Sorry about the website problems. But it looks like we are now back to where we were 13 hours ago, so it’s fine to leave comments now.

Did you miss us while we were gone?

  1. It was puzzling. I’ve other sites where my Brave browser (and not fixed by switching to MS Edge) can’t see the comment system (Disqus) so I was wondering if it was my end.

  2. Well, you never know when the “outage” might be terminal

  3. Trump is spamming paper surveys to his known supporters; at the end of the survey is the money form. I wrote “I was gonna donate but there was this H1-B guy …”

    He should ask the rich people who got a huge tax cut, in addition to the dual-earner parents with two above-firing, absenteeism-friendly jobs per household. They have two jobs with benefits and two income streams to cover rent that has gone up by 72% in the last 25 years. They can afford to donate to the fund since Trump gave them one more sex-and-reproduction reward from government—one more non-refundable child tax credit uphike—to use on one more excused vacation from work for busy-working / busy-vacationing families.

    Trump should also ask the 3.2 million million legal immigrants admitted during his two years in office for a donation. They came in record numbers to take a large chunk of the jobs he brags about creating, with many of them getting the non-refundable child tax credit cash for any US-born kids. They can’t vote for him, but they can express their thanks for the jobs with a donation.

    He should not ask the 95 million US citizens—16 to 65–who are still out of the labor force in this great economy, nor half of all employed persons in the USA who are just employed part time. Well, many of them are married and single mommas with libertine work schedules in discrîminatory voted-best-for-moms jobs. The married moms in the low-wage office jobs are often adding keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ income to a big spousal income, and for all of their hard, part-time work, they got a womb-production tax-refund upgrade.

    They can spare some of it, as can the single mommas, working hard part time to stay under the earned-income limits for multiple welfare programs that Trump supports since it keeps wages down for all of the many single, childless, welfare-ineligible citizens who need for one earned-only income to cover all household bills without any tax-time cash infusions from government to reward them for womb-productive sex. Single moms could chip in some of their up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash to the Trump fund. After all, it is extra cash added to their electricity assistance, reduced-cost rent, free EBT groceries and monthly cash assistance.

    The illegal aliens, too, should contribute to Trump’s fund since he really hasn’t done anything to stop their illegal flow into the USA, and their welfare consumption has only dropped by 10%. This includes womb-productive caravaners, realeased into the US interior to await asylum hearings that most will never show up for. They have more access to thousands in welfare dollars and tax time pay for womb-productive sex than most non-womb-productive US citizens ever will, regardless of how low their earned income is. Illegal aliens can spare a dime for the Trump fund, even if they cannot show their gratitude by voting for him, legally anyway.

    I hate to be brutal about it, but black hair looks a little like hair from the nether regions. Do I really have to go into further detail as to why strangers might be averse to running their fingers through that unless they feel they are duty-bound to do so, i.e. for security reasons?

    Here’s a fascinating Michael Lewis interview I found on YouTube –

    At about 20 minutes in Lewis starts talking about “Russians” in the US who know how to game the system. This is pre-2016 so there are no Trump connotations. It’s really quite interesting he goes there. And then he goes on to talk about the lack of noblesse oblige!

  50. Just listened to a podcast about a banker in 95% Hispanic Laredo TX. Sounds like as we get more migrants from a corrupt, cash-centric, black-market economy we have a fun future with reams more bank paperwork ahead of us. https://bankingjournal.aba.com/2019/04/podcast-challenges-banking-us-mexico-border/

  51. So, Mr. Sailer, continued radio silence on the various ongoing investigations into Trump, including the contents of the Mueller Report? Still being cagey?

    Remember, you are the one who notoriously NOTICES how the NYT and WAPO buries ledes, mismanages stories, and/or ignores important issues of our time. Looks like you are no different than the mainstream media. Of course, you could always try to redeem yourself.

    Anyways, according to un-redacted parts of the Mueller report, there are several important things to consider.

    The Special Counsel’s Office exercised its judgment regarding what to investigate and did not, for instance, investigate every public report of a contact between the Trump Campaign and Russian-affiliated individuals and entities.

    In August 2017, Rosenstein *explicitly* authorized Mueller to investigate criminal charges on the subject of whether Page, Manafort, or Papadopoulos were “colluding” (the exact term used!) with the Russians.

    Mueller’s summary of the Report’s content does NOT say he looked at conspiracy with anyone BUT Russian government officials. That means that Barr probably has misrepresented the Report in saying that it looked at conspiracy with *all* Russian nationals.

    The report also explicitly says that “did not establish” does NOT mean “there was no evidence”. So pundits will quite rightly distinguish between “did not establish [beyond a reasonable doubt]” and “no evidence” of conspiracy (or “coordination,” which Mueller apparently defined identically as “conspiracy”).

    Moreover, Barr’s use of “collusion” AT MOST referred to “Scenario 1 [of 4]”—collusion by criminal conspiracy. His *political trick* was to pretend he was referring to all four types, which the report clearly outlines.

    (1) Collusion by conspiracy (a crime)*
    (2) Collusion by other crimes (a crime)*
    (3) Noncriminal collusion (a national security threat)*
    (4) Noncriminal collusion (an ethical offense)

    So it appears that Mueller anticipated the Trump-Barr line of political rhetoric and fully defuses it in the first two pages of his Report.

    He should ask the rich people who got a huge tax cut, in addition to the dual-earner parents with two above-firing, absenteeism-friendly jobs per household. They have two jobs with benefits and two income streams to cover rent that has gone up by 72% in the last 25 years. They can afford to donate to the fund since Trump gave them one more sex-and-reproduction reward from government—one more non-refundable child tax credit uphike—to use on one more excused vacation from work for busy-working / busy-vacationing families.

    Trump should also ask the 3.2 million million legal immigrants admitted during his two years in office for a donation. They came in record numbers to take a large chunk of the jobs he brags about creating, with many of them getting the non-refundable child tax credit cash for any US-born kids. They can’t vote for him, but they can express their thanks for the jobs with a donation.

    He should not ask the 95 million US citizens—16 to 65–who are still out of the labor force in this great economy, nor half of all employed persons in the USA who are just employed part time. Well, many of them are married and single mommas with libertine work schedules in discrîminatory voted-best-for-moms jobs. The married moms in the low-wage office jobs are often adding keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ income to a big spousal income, and for all of their hard, part-time work, they got a womb-production tax-refund upgrade.

    They can spare some of it, as can the single mommas, working hard part time to stay under the earned-income limits for multiple welfare programs that Trump supports since it keeps wages down for all of the many single, childless, welfare-ineligible citizens who need for one earned-only income to cover all household bills without any tax-time cash infusions from government to reward them for womb-productive sex. Single moms could chip in some of their up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash to the Trump fund. After all, it is extra cash added to their electricity assistance, reduced-cost rent, free EBT groceries and monthly cash assistance.

    The illegal aliens, too, should contribute to Trump’s fund since he really hasn’t done anything to stop their illegal flow into the USA, and their welfare consumption has only dropped by 10%. This includes womb-productive caravaners, realeased into the US interior to await asylum hearings that most will never show up for. They have more access to thousands in welfare dollars and tax time pay for womb-productive sex than most non-womb-productive US citizens ever will, regardless of how low their earned income is. Illegal aliens can spare a dime for the Trump fund, even if they cannot show their gratitude by voting for him, legally anyway.

    - Or: The Windmills of Our Times – Don Quichotte refurbished – – by Steve Sailer, Esq. – or some such – see – whenever I have time to breathe, I tend to fantasize… – Welcome back, anyway!

    What books, what were their titles?

    As I said - i - fantasize about the title of a book by Steve Sailer. He said after the Trump win, he'd be thinking about writing one and looking for a title. I proposed then to play around with the famous basket of deplorables accusation by Hilary Clinton. Now I added the humanists Erasmus of Rotterdam's satire Ship of Fools as just another possibility to play with while looking for a title of Steve Sailer's new book. Such a book I would just love to read - and praise and make known, etc. Wouldn't mind if it was a best of - of his Taki's Magazine articles and - maybe a few of his Blog posts - 100 might do fine. - Unless he's given up this book-idea, which might be the case, but we don't know. Lately he mused about the fact, why he does not hit it big time when posting on twitter - this might be true for the book too. But you never know. Thilo Sarrazin's first book was expected to sell 10 - to 20 ooo copies - if that many! And now he's the most successful politics writer on politics in Germany - - by a large margin. And Steve Sailer is funnier than Sarrazin. Ok - Sarrazin knows more about the Islam, the personal dynamics of politics (he learnt about them in practise) and the economy (here he is theoretically skilled and practically experienced).

    But nonetheless: There's lots of stuff, Steve Sailer has very interesting and at times even otherwise unheard of insights to offer, not least in politics.

    OK if I answer your question with a question?

    Did I miss my favorite website, the one I most often recommend to others?

    "So, Mr. Sailer, continued radio silence on the various ongoing investigations into Trump, including the contents of the Mueller Report? Still being cagey?"

    Stop posting this buffon's comments. Seriously Sailer. Do some moderation at a whim here.

    “‘Stop posting this buffon’s comments. Seriously Sailer. Do some moderation at a whim here.”

    It’s called free speech, SJW.

    OT: Hold on tight for another round of 'everyone wants to touch my hair:'

    https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-tsa-airports-security-black-women-hair-scanners-20190417-prb75sjjs5h75c2yqiqmflfa2y-story.html

    Washington, D.C., resident Dorian Wanzer told ProPublica that she most recently had her hair patted down by airport officials two weeks ago and that it happens all the time when she travels.

    “At this point in my life I have come to expect it, but that doesn’t make it any less invasive and frustrating,” Wanzer, who’s African-American, said. "When you find yourself in that kind of situation, it makes you wonder... is this for security, or am I being profiled for my race?”
     
    The piece does not describe Ms Wanzer's 'hair.'

    I hate to be brutal about it, but black hair looks a little like hair from the nether regions. Do I really have to go into further detail as to why strangers might be averse to running their fingers through that unless they feel they are duty-bound to do so, i.e. for security reasons?
