    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/17/dolly-parton-helped-fund-moderna-covid-19-vaccine-trial-via-vanderbilt.html

    Dolly Parton helped fund the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine that’s being called ‘a game changer’

    On Monday, Moderna announced that its Covid-19 vaccine is more than 94% effective in preventing Covid-19, according to preliminary data. And there’s an unexpected celebrity who helped make it happen: iconic musician Dolly Parton.

    Back in April, Parton donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s efforts to combat Covid-19, which included Moderna’s vaccine trial and clinical research. In the footnotes of the New England Journal of Medicine’s announcement about the Moderna vaccine’s results, “the Dolly Parton Covid-19 Research Fund” is credited as one of the supporters.

    -- calling Angela Davis "one of the most impactful US intellectuals" (Ridiculous minority promotion.)

  6. Steve’s comment is not quite adequate. OJ may or may not be a murderer, but Angela Davis is-or at least was- a member of CPUSA.

    It’s like, say, screaming communist at Gorbachev. Well, ….

    I got flamed on a local Madison, WI forum for calling Angela Davis a communist. Someone said I was obviously too stupid to know the difference between a socialist and a communist. I pointed out that Davis had been on of the leaders of the CPUSA. So someone couldn’t tell the difference, that’s for sure.

  8. Where or what is Du Bois?

    Anyway about 10 years ago she came to my old college in Alabama to give a speech on MLK day…..i think the trip was partially taxpayer financed.

    At that event somebody in the crowd yelled at her to explain the concentration camps in the DPRK….she just replied something about him being rude & dodged the question while she talked about communism…..again…..partially taxpayer financed…..

  9. What is an “intellectual” anyway? I understand scientist, scholar, expert (in a field). I recognize great artists and athletes, though admittedly the criteria are more subjective there. Great Thinkers might be a category (Socrates) though you can’t really join that club until you’ve been dead a century or two.
    Chomsky was called an intellectual not because of his work in linguistics but because of his opinions outside his field, in politics and general philosophizing. I guess you become an intellectual when you make smart (even if wrong) social commentary. With Angela Davis and the Woke generation the commentary no longer has to be smart.

  13. I live and work amongst many African American people. During Simpson’s trial, we were all tuned in on our, state of the art, Walkman’s. I got to hear reactions from my, Black, female co-workers, and my white, liberal, co-workers. The Blacks knew that he was guilty and wanted him to get off anyway. They blamed Nicole, though she was only 16 when O.J. hooked up/groomed her. The white liberals were sure that he was innocent and had been framed by the racist LAPD.

  14. Your tweet to Stanley about Judge Haley is one of your best Steve. Thank you.

  15. Also amidst famous / notorious connections … 3 of Adolf Hitler’s surviving grand-newphews, live on Long Island, New York

    The 3 in the USA descend from Adolf’s half-brother Alois Hitler Jr (1882-1956), who married Irish Bridget Dowling (1891-1969), fathering UK-born William Patrick Hitler (1911-87) before their marriage broke up. Willy Hitler – later ‘William Stuart-Houston’ – moved to the USA and served in the US Navy during World War II. His sons, Brian, Louis, and Alexander, grand-nephews of Adolf Hitler, live on Long Island. 2 in Austria descend from Adolf Hitler’s half-sister Angela (1883-1949), Peter Raubal and Heiner Hochegger. All the grand-nephews are childless.

    Also from the article quoted above, Adolf very possibly has living direct grand-children & further descendants, from an affair German Army Corporal Hitler had with French farm girl Charlotte Lobjoie in 1917, whom Adolf also painted on canvas; their son Jean-Marie, born in 1918, took the name Loret from Charlotte’s eventual husband. Himmler found Charlotte in Paris during the war, and German officers brought her funds during the occupation. More photos at the link just given, but here is Adolf Hitler’s likely grandson, born in 1956, Frenchman Philippe Loret – good resemblance, notice the chins:

  25. Abolish PERS.

    It’s cringeworthy to hear Republicans call out Democrats for being socialists.

    Republicans support 98.8% of the DEM agenda. That’s right.

    At the state level, when it comes to that quintessential communist policy of spending on schools, Republicans often outdo Democrats.

    In fairness, sometimes the Republicans will favor abolishing some commission that hasn’t met in years. For example, one set up long ago to study the effects of changing over to the Metric system.

  26. We all know that murders by Communists don’t count. And all murders by POC don’t count except under exceptional circumstances (maybe) that I can’t think of right now.

    This shows that Jews like Reich have zero attachment to the American land. He doesn't feel at home here, doesn't have roots here and doesn't want any. So he can be dismissive of Gentiles who do belong here.
    He wouldn't tell Mexicans that they are land thieves and don't belong in Mexico. He wouldn't say this to Cubans in Cuba or Greeks in Greece. And as we are all aware he won't say this to Jews in Palestine who are much more recent arrivals to that land.

What has been the foundational principle of Israel from the beginning suddenly turns into a pathology when other races get in on the act.

    That's partly because communism is no longer a threat. It no longer exists in any meaningful sense. Of course people are not afraid of communism any more. North Korea is pretty much the only communist country left. I don't see much chance of North Korea making a bid for global hegemony.

    “Jonathan Peter Jackson (June 23, 1953 – August 7, 1970) was an American revolutionary activist who died of gunshot wounds suffered during his armed invasion of a California courthouse.”

    Get the narrative? He’s “an American revolutionary activist” who “suffered” gunshot wounds.

    He was a murderer, so were his accomplices, and their apologists aren’t much better.

Ideas he thinks wrong, values he thinks wrong, need to be banned. Completely unaware of his own narrow bigotry – hasn’t a clue. If born in Russia in 1910 would have become a youth leader in the anti-kulak death squads.

    True. AndrewR made a similar point about Bolsonaro, that he's leader of a multiracial country and therefore not a race nationalist. But both he and Duterte want to preserve their countries as they are and resist the assault on ethnic pride, traditional sexual roles, etc. that's in full swing in the US and Western Europe.

  57. Angela Davis twice ran as the Communist Party USA’s candidate for vice president. She often labeled herself as a communist.

    She is arguably an intellectual although she was only “impactful” as a media image. She studied under Herbert Marcuse (J-CIA) who claimed she was “the best student I ever had in the more than 30 years I have been teaching.” She studied in Paris and Frankfurt and eventually received a PhD from an East German university. She spoke French quite well (video below) but I cannot find any evidence she spoke German. I cannot find her doctoral thesis although at one point it was going to be on Kant’s attitude towards violence in the French Revolution. The fact that her thesis is not available is potentially telling about its academic qualities and could put in doubt her status as an intellectual. One positive thing I can say about Marcuse is that he wrote an extraordinarily clear book explaining Hegel.

    Marcuse was in the OSS during WW2 and then supposedly transferred to the “State Department” which many take as deep state talk for the CIA. The Deep State did launch a cultural capitalism crusade against the Soviet block backed by many Jewish intellectuals. Remember that Stalin’s anger at “Zionism in One Country” and his subsequent “rootless cosmopolitan” label turned most Jews against communism. Increasingly Jews were finding economic success in the US and elsewhere and so they led the intellectual crusade of “Libertarianism” (Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand) so that they could keep more of their wealth. Marcuse’s job was to destroy the working class left from within. In direct contradiction to Marx, he stigmatized the working class as part of the Capitalist system. He pushed the left to embrace Lumpenproles and the hedonistic bourgeoisie. The is the same time that “Privilege Theory” arose where ruling class adjacent “leftists” were demanding white workers give themselves a salary cut and give their “unearned” material wealth back to the ruling class. The East Germans use ideology to suppress wages: “real, existing socialism”. Wokeism, feminism, mass immigration are all suppression ideologies used by our current ruling class.

    This is an absurd statement. I personally met three of these four and was good friends with one of them. None were religious or particularly identified as Jewish.

    The idea that "they" led some crusade called libertarianism (which goes back centuries to many thinkers, only a few Jewish) is beyond absurd. Two were refugees (from Communist or Nazis) and none were more than modestly well off.

    The claim that this was all about "keep(ing) more of their wealth" is insane and demented. You will not find any such arguments in anything they wrote. What they did all champion to various degrees was educating the public about the nature of government. The State (and it's many representatives and leaders) is all about stealing from the public under all kinds of pretexts.

    Some libertarians argue that is necessary up to a point. Others believe it is always theft. Regardless they championed freedom and free markets not from selfish financial motives but because of the well documented history of using government coercion to control, kill, imprison, impoverish and brainwash others for the selfish ends of the ruling elites. It was and is not about personal wealth.

    This anti antisemitism expressed here is just another example of how it can poison someone's brain.

  65. OT: There is a good HBO documentary called Kill Chain, about how easy it is to hack voting machines. You can also get it for a couple bucks on YouTube and other services as well.

    Professional “white hat” hackers show very convincingly that it is child’s play to access the obsolete vote-counting computers and manipulate the results. Dominion is singled out as especially, and suspiciously, easy to manipulate.

    The funny thing is that the doc was intended to be pro-Democrat when it was released seven months ago, in March 2020.

    At that time, the Party Line was that hacking was easy, and very dangerous, because evil Russians and Republicans were likely to exploit it. There is even a segment explaining how easy it would be to manipulate the vote in Georgia, and how the election there in 2018 might have been stolen from Stacy Abrams.

    But immediately after the doc came out, covid hit and the narrative flipped 180 degrees. Now election fraud became “impossible” and a crazy “conspiracy theory.”

    So it’s actually a really interesting and informative documentary, in which the lefty producers inadvertently contradict their narrative and help make Trump’s case that he was very likely robbed. (Which I’m increasingly convinced that he was).

    OT: There is a good HBO documentary called Kill Chain, about how easy it is to hack voting machines. You can also get it for a couple bucks on YouTube and other services as well.

    Professional "white hat" hackers show very convincingly that it is child's play to access the obsolete vote-counting computers and manipulate the results. Dominion is singled out as especially, and suspiciously, easy to manipulate.

    The funny thing is that the doc was intended to be pro-Democrat when it was released seven months ago, in March 2020.

    At that time, the Party Line was that hacking was easy, and very dangerous, because evil Russians and Republicans were likely to exploit it. There is even a segment explaining how easy it would be to manipulate the vote in Georgia, and how the election there in 2018 might have been stolen from Stacy Abrams.

    But immediately after the doc came out, covid hit and the narrative flipped 180 degrees. Now election fraud became "impossible" and a crazy "conspiracy theory."

    So it's actually a really interesting and informative documentary, in which the lefty producers inadvertently contradict their narrative and help make Trump's case that he was very likely robbed. (Which I'm increasingly convinced that he was).

There are many thousands of people whose wife, daughter or mother was raped and murdered, who pay State taxes every day via sales tax to house, clothe, feed, entertain and provide medical care for the man who committed the atrocity. They probably don't think in these terms for reasons of emotional health, but it remains true. We've so lost the very concept of "just" so long ago that we should stop using the word.

    It wasn’t rural. Trial held in San Jose, then 4th largest city in the state. Only big city between San Francisco and Los Angeles 2 major universities, Stanford and Santa Clara and 1 other, San Jose state. IBM Hewlett-Packard and NASA and it’s many contractors had been there for decades. Intel was there too and so many new tech startups the area was already known as Silicon Valley. A big auto factory as well.

    It’s economy was absolutely booming TPTB had decided that San Francisco be turned into a restaurant row tourist trap Disneyland. Who wants to be a waiter or hotel clerk? We knew several people engineers that had to move from San Francisco to bear San Jose because their employers moved the operation to San Jose.

    Davis’ defense was simple. She bought the guns because the Jackson kid was only 17 and couldn’t legally buy a gun. It was a different time. No liberal anti gun legal foundations suing manufactures gun shops or anyone who allowed someone to use their gun for a crime. I don’t know if letting someone use a gun you bought and are the legal owner of was even a crime at the time. Think of the guy who gave Kyle Rittenhouse his gun. He was exonerated.

    Santa Clara, the county was very liberal at the time. The most insane radical California Supreme Court justice ever, Rose Marie Byrd was a Santa Clara County public defender.

    The universities probably spread liberalism too
    The San Francisco newspapers blamed the court bailiffs, not the black panthers . I don’t know what the local Mercury News wrote about it.

    It was difficult to convict any black person of any crime in the N California at the time Plus Davis is a woman and it was right before the feminazis. Women were still treated more leniently, both in sentencing and trials. Davis was slim and attractive. Not the big fat ugly aggressive bullying black woman of today. The sentence for murder 1 and 2 in California at the time was 3 1/2 years. 7 years, half time off for good behavior.

    Judges were incredibly lenient and biased towards defendants. Sentence for rape in San Francisco was 3 weeks of mental health counseling in a closed facility till I changed it.

    Had she been convicted of accessory conspiracy whatever, she would probably have been sentenced to 6 months probation.

    Wiki article claims only 4 people were killed. I’m sure it was 11. We all know how historians change things to make black criminals look bad.

    Supposedly Davis was to go with them to the courthouse. She backed out at the last minute. She probably set them up to be blamed if anything went wrong.

    She lived with a communist Quaker couple for high school. The Quakers arranged for her college education The American Friends Service Committee was bad as all the Jewish foundations were. They worked with black panthers weathermen all sorts of radical organizations. Did a lot of recruiting black criminals for the coming revolution. After observing the American Friends radicalism I well understood why James 1 persecuted them.

There are many thousands of people whose wife, daughter or mother was raped and murdered, who pay State taxes every day via sales tax to house, clothe, feed, entertain and provide medical care for the man who committed the atrocity. They probably don’t think in these terms for reasons of emotional health, but it remains true. We’ve so lost the very concept of “just” so long ago that we should stop using the word.

    I agree completely, but nobody gets executed for anything any more. The 4 scum who committed the Knoxville slaughter (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murders_of_Channon_Christian_and_Christopher_Newsom) should have been publicly hanged, drawn, and quartered and the video posted world wide. But instead they are still alive and enjoying 3 hots and a cot courtesy of us taxpayers.

    Back when I was a callow yute, my 80 something grandfather, who had commanded a horse drawn artillery battery in WWI, said "This country doesn't have the guts any more to stand a man up against a wall and shoot him." I was appalled at the time, but he was completely right.

    Brazil has the largest Japanese diaspora in the world. I don’t know this for sure but I imagine Japanese-Brazilians have the lowest crime rate of any ethnic group in Brasil.

    Having lived there for over a year, I can assure you that race is orders of magnitude less important there than in the US. SJWs do exist, and of course the same general racial disparities exist there as here, but Brazilian culture simply does not revolve around race like ours does. Your claim that Bolsonaro is “seen as a pro-white” politician simply would not compute to the vast majority of Brazilians.

    Very impressive. As long as Uncle Sam is too gutless to level the Iranian program with incendiaries and Desert Storm-like air raids, and stands ready to shoot down Israeli aircraft looking to mount a second Osirak-style air attack against Iran, the only way to slow the Iranians down is for Israel to mount operations like this that are extremely risky for the personnel involved, both direct action and support staff.

    This was quite an operation by (we presume) the Israelis, deep in the heart of Iran. A truck bomb created a diversion and then a bunch of assassins (the Iranians say 5 or 6 - discount that by half) jumped out of another car and had a "gunfight" with the scientist's bodyguards.

    https://ifpnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/photo_2020-11-27_19-00-54.jpg

    Lots of blood on the ground. Are those motorcycle tracks? What is are the things on the ground? Bits and pieces of the exploded diversionary truck?

    This guy was the head of Iran's covert atomic weapon program and a member of the Republican Guard - he was their Oppenheimer and Groves in one person. This is a big blow to their program and if I were an Iranian nuclear scientist and I was offered the honor of replacing Fakhrizadeh I might decline.

    The Israelis are not going to wait until it is too late and the Iranians actually have the bomb.

    Very impressive. As long as Uncle Sam is too gutless to level the Iranian program with incendiaries and Desert Storm-like air raids, and stands ready to shoot down Israeli aircraft looking to mount a second Osirak-style air attack against Iran, the only way to slow the Iranians down is for Israel to mount operations like this that are extremely risky for the personnel involved, both direct action and support staff.

    Jewish “open borderism” only applies to your right to enjoy being in a decent community enjoying the freedom and prosperity that your ancestors built.

    It most certainly does not mean that there is no border around their stuff–their home, their jobs, their businesses, their brokerage accounts. In fact, in fact in their world view the paramount duty of the state is not defense of the nation’s territory, but rather to whack any gentiles that ponder taking that stuff away or even just not supporting their comfy sinecures.

    Angela Davis twice ran as the Communist Party USA’s candidate for vice president. She often labeled herself as a communist.

    She is arguably an intellectual although she was only “impactful” as a media image. She studied under Herbert Marcuse (J-CIA) who claimed she was "the best student I ever had in the more than 30 years I have been teaching." She studied in Paris and Frankfurt and eventually received a PhD from an East German university. She spoke French quite well (video below) but I cannot find any evidence she spoke German. I cannot find her doctoral thesis although at one point it was going to be on Kant’s attitude towards violence in the French Revolution. The fact that her thesis is not available is potentially telling about its academic qualities and could put in doubt her status as an intellectual. One positive thing I can say about Marcuse is that he wrote an extraordinarily clear book explaining Hegel.

    Marcuse was in the OSS during WW2 and then supposedly transferred to the “State Department” which many take as deep state talk for the CIA. The Deep State did launch a cultural capitalism crusade against the Soviet block backed by many Jewish intellectuals. Remember that Stalin’s anger at “Zionism in One Country” and his subsequent “rootless cosmopolitan” label turned most Jews against communism. Increasingly Jews were finding economic success in the US and elsewhere and so they led the intellectual crusade of “Libertarianism” (Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand) so that they could keep more of their wealth. Marcuse’s job was to destroy the working class left from within. In direct contradiction to Marx, he stigmatized the working class as part of the Capitalist system. He pushed the left to embrace Lumpenproles and the hedonistic bourgeoisie. The is the same time that “Privilege Theory” arose where ruling class adjacent “leftists” were demanding white workers give themselves a salary cut and give their “unearned” material wealth back to the ruling class. The East Germans use ideology to suppress wages: “real, existing socialism”. Wokeism, feminism, mass immigration are all suppression ideologies used by our current ruling class.

    This is an absurd statement. I personally met three of these four and was good friends with one of them. None were religious or particularly identified as Jewish.

    The idea that “they” led some crusade called libertarianism (which goes back centuries to many thinkers, only a few Jewish) is beyond absurd. Two were refugees (from Communist or Nazis) and none were more than modestly well off.

    The claim that this was all about “keep(ing) more of their wealth” is insane and demented. You will not find any such arguments in anything they wrote. What they did all champion to various degrees was educating the public about the nature of government. The State (and it’s many representatives and leaders) is all about stealing from the public under all kinds of pretexts.

    Some libertarians argue that is necessary up to a point. Others believe it is always theft. Regardless they championed freedom and free markets not from selfish financial motives but because of the well documented history of using government coercion to control, kill, imprison, impoverish and brainwash others for the selfish ends of the ruling elites. It was and is not about personal wealth.

    This anti antisemitism expressed here is just another example of how it can poison someone’s brain.

    2) Speaking of gushing, the media have been absolutely swooning over Vanderbilt letting a girl handle one kickoff. Mizzou never let Vamdy get close enough for a PAT or FG try, but the whole three hours were dedicated to what a "historic" moment this was -- so inspiring for the wimmins everywhere.

    3) North Carolina players had big BLM phrases on their unis, including Equality, Say Their Names, How Many More and I Can't Breathe -- I Can't Tackle would have been more to the point. I did not see Honor, Self-Reliance or the kind of phrases the service academy teams sometimes wear.

    Assuming Rashida Jones is too half-white to count, the one black woman who occasionally caught my eye would be singer/actress Barbara McNair -- although she was all too often the victim of ridiculous 1960s hairdos. She had three or four white husbands, way before it became cool in TV ads!

    McNair was oddly cast as the cynical villainess in the very last episode of Mission Impossible, wooed by Barney as he acted Black to infiltrate her mob -- including Pernell Roberts sporting an absurd hairpiece.

    The reason you can say that Communism is no longer a threat is because it’s been understood to be the seizure of the means of production, and in the U.S. we don’t produce much anymore*. Instead, the Bolsheviks have seized the means of information.

    I really don't understand why, but Davis was acquitted on all charges by a rural, all white jury. Not a hung jury but a total acquittal. Earlier, a white dairy farmer from Fresno had paid her bail. I guess rural people in California are (or were) different than elsewhere in the US.

    https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/books/98/03/08/home/davis-acquit.html

    Replies: @Hibernian, @Alden

    It wasn’t rural. Trial held in San Jose, then 4th largest city in the state. Only big city between San Francisco and Los Angeles 2 major universities, Stanford and Santa Clara and 1 other, San Jose state. IBM Hewlett-Packard and NASA and it’s many contractors had been there for decades. Intel was there too and so many new tech startups the area was already known as Silicon Valley. A big auto factory as well.

    It’s economy was absolutely booming TPTB had decided that San Francisco be turned into a restaurant row tourist trap Disneyland. Who wants to be a waiter or hotel clerk? We knew several people engineers that had to move from San Francisco to bear San Jose because their employers moved the operation to San Jose.

    Davis’ defense was simple. She bought the guns because the Jackson kid was only 17 and couldn’t legally buy a gun. It was a different time. No liberal anti gun legal foundations suing manufactures gun shops or anyone who allowed someone to use their gun for a crime. I don’t know if letting someone use a gun you bought and are the legal owner of was even a crime at the time. Think of the guy who gave Kyle Rittenhouse his gun. He was exonerated.

    Santa Clara, the county was very liberal at the time. The most insane radical California Supreme Court justice ever, Rose Marie Byrd was a Santa Clara County public defender.

    The universities probably spread liberalism too
    The San Francisco newspapers blamed the court bailiffs, not the black panthers . I don’t know what the local Mercury News wrote about it.

    It was difficult to convict any black person of any crime in the N California at the time Plus Davis is a woman and it was right before the feminazis. Women were still treated more leniently, both in sentencing and trials. Davis was slim and attractive. Not the big fat ugly aggressive bullying black woman of today. The sentence for murder 1 and 2 in California at the time was 3 1/2 years. 7 years, half time off for good behavior.

    Judges were incredibly lenient and biased towards defendants. Sentence for rape in San Francisco was 3 weeks of mental health counseling in a closed facility till I changed it.

    Had she been convicted of accessory conspiracy whatever, she would probably have been sentenced to 6 months probation.

    Wiki article claims only 4 people were killed. I’m sure it was 11. We all know how historians change things to make black criminals look bad.

    Supposedly Davis was to go with them to the courthouse. She backed out at the last minute. She probably set them up to be blamed if anything went wrong.

    She lived with a communist Quaker couple for high school. The Quakers arranged for her college education The American Friends Service Committee was bad as all the Jewish foundations were. They worked with black panthers weathermen all sorts of radical organizations. Did a lot of recruiting black criminals for the coming revolution. After observing the American Friends radicalism I well understood why James 1 persecuted them.

    I agree completely, but nobody gets executed for anything any more.

But instead they are still alive and enjoying 3 hots and a cot courtesy of us taxpayers.

    Back when I was a callow yute, my 80 something grandfather, who had commanded a horse drawn artillery battery in WWI, said “This country doesn’t have the guts any more to stand a man up against a wall and shoot him.” I was appalled at the time, but he was completely right.
