conspiracy set forth in Durham’s indictment of Dem lawyer Sussmann who, in conjunction with a host of Dem operatives and Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign, was instrumental in fabricating the most successful & destructive political smear in US history.…
Confronted by an insurmountable mountain of proof of Clinton’s grossly negligent and therefore felonious mishandling of classified information, Comey, with a straight face and without apparent embarrassment, raised a totally irrelevant nonissue (lack of clear proof of intent) to
give Clinton a pass. He did this even though others — equally without clear proof of intent — had been convicted on far less evidence.
Keep in mind that Comey thus became 1st FBI director to arrogate to himself the authority of the attorney general to make a charging decision.

"Across three Anglophone countries, a significant portion of academics discriminate against conservatives in hiring, promotion, grants and publications. Over 4 in 10 US and Canadian academics would not hire a Trump supporter, and 1 in 3 British academics would not hire a Brexit
"Gender-critical feminist scholars appear to experience even more discrimination than conservatives. Only 28% of American and Canadian academics would feel comfortable having lunch with someone who opposes the idea of transwomen accessing women’s shelters."
However: "Younger academics & PhD students, especially in US, are significantly more willing than older academics to support dismissing controversial scholars from their posts, indicating that the problem of progressive authoritarianism is likely to get worse in the coming years.

Karl Nemmersdorf's article on Fay Stender, radical attorney who spearheaded prison rights movement in the 70s, is relevant to the current madness. Stender was seriously wounded by a former inmate. "A few radicals began to suspect the truth about convicts.… Image
Fay's shooting highlighted the hypocrisy in the radical community. Almost all of them now supported the police and district attorney and wanted the shooter prosecuted, even though they had “spent their professional lives denouncing the criminal justice system as an instrument
of racial and class oppression and defending accused criminals as social victims.” The hypocrisy reached a greater poignancy when a former colleague of Fay’s, a member of the Prison Law Project, appeared on the shooter’s defense team, stating later, “I was just seething at the

Andrew Joyce read Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility so you don't have to.
“White Fragility” is an indictment and insult levelled at White progressives who are merely frozen by fear of racism accusations and White guilt. White Fragility is a horrifying… Image
call for Whites not simply to be paralyzed by White guilt, but to become active participants in their decline, and willing accomplices in their political and demographic destruction.
DiAngelo has contempt for people White progressives because they place all their energies into grandstanding instead of helping in the transfer of real power and wealth. I have contempt for them because they place all their energies into grandstanding for short-term personal

There is an incredibly powerful moral tsunami that is sweeping America, like the moral crusade that led to the Civil War. Another example of American Millenarianism rooted in our Puritan tradition and now exploited by our hostile elite.
Very difficult to withstand in the face
of massive media coverage. Imagine the ostracism a player would get if he didn't bend the knee--unheard of last year in MLB. Suburban White folks are conforming to this social pressure & the moral tsunami may well result in a landslide victory for the left in November.
The only thing I see possibly preventing this is if those who oppose this tsunami keep emphasizing the violence that is occurring in urban America. In 1968 Nixon got elected on a law and order platform in the context of the riots while the left was still preaching moral idealism.

it. As a very, very proud Jew, I believe very strongly that we need to fight back—not in the streets, not using violence—but fight back using the courts…My Judaism influences every single thing I do all day long.
"At this point, Milo’s intent is clear [in his approval of Fuentes]: hijack nationalist sentiments away to steer them away from racial & class consciousness, directing them instead towards a pro-Israel, pro-Catholic, anti-Islam, anti-family “groyper nationalism.”

The 1980s: When the financialization of the economy really took off, and with it outsourcing, free trade, etc.--the consequence of the rise of our new elite, and it's no coincidence that at the same time paleocons were displaced from the Reagan administration in favor of neocons.
"our political economy has been driven by investment banks, hedge funds, private equity firms, real estate developers, insurance goliaths, and a whole menagerie of ancillary enterprises that service them. But high times in FIRE land have depended on the downward mobility of
working people and the poor, cut adrift from more secure industrial havens and increasingly from the lifelines of public support. They have been living instead in the “pit of austerity.”

@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger I hate to find disagreements among people who essentially agree on all the important issues. I didn't believe the accusations against Kavanaugh at all--clearly politically motivated. So, without believing all women (absurd), it's certainly reasonable to believe some women.
@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger And part of evolved male psychology includes sexual coercion--if you can get away with it. Rape is very widespread during wars and I see no reason why a powerful person like Weinstein should be believed when so many women testified against him & "everyone in Hollywood knew."
@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger Sister of a friend of my wife is a well-known Hollywood actress. She recounted an episode where Weinstein invited himself to her apartment in NYC in the middle of the night, only avoiding the situation by getting her boyfriend to come there before W got there. She didn't testify.

Andrew Joyce on Jewish Crypsis in American Buddhism
"It is conservatively estimated that around 30% of non-Asian Buddhists are ethnically Jewish, and many of these are in leadership positions over the remaining 70%, composed mainly of European-Americans."…
“From my conversations with many of these Buddhist leaders, they have spoken openly about how their commitments to social justice are shaped by their Jewish upbringings.”
Emily Sigalow, American JewBu: Jews, Buddhists, and Religious Change, 2019.
Sigalow remarks that not only have Jews “emerged as prominent teachers and leaders,” in Zen, Insight Meditation, and Tibetan Buddhism, but that they have uniquely imbued American Buddhism with an “activist ethic” that it has lacked elsewhere and at any time previous.

Heather MacDonald: "Bureau of Justice Statistics released its 2018 survey of criminal victimization: 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks.…
Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence.
In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well.

IMO before we condemn @TuckerCarlson, 1) we should realize he's the best by far in the MSM and likely has red-pilled many; 2) stating explicit White identity and interests is still a deal breaker, so he would just get fired; 3) he said "White Supremacy" is hoax and by most
definitions it is, since the idea that Whites are "superior" is typically attributed in the MSM to all White advocates when they accuse them of White supremicism. Nothing could be further from the truth: It's about having an explicit White identity and belief that Whites have
legitimate group interests.The term "White supremacy" is typical leftist language manipulation, like "White privilege": In all societies, the majority group has some privileges. The question is whether it's legitimate for Whites to want to retain an ethnic and political majority.

How naive/traitorous do you have to be to allow a patriot of a foreign country to own an enriched uranium plant that supplies uranium to the US government? But no, this (and Milchin's actions) couldn't possibly raise a loyalty issue.…
"By 1965, Israel obtained raw material consisting of U.S. government-owned weapons grade uranium obtained from a company called NUMEC, which was founded in 1956 and owned by Zalman Mordecai Shapiro, head of the Pittsburgh chapter of the Zionist Organization of America."
"NUMEC was also a front for the Israeli nuclear program, with its chief funder David Lowenthal, a leading Zionist, traveling to Israel at least once a month where he would meet with an old friend Meir Amit, who headed Israeli intelligence."

I've often thought that Aristotle was the most brilliant human of all time. Here @GuiDurocher describes his ideas and observations on politics. Aristotle was not at all an individualist. Policies should be tailored for the good of the group.…
He was also very aware that diversity leads to conflict and that tyrants desire diversity because a diverse population is unlikely to coalesce against them and they are therefore easier to enslave--the Frankfurt School program in a nutshell.
Also notes that a hostile elite benefits from importing ethnic outsiders to oppress the natives--the central theme of Jewish life in traditional societies as they made alliances with aristocracies bent on extracting resources from the natives.

Andrew Joyce: On Liam Neeson and the Philosophy of the White Vigilante
"In a blurring of stark individualism and concern for the group as a whole, these characters often live (and behave) at the margins of the society they go on to protect.
They possess an open disdain for social permissiveness, bureaucracy, and procedure, and, finally, they are the spartan, right wing existentialist practitioners of a violent urban vigilantism."
Overlooked is the stark reality that sexual access to females, often in the context of rape, has been a perennial fons et origo for group conflict, and certainly for vigilantism. Historically women have been regarded as the vessels of familial, communal, and group honor

JS Tobin: Many of the protesters have been carrying signs and chanting slogans calling Macron the “whore of the Jews” and “the Jews’ puppet.”
What, you may ask, do the Jews have to do with French economic policy?…
The correct answer is nothing. But to those wearing the yellow vests, Jews are apparently synonymous with the “establishment”—the unseen and anonymous power-brokers they feel are manipulating their lives and destroying their country."
In fact, Jews are a wealthy, powerful component of the French elite. See, e.g., @GuiDurocher's review of Anne Kline's La France LICRAtisée and Le CRIF: Un lobby au cœur de la République…

Free speech is under attack from the left as never before. Here is an excellent chapter from Richard Houck's book Liberalism Unmasked detailing the assault, carried out with their "Intense sense of righteousness or moral superiority" on display.…
Houck diagnoses the psychology of liberal war on free speech: 1 Deceitfulness, indicated by repeated lying, grand exaggerations, or omission of contrary information, with the purpose to advance their chosen narrative and discrediting others.
2. Irritability or aggressiveness towards anybody that questions or opposes their views. Coupled with the inability to recognize they own hypocrisy, double standards, and doublethink.
3. Inability to adjust views when presented with information contrary to their own beliefs.

Individualism typical of Western societies means being more generous to strangers rather than family. Individualists are also less prone to ethnocentrism. This is likely a major reason why so many Westerners welcomes refugees, migration of poor people, etc. Maladaptive long term.
Here's a tweet from a White woman who typifies this openness to strangers, even at high cost. Rather than see deaths from illegal immigrants as a preventable evil, she says some citizens, who can't be deported, drive drunk too.
Western individualism has been highly adaptive and led to high-trust societies that have been incredibly creative and economically productive. But there is good reason to suppose that making people from collectivist societies a majority will end all that.
