Court Jesting

The big news this week was the timely death of Ginsberg. I thought it would fill more time in the mass media than it did, but I guess the urban street violence by the Left still ranks higher than old school Progressive issues. There was some hysterics last weekend and into Monday, but then it died down. Even the talk of revolution was tamped down by the party.. Maybe the fix is in as far as the pick or maybe they think it is bad politics for them going into the election.

That has always been one of the subplots to the riots. The people organizing these riots are outsiders on the far-left. The money comes from bourgeois radicals and flows through organizations outside the grip of the inner party. Just as the Green Party was an outsider attempt to drag the Democrat Party to the left on certain issues, this is an effort to drag the party toward hardcore racial identity. The inner party is white and the future party is non-white, young and violent.

Just as dissidents resist letting the political conversation on our side shift back to those old conservative topics like taxes and defense, the left-wing radicals don’t want the political debate to move to conventional left-wing topics like abortion. That will make for an interesting conflict depending on Trump’s nominee. The party will want to do their usual thing about abortion and lady party, but the racial vengeance crowd will want to keep the party going in the streets of our cities.

There is a generational issue here. Abortion does not resonate with the woke women like it did for their mothers. For starters, the proliferation of prophylactics makes abortion an unnecessary option for bourgeois women. Second, most of these women are more worried about their pronouns than having sex. While there is always some man willing to have a sex with a woman, no matter her appearance, the modern woke woman is pushing the boundaries of that assumption.

Just as Baby Boomers have had a huge impact on things like education and health care policy, they have driven the abortion debate. That generation of women is now past the point of needing to worry about unwanted pregnancies. Just as spending on schools has fallen away as a major political topic, abortion seems to be slipping down the list of Progressive priorities. The Kavanaugh hearings may turn out to have been the last hurrah for the abortion issue.

Another angle to this court pick is who opposes whom. There is a faction that really hates Barrett because she is Catholic. There is a faction that hates her for adopting two Haitian kids. There is a faction that strongly distrusts her on immigration. The only people who like her are old school feminists hoping to revive their cause and the anti-abortion people, who see their chance to seed the court with their guy. It strongly suggests Barrett is a Trojan horse option.

On the other hand, conventional wisdom says Trump will pick Barbara Lagoa, the Cuban woman from Florida. She has enjoyed widespread support from Democrats and she would help Trump in Florida. That may be why the Democrats have toned down the rhetoric this week. They know that they will get a sheep in wolf’s clothing from Trump, so they can afford to be generous. Biden will then be able to claim that his side is the reasonable choice in the election.

At this point, though, a woman makes tactical sense. We haven’t seen the Left’s full panoply of lunacy yet, despite it all.

Pick a woman, preferably young, for them to hate and watch the world explode.

Unfortunately, what passes for “America” is Leftist. This country has bought, hook, line and sinker, the AWR notion that the more wahmens and PoCs, the better, and that, if a person from one of those categories is replaced by a Blue-Eyed Ice Devil, this constitutes regression. What this means is that competent, normal white men will be evermore marginalized.

The MSM is writing their articles about Barret in their glowing tone: “a conservative fighter”, ie. just like John McCain and Mitt Romney.

Anyways, whatever decision Trump makes we can rest assured it’s going to be a bad one. It’s the swamp.

I personally believe the elites are letting the anti abortion people win anyways. Banning abortion would boost their favourite demographics and help get 1 billion Americans by 2100.

Even in my lifetime I’ve watched the Left shift its priorities quite a lot. Around 1990 they were still pushing the social welfare state and complaining that the US was not Sweden. It was the kind of stuff that seemed targeted at the high cooperation, high social virtue whites. As the immigration issue became more pressing I used to challenge the more sensible of these types to imagine exactly how a social welfare state with unlimited third world immigration was supposed to work. Abortion was also something that would reliably send the young female libs into a frenzy and saying… Read more »

Agree with your analysis. It fits in well with the prognostications we hear here, like that our country’s the North American continent’s future will likely be identity politics, competing (mostly) ethnic factions warring over an ever-shrinking pie, until the whole system collapses. Looking out for individual intrerests is great until it conflict’s with the needs of the group. Similarly, favoring your own group’s needs makes sense, until it becomes detrimental to all groups involved. Alas, it’s human nature to favor short-term gains over long-term costs.

Someone made a good comment somewhere and I’d love to give them fair attribution, but I can’t remember. Abortion isn’t the population control lever people assume it is. Every abortion isn’t a baby that wouldn’t have been born. It’s just a lazy late birth control method that the woman would have exercised by other means if abortion wasn’t available. There was no sudden drop in the US birth rate in 1973. On the contrary, there had been a dramatic drop in birth rate from 1958 that finally started to taper off right around 1973. https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/USA/united-states/birth-rate I had a really hard… Read more »

Barrett compromise civnat pick – so seems like this one will happen. could be much worse, and replacing RBG with a religious lady is objectively good, but at this point we can’t afford more Gorsuchs on other issues. adopting Haitian kids is very NR crowd, a bad sign.

Related: health care shouldn’t resonate with young people (or anyone under 50, really), yet it still seems to. Perhaps the need for readily available psychotropic drugs is why?

I suppose that sort of depends upon what we mean by depression and its levels. I suspect psych meds are pointless for people who have a run-of-the-mill case of the blues–who doesn’t get that occasionally? But for people who are actually clinically depressed, they can be very effective.

Another little discussed problem with the widespread use of psychotropic meds and synthetic hormones is that the metabolites all end up in the water treatment plants. These organic molecules are not the target of municipal water treatment processes and are costly to remove on a large scale. Perhaps the continuous unnatural exposure to this contamination is more of a problem than we understand. It may partially explain the seemingly inexplicable insanity and emotional volatility that has become so widespread, particularly in cities.

My unscientific, simple-sailor approach is to avoid synthetics altogether. If God didn’t create it and I can’t pronounce it within three syllables, it’s probably indigestible. Whatever doesn’t feed the body, by definition, is a toxin that the body either excretes or stores. And lots of those synthetics aren’t excreted … plenty of studies demonstrate the adverse impacts, from depression to learning disabilities to the array of autoimmune diseases and cancer. It’s all grist for the conspiracy-minded, but I tend to think it’s just the human propensity to compound error. Some folks make a religion out of their diet and health… Read more »

I don’t know where you live, but around here parents go “diagnosis shopping” because once your child has an IEP he/she is entitled to all sorts of accomodations: (tutoring, extra time to take tests and complete assignments, use of a calculator, etc.) This is apart from SpEd, where depending upon the circumstance your child could have his/her own full-time aide or even be sent to a special private school–all courtesy of the taxpayer.

No one developed risk assessment skills in childhood because they were disallowed the experience of running wild in the woods, getting lost and finding their way back like many of us did. When they do go adventuring, as in taking a canoe trip down the Amazon alone, they are unaware of the danger, and get killed. The meds are a safe alternative.

Agreed. Young people have grown up coddled, never been in a fight, never faced adversity, and are also heavily influenced by social media. When their life inevitably gets challenging, and doesn’t measure up to the glamour shown on social media, they get depressed. 3 things are good for mental health: lifting, a community (can really be anything, church, gun club, etc.) and finally, acceptance that life is a struggle and accept that you won’t be happy all the time.

In the spirit of John Derbyshire, let me recommend “Against Happiness” by Eric Wilson.

Excerpt: https://us.macmillan.com/excerpt?isbn=9780374531669

Cliff’s Notes: The modern quest for constant happiness is both unrealistic and unhealthy. Melancholy, stoicism and discontent are powerful elements of our psyche and wellsprings of strength and creativity. Jung would approve.

While their current commentary is appreciated, I still think Kirk and Walsh are windblown blades of grass that will continue to bend to whatever narratives are popular in any given moment. I think they’re spouting occasional truths only because they risk losing their audiences to the right-moving conveyor belt.

Well said. If I may inject a little Rand here. She would argue that principles are quite important, but that they must be grounded in [objective] reality. Now, to steal from the Fuerle book (“Erectus”), he cites Hume’s difference between an “is” and an “ought.” Hume proved that in nature only an “is” can exist. In other words, a “should” or an “ought” implies a morailty, which is a human invention. Now, to bring this back to your comment: Principles can be reality-based, but there is no requirement they so be! A race-realist’s principles imply knowledge of genetics, races, etc.… Read more »

You know you’re talking to a loser when he says, “It’s the principle of the thing.” Once they say that, there’s no reasoning with them.

Rand was a principled anti-racist because she believed the Blank Slate was grounded in reality. And yet she was also a Zionist.

Be very careful what you try to salvage from Alisa Rosenbaum’s savage garden of self-worship.

One woman’s reality is another man’s solipsism. INTJ’s are notoriously blind to their own biases and don’t process ambiguities well.

Einstein hated nationalism when he was German but was latter flattered when Israel offered him a position in their government. I’ve read many a twisted account of his biographers trying to reconcile this hypocrisy.

It’s EASY to be a good person, because you paint by numbers and just do what has already been laid out for you; there is no internal struggle if you think you are going God’s work. It… Read more »

They throw white people in jail for self defense and put black murderers of white people on probation. It’s not divide and conquer, it’s divide and kill.

By 1920s-30s, a handful of divorce mill states were in place. It was the Boomer’s grandparents who got divorced in significant number. But divorcees at that time were viewed as social pariahs, and their children were often shuffled back and from between family members with the means to accommodate them. This backdrop was significant WWI and Depression era social upheavals – really quite a traumatic experience for all concerned (and the subject of many midcentury novels). It wasn’t uncommon for Boomer parents (the Greatest Gen) to be raised in extended families and without a solid father figure on which to… Read more »

I work for the federal government (Army). Not just a few weeks ago, I received an email from the Anti-Terrorism fool at our location that warned about the impending danger of “bugaloo” cells. One of the primary indicators of bugaloo members is support of 2nd Amendment issues. I was flabbergasted that I am forced to work with the Idiocracy.

My last year in the Army I found two bumper stickers with the then-current advertising slogan “ARMY BE ALL YOU CAN BE.” Using my evil scientist powers and a pair of scissors, I was able to make a subversive bumper sticker that said “A CIVILIAN BE ALL YOU CAN BE” and, the last year of my slavery enlistment this graced my gas guzzling heap in the Pentagon parking lot. If nothing else, it wasn’t quite as brash as the famous cartoon of the turtle copulating with a steel helmet, and wording “F–K the Army”. 🙂

Completely off-topic, long-running newspaper comic strip Mark Trail featuring everyone’s favorite strong-chinned manly clean-cut nature writer is being taken over by a female progressive hipster environmentalist who didn’t even know the strip existed when she was asked to take it over. The strip previously had been passed down over decades from original creator Ed Dodd to apprentice and co-worker Jack Elrod, to Jack’s apprentice James Allen, keeping the strips trademark bold artwork and vaguely 50s wholesomeness. James was “retired” from the strip this summer, seemingly for making some BadThink comments about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (He was one of us.) So naturally… Read more »

“The left sees conservatives as their id and the conservatives see the left as their superego,” says Zman, quoting Paul Gottfried. I don’t agree with this formulation. The ur-issue in America for this progressive view of morality (that is, that morality “evolves”) was the emancipation of the slaves. But it was always more complicated than that. For one thing, chattel slavery was recognized as a moral evil way back in the 18th century. The pro-slavery apologist moral position was a southern reaction pioneered by John C. Calhoun in the 19th century as a rationalization for what they saw as an… Read more »

Thank you. This ties in well with what I wrote about above, referring to Hume who said (as I understand it), that morality, a “should” or an “ought”, cannot be derived from nature, but only by human choices or standards. This doesn’t mean all moralities are equally valid of course, only that a morality is whatever a person or group says it is. Now, and more to your point, since the morality is a creation of the human mind, it may or may not conform to what works in the real world. You even use the word “realist.” Many reformer… Read more »

Read James LaFond’s “Plantation America” and check out the Myth of the 20th Century pods with him on that series. Slaves did most of the work in founding America – but they were White, mainly Brit vassals like Irish, Scots & Welsh, with a number of continental White Euros and lower-class English. The ratio of indentured Whites to free men was more lopsided in pre-Revolutionary America than slaves to free men in the antebellum South. If Black slavery in the antebellum South hadn’t threatened Yankee economic interests, the abolitionist movement would have been the same kind of moral window-dressing that… Read more »

I’m looking at my copies of ‘The Fighting Edge’ and ‘the Logic of Steel’ right now. Maybe I’ll pick one up for a refresher. I’ve always admired James LaFond’s writings although somewhat idiosyncratic. Sometimes I visit his website to get a LaFond ‘hit.’ Like all great writers he’s developed his own vocabulary to describe his world, and it is truly a bizarre one informed by his unique point of view. I don’t doubt for a moment his assertion that Whites were treated worse than Blacks in terms of their enslavement. They were rent-a-slaves basically and we all know how people… Read more »

The former “Never Trump” leader responded that it is his belief that the 2nd Amendment only applies to “guns that are in common use” and that if the guns are not determined by government officials to be in common use, that they can “theoretically be restricted by the state.” Shapiro said that he would even consider voting to ban these types of guns in his community. This is on Scalia’s head. Straight out of the Heller decision. Once again, the Supreme Court invents a restriction on the second amendment that does not appear anywhere in the constitution.

This is why I’m a Scalia-skeptic. Anyone who knew the law as well as he obviously did would recognize that our 2A, descending from the English right to bear arms, was based on the citizens maintaining sufficient parity with government armament to resist tyranny.

Respect for the “legislative intent” of the 2A also clearly demands that you recognize this standard. Look at the language of the debates of the people who formulated, demanded and ratified the 2A, particularly the anti-Federalists.

Getting into the weeds of “common use” was Talmudry on his part.

Not that you asked for it, but my take is if this were a white person no one would care. Because white girls that hang around drug dealers and criminals are putting themselves in harm’s way where stuff like getting caught in a crossfire are things that could and may happen. Breonna should ave known better. You are just making excuses for her. And, seems to me, letting the fact that she’s black color your thinking. No pun intended.

She knew exactly what she was involved in.

She wasn’t getting paid enough as an EMT, so she was just fine with being a local dealer’s trap queen for her side hustle

It’s the same thing at the plant I work in. There are blacks who don’t even make $15 an hour showing up in late model foreign vehicles.

As much as I detest abortion, I have to admit that I don’t see any threat to it, regardless of who replaces RBG.
