King of Queens Joe Crowley is a 9-term Democratic Congressman from Queens who was seen as a successor to Nancy Pelosi whenever it is that her era finally grinds to a halt. But tonight he got smashed in the Democratic primary by a pretty young Puerto Rican socialist lady running on a platform of free handouts and open borders (what could possibly go wrong?)

From The Intercept:

JOE CROWLEY COMPLAINS HIS PRIMARY OPPONENT, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ IS MAKING THIS RACE “ABOUT RACE”

Ryan Grim
June 9 2018, 5:00 a.m.

ON A WARM SUNDAY evening in Queens, New York, Joe Crowley stood before a group of about two dozen Democratic activists and made his case for why he should be returned to Congress for a 10th term. In his view, it was “destiny.”

“I was born for this role,” Crowley said at the May 20 meet-and-greet. Like President Donald Trump, he was born in Queens, though in entirely different circumstances. Trump came from great wealth and privilege, Crowley observed, while the congressperson was born to a family of Irish immigrants — the son of a police officer. Crowley is routinely floated as next in line to be the leader of the House Democrats if Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California steps aside or is ousted. “He was trying to say that me being a guy from the same place [Trump] is from, I’m the guy to take him on,” said Andy Aujla, who hosted the event at his home. …

If Crowley positions himself as a photo negative of the president, Ocasio-Cortez is a different medium altogether. A 28-year-old woman and daughter to a Puerto Rican mother and Bronx father, Ocasio-Cortez’s most notable novelty is arguably not her demographic profile, but her policy profile. She calls for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),

Of course, nobody is calling for Open Borders, the new Democratic star is just calling for abolishing border enforcement.

Medicare for All, tuition-free public college, a federal jobs guarantee, and criminal justice reform “now.” “It doesn’t take 100 years to do this,” she intones in a viral campaign video. “It takes political courage.”

And a whole lot of other people’s tax payments.

Crowley, though, when he talked about the campaign, shared his frustration over what he perceives to be an inordinate focus on ethnicity.

His opponent, he said, was trying to make the campaign “about race” — a strategy he called “unnecessarily divisive” at a time when the party needed to be “fighting Republicans, not other Democrats,” according to two people at the gathering. …

He said he didn’t recall Crowley making any comments about his own race being a hinderance [sic] in the campaign.

All Democrats know that White Privilege means that being a white in a mostly nonwhite election can’t possibly be a hindrance. It’s a law of nature or of math or something. Only racists would say something like that. The fact that only 18% of the residents of NY14 were white in the 2010 Census just proves that White Privilege Something Something.

But of course, for all you white Democrats out there, there’s nothing to worry about. Crowley didn’t lose because he’s white, he lost because he’s, uh, a loser. Your white children have nothing to worry about regarding the New Improved Democratic Party of the Future. Nothing!

(Ocasio-Cortez is a former organizer for Bernie Sanders’s 2016 campaign and has been endorsed by Sanders-affiliated groups Our Revolution and People for Bernie Sanders, as well as the Democratic Socialists of America.)

Most of those at the event were white or white-presenting

As America’s greatest philosopher would say, they’re “people who believe they are white.”

, Haby said, and he found Crowley’s defense that he couldn’t “help” being born white, coupled with his claims of being “destined” for leadership, odd and off-putting.

The source who originally tipped The Intercept off to Crowley’s alleged remarks in the days following the event was similarly troubled by Crowley’s comments on race. “It just felt really weird and not appropriate,” he explained.

The disgusting white man’s disgusting comments are disgusting, they just are. After all, Rep. Joe Crowley is a white male. And what more need be said?

THE IRONY THAT Crowley laments how he “can’t help” being white, while ignoring the political advantages he inherited, is not lost on Ocasio-Cortez.

After all, as America’s greatest genius has explained, time flows backwards, so it’s more important to think about events long ago than what is happening right now.

“The congressman could have helped that he accepted inheritance of his seat from a multigenerational political dynasty without a true primary — a process by which people of color are historically locked out of representation. The congressman could help that he voted to establish ICE. The congressman can help the fact that he accepts money from developers that are displacing our communities and the folks criminalizing our backyards,” she told The Intercept.

“Additionally, why is it that the congressman can proudly discuss his Irish heritage on the campaign trail, but I am somehow barred from mentioning my Puerto Rican family?” …

Haby is a board member of the Lesbian & Gay Democratic Club of Queens and a member of Stonewall Democrats. …

The LGDCQ later endorsed Crowley, though Ocasio-Cortez did not compete for their backing.

So, while Mexicans haven’t accomplished as much as expected politically in California and Texas, various Caribbean Hispanics have been doing pretty well on the Eastern Seaboard.

From an interview with the winner in In These Times:

KA: Speaking of some of those issues, you’ve come out in support of abolishing ICE. Could you say why that’s important to folks in your district?

AOC: NY-14 is 50 percent immigrant, including naturalized U.S. citizens and undocumented people. Immigration is a top three issue in our community because it speaks directly to the stability of working families here. When I’m advocating for a working-class agenda, for the safety and security of working-class people, it means healthcare, housing and immigration. They’re issues of, “Can I stay here tomorrow?”

If there is any seat in America that is advocating for the abolishment of ICE it should be NY14. It is a district that is 85 percent Democratic. We have very little to risk by taking bold and ambitious positions. Even for those who aren’t immigrants, we are all so deeply invested in the lives and the future of immigrant families in NY-14, and everybody here cares about this issue.

Everybody in NY14 cares about Mexican illegal immigrants! Except for the Puerto Ricans who have Open Borders. And the Cubans who have their dry foot-wet foot deal. And the Asians who are here on that investor visa deal. And the Mauritians who are here on Sen. Kennedy’s Diversity Visa boondoggle. But other than all the non-Mexicans, everybody here cares about the Mexicans.

    Can you get a DVD or BR copy of Fast Times with the original theatrical music soundtrack now? At least in the past, they always replaced the music with other, and less good, selections because when they signed contracts for the music in the theatrical release, the license didn't include home media releases, and when they went back to negotiate the musicians' agents tried to ram it up their nether parts on license fees, so they subbed the music. The changes ruin the film for anyone who remembers it as shown in a real cinema of the time.

    NY insurgent who said ‘Dems can’t be silent anymore’ about Palestine clips AIPAC poodle in primary shocker
    http://mondoweiss.net/2018/06/insurgent-anymore-palestinian/

    There is only one political story today, the defeat of Democratic Party stalwart Joseph Crowley by insurgent socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, in a congressional district in the Bronx and Queens. The news has reverberations for our issue, U.S. policy in the Middle East. Ocasio-Cortez has called on the party to end its silence on Palestinian human rights.

    Here is Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet from the May 14 massacre on the Gaza border, when Israel killed 62 Palestinian protesters even as the U.S. moved the embassy:

    This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.

    Crowley had supported the move of the embassy to Jerusalem, which detonated the killings, and catered to the Israel lobby group AIPAC. He is the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, a ten-term congressman, the personification of the old guard. The party establishment has been wed to support for Israel even as the forces that Ocasio-Cortez represents, younger and more diverse, have demanded greater backing for Palestinian human rights.

    Haaretz has more of the story:.....

    Of course he is not getting it. Not until they were tossed into prison, or even executed, did the Old Bolsheviks get it that the revolution they brought about would devour them too. They just assumed that their lives would be filled with destroying the lives of the hated devoutly Orthodox or Catholic, the conservative in culture or politics or economics.

    In the USSR, when the hammer finally fell on a few Jews, with Trotsky the most prominent, all Jews were shocked. After all, they knew that the revolution was about destroying Christians and politically/culturally conservative and moderate Gentiles. It was their revolution against Christendom, and they were supposed to be the devourers, never the devoured, the torturers, never the tortured.

    The most important way to discern Neoconservatism is that it is an attempt by Jews to revive all the merciless fury of Bolshevism and make it so that Jews cannot get tossed into the fire at any point. And that was done by integrating fully into the heart of power of WASP Empire, which was easy as pie because WASP culture was born of a Judaizing heresy: Anglo-Saxon Puritanism. Judaizing heresy always produces pro-Jewish politics and culture which also necessarily must hate unto death all white cultures that have not been bitten hard by the revolutionary bug.

    Poor Crowley, though, is not Jewish. He is most expendable. As is Pelosi.

    The phrase I've been using a lot:

    Where I come from, the Republicans puffed themselves as the Business party. But since the Voodoo Economics of the 1980s all I've seen them specialize in is patronage and cuckery (Jeb!), while the Dems flog mob power thru demographics even while run by globalist billionaires (Her Turn!), and the socialists and libertarians specialize in bong haze (Bernie!/dude weed lmao).

    Having said that, I want to know something. Is this Queens lady a (((bolshie))) socialist?

    Or a socialist more like the good old anti-communist Mick mackerel-snapping/"liberation theology" socialist Queens boy Michael Harrington?

    Not that Mike's spreadsheets were very good. But he recognized and admitted as much. And he was one fierce SOB for calling out the Neocons. I sometimes wonder what he'd think of /pol/ on the JQ. Seemed to me at the time he was bumping up on it...but political and social views, like berries, need time and the right combination of heat and cool to ripen. Plus he was Jezzie-trained, and what that supplies in argumentation skills it counterbalances with certain blind spots.

    Most of the radical left wing democrats have their roots in the Irish American community. These old white guys like Crowley vote more left wing than his Marxist successor. They do as exactly as they are told by he party leaders. Most of them went to catholic school but they vote for all the anti life and anti family issues that their party pushes. It will not be long before the Irish American whiskey drinkers are replaced in the big cities by the people they champion. It is a good schadenfreude to see these old white haired crooks thrown on the trash heap as history passes them and be replaced by the new Americans that they have brought into the country. Joe Biden the leader of the old white headed Irish perverts really thinks that he has a chance to be elected president, har har what a moron!

    The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats’ plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

    For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

    I know that securing the border all seems pretty hopeless right now, with 100% of Democratic politicians in favor of erasing our borders. But a few more victories by wise young Latinas over tired old white guys like Crowley and perhaps a few Democrats will start to come around. After all, they’re doing their best to pander to the Hispanic vote and it ain’t doing them a who lot of good. Crowley’s NumbersUSA grade is an F-.

    Forget race Wilkey! what do you have to say for yourself politically, ideologically? whose die you on the rich..or on the side of life?

    Methinks that where you stand and your sincerity would have an whole lot to do with your political potential out there these days. the room for racist politics, flim flam and money politics disappearing in late stage capitalism.

    for the ordinary, the poor, the middle etc. life standard is falling. the choice now is a way that allows the majority to live and move forward..or die. that's the choice of late stage capitalism. the impression I have is that any politician who adresses the questions of survival in the stage we have arrived, sincerely from the angle of the people will do well regardless of ethnicity.

    Bernie Sanders did powerfully well..and to be crass, he is a Jew with white skin.

    you missed the bus Wilkey..but there are others coming, going in that same direction. line up and catch the next one.

    it is not a race issue basically. it never was though by the white skin you could get ahead on that alone. now all ordinary people are being killed, culled. white skin color is no longer protection. just as many whites catch police bullets. whites eat more or as much GMO food than colored..they have more money for the supermarkets. and its the same with opium/Opioids.

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    Woodside Queens, where Crowley supposedly lived, was for a long time far and away the most Irish neighborhood in the city (apparently around 80% in the 1930s). Go there today and its a mix of East Asians, South Americans and people from the Indian subcontinent although there is still a much truncated Irish presence left over from immigrants who came over in the 80s and early 90s.

    I don't understand why someone like this is allowed in the press briefings. It's one thing to be a fearless and tough journalist. It's another thing to insult people and brag about it. It shouldn't be hard or controversial to require journalists to remain civil in order to keep their press passes.

    Also, how is it not true that Democrats don't want open borders? I legitimately don't think it's tenable to claim that the Democrat establishment is objectively in favor of open borders even if few if any of them have come out and explicitly said that.

    The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats' plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

    For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

Several instances of one group recruiting a foreign force to put down their rivals resulted in that foreign force taking over the nation.

    In this case white democrats are bringing in foreign voters to tilt the political battle against the bad whites. But doing so opens up their party, and probably the nation, to a hostile takeover. It’s ironic Crowley is Irish. You’d think he would have learned from his ancestor’s mistake.

  29. Crowley won three terms (6 years) from his district. If his constituents were that fanatically anti-white, how did he get elected to begin with?

    It appears that Crowley skipped both primary debates. See below.

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/6/26/17506970/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-joe-crowley-primary-new-york

    She had some help from a major Crowley misstep — he sent a surrogate to a primary debate, which led to a scathing editorial from the New York Times. “This is the second primary debate in which Mr. Crowley was a no-show. A spokeswoman for Mr. Crowley said he had scheduling conflicts that wouldn’t allow him to attend the two debates, inevitably leaving voters to wonder — what are we, chopped liver?” the editorial read.

    It’s pretty remarkable that he would skip his own primary debates.

    His children didn’t go to school in the district. According to one local paper, even he didn’t actually live in his own district (he disputes this).

    I’ll add one final point. He was a moderate Democrat with strong ties to Wall Street and the real estate industry. She started her career as a hard-left community organizer. Which individual is likely more in touch with the district’s constituents?

  32. All Democrats know that White Privilege means that being a white in a mostly nonwhite election can’t possibly be a hindrance. It’s a law of nature or of math or something. Only racists would say something like that. The fact that only 18% of the residents of NY14 were white in the 2010 Census just proves that White Privilege Something Something.

    If being White was such an extreme disadvantage, how exactly did he get elected three times previously?

    He was commonly name-checked as the 3rd or 4th most powerful Democrat in the House, and on the short list to be speaker or minority leader. Nobody with a functioning brainstem votes against that kind of power to bring the pork to the home district. My guess is that instead of following the example of Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd and bringing home the bacon, Crowley aped the unlamented Great White Whale of Hyannisport and was more focused on saving the world instead of his district...without the backing of the Kennedy political apparatus.

    If Crowley has the sense of an old New York pol, he’ll get on the ballot as an independent, then grease a few palms. Hispanics have terrible turnout. That, plus the usual Democrat ballot box stuffing, could still give him the victory. I imagine the old-line Dems are beginning to get both nervous and angry about the young Turks in their own party, and Dems being Dems, it’s going to get ugly.

    There’s nothing nastier or more vicious than an old Dem determined to cling to power. (See Hillary Clinton for an example).

    Its not just white voters that will be leaving the Democrats soon. Their large donors are the ones that will spook first.

    One of the under-reported revelations of Donna Brazil's book was that the reason the Democrats had to fix the primaries so early was because it was the only way they could secure the backing of their (((wealthy donors))). The rules maxing contributions at $2,500 per donor (or whatever it is) per candidate it put them in a position where the overflow had to funnel its way through the Democratic Party. They are far more reliant on mega donors and there was no way many of them would give anything to the Democrats if there was a chance that Bernie Sanders and the rabble he represented might get into power. Ironically, we could easily have had a President Sanders had it been a fair fight.

    In the future, look for the rules in the Democratic Party to get rid of the super delegates, even out the funding, and making things more transparent. All that will do, is hasten the exit of elites from the party. What the Democrats really need is a openly pro-Palestine candidate to win. That's next.

    As I recall, we spent something like $5 trillion looking for nonexistent “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq. If she wants to spend a tiny fraction of that sum in providing healthcare to her own constituents, that might not be totally insane.

    Everybody in NY14 cares about Mexican illegal immigrants! Except for the Puerto Ricans who have Open Borders. And the Cubans who have their dry foot-wet foot deal. And the Asians who are here on that investor visa deal. And the Mauritians who are here on Sen. Kennedy’s Diversity Visa boondoggle. But other than all the non-Mexicans, everybody here cares about the Mexicans.

    So, while Mexicans haven’t accomplished as much as expected politically in California and Texas, various Caribbean Hispanics have been doing pretty well on the Eastern Seaboard.

    Glass-Steagall created modern investment banking. Your nth-generation Huey Long notion of "sticking it to the fatcats" won't be realized by winding all financial regulations back to 1935. "Clean Campaign Finance," what is that? Letting billionaires who are owners of newspapers electioneer, but stomping on business owners who make packaging products or commercial upholstery fabrics? Let me guess, you also think there is "too much money in politics" i.e. too much competition every election for the incumbent Congressman-For-Life party-hack seatholders

    Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
    Sailed off in a wooden shoe —
    Sailed on a river of crystal light,
    Into a sea of dew.
    “Where are you going, and what do you wish?”
    The old moon asked the three.
    “We have come to fish for the herring fish
    That live in this beautiful sea;
    Nets of silver and gold have we!”
    Said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

    The old moon laughed and sang a song,
    As they rocked in the wooden shoe,
    And the wind that sped them all night long
    Ruffled the waves of dew.
    The little stars were the herring fish
    That lived in that beautiful sea —
    “Now cast your nets wherever you wish —
    Never afraid are we”;
    So cried the stars to the fishermen three:
    Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

    All night long their nets they threw
    To the stars in the twinkling foam —
    Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe,
    Bringing the fishermen home;
    ‘Twas all so pretty a sail
    it seemed
    As if it could not be,
    And some folks thought ’twas a dream they’d dreamed
    Of sailing that beautiful sea —
    But I shall name you the fishermen three:
    Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.

    Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes,
    And Nod is a little head,
    And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies
    Is a wee one’s trundle-bed.
    So shut your eyes while mother sings
    Of wonderful sights that be,
    And you shall see the beautiful things
    As you rock in the misty sea,
    Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:
    Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.[2]

    s'truth, but doesn't matter much: the Grand Old Peds will in any case toddle along in the Dems leftward wake, as they have for the past three decades. They'll do it because they think that the Whites have no place else to go.

    and the Whites will comply: voting themselves into extinction just as surely by voting Republiscam as voting Demoncrat.

    All Democrats know that White Privilege means that being a white in a mostly nonwhite election can’t possibly be a hindrance. It’s a law of nature or of math or something. Only racists would say something like that. The fact that only 18% of the residents of NY14 were white in the 2010 Census just proves that White Privilege Something Something.

     

    If being White was such an extreme disadvantage, how exactly did he get elected three times previously?

    But of course, for all you white Democrats out there, there’s nothing to worry about. Crowley didn’t lose because he’s white, he lost because he’s, uh, a loser. Your white children have nothing to worry about regarding the New Improved Democratic Party of the Future. Nothing!

     

    He skipped both primary debates. He was in tight with Wall Street and the real estate developers. He didn't send his kids to school in his own district (and may not even have lived there). Do you think that, perhaps, he was slightly out of touch with constituents? Perhaps these constituents felt he was taking them for granted?

    Do you think that, perhaps, he was slightly out of touch with constituents?

    I am not so sure of that. I read a couple months back that 1/3 of Hillary voters were white working class as opposed to a little over 1/4 of her voters being white, college educated.

    Of the 40 percent of whites who still vote D, I'm guessing 1 in 4 are hard core believers in the cult marx stuff. But I would think half of the whites who vote D don't fit into this category. Anecdotally I have met a few where I live in Missouri. Many democrats here are democrats out of tradition. They still think the democrats are the party of Harry Truman who look out for the working man. The GOP is associated with rich guys at golf clubs. There is still a bit a truth to the latter, but the former is no longer true.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.

    The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats' plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

    For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

    I know that securing the border all seems pretty hopeless right now, with 100% of Democratic politicians in favor of erasing our borders. But a few more victories by wise young Latinas over tired old white guys like Crowley and perhaps a few Democrats will start to come around. After all, they're doing their best to pander to the Hispanic vote and it ain't doing them a who lot of good. Crowley's NumbersUSA grade is an F-.

Although, you're point is a valid one--the fact is, white women largely voted to give us the mantle of "people of color"...and we took it and ran with it. Including Affirmative Action (for legals and illegals who come from Latin American countries that have NO history of oppression from white Americans)

    ICE is interior immigration enforcement. CBP is border enforcement. Then there's CIS for naturalization and the like. Things were simpler pre 9/11.

    But, yeah, in theory you could eliminate ICE without much chaos, since CBP would have border to 100 miles inland jurisdiction. That's why the proposal is so chilling. It's not as crazy as it might at first appear. There'd be a race to the inland from the border for illegals. I'm sure you'd have some kind of underground railroad developing.

    I think it was John Durant who put it this way — it’s much healthier for a living organism to secure its borders (cell walls, skin) than it is to secure its interior (immune system and potential autoimmune disease).

    Trump should negotiate a deal with Zimbabwe to deliver Central American migrants to that country as laborers. The Zimbabwe economy has completely imploded, and is in desperate need of the miraculous economic boost that is available only from importation of unskilled Latin-American labor (doing the jobs Africans won’t do). Out of humanitarianism, the United States would agree to foot the entire transportation cost and salary (12 trillion Mugollars, or $37.50 American) of any migrant who signed up for the deal. It’s a massive win-win. Zimbabwe gets an instant jump to the top of the world economic standings, and the Central Americans get good jobs and opportunities for their children, plus the advantages of living in a country completely free of racist oppression (at 99.998% black, Zimbabwe is one of the most diverse countries in the world).

    In a way what might be happening to white democrats is what has happened to others in history who have brought in foreign mercenaries to deal with their local opponents. Several instances of one group recruiting a foreign force to put down their rivals resulted in that foreign force taking over the nation.

    In this case white democrats are bringing in foreign voters to tilt the political battle against the bad whites. But doing so opens up their party, and probably the nation, to a hostile takeover. It's ironic Crowley is Irish. You'd think he would have learned from his ancestor's mistake.

    Smart comment, iStevefan. A modern take on Hengist and Horsa.

    In a way what might be happening to white democrats is what has happened to others in history who have brought in foreign mercenaries to deal with their local opponents. Several instances of one group recruiting a foreign force to put down their rivals resulted in that foreign force taking over the nation.

    In this case white democrats are bringing in foreign voters to tilt the political battle against the bad whites. But doing so opens up their party, and probably the nation, to a hostile takeover. It's ironic Crowley is Irish. You'd think he would have learned from his ancestor's mistake.

    Many Indians helped the Whites go after other Indians who had been their lifelong enemies.

    Oh boy! I understand all these things are about other people’s money. Puerto Rico plan takes the prize in its naked shamelessness:

     

    So "Curb Wall Street Gambling: Restore Glass Steagall" is "shameless"?

    "Clean Campaign Finance" is "shameless"?

    The funny thing here is that a large fraction of the posters here never talk about "other people's money" when the issue is emptying the national treasury into the pockets of defense contractors or corporations who want subsidies. Suddenly, everybody becomes a fiscal hawk when she mentions "Medicare For All."

    By the way, who do you think benefits from "Medicare For All"? The fact is that 43% of Medicaid recipients are non-Hispanic white. So if "Medicare For All" passed, close to half the people benefting would be White.

    I'd bet a substantial fraction of the posters here have been (or will be at some point) on Medicaid and could benefit from such a program. To hear some of the people here talk, you'd think 90% of Medicaid recipients were NAMs........

    By the way, some of the above proposals might save money. For example, the U.S. healthcare system is enormously expensive (an issue that few posters here ever speak about). "Medicare For All" is an attempt to reign in costs through mass-scale negotiating. Ending "private prisons" (which often are enormous give aways to connected contractors) is another attempt to reign in costs.

    Which isn't to say she'll be a particularly good representative or that her ideas are amazing. Mostly I'm just saying that she's not as insane or irresponsible as some people here make her out to be. By the standards of American politicians, she's not that far out of the mainstream.

    Her campaign slogan was literally “It’s Time For One of US” and used the hashtag #ONEOFUS.

    Crowley lost Archie Bunker's Old Neighborhood. Archie Bunker's fictional Astoria address was in New York’s 14th Congressional District . The houses that were shown in the opening credits of the show; however, were actually in Glendale, Queens.

    She also made a lot of hay about the fact (I can’t confirm with a really good source, but she said it a lot) that Crowley apparently doesn’t live in the district. So “One of Us” was a deniable dogwhistle.

    Ah, I understand it now. He, like a lot of Congresscritters, lives in northern Virginia. He has a Queens residence for voting, but his kids go to school in ARlington, VA, his car is registered in VA, his house is in VA.

  70. Some cold water on how big a deal this is:

    According to Vox, the totals were:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 15,897 57%
    Joseph Crowley 11,761 42%

    New York State has insanely onerous regulations on who can vote in primaries and who can get on the ballot. It’s all inherited from the old Tammany machines and hasn’t been updated–your petitions have to have a certain number of valid signatures from each Election District, your petition carriers have to live in such-and-such a district, the papers have to be stapled in a certain way.

    Ocasio-Cortez was a Sanders organizer in 2015-16, and learned firsthand how jacked up the NYS election laws are, and got experience at navigating that minefield and registering voters.

    So you have a hungry Young Turk registering new voters, and a machine hack looking at the pros-and-cons of challenging Nancy Pelosi for the Speakership after the Democrats win a House majority. Skipping primary debates? Jeebus. Nobody watches them, so the only way to lose is to not show up so that your challenger can use that as a talking point.

    Ocasio-Cortez is the shape of things to come in the Democratic Party, but the future is still a few election cycles off. The white Democratic gerontocracy will erode away, rather than collapsing all at once.

    Actually it is pretty big.......all politics is local (for most voters) so this Dem establishment upset could happen across the country.

    Crowley raised and spent 3,350,000 Cortez raised and spent 300,000. 3/4 of her donations from small donors 1/4 from large donors.
    She got nothing from the DNC and not even any endorsements from others dems.

    She also broke the Israel/ Jew taboo

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) May 14, 2018

    ''Israeli army’s actions on the Gaza border on May 14, “This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.”

    One of my considerations for this new kind of millennial candidate would be.....do I want to give Israel 38 billion or would I rather spend it on first generation American immigrants like Cortez's group since they aren't going to be leaving anyway and on American infrastructure.

    The call for open borders doesn't bother me cause the opposition cat is out of the box and isn't going back in despite what liberals or illegals or one world socialist clamber for.

    ICE is interior immigration enforcement. CBP is border enforcement. Then there's CIS for naturalization and the like. Things were simpler pre 9/11.

    But, yeah, in theory you could eliminate ICE without much chaos, since CBP would have border to 100 miles inland jurisdiction. That's why the proposal is so chilling. It's not as crazy as it might at first appear. There'd be a race to the inland from the border for illegals. I'm sure you'd have some kind of underground railroad developing.

    There already is a race to move farfr the border by the invaders, to avoid the border patrol and its much greater authority closer to the border. This phenomenon (inter alia is why, for example, Los Angeles is crawling with invading parasites whereas San Diego is relatively much less infested by them. Lawyers specializing in immigration actually tell illegal aliens traveling intranationally to avoid states with borders. “Want to go to Nebraska Tennessee? Okay. Texas or Maine? Better think about that one…..”

    This election should not be a surprise. Bernie Sanders was a contender that was wiped out by the establishment DNC Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her ilk to support Hillary Clinton. The Sander’s platform is a product that left leaning voters would happily buy. The problem for them is that if this collection of far left policy positions becomes the defacto Democratic platform, I don’t believe they can control all the branches of government inthe near future.

    It is the final undoing of the Clinton triangulation where the Dems completely sold out their traditional allies. Ultimately, financial interests will find a way to undermine them.

    Somehow, I don't think this is going to turn out well.

    Here is one:

    The Norman invasion of Ireland took place in stages during the late 12th century, at a time when Gaelic Ireland was made up of several kingdoms, with a High King claiming lordship over all.

    In May 1169, Cambro-Norman mercenaries landed in Ireland at the request of Diarmait Mac Murchada (Dermot MacMurragh), the ousted King of Leinster, who had sought their help in regaining his kingdom. Diarmait and the Normans seized Leinster within weeks and launched raids into neighbouring kingdoms.
    ...

    The Norman invasion was a watershed in the history of Ireland, marking the beginning of more than 800 years of direct English and, later, British involvement in Ireland.

    If there's any place where white people are welcome, they want it destroyed.

    Most white Democrats love the idea that white people aren’t welcome.

    I am not so sure of that. I read a couple months back that 1/3 of Hillary voters were white working class as opposed to a little over 1/4 of her voters being white, college educated.

    Of the 40 percent of whites who still vote D, I’m guessing 1 in 4 are hard core believers in the cult marx stuff. But I would think half of the whites who vote D don’t fit into this category. Anecdotally I have met a few where I live in Missouri. Many democrats here are democrats out of tradition. They still think the democrats are the party of Harry Truman who look out for the working man. The GOP is associated with rich guys at golf clubs. There is still a bit a truth to the latter, but the former is no longer true.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.

    Perhaps because I’ve been frequenting this site for so long, the above observation seems absolutely obvious to me. It’s not just about the macro level of political parties, but about the disaggregation of the old Cold War political coalitions, and their recombination into something new; the idea that a person you considered an adversary yesterday may be an ally tomorrow.

    What’s amazing to me as I talk about this with Liberals is how they are utterly unaware of the development. They seem to believe they’ve got a lock on the old Truman-voting party, and have merely expanded it—*without cost*—to their ascendant coalition of the fringes. It’s a real delusion, evidenced by the incredulity of elite Liberals when they receive an electoral rebuke.

    I wrote this in April of 2018:

    Since we have a first-past-the-post style electoral scheme, we are going to have a two party system. The future two party system conflict is going to be between the Globalizers and the Patriots. The Democrat Party is now, and will become even more so, the Globalizer political party. The GOP will become explicitly the political party for White Core American Patriots.

     


    The Globalizer Democrat Party will attack sovereignty and nationalism. The Globalizer Democrat Party will attack the historic American nation and the descendants of the European Christian colonists, settlers and pioneers who built the United States.

     


    The Patriot GOP will explicitly advance the social, cultural, political and economic interests of the European Christian ancestral core of the United States. The Patriot GOP will stop all legal immigration and deport all illegal alien infiltrators. The Patriot GOP will go to an offshore balancing foreign policy that might allow the dollar to slide by as the global reserve currency for a few more decades.

     


    The Patriot GOP will not tolerate Chinese cheap labor financialization to further destroy the manufacturing base of the United States. It is obvious that for several decades now the GOP ruling class has crawled into bed with the Communist Party of China. The GOP has pushed trade deal scams that have allowed China to destroy much of America’s manufacturing base. The GOP ruling class has treasonously allowed millions of Chinese to infiltrate the United States.

     


    The Patriot GOP will take advantage of the upcoming global financial implosion to expedite the removal of foreigners from the United States. The Patriot GOP will use the US military to isolate the continent of Africa so as to prevent the Africans from creating invasionary problems throughout the rest of the world. The Russians and Chinese will agree to isolate Africa demographically. The Patriot GOP will give “isolationism” a new twist on its previous slanderous definition.

    Steve,

    Early in his political career I saw Crowley in "action" at a local Democratic party rally. To say his performance uninspiring was a gross overstatement. It's amazing he got as far as he did even in parochial Queens County politics.

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    I worked a special election (no parties, so no automatic Democrat votes) in the 21st Council District running against one of Crowley's favorite proteges, Francisco Moya. The Moyas call themselves 'the Kennedys of Corona,' but things have changed.

    We stomped them. Crowley's 'machine' consisted of a few lawyers in a Nassau County law firm. They had no ground game, and even though Moya is Ecuadorian, their Spanish lit was riddled with errors. But the whole time everyone was telling us we had no chance.

    All Democrats know that White Privilege means that being a white in a mostly nonwhite election can’t possibly be a hindrance. It’s a law of nature or of math or something. Only racists would say something like that. The fact that only 18% of the residents of NY14 were white in the 2010 Census just proves that White Privilege Something Something.

     

    If being White was such an extreme disadvantage, how exactly did he get elected three times previously?

    But of course, for all you white Democrats out there, there’s nothing to worry about. Crowley didn’t lose because he’s white, he lost because he’s, uh, a loser. Your white children have nothing to worry about regarding the New Improved Democratic Party of the Future. Nothing!

     

    He skipped both primary debates. He was in tight with Wall Street and the real estate developers. He didn't send his kids to school in his own district (and may not even have lived there). Do you think that, perhaps, he was slightly out of touch with constituents? Perhaps these constituents felt he was taking them for granted?

    He was commonly name-checked as the 3rd or 4th most powerful Democrat in the House, and on the short list to be speaker or minority leader. Nobody with a functioning brainstem votes against that kind of power to bring the pork to the home district. My guess is that instead of following the example of Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd and bringing home the bacon, Crowley aped the unlamented Great White Whale of Hyannisport and was more focused on saving the world instead of his district…without the backing of the Kennedy political apparatus.

    So "Curb Wall Street Gambling: Restore Glass Steagall" is "shameless"?

    "Clean Campaign Finance" is "shameless"?

    The funny thing here is that a large fraction of the posters here never talk about "other people's money" when the issue is emptying the national treasury into the pockets of defense contractors or corporations who want subsidies. Suddenly, everybody becomes a fiscal hawk when she mentions "Medicare For All."

    By the way, who do you think benefits from "Medicare For All"? The fact is that 43% of Medicaid recipients are non-Hispanic white. So if "Medicare For All" passed, close to half the people benefting would be White.

    I'd bet a substantial fraction of the posters here have been (or will be at some point) on Medicaid and could benefit from such a program. To hear some of the people here talk, you'd think 90% of Medicaid recipients were NAMs........

    By the way, some of the above proposals might save money. For example, the U.S. healthcare system is enormously expensive (an issue that few posters here ever speak about). "Medicare For All" is an attempt to reign in costs through mass-scale negotiating. Ending "private prisons" (which often are enormous give aways to connected contractors) is another attempt to reign in costs.

    Which isn't to say she'll be a particularly good representative or that her ideas are amazing. Mostly I'm just saying that she's not as insane or irresponsible as some people here make her out to be. By the standards of American politicians, she's not that far out of the mainstream.

    By the way, some of the above proposals might save money.

    http://mondoweiss.net/2018/06/insurgent-anymore-palestinian/

    There is only one political story today, the defeat of Democratic Party stalwart Joseph Crowley by insurgent socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, in a congressional district in the Bronx and Queens. The news has reverberations for our issue, U.S. policy in the Middle East. Ocasio-Cortez has called on the party to end its silence on Palestinian human rights.

    Here is Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet from the May 14 massacre on the Gaza border, when Israel killed 62 Palestinian protesters even as the U.S. moved the embassy:

    This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.

    Crowley had supported the move of the embassy to Jerusalem, which detonated the killings, and catered to the Israel lobby group AIPAC. He is the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, a ten-term congressman, the personification of the old guard. The party establishment has been wed to support for Israel even as the forces that Ocasio-Cortez represents, younger and more diverse, have demanded greater backing for Palestinian human rights.

    Very good analysis. This topic has been taken up by Steve Sailer early on with his "coalition of the fringes" essays.

    The new Democratic party will not be friendly to the interests of the Zionists and that is why so many Jews jumped ship from their natural home as liberal Democrats to become supposedly conservative Republicans.

    I am looking forward to some political party asking important questions about our relationship with Israel and bringing the issue of their land theft and their treatment of the Palestinians to the forefront.

    Things are not going according to the plan of the Zionists.

    The new Democratic party will not only continue to be hostile to the historic American nation and the white people who created that nation, it will become hostile to the Jews. Pandora's box has been opened, and the people who have done more than anyone to open that box will suffer for their folly.

    Trump should negotiate a deal with Zimbabwe to deliver Central American migrants to that country as laborers. The Zimbabwe economy has completely imploded, and is in desperate need of the miraculous economic boost that is available only from importation of unskilled Latin-American labor (doing the jobs Africans won't do). Out of humanitarianism, the United States would agree to foot the entire transportation cost and salary (12 trillion Mugollars, or $37.50 American) of any migrant who signed up for the deal. It's a massive win-win. Zimbabwe gets an instant jump to the top of the world economic standings, and the Central Americans get good jobs and opportunities for their children, plus the advantages of living in a country completely free of racist oppression (at 99.998% black, Zimbabwe is one of the most diverse countries in the world).

    Most of these people show up claiming asylum due to drugs and gangs in their home towns. Well if drugs and gangs back home are a free pass into the USA, then every single human being from Juarez to Tierra del Fuego has a case for asylum. (There are gangs in my city, where is MY asylum?)

    “I owe a bunch of money to some cartel guys and I’m running away from home” is not a valid case for asylum.

    “Jose got into the tequila again and slapped me around some” is not a valid case for asylum.

    Thirdly, asylum has certain rules according to international law. If they truly are a persecuted minority fleeing genocide, then they must apply for asylum in the first safe country they arrive in. In this case, that would be Mexico. However, Mexico cares nothing for international law and wants nothing to do with these people, so they just put them on buses for the US border. Let the stupid gringos feed them for life.

    Really? It sounds perfectly middle-of-the-road to me. It's the kind of thing that both Eisenhower and FDR would have been OK with. Heck, FDR was OK with deporting Mexicans who had US citizenship:

    The Mexican Repatriation was a mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936. Estimates of how many were repatriated range from 400,000 to 2,000,000.[1]:xiii[2]:150 An estimated sixty percent of those deported were birthright citizens of the United States.[2]:330 Because the forced movement was based on race, and ignored citizenship, the process arguably meets modern legal definitions of ethnic cleansing.[3]:6

    Perhaps you don't understand the scale of the threat facing Anglo-America:

    In 2009, after a decade and a half of litigation, a U.S. immigration court granted asylum to a Guatemalan woman who pleaded that she had been victimized by domestic abuse.
     

    Hard cases really do make for bad law. Matter of R-A- opened the door to claims for asylum based on fear of private persons: husbands, gangs, criminals. The door was not used right away, because the case was decided just as the United States plunged into its steepest recession since the 1930s. But as the U.S. job market revived during Obama’s second term, people across Central America responded to their new opportunity to escape their poor and violent homelands. Hundreds of thousands of them set out to find a new and more prosperous life north of the Rio Grande.
     

    What happened instead was that the United States imposed an elaborate pretense on its would-be immigrants. Surveys consistently showed that Central Americans immigrated to the U.S. in search of better work and better pay. A Pew survey in 2011 found that only about 13 percent cited crime and violence as their main motive. But the search for better pay does not provide legal grounds for remaining in the United States; fear of violence might. Immigrants, like all human beings, are rational actors who tell the stories most likely to obtain the result they seek. The medium through which that story is told is the asylum claim.

     


    As of the end of 2017, almost 300,000 Central Americans claimed some form of refugee or asylum status in the U.S., Mexico, Panama, or other receiving country, according to the UN High Commission on Refugees. (Strikingly, asylum claims are rising—up 58 percent over 2016—even as violence has steeply declined in Honduras and Guatemala.)

     


    The sheer number of these claims is choking the American capacity to respond to them. Each claim must get an individual hearing. The facts are often complicated, since some of those expressing fear of criminal gangs were themselves previously involved in those gangs in one way or another. It takes longer and longer to adjudicate cases: a median of 43 days in fiscal 2006, 286 days in fiscal 2015, and almost certainly much longer than that by now. While something like 60 percent of asylum claims are rejected, a rejected asylum claim does not easily translate into a repatriated asylum claimant.
     

    The questions before the courts are profoundly unresolvable. How much crime must an individual fear to receive asylum? The homicide rate in Guatemala—about 24 per 100,000 people in 2016—was almost five times higher than the United States rate of 5.3 per 100,000 that year. But the German homicide rate in turn is less than 1 per 100,000. Could an American seek asylum in Germany on that basis? You might say: Nobody would want to. But if German wages averaged 10 or 20 times those in the United States, many Americans might change their minds about the urgency of the 5-to-1 violence differential between the two countries.

    Oh boy! I understand all these things are about other people’s money. Puerto Rico plan takes the prize in its naked shamelessness:

     

    So "Curb Wall Street Gambling: Restore Glass Steagall" is "shameless"?

    "Clean Campaign Finance" is "shameless"?

    The funny thing here is that a large fraction of the posters here never talk about "other people's money" when the issue is emptying the national treasury into the pockets of defense contractors or corporations who want subsidies. Suddenly, everybody becomes a fiscal hawk when she mentions "Medicare For All."

    By the way, who do you think benefits from "Medicare For All"? The fact is that 43% of Medicaid recipients are non-Hispanic white. So if "Medicare For All" passed, close to half the people benefting would be White.

    I'd bet a substantial fraction of the posters here have been (or will be at some point) on Medicaid and could benefit from such a program. To hear some of the people here talk, you'd think 90% of Medicaid recipients were NAMs........

    By the way, some of the above proposals might save money. For example, the U.S. healthcare system is enormously expensive (an issue that few posters here ever speak about). "Medicare For All" is an attempt to reign in costs through mass-scale negotiating. Ending "private prisons" (which often are enormous give aways to connected contractors) is another attempt to reign in costs.

    Which isn't to say she'll be a particularly good representative or that her ideas are amazing. Mostly I'm just saying that she's not as insane or irresponsible as some people here make her out to be. By the standards of American politicians, she's not that far out of the mainstream.

    Glass-Steagall created modern investment banking. Your nth-generation Huey Long notion of “sticking it to the fatcats” won’t be realized by winding all financial regulations back to 1935. “Clean Campaign Finance,” what is that? Letting billionaires who are owners of newspapers electioneer, but stomping on business owners who make packaging products or commercial upholstery fabrics? Let me guess, you also think there is “too much money in politics” i.e. too much competition every election for the incumbent Congressman-For-Life party-hack seatholders

    If Crowley has the sense of an old New York pol, he'll get on the ballot as an independent, then grease a few palms. Hispanics have terrible turnout. That, plus the usual Democrat ballot box stuffing, could still give him the victory. I imagine the old-line Dems are beginning to get both nervous and angry about the young Turks in their own party, and Dems being Dems, it's going to get ugly.

    There's nothing nastier or more vicious than an old Dem determined to cling to power. (See Hillary Clinton for an example). New York politics are insanely corrupt, so I think he has a good chance of wiping out his opponent. If he could put together a coalition of whites, Asians, and blacks, he could still win.

    Its not just white voters that will be leaving the Democrats soon. Their large donors are the ones that will spook first.

    One of the under-reported revelations of Donna Brazil’s book was that the reason the Democrats had to fix the primaries so early was because it was the only way they could secure the backing of their (((wealthy donors))). The rules maxing contributions at $2,500 per donor (or whatever it is) per candidate it put them in a position where the overflow had to funnel its way through the Democratic Party. They are far more reliant on mega donors and there was no way many of them would give anything to the Democrats if there was a chance that Bernie Sanders and the rabble he represented might get into power. Ironically, we could easily have had a President Sanders had it been a fair fight.

    In the future, look for the rules in the Democratic Party to get rid of the super delegates, even out the funding, and making things more transparent. All that will do, is hasten the exit of elites from the party. What the Democrats really need is a openly pro-Palestine candidate to win. That’s next.

    Here is one:

    The Norman invasion of Ireland took place in stages during the late 12th century, at a time when Gaelic Ireland was made up of several kingdoms, with a High King claiming lordship over all.

    In May 1169, Cambro-Norman mercenaries landed in Ireland at the request of Diarmait Mac Murchada (Dermot MacMurragh), the ousted King of Leinster, who had sought their help in regaining his kingdom. Diarmait and the Normans seized Leinster within weeks and launched raids into neighbouring kingdoms.

    The Norman invasion was a watershed in the history of Ireland, marking the beginning of more than 800 years of direct English and, later, British involvement in Ireland.

    Really? It sounds perfectly middle-of-the-road to me. It’s the kind of thing that both Eisenhower and FDR would have been OK with. Heck, FDR was OK with deporting Mexicans who had US citizenship:

    The Mexican Repatriation was a mass deportation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans from the United States between 1929 and 1936. Estimates of how many were repatriated range from 400,000 to 2,000,000.[1]:xiii[2]:150 An estimated sixty percent of those deported were birthright citizens of the United States.[2]:330 Because the forced movement was based on race, and ignored citizenship, the process arguably meets modern legal definitions of ethnic cleansing.[3]:6

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.
     
    Another good comment, iStevefan.

    Perhaps because I’ve been frequenting this site for so long, the above observation seems absolutely obvious to me. It’s not just about the macro level of political parties, but about the disaggregation of the old Cold War political coalitions, and their recombination into something new; the idea that a person you considered an adversary yesterday may be an ally tomorrow.

    What’s amazing to me as I talk about this with Liberals is how they are utterly unaware of the development. They seem to believe they’ve got a lock on the old Truman-voting party, and have merely expanded it—*without cost*—to their ascendant coalition of the fringes. It’s a real delusion, evidenced by the incredulity of elite Liberals when they receive an electoral rebuke.

    It’s hard to talk about subjects like this with those who don’t delve into the subject because they are lagging in their understanding of the changes. In addition to people not following this major shift in political orientation is their lack of understanding of the true nature of the immivasion. If they still live in isolated areas they think the USA is just like it was in 1978.

    “My husband beats me; it’s part of the Hispanic culture. I and 200 million of my sisters are seeking asylum. As usual, after it’s granted we will request our husbands, children, and relatives join us as part of family unification. ‘Comer mierda’ you stupid cucks.

    Somehow, I don’t think this is going to turn out well.

    The most obtuse example of our current immigration malaise is the Hispanic woman who sent her daughter across the border alone. Now, she claims the right to legal immigration to the United States under the new policy/lower court ruling that mandates uniting children with their parents.

    Perhaps you don’t understand the scale of the threat facing Anglo-America:

    In 2009, after a decade and a half of litigation, a U.S. immigration court granted asylum to a Guatemalan woman who pleaded that she had been victimized by domestic abuse.

    Hard cases really do make for bad law. Matter of R-A- opened the door to claims for asylum based on fear of private persons: husbands, gangs, criminals. The door was not used right away, because the case was decided just as the United States plunged into its steepest recession since the 1930s. But as the U.S. job market revived during Obama’s second term, people across Central America responded to their new opportunity to escape their poor and violent homelands.

    Wrong. No one from Latin America has a valid claim for asylum. Unless there's a scorched-earth genocidal civil war going on between Guatemala and Honduras that we've somehow missed. Or an ISIS-style militia raping and pillaging its way across Brazil?

    Most of these people show up claiming asylum due to drugs and gangs in their home towns. Well if drugs and gangs back home are a free pass into the USA, then every single human being from Juarez to Tierra del Fuego has a case for asylum. (There are gangs in my city, where is MY asylum?)

    "I owe a bunch of money to some cartel guys and I'm running away from home" is not a valid case for asylum.

    "Jose got into the tequila again and slapped me around some" is not a valid case for asylum.

    Thirdly, asylum has certain rules according to international law. If they truly are a persecuted minority fleeing genocide, then they must apply for asylum in the first safe country they arrive in. In this case, that would be Mexico. However, Mexico cares nothing for international law and wants nothing to do with these people, so they just put them on buses for the US border. Let the stupid gringos feed them for life.

    Or an ISIS-style militia raping and pillaging its way

    The FARC still operates in Amazonian Colômbia, but then their victims are not of the kind that can raise money to immigrate (because if they were they would already have left for the safer areas in the region).

    Invaders deserve no due process, glad you accept that you're a slippery pussy, though. Fortunately, as shown in the article, white liberal nances like you are a dying breed, you're getting eaten by the "POC" pets you thought you could ride to a permanent majority

    Because I believe in due process I’m a “white liberal nance” “pussy” who thought I could ride colored people to a “permanent majority”? What?

    I’ll say this much: if I had my way you would be immediately put into a psychiatric ward indefinitely for posting such an insane comment. (Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.) Your due process would be trying to convince the psychiatrists that you’re not as insane as you seem.

    The average Mexican is better off than 70% of the world's population (or roughly 5 billion people). As Freed Reed explains, it's a prosperous, democratic country. Ergo, anyone applying for asylum crossing the Mexican boarder should be sent back automatically and immediately. There's no reason they can't apply in the first "safe" country the arrive in, whether it's Mexico or somewhere else.

    To rephrase what I wrote elsewhere: imagine if tens of millions of Black Africans arrived in Mexico seeking asylum. What would Mexico do? What about Japan, Malaysia, or any other non-White country? It's sentiments like yours that got us here in the first place.

    @syonredux

    2 edgy 4 me
     
    Perhaps you don't understand the scale of the threat facing Anglo-America:

    In 2009, after a decade and a half of litigation, a U.S. immigration court granted asylum to a Guatemalan woman who pleaded that she had been victimized by domestic abuse.
     

    Hard cases really do make for bad law. Matter of R-A- opened the door to claims for asylum based on fear of private persons: husbands, gangs, criminals. The door was not used right away, because the case was decided just as the United States plunged into its steepest recession since the 1930s. But as the U.S. job market revived during Obama’s second term, people across Central America responded to their new opportunity to escape their poor and violent homelands. Hundreds of thousands of them set out to find a new and more prosperous life north of the Rio Grande.
     

    What happened instead was that the United States imposed an elaborate pretense on its would-be immigrants. Surveys consistently showed that Central Americans immigrated to the U.S. in search of better work and better pay. A Pew survey in 2011 found that only about 13 percent cited crime and violence as their main motive. But the search for better pay does not provide legal grounds for remaining in the United States; fear of violence might. Immigrants, like all human beings, are rational actors who tell the stories most likely to obtain the result they seek. The medium through which that story is told is the asylum claim.

     


    As of the end of 2017, almost 300,000 Central Americans claimed some form of refugee or asylum status in the U.S., Mexico, Panama, or other receiving country, according to the UN High Commission on Refugees. (Strikingly, asylum claims are rising—up 58 percent over 2016—even as violence has steeply declined in Honduras and Guatemala.)

     


    The sheer number of these claims is choking the American capacity to respond to them. Each claim must get an individual hearing. The facts are often complicated, since some of those expressing fear of criminal gangs were themselves previously involved in those gangs in one way or another. It takes longer and longer to adjudicate cases: a median of 43 days in fiscal 2006, 286 days in fiscal 2015, and almost certainly much longer than that by now. While something like 60 percent of asylum claims are rejected, a rejected asylum claim does not easily translate into a repatriated asylum claimant.
     

    The questions before the courts are profoundly unresolvable. How much crime must an individual fear to receive asylum? The homicide rate in Guatemala—about 24 per 100,000 people in 2016—was almost five times higher than the United States rate of 5.3 per 100,000 that year. But the German homicide rate in turn is less than 1 per 100,000. Could an American seek asylum in Germany on that basis? You might say: Nobody would want to. But if German wages averaged 10 or 20 times those in the United States, many Americans might change their minds about the urgency of the 5-to-1 violence differential between the two countries.

    Can you get a DVD or BR copy of Fast Times with the original theatrical music soundtrack now? At least in the past, they always replaced the music with other, and less good, selections because when they signed contracts for the music in the theatrical release, the license didn't include home media releases, and when they went back to negotiate the musicians' agents tried to ram it up their nether parts on license fees, so they subbed the music. The changes ruin the film for anyone who remembers it as shown in a real cinema of the time.

    They should just release it without music. Then fans can add the original music.

    Racially charged incident happened on the bus on my way home this afternoon. We were at a stop waiting for our driver to hand the bus to another driver. The previous driver always gives info to the driver taking over, about traffic, the bus’s handling, etc. So both drivers were talking as the Black female driver gathered her belongings to exit the bus. A Black guy tried to come up the bus steps. The relief driver, standing on the steps and who is a Latino with a heavy accent tells the guy that they are changing drivers and asks him to wait a minute. This is common, passengers usually wait until the relief driver is seated before embarking. The Black guy starts insisting on boarding the bus. Vince, the driver again asks the guy to wait. The Black guy says he has heavy bags and needs to get on. Vince reluctantly gets off the bus to let the guy pass. The guy gets on and puts his duffle bag down on a seat and says, “You stupid mf! You did that on purpose! You’re a Mexican! Mexicans hate Black people! I lived in Arizona and all the Mexicans hate Blacks!”

    It went on and on and a Black girl next to me called her friend and was giving a blow by blow about it and said, “This ni&&@$ crazy!”

    My Black co-worker, riding with me also felt the ni&&@ was crazy! So did I!

    Was pumping gas today at busy hour, everyone jockeying to get gas, when a black guy pulled up, rap blaring, and parked on the other side of the gas island. As he walked through the island, he says "you bess not back into me," then I see the car backing up come into view. It keeps backing up, and without having taken a step to avoid his possible fate or altering his stride one iota, the black raps on the tail light of the vehicle as he walks past. A lot of Blacks are just flat out of their minds. If he thinks being strapped or whatever is his trump card, he's 2x nuts; a LOT of people here carry concealed (you can keep a handgun in your glove box, sans permit) and would be more than happy to give an assailant a lead salad.

    Anyway, go figure, it was actually about a Latina promising to spend more of the white people's money on Latinos. Time to balkanize now while we still have some control over the purse strings. Do guys like Paul Ryan get what eventually becomes of the cheap illegal labor? Could someone get a paper featuring this article & rub his nose in it?

    Here is one:

    The Norman invasion of Ireland took place in stages during the late 12th century, at a time when Gaelic Ireland was made up of several kingdoms, with a High King claiming lordship over all.

    In May 1169, Cambro-Norman mercenaries landed in Ireland at the request of Diarmait Mac Murchada (Dermot MacMurragh), the ousted King of Leinster, who had sought their help in regaining his kingdom. Diarmait and the Normans seized Leinster within weeks and launched raids into neighbouring kingdoms.
    ...

    The Norman invasion was a watershed in the history of Ireland, marking the beginning of more than 800 years of direct English and, later, British involvement in Ireland.

     

    Although let us not forget that Dublin was founded by Vikings, who of course were the progenitors of the Normans (i.e., Vikings who laid seige to Paris and basically got protection money to defend against themselves). So it gets a bit recursive/incestuous, no?

It's all inherited from the old Tammany machines and hasn't been updated--your petitions have to have a certain number of valid signatures from each Election District, your petition carriers have to live in such-and-such a district, the papers have to be stapled in a certain way.

    Ocasio-Cortez was a Sanders organizer in 2015-16, and learned firsthand how jacked up the NYS election laws are, and got experience at navigating that minefield and registering voters.

    So you have a hungry Young Turk registering new voters, and a machine hack looking at the pros-and-cons of challenging Nancy Pelosi for the Speakership after the Democrats win a House majority. Skipping primary debates? Jeebus. Nobody watches them, so the only way to lose is to not show up so that your challenger can use that as a talking point.

    Ocasio-Cortez is the shape of things to come in the Democratic Party, but the future is still a few election cycles off. The white Democratic gerontocracy will erode away, rather than collapsing all at once.

    As I recall, we spent something like $5 trillion looking for nonexistent "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq. If she wants to spend a tiny fraction of that sum in providing healthcare to her own constituents, that might not be totally insane.

And the Asians who are here on that investor visa deal. And the Mauritians who are here on Sen. Kennedy’s Diversity Visa boondoggle. But other than all the non-Mexicans, everybody here cares about the Mexicans.

     


    So, while Mexicans haven’t accomplished as much as expected politically in California and Texas, various Caribbean Hispanics have been doing pretty well on the Eastern Seaboard.
     
    If Mexicans are unambitious, wouldn't that indicate that White Democrats don't have much to fear politically?

    Actually it is pretty big…….all politics is local (for most voters) so this Dem establishment upset could happen across the country.

    Crowley raised and spent 3,350,000 Cortez raised and spent 300,000. 3/4 of her donations from small donors 1/4 from large donors.
    She got nothing from the DNC and not even any endorsements from others dems.

    She also broke the Israel/ Jew taboo

    ”Israeli army’s actions on the Gaza border on May 14, “This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.”

    One of my considerations for this new kind of millennial candidate would be…..do I want to give Israel 38 billion or would I rather spend it on first generation American immigrants like Cortez’s group since they aren’t going to be leaving anyway and on American infrastructure.

    The call for open borders doesn’t bother me cause the opposition cat is out of the box and isn’t going back in despite what liberals or illegals or one world socialist clamber for.

  159. A New White Supremacy-Pale-Skinned Hispanic Elites

    The Hispanics who do rise to the top into politics are going to be about the complexion of Al Pacino.

    Then they will simply set up the same system of racism that they have in Brazil or Cuba. Even AMONG the pure Spanish there is a subtle distinction between the “Gallegos” from Northwest Spain and the Canary Islanders who comprise the so-called Hispanic Whites.

    While these Ricky Martin lookalikes will play up Hispanic roots they will look at home in an Italian pizza parlor in New Jersey.

    The reason is that these folks have always been able to jostle to the top of color cast continuum in Latin America and will presume to do so in the United States.

    NY insurgent who said ‘Dems can’t be silent anymore’ about Palestine clips AIPAC poodle in primary shocker
    http://mondoweiss.net/2018/06/insurgent-anymore-palestinian/

    There is only one political story today, the defeat of Democratic Party stalwart Joseph Crowley by insurgent socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, in a congressional district in the Bronx and Queens. The news has reverberations for our issue, U.S. policy in the Middle East. Ocasio-Cortez has called on the party to end its silence on Palestinian human rights.

    Here is Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet from the May 14 massacre on the Gaza border, when Israel killed 62 Palestinian protesters even as the U.S. moved the embassy:

    This is a massacre. I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such. No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else. Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.

    Crowley had supported the move of the embassy to Jerusalem, which detonated the killings, and catered to the Israel lobby group AIPAC. He is the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, a ten-term congressman, the personification of the old guard. The party establishment has been wed to support for Israel even as the forces that Ocasio-Cortez represents, younger and more diverse, have demanded greater backing for Palestinian human rights.

    Haaretz has more of the story:.....

    How do the "allies" feel now? If more are seeing the light, it's a good thing. And the Palestinians really shouldn't have said (in Arabic) that they were going to kill as many Israelis as possible before trying to breach the border with hatchets. There's no dignified way to respond to that, so Israel did what was required.

    And if the embassy move to Jerusalem "detonated" it, who is responsible for the emotional reactions of Palestinians? Aren't they adults?

    AndrewR,

    I get it! Due process means accepting anyone and everyone's request for asylum at the border.

    "My husband beats me; it's part of the Hispanic culture. I and 200 million of my sisters are seeking asylum. As usual, after it's granted we will request our husbands, children, and relatives join us as part of family unification. 'Comer mierda' you stupid cucks.

    "Islam is sexist; it mistreats women. I and my Muslim sisters (all two billion of us) request asylum in the United States. As usual, after it's granted we will request our husbands, children, and relatives join us as part of family unification. 'Allahu Akbar' you stupid cucks."

    Somehow, I don't think this is going to turn out well.

    The most obtuse example of our current immigration malaise is the Hispanic woman who sent her daughter across the border alone. Now, she claims the right to legal immigration to the United States under the new policy/lower court ruling that mandates uniting children with their parents.

    Islam is sexist; it mistreats women.

    If you think your pagan godless societies are any less sexist and misogynist (sure in different ways), then you should extract your noggin out your nether hole.

    The average Mexican is better off than 70% of the world's population (or roughly 5 billion people). As Freed Reed explains, it's a prosperous, democratic country. Ergo, anyone applying for asylum crossing the Mexican boarder should be sent back automatically and immediately. There's no reason they can't apply in the first "safe" country the arrive in, whether it's Mexico or somewhere else.

    To rephrase what I wrote elsewhere: imagine if tens of millions of Black Africans arrived in Mexico seeking asylum. What would Mexico do? What about Japan, Malaysia, or any other non-White country? It's sentiments like yours that got us here in the first place.

    They’re much better off in Mexico, where they speak the language and the culture is simpatico.

    Mr. Crowley,what did we learn today?Cuckery always begets more cuckery.But something tells me your still not getting it.

    Of course he is not getting it. Not until they were tossed into prison, or even executed, did the Old Bolsheviks get it that the revolution they brought about would devour them too. They just assumed that their lives would be filled with destroying the lives of the hated devoutly Orthodox or Catholic, the conservative in culture or politics or economics.

    In the USSR, when the hammer finally fell on a few Jews, with Trotsky the most prominent, all Jews were shocked. After all, they knew that the revolution was about destroying Christians and politically/culturally conservative and moderate Gentiles. It was their revolution against Christendom, and they were supposed to be the devourers, never the devoured, the torturers, never the tortured.

    The most important way to discern Neoconservatism is that it is an attempt by Jews to revive all the merciless fury of Bolshevism and make it so that Jews cannot get tossed into the fire at any point. And that was done by integrating fully into the heart of power of WASP Empire, which was easy as pie because WASP culture was born of a Judaizing heresy: Anglo-Saxon Puritanism. Judaizing heresy always produces pro-Jewish politics and culture which also necessarily must hate unto death all white cultures that have not been bitten hard by the revolutionary bug.

    Poor Crowley, though, is not Jewish. He is most expendable. As is Pelosi.

    He was commonly name-checked as the 3rd or 4th most powerful Democrat in the House, and on the short list to be speaker or minority leader. Nobody with a functioning brainstem votes against that kind of power to bring the pork to the home district. My guess is that instead of following the example of Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd and bringing home the bacon, Crowley aped the unlamented Great White Whale of Hyannisport and was more focused on saving the world instead of his district...without the backing of the Kennedy political apparatus.

    At best, you are hopelessly naive and using your ignorance of Crowley to prove your hopeless naivete.

    Crowley got the ax because Crowley is a white male heterosexual, who has yet to go ballistic against Christianity, and the sacred cow blacks and brown people demanded what the revolution says to do: boot all the straight white males.

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    Maybe. Maybe not so much. Drawing district lines is interesting. From what I can tell, NY state was redistricted after the 2010 census losing 2 congressional districts. The state legislature was split so it went to a panel of federal judges who sent it to a local federal judge who went with a plan by this guy: Nathaniel Persily. E.g. http://www.mcall.com/news/nationworld/pennsylvania/capitol-ideas/mc-nws-stanford-law-professor-pennsylvania-congress-map-20180213-story.html

    In the end I guess there are a lot of compromises, but one more interesting thing is that there’s lots of building —both office and residential, in and around (South & West) that area, so perhaps another Redistricting in 4 years time is inevitable.

    I don’t think —or rather, don’t know enough to think that Crowley had his district redistricted out from under him.

    But after that map came out he must have had some thoughts on what type of opponent could defeat him.

    The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats' plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

    For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

    I know that securing the border all seems pretty hopeless right now, with 100% of Democratic politicians in favor of erasing our borders. But a few more victories by wise young Latinas over tired old white guys like Crowley and perhaps a few Democrats will start to come around. After all, they're doing their best to pander to the Hispanic vote and it ain't doing them a who lot of good. Crowley's NumbersUSA grade is an F-.

    looks like not only Crowley miss the train but Wilkey too.
    Forget race Wilkey! what do you have to say for yourself politically, ideologically? whose die you on the rich..or on the side of life?

    Methinks that where you stand and your sincerity would have an whole lot to do with your political potential out there these days. the room for racist politics, flim flam and money politics disappearing in late stage capitalism.

    for the ordinary, the poor, the middle etc. life standard is falling. the choice now is a way that allows the majority to live and move forward..or die. that’s the choice of late stage capitalism. the impression I have is that any politician who adresses the questions of survival in the stage we have arrived, sincerely from the angle of the people will do well regardless of ethnicity.

    Bernie Sanders did powerfully well..and to be crass, he is a Jew with white skin.

    you missed the bus Wilkey..but there are others coming, going in that same direction. line up and catch the next one.

    it is not a race issue basically. it never was though by the white skin you could get ahead on that alone. now all ordinary people are being killed, culled. white skin color is no longer protection. just as many whites catch police bullets. whites eat more or as much GMO food than colored..they have more money for the supermarkets. and its the same with opium/Opioids.

    Haaretz has more of the story:.....

    Very good analysis. This topic has been taken up by Steve Sailer early on with his “coalition of the fringes” essays.

    The new Democratic party will not be friendly to the interests of the Zionists and that is why so many Jews jumped ship from their natural home as liberal Democrats to become supposedly conservative Republicans.

    I am looking forward to some political party asking important questions about our relationship with Israel and bringing the issue of their land theft and their treatment of the Palestinians to the forefront.

    Things are not going according to the plan of the Zionists.

    The new Democratic party will not only continue to be hostile to the historic American nation and the white people who created that nation, it will become hostile to the Jews. Pandora’s box has been opened, and the people who have done more than anyone to open that box will suffer for their folly.

  185. The liberal media portrays it as a massive win but it is not. To explain who the Democrats elected. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to Blanca (born in Puerto Rico) and Sergio Ocasio-Cortez. Her mother is born in Puerto Rico and her father is born in New York City. Both of them identified as white Hispanic. In 1993 the family moved from Bronx to very white Yorktown, about 45 minutes from Manhattan. Her father (an architect) had his business in Bronx but that was her only connection as most of her relatives actually live in Yorktown, Bergen County and other very white suburbs to New York City. You can learn a lot with the help of Google.

    It's a big win. It is hard to see it as anything else. It shows that anybody can win and you don't need millions of dollars...in fact, you can go up AGAINST millions of dollars and the entrenched establishment and win. It is just a little revolutionary.

    If her election was a scam and just a novelty, so is like every other politician's in the US for at least the last 50 years. Get over it.

    Sure racial identity may have played a small role. But the big story here is that this is a continuation of the Progressive wave embodied by Bernie Sanders. Progressives don’t want centrist Democrats that are little different from centrist Republicans: pro-Wall St., pro-corporate, pro-war.

    And about the money to pay for it all… When the increase in the military budget alone would have paid for Bernie’s free tuition plan, our country has a problem with it’s priorities.

    Puerto Ricans are US citizens but pay no US income tax...they pay a income tax to Puerto Rico......they do however pay into US SS and Medicare. They do also have a welfare system funded by both Puerto Rico and the US.
    In addition Puerto Rico is dead broke and billons in debt and was even before the hurricane crisis.

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    Tim Manton was dying of cancer when he gave way to Crowley. Surprise that given the demographic of the CD Crowley didn’t see it coming and that the unions weren’t out in force for him. That being said Crowley would not have stood up to the pressures emerging in the Democrat Party. Supine as he might be his days were numbered under the best circumstance.

They do as exactly as they are told by he party leaders. Most of them went to catholic school but they vote for all the anti life and anti family issues that their party pushes. It will not be long before the Irish American whiskey drinkers are replaced in the big cities by the people they champion. It is a good schadenfreude to see these old white haired crooks thrown on the trash heap as history passes them and be replaced by the new Americans that they have brought into the country.

    Most white Democrats love the idea that white people aren’t welcome.
     
    I am not so sure of that. I read a couple months back that 1/3 of Hillary voters were white working class as opposed to a little over 1/4 of her voters being white, college educated.

    Of the 40 percent of whites who still vote D, I'm guessing 1 in 4 are hard core believers in the cult marx stuff. But I would think half of the whites who vote D don't fit into this category. Anecdotally I have met a few where I live in Missouri. Many democrats here are democrats out of tradition. They still think the democrats are the party of Harry Truman who look out for the working man. The GOP is associated with rich guys at golf clubs. There is still a bit a truth to the latter, but the former is no longer true.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.

    I wrote this in April of 2018:

    Since we have a first-past-the-post style electoral scheme, we are going to have a two party system. The future two party system conflict is going to be between the Globalizers and the Patriots. The Democrat Party is now, and will become even more so, the Globalizer political party. The GOP will become explicitly the political party for White Core American Patriots.

    The Globalizer Democrat Party will attack sovereignty and nationalism. The Globalizer Democrat Party will attack the historic American nation and the descendants of the European Christian colonists, settlers and pioneers who built the United States.

    The Patriot GOP will explicitly advance the social, cultural, political and economic interests of the European Christian ancestral core of the United States. The Patriot GOP will stop all legal immigration and deport all illegal alien infiltrators. The Patriot GOP will go to an offshore balancing foreign policy that might allow the dollar to slide by as the global reserve currency for a few more decades.

    The Patriot GOP will not tolerate Chinese cheap labor financialization to further destroy the manufacturing base of the United States. It is obvious that for several decades now the GOP ruling class has crawled into bed with the Communist Party of China. The GOP has pushed trade deal scams that have allowed China to destroy much of America’s manufacturing base. The GOP ruling class has treasonously allowed millions of Chinese to infiltrate the United States.

    The Patriot GOP will take advantage of the upcoming global financial implosion to expedite the removal of foreigners from the United States. The Patriot GOP will use the US military to isolate the continent of Africa so as to prevent the Africans from creating invasionary problems throughout the rest of the world. The Russians and Chinese will agree to isolate Africa demographically. The Patriot GOP will give “isolationism” a new twist on its previous slanderous definition.

    The true scientific socialist movement of Trumpism-Leninism despises the false history of the Democratic-Socialists and their privileged institutions, and lays its foundations on the struggle of the worker against the Oligarchs, the worker against the corrupt bourgeois institutions of the decaying state, the worker against those who call them deplorables, gun clinging, bible clinging fools.

    Social Democracy stems from the “first international” (1863-1877), which were a serious of meetings and debates between socialist, communists and anarchist organizations, parties and intellectuals. Social Democrats argued that the aristocracy and capitalist class could only be overthrown through democratic reform. For them revolution was not an option. By the “second international” (1889-1916) Social Democrats was already working with liberal bourgeoisie, liberal parties and with agrarian parties for “democratic reform”. By the 1900s the Social Democratic efforts resulted in a compromise between the capitalist class, bourgeoisie and the agrarians to share political power. It was centrist statist approach on economics. One of the few exceptions among the Social Democratic parties was the German SPD that turned radical in the late 1890s. By the 1945 almost all Social Democratic parties in Western Europe adopted internationalism, neo-liberalism, Feminism and Western Marxism as their main ideology. They implemented their agenda through slow reform.

    A few years ago major Social Democratic parties in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Moldova, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and United States with withdrew from the “Socialist International” and formed “Progressive Alliance” in 2013. The Progressive Alliance is neo-liberal, post-marxist and internationalist and has little disregard for working class people. It is also controlled by Western parties. All member-parties from second and third world countries are domestically insignificant without any real economical and political power.

    Both Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders are much closer to the Progressive Alliance than the Socialist internationalist. The reason why the Democratic establishment does not like the “left-wing” in their party is because they compete for political seats they rather have for themselves. More so, they talk about special interests although they have no plan do anything about it. As soon as Ocasio-Cortez won she folded on Israel and most of her positions. These “social democrats” are not like Ron Paul that have said the same things (like it or not). Most contemporary socialists and liberals only care about open borders so the first world can be flooded by cheap labour. That is what they really care about. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democratic Party let Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez run for President in 2020.

  195. Well, when you have to apologize for your race (does not matter which race it is), it means prevailing racism. I knew that self-proclaimed liberals in the US are blatantly racist, but I did not think they would show their true colors so openly. In a way, it’s good – they showed themselves to be racist for all to see. Repulsiveness in the open is better than hypocritically hidden repulsiveness.

    The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats' plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

    For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

    I know that securing the border all seems pretty hopeless right now, with 100% of Democratic politicians in favor of erasing our borders. But a few more victories by wise young Latinas over tired old white guys like Crowley and perhaps a few Democrats will start to come around. After all, they're doing their best to pander to the Hispanic vote and it ain't doing them a who lot of good. Crowley's NumbersUSA grade is an F-.

    You are right, and this would serve those white Democrats right. Can’t wait to see them all out in the street, maybe even doing something useful, for a change.

    Racially charged incident happened on the bus on my way home this afternoon. We were at a stop waiting for our driver to hand the bus to another driver. The previous driver always gives info to the driver taking over, about traffic, the bus's handling, etc. So both drivers were talking as the Black female driver gathered her belongings to exit the bus. A Black guy tried to come up the bus steps. The relief driver, standing on the steps and who is a Latino with a heavy accent tells the guy that they are changing drivers and asks him to wait a minute. This is common, passengers usually wait until the relief driver is seated before embarking. The Black guy starts insisting on boarding the bus. Vince, the driver again asks the guy to wait. The Black guy says he has heavy bags and needs to get on. Vince reluctantly gets off the bus to let the guy pass. The guy gets on and puts his duffle bag down on a seat and says, "You stupid mf! You did that on purpose! You're a Mexican! Mexicans hate Black people! I lived in Arizona and all the Mexicans hate Blacks!"

    It went on and on and a Black girl next to me called her friend and was giving a blow by blow about it and said, "This ni&&@$ crazy!"

    My Black co-worker, riding with me also felt the ni&&@ was crazy! So did I!

    Mexicans hate Black people!

    The liberal media portrays it as a massive win but it is not. To explain who the Democrats elected. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to Blanca (born in Puerto Rico) and Sergio Ocasio-Cortez. Her mother is born in Puerto Rico and her father is born in New York City. Both of them identified as white Hispanic. In 1993 the family moved from Bronx to very white Yorktown, about 45 minutes from Manhattan. Her father (an architect) had his business in Bronx but that was her only connection as most of her relatives actually live in Yorktown, Bergen County and other very white suburbs to New York City. You can learn a lot with the help of Google.

    Crowley won three terms (6 years) from his district. If his constituents were that fanatically anti-white, how did he get elected to begin with?

    It appears that Crowley skipped both primary debates. See below.

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/6/26/17506970/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-joe-crowley-primary-new-york

    She had some help from a major Crowley misstep — he sent a surrogate to a primary debate, which led to a scathing editorial from the New York Times. “This is the second primary debate in which Mr. Crowley was a no-show. A spokeswoman for Mr. Crowley said he had scheduling conflicts that wouldn’t allow him to attend the two debates, inevitably leaving voters to wonder — what are we, chopped liver?” the editorial read.

     

    It's pretty remarkable that he would skip his own primary debates.

    His children didn't go to school in the district. According to one local paper, even he didn't actually live in his own district (he disputes this).

    I'll add one final point. He was a moderate Democrat with strong ties to Wall Street and the real estate industry. She started her career as a hard-left community organizer. Which individual is likely more in touch with the district's constituents?

    Given that it’s half Hispanic/half immigrant, and given current year atomizing tech and the proliferation of individualized news sources, I gotta wonder if the NY Times editorial _had any effect at all_. I mean, please, it’s not 1977 with political junkies drinking coffee smoking cigarettes and poring over the papers of a Sunday morning, the sound of Billy Joel off in the distance through the tenement alley.

    The family was by no means poor or working class but rather solid middle class. Her father died (cancer) in 2008 and the family fought with government over his business. At that time Alexandra studied economics and international relations at Boston College. In college she was involved in leftist politics like so many students. She briefly volunteered for Ted Kennedy. After she graduated in 2011 she moved to Bronx and waitressed for a year (not really uncommon) until she found work at National Hispanic Institute as an educator and later Educational director. In 2012 (at age 23) she founded a leftist publishing company called Brook Avenue Press. She has occasionally bar-tendered at hipsters bars owned by her friends. In 2016 she co-produced an independent film called “The road to standing rock”, which is a leftist activist documentary about Dakota Access Pipeline protests. The same year she also volunteered for Bernie Sanders as an organizer in the 14th district in 2016.

    Since she graduated from college she also made a lot of friends including New York Hollywood celebrities, politicians, millionaire progressive donors, civil-rights lawyers, independent filmmakers and journalists. She has a a enormous amount of leftist millennial activist friends. After Berne Sanders failed to win the primary Alexandria and her friends (most of them are white liberals from middle class families from the suburbs) noted that they could take down Joseph Crowley, a career politicians that had been a full-time politician since 1987 and more or less owned the 14th district since 1999.

    Like most arrogant career politicians he did not see this coming. The Democratic Party had set up all local democratic and leftist organizations for him. However, Alexandria and her friends circumnavigated these organizations through their network of friends (mostly Sander supporters, activists, celebrities and journalists), social media, and harsh political rhetoric.

    Liberal media describes her as some dirt poor and brownish Puerto Rican. She is not. It is just show. She has no Spanish dialect and use make up to look darker than she actually is. None of her political positions are really radical. You get the same politics from the left-wing of the Democratic Party and some of her positions (in particular on the welfare state) have been policy in Europe since the 1930s. The difference is just that she frame her fairly mainstream political views with identity politics, feminism, environmentalism,

    “The liberal media portrays it as a massive win but it is not.”

    It’s a big win. It is hard to see it as anything else. It shows that anybody can win and you don’t need millions of dollars…in fact, you can go up AGAINST millions of dollars and the entrenched establishment and win. It is just a little revolutionary.

    If her election was a scam and just a novelty, so is like every other politician’s in the US for at least the last 50 years. Get over it.

    Nothing this big has happened since Trump won.

    “Liberal media describes her as some dirt poor and brownish Puerto Rican.”

    Whatever. You see what you believe. What are you doing paying attention to the liberal media, anyway?

  204. So te paleocons are shitting themselves along with the demoCritters. All good. Anyway this young eomen will not make a difference, the US is still on a rapid decline, morally, judicially and thank god millitarily. Soon the rabid Empire will be on its last breaths , mainly because the ruling class in the US “dont give a sh’t about povo Americans. You will have you civil war , again, states will secede and the Evil Empire will cease to exist. You dont deserve to exist, you are corrupt, black from the inside, tainted by superstition (religion) and militaristic (Fascist) , your nation deserves to go down in flames.
    A society waging a war on its citizens is a non society.
    You will learn to be humble, to ask the rest of the world for help, which of course we will give, but you must start over, we in Europe had to do that many times. Last time the US helped us, it is maybe time we repay, and help you build a society not just based on egoism and greed.

    Good info, thanks.
    It's amazing how they come up with these congressional districts. The South Bronx and North West Queens...fukkin' corrupt government.

    Maybe. Maybe not so much. Drawing district lines is interesting. From what I can tell, NY state was redistricted after the 2010 census losing 2 congressional districts. The state legislature was split so it went to a panel of federal judges who sent it to a local federal judge who went with a plan by this guy: Nathaniel Persily. E.g. http://www.mcall.com/news/nationworld/pennsylvania/capitol-ideas/mc-nws-stanford-law-professor-pennsylvania-congress-map-20180213-story.html

    In the end I guess there are a lot of compromises, but one more interesting thing is that there’s lots of building —both office and residential, in and around (South & West) that area, so perhaps another Redistricting in 4 years time is inevitable.

    I don’t think —or rather, don’t know enough to think that Crowley had his district redistricted out from under him.

    But after that map came out he must have had some thoughts on what type of opponent could defeat him.

    There was speculation back in 2012 that they would combine his district with that of Bob Turner, a Catholic Republican from Breezy Point who won a special election after Anthony Weiner resigned. Weiner's old district was home to most of the "white ethnics" (Italian, Irish, Jewish and Russian) still left in the city and that would have theoretically given Crowley a Queens only district pulling in more Irish voters from the Rockaways and Italian voters from Howard Beach and Central Queens. Ultimately, the legislature couldn't agree on the map so they had a judge draw the new districts.

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    In her Greenwald interview, AOC makes some intelligent observations on the retrogressive functioning of the political machine in Queens and elsewhere.

    The liberal media portrays it as a massive win but it is not. To explain who the Democrats elected. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to Blanca (born in Puerto Rico) and Sergio Ocasio-Cortez. Her mother is born in Puerto Rico and her father is born in New York City.

And the Palestinians really shouldn’t have said (in Arabic) that they were going to kill as many Israelis as possible before trying to breach the border with hatchets. There’s no dignified way to respond to that, so Israel did what was required.

    Yes they would tolerate it, politics is now all about racial voting blocs. And yes, the left is different to 2012, 2014, even six months ago. To argue that him skipping debates is the reason he lost is laughable, if someone like Maxine Waters was in a coma for 10 years, she would still win elections, and it should be obvious to anyone why this is so.

    I listened to a leading light in the AfD (a moderate German political party) being interviewed on the BBC. He was accused of having a far right immigration policy. In reply, he correctly pointed out that the AfD’s policy is the same as the governing centre-right’s was in the 00s and almost word for word with the centre left’s in the 90s.

    Anyone seeking asylum deserves due process. It's disgusting but hardly shocking that Trump has no regard for it.

    There are only two countries* that border the US: Mexico and Canada. Neither have problems that justify people seeking asylum from them, so “due process” is to point a gun at them and tell them to f*ck off.

    * the tiny, incredibly rare exceptions are when people sneak onto planes directly from incredibly dangerous countries.

    Your version of “due process” is where I break into your house and forcibly enter your wife, but you have to let me finish because, who knows, I may have a good reason.

    Most white Democrats love the idea that white people aren’t welcome.
     
    I am not so sure of that. I read a couple months back that 1/3 of Hillary voters were white working class as opposed to a little over 1/4 of her voters being white, college educated.

    Of the 40 percent of whites who still vote D, I'm guessing 1 in 4 are hard core believers in the cult marx stuff. But I would think half of the whites who vote D don't fit into this category. Anecdotally I have met a few where I live in Missouri. Many democrats here are democrats out of tradition. They still think the democrats are the party of Harry Truman who look out for the working man. The GOP is associated with rich guys at golf clubs. There is still a bit a truth to the latter, but the former is no longer true.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.

    What poll was it recently where Democrats estimated that 44% of Republicans over $250,000 per annum and it is actually 2%?

    That is such a bizarre misconception it needs years of study to understand.

    That result is reported in https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/democrats-are-wrong-about-republicans-republicans-are-wrong-about-democrats/

    They cite Asher and Sood as the source, but I can't find that data.

    The 538 article also cites this paper (which says 38% and 2.2% rather than 44% and 2%): The Parties in Our Heads: Misperceptions about Party Composition and Their Consequences https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/full/10.1086/697253

    I find this section heading interesting: "Parties as Sociopolitical Brands"

    This image serves as a good summary of results and makes clear the misperceptions are on both sides.

    Looking at Table 1, it appears the 538 data source was the 2015 YouGov poll (note all 44% responses from Democrats about Republicans). I was unable to find that poll though. Not sure if it was public. From the paper: "In March 2015, we surveyed 1,000 Americans through YouGov."

    There is more in that paper.

    Figure 2. Those most interested in political news hold the most skewed perceptions. (res: note that the 250k question is a notable exception to that, which intrigues me)

    Nationwide 40 percent of whites still vote dem. Percentages vary per locale. The sooner they realize they are not welcome in the democrat party the better. Hopefully they will vote GOP. But even if they just stay home AND don't vote, it's progress.

    Florida knows this. It is shifting more republican than PA because it has a lot more Latinos. Whites in Florida many of them retired don’t want this. Scott is sometimes ahead of Nelson while in PA Casey is ahead of Barletta and Sherrod Brown is ahead of the Republican in Ohio. Florida and Texas which are growing faster can our save us more than the other states.

    Well, hatred is the usual motive for destroying a thing....and you are OK with Anglo-America being destroyed.....Do you have some other motive?Existential ennui, perhaps?

    I don’t want Anglo-America to be destroyed, but I do recognize that its destruction has a number of benefits. One of them is the wailing and gnashing of teeth of certain disagreeable individuals.

    Maybe we’re getting better election security now under Trump, and the tricks these guys used to protect their VIP’s are failing. The far left wackos should thank Trump and consider supporting him, because under him things are done more fairly. Less freebies, but less bullshit. I think anywhere including the Bronx, that will have a constituency.

    I hate to rain on your parade, Steve, but if white Dems start defecting to the GOP, that'll be a bad thing, because they'll pull the GOP leftwards. Look what happened when white Californians moved in large numbers to Colorado: they turned Colorado blue.

    “if Dems start defecting to the GOP…they’ll pull the GOP leftwards”

    s’truth, but doesn’t matter much: the Grand Old Peds will in any case toddle along in the Dems leftward wake, as they have for the past three decades. They’ll do it because they think that the Whites have no place else to go.

    and the Whites will comply: voting themselves into extinction just as surely by voting Republiscam as voting Demoncrat.

    Let's face it; Democratic Socialists are nothing but bourgeoisie scum. They spring from the Universities, are funded by NGOs and basically swim in the mud and murk of every bourgeois institution to be found in America.

    The true scientific socialist movement of Trumpism-Leninism despises the false history of the Democratic-Socialists and their privileged institutions, and lays its foundations on the struggle of the worker against the Oligarchs, the worker against the corrupt bourgeois institutions of the decaying state, the worker against those who call them deplorables, gun clinging, bible clinging fools.

    This revolution is based on the aspirations of the rednecktariat and it will wipe away the foul, polluted winds of the phony Democratic-Socialist stink to install the dictatorship of middle America.

    Such is to be read in the cards of social history, and so shall it be.

    Social Democracy stems from the “first international” (1863-1877), which were a serious of meetings and debates between socialist, communists and anarchist organizations, parties and intellectuals. Social Democrats argued that the aristocracy and capitalist class could only be overthrown through democratic reform. For them revolution was not an option. By the “second international” (1889-1916) Social Democrats was already working with liberal bourgeoisie, liberal parties and with agrarian parties for “democratic reform”. By the 1900s the Social Democratic efforts resulted in a compromise between the capitalist class, bourgeoisie and the agrarians to share political power. It was centrist statist approach on economics. One of the few exceptions among the Social Democratic parties was the German SPD that turned radical in the late 1890s. By the 1945 almost all Social Democratic parties in Western Europe adopted internationalism, neo-liberalism, Feminism and Western Marxism as their main ideology. They implemented their agenda through slow reform.

    A few years ago major Social Democratic parties in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Moldova, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and United States with withdrew from the “Socialist International” and formed “Progressive Alliance” in 2013. The Progressive Alliance is neo-liberal, post-marxist and internationalist and has little disregard for working class people. It is also controlled by Western parties. All member-parties from second and third world countries are domestically insignificant without any real economical and political power.

    Both Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders are much closer to the Progressive Alliance than the Socialist internationalist. The reason why the Democratic establishment does not like the “left-wing” in their party is because they compete for political seats they rather have for themselves. More so, they talk about special interests although they have no plan do anything about it. As soon as Ocasio-Cortez won she folded on Israel and most of her positions. These “social democrats” are not like Ron Paul that have said the same things (like it or not). Most contemporary socialists and liberals only care about open borders so the first world can be flooded by cheap labour. That is what they really care about. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democratic Party let Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez run for President in 2020.

Basically to convert the socialist into a tail of liberals.

  239. Terrific comment. Having started in the USMC in 60s and finishing in Army Reserves in 21st Century (with a big break after Marines), I worked around thousands of soldiers after 9-11-2001, and feel you shot a bulls eye. The big majority of the US Army infantry are white to include those of mixed Spanish and Northern European origin as well as other Spanish, but even with that, the majority of infantry are of Northern European ancestry.
    Just look at the faces of the dead in Iraq and Afghanistan. All just cannon fodder.

    Race relations are excellent in the Army. Whites and African Americans continue to die while the children of the elites and the majority of the country care nothing and have no idea what is even going on in Afghanistan and the Middle East. Just who does follow the wars in the Mideast and in Southwest Asia?

    Families should wise up and realize that their white and African American sons are dying for a country that cares NOTHING for them. The Pentagon especially during the Obama years was continually looking for ways to prosecute soldiers, Marines, SEALS on flimsy evidence about detainee abuse (following Abu Ghraib all were fair game for Pentagon lawyers).
    In 2008 the 101st Airborne tried to destroy the lives of too many infantry soldiers when a few very concerned officers and a First Sergeant tried to get evidence out of a dozen or so Taliban spies in their midst.

    America cannot win wars because it does not fight to win wars. Career concerns are far more important to politicians and high ranking officers. America will not win in Afghanistan. It is a complete disgrace what has been going on there. Small Green Beret teams achieved great things in 2001-2002 but then everybody wanted in on the latest war. One would think that these wars are just sporting events with the participants in the killing field being the dedicated and often jobless sons of the masses who mean nothing to the “elites” who are just lazy trash and run things.

    There is a lot of dirt going on behind the scenes. In the US Army we see those of different nationalities as brothers and I cringed when men died because they were too young and inexperienced to know that they were just being used by the power structures that cared NOTHING about them. Obama, Clinton, Ashton Carter, and the whole lot of them didn’t give a damn about any of the suffering that went on. The “war” was a charade.

    Also, look how far ISIS advanced before our asleep-on-the-job leaders took notice. I am led to believe that if it were not for Iran, Russia, Assad’s troops of Syria, and a rejuvenated Iraq, that ISIS would have owned Syria years ago. How long did our President and Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State wait before the USA realized ISIS was not a “jayvee” team.

    But it doesn’t change. These naive believers in “America” will still graduate from West Point and Annapolis, and whites and African Americans will still sign up in large numbers while the politicians and perfumed princes in the Pentagon and those generals running Divisions will still care far more about their careers than any of those young men out in the killing zone.

    The liberal media portrays it as a massive win but it is not. To explain who the Democrats elected. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to Blanca (born in Puerto Rico) and Sergio Ocasio-Cortez. Her mother is born in Puerto Rico and her father is born in New York City. Both of them identified as white Hispanic. In 1993 the family moved from Bronx to very white Yorktown, about 45 minutes from Manhattan. Her father (an architect) had his business in Bronx but that was her only connection as most of her relatives actually live in Yorktown, Bergen County and other very white suburbs to New York City. You can learn a lot with the help of Google.

    The family was by no means poor or working class but rather solid middle class. Her father died (cancer) in 2008 and the family fought with government over his business. At that time Alexandra studied economics and international relations at Boston College. In college she was involved in leftist politics like so many students. She briefly volunteered for Ted Kennedy. After she graduated in 2011 she moved to Bronx and waitressed for a year (not really uncommon) until she found work at National Hispanic Institute as an educator and later Educational director. In 2012 (at age 23) she founded a leftist publishing company called Brook Avenue Press. She has occasionally bar-tendered at hipsters bars owned by her friends. In 2016 she co-produced an independent film called “The road to standing rock”, which is a leftist activist documentary about Dakota Access Pipeline protests. The same year she also volunteered for Bernie Sanders as an organizer in the 14th district in 2016.

    Since she graduated from college she also made a lot of friends including New York Hollywood celebrities, politicians, millionaire progressive donors, civil-rights lawyers, independent filmmakers and journalists. She has a a enormous amount of leftist millennial activist friends. After Berne Sanders failed to win the primary Alexandria and her friends (most of them are white liberals from middle class families from the suburbs) noted that they could take down Joseph Crowley, a career politicians that had been a full-time politician since 1987 and more or less owned the 14th district since 1999.

    Like most arrogant career politicians he did not see this coming. The Democratic Party had set up all local democratic and leftist organizations for him. However, Alexandria and her friends circumnavigated these organizations through their network of friends (mostly Sander supporters, activists, celebrities and journalists), social media, and harsh political rhetoric.

    Liberal media describes her as some dirt poor and brownish Puerto Rican. She is not. It is just show. She has no Spanish dialect and use make up to look darker than she actually is. None of her political positions are really radical. You get the same politics from the left-wing of the Democratic Party and some of her positions (in particular on the welfare state) have been policy in Europe since the 1930s. The difference is just that she frame her fairly mainstream political views with identity politics, feminism, environmentalism,

    “Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was born in 1989 to Blanca (born in Puerto Rico) and Sergio Ocasio-Cortez. Her mother is born in Puerto Rico and her father is born in New York City. Both of them identified as white Hispanic.”

    They did? Wow: I thought there was no such thing as a “white Hispanic” until the cultural anthropologists at NBC News identified George Zimmerman as such, after his bout with Trayvon “Skittles” Martin.

    This she-socialist has the same value as a candidate as Auntie Maxine Waters offers as a sitting Congresswoman.

    Maybe. Maybe not so much. Drawing district lines is interesting. From what I can tell, NY state was redistricted after the 2010 census losing 2 congressional districts. The state legislature was split so it went to a panel of federal judges who sent it to a local federal judge who went with a plan by this guy: Nathaniel Persily. E.g. http://www.mcall.com/news/nationworld/pennsylvania/capitol-ideas/mc-nws-stanford-law-professor-pennsylvania-congress-map-20180213-story.html

    In the end I guess there are a lot of compromises, but one more interesting thing is that there’s lots of building —both office and residential, in and around (South & West) that area, so perhaps another Redistricting in 4 years time is inevitable.

    I don’t think —or rather, don’t know enough to think that Crowley had his district redistricted out from under him.

    But after that map came out he must have had some thoughts on what type of opponent could defeat him.

    There was speculation back in 2012 that they would combine his district with that of Bob Turner, a Catholic Republican from Breezy Point who won a special election after Anthony Weiner resigned. Weiner’s old district was home to most of the “white ethnics” (Italian, Irish, Jewish and Russian) still left in the city and that would have theoretically given Crowley a Queens only district pulling in more Irish voters from the Rockaways and Italian voters from Howard Beach and Central Queens. Ultimately, the legislature couldn’t agree on the map so they had a judge draw the new districts.

    Racially charged incident happened on the bus on my way home this afternoon. We were at a stop waiting for our driver to hand the bus to another driver. The previous driver always gives info to the driver taking over, about traffic, the bus's handling, etc. So both drivers were talking as the Black female driver gathered her belongings to exit the bus. A Black guy tried to come up the bus steps. The relief driver, standing on the steps and who is a Latino with a heavy accent tells the guy that they are changing drivers and asks him to wait a minute. This is common, passengers usually wait until the relief driver is seated before embarking. The Black guy starts insisting on boarding the bus. Vince, the driver again asks the guy to wait. The Black guy says he has heavy bags and needs to get on. Vince reluctantly gets off the bus to let the guy pass. The guy gets on and puts his duffle bag down on a seat and says, "You stupid mf! You did that on purpose! You're a Mexican! Mexicans hate Black people! I lived in Arizona and all the Mexicans hate Blacks!"

    It went on and on and a Black girl next to me called her friend and was giving a blow by blow about it and said, "This ni&&@$ crazy!"

    My Black co-worker, riding with me also felt the ni&&@ was crazy! So did I!

    Was pumping gas today at busy hour, everyone jockeying to get gas, when a black guy pulled up, rap blaring, and parked on the other side of the gas island. As he walked through the island, he says “you bess not back into me,” then I see the car backing up come into view. It keeps backing up, and without having taken a step to avoid his possible fate or altering his stride one iota, the black raps on the tail light of the vehicle as he walks past. A lot of Blacks are just flat out of their minds. If he thinks being strapped or whatever is his trump card, he’s 2x nuts; a LOT of people here carry concealed (you can keep a handgun in your glove box, sans permit) and would be more than happy to give an assailant a lead salad.

If you are a working class person, it doesn't matter whether you are white, brown, black, red or, yellow, you had better vote something other than republican. The republican party has since the 80s destroyed the labor unions in America. They successfully divide us over issues which we should all be united on, they have stagnated wages for the past 50 years, wrecked our education and health systems and will continue to do so. If you think the wealthy are our friends your wrong.

    The unions could’ve tried not being lockstep leftists or corrupt as all getout. That’s too big a stretch for the lazy corrupt bastards, though.

    What poll was it recently where Democrats estimated that 44% of Republicans over $250,000 per annum and it is actually 2%?

    That is such a bizarre misconception it needs years of study to understand.

    Blacks are 13% of the population and around 90% Democrat. Latinos are God knows what % (At least 20) and 60-70% Democrat. Those are the two dumbest large demographics in the US right there, and a huge chunk of Democrat voters. It doesn’t really take a complicated explanation – huge swathes of Democrats are stupid, functionally illiterate, functionally innumerate, and almost entirely ignorant of anything outside popular entertainment.

    Her campaign slogan was literally “It’s Time For One of US” and used the hashtag #ONEOFUS.

    Crowley lost Archie Bunker's Old Neighborhood. Archie Bunker's fictional Astoria address was in New York’s 14th Congressional District . The houses that were shown in the opening credits of the show; however, were actually in Glendale, Queens.

    Woodside Queens, where Crowley supposedly lived, was for a long time far and away the most Irish neighborhood in the city (apparently around 80% in the 1930s). Go there today and its a mix of East Asians, South Americans and people from the Indian subcontinent although there is still a much truncated Irish presence left over from immigrants who came over in the 80s and early 90s.

    Most of the radical left wing democrats have their roots in the Irish American community. These old white guys like Crowley vote more left wing than his Marxist successor. They do as exactly as they are told by he party leaders. Most of them went to catholic school but they vote for all the anti life and anti family issues that their party pushes. It will not be long before the Irish American whiskey drinkers are replaced in the big cities by the people they champion. It is a good schadenfreude to see these old white haired crooks thrown on the trash heap as history passes them and be replaced by the new Americans that they have brought into the country. Joe Biden the leader of the old white headed Irish perverts really thinks that he has a chance to be elected president, har har what a moron!

    Crowley lost because the centrist Dem. party leadership does not represent anybody except financiers and lawyers, and the people have figured it out. This is democracy. It has little to do with race.

    Funny how benefits that actual people want and need are always freebies to you lot whereas a trillion dollars a year fighting every foreigner's civil war is... what?

    If we sailed all our aircraft carriers into the middle of the Atlantic and sunk them, and spent the money on free healthcare and free education, we would be more safe, more prosperous, and more free.

    You are right, of course, but that won’t happen. Simply because it would be in the interests of ~99% of Americans, but now the 1% that wholly owns the government. The greedy sleazy 1%, including fat Pentagon contractors, wants to steal more and doesn’t give a hoot about safety, prosperity, or even the survival of the country. The oligarchs are the ultimate traitors in every country.

    Your post reminded me of an Irish guy who affected my career at my place of employment for 30 years.
    I was a young pup looking to better my position when I left a perfectly good job with the ‘electric company’ to go to a great gov’mint colossus. Whell the guy from ‘human resources’ had to negotiate a salary and he lowballed me by a friggin thousand dollars. Now I don’t even remember his name but he was Eye-rish and probably a bleeding heart liberal, he was a human resources guy after all, but not when it came to negotiating with a naïve young dork like me. That left a bad memory that lasted until I left 30 years later, damn the Irish! (Grin)

    There was speculation back in 2012 that they would combine his district with that of Bob Turner, a Catholic Republican from Breezy Point who won a special election after Anthony Weiner resigned. Weiner's old district was home to most of the "white ethnics" (Italian, Irish, Jewish and Russian) still left in the city and that would have theoretically given Crowley a Queens only district pulling in more Irish voters from the Rockaways and Italian voters from Howard Beach and Central Queens. Ultimately, the legislature couldn't agree on the map so they had a judge draw the new districts.

    Yeah like I said before what a cockamamie district drawn up by incompetents or corrupt politicians or both.

    Why do we allow people like this - who certainly appear to be 100% Spanish ancestry - to claim the mantle of being 'of color'? Obviously a fair number of people from Mexico have Amerindian ancestry, but it seems stupid to play along with the left's strategy of self-otherizing to ensure this particular block of voters thinks of themselves as it's own racial class and voting accordingly.

    She’s clearly mixed with black and perhaps Arab that came to the shores from Southern Spain. Although, you’re point is a valid one–the fact is, white women largely voted to give us the mantle of “people of color”…and we took it and ran with it. Including Affirmative Action (for legals and illegals who come from Latin American countries that have NO history of oppression from white Americans)

    Eventually, white Hispanics will run the Republican party, as mixing continues and you will have a Left party of blacks and browns, and white party of whites and mostly whites. Think Junior High lunchroom.

    Social Democracy stems from the “first international” (1863-1877), which were a serious of meetings and debates between socialist, communists and anarchist organizations, parties and intellectuals. Social Democrats argued that the aristocracy and capitalist class could only be overthrown through democratic reform. For them revolution was not an option. By the “second international” (1889-1916) Social Democrats was already working with liberal bourgeoisie, liberal parties and with agrarian parties for “democratic reform”. By the 1900s the Social Democratic efforts resulted in a compromise between the capitalist class, bourgeoisie and the agrarians to share political power. It was centrist statist approach on economics. One of the few exceptions among the Social Democratic parties was the German SPD that turned radical in the late 1890s. By the 1945 almost all Social Democratic parties in Western Europe adopted internationalism, neo-liberalism, Feminism and Western Marxism as their main ideology. They implemented their agenda through slow reform.

    A few years ago major Social Democratic parties in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Moldova, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and United States with withdrew from the “Socialist International” and formed “Progressive Alliance” in 2013. The Progressive Alliance is neo-liberal, post-marxist and internationalist and has little disregard for working class people. It is also controlled by Western parties. All member-parties from second and third world countries are domestically insignificant without any real economical and political power.

    Both Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders are much closer to the Progressive Alliance than the Socialist internationalist. The reason why the Democratic establishment does not like the “left-wing” in their party is because they compete for political seats they rather have for themselves. More so, they talk about special interests although they have no plan do anything about it. As soon as Ocasio-Cortez won she folded on Israel and most of her positions. These “social democrats” are not like Ron Paul that have said the same things (like it or not). Most contemporary socialists and liberals only care about open borders so the first world can be flooded by cheap labour. That is what they really care about. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democratic Party let Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez run for President in 2020.

    Yes, thank you for that history.
    What I see in Sanders and the likes is a corrupted and vulgarized Marxism, that preaches a toned down version of class conflict in substitite for racial and lgbt rights, and declares the idea of a social revolution and a dictatorship of the working man (middle America) to be absurd, and adopts to a “practical” struggle for petty, gradual reforms, mostly onto opioids. Basically to convert the socialist into a tail of liberals.
    Ha.
    Just trying to adapt Lenin’s critique of the social democrats to the sellout of America’s working man. Similar situation.

    There are 9 US embassies between the US border and Guatemala which is the farthest country this crop of immigrants came from.
    "Due process' means applying to the nearest US embassy to claim 'political asylum'.... which is what the majority of them are claiming.
    Why don't they do this?
    Because most of them are not victims of violence or political persecution...they are 'economic' border jumpers....and you cant go to a embassy and ask for a US visa just because you are poor or want a better job.
    They avoid 'Due Process' because 'the immigration laws' wont give them the entry into the US that they want.
    So they 'violate' US immigration law.
    So much for "Due Process".
    And who the barbarians are.

    Puerto Rico is a fine, proud, accomplished place.
    We should honor them by granting them independence.
    No need for those Anglos to remain paternalistic.
    And require all Puerto Ricans to show their loyalty to their beloved, glorious homeland by holding only Puerto Rican citizenship.

    OT
    but always relevant
    Check out the analysis and news at fight white genocide dot com. Of course no need for spaces when typing that. Some encouraging stuff there. And focused logical thought that gets right to the point. Cheers!

    Puerto Rico is a messed up situation .
    Its status makes no sense.
    Puerto Ricans are US citizens but pay no US income tax…they pay a income tax to Puerto Rico……they do however pay into US SS and Medicare. They do also have a welfare system funded by both Puerto Rico and the US.
    In addition Puerto Rico is dead broke and billons in debt and was even before the hurricane crisis.

    There are 9 US embassies between the US border and Guatemala which is the farthest country this crop of immigrants came from.
    “Due process’ means applying to the nearest US embassy to claim ‘political asylum’…. which is what the majority of them are claiming.
    Why don’t they do this?
    Because most of them are not victims of violence or political persecution…they are ‘economic’ border jumpers….and you cant go to a embassy and ask for a US visa just because you are poor or want a better job.
    They avoid ‘Due Process’ because ‘the immigration laws’ wont give them the entry into the US that they want.
    So they ‘violate’ US immigration law.
    So much for “Due Process”.
    And who the barbarians are.

    Politically they have not realized that the world is changing from left-right, democrat-republican into more of a globalist-nationalist divide and of course a tribal divide.
     
    Another good comment, iStevefan.

    Perhaps because I’ve been frequenting this site for so long, the above observation seems absolutely obvious to me. It’s not just about the macro level of political parties, but about the disaggregation of the old Cold War political coalitions, and their recombination into something new; the idea that a person you considered an adversary yesterday may be an ally tomorrow.

    What’s amazing to me as I talk about this with Liberals is how they are utterly unaware of the development. They seem to believe they’ve got a lock on the old Truman-voting party, and have merely expanded it—*without cost*—to their ascendant coalition of the fringes. It’s a real delusion, evidenced by the incredulity of elite Liberals when they receive an electoral rebuke.

    What’s amazing to me as I talk about this with Liberals is how they are utterly unaware of the development.

    Since they only read legacy media news they are unaware of many developments. I had a conversation with somebody the other day who was completely unaware that there has been considerable electoral pushback against “migration” and multicult in Denmark, Austria, Italy, Poland and Hungary. I couldn’t blame him too much — there’s a nearly total news blackout on the subject in the media he consumes.

Reportedly a third of the public sides with the Palestinians but you’d never know it from listening to our politicians and journalists. Her agenda sounds good to me as an elderly poor guy. Since college today is what high school used to be the tuition should be free until we get it together to create standardized online college-credit exams, thereby taking down the professoriat a couple pegs. $15 an hour isn’t that much to ask. Free health care is favored by most people already, since it’s not your fault if you get sick (in general.) As for other people’s tax money, who takes that free-market Horatio Alger BS seriously at this point? The rich are doing just fine. And we spend literally trillions fighting dumb wars for Israel and the defense industry. We could provide all the benefits Ocasio-Cortez wants right out of the defense budget. We have no serious enemies now that the Soviet Union is gone and Russia is a Christian nation, though the neocons are trying desperately to make the US into the new Soviet Union.

    Can you say "President Ocasio-Cortez"??

    Insurgent Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to take her budding political career all the way to The White House, her mother told The Post on Wednesday.

    “Her aspiration is to be the president,” Blanca Ocasio-Cortez, 55, said at the candidate’s childhood home in the Bronx.

    “She has been thinking about politics since she was a teenager. She would read historical and political books old and new. She would engage in political discussions passionately.”

    Crowley was an unfailing protege of a classic big city machine boss pol named Thomas Manton, who had the seat before Crowley. Under a Dem machine system, that kind of sycophancy had value. When Bill Clinton talked about Barack Obama cutting the line and how he should have been fetching his elders coffee, this is what he was talking about, not anything racist, merely paying your dues. Manton so liked Crowley he retired outside of an election cycle to let Crowley run in a Dem primary before anyone who could beat him had the chance to mount a campaign. In the past, the machine would crush an opponent in primaries, but no more. Manton had replaced Donald Manes as Queens county Dem boss of the machine when Manes ran into trouble and committed suicide.

    I worked a special election (no parties, so no automatic Democrat votes) in the 21st Council District running against one of Crowley’s favorite proteges, Francisco Moya. The Moyas call themselves ‘the Kennedys of Corona,’ but things have changed.

    We stomped them. Crowley’s ‘machine’ consisted of a few lawyers in a Nassau County law firm. They had no ground game, and even though Moya is Ecuadorian, their Spanish lit was riddled with errors. But the whole time everyone was telling us we had no chance.

    Sad that whites don’t have a fighter like her representing them. Only corrupt fake Jew worshiping sellouts. That only talk. Honestly, I’d consider voting for this girl over most of the white trash we have in congress today. Sad!
    How many republicans are standing up to Wall St? Daring to call out the banks? Calling out Christian murdering Israel? the evil bastards that killed 3000 on 9/11. The endless needless wars that have killed thousands if not millions of Christians? How many establishment Democrats can you name? Very very few. The Republicans and Democrats are OWNED by the same billionaires, with the same agendas. Adelson is president if you haven’t noticed, not Trump. The MIC – Wall St is getting everything they could ever want. 21 trillion in the hole now, somebody’s gotta pay, won’t be the rich!

    What poll was it recently where Democrats estimated that 44% of Republicans over $250,000 per annum and it is actually 2%?

    That is such a bizarre misconception it needs years of study to understand.

    That result is reported in https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/democrats-are-wrong-about-republicans-republicans-are-wrong-about-democrats/

    They cite Asher and Sood as the source, but I can’t find that data.

    The 538 article also cites this paper (which says 38% and 2.2% rather than 44% and 2%): The Parties in Our Heads: Misperceptions about Party Composition and Their Consequences https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/full/10.1086/697253

    I find this section heading interesting: “Parties as Sociopolitical Brands”

    This image serves as a good summary of results and makes clear the misperceptions are on both sides.

    Looking at Table 1, it appears the 538 data source was the 2015 YouGov poll (note all 44% responses from Democrats about Republicans). I was unable to find that poll though. Not sure if it was public. From the paper: “In March 2015, we surveyed 1,000 Americans through YouGov.”

    There is more in that paper.

    Figure 2. Those most interested in political news hold the most skewed perceptions. (res: note that the 250k question is a notable exception to that, which intrigues me)

    Table 2. Bias Due to Expressive Responding, Innumeracy, and Poor Knowledge of Base Rates Is Likely Small

    Figure 4. Misperceptions cause people to dislike the out-party.

    Figure 5. Misperceptions cause people to feel socially distant from out-party supporters.
