October Grab Bag

It was a struggle this week. Sometimes, I have more material than I need and other times the opposite is true. It may be the result of the Kavanaugh circus. We’re in a let down period while the crazies rest up for the election. It could be me. It has been a melancholy week and the weather has changed all of a sudden. It has been a very tropical summer here in Lagos and then all of sudden it changed to mid-autumn. Autumn is by far my favorite season, but we usually get a transition period in September, where we ease into it.

It’s weird. It seems like all of a sudden it is getting dark early and the leaves are falling off the trees. We have skipped that wonderful time when the leaves change and you get the smell of autumn in the air. As I said, I like autumn, it is my favorite season. I like winter too, so I’m cool with the short days and long night. We somehow skipped the normal transition and it feels a little depressing for some reason. Maybe I’m just getting old.

By the time I was putting the show together, I got interested in the Proud Boys saga and I did not have time to do as much on it as I would have liked. Maybe next week. There’s also the story of the Rise Above persecution that deserves attention. This is the group the Feds are harassing over Charlottesville. It really is an egregious case, but one that should put to bed any notions that we live in a lawful republic. We are not all that far away from the government snatching people from their homes in the middle of the night.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below. I’m now on Spotify, so the millennials can tune in when not sobbing over white privilege and toxic masculinity.

This guy has totally ruined music for me and given me PTSD.

Whenever I hear ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ I start laughing like a loon imagining blue haired land whales and morbidly obese she-twinks with face tackle. The other day I was singing ‘the world belongs to me’ at work and all the soy and estrogen in the air condensed as the temperature dropped 20 degrees.

I need a swastika, a panzer tank, a Hitler phone and a three gallon stein of beer! Eichst der reichst unt roggenzehaggen!!!!

Spring seemed to be the same this year. Very short, and all of a sudden it was summer. Very little time for some of the usual springtime things to happen. Not much of a year for wild mushrooms as a result. It also seemed to me that the deer had their fawns relatively late, and I’m thinking that the rut may come a little late, too. Slow onset to pre-rut activity. The oaks produced a large harvest of acorns, and the deer aren’t moving as much as usual for this time of year. Very few scrapes and rubs as compared… Read more »

It would be an earth shattering event if the Harvard case were to lead to the destruction of affirmative action, aka “quotas”. I have waited for this all my life. I’m not hopeful.

Don’t worry everybody is going to agree that we need less Whites and more (((diversity))) and more places are going to get allocated at the expense of Whites – if anything it’s gonna get worse that it is

A/A bans at the state level (Michigan/California) were defied by the university bureaucracy, which tried to make the admissions as “holistic” as possible. This case is headed towards SCOTUS next year, and even if “we” win, they will find more Talmudic hairsplitting ways around the law.

The most insidious aspect of A/A is that we don’t know which specific person benefits, and which specific person pays. Introducing transparency is the most important aspect of this case. If anything, we’d need to not only ban using race in admission, but also forbid “diversity recruiting events”.

This is correct. The Supreme Court decision will make no difference. There is an entire industry dedicated to “diversity” in academics and large corporations. This industry will defy any ruling from the Court.

The best the right can hope for is that the insanity of AA will continue to deliver normies to the right.

We condition financial aid on family income over several years. A compromise palatable to moderates is to means test A/A benefits so they don’t flow to higher income non-whites, while benefiting poor whites and Asians. The Ivies could also be forced to drop legacy preference, which these days benefits Jews more than the WASPs it was designed for in the last century.

regarding “means testing”: Isn’t it interesting that Leftist policies like Affirmative Action, Food Stamps or other Welfare benefits, always end up requiring PERVASIVE SURVEILLENCE? Their policies depend on categorizing people according to “need”; so let’s investigate every aspect of their financial lives. … or it depends on determining who gets special treatment according to their race; so let’s DNA test everyone so they can be found to be eligible or not. Everything the Left proposes will eventually devolve into a police state, with massive tracking and surveillence … because they think that only they can judge what “Fairness” is, based… Read more »

I’ve never heard of anyone being asked to cough up a DNA test for A/A. I’m not even sure if background checks are used to disqualify. Steve Sailer pointed out that it operates on an honor system.

The Obama Admin and most states granted waivers to SNAP/TANF/UI work requirements during the recession. Surveillance and means testing were designed to address conservative complaints about welfare programs. A compromise to prevent total defunding, which risks an uprising.

I’m torn on this case. I’m not find of affirmative action, but I don’t want to see Asians taking over our top schools.

On the magical power of guns: some unlikely people share this delusion and are completely unaware of it. Some time back I was in a gun store run mostly by cops who sold mainly tactical guns, ammo and accessories. I’m a hunter, so I was there with a friend. I rarely go into such places. I was admiring one of the surplus high powered scoped rifles that had formerly been a SWAT weapon and mentioned that it would make a very good deer gun. The off duty cop who was working the counter then got into an argument with me… Read more »

Very disappointed in Asians.

It seems some populations don’t understand “divide and conquer” political operations.

They are getting played.

Once they “win” this fight and get these “race neutral admissions”, mark my words, the white percentage at major schools will go up, not down.

It’s a scam to get rid of rules that force integration. Asians should read a book and look at there“allies”

Your statement, “Very disappointed in Asians.” betrays your hubris and unconscious racism. Not all Asians are the same but identity politics asswipes like you lump them together in the hopes that as a bloc they’ll support your agenda. When they don’t, you feel hurt and lash out.

If they win this fight, and get these “race neutral” admissions thrown out, it could spur the Left into an infantile hissy-fit, much to our benefit. What’s wrong with that?

Antifa only works in coastal leftist cities. Cops who don’t work for leftist Mayors and / or Governors would simply round them up as soon as they made an appearance. Otherwise the local normals would beat and shoot them.

There are DSA chapters on almost every university campus. Antifa is just the “military wing” of DSA. Its not out of the realm of possibility that DSA entryism could either take over the Democrats in the 2020s, or else split off and become a political party in their own right.

“Antifa is just the ‘military wing’ of DSA”. Antifa=“military”? Hahaha. More like junior high bullies. They can bust your tail, especially in groups, but they are merely semi-organized thugs high on their own dopamine hits. Though I wouldn’t put it past Soros to have some serious-sh*t trainers in there.

The rank and file are too stupid and poorly educated to realize they are modeled on Mussolini’s Black Shirts. Most them, however, were WWI combat Vets like Mussolini himself. Brawling them in the streets was no joke.

Most of the parties in Weimar Germany had “military wings”, the Nazis had the SA, the original Antifa was the armed wing of the KPD.

The Antifa of today don’t seem to take inspiration from Sinn Fein’s armed wing the Real IRA, despite the ideological similarity.

Dutch, you are mistaken, the antifa groups are supported by the power structure . that is why they are almost never charged when they are filmed committing felonious assault they are not arrested or charged. even in ridiculous cases like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmSjIOHvdlY . this sort of thing is just the opposite of what happens to the proud boys.
the power structure creates and funds antifa. some may be effeminate , but some of them are paid hardened union goon types

You’re dreadfully wrong about that – the deadliest single antifa-involved protest was, in fact, in Dallas. Five cops were shot dead and nine more police and bystanders were wounded. Right in the middle of Dallas.

A few comments on this most excellent podcast: 1) The “social issues” of the 1980’s covered a number of things not mentioned, including the expulsion of religion, i.e., Christianity, from the public square (e.g., prohibition of religious clubs in in public schools, the Grove City Supreme Court decision, removal of religious monuments from public land), the mainstreaming of bastardy and homosexuality (e.g., the Murphy Brown television show, the removal of homosexuality from the DSM, AIDS “rights”) and the full implementation various feminist and racialist priorities (e.g., Title IX with, among other things, its gutting of men’s sports, racial preferences and… Read more »

zman – i’m not trying to blackpill here. But isn’t affirmative action still possible if done in a roundabout way? Kavanaugh will probably get rid of AA, but all that means is you’ll have states do a “top ten% of graduating class” rule. I really doubt Kavanaugh would write “anything less than test-only is unconstitutional”

miforest

this is already in place in Michigan . college admission uses “rank in class ” in leiu of ACt or SAT in admissions . in other words , being in the top 10% of the Detroit or flint (HUGE) school districts you get preference. this also give special preference to ” underserved ” high schools . This preference also factors into your financial aid award.

do any of you guys think that the proud boys shouldn’t wear uniforms? I mean TRS has pool parties and there’s never been any fights – b/c its done on the down low. The fact proud boys have uniforms and that antifa knows what those uniforms are – simply means that they are inviting themselves to doxxing and attacks

The day I heard Gavin announce this ridiculous organization I cringed. He is just a silly middle aged guy that for some reason relishes the punk lifestyle of his youth. I don’t understand any of it.

Gavin miscalculated that he could be allowed by the Js to exist because he disavowed racism. He is currently being punished for his mistake and will eventually join us. This is a process that all white constitutional conservatives must go through. We must try to be patient with them as reality schools them. Try not to laugh at them.

Whenever I read about groups on the right, who advertise and hold meetings/conferences in hotels or other public places, I wonder why they don’t hold their events on someone’s private property. An estate or farm. There has to be someone with the means to host an event. The lack of bullshit would be worth the effort. Does anyone else see have a thought on this?

I’ve attended two Spencer public gatherings that were expelled mid-meeting. If there are private places to meet, I haven’t been invited.

AmRen and VDare have been refused at a dozen private locations. Heckler’s veto rules.

I’m pretty sure Gavin McInnes is a globalist pet provocateur, kept by the deep state via the likes of Disney (who sponsored Vice, which is a deep state CIA propaganda bullhorn — Gavin co-founded Vice). He is put out there to create the image of white men as rude, stupid, childish, bigoted, big-mouths. Any organic, genuine provocateurs or pro-white-men leaders get in trouble with the law and are sidelined early on. People don’t know their names like we know Gavin’s.

I was busy this week and had not seen the Proud Boys news. As per usual, the video in the link is shit and I can’t tell what happened. The NYT article made it appear that the Proud Boys randomly attacked innocent bystanders who were fashionably dressed in black and had covered their faces with scarves to ward off an autumn chill. Can anyone enlighten me with the real story?

Antifa ambushed some Proud Boys who were leaving the event. More Proud Boys arrived to back up their boys. The boys had Antifa on the ground in seconds. They got a few more shots than necessary on the ambushers, which was filmed. Than the cops and cooler heads broke it up.

Just another day in Weimar America.

Is there a specific strategic reason why Jeff Sessions’s Department of Justice is prosecuting people for defending themselves against leftist violence while refusing to take any action against the violent leftists who incite these confrontations? I recall the attacks on people attending Trump rallies during the 2016 campaign, and the hopes that once Trump took power, there would be some “cleanup” operations against those thugs via the executive branch agencies like the DOJ and the FBI. Instead, the opposite is happening. Why are Trump and Sessions authorizing this? It is very dispiriting to anyone who might feel inclined to stand… Read more »

The NR crowd is giving McInnes the boot. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/10/17/gavin-mcinnes-right-wing-violence-221578 That immediately makes me somewhat sympathetic to him and his organization. In general it’s probably unwise to join any organization that is led by a comedian. Notoriety isn’t a bad thing for McInnes. It raises his profile and he gets him more hits for his radio show and videos. Gives him material for his act too. Notoriety is terrible for the Proud Boys fans. Arrest records, having one’s name out there on the internet for potential employers to find, stupid pictures that are on the Internet forever, etc… As someone else… Read more »

The hedge fond maneger Ray Dalio has recently addressed the US deficit and said that huge cuts will come the coming years or the dollar as a world currency will be dropped. He calls it a national emergency and calls for political cooperation. I think nothing will happen.

I relation to Ray Dalio statmentment I came across some interviews with other investors (5.min) who sees a crisis coming with insolvency outside the banking system but also US debt that in theory go to 10% of GDP in a recession with over 100% of debt to GDP; “That is what you see in a 3.rd world country and could finish the dollar as a world currency”.
