For a nostalgia bonus: the origins of Periscope.
He then condemned Indians as a whole, his voice oozing with contempt, “They are a scavenging people.”
In reply, Mr. Kissinger sweepingly explained: “They are superb flatterers, Mr. President. They are masters at flattery. They are masters at subtle flattery. That’s how they survived 600 years. They suck up — their great skill is to suck up to people in key positions.”
Mr. Kissinger voiced prejudices about Pakistanis, too. On Aug. 10, 1971, while discussing with Mr. Nixon whether the Pakistani junta would execute the imprisoned leader of the Bengali nationalists, Mr. Kissinger told the president, “I tell you, the Pakistanis are fine people, but they are primitive in their mental structure.” He added, “They just don’t have the subtlety of the Indians.”
We are going to get nowhere until we can honestly discuss populations like this again. Not that I agree with Nixon and Kissinger on this topic, but I think we need this kind of honesty.
During a recent online class, Greg Patton, who is an “expert in communication, interpersonal and leadership effectiveness,” according to his faculty bio, explained the usage of a Chinese filler word for “that,” comparing it to the usage of “like,” “um,” and other American filler words.
On Tuesday evening, the USC Marshall School of Business provided Campus Reform with a statement, confirming that Patton is no longer teaching his course.
“Recently, a USC faculty member during class used a Chinese word that sounds similar to a racial slur in English. We acknowledge the historical, cultural and harmful impact of racist language,” the statement read.
We have reached peak political correctness and can no longer function as a nation-state because of it.
“You know, lots of lawyers suggest that I shouldn’t even be saying anything, but I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on,” Reinoehl said. “I had no choice. I mean, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.”
Facts contradict his narrative. Leftists always lie. Obviously, nothing of value was lost when the police — after getting shot at forty or fifty times — plugged up his yapping hole for good.
China may gradually cut its holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds and notes, in light of rising tensions between Beijing and Washington, state-backed newspaper Global Times cited experts as saying.
More likely, Trump has frozen them out so that they no longer have any leverage over us. Conscious decoupling of our economies will benefit the US and devastate the PRC.
Trump, speaking in the Oval Office before a meeting with the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo, said Serbia had also committed to moving its embassy to Jerusalem, and Kosovo and Israel had agreed to normalize ties and establish diplomatic relations.
Like Reagan, Trump approaches peace not by appeasement and deference as the Leftists do, but by offering people a seat at the table of future power and prosperity if they are willing to play nice. This has a secondary effect in that it decreases the influence of crazies because they have nothing to offer except pointless conflict.
Sunderland said the human resources department said he violated a policy that bars yard workers from “campaigning” while on the job. Sunderland said he wore the hat as he walked from his car to his work area inside the gates, and sometimes during a safety meeting at the beginning of his shift.
Sunderland said he was not campaigning but wearing a ball cap. He told the newspaper he has worn Trump hats to work every day for nearly four years and most recently wore one that said “Trump 2020.″
No doubt the same happens to people wearing BLM tshirts. Oh, it doesn’t? Well, that’s union territory for you; abolish unions, since they are always parasitic and raise the cost of American labor to the point that it goes offshore.
The majority of U.S. adults say relations between White and Black Americans are very (24%) or somewhat bad (31%), while less than half call them very (7%) or somewhat (37%) good.
Most Americans were upbeat about White-Black relations from 2001 through 2013, with the percentage calling them good to any degree ranging from 63% to 72%. The sharp decline in positive perceptions to 47% in 2015 followed numerous high-profile incidents in the prior year of unarmed Black citizens being killed by White police officers.
Positive ratings of White-Black relations have deteriorated slightly more in the past 18 months among White Americans (down eight percentage points to 46%) than among Black Americans (down four points to 36%). The figure among White Americans roughly matches the prior low of 45% recorded in 2015, while Black Americans’ perceptions are the lowest yet.
Diversity has died in all of our hearts, and White people are slowly realizing that not just Black people but every non-White ethnic group are here to take from us and conquer us. They do not mean to; this is simply what happens in diverse societies. As the fires continue, White people are seeing that we have been paying off the diversity disaster for decades and have nothing to show for it but impending bankruptcy, while it demands even more handouts and concessions, clearly without regard to our future and our survival. Separation is imminent.
The report said the lawsuit argues that a state law mandating the November vote is unconstitutional. The referendum would seek to abolish the county police agency and hand law enforcement authority over to the sheriff.
Abolishing police departments will lead to immediate open race warfare, but as is usual with accelerationist policies, will quickly change the political landscape. Once a few thousand bodies are rotting in the sun, denial of Civil War 2.0 will become impossible.
Around 20% of registered voters in Germany are considered to have a “populist mindset,” which is a drop from the 2018 figure of 33% of voters who had such a view, according to researchers.
When they want to convince us that something is true, they bring out a “poll” or a “study.” In reality, German voters are moving away from Leftism, but if you word the questions carefully, you can hide that fact and scare off potential converts.
The project has split the European Union, with some members saying it will undermine the traditional gas transit state, Ukraine and increase the bloc’s energy reliance on Russia.
That was the point of Nordstream 2: Europeans could throw a fit and reject American oil and gas, and embrace Russian energy instead. Trump played it cool, being nice to Putin in public while acting aggressively for American interests, including stopping Nordstream 2. Putin figured that he would cuck Western Europe by killing a political opponent with impunity, using Novichok so that no one was fooled about who did it, providing a warning to others considering dissident activism. Instead, he alienated Europe and played right into what Trump wants instead, which is the first world trading among itself and cutting off the third world.
When Oxitec released millions of the mosquitoes in Jacobina, Brazil between 2013 and 2015, genes from the modified pests cropped up in local mosquito populations, indicating that some female offspring survived long enough to mate and pass on their genes, according to a 2019 study published in the journal Scientific Reports. These resulting hybrid mosquitoes did not carry the lethal gene introduced by Oxitec, but instead carried genes from the original Cuban and Mexian mosquito populations first used to create the genetically modified mosquitoes.
We are playing with things that we do not understand, and results will most likely be bad. In particular, it is unwise to provide an organism with genetic code that it could use in another area of its life cycle or pass on to others. It would be somewhat comical if democracy sterilized itself with these mosquitoes. At least natural selection would be happy.
Facebook Inc. will prohibit new political advertisements in the week before the U.S. presidential election in November and seek to flag any candidates’ premature claims of victory, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said.
Any single organization with this much power makes democracy into a farce. Not that it was not already, but now we are seeing how this media machine is vital to Leftists, the Deep State, and its source of funding, China.
In a widely circulated letter, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention asked states to sweep away red tape that could prevent a network of vaccine distribution centres being “fully operational by November 1, 2020”.
This addresses the concerns of the panicked and will cause them to consider this election less important, while not affecting Trump voters, most of whom are popping Vitamin D, exercising regularly, and not worrying about COVID-19 at all. We no longer trust official “science.”
The 800-hectare (2,000 acre), surrealist, solar-powered “Akon City”, backed by the Senegalese government and funded by unnamed investors, was first announced by Akon in 2018.
Nationalism gaining steam. The city sounds pretty cool too. Starting from scratch means avoiding design mistakes of the past and legacy functions.
“The fundamental issue is building a base, building a city on Mars that is self-sustaining.
“We’re going to build a propellant plant, an initial Mars base – Mars Base Alpha – and then get it to the point where it’s self-sustaining.”
This is no longer exploration, but colonization. As The Martian Chronicles pointed out, however, we bring our problems with us, or would unless Musk imposes a high quality control filter.
“To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,” she wrote.
Not White, Jewish. They have some African in them through the North African admixture. We might blame this woman, except that under affirmative action, it is a lot easier to get and keep a job as a minority than a “White” person.
India’s caste system is a fixed system of social hierarchy that historically defined a person’s societal rank and occupation based on the family they were born into. It dates back thousands of years, with its roots in Hindu scriptures, and has since spread to other South Asian religious communities. Similar systems are also found in some other parts of the world, particularly West Africa.
Since traits are heritable, caste systems make sense, which is why democracy opposes them.
Arts and Culture minister Nathi Mthethwa says that the government will look at removing statues linked to apartheid and colonialism, and could transfer them to a ‘theme park’ to be viewed as part of the country’s history.
In a parliamentary presentation on Thursday (3 September), Mthethwa said that a governmental cluster had recommended an audit of offensive names, symbols and structures in the country as well as the development of a framework for the relocation of these statues.
When civilizations die, those who could not have created them are employed by them and then take over, promptly erasing all traces of the original city, losing all of that knowledge and history, leaving behind an illiterate and impoverished population with no memory of its origins.
With anywhere from 200,000 to 800,000 boats, some as far afield as Argentina, China is unmatched in the size and reach of its fishing armada. Fueled primarily by government subsidies, its growth and activities have largely gone unchecked, in part because China itself has historically had few rules governing fishing operations. The dominance and global ubiquity of this fleet raise broader questions about how China has put so many boats on the water, and what it means for the world’s oceans.
The Food Wars have begun. Western media, busy search for more clicks on social justice issues, has mostly ignored this development.
Pakistan has blocked five dating apps used by hundreds of thousands of people in the country: Tinder, Grindr, Tagged, SayHi, and Skout.
The reason? “Immoral/indecent content streaming,” Reuters reports. The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) demanded that the apps remove their dating features and more closely monitor live streaming, which would defeat the purpose of using them.
This shows how the pushback against globohomo has little to do with homosexuality, and a lot to do with maintaining the norm of chaste heterosexual behavior.
Biegun said the grouping of four countries are expected to meet in New Delhi this autumn and cited Australia’s possible participation in India’s Malabar naval exercise as an example of progress towards a formal defence bloc, according to SCMP.
Most importantly, this gives a single voice to an organization which can directly challenge China, instead of one nation standing up and then becoming a target.
More than 10,000 people who arrived in Germany as refugees since 2015 have mastered the language sufficiently to enrol at a German university. More than half of those who came are in work and pay taxes. Among refugee children and teenagers, more than 80% say they have a strong sense of belonging to their German schools and feel liked by their peers.
More crooked polls to try to convince us that failing programs are not failing. All other data says that these programs are not just failing, but creating social chaos, and yet our controlled media lies to us. Tell me again about how we have “freedom” and a “free press,” because it looks like a system just as controlled as the Soviet Union.
According to a police statement issued Wednesday night, Deon Kay pulled a gun right before a D.C. police officer fired at him.
Police have identified the officer as Alexander Alvarez.
According to the chief, Kay had a history with law enforcement and was a confirmed member of a local gang.
DC learns from Minneapolis and releases the footage early. Better to have privacy concerns be the battle than rioting proles destroy your city. Not that such things will happen here, since the officer is Hispanic.
Minutes later, Prude sat up. The officers then can be seen putting a “spit sock”— a barrier intended to protect officers from body fluids — over his head. Some of the officers later told investigators that Prude had been spitting at them and they were concerned about the coronavirus, according to Rochester Police documents released by the family that were obtained through a Freedom of Information Request.
As usual, the perp dooms himself with bad behavior. This was a mental health intervention, which is probably not something that police should be doing. Then again, whoever you send in will need to be ready to defend themselves. If you want to know why police are doing these, send in the unarmed psychologists. We can afford to lose a few… thousand.
The Justice Department’s investigation was prompted by the complaint of Air Force Staff Sgt. Paula Rangel, who alleged her vehicle had been towed and auctioned off while she was deployed to Afghanistan in 2016. Rangel learned that her vehicle had been impounded at a city facility in August, 2016, and she and her military legal assistance attorney called the facility on several occasion to try to arrange for the release of the vehicle, according to the complaint filed Thursday in federal court in San Antonio.
Diversity city found a new way to raise money. They always need more. If they cannot do it legally, they simply take it, and leave the rest of us to clean up the mess.
Research from Greenpeace says that changing the packaging on just a handful of product types – like fizzy drinks, fruit and vegetables, and household detergents – supermarkets could remove 45 billion pieces of plastic in a year, in the UK alone. This is one of the first studies to zero in on ‘hotspot’ product categories, identifying the biggest culprits of plastic waste in our stores.
Since proles throw things on the ground when they are through using them, you cannot give them things which do not decompose rapidly.
Patriot Prayer has hosted dozens of pro-gun, pro-Trump rallies. Attendees have repeatedly clashed with left-wing groups around Portland, Oregon, where one group supporter was killed this week.
Are we still trying to pretend that this is “unbiased” coverage?
At the direction of the president, the Office of Management and Budget is ordering all federal agencies to “cease and desist” any government training programs that include any reference to “critical race theory” or “white privilege,” RealClearPolitics has exclusively learned.
Trump blocks race-based communist propaganda from being forced upon federal employees. This will not only harm Deep State recruiting, but render redundant a number of highly-paid jobs for diversity counselors and instructors.
Facebook, Discord and other mainstream internet services have banned accounts linked to anti-government extremists, but the recent protests in Kenosha and elsewhere illustrate how easy it can be for them to work around these digital roadblocks.
The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it. Remember that?
“The internet,” said Gilmore, “interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.” To lay people this was probably unintelligible, but it spoke eloquently to geeks, to whom it meant that the architecture of the network would make it impossible to censor it. A forbidden message would always find a route through to its destination.
Gilmore’s adage became a key part of the techno-utopian creed in the 1980s and early 1990s. It suggested that neither the state nor the corporate world would be able to censor cyberspace. The unmistakable inference was that the internet posed an existential threat to authoritarian regimes, for whom control of information is an essential requirement for holding on to power.
In the analogue world, censorship was relatively straightforward. It merely required state control of all the main communications media – print, radio and television – plus fear of draconian punishment for anyone daring to circumvent the resulting restrictions on information citizens were allowed to see.
Now consider the position of Postmodern Leftism:
Consider a control situation: ten people in a lifeboat. two armed self-appointed leaders force the other eight to do the rowing while they dispose of the food and water, keeping most of it for themselves an doling out only enough to keep the other eight rowing. The two leaders now need to exercise control to maintain an advantageous position which they could not hold without it. Here the method of control is force – the possession of guns. Decontrol would be accomplished by overpowering the leaders and taking their guns. This effected, it would be advantageous to kill them at once. So once embarked on a policy of control, the leaders must continue the policy as a matter of self-preservation. Who, then, needs to control others but those who protect by such control a position of relative advantage? Why do they need to exercise control? Because they would soon lose this position and advantage and in many cases their lives as well, if they relinquished control.
They created a media machine during their “Long March Through The Institutions” as a propaganda engine:
Gramsci theorized that if Communism achieved “mastery of human consciousness,” then concentration camps and mass murder would be unnecessary. Mastery over the consciousness of the great mass of people could be attained if Communists or their sympathizers gained control of the organs of culture — churches, education, newspapers, magazines, the electronic media, literature, music, the visual arts, and so on. By winning “cultural hegemony,” Communism would control the deepest wellsprings of human thought and imagination. One need not control all information itself if one can gain control over the minds that assimilate that information. Under such conditions, opposition would disappear since men are no longer capable of grasping the arguments of Marxism’s opponents.
Now it fears losing control of that organ since the shoe is on the other foot: since WW2, Leftists have been mostly in control and society has shifted far to the Left. Those policies are not working, and the Leftists have become more abusive than anything which went before, including refusing to consider any alternatives to Leftist dogma. This means that they will destroy society by repeating the same failing policies again and again. Now resistance to that is growing, and the weapons deployed by the Left are being turned against them.
