  4. Mauritanians are Who We Are.

    Indeed.


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

    Slavery has been called “deeply rooted” in the structure of the northwestern African country of Mauritania, and “closely tied” to the ethnic composition of the country.

    …In 1981, Mauritania became the last country in the world to abolish slavery… However, no criminal laws were passed to enforce the ban…. In 2007, “under international pressure”, the government passed a law allowing slaveholders to be prosecuted.

    Despite this, the number of slaves in the country has been estimated by …the organization SOS Slavery to be up to 600,000 (or 17% of the population)…

    The position of the government of Mauritania is that slavery is “totally finished … all people are free”, and that talk of it “suggests manipulation by the West, an act of enmity toward Islam, or influence from the worldwide Jewish conspiracy.”…

    The country has jailed more anti-slavery activists than slave owners, rights groups say.”

  5. Some guy who writes at the Atlantic says America needs to take in Mauritanians from the planet Mauritania. Okay cool.

    I think all domestic flights in South America should be free. The same thing with all public transit. They need to get on that. Those poor people down there have suffered enough.

    I can comfortably say that because I’m not in charge of any airline or transit system in south America and no one will come after me if they do what I recommend and go bankrupt. I am on such a natural high right now, just from advocating for those people in South America!

    We get lots of legal and illegal Congolese these days. Can you imagine that? The freakin Congo. Thank God African illegal immigration is mostly Europe’s headache.

    The Mauritians being deported were scammed on their asylum claims…according to The Atlantic.

    Mauritania ranks number 128 in the list of countries (and dependencies) by population. The population density in Mauritania is 5 per Km 2 (12 people per mi 2). The total land area is 1,030,700 Km2 (397,955 sq. miles) 59.6 % of the population is urban (2,779,510 people in 2019) The median age in Mauritania is 19.9 years.

    Most likely they are generic French Speaking Africans claiming Mauritian nationality as some sort of legal strategy.

Maybe an Atlantic editor and ten of our sodomites thrown in for free with every purchase of 5,000 or more .

    Al-Jahiz had a few thoughts on slaves :

    We know that the Zanj (blacks) are the least intelligent and the least discerning of mankind, and the least capable of understanding the consequences of actions.

    Bad think from the 8th century : “Animals engage in a struggle for existence; for resources, to avoid being eaten and to breed. Environmental factors influence organisms to develop new characteristics to ensure survival, thus transforming into new species. Animals that survive to breed can pass on their successful characteristics to offspring.”

    All the federal workers are getting paid. Banks are fronting paychecks to those who are not actually getting paid knowing full well that the feds will make them whole when this is over. AOC’s fairy tale about some federal worker complaining to her about having no money is complete hogwash.

    As Steyn pointed out, AOC will be around for a long time, and the right should challenge her ideas and leave her personality (dancing, for instance) alone. She is a dangerous woman.

  24. syonredux says:

    I don’t think that Mr Foer has gotten over 1939-45:

    The Girl Who Lived
    Remembering my grandmother, whose improbable survival became the foundational story for my family’s existence

    There were the scissors that my grandmother somehow remembered to bring with her as she fled. She could hear the rumble of destruction in the distance. She could see the cloud of smoke that was the Nazi murder of her family and neighbors. Without forethought, she made the decision to run ahead, carrying with her the scissors and, despite the blossoms of spring, a winter coat.

    By the time I reached fifth grade, the scissors and the coat had become the foundational tale of my family’s existence. The small Jewish woman who turned her basement into a well-stocked bunker filled with enough bags of flour and boxes of Rice Krispies to withstand the next catastrophe emerged as our superhero. Her life was a testament to cunning, courage, and contingency. When I think about the scissors and the coat, it’s hard not to also think of the mountain of worn shoes at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, or the television clip that pauses to show the eyes of the child migrant. It’s hard not to think about the bare margin that separates survival from death, the decision made in a flicker that accounts for existence.

    Her life connected ours to tragedy and history. I have piles of cassettes, compiled while sitting with her as she recounted her biography at her faux-marble kitchen table, sipping instant coffee from a red mug. She died 10 days ago. Now we no longer have her witness—in a time when Jews are slaughtered in Pittsburgh, when anti-Semites have regained power in the old blood-lands of Europe. My grandmother has become a memory, at a moment when the memory of the destruction of Jewry seems too faint to restrain the return of animal hatreds.

    As a teenager, she was a communist, an act of rebellion in a small conservative shtetl. I imagine the intensity of her yearning for a better world, the romanticism that would lead her to dream like that. It was this rebellion, her sense that the Nazis might seek her out for special punishment, that prodded her to flee. Her story of survival was bound together with her capacity for free thinking and her ability to feel deeply.

    The Supreme Court is known for its esoteric reading.

    The justices would say something like:
    “Part A:
    The Commerce clause says that the Federal Government may regulate interstate commerce. Therefore, since Federal Employees spend money used in interstate commerce, the Federal Government must consider the effect of Federal payrolls on interstate commerce when shutting down. The Commerce Department has jurisdiction here (not the President) and apparently favors re-opening the Federal Government. It is so ordered.”

    Part B of the ruling:

    The above makes more sense than the reasoning of ” The law violated a right of privacy not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but found in the “penumbras” formed by “emanations” in the Bill of Rights, as Justice William Douglas so imaginatively explained. ” That reasoning is not law, it’s esoteric reading, just not as coherent as the esoteric reading at the beginning of this article.

    “Penumbras” may not be coherent, but it’s lasted because the Supreme Court had prestige back than, prestige it doesn’t have now. Even the Democrats attack the Supreme’s now.

    I’m glad they will run out of money. If we cannot have a Wall, it means we cannot have a border and without a real border we don’t have a real country, we have no nation. If there is no nation, I see no reasons for national courts. I see no reason for a national defense department. Who are they defending me from exactly? Certainly not the invaders who come across the border they don’t recognize. I see no reason for national taxes either. I don’t want my money to pay for an endless stream of Mauritanians and Guatemalans. I want my money to go to my nation – which does not exist – so I will have it go to my family. I’ve already written off any chance of actually getting any social security. If we have to start all over, better it be now, before it is too late. Trump should demand a Constitutional Convention of the States.

    It’s similar to the situation in the Sudan before the southern part became independent. The “Arab” leaders are black by any reasonable standard, just not quite as dark as the others. Another analogy would be the racial difference between Haitians and Dominicans, although no Mauritanians are as light as some Dominicans are.

    So the map shows the location of Mauritiana, the home of the Mauritianans, which is different than Mauritius, the home of the Mauritians.

    But where is Mauritania?

    Has Mauritania always been at war with Mauritiana?

    Africa can be confusing.

  60. From the Atlantic article:

    Until the Trump era, the American immigration system implicitly conceded the validity of their claims [to asylum]. Although judges had ordered their removal, ice never made the Mauritanians a priority. The government let them stay. Over the years, which turned into decades, the Mauritanians opened businesses; they became fans of Ohio State football; they were implanted in American soil and became citizens in all but name.

    The lefties have this bizarro idea that the longer you have gotten away with violating the law, the more you should be exonerated. It’s like saying that an embezzler has become accustomed to the lifestyle supported by his fraud, so it would be cruel to make him give back the money now. It’s essentially a theory of citizenship by “adverse possession.”

    Once foreigners become Ohio State football fans you can’t deport them. But this just proves why it is so imperative to bar entry and/or immediate deport illegals in the first place.

    Mauretania is also known for their tradition of fattening their girls before marriage.

    It sounded like summer camp. “You’re going on vacation to the desert to meet other girls and eat sweet food,” Tijanniya Mint Tijani’s mother told her. Tijanniya was excited. “She said that by the time I returned home, I’d be a beautiful woman.”

    The girls have been sent to this desolate spot near Atar to endure the practice of leblouh — intensive force-feeding. “The aim is to feed them until their bodies blow up like balloons,” says Aminetou Mint Elhacen, 50, the woman wielding the cane.

    Wonderful news. Federal

    Payday happened to fall on December 31 and our W2s were enclosed in the paycheck envelope. So I did my taxes the next week and had an $800 refund coming. This was early 90s when $800 was worth more than it is today.

    I waited about 6 weeks no refund and called the IRS number The standard surly black sow snarled call back in 2 weeks.

    I did and another surly black sow snarled call back in 2 weeks. This went on till June. The newspaper announced that the IRS would mail out all the remaining refund checks by June 6

    No check came I called same snarling black sow. Then in August I went to a party. Lots of trial attorneys were there talking about the surly black sows at the county clerk and courthouses who went out of their way to be nasty and incompetent*

    I mentioned my surly black sow problem to a guy who told me to call him at his office for a secret 800 number all the tax attorneys use. That number was to the IRS call centers in Utah, home of competent White men.

    I called and glory alleluia !!hosanna to God in the highest!!! a White man answered. He said wait a minute and I could hear his keyboard clicking

    That was the first time I’d heard a keyboard clicking in all those months of calling He said the envelope had been returned by the post office January 28th. I received the check 4 days later. In the middle of August just in time for new school clothes.

    Then I went to HR and changed my tax form to 10 dependents plus myself and embarked on a successful career of avoiding and evading

    *. Thank God for electronic filing. Just a couple clicks and new filings are entered and the fees paid and no more sending couriers to deal with the surly black sows at the county clerk’s office.

    Wait, is that last photo Minneapolis or Mauritania? I am confused.

    Well, it does look like the old train depot in Minneapolis, but the water there is inside and frozen, and people skate on it. Not in long dresses, though. (Saint Paul’s train station is actually a train station again.)

    Nouakchott is closer to Detroit than to Mogadishu, in air mileage. Really. Minneapolis is slightly farther away.

    Was Granma one of the actresses in those TV ADs begging the gullible goyim to send that grifter con artist Rabbi $25 to give Passover and Yom Kippur dinners to starving homeless Jewish old ladies dressed in rags sleeping on the streets of Isrsel?

    All those billions America sends to Israel every year and there still starving ancient holofraud survivors sleeping on the streets of Israel with no food clothes or shelter.

    I assume the make up artists charge that grifter conman rabbi substantial fees for the 2 inch deep wrinkles they put on the actresses faces

    I am going to have to assume that Mr. Foer is another dual national. I do doubt that his duality is the Islamic Republic of Mauretania,

    This is why the concept of separation needs to be articulated. (Note to the usual whiners: it doesn’t mean we have separate, it’s an idea–a thought experiment–that unmasks the who-whom.)

    My ancestors left me a great nation, that was great because it was built by people like them–not Mauritanians. I want to live in that nation–America.

    I’ve got absolutely no problem with Franklin Foer surrounding himself with Mauritanians. Have at it Frank! But that’s clearly *not* what Franklin Foer wants. He isn’t interested in living with Maritanians, he is demanding that I live–white gentiles like me live–with Maritanians.

    Let’s just shine a little clarity on what’s going on here.

    Nouakchott is closer to Detriot in every sense, but it lacked the mellifluous alliteration of Minneapolis.

    Speaking of train stations, Detriot will need a new (old) model derelict as Ford just bought the old Michigan Central Station and is renovating the thing. Given they built the Renaissance Center then eventually sold it to Government Motors as a HQ, we will see what ultimately becomes of this landmark.

    This is good news. We have beautiful old buildings like New York but we almost never take care of ours. Hopefully something good can be done here. The old train station is at the southern edge of the city center, the historic Corktown neighborhood, near the old ball park, a block away from a gourmet restaurant cluster, and serves as a gate to Mexicantown. In Chicago terms (which I cannot specify) this would be like letting a major structure rot in front of every tourist, something they wouldn’t allow. They can’t fix everything but letting this thing go was a major humiliation. Of course, a major part of the problem was the owner, Matty al-Majnuwn Maroun, monopoly owner of the painfully outdated Ambassador Bridge and enemy of development. He is the evil billionaire counterpart to Dan Gilbert.

    Sure. The government is supposed to be cracking down over there. Many of the slave drivers have been persecuted, hell, even prosecuted for their, uhh, activities. Between slave drivers, atheists, and homos, I think the Lutheran Churches of Minnesota will have plenty of people to sponsor for asylum. If the US Gov’t gets all strict and stuff, I guess the Lutherans can start with just the Mauritanians who are atheist homosexual slave drivers, a trifecta of victimization.

    I passed through there as a passenger when I was about ten. We may have left from the new Penn Station, so all the architectural beauty was at the end of the trip.

    Years later, I had an Amtrak ticket with a connection through Detroit. Freight traffic made the train to Toledo seriously late, so the sent a handful of us in a taxi to Detroit. The “station” at the time seemed to be a trailer on stilts. The “train” to the west was a bus.

    I’m still waiting for the details of the Foer-as-a-dinner-guest incident.

    In the meantime, read the appropriate chapter in Egil’s Saga. Egil was the worst dinner guest since those Greeks in that horse.

    Egil Punishes Armod

    Egil from Egil’s Saga treats many people horribly, but he punishes Armod in the most strange and disgusting way. Armod hosts Egil and his men for a short time, and insults Egil with his poor hospitality by not serving ale from the beginning of the meal. In return, after finally receiving the ale, Egil drinks in excess. He then stands up, forces Armod against a wall, and vomits all over Armod’s face so that it gets into his eyes, ears, and mouth.

    As if that were not bad enough, the next day Egil is still not satisfied and goes to Armod’s room with the intent to kill him. Armod’s wife and daughter plead with Egil not to, so he decides to spare Armod’s life. However, before leaving, he enacts another bizarrely specific punishment on his host by shaving his beard and putting out one of his eyes.

    I don’t put it down to hatred. Just stupidity of the descendants. I see the exact same phenomenon with the Irish and others. I care about American unemployed, I don’t care about Irish unemployed. The US isn’t here to be a safety valve for Ireland but I have seen Boston Irish lobbying for more Irish immigration for 40 years. Tip O’Neill – remember him? Ted Kennedy. Would our ancestors really have let your ancestors in had we known you would demand we let in any unemployed Irishman, forever? I don’t blame the original immigrants. They probably were grateful to be here. I blame their descendants who assign meanings to their ancestor’s lives that their ancestors probably would find strange. We need to stop all immigration for a while and re-establish our sense of American nationhood.

    Somalia and Ethiopia had a little Soviet arms trade show in the late 70s (the British had Gertrude Belled some Somali pastures to the Ethiopians with the unforgivably stupid excuse that they expected the Africans to share); it was the biggest tank battle after Kursk, with the Somalis fielding a claimed total of around six hundred armored vehicles, more than half of which were personnel carriers.

    In a nutshell, following his experiences with the Somalians, he opined that the only way to improve Somalia in a way that would last would be cluster bombing it all day, every day, for a year. He said they were like gypsies, sans the moral fiber.

    As Charles Dickens once said, abject poverty twists the soul, so it does the Somalians.

    I’ve spent plenty of time in developing Asia. I assure you that “guys welding an inch from their bare feet, without eye protection” is not only normal, but just the tip of the iceberg. Try also utter disregard for basic safety measures. Not a few weeks goes by without some major killer fire started by careless welders letting sparks cascade wherever.

    There was some construction next to our house. Dumbass welders were letting sparks drop into our yard directly around the natural gas cannister. My wife yelled at them. They didn’t care, kept doing it. Taking safety measures might require more effort. No, the priority is slapdash work at the lowest possible quality they can get away with and still get paid.

    We got out of the house while they were working.
