New York City’s ABC Eyewitness News Hearts Colored Cut-Throats!

By Nicholas Stix

I was watching the Channel 7 News a few minutes ago, and news reader Joe Torres, whom I believe has worked for the station for over 20 years, read reports on two shootings that left multiple victims gravely wounded.

One shooting, on Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City, New Jersey, left two victims shot. The other shooting, in East Flatbush Brooklyn, left multiple victims shot.

In both cases, Torres, as ABC Eyewitness News’ representative, reported that the shooters were still at large, but refused to tell us anything about them, not even the color of clothes they were wearing.

That tells us that the shooters are either black (certainly, in the East Flatbush shooting) or Hispanic (possibly, in the Jersey City case).

Lying, racist, Marxists would assert that because Torres didn’t report the victims’ description of the shooters, we can’t assume anything. Garbage. If any of the shooters had been white, he would have immediately said so, just as media gangs immediately told us that the Annapolis newsroom mass murderer was “white.”

ABC Eyewitness News is thus an accomplice to the shooters.

TCM's Film Noir of the Week for Saturday Night-Sunday Morning at Midnight ET is Armored Car Robbery (1950), starring Charles McGraw and William Talman.
 

Charles McGraw, left, as LAPD lieutenant seeking to avenge his friend's murder
 

Richard Fleischer directs—as usual, he gets a lot of plot in a 67-minute film.
 

 

McGraw is the detective. Talman plays a vicious killer, who plans the heist with low-level crooks Steve Brodie, Gene Evans, and Douglas Fowley. Adele Jergens is the stripper femme fatale two-timing the sap played by Fowley with Talman.
 

The LAPD's communications center, back when the force was run by the legendary Bill Parker. After Parker's death on the job in 1966, LAPD headquarters was renamed "Parker Center." We'll have to see how much longer that lasts.
 

A lot of location filming showing Los Angeles circa 1950.
 

 

It repeats on TCM Sunday morning, July 1, at 10 a.m. ET.

N.S.: Armored Car Robbery; that’s a really imaginative title. So many of these crime thriller B pictures had names like that: Crime Wave, Mystery Street, etc.

 

Talman and Douglas Fowley
 

Red Eddie Muller has had to conscript more and more crime, message (e.g., Crossfire), and even Bette Davis (The Letter and Joan Crawford (Mildred Pierce) pictures as films noir, in order to give himself remunerative work, and to promote Communism.
 


 



Commissars Unperson Laura Ingalls Wilder, While Defaming Her, for Not Speaking Like a 21th Century Communist

 

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957), above, and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane (1886-1968), below, circa 1908

 

By Nicholas Stix

The thing reproduced below, by media gang member, Tanya Edwards, is a reportorial, i.e., an editorial masquerading as a news report.

Edwards’ assertion, “Her most famous novel, Little House on the Prairie (1935), has inspired almost as much disapproval as devotion,” is a bald-faced lie. If it were true, the librarians would never have named “a major children’s book award” after her, and her stories would not have been taught in elementary schools nationwide, and sold in their bookstores. We have all the Little House books, because I bought them for my boy in his school’s bookstore, circa 2006, and he loved them.

Edwards violated the First Law of Lying: Plausibility.

Edwards also lied about Wilders’ use of Phil Sheridan’s phrase. Here’s the context:

“‘The only good Indian is a dead Indian,’ Mr. Scott said. Pa said he didn't know about that. He figured that Indians would be as peaceable as anybody else if they were let alone.”
Note that it would bother me, either way.

The reason Edwards lied is easy to figure out. She wants schools to cease teaching and selling Wilder’s stories, and to replace her name on the award and in classrooms and bookstores with the name of some talentless, colored person. And the ALA has long been red.

The movement to remove all whites’ names off of awards, streets, etc., and replace them with the names of colored people, is nothing less than a campaign of genocide.

The ironic aspect of all this is that my understanding is that the true author of the Little House books was Wilder’s daughter, libertarian economist Rose Wilder Lane (1886-1968), who wrote down the stories her mother had told her during her childhood.
 

Laura Ingalls Wilder's name removed from award over racism concerns
By Tanya Edwards

Yahoo Lifestyle

The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, made the unanimous decision to remove the name of author Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award at a meeting in New Orleans on Saturday.
 

The Little House books
 

The name of the prize has been changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award, the Guardian reports.

The association, which took the vote at its board meeting in New Orleans, said the vote “was greeted by a standing ovation by the audience in attendance,”
Fox News reports.

Wilder is best known for her beloved Little House on the Prairie novels, which the ALSC has stated “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values” based on Wilder’s portrayal of black people and Native Americans.

The first award was given to Wilder in 1954. The ALSC, which is based in Chicago, says her work continues to be published and read but her “legacy is complex” and “not universally embraced.”

[Stupid. “Complex,” as used by racial socialists, is stupid garbage. But then, so is all language, as used by them. Which leads to the second stupid, garbage phrase: “Not universally embraced.” Whose writing is “universally embraced”?

That was a rhetorical question.]

In February, the ALA announced that it was reconsidering the name of the Wilder Award. At the time, the ALA declared that her legacy put the group in the position of serving children’s reading and education while being unable to model values of “inclusiveness, integrity and respect.” Wilder’s books, it stated, “reflect racist and anti-Native sentiments and are not universally embraced.”

[“Reconsidering” was code for they’d already made their decision, but were waiting to announce it.]

Wilder was born in 1867 and died in 1957. Her most famous novel, Little House on the Prairie (1935), has inspired almost as much disapproval as devotion. The novel has racist elements, and its portrayal of Native Americans has had consequences when read uncritically in schools. In the late 1990s, scholar [sic] Waziyatawin Angela Cavender Wilson approached the Yellow Medicine East School District after her daughter came home crying because of a line in the book, first attributed to Gen. Philip Sheridan but a common saying by that time: “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.”

[When white children go home crying, because their race was deliberately defamed in school, nobody gives them a moment's concern.]

However, in her own lifetime Wilder apologized for some of her thoughtlessness, and amended a line in Little House that read Kansas had “no people, only Indians.” It now reads, “no settlers, only Indians.”

[The Indians thought in the same terms. And how does an idiot like Tanya Edwards get to call anyone “thoughtless”?]

Angela Merkel, Communism, and “Hitler’s Revenge”

Nicholas Stix: Is the Final Solution to the German Question at Hand?
By
Nicholas Stix
November 3, 2017, 04:47 P.M.
VDARE

I don’t talk about this much, but as an American Jew, I have a dual loyalty problem. Is my loyalty to America first, or to…Germany?

I studied and worked in West Germany for over five years, from August 1, 1980 to August 26, 1985.

Shortly after my arrival, friends studying German with me laughed at my unintelligible attempts at the new tongue. But after about two years, I spoke and wrote as a native. Germans I’d just met figured I’d been born in West Germany, just not in their region.

I fell in love with the German language, and with one West German lady, and will be forever grateful to my West German friends for their hospitality, and to the West German taxpayers for subsidizing my education.

My brilliant, West German girlfriend, born in 1957, had grown up poor. (She majored in theoretical physics and pure math.)

E.’s parents had been sharecroppers, though the term didn’t exist in German. Eventually, her father, Alois, went to work in a factory, which paid much better. Her mother, Ingrid, sometimes worked as a cook at a neighboring animal park.

Both parents had grown up on longtime family farms in German areas outside Germany’s borders—Alois was from the kingdom of Böhmen (Bohemia), while Ingrid was from Oberschlesien (Upper Silesia). Both had been enthusiastic Nazis during the war.



When the war ended, Soviet troops ordered all Germans in the external territories to pack only what would fit into a rucksack, and leave on the next train for West Germany, where they were dubbed Rucksackdeutschen (“rucksack Germans”) and Heimatsvetriebenen (those driven from their homes).

Another lady, a beautiful blonde of a certain age, who worked an information stand in the university library, told me of how her family and hundreds of thousands of Germans had fled Prussia across the frozen Baltic Sea during the winter of 1945 to surrender to the Americans, rather than face mass rape and murder from the Russians, as revenge for the Germans’ own war of annihilation.

Thousands died of exhaustion. Many children froze to death.

The Soviets gave East Prussia to Poland.

The Heimatsvertriebenen formed fraternal organizations, which met frequently for Sonntagsreden (Sunday speeches) by prominent conservative politicians, like West German President Karl Carstens, a notorious, old Nazi (weren’t they all?), who would call for re-unification. Few people, including yours truly or E., who was cynical in matters of politics and religion, took the speeches seriously. But her father Alois believed.

When “Die Mauer” (the Berlin Wall) fell, on November 8/9 1989, followed by the ensuing deutsche Wiedervereinigung (re-unification of West and East Germany) on October 3, 1990, I was overjoyed for my German friends.

Unfortunately, Alois never got to celebrate. He’d died in 1985, short of 60.

It may have been a political miracle, but political miracles can be rationally explained, and may have horrific consequences.

Most unfortunate of all, re-unification gave us the monstrosity of Angela Merkel.

Since 2015, with the rest of the world, I have watched Merkel undertake the democide of Germany—part of the genocide of the white race, the ultimate end of what VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow has famously called “Hitler’s revenge.”

The late Lawrence Auster (via Diana West), born a Jew, expanded on Peter’s notion thusly:

Having defined the ultimate evil of Nazism, not as the ultimate violation of the moral law as traditionally understood, but as the violation of liberal tolerance, postwar liberalism then set about dismantling all the existing ordinary particularisms of our own society (including, in the case of the EU, nationhood itself) in the name of preventing a resurgence of Nazi-like evil. This was the birth of political correctness, which sees any failure on our part to be completely open to and accepting of the Other—and thus any normal attachment to our own ways and our own society—as the equivalent of Nazism. [Victor Hanson—liberal universalist with a gun by Lawrence Auster, View from the Right, April 30, 2004.]
When Ike led the U.S. Army in liberating the Nazi death camps, he realized that one day, some people would deny that the Nazis had ever carried out the Holocaust. And so, under the occupation, West German school children were forced to watch films made by our G.I.s showing the mountains of Jewish corpses and skeletons that they’d found.

The problem was that this child abuse never ended.

That such never-ending anti-nationalism served the purposes of Socialists and Communists was no accident.

The 1981 movie Die Bleierne Zeit (The Leaden Era – released in English as Marianne & Juliane), by Margarethe von Trotta, a Marxist aristocrat, was about two sisters, one of whom becomes one of the leaders of the Communist terror cell, the Bader-Meinhof Gang.

Forced to watch the liberation films as schoolgirls, the sisters (or at least one of them) vomit outside of their school.

My West German girlfriend confirmed that she had had to watch the same liberation film in school. And she, too, had vomited.

The picture exploited the memory of Nazism, in order to rationalize Communist terror in the present, as if the murderous red terrorists were preventing a return of Nazism.

With no nationalistic push-back, and the government lavishly funding anti-nationalist propagandists, Germany has drifted ever further into anti-nationalism.

An earlier final solution: In August 1944, FDR’s Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau came up with a “Suggested Post-Surrender Program for Germany,” better known as the “Morgenthau Plan.”

The Plan would have, through permanent de-industrialization, reduced the remains of Germany to a big dairy farm. His plan would only have resulted in the starvation of some 40% of the German populace! (Notoriously anti-white (and anti-working-class Jew) Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau is Henry’s son; it’s congenital.)

Roosevelt, who shared Morgenthau’s hatred of the Germans, revealed a soft spot, writing to Secretary of War Henry Stimson,

It is of the utmost importance that every person in Germany should realize that this time Germany is a defeated nation. I do not want them to starve to death but, as an example, if they need food to keep body and soul together beyond what they have, they should be fed three times a day with soup from Army soup kitchens. That will keep them perfectly healthy and they will remember that experience all their lives. [Memorandum by President Roosevelt to the Secretary of War, August 26, 1944, Foreign Relations of the United States: Diplomatic Papers, 1944, General, Volume I.]
The Morgenthau Plan was only scrapped after it proved to be the greatest imaginable propaganda weapon for Hitler, rousing Germans to fight even more tenaciously, and also aroused outrage at home.


(Lest we forget, it was not Morgenthau and Roosevelt who had opened this Pandora’s Box. And Hitler had not only sought to annihilate all of European Jewry, but the Poles and other Slavs as well. [See Joseph Bendersky’s A History of Nazi Germany.])

But instead of killing off our vanquished German enemies, Harry Truman and George Marshall saved them, via the Marshall Plan.

During the 1950s, the Germans experienced what came to be known as the Wirtschaftswunder, the economic miracle, under Finance Minister and later Chancellor Ludwig Erhard.

The West German government signed labor treaties with European countries (Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy and Portugal) to come as Gastarbeiter (guest workers), and signed a treaty with Turkey in 1961.

Erhard’s socialist successor, Helmut Schmidt, later charged that the former had brought in so much foreign labor, in part, to keep wages down. [Turkish workers a mistake, claims Schmidt, by Hannah Cleaver, Telegraph,  November 25, 2004]

Other German critics hold that there was never any need for the Turks, whose own government had pushed for the treaty, in order to help its own economy. (Sound familiar?)

German political leaders made no provision for ridding themselves of the Turks once the “miracle” ended, repeatedly relaxed the Turks’ legal conditions, and in the 1970s permitted the Turks become naturalized citizens.


During the 1970s, the Turkish presence could be debated. But with time and their demographic growth, a taboo was institutionalized, forbidding honest public discussion of the problems caused by a large population who were Moslem, low I.Q., had much higher crime rates than ethnic Germans, created no-go zones, had a high birth rate, were an economic burden, who destroyed Germany’s meritocracy, and who are completely incompatible with German culture—while Germans had a birth rate way below the replacement level of 2.1 children per woman.

Finally, in 2010, Socialist politician Thilo Sarrazin (right) published a study which showed Germany’s decline, including the problems Moslems were causing, Deutschland Schafft sich ab: Wie Wir Unser Land aufs Spiel Setzen (Germany Destroys Itself: How We Gamble with Our Country). By then, Moslems comprised 6% of the populace—and 10% of newborn babies in Germany.

Sarrazin’s book was an immediate bestseller—and yet, if the media and academia were any indication, nobody ever bought it. It was roundly condemned as “Fascist.”



Sarrazin’s book has never been translated into English
.

And the Turks were angels compared to the Moslems who have subsequently invaded Germany.

In 2015, Christian-Democrat Chancellor Angela Merkel decided, in a conspiracy with other powers within and without the country, to end Germany. Sheopened its gates to millions of Moslem fake “refugees” (not that real refugees would have been any better), military-aged men who came with smartphones that some entity, whom the media refused to name, had paid for, along with their usage.

Real refugees would have been overwhelmingly women and children, but this wave of “refugees,” who came to be known as “rapefugees” based on their behavior in Germany, consisted at least 70% of men. They immediately engaged in a crime wave, especially the massive rape and sexual molestation of German girls and women. It was a conscious, invading army.

The German authorities responded with de-policing, lies, and persecution of Germans who complained about what was happening. The German media alternately refused to report on the new reality, or lied about it.

A new law makes it illegal to report on or complain about the new reality via social media. It has forcibly deputized social media companies, who must censor any statements that cast Moslems in a negative light, the truth be damned, or pay millions of Euros in fines. Telling the truth is now a “criminal offense”. [Germany: Full Censorship Now Official by Judith Bergman, Gatestone Institute, October 21, 2017.]

I don’t buy the notion that Frau Merkel was too stupid to know what she was doing. She had to know that not only were the Syrians completely incompatible with German society, but that they would turn Germany into a Moslem state in a generation’s time.

The “refugee crisis” had to be a broad, coordinated, criminal conspiracy to commit democide, with Angela Merkel at the center.

At the time, I figured that Merkel was obituary-shopping, willing to sacrifice her country for positive write-ups from Leftist media operatives.

However, I later learned that Merkel’s father was a Protestant minister who in 1954 had taken his family and fled freedom in the West to return to Communist East Germany.

I then learned that Merkel had lied about her role in the Communist youth group she was in. Other former East Germans contradicted her, maintaining that she was involved in promoting Marxism-Leninism and “brainwashing,” and that her position was as secretary for agitation and propaganda. [How Close Was Merkel to the Communist System?, Spiegel, May 14, 2013.]

I now believe that Merkel is a crypto-Communist who was trained as a young girl to do what she is doing. Yet another Manchurian Candidate.

But how could Christian Democrat Chancellor Helmut Kohl be so stupid, as to make her his protégé?!

Stupid—like Republicans!

Is Angela Merkel the ultimate expression of “Hitler’s Revenge”?

March or Die! How Algeria Deals with Illegal Aliens

By Jerry PDX
Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 7:12:00 P.M. EDT

Here is another link to a more detailed AP story re Algeria's expulsion of illegals. Here is an excerpt from the story:

"In Assamaka, the migrants settle into a depression in the dunes behind the border post until the IOM can get enough buses to fetch them. The IOM offers them a choice: Register with IOM to return eventually to their home countries or fend for themselves at the border.

"Some decide to take their chances on another trip north, moving to The Dune, an otherworldly open-air market a few kilometers away, where macaroni and gasoline from Algeria are sold out of the back of pickups and donkey carts. From there, they will try again to return to Algeria, in hopes of regaining the lives and jobs they left behind. Trucks are leaving all the time, and they take their fare in Algerian dinars."


Jerry: Sounds like a lot of these people are making a choice to go back to Algeria, instead of accepting help to go back home. So why are the Algerians responsible again?

The article also mentioned that the trip back south is essentially the same trip they took to get to Algeria. So if they successfully made it to Algeria, then why can't they also get back home the same way?

[N.S.: The AP group member also makes it sound as if Algeria were their home, and they are being uprooted from it.]

Notice also, if you do search for these articles on google, they all mention "pregnant women" prominently, and show pictures of women. However, it's just like the boat immigrants and Mex at the border; every wide shot of the crowds of people shows it's 95% young males. It's designed to elicit sympathy and steer attention away from the fact that these mass migrations are usually invasions of 20-something-year-old men. No mention or photos of children, though I can't believe these migrants have no children, so I gather from that that the Algerians are exempting people with children. That has to be the case because these kind of articles would love nothing better than to blast "migrant children sent to the desert to die." All they need is one kid to die to be able to do that, but there isn't a peep about children.

Rep. Joseph Crowley: So much for going along, to get along

Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 8:26:00 P.M. EDT

The rest of the story...according to Tucker Carlson

Rep. Joseph Crowley of New York, a top-ranking Democrat and a rising star in the party, lost in a stunning upset Tuesday to a little-known primary challenger, sending shock waves through the party out of power less than five months before the midterm elections.

With almost all the ballots tallied, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old activist, had more than 57 percent of the vote to 42 percent for Crowley, the fourth-ranking House Democrat. Crowley became just the third sitting member of Congress, and the first Democratic incumbent, to lose in a primary this year.

GRA: The rest of the story is Cortez ran a racist campaign, according to Carlson. Her platform was described as the following, "He's a white man and a white man cannot represent this area. "She also wants free everything for her Mexican constituency. It reminds me of the Indian immigrant that's running for governor of Michigan, Shri Thanedar, a guy that can barely speak understandable English—he wants to give away everything as well.

There are plenty of socialists out there willing to give these foreigners a chance. Amazing,

N.S.: If Ocasio-Cortez is wonderful, what’s wrong with Richard Spencer, or even the KKK? To those who celebrate Ocasio-Cortez, Why do you hate white people?

Patriotic whites must form their own party. Even if Trump wins re-election in 2020, he will still be saddled with the Party of Cowards, some of whose members in both houses have been sabotaging him all along. It takes a while for a new party to establish itself, and if the new party wins any seats while Trump is still president, and he doesn’t betray his base, its national elected officials can support him in their votes.



The Vector Marketing/Cutco Knives Scam (Video and Essay)

By Nicholas Stix

(I first posted this as a couple of comments at Youtube, at the video at the bottom of the page.)

Mr. Franz, you’re a funny fellow, and I liked your video, even though I hate watching videos that are more than a few minutes long. Have you tried stand-up comedy? Oh, and you have a great first name.

I’m here because I’m checking out Vector. A letter from Vector came today, addressed to a family member. The letter had a handsome letterhead, with “VECTOR,” preceded by a blue V with three arrows aiming upward on the right. So far, so good. (You showed the symbol in your vid.)

A proper letterhead contains the company’s address, telephone number, Website, and the name of the correspondent. This letter had none of those. It had my family member’s name and address, and a “Website” in the family member’s name, in the form of JohnDoe.VectorApply.com.

The envelope said, “SUMMER WORK OPPORTUNITY ENCLOSED,” above the address window, but had no return address. The Website was to ascertain how my family member responded. That is not the way legitimate companies do business.

The letter promised “$18.50 base appt.,” which was completely lacking in credibility.

Vector didn’t say how it got our address, but its m.o. is to get its new marks to give it all of their friends’ addresses.

When I was younger (i.e., in my thirties) and desperate, I looked into scams similar to Vector. They either waste your time, or force you to exploit all of your friends and family.

As for whether what Vector does is illegal or merely unethical, if the stories I found are true, the company is surely committing crimes, but they are done to people who are dirt poor, whom law enforcement will not help. The cops’ll lie and tell you, “It’s a civil matter.”

As for the nasty comments in support of Vector, these are obviously people who are still with the company.

Breaking News: General John Kelly is Resigning as White House Chief of Staff

 

Mick Mulvaney
 

By Nicholas Stix

Tucker Carlson reported this on his show tonight. Carlson mentioned OMB Director Mick Mulvaney and former Trump White House Communications Director Hope Hicks as possible successors, while leaving no doubt that he thinks Hicks would be a better fit. Carlson suggested that Mulvaney would not be on the same page with the President on policy, while noting that Trump has great respect for Hicks, who has long clicked with the President. However, he also noted that Hicks is notoriously press-shy and the Chief of Staff job would require that she interact with the media on a regular basis.

Did I hear Tucker Carlson wrong? How could a press-shy person function as White House Communications director?

Video: Hear a Drinking Story Involving John Wayne, William Holden, John Ford and The Horse Soldiers (1959)

By Nicholas Stix

The Horse Soldiers (1959) had excellent potential, with two of the most dynamic stars of the ‘50s, Jack Ford, etc., but fell apart.

The Horse Soldiers was marred by the death of stuntman Fred Kennedy, who broke his neck doing a simple horse fall. Ford and Wayne had worked with Kennedy for years and both were devastated. Ford lost interest in the picture.” [Scott Eyman, John Wayne: The Life and Legend (New York: Simon & Schuster, 2014).]

Note too that beginning with Mister Roberts (1955), the older Ford got, the more erratic he became. Sometimes he get it all together, as with The Searchers, and sometimes, most notoriously in his last collaboration with Wayne, Donovan’s Reef (1963), the old man was lost.

MSNBC’s 2 p.m. gang member-host peddled a new insult to First Lady Melania Trump: Somehow, she was dressed inappropriately (“fiasco”) for her visit to illegal alien children today. Melania Trump succeeded the tackiest First Lady in American history, and yet I never heard the MSM insult Michelle “Obama’s” taste, or anything else about her.

There is no depth to which these mopes will not stoop against the Trumps.

The gang member also turned reality upside down, in switching the unfitness of the illegal alien criminals, in putting the children they brought with them in harm’s way, to the government’s failure, in being unprepared to reunite the children with already deported “parents.”

The adult illegal alien criminals caused this situation, not the government, but the MSM love colored criminals, and have a murderous hatred for hate white patriots.

Media gang member Natasha Bertrand of The Atlantic was then a guest, and lied, with a smug face, asserting that President Trump “is still in denial about Russian interference in the election.”

Bertrand is completely fact-resistant, even at this late date.

There were more lies, but I wasn’t taking notes, and couldn’t possibly remember them all.

NAACP WILL TRY TO FAN IMMIGRATION FLAMES IN GRAND RAPIDS TODAY (Wednesday, June 27)

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 8:14:00 P.M. EDT

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The NAACP has announced plans for a Wednesday rally demanding that children separated from their families at the border be reunited with them immediately.

The NAACP said the rally is being held in Grand Rapids because some 50 children separated from their families at the border are being housed in the area.

The rally is scheduled for noon Wednesday at the First Park Congregational Church on E. Park Place NE near Division Avenue and Fulton Street.

Following the rally, representatives with the NAACP organization at the local, state and national level will participate in a public demand for reunification. NAACP leaders say they will be flanked by leaders from the American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights organizations.

GRA: As if we don't have enough minority garbage going on already in GR. The point of this "rally and march" is what?

Trish Regan, Jim Acosta, and “Freddy Krueger Reporting”

 


Fox News’ Trish Regan

Fox News’ Trish Regan blew it today. She tried to comment on CNN’s Jim Acosta getting heckled by the crowd at the Trump rally last night.

"We shouldn't be doing that," she whined," "We're better than that. He's just trying to do his job."

Trish, you may have great legs, but your brains are not to that level of greatness. Acosta is one of the originators of "Freddy Krueger reporting." He's not doing his job, which is supposed to be reporting the news in a non-political way.
 


CNN’s Jim Acosta
 

The reason liberals are showing violent, anti-social tendencies can be laid right on Acosta, Lemon, CNN, NBC News, Lesta Holt and MSNBC—for starters. Their reports are inflammatory, and getting worse each day. If these entities reported with less bias, the Trump crowds wouldn't feel a need to let him know that "CNN sucks." Throw in Hollywood, plus late night TV, and you have a recipe for an assassination.

She wants Republicans to act dignified and calm, while Dems show no sign of cooling their own rhetoric/threats/actions? I totally disagree. Dems first—and they can start off by supporting a wall and tougher border rules. Then the media can stop the crappy, subjective reporting. However, that unlikely turn of events, has as much chance of happening as a White Sox/Mets World Series.

SCOTUS Rules 5-4 in Favor of Trump Travel Ban

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 10:32:00 A.M. EDT

Breaking: SCOTUS rules 5-4 in favor of Trump travel ban. This case was brought by the state of Hawaii. Good thing Trump got to appoint Gorsuch. Trump based the travel ban on "national security," not a religious ban. CNN, while picking it apart, seemed to be saying this ruling—as with the gay cake case, is limited only to this particular scenario, because Trump threw in North Korea and Venezuela, along with Muslim countries. All Muslim countries MAY not have won over the backing of the Court. It's all in the nuance. FOX interpreted it as "an overwhelming affirmation of his broad authority."
 

N.S.: This means that Mitch McConnell has been good for something. It was McConnell, if memory serves, who blocked the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” from foisting Merritt Garland on the high court, which would have turned this vote into a victory for “Obama.”

Weaponizing Foreign Children Against America: A Crack WEJB/NSU Panel Weighs in

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 11:01:00 A.M. EDT

The definition of a “Trojan horse” is someone or something intended to defeat or subvert from within, usually by deceptive means.

The chillen are all Trojan horses. The deceptive means is the fact that along with letting children in, you must also allow the adults to accompany them (because you get a package deal of no separation).

The Central American countries know the media will focus on the "chillen" and count on the collective American weakness of guilt and sympathy to allow the whole bunch in.

But as I posted, Mexico wants a deluge of immigrants to engulf this country—their new, ultra-liberal President will see to that. Americans must understand, we will not have an English-speaking country anymore—we will become what the immigrants are running away from: A gang-filled, drug-infested, violent, financially strapped (broke) country.

That article also reported President Trump will likely go back to "catch and release,", due to the sheer volume of the immigrant invasion. Trump MUST order troops and, if necessary, a pushback of immigrants into Mexican territory. This is the "red line" of Trump's administration. He must not let the immigrants cross it. Yes, the Democrats will try to capitalize—but I hope the polling results from Rasmussen show we can say "NO MAS" to this calculated invasion of foreigners. If we have to, a war with Mexico might be needed for emphasis.

This should be the two-word catchphrase by Trump—in regard to the crisis—simple and to the point: "NO MAS!" (Or "F You Mexico," as a backup phrase [chuckle].)
 

Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 2:33:00 P.M. EDT

The real clue for observant American citizens about what type of people are trying to come up here, is the illegal aliens’ own description of their homelands. Theoretically, if there were more good people than bad in countries like Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, they could stay and change the country—defeat the groups causing chaos.

The quote is, "They're trying to get away from crime, rape, gangs, etc." Which I take as an admission there are NOT mostly good people in those (and other countries).

Something doesn't add up with the argument, does it? If a certain percent of Guatemalans are evil and criminal, one must assume the same similar percentage of criminal types are trying to cross into the US (not to escape their life, but to extend and bring to our country, the SAME life, for bigger, mostly drug trafficked profits).

Plus welfare, free education, etc.

I don't believe a word of their sob stories. This is a Democrat/Soros/Mexican coordinated plan to destroy the US as we (barely) know it. Trump must not allow it to happen.
 

N.S.: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras are the countries of the Northern Triangle, one of the world’s most violent areas. Some reports peg El Salvador as the world’s murder capital, with Guatemala and Honduras not far behind. However, such nations are so corrupt that their record-keeping isn’t exactly reliable. And yet, one can generalize about all three that murder is their national pastime.

Migrants are coached on what to say when they are caught at the border. It evolves and morphs into whatever tugs at the heartstrings of bleeding hearts, and matches the requirements for "conflict" refugee status. These countries are not at war, so "gangs" become the boogey man they are fleeing from. Never mind that the vast majority of these people will end up in barrios infested with violent gangs doing what violent gangs do. That isn't mentioned in the liberal media.

Bringing kids is another technique that is common knowledge now to use. After all, they know that white liberals fall down in throes of worship when the word "child" is used. Never mind that many of the so-called children are adult males masquerading as children, or that many of the children are being brought by coyotes or traffickers posing as parents.

Now that the hysteria is making the border agents paranoid about separating children from parents, they can expect many more of those exploiters to successfully traffic children. Way to go, liberal media.

None of the pro-immigration rhetoric adds up. Followed to its logical conclusion, then we should be bringing all people from south of the border to the "safety" of the US and save them, especially all the little helpless children. It's beyond stupid but this is liberalism, folks.

However, I don't believe that Democrats/Soros (and various others in his cabal of ultra-rich, greedy SOBs)/Mexicans want to "destroy" the US. They actually believe in this diversity idiocy. They think that we're some kind of dead, inert culture that is going nowhere without the wonders of multiculturalism and other such crap. This delusional nonsense is underlied by a fanatical belief that the US must continue to grow "economically" and only more human beings in our borders can keep those economic indicators going up and up, therefore making the rich even richer. The reality is, though, that it will turn us into a Third World hellhole with a few islands of super-rich keeping themselves safe from crime and social chaos.

Yes, Trump, for all his faults, is our only hope in stopping this. If we don't hold the line here the next step is the fate of Sweden and Germany. If the forces of evil led by the likes of Hillary succeed in free borders not only will we have a massive inflow of Mexicans and Central Americans, the Muslims and African (99% men) will hop whatever plane or boat they can get on to come here and demand citizenship. This is our future, if that is allowed to happen:

Jerry PDX,

N.S. can probably give some compelling reasons why Soros and company would like to destroy the USA. I believe Soros (and the globalists/Dems/Mex) want to see the USA weakened to such a point, that it can literally be invaded by communist forces (China, Russia?) and put out of its misery. If the white population is continually diluted to a level of unimportance, will the blacks and Mex that replace us be intelligent enough to fight off a foreign attack? Not a chance. This is a long-term goal for the anti-USA forces. Most whiteys are unaware of the consequences of today’s actions, imho.
 

N.S.: Soros, et al. are Marxists. Marxists always want to destroy America, because they see it as the pre-eminent, capitalist power. I don’t think America has been a capitalist country for some time, but try telling Marxists that.

First Stalin (1928) and then Trotsky (1930s) proposed importing low-IQ, violent, African blacks to invade and topple Western, capitalist countries.

Most whites are a lost cause. They’ll say or do anything, to protect themselves from being called “racist.”

War criminal Joeviair Kennedy, of the Bowtie Brigade
 

N.S.: MLive operative Emily Monacelli wrote that Joeviair Kennedy was “an admitted member of the Bloods gang,” but somehow failed to mention that he is also a member of the Nation of Islam

This was a Nation of Islam hate crime murder, and a war crime.

“Earlier this year, an attorney Kennedy hired asked to withdraw from the case, saying there had been a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship connected to what he believed was coaching by Kennedy's family. At that hearing, Bridenstine said, Kennedy also refused to answer the judge's questions and said his rights had been violated.

"‘I demand to be released,’ Bridenstine quoted Kennedy as saying then. ‘I demand this matter be discharged. No one can compel involuntary servitude. I ask to be forgiven for any mistake.’

“Kennedy repeated a similar statement Tuesday when the judge asked whether he would cooperate with Solis.

“Bridenstine said Kennedy has only had limited communication with Solis, has a steadfast determination not to work with Solis and said Kennedy has said multiple times in court that he has not regarded Solis as his attorney.”

This is Nation of Islam talk. The NOI teaches that no black man owes obeisance to “the white man’s laws.” If, as Judge Bridenstein suspected, Kennedy’s family coached him to refuse to cooperate with the court, then they are almost certainly also NOI members. I also strongly suspect that racist black jurors extorted an acquittal for Kennedy on the murder charge. It has been the case for generations that under American laws, if you participate in a crime, and one of your accomplices kills someone, you are every bit as guilty of the murder as he is. However, black supremacists refuse to accept that, because they try to protect, by hook or by crook, black murderers whenever possible.


At WEJB/NSU, you get the back stories the media refuse to report on.

KALAMAZOO, MI -- A former Western Michigan University basketball player charged with murder and other felonies is refusing to cooperate with court proceedings against him.

Jury selection expected to start Tuesday, June 5, was delayed until Wednesday as Joeviair Kennedy was disruptive in proceedings in Kalamazoo County Circuit Court Judge Paul J. Bridenstine's courtroom.

Kennedy, 21, did not answer Bridenstine's questions in court of whether he would remain quietly in the courtroom and work with his court-appointed lawyer, Eusebio Solis. Kennedy refused to answer whether he would represent himself, or whether he would allow Solis to work on his behalf during the jury trial.
Instead, Kennedy objected and said his rights had been violated.

Kennedy is charged with murder, armed robbery and two counts of felony firearm in the Dec. 8, 2016, shooting death of WMU student Jacob Jones. Jones, 19, was gunned down in his apartment at SoHo apartments on Howard Street near the university's campus.

Kennedy's co-defendant and Muskegon High School basketball teammate, Jordan Waire, was found guilty in May of murder and all other counts against him in Jones' death. In a preliminary examination for Waire's case, Kennedy said it was Waire who pulled the trigger.

Jurors deliberated for less than three hours.

Earlier this year, an attorney Kennedy hired asked to withdraw from the case, saying there had been a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship connected to what he believed was coaching by Kennedy's family. At that hearing, Bridenstine said, Kennedy also refused to answer the judge's questions and said his rights had been violated.

"I demand to be released," Bridenstine quoted Kennedy as saying then. "I demand this matter be discharged. No one can compel involuntary servitude. I ask to be forgiven for any mistake."

Kennedy repeated a similar statement Tuesday when the judge asked whether he would cooperate with Solis.

Bridenstine said Kennedy has only had limited communication with Solis, has a steadfast determination not to work with Solis and said Kennedy has said multiple times in court that he has not regarded Solis as his attorney.

"I have not found any cause, much less a sufficient cause, to substitute court-appointed counsel as defendant has refused to work with Mr. Solis from the very beginning of their very relationship," Bridenstine said Tuesday.

Bridenstine said Kennedy may not purposely break down the attorney-client relationship by refusing to cooperate with his attorney, and then argue there is a cause to substitute attorneys. Kennedy also has not asked the court to appoint a different attorney, Bridenstine said.

Bridenstine said Kennedy will not permit Solis to say anything in court without interrupting him and continues to be disruptive of court proceedings.

"Should he continue this behavior, it will make it impossible for Mr. Solis to defend him during a jury trial while Mr. Kennedy is present in the courtroom," Bridenstine said. "As a result, so long as Mr. Kennedy continues to defy the court's order and continues to prevent Mr. Solis from performing his responsibilities, Mr. Kennedy is forfeiting his right to remain in the courtroom during the trial."

Bridenstine said he also has the opportunity to have Kennedy gagged and remain in the courtroom, but said he has determined that would be more prejudicial to the jury than to have him watching proceedings from another courtroom.

Kennedy will be allowed to watch and listen to proceedings in another courtroom, and he will be given a pad of paper and a pen to take notes. He will be allowed to consult with his attorney on breaks, Bridenstine said.

Jury selection will start Wednesday morning. Bridenstine said he intends to ask Kennedy Wednesday morning if he will cooperate in the courtroom before placing him in the separate courtroom.

We Must Protect Immigrants from Americans! Steve Sailer Provides a Unique Style of Sarcasm ...

Masha Gessen in The NEW YORKER: "Trump’s Opponents Aren’t Arguing for 'Open Borders'—But Maybe They Should"
By Steve Sailer
June 23, 2018

From The New Yorker:

Our Columnists

Trump’s Opponents Aren’t Arguing for “Open Borders”—But Maybe They Should
By Masha Gessen June 22, 2018
The New Yorker

… During the weeks of controversy surrounding the policy of separating families at the border, the Trump Administration has succeeded in framing the debate as one between supporters of enforcing immigration law and supporters of open borders. When he cited the Bible as justification for the family-separation policy, Attorney General Jeff Sessions also used it to attack his imaginary opponents: “I don’t think there is a scriptural basis that justifies any idea that we must have open borders in the world today.” At a rally in Minnesota on Wednesday, Trump declared, “The Democrats want open borders.”

Sadly, this is not true: no voice audible in the American political mainstream is making the argument for open borders. Since Trump’s apparent concession on the issue of separating families, two prominent commentators on the right have argued for fortified border security, and even for the wall itself; some pundits have encouraged Democrats to move further to the right on immigration. No counterargument has emerged from the left. The existence of borders, and the need and right to police them, are among the unquestioned assumptions in the conversation.


Establishment personages like Masha Gessen, former head of US government propaganda activities in Russia, don’t want to get stuck having to explicitly defend Open Borders because it’s obviously an insane policy (look at what percentage of Puerto Ricans now live in the Fifty States). So Masha tries out various passive-aggressive formulations that allow her to back off if seriously challenged.

Even more common is not defending Open Borders, just demonizing anybody or any mechanism for partially closing borders. Hence, anti-anti-Open Borders sentiment is now the conventional wisdom, while defending the existence of borders is seen as hate-filled extremism. For a white gentile to have an opinion on who should not be let in is tantamount to Discrimination and thus unthinkable.

And more and more Establishment voices are coming out as more or less Open Borders advocates. For example, NYTneoconservative columnist Bret Stephens [Email him] recently called for Open Borders for everybody except people he, personally, dislikes:
I’ll be accused of wanting open borders. Subtract terrorists, criminals, violent fanatics and political extremists from the mix, and I plead guilty to wanting more-open borders. Come on in. There’s more than enough room in this broad and fruitful land of the free.

Masha goes on:
Outside the political mainstream, activists and academics have questioned the certainty that borders must be protected, or that those who live within the borders are automatically entitled to enforce them. In a recent academic collection, Kieran Oberman, a political theorist at the University of Edinburgh, makes the case for a human right to immigration. He argues that the right to enter a country and spend any amount of time there—though not necessarily the right to obtain citizenship—flows naturally from universally declared human rights to freedom of movement, freedom of association, and freedom of occupational choice. In an interconnected world, it is often necessary to cross borders for personal, professional, and political reasons. …

Sarah Fine, a political philosopher at King’s College, in London, who is working on a book on the “right to exclude,” or the right of states to keep people out, has raised another provocative argument. If democracy is a system that guarantees the right of the governed to participate in the governing process, then democracy confined to protected national borders contains an internal contradiction. [N.S.: No, it doesn’t.] Those who are banned from entering a country are, in effect, governed—the Central American mother at the border whose child is ripped away from her by U.S. Border Patrol agents is being governed in the extreme—yet they have no say in the rules, or in the election of those who make them. [N.S.: Yes, and criminals must have a veto right over the laws they are breaking, even foreign criminals!]

It’s obviously a betrayal of the principles of American democracy that people who aren’t American citizens and who don’t live in America aren’t even allowed to vote on whether they should be allowed to move to America. It would be like that homeless guy you step over on the sidewalk outside your house not having a say in whether he gets to move in with you. Well … no, it’s not like that at all. But you know what I mean.

In contrast, Russian Facebook ads are a violation of American sovereignty that justifies going all DEFCON 1 on Putin. (To Gessen’s credit, she’s less nuts about about Russian social media war than many other pundits.)

Neither Oberman’s nor Fine’s lines of thought are arguments for open borders, though perhaps they should be. …

Masha Gessen, a staff writer, has written several books, including, most recently, “The Future Is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia,” which won the National Book Award in 2017.

Of course, letting anybody from anywhere move to America anytime they feel like it is hardly the end of our obligations to the other seven billion people on Earth. Once they get here, they will need elaborate government programs, special privileges, and veto powers over American culture to feel at home. For example, Ms. Gessen wrote a book, THE BROTHERS: The Road to an American Tragedy, about how America let down the Tsarnaevs, the Boston Bomb Brothers. From the review in the Washington Post:

… Gessen contends that the United States was as responsible as the misguided youths for the explosions near the marathon finish line that killed three and injured more than 260.

Similarly, the Soviet-born Ms. Gessen feels the need to scold Americans incessantly in famous American periodicals over how America is just not living up to her expectations.

By the way, as I suggested in 2015:

In fact, what immigration patriots should do is create a new federal immigration bureaucracy staffed with otherwise unemployable graduates of anthropology, cultural studies, comparative religion, ethnic studies, and psychology majors to review all applications for asylum and immigration from the perspective of whether the United States is too racist, culturally insensitive, religiously bigoted, capitalistic, etc. for the poor innocent foreigner to have a reasonable chance to not be offended by having to live in America.

It would be called the Federal Bureau for the Protection of The Other.

It would be given a veto over the immigration of any foreigner likely to suffer insensitivity from Americans, such as children asking to touch his or her hair, or Americans getting confused over which country he or she is from — e.g., the only way to prevent insensitive Americans from wounding the psyche of Iraqi newcomers by confusing them with Iranians and vice-versa is to not let in any more Iraqi and Iranian potential victims of nativist ignorance. The same goes for Eritreans and Ethiopians.

For example, how punching down of me to have once asked the thin-nosed beige skinned ladies in elaborate dresses in Uptown if they were Ethiopians, and they were offended because they were Eritreans; and Ethiopians, who live in the same block in Uptown in Chicago so they can shop at the Eritrean/Ethiopian grocery store, are their mortal enemies. How much better these poor Eritreans would have been if instead of being in mindless Uptown they had been home with their cultural peers who understand that all Ethiopians must die and other unquestionable verities of Eritrean culture.

Clearly, the current immigration bureaucracy is overly infected with low-brow ideas of American exceptionalism. We need to hire an entire bureau of leftist grad students who understand how America crushes the innocent dreams of The Other, and we will pay them bonuses for protecting The Other by not letting The Other into our country. This bureau of Howard Zinn and Masha Gessen fans should not be allowed to initiate or approve immigration applications, but it should be allowed to veto applications on the grounds that hateful America doesn’t deserve these immigrants.

For example, the Tsarnaevs and Todashev were just carrying out ancient Caucasus traditions of berserker raids upon enemy tribes and ritual assassinations of Jews that go back to the hashish-besotted Assassins of the Caucasus observed by Marco Polo. Back home, this tradition is deep rooted and honored, but in ignorant, insensitive America, few seem to grasp that they were just behaving like good Chechen lads down through the centuries. How much happier they would have been staying home in their native cultural milieu where they would have been afforded the dignity attaining to the perpetrators of acts of carnage.

What America needs is a giant bureaucracy stuffed with leftist liberal arts majors who are getting salary, health care, and pension far beyond what they can earn in the private sector whose only mission is to protect would-be immigrants from being traumatized by exposure to hate-filled Americans by not letting them in to the country.
