    Starbucks' supremo Howard Schultz knows far more about making money than I do. But lately he's gotten himself into a jam as the Eye of Soros has turned toward his vast chain of coffee shops with their deep pockets. Retail's usual workaround to keep freeloading lowlifes away is to play classical music 24/7. But classical...

    Unless you have a homeless problem in your city you have no idea how vile public bathrooms can become. Transit bathroom stations in SF often must be closed permanently as health hazards. One good tip: if you need to use one- roll up pant cuffs, and make sure shoe lace tips are tucked into your shoes. Homeless people will go into a bathroom and literally ignore the toilet, urinating and defecating on the floor. In the SF Public Library, the first floor main bathroom is stomach churning because of the foul oder. It’s so bad all floors in the SF public library, including the children’s section, are rank with stale urine. It’s so bad that the smell is permanently embedded in all the books. Humans are animals, and like all animals, they can turn into a noxious infestation. Many Starbucks bathrooms in SF are not cleaner than transit station or library bathrooms and employees restrict access because they don’t want to clean up the aftermath of misuse.

    There was also the massive, and now completely forgotten, Nuclear Peace movement. Millions of Europeans were in it. Their goals were to get American nuclear weapons out of Europe, and for Britain and France to immediately and unilaterally abandon their nuclear weapons.
     
    I know, my late mother had some sympathies for the peace movement...my father always thought it was Moscow-controlled subversion (to some extent probably true).
    Anyway, no question that Germany today spends way too little on its armed forces. I still find the "freeloader" accusation by American right-wingers misguided though. American policy since the end of the Cold war has had only a tangential relationship with genuine European security concerns.

    Anyway, no question that Germany today spends way too little on its armed forces

    No, this is can be questioned, if Germany needs to spend more you need to point out why exactly needs to spend more. I cannot think of a single foreign nation that is a serious threat that is about to invade Germany.

    If you don’t like coed schools there are plenty of single sex private schools around.

    I don’t get this dependence on public schools when there are so many alternatives.

    I don’t get this dependence on public schools when there are so many alternatives.

    There is a critical difference between public schools and other products/services: you’re forced to pay for it whether you use it or not. Choosing not to use it means paying twice. I’m lucky enough to have options, but many are not.

    But white people don't have their own student associations, clubs, organizations, and their own scholarships and networking groups, their own buildings and dining halls and menus, and their own counselors and administrators, like Jewish students do at these universities. I'm not sure if you've been on one of these campuses lately, but they're not analogous at all. Jewish students have access to a tremendous amount of exclusive resources and a parallel sort of university within the university that whites don't have. Other minority groups have similar setups that are modeled on the Jewish experience, but they tend to be much less impressive and extensive than the Jewish student ecosystem, for various reasons such as fewer numbers, less organizational ability, less external help - Jewish alumni and wealthy benefactors tend to be very active in supporting and funding these Jewish student networks and ecosystems within universities.

    These campuses have a high Jewish student population and a lot of Jewish resources and alumni involvement, so the threshold of purported anti-Semitism is much lower. Actual anti-Semitism would be pretty blatant on these campuses.

    But white people don’t have their own student associations, clubs, organizations

    I agree . . . but so what? How does that contradict or undermine anything I have said?

    By analogy, you could do a report on the “50 Worst Colleges for White People” and discover that most of those colleges had a heavily white student body. In fact, most of the anti-White activity in America comes from White people who feel compelled to virtue-signal. Just like progressive Jews feel compelled to virtue-signal by announcing their opposition to Zionism.
     
    I gotta hand it to you guys, you never give up. You just keep shoveling.

    Leftist Jews virtue-signal by announcing their opposition to White privilege and White Supremacy and Whites having borders and Whites having ethnonationalism, just like White leftists do (the difference being, Jews aren't guillotining themselves in the process). The number of Jews who announce their opposition to Zionism is vanishingly small, by comparison.

    In your view, who are the 3 most prominent Leftist Jews who regularly announce their opposition to White privilege and Whites having ethnonationalism?

    there is a problem on a lot of college campuses with anti-Israel activism
     
    "Anti-Israel Activism" is a viable option in the USA? Pull the other one.

    Just like progressive Jews feel compelled to virtue-signal by announcing their opposition to Zionism
     
    Virtue-signal to whom?

    In a minute the "self-hating jew" trope will be wielded. Because there is no reason to dislike Israel. At all.

    “Anti-Israel Activism” is a viable option in the USA? Pull the other one.

    I don’t understand this, but I can definitely tell you that many American college campuses have active chapters of groups like “Students for Justice in Palestine” which is an anti-Israel group. It happens regularly that anti-Israel divestment resolutions are proposed; that student activists have “Israeli Apartheid Week” and so on.

    You can verify all of this with a few Google searches.

    Virtue-signal to whom?

    To other Leftists. Duh. That’s what progressives do, they compete with eachother to see who can be the most virtuous.

  • I hope everyone is aware of the 60 Minutes segment earlier this evening on the Theranos scandal, which illustrates so nicely the points a lot of us have been making (thanks to Dave Pinsen for having mentioned this a few days ago). It is also worth watching the “Overtime” segment.

    I have some bad news: for various reasons, I know a number of Ph.D.s and M.D.s in the pharmaceutical and medical-laboratory industries, and I can attest that Theranos is not a “black swan.” There is widespread corruption and fraud in those industries, much more than most outsiders realize.

    One of those interviewed on 60 Minutes attributes a “fake it till you make it” attitude to high-tech industry. The Ph.D. biochemist seems to be admitting that of course he faked data until it simply became so egregious that, after a year and a half, he had to quit. Similarly, the young Chinese lab tech admits to having known of blatantly criminal fraud that would have actually harmed patients, but she gives no indication that she “blew the whistle” (she did quit).

    I myself have seen this attitude again and again: if you are not a “team player” who is willing to engage in criminal activity, you are not a good employee (and, indeed, the implication is often that you have a screw loose if you insist on following the law!). I saw this, for example, when I worked for a defense contractor and I was ordered to falsify a report evaluating work by one of our subcontractors: I was given the order by my immediate supervisor, though he claimed that the order came from “higher up” (rather than comply, I quit).

    Not all companies are like this: at the first company I worked for out of school, a chip designer and fabricator named TRW LSI Products, I did not know of even one single case where we lied to our customers. Indeed, our customers routinely told us that our circuits worked better than we claimed. But I have seen more cases where the corporate culture was like Theranos than like my first employer.

    Apart from seeking to destroy the nuclear agreement with Iran, thereby humiliating Britain, France and Germany (US ambassador to Germany basically made some kind of ultimatum on Twitter that German companies should now immediately withdraw from Iran), and making totally clear that the US apparently values its relationship with its “allies” Israel and Saudi-Arabia (which have never contributed anything at all to America’s various military projects) much more.
    Trump and his asshole supporters can go to hell as far as I’m concerned.


    You Krauts unilaterally tore up the one million times more important Dublin agreement on refugees then demanded - and are still demanding - that Hungary, Czechia, and Poland knuckle under to their German betters and allow their countries to be flooded with Muslims. This was only a couple of years after insisting, loudly and sanctimoniously, that Greece must adhere to every goddamn letter of every EU agreement and regulation in world history because, well, that's the German way. Vee alvays follow orders! Then, suddenly, when it came to refugees it didn't matter what the rest of Europe thought and the German people overwhelmingly endorsed such arrogance. It's the German way, or the highway. Can there be any doubt that German hatred of Trump has more to do with his opposition to the Million Man Syrian March into Europe than with his opposition to Obama's Iran pledge?

    Even before Trump gave in to much of the Establishment agenda in the MidEast, that is, when he appeared to be a swamp-draining Buchananite isolationist who would remove US troops from much of the world, over 90% of Germans were anti-Trump. IOW the Germans preferred the Magic Negro, his beloved NATO - in which Germans are freeloaders - and his interventions in Libya and Syria. (I recall Germany also supporting Bill Clinton's bombing of Serbs on behalf of their old WW2 allies, the Croats and the Bosnian/Albanian Muslims). No matter what Trump does the Germans will hate him just as much as they hate the British for rejecting the German imperial project known as the European Union. Upsetting Germans means he's at least doing one thing right.

    Bomber Harris did nothing wrong.

    Saturation bombing of civilian areas was morally wrong and ultimately self defeating, but we knew that from the Blitz.

    Of course he also failed to launch follow up conventional raids on the Mohne and Eder dams as they were being repaired, something Speer thought would have been devastating to arms production.

    Jewish Woman Is New Face of Intermarriage, Pew Study Data Reveals

    ………………
    According to Cohen, three times as many Jewish men intermarried before 1970 as women. But between 2000 and 2013, slightly more Jewish women intermarried than men.

    What’s more, intermarried Jewish women are now no more likely than intermarried Jewish men to raise their children Jewish, according to Cohen.

    Half of the Jewish women who intermarried between 1980 and 1989 say that they had raised their children Jewish, compared with just 19% of Jewish men. Today, only 15% of Jewish women who have intermarried since 2000 say they are raising their children Jewish.

    The data are based on the 2013 Pew survey that polled nearly 3,500 Jews, the largest survey of American Jews in more than a decade.

    Coffee-houses work great in a high trust society, yes you have someone conducting their business during the day on one cup of coffee, but with some gentle reminders he makes way for the family coming in, or he brings in his business associates next time and they all order lunch and it all works out somehow. If everyone is basically at war all the time with people in the wrong cultural/ ethnic group this can never work. If you have a store at all you sell your items from behind bullet proof glass, silently. And not incidentally, one clue that the USA is now a low trust society is that you rarely see customers talk to each other in a Starbucks. In past centuries, coffee houses is where you went for conversation (you went to taverns to hook up with prostitutes).
     
    Coffee houses were the breeding ground of the old Bolshevik left and of the folk music scare. The Waiting for Guffman crew did a great job of illustrating this era with the film A Mighty Wind.

    To drive home the point about Hungary.

    https://i.imgur.com/1wUk7Zp.png

    How does the EU define material deprivation?


    Material deprivation rates gauge the proportion of people whose living conditions are severely affected by a lack of resources. The severe material deprivation rate represents the proportion of people living in households that cannot afford at least four of the following nine items:

    * mortgage or rent payments, utility bills, hire purchase instalments or other loan payments;

    * one week’s holiday away from home;

    * a meal with meat, chicken, fish or vegetarian equivalent every second day;

    * unexpected financial expenses;

    * a telephone (including mobile telephone);

    * a colour TV;

    * a washing machine;

    * a car;

    * heating to keep the home adequately warm.
     

    Whatever your per capita income is on paper, what people care about are tangible things. And the list above is not exactly luxurious or unreasonable. Relative decline also matters. Hungary had "Goulash Communism", and arguably had far fewer restrictions than most countries in Eastern Bloc with perhaps parts of Yugoslavia rivalling it.

    …had far fewer restrictions than most countries in Eastern Bloc with perhaps parts of Yugoslavia rivaling it.

    Yugoslavia was never part of the ‘Eastern Bloc’.

    Al Sharpton: Royal wedding shows white supremacy is ‘on its last breath'
    By Morgan Gstalter - 05/19/18 The Hill.com

    Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday’s nuptials between the U.K.’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a biracial American actress, show that white male supremacy is “on its last breath.”

    "When you got little white girls in Wales saying, 'I want to be like Meghan,' there's a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath," Sharpton said.

    "When you have little white girls in Arkansas look up and say, 'I want to be beautiful and smart like Michelle Obama. I want to dress like the Obama girls (Sasha and Malia),' that's where that white supremacy is questioned,” Sharpton said. “White parents in their living room say, 'We've got to do something.' That's what Trump played on. 'We're losing control of our own children.’”

    Sharpton went on to say white supremacist groups are "losing their minds" over the royal wedding. “They're losing their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,” Sharpton said. “Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.”

     

    The Guardian, usually sceptical and low-key in its Royal coverage, is going overboard on this particular wedding, the ethnic angle being key. Commenters seem to have noticed the change and aren’t impressed.

    Very true!! The Black Legend was gestated by the British in cahoots with Portuguese and Dutch allies, pick the subgroups you want.Theodore de Bry has been debunked as propagandist but his engravings are still been recycled 300 years later. Same goes for Bartolome de las Casas (connoisseurs on Unz will appreciate knowing he was born in Sevilla, 1474, of jewish ancestry), debunked by historians like Pierre Chaunu, William Maltby and Menendez Pidal among others.

    Not that conquests are bloodless. People like Francisco de Carvajal and Panfilo de Narvaez were cruel and pitiless, but Carvajal was executed by orders of the Spanish King. Cristopher Columbus, great marine but poor administrator, made his last trip back to Spain in chains.

    On the other hand the Spanish Crown built 13 universities before Harvard was built, as well as a network of hospitals and charities, charged with accepting both Indians and Spaniards alike. Compare to British colonial policies, with endless --but endless-- massacres of Indians and their basic sustenance: the bison. Mestizo populations happened under Spanish policy, but go find me mestizos on former British colonies.

    Interestingly, there is today in Spain a more solid base of thinkers and media outlets that denounce the reigning Globalism, globalists, One Thought (pensamiento único) and gender ideology than anything I have seen in English. They are not so worried about whether Stalin or Hitler were good or bad. Even Franco bashers do not derail them. They are fighting the ideologies in power, and naming the persons/organizations/networks that spearhead them. Not "the jews" but specific names like Bildeberg or Soros. Why is Soros never named on Unz?

    It’s interesting what you are saying about Spain now because I was always wondering about positive leftovers from Franco. Where were they? Was everything that Franco achieved lost and Spain became the most liberal post-modernist European country? Could you write more about it or give some links?

    As far as Black Legend there is no question that most Anglo world still believes it and anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic attitudes are prevalent. It is still in the pop culture like Monty Python sketches about Spanish Inquisition. The bottom line is that philosophies and policies of Spaniards and English were drastically different resulting in much better outcomes for Indians in Latin America. Then came Americans who became much worse than the British. The push for the American Revolution came from land grabbers who wanted to break Indian-British treaties that the Brits seemed to be respecting.

    Talking about Jews what you seem to be disapproving is essential for understanding history and what is taking place. The world w/o Jews can’t be understood. But you are right that more attention should be placed on various institutions like Bilderbergs and NGO funded by Soros to understand how and where policies are formulate and how members of political class are indoctrinated and taught the “party line.” Where is the central committee of the party?

    Starbucks don't have kitchens. No health department compliance. They sell a shitload of food (prepared elsewhere) for no kitchen. In some suburban stores, drive through is over 50% of revenue.

    My guess is that Starbucks will experience minimal financial consequences from this. However, it could signal peak Starbucks. Chipotle was derailed by its food poisoning incident.

    Revenues in Q2 totaled a record $6 billion, up 14% over last year, driven by comp increases of 2% globally and in the U.S. and 4% in China. Importantly, we saw comps accelerate in both the U.S. and China throughout the quarter, giving us confidence in both our full year and long-term guidance. At the same time, we opened nearly 500 new Starbucks stores globally in the quarter, and now operate over 28,000 stores in 76 countries, with our newest class of stores continuing to deliver best-in-class operating and financial performance and returns. And our record Q2 non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.53 represents an increase of 18% over last year.

     

    This was their 1Q conference call. 2% comps isn't great but it hit their guidance.

    Southrons, as it is in their in-born nature to be cruel-hearted, had demanded free labor for their plantations in their race for mammon.
     
    Well, slaves were pretty expensive; the South was poor and arguably kept poor by slavery; the historic costs of this slave episode is shaping up to be one of the largest economic sinks ever perpetuated.

    Linking slavery, a universal human institution, to in-born cruel-heartedness is not accurate.

    The worst foreign policy faction in America is the Hillary Clinton Democrats.

    As the Hispanic/Asian share of the population increases, this will be the faction that increasingly dominates.

    The Bernie Democrats are mostly SWPLs who feel guilty about their own prosperity, and the Buchanan Republicans are Bible Belt types. These isolationist factions will decline along with the White share of the population.

    You are wishing for President Adam Schiff - which is a very foolish sentiment.

    But if we assume that German Reader is correct then the population influx from Latin America will make America so dysfunctional and destabilised that it doesn’t really matter as who ever is in power will be too busy trying to keep the country together to pull stupid foreign policy stunts.

    I am not saying that I necessarily agree with him but I understand his point of view. Many Americans (and unfortunately also many Europeans as well) seem, for all their bragging about ‘critical thinking’, to just form their foreign policy views based on a few hackneyed cliches and sob stories from Randomistan they saw on TV or read in the newspapers.

    Will Starbucks actually follow through with this, or are they just going to make some minor changes to their loitering policy then wait a few months for everyone to forget about it and go back to the status quo antebellum? I have to imagine, as Moses and eD suggest above, that this will not be followed in practice and any manager naive enough to actually do so will be out of a job; sort of like how James Damore was fired by Google for defending Google's actual business practices.

    I ask because I can't imagine that the policy as spelled out in the linked article will be literally followed. Given the experience of public libraries, if Starbucks actually allows anyone to walk into its branches and stay as long as they can get away with then they will be soon inundated with homeless people. This would make Starbucks a much less attractive destination for SWPL whites to go "work" on their "in-progress" novel, take their lover on a coffee date, study for upcoming exams or read the latest hot takes on why Drumpf is Literally Hitler.

    As usual, we have the recurring theme that Steve has so insightfully pointed out popping up in American life: are institutions, like countries and universities, more or less successful when they take care in choosing who gets to enter them? Common sense+skin in the game suggests yes, but the media and academia narrative says no. (Except for their institutions, personally, of course.)

    Granted, while I don't think Starbucks will really follow through on this, the few instances where it does will be ripe for hilarious videos to be uploaded to YouTube and Worldstar Hiphop.

    are institutions, like countries and universities, more or less successful when they take care in choosing who gets to enter them? Common sense+skin in the game suggests yes, but the media and academia narrative says no. (Except for their institutions, personally, of course.)

    Great point.

    Border/entry control is essential not just for institutions, countries and universities but for pretty much any distinct, sustainable system.

    Look at the foundation of all life, the humble cell. Its cell membrane separates the cell from everything else, and controls what enters (nutrients) and exits (waste) the cell.

    Dissolve the cell membrane and the cell dies.

    Kyrgyzstan

    Regarding Kazakhstan, how many of those 40,718 immigrants who received citizenship are ethnic Russians, Ukrainians, Germans or a mix thereof — as opposed to Kazakhs and mixed Eurasians? Can an educated guess be made?

    The Chinese are nowhere to be seen. People who know better have been saying for years that the Chinese takeover of the Far East is a myth. The ones who are there can be counted in two categories: temporary workers and businessmen.

    This graphic is for 2017 alone, right?

    Note the obtaining Russian citizenship is only (over 200 people per year) from countries with a GDP per capita lower than Russia, although at least with Kazakhstan the differential is small (a lot of the ‘immigrants’ from Kazakhstan are Russian nationality Kazakhstani citizens coming back).

    Same story around the world – unless they’re fleeing war or something, you only get immigrants from countries poorer than your own. Always these ‘poor immigrants’ from dysfunctional countries, rather than from successful countries.

    -

    Also note the process – it’s people who choose to take Russian citizenship after living in Russia for 5 years, or 3 years if they are married to a Russian citizen, (which is often through marriages arranged especially for purpose of obtaining Russian citizenship – a huge underground business).

    Euromaidan was still only 4 years ago, so the numbers of Ukrainian citizens attaining Russian citizenship will surely continue to surge from 2019.

    To drive home the point about Hungary.

    https://i.imgur.com/1wUk7Zp.png

    How does the EU define material deprivation?


    Material deprivation rates gauge the proportion of people whose living conditions are severely affected by a lack of resources. The severe material deprivation rate represents the proportion of people living in households that cannot afford at least four of the following nine items:

    * mortgage or rent payments, utility bills, hire purchase instalments or other loan payments;

    * one week’s holiday away from home;

    * a meal with meat, chicken, fish or vegetarian equivalent every second day;

    * unexpected financial expenses;

    * a telephone (including mobile telephone);

    * a colour TV;

    * a washing machine;

    * a car;

    * heating to keep the home adequately warm.
     

    Whatever your per capita income is on paper, what people care about are tangible things. And the list above is not exactly luxurious or unreasonable. Relative decline also matters. Hungary had "Goulash Communism", and arguably had far fewer restrictions than most countries in Eastern Bloc with perhaps parts of Yugoslavia rivalling it.

    Yugoslavia had unrestricted travel, which Hungary did not. It was normal, at least for the middle class, to travel abroad for holidays, university study, language courses etc both to Western Europe as well as around the Warsaw Pact countries.

    The economic strength of the country is overrated by people today, but in terms of the standard of living of the population and access to consumer goods, it was incomparably better than the countries of the Warsaw Pact.

    Looking at the ex-Yugoslav countries today gives a misleading impression, since Serbia’s GDP is about 80% of the 1990 level, and even Croatia with its small population and over €10 billion a year just from tourism also still has a lower GDP than in 1990.

Most couldn't quite make out what was going on but they knew it bothered them and they left.

    No, I was asking AnotherDad for examples of white American groups other than Jews who ought to receive and then benefit from particulized criticism, which I did because he made that general argument, and then said Jews should on that basis welcome and benefit from at least some Jew-specific criticism. If the argument was a good would, at least one of them would have been able to respond to the question directly. Like, "Yes, the Irish are prone to problem drinking and DUI, and the Scots-Irish to opioids, they would benefit from some hostile reminders of it." But he won't say something like that, as he shouldn't.

    My more general point is talking about white Americans as separate ethnic groups with opposing interests in zero-sum competition with each other is divisive, counterproductive, and increasingly incoherent as we are rapidly blending together.

    For the record, there are certainly plenty of valid critiques of European and American Jews one could level, and they typically correspond to the ones actually asserted by anti-semites in an extremely exaggerated form. And of course people who level them tend to suffer from often very disproportionate responses.

    I do not see this as a substantial problem however. I think the intellectual value of airing out even valid Jew-critiques is not especially high, but the bigger issue is the counter reaction from both Jews and their many friends and relatives is extremely damaging to the nationalist right. Again, I get no earnest response to this point, because "You are wrong, there are many examples of successful countersemite political movements in circumstances similar to the USA" is also impossible to say.

    I think the intellectual value of airing out even valid Jew-critiques is not especially high

    A natural monopoly is where production costs of a single firm are lower than production costs by multiple firms. A single post office company can build out its delivery network and spread the cost over the larger network. Multiple post office companies don't have as great economies of scale and can't spread out their production costs.

    There is UPS and FedEx, and they show no signs of consolidating in the near future. There were more in the past but they have merged or now only handle international freight. The market and not government should determine what is and is not a monopoly.

    Exactly. The ships are registered in places like Panama and employ very low-paid staff. However, a refined female Jewish acquaintance of mine who was a jeweller at Harry Winston in Beverly Hills was hired away by a cruise line. To sell high-priced and easily pocketed and hocked items they need to pay American rates for the staff, it seems.

    It's sad that Tom Wolfe has died before he could write a piece on the Post Office.

    I came West in the sixties to work at the Rincon Annex Post Office in San Francisco and to live in the Haight Ashbury. On the whole the Post Office was crazier and more colorful.

    I sorted mail from three in the morning till seven. Then I went to school. The Post Office was another kind of school. It was rotten with artists and would-be artists. I was lambasted by another postal clerk once who had decided that I disagreed with him on so many matters because unlike virtually everyone else there, I wasn't an artist. I explained that I was an opera singer but that cut no mustard with him. I didn't paint, so I couldn't be expected to hold appropriate political views.

    The management was composed of half wits who had somehow gravitated to the one organization on earth where halfwits were given management jobs. I'll always remember the day when a total fool was made our section's supervisor. He immediately took up cigar smoking. All the bosses who roamed the work floor had a well chewed stogy clamped in their teeth. They were living a cartoon stereotype existence and proud of it.

    I wish I could write like Wolfe.

Again, I get no earnest response to this point, because "You are wrong, there are many examples of successful countersemite political movements in circumstances similar to the USA" is also impossible to say.

    No, I was asking AnotherDad for examples of white American groups other than Jews who ought to receive and then benefit from particulized criticism, which I did because he made that general argument, and then said Jews should on that basis welcome and benefit from at least some Jew-specific criticism.

    Yes, and I meant – by extension – british americans, irish americans, italian americans, etc. As I said, I can think of lots of valid criticisms to be leveled at anglo-saxons. I have made them.

    I think the intellectual value of airing out even valid Jew-critiques is not especially high, but the bigger issue is the counter reaction from both Jews and their many friends and relatives is extremely damaging to the nationalist right.

    Which sounds like a fancy, disingenuous way of saying “but my group really doesn’t need to be criticized. We’re fine, thanks.” Your group, as you see it, is special, and above all critique.

    You've overlooked a few costs — labor, and rent. That $7 in your example is a lot less than a real restaurant would get for a meal. I'm amazed that Starbucks was ever able to survive at its high-rent locations. I guess it all works out for them, but I'm still amazed.

    Starbucks don’t have kitchens. No health department compliance. They sell a shitload of food (prepared elsewhere) for no kitchen. In some suburban stores, drive through is over 50% of revenue.

    My guess is that Starbucks will experience minimal financial consequences from this. However, it could signal peak Starbucks. Chipotle was derailed by its food poisoning incident.

    Revenues in Q2 totaled a record $6 billion, up 14% over last year, driven by comp increases of 2% globally and in the U.S. and 4% in China. Importantly, we saw comps accelerate in both the U.S. and China throughout the quarter, giving us confidence in both our full year and long-term guidance. At the same time, we opened nearly 500 new Starbucks stores globally in the quarter, and now operate over 28,000 stores in 76 countries, with our newest class of stores continuing to deliver best-in-class operating and financial performance and returns. And our record Q2 non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.53 represents an increase of 18% over last year.

    This was their 1Q conference call. 2% comps isn’t great but it hit their guidance.

    Some very upscale East Coast areas do restrict or ban franchises. Seems like a good idea to me because momsicle and popsicle businesses are less efficient and create more jobs if the money is there.

    Franchises do offer a more efficient business model but all that means is franchises can go into more marginal areas and/or offer more products and services in midgrade areas. But in upscale areas they are going to spend the money-why not make them spend a little more and create jobs? Only works where there is specific excess wealth.

    It’s part of the charm of visiting Avalon on Catalina Island 26 miles across the sea from Los Angeles: all the restaurants are non-chain local ones. I’m sure the chains would provide a little better value, but then it would be like being home instead of on an island in the Pacific.

    post office should not be allowed to restrict other carriers from delivering to mailbox and po box.

    Post Office Boxes are USPS property by obvious inherent fact-they are located in the Post Office!-but the mailbox at the end of your driveway is proprietary to the Post Office by fiat alone. You can, and in the days of newspapers many did, have little secondary boxes or hutches where the newspaper could be put, and they could be co-located on the same post as the US Mail box, but they were clearly marked and separated as being separate from the mailbox.

    You can get a private mail box at UPS Stores, or at any of dozens of other places, that all the carriers deliver to. The price is generally quite a bit higher.

    I’m astonished that as many libtys and ex-libtys as there are here no one has brought up Lysander Spooner and the first use of the Postal Express Statutes.

    Lysander Spooner

    Lysander Spooner (1808–1887) is the American individualist anarchist and legal theorist known mainly for setting up a commercial post office in competition with the government and thereby being shut down. But he was also the author of some of the most radical political and economic writings of the 19th century, and continues to have a huge influence on libertarian thinkers today. He was a dedicated opponent of slavery in all its forms — even advocating guerrilla war to stop it — but also a dedicated opponent of the federal invasion of the South and its postwar reconstruction. See Let’s Abolish Government, a collection selected personally by Murray Rothbard as Spooner’s best work.

    https://mises.org/profile/lysander-spooner

    Spooner is probably the most influential protolibertarian writer in LP history besides Malice Rosenbomb and Murray Rothbard themselves.

    Rich or poor, the Ukrainian language and its culture has been impeded going way back for several centuries during its association with Russia:

    1622 – Decree (ukase) of Tsar Michael on a petition of the Moscow Patriarch Filaret to burn in the Tsardom of Muscovy all copies of Didatic gospels (uk) printed by Cyril Stavrovetsky (Wikidata).[1]
    1690 – Condemnation and anathema of the Council of the ROC for “new Kievan books” by Petro Mohyla, Cyril Stavrovetsky, Symeon of Polotsk, Lazar Baranovych, Antonius Radivilovsky (Wikidata) and others.[citation needed]

    1862 – Closing free Sunday Ukrainian schools for adults in the Russian part of Ukraine.[citation needed]
    1863 – Valuev Circular banning censors to give permissions for Ukrainian spiritual and popular educational literature: “there was no and could not have been a separate Little Russian language”[citation needed]
    1864 – Adoption of the Charter of the primary school at which education was to be conducted only in Russian.[citation needed]
    1869 – Introduction of the Polish language as the official language of education and the administration of Polish Eastern Galicia.[citation needed]
    1870 – Comment of Minister of Education of Russia Dmitry Tolstoy that “the ultimate goal of education for all inorodtsy (non-Russians, literally “people of other descent”) is unarguably to be Russification.”[citation needed]

    Starbucks needs to learn -- hey, we're at iSteve, so why not make a new law -- The First Law of Online Controversy: "Completely ignore social media denunciation of you or your company for two weeks, and it will go away as the mob tires and a new source of fake outrage appears." It might take three weeks for Starbucks. But the point is that you are the source of oxygen for the fire, and anything you say keeps it going, and nothing you say will absolve you in the eyes of the mob.

    The profit on non alcoholic beverages is unbelievable. If the waiters load the glasses with ice a restaurants can get thousands of $2.00 drinks out of a gallon of coke syrup.

    Coffee’s about the same profit, a little coffee, a little milk drop of vanilla a little sugar a blender full of ice and viola, a $7. 00 coffee slushy. Starbucks doesn’t need much turnover to make a profit.

    Regarding Kazakhstan, how many of those 40,718 immigrants who received citizenship are ethnic Russians, Ukrainians, Germans or a mix thereof — as opposed to Kazakhs and mixed Eurasians? Can an educated guess be made?

    The Chinese are nowhere to be seen. People who know better have been saying for years that the Chinese takeover of the Far East is a myth. The ones who are there can be counted in two categories: temporary workers and businessmen.

    Note the obtaining Russian citizenship is only (over 200 people per year) from countries with a GDP per capita lower than Russia, although at least with Kazakhstan the differential is small (a lot of the 'immigrants' from Kazakhstan are Russian nationality Kazakhstani citizens coming back).

    Same story around the world - unless they're fleeing war or something, you only get immigrants from countries poorer than your own. Always these 'poor immigrants' from dysfunctional countries, rather than from successful countries.

    -


    Also note the process - it's people who choose to take Russian citizenship after living in Russia for 5 years, or 3 years if they are married to a Russian citizen, (which is often through marriages arranged especially for purpose of obtaining Russian citizenship - a huge underground business).

    Euromaidan was still only 4 years ago, so the numbers of Ukrainian citizens attaining Russian citizenship will surely continue to surge from 2019.

    One interesting tidbit -- there is a kosher bakery in Madison, and the owner is a Christian. In fact, the bakery could not survive unless the owner were a Christian. If it were run by a Jew, it would go bankrupt.

    Thing is, there is very little difference between Halal and Kosher foods. So observant Muslims can go to the Kosher bakery. In fact, the busiest day of the week for the bakery is Saturday, when all the Muslims go to the bakery. The second busiest day is Sunday, when the Jews go.

    Under Kosher rules, the bakery could NOT be open Saturday if it were run by a Jew, and the place would go bankrupt. Since the owner is Christian, he is permitted under Kosher rules to work (Shabbot Goy).

    You go with the classical music, and you do "club" or premium stores where people buy memberships and can stay as long as they want. They could just sell coffee and not even have stores at all but there is the problem is that their coffee sort of sucks.

    This is a good combination of "you can't have nice things" in a diverse, low trust society, combined with capitalist greed and over-expansion.

    Coffee-houses work great in a high trust society, yes you have someone conducting their business during the day on one cup of coffee, but with some gentle reminders he makes way for the family coming in, or he brings in his business associates next time and they all order lunch and it all works out somehow. If everyone is basically at war all the time with people in the wrong cultural/ ethnic group this can never work. If you have a store at all you sell your items from behind bullet proof glass, silently. And not incidentally, one clue that the USA is now a low trust society is that you rarely see customers talk to each other in a Starbucks. In past centuries, coffee houses is where you went for conversation (you went to taverns to hook up with prostitutes).

    Capitalist over-expansion as well. I went to the original Starbucks or one of the original ones in Seattle in 1991 and it was a cool coffee-shop. It had to be bought out and turned into an empire. Well you do this, you get a big corporate bureaucracy, and eventually you have to put more and more stores in downscale areas. Eventually the entire business model goes downscale. You also put independent stores and more reasonably scaled chains out of business on the way. McDonalds followed a similar trajectory. Limit or ban chains and the Philadelphia "incidents" don't happen, if nothing else because these particular stores don't exist.

    But that was only a minor hit in the U.S. and a much bigger hit in other Anglophone countries where school shootings have not taken off as a phenomenon. And there was a big time gap before the real start of the mass school shooting era in the late nineties. (There were mass shootings in the eighties in workplaces, and there were gang-related school shootings, but it was the late nineties events in Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas, Oregon, and finally and most famously Colorado that began the modern era of the mass school shooting.) And also the primitive video makes no attempt (thank goodness) to evoke the actual event.

    I think Geldof did play with fire in writing and recording it, but I am skeptical as to whether he had any real effect.

    If Bob Geldof hadn’t invented Live Aid, The Boomtown Rats would have been forgotten about in the US. He was redeemed by writing “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

    Just a quick word of concern/obserservation here, Steve-O: You are rapidly approaching that line of age/hubris-related, silk sheet, self-parody that old entertainers ridicule as young people, and almost invariably assume, before kitchy, but well-compensated, irrelevance. If you are unsure of what I am referring, watch some clips of William Shatner toward the end of the TJ Hooker run, or Al Pacino in Heat... Or listen for Dylan on a Traveling Wilburys album.

    Heat is an all-time great movie, and Al Pacino was fine in it. Peak, over-the-top Pacino was earlier, in Scent of a Woman.

    This will likely have an impact in places like San Francisco, with large homeless populations. In my suburban CT town, there are no homeless people, and the Starbucks is in a strip mall that you have to drive to: very few people live within walking distance. So ours will be unaffected. It's a wealthy town, so students won't hang there: they've got too many activities.

    I can't imagine what will happen in places like SF or Seattle with large homeless populations. It doesn't take many homeless people to make a Starbucks completely unpalatable to normal people.

    The last time I saw a bum in a SF starbucks he put a $1 single banana and two glass bottles of fancy $4.50 iced teas on the counter. He didn’t have enough for both bottles, but still got the one.

    It was then I realized I was more of a cheapskate than a smelly bum. I’d never pay $4.50 for a bottle of ice tea. I really should also just start taking dollar store caffeine pills in the morning rather than $3 for a giant starbucks, but I like the taste.

    You go with the classical music, and you do "club" or premium stores where people buy memberships and can stay as long as they want. They could just sell coffee and not even have stores at all but there is the problem is that their coffee sort of sucks.

    This is a good combination of "you can't have nice things" in a diverse, low trust society, combined with capitalist greed and over-expansion.

    Coffee-houses work great in a high trust society, yes you have someone conducting their business during the day on one cup of coffee, but with some gentle reminders he makes way for the family coming in, or he brings in his business associates next time and they all order lunch and it all works out somehow. If everyone is basically at war all the time with people in the wrong cultural/ ethnic group this can never work. If you have a store at all you sell your items from behind bullet proof glass, silently. And not incidentally, one clue that the USA is now a low trust society is that you rarely see customers talk to each other in a Starbucks. In past centuries, coffee houses is where you went for conversation (you went to taverns to hook up with prostitutes).

    Capitalist over-expansion as well. I went to the original Starbucks or one of the original ones in Seattle in 1991 and it was a cool coffee-shop. It had to be bought out and turned into an empire. Well you do this, you get a big corporate bureaucracy, and eventually you have to put more and more stores in downscale areas. Eventually the entire business model goes downscale. You also put independent stores and more reasonably scaled chains out of business on the way. McDonalds followed a similar trajectory. Limit or ban chains and the Philadelphia "incidents" don't happen, if nothing else because these particular stores don't exist.

    Some very upscale East Coast areas do restrict or ban franchises. Seems like a good idea to me because momsicle and popsicle businesses are less efficient and create more jobs if the money is there.

    Franchises do offer a more efficient business model but all that means is franchises can go into more marginal areas and/or offer more products and services in midgrade areas. But in upscale areas they are going to spend the money-why not make them spend a little more and create jobs? Only works where there is specific excess wealth.

    I myself prefer blondes because I'm one, my husband is one and thanks be to God the girls are blonde with a bit of help. But lots of people like brunettes.

But she went to catholic school all the way and had to be re baptized in the church of England, something all those Lutheran Germans who married into the royal family never had to do.

    Who cares. I remember the whole dianna thing. Its just beyond vulgar.

    She had not previously been baptized, in either the Catholic or Episcopal churches–which led to endless debates on Catholic Twitter about the applicability of the Pauline Privilege to her case.

    But the fact that she was not a Christian until a month ago lends credence to your point that she had probably never heard a black preacher before. I had the same thought.

    There's a big difference for between *paying* sales tax and *collecting* sales tax. To be sure, the latter is burdensome, but it's not the same thing.

    Incidentally, Amazon decided to agree to collect sales tax in all states that have one because they figured it would give them an edge over smaller sellers. Basically, Amazon is better able to bear the large costs of sales tax compliance than its competitors. And now Amazon expects all sellers to be forced to collect the tax.

    There’s a big difference for between *paying* sales tax and *collecting* sales tax. To be sure, the latter is burdensome, but it’s not the same thing.

Basically, Amazon is better able to bear the large costs of sales tax compliance than its competitors. And now Amazon expects all sellers to be forced to collect the tax.

    To an Amazon customer in a state where there is sales tax, it may appear that Amazon is charging and collecting sales tax on that customer’s orders. (And on orders where Amazon is directly the seller and supplier, that may be so.)

    But for the many businesses who sell things via Amazon, Amazon gives its customers the illusion that they are charging and collecting sales tax on their orders, while passing along the burden to those businesses of actually paying sales tax to their state authorities.

    For instance, if you are a widget seller selling widgets through Amazon, Amazon will charge a customer your Amazon price (usually a sum of your base price + the markup you charge to cover Amazon’s fees) and charge sales tax on that total price and their standard shipping fees. However, at the widget seller’s end, the sales tax calculated on the total price basically wipes out the markup for Amazon’s fees AND pushes the shipping fees into the negative. In other words, the payment of sales tax is the responsibility of the widget seller and the illusion that Amazon collects it is deducted from the seller’s markup and shipping costs.

    Quite a nifty trick, no?

    Will Starbucks actually follow through with this, or are they just going to make some minor changes to their loitering policy then wait a few months for everyone to forget about it and go back to the status quo antebellum? I have to imagine, as Moses and eD suggest above, that this will not be followed in practice and any manager naive enough to actually do so will be out of a job; sort of like how James Damore was fired by Google for defending Google’s actual business practices.

    I ask because I can’t imagine that the policy as spelled out in the linked article will be literally followed. Given the experience of public libraries, if Starbucks actually allows anyone to walk into its branches and stay as long as they can get away with then they will be soon inundated with homeless people. This would make Starbucks a much less attractive destination for SWPL whites to go “work” on their “in-progress” novel, take their lover on a coffee date, study for upcoming exams or read the latest hot takes on why Drumpf is Literally Hitler.

    As usual, we have the recurring theme that Steve has so insightfully pointed out popping up in American life: are institutions, like countries and universities, more or less successful when they take care in choosing who gets to enter them? Common sense+skin in the game suggests yes, but the media and academia narrative says no. (Except for their institutions, personally, of course.)

    Great point.

    Border/entry control is essential not just for institutions, countries and universities but for pretty much any distinct, sustainable system.

    Saker can't write an article where he doesn't start by calling those who disagree with him names. So who is the infantile one, Snaker? But then again, I have to admit that I start my attacks on Putin by calling out the nauseating, servile apologists that surround him like a cloud of fleas on wings, like Saker.

    I wanted to like Putin. I wanted to believe that when he seemed to challenge the Hegemon on a principled basis and then made moves that came across as commitments to back up his words, he was like JFK, a man who found a soul and a spine in the middle of his presidency. God knows the world needed someone with some brains and guts and some good intentions, especially after Chavez died, and as the malignant Hegemon continued to spread its evil.

    Sadly, doubts set in quickly. Putin was always far too willing to cut a deal with the Hegemon and its allies that always seemed to put the onus on the targets of the Hegemon. Also, Putin always seemed to ride in wearing shining armor too little too late. But now he's torn off his own mask. Every move he makes now is geared to please the Hegemon and its key ally, Israel. Syria? Iran? Hezbollah? Palestine? Eff them. That seems to be Putin's despicable attitude now.

    Every defense I've seen of Putin's behavior is blatant nonsense. He's playing a waiting game? That's like a doctor in ER playing a waiting game, with a patient bleeding out on the table. He's trying to balance things? By constantly sucking up to and strengthening the primary aggressors and main power holders? He is only responsible for Russia's interests? Bullpucky, and even Putin has pointed out again and again the importance of a more balanced and fair and honest global order for all nations.

    In a particularly despicable move, the sometimes halfway reasonable Snaker tries to smear Putin's critics as 'jew- haters'. Wow. I did not really think Snaker could go so low. I thought homophobia was his worst vice. But he did go there. And I stopped reading there. This Saker is not just despicable, but evil as well. Such an evil person as Snaker is worth no more of my time.

    After Libya, it was obvious that Syria was next, and that it was a stepping stone to Iran and ultimately Russia, and that the key to Syria's defense would be stout air defense. Russia refused to provide this and has refused ever since. Sure Russia has no obligation to do the right thing. It has every 'right' to be as evil as the Hegemon. And it is. Russia now gets to be the Hegemon's lap dog for all to see. Hopefully the Russian People won't have it.

    Pretty good comment. I does not look good. Putin disappoints. Perhaps we haven’t seen everything yet. Is it the end game? How Russia is going to save its face and how will be allowed to retreat? Many questions but I think you got it.

    I do not agree that Saker is evil though. His aspirations exceed his talents. He can’t write well, can’t think thoroughly, keeps moving the same pieces of lead soldiers from his toy army. He is really a boy who will die a boy. Everybody has an uncle like him though w/o aspiration of writing a blog where he could pose as an analyst. The uncle bores you to death on family gatherings but is basically harmless. One thing: Saker heart is in the right place. He wants good guys to win.

    "and a dim, deranged, 71-year-old man-child who’d be like any other tinpot dictator given the chance"


    it's really hard to take you seriously when you say something that stupid.

    the very best thing about Trump......and make no mistake I realize he's a blowhard......but the best thing is it's exposing how insane the liberals really are.......keep this insanity going like ya'll have been and you'll be dealing with this man for another 6-1/2 years.

    but the best thing is it’s exposing how insane the liberals really are

    He is? To whom? Certainly for such a bold claim you can point to some sort of polling showing Trump moving the needle on something, right?

    For instance, are SJWs less powerful now than they’ve been, or is their power increasing? Are FB & Twitter more or less willing to quash dissent? Is the MSM backing off pushing the SJW line? Even if you can’t provide a poll, provide some examples of Trump having a meaningful impact on anything.

    From my POV, Trump has made things much, much worse. He’s coarsened debate even more than it was, making things even more WWE than they were before. He’s served as a foil that the Dems can use to make things worse. CA Dem candidates are full-throated in support of illegal immigration because of Trump; if Trump were like MLP they wouldn’t dare do that.

    The fact is that Trump’s just an entertainer. He hasn’t changed any minds. It’d be possible to use his ego to make him help the USA, but those in his audience lack the patriotism to help with that.

    Al Sharpton: Royal wedding shows white supremacy is ‘on its last breath’
    By Morgan Gstalter – 05/19/18 The Hill.com

    Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday’s nuptials between the U.K.’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a biracial American actress, show that white male supremacy is “on its last breath.”

    “When you got little white girls in Wales saying, ‘I want to be like Meghan,’ there’s a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath,” Sharpton said.

    “When you have little white girls in Arkansas look up and say, ‘I want to be beautiful and smart like Michelle Obama. I want to dress like the Obama girls (Sasha and Malia),’ that’s where that white supremacy is questioned,” Sharpton said. “White parents in their living room say, ‘We’ve got to do something.’ That’s what Trump played on. ‘We’re losing control of our own children.’”

    Sharpton went on to say white supremacist groups are “losing their minds” over the royal wedding. “They’re losing their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,” Sharpton said. “Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.”

    Trump has to pay for his tax cut somehow. Why not make Bezos and company do it? In any case, what are these regressives complaining about? Trump gave Amazon money with his tax cut, then takes some of it back. On the whole, Amazon's losses will probably not exceed their gains from the tax cut.

    If Mueller had evidence, Trump would already be charged. It doesn’t take two years to build a case when the NSA basically knows everything Trump has said, who he has said it to and where he has said it over the past ten years. There are probably 250 agents or more working on sorting out this case. The fact that they haven’t come out with anything even remotely interesting is indicative of the fact there is nothing.

    Do you really think that Trump is capable of pulling off an elaborate scheme that would necessitate millions of 115 IQ+ man hours per year over two years to unravel?

    You seem like a smart guy but your bias against Trump is clouding your insight. Remember, you once wrote over 5,000 words about the ancient Egyptians being sub-Saharan black African despite having little knowledge on Egyptian history, never having even visited Egypt and ignoring the outcome of dozens of genetic studies.

    Why don’t you research a topic, build evidence and then apply your fluid writing skills to creating factually sound, compelling arguments?

    Correct. I’d go further and say that if there were any real evidence against Trump by now, it would have been fed to friendlies in the MSM and be everywhere 24/7. But in two years, tens of millions of dollars of DNC/Hillary opposition research, plus hordes of eager Trump-hating journos and bloggers and corrupt FBI agents has produced… zip.

    Corvinus argued that the ancient Egyptians were sub-Saharan Africans? LOL! Has he never seen the thousands of portraits and sculptures from those times? You can find some Nubians, sure, but they aren’t the pharaohs or the bulk of the people represented.

    You think so? My experience says the opposite...I taught HS and MS'ers thoughout the aughts, and though coastal kids were as you described, as soon as I got back to Midlandia, I saw a different species. As example: in an English class, we were using political essays for persuasive writing practice. The conservative/traditional column (do not remember whose I used) was met with acceptance, but boy, when I read Maureen McDowd -- the tension, to say the least, was palpable -- particularly among young males. And the support for Trump is almost universal until you get to the university town or one of the two big cities in the state. Rural youngsters know they are referred to as bitter clingers and deplorables by the elite for their traditional values, and they're rarin' to fight back....as election results showed (I think my state went DT by something like 10 points.)

    Just accidentally stumbled onto a Vox article claiming Trump was "authoritarian" (in what universe?) and "hideously unpopular" and thought "Geez, that's the very definition of the out-of-touch coastal elite." The left is NOT popular among GenZ unless you are in, say, Seattle or St. Louis. So I see hope yet for the generation some are writing off as hopelessly brainwashed.

    I taught HS and MS’ers thoughout the aughts

    Then it sounds like you’ve got the wrong generation, by about a decade. The oldest Gen Z’ers are high schoolers today. It’s a nice anecdote about millennials, though, but nobody thinks of millennials as being an overall conservative generation.

    The profit on non alcoholic beverages is unbelievable. If the waiters load the glasses with ice a restaurants can get thousands of $2.00 drinks out of a gallon of coke syrup.

    Coffee’s about the same profit, a little coffee, a little milk drop of vanilla a little sugar a blender full of ice and viola, a $7. 00 coffee slushy. Starbucks doesn’t need much turnover to make a profit.

    Starbucks don't have kitchens. No health department compliance. They sell a shitload of food (prepared elsewhere) for no kitchen. In some suburban stores, drive through is over 50% of revenue.

    My guess is that Starbucks will experience minimal financial consequences from this. However, it could signal peak Starbucks. Chipotle was derailed by its food poisoning incident.

    Revenues in Q2 totaled a record $6 billion, up 14% over last year, driven by comp increases of 2% globally and in the U.S. and 4% in China. Importantly, we saw comps accelerate in both the U.S. and China throughout the quarter, giving us confidence in both our full year and long-term guidance. At the same time, we opened nearly 500 new Starbucks stores globally in the quarter, and now operate over 28,000 stores in 76 countries, with our newest class of stores continuing to deliver best-in-class operating and financial performance and returns. And our record Q2 non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.53 represents an increase of 18% over last year.

     

    This was their 1Q conference call. 2% comps isn't great but it hit their guidance.

  • @Them Guys
    I saw Goldberg while flipping thru tv channels and he was on fox glen beck show. This is some while back as I have quit viewing All forms tv msm news. Anyways, Beck's show was on the recent banks snafus and bail outs if I recall....And the tv screen was a split screen of two different sets of "experts" guest talker heads.....On right side screen was that guy famous for his very good expose' book on the "Fed Reserve and Jekel Island" ties...Cannot now recall his name nor title of book...Maybe Edwin or Edward something or other?

    And soon becks show talk gravitated to stuff on how early soviet commies marxism in Russia had much to answer for about todays fucked up usa etc.

    Then beck says "Lets ask our guest expert Goldberg about the histories on Marxist commies."

    Then Goldberg being at left side screen square box immediately spewed forth crap spin of how "Well yes glen but First I just Must get This out and out of the way for I am certain a few anti-Semitic neo-Nazis are going to cry buckets if it isn't stated....So, let me start by admitting that Yes a FEW a Small Few of the original of top soviet commies were in fact jewish!.....However!! Let me also point out the Fact that besides they being so small a few jewish soviets....All of those Few were also Atheists!...…..At which becks brainless live audience cheered and clapped for goldbergs honesty at naming jews etc.....They were totally oblivious to the fact that jews played a Huge much greater roll in Trotsky and Lennin's jewish revolt against Whites and Christians in Russia eh.

    Then a commercial break, back to show again, and beck turns to his other guest expert(a True white guy expert as his famed book expose' of fed reserve proves)…..And that guy at screen right side, begins to relate how todays fed reserve banks are connected to soviet Russian jewry and Zionists.....Soon as his words of jewry & zios was uttered....Beck quickly stepped in and cut him off, sputtered some spin crapola and said Oh time for another commercial break folks, we shall return to this exciting info afterwards so stay tuned!

    Soon as show returned from break, beck 100% ignored the truth teller guest and allowed goldberg total free reign to take over entire show conversation as well as beck had quests ask questions Goldberg was happy to answer.....That other guest guys face showed his true thoughts...He realized Beck only invited him on show to garner more viewers from the type on right that do get it( like most here at unz as example). And Beck would never quit playing his role as jewrys gatekeeper.

    But that crap first spewed by Goldberg of a tiny few atheistic jew ran soviet, so just blow off fact of any jew involvement as a non issue folks!......Showed his true jew "spots" which like a leopard's spots cannot ever change...A typical lying jewy little jewboy Goldberg.

    And yes if anybodys wondering....Beck did do one of his famous Babbling-Crying episodes as per usual from beck. What a fuckin pure Joke Goldberg and Beck both truly are eh.

    A highly over paid Shabozz goy with his current jewish boss handler clown. And becks tv live audience ate it up as truth like well trained circus animal neocon repubs.

    But this is the major method used by phony jewish "expert" psycho babblers. By making mention of soviet jews as very first sentence, Goldberg gained total 100% confidence of becks tv audience as well as 99% of fox tv viewers across America as being a "Good and Honest" jew and one more than willing to broach that huge Taboo of jew issues eh.


    For rest of their lives this experience will fortify and enhance those folks will to action as fast kneejerk defenders of jewry and zios regardless of anything else period. Due to being subjected to goldbergs expertise and him being so good of a jew guy he admitted a few, a small few soviets were jewish!


    Just like them always defenders of negroes no matter what..."But Hey man...I once 20 yrs ago worked with a black guy at a factory line. And he was a really good black guy on every issue you can think of".

    Well gee aint he so lucky eh.....Maybe if he can spend another 20 yrs searching he shall locate yet Another good black guy. Then really be able to brag it up to prove he aint no rayssis.

    When I first found out that Jews were instrumental in the Bolshevik revolution it wasn’t their race that held my attention. It was the fact they were from New York.

    THE “GAY MARRIAGE” RACKET AND THE “EQUAL RIGHTS FRAUDSTERS”

    Thanks for the interesting article, Madam.

    There are many liberals who are trying to argue in support of "gay marriage" claiming that it is protected under the constitution under the "equal rights" clause.

    If “equal rights” is to be taken literally and if it means therefore that gays can also “marry” each other (of the same gender) because a man can marry a woman, then why can’t a man marry his sister--if both sides consent? Or marry 5 women simultaneously—if they all consent? They have "equal rights" too. Why should they be denied their preferred lifestyle if gays can have theirs?

    The liberals cannot answer that question.

    “Equal rights” simply means that the govt. cannot discriminate against one compared to another SIMILARLY SITUATED according to a list of criteria. The list of criteria the govt. can use can be quite long and is for the govt. to set.

    For liberals, scamming is Job 1.

    As always, I stand to be corrected.. and hope corrections will increase everyone’s understanding.

    Democracy is the human right of self-determination

    The words gay marriage, gun rights, abortion rights, religious rights, immigrants, etc. are symbols; designed to foster arguments which provide vehicles to manipulate public opinion by propaganda. Propaganda weakens the political powers of the governed slaves. Argument and dissension divide the masses into opposed groups. (Like a see saw, if the two sides with nearly opposite intentions, are made nearly equal in power; a third party can manipulate the outcome of the struggle.

    How is delivery a "natural monopoly"? Lots of firms do it. It is only statute that gives the Post Office the monopoly it has.

    A natural monopoly is where production costs of a single firm are lower than production costs by multiple firms. A single post office company can build out its delivery network and spread the cost over the larger network. Multiple post office companies don’t have as great economies of scale and can’t spread out their production costs.

    Keep in mind as well that Hispanic-white intermarriage rates are very high, which leads to Hispanic birth rates converging down to the white birth rate (which itself is lowering).

    About a third of all 2nd-gen or later Hispanics intermarry with whites. As do about a fourth of all 2nd-gen or later Asians.

    Some portion of the Hispanics are white to begin with, though certainly not a majority. So Hispanic and white are not mutually exclusive categories.

    But your point would stand if we say that nonwhite Hispanics marrying whites will typically go on to have no more than two children on average, instead of the higher number for nonwhite Hispanics in the USA.

    Goldberg hates national identities (although he makes an exception for Israel)
     
    Yeah the word for that is "Jewish." There are always exceptions, but this is the overwhelmingly dominant Jewish position (though if we're quibbling we might add "White" before "national identities," as Jews really only care about annihilating the cohesion of groups they can pass for. In other words, if Jews look enough like your people that many have a hard time distinguishing the two with certainty, you're fucked.

    At its best, PC is a way to show respect to people. If black people don’t want to be called “Negroes,” it is only right and proper to respect that desire. If Asians object to “Oriental,” lexicological arguments can’t change the fact that it is rude not to oblige them.

    Also PC: "Nobody gives a fuck what you want to be called, whitey. You're white, lower-case w, now STFD and STFU."


    I am intrigued how often Goldberg, who is essentially recycling conventional views interspersed with chunks of history that seem to have been extracted from a high school survey, uses the phrase “I tend to believe…”
     
    I even try to excise this kind of crap from my comments to blog posts. So my internal editor when I'm writing blog comments is superior to Goldberg's when he's writing books he's probably already sold for a pretty penny to top publishers.

    I tend to believe that high levels of immigration, particularly skills-based immigration, are economically desirable policies. Also, the evidence that low-skilled immigration is a net detriment to the country is not as cut-and-dried as some claim. (The field of economics that studies immigration is shot through with methodological and ideological problems.)
     
    Except for Israel, because that's (((our))) backyard.

    From my own personal experience, this I have found to be generally true. I think most commenters would agree. Sadly, it is one of the main reasons White America is in its present mess.
     
    It's absolutely true. I was just commenting the other day in another forum how pathetic White Americans are in this regard. If you want the proper mental picture, just watch a western with a scene about a snake oil salesman pitching rubes. That's exactly how White Americans are about race and politics. They're about as sophisticated as Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel. Their naive status anxiety is what makes them susceptible to the transparently destructive schemes of diversity, multiculturalism, "anti-racism," etc.

    “Wow, she looks really Jewish. But that can’t be true, because Jews are only like 2% of the population, and it would almost take a racist Jew to find another Jew to marry, especially in light of how egalitarian and anti-racist and race-blind and pro-diversity and pro-multiculturalism Jews are.”

    Leaving aside Jonah Goldberg’s published writings and public utterances, those seeking to condemn him and more particularly his wife and daughter for the unpardonable sin of Jewishness are rather tipping their hands.

    Jonah Goldberg’s mother, Lucianne, is a gentile raised Episcopalian. His wife, Jessica Gavora, is a gentile from a devout Catholic family: father Slovak expatriate; mother Irish-American. Jonah Goldberg identifies as Jewish (his father is Jewish), but the only standard by which his daughter and wife are counted as Jewish is the malevolent, inclusive, genocidal standard. The rabbinical arbiters of the exclusive, halachic standard probably classify Jonah Goldberg himself as a gentile.

    You are begging the question. Traditionally and legally as well, in all western countries, marriage was "available" only to non-sibling adults, as you say. It was also available only to heterosexuals. Being non-siblings and adults were requirements but _of course_ it was also a requirement that the pair were not same-sex. (Even the legally significant "I now pronounce you man and wife" underlines the fact.)

    The reasonable point raised earlier could be framed as follows: Why did the court recently decide to ask (1) whether same-sex pairs should be granted the same marriage rights as other pairs of non-sibling adults, but not (2) whether sibling pairs of adults should be granted the same rights as non-sibling pairs, or (3) whether non-sibling non-same-sex groups of more than 2 should be granted the same rights as non-sibling non-same-sex goups of only 2?

    There is no real or principled answer. There is just the fact that, for now, the powers that be seem to have decided they want homo-marriage but not incest-marriage or poly-marriage. It's about advertising and culture war, certainly not some technical or philosophical principle based on the law or constitution...

    Maybe I don't understand your question or suggestion. Are you asking whether US laws defined marriage as a man-woman union prior to the recent gaymarriage SCOTUS decisions? The answer is yes, of course. That's not some arcane legal question you need to check with a lawyer. Are you asking whether such laws _also_ define it as monogamous and non-incestuous? Yes, they did and still do. So the question here is why we should retain those other kinds of limits on "equal" marriage rights but not the first (and far more obvious, natural, essential) kind of limit.

    You are obviously no stranger to good reasoning but perhaps unfamiliar with the legal reasoning or judicial technique by which courts attempt to discipline themselves respectably. I stand to be corrected in my understanding of the situation in America brought about by the Bill of Rights Amendments (and the 14th I think). Other common law countries have suffered from activist judges but the US constitution as amended seems to make law making by judges frequent and almost compulsory (not that traditional technique hasn’t stretched to novelty; e.g. would you believe that radio and television weren’t mentioned in the 1901 Australian Constitution – do. air travel – but the central government decided that it had better make laws on the subject….. the Australian courts didn’t get in the way).

    If you are Indian I am sure I don’t need to spell out further how I think the judicial technique might get to where it has :-)

    Goldberg has been a little smarter about what he really thinks.

    Despite being very wary of the writings of our “fellow White people” I found it hard to disagree with Gottfried on his assessment. I’m not sure that he’d want them to be any different. Should they really think deeply about politics they would undoubtedly be labelled racist White supremacists.

    Yeah, that is what I think of as the first real "school shooting". Most of the "school shooting" statistics that get thrown around mix a variety of things together. Usually a big but unlabelled ingredient is gang retaliations at inner city schools. There is a lot of this in crappier zip codes, but the media don't bother reporting it except as statistical filler for their "school shootings every week" hair-on-fire ledes.

    What most people think of as a "school shooting" is a sudden outbreak of violence from someone formerly supposed harmless with no pragmatic motive. In other words, an "I Don't Like Mondays" shooting. These seem to be a byproduct of liberal modernity.

    Tell me why? ...
    And he can see no reasons
    'Cause there are no reasons
    What reason do you need to die?
     

    Right. There have been mass killings forever, but the modern age of them starts with the U. of Texas tower sniper in 1966(?), and the K-12 version starts with the I Don’t Like Mondays girl around 1980. The peak was Columbine in the late 1990s or 2000. There were lots of Columbine copycats, but the one I covered for UPI in early 2001 was the last classic Columbine-style one for a few years. I think maybe they got boring and unfashionable, and then 9/11 came along to distract people for awhile.

    My guess is that they are tied to a decline in fears of going to hell. For example, see “Hamlet” where concerns about hell stay Hamlet’s hand from killing himself (To be or not to be) and from killing his praying uncle, who wouldn’t go to hell like he deserves because King Claudius was begging God for forgiveness.

  • From commenter Last Real Calvinist:
  • @SimplePseudonymicHandle
    There's likely something to this, but don't confuse cause and symptom, or cause and post hoc rationalization.
    Something to put under a microscope are the attribute clusters around: sympathy-for-the-needing/nearby, as opposed to: sympathy-for-the-needing/far-away.

    This is seeming to matter a lot. The anti-nationalist, pro-globalization crowd seems amp'd up on the latter and dangerously deficient in the former.

    The real-world needs of the nearby-needing, are answered by cosmopolitans, with contempt.

    Before getting too far down a full-blow Haidtian interpretation of the latter, an aspect that I think we need to look at carefully is the attendant tendency for contempt-of-nearby-small-differences.

    The latter should be well-known to conservative crowds, think: the British and Irish. The Irish - from all around the world, gave off a lot of good reasons for sympathy that most of us - existing at a distance from Ireland - identify with whether we fit in either of the first two moral-suasion crowds.

    But not so much if you were British anytime in the last 150 years, the sympathy triggers only seem to operate just everywhere else in the Anglosphere.

    This is a bit of a trick to wrap the mind around because as far as British contempt for the Irish goes, odds are good that from time to time there's a valid British complaint. And yet--get the Irish out of Ireland, and everywhere they go they seem to thrive - not a fact that sustains a British sense of contempt for a perceived lack of virtue.

    There's people nearby, suffering, and they see strengthening nationalisms as the antidote to their suffering. There's others nearby who answer that suffering with contempt and pile on with the opposite of the former's desired antidote.

    I wonder if it's anything more than necessary simian tribalism and if you have two groups pressed against each other and one is at 49 and the other's at 51, but tribalism is all the way up at Yankee/RedSox levels (that's both pretty high and pretty normal), ... all 49 really needs to survive and thrive is separation from 51, but 51 is just being human and can't overcome its simian group programming to overcome the cold, comfort of watching 49 suffocate down to zero.

    Something to put under a microscope are the attribute clusters around: sympathy-for-the-needing/nearby, as opposed to: sympathy-for-the-needing/far-away.

    Perhaps the latter represents “purer” (thus “morally superior”) altruism?

    The real-world needs of the nearby-needing, are answered by cosmopolitans, with contempt.

    This is not a really a new trend. It’s been around at least long enough for Dickens to satirize it in Bleak House, where Mrs. Jellyby focuses on “telescopic philanthropy,” putting all of her time and energy into helping to set up a mission in Africa, while ignoring the needs of her own family and the poor in her own neighborhood.

    Her “Borrioboola-Gha project” ends in disaster when a local African chief attacks the project base, sells all the volunteers into slavery, using the money thus acquired to buy rum. Mrs. Jellyby, of course, merely moves on to another (distant) cause.

    Contemporary accounts often marvel at the ancient Greeks' golden hair and fair skin, some going so far as to say they all look that way. And from the DNA evidence it's starting to look like they were in fact Celts.

    Today's darker Greeks are an artifact of the Ottoman occupation.

    No. The DNA shows some Indo-European ancestry, as well as Sardinian-like ancestry from the earliest Anatolian farmers in Europe, plus a later layer of “eastern farmer” ancestry from eastern Anatolia/Mesopotamia. Not exactly the same ancestral mix you find in Ireland or Wales.
    The Greeks’ own accounts refer to golden hair and fair skin as features of Celts from NW Europe and Scythians from present-day Ukraine, not as “Greek” features. Plenty of Greek pottery and sculpture shows people who look a lot like good-looking modern Greeks and Southern Italians.

    Exactly. The ships are registered in places like Panama and employ very low-paid staff. However, a refined female Jewish acquaintance of mine who was a jeweller at Harry Winston in Beverly Hills was hired away by a cruise line. To sell high-priced and easily pocketed and hocked items they need to pay American rates for the staff, it seems.

    Ambivalent is a great improvement over La leyenda negra which is pretty much what constitutes the core knowledge and beliefs of typical Westerners with SJW inclinations about Spaniards and Catholics. There is lot of anti-Catholic and anti-Spanish animus which comes from Jews (Corvinas?), Protestant (Thor?) and Orthodox (Spisarevsky?) and Anglos for whom Spain was the toughest competitor in the early stages of British Empire. It is very sad that rich sources and archives that exist in Spain and Portugal were not incorporated into retelling the history anew. And probably they never will because simply there is no room left for it. A paradigm would have to be shifted. As a German you should appreciate the mechanism of who and how writes history and then how it is turned into 'the only truth' by incessant indoctrination of the mass culture.

    Very true!! The Black Legend was gestated by the British in cahoots with Portuguese and Dutch allies, pick the subgroups you want.Theodore de Bry has been debunked as propagandist but his engravings are still been recycled 300 years later. Same goes for Bartolome de las Casas (connoisseurs on Unz will appreciate knowing he was born in Sevilla, 1474, of jewish ancestry), debunked by historians like Pierre Chaunu, William Maltby and Menendez Pidal among others.

    Not that conquests are bloodless. People like Francisco de Carvajal and Panfilo de Narvaez were cruel and pitiless, but Carvajal was executed by orders of the Spanish King. Cristopher Columbus, great marine but poor administrator, made his last trip back to Spain in chains.

    On the other hand the Spanish Crown built 13 universities before Harvard was built, as well as a network of hospitals and charities, charged with accepting both Indians and Spaniards alike. Compare to British colonial policies, with endless –but endless– massacres of Indians and their basic sustenance: the bison. Mestizo populations happened under Spanish policy, but go find me mestizos on former British colonies.

    Interestingly, there is today in Spain a more solid base of thinkers and media outlets that denounce the reigning Globalism, globalists, One Thought (pensamiento único) and gender ideology than anything I have seen in English. They are not so worried about whether Stalin or Hitler were good or bad. Even Franco bashers do not derail them. They are fighting the ideologies in power, and naming the persons/organizations/networks that spearhead them. Not “the jews” but specific names like Bildeberg or Soros. Why is Soros never named on Unz?

    It's interesting what you are saying about Spain now because I was always wondering about positive leftovers from Franco. Where were they? Was everything that Franco achieved lost and Spain became the most liberal post-modernist European country? Could you write more about it or give some links?

    As far as Black Legend there is no question that most Anglo world still believes it and anti-Spanish and anti-Catholic attitudes are prevalent. It is still in the pop culture like Monty Python sketches about Spanish Inquisition. The bottom line is that philosophies and policies of Spaniards and English were drastically different resulting in much better outcomes for Indians in Latin America. Then came Americans who became much worse than the British. The push for the American Revolution came from land grabbers who wanted to break Indian-British treaties that the Brits seemed to be respecting.

    Talking about Jews what you seem to be disapproving is essential for understanding history and what is taking place. The world w/o Jews can't be understood. But you are right that more attention should be placed on various institutions like Bilderbergs and NGO funded by Soros to understand how and where policies are formulate and how members of political class are indoctrinated and taught the "party line." Where is the central committee of the party?

    By agreeing to NK’s demands, Trump could pull back, tell South Korea, Japan, and others to deal with their own defense, and focus on rebuilding the economy at home with favorable trade policy.
     
    No he could not, because North Korea is not appeasible on the security front. Kim is not the Lone Ranger worried about US invading and overthrowing him, he is working for China, which has got his back whatever happens. The US would not make ray Cline's mistake a second time, they would not dare hit kim even with a raid.

    Kim is a Chinese attack dog, and the only way to get him called off is to make concessions to China on trade, so Trump cannot focus on rebuilding the economy at home with favorable trade policy unless he ceases to wander through the maze of peace and nuclear disarmament that wily oriental mercantilists led by China are trying to mystify him with.

    Strong military forces should be maintained in Korea and South Korea should be made to pay for them, Japan too. The tables should be turned on China and the obvious fact that they are using Kim as a wedge to continue the economic rape of the West should cease to be ignored. China, aided by venal Western globalist, is on track to bury us. Militarism and economic nationalism can work in synergy to defeat China's fiendish plan for world domination by eroding productive capacity all across the west. Domestic policy is subordinate to foreign policy so a Cold War will go nicely with authoritarianism at home--per a smackdown of greedy hypercapitalist elites--and encouraging Israel into ethnic cleansing will nullify the pro immigration lobby.

    No he could not, because North Korea is not appeasible on the security front. Kim is not the Lone Ranger worried about US invading and overthrowing him, he is working for China, which has got his back whatever happens.

    Why can’t the US agree to NK’s demands? The US could easily withdraw from the Korean peninsula and tell South Korea and Japan to deal with NK themselves. Are you saying that the US can’t do this? Why not? NK might be a threat to SK and Japan, but how would it be a threat to the US?

    Why does agreeing to NK’s demands entail making trade concessions to China? Like I said, the US could agree to NK’s demands, withdraw from East Asia, and let SK, Japan, Russia, and anyone else deal with NK if they feel threatened. There’s no reason to make trade or any other concessions, unless the US insists on being involved in the region.

    Strong military forces should be maintained in Korea and South Korea should be made to pay for them, Japan too.

    How does the US do this without making concessions to SK and Japan? Both SK and Japan have a large trading relationship with China, and significant constituencies that favor a closer relationship with China and accommodating Chinese regional hegemony and opposing US influence in the region. The US makes trade and other concessions to SK, Japan and others, even places like Australia where the US accepted refugee transfers from, in order to get them to go along with US foreign policy against China.

    You go with the classical music, and you do "club" or premium stores where people buy memberships and can stay as long as they want. They could just sell coffee and not even have stores at all but there is the problem is that their coffee sort of sucks.

    This is a good combination of "you can't have nice things" in a diverse, low trust society, combined with capitalist greed and over-expansion.

    Coffee-houses work great in a high trust society, yes you have someone conducting their business during the day on one cup of coffee, but with some gentle reminders he makes way for the family coming in, or he brings in his business associates next time and they all order lunch and it all works out somehow. If everyone is basically at war all the time with people in the wrong cultural/ ethnic group this can never work. If you have a store at all you sell your items from behind bullet proof glass, silently. And not incidentally, one clue that the USA is now a low trust society is that you rarely see customers talk to each other in a Starbucks. In past centuries, coffee houses is where you went for conversation (you went to taverns to hook up with prostitutes).

    Capitalist over-expansion as well. I went to the original Starbucks or one of the original ones in Seattle in 1991 and it was a cool coffee-shop. It had to be bought out and turned into an empire. Well you do this, you get a big corporate bureaucracy, and eventually you have to put more and more stores in downscale areas. Eventually the entire business model goes downscale. You also put independent stores and more reasonably scaled chains out of business on the way. McDonalds followed a similar trajectory. Limit or ban chains and the Philadelphia "incidents" don't happen, if nothing else because these particular stores don't exist.

    Apples Stores are not exactly popping up like dandelions in vibrant neighborhoods.

And we do not give a damm about rusophobic professionals such as Ucrania , Georgia , Poland , Rumanians , the Baltics and other american ass lickers , we do not want them in the EU , all they want is money .

    My opinion on this, is that the EU is run much like the US. Both are headed by commercial/industrial oligarchies with elites who are always ready to sell out the public for higher profits with uncontrolled outsourcing etc. (Brexit was a fight against this).

    The current problem is a fight between elites. Nord Stream 2 and the Iran Airbus contract are elite EU projects that the EU’s “friends” in the US shouldn’t interfere with, and, even worse, the US says that this is only the start of the sanctions process if the EU doesn’t disengage from Russia and Iran.

    The EU (Germans & French) know that Skripal and “Russian Hacking” was fabricated BS and they fully support the Iran JCPA agreement that is working well.

    So it’s irritating for them that the Israeli Special Interest is being put ahead of their Special Interest, especially as the European public is starting to wake up to the US free pass on every kind of abuse against the Palestinians (EU elites couldn’t care less, but they do keep an eye on public opinion).

    Of course we also have the alternate version in which the killer aggressively pursued a female student and then made her his first victim.
     
    We can never know the exact reason in each case, and it may be complex.

    However a generation of schoolchildren is growing up in the US that knows that school shootings are a thing. Even my five-year-old daughter knows all about what to do in active shooter drills, so every teenage boy, including all the future mental patients, psychos, and criminals, will know all about school mass killings and some of them may take steps in that direction, usually when they feel that life is not worth living any more, and they would like to take some enemies with them when they die by suicide or by cop.

    This phenomenon seems to be much more common in the US than in other countries. I cannot imagine why, but Americans are an ingenious and inventive people, even if sometimes slow to catch on, and I am sure they will eventually find a way to deal with the phenomenon.

    The best approach is probably to find some way to make it profitable for corporations to prevent school shootings.

    Oh, come on. It’s the guns.

    Nobody can say it, because it sounds way too spergy to claim it’s justified, but the cost of having the ability to shoot your government if they get too tyrannical is that once in a while some nutjob goes off the deep end and shoots someone he doesn’t like, and once in a while that nutjob is a teenager, and his enemies are going to be his age, like most people’s.

    It’s actually not that huge a number of casualties compared to other things, a few hundred a year in a nation of 300 million–school shootings are rare. But in a country this size you can always find a few. And then the liberal media blows them up. And, well, it’s naturally horrifying–everyone wants to protect their kids.

    You can’t always get everything you want. More diversity means less socialism, and the right of revolution means a higher rate of gun violence. Jefferson said almost as much in a different context–the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants *and patriots*. You pays your money and you takes your choice.

    You are too cynical, Z Man. It really is far bigger than Watergate, and Trump is going to use it to smash the Democrats in November and far beyond. He and Sessions have been planning this for over a year. Lots of Democrats will be indicted. Obama himself may not be, but he'll be forever disgraced. Hillary might well be headed for prison. The MSM will be humiliated. I foresee some sort of political realignment. The pearl-clutching and tears on the left will be epic.

    One would hope. If you don’t mind my asking, how do you know this?

    I am making a prediction, based on watching Trump for a year and a half. Once you've read Scott Adams on Trump, you realize he's very good at persuasion, and also a fan of Sun Tzu. I think I can see what Trump has been doing, and it'd be remarkable if he wasn't doing what I predict. Check out The Conservative Treehouse: they have a good reputation for figuring out things like this, based purely on analyzing open sources. They figured out the Michael Brown shooting long before the official report confirmed their findings.

    I am concerned that Starbucks providing a platform for blacks to play classical music will normalize cultural appropriation.

    “I am concerned that Starbucks providing a platform for blacks to play classical music will normalize cultural appropriation.”

    Michelle Obama and Meaghan Markle already did that by straightening their hair while maintaining they were proud women of color.

    Of course, it’s only normalized for the usual suspects.

    Al Sharpton: Royal wedding shows white supremacy is ‘on its last breath'
    By Morgan Gstalter - 05/19/18 The Hill.com

    Rev. Al Sharpton said Saturday’s nuptials between the U.K.’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a biracial American actress, show that white male supremacy is “on its last breath.”

    "When you got little white girls in Wales saying, 'I want to be like Meghan,' there's a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath," Sharpton said.

    "When you have little white girls in Arkansas look up and say, 'I want to be beautiful and smart like Michelle Obama. I want to dress like the Obama girls (Sasha and Malia),' that's where that white supremacy is questioned,” Sharpton said. “White parents in their living room say, 'We've got to do something.' That's what Trump played on. 'We're losing control of our own children.’”

    Sharpton went on to say white supremacist groups are "losing their minds" over the royal wedding. “They're losing their minds because the world is passing away where they are the standard,” Sharpton said. “Where they decide what is beauty, where they decide what is of intellectual depth.”

    Hakluyt, the Anglo "Black Cube" equivalent where Stefan Halper worked, also once employed Peter Mandelson, who has been described as the Svengali of both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. It's pretty much the deep state hanging a literal shingle.
    Richard Hakluyt (I guess this is an English name. I would have bet it was a word from a certain language associated with starting all the wars in the world) was an Age of Exploration geographer and compiler of explorers' narratives.

    Hakluyt was probably one of those Scandinavian names from the invasions.

    It’s probably been anglicized to something like Hacklett by now

    Hakluyt is a famous name in Anglo-American history. During Shakespeare's day, he wrote influential books promoting the colonization of North America.

    Incidentally, I had to check my stereotypes when my wife and I went for a cruise on the Carnival Spirit last year. The music at afternoon tea time was provided by a a double bass and viola – played by two black musicians who were extremely competent.
    Maybe Howard should give ‘em a call…

    You must know I don't read your spam here.

    Using replies as a vehicle for propaganda is O.K. but shouldn't you, at least, put some of your own thoughts there? The rest of "Team Russia" at least put some effort.
    This spam of yours just feels lazy. You are doing disservice to your team.

    Too hard? Supervisor orders, perhaps ?

    Ah, well.....

    Annamaria is a doing a great job. Her investigations are very interesting and informative. The world is yearning to be free of the Zio rule. The seven nations to destroy game for the 911 false flag is so barbaric. Why is the US and Israel using the worst aspects of the Old testament to destroy our planet? The seven nations to destroy idea comes from Deut. 7:1-2. Christopher Bollyn names names for the 911 false flag. His book should be mandatory reading for all westerners. If his book was more well known, all the wars in the ME would end in one second.
