From CBS News in Los Angeles:

Train Derailment Causes Road Closures In Lincoln Heights

By CBSLA Staff January 15, 2022 at 5:24 pm

LINCOLN HEIGHTS — According to officials from the University of Southern California, a train has become derailed from its tracks in the Lincoln Heights area, causing several road closures in the vicinity.

Lincoln Heights is just north of downtown Los Angeles, east of Dodger Stadium, where the railroad tracks follow the L.A. River.

A Union Pacific official told CBS that 17 containers were impacted in the incident, which is located at LATC rail yard, the same spot where reports of vandalism and theft have made headlines over recent days.

As I posted on Thursday.

Back in 2018, I wrote about how often freight trains are derailed in Mexico by robbers. Not everything in Mexico spreads across the border, but sometimes what happens in Mexico doesn’t stay in Mexico.

    Brazil the Model.
     
    Brazil is like the US South, with tremendous demographic sandbag, but a coherent culture due to limited and selective immigration. ("Great Wave" immigration to the US generally spurned Dixie, as did postwar and, until the last few decades, post-1965.)

    However, several countries are, or are considering, imitating Brazil in moving their capitals inland. Indonesia is about to, and it's been suggested for Russia. This is criticized as potentially harmful to Moscow, but that's ridiculous. The experience of Brazil-- as well as that of Nigeria, Ivory Coast, West Germany, Pakistan, India, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the US-- shows that national-capital status is a trivial asset for a major city. This goes for states and provinces as well. Albany, Tallahassee, Austin, Sacramento, Juneau all made sense once.

    The literature on criminal deterrence is pretty interesting. Basically every serious criminologist (i.e. not the critical race theorists who disagree with incarcerating any black man for any reason) agrees that if you want to deter crime, you set punishments just high enough to matter and then drive up the apprehension rate as high as you can. A 0.01% risk of being executed for this crime doesn't deter at all, and a 70% risk of doing a decade in prison deters almost absolutely.

    The sky high murder rate across the border reflects the fact that their murder clearance rate is too low to deter, and our clearance rate is still high enough to deter.

    "I got to my feet and made a run at this coyote and just as I reached him, I tripped and fell down. This bastardo, as quick as a cat , grabbed my gun, which I had drawn, and standing over me commenced to tussle enthusiastically to get it away.

    "I had no illusions as to what he'd do if he succeeded. He had thoughtfully wrapped his hands around the cylinder and while I had my finger on the trigger I could not fire the weapon because he would not permit the cylinder to turn.

    "Very energetically I rolled up on my shoulders and kicked this sonofabitch in the belly. It broke him loose from my pistol. He wasted no time. He ran for the river which was only 30 steps away. I saw him very clearly against all the lights of Juarez and I let him run until he was in the Old Rio Grande up to his knees.

    "I held the gold bead front sight in the white-outlined rear notch and put the gold right in his back just at the belt line. On the shot he pitched forward as though spanked with a baseball bat.

    "Three days later the BP Chief told me, 'They dragged a dead Mex out of the river of the Socorro Headgates yesterday. The U.S. Consul in Juarez told me.' I didn't say anything.

    Borders don't really matter. The obsession some of you have with borders is hilariously absurd. If you have a tightknit community that doesn't allow people, let alone outsiders, to do anything they want, then some line in the sand a thousand miles away is completely irrelevant.

    If anything our borders are guarded too tightly. Like some other people, I have driven a lot between the upper midwest and northern New England. It obviously is much quicker to go through Canada. But even as a law-abiding, cleancut hhhhwhite US citizen, on more than one occasion I have gone hundreds of miles out of my way in order to avoid having to leave the country because the US border guards are such utter pieces of shit. The ones at airports are equally demonic. And obviously they don't treat foreigners any better. Everyone is treated like garbage at our borders, and DHS is among the most opaque and unaccountable departments in the US government, which is saying a lot.

    And to echo Ron Unz, the biggest problems in our country have little to nothing to do with immigration. The elites use hatred of immigrants in order to distract stupid people from much bigger problems. The joggers who rob these trains are not of an immigrant background. The people who burned the country down in 2020 were not immigrants. The people in the media and government who force toxic injections on us, enslave us through debt, cover for joggers, and promote hatred of whites have been here for many generations now.

    Conversely, if you knew you might get murdered by a fellow Mexican, wouldn't you stay 0n the U.S. side of the border and not go back to Mexico if you could avoid it?

    This leads me to believe that both the murdered and the murderers are probably all mixed up in cartel business.

    There have been plenty of times when whoever is in charge of cities let crime get out of control.

    London when the Lord Henry who became Henry 4 of England by getting rid of King Richard 2. The future Henry 4 controlled the city through rent a mobs. Numerous other examples in Europe for centuries. .

    Boston 1760s early 70s when revolutionary masons used rent a mobs and rampaging criminals.

    Paris Marseille Lyon Nantes and other cities 1788-1798 revolutionary masons used rampaging criminals and rent a mobs. The French national anthem commemorates criminals in the city of Marseille massacring prisoners accused of anti revolutionary thought.

    1848 revolutions all over Europe. Suppressed by the governments.

    1918 - 1925 Moscow Leningrad many Russian cities Berlin Munich other German cities Vienna Capitol of Hungary Budapest? Rome and many other cities communists Jews and other satanic liberals opened the jails and prisons and used the criminals to overwhelm Capitol and important cities . Once the communists and satanic liberals had the cities they controlled the countries.

    Mussolini quickly ended the communist liberal and criminal occupation from Rome. Took longer and a lot of fighting in Hungary Germany and Austria. Communists stayed in power in Russia.

    What the democrats not just Soros democrat district attorneys are doing by opening the prisons and ordering the police to stand down is exactly what revolutionaries have done since cities existed .

    Whether it was overthrowing an Emperor or King by a usurper, or Masons in late 1700s America and France, communists in 1918-1925 European Capitol and major cities, or what’s going on now in America’s cities it’s revolutionary strategy and tactics. They are already in control.

    It’s nothing new. Usually it succeeds. Sometimes it fails as when Italy Hungary Austria Germany smashed the communist take overs after WW1.

    It’s taken about 62 years for it to happen in America. Standard revolutionary tactics and strategy. Use low life criminals and riots combined with usurpers at the highest levels of society.

They were always ready to shoot you in the ass with pepper (?) guns as I was told. But today they probably operate under the same constraints as all the other police agencies except for the Capitol Police and other federal agencies.

    The first (Mike Ade) video shows and has the narrator commenting that the train is on "two separate tracks." In this section of track, just east of the actual inter-modal terminal, there are numerous switches to allow trains to switch from one track to another. A damaged switch (or one malfunctioning because of debris) could be responsible for part of a train crossing to a second track and another part of the train continuing on the first track.

    From: Interface, the Journal of Wheel/Rail Interaction:

    "Switch Point Derailments: Is it the point or the wheel?"

    "No other type of derailment causes as much angst among railroaders as the switch point derailment."

    Solve the shipping backup and rail theft problems by sending ships through the Panama Canal to Norfolk. It's happening, to a certain extent, already.

    P.S.: One of the dumbest things ever was the raising of the Bayonne Bridge at extreme expense, and, in all likelihood, inconvenience, in recent years. This was to allow Panamax ships to load and unload in Newark and Elizabeth. This Civil Engineering marvel, which I read about in the American Society of Civil Engineers journal, is totally unnecessary. They could have just improved facilities in Brooklyn and Bayonne, since I'm sure the facilities on Newark Bay also need to be improved, to handle these ships, in addition to the bridge raising. That may have been covered in the article. If so, I forgot that part.

    All of the above is aside from the issue of whether New York Bay and associated waterways are good places to send, or originate, shipments, and especially whether they will be in the future. At the very least, the massive capital investment for the greater glory of the Port of Newark was extreme madness, and shame on ASCE for celebrating it.

  31. Crime is a good thing for the people who run: LA, SF, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Dallas, St. Louis, Philly, etc.

    They all happen to be black. Crime is like black is beautiful. It drives away gentrification (dead now for thirty years), drives away all investment, business, White people, Asians, Hispanics. It leaves blacks with complete and total control of these areas, which now and forever will belong to black people. Its what they wanted. Its why Soros funded all those DAs and Mayors. Being a Sabbatean Frankist he wants every city in the West to resemble Detroit.

    And yes it was crime not the declining US Auto industry that killed Detroit. More specifically, black people.

    And for Democrats, particularly the more forward thinking ones, turning every major city into a ruined Detroit is genius. It allows for unlimited dumped ballots, zero oversight, and a permanent majority. Even better, Whites and Hispanics can be taxed into poverty yearly and worked as serfs to make sure the new overlords, black people, live the high life like Snoop. Look at how beautiful Oakland and Detroit are for Dems, the uber rich, etc. They give them the moral legitimacy to enserf dirt people, manufacture votes as needed, and provide a base for what amounts to reverse Cossacks to put down White and now Latino aspirations not to eat bugs and watch 100% black black blackety black stuff on streaming in their shipping container “housing unit allotment”

    The Great Reset is not going to start itself with Richard Florida’s cool cities. With every urban area looking like Detroit, its a dead cinch.

    As for UP, in the letter FedEx and UPS are dumping them. They will just avoid, they’d lose their entire company if the shot off Tookie’s toe or something. Lets get real — the lowest hood rat outranks and is more important than the biggest corporate big shot. In the way the most impoverished Knight was more important than the richest Jewish banker in the Middle Ages. UP itself looks to move operations out of LA county and use trucks to send cargo to their yard in San Bernadino. Or perhaps they will build a new one in the High Desert near Barstow.

    There is really no link between abortion and breast cancer.

    The link is between (1 )never having been pregnant and (2 ) never undergoing a completed pregnancy known as child birth. Late miscarriages count as a completed childbirth. Very early ones don’t for some reason.

    This was noted in early medieval times. Celibate nuns had a high rate of breast cancer. Prostitutes had a high rate of uterine and vaginal cancer. But not because they did or did not have children. Because they inherited the cancer genes.

    Cancer is mostly genetic. Women who don’t inherit cancer genes and never get pregnant or have several abortions don’t get cancer.

    Women who inherit the cancer gene and have several children do get cancer. I’ve known several families grandmother mother and now as the daughters are reaching 50 the grand daughters. And I know plenty of women in 60s and 70s who never had children never got pregnant and will never get cancer.

    Tobacco and lung , throat, larynx etc cancer. It isn’t tobacco smoke that caused all those cancers. It was the tobacco smoke affecting people who inherited the cancer gene. Back when all those anti tobacco lawsuits were going on the tobacco companies successfully proved only about 10 percent of smokers got cancer.

    I’ve known men like my dad and a brother who smoked since their teens . Never got cancer.

    Retail restaurant factory construction hospital workers couldn’t smoke while working. But office workers could. By early afternoon the smoke was visible. Office workers smoked 2 packs a day 8:30.to 5. And another pack after work. But only about 10 percent got cancer.

    Smoking was never allowed inside courtrooms. But the hallways outside the courtrooms are lined with benches and crowded with numerous people standing. You could barely breathe in courthouse halls by 10 am.

    Asbestos and other environmental workplace contaminates do seem to cause cancer by themselves in some but not other workers.

    Genetics rule.

    The anti abortion people are very sincere. And base their position on Do Not Kill. But the abortion causes cancer argument is bogus. Its the correlation of never undergoing a completed pregnancy combined with inherited genes.

    It’s mostly genetics the never having undergone a completed pregnancy and not smoking tobacco doesn’t cause cancer. They correlate with the genetics.

    Ask anyone who has cancer. There’s always a history of it in the family. That’s why there’s a long list of hereditary diseases on every medical form we fill out.

    Sure, people have self agency, and are primarily responsible for their own actions. But, couldn't the fact that young people had been being told for years by the corporate mass media 'Don't be square!' help, in part, to explain the great increase in drug use and addiction at that time, and a murderous group like the Manson Family arising, whom, after all, had innocently simply decided to 'stop being square', just as they'd been being told to?

    Solve the shipping backup and rail theft problems by sending ships through the Panama Canal to Norfolk. It’s happening, to a certain extent, already.

    P.S.: One of the dumbest things ever was the raising of the Bayonne Bridge at extreme expense, and, in all likelihood, inconvenience, in recent years. This was to allow Panamax ships to load and unload in Newark and Elizabeth. This Civil Engineering marvel, which I read about in the American Society of Civil Engineers journal, is totally unnecessary. They could have just improved facilities in Brooklyn and Bayonne, since I’m sure the facilities on Newark Bay also need to be improved, to handle these ships, in addition to the bridge raising. That may have been covered in the article. If so, I forgot that part.

    All of the above is aside from the issue of whether New York Bay and associated waterways are good places to send, or originate, shipments, and especially whether they will be in the future. At the very least, the massive capital investment for the greater glory of the Port of Newark was extreme madness, and shame on ASCE for celebrating it.

    Was the cost of raising the bridge more than the cost of building a new container port and related infrastructure in Bayonne? (I think Brooklyn was out of the question - it doesn't have the highway capacity to get the cargo off of Long Island).

    Self employed truck drivers avoid LA because of the environmental restrictions and costs of California, they have plenty of work elsewhere. It also takes too long to be given a load at the LA port, it can take as much as two to three days from arrival to departure. Another issue is cargo ships are all large these days, so they can't use the smaller ports, too much has to go through LA. This isn't an issue that will go away for the US, we have no supply issues in Europe.

    "Solve the shipping backup and rail theft problems by sending ships through the Panama Canal to Norfolk. It’s happening, to a certain extent, already."

    The problem is this: The Panama Canal from what I understand, can only accommodate container ships to the capacity of 5,000 TEU's (20' equivalent sized units), I'm assuming because of the depth of the canal. The biggest container ships carry over 15,000 TEU's, so the PC is not an option.

    Also, the train that derailed and the train being robbed in that other video are hauling domestic containers, not ocean containers. (I can explain the difference and why there's a difference but the info is out there.)

    About 50% of the freight carried in domestic containers has been transloaded from ocean containers on or near the ports it came into. (the freight from 3 40' ocean containers can be fit into the space of 2 53' domestic containers, or so they say) This means there is a domestic bill of lading generated at the ground level by the transload facility with information that gets uploaded into a customer portal provided by the railroad. The portal will have all of the transit info so the customer can track their shipment. So here is a theory I have: Dock supervisor Jerome (or Juan) at the transload facility has access to the takes a quick pic of the screen with the cell phone he's not supposed to have while on the clock and sends it to his homie Craig (Jose) who stay on da souf side of Chicago, so now Craig/Jose knows which container all the flat screens are going to be sitting in, on which track, at which rail terminal, on what day.

    In 1619 the betrayal started in a big way at Jamestown with the importation by diktat by some of the Anglo-Saxon planters of 'Angolans' as indentured servants, whom within a few decades would be being imported in as chattel slaves.

    This horrible template then established of importing alien labor so as to not pay the prevailing real time local labor rates to their own Anglo-Saxon people remains in place to this very day with wage slavery, ie the so called cheap labor/mass immigration system.

    With chattel slavery and its trade in the early 19th century having in reality been monetized, ie distilled down to it's financial essence whilst profits were maximized (rather than the misnomer of it being 'abolished' as we are told) with the introduction of the wage slave 'immigrant' via the cheap labor/mass immigration system, like a cancer slavery had metastasized to the internal organs of the body politic, and now, unless halted, threatens the very life of the patient himself.

    Of course, minority alien elites and hangers on that might be involved in this would tend to have even less qualms about this sort of thing, as it's not their people primarily being affected.

    Should any of the non-exploiting vast majority being negatively affected by the resulting depressed wages, cultural destruction and social chaos, and their ultimate genocide, start to get 'uppity' about this, utterly corrupt elites and their hangers on will have no problem siccing the imported alien population upon them in a divide and conquer, divide and rule manner.

    How this historically has worked is succinctly described below:

    '..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups; settlement on the ‘frontier’ (periphery); and control over the natives and their land. These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony..’

    The literature on criminal deterrence is pretty interesting. Basically every serious criminologist (i.e. not the critical race theorists who disagree with incarcerating any black man for any reason) agrees that if you want to deter crime, you set punishments just high enough to matter and then drive up the apprehension rate as high as you can. A 0.01% risk of being executed for this crime doesn’t deter at all, and a 70% risk of doing a decade in prison deters almost absolutely.

It lessons crowding in the gang world, possibly removing a future shootout over turf, etc. It removes a criminal telling others what he did, enabling their crime. It can reduce the number of children he has. That is, crime has positive feedback. So reducing active criminals can look like deterrence when it really isn't.

    A lot criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.

    Now, it's possible that the literature you reference refutes all of these points, and is well-done research. But such is our world that I really don't believe anything I read when it contrasts with my observations.

    Crime is a good thing for the people who run: LA, SF, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Dallas, St. Louis, Philly, etc.

    They all happen to be black. Crime is like black is beautiful. It drives away gentrification (dead now for thirty years), drives away all investment, business, White people, Asians, Hispanics. It leaves blacks with complete and total control of these areas, which now and forever will belong to black people. Its what they wanted. Its why Soros funded all those DAs and Mayors. Being a Sabbatean Frankist he wants every city in the West to resemble Detroit.

    And yes it was crime not the declining US Auto industry that killed Detroit. More specifically, black people.

    And for Democrats, particularly the more forward thinking ones, turning every major city into a ruined Detroit is genius. It allows for unlimited dumped ballots, zero oversight, and a permanent majority. Even better, Whites and Hispanics can be taxed into poverty yearly and worked as serfs to make sure the new overlords, black people, live the high life like Snoop. Look at how beautiful Oakland and Detroit are for Dems, the uber rich, etc. They give them the moral legitimacy to enserf dirt people, manufacture votes as needed, and provide a base for what amounts to reverse Cossacks to put down White and now Latino aspirations not to eat bugs and watch 100% black black blackety black stuff on streaming in their shipping container "housing unit allotment"

    The Great Reset is not going to start itself with Richard Florida's cool cities. With every urban area looking like Detroit, its a dead cinch.

No, I am not saying that poverty causes crime – there is always a choice, and we should always enforce the laws – but still, this is how it is.

    There have been two major spikes in crime in the United States: one starting in 1888, and one in 1965. Gee, what happened then? Sure, importing criminals doesn’t help – but IMHO it’s because the labor market was flooded and real wages were crushed.

    Right now Japan is pretty peaceful and safe. But before WWII, when the pro-natalist policies of the elite caused dire crushing poverty, Japan was seething with violence and ready to tear itself apart.

    Race is a factor, sure, but there is no race that will not erupt in violence when the pressure is high enough.

    If you took Singapore, and took away the subsidized rents and healthcare, and completely opened the borders, and crushed everyone into poverty and homelessness, you’d see crime spike there as well, no matter how tough the police are. And in time, as wages fall, the police will themselves become corrupt and less effective…

    And it’s not just physical poverty per se, giving people food so they don’t starve is nice, but young men in particular need jobs that they can see as providing for a family.

    Note how peaceful Canada is compared to Mexico. The Canadians think it’s because they have a noble liberal mindset, but I think before too long they will realize that that’s not it. Canada is moving towards a massive boosting of population, and already wages are falling and rents are rising…. it may take a while, but that boring safe Canadian lifestyle is going to fray.

    Solve the shipping backup and rail theft problems by sending ships through the Panama Canal to Norfolk. It's happening, to a certain extent, already.

    P.S.: One of the dumbest things ever was the raising of the Bayonne Bridge at extreme expense, and, in all likelihood, inconvenience, in recent years. This was to allow Panamax ships to load and unload in Newark and Elizabeth. This Civil Engineering marvel, which I read about in the American Society of Civil Engineers journal, is totally unnecessary. They could have just improved facilities in Brooklyn and Bayonne, since I'm sure the facilities on Newark Bay also need to be improved, to handle these ships, in addition to the bridge raising. That may have been covered in the article. If so, I forgot that part.

    All of the above is aside from the issue of whether New York Bay and associated waterways are good places to send, or originate, shipments, and especially whether they will be in the future. At the very least, the massive capital investment for the greater glory of the Port of Newark was extreme madness, and shame on ASCE for celebrating it.

It was the best thing the Army ever did.

    My own experience in dealing with a large number of New Yorkers in a military Reserve unit was that, almost to a man, honesty was a joke, stealing was fine, sloughing off and claiming to have worked when it was obvious that they had not was perfectly acceptable, etc. Corruption was a way of life. For the few New Yorkers who aren't like this, don't take offense, but when you look around you know it's true.

    When I first joined the unit I noticed those in the HQ (located in another state) spoke disparagingly about the New Yorkers. At first I thought this was unfair, but soon I learned that it was entirely true.

    When things really turn south, Jews will abandon their “other” people of color allies by decamping to Israel. They won’t announce, “we are abandoning our fellow people of color Allie’s to move to a white country.” They will lament “growing antisemitism” and “lack of economic dynamism” along with “declining rule of law” in America. They will, of course, blame all those things and more on whites. Jews will never admit that they were the ones who broke America. It will be our fault for “not fulfilling the promise of multiculturalism.”

    Is that hard to believe? They abandoned Eastern Europe when they overbred their niche and a naive America was ripe, having been developed into a country by Anglo-Saxons.

    Without that heavy thumb on the scale…

    Jews like city living, and cities will be uninhabitable before anywhere else. Except for maybe heavily black areas of the rural south. There are not enough ethnic whites to elect a Giuliani-style anti-crime reformer in NYC. I remember Jews in New York lamenting Giuliani in public while they praised him in private. To make cities livable, the Jews and AWFLs will have to fight it out with blacks in the Democratic primaries. Or maybe not. Parties run their own primaries, and they can run them any way they like or not at all. Remember the last NYC primary, when the electoral officials “forgot” to zero out 100,000 “test” votes? Did forget, or did they get caught? Not as harsh a criticism as it sounds. In Virginia, the R’s don’t even have primaries for governor. You don’t want the Democrat? You have one choice.

    I wonder if American Jews will start pro-African “refugee” non-profits when they get to Israel. Is the “climb and subvert” programming sophisticated enough that it includes a “don’t do this in your own country” subroutine? I mean, Jews did well in America, but broke it anyway…

    I mentioned Bayonne and Brooklyn, and I don't think Newark/Elizabeth is likely to be any better. Point about Bayonne and Brooklyn is that ships only have to pass under the Verrazzano Narrows, which is about 40 years newer. Best is for the Panamax ships to go to Norfolk or somewhere else in the South.

    I visited NYC a few times 2002-2004, and the harbor didn't seem to be very active. What activity there was, was concentrated in Newark/Elizabeth and Brooklyn. In 2015 when I went to the East Coast for the Papal visit, I saw a ship tied up at the southern end of Bayonne.

    I think it will be quite a number of years before Panamax ships have the lions share of seaborne trade. The Bayonne Bridge (Bayonne/Staten Island) raising project involved cutting the bridge in half lengthways, rebuilding half the bridge, then rebuilding the other half. Fine for a small bridge in my neighborhood (this was actually done) but horrendously expensive for the Bayonne Bridge.

    In 1619 the betrayal started in a big way at Jamestown with the importation by diktat by some of the Anglo-Saxon planters of ‘Angolans’ as indentured servants, whom within a few decades would be being imported in as chattel slaves.

    This horrible template then established of importing alien labor so as to not pay the prevailing real time local labor rates to their own Anglo-Saxon people remains in place to this very day with wage slavery, ie the so called cheap labor/mass immigration system.

    With chattel slavery and its trade in the early 19th century having in reality been monetized, ie distilled down to it’s financial essence whilst profits were maximized (rather than the misnomer of it being ‘abolished’ as we are told) with the introduction of the wage slave ‘immigrant’ via the cheap labor/mass immigration system, like a cancer slavery had metastasized to the internal organs of the body politic, and now, unless halted, threatens the very life of the patient himself.

    Of course, minority alien elites and hangers on that might be involved in this would tend to have even less qualms about this sort of thing, as it’s not their people primarily being affected.

    Should any of the non-exploiting vast majority being negatively affected by the resulting depressed wages, cultural destruction and social chaos, and their ultimate genocide, start to get ‘uppity’ about this, utterly corrupt elites and their hangers on will have no problem siccing the imported alien population upon them in a divide and conquer, divide and rule manner.

    How this historically has worked is succinctly described below:

    ‘..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups; settlement on the ‘frontier’ (periphery); and control over the natives and their land. These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony..’

    Borders don’t really matter. The obsession some of you have with borders is hilariously absurd. If you have a tightknit community that doesn’t allow people, let alone outsiders, to do anything they want, then some line in the sand a thousand miles away is completely irrelevant.

    If anything our borders are guarded too tightly. Like some other people, I have driven a lot between the upper midwest and northern New England. It obviously is much quicker to go through Canada. But even as a law-abiding, cleancut hhhhwhite US citizen, on more than one occasion I have gone hundreds of miles out of my way in order to avoid having to leave the country because the US border guards are such utter pieces of shit. The ones at airports are equally demonic. And obviously they don’t treat foreigners any better. Everyone is treated like garbage at our borders, and DHS is among the most opaque and unaccountable departments in the US government, which is saying a lot.

    And to echo Ron Unz, the biggest problems in our country have little to nothing to do with immigration. The elites use hatred of immigrants in order to distract stupid people from much bigger problems. The joggers who rob these trains are not of an immigrant background. The people who burned the country down in 2020 were not immigrants.

    That’s the implementation of compulsory public school.

    In Britain around that time they replaced an effective non-state sheriff solution with a state police solution, starting a century-long rise in crime. I would be unsurprised to find that around the 1880s USG also replaced its crime-suppression technology with a federalized mockery of same.

    Note how peaceful Canada is compared to Mexico.

    Assuming a constant governing principle, two countries will draw from the same relative sections of the population, so the only variable is the average quality of the population.

    Then you look at the Moscow Metro and realize governing principle matters a great deal. Average Russian IQ is lower than America’s. However, Moscow concentrates high IQ, whereas DC is something like 50% Bantu. Personnel is policy but culture decides which fractions gets chosen as personnel.

    The first (Mike Ade) video shows and has the narrator commenting that the train is on “two separate tracks.” In this section of track, just east of the actual inter-modal terminal, there are numerous switches to allow trains to switch from one track to another. A damaged switch (or one malfunctioning because of debris) could be responsible for part of a train crossing to a second track and another part of the train continuing on the first track.

    From: Interface, the Journal of Wheel/Rail Interaction:

    “Switch Point Derailments: Is it the point or the wheel?”

    “No other type of derailment causes as much angst among railroaders as the switch point derailment.”

    That reminded me of a personal story I had completely forgotten about. When I was about 12, me and my friends [sounds so much better than "my friends and I"] placed some handful-sized rocks on the tracks, fairly near the train station itself. We then ran to a hiding spot to watch what would happen when the train passed. We were neither trying nor expecting to derail the train, just... well, I'm not entirely sure what we were thinking. The train pulverized the rocks and didn't seem affected at all.

    (We were hiding close enough to the station that we were quickly spotted. I have no idea who was on duty there, but it was a big, important station, so it was surprising that the only guy sent to catch us was this out of shape chubster whom we easily outran - although to his credit he gave chase for a lot longer than you might think by looking at him.)

    Crime is a good thing for the people who run: LA, SF, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Dallas, St. Louis, Philly, etc.

    They all happen to be black. Crime is like black is beautiful. It drives away gentrification (dead now for thirty years), drives away all investment, business, White people, Asians, Hispanics. It leaves blacks with complete and total control of these areas, which now and forever will belong to black people. Its what they wanted. Its why Soros funded all those DAs and Mayors. Being a Sabbatean Frankist he wants every city in the West to resemble Detroit.

    And yes it was crime not the declining US Auto industry that killed Detroit. More specifically, black people.

    And for Democrats, particularly the more forward thinking ones, turning every major city into a ruined Detroit is genius. It allows for unlimited dumped ballots, zero oversight, and a permanent majority. Even better, Whites and Hispanics can be taxed into poverty yearly and worked as serfs to make sure the new overlords, black people, live the high life like Snoop. Look at how beautiful Oakland and Detroit are for Dems, the uber rich, etc. They give them the moral legitimacy to enserf dirt people, manufacture votes as needed, and provide a base for what amounts to reverse Cossacks to put down White and now Latino aspirations not to eat bugs and watch 100% black black blackety black stuff on streaming in their shipping container "housing unit allotment"

    The Great Reset is not going to start itself with Richard Florida's cool cities. With every urban area looking like Detroit, its a dead cinch.

    Thousands of Central American migrants were back on the move toward the US border after dedicated Mexico City metro trains whisked them to the outskirts of the capital and drivers began offering rides north
    At the Line 2 terminus, migrants began making their way to a main highway to resume walking and hitchhiking with the tacit approval of Mexican officials. Near a major toll plaza about 19 miles north of the city, Mexico state police and human rights officials helped load men, women, and children onto eighteen-wheelers and asked passing buses and trucks if they would carry migrants. Maria Yesenia Perez, a 41-year-old who left La Ceiba, Honduras nearly a month ago with her 8-year-old daughter, said she was prepared to wait to gain entry at the US border. “I decided to come (with the caravan) to help my family,” she said, before she and her daughter were hoisted onto the back of a semitrailer. Perez is now one of roughly 4,000 migrants who plan to proceed to the city of Queretaro — a state capital 124 miles to the northwest — and then possibly to Guadalajara, Culiacan, Hermosillo, and eventually Tijuana on the US border. Whereas migrants like her carried tiny knapsacks with bare essentials in Mexico’s tropical south, their belongings swelled noticeably after a multiday stop in Mexico City. Many are now hauling bundles of blankets, sleeping bags, and heavy clothing to protect against colder temperatures in the northern part of the country.

For the few New Yorkers who aren't like this, don't take offense, but when you look around you know it's true.

    Our curse is an “elite” hostile to actual Americans and their interests. Get rid of them, then you can close the borders
     
    In 1619 the betrayal started in a big way at Jamestown with the importation by diktat by some of the Anglo-Saxon planters of 'Angolans' as indentured servants, whom within a few decades would be being imported in as chattel slaves.

    This horrible template then established of importing alien labor so as to not pay the prevailing real time local labor rates to their own Anglo-Saxon people remains in place to this very day with wage slavery, ie the so called cheap labor/mass immigration system.

    With chattel slavery and its trade in the early 19th century having in reality been monetized, ie distilled down to it's financial essence whilst profits were maximized (rather than the misnomer of it being 'abolished' as we are told) with the introduction of the wage slave 'immigrant' via the cheap labor/mass immigration system, like a cancer slavery had metastasized to the internal organs of the body politic, and now, unless halted, threatens the very life of the patient himself.

    Of course, minority alien elites and hangers on that might be involved in this would tend to have even less qualms about this sort of thing, as it's not their people primarily being affected.

    Should any of the non-exploiting vast majority being negatively affected by the resulting depressed wages, cultural destruction and social chaos, and their ultimate genocide, start to get 'uppity' about this, utterly corrupt elites and their hangers on will have no problem siccing the imported alien population upon them in a divide and conquer, divide and rule manner.

    How this historically has worked is succinctly described below:

    '..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups; settlement on the ‘frontier’ (periphery); and control over the natives and their land. These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony..’

    She was sterile from then on. Died from breast cancer at age 51 (whether or not that has anything to do with it.)
     
    There have been epidemiological studies done which indicate that there is a correlation between abortion and breast cancer. Although this article is by a right-to-life organization please note the sources cited:

    https://rtl.org/educational-materials/abortion-breast-cancer-link/

    Replies: @Alden

    There is really no link between abortion and breast cancer.

    The link is between (1 )never having been pregnant and (2 ) never undergoing a completed pregnancy known as child birth. Late miscarriages count as a completed childbirth. Very early ones don’t for some reason.

    This was noted in early medieval times. Celibate nuns had a high rate of breast cancer. Prostitutes had a high rate of uterine and vaginal cancer. But not because they did or did not have children. Because they inherited the cancer genes.

    Cancer is mostly genetic. Women who don’t inherit cancer genes and never get pregnant or have several abortions don’t get cancer.

    Women who inherit the cancer gene and have several children do get cancer. I’ve known several families grandmother mother and now as the daughters are reaching 50 the grand daughters. And I know plenty of women in 60s and 70s who never had children never got pregnant and will never get cancer.

    Tobacco and lung , throat, larynx etc cancer. It isn’t tobacco smoke that caused all those cancers. It was the tobacco smoke affecting people who inherited the cancer gene. Back when all those anti tobacco lawsuits were going on the tobacco companies successfully proved only about 10 percent of smokers got cancer.

    I’ve known men like my dad and a brother who smoked since their teens . Never got cancer.

    Retail restaurant factory construction hospital workers couldn’t smoke while working. But office workers could. By early afternoon the smoke was visible. Office workers smoked 2 packs a day 8:30.to 5. And another pack after work. But only about 10 percent got cancer.

    Smoking was never allowed inside courtrooms. But the hallways outside the courtrooms are lined with benches and crowded with numerous people standing. You could barely breathe in courthouse halls by 10 am.

    Asbestos and other environmental workplace contaminates do seem to cause cancer by themselves in some but not other workers.

    Genetics rule.

    The anti abortion people are very sincere. And base their position on Do Not Kill. But the abortion causes cancer argument is bogus. Its the correlation of never undergoing a completed pregnancy combined with inherited genes.

    It’s mostly genetics the never having undergone a completed pregnancy and not smoking tobacco doesn’t cause cancer. They correlate with the genetics.

    Ask anyone who has cancer. There’s always a history of it in the family. That’s why there’s a long list of hereditary diseases on every medical form we fill out.

    Wow that's an excellent comment.

    My father's division of a Dow Jones industrial used asbestos to manufacture some pretty great products. I learned all about them, and I still have some mementoes made of asbestos cement. He and I lived through the whole class action lawsuit thing, all the way to chapter 11 bankruptcy, the sale of his division to investors from Taiwan, and the eventual purchase of his company by Warren Buffett in the guise of Berkshire Hathaway.

    My nice inheritance would have been a magnitude bigger if not for the asbestos thing. Dad was heavily invested via stock options.

    He told me that every one of the men who came down with cancer was a smoker. No non-smokers ever got sick from the asbestos fibers in the factories. Make of that what you will.

    Dad chain smoked and drank Scotch until he died at 85, when his heart stopped as he was getting out of his Lincoln in the driveway, coming home from the store, where he had just bought cigarettes. He never got cancer through all those years running factories manufacturing asbestos products.

    It is genetics indeed, which in some cases is susceptible to environmental factors.

    Crime is a good thing for the people who run: LA, SF, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Dallas, St. Louis, Philly, etc.

    They all happen to be black. Crime is like black is beautiful. It drives away gentrification (dead now for thirty years), drives away all investment, business, White people, Asians, Hispanics. It leaves blacks with complete and total control of these areas, which now and forever will belong to black people. Its what they wanted. Its why Soros funded all those DAs and Mayors. Being a Sabbatean Frankist he wants every city in the West to resemble Detroit.

    And yes it was crime not the declining US Auto industry that killed Detroit. More specifically, black people.

    And for Democrats, particularly the more forward thinking ones, turning every major city into a ruined Detroit is genius. It allows for unlimited dumped ballots, zero oversight, and a permanent majority. Even better, Whites and Hispanics can be taxed into poverty yearly and worked as serfs to make sure the new overlords, black people, live the high life like Snoop. Look at how beautiful Oakland and Detroit are for Dems, the uber rich, etc. They give them the moral legitimacy to enserf dirt people, manufacture votes as needed, and provide a base for what amounts to reverse Cossacks to put down White and now Latino aspirations not to eat bugs and watch 100% black black blackety black stuff on streaming in their shipping container "housing unit allotment"

    The literature on criminal deterrence is pretty interesting. Basically every serious criminologist (i.e. not the critical race theorists who disagree with incarcerating any black man for any reason) agrees that if you want to deter crime, you set punishments just high enough to matter and then drive up the apprehension rate as high as you can. A 0.01% risk of being executed for this crime doesn't deter at all, and a 70% risk of doing a decade in prison deters almost absolutely.

    The sky high murder rate across the border reflects the fact that their murder clearance rate is too low to deter, and our clearance rate is still high enough to deter.

    While I can imagine this being true for white-collar crime, I doubt it works for most crime; at least not in the way we normally think of as deterrence.

    Putting criminals in jail removes a known thug from society over his most violent years. It lessons crowding in the gang world, possibly removing a future shootout over turf, etc. It removes a criminal telling others what he did, enabling their crime. It can reduce the number of children he has. That is, crime has positive feedback. So reducing active criminals can look like deterrence when it really isn’t.

    A lot criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.

    Now, it’s possible that the literature you reference refutes all of these points, and is well-done research. But such is our world that I really don’t believe anything I read when it contrasts with my observations.

    It's probably the case that there is a baseline of criminal conduct engaged in by impulsive criminal types for whom deterrence by law enforcement and prosecution is not particularly effective at any given point. My guess is that this varies by demographics to a degree in the manner that you would expect. But even the dumbest, most impulsive criminals tend not to rob and rape right in view of the police - this must be for a reason. And then there are criminal enterprises which can be quite loose - i.e., drug distribution networks, which generate not only drug dealing but other attendant forms of violent crime and disorder. If criminal enterprises are not profitable because they're serially decapitated by prosecutions which remove the members of their structures with long term incarceration the quality of the criminal enterprise's leadership constantly diminishes until it is essentially defunct. This appears to have been what happened with the crack epidemic after the renewed approach to crime of the 1990s.

    The solution to violent crime is simple: a law prohibiting the possession of firearms by the very small demographic which exhibits a wildly disproportionate tendency toward violent crime, and then stop-and-frisk whenever and wherever they may be.

    If another demographic steps up to fill the gap, they get the same treatment. So it's fair as fair can be. Also, it's already been proven effective, in NYC from 1995 to 2015.

    I'd strongly advise against shipping anything through Bayonne. The Army used to have a port called Military Ocean Terminal Bayonne, NJ, where theft from goods in transit was rampant and the mob was involved. The base commander tried to put a stop to it and the mob let him know very directly that his life was at risk. The base closed in 1999 and the site was redeveloped for other purposes. It was the best thing the Army ever did.

    My own experience in dealing with a large number of New Yorkers in a military Reserve unit was that, almost to a man, honesty was a joke, stealing was fine, sloughing off and claiming to have worked when it was obvious that they had not was perfectly acceptable, etc. Corruption was a way of life. For the few New Yorkers who aren't like this, don't take offense, but when you look around you know it's true.

    When I first joined the unit I noticed those in the HQ (located in another state) spoke disparagingly about the New Yorkers. At first I thought this was unfair, but soon I learned that it was entirely true.

Point about Bayonne and Brooklyn is that ships only have to pass under the Verrazzano Narrows, which is about 40 years newer. Best is for the Panamax ships to go to Norfolk or somewhere else in the South.

    I visited NYC a few times 2002-2004, and the harbor didn’t seem to be very active. What activity there was, was concentrated in Newark/Elizabeth and Brooklyn. In 2015 when I went to the East Coast for the Papal visit, I saw a ship tied up at the southern end of Bayonne.

    I think it will be quite a number of years before Panamax ships have the lions share of seaborne trade. The Bayonne Bridge (Bayonne/Staten Island) raising project involved cutting the bridge in half lengthways, rebuilding half the bridge, then rebuilding the other half.

    @smetana

    I think the trains do go there, but then the rail lines take them back north through Los Angeles proper before going back south and east. All of that looted cargo is coming out of Long Beach and San Pedro.

    Those routes were first built 100+ years ago in response to the local geography (i.e. the routes north out of Long Beach follow the Los Angeles River basin and the entire LA basin is surrounded by mountains). This was also well before all of the urban development. It would be very hard and very expensive to move those lines now to bypass downtown Los Angeles.

    Another issue is that many of those lines are buried and run in trenches below grade, so it's not especially visible to someone (ie police patrol) driving by. Very easy for the criminals to hide out of sight, especially at night.

    That being said, given the supply chain issues with trucks at these two ports, there is no law that says these ships have to be unloaded in Los Angeles. However, the entire US west coast is very mountainous right up to the ocean and there are only a few places appropriate for ports that are also accessible to rail lines and other ground transportation. These places today are all major shithole cities controlled by democrats. San Diego is the only one that isn't and the geography and existing development there (ie US Navy) makes it hard to expand the port system.

    Los Angeles is what it is today because it is one of those places. The city didn't grow because of Hollywood, it grew because the terrain was unusual for the west coast and facilitated industrial development and transportation.

    Whether it was overthrowing an Emperor or King by a usurper, or Masons in late 1700s America and France, communists in 1918-1925 European Capitol and major cities, or what’s going on now in America’s cities it’s revolutionary strategy and tactics. They are already in control.

    It’s nothing new. Usually it succeeds. Sometimes it fails as when Italy Hungary Austria Germany smashed the communist take overs after WW1.

    It’s taken about 62 years for it to happen in America. Standard revolutionary tactics and strategy. Use low life criminals and riots combined with usurpers at the highest levels of society. Trump most probably won the 2020 election. He was usurped electronically. Wasn’t murdered in prison like William 2, Richard 2 and Henry 6 Louis 16 his wife sister and son or the many royals and government officials murdered by the European Bolshevik Jews and liberals in 1918-1925

    But Trump was deposed electronically. Had he won it’s extremely possible he would have been assassinated .

    And anti fa BLM Soros elections of DAs and mayors were all funded and organized as efficiently as the American and French masons were late 1700s.

    Self employed truck drivers avoid LA because of the environmental restrictions and costs of California, they have plenty of work elsewhere. It also takes too long to be given a load at the LA port, it can take as much as two to three days from arrival to departure. Another issue is cargo ships are all large these days, so they can’t use the smaller ports, too much has to go through LA.

    I'd strongly advise against shipping anything through Bayonne. The Army used to have a port called Military Ocean Terminal Bayonne, NJ, where theft from goods in transit was rampant and the mob was involved. The base commander tried to put a stop to it and the mob let him know very directly that his life was at risk. The base closed in 1999 and the site was redeveloped for other purposes. It was the best thing the Army ever did.

    My own experience in dealing with a large number of New Yorkers in a military Reserve unit was that, almost to a man, honesty was a joke, stealing was fine, sloughing off and claiming to have worked when it was obvious that they had not was perfectly acceptable, etc. Corruption was a way of life. For the few New Yorkers who aren't like this, don't take offense, but when you look around you know it's true.

    When I first joined the unit I noticed those in the HQ (located in another state) spoke disparagingly about the New Yorkers. At first I thought this was unfair, but soon I learned that it was entirely true.

    Don't put another port in Bayonne. You'll just get L.A.-level theft with New York accents.

    The literature on criminal deterrence is pretty interesting. Basically every serious criminologist (i.e. not the critical race theorists who disagree with incarcerating any black man for any reason) agrees that if you want to deter crime, you set punishments just high enough to matter and then drive up the apprehension rate as high as you can. A 0.01% risk of being executed for this crime doesn't deter at all, and a 70% risk of doing a decade in prison deters almost absolutely.

    The sky high murder rate across the border reflects the fact that their murder clearance rate is too low to deter, and our clearance rate is still high enough to deter.

    That reminded me of a personal story I had completely forgotten about. When I was about 12, me and my friends [sounds so much better than “my friends and I”] placed some handful-sized rocks on the tracks, fairly near the train station itself. We then ran to a hiding spot to watch what would happen when the train passed. We were neither trying nor expecting to derail the train, just… well, I’m not entirely sure what we were thinking. The train pulverized the rocks and didn’t seem affected at all.

    (We were hiding close enough to the station that we were quickly spotted. I have no idea who was on duty there, but it was a big, important station, so it was surprising that the only guy sent to catch us was this out of shape chubster whom we easily outran – although to his credit he gave chase for a lot longer than you might think by looking at him.)

    Marion Delgado was a 5 year-old Chicano American boy whose image and story made the inside pages of Life magazine on June 2, 1947. The caption below the photograph read: "With a defiant smile, 5-year-old Marion Delgado shows how he placed a 25-pound concrete slab on the tracks and wrecked a passenger train."

    On May 20, 1947, he tried to crack the slab by bouncing it on the rails. When that did not work, he decided to let the Feather River Express passenger train do the heavy work of cracking the concrete chunk and he laid it across a rail near his Decoto, California home. "At 11:10 a.m. the Feather River Express boomed into Decoto at 50 mph. There was a crash. The engine jumped the rails, tore up 300 feet of track, hit a switch and turned over. The engineer and four other people were injured." When asked by the police, according to the Life article: "Marion shrugged, 'I couldn't break that big rock by myself', he said, 'so I decided to let the train do it.'"

    He became a "hero" to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) (then under the control of the Weathermen) when they published the Delgado photograph and caption on the cover of their newspaper, New Left Notes. Various Weathermen, including Bill Ayers, continued to invoke the name "Marion Delgado" for decades afterward. SDS called out the name "Marion Delgado" to signal an attack by the Weathermen on the Drake Hotel during the Days of Rage protests in 1969. Additionally, Bernardine Dohrn used the name during a Weatherwomen rally. [Wikipedia]

    The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles are a few minutes' drive from the border of Orange County. Send the trains there, not L.A.

    Replies: @JR Ewing

    I think the trains do go there, but then the rail lines take them back north through Los Angeles proper before going back south and east. All of that looted cargo is coming out of Long Beach and San Pedro.

    Those routes were first built 100+ years ago in response to the local geography (i.e. the routes north out of Long Beach follow the Los Angeles River basin and the entire LA basin is surrounded by mountains). This was also well before all of the urban development. It would be very hard and very expensive to move those lines now to bypass downtown Los Angeles.

    Another issue is that many of those lines are buried and run in trenches below grade, so it’s not especially visible to someone (ie police patrol) driving by. Very easy for the criminals to hide out of sight, especially at night.

    That being said, given the supply chain issues with trucks at these two ports, there is no law that says these ships have to be unloaded in Los Angeles. However, the entire US west coast is very mountainous right up to the ocean and there are only a few places appropriate for ports that are also accessible to rail lines and other ground transportation. These places today are all major shithole cities controlled by democrats. San Diego is the only one that isn’t and the geography and existing development there (ie US Navy) makes it hard to expand the port system.

    Los Angeles is what it is today because it is one of those places. The city didn’t grow because of Hollywood, it grew because the terrain was unusual for the west coast and facilitated industrial development and transportation.

    “Solve the shipping backup and rail theft problems by sending ships through the Panama Canal to Norfolk. It’s happening, to a certain extent, already.”

    The problem is this: The Panama Canal from what I understand, can only accommodate container ships to the capacity of 5,000 TEU’s (20′ equivalent sized units), I’m assuming because of the depth of the canal. The biggest container ships carry over 15,000 TEU’s, so the PC is not an option.

    Also, the train that derailed and the train being robbed in that other video are hauling domestic containers, not ocean containers. (I can explain the difference and why there’s a difference but the info is out there.)

    About 50% of the freight carried in domestic containers has been transloaded from ocean containers on or near the ports it came into. (the freight from 3 40′ ocean containers can be fit into the space of 2 53′ domestic containers, or so they say) This means there is a domestic bill of lading generated at the ground level by the transload facility with information that gets uploaded into a customer portal provided by the railroad. The portal will have all of the transit info so the customer can track their shipment. So here is a theory I have: Dock supervisor Jerome (or Juan) at the transload facility has access to the takes a quick pic of the screen with the cell phone he’s not supposed to have while on the clock and sends it to his homie Craig (Jose) who stay on da souf side of Chicago, so now Craig/Jose knows which container all the flat screens are going to be sitting in, on which track, at which rail terminal, on what day.

    Borders don't really matter. The obsession some of you have with borders is hilariously absurd. If you have a tightknit community that doesn't allow people, let alone outsiders, to do anything they want, then some line in the sand a thousand miles away is completely irrelevant.

    If anything our borders are guarded too tightly. Like some other people, I have driven a lot between the upper midwest and northern New England. It obviously is much quicker to go through Canada. But even as a law-abiding, cleancut hhhhwhite US citizen, on more than one occasion I have gone hundreds of miles out of my way in order to avoid having to leave the country because the US border guards are such utter pieces of shit. The ones at airports are equally demonic. And obviously they don't treat foreigners any better. Everyone is treated like garbage at our borders, and DHS is among the most opaque and unaccountable departments in the US government, which is saying a lot.

    And to echo Ron Unz, the biggest problems in our country have little to nothing to do with immigration. The elites use hatred of immigrants in order to distract stupid people from much bigger problems. The joggers who rob these trains are not of an immigrant background. The people who burned the country down in 2020 were not immigrants. The people in the media and government who force toxic injections on us, enslave us through debt, cover for joggers, and promote hatred of whites have been here for many generations now.

    Can you take a long vacation in Romania to see how you like it? You don’t have to pack it all up and move; you can do it slower and more methodically. If I were you, I’d set it as a goal, pursue it slowly, being prepared to stop the process if you encounter a derailer. Be mentally prepared to move, while being mentally prepared to stay.

    Los Angels might have a small black population according to the census. But not everyone fills out the census. And blacks are all over Los Angeles. The shopping streets are full of them. Mini malls, gas stations , parks, bus benches anywhere they can ask for money, hang out buy lottery tickets and malt liquor sit down on a park bench bus bench bench in front of a library. They are all over.

    Officially, my LA zip code has less than 1 percent blacks. But homeless black men are all over. They stay on the main streets. Don’t go more than a block or 2 into the residential streets.

    Union Station in downtown Los Angeles serves more than 100,000 commenters daily. Plus long distance travelers and tourists. It’s one of those grand old big city train stations. Also has, miracles of miracles, an inexpensive parking lot that always has available spaces. Plus buses to numerous airports all over S California. Plus a high end restaurant. Also has some nice courtyards for waiting passengers to walk and sit in. Also very well laid out great floor plan. There’s an architectural term for public building that are well laid out and arranged I forget what it is.

    Most every person who works there is black or Hispanic. A massive bedbug infestation a few years ago. Infestation not due to the homeless Americans who live there. Due to fifth world immigrants bringing bedbugs in their luggage.

    When things really turn south, Jews will abandon their “other” people of color allies by decamping to Israel. They won’t announce, “we are abandoning our fellow people of color Allie’s to move to a white country.” They will lament “growing antisemitism” and “lack of economic dynamism” along with “declining rule of law” in America. They will, of course, blame all those things and more on whites. Jews will never admit that they were the ones who broke America. It will be our fault for “not fulfilling the promise of multiculturalism.”

    Is that hard to believe? They abandoned Eastern Europe when they overbred their niche and a naive America was ripe, having been developed into a country by Anglo-Saxons.

    Without that heavy thumb on the scale…

    Jews like city living, and cities will be uninhabitable before anywhere else. Except for maybe heavily black areas of the rural south. There are not enough ethnic whites to elect a Giuliani-style anti-crime reformer in NYC. I remember Jews in New York lamenting Giuliani in public while they praised him in private. To make cities livable, the Jews and AWFLs will have to fight it out with blacks in the Democratic primaries. Or maybe not. Parties run their own primaries, and they can run them any way they like or not at all. Remember the last NYC primary, when the electoral officials “forgot” to zero out 100,000 “test” votes? Did forget, or did they get caught? Not as harsh a criticism as it sounds. In Virginia, the R’s don’t even have primaries for governor. You don’t want the Democrat? You have one choice.

    I wonder if American Jews will start pro-African “refugee” non-profits when they get to Israel. Is the “climb and subvert” programming sophisticated enough that it includes a “don’t do this in your own country” subroutine? I mean, Jews did well in America, but broke it anyway…

    You really don't understand Russian geography. The Jews in America (who came in pre-Soviet times, which is most of them) were from the Russian Empire, not from Russia. Specifically they were from the Pale of Settlement, which was the territory that Russia acquired when the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth dissolved. This territory corresponds to Poland and to the western pieces of the USSR that became independent from Russia upon the dissolution of the USSR - Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, etc. Russia itself had few Jews before the partition of Poland - Jews were largely banned from living in Russia proper. So if the Jews of American were to "go back where they came from" , in most cases it would not be to the territory of Russia today (unless Putin takes back the Pale).

    > A 0.01% risk of being executed for this crime doesn’t deter at all, and a 70% risk of doing a decade in prison deters almost absolutely.

    While I can imagine this being true for white-collar crime, I doubt it works for most crime; at least not in the way we normally think of as deterrence.

    Putting criminals in jail removes a known thug from society over his most violent years. It lessons crowding in the gang world, possibly removing a future shootout over turf, etc. It removes a criminal telling others what he did, enabling their crime. It can reduce the number of children he has. That is, crime has positive feedback. So reducing active criminals can look like deterrence when it really isn't.

    A lot criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.

    Now, it's possible that the literature you reference refutes all of these points, and is well-done research. But such is our world that I really don't believe anything I read when it contrasts with my observations.

    Replies: @Alec Leamas (working from home), @HammerJack

    A lot criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.

    It’s probably the case that there is a baseline of criminal conduct engaged in by impulsive criminal types for whom deterrence by law enforcement and prosecution is not particularly effective at any given point. My guess is that this varies by demographics to a degree in the manner that you would expect. But even the dumbest, most impulsive criminals tend not to rob and rape right in view of the police – this must be for a reason. And then there are criminal enterprises which can be quite loose – i.e., drug distribution networks, which generate not only drug dealing but other attendant forms of violent crime and disorder. If criminal enterprises are not profitable because they’re serially decapitated by prosecutions which remove the members of their structures with long term incarceration the quality of the criminal enterprise’s leadership constantly diminishes until it is essentially defunct. This appears to have been what happened with the crack epidemic after the renewed approach to crime of the 1990s.

    The nurse died of her injuries. She did work at the big La County USC hospital complex nearby. Attack didn’t happen in Union Station. Happened at one of the bus stops nearby. Probably a bus that goes from the station to the hospital. Attack happened at 5 AM Name Sandra Shell. She was 70 years old. Refused to retire. Well, this old lady will never go within miles of that train station ever again. Bad enough going through Inglewood to get to the airport.

    Major reason nurses unionized for higher pay in the 1960s 70s was their desperate need for high enough wages that they could buy cars and keep them in good running condition. Original idea was nurses would be like the Catholic hospitals nursing nuns . Live in dorms in the hospitals.

    Then the plan was they’d live with family or roommates and use public transit and not need high wages. . But as the black criminals conquered the big cities public transit for evening and night shift workers became very dangerous. Plus, it’s t’difficult to move a university hospital factory government building to a safer neighborhood after a black conquest.

    Nursing and restaurant work became very dangerous. The nurses unionized and bought cars. Cars instead of public transit really really reduces the chances of being attacked

    That reminded me of a personal story I had completely forgotten about. When I was about 12, me and my friends [sounds so much better than "my friends and I"] placed some handful-sized rocks on the tracks, fairly near the train station itself. We then ran to a hiding spot to watch what would happen when the train passed. We were neither trying nor expecting to derail the train, just... well, I'm not entirely sure what we were thinking. The train pulverized the rocks and didn't seem affected at all.

    (We were hiding close enough to the station that we were quickly spotted. I have no idea who was on duty there, but it was a big, important station, so it was surprising that the only guy sent to catch us was this out of shape chubster whom we easily outran - although to his credit he gave chase for a lot longer than you might think by looking at him.)

    Marion Delgado was a 5 year-old Chicano American boy whose image and story made the inside pages of Life magazine on June 2, 1947. The caption below the photograph read: “With a defiant smile, 5-year-old Marion Delgado shows how he placed a 25-pound concrete slab on the tracks and wrecked a passenger train.”

    On May 20, 1947, he tried to crack the slab by bouncing it on the rails. When that did not work, he decided to let the Feather River Express passenger train do the heavy work of cracking the concrete chunk and he laid it across a rail near his Decoto, California home. “At 11:10 a.m. the Feather River Express boomed into Decoto at 50 mph. There was a crash. The engine jumped the rails, tore up 300 feet of track, hit a switch and turned over. The engineer and four other people were injured.” When asked by the police, according to the Life article: “Marion shrugged, ‘I couldn’t break that big rock by myself’, he said, ‘so I decided to let the train do it.’”

    He became a “hero” to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) (then under the control of the Weathermen) when they published the Delgado photograph and caption on the cover of their newspaper, New Left Notes. Various Weathermen, including Bill Ayers, continued to invoke the name “Marion Delgado” for decades afterward. SDS called out the name “Marion Delgado” to signal an attack by the Weathermen on the Drake Hotel during the Days of Rage protests in 1969. Additionally, Bernardine Dohrn used the name during a Weatherwomen rally. [Wikipedia]

    You really don’t understand Russian geography. The Jews in America (who came in pre-Soviet times, which is most of them) were from the Russian Empire, not from Russia. Specifically they were from the Pale of Settlement, which was the territory that Russia acquired when the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth dissolved. This territory corresponds to Poland and to the western pieces of the USSR that became independent from Russia upon the dissolution of the USSR – Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, Moldova, etc. Russia itself had few Jews before the partition of Poland – Jews were largely banned from living in Russia proper. So if the Jews of American were to “go back where they came from” , in most cases it would not be to the territory of Russia today (unless Putin takes back the Pale).

    Union Station in downtown Los Angeles serves more than 100,000 commenters daily. Plus long distance travelers and tourists. It’s one of those grand old big city train stations. Also has, miracles of miracles, an inexpensive parking lot that always has available spaces. Plus buses to numerous airports all over S California. Plus a high end restaurant. Also has some nice courtyards for waiting passengers to walk and sit in. Also very well laid out great floor plan. There’s an architectural term for public building that are well laid out and arranged I forget what it is.

    Most every person who works there is black or Hispanic. A massive bedbug infestation a few years ago. Infestation not due to the homeless Americans who live there. Due to fifth world immigrants bringing bedbugs in their luggage.

    The article said county nurse. The big La County USC hospital is close. She probably commuted through Union Station every day.

    Not many blacks in California but they seem to commit most of the crime.

    Replies: @Alden

    The nurse died of her injuries. She did work at the big La County USC hospital complex nearby. Attack didn’t happen in Union Station. Happened at one of the bus stops nearby. Probably a bus that goes from the station to the hospital. Attack happened at 5 AM Name Sandra Shell. She was 70 years old. Refused to retire. Well, this old lady will never go within miles of that train station ever again. Bad enough going through Inglewood to get to the airport.

    Major reason nurses unionized for higher pay in the 1960s 70s was their desperate need for high enough wages that they could buy cars and keep them in good running condition. Original idea was nurses would be like the Catholic hospitals nursing nuns . Live in dorms in the hospitals.

    Then the plan was they’d live with family or roommates and use public transit and not need high wages. . But as the black criminals conquered the big cities public transit for evening and night shift workers became very dangerous. Plus, it’s t’difficult to move a university hospital factory government building to a safer neighborhood after a black conquest.

    Nursing and restaurant work became very dangerous. The nurses unionized and bought cars. Cars instead of public transit really really reduces the chances of being attacked

    There is really no link between abortion and breast cancer.

    The link is between (1 )never having been pregnant and (2 ) never undergoing a completed pregnancy known as child birth. Late miscarriages count as a completed childbirth. Very early ones don’t for some reason.

    This was noted in early medieval times. Celibate nuns had a high rate of breast cancer. Prostitutes had a high rate of uterine and vaginal cancer. But not because they did or did not have children. Because they inherited the cancer genes.

    Cancer is mostly genetic. Women who don’t inherit cancer genes and never get pregnant or have several abortions don’t get cancer.

    Women who inherit the cancer gene and have several children do get cancer. I’ve known several families grandmother mother and now as the daughters are reaching 50 the grand daughters. And I know plenty of women in 60s and 70s who never had children never got pregnant and will never get cancer.

    Tobacco and lung , throat, larynx etc cancer. It isn’t tobacco smoke that caused all those cancers. It was the tobacco smoke affecting people who inherited the cancer gene. Back when all those anti tobacco lawsuits were going on the tobacco companies successfully proved only about 10 percent of smokers got cancer.

    I’ve known men like my dad and a brother who smoked since their teens . Never got cancer.

    Retail restaurant factory construction hospital workers couldn’t smoke while working. But office workers could. By early afternoon the smoke was visible. Office workers smoked 2 packs a day 8:30.to 5. And another pack after work. But only about 10 percent got cancer.

    Smoking was never allowed inside courtrooms. But the hallways outside the courtrooms are lined with benches and crowded with numerous people standing. You could barely breathe in courthouse halls by 10 am.

    Asbestos and other environmental workplace contaminates do seem to cause cancer by themselves in some but not other workers.

    Genetics rule.

    The anti abortion people are very sincere. And base their position on Do Not Kill. But the abortion causes cancer argument is bogus. Its the correlation of never undergoing a completed pregnancy combined with inherited genes.

    It’s mostly genetics the never having undergone a completed pregnancy and not smoking tobacco doesn’t cause cancer. They correlate with the genetics.

    Ask anyone who has cancer. There’s always a history of it in the family. That’s why there’s a long list of hereditary diseases on every medical form we fill out.

    While I can imagine this being true for white-collar crime, I doubt it works for most crime; at least not in the way we normally think of as deterrence.

    Putting criminals in jail removes a known thug from society over his most violent years. It lessons crowding in the gang world, possibly removing a future shootout over turf, etc. It removes a criminal telling others what he did, enabling their crime. It can reduce the number of children he has. That is, crime has positive feedback. So reducing active criminals can look like deterrence when it really isn't.

    A lot criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.

    If another demographic steps up to fill the gap, they get the same treatment. So it’s fair as fair can be. Also, it’s already been proven effective, in NYC from 1995 to 2015.

    "Store policy" is to treat every customer like a potential thief and therefore to inconvenience every customer equally, even when the manager admits that they have a pretty good profile of who is more likely to shoplift and in fact admittedly have a collection of regulars whom they know well who do most of the shoplifting.

    He did not appreciate me saying that but he also did not disagree that the policy wasn't particularly logical nor fair nor respectful to the vast majority of their customers who in fact are not thieves but are presumed to be out of some misplaced sense of equity.

Sometimes they use 'believed to be unprovoked,' as if it could possibly have been provoked and the provocation of disrespecting a Black Man might explain it. But it's almost always 'random.'

    The criminal's strategy seems to be to first derail the train. Then, taking the merchandise, as long as the items don’t amount to more than $950, which is a non-jailable, minor offense in the Shithole of Los Angeles. In the dark of night, with no wireless cameras around, your crew can take what they like, with lookouts to warn on the police coming, if ever.

    Besides, under the current civil/social tenor, if YOU were on the LAPD, and YOU were charged with the task of chasing down aggressive darkies in a shadowy train yard at 2 in the morning, how hard would YOU try to apprehend a suspect that you’ll soon be releasing?


    Under the current circumstances, as created by the citizens of the Shithole of Los Angeles, the Union Pacific Railroad has threatened to stop trains from traveling to the Shithole of Los Angeles, which they should.

    Note: If you live in the Los Angeles area, you’d be wise to stock up right now on a couple of months worth of paper towels, toilet paper, canned goods you like, and bottled water, to allow you to avoid crazy, aggressive crowds later.

    What your nation looks like is a function of your demographics.
     
    Assuming a constant governing principle, two countries will draw from the same relative sections of the population, so the only variable is the average quality of the population.

    Then you look at the Moscow Metro and realize governing principle matters a great deal. Average Russian IQ is lower than America's. However, Moscow concentrates high IQ, whereas DC is something like 50% Bantu. Personnel is policy but culture decides which fractions gets chosen as personnel.

    Moscow concentrates high IQ,

    This was especially true in the Soviet period. Availability of goods was always spotty in the USSR but to the extent that stuff was available Moscow usually got 1st dibs. So residence in the capital was highly sought after, even more than the concentration of ministries, universities, etc. would have otherwise caused.

    I don't think it will be spectacular either, but there's a lot of ruin in a nation. It's probably going to be South Africa bad or Brazil bad, not Zimbabwe bad or Venezuela bad.

    The sad part of this is that the elites in these countries, even the middle class, still live pretty well (although they are certainly inconvenienced). When the level of shittiness increases, it's the poor (who are the ostensible reason they whole country is being turned to shit in the first place) who pay the highest price. We see this even now in the US where George Floyd has gotten a lot of people killed but mainly it's been black people.

    A lot (of) criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.
     
    The solution to violent crime is simple: a law prohibiting the possession of firearms by the very small demographic which exhibits a wildly disproportionate tendency toward violent crime, and then stop-and-frisk whenever and wherever they may be.

    If another demographic steps up to fill the gap, they get the same treatment. So it's fair as fair can be. Also, it's already been proven effective, in NYC from 1995 to 2015.

    “Store policy” is to treat every customer like a potential thief and therefore to inconvenience every customer equally, even when the manager admits that they have a pretty good profile of who is more likely to shoplift and in fact admittedly have a collection of regulars whom they know well who do most of the shoplifting.

    He did not appreciate me saying that but he also did not disagree that the policy wasn’t particularly logical nor fair nor respectful to the vast majority of their customers who in fact are not thieves but are presumed to be out of some misplaced sense of equity.

He and I lived through the whole class action lawsuit thing, all the way to chapter 11 bankruptcy, the sale of his division to investors from Taiwan, and the eventual purchase of his company by Warren Buffett in the guise of Berkshire Hathaway.

    My nice inheritance would have been a magnitude bigger if not for the asbestos thing. Dad was heavily invested via stock options.

    He told me that every one of the men who came down with cancer was a smoker. No non-smokers ever got sick from the asbestos fibers in the factories. Make of that what you will.

    Dad chain smoked and drank Scotch until he died at 85, when his heart stopped as he was getting out of his Lincoln in the driveway, coming home from the store, where he had just bought cigarettes. He never got cancer through all those years running factories manufacturing asbestos products.

    My father pretty much skied, played golf, dated (always blondes) and enjoyed himself. As Jack D. explains, what good are a few more years of life if you’re too old to enjoy them? Dad literally dropped dead, no suffering, no lengthy convalescence, after 85 years of doing what he wanted to do.
     
    In my advancing years the definition of what I consider truly old has shifted a bit, a healthy 90 seems reasonably possible. After that, a quick and sudden passing would likely be the best end. This assumes that all affairs are in order and all amends are made. Aside from the sudden shock of your passing, it is probably the best exit for all concerned.

    Having said that, I’ve found that enduring a long goodbye is painful, but not devoid of value. I still treasure some of the moments I had with my father in his final years, despite the pain we endured.

    As a quick note, the same is not true for our pets. I have always hoped that when the end does come, it’s sudden and I find my beloved pet in an inanimate state. Long goodbyes serve no useful purpose with pets.

    Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I think living through aging and then dying are two of the things that our world has not done enough about. Why don't we apply our massive knowledge, resources and collective cultural and historical understanding to making this last part of life better for more people?

    What we have so far seems like a grab bag of half-effective solutions to me. Every one of us, and everyone after us, will go through that stage of life -- with all those younger loved ones around us. There has got to be a better choice of ways for all people to do this. My father was lucky, as I was as his son. Many people are not so lucky.

    (“Great Wave” immigration to the US generally spurned Dixie, as did postwar and, until the last few decades, post-1965.)
     
    1st of all, this is not true even wrt the Great Wave. New Orleans, as a port city, had all sorts of immigration, big Italian community, etc. So did industrial towns such as Birmingham. Florida (Tampa for example) had Cuban immigration since forever, not just after Castro. Post war (post air conditioning) the population of the South grew tremendously they must have been coming from somewhere. Mostly from internal migration but also they got their share of immigrants.

    a spectacular aversion to “discrimination” even when said discrimination makes perfect sense and is much more efficient.
     
    Nowhere is this more spectacular than at airports. Most hijackers fit a profile. Never in history has an 80 year old white lady hijacked an airplane. But in order to prove how not racist they are, they spend the exact same amount of time searching 80 year old white ladies as they do searching young Muslim men. I would say that maybe 90% of what the TSA does is completely wasted effort in order to show how not-racist they are.

    As for Home Depot, it's a sad reality that they have to lock up expensive things like power tools or they will walk out of the store. You really shouldn't take this personally. Yes it is inconvenient to honest people but it would be even more inconvenient to you if they had to close the store due to excess theft making the store unprofitable.

    Home Depot has tried other things - keeping valuable items locked up. Carts that lock up if you try to run out of the store with them. Tools that have to be activated at the register before they work. Cameras everywhere.

    However, yes, closing the store is a last resort. A lot of the drug chains and convenience stores (CVS, Wawa) have been closing stores in high crime areas.

    On the Union Pacific thing, there have been further news stories. Apparently UP railroad cops have arrested thousands of thieves but the LA DA just lets them go immediately and the same people are back at it the next day. If there are zero consequences, why wouldn't they be? What did they think was going to happen if you decriminalized crime?

    A lot (of) criminals are stupid and impulsive; precisely the sort of person not well-deterred by a future punishment.
     
    The solution to violent crime is simple: a law prohibiting the possession of firearms by the very small demographic which exhibits a wildly disproportionate tendency toward violent crime, and then stop-and-frisk whenever and wherever they may be.

    If another demographic steps up to fill the gap, they get the same treatment. So it's fair as fair can be. Also, it's already been proven effective, in NYC from 1995 to 2015.

    First of all, membership in political party, even a party you don’t like, is not supposed to be a crime in and of itself.

    2nd, the FBI is tasked with investigating ALL Federal crimes, not just those involving people that the ruling party doesn’t like. During the Hoover era, especially, the FBI was strangely uninterested in organized crime, going so far as to say that the Mafia didn’t really exist. Some people believe that was because the Mafia had incriminating information concerning Hoover’s sexual preferences. Nowadays, being the 1st gay head of the FBI would entitle you to a Congressional Medal, but in those days not so much.
