News.

Does anyone see a common thread in these stories?  The Ames story alone would fit in well with The Good Shepherd, but not in the manner in which Der Movement obsesses over that movie – or, shall we say, one particular scene in that movie.

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

And the other shoe drops.

So much winning!

The current state of the “movement” – what an unmitigated disaster.  On the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, there were virtually unlimited opportunities for the “movement.”  There was enormous potential and it was all squandered, everything has been ruined – ruined by the Type I retards who make up the bulk of the rank-and-file and ruined even more by their affirmative action leadership, pathetic losers and professional failures whose only qualification for “movement leadership” is their ethnic background. 

And with all the serious issues as stake, “movement” “activists” are busy concentrating on what they perceive as crucially important matters – such as attempting to distort archaeogenetics findings even before they are published.

Reading online genetics forums, it seems like all my predictions about Der Movement’s reactions to the forthcoming Rome paper are coming true even before it is published.  The fetishists are foaming at the mouth, retconning their dogma with a vengeance.

Interestingly, many of these fetishists are Poles, who apparently believe that they’ll be accepted by NW Euros if they parrot then dogma even more vehemently than NW Euros do.  Fat chance of that.

Thus, the fetishists are pretending that the dogma was never that the Ancient Greeks and Romans (and Egyptians!) were Nordic. Oh no, perish the thought, that’s all down the memory hole.

Now, it’s that the Northern Italian-like real Romans were replaced (genocide!) by greasy Sicilian-like MENA immigrants.  And, of course, they say that assaying Ancient Rome is no different from assaying New York City – unless of course the findings were compatible with the original dogma and then they’d be crowing about the results and how “representative” they were.

The lesson here is that no matter what the findings of archaeogenetics, the fetishists will NEVER admit to being wrong. If a study demonstrated that King Leonidas was akin to a Nigerian, the fetishists would proclaim “Arthur Kemp was right!” – after all, in this scenario, Leonidas would be genetically distinct from modern Greeks, and wasn’t that all Kemp was saying?  Get with the program!  The fundamental dishonesty of these types is laughable.

Good to see that the Type Is have a good division of labor thing going on here.  Some of them keep busy retconning their disproved dogmas in truly Orwellian fashion, while others shoot up Walmarts and plan bombings, or look at child porn, which a certain VDARE contributor thinks should not be illegal.  

All of this is the direct outcome of Der Movement’s strict affirmative action policy.  Keep on enabling it, all you imbeciles out there.  And keep sending in those “D’Nations” to your “leaders” – after all, how else are they going to go on their trips to Europe while you sit in your parents’ basement, onanistically reveling over Durocher’s latest Unz posts?

Reagan, Spencer, and Dutton, Oh My!

In der news.

Watch this.  Now, I’ve criticized Reagan as one of the original Man on White Horse frauds, and his domestic policy was a complete betrayal of his voters.  Essentially, to the extent he was sincere about any of it (Who knows?  Maybe like Trump, the divorced and remarried Hollywood Reagan was as much an insincere fraud as New York values Antifa Don Trump), he sacrificed his domestic agenda to achieve his foreign policy and defense spending goals.  Let’s put that aside for the moment, and just concentrate on the ability to fulfill the obligations of being a President of the United States – acting the role (Reagan was an actor, after all), and representing yourself, your nation, and your ideals (even if insincere) before the world. Compare Reagan’s televised address linked to above with the behavior of Trump.  How would Trump have responded in a similar situation?  Several blustering tweets, written as if by a brain-addled ten year old?  Speeches about how George Washington’s army conquered airports?  Comments about his “big hands?”  What?  

Actually, Reagan was the last President who was in any way truly Presidential.  Bush Sr. was a whining elitist with no charisma, a man who – despite his war record of physical courage – had no moral courage at all.  Clinton was a disgusting pig and a transparent carnival barker. Bush Jr. was almost as big a vulgar retard as Trump.  Obama, given a free pass because of his race, was an empty suit, a cipher who thought that reading off of a teleprompter with his chin elevated would compensate for his total lack of substance.  What a complete disgrace.  Oh, for the days of Milliard Fillmore!

Very cognitive, very elite. Colored is as colored does.  If a Negro did this, the HBDers would be up in arms; but as regards this, it is move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.

Colored is as colored does.  Black, Brown, Yellow, Red – what’s the difference?

Is there a point to this, other than Spencer confirming himself as a Type I jackass?  I don’t know, me, I’d rather mock someone for a failing they have control over – for example, running the Alt Right into the ground despite all of the opportunities presented by the post-2016 world – rather than for a failing they do not have control over – for example, being short.  I could be wrong about this, of course, so perhaps a drunken podcast or two can clear up this issue for me.

Do the HBDers support HR1044?

Cool Fishes and Genetic Manipulations

In der news.

Listen to this. 

First, the deplatforming.  Obviously, despite my disagreements with Counter-Currents and  other “movement” factions, I oppose their deplatforming. I don’t begrudge these types to earn a living from their activism either.  My point is, and remains, that these types should EARN their money, they should EARN their positions of leadership, and they should be held ACCOUNTABLE by their donors and the rank-and-file in general.  It is also obvious from reading my blog that I do not believe they are earning the money they get, nor do I believe that they are being held accountable.  On the other hand, if you have to give money to the tin cuppers, better to give to Counter-Currents than to give to VDARE so that Brimelow and Derbyshire can sit comfortably on lawn chairs in the leafy suburbs.

Greg is correct with his weeds analogy, the natural selection process leading to tougher far-rightists.  Of course, Counter-Currents is not the only groupuscule that has been surviving over the years. One wonders though if the System is also undergoing selection – my Red Queen analogy – and with their greater resources they may be victorious.

Lauren does good work.  Extraordinarily good work.  Laughter at my end.

Milo – who enabled him?  Who ever took him seriously? Wasn’t Milo part of the “big tent” WN 2.0 that some people promoted?  Greg, if the Alt Lite is controlled opposition and all no good, then why were you shilling for a “big tent” including the Alt Lite several years ago? You were for an alliance with the types of people you now denounce; I was against it. Who was right? Do we really need to answer that?

Greg is a “cool fish”- which is why he hysterically censors his blog and bans people when they disagree with him.  Frodi says you have to talk to people you disagree with.  Very well. Frodi, meet Greg Johnson, the cool cool fish.

The discussion about apostates was reasonable and similar to things I wrote in the past. See this about Derek Black. Note that I connect the Black case the “movement’s” affirmative action policy, the latter a topic one is not going to ever see honestly discussed at Counter-Currents.

Frodi is correct that people who are authentic WNs never really go back.  They may drop out of disgust, but they do not become apostates.  

People who live in Appalachia are “losers,” Greg?  Not everyone can live a blue state lifestyle off of “D’Nations.”  Who knows?  Maybe some of the people sending you the money you live on are types you would label as “losers.” Or does giving you money suddenly make them into “winners?’’  

I agree with Greg that those who use the term “White supremacists” to describe White nationalists should be held accountable for it.

New system for genetic manipulation.

Conventional CRISPR-Cas systems maintain genomic integrity by leveraging guide RNAs for the nuclease-dependent degradation of mobile genetic elements, including plasmids and viruses. Here we describe a remarkable inversion of this paradigm, in which bacterial Tn7-like transposons have co-opted nuclease-deficient CRISPR-Cas systems to catalyze RNA-guided integration of mobile genetic elements into the genome. Programmable transposition of Vibrio cholerae Tn6677 in E. coli requires CRISPR- and transposon-associated molecular machineries, including a novel co-complex between Cascade and the transposition protein TniQ. Donor DNA integration occurs in one of two possible orientations at a fixed distance downstream of target DNA sequences, and can accommodate variable length genetic payloads. Deep sequencing experiments reveal highly specific, genome-wide DNA integration across dozens of unique target sites. This work provides the first example of a fully programmable, RNA-guided integrase and lays the foundation for genomic manipulations that obviate the requirements for double-strand breaks and homology-directed repair.

Traditionalists can go off and hide in their snug hobbit holes, but if Whites do not partake of modern technology, others will, and use that ability to solidify their dominion over the Earth.  The Type Is can just go off into the woods, muttering over runes and eating twigs and branches, and leave the rest of us to make our way in the reality of the modern world.

But don’t worry.  Any discoveries made in America will find their way to China before they’re even published.

Donald Trump: The Pile of Shit that Walks Like a Man

Impeach, remove from office, indict, convict, imprison, drop soap in the shower.

Read this.  Emphasis added:

Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, a survivor from the shooting on Saturday at the Chabad synagogue in Poway, California talks to MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt about his phone call with President Trump. 

“He was so gracious and generous with his words. Exceedingly comforting to me, my community. He spoke to me like a friend, like a buddy,” Rabbi Goldstein said.

“And we spoke about anti-Semitism. And I asked him, Mr. President, what are you doing about anti-Semitism in the United States of America? And he was very generous in explaining that he has made it as a priority.

“He said, listen, I have a son-in-law who’s Jewish, a daughter that’s Jewish, I have grandchildren that are Jewish. I love Israel, we’re going to do whatever we can to protect the Jewish people of the United States of America and abroad,” he said.

White people attacked – silence.

His own supporters attacked – silence.

His own DOJ persecutes his own supporters when they try to defend themselves – silence.

The Sackler family and the “big White wave” of opioids- silence.

But – ah! – defending Jews and Israel, that’s a different story.  That’s, literally, family.  The God Emperor…of Israel.  For the Whites who voted him into office – nothing but contempt.  For the Jews who despise him and voted for Clinton – everything.

Note the part about saving Reagan from “prison rape shame.”  Who is going to be Trump’s Ollie North?  Answer: no one.  They’ll all turn on him to save themselves in a New York minute.  Literally, a New York minute.

EGI Notes wholeheartedly endorses the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump for obstruction of justice, and other crimes, as outlined in the Mueller report.  He should then be removed from office by the Senate and, afterward, indicted in Federal Court.  One can hope that after a fair and just trial, he is sent to prison, where he can try to avoid shame when he drops the soap in the shower.  

Maybe he can try to spend as much time as possible in the prison infirmary – for those bone spurs.  You know, the ones that kept him out of Vietnam, when other young men, without wealthy families, were sent there to die or to become permanently disabled.  No worries.  Carter’s pardon of draft dodgers covers all possibilities, I suppose.

We need to seriously consider whether there is a strain of congenital retardation in the Trump family.

I mean, they can’t be mentally normal and yet be this stupid, can they?

Wait, wait, the answer is coming.

Trump is upset about the two Negresses and – wait,wait! – he’s going to look into it.  As soon as he’s finished eating his 50th Big Mac for the day.

Roissy commentator:

Neither you nor anyone else who has ever fucked niggers and publicly bragged about it should ever pronounce opinions about anything whatsoever to do with the White race. (That includes @CH, by the way.)

Left vs. Right.  Righteous anger there, but he’s really naïve of he thinks Der Movement has the capacity for any sane activism whatsoever. And Trump helping?  Ha and double ha!  He’d be on the other side, my friend.  And “Mr. Clean Your Room” is not 75% on our side, more like 75% against.

Community building.  In general, all good, but naïve.  The different groups cited as being ever-so-wonderful are actually pathetic disasters, and community building is going nowhere without proper leadership and operational security.

Yes, yes, Der Movement  “has no money,” right?

Asking price for 289 acres and the Pierce Memorial Hall is nearly $700,000…Of particular significance is a bequest worth anywhere from $160,000 to $1 million left to the NA by Robert McCorkill, a Canadian chemist and NA member who died in 2004. It included a collection of ancient Greek and Roman coins.

This is good.  Taylor should challenge Monae to a debate about separatism.

Duchesne and Other News

In der news.

If Duchesne thinks that only Southern Europeans have Neolithic Anatolian Farmer ancestry, he’s completely wrong. That ancestry is at its highest levels in Southern Europe, but it is found, at various levels, in all parts of Europe.

The way to argue against the meme of “Europeans are just mongrels from migrations” is NOT to argue that all of the ancestors of modern Europeans sprang up from the soil of Europe back into the mists of time. If you go back far enough, hominid origins were in Africa (most likely). 

The proper argument is to point out that EVERY group was formed by migrations and mixes, including all of the colored “indigenous” groups the SJWs so love.  Amerindians originated in Asia; however, we call them indigenous Native Americans because their process of ethnogenesis took place in the Americas, their identity as a group is historically rooted in the Americas, they are the oldest extant group to have come into being in the Americas, and they became a genetically and culturally distinct group (distinct from their own ancestors as well) in the Americas.  The same applies to Europeans in Europe.  I define “indigenous” here.

And the fact that something occurred in the past does not obligate us to accept something similar happening in the present or future. The fact that my embryonic and fetal development took place in my mother’s reproductive tract does not mean that I should go out and attempt to shove my head up a woman’s vagina.

How a group came to be in no way obligates it to pursue or accept a course of events that would lead to its diminishment and demographic replacement. And, anyway, ancient European genetics tend to overlap in PCA plots in a general sense with various modern European populations; none of them overlap with Nigerians or Chinamen.

So much winning!

More and more winning!

Trump the radical leftist.  Trump the architect of White Genocide. Trump the God Emperor of the Great Replacement.  Trump the Traitor.

You see what happens when you have “court Jews” in positions of influence?  How is Unz any different?

Girrrl power!  Agency!  Joan of Arc!  Lauren Southern!  It is all one!

Fits in well with the Catholic Church or with Alt Right meetings.

The same applies to Der Movement.

Copy, copy, copy, steal, steal, steal. The HBDers weep.  Emphasis added:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A former engineer and a Chinese businessman have been charged with economic espionage and conspiring to steal trade secrets from General Electric Co to benefit China, according to an indictment unsealed by the U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday.
The indictment against the former GE engineer, Xiaoqing Zheng, and Chinese businessman Zhaoxi Zhang, comes after Zheng was initially charged in August in connection with the alleged theft. It marks the first time the U.S. government has formally said the scheme was carried out to benefit China and that the Chinese government provided “financial and other support.”
According to the indictment, Zheng stole the proprietary data on GE’s turbine technology by encrypting the files on his computer and secretly embedding them into a digital photograph of sunset before emailing the photograph to his personal email.
Zheng, 56, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday and was allowed to remain free on bond. His attorney Kevin Luibrand declined to comment.
The charges are the latest in a handful of cases brought by the Justice Department since last year as part of a broader crackdown by the Trump administration, which has vowed to fight Chinese theft of corporate secrets, cheating through intellectual property theft, illegal corporate subsidies and the use of rules that hamper U.S. corporations that want to sell their goods in China.
The FBI has said in the past that nearly every one of the agency’s 56 field offices have investigations into economic espionage tied to China.
The 14-count indictment against the pair charges that Zheng, who worked at GE Power & Water in Schenectady, New York, stole multiple electronic files containing details about design models, engineering drawings and other specifications related to the company’s gas and steam turbines.
Prosecutors say he emailed the files to Zhang, who was located in China.
GE said in a statement it has “been in close cooperation with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for some time on this matter.”
The two men allegedly used the stolen information to advance their own business interests in two turbine research and development companies – Liaoning Tianyi Aviation Technology Co Ltd and Nanjing Tianyi Avi Tech Co Ltd.
The indictment adds that the pair received financial and other support from the Chinese government through those two companies, and they coordinated with Chinese government officials.
According to the indictment, Zheng told GE in February 2016 that he was operating an aviation parts supply company in China with his brothers, and asked permission to ensure it did not violate any rules about conflicts of interest. GE approved his proposal, asking that he protect the company’s intellectual property.
About a year later, around November or December 2017, GE discovered a large number of encrypted files saved on Zheng’s computer.
By July 2018, the company learned he had embedded the files in the seemingly innocuous photo of a sunset and emailed them to himself.
In interviews with the FBI in August 2018, prosecutors said he admitted to taking GE files. He also told agents his companies in China had received grant money from the Chinese government.
Zheng and Zhang, 46, were formally indicted on April 18. A jury trial has been set for June 24 in Albany, New York. Zhang was believed to be in China, the Justice Department said.
Zero creativity.  Zero contributions to human progress.  Everything copied and stolen.  But they have those high, high. high IQs!  Yellow Supremacy!  Yang Gang! Asian overlords!  Rice burning!  Hail Derbyshire!  Hail measured groveling!  Hail Asia!  Hail!

4/5/19: In Der News

More “movement.”

But, but, but…Andrew Yang wants to lower the voting age.  Say it ain’t so!

The clownshow of Der Movement continues apace.  How long before Yang calls WNs “terrorists?”

First, see this.

Then, look at this.

The rank-and-file are to blame for these constant humiliations.  Keep on empowering “leaders” based solely on their ethnic ancestry.  It’s working out great for all of you. 

Here is a picture for you – look and enjoy!  Which translates into this.

See this.  “…cover-up of the catastrophes they create.”  Hmm….talking about the System or about Der Movement’s “leaders?” “We lack leadership.”  You got that right.  Everything that Greg says in defense of using mocking and ridicule against the System and about the power imbalance between Der Movement and the System also applies to Sallis vs. Der Movement.  Sallis has truth on his side, while Der Movement has the power (in relative terms).  But Der Movement is built on a foundation of lies, while Sallis speaks the truth and wins any argument. It doesn’t really matter in the end, does it?

While I agree with Johnson that we should oppose right-wing terrorism, I disagree with his optimism.  Things are bad and getting worse, and we need ice-cold realism and honesty to understand and deal with the situation.  And, right-wing terrorism is not the only thing that ends up killing Whites in the long run, right-wing stupidity does as well.  So – how many Whites will die because “movement” “leaders” embrace the Yang Gang?  How much did the whole Alt Right stupidity set us back; how many Whites will end up dying because of that?  How much right-wing terrorism is due to weak-minded folks becoming desperate because they (justifiably) believe that the “movement” is a complete and utter failure.

Yeah Greg – the Alt Right was “a lot of fun.”  I was arguing against it at the time, and I was right. You were, and are, wrong.  Greg wants to “wipe the Alt Right smirk off the face of the movement.” Yeah Greg, back when you were saying that the Alt Right and White nationalism should be one and the same, I was vehemently denouncing “Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism”  And what happened to Anglin and Enoch being the voices of WN 3.0?  

I like the part where Greg suggests the possibility that awakened Whites might limit voting to disenfranchise growing the growing non-White population within their borders.  Yes, imagine aging Whites taking away the right to vote from the growing horde of young and violent non-Whites, an edict enforced I presume by a multicultural police and military. Sure, sure. You know, power is only what can be enforced.  You can decide to do whatever you want, but if you cannot enforce your will, it is meaningless.  More of a chance that it will be Whites who will lose the right to vote.  Then they can crawl into their snug hobbit hole.

Realism and honesty would negatively affect the “D’Nations,” so we can’t have that!  And it’s interesting that Johnson hasn’t encountered – at least so far – the same problems as Taylor and Spencer as regards the EU.

Trump backs down on closing the border. A coward and a buffoon. MAGA!  Pepe! Kek!

Pathetic and mendacious Roissy is becoming more skeptical of Trump – three years too late – but then engages in gaslighting to tell us “I told you so.” NO. YOU. DID. NOT.  Briefly mentioning that “Javanka” may be a problem is NOT the same as predicting that Trump would turn out to be a fraud and a buffoon. ONLY Sallis predicted that, and did so BEFORE the election.  Roissy and all the rest were engaged in the most pitifully lickspittle homoerotic worship of Trump.  

A woman of course. Do I ever get tired of being right?  No. Of course, the Chinese are going to use women for these sorts of operations.  You work with the material you have at hand, and Yellow Fever is not only “at hand,” it is out of hand indeed.

It’s “on the table.”  Trump’s “going to look into it,” no doubt.

Collapse and defeat typically takes place after a failure of never – hence, the axiom that revolutions usually do not take place during the time of maximal repression, but when that repression is suddenly relaxed.

As soon as he was elected, Trump couldn’t wait to tell everyone that he didn’t want Hillary Clinton investigated (later on, he attacked Sessions for following that request – typical Trumpian blustering nonsense) – and after that show of weakness, all of the attacks, particularly the “Russia collusion” fraud, started hot and heavy.  Likewise, White America had multiple failures of nerve – in the 1960s with “civil rights and integration” and with the rise of the Left and with the 1965 immigration act. In the 1980s, White America “blinked” with respect to the Hispanic invasion – the acceptance and promotion of bilingualism in the public space and Reagan’s amnesty.

I wrote the above words before I read a gamester comment thus:

The various arguments here on whether Trump was lying from the beginning, a Trojan horse, or co-opted later, through threats to his family or of jail time, are missing the point and unnecessarily complex, so lets simplify as Trump gave you the answer before he even won.

” At a meeting with the New York Times on Tuesday, Trump said he is not taking an investigation into Clinton off the table, but that he “doesn’t want to hurt the Clintons” and that he is “not looking to go back and go through this.”

Great minds think alike. And, you’ll enjoy this – Roissy now calls Trump an “oaf.”  Roissy’s commentators are calling Trump a coward.  In fact, almost the entire Roissy commentariat at that thread are attacking Trump (with some of the humiliated Trump fanboys being silent – Roissy, having no shame, speaks out). How have the mighty fallen!  

Let’s not forget what Ted Sallis wrote on November 7, 2016:

“Trump is a vulgar ignorant buffoon, a Negro-loving beta race cuck civic nationalist with a Jewified family, an overweight imbecile, a lazy and ill-prepared debater, an embarrassment of a political candidate, a blustering clown, and a crass jackass.”

That’s 2016.  Not 2019.  Once again, EGI Notes was correct about Trump from the very beginning. I had labeled Trump a fraud and a vulgar ignorant buffoon long before November 2016 as well.

At that time in 2016 Der Movement’s Grand Poobahs were telling us that the God Emperor was going to save us all – the last chance for White America!  All hail the new Caesar!  Hail Trump!  Hail victory!  Hail our people!

But remember – ignore Sallis and support the likes of Spencer, Johnson, Taylor, Duke, and Roissy.  MAGA! Pepe! Kek!  Got to keep up that affirmative action policy!  Losing with the Quota Queens is better than winning with the racially inferior, that’s for sure!  So much winning!

Lesson – in Trump’s America, harassing a Jew is not allowed.  Harassing White folks is A-OK.

Does Pepe wear a yarmulke?  Does Kek attend synagogue? Well, we know Trump’s family members do.

Support Glen Allen and Other Issues

In der news.

MacDonald and I are in perfect accord here.

Let’s see.  You can donate to support Allen’s suit, a fight against pure evil:

Beirich, Potok, et al. don’t even pretend to engage in honest debate and the free flow of ideas. Atty. Allen quotes Potok: “We see this [as a] political struggle, right? … I mean, we’re not trying to change anybody’s mind. We’re trying to wreck the groups, and we are very clear in our head, … we are trying to destroy them.” And in this case, the attempt to destroy Allen goes far beyond ethical and legal norms — not surprising given the SPLC’s sordid history of using smear tactics and hypocrisy (Section 31) as well as their dedication to fund-raising far beyond what they actually use to further their causes (Section 27).

Or you can support this.

Your choice.

The current crop of Counter-Currents writers are so bad, so superficial, so mediocre, that they make John Morgan sound like the voice of reason and maturity in comparison. 

Note also how the site is converging onto an Amren-VDARE HBD conservatism position.  Derb snug in his hobbit hole – with Madame “Rosie” throwing him some crumbs if he behaves.  “White advocates” and their “sweet business deals.”  The Brimelows and their tin cup poster children. What a shame.

More on this.

KMacD admits the Trump cheerleading – but where is the accountability?  Spencer is correct that the Republican Party is the major enemy and must be destroyed in order to break the logjam of cul-de-sac stagnation politics.  He is dishonest, or ignorant, when he says we were ALL on the Trump bandwagon, as readers of this blog know full well.  But, his overall instinct here is better than GOP-lover Quinn (see above) at the HBD-Conservative mainstreaming Counter-Currents site. The Sallis Strategy – destroy the cuckservative GOP. I laugh at the delusion of these Alt Righters that they are somehow responsible for Trump’s victory.  It’s exactly the opposite – the Trump campaign energized the idiotic Pepe-Kek brigade.

On the one hand, I agree with some of what Spencer said about optics.  But, on the other hand, his arrogance about his critics is just too much.  Yes, Rich, you are taller and a more successful womanizer than Anglin, better-looking than Weev, and more heroic than Vaughn.  Now, please concentrate on wisdom, maturity, judgment, and persistence, to complete the picture. Also a better understanding of the link between prominence and responsibility/accountability would help as well.

Another thing – according to Greg Johnson, Spencer is a terrible human being, unethical, destructive to the “movement,” etc., and he has no patience for supporters and enablers of Spencer.  So, what does he have to say about Edwards and MacDonald positively engaging Spencer in this podcast?

This is not “Sallis being a troublemaker.”  This is an important question of character and moral ethics.  Consider a group of prominent dissidents.  Person A publicly and repeatedly reviles Person B, attacking B’s morals, character, behavior, and contributions to the cause; Person A also accuses Person B of being involved in personal smears against A.  Thus, A is 100% against B.  Very well.  But then Persons C, D, etc. come in, freely associate with B, give B a platform, and take B seriously as a leader, fully enabling B and what B stands for. Now, what is going to be Person A’s position vis-à-vis Persons C and D, etc.?  Consider further Person A establishing a record of being intolerant of criticism, even from third parties who have no connection whatsoever to Person B.  Is A going to look the other way regarding the B-C-D association?  Is it all “politics” with no ethical considerations involved?  I realize that I may be an overly idealistic, and non-pragmatically apolitical moralpath, but how can anyone take A and his attitude toward B seriously if A ignores all of the above?

I see this as an important issue.  

Sallis right gain: I’ve been saying for years that Trump needs to stop the jackass tweets and do televised addresses.  The good news is that he did it and, surprisingly, didn’t make a total fool of himself.  The bad news is that he, expectedly, did a mediocre job of it.

A very true statement:

China, for example, doesn’t develop weapons; it copies designs stolen from others.

Copy, copy, copy, steal, steal, and steal.  Steal and copy, copy and steal.

But the Chinese can do a lot with that stolen and copied technology, particularly as the West collapses under the weight of “diversity” and moral qualms about using the technology. Further, the West is hobbled by the attitudes of Luddite freaks like Tolkien and all those who fetishize “traditionalism.”

The Zman:

Eric Hoffer made the observation that people involved in causes never reach a point where they say the cause has achieved its goals and therefore can disband and cease its activities. For example, anti-smoking zealots have accomplished all that can be accomplished, yet they persist.

Yes, because as we know, no one smokes any more.  As we know, no one is ever again going to die of smoking-affected disease.  As we know, you can never again have that wonderful experience of walking down the street after someone smoking and be asphyxiated by their noxious fumes.
