Political donations to candidates over a certain low amount ($35?) are public record. From Bloomberg:

The Employees Who Gave Most to Trump and Biden
By Jackie Gu
November 2, 2020

… Of the employers included in this analysis, those whose employees tilted the most to Trump were the New York Police Department and the U.S. Marines, with almost 70% of employees who made contributions to one of the two presidential campaigns favoring the incumbent. The employers with the greatest share of Biden donors were Facebook and the University of Washington [I think they meant U. of Colorado], with over 97% of their donors giving to Biden:

This graph leaves out the vertical scale, but it runs from “over 97%” at the top to “almost 70%” at the bottom: i.e., there is about an order of magnitude more political diversity within the NYPD and US Marines — where more than 30% of employees who donated support Biden — than within Facebook — where about 3% of donors support Trump.

Silicon Valley and the Ivy League are vastly more conformist workplaces than the US Marine Corps.

Evidently, you don’t have to be very brave if you are a Marine or a cop to publicly donate to Biden. What is the worst your coworkers are going to do? Razz you about it?

But if you work for Facebook or Harvard, you have to be courageous and nonconformist to donate to Trump, evidently.

Which Harvard professor donated to Trump?

  21. Political donations to candidates over a certain low amount ($35?) are public record.

    I believe in federal elections it is $200 and in California it is $100.

    In New Jersey it’s over $300 per election before you have to report the donor. Therefore, you can give a total of $600 per year per candidate or PAC anonymously, even if their primary in uncontested. This is why most of the major fundraisers are for $300; it lowers the reporting responsibility tremendously

    That’s why Trump lost. The Marines and NYPD are unimportant organizations filled with people who do not matter. Not in the least.

    In any type of power struggle, it’s important to have the support of the security forces (military and police).

    So I suppose Trump is in good shape.

    With Libert’e/Fraternit’e/Decapit’e back in the news once more I will say that whatever the results tomorrow, at least Trump gave us a voice, at least he put our case out there to the American people for the last 4 years.

    White America, as a majority, is dead meat. Whites will be under 50% of the population.

    The issue is, will Whites as a group keep acting the same way? Will the same “leadership class” we’ve been so miserably stuck with be replaced by more loyal voices going forward, because our people demand it.

    All evidence is that when people feel under threat, they get more groupish. And the other side will keep stepping up political and cultural attacks on Whites.

    At least it would pop the fantasy that some return to Classic America of the 50s or 70s was possible.

    This is of the silliest comments I’ve read in a while.

  53. Guardian – “how media outlets plan to sidestep any Trump ‘victory’ news

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/03/donald-trump-us-election-victory-speech-misinformation

    The president’s reported intention to make a premature – and potentially false – victory speech by the end of Tuesday night, with large numbers of mail-in ballots yet to be counted, has provoked intense journalistic debate. TV channels would be under pressure to air such an event on grounds that it is “news”, while aware that it amounted to dangerous misinformation that could stir violence across the nation and undermine the democratic process.

    Such a clash of responsibilities would amount to a heady climax in the American media’s extremely vexed relationship with Trump over the past four years.

    Were Trump to try to stage such a “victory” stunt it would chime with the relentless doubt that he has sewn for months around the election, with repeated false claims that mail-in voting is riddled with fraud. His comments suggest that his aim is to create the illusion that the election is being stolen from him in states such as Pennsylvania where early results from in-person voting might favor Trump in a so-called “red mirage”, only for the balance to swing to Biden as absentee ballots are counted beyond election day.

    They’re laying out the playbook right in front of us.

    They ALWAYS project.

    The conspiracy is pretty open.

    Suggest that in order to measure how variegated is political opinion in an organization, compare the ratio of the majority opinion to the minority opinion in each. In the Marines, the ratio is 7/3 or 2.33 to 1. At the University of Colorado, the ratio is 97/3 or 32.33 to one. The difference is just shy of 14 to 1, or 1.14 orders of magnitude.

    One of the curios of our time is that the left is chock-a-block with people who are ‘committed’ and insist on importing political struggle into every kind of venue. Workplaces, pasttimes like spectator sports or the Boy Scouts, school yearbooks, you name it. There was even a woman’s crafting site called Ravelry where the known Trump supporters were banned. (They knew who they were because the Trump supporters were already walled off in separate discussion groups. You had these discussion groups because the progenitors of the site and their pets couldn’t keep from yapping about politics while discussing their knitting).

    The thing is, if you talk to street-level Democrats, they generally know little or nothing of policy. Everything they say is a cack-handed defense of something done by one of their icons (e.g. Obamacare or the Iran deal) or it’s some measure designed to injure the opposition in ways large and small, or its some denunciation of a proposal by the opposition that might take 5c away from one of their mascot groups or make it more likely that one of their mascots would be held accountable for something. The left has long been problematic, but it didn’t used to be a massive hate group completely bereft of procedural scruples.

    Y’konw, I have often thought that logically that would be true.

    However, my personal experience does not bear that out. Over the years, I’ve known a number of ex-military people quite well, and had a chance to talk briefly with numerous others. For example, the guy who lives behind us was a military aviator in WW II. He’s a very sweet, gentle fellow; he once told me that he regretted being in the war, but explained that as a young man he was just caught up in the war fever. Shortly after Bush the Second attacked Iraq, I happened to be visiting the local airplane museum here in Sacramento and ran into a couple military guys: they both said that junior officers were telling them that Bush was making a catastrophic mistake; they showed no gung-ho thirst for battle at all. My experience goes back to my maternal grandfather and my dad’s brother, both of whom were in the Navy in WW II.

    Now, of course, my own experience, which is rather broad and over many decades, may just happen to be be unrepresentative. Or just maybe being in battle, or facing the possibility of being in battle, focuses a lot of people’s minds and causes them to think carefully about issues of life and death.

    Is there a a law that Trump must leave office unless he wins by a huge, indisputable margin?

    Or perhaps I am misreading you and you mean simply that the Left will label it a “coup” unless Trump wins hugely?

    Personally, I don’t think Biden has the stomach for a real coup. And I suspect that the Left will accuse Trump of a “coup” even if Trump does clearly win by a huge margin.

    But the Left nowadays are not filled with people of physical courage — Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, et al. may have been monsters, but they had guts. It’s Pareto’s “lions” vs. “foxes”: the current Left are foxes, the Old Left were lions.

    Imagine a scenario like 2000 where the supreme court decides this or that, hanging chads, missing ballots, whatever. Despite being a “6-3” court, it’s not at all clear they would rule in a way that is in Trump’s favor. What if he tries to disregard that ruling? Or what if he and Joe tie in the electoral college and the House votes against him? Trump is a petty narcissist and it’s obviously possible to imagine him trying to stay in office despite what the House/SCOTUS say. Plus he will probably end up penniless and imprisoned when he’s out of office so the stakes are extra high for him.

    Forget what I wrote before. What I meant by “narrow victory” was no clear mandate from the people, the House and/or the courts. Just because 2/3rds of rank and file military people claim to be voting for him doesn’t mean they’re going to help Trump stage a coup with the help of some Lt Col. Clearly all the top military brass oppose Trump.

    Trump appointed Vermeule to the Administrative Conference of the United States, so it could be…

    Vermeule’s take is interesting: The Deep State is good, as long as it’s right-wing, and also there should be unlimited immigration of Catholics.

    It could also be James Hankins.

    Harvey Mansfield has a non-zero chance of being NeverTrump. On the other hand, he could be radicalized by now, now that he’s experienced Cancellation.

    Anonymous[419] is being kind of a jerk, hoping you don’t actually click through to his Wiki link. It cites the 2012 middlebrow book What Psychopaths Teach Us by psychologist Kevin Dutton:

    According to Dutton, the ten careers with the highest proportion of psychopaths are:
    1. CEO
    2. Lawyer
    2a. Progressive billionaire*
    3. Media (TV/radio)
    4. Salesperson
    5. Surgeon
    6. Journalist
    7. Police officer
    8. Clergy
    9. Chef
    10. Civil servant

    Just look at all those Trump-tilting occupations.

    What percentage of cops exhibit psychopathic traits, and what percentage of campaign donations do the psychopathic account for? Just like ‘419, I don’t have a clue.

    “A former U.S. Marine in Iraq, testifying Wednesday at a hearing for an American military deserter seeking asylum in Canada, said several men in his unit were “psychopaths” who enjoyed killing unarmed Iraqi civilians who posed no threat.”

    Stanford is somewhat saved by the Hoover Institution and the Stanford Review, the latter is a legacy of Peter Thiel who started the conservative paper when he was at Stanford in the 90’s. It might be the only college paper that is dedicated to conservative views, at least among elite colleges. For example, here’s a good article from the Review this week:

    https://stanfordreview.org/stanford-trump-indigenous-women/

    There are definitely some very vocal SJWs who go to Stanford. But on the whole most kids are too busy with academics to worry about politics — the benefit of a STEM focused school. Stanford is academically grueling, especially for the techies, while the “fuzzies” get no respect. Nearly 60% of Stanford kids graduate with a STEM degree, compared to less than 20% at Harvard.

    Dr. Cornel West is one of the great thinkers and public intellectuals of our time. In the wake of Bernie Sanders’ exit from the Presidential race, and in the midst of the global pandemic, he joins Michael to discuss choosing sides between milquetoast neoliberals and vicious neofascists, Ludwig van Beethoven, Jim Clyburn and wrestling with despair.

    Also note how they try to make it sound like “early results” from “in-person voting” are some kind of weird, experimental, untried thing, when actually “early results from in-person voting” just means what was always considered simply “voting”.

    In reality, of course, “absentee ballots are counted beyond election day” is the freak.

    As always, The Always Project.

  95. “Dictator Trump may try to declare victory on election night” — every MSM story.

    Remember when that always happened, except for a handful of freak close elections? Funny how now that we’re in the 21st century, and everything is digital and the internet and all, elections are going BACKWARDS into the 19th century, with paper ballots floating around in the mail and the election not decided until weeks or months later.

    Remember how everyone was freaking out about how “electronic voting” was going to lead to massive fraud? All forgotten now. The Democrats’ paper ballot strategy turned out to work best, so that’s what they’re demanding now. Is that why they unleashed the coof?

    Kind of like how they NOW love the Electoral College, which gives them many deadlines and choke points to challenge/change the results.

    What’s next? Strict constructionalism demands electors travel by coach or horse to DC, giving them opportunities to be killed or kidnapped by Democrats?

    “most kids are too busy with academics to worry about politics — the benefit of a STEM focused school. ”

    Some benefit. And people here wonder why we’re in this mess. Use social shaming to steer all the smart White people into STEM — abstract knowledge and technology useful to the globalist elites — and leave history, politics, philosophy, and especially the arts to um, dumb people like, um, Jews.

    Then try to use your engineering skills to figure out why your country and culture is now run by Jews; or what to do about it.

    It may be a quirk of White people — as dot-Indians come to dominate STEM, bringing their caste mentality with them, you may see a rise in a rather Tradtionalist politics. And you probably won’t like it either.

    Actually, the Navy/Marines implemented the OSCAR program (Operational Stress Control and Rehabilitation) about a decade ago to detect and prevent “psychopathic” or other emotional break episodes among individuals in combat roles.
    Today, about 25 percent of the Navy’s mental health workforce is embedded in operational units and all the armed forces are probably much better situated to deal with all sorts of mentally unhealthy behaviors, including psychopathy, than any civilian organization.
