The Economist: The World's Poor Are Eating More Meat Which Means They'll Live Longer and Healthier Lives But It's Very Sad Because of Global Warming
Plus: Slavery-Shaming from the New York Times and Nation of Islam

No, really. They're against the world's poor having healthy food.



It's not just the Economist, obviously. Business Insider also attacked those getting healthy on a keto diet because that also makes the Earth Goddess Maia cry.



And there's even more food-shaming.

The New York Times filed another entry in its campaign to make Race Reparations a viable position for Democrats to take by declaring that Sugar = Slavery.



Now that is, you know, based in fact. Sugar was one of the nastiest crops to harvest (I'm not sure why; it might just be due to the hot, wet conditions necessary for cane sugar cultivation), and as most free people did not want to do it, slaves were forced to work the sugar fields.

I'm not sure what we're supposed to take from this, though. We've all heard of the "Triangle Trade" -- sugar, slaves, rum. What is "news" in this?

There is no "news." This is just, as Doc Zero said, "battlespace preparation" for the 2020 Orangemanbad elections.

The article isn't terrible, except for its obvious intention as a piece of agitprop which pretends to illuminate slavery, while actually obscuring it.

Slavery is evil, of course.

This piece presents it as a uniquely white evil, as part of the battlespace preparation for next year's elections.

Is it, though?

Of course not. Watch this very neat (quite long but worth it) Lindybiege article about "The White Headhunter."

It's a great and interesting story in its own right, but illustrates a few points being left out of the New York Times' polticization of slavery.

The White Headhunter of the book's name is called Reston. He is enslaved himself -- several times.

First his landlord drugs him and sells him to a ship captain.

The ship captain intends to bring workers -- I mean, slaves -- to a remote and uninhabitable island in the middle of nowhere in the Pacific. He needs slaves, because the work he has planned for his "workers" -- mining guano, birdshit, by the ton -- is an unpleasant and unhealthy job that free men don't want to do.

So he is forced upon a ship to become a slave.

However, he escapes in one of the ship's boats.

After a harrowing time of starvation at sea, he lands upon a Pacific island inhabited, as Pacific islands tend to be, by Pacific islanders.

They are nonwhite.

They immediately enslave him, for no other reason than that he is alone and weak and they are many and powerful. They enslave him because they can.

He serves as a slave to the chief for a time, trying to prove his usefulness so that they do not eat him.

One job he does for them is translate discussions between the chief and European ship captains who come to call on the island.

The captains tell the islands' chiefs that if they give them men to work the dangerous, dirty mines of Australia, they will not only pay the men good wages, but will also pay the chiefs. First, with an upfront payment of rifles and steel axes and other Western goods of great value, and then even more when the men's term of service is up.

But this is a lie. The captains are blackbirders -- that means they are slavers, but they don't use force, at least not at first, to captures slaves.

Rather they enslave people through trickery and false promises. Later, if the enslaved people try to escape or revolt, then they'll use force.

They're told they will work in the mines for five years (or whatever) for wages; in fact they'll be slaves for as long as they have the physical ability to dig.

Now notice here that the island chiefs -- not white people -- are assisting in delivering over slaves to the blackbirders.

Do they know the men they're sending away will not be well-paid workers but rather slaves? Well, they probably have some idea. After all -- the moment a person of a different race lands on their shores, they enslave them.

When they fight other islanders and capture enemies, they enslave them.

So the idea that maybe these men that I'm selling to these captains are going to be enslaved is something that would probably occur to them.

So we have in this story:

A white landlord drugging a white man to "shanghai" him into slavery;

nonwhite Pacific Islanders enslaving that white man after he escapes his white slavers;

those nonwhite Pacific Islanders enslaving other Pacific Islanders and selling their own people -- their low-status men who are not part of the chief's family and not especially powerful in the tribe -- into slavery by whites.

Slavery is not a white scourge; it's a human scourge. Throughout history, until very recent times, people took slaves whenever they had the power to do so.

Blaming whites alone for this is ahistorical and nothing more than racial political agitation. It's not that whites were particularly intent on enslaving people; it's that whites developed ships and steel weapons more at a faster pace than many others, and thus had the power to do what powerful humans had done throughout history -- enslave weaker peoples.

It's also a bit strange that this author, a grandson of Elijah Mohammad of the Nation of Islam, would deign to lecture anyone about the evils of slavery without first addressing the salient historical fact that Muslims and the Arabic Middle East have had quite a long history of enslaving people themselves, and that history extends well into the 20th Century.

Why date the start of slavery in 1619? It most assuredly did not start there.

And it didn't start in America, or even in Europe. It started long before Europe was well-settled by human beings.

But the New York Times is going to pretend history started there, just as it pretends the number of deaths due to terrorist attacks starts conveniently the day after 9/11.

Like most historical topics, slavery is a story with many villains and only some heroes, and it does not fit neatly into anyone's political fairy tale.

It tells us more about humanity than about the political villain of the day -- nasty Republicans who never owned slaves and 99% of whom aren't even descended from anyone who did.

The topic cannot be used for gross political purposes.

Except if you really need it to, and you have a deep-pocketed Ruling Class corporation to fund the project to do so.

And do watch that video when you get the chance. It's terrific. I downloaded the book but haven't read it yet.

Let's put it this way: the time period in which the world had no slaves is a tiny, tiny percentage of human history compared to the time period when people had slaves.

And the percentage of people who never owned slaves is a tiny tiny number compared to the percentage who did. Everywhere. Slavery was, for the bulk of human existence, the method of getting jobs you didn't want to do, done. Then, we had capitalism which hired people and paid them to do that. And finally now we have machines to do that crap.

52 Oh, shit, this turned out to be a slavery thread. I was going to rant about sugar.

Well, I will anyway because it's about the evils of Big Corn and protectionism.

We protect sugar in this country. That is there are import tariffs that price it out of competition from HFCS. This benefits a small number of interlocked families in Florida who grow sugar with near slave labor of imported Jamaicans.

It moved candy manufacturer Mars to Canada because while there are import duties on sugar there are not on candy made of sugar.

It means, of course, that we get that nasty slop in our Coca Cola when even Mexicans -- Mexicans!! -- get sugar in their Coke.

Big Corn gets protection because of the Iowa caucuses and we get get ethanol that destroys small motors, crappy Coke, and Florida slavery.

Free trade good. Tariffs bad.

80 Same thing happened in Africa. The Portuguese and Spanish didn't start Black slavery in Africa. They came upon the trade that was already in action run by the Kings of the various tribes in the locale and the Arab/Muslim slave traders.

It was an up and running concern. Not at the level that could be reached when they started to colonize the various Islands of the Caribbean.

And of particular note is that slaves are mentioned quite often in the Bible. In fact they are mentioned in the first book. Egyptians were noted for enslaving folks. They enslaved the Nubians who lived up stream on the Nile. There's also records of slavery in Persia dating long long time ago.

That the media can get away with this is the fact that the Democrats/left have purposely dumbed down our educational "system" to produce citizens who can barely write and know little of this country's history let alone Ancient History.

It's almost as if they have a plan.

84 1619 is a dumb choice, one only an academic could love. Even if you restrict the field to the New World, Spain kicked off slavery in it's holdings early in the 1500's. In fact they were the ones who first started transporting black Africans over to work their plantations. The Spanish tried enslaving the indigenous Indians they found first (it of course would have made more sense to use the people who were already there) but due to disease and lack of physical endurance, the Spaniards managed to kill off almost all of their native populations with their attempts. (in places like Puerto Rico, their may no descendants of the original inhabitants left)

The Spaniards found that Central Africans were the only people with the physical prowess and the heat tolerance to be able to survive the harsh working conditions, and that's how they started being transported to the new world. Eventually growers in the southern English colonies picked up on what the Spanish had already been doing for a century or so.

114 I'm sure that it won't take the New York Times long to trot out the theory, recently popularized by Ta-Nehisi Coates, that all wealth in the United States exists because black people were and are brutally oppressed. (This has been a belief among black nationalists for decades.)

You have a nice house and a nice car? You only have these things because the faces of black people have been ground into the dirt for centuries. This is why reparations are required.

There may be a few holes in the theory - it is unclear how oppressing 12% of the population made 88% of the population wealthy. It also doesn't explain Canada, which is about as affluent as the United States, despite a relative lack of black people to oppress, and doesn't explain that the Intermountain West is about as affluent as the rest of the country, again without a large number lack of black people to oppress.

No matter - I'm sure this won't stop the NYT.

The whole project isn't to address slavery per se but to delegitimize America per se.

This is not really true, or at least not the whole truth. In the 18th and 19th century it was understood ( rightly and wrongly for complex reasons) that Africans were better suited to working in very hot conditions than Europeans. The sun and skin color is a part of it, but resistance (built up and genetic) to malaria was a big part of it.

It's not that Europeans wouldn't do those jobs, but certainly free people would not travel to the jungle to do them since for most of them it would have been a sure death from disease.

It's astounding what it's in and how much of it is there. Gotta be one of the big causes of the current obesity problem.

168 That's not entirely false but the sugar has a definite metabolic effect that, say, lettuce does not. Sugar stores in your body, it is turned into fat.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at August 21, 2019 07:05 PM (KZzsI)


Excess calories are turned into fat, regardless of the source of those calories.

Recall that fat, a triacyl glyceride, is a lipid (i.e., a highly reduced compound, not far off of being a hydrocarbon), whereas sugar is a carbohydrate (i.e., of the empirical formula (CH2O)n), so producing fat from sugar requires a lot of biosynthetic activity to reduce a carbohydrate to a fat. (Think making gasoline from sugar, to a crude approximation.)

The difference between sugar and lettuce is that there are virtually no calories (or nutrients, for that matter) in lettuce. It's basically water. You'd have to eat a ton of it to get the requisite caloric intake for any physical activity.

technically true but so simplified and missing important points as to be "false" in the gestalt.

If there was a type of food that, let's say, caused your body to overproduce insulin and thus begin fat storage before the nutrition even had a chance to be used for movement or other biological functions, well, that food would make a lot more "excess" calories than would, for example, four eggs.

DHS Announces New Rule Ending "Catch and Release," Will Permit Families to be Detained Together Until Their Immigration Hearings

So we're not going to "separate families" any longer.

Of course, the left and the NeverTrumpers (but I repeat myself) are now complaining about not separating children from parents.

You'd almost start to think that it's not "the horror of family separation" they oppose, but rather any border enforcement and any deportation of illegals.

You'd almost think that they know it's politically unpopular to announce their actual goal of Open Borders, so they instead pick and paw at every tiny aspect of border enforcement so they can agitate for Open Borders without admitting they're doing so.

To address the unprecedented flow of families across the Southwest border, the Trump administration on Wednesday announced regulations that will allow families to be detained together, pending disposition of their immigration hearings.

The goal is to end "catch and release." Asylum-seeking families will no longer be released into the United States with a promise to appear in immigration court -- promises that are mostly not kept, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan noted.

...

Under the current interpretation of the Flores settlement, families with minor children must be released within 20 days, on a promise to appear for their hearings, which may take years to happen.

"The Flores settlement is operationally outdated and does not respond to the current immigration crisis," McAleenan told the news conference.

62 There is actually a name for the strategy, in academia:

Problematicization.

It originally applied only to literature, and meant that the goal of reading any work is to finding something offensive or un_PC about it -- i.e. to "Problematicize" the work -- and then whine and complain about it.

In the old days, students would reach authors to appreciate their skill and beauty. Now, the only reason to read any (dead white male) author is to "problematicize" their work, i.e. Shakespeare is a sexist, so-and-so is racist, so-and-so is homophobic, etc. etc.

But now that principle has been expanded and is applied to EVERYTHING -- i.e. the goal of the modern academic leftist is to look at ANYTHING -- any instiution, person, behavior, creation, idea, rule, theory, etc. etc. -- and "problematicize" it, i.e. find what's wrong with it and then whine about the wrongness.

In this instance, if Trump separates families, that's a problem. If Trump keeps families together, then that's a problem too. If Trump does anything, that's a problem, and if he does the opposite thing -- also a problem. Etc. etc.

Consequently, the left, and their opinions and utterances, are not to be taken seriously, or even noticed. They, and their statements, are pure malevolence.

Don't forget the complete failure on the appropriations front - Congress has effectively thwarted/zeroed Trump's central policy objective [restoring rule of law at the border and in immigration], without even a hint of "politics" or a price to pay - so it goes beyond bad personnel at relevant agencies, which has been part of the problem.


"sanctuary" lawlessness, an outrage that is now starting to rack up amazing costs in mayhem, child rape, murder, homicide, etc., has doubled [# of jurisdictions] since the enTrumpenation. A pathetic pin-prick $ response - withholding LE grants - has been the sole "response".

---
Recall that Trump was running after eight years of President Obama. Those eight years saw the federal government attempt to force nuns, literally the Little Sisters of the Poor, to violate their consciences and fund birth control. Obama took 'em to court over that. The eight years of Obama saw activist leftists haul Christian cake bakers to court and destroy their livelihood. The eight years of Obama saw a very emboldened left vent its hatred for everyone to their right, and evangelicals knew we were in their crosshairs. They went after Christian-owned Hobby Lobby, they used our tax dollars to fund abortion, they made their disdain for our faith abundantly clear. The Democrats' 2016 appeal to us amounted to "Vote for us, you stupid, racist, bucktoothed haters!"

146 It's useful to note why the original Posse Comitatus law was passed. In 1878, the country was sick of the corruption that had become endemic under the Radical Republicans, who of course had morphed into the Rapacious Robber Republicans, and the southern states were all finally brought back into the fold, as Reconstruction ended. One of the first things the Southern States demanded after re-entry was that the US stop using Federal Troops to enforce the law in the South, which they had been doing for 13 years. So the Posse Comitatus law was the result.

Of course it might have been nice to go on the offensive from the start, so that the Ryan/McConnell GOP could have had its complicity and uselessness highlighted for future political purposes. If one planned to re-introduce politics to immigration rule of law, that is.

Res ipsa, as others have pointed out, means literally the thing speaks for itself.

What it means is that absent some neglence on the part of the person who had control of the "thing," the injury would not have occurred. The classic example is a barrel falling from an elevated storage area into the street. Since that can't happen by itself (England didn't have many earthquakes back in the 1400-1800s), the fact that there was an accident all by itself shows someone was negligent.

Howie Carr explained the whole Greenland thing.

Denmark was playing games and talking shit about letting other countries build bases in Greenland.

The point of offering to buy Greenland was to force Denmark to publicly state It Is Not For Sale.

You see, President Trump out-maneuevered the Danes and the Dane realized they got played. So the stupid Danish PM woman prrobably said nasty things to our president, to which President Trump responded by canceling his visit.

13 It's interesting how Pizza Gate, Wikileaks, the DNC "hack, Seth Rich, Russian Collusion and now Epstein are all very much connected by six degrees of separation (or less).

It's the content of the Clinton and Podesta e-mails that inform part of the Pizza Gate scandal, leaked e-mails that Seth Rich appears to have died because of. And Russian collusion was created to distract from those very same e-mails and their associated storage and distribution. And Pizza Gate and now Epstein are scandals which both involve child sex trafficking.

25 (From a willowed comment I made yesterday

There is no agreement on how Antifa is pronounced, even among members themselves.

I've heard

-- An-TEE-fah
-- An-TEE-fuh
-- AN-tifa
-- An-tee-FA
-- On-tee-FA
-- ON-tee-fuh
-- 'N-TEE-fuh
-- AN-TEE-FAH (all syllables equal)

In the US, I think the most common pronunciation is

An-TEE-fuh

...but in Europe, the most common is

On-tee-FA

..which, they would argue, is correct, since it's short for "anti-Fascist," so you'd need to emphasize the "Fa" part.

A linguistic conundrum.

What the silly sods don't know is they could denounce Antifa and the thugs will still remain loyal to them.

--------

They're not worried about loyalty - they know that's unshakable.

Antifa operates the way they do precisely because they know they have nothing whatsoever to fear from the forces of law-and-order.

If national Democrat politicians started denouncing Antifa, the local Party leaders would start cracking down, and it would turn down the temperature.

We're at the stage when they want to turn the heat up and up and up until it boils over.

133 Dems should well and truly be alarmed at minorities like blacks and hispanics peeling off from their party and favoring Trump. Those groups have not been feminised and still consider masculinity a positive trait. Getting out there and fighting back is something the GOP has not done in decades. Trump does it fearlessly taking no notice of the media vapors at his "crassness".

Cultures that prefer men to be men don't see anything on the Dem side of politics with 99 genders that appeals, except for free money of course.

I really don't think George Soros is THE Anti Christ, although he seems to be anti-Christ as he declares himself to be a God. He's not declared himself the ruler of the world, convinced people he's man of peace or as far as I know denied the Father and the Son nor has he said he's the true Messiah. The actual anti Christ establishes a 7 year covenant with Israel which he breaks (Daniel: 9) He also has not performed signs and wonders to prove that man is self sufficient. He's not a charismatic figure that people flock to. he looks like a gnome. Soros is a meglomaniac globalist who does a lot of work behind the scenes to subvert democracy and the U.S. I do, however pray that this thorn-the influence of Soros and his children-be removed from our side.

People have been speculating for a long. long time about the identity of the Anti Christ and said he's everyone from Hitler to Barack Obama to Trump to Pope Francis. We may not even recognize him when he comes.

227 Antifa supporters in Portland and elsewhere are launching the lamest boycott ever.

It turns out that Antifa supporters love American professional soccer, probably because it makes them feel proletarian and European.

Increasingly, flags and banners in US soccer stadiums have been displaying the "Iron Front" symbol - three arrows pointed downwards to the left.

Like Antifa itself, the "Iron Front" was created by the pre-war Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands. It is a well-known Antifa symbol.

Well, the men's and women's professional soccer leagues, considering the downsides of becoming known as "Antifa's league", have banned flags and banners with the Iron Front symbol from stadiums.

Well, the Antifa supporters have thrown a fit, of course, and they have launched a boycott - of the concession stands. It would be too much to actually boycott the games themselves, so they are boycotting the overpriced beers at the games instead.

Considering that the women's professional soccer league is perpetually on the verge of financial collapse, it would be hilarious if even this pathetic boycott caused the women's league to collapse.

His number is 666 - because he arrives at the 6th Trump, the 6th Vial and the 6th cup in that chapter. The actual Christ arrives at the 7th Trump, the 7th Vial, and the 7th cup.

Depends on which system of guessing the future you are going with.

381 The actual Christ arrives at the 7th Trump, the 7th Vial, and the 7th cup.

The 7th Trump? Wow, we got a ways to go still.

just to be pedantic "666" is part of the mystic numerology that pops up every now and then in the OT and NT. It was commonly known in the ancient middle east. 1 and 3 are both numbers for God, 4 is the number for Nature and God's creation (4 corners of the Earth, etc), 6 is the number of man as an individual, 7, being 3 and 4, is God and Nature combined, ie perfection, 10 is the number of Mankind on its own (10 fingers, 10 lost tribes) 12 is the number of God's people.

Three 6's together is an individual Man attempting to make himself God, ie the Antichrist. It's worth remembering that the Roman Emperors did legally declare themselves to be gods, and command that they be worshiped.

Pilot: Prince Andrew Flew Aboard the Lolita Express When Jeffrey Epstein's 17-Year-Old "Sex Slave" Was Aboard

If the pilot is telling the truth, this is damning -- private planes aren't big enough for the claim "I never saw her there" to be credible.

And if you saw her -- you didn't... ask a question?

And then you flew with her on the private plane again?

Prince Andrew flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet -- at least twice -- with the disgraced money manager's alleged 17-year-old sex slave Virginia Roberts on board, the pilot claimed.

The royal flew on the late financier’s private jet -- which has also played host to VIP guests including former President Bill Clinton, model Naomi Campbell and sex-scandal-plagued Hollywood star Kevin Spacey -- a number of times, according to a deposition by pilot David Rodgers, 66.

On two of those trips, Roberts -- who now goes by her married name Giuffre -- was also on board, according to the June 3, 2016 legal deposition, released to Giuffre's lawyers in New York 12 days ago. The deposition is among 2,000 court documents relating to a settled defamation case involving Giuffre and British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The revelation marks the first time allegations emerged that both Andrew and Virginia were on Epstein's jet at the same time.

Rolling Stone wants to know: Why is the Washington Post pushing conspiracy theories?

Establishment media figures also got into the game. On the morning of August 10th, Washington Post staffer Carol Leonnig tweeted a link to a news story she co-wrote with three other Washington Post reporters. The story itself was fairly straightforward, reiterating what were then the known facts of Epstein’s death. Leonnig's tweet, however, was less so. "People close to Epstein fear he was murdered," wrote the longtime Post staffer and 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner, citing reports that Epstein had told authorities someone had tried to kill him weeks earlier. "He was described as being in good spirits in recent days. . . ."


...

But perhaps more to the point, the language of the tweet sounded suspiciously similar to the outpouring of conspiracy theories that have appeared following Epstein’s death, from those on the far right speculating that the Clintons were behind it to those on the left who pointed to Trump -- or, more often than not, just vaguely gestured at other unidentified, shadowy forces.

I'll add this: It's not that they're pushing conspiracy theories. It's that the media as a whole has decided that you are deserving of being deplatformed and fired from your job if you spread what the Ruling Class claims to be conspiracy theories.

Alex Jones, for example.

They went after Michael Flynn because his son tweeted about "PizzaGate."

They are branding "conspiracy theories" as essentially a species of White Supremacy.

Meanwhile, this class of supposed anti-conspiracy-theory zealots inflicted the Russia Collusion Conspiracy Theory on the nation for three fucking years.

Equally, they are recategorizing anti-government speech as a type of White Supremacy too. See that scorcher of a piece by Angelo Codevilla in the sidebar.

Yet, any conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein being murdered or deliberately given the privacy and encouragement to kill himself is of course, unavoidably, an "anti-government" idea.

So: Why is the Washington Post permitting one of its reporters not only to trade in conspiracy theories, but even to report on the story about which she is pushing out conspiracy theories?

And, next question:

What do they think is going to happen once people get sick of a nasty, brutalizing Ruling Class forcing harsh penalties on everyday citizens for violating supposed extralegislative laws that they themselves have perfect immunity from?

Ruling Classes that exist entirely to harass and harm the citizenry do not remain Ruling Classes long after the people realize that many of their problems could be solved by removing that class.

30 Let me suggest the following:

Epstein was getting Andrew some high quality tail. Let's presume for the nonce that this tail was legal age.

He is on a plane with a dude who is scoring him this grade A poon, and the guy has this girl on board that looks attractive but could be kinda young - but her age isn't tatooed on her forehead or anything.

He's going to say - whoa, dude, how old is she? Because if she is, oh, 17, I am going to have to ask you to stop setting me up with these hot chicks, okay?

And if the whole American system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of America in general? I put it to you, isn't this an indictment of our entire American society?

93 Have no opinion one way or another on Andrew, but I think it is important to point out his value as the Queen's son, representing her to Commonwealth nations, in trade with England. England has its own international trade through the Commonwealth and does not need the EU for access and the EU could lose some access if Britain leaves.

Don't know or care whether Andrew (a prince, no less) was involved with Epstein beyond hitching rides, but there is a real value in discrediting and sidelining him to the Remoaners and the EU.

In a way, it does. Because instead of all this stuff coming up in one big, well-publicized trial for Epstein, it'll be parceled out in dribs and drabs during a crapload of individual trials of the few miscreants who don't have decent lawyers.

Besides, we all know about the reliability of eyewitnesses. Especially if they have differing memories of the same events.

Killing Epstein (or goading him into suicide, which is what I think really happened) solves a LOT of problems for the elites. The moment his heart stopped, it meant that most of his client list gets off scot-free.

137 120 Jones is kinda like National Enquirer ... which did some good exposes, but to sell their tabloid (I guess) they have to include "Aliens raised my children" ... or other more crazy stuff.


A more sedate Jones was on with Crowder, with some interesting details on the very old culture of getting blackmail material. But he included (maybe true, idk) the claim that many of these people really believe in the Satanic stuff ... or Luciferian ... whatever.


Jones drew these three circles within circles ... the top brass are the inner circle. Guys like Epstein on or two rings out ... makes sense, nothing really new there.

They practice such things. As to whether they believe it, is more speculative. It is historically common for elites to traffic in cults and conspiracies on a lark(and then someone takes the joke a little too far and tries to assassinate the king or something).

138 Had a stunning looking cashier at Wegmans once. I would have sworn she was 20-21.

On the way out of the store I saw the wall of employee scholastic accomplishments that some Wegmans have on a wall near the entrances. Started searching for my nephew's name who worked there and spotted my cashier's name...she was a sophomore in High School. 15 years old, probably. I didn't feel icky, since I only thought she was very cute, not sexy.

143 Apparently BOTH Prince Andrew and his wife, Sarah Ferguson, were "clientele" of Epstein's. He had their private numbers in his little book.

And you just know that the reason the FBI was so hot to trot to get to his Island is because they are/looking for that little book in order to destroy it.

Epstein was blackmailing these people. ALL of them. And now that he's dead, our ruling elite class is going to make sure that the evidence is buried with Epstein.

However, I have been wondering how Prince Andrew can continue to deny having any relations with Roberts (the sex slave) because there is hard evidence that he was in the places where she says he was with her.

What a scumbag.

He may have wanted a more 'presentable' one for his first foray with certain clients.

My speculation is that Jeffy had two main sources of income - selling underage kids to clients, and blackmailing people. For the first trip where he'd collect blackmail material, he may have wanted to hide the underage goods, until people were already stuck in the web.

Yeah I think that's the line where you go from normal to sick: when you think cute and pretty means sexually desirable in children. I always thought Selena Gomez was cute as a button, but that didn't mean I wanted to throw a leg over her. I think kittens and ducklings are cute too, but I don't want to sex them.

Its when you go from "wow she's really pretty" to "and I want to rape her" that you're the monster.

I like being old enough (and gray enough) now that I can compliment a girl without her thinking I'm trying to make a move on her. Its a nice change from the past.

Like I suggested up there, Andrew could easily have been on the plane and not known that this girl was an underage sex slave.

Also possible - that he totally knew and was in on it.

Pilot says yes he was on the plane, but he did not do anything wrong.

I do not arry any particular brief for Andrew or the royals. Just saying that being on the plane at the same time as that girl does not mean he's done something wrong.

granted, but, I would guess he's "dating" girls who also look young -- there's no thrill for a pedophile in a 17 year old who looks totally legal -- and Epstein's reputation was such that you'd get on the plane with certain suspicions.

You see an older dude with a younger girl, who may be 20, may be 17, you going to ask him?

Now let's say he is hooking you up with hawt models. You still going to ask?

And I have to ask again - what exactly did the pilot do about this? He didn't want to touch his paycheck, which I am sure was a nice bump over a regular private pilot salary just to keep his trap shut.

If one reads about the industries they cover, promote, glamourise, and are very much a part of, especially from sources such as CDAN and Vigilant Citizen, it's easy to see why they are so afraid.

You have a life long responsibility as a parent to know where kids are and who they are with. Again, kids can slip away and lie about where you are going. But in my family if you did that you might want to read up on how to live with two broken legs. This guy was an adult and a relatively know quantity in the NY area.

In medieval days they thought that illnesses were due to faeries not liking the way you wore your hair. What is the relevance of bringing up medieval marriage age in this discussion?
Posted by: kallisto at August 21, 2019 04:02 PM (DJFLF)

That the age of 18 is a completely arbitrary cutoff, dependent on our current cultural expectations. We have the luxury of delaying childhood, so we do. That's not to say that what Epstein did is right; he violated all the norms and laws of our society, and deserves his punishment, as do those who exploited women and girls with him. But it shouldn't be a surprise that a girl of 15 can pass for one of 20. For some, there's not that much of a difference, physically.

Posted by: Tom Servo at August 21, 2019 04:07 PM (Kpl3J)

286 People don't like when I say stuff like this and I find I get pushback more than anything but it's what I think:


By the time the Left reveals each stage of their plan (they plan about three years ahead) their mechanisms and countermeasures are already in place and it is essentially too late to do anything about it.


It's another reason Trump freaked them out so badly. Praise to the Lord, he put paid to a *lot* of their nasty plans and simply delayed others. Censorship, deplatforming, money-freezing, general life ruining, and probably jailing and fuck knows what else... was all coming for regular Joe Conservative under President Hillary in the name of "domestic security".


They had designs on NEVER letting the reigns of power go and they had the other party in bed with them to keep us all cozy in our ever shrinking prison. And a media to ignore/inflame it all while they slowly tightened the noose and kept us good and gagged.

And under increasingly vigilant surveillance from Big Tech


And on top of that "all 17 intelligence agencies" were going to back it all up and recommend/require these measures. For the good of the country.


Crazy talk, I know!!!

288 If I hopped on a private plan and saw a girl that
looked about 17 with a chode like Epstein, I'd probably think she's only
there because he's rich, or maybe she's an escort. Of course that's
minus the reputation - knowing what we know about Epstein, yeah, I might
think "this girl's probably not here of her own volition, maybe I
should leave."

291 just for mundane historical fact, it's worth remembering that in
medieval days, it wasn't that unusual for women to have children
starting at age 14. Even some Queens of England did. One of my
longstanding friends from College was born when his mother was 16 and
his father was 17. (They got married 3 months before he was born)

Posted by: Tom Servo at August 21, 2019 03:56 PM (Kpl3J)


Actually, this wasn't the case. The average age of marriage was closer to twenty for young women, and mid to late twenties for men for much of the medieval period. Wealthier women might marry a bit younger, but for most families the cost of a dowry and the resulting loss of help when she left led delays in marriage.

There was an expose about Epstein that had a chapter available to read for free. It started out from a composite underage victim's perspective...definitely showed it was a moth to a flame kind of situation. The composite girl was the child of immigrants, lied to her parents so they wouldn't know she was doing this. Started of as an innocent massage job for good money and then escalates.

302 Meanwhile, this class of supposed anti-conspiracy-theory zealots inflicted the Russia Collusion Conspiracy Theory on the nation for three fucking years.

Equally, they are recategorizing anti-government speech as a type of White Supremacy too. See that scorcher of a piece by Angelo Codevilla in the sidebar.

Yet, any conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein being murdered or deliberately given the privacy and encouragement to kill himself is of course, unavoidably, an "anti-government" idea.

So: Why is the Washington Post permitting one of its reporters not only to trade in conspiracy theories, but even to report on the story about which she is pushing out conspiracy theories?

Posted by Ace of Spades at 03:31 PM Comments 

At this late stage in the game, I would ordinarily tire of people who kept asking obvious questions. But your work as a whole is quite healthy. Especially your conclusion. Well worth reading.

One thing I personally love is that all the people who pooh poohed my previous claims of conspiracy, like Michael Hasting's car bursting into flames, have to reckon with the notion that Pizzagate level crimes are now undeniable. Anyone who denies them or minimizes them is either profoundly ignorant or an obvious shill.

Which begs the question: Is this why Mona Charen is so afraid of Trump? Not even Obamacare is worth this much effort to quash.

If Denmark considers NATO so worthwhile and Russia a worthy enough geopolitical rival that merits an organization such as NATO, they should contribute. They don't contribute? I guess they should get kicked out. Then, Russia can face off with the menacing Danish military.

334 "Within 2 years laws" / Romeo and Juliet laws (sometimes it's 3 years) only apply to, well, people within 2 or 3 years of each other, and they mostly exist so that someone doesn't get in trouble when they "age out" of a relationship before their partner. If you first got together at 15 and 17, it would be silly to punish you once one is 19 and the other is 17.

But none of those laws apply, to my knowledge, to dissemination of images. It's illegal to get naked pictures from a 15 year old even if you're a 16 year old. But it's such an incredibly common thing that I think it also never gets prosecuted.

364 So, let me be clear.

Epstein was a horrible person. He was CONVICTED even if lightly punished.

Lots of famous people hung out with him. There will be dirt.

But this story is very small potatoes. He was on the plane with this girl. The guy who says he was on the plane said he didn't do anything untoward. So, yeah, until the next stuff comes out, this is wea tea.

I will repeat - what is the deal with the pilot? I presume his contract had an NDA. Which is not enforceable for illegal activities. So he was flying Epstein around with someone he knew was an underage sex slave.

And said not one damn thing.

374 Actually, this wasn't the case. The average age of marriage was closer to twenty for young women, and mid to late twenties for men for much of the medieval period. Wealthier women might marry a bit younger, but for most families the cost of a dowry and the resulting loss of help when she left led delays in marriage.

385 Bing: Medieval Times, with parental permission it was legal for boys to marry at 14 and girls at 12.
A betrothal often took place when the prospective bride and groom were as young as 7 years old and in the case of higher nobility many were betrothed as babies. But a marriage was only legal once the marriage had been consummated.

Posted by: 18-1 at August 21, 2019 04:10 PM (3cfl2)

Supposedly rare minerals, but no one has really bothered to explore this. China corners the market on rare minerals. Even if it's a dud, better we own Greenland than China. Buy it first, peek under the hood later.

I had no idea until this week that Greenland being for sale to the chicoms was even an option. Scary.

Seward's folly turned out to be pretty worthwhile...plus screwed it to the Russkies.

But this story is very small potatoes. He was on the plane with this girl. The guy who says he was on the plane said he didn't do anything untoward. So, yeah, until the next stuff comes out, this is wea tea.

I will repeat - what is the deal with the pilot? I presume his contract had an NDA. Which is not enforceable for illegal activities. So he was flying Epstein around with someone he knew was an underage sex slave.

And said not one damn thing.

Legal isn't the same thing as common. Age of consent meant that they were old enough to understand the vows that they would be taking.

And the average lifespan was 38 because of high infant mortality rates. If you made it to your teen years there was a good chance of living to your sixties or longer.

This occurred to me probably because I've recently watched "The White Queen", about the wars of the roses. Margaret Beaufort (the so-called "Red Queen" of the story) became pregnant when she was 13 and gave birth to Henry Tudor, who became Henry VII, just after she turned 14.
Posted by: Tom Servo at August 21, 2019 04:18 PM (Kpl3J)

It certainly happened, usually as the result of political or business arrangements among the upper class. However, it wasn't common even then.

Posted by: Colorado Alex In Exile at August 21, 2019 04:23 PM (wCmLp)







And the arrangements were often made well in advance of the marriage being consummated. For example, Caterina Sforza was engaged to the Count of Forli at the age of 10. He was 20 years old at the time of betrothal. They waited until she was 14 before actually having a marriage ceremony.

There were conflicting stories about the marriage though. He was originally to be married to her older sister, but the sister balked for an unknown reason. One story told by her enemies is that he took Caterina instead because she was willing to enter his bed immediately. The other stories basically hold that the marriage was simply delayed until the then-legal age of 14 for marriage.

Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine's father, was....interesting.

He was a wealthy publisher who was some piece of work. He "fell off his yacht and drowned".

He was a shadowy figure of "international intrigue" and likely some sort of double, triple, or even quadruple agent. No one knew who he was really working for, probably including himself.

He had ties to the KGB, Mossad, and MI-6 and others.

He was buried in Jerusalem, and the funeral was attended by 5 or 6 former heads of the Mossad, and former PM Shamir eulogized him.

So, one could think he was really working for the Mossad, but then that itself might've been a ruse. The Mossad itself could've whacked him.

It was a response to the notion that "14 is halfway to death" based on an average lifespan of 38. The average lifespan was dragged down by childhood mortality, not by deaths in adulthood. If you lived through your childhood years you'd stand a good chance of living to your sixties, so there's no pressing need to marry at 14.

510 Several underage "non nude teen" sites got shut down and their runners jailed in the last few decades. The story is almost always the same; they set up in an area where people are freaking dirt poor, like "we get to eat half a sandwich today between all six of us" poor.

They find cute girls, easy in places like Argentina and Ukraine, Romania, Korea, etc. They set up a model agency, and take tasteful modeling shots, some a little risque, like bikini stuff, but nothing that is outrageous for a model. Then they get to work on the girls. Have some booze. Want to make more money? You sure are pretty, you really are model material. Guys like this kind of picture, show a little shoulder. Maybe this lingerie. Oopsie a little bit slipped out, that's hot you should do that more.

They get money, hide it from their parents, and it builds and builds. Eventually someone traces the location and people down from images. Interpol is good at finding things like "that kind of outlet is only used in this part of the world" and eventually they get busted and the girls are absolutely ruined.

512 That the age of 18 is a completely arbitrary cutoff, dependent on our
current cultural expectations. We have the luxury of delaying
childhood, so we do.

The age of majority is not based solely on cultural expectations though. Scientific research indicates that the human brain is not fully developed until age 18.
Was the voting age determined by cultural expectations?

To your point about a 15 year old appearing to be 21: "And that little girl was me". Had a fifty year old wined and dined me and had his way with me, he would have been a rapist regardless of what I looked like.

517 I guess what I mean is... if you're going on vacation somewhere because the age of "consent" there is 12, then you're disgusting.

If you're *from* somewhere that the age of consent is 12 but you're now in a place where it's 16, and you didn't personally break the law in that place, are you likely to find it appalling?

So the age of consent in England has been 16 for along time, so ought someone from there be horrified that someone is 17? Breaking the law in another country is different. Do we know he did?

David French: Trump Is a Bigot Against Jews For Saying That Jews Who Vote Democrat Are Betraying Other Jews and Israel



A friend snarks: "Trump should've just claimed not supporting Israel compromises Jewish witness. "

When he means is that David French routinely attacks Christians for betraying Christian morality for supporting Trump, i.e., voting Republican.

So it's bigoted when Trump does it, but just Followin' Jesus' Example when French does it.

The Pharisees and the Shep Smith Republicans will be the doom of us.

74 The Democrat/Left complex is either:
1) Pathological
2) Stupid
Or both.

There is only one play that they have, and they refuse to make it. Their *one* play that could result in victory is to ignore Trump and shut up. Don't engage him. When he says something, don't report on it. Just keep reporting the news with their normal spin (things aren't great under a Republican and things are great under a Democrat, always adjusted in real time) and otherwise ignore him.

But they can't (because they're pathological) or won't (because they're stupid) and so keep losing. Trump's message is the one that gets out. They scheme and spin and lie and everything else, but ultimately he's the one setting the agenda. And they can't seem to help stepping on all those rakes he's leaving around everywhere.

Hayek was clear that the Economy was organic. It was made up of people.

People who can be convinced that things are bad, and so won't make investments.

The media, and Dems, are all in on trying to convince the people were are in a poor economy, because they know it will be a self fulfilling prophecy.

Just like in 2008, when the Fed Res, Treasury, and media, CONVINCED us the economy was about to fail, and so created a Recession.

Note, the Government did NOTHING to get us out of that except Loan Big banks money, to buy up small banks.

If you want to come here and disagree or make points and convince some of us we are wrong and get us to see the light maybe you should make a good faith argument and back it up with facts. Otherwise you're just being a troll and an asshole much like D French.

I read with sadness the President's remarks questioning the loyalty of our esteemed Jewish citizens. We are a diverse nation and it's natural for us to have differing opinions on a multitude of questions and it sends the wrong message to our adversaries when the President besmirches the well-known wisdom of a Great People.
It's also quite unseemly for one man to claim the mantle of Chose One.

My memory is that the hits to Sarah came mostly from NY Jews and they were driven by real fear and hate. There is an NYT interview with Phillip Roth and the subject was his decision not to write anymore. Then out of the blue Roth goes full bonkers on a Sarah Hate Fest. Even the interviewer was stunned by it. My best guess is she represents a Shiska threat to their manhood or something. It was very weird and very real. This was'nt normal media pretending.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday is expected to direct his administration to permanently forgive student loan debt held by disabled veterans.

Trump was to sign the order after he addresses the AMVETS convention in Louisville, the White House said.

In prepared remarks, Trump said his order would direct the Department of Education to "eliminate every penny of federal student loan debt owed by American veterans who are completely and permanently disabled."

Grammie, back in 2011-2012 I liked David French and his wife Nancy, because they were two of the first evangelical punditers that vocally supported Mitt Romney. They didn't insinuate his religion disqualified him like, say, Mike Huckabee and others did. As a Mormon I appreciated that.

It's all they have. Look at their platform (such as it is). Do you think they can get a critical mass of people to vote *for* that platform?

Probably not, damaged as the body politic is. Their ideas are unsaleable. So the alternative is to get them to vote *against* Trump (or, not as good, to just stay home next time). They pick a target, soften it up, move on to the next, and eventually come back every now and again.

It isn't about convincing those people or even necessarily about winning their votes - it's about taking their votes away from Trump.

232 French once was a member of a weird cult, from what I recall, and it's hard to virtue signal when you've consigned everyone but your fellow cultists to Hell in a past life.

All the theological crap aside, has French ever spoke out against Democrats who blood libel blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, whatever, who vote for or support Republicans? He may have but the odds are greater a meteor with David's name tied to it will slam into Earth sometime soon. French only serves two masters: the Military Industrial Complex and the communist Left, often at the same time.

I think you have something there. Cultural (not necessarily religious) Jews are very, very wary and sometimes outright hostile of anything that resembles the sort of religio/cultural triumphalism that traditional European Christianity and Islam can demonstrate, because that stuff was poison to their ancestors. So it's like they catch an echo of that and all the Pavlovian reflexes kick in.

I think it actually comes down to fear of the majority. If they are hicks and rubes and hayseeds, it all the more worse.
Trump is a little bit different. With his background in NYC real estate, his friendship with many Jewish businessmen, his support for Israeland his daughter and grandchildren being Jewish, you would think that if anyone would be an "Honorary Jew", it would be Trump.

So it must be fear of his SUPPORTERS

Even the interviewer was stunned by it. My best guess is she represents a Shiska threat to their manhood or something. It was very weird and very real. This was'nt normal media pretending.

AP excerpt, Nov. 13, 2020:

"After President Trump's shocking reelection in defiance of all available polling data, 90% of right-leaning media has been abruptly defunded.

Following the shuttering of most conservative publications, the streets of Washington and New York are host to a fascinating tableau: in scenes reminiscent of Les Miserables, hungry, despondent, shabby cucks wander the town in search of food.

A walking contradiction, the ravenous but still morbidly obese Jonah Goldberg was seen beneath an I-695 overpass. As he sipped Cisco from brandy snifter, he held forth to a forlorn group of his fellow grifters regarding the importance of civility in the Age of Trump.

None of them, however, had the wherewithal to provide the greasy hobo with pants.

No stranger to the Big & Tall store himself, Bill Kristol fulsomely agreed with Goldberg, and slyly hinted that he and John Kasich had a plan to set things right.

When asked to expand upon that statement, he winked, held a finger to his voluminous, oleaginous lips, and said 'Silentium est aurum...'"

290 #NeverTrump "Conservative"

On gun violence, Republicans are a profile in cowardice
by Max Boot

Much more ambitious gun controls are needed. We should treat guns the way we treat cars, requiring gun owners to pass gun safety courses, get a new license at regular intervals and carry liability insurance that would force insurance companies to investigate their background. We need federally funded research into improving gun safety with "smart guns" and other technologies. We need to end gun manufacturers' immunity from lawsuits. And we need to outlaw an entire class of weapons -assault rifles - that has no place outside of combat.

New Zealand (turn in their weapons as part of a buyback program or face five years in prison) and Australia have had a sensible response to mass shootings. Our non-response is suicidal - and it's due entirely to Republican lawmakers and a Republican president putting loyalty to the NRA above their loyalty to the American people. Republicans claim to be tough on defense, but when it comes to what is, along with global warming, arguably our top national security threat (more Americans have died from gun violence in the past 50 years than in all of our wars combined), they are a profile in cowardice. In their dealings with the gun lobby, Republicans are Neville Chamberlain, not Winston Churchill.

Aside from the sequel's ponderousness and narrative flabbiness, the trilogy ended at an interesting spot. The cycle of control had been broken and a new reality was awaiting them.

------------------------
It was a pathetic story that didn't even fit history. St. Louis did have a lot of Germans, but the south as a region is Anglophillic as you can get. History will tell you the German Bund in America was in the Northeast, Upper Midwest and oddly, Southern California. Yeah, Lindbergh and St. Louis, but between St. LO and KC is Jesse James country. Nothing to do with Germans. Roth, as an author, is a fraud who writes half ass stories and then wraps them in a Freudian Taco. This shit sold in the 1960s. It doesn't sell today. If you want a great Jewish American novel read Catch 22. Very Germanic in construct, but very American in context.

There's no indication about what it will be, but I have some small element of hope about it.

I'm not a huge Wachowski fan. I like Speed Racer, but I'm not the kind of loon that calls it a masterpiece. I found Cloud Atlas unwatchable and Jupiter Ascending to be one of the dumbest movies ever. However, that was them adapting a bad book and then trying to create a new (very weird) mythology for a space opera.

Going back into the world of the Matrix, where they already have a mythology to build off of could be what Larry needs to refocus creative energies.

I want another movie to love, not another one to hate. I chose to be cautiously optimistic.

That seems obvious to us. We're all Cypher from the first movie.

But the rest of the resistance were fighting directly against that. They thought everyone would just accept the real reality. So, when people choose to stay in the simulation, do the fighters just accept it? Or do they change the nature of the fight?

I could imagine a cabal of machines and waken humans coming together to do something nefarious, and Neo and Trinity have to fight against that. It could be interesting.

Seriously, if the Architect keeps destroying the Matrix and Zion, where the shit are these primitives getting this weird tech from?

I'll tell you. They only succeed because the Machines have a bone-deep aversion to killing humans. Fuck, they give humans tech they could never invent in a million years, just to let them feel like they're accomplishing something. And that's assuming the reality isn't just one more layer of the Matrix.

Former Senator Hank Brown Comments on His Former Colleague Joe Biden's Mental Fitness: "I will be surprised if he survives the primaries"

I assume he intended "survives the primaries" to mean "prevails in the primaries," but who knows. Biden is old and fading.


Brown: Senator Biden is a pleasant, outgoing individual. He was consistently one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate. To hear him described as a moderate could happen only in Washington, D.C.

Freeman: For an unrelated project, I have just screened six hours of campaign tape on Joe Biden. As you might expect, an original thought did not once interrupt the partisan boilerplate. But there was another problem, a problem not unknown to those of us of a certain age. The word Biden was looking for was, more than occasionally, hidden in the back of a closet. You've watched him for more than 30 years. Is he up to the job he's applied for?

Brown: I never observed in him the qualities of intellect, vision, exceptional integrity, or savvy that are required in an effective president. I will be surprised if he survives the primaries.

She has this aura of being a wonk and really smart. She's a woman. She's progressive. She seems young (in a similar way that Trump seems young).

118 67 Pres. Trump is considering ending birthright citizenship "
It's not nice to tease. "

It's written into current US Code. Only Congress can change that, with the President's signature. Trump doesn't have the authority to do anything about it on his own, if he tries it will be tossed by the first Federal Judge that hears it.

I *think* that if the Congress and the President work together to change it, that the SCOTUS will go along, but that's not guaranteed. If SCOTUS disagrees, then it will take a Constitutional Amendment, rewriting the 14th Am.

120 Brown: I never observed in him the qualities of intellect, vision, exceptional integrity, or savvy that are required in an effective president. I will be surprised if he survives the primaries.

I have said that Biden has never been that popular with Dems.

He never crested 1% in his previous outings for President.

Sure, he's been VP since, and and for Obama, who remains oddly popular with a party which is busy burying his legacy. But still - Joe Biden.

139 This Brown fellow is a national treasure. I read the entire interview, and it is full of gems. I especially like this one:

Brown: Some universities have such a strong reputation that they may be worth $50,000-plus, but those are very few. Many teach students to think of themselves as victims in this world and do more harm than good. Most students would be better off working full-time to gain experience and going to night school to earn a BA.

If more people did that, it would do more to push down the cost of college than almost anything else. There's no way you're majoring in Third-World Wymyn's Pre-Colombian Lesbian hermeneutics if you need a useful degree to climb up to the next rung on the corporate ladder.

181 So just to reiterate where Birthright Citizenship comes from: The 14th Amendment says that "Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. "

Current US Code and judicial precedent define "persons" as "all human beings", period. Origin or status is irrelevant.
Current US COde and judicial precedent define "Under the Jurisdiction of" as being anyone who is subject to arrest by any officer of the law in this country. Embassy staff who have diplomatic immunity are about the only persons who fit this category.

So those are the things that have to be changed if you want to change the practice. Or just amend the 14th amendment to read differently than it does.

Posted by: dananjcon

I love how The NY Times pretends it doesn't know or understand why Trump suggested something "crazy" like buying Greenland. They know good and well we pressured the Danes to kick the ChiComs out of financing and building their airport. Part of that was begin negotiating what to do about the fools in Nuuk, perhaps buying the island that has been nothing but a money sump for the Danes. But when that got leaked, and Trump admitted we were considering it, the Dames freaked and began pretending they were surprised and "flabbergasted" Now the whole things off for now - and the Danes are left still wondering what to about the Nanuuks from the north.

344 118 67 Pres. Trump is considering ending birthright citizenship "
It's not nice to tease. "

It's written into current US Code. Only Congress can change that, with the President's signature. Trump doesn't have the authority to do anything about it on his own, if he tries it will be tossed by the first Federal Judge that hears it.

I *think* that if the Congress and the President work together to change it, that the SCOTUS will go along, but that's not guaranteed. If SCOTUS disagrees, then it will take a Constitutional Amendment, rewriting the 14th Am.

348 President Joe Biden would threaten to punch other world leaders.

The real problem would be Biden at a summit. He might inadvertently give Putin everything east of the Mississippi. We'd have to warn world leaders not to believe a word he says.

This is why I think that Trump would simply kill it in the presidential debates.

I loved W (at the time), but I was always afraid that he would put his foot in his mouth if he were asked more than three questions in a row. I've never had any fear of Trump doing that at any point in his presidency. Now that he actually has experience with how government works, plus this practice in dealing with hostile questions, when the average LIV sees him in action when full attention needs to be paid to the election by the public people will be blown away.

The question is, do you believe, as Justice Scalia did, that the Supreme Court should follow the plain language of the Constitution as it is written? Or do you believe, as Earl Warren did, that Judges should put in place their own opinions of what that language meant, without bothering too much with what the actual words say?

that right there is the heart of the entire dispute between a Conservative Judiciary and a Liberal Judiciary.

Wasn't Scalia also the one who said the Constitution isn't a national suicide pact? Not that birthright citizenship is lethal, but it's certainly unhealthy to the body politic.

361 Why doesn't the 14th amendment apply to Native Americans?
Posted by: Someguy at August 21, 2019 02:21 PM (yOykd)

It does, now. Congress rewrote all of the laws covering Native Americans in the massive Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, and that included bringing them inside the 14th Amendment. That's what causes me to believe that Congressional Action could deal with this situation without the need for a Constitutional Amendment, since Congress did it for the Native Americans.

but the President many NOT change statutory law with an EO. He can only direct how existing law is to be enforced, subject to review by the Judiciary.

In one way, W was like the Michael Corleone of the Bush family--that is, he wasn't supposed to enter the family business. Jeb was.

But once he decided to get in, he decided he was just going to go along with pop's advisers and the neocon think tanks and Cheney. So he's a globalist.

I think that in a lot of ways, he is the frat boy that the Left always said he was. I don't think it's an act.

The implication that this was necessary is that Indians, being subject to their respective tribe, were not "subject to the jurisdiction" of the US merely by traveling on US lands.

US law is now a mixture of 20th century legal concepts and the much older European legal concepts tied to kingdoms and such. This has lead to many weird results relative to other countries. It's an ugly mish mash but I don't see any reason to favor an obviously obtuse interpretation.
