Bombshell leaked emails showing that Amazon strikebreakers uses racial diversity to ensure workers at Whole Foods never unionize only confirms taboo research showing that multiculturalism destroys civic cohesion and engagement of all kinds.

Unionized workers — and their threat to strike — is a massive threat to executive bonuses and a companies stock value. America’s plutocrats are the wealthiest in the world, even as living standards for the majority decline.

According to Amazon’s internal documents, more racially homogenous stores, which is usually codeword for white, have higher rates of sales, but tend to be “hot spots” for the threat of unionization. In other words, it’s not even totally economic, but also a question of power. Jeff Bezos would rather sell fewer products than have to negotiate any conditions with his workers.

Diversity and the Death of Labor

On this front, white workers are alone. The left today prioritizes liberal concepts of “diversity” far above the common man’s economic interests. In their discourse, self-described socialists will rely on Cato Institute studies showing immigration improves GDP to dismiss the Hecksher-Olin-Samuelson (HOS) model that shows immigration inevitably weakens labor’s bargaining power. What do self-described “socialists” think of legalizing child labor, which would also boost GDP? The libertarian ghouls at Cato support this too!

The work of elite Jewish globalists like Ruth Milkman (2006) has been highly influential in articulating the theory that labor unions should support open borders legislation in order to legalize and organize migrants. According to advocates of this strategy, which the AFL-CIO has embraced since the 1990s, mass immigration is not something modern nation-states can do anything about (proven to be a lie by recent COVID-19 border closings around the world), so unions must adapt to mitigate the impact of illegal immigrant labor and guarantee a future as an institution.

The promised mass organizing of immigrants never materialized. Instead the withering away of solidarity caused by scab labor and increased diversity in the West has been a major factor in the free fall of union membership. As the AFL-CIO changed its tune on immigration, working class political power simultaneously declined. The Democratic Party now ignores working people and embraces its role as a puppet of Wall Street and Silicon Valley donors.

The only alternative for white labor is the GOP, which despite owing its electoral success to this demographic, doesn’t want it.

Leftists would argue that the failure of their “internationalist”/globalist theory is because of white privilege and racism — exclusion of immigrants, rather than changing their socially conservative internal culture to encourage them to join up. But the actual correlation is the other way around: the more pro-immigration organized labor is, the weaker it gets.

According to Julie Watts’ 2002 study of labor attitudes, Immigration policy and the challenge of globalization: Unions and employers in unlikely alliance, countries with unions with strong communist and anarchist backgrounds like Spain and France were some of the most eager to embrace a pro-immigration position. Today, union membership in Spain has essentially collapsed to lower rates than even the United States. France, another nation where labor supports open borders, has experienced something similar, with its unions struggling for relevance even as Yellow Vest discontent swept through the streets.

The excuse communists and left-liberals make is that labor power in Europe was destroyed during the 2008 financial crisis. Yet Iceland, which suffered one of the worst financial meltdowns in Europe during the same period, continues to lead the world in labor union participation at 92%. What is Iceland’s secret? Up until 2018, it was one of the most racially homogenous countries on earth, with virtually no immigration for 1,000 years.

Rather than learning and adapting to real world conditions, the left has only moved the goalposts further and further to rationalize its cosmopolitan, neo-liberal first principles. At The Baffler, a “socialist” journal that pays authors $900 per piece, the Jewish author Jamie Marchant took to attacking the idea of economic nationalism more broadly. According to the full-time academic, tariffs and trade agreements that protect American workers are also racist and unions should stop lobbying for them because they take jobs from workers in Mexico. This insane inversion of common sense is predicated upon the idea that nations have no moral right to ensure capital serves its people first — how convenient for “global citizens” like Jeff Bezos.

The Kosher Third Position

As the Bernie moment subsides and the left comes to terms with being a vehicle for the political will of the elite, there is a rising intellectual movement composed of “national conservatives” and Catholic integralists taking hold on the peripheries of the Republican party looking to take white workers for another ride.

Figures like Marco Rubio, Josh Hawley and Matt Gaetz represent the political incarnations of these ideas. These men want to run for president in 2024.

The journal encapsulating this rising tendency is American Affairs, which often publishes intellectual works that transcend left and right.

By and large, the prominent voices at American Affairs endorse corporatism/solidarism — the pro-worker economic ideology of Benito Mussolini, the original Falangists and Adolf Hitler. But there’s one catch: all of its advocates are avowed “anti-racists,” and in very recent times, increasingly Jewish.

On the front page of the publication, we see the work of Jews with spotty histories as neocons or Zionists, like Compass’ Oren Cass, Blue Labour’s Maurice Glasman, Matt Stoller, and David P. Goldman. They are on the record as being hostile to anything even resembling “white nationalism,” in spite of the fact that the people they are talking about in their research today are by and large white.

The editor of the ostensibly Trumpian journal, Julius Krein, wrote an opinion piece days after the 2017 Charlottesville march claiming to have “regretted” voting for Trump after the president made the point that there was violence on “both sides.” The op-ed was nothing more than an “Antifa” rant.

Researcher Michael Dawson’s 1994 work studying the importance of race in developing a “linked fate” — collective consciousness — demonstrates that unity through blood and soil is the easiest and most efficient way to bring individuals together. Without a linked fate, individual workers do not feel compelled to sacrifice as individuals for a group — something every successful labor union has instilled in its militants.

There is an argument to be made that America, as a multi-racial country, must encourage cross racial labor organizing to some degree. The problem with pro-worker post-liberals, whether Catholic Integralists like Adrian Vermeule and Sohrab Ahmari or Yoram Hazony endorsed “national conservatives” flirting with Fascist ideas is that they actively attack any white advocacy whatsoever.

In a recent article criticizing these figures, paleo-conservative Scott Greer made the point that what animated Trump’s election in 2016 was a web of issues — preserving the European identity of the United States being a huge one. Instituting a Catholic theocracy is…a much tougher sell.

Any industrial policy or attempt at reviving America’s civic institutions will fail at launch without the racial question taken into consideration, as the anti-solidarity specialists at Amazon do. It’s not a zero-sum game to us, but it is to the phony right. If every race has a right to wield the power of ethno-nationalism in the fight over resources in America.
If America is going to work, we need racial syndicates side by side with class-based ones. If whites are denied this by their self-selected leaders, then they are no friends of white workers.

    White identitarians, ethnic and racial, recognize the natural biological, social, psychological and cultural hierarchy of family > ethnicity > race > class/economics, politics etc..

    There is some individual and circumstantial variation but sane social policy is guided by averages, not outliers. From infancy to adulthood and over millennia of history, these affinities have remained strong and real – not as mere social constructs, but as necessary social foundations.

    Attempting to organize men economically or politically without recognizing the reality and primacy of blood ties is a catabolic effort. Look at the history of labor movements in the US, Europe and even world-wide.

    How much effort, time and resources are presently wasted on maintaining these fake and fragile multicultural dog-cat alliances? And who benefits most from this divide-and-conquer strategy? Jewish global finance, Woke Capital pirate-ship multinationals and their apparatchik strivers and shills in the neoliberal soft-power complex.

    Striker’s right here – you can only build meaningful and lasting alliances across ethnic and cultural lines to the extent that each group is first grounded in their own sense of identity and group interest.

    Racially, ethnically and culturally aware workers organized in opposition to the interests of the 1% are what these elites fear most.

    Aim for the matador, not the cape.

    Look Eric Striker,

    I completely agree with blood and soil ties being necessary for a nation. That is why I support Europe for Europeans, and the americas for for its euromutts of various mixtures of native american blood and the negro descendants of slaves kidnapped and taken to the americas.

    The americas could only have been a blood and soil nation only if it had never been colonized. but it was and it can’t be undone.

    However my recognition of the multiracial destiny of the americas does not mean I support Jewish plutocrats and their nonsense.

    One out of three people in the US isn’t white so now it’s pretty much impossible to organize working class people in any industry. The bosses on top engineered this demographic shift for this very purpose. Divide and conquer is an old and effective strategy. Whatever is left of the Catholic element has been reduced by using the scandals of recent years as a battering ram. The white population itself is divided through the constant barrage of media and education system propaganda. Lots of the supposed liberal element would just love a Chinese style civic scorecard system as they vie to get the highest score. Scratch them and you’ll find a Red Guard underneath. Seems kind of hopeless but then there’s always events which rekindle hope. As pointed out, the bosses on top finance phony right and conservative groups and leaders as well as phony left ones also to channel discontent.

    Why are poor Mexican migrants and poor Black citizens in the same Globalist party?

    They are competing for the same jobs. Black Citizens should be in the Christian Populist party, not the Corporate SJW Globalist party. The DNC Globalists use race to prevent Christians from coming together to counter their Elite SJW Corporate greed.

  6. The americas could only have been a blood and soil nation only if it had never been colonized. but it was and it can’t be undone.

    Why on earth would colonization preclude a sense of ethnic territorial possession? Every agriculturally-productive centimetre of land on this earth has been colonized and then reconquered, with the original tribe then removed or absorbed into the conquerors, or their joining a wider religious group or something. The logic of your post precludes all ethnic groups from a sense of territory.

    White Americans need to create a story which states why they deserve their territory, and how it belongs to them. If they don’t – and actually publicly broadcast to all-comers and the entire world that their possession of the American territory is unjustified as they do currently – other people will come along and take it from them, very simple. North America is prime real-estate, there are plenty of suitors.

    it wouldn’t. importing and breeding negroes for slave labor and importing a multitude of ethnicities to a colonized land while enslaving the natives while breeding with them, on the other hand would prevent blood and soil ties to a land openly stolen and then populated by multiple ethnicities, some forcibly such as slaves, for the purposes of economic exploitation instead of creation of an ethnic homeland.

    If the vikings had conquered greenland and canada, let’s say all the americas. then they could form blood and soil ties.

    but if the vikings started importing non vikings and even negroes, then the result would be a cosmopolitan country founded for the purposes of money instead of an ethnic homeland.

    You have failed to mention that this story would have to justify that only euro-Americans would have exclusive claims to the Americas.

    Which can’t be done because if the story is based on might is right and conquest than the story doesn’t matter, Xi Jinping can claim the Americas as long as he mighty enough to take it.

    A story based in history and reality and any morality, could not justify exclusive euro-American claim to the americas.

    Euro-Americans just have to realize their ancestors left their homeland, and make the best of it. Sorry but you don’t pick your ancestors or their actions. History may be changed or forgiven, but thousands of years of non-european presence and millions of non European people in the americas can’t be eliminated. and if you propose to do so. than might is right and no homeland should be respected.

    Yes I know. This is how territory works. A group of people control it and then create histories – stories – which justify their ownership of that territory. Or in the case of the USA, they create histories which state that the controlling ethnic group does not deserve to own the territory.

    The ‘Native American’ ethnic groups had Asian ancestry, I believe. Therefore, according to your logic, they had no right to be in ‘the Americas’.

    You miss the main reason unions are now for immivasion: they are dominated by public sector employees.

    Roughly a third of public employees are unionized versus 5% of the private sector.

    More migration means more pro-government voters. And they aren’t even in job competition since migrants rarely have college degrees and sufficient English skills for most gov jobs. And governments don’t hire illegals at all.

    As for Jews, their peak domination of labor unions was 1900-1970, when unions were anti-migration. Samuel Gompers led the AFL from 1895-1924 for example.

    During the pro-migration era, the AFL-CIO was led by Lane Kirkland (English from South Carolina), Richard Sweeney (Irish) and Richard Trumka (Italian/Polish).

If that is the case the negroes, natives and all ethnicities that were permitted into the country have just as a legitimate claim to blood and soil.

    fyi I think the boer claim to the cape area is legitimate because it was empty.

    I speak of the americas and not solely the U.S because all the americas share this history, or interbreeding and multiethnic settling and slavery.

    Americans of all ethnicities will have to learn to get along. And I sincerely hope they do so, stoking unsolvable ethnic tension is a Jew trick.

    Liberalism is a replacement for Christendom. The peoples who built and maintained Christendom were white. Therefore, to all parts of the Left, whites generally are bad guys, and all traditional white cultures, meaning those that could be fairly easily redirected back toward a pre-Modern sensibility, are enemies to be eradicated.

    So it is a given that any time it can, the Left, even parts of the Left created by whites to help the working class, will act to destroy the white working class.

If that is the case the negroes, natives and all ethnicities that were permitted into the country have just as a legitimate claim to blood and soil.

    I don’t agree with that. Surely the logic is that ‘white people’ (American-created ethnic group) were the ethnic group that formed the American nation. Others were present during its formation, as minority groups (i.e. living under the rule of the dominant ethnic group). These original minority groups can continue to live as minorities (i.e. denoting a different assignation of rights) or alternatively assimilate into the majority group. A bit like how the Japanese ethnic groups exists as a clear entity with territorial claim, despite their being more original ‘native’ groups to the Japanese islands that live among them.

    fyi I think the boer claim to the cape area is legitimate because it was empty.

    I don’t think that really matters – I mean, I don’t see why this emptiness legitimises Boers’ claims to the Cape area (from which they’ve been displaced by British settlers BTW), but would then delegitimise Japanese claims, presumably. Territorial squabbles are impossible to resolve as the (tribal) humans can endlessly create justification for why their in-group deserves an area of land (under whichever rationale, whether that be historical ownership or due to it being ‘the will of God’, etc). In reality, ownership goes to whoever controls the territory. Self-confident groups will assert claims, bullied and demoralized groups will relinquish.

    I speak of the americas and not solely the U.S because all the americas share this history, or interbreeding and multiethnic settling and slavery.

    All nations are sort of multi-ethnic or can be conceived of like that. I could divide my native Scotland into Germanic/Anglo/Nordic types (more east coast), and then Irish Celts (west coast), What’s relevant is the conception of ethnicity, then hierarchy of ethnicities – ideally reflected in numerical dominance – and then the system through which minority groups can co-exist under the dominant group’s protection (where they wish to define themselves differently and not assimilate). Including some differentiation of rights, probably/perhaps. The term ‘ethnicity’ can enjoy different degrees of definition. You could try to say that everyone is of the same ethnicity where they submit to the same broad ideology/guiding worldview (e.g. Jesus Christ is our saviour, the pillars of Islam, ‘diversity is our greatest strength’) – irrespective of their genealogy – or more tightly in terms of their ethnic genealogy (e.g. Aryan blood).

    Europe cans close its borders and end the welfare state and it goes back to being monoethnic states(like former ussr states are.) If the U.S does the same the brown and black people will still be there, plus all the european ethnicities that immigrated.

    I don’t see why brown people can’t be assimilated and the blakz live as a minority.

    Just think about how many U.S states have non european names? One state is called New Mexico for christ’s sakes.

    I don’t see why everything needs to relate to Europe necessarily. Some Indians think of themselves as caucasian people – I’ve heard them call themselves the “original caucasians” – and they sometimes seem to assert a racial tie to white British people through this. Which is intuitive often given their looks (basically the same but with a tan).

    American unions were infiltrated from the get-go,

    Europeans never considered US unions real at all. The CIA was open about the infiltration in the mid-60s, but kept mum about the media for years after that.

    What European unions (and Japanese) know is that the above-ground union hall is a nice symbol, but the real organization is the blood ties of the workers. Vote in union elections in good times, sure. Know when you have to break legs the rest of the time.

    It’s no accident, though, that steel, mine, and truck unions came under lots of pressure. They were a hard nut to crack because the locals mattered more than the higher levels. This made them both hard to infiltrate and very influential.

    Railroad and longshoremen were pests, but they were just about automated out of existence. The bosses at the other industries know technology is on their side too.

    The deficit here ain’t being union. It’s being human. Benito and Adolf had flesh-and-blood workers to back them, and the work they did wasn’t going anywhere or being automated a century ago. It’s a whole different ballgame now.

    And to prove this was done deliberately all you have to do is consider the FACT that the same thing is happening all over Christendom, in every formally white country in the west, AT THE SAME TIME.

    There can be no doubt that this was deliberately socially engineered, and the goal is to forever disempower/disenfranchise white Christian people worldwide.

    We can’t vote our way out of this. The two parties are really just a kosher sandwich……both sides want open borders and white dispossession because jews fund both sides.

    To make matters worse, because of jewish influence/control, whites are not allowed to have a voice, not permitted to object to their own demise.

    The situation is absurd beyond belief.

    When I finally figured this out……I was in shock….I just couldn’t believe it.

    It’s no wonder so many of our people are so depressed and turn to substance abuse and suicide…..we literally have no future because the jews robbed us of our future.

    First of all, duh! Tell us something we don’t already know in spades; second, shouldn’t you refer to common person’s?

    In their discourse, self-described socialists will rely on Cato Institute studies showing immigration improves GDP ….

    Cato is a rich source of comic relief. In one policy paper, they put it this way:

    Less appreciated are the contributions that low-skilled immigrants make in improving the efficiency of the U.S. economy. To use the words of George Borjas (2001), low-skilled immigration greases the wheels of the U.S. labor market.

    One contribution of low-skilled immigrants is to make it possible for high-skilled workers to spend more time on the job and less time doing non-work related chores. Women account for an ever increas- ing share of the U.S. high-skilled labor force. In 2008, 48 percent of workers with a college degree were female (as were 54 percent of currently enrolled undergraduate students, meaning the female share of highly educated labor is likely to rise in the future). The majority of highly educated women are married to highly educated men (Isen and Stevenson 2010: 13). For both to work outside the home often requires hiring outside labor to care for children, clean the home, launder clothes, and tend to the yard. In a study of immi- gration’s impact on U.S. cities, Cortes (2008) finds that metropolitan areas that have had larger influxes of low-skilled immigrants have lower prices for dry cleaning, child care, housing cleaning, yard care, and other labor-intensive services. Lower prices for these services translate into more hours spent at work for high-skilled workers, par- ticularly among women with a professional degree or PhD (Cortes and Tessada 2009). Low-skilled immigration thus indirectly con- tributes to productivity growth by raising the effective supply of high- skilled labor.

    IOW, if you aren’t a YUPPIE, you don’t deserve a fair shot at the shit jobs foreigners are willing to do for less money. If you are a YUPPIE, keep your nose to the grindstone longer for your lords and masters.

    According to Amazon’s internal documents, more racially homogenous stores, which is usually codeword for white, have higher rates of sales, but tend to be “hot spots” for the threat of unionization. In other words, it’s not even totally economic, but also a question of power. Jeff Bezos would rather sell fewer products than have to negotiate any conditions with his workers.

    I see it purely as about economics rather than power. Homogeneous workforce = more sales and more unionization. More sales is great, but after workers unionize, is the store more profitable than it was before? If profits are lower, I see why Bezos is opposed.

    Also, is the worker composition causal with higher sales? I would guess workers come from the surrounding area. Areas with more white workers are likely to have larger white populations and be more upscale, thus more sales. Changing the distribution of workers doesn’t change the store’s clientele as much.

    So I see this move as purely economic.

    My question to you my fellow seekers of truth and higher ideals: what makes homogeneous racial groups of people be more cohesive? Is it a genetic characteristic? Is it learned of emergent? A combination perhaps?

    A possibility is given in the text:

    Researcher Michael Dawson’s 1994 work studying the importance of race in developing a “linked fate” — collective consciousness — demonstrates that unity through blood and soil is the easiest and most efficient way to bring individuals together. Without a linked fate, individual workers do not feel compelled to sacrifice as individuals for a group — something every successful labor union has instilled in its militants.

    So all you need is a mutual feeling of a linked fate?

    Allow me to posit a thought: perhaps is identity politics a trap preventing meaningful self-organization among those that want or need to do so? If so, then you have to pick your battle:

    – racial

    The whole idea of public sector unions always seemed absurd to me. Why is a union necessary when a “worker” is employed by a political structure, which makes no profit and produces nothing? If the incentive is to make the faux-worker immune from political considerations, that’s obviously not going to happen.

    Those unions are safe from interference in a way that no actual labor union has ever been. For that reason those unions provide nothing but reliable voting blocs for the political class. In an actual labor union, the voting blocs are a side benefit for politicians who will manipulate businesses in favor of union memberships, or more accurately, in favor of the union controllers.

    Excellent comment. It is time to take fifty percent of any us household’s income above $25 million per year and pay it to all us citizens as a universal basic income. Flat rate, no credits, deductions, exceptions. Treat capital gains the same as wage, salary, and interest income.

    This will hit the founders, executives, and major shareholders of any corporation that plays games to avoid taxes, whether Amazon, Google/Alphabet, ebay, Target, walmart (second or third largest online retailer in the usa), or whoever.

    But the biggest, fairest source of revenue to fund a universal basic income in the usa is this: place our God-given natural resources under public ownership. All revenue from extracting and selling our water, oil, natural gas, metals, and minerals gets paid equally to all non-incarcerated us citizens as a monthly UBI.

    As opposed to andrew yang’s favored Value Added Tax,
    here are ways to fund a large UBI without taxes on the general public:
    — 10% fed excise tax on marijuana products, a rapidly growing market
    — 20% fed excise tax on cash remittances to foreign countries

    The great majority of us citizens would not pay these latter two excise taxes, as most us citizens do not send cash abroad and do not buy marijuana products.

    In short: tax Bezos and Zuckerberg and Trump and the other plutocrats and take back our natural resources, then use the money to pay a ubi to all us citizens — who are at least 21 years old, are not incarcerated, and have filed fed income tax returns for the last three consecutive years.

All Americans were taught to identify with the Puritan settlement and the American revolution. Jews and the left now denounce Puritans as perpetrators of American Indian genocide. The Jewish owned New York Times has begun the 1619 project, whose historical revisionist aim is to identify the American revolution with the defense and perpetuation of slavery rather than the defense of liberty. There is hardly any opposition to the 1619 project aim of making whites a hated minority.

    We need to understand that racism does not mean hating another race.

    Indeed! The much maligned Enoch Powell was once asked/accused in a circa 1970 BBC interview if he was a racist. His response was ‘If by racists you mean that I recognized differences between races, then yes, I am a racist. If by racist you mean that I believe one race is inherently better than another, then no, I am not a racist’. I have lived by that creed for the most part. If I were Black, I would think Blacks were the greatest thing going. I’m not, so I don’t. That doesn’t mean I hate them.

    The interesting connection to this article was that the rank and file union members in the UK greatly supported Enoch Powell’s immigration stance. It was the leadership that didn’t. The same can be said for the US. Cesar Chavez and his United Farm Workers were a small cog in the AFL/CIO wheel. He and his membership were out “hunting” illegal immigrants. Any old time union member understood that immigration was the reserve army of capital used to attack wages and working conditions. The “new” leadership seems to have lost the ability to separate issues. The “old” trade unionists were opposed to immigration, not the immigrants. The legal immigrants did nothing wrong. They applied to enter and the applications were granted. You can’t blame someone for exercising a right. That carried through to the shop floor. The immigrant didn’t hire himself, but once hired, he became a “brother” and was entitled to all the protections of the collective agreement. That doesn’t mean you have to like your “brother”, immigrant or not, just support his rights.
    That seems to be lost on today’s generations.

    You have no clue about labour/industrial relations. Unions are obligated to provide a duty of fair representation, or can be subject to lawsuits. The issue was not whether they were allegedly doing what you claim, the issue was whether the company had done due diligence in proving its allegations, whether there were mitigating circumstances, or whether the punishment was excessive. Progressive discipline has been a staple of labor/industrial relations since WWII, unfortunately US business schools pretend it doesn’t exist.
    As for the $95 an hour, that wasn’t the wage, that was the cost of total compensation. In the mid-80s, Lee Iacocca warned the US auto industry was in danger because all of its competitors had some form of universal health care system, which cost their manufacturing up to 30% less. That doesn’t factor in the junk being designed by the US automakers and the absolute lack of quality control, both of which Ralf Nader pointed out in the mid-70s.
    The US auto manufacturers responded by supporting NAFTA which saw massive plant closures in the US and Canada.
    As for the UAW, its leadership, like many large unions, does not necessarily reflect the attitudes of the rank and file membership, just like governments seldom reflect the attitudes of the electorate.

    I will continue to maintain that to kill a weed, you have to stop watering it. Jewish method and power is derived through usury taken via the money system (and other various rent schemes.)

    Everything else is subordinate. You cannot have your syndicate or a patriarchy until the money power problem is dealt with.

    Our Jewish friends will resist having the money power stripped from their crooked hands, in the same way that any non-jew plutocrat would.

    “This guy never paid a dime out of his own pocket for his unbelievably generous Federal pension, but he feels that all of us who actually paid into the SS fund are “leeches” sucking the Federal piggy bank dry (even though it’s basically a separate fund).”

    You speak the truth, Mustapha.

    I know government workers, both retired and still in the work force, who, in my opinion, have fantastic (I do mean fantasy) and bizarre notions of their own worth compared with others. There’s a neighbor of mine who was disabilitied out of his big-city cop job while in his early 40s. I never asked, and he never offered the nature of the disability. He’s probably in his late 50s now, and appears physically okay. He’s never worked since I’ve known him, and every 2 or 3 years he shows up in a new vehicle. His current ride is an oversized pick-up I’ve ball-parked at 60 grand. I guesstimate his disability income at least $3000 a month and probably much more. I’m confident he regards it as unremarkable that his is one of the costliest vehicles on our parking lot, driven by a man who hasn’t seen a workplace in over a decade. (He’s a decent neighbor, BTW.)

    There’s another guy who managed to be on two full-time government payrolls at the same time, bringing in maybe 11 or 12 grand a month gross, and could occasionally be heard disparaging people who just don’t want to work. (Political machination is how he did it.)

    “Leeches” or “parasites” or similar words are what I’ve heard for decades from some government workers to describe the taxpayers who’ve funded their salaries and pensions, which give them a level of comfort and security they simply don’t understand.

    might is right and no homeland should be respected

    Right. Funny you should bring this up.

    Until WW I, 1914, there was something called “right of conquest” that was considered perfectly legitimate under European international law. No homeland was respected, at least in theory. In practice, taking what locals considered their homeland wasn’t safe. The German seizure of French territory in the Franco-German war was one of the major causes of WW II. Bismark later regarded it as his biggest mistake. However, under international law at the time, conquest was a perfectly legitimate way for a Westphalian State to acquire territory.

    Then came WW I and WW II and, like the Treaty of Westphalia, international law was changed (apparently in an informal way) to make right of conquest no longer legitimate. The UN Charter made “aggression” a war crime, at least formally so. One can see that this crime has been prosecuted selectively.

    Now, the funny thing is that, while the idea of the Westphalian State worked out (about 1.5 centuries years of no European war), that of the UN State (no conquest, no aggression) has not. The West is quietly going extinct, and the COVID-19 / disorganization of the US that we are now witnessing may just be the terminal event (in that both sides appear about to start arresting each other). Or, perhaps, the West will reorganize itself, as it has several times in the past. Whatever the present outcome, the UN State has failed in the physical world, and will no longer be with us, except perhaps in universes of discourse — one can always talk about things.

    America was a blood and soil nation, but we made the mistake of letting hordes of Irish, Germans, papists and other scum into our lands. They were quickly followed by the debris of Eastern European ghettos. Most Americans don’t have any Indian or Negro blood. The immigrants who came later might be different.

    Teamsters in Chicago are doing the same thing. The average age of a white teamster around here is probably mid 50’s. I’m 44 and I’m probably the 5th youngest guy in my shop out of 30 guys. Negroes and mestizos are much younger on average. The negroes tear more equipment up than an actual wrecking crew. The mestizos do less so, but still mostly don’t give a shit about anything.

    There was a time, around the same time I might read Naked Capitalism, that I might read a tedious blog by presumably full-time academics called Crooked Timber. I saw first hand in New England / Cambridge in particular but not only the full flowering of hypocrisy in the hipster academic frantically virtue signalling — more and more often full throttle psychopaths — high functioning — really in their element. For awhile I was kind of in awe of their adaptivity, but the more holistic perspective has their doomed trajectory more well plotted.

    RC, I think I replied to you before we ought to broaden and deepen the debate about UBI. I’m thinking of it as a way of maintaining basic human decency, and also a way of consolidating the welter of transfer payment programs with their own bureaucracies. Guy Standing’s energetic talk about the “precariat” impressed me, but a lot of talk about UBI hasn’t moved me much. I’m willing to listen.

    A contemporary Jew whose name didn’t register honestly and insightfully said “Jews are known for two things: extracting money and subverting.” That’s exactly what you said with accurate detailing in your first two paragraphs here.

    Then what you said about how to deal with the “weed” parallels what Ezra Pound said about why Constantinople withstood the Jews for so many centuries – by prohibiting them from finance as well as barring them from their typical brainwashing activities in media, academia, etc.

    Justinian “justice” was to not let the Jew become a parasite on his empire. Note also that for Russia to return to a symphony of Church and State, she will have to adhere to Byzantium’s Justinian law.

    Iran limits the Jew to professions where said Jew can do no harm. Maybe that is a clue why Zion wants to wreck both Iran and Shia Islam?

    From a monetary perspective, a sovereign can easily issue a bill (like a Mefo-Bill). Said Bill is purchasing power that funds jew removal. The bill specifies that purchasing power is in the form of goods produced from issuing country. Maybe a percentage of the bill can be converted to local currency of the new host country. I nominate Israel as new host country… it already exists, so let’s use it as the original Zionists intended. The bill stimulates production from issuing country and said production comes from future labor.

    The future cannot be improved unless money power is returned to the Sovereign, where it rightly belongs. Jew removal … or majority Jew removal is a goal, and it can be easily done without war, or causing any butt-hurts.

    I would like to see both Justinian law, and a bill system. Either event is a law change. People, since they are brainwashed with false narrative, do not see future possibilities and are constrained by what they think they know.

    It’s kind of understandable, I mean it’s hard to accept that you’ve been duped by a tiny minority into genociding yourselves, and that your children will be a hated minority.

    This is the result of media brainwashing. Campaigns about “tolerance” are not about tolerance but are meant to discourage discussion on open borders immigration and the resulting changing demographics. The same applies to the talk track always celebrating “we’re a nation of immigrants”. Therefore all immigration must be accepted or otherwise you’re anti-American. Complete rubbish.

    I had this conversation with a friend a few years ago, she’s very liberal and atheist. She felt the conversation itself was racist. Meanwhile her lesbian friend is white like she and they live in the whitest of areas. She says that’s just a coincidence. So I said what if America become 99% something other than white (Chinese, Indian, etc..). She agreed it would be an issue. Bottom line is, because it’s gradual, it’s accepted by the sleeping.

    The problem ultimately is that almost all media is controlled by those pushing the agenda. Why is there no Christian owned media? Because the money changers control the Central Banks and thus own everything. The average person unfortunately reacts to whatever the media presents on a daily basis and can’t even contemplate this conspiracy. Our only outlet in online, which is also owned by them (largely) and censorship is happening everyday to prevent conversations like these.

    So profoundly true, yet so pathetically unrealizable. First, who is going to take their money away? So many tried over the millenia, yet all of them failed miserably, and are now vilified as public enemy – Jesus, Robert E. Lee and Koresh topping of the list. Where did they go wrong? They used the only weapons they knew: common sense, and preaching ad vomitum.

    To win the war, because that is the ultimate goal, try their own weapons for a fit. Practice a little how to draw misery, hate, despair, with a smile, so that you remain blameless. Study the rules of ju-jitsu, how to direct the opponent’s energy expenditure to your advantage. Let them loose, with as much rope as they might demand. Your guns, the 2nd amendment, the Constitution, the Fathers, are here only to keep you distracted on the losing position, dwell on the past mistakes, until you bleed dry, voluntarily.

    You will end up more conniving, more corrupting, more duplicitous, more deceitful, then they can ever be, because you did not grow into it, you trained for it.

  92. This is why business supports affirmative action. They know whites will resent the illiterate blacks who get hired instead of much more qualified whites. Companies want their workers to hate each other so they won’t unionize.

  93. Immigration is just a huge scabbing operation in the service of capital, orchestrated and funded by capital and executed by financiers such as Soros et al, and run by political lobbyists he and other capitalists bribe and the NGO drones they pay. They don’t just bus in the scabs from neighbouring counties any more to ride through showers of stones and be greeted club in hand with cops keeping the raging workers at bay but by planes, convoys and every available means with no resistance by the locals but are instead greeted by them on instruction of the welcoming committees funded of course by the same capitalist scum and filth.

    The Jews didi not invent that process. All Empires with more than 3 or so ethnic groups play that game. The catch is that in the WASP world, Jews will always be elite players, insider players, because Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy, and Anglo-Saxon Puritanism has defined Modern English culture at least since it won the Civil War. As astute opponents of Anglo-Saxon Puritanism knew even early in English’s top down Protestant reformation, Puritanism is a permanent revolutionary force that will exist even when the facade of Christian belief is long past.

    Judaizing heresy guarantees Judaizing culture. Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell made the deal with Jewish bankers. The last chance that the British Isles had to be saved from rule by WASP monsters who hate the vast majority of the natives of the British Isles was the reign of James II/VII. The rebellion against him was one of bankers and international traders. And they were then old hands at using the movements of people they had destroyed to economically cripple and hinder people they feared might get too uppity for them.

    That is the English way, the WASP way, as much as it is the Jewish way. Hence, Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    This is a spiritual war. Anything that is not part of acting to rebuild Christendom is either w waste of time and energy or else directly serves the cause of making whites serfs under Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    It is not my theory. I have seen it done at one hospitals and mentioned at others. However, I doubt if anyone would study how business try to discourage professionals from unionizing by tolerating blue collar unions. Of course, the other way to deal with unionied housekeeping, food service, or maintenance is to outsource the work to a third party such as Sodexo. That why not only are the blue collar jobs unionized but that they are a separate company.

    I am surprise that no one has pointed out is that credentialism and special skills has also killed unions. Unions do best when a large number of employees are doing the same job and that job is rule based.

    Both you and Mustapha haven’t a clue about employment or pensions.

    Of course he “paid a dime” into his pension. It’s part of total compensation. Total compensation is what employers use to calculate their employment costs. His pension is part of that compensation. Pensions are deferred wages. Virtually every “construction” trade local has it’s own pension plan for members. The employer contributes on a cents/dollar per hour worked. The carpenter/plumber/electrician never sees that money, it goes directly to the pension plan and is documented to his credit for pension calculation. The carpenter/plumber/electrician didn’t “pay a dime” for his pension either. What’s your point?

    As for disability plans, some pension plans have disability benefits, but most are through private insurance companies. To qualify for disability benefits, the applicant submits a massive amount of paperwork, of which there is detailed medical reports describing the diagnosis, course of treatment, prognosis for recovery, and most importantly, why the physician believes the applicant is unable, due to his medical condition, to perform the majority or core functions of his job. Private insurers along with pension plans with disabilities request regular re-assessments from the applicant’s physician, or ask for an independent medical examination, to justify the continuation of benefits. They aren’t in the business of charity.

    Just because the guy you see looks okay, it doesn’t mean he is. There are dozens of diseases that are invisible, whether physical or psychological. Tell me how his losing disability insurance, something that was either part of his employment compensation or purchased by himself, improves your life.
    People like you and Mustapha are the problem, not the solution.
