JOHN KIRIAKOU: The Press Should Not Be Shielding FBI Malfeasance – Consortiumnews

Posted by M. C. on December 2, 2019

https://consortiumnews.com/2019/11/27/john-kiriakou-the-press-should-not-be-shielding-fbi-malfeasance/

By John Kiriakou

The Washington Post and other media outlets last week reported that a former FBI attorney allegedly altered a document related to the FBI’s 2016 surveillance of Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser.  FBI Inspector General Michael Horowitz apparently concluded that the conduct “did not affect the overall validity of the surveillance application,” which was made with the secret FISA court.

The Post article, as well as articles in The New York Times, at CNN, and in other outlets, downplayed the behavior as having had “no effect” on the FBI’s surveillance of Page, ignoring the fact that tampering with a federal document is a felony.  That’s consistent with the Justice Department’s own policy of protecting their own while wrecking the lives of those who have the guts to stand up to them.

Publishing Excuses 

Look at The Washington Post’s original account of the inspector general’s findings.  The FBI attorney was just a “low-level employee” who has already “been forced out of the Bureau.”  The altered document “did not affect the overall validity of the surveillance application.”  The employee “erroneously indicated he had documentation to back up a claim he had made in discussions with the Justice Department about the factual basis for the application.  He then altered an email to back up that erroneous claim.”

Let’s straighten a few things outs.

First, the employee was not “low-level.”  Attorneys enter the FBI at the GS-11 level.  That’s a starting salary of $69,581.  On Day One of his career, the attorney would actually be a mid-level employee.  Furthermore, “low-level employees” are not assigned to sensitive operations involving counterintelligence against a major-party presidential campaign. Hand-picked senior employees get that honor.

Second, even if the altered document didn’t affect the FISA warrant application, the statement is irrelevant.  The attorney committed a felony, plain and simple.

Third, the media says that the attorney “erroneously indicated” that he could back up the document. But that, too, was a felony.  It’s called “making a false statement” and it’s punishable by up to five years in prison.

To make matters worse, there is no indication from the Justice Department that this attorney will be prosecuted.  “He’s already resigned,” The Washington Post tells us, as if that’s supposed to make everything OK.  Why is the mainstream media shielding FBI malfeasance?  For FBI crimes?  Because the victim is the Trump campaign, and we’re not supposed to like the Trump campaign. It’s all about Russia, Russia, Russia, remember?  If the evidence doesn’t show that, you just change the evidence.

Letter from Terry Albury

We shouldn’t be surprised about this kind of behavior from the FBI or from the Justice Department writ large.  I received a letter this week from FBI whistleblower Terry Albury.  He’s the courageous former FBI agent who blew the whistle on systemic racism in the bureau.  And he received four years in prison for his trouble.  Terry wrote to tell me about an experience that he’s having identical to my own, when I was in prison after blowing the whistle on the CIA’s torture program.

Terry has less than a year left on his sentence.  He has watched over the past year as dozens of prisoners around him have been sent from their low-security prison to a minimum-security work camp.  These are prisoners who have committed violent crimes; prisoners who have attempted escape in the past; and prisoners who are incarcerated because they are recidivists.  Here’s what Terry wrote:

“On 11/13/2018, I self-surrendered to FCI Englewood in Littleton, CO.  In assigning me to a Low Security Prison (LSP), the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) placed a Management Variable (MGTV) on my case to counteract my extremely high security score of zero.  Of the variables at their disposal, I was deemed to be a ‘Greater Security Threat.’

According to institutional policy:

When the BOP believes that an offender represents a greater security risk than the assigned security level would suggest, it may apply this Management Variable and place the inmate in an institution with a higher security level.  The BOP typically applies this MGTV to offenders with lengthy prior arrest records but few convictions, nonviolent offenders who have a history of poor adjustment under probation or community supervision, offenders with a history of organized crime, offenders with significant foreign ties and/or financial resources, and offenders who have had disciplinary problems during prior incarceration.  Inmates who receive this MGTV are placed one security level higher than their score would otherwise require.

The facts of my case and background confirm that none of these parameters apply.  Furthermore, an analysis of the policy clearly demonstrates that I should never have been placed (and continue to be held) in an LSP.

Over the past year, I’ve consistently complied with all institutional rules, taken extensive BOP-sponsored educational courses, and earned the support of my case manager, unit manager, and warden who followed BOP Policy and authorized the removal of my erroneous MGTV and subsequent transfer to a Minimum Security Prison (MSP) within 500 miles of my residence (in line with Congressional guidance under the First Step Act).

In authorizing my 10/11/2019 transfer to an MSP and the removal of my MGTV, Case Manager D. Taylor specifically cited “unit team discretion outlined in PS P5100.08” which further states “when a management variable no longer applies, institution staff will remove the variable(s) accordingly.”  Program Statement 5270.09 is also clear in that “the Unit Team may recommend a greater security transfer, using their professional judgment, and in accordance with the policy on inmate security designation and custody classification.”

However, on 10/30/2019, I was informed that the DSCC’s Designation and Sentence Computation Center (DSCC) discounted, rejected, and overturned my legally justified transfer and MGTV removal.  Furthermore, they unilaterally assigned a new MGTV to my case (“monitoring required”) in spite of the fact that all federal prisoners are subjected to comprehensive phone, e-mail, and traditional mail monitoring at every prison around the country (minimum, low, medium, and high).

To say that I’m being held to a different institutional standard would be an understatement. Over the past year, I’ve watched prisoners transfer to MSPs with nine security points, violent backgrounds, five or more years remaining on their sentence, and histories of escape.

Yet somehow, a man with zero security points, a non-violent background, less than a year remaining on his sentence, and someone authorized to self-surrender, I was deemed to be ineligible for placement in an MSP.  And to exacerbate the issue, the entire executive staff of FCI Englewood supported my transfer and no longer believed I warranted the misguided and inappropriate MGTV of “greater security threat.”

In an effort to resolve this issue, I’ve filed a series of administrative grievances, which is on par with applying scotch tape to fill a leak in the Hoover Dam.  I have no confidence in the internal process which is why I am pursuing all available external channels to voice my concerns.”

The fix is in, not just with Terry Albury, but with the whole system.  Want to tell the press that the FBI is an inherently racist organization?  Go ahead. You’ll get years in prison.  Want to tamper with federal documents to prove a political point?  Don’t worry. The press will cover for you and the chances are that the Department of Justice won’t even bother to prosecute.

Terry Albury will be home soon, where he’ll continue the fight for transparency and honesty in government.  But the fight is a daunting one, especially when the mainstream media is one of your enemies.  It’s a fight we should all be happy to take on.

Now, I am White/Other – So Bite Me. (article)

Posted by M. C. on November 16, 2019

It’s time to start lying about your ethnicity. Especially if you live in or around London.

In order to gain proper healthcare in the UK National Health System one must lie about where you originate. Shamefully, this is the only way to ensure the same care as everyone else is getting, especially on vaccines.

The British National Health System is now so corrupt I cannot see how it could be sorted out by continually lying about the health of different nationalities. For instance, according to NHS England every race other than whites are prone to health problems if they get obese. However, this is statistically incorrect. False. Not true. So why are the NHS doing this and continually getting away with it? Apathy? Corruption?

Check out the British national Body Mass Index calculator for the NHS compared the world wide one and you will see a difference in the advice given by ethnicity on the NHS calculator. If filled out for any ethnicity you will get the stark warning of:

“Your ethnicity means you will be at high risk of health issues at a BMI of 27.5 and above.”

https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator/

Now do it for the one beginning with W.

The truth is every human, regardless of ethnicity, is at risk of health issues with a BMI of over 27.5. Discrimination is when the same services and advice are not given!

This is a international Body Mass Index calculator – please note lack of ethnicity choice.

https://www.calculator.net/bmi-calculator.html

It’s that easy. Who is instigating these policies? I have complained about the BMI checker to the NHS on every front that I can…they don’t care. It’s like the mental health worker who comes around to visit me. She talks of her childhood and how her mother would invite white children over so ‘they could have a decent meal’. The same worker then would then tell me that as a Muslim woman she is more likely to be raped by skinheads and the racism towards her is terrible. As she wears western clothes I fail to to see how her being Muslim would have anything to do with it …I digress.

I read many reports – as much as one person can stomach on how badly BME staff are treated in the NHS and when reading articles and papers from the NHS I’ve discovered there is no evidence to back up their claims. None or very little. In fact everything points to equality within complaints against white or BME staff but that black staff are more likely to complain…that isn’t the same as black staff being mistreated.

It all makes for very frustrating reading. I’m not suggesting that instances of racism don’t happen – I know they do. However evidence is lacking for the numbers and shifts in policy funding towards certain ethnicity. Bad clinical judgement is bad clinical judgement regardless of the colour of the Doctor. The retraining of staff who continue to put patients at risk is not a fair policy to the patients.

Does race affect the treatment received? It’s very difficult to find out as there are no feedback reports which can be trusted to give an honest account. I know that feedback forms are kept away from patients whom the ward do not want the opinion of. I also know that complaints against NHS staff and NHS doctors are not listened to or in my case continue to be investigated years after the event…leaving me with no legal recourse.

This is now my personal opinion.

I am implying that some BME doctors are using race to hold off complaints that are totally valid and often to do with clinical judgement. I’m also claiming that some organisations are funnelling money towards preferred nationalities, like the South Asian Gene and Health program from the NHS to give preferred treatments and services. I believe that they are encouraged to do for political reasons to cause division.

Vaccines.

Regarding my grandchildren. They are both white European. Being born in the London area they are funded for TB vaccine but because my daughter put the first child down as white and the second as white/other – only the second child qualifies for TB vaccine.

Immediately my daughter became concerned for the first child. My daughter and I are fully behind vaccinations. We would like the grandchildren to be both immunised against TB as we know several people with TB in our local area. It seems although both children are funded for the vaccine but only children who are listed as white/other or of other non UK born descent will be given it.

Black British baby, Arab baby, Pakistani baby, etc all will be vaccinated on NHS but no white babies. I think this is unfair and is discriminatory against the white ethnicity.  Children are equally at risk as they both live in the area where TB is prevalent. All children are funded for the vaccine by the Government because they live in London so regardless of ethnicity they ought to qualify but that is not what the NHS Trusts are doing. This is corruption. Where does the money go that was ring fenced for all the children to be vaccinated?

However, as soon as I mention racism or discrimination against whites there is a silence from the NHS and the Quality Care Commission. I have requested evidence to support the funding of special health considerations for BME patients but have been presented with none nor can I find any evidence that black or brown or green or pink people get sicker more than others.

By continually telling Doctors that white people are stronger or less likely to get sick the NHS is creating a field where white people are profiled in a completely different fashion  to other patients. For instance a white woman complaining of heart or chest pain is much more likely to be told it’s anxiousness than if a man of South Asian descent presents with chest pain at A&E.

Although heart disease is the biggest killer of women (white or other) in Britain.

For my own story I can say that I have been discriminated against and have complained at length with no real satisfaction so I wont be quiet about the things which have happened to me under NHS system any more. I’ve discharged myself from most of the hospitals I was under as the mistakes are piling up to a dangerous level.

I’m fifty years old and ever since I saw my first NHS doctor at sixteen after passing out on a bus and then at home, I’ve had a hit and miss affair with GP’s.

An male Indonesian GP up in Stoke on Trent, gave me antibiotics for Shingles when I was twenty years old but didn’t tell me that my contraceptive pill wouldn’t work because of them…so the boyfriend who gave me shingles also gave me a pregnancy. These are life altering mistakes. It was a known side effect of the antibiotics but the GP failed to tell me.

I’ve moved around the UK a lot over the years and can say London is especially bad. Sometimes the doctors do not understand you and they get angry with you for requesting little things like asking them to wash their hands before touching your child. One African Doctor did this at North Middlesex Hospital, he still had blood on his hands from the previous baby and then he went to take blood from my daughter.

I would visit my GP in Woodgreen, London. He was an Indian doctor, for my pain relief as I have Ehlers Danlos… he would tell me to pop on the bench and take my panties off, every consultation. He would also urge me to sign for contraception I wasn’t getting (having changed to condoms for safety) for his funding.

I’d put up with it..like most sick people I needed my pain medication. Like most young mums I had plenty of other things to worry about and didn’t have time to complain about a doctor who was just as bad as the last one. At least I was getting some pain relief from him although I discovered the Emflex should have only been for short periods and after two years I started to have stomach ulcers and had to change pain relief.

Another time, during a routine operation to remove endometriosis from some of my other organs at North Middlesex hospital, London, whilst I was under a Pakistani Gynaecologist an attempt was made to trick me into having a full hysterectomy when I didn’t need it or want it.

He’d asked me on the ward if I just wanted it removed and I had firmly said no. The surgeon asked  me to sign a consent for the hysterectomy after giving me my pre theatre medication ie when I was heavily under the influence of major knock out drugs.

Thankfully I don’t knock out easy because I have Ehlers Danlos and was able to read the paperwork and refuse…other women were not so lucky. I went on to have a lovely baby boy a few years later as I’ve said others were not able to. The scandal was in the papers.

I was physically assaulted by several black nurses in Kings College Hospital London and I have verbally abused by several brown coloured skin doctors over the years. I realise that calling anyone brown skinned is not nice by why should I refer to people by their nationality when I have to be just ‘white’?

I would add here that I have never racially abused anyone until a few months when within the confines of my flat, in anger of the things I’m learning, I slipped up and called a Pakistani doctor a paki. Oh yeah, I get really mean.

In order to be politically correct in the UK I must refer to tanned skinned people as  ‘South Asian’ although many do not some from South Asia. It would seem less disrespectful to just visibly describe someone rather than get their nationality wrong but hey ho with all this categorisation in the UK I’m thoroughly fed up.

I should describe myself as blue seeing as I have Ehlers Danlos!

I miss the fantastic female GP  I had in Brighton in the 1980’s. She was Chinese. Without Dr Chung’s advice I would never have gotten the Ehlers Danlos diagnosed.  I can honestly say I’ve been discriminated against by almost every doctor I’ve had since her and they have mainly been of some sort of South Asian descent.

So being that the NHS is rather low on Chinese Doctors these days we have to live with what we have. I’ve realised that by changing my ethnicity on the paperwork it may make a difference to how I am treated so I’m doing it. If nothing more it will mess up the NHS neat little divisive tactics. If I had children at least they would be offered the vaccines they should have and are entitled to.

It’s sad, I realise but as we are all equally at risk at getting ill we cannot allow the NHS to funnel funds and treatments away from ourselves and our loved ones. Ideally the ethnicity lists and categories should be removed from the NHS health care system.

I have lost many friends over the last few years all were too young to have died and they died of preventable illnesses or undiagnosed cancer, missed tumours on scans or just plain neglect on NHS wards (white and in their fifties) or being pushed too hard by their family and never going to the doctor (my only black friend).

Equality can never be achieved by division nor should it be measured in profits.

The NHS is continually calling for less racism yet it promotes racism within it’s ranks and it’s treatments and then expects patients not to notice.  Well patients notice.

My ex-boyfriend had TB. He was tested and treated for it after having a cough. He was born and raised here in Watford but his family are from Uganda. Same age as me so he had the TB vaccine as a teenager under the old NHS system. When he got ill with cough he got screened for TB because of his colour and family background.

I am white British and as such I will not be screened for TB. For my own chest complaint went ignored for so long. In fact my cough was pleurisy (twenty years of pleurisy) right up to when I got a private x-ray to prove I had shadows on my lungs in 2009. Then the NHS diagnosed me as cystic lungs. I asked that they screen me for TB but it was refused as unnecessary as, I am told, it is impossible for me to get TB.

I speak to health professionals about my worries. They agree, unfortunately, and tell me it’s because of where I live. I agree with them but I obviously know that isn’t the case as I’ve lived all over the UK. Many professionals are leaving the UK, unable to cope with the mounting problems and hypocrisy. This isn’t the answer.

Whilst there are people treating the NHS as a cash cow for their own agendas, there are also Doctors of every colour and creed who would never consider treating patients differently regarding their colour. These Docs mustn’t be abandoned, nor should the system which has apparently abandoned them.

The National Health System is something exceptional. In theory it does work, the corruption and bare faced lies must stop as they make the system wasteful and divisive.

I feel a patient body should be set up for each national health trust, to check the literature being printed and circulated is factually correct as much of it currently isn’t and to ensure that all patients complaints are dealt with.

I hope this ethnicity rubbish isn’t being taught in Medical School as this problem will go on to cause much division, pain and heartache for generations to come.

National Health Service (NHS) culture is sustained by a set of core values including respect and dignity, compassion, and inclusion – the latter refers to a commitment to treat everyone with equal respect and significance.

An example of the literature I am talking about…there is no evidence of these factors for the UK, Yvonne Coghill, the author, uses evidence from America to back up her claims.

Many thanks for reading.

Racism in America – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 16, 2019

People of north European origin are by far the least racist and least sexist people on the planet, the reason why everyone from the around the world wants to come to places run by them.

Given that very soon 50% of America will be of non-European origin, politics of America will turn sharply to the Left, once Trump is gone. There is too much inertia to stop the inevitable. The US will likely become the first western country to destroy itself…

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/08/jayant-bhandari/racism-in-america/

By

According to the American media it seems that America stops people from entering the country, puts refugees in concentration camps, and that racism and sexism runs rife among the police, in university admissions, and in corporate hiring.

According to Ilhan Omar, one of the emerging members of the US Congress, the most crime-prone people in the US are of European origin. She wants them to be profiled and monitored. Ironically, her parents, instead of moving to a Muslim country or another African country, chose to move to America. And no doubt I can hardly think of anyone from South America, Africa, the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent who given a chance would not move to America.

People move to America because they get more opportunities, and feel more respected. You don’t have to bribe the policeman. Color of your skin, your sex, your religion, etc. are at least not the officially stated reasons why opportunities would be denied. Courts are reasonably fair and your private property reasonably safe.

America is a land of dreams, a land of liberty, and a land of refuge for the oppressed, a society that courageous, hard-working people who came from Europe created.

Is America perfect? It isn’t. But people come to America because it is vastly superior than what the immigrants and refugees left behind. Anyone who thinks that it is racism of America that stops him from succeeding in life is merely transferring responsibly for his own failings and laziness, or is trying to make people of European origin feel guilty to extract resources. Such a person has no gratitude for what he got, but worries only about what he didn’t get—this beggar-mentality is a part of the hellhole, Third World cultural milieu that is increasingly an acceptable part of the public discourse in America.

Of course, as Ilhan Omar demonstrates, bigotry against those of European origin is not only perfectly acceptable, but encouraged. Such bigotry is seen as a sign of having arrived, a sign that these refugees and immigrants are superior. Of course, they have nothing to show for the superiority of their tribal societies, and their oppressive religions. In the multi-cultural system of America, you must approve of the regressive customs of immigrants, and stand in awe of their so-called childish art, music and dance.

Alexandria Ocazio-Cotez looks at everything from the prism of her congressional area, dominated by immigrants and refugees from South America. Rashida Tlaib is a proud Palestinian Muslim-American. Ayanna Pressley is a proud Black-American. Ironically, none of them would be earning a $175,000 per year salary today if it wasn’t for her race, religion and sex. So much for the sexism and racism they claim to face—they actually get preferential treatment. Also, while they are indeed proud of being American, it is hyphenated pride. In their imagination they would want to remould America into the image of their tribal affiliation, which would be an abomination to the idea of America…

In today’s America, while everyone is allowed to be proud of his religion, race, and the hellholes he or his parents left behind, there is one group of people who are expected to feel guilty about their race. These are people of European origin…

In the land of the free, today any accusation against people of European origin for being racist is all that it takes to destroy their career and social life…

People of north European origin are by far the least racist and least sexist people on the planet, the reason why everyone from the around the world wants to come to places run by them…

America is indeed a melting-pot but only for those who want to assimilate. Because people are tribal, it is likely the most ghettoized country in the West…

Letting lack of gratitude be allowed, Third World culture, customs and religions be honored in the guise of multi-culturalism, and colored people being given preferential treatment is racism of low-expectations. In other words, America actively infantilizes people who are not of European origin. This is not benign, innocent racism. Given that very soon 50% of America will be of non-European origin, politics of America will turn sharply to the Left, once Trump is gone. There is too much inertia to stop the inevitable. The US will likely become the first western country to destroy itself…

New York Times: Lawns Are Symbols of Racism and Bad for Global Warming

Posted by M. C. on August 14, 2019

While this NYT article is a waste of time to read I present it a symbol of how ridiculous the NYT and lamestream media has become.

Just when you think the NYT couldn’t get any worse…

It would be easier to list anything that is now not racist.

The NYT forgot to mention Russia. An update is no doubt forthcoming.

https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/08/13/new-york-times-lawns-are-symbols-of-racism-and-bad-for-global-warming/

by Penny Starr

While most Americans are spending time this summer enjoying the sun in the comfort of their houses’ yards, the New York Times is out with a new exposé on how lawn care is problematic, once viewed through the lens of social justice.

Lawns are contributing to pollution and climate change, asserts narrator David Botti, and their origins are far from woke, in a seven-minute video on the history of American lawns.

Botti says lawns are part of the “colonizing of America,” which transformed the landscape from “pristine wilderness” to “identical rows of manicured nature.”

“These lawns come on the backs of slaves,” he continues, zooming in on a painting of George Washington in a field to highlight men cutting the grass with scythes. “It’s grueling, endless work.”

“By the 1870s we also see American culture slowly start to embrace lawns for the privileged masses,” he states.

The video explains that the perfect lawn is associated with being a model citizen, how the first sprinkler was invented in 1871, and about the advent of “so-called trade cards” that “advertised the hell out of lawn and garden products.”

The Times also refers to the work of historian Ted Steinberg, who calls lawns the “outdoor expression of ’50s conformism.”

To drive home the point, he inserts vintage footage of two women being interviewed in their yards talking about how they moved to their communities to live exclusively near other white people. Neither of them says anything about desiring, having, or maintaining a lawn…

Mass Shootings and Political Misuse of Them Have Unintended Consequences – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on August 7, 2019

In other words, trust, an important cement in any society, is everywhere being erased. 

When trust is erased, things fall apart. 

When things fall apart, mass violence is the consequence.

The El Paso shooter’s manifesto, kept from you by the sordid presstitutes, is here:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/08/05/the-el-paso-shooters-manifesto/

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/08/05/mass-shootings-and-responses-to-them-have-unintended-consequences/

Paul Craig Roberts

The unintended consequences of mass shootings and the attempts to use these shootings for various agendas can be far worse than the shootings themselves and ultimately endanger far more people.

I was listening to NPR this morning prior to President Trump’s 10 AM EST address on the shootings.  NPR set Trump up for blame.  Trump opposes illegal immigration and spoke of the 20,000 person caravan as “an invasion.”  And so forth.  And it wasn’t just NPR.  As USA reported, while joining in the blame trump orchestration, “Media outlets around the country, and around the world, decried his [Trump’s] role in inspiring a shooter who gunned down 20 people.” US Rep. Veronica Escobar (D,TX) said:  “All of this has happened because Hispanic people have been dehumanized. They have been dehumanized by the president, by his enablers, by other politicians.”

Rep. Escobar did not explain why and how a country’s defense of its borders constitutes dehumanization of those that the law requires to be kept out.  Is the President of the United States, who is sworn to enforce the laws and Constitution of the US, supposed to violate the law?  If the American people want open borders, they should inform their representatives and get a law passed that abolishes border controls.  If Hispanics are dehumanized by being kept out, so are Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians, and Venezuelans, all people declared to be national security threats to the US which employs a massive armed force to be sure these threats don’t invade us. Just imagine how we dehumanized the Japanese and Germans during World War II by keeping them from invading us…

We are unlikely to discover the real causes as long as shootings are used to advance agendas.  What is important is not the facts but the advancement of agendas.

Whereas the Dayton shooter wants to kill fascists, which presumably includes white supremacists, the El Paso shooter is portrayed as a white supremacist who hates Hispanics.  Even President Trump has bought into this characterization of the shooter.  However, the El Paso shooter’s manifesto doesn’t support this characterization of his motives. He is concerned that the core population of his country is being marginalized and dispossessed by several developments including automation and illegal immigrants and their demands.  It so happens that the current illegal immigrants are from south of the border, but he doesn’t hate them because they are Hispanic.  If they were coming from Asia, or Africa or a different planet, he would see it as the same problem. To the shooter, it is not a problem of hate but of fact. There are more people than there are jobs.

He addresses the issue that his actions will be blasted “as the sole result of racism and hatred of other countries.”  He blames this response on American hypocrites, largely white people, who “support imperialistic wars that have caused the loss of tens of thousands of American lives and untold numbers of civilian lives. The argument that mass murder is okay when it is state sanctioned is absurd. Our government has killed a whole lot more people for a whole lot less.”

One of the El Paso shooter’s concerns with immigration is that “continued immigration will make one of the biggest issues of our time, automation, so much worse. Some sources say that in under two decades, half of American jobs will be lost to it. . . . So it makes no sense to keep on letting millions of illegal or legal immigrants flood into the United States.”  This logical conclusion together with betrayal by America’s white leaders and the damage done to Americans by the corporations are the political and economic reasons he gives for his attack. “My motives for this attack are not at all personal.”  In other words, the attack does not stem from his hatred of Hispanic immigrants but from the adverse consequences for American citizens of mass immigration from wherever.

He also writes in his manifesto that “the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific.  Many have been here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build  our country.”

As for being inspired by Trump to murder immigrants, the El Paso shooter writes: “My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I [am] putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.” Truer words were never spoken.

The fact that the El Paso shooter’s manifesto does not support the storyline of the media is the reason the media refuses to publish the manifesto and why the Drudge Report was denounced for posting the manifesto.  The shooter’s manifesto contradicts the controlled explanation of the event… Read the rest of this entry »

Nolte: ‘New York Times’ Changes Trump Headline to Appease Far-Left Extremists

The far-left New York Times caved to the leftist Twitter mob with a major switch in headlines between its first and second editions.

The first print edition’s headline read, “Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism.”

But after the Blue Checkmark Mafia freaked out, the Times caved with a late edition headline that reads, “Assailing Hate But Not Guns.”

New York Times print editor Tom Jolly tweeted out the original edition.

Within an hour, through, the Times had caved to the left’s demand that President Trump never-ever-ever receive even a neutral headline.

After the original edition was revealed, and even though we are constantly told that criticizing the media is a form of violence, the Times was assaulted through social media by all the usual suspects.

And because there is no appeasing the left, as of this writing, #CancelNYT is still trending on Twitter and still filled with angry and deeply unhappy Trump-haters threatening to either cancel their New York Times subscriptions, or bragging that they already have.

CNN’s Joan Walsh one of those who announced her cancellation.

Even flailing and failing Democrat presidential candidate Paddy O’Rourke got into the dangerous business of criticizing the media.

This all proves three things we already knew…

1) The left is totally fine with threatening and attacking the media … if those attacks come from the left.

2) The New York Times is not an independent news organization with principles and integrity. Rather, its business model is comfort food for leftists, a business model it’s not willing to risk under any circumstance.

3) These bitter Blue on Blue battles are a thing of beauty…

Race Hustle – Kunstler

Posted by M. C. on August 3, 2019

https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/race-hustle/

James Howard Kunstler

After two double rounds of Democratic Party debates, one thing is for sure: the characters onstage are followers, not leaders, and they’re following each other off a cliff like so many Wile E. Coyotes, while the Golden Golem of Greatness streaks, beeps, and tweets across the buzzard flats below like the fabled Roadrunner.

In an epic and bizarre case of mimesis, the Democratic Party is mau-mauing itself into America’s political slum, complete with a rank-and-file demographic dependent on government largesse and an infestation of bad ideas, like the scurrying rats and cockroaches of the ghettos they pander to so relentlessly. The candidates themselves are so terrified of being a few syllables away from getting branded with the scarlet “R” on their foreheads — according to the rules of Wokesterism — that they blindly submit to any idiotic Simon Says command, such as raising their hands in support of free medical services for illegal immigrants, to signal their racial uprightness and sensitivity.

How are the actual city ghettos and their denizens doing after half a century of Democratic Party rescue operations? Not so well, the Golden Golem averred last week about Baltimore, igniting a firestorm of grievance and objurgation from the political ghetto. Isn’t the point exactly that the people, and the place where they live, are not doing any better despite decades of federal programs, household assistance, affirmative action, and every other attempt to (theoretically) improve their existence? And isn’t the heart of the matter the desperate shame and chagrin of Democrats that none of this has worked?

It hasn’t worked… so, do more of it! That’s the Democratic Party’s neurotic strategy for winning the hearts and minds of this republic. Driving men out of households via the welfare rules that don’t allow “a man in the house,” and destroying family formation wasn’t bad enough. The Democratic party has spent the past three years vilifying and demonizing men and their “toxic masculinity,” and retailing the insane multiplication of “genders’ in a bad faith attempt to manufacture sexual “diversity” — with the net effect of negating all previous understandings of the relations between men and women. Newsflash: that’s not going to work, either.

The shriekings of “racism” aren’t helping much anymore. Few observers have missed the fact that the city of Baltimore has been run by an African American city hall (Mayor, Police Chief, District Attorney) for many years, with over a billion dollars in additional federal assistance. So, if political power is the answer, how’s that working out? Add some extra shrieking about “white privilege” to explain the situation? How does “white privilege” explain the fact that 86 percent of kids in Baltimore primary schools can’t read and 89 percent can’t do arithmetic to grade level? This, despite the fact that at $15,564 per pupil, Baltimore is fourth highest-spending per student of the 100 largest school districts in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Maybe becoming the party of a national race hustle isn’t such a good idea. The race hustle is wearing out its welcome in American politics, and the more the Democratic Party resorts to race hustling as its chief strategy, the sooner the party will go extinct. That is, if it doesn’t incite some kind of civil war first. Cue the cry, “That’s racist!”

Maybe there is a whole range of human values and human behaviors that have nothing to do with race — like reading to small children and helping them learn the English language so they don’t grow into adults who have to say “know what I mean?” every other sentence because they’ve barely acquired enough language skill themselves to know what they mean. Maybe there’s something called an American common culture that contains values and behaviors worth emulating rather than opposing. Maybe “multiculturalism” wasn’t such a good idea after all. Maybe ghetto culture is not such a precious foundation for a successful life. Maybe the Democratic Party should move out of the ghetto it’s built for itself.

‘Noose’ Which Sent UMich Dean On Racism Tirade Turns Out To Be Fishing Knot Practice | Zero Hedge

Posted by M. C. on July 21, 2019

I wonder when neckties will be banned?

A cry for attention? Very sad.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-20/noose-which-sent-umich-dean-racism-tirade-turns-out-be-fishing-knot-practice

A ‘noose’ found last month at the University of Michigan Medical School turns out to have been a practice knot used in fishing after an employee came forward to ‘clear the air,’ according to MLive.

An investigation by UM’s Division of Public Safety and Security concluded the spool rope used for medical procedures was being used by a person on a break to practice tying a “Uni Knot,” which is a type of knot used for fishing. After the spool was returned to the storage area, the knot was still in place and discovered the following day by an employee. –MLive

The ‘noose’ was fashioned out of a rope typically used for traction following surgical procedures, according to DPSS Director of Strategic Communications Heather Young, who noted that the loose end of the rope was tied in the knot while still connected to the spool.

Not one to hedge his language amid an ongoing investigation, UM Medical School Dean Marschall Runge said in an employee email following the June 20 discovery of the ‘noose’: “Yesterday, in one of our hospitals, a noose — a symbol of hate and discrimination — was found at the work station of two of our employees,” adding “We have taken immediate action to have this investigated as both an act of discrimination and a criminal act of ethnic intimidation. This act of hate violates all of the values that we hold dear and will not be tolerated.”

‘It was the friends we made along the way…’

Without acknowledging that he participated in ‘sewing racial discord’ with false assumptions, Runge now says that while the incident has affected the entire community, it united people in their hatred of hate (and hate-shaped fishing knots?)…

In short, the whole noose incident managed to bring the community together. And in case you’re interested in learning the Uni Knot, see below:

The Great Awokening Conspiracy Theory – Taki’s Magazine – Taki’s Magazine

Posted by M. C. on June 14, 2019

https://www.takimag.com/article/the-great-awokening-conspiracy-theory/print

by Steve Sailer

What accounts for The Great Awokening that began in roughly 2013? Why did vast numbers of white Democrats suddenly subscribe to theories that only Grievance Studies majors took seriously before?

Over the past few weeks, two academics working separately, Zach Goldberg and David Rozado, have documented how extremist The New York Times, once known as The Gray Lady for its decorum, became during Obama’s second term…

Goldberg and Rozado are more or less extending to a much larger scale the methodology I invented for my 2018 Taki’s Magazine column “The Emmett Till Effect.” I pointed out that you could graph The New York Times’ use of politically tendentious terms to measure how hard the propaganda machine was pushing particular themes.

For example, Emmett Till was a black teenager murdered in the South in 1955 by whites, who were acquitted due to their white privilege. In 1980, the Times didn’t see any reason to mention Till, his having been dead for 25 years, whereas in 1990 his name came up twice, and in 2000 four times. But by 2017, a full 62 years after his tragic death, the name “Emmett Till” was referenced 72 times.

This winter, for example, the Times responded to the embarrassing Jussie Smollett hate hoax by cranking up the Emmett Till hubbub once again.

I’ve long argued that the chief problem of media bias is not “fake news,” but instead how The Establishment prioritizes what is news and what isn’t, what is emphasized in The Narrative and what is skimmed over. There’s an endless abundance of events in this world, so what makes the headlines versus what is relegated to the police blotter are politically important decisions.

To people who succumb to The New York Times’ worldview, Emmett Till is always late-breaking news.

Why? Because of course you hear about Emmett Till all the time! That’s because white privilege is the great issue of the current year.

And why is white privilege our central mania? Because of Emmett Till! Haven’t you ever heard of him?

It’s a seamless web of circular logic…

For example, according to Rozado’s new Media Analytics website, which graphs how often a word appeared in the Times from 1970 to 2017, the word “trump” only began to increase in 2015, before shooting up to insane levels by 2017.

In contrast, the recent low point for usage of the word “racism” was that innocent year of 2011. But then, according to Rozado, the NYT began to use “racism” about 20 percent more often in each year from 2012 through 2014, followed by huge jumps in 2015 and 2016. By 2015, “racism” as a percentage of the total words printed in The New York Times was appearing three times as often as in 2011.

Was racism really three times as bad in 2015 as in 2011? Of course not. The New York Times had merely decided to honk the racism horn three times as loudly.

Why?

That’s a big question. I can think of quite a few possible answers, but I don’t know which one was most important…

In his new Tablet article, “America’s White Saviors,” Goldberg points the finger at the rise of social media:

Thus, by all indications, the first half of this decade appears to have been a watershed for white liberal racial consciousness. The picture that emerges from the various points of data is one in which white liberals and social media created a kind of outrage feedback loop. White liberals started spending ever increasing shares of their time in a medium—social media and internet news sites—at the same moment that, for multiple reasons, that medium produced a higher volume of race-related moral outrage stories relative to other forms of journalism.

But was lowly social media the driving force? Or was it that the old prestige media, such as The New York Times, was using its Megaphone to promote the dumbest ideas on social media? For example, the Trayvon and Ferguson fiascos were due to The Establishment taking Black Twitter seriously.

Now, you know and I know that you can’t trust Black Twitter to get a story straight. But has The New York Times learned that lesson yet? If you were an NYT editor, would you dare point out that excited black people on Twitter have an unfortunate record of getting stories disastrously wrong? Or is that just laying your neck on the chopping block for your ambitious underlings?

Another possibility that has been mooted is that the birth of wokeness, which I recall as beginning in early 2012 with Obama declaring Trayvon to look like the son he never had (although in reality the triracial George Zimmerman looked far more like the son Obama might have had with his half-white/half-Asian girlfriend Sheila Miyoshi Jager) was a devious response to Occupy Wall Street in late 2011…

For anybody interested in researching trending fads among Woke Capital, Davos generates vast numbers of web pages annually. But just don’t ask me to read through them. One look at Davos’ annual themes, such as 2013’s “resilient dynamism” (or perhaps “dynamic resilience,” I forget), and my eyes glaze over.

So I shall leave that inquiry to scholars more resilient and/or dynamic than me.

Fascism Has Always Been An Enemy of Private Property | Mises Wire

Posted by M. C. on June 3, 2019

https://mises.org/wire/fascism-has-always-been-enemy-private-property

The Left and mainstream political science identify Italian fascism and German national socialism as a right-wing ideology. Their motivation is clear — they do not want to be associated with regimes that brought civilization the horror and suffering of an unprecedented scale. The Left traditionally substantiates their point of view with two theoretical propositions. First of all, fascism and Nazism do not belong to the Left because those regimes did not institute total collective ownership on means of production as Marx prescribed. Secondly, nationalism and racism have traditionally been features of the Right, whereas the Left is perceived to be internationalist in nature.

Private Ownership in Name Only

Let us consider the first postulate about the failure of these regimes to carry out total socialization of private property. Thus, Stalin pointed out in his interview to American journalist Roy Howard, “The foundation of the [socialism] society is public property: state, i.e., national, and co-operative, collective farm property. Neither Italian fascism nor German National-‘socialism’ has anything in common with such a society. Primarily, this is because the private ownership of the factories and works, of the land, the banks, transport, etc. has remained intact, and, therefore, capitalism remains in full force in Germany and Italy.” That has been the notorious argument of Marxian socialists.

The great Ludwig von Mises attacked logical inferences of the Left by pointing out that in non-Marxian socialist regimes the private property was de jure allowed, but de facto the state was the principal owner of the means of production. “If the State takes the power of disposal from the owner piecemeal, by extending its influence over production; if its power to determine what direction production shall be, is increased, then the owner is left at last with nothing except the empty name of ownership, and property has passed into the hands of the State”, wrote Mises in Socialism.

Indisputably, his arguments authentically describe real economic affairs under these regimes. Indeed, entrepreneurs were deprived of the free commodity market, labor market, and international money market; the state established wage and price controls, and overall influenced all stages of production, distribution, and consumption. However, it should be recognized that Mises’s arguments do not find the proper understanding and effect in modern realities.

The thing is, the twentieth century was cracked by two bloody World Wars and the prolonged Cold War. Only a state can wage World Wars as it can gather and manage the necessary financial, economic, and people resources. Thus, for the last century, the state had been very firmly fixed in the economic sphere of society, and it reluctantly gave up its position. After all, many generations of people live in conditions where the state dictates the conditions of the economy. They do not even suspect that the state and the economy may have different relations. Contemporary industrial countries are guilty of conducting policies that resemble ones from the cookbooks of Italian and German governments. Indeed, the state has put in place various regulations that adversely affect the business and economy as a whole, including, among other things, control over the minimum wage, the establishment of social programs that are fueled by the substantial redistribution of wealth, and many other measures.

Mises pointed out that the state controlled the economic life, conducting various measures of coercion. He is undoubtedly right; however, the socialist regimes have utilized both methods: coercion and persuasion, and the latter occupied even more prominent importance. In contemporary settings, the outright collectivist indoctrinations in educational institutions became a primary form of persuasion…

Nationalism Is Not Unique to the Right

The supposed exclusive nationalism and racism of the Right is a political myth propelled by the vicious leftist propaganda. It is known that the founders of Marxism were xenophobes that adhered to the Hegelian division of nations to historical and non-historical. The founder of revolutionary syndicalism Sorel was an ardent anti-Semite. Some currents of socialism preached outright chauvinism; others used internationalist rhetoric in order to gain political benefits. Moreover, nationalism was not a factor that divided the political spectrum into the Left-Right wings at the beginning of the 20th century. Instead, it was the attitude to property rights (or antagonism between capital and labor, in Marxian terms) that divided the political spectrum. Therefore, nationalism might be inherent in various political philosophies, in both the defenders of capital and the proponents of labor…

Italian Fascism and German Nazism constitute anti-materialist, anti-positivist current of the socialist movement, which was extremely hostile toward ideas of Marxism and democratic socialism. Nevertheless, they shared a continuum bench of the socialist team. Communists occupy the extreme left, followed by the Social Democrats; the right flank belongs to fascists and Nazis — they are the right wing of the Left.
