With Angela Davis having endorsed Joe Biden, I want to point out that none of Joe’s other Women of Color VP possibilities, such as Kamala Harris and Stacy Abrams, have experience running for VP. But Angela does, having garnered 44,933 votes as Gus Hall’s running mate on the Communist Party USA ticket in 1980:

Now, some might consider Dr. Davis’s lived experience to be edgy, perhaps even controversial. But let me point out that she hasn’t engaged in Felony Murder of a judge in almost a half century.

Sure, the shotgun she bought days before happened to be involved in the transpiration of gun violence on August 7, 1970 in which the judge’s head was blown off, but we need to look first at the inadequate gun control laws that allowed a philosophy professor to buy the three guns used in the kidnapping of a judge out of his courtroom.

Anyway, she’s black (sort of), so what would you have done: call the cops on her?

From the NYT article on the death of her lawyer Leo Branton:

Ms. Davis, a 28-year-old former instructor at the University of California, Los Angeles, was accused of murder, kidnapping and conspiracy in the 1970 death of a state judge who was shot with one of several weapons she had bought.

Female philosophy instructors are notoriously into gun collecting as a hobby.

The year before, Ms. Davis had lost her teaching job after she expressed support for the Communist Party. After the charges were filed, she became a fugitive, one of the F.B.I.’s 10 most wanted. She said the weapons had been stolen from her.

By her boyfriend’s brother (pictured above), evidently.

Her flight had been an important part of the prosecution’s case. But Mr. Branton, who had argued numerous cases of police abuse in the 1950s, urged jurors to view her behavior in the context of centuries of slavery, racism and abuse against blacks.

At one point he showed jurors a drawing of Ms. Davis bound in chains. Then he removed the drawing to reveal another showing her freed.

“Pull away these chains,” he said, “as I have pulled away that piece of paper.“

Some jurors cried, and after she was acquitted, so did Ms. Davis. She also hugged the jurors.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

“Angela Davis Found Not Guilty by White Jury on All Charges,” said a headline in The New York Times on June 5, 1972.

Decades later, Mr. Branton said the case stood out to him not just because of the verdict or the distinctiveness of his final appeal, but also because of the defense’s preparations. During jury selection, defense lawyers hired psychologists to help them determine who in the jury pool might favor their arguments, an uncommon practice at the time, he said.

It would amusing to read Counselor Branton’s notes on what kind of Silicon Valley white chumps he was looking for.

That reminds me. We live in a world where Angela Davis gets paid $12,000 to give a speech at Texas Tech, of all places, and I, shall we say, don’t.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute to me, iSteve:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me:

Screenshot 2017-12-23 15.25.23

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: [Warning: Does this still work?] You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

If Coinbase isn’t working, what other Bitcoin intermediaries would you recommend? My goal is to not get audited by the IRS. The SPLC has been out to get me via the IRS for about 15 years, so I am fastidious about paying my taxes. For several years, Coinbase instantly transformed any Bitcoin donations into cash so I didn’t have to worry about the cost basis of capital gains on Bitcoin, but instead just reported income.

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

  1. No details, but I was in the jury pool of a case in which a black man had committed a heinous crime against his (black) family.

    The jury that resulted was 100% white, 50/50 male female, college edumacated, what we would now call SJWs. We used to call them yuppies.

    Defendant had two black lawyers who chose these guys.

    They were brutal as excluding black women.

    Wonder why.

    “with experience of running for veep”

    Is this the least meaningful qualification possible? If the campaign manager lacked experience it might be worrying; if the vice presidential candidate lacked experience serving in office or exposure (to eliminate the possibility of public disgust) it might be worrying. Lack of experience running might be worrying. Experience running specifically for vice president is not something a lot of people can come by, through no fault of their own, and I am not persuaded that it confers anything special.

    Notice an unnoticed cleft in the GOP heartland in those maps?

    In 29 states, the worst-performing candidate was either McGovern or Carter (presumably 1980). But the difference between the pro-military South (McGovern) and isolationist Rockies (Carter) really stands out.

    Democrats who praise Obama for killing Osama neglect to follow through. He was the only reason for our being in Afghanistan in the first place. So this should be chalked up as an Obama failure, because that was his cue to leave.

    As with Nixon, Trump’s failure is dragging his feet on the exit-stage-right.

    Gloria Steinem was also a snitch for the CIA. It’s a long time human tradition for Machiavellian members of a group to snitch on rivals both real and imaginary to the authorities. You provide them valuable information, they’ll tip you off on not going to that political meeting this Tuesday that’s a scheduled police raid.

    Much later, in her book, she acknowledged it saying, “In my experience [the CIA] was completely different from its image; it was liberal, nonviolent and honorable.” In fact, her visit to India is also said to be a stint given to her by the CIA. A report claims that she spent “two years in India spying for the CIA” and received a Chester Bowles Student Fellowship to cover her expenses to “study” in India.

    Humans respond to dominance displays and that’s black. Only White men who know they will get it don’t want more black.

    Definitely tragic dirt. There can’t be any other explanation!

    That’s why this weekend a large group of community and faith leaders plan to gather in that area to announce five initiatives that residents, grassroots groups, police and clergy can do to slow the record-breaking violence numbers.

    I wonder if any of their 5 initiatives will be in any way different from the initiatives of the past 55 years?

    Harrison wouldn’t detail specifics, but 26 proposals will also be sent to the mayor’s office.

    Why so shy? Just print them out and tape them to the door of city hall, so everyone can see!

    “Right now it’s out of control so how do we get some control of the violence again and involve the community. We’ve got to get everyone involved so you’re going to hear all hands on deck,” said Harrison.

    Some of the community is already involved in a certain way…that’s what “snitches get stitches” means! Community involvement!

    Angela Davis’s brother, Ben Davis, played DB for the Cleveland Browns in the late 60’s, early 70’s. I was a fan of his growing up. He’s been a card carrying Capitalist since his playing days ended despite the fact that he attended Defiance (get it, defiance) College. Or maybe because he went to Defiance. Or maybe because of his sister. Or maybe because he succeeded once in a competitive field and liked the action.

    The author, Chris Rickert, is progressive-leaning, but also tries to consider the opposing viewpoint. So I’m heartened that he’s opening the door a crack for his liberal readers so they can process the truth of this when it comes out.

    I would’ve thought Tommy Chong’s federal prison time for selling bongs on the Internet would’ve straighten him out. He should’ve become a highly moral man of strong character.

    Great troll if they go with that because it sounds exactly like an Indian’s name. They get to keep a subliminal redskinish association but put up a wolf logo and still play innocent. Kind of a dog-whistle, or in this case, a wolf-whistle.

    “In my experience [the CIA] was completely different from its image; it was liberal, nonviolent and honorable.”

    I’d tend to think Gloria Steinem was right about the CIA being ‘liberal’, being an organization very much a part of the so called ‘progressive’ establishment.

    Sure, within the progressive milieau, it’s got it’s ‘right’ (Bush Sr, Romney, McCain) types, and ‘left’ (Steinem, Clinton, Biden sorts), but, safe to say, the bulk of it’s employees are wholly on board with the overall liberal/progressive program.

    One get’s hints of the ‘liberal’ aspect of the CIA when doing reading on the Kennedy assassination.

    Ruth Paine, who took in the Oswald’s, and whose sister appears to have been an employee of the agency (and presuming the sister was not too much different in outlook) was very much of the progressive left.

    According to his own words linked below, George de Mohrenschildt, the petroleum engineer who ‘befriended’ the Oswald’s, and seems at minimum to have been (like Steinem) a ‘part timer’ with the CIA, was (albeit barely) of the progressive right.

    Hey, but she signed The Letter. I didn’t, and probably no one else here did either. The NYT is an incredibly toxic environment for thinking people. That she couldn’t adapt shows that she is on the side of sanity.

    Pistols nowadays almost all use a magazine release behind the trigger that can be released with the right thumb. Excellent for shooting competition where it facilitates a fast reload, but under stress it can be easy to accidentally hit it and drop your magazine. Very embarrassing as you saw.
    Older designs usually had the release in the heel where you have to use your left hand bringing up the new magazine to drop the old one. This incident makes me think that the fraction of a second gained with the new release may not be such a hot idea. Military rifles designed for use by inexperienced shooters deliberately place the release button where it is difficult to accidentally hit.

    I was the 12th person chosen for a federal trial last year but was then struck by a peremptory challenge from the defense. The case was a subCon accused of defrauding the Feds. They probably figured out that I was gonna give him the chair.

    Black Twitter is convinced she’s a CIA agent, and that’s how she beat the rap. Apparently, she’s been less than reverential about black men, and the only reason a black – or “black” – woman would do that is that white power has paid her.

    Hell, I’m surprised no rival Neocon tried going after David Horowitz for his radical past.

    Horowitz had a lot of interesting insights about the left, having been one of them. However he is, I believe, a fairly doctrinaire Republican. I don’t know that he has deviated much from a lot of neocon orthodoxy.

  80. O/T: Nick Cannon has come out full black fash.

    I had never heard of the guy but apparently he’s a big celebrity. I had heard of America’s Got Talent, which he used to host, and Mariah Carey, his former wife. Both associations make him “big.”

    This is interesting. Everyone knows that Farrakhan and various fascist ideologies are quite popular in certain black precincts but we’ve managed to keep the lid on it.

    Is the lid blowing as we speak?

    Angela’s sister, Fania, got the looks, although both of them have ridiculous “look at me” hair styles.

    Well, she has gotten older. She’s aged naturally at least. She was pretty cute in Commando and had a bubbly, likeable personality (or at least screen persona); sort of a black Julia Louis Dreyfuss.

    No, she’s more of a Cablinasian, or Cape Coloured. She’s got the whole world in her glands.

    Of course Tommy was the offspring of a WWAM coupling which is almost as rare. His mother was Scots-Irish.

    The polls are polling 25% Republicans at most; the rest being (((independents))) and registered dems. The normal people of this country, especially the Republican voters that democrat governors didn’t kill off with COVID, will be voting for Trump and Civilization itself. Mail-in voting will likely not defraud the presidency, no matter how much the democrat party would like it to. Young people don’t vote and without dead people voting, the dems have no chance. If, somehow Satan gets his way and the dems steal the election, then there will be the bloodiest resistance the world has ever seen. It could happen, but I do count on it. Repubs are great controlled opposition; Trump’s sort of a wildcard, but we’ve already seen his cards so far, so likely not. We need someone from the people; (cue antichrist)…

    In a Sept. 6, 2015, email to Breitbart’s McHugh, Miller suggested that they write about Jean Raspail’s, “The Camp of the Saints,” a racist French novel popular among white nationalist and neo-Nazis. The novel is popular within extremist circles because of its dramatized depiction of “white genocide,” also referred to as the “great replacement” conspiracy theory. According to this theory, white people of European descent are being systematically displaced in the Western world.” When Raspail died in June 2020, VDARE author Steve Sailer, who Miller linked to in his emails to McHugh, publicly mourned his loss.
