That hysterical reaction to the travel ban announced Friday is a portent of what is to come if President Donald Trump carries out the mandate given to him by those who elected him.

The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on travel here from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.

Was that weekend-long primal scream really justified?

As of Monday, no one was being detained at a U.S. airport.

Yet the shrieking had not stopped. All five stories on page one of Monday’s Washington Post were about the abomination. The New York Times’ editorial, “Trashing American Ideals and Security,” called it bigoted, cowardly, xenophobic, Islamophobic, un-American, unrighteous.

This ban, went the weekend wail, is the “Muslim ban” of the Trump campaign. But how so, when not one of the six largest Muslim countries — Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Turkey — was on the list? Missing also were three-dozen other Muslim countries.

Of the seven countries facing a 90-day ban, three are U.S.-designated state sponsors of terror, and the other four are war zones. Clearly, this is about homeland security, not religious discrimination.

The criterion for being included in the travel ban appears to be that these places are the more likely breeding grounds for terrorists.

Yet there are lessons for the Trump White House in the media-stoked panic and outrage at the end of his first week in office.

First, Steve Bannon’s observation that the media are “the opposition party,” is obviously on target. While Sen. Chuck Schumer was crying on camera that the ban was “un-American,” the media were into the more serious business of stampeding and driving the protesters.

A second lesson is one every White House learns. Before a major decision is announced, if possible, get everyone’s input and everyone on board to provide what Pat Moynihan called the “second and third echelons of advocacy.” Those left out tend to leak.

A third lesson Trump should learn is that the establishment he routed and the city he humiliated are out to break him as they broke LBJ on Vietnam, Nixon on Watergate, and almost broke Reagan on the Iran-Contra affair.

While the establishment may no longer be capable of inspiring and leading the nation, so detested is it, it has not lost its appetite or its ability to break and bring down presidents.

And Trump is vulnerable, not only because he is an envied outsider who seized the highest prize politics has on offer, but because his agenda would cancel out that of the elites.

They believe in open borders, free trade, globalization. Trump believes in securing the Southern border, bringing U.S. industry home, economic nationalism, “America First.”

They want endless immigration from the Third World to remake America into the polyglot “universal nation” of Ben Wattenberg’s utopian vision. Trump’s followers want back the America they knew.

Our foreign policy elites see democratization as a vocation and an autocratic Russia as an implacable enemy. Trump instead sees Moscow as a potential ally against real enemies like al-Qaida and ISIS.

There is another reason for the reflexive howl at Trump’s travel ban. The establishment views it, probably correctly, as the first move toward a new immigration policy, built on pre-1965 foundations, and rooted in a preference for Western-Christian immigrants first.

When the Times rages that “American ideals” or “traditional American values” are under attack by Trump, what they really mean is that their ideology and agenda are threatened by Trump.

ORDER IT NOW

We are headed for a series of collisions and crises, and what has happened in Europe will likely happen here. As the Third World invasion and growing Islamization of the Old Continent — which the EU has proven unable to stop — has discredited centrist parties and continuously fed a populist-nationalist uprising there, so may it here also.

And Trump not only appears to have no desire to yield to his enemies in politics and the media, he has no choice, as he is now the personification of a surging Middle American counterrevolution.

Undeniably, there are great numbers of Americans who agree with the libels the Times showered on Trump and, by extension, his backers whom Hillary Clinton designated “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … deplorables.”

But by whatever slurs they are called, Middle Americans seem prepared to fight. And history shows that such people do not calmly accept the loss of what is most precious to them — the country they grew up in, the country they love.

They have turned to Trump to lead them. Why should he not, having been raised up by them, and knowing in his own heart what the establishment and the media think of him and would do to him?

Ten days in, and already it is “Game On!”

  1. Ten days in, and already it is “Game On!”

    What is exciting to me is that it will only take an exposé of 9/11 as Phil suggested in another of his great articles: “Taking Down” British Officials, or an exposé of Pizzagate, as some brilliant commenters here have suggested. If either of those happens, Game On! will quickly become Game Over!

    Oh, how delicious that would be!

    That’s almost an understatement. They wish to eradicate the white race in N. America through below replacement birthrates, increasing miscegenation between white females and non-white males, and of course through disproportionate levels of interracial violence directed against whites. Check, check and check.

    Oh, and if that’s not enough they are flooding our living space and ancestral homelands with hordes of hostile non-whites to deliver the coup de grace. This is the essence of progressivism.

    There is another reason for the reflexive howl at Trump’s travel ban. The establishment views it, probably correctly, as the first move toward a new immigration policy, built on pre-1965 foundations, and rooted in a preference for Western-Christian immigrants first.

    It’s still very early, but continued legal immigration arguably poses a greater long term threat than illegal immigration. I’m not aware of any plans by Trump to enact a moratorium or drastically decrease the 1.2 million legal immigrants (80-85% non-white) who arrive annually in “merica”.

    If he doesn’t then we’re really just spinning our wheels and the healthy, racially conscious elements of the white population will need to strongly consider secession and the creation of ethnostates over the carcass of third world America.

    "They want endless immigration from the Third World to remake America into the polyglot “universal nation” of Ben Wattenberg’s utopian vision. Trump’s followers want back the America they knew."

    Are you really that dense? Trump's followers want economic stability, not racial superiority. The working class whites who voted for him had twice gave their support to Obama.

    "They wish to eradicate the white race in N. America through below replacement birthrates, increasing miscegenation between white females and non-white males, and of course through disproportionate levels of interracial violence directed against whites."

    American whites are of their own volition to marry who they want and have as many, or as little, children as they want. They need not be shamed into your submission.

    "Oh, and if that’s not enough they are flooding our living space and ancestral homelands with hordes of hostile non-whites to deliver the coup de grace."

    These "hordes" are just imitating white Europeans, who greedily took over North America from their rightful owners. Talk about the chickens coming home to roost!

  3. There are compassionate Christians who evaluate the secular progressive agenda as inadequate to either a comprehensive understanding of or a practical compassionate resolution of the crises that have been the disastrous consequence of continuous U.S. foreign warmaking for the last 15 years.

    I would also emphasize there can be no doubt that the implementation of this executive order by the part of DHS that used to be INS was very poor – because there hasn’t been any directive or policy that this stultified and most inept of dysfunctional bureaucracies hasn’t botched for at least the last thirty years. As those with family members who include naturalized citizens and Permanent Resident cardholders subjected to indignities and delays, we know whereof we speak.

    I think that those who are citizens, and have never had personal interactions with the bureaucracy, regardless of their perspective, have no idea of just how badly run this department is, compared to others.

    Sad, too, is that the previous administration is the one that singled out these particular majority Muslim countries for discrimination in precedent executive orders, baking in a couple who we are not at war with, while exempting through political expedience others more guilty of fomenting terrorism. Yet it remains true that outside this cauldron of hatred in the Middle East, all the majority of Muslim countries around the globe, whose citizens are far more numerous, are not affected. Thus it is disingenuous to use the inflammatory label of a general “Muslim Ban.”

    Much more seriously in regards to most pronouncements either from mass media or via the twitterverse, there is a severe disconnect between the “Just Keep Shopping” and “Dow 20,000” mentalities and a country that is involved in major wars conveniently undeclared while being inexplicably obtuse to the consequences.

    There never has before been the case where during the course of war being waged, that a country interested in winning those wars at the same time accepted any considerable number of immigrants from the countries where it was at war. Logic, which has gone out the window in regards to war strategy and policy just as surely as it has in so many other areas, dictates that this is not sound. Perhaps neither Sun Tzsu nor the story of the Trojan Horse any longer are believed prescient to our addled professional political class.

    It ought to be neither surprising for those of us who know history, that consequently these wars now never end or are ever won, because those who make policy and strategy so egregiously ignore all of history’s lessons.

    Moreover, unlike previous declared wars like WWII, the current unofficial ones cannot pull the country out of its dilapidated economic situation, the brunt force of which does not fall upon either comfortably ensconced liberals or the elites at the commanding heights, but upon the millions they perceive only as deplorables in the abstraction of the precariat they dismiss as flyover country. Situated largely on the coasts, they look outward across oceans, and have lost the moral capacity to peer inward.

    During the previous declared wars, there was a general mobilization of men and industry away from existing peaceful manufacturing, employing millions of women for the first time in industry during a sudden war caused labor shortage, a crucial time which despite its destruction lasted a fraction of our endless current warfare. This time, women are already permanently deployed, peaceful manufacturing has significantly been eviscerated to offshore without normal resuscitation possible and there is a terrible glut of labor resulting in the largest non participation by able bodied adults in full time work since the Great Depression.

    Under those circumstances, it is sheer folly not to realize that mass immigration will cause dislocation and economic suffering among those who are being relentlessly pushed downward. Again this cognitive dissonance is unparalleled by any previous American standard.

    It is wonderful to be compassionate about those far away, but charity must to be efficacious begin at home, where loving one’s deplorable immediate neighbors in the heartland proves more of a challenge.

    We all ought to know that the cause of the refugee crisis is the pre-emptive warmaking and seeking Full Spectrum Dominance over the whole world, the assumption that every other nation can be subsumed in a hierarchy of satrapy globalism, through either economic warfare or shock and awe destruction.

    Any serious student of history cannot believe that mass importation of those from other not easily absorbed cultures, in such numbers, can do other than further destabilize this dire domestic situation.

    What needs to happen, which is extremely difficult given the late day engendered by so many errors and so much deception, is that the endless wars need to be wound down as quickly as possible, concomitant with massive aid in support of refugees near their countries, so that they can return there as quickly as humanly possible. Good paying jobs with benefits need to return to the United States, a very difficult task made worse by not pausing mass immigration and the fact that both the military and war industries are now outsized contributors to employment and industry that so many are dependent upon. Demobilization would cause immediate unsustainable political blowback as dismantling this structure without anything in place to reindustrialize, would cause even further economic distress with unemployment and balance of payments issues.

    I think you ought see the chasm yawning, just ahead. When “normal” legitimate politicians can no longer be credible and realistically have no answer for their peoples’ crises, that is the particular point where demagogues arise.

    It is a mistake to cast President Trump as the lumpenprole Austrian corporal who begged for alms for his crude paintings in the gutters of Vienna and drew his plans while incarcerated for armed insurrection. Mr. Trump, a businessman involved in large scale peaceful building projects, is a kind of last, worst hope for America veering off from its present imperial course, before all is lost and we lurch over an abyss, led in final desperation by those rough crouching beasts yet to come – who will have nothing but destructive fantasies to offer, because there won’t be anything else.

    We pray for the end to these wars, without which there will be no solution. And for this President and his advisors to be protected and granted the wisdom to do so.

    The old model was inter-nation-state war.

    The war that looms will probably be entirely a domestic affair. It will arrive in earnest when the bond bubble bursts...a conflagration already begun, if last summer's low in interest rates was THE low.

    The world is addicted to debt-based spending, and the 35 year bond bull market was already long in the tooth, indeed. A world with an existing ocean of debt will not remain peaceful when interest rates rise and that Bond Ocean's wealth value simultaneously evaporates.

    Due process is certainly guaranteed, but that is another reason we need a de facto wall at our southern border; that is, so that we taxpayers are not on the hook for legal fees for every economic migrant who wants to scream, "I'm a refugee" if they can actually set foot in our country. We may actually need more immigration, but that should be a calculated decision by our citizens and representatives--not a free for all where whoever can climb over or overstay their visa plays the lottery of amnesty citizenship

    I sincerely hope this is indeed a first move toward a new policy as described.

    We must return to those pre-1965 foundations, a preference for Western-Christian immigrants, if we are to rescue the great country that we knew. In fact, in light of the damage already done since the 1960s, we would be wise to limit immigration to only Western Christians.

    Perhaps then, in time, demographics will approach what they were. This might stop the decline of our culture and decimation of our middle class.

    As you may have heard, Anheuser-Busch InBev — a non-American multinational corporation — is running a pro-immigration ad during the Super Bowl. It presents a Cultural Marxist version of 19th Century immigration with young Adolphus having to endure the hate speech of his day until he finally gets the nod of acceptance from a noble Negro (who, no doubt, understands the institutional racism of America.) Then he’s welcomed to St. Louis by warm, loving Germans (who probably will become cold, hateful Nazis in next year’s ad campaign.)

    You’d think that a corporation trying to fool the dullards into buying their faux patriotism would tackle some issue other than immigration. America just had a contentious election in which the people rejected the globalist demand for more immigration. If the Budweiser Brigade wants to play up sudsy patriotism, shouldn’t it show respect for the American electoral process?

    It’s clear that speaking up on Election Day isn’t enough for the anti-White globalists. So let’s make this a Super Bowl they don’t forget. Spread your memes around now so our people are ready by game day. Here are a few to start:

    Budweiser: Buy our beer so we can call you a racist

    Bud Lite: More liberal than a SWPL

    Anheuser-Busch: Our patriotism means America Last

    Soon, there will be brands of beer, or clothing or electronics or shipping firms, etc., that will be boycotted by Rightists. Eventually, this could descend to the level of some grocery stores that cater to one side or the other, with Leftists celebrating those shops that removed pork products from their shelves in favor of exclusively Halal meats, and those that display pork products intermixed with beef and chicken who cater exclusively to Rightists.

    Leftism had a good run. I think it can be traced to the Reformation, through the English Levelers, Cromwell, the English Civil War, the Pilgrims and on through Marxism, Prohibition & Blue Laws, then onward to the Utopian folly of the mid-1960's public policies on race and immigration.

    It reached apogee in its complete disavowal of nature (in the embrace of the trans folie a plusiers), and in doing so set the stage for a long-awaited end to Cthulhu's always turning left, behaving for centuries like a corkscrew.

    The Right will rise. It has begun, because the Left was built on a foundation of rising belief in unlimited resources, a belief in the impossible. No matter how high the Left flew, its crash to Earth was insured at the outset.

    Any reason Pat chickened out here in not naming Saudi Arabia and UAE not being on the list?

    As a side note, according to Bill O’Reilly the reason Saudi Arabia is not on the list is because they are fighting Al-Qaeda in Yemen. Talk about “Fake News.” LOL

    Of the seven countries facing a 90-day ban, three are U.S.-designated state sponsors of terror, and the other four are war zones. Clearly, this is about homeland security, not religious discrimination.

    The only reason Iran is a US-designated state sponsor of terror is because of Israel. There can be no greater state sponsors of terror than the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

    President Trump is to be commended for fulfilling his campaign promises. He should also keep his promise to end the US involvement in the Middle East. As long as US and her allies continue to bomb Iraq, Yemen, and Syria the terrorism will continue to flourish. Last year Obama bombed Yemen and killed a teenage American boy. Yesterday his 8 year old sister was killed by US bombing in Yemen under President Trump.

    They are not on the list because they are not one of the '6 largest Muslim countries' that Pat referred to. Please pay attention.

    However, I agree with you about Israel the Parasite:

    "US has to stop waging wars on the Muslims on behalf of Israel. The only way America will be great again is to remove the Israeli yoke from her neck."

    The only reason the average American is more likely to agree with Israel is because they’ve had their head filled with various absurd fictions such as holocau$t propaganda, “Judeo-Christian values”, and Jews being a uniquely righteous, exceptional, and persecuted people.

    Well said MEexpert! Furthermore, the terrorists in Syria are mostly foreigners supported by the US, and were shipped there by its allies to destroy Assad’s government. That’s stated US policy and open knowledge. By what logic should Syria be on the list, if not for the same reason used for Iran: Two allies who resist American power simply to remain sovereign and independent. Is that not what Donald Trump’s supporters want for America to be, sovereign and independent of the globalists and the fifth columnists? I too wish Mr. Trump success in placing America first and making it great again, but that cannot happen so long as he and his advisers are unable or unwilling to identify their real enemies.

    The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on travel here from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.

    And Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who supported ISIS in Syria and offered to build 200 Wahhabi mosques throughout Europe, is mysteriously left off the list. Trump billed himself as and promised to be the bane of ISIS.

    Love of Trump trumps all else. It and has brought about a serious bout of muddled thinking on behalf of Pat Buchanon.
    If; as he says "Capitol Hill is Israeli occupied territory"; how can he square that with Trump's love of Israel? Also; is "The Establishment", which he opposes, not Israeli occupied territory?

  15. The future is war.

    The battle lines are drawn, and the “shoulder-shrug” togetherness of “We Are The World” in 1999 is giving way to a realization that resources are LIMITED, and those who seek open borders promise to destroy the way of life most of us (who have kids/grandkids) hoped to pass down to our descendants. We who oppose the Left are made more enraged and more committed with each action by our enemies.

    There can be no compromise.

    There will be no compromise.

    If the Left-Cult, open-borders zealots get their way, they will insure that when financial calamity arrives in the form of a credit bubble collapse, men and women who care deeply about their grandchildren will hunt down and slaughter those who now work so hard to destroy their descendants’ future.

    No one will be immune. Judges, attorneys, bishops (i.e., the Conference of Catholic Bishops) and anyone who staffed a Refugee Resettlement organization will face death from afar, for no one can survive when there are those willing to shoot them from hundreds of yards away.

    In the world of r/K evolutionary biology, it will be Open Season, No Bag Limit on rabbits.

    This is the wind leftists are sowing today. I weep for what this bakes into the future cake. I wish they would stop, I wish they could see from my eyes how their addiction to their endogenous opioids (released when they virtue-signal loudly, intending to humiliate and harm people like me) is leading to their destruction and a world of increasing chaos. But they are addicts. They are blind. They are RABBITS.

    As you may have heard, Anheuser-Busch InBev — a non-American multinational corporation — is running a pro-immigration ad during the Super Bowl. It presents a Cultural Marxist version of 19th Century immigration with young Adolphus having to endure the hate speech of his day until he finally gets the nod of acceptance from a noble Negro (who, no doubt, understands the institutional racism of America.) Then he’s welcomed to St. Louis by warm, loving Germans (who probably will become cold, hateful Nazis in next year’s ad campaign.)

    You’d think that a corporation trying to fool the dullards into buying their faux patriotism would tackle some issue other than immigration. America just had a contentious election in which the people rejected the globalist demand for more immigration. If the Budweiser Brigade wants to play up sudsy patriotism, shouldn’t it show respect for the American electoral process?

    It’s clear that speaking up on Election Day isn’t enough for the anti-White globalists. So let’s make this a Super Bowl they don’t forget. Spread your memes around now so our people are ready by game day. Here are a few to start:

    Budweiser: Buy our beer so we can call you a racist

    Bud Lite: More liberal than a SWPL

    Anheuser-Busch: Our patriotism means America Last

    Better buy Bud now, cause when we bring in the Muslims, it’s Prohibition 2.0

    Budweiser: Is your Super Bowl party a safe space for rapefugees?

    The entire USA is being Balkanized.

    Soon, there will be movies only hard-core leftist rabbits will choose to see.

    Soon, there will be brands of beer, or clothing or electronics or shipping firms, etc., that will be boycotted by Rightists. Eventually, this could descend to the level of some grocery stores that cater to one side or the other, with Leftists celebrating those shops that removed pork products from their shelves in favor of exclusively Halal meats, and those that display pork products intermixed with beef and chicken who cater exclusively to Rightists.

    Leftism had a good run. I think it can be traced to the Reformation, through the English Levelers, Cromwell, the English Civil War, the Pilgrims and on through Marxism, Prohibition & Blue Laws, then onward to the Utopian folly of the mid-1960′s public policies on race and immigration.

    It reached apogee in its complete disavowal of nature (in the embrace of the trans folie a plusiers), and in doing so set the stage for a long-awaited end to Cthulhu’s always turning left, behaving for centuries like a corkscrew.

    The Right will rise. It has begun, because the Left was built on a foundation of rising belief in unlimited resources, a belief in the impossible. No matter how high the Left flew, its crash to Earth was insured at the outset.

    So here we are, and Corporate executives are stupid enough to double-down on the Left just as the Left has begun a century of decline.

    The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on travel here from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.
     
    And Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who supported ISIS in Syria and offered to build 200 Wahhabi mosques throughout Europe, is mysteriously left off the list. Trump billed himself as and promised to be the bane of ISIS.

    The Trump admin claims in the case of SA that this is because they are fighting Al Qaeda in Yemen, but it looks to me like they are playing politics and seeing only what they want.

    I think/hope he’s going after low-hanging fruit at this point.

    Just had a great session in improving the old archery from an old school outdoorsman last weekend. The man has killed two bears - with compound bow (thing's like a 7-8 pound beast) - no joke, this guy! And he ate one of them - took him a few months though. Some bears eat people - some people eat bears...

    Anyway - keep those hands steady!

    There are compassionate Christians who evaluate the secular progressive agenda as inadequate to either a comprehensive understanding of or a practical compassionate resolution of the crises that have been the disastrous consequence of continuous U.S. foreign warmaking for the last 15 years.

    I would also emphasize there can be no doubt that the implementation of this executive order by the part of DHS that used to be INS was very poor – because there hasn’t been any directive or policy that this stultified and most inept of dysfunctional bureaucracies hasn’t botched for at least the last thirty years. As those with family members who include naturalized citizens and Permanent Resident cardholders subjected to indignities and delays, we know whereof we speak.

    I think that those who are citizens, and have never had personal interactions with the bureaucracy, regardless of their perspective, have no idea of just how badly run this department is, compared to others.

    Sad, too, is that the previous administration is the one that singled out these particular majority Muslim countries for discrimination in precedent executive orders, baking in a couple who we are not at war with, while exempting through political expedience others more guilty of fomenting terrorism. Yet it remains true that outside this cauldron of hatred in the Middle East, all the majority of Muslim countries around the globe, whose citizens are far more numerous, are not affected. Thus it is disingenuous to use the inflammatory label of a general "Muslim Ban."

    Much more seriously in regards to most pronouncements either from mass media or via the twitterverse, there is a severe disconnect between the “Just Keep Shopping” and “Dow 20,000” mentalities and a country that is involved in major wars conveniently undeclared while being inexplicably obtuse to the consequences.

    There never has before been the case where during the course of war being waged, that a country interested in winning those wars at the same time accepted any considerable number of immigrants from the countries where it was at war. Logic, which has gone out the window in regards to war strategy and policy just as surely as it has in so many other areas, dictates that this is not sound. Perhaps neither Sun Tzsu nor the story of the Trojan Horse any longer are believed prescient to our addled professional political class.

    It ought to be neither surprising for those of us who know history, that consequently these wars now never end or are ever won, because those who make policy and strategy so egregiously ignore all of history’s lessons.

    Moreover, unlike previous declared wars like WWII, the current unofficial ones cannot pull the country out of its dilapidated economic situation, the brunt force of which does not fall upon either comfortably ensconced liberals or the elites at the commanding heights, but upon the millions they perceive only as deplorables in the abstraction of the precariat they dismiss as flyover country. Situated largely on the coasts, they look outward across oceans, and have lost the moral capacity to peer inward.

    During the previous declared wars, there was a general mobilization of men and industry away from existing peaceful manufacturing, employing millions of women for the first time in industry during a sudden war caused labor shortage, a crucial time which despite its destruction lasted a fraction of our endless current warfare. This time, women are already permanently deployed, peaceful manufacturing has significantly been eviscerated to offshore without normal resuscitation possible and there is a terrible glut of labor resulting in the largest non participation by able bodied adults in full time work since the Great Depression.

    Under those circumstances, it is sheer folly not to realize that mass immigration will cause dislocation and economic suffering among those who are being relentlessly pushed downward. Again this cognitive dissonance is unparalleled by any previous American standard.

    It is wonderful to be compassionate about those far away, but charity must to be efficacious begin at home, where loving one’s deplorable immediate neighbors in the heartland proves more of a challenge.

    We all ought to know that the cause of the refugee crisis is the pre-emptive warmaking and seeking Full Spectrum Dominance over the whole world, the assumption that every other nation can be subsumed in a hierarchy of satrapy globalism, through either economic warfare or shock and awe destruction.

    Any serious student of history cannot believe that mass importation of those from other not easily absorbed cultures, in such numbers, can do other than further destabilize this dire domestic situation.

    What needs to happen, which is extremely difficult given the late day engendered by so many errors and so much deception, is that the endless wars need to be wound down as quickly as possible, concomitant with massive aid in support of refugees near their countries, so that they can return there as quickly as humanly possible. Good paying jobs with benefits need to return to the United States, a very difficult task made worse by not pausing mass immigration and the fact that both the military and war industries are now outsized contributors to employment and industry that so many are dependent upon. Demobilization would cause immediate unsustainable political blowback as dismantling this structure without anything in place to reindustrialize, would cause even further economic distress with unemployment and balance of payments issues.

    I think you ought see the chasm yawning, just ahead. When “normal” legitimate politicians can no longer be credible and realistically have no answer for their peoples’ crises, that is the particular point where demagogues arise.

    It is a mistake to cast President Trump as the lumpenprole Austrian corporal who begged for alms for his crude paintings in the gutters of Vienna and drew his plans while incarcerated for armed insurrection. Mr. Trump, a businessman involved in large scale peaceful building projects, is a kind of last, worst hope for America veering off from its present imperial course, before all is lost and we lurch over an abyss, led in final desperation by those rough crouching beasts yet to come – who will have nothing but destructive fantasies to offer, because there won’t be anything else.

    We pray for the end to these wars, without which there will be no solution. And for this President and his advisors to be protected and granted the wisdom to do so.

    The old model was inter-nation-state war.

    The war that looms will probably be entirely a domestic affair. It will arrive in earnest when the bond bubble bursts…a conflagration already begun, if last summer’s low in interest rates was THE low.

    The world is addicted to debt-based spending, and the 35 year bond bull market was already long in the tooth, indeed. A world with an existing ocean of debt will not remain peaceful when interest rates rise and that Bond Ocean’s wealth value simultaneously evaporates.

    Serious question DC; you and others keep saying "just wait until the bubble pops and interest rates rise" but from what I've read, interest rates can stay low indefinitely. Sure, eventually all this debt will have to be repaid but that might not be for decades, or longer.

    Do you have a plan B in case things just keep humming along as they are now? And for the record nothing would make me happier than seeing the whole rotten thing burn, I just don't see it happening any time soon.

    Call me a “Cultural Marxist” or worse if you must...
     
    I must. If you do a little research, you'll discover that the leading members of the FS - including Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Friedrich Pollock, Erich Fromm - were very keen on promoting cultural diversity for very strategic reasons. They were so determined to prevent fascism from rearing its ugly head in another Western nation that they prescribed, among other things, radical inclusion for these Western countries.

    Now how likely is it that non-Western countries (e.g., China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia or Israel) will embrace the concept of radical inclusion? Let me provide you with a clue. The concept of radical inclusion was recently put forward by rabbi Matt Rosenberg when he invited the alt-right Richard Spencer to study the Torah with him. Here is a quick summary of their exchange:

    Rabbi – “My tradition teaches a message of radical inclusion and love. Will you sit down and learn Torah with me, and learn love?”

    Spencer – “Do you really want radical inclusion into the State of Israel? And by that I mean radical inclusion. Maybe all of the Middle East could go move in to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Would you really want that?”

    Rosenberg was silent.

    Spencer – “You’re not answering,”

    Rabbi – “I’m not answering,”

    Spencer – “Jews exist precisely because you did not assimilate,” Spencer went on. “That is why Jews are a coherent people with a history and a culture and a future. It’s because you had a sense of yourselves. I respect that about you. I want my people to have that same sense of themselves.”

    http://mondoweiss.net/2016/12/losing-debate-israel/
     
    Tell you what, Diogenes. You first convince the people of these other countries (China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, or Israel) to embrace radical inclusion and if you are successful you can then try convincing the people of Western societies.

    Question:

    Are humans discontinuously different from all other animals? Do you believe humans are unlike all other animals whose behavior, no matter how complex, is dictated by their genetic code?

    Or do you think parrots behave like parrots and finches behave like finches for reasons not wholly resting on the differences (no matter how minor) in their respective genetic codes? Do you think that a parrot raised exclusively among finches would behave like a finch? Do you think genetic coding stops at morphology and ignores behavior, when we are now learning that a majority of human genes express exclusively in the brain?

    I don't know what you are, but I know what you're not: a biologist.

    The central core of Leftism is the denial that there is a preset "human nature." All leftism is based on creating "better humans," a project only possible if mankind is malleable clay.

    Nothing! I don't have a problem with racial diversity but racists do. All of humanity originated from a common African ancestor but geographic dispersion and long periods of reproductive isolation resulted in the evolution of racial adaptations. The Human species is no longer constrained by geographic isolation and over time racial gene pools will disappear altogether by genetic mixing unless of course racists go to great efforts to preserve racial differences.

White Americans have a long history of racial warfare and hatred towards: Amer-Indians, Negros, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Koreans, Afghans, Philippinos and dark skinned Arab ,etc. All of these people naturally hate the white race as well for the reasons given.

    Of course I suspect you thought I think human wars will disappear when races disappear but unfortunately humans have found many other reasons to kill each other.

    Not likely, lamb chop, you might want to take a look at Forecasting Intelligence and a post dated 14/07 last year, somewhat melodramatically titled ‘winter is coming’ and if that’s too white-nationalist, fake news for you, there was a piece in the Guardian - the limits to growth report (1972) was right, techno-industrial society is nearing collapse.

    As you may have heard, Anheuser-Busch InBev — a non-American multinational corporation — is running a pro-immigration ad during the Super Bowl. It presents a Cultural Marxist version of 19th Century immigration with young Adolphus having to endure the hate speech of his day until he finally gets the nod of acceptance from a noble Negro (who, no doubt, understands the institutional racism of America.) Then he’s welcomed to St. Louis by warm, loving Germans (who probably will become cold, hateful Nazis in next year’s ad campaign.)

    You’d think that a corporation trying to fool the dullards into buying their faux patriotism would tackle some issue other than immigration. America just had a contentious election in which the people rejected the globalist demand for more immigration. If the Budweiser Brigade wants to play up sudsy patriotism, shouldn’t it show respect for the American electoral process?

    It’s clear that speaking up on Election Day isn’t enough for the anti-White globalists. So let’s make this a Super Bowl they don’t forget. Spread your memes around now so our people are ready by game day. Here are a few to start:

    Budweiser: Buy our beer so we can call you a racist

    Bud Lite: More liberal than a SWPL

    Anheuser-Busch: Our patriotism means America Last

    Better buy Bud now, cause when we bring in the Muslims, it’s Prohibition 2.0

    Budweiser: Is your Super Bowl party a safe space for rapefugees?

    Nothing! I don’t have a problem with racial diversity but racists do. All of humanity originated from a common African ancestor but geographic dispersion and long periods of reproductive isolation resulted in the evolution of racial adaptations. The Human species is no longer constrained by geographic isolation and over time racial gene pools will disappear altogether by genetic mixing unless of course racists go to great efforts to preserve racial differences.

    I must. If you do a little research, you’ll discover that the leading members of the FS – including Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Friedrich Pollock, Erich Fromm – were very keen on promoting cultural diversity for very strategic reasons. They were so determined to prevent fascism from rearing its ugly head in another Western nation that they prescribed, among other things, radical inclusion for these Western countries.

    Now how likely is it that non-Western countries (e.g., China, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia or Israel) will embrace the concept of radical inclusion? Let me provide you with a clue. The concept of radical inclusion was recently put forward by rabbi Matt Rosenberg when he invited the alt-right Richard Spencer to study the Torah with him. Here is a quick summary of their exchange:

    Rabbi – “My tradition teaches a message of radical inclusion and love. Will you sit down and learn Torah with me, and learn love?”

    Spencer – “Do you really want radical inclusion into the State of Israel? And by that I mean radical inclusion. Maybe all of the Middle East could go move in to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. Would you really want that?”

    Rosenberg was silent.

    Spencer – “You’re not answering,”

    Rabbi – “I’m not answering,”

    Spencer – “Jews exist precisely because you did not assimilate,” Spencer went on. “That is why Jews are a coherent people with a history and a culture and a future. It’s because you had a sense of yourselves. I respect that about you. I want my people to have that same sense of themselves.”

    This ban, went the weekend wail, is the “Muslim ban” of the Trump campaign. But how so, when not one of the six largest Muslim countries — Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Turkey — was on the list? Missing also were three-dozen other Muslim countries.
     
    Any reason Pat chickened out here in not naming Saudi Arabia and UAE not being on the list?

    As a side note, according to Bill O'Reilly the reason Saudi Arabia is not on the list is because they are fighting Al-Qaeda in Yemen. Talk about "Fake News." LOL

    Of the seven countries facing a 90-day ban, three are U.S.-designated state sponsors of terror, and the other four are war zones. Clearly, this is about homeland security, not religious discrimination.
     
    The only reason Iran is a US-designated state sponsor of terror is because of Israel. There can be no greater state sponsors of terror than the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.

    President Trump is to be commended for fulfilling his campaign promises. He should also keep his promise to end the US involvement in the Middle East. As long as US and her allies continue to bomb Iraq, Yemen, and Syria the terrorism will continue to flourish. Last year Obama bombed Yemen and killed a teenage American boy. Yesterday his 8 year old sister was killed by US bombing in Yemen under President Trump.

    US has to stop waging wars on the Muslims on behalf of Israel. The only way America will be great again is to remove the Israeli yoke from her neck

    “Any reason Pat chickened out here in not naming Saudi Arabia and UAE not being on the list?”

    They are not on the list because they are not one of the ’6 largest Muslim countries’ that Pat referred to. Please pay attention.

    However, I agree with you about Israel the Parasite:

    “US has to stop waging wars on the Muslims on behalf of Israel. The only way America will be great again is to remove the Israeli yoke from her neck.”

    The only reason the average American is more likely to agree with Israel is because they’ve had their head filled with various absurd fictions such as holocau$t propaganda, “Judeo-Christian values”, and Jews being a uniquely righteous, exceptional, and persecuted people.

  41. Personally, I never liked Trump’s Muslim Ban proposal from the beginning.

    He could have called for much more careful vetting of people from certain nations, but this BAN on entire nations seems extreme and demagogic.

    Also, it’s such an easy gift to the other side that comes across as more reasonable even though they are lying lowlifes because they were silent about the US neo-imperialist policy in MENA that led to the refugee crisis.

    This was a most unnecessary controversy.

    Trump should have focused MORE ON the US foreign policy that led to the refugee mess, and then he could have said he will call for extra-vigilance for people from certain nations.

    He could have avoided this mess.

  43. And what exactly is WORTH holding onto so preciously? The implementation of Technocracy these past 40 years has proven to be a total failure, but despite that, they forge ahead, oblivious to their own misdirected divine right of governance.

    “What we’re talking about here is the Triumph of the Technocrats. There are multiple levels to this triumph of the technocrat class:

    1. The dumbing down of the Technocrat Class via a Higher Education system that optimizes technocrat specialization at the expense of real-world business experience and broad-based knowledge.

    As a result, the technocrat class has a very high opinion of its intelligence and judgment because it has no idea how little it actually knows or understands. It believes Higher Education’s hype that specialization has given it a superior understanding that entitles it to control and power.

    This overweening belief in its own superiority sets the stage for hubris and catastrophically ungrounded decisions.

    The rise of computers (albeit primitive by today’s standards) enabled the first Technocrat romance with “big data”, i.e. a reliance on data analysis to make decisions about a real world that cannot be reduced to quantification without a loss of decision quality and humility.

    This is how we ended up with a nation in which Technocrats with no real-world military combat experience are running America’s wars and Technocrats who have never started a single company or paid a single employee with their own money are running America’s economy.

    2. As outlined in How Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul, the Liberal Establishment melded Corporate-banking cartels and the central state into one centrally planned, technocrat-controlled cartel-state system. This has created millions of well-paying, protected Technocrat jobs in an expansive Deep State that stretches from universities to the corporate media to the federal agencies to Silicon Valley cartels and monopolies.”

    You are right, it's full of ultra-intelligent people who have no culture, no idea what culture is about, and can not think in the sense that it was taken to be real thinking in the ages of culture.

    The point is that to be savants, or true artists/scientists/thinkers, a lot more features are needed in a brain than high or veryg.
    The basketball analogy is well-chosen: how many among the tall become want to play basketball? How many of them become serious players? And how many will play in the NBA?

    Of course to be productive for the country, or the company that has hired you, or the army, you don't need to be a thinking individual in the real cultural way; actually, a culturally thinking cog is inferior to an unthinking cog for their purpose.

    I have had to stay in computer-programmer-filled environments, and it has been the most culturally humiliating experience ever, because our age has the characteristics that perfectly boost the self-opinion of high-IQ technicians without culture and the ability to think, and this makes sure they see themselves as highly cultured people with "ideas" and an open mind, while, unluckily, reality tells a different story.

    And as they can't handle and inspect ideas, while they are eager to assure themselves and the others around of their intellectual high status, they are extremely easy to manipulate for the people who have thinking, and using words as a manipulation device, as their main trade (journalists, opinion-makers, demagogues).
    These computer programmers are the first to spot "misogyny" "white supremacy", and all else that they are programmed to spot all the time.
    They want to make sure they are up to par in the field of ideas, lol, so they scan the (apparently) cultural environment, and pick what's winning (that's the best decision when you have no idea about matters).

    The old model was inter-nation-state war.

    The war that looms will probably be entirely a domestic affair. It will arrive in earnest when the bond bubble bursts...a conflagration already begun, if last summer's low in interest rates was THE low.

    The world is addicted to debt-based spending, and the 35 year bond bull market was already long in the tooth, indeed. A world with an existing ocean of debt will not remain peaceful when interest rates rise and that Bond Ocean's wealth value simultaneously evaporates.

    Serious question DC; you and others keep saying “just wait until the bubble pops and interest rates rise” but from what I’ve read, interest rates can stay low indefinitely. Sure, eventually all this debt will have to be repaid but that might not be for decades, or longer.

    Do you have a plan B in case things just keep humming along as they are now? And for the record nothing would make me happier than seeing the whole rotten thing burn, I just don’t see it happening any time soon.

I'd be a muli-multi millionaire now had I known then what I know now (and that's not assuming I'd have just bought fistfulls of S&P500 futures contracts and AAPL call options these past 22 years.)

    Those who say rates can remain near zero indefinitely must be dumber than a bag of nails. Of course, most of them are also of Francis Fukyama's persuasion, that "liberal democracy" is the apotheosis of human social organization and a permanent fixture of humanity for the rest of Time.

    I can't tell if these people are really that ignorant, or if they just think the rest of us are really that stupid.

    22 years is a long time to be wrong. Trust me, I have the scars to prove it. The model I follow is, (since I follow it still) correct in my view. I just had to have my face ground into the fact that it is a probabilistic model and Mr. Market (and Ms. Reality) can flip "heads" one iteration after another.

    Plan A: Things muddle through pretty much as they are.
    Plan B: The credit bubble bursts, lots of hardship occurs, wild socio-political trends develop but the banking system remains in place.
    Plan C: All of Plan B, even worse socio-political mayhem, and the banking system essentially collapses.
    Plan D: The Zombie Apocalypse.

    I don't do Plan D, because prepping for it is mutually exclusive to the other three Plans and I have no idea what's coming. No one does.

    I do have some resources in each of the other three Plans, realizing that whatever happens, anything deployed to the Plans "above" what arrives will be lost. My Plan A stuff (pensions in which I'm vested) will surely be gone if Plan B or C occurs, ditto anything I own in banks/brokerages if Plan C occurs.

    There are no set-and-forget action plans now. Too much will change.

    If you want to read more of why I'm quite certain that this, too, will change sooner or later, I left a comment on Mike Whitney's new piece on how we were screwed by Obama's "recovery" which (assuming it makes it past moderation) lays out the basic economics of what has really occurred.

    At the risk of seeming arrogant, I think very few people really grasp this reality. OTOH, my insight is largely plagiarized from Robert Prechter, Jr. (credit where credit is due) with a few nuances added by me.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    PS: My actual expectation is that we get Plan B (likely to begin this summer, with it bottoming maybe in 3-4 years) and after a period of recovery, we get Plan C or even a mild Plan D by the 2030's. These things take time to work out, and usually the financial calamity occurs, then the social calamity, with an intervening period of relief ("Whew, at least the worst is over") before the history-making catastrophe occurs.

    In Turkey, at least, the natives say it's only wine that is banned in the Koran. This is probably because lots of Turks acquire the taste for beer in Germany. For a while, Turkey was the only Muslim country that had a state-owned brewer, Efes Bira.

    And a 90-day ban has been imposed on travel here from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.

    Where’s Afghanistan on the list? Omar Mateen was a second generation Afghan American borne of a refugee father. According to both conservative and liberal theology, any individual with a third world racial profile born on U.S. soil is as American as apple pie and wouldn’t dare consider killing its citizens or acting against our interests. Because we have magic dirt, McDonald’s and Dancing with the Stars.

    On second thought this temporary ban does not go far enough and it should become an indefinite moratorium on all Muslim refugees and immigrants. After all it’s Muslims who are the most susceptible to radicalization by ISIS, Al Qaeda and other extremist groups.

    Strangely, ISIS’s recruitment techniques and propaganda don’t seem to resonate with Catholics, Baptists, Seventh Day Adventists, Hindus or Buddhists. Or, Pagans and Asatruists for that matter.

    Charming. You must be one of those misguided White Supremacist's who voted Trump into office.
    While you may bask in Trump's sunshine, for now, you are most assuredly destined to be buried under desert sands, like your vain namesake in Shelly's poem, trodden upon by future Muslim hordes.
    Yes, you are quite right I won't recognize my white ass from the many offensive white asses who all look, act and think the same as you!

    “where racial differences will become homogenized worldwide and racial polymorphism will be extinguished and the result will be the betterment of humankind”
    Not likely, lamb chop, you might want to take a look at Forecasting Intelligence and a post dated 14/07 last year, somewhat melodramatically titled ‘winter is coming’ and if that’s too white-nationalist, fake news for you, there was a piece in the Guardian – the limits to growth report (1972) was right, techno-industrial society is nearing collapse.
    There’s not going to be a big vanilla & chocolate f**k fiesta Diogenes, and statements like this: “you are most assuredly destined to be buried under desert sands, like your vain namesake in Shelly’s poem, trodden upon by future Muslim hordes” well, that goes two ways, and you might find yourself under those sands too. When collapse occurs all your ethno-masochism and claims to be a ‘good white’ won’t increase your chances of survival at all, only lessen them. The Dindus will make short work of you. But maybe you want it that way.

    Trump's Muslim Immigration Ban on selected countries is but a futile and token gesture designed to appease his constituents, it's even hypocritical because it omits Saudi Arabia which is the biggest supporter of Jihadi Terrorism in the world. It's time to deal with your primitive impulses and adapt to a force greater than Trump and his acolytes.
    Call me a "Cultural Marxist" or worse if you must but your hopes and desires are misguided and harmful and are in need of a change.

    Well, I’ll agree that Saudi Arabia should be on the list, as should Pakistan for that matter. And the ban should be indefinite, not two or three months.

    When the S(hit) from Trump’s Jan 27 EO HTF, one couldn’t avoid wondering “Hmmm… now where have I seen that list before…?”
    Oh yeah, Wesley Clark talked about “taking down 7 countries in 5 yrs”:

    A decade and a half later, things ain’t lookin’ like they worked out for those who would “create new realities” in the Middle East. In fact, their megalomaniacal regime change schemes have crashed and burned along with their million victims.

    Here’s some thoughts…
    This EO is only tangentially connected to what most people think of as “refugees”. Operationally, it’s basically saying “So long, and thanks for all the fish” to the Zempire’s foreign political operatives associated with its regime change agenda.

    By 2016 the Bush/Obama grand planners realized that their plan had collapsed, leaving their 5th column compradores in the target countries in a tough spot. Traitors to their respective countries, they could certainly expect retribution, but it’s politically and financially cheaper to abandon those unwanted in the US.
    That’s what this EO does. Using the “extreme vetting” mechanism, it sets up a gauntlet that allows those whom the Administration may find useful in the future through, and abandons the rest.

    The Zempire never cared much about collateral damage, whether suffered by its allies, or its enemies. It has always said: “So long, and thanks for all the fish”.

    Serious question DC; you and others keep saying "just wait until the bubble pops and interest rates rise" but from what I've read, interest rates can stay low indefinitely. Sure, eventually all this debt will have to be repaid but that might not be for decades, or longer.

    Do you have a plan B in case things just keep humming along as they are now? And for the record nothing would make me happier than seeing the whole rotten thing burn, I just don't see it happening any time soon.

    Do you have a plan B?

    Excellent point. Full disclosure—I expected this thing to go Full Poseidon Adventure 22 full years ago. My timing SUCKS, and I’ll be among the few who can admit that. I’ve paid dearly for unwarranted faith in my insights. I’d be a muli-multi millionaire now had I known then what I know now (and that’s not assuming I’d have just bought fistfulls of S&P500 futures contracts and AAPL call options these past 22 years.)

    Those who say rates can remain near zero indefinitely must be dumber than a bag of nails. Of course, most of them are also of Francis Fukyama’s persuasion, that “liberal democracy” is the apotheosis of human social organization and a permanent fixture of humanity for the rest of Time.

    I can’t tell if these people are really that ignorant, or if they just think the rest of us are really that stupid.

    22 years is a long time to be wrong. Trust me, I have the scars to prove it. The model I follow is, (since I follow it still) correct in my view. I just had to have my face ground into the fact that it is a probabilistic model and Mr. Market (and Ms. Reality) can flip “heads” one iteration after another.

    If you watched someone flip heads ten times in a row, would you conclude that every future coinflip will be heads? Me neither. Premises are everything. As is timing. (grin)

    Question:

    Are humans discontinuously different from all other animals? Do you believe humans are unlike all other animals whose behavior, no matter how complex, is dictated by their genetic code?

    Or do you think parrots behave like parrots and finches behave like finches for reasons not wholly resting on the differences (no matter how minor) in their respective genetic codes? Do you think that a parrot raised exclusively among finches would behave like a finch? Do you think genetic coding stops at morphology and ignores behavior, when we are now learning that a majority of human genes express exclusively in the brain?

    I don’t know what you are, but I know what you’re not: a biologist.

    The central core of Leftism is the denial that there is a preset “human nature.” All leftism is based on creating “better humans,” a project only possible if mankind is malleable clay.

    They want endless immigration from the Third World to remake America into the polyglot “universal nation” of Ben Wattenberg’s utopian vision. Trump’s followers want back the America they knew.
     
    That's almost an understatement. They wish to eradicate the white race in N. America through below replacement birthrates, increasing miscegenation between white females and non-white males, and of course through disproportionate levels of interracial violence directed against whites. Check, check and check.

    Oh, and if that's not enough they are flooding our living space and ancestral homelands with hordes of hostile non-whites to deliver the coup de grace. This is the essence of progressivism.


    There is another reason for the reflexive howl at Trump’s travel ban. The establishment views it, probably correctly, as the first move toward a new immigration policy, built on pre-1965 foundations, and rooted in a preference for Western-Christian immigrants first.
     
    It's still very early, but continued legal immigration arguably poses a greater long term threat than illegal immigration. I'm not aware of any plans by Trump to enact a moratorium or drastically decrease the 1.2 million legal immigrants (80-85% non-white) who arrive annually in "merica".

    If he doesn't then we're really just spinning our wheels and the healthy, racially conscious elements of the white population will need to strongly consider secession and the creation of ethnostates over the carcass of third world America.

    “They want endless immigration from the Third World to remake America into the polyglot “universal nation” of Ben Wattenberg’s utopian vision. Trump’s followers want back the America they knew.”

    Are you really that dense? Trump’s followers want economic stability, not racial superiority. The working class whites who voted for him had twice gave their support to Obama.

    “They wish to eradicate the white race in N. America through below replacement birthrates, increasing miscegenation between white females and non-white males, and of course through disproportionate levels of interracial violence directed against whites.”

    American whites are of their own volition to marry who they want and have as many, or as little, children as they want. They need not be shamed into your submission.

    “Oh, and if that’s not enough they are flooding our living space and ancestral homelands with hordes of hostile non-whites to deliver the coup de grace.”

    Corry, I'm glad you mentioned 1) choosing who to marry and 2) what happened to the people who occupied North America before smallpox.

    To the first, I wonder why a woman would choose to make children genetically predisposed to be less intelligent and more uncontrollable than her "tribe." I guess that's what happens when people begin to think such things no longer matter to the long run, or lose the ability to so much as consider "the long run."

    Maybe you count yourself among those who think genetics don't matter, that "we're all the same," and that Blank Slate is real? I didn't get that from you in the past, so....help us out here.

    To the second, you state this yet you question resistance now to replacement by those targeted for it? I know you're trying to make some sort of moral argument there, but from a practical standpoint you make our point for us.

    Nice to have allies, even grudging ones.

    Are you really that dense? Trump’s followers want economic stability, not racial superiority.
     
    No, but you obviously are. Trump emphasized building a border wall and deporting illegals throughout the primaries and the general and supporters often chanted "build that wall" at rallies. Sure, white Americans want economic stability but they also don't want their nation to demographically resemble Brazil either.

    The working class whites who voted for him had twice gave their support to Obama
     
    It's called negro fatigue and they finally realized they'd been had by that black shyster named Hussein Obama who jettisoned the white working class for the black and brown underclass. Democrats paid a price for this risky strategy in 2016.

    American whites are of their own volition to marry who they want and have as many, or as little, children as they want. They need not be shamed into your submission.

     

    Ok, so whites will take over the Israeli media, television and cinema and encourage Jewish females to reject Jewish men in favor of Arab Muslims and black Africans and when the propaganda finally starts taking effect we'll sit back and proclaim it's "of their own volition".

    These “hordes” are just imitating white Europeans, who greedily took over North America from their rightful owners. Talk about the chickens coming home to roost!
     
    That's real original. You mean the "rightful" owners who came to N. America via the Bering land bridge and who routinely killed, tortured, displaced and victimized each other long before whitey arrived?

    For the sake of argument let's assume you're right. Then that means the Muslim Turks must vacate Turkey and return to the steppes of Asia, Israeli Jews must vacate Israel and return to Europe and Russia, Middle East Muslims must relocate to Saudi Arabia and return the Middle East to Christendom and on and on.

    Virtually every nation was founded by one group displacing another group (or groups) and claiming the territory for themselves. The conquest of America by white Europeans is not unique in this regard.

    There are millions of white people who are "midwits", and you offer support for murdering them merely because of their low IQ? Wow, just wow.

    I guess you’ve never seen the movie, “True Lies.”

    That, or you have zero appreciation for tongue-in-cheek humor.

    Not to worry, Corry, there will always be tasks not worth automating for people like you. Think of it like a collective of cottage industries….

    [rolling on the floor, laughing my xss off.]

    For the record, the midwits whose company tires me are those who insist they are the wise stewards of all wisdom (yes, from the department of redundancy department on purpose, since you seem a little dense today.) A person who espouses an absurd, but oh-so-high-minded position shouldn’t make a claim to intellectual superiority without the expectation of insult.

    True, but I'm still trying to figure out where to stand in relation to their target.

    On another note, we know they'll all be deaf after the first round or two, given that the Boob Tube informs them that people can shoot guns indoors, or do mag dumps from rifles, and then have a whispered conversation.

    Joking aside, I think most rabbits will simply sit down and starve. It'll be one blue-haired, mummified corpse after another. (Of course, it may take a while; some of those land whales might last months.)

    Behind their target of course, almost anyone gets hit but them, and even if they are hit, they slow the bullets down.

    Are you really that dense? Trump's followers want economic stability, not racial superiority. The working class whites who voted for him had twice gave their support to Obama.

    "They wish to eradicate the white race in N. America through below replacement birthrates, increasing miscegenation between white females and non-white males, and of course through disproportionate levels of interracial violence directed against whites."

    American whites are of their own volition to marry who they want and have as many, or as little, children as they want. They need not be shamed into your submission.

    "Oh, and if that’s not enough they are flooding our living space and ancestral homelands with hordes of hostile non-whites to deliver the coup de grace."

    These "hordes" are just imitating white Europeans, who greedily took over North America from their rightful owners. Talk about the chickens coming home to roost!

    The chickens should be careful where they roost, bird brains who are sky lined are ten times easier to hit than sitting ducks.

    Corry, I’m glad you mentioned 1) choosing who to marry and 2) what happened to the people who occupied North America before smallpox.

    To the first, I wonder why a woman would choose to make children genetically predisposed to be less intelligent and more uncontrollable than her “tribe.” I guess that’s what happens when people begin to think such things no longer matter to the long run, or lose the ability to so much as consider “the long run.”

    Maybe you count yourself among those who think genetics don’t matter, that “we’re all the same,” and that Blank Slate is real? I didn’t get that from you in the past, so….help us out here.

    To the second, you state this yet you question resistance now to replacement by those targeted for it? I know you’re trying to make some sort of moral argument there, but from a practical standpoint you make our point for us.

    There is another reason for the reflexive howl at Trump’s travel ban. The establishment views it, probably correctly, as the first move toward a new immigration policy, built on pre-1965 foundations, and rooted in a preference for Western-Christian immigrants first.
     
    I sincerely hope this is indeed a first move toward a new policy as described.

    We must return to those pre-1965 foundations, a preference for Western-Christian immigrants, if we are to rescue the great country that we knew. In fact, in light of the damage already done since the 1960s, we would be wise to limit immigration to only Western Christians.

    Perhaps then, in time, demographics will approach what they were. This might stop the decline of our culture and decimation of our middle class.

    Already the rector of our church (a woman; we’re Episcopalian, so, you know, basically not even a religion anymore), has sent around an e-mail to members of the congregation that discriminating in favor of christians isn’t christian etc. And we aren’t even talking in general, just for christians targeted obviously disproportionately by ISIS, etc.

    Question:

    Are humans discontinuously different from all other animals? Do you believe humans are unlike all other animals whose behavior, no matter how complex, is dictated by their genetic code?

    Or do you think parrots behave like parrots and finches behave like finches for reasons not wholly resting on the differences (no matter how minor) in their respective genetic codes? Do you think that a parrot raised exclusively among finches would behave like a finch? Do you think genetic coding stops at morphology and ignores behavior, when we are now learning that a majority of human genes express exclusively in the brain?

    I don't know what you are, but I know what you're not: a biologist.

    The central core of Leftism is the denial that there is a preset "human nature." All leftism is based on creating "better humans," a project only possible if mankind is malleable clay.

    I consider this so phenomenally ignorant that as rich as is the English language, words still fail to convey my contempt for the intellects of those who espouse it. Sadly, humanity is afflicted with such "thought leaders" worse than any stray mutt was afflicted with fleas.

    If I recall correctly I have had the misfortune of encountering your contemptuous comments in the past.
    My answer is NO to both of your questions.

    I have had a life long interest in evolutionary biology and my bookshelves are stocked with many of such books .

    I suggest you read John Passmore’s book “The Perfectibility of Man”[1970], now out of print, wherein you will find a long and varied history of the concept by thinkers of various persuasions but not exclusively by “Leftists”.

    I o longer subscribe to the enlightenment project of human perfectibility as I have become cynical just like you.

    Then you assume that people on the higher side of intelligence, self-control and commonweal order will produce your uniform blob of humanity by intermarrying with morons?

    I suppose....our European ancestors did apparently interbreed with Denisovans and Neanderthals prior to the latters' exit, stage left, and seem to have obtained some useful attributes from the mix.

    Today's lingering embrace of the ridiculous notion of Unlimited Resources still animates some people's willingness to "date down." Not many, but some, I suppose, given the tsunami of mixed race couples presented us by Madison Avenue (selling to whom, I must ask?)

    For a person whose bookshelves are full of biology texts, you seem studiously unfamiliar with what happens when multiple subspecies compete for the exact same environmental niche.

    Globalism (a one-niche world) was NEVER going to go well for those who can't compete under modern conditions; if anything, Mankind is entering a period of much more pervasive culling of the weak from the species. I don't know if me and mine are will make that cut, too many variables to even guess, but I do tend to think people with IQ's below 80 will be culled without mercy by Nature. Only a return to complete barbarism and the absence of technology would favor dull-witted but physically strong peoples, or if the Global Warmist cult is correct and the entire planet becomes tropical and favors blacks heterozygous for sickle-cell trait.

    I'm bettering that humans as a species do not do well when operating with the intelligence of non-humans. We're a little too delicate for that. So my family, being a couple SD's above the mean, should be well-positioned.

    Despite my agnostic views, I consider all promises to "Improve" much less "Perfect" Man to be nothing but con games run by the cunning on the rubes. Marx was far from the first, even Martin Luther couldn't get that award. The Gnostic Heresy is purest evil and all leftist programs are subsumed by it.

    People are not apart from Nature. We are just a part, that's all. I even consider currently fashionable promises from geneticists to "tweak" people to be highly unlikely to bear non-poisoned fruit. The vast abyss of unknown knowledge stands between engineering and biology.

    I'm satisfied to know that my kids produce very bright grandkids, and that given my family's either 1) successful parenting style or 2) innate predisposition to common sense and self control, my grandkids will find very bright, very self-controlled, very capable wives and husbands with whom to produce great-grandchildren (to me) who have those attributes.

    If the rest of the world gets busy blending the high with the low and getting your uniform grey blob of middle, my descendants will thrive among such mediocre competition.

    Of course, in reality, the entire project of making Mankind into One Big Uniform deracinated blob is just another con job, intended by the very smart, most cunning knaves among us to give them a global theme park and brothel for their amusement. Stapling such people to fences would be great sport in my mind. Crucifixion or Impalement come to mind.

    Due process matters. It's the centerpiece of the Constitution. Everyone on US soil is guaranteed due process.

    It's the difference between US and USSR.

    Due process is certainly guaranteed, but that is another reason we need a de facto wall at our southern border; that is, so that we taxpayers are not on the hook for legal fees for every economic migrant who wants to scream, “I’m a refugee” if they can actually set foot in our country. We may actually need more immigration, but that should be a calculated decision by our citizens and representatives–not a free for all where whoever can climb over or overstay their visa plays the lottery of amnesty citizenship

    No, but you obviously are. Trump emphasized building a border wall and deporting illegals throughout the primaries and the general and supporters often chanted “build that wall” at rallies. Sure, white Americans want economic stability but they also don’t want their nation to demographically resemble Brazil either.

    It’s called negro fatigue and they finally realized they’d been had by that black shyster named Hussein Obama who jettisoned the white working class for the black and brown underclass. Democrats paid a price for this risky strategy in 2016.

    American whites are of their own volition to marry who they want and have as many, or as little, children as they want. They need not be shamed into your submission.

    Ok, so whites will take over the Israeli media, television and cinema and encourage Jewish females to reject Jewish men in favor of Arab Muslims and black Africans and when the propaganda finally starts taking effect we’ll sit back and proclaim it’s “of their own volition”.

    That’s real original. You mean the “rightful” owners who came to N. America via the Bering land bridge and who routinely killed, tortured, displaced and victimized each other long before whitey arrived?

    For the sake of argument let’s assume you’re right. Then that means the Muslim Turks must vacate Turkey and return to the steppes of Asia, Israeli Jews must vacate Israel and return to Europe and Russia, Middle East Muslims must relocate to Saudi Arabia and return the Middle East to Christendom and on and on.

    Virtually every nation was founded by one group displacing another group (or groups) and claiming the territory for themselves. The conquest of America by white Europeans is not unique in this regard.

    White Americans understand that America is not going to become like Brazil. Here's a virtual brown bag to help you stop hyperventilating.

    No, these working class whites found an ally in Donald Trump, just like they had found an ally in Obama. Hillary and the Democrats wrongly assumed that this group would vote for them in November. They paid the price.

    "Ok, so whites will take over the Israeli media, television and cinema and encourage Jewish females to reject Jewish men in favor of Arab Muslims and black Africans and when the propaganda finally starts taking effect we’ll sit back and proclaim it’s “of their own volition”."

    Yes, go back to where people came from. If you are saying that non-whites should leave America because they are invaders and thus do not hold any legitimacy to the land, then in order for you to be consistent, then white Europeans right now should go back to the homelands of their ancestors.

    "Virtually every nation was founded by one group displacing another group (or groups) and claiming the territory for themselves. The conquest of America by white Europeans is not unique in this regard."

    And what exactly is WORTH holding onto so preciously? The implementation of Technocracy these past 40 years has proven to be a total failure, but despite that, they forge ahead, oblivious to their own misdirected divine right of governance.

    "What we're talking about here is the Triumph of the Technocrats. There are multiple levels to this triumph of the technocrat class:

    1. The dumbing down of the Technocrat Class via a Higher Education system that optimizes technocrat specialization at the expense of real-world business experience and broad-based knowledge.

    As a result, the technocrat class has a very high opinion of its intelligence and judgment because it has no idea how little it actually knows or understands. It believes Higher Education's hype that specialization has given it a superior understanding that entitles it to control and power.

    This overweening belief in its own superiority sets the stage for hubris and catastrophically ungrounded decisions.

    The rise of computers (albeit primitive by today’s standards) enabled the first Technocrat romance with “big data”, i.e. a reliance on data analysis to make decisions about a real world that cannot be reduced to quantification without a loss of decision quality and humility.

    This is how we ended up with a nation in which Technocrats with no real-world military combat experience are running America’s wars and Technocrats who have never started a single company or paid a single employee with their own money are running America’s economy.

    2. As outlined in How Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul, the Liberal Establishment melded Corporate-banking cartels and the central state into one centrally planned, technocrat-controlled cartel-state system. This has created millions of well-paying, protected Technocrat jobs in an expansive Deep State that stretches from universities to the corporate media to the federal agencies to Silicon Valley cartels and monopolies."

    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2017/02/the-triumph-of-the-technocrats.html

    As a result, the technocrat class has a very high opinion of its intelligence and judgment because it has no idea how little it actually knows or understands. It believes Higher Education’s hype that specialization has given it a superior understanding that entitles it to control and power.

    That is so true. Describes the people in my neighborhood perfectly. All competent, successful professionals, but more ignorant and stupider than a sack of rocks outside their fields, though they haven’t the slightest clue.

    Every one of them believes he or she has the answers to everything. Utterly blockheaded. And they all vote!

Then that means the Muslim Turks must vacate Turkey and return to the steppes of Asia, Israeli Jews must vacate Israel and return to Europe and Russia, Middle East Muslims must relocate to Saudi Arabia and return the Middle East to Christendom and on and on.

    Virtually every nation was founded by one group displacing another group (or groups) and claiming the territory for themselves. The conquest of America by white Europeans is not unique in this regard.

    Hasbarat trolls like you need to bone up on your history.

    “No, but you obviously are. Trump emphasized building a border wall and deporting illegals throughout the primaries and the general and supporters often chanted “build that wall” at rallies. Sure, white Americans want economic stability but they also don’t want their nation to demographically resemble Brazil either.”

    White Americans understand that America is not going to become like Brazil. Here’s a virtual brown bag to help you stop hyperventilating.

    “It’s called negro fatigue and they finally realized they’d been had by that black shyster named Hussein Obama who jettisoned the white working class for the black and brown underclass. Democrats paid a price for this risky strategy in 2016.”

    No, these working class whites found an ally in Donald Trump, just like they had found an ally in Obama. Hillary and the Democrats wrongly assumed that this group would vote for them in November. They paid the price.

    “Ok, so whites will take over the Israeli media, television and cinema and encourage Jewish females to reject Jewish men in favor of Arab Muslims and black Africans and when the propaganda finally starts taking effect we’ll sit back and proclaim it’s “of their own volition”.”

    You suffer from Jewish Derangement Syndrome. Seek immediate psychological aid.

    “For the sake of argument let’s assume you’re right. Then that means the Muslim Turks must vacate Turkey and return to the steppes of Asia, Israeli Jews must vacate Israel and return to Europe and Russia, Middle East Muslims must relocate to Saudi Arabia and return the Middle East to Christendom and on and on.”

    Yes, go back to where people came from. If you are saying that non-whites should leave America because they are invaders and thus do not hold any legitimacy to the land, then in order for you to be consistent, then white Europeans right now should go back to the homelands of their ancestors.

    “Virtually every nation was founded by one group displacing another group (or groups) and claiming the territory for themselves. The conquest of America by white Europeans is not unique in this regard.”

    The conquest of the world by white Europeans is indeed unique.

    And what exactly is WORTH holding onto so preciously? The implementation of Technocracy these past 40 years has proven to be a total failure, but despite that, they forge ahead, oblivious to their own misdirected divine right of governance.

    "What we're talking about here is the Triumph of the Technocrats. There are multiple levels to this triumph of the technocrat class:

    1. The dumbing down of the Technocrat Class via a Higher Education system that optimizes technocrat specialization at the expense of real-world business experience and broad-based knowledge.

    As a result, the technocrat class has a very high opinion of its intelligence and judgment because it has no idea how little it actually knows or understands. It believes Higher Education's hype that specialization has given it a superior understanding that entitles it to control and power.

    This overweening belief in its own superiority sets the stage for hubris and catastrophically ungrounded decisions.

    The rise of computers (albeit primitive by today’s standards) enabled the first Technocrat romance with “big data”, i.e. a reliance on data analysis to make decisions about a real world that cannot be reduced to quantification without a loss of decision quality and humility.

    This is how we ended up with a nation in which Technocrats with no real-world military combat experience are running America’s wars and Technocrats who have never started a single company or paid a single employee with their own money are running America’s economy.

    2. As outlined in How Democrats Killed Their Populist Soul, the Liberal Establishment melded Corporate-banking cartels and the central state into one centrally planned, technocrat-controlled cartel-state system. This has created millions of well-paying, protected Technocrat jobs in an expansive Deep State that stretches from universities to the corporate media to the federal agencies to Silicon Valley cartels and monopolies."

    You are right, it’s full of ultra-intelligent people who have no culture, no idea what culture is about, and can not think in the sense that it was taken to be real thinking in the ages of culture.

    The point is that to be savants, or true artists/scientists/thinkers, a lot more features are needed in a brain than high or veryg.
    The basketball analogy is well-chosen: how many among the tall become want to play basketball? How many of them become serious players? And how many will play in the NBA?

    Of course to be productive for the country, or the company that has hired you, or the army, you don’t need to be a thinking individual in the real cultural way; actually, a culturally thinking cog is inferior to an unthinking cog for their purpose.

    I have had to stay in computer-programmer-filled environments, and it has been the most culturally humiliating experience ever, because our age has the characteristics that perfectly boost the self-opinion of high-IQ technicians without culture and the ability to think, and this makes sure they see themselves as highly cultured people with “ideas” and an open mind, while, unluckily, reality tells a different story.

    And as they can’t handle and inspect ideas, while they are eager to assure themselves and the others around of their intellectual high status, they are extremely easy to manipulate for the people who have thinking, and using words as a manipulation device, as their main trade (journalists, opinion-makers, demagogues).
    These computer programmers are the first to spot “misogyny” “white supremacy”, and all else that they are programmed to spot all the time.
    They want to make sure they are up to par in the field of ideas, lol, so they scan the (apparently) cultural environment, and pick what’s winning (that’s the best decision when you have no idea about matters).

    And you’ve personally spoken with a majority of white Americans on this? Keep the bag since you routinely throw a Hasbarat hissy fit at every white person who doesn’t hate themselves and worship the Jewish people.

    Better yet, put a plastic bag over your head and wait about 10 minutes or so.

    Yes, go back to where people came from.

    That includes Jews in Israel, right? If white Americans aren’t legitimate in your eyes than neither are Israeli Jews. Say it and quit cowardly sidestepping the issue.

    The current conquest of the Western world by Zionists is indeed unique.

    White midwits make the world go 'round. They are like a pack of wild dogs. High IQ types such as yourself (allegedly) poke them enough, and they inevitably suffer the consequences. Again, advocating for their murder only demonstrates your disdain for your own race.

    Do you work at reading into someone else’s words what you believe, or does it come to you naturally?

    Nature culls the weak just fine if world-improvers like you who are addicted to the endogenous opioid rush of "saving" the weak by coercing others into your cause would just STFU and keep your fingers out of our lives.

    Keep feeding the deer, sweetie. All you're doing with your good-feelz is amplifying the catastrophe ahead when dependence on Uncle Sam becomes a death trap.

    How very Satanic of you.

    Except you are advocating that PEOPLE do nature's dirty work for it rather than nature taking its own course.

    "if world-improvers like you who are addicted to the endogenous opioid rush of “saving” the weak..."

    These "do-gooders" are adhering to the word of God. You ought to consult your Bible.

    Psalm 72:12-14--For he will deliver the needy when he cries for help, The afflicted also, and him who has no helper. He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save. He will rescue their life from oppression and violence, And their blood will be precious in his sight...
