From the New York Times:

Maine Needed New, Young Residents. African Migrants Began Arriving by the Dozens.

The migrants have been arriving in Portland, Maine, by the dozens. The surge has opened a debate in the city, which needs new residents but also has filled its shelters.

You might have your own (ignorant) opinion on the subject, but it’s a simple fact that Portland, Maine needs Congolese. That’s just Science.

By Kate Taylor
June 23, 2019

PORTLAND, Me. — … This month, 250 migrants from Africa arrived in this northeastern city of roughly 67,000 residents in the span of just a week, overflowing the overflow space and forcing Portland to hastily convert a basketball arena into an emergency shelter. Urgent calls went out for interpreters who could speak French, Portuguese and Lingala, a language spoken in the Democratic Republic of Congo. City Council meetings were given over to grappling with how Portland would pay for all of this — and the possibility that still more migrants might be coming.

Do you think there could be more where these ones came from?

Let’s check … Democratic Republic of Congo, 2017 population 81 million. Huh …

It is a bit of a mystery in Maine, one of the oldest and whitest states in the country, how Portland has become a focal point for a sudden surge of migrants, mostly from Angola and Congo, who are seeking asylum.

Maine has long wrestled with an aging work force, and some leaders view immigrants as a welcome answer to the state’s struggles to lure younger people to live and work here.

Actually, like the other Portland, Portland, Maine is fashionable with well-educated young Americans. From Salon in 2016:

Portland, Maine, the “other” Portland, is a desirable city to live in if you don’t mind the chilly winters. It shows up on a lot of lists: Most Livable Cities, Hippest Cities, Healthiest Cities, Foodie-est Cities, etc. And that makes it a desirable location for the well-to-do to relocate. The problem is that there is only a limited housing stock to accommodate the incoming hordes of affluent people seeking to live in the attractive oceanside city. The result is that newcomers battle longtime residents for housing, and housing costs go up. Among the largest 100 metropolitan areas, Portland, Maine had the second largest rise in rental rates in the U.S. Rents rose 17.4%, the median rent in Portland rising to $1582, more than much larger Philadelphia and Chicago. With many hundreds of new families relocating to the city every year, a housing shortage has worsened, and the rent increases have driven the working class out of town in droves. Portland’s vacancy rate is near zero. Meanwhile shelters for the homeless are overflowing with citizens unable to compete with newcomers who consider the $1600 rents cheap by their former standards. The city has been struggling to come up with workable options to increase affordable housing without impacting Portland’s “livability.” Meanwhile, as rents have increased 40% in the past five years, Mayor Ethan Strimling has acknowledged that there was a $500 gap between what people make in Portland and what they can afford to pay for housing.

But back to the New York Times:

Still, the sheer numbers — and the suddenness of the latest arrivals — have opened up a debate about how much Portland should be doing to help immigrants and whether it should entice more of them to come.

“I love the fact that these folks are coming here, and they want a better life, and they’ve chosen Portland,” Jon Jennings, the city manager, said. “But at the same time, I’ve got to figure out how to pay to pave streets and fix sidewalks and all of the things that are uniquely responsible to a municipal government.”

City Managers (non-politicians hired for their managerial competence) are not necessarily the most Woke people compared to grandstanding mayors. I had lunch with the City Manager of a famously liberal small city last year and he looked and dressed as conservatively as Mr. Drysdale, the Clampetts’ bank manager on The Beverly Hillbillies.

There is friction over the issue, even inside City Hall.

“If we have discovered the magic wand that will bring young families to Portland to help us build the next generation, why would we want to stop that, especially when it costs us so little money?” Ethan Strimling, Portland’s mayor, said.

The migrants arriving in this city have undergone a grueling journey, traveling by air or sea to South America, and then north on foot and by bus to the southern border of the United States, where most of them were arrested by border officials and released with notices to appear in immigration court after they declared their intention to seek asylum.

… Hundreds of African migrants arrived just this month and were taken to San Antonio, where Catholic Charities provided bus tickets to Portland and other cities that the migrants named as their destinations.

Among Portland’s residents and even some of the families arriving from Africa, it is uncertain how this place became such a draw.

Mr. Strimling, the mayor, has been an outspoken advocate for welcoming immigrants. In April, when President Trump wrote on Twitter that his administration was considering sending detained immigrants to so-called sanctuary cities, Mr. Strimling responded: “If he wants to send more immigrants our way, bring them on.”

But Mr. Jennings, who runs the day-to-day operations of Portland, expressed concern about the costs of aiding everyone, and criticized the mayor for having essentially invited asylum seekers to come here.

… Inside the Expo, the basketball arena now filled with 200 cots, families gave varying reasons for choosing Portland, a city that is 81 percent white but that already has a sizable community of immigrants from Africa, including from Congo and Angola. About 13 percent of the city’s population is foreign born, according to census data, many of those residents from Somalia.

Gloire Kikweta, 24, who came from Congo with his wife and two children — the younger of whom was born in Brazil on their way here — said he had left his home because he was being pursued by law enforcement for participating in protests against the former president, Joseph Kabila.

Kabilia has been out of power since January.

He said he did not have a plan of where to go in the United States, but when he was in San Antonio, African immigrants there advised him to go to Portland, telling him that it was an aging city that needed more people, and that it was safe.

Vincent Mbala, 32, who is also from Congo, and came with his wife and three children, said that he learned through internet research that Maine provided financial support for asylum seekers. Maine is unusual in providing general assistance, for up to two years, to immigrants who have valid visas or who have applied for asylum. … Portland also has what local officials believe is the only municipal fund in the country that provides support to asylum seekers before they submit their applications.

There’s your problem right there.

… Complaints, too, have come. Some Portland residents said that the city needed to focus more on local needs. The views reflected strains caused by Portland’s recent success in attracting another group — young professionals from other states — whose presence has driven up rents even as it has fueled the local economy.

So, like I pointed out above, Portland is doing fine attracting white yuppies.

… Mr. Strimling, who recently announced he is seeking re-election as mayor, said he wanted to keep the fund open to anyone who needed it. He said that he doubted many migrants were coming to Portland because they had heard about the fund, but that, if they were, it was all the more reason to keep it going. …

In Parkside, not far from the Expo, Timothy Goldkin, 29, called it a “beautiful thing” to have more diversity in Maine. Mr. Goldkin, who has a housemate who is an asylum seeker, said he would rather have more immigrants in Portland than wealthy people migrating from other states and changing the city’s landscape and culture.

“I’m much more worried about the people with lots of money who want to just completely make it their town, with zero regard to what it was,” he said, “than the folks who are fleeing persecution and in fear of their life and who are coming here to try to understand our culture

That’s why all the African asylum seekers have well-thumbed copies of Moby Dick and the complete works of E.B. White.

and integrate into it, while still holding onto and bringing some of their own loveliness.”

Indeed.

The article ends with the expectation that the Congolese will soon move from the dole in the city to the Great North Woods to fill critical lumberjack jobs.

For now, a major challenge for the city is to find permanent housing for the scores of families staying at the Expo and another shelter. Neighboring cities have agreed to help identify vacancies, and Mr. Jennings said that a lumber company in Jackman, three hours north of Portland, had reached out with an offer to house some of the families in Jackman if they were interested in working for the company.

“I’ve had people all over the state inquire about whether some of these folks could come to other parts of the state, because they need qualified workers,” Mr. Jennings said. “They need new people.”

There are trees rotting in the forests.

    By the dozens? You don’t say, NYT. How can this “richest nation in the world” (it’s not) turn its back on dozens of needy negroes from their homeland?

    If only this country weren’t run by white male nazis (but I repeat myself) and their hero in the white house. What is their problem? We only have 330 million people. We need new “residents”!

    If only Steve held the megaphone rather than the nation-wrecking low-lifes at the NYT. But we’re told (even here) that they’re such a small proportion of the population that they couldn’t possibly hold sway.

  9. As anyone who has lived in the US for a few decades knows, the most (accidentally) woke whites have always been those who have the least contact with the “mysterious other”. You noticed this if you ever served in the military with folks from the upper mid-west white areas, and the NW…they literally think blacks are like they are on TV, doctors, lawyers, judges, philosophical janitors who enjoy reading
    Descartes and going to museums and all that…but after a few months of up-close and personal contact, they typically change their tune.

    Trump should be doing more of this…call it, the “Anti-Ice Raids” or in newspeak, “unraids”. Portland and Portland, and Austin and Charlottesville and Bloomington and Boise and so on, need special unraids to be double-plus good.

    The surge has opened a debate in the city, which needs new residents

    Who wrote this? That phrasing — “needs” — the declarative style, as in a moral judgement…it sounds almost genocidal. At the least, there are “ethnic cleansing” overtones there.

    Who wrote this?

    by Kate Taylor (born ca. late 1979)

    She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and studied literature at Harvard [BA, 2001].

    Has Kate Taylor sold her soul for a certain number of pieces of silver?

    Or was she born that way?

    What of Kate Taylor’s own posterity? Does she care about her own people?

    And then, this: The NY Times reports that its very own Kate Taylor married Jewish doctor Jeremy Faust on Sept. 11, 2016; one child (a daughter; presumably to be raised with a Jewish identity).

    Kate Taylor, thus, it’s probably fair to say, views herself as on the winning team, the present and future elite, and as such believes the rest of us don’t matter. And/or maybe the rest of us even deserve punishment-by-Africanization. So it may not, after all, be such a mystery why she’s doing this.

    While the refugee resettlement agencies are actively evil, don’t forget that Trump has absolute power to set the number of refugees in the program. It was good he cut the number from 100k to 20k, but 0 would have been a whole lot better. The agencies live off the federal funds from the program.

    My sympathy for adult Portlanders evaporated when I heard their mayor’s aggressive invitations and their special welfare program just for asylum seekers. When your welfare benefits for illegal migrants are more extensive than San Francisco’s, you’re asking for it.

    I think it’s absolutely fantastic. This is what liberal Portlanders voted for, this is what they wanted, and they’re going to get it good and hard.

    If cities like Portland are completely trashed they might at least serve as warnings of the consequences of virtue signalling. Of course liberals never do learn. But it doesn’t matter. At least we get the enjoyment of watching liberals having their Hippest Most Livable City reduced to a trash heap. I’m hoping that there are lots more refugees on their way to Portland right now.

    That just highlights Portland’s inherent bigotry. They wouldn’t do that if they were using the arena. I mean, would they “hastily convert” a candlepin bowling lane?

    Let’s check … Democratic Republic of Congo, 2017 population 81 million…

    the “other” Portland

    Don’t leave out the other Congo. That’s another 5.5 million. If the two Congoes go to war, they can leave the soldiers home and have the politicians duke it out themselves. The two capitals are immediately across the– hold on, now– Congo River.

    Fewer “refugees” that way.

    (For what it’s worth, “Congo population” is a spoonerism of “pongo copulation”.)

    another group — young professionals from other states

    Perhaps a few boatloads of Africans could dissuade those people from moving in. In a perverse sort of way, it could be worth it for the locals.

    In the short term, anyway.

    Absent rioting, people will pay the invasion no heed; instead blaming the far-right for being divisive.

    Logically there is no reason for refugee resettlement other than electoral politics and cultural humiliation. Its far more efficient to assist them in their homelands and neighboring countries.

    If we must Invade, we need not Invite. Instead of bombing countries, be like the Canadian myth of being humanitarian assistance.

    I’ve always wanted to develop a residential “pain test” for white liberal/progressives. Imagine if a liberal/progressive small city that was essentially all white experienced a sudden demographic shift. The shift is inevitable, and will remake the racial demographics by 30%. But they can choose the entire racial makeup of the change between either Blacks or Asians. Which one would they choose? Asian crime and IQ rates are very similar to whites. Blacks, not so much. You’d think a white L/P would choose Asians in a heartbeat. Greater socio-economic compatibility and all that. But what if they viewed it as more competition? Instead viewing a racial IQ caste system as more preferable.

    Which option do you think the average white liberal/progressive would choose?

    Maine ranks as the safest state in the country, as there were just 124 violent crimes reported for every 100,000 residents — less than a third of the national rate.

    Worst: Least diverse

    Does it make you feel better to blame “others” for this disaster? How has that been working out as a strategy?

    Was it the Jews at Catholic Charities who paid for the bus tickets to Portland, who passed Maine’s state-level welfare program,* and who passed Portland’s special “welfare for asylum seekers” welfare program? Are the loggers who so generously offered to hire the new migrants instead of employing Mainers also Jews?

    *California once also had a state-level welfare program with the same name as Maine’s, general assistance. It was on top of any federal welfare. It was eliminated during the state budget crisis of 2008-2010, and has not returned. When it was still around you’d see a long line of bums outside the county welfare offices the first of the month to collect the roughly $60 in cash per month that was paid to single men without income, no strings attached. It could also be mailed, but no address, no problem, come in person!

    I always thought California was then the very last state to pay state-funded cash welfare benefits, but I guess the Jews are extra-powerful in Maine compared to California and have preserved such dysgenic idiocy.

  47. Wilkey says:

    It is a bit of a mystery in Maine, one of the oldest and whitest states in the country, how Portland has become a focal point for a sudden surge of migrants, mostly from Angola and Congo, who are seeking asylum. Maine has long wrestled with an aging work force, and some leaders view immigrants as a welcome answer to the state’s struggles to lure younger people to live and work here.

    And now it has a young, diverse, and vibrant non-workforce to complement it’s aging workforce.

    My theory is that none of this shit would be tolerated if we as Americans actually had to, you know, pay for the benefits the government pays out. If that were the case then actual welfare payments would have to be paid for with actual taxes, and everyone would be throwing a fit at the cost to pay for these refugees. “Oh, you want to bring in another 10,000 Congolese and Somalis to your town? Cool. We’ll just have to raise everyone’s taxes by $1,000 to pay for their schooling and housing subsidies and food stamps and some new jail cells and government-mandated interpreters.”

    Instead we just add another $600 billion a year to the national credit card (it was $1 trillion/year for most of Obama’s presidency) and push the bill on down to the next generation. It allows us to be as “generous” as we could care to be with no financial consequences whatsoever.

    Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah warns that the “west will disappear” as a result of mass migration, adding that “Islam will invade the world” and “completely change culture, anthropology, and moral vision.”

    Sarah’s new book, Evening Draws Near and the Day is Nearly Over, is causing controversy in Europe because it explicitly identifies Muslim migration as a harbinger of the continent’s collapse.

    “If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians,” said Sarah, adding, “My country is predominantly Muslim. I think I know what reality I’m talking about.”

    The Cardinal also blamed the European Union for its “desire to globalize the world, ridding it of nations with their distinctive characteristics,” labeling the move “sheer madness”.

    “The Brussels Commission thinks only about building a free market in the service of the great financial powers,” he continued. “The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. It protects the banks.”

    In a previous video interview, Sarah warned that Europe had lost its roots and was dying because of fewer European natives having children.

    Hasn’t changed since I was there in the ’70s. Except the rents. But I don’t remember an MLK St.

    Portland is looking for an artist to create an MLK memorial

    Hearing on renaming Franklin Street bares old scar, panel seeks to honor MLK another way

    Several people, including a former resident of the Bayside neighborhood that was demolished in the late 1960s, said it would be inappropriate to rename the street after the slain civil rights activist because so many families were dislocated by the project.

    I don’t know– a history of driving people out of their neighborhoods might make the new name appropriate.

    Oh, wait… that’s Milk Street. Not, I hope, as in Harvey. Because that photo is at Milk and Exchange. Ugh.

    Actually, that Milk St may have a historic reason for the name. The other Portland’s is, well, trendier. As goes Oregon, so goes the nation…

    Actually Jews do pay for a big share of Catholic Charities funding. So do you and, and pretty much anyone else who pays taxes. Most of their funding comes from the government. In 2010 $2.9 billion of its $4.7 billion budget came from the federal government.

    OT: The Minneapolis Star Tribune is starting to do a litle reporting on Ilhan Omar. This may be the first time the local paper mentioned that she may have married her brother.

    http://m.startribune.com/new-documents-revisit-questions-about-rep-ilhan-omar-s-marriage/511681362/

    One commenter on the article believes that her dad may be her uncle, whatever that means exactly.

    liberal4ever
    JUNE 23
    I can tell you that there is a very very high probability that she married her brother/cousin.

    1. Her alleged brothers middle name is Nur, which is Ilhan Omar’s fathers middle name. In the Somali naming system your first name is your name, the middle name is your fathers name and the last name is your grandfather. It changes each generation. It’s a unique naming system that Arabs also use. Ilhan’s middle name is Abdullahi which is not her fathers middle name. It may very well be that Ilhan’s father is her uncle.

    2. When I checked court records I saw that tickets received by her current husband were issued in the address that Ilhan Omar lived at that time. At that time she was not married to her current husband. Tickets issued to her “brother” were not in the address that she lived in. As the Strib also points out, when her current husband opened a business, he used the address of Ilhan (despite not being legally married to her at that time). How can they divorce in their religion but still get tickets in that address and open a business using that address.

    3. The Strib should look for documents related to benefits that Ilhan received from Hennepin County. Child Support (Hennepin) sues as a plaintiff with the mother against the Respondent (father) when the mother asks for benefits. I see no case was brought up. This means Ilhan Omar said she didn’t know where the father was while being married to her brother while living in low income housing in Cedar Riverside.

    4. There are two court cases in Ilhan Omar’s sister that are very interesting. One of them is a divorce that her sister got in 2009 and the other involves Ilhan’s older sister getting guardianship of Ilhan’s sister who was divorced. The guardianship form asks any other relatives and it lists Elmi as a relative.
    Case No. 27-FA-09-6706 Case No. 27-GC-PR-09-423. Interestingly, two years after getting a divorce and becoming a ward, Ilhan’s sister is restored to capacity and the paperwork uses Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hiris’s same address while divorced “in their faith”.

    If the Strib is really serious, they need to reach out to members of the Somali community. There are many who can lead you to the right information as long as they are given anonymity.

    The new news in that article is:

    1. Omar’s real husband used the supposed address of Omar/Omar’s fake husband.

    2. When Omar said in court filings that she had no contact with fake husband/brother for years and had tried and failed to contact him, that was perjury. They had met in England in 2015 and were in social media contact regularly, and had overlapping social media circles as well.

    3. A woman who knew fake husband from MN identified him in a photo with Omar in 2015 during the period she said under oath she had no contact with him.

    4. The same woman said she never knew fake husband was married even though she knew him pretty well.

    The evidence she lied under oath about having no contact with fake husband is overwhelming. Seems like this should be a matter for the DOJ to look into.

    The evidence fake husband is her brother is strong but not conclusive. He was there for the birth of her third child and called it his niece on instagram. And the original allegation was on a Somali community website, not a right-wing source. Finally, she was 26 with 2 kids, he was 23. Seems like an odd match if it were a real marriage.

    The evidence against is they don’t have matching surnames, and that he went to high school and college in the USA after moving from the UK. Was he already a legal US resident? He is also a British citizen. Do Somali British citizens really want US citizenship so badly? If so, why did he return to the UK permanently about 3 years after marrying Omar? If it was an immigration fraud marriage, it was an abandoned attempt.

    New England is not only about as liberal as you can get and still be White

    Almost all liberals are white. Liberalism is the ultimate white person’s ideology. Like many white ideologies (e.g. Marxism, Mormonism, Libertarianism) it actually requires a very high degree of intelligence to be able to grasp abstract concepts like altruism or to tease out convoluted chains of cause and effect, to say nothing of having to constantly reconcile the contradictions between your ideology and empirical reality without becoming cynical or simply mugged by reality. Very few blacks who vote Democrat are “liberal”, they are mostly voting self-interest or out of resentment. Some Asian and Hispanic Americans are sincere liberals, but are usually followers not leaders.

    Liberalism is never found as a native plant in Africa, Asia or South America. It has transplanted itself to Westernized middle class elements of Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan but it is not clear how deep the roots have really sunk. Leftists, at least the third world “revolutionary” kind like Maduro or Castro, are not liberal either. They are almost always autocrats who may adopt some liberal slogans to bash the entrenched elites they are trying to replace, but they never really believe in those slogans.

  114. New England has vanished into its own mind, a literal ideology (literally a solipsistic and rule governed but self-referential belief system) that it is attempting to impose on the entire world (e.g. “nation building”).

    Nah, Counter, I don’t buy it. Of course, Harvard sends its minnows out into the world, but as a region in Massachusetts, in Boston, Springfield and others, they’re just now empowering their (relative to other cities) small Black populations. These are as prosecutors who don’t prosecute, Police Chiefs who direct no policing and making sure all the top positions from education to transportation to public works are filled to the brim with African Americans. Boston isn’t a National political power from where we sit, they’re too busy fucking up what we have here. The subways and T trains from MBTA derail, fail, transportation curtail, this week til September, the Red Line.

    The Boston-to-Portland Me. corridor is fixing to turn to Detroit rather than project any power out of New England. For proof, just look to Aryanna Pressley, who replaced the very White Joe Cuppiano, who was up there for 20 years, sitting in House Ways and Means directing the Federal bacon all over Boston.

    OT: Detroit Rejuvenation News GOLD

    ‘Like it’s still Jim Crow’: Detroit artist nabbed for city-commissioned mural alleges racism

    Tashif Turner, better known in the Detroit art scene by his pseudonym Sheefy McFly, was rounded up by police for damaging public property as he spray-painted a wall under the city viaduct on Wednesday.

    In attempt to clear up the misunderstanding, Turner told officers that he was hired by the city. He rushed to his bag to check if his permit was there, before the standoff got really heated.

    The artist said that he was glad he retained his cool while in police custody because he was afraid of being shot by police if the situation escalated.

    “I felt that pressure of becoming Trayvon Martin. They put me in jail to bully me. They would’ve beat me or even shot me if they had a opportunity,” he added.

    He said that he was deeply traumatized by the incident and was still unsure if he would finish the work.

    “I may go back next week, but I need some days to collect myself and figure out how I can be safe. I feel racially profiled and bullied,” he told the Free Press.

    Lance, meanwhile, defended the conduct of police. “The bottom line is he had a permit, but he wasn’t able to produce it. His actions resulted in what occurred next,” she said.

    I do think city rejuvenation work is dangerous, but mostly because of “brazzers”, not cops.

    If you look at eg city-data.com for Portland, ME you see that Portland (population < 70k) has: a much higher fraction of black residents (9%) than ME (< 2%); also a relatively high fraction of foreign born (15%); crime rates slightly higher than the national average — re crime rates, one could say that's surprising, because we're talking about NE after all, where you expect lower crime rates; or maybe not so much — Portland is, by a wide margin, ME's largest city, which is where you normally see more crime, and more non-whites, who have higher crime rates generally.

    One could not unreasonably say it is likely that the author, NYT editors, and the mayor do not really seriously believe that unfiltered migration from Africa is good for Portland — surely they're aware of the intractable problems seen in US cities with significant black populations.

    So what is the explanation for such patently absurd stories and public posturing?

    Common suggestions: 'race realism' is the third rail of American politics, and no politician (or Nobel Prize winner) can afford to touch it; ala Theodore Dalrymple, this kind of thing can be seen as propaganda designed to humiliate and subjugate the population; in the age of mass media, proving their moral fitness to lead is so important to politicians that they abandon reason and common sense.

    In any case, modern ‘mass politics’ has degenerated to the point that “public servants” clearly no longer act in the interest of the taxpaying public/citizenry.

    New York was strongly pro-free labor and anti-slavery prior to the Civil War, as were its customers up the Hudson and West along the Erie Canal. The riots during the Civil War were anti-draft rather than pro-slavery, and were largely disregarded by the governing class of New York City and the Union. While NYC wasn’t as as strong a source of propaganda as was New England, it provided the men and materiel needed to win the Civil War for the North. Its willingness to do so was clear before the war, and the two regions (New England and NYC) were de-facto allies in that sense.

    Today
    The two regions are again allies. NYC has very little productive industry, and lives off taxes and government supported industries (the financial industry). New England is still trying to impose civilization on the rest of the world, especially the white sinners who, as during Reconstruction, it regards as the only real humans and thus as responsible for pretty much everything. According to Unz American Pravda series, much of the Jewish establishment supports this ideology enough to make money from it (“There’s money in poverty!”). As do most of the POC establishments and quite a few of the descendants of the of the 1840-1920 immigration wave and, of course, the members of the current immigration wave. NYC as an entity will do pretty much anything to make money [1], and is again allied with New England.

    “Take away the other two legs (Classical culture and European blood/folkways), and it falls.”

    Why exactly? Because you can cherry-pick the things you don’t like and blame them on Christianity?

    Classical culture had a good deal of the same mass slave importation that gave us the magical diversity rainbow of the antebellum American South. And that huge influx of European blood/folkways coming in by way of Burgundian and Vandal invasions didn’t do much for the empire either, just as those who resisted Viking berserkers weren’t fighting for classical culture or because they were against European blood, per se. For that matter, I suspect Taiwanese and Korean Christians will likely do just fine regardless of how much or how little European blood/folkways or classical culture they absorb.

    And for what it’s worth, the parts of Europe (and America) that today are most strongly resisting the rainbow crush seem to be doing it precisely because their Christian culture matters to them (however much their ecclesiastical superiors would like them to get with the times). They also happen to be the ones who have not yet decided to outsource procreation to the Third World. Maybe that’s cherry-picking on my part, but since you seem to be OK with that, then two can play at that game.

    Of course, Harvard sends its minnows out into the world, but as a region in Massachusetts, in Boston, Springfield and others, they’re just now empowering their (relative to other cities) small Black populations.

    Looks that way, but looks can be deceiving. You didn’t see New England import a substantial number of Black slaves up North after the Civil War either. The New England idea is to reorganize the rest of America (and now the world), _not_ to reorganize New England. Since its inhabitants (or at least its aristocracy) occupy the peak of intellectual and moral accomplishment (try arguing with them and see for yourself), they obviously don’t require reorganization.

    A truly cynical person would say that in the current go-round the New Englanders have traded support for the POC for absence of the POC in New England, and that the current Democratic internal war simply means that the POC (with over 50% of the next generation POC) don’t think they need New England anymore, are sick to death of prancing around things while wearing whiteface, and are simply stepping up and taking what they want. A New Englander would work hard on doublethink and disgorge several paragraphs of Newspeak, which is about what’s happened.

    One of the real ironies of history is that Roman government in Italy was terminated by a Roman Emperor in Constantinople. The Ostrogoths had apparently managed to replace the Italian Roman aristocracy without destroying that bureaucracy, and the general population was still governed under late Imperial forms, and the late Imperial economy more or less staggered on. Justinian invaded, the force being under Belisarius, and occupied Rome. The Ostrogoths besieged Rome and destroyed the city’s aqueducts, which were never rebuilt, and that was the end of Rome as a city. Roman government in the rest of Italy vanished during the remainder of the war. War was no longer practical for Rome because of recurrent plague, but Justinian didn’t know that until the plague hit and destroyed his military capability.
    One could tell several stories like that about late Imperial Rome.
    Point being: helping people can do things they are sure are right (e.g. liberating Italy from the Barbs), and end up destroying what they are trying to protect. After which, something new is born, but the people trying to help don’t give it birth. Last time New England tried to help, they became a backwater in US politics for several decades, and remain an economic backwater still. Time before that (POTUS VanBuren), same political result. This time? They’ll be lucky to survive as a region, for reasons you point out.

    My point is that you aren’t running your attempted insurgency correctly. You can’t look at one designated enemy and ignore all the others. Successful insurgencies assure their own base _first_, then look for the opposition – all the opposition. This doesn’t guarantee success, but accepting enemies as neutrals or friends guarantees failure. Example: During WW II, French Resistance in Vichy France was in the beginning part communist. Non-communist resistance groups who tried to join a United Front found out that they’d been doxed ( in the modern sense ) to the German internal police. By war’s end, the Resistance was communist, and after the war the former Resistance had a nice little massacre of any remaining opposition. That’s what happens when you think that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

    The descendants of New England Puritans were not over-represented, agreed, but they were always on the Left and always gave legitimacy to that cause. Could they have done differently? Hard to say, point is that they didn’t, and they had the prestige to stop any attempt to say who or what was legitimate in education. They are allies with the 1890s and post 1968 groups, not dictators over them. Treat them as friends or even neutrals and they’ll sell you out every time. And if they do that, you lose, every time.

    The Jewish percentage tend to be deadwood political officers. They’d have a hard time keeping the corporation functional without the New Englanders to provide knowledge and hands on work. And, again, the New Englanders tend to strongly agree with the Jewish types. The Jewish population just isn’t large enough to staff management of the large corporations; without allies, they’d be ineffective.

Most of them are likable people, but that is not the issue. The issue is we don’t need them, whether they are likable or not.
    “They do jobs Americans won’t do” is a lie. If garbage collectors were making $50 an hour, there would be a lineup around the block of people wanting the job. Immigration is the reserve army of capital. It is used to suppress wages and increase housing costs.

    As to your comment, obviously Christianity is a core component of the Western Civilization that we have. But while very helpful in particular respects–for example in pushing detribalization, neighborliness and cooperation–Christianity didn’t “build Western Civilization” de novo, but rather on top of the white genome. Western Civilization is fundamentally the civilization of smart, de-tribalized, cooperative–and yes, Christianized–white people.

    In this case, we have the test cases. Christianity was not limited to Europe. It was in diverse places like Ethiopia–not Western Civilization. Blacks in the United States were inducted into Christianity, and in many cases are very serious Christians–again not Western Civilization.

    And there were these other New Englanders who were in effect defeated at Pearl Harbor:
    https://racehist.blogspot.com/2009/08/paul-gottfried-hates-wasp-people.html

    Brewster [Sr.], described by one acquaintance as “a crustacean McKinleyite Republican,” entertained many members of Congress at his Catoctin retreat. [. . .] Brewster’s politics, however, were too extreme to be openly expressed in the mainstream GOP. His anti-Communism was so rabid and sweeping that his son remembered that “if I were considerate enough to visit him in Washington with a friend whose parents were somehow associated with the Roosevelt administration, it was natural that he should refer quite regularly to my ‘Communist friends.’” [. . .] Brewster’s political opinions and his business contacts with Germany led the FBI to start a file on him. While various information testified that he admired the Nazi system and claimed to have met personally with Hitler on visits to Germany, the FBI’s investigation revealed little aside from the fact that “BREWSTER possessed a great hatred for Jews and regarded them with suspicion at all times.”

    Brewster’s views on race and religion were perhaps most fully expressed in the works of his good friend the eugenicist Lothrop Stoddard, who believed that Anglo-Saxon civilization and America’s ancestral purity were under threat from inferior races. Stoddard was, like Brewster, a Harvard Law School graduate and sometime resident of Brookline, Massachusetts. (Brookline was, not coincidentally, the location of the nation’s first country club.) Stoddard’s works included evocative titles such as The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy and The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace of the Under-Man.

    American society, according to Brewster and Stoddard, was a racial aristocracy under threat [. . .] Many upper-class East Coast gentlemen shared the view that snobbery and racial exclusion were necessary to preserve their elite culture, even if they stopped short of Stoddard’s conclusion that “race cleansing is the obvious starting-point for race betterment.” Although Brewster’s virulent racial opinions were welcome in polite society, most of his peers expressed themselves in more decorous terms.

    Your post is a “point and sputter” piece about Brewster.

    Consider the same idea from the other side of the ownership contest: “Whiteness must be abolished.” It’s more thorough, let us say, than any of the Brewster quotes. In practice, it would be about the same – one side wins decisively, the other vanishes. The industrial society the Europeans developed turns out to be very had to live in for Europeans, harder yet if you’re not European, and Brewster’s attempt to preserve that society as it was would have meant a very difficult life for non-Europeans. Conversely, try living in Harlem low cost housing. You can’t do it, you’d be shot for something as simple as calling for medical aid when one of your neighbors has a screeming fit again.

    So why the “point and sputter” about Brewster and not the “abolished” statement? Why is “whiteness must be abolished” an obvious moral and ethical truism, but Brewster’s statements too horrible to even restate? Who died and made you a god?

    Further, what is the “point and sputter” supposed to establish? That Brewster was all New Englanders, and that New England could therefore not have allied with New York City? Not likely. The people who took Brewster out were New Englanders, they won the fight, and now support abolishing whiteness to such an extent that they’re willing to support organized street fighters, an end to free speech, and the institution of a totalitarian government. Moreover, they do that from what they consider to be high moral grounds, rather like the Nazis prior to WW II. If you’ve proven anything, it is that times change.

    As to racial demographics, in terms of ground level politics it’s simple: The New England post-Brewster aristocracy tried to prevent resistance from within New England by keeping POC out and keeping faces in the visual media white. Worked, too. They justified that internally as a device for ensuring the greater good. New Englanders have always done well by doing good.

    So: an alliance between New England and The Empire State. This would be the third time New England has tried to reorganize the rest of the US, and the second time they’ve tried allying with New York _and_ importing enough foreigners to change US demographics. Pretty damned boring, actually, if you dead people don’t excite you.

Pedestrians appreciate things, motorists hardly notice or care.

    Kunstler often says that American elites, time and time again, since the 1940’s have often celebrated European style towns and cities, while back home they approve increasingly unlovable “modern” architecture and planning.

    Well, America had tons of cheap oil in the 50’s and 60’s; not until the 70’s would Texas oil “plays” start to dry up (which had a major effect on the American psyche of the 70’s; Boomers were entering the workforce and beginning to start families, and suddenly we couldn’t count on cheap and plentiful American oil anymore?).

    Suburbs have been around for Millennia, but the car-oriented approach to both suburban and urban areas only became feasible when large numbers of people had cars, and had cheap and accessible gas.

    In the pre-car era, racial segregation developed in the South with a rather ingenious design; on Akinokure.blogspot.com, there’s a great post about how Southern communities were physically designed in such a way as to limit encounters between whites and blacks. It’s not just that people chose to avoid the other race, it’s that the built environment encouraged it.

    The Northeast and Midwest had no precedent for this sort of thing, and after blacks moved into urban areas in large numbers in the early-mid 20th century, whites opted to build more rings of suburbs to flee to. But increasingly, modern whites don’t idealize living a car based life-style in a post-war suburb; they want the European experience of well-manicured urban areas with ever growing gentrification pushing the “riff-raff” (typically black) out to the suburbs. I know that recent generations of whites are much more pro-mass transit than Silents and Boomers, two generations who came of age when the early post-war suburbs were brand new and attractive, and “everyone” expected to use their cars for all local travel (personally, I do tend to think that the 50’s and 60’s suburbs are still more pleasant than the atrocious McMansion filled and cul-de-sac ridden difficult to navigate crap of the last 30 years).

    Sunbelt whites are less likely to openly say brain-dead things about the joys of diversity, but it doesn’t mean they’re effectively doing anything to stop the invasion. And most Southern whites are resigned to their states having substantial black populations, they just try and deal with it via voter disfranchisement and mass incarceration, to keep blacks from getting too much power. White elites everywhere are failing us, big time. Far too often, since the late 70’s, way too many people are complacent and basically accept things that suck, and things that are obviously corrupt.

    It’s a rich white liberal thing. Mass transit is a good thing for the proles, and the proles should be forced to use it. But there’s no power on earth that would persuade a rich white liberal to catch a bus or a train.

    Whites are either greedy or exhibit compulsive altruism, make up your mind please

    Compulsive altruism is mostly just compulsive virtue-signalling. There are lots of white people who would do anything at all to help those less fortunate than themselves – anything at all as long as it doesn’t cost them money. They are quite generous with other people’s money though.

    No parody. You’re looking at the clowns. Try looking at the elephants. Every adherent to Judaism could migrate to Israel tomorrow, and it wouldn’t change New England’s beliefs or influence even a little bit. Remember that New England started the Civil War without help from the Ashkenazim, who were still in Russian at that time.

    It’s rather surprising that although there are conspiracy theorists who blame the Jews for everything, others who blame Freemasons, other who blame the commies but if you really want to find a bunch of crazed nation-wrecking fanatics you can’t do better than the Puritans.

    There are liberal hot spots in New England but the rest is small town America and that isn’t going anywhere.

    Quite a few people believe this, but it isn’t quite so. rural areas are losing jobs (as cities divert capital flow to nonproductive uses). This has stopped family formation, somce women won’t marry men who can’t support them and, even if they would marry, that would doom the couple to starvation under the currrent welfare system. I’ve actually seen this happen, a woman with pregnancy whose mother advised her _not_ to marry the father, as welfare would pay more (that was in Maryland, for what it’s worth). The family situation in rural areas is apparently much like that of Baltimore a decade back. ( https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/america-first-begins-with-families-first-tucker-carlson )

    The place I’m living now is ‘way out in small town America. The nearest town was clearly once thriving, but now downtown mainstreet has several abandoned buildings that seem to be held up by their scaffolding, although that is most likely intended to protect pedestrians from falling bricks. The country around the town is like the hinternlands of a country at war: filled with reffugees from urban areas, quite a few of them living in campers, and effectively no law enforcement. Sort of a rural equivalent of LA, except that the refugees don’t follow the CATO4321 rule. They are generally people who have been very badly hurt but are still functional enough to live in the woods.

    People born here don’t quite know what to do, there being no jobs and their churches having deserted them. The White Death from diseases of despair are highest in the country, drug use amounting for much of these deaths, but suicide being a signifiicant conributer.

    So: Rural America’s stuff is out to lunch today. It’s been eaten by the cities. Even the place i live, right on the thruway and with several corporate plants and a considerable outsourcing business. Don’t count on it to come to the rescue by preseving American society, because it can’t. Likely, it will play an essential part in the next Western reorganization, if only because it supplies most of the American troops, but that will be a reorganization, not a restoration.

The people who took Brewster out were New Englanders, they won the fight, and now support abolishing whiteness to such an extent that they’re willing to support organized street fighters, an end to free speech, and the institution of a totalitarian government. Moreover, they do that from what they consider to be high moral grounds, rather like the Nazis prior to WW II. If you’ve proven anything, it is that times change.

    My theory is that none of this shit would be tolerated if we as Americans actually had to, you know, pay for the benefits the government pays out. If that were the case then actual welfare payments would have to be paid for with actual taxes, and everyone would be throwing a fit at the cost to pay for these refugees. “Oh, you want to bring in another 10,000 Congolese and Somalis to your town? Cool. We’ll just have to raise everyone’s taxes by $1,000 to pay for their schooling and housing subsidies and food stamps and some new jail cells and government-mandated interpreters.”

    Instead we just add another $600 billion a year to the national credit card (it was $1 trillion/year for most of Obama’s presidency) and push the bill on down to the next generation. It allows us to be as “generous” as we could care to be with no financial consequences whatsoever.

    Another aspect is that most people do not know, how much third-world immigrants and especially refugees cost in welfare, schooling, medical costs, crime etc. . I read on a another site, that a few years ago there was a study in Norway, that estimated the average lifetime-cost of a non-Western immigrant at more than 100 000$. If the government/press were honest about this, then everyone could see, that 500 Congolese and Angolans would total to a cost of about 50 000 000$ over their lifetimes, not including their descendants (since we are talking about people from Subsahara Africa, the cost probably is higher than that).

    The ones that made out best were city governments and people connected with them. That’s where the rich come from today.
    Nobody seems to have noticed, but ‘way back when computers were only mainframe and OS 360 was state of the art, computers were used for population control. That’s why their development wasn’t regulated or stopped, as space flight was regulated and stopped (except for NASA showbiz projects). The Facebook / Google censorship is _exactly_ what computers were meant to do from the first — population control. If you wanted to make money, computers were a way to do that because government left them alone.
    By the same token, Wal-Mart looks a lot like an attempt to destroy local stores — more population control. Wal-Mart was permitted to do what it did to destroy the lower middle class.
    This stuff is just the 1930s endlessly replayed. Same cons, same Left pretenders actually practicing fascism, same cry-bully tactics, same “technology is evil unless in permits more population control by the infallible government”, even the re-introduction of street fighters and indoctrination as education. This is worse than evil, it’s boring.

    The real beneficiaries are the cities, which found themselves obsolete after container shipping and telecommunications made centralization too expensive. That’s why the cities are gathering in almost all of the recent immigrants. The cities are running vote farms, financing themselves with relief funds for the homeless (CATO4321 people) and the unemployable. A few decades ago it was pointed out that, infertile as they are, the Republicans had more kids per capita than did the Democrats. At that point, the Democrats (always long term thinkers in a loony sort of way) decided to make up the difference with immigration, and funnel the foreigners into US cities. The cities have been living on life support since the late 1960s, and that’s the benefit to them: life itself. Hard to come up with a better benefit than that.

    The beggar/subsidy con never did generate enough income to restore urban prosperity, and the Democrats were incompetent anyway (more so with time), the result being that city infrastructure (and government infrastructure of all sorts) is in bad shape. Example: The Left Coast government has had to import maybe 36K out of a national total of maybe 60K CATO4321 people to make their city budget work. California has just started stripping its state wide power company of capital through lawsuits over fires that the State’s poor forestry is responsible for. State government has also failed to build the basins necessary to hold this year’s water surplus, presumably spending the money on fighting the Feds over vote farm immigration.

    Systems like this, under-maintained and run by empty suits, work until they don’t, and when they finally fail under what should be a trivial insult, it turns out that everything is worn out and the capital to rebuild it has been wasted. Think of an old and poorly maintained used car with body rust.

    When that happens, the city’s voting farm won’t help it, and their boring pleas won’t even be heard from sheer ennui.

    Look through the top 100 corporations in the USA. Compare the Jewish percentage to the New England WASP percentage.

    The Jewish percentage tend to be deadwood political officers. They’d have a hard time keeping the corporation functional without the New Englanders to provide knowledge and hands on work. And, again, the New Englanders tend to strongly agree with the Jewish types. The Jewish population just isn’t large enough to staff management of the large corporations; without allies, they’d be ineffective.

    I’m sorry, but that is a brain-dead comment. You’re actually saying that the Jews running/owning the companies don’t count….

    I’ve been on a lot of prestigious campuses in this country, as both student and faculty member. And descendants of New England Puritans are not over-represented.

    Same here, no kidding. Engineering of various sorts, humanity minors.
    The descendants of New England Puritans were not over-represented, agreed, but they were always on the Left and always gave legitimacy to that cause.

    No, they weren’t. Study the opinions of NW profs back in the 19th-early 20th centuries…..Academic culture back then was a lot more conservative…..Jews were the ones who radicalized Anglo-American academia……You know, the fabled long march through the institutions….

    New England is still trying to impose civilization on the rest of the world, especially the white sinners who, as during Reconstruction, it regards as the only real humans and thus as responsible for pretty much everything.

    Ah, serioius disagreement,and with reasons also! Not usually encountered, even here.

    a) Company ownership doesn’t count as much as you might think. Example: the old newspape barons (1930s) were forced, by a series of court decisions, to turn over control of the newsroom to their editorial staffs, who fundamentally disagreed with them in many cases. The old guard Anglo Saxon owners were forced out of ownership after WW II, and the influence of the corporations their group had founded was broken after WW II. Ownership isn’t the absolute control that the Left claims it is.
    A similar example is, of course, the Jewish fiasco with the Left, the working class, and in particular the communist control of the USSR. As was pointed out in unz.com recently, the Judaism has had two responses to government: Work for government if it will hire and protect their group, with top members being high level fianciers/consultants/estate managers/whatever. Work against government it it won’t do that. Jewish communism came from the decision of Cathrine the Great to fire the Jewish community as protected government employees and try to make them farmers (!!!). They picked up Western ideas concerning enlightened absolute monarchy and the superiority of organization by the State, changed the players areound, and Lo! the Jewish community would employ itselff as absolute monarch (vanguard party), and provide an enlightened despotism (revolutionary government) that would fix everything (including, in practice, the men and the cats).

    This policy was so disasterous that it ended up in WW II. After the 1919 Revolution, some 80% of the Central Committee was Jewish. By 1922 Stalin (non-Jewish) was General Secetary, by 1941 he was Premier, and somewhere in there he got control of the USSR. Jews were used as killers in the Secret Police, then killed themselves, and didn’t control the USSR. They got Russia again, briefly, after 1990, but they don’t run it now. They never had a chance — there just weren’t enough of them.
    The overall Bolshevick plan to provoke another World War dated from about 1920, and proved a disaser for the Jewish population in Europe and Russia.

    You seem to think that Jewish grops are ten feet tall. Their policy has been so wrong it would be funny if there weren’t so many dead people. The working class was never going to protect the Jewish establishment; it was going to protect itself. Provoking WW II while staying out of it was idiocy. World wars include everybody, pretty much by defintion. The contemporary plan, “replacing” the native population and assuming that nobody would notice, is idiocy. (a) of course peopel notice once the project nears completion, and (b) Jewish groups have succeeded only in Western populations, not elsewhere. Used to be that Jewish groups could percariously exist in islam, but that’s gone too.. No West, no Jewish groups. Either the project succeeds or it fails — either wy, the Jewish groups lose. Idiots.

    The Jewish groups are important, but not God. Right now you think them so formidable that they are weakly godlike, and you’re are acting like you are accusing me of atheism. Isn’t quite true. They’re human and must be treated as such.

    b) Elizabeth Warren was born in Oklahoma, but that was a long time ago (1949). She’s now a convert to New England in beliefs and actions. It would appear that she was a RINO who went full Democratic in 1996. Converts are notirously enthusiastic. Aske her about the need to covert or destroy “deplorables” and why she’d want to do that. Again, I think it’s a foolish project, but I’m not from New England, nor have I been converted.

    c) The New Englanders I saw were always on the Left. Dont’ recall seeing any c.a. AD 1900, maybe I didn’t look.
    Again, New Englander have, since their ancestors arrived, been noted for attempts to convert other groups to their way of life, which is a bit more communitarian than others. Alliance with Jewish groups, who are also communitarian, and the adoption by Jewish groups of the “racial equality” thesis developed in New England after the Van Buren disaaster caused the Whig dispersal was simply picking up a poltical theme shown to be effective. Remember that much of the Southern slave economy was staffed by Jewish people, as, apparently, was much of theslave trade (to include “white slavery” of Europeans by various Islamic groups, so there was no intrinsic jewish antipathy towards slavery or support for racial equality, nor is there now.

    d) New York allied itself with New England, although (as you say, not strongly) prior to the Civil War. It had litle choice. That alliance might be breaking today, BTW. The influx of POC into New England is a sign of that, as is the rejection of whites (pardon, “whiteness”) in the Democratic Party by POCs. Once again, a Jewish establishment strategic project has proven disastrous for them and, this time, for their allies. It’s a replay of the USSR fiasco.

    e) As far as necks go: you are pesenting yourself as a fanatical anti-semite! I’m starting to see why that side lost.

    Old Yiddish joke:
    1930: Two Jews sit daily on a park bench. One reads Yiddish press, one reads Nazi propaganda. Yiddish reader is sad and passive, nazi reader is in good spirits and laughs occasionally. Yiddis read, after a few months, asked Naxi reader why he reads such trahs, and why he should be laughing.
    Nazi propaganda reader replies:
    I used to read the Yiddish press, and all it ever did was talk of Jewish disasters. Now I read the Nazi press, which says that we own everything, conrol everything, and are about to destroy all of our enemies! Of course I’m happy! Who wouldn’t be?”

  272. Now, if your study shows that NE WASPs are as powerful as the Jews, then we can talk…..

    First, forget the NE WASP bit. It’s discriminatory. Anglo saxons were white, the W in WASP means the acronym is a backronym, chosen to depect the group descried as subhuman and annoying but not deadly — like wasps. You don’t think so? Try referring to trans-sexuals as she/he/it, not pronouncing the “/” and tell me how it works out, or perhaps refer to married men at work using the acronym for Modern Fsthers, and perhaps the women as Modern Females. If they love it, you continue using WASP.

    Second, my point is that New England (the right hand bump on the _red_ line, not the yellow) is allied with the Jewish establishment (which, right now, is NYC). As far as I can tell, contemporary Jewish Establishment policy in the US is a slightly modified version of the old Progressive ideology, pretty much taken from New England back in the 1800s.

    A standard Jewish Establishment tactic has been taking over a native political movement. Lenin took over land for peasants, for example. The USSR was supposedly a collective of local governments. Why not do the same thing in the US?

    I’d suggest that the New Englanders are dominant in New England, and the Jewish Establishment (probably several such) are dominant in NYC. Again, the Jewish establishment is limited by small numbers — it _needs_ allies.

    As for the “do detailed research in the literature and report back” bit — Great idea. Your suggestion. We have to negotiate hourly rates, though.

    The influence of British Israelism doesn’t get enough attention nowadays. It used to be enormously popular with the ruling elites of both Britain and the U.S. Much of this WASP vs. Jew stuff makes more sense once you realize that WASPs used to think they were Jews.

    Incidentally, this is why Americans came to circumcise their sons. It’s not health and hygiene; it’s Jewish law.

    Do a detailed study analyzing how NE WASPs are actually running the USA.

    You know, that might actually be a good idea in its own right. Ron Unz’s “American Pravda” series does just enough on that to show that the results of your proposed study would be interesting.
    My posts to date have been from watching things run. Plenty of non-New Englanders, but the New Englanders seem to always be there as authority figures, backing up whatever horrors have been perpetrated. Just how influential are they, really? That would be a major study, though, and I don’t really have the resources, not even access to a major library or a serious idea of where to start. Any idea where to get funding or information?

    I doubt that books on Jewish activities would given information on Anglo Saxon influence, however. On reading a description of Slezkine’s rather cosmic _Jewish Century_, I find his theses (as described) to be just another Jewish triumphalist literature. You might as well try to find out about the influence of Estonia in the 1930s by watching “Triumph of the Will”; it’s just not covered.
    However, I will comment that Jewish policy during the 20th and early 21st Century was an unmitigated disaster for those in the Jewish religion, whether practicing or not. Having lost their niche as irreplaceable specialists with government patronage, and having lost Rabbinical rule over their own communities, the Jewish establishment tried and failed to establish direct rule over the West (that is, Communism failed spectacularly three times: (1) severe demographic losses among all Russians, including Jewish Russians, during WW II, (2) purge of Jewish personnel from the Communist Party by Stalin after the war, and finally (3) complete discrediting of Communist rule in the West after Solzhenitsyn’s works, which ended any chance that the proletariat could be made into supporters of Judaism. The subsequent attempt to simply displace Western populations will, at best, replace these populations with new populations that, in their home countries, do not permit Judaism to be practiced or those of Jewish descent to be influential. If I were the strategist responsible for that, I’d change my name, undergo plastic surgery, move to another country, get a job as a technical fertilizer operator (TFO) and hope. I certainly wouldn’t consider myself ten feet tall and invincible, as Slezkine and similar seem to.

    BTW, I would appreciate it if you could use “Anglo Saxon” instead of the old “WASP”, which was clearly intended to be derogatory – note that all Anglo Saxons are by definition white, so the acronym is pretty clearly a derogatory backronym.

    In DH Fisher’s Albion’s Seed, most Presidents have been Scots-Irish or post-Puritan.
