Movie director (A Few Good Men) and actor (All in the Family) Rob Reiner continues to rain thunder down upon Trump’s racist, restrictionist immigration policies from behind the guarded gates of the Malibu Colony, where he is a leader of local political efforts to keep Malibu’s population from growing.

A friend writes:

I looked up where in Malibu Reiner lives. Apparently the 90% white Malibu isn’t exclusive and guarded enough for Rob. He lives in the Malibu Colony: the gated community within Malibu. He has walls within walls within walls to protect his privacy.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Spend July at Rob Reiner’s Malibu home for $100,000
By LAUREN BEALE
MAR 12, 2015

Rob Reiner, whose “All in the Family” role launched his stardom in the 1970s, is the latest landlord of note to put his Malibu beach house up for lease. For $100,000 you get July, and that’s a relative bargain. …

Set behind the gates of Malibu Colony, the 2,755-square-foot summer spot features beamed ceilings and skylights. There’s a family room with a fireplace, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and steps to the sand.

List of home values in the LA area:

Listed below are the priciest neighborhoods in Los Angeles and their median sale prices in 2017.

The Colony: $13 million
Trousdale: $9.3 million
Carbon Mesa: $8.587 million
Beverly Hills Gateway: $8.020 million
Malibu Cove Colony: $8 million
Beverly Hills Flats: $7.6 million
Malibu Road: $7.446 million
Serra Retreat: $6.35 million
Broad Beach: $3.85 million
Point Dume: $3.785 million

But don’t worry, Rob isn’t homeless when he’s renting out his weekend house in Malibu:

Mister Reiner continues to own a gated compound hidden behind high hedges and a towering wall of shrubbery in the Brentwood area that he’s owned since the early 1990s, when he picked it up for $4.75 million.

I edited the last slightly to make it even harder to find Reiner’s houses, because I’ve worried about celebrity safety ever since John Lennon would remark upon the irony of him living in The Dakota, which did not work out well.

But not everybody shares my concerns. In another tweet, Reiner sounds kind of like he’s issuing a casting call for a new, improved John Wilkes Booth:

“It’s like the assassination of Abraham Lincoln … except this time the President is the racist bad guy and the actor is the hero!”

And here’s a 2015 article in the Guardian mentioning Reiner’s name in passing:

Malibu’s celebrity homeowners try to block public beach use

Owners of beachfront mansions hire security guards to issue trespass notices as decades of public access to the California coast come under threat

Mr. Reiner draws a lot of water in this town, Lebowski.

    Israel has never even thought about depoting African Jews. In fact they have gone to great lengths to import them. It is the regular Africans that they deport.

    That would be a really funny stunt. Somebody could rent some twelve-passenger vans and shuttle bums from Skid Row to the beach. A small group of people could get hundreds of 'em out there in just a few hours.

    Filming it would be even funnier. The residents' reactions would be priceless. You'd have to get a whole lot of bums there at once though, so they'd feel emboldened enough to not be intimidated by the security guards.

    Heck with Google and a couple of other sources you can easily track down most of the K Street bag men and the goons who run the Chambers of Commerce. All of whom qualify as mortal enemies of America. And most assured they are far worse than a bearded old road apple like Meatwad.

    BTW, I've never looked into how much administrative leeway is available in this Section 8 program. But considering what Obama did with AFFH, it seems like there must be some. Trump should really be using whatever power he has to reign in the Section 8 beast.

    (Community/neighborhood approval would be a great step. Reiner could stop being such a hypocrite and vote for the diversity he claims to love.)

    No, Section 8 is for formerly conservative Orange, Ventura, San Bernadino and Riverside Counties.

    If Trump is building a wall to block migration by land, Reiner and neighbors can coordinate migration by sea. Have the Dreamers come by boat and land on the sands of Malibu. That can be his next movie. The Sands of Malibu, with some Mexican guy playing the Juan Wayne character.

    Then, he can enjoy the great view of beachfront as millions of Third Worlders come wading ashore on boats and rafts. It will be wonderful as the storming of Normandy.

    I still think a sitcom with Rob Reiner as a liberal version of Archie with his daughter dating a Trump supporter would be brilliant. Reiner may be an ass politically, but if you saw The Wolf of Wall Street you know he's still a first rate comic actor.

    One thing that Microsoft recently, inexplicably hobbled (because security? licensing? bandwidth?) is Bing’s formerly great “bird’s eye” map view aerial photography with which one could zoom in and out at oblique cardinal angles with unlimited height for quick acquisition. Now one is restricted to single resolution close-up views of fewer areas, Bing having disabled bird’s eye for many of their maps.

  15. They used to sell books listing where all the stars lived.

    https://www.amazon.com/Movieland-Directory-Addresses-Historical-1900-Present/dp/0786443375

    Plus movie star houses have well publicized pedigrees – Reiner’s Brentwood house used to be Norman Lear’s and before that Paul Henreid’s and before that Henry Fonda’s.

    It took me about 5 minutes of Googling to figure out where Reiner lived based on the abundant clues. (Convenient walking distance to both Brentwood Country Club AND Riviera!)

    And then there is a website of movie star addresses that just gives it to you , which really takes the fun out of it.

    so this is not exactly top secret information.

  16. I always thought it was funny that (((Sorkin))) and (((Reiner))) wrote and produced A Few Good Men and came away with the impression that normal Americans would find Col. Jessup to be an irredeemable villain and accept Lt. Sam (((Weinberg))) as the Jiminy-Cricket on Tom Cruise’s shoulder, acting as his moral guide and conscience. Jessup’s henchman is Keifer Sutherland’s Lt. Kendrick, who is more or less any Jew’s fever dream of a Southerner as career military officer.

    I imagine that neither ever knew personally the sort of American who would serve in the Marines nor who ever had, and how he would perceive Jessup’s code and emphasis on battle readiness. It stands as a sort or Rorschach test where the Jews who made the film think it means one thing, while lots of the people who view the film think it means something else.

    Funny or not, millions and millions of Americans, whether consciously or sub-consciously, came away from that film with exactly that impression. Even right-wingers love that movie.

    I admit, at the time it came out, I didn't appreciate what they were up to with that film. Now, of course, I get it.
    , @Negrolphin Pool
    Sargent Barnes is another war-flick antagonist whose villainy consists of acting out a mostly sensible if brutal ethos. It's hard to ignore that Barnes, like Col Jessup, is dedicated to his professional duties above all else and acts only to further the mission. To Oliver Stone's credit, the moral ambiguity and complexity of the characters' in Platoon seems very much intentional, unlike the one-dimensional cartoon character of Lt Kendrick, as you note, who serves as little more than a cheap foil.
    , @william munny
    Exactly. I was in the Marines at the time, and after the first guy told us how great it was, a bunch of us went to see it in our dress blues. We cheered Jessup's speech.

    I always thought it was funny that (((Sorkin))) and (((Reiner))) wrote and produced A Few Good Men and came away with the impression that normal Americans would find Col. Jessup to be an irredeemable villain and accept Lt. Sam (((Weinberg))) as the Jiminy-Cricket on Tom Cruise's shoulder, acting as his moral guide and conscience. Jessup's henchman is Keifer Sutherland's Lt. Kendrick, who is more or less any Jew's fever dream of a Southerner as career military officer.

    I imagine that neither ever knew personally the sort of American who would serve in the Marines nor who ever had, and how he would perceive Jessup's code and emphasis on battle readiness. It stands as a sort or Rorschach test where the Jews who made the film think it means one thing, while lots of the people who view the film think it means something else.

    Funny or not, millions and millions of Americans, whether consciously or sub-consciously, came away from that film with exactly that impression. Even right-wingers love that movie.

    I hope not — Postville was permanently destroyed (after the Mexicans, Obama sent in Somalis), and meanwhile almost every member of the huge scam, except for Rubashkin himself, successfully fled “persecution” to Israel.

    It's not unprecedented for a boat chock full of illegals trying to smuggle themselves to crash into beaches near a major US city. The bodies were washing up in Rockaway, Queens for weeks.Said some of the illegals hopped off the boat, marched right through Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Chinatown. No one really knows how many of the hundreds got away.

    That would be a really funny stunt. Somebody could rent some twelve-passenger vans and shuttle bums from Skid Row to the beach. A small group of people could get hundreds of 'em out there in just a few hours.

    Filming it would be even funnier. The residents' reactions would be priceless. You'd have to get a whole lot of bums there at once though, so they'd feel emboldened enough to not be intimidated by the security guards.

Apparently if a patient looked like a bum, the staff would bundle him in a cab when they were finished treating him, and then tell the driver to roll him out when they got downtown. Maybe somebody's disheveled-looking grandpa regained his senses and spilled the beans?

    Sargent Barnes is another war-flick antagonist whose villainy consists of acting out a mostly sensible if brutal ethos. It’s hard to ignore that Barnes, like Col Jessup, is dedicated to his professional duties above all else and acts only to further the mission. To Oliver Stone’s credit, the moral ambiguity and complexity of the characters’ in Platoon seems very much intentional, unlike the one-dimensional cartoon character of Lt Kendrick, as you note, who serves as little more than a cheap foil.

    If Trump is building a wall to block migration by land, Reiner and neighbors can coordinate migration by sea. Have the Dreamers come by boat and land on the sands of Malibu. That can be his next movie. The Sands of Malibu, with some Mexican guy playing the Juan Wayne character.

    Then, he can enjoy the great view of beachfront as millions of Third Worlders come wading ashore on boats and rafts. It will be wonderful as the storming of Normandy.

    What time did Rob wake up?

    The crack of dawn, by the looks of it. I believe the shot points east towards greater Los Angeles. Is the hump on horizon right the Palos Verdes Peninsula?

    One thing that Microsoft recently, inexplicably hobbled (because security? licensing? bandwidth?) is Bing’s formerly great “bird’s eye” map view aerial photography with which one could zoom in and out at oblique cardinal angles with unlimited height for quick acquisition. Now one is restricted to single resolution close-up views of fewer areas, Bing having disabled bird’s eye for many of their maps.

    The photo also tells us one of the reasons the area remains so desirable (despite being nothing more than a rather narrow beach hemmed in by a dangerous highway): that view is almost exactly the same one I would have seen if I had been so foolish as to get up at the crack of dawn in any year from 1960 to 67 when my grandmother would take a house for a month for the "benefit" of her many grandchildren at more or less that very spot.
    I hated it - it was nothing like the summers in Laguna in earlier years. There was nothing to do, and, until I learned to drive in 1964, aged 16, nowhere to go. Why she changed venues like that I'll never understand.

    Rob Reiner, whose “All in the Family” role launched his stardom in the 1970s, is …

    Whoa, whoa, just hold on a minute. Even I know that Rob Reiner’s Dad was some kind of hotshot movie or TV guy too. What does she mean, “launched his stardom”? Carl Reiner was a big shot in that business; his son was just “the meathead”, and living up pretty well to his old moniker up to the present day, I must say. Kudos, as it were.

    Anyway the fact that I know this and Steve Sailer hasn’t mentioned it is kind of triggering me right now. I will go back to teaching some slow-learner on a previous post about health care to calm myself down.

    Rob Reiner being Carl's son falls under the heading of "common knowledge".

    To give Meathead some credit, he wasn't famous before All in the Family, and his brother and sister aren't famous at all, so I think Beale's sentence is accurate.

    His father also protected him after Reiners hardcore sense of entitlement provoked him to sexually assault Mary Tyler Moore. Consider how screwed up in the head you’d have to be, as a 14 year old, to believe that fondling the ass of the adult costar of a major sitcom, at her workplace, is "okay"?

    And then laugh about it later?

    You really have to be essentially off your rocker. There has to be something deeply wrong with you. If, as a teen, I went to my dads work and tried that, even at that time, I’d have to be out of my mind!

    But to Rob and his dad, it's hilarious getting the best of a shiksa! No matter what the pedigree, a shiksa's a shiksa, am I right? Hello? Is this thing on?!

    I bet JPod rents it from him where he writes articles about Israel needing a larger border wall and its right to deport all dark skinned Jews back to Africa.

    Israel has never even thought about depoting African Jews. In fact they have gone to great lengths to import them. It is the regular Africans that they deport.

  70. I think part of Reiner’s problem is, rather than being mindful of the inherent dangers of appearing to embody a time-tested negative Jewish stereotype, he lean’s into it as if it’s a feature, rather than an inherent existential “bug.”

    That is, he’s never learned the unwritten rule for effective persuasion of never going “Full Jew.” When he gets tired or excited, it seems to be his go-to behavior, and it’s never been pretty to look at.

    He even wrecked at least one of his comedy movies doing just that. He allowed his proclivity for Jewish shmaltz to undermine the genre of the film, The Princess Bride, employing serial Jewish scene-chewer Billy Crystal to go “Full Jew” in a scene that effectively trashed the integrity of the entire movie! It could have been a great comedy, and Reiner trashed it for eternity. Because broad vaudeville level Jewish humor to disrupt an established genre is funny to Rob, even if it forces the audience out of the story, and fuck you. For me, it’s the major reason the film is a “cult classic,” instead of a Classic. Reiner, in an artistic sense, isn’t above “shitting where he eats,” because fuck you, that’s why.

    In another glaring example, Note the Wasps suddenly, as if taken over by witches, engage in standard Jewish shmaltz, effectively taking the audience out of the scene. Again.

    I would finally say to Reiner, while borrowing off of a classic comedy…

    “Fat, dumb, and Jewey is no way to go through life, son.”

  71. People like Rob Reiner are so safely insulated from the effects of the policies they advocate that I have to wonder if they’re eventually going to bring the whole thing down on us all? When he’s not pushing for an open door immigration policy, he’s pushing for a constitutional crisis by way of heightened tensions with another nuclear power. Do people like him (and the Clintons, McCains etc) , in their Forbidden City enclaves, eventually bring down all civilizations?

  73. As much as I enjoy Steve’s Twitter feed, I’m starting to worry that he’s spending too much time there. Battles with Rob Reiner and John Podhoretz may be fun, but they’re junk food. The real stuff are the more substantive blog posts and articles.

    Look what happened to Mickey Kaus. He was completely destroyed by Twitter. He spends all his time tweeting out inside-baseball stuff that is incomprehensible unless you take the time to call up the whole thread. He hardly ever posts anything longer than a tweet these days.

    The best way to deal with Twitter, if you must use it at all, is to religiously delete all but the most recent 50 tweets. This does three things: (1) It reminds you that Twitter is ephemeral, (2) it discourages you from spending too much time crafting something that will be gone in a few days, and (3) it removes incriminating history that will come back to bite you someday when armies of autistic enemies decide to take you out.

    I've toyed with the idea of keeping a Dead To Me Now Thanks To Twitter list; of folks whose work I genuinely liked/admired until their toxic virtue-signaling on social media involuntarily triggered a loathing for them, that makes compartmentalizing their work separately from them an impossibility.

    I know that this is one of the things level-headed, rational people insist they would never do. But I think most of them are lying; not maliciously, but who could have foreseen the toxic omnipresence of social media, or how catastrophically enstupidating its effects would be? (And, yes, the irony of "enstupidate" not being an actual word is not lost upon me.)

    Reiner got his start through nepotism. Without Carl he would not have had a career in show business. Study the films he’s directed: not once was he the most important creative force on the project

    His father also protected him after Reiners hardcore sense of entitlement provoked him to sexually assault Mary Tyler Moore. Consider how screwed up in the head you’d have to be, as a 14 year old, to believe that fondling the ass of the adult costar of a major sitcom, at her workplace, is “okay”?

    And then laugh about it later?

    You really have to be essentially off your rocker. There has to be something deeply wrong with you. If, as a teen, I went to my dads work and tried that, even at that time, I’d have to be out of my mind!

    That would be a really funny stunt. Somebody could rent some twelve-passenger vans and shuttle bums from Skid Row to the beach. A small group of people could get hundreds of 'em out there in just a few hours.

    Filming it would be even funnier. The residents' reactions would be priceless. You'd have to get a whole lot of bums there at once though, so they'd feel emboldened enough to not be intimidated by the security guards.

    The ultimate troll would be to crowd fund a rental of Reiner’s house and then relocate 3 dozen Guatemalan illegal aliens into the home (and a camera crew).

    Malibuites feel crowded. They typically have narrow houses with virtually no yards. Pacific Coast Highway is right out your front door. David Geffen was so rich that he ultimately bought up five houses or lots in a row on Billionaire Beach, but Reiner isn't in that league.

    In general, Malibu is a nightmare of bad town planning, but the people who own there don't want it to change since its problems serve as justification for keeping the population strictly limited.

    An inspiring scene from Sands of Malibu.

    http://drrichswier.com/wp-content/uploads/blob.png

    It’s not unprecedented for a boat chock full of illegals trying to smuggle themselves to crash into beaches near a major US city. The bodies were washing up in Rockaway, Queens for weeks.Said some of the illegals hopped off the boat, marched right through Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Chinatown. No one really knows how many of the hundreds got away.

  91. Having a racist in the White House has brought things into sharp relief. We are engaged in the last battle of the Civil War. And the sooner he is gone the sooner the arc of morality in the universe will arrive at justice. God bless MLK.

    Obvious question to Reiner:

    Instead of a civil war, wouldn’t it be simpler, more polite, more decent, more just … to just separate?

    He can live in his ever-browner nation, but people that don’t want to–want to just kind of live in the same old nation they grew up in–don’t have to. Win, win.

    Would Reiner go for this? Why not? Of course, to ask is to answer. Reiner’s interest is not having diversity for himself–easily arranged by moving from Malibu! Rather it’s to harrass white gentiles–to make sure they can’t have a nation that they run, with their norms, that is comfortable for them to live in and prosper. Rubbing white gentiles faces in diversity is what is engaging Reiner’s passions here, nothing else.

    With a few specific exceptions most celebs, even A listers, are trivial to locate. They are protected by the same means all wealthy and notorious people are protected by in third world countries, i.e., walls and guards with guns.

    One reason that celebs love places like Malibu is that those places do a good job of intimidating the casual loopy (but not dangerous) fan. The crazies are what the walls and guards are for. Really serious professional operators are something that celebs don't worry about much, and don't have to for the most part.

    Anyone with a functional brain can find these buggers. Just look at Schumer where the Mexers showed up to raise hell at his home today. Same with Garcetti when the BLM gave him a warm welcome at his home.

    Heck with Google and a couple of other sources you can easily track down most of the K Street bag men and the goons who run the Chambers of Commerce. All of whom qualify as mortal enemies of America. And most assured they are far worse than a bearded old road apple like Meatwad.

    Rob Reiner, whose “All in the Family” role launched his stardom in the 1970s, is ...
     

    Whoa, whoa, just hold on a minute. Even I know that Rob Reiner's Dad was some kind of hotshot movie or TV guy too. What does she mean, "launched his stardom"? Carl Reiner was a big shot in that business; his son was just "the meathead", and living up pretty well to his old moniker up to the present day, I must say. Kudos, as it were.

    Anyway the fact that I know this and Steve Sailer hasn't mentioned it is kind of triggering me right now. I will go back to teaching some slow-learner on a previous post about health care to calm myself down.

    They used to sell books listing where all the stars lived.

    Plus movie star houses have well publicized pedigrees - Reiner's Brentwood house used to be Norman Lear's and before that Paul Henreid's and before that Henry Fonda's.

    It took me about 5 minutes of Googling to figure out where Reiner lived based on the abundant clues. (Convenient walking distance to both Brentwood Country Club AND Riviera!)

    And then there is a website of movie star addresses that just gives it to you , which really takes the fun out of it.

    As much as I enjoy Steve's Twitter feed, I'm starting to worry that he's spending too much time there. Battles with Rob Reiner and John Podhoretz may be fun, but they're junk food. The real stuff are the more substantive blog posts and articles.

    Look what happened to Mickey Kaus. He was completely destroyed by Twitter. He spends all his time tweeting out inside-baseball stuff that is incomprehensible unless you take the time to call up the whole thread. He hardly ever posts anything longer than a tweet these days.

    The best way to deal with Twitter, if you must use it at all, is to religiously delete all but the most recent 50 tweets. This does three things: (1) It reminds you that Twitter is ephemeral, (2) it discourages you from spending too much time crafting something that will be gone in a few days, and (3) it removes incriminating history that will come back to bite you someday when armies of autistic enemies decide to take you out.

    Reiner got his start through nepotism. Without Carl he would not have had a career in show business. Study the films he’s directed: not once was he the most important creative force on the project
     
    His father also protected him after Reiners hardcore sense of entitlement provoked him to sexually assault Mary Tyler Moore. Consider how screwed up in the head you’d have to be, as a 14 year old, to believe that fondling the ass of the adult costar of a major sitcom, at her workplace, is "okay"?

    And then laugh about it later?

    You really have to be essentially off your rocker. There has to be something deeply wrong with you. If, as a teen, I went to my dads work and tried that, even at that time, I’d have to be out of my mind!

    as much as you may think a Reiner or JPod is a mediocrity, u r wrong: JPod is a serious blogger/opinion maker. He actually has his own opinions, and defends them with gusto. Reiner may be a minor filmmaker, but that does not make him stupid. He's extremely clever and has managed to endear himself to many conservatives, including Laura Ingraham.

    I always thought it was funny that (((Sorkin))) and (((Reiner))) wrote and produced A Few Good Men and came away with the impression that normal Americans would find Col. Jessup to be an irredeemable villain and accept Lt. Sam (((Weinberg))) as the Jiminy-Cricket on Tom Cruise's shoulder, acting as his moral guide and conscience. Jessup's henchman is Keifer Sutherland's Lt. Kendrick, who is more or less any Jew's fever dream of a Southerner as career military officer.

    I imagine that neither ever knew personally the sort of American who would serve in the Marines nor who ever had, and how he would perceive Jessup's code and emphasis on battle readiness. It stands as a sort or Rorschach test where the Jews who made the film think it means one thing, while lots of the people who view the film think it means something else.

    Exactly. I was in the Marines at the time, and after the first guy told us how great it was, a bunch of us went to see it in our dress blues. We cheered Jessup’s speech.

    Meathead... All In the Family... Archie Bunker... wasn't Archie Bunker modeled on the Jewish father of the producer, Norman Lear? But of course it targeted those dumb and prejudiced WASPs. Modern fiction technology then "programs" people to believe that what they see is reality.


    "Archie Bunker's Heart", Paul Farhi, The Washington Post, June 23, 2001:


    "...As Lear once said of his father, on whom Bunker was based, "I could never forgive him for being a bigot. But I found there were other things to love him for."..."

There are so many layers of myth-making and aged recollection wallpapering the history of this I don’t credit any of them now.

    Agreed and very well said.

    The (Media mafia) coverage, analysis of the President Kennedy assassination coupled with the same media mafia coverage of the 1968 Chicago Democrat convention was what pushed me at a very young age to simply notice that the “American” (yeah right) media was lying.

    Rob Reiner, whose “All in the Family” role launched his stardom in the 1970s, is ...
     

    Whoa, whoa, just hold on a minute. Even I know that Rob Reiner's Dad was some kind of hotshot movie or TV guy too. What does she mean, "launched his stardom"? Carl Reiner was a big shot in that business; his son was just "the meathead", and living up pretty well to his old moniker up to the present day, I must say. Kudos, as it were.

    Anyway the fact that I know this and Steve Sailer hasn't mentioned it is kind of triggering me right now. I will go back to teaching some slow-learner on a previous post about health care to calm myself down.

    .

    Stay out of Malibu, Sailer! Especially the golf courses!

    Rob Reiner being Carl’s son falls under the heading of “common knowledge”.

    To give Meathead some credit, he wasn’t famous before All in the Family, and his brother and sister aren’t famous at all, so I think Beale’s sentence is accurate.

    The photo also tells us one of the reasons the area remains so desirable (despite being nothing more than a rather narrow beach hemmed in by a dangerous highway): that view is almost exactly the same one I would have seen if I had been so foolish as to get up at the crack of dawn in any year from 1960 to 67 when my grandmother would take a house for a month for the “benefit” of her many grandchildren at more or less that very spot.
    I hated it – it was nothing like the summers in Laguna in earlier years. There was nothing to do, and, until I learned to drive in 1964, aged 16, nowhere to go. Why she changed venues like that I’ll never understand.
    $100,000 a month? I’d be surprised if she payed even a fiftieth of that.

    Great account. Thanks. My family took a waterfront rental one summer. Lower middle class could afford it. The place is incredibly more expensive today, 50 years later. It in only for the rich and wealthy.

    Lebowski might say that Rob Reiner passes a lot of water in Malibu. Too bad the genes got diluted, as his dad Carl was talented and a frequent guest on Johnny Carson.

    Rob Reiner being Carl's son falls under the heading of "common knowledge".

    To give Meathead some credit, he wasn't famous before All in the Family, and his brother and sister aren't famous at all, so I think Beale's sentence is accurate.

    Rob Reiner hasn’t done much of note in recent decades, but from 1984-1992 he directed seven distinctive and decent movies in a row. This impressive winning streak caused him to be overrated for a time, but now his career is underrated.

    I hate to break this to you, but this sort of thing was funny 60 years ago. Plus, you are really overselling what happened by calling it sexual assault.

    Another illustration of how boomers were allowed to do whatever they wanted, and then they demanded that Gen X behave by new standards. The “Demon Child” movie fad ended with the start of the Millennials. Social Security, and so on.

  146. “Listed below are the priciest neighborhoods in Los Angeles and their median sale prices in 2017.”

    Ok, for the uninitiated, where are these SoCal neighborhoods (aside from the obvious places)? It seems as though Malibu is well represented, with four (or more?) neighborhoods, but what part of SoCal are the other neighborhoods? Guess Taluca Lake has seen better days since its not on the list. Did Bel Air make the list with any neighborhoods?

    I mean, for Steve, many of these neighborhoods would appear to be fairly well known but for the rest of Americans, maybe not so much. So maybe a breakdown of these other SoCal neighborhoods would help put things in perspective.

    People like Rob Reiner are so safely insulated from the effects of the policies they advocate that I have to wonder if they're eventually going to bring the whole thing down on us all? When he's not pushing for an open door immigration policy, he's pushing for a constitutional crisis by way of heightened tensions with another nuclear power. Do people like him (and the Clintons, McCains etc) , in their Forbidden City enclaves, eventually bring down all civilizations?

    “Do people like him (and the Clintons, McCains etc) , in their Forbidden City enclaves, eventually bring down all civilizations?”

    Yep. After plundering the little people, they use their ill-gotten riches to hire private armies. The bad news is, they remain on as the Lords of the manor in the petty fiefdoms the society devolves into. Cf. Ancient Rome.

    Isn't Section 8 designed to inject blacks into neighborhoods like this one?

    No. It’s designed to inject blacks into white, working class neighborhoods like the one depicted in “All In The Family” where Reiner’s fictional father-in-law lived.

    The really dangerous loonies often aren't well organized enough mentally enough to do much intensive research into where somebody lives. So I try not to spread information easy enough to help some nut like the guy who shot John Lennon. For example, I'll edit out the name of Manhattan building that a celebrity lives in, but keep the neighborhood.

    Why?

  153. Anything below the high tide line is federal property. As long as you stay on the wet sand, the security guards have no right to block you.

    It would never occur to a WASP millionaire to even try to restrict long distance beach walkers.

    (After all, nothing is more SWPL than a long distance beach walk.)

    For instance, it is possible to walk the entire New Jersey shore, with the exception of Deal.

    Deal is a the wealthy, predominantly Jewish enclave where the Kushners live. It was the only town which refused federal beach replenishment aid, mostly because they liked the fact that the broken beach (in some places the ocean smashes right up against the sea wall, with no beach) blocked beach walkers. They even passed a law that anyone swimming or wading off the Deal beaches had to be wearing a personal flotation device, to give the local police a pretext for harassing any fishermen or surfers “intruding” on what they insist, in defiance of all federal laws, is a “private” beach.

    Thanks for the contents of your ass. It's been an education.



    However much your beef is fictional or non-fictional, Deal, NJ has a population of 750 and its beach front is about 1 mile long. Household incomes therein average about 25% above New Jersey's mean and household size is about 15% below the New Jersey mean, so the per capita income is about 48% above New Jersey's mean. It's as affluent as you'd expect of a tiny professional-managerial class enclave. The Jews resident are largely Sephardic.

    As much as I enjoy Steve's Twitter feed, I'm starting to worry that he's spending too much time there. Battles with Rob Reiner and John Podhoretz may be fun, but they're junk food. The real stuff are the more substantive blog posts and articles.

    Look what happened to Mickey Kaus. He was completely destroyed by Twitter. He spends all his time tweeting out inside-baseball stuff that is incomprehensible unless you take the time to call up the whole thread. He hardly ever posts anything longer than a tweet these days.

    The best way to deal with Twitter, if you must use it at all, is to religiously delete all but the most recent 50 tweets. This does three things: (1) It reminds you that Twitter is ephemeral, (2) it discourages you from spending too much time crafting something that will be gone in a few days, and (3) it removes incriminating history that will come back to bite you someday when armies of autistic enemies decide to take you out.

    I find even reading the stuff takes a lot of time. Social media is certainly addictive and that applies even to the high brow material.

    The ultimate troll would be to crowd fund a rental of Reiner’s house and then relocate 3 dozen Guatemalan illegal aliens into the home (and a camera crew).

    Think of the laughs. The smugness. The moral indignation. I would throw in $200. Maybe more.

    I’ve toyed with the idea of keeping a Dead To Me Now Thanks To Twitter list; of folks whose work I genuinely liked/admired until their toxic virtue-signaling on social media involuntarily triggered a loathing for them, that makes compartmentalizing their work separately from them an impossibility.

    I know that this is one of the things level-headed, rational people insist they would never do. But I think most of them are lying; not maliciously, but who could have foreseen the toxic omnipresence of social media, or how catastrophically enstupidating its effects would be? (And, yes, the irony of “enstupidate” not being an actual word is not lost upon me.)

    Anyway, jot down your own Dead To Me Now Thanks To Twitter list during an idle moment; you’d be surprised how easily, and quickly, the page fills up.
