    “More than N hundred million Americans are descended from nobody who held a slave*. Which ones should be forgiven when we get around to reparations?”
    It’s almost as if they’re insincere lying pieces of shit or something and it’s all kto kogo + 0 principles. Almost! In reality you’ll find nearly 100% of journalists descended from slave-holders, and nearly 0% of those they’re haranguing descended from slave-holders. Nearly.

    *P.S. Nobody in American “enslaved” anyone; they were bought from other Africans who had already enslaved them. At most, almost nobody. The usual case was that an American would inherit slaves. It’s not like there were free-roaming packs of lost, clueless Bantu who got rounded up and clapped in chains by grinning fat cats.

    P.P.S. Russians pronounce g as v, so it sounds like kto kovo. Also it’s actually a gamma, not a g.

    It blows my mind that somebody made the calculation that this helps get more drone assassinations. But stuff like this makes it clear the neocons are returning home to the Democrats. But given stuff like this, it seems so. Who cares about a couple hundred thousand dead.

    Which is even more surreal since the actual woke aren’t going for this, but like the far-right nationalists who launched the maidan revolution, they’re tools to be ignored on the important issues. The general upper middle class liberals though, they really seem not to care.

    As I said earlier elsewhere on this blog, hating the dead is a sign of psychopathic behavior.

    Particularly in the case where the deceased did not harm you or anyone you know in any specific way.

    Of course the Silver Lining here (for Wokesters) is that these Evil Dead members of Congress were all men!

    Slavery was long gone before women could vote or become congresswomen.

    Someday the WaPo will do some sleuthing and discover that thousands of ancestors of living black (Black!) Africans were enriched by enslaving and selling their “bad neighbors” who were also blacks (Blacks!) into slavery. So American blacks have blood on their hands as well (or at least ancestral cousins.)

    Virtually all blacks sold into slavery were initially captured and sold by other black Africans. Amazing, something they failed to teach you in school!

    Let the NAACP Hatefest of evil African ancestors begin! Perhaps they will allow some white folks (White!) to also attend their Spirit Cleansing rituals to atone for their sins. So both slave sellers and buyers can be equally forgiven.

    I’m sure iSteve will keep us posted on those upcoming events.

  14. You aren’t ever going to get a Washington Post headline regarding the religion of half the London and Amsterdam slave trading corporation owners in 1650 though. That would be embarrassing. Nation of Islam publications have it covered though. : )

    Who reads the Washington Post? The last time I clicked on a WP linked it took me to a gateway page, not the story, and my frustration could be measured in nano-poops.

  15. That’s an interesting web page the Post has there. Of course, we have an article about the institution of slavery… and just to the right of that one we have an article about a recent event in the Bronx which demonstrates vividly (even ‘glowingly’) why we have long needed such tight control over Black folk.

    That admission is itself an obfuscation. From wikipedia:

    His paternal grandfather was of Spanish-Cuban background, and his three other grandparents were of Eastern European Jewish descent.

    Ron Unz already demonstrated a decade ago that he probably benefited more from his other three grandparents more than his Cuban one when it came to Harvard admissions. Didn’t hurt that his dad was a screenwriter, too.

Biden’s foreign policy status is far, far worse than Carter’s. Ezra Klein wrote an op-ed in the Times bemoaning effectively that Bannon is winning — Bannon, not Trump, who wouldn’t be winning anyway because he never met an enemy he didn’t want to put in office. Enough Democrat congresscritters have already retired, without even getting to serious contests, that the House is in serious jeopardy.*
    Thus, babble about dead racists. It’s literally the delapidated, late Soviet Union: “and you are lynching negroes.”

  40. Ten of the first 12 presidents owned slaves, the exceptions being the Adamses. Van Buren owned one, who got loose, and wasn’t worth taking back.

    This means the names Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Harrison, Tyler, Polk, and Taylor have to be removed. That’s one “national” capital, three state capitals, and a whole bunch of other cities and counties. James Polk alone has ten counties named for him, and two for Polk relatives.

    Six counties are named for John Floyd, governor of Virginia during the Turner rebellion, the aftermath of which he finessed. These will have to be renamed for George!

    Interestingly, American Colonization Society co-founder Henry Clay has as many counties named for him, 18, as does Abraham Lincoln.

    That Bronx fire on the lower right of the page was the sort of thing that looked like nothing much at first, but then got far, far worse. Only two of the 100+ apartments in the 19-story building actually burned. Unfortunately, a couple of what were supposed to be self-closing doors did not close, and heavy smoke spread up the stairwells into the upper stories. Most of the 17 deaths (initially reported as 19) were in the upper hallways and all were the result of smoke inhalation rather than burns. Several more people are in very bad shape and the death toll might rise.
    Most of the building’s residents were Gambian immigrants.

    Here is who lived in the building:

    They are Muslim Africans from Gambia, Mali, etc. (they can now vote in NYC elections). The building was Section 8 meaning that you are paying their rent.

    The building was heated but not apparently to appropriate tropical levels so the family where the fire broke out had a space heater running continuously until it sparked a fire. Then when they ran out they left the door to their apartment open, allowing the fire to get more air and to fill the rest of the building with smoke. The self closing doors were broken or perhaps tampered with.

    Hassane Badr’s family, a total of 11 people from Mali, including his parents and siblings, lived in a three-bedroom apartment on the third floor. Two siblings, both children, were killed, he said, adding that a 25-year-old cousin remained unaccounted for.

    At Jacobi Medical Center, Mr. Badr waited for news about his 12-year-old brother, who was suffering from serious smoke inhalation. A 5-year-old sister, who was also injured, was at another hospital.
    … “I’m thinking like I’m dreaming, this is not true. You hear people crying, my goodness,” said Mr. Badr, 28.

    Do the math . Hassane’s parents had 9 children ranging from age 5 to 28 at least. So say 1 baby rougly every other year from age 17 to 40. A few generation of this and a few generations of Muffy and Leah squeezing out 1 IVF kid at 38 and NY is 90% Hassanes and 10% Muffies and Leahs.

    The “self-closing doors” are at the fire stairs. The Africans propped them open for their own convenience. How do you stop that? They’ll just do it again tomorrow.

    However, the proximate cause was the Africans leaving the door to their free duplex apartment open after they’d set it on fire.

    If they had only been white, the MSM would be plastering their faces all over the front pages, with considered calls from pundits demanding that they be prosecuted for mass murder.

    Of course, if they’d been white there wouldn’t be so many faces because whites don’t have eight children per family.

    As it stands, however, the Africans will be rewarded with another free duplex apartment. Just this week NY has conferred the franchise on illegal immigrants and Calif has declared that they shall enjoy free medical care for life.

    Amazing, isn’t it, how mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times always like to spike up black grievance front-and-center in their headlines, isn’t it? Clearly, and cleverly, they know that black folks are far too easily manipulated and misled so they consistently run headlines featuring stories from either 1860 or 1922 concerning black misery at the hands of whites, thus convincing them to believe that nothing has changed in over century.

    Shades of the UK Grenfell Tower fire of 2017.

    In both cases, the conflagration started in an apartment occupied by a subsaharan African immigrant and involved an ‘electrical appliance’ and rather dubious, suspicious circumstances. Despite ‘global warming’ the tropical origin family which occupied this Bronx flat felt the need to deploy a ‘space heater’. One hopes it was not one of those industrial cannon shaped jobbies which have a truly prodigious output.

    Another similarity with Grenfell is the fact that the low income low productivity taxeaters thus housed – whom The Economist solemnly pontificates are the ‘future’ of the west – somehow were placed in the midst of some of the damned most expensive real estate on the planet.

We would never agree on borders and not everyone would go willingly. And even if those things weren’t true, eventually our enemies would invade us or try to.

    “The survival of that little country to our day is one of the miracles of Negro effort”.

    That’s one way of putting it.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberia#Early_colonization

    The Americo-Liberian settlers did not relate well to the indigenous peoples they encountered, especially those in communities of the more isolated “bush”. The colonial settlements were raided by the Kru and Grebo, from their inland chiefdoms. Encounters with tribal Africans in the bush often became violent. Believing themselves different from and culturally and educationally superior to the indigenous peoples, the Americo-Liberians developed as an elite minority that created and held on to political power. In a conscious effort to emulate the American South, the Americo-Liberian settlers adopted clothing such as hoop skirts and tailcoats, and excluded natives from economic opportunities, including creating plantations on which natives were forced to work as slaves. Indigenous tribesmen did not enjoy birthright citizenship in their own land until 1904. Americo-Liberians encouraged religious organizations to set up missions and schools to educate the indigenous peoples.

    Well, Grenfell was a demonstration that slapping outside isolation cladding on high-rises without further fire retardation tricks might not be such a good idea after all. Especially if the building doesn’t have a sprinkler system (say what?):

    ‘In wake of Grenfell Tower fire, May’s government must go’

    The previous government, between 2010-2015, they had one-in-two out rule. What that means is that for every regulation they decided to impose, they insisted on removing two. And the then-housing minister, who is now the immigration minister, in fact, specifically, when he was challenged as to whether he should put a rule in place that said that sprinkler systems should be fit in the buildings like this, as they already have to be in Germany, Wales, in Scotland, etc., his justification for not putting this rule in place was that they had this totally ideological idea that for every regulation they imposed they had to remove two. That was his specific justification. If there had been a sprinkler system in this building, despite all the other massive failings – that would’ve stopped people dying, and that didn’t happen.

    It was also somehow embiggened to a big bad case of 1) racism 2) 6 million dead blacks still to be discovered in the debris 3) “neoliberalism” run amok – with some justification as the development company immediately went on to score more contracts

    Grenfell Tower contractor’s hiring for new project in London highlights neoliberal outsourcing nightmare

    Ealing says it selected Rydon as a ‘partner’ for their project to demolish the 264-home High Lane estate and replace it with 450 homes in April 2017, i.e. two months before the Grenfell Fire. But why couldn’t they have put the decision on hold until after the inquiry into the fire which, lest we forget, caused the death of 72 people?

    What this highlights is how outsourcing in the neoliberal era allows councils and companies to evade proper responsibility. Only last month, Sir Martin Moore-Bick, the judge in charge of the Grenfell Inquiry, said in his report into the first phase of the fire that the aluminium composite material cladding on the outside of the tower was the ‘primary cause’ of the flames spreading up the building. He said the external facade failed to comply with building regulations.

    So, who’s responsible? Kensington and Chelsea London Borough Council? They contracted Kensington and Chelsea TMO to manage the Grenfell building, who then commissioned another company to manage the refurbishment project. Rydon was given an £8.7 million (\$11.2 million) contract for the refurbishment. But they subcontracted the cladding installation to another firm, Harley Facades, who got their panels from another company.

    The survivors’ lawyer said the refurbishment turned the building into a ‘death-trap.’ But who should we hold to account?

    Meanwhile, this just in, “money is free” is now the pervading approach for everything:

    UK govt demands housebuilders spend billions to fix dangerous cladding

    The government’s letter to developers meets the request from campaigners for a £4 billion package to protect them against the extortionate costs of tackling cladding. However, activists urged Gove to expand the areas covered to other fire-safety issues, such as wooden balconies where “people are still facing life-changing costs.”

    Do they even have enough people to replace the cladding or make it safe?

    EU Parliament president dead at 65: European Parliament President David Sassoli has died after a prolonged stay in the hospital due to an immune system dysfunction

    He was EuroCore:

    Before he was elected head of the EU Parliament in 2019, Sassoli previously served as the delegation leader for the left-wing Democratic Party, and became an MEP in 2009 with the most votes in his constituency. He later received an endorsement from the parliament’s Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, helping him land the presidency.

    A vocal critic of Russia, Sassoli was banned from entering the country alongside a number of other European officials last year following a raft of new EU sanctions on Moscow, which the parliament chief had urged to “tighten.”

    Sassoli was also a high-level proponent of the EU’s digital Covid-19 certificate – which records individuals’ coronavirus testing, vaccination, and infection history – calling it “a symbol of what Europe stands for” while unveiling the project with fellow EU leaders last summer.

  93. OT but I missed this from two years ago – it looks as if World War T had been pretty carefully planned:

    https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-document-that-reveals-the-remarkable-tactics-of-trans-lobbyists

    People and organisations that at the start of this decade had no clear policy on or even knowledge of trans issues are now enthusiastically embracing non-binary gender identities and transition, offering gender-neutral toilets and other changes required to accommodate trans people and their interests. These changes have, among other things, surprised many people. They wonder how this happened, and why no one seems to have asked them what they think about it, or considered how those changes might affect them.

    Some of the bodies that have embraced these changes with the greatest zeal are surprising: the police are not famous social liberals but many forces are now at the vanguard here, even to the point of checking our pronouns and harassing elderly ladies who say the wrong thing on Twitter.

    How did we get here? I think we can discount the idea that this is a simple question of organisations following a changing society. Bluntly, society still doesn’t know very much about transgenderism… So the question again: how did organisations with small budgets and limited resources achieve such stunning success, not just in the UK but elsewhere?

    Well, thanks to the legal website Roll On Friday, I have now seen a document that helps answer that question.

    The document is the work of Dentons, which says it is the world’s biggest law firm; the Thomson Reuters Foundation, an arm of the old media giant that appears dedicated to identity politics of various sorts; and the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Youth & Student Organisation (IGLYO). Both Dentons and the Thomson Reuters Foundation note that the document does not necessarily reflect their views.

    The report is called ‘Only adults? Good practices in legal gender recognition for youth’. Its purpose is to help trans groups in several countries bring about changes in the law to allow children to legally change their gender, without adult approval and without needing the approval of any authorities. ‘We hope this report will be a powerful tool for activists and NGOs working to advance the rights of trans youth across Europe and beyond,’ says the foreword.

    Relevant doc here – who funds this lot?

    https://www.iglyo.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/IGLYO_v3-1.pdf

    Anyway, here’s another tip from the document: ‘Tie your campaign to more popular reform.’

    For example:

    ‘In Ireland, Denmark and Norway, changes to the law on legal gender recognition were put through at the same time as other more popular reforms such as marriage equality legislation. This provided a veil of protection, particularly in Ireland, where marriage equality was strongly supported, but gender identity remained a more difficult issue to win public support for.’

    I’ve added my bold there, because I think those are very telling phrases indeed. This is an issue that is ‘difficult to win public support for’ and best hidden behind the ‘veil of protection’ provided by a popular issue such as gay rights. Again, anyone who has even glanced at the UK transgender debate will recognise this description.

    Another recommendation is even more revealing: ‘Avoid excessive press coverage and exposure.

    According to the report, the countries that have moved most quickly to advance trans rights and remove parental consent have been those where the groups lobbying for those changes have succeeded in stopping the wider public learning about their proposals. Conversely, in places like Britain, the more ‘exposure’ this agenda has had, the less successful the lobbying has been:

    ‘Another technique which has been used to great effect is the limitation of press coverage and exposure. In certain countries, like the UK, information on legal gender recognition reforms has been misinterpreted in the mainstream media, and opposition has arisen as a result. ….Against this background, many believe that public campaigning has been detrimental to progress, as much of the general public is not well informed about trans issues, and therefore misinterpretation can arise.

    In Ireland, activists have directly lobbied individual politicians and tried to keep press coverage to a minimum in order to avoid this issue.’ (Emphasis added).

    San Francisco’s Luxurious New Skyscraper Is Tilting 26 Inches

    In a contradiction that defies improbability, data shows that around 10 inches of the overall 26-inch tilt happened last year following work to stop the sinking. In an investigative report, NBC Bay Area revealed that drilling logs show a gap of one to four days between drilling and grout installation. In the article, the NC Bay Area stated, “While Millennium fix officials discounted the issue to authorities, some outside experts say such delays in grouting could very well explain the comparatively rapid settlement and tilting that occurred during pile installation in August.”

    Not sure that a “contradiction that defies improbability” means what Shivani Vorat intends. I’m of the view that things, including things to un-f*** other things, frequently don’t go as planned, and not uncommonly make things worse. This building seems like a pretty good metaphor for several current phenomena. I wrote about it as such several years ago.

    Any way, if I’m the mayor of San Francisco watching this slow, vertical trainwreck, I’m thinking very seriously of telling the parties nice try but the building is coming down, slowly and carefully and the opposite of how it went up. But there are powerful financial and psycho-social forces against such a decision.

    Grenfell was in a high income area (as was the apartment that just caught on fire in Philly killing 12 – the NY story is getting a lot more attention because it’s NY). The Bronx, where this building is, is not a high income area.

    UK fire code standards seems lower than either the US or Europe. For example, in the UK it was permitted to make the back of the fridge out of (flammable) plastic. In the US, fridge backs have to be metal so if the wiring inside the fridge overheats and catches on fire it would probably stay confined to the fridge.

    That’s easy for you to say because it’s not your money. The building isn’t in any apparent danger of falling over and the lean is only increasing a few inches per year – as we know from a certain tower in Pisa, buildings can lean over for centuries without actually falling down. The tilt is approximate 2 feet over the 600 foot height. This would be equivalent to your 25′ tall house being 1 inch out of plumb (which it very well may be).

    Eventually they are going to connect the building to bedrock which should absolutely prevent any further leaning. In the old days connection to bedrock was the only way to build a skyscraper but nowadays they have other methods that usually work (though not in this case).

Doors in high rises are supposed to have self closers but these are frequently broken or maybe disabled by the occupants. If the door is closed properly then usually the fire can be put out before it spreads further or fills the building with smoke.

To the extent that fire departments have had to expand into ambulance service. Sometimes it seems there are more prairie and forest fires than building fires.

    One excellent thing nowadays is that all the Baby and Childcare books pediatricians pamphlets Scouts, after school programs advice to parents all advise parents and kids to do fire drills. If the kids bedroom is next to the laundry room and the laundry has an outside door get out through that door because it’s the nearest.

    In the US, fridge backs have to be metal so if the wiring inside the fridge overheats and catches on fire it would probably stay confined to the fridge.

    Consumer stuff that take a lot of amps, like table top ovens and oil filled radiant heaters seem to have a problem wherein the use of quick press-on crimped connectors for the AC leads to a thermal failure point. The high amperage combined with the unavoidable milliohms of the crimped connection leads to high temperatures. I had a Delonghi Italian oven where the switch literally melted several times where the connectors entered the body. I was using one of those oil filled heaters when suddenly there was sizzling arcing sound accompanied by bluish light exiting the switch compartment. High temp thermal cycling at a connection had made the adjacent wire insulation brittle and the multi-strand copper wire eventually fatigued one strand at a time until an arcing failure occurred.

    I hope that whoever designs this stuff will do an infrared analysis with a cheap \$300 thermal camera and use some better connectors. I was looking at a YT video on the manufacture of christmas light strings and they showed that in the manufacturing process that they soldered the leads of the bulbs, even applying flux automatically, so they could do that for crimped connections.

    The first step would be for normie whites to re-locate to a white state. To escape being persecuted move to a white state. Maine and New Hampshire are the only states which are still 94% White. Raise your family in a white state to avoid seeing your children discriminated against and to reduce the risk of being assaulted, killed or raped by non-whites. Raising kids in a white state will improve their childhood and school experience. Living in a white state also increases the opportunity of having white grandchildren.

    If 250,000 normie Whites moved to Maine they would dominate the state politically and have the power to choose their Governor and legislature. They would control the school boards and city councils……This is the first step to establishing a separate nation. Whites must first create a white state. We do this by moving into a white state and establishing control. It cannot be done in a state which is already 10% Black or over 10% Latino.

    It should also be noted for the record that there are numerous accounts of blacks in America owning slaves themselves. Free blacks owned slaves. Not many but some.

    Also Indians, particularly the Cherokees, who were chased from the South into what is now Oklahoma. I believe the Cherokee nation actually publicly endorsed the Confederacy at the time.

    Things are rarely so simple as “black & white.”

    Slave owning was the norm throughout history. Captured soldiers and civilians (in particular women and children) were sold as slaves in most societies. The color didn’t matter.

    The only general bar to slavery was a co-religionist (of the right sect) or a co-tribal or ethnic member. That helped with religious conversion. Also why Southern Christians usually prohibited religious services for their slaves.

    American chattel slavery was a bit different due to more advanced legal systems, though ancient Rome and Greece and others had laws about slaves and treatment.

    The thing about slavery was that it was costly, like owning real estate. You had to spend money to keep slaves alive. Even the USSR Gulags were ended after Stalin’s death because the Politburo and NKVD knew it was very expensive and a negative economic burden to use slave labor.

    Of course the details of history are of no value to the Woke Narrative. So that is ignored.

    Reparations for slavery should certainly be paid.

    To its living victims. If you can find one. Are there any left outside Mauritania and South Sudan?

    Rather the money to fund reparations should come from those estates and companies who benefitted from the slave trade.

    “Rather the money to fund reparations should come from those estates and companies and political parties who benefitted from the slave trade.”

    Maybe this was true at one time and maybe POTENTIALLY white gentiles could go it alone. But if everyone who was not a white gentile disappeared tomorrow and if everything that white gentiles eat, wear or use had to be made in the US by white gentiles starting tomorrow, you would be in deep deep shit at least in the short run.

    International trade is always interesting but really has nothing to do with my point.

    My point is the flow of dependency within America–or any other Western nation for that matter. And the point is again that:
    — the joint is nice because of white gentiles not minorities
    — white gentiles do not need minorities (whites are not dependent on minorities)
    — it is minorities that insist on being resident/around/sponging-off-of white gentiles … belying their “oppression” narrative

    Not the same point as trade. Take Sweden for example. Until a couple decades back, generally considered a really nice place. Nice, not because of the small smattering of Jews; not because of the Lapps; not because of muslims (none there); not because of the Balkan Slavs (few there); not because of the blacks (none there). Just because ethnic Swedes are capable, suitably cooperative and law abiding and ergo roll out a nice nation. But obviously as a small nation they can’t produce all the specific industrial products they’d like to consume and so are very actively involved in trade. Has nothing to do with why Sweden was nice … and why so many minorities have glommed onto it.

    Note this point isn’t limited to white people. Some of the East Asians are obviously quite capable of creating nice societies. For instance, South Koreans have created a very nice patch. (So i hear–never been). But it’s a nice patch entirely because of Koreans. (Not talking about the defense arrangement but the niceness of the society created.) But obviously they can’t produce every modern product and Korea is very trade dependent. But no dependence on minorities for its niceness, its functioning. (Though what they really seem to struggle producing is Korean babies.)

    And note this hasn’t been true of all white societies in time. Feudal nobility as a class did not have nice things because they produced them. They lived well only because of the actual productive labor of the serfs. Analyzed independently–parasites. Plantation owners in the antebellum South likewise–however capable–were not independently complete. Unfortunately, the place had developed as a slave society and they were indeed dependent on black labor. But this is not the case for America as a whole, and not even the South anymore.

    ~~~

    It’s fun to pound your chest and crow about this but I’m afraid that if you really had to deal with a “Separate Nations” scenario it would be much harder than you think.

    Again, “separate nations” != “no international trade”–two very different things. But even if we were working toward the later white gentiles are way more capable than you seem to think. (BTW, the difficulty would seem to be in certain electronic products like flat screens where our silly “finance first!” polices have left us exposed and capability would be a climb. Clothing in contrast is about the easiest thing imaginable to repatriate to whatever extent was desired.)

    But far from a dreary slog, any sort of “separate nations” that actually got normies out-from-under the minoritarian tyranny, would be wildly invigorating. Yeah, we’d have to work, but we’d have something to work for–“ourselves and our posterity”. It would be wonderful!

    I wasn’t just referring to international trade. Certain products/services in the US were always provided by certain non-gentile minorities in a strangely specific way. For example when I was growing up on an egg farm, the people who “sexed” chickens were 100% Japanese.

    On an egg farm you want 100% of the chickens to be female. Roosters are useless eaters. So immediately after hatching, someone at the hatchery has to distinguish the males from the females, which is not that easy to do and especially not easy to do quickly, thousands of times per day, every day. The males go in the trash BTW.

    There were many niches like this. Chinese ran laundries. Italians sold vegetables. Jews sewed clothing. Armenians sold rugs. Could white gentiles be trained to provided these goods and services? Sure, but not overnight and a lot of these occupations are frankly not the kind of thing that white gentiles really like to do – it just doesn’t suit their personality. Theoretically you could get people to do them if you paid them enough but reality is not theory.

    A quote from the introduction:

    William Henry Seward, Lincoln’s anti-slavery Secretary of State during the Civil War, born in 1801, grew up in Orange County, New York, in a slave-owning family and amid neighbors who owned slaves if they could afford them. The family of Abraham Lincoln himself, when it lived in Pennsylvania in colonial times, owned slaves.

    I don’t point these facts out to tar Northerners nor Republicans, but rather to point out that slavery was ubiquitous in the U.S. and during the period from the Revolution through to the Civil War. And slavery was much less significant in the U.S. (including Southern States) than in the rest of the New World.

    I agree. Separate nations are not possible without violence….But White nationalists could band together and maintain White states within the US. We already have Maine , New Hampshire and Vermont which are just 1% Black. Whites who seek to live amongst fellow Whites can do so today by moving to a state which is already 90% White. If enough like-minded whites nationalists re-located to Maine they would have the political power to elect a normie Governor and keep the state 95% White.

    Currently only 4 states are over 90% white. With effort and migration we will be lucky to keep these 4 states 90% white as the United States will soon be 55% non-White. To maintain the white population of Maine at current levels will require thousands of Whites to re-locate to Maine. The White population of Maine is mostly elderly folks, with more Whites over the age of 65 than under the age of 20. Without white migration into the state Maine will soon be less than 90% White.

    While some here fantasize about having a separate white nation , my hope is that we can maintain a few states at 90% white so that whites in America will still have the option of living amongst fellow whites and have schools for our children which are 98% white like we have today in Maine and Vermont.

    There’s a Spanish TV series Grande Hotel. It’s set in a very grand rural vacation resort in Spain about 1900. Basically murder mysteries and a Downton Abbey period drama. But unlike borrring Downton Abbey things happen. So many murders I can’t remember them all.

    The first episode is the electrification of the hotel. Scenes of electricians finishing up. Hotel workers unloading big boxes labeled Edison light bulbs. Putting in light bulbs. Big New Year’s party to turn the lights on for the first time.

    There’s a nice scene after the place is electrification. It’s night a maid sits in the servants living room writing a letter to her family. She writes about how much time and effort saved by electricity. No more cleaning greasy soot from oil lamps. Scraping candle wax off candle sticks and furniture. She finishes the letter. When she leaves the room she switches off the light. Then switches it off and on a couple times with the happiest smile.

    She’s the first of many murder victims.

    The hotel also got electric irons for the laundry maids at the same time.

    No one was using oil lamps in Oak Park (a Chicago suburb) in 1922. The candles were just to decorate the Christmas tree – an decorative custom like putting candles on your birthday cake. Not for illumination.

    In 1922, some people were still lighting their houses with gas lamps although it was on the decline. The light from gas mantle lamps is not bad but they put out a lot of heat in the summer.

    In rural areas where electricity had not yet reached, they would have had kerosene lanterns. The wick type were not very bright but they also had mantle lamps that ran on kerosene which were quite bright.

    A gas mantle is made of (slightly radioactive) chemical salts that glow very brightly when heated. The flame heats the mantle and the mantle gives off a significant amount of light, a lot more than a candle.

    I don’t think anyone was using candles as a main source of illumination in 1922.

    Joe, they are going to stabilize the tower eventually. As often happens, when you are trying to fix something, sometime you have to make it worse before it gets better. The plan is to “underpin” the tower. I’ve been involved in underpinning on a small scale (row house type buildings). In order to add more foundation support under a building, first you have to undermine it, which makes things temporarily worse until you can pour the underpinning. That’s what happened here but there’s no reason to panic.

    In the case of the tower, the plan is eventually to drive pilings all the way down to bedrock (a couple of hundred feet) on the side of the building that is sinking excessively. Once the building is connected to the pilings which are connected to bedrock, it becomes impossible for it to sink further on that side. The other side of the building will continue to sink normally and eventually pull the building back to plumb.

    In the case of modern skyscrapers that are not connected to bedrock, they expect them to sink a certain amount, but to sink evenly on all sides. Once the soil is compressed a certain amount it stops sinking. Apparently there was work done on adjoining sites that disturbed the even distribution of forces that they were expecting so the sinking did not take place evenly.

    From the abstract:
    We found an increased transmission for unvaccinated individuals, and a reduced transmission for booster-vaccinated individuals, compared to fully vaccinated individuals. Comparing households infected with the Omicron to Delta VOC, we found an 1.17 (95%-CI: 0.99-1.38) times higher SAR for un- vaccinated, 2.61 times (95%-CI: 2.34-2.90) higher for fully vaccinated and 3.66 (95%-CI: 2.65-5.05) times higher for booster-vaccinated individuals, demonstrating strong evidence of immune evasiveness of the Omicron VOC.

    So, vaccinated was better than unvaccinated. Boosted was better than just two shots. Relative to Delta, Omicron was more transmissible. This study confirmed what we already knew. Omicron is very transmissible and the vaccines are less protective. They are more protective than going in with a naked immune system and only your “FUCK FAU-XI” shirt for protection.

    I am not quite sure how to put this delicately. You all are really bad at reading scientific papers. Do you have a hard science degree? Are you in biomedicine? Are there maybe reasons for both of those things?

The whole thing is enclosed in a metal cabinet without much venting (just a little clearance around the thermostat knob) so I don’t think it would have gone any further if I hadn’t been home. I called the mfr to see if they were interested in seeing it and they weren’t. I’ve also had a baseboard heater go bad at the connection that way. Same deal – it can’t really start a fire because it’s inside a metal box and there is not enough stuff to burn.

    I think that’s why the mfrs are not super excited about these failures – they don’t really lead to fires because they are contained. For a fire you need fuel and oxygen and there is not much of either at these failure points. The tiny bit of insulation smolders and then self extinguishes.

    412,

    Tony Martin wasn’t the “foremost historian” of anything. He wasn’t an historian or any other sort of scholar. He was just a lying, black supremacist anti-Semite.

    I am unfamiliar w/ any of these details. The story didn’t really get that much coverage in the US after the fire itself. What coverage there was concerned the flammability of the cladding material (and the fridge back). Do you have any links?

    All the stories I saw pointed to the failure of the fridge. I don’t know how you could fake that. Fire leaves tracks such that you can trace it back to the source and you can look for accelerants, etc. In the recent fire that killed 12 in Philly, the investigators announced that they were between 99% and 100% certain that the fire started at the Christmas tree (which a 5 year old playing with a lighter set on fire – ironically he survived but he killed 12 family members).

    I think \$50 was more in line with typical slave rewards. The \$400 was because he was really really angry at whoever stole his slave. I’m not sure how serious the \$400 reward was given how out of line it was with the normal reward. There may well have been some backstory here that we’re not getting such as Alden suggested.

    Lol! The whiteness of guilt, all pervasive, all the time. The one thing that is not now and never will be inclusive or diverse.

    ‘I suggest there would be many benefits to rephrasing your question as “How would the lives of African-Americans be improved if there had never been slavery?”’

    That’s easy. They’d all be physicists and computer programmers ‘n shit.

    Of course, if there hadn’t been slavery, there would have been no African-Americans, so there you are.

    The good old days fireplaces, cooking in fireplaces instead of stoves , candles. There’s a Bronte book set in a boarding school. Not little girls but teens. Only staff were allowed to carry candles. No students, not even 17 and 18 year olds students.

    From Handy Andy: The Andy Pafko Story, p.9:

    Early on the morning of February 25, 1928, his seventh birthday, Andy went along with. Two friends, Paul Yurik and Even Vano, to the Slovak Lutheran Church to build a fire for a school session for the Slovak children. The boys repeatedly attempted to keep the fire going, but it continued to go out. To help the fire along, Paul doused it with high-test gasoline, thinking it was regular gasoline. It was a fatal mistake. The fire trail burned back to the gas container and exploded, igniting the clothes of all three boys. Yurik took the brunt of the explosion, yet engulfd in flames he was able to help Vano and Pafko out of the room. The two boys made it to the home of the minister nearby for help. When they returned, Yuri had managed to crawl out of the church into the snow, but was unable to fully smother the flames that had consumed his heavy winter clothes. He died four hours later from the burns. Vano escaped elatively unscathed, but Pafko wasn’t as lucky. He had been holding the door of the stove open for Yurik. Due to the proximity to the blast, he suffered burns to his face, causing severe sarring on the right side. He was also blind fora week, during which time doctors weren’t sure if he would ever regain his sight.

    Pafko rarely spoke of the event, but when Esquire did an expose on him during his rookie season, he said, “I owe my life to Paul Yurik.”

    “A friend is a researcher at the Mayo Clinic. He confirms Israel is considering going from 4 vaccines a year to ómicron parties.”

    I think your ability to parse what your Mayo friend is trying to tell you is on par with your ability to read Danish research papers, and Rob already clued you in on that.

    As for Israel, its Covid death toll is currently about 2/day, and if they’re deciding to lift restrictions as a result, good for them. But if you’re trying to use Israel’s ability to laugh off omicron infections as an example of vaccines NOT working, good luck with that.

    I think even in 1928 it was not a good idea to douse a fire with gasoline, even if it was just regular and not high test. In those days regular gas had an octane rating of 40 (similar to Coleman camping fuel today) but it was still not a good idea.

    Chinese ran laundries. Italians sold vegetables. Jews sewed clothing. Armenians sold rugs.

    The laundry my mother frequented was called ‘Leary’s’. She bought her vegetables from local stores founded and run by people named ‘Wegman’ and ‘Burdett’. The tailor she sometimes visited was Mr. Jewett, whose family was old colonial (https://www.ancestry.com/name-origin?surname=jewett). I think the man who cut up her old oriental rug was Mr. Deverian, so you got that right.

    The oldest boy and leader had just turned 11. How much did farm boys know back then, especially when their parents’ English was weak?

    Some pearls, aimed at other commenters, from your own œuvre:

    •Idiot.

    •Stop lying old woman… You don’t “bump into dozens” of people because you spend your days being hysterical on the internet.

    •Aren’t you special and brave? Fag.

    •More words and more blabber. Be quiet old woman.

    •You have failed her PharmacistDave [sic] by not teaching her to not be an 🍑⚫ like you. You’re a 💩y father. Now get off your high horse and grow up. Then get out of my country.

    •Assuming she has some of your personality traits, its becoming more and more clear why your daughter’s roommate and everyone else at UCLA came to hate her.

    •Which makes you a typical self-absorbed boomer 🍑⚫. You probably drive 55 in the passing lane too. Shut up Achnad.

    •STFU

    •STFU

    •STFU

    Simple common courtesy is too “boomer”, I guess.

    Steve has quoted several of these commenters. Do let us know should he ever quote you.

    Ok, she is replaced by a Maltan moderate conservative Roberta Metsola. It seems to be a slight improvement. I noticed she has a Finnish surname. Her husband is a fin.
