From the Associated Press:

The Latest: Pelosi Ties Rioters’ Actions to ‘Whiteness’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing the Trump supporters who rioted in the Capitol this week of choosing what she calls “their whiteness” over democracy.

By Associated Press, Wire Service Content Jan. 9, 2021, at 6:50 p.m.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is accusing the Trump supporters who rioted in the Capitol this week of choosing “their whiteness over democracy.”

The California Democrat used an online video meeting with her hometown San Francisco constituents to criticize the overwhelmingly white mob that attacked Congress on Wednesday as it met to formally finalize Joe Biden’s presidential victory.

“It has been an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country led by this president, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy,” Pelosi said.

The Democrats having a lot of elderly leaders like Pelosi and Biden means they aren’t thinking terribly far ahead about the long term impact of their racist hate speech. They will already be dead and gone when their chickens come home to roost. As I’ve said before, unless you are talking about laundry bleach, interior decorating, or polar exploration, you only use the word “whiteness” in the 2020s to express racial animus.

    The NY Post had reported that her laptop had been stolen in the melee. Judging by her arch-hyperbole since, one might give that report some credence. The woman is obviously hypertriggered about something, what with all this impeachment and Amendment 25 and so forth from her. May she and her ilk live in interesting times these next ten days.

  4. Well it didn’t take long for that “national unity” line from the election to get dropped. Biden’s not even sworn in yet and they’re going with racial demagoguery full blast.

    But, who’s surprised? Racial demagoguery IS democracy. Rioting and mau-mauing is democracy. National unity is fascism. Pelosi’s objection is meaningless.

    It’s a lot of work and aggravation for an 80-yr old, she doesn’t seem like a true believer in anything, and she’s surely got enough money by now.

    Is she trying to make sure her great-grandchildren are set up for a nice life? Does she just enjoy politics for its own sake?

    You have to understand, they have made their lives so sweet, so easy with every single convenience, drivers, cars, assistants personal and professional, that they have not only no need to retire, but every incentive to NEVER retire. If they retired, they’d have to replace the cadre’ of people and luxuries back home if they left Capitol Hill and these are people with HEAVY Congressional pensions. Throw in the medical care they recieve, doctors instantly at hand wherever they are, the security and whatnot, why would you leave that life? The founder never expected all this I tell ya.

    Oh no, these folks rarely retire voluntarily, this is why the average age in both Houses IIRC, is in the upper 70s. Just look at them. Why retire?

  10. What people like Pelosi really despise is not so much Whiteness as Nordicness, they hate the Germanic values and ideals of fair play, liberty, rebelliousness when confronted with hostility, country living, proper and fair debate along with honest forms of work, much of this has generally been absent from the rest of the world and even today the most idealised societies tend to be those in Northern Europe, the Democrats hate that and would rather turn America into a cesspit that is run by a small upper class minority with everyone just living an increasingly poor and mediocre existence.

    I agree with Steve.

    Obviously not everyone there was “white”. We don’t even have to whereswaldo them to know that not everybody there was white because this wasn’t a white nationalist movement so why would there be?

    If it needs to be “seen”, I have watched around 15 minutes of coverage in total and I saw at least one black male and two arab looking males. I also happen to know personally a chinese woman who was there and a (white?) jewish couple who were there.

    I don’t mention this to correct the historical record because if the videos don’t do it then neither can I.

    I mention this because I feel for the non-christian-white-conservative people who are on the populist freedom supporting side.

    A few people here may believe in pizzagate and whatever but most are simply supporters of a vague sort of trumpism (not even necessarily of trump himself) against the elite.

    And for us to point out that our enemies define us as white male christian conservatives leaves behind all of the non-white jewish/athiest liberal/libertarian/unaffiliated people who would also like to be hated by the pelosis of the world.

    And they are.

    Stephen Miller was dragged over the coals for fixing his tie in a manner that the insane read as a white power symbol. And no one is more quickly the victim of the most extremely racist anti-black sterotype (as stupid and hyper-sexual) than a black republican.

    And let’s not even get into George Zimmerman…

    The powers that be are trying to shout us down as “white” and if we all were then I would wear that proudly and not rush forward to prop up the occasional puerto rican anti-elitist.

    But those 10% of POCs/Athiests/Jews etc who are on our side deserve – not to be held aloft or pushed to the front for tokenism – but also not to be erased as though our enemies are simply anti-white. “Whiteness” and “Racist” are accusations they use, and they see no problem using those terms against Chinese populists either.

  12. I was teaching English today to a grad student, focusing on the pattern “by (do)ing”, and he made the example question sentence:

    ” Why does the Twitter company think to protect democracy by banning the President’s account? ”

    I was a little shocked, but really that is like the child saying the emperor has no clothes, isn’t it?

    It is a useful thing to keep in mind that a Japanese grad student asked me this when you hear Pelosi say something like “It has been an epiphany for the world to see… “. The left is extremely parochial, and when they talk about the world, they really mean European elites who are on board with their program.

    It wasn’t reported in the US news, but there is a group of ardent Trumpists in Japan. I gather they support him based on his opposition to China. They are scared of Biden…

    Remember that line from Lord of War?

    https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BecauseImGoodAtIt

    Someone has a less-than-morally sound job—a drug dealer, an arms dealer, an assassin, or a lobbyist. They usually get into the job to make ends meet, especially if the job is illegal, but when they become financially sound or even get a legal job, they refuse to stop. When asked why, they give a simple answer: “because I’m good at it”. The fulfillment of being competent has surpassed the fulfillment of being a “good person”. That, or they’re willing (if in a legal job, like lobbyists) to let their job damage their personal lives and public facade for the simple reason of competence.

    Alternatively, a forever-politician’s brain is burnt in like the scanlines on old CRT tubes in teller machines.

  15. The HR ladies have seized the reigns of government. Biden is surrounded by them. Dr. Jill, Pelosi, Kwanzaa, the angry, fuming Squad. The hen house will be a flurry of dust and feathers whenever Hillary or Michelle drops by for some girl talk. Not even a younger man of sound mind could bear the strain of it. Biden will go along with their woke pronouncements in hopes of shutting them up but will hilariously bungle it at the teleprompter.

    It will be entertaining and we should encourage the engines of wokeness to devour the leftist institutions that created them. The social media giants now controlling public discourse employ almost zero black American descendants of slaves. Time to shine a light on this and not allow them to squirm away with BLM payola. Unleash the Bryn Mawr goons on them and either force their corporate relocation to majority black midwestern locales or investment in African American housing and jobs in Silicon Valley.

    Meanwhile, his cabinet does not include a single full-blooded Asian. Only Kamala Harris, who is only half Indian.

    Ya’ll do realize the anti-white hatred that kids endure from an early age permanently scars them, right? Especially since they aren’t allowed to fight back. The implication being they aren’t worthy. So they must endure the misery, unprotected, knowing that no authority figure will come to their aid. The authorities only intervene if the child defends himself (then he’s in trouble).

    And they have they double humiliation of knowing their parents never stand up for them on racial or PC issues. They see their father and mother kneel before the same cult. This is how a child learns his future is bleak and that he is not valued.

    That’s Mao level power right there: having parents and children put the cult before family.

  36. Nancy Pelosi has always struck me in a peculiar way as an idiot savant.

    To any reasonable person, she clearly is incapable of rational coherent thought on a variety of important policy topics and issues. She gets up to the podium and says stuff that is beyond bizarre.

    In addition, she has a level of cognitive dissonance that is truly astonishing in its breadth and depth, and her brain is obviously devoid of any neurons that could conceptualize and process irony.

    That said, she possesses what HAS to be a purely instinctive understanding of how to get and keep power in the realm where she operates.

All of the misery they inflicted in 2020, from impeachment to lockdowns to corporate bailouts to sanctioned black riots and antifa terrorism, if anybody deserved to have their work stormed and forced to flee it’s Congress.

    For instance, when Pasquale “Benny Eggs” Albanese questioned Cheech about the wisdom of dedicating monuments of Robert E Lee and Stonewall Jackson, he reportedly responded, ” Yeah – like I’m gonna take a knee because some nigguhs decide to squawk….ma va’fanculo!“, slapping the crook of his bent elbow for emphasis.

    Democracy is just code for the elite veto. When actual votes deliver the ‘wrong’ result, then ‘democracy’ is imperiled.

    It’s code for the managerial third way or neoliberal or Washington consensus or whatever you want to call the depoliticisation of vast amounts of essential public policy. No explicitly but simply through omission of choice. Trump violated this, violated ‘There Is No Alternative’ by saying, yes, why not a different policy on trade and immigration.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise that the native working class without an ‘immigrant’ identity are the strongest opponents and thus ‘whiteness’ becomes the problem. But that falls to condemn non-whites and particularly recent immigrants who have aligned themselves with this regime no differently than Coptic Christians aligning themselves with the military dictatorship in Egypt.

    The immigrant, just like the robber baron wants to break apart society so they can exploit it. The only difference is how well each is compensated.

  47. When leftists protest, even in protests that involve violence, the result is that their issues are validated and we are told that their concerns must be addressed.

    When anti-leftists protest, and their protest involves violence, their issues are invalidated and they are threatened with a lot more of the mistreatment they were protesting in the first place.

    On January 6, anti-leftists protested a highly irregular election that allowed a tremendous potential for fraud (proven or not). The response is not, “Next time we will take measures to ensure that everyone has faith in the integrity of our electoral system.” Quite the contrary. The leftists will ensure that the next election is even more rigged. Communications are already being denied to the opposition.

    Only whites were assigned collective guilt. After any bad behavior by a white, all whites must feel shame and surrender some right they previously enjoyed. After Dylann Roof’s massacre of black churchgoers: “No more Confederate flags for you, not even on the graves of your ancestors. And soon we’ll be tearing down your monuments.”

    After a black BLM supporter massacred police in Dallas, Hillary Clinton said white people must understand legitimate black anger. Why not, instead, “No more hateful rap songs for you and no more black grievance programs at college”? Wouldn’t that be an equivalent response?

    One redeeming feature of what Steve terms “Elderly Tourette’s” is that someone like Pelosi occasionally says out loud what she really thinks.

    Back when “W” was president, I saw a clip of Pelosi and some Democrats discussing Social Security reform, in which Pelosi said, “It’s more useful to us to keep it as an issue rather than solve it.”

    I found that a great insight into how politicians’ minds work. I put it in the same file as Bob Dole complaining about Bill Clinton’s triangulation by saying, “He’s stealing our issues!” (Issues being things you run on, not problems to be actually solved.)

    Democracy is just code for the elite veto. When actual votes deliver the ‘wrong’ result, then ‘democracy’ is imperiled.

    It’s code for the managerial third way or neoliberal or Washington consensus or whatever you want to call the depoliticisation of vast amounts of essential public policy. No explicitly but simply through omission of choice.

    It’s “democracy” without a demos. In fact, set against the demos and against even the very concept of the demos. “Democracy” has become a Newspeak word meaning the exact opposite of its past meaning.

    Nancy Pelosi should have stepped down as the leader of her party when the Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives in 2010. Until then there had been an unofficial rule by both parties that the speaker would move aside, like a vote of no confidence, and let junior members of her party who were not implicated in the loss take power. Their problem was that she would have either had to hand the position off to James Clyburn, an old dumb black hack who would have been very bad optics in normal times but not to mention with a black President serving, or they would have had to break with seniority and hand it to a younger Congressperson. The problem with both options, especially the second is that it would not have gone over well with the donors.

    Demographically, the Democrats will tip over much sooner than the Republicans. Pelosi has already said she will step down at the end of this upcoming term. Nothing would cause more more havoc to the Democrats than handing over the leadership to Muslims, Pro Geo. Floyd blacks, and gays. Blue area suburban white ladies and Jews are cooked and sooner or later will look for a home for both themselves and their money.

    They figure the roughly 40 percent of the non-white electorate is energized by anti-white sentiment and bloc-votes at an 80-90% clip.

    The 60% – and shrinking – white share of the electorate has a pretty large chunk (30-37%?) which is similarly motivated by even more vicious anti-white sentiment (See Anderson Cooper’s Olive Garden rant).

    The numbers don’t work out quite this well for Democrats, of course, but this is the calculus.

    The final consideration is that because of their media control very little negative stigma associated with such comments ever reaches the “normies” who don’t pay attention to politics or much else outside of Instagram. No Democrat is ever “controversial” or “divisive” or “far left” in the MSM.

  116. The Fakenews Industrial Complex is in overdrive pushing the “insurrection” narrative. For a master course in fake news craft, check out the following MSM report designed to give the (presumably false) impression that an officer was killed by protesters.

    A U.S. Capitol Police officer has died after engaging with rioters in Wednesday’s violent insurrection of a Trump supporting mob.

    “Brian D. Sicknick passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty,” the U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement late Thursday. “He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.” https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/08/police-officer-dies-capitol-riot-456213

    Note that the actual cause of death is deliberately hidden. The only actual facts claimed are that: (a) the officer “engaged with” protesters (i.e., he was near them and may have spoken to some); (b) he collapsed and died some time later after work (it could have been the next day); and (c) his death was supposedly due to “injuries sustained while on duty” (which could be totally unrelated to the protest or his “engagement” with protesters).

    In short, he may have died from a head injury when he slipped and fell while still “on duty” at the station. Who knows.

    Of course, if the specific facts did support the narrative they would have been provided in gory detail. So it’s a very safe bet that they don’t. In the meantime, the officer’s death will be used to justify the false narrative that the protesters were the perpetrators, rather than the victims, of the violence.

    P.S., Another three protesters died during the events of January 6. But unlike the cop, their deaths are implied to be totally unrelated to police violence — just unspecified “medical emergencies.” Note, however, that this verbiage is vague enough to include a “medical emergency” induced by a billy club to the head.

    Definitely not a think to do. But not unheard of.

    Let’s rewind and take a look at when Nazis stormed the Bastille. It was rough:

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

    At this point, the Bastille was nearly empty, housing only seven prisoners: four forgers; James F.X. Whyte, a “lunatic” imprisoned at the request of his family; Auguste-Claude Tavernier, who had tried to assassinate Louis XV thirty years before; and one “deviant” aristocrat, the Comte de Solages, imprisoned by his father using a lettre de cachet (while the Marquis de Sade had been transferred out ten days earlier).

    The crowd gathered outside the fortress around mid-morning, calling for the pulling back of the seemingly threatening cannon from the embrasures of the towers and walls and the release of the arms and gunpowder stored inside. Two representatives from the Hotel de Ville (municipal authorities from the Town Hall) were invited into the fortress and negotiations began, while another was admitted around noon with definite demands. The negotiations dragged on while the crowd grew and became impatient. Around 1:30 pm, the crowd surged into the undefended outer courtyard. A small party climbed onto the roof of a building next to the gate to the inner courtyard of the fortress and broke the chains on the drawbridge, crushing one vainqueur as it fell. Soldiers of the garrison called to the people to withdraw, but amid the noise and confusion these shouts were misinterpreted as encouragement to enter. Gunfire began, apparently spontaneously, turning the crowd into a mob. The crowd seems to have felt that they had been intentionally drawn into a trap and the fighting became more violent and intense, while attempts by deputies to organise a cease-fire were ignored by the attackers.

    The firing continued, and after 3:00 pm, the attackers were reinforced by mutinous gardes françaises, along with two cannons. A substantial force of Royal Army troops encamped on the Champ de Mars did not intervene. With the possibility of mutual carnage suddenly apparent, Governor de Launay ordered the garrison to cease firing at 5:00 pm. A letter written by de Launay offering surrender but threatening to explode the powder stocks held if the garrison were not permitted to evacuate the fortress unharmed, was handed out to the besiegers through a gap in the inner gate. His demands were not met, but Launay nonetheless capitulated, as he realised that with limited food stocks and no water supply his troops could not hold out much longer. He accordingly opened the gates, and the vainqueurs swept in to take over the fortress at 5:30 pm.

    Ninety-eight attackers and one defender had died in the actual fighting, a disparity accounted for by the protection provided to the garrison by the fortress walls. Launay was seized and dragged towards the Hôtel de Ville in a storm of abuse. Outside the Hôtel, a discussion as to his fate began. The badly beaten Launay shouted “Enough! Let me die!” and kicked a pastry cook named Dulait in the groin. Launay was then stabbed repeatedly and died. An English traveller, Doctor Edward Rigby, reported what he saw, “[We] perceived two bloody heads raised on pikes, which were said to be the heads of the Marquis de Launay, Governor of the Bastille, and of Monsieur Flesselles, Prévôt des Marchands. It was a chilling and a horrid sight! … Shocked and disgusted at this scene, [we] retired immediately from the streets.”

    There’s a huge market opportunity–in terms of what parents and kids want–for basically a “white university” that ignores minoritarian pieties and teaches a 1960 curriculum, but focused on practical disciplines. “Western Civilization U”.

    The big barrier is simply that *all* the universities and professoriates have been subverted by minoritarianism. So even in some more or less bleached Christian college … you have the same “diversity is who we are” crap and a commitment to dragging in some obstreperous scholarship blacks to show commitment to the cause.

    The other barrier is how elite institutions might react to such a degree.

    I think the real work around is certification of shills enabling on-line. Bypass and defund these looney bins–and save families $$$. Certification exams for establishing credentials/hiring should be a key piece of any nationalist/republican agenda.

    Sicknick’s family said in a statement, “Many details regarding Wednesday’s events and the direct causes of Brian’s injuries remain unknown and our family asks the public and the press to respect our wishes in not making Brian’s passing a political issue.”

    The statement made clear the family wants the focus placed on Sicknick, whose lifelong dream was to become a police officer.

    “Note that the actual cause of death is deliberately hidden.

In short, he may have died from a head injury when he slipped and fell while still “on duty” at the station. Who knows.”

    The averages can be calculated relatively easily, but those averages may not tell you that much if the figures are merely an overall average for a population consisting of various ethnicities who vary wildly from each other. Sometimes the distribution of intelligence can be as, or more, important than the simple average. For example, if the population contains a very large number of low intelligence, dysfunctional people, then that society might not work as well even if the average IQ is OK because it also contains lots of normal or high intelligence people.
    I believe it was John Derbyshire who made the argument that Black areas like Detroit are not disaster areas because all the people living in them are idiots and criminals. 85% might be law-abiding, fairly functional individuals, but the 15% who are room temperature IQ functionally retarded and/or violent sociopaths make it impossible for the other 85% to keep their society working.
    In the other direction a very small number of very high intelligence people may not be enough to pull up the average very much, but their contributions to that society may be enough to keep it working better than it otherwise might.
    I suppose some sharp scholars could tackle the problem of looking at the distributions and trying to develop some grand field theory of how these distributions affect the success of societies.

    That is an interesting, and valid, historical prognostication. The question remains, would the Soviets have advanced as far as you assume without the materiel support from the West, plus the military advance from the west itself?

    Russia never — NEVER EVER — mentions the support of all kinds it received from, mostly, the United States. It is much more than you are probably aware. Without our side interfering, it would have been even more of a slug-fest between Hitler and Stalin. As it was, our side tied Adolph’s hands behind his back and fed the Russian communists.

    From 1965 to 1987, the seat was held by Phillip and then Sala Burton. Sala Burton was very enmeshed in her husband’s work and succeeded him when he abruptly died. Pelosi was a protegee of Sala, who sponsored her for the position of Democratic state chairman; expiring from cancer, Sala endorses Pelosi for her seat. What’s odd is that the politics of the caucus are such that she ends up in charge of it and no one moves to take it away from her even when the Democrats lose 60-odd seats in 2010.

    There’s still over 200 million whites in America. Impossible to actually genocide American whites Hutu/Tutsi-style. You could argue they’re trying the mass immigration route but aren’t most of them going to the coastal cities? What are the white birth rates in the middle of the country?

    America is going to be less % white in the future but it’s also going to have way more people. You can’t genocide people if there’s still hundreds of millions of them in the territory they’re supposedly being genocided in. I would call it ‘white crowding’ rather than genocide. They no longer will be the majority in the country they built but they’re still going to be there. Even in Latin American countries where whites are a small minority, they are at the top of the society and only marry each other. That will probably be the long-term future of the US.

    Europe is another matter, since the Muslims very much want a Muslim society. Latinos in the US aren’t bombing and stabbing people as they engage in a guerrilla Jihad.

    Blacks are violent but they’re not a demographic threat. I suppose Asians, slit and dot, are the wild card. There’s certainly enough of them where the current ones came from to totally take over the country, and they do not have much empathy for whites. They will use them if it’s convenient to them, but that’s about it.

    The only way a Hutu-style white genocide in America happens is if Jews and Asians (slit and dot) ally to block whites out of the upper/upper middle class with quotas, crackdowns, surveillance, blatant legal discrimination, etc. and then there’s a huge wave of African migration over decades. Then once that number reaches critical mass, they unleash them onto the whites with a century of pent up racial resentment. Hopefully this is just me being overdramatic on the internet and no one actually ever plans something like that.

    I’ve been wondering about that for a few years. I think that it’s taken whites a while to figure that the country’s various institutions – including universities – are no longer “their” institutions. Whites can no longer expect the country’s institutions to do anything for them.

    If whites want a university that teaches Western Civilization and doesn’t hate whites, whites will need to build it themselves and then police that university to keep it that way, similar to what various religions have done in the past.

    Of course, in the past, the main difficulty in creating a university devoted to a particular religious or ethnic group was getting funding and organization to build and maintain the university. Today, for whites, we face that hurdle and the endless attacks by the media and, likely, the government itself.

    But building our own institutions is the only way forward.

    P.S., Another three protesters died during the events of January 6. But unlike the cop, their deaths are implied to be totally unrelated to police violence — just unspecified “medical emergencies.” Note, however, that this verbiage is vague enough to include a “medical emergency” induced by a billy club to the head.

    Apparently one died of a stroke (age 55), one of a heart attack (age 50), and in re one (age 34) it’s not clear. She fell over, someone fell on top of her, and someone else stepped on her in the crowd rush. She seems to have suffered some sort of cardiac event before or after, as they were doing CPR on her before she was taken to the hospital.

    What bits and fragments being published about Ofc. Sicknick is that in the evening after it was over, he texted his family and told them he’d been pepper sprayed twice. He mentioned no blow to the head or any other part of him. At some point afterward, he collapsed in the ‘division office’ and was transported to the hospital. There, they discovered he had a blood clot in his brain. He died the following evening, before his family from New Jersey arrived. It seems like he might have been hit on the head in just the wrong way. Recall Natasha Richardson (though she had a hematoma, not a clot). Someone I correspond with suggests he may (like an uncle of hers) have had an enhanced disposition to form clots (which can be hereditary).

    I can’t make much sense of the video of the killing of Ashli Babbitt and can hardly see her in it. It looked like the cop had his gun drawn and fired at random into a scrum without a word of warning. No one was coming after him and there was a locked door separating him from the scrum. I imagine the U.S. Attorney will let it slide. In other circumstances, I would think there would be an indictment.

    I’m a real-life arms dealer, and that quote just isn’t true.

    You don’t get into the job out of desperation. You don’t stay in it “just because you’re good at it.”

    You get into it because the prospect of a regular, boring job fills you with existential dread. Because you wouldn’t flip burgers for a living, even if you were getting paid $1000/hour for those burgers. Because you feel nothing but contempt at the sight of bankers, lawyers, and doctors — for, however high their IQs and salaries might be, and however they may think of themselves as an “elite” managerial class, they are an inferior class of servant. They’re too far removed from the things that have always made men men: Steel, fire, and blood.

    So you start off in the military. Invariably, in some sort of combat arms role. Then you get tired of it; you crave more freedom; you desire better compensation; you’d like to be captain of your own ship. So you leverage your contacts, start talking to folks in the UAE, Switzerland, Egypt, etc. Buy this from here, transport it to there, and maybe train up some guys while you’re at it. (And do the paperwork to keep things legal.) Next thing you know, it’s your whole life.

    But you do it because it’s the romantic thing to do, and the properly masculine thing to do. It’s the nearest thing to a life out of a young boy’s adventure novel. Everybody I work with has great stories to tell. I couldn’t imagine life as a fucking lawyer.

    Surely an assassin or a drug dealer would feel the same way I do. For them, the game has got even higher and more immediate stakes, and that’s very addictive, you know. I believe I can understand them.

    But a lobbyist… A lobbyist is just a lawyer in snake’s clothing. I can’t understand how they live with themselves.

    Except there was nothing irregular about the election except perhaps the increased number of mail-in ballots. The actual election results are perfectly normal.

    How about the essentially simultaneous freeze of ballot counting in Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georiga? Announcements made that ballot counting was being suspended for the evening so that poll-watchers went home and then ballot counting resuming (happened in Detroit and Atlanta). The Secretary of State of Pennsylvania – who’s job is to uphold Pennsylvania election law – ignoring Pennsylvania election law – i.e., breaking the law? Dead people voting (numerous cases in Michigan and Georgia). Voter rolls packed with thousands of dead people and people no longer resident, and Democrats fighting tooth-and-nail in court to keep them on the rolls? Signatures not required on mail-in ballots? Poll-watchers forced to stand back 20 or even 50 feet from where ballots were counted, and ejected from ballot-counters on made-up pretexts (all of that justified by COVID). All of this is a matter of record or has been sworn to by witnesses.

    There is ample evidence for fraud, perhaps even planned, systematic fraud on a large scale. Courts chose to ignore it because a.) the judges were Democrats who wanted Trump to lose BAMN, or b.) the judges just didn’t want to get involved because they knew it would invite a s**t-storm down on them.

    I don’t know that Biden’s campaign needed to cheat in order to win. I fully expected Biden to win anyway. But the thing about cheating is that even if you don’t need to do it, if you do, you’re still a cheater.

    Then there is the fact that virtually the entire mainstream media served as his PR department, even suppressing an actual news story with actual facts about his son’s corrupt business dealings which implicated senile old Joe himself.

    Biden’s administration is illegitimate from day one, as far as I’m concerned. They deemed Trump to be illegitimate and never let up. We need to return the favor. F**k them.

    One particularly delicious irony in history if you go back further for examples of the Soviets getting help from outside powers: in the 1920s, the Soviets relied off the Germans to build the Red Army. The Stavka was based off the Prussian General Staff model, German military technology was put at the disposal of the Soviets, and the German military set up dummy corporations to finance new factories. In exchange, the Germans got to train weapons and officers deep in Russia, far away from pesky League of Nations of observers and got access to almost unlimited raw material supplies.

    Imagine if Hitler died in 1940 and the two stayed pseudo-allies. I once read an alternate history tract about that scenario: they ended up collaborating to get an atomic bomb more quickly, because he physicists were put under the direction of Beria and Heydrich and ended up working 24/7 out of well-justified fear of them. Not sure how realistic that was, but fun to think about as a mental exercise.

    I think that you are fundamentally correct concerning the difficulty of founding a “white” university focused on western civilization and its accomplishments, along with a heavy science, mathematics, and technology committment, desirable as that may be, in the US. Another issue is that all access to federal education funds would be denied to such a propositional university, regardless of inherent, demonstrated merit.

    Unfortunately, many universities in other nations under the dark cloud of leftist thinking are no longer suitable as alternatives. Offhand, I would really only consider Russia or some few East Asian nations to be realistic sources for such educational opportunities.

    But many of those select universities may have far higher expectations of their students’ secondary education than our watered-down universities. White US students are being crippled by our politically-driven “educational” systems, which are in practice geared to preparing them for a life as 2nd class, guilt-riddled semi-citizens, rather than preparing them for a life of active, uncompromised citizenship through stimulating and challenging educational systems. In these select, foreign universities they would be hopelessly lost, as well as disadvantaged by learning in another language.

    Not a cheerful prospect unless those desiring to study abroad had undertaken to rigorously prepare themselves through the acquisition of linguistic/cultural fluency beforehand, and through an uncompromisingly excellent scholastic course of study that would find them at no disadvantage in relation to their fellow students. That’s a tall order, but possible with real dedication. Ironically, that used to be the situation facing foreign students matriculating at US universities (before the Great Gramscian March through our universities…), but now the shoe is on the other foot.

    But wouldn’t it be delicious if post-education, the best and brightest white US students expatriated, leaving the US struggling to find truly qualified candidates to fill critical positions because of the brain-dead white-hating Critical Race Theory bullshit? And why wouldn’t they expatriate if all that they had to look forward to in the US was a crappy life as a scorned minority – by design – keeping the system functioning as galley slaves for their inferiors.

    This is why separate nations is the only way forward. Keep all of our competent white folks, tradesmen or PhDs, in our own nation, our own political, legal, educational, medical, agricultural, and industrial system. Working for each others’ betterment as One People.

    Who is Karl Smith? Why should anyone care what he thinks? (Don’t tell me; I don’t care.)

    I’m basically at the apathy stage. There’s absolutely nothing constructive I can do to influence the situation in Washington, other than continue to express my opinions on sites that haven’t been shut down yet and hope for the best. I should be prepping like crazy, but I’m bogged down with multiple obligations and I don’t have the resources to bug out.

    Many of my right-leaning friends and relatives are convinced that the Internet will be shut down at any moment and that society will grind to a complete halt.

    An acquaintance of mine just back from DC told me today that all of the supermarkets will be closed for two months, at least. She’s predicting mass starvation.

    (Fortunately, I have fat to spare.)

    There are times to advance, there are times to retreat, and there are times to lie low. My gut instinct tells me that now is the time to lie low.

    I’m not going to throw the Capitol protesters under the bus – even if some of them were Antifa LARPers, they sent a strong message to the world. But the reality is that the guy standing in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square didn’t really accomplish anything, other than to commit suicide (or get himself thrown in prison). And neither did the Capitol protesters.

    My gut has a pretty good track record, but it doesn’t bat a thousand. As I said before the election, my gut told me that Trump would prevail, but I was fully prepared to accept the possibility that he might lose.

    Even now, I have not written Trump off completely. RED 1, RED 2, yadda yadda yadda. Am I delusional? Probably. But what is hope if not a delusion? What’s wrong with trying to be positive?

    Having grown up in a family of hysterical women for whom everything was a crisis, and having weathered some nasty genuine crises (legal, medical, financial) over the last several years, I’m quite concerned about the current situation, but I’m convinced that we’re going to make it.

    At the beginning of the Coronapocalypse, my gut told me that, medically speaking, COVID would not be a big deal for me – and it was right. I have not contracted the disease. None of my friends or immediate relatives have contracted the disease.

    (That being said, I suffered a nasty bout of the flu while traveling in late January. My symptoms began on my way home from the airport. I’m not convinced that it wasn’t the Wuhan bug.)

    The chaos surrounding the beginnings of the lockdowns in March 2020 (with severe shortages of such luxury items as toilet paper and hamburger meat) was very similar to the mass freakout that preceded the arrival of Hurricane Irma in September 2017. The entire state of Florida was essentially shut down, and large portions of the populace were whipped into a panicked frenzy. The media hype was unrelenting. For over a week before the storm, we were inundated with 24/7 saturation coverage screaming “We’re screwed! We’re screwed!”

    In the days before the storm, I knew people who were wandering around in a daze, muttering that Miami was about to be wiped off the face of the earth. Others were screaming, shrieking, howling at the moon, and bawling their eyes out. (Many of these people also shed copious tears over the arrival of COVID. So far, all of them have lived to cry another day.)

    I was going through multiple crises that summer, including a legal battle that temporarily left me flat-out broke. I didn’t have so much as a spare dime to prepare for the storm. (One evening, I coasted on fumes to a gas station owned by a friend who owed me a favor. He repaid me by filling up my tank.) But I wasn’t worried. I knew the hurricane wasn’t going to be a big deal for me. Don’t ask me how; I just knew.

    Irma ended up missing Miami, although it did a number on the Keys. The one major impact in my area was that many people lost electricity for up to two weeks. (Not me; my lights came on about 24 hours after they went off.)

    Right now, a Category 5 shitstorm is heading our way. The odds are against us and the outlook is grim. But I know that this is not the end. For some weird reason, I am convinced that somehow, some way, we’re going to survive the tornado of nastiness and the tsunami of toxic bullshit that will accompany the Biden/Harris coronation. Not everyone will be equally fortunate; a lot of good people are going to be hurt. But, in the end, we’re going to make it.

    Stay sharp, stay frosty, and stay safe. Be ready for anything and everything. Expect things to get worse – a lot worse – before they get better. But don’t let the bastards get you down.

    What do you suggest as an alternative for real people with real children who could go to a real college?

    Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Colleges like Hillsdale or Grove City aren’t perfect but are better than the typical college. National Review magazine put out a college guide by Charles Sykes a number of years back and those two were listed along with a number of other good choices in each state. You can get a used copy at Amazon or through an interlibrary loan if your local library doesn’t have one.

    You can send your kid to most colleges as long as they major in the right areas. The social sciences and humanities have totally succumbed to liberalism but majors in areas like business, the physical and biological sciences, and engineering and computer science have a minimum of ideological content. I switched from journalism into accounting after I saw how liberal my professors and fellow students were in the journalism department.

    Of course, if you major in one of the practical fields you won’t have a chance to read the classics like Aristotle, Shakespeare, Locke and so on but those classics are being increasingly dropped out of college curricula anyway. If you don’t go to one of the schools listed in the NR guide you can always turn autodidact and just read them on your own.

    In many disciplines, perhaps only a couple British universities have widespread credibility in the US. Similarly, perhaps in some disciplines such as STEM, some other European universities may have respect.

    But my concluding point may still have relevance; i.e., regardless of acceptance of those select institutions and the qualifications of their graduates in the US, they certainly do have acceptance in other advanced – or rising – nations, so US graduates need not return to the US to find employers who would welcome them. The rest of the world is not as parochial as the US, and with the onrushing, largely self-inflicted, social and economic retrograde movement of the US, “brain drain” may go into reverse, and qualified US whites educated in select non-US universities will be positioned to exploit this turnabout.

    I am no expert, and these ruminations are speculative. But I think it not unreasonable to believe that, contrary to past times when mass movements to the US of lower socioeconomic groups seeking land or industrial employment predominated, that in this instance the migrants may be instead higher socioeconomic white US citizens facing increased discrimination here who may use high quality educational opportunities abroad to become expatriates, not in huge numbers, yet whose loss will accelerate the decline of the US as a world power.

    I derive no pleasure from this national suicide. If only our republican Constitution had not been pervasively undermined by mindless minoritarian leftists and globalist plutocrats…but that’s water over the dam. Our national politics turns on tribalism now. Many whites not aligned with those groups don’t yet see this, and how they are being systematically set up for immiseration and oppression, but they’re about to find out, I fear, including the useful idiot white leftists, but for them I have zero sympathy, only contempt.

    Thank you for this conversation.

    “Ordinary people can become part of something monstrous if they allow themselves to be swept away. The deterrent against doing so must be firm and unwavering.”

    So, the next time we have a “Central Park Five”-type incident (and we will, have no fear), Mr. Smith will favor throwing the book not only at the yutes who actively commit the rapey behavior, but also at those who –“allow[ing] themselves to be swept away” — enable and facilitate such conduct as, for example, holding the victim down so she can’t move, much less escape?

    Good to know. With all the moms crying for the cameras that Kadeem was a good boy who “dindu nuffin,” but just fell in with “da wrong crew,” it will be bracing to see someone stand up for individual accountability and objective standards of behavior.

    Extra credit: how about the “robbery gone wrong” turned murder of Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors in New York’s Morningside Park in December 2019 by three yutes? And I do mean “yutes”: all three were either 13 or 14 at the time, and the killer (for which act he’s serving 18 months in juvenile detention) a mere 13. The other two, tried as adults, should serve real time, under Mr. Smith’s “firm and unwavering” standard, right?

    The whole point of this exercise is to eliminate American employers.

    As for Global Employers operating in America it could be a plus if you explain it the way they want you to. I’d strongly consider not being employed by them in the first place, but of course that isn’t practical depending on one’s line of work.

    What we should do is band together and take back (not back to the 50s but to the timeless shared principles which brought our ancestors here) the institutions we built. Then again we wouldn’t be here if our ancestors didn’t favor flight over fight so that may be too steep of a hill to climb.

    Of course the greatest influence was in the Tu-4 which was a rivet for rivet copy of the captured B-29s.

    This was an enormous effort and given that piston engine aircraft became obsolete almost immediately after they completed building their Tu-4 fleet it was mostly (though not entirely) a wasted effort. They did take many of the lessons that they had learned in the Tu-4 and apply them to later aircraft and particularly at Tupolev. But the features that you cite they could have just copied from photos without having to reverse engineer the whole thing.

    The Russians actually had a lot of native aircraft design talent and could well have designed their own bomber. But the Russian leadership (Russians in general) always felt that foreign stuff (particularly American stuff in those days when we were the world leaders in technology) was better.

    OTOH, when it came to jet engines, the Germans really were ahead of the Russians. The big breakthru in the Tu-95, the enormous turboprop engines, were not really a Russian design – they were done by the Nazi Brandner and his gang, held prisoner in Russia until 1953. In order to make him feel at home, the Russians also dismantled the Junkers and BMW factories in E. Germany and brought them to Kuybyshev (present day Samara) too.

    Yes, that’s a given as per Buzz (above).

    But the features that you cite they could have just copied from photos without having to reverse engineer the whole thing.

    Quite likely but the aircraft cited were all designed and built after the war and after the Tu-4 which is why I suspect the influence is more direct.

    Another case of copying/adapting is the Mi-4. Clearly the Soviets were taken with the front-engine Sikorsky S55 and came up with the Mi-4 although it had capability more like the later S-58.

    I’m not going to throw the Capitol protesters under the bus – even if some of them were Antifa LARPers, they sent a strong message to the world.

    That’s my working premise of the events.

    Or, as Conan the Barbarian states in his prayer before battle.

    “Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad, Why we fought or why we died. No, all that matters is that two stood against many. That’s what’s important. Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request – Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then the Hell with you!”

    But the reality is that the guy standing in front of the tank in Tiananmen Square didn’t really accomplish anything, other than to commit suicide (or get himself thrown in prison). And neither did the Capitol protesters.

    It inspired this AWESOME public monument by some Chinese person in AMERICA.

    One man carries the Confederate battle flag, therefore all demonstrators can be assumed to support carrying that flag that prominent Democrats associate with white supremacy, therefore all demonstrators were white supremacists.

    https://aim4truth.org/2021/01/06/nancy-pelosi-the-mob-and-china/

    For all I have read and learned about our president, he knows how to even the score and deal with his enemies. Think of his maneuvers as the legalistic equivalent of concrete boots. Just consider, he expanded the fortune his father left him by wheeling and dealing in the environment of NYC real estate and construction, a place where both fools ands angels fear to tread. He used the law and force of personality to accomplish his goals.

    I think the chicoms and zionista bankers who wish to break up America want us to have a civil war. I think the pressures of declining oil production – real production, not the phony fracking numbers, a dollar weakened by national debt and the ascendency of China, and the natural consequences of a warming planet – of which new pandemics is one – all meant that we would be facing a weakened future sooner rather or later, and I think the Chicoms and zionista bankers wanted to control it sooner so they remain in control. I think it would have happened regardless of a constitutional crises, but I also think, and this is important, that Trump and the patriotic parts of our deep state (which is not monolithic by any means) are going to take control of it happening sooner and control who benefits, and who benefits will be the corporations that employ Americans and the deplorables who farm, manufacture, and run small businesses.

    Trump met with Putin a few years ago and managed a few quiet hours of private conversation. Did Putin teach him the kari-ashi? Or perhaps it was the deashi harai?

    After the war the writer wrote a book or a long essay where he argued that all those young Americans did not have to come over to Europe and die by the thousands. He maintained that the Communists and the Nazis would have eventually extinguished each other. I can’t remember the writer’s name.

    That would have led to the Soviets taking continental Europe in the name of liberation.

    The Germans would have been overran by the Soviets in any scenario. They needed to break the Soviets in 1941.

    Hitler gambled that the Soviet system would collapse under the stress of war. Seems like a bad bet in hindsight but most military experts at the time thought the Soviets would give up within a few months. The Soviets would have lost if they didn’t have a ruthless dictator that was willing to throw waves of men at the Nazis. There were Soviet infantry attacks where not every soldier had a gun and were told to pick one up after the soldier in front of them is shot.

    This is plausible, except that Nancy Pelosi is filthy stinkin’ rich, as are many senior congressional douchebags. And even if she weren’t rich today, she can easily become rich upon retiring: lobbying jobs, board seats, a “speaking tour”… Isn’t that the whole idea with modern democratic politicians – that, to skirt bribery laws, they do the quid now, and get the pro quo later?

    And then there’s the fact that, no matter how many flunkies are on hand, life as a professional politician, especially one as high profile as Pelosi, is probably pretty busy and difficult. Like I say, it’s still a lot of aggravation.
