Clinton cabinet secretary and current UC Berkeley professor Robert Reich, having recently suggested (twice) that the Berkeley violence was likely an alt-right false flag, now attributes the latest Swedish immigrant riots to Donald Trump provoking them with his lies about immigrant violence in Sweden.

  1. I realize that Reich is, and always has been, a hack.

    But what is this guy’s game lately?

    What does he gain for his side by making himself look ridiculous?

    "Ridiculous" is like "embarrassing" and "shameful". They only have meaning in the context of one's peers, who would offer the ridicule or cause feelings of embarrassment and shame. Are any of his peers doing so?

    I know I'm not saying anything insightful here, but it's hit me recently we're still using the language of a consensus society that is perhaps disappearing. Reich occupies a place in one part of society that offers no critique or ridicule for his kind of statements. If his behavior is not ridiculous to those within his job, his social circle, or his media's narrative, then no, it's not ridiculous, and his world is large enough for him to move through it and not experience otherwise.

  2. “now attributes the latest Swedish immigrant riots to Donald Trump provoking them with his lies about immigrant violence in Sweden.”

    Why were Muslims in Europe also violently rioting when Barack Hussein Obama was POTUS. Can Robert Reich answer that? Wasn’t Barack Hussein Obama suppose to be The Magic Negro who bridges the cultural divide between The Islamic World and The Western World. After all he has a foot in both worlds, being the off spring of a Muslim father from Kenya and a Western woman from Kansas.

    Hilarious the whole thing would be--if my race and culture weren't being genocided. But the setup here is perfect:

    Trump should immediately declare that all young Swedish women who because of immigration no longer feel that Sweden is a "safe space" for them, are eligible for refugee status in the US.

    Troll these bastards. Mock these bastards. Make fun of these bastards. It's not enough to state the intellectual arguments. We nationalists have those hands down--though unfortunately we don't have politicians (inc. Trump) stating them very well--but we're still losing. We need to start *mocking* the globalist nut jobs and making them the butt of jokes and look as ridiculous and insane as their positions actually are.

  7. You gotta love Reich for his allegiance to positions that even nitwits, halfwits and dimwits would walk away from.

    Reich raises prostitution to an art form. No vice is too vicious for Reich, no burden of guilt too great, no opprobrium of shame too onerous for Reich to repent of his slavish utterances in service to the Father of Lies.

    Reich is a perfect Leftist, devoid of any redeeming quality, and serving his master with alacrity, celerity and oblivious stupidity.

    And, all those European female politicians (not Swedes, those sheep) are saying "no" to wearing a hijab these last 6 months during international symposiums and events. There's a drip, drip, drip starting in Europe about the wisdom of allowing all these migrants to come into their countries, most who refuse to assimilate, for the last 35 years. Plus, now that human trafficking is an official business in North Africa, Europe is freaking out about the summer. I live in hope. I hate to see all the individual countries in Europe descend into further chaos and lawlessness.

    By the way, shit went down in Rinkeby, which I cited above, the night that Trump spoke about this. The news I have heard is that one officer is still in serious condition.

    Reich will be 70 this year. Why is he still teaching at Berkeley? He’s past retirement age. He’s certainly heading into premature senility.

    Here’s some remarks about him from Rate my Professors:

    Class verges on indoctrination. He requires that you use heavy textual support (NOT outside sources) when writing your papers, then assigns only texts that espouse liberal or extremely liberal positions. This makes writing papers with moderate or conservative arguments impossible to support with the resources provided, and doomed to get bad grades.

    Reich, even though a great lecturer, has created a class that does NOT promote critical thinking. Papers are to be heavily based on the reading and original ideas are not allowed. If you don’t agree with the readings, you are discounted marks for the “understanding the texts” criteria (the texts hold the truth). If you want to think, not for you.

    Really Simple Class. My favorite part was that there were no tests. Only Two papers. If you take it be sure to write the papers not only well but with a very left wing view. Otherwise it is REALLY hard to get an A. I learned that lesson the hard way.

    Reich is an engaging professor and a decent guy. However, he moralizes constantly without providing a basis for his positions. He’s very much part of the establishment he criticizes so often. There is hardly an issue he contends that can’t be solved by the state.

    "Class verges on indoctrination."

    The rest of your comment made this an understatement.

    I recently had to take over the affairs of a very successful academic. I noticed that all the members of her clique reviewed each other's papers and articles for "refereed" publishing. The amount of critical thinking was zero, and they avoid non-leftist concepts like a vampire avoids garlic.

    Academia is not only an intellectual, but a financial drain on our country. Universities are always building palatial classrooms and laboratories. They are almost mandatory for middle class kids because there are so many employment barriers requiring a degree. The degrees themselves serve as a covert, but extremely expensive, IQ certificate, as companies and government agencies are forbidden to base their hiring on any test appearing to measure general intelligence.

    Academia contributes nothing to the intellectual life of the country, and is a serious obstacle to the fortunes of its victims: students.
  24. I think you folks all miss his point.

    “48 hours after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community.”

  38. It’s really amazing that these immigrants have no fear of mob violence from the natives.

    In a normal country, immigrants fear the native-born masses. Not the other way around.

    Here’s an interesting documentary about the Zoot Suit riots.

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

    The Zoot Suit Riots were a series of racist attacks in June 1943 in Los Angeles, California, United States, between Mexican American youths and European American servicemen stationed in Southern California.
    White servicemen and civilians attacked youths who wore zoot suits because the outfits were considered unpatriotic and extravagant during wartime, in which rationing of fabric was required for the World War II war effort. While most of the violence was directed toward Mexican American youth, young African American and Filipino Americans were attacked as well because they also sported zoot suits.[1] The Zoot Suit Riots were related to fears and hostilities aroused by the coverage of the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial, following the killing of a young Latino man in a barrio near Los Angeles. The riot appeared to trigger similar attacks that year against Latinos in Chicago, San Diego, Oakland, Evansville, Philadelphia, and New York City.[2]

    Marching through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, a mob of several thousand soldiers, sailors, and civilians, proceeded to beat up every zoot suiter they could find. Pushing its way into the important motion picture theaters, the mob ordered the management to turn on the house lights and then ran up and down the aisles dragging Mexicans out of their seats. Streetcars were halted while Mexicans, and some Filipinos and Negroes, were jerked from their seats, pushed into the streets and beaten with a sadistic frenzy.[24]

    The above is the type of thing that immigrants typically fear.

    In Europe the volatile immigrants skew younger and crazier (via Allah) than the native population. How would you like to be a forty year old French or Swedish policeman who is in a street fight riot situation with Muslim and African youths? You can easily get hurt really bad. Fractured skulls, broken limbs to where you cannot work your job anymore while having a family to provide for. While the migrant yoofs got nothing to lose and fight with abandon and torch automobiles, smash police vehicles.

    I see an unfair fight that the native born police forces will lose and have been losing. Advantage goes to the Trojan Horse these nations more or less encouraged to enter their gates.

    You do realize that Muslims believe that Allah has given them Europe? The whole world in fact. Why live in arid Muslim wastelands when you can live where it rains and it is green? And with great welfare benefits to suck down so you can raise a family without working. And family translating into more soldiers for Allah living in Europe. This is why all Muslim nations ban abortion.

    Why do people keep googling Wikepedia and quoting it? Even middle school kids are told it is often untruthful.

    Here is the truth about the zoom suit riots.
    1 the mex Americans were mostly not born here and we're not citizens because the parents never bothered withcitizebship for them.

    So as non citizens they were not subject to the draft

    2 the soldiers took the train from Pendleton and other bases south of Los Angeles and got off at the main down train station which was in a Mexican neighborhood

    3 the zoot suiters were not law abiding
    ordinary men. They were not all convicted criminals but many were. The rest were gangster wannabes

    4 on Friday and weekends the zoot suiters gathered at the train station and taunted the soldiers that they were not subject to the draft They began ambushing soldiers, maybe 12 or 15 zoot suiters to 3 or 4 soldiers

    5 the train station security guards stopped allowing zoot suiters to hang around the station.

    6 so the zoot suiters lay in wait a couple blocks away to ambush the soldiers

    7 the soldiers went on leave in groups of 15 or so instead of 3 or 4 so as to be able to fight the gangs of Mexicans Once the soldiers did that it was fair fights between large groups on both sides.

    8 the major taunt by the zoot suiters was "ha ha we're not subject to the draft so we can stay home while you Americabs go off to die in the pacific"

    As well as the ambushes that taunt causes resentment.

    Googling the notoriously anti White left biased Wikepedia isn't research, it's as bad as quoting the NYT.

    Robert has been smoking too much pot. As an authority on all things 'Sweden', the latest car-b-que in Sweden, in Muslim-majority suburbs surrounding Stockholm, is well, boring....and, duh, the cops were pulling in to arrest a drug dealer (heroin from Afghanistan) who had been under surveillance for quite sometime. I guess Robert did not read the police report as to why things got out of hand, again. Most of the perps were teenagers, the fire lighters.

    Car-b-ques and vandalism has been happening for years now, that's why Sweden is called the 'new Somalia' by snarky Scandi teenagers, literally, for years....Finland, Norway, and Denmark are scared shitless that this will come to their burbs. You see, just like San Francisco and New York, only the wealthy live in the center. The burbs are where the working poor live. But, the upshot: cops have had enough in Malmo & Stockholm; right wing groups are growing, and "elections have consequences!" Oh, please, I dare him to spend the night in one of these suburbs...in a car! haha! Waving an American flag!

    There was a riot in the same town, on Friday night. I'll get back and print out the name and news as soon as I retrieve it...

    “You see, just like San Francisco and New York, only the wealthy live in the center.”

    Those are bad examples because there are plenty of overpriced affluent suburbs in the New York City and San Francisco metropolitan areas.

    Breaking one's fundamental link to reality for the safe space afforded by fantasy, illusion, and delusion can lead to all kinds of mental disorders listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM5). We know this to be true in private life. It also appears to be true in public life as private manias morph into mass hysterias.

    Perhaps the DSM5 has been quietly adopted by the DNC as the manual governing policy development and political campaigning. Nothing else works for explaining their policies, perceptions, quips, and manias. The best evidence for this is the MSM.

    A few years ago I was impressed by a couple of speeches by Reich when he made sensible-seeming comments about reviving the working and middle classes IIRC and railed against the power of lobbyists.

    But his books turned out to be very thin. And now Trump's mysterious ability to draw out the idiot in leftists has fully exposed him.

    In truth Trump's actions have been rather mild (compared say what might be coming down the pike) yet he has stripped progressives of their ability to shield their radical agendas behind 'reasonable' talk of fairness, human rights, justice. These mad claims from the likes of Reich are fumbling attempts to recapture the power to obfuscate and confuse us poor rubes.

    I'm betting on a negligent discharge. He was pulling on the yute, and probably had his finger on the trigger. Both hands tend to do the same thing, so while grasping and controlling the miscreant with his right hand while holding the pistol with his left the fingers on both hands tend to contract. I wonder if he's right-handed or a lefty. I can't quite see if the yute makes a grab for the pistol.

    He was justified in unholstering. Disparity of force, they'd already charged him, and the doofus in the foreground is reaching for his own belt with his hand hidden. The homeowner probably didn't want to take the yute to the ground and control him because he didn't want to get jumped while down.

  48. I disagree with his recent tweets, but Robert Reich is a throwback I like. There is a lot in his program described here that Trump should implement. Reich himself would not work in the Trump admin, but I continue to think Trump is making a large mistake by having most of his cabinet random CEOs and billionaires, but not a single man or woman who advocates for labor and the middle class.

    In particular, the building trade and public safety unions are very open to supporting Republicans if they favor their policies. Both of Trump’s labor picks look like they are standard issue anti-union corporate types.

    He attended John Jay High School in Cross River, New York, and Dartmouth College, graduating with an A.B. summa cum laude in 1968 and winning a Rhodes Scholarship to study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Oxford. Reich subsequently earned a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal. At Yale, he was classmates with Bill and Hillary Clinton, Clarence Thomas, Michael Medved and Richard Blumenthal.

    From 1973 to 1974 he served as law clerk to Judge Frank M. Coffin, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and from 1974 to 1976 was Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, Robert Bork. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed him Director of the Policy Planning Staff at the Federal Trade Commission.

    From 1980 until 1992, Reich taught at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where he wrote a series of influential books and articles, including The Next American Frontier and The Work of Nations. In The Next American Frontier he blamed the nation’s lagging economic growth on “paper entrepreneurialism”—financial and legal gamesmanship that drained the economy of resources needed for better products and services.

    In The Work of Nations, he argues that a nation’s competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them—rather than on the profitability of companies headquartered within it. Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation’s people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation’s future standard of living uniquely depends. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy.

    Bill Clinton incorporated Reich’s thinking into his 1992 campaign platform, “Putting People First,” and after being elected, invited Reich to head his economic transition team. Reich later joined the administration as Secretary of Labor. During his tenure, he implemented the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), successfully promoted increasing the minimum wage, successfully lobbied to pass the School-to-Work Jobs Act, and launched a number of job training programs.

    I agree with much of what Prof Reich wrote in his books about how the weakening of labour unions and turbo capitalism had destroyed the prospects of the middle and working classes.

    Actually, it's a very interesting quote. Bringing Reich into policy-making discussions with articles like this is like running the video of an old, black-and-white movie through the colorizer and upscaler on the TV set. It has some entertainment value, but you can do much better.


    In The Next American Frontier he blamed the nation’s lagging economic growth on “paper entrepreneurialism”—financial and legal gamesmanship that drained the economy of resources needed for better products and services.

     

    The upscaled version is: "The investment bankers, loan specialists, and derivative wizards, all operating from government guarantees, are the real centers of profit in our quasi-socialist economy. All these paper entrepreneurs were enthusiastically courted by Hillary, who was repelled by a true productive entrepreneur, Donald Trump."

    "a nation’s competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them"

    The upscaled result is: "A nation depends on the IQ and moral character of its people, traits which are inherited rather than taught. It is therefore important to filter immigration carefully or eliminate it altogether."

    ". Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation’s people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation’s future standard of living uniquely depends. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy."

    The upscale is: "The free flow of capital, trade, and labor across borders devastates the middle and working class people who constitute the core identity of the country. Trump is completely right to pull out of the TPP and to demand well-negotiated trade agreements and intelligent tariffs to preserve American labor, even at the cost of higher-priced consumer items.

    Why would Reich be brought in as a consultant when his statements have to go through rigorous filtering to even make sense?

    Paris has upscale suburbs in addition to their suburban ghettoes, too.
     
    They even have a separate name for each. The upscale suburbs are the faubourgs (e.g., the faubourg St.-Germain, the old aristocratic quarter of Paris) while the slums on the outskirts are the banlieues. The faubourgs are generally older suburbs; some used to be working-class, but have been gentrified. It is in the banlieues that the no-go zones are, and the car-b-cues take place.

    This is a general Latin pattern of settlement. It is seen in South America, where the rich have luxury apartments in the cities, and the poor their hovels in the favelas.

    I'm not sure why it is this way, in contrast to the U.S. pattern of inner-city slums and wealthy suburbs. Perhaps it reflects the greater centralization of government in European and Latin American countries. Here the inner-city poor have a great deal of influence over the election of mayors and aldermen, and these have significant power over local government; in France, and perhaps elsewhere, the real power of government reposes in the hands of prefects appointed by the central government, while mayors and city councillors are relatively weak.

    In Holland, Wilders is a lock to be the largest party but well short of a majority. Every other party has ruled out a coalition with him.

Coffin, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and from 1974 to 1976 was Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, Robert Bork. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed him Director of the Policy Planning Staff at the Federal Trade Commission.

    From 1980 until 1992, Reich taught at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where he wrote a series of influential books and articles, including The Next American Frontier and The Work of Nations. In The Next American Frontier he blamed the nation's lagging economic growth on "paper entrepreneurialism"—financial and legal gamesmanship that drained the economy of resources needed for better products and services.

    In The Work of Nations, he argues that a nation's competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them—rather than on the profitability of companies headquartered within it. Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation's people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation's future standard of living uniquely depends. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy.

    Bill Clinton incorporated Reich's thinking into his 1992 campaign platform, "Putting People First," and after being elected, invited Reich to head his economic transition team. Reich later joined the administration as Secretary of Labor. During his tenure, he implemented the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), successfully promoted increasing the minimum wage, successfully lobbied to pass the School-to-Work Jobs Act, and launched a number of job training programs.
     

    I agree with much of what Prof Reich wrote in his books about how the weakening of labour unions and turbo capitalism had destroyed the prospects of the middle and working classes. But he Labour Sec at one time and I have wondered how it was that he could not do a single thing about it while in government. After this tweet I begin to understand.

    In Euro news, Marine has narrowed recent second round polls from 30 behind to 14-16 behind the mainstream candidates. The anti-EU left wing splinter party is looking like it will get more than 10 points in the first round, and could be a large source of votes for FN the second round.

    In Holland, Wilders is a lock to be the largest party but well short of a majority. Every other party has ruled out a coalition with him. So the result looks like a German style situation with the center right in coalition with the center left, or alternatively Wilders having to support the center right party without being allowed in its government, and despite getting far more votes.

    So that big recent survey showed that 55% of Europeans want moslem immigration shut down completely, including 61% of French. Netherlands isn’t listed, so I’ll just make a rough estimate by averaging Germany and Belgium: 58.5%.

    Why in the hell aren’t Le Pen and Wilders set for big landslides, then? What’s going on in Europeans’ heads? Then want the invasion stopped but they can’t bring themselves to vote for the candidates who might stop it? It’s a fight to the death between survival instinct and virtue signaling I guess.

    It's really amazing that these immigrants have no fear of mob violence from the natives.

    In a normal country, immigrants fear the native-born masses. Not the other way around.

    Here's an interesting documentary about the Zoot Suit riots.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwINn5DEL1c

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

    The Zoot Suit Riots were a series of racist attacks in June 1943 in Los Angeles, California, United States, between Mexican American youths and European American servicemen stationed in Southern California.
    White servicemen and civilians attacked youths who wore zoot suits because the outfits were considered unpatriotic and extravagant during wartime, in which rationing of fabric was required for the World War II war effort. While most of the violence was directed toward Mexican American youth, young African American and Filipino Americans were attacked as well because they also sported zoot suits.[1] The Zoot Suit Riots were related to fears and hostilities aroused by the coverage of the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial, following the killing of a young Latino man in a barrio near Los Angeles. The riot appeared to trigger similar attacks that year against Latinos in Chicago, San Diego, Oakland, Evansville, Philadelphia, and New York City.[2]
     

    Marching through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, a mob of several thousand soldiers, sailors, and civilians, proceeded to beat up every zoot suiter they could find. Pushing its way into the important motion picture theaters, the mob ordered the management to turn on the house lights and then ran up and down the aisles dragging Mexicans out of their seats. Streetcars were halted while Mexicans, and some Filipinos and Negroes, were jerked from their seats, pushed into the streets and beaten with a sadistic frenzy.[24]
     
    The above is the type of thing that immigrants typically fear.

    It’s really amazing that these immigrants have no fear of mob violence from the natives.
    In a normal country, immigrants fear the native-born masses. Not the other way around.

    In Europe the volatile immigrants skew younger and crazier (via Allah) than the native population. How would you like to be a forty year old French or Swedish policeman who is in a street fight riot situation with Muslim and African youths? You can easily get hurt really bad. Fractured skulls, broken limbs to where you cannot work your job anymore while having a family to provide for. While the migrant yoofs got nothing to lose and fight with abandon and torch automobiles, smash police vehicles.

    I see an unfair fight that the native born police forces will lose and have been losing. Advantage goes to the Trojan Horse these nations more or less encouraged to enter their gates.

    You do realize that Muslims believe that Allah has given them Europe? The whole world in fact. Why live in arid Muslim wastelands when you can live where it rains and it is green? And with great welfare benefits to suck down so you can raise a family without working. And family translating into more soldiers for Allah living in Europe. This is why all Muslim nations ban abortion.

I wonder if he’s right-handed or a lefty. I can’t quite see if the yute makes a grab for the pistol.

    He was justified in unholstering. Disparity of force, they’d already charged him, and the doofus in the foreground is reaching for his own belt with his hand hidden.

    Trump is so wrong to easy on Wall Street. WS is a real monster that has to be attacked.

    And tax cuts for the rich? Again?

    I think Jewish Views come in three flavors.

    1. Objective rational thought. When it involves something that doesn’t trigger their emotions or ideological vanity, Jews can be very good critics. And this can be said of Reich too. On some topics, he is reliable. Jews may go into some show-off acrobatics, but they remain faithful to issue at hand.

    2. Ideological thought. All people have some ideological bias, but Jewish intellectualism sometimes settles for Big Ideas. And there is a tendency to place everything into such framework. Greenspan and his Randian free market, for instance.

    3. Tribal issues. This is where even the most erudite and intellectual Jew can go into hysterical and paranoid mode and go nuts.
    Ron Rosenbaum is a good example of this. He has written intelligent and thoughtful stuff on history. But when something triggers his tribal paranoia, a piece of white bread or turkey meat is Hitler staring at him.

    Breaking one’s fundamental link to reality for the safe space afforded by fantasy, illusion, and delusion can lead to all kinds of mental disorders listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM5). We know this to be true in private life. It also appears to be true in public life as private manias morph into mass hysterias.

    Perhaps the DSM5 has been quietly adopted by the DNC as the manual governing policy development and political campaigning. Nothing else works for explaining their policies, perceptions, quips, and manias. The best evidence for this is the MSM.

    "Ridiculous" is like "embarrassing" and "shameful". They only have meaning in the context of one's peers, who would offer the ridicule or cause feelings of embarrassment and shame. Are any of his peers doing so?

    I know I'm not saying anything insightful here, but it's hit me recently we're still using the language of a consensus society that is perhaps disappearing. Reich occupies a place in one part of society that offers no critique or ridicule for his kind of statements. If his behavior is not ridiculous to those within his job, his social circle, or his media's narrative, then no, it's not ridiculous, and his world is large enough for him to move through it and not experience otherwise.

    BREAKING NEWS!!

    A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.

    When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

    Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. In the presence of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth its surface, without impeding its ongoing decay.

    Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons, and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.

    Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best-maintained buildings.

    Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

    It may be of interest that there is actually an alkaloid called pelosine. It is a derivative of tubocurarine, occurring naturally in Cissampelos pareira (Linn.).

    http://www.chemspider.com/Chemical-Structure.10198034.html

    I have found no information as to pelosine's medicinal or toxicological characteristics, but it is probably poisonous if given in a sufficiently large dose, like its Congressional namesake. Perhaps a fitting use might be to replace pentobarbital for the purposes of lethal injection. The down-side would be if the convicts died with their faces in a horrible rictus, like that regularly exhibited by the over-botoxed Nancy.

    These requirements are why Apple, Inc.’s products are made in two places: China…and Brasil.

I guess Robert did not read the police report as to why things got out of hand, again. Most of the perps were teenagers, the fire lighters.

    Car-b-ques and vandalism has been happening for years now, that's why Sweden is called the 'new Somalia' by snarky Scandi teenagers, literally, for years....Finland, Norway, and Denmark are scared shitless that this will come to their burbs. You see, just like San Francisco and New York, only the wealthy live in the center. The burbs are where the working poor live.

    Reich will be 70 this year. Why is he still teaching at Berkeley? He's past retirement age. He's certainly heading into premature senility.

    Here's some remarks about him from Rate my Professors:

    Class verges on indoctrination. He requires that you use heavy textual support (NOT outside sources) when writing your papers, then assigns only texts that espouse liberal or extremely liberal positions. This makes writing papers with moderate or conservative arguments impossible to support with the resources provided, and doomed to get bad grades.

    Reich, even though a great lecturer, has created a class that does NOT promote critical thinking. Papers are to be heavily based on the reading and original ideas are not allowed. If you don't agree with the readings, you are discounted marks for the "understanding the texts" criteria (the texts hold the truth). If you want to think, not for you.

    Really Simple Class. My favorite part was that there were no tests. Only Two papers. If you take it be sure to write the papers not only well but with a very left wing view. Otherwise it is REALLY hard to get an A. I learned that lesson the hard way.

    Reich is an engaging professor and a decent guy. However, he moralizes constantly without providing a basis for his positions. He's very much part of the establishment he criticizes so often. There is hardly an issue he contends that can't be solved by the state.

    “Class verges on indoctrination.”

    The rest of your comment made this an understatement.

    I recently had to take over the affairs of a very successful academic. I noticed that all the members of her clique reviewed each other’s papers and articles for “refereed” publishing. The amount of critical thinking was zero, and they avoid non-leftist concepts like a vampire avoids garlic.

    Academia is not only an intellectual, but a financial drain on our country. Universities are always building palatial classrooms and laboratories. They are almost mandatory for middle class kids because there are so many employment barriers requiring a degree. The degrees themselves serve as a covert, but extremely expensive, IQ certificate, as companies and government agencies are forbidden to base their hiring on any test appearing to measure general intelligence.

    Academia contributes nothing to the intellectual life of the country, and is a serious obstacle to the fortunes of its victims: students.

    I disagree with his recent tweets, but Robert Reich is a throwback I like. There is a lot in his program described here that Trump should implement. Reich himself would not work in the Trump admin, but I continue to think Trump is making a large mistake by having most of his cabinet random CEOs and billionaires, but not a single man or woman who advocates for labor and the middle class.

    In particular, the building trade and public safety unions are very open to supporting Republicans if they favor their policies. Both of Trump's labor picks look like they are standard issue anti-union corporate types.

    He attended John Jay High School in Cross River, New York, and Dartmouth College, graduating with an A.B. summa cum laude in 1968 and winning a Rhodes Scholarship to study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the University of Oxford. Reich subsequently earned a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal. At Yale, he was classmates with Bill and Hillary Clinton, Clarence Thomas, Michael Medved and Richard Blumenthal.

    From 1973 to 1974 he served as law clerk to Judge Frank M. Coffin, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and from 1974 to 1976 was Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, Robert Bork. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter appointed him Director of the Policy Planning Staff at the Federal Trade Commission.

    From 1980 until 1992, Reich taught at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, where he wrote a series of influential books and articles, including The Next American Frontier and The Work of Nations. In The Next American Frontier he blamed the nation's lagging economic growth on "paper entrepreneurialism"—financial and legal gamesmanship that drained the economy of resources needed for better products and services.

    In The Work of Nations, he argues that a nation's competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them—rather than on the profitability of companies headquartered within it. Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation's people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation's future standard of living uniquely depends. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy.

    Bill Clinton incorporated Reich's thinking into his 1992 campaign platform, "Putting People First," and after being elected, invited Reich to head his economic transition team. Reich later joined the administration as Secretary of Labor. During his tenure, he implemented the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), successfully promoted increasing the minimum wage, successfully lobbied to pass the School-to-Work Jobs Act, and launched a number of job training programs.
     

    Actually, it’s a very interesting quote. Bringing Reich into policy-making discussions with articles like this is like running the video of an old, black-and-white movie through the colorizer and upscaler on the TV set. It has some entertainment value, but you can do much better.

    In The Next American Frontier he blamed the nation’s lagging economic growth on “paper entrepreneurialism”—financial and legal gamesmanship that drained the economy of resources needed for better products and services.

    The upscaled version is: “The investment bankers, loan specialists, and derivative wizards, all operating from government guarantees, are the real centers of profit in our quasi-socialist economy. All these paper entrepreneurs were enthusiastically courted by Hillary, who was repelled by a true productive entrepreneur, Donald Trump.”

    “a nation’s competitiveness depends on the education and skills of its people and the infrastructure that connects them”

    The upscaled result is: “A nation depends on the IQ and moral character of its people, traits which are inherited rather than taught. It is therefore important to filter immigration carefully or eliminate it altogether.”

    “. Private capital, he says, is increasingly global and footloose—while a nation’s people—its human capital—constitutes the one resource on which a nation’s future standard of living uniquely depends. He urges policy makers to make such public investments the cornerstone of economic policy.”

    The upscale is: “The free flow of capital, trade, and labor across borders devastates the middle and working class people who constitute the core identity of the country. Trump is completely right to pull out of the TPP and to demand well-negotiated trade agreements and intelligent tariffs to preserve American labor, even at the cost of higher-priced consumer items.

    Why would Reich be brought in as a consultant when his statements have to go through rigorous filtering to even make sense?

    It's really amazing that these immigrants have no fear of mob violence from the natives.

    In a normal country, immigrants fear the native-born masses. Not the other way around.

    Here's an interesting documentary about the Zoot Suit riots.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwINn5DEL1c

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

    The Zoot Suit Riots were a series of racist attacks in June 1943 in Los Angeles, California, United States, between Mexican American youths and European American servicemen stationed in Southern California.
    White servicemen and civilians attacked youths who wore zoot suits because the outfits were considered unpatriotic and extravagant during wartime, in which rationing of fabric was required for the World War II war effort. While most of the violence was directed toward Mexican American youth, young African American and Filipino Americans were attacked as well because they also sported zoot suits.[1] The Zoot Suit Riots were related to fears and hostilities aroused by the coverage of the Sleepy Lagoon murder trial, following the killing of a young Latino man in a barrio near Los Angeles. The riot appeared to trigger similar attacks that year against Latinos in Chicago, San Diego, Oakland, Evansville, Philadelphia, and New York City.[2]
     

    Marching through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, a mob of several thousand soldiers, sailors, and civilians, proceeded to beat up every zoot suiter they could find. Pushing its way into the important motion picture theaters, the mob ordered the management to turn on the house lights and then ran up and down the aisles dragging Mexicans out of their seats. Streetcars were halted while Mexicans, and some Filipinos and Negroes, were jerked from their seats, pushed into the streets and beaten with a sadistic frenzy.[24]
     
    The above is the type of thing that immigrants typically fear.

    Why do people keep googling Wikepedia and quoting it? Even middle school kids are told it is often untruthful.

    Here is the truth about the zoom suit riots.
    1 the mex Americans were mostly not born here and we’re not citizens because the parents never bothered withcitizebship for them.

    So as non citizens they were not subject to the draft

    2 the soldiers took the train from Pendleton and other bases south of Los Angeles and got off at the main down train station which was in a Mexican neighborhood

    3 the zoot suiters were not law abiding
    ordinary men. They were not all convicted criminals but many were. The rest were gangster wannabes

    4 on Friday and weekends the zoot suiters gathered at the train station and taunted the soldiers that they were not subject to the draft They began ambushing soldiers, maybe 12 or 15 zoot suiters to 3 or 4 soldiers

    5 the train station security guards stopped allowing zoot suiters to hang around the station.

    6 so the zoot suiters lay in wait a couple blocks away to ambush the soldiers

    7 the soldiers went on leave in groups of 15 or so instead of 3 or 4 so as to be able to fight the gangs of Mexicans Once the soldiers did that it was fair fights between large groups on both sides.

    8 the major taunt by the zoot suiters was “ha ha we’re not subject to the draft so we can stay home while you Americabs go off to die in the pacific”

    As well as the ambushes that taunt causes resentment.

    Googling the notoriously anti White left biased Wikepedia isn’t research, it’s as bad as quoting the NYT.

    Those do seem to be the questions. It seems likely it was an attempt to square the circle for both; “We’re going to show that racist Islamophobe Wilders; we’ll put a Moroccan on his security detail. If the Moroccan does his job to Wilders’ satisfaction, that proves Wilders is wrong about Muslims. If the Moroccan screws Wilders over, well, Wilders had it coming. Most important, by detailing a Moroccan to Wilders’ security, we will have proven that we are not tainted by Wilders’ heresy. We certainly weren’t about to legitimize his bigotry (that’s for Muslims to do)”

    Or some such bottomless insanity.

    In Euro news, Marine has narrowed recent second round polls from 30 behind to 14-16 behind the mainstream candidates. The anti-EU left wing splinter party is looking like it will get more than 10 points in the first round, and could be a large source of votes for FN the second round.

    In Holland, Wilders is a lock to be the largest party but well short of a majority. Every other party has ruled out a coalition with him. So the result looks like a German style situation with the center right in coalition with the center left, or alternatively Wilders having to support the center right party without being allowed in its government, and despite getting far more votes.

    There is a long and broad trend of this, across the West. It absolutely vindicates WNs and other right-wing dissidents, who have been saying for decades that the West is ruled by a single party.

    In The U.S it's the opposite, the suburbs are the place to live because most of our city centers have a very large undesirable violent NAM underclass like Baltimore, Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Memphis, Chicago, Detroit,etc.

    There are exceptions when it comes to city centers that are pleasant places to live like New York City and San Diego for example, but they are the exceptions and not the rule.

    Good point overall, sir. I’ll just quibble with the notion that anywhere in Manhattan is a pleasant place to live, even without children, and it is even worse when trying to raise children. I grew up near NYC and have long ceased to understand considering Manhattan an exciting or impressive or pleasant place to live. Like anywhere, it is much better with money, but it’s even more baffling why people who have real money would choose to live in that hostile, dirty, decaying alien craphole.

The upscale suburbs are the faubourgs (e.g., the faubourg St.-Germain, the old aristocratic quarter of Paris) while the slums on the outskirts are the banlieues. The faubourgs are generally older suburbs; some used to be working-class, but have been gentrified. It is in the banlieues that the no-go zones are, and the car-b-cues take place.

    This is a general Latin pattern of settlement. It is seen in South America, where the rich have luxury apartments in the cities, and the poor their hovels in the favelas.

    I’m not sure why it is this way, in contrast to the U.S. pattern of inner-city slums and wealthy suburbs. Perhaps it reflects the greater centralization of government in European and Latin American countries. Here the inner-city poor have a great deal of influence over the election of mayors and aldermen, and these have significant power over local government; in France, and perhaps elsewhere, the real power of government reposes in the hands of prefects appointed by the central government, while mayors and city councillors are relatively weak.

    It goes back to the Ancient World, where rich people lived in the urbs, while the losers lived in the sub-urbs.

    Rich English, in contrast, preferred their country estates as their main homes. Modern suburbs emerged as a low cost compromise between estate living and being convenient to urban jobs.

    I'm betting on a negligent discharge. He was pulling on the yute, and probably had his finger on the trigger. Both hands tend to do the same thing, so while grasping and controlling the miscreant with his right hand while holding the pistol with his left the fingers on both hands tend to contract. I wonder if he's right-handed or a lefty. I can't quite see if the yute makes a grab for the pistol.

    He was justified in unholstering. Disparity of force, they'd already charged him, and the doofus in the foreground is reaching for his own belt with his hand hidden. The homeowner probably didn't want to take the yute to the ground and control him because he didn't want to get jumped while down.

    The cop says the miscreant said "I'll shoot you," a threat. The yute says he said "I'll sue you." Frankly, the youths are obviously a bunch of dirtbags and richly deserving of a whack upside the head, and it's entirely believable that they made the threat--a couple of them went after the homeowner. Rumor is that the cop's house had been frequently vandalized, and from the behavior of the kids in the video I'd believe that, so I don't have much sympathy for 'em.

    BREAKING NEWS!!

    A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.

    When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

    Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. In the presence of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth its surface, without impeding its ongoing decay.

    Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons, and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.

    Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best-maintained buildings.

    Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

    A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium.

    It may be of interest that there is actually an alkaloid called pelosine. It is a derivative of tubocurarine, occurring naturally in Cissampelos pareira (Linn.).

    http://www.chemspider.com/Chemical-Structure.10198034.html

    I have found no information as to pelosine’s medicinal or toxicological characteristics, but it is probably poisonous if given in a sufficiently large dose, like its Congressional namesake. Perhaps a fitting use might be to replace pentobarbital for the purposes of lethal injection. The down-side would be if the convicts died with their faces in a horrible rictus, like that regularly exhibited by the over-botoxed Nancy.

    What you have to understand is that President Trump has the obscure super power that allows him to reverse cause and effect.
    And he has a lesser power that allows him to delaminate the minds of mental dwarfs.
    (A delaminated mind separates along its suture folds and curls into demented shapes; then the mind's owner starts speaking in idiocractic jibber-jabber; which is taken seriously by his mental midget peers.
    What is EVEN WORSE is that he is a Chaotic Good character.

    This would be a rare glimpse into the mind of convinced Trump-hating liberal; except that recently we have had a bit too many of these glimpses.

    Reich's statement is so heroically moronic, so spectacularly nonsensical, so phenomenally retarded, that I believe he deserves the New York Times Columnist Award.

    Robert Reich is now officially as stupid as David Brooks, Tom Friedman, and Paul Krugman.

    A few years ago I was impressed by a couple of speeches by Reich when he made sensible-seeming comments about reviving the working and middle classes IIRC and railed against the power of lobbyists.

    But his books turned out to be very thin. And now Trump’s mysterious ability to draw out the idiot in leftists has fully exposed him.

    In truth Trump’s actions have been rather mild (compared say what might be coming down the pike) yet he has stripped progressives of their ability to shield their radical agendas behind ‘reasonable’ talk of fairness, human rights, justice. These mad claims from the likes of Reich are fumbling attempts to recapture the power to obfuscate and confuse us poor rubes.

    Reich is not the only one who cannot come to grips with the new era. George F. Will is now appearing on MSNBC, decrying Trump and what he is doing to the GOP. Will likes the old fashioned Republican Party - staid, polite, proper, and useless.

    Will is pretty much a party of one. Everyone is a disappointment–including Reagan, who he described as a conservative president who did not produce a conservative revolution. As with Reich, reality has a way of interfering with Will’s presumptions about how life should play out.

    Guys like Reich, David Frum, Michael Moore, etc seem to be inside a bubble. We can hear them but they can't hear us. They see the same world events around them as we do, they just get a warped view of them and we can't correct them. They really need to be sidelined from the conversation until they sort out this glitch of theirs. If they can't join the rest of us in the world of the real then they have to be ignored. I'm going to pretend this is some sort of technical malfunction on their side and not a case of them being mendacious pricks.

    Mendacious pricks works for me. Which means ignore them as laughable creatures. In the business world, they are the money-losing division that needs to be jettisoned–it can’t be turned-around because it has no value-added features. They now propose telling the rest of us what’s wrong with the present moment after being wrong about what and how we got here. A record of which any sentient being would be ashamed. They are media creatures that provide entertainment to some–like the monkey and the organ grinder.

The detainee may well have made a grab for the pistol. The homeowner probably is a lefty; his holster was on his left appendix side and it looks like the butt is pointed left.

    Just before he unholstered there were two guys fighting with him and hitting him for control of the suspect, and a couple more flanking him. The guy wearing a maroon hoodie in the foreground flanks and reaches behind his back at the belt line like he's drawing a weapon. A "warning shot" is a really bad idea, so the cop will likely claim either an attempted grab for the weapon or a ND while struggling.

    Trump should immediately declare that all young Swedish women who because of immigration no longer feel that Sweden is a “safe space” for them, are eligible for refugee status in the US.

    Troll these bastards. Mock these bastards. Make fun of these bastards. It’s not enough to state the intellectual arguments. We nationalists have those hands down–though unfortunately we don’t have politicians (inc. Trump) stating them very well–but we’re still losing.
