  • US sees Israel, tight Mideast ally, as spy threat

    Wrong. Jesus was the fulfillment of the Law. The Jews are no more the Chosen of God. Christ’s love brought salvation to all and the Chosen are now all those in communion with him.

  • Foreign Policy: The Mess In Mali (Surprise! Obama's magical Libyan tour results in more Sharia)

    Once is coincidence, but Obama seems to have made a habit of shooting America in the foot. Surprisingly from National Proletariat Radio of all places.
  • John Derbyshire: Racial Heretic

    The problem is that Derbyshire did make the argument in a rational sober tone. No matter how much the message is sugarcoated, the Left and their dog robbers in the Republican party will cry r-r-racist! Self censoring to avoid hurt feelings is just one of the effeminate intellectual shackles that Marxism has foisted on public debate.

    People, with few exception are extremely maladapt at probabilistic thinking. A lack of intelligence doesn’t make anyone a bad person. But chances are they will be extremely poor decision makers, have lower inhibitions, poor impulse control, etc. Derbyshire did not say that Blacks are stupid, corrupt, corrupt, and to be avoided. He said that a significant number were stupider, more corrupt, and more dangerous than the national (non-black) mean and those to be avoided. People have the freedom of association and there are plenty of non-black individuals I would write off ever interacting with. It just so happens to be that there are plenty more blacks on that list (Disparate Impact!). Why take the risk at all when the opportunity costs of avoiding it are so negligible.

  • Indian students ranked 2nd last in global test

    For all the slings and arrows hurled against the U.S. educational system, it is still empirically without a doubt the best in the world (Unfortunately it also happens to be the most expensive and wasteful). The biggest problem facing American education and one that absolutely no one in the educational bureaucracy will address is that the Marxists running the show keep attempting (and failing) to circle the square by closing "gaps" and disparities. Naturally to do so requires more diversity commissars, and more propaganda drummed into peoples heads, and most of all more money. In truth, even the under performing immigrant students are doing wildly better than in their home countries. Yet the powers that be keep clucking their heads at declining test scores without accounting for the demographic shift of America's future generations.
  • Game Fish Bill: ‘Beginning of the End for Commercial Fishing’ (North Carolina)

    Duke of Qin to bksanders

    What’s really interesting to me is that commercial aquaculture has not taken off in a big way in the US which is somewhat surprising. The US helped pioneer industrial agriculture and food production and productivity has exploded, lowering food prices and increasing both the quantity, quality, and availability of nutritious food to everyone. Yet fishing remains the same today as it has for the last several thousand years of human history. Certainly people have better boats now and GPS guidance systems and sonar to help find fish, but the fundamentals are the same, men in a boat with a net.

    Modern poultry, pork, and beef production differ vastly from pre-industrial practices and it’s well past time for fish production to catch up. Wild fish stocks are rapidly depleting and eventually everyone will be eating farm raised fish anyway so now is as good of a time as any to make the switch.

    I’m sorry, but the original title was too long and would not post, so I had to reword it slightly.

    I like this part the best.

    Deputy Medical Examiner Dr Robert Pfalzgraf later noted in his autopsy report that, two days after his death, brown-orange liquid pepper spray was still all over Christie's body.

    Pfalzgraf ruled the death a homicide, as Christie's heart gave out due to stress from his exposure to pepper spray. An internal investigation concluded there no wrongdoing on the part of any Lee County deputy.

    None of the deputies involved were disciplined in any way and Florida State Attorney Stephen Russell declined to press criminal charges.

    Buchanan loves America most. He would make a far better president than any other currently running Republican candidate.

    Anyone who remembers Haight-Ashbury would have seen this coming a mile away. A group of utterly delusional naifs gather, and the wolves move in sensing prey.

  • In France, far right capitalizes on euro crisis

    Duke of Qin to Cicero

    Ah the no true Scotsman fallacy. France is France and America is America. Le Pen is willing to stand up for the dignity of France and the French people. She argues against the tidal wave of ethnically disparate third world aliens invading her home. Stands up against the crushing bureaucracy of Brussels. If only America had politicians who would do the same. Instead there is only the tweedle dee of a mulatto socialist beholden to god knows whom and a tweedle dum of Perrius Bushus Maximus II.

    If the single defining qualification of an American president is simple unceasing obeisance and groveling towards Israel then Americans do not deserve or even need the vote. I’m sure Bibi would be perfectly willing to appoint a viceroy, not that it’s even necessary.

  • Census count finds decreasing white population in 15 states

    Overall non-hispanic white population increased by 1.2% in 10 years. Overall population growth was 9.7%. Relative declines in non-hispanic whites as a percentage of the total population are national and in every state. 15 states also witnessed absolute declines in numbers of non-hispanic whites.

    Thus the West dies. Not with fire and blood but the crushing force of accumulated petty tyrannies.
