American Renaissance on the Liberal Mind

Opening Fire



Another debate in which the facts don’t matter.



reviewed by Thomas Jackson
















More Guns,


Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun-Control Laws


John R. Lott, Jr.



University of Chicago


1998, 225 pp.


$23.00





How strange it must be to be a liberal. Driven by slogans, blinded by superstitions, dazzled by fantasies, the liberal stumbles through life oblivious to facts. There is almost nothing the liberal thinks he knows about race, social policy, sex roles, individual differences, and even history that is not some combination of slogan, superstition, and fantasy. John Lott’s soberly brilliant More Guns, Less Crime could not possibly be a more convincing demonstration that what liberals think they know about guns is fantasy, too.


The liberal view, of course, is that private citizens should not have guns and that gun control will stop violence. Prof. Lott, who teaches law and economics at the University of Chicago, makes an air-tight case for the opposite view: that when citizens carry concealed weapons criminals are afraid to attack and violence declines. Prof. Lott’s approach is to track violent crime rates over time in those parts of the country that have liberalized gun laws as opposed to places that have not.

The above excerpt is from Thomas Jackson’s review of More Guns, Less Crime, in the June, 2000 issue of American Renaissance, which issue can be read in its entirety for free at AmRen’s Web site.

The issue is up to AmRen’s usual high standards, with a cover story on how whites are being pushed out of Africa, and shorter stories on, among other subjects, African racism, university hate crime hoaxes committed by blacks, and whites who had been railroaded on phony “hate crime” charges.

For over 19 years, AmRen’s brilliant editor-publisher, Jared Taylor, has gotten every monthly issue out on time. But while you can read the June, 2000 issue, and over 200 other back issues for free, they cost real money to publish. As I have said before, AmRen is the gold standard, when it comes to the science and politics of race, with not just journalism but social science articles in its issues, and independent reports, such as The Color of Crime: Race, Crime, and Justice in America and Hispanics: A Statistical Portrait, which may also be downloaded for free at its Web site. I recommend, in particular, The Color of Crime, whose 2005 edition remains the state of the art in the criminology of race. I realize that tenured racial socialists (aka multiculturalists) will laugh at the preceding statement, but all an honest person needs to do is read The Color of Crime and the Department of Justice statistics on which it is based (and which are cited in its footnotes), and then read the tenured racial socialists’ alleged scholarship, to see who the laughing stock is.

While Jared Taylor eschews all luxuries to publish the magazine and reports on a shoestring; writers, editors, researchers, printers and the Post Office must all be paid. And I am proud to say that I am one of those writer-researchers. That’s why I’m asking you to please generously support American Renaissance with a subscription, and with a tax-deductible donation to its sponsor, The New Century Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Through December 31, any donations you make to The New Century Foundation can be written off of your 2009 taxes.

And while you’re at the site, please visit the AmRen bookstore, where you can purchase, at reasonable, and in some cases remarkably low prices, some of the most important books ever written on race, by authors such as Jared Taylor, Michael Levin, Richard Lynn, Sam Francis, Carleton Putnam, Frank Salter and J. Philippe Rushton.

Thank you.

Fake Encyclopedia Wikipedia Harbors Real Blackmailer: Judge Orders Wik to Expose Criminal











Pretend Encyclopedia Co-Founder Jimmy Wales




The Pretend Encyclopedia's symbol

By Nicholas Stix

Wikipedia, or as I call it, The Pretend Encyclopedia (TPE), has for years been a libel factory dominated by leftwing frauds, who fill its entries on controversial subjects with lies, while immediately censoring the occasional truth that might find its way in, and whitelisting the truthteller. The people who insert the lies and remove the truths are called “editors”; Wik founder and guru, James “Jimmy” Wales, insists that it is “the encyclopedia anyone can edit.”

It seems that an honest editor finally made an appearance at Wik/TPE, and fittingly, he was allegedly a blackmailer. In “Wikipedia ordered to reveal identity of ‘editor’ accused of blackmailing mother and child,” the Daily Mail’s Colin Fernandez reported,

A businesswoman smeared by an anonymous contributor to Wikipedia has won a landmark legal battle to have her accuser unmasked.

The victim had 'confidential and sensitive' details about her professional life and her child written into her page on the online encyclopaedia.

She also received anonymous threatening letters suggesting her accuser would reveal information to the press.

The businesswoman's identity is secret by order of the court but is thought to be wellknown in business circles.

Now the website has been ordered to hand over technical information to help track down the blackmailer.

The case is the latest example of Wikipedia - which has 325million visitors a month and can be edited by anyone - being used for malicious or mischievous ends.

Mr Justice Tugendhat said in his judgment at the High Court: 'In ordinary language, the mother believes that she is the subject of an attempt at blackmail. On the information before the court, she has reason to believe that.'

The amendments made to the woman's entry involved information about her professional expenses claims and details about her child which the judge did not reveal….

Feds Ignore Warnings by Moslem Terrorist’s Father; Obama: It’s All Good

By Nicholas Stix


New York Daily News reporter Sam Goldsmith on the attempt by Islamic terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab to murder almost 300 people on Flight 253.

Mutallab’s father had notified the feds of his son’s beliefs months ago, but they ignored him. They were too busy monitoring and seeking to prosecute white American patriots as “hate groups.”

Goldsmith reports that Mutallab had openly expressed his terroristic views while attending an exclusive high school in Togo.

This Day reported that the suspect has been known for extremist religious views since high school at the British International School in Lome, Togo.

“At the secondary school, he was known for preaching about Islam to his schoolmates and he was popularly called ‘Alfa,’ a local coinage for Islamic scholar,” This Day reported.

Apparently, preaching to kill all non-Moslems is the height of Islamic scholarship. Perhaps one of our most respected centers of higher learning will offer as an alternative to incarceration, hiring Mutallab to an endowed chair in religious studies.

Goldsmith reports that the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” (my phrasing, not Goldsmith's) had a teleconference with security advisors, and “assured the American people that all necessary security measures are being taken.” Translation: The Federal government is reaching out to ever more suspicious Moslems, while harassing white, Christian patriots. Look for more racial profiling of 80-year-old, white American travelers.

Meanwhile, a Justice Department official has expressed shock that so few white Americans were being prosecuted for hate crimes.

Old Information Unearthed by a California Reader Recalls Three More Racist, Nation of Islam Murderers, and One Racist Co-Conspirator, Sacramento Divis

By Nicholas Stix
Updated on December 27, at 4:19 a.m.

Due to a successful campaign by the MSM and academia to "disappear" the Nation of Islam's 1970s racist mass murder campaign against whites, most whites know nothing of it. And most of those who know something, recall only that some black "splinter" group murdered a few whites in San Francisco.

But this was not the work of a "splinter" group, the murders were not limited to San Francisco, and it wasn't a few whites in San Francisco. The mass murder campaign was orchestrated out of the NOI's headquarters in "New Mecca" (Chicago), was run through each city's local mosque, and 17 whites were murdered in the City by the Bay alone, just during the period of October, 1973-April 1974. In his classic work, Zebra, Clark Howard estimated that the NOI murdered 270 whites in the state of California alone during the early 1970s. During the same period, the NOI also murdered whites in Oklahoma City and New York City, and an old San Francisco copper who worked the original Zebra detail told me that at the time he saw a secret FBI memo that reported that a parallel campaign was underway on the East Coast.

* * *

A California reader just made this a very Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa for me. Just before Christmas ended, he contacted me, asking if I might be interested in learning about some more “Zebra” (Nation of Islam) murderers. I answered in the affirmative, of course, and soon after the clock struck twelve, he sent me a gold mine of old newspaper clippings from 1974 (there are more to come) about NOI killings and shootings in Sacramento.

And really, what more fit and proper way is there to observe Kwanzaa, a fake holiday celebrating genocidal black supremacy, than by remembering victims (especially ones whom we had never previously commemorated) of the genocidal terror cult, the Nation of Islam?

The white victims were: Joseph F. Belmore, 25 (murdered); Raymond Silva, 53 (murdered); Gerry Bakarich (wounded); and Lloyd Revell, 44 (wounded).

The black assailants were (ages at the time of their crimes): Russell Lang, 19, Emery L. Hanson, 25, and Larry Pratt, 19. Dale McKinney, 23 or 24 at the time of the crimes, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder, and sentenced to life in prison, but not convicted of actually carrying out any of the murders.

Belmore was an unemployed veteran who had survived the War in Vietnam, only to be murdered by racist terrorists while sitting in his room in his parents’ house, sipping a drink.

Silva, a private detective, was ambushed in an alley behind his apartment and killed by a shotgun blast.

Bakarich, an off-duty policeman, was shotgunned.

Revell, 44, was also wounded by a shotgun volley.

My reader grew up with racist NOI murderer Larry Pratt in Vallejo, northeast of San Francisco, and southwest of Sacramento. He wrote,

Larry and his pals tried to kill two people before they ambushed Joe Belmore. Larry’s still in prison in Vacaville, CA….

I’ve spent time trying to understand how one man could make such incredibly poor decisions about his life and then right next to him [in their graduation picture from the Vallejo H.S. Black Student Union] a man becomes a minister. Of course I understand Larry still considers himself to be “a religious leader” in the Black Muslim church.

Larry was also partially responsible for a major race riot at Vallejo High School in Ca which I witnessed in 1973. Him and his friends used to march around the high school in little cadres with black berets, and then catch isolated white students in rest rooms, etc. and beat them up. They never got me, but a lot of people I knew were hurt.

Oh and Lang who’s mentioned below was paroled last year only to have it rescinded before release by Gov. Arnold S.

Note that two of the four white men the Sacramento NOI terrorists shotgunned were peace officers. That can’t have been a coincidence. (On April 14, 1972, a mob of NOI terrorist-followers of Louis Farrakhan committed the ambush murder of white NYPD Patrolman Phillip Cardillo, following a false “10-13”—“officer in need of assistance”—call, in Farrakhan’s Harlem mosque.)

When reading the following articles, note the differences between the reporting of the day, and today’s reporting, and mid-1970s’ law enforcement and today. The reporters did not deliberately seek to hide the respective racial identities of victims and perpetrators, and law enforcement personnel did not routinely lie about racist black killers’ motive.

3 Black Muslims arrested as shotgun-slaying suspects

SACRAMENTO (UPI) Three Black Muslims were arrested Wednesday on murder charges for a shotgun slaying, and authorities said they were investigating other motiveless shootings which may have been prompted by the San Francisco “Zebra” attacks.
Booked for the murder of Joseph F. Belmore, 25, a white, were Russell Lang, 19, Emery L. Hanson, 25, and Larry Pratt, 19, all members of the local Black Muslim [NS: NOI] sect, police said. Belmore, who lived with his parents, was shot early Wednesday and was the second shooting victim in Sacramento in the last week.
An off-duty policeman, Gerry Bakarich, was shotgunned and wounded Saturday night. The officer remains hospitalized.

On Tuesday morning, Raymond Silva, 53, a private detective, was ambushed in an alley behind his apartment and killed by a shotgun blast. On Monday, Lloyd Revell, 44, another white, was wounded by a shotgun volley.

Sheriff Duane Lowe said the shootings appeared to be indiscriminate attacks by blacks against whites. Following the arrest of the three suspects and their identification as members of the Black Muslims [NOI], authorities said, officers obtained a search warrant and raided the Muslim headquarters.

Four face life terms


SACRAMENTO (API) — How does it feel to sit in court and hear yourself described as a dangerous terrorist who should be put in prison for life?

“At limes I felt I would have found myself guilty,” said Dale McKinney, 24.
McKinney, secretary of Sacramento’s Black Muslim [NS: NOI] temple, was one of four young Muslims sentenced to life imprisonment Wednesday.

His three co-defendants, Larry Pratt, 26, and Emery Hanson and Russell Lang, both 19, were convicted of first degree murder in the shooting death of a white man, Joseph Belmore, last April. Police said a sawed-off shotgun was found in their car shortly after the shooting.

McKinney, arrested in the Muslim temple five hours later, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder.

The first-degree murder charge against him was dropped after the jury deadlocked 11-1 for conviction.

The times standard, Eureka CA
Monday, November 11, 1974

SACRAMENTO (UPI) - Four Black Muslims have been convicted of conspiring to murder an unemployed Vietnam veteran as he sat in his living room.
Three of the four men were convicted of killing Joseph Belimore, 25, as he drank a cocktail in his house last April 24.

A six-man, six-woman jury returned the verdicts Saturday in Sacramento County Superior Court against Emery L. Hanson, 26, Russell Land, 18, and Larry Pratt, 19.
Dale E. McKinney, 24, was found guilty of conspiring to murder Belmore, but was acquitted of murder.

A conspiracy to commit murder conviction carries a life prison sentence. The death penalty is not applicable under the new capital punishment law.

McKinney was also found guilty of wounding off-duty detective Gerald Bakarich with a shotgun outside a grocery April 20.

All four men were found innocent of assaulting Lloyd O. Revel as he walked home from a bar the night of April 21.

During the trial, which began Aug. 12, prosecutors said the conspiracy was founded in the teachings of the Nation Islam (Black Muslims). [NS: Emphasis by newspaper.]

Judge Michael J. Virga set produced a sentencing for Nov. 20.

Happy Kwanzaa!


I extend my best wishes on this fake holiday to my genocidal, black supremacist readers, and to my white communist readers who support them, including whoever my good friend and publicist Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is assigning to read me these days!

Love,

Fjordman Gets Political Correctness Wrong

By Nicholas Stix

…My conclusion is that we live in a society where the ideal is not merely Reason Alone but Thought Alone; we are supposed to create an entire society and physical reality purely by thought, which should result in perfect, cosmic, universal justice and equality for all. Anything and everything that impedes with our ability to create this reality must be banned as “irrational” or “hate.” If God and religion prevent us from creating what we want then God and religion must be removed; the theory of evolution can take care of that for us. However, we must be careful not to follow this theory to its logical conclusion because then biology instead of God would inhibit our ability to create perfect equality between men and women and between humans of all races. In short, we must ban reality.

This is in essence what Political Correctness is all about: Banning any discussion of reality so we can create a perfect world based on Thought Alone. In a strange sense this could ironically be seen as the final culmination of millennia of Western use of reason until we finally succeeded in creating a society based on Reason Alone. Although I cannot pinpoint exactly how I suspect you could successfully argue that there is a form of Platonism underlying this mental construct. After all, in Plato’s world the perfect, unchanging Ideas were physically separated from observed reality. In a way this is exactly what the modern West has created.

The dream of a perfect world of absolute equality may be a beautiful dream but it is a dream, based on many different false beliefs. It will quickly turn into a very real nightmare if you try to implement it. Among the largest of these false beliefs is the idea that man is naturally good and a perfectly rational being. I am personally not ready to embrace the opposite claim either, that man is by nature evil or sinful. My preferred view is that man is flawed and imperfect, yet that is quite sufficient to show that you can never create a perfect society with universal justice, just like you cannot create a perfect building using imperfect building materials.


Fjordman, “The Cult of Reason – The Dark Side of the Enlightenment,” The Brussels Journal.


With all due respect, Fjordman has it wrong. Political correctness is not about creating a perfect world, or about equality. Those are just talking points, framing devices, diversion tactics. PC is about power—the power to lie, the more outrageously, the better; to steal all of a nation’s wealth; to imprison the innocent, and to murder, murder, murder, at will!

But PC does not mean the same thing to everyone. To a white communist, PC means using blacks and Hispanics (because he considers them hopeless dunces) to steal all of the assets from, and then murder all non-communist whites.

To a black supremacist, PC means using white communists and Hispanics (because he considers them hopeless) to steal all of the assets from, and then murder all non-communist whites, then all Hispanics, and then all communist whites. And then he will finish off all black opponents. (The “Obama” difference is that he would airlift in scores of millions of black Africans, in order to rapidly change America’s racial balance.)

To a Hispanic supremacist, PC means … (change the names from before), with the added strategy of bringing in all of Latin America to overwhelm America’s historic people.

Fjordman makes the same error that many philosophers (e.g., Larry Auster) do: They assume that their opponents are philosophical, too.

Is Racism Driving North Carolina Community College Tuition Politics?


(I received the following press release today from William Gheen, of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, better known as ALIPAC.)

RELEASE: NC Illegal Immigrant College Access Meeting Rigged!

The December 18, 2009, public input meeting required by law on the matter of the N.C. Community College Board giving illegal aliens access to our colleges was rigged.

It was rigged in several ways.

First, the meeting was placed on a workday morning the Friday before Christmas, when taxpayers that are working would be unable to attend.

Second, there were no N.C. Community College Board members even present at this meeting! It appears they could not even take time off to be there, and the crowd was assured that our comments would be delivered to the board members and they would receive and review all of our comments and letters. Pretty shabby that not one board member attended the meeting.

Third, the illegal aliens and their supporters had special insider knowledge and treatment. They arrived and were allowed to sign in to speak at 8 a.m., or two hours prior to the advertised start of the meeting.

When confronted with this information, the state employees running the meeting lied to citizens and the press. When I asked them what time sign-ups began, they claimed 9 a.m. I pointed out that was impossible since it was 9:03 a.m. and I was signing in as speaker #35! Their story then changed to the claim that sign ups started at 8:30 a.m.

The meeting organizer and the women running the sign up table continued to lie and claim that sign-ups began at 8:30 a.m., even when confronted by Ron Woodard of NC Listen, Randy Dye of Randy's Right blog, and James Johnson of NC Fire who signed in as speakers 28, 29, and 30 at 8:25 a.m.!

We have video evidence of an event organizer telling Randy Dye, who had signed in as speaker #29 earlier at 8:25 a.m., that sign ups began at 8:30 a.m. We gave the main event organizer on film making the same false claim and she is on record with WRAL making that 8:30 a.m. claim as well.

Another lie we were told was that nobody was allowed to sign up anyone else. I asked that question directly and was told "under no circumstances".

Later, we found out that one of our supporters, Mrs. Norton (Speaker number 47) had been signed up by her young friend that assisted her at the event. Her young friend, who had signed her in and was handed a slip by the ladies at the table without Mrs. Norton present, had the appearance of a young and liberal college student much like the young protesters that were all signed in to speak prior to 8:30 a.m.

We documented and can prove that middle-aged white males were told they could not sign anyone else, as the assigned speaking time was almost full, while a teenager, with a blue streak of hair similar in age demographic and social style to the pro-illegal alien protesters, was allowed to sign in another person.

The fact that illegal alien supporters were indeed signing up other people was evidenced when speaker #25 was confronted by the presiding officer for not being the person signed up in that position after he announced his name. When confronted he responded "Oh she had to leave" and then was allowed to proceed. The young students and their handlers were well aware of their abilities to exploit the meeting rules with full assistance and cover from those conducting this political charade.

Illegal alien supporters had special access to those planning this meeting and were aware that they could show up and sign in two hours in advance to fill up time and give a false impression of spontaneous support for illegals in our community colleges.

The results were that the first 26 speakers, comprising the first 78 of 150 minutes of testimony to the N.C. Community College Board and the N.C. media were all in favor of illegal aliens attending our community colleges, which are currently turning innocent Americans away because they are over capacity.

Six people, myself included, spoke out on behalf of the 70-81% of NC citizens who oppose illegal aliens being in our community colleges.

Fifty-one people, mostly high school and college students, college professors, and college administrators, who are out on Christmas vacation, were present to support the illegal aliens.

Of course, we would have preferred that more people that are against taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens had come to this meeting to speak out. We did our best to notify people five days prior, but we were heavily engaged fighting against the new Amnesty bill in Washington D.C. American apathy is a huge reason illegal immigration is rampant, but what we faced at the Dec. 18 meeting had been in the planning by the pro-illegal alien faction for many months. The illegal alien supporting faction had an advantage over us in numbers attending, insider connections and information, preferential treatment, time to prepare, funding, and staff dedicated to their goals.

Many of the people who came to speak out against illegal aliens being granted access to our community colleges were not allowed to speak because the meeting ended at 12:30 p.m. and the event organizers made it clear they would not extend the time allowed.

Anyone who signed up to speak at the meeting after approximately 9:20 a.m., for a meeting that was barely advertised to the public as starting at 10 a.m., was not allowed to speak. Many left the meeting early, realizing their time had been wasted and their participation had been blocked by the illegal alien supporter exploitation of the process, insider information, and preferential treatment.

One such speaker deprived of a chance to present was a County Commissioner bearing a commission resolution opposing access for illegals to our colleges.

Instead of using my three minutes to make my points on this matter, I spent my three minutes warning the public and the press that the political theater they were witnessing in the room was rigged and not representative of the views of the public.

I had intended to use my time to point out to the N.C. Community College Board, media, and public that a decision to grant illegal aliens access to our community colleges was not a simple rule change to be approved by a board made up of appointees. A matter of this magnitude should require a debate and vote by the N.C. General Assembly to allow taxpayers the highest level of representation in this matter.

Those of us who are aware that 70-81% of our legal American citizens oppose illegal aliens going to our colleges are quite aware that the N.C. Board of Community Colleges is doing the political dirty work here to avoid Democratic lawmakers from taking the heat for this unpopular and harmful move.

I had also hoped to point out that millions of Americans are now aware that what behind-the-scenes powers are trying to do for illegal aliens here in N.C. is only a small part of a much larger plan that is in progress across the nation, and that the plans involving illegal aliens, taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens, and future voting rights for illegal aliens are all happening without public or Congressional approval and in violation of the existing laws of the United States.

The bureaucrats who are formulating college access for illegal aliens are working hard not to alarm the public and to soothe any and all concerns while manufacturing appearances of broad support for their plans.

Two consistent claims are that American students will not be treated unfairly and that illegal aliens will not be given any special or preferential treatment, and the illegals will have to pay out-of-state admission prices, which are very high.

Yet, state employees overtly lied to the media and public on Dec. 18, 2009, and illegal aliens and their supporters were given both special information, support, placement, and treatment that were not afforded to the general public at this meeting. A large volume of those speaking out for the illegals also demanded in-state tuition rates for illegal aliens which was soundly defeated in 2005 when HB 1183 collapsed under massive public pressure.

JWP Civitas polling later determined in 2006 that 81% of N.C. likely voters were less likely to vote for any state lawmaker who supported in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

So we learned for a fact on Dec. 18, 2009, that the state employees and agencies promoting illegal alien access to community colleges are lying, are working in collusion with the illegal-alien supporters, and the eventual goal is to give illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition, as we have seen in ten other states!

The testimony and opinions of those that support in-state tuition and college access for illegal aliens has been sullied by the unethical tactics deployed by those conducting political theater with this meeting.

This report is being sent to N.C. lawmakers, media, and members of the public to raise awareness of the deceptive, unethical, improper, and possibly illegal actions taken by state employees, agents of the N.C. Community College Board, and illegal-alien supporters on Dec. 18, 2009.

On behalf of the vast majority of North Carolina citizens who do not want any non-emergency medical taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens, including no college access, licenses, or in-state tuition, that the N.C. Community College Board refer this matter to the N.C. Legislature immediately.

We call on our elected officials at the N.C. General Assembly to call for the matter to be resolved via legislation, instead of bureaucratic orders from non-elected state employees.

We would also like to see a full investigation into the public input meeting of Dec. 18, 2009, to determine which state employees gave special information, special treatment to the illegal-alien supporting faction and what power brokers behind the scenes secured this unfair advantage over the general public.

State government and all government should be transparent and fair with equal access to all American citizens. All American citizens deserve fair treatment, the truth, and adequate representation on important matters such as illegal immigration. On Friday, Dec. 18, 2009, fair treatment, the truth, transparency, equal access, and adequate representation were all usurped by illegal aliens and their supporters, which apparently have more influence over our government that the American public at this time.

It is heartbreaking to think of what our defenseless children are having to endure from this same kind of systematic abuse within our public schools. In this case, we have a clear example of state employees, teachers, and administrators encouraging their own students to lie and cheat for advantage with racist undertones.

Views and Reviews

By George S. Schuyler

MAR 6 – 1965
(The opinions expressed in this column are those of the writer and do not necessarily express the policy or opinions of The Pittsburgh Courier.)
A package of dynamite is “The Great Deceit” by my old friend, Zygmund Dobbs, a demon researcher, whose writings are no comfort to many of the luminaries of liberalism in the U. S. A. In his latest book, which bears a foreword by the distinguished










Mr. Schuyler
Archibald B. Roosevelt, son of the former president Theodore, Mr. Dobbs does one of the greatest debunking jobs since the days of the muckrakers at the turn of the century. His special target is the social pseudo sciences, and those who teach them and write the textbooks. In the first place, they are not sciences at all, in the sense of exactitude. They better might be called socialist sciences, since the name science was attached to this socialist propaganda, in order to make it more palatable and acceptable to those already not brainwashed, but eager to be “educated.”

* * *

Mr. Dobbs expresses our present educational system and the Socialist-Communist hierarchy behind it, which was weaned on Marxism, and founded, promoted and developed a dozen socialist fronts to carry on the work. At first, these outfits honestly proclaimed their collectivist mission, like the Intercollegiate Socialist Society. But taking a leaf from the British Fabian experience, they changed that name after World War I, to the League for Industrial Democracy, which carried on as before, with the same leaders, but a more respectable cognomen. There were only a few of these people, but they were strategically placed and zealous in their deceit. It was these people who organized the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, the National Urban League, the Americans for Democratic Action, and a dozen other socialist fronts, working for collectivism or the new slavery. This element, virtually, has taken over the management of most of the big funds and foundations, with a bankroll of about seven billion dollars, to subvert our society.

* * *

Presently, large numbers of Federal legislators, Cabinet officers, Supreme Court and Federal District Court judges, state legislators and others belong to the apparatus which is far more sinister than the John Birch Society. The last presidential election was a goldmine for them, and they now, are well burrowed into the fabric of government.
As proof of the hypocrisy of many of these socialists, Mr. Dobbs quotes what they have said privately about the Negroes whom they profess they want to save, and other minorities. Although a converted Jew himself, Karl Marx was violently anti-Jewish, and Hitler never said worse things about the Jews than Marx and Engels did. Beatrice Webb talked about Negroes like Thomas Dixon. Friedrich Engels spoke of the “superior development of the Aryans,” as did all of the German socialists. A French socialist, Albert Regnard, classed the Aryans as “the only race to possess the notions of “justice, liberty and beauty.” To him, the Jewish race was “deplorably inferior.” U.S. socialists, in the post-Civil War era, espoused Aryanism through the Populist movement.
Victor Berger, of Milwaukee, first Socialist Congressman (1911), called the Negro “inferior,” saying “There can be no doubt that the Negroes and mulattoes constitute a lower race.” John M. Work, once Socialist party secretary, promised that “Socialism will relieve you from having to associate with black people.” Franz Boas, the socialist anthropologist, held the Negro brain was smaller than the white.
There is much more to that effect in “The Great Deceit,” which you can get from the Veritas Foundation, West Sayville, N. Y., cloth; paper). It will dispel many of your illusions.

This column was sent to me, in scanned form, by Joel T. Lefevre, who is himself what the great Schuyler would have called a “demon researcher.”

I first met Joel at the American Renaissance conference in February, 2008. At the Preserving Western Civilization conference one year later, he handed me one of the last existing copies of the handsomely bound, paperback, The Great Deceit. Among other things, Zygmund Dobbs was the first researcher to show that Franz Boas was a fraud, and may be the only one to likewise expose Gunnar Myrdal. One of Dobbs’ lessons is that where race is concerned, the socialist/communist distinction is a distinction without a difference.

Joel T. Lefevre was for several years Sam Francis’ successor as editor of the Council of Conservative Citizens’ newspaper, The Citizens Informer. More recently, he has served as the Webmaster for several extraordinary sites which, together, comprise a University in Inner exile, containing a treasure trove of knowledge that was banished from the Antiversity and most public libraries so long ago that most of the racial socialists—they call themselves “multiculturalists,” “liberals,” etc., but used to be known as “communists”—today controlling those institutions have never even heard of them.
 

Keynes at Harvard: Economic Deception as a Political Credo

This is the companion work to The Great Deception, which Joel has downloaded, in complete form, to the Internet, and can be read at no cost! (Joel is presently at work, downloading The Great Deception.)
 

Manning Johnson

I had never heard of Manning Johnson until a couple of weeks ago, when Joel told me about him, and directed me to the site he had set up. Johnson was a brilliant and fearless black anti-communist. At this site, Joel has downloaded Johnson’s entire work, Color, Communism, and Common Sense, and both a recording and a transcript of Johnson’s farewell address.
 

Selected Works of R. Carter Pittman

Carter Pittman was a lawyer—but don’t hold that against him—constitutional theorist, and George Mason scholar.

“I am Not an American, I am a Muslim”

Tina, one of Larry Auster’s readers writes,

I am a simple school bus driver. Here is a conversation I heard. Last year we had an Iranian girl who loudly proclaimed, when the school was in its Patriotic Songs Celebration (“This Land Is Your Land,” etc.): “I am not an American, I am a Muslim.”

This was done on the bus so all could hear.

This is what they feel, deep down. They don’t think like us, they lie without compunction, they want us dead or out of the way, because they are not fools like the Propositional Nationalists….

(This is a re-run from April (and Independence Day weekend). We in the Stix household viewed John Wayne's swan song, The Shootist, twice over Independence Day weekend, but that's another essay.)

We in the Stix household recently watched the classic John Wayne western, True Grit. In Wayne’s unsentimental yet raffishly charming portrayal, protagonist Marshal Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn is an occasional coward, occasional thief, occasional perjurer, maybe even an occasional murderer, and a full-time drunk. But Rooster Cogburn has grit.

Cogburn may be a fictional character, but he is a recognizable type to anyone familiar with American history, by which I do not mean the propaganda currently promoted in our schools and universities.

In this country, men with grit and greatness—most of whom were not cowards, thieves, perjurers or murderers, though quite a few were drunks—used to practically sprout out of the soil like corn. America’s first census, in 1790, showed a combined three million freemen and slaves, and yet there was probably more greatness then than there is now, with 100 times as many warm bodies.

Well, I’m not George Washington, and you’re not Thomas Jefferson; we can only try and be the best we can be. But we have to try!

Various powers aim to rob Americans of their patrimony. VDARE.com aims, as one of the leading forces in the patriotic immigration reform movement, to stop them. Will you join in helping us, with a tax-deductible donation?
 

History for Patriots—or Traitors?

My son recently turned nine. When he started school, in pre-K, I resolved not to fight with his teachers, until he was along a decent piece. No use confusing the child. And the public school he attends is one of the most patriotic in New York. Whereas school administrators on Manhattan’s Upper West Side would have kids sing the “Internationale” or kneel facing Mecca before they’d have them say the Pledge of Allegiance, every day at assembly at my boy’s school, they say the Pledge and sing Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America.”

But the books the children are given to read are often another story, entirely.

During the First Grade my son, then six, had a wonderful young teacher, just a couple of years out of teacher’s college. As I later told her, I was glad that she didn’t have any kids of her own yet (and, though I kept it to myself, glad that she wasn’t a party girl), because once she did, she wouldn’t be able to devote herself completely to her pupils. She smiled and nodded in agreement.

But some of the books my son was bringing home from school were abominations which had to be contradicted. One, that was assigned for class, claimed that (white) Americans, in their terrible wastefulness—in contrast to the Indians—had almost killed off the bald eagle. As if the Congresses that passed conservation laws were full of Indians! And what was the racial background of that great conservationist, Teddy Roosevelt? (I don’t know if my son’s teacher or the head of social studies assigned that book, and I’d just as soon not know.)

At about the same time, my son brought home an oversized, illustrated library book that portrayed the Indians as angels, and the white man as a cut-throat savage.

That did it. I ranted against that book to my son, and purchased the 1956 John Ford masterpiece, The Searchers, which we watched together. In that story, Indians massacre a settler family. They scalp the husband, rape and scalp the mother, murder their little daughter, and kidnap their beautiful, teenaged daughter, Debby (Natalie Wood). The husband’s brother, Ethan Edwards (John Wayne) and half-breed, adopted son, Martin Pawley (Jeffrey Hunter), set off to find Debby and bring her back. It takes years, but they rescue her.

The thing about The Searchers is that, unlike the supposedly non-fiction book my son had brought home, it was based on the true story of Cynthia Ann Parker. (Unfortunately, the Comanche had kidnapped Parker for so long—25 years—and married her off to a Comanche leader, so that when she was found, she no longer knew English, had two children, and did not want to return to her family. PC biographies now speak of her as having been “adopted” by the Comanche.)

In its Golden Age, Hollywood was never known as a reliable source of history, but those old pictures are today often more accurate than the “history” books that are foisted on our children.

I also bought my son A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus's Great Discovery to the War on Terror, by Larry Schweikart and Michael Patrick Allen, and Schweikart’s 48 Liberal Lies About American History (That You Probably Learned in School), both of which look promising so far.

I want my son to grow up loving and honoring his country, but first he’s got to have a country. If this nation’s policies—policies promoted, for different motives, by Right and Left elites alike—continue apace, not only will America soon be a nation unfit to be loved, but it won’t be a nation at all. Giving schoolchildren anti-American propaganda is meant to sap their wills, so that they won’t have the necessary desire to fight for their country that had my late Uncle Irwin Simpkins, later a mild-mannered, college librarian in civilian life, enlist in the Army for World War II, and re-up for the Korean War. (What about me, you ask? Four months after the last chopper took off from the roof of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, I turned 17 and volunteered for the Regular Army. I may have set a record for the most possible ways that a man can flunk an Army physical.)

VDARE.com does not promote itself as a history site, but its writers must often treat of historical issues, because so much of anti-American propaganda involves lying about the past, in order to conquer and enslave the American people now and in the future. And since the movement to destroy America has long employed the means of race war, it manufactures a steady stream of racist, anti-white propaganda.

And so, VDARE has run articles on the Battle of San Jacinto, Brown v. Board of Education, the life and works of Martin Luther King Jr., and even on the short, almost certainly tragic life of Virginia Dare, the inspiration for VDARE, who was likely massacred by Indians, along with the rest of the over 100 English settlers of “The Lost Colony” of Roanoke Island.

Let’s return to True Grit for a moment. The area where it was shot, in Ouray County, Colorado, already had some period buildings, such as the Ouray County Courthouse, built in 1888, and the movie crew either constructed or converted some Western buildings in the style of the period, in the towns of Ouray and Ridgway. Ridgway preserved quite a few of them. In her short documentary, True Grit: Then and Now, “JeepsterGal” will show a building or a rock in a movie scene, and then show the same landmark now, in most cases looking exactly the same, 40 years later. And the countryside in the San Juan Mountains that dominate Ouray County (542 square miles, present population, 3,800), and where most of the outdoor scenes were shot, is as spectacular now as it was then.

But imagine what the area might look like in a generation, in an America with between 500 million and one billion people. Instead of being virtually unsettled, it could have hundreds of thousands of people living in semi-attached and attached homes and apartment buildings, with the only reminders of places like Owl Creek Pass and Deb’s Meadow the street signs, strip malls, and highways named after them.

You might think that environmental groups like the Sierra Club—which until 1996 pledged its support for population stabilization—would fight to protect America’s natural treasures, but as Brenda Walker’s VDARE exposés revealed, the Sierra Club was bought off for $100 million by hedge fund entrepreneur and Open Borders fanatic, David Gelbaum.

The fox is guarding the henhouse.

 
No Americans Welcome!

Someone might counter, “Well, at least we’ve still got our national parks!”

Not really. As Brenda Walker has also detailed in reports over the years, America’s most beautiful national parks have for over ten years increasingly been stolen and plundered by illegal Mexican immigrant drug gangs, the franchisees in El Norte of Mexico’s narcoterrorists, who have taken over large swathes of the parks for the cultivation of marijuana, and turned them into no-go zones for the Americans who pay for their upkeep, and who are their owners. But in addition to stealing our parks, the harm spreads to ten times the area actually cultivated:

These Mexican marijuana messes are an ecological disaster. They are not innocent little plots that leave a minimal footprint. They are industrial grow sites, toxic stews where the gangsters use dangerous and illegal chemical herbicides, pesticides and growth hormones that result in long-lasting environmental damage.

When Americans, the owners of those national parks, visit them, they increasingly take their lives in their hands. As Brenda just reported today, two campers in Santa Barbara’s Aliso Park area, west of New Cuyama, barely escaped an April 17 encounter with alleged narcoterrorists with their lives. (Aren’t we always hearing that drug offenders are non-violent?!) The campers stumbled onto a marijuana patch being tended by two “immigrants.” When the “immigrants,” who spoke only Spanish, gestured to the campers to wait for “Boss,” the campers fled in their vehicle. They barely escaped a chase by two men in a truck equipped with five high-powered rifles. Police went back to the crime scene, and arrested the men in the truck.

Local parks are also being stolen and destroyed. In 2007, VDARE’s Steve Sailer observed Los Angeles’ “public” Hansen Dam Park, which had been seized from the American taxpayers, and privatized by illegal aliens from Mexico, who made no tax contribution to its support, and who wrecked it. They buried the grass in garbage and excrement, set fires that caused massive damage, brought in horses that were illegal, unhealthy, and extremely dangerous, in an area jammed with families and many small children, for an illegal trade selling rides for kids.

Where were the police, you ask? In his pioneering, postmodern/New Age/PC management style mixing sanctuary policy and de-policing, LAPD Chief William Bratton had long ago ordered the police to surrender most public space to the criminal invaders. Bratton, a Boston-born and raised carpetbagger himself, had earlier announced that if any native Los Angelenos didn’t like illegal immigration, they should leave the state. And millions of native Californians, including VDARE’s own Joe Guzzardi, have called Bratton’s bluff!

Meanwhile, that man presently occupying the White House just announced that he will seek to pass an illegal immigrant amnesty in his first year in office, just as I predicted he would in February.

America is currently well on the way to the worst economic depression in her history, with 6.14 million jobless workers receiving unemployment benefits, millions more having exhausted their benefits (and no longer being counted by official unemployment figures), additional millions underemployed, and millions more soon to lose their jobs, at a current rate of over 600,000 per month. Not only would a chief executive seeking to bring about an economic recovery never dream of pushing for a mass amnesty, but he would be undertaking accelerated mass deportations, so as to rid America of the multibillion-dollar welfare, education, and criminal justice costs that illegals incur, and to put an end to their stealing of jobs from American citizens and legal immigrants alike. Instead, that man wants to amnesty over 22 million illegal aliens?! And just who will pay for these illegals? If he gets his way, you and I will. In perpetuity.

Of course, the amnestisiacs are lowballing the numbers, claiming that only 12 million illegals are in play. Only. They always lowball the numbers and the costs.

The real numbers are closer to 30 million illegals, because the over 22 million I cited above have several million illegal children who were born here, and whom a rogue federal judiciary has redefined from illegal immigrants (per the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment), to native-born American citizens.

But for the Usurper-in-Chief, an illegal alien amnesty is only the beginning.

In a 2007 interview, “Obama” told NPR’s Farai Chideya that as far as he is concerned, any immigrant who is a descendant of slaves or who came from anyplace in the world that had ever been under colonial rule has an eternal and unlimited claim against America (though not in exactly those words), which to him means white Americans.

“I mean, you know, black people didn't end up in the Caribbean by taking a yacht there. They came on slave ships. Back in Africa, my grandfather was a cook for the British army and suffered under the colonialism there.”

Never mind that colonial rule was often the only bright spot in such misbegotten nations’ history. Never mind that in Kenya, “Obama’s” paternal grandfather benefited tremendously from colonialism. “Obama” has instead fabricated a bizarro universe history, in which his grandfather “suffered” under colonialism.

Look for “Obama” to seek to airlift in millions of sub-Saharan African “refugees,” the lower their IQs—the average in black Africa is 67 or 70, depending on whose research you read—and the less suited for modern life, the better.

What is his goal? In his autobiography, Dreams from My Father, “Obama” says that his father’s dreams are his dreams. Fortunately for us, his father had clearly detailed his dreams in 1965, in an academic paper entitled, “Problems Facing Our Socialism.”

Barack Obama Sr. expressed his rage at seeing that virtually all private property in Kenya was owned by whites and Asians (Indians). His solution: Use the government to steal every last inch of it from them. The elder Obama also suggested possibly levying a tax rate of 100 percent—a rate of confiscation twice as bad as under American chattel slavery—as a realistic option.

Such a mad plan might make a sort of sense coming from a racist, petulant child lacking the slightest grasp of economics, but Obama Sr. had a master’s degree in economics from Harvard! (How did he ever manage that?)

Obama Sr. does at one point acknowledge that seizing the businesses of experienced, capable white and Asian businessmen, and turning them over to black men lacking both in business experience and aptitude might not be economically fruitful, but emphasizes that he doesn’t care. The elder Obama was motivated purely by the politics of hate, and that is the motive now in charge in the Oval Office.



VDARE.com was founded at Christmastime 1999, by that wandering Englishman, Peter Brimelow. Peter had seen socialism and mass immigration destroy his native land, and bilingualism and biculturalism slowly destroying Canada. Peter fell in love with America, became a naturalized citizen, and didn’t want to see her destroyed, too.

Peter may not be riding a horse with the reins in his teeth, guns ablaze, and he’s not a drunk. But he’s a real man, not a movie character.

Actually, if you’re old enough to recall a kinder, gentler time when academics were scholars, rather than self-styled community organizers, Peter gives the impression, in person, of an absent-minded professor. But impressions aside, I think he has grit. And there’s no man whom I would rather have my back in a barfight.

More to the point, unlike Rooster Cogburn, Peter can’t hold up a federal paymaster or a bank, whenever he needs a “road stake” for VDARE. He needs your help. Please give generously to VDARE.
I realize that times are hard. But they’re going to get harder. I’ve written at least 11 previous fundraising appeals for VDARE, without ever employing such dramatic language, but if we can’t fight off this next amnesty push… I’ll leave the future to your imagination.

Spoiler alert: The last four minutes of the 11:32 video that follows show the movie’s climactic gunfight and fadeout. If you’ve yet to see True Grit, you might want to pass on seeing those scenes just now.

But whether or not you watch the documentary, you should first mosey on down to VDARE.com’s donation page here, to make a tax-deductible donation to The VDARE Foundation, the 501(c)(3) non-profit that operates VDARE. Thank you for your generous support.

“The Immigration Encyclopedia” Needs Your Support


(Originally published on December 18, 2007, back when Mike Huckabee was known simply as a folksy, Evangelical former governor of Arkansas who had lost a ton of weight.)

Bewildered former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, recently told the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza that everywhere he goes, voters’ number one concern is immigration.

It does appear to be the issue out here wherever we are. Nobody’s asked about Iraq—doesn’t ever come up. The first question out of the box, everywhere I go—Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, it doesn’t matter—is immigration. It’s just red hot, and I don’t fully understand it.

Welcome to America, Mike!

Here’s the problem. With the help of the MSM, Huckabee has conned millions of voters into thinking that he supports enforcing America’s immigration laws, when in fact he is a confirmed supporter of abolishing America through open borders.

What if I told you that there is an online encyclopedia—though its editor/publisher doesn’t use that term—devoted (though not limited) to immigration, which is vastly superior in factual reliability (unlike the New York Times, it has its own house fact-checker) to any daily newspaper, but which at the same time has more scholarly rigor than you’ll find (with the notable exception of immigration economist George Borjas) from tenured professors? And what if I told you it has an archive of eight years’ worth of thousands of such articles? And what if I told you it’s free?

Readers of The Immigration Encyclopedia know all about Mike Huckabee’s chameleon routine, because TIE’s dogged researcher-writers have scrutinized the Governor every step of the way.

Keeping track of presidential aspirants’ flip-flops is just one of the many services that TIE provides on a daily basis through its articles and blogs.

And while it costs nothing to read TIE, it does cost money to produce and maintain it. Not just due to Web servers and bandwidth, but because TIE pays its writers and its fact-checker, which is how it can provide you such top-notch reporting, scholarship, and commentary. (Full disclosure: I am proud to say that I am one of those writers.)

The site isn’t actually known as The Immigration Encyclopedia. I gave it that title, because it is the most encyclopedic source on legal and illegal immigration into America on the Web, and to mock a certain pretend Web encyclopedia that has just collected so many millions of dollars in donations that it is embarrassed to even cite the figures. The pretend encyclopedia pays contributors nothing, and nothing is what it provides—but at a cost of millions! By contrast, The Immigration Encyclopedia is a priceless resource that is run for mere tens of thousands of dollars per year in tax-deductible donations. But that relatively small sum is essential.

TIE’s official name is VDARE.com. The reason I didn’t name it earlier was to be coy, to stress what I believe is VDARE’s true character, and to fool Google. Since this is my third fundraising post this month, had I stated its purpose at the top, Google’s blogsearch would have seen this as a repetitious post, and not listed it.

Please hit this link to support VDARE with a tax-deductible donation. (Did I mention that your contribution is tax-deductible?)

Thank you.

With best holiday wishes,

How the Knoxville Horror Trials Stand

By Nicholas Stix
Updated on Thursday, December 17, 2009, at 10:22 a.m.

In the Knoxville Horror case of the January 6-7, 2007 carjacking, kidnapping, beating, gang-rape, torture and murders of white Knoxville, Tennessee couple Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23, by at least four blacks, and at least two other unknown men, four trials have so far been held (including that of a seventh figure, a black accessory), with one more trial scheduled.

In a federal trial (because the charge was related to carjacking, a federal offense), career stick-up man Eric “E” Boyd was convicted in April, 2008, and in October, 2008, sentenced to the maximum punishment of 18 years in prison, as an accessory after the fact to carjacking, for hiding then-fugitive Lemaricus “Slim” Davidson.

In August, in the first KH state murder trial, Davidson’s half-brother, Letalvis “Rome” Cobbins, was convicted on 33 out of 38counts, and almost all major charges, including murder, rape, and kidnapping, and sentenced to “life without parole” (“LWOP”; read: “life until parole.”)

In October, “ringleader” Davidson was convicted on 33 of 38 counts, including all major charges, and sentenced to death.

In the just concluded murder trial of George Geovonni “Detroit” Thomas, Thomas was convicted on all 46 counts, and sentenced to LWOP.

At least two unidentified accomplices participated in the gang-rape, beating, torture and murders.

Their DNA was found in sperm on and in Channon Christian’s underwear, and did not match the DNA of any other defendants, or that of her gang-raped, murdered boyfriend.

Several other friends of the convicted killers have admitted under oath to having helped them escape arrest immediately after the murders, but have not been charged as accessories.

The last state murder trial scheduled, that of Vanessa Coleman, Cobbins’ girlfriend, who admitted to being present in the murder house at 2316 Chipman Street while the male convicts committed the atrocities, is in jeopardy, as today’s update from my reader-researcher David in Tennessee, and the linked Knoxville News Sentinel article by Jamie Satterfield show.

Nicholas,

Here is the latest on Vanessa Coleman. Those who have looked at the whole scenario believe that Coleman is the one who beat Channon in her private parts. I think the state prosecutors didn't pursue an immunity deal because they are certain that Coleman took part in the torture. She wouldn't have been a good witness for the prosecution anyway.

In short, Vanessa Coleman couldn't play the Linda Kasabian role. In the major Manson trial prosecuted by Vince Bugliosi, Kasabian testified against Manson, Krenwinkel, Atkins, Van Houten, and later Tex Watson (in a separate trial).

When this affair started the excuses for not giving it wide coverage were these. It's a brutal murder but there will be more brutal murders, so it's no story. Second, the suspects have been arrested, no story. Third, the suspects will be convicted and probably sentenced to death, no story. It was just another crime, no story. After nearly three years, this is not how it has turned out.

In the first three trials, only one suspect received the death sentence. A jury was bused from Nashville, a very different place from Knoxville, declared "mitigation" and refused a death sentence in the first trial. Even the Tru TV defense attorney commentators were shocked that Cobbins didn't receive death. Each trial was fiercely contested by the defense, unlike the predictions. The victims were smeared as druggies in Davidson's trial. The defense claimed that Channon had "consensual sex" with him.

If the Davidson trial had received the national coverage Casey Anthony has gotten, more attention would have been paid by the public than any trial since O.J. Simpson. No story indeed.

Regards,

David

Dear David,

Thanks for the update. I just read the article whose link you sent. Prosecutors commonly refer to suspects as "witnesses," when they are seeking to sucker them into incriminating themselves. But this is a bridge too far entirely.

However, the prosecutors do have a leg to stand on, and that leg is "dual sovereignty theory." It's a miserable leg, too, because it is the unconstitutional basis for federal hate crime laws, but if the courts will permit as a basis for prosecuting whites for so-called hate crimes, they must permit it for federally prosecuting blacks, too, and for state prosecutions where federal immunity deals have been made, as in the instant case.

I had had no idea that Coleman had participated in the torture, but reading her police statement was still surreal (videos I, II, and III). She denied hearing any screams coming from the doorless room where they (and allegedly, she) were raping, beating, and torturing Channon. And the next morning, by her own admission, she cooked the rapist-torturer-murderers a hearty breakfast.

Your deadpan dissection of the expediently changing anti-coverage propaganda is dead-on. Some lefties vociferously insist that the problem with the media is that they are only focused on ratings and circulation, but if that were so, we'd be getting 24/7 coverage of this crime, and others like it. Newspapers would rather go out of business, than cover such popular stories.

Regards,

Nicholas

A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste: The Charles Krauthammer Story

By Nicholas Stix

In the matter of syndicated Republican columnist Charles Krauthammer, my friend Mike Berman forwarded me the enclosed, gushing observations by a Krauthammer fanatic, a gushing tribute from a second Kraut fanatic, Mike’s own, sober appraisal of Kraut, and a blog by traditionalist conservative Larry Auster. My response follows at the conclusion.

Summary by an anonymous Kraut fanatic:

It's better to be paralyzed from the neck down, than to be paralyzed from the neck up...

Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News. He is an M.D. and a lawyer and is paralyzed from the neck down. A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children.

Last Monday was a profound evening, Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views. He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.
The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally.
Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free.

Summary of his comments:
1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions.. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time.

2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES!

3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along.
He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada.

4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in Canada. God forbid!

5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

6. Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States, but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their
agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

7. He is now handing out goodies. He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future. He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong. Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party. Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage. Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future. We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state's rights.

9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don't have. This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity. The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda. But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package. These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

11. In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power. If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll. If it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's
happening in Washington and Congress.. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.

Do yourself a long term favor, send this to all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big picture. All our futures and children's futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!


Second Kraut fanatic, Lillian M. Lewis:

Nothing more needs to be said! Dr. Krauthammer's analysis is 100% correct!


Mike Berman:

Obama never could have been elected if we didn't allow the country to be filled with Third-Worlders. In the decade I was born NYC's population was 93% white. Now it's 35%. The entire country is following a similar trend. Whites have not voted Democrat in a national election since LBJ in "64. We gave the country away to others who resent us and who want to take what we have because they don't have the ability to make it on their own. That's the true "big picture" and you won't ever hear it from Charles Krauthammer.


Larry Auster:

Berman: Here's a much better piece by neocon Krauthammer:
CONTRA GLOBAL COMMUNITY ORGANIZING

Charles Krauthammer says (I've said the same) that the aim of the global anti-global warming movement is a massive transfer of wealth from the West to the non-West. He says that saving the environment is the new pretext for global socialism. And this, by the way, is the first time I've ever seen a neocon speak of "global socialism." As a general matter, neocons never criticize UN-style globalism in and of itself. They only criticize the UN when it gets in the way of neocon plans for U.S.-led globalism or when it gangs up on Israel. But now, with this vast alliance of Western leftists and Third Worlders seeking to work this massive expropriation of the West's wealth under the rubric of saving the planet, neocons are perhaps starting to wake up to the threat.

The Environmental Shakedown
By Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON--In the 1970s and early '80s, having seized control of the U.N. apparatus (by power of numbers), Third World countries decided to cash in. OPEC was pulling off the greatest wealth transfer from rich to poor in history. Why not them? So in grand U.N. declarations and conferences, they began calling for a "New International Economic Order." The NIEO's essential demand was simple: to transfer fantastic chunks of wealth from the industrialized West to the Third World.

On what grounds? In the name of equality--wealth redistribution via global socialism--with a dose of post-colonial reparations thrown in.

The idea of essentially taxing hard-working citizens of the democracies in order to fill the treasuries of Third World kleptocracies went nowhere, thanks mainly to Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher (and the debt crisis of the early '80s). They put a stake through the enterprise.

But such dreams never die. The raid on the Western treasuries is on again, but today with a new rationale to fit current ideological fashion. With socialism dead, the gigantic heist is now proposed as a sacred service of the newest religion: environmentalism.

One of the major goals of the Copenhagen climate summit is another NIEO shakedown: the transfer of hundreds of billions from the industrial West to the Third World to save the planet by, for example, planting green industries in the tristes tropiques.
Politically it's an idea of genius, engaging at once every left-wing erogenous zone: rich man's guilt, post-colonial guilt, environmental guilt. But the idea of shaking down the industrial democracies in the name of the environment thrives not just in the refined internationalist precincts of Copenhagen. It thrives on the national scale too.

On the day Copenhagen opened, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency claimed jurisdiction over the regulation of carbon emissions by declaring them an "endangerment" to human health.

Since we operate an overwhelmingly carbon-based economy, the EPA will be regulating practically everything. No institution that emits more than 250 tons of CO2 a year will fall outside EPA control. This means over a million building complexes, hospitals, plants, schools, businesses and similar enterprises. (The EPA proposes regulating emissions only above 25,000 tons, but it has no such authority.) Not since the creation of the Internal Revenue Service has a federal agency been given more intrusive power over every aspect of economic life.

This naked assertion of vast executive power in the name of the environment is the perfect fulfillment of the prediction of Czech President (and economist) Vaclav Klaus that environmentalism is becoming the new socialism, i.e., the totemic ideal in the name of which government seizes the commanding heights of the economy and society.

Socialism having failed so spectacularly, the left was adrift until it struck upon a brilliant gambit: metamorphosis from red to green. The cultural elites went straight from the memorial service for socialism to the altar of the environment. The objective is the same: highly centralized power given to the best and the brightest, the new class of experts, managers and technocrats. This time, however, the alleged justification is not abolishing oppression and inequality but saving the planet.
Not everyone is pleased with the coming New Carbon-Free International Order. When the Obama administration signaled (in a gesture to Copenhagen) a U.S. commitment to major cuts in carbon emissions, Democratic Sen. Jim Webb wrote the president protesting that he lacks the authority to do so unilaterally. That requires congressional concurrence by legislation or treaty.

With the Senate blocking President Obama's cap-and-trade carbon legislation, the EPA coup d'etat served as the administration's loud response to Webb: The hell we can't. With this EPA "endangerment" finding, we can do as we wish with carbon. Either the Senate passes cap-and-trade, or the EPA will impose even more draconian measures: all cap, no trade.

Forget for a moment the economic effects of severe carbon chastity. There's the matter of constitutional decency. If you want to revolutionize society--as will drastic carbon regulation and taxation in an energy economy that is 85 percent carbon-based--you do it through Congress reflecting popular will. Not by administrative fiat of EPA bureaucrats.

Congress should not just resist this executive overreaching, but trump it: Amend existing clean air laws and restore their original intent by excluding CO2 from EPA control and reserving that power for Congress and future legislation.
Do it now. Do it soon. Because Big Brother isn't lurking in CIA cloak. He's knocking on your door, smiling under an EPA cap.

Stix:

I find Charlie Kraut underwhelming, as I do the sycophantic summary of his talk from the first Kraut fanatic. Some of his points are valid, but they were made by others, including yours truly, years before he did. And even when his truth quotient is highest, he waters down what he is willing to say, and puts things in a false historical context. He is concerned with appearing erudite and respectable, rather than in dealing in what is true and right.

His refusal to deal honestly with race, immigration, and I.Q. make him less valuable than a blank column in a newspaper. An honest person will immediately see through the racial socialists’ transparent lies, but may be deceived by a Krauthammer.

“Socialism having failed so spectacularly, the left was adrift until it struck upon a brilliant gambit: metamorphosis from red to green. The cultural elites went straight from the memorial service for socialism to the altar of the environment. The objective is the same: highly centralized power given to the best and the brightest, the new class of experts, managers and technocrats. This time, however, the alleged justification is not abolishing oppression and inequality but saving the planet.”

“The left was adrift”? In which alternate universe? American communists have given us the so-called civil rights movement, feminism, environmentalism, Hispanic nationalism… Have I forgotten anything?

Long before the Communist border guards held their fire on November 8, 1989, and let West and East German kids take the Berlin Wall apart, America’s neocons had declared victory over domestic communism, and surrendered.

“Mr. Obama is a very intellectual…”

The hell, he is!

“He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society….”

No, he wants to punish whites.

“4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus…. Paying for FREE college education is his goal.”

Wrong again. He wants to control every branch of the economy, and everything else, too. He doesn’t want to pay for “FREE college education,” he wants whites to pay for free college for blacks and Hispanics.

“Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution.”

No, he’s a devotee of Black Liberation Theology, which makes him a genocidal black supremacist.

“He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors. This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!”

Not only does “Obama” not see “moral equivalency in all cultures,” but Kraut’s next sentence contradicts his “moral equivalency” talking point. “Obama” hates all white nations, and loves the most dysfunctional, tyrannical, racist black and Hispanic nations (e.g., Zimbabwe, South Africa, Venezuela). Since Kraut is too timid to go where the facts and logic lead him, he must twist them to remain within pre-set parameters. That’s what comes of self-censorship.

“He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future.”

He doesn’t plan on having a successor, except possibly for his widow or children.

“Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party.”

Pawlenty is a non-starter, and Sarah Palin has practically declared herself to not be presidential timber. As for Romney, I probably would have voted for him in the general election, had the Evangelicals not screwed him, on behalf of Gov. Clemency.

“Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage.”

Newt Gingrich is brilliant?! That’s a misquote, right? (Granted, he may have some pretty good ghostwriters but then, so does Sarah Palin.) In addition, Gingrich has all the steadfastness of a weather vane.

I saw nothing at all wrong with Bobby Jindal’s folksy February speech, but for some reason, the RNC decided that it stunk (or at least to say that it did), and Kraut is following his marching orders.

The problems with Jindal are two: 1. He’s a neocon, and thus not tough enough to do what must be done; and 2. Making a non-white the face of the GOP would hasten the displacement of the historic American people, the alienation of white potential GOP voters, and thus the demise of the Republican Party.

Given a free hand to cut costs and reorganize departments, a Secretary Jindal could be the greatest thing in the history of HHS/HEW, but not as President.

“10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed…The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally. Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.”

The foregoing claims are dangerously dishonest. In spite of “Obama’s” many alleged electoral crimes and media accomplices, any Republican who had fought for the presidency would have won the election. The problem is, John McCain was a coward who wouldn’t fight. Heck, to borrow from Mike Berman, had the country not been swamped with racist Third Worlders, McCain still would have won the election, without fighting for it.

“It will all be about the economy. I hope this gets you really thinking about what's
happening in Washington and Congress.. There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance. The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.”

No, there’s a racial revolution going on. Daily we are confronted with new atrocities. Krauthammer wants to put us to work serving the GOP, which bears much of the responsibility for the state we’re in.

Krauthammer isn’t looking for another Ronald Reagan, he’s looking for another John McCain.
