    As cynical as I am, I still am consistently amazed and saddened by how the vast majority of educated citizens I meet agree with Obama and are more concerned with the welfare of would be Americans than the real thing. Emma’s poem supersedes the constitution. It is closer to being a modem day Zeroeth commandment that takes the place of those old fashioned 10 that are probably cisgendered, racist and misogynist bigotry anyway.

    Okay, Jewish elite rule should be ‘was’. We need a new elite made up of non-whites, especially Muslims.

    Of course, Klein and his ilk push for more Diversity to ensure the continuance of EXISTING elite rule. He acts like he’s for the New to push out the Old, but he wants to replace much of White America with Brown America to ensure the continuance of OLD JEWISH POWER via divide-and-rule of Diversity.

    Klein is for replacing the Old Masses with New Masses in order to ensure the domination of Old Power(which is Jewish and should count as Old Power because Jewish Immigration experience happened over 100 yrs ago).

    If White America is doomed due to immigration pushed by Klein and Co., white people should go the Jeremy Corbyn route. Ally with Color against the Ruling Elite.

    No more “I stand with Israel”. Time for “I stand with West Bank and Gaza”.

  10. The media’s treatment of the optimistic, aspirational MAGA slogan and the general optimism of Trump’s campaign as “dark, dystopic” or “backward-looking” was a clear whiff, and they keep making the same mistake.

    Ezra Klein has an extremely punchable face.

    He’s also probably the epitome of the intellectual issues facing younger Americans, above all the lack of ability to critically think beyond platitudes. I say this as a younger American with a full appreciation of how much the Boomers screwed up the country and screwed us. If you wish to view them for what they are, that Ezra Klein is the walking symbol of Beltway Millennial affluent white liberalism speaks to it.

    Probably also a symbol of Jewish-American intellectual decline, too. Its kind of sad when you think of how steep of a fall it has been, from Los Alamos to Vox. America has made them softer and lazier, like most whites in general. (Just the truth. Doesn’t mean I buy the plutocratic BS on mass immigration.) Asians have taken over there-they put in the work and have the drive that Jews used to have. Hey, nothing lasts forever.

  17. I’ve said for quite some time that we could survive corrupt and incompetent elites, but our real problem seems to be the way that our midwits are so easily manipulated by really bad ideas and affects that confer status. Chesterton wrote in illuminating paradoxes, but our midwits are obsessed with paradoxes for their own sake, believing that knowledge, experience or skill within the ken of an average man is the mark of being unexceptional or common. For the midwit, ideas are fashions that distinguish him from the lower classes. Absurd new ideas no matter how ridiculous must be adopted by the midwit and integrated into his identity for him to maintain his position relative to the lower classes and hold his status anxiety at bay. This is why the words “female penis” can be written one after the other or said with a straight face. Once the midwit adopts the new fashion, there can be no debating it as an idea, because the debate threatens the midwit’s very identity and precarious class position.

    Not that simple. They do, for the most part, prefer the grifters over bad whites and truly think anyone is evil who opposes mass immigration because the foundation of the US being Emma’s poem. Educated whites tend to think diversity will be better. They just won’t admit they want that diversity (of the full vibrant type) for the bad whites, not themselves. The main benefits, besides cheap labor, that the vibrants provide good whites is by the satisfaction that their side will win and the virtue signalling that they get to do by opposing Trump and bad whites.

  22. Trump got elected, because for 50 years the elites have insisted on “improving” America, without ever actually making it better for native born Americans.

    America 2018 pales in comparison to the “America that once was”.

    Dumber, fatter, poorer, less free, more corrupt, and hopelessly divided is not progress.

    Given the amount of decay, and the level of hostility of the ruling class towards the natives- Trump is actually pretty weak medicine. We really need trials.

    Now it’s getting interesting. Barack vs. The Donald. Let’s see how far he gets with “It’s not who we are” this time.

    My favorite approach is to say things like “3.9 percent unemployment. Join the Resistance!” And “Black and Hispanic unemployment lowest in history. Join the Resistance!” And “Everyone’s 401K has added trillions in value. Join the Resistance!” Democrats once valued irony.

    The problem is that people who support Mr. Trump cannot hold a conversation with Democrats because the Dems simply won’t stand still for it.

    I think Jennifer Rubin has an op-ed about how Trump is destroying law enforcement in America. You know, because protecting the border and preventing unlawful migration is, apparently, unlawful somehow. Truly we live in the bizarro-world, in which up is down, male is female, and law enforcement is unlawful.

    The Stanleys were true believers (members) of Communism. And, like the mores of communism, they sacrificed their grandson to “toe the line.” If Barack ever understands how he was actually, used by his white grandparents for their narcissistic views, he may understand and……can’t even…be triggered! :) ! I hope Obama one day, understands how he was used. My family in Europe knows he has been used…it is just sad that he was so duped. So many people in Europe know that he was and continues to be duped and used.

    This is so weak, falls into the category of liberal fogwash. By offering some grand vision of the future, without telling us how many whites are going to be unfairly displaced, or worse (Becky murders), Obama offered nothing. Trump at least offers a return to some sort of meritocracy. That it would be at the expense of less capable people who feel entitled is just a bonus.

  39. Sailer is right, but Obama’s rhetoric about a bright and prosperous future is actually VERY powerful. Hope is a powerful message. Religions are based on hope.

    Obama is actually a slick politician. He’s realized that the current SJW approach of demanding White Devils to submit to the Inevitable Browning of American might be dangerous politically for the Democrats, and is trying to bring back some kind of slippery “proposition nation” to attract moderate white voters.

    It’s nonsense, of course, but it might work. It has worked in the past. Obama won the Rust Belt, Iowa, Ohio and even Indiana and North Carolina in 2008, and among these states he lost only North Carolina and Indiana in 2012. He won over many apolitical or moderate white centrists. Hope is powerful, even if it’s false hope.

    Trump supporters are underestimating the Democrats in the November elections, and I fear that the apathetic attitude of white republicans in mid-term elections combined with low approval ratings for many Republican candidates, and with the weak messages of the GOP, will lead the Dems to win the House by a considerable margin, and maybe even the Senate.

    The GOP is general lacks any sort of identity. Trump’s appeal to the white working class was based on building on the concept of American identity as a nation which preserves itself against globalization, but the Republicans aren’t capitalizing onto that.

    The GOP elite is still controlled by globalists, lobbyists, people who still believe in the idea that Latinos are “naturally conservative”. You might call them “cucks”, but they’re often the ones still calling the shots, so they’re Cucks in Charge. Few Republican candidates are exploiting nativism: Kobach and De Santis spring to mind.

    It’s good that they both managed to win their primaries, but the party isn’t really doing its best to promote them. Kobach will likely win, but with De Santis it’s a toss up, and he’d really benefit of a coordinated GOP strategy to get out the vote.

    The GOP elite is still wishy-washy about the nativist project. Confusion and mixed messages are very bad electorally. According to some polls Ted Cruz is struggling in Texas. Lying Ted has never been incredibly charming or popular, but he should have no trouble carrying Texas, even with the increasing browning of the state. He has no clear message to offer, though, and that’s hurting him.

    It’s becoming increasingly clear that voters ARE going to be divided on issues of identity. The Dems have embraced identity without hesitation, even if they’re trying to be appealing to moderate whites to win. So the GOP should stop trying to be the party which disdains identity and instead openly embrace nativism.

    Very few people care about something as abstract as Randian objectivism or balancing budgets. Preserving your country and your hometown by clamping on illegal immigration is a much more concrete, visible issue. Populist parties are doing very well in Europe. Far too many Americans believe Europeans to be effete socialists, when actually the nativist revolution is going strong in Eastern Europe and extending to Italy and even Germany.

    The mid-term elections are likely going to be a disaster for the Republican Party. Hopefully they’ll be a wake-up call.

    Pretty much the worst thing that can be done for the Palestinian people, if not their leaders, is exactly what Western leftists do: giving them false hope that if they hold out for long enough, their moral pressure will somehow get the Israeli government to agree to right of return/Jerusalem, etc. Why? Because it is literally all they’ve got.

    Other Arab governments either are now aligned with Israel or are castrated due to the last decade or two of political chaos in the region. Russia, India, and China don’t care what the Israelis do in practice as long as order is maintained, and in the case of the first two, are probably somewhat ideologically sympathetic to Likud. And the Persians are far more concerned with keeping their eye on that young Saudi hothead then nuking the Zionist entity, whatever their propaganda says and whatever Bibi gets gullible Dominionist hacks in the GOP to believe. Bottom line: Israel is in a more dominant, secure position than it has ever been. You don’t have to be a hasbara fanboy or fond of the irritating tendency of the GOP to not treat Israel like the foreign nation (and major stealer of US intelligence secrets) that it is to acknowledge this basic reality.

    Take away that hope, and the Palestinians will have no choice but to face reality, accept that right of return ain’t happening no matter what government is in charge in Israel, and sit down. Then, all the global talking heads can start talking about concessions the Israelis might actually be willing give. Then: peace. The dying stops. Likely, life improves for the greatest aggregate number of people. The end.

    That’s what ideally would happen. That’s also what I know won’t happen, not least because the most radical people on both sides of the conflict are reproducing the most, and the nature of left-wing politics in Europe. Instead, the cycle will just continue until… damn it, Donald, stay away from that God-forsaken region if you want to get reelected.

    Steve, this is well put. And you carve up these sleazy dweebs like the intellectual soft butter they are.

    But what we really need is to have TRUMP making this point–strongly, clearly and repeatedly.

    The Democrat/establishment/Jewish/swamp/coalition-of-the-fringes opposition isn’t going to melt away. But if Trump would just get his act together and make these fundamental points about who our elected officials are supposed to represent and whose interest they are supposed to work for, and further hammer home that his opponents not only don’t work in the interests of Americans but do not even see their jobs that way!–heck say the “T-word”, “treason”–this election would be over.

    But Trump can’t win on this basic “for ourselves and our posterity” point, if he doesn’t cut through the b.s. they throw up and make the campaign entirely about this point.

    Not that you care, but that map series isn’t accurate. In the pre 1948 panels it colors all non-Jewish owned land as yellow (actually, the first panel seems to be completely yellow, supposedly “Palestinian” which is not true, since most of the land was unowned or in a sort of Ottoman overlord-ship. The first and second panels should be mostly grey. Then in the third panel it doesn’t show Jerusalem being set aside as the Corpus (it was not made “Palestinian” in the UN Partition plan) but rather colors it yellow. In fact the word “Palestinian” referring to Arabs was not used in the UN partition plan, since it hadn’t been invented yet. And the lies continue with the other panels but I won’t waste keystrokes.

    I’ll grant that there really has been some serious Jewish intellectual decline. And gentile intellectual decline as well.

    But Los Alamos to Vox. Isn’t really a fair comparison. Same time frame as Los Alamos lots of Jews were active members of the Communist Party and traitors like the Rosenbergs. My best Jewish friend from grad school is working at Los Alamos now and his political ideas … tend toward the typical Jewish nonsense.

    As I’ve pointed out several times, most Jewish intellectualism unconstrained by direct physical experiment/reality tends to be garbage.

    Jews–outside marketplace brass tacks–on average seem to tend toward being anti-empirical and prone to “flights of fancy” and utopian dreaming and scheming … and really do shitty ungrounded intellectual work, unless it’s checked by hard “that shit don’t work” constraints like you get in physics.

    Jews doing physics, chemistry, medicine (physical) … lots of good work. Jews doing psychology (or psychiatry), sociology, philosophy, law, politics … a disaster for the West.

    Reality is real–like it or not. If you don’t force yourself to bash your ideas against it … your ideas will be shit.

  52. Just Bobby Kennedy’s “Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.” restated.

    The problem is, is that the Ezra Kleins of the world do indeed spend their intellectual coin “dreaming of things that never were” but they don’t seriously tackle the second half of the equation, which is in determining exactly how and why things are not how they “believe” they “can be”.

    Honestly answering “Why not?” and not just treating it rhetorically, entails real intellectual effort at getting to the ground of things and ascertaining why things are as they are.

    Haven’t his companies lost around a quarter of their value since his election?

    Ivanka and Jared are part of White House staff, so there’s that I guess. I think the highest paid position is $160K in an expensive town. Neither are particularly sharp. Or popular.

    The mandarin, billionaire, media, and academic classes all despise him. I don’t see him landing any cushy sinecures after he leaves office to enjoy his $250K/yr pension the remaining 10 years of his life.

    He’s really always just been a sole proprietor/real estate developer. The serious money is in creative stock deals as shareholder/executive of a public company, but he’s too egotistical and rubs too many people the wrong way to be head of a public company. I’m in that camp that thinks his wealth is overstated, maybe by a lot.

    Does he have any big connections in the energy or defense industries? Or even in highway contractors?

    He pretty much burned his bridges in New York real estate at the 2016 Al Smith charity dinner.

  57. Carly Simon singing that damn Anticipation song is just as annoying as that anti-White mulatto Obama singing the glories of America’s transformation into a Third World shithole.

    Trumpy interfered somewhat in the globalizer’s plans to smash the life out of White Core America by using mass immigration to racially transform the United States.

    Voters in the 2016 GOP presidential primary were waiting for a candidate to halt America’s immigration-induced slide into Third World demographics. Trumpy gave his opening speech to his presidential bid and he attacked illegal immigration and that sent the globalizers into a frenzy of anti-Trump hate. Sad!

    Jebby Bush agreed with Obama that the United States needed to be racially transformed by mass legal immigration and illegal immigration, and the GOP presidential primary voters told Jebby Bush to go to Hell.

  60. Obama believes in foreigners who haven’t gone through the formality of being Americans yet.

    No, Obama and our (((overlords))) believe, or profess to believe, that We Are the World and the only qualification for moving to the United States is to be able to trace your ancestry to the planet Earth. Until we have the first birth in a space station.

    I’m ready to skip to the guillotines. Or just toss them alive on the funeral pyres.

    And I mean all of them- from the progressive thought leaders in government/media down to the last lowliest, blue-haired, screeching sack of cat shit. No forgiveness, no redemption, no pity. Follow that with a Manhattan Project level effort to identify the brain malfunction that leads to progressivism, and learn to catch and mitigate it early.

    And I no longer give a blue fuck how that sounds. Call me fascist or what have you, but what we thought we had before didn’t work. Why try to get back into that? It failed. America that was could not defend itself from even the most obvious and ridiculous internal enemies. It was subverted and gutted by people who wake up every morning confused by their own genitals. You could purge them all and it’ll just happen again and again until Giant Meteor wins an election.

    In America, everything is about Israel. (Least it seems that way sometimes, doesn’t it?)

    In America, in the Republican Party, the politicians talk all day long about Israel and they pander to the whims of Israel so they can get the votes of the evangelicals and the loot of the billionaire Jews.

    A nice smart lady — who I think is even nicer now that I might be taller than her since she likes to go on and on about how great tall people are — noticed during a GOP presidential primary debate that all the candidates were falling all over themselves trying to be the most obliging to the demands of Israel.

    This lady got a bit agitated because she thinks what happens in the United States is more important than what happens in Israel. This lady would like to see an immigration moratorium and she would like to see illegal aliens deported. She also wants a wall on the border between Mexico and the United States.

    “…In fact the word “Palestinian” referring to Arabs was not used in the UN partition plan…”

    Before its colonization by Ashkenaz, i.e. European, Jews, almost all the inhabitants of what now calls itself Israel — Christians, Muslims, Mizrahim, and others — were not Arabs but basically the same racial and ethnic types as lived to the north in Lebanon. Your use of the term “Arab” to describe these people is far more false, misleading and tendentious than the use of term “Palestinian”.

    The Frankish Kingdom of Jerusalem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Jerusalem lasted nearly three times as long as Israel has to this point.

    Zionism is the strange ideology that it was a good idea to uproot almost all of Europe’s Jews and plant them in a colony 1,000 miles from their homeland, in a place surrounded by peoples, whose original antipathy for Jews has only been increased by the vicious, colonial racism since exhibited by the Jewish invaders. Up into the 1950s, even after the creation of a Zionist state, most Jews were not supportive of this ideology.

    Despite Zionist triumphalism I don’t think Zionism or Israel has a rosy future. Like so many past Jewish enthusiasms, e.g., Simon bar Kokhba https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_bar_Kokhba, it will end in a disaster not just for its adherents but for all Jewry.

    Well said. Trump liked getting rich, but he cares more about the USA than he does about money.

    No private industry does better with mass migration than developers either, as rich foreigners buy condos like candy and Heritage Americans flee diverse chaos further and further out into newly built suburbs.

    A constantly regenerating cheap-labor force also depresses wages, thereby diminishing inflation. Fotunes, even modest ones, remain intact in value. Smart money realizes this, and it’s primary reason for the grand, pompous humanitarian crusade to which immigration policy has decayed.

    The first time I saw the IDF conscripts at the swearing-in ceremony at the Wailing Wall, the thing that surprised me the most was how short the Israeli 18-year old boys were. I’m about 6’2”, and they were all at least a head shorter, some much shorter still. They looked like American 14-year olds.

    “Ezra Klein has an extremely punchable face.”

    Code for “I’ll just make this comment and slink down my hole without actually doing something about it”.

    “I say this as a younger American with a full appreciation of how much the Boomers screwed up the country and screwed us.”

    You would be in the minority (heh) here.

    The fact of the matter is that our nation’s history is based on this cycle:

    Newcomers arrive
    Newcomers are unwelcome
    Newcomers assimilate
    New newcomers arrive
    Old newcomers are unwelcome toward new newcomers
    Ad infinitum

    As a result, this Americans first vs. the next American is a simply a matter of “Who, Whom”. In other words, it depends on your perspective.
