Shouldn’t be hard to find …

Of course, there’s also Kamala’s alliance with Jussie Smollett:

An interesting question is how long until an American political party nominates on its national ticket somebody descended from American slaves. So far they just nominate the children of foreign grad students.

  1. You should also make fun of this :

    The WWF wrestler from the 90s, ‘Kamala the Ugandan Giant’, actually had the real last name ‘Harris’.

    He passed away just two days ago, at the age of 70.

    There was a real ‘Kamala Harris’ 30 years ago :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamala_(wrestler)

    To think, the first ‘Kamala Harris’ passed away on the very day (give or take a day) that the second ‘Kamala Harris’ might have been appointed on the Veep slot which is effectively the top of the Dem ticket in this election.

    What a coincidence. This is truly an immense coincidence.

    Obama pretended to be a Kenyan when he needed to, and an American when he needed that. So Kamala "the Ugandan" has precedent.

    Last week we heard Trump wanted to be on Mount Rushmore. Willie Brown has apparently already beat him to it:

    https://people.com/archive/no-mere-mayor-vol-45-no-25/

    ‘Brown reserves some of the swagger for his social life. Named one of the world’s 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine in 1984, he “has had a succession of girlfriends,” according to James Richardson, a Sacramento Bee reporter whose biography of Brown hits stores next fall. “The measure of his flamboyance is he’ll go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.” As for Brown, he only requests that his date “absolutely be the best-dressed woman in the room.”

    At his 60th-birthday party in 1994, hosted by George Hamilton and attended by such high-profile supporters as Barbra Streisand, Brown got his just desserts. “They gave me a cake about eight feet high,” he recalls, flashing a Golden Gate grin. “It was Mount Rushmore with my head added. When I blew out the candles, I wished those other fellows were removed.”’

  7. OK, I had to get my memory in gear and look up some stuff to see what you were getting at, Steve. Biden fulfilled his promise, eh? This bodes well for President Trump if he’d maybe just do a few small things that match what Candidate Trump promised.

    Both female VP candidates in history so far lost their elections. However Geraldine in 1984 was possibly a Hail Mary by Walter Mondale who was gonna get slaughtered by my man Ronnie anyway. Sarah was the only possible way to get me to vote for the traitorous bastard John McCain, but I just couldn’t be sure he’d die within the period allotted, so I voted L as usual.

    "Both"? How can you forget Tonie? Theodora Nathalia Nathan Nathan. (Can you beat that for convenience in politics? Her maiden name was also her married name.)


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonie_Nathan

    She and her running mate John Hospers lived into their 90s, long outliving Roger MacBride, the much younger Elector who put them in the history books.

    This guy claims all three were queer:

    Roger McBride, in memorium

    He doesn't say how he would know, other than underground gossip. Mrs/Miss Nathan's bio kind of sheds doubt on this. I'd read that MacBride's daughter was adopted, so maybe... Abigail MacBride inherited the rights to the Little House franchise from her father, who was bequeathed them by the childless Rose Wilder Lane. Along with her libertarian worldview.


    However Geraldine in 1984 was possibly a Hail Mary by Walter Mondale...
     
    A lousy choice for that. She added no balance to the ticket; if anything, she lost him her own state, and almost his as well. Reagan did better there than Hillary. (And don't blame third parties. There were just as many in 1984.)

    My mother grew up just a few blocks from Geraldine. Her reaction to the nomination? "She's married to a slumlord!"

    I don't know if New Yorkers add anything to the ticket. Miller did little for Goldwater, and Ford ditched Rocky for Bobdole.

    I would say, wrong on pretty much every level. I was surprised by this, as Biden seemingly told Rice she was the pick and she sold all her Netflix stock.

    But no, this is the result of the power struggle within the Democratic Party. The old Rockefeller group of RINOS forced Bush onto Reagan. This is the House of Clinton (Harris) prevailing over the House of Obama (Rice) for the control of the Party and Presidency.

    The Democratic VP pick will be the next President. Biden not might make it past a week of his inauguration. Of course, Trump has ZERO chance of winning. Mail in ballots, and White women voters will see to that.

    This is about what politics is all about: power and money. Who will be looting whom before everything collapses with President AOC. Or Ilhan Omar. [Who cares about a Constitution written by dead White males, many of whom ... horrors ... owned slaves!]

    Defund the police is a fait accompli. Seattle has done it. Chicago is the midst of doing it. Minneapolis is doing it. Portland has done it. DC is doing it. NYC has done it. Los Angeles has done it. Every city in America will do it, to some degree. And Soros has elected most of the DAs in the country, and they are simply not prosecuting any crime committed by black people.

    Suppose President Harris decides to "get tough" on crime ... what cop will do anything but drive and wave? All the local DAs will refuse to press any charges and no federal prosecutor will face the wrath of Soros and the alphabet soup of NGOs on the side of black criminals. President Harris will be gone in a few years but a career as a federal prosecutor leads to book deals and the like. Far better to go after a 15 year old White boy for posting something mean on Twitter. Harris won't want to get tough on crime. When has being tough on black crime (which is like 80% of all crime) been popular or a winning strategy with those who matter: bureaucrats, NGOs, the Media, Academics, judges, and the permanent managers and administrators of the public-private fusion?

    Every city in America will be a war zone like Detroit or Baltimore. Its open season for black people to commit any and all crimes. BLM and anti-fa ARE the police with police powers to drag drivers out of cars and beat them or worse on their whims. They ARE the LAW. Backed by DAs and the media and Soros money. That was the whole point of Charlottesville. The test run for a commie take over, Reverse Pinochet style.

    No the real news is that the coffers of the Clinton Foundation are going to be filled up again and the patronage/power machine will be finding new "avenues" for Bill and the Podestas to meet underprivileged 14 year old girls and provide hands-on guidance and mentorship.

  12. Maybe someone can verify the purported quotation about Brown commenting on his relationship with Harris. The version I read was something along the line of:
    “It was a perfect relationship. She loved me, I love me. What more could you ask for?”

    Perhaps the key question might be: can Harris overcome her unfortunate past as a law enforcement official in this, the year of Black Looting Matters?

    It seems that when she was Attorney General of California, she fought to have Swiss Army knives classified as “dirks or daggers,” which are illegal to carry “concealed” (i.e. in your pocket).

    https://kniferights.org/legislative-update/california-supreme-court-affirms-swiss-army-knife-not-an-illegal-dagger/

    I do not know what the rest of her record was like as AG, but clearly, anyone working to make something as innocuous* as a Swiss Army Knife illegal can safely be described as “aggressive” when it comes to enforcing the law.

    Surely this is a liability in in the America of 2020?

    I wonder: could this selection be Biden’s way of giving a wink and a nod to American law enforcement?

    This is incorrect. Swiss Army Knives with a blade length of less than 3 inches (ie all of them) are legal to carry in the UK.
    , @Jack D
    @Anonymous

    First of all, although her name was on the briefs as the AG, she didn't personally "fight" to have Swiss Army knives classified as "daggers". The AG's name is on EVERY case during his/her regime. The AG's office in CA prosecutes thousands of cases. She may not have even known that this case existed. Saying that she "fought" to have Swiss Army knives classified as “dirks or daggers” is the kind of thing that sounds good in an NRA fund raising mailer but it's a gross exaggeration.

    2nd, this is the kind of things that courts must decide all the time. The statute said something about how a folding knife that can be "locked" is the same as a dagger. When you unfold a pocket knife (and for some strange reason when the perp was arrested he was carrying a pocket knife in an UNfolded position concealed in his jacket - this is not something that boy scouts usually do) it clicks into position. Is this "locked" or not? We have our system of prosecution and defense to hash such things out . The prosecution says that it IS "locked" and the defense says that it isn't and the court decides what the word "locked" means. If Kamala had been the Chief Public Defender instead of the AG, her office would have argued the opposite. She was just doing her job - it was not some kind of personal crusade to take away your Swiss Army Knife.

    BTW, this ruling meant that the perp, who did not sound like a very nice person, got off, so I hope you are happy. Very often the cops will catch some bad guy and for some reason they cannot make a case for the real crime that he has committed so they will go for "possession of an illegal weapon" or something as the next best thing (and in this case they had gotten a conviction) but now he gets to go free on appeal because instead of the shitty public defender he now had the Knife Foundation or something like that writing high $ briefs on his behalf. They were never going to prosecute boy scouts carrying pocket knives to begin with.

  23. Harris as VP pick just goes to hammer home the fact that Western democracies have by and large run out of politicians in the mainstream parties. The younger Boomer/Gen X cohorts making their way in now represent people who got into politics after the systems had been put in place to nurture managers not leaders. This is particularly acute on the left since the ‘Washington consensus’, ‘third way’, whatever you want to call the integration of Reganesque Chicago school economics into mainstream centre-left politics. Once you do that, so much has been ‘depoliticised’, so much policy taken out of the realm of politics, what is the point? And non-psychopaths largely turned their backs on politics or were weeded out.

    The ‘must haves’ list for Biden seemed broad enough, a black woman. And in the end the best candidate was Kamala Harris. You wanted to pick somebody to energise people to go to the polls but got somebody so deeply disliked and unlikable (Particularly by actual African-American women) that she will likely have the opposite effect. But who else was there?

    Once Trump and Sanders are gone, who will replace them? We’ve yet to see any third parties start to really build ground, presumably that will begin to happen in 2024 (Whoever wins or in 2022 if Biden wins) as people will generally demand the unexpected outbreak of democracy and democratic choice to continue. (Even for many of those highly passionate about voting against Trump) Surely the time of only hollowmen can’t continue after Trump. But coherent movements representing necessary political realignment haven’t really been successful in forming so far either within smaller geographic areas within the existing main parties or in new third parties with greater geographic spread.

    Otherwise, was looking at the intellectual pedigree of Kamala. The founder of her alma mater American HBCU Howard University is a born-again Christian white guy named Oliver Otis Howard who crushed an Apache insurrection and headed the autocratic “Freedman’s” bureau. He also founded a separate college for “mountain whites”.

    Time has mostly forgotten Howard himself, but not the speech of his enemy: Chief Joseph.

    “Tell General Howard I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart. I am tired of fighting. Our Chiefs are killed; Looking Glass is dead, Ta Hool Hool Shute is dead. The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say yes or no. He who led on the young men is dead. It is cold, and we have no blankets; the little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no blankets, no food. No one knows where they are – perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my Chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever.”

    Kamala is more Canadian (and Indian) than Ugandan. She spent her teenage years in Montreal living with her Indian mother and is an alumnus of (English speaking) Westmount High School. Her black dad (surprise, surprise) did a disappearing act after planting his seed. Kamala will be our 1st S. Asian President.

    It's pretty much her election to lose, and she can still lose it if she embraces crazy woke stuff.

    The fact that Kamala screwed her way to success (despite feminist doctrine, still the best way for a woman to succeed - ask Hillary Clinton) does not seem to have hurt her with the California electorate. Although California is now a one party state ( Harris's opponent in the November 2016 election was the 2nd place Democrat finisher Hispanic lady) there are still elections and Kamala won handily. I suspect the same will be true this November (and it is an axiom of Presidential politics that nobody votes for the VP).

    When you're talking about married women and suburban women, you're basically talking about (relatively) high-IQ women. Living in a suburb as opposed to a ghetto, barrio, or trailer park requires the ability to handle money. While stupid women often marry, their marriages don't last long, so that in any random year if sampled, their response will typically be "not married." Even the woman who drinks white wine and watches the view is a cut above the trailer trash. She likes to fantasize about get railed by the alpha male but is smart enough to know it's a bad idea to actually act out, unlike her stupider trailer-dwelling cousin who got pumped, dumped, and is now raising the kid as a single mom. She's content merely with closing her eyes and imagining that beta bux is the alpha thugboy of her dreams.

    Among this group, the main issues are, in this order:

    1. Not dying of coronavirus.
    2. Not dying of coronavirus.
    3. Not dying of coronavirus.

    If you're trailer trash pursuing a "live fast, die young" reproductive strategy, this seems grotesque. Just imagine they are "robots" programmed with a low discount rate and are thoughtlessly pursuing "logical" ideas to what appears to you to be obviously farcical ends. If you do this, you may be able to develop an accurate model for this behavior.

    I’m thinking this was more about her moderate credentials than attracting blacks. White women are more likely spooked but he sudden crime wave and death of cities situation. Harris being a former DA helps there.

    As for being black (and getting out the black vote) I don’t see it. She’s barely black (that old pic with Brown is classic and totally shows her pallor). Plus, I’m thinking her current Jewish white husband will not be a big selling point in the black community. If there were an actual televised convention, with both couples, they might have to CGI a different and darker mate for her. With the COVID restrictions I doubt we get to see his (lack of) diversity. But the Mr. Harris could very well be the first Jew to live in the White House.

    White women and suburban women will LOVE Harris. That she slept her way to the top is a plus not a minus. Black women won't be too happy about the Jewish husband. But she's probably "black enough" for them.

    Lets not kid ourselves, White suburban moms and professionals love the fantasy of sleeping their way to the top. This pick is a big plus for Biden.

    Being Willie Brown's former ho has literally no downsides for the campaign. Its basically every Harlequin Romance novel ever written, just more real and Kardashian.

    That Harris is bitchy and obnoxious and hypocritical is a plus too -- women and particularly White women love that stuff.

    Harris will likely go all black lives matter and looting are reparations. That's pretty popular among White women in the suburbs. They find it exciting and dangerous like watching the Purge movies and figure their magic femaleness will shield them the way it has among White boys and men they know since they hit puberty. White men were not voting Dem anyway and Dems don't want their votes anyhow.

    My impression here on this webzine, regarding both Steve and Ron, is that they position themselves (and probably internalize it) as smart guys who know Donald Trump is a big, orange joke of a man.

    They have never given him any explicit support, as far as I can tell, whereas a joker like me has gone as far as to copy and paste Trump's campaign website with my handle as if it were my own site and I had something to do with it. (I did that for a while here in 2016, while the "smart guys" pooh-pooh-ed Trump. I was willing to look stupid, whereas they were not.

    Look, I know, and any semi-conscious being knows, that The Donald is a joke, but he is OUR JOKE. You know the line: "They're bastards, but they're OUR bastards." What other choice do we have at this point?

    Regarding this being "her election to lose," as you say, I'm not so sure. My wife keeps telling me Trump will win and the polls and news are all deceptive or stupid or inaccurate for any number of reasons, and she is very smart and sensible, and she called the last one in which Trump won and the polls showed him behind.

    Most normal people don't even answer polls. Marketing surveys these days (sorry Steve) are the domain of the lumpenproletariat, and few others participate in them. We don't answer the phone, and we don't need or care whatever you are offering in exchange for our participation.

    Last week we heard Trump wanted to be on Mount Rushmore. Willie Brown has apparently already beat him to it:

    https://people.com/archive/no-mere-mayor-vol-45-no-25/


    ‘Brown reserves some of the swagger for his social life. Named one of the world’s 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine in 1984, he “has had a succession of girlfriends,” according to James Richardson, a Sacramento Bee reporter whose biography of Brown hits stores next fall. “The measure of his flamboyance is he’ll go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.” As for Brown, he only requests that his date “absolutely be the best-dressed woman in the room.”

    At his 60th-birthday party in 1994, hosted by George Hamilton and attended by such high-profile supporters as Barbra Streisand, Brown got his just desserts. “They gave me a cake about eight feet high,” he recalls, flashing a Golden Gate grin. “It was Mount Rushmore with my head added. When I blew out the candles, I wished those other fellows were removed.”’

    She and her running mate John Hospers lived into their 90s, long outliving Roger MacBride, the much younger Elector who put them in the history books.

    Roger McBride, in memorium

    He doesn’t say how he would know, other than underground gossip. Mrs/Miss Nathan’s bio kind of sheds doubt on this. I’d read that MacBride’s daughter was adopted, so maybe… Abigail MacBride inherited the rights to the Little House franchise from her father, who was bequeathed them by the childless Rose Wilder Lane. Along with her libertarian worldview.

    However Geraldine in 1984 was possibly a Hail Mary by Walter Mondale…

    A lousy choice for that. She added no balance to the ticket; if anything, she lost him her own state, and almost his as well. Reagan did better there than Hillary. (And don’t blame third parties. There were just as many in 1984.)

    My mother grew up just a few blocks from Geraldine. Her reaction to the nomination? “She’s married to a slumlord!”

    Dear Reg Caesar -- I hadn't thought of Geraldine Ferraro in years. I do remember that I was very curious about her birth circumstances. I grew up in the NYC area, too, and had many Italian and Irish schoolmates. Geraldine had a story in New York Magazine by Marie Brenner back then featuring pictures of herself with her dark and hairy brothers and parents. No way was she born to that crew. Her mother gave some sketchy account of Gerrie's birth (in Newburgh NY? my memory). They loved the pretty little girl, but she's Irish as all get-out! I'll bet some convent had an inconvenient birth and gave the child up for adoption to a nice family. Wish we could do a DNA test!

  41. Well Kamala is Willie Brown’s most successful girlfriend. He has had a lot of them though. There was a good kerfuffle a few years ago. At that time, City College wanted to expand to on-line. The president of the board (an ex- girlfriend of Willie) gave a no-bid contract to a head hunter (who was also an ex-girlfriend of Willie) who found a third ex-girlfriend of Willie to head it. My guess is that any Bay Area Democratic women over 45 probably is Willie’s ex-girlfriend.
    On the other hand, Willie was a really good mayor. He managed the homeless better than anyone else, he fixed Muni, he put in a good chancellor for the SF school system (later fired because she had cracked down too much on corruption), got the new Giant’s stadium built and was instrumental in creating the new UCSF/biotech corridor in the previously slummy Dogpatch area. It has been all downhill since then.

If Biden is elected President and doesn't die or suffer an incapacitating break with reality sometime before February of next year, he will effectively be removed from office either quietly in a hidden coup or publicly by being persuaded to resign or being forced out via the 25th Amendment.

    My impression here on this webzine, regarding both Steve and Ron, is that they position themselves (and probably internalize it) as smart guys who know Donald Trump is a big, orange joke of a man.

    They have never given him any explicit support, as far as I can tell, whereas a joker like me has gone as far as to copy and paste Trump’s campaign website with my handle as if it were my own site and I had something to do with it. (I did that for a while here in 2016, while the “smart guys” pooh-pooh-ed Trump. I was willing to look stupid, whereas they were not.

    Look, I know, and any semi-conscious being knows, that The Donald is a joke, but he is OUR JOKE. You know the line: “They’re bastards, but they’re OUR bastards.” What other choice do we have at this point?

    Regarding this being “her election to lose,” as you say, I’m not so sure. My wife keeps telling me Trump will win and the polls and news are all deceptive or stupid or inaccurate for any number of reasons, and she is very smart and sensible, and she called the last one in which Trump won and the polls showed him behind.

    Most normal people don’t even answer polls. Marketing surveys these days (sorry Steve) are the domain of the lumpenproletariat, and few others participate in them. We don’t answer the phone, and we don’t need or care whatever you are offering in exchange for our participation.

    So, “at the end of the day” [yuck] “bottom line” [yuck] we will see what happens…

    When you’re talking about married women and suburban women, you’re basically talking about (relatively) high-IQ women. Living in a suburb as opposed to a ghetto, barrio, or trailer park requires the ability to handle money. While stupid women often marry, their marriages don’t last long, so that in any random year if sampled, their response will typically be “not married.” Even the woman who drinks white wine and watches the view is a cut above the trailer trash. She likes to fantasize about get railed by the alpha male but is smart enough to know it’s a bad idea to actually act out, unlike her stupider trailer-dwelling cousin who got pumped, dumped, and is now raising the kid as a single mom. She’s content merely with closing her eyes and imagining that beta bux is the alpha thugboy of her dreams.

    Among this group, the main issues are, in this order:

    1. Not dying of coronavirus.
    2. Not dying of coronavirus.
    3. Not dying of coronavirus.

    If you’re trailer trash pursuing a “live fast, die young” reproductive strategy, this seems grotesque. Just imagine they are “robots” programmed with a low discount rate and are thoughtlessly pursuing “logical” ideas to what appears to you to be obviously farcical ends. If you do this, you may be able to develop an accurate model for this behavior.

    I’m thinking this was more about her moderate credentials than attracting blacks. White women are more likely spooked but he sudden crime wave and death of cities situation. Harris being a former DA helps there.

    As for being black (and getting out the black vote) I don’t see it. She’s barely black (that old pic with Brown is classic and totally shows her pallor). Plus, I’m thinking her current Jewish white husband will not be a big selling point in the black community. If there were an actual televised convention, with both couples, they might have to CGI a different and darker mate for her. With the COVID restrictions I doubt we get to see his (lack of) diversity. But the Mr. Harris could very well be the first Jew to live in the White House.

    This is rather disingenuous. Anyone – even the most rabidly partisan dimocrat – who has observed the rather obvious and worsening symptoms of Biden’s senile dementia has to be aware that Biden is a stalking horse for the real choice of the Democrat establishment, his VP running mate. If Biden is elected President and doesn’t die or suffer an incapacitating break with reality sometime before February of next year, he will effectively be removed from office either quietly in a hidden coup or publicly by being persuaded to resign or being forced out via the 25th Amendment. As of today, anyone voting for Biden has to know they are actually voting for Kamala Harris.

    You are living in an alt.right bubble.

To be honest, Joe was never the sharpest knife in the drawer so that the gaffes he makes now are not much worse that the gaffes he made 30 years ago - they are not the result of senility, they are the result of stupidity. Joe is literally the poster boy for white privilege. Here is a guy who should have topped out as city councilman and unsuccessful lawyer but who lucked into a job as a Senator from a small state and from there to the VP's office and now maybe even the White House.

    Even if he was senile, his staff and the MSM will be as careful to conceal this as they were to conceal FDR's paralysis and the average American voter will have no inkling that Joe has lost it. Even if Joe becomes a veg he will be kept hidden away like Wilson while Jill runs things. No one gives up power voluntarily while they are still alive.

    Both female VP candidates in history so far lost their elections.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonie_Nathan

    She and her running mate John Hospers lived into their 90s, long outliving Roger MacBride, the much younger Elector who put them in the history books.

    This guy claims all three were queer:

    Roger McBride, in memorium

    He doesn't say how he would know, other than underground gossip. Mrs/Miss Nathan's bio kind of sheds doubt on this. I'd read that MacBride's daughter was adopted, so maybe... Abigail MacBride inherited the rights to the Little House franchise from her father, who was bequeathed them by the childless Rose Wilder Lane. Along with her libertarian worldview.


    However Geraldine in 1984 was possibly a Hail Mary by Walter Mondale...
     
    A lousy choice for that. She added no balance to the ticket; if anything, she lost him her own state, and almost his as well. Reagan did better there than Hillary. (And don't blame third parties. There were just as many in 1984.)

    My mother grew up just a few blocks from Geraldine. Her reaction to the nomination? "She's married to a slumlord!"

    I was comparing 1984 with 2016. There was no major difference in the third-party lineups, only in the willingness of people to vote for them. In other words, Hillary's poor showing in Minnesota was her own fault, not that of the alternatives. She ran marginally better than McGovern, the last Democrat to lose the state. (Though she did top her husband's 1992 percentage.)

    It is important that Trump/Pence and Republicans reference this.

    Obviously it must be done carefully, not meanly. But fair claims that people who do not have children don't have the same insight into "life" and don't have the same "skin in the game" and same visceral concern for the future--their children's future.

    It's not just about Harris, but about pointing out to young people--who skew Democrat--that real life and more sensible voting, starts with children. That's something Republicans should talk about a lot. That they are the party of people who are dealing with the real concerns of life and the nation's future.

    I would say, wrong on pretty much every level. I was surprised by this, as Biden seemingly told Rice she was the pick and she sold all her Netflix stock.

    But no, this is the result of the power struggle within the Democratic Party. The old Rockefeller group of RINOS forced Bush onto Reagan. This is the House of Clinton (Harris) prevailing over the House of Obama (Rice) for the control of the Party and Presidency.

    The Democratic VP pick will be the next President. Biden not might make it past a week of his inauguration. Of course, Trump has ZERO chance of winning. Mail in ballots, and White women voters will see to that.

    This is about what politics is all about: power and money. Who will be looting whom before everything collapses with President AOC. Or Ilhan Omar. [Who cares about a Constitution written by dead White males, many of whom … horrors … owned slaves!]

    Defund the police is a fait accompli. Seattle has done it. Chicago is the midst of doing it. Minneapolis is doing it. Portland has done it. DC is doing it. NYC has done it. Los Angeles has done it. Every city in America will do it, to some degree. And Soros has elected most of the DAs in the country, and they are simply not prosecuting any crime committed by black people.

    Suppose President Harris decides to “get tough” on crime … what cop will do anything but drive and wave? All the local DAs will refuse to press any charges and no federal prosecutor will face the wrath of Soros and the alphabet soup of NGOs on the side of black criminals. President Harris will be gone in a few years but a career as a federal prosecutor leads to book deals and the like. Far better to go after a 15 year old White boy for posting something mean on Twitter. Harris won’t want to get tough on crime. When has being tough on black crime (which is like 80% of all crime) been popular or a winning strategy with those who matter: bureaucrats, NGOs, the Media, Academics, judges, and the permanent managers and administrators of the public-private fusion?

    Every city in America will be a war zone like Detroit or Baltimore. Its open season for black people to commit any and all crimes. BLM and anti-fa ARE the police with police powers to drag drivers out of cars and beat them or worse on their whims. They ARE the LAW. Backed by DAs and the media and Soros money. That was the whole point of Charlottesville. The test run for a commie take over, Reverse Pinochet style.

    Lets not kid ourselves, White suburban moms and professionals love the fantasy of sleeping their way to the top. This pick is a big plus for Biden.

    Being Willie Brown’s former ho has literally no downsides for the campaign. Its basically every Harlequin Romance novel ever written, just more real and Kardashian.

    That Harris is bitchy and obnoxious and hypocritical is a plus too — women and particularly White women love that stuff.

    Harris will likely go all black lives matter and looting are reparations. That’s pretty popular among White women in the suburbs.

  75. God keeps smiling on Donald J. Trump. It’s kinda weird, cause i don’t think Trump is much of a “good guy”. (I’m more of a boring “good guy”–even with my long list of faults. Neighbors, co-workers, associates, would all vouch for my “nice guyness” … at least until i was out of earshot.)

    This is Trump’s deal to lose. Although he’s more than capable of losing it. All he has to do is be willing to clearly outline how utterly ugly the Democrats/minoritarian/globohomo program is for Americans–“rule of law”, social cohesion, immigration (jobs, wages, schools, housing, “family formation)–and try to enact or at least propose alternative programs that actually deliver for middle class people. (Enforce the law, protect their neighborhoods/schools, protect their jobs/wages, cut housing costs, making family formation/child-bearing easier and more affordable.)

    Harris does great service in reminding white women where they stand in the coalition. (If Biden wins, the first female president quite possibly won’t be white or have American parents.) And reminding all men how wonderful it’s going to be to … “Obey Big Sister!”

    Harris is a clear win for nationalists. Either Trump wins–likely. Or we get Biden and the very unpleasant Harris circling. (Like a vulture, if you’re missing my meaning.)

    I think the demographic cake is pretty much baked. America as America is lost. (We let minoritarian anti-nationalists have power and lost our nation.) So i’m a nationalist separatist. I just want *some* piece of America saved for those of us who want to continue to be part of Western Civilization. So “white people waking the f— up” is the critical component. And Harris helps.

    I think Trump campaign should try some subliminal advertising by secretly floating rumors that Harris is not U.S. born and asking people to demand her birth certificate. If she produces one, it can always be argued that it is not long form one and that the fonts don't look authentic etc., The campaign can also float rumors that she is some Rastafarian (or Hindu). Basically,try to portray her as not mainstream but marginal/fringe and hence not Real American. This might not work well, but it may rattle her and make her say some unPC things. Biden may also go ape shit with that.

    Harris as VP pick just goes to hammer home the fact that Western democracies have by and large run out of politicians in the mainstream parties. The younger Boomer/Gen X cohorts making their way in now represent people who got into politics after the systems had been put in place to nurture managers not leaders. This is particularly acute on the left since the 'Washington consensus', 'third way', whatever you want to call the integration of Reganesque Chicago school economics into mainstream centre-left politics. Once you do that, so much has been 'depoliticised', so much policy taken out of the realm of politics, what is the point? And non-psychopaths largely turned their backs on politics or were weeded out.

    The 'must haves' list for Biden seemed broad enough, a black woman. And in the end the best candidate was Kamala Harris. You wanted to pick somebody to energise people to go to the polls but got somebody so deeply disliked and unlikable (Particularly by actual African-American women) that she will likely have the opposite effect. But who else was there?

    Once Trump and Sanders are gone, who will replace them? We've yet to see any third parties start to really build ground, presumably that will begin to happen in 2024 (Whoever wins or in 2022 if Biden wins) as people will generally demand the unexpected outbreak of democracy and democratic choice to continue. (Even for many of those highly passionate about voting against Trump) Surely the time of only hollowmen can't continue after Trump. But coherent movements representing necessary political realignment haven't really been successful in forming so far either within smaller geographic areas within the existing main parties or in new third parties with greater geographic spread.

    I seem to recall that brief period of time when the Republicans held a slim majority in the California Assembly. Brown co-opted Republican Doris Allen to run for Speaker and serve as his sock puppet. The Democrats and Allen voted her in as Speaker. When the outraged voters in her district recalled her, Brown made the same deal with Republican Brian Setencich until Brian was convicted of tax evasion and defeated. Eventually the Democrats regained power and never looked back so now the California Republicans are token minorities sitting in the corners of the California Assembly and Senate, occasionally making ineffectual squeaks of protest at whatever the Democrats feel like doing.

    Brown was the Napoleon of politics. He could have been President if he had been a little younger and had realized that utter, naked corruption is no barrier to the Presidency in our ex-Republic.

    Buzz, then you'd better be prepared to kill them.

    As the "separate nations" guy a couple things:

    1) It's a propaganda line. It makes the point of who needs whom. Who is parasitic on whom. It helps get white people and generally all productive people to think about what's going on.

    2) It's a program. We aren't change the hardcore minoritarians minds. This stuff has been the dominant ideology since the rise of the Jews in the 60s--with a false history, a new constitution, the works. And we are losing the demographic battle. Our likely future looks like "Brazil", with all that entails.

    If you want to live in a nation that is anything like "America", then you must either separate or actually suddenly see white people summon the will to kill hundreds of thousands, chase millions out, put hundreds of thousands in concentration camps. How likely is that? (I'm fine with fighting and dying ... but i'm an evil old guy, not worth much.)

The D party needs to backpedal, as Steve Sailer has been suggesting, from what its side or its allies unleashed: Hurricane Floyd. So, former prosecutor Harris helps in that regard.

    Why any of this shit sways actual voters is another question. We are condemned to share this little, blue planet with a menagerie, and, as I just mentioned elsewhere here, this system is the best we've got.

    Oh, yeah. Harris has real "law and order" appeal. About 3 sentences into its article announcing Harris, the NY Times mentioned that she had been spending her time since the end of her failed Presidential run working on a Federal "anti-lynching" law. We all know that America 2020 is just rife with lynch mobs and that local officials look the other way so that urgent action by the Federal government is needed to prosecute such unpunished crimes. This is surely the most pressing issue facing our nation today and deserves her full attention. When Kamala become the VP (or the POTUS) we can expect more of the same.

    Maybe after the lynch law is passed, Kamala can turn her attention to the right wing mobs who are currently terrorizing our peaceful demonstrators. You have to understand that these folks are living in their own imaginary bubble and have a completely different idea of what "law and order" constitutes.

    Count on Dinesh to trot out some useless DR2 nonsense that is utterly useless and irrelevant.

    Pretty much every black in the United States is the descendant of slave owners. So what. They aren't cancelling themselves. The point is that the slave owners and all their works get cancelled and their white descendants must kneel and do mea culpas.

    And from the right, what's needed isn't this nonsense--that a pathetic tool like Dinesh peddles--that those bad, bad, bad racists were Democrats and everything is sunshine and light now.

    What is needed is realism:
    -- There was a slave society. That was routine in human affairs--ubiquitous in Africa which is why black slaves were available. Nothing to apologize for. Some folks had an economic interest and tried to hold on to it past it's sell-by. (There are always people looking to get over with underpriced labor.)
    -- This is not the cause of our racial conflicts today. That is rooted in black behavior--stupid, uncooperative, unpleasant ... up to flat out criminal violence. Which is rooted both in black American culture, and the "liberal" encouragement/subsidy and in black genetics from long history of adaptation to life in Africa.

    Both female VP candidates in history so far lost their elections.
     
    "Both"? How can you forget Tonie? Theodora Nathalia Nathan Nathan. (Can you beat that for convenience in politics? Her maiden name was also her married name.)


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonie_Nathan

    She and her running mate John Hospers lived into their 90s, long outliving Roger MacBride, the much younger Elector who put them in the history books.

    This guy claims all three were queer:

    Roger McBride, in memorium

    He doesn't say how he would know, other than underground gossip. Mrs/Miss Nathan's bio kind of sheds doubt on this. I'd read that MacBride's daughter was adopted, so maybe... Abigail MacBride inherited the rights to the Little House franchise from her father, who was bequeathed them by the childless Rose Wilder Lane. Along with her libertarian worldview.


    However Geraldine in 1984 was possibly a Hail Mary by Walter Mondale...
     
    A lousy choice for that. She added no balance to the ticket; if anything, she lost him her own state, and almost his as well. Reagan did better there than Hillary. (And don't blame third parties. There were just as many in 1984.)

    My mother grew up just a few blocks from Geraldine. Her reaction to the nomination? "She's married to a slumlord!"

    Dear Reg Caesar — I hadn’t thought of Geraldine Ferraro in years. I do remember that I was very curious about her birth circumstances. I grew up in the NYC area, too, and had many Italian and Irish schoolmates. Geraldine had a story in New York Magazine by Marie Brenner back then featuring pictures of herself with her dark and hairy brothers and parents. No way was she born to that crew. Her mother gave some sketchy account of Gerrie’s birth (in Newburgh NY? my memory). They loved the pretty little girl, but she’s Irish as all get-out! I’ll bet some convent had an inconvenient birth and gave the child up for adoption to a nice family. Wish we could do a DNA test!

    Perhaps the key question might be: can Harris overcome her unfortunate past as a law enforcement official in this, the year of Black Looting Matters?

    It seems that when she was Attorney General of California, she fought to have Swiss Army knives classified as "dirks or daggers," which are illegal to carry "concealed" (i.e. in your pocket).

    https://kniferights.org/legislative-update/california-supreme-court-affirms-swiss-army-knife-not-an-illegal-dagger/

    I do not know what the rest of her record was like as AG, but clearly, anyone working to make something as innocuous* as a Swiss Army Knife illegal can safely be described as "aggressive" when it comes to enforcing the law.

    Surely this is a liability in in the America of 2020?

    I wonder: could this selection be Biden's way of giving a wink and a nod to American law enforcement?


    *Sadly, they are not so innocuous as to be legal in the UK, I regret to say.

    Replies: @Hypnotoad666, @Anonymous, @Jack D

    First of all, although her name was on the briefs as the AG, she didn’t personally “fight” to have Swiss Army knives classified as “daggers”. The AG’s name is on EVERY case during his/her regime. The AG’s office in CA prosecutes thousands of cases. She may not have even known that this case existed. Saying that she “fought” to have Swiss Army knives classified as “dirks or daggers” is the kind of thing that sounds good in an NRA fund raising mailer but it’s a gross exaggeration.

    2nd, this is the kind of things that courts must decide all the time. The statute said something about how a folding knife that can be “locked” is the same as a dagger. When you unfold a pocket knife (and for some strange reason when the perp was arrested he was carrying a pocket knife in an UNfolded position concealed in his jacket – this is not something that boy scouts usually do) it clicks into position. Is this “locked” or not? We have our system of prosecution and defense to hash such things out . The prosecution says that it IS “locked” and the defense says that it isn’t and the court decides what the word “locked” means. If Kamala had been the Chief Public Defender instead of the AG, her office would have argued the opposite. She was just doing her job – it was not some kind of personal crusade to take away your Swiss Army Knife.

    BTW, this ruling meant that the perp, who did not sound like a very nice person, got off, so I hope you are happy. Very often the cops will catch some bad guy and for some reason they cannot make a case for the real crime that he has committed so they will go for “possession of an illegal weapon” or something as the next best thing (and in this case they had gotten a conviction) but now he gets to go free on appeal because instead of the shitty public defender he now had the Knife Foundation or something like that writing high $ briefs on his behalf. They were never going to prosecute boy scouts carrying pocket knives to begin with.

    Last week we heard Trump wanted to be on Mount Rushmore. Willie Brown has apparently already beat him to it:

    https://people.com/archive/no-mere-mayor-vol-45-no-25/


    ‘Brown reserves some of the swagger for his social life. Named one of the world’s 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine in 1984, he “has had a succession of girlfriends,” according to James Richardson, a Sacramento Bee reporter whose biography of Brown hits stores next fall. “The measure of his flamboyance is he’ll go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.” As for Brown, he only requests that his date “absolutely be the best-dressed woman in the room.”

    At his 60th-birthday party in 1994, hosted by George Hamilton and attended by such high-profile supporters as Barbra Streisand, Brown got his just desserts. “They gave me a cake about eight feet high,” he recalls, flashing a Golden Gate grin. “It was Mount Rushmore with my head added. When I blew out the candles, I wished those other fellows were removed.”’

    I think he was holding the phone upside down in order to point the mic at his laptop speaker so that some third party (don't know who) could listen in on the call. Also he is holding the phone in such a way as to block his view of the "script".

    I assume that the talking points were there as a backup written by his staff in case he lost the thread (as Joe is wont to do) but was not needed.

    All is fair in love and war but honestly the jokes about Biden being senile are just jokes. I have the feeling that people here have taken them to heart a little bit too much. The man is maybe a few points off his game (which was never that strong to begin with) but he is not genuinely senile. I don't want him to be President but not because he is senile. If Trump can milk the senile angle for votes then good luck to him but between me and you Biden is not senile.

    This is rather disingenuous. Anyone - even the most rabidly partisan dimocrat - who has observed the rather obvious and worsening symptoms of Biden's senile dementia has to be aware that Biden is a stalking horse for the real choice of the Democrat establishment, his VP running mate. If Biden is elected President and doesn't die or suffer an incapacitating break with reality sometime before February of next year, he will effectively be removed from office either quietly in a hidden coup or publicly by being persuaded to resign or being forced out via the 25th Amendment. As of today, anyone voting for Biden has to know they are actually voting for Kamala Harris.

    C'mon Jack. My dad--a generation older--isn't "senile" either. But he's certainly degraded from where he was even a few years ago and he has no business being President. Even when he was Biden's age he'd have had no business being President and he's a hell of a lot smarter than Joe and was less degraded back then.

    You're making this too binary. I'm a definitely a step or two slower than i was when i was 50. But I can still think, discuss, make my points--even if i stumble around more--and make decisions. That's nothing like the cliff Joe's gone over. As Obama's running mate, Biden at 65 could yap out the Democrats' talking points, with his usual low-IQ, high-confidence. Now he stumbles and fumbles and is utterly incoherent in pretty setup and scripted bits his team allows with the media.

    Ok, maybe not clinically "senile", but all Biden can do at best is shout out well-worn political themes he's got stored in long term memory. (It's like my dad talking about his days in the Navy or courting my mom.) No way Biden is fit to listen to a few advisors argue about policy, take it in and make an actual "decision" that is at all "reasoned"--even by Biden's earlier low-wattage bar.

    I think you're right, if Biden is elected he'll serve his four years, with Jill and advisors calling the shots.

    But Biden's fitness and this simple question of who'll be running the show is a *great* one for Trump to raise. It's a question that normie swing voters can relate to:

    "Who has the drive and energy to lead us out of this Xi virus disaster and get America back up and running again. Who do you want as a leader? Who can Make America Great Again"?

Anyway, whatever you call it the abortive run was a disaster of comical proportions, despite her being the star candidate of loathsome media scum. Couldn’t get any traction with blacks, lost out to Warren and Bootedgeedge for the white lame-o vote. Truly there is no reason to have her as the VP. Except that the media and their Democratic party puppets demanded it. And so Biden acquiesced. Probably the best result for the media actually, since she was unlikely to win on her own merits.

    First of all, although her name was on the briefs as the AG, she didn't personally "fight" to have Swiss Army knives classified as "daggers". The AG's name is on EVERY case during his/her regime. The AG's office in CA prosecutes thousands of cases. She may not have even known that this case existed. Saying that she "fought" to have Swiss Army knives classified as “dirks or daggers” is the kind of thing that sounds good in an NRA fund raising mailer but it's a gross exaggeration.

    2nd, this is the kind of things that courts must decide all the time. The statute said something about how a folding knife that can be "locked" is the same as a dagger. When you unfold a pocket knife (and for some strange reason when the perp was arrested he was carrying a pocket knife in an UNfolded position concealed in his jacket - this is not something that boy scouts usually do) it clicks into position. Is this "locked" or not? We have our system of prosecution and defense to hash such things out . The prosecution says that it IS "locked" and the defense says that it isn't and the court decides what the word "locked" means. If Kamala had been the Chief Public Defender instead of the AG, her office would have argued the opposite. She was just doing her job - it was not some kind of personal crusade to take away your Swiss Army Knife.

    BTW, this ruling meant that the perp, who did not sound like a very nice person, got off, so I hope you are happy. Very often the cops will catch some bad guy and for some reason they cannot make a case for the real crime that he has committed so they will go for "possession of an illegal weapon" or something as the next best thing (and in this case they had gotten a conviction) but now he gets to go free on appeal because instead of the shitty public defender he now had the Knife Foundation or something like that writing high $ briefs on his behalf. They were never going to prosecute boy scouts carrying pocket knives to begin with.

    The fact that Kamala screwed her way to success (despite feminist doctrine, still the best way for a woman to succeed - ask Hillary Clinton) does not seem to have hurt her with the California electorate. Although California is now a one party state ( Harris's opponent in the November 2016 election was the 2nd place Democrat finisher Hispanic lady) there are still elections and Kamala won handily. I suspect the same will be true this November (and it is an axiom of Presidential politics that nobody votes for the VP).

To be honest, Joe was never the sharpest knife in the drawer so that the gaffes he makes now are not much worse that the gaffes he made 30 years ago - they are not the result of senility, they are the result of stupidity. Joe is literally the poster boy for white privilege. Here is a guy who should have topped out as city councilman and unsuccessful lawyer but who lucked into a job as a Senator from a small state and from there to the VP's office and now maybe even the White House.

    Even if he was senile, his staff and the MSM will be as careful to conceal this as they were to conceal FDR's paralysis and the average American voter will have no inkling that Joe has lost it.

    God keeps smiling on Donald J. Trump. It's kinda weird, cause i don't think Trump is much of a "good guy". (I'm more of a boring "good guy"--even with my long list of faults. Neighbors, co-workers, associates, would all vouch for my "nice guyness" ... at least until i was out of earshot.)

    This is Trump's deal to lose. Although he's more than capable of losing it. All he has to do is be willing to clearly outline how utterly ugly the Democrats/minoritarian/globohomo program is for Americans--"rule of law", social cohesion, immigration (jobs, wages, schools, housing, "family formation)--and try to enact or at least propose alternative programs that actually deliver for middle class people. (Enforce the law, protect their neighborhoods/schools, protect their jobs/wages, cut housing costs, making family formation/child-bearing easier and more affordable.)

    Harris does great service in reminding white women where they stand in the coalition. (If Biden wins, the first female president quite possibly won't be white or have American parents.) And reminding all men how wonderful it's going to be to ... "Obey Big Sister!"

    Harris is a clear win for nationalists. Either Trump wins--likely. Or we get Biden and the very unpleasant Harris circling. (Like a vulture, if you're missing my meaning.)

    I think the demographic cake is pretty much baked. America as America is lost. (We let minoritarian anti-nationalists have power and lost our nation.) So i'm a nationalist separatist. I just want *some* piece of America saved for those of us who want to continue to be part of Western Civilization. So "white people waking the f--- up" is the critical component. And Harris helps.

    Replies: @Hypnotoad666, @anon

    I think Trump campaign should try some subliminal advertising by secretly floating rumors that Harris is not U.S. born and asking people to demand her birth certificate. If she produces one, it can always be argued that it is not long form one and that the fonts don’t look authentic etc., The campaign can also float rumors that she is some Rastafarian (or Hindu). Basically,try to portray her as not mainstream but marginal/fringe and hence not Real American. This might not work well, but it may rattle her and make her say some unPC things. Biden may also go ape shit with that.

    I seem to recall that brief period of time when the Republicans held a slim majority in the California Assembly. Brown co-opted Republican Doris Allen to run for Speaker and serve as his sock puppet. The Democrats and Allen voted her in as Speaker. When the outraged voters in her district recalled her, Brown made the same deal with Republican Brian Setencich until Brian was convicted of tax evasion and defeated. Eventually the Democrats regained power and never looked back so now the California Republicans are token minorities sitting in the corners of the California Assembly and Senate, occasionally making ineffectual squeaks of protest at whatever the Democrats feel like doing.

    Brown was the Napoleon of politics. He could have been President if he had been a little younger and had realized that utter, naked corruption is no barrier to the Presidency in our ex-Republic.

    Oh, yeah. Harris has real "law and order" appeal. About 3 sentences into its article announcing Harris, the NY Times mentioned that she had been spending her time since the end of her failed Presidential run working on a Federal "anti-lynching" law. We all know that America 2020 is just rife with lynch mobs and that local officials look the other way so that urgent action by the Federal government is needed to prosecute such unpunished crimes. This is surely the most pressing issue facing our nation today and deserves her full attention. When Kamala become the VP (or the POTUS) we can expect more of the same.

    Maybe after the lynch law is passed, Kamala can turn her attention to the right wing mobs who are currently terrorizing our peaceful demonstrators. You have to understand that these folks are living in their own imaginary bubble and have a completely different idea of what "law and order" constitutes.

    I assume that the talking points were there as a backup written by his staff in case he lost the thread (as Joe is wont to do) but was not needed.

    All is fair in love and war but honestly the jokes about Biden being senile are just jokes. I have the feeling that people here have taken them to heart a little bit too much. The man is maybe a few points off his game (which was never that strong to begin with) but he is not genuinely senile. I don’t want him to be President but not because he is senile.

    senile

    adjective

    se·​nile | \ ˈsē-ˌnī(-ə)l also ˈse- \

    Definition of senile

    1 : of, relating to, exhibiting, or characteristic of old age
    senile weakness
    especially : exhibiting a loss of cognitive abilities (such as memory) associated with old age

    2 : approaching the end of a geological cycle of erosion

     

    Since Joe Biden is not a geological formation, one must conclude that he satisfies definition number 1.

    As the “separate nations” guy a couple things:

    1) It’s a propaganda line. It makes the point of who needs whom. Who is parasitic on whom. It helps get white people and generally all productive people to think about what’s going on.

    2) It’s a program. We aren’t change the hardcore minoritarians minds. This stuff has been the dominant ideology since the rise of the Jews in the 60s–with a false history, a new constitution, the works. And we are losing the demographic battle. Our likely future looks like “Brazil”, with all that entails.

    If you want to live in a nation that is anything like “America”, then you must either separate or actually suddenly see white people summon the will to kill hundreds of thousands, chase millions out, put hundreds of thousands in concentration camps. How likely is that? (I’m fine with fighting and dying … but i’m an evil old guy, not worth much.)

    Today Dolly Parton gave an interview w/Rolling Stone in which she came out and supported BLM.

    Thoughts? You're the resident show biz expert.

    IMO, this is a short term win and a long term loss, because she's lost her country (literally) and BLM will lose. Not in the next few years, but in the next generation.

    There will be consequences.

    BTW: same goes for those around here who fantasize about, and advocate, dividing up the United States of America. No you won’t. All of this is ours.
     
    Buzz, then you'd better be prepared to kill them.

    As the "separate nations" guy a couple things:

    1) It's a propaganda line. It makes the point of who needs whom. Who is parasitic on whom. It helps get white people and generally all productive people to think about what's going on.

    2) It's a program. We aren't change the hardcore minoritarians minds. This stuff has been the dominant ideology since the rise of the Jews in the 60s--with a false history, a new constitution, the works. And we are losing the demographic battle. Our likely future looks like "Brazil", with all that entails.

    If you want to live in a nation that is anything like "America", then you must either separate or actually suddenly see white people summon the will to kill hundreds of thousands, chase millions out, put hundreds of thousands in concentration camps. How likely is that? (I'm fine with fighting and dying ... but i'm an evil old guy, not worth much.)

    Convincing people on both sides that we hate each other and should just live apart seems like a much more achievable objective. I like my fantasies to be more realistic.

    And so on.

    This is global. Our “race,” or “sub-species,” our unique breed (which is actually more internally “diverse” than any of the others!) is under attack and retreating.

    There is only one response. This is nature, not an abstraction. This is environmental biology, in which breeds compete. Most of us are too removed from this reality of life, just as most don’t even know where their food comes from.

    Count on Dinesh to trot out some useless DR2 nonsense that is utterly useless and irrelevant.

    Pretty much every black in the United States is the descendant of slave owners. So what. They aren’t cancelling themselves. The point is that the slave owners and all their works get cancelled and their white descendants must kneel and do mea culpas.

    And from the right, what’s needed isn’t this nonsense–that a pathetic tool like Dinesh peddles–that those bad, bad, bad racists were Democrats and everything is sunshine and light now.

    What is needed is realism:
    — There was a slave society. That was routine in human affairs–ubiquitous in Africa which is why black slaves were available. Nothing to apologize for. Some folks had an economic interest and tried to hold on to it past it’s sell-by. (There are always people looking to get over with underpriced labor.)
    — This is not the cause of our racial conflicts today. That is rooted in black behavior–stupid, uncooperative, unpleasant … up to flat out criminal violence. Which is rooted both in black American culture, and the “liberal” encouragement/subsidy and in black genetics from long history of adaptation to life in Africa.

    I think he was holding the phone upside down in order to point the mic at his laptop speaker so that some third party (don't know who) could listen in on the call. Also he is holding the phone in such a way as to block his view of the "script".

    I assume that the talking points were there as a backup written by his staff in case he lost the thread (as Joe is wont to do) but was not needed.

    All is fair in love and war but honestly the jokes about Biden being senile are just jokes. I have the feeling that people here have taken them to heart a little bit too much. The man is maybe a few points off his game (which was never that strong to begin with) but he is not genuinely senile. I don't want him to be President but not because he is senile. If Trump can milk the senile angle for votes then good luck to him but between me and you Biden is not senile.

    Now Jack, by definition Joe Biden is senile. This is from Merriam-Webster online:

    senile

    adjective

    se·​nile | \ ˈsē-ˌnī(-ə)l also ˈse- \

    Definition of senile

    1 : of, relating to, exhibiting, or characteristic of old age
    senile weakness
    especially : exhibiting a loss of cognitive abilities (such as memory) associated with old age

    2 : approaching the end of a geological cycle of erosion

    Since Joe Biden is not a geological formation, one must conclude that he satisfies definition number 1.

    You are living in an alt.right bubble. We can joke about it, but it seems far from certain to me that Joe is actually suffering from senile dementia (any more than Trump - everyone slows down a bit as they age). To be honest, Joe was never the sharpest knife in the drawer so that the gaffes he makes now are not much worse that the gaffes he made 30 years ago - they are not the result of senility, they are the result of stupidity. Joe is literally the poster boy for white privilege. Here is a guy who should have topped out as city councilman and unsuccessful lawyer but who lucked into a job as a Senator from a small state and from there to the VP's office and now maybe even the White House.

    Even if he was senile, his staff and the MSM will be as careful to conceal this as they were to conceal FDR's paralysis and the average American voter will have no inkling that Joe has lost it. Even if Joe becomes a veg he will be kept hidden away like Wilson while Jill runs things. No one gives up power voluntarily while they are still alive.

    C’mon Jack. My dad–a generation older–isn’t “senile” either. But he’s certainly degraded from where he was even a few years ago and he has no business being President. Even when he was Biden’s age he’d have had no business being President and he’s a hell of a lot smarter than Joe and was less degraded back then.

    You’re making this too binary. I’m a definitely a step or two slower than i was when i was 50. But I can still think, discuss, make my points–even if i stumble around more–and make decisions. That’s nothing like the cliff Joe’s gone over. As Obama’s running mate, Biden at 65 could yap out the Democrats’ talking points, with his usual low-IQ, high-confidence. Now he stumbles and fumbles and is utterly incoherent in pretty setup and scripted bits his team allows with the media.

    Ok, maybe not clinically “senile”, but all Biden can do at best is shout out well-worn political themes he’s got stored in long term memory. (It’s like my dad talking about his days in the Navy or courting my mom.) No way Biden is fit to listen to a few advisors argue about policy, take it in and make an actual “decision” that is at all “reasoned”–even by Biden’s earlier low-wattage bar.

    I think you’re right, if Biden is elected he’ll serve his four years, with Jill and advisors calling the shots.

    But Biden’s fitness and this simple question of who’ll be running the show is a *great* one for Trump to raise. It’s a question that normie swing voters can relate to:

    “Who has the drive and energy to lead us out of this Xi virus disaster and get America back up and running again. Who do you want as a leader? Who can Make America Great Again”?

    Everyone’s schoolmarm told them that if they don’t have anything nice to say, they shouldn’t say anything at all, and Steve’s really taken that to heart with regards to POTUS.
     
    My impression here on this webzine, regarding both Steve and Ron, is that they position themselves (and probably internalize it) as smart guys who know Donald Trump is a big, orange joke of a man.

    They have never given him any explicit support, as far as I can tell, whereas a joker like me has gone as far as to copy and paste Trump's campaign website with my handle as if it were my own site and I had something to do with it. (I did that for a while here in 2016, while the "smart guys" pooh-pooh-ed Trump. I was willing to look stupid, whereas they were not.

    Look, I know, and any semi-conscious being knows, that The Donald is a joke, but he is OUR JOKE. You know the line: "They're bastards, but they're OUR bastards." What other choice do we have at this point?

    Regarding this being "her election to lose," as you say, I'm not so sure. My wife keeps telling me Trump will win and the polls and news are all deceptive or stupid or inaccurate for any number of reasons, and she is very smart and sensible, and she called the last one in which Trump won and the polls showed him behind.

    Most normal people don't even answer polls. Marketing surveys these days (sorry Steve) are the domain of the lumpenproletariat, and few others participate in them. We don't answer the phone, and we don't need or care whatever you are offering in exchange for our participation.

    So, "at the end of the day" [yuck] "bottom line" [yuck] we will see what happens...

    Both Biden and Trump have always seemed rather stupid compared to the average members of the ruling class who've risen to their level of prominence. The particular issue with Biden is that he is obviously much less mentally acute than he was even four years ago. Furthermore, his public appearances suggest that the overall downward trend in his mental competence has been accelerating. I won't attempt to diagnose the reasons for this but I have personal experience with some who suffered from senile dementia. During their decline they had good days and bad days. I suspect that Biden was having one of his better days during the presentation you saw.

    Let's wait until the debates between Trump and Biden. If Biden bows out or his handlers cancel the debates then that would be a definite signal that Biden has serious mental issues. If Biden and Trump do debate then we will all get a real opportunity to judge who is more mentally competent.

    I think he was holding the phone upside down in order to point the mic at his laptop speaker so that some third party (don't know who) could listen in on the call. Also he is holding the phone in such a way as to block his view of the "script".

    I assume that the talking points were there as a backup written by his staff in case he lost the thread (as Joe is wont to do) but was not needed.

    All is fair in love and war but honestly the jokes about Biden being senile are just jokes. I have the feeling that people here have taken them to heart a little bit too much. The man is maybe a few points off his game (which was never that strong to begin with) but he is not genuinely senile. I don't want him to be President but not because he is senile. If Trump can milk the senile angle for votes then good luck to him but between me and you Biden is not senile.

    Speaking of a "cake about eight feet high," I just read where Willie Brown is just 5'2" tall. Is Kamala Harris as short as she appears in that photo--shorter than Willie??

    Rumor has it that the 5’2” refers to one of Willie’s appendages.
