From the New York Times:

While Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said earlier on Monday that Mr. Obama did not plan to meet with Ahmed, the president did speak briefly with the boy and gave him a hug. Ahmed made his way to the front of the crowd after Mr. Obama delivered a speech.

As for the clock, Ahmed told The Dallas Morning News that he had been too busy traveling to get it and bring it with him.

Or maybe the Secret Service told him they’d throw his bomb-shaped disassembled clock in the Potomac, like the police chief of St. Michaels, MD told me he was going to have the bomb squad robot heave my suspicioualy heavy package into Chesapeake Bay unless I could prove they were just my new business cards and not an IRA plastic explosive device that would finally finish off Mrs. Thatcher.

Clock Boy shows my lack of money-making initiative. I could have transformed myself into Card Guy and toured the world being hugged by world leaders to make up for my victimization. What was I thinking when I laughed the incident off?

So, what’s next for Clock Boy? He’s gotten his Presidential hug, but drew blanks on the Nobels Prizes and Genius Grants. He appears to have more or less dropped out of school.

I’d say he should apply for membership in the Kardashian family and let Kris Jenner take over managing his career. There was almost an opening this week in the K family, but it looks like Khloe Kardashian’s husband, former NBA disappointment Lamar Odom, will pull through from his Viagra, cocaine, and tranny overdose at the Love Ranch. But I think Clock Boy has gotten about as far as he can under his father’s amateur management and would need a real pro like Kris Jenner to take him to the next level of never having to go back to school or work or anything ever again.

    Men don’t seem to fare too well under Kris Jenner. Even though they don’t really work just about all of the men in the Kardashian/Jenner family are a mess: Lamar Odom is in very bad shape, Scott Disick is in rehab, last I heard Rob Kardashian was very overweight, and Bruce Jenner is no longer a man, or something like that.

    I do not watch TV and live in England, thousands of miles away from the U.S., but even I have heard of these Kardashians, which at one time, before I knew better, I assumed were a race of aliens in Star Trek. The Daily Mail is my main source of intelligence on this topic, but even that esteemed organ has yet failed to explain to me what, exactly, the Kardashians do, have achieved, or represent; nor do I know of any other reason why these grotesques should be as famous as they are, and would be very pleased to hear an explanation from anyone who can be bothered to supply one. Thanks in advance!

    The main humiliation here was some dumbass principal overreacting to Ahmed's none-too-impressive electronics project. This is common--partly because the USA has its share of dumbasses in positions of authority, partly because of dumb school policies like zero tolerance, partly because smartass high school kids like pushing boundaries and seeking attention--but mainly because it's a big country.

    The whole story should never have been national news, because people with more authority than sense are a dime a dozen in the U.S. Assuming sanity would ultimately have prevailed among the local officials and they wouldn't have actually charged the kid with a crime, Ahmed probably isn't benefitting from the publicity. His father may be, but he's not--he's been pulled out of school and paraded around in the media.
    , @ABN
    Yes, the *only* possible interpretation of the rapturous reception given by liberals to this ridiculous hoax is that it's all an exercise to "rub our noses in diversity" (to borrow a phrase). The more transparent the ploy, the better. The more shamelessly self-promoting Clock Dad is, the better. The more intellectually mediocre Clock Boy is, the better.

    The subtext of the Narrative is hardly a subtext anymore. It's pretty much straight-up "F*** you, Middle America." The Narrative is an increasingly absurd status-signaling competition among fools and traitors.

    Of course, it's only effective as long as we accept their signaling currency as legal tender for all statuses, social and moral. I don't, anymore, and, incredibly, it seems like the current GOP frontrunner doesn't either. I look forward to the day when Uncle Donald transforms ostentatious treason from a token of moral superiority back to the contemptible pathology it is. And I hope he'll deport the whole Clock Clan while he's at it.

    It all goes back to the O.J. Simpson trial. Rob Kardashian (the sluts' father) was O.J.'s friend and lawyer.

    The sluts' mother dumped Kardashian for Bruce/Caitlin Jenner in 1991, three years before the O.J. BS-fest began. Rob died in 2003.

    To put it in the simplest terms (and to borrow a line from the past), they are well-known for being well-known or, if you prefer, famous for being famous. I seem to recall the line being applied to Zsa Zsa Garbor, a predecessor of the Kardashians, and, amusingly, one of several likewise "famous" sisters, now largely forgotten.

    There is as much distraction as you want, but there's also very high quality news and analysis if you want to find it. The result is that the dumb and uninterested know ever more about the kardashians and the celebrity trial of the month, and the smart and interested know ever more about the clusterfuck in Syria or the refugee crisis in Europe.

    Turns out, most people prefer pictures of Kim Kardashian's ass to a ten page article on how ISIS funds its operations. Go figure.

    “Professor Robert Plomin talks to Jim Al-Khalili about what makes some people smarter than others and why he’s fed up with the genetics of intelligence being ignored. Born and raised in Chicago, Robert sat countless intelligence tests at his inner city Catholic school. College was an attractive option mainly because it seemed to pay well. Now he’s one of the most cited psychologists in the world. He specialized in behavioural genetics in the mid seventies when the focus in mainstream psychology was very much on our nurture rather than our nature, and genetics was virtually taboo. But he persisted, conducting several large adoption studies and later twin studies. In 1995 he launched the biggest longitudinal twin study in the UK, the TED study of ten thousand pairs of twins which continues to this day. In this study and in his other work, he’s shown consistently that genetic influences on intelligence are highly significant, much more so than what school you go to, your teachers or home environment. If only the genetic differences between children were fully acknowledged, he believes education could be transformed and parents might stop giving themselves such a hard time. “

    The younger Kardashians are like Cher– half-Armenian, half-hillbilly/redneck. Armenians are themselves displaced hillbillies. Why this particular mix leads to world-champion level self-promotion is anyone’s guess. Yelling from mountain top to mountain top? (Cf Schwarzenegger, another high-altitude self-promoter.)

    At least America’s proles are armed. Whatever the practical consequences of that, this promotes a healthy distrust of the authorities, who are not in a position to be honest even if they wanted to.

    Steve isn’t name dropping here. The relevance of his Thatcher story to Clockboy could hardly be stronger or more obvious. It’s a clear example of who/whom.

  46. This post is dedicated to Steve’s former life as a Fenian terrorist.

    I was once accused of of robbing a convenience store with a knife (which, of course, I didn’t do.) But the store that I owned was right across the street from the store that had been robbed, so I can understand how that would make me an obvious suspect. To be fair, I was under suspicion for only about three minutes.

  47. When I was a young lad in the 6os, I made a clock. I followed the instructions from a magazine. It was from Popular Science or some magazine like that. I went to three places to get the materials. When I assembled it, the electric motor turned a needle that moved on a clock face. I am not sure how accurate this clock was. I was only ten years old at the time, yet I assembled a clock that was more complicated than anything bomb boy has ever done. The kicker is that I never contemplated a career in engineering or science because I was not that good at it. More was expected from students in those days. Bomb boy would have never lasted in any science class I had in those days.

    Like Soviet media agitprop during the worst days of the USSR the not so subtle subtext of these Clockmed stories is the ritual humiliation of the average citizen and demonstration of the Federal Media's dominance by presenting an unrelenting stream of obvious untruths that go largely unchallenged.

    “Suck it flyover scum... Clockmed invented a clock because we said so”.

    The Soviets considered their media a joke. We still have true believers.

    The main humiliation here was some dumbass principal overreacting to Ahmed’s none-too-impressive electronics project. This is common–partly because the USA has its share of dumbasses in positions of authority, partly because of dumb school policies like zero tolerance, partly because smartass high school kids like pushing boundaries and seeking attention–but mainly because it’s a big country.

    The whole story should never have been national news, because people with more authority than sense are a dime a dozen in the U.S. Assuming sanity would ultimately have prevailed among the local officials and they wouldn’t have actually charged the kid with a crime, Ahmed probably isn’t benefitting from the publicity. His father may be, but he’s not–he’s been pulled out of school and paraded around in the media.

    Heartiste is a bit different than the typical PUA. He readily says that the only reason his shtick works is that society is sick and broken. He frequently talks about looking forward to the current society ending and things going back to a more traditional form. He basically justifies what he does by suggesting that he's just making the best of a bad situation. Which is probably just post hoc rationalization, but it's not like he doesn't notice there's something wrong with it.

    I'm not a huge follower, but it seems to me that this is a fairly recent development from him, so we might actually see him giving it up and turning over a new leaf.
    , @Intelligent Dasein
    The PUA universe is not based in reality, nor is it really about picking up women. It can't be, because their techniques do not work ( I suppose nobody's noticed that little problem). It's really something more in the nature of a literary genre and polemical style which tends to flow off the fingertips easily once the knack for it has been acquired. It can be applied to vast array of situations, and it handily fills up a comment box, so it tends to proliferate.

    None of these pick up artists are really pick up artists; they are simply polemicists who have learned a new way of speaking, and they've managed to convince themselves and their followers that what they have to say is important. It's rather like Richard Dawkins and his Darwinism. Entirely incorrect, but it makes good hack literature.

    I even helped design cellular telephony equipment.

    I built that. Obama and Clockmed sure didn't.

    The YouTube world is full of liberals AND conservatives who have gotten their 15 minutes of fame. Did you ever get angry about Joe the Plumber’s popularity? Or the popularity of the dozens of 15-minute conservatives who become instant celebrities over one clever quip? Probably not, because they are mostly white conservatives. Get over yourself you big baby.

Has Steve ever fixated on Bristol Palin, who also has had no contribution to society and received not 15 minutes but 15 years worth of fame? Is it because Steve has to “support the tribe” no matter what?

    This is one of those things where the average person will sit back and say “that’s nice” and move on with their productive lifes. but not Steve and the minions, who wallow in a jealous rage and refuse to let it go.

    As ABN said, this isn't about the boy, it is about the media's anti-white bias. The nationwide media attention (i.e. not just Steve) for this trivial incident was solely about promoting a false and slanderous narrative of whites persecuting nonwhites. One in a long pattern of examples.

    Yes, the *only* possible interpretation of the rapturous reception given by liberals to this ridiculous hoax is that it’s all an exercise to “rub our noses in diversity” (to borrow a phrase). The more transparent the ploy, the better. The more shamelessly self-promoting Clock Dad is, the better. The more intellectually mediocre Clock Boy is, the better.

    The subtext of the Narrative is hardly a subtext anymore. It’s pretty much straight-up “F*** you, Middle America.” The Narrative is an increasingly absurd status-signaling competition among fools and traitors.

    Of course, it’s only effective as long as we accept their signaling currency as legal tender for all statuses, social and moral. I don’t, anymore, and, incredibly, it seems like the current GOP frontrunner doesn’t either. I look forward to the day when Uncle Donald transforms ostentatious treason from a token of moral superiority back to the contemptible pathology it is. And I hope he’ll deport the whole Clock Clan while he’s at it.

    Hollywood losers may live in mansions, but their lives, and more so the lives of their poor children, often are a total implosion. If that makes momma appreciate her humble husband and children all the more, I’m all for it. As long as we don’t spend anything on it.

    That was smart. Someone might have smirked on camera. So I don’t think safety concerns had anything to do with it.

    Anyone who knows anything about electronics sees immediately that Ahmed’s project was a total sham. So the less exposure it gets, the better for the legend of Ahmed.

    But I think Clock Boy has gotten about as far as he can under his father’s amateur management and would need a real pro like Kris Jenner to take him to the next level of never having to go back to school or work or anything ever again.
     
    Men don't seem to fare too well under Kris Jenner. Even though they don't really work just about all of the men in the Kardashian/Jenner family are a mess: Lamar Odom is in very bad shape, Scott Disick is in rehab, last I heard Rob Kardashian was very overweight, and Bruce Jenner is no longer a man, or something like that.

    Selection bias. Strippers’ boyfriends are messed up before they become strippers’ boyfriends.

The Daily Mail is my main source of intelligence on this topic, but even that esteemed organ has yet failed to explain to me what, exactly, the Kardashians do, have achieved, or represent; nor do I know of any other reason why these grotesques should be as famous as they are, and would be very pleased to hear an explanation from anyone who can be bothered to supply one. Thanks in advance!

    Heartiste is a bit different than the typical PUA. He readily says that the only reason his shtick works is that society is sick and broken. He frequently talks about looking forward to the current society ending and things going back to a more traditional form. He basically justifies what he does by suggesting that he’s just making the best of a bad situation. Which is probably just post hoc rationalization, but it’s not like he doesn’t notice there’s something wrong with it.

    The reason this manifestation of the Narrative is interesting to Steve–and vexing to the rest of us–is that it displays quite a lot about the worldview of the hostile politicians, journalists, intellectuals, etc. who rule us.

  99. Re clockboy’s meeting with Omar al-Bashir.

    http://washington.cbslocal.com/2015/10/20/ahmed-mohamed-sudan-president/

    Omar al-Bashir wikipedia:

    On 14 July 2008, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno Ocampo, alleged that al-Bashir bore individual criminal responsibility for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes committed since 2003 in Darfur. The prosecutor accused al-Bashir of having “masterminded and implemented” a plan to destroy the three main ethnic groups—Fur, Masalit, and Zaghawa—with a campaign of murder, rape, and deportation. The arrest warrant is supported by NATO, the Genocide Intervention Network, and Amnesty International.

    During his reign, wikipedia Slavery in Sudan:

    Human Rights Watch and others have described the contemporary form of slavery in Sudan as mainly the work of the armed, government-backed militia of the Baggara tribes who raid civilians — primarily of the Dinka ethnic group from the southern region of Bahr El Ghazal. The Baggara captured children and women who were taken to western Sudan and elsewhere. They were “forced to work for free in homes and in fields, punished when they refuse, and abused physically and sometimes sexually”. The government of Sudan “arm[ed] and sanction[ed] the practice of slavery by this tribal militia”, known as muraheleen, as a low cost way of weakening its enemy in the Second Sudanese Civil War, the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), which was thought to have a base of support among the Dinka tribe of southern Sudan.

    Estimates of abductions during the war range from 14,000 to 200,000.

    Whites should feel guilty because Whites held slaves in the past. Sudanese shouldn’t feel guilty because Sudanese hold slaves today.

    A White boy who flies the confederate flag is despicable because the flag is associated with slavery. A brown boy who is pleased to meet a slavery sanctioning genocidal tyrant gets to meet the president.

    There is something especially pathetic about a middle-aged man fixating on what a 14-year old boy is up to. Even more pathetic the middle-aged man acting as if said 14 year-old is some sort of adversary of his.
     
    He is an adversary. He (like his dad) deliberately provokes Whites in order to produce a media backlash (frontlash?) against Whites.

    Has Steve ever fixated on Bristol Palin, who also has had no contribution to society and received not 15 minutes but 15 years worth of fame?
     
    You obviously can't follow the plot.

    Nor count. No one outside of Wasilla had heard of Bristol before 2008.

    From Natfni’s post: “Am I just Guilty of Noticing?”

    I plead guilty to noticing that Natfni has only posted once on unz.com, the comment you responded to. Might be better to check the posting history before responding. How do you spell “troll”?

    Heartiste is a bit different than the typical PUA. He readily says that the only reason his shtick works is that society is sick and broken. He frequently talks about looking forward to the current society ending and things going back to a more traditional form. He basically justifies what he does by suggesting that he's just making the best of a bad situation. Which is probably just post hoc rationalization, but it's not like he doesn't notice there's something wrong with it.

    I'm not a huge follower, but it seems to me that this is a fairly recent development from him, so we might actually see him giving it up and turning over a new leaf.

    Heartiste also calls out the feminist harridans for the damage they have done to society. Game is a response to the entitlement mentality of modern women.

  106. Most scientists now agree that there isn’t a sinngle triggger for bipolar dysfunction; moderately, many elemennts act collectively to provide the sickness.

    Can you produce anything to show that this kid deliberately provokes whites?

    Produce anything to show his dad deliberately provoked whites? The only thing we know about his dad is that he defended the Koran against some Christan pastor. I suppose not shutting up and taking it might be considered an act of provocation to you.

    As ABN said, this isn't about the boy, it is about the media's anti-white bias. The nationwide media attention (i.e. not just Steve) for this trivial incident was solely about promoting a false and slanderous narrative of whites persecuting nonwhites. One in a long pattern of examples.

    You’re right Drake, only things the knockout game and polar bear hunting exist. Everything that happens to a minority is trivial.

  109. Nice cover for blowing up the Middle East.

    I do not watch TV and live in England, thousands of miles away from the U.S., but even I have heard of these Kardashians, which at one time, before I knew better, I assumed were a race of aliens in Star Trek. The Daily Mail is my main source of intelligence on this topic, but even that esteemed organ has yet failed to explain to me what, exactly, the Kardashians do, have achieved, or represent; nor do I know of any other reason why these grotesques should be as famous as they are, and would be very pleased to hear an explanation from anyone who can be bothered to supply one. Thanks in advance!

    P.S. If asked to nominate the most curious of these life forms, I would choose the steatopygous Kim, who seems perennially pregnant and is espoused to the painfully shy and modest Mr West, though I believe I am not familiar with every specimen in the tribe.

    “nor do I know of any other reason why these grotesques should be as famous as they are, and would be very pleased to hear an explanation from anyone who can be bothered to supply one. Thanks in advance!”

    To put it in the simplest terms (and to borrow a line from the past), they are well-known for being well-known or, if you prefer, famous for being famous. I seem to recall the line being applied to Zsa Zsa Garbor, a predecessor of the Kardashians, and, amusingly, one of several likewise “famous” sisters, now largely forgotten.

    But the Gabors were very amusing comic actresses in their prime, which is how they first got invited on talk shows.

    It seems to be mostly a union of convenience, because the right is the only part of the culture where people are still permitted to talk frankly about differences between the sexes, which is integral to the PUA worldview.

    In a saner world, the PUAs would probably be on the left, but we don't live in that world.

    I like this analysis. PUAs could be considered to combine the un-PC of the right with the utter degeneracy of the left.
