  • Op-Ed What's missing when you hike the California backcountry? People of color

    Back in the 1970s, the Boy Scouts got a bunch of leftist weeners in the national organization. The first thing they did was purge the BSA manual of anything useful or manly, and replace it with “inner city scouting/community organizer” crapola. Among collectors, that edition is regarded as the worst edition ever made.

    Then they had a *real* brainstorm. Why not invite a whole bunch of inner city “yoots” to attend a summer camp on a BSA reservation?

    In retrospect, they should have called it “vandalism camp”.

    They really, truly trashed the place. The buildings were ruined, trash everywhere, even the mattresses they used were either burned or thrown into a river. Damages ran into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    I mention this as an example of what will happen if you take such people out of their environment to offer them things they neither appreciate nor respect. Such things must be offered at a young age under adult leadership.

  • Trump Rocks Iowa! Vows to ‘Swiftly Remove’ Criminal Illegals on ‘Day One’

    Even “Operation Wetback” had a bunch of different and essential components. Some are the same as today, but there are many others that have to be part of the plan.

    Likewise, at the time, Mexico was indifferent to US deportations to Mexico. Today they are not only opposed, but encourage illegal immigration to the US, because they send enormous amounts of cash by wire transfer back to Mexico, from their “surplus population”.

    Here are some other major variables.

    Former president of Mexico Vincente Fox created the Plan Puebla Panama, with the blessing of W. Bush, hoping it would lead to an “EU of the Americas”. The American parts of this included continental rail links along the coasts from southern Mexico to Canada, and the Trans-Texas corridor bisecting the United States. (As well as the introduction of a common currency, the “Amero”, to replace the USD, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexican New Peso.)

    Definitely an open borders scheme.

    The biggest part of the PPP in Mexico was to turn the southern part of their country into a gigantic transportation hub for shipping, aircraft, rail, and truck.

    And here’s the zinger: to do this they would first have to depopulate southern Mexico. So the Mexican government ordered all the people who lived there to migrate to America. A HUGE surge of illegal aliens.

    I mention this because getting rid of all these Mexican citizens has to be part and parcel of Mr. Trump’s plan to suspend, or at least renegotiate, all these trade treaties that underpin mass migration.

    This is just one part of the deal.

    But a part of Operation Wetback that was essential to its success still is needed today: a propaganda campaign to both convince Mexicans to not come here; and to convince those already here to go home. Self-repatriation is much cheaper than deportation.

    There are so many other elements, such as non-Mexican deportees, and the aforementioned criminal deportees. And while we’re at it, the vast number of “green cards” work visas we issue.

    Unless the Mexican government gives them a travel visa in the US airport, they cannot even board the plane. This is why the “kick them across the border problem.”

    And right now, criminals we send down come right back, so it is dependent on the wall. If they join a cartel, they aid and abet cartel members bringing drugs and murder back into the US.

    So while I’m not disagreeing at all with the concept, the logistics need to be hammered out. As far as the Mexican government, they *are* willing to take the criminals; but they can only take them so fast. Their criminal justice system is incredibly weak, especially in the north, where there are enclaves run by the cartels.

    So bottom line, it’s a good idea, but it needs a really big plan to make it work.

  • Black Gun Rights Activist Launches ‘Black Guns Matter’

    A huge impact could be made with a relatively small amount of money. Take a poor neighborhood. Figure out which households can legally have a gun, and which of them *want* a gun. Just guessing, say 1 in 4 households.

    Buy a whole bunch of .22LR revolvers, cheap, shoot for $125 each. Then engrave each one with “Property of (organization). Reward if returned.” Then a box of bullets. Total cost about $150 each.

    For just $20,000, you could get about 130 such guns, engraving, and bullets. At 1 for every 4 households, this would randomly cover 540 households.

    This is less than the pay of a single cop for a single year.

    The truth of the matter is that a sniper is unnecessary.

    Practically speaking, just booting the criminals is not easy, precisely because the Mexican government has no place to put them, so if just kicked across the border, they immediately join the cartels. A problem for us.

    The best solution is to build detention facilities under the auspices of ICE, right next to the border, to “hold” the criminals, under customs authority, until Mexico is ready to take them back.

    Customs authority is weird. If you’ve seen the Tom Hanks movie The Terminal, he was essentially stuck in limbo in a customs area. Importantly, there is no habeus corpus in customs areas.

    That these detention facilities are effectively prisons, even though these *former* criminals have no outstanding crimes against them, and are just waiting for deportation.

    This means they are not walking on American streets, and committing more crimes. Nor are they forming or participating in gang activities.

    And even if Mexico suddenly says, “send them all back”, we can delay their return for months or years with paperwork.

    Finally, years ago Arizona had a great trick. It put illegals on chartered 747s, with a direct flight to Mexico City. Which is almost 1,000 miles away from the US border. Darned few of them ever came back to the US.

    Fortunately, I suppose, almost all of the TB cases in the US from immigrants are “plain, vanilla” TB, with no antibiotic resistance.

    If you are ‘exposed’ to TB, it means you have the bacteria in your body, but it has not yet turned active. It is treated with an antibiotic for about six months. If it has turned into an active form, you take different antibiotics for about a year and a half.

    The reason treatment takes so long is that, unlike other bacteria that typically reproduce about every half hour, TB only reproduces once or twice a day.

    TB is one of only two common Mycobacterium that infect humans. It’s cousin is leprosy and behaves much the same way.

    Antibiotic resistant TB is determined by trial and error. That is, a stain must be used in a culture to determine if the TB bacteria are dead or still alive. If the first antibiotic fails to kill them, then the TB is a Drug Resistant or DR-TB. If additional antibiotics also fail, it is a Multiple, or MDR-TB. If *most* antibiotics also fail, it is an Extensive or XDR-TB.

    Only twice have Completely or CDR-TB bacteria been discovered, both times in India. Those bacteria died out with every single person exposed to it.

    In practical terms, mortality for TB, with treatment, is very low. There is a higher mortality for DR-TB, much higher for MDR-TB, and approaching 50% for XDR-TB.

    However, the government will officially freak out with DR-TB or better, and put you under confinement until you get better or die.

    Two things.

    First of all, note that he is being held in an “undisclosed location”. In the “good old days”, a savage murderer like this was almost guaranteed to be lynched, color notwithstanding. Think about that next time you read an article disparaging lynching.

    Second, does this individual have a prior criminal record? I would suspect so. And if that’s the case, this should also be remembered when discussing defensive gun use. For had some previous victim killed him, he could have not done this horrific thing.

    MMGW advocacy has become an old standard of tabloid newspapers. Many years ago, they had the theory that the Chinese government was ordering all citizens to stand on chairs, than at a given moment, to jump off, their combined weight knocking the Earth out of its orbit.

    Why would they do this? To show the rest of the world they mean business. Or something. Communists are insane.

    The mass of the Earth is 5.972 × 10^24 kg

    5,973,600,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

    Today, there about 1.3 billion Chinese people. Now assuming that the Chinese gorged themselves so much that they each weighed 220 lbs (100 kg), they would have a grand total weight of

    130,000,000,000 kg.

    This is 0.000000000000021762421% the mass of the Earth.

    Yep, pretty much the math of MMGW in a nutshell.

    There are far too many submarines in the world. As with the proliferation of battleships prior to WWI, this will inexorably lead to naval conflicts.

    The way around this problem is that there needs to be a “cull” of submarines, as with what happened to battleships after WWI.

    For the more dangerous, aggressive countries, this should mean accidents at sea, with the loss of all hands, who are a vital part of the boat and take a long time to train. In other cases, mechanical problems that ruin engines too expensive and difficult to replace. No need for loss of life.

    The Republicans who support open borders are effectively “Whig” Republicans. They do not see the public as their constituency, but instead multinational corporations that want internationalism.

    As such, they truly need to be purged from the party.

    Their end game is as loathsome as is international socialism. It is international corporatism, where a wealthy elite of corporate owners control a massive, unelected bureaucracy, ruling over everyone else.

    They actually *embrace* many elements of socialism, though they regard socialists as mentally deficient defective units, because socialism means taxing “the peasants” to pay for their own health care, government services, and retirement. So the corporations don’t have to.

    So yeah, but the international socialists on the same boat as the international corporatists, then sink it.

    The funny part is that for beekeepers, their hives prosperity is their prosperity, so being a smart group of people, they have acted wisely, judiciously, and cooperatively with each other, (with minimal government involvement, I should add), and there are now far *more* bees than there were before the “colony collapse disorder” was first recognized.

    How do they do this?

    In past, beekeepers intentionally limited the number of hives instead of propagating new ones. Because larger hives equals more honey (and less work). However, when their hives were at risk, they began cloning their hives.

    Granted more work, but more hives also produce more honey.

    Next, beekeepers will transport their hives to fertilize particular crops. This created a problem because a healthy hives territory could overlap with an unhealthy hive, typically a wild hive.

    Their solution was to both set exclusive territories and timetables from each other, and to keep a watch for wild hives.

    Lastly, they work with farmers to avoid areas that have been recently treated with pesticides. By working around the problem, like using pesticides after the flowering cycle is over, no problem.

    It is not just a situation of “no religion vs. Christians”, because the Christian religions in the UK are weak and corrupt.

    The semi-official religion in England is the Church of England, that is nominally Anglican, but in fact is nothing like the vibrant, growing and strong-in-their-faith Anglicans of Africa, the largest portion of that faith.

    So why should Christians want anything to do with a religion that has lost its faith and spirit, lost its belief, lost its will to live? A sect whose former leader claimed to also be a Druid priest? A sect that embraces perversion in its clergy, at least some of whom even question the divinity of Jesus?

    Certainly there are other Christian denominations in England and Wales, but how many of them are strong and steadfast in their faith, unwilling to soften their beliefs to fit the tepid and uncertain culture in which they practice?

    They wisely refused to let him in with it.

    This happened before lasers became very regulated. However, more recently, somebody noted that many ordinary green light lasers had a ‘limiter’ chip that could be deactivated with a soldering iron, making them strong enough to ignite paper or burn skin.

    The answer to that question is found in another question: “What looks like a bacteria, but isn’t?”

    All life on Earth can be subdivided into just three Domains. One of these is bacteria. Another is called Eukaryota, which are all plants and animals. The third Domain is something most people have never heard of.

    It is called Archaea. They look like bacteria, but have more in common with plants and animals than they do with bacteria.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaea

    And they eat things that bacteria do not eat, in places so hostile that bacteria cannot live there. They can live in boiling or freezing water, very acidic or basic places, yet one variety is so ordinary that it lives in the human gut, and actually improves our digestion, indirectly.

    And the answer to your question, what do they eat?, is many things that nothing else eats. They can eat methane gas, hydrogen gas, sulfur, carbon, and nitrogen.

    The left like to believe that the police are public *controllers*. That with enough guns and equipment, the police can keep the public in check. The left is very, very wrong about this.

    The truth is that the uniformed police are a convenience to the public, and little more. But how can this be?

    A different axiom is that the public itself is the police. It hires the uniformed police to jobs that are too time consuming, specialized, and persistent for the public to want to do them.

    A 24/7 day/night watch. Gatherers of evidence for the courts. Dogged pursuers of those the courts demand. Coordinators of emergency services. And finally traffic and crowd control.

    And because we do not want the police to run roughshod over us, we create strict rules and protocols for them to follow.

    Importantly very importantly, many of these rules DO NOT apply to armed citizens.

    So, can armed citizens stop a riot? You bet they can.

    A great example is from the Rodney King riots. The first night, the rioters invaded a Korean neighborhood. By the next night, every rooftop there had an armed Korean on it, and there were many more at street level. So any rioter who dared enter the area would have been a dead rioter.

    The rioters knew this as well, so steered clear of that neighborhood.

    And this is how it will work out elsewhere. Which made the call for the rioters to go to “the suburbs” to attack white people, so hilarious.

    The typical suburb probably has equivalent small arms and ammunition to an infantry platoon. Not counting any police at all.

  • Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy Linked to Childhood Behavioral Problems, Study Finds

    Seriously, acetaminophen is a deadly poison, and is lethal to many animals, especially mammals and reptiles. That, in small doses it acts as an analgesic in *humans* doesn’t change this basic fact.

    “Acetaminophen overdose sends as many as 78,000 Americans to the emergency room annually and results in 33,000 hospitalizations, and 300 deaths a year, federal data shows. Acetaminophen is also the nation’s leading cause of acute liver failure.”

    Yes, when properly used, it makes a fine analgesic. However I would *never* give it to a pregnant woman or a young child.

    Truthfully, when Trump becomes POTUS, he needs to establish strict ground rules about what student loans can be used for.

    For high value degrees, such as nursing, education, STEM, etc., loans can be up to 80% the cost of the degree. For less valuable degrees, loans should only cover from 40% to 60% of the cost of the degree.

    For CRAP majors, like ethnic and gender study, exercise science, creative writing, radio & television & film production & journalism, etc., etc., etc. NOTHING, ZILCH, NADA. If students want these degrees, they can pay for them themselves.

    Not only should government loans be forbidden them, but states should be encouraged to forbid commercial loans for them as well.

    The Democrats see the purpose of taxation as to punish those they hate. Actually bringing revenues in to government is trivial to them. Republicans always focus on revenues, so are on a different sheet of music.

    However, things may significantly change with this next election: the Greeks are about to create a wealth tax; something that Hillary would be more than happy to do, in that she is already promising punitive taxes on the middle class.

    The simple solution is to make multinational corporations a “nationalist” deal. If they want to do business in our markets, they must support our nation to the degree of that market involvement.

    If they do not hire Americans at all levels, do not produce their product or service in America, do not pay US corporate taxes; or receive tax incentives at any level, or involve themselves in US politics, then our markets should not be open to them.

    Of course, calculating this needs to be an orderly process. But the goal is that if corporations want access to our markets, they must contribute to America and its people, beyond just selling us what they make or do. And if they want to involve themselves in changing our laws or form of government, they must demonstrate patriotism, and the rejection of internationalism, first.

    Conservatives are nationalists, not internationalists.

    Socialists are effectively the same, whether they call themselves just “socialists”, or “democratic socialists” (and variants), or “anarcho-socialists”, or communists (of all varieties), or national socialists. Conservatives reject socialism, even when it is the status quo, and seek the day when it is stripped from our society.

    Conservatives are constitutionalists, almost originalists, because they reject the gross manipulations carried out on our constitution by “progressives” and socialists. Especially the embrace of minor clauses (”interstate commerce” and “general welfare”) to overwhelm the rest of the document.

    Conservatives believe in limited government. As such, they can readily offer grand cuts in reducing the size and power of government. Entire agencies that are unconstitutional and thus should be eliminated unless the constitution is changed to permit them.

    Conservatives believe in limiting military, intelligence, police, and commercial power within our nation. They believe that such power does have some legitimate applications, the vast majority of which should be directed at foreign citizens of other nations, not US citizens.

    Conservatives insist that the corruption of science for political ends has strongly inhibited both scientific advancement and scientific ethics.

    Conservatives are strongly anti-slavery, and intensely dislike *all varieties* of slavery. They truly believe that all men are created equal, and that people are individuals, who deserve to be treated with respect as long as they display civil behavior to others.

    I wonder how long it will be before rioters try to stop a car with legally armed citizens? While granted, the temptation will be to hit the gas, if the vehicle has already stopped, and say, two individuals in the front have .45 ACP and the one in back has a 12 gauge with 00 shot, there is going to be a par-ty.

  • Trumped nationally, Ted Cruz looks to get his Texas groove back

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to fluorescence

    Truthfully, Ted Cruz is too much of an asset to write him off.

    What Mr. Trump should do is instead figure out what Cruz would be good at, and invite him to join the administration in that capacity.

    One role could be as “government slasher”. In corporate America, a very valuable and useful role is as a “hatchet man”, who is hired specifically to close unwanted departments and fire people. He is the “bad guy”, and he goes from corporation to corporation doing just this job.

    Critically important: once a cabinet secretary has been approved by the senate, the president can shift them to another agency at will. So say Cruz was made secretary of Veteran’s Affairs. This would make sense as Mr. Trump has said he wants to reform the VA.

    He would likely be confirmed by the senate, just to get him out of there. But once confirmed, he could mow through the VA with a battle axe, purging thousands of useless and malevolent bureaucrats whose actions have killed veterans. He could then get the agencies’ books in order to provide much better healthcare to veterans.

    Once he had done that, Mr. Trump could shift him to an agency where the senate would have *never* approved him. And the senate could not stop either of them.

    Agency after agency: Department of the Interior, Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Homeland Security, Education, Treasury, Labor, Commerce, etc. Try to limit his time to six months for the smaller ones, and an entire year for the gigantic ones.

    Slash and burn.

    Animosity to Mr. Cruz aside, what’s not to like? Sure, he will get so many enemies that he could never become POTUS, but in that role he will do the US so much good that he will be remembered warmly by conservatives for a century, and bitterly cursed, vilified and hated by Democrats for twice as long.
