Diversity Vs. Halloween—

Can Your Neighborhood Pass

The Trick-Or-Treat Test?

http://www.vdare.com/articles/diversity-vs-halloween-can-your-neighborhood-pass-the-trick-or-treat-test

It’s fitting that Ray Bradbury, the author of the acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451, considered his most important work a children’s story. Called The Halloween Tree, Bradbury’s story is a glorification of Halloween and a journey through the origins and traditions of the festival he considers is the most important celebrated in America.

More importantly, his story is a celebration of an American nation that once existed. Just like the hopeless liberals from Prairie Home Companion on NPR who celebrate a culture that is actively being demographically overwhelmed, Bradbury’s story celebrates a people—and their unique traditions—who built the kind of communities that, as Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam laments, racial and religious diversity helps make extinct.

The opening lines of The Halloween Tree (it was made into a cartoon, (watch it here) narrated by Bradbury himself) are a celebration of the historic majority population of America:

“It was a small town by a small river and a small lake in a small northern part of a Midwest state. There wasn’t so much wilderness around that you couldn’t see the town. On the other hand, there wasn’t so much town around that you couldn’t see and feel and touch the wilderness. The town was full of fences to walk on and sidewalks to skate on and the muted cries and laughter of boys and girls full of costume dreams and pumpkin spirits, preparing for the greatest night of the year, better than Easter, better than Christmas—Halloween.”

The story celebrates Trick or Treating—that American tradition which now identifies whether or not you live in a safe community where parents feel comfortable sending their kids out into the night to collect candy from their neighbors.

Bradbury’s book was written to help young children understand the traditions and history of Halloween so that they could appreciate why they dressed up as hosts, mummies, skeletons, etc. Now, as so many communities across the nation have parents who bowl alone, having a book dedicated to extolling the virtues of Trick or Treating when the communities across America look radically different from when Bradbury wrote his book in 1972 seems like an anachronism.

How many parents live in cities where they don’t feel safe sending their kids out into the night to Trick or Treat? Well, if you are a Stuff White People Like white person living in a gentrified neighborhood in Washington DC, Atlanta, or New York, perhaps you throw exclusive parties for your children where just you and your other friends’ children (some toting Sandra Bullock-worthy accessories) gather to celebrate Halloween.

To test the true health, strength and vitality of your neighborhood (and by extension, city), ask yourself how many Trick or Treaters you get on Halloween? Are the streets full of young people dressed in fantasy costumes, walking from house to house asking for candy?

Remember, Trick or Treating is truly a celebration of community, and if the houses around you are adorned in Halloween decorations in anticipation of ghoulish revelers, you probably live in a city with an excellent school system (i.e. an almost all-white school system).

For as Putnam stated in his famous book Bowling Alone, diversity isn’t just a weakness, but a form of social cohesion suicide. As Pat Buchanan wrote in 2007

“After 30,000 interviews, Putnam concludes and reports, against his own progressive convictions, that ethnic and racial diversity can be devastating to communities and destructive of community values.

“The greater the diversity the greater the distrust, says Putnam. In racially and ethnically mixed communities, not only do people not trust strangers, they do not even trust their own kind. They withdraw into themselves, they support community activity less, they vote less.

“People living in ethnically diverse settings appear to ‘hunker down,’ that is, to pull in like a turtle,” writes Putnam.

They tend to “withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television.”

Writes columnist John Leo, “Putnam adds a crushing footnote: His findings ‘may underestimate the real effect of diversity on social withdrawal.’”

It’s a shame that Putnam hasn’t looked at Trick or Treating as the ultimate embodiment of whether or not a neighborhood is safe or not; of whether or not a city is one that young parents should invest in purchasing a house. Having the trust in your neighbors that you can safely send your children out into the night to procure treats with minimal danger is a way to qualify the true value of your home and a way to gauge the type of relationships they will be able to make.

Your real estate agent can’t divulge any racial information and demographics on your neighbors, but if you want to buy a new home then you should just watch how Halloween unfolds in the town you are considering moving into. This is a great way to test Putnam’s findings on diversity.

Recently, the local Fox affiliate out of Milwaukee reported that city has the “dubious honor of being the most segregated in America.” Mind you, this is the same city where in August scores of black people pulled white people from their cars and beat them at the Wisconsin State Fair. It’s also one of the more dangerous cities with high levels of black crime, showing that the so-called “dubious honor” is more aptly titled “common sense residential patterns for safe living.”

Hilariously, resident Black Journalism Agitator of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Eugene Kane [Email him]  wrote a column bemoaning the lack of Trick or Treating opportunities for black children in majority black neighborhoods (wait, wasn’t it diverse cities that lack social connections? Shouldn’t a homogenous black neighborhood be safe? Doesn’t that run counter to Putnam’s findings?):

“For some, the only real trick about Halloween is trying to keep it a treat for young children in bad neighborhoods.

This time of year in Milwaukee, I always think about thousands of kids who live in less-than-perfect areas of the city where drug dealing, gangbanging and handgun violence are common events.

In these neighborhoods, dressing up as a ghost or fireman and going house to house in search of candy isn’t really feasible.

Or advisable.

….

Adriane Griffin, program specialist at Northcott, said she understood the need to provide a safe trick-or-treat environment for children in the inner city.

“For some parents, they don’t know if the house they’re sending their children to is a dope house or not,” she said.

“I know I wouldn’t want my child just going up to some of these houses.”

Griffin said some neighborhoods in the African-American community were in such high-crime areas that Halloween usually went unacknowledged.

“In some parts of the community, we just don’t feel comfortable opening our doors anymore,” Griffin said. “That’s too bad.”

I started to realize how different Halloween is for inner city kids in Milwaukee a few years ago after hearing from suburbanites who wanted to know why so many black kids were showing up at their doors asking for candy.

As it turned out, a local church had been giving kids rides out to the suburbs for years so they would be safe during trick-or-treating.”

Trick-or-treat scares up fears in inner city, October 26, 2011

Who knows? Soon the Federal government—already pros at busing students to create an acceptable racial balance in schools—might decide that Trick or Treating is a sign of disparate impact, since few, if any, all-black neighborhoods are safe for black children to go out at night in. (The same goes for Hispanic children. )

Those cities with high rates of volunteerism seem to provide a window into the areas where Halloween flourishes, which might explain why neighborhoods that are majority black send their kids into majority white neighborhoods to garner treats. Zillow.com, a popular real-estate Web site, took on the task of identifying the top 20 cities for Trick or Treating and came out with an interesting list:

“We theorized that homes in more expensive neighborhoods would give out bigger, better candy. However, wealthy neighborhoods are not always the best for harvesting the most Halloween candy. For parents and kids alike, the walkability and density of a neighborhood is key to covering the most ground, in the fastest time, to collect the most candy. Safety, of course, is also a primary concern for parents on Halloween, thus adding crime data to the Index was a no-brainer.”

Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Washington DC, Chicago, Milwaukee, Phoenix and San Diego are on the list, though Zillow then breaks down the data further offering the top five neighborhoods to Trick or Treat in.

In every major city, gentrification is underway. SWPL whites have created enclaves that ward off undesirable elements from contaminating their sociological experiments. Zillow profiles the top neighborhoods in Atlanta to Trick or Treat and, trust us; these are some of the whitest areas in the city:

Top 5 Atlanta Neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in 2010

  1. Virginia Highland
  2. Morningside / Lenox Park
  3. Inman Park
  4. Brookhaven
  5. Garden Hills

Odd that the Atlanta neighborhoods labeled the most dangerous in America recently aren’t environs profiled by Zillow as highly conducive locals for collecting candy.

The 2011 list of top cities to Trick or Treat in from Zillow has selected San Francisco as the top place for children to collect candy. But looking further at the data, the top candy neighborhoods are virtually all-white, with Presidio Heights leading the list.

Remember those Flickr Maps that showed how segregated American cities really are? According to Business Insider’s list of the Top 22 most segregated cities in America, nearly three-quarters ’s of Zillow’s best cities to Trick or Treat are those with a distinct and clear racial divide.

Breaking down the data, none of the top neighborhoods for Trick or Treating in Zillow’s Top 20 list are in areas of these cities that are majority non-white.he best places to Trick or Treat in America are in neighborhoods that still reflect the values, culture, and racial composition of the one that Ray Bradbury wrote about in The Halloween Tree.

To paraphrase Eugene Kane, with the demographic tsunami overwhelmingly the traditional American majority population (capsizing it by 2040), this is kind of scary for those who desire seeing the tradition of trick or treating—the hallmark of an actual vibrant, safe, and connected community—endure. If it can’t even transpire in majority black communities now, what hope does Trick or Treating have to continue when America continues to import another Third World population into its midst?

Who knows? “That small town, by a small river and a small lake” that Bradbury canonized in The Halloween Tree might, in 2025 America, be a hidden all-white town like the one in M. Night Shyamalan’ s 2004 film The Village—the movie where white families erect a city to escape high rates of crime and violence so they can  live peacefully. Sounds like the suburbs of most major cities, doesn’t it?

In this type of town, the tradition of Halloween and the true test of strength for a community—trick or treating—can long endure.

Do They Know Its Halloween in Prince George’s County?

You won’t see this in all-Black cities

Check out VDARE for a huge article on Diversity and Trick-or-Treating that I wrote. Understand that Robert Putnam’s study (which shows a correlation between more ethnic diversity driving down community trust) underestimates the impact of diversity, because homogeneous Black enclaves are deficient in trust.

Across the nation, Black children who reside in Black Undertow cities and counties are bused into all-white enclaves to Trick-or-Treat in safe environments, where parents do not neglect nor rely on the state to rear their children.
Thus, Putnam’s study needs a caveat: homogeneous Black communities run counter to Putnam’s findings that diversity destroys the social fabric of a city; the greater the percentage of Black people in a municipality, the more atomized and unsafe the environment.
The Washington Post has just published findings that the all-white enclave is a thing of the past, inadvertently putting the final nail in the coffin of Trick-or-Treating:

Today their Silver Spring community of Hillandale is home to people of every race and ethnicity — the epitome of what one sociologist calls “global neighborhoods” that are upending long-standing patterns of residential segregation.

Around the region and across the country, the archetypal all-white neighborhood is vanishing with remarkable speed. In many places, the phenomenon is not being driven by African Americans moving to the suburbs. Instead, it is primarily the result of the nation’s soaring number of Hispanics and Asians, many of whom are immigrants.

The result has been the emergence of neighborhoods, from San Diego to Denver to Miami, that are more diverse than at any time in American history.

As the nation barrels toward the day, just three decades from now, when non-Hispanic whites are expected to be a minority, these global neighborhoods have already begun remaking the American social fabric in significant ways. Their creation and impact have been especially pronounced in the Washington area, where minorities are now the majority.

A Washington Post analysis of 2010 Census data shows a precipitous decline in the number of the region’s census tracts, areas of roughly 2,000 households, where more than 85 percent of the residents are of the same race or ethnicity — what many demographers would consider a segregated neighborhood.

In the District, just one in three neighborhoods is highly segregated, the Post analysis found. A decade ago, more than half were.

So what happens to those communities that are classified as Black enclaves? Well, Black kids vying for initiation into gangs and high levels of Black crime make Trick-or-Treating (and the ability to create lasting relationship and build communities) an impossibility.

Majority Black cities across the country rely on the generosity of non-profit organization and church organizations to bus their children into all-white enclaves for safe Trick-or-Treating. In the “bad” (read Black parts) of Jacksonville, attempts have been made to make the Halloween tradition safe.
Doesn’t this run counter to Putnam’s study, that the more homogeneous the community the greater the trust? All-white enclaves don’t require such programs, but all-Black cities do.
Which brings us to Prince George’s County, that all-Black enclave that his home to some of the highest foreclosure rates (and a horrible school system and high crime rate) that The Washington Post featured as an aberration in the increasingly diverse world.
Why? Because non-Black people don’t want to live there; it isn’t safe:

From Loudoun to Fairfax to Montgomery, communities that are growing are also growing more integrated, with people of every race and ethnicity living side by side. Prince George’s stands virtually alone as a place that is gaining population yet has an increasing number of residents living in neighborhoods that are overwhelmingly one race — in this case, African American. 

A Washington Post analysis of census data shows that the number of Prince George’s neighborhoods where more than 85 percent of residents are the same race or ethnicity — what demographers consider a high level of segregation — has inched up, from 25 percent in 1990 to 27 percent last year. 

Though the increase is small, any uptick is startling in comparison with everywhere else in the region. While the all-white neighborhood has all but disappeared from Northern Virginia, Montgomery and the District, the all-black neighborhood is on the rise in Prince George’s.
Yet the Prince George’s experience also illustrates the limits of integration. Most blacks and whites still live in separate neighborhoods, despite the dismantling of legal segregation decades ago.

Today, integration has moved beyond black and white. Integrated neighborhoods often are created when Asians and Hispanics move into predominantly white neighborhoods, said John Logan, a Brown University sociologist who has studied segregation patterns for 30 years. He says these “global neighborhoods” pave the way for more blacks to move into a community without triggering white flight.

In the Washington region, 90 percent of whites still live in neighborhoods where they are a majority or the largest group. Many whites remain unwilling to buy houses in black neighborhoods, Logan said, and so are most Asians. 

“It’s going to be a long, long time before that disappears,” he said.

White exodus
 
Some whites with deep roots in Prince George’s say they sense that the white exodus from the county is largely over and that Hispanics have helped make the county feel more diverse than ever.

Maryland state Del. Justin D. Ross (D) and his wife are raising four young children in Hyattsville, not far from the University of Maryland in an area that has long attracted a mix of people. His two oldest children attend University Park Elementary School, where the student body is 30 percent black, 30 percent Hispanic, 26 percent white and 8 percent Asian.

“We’re giving [our children] a competitive advantage in a real world that will look much different than the one my parents grew up in,” said Ross, 35, who is white and grew up in Prince George’s.

But most white longtime residents have friends and neighbors who have left the county and made little secret of why, said several who met on a recent afternoon to discuss white flight and diversity.

“A lot of white people don’t want to live around black people. It’s crazy, I know,” said John Petro, a developer who lives in a predominantly black subdivision in Bowie and has no intention of moving away. 

“They don’t always say ‘black,’ ” said Jane Eagen Dodd, a retired schoolteacher who lives in an Upper Marlboro community with a rich mix of people from different backgrounds. “They say, ‘The county is changing.’ ”

It’s crazy? Hmm… in virtually every major city in America that has a high population of Black people, nearly all-white suburbs have been created. It would be crazy if it were only one city; that it is EVERY city where Black and white people interact that has seen an exodus of the latter (with the former then in charge of a city that they inevitably see collapse) means it is definitely NOT CRAZY!

So what is Trick-or-Treating like in Prince George’s County, where crime is a huge problem (thus, disproving Putnam’s study on how communities that are homogeneous are much better than the diverse cities)?

How many of the kids in Prince George’s County are bused into the dwindling few all-white enclaves around D.C.?

The Washington Post can brag about Prince George’s County offering Black people a chance to be around “Black role models” while gloating about the end of all-white enclaves.  But where will Black kids be able to Trick-or-Treat when these all-white enclaves disappear?

Halloween is the one night of the year where an entire community leaves their homes and interacts with each other. Interesting that Putnam’s study on how racial diversity erodes community trust needs a caveat: the greater the percentage of Black people in a community (even if it is an all-Black enclave), the less the community trust.

WE ARE NOT THE SAME!!!!!

Black and Latino Males Must Leave White nations across the Earth, return home while we still let you! This also goes for you mongoloids, although you do not murder whites at the same rates as blacks and Latinos, it does not mean you will continue to behave once your numbers are high enough, so you got to go as well!

14 year old stabbed to death by black male.

From ABC Chicago…

Police say the reward has been increased for information in the stabbing death of a 14-year-old in southwest suburban Indian Head Park.

As of Sunday afternoon, a $30,500 reward was being offered for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Kelli O’Laughlin, according to the Village of Indian Head Park website. On Saturday, an anonymous resident added $10,000 to the reward.

Police have also set up a tip line at 708-246-4534.

Despite some reports, police say there is no one in custody.

On Saturday afternoon, authorities confirmed that a man questioned following the slaying of the 14-year-old is being held on a warrant in connection with a separate burglary spree that happened over the summer in the southwestern suburb. While some reports claim the suspect is under investigation in connection with the teen’s slaying, Indian Head Police Chief Frank Alonzo tells ABC7 they’re unrelated.

“There is somebody in custody but it’s for a different incident,” Alonzo said.

Detectives from the south suburban Major Crimes Task Force joined the investigation as police released a sketch of a man seen walking near the area after the murder. They want to question him. Investigators were circulating copies of the sketch Friday night to drivers in the area. They also released pictures of gold coins that are similar to the ones that are now missing from the victim’s home.

 

Racially motivated murder by illegal immigrant.

Three illegal aliens approached a 45 year old white female in the parking lot of a Walmart and one of them decided to stab her to death for the fun of it. The media is calling it a “random act.”

From TheDailyNews.com

An illegal alien from Honduras was charged with murder for the vicious stabbing death of a shopper in the Wal-Mart parking lot Sunday night, a murder that appeared to be a random act, Orleans County Sheriff Scott Hess said.

Luis A. Rodriguez-Flamenco was arrested after an all-night search by numerous police agencies. He was arraigned in Town Court and committed to Orleans County Jail without bail.

Flamenco, 24, is accused of repeatedly stabbing Kathleen I. Byham, 45.

Byham was shopping alone and had just left the store when she was approached by three men as she got to her car about 7 p.m.

‘‘She suffered multiple stab wounds to the torso,’’ Hess said. ‘‘She was shopping by herself and was not with any of the three men.’’

Byham, of Albion, was transported to Medina Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 7:40 p.m.

Several people witnessed the attack and were able to give police a description of the men, who took off running east toward the village of Albion.

Two of the men were caught in separate homes in the village, about 90 minutes after the attack, Hess said.

‘‘We were able to locate them based on information we received,’’ he said.

The two men who were with Flamenco did not actively participate in the murder have not been charged. Hess said the two are illegal immigrants from Mexico and both have been turned over to U.S. Border Patrol.

 

 

 

The New Right and What It Can Offer the Rest of the World

The New Right and What It Can Offer the Rest of the World

http://www.alternativeright.com/main/blogs/untimely-observations/the-new-right-and-what-it-can-offer-the-rest-of-the-world/

The term Nationalism—as it is known outside of the West—is mostly synonymous with the anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist sentiments of the 19th and 20th century, that is to say Nationalism from the perspective of an Asian, African, Middle Easterner or Latin American is not merely an affirmation of ethnic and cultural identity, but also the rejection of White colonial or imperial authority, and to a certain degree, white culture.

However, there is also a paradox involved in the sense that the development of modern economic, technological and, to a lesser extent, political institutions are also synonymous with the concept of Westernization. For if truth be told, the White/Western World invented most of what people would now call modernity. In other words, the White/Western World was the template for what the rest of the world wanted to be, despite negative attitudes to Western projections of power.

So when white people created modern society, the rest of the world wanted copies of those societies for themselves. When white people embrace “Democracy,” the rest of the World sort of embraced “Democracy.” When white people created the internet, cars, and the bourgeois lifestyle, the rest of the world also adopted the internet, cars, and the bourgeois lifestyle. And when white people embraced multiculturalism and mass immigration, the rest of the world em . . . eh . . . we’re still deliberating that one.

So Nationalism in the traditional sense of the word, as perceived by a person of a non-western background, like myself, is something which is intertwined with both the rejection of the West, and the paradoxical imitation of the intellectual and technological achievements of the West.

I call this the “Go Home Yankee, And Take Me With You” Syndrome.

Now, there are many accounts on how this particular phrase developed here in the Philippines, but the most common among them was that back in the nineties, one of the protesters of Uncle Sam’s foreign policy was holding up a sign that said, “Go Home Yankee and Take Me With You.” And though it was taken to be a joke, it’s implications are much more serious than what some people think.

Of course, the Philippines is not the only country to have this kind of mentality. This type of intellectual dissociation exists among different nations all over the world, particularly in relation to the Western World. What this means, in my estimations, is that the concept of nationalism, which most non-white nations still adhere to, is largely outdated and is incapable of meeting challenges that the intellectual and economic proponents of globalism and modern soft-marxist liberalism put forth.

So what I am saying is that what is happening in the West (e.g. Hate Crime Legislation, Political Correctness, Deindustrialization, Mass Immigration and Multiculturalism) is a prelude to what may happen to the rest of the world. Already there are small indications that the rest of the world may also end up following the same path as the Western World if present trends continue.

The value of the New Right in both the US as well as in Europe is that it offers a serious intellectual critique of the modern zeitgeist which goes beyond the post-nationalist paradigm. So even if the goal of these movements is the preservation of the white race, the restoration of national sovereignity in Western Nations and an intellectual revolt against the established intellectual dogma, it also offers the intellectual template for many non-white nations to resist the globalist agenda, and to offer new ideas in relation to government and society.

And there is a need for such a template. Most non-white opposition to the international establishment is framed in the context anti-globalization, cultural and linguistic preservation, environmental protection, opposition to economic exploitation or simply, opposition to neo-liberalism. However, this opposition is expressed in a much different context than the traditional left/right dichotomy found in Western nations. For one thing, the metapolitical and historical narrative of the rest of the world is radically different from that of the West.

Despite these differences however, most of non-white opposition to ideas of the internationalist/globalist left lack the sophistication and complexity of New Right thinkers as well as their predecessors. That is not to say that there are no non-white thinkers who have put a lot of time or effort in opposing the Internationalist aspirations of the world’s various political, economic and intellectual elites.

However, what the New Right can offer is a different set of perspectives and alternatives. For even though identifying problems are easy, the New Right in the West is on ground zero of the globalist/internationalist project, and therefore have had more time forming their metapolitical and ideological solutions.

At this time, it’s impossible to tell just how many non-whites throughout the rest of world are aware of the ideas and positions of people like, Alain De Benoist, Tomislav Sunic, Joe Sobran, Pat Buchanan, Paul Gottfried, Alexander Dugin, etc . . . So even though a certain degree of commonality exists, the problem remains that people in the rest of the world are not aware of the existence of the New Right.

This problem – as I percieve it – is largely because the New Right in the West expresses itself in terms of pursuing and defending the rights of white and western nations. This is, of course, a good thing. However, unlike the Right, the Left (and this includes those the global capitalist Left) express themselves not in terms of any single group’s interests, but of humanity as a whole. And although the Left has had a terrible record in representing humanity’s interests, the fact remains that the Right is typically lacks an the percieved openess of their opponents. One need not look farther than the rhetoric of the Occupy Wallstreet Protests.

So now the question is how can the ideas of the New Right be shared with the rest of the world?

In my view, there are certain prerequisites which have to be in place before Non-White Nationalists can begin adopting New Right ideas into the context of their respective nations.

First, there needs to be organization. Historically speaking, anti-colonial revolution has been organized by an intellectual elite which expressed and translate Western Nationalist (and Enlightenment) Ideas into the context of their own respective nations and peoples. So in order for non-whites to adopt the metapolitical discourse of the New Right, a receptive intellectual community from non-white countries must first be found and organized.

Second, there needs to be an incentive for Non-whites to adopt New Right Ideas. A good example of this would be to present political economic systems which can act as an alternative to the old capitalist/socialist dichotomy. I am confident that economic systems commonly associated with the right, such as Distributism, Productionism, Social Credit and Localized Economics, will be quite welcome to the rest of the world, and not just in the US and Europe.

Distributism, for example, may have its limitations as a practical economic system in industrialized societies, but it can be reasonably adapted to the needs of third world nations, most of which are still agrarian or semi-agrarian. If packaged correctly, the political economic ideas of people like, Hillaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterson, could be used as a way to introduce other New Right thinkers to the rest of the world.

Third,  there needs to be a paradigm shift wherein Non-whites will recognize that the existing zeitgeist is not about a powerful country oppressing smaller and poor countries, but about powerful elites in one country working with receptive powerful elites in another country to pursue policies which are designed to exploit their respective nations.

The same may also be said among those who advocate white preservation in Western nations. The average peasant in Guatemala, India or the Philippines does not desire the destruction or the extermination of Western Nations. I would even hazzard to guess that some of them will oppose it.

At the moment, there are still a lot of people throughout the world who believe that Western Governments are engaging in wars as well as unfair economic and diplomatic practices on behalf of White/Western peoples. For those who are familiar with the problems faced in the West, that is obviously untrue.

Fourth, in order for Non-whites who adopt these ideas to make an impact, they need to be a visible and recognizable group with the potential to influence public discourse. And it doesn’t matter how the media will spin this type of news. As long as people recognize that there are non-whites throughout the world who are willing to adopt New Right ideas, it can cause a lot of people to rethink certain positions.

So having said all that, the ideas of the new-right being dessiminated to the rest of the world offers many possible implications:

Leftist Identity Will Be Put Into Crisis—What we have to remember about the left is that it draws its identity partly upon designated victim groups (e.g. women, homosexuals, minorities, labor advocates, environmental issues, etc . . . ). So if a significant and visible group of non-whites throughout the world were to adopt ideas which are rooted from authors and thinkers from “extremist right wing” groups in the west, it will force the leftists to reevaluate their ideological clientele in a way which can have serious and far reaching changes in their ideology.

The Establishment Will Be Forced to Attack Non-Whites Who Adopt New Right Ideas—I’m sure that some people have heard the terms Twinkie and Oreo, both of which are perjoratives used specifically to demonize a person of Asian or African ethnicity (respectively) adopting perceived conservative, right-wing, pro-white or pro-western positions. If the ideas of the New Right were to become popular in non-white nations, the Western mainstream media will be forced to think up ways to demonize these kinds of non-whites.

Non-White Mass Immigration Will Be Put Into A New Context—This is where it gets a little tricky. Obviously, most of the people who immigrate into the West do so, because they want better jobs and a better life, consequences be damned. If they announce their love for the “old country,” it’s typically in a very superficial way. After all, they didn’t love their country enough to stay in it.

If cultural, ethnic and racial preservation becomes adopted in unbiased way, and if non-whites recognize certain facts about the goals and incentives which drive global capitalism and neo-liberalism, they will also need to recognize that mass immigration into Western Nations as something to be opposed in principle. Such a recognition can potentially cause friction among non-whites whose sensibilities are more favorable to Leftist internationalism and non-whites who are geniunely nationalistic.

The Adoption of New Right Ideas Will Give Legitimacy to the New Right Movement in the West—For quite a long time now, right wing movements in the west—in whatever form they take—are portrayed as hate-filled reactionaries. So it goes without saying that if non-whites were to adopt the ideas of the New Right, they will give their white counterparts a certain degree of legitimacy, not to mention devalue the misconception that Right wing movements in the West are inherently anti-non-white.

New Economic Systems—The ideas of Distributism, Social Credit, Productionism and other Third Postition Economic ideas can potentially offer solutions to the poverty of the Third World. Of course, getting tangible results will take a while, but what matters here is the perception that the New Right offers ideas which are potentially beneficial to the rest of the world.

There are other implications, but I will leave that for people to ponder, but as the old concept of nationalism (e.g. economic independence, anti-colonialism, nativism) is replaced by post-nationalist globalism, a new form of nationalism will become necessary, one which needs to be rooted in ideas which transcend the old left-right divide, and which offers actual independence of culture and of mind, as opposed to the negative identities used by old forms of nationalism, many of which were based on enlightenment ideals.

And this is what I like about the New Right. It is an attempt to change the cultural and moral landscape  as a means of reinvigorating national and ethnic identity. So in my opinion the intellectual revolt of the New Right in the US and in Europe can act as prelude for the rest of the world to rethink itself in relation to modernity and the post-post-colonial world.

So do the various Right-Wing movements in the West have something beneficial to offer to the rest of the World?

In my opinion, they have a lot to offer. And although there may be the lack of a common cause, every true nationalist throughout the world, regardless of his or her background, has common interests to promote a new and radical form of universal nationalism. After all, the Left had been spreading its ideas for centuries now. It’s about time the Right did the same.

Is Europe Waking Up?

Is Europe Waking Up?

Is it finally happening? Are the nations of Europe finally realizing, at the eleventh hour, that they simply cannot allow Europe to become swamped with Third Worlders and Muslims?

The left-wing Guardian newspaper reports that: “France and Italy have thrown down the gauntlet over Europe’s system of passport-free travel, saying a crisis of immigration sparked by the Arab spring was calling into question the borderless regime enjoyed by more than 400 million people in 25 countries. Challenging one of the biggest achievements of European integration of recent decades, Nicolas Sarkozy and Silvio Berlusconi also launched a joint effort to stem immigration and demanded European deportation pacts with the countries of revolutionary north Africa to send new arrivals packing.”

In view of the present condition of both Italy and France, especially the latter, it’s about time somebody came to their senses.

The article notes “The French president and the Italian prime minister, at a summit in Rome, opted to pile the pressure on Brussels and the governments of the other 25 EU states, demanding an in-depth revision of European law regulating the passport-free travel that takes in almost all of the EU with the exception of Britain and Ireland.”

How long will this “in-depth revision” take? How many more millions of swarthy foreigners will pour into Europe while it is being carried out? And most important of all, what, if anything, will be done about the millions of non-assimilable Third World immigrants who are already in European countries?

The article continues “Prompted by the influx to Italy of almost 30,000 immigrants, mainly from Tunisia, in recent months, the two leaders warned that the upheavals in north Africa could swiftly become an out-and-out crisis capable of undermining the trust our fellow citizens place in the free circulation within the Schengen area. The passport-free travel system known as the Schengen regime was agreed by a handful of countries in 1985 and put into practice in 1995. Since then it has been embraced by 22 EU countries as well as Norway, Switzerland and Iceland, but spurned by Britain and Ireland. It is widely seen, along with the euro single currency, as Europe’s signature unification project of recent decades.”

Both of these unification projects need to be deep-sixed. The euro is dragging the few stable and productive economies down with the least stable. While open immigration threatens to destroy Europe for all time.

White Europeans are finally making the connection in their minds between the rising crime, unemployment and filth all around them and all those swarthy foreigners they see on the street.

Cleaning up Europe and restoring its homogeneity will be no easy task. There are sinister forces that are determined to shove more non-Whites into Europe to benefit the more left-wing parties. Lunatic leftists have been brainwashed to think Diversity is some sacred cow that they must all worship. Diversity however is an abomination, that needs to be defeated.

World Population Hits 7 Billion; White Nations at Risk of Extinction

World Population Hits 7 Billion; White Nations at Risk of Extinction

by James Buchanan

The population of the world just reached 7 billion. The Guardian newspaper reports: “The United Nations will warn this week that the world’s population could more than double to 15 billion by the end of this century, putting a catastrophic strain on the planet’s resources unless urgent action is taken to curb growth rates.”

“That figure is likely to shock many experts as it is far higher than many current estimates. A previous UN estimate had expected the world to have more than 10 billion people by 2100… The new figure is contained in a landmark study by the United Nations Population Fund (Unfpa) that will be released this week. The report –The State of World Population 2011 – is being compiled to mark the expected moment this month when somewhere on Earth a person will be born who will take the current world population over the 7 billion mark, and will be released simultaneously in cities across the globe.”

It should be noted that White people are capable of slowing down their population growth without starvation or plagues while the rest of the world apparently cannot. White people also respect environmental laws while Chinese manufacturers seem inclined to coat everything with lead paint.

Most White people will not have children unless they have some success in their lives that gives them hope that they will be able to afford to raise children. This has led to a negative population growth in many White nations because liberals keep flooding White nations with Third World people. This has created a destructive feedback loop in which White people keep having less children due in large part to the problems and taxes that come from invaders from the Third World. Liberal politicians then ignore all these problems and bring in even more illegal aliens, making all these problems worse and further reducing the White birth rate.

The Guardian notes “The Earth has now doubled in population since the 1960s, boosted by high birthrates in Africa, Asia and Latin America as the spread of medicine and better healthcare has seen the mortality rate for young children decline.”

All demographic changes since the 1960s have been a disaster for the White race. We’ve gone from being 90 percent of the US in 1960 to just 66 percent today in the space of two generations. The nations of western Europe have gone from 100 percent White to similar race-mixed proportions, thanks to the efforts of liberals and Zionists, who have been the biggest supporters of non-White immigration into White nations.

White people need to wake up to this problem and fight it. We no longer have the luxury of ignoring it. Just look at the state of California with its non-White majority and its huge illegal alien population. White tax-payers are being burdened to the breaking point with ever-increasing taxes and fees to pay for all the non-Whites.

As recently as the 1980s, students attending the UC (University of California) system only had to pay token tuition fees because the tax revenue from the “Golden State” was more than enough to supply quality higher education for the children of California. Over the last three decades, the tax burden from millions of Third World poor has wiped out the California budget. The previously almost-free UC system now charges almost as much tuition as private colleges. The liberals running the UC school system have allowed in more and more Asians, Arabs and even illegal aliens.

The state government of California mercilessly punishes businesses with increasing taxes and regulations, driving many businesses out of the state. A non-White majority has meant higher taxes, less government services for Whites (like a subsidized university system), hopelessly crowded freeways and a prison system so over-crowded that the courts are ordering a mass release.

All White people should be 100 percent aware that a non-White invasion means life will become much worse for them and their children. If we want to recover the prosperity of the 1960s, we need to change the demographics of America and Europe back to the same demographics as the 1960s, which would be a much more White population.

Free Trade Or Fair Trade?

Free Trade Or Fair Trade?

20 Reasons Why All Americans

Should Be Against

The Insane Trade Policies

Of The Globalists

theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/free-trade-or-fair-trade-20-reasons-why-all-americans-should-be-against-the-insane-trade-policies-of-the-globalists

It is absolutely amazing how many Americans are still convinced that more “free trade” is the answer to our economic problems.  The truth is that there is a vast difference between “free trade” and “fair trade”, and in this article I will prove that all true conservatives and all true liberals should be completely against the insane trade policies of the federal government.  Yes, we will always need to trade with other nations.  Other nations make or have things that we need to trade for.  Balanced trade relationships with other nations that have similar economies and that share similar values can be very beneficial.  For example, our trading relationship with Canada, though not perfect, is generally beneficial to both sides.  However, the United States also has dozens of trading relationships that are highly destructive to the U.S. economy.  There are some predatory nations that are blatantly and openly cheating and everyone can see it.  They are getting away with bloody murder and they are robbing us blind.  The United States of America is being taken advantage of, and as a result thousands of good businesses are being destroyed and millions of good jobs are being lost.  If you are an American and you are in favor of all of the unfair trade that is currently going on, then either you don’t know much about economics or you actually want to see the U.S. economy be destroyed.

Congress has just passed new free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.  The Obama administration has also made “the NAFTA of the Pacific” a very high priority.

Obama says that all of these new trade pacts will create more U.S. jobs.

Well, either Barack Obama is completely ignorant when it comes to economics or else he is lying.

When we merge our economy with the economies of nations where wages are much lower, it is inevitable that large numbers of jobs are going to leave the high wage areas (where we live) and go to areas where wages are much lower.

It also certainly does not help that we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world, that we burden our businesses with mountains of ridiculous regulations,  and that we allow our “trade partners” to give their businesses a huge advantage by openly subsidizing them.

The way that the system is set up now, nearly all U.S. businesses are at a massive, massive disadvantage.  In general, the only businesses that can compete effectively in this environment are the giant corporations that can offshore huge portions of their operations.

If you are a conservative, then there is no way that you should support our current trade policies.  If you are a liberal, then there is no way that you should support our current trade policies.

However, if you are a “George W. Bush Republican” or a “Clinton/Obama Democrat” that believes in globalism and the establishment of a one world economy as part of a “New World Order”, then it would make sense why you would want to see America deindustrialized and brought down to the level of the rest of the world.

But if you are a true conservative or a true liberal, then the following are reasons why you should be horrified by our current trade policies….

#1 Other Nations Openly Manipulate Their Currencies In Order To Gain A Significant Competitive Advantage

For example, China keeps its currency set at a super low level relative to the U.S. dollar.  By doing this, their products are far cheaper than U.S. products, and U.S. businesses cannot compete with them.  This has resulted in the death of large numbers of U.S. businesses and the loss of millions of U.S. jobs.

So just how bad is this problem?  Well, a recent CNN article stated the following….

Critics of China’s policy estimate that the yuan is still undervalued by 25% to 40%, even with the recent rises in value.

The other day the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would impose tariffs on currency manipulators, and China has already retaliated, even though the bill has not become law yet and even though it almost certainly won’t.

China plays hardball.  They love the advantage that they are getting right now and they do not plan on losing it.

#2 Millions Of Good Paying Jobs Have Been Shipped Overseas And They Are Never Coming Back

Our politicians all try to tell us how good they are at creating jobs.

But what is the truth?

The truth is that a total of zero jobs were created last decade.  The following is a quote from a recent article in Washington Monthly….

“If any single number captures the state of the American economy over the last decade, it is zero. That was the net gain in jobs between 1999 and 2009—nada, nil, zip. By painful contrast, from the 1940s through the 1990s, recessions came and went, but no decade ended without at least a 20 percent increase in the number of jobs.”

Last decade we opened up our trade with the rest of the world more than ever before.  But instead of creating jobs it destroyed them.  Our trade deficits exploded and unemployment skyrocketed.

The Economic Policy Institute says that since 2001 America has lost approximately 2.8 million jobs due to our trade deficit with China alone.

So if you are unemployed, that is probably what happened to the job you are supposed to have.

It went overseas and it is not coming back.

#3 America Is Being Deindustrialized At A Blistering Pace Thanks To Globalism

The advocates of “free trade” cannot dispute the cold, hard facts….

*The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

*The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

*If you can believe it, more than 42,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been closed down since 2001.

*Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.

*Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.

#4 (For Conservatives) True Conservatives Should Be Horrified That We Are Being Taken Advantage Of By A Hardcore Communist Nation That Hates Us

Ronald Reagan would have never engaged in “free trade” with the Soviet Union.  The Communist Party is in complete control of China and while we may regard China as a “frenemy”, they really do believe that they will totally defeat us someday.  If you doubt this, just read what the top generals and politicians in China are writing.

It is so incredibly stupid what we are doing.  Our trade relationship with China has enabled the largest communist economy in the world to go from third world status to superpower status.  China is now the second largest economy in the world, and that would have never happened without our help.

A lot of people like to talk about how “capitalist” China is becoming, but the truth is that they have never wavered from their pure belief in communism.  7 of the 10 largest corporations in China are owned by the government.

A host of other corporations in China are very deeply subsidized by the government.

U.S. businesses have a very hard time competing with foreign businesses that are deeply subsidized by their own national governments.

It is called cheating, and we let other countries get away with it.

So our businesses die and their products fill up our store shelves.

#5 We Are Endangering Our National Security By Greatly Enriching Our Biggest Potential Enemies

The biggest threats to the United States are not some goat herders hiding out in the caves of Afghanistan.

The biggest threats to the United States are actually China and Russia.

Conservatives are supposed to be the ones that are so concerned about national security.  But instead of expressing concerns about China, they just keep pushing for more free trade.

As a result, China has been able to become a true global military superpower.

Someday we will deeply, deeply regret that.

#6 China Brazenly Steals Technology From Anyone And Everyone That They Can

China gets away with bloody murder when it comes to stealing technology.  They will do it “legally” if they can, and they will do it in “other ways” if they have to.

At this point, China has invented a whole host of ways to extract technology from any firms that wants to do business in China.

The following is a short excerpt from a recent article on CNN….

Foreign companies are often required to set-up joint ventures with Chinese firms before the can start doing business there. And China is instituting new “indigenous innovation” rules that U.S. companies say force them to transfer their own technology to their Chinese partners.

#7 We Should Never Trade With Any Nation That Has A “One Child” Policy

China has a very strict “one child policy” which should be absolutely abhorrent to all Americans.

Most Americans have no idea what is really going on over in China.  The following is from a recent article in the Epoch Times….

Pregnant women lacking birth permits are hunted down like criminals by population planning police in China and forcibly aborted.

All over China, mobile abortion vans are used to help enforce the one child policy.  What women in China must endure is absolutely sickening, and this kind of behavior should never be accepted in the global community.

But instead of penalizing China, we reward them for this behavior.  They even get awards at the United Nations for it.

Look, conservatives are supposed to be pro-life.  If you are a social conservative, then it goes against everything that you believe to support trade with China.

You can support trade with China if you want, but then don’t even try to call yourself “pro-life” again.

We should never trade with any nation that has a “one child policy”.  Such a policy is against everything that America is supposed to stand for.

#8 Our Horrendous Trade Imbalance Has Allowed Other Nations To Accumulate Gigantic Amounts Of Our Debt

Every month, we send much more money to the rest of the world than they send to us.  One thing that those other nations are doing with all of that money is that they are buying up our debt.

Our trade deficit with China has enabled them to accumulate nearly a trillion dollars of our debt.  This gives them tremendous leverage over us and is a very serious threat to our economy and to our national security.

So now China can threaten the stability of our financial system with just a phone call.

#9 Globalist Trade Institutions Are A Serious Threat To Our National Sovereignty

Today, the “global economy” is governed by globalist institutions such as the G20, the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank.  The United States has given up huge amounts of national sovereignty to these organizations.

If you are a true conservative, this should greatly disturb you.

We don’t want faceless international bureaucrats telling us what our trade policies will be.  But to a large degree that is the situation that we have gotten ourselves into.

#10 Liberals (And All Americans) Are Supposed To Care About What Is Best For American Workers

Millions of working class jobs have been shipped overseas, and yet Barack Obama just keeps pushing for more “free trade” agreements which will make the problem even worse.

But instead of screaming bloody murder, liberals keep on supporting Obama.

It’s disgusting.

The truth is that the Obama administration actually says that there are certain kinds of jobs that we “don’t want” in the United States.

For example, the following is what U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk recently told Tim Robertson of the Huffington Post about the Obama administration’s attitude toward keeping manufacturing jobs in America….

Let’s increase our competitiveness… the reality is about half of our imports, our trade deficit is because of how much oil [we import], so you take that out of the equation, you look at what percentage of it are things that frankly, we don’t want to make in America, you know, cheaper products, low-skill jobs that frankly college kids that are graduating from, you know, UC Cal and Hastings [don't want], but what we do want is to capture those next generation jobs and build on our investments in our young people, our education infrastructure.

So where is the outrage?

Is anyone even awake out there?

Even the construction of many of our roads and bridges is being outsourced to China.  Just check out the following quote from a recent ABC News article….

In New York there is a $400 million renovation project on the Alexander Hamilton Bridge.

In California, there is a $7.2 billion project to rebuild the Bay Bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland.

In Alaska, there is a proposal for a $190 million bridge project.

These projects sound like steps in the right direction, but much of the work is going to Chinese government-owned firms.

“When we subsidize jobs in China, we’re not creating any wealth in the United States,” said Scott Paul, executive director for the Alliance for American Manufacturing.

Liberals are supposed to be working to defend the working class.

So why won’t they openly go after Obama on these issues?

Our unfair trade agreements have put American workers in direct competition for jobs with the cheapest labor on the globe.

Until this is fixed, you will continue to hear a “great sucking sound” as millions of jobs continue to leave the United States and go to places where labor is ten to twenty times cheaper.

It is insanity what we are doing.  We allow big corporations to send their manufacturing offshore and also to ship their products back into the United States for free.

Where in that equation is good news for the American worker?

#11 Liberals (And All Americans) Should Be Horrified By The Exploitation Of Slave Labor Around The Globe

All over the globe, workers toil in nightmarish conditions for slave labor pay just so that Americans can feed their addiction for cheap foreign products.

Big corporations and collectivist governments such as China are getting unbelievably rich by exploiting this slave labor pool.

Get educated about this and find out the truth.  It just might totally change the way that you view “free trade”.

#12 Liberals (And All Americans) Should Be Horrified By The Damage To The Environment Our Trade Relationships Cause

Liberals are supposed to deeply care about the environment.  But our trade relationship with nations on the other side of the globe result in thousands of factories and businesses leaving our shores and ending up in countries where the environmental regulations are not nearly as strict.  In fact, nations such as China are a complete and total environmental nightmare at this point.  If liberals truly cared about the environment they would want to keep factories and businesses here.

#13 Very Dangerous Products Continue To Flood Into This Country From Overseas

Isn’t product safety supposed to be a big thing for liberals?  Today, a huge percentage of the products we buy are made outside the United States far from the watchful eyes of our regulatory agencies.  Over the past couple of years, there has been headline after headline about dangerous products made in China.  The following is just one example of this: 10 Babies Die Mysteriously At Fort Bragg: Toxic Drywall From China Used In Base Homes The Culprit?

#14 The Globalization Of The Economy Causes Income Inequality To Grow

By paying slave labor wages to workers overseas, the big corporations are becoming very wealthy.  At the same time, that means that there are much fewer jobs for average working class Americans, and wages for the jobs that remain are pushed down because of increased competition for jobs.

So the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

If you don’t believe that income inequality in the United States has become a huge problem, just check out this chart.

#15 Because Of All Of The Cheating And All Of The Predatory Behavior That Is Going On, Our Trade Relationships Have Become Incredibly Imbalanced

Today, the United States spends about 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.

So how is that even close to “fair”?

Our store shelves are absolutely packed with stuff from China.

In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China was “scrap and trash”.

Even in high technology products we are being destroyed.  In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in “advanced technology products” of $16 billion with the rest of the world.  In 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.

#16 Our Gigantic Trade Deficit Is Destroying Our National Wealth

The United States has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976, and since that time the United States has run a total trade deficit of more than 7.5 trillion dollars with the rest of the world.

Our gigantic trade deficits are making us poorer as a nation each and every month.  Each year, somewhere around half a trillion dollars of our national wealth gets transferred out of the United States.  That half a trillion dollars could be going to support U.S. businesses and U.S. jobs.  Taxes could be paid on that half a trillion dollars.  But instead it leaves the country and makes other nations wealthier.

#17 The Globalization Of The Economy Has Caused Unemployment In The United States To Explode

If you gathered together all of the workers that are “officially” unemployed in the United States today, they would constitute the 68th largest country in the world.

#18 As Our Cities Are Deindustrialized, Many Of Them Are Being Transformed Into Absolute Hellholes

The other day, I wrote the following about what is happening in cities and towns across the United States….

All across America there are cities and towns that were once prosperous and beautiful that are being transformed into absolute hellholes.  The scars left by the long-term economic decline of the United States are getting deeper and more gruesome.

#19 Without Good Jobs, An Increasing Number Of Americans Are Having To Turn To Government Assistance

We are going to support U.S. workers one way or another.  Either we are going to provide them with good jobs, or we are going to let their jobs be shipped out of the country and we are going to pay for the government to feed and house them.

Today, there are more than 45 million Americans on food stamps.  That number has gone up by more than 70 percent since 2007.  Almost every single month we set a new all-time record for the number of people being fed by the federal government.

#20 If Nothing Is Done, All Of This Is Going To Get A Lot Worse

According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades.

Can you imagine what America is going to look like if that happens?

**********

Okay, so in light of all of that information, can anyone out there defend the current “free trade” policies of the federal government?

The Top 100 Statistics About The Collapse Of The Economy That Every American Voter Should Know

The U.S. economy is dying and most American voters have no idea why it is happening.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media and most of our politicians are not telling the truth about the collapse of the economy.  This generation was handed the keys to the greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen, and we have completely wrecked it.  Decades of incredibly foolish decisions have left us drowning in an ocean of corruption, greed and bad debt.  Thousands of businesses and millions of jobs have left the country and poverty is exploding from coast to coast.  We are literally becoming a joke to the rest of the world.  It is absolutely imperative that we educate America about what is happening.  Until the American people truly understand the problems that we are facing, they will not be willing to implement the solutions that are necessary.

The following are the top 100 statistics about the collapse of the economy that every American voter should know….

#100 A staggering 48.5% of all Americans live in a household that receives some form of government benefits.  Back in 1983, that number was below 30 percent.

#99 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.

#98 Since Barack Obama was sworn in, the share of the national debt per household has increased by $35,835.

#97 The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

#96 It is being projected that the U.S. national debt will hit 344% of GDP by the year 2050 if we continue on our current course.

#95 The Congressional Budget Office is projecting that U.S. government debt held by the public will reach a staggering 716 percent of GDP by the year 2080.

#94 In 2010, the U.S. government paid $413 billion in interest on the national debt.  That is projected to at least double over the next decade.

#93 According to one new survey, one out of every three Americans would not be able to make a mortgage or rent payment next month if they suddenly lost their current job.

#92 State and local government debt has reached an all-time high of 22 percent of U.S. GDP.

#91 In 1980, government transfer payments accounted for just 11.7% of all income.  Today, government transfer payments account for 18.4% of all income.

#90 U.S. households are now receiving more income from the U.S. government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#89 According to a new study conducted by the BlackRock Investment Institute, the ratio of household debt to personal income in the United States is now 154 percent.

#88 If you can believe it, one out of every seven Americans has at least 10 credit cards.

#87 According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, health care costs accounted for just 9.5% of all personal consumption back in 1980.  Today they account for approximately 16.3%.

#86 The cost of a health insurance policy for the average American family rose by a whopping 9 percent last year, and according to a report put out by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust, the average family health insurance policy now costs over $15,000 a year.

#85 One study found that approximately 41 percent of working age Americans either have medical bill problems or are currently paying off medical debt.

#84 An all-time record 49.9 million Americans do not have any health insurance at all at this point, and the percentage of Americans covered by employer-based health plans has fallen for 11 years in a row.

#83 According to a report published in The American Journal of Medicine, medical bills are a major factor in more than 60 percent of the personal bankruptcies in the United States.  Of those bankruptcies that were caused by medical bills, approximately 75 percent of them involved individuals that actually did have health insurance.

#82 Average yearly tuition at U.S. private universities is now up to $27,293.

#81 The cost of college tuition in the United States has gone up by over 900 percent since 1978.

#80 In America today, approximately two-thirds of all college students graduate with student loans.

#79 In 2010, the average college graduate had accumulated approximately $25,000 in student loan debt by graduation day.

#78 The total amount of student loan debt in the United States now exceeds the total amount of credit card debt in the United States.

#77 One-third of all college graduates end up taking jobs that don’t even require college degrees.

#76 In the United States today, there are more than 100,000 janitors that have college degrees.

#75 In the United States today, 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees.

#74 In the United States today, approximately 365,000 cashiers have college degrees.

#73 It is being projected that for the first time ever, the OPEC nations are going to bring in over a trillion dollars from exporting oil this year.  Their biggest customer is the United States.

#72 U.S. oil companies will bring in about $200 billion in pre-tax profits this year.  They will also receive about $4.4 billion in specialized tax breaks from the U.S. government.

#71 The United States has had a negative trade balance every single year since 1976, and since that time the United States has run a total trade deficit of more than 7.5 trillion dollars with the rest of the world.

#70 The United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs per month since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001.

#69 The U.S. trade deficit with China is now 27 times larger than it was back in 1990.

#68 Today, the United States spends more than 4 dollars on goods and services from China for every one dollar that China spends on goods and services from the United States.

#67 China has surpassed the United States and is now the largest PC market in the entire world.

#66 In 2002, the United States had a trade deficit in “advanced technology products” of $16 billion with the rest of the world.  In 2010, that number skyrocketed to $82 billion.

#65 In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China was “scrap and trash”.

#64 Do you remember when the United States was the dominant manufacturer of automobiles and trucks on the globe?  Well, in 2010 the U.S. ran a trade deficit in automobiles, trucks and parts of $110 billion.

#63 The United States has lost a staggering 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#62 If you can believe it, more than 42,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been closed down since 2001.

#61 Between December 2000 and December 2010, 38 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Ohio were lost, 42 percent of the manufacturing jobs in North Carolina were lost and 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in Michigan were lost.

#60 Back in 1970, 25 percent of all jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.

#59 According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades.

#58 If you gathered together all of the workers that are “officially” unemployed in the United States today, they would constitute the 68th largest country in the world.

#57 There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States right now than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then.

#56 Back in 1969, 95 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 54 had a job.  In July, only 81.2 percent of men in that age group had a job.

#55 Only 55.3% of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 were employed last year.  That was the lowest level that we have seen since World War II.

#54 Today, there are 5.9 million Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 that are living with their parents.

#53 The economic downturn has been particularly tough on men.  According to Census data, men are twice as likely to live with their parents as women are.

#52 According to one recent survey, only 14 percent of all Americans that are 28 or 29 years old are optimistic about their financial futures.

#51 Incredibly, less than 30 percent of all U.S. teens had a job this summer.

#50 According to one study, between 1969 and 2009 the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.

#49 Since the year 2000, we have lost approximately 10% of our middle class jobs.  In the year 2000 there were about 72 million middle class jobs in the United States but today there are only about 65 million middle class jobs.

#48 In 1980, 52 percent of all jobs in the United States were middle income jobs.  Today, only 42 percent of all jobs are middle income jobs.

#47 Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs.  Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.

#46 According to Paul Osterman, a professor of economics at MIT, approximately 20 percent of all employed Americans are making $10.65 an hour or less.

#45 Half of all American workers now earn $505 or less per week.

#44 Since December 2007, median household income in the United States has declined by a total of 6.8% once you account for inflation.

#43 New home sales in the United States are now down 80% from the peak in July 2005.

#42 The all-time record for fewest number of new homes sold in the United States was broken in 2009.  Then it was broken again in 2010.  It is on pace to be broken once again in 2011.

#41 At one point this year, U.S. home prices had fallen a whopping 33% from where they were at during the peak of the housing bubble.

#40 U.S. home values have fallen approximately 6 trillion dollars since the housing crisis first began.

#39 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 18 percent of all homes in the state of Florida are sitting vacant.  That figure is 63 percent larger than it was just ten years ago.

#38 Historically, the percentage of residential mortgages in foreclosure in the United States has tended to hover between 1 and 1.5 percent.  Today, it is up around 4.5 percent.

#37 According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, at least 8 million Americans are currently at least one month behind on their mortgage payments.

#36 According to a Harris Interactive survey taken near the end of last year, 77 percent of all Americans are now living paycheck to paycheck.  In 2007, the same survey found that only 43 percent of Americans were living paycheck to paycheck.

#35 Starting on January 1st, 2011 the Baby Boomers began to hit retirement age.  From now on, every single day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65.  That is going to keep happening every single day for the next 19 years.

#34 According to a new poll by Americans for Secure Retirement, 88 percent of all Americans are worried about “maintaining a comfortable standard of living in retirement”.  Last year, that figure was at 73 percent.

#33 One out of every six elderly Americans now lives below the federal poverty line.

#32 In 1950, each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 U.S. workers.  According to new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are now only 1.75 full-time private sector workers for each person that is receiving Social Security benefits in the United States.

#31 According to the Congressional Budget Office, the Social Security system paid out more in benefits than it received in payroll taxes in 2010.  That was not supposed to happen until at least 2016.

#30 The U.S. government now says that the Medicare trust fund will run out five years faster than they were projecting just last year.

#29 According to one study, the 50 U.S. state governments are collectively 3.2 trillion dollars short of what they need to meet their pension obligations.

#28 A different study has shown that individual Americans are $6.6 trillion short of what they need to retire comfortably.

#27 Between 1991 and 2007 the number of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 that filed for bankruptcy rose by a staggering 178 percent.

#26 According to a shocking AARP survey of Baby Boomers that are still in the workforce, 40 percent of them plan to work “until they drop”.

#25 Last year, 2.6 million more Americans dropped into poverty.  That was the largest increase that we have seen since the U.S. government began keeping statistics on this back in 1959.

#24 Back in the year 2000, 11.3% of all Americans were living in poverty.  Today, 15.1% of all Americans are living in poverty.

#23 More than 50 million Americans are now on Medicaid.  Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid.  Today, approximately one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid.

#22 More than 45 million Americans are now on food stamps.

#21 The number of Americans on food stamps has increased 74% since 2007.

#20 Approximately one-third of the entire population of the state of Alabama is now on food stamps.

#19 Right now, one out of every four American children is on food stamps.

#18 It is being projected that approximately 50 percent of all U.S. children will be on food stamps at some point in their lives before they reach the age of 18.

#17 The poverty rate for children living in the United States increased to 22% in 2010.

#16 There are 314 counties in the United States where at least 30% of the children are facing food insecurity.

#15 In Washington D.C., the “child food insecurity rate” is 32.3%.

#14 More than 20 million U.S. children rely on school meal programs to keep from going hungry.

#13 It is estimated that up to half a million children may currently be homeless in the United States.

#12 The number of Americans that are going to food pantries and soup kitchens has increased by 46% since 2006.

#11 According to a recent report from the AFL-CIO, the average CEO made 343 times more money than the average American did last year.

#10 The wealthiest 1% of all Americans now own more than a third of all the wealth in the United States.

#9 The poorest 50% of all Americans collectively own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States.

#8 The percentage of millionaires in Congress is more than 50 times higher than the percentage of millionaires in the general population.

#7 According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 16.6 million Americans were self-employed back in December 2006.  Today, that number has shrunk to 14.5 million.

#6 According to one recent poll, 90 percent of the American people believe that economic conditions in the United States are “poor”.  To put this in perspective, only 11 percent of Americans rated economic conditions in the U.S. as “poor” back in January of 1999.

#5 According to another recent poll, 80 percent of the American people believe that we are actually in a recession right now.

#4 Our dollar is being systematically destroyed by the Federal Reserve.  An item that cost $20.00 in 1970 will cost you $116.78 today.  An item that cost $20.00 in 1913 will cost you $457.67 today.

#3 The Federal Reserve made $16.1 trillion in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis.

#2 The Federal Reserve is a perpetual debt machine.  Today, the U.S. national debt is more than 4700 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913.

#1 According to a new CNN/ORC International Poll, 27 percent of all Americans have never even heard of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

We need to educate America.

Please share this with as many people as you can.  Time is running out for America, and 2012 is going to be an absolutely pivotal year in the history of this nation.

We are in the midst of a long-term economic decline that is rapidly accelerating.  If dramatic changes are not made very quickly, we will soon witness a full-blown collapse of the economy.

Wake up as many people as you can.

We are running out of time.

A Nation of Immigrants?

A Nation of Immigrants?

From mansizedtarget.wordpress.com

New Blogger Jonathan at Commissar Class makes a good point in an elegant way:

America is not a “nation of immigrants,” nor can any nation be. Immigrants can’t comprise nations for the same reason pledges can’t constitute frats or that job applicants can’t constitute workplaces — societies are comprised of their members, not of those who simply want to be members.

This is no slight to our ancestors who immigrated. They stopped immigrating – that is, journeying in pursuit of belonging in a nation — for a reason the “nation of immigrants” myth makes us forget: because they obtained what they were after.

Our ancestors did want to remain on the boat that brought them, nor did they want to be typecast as mascots in sepia-toned, tear-jerking images of Ellis Island, which always accompany the myth-makers’ melodramatic intonations as to what America is. The wanted to graduate from the status of those who simply want to belong to this nation, and to that of those who have earned that right.

They succeeded. But the myth won’t admit this — it keeps our forebears trapped in the past, on a crowded boat, forever wandering.

America is not a “nation of immigrants”

September 13, 2011 by Jonathan S

America is not a “nation of immigrants,” nor can any nation be. Immigrants can’t comprise nations for the same reason pledges can’t constitute frats or that job applicants can’t constitute workplaces — societies are comprised of their members, not of those who simply want to be members.

This is no slight to our ancestors who immigrated. They stopped immigrating – that is, journeying in pursuit of belonging in a nation — for a reason the “nation of immigrants” myth makes us forget: because they obtained what they were after.

Our ancestors did want to remain on the boat that brought them, nor did they want to be typecast as mascots in sepia-toned, tear-jerking images of Ellis Island, which always accompany the myth-makers’ melodramatic intonations as to what America is. The wanted to graduate from the status of those who simply want to belong to this nation, and to that of those who have earned that right.

They succeeded. But the myth won’t admit this — it keeps our forebears trapped in the past, on a crowded boat, forever wandering.

The “nation of immigrants” myth thus diminishes both our ancestors and our nation. It says our forebears who became Americans are still on the outside looking in, and it reduces our homeland to an oxymoron — an organization of outsiders.

The myth is worse than an act of disrespect, however. It is also one of subversion.

If a nation can be comprised of non-members, than membership has no meaning. One of membership’s benefits is ownership of the organization, but if anyone can join, then no one has a greater claim on the society than anyone else, including its rightful owners.

A nation’s only rightful owners are its citizens. Everyone else is either an outsider, or, if on the inside, a mere guest or trespasser. The myth’s disseminators are desperate that we forget these truths, because the American who remembers them will think and act like the owner of a literal house.

He will be no more persuaded that he owes his nation to an immigrant than that he owes his house to the homeless guy across the block. Abuse of nostalgia won’t work on him either — he understands that his grandfather’s one-time status as a non-member doesn’t mean that membership must be given to everyone who wants it.

The American who knows he owns his country is a threat because he will insist on his rights without apology or qualification. He is formidable foe because will see with clear eyes where his interests lie, and where they conflict with those whose entrance into America will come at his expense. In sum, he will prove a difficult victim, as those armed with essential truths always are.

The mythmakers don’t lie to us for the enjoyment of empty semantics. They tell us we don’t own our nation so that they can more easily take it from us.

The most dedicated propagators are either satisfied or overjoyed at the influx of at least 800,000 legal newcomers each year, and the minimum 200,000 invaders streaming in annually, but they also know that these trends are highly unpopular, if so far only feebly resisted, by the American public. So they extend what appears to many well-meaning Americans an olive branch in the form of the myth. In not so many words, they soothingly pronounce, “We may have our differences, but surely we can agree, that America is a nation of immigrants.”

This is no concession. This is no peace offering or step towards a meeting in the middle. It is a pernicious lie about our courageous ancestors, and about us. It establishes a false morality which denies citizens the most fundamental rights of belonging. It is a knife in the back and it will continue to injure us as long as we don’t recognize it as such.

White in America- Massive Mahogany Mob Strikes Again

White in America: Peoria Racial Attacks Weren’t Exaggerated — Massive Mahogany Mob Strikes Again

stuffblackpeopledontlike.blogspot.com

An Actual Twitter (public) conversation with Soledad O’Brien

If you follow this blog, we implore you to start using social media (Facebook, Twitter, DIGG, and Reddit). The power to interact with people you will never have the opportunity to in the flesh is profound, and you’ll be surprised who might respond to a “tweet” you send out.

SBPDL has Twitter. Follow us here. We have decided to start a new “hash tag” (a way for people to search certain terms and see who is commenting on them, and work to get them trending) called #whiteinamerica. This is, of course, inspired by CNN’s “Black in America” series that investigates life for Black people in Black-Run America (BRA).

Any abnormality that Black people face will be highlighted in this on-going series (such as poor credit ratings, a problem that only exists when you spend more than you make) and efforts by the Federal government to quickly correct this inequity will be made.

What does it mean to be ‘White in America’? We are going to explore this in a long essay for another Web site, but have no problem in stating the thesis: racial violence against white people is hardly a cause for concern nor justification for coverage by the media, for it is just another example of the privilege of being white; white people shouldn’t worry about the changing demographics in America, for the joyous day when white people are just another minority group is the moment when a peaceful Utopia will occur.

In summation, white people have no voice in their continued dispossession that they have the privilege of funding, and have the honor of bearing the brunt of the primary racial assaults (Black-on-white attacks being the most prolific) transpiring in this nation that the media admittedly will not cover.

SBPDL started as a joke. That joke started to end on July 4, 2009 when we read about a Mahogany Mob attack in Akron, Ohio (50+ Black people) on a white family trying to enjoy the fire works. In this case, the Black participants shouted “It’s a Black world!” as they attacked the white family.

That joke ended this summer, when Mahogany Robs and Mahogany Mobs started emerging nationwide to a complete media Black-out.

That joke officially ended when scores of Black people at the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee pulled white people from their cars and assaulted them. CNN didn’t cover this story (only local media did), but instead covered a month-old killing in Jackson, Mississippi, allegedly a white teenager running over a Black guy.

They just did a special on this killing (Mississippi Burning Again?). The unprecedented racial violence against white people by Black people that has accelerated since Mein Obama took office is left to be discussed on The American Thinker and in the e-book “White Girl Bleed  A Lot” by Colin Flaherty – reviewed at WorldNetDaily here – or other sites that are basically marginalized (no offense guys and girls).

Take Peoria, Illinois for example. A city that is basically 70 percent white and 25 percent Black, Peoria has seen the escalation of racial violence in the past six months that CNN has yet to discuss. Problematic for CNN; it’s huge mobs of Black people attacking law-abiding white citizens. If it were angry white mobs terrorizing Peoria’s Black population, you’d have an international incident on your hands that Anderson Cooper would cover for weeks.

No, you have this:

Two motorists were accosted by groups of teenagers within a few days of each other in an area near the site of a similar incident over the summer that drew national attention.

A group of about 50 young people on West Thrush Avenue near North Sheridan Road in June caused a disturbance by blocking the roadway and, according to one resident but not others, shouting race-related remarks.

Comments related to race also were part of one of the incidents last week.

A Meals on Wheels delivery driver was making his way to a home in the 800 block of West Nowland Avenue about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday when he encountered a group of 15 teens – 13 males and two females – walking down the middle of the road.

The group would not yield to the motorist, who followed him until reaching the house where he had to make the meal delivery. As he exited to take the food to the door, he was verbally attacked, according to a report on the incident.

One teen called him “honky,” while another threatened to “kick his white (expletive).”

As the volunteer driver returned to his car to leave, the teens surrounded his car and pounded on it. The vehicle was not damaged, but police noted disturbances to dust on the vehicle, backing up the driver’s story.
A woman driving in the 800 block of West Brons Avenue on Saturday night was the subject of a similar, but much more aggressive confrontation. She encountered a group of more than 40 teens about 10:25 p.m.

The group surrounded the 21-year-old woman’s car and began beating on it with an object that shattered her driver’s side window. One of the boys involved in the attack also pointed a handgun in the direction of a passenger in the car, but didn’t make any threats or attempt to open the door.

When police responded, the group scattered in different directions. No arrests were made.

Both incidents remain under investigation by police. Public information officer Doug Burgess said Monday the incidents do not appear to be organized efforts, but rather the byproduct of unruly circumstances.
“It’s not groups that are getting together to wreak havoc on the community,” Burgess said.

The group Wednesday likely had just left school after District 150 released students early for the day. Police also have fielded reports that the group Saturday night had just left a nearby house party. The large group in June, too, had been at a house party just before that incident.

It’s a safe bet that white families will not be going trick or treating this weekend, for the fear of Mahogany Mobs attacking white kids dressed as ghost, dogs, or registered mail is too great. Seriously though, trick or treating will probably be canceled in Peoria, because police cannot guarantee the safety of white kids in that community, the number one sign that the Black Undertow has taken over.

Where are you CNN? Where were you in June, when this happened?:

This is a reprint from the Peoria Chronicle’s web site. It was posted by CJ, the sites owner and written by Paul Wilkinson. Paul is the President of the Altamont Park Neighborhood Association. I know Paul and he is the most straight forward person I’ve met. He has no need to embellish or to lie. That means this is true and it’s an outrage. I hope Mr. Jackson of the local NAACP reads this and responds. That will be interesting. This is nothing more than hate and race war against whites. 

Here is the posted letter: 

Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill alll the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help. 

Cars were doing U turns on the streets just to avoid the mob, mostly male. One youth stated his grandfather was white and several assaulted him on the spot. One police officer answered the call. The youth split into two large groups, one heading north, the other south. They were also yelling racial threats to the police officer but he was outnumbered. Another police car did not show up until after the youth finally dispersed and the patty wagon (van) also eventually showed up. 

Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 are out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night. The times vary, even occuring during the day. In talking to the police officer, they are short staffed. Residents were advised to simply keep inside and to lock their doors. In other words buckle down, it’s not even safe to sit on your porch or go into your yards. 

My take? These are the same youths that run our schools and these are the same that make our schools unsafe, can’t make state standards, and assault teachers and staff. Why? Because there are no repercussions for their actions. At District 150, many are slapped on the wrist or told they suffer econmic let down or whatever and must need help. Even the Chief of Police who tried to correct this type of mob action on the south side streets by issuing J-Walking tickets a few years back, slapped them by removing the tickets. Why? Because the NAACP bitched up a storm. These were poor mis-understood children. 

Time has come for us to step up. Us, I mean law abiding citizens and no, I don’t mean grab the rifles and pitchforks. Two wrongs don’t make a right. No, I mean it’s time we citizens hold our elected leaders responsible and make, no, demand they take action and end this shit once and for all. I don’t care if they have to stuff 10 to a cell, but if they are doing this type of crap in our streets, then lock them up. 

Aw, but our City Leaders are too damn busy balancing the budget, raising our taxes, making up new fees, paying developers for hotels so Peoria can join the cliché and have walkways to the Civic Center. They do this by laying off cops, fireman, and city street workers. 

If we were smart, we would band together, rent a real nice bus from Peoria Charter coach, put some Rap videos on the tvs on the bus, pull up to Thrush and Sheridan and load these poor mis directed youth onto them and drive them deep into the 5th District and let them out near Picture Ridge. Watch how fast this is taken care of then.

 The Peoria Journal Star tried to downplay the attacks by Mahogany Mobs back in June, publishing stories that tried to claim the racial aspects of the Mahogany Mob were exaggerated. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice…

After allegations of a racist mob intimidating residents in Central Peoria captured nationwide attention over the weekend, police and city officials tried to quell residents’ concerns Monday.

The attention stemmed from a group of about 50 young people who walked down Thrush Avenue toward Sheridan Road just before 11 p.m. Friday. Paul Wilkinson, a Sheridan resident, said some in the group were yelling, “We’re gonna kill all the white people.”

City officials downplayed the racial angle Monday at a news conference at City Hall. Of the 20 houses police stopped at to speak with residents, only one resident reported the group used racial slurs, said City Manager Patrick Urich.

SBPDL sent a “tweet” to Soledad O’Brien, one of the primary people behind CNN’s “Black in America” (and “Hispanic in America”) series. We asked her why there was no “White in America” series, considering that whites the increasing levels of violence against the dwindling white population in America.

She responded with this:

Soledad O’Brien

@
good question. Though I don’t believe white people are hated. And they’re hardly dwindling.

Considering the incidents that CNN missed this past summer (check here for a list of them), it’s more than past time that someone did a “White in America” series. It won’t be Fox News.

Soledad O’Brien, you are a good journalist and you need to go to Peoria and find out what is going on. Huge Mahogany Mobs – like the ones in Milwaukee, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and other cities – are terrorizing and targeting white people in Peoria.

Again.

Europe Tries To Kick The Can Down The Road But It Will Only Lead To Financial Disaster

Europe Tries To Kick The Can Down The Road But It Will Only Lead To Financial Disaster

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/europe-tries-to-kick-the-can-down-the-road-but-it-will-only-lead-to-financial-disaster

Have you heard the good news?  Financial armageddon has been averted.  The economic collapse in Europe has been cancelled.  Everything is going to be okay.  Well, actually none of those statements is true, but news of the “debt deal” in Europe has set off a frenzy of irrational exuberance throughout the financial world anyway.  Newspapers all over the globe are declaring that the financial crisis in Europe is over.  Stock markets all over the world are soaring.  The Dow was up nearly 3 percent today, and this recent surge is helping the S&P 500 to have its best month since 1974.  Global financial markets are experiencing an explosion of optimism right now.  Yes, European leaders have been able to kick the can down the road for a few months and a total Greek default is not going to happen right now.  However, as you will see below, the core elements of this “debt deal” actually make a financial disaster in Europe even more likely in the future.

The two most important parts of the plan are a 50% “haircut” on Greek debt held by private investors and highly leveraging the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) to give it much more “firepower”.

Both of these elements are likely to cause significant problems down the road.  But most investors do not seem to have figured this out yet.  In fact, most investors seem to be buying into the hype that Europe’s problems have been solved.

There is a tremendous lack of critical thinking in the financial community today.  Just because politicians in Europe say that the crisis has been solved does not mean that the crisis has been solved.  But all over the world there are bold declarations that a great “breakthrough” has been achieved.  An article posted on USA Today is an example of this irrational exuberance….

Investors — at least for now — don’t have to worry about a financial collapse like the one in 2008, after Wall Street investment bank Lehman Bros. filed for bankruptcy, sparking a global financial crisis.

“Financial Armageddon seems to have been taken off the table,” says Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott.

Wow, doesn’t that sound great?

But now let’s look at the facts.

You can’t solve a debt problem with even more debt.  But that is what this debt deal is trying to do.

The politicians in Europe did not want to raise more money for the EFSF the “hard way”.  Voters in Germany (and other European nations) are overwhelmingly against contributing even more cash to a fund that many see as a financial black hole.

So what do you do when more money is needed but nobody wants to contribute?

You borrow it.

Essentially, this debt deal calls for the EFSF to become four or five times larger by “leveraging” the existing funds in the EFSF.

But isn’t that risky?

Of course it is.

There are some leaders in Europe that recognize this.  For example, an article in The Telegraph notes the reservations that the president of the Bundesbank has about this plan….

Jens Weidmann, the president of the Bundesbank and a member of the European Central Bank, sounded the alarm over the plan to “leverage” the fund by a factor of four to five times without putting any new money into the pot.

He warned that the scheme could be hit by market turbulence with taxpayers left holding the bill for risky investments in Italian and Spanish bonds.

So who is going to fund all of this new debt?

Well, it turns out that the Europeans are counting on the same folks that the U.S. government is constantly borrowing money from.

The Chinese.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has already spoken directly with Chinese President Hu Jintao about funding this new bailout effort.

So is borrowing money from the Chinese to fund bailouts for Greece and other weak sisters in Europe sound policy?

Of course not.

And the sad thing is that this expanded EFSF is still not going to be enough to solve the financial problems in Europe.

According to an article in The Telegraph, a recent survey of economists found that most of them do not believe that this new plan is going to raise enough money….

The plan to increase the European Financial and Stability Facility to €1  trillion on paper was attacked by economists as not enough to “stave off” worsening debt problems in Italy and Spain.

In a survey of economists, 26 of 48 thought the firepower was not enough.

But the worst part of this new plan is the 50 percent “haircut” that private investors are being forced to take.

This is essentially a partial default by the Greek government.  A lot of folks are going to get hit really hard by losses from this.  Instead of making financial institutions in Europe stronger, these losses are going to make a lot of them even weaker.

Normally, in the event of a default, credit default swap contracts would be triggered.  But apparently because this was considered to be a “voluntary” haircut, that is not going to happen in this instance.

A Bloomberg article explained this in greater detail.  The following is a brief excerpt….

The EU agreement with investors for a voluntary 50 percent writedown on their Greek bond holdings means $3.7 billion of debt-insurance contracts won’t be triggered, according to the International Swaps & Derivatives Association’s rules.

That means that investors and financial institutions all over the world are just going to have to eat these losses.

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou is already acknowledging that a number of Greek banks will have to be nationalized because of the severity of this “haircut”.  A recent CNBC article detailed this….

The haircut is expected to impose big losses on the country’s banks and state-run pension funds, which are up their necks in toxic Greek government bonds of about 100 billion euros.

The government will replenish pension funds’ capital, but banks may face temporary nationalisation, Papandreou said.

“It is very likely that a large part of the banks’ shares will pass into state ownership,” Papandreou said. He pledged, however, that these stakes will be sold back to private investors after the banks’ restructuring.

So where will the Greek government get the funds to “replenish” the capital of those banks?

That is a very good question.

But we haven’t even discussed the worst part of this “debt deal” yet.

If you don’t remember any other part of this article, please remember this.

The debt deal in Europe sends a very frightening message to the market.

The truth is that Europe could have totally bailed out Greece without any sort of a “haircut” taking place.

But they didn’t.

So now investors all over the globe have got to be thinking that if they are holding Portuguese bonds, Italian bonds or Spanish bonds there is a really good chance that they will be forced to take a massive “haircut” at some point as well.

At this time last year, the yield on two year Italian bonds was about 2.5 percent.  Now it is about 4.5 percent.  As investors begin to price in the probability of having to take a future “haircut” on Italian debt, those bond yields are going to go much, much higher.

That means that it is going to become much more expensive for the Italian government to borrow money and that also means that it is going to become much more difficult for the Italians to get their financial house in order.

In essence, the haircut on Greek debt is a signal to investors that they should require a much higher rate of return on the debt of all of the PIIGS.  This is going to make the financial collapse of all of the PIIGS much more likely.

Remember, about this time last year the yield on two year Greek bonds was about 10 percent.  Today, it is over 70 percent.

As I wrote about in a previous article, the western world is in debt up to its eyeballs right now and trying to kick the can down the road is not going to solve anything.

Our leaders may succeed in delaying the pain for a while, but it most definitely is coming.

Greece, Portugal, Ireland and Italy all have debt to GDP ratios that are well over 100% right now.  Spain is in a huge amount of trouble as well.

When you add up all the debt, Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Italy and Spain owe the rest of the world about 3 trillion euros combined.

If Italy or Spain goes down, the rest of Europe is going to be helpless to stop it.  There simply is not going to be enough money to bail either one of them out.

That is why this “debt deal” is so alarming.  All investors in Italian or Spanish debt will now have to factor in the probability that they will be required to accept a 50 percent haircut at some point in the future.

If the markets behave rationally (and if the ECB does not manipulate them too much), it appears inevitable that bond yields over in Europe are going to rise substantially, and that will put tremendous additional financial strain on governments all over Europe.

Basically, we have got a huge mess on our hands, and this debt deal just made it a lot worse.

Yes, a financial collapse has been averted in Greece for the moment, but the truth is that there is no real reason to be celebrating this deal.

A massive financial storm is coming to Europe, and this “debt deal” has made that all the more certain.

Once again, politicians in Europe have tried to kick the can down the road, but in the end their efforts are only going to lead to complete and total financial disaster.

Why aren’t mainstream conservatives racialist?

Why aren’t mainstream conservatives racialist?

Brett Stevens

There are two types of politics in this country: mainstream, for saying things that are socially acceptable, and underground, for saying things that if said on television would bring a wave of condemnation from folks trying to prove they’re better than me or you.

In underground politics, people talk about diversity and political correctness as the destructive things they are. No one dares do that in mainstream politics, although they hint at it and will dance around it because it makes their audience momentarily hope.

Not one mainstream conservative has ever identified himself as racialist.

Instead of further polarizing those on the right against each other, I want to explain the logical reasons for this behavior, and then explain how we can reach out to these people and form bonds. This will require you to give up the assumptions you have made about politics since you were a younger person. I apologize for the inconvenience but at the end of the day, you either want to succeed—or you don’t. No middle ground.

The connection between conservatism and racialism is this: conservatives recognize a number of factors about race, but view race as too narrow of an issue upon which to base a party.

For example, you would be hard-pressed to find a mainstream conservative who will not acknowledge in private the following:

  • That biological differences exist not only between races, but between ethnic groups, and social classes and castes in all ethnic groups. Even more, that biological differences also exist between individuals, and that intelligence and moral character are for the most part heritable.
  • That diversity is a nightmare because it requires the destruction of culture, which in turn requires a strong Nanny State, which creates a haven for the crassest kind of commerce. Conservatives know that a strong culture is better than all the cops, “education,” propaganda and courts in the world.
  • That evolution is compatible with Christianity and that evolution branched, creating groups with different obligations and needs. In fact, whatever we think of the soul, it is clear the body influences it and that we have evolved differently between races, ethnic groups, and social classes.
  • There are no “Blank Slate” individuals because you cannot educate, discipline and mould someone into an ideal as you would make metal parts. Individuals are individuals. They are not equal, but in fact widely different.
  • That the leftist use of race is as a method, not as an end goal. The leftist goal is class warfare; importing anti-majority voters, destroying majority culture, confusing politics and generally introducing chaos and failure supports that mission of class warfare and wealth redistribution.
  • That a nation is defined by its people not its political system, its economy or its rules. These things are simply the lowest common denominator that a nation with little in common can agree on. Both leftists and right-wingers want the economy not to die, and no riots in the streets, but that’s about all they share.
  • That Social Darwinism made us strong and a lack of it weakens us. Most people are appalled by this, but much as Darwinism brought us out of our dumber simian roots, social competition has forced people to develop more intelligence and greater social and moral awareness.
  • That entitlement programs and racial pity destroy the black community as well as the white community. When you remove a sense of having a goal, or having a goal beyond “be tolerant,” people languish in inactivity and resentment.

Every single topic covered by racialists is present there, but so is a much broader framework. Conservatives after all are those who conserve, or retain whole things for the collective based on what has or has not worked in the past.

Strong cultures, family-oriented societies, chaste and sober values, a strong identity and heritage, and relatively homogenous societies (think Finland or Japan) are the most successful nations on earth. Conservatives at heart want to emulate that.

Of course, with our current speech codes, such things must be said in code or in a whisper, but the game of mainstream conservatism is gaining enough power to express the basic idea, not fight over the details. The more we get a foot in the door, the more we convince the born leaders in local communities to support us.

Therein is the appeal to conservatives: they respond to positive plans that will strengthen their constituents. Angry rhetoric and single-minded single issue voting with a destructive or revengeful bent will turn them away. This is one reason they avoid overt “racists” but will support plain-spoken nationalists.

Conservatives by their very nature endorse ideas that resonate with natural law, the organic order of society, and identity politics. They dislike hatred; they love an opportunity to build and nurture the population that most accurately represents their constituents.

The notion of preserving anything outside of the individual is a conservative notion. Liberals will never do it. Even if they pretend to be friendly to racial nationalists, liberals are fundamentally opposed to the idea of telling any individual what they can or cannot do (unless it involves intolerance).

Let us look at the difference between liberals and conservatives:

  • Liberals endorse a spectrum from anarchy to communism: the individual has the unrestricted right to do whatever he or she wants to. They attack goal-based thinking as immoral and demand the right to ignore goals in favor of individual desires.
  • Conservatives conserve. This requires they do more than preserve the individual, and in fact focus on social institutions, values and behaviors larger than any individual. They attack liberalism by pointing out that it has confused goals and as such, regulates methods (effects) not end results (causes).

Since 1789 with the revolution in France, and 1968 with their takeover of popular culture, liberals have been trying to destroy the idea of any collective values, common sense or culture held in common. They want to turn us into granular, self-obsessed, cultureless, heritageless and valueless “last men.”

Conservatives oppose this notion. For them to do so, they need a perspective that includes all possible issues. This perspective is the idea of conserving what produces good results for all people, and instead of pandering to the individual, demanding the individual rise to meet elevated social standards.

In their view, a social standard (like culture, heritage and values in common) is the root of all healthy societies. Without such a standard, we cannot agree on anything or have any kind of moral fabric except “if it feels good, do it.”

The need for a social standard is the only possible constructive argument for racial nationalism. Conservatives are the only ones who will endorse this. Reaching out to conservatives requires we abandon race as a central point, and reach out for a social standard, common values and collective identity instead, because inevitably that will lead to race, culture and soil. My fellow crypto-greens will appreciate the importance of that notion.

While mainstream conservatives are not yet ready to speak certain ideas out loud, they endorse the larger principles that must come before it and other sane non-liberal views of politis. This reason is why we should support them even if they do not word-for-word echo our own views.

The Shock of History

The Shock of History

A propos:
Dominique Venner.
Le choc de l’Histoire. Religion, mémoire, identité.
Versailles: Via Romana, September 2011.

 

“The future belongs to those with the longest memory.” –Nietzsche

Conservative thinking, Karl Mannheim notes, is essentially historical thinking—in that it orients to the concrete, to ‘what is’ and ‘what has been’, instead of to ‘what ought to be’ or ‘what can be’. ‘Properly understood’, historical thinking (as créatrice de sens) reveals the ‘Providential’ design evident in the course and test of time.

Some anti-liberals are wont thus to situate their ‘conservative’ project within the frame of Europe’s historical destiny and the higher design informing it.

The most renowned of such historical thinkers (representing what Carolina Armenteros calls the ‘the French idea of history’) was the father of European anti-liberalism, Joseph de Maistre—though he is not our subject.  Rather, it is the foremost contemporary avatar of anti-liberal historical thought: Dominique Venner.

The 75-year-old, French-speaking European of Celt and German descent, father of five, Venner is a historical scholar, a writer of popular histories and of various works on firearms and hunting, as well as the editor of two successful, artfully illustrated historical journals.

But whatever his genre, Venner bears the knightly (or legionnaire) standard of Europe’s multi-millennial heritage—the heritage, he claims, that took form with the blind poet, who is the father of us all—the heritage whose Homeric spirit knows to honor the brave, bare-foot soldiers of the Confederacy and the social banditry of Jesse James—and, most insistently, the heritage that expects a future commensurate with Europe’s incomparable past.

Venner is not your average academic historians; indeed, he’s not an academic at all. His life has been lived out on the last of France’s imperial battlefields; in Parisian street politics, in the outlawed OAS, in prison, and in laying the conceptual foundations of the European New Right; and finally, since his early thirties, in the various libraries, archives, and communal memories he’s searched to produce the 50 books he’s written on the key historical upheavals of the last century or so.

Unsurprisingly, his historical sense is ‘over-determined’—not solely by an  intelligence steeped in the life of the mind, but also by disciplines acquired in those schools of initiands known only to the political soldier.

Venner_Dominique_-_Le_choc_de_lhistoireHis latest book—Le Choc de l’Histoire—is not a work of history per se, but a series of meditations, in the form of a book-long interview (conducted by the historian Pauline Lecomte) on the historical situation presently facing Europeans. These meditations approach their subject in parallel but opposite ways: 1) one approach surveys the contours of Europe’s longue durée—those centuries of growth that made the great oak so venerable—and, in the spirit of the Annales School, reveals her ‘secret permanences’, and, 2) a very different but complementary approach that silhouettes the heroic individuals and individual events (Achilles and the Iliad foremost) exemplifying the Homeric spirit of European man—disclosing his possibilities, and offering him thus an alternative to his programmed extinction.

Venner’s thesis is that: Europeans, after having been militarily, politically, and morally crushed by events largely of their own making, have been lost in sleep (‘in dormition’) for the last half-century and are now—however slowly—beginning to experience a ‘shock of history’ that promises to wake them, as they are forced to defend an identity of which they had previously been almost unconscious.

Like the effect of cascading catastrophes (the accelerating decomposition of America’s world empire, Europe’s Islamic colonization, the chaos-creating nihilism of global capitalism, etc.), the shock of history today is becoming more violent and destructive, making it harder for Europeans to stay lulled in the deep, oblivious sleep that follows a grievous wound to the soul itself—the deep curative sleep prescribed by their horrendous civil wars (1914-1918 and 1939-1945), by the ensuing impositions of the Soviet/American occupation and of the occupation’s collaborationist regimes, and, finally, today, by a demographic tsunami promising to sweep away their kind.

The Sleep

 

The Second European Civil War of 1939-1945, however it is interpreted, resulted in a cataclysmic defeat not just for Hitler’s Germany, but for Europe, much of which, quite literally, was reduced to mounds of smoldering rumble. Then, at Yalta, adding insult to injury, the two extra-European super-powers partitioned the Continent, deprived her states of sovereignty, and proceeded to Americanize or Sovietize the ‘systems’ organizing and managing the new postwar European order.

As Europe’s lands and institutions were assumed by alien interests, her ancient roots severed, and her destiny forgotten, Europeans fell into dormition, losing consciousness of who they were as a people and a civilization—believing, as they were encouraged, that they were simply one people, equal among the world’s many peoples.

Worse, for their unpardonable sins—for what Europeans did to Jews in the war, to Blacks in the slave trade, to non-White peoples in general over the course of the last 500 years—for all the terrible sins Europeans have committed, they are henceforth denied the ‘right’ to be a ‘people’. In the Messianic spirit of Communism and Americanism, the Orwellian occupiers and collaborators have since refused them a common origin (roots), a shared history, a tradition, a destiny. This reduces them to a faceless economic-administrative collectivity, which is expected, in the end, to negate the organic basis of its own existence.

The postwar assault on European identity entailed, however, more than a zombifying campaign of guilt-inducement—though this campaign was massive in scale. Europe after Jahre Null was re-organized according to extra-European models and then overwhelmed with imported forms of mass consumerism and entertainment. At the same time and with perhaps greater severity, she was subject to an unprecedented ‘brain-washing’ (in schools, media, the so-called arts, public institutions, and private corporations)—as all Europe’s family of nations, not just the defeated Germans, were collectively made to bear a crushing guilt—under the pretext of the Shoah or the legacy of colonialism/imperialism/slavery—for sins requiring the most extreme penance. Thus tainted, her memory and identity are now publicly stigmatized,

venner-dominique-2101Venner’s Europe is not, of course, the Soviet/New Class-inspired EU, just as she is not the geographical entity labeled ‘Europe’. Rather than a market, a political/administrative structure, a geographic category—rather even than a race (though in a certain sense it is all about race in the end)—Europe for him is a multi-millennial community of closely-related national families made up of Germans, Celts, Slavs, and others, having the same ancient (Indo-European, Borean, Cro-Magnon) roots of blood and spirit: that is, having the same Thirty-thousand Years of European History and Identity.

This makes his Europe a community with a common civilizational heritage that stretches back to the depths of prehistoric time. Historically, the tradition and identity of this heritage has informed Europe’s representations and values in ways distinguishing/identifying her and her peoples from other civilizations and peoples.

Tradition, though, is not  for Venner the metaphysical abstraction of the perennialists or the historical repository of the Burkeans: it is not something outside history nor is it something forged once and for all in the night of time.

Tradition for him is precisely that which does not pass.  It is the perpetual spirit that makes Europeans who they are and lends meaning to their existence, as they change and grow yet remain always the same. It is the source thus of the ‘secret permanences’ upon which their history is worked out.

Tradition may originate in Prehistory, but Venner claims it is preeminently contemporary—just as every origin represents a novel outburst of being. It serves thus as a people’s inner compass. It directs them to what and whom they are. It renders what was formed and inspired in the past into a continually informed present. It is always new and youthful, something very much before rather than behind them. It embodies the longest memory, integral to their identity, and it anticipates a future true to its origin. Life lived in reference to tradition, Venner insists, is life lived in accordance with the ideal it embodies—the ideal of ‘who we are’.

In one sense, Venner’s Europe is the opposite of the America that has distorted Europe’s fate for the last half-century. But he is no knee-jerk anti-American (though the French, in my view, have good cause to be anti-US). He’s also written several books on the US War of Secession, in which much of America’s Cavalier heritage is admired. Knowing something of the opposed tendencies shaping American ‘national’ life, he’s well aware of the moral abyss separating, say, Jesse James from Jay Gould—and what makes one an exemplar of the European spirit and the other its opposite.

Modeled on the Old Testament, not the Old World, Venner claims America’s New World (both as a prolongation and rejection of Europe) was born of New England Calvinism and secularized in John O’Sullivan’s ‘Manifest Destiny’.

Emboldened by the vast, virgin land of their wilderness enterprise and the absence of traditional authority, America’s Seventeenth-century Anglo-Puritan settlers set out, in the spirit of their radical-democratic Low Church crusade, to disown the colony’s Anglo-European parents—which meant disowning the idea (old as Herodotus) that Europe is ‘the home of liberty and true government’.

Believing herself God’s favorite, this New Zion aspired—as a Promised Land of liberty, equality, fraternity—to jettison Europe’s aesthetic and aristocratic standards for the sake of its religiously-inspired materialism. Hence, the bustling, wealth-accumulating, tradition-opposing character of the American project, which offends every former conception of the Cosmos.

New England, to be sure, is not the whole of America, for the South, among another sections, has a quite different narrative, but it was the Yankee version of the ‘American epic’ that became dominant, and it is thus the Yankee version that everywhere wars on Americans of European descent.

Citing Huntington’s Who Are We?, Venner says US elites (‘cosmocrats’, he calls them) pursue a transnational/universalist vision (privileging global markets and human rights) that opposes every ‘nativist’ sense of nation or culture—a transnational/universalist vision the cosmocrats hope to impose on the whole world. For like Russian Bolsheviks and ‘the Bolsheviks of the Seventeenth century’, these money-worshipping liberal elites hate the Old World and seek a new man, Homo Oeconomicus—unencumbered by roots, nature, or culture—and motivated solely by a quantitative sense of purpose.

As a union whose ‘connections’ are essentially horizontal, contractual, self-serving, and self-centered, America’s cosmocratic system comes, as such, to oppose all resistant forms of historic or organic identity—for the sake of a totalitarian agenda intent on running roughshod over everything that might obstruct the scorch-earth economic logic of its Protestant Ethic and Capitalist Spirit. (In this sense, Europe’s resurgence implies America’s demise).

The Shock

What will awaken Europeans from their sleep? Venner says it will be the shock of history—the shock re-awakening the tradition that made them (and makes them) who they are. Such shocks have, in fact, long shaped their history. Think of the Greeks in their Persian Wars; of Charles Martel’s outnumbered knights against the Caliphate’s vanguard; or of the Christian forces under Starhemberg and Sobieski before the gates of Vienna. Whenever Europe approaches Höderlin’s ‘midnight of the world’, such shocks, it seems, serve historically to mobilize the redeeming memory and will to power inscribed in her tradition.

More than a half-century after the trauma of 1945—and the ensuing Americanization, financialization, and third-worldization of continental life—Europeans are once again experiencing another great life-changing, history-altering shock promising to shake them from dormition.

The present economic crisis and its attending catastrophes (in discrediting the collaborators managing the EU, as well as de-legitimatizing the continent’s various national political systems), combined with the unrelenting, disconcerting Islamization of European life (integral to US strategic interests) are—together—forcing Europeans to re-evaluate a system that destroys the national economy, eliminates borders, ravages the culture, makes community impossible, and programs their extinction as a people. The illusions of prosperity and progress, along with the system’s fun, sex, and money (justifying the prevailing de-Europeanization) are becoming increasingly difficult to entertain. Glimmers of a changing consciousness have, indeed, already been glimpsed on the horizon.

The various nationalist-populist parties stirring everywhere in Europe—parties which are preparing the counter-hegemony that one day will replace Europe’s present American-centric leadership—represent one conspicuous sign of this awakening. A mounting number of identitarian, Christian, secular, and political forces resisting Islam’s, America’s, and the EU’s totalitarian impositions at the local level are another sign.

Europeans, as a consequence, are increasingly posing the question: ‘Who are we?’, as they become more and more conscious—especially in the face of the dietary, vestimentary, familial, sexual, religious, and other differences separating them from Muslims—of what is distinct to their civilization and their people, and why such distinctions are worth defending. Historical revivals, Venner notes, are slow in the making, but once awakened there is usually no going back. This is the point, Venner believes, that Europe is approaching today.

The Unexpected

History is the realm of the unexpected. Venner does not subscribe to notions of historical determinism or necessity. In contrast to Marxists and economic determinists, anti-Semites and Spenglerians, he believes there are no monocausal explanations of history, and unlike liberals such as Fukuyama, he believes there’s no escape from (no ‘end’ to) history.

In history, the future is always unknown. Who would have thought in 1980 that Soviet Russia, which seemed to be overtaking the United States in the ‘70s, would collapse within a decade? Historical fatalities are the fatalities of men’s minds, not those of history.

History, moreover, is the confluence of the given, the circumstantial, and the willful. This makes it always open and hence potentially always a realm of the unexpected. And the unexpected (that instance when great possibilities are momentarily posed) is mastered, Venner councils, only in terms of who we are, which means in terms of the tradition and identity defining our project and informing our encounter with the world.

Hence, the significance now of husbanding our roots, our memory, our tradition, for from them will come our will to power and any possibility of transcendence. It’s not for nothing, Dominique Venner concludes, that we are the sons and daughters of Homer, Ulysses, and Penelope.

Excerpt from Pat Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower audiobook

MacMillan has made available to us an excerpt of Pat Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower audiobook. The atmosphere in this recording is, as you may expect, dark, grim, apocalyptic—one cannot help but imagine how this will sound on the other side of the catastrophe, once what we know today and once knew is gone, and this audio, surviving perhaps in fragments, found in some archeological site, petrified but somehow partially recovered and translated, provides the titans of the next manvantara with a glimpse of what it must have been like for people in the vanished American civilisation to live in the final slope of the Kali-Yuga.

This is what incipient civil wars look like!

Mark This Well: This is what incipient civil wars look like!

How do you bridge the divide when you don’t speak the same language? or hold the same truths to be self evident…

Note how the female Black honor student makes the threat that when Whites are the minority we will require affirmative action? What’s interesting and instructive to me about that is what it reveals about her world view and what we can expect from our Black and Hispanic overlords when they assume power.

Because to her Whites are taking these positions, not by merit, but by force. So she is telegraphing the presumption that when the tables are turned that they will do thing they accuse us of, which we aren’t doing, because they believe we are.

Exit question: why was importing thousands of Blacks to pick cotton a good idea which can only end well?

Follow up: and why would we assume that importing millions of Hispanic helots would turn out any better?

“Are you a white man? If you’re a white man, then shut the f**k up about race, because you don’t know sh*t other than how to rape and kill.”

Try to imagine having an actual conversation with this turd…

Lots more here.

Happiness Tied To Racial Solidarity?

Well, except for Whites of course

Racial Identity Tied to Happiness, Study Finds

ScienceDaily (Mar. 7, 2011)–African American people who identify more strongly with their racial identity are generally happier, according to a study led by psychology researchers at Michigan State University.

The study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, appears in the current issue of Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, a research journal published by the American Psychological Association.

“This is the first empirical study we know of that shows a relationship between racial identity and happiness,” said Stevie C.Y. Yap, doctoral candidate in psychology at MSU and lead researcher on the project.

Previous research has found a relationship between racial identity and favorable outcomes such as self-esteem, Yap said, but none has made the link with happiness.

For the study, the researchers surveyed black adults in Michigan. The results suggest the more the participants identified with being black–or the more being black was an important part of who they are–the more happy they were with life as a whole, Yap said.

The study also explored the reasons behind the connection. Yap said it may be fueled by a sense of belongingness–that is, blacks with a strong sense of racial identity may feel more connected to their racial group, which in turn makes them happy.

Can a fact be racist?

Either the Republican Party puts an end to mass immigration, or mass immigration will put an end to the Republican Party

Steve Sailer reviews Pat Buchanan’s new book Suicide of a Superpower: Buchanan wants a moratorium on new immigration until unemployment falls to 6%. He points out that to bring in foreign workers when 23 million Americans are still underemployed or out of work is to put corporate profits ahead of country. In addition, he wants to reform legal immigration in the long run to bring in those who are most easily assimilated. An interesting point that he makes is that in 2008, John McCain won only 45% of the Catholic vote, which comprised 27% of the electorate. If Republicans can raise their 2012 nominee’s share of the Catholic vote from 45% to 52% that seven-point gain would add more votes than going from 20% of the Jewish vote to 100%. Another interesting fact that Buchanan points out is that polls show that young people, a demographic that Republicans lost badly in 2008, are more highly averse to affirmative action than are older voters. Therefore, coming out against racial quotas may be a good way for the GOP to win over young white voters.

Predominantly black city struggles to keep lights on

Like many swaths of Detroit, Keith Wicks’ historic Indian Village neighborhood has remained largely dark at night after vandals destroyed transformers in nearly every streetlight pole that powers them. On a recent rainy day, Wicks, 64, a retired GM engineer who has lived in Detroit for decades, watched as city Public Lighting workers put new transformers at the top of the aging wooden poles. Just days later, those streetlights were out — again. The growing lack of public lighting has become a troubling problem for cash-starved Detroit, where entire stretches of neighborhoods and thoroughfares — such as portions of the Southfield Freeway — are feeling the effects. The war to keep the lights on in Detroit is a serious one. Thieves, antiquated equipment and a lack of funding have made it impossible for city officials to catch up to the problem. City officials estimate that 15% – 20% of the 88,000 lights in the Motor City are not working, and they acknowledge the figure could be as high as 50% in some neighborhoods. Providing lighting to the city costs $10.7 million annually. And often when they are fixed, they break down weeks and months later — or thieves steal the high-grade cable for its copper materials.

The Census Bureau has now fixed at 2041 the year when whites become a minority in a country where the Founding Fathers had restricted citizenship to free white persons of good moral character

In every presidential election since 1992, Hispanics have given 60% – 70% of their votes to the Democratic candidate. Hispanics, largely poor and working class, are beneficiaries of a cornucopia of government goods — from free education to food stamps to free health care. Few Latinos pay federal income taxes. Most immigrants now come from Third World countries and do not bring the academic or professional skills of European-Americans. The decline in academic test scores here at home and in international competition is likely to continue, as more and more of the children taking those tests will be African-American and Hispanic. For though we have spent trillions over four decades, we have not closed the racial gap in education. White and Asian children continue to outscore black and Hispanic children. In addition, the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is 51% while the black rate is 71%. Sociologist Robert Putnam found that the greater the racial and ethnic diversity in a community, the less social capital there is — i.e., people in diverse settings are far less disposed to cooperate for social goals. They retreat into enclaves of their own kind. Putnam found social capital at the lowest level he ever measured in Los Angeles, the most diverse community on earth. Yet, by 2042, the demography of every American city will approximate that of Los Angeles. In short, a non-white America is a Third World America.

Immigrants are responsible for about 17% of the entire federal deficit

In addition, 80% of U.S. population growthbetween now and mid-century will be from new immigrants and their U.S.-born children. Also, over the course of their lifetimes, most immigrants will receive more Social Security benefits than they pay in Social Security taxes. Many legal immigrants enter the country at fairly advanced ages. These folks do very well by Social Security. Some work for as little as ten years and yet receive 70% – 80% of the benefit received by comparable native-born workers who have contributed to the system over their entire working lifetime. George Borjas, the Harvard economist, finds that Social Security is an important factor in the decision to come to this country. Older immigrants know that if they do not work long enough to qualify for Social Security, a safety net of welfare programs is there for them.

Mexican cartels are recruiting Texas high school students to support their drug, human, currency and weapon smuggling operations on both sides of the Texas/Mexico border, the Texas Department of Public Safety has said

The departmentissued a news release warning parents that their children are at risk to Mexican cartels and have been since 2009. Several incidents involving U.S. teens and Mexican drug cartels recently prompted the statement, Steven McCraw, the department’s director, said. “In ’09 we started seeing that happening with the bridge cases, when the cartels started getting our teenage students to move drugs across the bridge,” McCraw said. “Texas teenagers provide unique compatibility to the cartels. They’re U.S. citizens, they speak Spanish, they’re able to operate on both sides of the border and they’re expendable labor.” Because they’re juveniles, it’s not likely that they’ll be charged by the federal prosecutors, he said. Recently, Texas officers caught a 12-year-old boy in a border county driving a stolen pickup truck containing more than 800 pounds of marijuana. Also, two other juveniles from the Rio Grande Valley were lured into Mexico and kidnapped, eventually being released after a ransom was paid by the families, according to McCraw. “There’s some indication that they were subjected to the temptations to working with the gangs and cartels,” he said. Teens are sometimes offered as little as $50 to act as drivers for the cartels or the local gangs who support them, McCraw said. The Texas border region represents 9.7% of the state’s population, yet has 19.2% of the state’s juvenile felony drug referrals and 21.8% of the state’s juvenile felony gang referrals, according to the release.

A study of the ethnically diverse country of Switzerland, shows that political and geographical boundaries have served to keep the peace between the different groups

Switzerland, the very modern symbol of a peaceful country, might have gone another direction, were it not for the way the differing groups (French, German and Italian) and religions (Catholic and Protestant) have been physical grouped within the borders of the small country. Those of German descent make up the largest group, taking up most of the north, central and eastern parts of the country while those with Italian backgrounds live predominately in the south; those of French descent have settled mainly in the west. Not surprisingly, those of the Catholic faith live predominately in the southern and middle parts of the country, due to the influx of those of Italian descent, while those of the Protestant faith live mainly in the rest of the country. In Switzerland, areas of the country are partitioned into what are known as cantons, which are similar to states in other countries except that each has much more autonomy than is usual. Researchers found that the main reason the groups all manage to get along, is because they are separated from one another. Each canton is comprised of almost all the same types of people, essentially ruling themselves, thus, there is very little overlap. The research does shed a rather bright light on the idea that simple separation can lead to peace. Maybe we should try this here in the United States as a way of dealing with our nation’s racial problems? 

 

 

US Losing Ability to Pay off Debt

US Losing Ability to Pay off Debt

by Jeff Davis

The first official warning sign has now been posted. It isn’t just the individual states like California and New York and Illinois that are about to disappear into a financial black hole of bankruptcy and default. It’s all 50 states at once.

The London Financial Times reports: “Standard & Poor’s issued a stark warning to Washington on Monday, cutting its outlook on US sovereign debt for the first time and throwing more fuel on the raging debate over America’s swollen deficits. The agency kept America’s credit rating at triple A but for the first time since it started rating US debt 70 years ago, cut its outlook from ‘stable’ to ‘negative’. A negative outlook means there is a one-third chance of a downgrade in the next two years. Doubts about US creditworthiness could threaten the dollar’s use as a global reserve currency amid the rise of rivals such as China that have better growth prospects and fewer fiscal challenges.”

China also has a large, intelligent, and racially homogeneous population. You know, like America used to have. What we’re seeing is the transition of America from a White industrialized nation to a Third World nation. One third of our population comes from the Third World and government quotas force employers to hire people with brown and black faces regardless of how unqualified they may be.

The Financial Times notes: “The outlook cut highlights the damage to US creditworthiness from a decade of unfunded tax cuts and spending increases followed by massive fiscal stimulus during the recession. The US will have a deficit of 10.8 per cent of gross domestic product during 2011, according to the International Monetary Fund, and net government debt will exceed 70 per cent of GDP. The cut also reflects deep uncertainty about whether the polarised US political system is capable of thrashing out a deal to tackle the long-term fiscal costs of an aging population. More than two years after the beginning of the recent crisis, US policymakers have still not agreed on how to reverse recent fiscal deterioration or address longer-term fiscal pressures,’ said Nikola Swann, the primary S&P credit analyst for the decision.”

Well, voting out Obama and the Democrats couldn’t hurt.

Look, the handwriting is on the wall, and a few people are even starting to see it. At some point this whole house of cards is going to collapse. There will simply be no more money, and then Obama will start printing it, and so there will be money all right–it just won’t be worth anything. The African Communist Robert Mugabe tried printing up money and bankrupted his country and our African Communist, Barack Obama is apparently just as clueless.

Eventually, the flow of goodies to the violent, greedy and non-producing minorities will be cut off. And what then? Government hand out programs like welfare, Section 8 housing and racial quotas for jobs were meant to appease the Blacks so they would stop rioting. Don’t expect the Blacks to take the loss of their government check very well. Given a choice of doing manual work or a lot more muggings and burglary of White people; I think we all know what they will do.

The United States of America was once considered to be the source of nearly all the money and wealth in the world, and when there was an unfettered free enterprise system and a racially homogeneous, employed, and productive White population in charge, so it was. Now the United States no longer manufactures anything, one out of five people is unemployed and inflation is becoming increasingly noticeable.

To give you an idea just how crazy Congress is; they are now running a national deficit of 1.6 trillion dollars per year. Apparently not one Democrat considers this crazy or out of control. There is “talk” about cutting the deficit down to one trillion dollars per year, but that’s apparently all it is: just talk. The reality is that millions of Third World people are stealing jobs and promotions thanks to racial quotas, kicking productive White people into the ranks of the unemployed and forcing Third World incompetence into every American company. The rest of those 100 million Third World people living in the US today are getting a First World lifestyle on the backs of White taxpayers. The situation is getting critically bad, we need to expel the Third World invaders or they will cripple our economy.

That’s not light at the end of the tunnel; it’s an oncoming train.
