St. Louis paper holds ignorant black man up to ridicule

www.thepoliticalcesspool.org

Yeah, liberals love and respect black people. Sure they do. Check out this story from a couple weeks ago. I missed it, but found it on HBD. It’s about a 51 year old black man who finds a “million dollar bill” in a phone booth, believes it’s real, and his two month “odyssey” to find out if it’s real.

Yes, you read that right. A reporter hears about some ignoramus who found a $1 million dollar bill and is trying to determine if it’s authentic. So Todd Frankel, instead of politely explaining to the simpleton that there’s no such thing (without necessarily adding that anyone with an IQ above 70 should know that), writes up a long story about the man’s “hunt for the truth.” Now, granted, the front of the bill does look pretty realistic.
Thanks Kirk Cameron!

But it says RESERVED NOTE instead of FEDERAL RESERVE NOTE, and if you look close it says that the bill is not legal tender. But at first glance, if you lacked the common knowledge that there’s never been any such thing as a $1 million note, and the common sense to understand why that is, it could certainly be deceiving.

Still though, you would think that the back of the bill might have been a slight tip off.
Yeah, this is authentic currency

Here’s what that says:

The million dollar question: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test. Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell. That’s not God’s will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. You broke God’s Law, but Jesus paid your fine. That means He can legally dismiss your case. He can commute your death sentence: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus alone, and God will grant you the gift of everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it.

In other words, it’s a gospel tract. It’s put out by a former child actor who found Jesus, and now wants to share the good news by tricking not very bright people into thinking they’ve just come into a million bucks. Which anyone could have discovered in about 30 seconds on Google. But instead of telling this guy that’s he’s just the latest low IQ victim of former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron and his zeal for Christ, Frankel pretends to take him seriously. He then ridicules him by writing as if the man’s abysmal ignorance is not only commendable, but puts him right up there with Henry Ford and Thomas Edison.

He had set out to discover the truth of his find. Months trickled by. He kept searching. The answer seemed just out of reach. But he felt he was closing in. You could laugh it off as a quixotic quest — except for the way he went about it. No short cuts. No scams. He moved with deliberation, like a man aware of the stakes.

Deliberation? Yeah, like this guy can even spell the word. Deliberation? You talkin’ ’bout when we rise up and kill all de honkies?

Frankel praises his ignorance as a “restless curiosity about the world”:

The idea of a search suited Rodney, a high school dropout who retains a restless curiosity about the world. He is the type of person who tries piecing together how a new neighborhood gas station makes its money; who wants to know how the Internet is changing people’s lives, yet rarely has sat at a computer; who slips several coins into a charity donation box at a fast-food place, then wonders aloud if his money really goes to a good cause.

Or, as HBD puts it:

I can just imagine him explaining this aspect of his personalilty to the reporter. “I’m jus’ tha type of brutha’ that gotta know. Like this one time I was at Mikeedees and dey had this little box, you know, for da kids? And yea, I gave’em a few pennies but then I akst the cashier you know, be that money really goin’ to da kids? I jus’ gotta know.”

So the “odyssey” begins. Rodney Dukes was convinced the bill was real, and that he was a rich man. His wife tried to tell him it was fake, but he wouldn’t listen. He asked his dad, who thought it was probably legit. He asked some other old men, who knew things, because they “had been around”, and they agreed it sure looked real. He took the bill to a bank teller and asked her about it. The teller, no doubt an affirmative action hire, was clueless. All she knew was that she had never seen one before. He went to the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, but the security guards told him they don’t deal with customers, only other banks. But one of the guards did give him a pamphlet from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. So in June he scraped together some money and mailed it off to the Bureau, registered mail, no doubt insured for a million dollars.

Then he waited. And he waited. And he waited some more. By October he started to get worried at the lack of a response, although he was starting to believe that it was good news, and the people at the Bureau were just taking their time because they couldn’t figure out how a man on the street came into possession of one of these rare bills. But finally he got tired of waiting, and took action. He went to federal court and filed a handwritten lawsuit demanding the return of his million dollar bill. The judge threw the suit out, calling it “incoherent.” So he refiled it, and the judge threw it out again. He filed suit a third time, and it was thrown out again.

Finally, Rodney Dukes has his first sensible idea. He (and evidently the reporter) goes to the library to see what he can find out. He can’t figure out how to use the computers, so a clerk runs some internet searches for him. He finds a story about a fake million dollar bill being deposited at a bank, but it had Grover Cleveland’s picture, and Rodney’s has Rutherford B. Hayes, so no worries. And when the clerk can’t find any reference to the US government ever printing a million buck note, but also can’t find anything that definitely says they never have, Rodney keeps hope alive.

Finally he gets a letter from the Bureau by registered mail. They returned the bill, and informed him that it was worthless play money. But he gives it one last shot. He takes it to a local coin store, where he is again informed that it’s not real. And so the “odyssey” ends, and Rodney Dukes, tireless hunter for truth, has his answer.

And the St. Louis Post Dispatch makes a fool out of him by publishing this long article so the whole city can laugh at him. They also publish a note along with the article:

The Post-Dispatch learned of Rodney Dukes’ efforts to discover whether his $1 million bill was real from federal court filings in late September. Reporter Todd C. Frankel spent more than two months following Dukes on his odyssey. As with any news story, Frankel avoided interfering with the course of events, so that the story could unfold as naturally as possible.

So this reporter spent over two months “following Dukes on his odyssey”? And he refused to spill the beans to this pathetic person because that would violate journalistic ethics or some hogwash like that? What a load of BS. Instead they turn him into the laughing stock of St. Louis. That’s incredible.

No one should make fun of someone because they’re not very bright, but it’s even more cruel to pretend that an ignoramus is a genius. The Rodney Dukes’ of the world have it tough enough already without some reporter yanking their chains just to get a story. This is pathetic and inexcusable.

There’s an article in Rodney Dukes’ “odyssey” alright. Every paper in America should be publishing piece after piece wondering just what kind of future America can look forward to when it’s not only filling up with millions more people like Rodney Duke, but pandering and groveling to them at every opportunity. It’s bad enough that a man as ignorant as Rodney Dukes is allowed to vote, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’re actively destroying our nation and its institutions in the “odyssey” to raise the millions of Rodney Dukes in America to our level, in the never ending “hunt for equality” that is going to end as fruitlessly as Rodney Dukes’ “hunt for the truth” did.

Steven Crowder is a racist


-
No, not the KKK kind; the patronizing, “black peoples’ problems are all white peoples’ fault” kind. He’s also someone who would rather make a complete fool of himself than face reality, because he’s afraid liberals might call him a racist.

If you want to know why the Republican Party is dying, and will soon be extinct, just watch Crowder’s latest video, (at the bottom of this post) which is all about how the once great city of Detroit became a wasteland. Crowder says he had to make the video because all Americans need to see what happened to Detroit, and more importantly, to understand why it happened, before it happens to the entire country.

So far, so good. Certainly, Detroit should be a warning to all of us. But, as you might’ve guessed with a PC neocon like Crowder on the job, things quickly went downhill from there. He makes a complete jackass of himself by blaming everything he can think of, tossing out every “conservative” platitude he’s ever heard, to explain the nightmare Detroit has become.

Except, of course, the people of Detroit. Oh, Lord no. Black people are never responsible for how they live. They don’t create their own situations; life is just something that’s done to them by other people, usually white liberals, in Crowder’s worldview. (If he were a liberal, what happened to Detroit would be white conservatives’ fault.) Blacks are just helpless pawns of forces beyond their control. Because Crowder’s not a racist or anything. He believes we’re all equal, except that blacks have no responsibility or accountability for their own lives.

He starts off by blaming “leftists”, because “every mayor since 1961 has been a liberal.” Hey Steve, here’s a little tip for ya. There are a whole bunch of places in America that are run by “leftists”, and have been for a long, long time. Places like Boston, New York City, Berkeley, San Francisco, Chicago, the states of Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, etc. But none of these places look like Detroit. So blaming “leftists” and “liberal mayors” doesn’t quite cut it. Granted, there are pockets in all of these places that look like Detroit, and guess what else these pockets have in common with Detroit, Steve? That’s right; they’re populated by almost nothing but blacks, that’s what. Yeah, “leftists” destroyed Detroit the same way “leftists” rioted after the Rodney King verdict. Uh-huh, “liberals” are to blame…and Louis Farrakhan heads up the “Liberal” Muslims.

Then he goes on to say that the problem started with the white mayor in 1965, and the white president, LBJ, and the Model Cities program, because it poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Detroit. Normally, pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into an area doesn’t cause it to become a wasteland, but Steven Crowder has an explanation for that, too. See, government money leads to government regulations, and that destroyed Detroit. (This is the same genius who just a few weeks back made a video calling for vouchers for private schools!) Yes, apparently when DC gave hundreds of millions of dollars to Detroit, there were some pretty onerous strings attached. Black people didn’t want to abandon their buildings, turn them into dope dens and whore houses, and burn them down. They were just following the regulations from DC, and you know how crazy those white liberals are.

He then says that even though Detroit schools get more money per pupil than the average American public school, only 28% of them graduate, and “a Detroit student has a higher chance of ending up in prison than graduating high school.” Because, as any good PC neocon will tell you, a life of crime is something that just sorta happens when it comes to black people. They just “end up” in prison, somehow, by “chance.”

Next up is one of his favorite targets — the “oh so powerful teacher’s unions” who have “failed the students.” Yes, the teacher’s unions, and rules about student teacher ratios and opposition to “merit based pay” have turned Detroit into an urban jungle. And, one more time, like some sort of idiot savant, Crowder again blames the lack of vouchers for the nightmare that Detroit has become. Just two minutes ago he told us that government money and all the strings that are attached to it are bad for cities, but somehow government funding is just terrific for private schools. He’ll say anything, no matter how idiotic or contradictory, rather than face the fact that Detroit is the way it is because that’s how blacks live when left to their own devices.

The next part is a real doozy. In a thirteen minute video on the ruins of Detroit, Crowder spends over four minutes blaming the United Auto Workers union. It was their greed and the Obama bailouts that that played a huge role in the destruction of Detroit, according to him. This whole video is incredibly ignorant, but this part really takes the cake. Evidently Crowder thinks that all these abandoned and rotted out buildings that make Detroit look like a war zone just fell apart in the last couple years, after the automakers started talking about bankruptcy, and then got bailouts from DC. (Well, most of the buildings, that is. He’ll grant that a few collapsed in 1965-1970 under the white mayor, and the teacher’s unions have been going around torching some, too.)

As anyone with half a brain knows, these ruins have been around for a long, long time. Detroit was a hell hole even when the automakers were raking in money hand over fist selling SUVs in the 1990s, and for decades before that. And Steve, why don’t you head out to Camden, NJ or East St. Louis, IL, and do a report about those cities? Because they look a lot like Detroit, only smaller, and they’ve never been part of the auto industry. What’s up with that, Steve? And you know something else? Very few places in the world have vouchers or “school choice”, and yet students in those places still manage to thrive. Many of them are in Europe, others in Asia. How do these nations rank so well in education if it’s all about “school choice”, Steve? Come to think of it, aren’t you always going on about the massive socialism in Europe, and what a huge tax burden Europeans face? Well if government spending and onerous taxes destroyed Detroit, why doesn’t Sweden look like that? Or Norway? Or France? At the end of the video, you blame “government bureaucrats” for destroying what used to be considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Aren’t European nations famous for their massive bureaucracy? So tell us again why Europe doesn’t look like Detroit — they’ve been “leftist” and “liberal” from way before 1965.

Crowder is not only ignorant; he’s flat out dishonest. Unbelievably, outrageously dishonest. He babbles on about government bureaucrats and teacher’s unions turning Detroit into a wasteland, and spends an incredible third of his video trying to blame the UAW. And the entire time, he never even mentions the black riots of 1943 which led to the first great wave of whites fleeing the city, nor the black riots of 1967, which finally pushed the remaining whites over the edge, and were the final nail in the coffin of Detroit. Nor does he mention the Great Migration, which was the beginning of the end for Detroit. He can’t talk about these things, because he’s a good little PC neoconservative, who believes there are no real differences between whites and blacks. So he can’t even mention the elephant in the burned out living room — when Detroit was the richest city in America, and one of the grandest in the world, it was a white city, and when it became a black city, it turned into hell on earth. Just like East St. Louis. And Camden, NJ. And South Central Los Angeles. And Haiti, etc., etc.

Watch the video, and see for yourself just how spineless, brainless and irrelevant contemporary conservatism has become. The Republican Party and its mindless cheerleaders like Steven Crowder don’t have much of a future at all. Pretty much everything in America is coming down to race, and these cowards not only won’t talk about it, they make fools of themselves lying about it.

Good riddance.

If black kids fail their teachers should go to jail


-
Parents in Detroit are calling for their kids’ teachers to be imprisoned for their low test scores. And, frankly, it’s hard to argue with their logic if you believe that there are no differences in average intelligence between the races. We’ve tried everything we know how to do, no matter how costly or ridiculous, and the black/white achievement gap just keeps on chugging along like the Energizer bunny, even when adjusted for income, family status, etc. Everyone swears up and down that black kids are just as smart as white kids, but the average black kid graduates from high school 4 grade levels behind the average white kid. If we’re all equal, this can only be the result of some criminal mischief. Even “conservative” Newt Gingrich says that closing the Achievement Gap is THE civil rights issue of the 21st century. If that’s true, then why shouldn’t teachers go to jail if their black students do poorly in school, as it’s a violation of their civil rights?

Detroit parents want DPS teachers, officials jailed over low test scores

Bobb asking for 100,000 volunteer hours to help children with reading

Santiago Esparza / The Detroit News

Detroit — Impassioned parents demanded jail time for educators and district officials Saturday following the release of test scores that showed fourth- and eighth-graders had the worst math scores in the nation.

City students took the National Assessment of Educational Progress test this year, and 69 percent of fourth-graders scored below the basic level in math and 77 percent of eighth-graders scored below basic.

The Detroit scores on the progress test were the lowest in its 40-year history. The sample of students included 900 of Detroit’s 6,000 fourth-graders and 1,000 of the district’s 6,000 eighth-graders.

Sharlonda Buckman, CEO of the Detroit Parent Network, called for jailing and civil lawsuits against anyone in the city’s educational system that is not doing his or her share to help properly educate children.

“Somebody needs to go to jail,” she said in a tearful address to 500 parents gathered Saturday for the organization’s annual breakfast forum. “Somebody needs to pay for this. Somebody needs to go to jail, and it shouldn’t be the kids.”

Detroit Public Schools Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb told the crowd the test scores weren’t the result of children who were incompetent or parents who didn’t care. He blamed the scores on the district not doing its job.

“This is an abysmal failure,” Bobb said. “It is not the fault of our kids individually, and it is not the fault of our kids collectively. It is not the kids’ fault. It is the adults’ fault. It is a failure of leadership.”

The scores were so low that DPS parent Tonya Allen said she thinks students could have stayed home and done just as badly on the tests.

“No other city in the history of this test has done this bad,” said Allen, a founding member of the 7-year-old network. “They could have took this test in French and done just as bad.”

Celia Huerta, also a DPS parent, said the scores show how much work is needed in the schools.

“I am hoping and praying there will be investments in the schools, but I am not seeing it,” she said. “Our kids are smart, the problem is the way they are being taught.”

Bobb said he is going to announce a new reading initiative Monday in which he will be calling for 100,000 volunteer hours to help children with reading. Reading was one of the reasons cited for the low math scores.

This is what we get for 50 years of telling blacks that their problems are all white people’s fault.

And are there really 100,000 adults in Detroit who could serve as reading tutors?

Are there even 100,000 people in Detroit who are functionally literate?

The latest Great Black Hope for conservatives


Ah, politically correct conservatives…they may be dumb, but they’re persistent. They hate themselves for being white, and they hate even more the fact that their movement is entirely white, so they’re always desperately searching for a black hero to get behind to prove they’re not racist. A few months ago, it was Harry Alford. He was being called a hero and praised to the sky by conservatives, and they were expressing the hope that he would run for office.

Readers of this blog know that didn’t turn out too well.

But the true mark of a PC conservative is that they never, ever learn, and just keep coming back for more. The Tea Parties were about 99.999999% white affairs, but black buffoon Lloyd Marcus became the public face of the protests, simply because he’s black. Political jungle fever seems to be an incurable condition. Just as in Tom Wolfe’s great novel, Bonfire of the Vanities, the DA was always searching for The Great White Defendant to prove he wasn’t a racist, neocons and GOP cheerleaders are always looking for the The Great Colored Conservative to prove they’re not racists, no matter how many times they make fools of themselves.

Now they’ve got another one, and they’re once again wetting their pants with anticipation that this time, He Might Really Be The One. The latest Black Messiah whom PC conservatives think will part the blue sea, cause millions of black and brown people to start voting GOP, and lead them into the Promised Land is Allen West. A former Army Officer (can anyone say Affirmative Action?) who has had never held any sort of public office, West is now running for Congress. And before he’s even been elected or served a day in Congress, the PC conservatives are already hoping he’ll one day be president.

America’s Party

America’s Party

By Patrick J. Buchanan

For Democrats like Harry Reid, who called them evil-mongers,” and Nancy Pelosi, who called them “un-American,” the NBC News poll must have hit like a sucker punch at a Georgetown wine-and-cheese.

The Tea Party movement, those folks rallying against spending last spring and Obamacare in the summer town halls, are viewed more favorably than the Democratic Party.

Forty-one percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party movement, to 35 percent for Obama’s party. Only 24 percent view Tea Party activists unfavorably, while 45 percent hold a negative view of the Democrats.

While Tea Party types played a role in the GOP’s comeback—helping take down Gov. Jon Corzine in New Jersey and turning a John McCain deficit of 6 points in the Old Dominion into a 17-point victory for Bob McDonnell—the movement is no subsidiary of the GOP. For it played a major role in routing liberal Republican “Dede” Scozzafava in New York’s 23rd and came within a point of electing a third-party conservative.

As Congressional elections are 10 months off, though primaries begin in the spring, where do Tea Party types find the battles to keep them in fighting trim? Copenhagen may have provided an answer.

While Obama came home with a nothing-burger, Hillary stole the show. Without authorization of Congress, she committed the United States to lead a campaign to transfer, beginning in 2020, $100 billion a year “to address climate change needs in developing countries.” The fund would start at $10 billion and grow by 1,000 percent in a decade.

The $100-billion-a-year global fund sprang from the fertile mind of Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

By 2020, U.S. citizens, whose nation is careening toward default, will be borrowing tens of billions more every year from China, if Beijing is still willing to lend to us, so we can ship those tens of billions off to the sump holes of the Third World.

The arrogance of power here astonishes.

Not only does Hillary’s commitment represent a doubling of U.S. foreign aid, she declared at Copenhagen that climate change—known as global warming before a blizzard brought Obama winging home early—is “undeniable.”

Now, undeniably, there is climate change. But we call it spring, summer, fall and winter. As for global warming and cooling, that has been going on for millennia. Not so long ago, we exited what is known as the “little ice age.” Over the 20th century, the official rise in global temperature was seven-tenths of one degree Celsius.

People are wailing about the “hottest decade” in history. But who would have noticed if the Chicken Littles had not told us we are all burning up and we must act now to save the planet?

How do we save the planet? By giving them power and money.

Hillary’s hundred billion a year is just the tip of the iceberg, and this iceberg is not melting. We are at the beginning of the biggest con in history.

Earlier this month, the Environmental Protection Agency made an “endangerment finding” that carbon dioxide, the food of plants and trees, is a dangerous pollutant. Under the Clean Air Act of 1970, this gives EPA power to shut down the U.S. economy, though EPA head Lisa Jackson says the ruling will apply only to 10,000 utilities, refineries and large manufacturers that emit more than 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide every year.

Congress has done nothing to reverse this usurpation of power.

Strict enforcement of this finding would make America a pasture and guarantee China’s future as the first industrial power, the factory for mankind. What is the purpose of this preposterous EPA finding?

It is the EPA nightstick to club into line U.S. companies that are fighting the Gore-Kerry-Obama cap-and-trade bill stalled in the Senate, which represents another huge transfer of wealth and power from the private sector to Beltway bureaucrats.

What the Obamaites are saying to industrial America is: Back off your opposition to cap-and-trade, or the EPA shuts you down.

The Tea Party irregulars have it in their power to stop the New World Order crowd cold. All they need do is stop cap-and-trade in the Senate for 10 months, until November, and block Hillary’s $100 billion fund from ever seeing the light of day.

If the Tea Party activists can hold the line, they can, next fall, send Congress a message it will not soon forget about getting off this Acela to globalism and getting back to putting America first.

In Europe, democracy is dead. French and Dutch voted to kill the EU constitution. The EU rechristened it the Lisbon Treaty. The Irish voted no. They were forced to vote again. The British detest it, but Gordon Brown has denied them a vote.

The West is disappearing into a New World Order, and against globalism, the Tea Party folks may represent our last best hope.

Americans Are Hell-Bent on Tyranny

Americans Are Hell-Bent on Tyranny

By Paul Craig Roberts

Obama’s dwindling band of true believers has taken heart that their man has finally delivered on one of his many promises—the closing of the Guantanamo prison. But the prison is not being closed. It is being moved to Illinois, if the Republicans permit.

In truth, Obama has handed his supporters another defeat. Closing Guantanamo meant ceasing to hold people in violation of our legal principles of habeas corpus and due process and ceasing to torture them in violation of US and international laws.

All Obama would be doing would be moving 100 people, against whom the US government is unable to bring a case, from the prison in Guantanamo to a prison in Thomson, Illinois.

Are the residents of Thomson despondent that the US government has chosen their town as the site on which to continue its blatant violation of US legal principles? No, the residents are happy. It means jobs.

The hapless prisoners had a better chance of obtaining release from Guantanamo. Now the prisoners are up against two US senators, a US representative, a mayor, and a state governor who have a vested interest in the prisoners’ permanent detention in order to protect the new prison jobs in the hamlet devastated by unemployment.

Neither the public nor the media have ever shown any interest in how the detainees came to be incarcerated. Most of the detainees were unprotected people who were captured by Afghan war lords and sold to the Americans as “terrorists” in order to collect a proffered bounty. It was enough for the public and the media that the Defense Secretary at the time, Donald Rumsfeld, declared the Guantanamo detainees to be the “780 most dangerous people on earth.”

The vast majority have been released after years of abuse. The 100 who are slated to be removed to Illinois have apparently been so badly abused that the US government is afraid to release them because of the testimony the prisoners could give to human rights organizations and foreign media about their mistreatment.

Our British allies are showing more moral conscience than Americans are able to muster. Former PM Tony Blair, who provided cover for President Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq, is being damned for his crimes by UK officialdom testifying before the Chilcot Inquiry.

The London Times on December 14 summed up the case against Blair in a headline: “Intoxicated by Power, Blair Tricked Us Into War.” Two days later the British First Post declared: “War Crime Case Against Tony Blair Now Rock-solid.” In an unguarded moment Blair let it slip that he favored a conspiracy for war regardless of the validity of the excuse [weapons of mass destruction] used to justify the invasion.

The movement to bring Blair to trial as a war criminal is gathering steam. Writing in the First Post Neil Clark reported: “There is widespread contempt for a man [Blair] who has made millions [his reward from the Bush regime] while Iraqis die in their hundreds of thousands due to the havoc unleashed by the illegal invasion, and who, with breathtaking arrogance, seems to regard himself as above the rules of international law.” Clark notes that the West’s practice of shipping Serbian and African leaders off to the War Crimes Tribunal, while exempting itself, is wearing thin.

In the US, of course, there is no such attempt to hold to account Bush, Cheney, Condi Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and the large number of war criminals that comprised the Bush Regime. Indeed, Obama, whom Republicans love to hate, has gone out of his way to protect the Bush cohort from being held accountable.

Here in Great Moral America we only hold accountable celebrities and politicians for their sexual indiscretions. Tiger Woods is paying a bigger price for his girlfriends than Bush or Cheney will ever pay for the deaths and ruined lives of millions of people. The consulting company, Accenture Plc, which based its marketing program on Tiger Woods, has removed Woods from its Web site. Gillette announced that the company is dropping Woods from its print and broadcast ads. AT&T says it is re-evaluating the company’s relationship with Woods.

Apparently, Americans regard sexual infidelity as far more serious than invading countries on the basis of false charges and deception, invasions that have caused the deaths and displacement of millions of innocent people. Remember, the House impeached President Clinton not for his war crimes in Serbia, but for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Americans are more upset by Tiger Woods’ sexual affairs than they are by the Bush and Obama administrations’ destruction of US civil liberty. Americans don’t seem to mind that “their” government for the last 8 years has resorted to the detention practices of 1,000 years ago—simply grab a person and throw him into a dungeon forever without bringing charges and obtaining a conviction.

According to polls, Americans support torture, a violation of both US and international law, and Americans don’t mind that their government violates the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and spies on them without obtaining warrants from a court. Apparently, the brave citizens of the “sole remaining superpower” are so afraid of terrorists that they are content to give up liberty for safety, an impossible feat.

With stunning insouciance, Americans have given up the rule of law that protected their liberty. The silence of law schools and bar associations indicates that the age of liberty has passed. In short, the American people support tyranny. And that’s where they are headed.

Liberals Are Mentally Ill

Liberals Are Mentally Ill

The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness
by Lyle H. Rossiter Jr. M.D.

Just when liberal-leftists thought it was finally Their Time to lead center-right America, kicking and screaming, into a stifling socialist Utopia, a veteran and acclaimed forensic psychiatrist is making a powerful case that the hope-and-change ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

For more than 40 years, Dr. Lyle Rossiter has diagnosed and treated over 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases, both state and federal, as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist retained by numerous public offices, courts and private attorneys. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.

Rossiter explains with great clarity why the kind of liberalism being displayed by Barack Hussein Obama and his Jewish cohorts can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Rossiter. “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.

“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do.

“And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which overregulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state..as liberals do.”

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:

*Creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;

*Satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;

*Augmenting primitive feelings of envy;

*Rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says.

“When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains, and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

The Virus
Author: Bushite Fury

How in the hell had things gone so bad so quickly, Aaron Winters thought as he listened to the distant gunfire and watched the smoke rising only a few blocks away. Their own neighborhood was silent, he was almost the only person in the entire block, everyone else had left the previous evening and that morning.

Aaron was a former programmer and now a website designer, age 35, happily married with a Wife and two children. 5 years ago they’d finally been able to put a deposit down on their house in a good area, she’d gotten an office job and he worked largely from home, occasionally traveling to other states on contract work. Life was good and looking brighter all the time, until the economic downturn began after the Middle East wars ended. Now, their house was worth cents in the dollar, their savings were almost gone, unemployment was rife.

Crime was the only growth industry.

He’d just returned from shopping before the nightly shooting started. As usual the emergency services didn’t respond, the only time they were seen these days was when they cleared the Bodies and Car wrecks from the roads each morning. They never entered the burned buildings; they would have been shot down if they had. After 3pm they disappeared completely and weren’t seen again until after dawn the next day. You could forget about receiving help from them if you needed it, you were on your own, they only grudgingly answered calls, and the answer was invariably “we’re too busy to attend”.

Several months before, he’d gotten his wife Barbara and two Children, Cassandra and William, out of the area to a safe place in the Country, where the Predators never went. He’d only returned to their house to take a few remaining mementos of their previous lives and shop for needed items, constantly on the watch for people hanging around traffic lights, stop signs and doorways whenever he did so.

The ultimate purpose of a Government was to protect its people from Invasion and Attack, and the US Government was deliberately allowing both, he thought as he sat on the balcony of their house for the last time. But in a few hours, all going well, things were going to abruptly change…

The US as it was known was winding down, deluged in a morass of economic and criminal decay, subtly dying a little more each day. The population had been slowly introduced to the changes which were destroying them, exactly like the proverbial Frog in hot water, unaware as the temperature slowly rose around it until it was too late. The same thing had happened all around the World but the population had by and large been inured to the changes and refused to take notice as one nation after another was destroyed, either from within or by invasion as necessary. Large parts of all cities and most suburbs had become absolute no-go areas law abiding citizens steered clear of. Taxes had risen sharply and pushed businesses under, all to pay for foreign wars. In response, President Bush had instituted economic ‘reforms’ consisting of borrowing like never before, which the country and the entire world were now paying for.

-Snip

www.niggermania.com is a website devoted to making fun of, well, niggers: Blacks that have completely failed to become part of greater society except as a poor, criminal burden. The moderators of niggermania take the position that they are not hateful, because they deem niggers less than human and regard them as wild animals, unable to live up to “human” standards. They wonder aloud why society tolerates them, albeit humorously.

The Virus is a free online novella written by “Bushite Fury”. It’s about Aaron Winters, a White Man and former computer programmer angry at the destruction of American values at the hands of the Bush government and political correctness, the former because Bush (assuming it’s George W.) has invaded Syria and made foreign relations even worse, and the latter for allowing gangs of Blacks to terrorize the cities.

With the government taking over and fully monitoring all of the internet and other communications and the media complicit in censoring all “intolerant” news, Winters knows it’s only a matter of time before there’s no chance for any kind of resistance, especially with gangs on the edge of taking over his once-nice neighborhood. He and his neighbors hatch plans to escape.

Winters packs up his family and builds a hidden cabin in a national park, where he and his wife and two small children exercise, read and above all, learn to survive, hunting, fishing, tracking, etc. The prose during these parts goes down like flat soda, but adequately explains what would be a tremendously difficult process in a believable way. Dialogue and other elements of storytelling are raw and unpolished.

The virus of the title refers not only to the decay of society by unseen (or unacknowledged) forces but a computer virus that Winters builds in secret to unleash on the government as revenge.

Author Fury is at his best when explaining the destructive results of America turning its back on its history and allowing segments of the population to literally get away with murder in the name of “tolerance”. The tragedy of our times is that questioning the forces overtly and covertly destroying America are found in sophomoric yet honest efforts like this, instead of being front page news and debated everywhere from park benches to the halls of Congress.

Curiously (or not) the word ‘nigger’ is nowhere to be found in the text of The Virus, nor is any direct mention made of the “real” enemy, The Jews. Fury also prefers the pagan religions to Christianity, an odd choice.


An eleven-year-old prodigy peers into the future, looking at the condition of racial and ethnic polarization at mid-century

2048

An eleven-year-old prodigy peers into the future, looking at the condition of racial and ethnic polarization at mid-century. From the single assumption that earning ability is distributed differently among racial and ethnic groups, Prodigy develops a formalism to describe intergroup polarization. From this analysis a pair of limiting laws emerge: Prodigy’s Laws I and II.


Mentor. Welcome Prodigy. It’s good to see you again. Please come in. Have a cookie and tell me what you’ve been doing.

Prodigy. Thank you, Mentor. I have been toying with the idea of becoming a doomsayer. I believe I could make a living that way and support my researches.

Mentor. Something like Einstein in the patent office?

Prodigy. Yes, but more lucrative.

Mentor. What put you on to this?

Prodigy. While visiting Aunt Patricia, I read the 1968 best seller, The Population Bomb. In it, Paul Ehrlich predicted the starvation of 65 million Americans between 1980 and 1989. He subsequently won a $345,000 MacArthur “genius” award, and more recently a $250,000 prize from the Heinz Foundation for his writings on population and nuclear war. With more than a few IQ points on Ehrlich, I should be able to do at least that well. Of course, I would want my predictions to be correct.

Mentor. Do you have anything specific in mind?

Prodigy. Well yes. In a private communication, Jim Boyd expressed some concern about demographic trends in the US. He pointed out that by mid-century the non-Hispanic white population will have dropped to near 50 percent with Latinos and (to a lesser extent) Asians taking up the slack. Jim suggests, that such a population mix might be destabilizing. High-IQ, high-paying jobs in law, medicine and engineering, for example, would be concentrated among whites and Asians, as now. However, blacks and Latinos with larger combined numbers would have destabilizing political clout.

Mentor. Somehow that doesn’t seem pessimistic enough to merit a MacArthur or Heinz award. Bill Joy, writing in the April edition of Wired, says that self-replicating technology could wipe out humanity in a few decades. Now that’s doomsaying!

Prodigy. Let me show you some mid-century population projections anyway.


Year Hispanics Non-Hispanic
Whites Blacks Amer. Indians etc. Asians
1999 11.49% 71.85% 12.14% 0.74% 3.76%
2048 23.86% 52.32% 13.62% 0.84% 9.37%

Mentor. What happened to 2050? Last I looked you had ten fingers.

Prodigy. Because Asians, including many Chinese, are projected to make impressive population gains, I thought it prudent to choose a year of the dragon. According to the projection, Latinos will grow to about 24 percent of the population. Combined with blacks, they will be pushing 40 percent. That represents a lot of clout for traditional have-not groups.

Mentor. Permit me a brief digression. Look at the points on this graph.

Can you predict where the next point will fall?

Prodigy. It might help it you told me what the points represent?

Mentor. They represent the charge density, measured by x-ray scattering, along a line through a crystal.

Prodigy. Knowing you, Mentor, I smell a rat. The points fall more or less on a line, so you expect me to place a point that extends it, like this.

However, the microscopic properties of a crystal are periodic, so without more information I will respectfully decline to place the point.

Mentor. Good! Here are the same points, including the new one you declined to add, superimposed upon a plot of the experimental charge density.

Prodigy. Ha! The rat is exposed. Curiously, the points look squiggly now. Did you move them?

Mentor. No, it’s an optical illusion that we can explore another time. For now, what can you say about extrapolation?

Prodigy. People are eager to extrapolate. I had that impulse just a moment ago, but I exercised restraint. We love to look at small regions in space or time and extrapolate our observations beyond their range of validity. Knowing the local structure about a point in a crystal, we can predict the structure many atoms or molecules away. The crystal’s periodicity guides us. Without that model, extrapolation would be a dangerous enterprise. I think it was you, Mentor, who said that extrapolation is a reflection of the ego, and the bigger the ego the bolder the claim.

Mentor. Even models may not be enough. Some have so many parameters to plug in, that they become virtually useless. During the Gulf War in 1991, the TV personality and astronomer, Carl Sagan, predicted that burning oil wells in Kuwait would blacken the sky causing the monsoons to fail and bring about mass starvation in southern Asia. He did a worst-case calculation and passed it off as reasonable. Global warming “experts” do much the same thing now.

Prodigy. Where do you stand on global warming?

Mentor. I remain agnostic. The issue has been so politicized that it is near-impossible to get a balanced picture. My cursory examination of the technical literature indicates that there is plenty of credible dissent. Let’s keep that topic open for future discussion.

Prodigy. If I go into the futurist business, I promise to be circumspect.

Mentor. Well then let’s look at your population estimates. Where did they come from?

Prodigy. Demographers at the Census Bureau produced them. Their predictions, which extend to 2100, can be found on the Census Bureau website.

Mentor. Talk about ego. A change in the world health profile, a small war or two, political realignments, or any of countless unforeseen events could render a hundred year prediction useless. It’s a waste of taxpayer money.

Prodigy. I should do a calculation to see if such waste can affect my inheritance.

Mentor. Perhaps another time. Tell me, what do the demographers see for the total US population at the end of the century?

Prodigy. Close to 600 million.

Mentor. Do you see that as a problem?

Prodigy. Not even close. We can comfortably sustain many times that number. The problem I see has not so much to do with quantity as with quality.

Mentor. Well then, Prodigy, what specifically have you in mind for your venture into futurism?

Prodigy. I want to keep focused on Jim Boyd’s concerns. When economic polarization develops along racial and color lines, it becomes singularly conspicuous and volatile. Affirmative action can ameliorate up to a point, but it also worsens tensions by breeding resentment.

Mentor. Might it not help to develop a measure of polarization that could be expressed as a function of the population mix?

Prodigy. I have developed such a function, which I will unveil shortly. But first allow me a few observations. Economic polarization is usually defined in terms of income or asset differences between haves and havenots. In the US the haves are whites and Asians; the havenots are blacks and browns. Unlike comparing rich with poor, not all whites and Asians do well and not all blacks and browns do poorly. Consequently, I decided to look at these two groups in terms of their statistical properties.

Members of racial and ethnic groups, irrespective of individual economic success, very much identify with others of their tribe. They are bonded by primal survival instincts. It is human nature. When blacks and browns look through their “group eyes,” they see whites and Asians as belonging to advantaged tribes. Racial and ethnic self-identification creates resentment even among successful individuals within the group. Success of other groups is seen as inherently unfair, because havenots operate from an equal-outcome perspective. They do not acknowledge inherent group differences, let alone their economic consequences. Alternatively, whites and Asians see jobs obtained by less qualified minorities as unfair, because haves operate from a meritocratic perspective. This difference in perception, stemming from divergent abilities, is at the root of intergroup resentment.

Mentor. Can policies be enacted to reduce intergroup antipathy?

Prodigy. Not the kind I speak of. What I describe is fundamental polarization, arising from inherent group differences. Government sponsored policies like affirmative action can act in behalf of blacks and browns. Employment measures can steer minorities into public sector jobs, creating a minority middle-class. Pressure on the private sector can achieve much the same effect. But none of this gets at the irreducible minimum intergroup resentment.

Resentment is a two-way street. It exists both at the top and bottom. For a given racial/ethnic mix, government or private-sector intervention merely shifts resentment from one group to another. It is as if there were a conservation of resentment principle operating. In a meritocratic culture all the resentment is from the bottom. Chopping away at the meritocratic ideal by introducing equal-outcome components like affirmative action reduces resentment in one group, shifting it to another.

Mentor. Can the level of ill feeling increase beyond the irreducible minimum?

Prodigy. Absolutely. Race hustlers make a living by playing upon these antagonisms. I consider here, however, only the primary antipathy and its offshoot polarization.

To study the effect of racial and ethnic composition on social discord, I developed a measure of intergroup polarization that is independent of government policy. Income and asset differences are inappropriate measures, because they are very much influenced by policies such as affirmative action. My measure of polarization is invariant to political perturbations, being instead intrinsic to the nature of the groups and their relative numbers. In fact, I call it the intrinsic polarization function. It describes the irreducible minimum intergroup polarization.

On the human evolutionary scale, 50 or 100 years mean very little. Some human attributes change so slowly, that on this scale we may regard them as constant. Group-cognitive differences are among them. Having taken so long to shape, they will likely exist 50 years hence in the same form we observe now. Barring widespread intergroup breeding, these differences will persist. Asians and whites will remain as a cognitive elite, with blacks and browns lagging behind by about one standard deviation. Other group properties will likewise resist change. These simple facts allow me to frame the question of polarization in more concrete terms. And, being cautious by nature, I will make no extravagant claims. My foray into futurism will be more like a “what-if” game.

Mentor. And of course you will not contradict any known facts.

Prodigy. Of course. I propose a very simple model based on group-differential ability to earn. For this purpose, the US may be modeled as a two-group nation, blacks and browns in one group, Asians and whites in the other. The groups differ in a property we might call, earning ability. It is distributed differently within each group, the black/brown distribution lagging behind that of whites and Asians.

Mentor. You mentioned time-invariant cognitive differences. Is there a relationship between earning ability and IQ?

Prodigy. We know the two are strongly correlated. In fact, IQ is the biggest single correlate of income. That, however, is not to say that earning ability and IQ distributions are identical. They are not. Athletes and dentists, for example, have high-earning potential, yet at the same time can be dumb as rocks. However, barring profound changes in Western values, earning-ability gaps should remain fairly constant.

Though the distributions of earning ability and IQ differ, the degree of correlation suggests they share some common elements. Intergroup gaps in both distributions should be similar. We know the IQ gap between blacks/browns and whites/Asians is about one standard deviation. Consequently, I assume throughout a one standard deviation earning-ability gap. Ultimately, however, the gap must be regarded as an adjustable parameter, and may be reset when evidence warrants.

Mentor. You mentioned an intrinsic polarization function. Tell me about it.

Prodigy. Within the context of the two-group model, I look at the proportion of blacks and browns in the top-earning quintile (more generally, n-tile). I brought some posters to help me explain. Poster 1 shows a utopian equal-outcome ideal in which the black/brown fraction of the top-income quintile equals the black/brown fraction in the workforce. In Utopia, earning-ability gaps do not exist.

Poster 2 includes also the fraction of blacks and browns in the top-earning quintile that would obtain in a meritocracy, that is, when the quintile is filled in rank order of earning ability. Because of the earning ability gap, the meritocratic top-quintile fraction of blacks and browns, FB, is always less than the corresponding utopian fraction, fB. (See Poster 5 for how to calculate FB.)


I define the intrinsic polarization function, p as the difference between the utopian and meritocratic curves. That is, p = fBFB. The intrinsic polarization function depends only on a population’s racial/ethnic makeup. It arises from deep-rooted group differences and has nothing to do with government or private-sector policy. Poster 3 shows how the function varies with the population mix.


At the population extremes (no blacks/browns and all blacks/browns) the polarization function vanishes. Consequently, there must be a racial/ethnic mix where the difference reaches a maximum. This occurs when the workforce is about 60 percent black/brown. That is the most volatile mix. Further increases in black/brown percentages will see a decrease in polarization.

Mentor. Where are we presently on your curves?

Prodigy. In Poster 4, the 1999 black/brown workforce fraction (about 23 percent) is marked. The 1999 population mix generated significant polarization, the intrinsic polarization function reaching 53 percent of its maximum value.


Circumstances degenerate as the workforce becomes more black and brown. The Census Bureau forecast of a 38 percent black-brown workforce in 2048 is also marked on Poster 4. At that mix, the intrinsic polarization function will have increased to more than 80 percent of its maximum value, a dangerous condition. The level of resentment will be way up. As Jim Boyd suggests, that combination of polarization and political muscle could produce destabilizing unrest.

Mentor. How will the resentment be distributed between the two groups?

Prodigy. My model cannot say. That would depend in large measure upon the existence and vitality of policies promoting concepts like affirmative action, “diversity,” “multiculturalism,” and others I can’t even begin to imagine.

Mentor. Though your analysis is well constructed, Prodigy, your conclusions are not quite as dramatic as the starvation of 65 million Americans in a decade.

Prodigy. That’s the price of circumspection. OK, so I won’t get a MacArthur Award. Actually, my long-term outlook is fairly optimistic. If we can hold on long enough, the world will create so much wealth that economic polarization will become a moot issue. The problem is one of time scale. That is, how long is “long enough?” Meanwhile, let me show you how I evaluated the top-quintile earned fraction, FB, and the intrinsic polarization function, p. Please look at Poster 5.


POSTER 5. CALCULATION OF FB, THE EARNED FRACTION OF BLACKS/BROWNS IN THE TOP QUINTILE, AND p, THE INTRINSIC POLARIZATION FUNCTION.

Suppose a population, N, consists of two groups, the black/brown numbering NB and the white/Asian numbering NW. We wish to fill N/n slots in rank order on some property, x, where 1 < n < N. Let P(x) be the probability density of x in the white/Asian group. Let the probability density of x in the black/brown group be P(x + Δ). That is, the two distributions differ by a translation, Δ, along the x axis. The quantity, Δ, is the difference between the group means. Then, the following relation is satisfied (see Women and Minorities in Science).

Members of the population possessing a value of the property greater than or equal to λ make the cutoff and fill one of the slots. The first term on the left side (5.1) is the number of whites/Asians who fill slots; the second term is the corresponding number of blacks/browns.

Dividing through by N/n, the number of slots in the top n-tile, we get

In (5.2) we have replaced NB/N with fB, the fraction of the general population that is black/brown. The value of λ is determined in practice by numerical solution of (5.2).

The second term on the left side of (5.2) is the earned fraction of blacks/browns in the top n-tile, i.e., FB. The intrinsic polarization function, p = fBFB, is then given by

The functions FB and p were evaluated throughout for Δ = 1 and n = 5, i.e., for the top quintile.


Mentor. Straightforward enough. Is there more?

Prodigy. The intrinsic polarization function and earned fraction of blacks/browns have interesting limiting properties, which I have formulated into a pair of limiting laws. I call them Prodigy’s Laws.

Mentor. Not surprising.

Prodigy. The laws provide considerable simplification in low brown/black populations. They would apply very well in, say, the UK.

Please look at Posters 6 and 7.



As you see, Mentor, both the earned fraction, FB, and the intrinsic polarization function, p, approach asymptotes in the low black/brown population region. Their limiting behavior forms the basis of Prodigy’s laws. I develop them in Poster 8.



POSTER 8

Prodigy’s Laws:

I. If the top n-tile of the combined population of two sub-populations, A and B, is filled in rank order on some property, x, then, in the limit of a small B population, the (earned) fraction, FB, of the top n-tile filled by B’s becomes proportional to the fraction of B’s in the general population. That is, FB CnfB. The proportionality constant, Cn, Prodigy’s constant, is given by , where λn is the solution of . The quantity, P(x), is the distribution function of property x for group A. The distribution function for group B is P(x + Δ).

II. In the limit of a small B population, the polarization function, p = fBFB, becomes proportional to the fraction of B’s in the general population. That is, p (1 – Cn)fB.

Prodigy’s Law I can be obtained by expanding FB (fB ) about zero and dropping quadratic and higher terms,

The quantity FB(0) vanishes, i.e., when the B population is zero, no B can fill a slot. The fraction of B’s who fill the N/n top n-tile slots is given by,

where λ(fB) is the smallest value of x that earns a slot in the n-tile. From (8.2) we can find FB (fB):

To find FB(0), we note that the derivative in (8.3) expands to -P(λ+Δ))(dλ/dfB), both factors of which remain finite as fB0. Thus, the second term inside the brackets vanishes in the limit of fB0. In this limit, the first term in brackets goes to , where λn is the value of λ in an all-A population competing for slots in the top n-tile. That value of λ satisfies the relation: , which also provides a means to compute λn. Thus, FB(0) is given by

and Prodigy’s Law, F(fB) = CnfB, is established. Prodigy’s constant, Cn, is also seen to be F’ (0) or . Values of Cn can be computed from this expression.A few values of Prodigy’s constant are tabulated below, for the case when P(x) is Gaussian and Δ = 1.

n Cn
5 0.16383
10 0.11258
20 0.081726

Prodigy’s Law II follows directly, since p = fBFB (1 – Cn)fB.


Mentor. Does Prodigy’s constant have any significance?

Prodigy. “Significance” is a bit strong, Mentor. Will you settle for “interpretation?” Prodigy’s constant is the earned top n-tile fraction of blacks and browns in a hypothetical all black/brown population that obeys Prodigy’s Law I over the entire range of population mixes.

Mentor. Yes, I do think “interpretation” is more appropriate. Have you considered the tendency of minorities to cluster geographically in cities?

Prodigy. I am looking into that. Oops, please excuse me, I am late for an appointment with Aunt Patricia. She promised to lend me a copy of Lowell Ponte’s “The Cooling.”

Mentor. I look forward to our next meeting.

Prodigy. Me too. Thanks for the lesson and the cookies.

Political movements have victims, and the cause of diversity is no exception. Whites, Asians and males are all casualties of the diversicrat, but his most deplorable incivility makes victims of the hapless.  If anyone should deny the politicization of mental retardation, let him confront the data presented herein.


The life of a diversicrat is disagreeable. He is surrounded by irritants. Of them, he finds none more unsettling than race, particularly racial differences. He confronts them daily, on the athletic field, in the classroom, in the workplace and on the street. Most prickly are IQ differences. Intelligence, after all, is the hallmark of our species. The diversicrat twists and strains to explain IQ gaps away, abandoning parsimony for convolution. But he does not stop with explication. He is an ideological crusader. And like most crusades, this one has victims. Sadly, they include the ill-starred and hapless mentally retarded. Their wretched malady is secondary to the fact that they are asymmetrically black.

Nature-nurture issues do not concern us here. We ask how, not why. We accept racial IQ incongruities as facts, noting only that efforts to erase them have failed. The average IQ of East Asians (Chinese, Japanese and Koreans) is about 1/3 standard deviation (SD) or about 5 IQ points higher than that of Europeans. Ashkenazic Jews score higher still. Their mean IQ is about 15 IQ points above that of non-Hispanic whites. In the US, the African American with a mean score of 85 is at the bottom of the cognitive deck. He thus finds himself disproportionately represented among the ranks of the retarded. All this is anathema to the diversicrat.

The black-white IQ gap has been studied and analyzed for more than 80 years. It has outlived sweeping attitude changes, from extreme anti-black discrimination to bias against whites, Asians and males. The billion-dollar Head Start budget has not dented it. Though IQ scores have been rising worldwide for decades (the Flynn effect) the cognitive distance between blacks and whites has remained remarkably constant. In fact, the 1 SD black-white IQ gap is as close to a fundamental sociological constant as we come.

When the IQ of non-Hispanic whites is normalized to a mean of 100 and SD of 15, the African American mean falls at about 85 with an SD of about 13.5. The black IQ distribution both lags behind and is narrower than the white. The small difference in width manifests itself significantly at the bell curve extremes, reducing both the numbers of retarded and exceptional blacks.

Figure 1 shows IQ distribution curves for African Americans and non-Hispanic whites. The areas under the curves are normalized to unity, so that the narrower black distribution appears taller. Two standard deviations from each side of the white mean mark IQ boundaries for retardation and giftedness. Outside these borders, in the shaded regions, are the cognitive extremes. There, the areas under the curves represent the fractions of each group who meet IQ criteria for retardation or giftedness. (Most striking is the tiny black representation in the gifted region.) The ratio of areas shows blacks to be 6.1 times more likely than whites to fall below the boundary for retardation, and 53 times less likely to be gifted. So profound are the group differences that they are apparent to the man in the street, who observes a profusion of African Americans at the bottom of the economic and educational ladders, and a scarcity at the top.


Bell Curve Extremes
At the left tail of the IQ distribution we find the mentally deficient. They mostly are unable to cope with the challenges of life. As children, they require specialized educational services. When the bell curve is politicized these poor souls suffer. We will see how the diversicrat, unable to tolerate racial differences in retardation rates, has worked a miracle cure.

The diversicrat’s goal of eliminating racial disparities extends to both tails of the bell curve. On the right he has inflicted less damage. After all, it is more difficult to harm the gifted than the backward. Nevertheless, racial imbalance in programs for gifted and talented students catch his eye. He pressures local school districts to diversify them. Florida’s response is typical. When not enough “disadvantaged minorities” show up in programs for exceptional students, Florida kicks in with Plan B (no kidding — that is what they call it). Plan B makes use of additional criteria such as “leadership potential,” “performance evaluation” and “statements of need.” It is hard to get worked up about gifted and near gifted children. We know in the long run they will turn out well. We focus instead on the left tail of the bell curve where the real damage occurs.


Lourdes Comes to Washington
The diversicrat has a powerful ally in the US Government. Through its Office for Civil Rights (OCR) the Department of Education demands that mentally retarded children be represented in proportion to the racial makeup of the school. OCR regards racial imbalance as discrimination, and thus illegal. Eliminating disparities of race among the ranks of the mentally retarded is among the OCR’s highest priorities. The curves of Figure 1 demonstrate just how difficult OCR’s task is.

The education and psychology communities have responded to OCR pressure by reclassifying mentally retarded children — bureaucracy’s version of a cure. Efforts of the Department of Education have reduced the number of mentally retarded children in public schools from approximately 2.2 percent to less than 1.3 percent. The process took less than two decades. Millions of children of all races have been reclassified. They no longer receive appropriate educational services specifically earmarked for the retarded. Jane Burnette in ERIC Digest #E566 describes the curative secret. “Reducing overrepresentation is a matter of creating a successful school environment for all students and accurately distinguishing disabilities from cultural differences.” Figure 2 shows graphically how a dose of Government medicine rendered almost half the country’s retarded children whole again.


A Brief History of Mental Retardation
As old as man himself, mental retardation defied precise definition until the development of psychometric tools. An early (1910) scheme introduced by the American Association on Mental Deficiency (AAMD) identified levels of retardation by comparing the afflicted at maturity to children at various levels of development. Idiots functioned as 2 year olds, imbeciles between 2 and 7 years, and morons between 7 and 12 years. These terms are now obsolete and considered offensive.

Psychologists recognized fairly early that cognitive deficiency alone does not satisfactorily characterize mental retardation. People with comparably low cognitive capacity often differ in their ability to adapt to the challenges of daily life. A three-part definition of mental retardation evolved to address this issue. It includes childhood onset, cognitive deficiency, and inadequate adaptive behavior. Though this definition preceded the diversicrat, he was quick to use it to his advantage.

With the development of the IQ test by Alfred Binet in 1905, it became possible to quantify intellectual shortcomings. The test dramatically altered methods of diagnosis and classification, and soon became the principal tool for diagnosing mental retardation. By mid-century two of the three criteria for defining mental retardation, cognitive deficiency and age of onset, could be accurately determined, but the assessment of adaptive behavior relied largely on subjective evaluation. Today, the assessment of adaptive behavior still remains fuzzy enough for the diversicrat to work his miracles.

In 1959, AAMD set the IQ threshold for mental retardation at < 85. The civil rights movement of the next decade forced psychologists to rethink this boundary, because half the African American population fell below it. In 1973, responding to this concern, AAMD (by then AAMR) changed the threshold for retardation from IQ < 85 to IQ < 70. The boundary moved south by one standard deviation! The proportion of blacks below the threshold instantly dropped from about 50 percent to 12 percent. Subsequent refinements made it still more difficult to meet the criteria for retardation.

When Binet in 1905 produced the first IQ test, it promised to revolutionize the diagnosis and treatment of mental retardation. A half century later it came under attack for reasons Binet could not have imagined. Could any of the pioneer psychometricians have foreseen Larry P. v. Riles (1979), a California class-action suit that focused on IQ testing of young black children? The court held that IQ tests were not valid for African Americans. It banned California from using the tests for placing black students in classes for the “educable mentally retarded” or equivalent categories on the grounds that the tests were biased. After a series of appeals, the district court ruled that no special education related purposes exist for which IQ tests could be administered to black pupils. Though only a California ruling, the case began a political assault on standardized testing that has spread beyond the IQ test to college entrance exams, promotional exams and more.


A Case History of Government Intervention
In 1996, The Office for Civil Rights placed 16 school districts nationwide under review for potential discrimination. The districts were charged with violating the civil rights of minorities, especially African Americans, because blacks were found to be overrepresented in special education programs, especially those for the mentally retarded. Five of the 16 districts were in Maryland. Ironically, Maryland is a very liberal state very much in tune with the goals of the Civil Rights Office. Maryland is also almost 30 percent black. The offending districts included Baltimore, Howard, Harford, Montgomery and Prince Georges counties.

OCR detectives uncovered “discrimination” by looking at school records. The offending data appear in Table 1. The irritant is in the last column. Black children were classified as retarded at 1.5 to 2.2 times the rate of whites. OCR ordered the counties to find a “remedy.”

Table 1. Retardation rates in the five Maryland counties cited by the Office for Civil Rights. OCR requires retardation rates to be independent of race.

Current technical literature still reports mental retardation rates at 2 to 3 percent of the general population The incidence of mental retardation in Maryland’s offending counties is significantly lower than that. The districts had reduced the number of mentally retarded children even before they were cited. They failed, however, to selectively reduce retardation rates.

Irrespective of race, we note significant variation in the rate of retardation from county to county. With populations this big, uniform criteria should produce uniform retardation rates. Harford County, a semi-rural mostly white county, reports about 3 times the rate of retardation as the more cosmopolitan Montgomery County and the predominantly black Prince Georges County. A child in mostly white Baltimore County is about twice as likely to be retarded as his peer in the also mostly white Howard County. These discrepancies were less troublesome to the Department of Education than racial issues.


Ideal Rates of Retardation

Because the data reveal both racial and nonracial disparities, we decided to compare them with a district that closely followed AAMR guidelines. Knowing of no such district, we constructed a hypothetical one — Reference County, USA.

Nationally, about 12 percent of African Americans and 2 percent of non-Hispanic whites have IQs < 70. Not all these people, however, are mentally retarded. Prince Georges County, for example, identified 0.448 percent of its black students and 0.290 percent of its white students as retarded, both numbers well below the number with IQ < 70. A simple calculation shows that only 4 percent of  black children and 15 percent of the white children with IQ < 70 were found to have sufficient adaptive behavior deficits to warrant classifying them retarded. On the surface it appears that PG County discriminated against whites, since white children were found to have adaptive behavior deficits at almost four times the rate of blacks. That, however, is not the case.

Among blacks and whites with comparable cognitive deficits, blacks generally show a better ability to adapt to the rigors of everyday life. The difference is pronounced. Arthur Jensen observed in The g Factor that black pupils with IQ deficiencies often socially integrate well with their brighter peers. They seem quite normal when engaging in non-cerebral activities like play. In contrast, many cognitively impaired white children have difficulty integrating socially and often have physical abnormalities such as flat-footed gaits. Jensen attributes this racial divergence to different etiologies that are transparent to IQ tests.

Two types of mental retardation can be differentiated. Organic retardation is due to a genetic anomaly or brain damage brought about by disease or trauma. Familial retardation results from normal variations in intelligence. Among whites with IQ < 70, between 25 and 50 percent are diagnosed as organic. Since 2 percent of whites have IQ < 70, 0.5 to 1.0 percent of the entire white population is organically retarded. Jensen estimates that of the blacks with IQ < 70, only 12.5 percent are organically retarded. (We estimate the number closer to 16.7 percent.) Thus for blacks, we expect 16.7 percent of the 12 percent with IQs < 70 to have organic etiologies. That is, about 2.0 percent of the black population at large is organically retarded. Following Jensen, if we associate most of nonadaptive behavior with organic retardation, then Reference County should classify about 2.0 percent of black children and 0.5 to 1.0 percent of white children as mentally retarded. Blacks in Reference County will be retarded at 2 to 4 times the rate of whites. Table 2 compares the offending counties to Reference County.

Prince Georges:   Black 0.448% 1.52
White 0.290%
Reference County:  Black 2.0% 2.0 to 4.0
White 0.5% to 1.0%

Table 2. Rates of mental retardation found in Maryland’s five offending counties compared with the expected rates in Reference County.

From Table 2 we note that the ratio of black to white retarded children is in the expected range for two of the five cited counties, Baltimore and Howard. In two others, Harford and Montgomery, the ratio is only slightly out of bounds. In Prince Georges County the B/W ratio is lower, but still not egregiously so. We safely conclude that the five Maryland school districts did not discriminate against blacks, and that administrators and staff mostly did their jobs conscientiously.

Data in Table 2 also point to a general reluctance to classify any student as retarded, especially if he is black. Only two of the counties, Baltimore and Harford, fell within the expected range for white retardation, 0.5 to 1.0 percent. All of the counties fell below the 2 percent retardation rate expected for blacks. Both sets of numbers reflect the decades-long campaign of the Department of Education to “cure” mental retardation.


Do Rates of Mental Retardation Correlate with Political Philosophy?

Few of any political persuasion know very much about racial differences, but that does not deter them from staking out political positions on race. Liberals and conservatives alike seldom admit (at least publicly) that abilities correlate with race. Still, they tend to come down on different sides of racial issues. Mental retardation has become very much such an issue. We looked for correlations between political philosophy and the tendency to classify children “retarded.”

In 1998, Marylanders were given a clear philosophical choice when they went to the polls to elect a governor. Glendening (the winner) was an archetypal liberal tax and spender. Sauerbrey (the loser) was a classic hard-right conservative, with a record in the State Legislature to back that up. Huge tax cuts were high on her agenda. She decried a social welfare system run amok, condemned a decline in morality, abhorred abortion in any form, criticized gun control measures and attacked environmental regulations that intruded on property owners’ rights. The two candidates agreed on almost nothing. If ever there was a clear philosophical choice, it was in Maryland in 1998.

Because the 1998 election was drawn on such sharp ideological lines, we used election returns for the five counties to come up with a measure of political philosophy. Table 3 compares retardation rates in the five Maryland counties with the percent of the electorate in each county who voted for Sauerbrey. The rank order of retardation rate was identical to the rank order of political conservatism.

Prince Georges 0.448% 0.290% 26% 5 5

Table 3. Rates of mental retardation as a function of political conservatism.

The correlation between retardation rate and percent support for Sauerbrey was extraordinary, with correlation coefficients of 0.88 and 0.90 for the black and white rates, respectively. Correlation coefficients this large are almost unheard of in social science. It is a pretty safe bet that right-leaning school districts will find more of their children retarded than their left-leaning counterparts, a fact that leftists have long suspected.

The Sex Gap in Mathematics Revisited: A Theory of Everyone
At the annual meeting of Women Against the Gap, Prodigy unveils a model of mathematical ability that brings together seemingly isolated facts. He demonstrates that there is a single math ability gap between the sexes, biological in origin, and independent of race, culture and geography. Prodigy introduces the theory of Everyone which accounts for all available data. Volume 10, Number 1, December 2008

Why Most Serial Killers Are White Men
Buried under mounds of sociological data, certain quantities hole up waiting to be unearthed. Inconspicuous, they require a bit of digging to expose them. With analytical shovel in hand, La Griffe uncovers criminality distributions for white, black and Hispanic men. He offers two recipes for reducing the black/white incarceration ratio. Volume 9, Number 2, May 2007

Intelligence, Gender and Race
General intelligence, its form and how it is distributed in various populations are among the topics covered in this conversation with Prodigy. A new kind of meta-analysis is unveiled, and with it an assessment of the cognitive gender gap. All this and more when La Griffe du Lion interviews a celebrated whiz kid. Volume 9, Number 1, January 2007

Politics, Imprisonment and Race
An adult black man is seven times as likely as his white counterpart to reside behind bars. Paradoxically, the largest disparities are found in political domains controlled by liberals — the leaders in the struggle for racial justice. By examining how criminal behavior is distributed within the races, the paradox is resolved showing it to be an unintended consequence of liberal benevolence and goodwill. Volume 8, Number 1, April 2006

Sex Differences in Mathematical Aptitude
Mathematics is a man’s game. A gender gap appears early in life, blossoms with the onset of puberty and reaches full bloom by mid-adolescence. It indelibly shapes women’s prospects for doing significant mathematics. In this account of cognitive sex differences, Prodigy shows how sex-differentiated ability in 15 year-olds accounts for the exiguous female representation at the highest levels of mathematical research. A female Fields Medalist is predicted to surface once every 103 years. Volume 7, Number 2, July 2005

Smart Fraction Theory II: Why Asians Lag
Deeply gratified by Mentor’s interest in smart fraction theory, and mindful of his appreciation of its good fit to observation, Prodigy offers a refinement to the theory that, notwithstanding the success of the original, should forever alter the way in which national wealth and IQ are perceived.  Volume 6, Number 2, May 2004

Prodigy and Mentor propose a theory to explain newly published data relating national IQ to economic development. The theory predicts sigmoid dependence of per capita GDP on mean national IQ. Volume 4, Number 1, March 2002

Dogs, Runners and the Distribution of Human Attributes
With the beauty of Piemontese ladies still fresh upon his memory, whatever good intentions La Griffe might have entertained when he sat down at the keyboard to chronicle therewith the results of his recent musings, his attention was quickly diverted by thoughts of Piemonte in October, of white truffles in Alba and of the hounds that unearth them. From this improbable fusion of reverie and analysis emerged this account of biodiversity among dogs, runners and the tribes from whence they spring. Considered are such diverse questions as how gender differences in aggressiveness compare in men and dogs, and whether a European can ever again win an Olympic medal in distances over 1500m.

Racial Disparities in School Discipline
There are among us persons of so refined and delicate a nature that they cannot bear the guilt even of crimes they have not committed. Their shame is so great that they turn their considerable talents to serve the demagogues of bias. In this essay we analyze their efforts to document racial discrimination in school discipline, and humbly offer advice on how to improve their methods.

Diversity and Excellence: Are They Compatible?
In 1954, a unanimous Supreme Court declared that racially segregated schools were inherently unequal. The Court based its decision on studies showing that “segregated schools damaged the psyches of black children and their motivation to learn.” But do black students really achieve more in racially mixed classrooms? And what of whites? In this essay we examine how racial diversity affects achievement. Along the way we find and resolve a puzzling anomaly.

The Case of the Uncounted Ballots
In the days following the 2000 presidential election in Florida, million of words were written to analyze the result, but few were necessary. In this issue, Prodigy chronicles a remarkable visit to his friend and mentor, wherein Mentor evaluates the minimum IQ needed to cast a proper ballot for every voting system used in Florida. From these, the true winner is revealed, as is the margin of victory.   Volume 3, Number 1, January 2001

Aggressiveness, Criminality and Sex Drive by Race, Gender and Ethnicity
Certain human qualities share with each other the property of fuzziness. We call them fuzzy variables. Their meaning, though clear by standards of ordinary language, lack predictive precision. To make them quantitative, we introduce a technique we call the method of thresholds. With it, we compare aggressiveness, criminality and sex drive by race, gender and ethnicity.

The Color of Death Row
For those who desire a dispassionate view of death-row justice, let them know that no axe will be ground here, and lest there be any well-intentioned persons who do not perceive the difference between polemic and analysis, style and substance, pomposity and eloquence, let them know that it is always the latter to which we aspire, never the former. For those who endure the stringency of this essay, let them also know they will discover that justice depends on geography, that much of America is fair, and that bias on death row affects mostly whites.  Volume 2, Number 10, October 2000

The Politics of Mental Retardation: A Tail of the Bell Curve
Political movements have victims, and the cause of diversity is no exception. Whites, Asians and males are all casualties of the diversicrat, but his most deplorable incivility makes victims of the hapless.  If anyone should deny the politicization of mental retardation, let him confront the data presented herein.  Volume 2, Number 9, September 2000

IQ Matters Prodigy and his friend Jesse join Mentor to discuss Prodigy’s approaching college choice. Together they solve the mystery of how an otherwise unremarkable college managed to produce eight Nobel Prize winners in 21 years. Prodigy and Jesse come up with novel estimates of the Ashkenazic Jewish IQ.  Volume 2, Number 8, August 2000

Educating a Black Elite Thousands of  blacks in the US have IQ scores above 130, many more above 120. A war is raging over who will hire them and who will educate them. In the corporate board room where the bottom line rules and fear of litigation lurks around every corner, the need to diversify is overriding. It is a cost of doing business. But nowhere is diversity more alive than on the college campus. University faculty are true believers. Diversity on campus is like God at a revival meeting. Academics recruit minorities with the passion of evangelists, but diversity does not come easy. Industry and universities face the same obstacle: the appalling lack of minority talent. In this essay we examine how one university deals with this issue. Volume 2, Number 7, July 2000

The Death of Meritocracy The noise has subsided, and with passions contained we look back at Prop 209 and Hopwood. Our goal: to check for compliance with the law. To help, we developed tests capable of exposing violations in exquisite detail. But when we saw admissions data from the medical schools of the University of California and the Law School at the University of Texas, we found noncompliance so blatant that simple inspection revealed it. Butchering a steer with a scalpel, however, does have its moments. Under Prop 209, the UCLA Medical School admitted 51 blacks and Hispanics in 1997. The chance of that occurring without the use of preferences was 1 in 10364. (There are about 10100 fundamental particles in the universe.) Volume 2, Number 6, June 2000

Analysis of Hate Crime Bias-motivated crime has unique characteristics. As in heterosexual rape, victims and offenders come from different groups. Unlike rape, however, hate crime is reciprocal. Each group can prey upon the other. Though not obvious, these singular aspects incline the data in a unique way. The sizes of victim and offender groups influence victimization rates in a way that is often more significant than intrinsic group bias. Methods are developed for interpreting  hate-crime statistics. They are applied to recent FBI data. Volume 2, Number 5, May 2000

2048 An eleven-year-old prodigy peers into the future, looking at the condition of racial and ethnic polarization at mid-century. From the single assumption that earning ability is distributed differently among racial and ethnic groups, Prodigy develops a formalism to describe intergroup polarization. From this analysis a pair of limiting laws emerge: Prodigy’s Laws I and II. Volume 2, Number 4, April 2000

Standardized Tests: The Interpretation of Racial and Ethnic Gaps The interpretation of standardized test scores is full of traps that news media, politicians and interested citizens commonly fall into. Racial and ethnic gaps, and particularly their trends, are not always what they seem. A perceived gap decrease can really be an increase, and vice versa. In this essay we show how to make sense of test-score data.  Examples are taken from Maryland (MSPAP) and Texas (TAAS) statewide exams, the bar exam and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Exam Part I. A coherent pattern emerges. Volume 2, Number 3, March 2000

Some Thoughts about Jews, IQ and Nobel Laureates A dialogue between an eleven-year-old prodigy and his mentor leads to a conjecture on the achievements of Ashkenazic Jews, and an estimate of the mean IQ of the Nobel laureates.  Volume 2, Number 2, February 2000

Black Athletes: Can Whites Measure Up? One of the under-celebrated sagas of human biodiversity in the last quarter of the twentieth century is the emergence of the black athlete. His primacy is so conspicuous in some sports, that at the highest levels of competition other racial groups are all but invisible. In this essay, La Griffe du Lion analyzes the black-white athletic ability gap and shows how to measure it. We introduce the notion of an athletic quotient or AQ, and estimate black-white AQ gaps. Methods are developed to show how AQ can be used to make predictions ranging from the most probable racial makeup of a high-school basketball team to the probability that a randomly selected white can run faster than a randomly selected black.  Volume 2, Number 1, January 2000

Affirmative Action: The Robin Hood Effect. In this essay La Griffe du Lion models the effect of affirmative action on the income of whites, blacks and Hispanics. It is shown that on average a black worker, between the ages of 25 and 64, earns an extra $9,400 a year because of affirmative action. Hispanics also benefit to the tune of almost $4,000 a year. However, being a zero-sum game, white workers pay an average of about $1,900 annually to foot the bill.  Volume 1, Number 4, December 1999

Crime in the Hood. Violent victimization of whites by blacks is modeled in a racially mixed inner-city neighborhood. Its evolution is traced from the first black to move in, to the last white who moves out. The probability of a white being violently attacked is developed as a function of a neighborhood’s racial composition. It is shown to increase nonlinearly, approaching unity as a neighborhood becomes predominately black.  Volume 1, Number 3, November 1999

The Color of Meritocracy. In a society based on meritocratic principles, a pattern of color will emerge that reflects the distribution of human attributes among racial and ethnic groups. Such patterns have developed in America in professional sports. In other areas, however, we have been more circumspect. In this essay, La Griffe takes a mostly dispassionate look at how to calculate, by race and ethnicity, the outcome of any competition in which group abilities differ. We focus on cognitive differences, saving other group variations for later consideration. Depending on where in the culture wars you stand, the method can be used to test claims of equity or inequity. Illustrations are provided that range from the promotion of police officers to law school admissions.  Volume 1, Number 2, October 1999

Women and Minorities in Science. Prospects for women and minority doctoral scientists in engineering and other math-intensive areas are examined. A calculation of the ethnic-gender profile of this segment of the workforce is made for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Rank ordering on mathematical reasoning ability predicts that women will top off at approximately 27 percent of this market. Similarly, rank ordering predicts almost 99 percent of math-intensive doctoral jobs will go to whites and Asians of primarily Chinese, Japanese, Korean and South Asian descent. Asians will continue to be represented in these fields well beyond their numbers in the general population. A study of the math-intensive academic marketplace predicts that women will top off there at about 22 to 23 percent. Volume 1, Number 1, September 1999

The double standard is an insurmountable wall.

The double standard is an insurmountable wall.

I find it unfathomable in many parts of the European Union you can be arrested, tried, face serious fines and even long prison terms for uttering the word nigger yet we find lyrics like this:
“We’re having thoughts of overthrowing the government. . . . the brothers and sisters threw their fists in the air. . . . it’s open season on crackers, you know; the morgue will be full of Caucasian John Doe’s. . . . I make the Riot shit look like a fairy tale. . . . oh my god, Allah, have mercy; I’m killing them devils because they’re not worthy to walk the earth with the original black man; they must be forgetting; it’s time for Armageddon, and I won’t rest until they’re all dead”
“Goin Bananas”; Da Lench Mob, Planet of da Apes, 1994, Priority Records, Thorn EMI; now called The EMI Group, United Kingdom.
That’s inciting the overthrow of government, declaring open season on Europeans while stridently urging European Caucasian annihilation.
What is even more stupefying is the dissemination of this message is both encouraged and supported by some of the largest multi-billion dollar communication conglomerates in the world.
But if I were to come with these lyrics to a catchy little tune:
“We’re having thoughts of overthrowing the government. . . . the white brothers and white sisters threw their fists in the air. . . . it’s open season on niggers, you know; the morgue will be full of nigger Tyrone and Jamal’s. . . . I make the Tulsa race riots look like a fairy tale. . . . oh my god, God, have mercy; I’m killing niggers because they’re not worthy to walk the earth with the original white man; they must be forgetting; it’s time for Armageddon, and I won’t rest until all niggers are dead”
I would be condemned by society, most likely lose my job, be branded a terrorist, be branded a traitor, be arrested for inciting racial hatred and treason, be found guilty and sentenced to years in prison.
If anyone else but me put “We’re having thoughts of overthrowing the government. . . . the white brothers….” on the the forum it would be removed immediately with the member most likely banned. I wouldn’t say I disagreed with the poster but two things spring to my mind. First we would probably be booted (again) from the system and I would be scared to death of a midnight knock on the door from the FBI, CIA, NSA or other government security body.
Advocating the overthrowing of government is a very serious crime in the united states. It could be treason which could carry the death sentence.
Honest to God I just don’t get it. It’s as if the European race, Europeans especially, are hell bent on aiding and abetting a continental suicide. Where is the “outrage”?
Below is an assortment of rap lyrics as written by your favorite rap artists then published by multi-national billion dollar conglomerates like Time-Warner of the United States. Time-Warner is the parent company of America On Line and if you are a member you know the quickest way to get banned is to disparage AOL’s highly protected class of pet niggers and faggots.

The breakup of the U.S. in a gigantic civil war among the American races- from FM 6-2003 Ethnic Cleansing Operations

When?
“A grim, but possible, variation … is the breakup of the U.S. in a gigantic civil war
among the American races. As pro-white backlash reclaims the country, non-whites
refuse to accept their reduced status. They bitterly resent the repeal of civil rights, loss of
affirmative action and federal supports. They are a minority, but a huge one-third of the
population, including 40 million blacks and 50 million Hispanics increasingly resentful of
the 200 million whites. The white vision of delicately balancing white dominance with
non-white submission is scorned – and collapses. Congress sinks into a powerless arena
of racial outbursts and denunciations. As danger-signs mount, citizens of every race
stockpile guns, survival-supplies and home-security systems. Clashes over race issues
and incidents mount, all dramatized by TV media clutching for viewer market share.
Tensions boil into raw anger, then open violence and race war.”
Ending the Race Crisis in the 21st Century, James Owens, Ph.D., 1999.

In the world of political science, absolutely the hardest thing to predict is the actual date
something will happen. In the war to recreate the White society this country once was,
the decision to begin the campaigns of ethnic cleansing will be based on a few key
elements: the political loyalty of White police, the percentage of the American combat
forces within the country, the level of racial tension, and a violent incident (such as the
Rodney King beating) or a series of organized racist attacks on Whites.
Over the years there have been many attempts to predict calamity by survivalist
doomsayers. During the Cold War there were many predictions of imminent takeovers by
the Soviet Union. Echoes of those old predictions exit today among those who entertain
beliefs that somehow the destitute country of Russia has military designs on the United
States. Indeed they may have the wish to take over the US, but they lack everything from
manpower to money. The real threat in the US is the presence of the Black race, with the
Chicanos not far behind them. If anyone wishes to have something to worry about, they
need look no further than the cluster of Black thugs standing on the corner.
You have been instructed on the history of ethnic cleansing, its components, and even a
military strategy to flush them all into Mexico and Cuba—like so much waste down a
toilet. The key factor remaining is still, when?
The old survivalists would base their decisions on what’s called the “five finger theory.”
That is, when five major banks fail, five cities descend into chaos, and so on. That theory
is long dead, proven wrong by the LA riots which spread to over twenty cities, and the
hundreds of banks that collapsed after the S&L scandals. The real moment to pick up the
guns and start up the tanks will present itself, but predicting that date is impossible. Fear
not, however, for that day is indeed on the horizon. It is inevitable.
White leaders and individuals should do an inventory of large military equipment in their
areas. It can be as simple as just driving by a National Guard armory and counting the
vehicles. Occasionally local National Guard units hold Open Houses and invite the
public. Take the opportunity and attend. Shake hands with the Guardsmen and make
friends. If your visit is timed right, large doors on hangars and garages will be open. You
may be able to see, identify and count the HUMMVEEs, trucks, mortars, guns, armored
personnel carriers, tanks and other useful equipment in their inventory.
Racially conscious White men and women of military age should enlist in the Guard or
State Defense Force and get to know the equipment well. The National Guard and
Reserve will be keeping their eyes and ears open to such infiltration, so watch what is
said. It may be better to learn all the facets of operating a tank and then training trusted
civilian friends, rather than trying to convert fellow guardsmen.
Should we be so lucky as to have Nation of Islam or some other radical non-White group
start their own campaign of ethnic cleansing before we do, recruits will be much easier to
find. Surviving members of slain White families will be eager to avenge the deaths of
their loved ones. Those people should be quickly trained, if already veterans or active
military they should be sent to the front lines immediately.

In this effort size is everything. Military commanders, National Guard commanders, State
Defense Force commanders, and militia commanders should think BIG. Think tanks,
think artillery and rocket barrages, think air strikes with Warthogs and Apache
helicopters. Even if you do not have access to this equipment, train as though you do.
Train for the Air Land battle. Practice calling in air strikes, artillery barrages, and other
real-war methods. Learn the proper communication skills to call in artillery without
having it fall on your men. Learn to read and use grid-coordinates on military maps.
This will not be a war of squads but of companies and divisions. As soon as forces can be
assembled, that being the consolidation of every White militant and radical group, exconvicts,
military deserters, militias, bikers and everyone else who wants in on the
fight—the attacks should begin.
When the time comes, use the strategies in this book or equally good strategies of your
own to launch a wide coordinated offensive putting theory into practice. If you do not
live directly in the path of military operations, there is still much you and your friends
can do on the local level. Once things begin you can round up the Blacks in your city and
either herd them to the military forces or take care of them yourselves.
The White race has walked on the moon. We have invented virtually everything that
makes up the modern technological world. If we can do these things, we certainly can rid
ourselves of the predators that walk among us. If anything, the coming fight can be
compared to a crusade, a crusade to save our race. Every White who reads this manual
needs to prepare and stand ready. Think about how to systematically cleanse your
neighborhood and town. Then, when the time comes, spring into action.

Epilogue
“I have given my life to try to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is something that
all white men who have lived here like I must learn and know: that these individuals are a
sub-race. They have neither the intellectual, mental, or emotional abilities to equate or to
share equally with white men in any function of our civilization. I have given my life to
try to bring them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become
well aware that we must retain this status: the superior and they the inferior. For
whenever a white man seeks to live among them as their equals they will either destroy
him or devour him. And they will destroy all of his work. Let white men from anywhere
in the world, who would come to Africa, remember that you must continually retain this
status; you the master and they the inferior like children that you would help or teach.
Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or they
will devour you. They will destroy you.”
Dr. Albert Schweitzer, From My African Notebook, 1961.

Imagine, walking down a sidewalk and not having to play a game of chicken with some
Neanderthal. Imagine, jobs for everyone wanting a job. Imagine, not being awakened at
three in the morning by blaring anti-White hate music. This and much more await the
White race.
After ridding the country of Blacks, the U.S. government may not even exist anymore, or
Dixie may have seceded again. If the U.S. government has survived, they will have
invited the United Nations and NATO to enforce multiculturalism. A campaign against
such forces will be designed to preserve our victory and our leaders.
Provided the United States no longer exists, White forces should remain on the border to
assure that Blacks do not cross back to cause trouble. If Dixie has seceded, the victorious
White forces will now become the national army of Dixie.
The possibility of the UN kidnapping leaders of the ethnic cleansing operations, and
shipping them to The Hague for “war crimes” trials is a legitimate concern. All efforts
must be made to protect key personnel. Should leaders be kidnapped and jailed, every
attempt must be made to free them. Jailed leaders and fighters should remain confident
that their cause is just and their deeds are answerable only to the highest law, that of
survival and sanctity of the White race. Everyone who participates in an operation of this
magnitude does so in the knowledge that their race is more important than anything else
in this earthly life. The Hague has no power to administer the death penalty, so any
imprisoned personnel should look at being caught as guaranteed retirement, three “hots
and a cot” every day for the rest of their lives.
On the bright side, over eight million jobs will open up for Caucasians. Manufacturing
will improve. Schools will adopt higher standards of performance from students. Most
importantly, crime will drop dramatically and as a result, antigun and other anticonstitutional
groups will wither and die from lack of horror stories on the nightly news
which prop up their issues. This presumes that the leaders, executive committees, office
staffs and major contributors of such groups have not already been rounded up and
lynched.
It is easy to foresee what will happen when the cockroaches that perpetrate 75% of the
violent crime are amongst us no longer. Troops taking part in ethnic cleansing operations
undoubtedly will be vilified in the global media, but the proof of the justness of the cause
will be the dramatic drop in crime. At first many Whites will not know how to act, what
with having lived their entire lives putting up with creepy thugs, blaring jungle music,
and strings of news reports of burglaries, carjackings, rapes, murders and robberies
committed by Blacks. Expect many Whites to be unaccustomed to the peace and quiet.
A new and thrilling era awaits us. Now let us put this plan into action.

Anger With Federal Government Not Enough

Anger With Federal Government Not Enough

By Chuck Baldwin

According to Rasmussen Reports, “Seventy-one percent (71%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. That figure includes 46% who are Very Angry.

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 27% are not angry about the government’s policies, including 10% who are Not at All Angry.”

The report goes on to say, “The data suggests that the level of anger is growing. The 71% who are angry at federal government policies today is up five percentage points since September.

“Even more stunning, the 46% who are Very Angry is up 10 percentage points from September.”

The report also states, “The latest numbers show that only nine percent (9%) of voters trust the judgment of America’s political leaders more than the judgment of the American people.” It further states, “Seventy-one percent (71%) believe the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Sixty-eight percent (68%) believe that government and big business work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors.”

Rasmussen Reports goes on to say that voter opposition to the proposed health care plan, government bailouts, and higher taxes is especially high.

See the report here.

That Americans are angry with the federal government is nothing new. As a general rule, Americans STAY angry with the federal government. So what? Nothing changes, anger and discontentment notwithstanding.

Oh! Occasionally, grassroots effort can be mustered in sufficient quantity to stop whatever happens to be the latest effort by the miscreants in Washington, D.C., that tramples our freedoms. But only occasionally. The only recent triumph I can think of was when G.W. Bush, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain tried to ram an amnesty bill for illegal aliens through Congress. But never fear, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid will pick up that particular baton soon enough.

I’m old enough to remember when giving the Panama Canal away was opposed by virtually everyone outside the Beltway. It changed nothing. Jimmy Carter and Congress gave it away, anyway. Most people oppose the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. So what? Our troops are not only still there, but more are on the way. Most people believe children should be allowed to pray and read the Bible in school. So what? They still are forbidden from doing so. Most people believed former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore had the right to post the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. So what? He was forced to take them down, anyway (and removed from office in the process). I could go on, but you get the point.

Anger and opposition to Washington’s policies and edicts–no matter now egregious–hardly ever translate into anything beyond words of frustration. And Washington politicians don’t pay much attention to rhetoric–not even their own.

You see, the wizards in Washington and on Wall Street have us figured out. Along with their compatriots in the propaganda press corps, they know that no matter how loudly we scream, how much we protest, or how angry we become, the system is rigged to protect them. The best we the people can seem to come up with is “throwing the bums out” every two or four years. BUT NOTHING CHANGES–at least, not in terms of restoring the fundamental principles of freedom and constitutional government.

Throw out George H.W. Bush in 1992, and nothing changes. Throw the Democrats out of Congress in 1994, and nothing changes. Throw Bill Clinton’s party out of the White House in 2000, and nothing changes. Throw out G.W. Bush’s Republicans in 2008, and nothing changes. The only thing that happens with a changing of the guard is an escalation in the pace of whatever version of socialism–or Big Government program–is currently in vogue. With Bush it meant expanding the Warfare State. With Obama it means expanding the Welfare State. But both do everything they can to expand Big Government.

When will we awaken to the reality that Washington, D.C., has had the American people chasing their tails for decades? People, wake up! As long as we continue to focus our attention and energy on Washington, D.C., we will only continue to supply more rope to those who wish to hang us.

Washington, D.C., is too far gone to salvage. Admit it! Washington is a cesspool, a landfill, and a putrid pond of corruption and duplicity. Neither the Republican nor Democratic Party will ever allow a principled constitutionalist to become its Presidential nominee. No matter whom we elect as President, the beat toward Big-Government socialism and one-world internationalism will go on without interruption. Big Government scalawags own the entire federal system, including Big Media, Big Business, Big Labor, Big Religion, and Big Special Interest Groups. They are all feeding at the government teat.

Therefore, it is absolutely obligatory that freedom-minded Americans refocus their attention to electing State legislators, governors, judges and sheriffs who will fearlessly defend their God-given liberties. And, as plainly and emphatically as I know how to say it, I am telling you: ONLY THE STATES CAN DEFEND OUR LIBERTY NOW! And awakening to this reality means we will have to completely readjust our thinking and priorities.

It means awakening to the fact that Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly (and the rest of Big Media’s talking heads) are, for the most part, irrelevant to providing real solutions to the continuing loss of liberty. And, in truth, they are, more often than not, part of the problem, because they continue to focus our attention on Washington, D.C., and off the source of genuine solution, which lies with the states drawing a constitutional line in the sand for freedom. Good grief! Beck and O’Reilly have recently even advocated for higher federal taxes! Yeah! That’s a real solution: more power and money to Washington, D.C. Ughhh!

Instead of getting all worked up about what Glenn Beck says or what Sarah Palin says or what CFR member and Big Government neocon Newt Gingrich says, start paying attention to what your State legislators and candidates are saying.

If we had more State legislators such as Washington State’s Matthew Shea; Georgia’s Bobby Franklin; Pennsylvania’s Sam Rohrer; New Hampshire’s Dan Itse; Michigan’s Paul Opsommer; Oklahoma’s Randy Brogdon, Sally Kern and Charles Key; Montana’s Rick Jore, Greg Hinkle, and Joel Boniek; Tennessee’s Susan Lynn; South Carolina’s Michael Pitts and Lee Bright; Missouri’s Jim Guest and Cynthia Davis; and sheriffs such as South Carolina’s Ray Nash, Arizona’s Richard Mack and Joe Arpaio, Montana’s Jay Printz and Shane Harrington, etc., it wouldn’t matter what those nincompoops inside the Beltway do. The federal government cannot violate your rights and steal your freedoms without the consent and approbation of your State government.

Folks, let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road: the reason we are in the miserable mess we are in is because the states have–either wittingly or unwittingly–ceded their authority and independence to Washington, D.C. Therefore, it is now critical that states reclaim their authority–authority that is duly granted them under the US Constitution.

All of us who call ourselves conservatives or constitutionalists or libertarians (who, no doubt, compose a majority, especially in “red” states) need to retake our State governments. Elect a governor who knows how to say “No” to the federal government. Elect a State legislature that knows how to say “No” to Washington, D.C. Elect sheriffs and State judges who understand the Constitution, State sovereignty, and the principles of freedom–and who are courageous enough to defend those sacred principles in the face of attempted federal usurpation.

The truth is, for all intents and purposes, we could turn off television completely and be in no worse shape. And newspapers are no better. The vast majority of them blatantly support and promote Big Government. As Mark Twain said, “If you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.”

With Big Media, it’s all about Washington politics. Period. For the most part, the conservative-liberal/Republican-Democrat paradigm is nothing but a distraction at best, and a scam at worst, to keep all of us safely on the federal reservation, where we are without hope or recourse to actually change anything.

Ladies and Gentlemen, freedom in America has only one hope: the resurrection of State independence and sovereignty. Fortunately, there are rumblings around the country that this revival has already begun.

The last time I checked, some 38 states have introduced Tenth Amendment resolutions–or some form of federal nullification proposals–in their State assemblies. To follow the status of various states’ rights initiatives, keep an eye on these two web sites:

If conservatives/constitutionalists/libertarians would spend as much time and energy influencing elections and policies at the State and local levels as they attempt to do at the national level, we could turn this floundering ship of state around. If he had the support and backing of his State’s legislature and sheriffs, imagine what ONE constitutionalist governor could do. I get goose bumps thinking about it!

Imagine a State with its own financial system–its own currency, banks, regulatory agencies, etc. Imagine a State with its own militia–under the authority of the governor only–completely independent from any responsibility to the President or federal government. Imagine a State with an education system unfettered by the federal Department of Education. Imagine a State where the BLM, the FBI, the ATF, and the DEA had to actually submit to State law. Imagine a State with no federal bribes, or federal “funding” as it is commonly called–except as is constitutionally constructed (with no strings attached). Imagine a State with its own health care system. Imagine a State with no FEMA–UNLESS INVITED IN. Imagine a State that would not allow Washington’s spooks to unlawfully spy on law-abiding citizens. Imagine a State that actually had a say in how much land the federal government could claim for its own. Imagine a State where citizens never had to worry about a national ID act. Imagine a State that would protect the right of its citizens to freely express their faith in the public square. Imagine a State that did not demand that its farmers put RFID computer chips in their livestock. Imagine a State that would let you drill a well without reporting it to the federal government. And for some really fun mind games, imagine a State that would be willing to challenge the constitutionality and legitimacy of the direct income tax and the IRS. All of this–and more–is attainable with a constitutionalist State government committed to protecting the liberties of its citizens.

I repeat: freedom in America has only one hope: the resurrection of State independence and sovereignty. In the US Constitution, our Founding Fathers sagaciously reserved to State governments their independence and sovereignty, knowing that they had the awesome responsibility of being the last (and greatest) vanguard of liberty for the American people. They never intended or imagined that the states would ever become a doormat for the central government (which is what most of them have become).

In this regard, the states that are proposing State sovereignty resolutions should immediately band together to overturn the 17th Amendment, because this amendment strips the states of their constitutional powers by turning US senators into Washington insiders, who are more beholden to Washington interests than the interests and well-being of the states that they are supposed to represent.

If the 71% of voters who are angry with the federal government would channel their energies into electing constitutionalist governors and State legislators, their anger might actually produce real and lasting change. As it is, efforts to “reform” Washington, D.C., are like trying to teach a hog to take a bath. Instead, let the hog wallow in the mud, but make sure the mudhole stays small; don’t let it spread to your back yard. And keeping that Washington mudhole small is the job of the states. And, in case you have not noticed, the mudhole has already grown to the point that it’s not just in your back yard; it’s on your front porch and about to consume your whole house.

What The New Census Bureau Projections Mean For Climate Change—And America

What The New Census Bureau Projections Mean For Climate Change—And America

By Steve Sailer

With President Obama barely back from the climate change conference in Copenhagen, his anti-global warming accord is evidently already working its wonders, unleashing a blizzard to blanket the East Coast with snow.

With climate in the news, it’s a good time to review the Census Bureau study of the factor that will have the single greatest impact on U.S. carbon emissions over the next 40 years: immigration.

With a couple of weeks left in the decade, the Census Bureau has finally gotten around to releasing What If? projections showing the impact of various immigration policies on America’s population (which is today 308 million):

“… a greater number of migrants arriving in the United States will correspond to a larger increase in the size of the total population. Under the assumption of a high level of net international migration, the population is expected to grow to 458 million by 2050. … “
[United States Population Projections: 2000 to 2050 by Jennifer M. Ortman and Christine E. Guarneri of the Census Bureau]

That’s an increase of 150 million carbon-belching residents of America.

“In contrast, for the Zero Net International Migration series the population will increase slightly by 2050 to 323 million. “

That’s an increase of only 15 million.

In other words, immigration policy will determine whether the population grows over the next four decades by 150 million or by 15 million—an order of magnitude!

Although the new Census Bureau projections were released last week at the peak of the media frenzy over Copenhagen, not a single one of the 387 articles tabulated by Google News mentioned “carbon,” “climate,” or “warming.”

Americans are just not supposed to think about the link between immigration, population, and carbon emissions. Ignorance is Strength!

Mark Twain famously said: “Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it.” Yet the conventional wisdom in this decade has been that we should be passionately doing something—anything—about the weather, but not even talking about the population.

The Census Bureau’s 2009 projections are based on their 2008 projection, which I discussed in VDARE.com last year. The old forecast just assumed a single best-guess that the net number of immigrants would grow to over 2.0 million per year by 2050.

This year’s projections—which got a little publicity because they pushed back slightly the date at which whites are set to become a minority in America—feature four different scenarios regarding net immigration (see Figure 1 in the report). This allows us a much better understanding of effect of immigration:

  • High Immigration: Net immigration grows to an annual rate of 2.4 million by 2050, and the total population reaches 458 million (of which 144 million would be Hispanic).
  • “Low” Immigration: Net immigration reaches 1.7 million by the middle of the century, and the population climbs to 423 million (124 million Hispanics).
  • Constant Immigration: The net number of immigrants stays flat at just under one million per year, and the population hits 399 million (111 million Hispanics).
  • Zero Immigration: The number of immigrants equals the number of emigrants, and the population peaks at 323 million in 2050 (68 million Hispanics).

Please note something that the Census Bureau doesn’t quite make clear: “Zero Net International Migration” doesn’t mean zero immigration. It means that the number of emigrants and immigrants must be equal. Since a few hundred thousand people emigrate from the U.S. each year, a few hundred thousand immigrants per year could be accommodated under a policy of Zero Net International Migration.

You’ll notice that the Census Bureau’s “Low” immigration scenario is higher than the Constant scenario of under a million net immigrants per year. “Low” assumes almost a doubling of the annual number of immigrants over the next 40 years.

In other words, the Census Bureau is assuming, rightly, that without a major political effort to limit immigration, the annual number of immigrants will inevitably expand.

That’s because immigration naturally tends to feed upon itself. Moving to America becomes easier the more friends and relatives a potential immigrant already has in America.

In contrast, there are 240 million people in Indonesia, but the 2000 Census found only 63,000 Indonesians in this country. With so few friends and relatives currently established in the U.S., moving to America affords Indonesians a daunting prospect. Yet, if we allow the Indonesian beachheads in America to expand, eventually they will be large enough to attract an exponentially growing number of Indonesians. (And there are a lot of Indonesians…)

It’s instructive to extend out the scenarios from the Census Bureau’s stopping point in the year 2050 to 2100.

Under the High Immigration assumptions, the Census Bureau expects the annual increase in population to slowly decline from 1.06 percent in 2010 to 0.89 percent in 2050. If we assume the same rate of deceleration of growth in the second half of the century, down to a 0.64 percent annual increase by 2100, America’s population will then be 668 million.

That’s 668,000,000.

It would be intriguing to ask the Climate Change folks what they think about America’s population swelling to 668 million. But, of course, they wouldn’t answer. They’d just sputter and call you names.

Besides immigration rates, another key number in projecting populations is the Total Fertility Rate (the number of babies per woman per lifetime). The Census Bureau appears to be lowballing its forecasts by underestimating the Hispanic TFR. The Census number crunchers assume that the Latino Total Fertility Rate was 2.73 in 2001 and that it falls gently to 2.70 in 2010 and down to 2.29 in 2050.

In reality, the Hispanic Total Fertility Rate rose significantly in this decade, reaching 2.99 in 2007, the last year for which we have annual data. (I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if the Hispanic birth rate drops by 2009, due to high unemployment among Hispanics, especially construction workers following the bursting of the delusionary Housing Bubble.)

It’s crucial to understand the long run impact of high fertility rates among immigrants. When a country admits an immigrant, it is also admitting descendents unto the seventh generation.

Different cultures bring radically different fertility patterns to the U.S. We can’t afford to be oblivious to the implications any longer.

For example, in 2005, the TFR in California of foreign-born Latinas was 3.7, while it was 2.2 among American-born Latinas. This means that the typical Latina immigrant can expect to have over 8.1 grandchildren, or double the replacement rate. In contrast, Asian immigrant women in California can expect 2.8 grandchildren (2.0 TFR for the first generation and 1.4 in subsequent generations). American-born white women in California can expect to average 2.6 grandchildren each due to their 1.6 TFR.

Hence letting in a Hispanic immigrant leads to almost three times as many babies being born two generations from now as letting in an Asian immigrant, or an American woman moving to California from another state.

The long run political implications for the Republican Party of massive Hispanic immigration were spelled out by Antonio Gonzalez, head of a Latino voter registration group:

“If there is one group you could say that does not share the Republican small-government philosophy, it’s Latinos. … We are Big-Government, government-safety-net, activist-government [voters]. There is a feeling in the community that today we hurt, but tomorrow is ours, so you spend money on your kids, on your community, on your schools.”

You’ll note that Mr. Gonzales tellingly depicts the Hispanic political philosophy as “you spend money on your kids,” which is not at all the same as “you spend your money on your kids.” The tax money this Hispanic activist wants to spend on Hispanics is largely earned by non-Hispanics.

If Republicans won’t restrict immigration, they had better start thinking hard about sneakier ways to postpone the oncoming political deluge for a few decades. Aristotle pointed out that the inevitable problem with democracy occurs when the majority finally grasps they can vote themselves the wealth of the minority.

That can take quite awhile, fortunately. A VDARE.com donor in Texas, a state that does not have an income tax, suggested in an email:

“One of my theories is that Texas can hold on a really long time as a tolerably low-tax place for whites who can afford to insulate themselves, as it will be a long time before a majority could show up at the polls to push through an income tax necessary to start the wealth redistribution in bulk as in California.”

Clever “poison pill” amendments can delay the point at which future liberal majorities can redistribute wealth unchecked. In 1993, my reader pointed out, Texas voters passed a referendum requiring that any income tax initiated by the legislature must be submitted to the voters for approval. My reader explained:

“The constitutional amendment elections are in odd years with no other races on the ballot. This year’s turnout was eight percent, so no one even bothers to do an exit poll for demographic stats. I’m guessing it’s mostly white people who show up to vote. “

On the other hand, he adds:

“This is actually bad because once Texas does flip all the way, things will be much farther along before many middle class whites feel any pain.”

In the very long run, he guesses that the return of literacy tests for voting eligibility is the least unachievable way to disenfranchise enough Democrats to keep the country from keeling over.

That’s a good idea to keep in mind.

Of course, it would be simpler to win the battle for patriotic immigration reform now.

White Genocide: St. John’s Bible Edition!

What does white genocide and dispossession look like? Why here’s a pretty good example

white genocide bible

New St. John’s Bible a Labor of Love, and a Gift to Mankind

…In a BBC documentary, Jackson described why the art of calligraphy changes the importance of the hand-printed word.

“It’s actually about expressing people’s emotions in a world where emotion is kept to a minimum in public life,” he said.

The St. John’s artwork is also a testament to a more diverse and knowledgeable culture.

Anthropology tells us that the origins of humans are found in Africa. So in the St. John’s Bible, Adam and Eve are depicted as Africans.

The Wisdom books are represented by an elderly Native American woman. To honor his Jewish heritage, Jesus’ genealogy is illustrated with a menorah and the double helix shape of DNA.

And evil is depicted with skeletons from the Holocaust and the remains of the World Trade Center.

“The idea,” says Triggs, “was to create a manuscript the same way that we look back on medieval manuscripts and learn a lot about what was going on with society then. Then this Bible is meant to capture today’s world.”

in 1943 Raphael Lempkin wrote on the subject of genocide

Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.

‘The destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups?’

Sounds about right to me, what say you?

Yoozio and Goodzio

Yoozio is the phonetic spelling of Józio, one of the diminutives of the Polish name Józef (Joseph). One must have earned a special affection to be promoted from the diminutive “Józek” to “Józio,” just as one does who is promoted from Joe to Joey.

Still in a café at the Market Square in Wrocław, I open my newly purchased books, to take a peak into the mind of a man as great and luminous as his close friend, Karol Wojtyła (aka John Paul II) was. Józef Tischner — Catholic priest, initial and providential pastor to the Solidarity insurrection, man of the people, highlander fond of his Góral folk culture, mountaineer, nature lover, social drinker, indefatigable teller of risqué jokes, resolutely celibate male whom women found irresistibly attractive, Doctor of Philosophy, friend of the brightest European minds of his generation, Dean of the Papal Academy of Theology and professor at the Jagiellonian University (est. 1364) in Kraków, prolific author – and “Yoozio” to his friends, particularly the shepherds among them.

These are not happy days for Americans, particularly if raised on traditional American values of Northern European provenance. Conscientious work as redemptive virtue, thrift, self-reliance, self-restraint, Biblical ethical principles, modesty, high-minded civic culture, love of liberty, distrust of centralized power,

America’s ruling elite – once the embodiment of such values and now a putrid trench running from Wall Street to Madison Avenue to Washington DC to Hollywood — has debauched and upended them as thoroughly as though it has been teleported directly from 3rd century Rome. It has deployed the full arsenal of Roman degeneration: unsustainable spending, shaving the coins of the realm, excessive taxation, disincentives to work and saving, wanton waste, corruption on an enormous scale, opulent narcissism at the top, lax borders, importing foreign populations, degrading the value of citizenship, promotion of sexual deviations and excesses, undermining the family unit, trampling on traditions, inuring the populace to “free” handouts and soul-corroding entertainment.

This has shattered the common cultural, moral and religious social capital of the Euro peoples, dissolves bonds of community and civil society, and led to strife, violence, terrorism and anti-West genocidal plots by Muslims – all of which, we shall argue, could have been avoided had the West remained the West and the East remained where it properly belongs, in the Crescent Moon East.

Squaring the circle

To square a circle is a common metaphor describing a futile attempt to solve the unsolvable. But a glance at the root of this metaphor may prove instructive.

Since ancient times, geometricians have tried to construct a square with the same area as a given circle by using only a finite number of steps with a compass and straightedge. Without going into the details, outside this author’s competence anyway, the challenge was invalidated as per the Lindemann–Weierstrass theorem, which proved that pi (π) is a transcendental rather than algebraic irrational number.

I used to live in San Francisco. The San Francisco that despite having been roiled by hippies, beatniks, anti-this-and-that, still had the feel of the charming, civilized town that it had been when Alfred Hitchcock was shooting his masterpieces there.

Observe the setting of Davidson’s Pet Shop in The Birds.  It’s a staged scene, but this is San Francisco’s Union Square in 1962-3 and that is the way middle class people looked and dressed in San Francisco. Tippi Hedren is an upper class society girl in this movie, so perhaps her suit has a finer cut and her clutch purse a higher price tag – but watch the other people milling about (and don’t miss Hitch himself).

The sum of our fears

Question:  What are these people doing in Europe? Who invited them? Who let them in? Who let them stay? What has allowed them to even dream about moving to Europe, let alone realizing a colonization plan?

In Great Britain alone, intelligence agencies are tracking 200 terrorists plots among Pakistani Brits, of whom some 2,000 are under observation. More than 400,000 Pakistani citizens of Great Britain travel every year to Pakistan – a country of 12,000 madrassas and, as of mid-2005, 55 terrorist training camps.

From Meccania to Atlantis – Part 5½: Music We Can Believe In

From the desk of Takuan Seiyo on Fri, 2008-12-26 22:32

In the 2008 presidential elections, 69.5 million Americans voted for Barack Obama campaign’s slogan, “Change we can believe in.” Others also believed that Mr. Obama would bring change, but since it would not be change they could believe in, they could not vote for the agent of that change.

The European Union too has promised, and already wrought, much change.  The European Anthem is one of the main symbols of the change the EUrocracy and its enthusiasts can believe in.

The Chinese conundrum

This is the proper space for continuing with a chapter named Exodus, but we will defer that subject. The holiday of Christian redemption approaching, the day the German-Jewish philosopher-theologian Franz Rosenzweig called “a day of entry into eternity,” it behooves us to take notice.

From Meccania to Atlantis – Part 4: Tribe

From the desk of Takuan Seiyo on Fri, 2008-12-12 11:12

500 years from now, when 26th century archeologists will be slicing through the stratum of the broken remains of Frankfurt or Philadelphia, chips of silicon chips next to bits of Snickers and Big Mac wrappers under mounds of DVD shards, squashed satellite dishes among twisted nipple rings and faded Obama campaign buttons, bases of shattered toilet bowls still bolted to face away from Mecca next to popped air bubble soles still claiming victory for Nike, they will be wandering, what was is that destroyed this civilization?

From Meccania to Atlantis – Part 3: From Encirclement to Breakout

The night that changed the world

This serial essay started with the assumption that Barack Hussein Obama’s election as the 44th President of the United States would accelerate the creation of a multicultural supra-state encompassing all the countries founded and developed by whites. This entity, that I called Meccania, would be an ideological extension of the European Union, suppressing and diluting its white majority, its original civilization and its civic freedoms while force-flooding its territories with ever more black, brown and Muslim minorities, and increasing state control over all areas of life.

From Meccania to Atlantis – Part 2: From the Clenched Fist to the Raised Middle Finger

The sentry’s challenge

Qui vive is the French sentry’s challenge, the equivalent of “Who goes there?” Except, the literal meaning of qui vive conveys the timeless common sense of the French peasant who puts his trust only in blood ties, deeds to land, and in gold coins in a jar under the plum tree. For qui vive means “Who moves there?” but also “Who lives?”

He lives who is on the alert. But we have been dedicated somnambulists for 40 years now.

From Meccania to Atlantis – Part 1: The March of the Body Snatchers

From the desk of Takuan Seiyo on Tue, 2008-10-28 00:14

Current events have been begging for direct, pragmatic commentary. This serial essay is therefore cutting into the “Empire of Yin” series, which is more philosophical. Apology to my long-suffering readers. “Empire” will resume in a few weeks.

European Commissioners opine that “Immigration Is Moral Necessity” and “Islam Is Welcome.” A French President predicts that “Arabic Is the Language of the Future.” A Moroccan becomes Mayor of Rotterdam. Europeans who wish to assert their ethnic identity and interests versus those of aliens are roughed up.

5 Nations Forge a Climate Deal, but Many Goals Remain Unmet

5 Nations Forge a Climate Deal, but Many Goals Remain Unmet

Climate Deal Announced, but Falls Short of Expectations

Leaders here concluded a climate change deal on Friday that the Obama administration called “meaningful” but that falls short of even the modest expectations for the summit meeting here.


EXCLUSIVE – British Peer: Copenhagen Summit Has Established A World Government

Amid all the mainstream media reports of the talks in Copenhagen “limping” to a close and having failed, Lord Christopher Monckton, reporting from the summit, has stated that the only goal of the conference was to implement the framework and the funding for a world government – which he asserts has been achieved.

Barton: We Won’t Let Obama Destroy American Jobs For “Some Esoteric Environmental Benefit 100 Years From Now”

As President Barack Obama labored behind closed doors to break a deadlock over efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions, Republicans from the U.S. Congress were outside those meetings urging him not to bother.


Obama Forced To Address Climate Skepticism In Bad Tempered Tantrum

A visibly frustrated President Barack Obama was forced to address climate skepticism during his ill-tempered tantrum today in Copenhagen, desperately claiming that man-made climate change was “not fiction,” a view not shared by the majority of Americans he has failed to represent as he attempts to ram through a huge transfer of wealth to the new world order.


Final Copenhagen Text Includes Global Transaction Tax

The final Copenhagen draft agreement which was hammered out in the early hours of Friday morning includes provisions for a global tax on financial transactions that will be paid directly to the World Bank, as President Obama prepares to bypass Congress by approving a massive transfer of wealth from America into globalist hands.

The agreement addresses many of the issues that leaders came here to settle. But it has left many of the participants in the climate talks unhappy, from the Europeans, who now have the only binding carbon control regime in the world, to the delegates from the poorest nations, who objected to being left out of the critical negotiations.

By the early hours of Saturday, representatives of the 193 countries who have negotiated here for nearly two weeks had not yet approved the deal and there were signs they might not. But Mr. Obama, who left before the conference considered the accord because of a major storm descending on Washington, noted that the agreement was merely a political statement and not a legally binding treaty and might not need ratification by the entire conference.

The three-page accord that Mr. Obama negotiated with the leaders of China, India, Brazil and South Africa and then presented to the conference did not meet even the modest expectations that leaders set for this meeting, notably by failing to set a 2010 goal for reaching a binding international treaty to seal the provisions of the accord.

Nor does the plan firmly commit the industrialized nations or the developing nations to firm targets for midterm or long-term greenhouse gas emissions reductions. The accord is nonetheless significant in that it codifies the commitments of individual nations to act on their own to tackle global warming.

“For the first time in history,” Mr. Obama said, “all major economies have come together to accept their responsibility to take action to confront the threat of climate change.”

The accord provides a system for monitoring and reporting progress toward those national pollution-reduction goals, a compromise on an issue over which China bargained hard. It calls for hundreds of billions of dollars to flow from wealthy nations to those countries most vulnerable to a changing climate. And it sets a goal of limiting the global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels by 2050, implying deep cuts in climate-altering emissions over the next four decades.

But it was an equivocal agreement that was, to many, a disappointing conclusion to a two-year process that had the goal of producing a comprehensive and enforceable action plan for addressing dangerous changes to the global climate. The messy compromise mirrored the chaotic nature of the conference, which virtually all participants said had been badly organized and run.

In a news conference, Mr. Obama said the accord was only a tentative start down a long road.

“This progress did not come easily,” he said, “and we know that this progress alone is not enough.”

The accord sets no goal for concluding a binding international treaty, which leaves the implementation of its provisions uncertain. It is likely to undergo many months, perhaps years, of additional negotiations before it emerges in any internationally enforceable form.

Mr. Obama said before he left Copenhagen that he was confident that a final accord would be reached here. He looked weary and his eyes were bloodshot as he left the conference center for his motorcade to the airport.

Some environmental groups gave a cautious nod of approval to the agreement as a good start.

“The world’s nations have come together and concluded a historic — if incomplete — agreement to begin tackling global warming,” said Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club. “Tonight’s announcement is but a first step and much work remains to be done in the days and months ahead in order to seal a final international climate deal that is fair, binding and ambitious. It is imperative that negotiations resume as soon as possible.”

Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and lead author of the Senate’s climate change bill, said the accord would drive the Congress to pass climate change legislation early next year.

“This can be a catalyzing moment,” he said. “President Obama’s hands-on engagement broke through the bickering and sets the stage for a final deal and for Senate passage this spring of major legislation at home.”

But there were serious rumblings of discontent that could yet scuttle the deal.

Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping, a Sudanese diplomat who has been representing the Group of 77 developing countries, denounced the accord.

“The developed countries have decided that damage to developing countries is acceptable,” he told reporters, saying that the 2-degree target would “result in massive devastation to Africa and small island states.” He and many other representatives of the most vulnerable countries wanted a target of 1.5 degrees.

“Today’s events, which really are a continuation of the history of the negotiations for the last two years, represent the worst development in climate change negotiations in history,” Mr. Di-Aping said.

Mr. Obama’s announcement came late in a day that began with his 11-minute address to world leaders shortly after noon, and that was filled with brinksmanship and 11th-hour negotiations. Mr. Obama, whose speech included remarks that appeared pointed at China’s resistance to mechanisms for monitoring emissions reductions, met privately with Prime Minister Wen Jiabao afterward. But Mr. Wen did not attend two smaller, impromptu meetings during the day that Mr. Obama and United States officials conducted with the leaders of other world powers, an apparent snub that infuriated administration officials and their European counterparts.

The deal eventually came together after a dramatic moment in which Mr. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton burst into a meeting of the Chinese, Indian and Brazilian leaders, according to senior administration officials. Mr. Obama said he did not want them negotiating in secret.

The intrusion led to new talks that cemented central terms of the deal, American officials said.

Sergio Serra, Brazil’s senior climate negotiator here, confirmed that Mr. Obama had joined a meeting of Brazilian, Indian, Chinese and other officials, although he did not say that Mr. Obama walked in uninvited.

“After several discussions had taken place, they were joined by President Barack Obama,” Mr. Serra said. “Several important decisions were taken — not a few due to Brazilian mediation — that we hope will bring a result, if not what we expected, that may be a way of salvaging something and pave the way to another meeting or series of meetings to get the full result of this proceeding.”

Jian Xiaoyan, a press officer with the Chinese government, said there was no one available to comment Friday night.

The agreement apparently grew out of a document that was being edited by high-ranking officials from some two dozen countries throughout the day. But many specifics that were included in earlier versions were excised in the document left on the table when Mr. Obama made his announcement, and many parties considered it at best a work in progress. The agreement contains several enumerated points asserting a general commitment to the idea that “climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time” and asserts that “deep cuts” in global emissions were required.

In at least one earlier version, the deal included a collective agreement among nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2050 — with developed nations pledging as a bloc to reduce emissions by 80 percent over the same period. Those numbers were no longer in the version circulated after Mr. Obama’s announcement.

Also dropped from earlier drafts was language calling for a binding accord “as soon as possible,” and no later than at the next meeting of the parties, in Mexico City next November. The deal presented Friday evening said only that the agreement should be reviewed and put in place by 2015.

The document does lay out a framework for verification of emissions commitments by developing countries and for establishing a “high-level panel” to assess financial contributions by rich nations to help poor countries adapt to climate change and limit their emissions.

Many of the specifics remained to be negotiated, however.

Mr. Serra, the Brazilian diplomat, said that the process left many alienated, particularly the smaller countries that have little influence in a major international negotiation. Many involved in the process here suggested this would be the last time that 193 nations would gather in this way to negotiate such a complex accord.

“Certain groups like G-77 are not happy when a few people make decisions,” Mr. Serra said. “It’s not an inclusive exercise. Perhaps it can’t be.”
