New York Times Propaganda Officer Francis X. Clines Has Won the Duranty-Blair Award for Journalistic Infamy!
Francis X. Clines was a propaganda officer for at least 52 years at the New York Times. I am bestowing on Clines the Duranty-Blair Award for Journalistic Infamy, for his work in transforming the 2001, Cincinnati riot from an orgy of violent black racism against whites into a non-violent exercise in righteous black indignation.
Toogood Reports/A Different Drummer
Unless you depend on the New York Times for news, you are aware that last week, Cincinnati was besieged by a black-on-white race riot.
The Times dispatched propaganda officer Francis X. Clines to Cincinnati, where he reported on “demonstrators,” “vandalism,” and “alarmed whites.” Day after day, Clines quoted black Cincinnatians complaining about “racial profiling” and murderous white police, while managing to remain blissfully unaware of the riot swirling about him.
Roving mobs of black gang-bangers and non-aligned black thugs have been throwing bricks and concrete through the windshields of white motorists’ cars, dragging the drivers out their cars, and beating them within an inch of their lives with bricks and baseball bats. The same mobs, wearing bandannas around their faces, set businesses on fire. These were not “protesters.” This was not “vandalism.” The white motorists were not “alarmed.”
There is a special circle in Hell reserved for “reporters” like Francis X. Clines. The dumbest thing about his deceptions is their hopeless character. With all of today’s alternative news sources, did Clines and his editors delude themselves that they could get away with it? It’s no wonder, that Tom Brokaw dreams of the Feds censoring the Internet.
On the fifth day of the rioting, April 13, Francis X. Clines was still quoting black Cincinnatians’ justifications for the violence that supposedly wasn’t occurring: “‘This wouldn’t have happened if they had listened to us in those years back then,’ said Mr. [Charles] Wimms, a 39-year-old construction worker, recalling that police treatment of black Cincinnatians—the issue that drove the wave of protest and vandalism by clusters of angry blacks this week—was also a principal issue in the 1968 violence….

Previous Duranty-Blair winners are:
• CBS News producer Mary Mapes in 2004;
• seven reporters and editors at the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 2006;
• ABC News reporter Brian Ross in 2012;
• Peter Berger, of The American Interest, in 2013;
• Associated Press operative Tom Hays, in 2014;
• New York Times Farhad Manjoo in September, 2016; and
• CNN’s Symone Sanders (2), Don Lemon, and Kate Bolduan (2), in November 2016.
The Duranty-Blair Award recognizes those journalists whose work embodies the spirit of Walter Duranty and Jayson Blair, two of the most notorious journalists in the history of the Fourth Estate. It is no accident that both men worked for the New York Times.
Walter Duranty wrote a series of early 1930s dispatches from the Soviet Union, where he was Times Moscow bureau chief, in which he lied about the Ukrainian Holocaust, in which Stalin deliberately starved millions of Kulaks (farmers) to death, through a man-made famine. Instead of reporting the truth, Duranty reported that the peasants were happy and well-fed, and was rewarded for his lies with a Pulitzer Prize.
Jayson Blair (here, here, and here) was an early 2000s black affirmative action hire, who alternately plagiarized reporters at other newspapers, and fabricated articles out of whole cloth, all for stories set hundreds and even thousands of miles away, while he sat in New York City cafés.
In 2004, CBS News producer Mary Mapes sought to win the presidential election for socialist Democrat challenger, Sen. John Kerry, by perpetrating a hoax, various dubbed “Memogate” and “Rathergate,” using forged Texas Air Force National Guard documents, provided by Bush-hating former reserve officer Bill Burkett, charging future president George W. Bush with going AWOL during the Vietnam War.
In 2006, New Orleans Times-Picayune reporters Brian Thevenot, Gordon Russell, Jeff Duncan and Gwen Filosa; managing editors, news, Peter Kovacs and Dan Shea; and editor Jim Amoss, won for their September 26, 2005 attempt to “untell” the story of the savage, black violence that befell New Orleans just before and after Hurricane Katrina made landfall on August 29 of that year (1,900-word version; two-part, 3,900-word version (here and here); and 9,900-word version).
In 2012, “ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent” Brian Ross, won for his 2002 campaign, on behalf of the Justice Department/FBI, to railroad innocent weapons scientist Dr. Steven J. Hatfill for the fall, 2002 anthrax murders; and for falsely asserting, in 2012, that Aurora, CO movie theater mass murderer, James Holmes, was a member of the TEA Party.
In 2013, Peter Berger, of The American Interest, was recognized for his support of, and cover-up of the ongoing genocide against South African whites.
In 2014, AP reporter Tom Hays won for his 2004 “Boosgate” hoax. In his contribution to the John Kerry for President campaign, Hays had fabricated an incident out of whole cloth, in which Republican voters at a Bush re-election rally booed news from President Bush II, of President Clinton’s illness.
In September 2016, New York Times operative Farhad Manjoo became a Duranty-Blair laureate, in recognition of his perfidy, as an unofficial Hillary Clinton operative, in calling on Google to censor stories which covered Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health problems, and which raised questions about her physical fitness for the highest office in the land.
Finally, in November 2016, CNN’s Symone Sanders (2), Don Lemon, and Kate Bolduan (2) became Duranty-Blair laureates for promoting post-election hate crime hoaxes.
“Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies.”
In this story, race is not mentioned, of course, but it is blacks who are obsessed with big butts—as in this black song:

I thank the old buddy who sent me this essay.
I have only minor disagreements with Daniel Greenfield. I believe that the civil war has been on for some time. I further believe that it is 63 years of Republican cowardice that has allowed the DPUSA to amass such treasonous power. And finally, I do not believe that the Left has any principles. The Left worships evil.
The Civil War is Here
The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule.
By Daniel Greenfield
March 27, 2017

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.
A civil war has begun.
This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.
The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.
It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.
It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.
It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.
There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.
After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions.
This isn’t just hypocrisy. That’s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.
Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.
That’s why compromise has become impossible.
Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences. But those differences were supposed to be based around finding shared interests. The most profound of these shared interests was that of a common country based around certain civilizational values. The left has replaced these Founding ideas with radically different notions and principles. It has rejected the primary importance of the country. As a result it shares little in the way of interests or values.
Instead it has retreated to cultural urban and suburban enclaves where it has centralized tremendous amounts of power while disregarding the interests and values of most of the country. If it considers them at all, it is convinced that they will shortly disappear to be replaced by compliant immigrants and college indoctrinated leftists who will form a permanent demographic majority for its agenda.
But it couldn’t wait that long because it is animated by the conviction that enforcing its ideas is urgent and inevitable. And so it turned what had been a hidden transition into an open break.
In the hidden transition, its authority figures had hijacked the law and every political office they held to pursue their ideological agenda. The left had used its vast cultural power to manufacture a consensus that was slowly transitioning the country from American values to its values and agendas. The right had proven largely impotent in the face of a program which corrupted and subverted from within.
The left was enormously successful in this regard. It was so successful that it lost all sense of proportion and decided to be open about its views and to launch a political power struggle after losing an election.
The Democrats were no longer being slowly injected with leftist ideology. Instead the left openly took over and demanded allegiance to open borders, identity politics and environmental fanaticism. The exodus of voters wiped out the Democrats across much of what the left deemed flyover country.
The left responded to democratic defeats by retreating deeper into undemocratic institutions, whether it was the bureaucracy or the corporate media, while doubling down on its political radicalism. It is now openly defying the outcome of a national election using a coalition of bureaucrats, corporations, unelected officials, celebrities and reporters that are based out of its cultural and political enclaves.
It has responded to a lost election by constructing sanctuary cities and states thereby turning a cultural and ideological secession into a legal secession. But while secessionists want to be left alone authoritarians want everyone to follow their laws. The left is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates with severe punishments for those who disobey.
The left describes its actions as principled. But more accurately they are ideological. Officials at various levels of government have rejected the authority of the President of the United States, of Congress and of the Constitution because those are at odds with their radical ideology. Judges have cloaked this rejection in law. Mayors and governors are not even pretending that their actions are lawful.
The choices of this civil war are painfully clear.
We can have a system of government based around the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.
But we cannot have both.
Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can’t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.
That is what we have now.
The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.
The question is what comes next.
The last time around growing tensions began to explode in violent confrontations between extremists on both sides. These extremists were lauded by moderates who mainstreamed their views. The first Republican president was elected and rejected. The political tensions led to conflict and then civil war.
The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.
What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.
There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.
Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.
The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.
This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.
I already had an exchange on this story with a reader.

Feel and believe however you want, but the kid did not dart out into the street. Unless you were there and saw otherwise...
“I initially stopped the car, you know, a lot of kids play on that street — that’s residential, 15-25 [mph],” Killings said. “I initially stopped him. He slowed down a bit and then he kind of like swerved around me, hitting my other son. My son wasn’t hit in the middle of the street. He was hit on the curb.”
It does not justify the shooting, nor does it discredit those who feel that this was thuggery by the perpetrators. But let's at least not blame it on the boy or his parents.

"He was hit on the curb.”
Who was holding the four-year-old's hand “on the curb”?
Do you not realize how ridiculous that sounds? If you believe that, I've got a great deal for you on a slightly used bridge.
“Feel and believe however you want, but the kid did not dart out into the street. Unless you were there and saw otherwise...”
Oh, so if witnesses make ridiculous claims about an incident, unless the investigators had been there and seen otherwise, they have to take everything they’re told at face value?
Likewise, unless jurors had been at a crime scene, they have to take witnesses’ fairy tales at face value?
Your “Were you there?” line is one of the two or three dumbest lines one reads on the Internet.
As for Jamal Killings saying, “I have no malice in my heart,” isn’t that for the victim’s family to say?

Father of 4-year-old struck by car apologizes to the family of the driver who was shot, killed
"I have no malice in my heart"

CINCINNATI -- The 4-year-old boy struck by a car Friday in Walnut Hills was released from the hospital Saturday with bleeding in his brain, his father Jamal Killings said.
The boy was hit on Kenton Street between Burbank and Wilkinson streets at about noon Friday, according to police. Police said he crossed the roadway in front of the car and was struck.
An altercation developed between the onlookers and the driver, 44-year-old Jamie Urton, who was then out of the vehicle, and someone shot him. Urton died later at the hospital.
[No “altercation developed between” anyone. That’s just racial-socialist Newspeak for, “Racist black men hanging out murdered the white driver in cold blood.”]
Killings said he didn’t realize what had happened to Urton following the incident.
"My job as a father was to get my son face first off the concrete and take him to see medical attention, and that's what I did,” Killings said.
Killings said his son wasn’t in the middle of the street when he was hit.
"The car came from the bottom of my street, going about 45 miles per hour,” Killings said. “I initially stopped the car, you know a lot of kids play on that street -- that's residential, 15-25. I initially stopped him. He slowed down a bit and then swerve around me, hitting my other son. My son wasn't hit in the middle of the street. He was hit on the curb."
Killings said the incident was tragic for everyone involved, and he expressed condolences to Urton’s family.
"I apologize for your loss. I don't condone violence. I don't teach my kids violence,” Killings said. “That should never have happened … an unfortunate situation, unfortunate event, but I hope we all can learn from this."
Anyone with information on the incident should call Crimestoppers.

My VDARE colleague Steve Sailer blogged on the following Atlantic rant from 2012.
Author John Tierney—not to be confused with the eponymous libertarian—maintains:
• “AP courses are not, in fact, remotely equivalent to the college-level courses they are said to approximate.”
• “The traditional monetary argument for AP courses -- that they can enable an ambitious and hardworking student to avoid a semester or even a year of college tuition through the early accumulation of credits -- often no longer holds.”
• “Despite the rapidly growing enrollments in AP courses, large percentages of minority students are essentially left out of the AP game.”
• “The AP program imposes ‘substantial opportunity costs’ on non-AP students in the form of what a school gives up in order to offer AP courses, which often enjoy smaller class sizes and some of the better teachers.”
• “To me, the most serious count against Advanced Placement courses is that the AP curriculum leads to rigid stultification -- a kind of mindless genuflection to a prescribed plan of study that squelches creativity and free inquiry. The courses cover too much material and do so too quickly and superficially. In short, AP courses are a forced march through a preordained subject, leaving no time for a high-school teacher to take her or his students down some path of mutual interest. The AP classroom is where intellectual curiosity goes to die.”
Let’s cut to the chase. Tierney hates AP classes because they make money for the College Board, which he hates. The College Board does a much better job than the public schools, which make hundreds of billions of dollars per year, but competence means nothing to this mook. And the College Board makes its money through standardized testing. Heck, that’s the whole reason for its existence. Now, we’re onto what’s up. Tierney is a test-basher. He hates standardized testing, not because it is a failure, but because it does its job. Along the way, it shows that certain races do better than others.
Thus, Tierney is the scam artist. Some of his criticisms are encoded, in order to fool the reader, while others are written in generic terms, about matters which are not generic.
Equivalent to college-level classes? It is impossible to generalize about this, and yet Tierney does.
I took five undergraduate history classes, split between Sullivan County Community College, including a Senior Seminar on American Women’s History. My chief of research has been taking AP classes throughout high school, and they are vastly more demanding than the college classes I took in history.
I spent six years teaching college in New Jersey and New York, and the idea that college classes are superior to high school AP classes is laughable.
Granted, I never taught at any OPUs (overpriced, private universities), so I can’t say what things are like in that world. But since Tierney never said anything about such schools, I’m free of needing to know about OPUs. Since Tierney made a universal judgment, he’s flat-out wrong.
My CoR has also been taking extremely demanding classes in math and the natural sciences. I took a two-semester sequence in “baby biology” at SCCC, including a lab each semester, dissecting a frog and a guinea pig (if memory serves), respectively. My kid is routinely talking about stuff that is so over my head, it’s embarrassing.
$: This is the one partially valid point Tierney makes. I say partially, because college students may be able to get college credit for their AP classes at public colleges. However, OPUs have stopped giving such credit, and my understanding is that, possibly excepting UC Berkeley, OPUs are not admitting kids with Taxpayer U. bachelors degrees to their grad programs.
But that doesn’t mean that taking AP classes are a waste. One lefty mom whose child recently graduated from an OPU says of AP classes, “They don’t get you credit, they get you in.”
Minority students: The supposed lack of minority students is not a bug, but a feature! If black and Hispanic students were accepted to AP classes at the same rate as whites and East Asians, it would mean that they had been destroyed. Have you ever seen a serious academic class with black, white, and Asian students? It’s a nightmare. When my son was in the sixth grade, I sat in one day, as his math teacher asked the kids to divide five by seven. Even with dry erase boards, none of the five black kids could solve the problem, not as a fraction, nor as a percentage.
Later, things got worse, as the Education Department forced “special ed” kids (read: black psychopaths) on his “selective” school. Only through getting into AP classes, did my son escape either having his education destroyed, or us going broke, having to pay for private school.
John Tierney clearly does not care about the education of white or East Asian kids.
“Opportunity costs” for non-AP students: The AP students are gifted; the others aren’t. Under JFK, America opened its pocketbook and its heart to gifted students. The result, among other things, was putting men on the moon. For generations since then, the government has devoted virtually no resources to gifted students. Conversely, for the past 50 years, educrats have had a blank check policy, regarding illiterate, black and Hispanic thugs who know nothing, and want to learn nothing, while robbing gifted students, who are overwhelmingly white and Asian. And today, we have a NASA that exists as an affirmative action dole, and PR operation for Islam.
If John Tierney treated his own children the way he is calling for all children to be treated, he would be guilty of being an unfit parent.
“To me, the most serious count against Advanced Placement courses is that the AP curriculum leads to rigid stultification… that squelches creativity and free inquiry.”
For many years, test-bashers have used certain code phrases, above all “teaching to the test,” in their jeremiads. (As opposed to teaching away from the test?) Tierney is trying not to give away the game. However, the claim that high-level classes are too rigid, is also part of the sophistry.
“The AP classroom is where intellectual curiosity goes to die.”
Test-bashers would have you believe that they are more supportive of creativity and questioning. Hah! When they have discussions, it’s to rigidly impose racial socialist orthodoxy.
AP Classes Are a Scam
The College Board earns over half of all its revenues from the courses—and, in an uncertain environment, students keep being suckered.
By John Tierney
October 13, 2012
Fraudulent schemes come in all shapes and sizes. To work, they typically wear a patina of respectability. That's the case with Advanced Placement courses, one of the great frauds currently perpetrated on American high-school students.
That's a pretty strong claim, right? You bet. But why not be straightforward when discussing a scam the scale and audacity of which would raise Bernie Madoff's eyebrows?
The miscellany of AP courses offered in U.S. high schools under the imprimatur of the College Board probably started with good intentions.
The idea, going back to the 1950s, was to offer college-level courses and exams to high-school students. The courses allegedly provide students the kind of rigorous academic experience they will encounter in college as well as an opportunity to earn college credit for the work.
Sounds pretty good. And every year, millions of high-school students enroll in the courses that are offered in 39 different subjects. They do so at an annual growth rate almost ten times the yearly percentage increase in the number of high school graduates. If there weren't something good about AP, would participation in the AP offerings be so high?
Interestingly, the evidence providing the clearest positive argument for AP participation is that high performance in AP courses correlates with better college grades and higher graduation rates, especially in science courses. But that's faint praise. It's the same as saying that students who do best in high school will do better in college and are more likely to graduate.
My beef with AP courses isn't novel. The program has a bountiful supply of critics, many of them in the popular press (see here and here), and many increasingly coming from academia as well (see here). The criticisms comport, in every particular, with my own experience of having taught an AP American Government and Politics course for ten years.
• AP courses are not, in fact, remotely equivalent to the college-level courses they are said to approximate. Before teaching in a high school, I taught for almost 25 years at the college level, and almost every one of those years my responsibilities included some equivalent of an introductory American government course. The high-school AP course didn't begin to hold a candle to any of my college courses. My colleagues said the same was true in their subjects.
• The traditional monetary argument for AP courses -- that they can enable an ambitious and hardworking student to avoid a semester or even a year of college tuition through the early accumulation of credits -- often no longer holds. Increasingly, students don't receive college credit for high scores on AP courses; they simply are allowed to opt out of the introductory sequence in a major. And more and more students say that's a bad idea, and that they're better off taking their department's courses.
• The scourge of AP courses has spread into more and more high schools across the country, and the number of students taking these courses is growing by leaps and bounds. Studies show that increasing numbers of the students who take them are marginal at best, resulting in growing failure rates on the exams. The school where I taught essentially had an open-admissions policy for almost all its AP courses. I would say that two thirds of the students taking my class each year did not belong there. And they dragged down the course for the students who did.
• Despite the rapidly growing enrollments in AP courses, large percentages of minority students are essentially left out of the AP game. And so, in this as in so many other ways, they are at a competitive disadvantage when it comes to college admissions.
• The AP program imposes "substantial opportunity costs" on non-AP students in the form of what a school gives up in order to offer AP courses, which often enjoy smaller class sizes and some of the better teachers. Schools have to increase the sizes of their non-AP classes, shift strong teachers away from non-AP classes, and do away with non-AP course offerings, such as "honors" courses. These opportunity costs are real in every school, but they're of special concern in low-income school districts.
• To me, the most serious count against Advanced Placement courses is that the AP curriculum leads to rigid stultification -- a kind of mindless genuflection to a prescribed plan of study that squelches creativity and free inquiry. The courses cover too much material and do so too quickly and superficially. In short, AP courses are a forced march through a preordained subject, leaving no time for a high-school teacher to take her or his students down some path of mutual interest. The AP classroom is where intellectual curiosity goes to die.
In short, somewhere along the way over the past half-century, the AP idea got corrupted.
Many critics lay the blame on the College Board itself, a huge "non-profit" organization that operates like a big business. The College Board earns over half of all its revenues from its Advanced Placement program -- more than all its other revenue streams (SATs, SAT subject tests, PSATs) combined. The College Board's profits for 2009, the most recent year for which records were available, were 8.6 percent of revenue, which would be respectable even for a for-profit corporation. "When a non-profit company is earning those profits, something is wrong," says Americans for Educational Testing Reform [test-bashers]. (The AETR's "report card" on the College Board awards a grade of D and cites [asserts] numerous "areas of misconduct" by the College Board.)
It's clear [no, it isn't] the College Board has the mentality of a voracious corporation, charging $89 a shot for an exam to millions of students who have no business taking it.
The college admissions process today is a total crapshoot. At least for the most competitive colleges, nobody in the applicant pool has any certainty anymore as to what will secure admission. In the face of that uncertainty, one rational form of behavior is to take the shotgun approach, blasting away at the admissions committee with every weapon in the student's armory: multiple AP courses, ridiculous amounts of extracurricular activity, and do-gooder volunteer work rivaling Mother Teresa's.
Lots of guidance counselors will advise families and students that a rational alternative is to opt out of that race. Concentrate on one or two things. Excel at them. I agree.
But it shouldn't be the customer's responsibility to stop a scam. The customer buys into it because the con artist is so skillful and the world is so uncertain. The only way to stop the College Boards of the world is to expose them. Tell people to be wary.
So, students and parents: beware.

Another day, another murder in GR. The West side, invaded by blacks in the last 5 years, has another (probable) black-on-black murder, as a body retrieved from the Grand River is identified as 31-year-old black, Jamel Parker. He had been missing for a month, since a fight broke out on Broadway Street (ghetto West Side street), and Parker was seen running away.
Interviews with fat, white trash women friends of his were shown recently, asking for info on his whereabouts, but then a body was found floating near shore last week. Police say it's a murder. Probably a thug, who died a thug’s death.
I only report this in the context as evidence, of a continuing decline of the formerly safe (and white) West Side of GR.
No other news value imho.

HOW BLACKS PARTY...BYOG (Bring Your Own Gun)
CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say 15 people were shot and one person was killed when gunfire erupted at a Cincinnati nightclub.
WLWT reports that the shooting happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday at Cameo nightclub.
Police say they do not have any immediate leads on suspects but that they are looking for at least 2 shooters.
The victims were taken to four area hospitals. Police say several of the victims have life-threatening injuries.
Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate says that hundreds of people were inside of the nightclub at the time of the shooting, and called it a “chaotic crime scene.”
“Many of them fled, unfortunately. Many of the witnesses fled, but everyone that we can identify is being interviewed,” Neudigate said. (GRA: Of course, that's a black thang—"witnesses flee." When you see that word, you know it's black-involved crime. No witnesses.)

"It's not terrorism," say the network announcers as they report this story. Actually it IS terrorism—and we see it every day on TV, read about it here.
100% Pure Negro Terrorism. But no one will say it, just like there was an effort to avoid saying "Islamic Terror." Now we have to downplay black terrorism, I guess.
President Trump--one question: When will we have a war on negro terrorism?
Retired FBI Assistant Director Jim Kallstrom: A Fifth Column of Treasonous Intelligence Officers are Hamstringing President Trump
Trump has to engage in mass polygraphing of intelligence officers, one day, no warning. While the polygraph machine is imperfect, it’s a start.
He also has to go through the personnel files, and give a retirement payout, or simply force out all Clinton hires.
Those hires from the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” must be intensively investigated. After “Obama’s” trillions in waste, money for buyouts of relatively young officers is scarce. Those who can’t be tripped up by polygraphing will have to be tripped up some other way.

Fourteen Days Later, What was the Motive Behind the March 12 Murders of Derek Greer and Natalie Partida?

Derek Greer looks kind of white.
The suspects look like gang-banging, Mexican or Central American stone killers who were hardened criminals while still in their mothers' wombs. Could racism have been at work? A stick-to-your-own-kind/honor killing?

Who Today Best Embodies the Spirit of William F. Buckley’s National Review? The Answer May Shock You!
By Nicholas Stix
Readers will note the lack of “Pizzagate” coverage at WEJB/NSU, including blogging and even social media retwits, from yours truly. That is because I quickly lost faith in the people promoting the “Pizzagate” story alleging that the Democrat National Committee was using a pizzeria as part of a pedophilia ring.
Since hard evidence is so often difficult to come by in scandal stories, at least early on, I proceed like a juror in a court case, judging their demeanor in the “witness box,” and comparing what they say at point A with what they say at Point B, etc., all the way down the line. I do the same with other players, and compare what Witness #1 says to what Witness #2, et al., have to say.
Needless to say, that’s far from a perfect situation, but you work with what you’ve got.
Early on, I determined that the people promoting “Pizzagate” were exhibiting a level of hysteria in their charges that wasn’t matched by any evidence, and avoided the subject.
The only reason Alex Jones would have apologized so profusely would have to be in response to a realistic threat of a lawsuit by Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis.
I called the pizzeria in Washington, D.C., but was unable to get anyone on the phone, and the recording said that the message box was full. the restaurant’s home page had no way of leaving messages. I left a message at its Facebook page, but have yet to hear back.

A Lynching in Cincinnati: Jamie Urton, 44, Murdered for Driving While White; AP and KSN Misrepresent Lynching as “Fight”; Did Emmitt Till Die in a “Fight”?
By Nicholas Stix
This lynching is very similar to the one committed against Steve Utash, then 54, in Detroit in 2014. An unsupervised black child runs into traffic, causing an accident, in which he is hurt. The white driver stops his car, and is attacked by racist thugs.
Racist black thugs have a history of dragging white drivers out of their vehicles, and beating them within an inch of their lives, even when no unsupervised black child has caused an accident.
Thus, any compassion a white driver (or any other white dealing with blacks in a black area) shows towards blacks is turned by them into a weapon against him. The moral of the story is, if you are white, you must train yourself to not show compassion towards blacks in black-dominated areas, but instead treat them as your mortal enemies.

Ohio police: Driver shot, killed after hitting boy, 4
By Johnnie Harvey
March 25, 2017 at 10:12 a.m. CDT
CINCINNATI (AP) — Police in Cincinnati say a driver was shot and killed after his car hit a 4-year-old boy who ran into the street.
Investigators say they believe the driver got out of his car after hitting the child Friday and a confrontation broke out.
Police say 44-year-old Jamie Urton was shot several times and a passenger suffered minor injuries in the fight [sic] but was not shot.
[What fight? There was no fight. There was a lynching.]
The child hit by the car was hurt but is expected to be OK.
Police say they're looking for three suspects. They say it's not clear yet if any other circumstances led to the shooting just outside downtown Cincinnati.

The Chicken Wings Murder, in East Houston: Two “Teens” Allegedly Suckered Man into Paying with Cash, Plus Chicken Wings, for Sex with the Female, 18, but Instead Beat and Stabbed Him to Death, and Set Him on Fire
By A Texas Reader
“A witness told police Standley was seen on his computer negotiating a price for sex with a woman, who also asked him to bring her chicken wings, prosecutors said.”
N.S.: I haven’t been able to find a picture of the vic, but the judge at Shaquan Bennett’s bail hearing (he was denied bail or bond) referred to the “complainant” as a “black male.”
I didn’t know that a corpse could swear out a complaint.
Note that neither of the defendants is a “teen,” a term for someone under age.
Note too that Michael Slager was denied a bail hearing for over five months. Conversely, these mopes got one less than seven days after being arrested.
Teens accused of luring man, then stabbing, beating, lighting him on fire
Prosecutors said the male and female suspects lured a man seeking sex to an apartment, beat and stabbed him to death, then burned his body.

Doing the Job that Americans Won't Do: Hispanic Woman Naturally Responds to Not being Invited to Death Vigil, by Firing into Crowd; Mourners Respond by Disarming and Pistol Whipping Her

Workplace Feud? Couldn't Find Another Job? Man Indicted for Allegedly Killing Three Co-Workers Inside Restaurant in Prince George's County
I’ve been talking about aspects of what I believe has contributed to this situation for years: More and more businesses and agencies have for over 25 years had a no-white-men-need-apply policy.
Circa 1990, I applied for a job as a drug counselor. There was a group interview situation, and at one point the Hispanic guy running things said that because I was white, he would never consider hiring me—in front of everyone, with no fear.
Walk up the Ladies Shopping Mile on Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue, between 14th and 34th Streets. You may see some white men running stores—during the late 1990s, a Jew named Brian ran the Toys ‘R Us on 34th and Sixth, but during the 1990s, you would typically find no white men (and few white women) workers in those stores, unless he counted as disabled. Thus, there was a tall, pale, young, blond-haired white man sometimes cleaning the floor at the Barnes & Noble superstore on Sixth Avenue, between 22nd and 23rd streets—with a gigantic hearing aid riding atop each ear.
So, if you’re an unemployable, working-class white man, what are you gonna do? You have nothing to live for, and you’re going to end up homeless.

April 20 is most notorious as Hitler’s birthday. However, it’s also the day, in 1972, in which white NYPD patrolman Phillip Cardillo died from gunshot wounds inflicted on him with his own weapon, by a Nation of Islam assassin six days earlier.

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
Thanks to my friend, legman, and partner-in-crime, David in TN, for this article!
This is a classic, 1974 New York Times article on the first arrests in the 1973-1974 Nation of Islam serial and spree murders of whites in San Francisco.
The article appears to be poorly edited, but its typos and other grammatical errors are likely all due to scanning.
Other errors are political in nature, e.g., Mayor Alioto’s denial that the Death Angels were members of the Nation of Islam. The Mayor knew better.
The “midwestern city” mentioned was Chicago, or as the NOI called it, “New Mecca.”
I have a strong hunch, as to who the “man who lives in a midwestern city” is, but I can’t prove it, and he’s still alive. My hunch is based on his being the one man who had motive, means, and opportunity to order the murders.
Back in 2006, one of the members of the SFPD’s Zebra Task Force told me that the murders and burglaries were all run through the local mosque.
I see that once I started publishing a series of reports on the Nation of Islam murders, other men followed in my footsteps, but most of them failed to give attribution. The usual.
Zebra killer J.C. Simon, aka J.C.X. Simon, died in his jail cell at San Quentin Prison on March 12, 2015, of unknown causes.

MAY 2, 1974
New York Times
[Coded, online, NYT summary: data-title="Seven Blacks Seized in 'Zebra' Murders" data-author="By WALLACE TURNER Special to The New York Times" data-media="" data-description="7 black men arrested on May 1 in San Francisco Zebra killings; Mayor Alioto says group called 'Death Angels' is behind killings in city and perhaps more than 80 murders in state, although Atty Gen Evelle J Younger disputes statement; suspects identified as J C Simon, Larry D Green, Manuel Moorer, Douglas Burton, Tom Manney, Clarence Jamerson and Dwight Stallings; Green, Morrer and Jamerson said to be Black Muslims; Alioto says that Death Angels is believed to be directed by man in midwestern city, who grants promotions to members on basis of criminal acts performed; says recruitment is done in prison; insists that no evidence ties group to Black Muslims; illus (L)" data-publish-date="May 2, 1974" data-share-tools-initialized="1">]
SAN FRANCISCO, May 1—Seven black men were arrested by the police here early today on murder charges, and within hours Mayor Joseph L. Alioto said “I am satisfied that we have the men” who committed 12 apparently motiveless slayings of whites in five months.
Seven Blacks Seized in ‘Zebra’ Murders
The Mayor also said that a statewide—perhaps nationwide —“vicious ring of murderers called ‘Death Angels'” was behind the killings here and perhaps more than 80 similar killings through the state. The 12 murders here have been nicknamed tor the radio channel used by police investigators —“Z” for zebra.
No other law enforcement agency here, including the San Francisco Police Department, was willing to support the Mayor's statements about the Death Angel murder ring.
[Publicly, maybe not, but Mayor Alioto got his information from the very law enforcement organizations which reportedly refused to publicly support him!]
Attorney General Evelie J. Younger, opening a news conference to say he was well aware of the “pitfalls of any careless comments,” said it was for Mr. Alioto to decide “whether his comments are wise or unwise.”
[These attacks on an elected official for telling the truth sound awfully familiar!]
“We have no evidence to indicate that those responsible for the Zebra killings in San Franscisco committed murders outside the bay area,” Mr. Younger said.
[AG Younger, a Republican, was lying through his teeth. Not only had state law enforcement determined that the murders were being committed up and down the state, and East Bay police and media had reported on over 30 such additional murders, but a member of the Zebra Task force, whom I interviewed in 2006, recounted getting a memo from the FBI, stating that the NOI was murdering whites on both coasts. Note, too, the NOI’s racist murders of whites in Oklahoma City, during the same period.]
Charles Bates, special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation office here, said he had never heard of the Death Angels and added, “I know of nothing now that puts this matter in the F.B.I.'s jurisdiction.”
[Another liar is heard from.]
Both Mr. Younger and Mr. Alioto denied any political partisanship in their statements. Mr. Younger is a Republican running for a second tern; Mayor Alioto in recent polls has been shown to be running third in his quest for the Democratic nomination for Governor.
Early Morning Raids
Six of the arrests were made between 5 and 8:15 A.M. in coordinated raids involving more than 100 San Francisco policemen. The seventh arrest was made soon after.
The police gave minimal information about the prisoners. Lineups were planned for witnesses to the murders, officials said.
Reporters were able to establish from state prison officials that two of the men had been Black Muslims [the vernacular phrase for the Nation of Islam] while in prison. Other sources identified a third man as a Black Muslim.
A spokesman for the religious group reacted angrily to the Mayor's statements. The spokesman said that the church would defend its members unless “we find they are guilty and we will not support them.”
[He lied. The criterion for defending fellow NOI members was that they never confess to any crimes against “the white man’s law.” The only Black Muslim they didn’t defend was Jesse Lee Cooks, because he confessed.]
The seven arrested, and charges against them were as follows:
J. C. Simon, 29, charged with two counts of murder and single counts of conspiracy to commit murder, assault with a deadly weapon “and robbery. The police said the robbery charge grew out of a holdup of a grocery store a few blocks from City Hall on Nov. 25, 1973, where Saleen Erakat, a grocer, was killed. This was the first Zebra slaying.
[The first Zebra killings were committed no later than Friday, August 3-Saturday, August 4, 1973. The victims were Stephen M. Conachy, 21, and Joseph M. Villaroman, 17, repectively.]
Larry D. Green, one count each of, murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and robbery and two counts of assault with deadly weapon. He was said to bea truck driver and a Black Muslim.
Manuel Moorer, 29, murder and conspiracy to commit murder. He was on parole, and while in San Quentin prison was a Black Muslim, officials said.
Douglas Burton, 22, Clarence Jamerson, 27, Dwight Stallings, 23, and Tom Manney, 31, all charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
[Burton, Jamerson, Stallings and Manney would all soon be released, based on an alleged “lack of evidence,” even though several of the murders were carried out using Manney’s car. Manney was the manager of the NOI-owned, Black Self-Help Moving and Storage, where three of the eventually convicted killers worked, at the time of the murders. Jamerson and Stallings are long since dead, Stallings by murder. Zebra author Clark Howard referred to one suspect by the pseudonym “Jasper Childs.” Since I can account for the three others who were released, by the process of elimination, I’m left with Douglas Burton, aka Edgar D. Burton. The reader can easily figure out why Howard would single one man out for special treatment.
Manney long ago changed his name to a Moslem one, but I don’t know what it is, and have no idea if he’s still alive, and if he is, where he is.]
Mr. Jimerson, who served a year in prison for receiving stolen property, was a black Muslim during his term, officials said.
No Details on Arrests
The police said that Mr. Manney, while a student at St. Ignatius High School here, was an all‐city fullback in 1959. He was said to have been a varsity halfback at San Francisco State College from 1961 to 1963 and to have been drafted in 1963 by the professional Pittsburgh Steelers but never to have played. He did not graduate from college although he returned to study there in the autumn of 1968, school employes said.
The police would not say where the men were arrested and except for identifying the grocery holdup with one charge against Mr. Simon, they would not tie any of the men to any specific criminal act.
The police would give no information on what leads caused them to make the seven arrests, but Mayor Alioto said at a news conference that the arrests had come after investigations that corroborated the story of a witness interviewed by the Mayor and the police last Saturday morning in the Mayor's office.
In a long prepared statement and in reply to questions the Mayor said that he believed the Death Angels to be directed by a man who lives in a midwestern city. Mr. Alioto said he did not know the man's mame and he would not identify the city.
“We don't know his name,” Mr. Alioto said, “All we know is that certain trips are made to a certain city outside of California to determine if certain people are entitled to certain promotions.”
The Mayor said he believed the Death Angels organization had titles and offices to which advancement, was awarded on the basis of criminal acts performed. He said recruitment was done in prison.
He insisted repeatedly that no, evidence existed to tie the group to the Black Muslims: In his statement he said it “is based on muddled aberrations clearly outside the mainstream of Islamic religion.” In answers to questions he made an analogy between that relationship and the relationship between members of the Southern Septist Church and the Ku Klux Klan.
John Muhammad, minister of Temple 26 in San Francisco, said at a 10‐minute news conference where questions were not taken that he thought Mayor Alioto was clever “but at the same time he left some doors open that maybe some of the murders, were committed by the followers of the Honorable Elijah‐Muhammad (national leader of the church) but we don't even carry a penknife and this the Federal Government knows.”
Mr. Muhammad said the Mayor wanted defendants charged “because he wanted his office to look good.” He accused the Mayor of “already convicting the men.” He insisted that Muslims “do not take part in any random shootings.”
“I don't think the Death Angels is a religious organization, even though some of its members may be connected with the Muslim church,” Mr. Alioto said at his news conference.
“The local group is a division of a larger organization dedicated to the murder and mutilation of whites and dissident blacks,” he said in his prepared statement. “The pattern of killing is by random street shooting or hacking to death with machete, cleaver or knife. Decapitation and other forms of mayhem bring special credit from the organization for the killers. Hitchhikers are a particular prey.”
Mr. Alioto issued a list of 73 names of murder victims from several parts of this state, but he said that he suspected there were more than 80 murders committed by Death Angels and that some would never be, known. He mentioned that many suspicious disappearances had been reported to policemen in several California cities.
