  2. In some Italian neighborhoods of Olde New-York, a passing WASP would sometimes earn the hex of the “finger horns” for untoward behavior. On the modern day Upper West Side, along West End Avenue and Riverside Drive, take great caution, Steven. For if the denizens know that you are passing through, you will be pelted with moldy, crusted onion bagels, thrown at you by distraught Hillary supporters . . .

    Earth to Rachel, Trump got more than one of Maine’s electoral votes. Point of fact, he won 3o states and all their electoral votes, outright. On the Upper West Side, they take their cream cheese kosher and straight. They get sick if they’re forced to eat mascarpone.

    D'Souza earned my added respect with a tweet after the Florida legislature rejected a gun-grabbing initiative in the wake of the Lakeland shootings.

    From Heavy.com:

    "Florida state lawmakers voted down a ban on assault weapons less than a week after 17 people were killed during a rampage at a Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida. When the ban didn’t pass, D’Souza shared a photo of the survivors’ horrified reactions with the caption

    “Worst news since their parents told them to get summer jobs...

    D’Souza ... has been denounced by the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an annual event that D’Souza has spoken at several times, according to The Wrap.”

    Anybody denounced by the cucks at CPAC can't be all bad.

    If received opinion dictates that moderate sensible proven things are extreme, don’t be surpised when moderate sensible people end up in the company of extremists. Not that I recognise your implication that those four people are extremists…

    Marion Le Pen and Nigel Farage are not conservatives at all. They are radicals in the sense that they want radical change in their country’s immigration laws and favoring non White immigrants over White natives.

    That’s radicalism now days. From Goldwater and the John Birch Society to the present day conservatives have done nothing to help Whites.

    And they have lost every cultural fight. Gays went from decriminalization to gay marriage and common bathrooms. Abortion is the law of the land fewer and fewer people are getting married, feral thugs rule the schools and the judges enabled the rule of feral thugs in schools.

    TV and culture are just ghetto. The schools and universities preach hatred and denigration of Whites. They might as well be clergy preaching against the devil on Sunday. But they preach it every day to kids from pre school to PHD.

    I vaguely remember the great conservative hope Goldwater. He lost. Eisenhower wasn’t a conservative. He desegregated the schools and unleashed a reign of terror on White kids and students.

    Conservatives have lost every cultural political and fiscal fight. A conspiracy theorist might think they are controlled opposition meant to lose.

    I’ll always vote for Republican presidents because the liberals who hate Republicans also hate me. And it’s fun to watch them have their tantrums when Republicans win.

    Conservatives have never done a thing for Whites. The 1920’s immigration restrictions were enacted due to labor union liberal activists.

    Being pro White native and opposed to non White immigration as Farage and Le Pen are, is far out radical, not conservative.

    I have his 1999 bio of Reagan on cassette tape (speaking of obsolete platforms). I forget the name of the audio book reader but it's probably better for not being delivered in D'Souza's measured, nasal-Spock-register accent: the combo of flowery Bamonn/Ivy-League prose with the cheesy Marlboro Man voice is nearly perfect.

    Dunno if I should trust D'Souza's quoting -- he's a one-man Snopes machines, recently someone here mentioning his misattribution of George Forman's manager to Muhammad Ali -- but I remember it opens with contemporaneous conservatives like George F. Will and Pat Buchanan slamming RR ("The man needs a brain transplant" --Pat). How would we manage without our own Brahmins, eh

    According to Unz and his metrics, you have posted more than 14,000 times on this site.
    I am guessing you are in your 30s. If you have half a century or more still to live, for the love of God, man, stop saying stupid things, stop being one of the most obviously dull persons on the comment threads you say your stupid things on.
    This is a free speech site so people expect people to say stupid things, and they ignore it, but - and I only say this for your own good, little s(v)igor, apparently almost nobody else around here cares about you and your pride in your foolishness enough to help you out, so they haven't said it - but I want you to be better - and God wants that too, you know -- if you think all Christians sound the same, or all Jews sound the same, and you do not have the self-awareness to know how stupid you sound to most people when you tell people what you think you really think: take a break. Read some new books. Make some new friends. Get off the internet for a few months or years, if you have to. Get spiritual guidance. Stop putting so much effort into making people who sound like you seem stupid.

    Don't get mad at my well intentioned advice, nobody will read this comment and care about it except you. Feel free to vent off a little frustration that nobody has given you such good advice before: today is the first day of the rest of your life, and I can tell you in advance that I won't be offended. I have given better advice to worse people than you, often!
    Good luck, my friend!

    Interesting observation, except none of them were ever elected to any office. In fact, I don't recall any of them ever running for a political office or even a position in a political party. How does one define leadership? Or are we measuring notoriety?

    Buckley and the gang from National Review synthesized the foundational principles of post war American conservativism. Goldwater, Reagan and many others (mostly westerners) became the elected standard bearers. Even John McMain. A review of the politics espoused by Congressman McCain demonstrates a fealty to Reaganism that stands in stark contrast to the growth in office of Senator John McCain. One almost wonders how they can be the same person.

    I suppose we can argue about the influence of neo conservatives from the late 1970s to about 2008. That's a historical discussion. Conservatism is, as should any dynamic philosophy, adapting and evolving. Rather than the editorial pages of the Weekly Standard, we should look to the men and women who have been elected, as the revealed preference of the movement.

    I don't consider conservative principles to be old and stale. But one would have to be an impractical fool to disregard the actuality before one's eyes. Practical politics has over driven the headlights of political philosophy and its's up to those who lay claim to intellectual leadership to examine things as they are.

    Instead we have an estate of clergy excommunicating voters and politicians for the heresy of winning and exercising political power.

    D'Souza had a choice early in his career.

    He could have a serious scholar with political bent, like Thomas Sowell.

    Or he could a partisan polemicist cooking up clever arguments to score points in the Current Year. He opted for the latter.

    A book like END OF RACISM is at least provocative on the intellectual level. And his youthful criticism of multi-culturalism had much of merit.

    And his take on 9/11 had some counter-intuitive merit. Though he overstated how most Muslims could be conservative allies of Western conservatives at war with Liberal decadence, it had something more to offer than "Muslim world needs western freedom and democracy."

    But his recent narratives are just silly. It's basically "Democrats are the real racist" over and over and over.

    Recently, there was a ocumentary called Best of Enemies about Buckley and Vidal. It was pretty good. One thing that struck out was how iconic both of them were. I thought Buckley was thin as a thinker and even thinner as a fiction writer(of silly spinoff of 007), but he had magnetism and charm. Later, I think he smoked too much pot and got a bit dull, but what spark he had in the 60s. He led the movement not through power of ideas but power of personality... much like John F. Kennedy did. Buckley was like camelot for the Conservative movement. He gave it sex appeal and a sense of sophistication and hipness.
    Vidal had great presence too as a cultural personality. And unlike today's MILO who only knows trash culture, Vidal knew everything from pop to art history. And he was a terrific writer and great wit. He sure got the best of Buckley and Mailer(who once punched him out, whereas Buckley only threatened to).

    I think the advantage Buckley and Vidal had was that they grew up in the pre-TV era, so their sensibility came from books and manners. In contrast, the personalities that came to prominence since the TV era of libertine-ism lack style and grace because the new mode of expression was to just blurt everything out. And internet made it even more so.

    The cool medium of the TV came to favor the image. Warhol was certainly aware of what was up. Even though his stuff was called Pop Art, it was more a Neo-Icon 'Art'. For a long while, Western Art was heavily iconographic of great pagan gods and heroes, great leaders, and later Jesus and Jesus and more Jesus. But with the rise of romanticism, nature was favored. Realism favored the world as is. Impressionism dissolved the image. Expressionism and surrealism warped the image, and abstract painting and action painting deconstructed forms. In the high arts, the trend was toward iconoclasm of conventions and forms.
    But the human mind naturally craves icons, the encapsulation or symbolization of perfect forms: an individual that represents the aspiration toward perfection among misshapen humanity or an image of a moment as eternity, such a the iconic image of Che Guevara that just went crazy. Warhol's factory was a maker and destroyer of icons, a very decadent enterprise because it was icon for icon's sake with no other meaning except to be famous or notorious(even if only with one another, which made it incestuous). Warhol didn't have the looks or charisma to be an icon yet become an icon for those very anti-iconic values: the eccentric puppeteer, rather like the John Hurt character in THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND, a movie about a intelligence officer with no iconic value who recruits a TV news icon to serve as his patsy-proxy.

    Most intellectuals and pundits don't have iconic value. And that's perhaps why so many of the above-mentioned Neocons attached themselves to William Buckley who had the style and personality to become a household name. They needed his image; he needed their brains as he didn't have too many ideas of his own. Though Buckley was obviously smart and sharp, he was just not a thinker type. His main instinct was defender-of-privilege-and-order. He was about stepping on the brake but never the accelerator. But in the end, the accelerator wins because while the brakes can momentarily halt the car, it cannot make the car go in reverse. And because Buckley didn't know how to go forward, he was probably drawn to Neocons who offered an idea for the future of conservatism. They would step on the accelerator than the brakes but steer history in a different direction... which turned out to be Wars for Israel and a new stupid cold war with Russia.

    This icon business in politics wouldn't have been out-of-control if not for the TV. The TV made it matter. Oliver Stone was onto something when his Nixon is haunted by JFK. Not so much because JFK beat him and was tragically assassinated. JFK has iconic value. He was Camelot. He made even a damn Cuban weep over his death. "People look at you and they see who they want to be. They look at me and they see what they are."
    NIXON is a fascinating as a study of the least iconic president in conflict with so many iconic forces. The ghost of Kennedy, the icon-drive counterculture, the Black radical, Mao the icon of tyrant-as-liberator, etc. Nixon didn't have star power, and his support came from the 'silent majority', a bunch of humdrum nobodies, the archies and edith bunkers of the world. 60s was the era of Kennedy, Che, Muhammad Ali, MLK, Malcolm X, Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Warhol, Robert Kennedy who shot to stardom in 68 before being shot, and etc. The Right, in contrast, didn't have many icons. There was Buckley. There was John Wayne, to be sure, but he belonged to the past. Now, Nixon-Elvis alliance, that was weird. Elvis' influence had a big role in the rise of Rock music, but he was also deeply conservative and hated flag-burning hippies.

    In the age of icons, a side that fails to create icons is bound to lose out. But then, the demise of the Factory is a warning to how dangerous iconism can be as it fosters decadence, excess, style over substance, image over the thing, hype over the human. And we are seeing some of the demise today with 50 genders where everyone wants to be a STAR. It sure didn't work out for Edie. But then, the icon has a life of its own. Even though Elvis and Michael Jackson died most pathetically, their iconic power just kept on living, and their fans never gave up.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciao!_Manhattan

    It's generally true that film directors don't have the Look. So, they need to form a partnership with actors with iconic value. Ford and Wayne. Kurosawa and Mifune. Kazan and Brando.

    And this is true of the world of ideas as well. In HAIL CAESAR, all those intellectuals and writers don't have the magic. They are well-read and well-versed, but they can't win over anyone with their looks or style. But then, there is the actor in the musical, very good-looking, has the moves, and so flashy. Intellectually, he is below their league, but as a face and presence, he has star power. (On the other hand, if he's going to see Stalin, good luck with that. Better sacrifice the goy than one of the Tribe.) For neocons, Buckley was useful in this way. And for Liberal Zionists, Obama was useful this way.

    Trump... what is he? It seems his shtick is just Ican, or I CAN do it cuz I do things bigly. He's too big and too small to be an icon. Weird.

    Actually Sarah Palin is more than smart enough, and articulate enough, to advance the interest of Americans. When you think of "outstandingly smart" I am sure you are thinking of Nancy Pelosi, just two heartbeats away from being president herself during the late Bush, and early Obama, administrations, right Dan? I'll bet you think Fish Baiter Ginsburg is a shining example of a woman who is "smart enough."

    Idiots like you that believe that we have been served well by those who are "outstandingly smart" are the reason obvious truths cannot be spoken. No doubt the smartest woman on the planet, Hillary Hot Rod Ham Clinton, is your patron saint.

    Sarah Palin took on the corrupt Alaska Republican party - against her own interests - because it was the right thing to do. And you denigrate her, because you think an IQ test is more important than the moral courage she exhibited. Even though Palin has more useful knowledge than the aggregate knowledge of not just Democrat women, but all Democrats.

    That's great Dan - what we need is more failed leadership from the Harvard/Yale crowd, and less from the University of Idaho grads, right bro?

    None of these things are like any of the others, and it doesn't take much surface scratching to understand. The only thing they happen to have in common is that none of them are Jewish.

    I assume Jews don't like seeing Indians out-Jew them through taking prime educational spots and nepotism.

    Indians are slowly sneaking into positions of power in the public and private sectors, just as Jews did a century ago, and it'll be hard to stop them, especially with H1B's and chain migration.

    Among Indians, only Brahmins tend to be smarter than Ashkenazi Jews, and not that many of them immigrate.

    Most H-1bs are 115-130 IQ ‘sports’ whose offspring, assuming they breed in-subcaste, are likely to have 95-115 IQs mostly. Very few H-1Bs are even as smart as the Americans they tend to displace-they are brought in for being willing to work excessive hours for lower than prevailing wage and be underhoused in places like Silicon Valley.

    Didn't Audacious Epigone say the children of Indian immigrants to the US averaged 112 IQ, which is Ashkenazi level (admittedly estimated via the 10 word vocab test)?

    I like Gertrude Himmelfarb as a historian of Britain's high point, although she's surely wrong to say that "prudence, temperance, industriousness, decency, responsibility ... depended on no special breeding, talent, sensibility, or even money. They were common, everyday virtues, within the capacity of ordinary people."

    They were within the capacity of ordinary British people (and Dutch, German etc), which surely implies breeding. Those qualities, in the sense that Himmelfarb meant them, weren't universal.

    This in itself is a big change. Macron also speaks English fluently enough to give interviews. In the past, French leaders, even if they could speak English, would not lower themselves to speaking English in public because the French language was the greatest language - you were supposed to learn THEIR language and not vice versa.

    I think last year one of the French universities wanted to start offering a business degree program taught in English - a lot of the Swiss universities already do this because English is the international language of business. There was a lot of opposition to doing this from the older faculty - I don't know how it turned out but it sounded like a rear guard action. When you go to France now you also see a lot of signs in the airport, etc. in both English and French - in the past they would never have done this.

    A very diverse group. You've got Jews with Germanic surnames, Jews with Slavic surnames, and Jews with English surnames. Fortunately, they all think the same, so things don't get too confusing.

    I really like George Harrison but I have to say he reminds me of you, little s(v)igor.
    The least talented guy in the group, without wanting to be. It is sad. I can’t really enjoy George Harrison songs as much as I want, because I always feel bad for him, being the least talented guy in the group, and, to tell the truth, not all that bright. A little bit slow, even.

    This is a free speech site so people expect people to say stupid things, and they ignore it, but – and I only say this for your own good, little s(v)igor, apparently almost nobody else around here cares about you and your pride in your foolishness enough to help you out, so they haven’t said it – but I want you to be better – and God wants that too, you know — if you think all Christians sound the same, or all Jews sound the same, and you do not have the self-awareness to know how stupid you sound to most people when you tell people what you think you really think: take a break. Read some new books. Make some new friends. Get off the internet for a few months or years, if you have to. Get spiritual guidance. Stop putting so much effort into making people who sound like you seem stupid.

    Don’t get mad at my well intentioned advice, nobody will read this comment and care about it except you.

  38. Bari Weiss’s response to the first reply to that tweet suggests that she “despises” “Those who align with le pen politics”.

    It’s generally morally tolerable to hate specific individuals, politicians, or ideologies, but it’s out-of-bounds to hate or despise or bash broad demographics of people like Bari Weiss is doing. And it’s a trend among this cadre of left wing “conservatives”: David Brooks, Bret Stephens, or Bill Kristol have bashed the Trump-ish supporters in some egregious way in recent years.

    In their anger, that cadre is erasing any legitimacy they might have had, and undermining any claims of moral superiority they might have tried to make, and pushing moderates away from them.

    More interesting to me are clips from her dad’s Wikipedia page:

    Nuland was born Shepsel Ber Nudelman in The Bronx, New York City, on December 8, 1930, to immigrant Ukrainian Jewish parents Meyer (a garment repairman)[5] and Vitsche Nudelman.[6]

    Although raised in a traditional Orthodox Jewish home, he came to consider himself agnostic, but continued to attend synagogue.[7] As a Lithuanian Jew, he witnessed anti-Semitic discrimination against his cousin and changed his name when he applied to college to ensure admittance.[5]

    In a 2001 TED talk, which was released in October 2007, Nuland spoke of his severe depression and obsessive thoughts in the early 1970s, probably caused by his difficult childhood and the dissolution of his first marriage. As drug therapy remained ineffective, a lobotomy was suggested, but his treating resident suggested electroshock therapy instead, which led to his recovery.[9] Twelve years after the talk, TED’s Curator, Chris Anderson, recalled that Nuland’s talk “remains one of the most powerful moments in the conference’s history.”[10]

    D'Souza was a huge figure in Organized Conservatism 25 years ago.

    I have his 1999 bio of Reagan on cassette tape (speaking of obsolete platforms). I forget the name of the audio book reader but it’s probably better for not being delivered in D’Souza’s measured, nasal-Spock-register accent: the combo of flowery Bamonn/Ivy-League prose with the cheesy Marlboro Man voice is nearly perfect.

    Dunno if I should trust D’Souza’s quoting — he’s a one-man Snopes machines, recently someone here mentioning his misattribution of George Forman’s manager to Muhammad Ali — but I remember it opens with contemporaneous conservatives like George F. Will and Pat Buchanan slamming RR (“The man needs a brain transplant” –Pat). How would we manage without our own Brahmins, eh

    I don't think "Dems R Real Racists" has any traction. I don't think it affects Democrats at all. Blacks are in charge of identifying who is racist and they've decided it's not the party that offers the most gimmedats, so case closed.

    "Dems R Real Racists takes many forms. Though there are some nitwits who actually subscribe to it"

    So Republicans are the real racists? I thought you Alt-Right types weren't brainwashed by the Joo media who brand Republicans, Conservatives, and anybody on the Right as the real racists.

    I didn't know that Nuland ran with that group until I read that her husband was Robert Kagan.

    More interesting to me are clips from her dad's Wikipedia page:


    Nuland was born Shepsel Ber Nudelman in The Bronx, New York City, on December 8, 1930, to immigrant Ukrainian Jewish parents Meyer (a garment repairman)[5] and Vitsche Nudelman.[6]

    Although raised in a traditional Orthodox Jewish home, he came to consider himself agnostic, but continued to attend synagogue.[7] As a Lithuanian Jew, he witnessed anti-Semitic discrimination against his cousin and changed his name when he applied to college to ensure admittance.[5]
     


    In a 2001 TED talk, which was released in October 2007, Nuland spoke of his severe depression and obsessive thoughts in the early 1970s, probably caused by his difficult childhood and the dissolution of his first marriage. As drug therapy remained ineffective, a lobotomy was suggested, but his treating resident suggested electroshock therapy instead, which led to his recovery.[9] Twelve years after the talk, TED’s Curator, Chris Anderson, recalled that Nuland's talk “remains one of the most powerful moments in the conference’s history.”[10]

Is it possible that they only show their true colours when it comes to bombing and invading other countries?

    Could it possibly be that their enthusiasm for immigration has nothing to do with compassion but is motivated entirely by a Divide and Rule agenda? That they actually hate and despise Third World immigrants just as much as they hate poor whites but they see the immigrants as useful? Is there a chance that they're actually motivated purely by the desire to maintain and enhance social control?

    Among Indians, only Brahmins tend to be smarter than Ashkenazi Jews, and not that many of them immigrate.

    Most H-1bs are 115-130 IQ 'sports' whose offspring, assuming they breed in-subcaste, are likely to have 95-115 IQs mostly. Very few H-1Bs are even as smart as the Americans they tend to displace-they are brought in for being willing to work excessive hours for lower than prevailing wage and be underhoused in places like Silicon Valley.

    Didn’t Audacious Epigone say the children of Indian immigrants to the US averaged 112 IQ, which is Ashkenazi level (admittedly estimated via the 10 word vocab test)?

    I like Gertrude Himmelfarb as a historian of Britain’s high point, although she’s surely wrong to say that “prudence, temperance, industriousness, decency, responsibility … depended on no special breeding, talent, sensibility, or even money. They were common, everyday virtues, within the capacity of ordinary people.”

    They were within the capacity of ordinary British people (and Dutch, German etc), which surely implies breeding. Those qualities, in the sense that Himmelfarb meant them, weren’t universal.

    There was a conference aired on C-Span which dealt with the subject of electoral reform. The possibility of EV vote splitting (apportioned along the lines of the popular vote) was suggested.

    Yes, Mad Cow, in the posted video, seemed to have a fixation about how candidate Trump was knocking himself out by pursuing only that 1 electoral college vote in a Republican-heavy part of Maine in 2016. The Left is big on the other side's supposed criminal tendencies. The fact that Hillary Clinton was born to wind up in an orange jumpsuit seems to have passed the Lefties by. Mad Cow goes to bed every night dreaming about how Mueller will somehow "get" Trump in the end, but Saint Hillary is virtuous by dint of the fact that she is a Democrat, no matter how seriously bent she obviously is.
    https://youtu.be/6hU6Z4OgPTs
    Only Nebraska & Maine use the "split system" for counting up its final Electoral College vote. If the split system had been used in the other 48 states, Trump would have easily beaten Hillary in the final Electoral College tally because the Nebraska-Maine split system is based on Congressional districts, with only 2 Electoral College votes being awarded on the basis of the winner of the overall vote in a state. In 2016, Trump won 229 Congressional districts. Hillary won in 206 CDs. The 2016 presidential election was decided by a razor-thin margin of only about 80,000 votes combined in the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, all going for Trump. If the Nebraska-Maine split system had been uniformly used throughout the nation, Trump would have easily romped to victory, instead of his triumph being the nail-biter it ultimately turned out to be.

    What is "Trump-like nostalgia?" I realize his slogan has "again" in it, but from what I can gather he's basically talking about America before NAFTA. That wasn't even before PC.

    You know who actually has nostalgia for the Mad Men era? The liberals who made Mad Men. They even liked the bad parts, because condescending to them for their misogyny, racism, and cigarette-smoking makes them feel gloriously superior.

    Also, gays. Because fashion.

    They pick Mad Men because it starts pre-civil rights, and Trump is supposed to be a racist based on nothing. They just project that on him because that's the playbook.

    BTW, the vastly more organised Deep State has Kelly in its sights:
     
    Isn't tangling with popular Generals (popular with their men, that is) about the most disastrous move a conspiracy burrowed in the administrative state against the Head of State can make?

    Isn't it fairly well settled in history that if you want to depose a Head of State (like, say, a Roman Emperor), that the Generals are about the only people on Earth who can stop you and restore the regime?

    Like, say one of the left's removal/impeachment fantasies against Trump is in the works on false information (or the Deep State goes an inch further and attempts/completes an assassination), isn't Kelly and/or Mattis and the like among the few people who could successfully oppose it? It would require "crossing the Potomac" (figuratively, because there is the Marine Corps Barracks already within D.C. at Eighth and I) but you can imagine Kelly or Mattis or both being just the kind who could do it and put the wood to the usurpers.

    So why mess with Kelly? Seems like a misstep.

    Interesting observation, except none of them were ever elected to any office. In fact, I don’t recall any of them ever running for a political office or even a position in a political party. How does one define leadership? Or are we measuring notoriety?

    Buckley and the gang from National Review synthesized the foundational principles of post war American conservativism. Goldwater, Reagan and many others (mostly westerners) became the elected standard bearers. Even John McMain. A review of the politics espoused by Congressman McCain demonstrates a fealty to Reaganism that stands in stark contrast to the growth in office of Senator John McCain. One almost wonders how they can be the same person.

    I suppose we can argue about the influence of neo conservatives from the late 1970s to about 2008. That’s a historical discussion. Conservatism is, as should any dynamic philosophy, adapting and evolving. Rather than the editorial pages of the Weekly Standard, we should look to the men and women who have been elected, as the revealed preference of the movement.

    I don’t consider conservative principles to be old and stale. But one would have to be an impractical fool to disregard the actuality before one’s eyes. Practical politics has over driven the headlights of political philosophy and its’s up to those who lay claim to intellectual leadership to examine things as they are.

    There was a conference aired on C-Span which dealt with the subject of electoral reform. The possibility of EV vote splitting (apportioned along the lines of the popular vote) was suggested. Of course, the decision resides with the states and not Father Washington. Not sure where this proposal will go.

    Joseph Sobran was a capable stylist, and that's what you need to be if you produce topical commentary on deadline. There is no evidence that he was a person of peculiar intellectual achievement or knew much about any subject other than little knots of early modern English literature. He certainly had no sociological sense whatsoever (see his promotion of anarchism late in life), nor any historical sense (he fell for Mark Weber's tripe).

    And, no, the CIA can't actually hire contractors who bamboozle a six digit population into buying your magazine, buying your detective fiction, watching you television program &c.

    I didn't know that Nuland ran with that group until I read that her husband was Robert Kagan.

    More interesting to me are clips from her dad's Wikipedia page:


    Nuland was born Shepsel Ber Nudelman in The Bronx, New York City, on December 8, 1930, to immigrant Ukrainian Jewish parents Meyer (a garment repairman)[5] and Vitsche Nudelman.[6]

    Although raised in a traditional Orthodox Jewish home, he came to consider himself agnostic, but continued to attend synagogue.[7] As a Lithuanian Jew, he witnessed anti-Semitic discrimination against his cousin and changed his name when he applied to college to ensure admittance.[5]
     


    In a 2001 TED talk, which was released in October 2007, Nuland spoke of his severe depression and obsessive thoughts in the early 1970s, probably caused by his difficult childhood and the dissolution of his first marriage. As drug therapy remained ineffective, a lobotomy was suggested, but his treating resident suggested electroshock therapy instead, which led to his recovery.[9] Twelve years after the talk, TED’s Curator, Chris Anderson, recalled that Nuland's talk “remains one of the most powerful moments in the conference’s history.”[10]

    Maine allows the splitting of EVs.

    Yes, Mad Cow, in the posted video, seemed to have a fixation about how candidate Trump was knocking himself out by pursuing only that 1 electoral college vote in a Republican-heavy part of Maine in 2016. The Left is big on the other side’s supposed criminal tendencies. The fact that Hillary Clinton was born to wind up in an orange jumpsuit seems to have passed the Lefties by. Mad Cow goes to bed every night dreaming about how Mueller will somehow “get” Trump in the end, but Saint Hillary is virtuous by dint of the fact that she is a Democrat, no matter how seriously bent she obviously is.

    Only Nebraska & Maine use the “split system” for counting up its final Electoral College vote. If the split system had been used in the other 48 states, Trump would have easily beaten Hillary in the final Electoral College tally because the Nebraska-Maine split system is based on Congressional districts, with only 2 Electoral College votes being awarded on the basis of the winner of the overall vote in a state. In 2016, Trump won 229 Congressional districts. Hillary won in 206 CDs. The 2016 presidential election was decided by a razor-thin margin of only about 80,000 votes combined in the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, all going for Trump. If the Nebraska-Maine split system had been uniformly used throughout the nation, Trump would have easily romped to victory, instead of his triumph being the nail-biter it ultimately turned out to be.

    Podhoretz father and son have on occasion made remarks which indicated an inflated sense of the significance of what they do all day. That aside, Mr. Sailer says 'leader' not 'thought-leader'. They certainly aren't the former and wouldn't claim to be. Some of them might claim to be the latter, but likely not Kristol, who knows quite well he's not his mother, knows he hasn't produced any scholarly writing or done any teaching in 30-odd years, and knows he hasn't the quant background to produce proper working papers. His father (with a tiny staff) was able to intermediate between academe and a corps of journalists and policy-makers, but Kristol doesn't do much of that, either and is certainly aware of that.

    This is the formidable intellect who tried to get Doug French to run for President, then settled on a closeted, dweeby Mormon nobody.

    Marion Le Pen speaks English well and gave a speech a day ago at CPAC.

    This in itself is a big change. Macron also speaks English fluently enough to give interviews. In the past, French leaders, even if they could speak English, would not lower themselves to speaking English in public because the French language was the greatest language – you were supposed to learn THEIR language and not vice versa.

    I think last year one of the French universities wanted to start offering a business degree program taught in English – a lot of the Swiss universities already do this because English is the international language of business. There was a lot of opposition to doing this from the older faculty – I don’t know how it turned out but it sounded like a rear guard action. When you go to France now you also see a lot of signs in the airport, etc. in both English and French – in the past they would never have done this.

    Indians are slowly sneaking into positions of power in the public and private sectors, just as Jews did a century ago, and it’ll be hard to stop them, especially with H1B’s and chain migration.
     
    Harder still when you consider our Indians and Chinese are the cream of the crop from 1.3 Billion and 1 Billion respectively. Our smartest Jews are severely outnumbered and average Jews stand no chance whatever against that tidal wave which is still in its infancy.

    It’s true–to an extent, Jewish power will be diluted by Asians in America. But they’re good at holding on to wealth and besides, the primary goal isn’t maintaining primacy, though that is forever captivating: the primary goal is the dispossession and eventual enslavement of white Anglo-Americans–the very same ones who saved them from Hitler.

    Just last week I was at a meeting of the Elders of Zion (I'm not supposed to tell you guys about it, but because this is an anonymous forum I think it's OK) and they brought up that the primary of the Jews is to dispossess and eventually enslave white Anglo-Americans (so you're definitely right about that part). I said, couldn't we enslave the black guys or the Indios - that had worked well in the past? And what about like the Italians and the Irish and the Poles, and such, couldn't we enslave them too? They said, nope, sorry, no can do. We are the sworn eternal enemies of white Anglo-Americans (NOT the brown Anglo-Americans or the red ones or any other color Anglo-American, only WHITE Anglo-Americans) and we can't be dispossessing and enslaving anyone else until we have finished dispossessing and enslaving ever last one of them sons of bitches.

    Not I, but I’d happily see it administered to my ex-wife, whether or not it helped her regain her sanity. Probity probably not in the cards, as it wasn’t there to begin with.

    Indeed, the organized conservative movement was once led by meritocratic mental giants such as John Podhoretz, Norman Podhoretz, Midge Decter & Elliott Abrams; Bill Kristol, Irving Kristol & Gertrude Himmelfarb; and Donald Kagan, Frederick Kagan, Robert Kagan & Victoria Nuland!

    What are you talking about? These people were writers and second-echelon federal officials. They never led anything but the Committee for the Free World and a few small circulation publications.

    While we're at it, Gertrude Himmelfarb is an accomplished historian. Wm. Kristol and Frederick Kagan certainly have the chops to be capable academics (though neither have worked in academe for some time).

    What is “Trump-like nostalgia?” I realize his slogan has “again” in it, but from what I can gather he’s basically talking about America before NAFTA. That wasn’t even before PC.

    You know who actually has nostalgia for the Mad Men era? The liberals who made Mad Men. They even liked the bad parts, because condescending to them for their misogyny, racism, and cigarette-smoking makes them feel gloriously superior.

    Also, gays. Because fashion.

    They pick Mad Men because it starts pre-civil rights, and Trump is supposed to be a racist based on nothing. They just project that on him because that’s the playbook.

    I'd agree the pundit class aren't the actual-thought leaders, but I doubt Kristol and his colleagues share your view of their place in the pecking order.

    This is the formidable intellect who tried to get Doug French to run for President, then settled on a closeted, dweeby Mormon nobody. And not to advance any "conservative" agenda, only to try and throw the EC to Hillary. Passive-aggression isn't generally associated with confident, smart people. He strikes me as way more glib than smart.

    Honestly, he's not even conservative in the traditionalist sense, and when the Right's home-and-hearth team finally prevails over the Trot team, he will make, is making, the short, happy journey to the Left.

    I’d agree the pundit class aren’t the actual-thought leaders, but I doubt Kristol and his colleagues share your view of their place in the pecking order.

    Podhoretz father and son have on occasion made remarks which indicated an inflated sense of the significance of what they do all day. That aside, Mr. Sailer says ‘leader’ not ‘thought-leader’. They certainly aren’t the former and wouldn’t claim to be. Some of them might claim to be the latter, but likely not Kristol, who knows quite well he’s not his mother, knows he hasn’t produced any scholarly writing or done any teaching in 30-odd years, and knows he hasn’t the quant background to produce proper working papers. His father (with a tiny staff) was able to intermediate between academe and a corps of journalists and policy-makers, but Kristol doesn’t do much of that, either and is certainly aware of that.

    This is the formidable intellect who tried to get Doug French to run for President, then settled on a closeted, dweeby Mormon nobody.

    It’s not unusual for highly intelligent people to endorse impractical and even witless political projects and to strike silly poses. See the entire Obamacon crew from 2008. Intellectual deficits are not their problem.

    Like, say one of the left’s removal/impeachment fantasies against Trump is in the works on false information (or the Deep State goes an inch further and attempts/completes an assassination), isn’t Kelly and/or Mattis and the like among the few people who could successfully oppose it? It would require “crossing the Potomac” (figuratively, because there is the Marine Corps Barracks already within D.C. at Eighth and I) but you can imagine Kelly or Mattis or both being just the kind who could do it and put the wood to the usurpers.

    So why mess with Kelly? Seems like a misstep.

    It's almost like they think bombing children is more moral than refusing entry to adult spivs.

    It's a fascinating alchemy. Arab lives don't matter in the slightest, destruction of economies, incitement of sectarian conflict, overthrow of progressive regimes, arming totally evil militia and civilian casualties, including children are all fine so long as the Arab is just living in their own country. The second the worst of them leave for the West they must be allowed in and anything else is pure evil.

    I can't think of any kind of agenda that would accommodate both of those elements though, it's a total mystery. I suppose you could say what makes an Arab country bad is what makes a Western country bad, sticking up for themselves, but against whom?

    Could it be that all the Refugees Welcome antiracism Diversity Is Our Strength caring and sharing is just outrageous hypocrisy? Could it be that the people pushing the Invade the World, Invite the World agenda really are racists and really don’t feel the slightest guilt about slaughtering women and children? Is it possible that they only show their true colours when it comes to bombing and invading other countries?

    Could it possibly be that their enthusiasm for immigration has nothing to do with compassion but is motivated entirely by a Divide and Rule agenda? That they actually hate and despise Third World immigrants just as much as they hate poor whites but they see the immigrants as useful? Is there a chance that they’re actually motivated purely by the desire to maintain and enhance social control?

    Could they be lying to us when they tell us they love immigrants?

    Interesting observation, except none of them were ever elected to any office. In fact, I don't recall any of them ever running for a political office or even a position in a political party. How does one define leadership? Or are we measuring notoriety?

    Buckley and the gang from National Review synthesized the foundational principles of post war American conservativism. Goldwater, Reagan and many others (mostly westerners) became the elected standard bearers. Even John McMain. A review of the politics espoused by Congressman McCain demonstrates a fealty to Reaganism that stands in stark contrast to the growth in office of Senator John McCain. One almost wonders how they can be the same person.

    I suppose we can argue about the influence of neo conservatives from the late 1970s to about 2008. That's a historical discussion. Conservatism is, as should any dynamic philosophy, adapting and evolving. Rather than the editorial pages of the Weekly Standard, we should look to the men and women who have been elected, as the revealed preference of the movement.

    I don't consider conservative principles to be old and stale. But one would have to be an impractical fool to disregard the actuality before one's eyes. Practical politics has over driven the headlights of political philosophy and its's up to those who lay claim to intellectual leadership to examine things as they are.

    Instead we have an estate of clergy excommunicating voters and politicians for the heresy of winning and exercising political power.

    Conservatism is, as should any dynamic philosophy, adapting and evolving.

    In which case it ain’t conservatism.

    The kind of conservatism that adapts and evolves has another name. It’s called liberalism.

The employment-to-population ratio for whites is slightly higher than the national mean and the unemployment rate slightly lower.

    Not a lot. The employment-to-population ratio for white males in this country isn't that different from cross-national or historical norms. As for wage losses attributed to any kind of racial discrimination, you'd be hard put to demonstrate that they exceed a single-digit %. Employment discrimination law as practiced causes serious problems (see James Damore), especially in higher ed, the legal profession, and public employment, but the problems are not readily manifest in compensation metrics.

    It's true--to an extent, Jewish power will be diluted by Asians in America. But they're good at holding on to wealth and besides, the primary goal isn't maintaining primacy, though that is forever captivating: the primary goal is the dispossession and eventual enslavement of white Anglo-Americans--the very same ones who saved them from Hitler.

    According to the Jews, we didn’t save them from Hitler. That evil anti Semite FDR should have declared war on Germany as soon as Hitler was appointed chancellor spring of 1933.

    We didn’t do enough for the Jews. The goyim never do enough for the Jews.

  130. I think Bari is a clear upgrade over anyone else the NYT is likely to have hired for her job, but she is showing her youth here. It’s the reference to Dinesh D’Souza that sticks out. I realize Dinesh has gotten a little raw since Preet Bharara made him a political prisoner and he decided he had nothing to lose, but prior to that he was a perfectly respectable conservative intellectual. Illiberal Education is part of the conservative canon – one of those books they used to give to all the college kids at YAF events and you did not get your Conservative Pundit license without having a copy on your bookshelf. Very sad that Bari doesn’t seem to know any of this.

    George the least talented member of a group that included Ringo? Surely you jest.

    The “least talented” instrumentalist in the Beatles was Lennon. Both Harrison and Starr/Starkey were highly skilled within their limitations–they certainly weren’t Buddy Rich and Chet Atkins–though, Rich and Atkins were no Starr and Harrison either.

    That is a good point about Lennon. For instance, on “The End”’ which closes out the Abbey Road album, Paul, George, and John all alternate guitar solos. I could never get over how bad John’s solos sounded compared to the other two. And arguably, Paul’s solos were a little bit better than George’s. Which is not surprising, since he was by far the most musically talented member of the group.

    When I think of Marion le Pen and Nigel Farage I think, Why can't patriotic conservatives in America elect themselves a leader who's smart and articulate?

    Marion Le Pen and Nigel Farage are not conservatives at all. They are radicals in the sense that they want radical change in their country’s immigration laws and favoring non White immigrants over White natives.

    That’s radicalism now days. From Goldwater and the John Birch Society to the present day conservatives have done nothing to help Whites.

    And they have lost every cultural fight. Gays went from decriminalization to gay marriage and common bathrooms. Abortion is the law of the land fewer and fewer people are getting married, feral thugs rule the schools and the judges enabled the rule of feral thugs in schools.

    TV and culture are just ghetto. The schools and universities preach hatred and denigration of Whites. They might as well be clergy preaching against the devil on Sunday. But they preach it every day to kids from pre school to PHD.

    I vaguely remember the great conservative hope Goldwater. He lost. Eisenhower wasn’t a conservative. He desegregated the schools and unleashed a reign of terror on White kids and students.

    Conservatives have lost every cultural political and fiscal fight. A conspiracy theorist might think they are controlled opposition meant to lose.

    I’ll always vote for Republican presidents because the liberals who hate Republicans also hate me. And it’s fun to watch them have their tantrums when Republicans win.

    Conservatives have never done a thing for Whites. The 1920’s immigration restrictions were enacted due to labor union liberal activists.

    Being pro White native and opposed to non White immigration as Farage and Le Pen are, is far out radical, not conservative.

    The reason Republicans always betray you is that they know you'll vote for them anyway. Millions of conservative voters will turn out on polling day to vote for a party that despises them. That's how traitorous "conservative" parties survive and thrive. If you want conservative policies you have to do what you can to destroy the fake conservative parties like the Republicans. Not voting for them is a good start.

    D’Souza earned my added respect with a tweet after the Florida legislature rejected a gun-grabbing initiative in the wake of the Lakeland shootings.

    From Heavy.com:

    “Florida state lawmakers voted down a ban on assault weapons less than a week after 17 people were killed during a rampage at a Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida. When the ban didn’t pass, D’Souza shared a photo of the survivors’ horrified reactions with the caption

    “Worst news since their parents told them to get summer jobs…

    D’Souza … has been denounced by the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an annual event that D’Souza has spoken at several times, according to The Wrap.”

    Anybody denounced by the cucks at CPAC can’t be all bad.

    In 1975 I saw Harrison play that live, at the Oakland Coliseum (that was what he called his Dark Horse Tour).

    A great musician. They said his voice was a little off (too many cigarettes, undiagnosed bronchitis, who knows?) , but nobody watching the concert that night cared.

    Still — if the Beatles were not a band but just a bunch of guys who were four brothers, everybody would have said George was the slow one, if there was a slow one.

    D'Souza is a leftist who tattled on Sam Francis and got him fired from Bill Cuckley's birdcage liner.

    D’Souza had a choice early in his career.

    He could have a serious scholar with political bent, like Thomas Sowell.

    Or he could a partisan polemicist cooking up clever arguments to score points in the Current Year. He opted for the latter.

    A book like END OF RACISM is at least provocative on the intellectual level. And his youthful criticism of multi-culturalism had much of merit.

    And his take on 9/11 had some counter-intuitive merit. Though he overstated how most Muslims could be conservative allies of Western conservatives at war with Liberal decadence, it had something more to offer than “Muslim world needs western freedom and democracy.”

    But his recent narratives are just silly. It’s basically “Democrats are the real racist” over and over and over.

    Recently, there was a ocumentary called Best of Enemies about Buckley and Vidal. It was pretty good. One thing that struck out was how iconic both of them were. I thought Buckley was thin as a thinker and even thinner as a fiction writer(of silly spinoff of 007), but he had magnetism and charm. Later, I think he smoked too much pot and got a bit dull, but what spark he had in the 60s. He led the movement not through power of ideas but power of personality… much like John F. Kennedy did. Buckley was like camelot for the Conservative movement. He gave it sex appeal and a sense of sophistication and hipness.
    Vidal had great presence too as a cultural personality. And unlike today’s MILO who only knows trash culture, Vidal knew everything from pop to art history. And he was a terrific writer and great wit. He sure got the best of Buckley and Mailer(who once punched him out, whereas Buckley only threatened to).

    I think the advantage Buckley and Vidal had was that they grew up in the pre-TV era, so their sensibility came from books and manners. In contrast, the personalities that came to prominence since the TV era of libertine-ism lack style and grace because the new mode of expression was to just blurt everything out. And internet made it even more so.

    The cool medium of the TV came to favor the image. Warhol was certainly aware of what was up. Even though his stuff was called Pop Art, it was more a Neo-Icon ‘Art’. For a long while, Western Art was heavily iconographic of great pagan gods and heroes, great leaders, and later Jesus and Jesus and more Jesus. But with the rise of romanticism, nature was favored. Realism favored the world as is. Impressionism dissolved the image. Expressionism and surrealism warped the image, and abstract painting and action painting deconstructed forms. In the high arts, the trend was toward iconoclasm of conventions and forms.
    But the human mind naturally craves icons, the encapsulation or symbolization of perfect forms: an individual that represents the aspiration toward perfection among misshapen humanity or an image of a moment as eternity, such a the iconic image of Che Guevara that just went crazy. Warhol’s factory was a maker and destroyer of icons, a very decadent enterprise because it was icon for icon’s sake with no other meaning except to be famous or notorious(even if only with one another, which made it incestuous). Warhol didn’t have the looks or charisma to be an icon yet become an icon for those very anti-iconic values: the eccentric puppeteer, rather like the John Hurt character in THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND, a movie about a intelligence officer with no iconic value who recruits a TV news icon to serve as his patsy-proxy.

    Most intellectuals and pundits don’t have iconic value. And that’s perhaps why so many of the above-mentioned Neocons attached themselves to William Buckley who had the style and personality to become a household name. They needed his image; he needed their brains as he didn’t have too many ideas of his own. Though Buckley was obviously smart and sharp, he was just not a thinker type. His main instinct was defender-of-privilege-and-order. He was about stepping on the brake but never the accelerator. But in the end, the accelerator wins because while the brakes can momentarily halt the car, it cannot make the car go in reverse. And because Buckley didn’t know how to go forward, he was probably drawn to Neocons who offered an idea for the future of conservatism. They would step on the accelerator than the brakes but steer history in a different direction… which turned out to be Wars for Israel and a new stupid cold war with Russia.

    This icon business in politics wouldn’t have been out-of-control if not for the TV. The TV made it matter. Oliver Stone was onto something when his Nixon is haunted by JFK. Not so much because JFK beat him and was tragically assassinated. JFK has iconic value. He was Camelot. He made even a damn Cuban weep over his death. “People look at you and they see who they want to be. They look at me and they see what they are.”
    NIXON is a fascinating as a study of the least iconic president in conflict with so many iconic forces. The ghost of Kennedy, the icon-drive counterculture, the Black radical, Mao the icon of tyrant-as-liberator, etc. Nixon didn’t have star power, and his support came from the ‘silent majority’, a bunch of humdrum nobodies, the archies and edith bunkers of the world. 60s was the era of Kennedy, Che, Muhammad Ali, MLK, Malcolm X, Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Warhol, Robert Kennedy who shot to stardom in 68 before being shot, and etc. The Right, in contrast, didn’t have many icons. There was Buckley. There was John Wayne, to be sure, but he belonged to the past. Now, Nixon-Elvis alliance, that was weird. Elvis’ influence had a big role in the rise of Rock music, but he was also deeply conservative and hated flag-burning hippies.

    In the age of icons, a side that fails to create icons is bound to lose out. But then, the demise of the Factory is a warning to how dangerous iconism can be as it fosters decadence, excess, style over substance, image over the thing, hype over the human. And we are seeing some of the demise today with 50 genders where everyone wants to be a STAR. It sure didn’t work out for Edie. But then, the icon has a life of its own. Even though Elvis and Michael Jackson died most pathetically, their iconic power just kept on living, and their fans never gave up.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciao!_Manhattan

    It’s generally true that film directors don’t have the Look. So, they need to form a partnership with actors with iconic value. Ford and Wayne. Kurosawa and Mifune. Kazan and Brando.

    And this is true of the world of ideas as well. In HAIL CAESAR, all those intellectuals and writers don’t have the magic. They are well-read and well-versed, but they can’t win over anyone with their looks or style. But then, there is the actor in the musical, very good-looking, has the moves, and so flashy. Intellectually, he is below their league, but as a face and presence, he has star power. (On the other hand, if he’s going to see Stalin, good luck with that. Better sacrifice the goy than one of the Tribe.) For neocons, Buckley was useful in this way. And for Liberal Zionists, Obama was useful this way.

    Trump… what is he? It seems his shtick is just Ican, or I CAN do it cuz I do things bigly. He’s too big and too small to be an icon. Weird.

  152. The beautiful and brilliant Marion Marechal-Le Pen stole the show at CPAC and a lot of people are jealous, envious, and alarmed. (Mona Charen is just the tip of this iceberg of hate and resentment.) I wish Trump had invited Marechal-Le Pen to the White House and given her some sort of medal.

    She's slightly less cute than Rachel McAdams especially make-up free, true, but let's not go overboard here.

    She's cute, but she's no raven-haired heart pumper.

    Cute? Not as good-looking as a black-haired woman? I detect boiling rage and envy. And the fact that her speech was intellectually brilliant simply intensifies your suffering. The quote from Mahler was a masterstroke.

    Not a lot. The employment-to-population ratio for white males in this country isn’t that different from cross-national or historical norms.

    The "least talented" instrumentalist in the Beatles was Lennon. Both Harrison and Starr/Starkey were highly skilled within their limitations--they certainly weren't Buddy Rich and Chet Atkins--though, Rich and Atkins were no Starr and Harrison either.

    That is a good point about Lennon. For instance, on “The End”’ which closes out the Abbey Road album, Paul, George, and John all alternate guitar solos. I could never get over how bad John’s solos sounded compared to the other two. And arguably, Paul’s solos were a little bit better than George’s. Which is not surprising, since he was by far the most musically talented member of the group.

    It's true--to an extent, Jewish power will be diluted by Asians in America. But they're good at holding on to wealth and besides, the primary goal isn't maintaining primacy, though that is forever captivating: the primary goal is the dispossession and eventual enslavement of white Anglo-Americans--the very same ones who saved them from Hitler.

    the primary goal is the dispossession and eventual enslavement of white Anglo-Americans–the very same ones who saved them from Hitler.

    Very same ones? Don’t be silly – most of those guys are dead or extremely old. Anyway I saw it on TV – the concentration camps were really liberated by African-Americans.

    Just last week I was at a meeting of the Elders of Zion (I’m not supposed to tell you guys about it, but because this is an anonymous forum I think it’s OK) and they brought up that the primary of the Jews is to dispossess and eventually enslave white Anglo-Americans (so you’re definitely right about that part). I said, couldn’t we enslave the black guys or the Indios – that had worked well in the past? And what about like the Italians and the Irish and the Poles, and such, couldn’t we enslave them too? They said, nope, sorry, no can do. We are the sworn eternal enemies of white Anglo-Americans (NOT the brown Anglo-Americans or the red ones or any other color Anglo-American, only WHITE Anglo-Americans) and we can’t be dispossessing and enslaving anyone else until we have finished dispossessing and enslaving ever last one of them sons of bitches.

    Why is your pseudonym associated with a society which, for all its moral splendors, was notably amoral in the realm of sexual relationships? And that is not a good thing, in case you were wondering.

    If you are gay, Pericles, please remember that God loves you: but also remember that Jesus's words to the woman who people criticized for being an adulterer were, as follows:
    Sin no more.

    Does not that sound nicer than "lol": "Sin no more".

    I know D'Souza produces those documentaries and violated some campaign finance law or other, but I hadn't noticed he was one of those "one of *those*" types.

    The Jewish Daily Forward mounted a completely unhinged campaign against Gorka , accusing him of Nazi membership or somesuch. It was reminiscent of Howell Raines’ jihad against Augusta Country Club in its intensity, inanity and faux urgency.

    D'Souza had a choice early in his career.

    He could have a serious scholar with political bent, like Thomas Sowell.

    Or he could a partisan polemicist cooking up clever arguments to score points in the Current Year. He opted for the latter.

    A book like END OF RACISM is at least provocative on the intellectual level. And his youthful criticism of multi-culturalism had much of merit.

    And his take on 9/11 had some counter-intuitive merit. Though he overstated how most Muslims could be conservative allies of Western conservatives at war with Liberal decadence, it had something more to offer than "Muslim world needs western freedom and democracy."

    But his recent narratives are just silly. It's basically "Democrats are the real racist" over and over and over.

    Recently, there was a ocumentary called Best of Enemies about Buckley and Vidal. It was pretty good. One thing that struck out was how iconic both of them were. I thought Buckley was thin as a thinker and even thinner as a fiction writer(of silly spinoff of 007), but he had magnetism and charm. Later, I think he smoked too much pot and got a bit dull, but what spark he had in the 60s. He led the movement not through power of ideas but power of personality... much like John F. Kennedy did. Buckley was like camelot for the Conservative movement. He gave it sex appeal and a sense of sophistication and hipness.
    Vidal had great presence too as a cultural personality. And unlike today's MILO who only knows trash culture, Vidal knew everything from pop to art history. And he was a terrific writer and great wit. He sure got the best of Buckley and Mailer(who once punched him out, whereas Buckley only threatened to).

    I think the advantage Buckley and Vidal had was that they grew up in the pre-TV era, so their sensibility came from books and manners. In contrast, the personalities that came to prominence since the TV era of libertine-ism lack style and grace because the new mode of expression was to just blurt everything out. And internet made it even more so.

    The cool medium of the TV came to favor the image. Warhol was certainly aware of what was up. Even though his stuff was called Pop Art, it was more a Neo-Icon 'Art'. For a long while, Western Art was heavily iconographic of great pagan gods and heroes, great leaders, and later Jesus and Jesus and more Jesus. But with the rise of romanticism, nature was favored. Realism favored the world as is. Impressionism dissolved the image. Expressionism and surrealism warped the image, and abstract painting and action painting deconstructed forms. In the high arts, the trend was toward iconoclasm of conventions and forms.
    But the human mind naturally craves icons, the encapsulation or symbolization of perfect forms: an individual that represents the aspiration toward perfection among misshapen humanity or an image of a moment as eternity, such a the iconic image of Che Guevara that just went crazy. Warhol's factory was a maker and destroyer of icons, a very decadent enterprise because it was icon for icon's sake with no other meaning except to be famous or notorious(even if only with one another, which made it incestuous). Warhol didn't have the looks or charisma to be an icon yet become an icon for those very anti-iconic values: the eccentric puppeteer, rather like the John Hurt character in THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND, a movie about a intelligence officer with no iconic value who recruits a TV news icon to serve as his patsy-proxy.

    Most intellectuals and pundits don't have iconic value. And that's perhaps why so many of the above-mentioned Neocons attached themselves to William Buckley who had the style and personality to become a household name. They needed his image; he needed their brains as he didn't have too many ideas of his own. Though Buckley was obviously smart and sharp, he was just not a thinker type. His main instinct was defender-of-privilege-and-order. He was about stepping on the brake but never the accelerator. But in the end, the accelerator wins because while the brakes can momentarily halt the car, it cannot make the car go in reverse. And because Buckley didn't know how to go forward, he was probably drawn to Neocons who offered an idea for the future of conservatism. They would step on the accelerator than the brakes but steer history in a different direction... which turned out to be Wars for Israel and a new stupid cold war with Russia.

    This icon business in politics wouldn't have been out-of-control if not for the TV. The TV made it matter. Oliver Stone was onto something when his Nixon is haunted by JFK. Not so much because JFK beat him and was tragically assassinated. JFK has iconic value. He was Camelot. He made even a damn Cuban weep over his death. "People look at you and they see who they want to be. They look at me and they see what they are."
    NIXON is a fascinating as a study of the least iconic president in conflict with so many iconic forces. The ghost of Kennedy, the icon-drive counterculture, the Black radical, Mao the icon of tyrant-as-liberator, etc. Nixon didn't have star power, and his support came from the 'silent majority', a bunch of humdrum nobodies, the archies and edith bunkers of the world. 60s was the era of Kennedy, Che, Muhammad Ali, MLK, Malcolm X, Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Warhol, Robert Kennedy who shot to stardom in 68 before being shot, and etc. The Right, in contrast, didn't have many icons. There was Buckley. There was John Wayne, to be sure, but he belonged to the past. Now, Nixon-Elvis alliance, that was weird. Elvis' influence had a big role in the rise of Rock music, but he was also deeply conservative and hated flag-burning hippies.

    In the age of icons, a side that fails to create icons is bound to lose out. But then, the demise of the Factory is a warning to how dangerous iconism can be as it fosters decadence, excess, style over substance, image over the thing, hype over the human. And we are seeing some of the demise today with 50 genders where everyone wants to be a STAR. It sure didn't work out for Edie. But then, the icon has a life of its own. Even though Elvis and Michael Jackson died most pathetically, their iconic power just kept on living, and their fans never gave up.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ciao!_Manhattan

    It's generally true that film directors don't have the Look. So, they need to form a partnership with actors with iconic value. Ford and Wayne. Kurosawa and Mifune. Kazan and Brando.

    And this is true of the world of ideas as well. In HAIL CAESAR, all those intellectuals and writers don't have the magic. They are well-read and well-versed, but they can't win over anyone with their looks or style. But then, there is the actor in the musical, very good-looking, has the moves, and so flashy. Intellectually, he is below their league, but as a face and presence, he has star power. (On the other hand, if he's going to see Stalin, good luck with that. Better sacrifice the goy than one of the Tribe.) For neocons, Buckley was useful in this way. And for Liberal Zionists, Obama was useful this way.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqhpZ30uNic

    Trump... what is he? It seems his shtick is just Ican, or I CAN do it cuz I do things bigly. He's too big and too small to be an icon. Weird.

    Marion Le Pen and Nigel Farage are not conservatives at all. They are radicals in the sense that they want radical change in their country’s immigration laws and favoring non White immigrants over White natives.

    That’s radicalism now days. From Goldwater and the John Birch Society to the present day conservatives have done nothing to help Whites.

    And they have lost every cultural fight. Gays went from decriminalization to gay marriage and common bathrooms. Abortion is the law of the land fewer and fewer people are getting married, feral thugs rule the schools and the judges enabled the rule of feral thugs in schools.

    TV and culture are just ghetto. The schools and universities preach hatred and denigration of Whites. They might as well be clergy preaching against the devil on Sunday. But they preach it every day to kids from pre school to PHD.

    I vaguely remember the great conservative hope Goldwater. He lost. Eisenhower wasn’t a conservative. He desegregated the schools and unleashed a reign of terror on White kids and students.

    Conservatives have lost every cultural political and fiscal fight. A conspiracy theorist might think they are controlled opposition meant to lose.

    I’ll always vote for Republican presidents because the liberals who hate Republicans also hate me. And it’s fun to watch them have their tantrums when Republicans win.

    Conservatives have never done a thing for Whites. The 1920’s immigration restrictions were enacted due to labor union liberal activists.

    Being pro White native and opposed to non White immigration as Farage and Le Pen are, is far out radical, not conservative.

    I’ll always vote for Republican presidents because the liberals who hate Republicans also hate me. And it’s fun to watch them have their tantrums when Republicans win.

    The reason Republicans always betray you is that they know you’ll vote for them anyway. Millions of conservative voters will turn out on polling day to vote for a party that despises them. That’s how traitorous “conservative” parties survive and thrive. If you want conservative policies you have to do what you can to destroy the fake conservative parties like the Republicans. Not voting for them is a good start.

    Steve – please don’t let this comment through if you do not think it would be useful, I trust your common sense on this.

    Sviogr, Pericles, Mr Anon – not only am I Roman Catholic but I have had a near death experience which made me understand people like you. I saw this world from the perspective of someone who has died. And pathetic losers like you – I saw how much you just need someone to tell you that you are fuck-ups.

    You do not have hatred in your hearts that you invited in willingly, and you do not want your parents to look on you as stupid and nasty.

    God loves you and God is sad that you are so fucking stupid and nasty. That was not why he gave you testosterone! Look, all you need to do to be happy is to stop being fucking stupid and to work hard and be honest and to find a good woman. We all know you are angry for some reason or another, well stop being angry.

    A year from now, nobody will care that you used to be weird little motherfuckers that said stupid shit on the internet, if you (a) pray every day for the guidance of the Lord and (b) try and find a good woman to live a good Christian life with.

    You are welcome, you poor little fuck-ups. God I wish you had been through boot camp with me back in the day. We would have straightended you out. Your lives would be so much better! Well, it is never too late. Feel free to consider the dragons called off, little s(v)igor and your little sidekicks – I have gotten dozens of better men than you to pray for you. And a couple of holy women. Still, the ball is in your court -grow the fuck up, my poor little shitheads. (I detest vulgarity, of course, but I am trying to reach you and make you understand. God loves you, you poor losers).

    I am Roman Catholic.

    While I realize that God loves you, it is clear that you enjoy coming across as either stupid or evil, little s(v)igor. You are not impressing anybody! I will pray for your eternal soul. And I have many friends, godly people, who will pray for you too. No matter how long it takes, we will pray for your repentance.

    and feel free to have the last word, I know how important that is to losers like you.

    Victoria Nuland's dad wrote a bestseller called "How We Die" that offered a lot of detailed information on what dying is like. My father read it and thought it was pretty good.

    I have a copy of “How we Die”. Sherwin Nuland also wrote “Lost in America” a book about his father.

    There in, it is written that the Nudelmans are from Novoselitza (about 20 miles from Czernowitz -my birth place). In 1945 Jews from that county dreaded and hated the “Banderovtsy”. [Banderovtsy killed any Jew on sight.] In 2014 Victoria Nuland helps them to power in Ukraine.
    History is strange.
