  2. OT: President Trump had better apologize to Marco Rubio now. Donny just had to stop in the middle of a speech on national television, find and open a bottle of water under his podium, and take a drink. His mouth was dry and he was having trouble getting words out. Sad.

    The cool thing for the president to do now would be to tweet an apology to Marco and make self-deprecating fun of himself. One doubts that will happen.

    Did he make extremely awkward eye contact with the camera or anyone in his audience? If not then he has nothing to apologize for.
    , @Guy de Champlagne
    I think he should stop continually stabbing his supporters in the back by doing nothing but fail to enact Paul Ryan's policies not apologize and demonstrate some new, more mature understanding of the relationship between public speaking and thirst. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

  5. And next it emerged that up to 2,000 threats were the work of an energetic young Jewish man in Israel with dual Israeli-American citizenship, Michael Ron David Kadar.

    People talk a lot about Jewish IQ, but they rarely talk about the frenetic energy many Jews have. I suspect, though, that that has at least as much to do with their success as IQ. And the related fact that their self-confidence tends to be crazy high. Very few opportunities for success are lost.

    I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we’ve heard about of late. Perhaps even the tendency toward the kink of exhibitionism is related?

    Is this all environment or genes? Here too I’d guess genes play a big role. Select too hard for certain traits, like success, and some strange things are likely to pop out at the top.

    They're well represented among *famous* sexual predators because, I suspect, they're well represented among the famous. That's where I'd put my money anyway.

    Most routine cases of sexual harassment, statutory rape, etc. (i.e., the kind that only get mentioned in the local news) have perps who are (very roughly) proportional to their share of the population. I don't notice a large % of Jews among them, unless Jews are just better at getting away with it.

    “Jews are ethnically hyperactive and religiously indolent.”

    I prefer religious Jews who are ethnically indolent.

    I think Kevin MacDonald wrote about personality traits of Jews related to anxiety and intensity.

  7. Why would so many of the nationally publicized “hate crimes” turn out to be fake?

    Precisely because they are so over-the-top that they come to national attention. They are typically in universities, or other “esteemed” institutions, where they would seem a priori to be especially against the culture and outrageous. They also typically use exactly the sort of language and provocation which racists are, supposedly, wont to use, in the minds of the left. They are, therefore, perfect for The Agenda.

    But of course it’s all a figment of the fevered imaginations of the left — a figment faithfully followed by the hoaxers.

    One can almost always tell in advance if a “hate crime” is a hoax by the perfection of its construction. It will use exactly the words The Narrative demands, and will involve exactly the actions The Narrative expects (“He ripped off my hijab!!”). Hate hoaxers lack the brains for subtlety.

    Yes. Contrast with a real hate crime: the woman pushed his son and said, "Come on!" Real haters use phrases like "come on," not stereotypical epithets!

    BTW, Steve, another good article. One typo:

    the cops come down on them like a ton of bricks, so the stories don’t because national causes célèbres.
     
    , @Rod1963
    Spot on. I might add these hoaxes also part of a low intensity war against whites aided and abetted by the MSM.

    In addition the Left in general is much more prone to outright violence and intimidation than those on the right. The Left in general just attracts dangerously unbalanced people. This is why the Left has anti-fa and others whose sole mission is to physically hurt people whom they don't like. Just like the church shooter in Texas who last two facebook posts were in support of Anti-fa.

    Others just like to protest and scream like some pod person. Triggly Puff comes to mind as do most feminists and the myriad of sexual deviants that the Left attracts.

    Hate crimes are reported nationally. When they turn out to be hoaxes it can be found in local media only.

    Man admits lying in Schenectady swastika case

    https://dailygazette.com/article/2017/09/04/man-admits-lying-in-schenectady-swastika-case

    “A falsely reported hate crime is, in one sense, as bad as a real crime,” Schenectady County District Attorney Robert Carney said in a prepared statement. “It stigmatizes a group of people, increases fear and tensions and could encourage real copycat crimes.

    “Mr. King put our community on edge in perpetrating this hoax, and we hope that this disposition will provide him some needed supervision and assistance,” Carney said.

    Was Mr. King Jewish?

    “He’s alleging he suffered those injuries as a result of a physical contact with police officers,” said Simone, who said she did not inquire more about the accusations. When asked in the interview about reports that King is Jewish, Simone said he is.

    or

    Jewish leaders in Schenectady say that King, who was interviewed by the local media in front of his defaced home wearing a kippah, is not Jewish. He tried to convert several times but was rejected by at least two congregations

    And David Berkowitz was adopted.

    @SteveSailer
    “America has tens of thousands of social scientists. Yet as far as I can tell, not one has ever studied quantitatively what percentage of nationally publicized “hate incidents” turn out to be misleadingly fallacious.”

    This is one of the simple things that the Dissident Right/Alt Right should be able to accomplish. Create a website to document hate hoaxes in an online archive.

    -Start a Hatreon for the site. The figures/sites I mention in the bottom could be drawn on for the project of getting funding and publicity. The purpose is to document 3 items a) Each specific hate hoax explain in a paragraph or two max b)the perpetrators c) links to the national media publications validating it as well as the subsequent narrative collapse stories.
    Only cases with national media stories would apply.

    -The money raised would pay for the website and a moderator as well as a possible researcher doing part time work. The hired researcher can look past at stories that can be found from the Sailer archives, Amren, Colin Flaherty,etc. Most of the suggestions will come from the internet crowd who can submit stories on the site fitting the 3 items formula.

    -A section for 2 types of analysis. a) quantitative analysis of the sort Sailer has called for b)analysis of how hate hoaxes work socially and culturally. Just need Sailer’s articles here.
    Don’t need to find new talent to curate crowd sourced material. Hire existing people alt sphere like James Fulford to do research for example. This will be part time work in any event.

    -Promoting the concept
    Get these people involved.
    Alt-Light: Cern0/Posobiec+ Gateway pundit+Lauren Southern+Gavin Mcinnes+Infowars
    Dissident/Alt Right: Vdare(Brimelow)+Amren(Taylor)+Altright.com(Spencer)+etc.

    In order for the concept to spread you need the great propagandists of the alternative media. The great twitter propagandists from both the Alt-Light+Right are crucial since they attack journalists as well as provide stories/angles for the softer bellies Conservatism Inc. that are open to the alternative sphere. Thinking of Breitbart and Daily Caller in particular. The concept will break through if trolls relentlessly attack journalists with it or if it becomes common phraseology on the Trump right.

    In addition the material could be sent to favoured social scientists or to people who would be willing to use it as a cheatsheet. Like the people at City Journal for example.

    -A Steve Sailer video
    Want a concept to spread among the masses then make it easy a digestible. A 3 min max video explaining the concept based off of a longer more in depth 10-15 min video. The sort of thing people can share with each other. A video based approach detailing the hate hoaxes per month or taking egregious ones in particular, could be every effective. They can be advertised with Facebook Ads and take a life of their own.

    All of these things could be done without a lot money or effort. It’s unfortunate that leadership in alt-sphere is too weak. Instead it relies on more decentralized trolling for its big publicity successes like the brilliant “It’s okay to be white”. The reaction to the Damore scandal of exporting memes from the digital world to physical one is the way forward. It is the intermediate step before you go completely public.

    This is the sampling problem issue. Jews are only 2%. The deeds are actually very infrequent. Even if Jews committed them twice as often you would not see it. They would be only 4% of all perpetrators. Not all perpetrators are reported in media. There is nothing to notice, so you don't. But in Hollywood if, say, Jews are 50% and if they are twice as likely to commit the deed, the Jewish perpetrators would constitute 66% of all perpetrators.
    , @candid_observer
    It's a little hard to know about the actual representation of Jews in the various areas in which they are now being accused of sexual harassment or assault, so it's hard to know how much they may be over-represented.

    I'd say that I'd be surprised if their proportions as harassers merely match their proportions in the areas. Obviously, though, real research would be required to verify this.

    But one thing that seems to me pretty clear is that the number of these sexual harassers/assaulters who are exhibitionists, and are also Jewish, is amazingly high. In fact, I can't recollect offhand a case in which the harasser/assaulter was an exhibitionist and not Jewish.

    It's hard not to see that trait as a genuine pattern, however it gets explained.

    As I said, I tend to go for genetic explanations, so that would be my bet. I would guess most fetishes are genetic, or pre-natal.

    , @Brutusale
    I don't know if I'd give sexual harassment equal status with statutory rape.

    I'd argue that, for sexual harassment at least, non-elite Jews and minorities are actually under-reported; Jews due to the likelihood of their being in a "power" position over the harassed and minorities due to the probable backlash for accusing a member of one of the protected classes.

    As we see from the whole Hollywood debacle, Jewish guys were indeed constantly using their power over wannabe actresses' aspirations to grope, masturbate, etc.

    These ‘hoaxes’ are acts of hate, libel, and defamation.

    ‘Hate Hoax’ is a misnomer. While the outrage is bogus, the hateful intent is undeniable. Perpetrators of these acts are motivated by hate. Worse, even the institutions are invested in pushing this Anti-White. This is Race Libel.

    After all, globalists and their cuck-dogs cannot continue with the neo-hegeomonic system UNLESS white elites and masses are browbeaten into acquiescence. And the trick is ‘white guilt’, i.e. since whites are burdened with ‘guilt’, they are undeserving of white identity and white interests and therefore must always serve the Bigger Interests of Globalism and Diversity.

    If whites gain a sense of autonomy and withdraw from globo neo-hegemonism, then it’s over for the Glob and their cuck dogs.

    hate crime hoax

    It should not be called a hoax because the hate crime actually happened. People were affected by it. Because it is committed by one of its intended targets it is a false flag hate crime intending to libel and implicate the presumed perpetrators. We should call it rather hate crime provocation and hate crime libel. If there is a punishment for hate crime in cases of hate crime provocations the punishment should be higher and the actual perpetrators should be sued for defamation by organization representing the group of people who were the implicit target of the libel.

    Jews have ADL, now a thoroughly corrupt organization.

    Jews are no longer afraid of classic antisemitism. They are afraid that whites won’t serve Zionist-globalist supremacist imperialism anymore. The new ‘antisemitism’ is refusing to submit to globalist agenda. It’s about being uppity against the Hegemon.

    ADL exists to explicitly speak for Jews and their interests and concerns.

    White people need a similar kind of organization. And such an organization must organize all whites, from top to bottom, to denounce these acts of Anti-White Defamation.

    People talk a lot about Jewish IQ, but they rarely talk about the frenetic energy many Jews have. I suspect, though, that that has at least as much to do with their success as IQ. And the related fact that their self-confidence tends to be crazy high. Very few opportunities for success are lost.

    I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we've heard about of late. Perhaps even the tendency toward the kink of exhibitionism is related?

    Is this all environment or genes? Here too I'd guess genes play a big role. Select too hard for certain traits, like success, and some strange things are likely to pop out at the top.

    the frenetic energy many Jews have

    “Jews are ethnically hyperactive and religiously indolent.”

    I prefer religious Jews who are ethnically indolent.

    I think Kevin MacDonald wrote about personality traits of Jews related to anxiety and intensity.

    Way off topic: Yesterday I found myself with no work to do so I went home. I turned on the television and caught the beginning of a film which fascinated me since a child “Emperor of the North” alt “Emperor of the North Pole”. I saw it on movie of the week sometime before I was ten. It is about a hobo or hobos (Lee Marvin and David Carradine) trying to ride a train in the Depression when the conductor (Earnest Borgnine) was murderously trying to stop them.

    There was a specific scene I remembered ( a spike on a rope trying to knock off the hobos riding under the car). Forty years went by and I am surprised I remembered it accurately.

    But my point: it looked great. I think the colors of big movies then are better than big movies now. There was a lot of technology in big movies (Nine Hours to Rama is Panavision I think, there is Cinescope and of course Technicolor). There was the realism of 70s movies, washed out dark color of 80s movies (Sex, Lies and Videotape) and cgi since Terminator 2. But nothing looks nearly as good as the old film movies.

    Actually, they didn’t send the Claremont lady professor to jail for a hate hoax, but for something way more serious: filing a false police report for vandalism, and then using that false police report to bilk her insurance company out of the cost of repairing her own car.

    Her car would have cost $2-3K to repaint. That $2K fraud earned her a year in prison. On the other hand, shutting her college down for two days of struggle sessions against the blue-eyed devil white man was not punished.

    "I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we’ve heard about of late."

    They're well represented among *famous* sexual predators because, I suspect, they're well represented among the famous. That's where I'd put my money anyway.

    Most routine cases of sexual harassment, statutory rape, etc. (i.e., the kind that only get mentioned in the local news) have perps who are (very roughly) proportional to their share of the population. I don't notice a large % of Jews among them, unless Jews are just better at getting away with it.

    It’s a little hard to know about the actual representation of Jews in the various areas in which they are now being accused of sexual harassment or assault, so it’s hard to know how much they may be over-represented.

    I’d say that I’d be surprised if their proportions as harassers merely match their proportions in the areas. Obviously, though, real research would be required to verify this.

    But one thing that seems to me pretty clear is that the number of these sexual harassers/assaulters who are exhibitionists, and are also Jewish, is amazingly high. In fact, I can’t recollect offhand a case in which the harasser/assaulter was an exhibitionist and not Jewish.

    It’s hard not to see that trait as a genuine pattern, however it gets explained.

    As I said, I tend to go for genetic explanations, so that would be my bet. I would guess most fetishes are genetic, or pre-natal.

    It’s rather that, just as selecting foxes for tameness makes their ears floppy, so selecting men for success makes, well, something hard.

    There's definitely something to be said for that. Part of what makes sex crimes unique is the ubiquity of the sex drive. Evolution has made pretty much everyone love sex, particularly men. Some populations have definitely shown greater selection for self-control, for morality (e.g., an unwillingness to try to force, trick or cajole someone to do something against their will), and against impulsivity.

    Selection for success and "chutzpah" may certainly incline men in such groups to be more willing to try to trick or manipulate women into having sex. I'm not sure I see it in the numbers, though. Jews are 2% of the population overall, but they are a much larger share of the population in a lot of communities. It would be easier in such communities to tell whether Jews are overrepresented among the perps (unless you think they are less likely to be reported or prosecuted).

    That data may be there, but I don't think the current spate of allegations necessarily proves it. Show business is still a very big industry, and the overall number of alleged perps is still a very small fraction of the number of people in Hollywood.

    In general I think that smarter people are usually better not at just not getting caught at doing illegal things, but at actually *not doing* illegal things, because a) they're smart enough to foresee the consequences and b) they are smart enough to get those things in legal ways.

    OT, does anyone have an opinion on the Roy Moore yearbook signature? Any opinions on whether this is the political hack job of the century?


    I was skeptical when the first Wapo article came out. But now there is the yearbook as well as a report that Moore got banned from a mall in Gadsden, none of which Moore is denying.

    I lost just about all respect for the Democrats back when they defended Bill Clinton instead of condemning him. Republicans ought to reject Mooore for the same reasons. If I lived in Alabama, I might not vote for a Democrat, but I sure as hell wouldn’t vote for a man who chased around high school girls when he was in his 30s.

    Moore's team is requesting the yearbook to be turned over to an independent party where further analysis can be performed. The signature looks phony, parts of it appear to be in a newer ink, and his name is signed with 'DA' following it.

    Here is a link to Judge Moore's statement from today on twitter.

    I've been following this for the past two days as twitter users have taken this yearbook apart. It is similar to how the Dan Rather memo was dissected 13 years ago. The problem is that big time conservatives like Rush and Hannity are afraid at this point to challenge the yearbook because if the challenge fails, they will lose their advertisers as they will surely be accused of not believing the 'victim'.

    So right now no one in a prominent position is talking about the yearbook which obviously looks doctored. Even Drudge keeps the same anti-Moore headlines up all day. So most people believe the yearbook is damning evidence against Moore.

    However, this might soon change. Gloria Allred will not release the yearbook unless there is a Senate committee to investigate the matter. She is clearly stalling for the election to take place in 4 weeks. Obviously if the yearbook was not altered, what would she have to lose in letting a neutral party oversee an examination? Moore has basically set himself up to admitting guilt if this yearbook's passages are determined to have been written by him. So if the other side has not altered anything, this would be an effective way to defeat him.

    Interestingly the yearbook really should not even be an issue. Whether or not Moore signed it in 1977 is no indication that he sexually assaulted anyone. But the anti-Moore side appears to have wanted to use the yearbook to prove that Moore knew the girl. However, it appears to be so botched that it might end up making their claim look bogus by casting doubt on the rest of their story.

    Let's say Moore never signed the book. So what, that is not proof that he did or did not assault her. But by doctoring the book and getting caught, they are destroying their case. This is similar to what happened with the Dan Rather memo story. Rather still claims that the memos, though forged, accurately represented what had happened to Bush. But because they forged the memo, the general public logically concluded the whole matter was bogus.

    Moore now needs the conservative talking heads to publicly pressure Gloria Allred to release the yearbook for further examination. Most people think this is an open and shut case. But the more you examine the yearbook, the more it appears to be a fake. Now that Allred has made herself custodian of this book, people can demand from her this book without attacking the so-called victim. This should free up Hannity and Rush to push the matter.

  38. I think this article is a great overall summary, with enough varied examples to interest many people in the truth of the matter.

    About this part:

    Undeterred, the ADL responded to Kadar’s arrest in Israel not by demanding his extradition to the U.S. but by issuing an amusing press release announcing:

    While the details of this crime remain unclear, the impact of this individual’s actions is crystal clear: These were acts of anti-Semitism.

    The italicized quote, from the article, illustrates the ridiculous pretzel-logic-falsehoods that we hear all the time now. It takes a lot of gall to say things like this, as it means one thinks the readers are too stupid to drill down to where the lie is. The problem is, you may need to use knowledge from a rigorous college-level course in logic to explain the lie.

    Analogies do much better, I think: There was this large black A.M.E. church that had a lot of money stolen that was supposed to be for sending many of the black youngsters to summer camp. Well, it was not the racist white KKK guys, as we had thought; it turns out the money was stolen by a member of the congregation who was somewhat of a crack addict. The money was gone though, spent on crack and skanky hookers. The church elders had been completely wrong about what happened, but the impact of this individual’s actions were the same – the poor black young-uns were not able to go to camp. So, it was still an act of racism.

    I mean, WTF? does not begin to to cover this evil lie, masked as stupidity.

    If you assume her goal is not so much advocating for her client as electing the Democrat in the seat, she wants to damage Moore as much as possible without his withdrawing. Dangling the signature-forgery hope spot in front of his die-hard supporters may be enough to keep him in the race for the next four weeks, then the weekend before election day she suddenly agrees to give it to the handwriting expert, who declares it genuine.

    The yearbook is the key. It clearly looks suspicious and Gloria Allred refuses to release it unless conditions that she knows will never be met are agreed to. There are too many suspicious items in that yearbook to be believed without further analysis.

    Like I said above, the yearbook should be irrelevant to whether or not assault was committed. However, the anti-Moore side made it their prominent piece of evidence. So debunking it now takes on a much greater role. This cannot be done unless a neutral party can examine it.

    Additionally the woman claimed she had no further contact with Moore after the 1977 assault. But Moore's team discovered that she appeared in front of his court in 1999, and did not ask that he recuse himself or make any objection to Moore being the presiding judge. This too seems to damage her credibility.

    Thomas Wictor has done a thorough job in analyzing the yearbook from video and photos that are publicly available. You can view his timeline here. Keep in mind he hasn't cleaned up the entries into any nice, presentable executive summary. But if you look through his recent tweets, you will see what he has been up to.

    Keep in mind so far just a handful of twitter users have even taken up this case. The whole world saw the yearbook and assumed it was legit, or were too afraid to question it. Look at what happened to Hannity over the weekend with his advertisers over the Moore issue. No one else wants to risk it. Even Hannity has acted like he has been de-nutted over the past couple of days. He demanded Moore provide proof of his innocence in 24 hours or else.

    Unless the yearbook is examined, Moore can't prove anything. How can you prove something did not happen 40 years ago? You can't. So if they won't release the yearbook, Moore and company have to find a way to show voters that is an admission that the charges are bunk.

    I doubt any insurgent challengers will win in 2018, and I doubt the GOP defeats any Dem incumbents next year, barring black swans.
     
    If the democrats get away with this smear against Moore, here is what happens. Next year in a handful of key Senate and House races, the republican candidate will get accused of sexual assault in mid October and will be forced to withdraw. The democrats will take over the House and Senate.

    That's if Moore backs down. McConnell and company have gone on record to say that Moore should withdraw based upon the charges of sexual misconduct. If Moore obliges then this sets the precedent for next year and beyond.

    I can see it now in my state. Claire McCaskill will be facing certain defeat in the senate race in a state Trump won by 500K votes, which is huugge for Missouri. At the last minute a woman will come forward saying her GOP opponent assaulted her in 1987. The press will go to McConnell and company and remind them of how they said we have to believe the accuser and demand the man drop out.

    Repeat this process in a few key elections and the Senate and maybe the House go back to the democrats.

    They've released October surprises before. But usually there were affairs, tax problems or the like. Now they have discovered that sexual assault claims cannot be challenged. And it looks like the Harvey Weinstein stuff might have been them laying the foundation for this change of view. Obviously under Clinton, victims were never believed. But now that we have cleaned house in Hollywood, sexual assault is to be believed, no questions asked.

    You better fight for Moore right now or expect this to never end.

    The congressional GOP doesn’t want Moore around, for fear that he is Todd Akin 100x. If by some chance Moore can smear the accusers and win, the Senate will expel him.
     
    No, respectfully, I don't agree here. The GOP can act like they don't want another rude, non-PC guy who may put his foot in his mouth, but that's not really their problem with Roy Moore. They like that people think that, however.

    Roy Moore will not be a member of their club, and he doesn't even want to join their club - that's what the GOP has against the man. They DO want a Red-wing member of The Party to win, sure, as they can exercise a little more power, get bigger donations, and get on TV more. However, the R's and D's are just two squads of the same team - people should get that by now. The problem is that Roy Moore won't play the game with them at all. Both squads can't have that. It was bad enough with Trump, as the R's have to at least pretend to play along with him. The upstart Moore will not be tolerated though.

    He has too many core conservative beliefs. How can they work with a guy like that?

    Moore's team is requesting the yearbook to be turned over to an independent party where further analysis can be performed. The signature looks phony, parts of it appear to be in a newer ink, and his name is signed with 'DA' following it.

    Here is a link to Judge Moore's statement from today on twitter.

    I've been following this for the past two days as twitter users have taken this yearbook apart. It is similar to how the Dan Rather memo was dissected 13 years ago. The problem is that big time conservatives like Rush and Hannity are afraid at this point to challenge the yearbook because if the challenge fails, they will lose their advertisers as they will surely be accused of not believing the 'victim'.

    So right now no one in a prominent position is talking about the yearbook which obviously looks doctored. Even Drudge keeps the same anti-Moore headlines up all day. So most people believe the yearbook is damning evidence against Moore.

    However, this might soon change. Gloria Allred will not release the yearbook unless there is a Senate committee to investigate the matter. She is clearly stalling for the election to take place in 4 weeks. Obviously if the yearbook was not altered, what would she have to lose in letting a neutral party oversee an examination? Moore has basically set himself up to admitting guilt if this yearbook's passages are determined to have been written by him. So if the other side has not altered anything, this would be an effective way to defeat him.

    Interestingly the yearbook really should not even be an issue. Whether or not Moore signed it in 1977 is no indication that he sexually assaulted anyone. But the anti-Moore side appears to have wanted to use the yearbook to prove that Moore knew the girl. However, it appears to be so botched that it might end up making their claim look bogus by casting doubt on the rest of their story.

    Let's say Moore never signed the book. So what, that is not proof that he did or did not assault her. But by doctoring the book and getting caught, they are destroying their case. This is similar to what happened with the Dan Rather memo story. Rather still claims that the memos, though forged, accurately represented what had happened to Bush. But because they forged the memo, the general public logically concluded the whole matter was bogus.

    Moore now needs the conservative talking heads to publicly pressure Gloria Allred to release the yearbook for further examination. Most people think this is an open and shut case. But the more you examine the yearbook, the more it appears to be a fake. Now that Allred has made herself custodian of this book, people can demand from her this book without attacking the so-called victim. This should free up Hannity and Rush to push the matter.

    Obviously if the yearbook was not altered, what would she have to lose in letting a neutral party oversee an examination?

    If you assume her goal is not so much advocating for her client as electing the Democrat in the seat, she wants to damage Moore as much as possible without his withdrawing. Dangling the signature-forgery hope spot in front of his die-hard supporters may be enough to keep him in the race for the next four weeks, then the weekend before election day she suddenly agrees to give it to the handwriting expert, who declares it genuine.

    First, his voters are in Alabama. The rest of the nation does not matter. So I think a lot of those folks will support him if Allred snowballs on releasing the yearbook.

    Second, his request today was for an independent party to hold the book and allow representatives of both camps to view and examine the book's writing. If Allred tried to have her own expert authenticate it, Alabama voters would probably not buy that.

    Third, another woman came out today and said Moore grabbed her butt in 1992 when her mother was in the same room. The more women who come out now, the less likely this affair will be believed. In fact I hope 1000 women come forward. It is believable that 1 woman who was assaulted 40 years ago could keep silent. But 10, 20 or more ladies will not keep quiet for 40 years. Moore has been too popular and controversial in Alabama, hated by both establishments, for this stuff not to have been brought up years ago.

    So watch how the anti-Moore forces will keep marching woman after woman over the next four weeks until he withdraws. Note that they want him to withdraw. Why?

    If the media and democrats are so anxious to take this seat, wouldn't they want Moore to stay in the race? It means they would win. But I think they doubt this. That is why they are demanding he withdraw.

    Think about Todd Akin running against Clair McCaskill for Missouri Senate seat in 2012. Akin made that dumb remark about abortion. Did the media demand he withdraw? No. Why not? Because they knew Akin was cooked and they wanted him to remain.

    But now with Moore they want him to withdraw. I think they know these allegations are bogus. Why else would they show up 33 days before the election when it was too late to even take his name off the ballot? After all the political battles he has been through, they finally show 33 days before a senate race.

    Yes, it would be nice for him to withdraw given that you can't even remove his name from the ballot. The media, the democrats and even the RINO cucks want the election to be handed to the democrats.

    This whole thing just looks too manufactured. Like I said, I hope a dozen more women come forward. Recall what happened with Trump. After so many women came forward, the public just tuned it out. It looked like manufactured controversy. I vaguely remember the lady who said Trump groped her on a trans-Atlantic flight. But every accuser after that is totally gone from my memory.

    "Handwriting analysis," I'll add, is pretty much junk science; the only forensic tests that should be considered potentially positive or dispositive are testing whether the chemical compounds in the ink and paper are consistent with the document's purported age and examining the writing for signs of tracing or copying.

    The GOP is in a no-win situation. Moore is almost certain to lose, unless he can prove that all accusations are false. I'm not sure how he can do that.

    It does not appear that Moore can be removed from the ballot, and I doubt he would quit even if publicly ordered to to so by Trump and all elected AL Republicans.

    If the GOP delays the election, they will be called un-democratic. The Dems are still sore about losing the chance to squeeze GOP moderates in the Senate into confirming Garland. (The 2002 Toricelli NJ precedent, and the current precedent of Menendez will be ignored)*

    The congressional GOP doesn't want Moore around, for fear that he is Todd Akin 100x. If by some chance Moore can smear the accusers and win, the Senate will expel him. They further don't want him around because you can't buy a zealot.

    The most likely scenario is that the GOP will fall on its sword, the Democrats will steal the seat, and the GOP will be blamed for enabling sexual predators in their own ranks. True or not, the allegations against Roy Moore confirm the feminist narrative. The cucks will demand that the party nominate more women and become explicitly feminist. I doubt any insurgent challengers will win in 2018, and I doubt the GOP defeats any Dem incumbents next year, barring black swans.

    *Unfairness is a part of politics in our time, its not sportsmanship, its bloodsport. Any complaining we do about this apparent double standard, will be seen as whining by the left. Stoicism is the only path that works here.

    . Moore is almost certain to lose, unless he can prove that all accusations are false. I’m not sure how he can do that.

    The yearbook is the key. It clearly looks suspicious and Gloria Allred refuses to release it unless conditions that she knows will never be met are agreed to. There are too many suspicious items in that yearbook to be believed without further analysis.

    Like I said above, the yearbook should be irrelevant to whether or not assault was committed. However, the anti-Moore side made it their prominent piece of evidence. So debunking it now takes on a much greater role. This cannot be done unless a neutral party can examine it.

    Additionally the woman claimed she had no further contact with Moore after the 1977 assault. But Moore’s team discovered that she appeared in front of his court in 1999, and did not ask that he recuse himself or make any objection to Moore being the presiding judge. This too seems to damage her credibility.

    Thomas Wictor has done a thorough job in analyzing the yearbook from video and photos that are publicly available. You can view his timeline here. Keep in mind he hasn’t cleaned up the entries into any nice, presentable executive summary. But if you look through his recent tweets, you will see what he has been up to.

    Keep in mind so far just a handful of twitter users have even taken up this case. The whole world saw the yearbook and assumed it was legit, or were too afraid to question it.

    One accuser apparently mentions an incident in 1991, which was after Moore was married. That could be the kill shot if they can verify it.

    The left has an image of Moore that he's a character straight out of the Handmaiden's Tale. It will be hard to shake it off, because BezosBlog has confirmed the stereotype.

    If Allred is a liar and has committed fraud, she could face disbarrment. But she's old and has enough money to not care about the consequences.

    Smearing one accuser won't work, all of the accusers must be smeared successfully. And Moore will need proof of "actual malice" by BezosBlog that would meet the (NYT v Sullivan) standard.

    The left is making hay out of the fact that Trump hasn't sued his accusers for libel (I doubt the President has time to be deposed, and it appears petty). They have a convincing arguement that Trump is afraid of the discovery process.

    Leftists are fired up, thinking that a LTG. Mike Flynn indictment is around the corner, and that more sexual assault allegations will emerge to force Trump into resigning. They've even decided to throw Bill Clinton's corpse under the bus.
    , @res
    Why can't Moore file a libel suit and turn the yearbook into evidence? This does not address the election, but if it is fake a libel judgment might make a nice consolation if he loses. And set a precedent for dealing with things like this in the future perhaps.

    I will be surprised if it ends anytime soon.

    I don't have any confidence in Roy Moore or Steve Bannon.

    I have sincere doubts that the country will persist after 2020. Should Trump win, California (Hawaii) will secede. The wet side of Cascadia and the Northeast are also possible candidates, unless by some miracle Trump wins Oregon and both Maine and New Hampshire.

    Should the Democrats win, an amnesty is certain, and the right-wing states should immediately secede, though it is unlikely to happen unless the cucks are purged. If political options are blocked or fail, armed insurrection is likely. A Dem supermajority will eagerly pass a gun confiscation bill as soon as they can get another MK ULTRA mass killing that exceeds the previous record.

    Yes. If this "works" than the GOPe has basically ceded control of its candidates to WaPo and the Left (but I repeat myself). I'm sure they want that, though,

    The idea that Roy Moore (a name I remember from eight fucking grade in MD ffs when he came up in national papers for the Ten Commandments imbroglio) somehow only now has women willing to come forward is a farce, and why he is up 6 points still. The NRNC poll showing him "behind 12 points" is LAWL for how terrible the metrics were.

    This is bigger than Dem v Repub, this is Nationalists v Globalist level warfare here.

Allred pushes these political hit jobs(she only attacks conservatives in this manner) because someone is paying her.

    This is same crap used against Bill Cosby. The women probably slept with him in return for opening the doors of Hollywood to them. When their careers never took off and they got old, they figured they could shake down a frail Bill Cosby for some retirement money.

    It applies to all those women Weinstein messed with as well. They put up with it like a whore would for the $$$ they would make down the road. If they really didn't want to put up with him, they would have kicked the bloated pervert in the nuts and walked out of the room. They didn't, they consented.

    I think you are correct. And they almost made it payoff. If you recall Bush was up in the polls the final week. Heading into the Friday prior to Tuesday's election, Bush announced he was basically shutting his campaign down. He was heading to Texas to relax and wait for Tuesday.

    Gore meanwhile was scheduled to do a mad dash last ditch campaign through Florida culminating on Miami beach at midnight before the election.

    On Friday the Bush story was released. Bush was already in shut down mode and did not respond well. Gore was already geared up for his final hail-Mary push. The result was he closed the gap and caused Florida to be the mess that wasn't decided until December. Other states' results tightened too.

    I think the dems probably released the info too late. They needed a few more days for it to percolate.

    Timing is everything. I think the Access Hollywood tape was released too early. They released it in early October on a Friday prior to the 2nd debate. Trump then counter attacked by pummeling Bill Clinton on his sex scandals. He also had another debate ahead of him and four weeks to fight it. Additionally the democrats marched too many women to count in front of the cameras. Had they released that tape a week out, he would have lost.

    I think WaPo ran this Roy Moore story with too much time. Sure it was too late to replace Moore on the ballot, but they still gave him 4 weeks to get his bearings and go on the offensive. And now the yearbook from a woman they did not even need might end up saving him.

    I think you should dump your dirt about 7 to 10 days out. You need the voters to see it, but you can't give the guy too much time to launch a counter attack.

    I think this article is a great overall summary, with enough varied examples to interest many people in the truth of the matter.

    About this part:

    Undeterred, the ADL responded to Kadar’s arrest in Israel not by demanding his extradition to the U.S. but by issuing an amusing press release announcing:

    While the details of this crime remain unclear, the impact of this individual’s actions is crystal clear: These were acts of anti-Semitism.
     

     
    The italicized quote, from the article, illustrates the ridiculous pretzel-logic-falsehoods that we hear all the time now. It takes a lot of gall to say things like this, as it means one thinks the readers are too stupid to drill down to where the lie is. The problem is, you may need to use knowledge from a rigorous college-level course in logic to explain the lie.

    Analogies do much better, I think: There was this large black A.M.E. church that had a lot of money stolen that was supposed to be for sending many of the black youngsters to summer camp. Well, it was not the racist white KKK guys, as we had thought; it turns out the money was stolen by a member of the congregation who was somewhat of a crack addict. The money was gone though, spent on crack and skanky hookers. The church elders had been completely wrong about what happened, but the impact of this individual's actions were the same - the poor black young-uns were not able to go to camp. So, it was still an act of racism.

    I mean, WTF? does not begin to to cover this evil lie, masked as stupidity.

    The problem is, you may need to use knowledge from a rigorous college-level course in logic to explain the lie.

    Please do so for this case.

    Smearing one accuser won’t work, all of the accusers must be smeared successfully. And Moore will need proof of “actual malice” by BezosBlog that would meet the (NYT v Sullivan) standard.

    He needs to prove himself to the people of Alabama. He was leading in the polls before this mess. If he can destroy the case against him by the lady with the yearbook, it will probably be enough to convince his erstwhile supporters that the whole thing is a sham.

    The best thing that the democrats could have done is put out the first woman all by herself. But the WaPo added some other girls who said they dated Moore as teenagers, at the age of consent with some even saying their parents approved. This didn’t need to be added. They should have left it at the first woman who claims she was assault at age 14. How can you disprove something like this? You can’t after 38 years.

    I know they added the other girls to show there was a pattern to Moore. They even have some woman who worked with him who said it was an open secret that he dated teenagers. Well if it was an open secret why has no one heard about it until 33 days prior to a Senate election? Moore was a lightening rod with the Ten Commandments stuff. You would have thought if his dating of teenagers was an open secret, he would have been torpedoed years ago.

    So if he can refute this one case, I think he gets his supporters back. The funny thing is that they messed up by introducing the yearbook. In cold cases from 20 or 40 years ago, there is really no way you can prove your innocence if it is a she said/he said case. But by introducing a botched document you give Moore something to refute.

    I doubt any insurgent challengers will win in 2018, and I doubt the GOP defeats any Dem incumbents next year, barring black swans.
     
    If the democrats get away with this smear against Moore, here is what happens. Next year in a handful of key Senate and House races, the republican candidate will get accused of sexual assault in mid October and will be forced to withdraw. The democrats will take over the House and Senate.

    That's if Moore backs down. McConnell and company have gone on record to say that Moore should withdraw based upon the charges of sexual misconduct. If Moore obliges then this sets the precedent for next year and beyond.

    I can see it now in my state. Claire McCaskill will be facing certain defeat in the senate race in a state Trump won by 500K votes, which is huugge for Missouri. At the last minute a woman will come forward saying her GOP opponent assaulted her in 1987. The press will go to McConnell and company and remind them of how they said we have to believe the accuser and demand the man drop out.

    Repeat this process in a few key elections and the Senate and maybe the House go back to the democrats.

    They've released October surprises before. But usually there were affairs, tax problems or the like. Now they have discovered that sexual assault claims cannot be challenged. And it looks like the Harvey Weinstein stuff might have been them laying the foundation for this change of view. Obviously under Clinton, victims were never believed. But now that we have cleaned house in Hollywood, sexual assault is to be believed, no questions asked.

    You better fight for Moore right now or expect this to never end.

    I will be surprised if it ends anytime soon.

    I don’t have any confidence in Roy Moore or Steve Bannon.

    I have sincere doubts that the country will persist after 2020. Should Trump win, California (Hawaii) will secede. The wet side of Cascadia and the Northeast are also possible candidates, unless by some miracle Trump wins Oregon and both Maine and New Hampshire.

    Should the Democrats win, an amnesty is certain, and the right-wing states should immediately secede, though it is unlikely to happen unless the cucks are purged. If political options are blocked or fail, armed insurrection is likely. A Dem supermajority will eagerly pass a gun confiscation bill as soon as they can get another MK ULTRA mass killing that exceeds the previous record.

    In 1992, the Gennifer Flowers story broke almost a month before the New Hampshire primary. (The primary was on Feb. 18. The story broke on Jan. 23. The famous "pain in my marriage" interview on 60 Minutes aired on Jan. 26 - Super Bowl Sunday.)

    After a grueling campaign, Clinton finished a strong second to Paul Tsongas - good enough to keep his hopes alive.

    Later that year, on the day before Halloween - the Friday before the election - the Iran-contra special prosecutor dropped a little October surprise of his own in his indictment of Caspar Weinberger. There's little evidence that it affected the outcome either way.

    Ironically, Iran-contra was one of the issues that helped George Bush win the New Hampshire primary in 1988. CBS anchor Dan Rather tried to ambush Bush in a live TV interview, but the effort backfired. Bush's combative response to Rather's questions helped him shed his image as a patrician wimp. (That interview, incidentally, was conducted on Jan. 25; the primary was on Feb. 16.)

    In 2008, Hillary famously lost Iowa to Barack Obama. That election was held on Jan. 3, a Thursday; the New Hampshire primary was scheduled for the next Tuesday. Over the weekend, Clinton's campaign totally unraveled and she was reduced to a weeping wreck of a former first lady. But there was light at the end of the tunnel - her onslaught of (crocodile*) tears enabled her to surf to victory, keeping her hopes alive for months to come.

    The link says Wilcox wrote that paper in 1994, it has almost certainly gotten worse since then. If it was at 85% over twenty years ago, I would be surprised if it is below 95% now. As he also points out, most of the incidents are rather mild, someone gets called a name, etc. Very rarely is physical violence or the threat of physical violence involved.

    Why would so many of the nationally publicized "hate crimes" turn out to be fake?

    Precisely because they are so over-the-top that they come to national attention. They are typically in universities, or other "esteemed" institutions, where they would seem a priori to be especially against the culture and outrageous. They also typically use exactly the sort of language and provocation which racists are, supposedly, wont to use, in the minds of the left. They are, therefore, perfect for The Agenda.

    But of course it's all a figment of the fevered imaginations of the left -- a figment faithfully followed by the hoaxers.

    One can almost always tell in advance if a "hate crime" is a hoax by the perfection of its construction. It will use exactly the words The Narrative demands, and will involve exactly the actions The Narrative expects ("He ripped off my hijab!!"). Hate hoaxers lack the brains for subtlety.

    Spot on. I might add these hoaxes also part of a low intensity war against whites aided and abetted by the MSM.

    In addition the Left in general is much more prone to outright violence and intimidation than those on the right. The Left in general just attracts dangerously unbalanced people. This is why the Left has anti-fa and others whose sole mission is to physically hurt people whom they don’t like. Just like the church shooter in Texas who last two facebook posts were in support of Anti-fa.

    Others just like to protest and scream like some pod person. Triggly Puff comes to mind as do most feminists and the myriad of sexual deviants that the Left attracts.

    Steve,

    Phillip Zimbardo the famous Stanford psychologist wrote a book many years ago on the emotions and also another book on shyness.

    In one of these books it he cited a study which showed that Jews had the lowest incidence of shyness of any ethnic group tested in the USA.

    He suggested that this lower incidence of shyness was due to the Jewish cultural tradition of lauding and encouraging “chutzpah.”

    Personally, I have met some shy Jews, but also quite a few who were not so shy.

    One accuser apparently mentions an incident in 1991, which was after Moore was married. That could be the kill shot if they can verify it.

    The left has an image of Moore that he's a character straight out of the Handmaiden's Tale. It will be hard to shake it off, because BezosBlog has confirmed the stereotype.

    If Allred is a liar and has committed fraud, she could face disbarrment. But she's old and has enough money to not care about the consequences.

    Smearing one accuser won't work, all of the accusers must be smeared successfully. And Moore will need proof of "actual malice" by BezosBlog that would meet the (NYT v Sullivan) standard.

    The left is making hay out of the fact that Trump hasn't sued his accusers for libel (I doubt the President has time to be deposed, and it appears petty). They have a convincing arguement that Trump is afraid of the discovery process.

    Leftists are fired up, thinking that a LTG. Mike Flynn indictment is around the corner, and that more sexual assault allegations will emerge to force Trump into resigning. They've even decided to throw Bill Clinton's corpse under the bus.

    Allred is a professional extortionist as is her daughter is(who served as a bag woman for Weinstein to shut other women up).

    As for those Trump accusers, all of them appear to be frauds. If they had a case, they would have taken it to civil court a long time ago. They didn’t, they have no case against him. Allred pushes these political hit jobs(she only attacks conservatives in this manner) because someone is paying her.

    This is same crap used against Bill Cosby. The women probably slept with him in return for opening the doors of Hollywood to them. When their careers never took off and they got old, they figured they could shake down a frail Bill Cosby for some retirement money.

    It applies to all those women Weinstein messed with as well. They put up with it like a whore would for the $$$ they would make down the road. If they really didn’t want to put up with him, they would have kicked the bloated pervert in the nuts and walked out of the room. They didn’t, they consented.

    The problem is, you may need to use knowledge from a rigorous college-level course in logic to explain the lie.

    Please do so for this case.

    I never took any college-level logic course, Opinionator (not trying to be a smart-ass here; I just didn’t). Maybe someone else on here can lay out the false premises and latin or greek terms to diagram this stupidity.

    And next it emerged that up to 2,000 threats were the work of an energetic young Jewish man in Israel with dual Israeli-American citizenship, Michael Ron David Kadar.
     
    People talk a lot about Jewish IQ, but they rarely talk about the frenetic energy many Jews have. I suspect, though, that that has at least as much to do with their success as IQ. And the related fact that their self-confidence tends to be crazy high. Very few opportunities for success are lost.

    I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we've heard about of late. Perhaps even the tendency toward the kink of exhibitionism is related?

    Is this all environment or genes? Here too I'd guess genes play a big role. Select too hard for certain traits, like success, and some strange things are likely to pop out at the top.

    Yup – clever powerful men who promulgate their genes by exploiting mating opportunities will tend to have more descendants than those shrinking violets who don’t.

    It’s not hard to see how a genetic predisposition gets selected for.

    “different hoax for different folks”?- love it! It’s catchy, conveys an important truth, is sing-songy, non-threatening, and most of all fun! Basically the jelly to “it’s OK to be white”’s peanut butter.

    BTW- Steve is truly the Jimmy Page of alt-right sloganeering, able to toss off like so much dandruff the sort of crunchy, essential aphorisms most other writers would die for that he’s probably misplaced more than a few. Given the topic of this essay I’m amazed Steve didn’t trot out some variation of this little fireball- “unfortunately in today’s America the demand for white racism far exceeds its supply.”

    Haha, the Adam Smith version, huh? I agree that it was a great title. That always helps in getting more people to read. I don’t understand your Jimmy Page reference. Do you mean his guitar riffs were just catchy as hell, like iSteve’s title?

    This is why you boomers were unable to conserve women’s bathrooms and the Left was on the road to legalized pederastry until Donald Trump started tweeting a cartoon frog: because you’re eager and willing to cede moral authority to a Left that knows power is the only thing that matters.

    FYI yet again we see the same mentality around here that we saw during the Pres Election: blackpiller eeyores taking the lockstep braying of the coastal journos as reality. Sad!

    The GOP is in a no-win situation. Moore is almost certain to lose, unless he can prove that all accusations are false. I'm not sure how he can do that.

    It does not appear that Moore can be removed from the ballot, and I doubt he would quit even if publicly ordered to to so by Trump and all elected AL Republicans.

    If the GOP delays the election, they will be called un-democratic. The Dems are still sore about losing the chance to squeeze GOP moderates in the Senate into confirming Garland. (The 2002 Toricelli NJ precedent, and the current precedent of Menendez will be ignored)*

    The congressional GOP doesn't want Moore around, for fear that he is Todd Akin 100x. If by some chance Moore can smear the accusers and win, the Senate will expel him. They further don't want him around because you can't buy a zealot.

    The most likely scenario is that the GOP will fall on its sword, the Democrats will steal the seat, and the GOP will be blamed for enabling sexual predators in their own ranks. True or not, the allegations against Roy Moore confirm the feminist narrative. The cucks will demand that the party nominate more women and become explicitly feminist. I doubt any insurgent challengers will win in 2018, and I doubt the GOP defeats any Dem incumbents next year, barring black swans.

    *Unfairness is a part of politics in our time, its not sportsmanship, its bloodsport. Any complaining we do about this apparent double standard, will be seen as whining by the left. Stoicism is the only path that works here.

    The congressional GOP doesn’t want Moore around, for fear that he is Todd Akin 100x. If by some chance Moore can smear the accusers and win, the Senate will expel him.

    No, respectfully, I don’t agree here. The GOP can act like they don’t want another rude, non-PC guy who may put his foot in his mouth, but that’s not really their problem with Roy Moore. They like that people think that, however.

    Roy Moore will not be a member of their club, and he doesn’t even want to join their club – that’s what the GOP has against the man. They DO want a Red-wing member of The Party to win, sure, as they can exercise a little more power, get bigger donations, and get on TV more. However, the R’s and D’s are just two squads of the same team – people should get that by now. The problem is that Roy Moore won’t play the game with them at all. Both squads can’t have that. It was bad enough with Trump, as the R’s have to at least pretend to play along with him. The upstart Moore will not be tolerated though.

    He has too many core conservative beliefs. How can they work with a guy like that?

    One accuser apparently mentions an incident in 1991, which was after Moore was married. That could be the kill shot if they can verify it.

    The left has an image of Moore that he's a character straight out of the Handmaiden's Tale. It will be hard to shake it off, because BezosBlog has confirmed the stereotype.

    If Allred is a liar and has committed fraud, she could face disbarrment. But she's old and has enough money to not care about the consequences.

    Smearing one accuser won't work, all of the accusers must be smeared successfully. And Moore will need proof of "actual malice" by BezosBlog that would meet the (NYT v Sullivan) standard.

    The left is making hay out of the fact that Trump hasn't sued his accusers for libel (I doubt the President has time to be deposed, and it appears petty). They have a convincing arguement that Trump is afraid of the discovery process.

    Leftists are fired up, thinking that a LTG. Mike Flynn indictment is around the corner, and that more sexual assault allegations will emerge to force Trump into resigning. They've even decided to throw Bill Clinton's corpse under the bus.

    BTW, I wrote “respectfully”, as I agree with most of the rest of your and anonymous’ writing on the candidate Roy Moore brewhaha. Don’t worry about derailing the thread too much. I mean, if Steve’s not gonna put up a short post or an open thread on this, WTF are we supposed to do, right? ;-}

    My point isn't that Jews might have been selected for exhibitionism.

    It's rather that, just as selecting foxes for tameness makes their ears floppy, so selecting men for success makes, well, something hard.

    It’s rather that, just as selecting foxes for tameness makes their ears floppy, so selecting men for success makes, well, something hard.

    There’s definitely something to be said for that. Part of what makes sex crimes unique is the ubiquity of the sex drive. Evolution has made pretty much everyone love sex, particularly men. Some populations have definitely shown greater selection for self-control, for morality (e.g., an unwillingness to try to force, trick or cajole someone to do something against their will), and against impulsivity.

    Selection for success and “chutzpah” may certainly incline men in such groups to be more willing to try to trick or manipulate women into having sex. I’m not sure I see it in the numbers, though. Jews are 2% of the population overall, but they are a much larger share of the population in a lot of communities. It would be easier in such communities to tell whether Jews are overrepresented among the perps (unless you think they are less likely to be reported or prosecuted).

    That data may be there, but I don’t think the current spate of allegations necessarily proves it. Show business is still a very big industry, and the overall number of alleged perps is still a very small fraction of the number of people in Hollywood.

    In general I think that smarter people are usually better not at just not getting caught at doing illegal things, but at actually *not doing* illegal things, because a) they’re smart enough to foresee the consequences and b) they are smart enough to get those things in legal ways.

    What was Spy magazine's summary of James Toback's good points in 1989:

    "He's not shy."

    Not shyness is a useful trait in a lot of fields.

    Shyness is such an overwhelmingly negative trait for a male to possess that I have to wonder if it’s not unlike the male nipple in terms of selection process. Of course, there’s also the matter that reflexive aggression could get you killed or at least ostracized in the not too distant past.

    "America has tens of thousands of social scientists. Yet as far as I can tell, not one has ever studied quantitatively what percentage of nationally publicized “hate incidents” turn out to be misleadingly fallacious."

    This is one of the simple things that the Dissident Right/Alt Right should be able to accomplish. Create a website to document hate hoaxes in an online archive.

    -Start a Hatreon for the site. The figures/sites I mention in the bottom could be drawn on for the project of getting funding and publicity. The purpose is to document 3 items a) Each specific hate hoax explain in a paragraph or two max b)the perpetrators c) links to the national media publications validating it as well as the subsequent narrative collapse stories.
    Only cases with national media stories would apply.

    -The money raised would pay for the website and a moderator as well as a possible researcher doing part time work. The hired researcher can look past at stories that can be found from the Sailer archives, Amren, Colin Flaherty,etc. Most of the suggestions will come from the internet crowd who can submit stories on the site fitting the 3 items formula.

    -A section for 2 types of analysis. a) quantitative analysis of the sort Sailer has called for b)analysis of how hate hoaxes work socially and culturally. Just need Sailer's articles here.
    Don't need to find new talent to curate crowd sourced material. Hire existing people alt sphere like James Fulford to do research for example. This will be part time work in any event.

    -Promoting the concept
    Get these people involved.
    Alt-Light: Cern0/Posobiec+ Gateway pundit+Lauren Southern+Gavin Mcinnes+Infowars
    Dissident/Alt Right: Vdare(Brimelow)+Amren(Taylor)+Altright.com(Spencer)+etc.

    In order for the concept to spread you need the great propagandists of the alternative media. The great twitter propagandists from both the Alt-Light+Right are crucial since they attack journalists as well as provide stories/angles for the softer bellies Conservatism Inc. that are open to the alternative sphere. Thinking of Breitbart and Daily Caller in particular. The concept will break through if trolls relentlessly attack journalists with it or if it becomes common phraseology on the Trump right.

    In addition the material could be sent to favoured social scientists or to people who would be willing to use it as a cheatsheet. Like the people at City Journal for example.

    -A Steve Sailer video
    Want a concept to spread among the masses then make it easy a digestible. A 3 min max video explaining the concept based off of a longer more in depth 10-15 min video. The sort of thing people can share with each other. A video based approach detailing the hate hoaxes per month or taking egregious ones in particular, could be every effective. They can be advertised with Facebook Ads and take a life of their own.

    All of these things could be done without a lot money or effort. It's unfortunate that leadership in alt-sphere is too weak. Instead it relies on more decentralized trolling for its big publicity successes like the brilliant "It's okay to be white". The reaction to the Damore scandal of exporting memes from the digital world to physical one is the way forward. It is the intermediate step before you go completely public.

    Honestly, my take away from this is that Jews are criminally insane and very dangerous to Whites. Very. As if what they did in Russia wasn’t enough, and not just Russia.
    Still waiting on the movies about that by the way. So far not one. But over 300 about youknowwhat.

    Our culture, which took hundreds, thousands of years to develop, is a Culture of Individual Conscience.
    Theirs is still a Culture of Blind Obedience to their Authority.

    Incompatible. We need a cultural divorce based on irreconcialable differences. We want to live, and they want to kill us.

    Not always individually, but, as a group that positively identifies as Jewish, they have no empathy, no shame, no conscience, but lots of open hatred, usually based on an unwitting violation of their insane Myth of Innocence, which says, “We never do anything wrong. Things are done to us.” And they demand we all believe that obvious lie.

    Which is why now that they’re in power WE have to constantly apologize as if we’re the only ones who’ve ever made a mistake, and as if Whites were one big happy family, or a single body with one head, two arms, and two legs.

    Of course such criminal bullies would have to hate us.
    Because if they didn’t they’d have to admire us for being the ONLY power who ever allowed itself to be criticized! Something they took complete advantage of, being the criminals they are.
    They’re racially dogmatic, closed-minded, compulsive, and conformist.

    As a Jewish professor once asked, “How can anything Jewish be Democratic?”
    He added two other comments, “Jews are the smartest and dumbest people at the same time.”

    Given that their smarts are limited to infiltration, subversion, inversion (of reality), perversion, and, of course, violation, and given the fact that they’ve completely succeeded (a bloody revolt is the ONLY way we’re ever going to get out from under – for all of you out there who still want to have your cake and eat it), we’ll finally get to see just how dumb they really are. Because, when you spend centuries climbing to the top blaming someone else for everything, what do you do when you’ve rendered your “enemy” powerless? What do you do when you finally get to the top?

    You do what they’re doing now! Indulge in your bad habits.
    They’re addicts who’ve been found out. And what do addicts do when they’ve been found out, when everybody knows?
    They indulge in their addiction all the more until they hit bottom, if they ever do. And if they do in this case it will be at our expense.

    The only good addict is the one who knows what they are and uses that knowledge to change. Which brings us to the third thing that professor said, “The only good Jew is a self-hating Jew.”
    He very well may be right.

    Regardless, they’ve made it perfectly clear that they’re destroyers NOT creators. They’re also not particularly good at managing the civilization they inherited. Of course, because they didn’t create it.

    They’re just going to continue doing what they’re doing, placing themselves above criticism, while demonizing and pathologizing all dissent and opposition. The only solution is a permanent separation. If that doesn’t work, then Fight or Die, or both.
    At least this way you get to choose between an honorable death, or an ignominious end. Only a dog could go on living this way.
    And that’s obviously how they look at us.
    But that’s not how we have to look at ourselves.

    . Moore is almost certain to lose, unless he can prove that all accusations are false. I’m not sure how he can do that.
     
    The yearbook is the key. It clearly looks suspicious and Gloria Allred refuses to release it unless conditions that she knows will never be met are agreed to. There are too many suspicious items in that yearbook to be believed without further analysis.

    Like I said above, the yearbook should be irrelevant to whether or not assault was committed. However, the anti-Moore side made it their prominent piece of evidence. So debunking it now takes on a much greater role. This cannot be done unless a neutral party can examine it.

    Additionally the woman claimed she had no further contact with Moore after the 1977 assault. But Moore's team discovered that she appeared in front of his court in 1999, and did not ask that he recuse himself or make any objection to Moore being the presiding judge. This too seems to damage her credibility.

    Thomas Wictor has done a thorough job in analyzing the yearbook from video and photos that are publicly available. You can view his timeline here. Keep in mind he hasn't cleaned up the entries into any nice, presentable executive summary. But if you look through his recent tweets, you will see what he has been up to.

    Keep in mind so far just a handful of twitter users have even taken up this case. The whole world saw the yearbook and assumed it was legit, or were too afraid to question it. Look at what happened to Hannity over the weekend with his advertisers over the Moore issue. No one else wants to risk it. Even Hannity has acted like he has been de-nutted over the past couple of days. He demanded Moore provide proof of his innocence in 24 hours or else.

    Unless the yearbook is examined, Moore can't prove anything. How can you prove something did not happen 40 years ago? You can't. So if they won't release the yearbook, Moore and company have to find a way to show voters that is an admission that the charges are bunk.

    Why can’t Moore file a libel suit and turn the yearbook into evidence? This does not address the election, but if it is fake a libel judgment might make a nice consolation if he loses. And set a precedent for dealing with things like this in the future perhaps.

    I think you are correct. And they almost made it payoff. If you recall Bush was up in the polls the final week. Heading into the Friday prior to Tuesday's election, Bush announced he was basically shutting his campaign down. He was heading to Texas to relax and wait for Tuesday.

    Gore meanwhile was scheduled to do a mad dash last ditch campaign through Florida culminating on Miami beach at midnight before the election.

    On Friday the Bush story was released. Bush was already in shut down mode and did not respond well. Gore was already geared up for his final hail-Mary push. The result was he closed the gap and caused Florida to be the mess that wasn't decided until December. Other states' results tightened too.

    I think the dems probably released the info too late. They needed a few more days for it to percolate.

    Timing is everything. I think the Access Hollywood tape was released too early. They released it in early October on a Friday prior to the 2nd debate. Trump then counter attacked by pummeling Bill Clinton on his sex scandals. He also had another debate ahead of him and four weeks to fight it. Additionally the democrats marched too many women to count in front of the cameras. Had they released that tape a week out, he would have lost.

    I think WaPo ran this Roy Moore story with too much time. Sure it was too late to replace Moore on the ballot, but they still gave him 4 weeks to get his bearings and go on the offensive. And now the yearbook from a woman they did not even need might end up saving him.

    I think you should dump your dirt about 7 to 10 days out. You need the voters to see it, but you can't give the guy too much time to launch a counter attack.

    In 1992, the Gennifer Flowers story broke almost a month before the New Hampshire primary. (The primary was on Feb. 18. The story broke on Jan. 23. The famous “pain in my marriage” interview on 60 Minutes aired on Jan. 26 – Super Bowl Sunday.)

    After a grueling campaign, Clinton finished a strong second to Paul Tsongas – good enough to keep his hopes alive.

    Later that year, on the day before Halloween – the Friday before the election – the Iran-contra special prosecutor dropped a little October surprise of his own in his indictment of Caspar Weinberger. There’s little evidence that it affected the outcome either way.

    Ironically, Iran-contra was one of the issues that helped George Bush win the New Hampshire primary in 1988. CBS anchor Dan Rather tried to ambush Bush in a live TV interview, but the effort backfired. Bush’s combative response to Rather’s questions helped him shed his image as a patrician wimp. (That interview, incidentally, was conducted on Jan. 25; the primary was on Feb. 16.)

    In 2008, Hillary famously lost Iowa to Barack Obama. That election was held on Jan. 3, a Thursday; the New Hampshire primary was scheduled for the next Tuesday. Over the weekend, Clinton’s campaign totally unraveled and she was reduced to a weeping wreck of a former first lady. But there was light at the end of the tunnel – her onslaught of (crocodile*) tears enabled her to surf to victory, keeping her hopes alive for months to come.

    *She’s nothing if not reptilian.

    Spot on. I might add these hoaxes also part of a low intensity war against whites aided and abetted by the MSM.

    In addition the Left in general is much more prone to outright violence and intimidation than those on the right. The Left in general just attracts dangerously unbalanced people. This is why the Left has anti-fa and others whose sole mission is to physically hurt people whom they don't like. Just like the church shooter in Texas who last two facebook posts were in support of Anti-fa.

    Others just like to protest and scream like some pod person. Triggly Puff comes to mind as do most feminists and the myriad of sexual deviants that the Left attracts.

    A corrosive effect of hate hoaxes and similar gambits is that they degrade the discourse. Respondents get sullied in the process, diverting their energies and intentions from other activities. Think of hate hoaxes as yet another tax, on your time, your civility, your equanimity.

    OT, does anyone have an opinion on the Roy Moore yearbook signature? Any opinions on whether this is the political hack job of the century?

    And next it emerged that up to 2,000 threats were the work of an energetic young Jewish man in Israel with dual Israeli-American citizenship, Michael Ron David Kadar.
     
    People talk a lot about Jewish IQ, but they rarely talk about the frenetic energy many Jews have. I suspect, though, that that has at least as much to do with their success as IQ. And the related fact that their self-confidence tends to be crazy high. Very few opportunities for success are lost.

    I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we've heard about of late. Perhaps even the tendency toward the kink of exhibitionism is related?

    Is this all environment or genes? Here too I'd guess genes play a big role. Select too hard for certain traits, like success, and some strange things are likely to pop out at the top.

    “some strange things are likely to pop out at the top.”

    All too true.

    This is why you boomers were unable to conserve women's bathrooms and the Left was on the road to legalized pederastry until Donald Trump started tweeting a cartoon frog: because you're eager and willing to cede moral authority to a Left that knows power is the only thing that matters.

    FYI yet again we see the same mentality around here that we saw during the Pres Election: blackpiller eeyores taking the lockstep braying of the coastal journos as reality. Sad!

    Oy vey,

    I’ve been called many things, but a Boomer, wow.

    My parents are Boomers, I’m much further to the social right than they are.

    "I suspect as well that this all has a great deal to do with why Jewish men are so well represented among the sexual predators we’ve heard about of late."

    They're well represented among *famous* sexual predators because, I suspect, they're well represented among the famous. That's where I'd put my money anyway.

    Most routine cases of sexual harassment, statutory rape, etc. (i.e., the kind that only get mentioned in the local news) have perps who are (very roughly) proportional to their share of the population. I don't notice a large % of Jews among them, unless Jews are just better at getting away with it.

    I don’t know if I’d give sexual harassment equal status with statutory rape.

    I’d argue that, for sexual harassment at least, non-elite Jews and minorities are actually under-reported; Jews due to the likelihood of their being in a “power” position over the harassed and minorities due to the probable backlash for accusing a member of one of the protected classes.

    As we see from the whole Hollywood debacle, Jewish guys were indeed constantly using their power over wannabe actresses’ aspirations to grope, masturbate, etc.

    Honestly, my take away from this is that Jews are criminally insane and very dangerous to Whites. Very. As if what they did in Russia wasn't enough, and not just Russia.
    Still waiting on the movies about that by the way. So far not one. But over 300 about youknowwhat.

    Our culture, which took hundreds, thousands of years to develop, is a Culture of Individual Conscience.
    Theirs is still a Culture of Blind Obedience to their Authority.

    Incompatible. We need a cultural divorce based on irreconcialable differences. We want to live, and they want to kill us.

    Not always individually, but, as a group that positively identifies as Jewish, they have no empathy, no shame, no conscience, but lots of open hatred, usually based on an unwitting violation of their insane Myth of Innocence, which says, "We never do anything wrong. Things are done to us." And they demand we all believe that obvious lie.

    Which is why now that they're in power WE have to constantly apologize as if we're the only ones who've ever made a mistake, and as if Whites were one big happy family, or a single body with one head, two arms, and two legs.

    Of course such criminal bullies would have to hate us.
    Because if they didn't they'd have to admire us for being the ONLY power who ever allowed itself to be criticized! Something they took complete advantage of, being the criminals they are.
    They're racially dogmatic, closed-minded, compulsive, and conformist.

    As a Jewish professor once asked, "How can anything Jewish be Democratic?"
    He added two other comments, "Jews are the smartest and dumbest people at the same time."

    Given that their smarts are limited to infiltration, subversion, inversion (of reality), perversion, and, of course, violation, and given the fact that they've completely succeeded (a bloody revolt is the ONLY way we're ever going to get out from under - for all of you out there who still want to have your cake and eat it), we'll finally get to see just how dumb they really are. Because, when you spend centuries climbing to the top blaming someone else for everything, what do you do when you've rendered your "enemy" powerless? What do you do when you finally get to the top?

    You do what they're doing now! Indulge in your bad habits.
    They're addicts who've been found out. And what do addicts do when they've been found out, when everybody knows?
    They indulge in their addiction all the more until they hit bottom, if they ever do. And if they do in this case it will be at our expense.

    The only good addict is the one who knows what they are and uses that knowledge to change. Which brings us to the third thing that professor said, "The only good Jew is a self-hating Jew."
    He very well may be right.

    Regardless, they've made it perfectly clear that they're destroyers NOT creators. They're also not particularly good at managing the civilization they inherited. Of course, because they didn't create it.

    They're just going to continue doing what they're doing, placing themselves above criticism, while demonizing and pathologizing all dissent and opposition. The only solution is a permanent separation. If that doesn't work, then Fight or Die, or both.
    At least this way you get to choose between an honorable death, or an ignominious end. Only a dog could go on living this way.
    And that's obviously how they look at us.
    But that's not how we have to look at ourselves.

    Because, when you spend centuries climbing to the top blaming someone else for everything, what do you do when you’ve rendered your “enemy” powerless? What do you do when you finally get to the top?

    Move to another country.

    I track the phenomenon of Jewish newspapers/magazines touting the joys and benefits of moving to/doing business in the PRC.

    I think this article is a great overall summary, with enough varied examples to interest many people in the truth of the matter.

    About this part:

    Undeterred, the ADL responded to Kadar’s arrest in Israel not by demanding his extradition to the U.S. but by issuing an amusing press release announcing:

    While the details of this crime remain unclear, the impact of this individual’s actions is crystal clear: These were acts of anti-Semitism.
     

     
    The italicized quote, from the article, illustrates the ridiculous pretzel-logic-falsehoods that we hear all the time now. It takes a lot of gall to say things like this, as it means one thinks the readers are too stupid to drill down to where the lie is. The problem is, you may need to use knowledge from a rigorous college-level course in logic to explain the lie.

    Analogies do much better, I think: There was this large black A.M.E. church that had a lot of money stolen that was supposed to be for sending many of the black youngsters to summer camp. Well, it was not the racist white KKK guys, as we had thought; it turns out the money was stolen by a member of the congregation who was somewhat of a crack addict. The money was gone though, spent on crack and skanky hookers. The church elders had been completely wrong about what happened, but the impact of this individual's actions were the same - the poor black young-uns were not able to go to camp. So, it was still an act of racism.

    I mean, WTF? does not begin to to cover this evil lie, masked as stupidity.

    “Cotton Comes to Harlem.”
