41707

    Paddy Fermor’s claim that he recited an entire ode by Horace after its first line (one translation from the Latin -) “See, Soracte’s mighty peak stands deep in virgin snow” was muttered by his captive, General Kreipe seems more credible than Hillary’s.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/charlesmoore/9593267/A-man-so-charming-he-won-over-his-hostage.html

    There is a musical group from Germany named "cologne philharmonic" who go about erstwhile anglo-White-Western towns performing hitherto unheard of classics with a small string ensemble in local Anglican Church halls.

  25. As a general point, one of the problems with made-up names is that the namers may not be aware of the meaning of the name chosen in other languages, or of the existence of English words that are homographs of the same name (spelled the same, but possibly pronounced differently) that may have detrimental meanings, or words that are very similar/

    For example UK fans laughed when Diana Ross named her son Chudney, since that is awfully similar to chutney, which is a popular condiment in the UK, though less so in the US.

    Traitor Reality Winner has an awfully strange name that makes it sound as if she is the real estate salesperson of the month.

    Tonto, the Native American administrative assistant to the Lone Ranger, has a name that means ‘fool’ in Spanish.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple, and while she may have been the apple of their eye, the name is also associated with the Beatles and with the iPhone people.

    Best to stick with Bible names, which are tried and tested, although even then you might come out with kids called Jehosophat (sounds like so fat) or Abednego (sounds like a bad negro).

    Jesus is hardly ever used in the Anglophone world as it is a curse word, but is a common first name in Spanish speaking countries. There are numerous Saint’s names that are also safe choices.

    Another good bet is to use names from classical history or mythology, like Julius, Cleopatra, Diana, Helen, Horace, or Tony, although Brutus seems like a better name for a dog, and Agamemnon has fallen out of favor.

    Names from Shakespeare are also generally safe, the only problem being that they are often associated with tragedy (which itself was a popular girls name in the nineteenth century) and that Goneril is inevitably associated with gonorrhea, so probably not a good choice.

    Ultimately it is up to the child to overcome the handicap of a name and its associations and to redefine the name in their own image. You can be called Dick or Mary, but you don’t have to develop a reputation for being a prick, or contrary or hairy. If you can be called Barack Obama and become President, then any name can be transcended.

    As a general point, one of the problems with made-up names is that the namers may not be aware of the meaning of the name chosen in other languages, or of the existence of English words that are homographs of the same name (spelled the same, but possibly pronounced differently) that may have detrimental meanings, or words that are very similar/

    For example UK fans laughed when Diana Ross named her son Chudney, since that is awfully similar to chutney, which is a popular condiment in the UK, though less so in the US.

    Traitor Reality Winner has an awfully strange name that makes it sound as if she is the real estate salesperson of the month.

    Tonto, the Native American administrative assistant to the Lone Ranger, has a name that means 'fool' in Spanish.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple, and while she may have been the apple of their eye, the name is also associated with the Beatles and with the iPhone people.

    Best to stick with Bible names, which are tried and tested, although even then you might come out with kids called Jehosophat (sounds like so fat) or Abednego (sounds like a bad negro).

    Jesus is hardly ever used in the Anglophone world as it is a curse word, but is a common first name in Spanish speaking countries. There are numerous Saint's names that are also safe choices.

    Another good bet is to use names from classical history or mythology, like Julius, Cleopatra, Diana, Helen, Horace, or Tony, although Brutus seems like a better name for a dog, and Agamemnon has fallen out of favor.

    Names from Shakespeare are also generally safe, the only problem being that they are often associated with tragedy (which itself was a popular girls name in the nineteenth century) and that Goneril is inevitably associated with gonorrhea, so probably not a good choice.

    Ultimately it is up to the child to overcome the handicap of a name and its associations and to redefine the name in their own image. You can be called Dick or Mary, but you don't have to develop a reputation for being a prick, or contrary or hairy. If you can be called Barack Obama and become President, then any name can be transcended.

    She isn’t a “traitor”. She didn’t aid and abet any enemy of the United States. Unless you consider the press to be such – admittedly, not so much of a stretch.

    The Suomi word is KAMala.

    A more precise translation is "ghastly," as in "kamala henkilö," a ghastly awful person. The connotation is of a grim, grisly specter, someone like Tuoni, the ruler of Tuonela.

    But even Tuonela has its lessons for those who have ears to listen (and many of them are about marrying appropriately).

    By contrast, KaMALa is Sanskrit for Nelumbo nucifera, the Asian lotus. A highly invasive aquatic plant in the Upper Midwest and elsewhere in the nation.

    Among its properties is destroying habitat for native species through creating thick, choking mats of itself.

    https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/Invasives/fact/SacredLotus.html

    It is scouted and monitored, being aggressive. It serves as a host plant for a variety of diseases and invasive creatures that destroy grasses, sorghum, onions (Aspergillus iirc), and chilis (chili thrips being recently introduced to Texas and Florida, and this plant easily colonizing waterways there).

    KaMALa, queen of lotusland, reigned in its courts of law as San Francisco became one of America's largest outdoor petri dishes and a place decent people do anything to escape. No magic honey, or honeyed words, will save that place.

    As a general point, one of the problems with made-up names is that the namers may not be aware of the meaning of the name chosen in other languages, or of the existence of English words that are homographs of the same name (spelled the same, but possibly pronounced differently) that may have detrimental meanings, or words that are very similar/

    For example UK fans laughed when Diana Ross named her son Chudney, since that is awfully similar to chutney, which is a popular condiment in the UK, though less so in the US.

    Traitor Reality Winner has an awfully strange name that makes it sound as if she is the real estate salesperson of the month.

    Tonto, the Native American administrative assistant to the Lone Ranger, has a name that means 'fool' in Spanish.

    Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple, and while she may have been the apple of their eye, the name is also associated with the Beatles and with the iPhone people.

    Best to stick with Bible names, which are tried and tested, although even then you might come out with kids called Jehosophat (sounds like so fat) or Abednego (sounds like a bad negro).

    Jesus is hardly ever used in the Anglophone world as it is a curse word, but is a common first name in Spanish speaking countries. There are numerous Saint's names that are also safe choices.

    Another good bet is to use names from classical history or mythology, like Julius, Cleopatra, Diana, Helen, Horace, or Tony, although Brutus seems like a better name for a dog, and Agamemnon has fallen out of favor.

    Names from Shakespeare are also generally safe, the only problem being that they are often associated with tragedy (which itself was a popular girls name in the nineteenth century) and that Goneril is inevitably associated with gonorrhea, so probably not a good choice.

    Ultimately it is up to the child to overcome the handicap of a name and its associations and to redefine the name in their own image. You can be called Dick or Mary, but you don't have to develop a reputation for being a prick, or contrary or hairy. If you can be called Barack Obama and become President, then any name can be transcended.

    Another good bet is to use names from classical history or mythology, like Julius, Cleopatra, Diana, Helen, Horace, or Tony, although Brutus seems like a better name for a dog, and Agamemnon has fallen out of favor.

    John Derbyshire somehow knew that "Lula" is translated as "penis" in Urdu. Googling for that today gave this result:

    https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/deathless-prose-john-derbyshire/

    which suggested that one should type this into Google:
    “lula penis urdu derbyshire"

    However, that now fails to deliver the promised result from the archives of "The Corner."

  51. OT the Foreign Policy establishment, neocon or otherwise, makes no sense if you look through ideological or national lenses.

    However once you view them as essentially rival factions within dynasties operating to maximize dynastic advantage. Obama and his dynastic team figured Iran was just awesome since they stuck it to Israel and especially Bibi, Israel being a bad and encouraging example to White people of a White ethnostate. Shut it down indeed. The Intel Holdovers thus like Iran because it threatens the one big example of a White ethnostate.

    At the same time they are opposed to Russia, while backing Iran and both are partners in the Syrian adventure.

    The Obama faction wants us to fight Russia in Syria (because its another White ethnostate sort of and a bad example) but not its partner Iran. While letting China run rampant because it pays off their dynasty starting with the Clintons and Charlie Trie.

    Trump seems to view Russia as not much of a threat, and an opportunity like North Korea to peel off an ally of China. [Trump seems to have been burned in some business deal with China and this likely explains much of his animosity.] By contrast he views Iran as a threat to Saudi Arabia and semi affordable oil, seeming to be skeptical of shale oil’s ability to produce without super cheap loans and low interest rates.

    Trump alone seems to have a nationalist American view of things, the others are international dynasts akin to the Middle Ages, not 20th Century people at all but 11th Century if that. As such seemingly contradictory policies are explained by dynastic interests of which dynasty is getting paid or sees advantage to their dynasty.

    (Too Long To Read -but what the hell, iSteve seems a little quiet at the moment)

    As Hodag wrote, “The things you remember.” Found a link which (I think – AOL crashes here with iSteve unz) confirms that John Derbyshire (fellow Geezer Signaling) wrote that a Finnish extrovert is someone who stares at *your* shoes.
    http://www.unz.com/isteve/for-my-finnish-readers/

    Some time ago was unable to find on a brief search some desired returns for a very vaguely recalled old medical term, (probably not in widespread use) “Finnish schizophrenia.”

    FWIW (almost nothing) My 23andMe report suggests a whopping “0.9%” Finnish ancestry.

    A very brief search for a possibly inaccurate recollection of some report regarding dug up skulls which once belonged to Minnesota women of Finnish descent – which asserted that said skulls were unusually “robust” for females was unsuccessful, but dug up this:

    http://facialdepiction.com/facial-reconstruction-on-a-kaldamaki-skull/

    I watch way too much cable teevee and there was recently some speculation regarding how the historical Jesus might have looked. Some Jewish skulls from the Roman era were, again if memory serves, described as “robust” or words to that effect.

    Below is a paste of a screen for a link which demanded “membership” on the site to enter (opted to decline):

    “Casting Jesus in films, costume & historical errors – Page 3 …
    http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message716829/pg3
    Feb 5, 2009 – 30 posts – ‎1 author
    … Hollywood would hire another thin face which is the opposite of the actual wider, heavier and morerobust Jewish skulls of ancient times.”

    Don’t think I got around to actually posting (probably on a “Cleopatra” thread) something with facial reconstruction of a Caucasoid woman from Asia(?) who might have had some “Amazonian” behavior in her horse-nomad tribe.

    Calipers on human skulls seems more than a little “creepy” for, among other reasons, its use by Nazis. However, skull measurements were apparently a big deal many years ago (before DNA analysis) for a number of researchers who were not “Aryan supremacists.”

    – think that have already posted some clumsy prose about the howler from “Die Hard” where a television talking head speaks of the “Helsinki syndrome” – rather than, of course, the “Stockholm Syndrome.”

    Having gone on too long, might as well throw some worse money after bad with something not inflicted yesterday:

    Elias Lönnrot would not agree that Kalevala is tasteless in translation.

    Only fossils use AOL and “Lönnrot”prompts a spell check, but “Kalevala” does not.
    Does anyone have the impression that spell-checkers have improved in recent years?”

    (should disclose that I’m only aware that Finland even *has*
    a national epic as a result of haunting another website over a decade ago)

    Federal judges on Friday ordered California to launch a new parole program that could free more prisoners early, ruling the state had failed to fully implement an order last February intended to reduce unconstitutional crowding.

    “The record contains no evidence that defendants cannot implement the required parole process by that date, 11 months after they agreed to do so ‘promptly,’” the judges wrote in Friday’s order.
    Corrections department spokeswoman Deborah Hoffman said the agency would comply with the order.

    Most of those prisoners now work as groundskeepers, janitors and in prison kitchens, with wages that range from 8 cents to 37 cents per hour. Lawyers for Attorney General Kamala Harris had argued in court that if forced to release these inmates early, prisons would lose an important labor pool.

    Turns out half-Tamil half-Jamaican Harris is a slaver too, though she denied direct knowledge that her office was advocating for slave labour.

    There is a musical group from Germany named “cologne philharmonic” who go about erstwhile anglo-White-Western towns performing hitherto unheard of classics with a small string ensemble in local Anglican Church halls.
