From the New York Times:

The Top Jobs Where Women Are Outnumbered by Men Named John

By CLAIRE CAIN MILLER, KEVIN QUEALY and MARGOT SANGER-KATZ APRIL 24, 2018

The number of chief executives named John — a group that is overwhelmingly white — is very similar to the number of female executives. There are even more Jameses.

… The prevalence of men in power with particular names is revealing not only of skewed gender representation, but also of the whiteness of many institutions of American politics, culture and education. White men continue to dominate many categories of leadership in America, as our Times colleagues showed in an analysis in 2016.

Now that the New York Times has shone the spotlight on the whiteness of the Fortune 500 names, I am looking forward to the NYT’s followup on the Forbes 400 of the Jewishness of the first and/or last names of America’s billionaires.

They are going to do that analysis, right?

  1. The results from AZ08 are starting to make me seriously wonder whether the Trump administration will turn out to be a disaster for the nationalist cause rather than it’s savoir. Because I’m not seeing anything to be hopeful about from here.

    8 p.m.

    Republican Debbie Lesko has won the special election in Arizona's 8th Congressional District, keeping the U.S. House seat in GOP control.

    The former state senator on Tuesday defeated Hiral Tipirneni, a former emergency room physician. Tipernini had hoped to replicate surprising Democratic wins in Pennsylvania, Alabama and other states in a year where opposition to President Donald Trump's policies have boosted the party's chances in Republican strongholds.
    , @J.Ross
    Oh, so you fell for this ridiculous idea that Trump hasn't won unless he's won every little contest, and by the right margin?
    As I said before, Democrats are cheating, we will lose every election where we do not turn out more than they can fake, and if that's the case after all these elections decided by just enough to avoid a recount, then we deserve to lose. This going blind staring at patterns of margins is silly. I was a leftist and dutiful Democrat when George W Bush was massively unpopular and John Kerry was -- we were constantly assured -- "keeping his powder dry." They used that metaphor pretty much every day in that campaign.
    There's an obvious subtext in all the analyses of this small local election: Trump versus the UniParty, the UniParty against the People. Neither establishment party can demonstrate democratic legitimacy. All the energy was for Bernie and Trump, hostile outsiders who were promising to burn stuff down. Given that the Democrats have decided to have frequent attacks on the Constitution with excellent media coverage I am expecting them to do worse than expected overall. But if establishment Republicans, who spent their time in office back-stabbing their President and insulting their constituents, get sent home, I will neither miss their active hostility nor worry about their replacements.
    , @Ed
    Republicans need to turn out or it’ll be a wipe out. Also women that have in the past voted for republicans are switching. Issue is Trump’s vanity. Women tend to be more sensitive to news coverage tone and with Trump in the news everyday, loudly and negatively, that has had an impact.

    Trump does best when he goes dark.
    , @Svigor
    I've always been skeptical about Trump as "savior" of nationalism. Trump's election was the trophy; Trump himself was only speculatively so. We pulled the lever for a nationalist outsider once, and we can do it again. Conversely, the outsider won campaigning on nationalism once, and another can do it again.
    , @Colleen Pater
    Trump won when he managed to draw the Media into such a wall bias at the mere suggestion that the law and peoples will be followed all doubt was removed that the media is anything other than a propaganda machine- fake news was instantly turned back on them and is now a synonym for big media, he light as well have passed a law that from now on all media outlets must affix the title Ministry of Truth under their logo.
    He proceeded to finally shatter the hope and delusion of the conservative voters forever when he drew GOP cucks into the open during the primary, finally demonstrating for conservatives that the GOP is a controlled cuck shill party and that politics is hopeless, democracy dead, and everything about race. That thye would rather a Clinton or a communist won than the platform they had been fraudulently running on for decades actually got passed.

    When he proved to us all we were not the only ones and pulled off a historic upset changing the left right boundaries forever,not only on the electoral map but also on the political alignment of issues map, he caught the deep state off guard and managed to draw the deep state and civil service into open rebellion of an elected president and caught them in an encyclopedia of criminal conspiracies which everyone know they will not serve a day in prison forever exposing that alex jones and co are more right than crazy, that we dont live in a democracy, that we dont live under a rule of law that their is such a thing as a deep state that our elected officials take it as a given that not obeying them can get you killed or destroyed, that they are so above the law they can wage open war on a popular president, that the media civil service NGOs academia EU judiciary military organized religion etc are all in support of the deep state and could care less about rule of law and will of the people.

    He has since trolled the law enforcement and the judiciary into open partisanship and forever shattered the fairytale that we have an independent judiciary that investigates and judges based on rule of law.

    He has also several times worked to legitimize points of view on a national and international scale not heard in polite company in 100 years. That race is real and it matters. That the holocaust is not the national religion, that nationalism throughout the world is a good thing, that white people have a right to homelands too. That the far right is at the very least no worse than the mainstream left.That authority ought to be questioned because they are lying most of the time.That globalism is not good for the whites.That tech is not your friend. That third world immigration is an invasion orchestrated to destroy the west by certain people who can be pointed to, and who have no alternative legitimate explanation for their scheme other than destruction of us.That china is our enemy, Islam is our enemy, Israel is not our ally in any lasting sense, that the EU is not our partner, That christianity is leftist most of the time.

    In short he has awakened a critical mass of conservatives to the fact that if they want to live and have their children have better prospects than south african whites they are going to have to go to war not politics.
    Trump will accomplish little legislatively, he probably wont be the last candidate thats outside the overton window. likely we will see the end of the GOP as the conservative party and increasingly strident right wing leaders throughout the west culminating in the ones that will lead us into war against the left

    Who owes it all to Jews in Cleveland, sounds like.


    Dr. Hiral Tipirneni has dedicated her life to serving her community, solving problems, and improving lives. She’s served the Phoenix area for more than 20 years as an emergency room physician, cancer research advocate and, most recently, on the board of directors of the Maricopa Health Foundation, which supports the county’s public health care delivery system.

    Hiral came to America from India with her family at the age of three. Her parents were seeking the American dream because they knew the United States was a place where, if you worked hard and lived by the rules of democracy, you could be successful no matter where you came from.

    Her family struggled at first, but Hiral’s father eventually secured a job in his field of structural engineering in Ohio, where she and her brother were raised in a working-class suburb of Cleveland. Hiral’s mother, a social worker, was the director of a downtown Cleveland senior center and initiated its Meals on Wheels program.

    Frankly the companies releasing top grossing movies or companies that are in the Fortune 500, shouldn’t be worrying about diversity. They should be worrying about results. If these executives were NOT producing or the directors were releasing box office bombs and these companies still kept the exact same white man as a CEO or director, that would be discrimination.

    Don’t hate on people who are good at what they do. Are you really going to suggest that these companies should go out and hire Marissa Mayer or Elizabeth Holmes? There are many talented women out there, but did the NYT do the work to establish that the pool of talent is equal or greater in size? How many MBAs from the top-10 schools (Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, etc) have gone to women over the last 30 years? How many female executives with any title of VP or greater are there in the workforce versus how many men? What percentage of female leaders have left the workforce at least temporarily to raise children?

    These are the type of questions that should be asked as part of a serious journalistic investigation instead of this crass “Gotcha” journalism. Do better NYT.

These articles are about virtue signaling and bashing white man as some kind of evil parasite trying to be cruel to anyone who doesn't look like them. It's as if white men have some secret club with a secret handshake and we sit around all day trying to figure out how to keep woman and people of color "in their place". AND it seems that the NYT writes the same article everyday.

    Jewish given names tend to be "stickier" than gentiles. Jewish tradition is to only use the names of dead relatives. Baby's more likely to be named after great-grandfather rattan than father or grandfather. So, the corpus of names tend to turn over slower on a generational basis.

    Plus Jews, like all upper-class whites, tend to have kids later in life. So the time in between generations is extended.

  8. I still think the most interesting name data related discussion in a long time, might have been linked somewhere here back in 2016, was the exploration of donors to the presidential candidates by name. The names that, at least to a certain point in time, were most disproportionately associated with the various candidates were highlighted, and I think most overlooked it but one part of that data was really amazing.

    It’s surreal that so many names that most disproportionately supported John Kasich (again, in donating money) such as “Rodney” and “Martin” somehow fit so well, psychologically, as the people who would be Kasich supporters. It’s not that those names were just the most very common names for white males either, not even in some sense of being Southern vs Northern names or something like that. (Names for Trump/other Republicans just seemed like generic white males, Hillary donors were obvious ethnic names or boring middle-aged to older white female names, Bernie supporters younger males etc. Really the Kasich data stood out, at an intuitive level)

    This video will be profoundly disturbing to Jews for two reasons. One, because it shows that working-class white men have more integrity than high-ranking Jewish women. Two, because it shows that white, working-class men will not allow themselves to be pushed around by bossy Jewish moms. This is an axe to the very roots of the special Jewish boy/Mother relationship in which the mother rules with absolute authority. "How dare some lowly, non-Phd-candidate-at-MIT-Gentile question my Mom?"

    She finds the officer's behavior "very disappointing" because it "ruins" her family's Passover. Well so what? Tough beans. Why is it that you don't you find your law-breaking kid's behavior disappointing?

    Unfortunately, the Jewish takeaway from this encounter will be that they need to insinuate themselves into dominant positions in local police heirarchies across America, the better to enjoy their holidays without the bother of corruption-free Law and Order.

She should be charged with trying to intimidate a police officer and relieved of any and all public offices or legal and educational positions (other than of course her starring role in that video!). Shocking behavior, but probably all too common.

    Amazingly, I actually had an alleged "heart surgeon" try to pull the "Do you know who I am?" routine with me over some little thing when I was working in tourism.

  17. Belatedly realizing the magnitude of Jewish privilege has created political dilemmas for me that I still don’t know how to resolve. That one small ethno-religious group has such enormous power in the West, and that this fact is nonetheless missing from our collective public self-understanding – that’s a prime example of “false consciousness”. Jews function like an invisible ruling class who have their internal disagreements, but who would be as one in opposing any attempt to make Jewish power per se, a theme of public discussion.

    So what then? I have no desire to be a Jew or live like a Jew, but apparently I cannot aspire to anything significant in life without forming some opinion of, and some relationship to, Jewishness, because money, media, academy, politics, diplomacy, and who knows what else, all seem to be influenced by powerful Jewish cabals. That’s the shocking reality of the post-Christian West; Christianity is in decline, but the older religious identity, Judaism, thrives among the upper classes.

    James is the (Vulgar/Later Latin) form of the Hebrew name Yaʻaqov (known as Jacob in its earlier Latin form).[1] The name James came into the English language from the Old French variation James[2] of the late Latin name Iacomus. This was a Vulgar/Later Latin (proto-Romance) variant of the earlier Latin form Iacobus, from the New Testament Greek Ἰάκωβος (Iákōbos), from Hebrew יעקב (Yaʻaqov) (Jacob). The development Iacobus > Iacomus is likely a result of nasalization of the o and assimilation of the following b (i.e., intermediate *Iacombus) followed by simplification of the cluster mb through loss of the b. Diminutives include Jamie, Jim, Jimmy, Jimmie, Jimbo, Jimothy, and others.

    Wouldn't Ya'kov be the equivalent of Jacob? Also crypsis usually involves common Anglo names like John Brown or James Green. The plainer the name, the more the situation calls for scrutiny.

    , @Almost Missouri
    I looked at a long history of US baby names some time ago. As I recall, the boy names seemed to rise and fall over 20-50 years and then usually cycle back to an old name returning to favor. By contrast, the girl name sine wave was much shorter, maybe 5-20 years. Since the 1990s or so there were a lot of new girl name coinages like "Madison". The current crop is usual for being mostly "classic" names, except for "Harper", which I assume is homage to our patron saint of the Numinous Negro and the WWC Devil.

    The lack of new coinages is kind of encouraging. Maybe among people who reproduce, they are reacting against the loony transgenderism. Or maybe we are finally outgrowing the insane "feminist" girls-need-to-be-more-like-boys fallacy.

    Isn't naming your daughter 'Mia' like naming your son 'Johnny'? That is, wrong.

    The whole last-name first name trend is tailing off then, thankfully. I am really sick of that. Liam is just the last part of William, which is one of those things I was clueless about until someone pointed it out to me a few months back. Liam used to be just for skinny British guys who were in bands that were supposed to surpass the Beatles ... that shit never pans out anyway.

    Contrary to what A.M. wrote below, I think that the girl's naming cycles have an 80-year wavelength, not a short one. I've run into little ones named Sylvia now. Who's the last Sylvia you've met who doesn't walk with a cane? (Not to mention Sylvia's mother* who must be gumming down her creamed corn, as we speak, at the early bird special.)

    It's kind of neat really, as it makes you realize that the old lady Sylvia used to actually be a cute little kindergartener one day long ago.

    Agree and disagree.

    Generally the girl names have higher "fan out". They have more names in the traditional inventory, but fewer--excepting Mary--that continuously had a very high hit rate.

    Agree that the male names are more solid and conservative. But what i see here is a decline in the traditional American heavyweight male names:
    John/Jack, James, Robert, William, Richard, Michael, Matthew, Steven, George, Charles, David, Daniel, maybe a few others. William, James and Michael are definitely on that heavyweight train. But most of these current male names are ones that were 2nd, or more like 3rd tier. (I knew not a single Noah growing up and have never met a baby-boomer Noah.)

    Agree that the female side is less traditional, more trendy--mostly 2nd and 3rd tier--but that's more typical for the girls. There really weren't many female names that were continuously widely used. But except for the stupid Harper and faddish Mia, the list looks like some very traditional names. Ok Ava would be 4th tier but for Ava Gardner. But a bunch of these names wouldn't strike Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters as odd at all.

    Belatedly realizing the magnitude of Jewish privilege has created political dilemmas for me that I still don't know how to resolve. That one small ethno-religious group has such enormous power in the West, and that this fact is nonetheless missing from our collective public self-understanding - that's a prime example of "false consciousness". Jews function like an invisible ruling class who have their internal disagreements, but who would be as one in opposing any attempt to make Jewish power per se, a theme of public discussion.

    So what then? I have no desire to be a Jew or live like a Jew, but apparently I cannot aspire to anything significant in life without forming some opinion of, and some relationship to, Jewishness, because money, media, academy, politics, diplomacy, and who knows what else, all seem to be influenced by powerful Jewish cabals. That's the shocking reality of the post-Christian West; Christianity is in decline, but the older religious identity, Judaism, thrives among the upper classes.

    I still think the most interesting name data related discussion in a long time, might have been linked somewhere here back in 2016, was the exploration of donors to the presidential candidates by name. The names that, at least to a certain point in time, were most disproportionately associated with the various candidates were highlighted, and I think most overlooked it but one part of that data was really amazing.

    It's surreal that so many names that most disproportionately supported John Kasich (again, in donating money) such as "Rodney" and "Martin" somehow fit so well, psychologically, as the people who would be Kasich supporters. It's not that those names were just the most very common names for white males either, not even in some sense of being Southern vs Northern names or something like that. (Names for Trump/other Republicans just seemed like generic white males, Hillary donors were obvious ethnic names or boring middle-aged to older white female names, Bernie supporters younger males etc. Really the Kasich data stood out, at an intuitive level)

    Yeah, this immediately reminded me of the donor name comparison too. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the NYT didn’t get the idea for this article from reading iSteve and thinking, dammit, that hurt, so we must use this technique against them! Of course, the NYT version is hamfisted, flawed, not very revealing, and heavily promoted. The iSteve version was subtle, valid, illuminating and almost completely ignored.

    Jewish given names tend to be “stickier” than gentiles. Jewish tradition is to only use the names of dead relatives. Baby’s more likely to be named after great-grandfather rattan than father or grandfather. So, the corpus of names tend to turn over slower on a generational basis.

    Plus Jews, like all upper-class whites, tend to have kids later in life. So the time in between generations is extended.

    If Trump were a competent nationalist, his immigration executive orders would have been designed from the start to be as aggressive as Kennedy would likely permit, and a Kennedy charm and suck-up campaign would have been launched the moment Trump won the election. Are Trump's people regularly talking with Kennedy about who'd make good circuit court judges? Hiring his former clerks for top DOJ and WH Counsel positions?

    I looked at a long history of US baby names some time ago. As I recall, the boy names seemed to rise and fall over 20-50 years and then usually cycle back to an old name returning to favor. By contrast, the girl name sine wave was much shorter, maybe 5-20 years. Since the 1990s or so there were a lot of new girl name coinages like "Madison". The current crop is usual for being mostly "classic" names, except for "Harper", which I assume is homage to our patron saint of the Numinous Negro and the WWC Devil.

    The lack of new coinages is kind of encouraging. Maybe among people who reproduce, they are reacting against the loony transgenderism. Or maybe we are finally outgrowing the insane "feminist" girls-need-to-be-more-like-boys fallacy.

    The results from AZ08 are starting to make me seriously wonder whether the Trump administration will turn out to be a disaster for the nationalist cause rather than it's savoir. Because I'm not seeing anything to be hopeful about from here.

    Trump won when he managed to draw the Media into such a wall bias at the mere suggestion that the law and peoples will be followed all doubt was removed that the media is anything other than a propaganda machine- fake news was instantly turned back on them and is now a synonym for big media, he light as well have passed a law that from now on all media outlets must affix the title Ministry of Truth under their logo.
    He proceeded to finally shatter the hope and delusion of the conservative voters forever when he drew GOP cucks into the open during the primary, finally demonstrating for conservatives that the GOP is a controlled cuck shill party and that politics is hopeless, democracy dead, and everything about race. That thye would rather a Clinton or a communist won than the platform they had been fraudulently running on for decades actually got passed.

    [MORE]

    When he proved to us all we were not the only ones and pulled off a historic upset changing the left right boundaries forever,not only on the electoral map but also on the political alignment of issues map, he caught the deep state off guard and managed to draw the deep state and civil service into open rebellion of an elected president and caught them in an encyclopedia of criminal conspiracies which everyone know they will not serve a day in prison forever exposing that alex jones and co are more right than crazy, that we dont live in a democracy, that we dont live under a rule of law that their is such a thing as a deep state that our elected officials take it as a given that not obeying them can get you killed or destroyed, that they are so above the law they can wage open war on a popular president, that the media civil service NGOs academia EU judiciary military organized religion etc are all in support of the deep state and could care less about rule of law and will of the people.

    He has since trolled the law enforcement and the judiciary into open partisanship and forever shattered the fairytale that we have an independent judiciary that investigates and judges based on rule of law.

    He has also several times worked to legitimize points of view on a national and international scale not heard in polite company in 100 years. That race is real and it matters. That the holocaust is not the national religion, that nationalism throughout the world is a good thing, that white people have a right to homelands too. That the far right is at the very least no worse than the mainstream left.That authority ought to be questioned because they are lying most of the time.That globalism is not good for the whites.That tech is not your friend. That third world immigration is an invasion orchestrated to destroy the west by certain people who can be pointed to, and who have no alternative legitimate explanation for their scheme other than destruction of us.That china is our enemy, Islam is our enemy, Israel is not our ally in any lasting sense, that the EU is not our partner, That christianity is leftist most of the time.

    In short he has awakened a critical mass of conservatives to the fact that if they want to live and have their children have better prospects than south african whites they are going to have to go to war not politics.
    Trump will accomplish little legislatively, he probably wont be the last candidate thats outside the overton window. likely we will see the end of the GOP as the conservative party and increasingly strident right wing leaders throughout the west culminating in the ones that will lead us into war against the left

    Oh, so you fell for this ridiculous idea that Trump hasn't won unless he's won every little contest, and by the right margin?
    As I said before, Democrats are cheating, we will lose every election where we do not turn out more than they can fake, and if that's the case after all these elections decided by just enough to avoid a recount, then we deserve to lose. This going blind staring at patterns of margins is silly. I was a leftist and dutiful Democrat when George W Bush was massively unpopular and John Kerry was -- we were constantly assured -- "keeping his powder dry." They used that metaphor pretty much every day in that campaign.
    There's an obvious subtext in all the analyses of this small local election: Trump versus the UniParty, the UniParty against the People. Neither establishment party can demonstrate democratic legitimacy. All the energy was for Bernie and Trump, hostile outsiders who were promising to burn stuff down. Given that the Democrats have decided to have frequent attacks on the Constitution with excellent media coverage I am expecting them to do worse than expected overall. But if establishment Republicans, who spent their time in office back-stabbing their President and insulting their constituents, get sent home, I will neither miss their active hostility nor worry about their replacements.

  93. The Left has gone full-blown equality of outcome. To hell with understanding the reasons why certain groups are under-represented in “top jobs.” Given power, they will just appropriate these positions for their political constituents.

    They do it by worming their way into institutions of power like the Justice Department, where they demand corporations issue periodic “diversity” reports; if the numbers are not to their liking, they sue, or they sick their propaganda wing known as the media on them and shame them into submission. Corporations, unable to prove the negative (they’re not discriminating), are forced to comply and end up absorbing the cost of the unproductive and unqualified, which of course is passed along to the rest of us as higher prices.

    Jewish given names tend to be "stickier" than gentiles. Jewish tradition is to only use the names of dead relatives. Baby's more likely to be named after great-grandfather rattan than father or grandfather. So, the corpus of names tend to turn over slower on a generational basis.

    Plus Jews, like all upper-class whites, tend to have kids later in life. So the time in between generations is extended.

    I looked at a long history of US baby names some time ago. As I recall, the boy names seemed to rise and fall over 20-50 years and then usually cycle back to an old name returning to favor. By contrast, the girl name sine wave was much shorter, maybe 5-20 years. Since the 1990s or so there were a lot of new girl name coinages like "Madison". The current crop is usual for being mostly "classic" names, except for "Harper", which I assume is homage to our patron saint of the Numinous Negro and the WWC Devil.

    The lack of new coinages is kind of encouraging. Maybe among people who reproduce, they are reacting against the loony transgenderism. Or maybe we are finally outgrowing the insane "feminist" girls-need-to-be-more-like-boys fallacy.

    I actually prefer those newfangled names to Biblical names. Let Jews name their kids from the Old Testament, and Europeans name their kids after European stuff.

    Republican Debbie Lesko has won the special election in Arizona's 8th Congressional District, keeping the U.S. House seat in GOP control.

    The former state senator on Tuesday defeated Hiral Tipirneni, a former emergency room physician. Tipernini had hoped to replicate surprising Democratic wins in Pennsylvania, Alabama and other states in a year where opposition to President Donald Trump's policies have boosted the party's chances in Republican strongholds.

    Hiral Tipirneni, a former emergency room physician.

    Who owes it all to Jews in Cleveland, sounds like.

    Dr. Hiral Tipirneni has dedicated her life to serving her community, solving problems, and improving lives. She’s served the Phoenix area for more than 20 years as an emergency room physician, cancer research advocate and, most recently, on the board of directors of the Maricopa Health Foundation, which supports the county’s public health care delivery system.

    Hiral came to America from India with her family at the age of three. Her parents were seeking the American dream because they knew the United States was a place where, if you worked hard and lived by the rules of democracy, you could be successful no matter where you came from.

    Her family struggled at first, but Hiral’s father eventually secured a job in his field of structural engineering in Ohio, where she and her brother were raised in a working-class suburb of Cleveland. Hiral’s mother, a social worker, was the director of a downtown Cleveland senior center and initiated its Meals on Wheels program.

    Leaving aside the faddish Liam and Mason, the boys' names are very conservative, mostly Biblical plus one Germanic (William). The girls' names, in contrast, seem quite of the moment.

    The whole last-name first name trend is tailing off then, thankfully. I am really sick of that. Liam is just the last part of William, which is one of those things I was clueless about until someone pointed it out to me a few months back. Liam used to be just for skinny British guys who were in bands that were supposed to surpass the Beatles … that shit never pans out anyway.

    Contrary to what A.M. wrote below, I think that the girl’s naming cycles have an 80-year wavelength, not a short one. I’ve run into little ones named Sylvia now. Who’s the last Sylvia you’ve met who doesn’t walk with a cane? (Not to mention Sylvia’s mother* who must be gumming down her creamed corn, as we speak, at the early bird special.)

    That's pretty close to the mark, for New Jersey. Ms. Turner is embodied with an entitlement mentality that is all too typical--the subtle finesse of a Caterpillar bulldozer.

    It's plain as day that any attempt at influencing a cop (to show discretion) will come via good humor, good attitude, pleasantries, an expression of graciousness, and an appreciation of the cop's patience. The madam's gold shield, as an official of the PANYNJ, is only going to have an effect on a PA police officer--and even then, he's likely to respond that she should expect him to carry out his sworn duties, to do otherwise could be seen as misconduct. Officers today are trained for prevention of every sort of corruption and compromise.

    They take the job for a paycheck and a pension--why jeopardize that...

    I meant to say "the current crop is unusual", but maybe that's not really true anyhow.

    Other name lore: for some reason, in the early 1990s, the name "Hillary" completely fell off the baby name radar and never reappeared. Even Dems don't really like her, apparently.

    I did chance to meet a rare Hillary born mid-1990s once. And yes, her mother was a ravening liberal.

    Yup. Haven’t met too many Jews named just “John” and none named “James”.

    I’m related by marriage to a Jewish “James.” I think Ya’kov is the Hebrew equivalent.
     

    James is the (Vulgar/Later Latin) form of the Hebrew name Yaʻaqov (known as Jacob in its earlier Latin form).[1] The name James came into the English language from the Old French variation James[2] of the late Latin name Iacomus. This was a Vulgar/Later Latin (proto-Romance) variant of the earlier Latin form Iacobus, from the New Testament Greek Ἰάκωβος (Iákōbos), from Hebrew יעקב (Yaʻaqov) (Jacob). The development Iacobus > Iacomus is likely a result of nasalization of the o and assimilation of the following b (i.e., intermediate *Iacombus) followed by simplification of the cluster mb through loss of the b. Diminutives include Jamie, Jim, Jimmy, Jimmie, Jimbo, Jimothy, and others.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_(name)

    Fascinating and quite a coincidence. I one had a very wealthy Jewish couple as students in my Spanish class. Their son was named James. Dad wanted to know the Spanish translation for James. The most common is Jaime. (Jaimito being the diminutive form)

    Can descendants of Southerners who lost property as a result of the Civil War claim it?

    Well, that is a very good question. Robert E. Lee springs to mind, whose home was taken from him, having had the spiteful Yankees designate the land for use as a burial ground. Rather slimy.

    Story to be found in this article, kind of cleaned up because “Confederates”! So, first they steal the family’s land (later “paying” for it after its value had been flat out stolen through prior Federal action…), and a century and a half later, the SJWs tear down Confederate statues. I sense a pattern of vindictiveness here; time has given us some level of “truth” (not about the Yankees, of course), so where is the vaunted “reconciliation”? Nowhere to be seen. (The South African Boers have, of late, had this reality brought home to them in an epic bait and switch.)

    There is a lesson here, and one not far to seek. Know your enemy, and never forget that they remain your enemy forever, even when you have been given to believe that the past will remain the past. Not in their book, because they want their boot stamping on your face forever.

    Is it part of the Zeroth Amendment that the President has to explain to a federal judge why he wants to rescind an executive order? And do executive orders become law if the judge says so.

    Justice Kennedy was always going to be the guy to decide the issue.

    If Trump were a competent nationalist, his immigration executive orders would have been designed from the start to be as aggressive as Kennedy would likely permit, and a Kennedy charm and suck-up campaign would have been launched the moment Trump won the election. Are Trump’s people regularly talking with Kennedy about who’d make good circuit court judges? Hiring his former clerks for top DOJ and WH Counsel positions? Thinking of a good federal building to bear his name? And a milder version of this type of campaign is needed for Roberts who is possibly squishy on the issue.

    Frankly the companies releasing top grossing movies or companies that are in the Fortune 500, shouldn't be worrying about diversity. They should be worrying about results. If these executives were NOT producing or the directors were releasing box office bombs and these companies still kept the exact same white man as a CEO or director, that would be discrimination.

    Don't hate on people who are good at what they do. Are you really going to suggest that these companies should go out and hire Marissa Mayer or Elizabeth Holmes? There are many talented women out there, but did the NYT do the work to establish that the pool of talent is equal or greater in size? How many MBAs from the top-10 schools (Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, etc) have gone to women over the last 30 years? How many female executives with any title of VP or greater are there in the workforce versus how many men? What percentage of female leaders have left the workforce at least temporarily to raise children?

    These are the type of questions that should be asked as part of a serious journalistic investigation instead of this crass "Gotcha" journalism. Do better NYT.

These articles are about virtue signaling and bashing white man as some kind of evil parasite trying to be cruel to anyone who doesn’t look like them.

    It's not the same thing at all. Ashkenazic Jews, of which I am one, do not name their children after living relatives (Sephardic ones sometimes do.) But even dead relatives are not honored with the exacct name, but rather with something similar.

    The name given to the child is not always identical to that of the deceased; it is often changed to reflect the popular names of the time, but usually retains the sound or at least the first initial. For example, a grandmother named Elsie might be remembered through a granddaughter named Elizabeth or Kelsey. A grandfather named Leopold might be remembered through a grandson named Leonard or Lawrence.

    Leaving aside the faddish Liam and Mason, the boys’ names are very conservative, mostly Biblical plus one Germanic (William). The girls’ names, in contrast, seem quite of the moment.

    Agree and disagree.

    Generally the girl names have higher “fan out”. They have more names in the traditional inventory, but fewer–excepting Mary–that continuously had a very high hit rate.

    Agree that the male names are more solid and conservative. But what i see here is a decline in the traditional American heavyweight male names:
    John/Jack, James, Robert, William, Richard, Michael, Matthew, Steven, George, Charles, David, Daniel, maybe a few others. William, James and Michael are definitely on that heavyweight train. But most of these current male names are ones that were 2nd, or more like 3rd tier. (I knew not a single Noah growing up and have never met a baby-boomer Noah.)

    Agree that the female side is less traditional, more trendy–mostly 2nd and 3rd tier–but that’s more typical for the girls. There really weren’t many female names that were continuously widely used. But except for the stupid Harper and faddish Mia, the list looks like some very traditional names. Ok Ava would be 4th tier but for Ava Gardner. But a bunch of these names wouldn’t strike Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters as odd at all.

    Using the same initial letter is not quite the same thing as naming the grandsons after their grandfathers. But maybe I'm missing something, not being Jewish.

    It’s not the same thing at all. Ashkenazic Jews, of which I am one, do not name their children after living relatives (Sephardic ones sometimes do.) But even dead relatives are not honored with the exacct name, but rather with something similar.

    The name given to the child is not always identical to that of the deceased; it is often changed to reflect the popular names of the time, but usually retains the sound or at least the first initial. For example, a grandmother named Elsie might be remembered through a granddaughter named Elizabeth or Kelsey. A grandfather named Leopold might be remembered through a grandson named Leonard or Lawrence.

    Leaving aside the faddish Liam and Mason, the boys’ names are very conservative, mostly Biblical plus one Germanic (William). The girls’ names, in contrast, seem quite of the moment.
     
    Agree and disagree.

    Generally the girl names have higher "fan out". They have more names in the traditional inventory, but fewer--excepting Mary--that continuously had a very high hit rate.

    Agree that the male names are more solid and conservative. But what i see here is a decline in the traditional American heavyweight male names:
    John/Jack, James, Robert, William, Richard, Michael, Matthew, Steven, George, Charles, David, Daniel, maybe a few others. William, James and Michael are definitely on that heavyweight train. But most of these current male names are ones that were 2nd, or more like 3rd tier. (I knew not a single Noah growing up and have never met a baby-boomer Noah.)

    Agree that the female side is less traditional, more trendy--mostly 2nd and 3rd tier--but that's more typical for the girls. There really weren't many female names that were continuously widely used. But except for the stupid Harper and faddish Mia, the list looks like some very traditional names. Ok Ava would be 4th tier but for Ava Gardner. But a bunch of these names wouldn't strike Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters as odd at all.

    White Americans aren’t too bad at picking out names for their babies. There are various fads, but they follow reasonable patterns of stability with variation.

    The upside for Doctor Shapiro is being married to a woman who will drive her children to succeed at any cost. And in due course will make sure they marry only the best.

    He got some kind of private revenge, though, in naming his son. His wife got to name the daughter, and she has the name of a Disney character that seems to have been very popular 20 years ago with Jewish women. The friend gave his son the first name of his favorite baseball player and the middle name of his favorite alias, which he'd use when we were in Florida attending spring training games and frequenting the local adult entertainment joints at night.

    His "logic" was that the dancers all use aliases (Carl Hiassen riffed on this in a novel with a stripper protagonist; the club had two Moniques and were differentiated by Sr. and Jr.) so why shouldn't he!

    Mexican authorities stalled the caravan in a southern town and began handing out temporary visas that gave them legal status to travel to the border.

     

    They legally have the right to claim asylum in the US and aren't deterred by anything Trump or any government has done. Mexico is giving temporary visas that gave them legal status to travel to the border. The fact they can't be stopped is truly chilling.

    They don’t have a legal right to traverse Mexico, enter the USA and make an asylum claim here.

    Under international law (assuming Mexico has signed the various UN treaties on asylum) they have the right to make their asylum claim at the nearest “safe” country, which in this case is Mexico.

    Yup. Haven’t met too many Jews named just “John” and none named “James”.

    I’m related by marriage to a Jewish “James.” I think Ya’kov is the Hebrew equivalent.
     

    James is the (Vulgar/Later Latin) form of the Hebrew name Yaʻaqov (known as Jacob in its earlier Latin form).[1] The name James came into the English language from the Old French variation James[2] of the late Latin name Iacomus. This was a Vulgar/Later Latin (proto-Romance) variant of the earlier Latin form Iacobus, from the New Testament Greek Ἰάκωβος (Iákōbos), from Hebrew יעקב (Yaʻaqov) (Jacob). The development Iacobus > Iacomus is likely a result of nasalization of the o and assimilation of the following b (i.e., intermediate *Iacombus) followed by simplification of the cluster mb through loss of the b. Diminutives include Jamie, Jim, Jimmy, Jimmie, Jimbo, Jimothy, and others.

    Sir Henry Irving (6 February 1838 – 13 October 1905), born John Henry Brodribb,
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Irving

    Though Brodribb did not accept the invitation from Phelps, by 1856 he had moved to Sunderland, changed his name to Henry Irving, and looked to begin his professional career. He chose the name "Irving" from his beloved American writer Washington Irving, and kept his original middle name, Henry.

    Irving also seems to have suffered a childhood accident which left him with a dragging leg. To conquer the handicaps of gait and diction well enough to become recognised as the greatest actor of the age shows a transcendental strength of purpose, but the future Elevator of the Stage had to overcome a further impediment to his ambitions: Methodism. To assuage the family shame at his
    choice of career John Brodribb chose the stage name of Henry Irving, Henry having been added to John at his christening and Irving perhaps after Washington Irving, an author he admired, or perhaps Edward Irving, a preacher who had himself briefly trodden the boards.

    Just go with the truth that World War II was a terrible, terrible time for Poland and so many other countries, peoples - there were hundreds maybe thousands of slave labor camps the Gulag in the Soviet Union as well as in Poland - people die in slave labor camps just as the entire Polish officer corp was slaughtered by the Soviets in the Katyn Forrest.

    No one has tried to make Soviet Gulag, Slave labor camps as Disney Lands of Death and Humiliation - so why do so in Poland?

    Just move on and promote a new Poland as a positive place populated mostly by Polish people - low crime, little political anarchy - a good place to live and visit. If Jewish people want to live in Poland or visit they can do so provide they behave themselves and don't try to take over everything like they do/did here in the USA.

    choice of career John Brodribb chose the stage name of Henry Irving, Henry having been added to John at his christening and Irving perhaps after Washington Irving, an author he admired, or perhaps Edward Irving, a preacher who had himself briefly trodden the boards.

    Yup. Haven’t met too many Jews named just “John” and none named “James”.
     
    I'm related by marriage to a Jewish "James." I think Ya'kov is the Hebrew equivalent.

    Wouldn’t Ya’kov be the equivalent of Jacob? Also crypsis usually involves common Anglo names like John Brown or James Green. The plainer the name, the more the situation calls for scrutiny.

    Belatedly realizing the magnitude of Jewish privilege has created political dilemmas for me that I still don't know how to resolve. That one small ethno-religious group has such enormous power in the West, and that this fact is nonetheless missing from our collective public self-understanding - that's a prime example of "false consciousness". Jews function like an invisible ruling class who have their internal disagreements, but who would be as one in opposing any attempt to make Jewish power per se, a theme of public discussion.

    So what then? I have no desire to be a Jew or live like a Jew, but apparently I cannot aspire to anything significant in life without forming some opinion of, and some relationship to, Jewishness, because money, media, academy, politics, diplomacy, and who knows what else, all seem to be influenced by powerful Jewish cabals. That's the shocking reality of the post-Christian West; Christianity is in decline, but the older religious identity, Judaism, thrives among the upper classes.

    How can this possibly end well?

    Trump won when he managed to draw the Media into such a wall bias at the mere suggestion that the law and peoples will be followed all doubt was removed that the media is anything other than a propaganda machine- fake news was instantly turned back on them and is now a synonym for big media, he light as well have passed a law that from now on all media outlets must affix the title Ministry of Truth under their logo.
    He proceeded to finally shatter the hope and delusion of the conservative voters forever when he drew GOP cucks into the open during the primary, finally demonstrating for conservatives that the GOP is a controlled cuck shill party and that politics is hopeless, democracy dead, and everything about race. That thye would rather a Clinton or a communist won than the platform they had been fraudulently running on for decades actually got passed.

    When he proved to us all we were not the only ones and pulled off a historic upset changing the left right boundaries forever,not only on the electoral map but also on the political alignment of issues map, he caught the deep state off guard and managed to draw the deep state and civil service into open rebellion of an elected president and caught them in an encyclopedia of criminal conspiracies which everyone know they will not serve a day in prison forever exposing that alex jones and co are more right than crazy, that we dont live in a democracy, that we dont live under a rule of law that their is such a thing as a deep state that our elected officials take it as a given that not obeying them can get you killed or destroyed, that they are so above the law they can wage open war on a popular president, that the media civil service NGOs academia EU judiciary military organized religion etc are all in support of the deep state and could care less about rule of law and will of the people.

    He has since trolled the law enforcement and the judiciary into open partisanship and forever shattered the fairytale that we have an independent judiciary that investigates and judges based on rule of law.

    He has also several times worked to legitimize points of view on a national and international scale not heard in polite company in 100 years. That race is real and it matters. That the holocaust is not the national religion, that nationalism throughout the world is a good thing, that white people have a right to homelands too. That the far right is at the very least no worse than the mainstream left.That authority ought to be questioned because they are lying most of the time.That globalism is not good for the whites.That tech is not your friend. That third world immigration is an invasion orchestrated to destroy the west by certain people who can be pointed to, and who have no alternative legitimate explanation for their scheme other than destruction of us.That china is our enemy, Islam is our enemy, Israel is not our ally in any lasting sense, that the EU is not our partner, That christianity is leftist most of the time.

    In short he has awakened a critical mass of conservatives to the fact that if they want to live and have their children have better prospects than south african whites they are going to have to go to war not politics.
    Trump will accomplish little legislatively, he probably wont be the last candidate thats outside the overton window. likely we will see the end of the GOP as the conservative party and increasingly strident right wing leaders throughout the west culminating in the ones that will lead us into war against the left

    I think Apu's caste should be identified and only a South Asian Hindu of the correct caste should be selected so as to eliminate as much caste privilege intersectionality as possible.

    Fun fact: Azaria went to the same HS as Pres. Trump.

    Think of that poor chump she married, Doctor Shapiro. He has to deal with this every day. Every. Single. Day. This is the downside to being a Jewish dude. Daily emasculation. You have to turn over your testicles for safekeeping.

    The upside for Doctor Shapiro is being married to a woman who will drive her children to succeed at any cost. And in due course will make sure they marry only the best.

    Twenty years ago, it took my buddy Ellen the better part of a year to pry a nice Jewish boy away from his mama (who also ruled the roost like this). Unsurprisingly, Ellen now wears the pants in her family, too.

    Six of one, half-dozen of the other.

    NB: the Port Authority was created by an interstate compact between New York and New Jersey. It has incredible bureaucratic power that both states have to submit to. Kushner's dad was angling to become boss of the Port Authority before he was convicted.

    One of my Jewish friends is the same. He’s under the thumb of his turned-lesbian mother and her black partner, his sister, for whom he works, and his daughter. The most henpecked guy I know.

    He got some kind of private revenge, though, in naming his son. His wife got to name the daughter, and she has the name of a Disney character that seems to have been very popular 20 years ago with Jewish women. The friend gave his son the first name of his favorite baseball player and the middle name of his favorite alias, which he’d use when we were in Florida attending spring training games and frequenting the local adult entertainment joints at night.

    His “logic” was that the dancers all use aliases (Carl Hiassen riffed on this in a novel with a stripper protagonist; the club had two Moniques and were differentiated by Sr. and Jr.) so why shouldn’t he!

    It's plain as day that any attempt at influencing a cop (to show discretion) will come via good humor, good attitude, pleasantries, an expression of graciousness, and an appreciation of the cop's patience. The madam's gold shield, as an official of the PANYNJ, is only going to have an effect on a PA police officer--and even then, he's likely to respond that she should expect him to carry out his sworn duties, to do otherwise could be seen as misconduct. Officers today are trained for prevention of every sort of corruption and compromise.

    They take the job for a paycheck and a pension--why jeopardize that...

    This really is worrying, it has the potential to result in violence because historically the Jewish community has no capacity for objectivity or backing down. I like this idea that an odious debt can survive the Jubilee cycle and the most destructive total war in history. After they shake down Poland will they shake down Montenegro?

    The Poles, Hungarians and even the Russians have shown encouraging signs of standing up to the Chosen shakedowns, insults and intrigues.

    Victor Orbin made it personal and ran against the enemy in the form of one bad guy George Soros. The Jewish community tries to deny that Soros is Jewish and they sight just some comments against Israel.

    Vladimir Putin effectively removed Jewish Oligarchs from running Russia. There are still very, very many extremely wealthy Jewish oligarchs in Russia but they are held in check and not allowed to do American style anti Russian cult marxism. The ones that do try this like Yukos Oil oligarch get arrested, put in public cages and sentenced to hard labor in Siberia.

    Move on.

    Offer the “Work Shall Set you Free” gate to Israel if they want it, if they don’t, turn it in to scrap.

    Just go with the truth that World War II was a terrible, terrible time for Poland and so many other countries, peoples – there were hundreds maybe thousands of slave labor camps the Gulag in the Soviet Union as well as in Poland – people die in slave labor camps just as the entire Polish officer corp was slaughtered by the Soviets in the Katyn Forrest.

    No one has tried to make Soviet Gulag, Slave labor camps as Disney Lands of Death and Humiliation – so why do so in Poland?

    Just move on and promote a new Poland as a positive place populated mostly by Polish people – low crime, little political anarchy – a good place to live and visit. If Jewish people want to live in Poland or visit they can do so provide they behave themselves and don’t try to take over everything like they do/did here in the USA.

    It's not the same thing at all. Ashkenazic Jews, of which I am one, do not name their children after living relatives (Sephardic ones sometimes do.) But even dead relatives are not honored with the exacct name, but rather with something similar.

    The name given to the child is not always identical to that of the deceased; it is often changed to reflect the popular names of the time, but usually retains the sound or at least the first initial. For example, a grandmother named Elsie might be remembered through a granddaughter named Elizabeth or Kelsey. A grandfather named Leopold might be remembered through a grandson named Leonard or Lawrence.

    In the past, though, it was expected that the names of the first two children of each sex were to honor the grandparents of their sex. Should one of those early children die, the next child of that sex would "inherit" the name. "Thou shalt honor thy mother and thy father."

    It would be interesting to research whether this happened more frequently with children named for grandparents than for children named for others, or for other reasons. (In colonial times, names like "Melanchthon" and "Experience" were seen rather often.)

  221. The Top Jobs Where Women Are Outnumbered by Men Named John

    Eight is the loneliest number since the number two…

    There are eight women on the Vietnam Wall. There are eight men named Whitney. There are nine named Wade, and twelve named Wagner.

    There are so many Walkers that the Juniors alone number nine. (That doesn’t include the one “II”.)

    Names are added every year on Mother’s Day. In 2017, there were– guess what– eight deaths added. Three names are new, and five were changed from a cross (missing in action) to a diamond (confirmed dead).

    Eight is likely the number in the women’s movement in America who are bothered by this particular discrepancy. Remember, it was the Equal Rights Amendment.

    This video will be profoundly disturbing to Jews for two reasons. One, because it shows that working-class white men have more integrity than high-ranking Jewish women. Two, because it shows that white, working-class men will not allow themselves to be pushed around by bossy Jewish moms. This is an axe to the very roots of the special Jewish boy/Mother relationship in which the mother rules with absolute authority. "How dare some lowly, non-Phd-candidate-at-MIT-Gentile question my Mom?"

    She finds the officer's behavior "very disappointing" because it "ruins" her family's Passover. Well so what? Tough beans. Why is it that you don't you find your law-breaking kid's behavior disappointing?

    Unfortunately, the Jewish takeaway from this encounter will be that they need to insinuate themselves into dominant positions in local police heirarchies across America, the better to enjoy their holidays without the bother of corruption-free Law and Order.

    Two, because it shows that white, working-class men will not allow themselves to be pushed around by bossy Jewish moms.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/25/opinion/california-democrats-trump-republicans.html

    So the same trends that have made California so uniformly liberal have also encouraged Trumpism elsewhere — and not only elsewhere, since as Jason Willick and James Hitchcock pointed out in 2016 in The American Interest, Trumpism-the-ideology is very much a made-in-California affair. Not many members of the right-wing intelligentsia backed Trump, but the writers and thinkers who did — from mainstream conservatives to the alt-right fringe — were heavily Californian: the Claremont Institute’s West Coast Straussians, Michael “Flight 93 Election” Anton, Mickey Kaus, Victor Davis Hanson, Ron Unz, Steve Sailer, Scott Adams, Curtis “Mencius Moldbug” Yarvin … and of course the one and only Peter Thiel.

    The Left has gone full-blown equality of outcome. To hell with understanding the reasons why certain groups are under-represented in "top jobs." Given power, they will just appropriate these positions for their political constituents.

    They do it by worming their way into institutions of power like the Justice Department, where they demand corporations issue periodic "diversity" reports; if the numbers are not to their liking, they sue, or they sick their propaganda wing known as the media on them and shame them into submission. Corporations, unable to prove the negative (they're not discriminating), are forced to comply and end up absorbing the cost of the unproductive and unqualified, which of course is passed along to the rest of us as higher prices.

    If this continues, in the long run the United States will be buried economically by Asian countries that don't buy into the SJW narrative. I'm close to retirement, so I will be fine, but I worry about my two white sons and their future job prospects. My recommendation to them is to start taking courses in Mandarin.

    We’ll be buried economically by Asians here, too.
