A Courageous Jew's View of the Holocaust Industry

How odd of God to chose the Jews.
But odder still are those who chose the Jewish god
 but spurn the Jews. 

Except, not really.

 Jews are for the most part like members of any other group, good people, or as good as people get, anyhow. Unfortunately, they are represented by obnoxious organizations such as B'nai Brith, the Anti-Defamation League, and much of the media and entertainment industries, which endlessly complain about the wicked anti-Semitism of those among whom Jews live.

Such complaints have two objectives. First, to stoke paranoia among diaspora Jews, thus to discourage the assimilation of Jews to the host civilization. Second, to justify the monstrous crimes of the Jewish State of Israel against the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants. In addition, endless false complaints of widespread anti-Semitism irritate some people to the point of expressing views that are promptly latched upon to justify Jewish complaints of anti-Semitism.

This exploitation of supposed Jewish victimhood was examined in detail by a courageous Jewish student at the University of Toronto whose 2010 Masters degree thesis was entitled:

The Victimhood of the Powerful: White Jews, Zionism and the Racism of Hegemonic Holocaust Education

For all those who wish for good relations among Jews and Gentiles, it is worth noting this courageous statement. 

Abstract: This paper focuses on issues of Jewish identity, whiteness and victimhood within hegemonic Holocaust education. I argue that today, Jewish people of European descent enjoy white privilege and are among the most socio-economically advantaged groups in the West. Despite this privilege, the organized Jewish community makes claims about Jewish victimhood that are widely accepted within that community and within popular discourse in the West. I propose that these claims to victimhood are no longer based in a reality of oppression, but continue to be propagated because a victimized Jewish identity can produce certain effects that are beneficial to the organized Jewish community and the Israeli nation-state. I focus on two related Holocaust education projects – the March of the Living and the March of Remembrance and Hope – to show how Jewish victimhood is instrumentalized in ways that obscure Jewish privilege, deny Jewish racism and promote the interests of the Israeli nation-state.

What Is Intelligence?

Over at the Unz Review, an innocent named Sam complains that in writing about IQ, resident psychologist, James Thomson:
… does not address that/those portion(s) of the human brain that deal with intelligence.
But like the psychologists, Sam has the wrong model. The brain isn’t like a computer. There is no central processing unit that determines computing power, FLOPS or IQ.

The brain is the product of evolution. It is built on the Rube Goldberg principle. A bunch of junk put together and then endlessly tested in the struggle for existence, endlessly modified by mutation, and endlessly retested.

The end product of this evolutionary process does all kinds of amazing things in amazing ways, but not in the neat tidy ways a good engineer would design things to work, but maybe completely crazy ways, but ways that work nevertheless — somehow, just…

The result is that intelligence is not one thing. It is not the product of one bit of brain or one brain module. It is the product of numerous neurological modules and networks, each doing its own thing, each dependent on its own particular structure and biochemistry, each subject in its development to its own set of controlling genes. Did you know that, in the male brain, there’s even a specialized knot of neurons that seems to have no function except to light up at a girl’s smile? Cool.

That’s why IQ testing is nonsense. It’s possible to be both a genius and an idiot — in different areas of mental activity: an obvious fact, but one that seems rarely to have crossed the mind of a psychologist.

But the IQ-ist's notion of intelligence is much wronger than would result merely from the mistaken notion that intelligence is a single thing embodied in a single bit of the brain, equally involved in the composition of a symphony, the formulation of a mathematical theorem, or the deftness of the artist's or surgeon's hand, and hence to be viewed as a single variable defined by one number, or intelligence quotient.

The IQ-ist compounds the error of assuming that the brain has a central processing unit that determines the intelligence of every thought or action, by making the further error of assuming that intelligence is strongly genetically determined. This idea leads IQ-ists naturally to a toxic belief in the existence of immutable racial and class hierarchies in intelligence, an idea bolstered by test results that blatantly confuse cultural and environmental differences in cognitive development with racial and class differences in genetic endowment for intelligence.

It is true that intelligence has a genetic basis, as does every other organismal trait. But the influence of genetics is always modified by environment. Raise a child in an iron cage without human contact, as was the fate of the Russian Tsar, Ivan VI (1740-1764), crowned at the age of two months but deposed a year later and then held in solitary confinement until his murder 23 years later, and it will severely stunt the mind, as was the case with poor Ivan. From that we can deduce that  intelligence is not fixed, but is something that grows or withers in response to experience and use.

That, in turn, means that intelligence is not fixed genetically or socially. It develops over time, increasing or decreasing according to circumstances. Hence, the idle Harvard undergraduate with a perfect SAT score may be outpaced intellectually by the committed student of lesser SAT-endorsed intelligence who strives for mastery whether in academia, socially or in some other sphere of endeavor.  

Accompanying growth or atrophy of intellectual skills occur radical changes in brain structure. During infancy,  hundreds of thousands of the brain's synaptic connections are eliminated every second over a period of many months. Later, during adolescence, much of the tissue of the cerebral cortex, the supposed seat of intelligence, is eliminated. Such developmental processes undermine the idea, common among IQ-ists, that intelligence is a function of brain mass. The implication, rather, is that, depending on mental effort and experience, intelligence grows or fails to grow whatever the individuals genetic endowment. 

And that is obvious when you come to think of it. Give a plumber a plumbing problem and he'll likely figure it out faster than you could, even if you've got a high IQ and understand hydraulics. Same in any field: hard work and experience increases performance, including problem-solving skill, and that equals increased intelligence.

Top US Biowarfare Expert, Professor, Lawyer: COVID19 Is a Biological Weapon Escaped from the Wuhan Biowarfare Lab.



"All BSL laboratories exist solely for the purpose of developing biological warfare agents."

"You just can't believe anything the Chinese Government, the WHO, the CDC are telling you. They all lie. They know what's going on, so you going to have to figure it out as best you can. It does seem to me ... that this was a DNA genetically engineered biological agent leaking out of Wuhan that has gain-of-function properties ... I think they are doing something with SARS to make it more lethal and more infectious.

Is this guy on the level, spewing propaganda, or just nuts?

Feminists for Global Genocide, No. 79

Patricia MacCormack, a professor of philosophy who "researches" feminism, queer theory, posthuman theory, horror film, body modification, animal rights/abolitionism, cinesexuality, and ethics” at Anglia Ruskin University in the United Kingdom calls for people to stop having babies so as to let the human race go extinct to fight climate change.

One might have thought that advocating national suicide, let alone global genocide, from a professor's chair, would be treated by the law as the treason that it undoubtedly is. But in post-Blair's Britain, apparently it's state funded.

What's particularly annoying about this ugly, immigrant alleged scholar and feminist traitor is that she won't set an example to those she seeks to lead by offing herself.

And what's totally bizarre is why the Brits allow such vile people as Patricia MacCormack to indoctrinate their children.

Is China Lying About the Numbers Infected with the Wuhan Coronavirus?

A message written in the snow alongside the Tonghui river reads "Goodbye Li Wenliang!"
On February 1, China's social medium Tencent momentarily reported that there were 154 thousand Novel Corona Virus infections in China and 25 thousand related deaths, or about ten times the official Chinese Government numbers.

Vox Popoli questioned the high mortality on the ground that if the Chinese mortality rate were 16% one would have expected a comparable rate outside of China, which is not the case. This evoked some illuminating reader comments, including the following:

10. The real Chinese death rate is the death rate with no medical care, in unheated buildings, in winter. The Western death rate is what you get with basic life support and central heating. 16% versus 2% might be plausible.

24. The high death toll might be accounted for because it's been designed (nature or otherwise) to kill Asian men.

25. You can see the real infection rate more accurately reflected in the number of infected among evacuees: Belgium, 1/9; Japan, 3/200; South Korea, 11/368. These numbers are statistically impossible with the reported infection rates.

58. They wouldn’t have quarantined 50 million plus people, have crematoriums working 24/7, be spraying the streets, be frantically building “hospitals”, limiting testing kits, etc., if the real numbers of infected and dead were the official figures.
But apparently you would be at less risk of contracting the novel Corona virus in Wuhan, China than on the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Thus far, 61 of the 3700 people on board the Diamond Princess have been diagnosed with the virus for an infection rate of 2%* versus a reported rate of only 0.008% in the Wuhan quarantine zone.

Another anomaly in the reported infection rates is the difference between the rate for foreign nationals in China and Chinese nationals. China has reported 19 infections among foreign nationals in China, which out of a population of 50,000 foreign nationals in China, means an infection rate of 0.00038%. Applied to the population of Chinese nationals, that rate of infection would equate to a total of 530,000 infections.

Even if the population of foreign nationals in China is ten times that reported, an equivalent infection rate among Chinese nationals would be over fifty thousand, which is almost twice the rate China is currently reporting.

However, if the number of foreign nationals in China totals a million or so, then the infection rate among foreign nationals would confirm the validity of the numbers reported by the Chinese Government.

___

* The number infected with the Wuhan bat flu on the Diamond Princess has now doubled to 136, for an infectrion rate of 4%.

Is the Wuhan Coronavirus Uncontained?

Based on Government of China reports, Coronavirus infections in China had reached a total more than four thousand on January 27, having increased at a daily rate of 53% over the previous 11 days.

By January 2, according to government report, the number of infections in China had reached over fourteen thousand, many fewer than the fifty-four thousand that would have resulted had growth in the infection rate continued at 53% a day. Thus, it would appear that control measures adopted in China are limiting the spread of the disease.

But on February 1, China's Tencent briefly reported 154,023 infections, more than ten times the officially reported total, before revising the number to the official count.

So is the coronavirus epidemic in China being contained, or is it raging out of control with an infection rate now doubling every 24 hours?

To that question, the answer should soon be clear. With a doubling time of 24 hours, infections will exceed one million within a week, 128 million in two weeks and more than the entire population of China in less than three weeks.

Let's hope that the Government of China's statistics are correct.

Is the Wuhan Coronavirus a Bioweapon?

The Coronavirus which thus far has been reported by the Government of China to have killed hundreds of people in Wuhan and surrounding Chinese cities, appears to have been genetically engineered. Specifically, though resembling a Corona virus from bats, it has what appear to be genome inserts from the HIV virus.

A newly published BioRxiv paper by Pradhan et al., entitled: Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag. Specifically, they report:

We found 4 insertions in the spike glycoprotein (S) which are unique to the 2019-nCoV and are not present in other coronaviruses. Importantly, amino acid residues in all the 4 inserts have identity or similarity to those in the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag. Interestingly, despite the inserts being discontinuous on the primary amino acid sequence, 3D-modelling of the 2019-nCoV suggests that they converge to constitute the receptor binding site. The finding of 4 unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV, all of which have identity /similarity to amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1 is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature.

If the virus is a product of genetic engineering, the person responsible may be Dr. Peng Zhou of the Wuhan Institute of Virology where he is Leader of the Bat Virus Infection and Immunization Group.

That the Coronavirus epidemic is due to the deliberate release, or accidental escape, of a bioweapon, or that Dr. Peng Zhou has anything to do with the creation of a bioweapon, is on the evidence available, mere a surmise and may be entirely false.

Buy-the-Dip, No. 79: Boeing: Another Great Investment Opportunity

Boeing is another great opportunity in our series: Buy-the-Dip.

Trading at a small multiple of just under 50, this is a stock that'll be going places just as soon as Boeing gets its 737MAX certified to go places [re-certified, that is], as the following interview with CEO, David Calhoun, reveals.

CNBC: You believe in this airplane?

Calhoun: Absolutely, absolutely ...

CNBC: Why should people have confidence in the [737]MAX?

Calhoun: If we didn't believe we were going to field an airplane that was safer than the safest demonstrated airplane that's out there today, we wouldn't do it.

So says the accountant with no expertise in engineering, let alone aviation, but the author of the CD album "Day Drinkin'".



Seems like Calhoun must have had a few before the interview.

Anyone who knows anything about the problems with the 737MAX knows it's a fundamentally flawed aircraft, being inherently unstable and requiring a computer-controlled stabilization mechanism to keep it in level flight.

So even if the totally crap stabilization mechanism (MCAS, maneuvering characteristics Augmentation System, which is bullshit for Anti-Stall System or ASS) worked with total reliability, which it totally didn't, the plane would be vastly inferior in fundamental safety to any of a multitude of planes already out there.

How I Misjudged Tesla: An Idiot's Confession

As an investor I am an imbecile. I have this stupid idea that a company is worth only as much as is justified by the profits it makes, or might make. Tesla's flight into the clear blue empyrean reveals my idiocy, as the following analysis by Wolf Richter proves:

How much should Tesla be worth, if it ever makes a big profit?

In terms of earnings per share, Tesla’s annual net loss translates into EPS of -$4.92. So if Tesla is ever able to make an annual net income of $862 million – a swing of $1.7 billion – it would have EPS of about +$4.92. Now, this assumes that Tesla doesn’t sell any shares or hand out any shares to executives in their compensation packages, which would dilute EPS. So let’s assume the share-count stays the same for once.

In that glorious future year where Tesla makes $4.92 a share, instead of losing $4.92 a share, what would it be worth, as an automaker in a stagnant saturated industry? At a PE ratio of 20 (giving Tesla the benefit of all doubts), its shares on that glorious day in the future when it finally has an annual EPS of $4.92, the stock would still be richly priced at 20 x $4.92, giving it a share price of $98.40.

Just to point out how crazy this has gotten: This evening – upon the announcement of 2% revenue growth and a 25% plunge in quarterly net income despite $133 million in regulatory credits, and of an annual loss of $862 million – Tesla’s shares spiked nearly 12% to $648.
And to think that, after doubling my money, I sold Tesla at $70. Indeed, I am such a money moron that even now I cannot see how I was wrong. Maybe, I suffer the consequence of having run my own business for too long: the experience inculcates this mad idea that the whole point of a business is to make a profit, whereas in fact, a flashly loss is, well, more profitable.

Boeing Got the Monkey Management Virus from Jack Welch's GE

Jim McNerney was President, CEO, and Chairman of Boeing from 2005 through 2015. He was Chairman in 2016. During a quarterly earnings conference call on 24 July 2014 with Boeing’s senior management he had this exchange with a reporter:

Bloomberg News: Jim, you have a birthday coming up next month. …Will you be at your desk, and has the Board approved you staying on past age 65?

Jim McNerney, CEO: Yes, the heart will still be beating. The employees will still be cowering {laughing}. I’ll be working hard; there’s no end in sight.

As Fabius Maximus comments:
[McInerny] learned that workers are cattle while working from 1982 – 2001 as an executive at GE under an architect of modern corporate America – Jack Welch. 

Under his leadership, Boeing decayed to a shell of the once-great aerospace giant. For this he was lavishly paid. He earned $80 million in 2013-2015 and retired with a $4 million for 15 years pension – plus uncountable other perks.
So now those giants of America's corporate leadership have shown the way, every ambitious American executive will be intently focused on looting the company at the expense of workers, shareholders and the mass of unfortunate victims who depend on the company's product or service.

Death of the West: Autism and Atheism

Vox Popoli postulates a correlation between autism and atheism.

I first postulated my hypothesis concerning a link between the autism spectrum and atheism back in 2007 in response to a post by PZ Myers at Pharyngula in which he and other atheists were bragging about their relatively high Asperger's Quotient scores. I wrote: "Obviously, more comprehensive and scientific tests would be advised before any definite conclusion can be reached, but these initial observations do appear to indicate a possibility that atheism could be nothing more than a minor mental disorder."

 In that connection it may be noted that alleles for autism are reported to overlap broadly with alleles for high intelligence.

This correlation supports the notion that atheism is a consequence of rational thought. Certainly, there's little rational basis for theism, other than the fact that a society without a religion is doomed to self-destruction as is evident in the West today.

Unfortunately, it requires more than a couple of extra IQ points to recognize the necessity of irrational faith. It takes a civilization and an proper education system, both of which the Western nations have now jettisoned.

Mass Immigration Is Bad for Britain (and Every Other Nation of European People)



This guy is suave, but he won't say that when you have a below replacement fertility rate and you allow millions of immigrants to compete with your own people for jobs and housing, you are engaged in genocide and population replacement.

Raphael Lemkin, who coined the term genocide, said of the term that it may refer simply to:
a coordinated plan aimed at destruction of the essential foundations of the life of national groups so that these groups wither and die like plants that have suffered a blight.
Such is precisely the fate of the English in their own capital city, of London, where in many boroughs the English are not even the largest minority.

The 'Great Replacement' In Switzerland

A recent study by the Federal Office of Statistics showed the over-representation of certain nationalities among welfare recipients. Thus at the end 2017, 83% of Somalians and 54% of Eritreans and Congolese living in Switzerland are on welfare. More generally, of the 350,000 beneficiaries of social assistance, 57% are foreigners.

A study by the Zurich university of sciences came to the conclusion that 21% of young Muslims living in Switzerland consider that sharia law is superior to Swiss law.

... a Swiss central Islamic committee has been established with some 3,500 members. The organization has been accused of encouraging its members to engage in polygamy and female genital mutilation. Its members are also being sued for supporting Al Qaeda.

.... According the Pew Research Center, around 6% of the population is Muslim, around 400,000 people. According to Pew’s forecasts, the Muslim population could in 2050 make up between 8% and 12% of the Swiss population.

... the vote against mass immigration did not lead to new rules for the movement of people between Switzerland and the European Union, because of the gridlock of the EU institutions.

Harry and Meghan, the Super-Sensitive Royals

Harry and Meghan claim to have been driven from Harry's native Britain by British racism, the Daily Mail reporting that:
... In November 2016, Harry lashed out at the 'wave of abuse and harassment' the US actress had faced from the media – citing the 'racial undertones of comment pieces' among his concerns.
Oh dear, what a sad state of affairs we have reached when even members of the Royal Family claim victim status.

The mail further reports that:
...The couple are said to see their long-term future in the US – but not, while President Donald Trump is President with friends claiming while the couple plan to live in Canada at first their ultimate aim is to have a home and business in Los Angeles.
So Canada is not exactly where they want to be, just a kind of holding zone until the US of A has a president they find more acceptable than the one elected by the American people.
Meantime, the Mail reports, poor Liz II is under the gun:
... to find a way forward because the Sussexes could give a tell-all interview to their friend Oprah Winfrey... if they do not get their way...
Which sounds like, you know, blackmail. 
And just to give the threat greater credibility, Harry's close friend, broadcaster Tom Bradby, warned that in an interview with Oprah Winfrey they could:
... 'sound off' about the royal family's 'racism and sexism'
And blackmail with a big prize at stake:
... The Duke of Sussex wants his 93-year-old grandmother, father and brother to let him and his wife keep their royal titles while living abroad and grabbing 'financial independence' to earn their own money using the Sussex brand, which experts say could be worth £400million.
And there you have it. All that lubbly jubbly to be grabbed selling the SussexRoyal insignia while telling those stuffy Royal Brits to go stuff themselves. 
Unfortunately, for the SussexRoyal pair, they may find Canadian "racism" as appalling as British Racism, if comments in the Vancouver Sun are anything to go by. Thus one Jannick Slavik writes:

... So Trudeau has approved an initial 1,000,000 RCMP security expense for these leaches?

What a joke

And airhead Megan says she wants to stay in Canada until After Trump is gone?

It’s going to be another 5 years of expense for these losers
And that comment raises another question. In their declared intention to live outside the United States as long as Donald Trump remains President, Harry and wife are taking a political stance that is  clearly incompatible with the political impartiality of Britain's constitutional monarchy.

The implication is clear: Prince Harry should give up his Royal title. Then, he and Mrs Harry Mountbatten Windsor* can live wherever they want for whatever reason they want, whether their reasons, however political, are privately held or publicly declared.

This necessary transition from public figures to private individuals will free Harry and Meg to get as rich as croesus without causing Britain's constitutional monarchy any taint of either  commercialization or politicization.

_____
* The original family name was Battenberg, which might suit Harry, reduced to the status of a regular Canadian, better than Mountbatten Windsor, the cumbersome made-up name that he currently goes by.

Greta Thunberg: A Victim of Power Hungry Parents

When I wrote earlier about autistic teenager Greta Thunberg, I argued that it was entirely reasonable for her to condemn adults for the climate-change catastrophe she believes they have set in motion, since it has been the adult world that has terrorized youth with the fear of human-caused climate change.

But now, we learn, that Greta is not a precocious teenager with a rational case against older generations, but merely a puppet exploited by those in the adult world seeking to terrorized children with the specter of catastrophic climate change.

Thus, as Zero Hedge reports:

A Thursday evening software update at Facebook accidentally allowed anyone to view exactly who is posting under the accounts of public figures, businesses and other entities, according to Wired.

The result? For starters, some 3 million followers of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg have been reading posts made by her father, Svante Thunberg, and a climate activist in India who serves as a delegate at the UN's Climate Change organization, Adarsh Prathap.

So there we have it. Greta's actions are not the rational response of a child to the terror induced by her parents generation, but the gyrations of a puppet used by her parents to terrorize children.

Boeing: Building Planes Designed by Clowns Supervised By Monkeys

Those whom the Gods would destroy, they first make mad. At Boeing Corp. madness has grown from the top down beginning years ago when the management decided in its wisdom to locate the headquarters staff in Chicago, several thousand miles from the main manufacturing plant in Seattle, WA. 

Without a bunch of engineers, machinists, electricians to bug them with the everyday problems of a manufacturing operation the management was thus free to focus on financial engineering and other  matters that it considered of real importance to the success of the company.

Having so little need of engineering expertise, the Board largely dispensed with engineers, until there was only one who remained, namely Dennis Muilenberg, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board.

But as of January 13, Boeing will have no aeronautical expertise whatever on the Board of Directors. Replacing Muelenberg as CEO, will be Dave Calhoun, a graduate in accounting and a published author. His published works including:
How Companies Win, and
 Profiting from Demand-Driven Business Models No Matter What (even when the planes you produce aren't safe -- just asking)
And he's a musician too, having issued, among other albums, a CD entitled:
Day drinkin'.
So it's not so surprising to find that in a batch of internal memos that Boeing was obliged to make public an employee wrote of the Boeing 737MAX that it was:

"designed by clowns, who are in turn supervised by monkeys..."
or that in another internal communication, a Boeing test pilot remarked:

"Would you put your family on a Max simulator trained aircraft? I wouldn’t." 
In reference to such remarks the planemaker described the communications as "completely unacceptable," which confirms that Boeing truly is run by monkeys who think that engineering know how is irrelevant to the management of an aircraft manufacturing company. All you need, apparently, is to know how to  profit "from Demand-Driven Business Models No Matter What", as Boeing's new CM (Chief Monkey) wrote.

The Crackbrained Sussexes: Dictating Terms to the Queen

Here's the website of Prince Harry and Meghan. Future arrangements between themselves and the British Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II, is a matter, they seem to believe, that they can dictate to her Majesty the Queen without discussion or negotiation. Thus, after explaining their rights as they see them, and their entitlement to funding from the British state, they proclaim their fealty to Her Majesty the Queen thus :

... The Duke and Duchess proudly carry out official overseas visits in support of Her Majesty The Queen
Very good of them, I'm sure.

But do they not understand that the Queen is not some old lady in need of "support," but is, rather, the embodiment, and head, of the British State and, therefore, as British subjects, it is not for Harry and Meghan to graciously extend their support to the Queen, but rather for them to support Her Majesty the Queen to any degree and in any way that Her Majesty may request or require.

Sadly, therefore, the presumption of the Sussexes in attempting to dictate their relationship with the Monarchy is completely nutty and potentially very dangerous to their own future well-being.

The British State will not be dictated to by anyone, and certainly not by crackpots, even crackpot members of the Royal family.

Sadly, Harry seems to be following in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana, who in her own crazy way did her best to destroy the British Monarchy and ended up dead.

The Daily Mail Reports:

The couple secretly registered their new Sussex Royal website as early as last March without telling the Royal Family;

Harry ignored a personal request by the Queen to keep negotiations about his wish to break free private and not make a public statement;

The couple also chose to disregard pleas from their closest aides on Monday night that they should hold off from releasing a statement out of respect for his grandmother;

Sources said Harry had even suggested his mental health would be at risk if he didn't facilitate a change in his position;

The Royal Family are not planning to strip Harry and Meghan of their titles as courtiers fear it would look vengeful and reminiscent of the treatment meted out to Harry's mother, Princess Diana;

Scotland Yard will carry out a full review of the couple's security as the costs of their taxpayer-funded police protection looked set to spiral into the millions.

Trump's Vicious Method of Trade Negotiation

The complete (translated) words of Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi’s speech to parliament:

...I visited China and signed an important agreement with them to undertake the construction [instead of the US*]. Upon my return, Trump called me to ask me to reject this agreement. When I refused, he threatened to unleash huge demonstrations against me that would end my premiership.

Huge demonstrations against me duly materialized and Trump called again to threaten that if I did not comply with his demands, then he would have Marine snipers on tall buildings target protesters and security personnel alike in order to pressure me.

I refused again and handed in my resignation. To this day the Americans insist on us rescinding our deal with the Chinese.

After this, when our Minister of Defense publicly stated that a third party was targeting both protestors and security personnel alike (just as Trump had threatened he would do), I received a new call from Trump threatening to kill both me and the Minister of Defense if we kept on talking about this “third party”.

That's Trump's "great trade deals" pitch:

"Buy our overpriced stuff, give us half your oil, or I'll send in our Maidan snipers, create a riot and overthrow your government."

And why is Abdul-Mahdi blowing the whistle on Trump? Perhaps he thinks that by exposing Trump's Hitlerian tactics, the God-Emperor may be deterred from incinerating this troublesome satrap with a Reaper drone strike.

* According to Abdul-Mahdi, the price Trump demanded for completion of infrastructure and electricity grid projects, i.e., repair of the war damage inflicted by the US,  was 50% of Iraq's oil revenues.

A Word to the Beautiful and the Rich

Ricky Gervais, at the Golden Globes Award Ceremony

So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a political platform to make a political speech. You're in no position to lecture the public about anything, you know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and fuck off. OK?

....Apple roared into the TV game with The Morning Show, a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweatshops in China. Well, you say you're woke but the companies you work for in China — unbelievable. Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service you'd call your agent, wouldn't you?

Europe is Dying But Who Cares? No one, Apparently

The dying of the Western nations has been evident for years.

The Death of the West is not a prediction of what is going to happen. It is a depiction of what is happening now. First World nations are dying. They face a mortal crisis, not because of something happening in the Third World, but because of what is not happening at home and in the homes of the First World. Western fertility rates have been falling for decades. Outside of Muslim Albania, no European nation is producing enough babies to replace its population. … In a score of countries the old are already dying off faster than the young are being born. … There is no sign of a turnaround. Now the absolute numbers of Europeans have begun to fall.

Patrick Buchanan, The Death of the West

But who Cares? Merkel, Macron, Trudeau or Trump?

No one, apparently.

Not in government, anyhow.

Still the Politically Correct states of the Western World promote girls' education, and careers for women who are far too intelligent, apparently, to spend their time raising babies. Unless they're on welfare, of course. Then maternity is all expenses paid with the taxes derived from those hard working intelligent female professionals.

Could that be why mean IQ test scores are falling in the West? Intelligent women carrying on the role of men, while the dumbest or laziest women are carrying on the race.

No, much better than perpetuating the race, so the German, Canadian, Australian and other Western governments have decided, is to open wide the gates to Muslims, Hindus, and Africans and every other alien of whatever race, religion or culture.

And so those people have come and keep coming, to replace the Western nations as they die ever faster than they breed.

The tribes of Europe, the peoples of almost every country of the Old Continent, are visibly aging, shrinking and dying. The population crisis of Europe is “existential,” says Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.

The Self-Destruction of Western Civilization, No 79: Inviting the Alien In

Anti-Christian hostility is sweeping across Western Europe, where, during 2019, Christian churches and symbols were deliberately attacked day after day.
Gatestone Institute reviewed thousands of newspaper reports, police blotters, parliamentary inquiries, social media posts and specialized blogs from Britain, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain. The research shows (see appendices below) that roughly 3,000 Christian churches, schools, cemeteries and monuments were vandalized, looted or defaced in Europe during 2019 — which is on track to becoming a record year for anti-Christian sacrilege on the continent.
Violence against Christian sites is most widespread in France, where churches, schools, cemeteries and monuments are being vandalized, desecrated and burned at an average rate of three per day, according to government statistics. In Germany, attacks against Christian churches are occurring at an average rate of two per day, according to police blotters.
Attacks on Christian churches and symbols are also commonplace in Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Ireland, Italy and Spain. The attacks overwhelmingly involve Roman Catholic sites and symbols, although in Germany, Protestant churches are also being targeted.
The perpetrators of anti-Christian attacks — which include acts of arson, defecation, desecration, looting, mockery, profanation, Satanism, theft, urination and vandalism — are rarely caught. When they are, police and media often censor information about their identities and ethnic backgrounds. Many suspects are said to have mental disorders; as a result, many anti-Christian attacks are not categorized as hate crimes.
In France and Germany, the spike in anti-Christian attacks dovetails with the recent mass immigration from the Muslim world.

Free Speech in the Age of Political Correctness

Kevin MacDonald is a retired California State University Professor of Psychology and the the editor of the Occidental Observer, a publication concerned with "white identity, white interests, and the culture of the West".

According to that well-known source of objective information, Trikipedia, MacDonald is "best known for writings that propagate a conspiracy theory which characterize Jewish behavior as a group evolutionary strategy."

Other sources readily accessed by Google take a similar line, describing MacDonald as an anti-Semite, white supremacist, conspiracy theorist, or to summarize, a mentally deranged and nasty piece of slime.

However, based on his scholarly treatise, The Culture of Critique, it would seem reasonable to suppose that MacDonald is not some racist nut, but a rational scholar examining the way in which diaspora Jews often interact with the people of their host nation.

Whether MacDonald's analysis is generally sound it is not my purpose here to consider, although having dipped into his major treatise, I can say that it proceeds in accordance with the normal methods of rational academic discourse and confirms much of what is apparent to the casual observer concerning Jewish beliefs, traditions, and modes of behavior.

It is naturally painful, therefore, for a person such as MacDonald to find themselves generally ostracized for their sincerely held and carefully weighed opinions on a subject to which they have devoted lengthy study.

Reflecting the painful social consequences of his academic pursuits, MacDonald recently published an article entitled: Ideas on maintaining relationships with the less committed in a dark age, wherein he states:

... Many of us are forced to deal with personal issues because of our political-cultural beliefs. A typical situation might be a wife or girlfriend—the great majority of activists on the dissident right are male—who is terrified of it becoming known that she is associated with someone who is shunned and socially ostracized. But of course, it may also be other family members or friends—a particularly painful experience. ...

Discussion of the article at the Unz Review raised the issue of American's constitutionally guaranteed right of free speech prompting the remark:

... This is comedy gold.

First, that people believe that we still have freedom of speech. ...

In fact, Americans do still have the constitutional right of free speech. However, freedom of speech is a legal freedom, whereas freedom of action, whether in the form of speech or otherwise, is subject to both legal and social limitations.

Political correctness diminishes or eradicates the value of the legal right of free speech by imposing social control over speech, i.e., informal sanctions imposed by friends and family, or economic sanctions imposed by employers, state bureaucracies, political parties, etc.

The pervasive and uniformly PC impact of media, the propaganda dispensed by state-managed educational institutions, and the Google-style economic punishment of the expression of non-PC beliefs, ensures that the exercise of Freedom of Speech is a rare and often painful experience.

The result is a massive build up of resentment among the socially oppressed until something gives. In the UK, the working class, comprehensively betrayed by Phony Bliar's PC "New Labour" party --which deliberately flooded the working class areas of declining industrial towns with immigrants of an alien race, religion and culture, has defected in large numbers to a supposedly populist Johnson Tory Party.

The consequence of this reaction remains to be seen. But if the Johnson Government fails to deliver for Britain's working class the consequences may be be ugly in the extreme.

Meantime, the liberal left are turning up the invective against the working man. Hence the headline in that most disgusting of all self-hating white liberal newspapers, The Independent:

The antisemitic monster rising from the slime is not Corbynism – it is white nationalism

There you have the resort to hate speech direct in the cause of British national genocide through suppressed reproduction and mass replacement immigration.

The outcome? Civil War, anyone? Most Americans think it likely. Why should it not be likely in Britain too, where another civil war seems overdue.
