Italy has threatened to bar ships of the EU naval force from bringing migrants picked up in the Mediterranean to its ports unless the bloc comes up with ways to share the burden of taking them in, officials in Brussels said.
Slowly, slowly we stumble toward the inevitable realization: most of humanity is incompetent and starving, so if you are not and have competence and wealth, they will all come to you with their hands out. If your legal system says that all they have to do is set a toe on your soil and then they are your responsibility, they will come. If some moronic entity like the EU decides to pick them up at sea and deliver them to your ports, they will come, and you will pay, sacrificing your tomorrow for their today. There is only one solution: stop accepting them, and they will stop coming. This is too clear for the befuddled and confused people of modern Europe however.
The Israeli leader identified what he termed new existential threats facing the Jews, with Iran and the Islamist movement Hamas which runs the Gaza Strip being among them.
“What has changed is our ability to defend ourselves by ourselves… This is a magnificent change of history,” added Netanyahu, who is the first-ever Israeli premier to visit Lithuania, a Baltic EU state.
People reacted badly to my support of Israel, but I am ultimately correct here: for us to have nationalism, there must be a nationalist home for every ethnic group. For Jews, that is Israel, and we defend it so that they have a place to go, ending the diaspora that saw them kicked out of one hundred plus nations and culminating in the Holocaust. Diversity does not work; every nation can house one ethnic group and no more. This means that everyone has to go back, but we are sadistic [censored] if we send people on to their deaths. Support Israel, and give Jews a home. Support reparations-with-repatriation, and relocate all Other groups to their home continents. Only this way can we end diversity.
There are people who hate that our family exists. Actual racists loathe the idea of white parents raising a black child, and ideological arguments about identity raise questions about whether a white family’s love can actually harm a child of a different race. And, sometimes, people even question whether adoptive parents truly love their children, claiming that parents adopt to “virtue-signal” or simply to ostentatiously demonstrate their open-mindedness.
…In 1972 the National Association of Black Social Workers famously declared white adoption of black children to be a form of “cultural genocide.”
…We quickly discovered that if you’re the white parents of an adopted black child, and you’re in the public eye at all, men and women will viciously criticize you for having the audacity to believe that you can raise your kid.
Being a National Review writer, and thus dedicated to the cult of Buckleyism that had this establishment expel noted writer John Derbyshire, Mr. French spends most of the article status signaling against the Alt Right. He wants to be known as one of those safe, domesticated conservatives who get along with Leftists so that we can all continue to make a tidy profit. That is what Buckleyism gets you… a pathological desire to demonstrate that you are acceptable to those who want to destroy you. In the meantime, no one wants a mixed-race family if they can help it, but if — as French admits in the article — it is their only option, they will busily and greedily find some way to justify it!
Citing some research Pillay essentially argued that women were better suited to care for children than to work in the Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) field. He said this explains the under-representation of women in the engineering field. He wrote that: “The fact that more men occupy high profile executive posts is tremendous not because of gender but because of appetite for work load and extreme performance requirements at that level…”
In Spanish, the phrase “puta madre” means roughly the same as the Russian “cyka blyat,” which means other than signaling cultural participation, the choice of one phrase or another — to someone who speaks both languages — is irrelevant. This lügenpresse article says one phrase and wants us to believe that it is not functionally equivalent to the other.
The results of a study on the experiences women face as engineers in the workplace in the US sheds light on the factors that explain the situation…Firstly, poor and unfair working conditions. This included inequitable compensation as well as inflexible work environments that make work-family balance difficult. Secondly, dissatisfaction with effective use of their math and science skills, and lastly the lack of recognition at work and adequate opportunities for advancement.
These findings show that work life balance and the glass ceiling for women are indeed the problems – not a lack of ambition or a biological need to mother children.
We can tell we live in a neo-Communist regime because all of our science is politicized. “Poor and unfair working conditions” means “unsubsidized working conditions,” meaning that someone has not reached out to make sure that equality is enforced on unequal circumstances. If we focus on the “inequitable compensation” part, we can see this is the rebirth of the 77% myth, which generally reflects the fact that women work fewer hours because they have to deal with menstruation and childbirth. Collaborating that, these neo-Communists next mention “inflexible work environments that make work-family balance difficult.” Reading between the lines, they are saying the exact thing that Pillay did.
The neurons were given the “rosehip” name because each cell’s central axon had the bulbous look of a rose after it has shed its petals. They’re inhibitory neurons, which means they can tamp down electrical impulses coming in from other brain cells.
Lein added another analogy, comparing the neurons to the customized volume controls on a stereo sound system’s equalizer.
…There was at least one type of brain cell that had no analog in the mouse brain, and when Tamás visited the Allen Institute to discuss his research, the researchers from Hungary and Seattle realized they were aiming at the same target.
The essence of our intelligence is the ability to suppress impulses; this can also be our downfall, such as when we suppress fight or flight because we are living in a democracy where everything is insane but insanity must especially be tolerated. Mice cannot exercise control over impulses the way we do, and depend on “checks and balances” which sometimes work but often just make them prey. Humans can use discipline on our own perceptions, which then launches us into a new level of struggle, namely to make sure that our theories are accurate enough that our discipline does not exclude vital data.
Hmm. A compilation of Leftist fallacies:
Unfortunately, the business case argument often draws on a “gender essentialist” view. This holds that women are fundamentally, immutably and naturally different from men. The inclusion of women benefits the organisation, it suggests, because women bring uniquely female skills and perspectives that complement those of men.
When we say that diversity is paradoxical, one of the things being referred to is the clash between essentialism and universalism. Only one can be true: either women/minorities are different and offer a valuable perspective, or they are not different, in which case there is no value to diversity.
The Left dances around this by claiming that we are looking for perspectives instead of abilities, as in “her perspective growing up as an obese lesbian mixed-race orphan in the sewers of San Francisco brought her a unique outlook on corporate ethics.” However, this also defeats the notion of univeralism itself; if we must have experienced a thing to understand it, there is no actual shared experience that unites humanity.
Yes, there will be average differences between 100 female board directors and 100 male ones. But these differences don’t add up to create neat categories of men who think like this and women who think like that.
Their argument is “because categories are not absolute, categories do not exist.” This anti-essentialist argument clashes with the folk knowledge that “the exception strengthens the rule,” mainly because an exception is not exceptional unless the rule generally applies. In other words, categorical boundaries are not strict, but spectral, and we measure from the center — what some might call an idealized woman — and then see others as exhibiting degrees of that vision with the knowledge that very few of us score 100% in anything, including being what we are.
In both countries, gender essentialists were less supportive of gender equality than non-essentialists. They were less in favour of egalitarian roles in relationships, parenting, work and education.
They were also more supportive of discriminatory workplace practices, and more likely to perceive contemporary workplaces as non-discriminatory.
In both countries, gender essentialism was associated with anti-egalitarian gender attitudes and beliefs, independently of political orientation and general acceptance of social hierarchy.
If you recognize the differences between people, egalitarianism represents an attempt to be in denial of those differences, which means that it is an anti-realist outlook. If you are a realist, as essentialists tend to be, anti-realists are a threat because they are functionally insane since they deny reality, and doubly threatening because their primary goal at all times is to legitimize insanity as “equal” to sanity.
If you are not an egalitarian, no workplace is “discriminatory” because you realize that people have specific roles to specific places, and each workplace has its own needs and rewards those who meet those needs, whether that is through an egalitarian framework or not.
Sure enough, gender essentialists were especially prone to show backlash. They were more likely than non-essentialists to be outraged by a female political candidate who was described as power-seeking, for example, and by a male candidate who was not.
We do not trust things which try to climb out of their place in the natural order. Like Adam in the Garden of Eden, Ahab in Moby-Dick, early Ulysses in The Odyssey, Dr. Frankenstein in Frankenstein, or the Ring in the Nibelungenlied or even The Lord of the Rings, those who try to climb above their station are manipulative and headed for a downfall.
Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis’s own words on CNN’s air last week.
Can we admit now that all of American business, media, academia, science, religion, and government have been converted into one large industry whose product is control of denial, and whose audience are fervent because to be otherwise is to recognize Western decay? The media cabal in D.C. has essentially revealed its hand here: media simply rebrand important players as anonymous sources in order to manufacture outrage and keep the product flowing.
The main reason? We’re transitioning rapidly to a radically different global economy, due to our increasingly unsustainable exploitation of the planet’s environmental resources. Climate change and species extinctions are accelerating even as societies are experiencing rising inequality, unemployment, slow economic growth, rising debt levels, and impotent governments. Contrary to the way policymakers usually think about these problems, the new report says that these are not really separate crises at all. Rather, these crises are part of the same fundamental transition to a new era characterized by inefficient fossil fuel production and the escalating costs of climate change. Conventional capitalist economic thinking can no longer explain, predict, or solve the workings of the global economy in this new age, the paper says [PDF].
This whole thing is a begging-the-question fallacy: because problems that concern Leftists are not being addressed by non-Leftists, our solution is more Leftism. In reality, what we are seeing here is the failure of Leftist policy across the board to produce the results it promised, so they are scapegoating capitalism and nationalism for the failures of Leftism. They do that because if we admit that Leftism has failed, it joins Communism in the dustbin of history, and Leftists do not want that; unfortunately for them, the rising “populist” wave shows that people have recognized that liberal democracy and Communism are two paths to the same destination.
Holidaymakers watched open-mouthed as the semi-inflatable Zodiac carrying nearly 50 Moroccans including around ten children beached near a purpose-built luxury hotel area on Spain’s Costa de la Luz.
Civilization is good; “being civilized” is socialized pretense. Those who are too “civilized” for their own good refuse to do what is necessary, which is to return these people to whatever country the boat came from. Under our current law, once they get feet dry, they are the problem of the host country; that makes zero sense, but we all voted for it to ensure that we are consistent with the egalitarian policies of the nu-West. That “civilized” pretense has people rushing at our shores so that they can get in under the legal loophole and become our problem, at which point they know that they have a blank check: we will give them endless welfare, we will forgive them their crimes, and we will never send them home. For our own pretense.
Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications.
On the Right, we keep saying that we have a problem with mental illness and bad parenting which is leading to these mass shootings. If they cannot use guns, they will use knives, cars, gasoline, feces, or whatever else is at hand to harm others. These people are primarily suicides, but they all seem to come from broken homes, have mental health problems, and have a history of using psychoactive drugs, legal or illegal. If our society were honest, we would admit that insane people belong in asylums, not walking the streets, but that offends the Leftist Narrative, so they insist that we allow the dangerously deranged to walk among us, with unsurprising lugubrious results.
The protest late Monday, sparked by the killing of a 35-year-old German man in an altercation with migrants over the weekend, erupted into clashes between neo-Nazis and left-wing counter-protesters.
…Chemnitz police said they have arrested a 22-year-old Syrian and a 21-year-old Iraqi on suspicion of manslaughter in the death of the German man after a street festival early Sunday.
It’s just a complete mystery as to why the far Right is rising in Europe.
Speaking Sunday afternoon to more than 1,000 people at a ceremony at his daughter’s former high school, Rob Tibbetts didn’t directly respond to comments by President Donald Trump and others who quickly seized upon the suspect’s citizenship to argue for changes in immigration laws.
…“The Hispanic community are Iowans. They have the same values as Iowans,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, they’re Iowans with better food.”
It’s like they wanted to include every clicé in the book. First we have the cuckservative mantra of “values” not genetics, which is nonsense since the ability to perceive the world is genetic, so whatever values we have are contingent upon our perception and thus our genetics. Next, The Stevens Rule in the wild. Finally, the whole thing becomes farce because Rob Tibbetts clearly has Amerind heritage as did his daughter Mollie, who did not look white and in fact betrayed several Asian facial characteristics. The farce is complete: a non-white, speaking as a white, indulges in conservative and liberal bleats at the same time, while eulogizing his daughter who was — let us get back to reality here — murdered by an illegal alien for no discernible purpose or gain.
Roughly the size of Mexico, straddling Brazil’s mid-section from its far western borders with Paraguay and stretching northeast towards the Atlantic coast, the Cerrado has seen about half of its native forests and grasslands converted to farms, pastures and urban areas over the past 50 years.
Deforestation in the region has slowed from the early 2000s, when Brazil’s soy boom was gaining steam. Still, farmers continue to plow under vast stretches of the biome, propelled largely by Chinese demand for Brazilian meat and grain. The Asian nation is Brazil’s No. 1 buyer of soybeans to fatten its own hogs and chickens.
Leftists want us to think that we can save the environment by limiting our consumption. They are wrong because with our population increasing, all we are doing is shifting the burden around while total demand increases. A world of seven billion people, even living at subsistence level, will be an ecological catastrophe just as if they all drove SUVs and lived in suburban McMansions. The only way to stop this tide is to lower our population numbers, starting with the least useful people.
Yet Trump’s exclusion from such high-profile events of mourning and celebration – where American presidents are typically counted on to stand in for an entire nation – is emerging as a pattern over his 19 months in office.
Trump, the outsider who rode the politics of grievance, resentment and insults to election, and into the Oval Office, is becoming for many a pariah president. To be unwelcome at funerals, cultural celebrations and victory parties is another unprecedented aspect of his presidency; aides to recent White House occupants could not recall similar snubs, even for presidents during times of unpopularity or investigations.
To be an outsider is never to be in the “in-group.” The people who are inside in Washington are like the people who are inside in a gang, cult, or organized crime: they are perfectly adapted to the activities within. Trump pointed out that the activities that Washington favors — all of which are a combination of Leftism and consumerism, sort of a grifter’s paradise — have not been working well and we need to dial back to a Reagan/JFK crossover. This pissed off the absolutely morally corrupt and their “office buddies,” the cuckservatives, who want business as usual. DJT is an outsider, and was elected as an outsider, because our government has failed and needs to be replaced.
