    The solution to the daily carnage in Chicago now presents itself. Simply reclassify the assailants as ‘White Nationalists’ and the crimes as ‘accidental’ or ‘unintentional’ and then the full force of the Legal Establishment (not to mention the MSM) will be brought to bear upon each and every one of them, with penalties ranging from 500 to 900 years per offense. I recommend enlisting the assistance of the Twitterverse once the reclassifications are underway. Should be short work all ’round.

    Specifically, she lost her first political race to a semi-conservative black Dem cop named James Davis. When Davis was running for re-election, the Dem primary loser was a younger gay black Othniel Askew. To show no hard feelings after the Dem primary but before the election, Davis invited Askew to a counsel meeting, during which Askew whipped out a gun and killed him.

    Letitia James then won the now open seat running a second time on the far-left Working Families third party.

    I wish I could agree, but I can’t. No matter whom the democrats run, or what they run on, they have a 50-50 or better shot of winning. There are just too many electoral votes that they already have in the bank right now. Gone are the days when you could have a Reagan-type landslide of 49 states.

    Election night 2020 will be a nail biter and will come down to about 4 or 5 states. And given the democrats were taken by surprise in MI, PA, and WI, what are the chances that Detroit, Philly and Milwaukee don’t come up with the winning margins this time? Add to that the ever present shenanigans in Broward County, FL, along with the readmitted felon vote, and FL will be tough as well.

  45. This is idiocy. Even in the Ellis Island days when almost everyone got in if it was thought you would become a public charge you would be sent back. So, the new policy is not un-American, it is consistent with American history.

    BTW, I fucking hate Trump but the Democrats have gotten into a knee-jerk mode where they just take the opposite position of Trump on anything – Trump could have a lot of fun with that if he tried.

    Also, if not giving permanent residency to people on public welfare benefits of some sort is evil, that means that pretty much every Western country in the world is evil. Is there any country anywhere that grants permanent residency to people getting welfare benefits? I doubt it.

    Speaking of immigration – we have Steve’s very scary Most Important Graph in the World. But the Trump administration has cut back on international birth control programs, cutting funds all around and also imposing a rule that any NGO that mentions abortion can’t be funded. If you really think that graph is scary/important, you can’t defend Trump’s family planning policies.

    Why should I want someone like this in my country?

    I recall that one of the requirements about either gaining legal entry into the US, or becoming a citizen is that the person have a positive disposition towards the US and its Constitution. I’m writing this from memory, so I don’t think I have the wording exact.

    But let’s assume there is the requirement to have a positive disposition to the US. Shouldn’t there also be the requirement to have a positive disposition towards Americans as well? I’d imagine that if someone applied for citizenship and help negative views about blacks, they would probably be denied. It seems to me that it should be reasonable to deny someone who hates the dominate demographic group as well. If you have that much hatred for the most important group, you might as well not come in the first place.

    If you want to see what a real democracy was with people not voting party lines, just look at 1984. Everyone always thinks about Reagan winning a landslide, which he did that year. Here is the map.

    But most people don’t realize that the democrats wiped the GOP in the House of Representatives. While Reagan won 49 states (he came up 4K shy in MN), the democrats took 253 to 182 seats in the House. Here is the map. That seems unreal today because people more often vote party lines, especially the new, paperwork Americans.

    BTW, the GOP did win the Senate in 1984 by a count of 55-45. See the map.

    But what amazes me is that the GOP had a guy at the top of the ticket win 49 states, and yet they couldn’t come close to taking the House. My guess is the democrats gerrymandered the heck out of the districts back then so that they could win districts, but not the total state-wide vote. This is evident too by the GOP taking the Senate which are state-wide races as well. But I do not have hard evidence on this. It’s just a guess.

    Milton Friedman said as much a few decades ago and you can probably find it on you tube too.

  54. istevefan says:

    Denying people a path to citizenship simply because they depend on public benefits is patently un-American.

    But aren’t we told that immigrants are not welfare cases? Every time one of us discusses immigrants and welfare, the other side cites some BS study from a paid immigrant advocacy group which claims that immigrants either don’t use welfare, or use it at lower rates than the natives.

    So if immigrants are not using welfare, shoudln’t it be immaterial for AG James and her cohorts to even care? Given their insistence that immigrants don’t use welfare, this government charge clause wouldn’t matter.

    Of course we believe they do use welfare and that this clause would put a crimp in their immivasion. And AG James and company know this too. That is why they are objecting so loudly. It’s like that old saying that one knows when one is over the target by the amount of flak one receives. Well making sure immigrants are not a charge of the government is the equivalent of being in a B-17 over the Schweinfurt ball bearing factories.

    In 1982 Nixon won 49 states and the Democrats took both houses of Congress.

    Things were different then.

    LBJ took 45 states. Nixon and Reagan took 49.

    That means there were 43 states which voted for LBJ, Nixon and Reagan.

    Many of the solid blue or solid red states used to be the other way, or toss ups.

    Hawaii was a toss up in 1960, and again in 1976. The 1976 election was so close that it came down to the more remote Parishes of Louisiana and the outer islands of Hawaii. Ford needed both to win. Carter won both.

    Arkansas was the most solidly Democratic state until 1968. In 1972 Nixon took almost 70% of the vote in Arkansas, while the Democratic Governor Dale Bumpers was re-elected with almost 80% of the vote. Which means almost half the voters in the state voted for a Democrat and a Republican.

    That’s actually the core of the issue: GDP is the total value of all goods in an economy. How do we lift GDP? We either increase the price of goods or the number of consumers. If you haven’t noticed with all the rhetoric about “free trade,” it’s far easier to just import more mouths. In other words, it’s actually just a measurement problem. If we change how a country’s economy is gauged, high-volume immigration would immediately be obvious as a negative thing, but allowing a population to gradually shrink over time would be positive because the economy would adapt to the lowering consumption rates. Instead, our country’s health is measured only by consumption, which leads to perfectly logical decisions like “open borders.”

    In the same way, taxes are essentially just the government saying: “we think some people aren’t using money correctly, so we’ll do it for you.” After all, taxes tend to come from people with money, and people with money tend to have money because they save it. The economy, based on consumption measurements, doesn’t grow IN THE REQUIRED DIRECTION if people save. So, the government “redistributes” stationary money (savings) to those more likely to make it liquid (lower-class spenders). It’s all done under the rubric of ethics and is perfectly logical from the system’s perspective.

    This is why it’s important to remember that no one in the history of humanity has ever committed an evil act. Everyone thinks they are doing the right thing. The only question is what incentives they are working with. Change the incentives, change society.

    Whites have a median age of 44 whilst non-Whites have a median age of 31. Furthermore, White population data is skewed older with the most common age being 58; there are more 70 year old Whites than there are 18 year old whites. Median age of non-whites is 31. This means that each election cycle, the demographics shift more and more in Democrats’ favour.

    Here –> link, you can find her (@NewYorkStateAG) Twitter account filtered for “immigrants OR immigration” — her tweets about this general topic are … consistently extreme.

    But the most important thing to note is this: she will use, apparently without so much as a brief second thought, the coercive tax system to strip Americans (including you) of the wealth they produce in order to subsidize indigent immigrants — she will make a tax slave out of you for a purpose that is not at all in the common interest, and of course makes no sense — this is yet another example of how modern American politics is characterized by politically correct style over substance, and a complete lack of concern for ordinary working people.

I was attempting to describe the attitude of the 89 US Senators who voted against a bill from Rand Paul that would have provided more protections against the infiltration of terrorists into the United States.

    Here it is:

    ZEROTH AMENDMENT — “We have to continue to allow mass immigration. We have to have open borders immigration. Anybody who wants to come here needs to come here.”

    I also said Lindsey Graham’s immigration policy is “let anybody in.”

    Rand Paul made this excellent point at the town hall: “It does amaze me though, that the bill I put forward, the vast majority of people, the Rubios, the Grahams, all opposed that. And I don’t think it’s consistent for them to try to profess their big — ‘we’re defending the country’ — if they’re not willing to start by actually defending the border.”

    Maybe the libertarian Rand Paul is moving towards “Libertarianism In One Country.”

This would have set a precedent that any predominantly Christian-themed memorial on state grounds would need to go, regardless of cultural or historical significance.

I think he would have been the best Dem president in at least the last 50 years, perhaps longer. Cuomo did his run/not-run Hamlet routine to death. He may have been better than Dukakis. Hart was done in by a sex scandal, quaint as that seems now.

    1992 — Bush, being president, was arguably the best Republican. Clinton was arguably the best Democrat.

    1996 — almost any Republican would’ve been better than Dole.

    2000 — As bad as W was, McCain might’ve been worse. I think some random Republican off the street would have been better than either.

    2004 — Even Hillary Clinton would have been better than Kerry. Maybe.

    2008 — McCain was a dangerous lunatic who came frighteningly close to being elected president.

    2012 — As bad as Romney and Obama were, hard to find anyone else better in their party.

    16 — Trump got the nomination because the entire GOP field was embarrassing. Hillary scared any decent Democrats out of the race.

    And then the question you have to ask is: Did Bill Clinton go to the island? Because Epstein had an island that was not a good place, as I understand it. And I was never there.

Heather MacDonald’s Burden of Bad Ideas argues for strictly controlled charity and against free money for dropout criminals for example, rather than against charity. Medicare is often popular among Obamacare critics. The trouble is that those lines will go wobbly once they’ve been in place for a while.

    I live in Central Texas and anything dealing with construction is booming. I would estimate at the various construction sites 95-97 percent of the workers are Mexican. The bosses are invariably white but white and black workers are practically non-existent. I would also guess that of the 95% Mexicans the majority are illegal. Now if you were a white or black guy seeking employment I believe you would be politely discouraged from doing so by the white employer. Simply stated you would not fit in with a group of workers who speak Spanish primarily. If I weren’t so danged old I might try applying for a construction job to find out if my theory is correct.

    Mestizos and indios really don’t like gringos who speak Spanish, at least not to work around them. Plus which the indios tend not to speak Spanish but some Indian language.

    I have seen mestizos get really embarassed at shooting off in Spanih to some gringo, or more usually gringa, and when she came back at them in Spanish they get really bothered. They racistly assume whites don’t speak Spanish.

    One of the critical aspects of minoritarianism–minorities good, majorities bad–is that it makes the minorities *feel* better.

    Immigration to America is inherently a statement–what the economists call “revealed preference”–that white Americans built a *better country* to live in than your own people did back home. Now you may have been a minority back home and can blame “the other guys” back there. And, of course, you might not like the food, the music, the holidays, the religion, the culture. But bottom line, immigration is a statement that the white gentile (Anglo-Protestants) core of America did a better job of creating a prosperous, law-abiding, pleasant place to live than wherever the heck you’re from.

    And that chaffes at people! At minorities who think they are special people, and don’t think much of those white gentiles. At people who were colonized by whites. At people from other races and religions.

    So one of the beauties of the minoritarian raj is you can show up in America–a tacit admission–and then turn around and piss all over precisely the white people responsible for America being (at least once upon a time) awesome!

    Minoritarianism is not only incompatible with having a functioning–heck a surviving–nation, it is incompatible with just basic decent behavior.

    Trump urgently needs an EO that denies immigration adjustment, be it extension of visa, application for green card or citizenship, for anyone who has ever voted illegally in the US. Voting record is easy to find. This will end all illegal voting in the US in 2020 which is crucial if Trump wants to win.

    This is an excellent suggestion Anon2020.

    If someone here has Stephen Miller’s ear, get this on to him. Trump’s ridiculously bad at picking up a lot very useful suggestions–useful for his voters, for the nation. But this one is useful to him personally … he might just go for it.

    ” I would estimate at the various construction sites 95-97 percent of the workers are Mexican.”

    Which trades? I ask because I’m on commercial job sites almost everyday in the Chicago area and the only “trade” that is dominated by mestizos are the laborers. A distant tie for second are the teamsters and carpenters and some of the masons.

    Operating engineers and concrete finishers have more white women than they have mestizos in my observation. And electricians, pipe fitters, welders, and the utilities guys are all almost all white. The big problem is, 80% of those guys are all over the age of 50.

    The only blacks on these job sites are driving a truck, and they aren’t even close to representing their % of the total Chicagoland population.

    SC Judges can essentially write their own laws if they choose to.

    Just getting more SC judges is super important. You don’t want SC court judge Marijuana Pepsi Jones ruling the bill of rights invalid because the guy who wrote it was racist.

    Yeah, why would I want Justice Marijuana Pepsi Jones making such a ruling when it could otherwise be made by John Roberts – the reason I voted for George W. Bush in 2004. Kavanaugh doesn’t even seem to have the good sense to be forever biased against feminists, even after the abuse he received during his confirmation.

    Trump needs to tweet this and the Babylon Bee needs to publish it. That way we can have the MSM calling out Trump and Snopes calling out the Babylon Bee on their lies: “Emma Lazarus wasn’t really a founding father and she had nothing to do with the Statue of Liberty and there is no Constitutional right to immigrate to the US!”

    Or will Snopes suddenly (and temporarily) discover that the Bee is satire and will the MSM conveniently choose to ignore an error-filled Trump tweet?

    “Everybody in the world gets to be an American. So, shut up, bigot.”

    Let’s be more accurate here. Everybody in the world has the opportunity to be an American, provided they meet the criteria. Unfortunately, Democrats and Republicans are woefully neglectful in observing our current immigration laws. Because gimmedats and free stuff.

    Of course, if we want to get technical here, as one prominent Alt Right leader noted, the Constitution was meant secure the rights of Englishmen and only applies to this particular group of people, since the non-English–meaning white Europeans–lack the intellectual capacity to properly comprehend its ideals. So those American citizens born in Portugal or in Romania are other than American.

    Union jobs are going to be disproportionately older white guys.

    I’m involved in residential construction in Philly and nowadays there are a lot of not just Mexicans and Central Americans but S. Americans – Brazilians, Ecuadorians, etc. and people from the Caribbean. Also a bunch of ex-Soviets from various -stans who range from being Turkic looking to looking Chinese and every possible gradation between the two. Sometimes the boss is Russian and Russian is the lingua franca among the -staners. They are not just laborers but involved in the skilled trades – roofing, concrete work, framing, tile work, etc. Some of the trades have women in them – farm women from rural Brazil are said to be excellent manual laborers and are willing to do “men’s work”. American feminists are full of shit – the only men’s jobs they want are nice office jobs, preferably at the executive level. These women are the real thing. There are still some Americans left in the licensed trades – plumbing, electric, etc. Some of the suppliers are now owned by Chinese. It’s not uniform. Different ethnicities find seemingly random niches. Often these can all be traced to an individual Patient Zero. Some Dominican guy starts an iron work shop and hires his cousin who learns the trade and starts his own and then pretty soon all the guys doing metal stairs and railings are Dominican. (Ornamental iron work in Philly used to be a Jewish trade). But it’s a real UN out there, with non-immigrant Americans the minority. You may wonder what the hell are all these people doing here, but they’re here, from all over the planet.

    Maybe this omelet could be unscrambled someday and American would go back to being for Americans (if it ever was) but I frankly don’t see how – we are so far away from that that it’s not even funny.

    Yeah, migration from the -stans is a totally under-the-radar phenomenon, but there are entire swaths of New York City overrun with these people. But they have zero media presence.

    In addition to construction and various other blue-collar sorts of things (moving companies), they get involved in all kinds of low-end criminality, of just the kind you’d expect. Here’s a current example in a very -Stan neighborhood, a shop busted for selling illegal cigarettes (a huge underground business in NYC), snuff (snuff??) and liquor. They actually sold moonshine in seltzer bottles! My guess is it’s some kind of brew their co-ethnics enjoyed back home, so somebody was whipping it up in his basement. But the press is too polite to inquire about such interesting sociological questions. Naturally.

    https://nypost.com/2019/08/14/brooklyn-grocery-store-raided-by-nyc-sheriffs-officers/

    They had a fake liquor license as well. I assume fake documentation of all kinds is a big industry in all the immigrant hoods. High-trust sucker nation gets eaten alive by super-low-trust immigrants.

    I just finished reading Jack D’s post and I would say Central TX differs somewhat from Philly. For one thing we are much closer to Mexico and for years it has been easy for Mexicans to cross the border without a hassle. It is well know that a good share of the money paid to these workers is sent back to Mexico.
    As for the trades the construction sites I see mostly are highways, apartments and homes. It has been very hot recently temps topping 105 in the shade, but the Mexicans work all day under the broiling sun, most having the sense to keep covered much like the Arabs in the desert.

    Soviet peoples have been making moonshine (Samagon) since forever.

    When I was in Ukraine, they were selling 25 kg sacks of sugar in the supermarket. I assume it wasn’t for making jam.

    The best white wine I ever had I bought in a roadside farm stand in Greece – it was bottled in used plastic soda bottles and it cost like $1. I don’t know if this is legal in Greece (somehow I doubt that this complies with EU regulations) or not but a lot of things in Greece are not exactly legal and they do them anyway.
