The fourth ranking House Democrat Joe Crowley lost badly in his primary to a 28 year old Puerto Rican socialist lady who wants open borders and free handouts, which sound like quite a combination. (After all, open borders and generous welfare have worked so many wonders for Puerto Rico that practically nobody lives there anymore. So let’s extend the PR Plan to the 50 states. But do we Americans have somewhere else to go the way Puerto Ricans have Orlando? I should check into that …)

The one little minor teeny weeny tiny little flaw in the Democrats’ plan to use minorities to turn America blue is that before minorities come to comprise a majority of America they will first come to comprise a majority of the Democratic Party. That means that a whole lot of white Democrats will be out of jobs.

For much of the political class politics is just about where you can find work, and which party gives you the best shot at climbing the ladder into elective office. Setting aside my personal political beliefs and looking at it just from a rational perspective, if I were a few years younger and just graduating from college right now and wanted to aim for elective office there is no way in hell, as a straight white man, I would want to attach myself to the Democratic Party.

I know that securing the border all seems pretty hopeless right now, with 100% of Democratic politicians in favor of erasing our borders. But a few more victories by wise young Latinas over tired old white guys like Crowley and perhaps a few Democrats will start to come around. After all, they’re doing their best to pander to the Hispanic vote and it ain’t doing them a who lot of good. Crowley’s NumbersUSA [immigration security] grade is an F-.

    This was another prescient theme in Bonfire of the Vanities: the young white assistant district attorneys realizing that blacks and Hispanics would take over the top elected spots before they climbed the greasy pole.

    If you’re a young white Dem in most parts of NYC, switching to the GOP won’t help much though because they don’t have a shot st winning the general. You could move, I guess, but being a carpetbagger has its own challenges.

    Total bs …As in no matter what Trump does, none will be leaving (fleeing) the US to go back to their Muslim and 3rd world homelands. Unfortunately for us.

    I first saw this in 1995 or so when Bill Clinton was trying to re-install Jean-Bertrand Aristide in Haiti. It was on the TV news and in the local fish wraps, all these Haitians going on about how they could not wait to move back to Haiti when Aristide was back in power. A complete lie and later on I saw some excuses, such as my children are in school here, have friends here, I cannot haul them back to Haiti. I knew the immigrants legal/illegal were lying, even back then 20+ years ago.

  4. Let me repeat a point that I made earlier.

    Crowley won three terms (6 years) from his district. If his constituents were that fanatically anti-white, how did he get elected to begin with?

    It appears that Crowley skipped both primary debates. See below.

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/6/26/17506970/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-joe-crowley-primary-new-york

    She had some help from a major Crowley misstep — he sent a surrogate to a primary debate, which led to a scathing editorial from the New York Times. “This is the second primary debate in which Mr. Crowley was a no-show. A spokeswoman for Mr. Crowley said he had scheduling conflicts that wouldn’t allow him to attend the two debates, inevitably leaving voters to wonder — what are we, chopped liver?” the editorial read.

    His children didn’t go to school in the district. According to the paper, even he didn’t actually live in his own district (he disputes this).

    He was a politically moderate Democrat with strong ties to the Wall Street finance and the real estate industries. She was a hard-left community organizer. Which individual is likely more in touch with the district’s constituents?

  7. So it appears that Crowley was elected by an extremely diverse constituency.

    However, Crowley became lazy, out of touch, a bit corrupt, and took his constituents for granted.

    Crowley then blamed anti-white animus when the problem was mostly his apathy and lethargy.

    Then they threw him out and brought in a socialist.

    If this were really true, then I’d think things were finally turning around on immigration.

    But I’ll believe it when they stop coming. When Central Americans make asylum requests to Mexico rather than travel hundreds of miles within Mexico to the U.S. border (or just stay home). When illegals in the interior start to return to their own countries in numbers.

    Wilkey is crediting the hard left – and much more importantly, The Economist- with something they singularly don’t possess, namely intelligence.

    Yes, they have virtue signalling and the tendency to gratuitously display their faith credentials aplenty, ( cf flagliasts in many religions, and the good ol’ extant practice of ‘Hobson-Jobson’), but apart from sheer fanaticism- in the strictest sense of the term – there’s nothing there.

    Sorry to labor the point, but Left/Economist is of a religious cult in nature – empirical common sense – to the extent that it mitigates against one’s own personal interests – plays absolutely no part whatsoever in their creed.

    “Medicare For All” is an idea that’s been implemented in most of the first world.

    “Housing as a Human Right” is what you might expect from someone living in one of the country’s most expensive housing markets.

    The “Federal Jobs Guarantee” is an idea that’ll likely become more popular, as automation kills off a huge percentage of jobs.

  15. @JohnnyWalker123

    By the way, there are many types of “handouts” available from the govt.

    For example, Dick Cheney was previously CEO of Haliburton. He then became Vice-President. As VP, he was a strong supporter of the Iraq War, due to the presence of “weapons of mass destruction.”

    After the end of the Iraq War, Haliburton got a huge no-bid contract for the “rebuilding” of Iraq. Over the course of the next decade, they got $39.5 billion in contracts. It appears that well over 40% of this sum was due to waste or outright fraud.

    Oddly enough, nobody was ever prosecuted for any of this.

    https://www.ft.com/content/7f435f04-8c05-11e2-b001-00144feabdc0

Fortunately for Canada, until recently, Canada was never cursed by the USA’s original sin – it’s race problem. One would have thought that the Canadians, being only too familiar with the travails of their southern neighbor would have only been too aware of the terrible intractable problems of the USA – and thus would have made strenuous efforts to avoidant hint of a similar fate.

    Economic leftism has been totally missing from American politics for too long now.

    But I bet that she becomes basically another same old same old establishment democrat before her first term.

    Regardless of the fact that Joe was a lazy out of touch candidate, racial loyalty was a big factor in why he lost.

    The main factor is populism though. People are fed up with the establishment. For different definitions of “people”, the populism looks different. Latinos (gaslit as all hell) view abolishing ICE as a common sense populist issue for them. We think that the status quo is so obviously “leftist”, but the actual leftists are extremely unhappy too.

    The ruling class were very smart to diversify the country and hype up racial appeals. It’s preventing landslide victories for an Italy type coalition of populist left plus populist right.

    If (huge if) DSA types could be made to understand that the new right wing is more or less willing to support democratic socialism — in a White country — maybe we could get somewhere. They have to be forced to choose, do they want socialism or do they want a flood of immigrants?

    In hind site, everything is 20-20. How did Crowley lose his heavily gerrymandered district?

    While NYC was once Irish and European that’s not the case anymore. Crowley was elected by the last elderly Irish/European districts filling with new immigrants that could not vote. Which is to say his district was just the way NYC rich like it, filled with renters that can’t vote. As years passed Crowley got away with it by gerrymandering his district to include Astoria Queens (aging Greeks) and City Island Bronx (a wealthy Island off the Bronx). Connecting these areas without adding too many non whites was done by penciling in bridges and large parks and industrial areas.

    So what happened?

    The elderly died.

    With European birth rates collapsed the Irish financial crisis came and passed without a mass immigration to the US.

    But wasn’t there a hurricane or something in Puerto Rico? While Crowley and his fellow congress critters was sending the minimum possible to US colony Puerto Rico a hurricane came and destroyed the island forcing Puerto Ricans to flee to where they had distant relatives. Usually Florida but also NYC. Unlike South American immigrants Puerto Ricans can flash their passport and register to vote in US elections immediately on arrival, but oddly only in the US, as the US colony of Puerto Rico does not have US elections. I am guessing that between the time Crowley gerrymandered his district a significant number of Puerto Ricans moved in. And who did they vote for in this new land? Someone whose last name was like theirs. Add in the children of South American immigrants who if they want to can vote.

    At the same time there was an influx of white hipster types who after years of indoctrination don’t identify as whites. To them Crowley reminded them of the losers they left behind in the dying industrial towns of their youth. And they are sort of right. Crowley was more or less one of the losers they were forced to flee.

    Running out of white people Crowley attempted to court a different ethinic group, guess which one? From Crowley’s congressional web patge “Leading efforts on U.S.-India and U.S.-Bangladeshi relations, including co-chairing the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans and the Bangladesh Caucus”. It is telling that Crowley avoided Hispanics altogether. I wonder if South Asians supported Crowley?

    An amusing side story might be that there was significant Palestinian immigration to Puerto Rico after WWII, possibly to relieve pressure on Israel. Ocasio-Cortez may very well have some MENA heritage.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Puerto_Rico

    For his part Crowley was very concerned about Palestine: Promoting peace in the Middle East through multiple efforts, including authoring legislation to stop children’s television programming that promotes hatred and violence against Israel and the United States. Crowley was also very concerned about Burma, but was as expected silent on Gaza.

    You’re right. Good point. You snapped me out of my lapse into indulging in thinking our biggest problem is immigrants, even illegal immigrants. Deep State and the puppet masters have been engaging in welfare fraud (ripping off taxpayers) for their military-security-consulting-industrial complex for a century. And what they have siphoned off is exponential to the nth power more than social welfare benefits for illegals and poor Americans. To paraphrase William F. Buckley, Jr., if I were given the choice to be governed by Deep State/establishment or by the Trinitario Dominican street gang, I’d unhesitatingly choose the latter.

  28. More minorities also means less focus, or even turning back many of the “progressive issues that Democrats have championed in the past including gay rights/marriage, transgender rights, and women’s issues. It will probably boil down to a gimme, gimme game where every ethnic group wants to get money and power from the government. A lot of liberal I know are living in a bubble. You get the impression from them that they assume that the country will have a white bedrock forever and they always look at things from a white perspective. A perspective where whites need to be patronizing and paternalistic toward minorities. Much of this is virtue signaling to make them look good compared to other whites. When white are a minority, this will become irrelevant.

  29. The “Nation of Immigrants” philosophy favored by the establishment entails a sort of Faustian bargain as the basis of American identity. Those who come, and their immediate descendants, get increased wealth and security in this lifetime at the expense of the natives, with the implied (though rarely stated in explicit terms) caveat that their descendants will one day be among the dispossessed natives before the next wave of replacements, and that if they object to this, Mephistopheles will need to take enhanced measures to enforce the contract.

    27,658 total votes were cast and there are over 600,000 people living in that district.

It appears this reinforces Steve’s theory that Hispanics are not politically active, but enough of them are that if you take an opponent completely for granted it can hurt you.

    If the Republican nominee is willing to do it(and I doubt he would), this would be a good test case for running an explicitly racial campaign just to see how many white Democrat vote he can get.

Let’s face it: many people simply are incapable of competently and consistently performing any job. Guaranteeing these people jobs only guarantees unimaginable stress and counterproductiveness for their would-be bosses and co-workers. And that’s assuming that the government could even be proficient in creating valuable work to begin with.

    Short of exiling, interning or interring these people, the best solution is to just give them no-strings-attached money.

  51. So now the 18% of white voters in the district don’t have a representative that looks like them. Maybe the solution is: more Representatives in Congress? The original Congress had one Rep per about 33,000 people. Maybe we need to have 10 reps in place of 1, here and everywhere.

    Then the whites could have two, the Hispanics have 9,and the other ethnic groups could get represented as well. Right now, the whole system represses the voices of the minority in each district, which can be 300,000 or more people without representation.

    https://www.history.com/topics/knights-of-labor

    The greasy pole. Reminds me of a political cartoon (I can’t find the full image on Google) by which a worker, with his family trying to give him a boost, is struggling mightily climb up one where all the goodies (e.g. higher wages, bread, wine) are located. Off to the side, a group of wealthy industrialists are sitting in their carriage laughing at the man. I wonder what are the ethnic identities of the each of the people…

    Now, Mr. Sailer, I thought only Latinas who win Democratic primaries offer gimmedats to their brown constituents will inevitably result in fewer white men and women likely to support this political party due to having a lack of skin in the game. But how does this narrative jibe with Hispanic politicians like former L.A. mayor Anthony Villaraigosa who got trounced in the California Democratic primary, compliments of white voters who stuck out their necks for a “privileged” white guy? Then, on top of it all, it appears that outgoing Speaker Ryan is also guaranteeing gimmedats to placate the business class and the hordes of brown folks who desperately seek handouts. So perhaps white people after all are going to support their respective political parties at the expense of their “own kind”. Maybe ideology matters more than identity in this particular case. Not that it was ever important in the past.

    We are moving back home in 14 months.

    See, this is the nuts n globes of the entire matter.

    For as long as rootless cosmopolitanism has been in the ascendancy among Dems and many Gopes as well, I’ve observed ostensibly wonderful admirable immigrants who refer to wherever they came from as “home.”

    This isn’t some phenomenon of “poor immigrants, you must make them feel welcome.” No. The US for them is a combination shekel mine and online shopping mall.

    For some of us, this IS our home. We have no other. We aren’t nation-hopping like a Dog Lady peruses online listings for hotels with the best pet day spas, hanging heads on “social media” to see which will give them the best deal by their standards today, joining with others who share their tourism.

    The commenters in those tweets aren’t really scared. They’re sharply, uncomfortably surprised that so many of us feel this way. That there are so many of us, here, today, who will stand up and say:

    Our ancestors cut the umbilical cord to Elsewhere long ago. Our fealty is here.

    They thought we were dead and gone. They’re having a hard time waking up to the fact that we were just quietly watching, like creatures in the forest or tallgrass prairie.

    For my family’s part, 380 years on a continent, with 242 in the republic built by our ancestors, is an incisive population separation phenomenon. We aren’t Americans by some trick of memery. We have split off from our cradle populations. We’ve evolved well past them–which I routinely prove by taking European visitors into the high country then casually observing/pointing out lion and bear spoor. (It makes me happy. It scares them squitzless.)

    Those who bear fealty to the Old World–bowing, say, to the European banking cabals–have been hostile to us forever. Or they’ve tried to figure out how to monetarize that which our people created, or have driven us into wars to enrich themselves. While pretending to be Americans, while redefining “American” as a passenger ticket and a poem on a statue.

    For as long as we have been here, we’ve been beset on all sides by people proclaiming victory over us and destruction of what our ancestors dreamed and built and handed down to us. Maybe they will win, I don’t know. But for now we keep pushing, per aspera ad astra, for just when it seems all is lost, we reset tack and try another course thru the Symplegades. (“Follow the dove and row real hard.”) We slip through. More stuff happens. And we can yet feel gladden’d by the sun.

    As for Crowley’s loss, I understand his Berniebot competitor asserts it is “time for generational, racial and ideological change.”

    Let’s start by ending Affirmative Action and Title IX, rolling back Hart-Celler, and declaring the Civil Rights Act unconstitutional. We opened our gates for 50 years to new blood for the nearly 400-year HBD experiment of the USA. Time to close them. Reintroduce some Island Biogeography.

    The incentive to white Democrats is not to turn around on immigration but to climb on, accede to fringy sentiment, agree and amplify. Figure that you can get your career–already in progress–in before the deluge. We’ve already seen this behavior from Nancy Pelosi and others–”dreamers are the best of us”, “who we are”, that kind of nonsense.

    Scott Alexander of Star Slate Codex wrote a thorough evisceration of the idea of “guaranteed” federal jobs. His basic thesis is that guaranteed basic income has all of the upsides of guaranteed jobs and few if any downsides.

    And he is completely wrong. Ignoring all the long term effects.

    Replacing cash welfare with a minimum wage job guarantee is one of the best public policy changes we could make. In short “work organizes life”. Paying people to sit around and watch TV–and worse have babies!–is a social disaster.

    If we are going to have welfare–i.e. not let them starve–then we should do it in the form–work–that is closest to and emphasizes the virtues of normies (taxpayers). Doesn’t much matter what the work is–picking up trash on the highway, mowing grass in the parks, cleaning public toilets, building or rebarking trails … digging holes and filling them in.

    The point is you insist on them showing up and working for their bread. And thus you create such a culture. The sharper/more-energetic of the lot will get the hang of it and wander off into private sector employment, looking for higher wages. The duller/lazier won’t. But at least you aren’t giving them anything–other than free birth control–and specifically not giving them what is essentially paid maternity leave to fill with another baby. Rather another baby would be more hassle to be juggled … just as it is for normal working moms.

    Alexander is just wrong–wrong in the usual way of not thinking through the incentives and long-term impact of such policies on the nation. A solid culture of “work” and fewer welfare born babies are huge wins, well worth the cost of running nimrod employment.

    IJ–you’re no doubt correct, the work environment will be piss poor.

    But then the people at McDonald’s aren’t there because it’s fulfilling, it’s cause they need the money.

    I think it’s more critical to break the culture of “where’s my check” entitlement and force people to do what the taxpayers do–get their ass up and go to work–then to worry about how mediocre the work product will be, or how many welfare cases get whacked over the head with a shovel because they told a “co-worker” “yo too fat” or “yo nails be ugly”.

    I’ve written many times about things being “just math”, including that essential mathematical logic of the immigrationists position–”immigration forever!”–requires that the US will either
    – change demographically
    or
    – fill up with people
    or
    – some combination of both
    until it becomes just as shitty as everywhere else so people stop coming.

    – Jewish female
    – white male
    – white female
    anytime you can rub out those pale Democrats, the better our world gets

    … on down through the diversity stack.

    Basically you want to vote for the Democrat who is closest to the black, female, muslim, disabled, transgender, lesbian, immigrant–the uber Democrat.

    Of course, if you live in competitve or Republican leaning district than your paramount duty is to vote against the Paul Ryan, 9th circle types. There is no lower form of life on the planet than this treasonous scum, selling out their own voters and working for their voters’ dispossession from within what should be the nationalist party.

    The best thing would be for the government to stay out of it entirely, but rather than guarantied jobs or guarantied income there are other measures – for example you can subsidize private employment with tax credits – maybe it’s cheaper to put in the customer ordering kiosk than to pay a not-that-bright minority $15/hr to press the buttons on the cash register. But if there’s a $5/hr tax credit maybe it pays and the private employer is still paying $10/hr out of pocket and has the proper incentive for making sure that the job is a real job. Instead of costing the government $15/hr to pay guys to hit each other with shovels and get very little done, it costs the government $5/hr and useful work does get done.

    All true. And automation is going to actually ramp up whacking away low skilled labor. (Another reason why immigration enthusiasm is insane.)

    But … we aren’t there yet. There’s still plenty of grunt work we can have people do.

    But even more importantly, my “workfare” program isn’t about whatever labor value you can extract, the point of workfare is to make the welfare recipients live in the same I’ve-got-to-show-up-and-work world that the taxpayers live in.

    That is both:
    – fair
    – encourages a culture of work instead of sloth
    – will help “rescue” some of the welfare cases–absorb some them into the work world
    – suppresses their fertility–they get the same burdens as working class families instead of being on taxpayer financed materinity leave

    ~~

    Note, the very fact that the robotics/automation revolution is rolling out, makes it every more critical to get eugenics going. We need to immediately stop paying incompetents to have children and get that principle well established. So that as automation ramps up whacking more and more low skilled labor, we have a clear paradigm of support for those who can’t cut it, in return for not breeding ever more people who can not cut it.

    The California legislature is full of Hispanic assembly and senate critters from these rotten boroughs as the English called them.

    The feds discovered several really small towns that had no Hispanic city council critters. The feds decided this gross injustice was due to city wide council critter elections. The answer was to create city council districts.

    The problem was that there were no Hispanic neighborhoods in these towns.
    The Whites and Hispanics were throughly mixed up. The feds surveyed these small towns and tried to Gerrymander at least one Hispanic district. Try as they did the feds couldn’t create Hispanic districts.

    The thing about being Mayor and city council in Those small towns is that the Mayor is paid just a few thousand a year for part time work and the council critters are volunteers.

    These are towns of less than 50,000. And the taxpayers pay the federal attorneys to mess around in these towns.

    Of course if the feds did find a majority Hispanic neighborhood they would call it de facto residential segregation.

    I agree with this line of reasoning, AD. It’s long-term cultural change — in this case, the re-establishing of the work ethic — that’s important, not the immediate efficiency of any particular program of enforcement.

    As St Paul states in 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12:

    For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.

    There is a context here, of course — i.e. it’s in reference to those within the church itself who were freeloading — but the principle stands. Charity is for those who genuinely can’t manage on their own; money given to the able-bodied should be in return for work.

  134. @Jack D

    The best thing would be for the government to stay out of it entirely, but rather than guarantied jobs or guarantied income there are other measures – for example you can subsidize private employment with tax credits

    I’d love to see welfare folks move off into the private sector–that’s the goal.

    But the obvious problem with the government trying to engineer this within the welfare/workfare system is that employers can go grubbing for subsidies for their existing low wage work. (I.e. substition.)

    If i’m the owner of McD’s and this program comes in, what do i do? I fire some of my less critical people, have them go down to the welfare office, then hire them back with a subsidy. Even if i can’t get the same folks, i can basically run a scam where i’m constantly trolling for subsidized employees who are half decent (and canning those who are not).

    ~~

    Realistically i think one has to just admit that there is a *bottom* to the competency distribution and that that bottom will always be failing out of private sector employment. (Greater or lesser depending on economic conditions.) But there are others who have just temporarily hit hard times–not very well organized, but willing to work and not abjectly incompetent. So i think you incentivize in the usual way … cash.

    My rough–SWAG–is something (in ratio) like this:
    – workfare say $7/hr, then …
    – private employer to get anyone $10
    – employer to get anyone decent $12/hr
    – employer to keep anyone decent around permanently $15/hr

    Ultimately there’s no way around dealing with the true lumpen-lumpen-proles. The way you fix that is to try and discourage more or them from being born–eugenics.

I’m one of the commenters here most repetitive owning the word “eugenics” and in pointing out that a nation can’t win–won’t survive and prosper–without it.

    But to me workfare is an element of eugenics. Female careerism/employment has been a huge fertility suppressor. (Only the pill is bigger–and i’m not even sure of that.) So why not use that?

    Why would i pay welfare cases to stay home? What are they doing there? They are doing child care, watching TV, eating and fucking their lowlife boyfriends? That’s desirable public policy? Hell no! Make them go to work, like working class women, and get that fertility suppression in the mix. We can pile more sterilzation and birth control subsidies on top of that.

    The women i want to subsidize staying home are married middle class women whose husbands have jobs. Which you can do through a huge minor-child deduction (as Lot or someone was arguing a couple months back). Make it easier for those women to stay home and have babies, not the welfare cases.

    White guys simply throw “better country” than anyone else. It’s not a “maybe a little better” thing. It’s not even a 50% or 100% better thing. It’s an orders of magnitude better thing.

    True. And the tragedy is that we can’t see that, we can’t see what we’re throwing away. Even letting one immigrant in should be a big decision: Is this the right kind of person? How would he and his descendants change or affect our country if we admit him?

    With such a vast chasm between the quality of life in non-white and white countries, people will lie, cheat, even kill, to get from the former to the latter. It stands to reason. It would be against human nature if they didn’t. A white country is one that, by definition, needs obsessively vigilant border control.

    “Crowley won three terms (6 years) from his district. If his constituents were that fanatically anti-white, how did he get elected to begin with?”

    He didn’t participate in prior debates, leaving his voters not knowing what he looked like. That was his mistake this time. Joe Crowley is the kind of name I could imagine a black guy having. I’m sure his dumbass constituents probably thought the same. Showing up on television and letting your racist constituents see you as a highly competent white man was a mistake.
