Rather than black women purchasing their hair extensions from India, Assa Traore is teaching black women everywhere to purchase their hair extensions from the Mother Continent.

Traoré was born in January 1985 to a polygamous family, wherein her father had four wives.[9] She grew up with 17 siblings.[6] Her father, Mara-Siré Traoré, had emigrated from Mali at 17,[10] before marrying his respective wives, and dying of lung cancer in 1999,[11] due to his frequent exposure to asbestos.[12] The family lived in Beaumont-sur-Oise,[13] where Mara-Siré was a construction worker. Traoré once said that although French society is critical of polygamy, she had a very comfortable upbringing.[9]

I bet she did, courtesy of the French taxpayers.

Does the arrowhead pointing from Joe to Kamala tell us something about where we are headed?

How do a man and a woman form the singular Person of the Year? Time should have skipped Person of the Year and just gone for Pronoun of the Year: “They.”

    , @Almost Missouri
    @MEH 0910

    The most salient fact about the recent Presidential election was how irrelevant the Democrat candidates were to it. The entire thing was just one big referendum for or against Trump. Even Biden agrees. Since the eighteenth century, has a presidential challenger ever declined to campaign for the office he wanted?

    Time doggedly maintained throughout their naming of Hitler and Ayatollah Khomeini as "Man of the Year" that the title was based merely on newsworthiness, not any sort of moral merit. And Hitler and Khomeini undeniably drove news cycles. But since Trump is apparently more literally Hitler than Hitler and Khomeini combined, that standard had to go out the window.

    I guess Mediocrities of the Year would be too long for a magazine cover.

    Biden rode Obama's popularity, was anointed by the Dem leaders because he was least threatening, and was dragged across the finish line by collusion of the MSM and Big Tech.

    Kamala slept her way to the middle, and then got everything after that by checking two diversity boxes as a faux-black woman.

    Oh yeah, they also had the election rigged for them.

    ‘There cannot be a peaceful coexistence’: Rush Limbaugh says the US is ‘trending towards SECESSION’ as 18 states join Texas in launching SCOTUS legal action in support of Trump’s battle against the Union’s 2020 election

    The conservative radio host, 69, predicted that some states may soon break away from the rest of the US and declare independence in his show Wednesday
    ‘I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,’ he said
    Limbaugh said America is becoming increasingly polarized between conservatism and liberalism, and the two cannot have ‘a peaceful coexistence’
    ‘We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way,’ he warned
    The radio host is one of Trump’s biggest supporters and was controversially given the nation’s highest civilian honor by the president in February
    The only other time in American history that states have seceded was in the lead-up to the Civil War when 11 southern states cut ties with the Union
    Fears of a deep-rooted divide comes as 19 states have broken rank following the election result, taking legal action to throw out ballots in four other states
    Texas AG Ken Paxton filed a suit with the US Supreme Court against Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia to have millions of votes thrown out
    18 states have backed the suit and Trump asked to join it
    106 House Republicans – more than half the GOP’s majority – then endorsed the suit in a brief filed Thursday

    Aliens Exist? Israel's Ex-Space Boss Says "Yes, And Trump Knows About It"

    Haim Eshed, 87, in an interview to Israel's Yediot Aharonot newspaper, spoke extensively about the extraterrestrial life, and also elaborated about "an agreement" between the US government and a "Galactic Federation" of aliens.

    Aliens are real and US President Donald Trump knows about it, Israel's former space security chief has made an unprecedented claim in an interview, stressing they're keeping their existence a secret as "humanity is not ready for them".

    Haim Eshed, 87, in an interview to Israel's Yediot Aharonot newspaper, spoke extensively about the extraterrestrial life, and also elaborated about "an agreement" between the US government and a "Galactic Federation" of aliens. Mr Eshed has headed Israel's space security programme for nearly three decades, say reports.

    There is an agreement between the US government and the aliens as they wish to research and understand "the fabric of the universe", the Jerusalem Post, another daily, quoted him as saying, citing the original interview published in Hebrew. This cooperation apparently includes a secret underground base on Mars.

    Donald Trump stopped short of revealing their existence because the Galactic Federation insisted "humanity is not ready yet", Mr Eshed is believed to have told the daily. The aliens insisted humans need to "evolve and reach a stage where we will... understand what space and spaceships are".

    It was frustrating that even a limited search did not make it clear (-didn’t see an autopsy in any language – hope that someone else can do better here) whether AT had sickle cell disease or only sickle trait. A combination of extreme exertion (such as escaping from police custody multiple times in hot weather) and sickle cell disease would seem to be very, very dangerous. Even sickle cell trait can be deadly under those circumstances.

    It was claimed that a cause of the death of AT was hypertrophic cardiac disease. A relative said in rebuttal(presumably in the Devil’s lingua franca) that AT had an “athletic heart.”

    Hopefully, Discover still works... the communist cosmopolitans have been working day and night to deny Americans the right to anything they don't approve of; that's why Wal-Mart won't sell you 5.56 NATO and 7.62x39mm ammo. They already dropped handguns. Dick's doesn't have guns anymore. They were even going after Cabela's in NYS for selling .45ACP ammo to someone under 21y/o, even though it is a rifle round in some guns like a DeLisle carbine clone.

    It is even getting down to the gun shop level.


    I just talked with an independent gun shop and was quite alarmed by what I heard. He relayed to me that only one payment processor would work with him to accept credit cards. Make no mistake, gun sellers are running out of time and will continue to be demonized by the tolerant left. They will silence us on all platforms, including financial. It’s only a matter of time until one of the big CC companies starts to deny business to firearms retailers. It’s inevitable. Eventually, your gun shop may say that their payment processor (based in California) canceled their account. Cash only. I can tolerate that locally. I am happy to spend anonymously, but that has downstream consequences…

    That means we have to go back 30 years to ordering by mail with personal checks and money orders. In the age of E-Comerce… can you imagine the tragedy of all those shops and accessory businesses going out of business because their monetary velocity suddenly slowed to a crawl? The convenience of the internet and the ability to find what we need easily is part of the explosive growth of the firearm industry. Losing such an important component of 21st-century commerce will be yet another nail in the coffin.

    Our ability to spend freely will be cut off… yet there is another way.

    I urge all gun owners to begin to understand cryptocurrency.

     


    Unstoppable Money, Digital Scarcity

    Gun owners are sometimes technological curmudgeons. Aimpoints were a bad word and iron sights ruled the minds of shooters for years. Technology is yucky. Yet, it’s vital we understand it to combat what’s coming. To spend your money freely without permissions a key component of crypto. Who would be able to take advantage of this? That’s right. Joe Gun Shop.

    With cryptocurrency, there is no middle man. There is no central authority. There is only, in the simplest of terms, a network of nodes which log the exchange of currency from one address to another, and once they all come to an agreement that Joe was paid by Bob, it is recorded to the blockchain. No take-backs. No middle man. No government permission. No stopping the signal.
    bitcoin

    At the time of this writing (Nov 2020) one BTC is worth $15700. Does that surprise you?

    This is the currency we should be prepared to accept as gun owners. Liberty with your money is just as important as the first and second amendments. When every payment processor says no, we won’t service the gun industry… then we can simply say… we don’t need you and you are irrelevant.
    This is the way:

    Of course, it takes education to understand something so different. Older people don’t seem to understand the process and develop their own mythology around cryptocurrency. Let me give you a snippet rundown of the two big dogs:

    BTC

    The biggest and best of them, Bitcoin, has a huge following and is perfectly positioned to become digital gold. There are only 21 million and there won’t be any more created. It’s a feature. As an investment, it has outperformed every other asset since its inception. The base layer transacts slowly, but a second layer (known as lightning) allows us to transmit the bitcoin within seconds much like a credit card.

    ETH

    The next big dog is Etherum. It is programmable money. It allows the creation of smart contracts that give it unique properties such as being able to earn 3-10 percent interest on a dollar-pegged stable coin… with no banks needed. Oh, yea… you can also take out loans without a bank too. The coins interact with smart contracts and the possibilities are almost limitless.
    Security is Built-In

    Unstoppable money just happens to be the safest form of money. You have seen news of “exchanges” getting hacked. True, exchanges do get attacked, but the industry has grown with self-insurance, better security practices, etc. This is a new industry with new problems. These problems are being fixed rapidly. Keep your coins off the exchanges. Liberty and freedom come with responsibility. Sound familiar? The base level of security is your seed phrase. Comprised of 24 words, this phrase is your key to find your coins in the event that your phone or digital wallet is destroyed. Hackers cannot break the 24 words. The technology isn’t there to do so. Every computer on earth firing at once trying to solve that 24 word phrase would take more time than the existence of the universe to crack.

    A properly secured seed phrase (which is a backup of your digital wallet) is as secure as the safe, or location that guards it. If it is lost or hidden so well that no one can find it after you die… then there is no recovering it.

    The problems with bitcoin is volatility. Understandable someone doesn’t want their money fluctuating wildly, but when the alternative is no money coming in then gun shops and gun owners must find a way. Also… consider than over 90% of all wallets are in profit at this time. That means it’s been growing silently in the background as large institutions begin to take positions. There are worse places to store your money.
    Wrapping Up:

    There is no low the liberals will sink too, and applying pressure to credit card companies, as well as banking institutions, are inevitable. “We don’t serve yucky gun owners” will be the virtue signal as their ground team burns out poor inner-city communities and riots over such horrible things as a Lincoln statue. We need to be flexible. We need to remove ourselves from their economy and let the vine wither. We need options. We need unstoppable money, the right to speak freely, and the ability to bear arms. I am not saying you should learn about this stuff, but rather you NEED to learn about it. I urge gun owners and gun businesses to start learning rickety tick. Our choices are narrowing every year and time is a luxury we don’t have. We must make our own way.

    But like everything else, the whole thing has been dumbed down to the point that it’s basically worthless.

    Assa now leads an organization to manipulate public opinion and win accolades. She’s so successful at it she quit her well-paid day job and now earns a living by convincing people her brother is the French version of St George of Fentanyl.

    The admittance of this family into France resulted in a substantial loss for the French taxpayer. No wonder Time loves her hair so much.

    On 19 July 2016, Adama Traoré’s 24th birthday, Traoré was out with his older brother Bagui in the Paris suburb of Beaumont-sur-Oise. Police approached the pair, seeking Bagui who was accused of extortion with violence.[3] The officers requested to check their IDs, but Traoré did not have his and fled. He was caught by officers, but fled again and was caught a second time, then handcuffed. The arresting officer was attacked and knocked to the ground by an unknown third party who fled the scene, allowing Traoré to escape again to hide in a nearby house.[4][5] Three officers of the National Gendarmerie found him hiding under a sheet without the handcuffs and pinned him down to arrest him.[3][4]

    Following his arrest, Traoré stood up on his own but officers claim he seemed to be in some physical distress.[6] He was taken to a police vehicle and then to the nearby police station, a journey that took 3-4 minutes. On arrival at the station, the officers noticed Traoré had urinated on himself and was unconscious but they stated that he was still breathing.[6] The officers placed Traoré on the ground and called the emergency services.[7] When fire service paramedics arrived and saw Traoré was no longer breathing, they called an emergency medical team from the SAMU who tried to resuscitate him. After an hour, Traoré was declared dead at the scene.[3] After his death Traoré was found to have been in possession of €1,330 in cash and a bag of cannabis.[8]

    Traoré had previously been convicted of various offenses–including rebellion and violence against the police, extortion, drug related offenses, and stealing–and had been incarcerated twice. He had been released from prison in May 2016, two months before his death.[9]

    After around 200 attempts, which ceased in the 1960s, legislation did not pass in Congress. Nearly 60 years later, Harris joined Booker and Scott in picking up the mantle by co-authoring the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, which was later renamed the Emmett Till Antilynching Act.

    Stopping by as the Jussie Smollett Antilynching Act on the way?

    And in doing so, Harris continued the tradition of Black women working for the betterment of all humankind.

    These are just a few examples of how examining Harris’ specific experiences and relationships—different from those of the past and present occupants of high office—may yield a deeper understanding of the woman who just made history. But they are a reminder that the U.S. will not only have its first Vice President who is a Black and Indian-American woman, as important as those milestones are. Harris is standing on a firm foundation of service, courage, struggle, passion, intellectual rigor and hope. She is indeed ready to go to work.

    During her college career, she started to identify as Black.[5][6][8]

    While child abuse is certainly wrong, probably 99.9% of the content on Pornhub does not involve this and I also assume that they remove abusive content when it is brought to their attention. So attempting to destroy their whole business for this reason seems wrong to me. Every once in a while there must be items on ebay that are illegal to sell - things made out of ivory or medicines that are not approved in the US or whatever. Should we cut off ebay's credit card acceptance abilities because of this? This is the financial equivalent of the death penalty for jaywalking.

    Accusations of criminal activity (whether child abuse, rape, or anything else) are not proof of the alleged activity. Allegations are fleeting, whereas a jury verdict of guilt requires substantive probity.

    Then again, the corporate world and government are turning the regular constitutional order of due process on its head by assertions of guilty until proven innocent. E.g., C-19 lockdowns, FB and Twit censorship of posts challenging government.

    The most salient fact about the recent Presidential election was how irrelevant the Democrat candidates were to it. The entire thing was just one big referendum for or against Trump. Even Biden agrees. Since the eighteenth century, has a presidential challenger ever declined to campaign for the office he wanted?

    Time doggedly maintained throughout their naming of Hitler and Ayatollah Khomeini as “Man of the Year” that the title was based merely on newsworthiness, not any sort of moral merit. And Hitler and Khomeini undeniably drove news cycles. But since Trump is apparently more literally Hitler than Hitler and Khomeini combined, that standard had to go out the window.

    Osama bin Laden was robbed:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Person_of_the_Year#Controversial_choices


    Despite the magazine's frequent statements to the contrary, the designation is often regarded as an honor, and spoken of as an award or prize, simply based on many previous selections of admirable people.[9] However, Time magazine points out that controversial figures such as Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1939 and 1942), Nikita Khrushchev (1957) and Ayatollah Khomeini (1979) have also been granted the title for their impacts.[10]

    As a result of the public backlash it received from the United States for naming Khomeini as Man of the Year in 1979, Time has since shied away from using figures who are controversial in the United States for commercial reasons, fearing reductions in sales or advertising revenue.[11]

    Time's Person of the Year 2001, immediately following the September 11, 2001 attacks, was New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani.[12] The stated rules of selection, the individual or group of individuals who have had the biggest effect on the year's news, made Osama bin Laden the more likely choice that year. The issue that declared Giuliani the Person of the Year included an article that mentioned Time's earlier decision to select Ayatollah Khomeini and the 1999 rejection of Hitler as "Person of the Century". The article seemed to imply that Osama bin Laden was a stronger candidate than Giuliani, as Adolf Hitler was a stronger candidate than Albert Einstein. The selections were ultimately based on what the magazine describes as who they believed had a stronger influence on history and who represented either the year or the century the most. According to Time, Rudolph Giuliani was selected for symbolizing the American response to the September 11th attacks, and Albert Einstein selected for representing a century of scientific exploration and wonder.

    Another controversial choice was the 2006 selection of "You", representing most if not all people for advancing the information age by using the Internet (via e.g. blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and Wikipedia).[13]

Michele Obama, for whatever reason, was not available, which left them with Kamala Harris, a hack who came off piss-poor in the debates with the other candidates. Even though they probably knew how corrupt Biden is, nevertheless he represented the “Establishment” and would thus have been more acceptable to the rank-and-file . So they made Biden their standard-bearer but with the understanding that Harris would be his running mate.

    For months the Democrats and their MSM mouthpieces dodged and ignored the Hunter Biden story. Evidently the MSM got the green light (now that Joe is Trump’s apparent successor), so it’s only now that the word is out that Hunter is being investigated . This is not a coincidence.

    It says here that the Democrat party nominated Joe Biden precisely because they know that he not only won’t finish his first term but it’s even money that he won’t even finish out his first year.

The U-boat crew were subsequently executed by waiting agents of Die Spinne, Otto Skorzeny's organization; no doubt to leave Herr Hitler's escape trail as cold as possible.

It was a short connection and the incoming flight was a little late so I RAN thru the vast Atlanta airport and got to the other gate on time (Murphy's Law says that your connecting flight gate is always at the most distant part of the airport from your arrival gate). And I plopped into my aisle seat and the middle seat was empty and at the window seat there was a young woman who was very easy on the eyes. I thought to myself that this should be a very pleasant and comfortable flight or at least as good as sitting in a tube for five and a half hours gets. And then the plane sat and sat and finally they announced that they were waiting for someone to make a connection. After maybe 30 minutes of waiting, an extremely obese man (I mean the guy must have weighed 400 lbs.) gets on and he waddles up to my row - he is assigned the middle seat. I tell the cabin crew politely oh hell no and they have mercy on me and move me to the exit row so it all worked out but there was no way that this guy's ass was going to fit in that middle seat cushion. They really need to make folks like this buy two seats, which is only fair because they weigh as much as 2 people.

    Buzz, that is a true story. I was assigned middle seat at the bulkhead in front of the rear lavatory. I swear, with the armrests up, and they were, there was no seat cushion visible. The very irritated flight attendant snapped..."Hurry up and take your seat." I sat on flesh clothed in expandable fabric. I never put on my seat belt, because there was no way I was digging around for it. I flew back to Buffalo, leaning forward with my elbows on my knees and my head touching the back of the seat in front of me. The two tonners talked over me and passed snacks over me. Hell, they may have used my back as a cocktail table. And, that is why, if you or your company can afford it, you fly business class or first class. Stay safe.

    The Christian religion has popularized the notion of three persons in one, otherwise known as the Holy Trinity.

    But now comes Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris introducing the Hindu concept of the Binity. A big hand for the Binity, ladies and gentlemen. It is about Time.

    One person, but two hearts, two brains, two breasts, and only one complete dick.

    Replies: @Robard, @Bardon Kaldian, @epebble

    Trinity is a much older concept. But, binary view of the universe had long since been a staple of most advanced religious metaphysics in the world:

    Yin/Yang or, on cosmological level, Chien and Kun in Yin-Yang school & Neoconfucianism

    The Pen & the Tablet in Islamic Sufism of neo-Platonist provenance: World-Intellect/Aql-i-Qulli & World-Soul/Nafs-i-Qulli

    Shiva/Shakti in Shaivism (and some other forms of Hinduism)

    Yab/Yum in Vajrayana Buddhism

    Nous/Psykhe in Plotinus

    Binah/Chokmah in Kabbalah

    Basically, it is primordial “male” & primordial “female” whose union creates the world.

    Eliade had written a brilliant short piece on its earliest manifestation in Babylonia ca. 2000 BC.

    Although- I really cannot see that sexual union of Biden & Harris would have some transcendent significance ……

    Aliens Exist? Israel’s Ex-Space Boss Says “Yes, And Trump Knows About It”

    Haim Eshed, 87, in an interview to Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper, spoke extensively about the extraterrestrial life, and also elaborated about “an agreement” between the US government and a “Galactic Federation” of aliens.

    Aliens are real and US President Donald Trump knows about it, Israel’s former space security chief has made an unprecedented claim in an interview, stressing they’re keeping their existence a secret as “humanity is not ready for them“.

    Haim Eshed, 87, in an interview to Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper, spoke extensively about the extraterrestrial life, and also elaborated about “an agreement” between the US government and a “Galactic Federation” of aliens. Mr Eshed has headed Israel’s space security programme for nearly three decades, say reports.

    There is an agreement between the US government and the aliens as they wish to research and understand “the fabric of the universe”, the Jerusalem Post, another daily, quoted him as saying, citing the original interview published in Hebrew. This cooperation apparently includes a secret underground base on Mars.

    Donald Trump stopped short of revealing their existence because the Galactic Federation insisted “humanity is not ready yet”, Mr Eshed is believed to have told the daily. The aliens insisted humans need to “evolve and reach a stage where we will… understand what space and spaceships are”.

    Hopefully, Discover still works… the communist cosmopolitans have been working day and night to deny Americans the right to anything they don’t approve of; that’s why Wal-Mart won’t sell you 5.56 NATO and 7.62x39mm ammo. They already dropped handguns. Dick’s doesn’t have guns anymore. They were even going after Cabela’s in NYS for selling .45ACP ammo to someone under 21y/o, even though it is a rifle round in some guns like a DeLisle carbine clone.

    It is even getting down to the gun shop level.

    I just talked with an independent gun shop and was quite alarmed by what I heard. He relayed to me that only one payment processor would work with him to accept credit cards. Make no mistake, gun sellers are running out of time and will continue to be demonized by the tolerant left. They will silence us on all platforms, including financial. It’s only a matter of time until one of the big CC companies starts to deny business to firearms retailers. It’s inevitable. Eventually, your gun shop may say that their payment processor (based in California) canceled their account. Cash only. I can tolerate that locally. I am happy to spend anonymously, but that has downstream consequences…

    That means we have to go back 30 years to ordering by mail with personal checks and money orders. In the age of E-Comerce… can you imagine the tragedy of all those shops and accessory businesses going out of business because their monetary velocity suddenly slowed to a crawl? The convenience of the internet and the ability to find what we need easily is part of the explosive growth of the firearm industry. Losing such an important component of 21st-century commerce will be yet another nail in the coffin.

    Our ability to spend freely will be cut off… yet there is another way.

    I urge all gun owners to begin to understand cryptocurrency.

    [MORE]

    Unstoppable Money, Digital Scarcity

    Gun owners are sometimes technological curmudgeons. Aimpoints were a bad word and iron sights ruled the minds of shooters for years. Technology is yucky. Yet, it’s vital we understand it to combat what’s coming. To spend your money freely without permissions a key component of crypto. Who would be able to take advantage of this? That’s right. Joe Gun Shop.

    With cryptocurrency, there is no middle man. There is no central authority. There is only, in the simplest of terms, a network of nodes which log the exchange of currency from one address to another, and once they all come to an agreement that Joe was paid by Bob, it is recorded to the blockchain. No take-backs. No middle man. No government permission. No stopping the signal.
    bitcoin

    At the time of this writing (Nov 2020) one BTC is worth $15700. Does that surprise you?

    This is the currency we should be prepared to accept as gun owners. Liberty with your money is just as important as the first and second amendments. When every payment processor says no, we won’t service the gun industry… then we can simply say… we don’t need you and you are irrelevant.
    This is the way:

    Of course, it takes education to understand something so different. Older people don’t seem to understand the process and develop their own mythology around cryptocurrency. Let me give you a snippet rundown of the two big dogs:

    BTC

    The biggest and best of them, Bitcoin, has a huge following and is perfectly positioned to become digital gold. There are only 21 million and there won’t be any more created. It’s a feature. As an investment, it has outperformed every other asset since its inception. The base layer transacts slowly, but a second layer (known as lightning) allows us to transmit the bitcoin within seconds much like a credit card.

    ETH

    The next big dog is Etherum. It is programmable money. It allows the creation of smart contracts that give it unique properties such as being able to earn 3-10 percent interest on a dollar-pegged stable coin… with no banks needed. Oh, yea… you can also take out loans without a bank too. The coins interact with smart contracts and the possibilities are almost limitless.
    Security is Built-In

    Unstoppable money just happens to be the safest form of money. You have seen news of “exchanges” getting hacked. True, exchanges do get attacked, but the industry has grown with self-insurance, better security practices, etc. This is a new industry with new problems. These problems are being fixed rapidly. Keep your coins off the exchanges. Liberty and freedom come with responsibility. Sound familiar? The base level of security is your seed phrase. Comprised of 24 words, this phrase is your key to find your coins in the event that your phone or digital wallet is destroyed. Hackers cannot break the 24 words. The technology isn’t there to do so. Every computer on earth firing at once trying to solve that 24 word phrase would take more time than the existence of the universe to crack.

    A properly secured seed phrase (which is a backup of your digital wallet) is as secure as the safe, or location that guards it. If it is lost or hidden so well that no one can find it after you die… then there is no recovering it.

    The problems with bitcoin is volatility. Understandable someone doesn’t want their money fluctuating wildly, but when the alternative is no money coming in then gun shops and gun owners must find a way. Also… consider than over 90% of all wallets are in profit at this time. That means it’s been growing silently in the background as large institutions begin to take positions. There are worse places to store your money.
    Wrapping Up:

    There is no low the liberals will sink too, and applying pressure to credit card companies, as well as banking institutions, are inevitable. “We don’t serve yucky gun owners” will be the virtue signal as their ground team burns out poor inner-city communities and riots over such horrible things as a Lincoln statue. We need to be flexible. We need to remove ourselves from their economy and let the vine wither. We need options. We need unstoppable money, the right to speak freely, and the ability to bear arms. I am not saying you should learn about this stuff, but rather you NEED to learn about it. I urge gun owners and gun businesses to start learning rickety tick. Our choices are narrowing every year and time is a luxury we don’t have. We must make our own way.

    The radio host is one of Trump's biggest supporters and was controversially given the nation's highest civilian honor by the president in February
    The only other time in American history that states have seceded was in the lead-up to the Civil War when 11 southern states cut ties with the Union

    She is entirely by design. The establishment never really wanted Biden but he was saved by Blacks in the primary and Sanders was viewed as too risky.

    The Dem establishment wants their Black(ish) female president. I'm sure they told him behind closed doors that he had a short list to choose from.

    Not that Biden would resist the idea. The guy is a true believer in that he thinks Bad Whites are the problem. Just look at how he told that Black audience that a White man didn't invent the light bulb. In his mind Blacks are held back by their environment that was created by Bad Whites. By handing the presidency to a Black(ish) woman he is doing his part in righting the ship.

    Part of the reason I didn't want Biden to win is because he is a true believer. The true believer Democrats don't end up helping anyone because they live in a childish fantasy world where they have good intentions but ineffective solutions. Harris isn't a true believer but still worse overall. She knows race exists and hates White people for it.

    Once I was on a flight to Seattle from Philly, with a connection in Atlanta ( this makes no sense geographically but that's how airlines work - it must have been Delta). It was a short connection and the incoming flight was a little late so I RAN thru the vast Atlanta airport and got to the other gate on time (Murphy's Law says that your connecting flight gate is always at the most distant part of the airport from your arrival gate). And I plopped into my aisle seat and the middle seat was empty and at the window seat there was a young woman who was very easy on the eyes. I thought to myself that this should be a very pleasant and comfortable flight or at least as good as sitting in a tube for five and a half hours gets. And then the plane sat and sat and finally they announced that they were waiting for someone to make a connection. After maybe 30 minutes of waiting, an extremely obese man (I mean the guy must have weighed 400 lbs.) gets on and he waddles up to my row - he is assigned the middle seat. I tell the cabin crew politely oh hell no and they have mercy on me and move me to the exit row so it all worked out but there was no way that this guy's ass was going to fit in that middle seat cushion. They really need to make folks like this buy two seats, which is only fair because they weigh as much as 2 people.

    Thanks for posting the picture of Chancellor Hitler. My favorite AH story involves the modified U-boat that carried Adolf and Eva Hitler to Argentina where they lived out the rest of their lives in the splendid province of Bariloche. The U-boat crew were subsequently executed by waiting agents of Die Spinne, Otto Skorzeny’s organization; no doubt to leave Herr Hitler’s escape trail as cold as possible. By then, I imagine, the German sailors willingly walked into the bullets after weeks of inhaling Adolf’s notoriously toxic burps and farts.

    After the war, the Russians undertook a very extensive investigation of Hitler and Eva's remains and of the witnesses in order to be sure that he was really, really dead, but being Soviets they kept everything secret until the downfall of Communism. Despite full well knowing that he was dead (they had his skull matched to dental records), they promoted the idea that he was alive and being sheltered by the capitalists as part of their propaganda campaign against the West. The victory of Socialism by any means was much more important than the truth, which is not important at all to Communists.

    Oddly enough, they did not get around to cremating his bones and throwing the ashes to the wind until 1970.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Person_of_the_Year#Controversial_choices

    Despite the magazine’s frequent statements to the contrary, the designation is often regarded as an honor, and spoken of as an award or prize, simply based on many previous selections of admirable people.[9] However, Time magazine points out that controversial figures such as Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1939 and 1942), Nikita Khrushchev (1957) and Ayatollah Khomeini (1979) have also been granted the title for their impacts.[10]

    As a result of the public backlash it received from the United States for naming Khomeini as Man of the Year in 1979, Time has since shied away from using figures who are controversial in the United States for commercial reasons, fearing reductions in sales or advertising revenue.[11]

    Time‘s Person of the Year 2001, immediately following the September 11, 2001 attacks, was New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani.[12] The stated rules of selection, the individual or group of individuals who have had the biggest effect on the year’s news, made Osama bin Laden the more likely choice that year. The issue that declared Giuliani the Person of the Year included an article that mentioned Time‘s earlier decision to select Ayatollah Khomeini and the 1999 rejection of Hitler as “Person of the Century”. The article seemed to imply that Osama bin Laden was a stronger candidate than Giuliani, as Adolf Hitler was a stronger candidate than Albert Einstein. The selections were ultimately based on what the magazine describes as who they believed had a stronger influence on history and who represented either the year or the century the most. According to Time, Rudolph Giuliani was selected for symbolizing the American response to the September 11th attacks, and Albert Einstein selected for representing a century of scientific exploration and wonder.

    Another controversial choice was the 2006 selection of “You”, representing most if not all people for advancing the information age by using the Internet (via e.g. blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and Wikipedia).[13]

    Accusations of criminal activity (whether child abuse, rape, or anything else) are not proof of the alleged activity. Allegations are fleeting, whereas a jury verdict of guilt requires substantive probity.

    I’d say she looks North African, like a darker Levantine, or Puerto Rican, not black or Indian. She kind of resembles a less attractive Paula Abdul.

  138. Interesting article from Matty Yglesias. The TL;DR summary: Despite compromises with the Jim Crow South, the New Deal Demos made significant inroads with Blacks because Blacks liked the increased government services that they were receiving:

    Hoover was the last Republican to win a majority of the Black vote. But FDR’s record on civil rights was not good. It’s not just that he made compromises with segregationists in congress — everyone did that, including De Priest and Mitchell, they were just too powerful to ignore. He refused to endorse anti-lynching legislation, in contrast to past GOP presidents like Warren Harding who’d done so despite the legislative futility.

    But African-Americans voted for him because they liked his economic agenda.

    One issue is that addressing racial equity explicitly has become a very high prestige undertaking internal to the operations of progressive spaces.

    But the other issue is that people operate inside institutional silos. Many more Hispanic voters say education as a very important issue to them than say that immigration is. But you have people in specialized “Latino Politics” roles, and they want to bring something distinctive to the table which encourages more focus on immigration. Otherwise you’re really just saying “everyone cares about schools” and there’s nothing all that special about your silo.

    Jamelle Bouie did a post-election roundup highlighting the significance of Trump’s signature on relief checks to his gains with Black and Hispanic voters. On The Weeds, Karl Smith more emphasized the strong pre-pandemic recovery and the way that was particularly beneficial to Black and Hispanic workers. I don’t know exactly how we’d apportion between those two theories, but they point in the same direction — Trump’s association with generic improved material conditions outweighed both his often-racist behavior and Democrats greatly increased emphasis on centering anti-racism in politics. That’s exactly how Mitchell won, it’s the real story of race and the New Deal, and it should be something of a cautionary tale for Democrats going forward.

    So, maybe a path forward for the GOP would be for them to embrace a combo of social conservatism and liberal social safety net stuff…..As opposed to their current combo of tax cuts for the wealthy and endless wars….

    Interesting article from Matty Yglesias. The TL;DR summary: Despite compromises with the Jim Crow South, the New Deal Demos made significant inroads with Blacks because Blacks liked the increased government services that they were receiving:

    Hoover was the last Republican to win a majority of the Black vote. But FDR’s record on civil rights was not good. It’s not just that he made compromises with segregationists in congress — everyone did that, including De Priest and Mitchell, they were just too powerful to ignore. He refused to endorse anti-lynching legislation, in contrast to past GOP presidents like Warren Harding who’d done so despite the legislative futility.

    But African-Americans voted for him because they liked his economic agenda.
     

    One issue is that addressing racial equity explicitly has become a very high prestige undertaking internal to the operations of progressive spaces.
     

    But the other issue is that people operate inside institutional silos. Many more Hispanic voters say education as a very important issue to them than say that immigration is. But you have people in specialized “Latino Politics” roles, and they want to bring something distinctive to the table which encourages more focus on immigration. Otherwise you’re really just saying “everyone cares about schools” and there’s nothing all that special about your silo.
     

    Jamelle Bouie did a post-election roundup highlighting the significance of Trump’s signature on relief checks to his gains with Black and Hispanic voters. On The Weeds, Karl Smith more emphasized the strong pre-pandemic recovery and the way that was particularly beneficial to Black and Hispanic workers. I don’t know exactly how we’d apportion between those two theories, but they point in the same direction — Trump’s association with generic improved material conditions outweighed both his often-racist behavior and Democrats greatly increased emphasis on centering anti-racism in politics. That’s exactly how Mitchell won, it’s the real story of race and the New Deal, and it should be something of a cautionary tale for Democrats going forward.
     
    So, maybe a path forward for the GOP would be for them to embrace a combo of social conservatism and liberal social safety net stuff.....As opposed to their current combo of tax cuts for the wealthy and endless wars....

    Trump gave them the tax cuts, but because he resisted pointless wars (pointless for America, anyway), he had to go.
    When Biden said “America is back”, he was really announcing the return of the good times for war machine.

    We will soon, yet again, be dragged into a series of destructive and expensive wars that serve no American interest.

So attempting to destroy their whole business for this reason seems wrong to me. Every once in a while there must be items on ebay that are illegal to sell - things made out of ivory or medicines that are not approved in the US or whatever. Should we cut off ebay's credit card acceptance abilities because of this? This is the financial equivalent of the death penalty for jaywalking.

    If Biden gets in, then decides to continue Obama’s program of giving nukes to Iran in return for Iran lining his personal pocket the way Obama did via roundabout payments to a handler like Valerie Jarrett, Israel may decide Biden is more trouble than he’s worth. If that happens, we’ll find out who’s smarter, the Secret Service or Mossad’s top murder squad. Any pro-Muslim tilt by Biden is going to get him finished off. Israel isn’t going to make the mistake of letting a pro-Muslim US president appear again.

    Harris is very likely Mossad’s real choice instead of Biden. She spent 20 years as a prosecutor with no interest in running for any sort of political office, then she marries a Jewish guy. Within months, she starts running for the US Senate. Anyone who isn’t a dummy should wise up and be suspicious of the timing. Her husband is most likely a Mossad asset, and he’s pulling her strings for the Jewish government, and he’s her puppet master. By all accounts, he’s a lot smarter than she is.

    From now on, Israel is going to make sure that any presidential candidate with a chance of winning is going to have a Jewish handler–in the form a close family member with ties to the Israeli government, to make sure all American policy from now on is pro-Jewish. Israel sees this as only common sense and something worth the investment.

    On 19 July 2016, Adama Traoré’s 24th birthday, Traoré was out with his older brother Bagui in the Paris suburb of Beaumont-sur-Oise. Police approached the pair, seeking Bagui who was accused of extortion with violence.[3] The officers requested to check their IDs, but Traoré did not have his and fled. He was caught by officers, but fled again and was caught a second time, then handcuffed. The arresting officer was attacked and knocked to the ground by an unknown third party who fled the scene, allowing Traoré to escape again to hide in a nearby house.[4][5] Three officers of the National Gendarmerie found him hiding under a sheet without the handcuffs and pinned him down to arrest him.[3][4]

    . ….After an hour, Traoré was declared dead at the scene.[3] After his death Traoré was found to have been in possession of €1,330 in cash and a bag of cannabis.[8] Traoré had previously been convicted of various offenses–including rebellion and violence against the police, extortion, drug related offenses, and stealing–and had been incarcerated twice. He had been released from prison in May 2016, two months before his death.[9]

    Does any of this sound familiar? I know this is an HBD blog, but is this behavior really genetically programmed, like the way that beavers build dams and bees build hives? Different culture, different language, different everything but Traoré and his brother Bagui act EXACTLY like Taquan in Detroit and Jemale in Baltimore and on and on. Is it like the Masons where they teach you the rituals at the lodge? Do they watch YouTube videos? Why is it so eerily identical?

    Isn’t it wonderful that, now that France has a large black population, they can enjoy the exact same benefits of diversity that we have here in America. Black people in America are involved in crime because of the legacy of Jim Crow or redlining or something like that. What is their excuse in France?

    If you want to see what a black person's natural hair and skin color are, you have to find a childhood photo. The rule of thumb among blacks is that the richer and more famous they get the whiter and more European looking they become - sometimes it's hard to believe that it's the same person.

    Like most black women, the hair that you see is the product of artifice and chemicals, not nature. Most white people have literally no idea what black women go thru to make their hair resemble Caucasian hair. It's quite a process and it requires lifelong maintenance. Maybe this is why black women are always complaining about being tired. I'd be tired too if I had to spend many hours per week on my hair in addition to everything else.

(New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan, in 2014, after one of his key sources was exposed for lying about sex trafficking: “Nicholas Kristof Should Give Readers a Full Explanation About Somaly Mam.”) [...] Exodus Cry’s Traffickinghub campaign is not unlike the rebranding efforts that anti-porn groups attempted by pivoting to “sex trafficking.” They know there’s no shortage of people, especially women, who are outraged and looking to get organized around fighting rape and abuse, who want to expose Pornhub’s business practices.

    It’s not true – Kamala’s natural hair is wooly and much darker than her current brunette color.

    If you want to see what a black person’s natural hair and skin color are, you have to find a childhood photo. The rule of thumb among blacks is that the richer and more famous they get the whiter and more European looking they become – sometimes it’s hard to believe that it’s the same person.

    Like most black women, the hair that you see is the product of artifice and chemicals, not nature. Most white people have literally no idea what black women go thru to make their hair resemble Caucasian hair. It’s quite a process and it requires lifelong maintenance. Maybe this is why black women are always complaining about being tired. I’d be tired too if I had to spend many hours per week on my hair in addition to everything else. It’s not an accident that the first black millionaire was a black woman who made hair straightening products.

    Thanks for posting the picture of Chancellor Hitler. My favorite AH story involves the modified U-boat that carried Adolf and Eva Hitler to Argentina where they lived out the rest of their lives in the splendid province of Bariloche. The U-boat crew were subsequently executed by waiting agents of Die Spinne, Otto Skorzeny's organization; no doubt to leave Herr Hitler's escape trail as cold as possible. By then, I imagine, the German sailors willingly walked into the bullets after weeks of inhaling Adolf's notoriously toxic burps and farts.

    Replies: @Jack D, @MEH 0910

    After the war, the Russians undertook a very extensive investigation of Hitler and Eva’s remains and of the witnesses in order to be sure that he was really, really dead, but being Soviets they kept everything secret until the downfall of Communism. Despite full well knowing that he was dead (they had his skull matched to dental records), they promoted the idea that he was alive and being sheltered by the capitalists as part of their propaganda campaign against the West. The victory of Socialism by any means was much more important than the truth, which is not important at all to Communists.

    Oddly enough, they did not get around to cremating his bones and throwing the ashes to the wind until 1970.

  189. Most stuff that sells is conservative: nearly all Clint Eastwood movies, all Stallone and Schwarzenegger movies, Die Hard, most of the Marvel stuff, most cop shows etc.

    This is because of the demands of drama and comedy. Respect and obey trusted authorities and hate hate hate your White ancestors and skin color is not something that sells broadly enough. Yes blacks and other non-Whites eat that up like a serving of Mickey D’s fries but Whites generally don’t buy it: Watchmen TV show, the CW Woke Superhero stuff, etc.

    Drama and most comedies demand: the authorities are corrupt, inept, or evil. The hero must act in overwhelming odds against them and the villain. Who is the embodiment of cruelty and arrogance, often upper class (aristocratic British Accent marxist thief villain Hans Gruber vs everyman John McClane). Thus the cops have to be over-matched, the FBI idiots, and the only one able and willing to act the central hero. This is why that stuff sells — Joe Average can put himself in that place. He’s emotionally invested in a way he’s not for “Precious” — an obese stupid black woman gets the shaft — who cares?

    Streaming in many ways is the death knell for someone like Black. He’ll probably be boxing stuff at Trader Joes soon enough. The money is running out. The amusement parks will come back (maybe, the Powers that be are prepping a new series of lockdowns forever for something out of Kazakhstan) but at a fraction of their former revenue. Theatrical release and that revenue is dead. Cable is declining rapidly and nothing can replace its revenue. People are not going to pay for streaming something like $55. Certainly not when they can pirate stuff easily and just by going to swap meets and the like. NONE I mean NONE of the streaming services make money. Disney Plus streaming is bleeding cash to the tune of around $300 million PER QUARTER. That’s net.

    Meanwhile someone in Switzerland or Austria can make cheaply with digital equipment decent series on reasonable budgets and sell them on various platforms. They won’t make bank but it would be a nice income. No money though to subsidize bitchy gay men bitching about straight White guys.

    After around 200 attempts, which ceased in the 1960s, legislation did not pass in Congress. Nearly 60 years later, Harris joined Booker and Scott in picking up the mantle by co-authoring the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act, which was later renamed the Emmett Till Antilynching Act.
     
    Stopping by as the Jussie Smollett Antilynching Act on the way?

    And in doing so, Harris continued the tradition of Black women working for the betterment of all humankind.

    These are just a few examples of how examining Harris’ specific experiences and relationships—different from those of the past and present occupants of high office—may yield a deeper understanding of the woman who just made history. But they are a reminder that the U.S. will not only have its first Vice President who is a Black and Indian-American woman, as important as those milestones are. Harris is standing on a firm foundation of service, courage, struggle, passion, intellectual rigor and hope. She is indeed ready to go to work.

    She is entirely by design. The establishment never really wanted Biden but he was saved by Blacks in the primary and Sanders was viewed as too risky.

    The Dem establishment wants their Black(ish) female president. I’m sure they told him behind closed doors that he had a short list to choose from.

    Not that Biden would resist the idea. The guy is a true believer in that he thinks Bad Whites are the problem. Just look at how he told that Black audience that a White man didn’t invent the light bulb. In his mind Blacks are held back by their environment that was created by Bad Whites. By handing the presidency to a Black(ish) woman he is doing his part in righting the ship.

    Part of the reason I didn’t want Biden to win is because he is a true believer. The true believer Democrats don’t end up helping anyone because they live in a childish fantasy world where they have good intentions but ineffective solutions. Harris isn’t a true believer but still worse overall. She knows race exists and hates White people for it.

Though, worth noting, anybody can make an OnlyFans to post whatever they think they can get people to pay for, lewd or otherwise.) A week later, Thorne said that number had grown to $2 million,[…] . Because the reported PPV message was not, in fact, a nude, OF users requested refunds at such a rate that some creators are claiming it prompted the platform to make changes to how it pays creators. Creators in some countries will now have to wait 30 days, up from 7, to receive payouts. “Creators on OnlyFans receive 80 percent of their subscription revenue and can also receive tips from their fans,” a spokesperson for OnlyFans told Vulture in a release.

    Well, my conservative cultural vision includes TS Eliot, John Ford, Robert Frost, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Willa Cather, Edith Wharton, Henry Adams, David Lynch, HP Lovecraft, Howard Hawks, Ray Bradbury, Tom Wolfe, ….

    A bunch of dead people who aren't creating anything anymore (and David Lynch)? To the extent that any of those people were "conservative" in their prime creative years, I seriously wonder how not garbage any of their politics ever really were.

    Contemporary conservatism is always just yesterdays liberalism anyway.

    Edith Wharton and Henry James books were very very dark creepy and unpleasant. Edith Wharton’s basic plot was that the bad guys and gals always won over the nice ones. Henry James, the good guys and gals at least had a chance but lost anyway. Age of innocence was the only Wharton novel that wasn’t a tragedy.
