From Affirmative Right:

Next here are Biden’s existing appointments and nominees for these 21 positions and their ethnicities:

Secretary of State (Antony Blinken – WHITE-JEWISH)
Secretary of the Treasury (Janet Yellen – WHITE-JEWISH)
Secretary of Defense (Lloyd Austin – BLACK)
Attorney General (Merrick Garland – WHITE-JEWISH)
Secretary of the Interior (Deb Haaland – MIXED RACE (Red Indian + Norwegian))
Secretary of Agriculture (Tom Vilsack – WHITE-CATHOLIC)

Vilsack was born in a Roman Catholic orphanage in Pittsburgh so he has deep roots in farming.

Secretary of Commerce (Gina Raimondo – WHITE-CATHOLIC (Italian American))
Secretary of Labor (Marty Walsh – WHITE-CATHOLIC (Irish American))
Secretary of Health and Human Services (Xavier Becerra – HISPANIC (Mexican American))
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (Marcia Fudge – BLACK)
Secretary of Transportation (Pete Buttigieg – WHITE-CATHOLIC)

Buttigieg’s father was a Marxist Catholic from Arab-speaking Malta who taught at Notre Dame. His mother, Anne Montgomery, might have been Protestant.

Secretary of Energy (Jennifer Granholm – WHITE-CATHOLIC (Scandinavian + Irish))
Secretary of Education (Miguel Cardona – HISPANIC (Puerto Rican))
Secretary of Veterans Affairs (Denis McDonough – WHITE-CATHOLIC (Irish American))
Secretary of Homeland Security (Alejandro Mayorkas HISPANIC-JEWISH)
Trade Representative (Katherine Tai – ASIAN (Chinese American))
Director of National Intelligence (Avril Haines – WHITE-JEWISH)
Director of the Office of Management and Budget (Neera Tanden – ASIAN (Indian-American))
Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (William Burns – WHITE CATHOLIC (Irish-American))
Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (Michael S. Regan – BLACK)
Administrator of the Small Business Administration (Isabel Guzman – HISPANIC-JEWISH)

I don’t see a huge amount of evidence that Guzman identifies as Jewish: “Isabel also shares Jewish and German heritage, and possibly some Chinese.”

Out of the 21 positions:

Seven are Whites with a Catholic background (33%)
Six are Jewish (28.5%)
Four are Hispanic (19%)
Three are Black (14.3%)
Two are Asian (9.5%)
Zero are White with a Protestant ethnic background.

There are some other Cabinet-Level posts, such as:

Chief of Staff – Ron Klain, Jewish
UN Ambassador – Linda Thomas-Greenfield, black
Chair of Council of Economic Advisers – Linda Rouse, black
Science Adviser – Eric Lander, Jewish
National Security Adviser – Jake Sullivan, but is he, as they ask in Belfast, a Catholic atheist or a Protestant atheist?
Climate Supremo – John Kerry, half Jewish, half Boston Brahmin Protestants. Update: But Kerry was raised Catholic, which helped his political career in Massachusetts where it was assumed any Catholic named “Kerry” had to be Irish, right?

Assuming that Sullivan is yet another Catholic Irishman and Guzman is not very Jewish, that would make a total of 8 white Catholics (4 of them Irish), 7 Jews, 5 blacks, 4 Hispanics (one of them Jewish), 2 Asians, and nobody 100% white Protestant. Buttigieg and Kerry might add up to one white Protestant between them.

In general, the Presidency has been overwhelmingly dominated by Protestants (usually post-Puritans or Scots-Irish), with only Kennedy and now Biden not being Protestants. Joe is so incredibly old (he was 18 when JFK was sworn in) that this 1960-style Protestant vs. Catholic division is still relevant to him.

As I may have mentioned once or twice, the contemporary Democratic Party is a Coalition of the Margins: the less you are like George Washington, the more likely you are to be a Democrat. It’s funny how few get that.

    There are hardly any remaining intellectual Protestants. They have all become atheists/agnostics, or converted to Catholicism or Orthodoxy.

    A religious service should not feel like a 5th grade character education lesson in a sterile classroom.

    As an irreligious person (not baptized in any faith, but dragged to church on occasion until I was a teenager) raised with a Catholic parent and a Baptist parent, and thus exposed to both traditions, the Baptist services were far more inane and intolerable than mass. If you like getting moral lessons from a weird self-promoting yahoo, staring at dull white walls, and mindlessly socializing, then American Protestantism is for you.

It used to be that nooses, or even lynching, evoked for me no images beyond those that might be at home in an episode of Bonanza, but a dozen years ago or so I learned that I’m supposed to think of racial strife. Black rainbows will be due for an appearance at some point."

    So, the up-to-date rainbow flags now have black and brown stripes, as you say? Those still flying the old ROYGBIV-only flags better act fast before the denouncing begins.

    , @Wilkey
    @Thomas

    Historically the two groups that hate WASPs the most are Irish and Jews. On the Old World side, Irish hate Brits because of the British occupation of Ireland, which many have still never gotten over, even as the only countries they ever move to are countries started by the British - America, Australia, and Canada.

    Both hate American WASPs because WASPs were running America when their ancestors arrived.

    Basically Jews hate WASPs for the same reason so many people hate Jews - because WASPs had money, political power, and social networks. So their WASP hatred is literally no different than anti-Semitism and has no greater justification.

    But if you look at the Biden Cabinet it's not just the absence of WASPs which sticks out. It's the difference between the importance of the cabinet positions held by each group. Treasury, State, Justice, and Defense are the traditional Big Four, and three of them are held by Jews.

    State and Homeland Security have the most control over immigration - both held by Jews.

    National security positions have access to a lot of state secrets. Aside from Defense, they all appear to have gone to Jews. His chief of staff is also Jewish.

    That's really the big story here. This administration is trying to finalize the conquest of America from its founding stock population. But we're not allowed to challenge the myth that Jews are an oppressed people rather than the ones running almost everything that matters.

    Longtime Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz grew up on a farm in Indiana.

    More trivia:

    Pope joke
    At the 1974 World Food Conference in Rome, Butz made fun of Pope Paul VI's opposition to "population control" by quipping, in a mock Italian accent: "He no playa the game, he no maka the rules." A spokesman for Cardinal Cooke of the New York archdiocese demanded an apology, and the White House requested that he apologize. Butz issued a statement saying that he had not "intended to impugn the motives or the integrity of any religious group, ethnic group or religious leader." Through a spokesman, he stated that media outlets had taken this portion of his statement out of their original context, which was that of retelling a joke.

    Dirty joke
    News outlets revealed a racist remark he made in front of entertainers Pat Boone and Sonny Bono and former White House counsel John Dean while aboard a commercial flight to California following the 1976 Republican National Convention. The October 18, 1976 issue of Time reported the comment while obscuring its vulgarity:

    Butz started by telling a dirty joke involving intercourse between a dog and a skunk. When the conversation turned to politics, Boone, a right-wing Republican, asked Butz why the party of Lincoln was not able to attract more blacks. The Secretary responded with a line so obscene and insulting to blacks that it forced him out of the Cabinet last week and jolted the whole Ford campaign. Butz said: "I'll tell you what the coloreds want. It's three things: first, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shit."
    After some indecision, Dean used the line in Rolling Stone, attributing it to an unnamed Cabinet officer. But New Times magazine enterprisingly sleuthed out Butz's identity by checking the itineraries of all Cabinet members.

    Butz resigned his cabinet post on October 4, 1976

    On May 22, 1981, Butz pleaded guilty to federal tax evasion charges for having under-reported income he earned in 1978. On June 19, he was sentenced to five years in prison. All but 30 days of the term were suspended. He was also fined $10,000 and ordered to pay $61,183 in civil penalties

    Maltese isn’t really Arabic, it is a form of creolised Arabic and the subsequent Norman invasion led to another layer of creolisation. And it has always be written with a Latin script, never an Arabic script and significant numbers still spoke Sicilian or Italian until the modern era.

    It kinda demonstrates the development of a political “immune response” after the 2008 Great Recession. That the “Masters of the Universe” (some of whom were formerly Marxist orientated) figured the best means of suppressing “class consciousness” against the bailouts were to turbocharge female (and racial black) consciousness. Those two demographics are the most heavily invested in neoliberalism and the civil rights revolution of the 1960s.

While the spending has been out of control under both parties forever, at some point “going big” is going to make a mess. Also adding upward of 20 million illegals; how do you pay for that? How do you deal with the economic displacement at the entry level of the wage scale? Supply and demand is not repealed because of “racial equity”.

    Lloyd Austin as per The Tablet, a NYC local Catholic periodical, is “devoutly Catholic”. Except of course on those pesky abortion rules Biden is quick to ignore. Reality is COVID has emptied the churches that were already losing congregants. It means less and less.

    My fondest memory of Earl Butz was when he told a hilarious joke about having a “very representative commission” for something or other because it had “two blacks, a Jew, and a cripple.” WAPO had some indignant report about it and he was forced to resign shortly thereafter.

Remember McChrystal, his rabbi, conceived The Surge based on the French campaign in Algeria, which ended in…a complete and totally stinging disaster for France, and almost a military coup. McChrystal this very week is all over comparing any opponents of the new Administration with “insurgents”. None of that Bill of Rights nonsense for him. This could be his penance for getting drunk on an unplanned Paris layover and badmouthing Obama to the media. Or worse, he could believe his own bullshit. Austin, like McChrystal, is a West Pointer loaded with graduate degrees paid for by the US Army.

    Maltese is thus classified separately from the 30 varieties constituting the modern Arabic macrolanguage. Maltese is also distinguished from Arabic and other Semitic languages since its morphology has been deeply influenced by Romance languages, namely Italian and Sicilian.
    The original Arabic base comprises around one-third of the Maltese vocabulary, especially words that denote basic ideas and the function words, but about half of the vocabulary is derived from standard Italian and Sicilian; and English words make up between 6 % and 20 % of the vocabulary.

    Maltese has always been written in the Latin script, the earliest surviving example dating from the late Middle Ages. It continues to be the only standardised Semitic language written exclusively in the Latin script.

    There's a genetic component to being an Ashkenazi Jew, with associated heritble traits, and IQ is just one trait. Jews have other traits in common (in terms of having a different group mean). For instance, you might have a greater radius of trust, which would make it more likely for you to support immigration. You don't have to know you're a Jew to have the basic traits, although the cultural component would not be there. By the way, Steve is looking more and more Jewish as he ages.

    Because Jews are far more overrepresented on the Supreme Court than are the Catholics - even now. And will still be overrepresented even if Breyer retires and is replaced by a non-Jewish justice.

    Jews are 2-3% of the population. They are 22% of the Court. They were 33% of the Court. If Merrick Garland had been confirmed they would have been 44% of the Court.

    Even with just one Jewish Justice they would still be 4-5x their share of the population.

    Catholics are about 20% of the US population, but 66% of the Court. So definitely more than their share, but not ridiculously so, as with Jews.

    I suspect there are two reasons for why there are so many Catholics now. First, Protestant justices have been disappointments for conservatives. In some cases, severe disappointments (e.g., David Souter). Second, Protestantism has split between non- or anti-intellectual contingents (Evangelicals) and politically correct contingents (Episcopalians, etc.). It sadly doesn't leave you much to work with.

    Jack, you're not even trying anymore, or maybe you're stuck in the past.

    Anyway, for the benefit of others, I'll reply. The reason us rubes no longer worry about Catholic American politicians being disloyal to Heritage America is because they've generally as loyal to Heritage America as WASPs. The reason that us rubes worry about Jewish American (really, American Jews) politicians being disloyal to Heritage America is because 90% of them have shown far more loyalty to Israel (their heritage) and Heritage America and they've been instrumental in destroying Heritage America.

    Your (and other Jewish commentators around here) failure to acknowledge the reality of your fellow American Jews is, frankly, terrifying. You would justify and excuse Jews doing pretty much anything to my people.

    Tripp. Trey. Trace. All were names I had never encountered until I started graduate school in the Ivy League. But then I met them all, the third-generation scions of America’s white Anglo-Saxon Protestant establishment, people who popped their collars and owned Sailfish boats and who had never been to the Jersey Shore. Seriously, I thought to myself more than once, you call yourself Trey?

    It is a puzzle to many Catholics, and I suspect to most families in the United States that don’t have a father named Powers or Percy. I was at a family vacation once (down the Shore, natch) and a fight broke out over how we were to identify ourselves. It was settled by a cousin who announced “that’s Jimmy the Cop, that’s Jimmy the Priest, that’s Little Jimmy, that’s Big Jimmy and that’s Old Jimmy.” The Mikes and the Bobbys in the room nodded along.

It used to be that nooses, or even lynching, evoked for me no images beyond those that might be at home in an episode of Bonanza, but a dozen years ago or so I learned that I’m supposed to think of racial strife. Black rainbows will be due for an appearance at some point.”

    So, the up-to-date rainbow flags now have black and brown stripes, as you say? Those still flying the old ROYGBIV-only flags better act fast before the denouncing begins.

  51. The same hold true for the US Supreme Court.

    Gorsuch simply refuses to say whether he’s a Catholic or an Episcopalian, so he can’t really be counted as a Protestant. The other eight are either Catholic or Jewish – with varying degrees of devotion to the religion in which they were raised.

    Until 1981, all Supreme Court Justices had been males. Until 1967, all had had been white males. Until 1916, all had been White Christian males.* Until 1894, all had been been white Protestant males (with one exception – Taney (1836-64). In 2010, Stevens retired, and then there were none.

    Ya gotta hand it to white Protestants. They don’t gripe about lack of diversity.

    It's absolute bullshit. I've been to county Kerry, and there's a museum dedicated to the Blasket Islanders, the last "Wild Irish" in the area. These are people who didn't even begin learning English until the 1950s, when the last of them were evacuated for humanitarian reasons. Anyway, there are pictures of their descendants, who seem to have all decamped for Massachusetts and become state troopers. Handsome, strapping fellows, bred to row boats on the rowdy waters of the Atlantic, harpoon and club sea mammals and, evidently, keep order in MA (hey, I guess you do the work you know). It was kind of amusing to see the stereotype so innocently on display in a country museum in rural Ireland.

    The truth is the Blasket Islanders were merely the last Kerrymen to leave for the US. The county lost 60% of its population from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. A very substantial proportion of those people went to Massachusetts. A couple of my great grandparents were from Kerry, but they went to Nevada (via San Francisco) and got to Virginia City right about when Mark Twain left for San Francisco.

    John Kerry's grandfather was surely aware of the presence of so many immigrants from Kerry, who also happened to be among the most Irish of the Irish. Having a name popular with the guys who ran local law enforcement was highly unlikely to be a random choice. However, I doubt it was pure cunning. Perhaps Kohn really admired these guys. There is something charismatic about strong, unschooled men without a penny to spare coming in and seizing the levers of power in the most culturally sophisticated society in the United States.

    You are perhaps unaware of Biden’s menacing of the United Kingdom over Northern Ireland. Britain has been humiliated and forced to accept an ordering-power function of foreign countries on the UK’s territory. I happen to think the relationship between America and Britain will deteriorate inexorably. The EU will increasingly be seen as an enemy of Britain as well as a friend of Eire, which is not considering the consequences of it triumph. By the way, citizens of the Southern Irish republic have the right of entry to Britain, they can also live, get welfare and vote there.

    Some call the Maltese language “Latinized Arabic”, which has merit, yet the days of Arabic itself being spoken on Malta are centuries ago. Just over half of the words in Maltese are Italian; another 6-10% of their words are English and to a much lesser extent, French.

    Moreover, calling Jews “white” is genetically either wrong or a gross overstatement if we mean “European.” Even assuming these particular Royalty aren’t at all Sephardic, Ashkenazi Jews are typically more Semitic than European (although genetic studies suggest they are often as much as FORTY percent Italian). “Ashkenazi Jewish” would be accurate, much more so than merely “white”, or at least “mixed white / Jewish.”

    Historically the two groups that hate WASPs the most are Irish and Jews. On the Old World side, Irish hate Brits because of the British occupation of Ireland, which many have still never gotten over, even as the only countries they ever move to are countries started by the British – America, Australia, and Canada.

    Both hate American WASPs because WASPs were running America when their ancestors arrived.

    Basically Jews hate WASPs for the same reason so many people hate Jews – because WASPs had money, political power, and social networks. So their WASP hatred is literally no different than anti-Semitism and has no greater justification.

    But if you look at the Biden Cabinet it’s not just the absence of WASPs which sticks out. It’s the difference between the importance of the cabinet positions held by each group. Treasury, State, Justice, and Defense are the traditional Big Four, and three of them are held by Jews.

    State and Homeland Security have the most control over immigration – both held by Jews.

    National security positions have access to a lot of state secrets. Aside from Defense, they all appear to have gone to Jews. His chief of staff is also Jewish.

    That’s really the big story here. This administration is trying to finalize the conquest of America from its founding stock population. But we’re not allowed to challenge the myth that Jews are an oppressed people rather than the ones running almost everything that matters.

    Even this differs by the geography of the diaspora. It's particularly strong in Boston, perhaps the real capital of the IRA. A little less so in New York City and Chicago. St Paul is proud of her Irish heritage*, but doesn't seem to be aware of the British, let alone obsessed with them.

    There is a shadow of this mentality in Scandiavian-Americans. Norwegians, who came when their peninsula of peninsulae was under Sweden's control, are proud and vocal about it. Swedes are proud, but less vocal.

    Finns, under Sweden's thumb for as long as the Irish were under the English, are also proud, but being Finns, are not vocal about anything. (Also, their final century of vassalage was under the Russians, which helps them put things into perspective.) Danes are so assimilated that were it not for their surnames, no one would know they are here.

    Never underestimate the cannibal capitalist appetite for cheap labor. Were it possible to breed and train monkeys for cheap labor the capitalists would do it.

    There’s 800 numbers posted all over the primitive villages in Central America recruiting workers for American agriculture, food processing, restaurant janitor and garment factory labor contractors.

    19th century American labor recruiters went to every depressed and famine area of Europe looking for cheap labor. There was a terrible famine in Sweden that drove Swedes to the upper Midwest.

    The story supposedly was that they dropped a pencil on map and it landed on County Kerry, Ireland.
    I call bullshit on this. Fritz Kohn was some kind of high living scammer who made and lost three fortunes before killing himself. He wouldn't have left his choice of name to an random pencil drop.

    Still it's a stretch to call Kerry "half Jewish". Genetically he is but grandpa and grandma converted 120 years ago and the "Kerrys" have been Catholic ever since (well Kerry's baby brother Cameron converted back to Judaism when he married a Jewish woman).

    It is the height of naïveté to say “well, sure, he’s genetically part Jewish, but that doesn’t matter.” Even partial Jewish genetic and family background can guide a person’s loyalties and opportunities way down the generations, and it does.

    Jews will take someone in power who’s only part genetically Jewish because they rightly expect that he is more likely to be loyal to Jewish interests at our expense. Someone like Kerry is considered ‘Jewish enough’ if they can’t get a fuller member of the Inbred Supremacist Tribe in there.

    You've got that completely backward. Converts were among the people who were most dangerous to Jews in the old days. For many Christians, Jews are sort of "take 'em or leave 'em" matters of indifference but the convert has made a conscious decision to "leave 'em". Often, as in the case of Lenin's grandfather, the convert came into conflict with the Jewish community and had reason to dislike them. Further, former Jews knew "where the bodies were buried" - where the juicy passages in the Talmud were that appeared to dis Jesus and so on. Taking on a clever ex-Jew who had switched to the other side was much more dangerous than taking on a dumb goy.

    Converted Jews were the biggest persecutors of Jews, since there is no fervor quite as intense as that of the converted. They were also a handy cudgel - as former Jews, they could be used to slaughter Jews without their gentile bosses getting their hands dirty. After all, this was, in a sense, Jew upon Jew violence and yet another shining example of the perfidy and sheer evil of the Judaic element - cannibals by another name. The gist here is that if you really don't care for a given category of people, everything they do is evidence of their villainy.

    Because Jews are far more overrepresented on the Supreme Court than are the Catholics – even now. And will still be overrepresented even if Breyer retires and is replaced by a non-Jewish justice.

    Jews are 2-3% of the population. They are 22% of the Court. They were 33% of the Court. If Merrick Garland had been confirmed they would have been 44% of the Court.

    Even with just one Jewish Justice they would still be 4-5x their share of the population.

    Catholics are about 20% of the US population, but 66% of the Court. So definitely more than their share, but not ridiculously so, as with Jews.

    I suspect there are two reasons for why there are so many Catholics now. First, Protestant justices have been disappointments for conservatives. In some cases, severe disappointments (e.g., David Souter). Second, Protestantism has split between non- or anti-intellectual contingents (Evangelicals) and politically correct contingents (Episcopalians, etc.). It sadly doesn’t leave you much to work with.

Because of the shifted IQ curve of Ashkenazi Jews they may only be 2% of the US population but if you look at people with IQs over 130 they are probably more like 20% and as such 2 Jewish Supreme Ct. justices out of 9 are right in line with the % of Jewish Nobel Prize winners, chess champions, billionaires, etc.

    However, I don't think that is the explanation for Catholic supreme ct justices - Harvard Law School is not 66% Catholic. I think you are on the right track - Dems like to appoint (esp.

    Historically the two groups that hate WASPs the most are Irish and Jews. On the Old World side, Irish hate Brits because of the British occupation of Ireland, which many have still never gotten over, even as the only countries they ever move to are countries started by the British - America, Australia, and Canada.

    Both hate American WASPs because WASPs were running America when their ancestors arrived.

    Basically Jews hate WASPs for the same reason so many people hate Jews - because WASPs had money, political power, and social networks. So their WASP hatred is literally no different than anti-Semitism and has no greater justification.

    But if you look at the Biden Cabinet it's not just the absence of WASPs which sticks out. It's the difference between the importance of the cabinet positions held by each group. Treasury, State, Justice, and Defense are the traditional Big Four, and three of them are held by Jews.

    State and Homeland Security have the most control over immigration - both held by Jews.

    National security positions have access to a lot of state secrets. Aside from Defense, they all appear to have gone to Jews. His chief of staff is also Jewish.

    That's really the big story here. This administration is trying to finalize the conquest of America from its founding stock population. But we're not allowed to challenge the myth that Jews are an oppressed people rather than the ones running almost everything that matters.

    Longtime Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz grew up on a farm in Indiana.

    Longtime Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz grew up on a farm in Indiana.

    More trivia:

    Pope joke
    At the 1974 World Food Conference in Rome, Butz made fun of Pope Paul VI’s opposition to “population control” by quipping, in a mock Italian accent: “He no playa the game, he no maka the rules.” A spokesman for Cardinal Cooke of the New York archdiocese demanded an apology, and the White House requested that he apologize. Butz issued a statement saying that he had not “intended to impugn the motives or the integrity of any religious group, ethnic group or religious leader.” Through a spokesman, he stated that media outlets had taken this portion of his statement out of their original context, which was that of retelling a joke.

    Dirty joke
    News outlets revealed a racist remark he made in front of entertainers Pat Boone and Sonny Bono and former White House counsel John Dean while aboard a commercial flight to California following the 1976 Republican National Convention. The October 18, 1976 issue of Time reported the comment while obscuring its vulgarity:

    Butz started by telling a dirty joke involving intercourse between a dog and a skunk. When the conversation turned to politics, Boone, a right-wing Republican, asked Butz why the party of Lincoln was not able to attract more blacks. The Secretary responded with a line so obscene and insulting to blacks that it forced him out of the Cabinet last week and jolted the whole Ford campaign. Butz said: “I’ll tell you what the coloreds want. It’s three things: first, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shit.”
    After some indecision, Dean used the line in Rolling Stone, attributing it to an unnamed Cabinet officer. But New Times magazine enterprisingly sleuthed out Butz’s identity by checking the itineraries of all Cabinet members.

    Butz resigned his cabinet post on October 4, 1976

    On May 22, 1981, Butz pleaded guilty to federal tax evasion charges for having under-reported income he earned in 1978. On June 19, he was sentenced to five years in prison. All but 30 days of the term were suspended. He was also fined $10,000 and ordered to pay $61,183 in civil penalties

    Michael Lewis in his book “The Fifth Risk” argued that many of the cabinets departments are misnamed. The USDA is closer to the Department of Rural since many programs like rural drug programs are run through the USDA. The Department of Energy is closer to the Department of Nuclear Weapons. The Commerce Department is closer to the Department of Data considering its biggest budget item is NOAA and contains the Census Bureau.

  102. Hey, Steve and readers, I’ve been looking up some info on this Katherine Tai. She is full-out Chinese and was born in Connecticut. Both her parents were born in mainland China. However, (and I haven’t found those details yet), I’m guessing her folks were hard-core anti-Commies, as I read that they “grew up in Taiwan”. They must have gotten out of Red China with the rest of the Nationalists in the “Great Retreat” in late 1949, pretty young I guess, since Mrs. Tai was born in 1974.

    Going to the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, FS, then Yale and Harvard Law School, can knock the Conservatism right out of a guy, or gal, though. Mrs. Tai taught English at a university in China for 2 years – this had to be between the late ’90s and ’07. That was kind of a weird deal for a young woman law graduate, as that is a better deal for young Western men with Yellow Fever who can live on a low budget and pick up chicks.

    Oh, from CNBC:

    Tai, who is Asian-American, would also be the first woman of color to serve as the USTR. She is fluent in Mandarin.

    No shit? I would never have known, had I not read the enlightening article. BTW, Steve, did you see that “first woman of color”? I thought Oriental people were not part of that P.O.C. crowd. I guess it’s good for the stats without having to hire some dumb corrupt black lady.

    Whose side is Katherine Tai on regarding trade? I’d guess she’s on the side of all the Establishment. meaning she’s down with giving all that’s left away. Biden says he’s not going to take away Trump’s tariffs yet, but we’ll see. I think he’s on the hook to the CCP, and they will both do whatever they are told.

In Scientific American, the head of Iwasaki Lab at Yale University Medical School, Dr. Akiko Iwasaki, argues that the seasonality of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory infections is largely down to humidity.

For instance, you might have a greater radius of trust, which would make it more likely for you to support immigration. You don’t have to know you’re a Jew to have the basic traits, although the cultural component would not be there. By the way, Steve is looking more and more Jewish as he ages.

    Protestants are definitely getting the short end of the stick but as I have noted before wrt the Supreme Court, the Catholics are doing even better than the Jews but seem to garner less resentment among the Unz crowd – “the Jews are taking over” type remarks must run 100 to 1 against “the Catholics are taking over”
     
    Because Jews are far more overrepresented on the Supreme Court than are the Catholics - even now. And will still be overrepresented even if Breyer retires and is replaced by a non-Jewish justice.

    Jews are 2-3% of the population. They are 22% of the Court. They were 33% of the Court. If Merrick Garland had been confirmed they would have been 44% of the Court.

    Even with just one Jewish Justice they would still be 4-5x their share of the population.

    Catholics are about 20% of the US population, but 66% of the Court. So definitely more than their share, but not ridiculously so, as with Jews.

    I suspect there are two reasons for why there are so many Catholics now. First, Protestant justices have been disappointments for conservatives. In some cases, severe disappointments (e.g., David Souter). Second, Protestantism has split between non- or anti-intellectual contingents (Evangelicals) and politically correct contingents (Episcopalians, etc.). It sadly doesn't leave you much to work with.

    “ Even with just one Jewish Justice they would still be 4-5x their share of the population.”

    “ Jews are 2-3% of the population. ”

    Jews are more than 3% of the population if you are counting people like John Kerry as Jewish. Before mass intermarriage and assimilation they were about 4% of the white population, which already then had assimilated a very large share of pre-1900 Jews.

  108. This may be interesting, but I have other things on my mind.

    1. race comes first, combined with different national-religious cultures. So, this is the first divide.

    2. among whites, Catholics may be divided into a few categories: superstitious medieval types, high culture types & bland opportunists. I’d say that the last category dominates.

    3. for Jews (whites) there are two types – leftist rootless cosmopolitans & Israel firsters. Both types I understand & find repulsive. And they dominate Biden’s cabinet. American patriotic Jews are not present there.

    4. white Protestants, the people who made America great, from Franklin to Pauling, from Melville to Lincoln, from Teddy Roosevelt to John Bardeen, are absent. If we look at this category, not just in Biden’s cabinet, we can only lament- where are you guys? Where is your national consciousness? Why are there so many traitors among you, from Gates to Buffet & all the rest?

    Adelson- buried in Israel.

    Where will be your burial place?

    Needless to say, I despise all this farce about Biden & everything.

    1. The "folks who are keeping such careful ...tallies..." were a different bunch than today's Unz story and commentators. Perhaps you have forgotten all of the moans, bitching and racist hate directed at Trump and Bush, etc. about their cabinet and leadership selections. Endless media echoed accusations of racism, sexism, etc. all because the quota queens and Marxist Identity hustlers didn't like those GOP selections. Sauce for the goose and gander, right?

    2. As noted in this article and a prior one (about Beverly Hills High) these Biden selections hardly look like America as per the quota mongers.

    I think the protestant/catholic difference is largely one of personality. I did ancestry.com a few years ago and from what I can tell my ancestors ditched catholicism as soon as an alternative arose. My guess would be that they naturally disrespect the silly costumes, endless, meaningless showiness of it. I'm the same way. I'm just naturally repulsed by all of that foolishness, the stupid outfits of the hierarchy, the ornate, incredibly expensive buildings built by donations of poor people. Nobody would read the gospels and think that is what jesus had in mind.

    Catholics seem to care more about titles and hierarchy. They would rather be the worst executive in history than a really good accountant. They flock to occupations that have a lot of ritual and I'd guess that's why there are a lot of catholic judges. I'd never want to be a judge, I understand they need to exist but it's a necessary evil.

    Alan Watts, who pretended to be an Episcopalian priest for a bit, later tried to make sense of Protestantism as "the most far-out game you can play."

    "The insides of most Protestant churches resemble courthouses or town halls, and the focal point of their services is a serious exhortation from a man in a black gown. No golden light, no bells, incense, and candles. No mystery upon an altar or behind an iconostasis. But people brought up in this atmosphere seem to love it. It feels warm and folksy, and leads, on the one hand, to hospitals, prison reform, and votes for all, and, on the other, to sheer genius for drabness, plain cooking ungraced with wine, and constipation of the bright emotions—all of which are considered virtues.

    "If I try to set aside the innate prejudices which I feel against this religion, I begin to marvel at the depth of its commitment to earnestness and ugliness. For there is a point at which certain types of ugliness become fascinating, where one feels drawn to going over them again and again, much as the tongue keeps fondling a hole in a tooth. I begin to realize that those incredibly plain people, with their almost unique lack of color, may after all be one of the most astonishing reaches of the divine Maya-the Dancer of the world as far out from himself as he can get, dancing not-dancing."

    Still it's a stretch to call Kerry "half Jewish". Genetically he is but grandpa and grandma converted 120 years ago and the "Kerrys" have been Catholic ever since (well Kerry's baby brother Cameron converted back to Judaism when he married a Jewish woman).

    Replies: @RadicalCenter, @Bill P, @Alden

    It’s absolute bullshit. I’ve been to county Kerry, and there’s a museum dedicated to the Blasket Islanders, the last “Wild Irish” in the area. These are people who didn’t even begin learning English until the 1950s, when the last of them were evacuated for humanitarian reasons. Anyway, there are pictures of their descendants, who seem to have all decamped for Massachusetts and become state troopers. Handsome, strapping fellows, bred to row boats on the rowdy waters of the Atlantic, harpoon and club sea mammals and, evidently, keep order in MA (hey, I guess you do the work you know). It was kind of amusing to see the stereotype so innocently on display in a country museum in rural Ireland.

    The truth is the Blasket Islanders were merely the last Kerrymen to leave for the US. The county lost 60% of its population from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. A very substantial proportion of those people went to Massachusetts. A couple of my great grandparents were from Kerry, but they went to Nevada (via San Francisco) and got to Virginia City right about when Mark Twain left for San Francisco.

    John Kerry’s grandfather was surely aware of the presence of so many immigrants from Kerry, who also happened to be among the most Irish of the Irish. Having a name popular with the guys who ran local law enforcement was highly unlikely to be a random choice. However, I doubt it was pure cunning. Perhaps Kohn really admired these guys. There is something charismatic about strong, unschooled men without a penny to spare coming in and seizing the levers of power in the most culturally sophisticated society in the United States.

And that it is not about some marginal issues, but the core question of racial-cultural identity of a people.

    Vilsack was born in a Roman Catholic orphanage in Pittsburgh so he has deep roots in farming.
     
    Vilsack moved to his wife's hometown in Iowa when he graduated from law school in 1975 (45 years ago) so he has put down pretty deep roots in Iowa.

    Protestants are definitely getting the short end of the stick but as I have noted before wrt the Supreme Court, the Catholics are doing even better than the Jews but seem to garner less resentment among the Unz crowd - "the Jews are taking over" type remarks must run 100 to 1 against "the Catholics are taking over", even though there is an actual Catholic in the White House right now and there has never been a Jewish POTUS. Old fashioned nativists used to rant and rave about how Catholics would take orders from the Pope, etc. but that seems to have faded completely - even among the most reactionary grandpas here nary a word was said about Biden's possible divided loyalty whereas Jewish politicians are frequently accused of being loyal to Israel. Of course some of these grandpas may be Catholic themselves, which may explain some of it.

    You’ve got that completely backward. Converts were among the people who were most dangerous to Jews in the old days. For many Christians, Jews are sort of “take ’em or leave ’em” matters of indifference but the convert has made a conscious decision to “leave ’em”. Often, as in the case of Lenin’s grandfather, the convert came into conflict with the Jewish community and had reason to dislike them. Further, former Jews knew “where the bodies were buried” – where the juicy passages in the Talmud were that appeared to dis Jesus and so on. Taking on a clever ex-Jew who had switched to the other side was much more dangerous than taking on a dumb goy.

They lost it because they basically decided to retire their power and pass the scepter to another group of people. Their hold on power was always resented by Jews and intelligent non-WASP whites like Nixon and Lyndon Johnson. IQ supremacists who wanted to open up the Ivy League and the Seven Sisters who they accused of not accepting high IQ non-WASP played a very big part in this diversification of the previous ethno-aristocratic WASP elite. In a country with an individualistic culture having a very diverse elite whose only thing in common will be high IQ will result in individualistic elites.

    Historically the two groups that hate WASPs the most are Irish and Jews. On the Old World side, Irish hate Brits because of the British occupation of Ireland, which many have still never gotten over, even as the only countries they ever move to are countries started by the British - America, Australia, and Canada.

    Both hate American WASPs because WASPs were running America when their ancestors arrived.

    Basically Jews hate WASPs for the same reason so many people hate Jews - because WASPs had money, political power, and social networks. So their WASP hatred is literally no different than anti-Semitism and has no greater justification.

    But if you look at the Biden Cabinet it's not just the absence of WASPs which sticks out. It's the difference between the importance of the cabinet positions held by each group. Treasury, State, Justice, and Defense are the traditional Big Four, and three of them are held by Jews.

    State and Homeland Security have the most control over immigration - both held by Jews.

    National security positions have access to a lot of state secrets. Aside from Defense, they all appear to have gone to Jews. His chief of staff is also Jewish.

    That's really the big story here. This administration is trying to finalize the conquest of America from its founding stock population. But we're not allowed to challenge the myth that Jews are an oppressed people rather than the ones running almost everything that matters.

    Even this differs by the geography of the diaspora. It’s particularly strong in Boston, perhaps the real capital of the IRA. A little less so in New York City and Chicago. St Paul is proud of her Irish heritage*, but doesn’t seem to be aware of the British, let alone obsessed with them.

    There is a shadow of this mentality in Scandiavian-Americans. Norwegians, who came when their peninsula of peninsulae was under Sweden’s control, are proud and vocal about it. Swedes are proud, but less vocal.

    Finns, under Sweden’s thumb for as long as the Irish were under the English, are also proud, but being Finns, are not vocal about anything. (Also, their final century of vassalage was under the Russians, which helps them put things into perspective.)

    Note that there were no vice versa stories in either case - Affirmative Right wasn't complaining in 2016 and the MSM isn't complaining now. It all depends on whose ox is being gored.

    As Steve says, the Republicans are basically the party of guys who look like George Washington and would like a cabinet that looks like them and the Democrats are the party of people who DON'T look like George Washington and would like a cabinet that looks like them. Every day there are more of the latter so the Republicans need to figure out a way to broaden their base beyond just George Washington descendants (of which it turns out there are actually none).

    It's absolute bullshit. I've been to county Kerry, and there's a museum dedicated to the Blasket Islanders, the last "Wild Irish" in the area. These are people who didn't even begin learning English until the 1950s, when the last of them were evacuated for humanitarian reasons. Anyway, there are pictures of their descendants, who seem to have all decamped for Massachusetts and become state troopers. Handsome, strapping fellows, bred to row boats on the rowdy waters of the Atlantic, harpoon and club sea mammals and, evidently, keep order in MA (hey, I guess you do the work you know). It was kind of amusing to see the stereotype so innocently on display in a country museum in rural Ireland.

    The truth is the Blasket Islanders were merely the last Kerrymen to leave for the US. The county lost 60% of its population from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. A very substantial proportion of those people went to Massachusetts. A couple of my great grandparents were from Kerry, but they went to Nevada (via San Francisco) and got to Virginia City right about when Mark Twain left for San Francisco.

    John Kerry's grandfather was surely aware of the presence of so many immigrants from Kerry, who also happened to be among the most Irish of the Irish. Having a name popular with the guys who ran local law enforcement was highly unlikely to be a random choice. However, I doubt it was pure cunning. Perhaps Kohn really admired these guys. There is something charismatic about strong, unschooled men without a penny to spare coming in and seizing the levers of power in the most culturally sophisticated society in the United States.

And that it is not about some marginal issues, but the core question of racial-cultural identity of a people.

    There are hardly any remaining intellectual Protestants. They have all become atheists/agnostics, or converted to Catholicism or Orthodoxy.

    A religious service should not feel like a 5th grade character education lesson in a sterile classroom.

    As an irreligious person (not baptized in any faith, but dragged to church on occasion until I was a teenager) raised with a Catholic parent and a Baptist parent, and thus exposed to both traditions, the Baptist services were far more inane and intolerable than mass. If you like getting moral lessons from a weird self-promoting yahoo, staring at dull white walls, and mindlessly socializing, then American Protestantism is for you.

    Replies: @Alice in Wonderland, @James O'Meara

    Alan Watts, who pretended to be an Episcopalian priest for a bit, later tried to make sense of Protestantism as “the most far-out game you can play.”

    “The insides of most Protestant churches resemble courthouses or town halls, and the focal point of their services is a serious exhortation from a man in a black gown. No golden light, no bells, incense, and candles. No mystery upon an altar or behind an iconostasis. But people brought up in this atmosphere seem to love it. It feels warm and folksy, and leads, on the one hand, to hospitals, prison reform, and votes for all, and, on the other, to sheer genius for drabness, plain cooking ungraced with wine, and constipation of the bright emotions—all of which are considered virtues.

    “If I try to set aside the innate prejudices which I feel against this religion, I begin to marvel at the depth of its commitment to earnestness and ugliness. For there is a point at which certain types of ugliness become fascinating, where one feels drawn to going over them again and again, much as the tongue keeps fondling a hole in a tooth. I begin to realize that those incredibly plain people, with their almost unique lack of color, may after all be one of the most astonishing reaches of the divine Maya-the Dancer of the world as far out from himself as he can get, dancing not-dancing.”

    Actually, it is the other way. Civic institutions were set up to imitate religious institutions to create an atmosphere of seriousness (and induce fear/loyalty/morality/ethics etc., virtues) . Heck, that is why the courts insist on using Latin words and phrases when English would serve well and be easily understood. Now we have churches that have given up on Latin but courts use it.

    Converted Jews were the biggest persecutors of Jews, since there is no fervor quite as intense as that of the converted. They were also a handy cudgel – as former Jews, they could be used to slaughter Jews without their gentile bosses getting their hands dirty. After all, this was, in a sense, Jew upon Jew violence and yet another shining example of the perfidy and sheer evil of the Judaic element – cannibals by another name.

    Converted Jews were the biggest persecutors of Jews, since there is no fervor quite as intense as that of the converted. They were also a handy cudgel - as former Jews, they could be used to slaughter Jews without their gentile bosses getting their hands dirty. After all, this was, in a sense, Jew upon Jew violence and yet another shining example of the perfidy and sheer evil of the Judaic element - cannibals by another name. The gist here is that if you really don't care for a given category of people, everything they do is evidence of their villainy.

    And the historic WASP ethno-aristocracy managed to maintain solidarity and control, and kept Jews and non-WASP whites out of the power structure until the early 1950s. They lost it because they basically decided to retire their power and pass the scepter to another group of people. Their hold on power was always resented by Jews and intelligent non-WASP whites like Nixon and Lyndon Johnson. IQ supremacists who wanted to open up the Ivy League and the Seven Sisters who they accused of not accepting high IQ non-WASP played a very big part in this diversification of the previous ethno-aristocratic WASP elite. In a country with an individualistic culture having a very diverse elite whose only thing in common will be high IQ will result in individualistic elites.

    Alan Watts, who pretended to be an Episcopalian priest for a bit, later tried to make sense of Protestantism as "the most far-out game you can play."

    "The insides of most Protestant churches resemble courthouses or town halls, and the focal point of their services is a serious exhortation from a man in a black gown. No golden light, no bells, incense, and candles. No mystery upon an altar or behind an iconostasis. But people brought up in this atmosphere seem to love it. It feels warm and folksy, and leads, on the one hand, to hospitals, prison reform, and votes for all, and, on the other, to sheer genius for drabness, plain cooking ungraced with wine, and constipation of the bright emotions—all of which are considered virtues.

    "If I try to set aside the innate prejudices which I feel against this religion, I begin to marvel at the depth of its commitment to earnestness and ugliness. For there is a point at which certain types of ugliness become fascinating, where one feels drawn to going over them again and again, much as the tongue keeps fondling a hole in a tooth. I begin to realize that those incredibly plain people, with their almost unique lack of color, may after all be one of the most astonishing reaches of the divine Maya-the Dancer of the world as far out from himself as he can get, dancing not-dancing."

    Actually, it is the other way. Civic institutions were set up to imitate religious institutions to create an atmosphere of seriousness (and induce fear/loyalty/morality/ethics etc., virtues) . Heck, that is why the courts insist on using Latin words and phrases when English would serve well and be easily understood. Now we have churches that have given up on Latin but courts use it. It is the same reason college commencement ceremonies involve strange gowns and head coverings.

    True, but that's not why they STILL insist on using Latin. Lawyers, at least in the Anglo-American tradition, love all that mystery and ceremony in itself; like precedent, they do/use it because they've always done/used it.

    Also, as I've pointed out several times, lawyers are lazy, bone idle gits. Why re-invent the wheel? Everything with them is forms, templates, models, etc. That way you don't have to actually do anything (hence paralegals, AI, online DIY etc.) and you don't run the risk of making a mistake.

    You'll note that now that all politicians are lawyers, legislation has ground to a halt. It's all delay, recess, vacation, hold over, etc. How many decades since they've passed a budget on time? (Hey guys, we can use this 'continuing resolution' form!)

    Look at the second impeachment. On the one hand, it's necessary to prevent Trump from launching nukes. On the other, let's wait til after Biden's inauguration (even though Trump is out of office). Oh, and then, let's wait till next week. Etc. Impeaching Trump 6 months after he leaves office is Peak Lawyering.

  209. First- Jews. I don’t see that their disproportional success & creativity in some sciences, finances & entertainment should translate into very visible & influential US politics’ positions, in this case Biden’s crucial cabinet members. What, after all, is the ability for government? Probably the most gifted member of Stalin’s ruling elite was Beria, a Mingrelian; I don’t know any Mingrelian great contribution to culture or science- yet, apart from being a psychopath, Beria had been the most capable member of Stalin’s gang.

    Equally, I don’t see that US Jews should be given an almost hereditary position in the US Treasury Department; nor in the Mid East “peace process”. On the contrary, they should be, because of their potentially suspicious loyalties re these sensitive issues, be excluded by default.

    And- which are the criteria for ability & talent for these highest government jobs? From what we know, most highest officials in the US, UK, France, Russia, Italy, Sweden, …are & have been no more than opportunistic trash, “qualified” only because of boot licking, spinelessness & in the case of Jews, tribal loyalties.

    Then, WASPs. Who are they?

    I tend to agree with Christopher Hitchens:

    “Actual class struggles apart, one of the aesthetic ways you could prove that there was a class system in America was by cogitating on the word, or acronym, ‘WASP.’ First minted by E. Digby Baltzell in his book The Protestant Establishment , the term stood for ‘White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.’ Except that, as I never grew tired of pointing out, the ‘W’ was something of a redundancy (there being by definition no BASPs or JASPs for anyone to be confused with, or confused about). ‘ASP,’ on the other hand, lacked some of the all-important tone. There being so relatively few Anglo-Saxon Catholics in the United States, the ‘S’ [sic] was arguably surplus to requirements as well. But then the acronym AS would scarcely do, either. And it would raise an additional difficulty. If ‘Anglo-Saxon’ descent was the qualifying thing, which surely it was, then why were George Wallace and Jerry Falwell not WASPs? After all, they were not merely white and Anglo-Saxon and Protestant, but very emphatic about all three things. Whereas a man like William F. Buckley, say, despite being a white Irish Catholic, radiated the very sort of demeanor for which the word WASP had been coined to begin with. So, for the matter of that, did the dapper gentleman from Richmond, Virginia, Tom Wolfe. Could it be, then, that WASP was really a term of class rather than ethnicity?  

    Are as diverse cultural-ideological groups as Mormons, Unitarian Universalists, Congregationalists, Adventists, Quakers, Christian Scientists … WASPs, even if most of them are of British & Northern European ancestry?

    I am not so sure.

    Heritage Americans? What heritage if you don’t care about it, or-even worse- you agitate against it? If you don’t feel that Franklin, Patrick Henry, Farragut, Jackson, Houston, Whitman, Adamses, Lincoln, Lee, Dewey, Jameses, Gibbs, Edison, Faulkner, … are the living presences who inform your inner being- then, you are not a heritage American.

    That was Gore Vidal's point about his fateful encounter with Norman Podhoretz at that cocktail party. Vidal said he was writing a book about the Civil War, and Podhoretz said "The Civil War is as distant to me as the War of the Roses."

    Ideally, that would be America's attitude to the Holocaust (something no American did to any American in America, so why a Holocaust Museum in Washington?), Irish independence, "Greater Serbia," Czarist pogroms against great-grandma's shtetl, etc.

    Unfortunately, and hypocritically, due to the influence of Podhoretz's Tribe (and literalist Christianity), Jewish feuds are supposed to be Really Big Deals, unlike Caesar's war on the Gauls.

    It probably won't be a "shooting war." Rather, more of a "sabotaging infrastructure war." Blue cities have become more fragile over the past several decades -- more third-world immigrants, aging population, and obsolete infrastructure.

    You also have asymmetric conditions for victory. Red Counties can starve out Blue Cities; Blue Cities have to occupy a nation of Red Counties (with Red County soldiers, no less). Take California. How many people would it take to knock out some major bridges, a few interstate choke points, and some aqueducts? Maybe set a dozen or so forest fires as well? It wouldn't take a large force to do it. California would be uninhabitable.

    Just two more observations.

    1. Catholicism is dissolving in the US & had not so many Catholics gone over to some kind of dumb Hamburger Protestantism, there would have been at least 40% Catholics in the US now. I have nothing against types like Gorsuch becoming Episcopalian (Episcopalians are cool, respectable via media). Just, I don't think that snake handling bozos are good news, either for themselves or for others.

    These people call themselves "Christians"- and are simultaneously clueless about Christianity; they worship Israel in absolutely bizarre manner; they are fanatics easy to manipulate. The fact that they are demonized in the US MSM fag media does not make this part of population good news. They are not heirs to Jefferson, Lincoln, Lee, Adams, Jackson, Roosevelt,... but to William Jennings Bryan, who was nothing but a windbag.

    In short - real, historical American nationalists, from Henry Adams to Douglas MacArthur have no modern progeny among identifiable demographic groups.

    2. as for contemporary US Jews & politics: I don't trust them. They are bad for historical America. Unlike many who post here, I have a good opinion on Henry Kissinger & a few other American Jews. But these are exceptions. In American public life, Jews stand for leftist anti-national depravity & Israel first. And I don't see much brilliance among them (senators, Biden's cabinet, ....). Were they irreplaceable in Soviet Union? Stalin showed us it was not so.

    Any administration could function perfectly well without a single Jew (or Catholic). I won't even mention Asians, blacks ....

    Earl Butz was the last honest man in American politics.

    So, what did the man say?

    1.) In 1974, a reporter asked Butz about Pope Paul VI’s opposition to using artificial contraception as a means to assuage world hunger. Butz replied, in effect, that the pope’s rejection of this approach was of little interest because Pope Paul had already stated, in a 1968 encyclical, that artificial contraception violated church law under any circumstances. Here’s how he put it: “He no play-a da game, he no make-a da rules.”

    2.) The 1976 joke was made in the presence of Pat Boone, Sonny Bono (no longer with Cher, but not yet a member of Congress), and John Dean. The four men were traveling first class on a commercial flight to California after the Republican National Convention. The ever-earnest Boone asked Butz why Republicans were unable to attract more blacks to their party. Rather than explain that Nixon’s “southern strategy” deliberately drew disaffected white voters away from the Democratic party with coded racist messages likely to offend blacks, Butz decided to lighten the mood with an extremely racist (not to mention very old) joke. “The only thing the coloreds are looking for in life,” Butz quipped, “are tight pussy, loose shoes, and a warm place to shit.” Dean was not known as a keeper of confidences. He’d provided crucial testimony against the Nixon White House in the Watergate scandal, and it happened that he was working on a piece about the convention for Rolling Stone. Butz knew this, but such was his confidence in the warm embrace of his conviviality that he made the wisecrack anyway. Dean put it in his story, and Butz was promptly fired.

    Another thing to consider in the upcoming strife. Modern cars/trucks, large appliances, TVs, HVAC/control systems, etc. increasingly are part of the internet of things. I suspect it's already feasible for the System to send out a kill signal and disable a car remotely, for example (pretty sure they can do that with OnStar). Most likely all of these essential items have back doors so that the System (whether it is Unit 8200 or their domestic subsidiary) can sabotage any potential saboteurs.

    You might also recall a book that was published in the 90s by a dissident named Thomas Chittum: Civil War II. Chittum thought that the most likely scenario was that military hardware would leak out the back, as it were, either through corrupt or ideologically committed supply sergeants.

    The history of the Jews in India reaches back to ancient times. Judaism was one of the first foreign religions to arrive in India in recorded history. Indian Jews are a religious minority of India, but, unlike many parts of the world, have historically lived in India without any instances of anti-Semitism from the local majority populace. The better-established ancient communities have assimilated many local traditions through cultural diffusion. While some Jews state their ancestors arrived in India during the time of the Kingdom of Judah, others identify themselves as descendants of Israel's Ten Lost Tribes. It is estimated that India's Jewish population peaked at around 20,000 in the mid-1940s, and began to rapidly decline due to their emigration to Israel after its creation in 1948.

    The insides of most Protestant churches resemble courthouses or town halls, and the focal point of their services is a serious exhortation from a man in a black gown
     
    Actually, it is the other way. Civic institutions were set up to imitate religious institutions to create an atmosphere of seriousness (and induce fear/loyalty/morality/ethics etc., virtues) . Heck, that is why the courts insist on using Latin words and phrases when English would serve well and be easily understood. Now we have churches that have given up on Latin but courts use it. It is the same reason college commencement ceremonies involve strange gowns and head coverings.

    Replies: @James O'Meara

    True, but that’s not why they STILL insist on using Latin. Lawyers, at least in the Anglo-American tradition, love all that mystery and ceremony in itself; like precedent, they do/use it because they’ve always done/used it.

    Also, as I’ve pointed out several times, lawyers are lazy, bone idle gits. Why re-invent the wheel? Everything with them is forms, templates, models, etc. That way you don’t have to actually do anything (hence paralegals, AI, online DIY etc.) and you don’t run the risk of making a mistake.

    Look at the second impeachment. On the one hand, it’s necessary to prevent Trump from launching nukes. On the other, let’s wait til after Biden’s inauguration (even though Trump is out of office). Oh, and then, let’s wait till next week. Etc. Impeaching Trump 6 months after he leaves office is Peak Lawyering.

    First- Jews. I don't see that their disproportional success & creativity in some sciences, finances & entertainment should translate into very visible & influential US politics' positions, in this case Biden's crucial cabinet members. What, after all, is the ability for government? Probably the most gifted member of Stalin's ruling elite was Beria, a Mingrelian; I don't know any Mingrelian great contribution to culture or science- yet, apart from being a psychopath, Beria had been the most capable member of Stalin's gang.

    Equally, I don't see that US Jews should be given an almost hereditary position in the US Treasury Department; nor in the Mid East "peace process". On the contrary, they should be, because of their potentially suspicious loyalties re these sensitive issues, be excluded by default.

    And- which are the criteria for ability & talent for these highest government jobs? From what we know, most highest officials in the US, UK, France, Russia, Italy, Sweden, ...are & have been no more than opportunistic trash, "qualified" only because of boot licking, spinelessness & in the case of Jews, tribal loyalties.

    Then, WASPs. Who are they?

    I tend to agree with Christopher Hitchens:

    “Actual class struggles apart, one of the aesthetic ways you could prove that there was a class system in America was by cogitating on the word, or acronym, 'WASP.' First minted by E. Digby Baltzell in his book The Protestant Establishment , the term stood for 'White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.' Except that, as I never grew tired of pointing out, the 'W' was something of a redundancy (there being by definition no BASPs or JASPs for anyone to be confused with, or confused about). 'ASP,' on the other hand, lacked some of the all-important tone. There being so relatively few Anglo-Saxon Catholics in the United States, the 'S' [sic] was arguably surplus to requirements as well. But then the acronym AS would scarcely do, either. And it would raise an additional difficulty. If 'Anglo-Saxon' descent was the qualifying thing, which surely it was, then why were George Wallace and Jerry Falwell not WASPs? After all, they were not merely white and Anglo-Saxon and Protestant, but very emphatic about all three things. Whereas a man like William F. Buckley, say, despite being a white Irish Catholic, radiated the very sort of demeanor for which the word WASP had been coined to begin with. So, for the matter of that, did the dapper gentleman from Richmond, Virginia, Tom Wolfe. Could it be, then, that WASP was really a term of class rather than ethnicity?  
     
    Are as diverse cultural-ideological groups as Mormons, Unitarian Universalists, Congregationalists, Adventists, Quakers, Christian Scientists ... WASPs, even if most of them are of British & Northern European ancestry?

    I am not so sure.

    That was Gore Vidal’s point about his fateful encounter with Norman Podhoretz at that cocktail party. Vidal said he was writing a book about the Civil War, and Podhoretz said “The Civil War is as distant to me as the War of the Roses.”

    Ideally, that would be America’s attitude to the Holocaust (something no American did to any American in America, so why a Holocaust Museum in Washington?), Irish independence, “Greater Serbia,” Czarist pogroms against great-grandma’s shtetl, etc.

    And the historic WASP ethno-aristocracy managed to maintain solidarity and control, and kept Jews and non-WASP whites out of the power structure until the early 1950s. They lost it because they basically decided to retire their power and pass the scepter to another group of people. Their hold on power was always resented by Jews and intelligent non-WASP whites like Nixon and Lyndon Johnson. IQ supremacists who wanted to open up the Ivy League and the Seven Sisters who they accused of not accepting high IQ non-WASP played a very big part in this diversification of the previous ethno-aristocratic WASP elite. In a country with an individualistic culture having a very diverse elite whose only thing in common will be high IQ will result in individualistic elites.

    The history of the Jews in India reaches back to ancient times. Judaism was one of the first foreign religions to arrive in India in recorded history. Indian Jews are a religious minority of India, but, unlike many parts of the world, have historically lived in India without any instances of anti-Semitism from the local majority populace. The better-established ancient communities have assimilated many local traditions through cultural diffusion. While some Jews state their ancestors arrived in India during the time of the Kingdom of Judah, others identify themselves as descendants of Israel’s Ten Lost Tribes. It is estimated that India’s Jewish population peaked at around 20,000 in the mid-1940s, and began to rapidly decline due to their emigration to Israel after its creation in 1948.

Because of the shifted IQ curve of Ashkenazi Jews they may only be 2% of the US population but if you look at people with IQs over 130 they are probably more like 20% and as such 2 Jewish Supreme Ct. justices out of 9 are right in line with the % of Jewish Nobel Prize winners, chess champions, billionaires, etc.

    1.) That they have read the Constitution.

Neither the recipients of these names nor their immigrant parents probably had any idea who John Milton was. Just that someone who spoke and read better English than they did (their rabbi, maybe or someone at the settlement house) would look at the list and tell them to put down Milton as little Mottel's first name on his birth certificate.

    Nixon and Johnson were WASPS, both English or Anglo descent Protestant. Nixon was raised Quaker, the absolute epitome of WASPYNESS. I believe he and his family were Prespterians however it’s spelled. Van Buren was Dutch on his father’s side so I guess he wasn’t a WASP.

    The Roosevelts had so many WASP ancestors the Dutch DNA was heavily diluted. The Delano French ancestors arrived in America in the 1600s and married only Puritan WASPS.

    Harding was alleged to have some negro ancestry. What’s 1/31 negro the rest WASP?

    Southern trailer parks and projects are full of WASPS.

    Butz also wound up drunk in a DC fountain with some floozie.

    Replies: @James O'Meara

    Earl Butz was the last honest man in American politics.

    So, what did the man say?

    1.) In 1974, a reporter asked Butz about Pope Paul VI’s opposition to using artificial contraception as a means to assuage world hunger. Butz replied, in effect, that the pope’s rejection of this approach was of little interest because Pope Paul had already stated, in a 1968 encyclical, that artificial contraception violated church law under any circumstances. Here’s how he put it: “He no play-a da game, he no make-a da rules.”

    2.) The 1976 joke was made in the presence of Pat Boone, Sonny Bono (no longer with Cher, but not yet a member of Congress), and John Dean. The four men were traveling first class on a commercial flight to California after the Republican National Convention. The ever-earnest Boone asked Butz why Republicans were unable to attract more blacks to their party. Rather than explain that Nixon’s “southern strategy” deliberately drew disaffected white voters away from the Democratic party with coded racist messages likely to offend blacks, Butz decided to lighten the mood with an extremely racist (not to mention very old) joke. “The only thing the coloreds are looking for in life,” Butz quipped, “are tight pussy, loose shoes, and a warm place to shit.” Dean was not known as a keeper of confidences. He’d provided crucial testimony against the Nixon White House in the Watergate scandal, and it happened that he was working on a piece about the convention for Rolling Stone. Butz knew this, but such was his confidence in the warm embrace of his conviviality that he made the wisecrack anyway. Dean put it in his story, and Butz was promptly fired.

    I disagree with the unstated premise of your assertion--that we will be better positioned in future elections. By successfully stealing this election in the most patently obvious manner, while using their monolithic control of the means of propaganda and communication to gaslight the masses and prohibit discussion of this robbery, except in fringe blogs (which they can and will cut off at any time), the system has pulled off a color revolution in the USA. Not only is it incredibly demoralizing to realize that your votes do not matter, the System is planning to stuff the ballot box in the future in irreversible ways: mass amnesty (and no, it is not 11M, probably at least 25-30M and counting) of brown future Democratic hordes; destruction of all border and interior immigration enforcement; permanent changes in election laws to allow early voting, mail-in ballots, ballot harvesting; adding D.C. and Puerto Rico as "states"; and probably more things I haven't thought about.

    This entire country has now been remade into California. The only way out will be secession, which will involve a shooting war. Hence the Evil Party will press forward with stepped-up efforts to disarm the population. Ammunition already is hard to get; expect 1000 pct excise taxes on ammunition, as well as "assault weapon" bans, all upheld by a cowardly SCOTUS. And the stepped-up misuse of law enforcement as a weapon against the White working class while, at the same time, giving a pass to their own shock troops (what Sam Francis called "anarcho-tyranny"). We've seen that in the past year--when has the FBI or the DOJ given a shit about the BLM and Antifa riots? Or the J20 from January 2017, where a (Jewish) federal judge deliberately sabotaged the prosecution, with the result that all the Antifa rioters were let off.

    Pol Pot is their model. Or perhaps the early Bolshevik era, read MacDonald's Stalin's Willing Executioners. Expect mass tyranny and mass bloodshed. I fear the future.

    But I think you are understating/not accounting for the demographic tidal wave. The trend is very much in favor of the Evil Party. Just as one example, the White fraction of Georgia's electorate is drastically smaller than it was as recently as 2008. There are suburban Atlanta counties that were overwhelmingly White in 1990 that are overwhelmingly black today. Newt Gingrich could not possibly run a competitive race in his old district, for instance. Similar trends are occurring in Texas. And have already occurred in Virginia and North Carolina.

    The mail-in and ballot harvesting schemes are now being institutionalized everywhere. And the consolidation of media power is complete. (The seeds were sown during Clinton's presidency, when the federal government decreed that it would no longer enforce antitrust restrictions on media consolidation, and the number of large media companies collapsed from ~30 to 6 in short order.) The media has always been an evil, mendacious force, but its power is greater now than ever before. There is no political solution available.

    Talking of precedent, Andrew McCarthy, a legal scholar, writes this:

    ... I have long adhered to the originalist argument that government officials, including the president, may properly be impeached after they have left office. In addition to colonial impeachment provisions, I recounted in Faithless Execution that the Framers were influenced by the British impeachment experience. Their contemporary example was Warren Hastings, whose impeachment by Parliament, led by Edmund Burke and based on high crimes and misdemeanors, occurred after Hastings was no longer Britain’s governor-general of Bengal.

    I happen to strongly agree with you but there are arguments to be made the other way and you will hear them from Democrats a lot in coming days.

    Apparently at some point in the 19th century the House did impeach a cabinet secretary AFTER he resigned, which Democrats are citing as precedent for doing so again. However, he (Sec. of War Belknap) was acquitted in the Senate because 23 of the 25 Senators who voted for acquittal felt that, even though Belknap was guilty as charged by the House, the Senate did not have jurisdiction to try an EX officer. Which makes Belknap a lousy precedent.

    My prediction is that the impeachment will once again fail in the Senate although this time the Dems may get a few Republicans to defect. But not enough to convict. The wind has gone out of the sails of impeachment with Trump gone and will be even more deflated in a couple of weeks more. Trump will have a pro-forma trial lasting a day or two in which Democrats will blow a lot of smoke, the Senate will vote to acquit and that will be that.

Neither the recipients of these names nor their immigrant parents probably had any idea who John Milton was. Just that someone who spoke and read better English than they did (their rabbi, maybe or someone at the settlement house) would look at the list and tell them to put down Milton as little Mottel’s first name on his birth certificate.

    Protestants are definitely getting the short end of the stick but as I have noted before wrt the Supreme Court, the Catholics are doing even better than the Jews but seem to garner less resentment among the Unz crowd – “the Jews are taking over” type remarks must run 100 to 1 against “the Catholics are taking over”
     
    Because Jews are far more overrepresented on the Supreme Court than are the Catholics - even now. And will still be overrepresented even if Breyer retires and is replaced by a non-Jewish justice.

    Jews are 2-3% of the population. They are 22% of the Court. They were 33% of the Court. If Merrick Garland had been confirmed they would have been 44% of the Court.

    Even with just one Jewish Justice they would still be 4-5x their share of the population.

    Catholics are about 20% of the US population, but 66% of the Court. So definitely more than their share, but not ridiculously so, as with Jews.

    I suspect there are two reasons for why there are so many Catholics now. First, Protestant justices have been disappointments for conservatives. In some cases, severe disappointments (e.g., David Souter). Second, Protestantism has split between non- or anti-intellectual contingents (Evangelicals) and politically correct contingents (Episcopalians, etc.). It sadly doesn't leave you much to work with.

    I agree with that thought, but that will raise a whole bunch of headaches. Since the charge is Insurrection, once he is acquitted, assuming it sets a precedent, no one can ever be convicted of anything. How can any crime or misdemeanor be argued as being worse than insurrection? That pretty much means conviction after impeachment becomes impossible and impeachment, all by itself, will become a strong censure motion. That leaves Nixon as the only guy in history who was sent home for fear of conviction after an impeachment.

No golden light, no bells, incense, and candles. No mystery upon an altar or behind an iconostasis. But people brought up in this atmosphere seem to love it. It feels warm and folksy, and leads, on the one hand, to hospitals, prison reform, and votes for all, and, on the other, to sheer genius for drabness, plain cooking ungraced with wine, and constipation of the bright emotions—all of which are considered virtues.

    "If I try to set aside the innate prejudices which I feel against this religion, I begin to marvel at the depth of its commitment to earnestness and ugliness. For there is a point at which certain types of ugliness become fascinating, where one feels drawn to going over them again and again, much as the tongue keeps fondling a hole in a tooth. I begin to realize that those incredibly plain people, with their almost unique lack of color, may after all be one of the most astonishing reaches of the divine Maya-the Dancer of the world as far out from himself as he can get, dancing not-dancing."

    But you're just fooling yourself (or trying to fool us) if you believe that Supreme Court justices are simply supposed to be a relfection of the best legal talent in America.

    Even on those grounds it's dubious, since admittees to"the top law schools" are not necessarily selected in an unbiased manner. It helps to have the "right" contacts, the "right" political beliefs, the "right" resume working for the "right" causes. White Protestants need not apply.

    Biden won't be running for a second term and there's no dynasty in his family's future. He has no reason to keep that promise, and he probably won't.

    All of the most powerful positions in Biden's administration, apart from Defense, have gone to Jews. Literally all of them. I'm no big fan of ZOG conspiracy theories, but this sure as hell doesn't strike me as merely chance. For whatever reason, he feels loyal to Jews - or someone has dirt on him. And a Supreme Court seat is hands down the most powerful appointment a president can make. One justice can overturn the will of tens of millions of voters. If the same interests that gave Jews all but one of the most powerful positions in Biden's admin want the next SCOTUS nominee to be Jewish, then he or she will be.

    The people who will be probably advising Joe Biden who to pick - Merrick Garland and Ron Klain - are both Jewish. Also, Stephen Breyer is the next likely retirement, but he doesn't appear to have any pressing health reasons that would require him to do so. It's possible Biden could finish his term without a single Supreme Court opening. But if Biden promised Breyer to choose a nominee who was a little more like himself, Breyer might retire willingly.

    In an earlier thread I joked that Biden - in keeping with the fact that four out of the last five Dem SCOTUS nominees have been Jewish - will probably pick a nominee who is both black and Jewish. Well one name that apparently has already come up is Leondra Kruger, a California Supreme Court justice, who is - wouldn't you know it? - half black and half Jewish.

Just as one example, the White fraction of Georgia’s electorate is drastically smaller than it was as recently as 2008. There are suburban Atlanta counties that were overwhelmingly White in 1990 that are overwhelmingly black today. Newt Gingrich could not possibly run a competitive race in his old district, for instance. Similar trends are occurring in Texas. And have already occurred in Virginia and North Carolina.

    The mail-in and ballot harvesting schemes are now being institutionalized everywhere. And the consolidation of media power is complete. (The seeds were sown during Clinton’s presidency, when the federal government decreed that it would no longer enforce antitrust restrictions on media consolidation, and the number of large media companies collapsed from ~30 to 6 in short order.) The media has always been an evil, mendacious force, but its power is greater now than ever before. There is no political solution available.

    Biden won’t be running for a second term and there’s no dynasty in his family’s future. He has no reason to keep that promise, and he probably won’t.

    All of the most powerful positions in Biden’s administration, apart from Defense, have gone to Jews. Literally all of them. I’m no big fan of ZOG conspiracy theories, but this sure as hell doesn’t strike me as merely chance. For whatever reason, he feels loyal to Jews – or someone has dirt on him. And a Supreme Court seat is hands down the most powerful appointment a president can make. One justice can overturn the will of tens of millions of voters. If the same interests that gave Jews all but one of the most powerful positions in Biden’s admin want the next SCOTUS nominee to be Jewish, then he or she will be.

    The people who will be probably advising Joe Biden who to pick – Merrick Garland and Ron Klain – are both Jewish. Also, Stephen Breyer is the next likely retirement, but he doesn’t appear to have any pressing health reasons that would require him to do so. It’s possible Biden could finish his term without a single Supreme Court opening. But if Biden promised Breyer to choose a nominee who was a little more like himself, Breyer might retire willingly.

    In an earlier thread I joked that Biden – in keeping with the fact that four out of the last five Dem SCOTUS nominees have been Jewish – will probably pick a nominee who is both black and Jewish.

    Even on those grounds it's dubious, since admittees to"the top law schools" are not necessarily selected in an unbiased manner. It helps to have the "right" contacts, the "right" political beliefs, the "right" resume working for the "right" causes. White Protestants need not apply.

    The U.S. has been largely de-industrialized.
    Detroit has half the population it did in its heyday, and similarly for other once proud centers of U.S. industry.

    U.S.’ proudest “industrial products” these days are overpriced, overengineered, semi functional war machines built to counter a threat that no longer exists, and charged to the national Mastercard.
    Whiz bang technology in search of a phantom “enemy,” which repudiates all efforts at peaceful coexistence by modern regimes, and cozies up to medieval dictatorships, either found or created by itself.

    I happen to strongly agree with you but there are arguments to be made the other way and you will hear them from Democrats a lot in coming days.

    Apparently at some point in the 19th century the House did impeach a cabinet secretary AFTER he resigned, which Democrats are citing as precedent for doing so again. However, he (Sec. of War Belknap) was acquitted in the Senate because 23 of the 25 Senators who voted for acquittal felt that, even though Belknap was guilty as charged by the House, the Senate did not have jurisdiction to try an EX officer. Which makes Belknap a lousy precedent.

    My prediction is that the impeachment will once again fail in the Senate although this time the Dems may get a few Republicans to defect. But not enough to convict. The wind has gone out of the sails of impeachment with Trump gone and will be even more deflated in a couple of weeks more. Trump will have a pro-forma trial lasting a day or two in which Democrats will blow a lot of smoke, the Senate will vote to acquit and that will be that.

    Then the Dems can work on getting rid of the filibuster. Did you know that the filibuster is racist?

    But not enough to convict

    I agree with that thought, but that will raise a whole bunch of headaches. Since the charge is Insurrection, once he is acquitted, assuming it sets a precedent, no one can ever be convicted of anything. How can any crime or misdemeanor be argued as being worse than insurrection? That pretty much means conviction after impeachment becomes impossible and impeachment, all by itself, will become a strong censure motion. That leaves Nixon as the only guy in history who was sent home for fear of conviction after an impeachment.

    It doesn’t make sense to look at the # of Jews and Catholics on the Supreme Ct. in relation to the overall population but rather in relation to the relevant talent pool (i.e. graduates of top law schools) just as it makes sense to analyze the NFL and the NBA in relation to their talent pools.

     

    But you're just fooling yourself (or trying to fool us) if you believe that Supreme Court justices are simply supposed to be a relfection of the best legal talent in America.

    Even on those grounds it's dubious, since admittees to"the top law schools" are not necessarily selected in an unbiased manner. It helps to have the "right" contacts, the "right" political beliefs, the "right" resume working for the "right" causes. White Protestants need not apply.

    The Supreme Court is a political body which all too often substitutes its own political preferences for those of the voters, sometimes (see: Plyler v. Doe) with a tremendous impact on who the voters even are.

    Replies: @Ed, @Prof. Woland, @Mr. Anon

    You are quite right. Who cares if they are top legal minds? It’s not like they have to worry about having their decisions overturned – not by another court at least. Anyway, all too often, a “top legal mind” is just an able sociopath who is good at using the law to screw people over.

    My requirements for Supreme Court Justice are simply these:

    1.) That they have read the Constitution.

    2.) That they understand it.

    3.) That they agree with it.

    4.) That they have some fondness for the traditional American nation (even though it now no longer exists)

    My guess is that only three or four of the sitting justices meet those requirements. If even that many.

    The only thing that will get you ejected from the J clan and make you persona non grata is conversion to Christianity. The essence of Judaism is anti-Christianity. You can be a Buddhist, an atheist, an agnostic or anything else.

    I wonder if that was always the case. Think of the composer Mahler, who got a big push in the mid-20th Century from lefty Jews such as Leonard Bernstein and nowadays is very high in the classical canon (certainly higher than in his own time). Mahler converted to Catholicism. Think Resurrection Symphony.

    Alan Dershowitz, of all people, agrees. He writes in The Vanishing American Jew: “In America, and in other nations that separate church from state, one’s Jewishness is a matter of self-definition and anyone who wants to be considered a Jew or a half Jew, or a partial Jew or a person of Jewish heritage has a right to be so considered.” Everyone can become Jew if he has “Jewish blood,” but Christians, Dershowitz clarifies, are not entitled to this definition. “I do not mean to include former Jews who practice Christianity under the deliberately misleading name of Jews for Jesus. A Jew for Jesus already has a name: a Christian.” Jewish scholar Jacob Neusner concurs, saying that “Jews who practice Christianity cease to be part of the ethnic Jewish community, while those who practice Buddhism remain within.”

    It probably won't be a "shooting war." Rather, more of a "sabotaging infrastructure war." Blue cities have become more fragile over the past several decades -- more third-world immigrants, aging population, and obsolete infrastructure.

    You also have asymmetric conditions for victory. Red Counties can starve out Blue Cities; Blue Cities have to occupy a nation of Red Counties (with Red County soldiers, no less). Take California. How many people would it take to knock out some major bridges, a few interstate choke points, and some aqueducts? Maybe set a dozen or so forest fires as well? It wouldn't take a large force to do it. California would be uninhabitable.

    I suspect it's for this reason why the Feds are so adamant about clamping down at the slightest sign of rebellion on the right. If there is overt rebellion or even a serious insurgency, the federal government will be quickly toppled. It seems absurd to an outsider, as if a guy in a Buffalo helmet is any direct threat to our government. But once you see the dynamic, it makes more sense.

    Another thing to consider in the upcoming strife. Modern cars/trucks, large appliances, TVs, HVAC/control systems, etc. increasingly are part of the internet of things. I suspect it’s already feasible for the System to send out a kill signal and disable a car remotely, for example (pretty sure they can do that with OnStar). Most likely all of these essential items have back doors so that the System (whether it is Unit 8200 or their domestic subsidiary) can sabotage any potential saboteurs.

    You might also recall a book that was published in the 90s by a dissident named Thomas Chittum: Civil War II. Chittum thought that the most likely scenario was that military hardware would leak out the back, as it were, either through corrupt or ideologically committed supply sergeants. Haven’t seen any evidence of that yet.

    The biggest cities in each state control the politics. NYC Philadelphia Chicago St Louis and Kansas City Little Rock Portland Milwaukee St Paul Minneapolis Full of blacks and liberals.

    The northwest refugee was a fantasy. For the last 50 years, farm country means hordes of Hispanic farm workers. Yakima Tacoma. Idaho potato planters harvesters packers and in the processing factories are Hispanic illegals.

    Did Covington ever travel to the PNW of his fantasies? Did he know that all those blue eyed blondish Scandinavians were hard core socialists when they arrived 150 years ago? Did he ever notice who actually does the farm work?

    Moscow Idaho home of the university. U of Idaho is as lunatic liberal as the rest of the universities and rules the town the way Michigan rules Ann Arbor and U of Wisconsin rules the capital Madison

    If you’ve ever wondered why Portland is so crazy it’s because it’s a college town. The lunatic liberal profs indoctrinate the students. The students can’t get jobs because of affirmative action so hang around till they’re 50 rioting.

    Between farm workers, Scandinavian socialists and the cities, the PNW is as lost as the rest of the country.

    Thanks Steve.

    Yes, we WASPs have been dispossessed.

    Everything was racial/ethnic - not Liberal vs Conservative.

    Wilmot Robertson's "The Dispossessed Majority" - featured here on the Unz Review (thank you Mr. Unz) does the best job of describing how our dispossession happened.

    SH*** like American Irish Catholics maintaining a chip on the shoulder "We're not White" , "The English WASPs oppressed the same as they did colonial coloreds" - that mindset and voting set went on pretty much up through the 1970s forced busing crisis in South Boston and then American Irish Catholics finally decided that

    "Yeah, we're White".

    But, still it lingers on.

    I think the 2016 national Democrat convention had the only heterosexual White guy allowed to speak with the Irish mayor of Boston MA.

    If anybody wants to get a first hand account what it's like trying to escape in to the once White world of the Church of Latter Day Saint Mormons, I can share my experiences. At first, OK, not bad, but later - terrible.

    No, it's actual Sephardic Jewish ancestry, as I've explained in the past. All Puerto Ricans, like AOC, have it. As for Isabel Guzman, who has ancestry from the Mexican state of Jalisco and from Texas, those are two of the other most Sephardic regions for Catholics in Latin America.

    George also said: "I noticed they do not mention a vague Muslim or North African ancestry."
     
    Puerto Ricans do have more North African DNA than average in Latin America due to immigration from the Canary Islands, whose population is partly made up of descendants of the Guanches.

    RadicalCenter also said: "Even assuming these particular Royalty aren’t at all Sephardic, Ashkenazi Jews are typically more Semitic than European (although genetic studies suggest they are often as much as FORTY percent Italian)."
     
    I've already addressed these incorrect ideas in the past. First, the Italian portion of the European ancestry in Ashkenazim has been exaggerated; some of it's Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Polish instead. Second, Sephardic ancestry does exist among nearly all Ashkenazim aside from an isolated cluster of Jews from a part of Germany.

    Protestants are definitely getting the short end of the stick but as I have noted before wrt the Supreme Court, the Catholics are doing even better than the Jews but seem to garner less resentment among the Unz crowd - "the Jews are taking over" type remarks must run 100 to 1 against "the Catholics are taking over", even though there is an actual Catholic in the White House right now and there has never been a Jewish POTUS. Old fashioned nativists used to rant and rave about how Catholics would take orders from the Pope, etc. but that seems to have faded completely - even among the most reactionary grandpas here nary a word was said about Biden's possible divided loyalty whereas Jewish politicians are frequently accused of being loyal to Israel.

    George said: “Hispanic Jewishness. I noticed many Hispanics, like Guzman & AOC, are claiming a vague Jewish ancestry which I interpret to mean a vague Iberian Moorish ancestry.”

    No, it’s actual Sephardic Jewish ancestry, as I’ve explained in the past. All Puerto Ricans, like AOC, have it. As for Isabel Guzman, who has ancestry from the Mexican state of Jalisco and from Texas, those are two of the other most Sephardic regions for Catholics in Latin America.

    George also said: “I noticed they do not mention a vague Muslim or North African ancestry.”

    Puerto Ricans do have more North African DNA than average in Latin America due to immigration from the Canary Islands, whose population is partly made up of descendants of the Guanches.

    I’ve already addressed these incorrect ideas in the past. First, the Italian portion of the European ancestry in Ashkenazim has been exaggerated; some of it’s Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Polish instead. Second, Sephardic ancestry does exist among nearly all Ashkenazim aside from an isolated cluster of Jews from a part of Germany.

    But I think you are understating/not accounting for the demographic tidal wave. The trend is very much in favor of the Evil Party. Just as one example, the White fraction of Georgia's electorate is drastically smaller than it was as recently as 2008. There are suburban Atlanta counties that were overwhelmingly White in 1990 that are overwhelmingly black today. Newt Gingrich could not possibly run a competitive race in his old district, for instance. Similar trends are occurring in Texas. And have already occurred in Virginia and North Carolina.

    The mail-in and ballot harvesting schemes are now being institutionalized everywhere. And the consolidation of media power is complete. (The seeds were sown during Clinton's presidency, when the federal government decreed that it would no longer enforce antitrust restrictions on media consolidation, and the number of large media companies collapsed from ~30 to 6 in short order.) The media has always been an evil, mendacious force, but its power is greater now than ever before. There is no political solution available.

    So, representation matters now? That's very progressive of you.

    The last 5 Republican nominations to the Supreme Court have been all white Catholics. This group is maybe 20% of the US population. The last one before that was Thomas, a black catholic (1% or less). The Dems aren't any better, for sure, with all of their nominations being white Jews (1% or less) and hispanic Catholics (10% or less of the population).

    I think the protestant/catholic difference is largely one of personality. I did ancestry.com a few years ago and from what I can tell my ancestors ditched catholicism as soon as an alternative arose. My guess would be that they naturally disrespect the silly costumes, endless, meaningless showiness of it. I’m the same way. I’m just naturally repulsed by all of that foolishness, the stupid outfits of the hierarchy, the ornate, incredibly expensive buildings built by donations of poor people. Nobody would read the gospels and think that is what jesus had in mind.

    Catholics seem to care more about titles and hierarchy. They would rather be the worst executive in history than a really good accountant. They flock to occupations that have a lot of ritual and I’d guess that’s why there are a lot of catholic judges. I’d never want to be a judge, I understand they need to exist but it’s a necessary evil.

    Alan Dershowitz, of all people, agrees. He writes in The Vanishing American Jew: “In America, and in other nations that separate church from state, one’s Jewishness is a matter of self-definition and anyone who wants to be considered a Jew or a half Jew, or a partial Jew or a person of Jewish heritage has a right to be so considered.” Everyone can become Jew if he has “Jewish blood,” but Christians, Dershowitz clarifies, are not entitled to this definition. “I do not mean to include former Jews who practice Christianity under the deliberately misleading name of Jews for Jesus. A Jew for Jesus already has a name: a Christian.” Jewish scholar Jacob Neusner concurs, saying that “Jews who practice Christianity cease to be part of the ethnic Jewish community, while those who practice Buddhism remain within.”

    protestant = the just shall live by faith in the so called “god’s people”
