From Audacious Epigone:

Parenthetically, the putative war on women is really a war on marriage. One of Steve Sailer’s many great insights over the years has been noting how the much talked about gender gap is reliably dwarfed by the much larger marriage gap.

So it is with the Kavanaugh calumny. The following graphs show firstly the percentages of respondents, by sex and marital status, who support Kavanaugh’s nomination with “don’t know” responses excluded, and secondly the gap in support by sex and then the gaps in support between married and never-married members of the same sex (N = 19,561):

The gap in support for Kavanaugh between married and never-married members of the same sex is more than twice as large as it is between men and women in general.

  1. I like that they excluded the I Don’t Knows, but aren’t we really talking about a tiny subset of the population?

    How many people in this country know who Judge Kavanaugh is? 5%? 10%?

    How many are actually following this closely? 1%?

    I use my brother as an everyman on these kind of issues and he has absolutely no clue that any of this is happening. The polls sometimes indicate that about 25-40% of people can identify a Supreme Court Justice, but that seems way too high. Could your mailman name one? Any of the people who work at the supermarket? Cops? No way. Unless you live in the political bubble, take a look around today and try to guess how many of the people you see have anything more than a fleeting idea that this is happening.

    I know a couple in flyover country. She has cable news on all the time, listens to Rush, Hannity, etc. He leaves the house because he just does not care about politics. There may well be more of him than her.

    I hope this latest farce will motivate people to vote because that is all that counts.
    I predict more than a few voting irregularities in November as the Ds practice their Vote Fraud 2020 tactics.

    "How many are actually following this closely? 1%?"

    1% at most. In passing conversation I've alluded to the hearings, and nobody picks up what I'm dropping. And I've overheard no conversations about the topic.

    Low-info voters saw a couple minutes on the 10 o'clock news where a ropey-looking cat lady pretended to get choked up about something-or-other and an angry white guy genuinely got choked up about something-or-other, then there was this fruity-looking politician who yelled about something-or-other and some angry white chick frothing about something-or-other. Hurry up, I wanna know what the weekend weather is like!

    You can't turn on a TV without seeing it, and there are TVs everywhere in America. This is the ultimate made for TV drama since everyone can have an opinion on it (everyone had uncomfortable makeouts while they were young). I don't know what you mean by "following it closely," but I would guess the number who have formed an opinion about it is close 70%.

    If I had to bet, I would say the entire saga is just the Swamp putting a show for the hoi polloi. I don't believe any of it is real.
    , @Alden
    Since every news channel is blasting the hearing hourly I think any who watches TV is aware of the hearing.

    I saw the front page of local newspaper today. Entire page was about the hearings with 3 inch letters.

    Let’s speculate about why the minions of Satan hate Kavanaugh so much. Maybe because he worked with Starr on Clinton’s impeachment?

    The state of Maryland abolished statute of limitations on sex assault a few years ago. Now the state of Maryland and Montgomery County sheriff are opening an investigation into anything and everything Kavanaugh ever did.

    He can be destroyed by this. If there’s an ambitious Montgomery county DA like the POS that tried to prosecute the Duke Lacrosse team Kavanaugh will be destroyed by legal bills. And his kids are young.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the liberals do to him what they did to Forrestal, throw him out a window and and say it’s suicide.
    , @Corvinus
    Gold box for you, although it was AE, NOT the poll, who excluded the "Don't Knows", and he does it for partisan purposes. To me, the actual poll numbers say more about the pulse of the nation--31% oppose, 30% support, and 38% don't know. Also important to note is that the poll does not offer insight as to the political affiliation of the respondents.

    To be fair, there are still some people who will not marry without love. So if a fiance(e) died or the only one they really want does not return their interest, or is what used to be called "unsuitable" for some reason, they will not insult someone else or themselves by "settling."

    Fr. Lasance's classic guide The Catholic Girl points out that if a woman is not called to religious life or marriage, a vocation to live single in the world may be both virtuous and beneficial to others. He gives the example of a woman who became almost a second mother to her nieces and nephews when the family was in trouble. She certainly came off better than the women who currently marry for all the wrong reasons (when they marry at all), as they do in Hollywood.

    Those numbers are super depressing...

    If I am understanding correctly, among indigenous British the illegitimacy rate must be over 50% (!), because Muslims, Sikhs, etc. don't tolerate that stuff, and minorities are probably 20% of births.

    Even the Israeli numbers are concerning. Since I have to assume that illegitimacy is basically non-existent among Arabs, Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews, Bedouin, Druze, etc., then all of that 7% illegitimacy is found among the secular Jews, which are probably only ~40% or less of births now. So the illegitimacy rate among the culturally dominant segment of Israel is approaching 20%, which is were the US was in the 80s or so. Not good.

    If you are white and can afford to live in London, you are not in the bastard demographic. You are in the bastard-supporting and bastardy-apologist demographic.

    Indians lean toward this group, and Mohammedans, for all their faults, still have their children in wedlock. Lots and lots and lots of them.

    Here again we assume the hostile, controlled media, but not women's suffrage, as a fixed, unchangeable given. This is absurd, of course, given that you can't do anything about women's suffrage without dealing with the media at which point, of course there would be no need to get rid of women's suffrage.

    Besides, this proposal is as likely as anything to end in disaster. For whatever reason, young, unmarried women in the market for a mate are a bulwark against wealthy, powerful male oligarchs who would just as soon get rid of their younger competition by sending them off to die in foreign wars, leaving the homeland weak and vulnerable to invasion.

    Ironically, the first known broad women's suffrage, in the West anyway, occurred in post-Revolutionary New Jersey, and allowed unmarried women to vote, but not their married sisters. The rub was that a property requirement was still in force, and married women by definition did not own property. Their husbands did.

    If this sounds nuts, rest assured that it all happened by accident. Nobody planned it this way.

    Sure--a particular clueless and manipulable cohort.

    But the real issue is to have the franchise restricted to those who are both productive and have a real stake in the success of the nation.

    The reform you could at least try to sell in the modern era would not be restricting women from the vote, but having men and women vote together as a couple, as parents.

    Something like:
    -- no vote for single people
    -- no vote for anyone not supporting themselves, on welfare, etc.
    -- when a man and woman get married the couple has one vote that they decide on and vote together
    -- when they have a child they recieve an additional vote, so two votes they vote together
    -- each additional child results in an additonal vote
    -- divorce ends voting rights
    -- child outside marriage--single motherhood--permanently ends voting rights

    Quibble over the details, but that's the sort of package--a productive, self-supporting husband and wife voting together either with their vote only coming with children, or more votes coming with more children--that confers the vote on people who are invested in the nation, and looks toward the future of the nation.

  9. I’m curious to know which way Steve and the iSteve crowd think the causation runs.

    Do naturally conservative women marry at a higher rate? Or does the state of matrimony force people to mature, confront the nature of human frailty, etc?

    • Replies: @Achmed E. Newman
    I'd say the latter, Captain, but just talking out my ass here. If there is data on voting patterns for women with children vs. without that'd enlighten us a bit. I personally thing that women don't realize much about how the world works (they don't need to) until they have some kids with futures to worry about.

    You could still say "well, it's the more conservative women that tend to have kids, so the causation is still the same way" I suppose. If you have enough data to do it, you'd have to get into breaking down this disparity by census tract to look at areas that are conservative or left-wing in general.

    It's interesting stuff, but per my next comment, should be a moot point ....
    , @anon
    Both ways, obviously. Left-wing women marry at (much?) lower rates, but marriage and especially children also make you more conservative in all kinds of ways - hormonally, experientially etc.

    Anecdotally, I know very left-wing women who became right-wing after having children (boys), over and above the age- and experience-related rightward drift. Also, from experience, having boys vs. girls probably has a stronger rightward effect (I think Steve may have written more about this effect?). I know a guy who was center-right before marriage, but after having three girls, was all for Hillary because 'role model'. Another guy with two girls has drifted even more leftward than he was before them.

    I think it is more that being under the guidance of a husband and having children causes women to change.

    It's what the kids these days call "Calvinball." The rules about how Kavanaugh should have behaved in the hearing change after the fact. There's quite literally no way in which he could have acted that would have helped him yesterday in their view.

    Had he met the calumnies with stoic resolve, it would have been evidence that privileged white males don't fear the justice of #Metoo. It would have been evidence that he lacked a judicial temperament because he couldn't "empathize" with victims of horrible crimes (committed by the judge himself, as judges always preside over trials in which they are also the defendants accused of horrible crimes).

    Had the Arizona prosecutor flayed this nut open wide during the hearing and brutally exposed her lies, evasions, and the incredible lack of facts of her story (when, where), the Republicans would have been lashed for "re-victimizing survivors." See also, "eleven old white men shouldn't question a survivor" and "these old white men are cowards for not giving the Democrats the sound bytes they desire."
  17. I wonder if there’s some self-selection going on here.

    Women more likely to get married and stay married are less likely to be obvious flakes like Blasey Ford.

    Women more likely to be single later in life are more likely to have been obvious flakes like Blasey Ford.

    Perhaps most importantly, married women are likely to view obvious flakes like Blasey Ford as a threat to their families, either by way of recovered groping memories/harassment stories which debilitate their wage-earner husbands, or by these hysterical types throwing themselves sexually at their husbands to create the drama and attention they crave.

    I think women are more cynical about other women than even supposed misogynist men are, and despite having a few months (two weeks at the least if you’re credulous and believe that the leak was unauthorized) to work on her and make her seem somewhat sane and normal, she nevertheless had tells that read like poisoned animals with brightly colored patterns telling you “DANGER DANGER – STAY AWAY.”

    Being white carries its own risk. Having professional degree, college diplomas, licenses, a professional reputation, clients, are all things that can be interfered with or taken away. Someone who devotes x number of years to become a lawyer, doctor, judge has had to invest an enormous amount of time, resources, and opportunity costs to get where they are.

    Blackness is more along the lines of "freedom means nothing left to lose". You can fail endlessly, flunk every test, and produce nothing of value but you still get promoted well above your talent. Sure, you don't have the financial resources or the prestige but you don't have to worry about losing something that took you 20, 30 40 years to build only to have it taken away by envious parasites; that and you dont have to get up at 5 every morning to shave and put on a suit.

    There are a large number of Caribbean and African blacks in the UK so the figures may not be quite as they seem for the native English. But the English underclass now has the social pathologies of the US black underclass according to Theodore Dalrymple, a prison doctor and writer.

    The Israeli figures are interesting in that 1/4 of the births to the unmarried are to widows and divorced women - but they don’t say if the children were conceived in marriage but born later. That could make a bit of difference in how you think of those births and may indicate only a greater resistance to abortion. But the study is not clear from the article.
    The Jewish birthdate is impressive however.

    A crying Brett Kavanaugh. This is what white male privilege looks like
    BY ERIKA D. SMITH
    [email protected]
     

    It’s what the kids these days call “Calvinball.” The rules about how Kavanaugh should have behaved in the hearing change after the fact. There’s quite literally no way in which he could have acted that would have helped him yesterday in their view.

    Had he met the calumnies with stoic resolve, it would have been evidence that privileged white males don’t fear the justice of #Metoo. It would have been evidence that he lacked a judicial temperament because he couldn’t “empathize” with victims of horrible crimes (committed by the judge himself, as judges always preside over trials in which they are also the defendants accused of horrible crimes).

    Had the Arizona prosecutor flayed this nut open wide during the hearing and brutally exposed her lies, evasions, and the incredible lack of facts of her story (when, where), the Republicans would have been lashed for “re-victimizing survivors.” See also, “eleven old white men shouldn’t question a survivor” and “these old white men are cowards for not giving the Democrats the sound bytes they desire.”

In a now-deleted tweet, Butera posted a video where she repeatedly mocks Ford’s voice during the professor’s testimony.

    “This is how I sound,” Butera imitates in a high pitch. “I know it’s a surprise to even me that I talk this way and I’m a doctor and a grown woman.

  26. More interesting than the absolute value of “the gap” is the degree to which the Kavanaugh kerfuffle will encourage various groups to get to the polls. Will it be more likely to incite #MeToo women or pro-Kavanaugh men to vote? The absolute value of the gap means little compared to who actually bothers to show up.

    I’m inclined to believe the pro-Kavanugh contingent will be more spurred by this than the #MeTooers. A lot of the #MeToo types are college students living away from home who aren’t even registered to vote where they’re living. Older and/or married men and women are just plain more conscientious.

    We see these gaps all the time where it seems like it’s inevitable that the Dem side would win, but sometimes enormous differences in voting turnout lead to the opposite result. My state has taken to mailing ballots to voters houses but turnout each election is still lower than ever.

    Kavanaugh has a lot of similarities with Tony Abbott, Australian P.M. from 2013-15, who was ditched by his Party due to his unpopularity with women voters.
    Abbott talked a good game before he was elected, then afterwards he reneged on all his promises.

    My opinion, if the Republicans don't ditch Kavanaugh, he'll drag them all down with him.

    As [General] Prats’ car was at a busy intersection in Las Condes, a then-quiet upper-class suburb of Santiago, a small red Renault car pulled up next to the general and two people (two men as he described them later) inside the car started laughing, mocking him and making obscene gestures. The general asked his driver to hand him his handgun. The minister opened his side window and, pointing at the red car, ordered the driver to stop. Since the other driver ignored him, the general waved his sidearm, demanding an apology at gunpoint. As none was forthcoming, he shot the red car in its left front fender.

    Both cars immediately stopped and the drivers came out. At that moment, the general discovered that the other driver was an upper-class housewife named Alejandrina Cox. She wore her hair cut short and that had led him to think she was a man. As he was remonstrating with Mrs. Cox, a crowd started to gather, many of whom sided with the woman. Soon the general was being insulted, and his official car was blocked from moving. A passing taxi driver rescued him from the street after his car was covered with graffiti and his tires were slashed.

    I’d say the latter, Captain, but just talking out my ass here. If there is data on voting patterns for women with children vs. without that’d enlighten us a bit. I personally thing that women don’t realize much about how the world works (they don’t need to) until they have some kids with futures to worry about.

    You could still say “well, it’s the more conservative women that tend to have kids, so the causation is still the same way” I suppose. If you have enough data to do it, you’d have to get into breaking down this disparity by census tract to look at areas that are conservative or left-wing in general.

    Both ways, obviously. Left-wing women marry at (much?) lower rates, but marriage and especially children also make you more conservative in all kinds of ways – hormonally, experientially etc.

    Anecdotally, I know very left-wing women who became right-wing after having children (boys), over and above the age- and experience-related rightward drift. Also, from experience, having boys vs. girls probably has a stronger rightward effect (I think Steve may have written more about this effect?). I know a guy who was center-right before marriage, but after having three girls, was all for Hillary because ‘role model’. Another guy with two girls has drifted even more leftward than he was before them.

    Some Israeli fertility policies:

    - state stipends for each birth
    - bonuses for families with over 6 births
    - government prizes for women with over 10 births (possibly discontinued)
    - state subsidized IVF which is essentially free to individuals

    The first three were introduced in the 40s-60s in order to directly incentivize Jewish population growth. Amazingly, Ultra-Orthodox and secular Jewish TFR were equal in the 60s (!) but after that the Ultra-Orthodox really started taking crazy advantage of these stipends, as did Bedouin.

    Secular Jewish and urban Arab fertility in Israel have trended downward in the direction of first world norms, but these stipends and free IDF no doubt help to keep them elevated.

    However, even though these government policies play a role, I think that the biggest factors are cultural:

    1) People in Israel know that they are in a demographic war - Arafat plainly declared it. He said they would 'conquer with their wombs,' or something like that.

    1a) Not only are they in a declared demographic war, but the consequences of losing it are obvious (genocide, not more burrito stands).

    2) Universal military service limits the amount to which men can be degraded in the culture and within the family. Even a secular, university educated professional urban female who tries to like Beyonce will know at heart that her husband, brother, father, and work colleagues have literally put their lives on the line for her. That just constrains misandry and therefore makes all women more desirous of marriage and a husband.

For whatever reason, young, unmarried women in the market for a mate are a bulwark against wealthy, powerful male oligarchs who would just as soon get rid of their younger competition by sending them off to die in foreign wars, leaving the homeland weak and vulnerable to invasion.

    According to this article, Bernie Sanders was wildly popular with young women, partially because Clinton was “associated with the Iraq War.

    Rescinding the right to vote from unmarried women looks like a good idea.

    Ironically, the first known broad women’s suffrage, in the West anyway, occurred in post-Revolutionary New Jersey, and allowed unmarried women to vote, but not their married sisters. The rub was that a property requirement was still in force, and married women by definition did not own property. Their husbands did.

    If this sounds nuts, rest assured that it all happened by accident. Nobody planned it this way.

    Read the subtext - K won't be "clean" until he confesses to his crimes. Until then, the Permanent Government will endlessly harass him with subpoenas, prosecutions, etc. until they get him on SOMETHING - lying to investigators, jaywalking, underage drinking, income tax evasion, anything. See what happened to the guys that Mueller targeted. This is how totalitarian systems work. Your guilt or innocence is irrelevant - until you "confess" the pressure is unrelenting. And of course once they have your confession (whether true or not) then your real punishment begins.

    The culture war is important, and it is great to see Lindsey Graham grow a pair. But the overall number one issue is immigration, because left unchecked, it makes the future bleak.

    Think of this analogy. The Allies landed at Normandy on June 6, 1944, Because the Germans could not repel them and send them back, the Allies continued to add men and material each day. By D +5 they had landed over 320K troops and their equipment. By D+24 they had landed over 800K men. And by Jul 4, four weeks after the invasion, they had landed 1 million. So that is averaging about 35K men per day just for that first month.

    A German officer in France in 1944, receiving reports that his men took out ten Sherman tanks that day, would probably not get too excited since so long as the Allies were landing some 35K new men per day, they would inevitably overwhelm the Germans.

    Well with immigration, legal and illegal, it is a similar thing. We can win battles like the Kavanugh nomination. And it does feel good. But so long as the other side is getting new recruits each and every day it is only a matter of time until we won't be able to win elections.

    Though we have cut down on refugees, we are still taking over 1 million LEGAL immigrants per year. That averages to about 2700 per day, 365 days per year. Now just because one is a legal immigrant doesn't make one a voting citizen. But it does put them in the pipeline. And we are not even talking about illegals and their anchor kids.

    The bottom line is we have to be able to address this issue, both legal and illegal, or else the democrats will keep landing thousands of ringers each and every day until we are overwhelmed. Though the wall does not address legal immigration, I think it is very important to change the mindset from the current open-border attitude. And given we can't get the GOP to budge on the wall, what makes us think they are going to budge on drastically reducing legal immigration?

    Enjoy the Judge K. win. I will. But keep your eye on the enemy troops that keep landing on our shores each day. Eventually they will be too large an army to defeat electorally.

    This would make some sort of sense if there was no marriage gap among men. As it stands, one might just as well ask if men change because they are “under the guidance” of a wife and have children.

    Married women with children have distinct interests that overlap with their husbands’ and dons’ interests. It’s really no more complicated that that.

Given that Trump isn't going to do anything significant on immigration, the future belongs to the globalists and left, especially with their already owning the media and educational systems.

    Yeah, it's fucced

    DEF CON hackers' dossier on US voting machine security is just as grim as feared: Good thing Congress has been so forceful in improving security

    Hackers probing America's electronic voting systems have painted an astonishing picture of the state of US election security, less than six weeks before the November midterms.

    The full 50-page report, released Thursday during a presentation in Washington DC, was put together by the organizers of the DEF CON hacking conference's Voting Village. It recaps the findings of that village, during which attendees uncovered ways resourceful miscreants could compromise electoral computer systems and change vote tallies.

    In short, the dossier outlines shortcomings in the electronic voting systems many US districts will use later this year for the midterm elections. The report focuses on vulnerabilities exploitable by scumbags with physical access to the hardware.

    "The problems outlined in this report are not simply election administration flaws that need to be fixed for efficiency’s sake, but rather serious risks to our critical infrastructure and thus national security," the report stated. "As our nation's security is the responsibility of the federal government, Congress needs to codify basic security standards like those developed by local election officials."

    ....

    "Due to a lack of security mechanisms in the smart card implementation, researchers in the Voting Village demonstrated that it is possible to create a voter activation card, which after activating the election machine to cast a ballot can automatically reset itself and allow a malicious voter to cast a second (or more) unauthorized ballots," the report read.

    "Alternatively, an attacker can use his or her mobile phone to reprogram the smart card wirelessly."

    Separately, a ballot-counting ES&S M650 machine raised a few eyebrows: it had poor physical security, and is intended to be networked to a county clerk's computer to report the results of scanning citizens' voting slips.

    Those numbers are super depressing...

    If I am understanding correctly, among indigenous British the illegitimacy rate must be over 50% (!), because Muslims, Sikhs, etc. don't tolerate that stuff, and minorities are probably 20% of births.

    Even the Israeli numbers are concerning. Since I have to assume that illegitimacy is basically non-existent among Arabs, Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews, Bedouin, Druze, etc., then all of that 7% illegitimacy is found among the secular Jews, which are probably only ~40% or less of births now. So the illegitimacy rate among the culturally dominant segment of Israel is approaching 20%, which is were the US was in the 80s or so. Not good.

    There are a large number of Caribbean and African blacks in the UK so the figures may not be quite as they seem for the native English. But the English underclass now has the social pathologies of the US black underclass according to Theodore Dalrymple, a prison doctor and writer.

    The Israeli figures are interesting in that 1/4 of the births to the unmarried are to widows and divorced women – but they don’t say if the children were conceived in marriage but born later. That could make a bit of difference in how you think of those births and may indicate only a greater resistance to abortion. But the study is not clear from the article.
    The Jewish birthdate is impressive however.

The polls sometimes indicate that about 25-40% of people can identify a Supreme Court Justice, but that seems way too high. Could your mailman name one? Any of the people who work at the supermarket? Cops? No way. Unless you live in the political bubble, take a look around today and try to guess how many of the people you see have anything more than a fleeting idea that this is happening.

    “How many are actually following this closely? 1%?”

    1% at most. In passing conversation I’ve alluded to the hearings, and nobody picks up what I’m dropping. And I’ve overheard no conversations about the topic.

    Low-info voters saw a couple minutes on the 10 o’clock news where a ropey-looking cat lady pretended to get choked up about something-or-other and an angry white guy genuinely got choked up about something-or-other, then there was this fruity-looking politician who yelled about something-or-other and some angry white chick frothing about something-or-other. Hurry up, I wanna know what the weekend weather is like!

But I think his chances just plummeted, especially since Trump seems to have cut him loose and told the R Senators to vote however they felt. Or maybe Trump knows that he doesn't have the votes and is trying to get out ahead of the issue so it can be spun as not being a defeat.

    I don't understand. Why is Matthew Yglesias assuming that Brett Kavanaugh hasn't come clean already? Does he know something most of us do not? Is he clairvoyant?

    Don't these 'intellectuals' realize how ridiculous they're being?

    Read the subtext – K won’t be “clean” until he confesses to his crimes. Until then, the Permanent Government will endlessly harass him with subpoenas, prosecutions, etc. until they get him on SOMETHING – lying to investigators, jaywalking, underage drinking, income tax evasion, anything. See what happened to the guys that Mueller targeted. This is how totalitarian systems work. Your guilt or innocence is irrelevant – until you “confess” the pressure is unrelenting. And of course once they have your confession (whether true or not) then your real punishment begins.

    Yes, married people are smarter--your empty snark doesn't alter that.

    Married people are smarter because they are in general older/wiser and in part becasue of selection (smarter, higher-quality people find marriage partners) but most importantly because they are involved in--mentally and materially--raising children, the one absolutely critical component upon with the future of a nation or a civilization depends.

    Sure they are plenty of leftists with high IQs. But they are people who have chosen to use their IQ to absorb and reguritate utopian fantasies--i.e. the "clever sillies". A good number of these "clever sillies" are employed directly in academic, bureaucratic, legal, media crank turning careers which are essentially parasitic--producing nothing of value, but eating really well. It's hardly a surprise, their ideology aligns completely with their self-interest. More loot for clever sillies like me!

    When it comes to the nature/nurture and huamn bio-diversity issues Steve tackles, they parrot this ridiculous ideology of leftist-creationism--evolution slammed to a halt 50,000 years ago when we left Africa. The smarter ones don't believe it ... but they parrot it. The sheer volumen of stupid shit--"you must believe the woman!", "hands up don't shoot!", "immigrants are who we are!", "Bruce Jenner is a woman!"--that leftists have to parrot now is beyond belief.

    So yeah ... married people are "smarter", i.e. "wiser". Raising children does that to you.

    In the midst of this swirling tempest of misogyny, both internalized and regular flavor, another voice emerged to minimize Ford’s heartbreaking testimony: Rachel Butera, the voice actress for General Leia in the upcoming animated television series Star Wars: Resistance. In a now-deleted tweet, Butera posted a video where she repeatedly mocks Ford’s voice during the professor’s testimony.

    “This is how I sound,” Butera imitates in a high pitch. “I know it’s a surprise to even me that I talk this way and I’m a doctor and a grown woman. I sound like I’m still back at that high school party. I can’t help it. I just have this kind of a voice, like a baby, even though I’m a doctor and I’m on this media circus political stage and I have kids myself. I don’t know why I speak with vocal fry. But you can listen to my testimony and hear that a grown woman sounds this way.”

    Watch out for women who are willing to let you feel smart:

    “Didn’t Miss Suellen tell you I had settled in Atlanta? Didn’t she tell you about my store?”

    Vaguely she had a memory of Suellen chattering about Frank and a store but she never paid much heed to anything Suellen said. It had been sufficient to know that Frank was alive and would some day take Suellen off her hands.

    “No, not a word,” she lied. “Have you a store? How smart you must be!”

    He looked a little hurt at hearing that Suellen had not published the news but brightened at the flattery.

    “Yes, I’ve got a store, and a pretty good one I think. Folks tell me I’m a born merchant.”

    He laughed pleasedly, the tittery cackling laugh which she always found so annoying.

    Conceited old fool, she thought.

    *****

    Interest had sprung up sharply in her at the talk of money. She veiled her eyes with thick bristly lashes and moved a little closer to him.

    “What does that mean, Mr. Kennedy?”

    He laughed and slapped the reins against the horse’s back.

    “I guess I’m boring you, talking about business, Miss Scarlett. A pretty little woman like you doesn’t need to know anything about business.”

    The old fool.

    “Oh, I know I’m a goose about business but I’m so interested! Please tell me all about it and you can explain what I don’t understand.”

    ******

    Her eyes went over him, her lids flickering. Certainly, he’s no beauty, she thought coolly, and he’s got very bad teeth and his breath smells bad and he’s old enough to be my father. Moreover, he’s nervous and timid and well meaning, and I don’t know of any more damning qualities a man can have. But at least, he’s a gentleman and I believe I could stand living with him better than with Rhett. Certainly I could manage him easier. At any rate, beggars can’t be choosers.

    DEF CON hackers’ dossier on US voting machine security is just as grim as feared: Good thing Congress has been so forceful in improving security

    Hackers probing America’s electronic voting systems have painted an astonishing picture of the state of US election security, less than six weeks before the November midterms.

    The full 50-page report, released Thursday during a presentation in Washington DC, was put together by the organizers of the DEF CON hacking conference’s Voting Village. It recaps the findings of that village, during which attendees uncovered ways resourceful miscreants could compromise electoral computer systems and change vote tallies.

    In short, the dossier outlines shortcomings in the electronic voting systems many US districts will use later this year for the midterm elections. The report focuses on vulnerabilities exploitable by scumbags with physical access to the hardware.

    “The problems outlined in this report are not simply election administration flaws that need to be fixed for efficiency’s sake, but rather serious risks to our critical infrastructure and thus national security,” the report stated. “As our nation’s security is the responsibility of the federal government, Congress needs to codify basic security standards like those developed by local election officials.”

    ….

    “Due to a lack of security mechanisms in the smart card implementation, researchers in the Voting Village demonstrated that it is possible to create a voter activation card, which after activating the election machine to cast a ballot can automatically reset itself and allow a malicious voter to cast a second (or more) unauthorized ballots,” the report read.

    “Alternatively, an attacker can use his or her mobile phone to reprogram the smart card wirelessly.”

    Separately, a ballot-counting ES&S M650 machine raised a few eyebrows: it had poor physical security, and is intended to be networked to a county clerk’s computer to report the results of scanning citizens’ voting slips.

    While people like Patrick Buchanan were fighting the culture war, you denounced them for not supporting our wars in the middle East. I specifically recall you writing that defending Israel was more important, and that if Israel fell so too would we.

    Now we find Europe, North America and Australia hurtling toward the shitter while Israel is thriving and has never been in a better position. Was it worth it?

    BTW stop blaming white women. Look in the mirror sometime.

    Nope I said we had to fight back. Not roll over and show our belly. Buchanan is a loser… he didn’t fight back against Candace Bergen and just stood there like a dumb cuck.

    At least Israel fights. Most Israelis men have plausibly killed some Arab. That automatically makes them desirable to their women.

    Buchanan is fine with bashing Israel but goes fetal when confronted by some aging Hollywood slut.

    We are discussing Pat Buchanan, not Dan Quayle.

    WTF are you talking about? Didn't you see Buchanan's speech at the 1992 RNC convention? Just watch it sometime.

    As for the national question, Buchanan has been railing against nonwhite immigration since at least 1992. He has written books in which he expresses that point and the displacement of European peoples. He basically created Trump's 2016 campaign of immigration and trade before Trump even thought about it.

    As for Israel bashing he called Capitol Hill 'Israeli occupied territory'. I don't see anything nonfactual in that. And besides WTF does Israel have do to with preserving the USA and Europe? That is your whole problem. You attacked Buchanan and his message on immigration, trade and unnecessary war because you felt he wasn't good for Israel. So what? Why is one's view of Israel even an issue to an American?

    Had we listened to Buchanan in 1992, we might very well have avoided where we are headed. But I guess you felt his views on Israel made him unfit for polite company.

    That's not the issue. The problem is that she left BF's credibility intact instead of shredding it. Dershowitz (no dummy) figured it out first - to shred the credibility of a rape accuser, you get defense counsel, not a prosecutor. They got Marcia Clark when they needed Johnnie Cochran. I don't think this was an accident.

Is his silence because he believes, or because he doesn't believe, or simply doesn't remember. Did he fall out with Kavanaugh at some point, either for personal or political reasons? Has Kavanaugh been on the phone with him behind the scenes asking him what he remembers, was he with someone else when this happened? Does he have any idea whose house this could have happened at?

    It's what the kids these days call "Calvinball." The rules about how Kavanaugh should have behaved in the hearing change after the fact. There's quite literally no way in which he could have acted that would have helped him yesterday in their view.

    Had he met the calumnies with stoic resolve, it would have been evidence that privileged white males don't fear the justice of #Metoo. It would have been evidence that he lacked a judicial temperament because he couldn't "empathize" with victims of horrible crimes (committed by the judge himself, as judges always preside over trials in which they are also the defendants accused of horrible crimes).

    Had the Arizona prosecutor flayed this nut open wide during the hearing and brutally exposed her lies, evasions, and the incredible lack of facts of her story (when, where), the Republicans would have been lashed for "re-victimizing survivors." See also, "eleven old white men shouldn't question a survivor" and "these old white men are cowards for not giving the Democrats the sound bytes they desire."

    As far as I can tell, the political philosophy of the left these days is:

    (Bloomberg) — The Reserve Bank of Australia may have solved the weak wage growth puzzle that’s beguiling economists the world over: the most successful firms just aren’t placing much priority on higher salaries.

    “High productivity firms would appear to be using most of their higher levels of productivity to reduce prices and increase profit margins rather than passing most of it on to their workforce in higher wages,” RBA economist Geoff Weir said in a discussion paper published Tuesday. “The productivity ‘laggards’ have limited scope to pay higher wages.”
    In his paper, ‘Wage Growth Puzzles and Technology,’ Weir says the uneven take-up of new technology by companies is seeing an increased disparity in productivity performance. He cites that as a key factor in the longer-run issue of why labor’s share of national income has been falling, and the shorter-term one of why nominal wages have been weaker than forecasts predicted.

    Yesterday was Fitness Day. Sorry, let me give that its proper title: #FitnessDay. The space bar is always the first casualty of a manufactured social media movement.

    As much as I hate MSMMs that’s Twitter, not Soros.

    The tweeting began before 6am, as healthy, responsible people announced to the world that they were going to the gym for their 6am workout, and might go for a run later. Public Health England published a timeless graphic, describing everything that counts as “moderate physical exercise”, including “active recreation”, also known as “moderate physical exercise”. By 7am, someone had posted a picture of themselves doing a complicated yoga posture on a log, and I was as angry as a bull. The problem wasn’t the hashtagging; the problem is with fitness itself.

    Uh …

    I have been writing a fitness column for a year and in this time I’ve digested very little about what exercise does for your body.

    She’s writer enough to do the play on words with”digest” but not proofreader enough to rethink including this line?

    I still have to Google what counts as maximum-intensity every time I feel moved to talk about it, which is all the time – but I know everything about what it does to your personality, and none of it is pretty. Start doing something new, and you can’t stop talking about it. As you read this, I’m probably prattling compulsively about my newfound love of hot yoga. Whoever I’m talking to, I can see they’re not interested, because it isn’t interesting.

    Warning, Sailer’s Second Law of Female Journalism is now moved to Orange: Contact Imminent.

    I often end with: “You should come! There’s a class this Friday!”, which is a way to justify having brought it up, and suddenly I’ve asked a distant acquaintance to spend 90 minutes with me in the intimate environs of a sweatbox, and they are wondering why, and I am wondering why, but really I know why: I didn’t want to stop gabbling.

    Imagine being her boyfriend and staring silently at a glass of orange juice while she says these exact words.

    It’s not really talking, though, is it? It’s boasting. Fitness boasters try to cover this up by featuring their dog in a selfie (“beautiful morning run with my buddy!”), or amplifying their own unworthiness in the face of an arduous task (#challenge), but the showing off couldn’t be plainer: “Here I am, improving myself, with willpower and grit, and because I was so great to start with, I’m shortly to become even better.” In normal life, we learn not to do this at roughly the age we learn not to bite people when we’re cross: when did you last blow your own trumpet about your prodigious intellect, or your sex life, or your eyelashes? It is the height of rudeness to burden another person with a remark to which there is no zesty reply (“This is my fourth Zumba class this week”), but courtesy vanished with modesty when you set your alarm that bit earlier.

    The white wine Resistance should take on Alejandrina Cox as their own Che Guevara. Who was she? Just the rich old gal who helped push Chile into crisis and dictatorship just by working her mouth:

    As [General] Prats' car was at a busy intersection in Las Condes, a then-quiet upper-class suburb of Santiago, a small red Renault car pulled up next to the general and two people (two men as he described them later) inside the car started laughing, mocking him and making obscene gestures. The general asked his driver to hand him his handgun. The minister opened his side window and, pointing at the red car, ordered the driver to stop. Since the other driver ignored him, the general waved his sidearm, demanding an apology at gunpoint. As none was forthcoming, he shot the red car in its left front fender.

    Both cars immediately stopped and the drivers came out. At that moment, the general discovered that the other driver was an upper-class housewife named Alejandrina Cox. She wore her hair cut short and that had led him to think she was a man. As he was remonstrating with Mrs. Cox, a crowd started to gather, many of whom sided with the woman. Soon the general was being insulted, and his official car was blocked from moving. A passing taxi driver rescued him from the street after his car was covered with graffiti and his tires were slashed.

    Some Israeli fertility policies:

    - state stipends for each birth
    - bonuses for families with over 6 births
    - government prizes for women with over 10 births (possibly discontinued)
    - state subsidized IVF which is essentially free to individuals

    The first three were introduced in the 40s-60s in order to directly incentivize Jewish population growth. Amazingly, Ultra-Orthodox and secular Jewish TFR were equal in the 60s (!) but after that the Ultra-Orthodox really started taking crazy advantage of these stipends, as did Bedouin.

    Secular Jewish and urban Arab fertility in Israel have trended downward in the direction of first world norms, but these stipends and free IDF no doubt help to keep them elevated.

    However, even though these government policies play a role, I think that the biggest factors are cultural:

    1) People in Israel know that they are in a demographic war - Arafat plainly declared it. He said they would 'conquer with their wombs,' or something like that.

    1a) Not only are they in a declared demographic war, but the consequences of losing it are obvious (genocide, not more burrito stands).

    2) Universal military service limits the amount to which men can be degraded in the culture and within the family. Even a secular, university educated professional urban female who tries to like Beyonce will know at heart that her husband, brother, father, and work colleagues have literally put their lives on the line for her. That just constrains misandry and therefore makes all women more desirous of marriage and a husband.

    49 [410] > as did Bedouin

    they had to disband the special “Beduin Desert Tracker Unit” recently, because most of the Beduin boys were asking to just be assigned to normal Hebrew-speaking units

    A normal Hebrew unit allows you to make rank quicker. Rank gives you more points towards getting hired in civil service. And mingling with Hebrew families allows you to “network” for a job post-discharge. “Network” for a job is important here.

    DEF CON hackers' dossier on US voting machine security is just as grim as feared: Good thing Congress has been so forceful in improving security

    Hackers probing America's electronic voting systems have painted an astonishing picture of the state of US election security, less than six weeks before the November midterms.

    The full 50-page report, released Thursday during a presentation in Washington DC, was put together by the organizers of the DEF CON hacking conference's Voting Village. It recaps the findings of that village, during which attendees uncovered ways resourceful miscreants could compromise electoral computer systems and change vote tallies.

    In short, the dossier outlines shortcomings in the electronic voting systems many US districts will use later this year for the midterm elections. The report focuses on vulnerabilities exploitable by scumbags with physical access to the hardware.

    "The problems outlined in this report are not simply election administration flaws that need to be fixed for efficiency’s sake, but rather serious risks to our critical infrastructure and thus national security," the report stated. "As our nation's security is the responsibility of the federal government, Congress needs to codify basic security standards like those developed by local election officials."

    ....

    "Due to a lack of security mechanisms in the smart card implementation, researchers in the Voting Village demonstrated that it is possible to create a voter activation card, which after activating the election machine to cast a ballot can automatically reset itself and allow a malicious voter to cast a second (or more) unauthorized ballots," the report read.

    "Alternatively, an attacker can use his or her mobile phone to reprogram the smart card wirelessly."

    Separately, a ballot-counting ES&S M650 machine raised a few eyebrows: it had poor physical security, and is intended to be networked to a county clerk's computer to report the results of scanning citizens' voting slips.

     

    Canada still uses paper ballots, and manages to count them pretty quickly. There is no physical audit trail for most electronic voting machines, which makes recounts impossible. Of course, that’s not a feature, not a flaw to the Ds.

Has Kavanaugh been on the phone with him behind the scenes asking him what he remembers, was he with someone else when this happened? Does he have any idea whose house this could have happened at?

    Recovering from alcoholism–what does that mean? Does he have alcohol related dementia or brain damage that would render him useless as a witness?

    Who knows?

  131. @El Dato

    Based on the evidence and information presented, Mitchell said she believed that there was not enough to criminally charge Kavanaugh - and likely not even enough to seek a search warrant.
     
    She can't charge him. Heavy petting was not illegal back then for one.

    Underage drinking was, and despite the fact that most of us did it (I certainly did), there are those pointing out that Kavanaugh turned 18 after the drinking age was raised to 21, so he wasn’t in the grandfathered cohort. Thus, either his math or his knowledge of the law is off, etc.

    I’m around Kavanuagh’s age and the drinking age was changing rapidly at that time. During my college years it went from 18 to 19 and then 21 but I drank all through college. I gave my younger sister my old ID so she could buy liquor when she went to college. Drinking wasn’t as stigmatized then - have you seen Animal House? - and I don’t blame Kavanaugh for not remembering clearly since it was never hard to get alcohol as a teen in the 80s. Picking through his high school hijinks is a ridiculous waste of time. Only moralistic Dems, who are much more depraved, pretend to care. Normal Americans, especially us early Gen Xers, look back on that time with fondness.

    Yeah… somehow I just can’t find myself getting worked up into a real fear of the party of trigger warnings, safe spaces, and p*ssy hats. It’s what comes after, when you ‘useful idiots’ are the first to be sent to the gulags that’s frightening. There’s a reason why you and your ‘allies’ fly into a hysterical fit whenever you’re presented with a hard look at facts and it’s because at the core, you have to deny reality. No matter what happens in the short term, in the long run, Leftism always fails, even when it’s run by steel-toed men with a spine. It would be nice if we as a nation could recognize what a colossal failure it always winds up being; 100 million deaths and many more suffering through starvation, terror and impoverishment across the 20th Century- it probably kinda sucked to be living under it. But I guess there will always be fools who like to shoot holes in the bottom of the boat they’re in, so we all get to suffer from your stupidity. So thanks for that.

    Rescinding the right to vote from unmarried women looks like a good idea.

    Rescinding the right to vote from unmarried women looks like a good idea.

    Sure–a particular clueless and manipulable cohort.

    But the real issue is to have the franchise restricted to those who are both productive and have a real stake in the success of the nation.

    The reform you could at least try to sell in the modern era would not be restricting women from the vote, but having men and women vote together as a couple, as parents.

    Something like:
    — no vote for single people
    — no vote for anyone not supporting themselves, on welfare, etc.
    — when a man and woman get married the couple has one vote that they decide on and vote together
    — when they have a child they recieve an additional vote, so two votes they vote together
    — each additional child results in an additonal vote
    — divorce ends voting rights
    — child outside marriage–single motherhood–permanently ends voting rights

    Quibble over the details, but that’s the sort of package–a productive, self-supporting husband and wife voting together either with their vote only coming with children, or more votes coming with more children–that confers the vote on people who are invested in the nation, and looks toward the future of the nation.

    Even better than voting abolish the tax deduction for charitable donations. The non profit grant hustling sector is almost as big as the private sector and getting bigger as the private sector moved overseas.

    Since Johnson started those grants they’ve been used to fund many subversive activities. They all sound fine. But they’re subversive.thise NGOs also give subversives a salary, an office phones computers everything they need

    There are usually 2 layers. Outwardly it’s some do gooder garbage, like helping black kids get into college.

    Read the subtext - K won't be "clean" until he confesses to his crimes. Until then, the Permanent Government will endlessly harass him with subpoenas, prosecutions, etc. until they get him on SOMETHING - lying to investigators, jaywalking, underage drinking, income tax evasion, anything. See what happened to the guys that Mueller targeted. This is how totalitarian systems work. Your guilt or innocence is irrelevant - until you "confess" the pressure is unrelenting. And of course once they have your confession (whether true or not) then your real punishment begins.

    Unfortunately, your comment is depressingly all too true.

  136. Kavanaugh turned 18 after the drinking age was raised to 21, so he wasn’t in the grandfathered cohort. Thus, either his math or his knowledge of the law is off, etc.

    If that is the case, it doesn’t say much for his memory. Of course at the age of 17 he may have had little interest in legal issues, but then again, this was a young man who kept a calendar of his social engagements, and he definitely was extremely interested in beer.

    I can remember perfectly well that in England homosexuality was decriminalised the week after my 16th birthday in 1967, but both participants (I don’t think orgies were really considered at that time) had to be over the age of 21. Many years later the age of homo consent was reduced to 18, whereas for female heteros the age of consent had been 16 since it was raised from 13 in 1885 due to various scandals related to teen prostitution and young English girls being hired to work in continental European brothels. The age of consent remains 18 if the man is the woman’s teacher.

    I remember this perfectly well and I am neither a lawyer, nor a homosexual, nor ever likely to become either at this point in my life. However, I did regularly read the Daily Mail at the age of 16. Mostly for the football, horse racing form, and the crossword, you understand, but salacious material was always welcome.

    Some Israeli fertility policies:

    - state stipends for each birth
    - bonuses for families with over 6 births
    - government prizes for women with over 10 births (possibly discontinued)
    - state subsidized IVF which is essentially free to individuals

    The first three were introduced in the 40s-60s in order to directly incentivize Jewish population growth. Amazingly, Ultra-Orthodox and secular Jewish TFR were equal in the 60s (!) but after that the Ultra-Orthodox really started taking crazy advantage of these stipends, as did Bedouin.

    Secular Jewish and urban Arab fertility in Israel have trended downward in the direction of first world norms, but these stipends and free IDF no doubt help to keep them elevated.

    However, even though these government policies play a role, I think that the biggest factors are cultural:

    1) People in Israel know that they are in a demographic war - Arafat plainly declared it. He said they would 'conquer with their wombs,' or something like that.

    1a) Not only are they in a declared demographic war, but the consequences of losing it are obvious (genocide, not more burrito stands).

    2) Universal military service limits the amount to which men can be degraded in the culture and within the family. Even a secular, university educated professional urban female who tries to like Beyonce will know at heart that her husband, brother, father, and work colleagues have literally put their lives on the line for her. That just constrains misandry and therefore makes all women more desirous of marriage and a husband.

    I’d be surprised if the bastard rate is much higher with American Jews. I recall reading about Bloomberg’s daughter having a bastard but it’s just not something you hear a lot with Jews. I get the feeling that the good chunk of their out of wedlock births are due to older single ladies giving up on finding a partner and just going to a sperm bank. As opposed to sleeping around and getting knocked up like Anglos.

    The culture war and Whites standing up and recognizing the dems for what they are is 100x more important than the wall.
     
    The culture war is important, and it is great to see Lindsey Graham grow a pair. But the overall number one issue is immigration, because left unchecked, it makes the future bleak.

    Think of this analogy. The Allies landed at Normandy on June 6, 1944, Because the Germans could not repel them and send them back, the Allies continued to add men and material each day. By D +5 they had landed over 320K troops and their equipment. By D+24 they had landed over 800K men. And by Jul 4, four weeks after the invasion, they had landed 1 million. So that is averaging about 35K men per day just for that first month.

    A German officer in France in 1944, receiving reports that his men took out ten Sherman tanks that day, would probably not get too excited since so long as the Allies were landing some 35K new men per day, they would inevitably overwhelm the Germans.

    Well with immigration, legal and illegal, it is a similar thing. We can win battles like the Kavanugh nomination. And it does feel good. But so long as the other side is getting new recruits each and every day it is only a matter of time until we won't be able to win elections.

    Though we have cut down on refugees, we are still taking over 1 million LEGAL immigrants per year. That averages to about 2700 per day, 365 days per year. Now just because one is a legal immigrant doesn't make one a voting citizen. But it does put them in the pipeline. And we are not even talking about illegals and their anchor kids.

    The bottom line is we have to be able to address this issue, both legal and illegal, or else the democrats will keep landing thousands of ringers each and every day until we are overwhelmed. Though the wall does not address legal immigration, I think it is very important to change the mindset from the current open-border attitude. And given we can't get the GOP to budge on the wall, what makes us think they are going to budge on drastically reducing legal immigration?

    Enjoy the Judge K. win. I will. But keep your eye on the enemy troops that keep landing on our shores each day. Eventually they will be too large an army to defeat electorally.

    Agree that everything besides immigration is a sideshow. Given that Trump isn’t going to do anything significant on immigration, the future belongs to the globalists and left, especially with their already owning the media and educational systems. Trump would need to build the wall, end H1B, deport all legal immigrants who aren’t citizens, deport all illegals, put legal immigration on hold. We will be lucky to get a wall. Forget the rest.

    We have no choice but to share a society. They won the culture war and have immigration on their side. The future is theirs. If we try to isolate ourselves they will use government programs to infest o ur communities with vibrants. Even sites like Unz will eventually not be allowed to continue.

    Am I the only one who has been changed by this?

    The suspension of logic and decency required to let this happen has left me reeling.

    I am even beginning to question if women should have the vote.

    I used to see the other side as ideological foes. I now deep-down see them as cockroaches. I wouldn't hesitate to tread on them.

    That was dirty in so many ways, and a trip to the NYT or the Guardian is like a trip to Stalinist Russia.

    If you’ve seen Point of Order, you know how bitter the HUAC hearings were. The same could be said of Watergate and Iran/Contra. However, they were adults. Nasty adults, in some cases, but still adults.

    The participants here are an overgrown Student Council. The grown-ups have given them more power than they have learned to handle responsibly. The glee of sitting in judgment, particularly on those with the authority to judge them, has made them as drunk. More drunk than any teen at any kegger I’ve ever heard of, and I’ve heard some legends.

    I still read the DM, mostly because they reveal facts that our US news sources won't, or without as much delay. (Should've thought The Sun was better for salacious.)

    As for drinking, there was a cohort in Philly who'd drive over the bridge to NJ to drink legally. Of course by the time they were satisfied, they couldn't drive legally, but that's another story.

    I still read the DM, mostly because they reveal facts that our US news sources won’t, or without as much delay. (Should’ve thought The Sun was better for salacious.)

    Due to the fact that The Sun had a bare-breasted girl on page 3 every day, which was of great educational value, my school library did not subscribe to it.

    The DM today is pretty much the same as it was 50 years ago when I started following current affairs.

    A mixture of complete tosh and fairly interesting middle brow journalism that covers the main stories of the day, and gives you a good half hours read, plus more if you want the crossword. Good feature articles, good sports section. Plenty of jingoism. Ideal for commuters on a train journey, and it used to be good crumpled up for starting coal fires in the English winter, a function that is now passe due to clean air regs, etc.

    When I visited the UK in the early aughties, they still had page 3 girls, and a professionally-dressed man was reading the Sun quite openly on the Tube.

    The sense of scandal was very different from the US one: showing anything after 9 or 10 o'clock at night, a morning show called The Big Breakfast that candidly discussed teen sex, but sheer horror when one of Simon Cowell's competitions appeared to be rigged or poor railway statistics were deliberately released after a member of the royal family had died so they'd be ignored on the pages in the middle. In the US, nobody would raise an eyebrow at evidence of corruption, but just hint at prurience....

    We are discussing Pat Buchanan, not Dan Quayle.

    Buchanan is fine with bashing Israel but goes fetal when confronted by some aging Hollywood slut.

    WTF are you talking about? Didn’t you see Buchanan’s speech at the 1992 RNC convention? Just watch it sometime.

    As for the national question, Buchanan has been railing against nonwhite immigration since at least 1992. He has written books in which he expresses that point and the displacement of European peoples. He basically created Trump’s 2016 campaign of immigration and trade before Trump even thought about it.

    As for Israel bashing he called Capitol Hill ‘Israeli occupied territory’. I don’t see anything nonfactual in that. And besides WTF does Israel have do to with preserving the USA and Europe? That is your whole problem. You attacked Buchanan and his message on immigration, trade and unnecessary war because you felt he wasn’t good for Israel. So what? Why is one’s view of Israel even an issue to an American?

    Had we listened to Buchanan in 1992, we might very well have avoided where we are headed. But I guess you felt his views on Israel made him unfit for polite company.

    This is how you can tell if someone is /ourjew/ or a malicious saboteur. Real Jewish allies don't attempt to sow division between White men and women. As for the others, out of one side of their mouths, they'll say criticism of 15 million Jews is bad optics. Out of the other side, they'll demonize half a billion White women and claim they're "just joking" when they endorse rape and femicide.

    The Starship Troopers solution might be a little better: percentage children born to unmarried mothers UK: 48% vs. Israel 6.9%. Which one of these countries has compulsory service again? We wouldn't even need the compulsory part to make society more conservative/traditional.

    She hit the nail on the head. A crying Kavanaugh- That is the reality of white privilege. No benefits and dishonest blame and persecution from lying minorities trying to ruin your life.

    Being white carries its own risk. Having professional degree, college diplomas, licenses, a professional reputation, clients, are all things that can be interfered with or taken away. Someone who devotes x number of years to become a lawyer, doctor, judge has had to invest an enormous amount of time, resources, and opportunity costs to get where they are.

    Blackness is more along the lines of “freedom means nothing left to lose”. You can fail endlessly, flunk every test, and produce nothing of value but you still get promoted well above your talent. Sure, you don’t have the financial resources or the prestige but you don’t have to worry about losing something that took you 20, 30 40 years to build only to have it taken away by envious parasites; that and you dont have to get up at 5 every morning to shave and put on a suit.

    I use my brother as an everyman on these kind of issues and he has absolutely no clue that any of this is happening. The polls sometimes indicate that about 25-40% of people can identify a Supreme Court Justice, but that seems way too high. Could your mailman name one? Any of the people who work at the supermarket? Cops? No way. Unless you live in the political bubble, take a look around today and try to guess how many of the people you see have anything more than a fleeting idea that this is happening.

    You can’t turn on a TV without seeing it, and there are TVs everywhere in America. This is the ultimate made for TV drama since everyone can have an opinion on it (everyone had uncomfortable makeouts while they were young). I don’t know what you mean by “following it closely,” but I would guess the number who have formed an opinion about it is close 70%.

    Rescinding the right to vote from unmarried women looks like a good idea.
     
    Sure--a particular clueless and manipulable cohort.

    But the real issue is to have the franchise restricted to those who are both productive and have a real stake in the success of the nation.

    The reform you could at least try to sell in the modern era would not be restricting women from the vote, but having men and women vote together as a couple, as parents.

    Something like:
    -- no vote for single people
    -- no vote for anyone not supporting themselves, on welfare, etc.
    -- when a man and woman get married the couple has one vote that they decide on and vote together
    -- when they have a child they recieve an additional vote, so two votes they vote together
    -- each additional child results in an additonal vote
    -- divorce ends voting rights
    -- child outside marriage--single motherhood--permanently ends voting rights

    Quibble over the details, but that's the sort of package--a productive, self-supporting husband and wife voting together either with their vote only coming with children, or more votes coming with more children--that confers the vote on people who are invested in the nation, and looks toward the future of the nation.

    – no vote for anyone not supporting themselves, on welfare, etc.

    Since every news channel is blasting the hearing hourly I think any who watches TV is aware of the hearing.

    I saw the front page of local newspaper today. Entire page was about the hearings with 3 inch letters.

    Let’s speculate about why the minions of Satan hate Kavanaugh so much. Maybe because he worked with Starr on Clinton’s impeachment?

    The state of Maryland abolished statute of limitations on sex assault a few years ago. Now the state of Maryland and Montgomery County sheriff are opening an investigation into anything and everything Kavanaugh ever did.

    He can be destroyed by this. If there’s an ambitious Montgomery county DA like the POS that tried to prosecute the Duke Lacrosse team Kavanaugh will be destroyed by legal bills. And his kids are young.

    The Indians were a worthy race of warriors and fought hard and well.
    But we had a continent to conquer and they were in the way.

    Up until 1914 wars strengthened those who engaged in them. Swords were sharpened in combat; brains too.

    The four years until 1918 destroyed the best of our race, on both sides. And then the weaker side (from every civilisational point of view) came out on top. The Europe of history was no more.

    The only nations to respond in a manly, restorative and confident way were the Axis powers and their allies.

    The others, France and Great Britain in particular, loathed and feared this rebirth (look who really ran their affairs) and successfully brought it down, with the naive and enthusiastic participation of the still white United Sates.

    Once that had been accomplished, the further step in the process could begin: the death of European man everywhere.

    -- when a man and woman get married the couple has one vote that they decide on and vote together
    -- when they have a child they recieve an additional vote, so two votes they vote together
    -- each additional child results in an additonal vote
    -- divorce ends voting rights
    -- child outside marriage--single motherhood--permanently ends voting rights

    Quibble over the details, but that's the sort of package--a productive, self-supporting husband and wife voting together either with their vote only coming with children, or more votes coming with more children--that confers the vote on people who are invested in the nation, and looks toward the future of the nation.

    I very much like the idea of married parents getting a vote for each child.

    Even better than voting abolish the tax deduction for charitable donations. The non profit grant hustling sector is almost as big as the private sector and getting bigger as the private sector moved overseas.

    Since Johnson started those grants they’ve been used to fund many subversive activities. They all sound fine. But they’re subversive.thise NGOs also give subversives a salary, an office phones computers everything they need

    There are usually 2 layers. Outwardly it’s some do gooder garbage, like helping black kids get into college.
    The other layer is organizing BLM riots

    The NGOs really should be destroyed.

    Your ideas are good but voting is a choice between bad and bad.

    More interesting than the absolute value of "the gap" is the degree to which the Kavanaugh kerfuffle will encourage various groups to get to the polls. Will it be more likely to incite #MeToo women or pro-Kavanaugh men to vote? The absolute value of the gap means little compared to who actually bothers to show up.

    I'm inclined to believe the pro-Kavanugh contingent will be more spurred by this than the #MeTooers. A lot of the #MeToo types are college students living away from home who aren't even registered to vote where they're living. Older and/or married men and women are just plain more conscientious.

    We see these gaps all the time where it seems like it's inevitable that the Dem side would win, but sometimes enormous differences in voting turnout lead to the opposite result. My state has taken to mailing ballots to voters houses but turnout each election is still lower than ever.

    Kavanaugh has a lot of similarities with Tony Abbott, Australian P.M. from 2013-15, who was ditched by his Party due to his unpopularity with women voters.
    Abbott talked a good game before he was elected, then afterwards he reneged on all his promises.

    My opinion, if the Republicans don’t ditch Kavanaugh, he’ll drag them all down with him.
    Nothing to do with the hokey allegations, he just comes across as a bloke who will exploit his family’s privacy to get himself off the hook.

    I like that they excluded the I Don't Knows, but aren't we really talking about a tiny subset of the population?

    How many people in this country know who Judge Kavanaugh is? 5%? 10%?

    How many are actually following this closely? 1%?

    I use my brother as an everyman on these kind of issues and he has absolutely no clue that any of this is happening. The polls sometimes indicate that about 25-40% of people can identify a Supreme Court Justice, but that seems way too high. Could your mailman name one? Any of the people who work at the supermarket? Cops? No way. Unless you live in the political bubble, take a look around today and try to guess how many of the people you see have anything more than a fleeting idea that this is happening.

    Gold box for you, although it was AE, NOT the poll, who excluded the “Don’t Knows”, and he does it for partisan purposes. To me, the actual poll numbers say more about the pulse of the nation–31% oppose, 30% support, and 38% don’t know. Also important to note is that the poll does not offer insight as to the political affiliation of the respondents.

    Nope I said we had to fight back. Not roll over and show our belly. Buchanan is a loser… he didn’t fight back against Candace Bergen and just stood there like a dumb cuck.
     
    We are discussing Pat Buchanan, not Dan Quayle.

    Buchanan is fine with bashing Israel but goes fetal when confronted by some aging Hollywood slut.
     
    WTF are you talking about? Didn't you see Buchanan's speech at the 1992 RNC convention? Just watch it sometime.

    As for the national question, Buchanan has been railing against nonwhite immigration since at least 1992. He has written books in which he expresses that point and the displacement of European peoples. He basically created Trump's 2016 campaign of immigration and trade before Trump even thought about it.

    As for Israel bashing he called Capitol Hill 'Israeli occupied territory'. I don't see anything nonfactual in that. And besides WTF does Israel have do to with preserving the USA and Europe? That is your whole problem. You attacked Buchanan and his message on immigration, trade and unnecessary war because you felt he wasn't good for Israel. So what? Why is one's view of Israel even an issue to an American?

    Had we listened to Buchanan in 1992, we might very well have avoided where we are headed. But I guess you felt his views on Israel made him unfit for polite company.

    "Rescinding the right to vote from unmarried women looks like a good idea."

    The Starship Troopers solution might be a little better: percentage children born to unmarried mothers UK: 48% vs. Israel 6.9%. Which one of these countries has compulsory service again? We wouldn't even need the compulsory part to make society more conservative/traditional.

    Here in the US single moms often join the Service. When I went in in ’89 it was illegal, but some of them gave up the children for adoption (probably by Grandma) to join. A bunch of them were called out of formation in the Spring of ’90 to discuss this.

    Fr. Lasance’s classic guide The Catholic Girl points out that if a woman is not called to religious life or marriage, a vocation to live single in the world may be both virtuous and beneficial to others. He gives the example of a woman who became almost a second mother to her nieces and nephews when the family was in trouble. She certainly came off better than the women who currently marry for all the wrong reasons (when they marry at all), as they do in Hollywood.

    Middleton's parents suggested to her at a young age that it would be a good idea if she married Prince William, so they sent her to an expensive boarding school called Marlborough College, where she would get used to hobnobbing with gentry, and then when it became apparent that Prince William would go to the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, she obtained an undergraduate place at the same institution majoring in History of Art, a favorite course of study for the Royal Family, who are the owners of a large and historic art collection consisting mainly of portraits of family members and hangers on.

    After a long courtship, she eventually nailed her man, being willing to provide the legendary heir and a spare as per contract. In fact she has embraced her role with such enthusiasm that in spite of severe problems with vomiting in pregnancy, she has now delivered what poker players called a set consisting of two knaves and a princess.

    The Republicans are reaping years of being represented by a fake political party that failed to effectively advocate for their voters. The result is that they are losing the racial cultural battles and right along with that the sexual battles.

    The reality is that there are no organizations that advocate for men. The government does not either.
    I literally cannot think of anything a single female politician has ever done explicitly for men, and quite frankly not much from male politicians either.

    If you want to make the Democrats pay, start organizing men. All it would take is money. It would act as a counter balance to women's unopposed political lobbying and create a media environment where no one could claim that women never lie and there is no such thing as false allegations.

    To be fair, there are still some people who will not marry without love. So if a fiance(e) died or the only one they really want does not return their interest, or is what used to be called "unsuitable" for some reason, they will not insult someone else or themselves by "settling."

    Fr. Lasance's classic guide The Catholic Girl points out that if a woman is not called to religious life or marriage, a vocation to live single in the world may be both virtuous and beneficial to others. He gives the example of a woman who became almost a second mother to her nieces and nephews when the family was in trouble. She certainly came off better than the women who currently marry for all the wrong reasons (when they marry at all), as they do in Hollywood.

    What IS this thing called love?

    Artie Shaw was married 6 times, so it looks like he never solved the conundrum. His wives included Lana Turner and Ava Gardner, so I guess he must have had a type.

    Put yourself in K's position - does this sound like a ringing endorsement or like Trump just cut him loose so as not to drag the ship down?

    This is K's problem now - the Republicans need women voters more than they need him. His policy positions were not enough to sink him but the trumped up #MeToo charges were (K's nomination is not dead yet but he ain't doin' so hot either).

    If the Democrats get away with this, mark the country as done. This time I don’t think there will be forgiveness. I certainly won’t forgive. A lot of people think like I do; this time there is real hatred of the other side. It is clear to me if the Left ever took real power in this country they would be lining people up against a wall.

    The Republicans are reaping years of being represented by a fake political party that failed to effectively advocate for their voters. The result is that they are losing the racial cultural battles and right along with that the sexual battles.

    The reality is that there are no organizations that advocate for men. The government does not either.
    I literally cannot think of anything a single female politician has ever done explicitly for men, and quite frankly not much from male politicians either.

    If you want to make the Democrats pay, start organizing men. All it would take is money. It would act as a counter balance to women’s unopposed political lobbying and create a media environment where no one could claim that women never lie and there is no such thing as false allegations.

    Wow, married people are so smart! Donald Trump AND Brett Kavanaugh. What next, Barney the Dinosaur, if he proves himself sufficiently racist? ("We had to do it, our unemployment rate was a catastrophic 3.9!" - Wisconsin on election day 2016).

    Wow, married people are so smart!

    Yes, married people are smarter–your empty snark doesn’t alter that.

    Married people are smarter because they are in general older/wiser and in part becasue of selection (smarter, higher-quality people find marriage partners) but most importantly because they are involved in–mentally and materially–raising children, the one absolutely critical component upon with the future of a nation or a civilization depends.

    Sure they are plenty of leftists with high IQs. But they are people who have chosen to use their IQ to absorb and reguritate utopian fantasies–i.e. the “clever sillies”. A good number of these “clever sillies” are employed directly in academic, bureaucratic, legal, media crank turning careers which are essentially parasitic–producing nothing of value, but eating really well. It’s hardly a surprise, their ideology aligns completely with their self-interest. More loot for clever sillies like me!

    When it comes to the nature/nurture and huamn bio-diversity issues Steve tackles, they parrot this ridiculous ideology of leftist-creationism–evolution slammed to a halt 50,000 years ago when we left Africa. The smarter ones don’t believe it … but they parrot it. The sheer volumen of stupid shit–“you must believe the woman!”, “hands up don’t shoot!”, “immigrants are who we are!”, “Bruce Jenner is a woman!”–that leftists have to parrot now is beyond belief.

    So yeah … married people are “smarter”, i.e. “wiser”. Raising children does that to you.

    Watch out for women who are willing to let you feel smart:

    “Didn’t Miss Suellen tell you I had settled in Atlanta? Didn’t she tell you about my store?”

    Vaguely she had a memory of Suellen chattering about Frank and a store but she never paid much heed to anything Suellen said. It had been sufficient to know that Frank was alive and would some day take Suellen off her hands.

    “No, not a word,” she lied. “Have you a store? How smart you must be!”

    He looked a little hurt at hearing that Suellen had not published the news but brightened at the flattery.

    “Yes, I’ve got a store, and a pretty good one I think. Folks tell me I’m a born merchant.”

    He laughed pleasedly, the tittery cackling laugh which she always found so annoying.

    Conceited old fool, she thought.

    *****

    Interest had sprung up sharply in her at the talk of money. She veiled her eyes with thick bristly lashes and moved a little closer to him.

    “What does that mean, Mr. Kennedy?”

    He laughed and slapped the reins against the horse’s back.

    “I guess I’m boring you, talking about business, Miss Scarlett. A pretty little woman like you doesn’t need to know anything about business.”

    The old fool.

    “Oh, I know I’m a goose about business but I’m so interested! Please tell me all about it and you can explain what I don’t understand.”

    ******

    Her eyes went over him, her lids flickering. Certainly, he’s no beauty, she thought coolly, and he’s got very bad teeth and his breath smells bad and he’s old enough to be my father. Moreover, he’s nervous and timid and well meaning, and I don’t know of any more damning qualities a man can have. But at least, he’s a gentleman and I believe I could stand living with him better than with Rhett. Certainly I could manage him easier. At any rate, beggars can’t be choosers.

     

    Thank you 🙂 Speaking of women in the South during the Civil War, I just watched Clint Eastwood in ‘The Beguiled’ (1971). Really good. I believe it was remade with Nicole Kidman last year but I wanted to see the original cuz Clint Eastwood.

    There may be some small % of women who fit your description, but there are millions of women who are devoted to no greater cause than themselves (and their cats). Or if they are devoted to any cause, it is a destructive one.

    Since such women are usually childless, their genes are going to disappear but the problem is that these are often high IQ women, albeit misguided (and the women who ARE having babies are not) so the trend is dysgenic. There is always going to be a small % of women who don't reproduce (historically far lower than men) but our present age is one of the first where the richest, smartest women are the ones not reproducing the most. I don't know how we fix our society back to the point where it is eugenic and the smartest women are the ones having the most kids, but if we don't then we aren't going to have that future with flying cars and stuff.

    Freakonomics. Get some billionaire philanthropist to set up a foundation that will offer full college scholarships to any woman who can pass an IQ test and provide proof of having delivered 2 live children.

    After a while intelligent women would start to plan their lives around these scholarships.

    The duchess of Cambridge, and putative future queen of England was born in the same hospital as my sister, but after that their pathways diverged.

    Middleton’s parents suggested to her at a young age that it would be a good idea if she married Prince William, so they sent her to an expensive boarding school called Marlborough College, where she would get used to hobnobbing with gentry, and then when it became apparent that Prince William would go to the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, she obtained an undergraduate place at the same institution majoring in History of Art, a favorite course of study for the Royal Family, who are the owners of a large and historic art collection consisting mainly of portraits of family members and hangers on.

    After a long courtship, she eventually nailed her man, being willing to provide the legendary heir and a spare as per contract. In fact she has embraced her role with such enthusiasm that in spite of severe problems with vomiting in pregnancy, she has now delivered what poker players called a set consisting of two knaves and a princess.

    They just need to be incentivized.

    Yeah... somehow I just can’t find myself getting worked up into a real fear of the party of trigger warnings, safe spaces, and p*ssy hats. It’s what comes after, when you ‘useful idiots’ are the first to be sent to the gulags that’s frightening. There’s a reason why you and your ‘allies’ fly into a hysterical fit whenever you’re presented with a hard look at facts and it’s because at the core, you have to deny reality. No matter what happens in the short term, in the long run, Leftism always fails, even when it’s run by steel-toed men with a spine. It would be nice if we as a nation could recognize what a colossal failure it always winds up being; 100 million deaths and many more suffering through starvation, terror and impoverishment across the 20th Century- it probably kinda sucked to be living under it. But I guess there will always be fools who like to shoot holes in the bottom of the boat they’re in, so we all get to suffer from your stupidity. So thanks for that. It may take a village to raise a child but it takes resentment, naivety, and willful delusion for him to become a leftist after the 20th Century.

    Well said.

    Lost schmost. I agree except: if I were an Amerind and it was 1820 would you have me skulk weakly back into Territory or put up a fight?

    The Indians were a worthy race of warriors and fought hard and well.
    But we had a continent to conquer and they were in the way.

    Up until 1914 wars strengthened those who engaged in them. Swords were sharpened in combat; brains too.

    The four years until 1918 destroyed the best of our race, on both sides. And then the weaker side (from every civilisational point of view) came out on top. The Europe of history was no more.

    The only nations to respond in a manly, restorative and confident way were the Axis powers and their allies.

    The others, France and Great Britain in particular, loathed and feared this rebirth (look who really ran their affairs) and successfully brought it down, with the naive and enthusiastic participation of the still white United Sates.

    Once that had been accomplished, the further step in the process could begin: the death of European man everywhere.

    Look at the USA today and tell me they have not come perilously close to complete success.

Unless she saved her ’80s bathing suit like he saved his ’80s calendars, he left incriminating finger prints on the straps just like Bill left that incriminating DNA on the blue dress (and she never washed it), or she has a flashback when hearing “Physical,” and suddenly remembers the building number, the color of the bedspread, and the reason she’s hated Olivia Newton-John all these years, there is nothing that will prove or disprove any of this!
