James Balog Vanishing Glaciers & Vanishing IQ's

ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers

As the environmental photographer James Balog shows in his new book Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers, the deep ice of the poles is far from invulnerable. Balog’s breathtaking pictures show how erosion and melting temperatures take their toll on the glaciers, shrinking and carving them.The result is dazzling to look at, but terrifying for the planet. As glaciers melt, more and more water flows into the oceans, raising sea levels. This July scientists were surprised to see the entire Greenland ice sheet essentially turn to mush for a few days in an unusually rapid thaw. Arctic sea ice melted to its smallest extent this summer in decades. The day could well come when the only place will be able to see glaciers will be photographs like those in Ice." --Bryan Walsh, Time online, 10/25/2012

As a conservative, or radical traditionalist, I am waiting for more of my fellow "conservatives" to jump into the 'Time' Comments section beneath this review to make their typical claims, such as, say, it is well documented that the earth's glaciers have for many years been growing by leaps and bounds. I am also entertained by the people who say, first, that global warming is a myth, second, that even if it is happening, it is not man-made, and, third, even if it is happening and it is man-made, it is not a bad thing, since, for example, Greenland will be able to put in lush fields of watermelon and summer squash. Now that's what I call covering all bases.

I will give them this. Al Gore doesn't really care that much about the environment, or he would not be an overpopulation/open-borders apologist. But you can't help wondering how much industry money is behind some of these people. Of course many industries eventually will be pulled under by global warming, but most people are not concerned about some problem that is going to reach its crisis stage decades down the line, again, as our virulent anti-environment anti-Western civilization open-borders policies attest.

LA Bladerunner Times ‘Tolerance’ Poll

"A Times exit poll the day of the 1994 election found that 63% of whites voted for the proposition [Proposition 187, the initiative to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using health care, public education, and other social services]. White respondents in the latest poll remain in favor, but by a narrower 51%-41% margin." --California Voters More Tolerant of Illegal Immigrants, Poll Finds, Cindy Chang, Los Angeles Times, October 28, 2012, also appearing at American Renaissance online, 10/29/2012.

Of course all this is reported in classic LA Timese.

First, white flight and intermarriage have been going along at a pretty good clip in all these many years since the federal government began promoting the third-world invasion of California, so we need to factor-in that all the whites polled were probably self-identified.

Next, notice the big story is reported to be that voting margins have narrowed–not that there is still a whopping 10 percent, practically an election-landslide, majority on the side of sane law enforcement–a majority opinion that will of course continue to be ignored by our smirking ruling elites. You would think that this might be an even bigger news story for a major newspaper like the LA Times. You would think wrong.

Thirdly, note how these new polling figures are said to show that whites are becoming  increasingly "tolerant"--as opposed to those sad creatures who remain stubbornly [insert scary music here] intolerant. So, let’s get this straight: people are pronounced by the LA Times to be intolerant if they are not okay with masses of people amongst them breaking the law? Okay, thanks, got it.

This is just the sort of ham-handedly slanted story you would expect from a once esteemed newspaper that has over the years become thoroughly unprofessionally politicized, for decades now having banged the drum for the third-world invasion of California and the United States. Given what the Los Angeles Times has become, it is only natural that it will continue to see and report on European Americans who do not want to be overrun and demographically erased by other cultures and races as, in reality, simply demonstrating their inherent unbridled dumb-as-a-stump intolerance.

In other words, for whites and for whites alone, unlike all other populations on earth, any sincere feelings of ethnic self-defense must be, by definition, instantly translated into intolerance, xenophobia, ignorance, fear, racism, unthinking anger and hate, hate, hate.

What is the explanation for all this Orwellian nonsense? It is almost as if many whites are in the grips of some bizarre fatal racial autoimmune pandemic. Who knows for sure, but some scholars say that an extreme form of individualism that originally developed in Northwestern Europe, from which we have also benefited, eventually turned into an extreme “competitive altruism,” whereby whites earn important status points from each other by being indifferent to or, better still, hostile toward the fate of their own extended kin group, while, on the other hand, welcoming with open arms all outsiders, the more exotic the better. Obviously if only Westerners feel and act this way, as other ethnic, religious and racial populations push their own agendas for the earth’s limited resources, it is the West that is heading for oblivion.

Ending Affirmative Action = Taking Playtoy Away From T. Rex

“Mismatch: How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It’s Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won’t Admit It.” 

By Richard H. Sander and Stuart Taylor Jr, excerpts of review by Robert VerBruggen.

“ ... Mr. Sander summarizes the excellent research he’s done on law schools, for example. Black students admitted under racial preferences tend to drop out at much higher rates than black students who attend schools that match their qualifications, and black law school graduates are far more likely than whites to fail their bar exam. ... A similar effect also seems clear in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).

“The authors also take a look at the effects of Proposition 209, the California ballot initiative that briefly eliminated racial preferences in the University of California system. (Prop 209 is still in effect, but schools have found ways to get around it. [bold added])

“Mr. Sander and Mr. Taylor, of course, have their share of critics, and “Mismatch” will not be the last word on this subject. But they have put the nation’s universities in a put-up-or-shut-up situation: They can either admit that preferences do harm, or they can release the data that prove otherwise.”–Book Review, Robert VerBruggen, Washington Times, 10/29/98

Several things revealed by this review, some unintentionally:

(1) Although it is clear that affirmative action, discrimination against whites, hurts many blacks, its overall impact has probably provided enough of an unfair boost to blacks that it is the largest factor responsible for the growing black middle class. For one thing, think government workers.

(2) This anti-white discrimination in school admissions and job hirings goes much farther than many National Review-type “conservatives” want to admit. To put it starkly, let’s say you are a professor or a small businessperson and out of the people in your charge, only one is failing miserably, and it just so happens he is the only African American in the bunch. Most whites are going to think once, think twice and then think again before jettisoning that person. Besides any potential legal hassles, most whites would be thinking, “God, I don’t need this--how is this going to look?!”  Whereas a failing European American would have long since been sent trundling out the door.

(3) In a very real way, liberals and neocon National Review-type “conservatives” conspire to prop up this false PC nightmare world the rest of us are forced to dwell within. Liberals pretend that the gravy train we supply to minorities merely corrects centuries of injustice and sets things on an even playing field. On the other hand, neocons are always propagandizing that the glaring dysfunctions, at least to white eyes, of majority non-white cities and nations are 100 percent due to liberal social programs. Apparently years and years after slavery and segregation, liberal social engineering still has every majority black city and nation in the world tightly in its evil dysfunctional grip. Obviously utopian liberal programs have made these things worse, but that doesn't mean that without these polices, such places like inner-city Detroit and Port-au-Prince would be shining examples industrious free enterprise.

(4) The reason that neocons harp on the liberal programs issue is not just because what they say is true in their determinedly nearsighted view of things, but this approach allows them to skirt inherent racial IQ and crime differences. After all, the races upon the earth did evolve separately for thousands of years. It would be more than astounding if there were no inherent meaningful differences. Yet such subjects are taboo in respectable society. But this isn't about one people being ‘supreme’ to another in some cosmic sense. Being white, I am part of a people who, as a group average, have an inherently lower IQ and probably higher violent crime inclinations than some population groups in Asia, but that information doesn't make me want to run screaming into the night nor demand special child-booster-seat treatment in education and hiring.

(5) And what to say about the endearing naivete at the end of the above review: “But they have put the nation’s universities in a put-up-or-shut-up situation: They can either admit that preferences do harm, or they can release the data that prove otherwise.” Really? If they don’t, what happens then? Maybe we can outlaw affirmative action nationally, like California’s Proposition 209 that “schools found ways to get around”? Let’s not kid ourselves, ending affirmative action will be like trying to take a favorite playtoy away from T. rex.

(6) Affirmative action is the foremost example of the victorious march of the Cultural Marxists through the institutions of the West. This huge bizarre ungainly superstructure has been bolted into place by the Left and their ethnic pets, their moral power source, using brute force, dishonest maneuver, and by social and career sanctions against those who speak out against it–and by neocons who provide a fig leaf by implying that 100 percent of the disproportionate minority dysfunctions are explained by daffy do-gooder liberal programs. If only.

(7) Finally, how pathetically worm-like have we whites become that the only way we can object to our own grandkids having the door slammed in their faces when lining up for competitive college and job opportunities is to try to prove that affirmative action hurts minorities? Wait, I’ll take that back. Even earthworms don’t proudly offer up their offspring to the nearest hungry robin.

PC Military Maneuvers Now Limited To Zombies

"Marines, police prep for mock zombie invasion

October 27, 2012
 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Move over vampires, goblins and haunted houses, this kind of Halloween terror aims to shake up even the toughest warriors: An untold number of so-called zombies are coming to a counter-terrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares. ...
Organizers can also avoid the pitfalls of using a mock enemy who could be identified by nationality, race or culture — something that could potentially be seen as offensive." --AP Staff Writer, Washington Examiner, 10/27/2012
And this is exactly what is going to bring down America and Western civilization.

AP "Racism" Poll Actually Realism

"AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks


... In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 percent, up from 49 percent during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell. ..."

Whites are well aware that there are wonderful blacks, but they also know of such realities as vastly disproportionate violent crime and corruption statistics. So what is always trumpeted as "racism" against blacks, and to a lesser extent Latinos, is actually realism and people wanting to protect their own families.

Tom Wolfe & ‘Back to Blood’ - What Happened?

Tom Wolfe & ‘Back to Blood’ - What Happened?

Google Images

"Tom Wolfe is back — back with a new novel, of course, but also back with the big characters, the loud prose and the skewering of the cultural elite that have been the touchstones of his work. What he is not back with is some new object of stinging satire. 'Radical Chic' and 'The Bonfire of the Vanities' were such pleasures to read because no one at the time was saying what Mr. Wolfe was saying and how he was saying it. 'Back to Blood,' unfortunately, is the Wolfe novel we’ve all read before." --Micah Mattix, Washington Times, 10/26/2012 

     Good review. True, Tom Wolfe would be a hero even if he never wrote another word, but it is hard not to speculate. What happened? 

     As unusual as it was at the time to lampoon someone like Al Sharpton, today it is done routinely by just about everyone. But it is much easier to poke fun at the absurd manifestations of a crumbling civilization than to shine that same skewering spotlight on its underlying causes. 

     In the first case, although you might become unpopular among the politically correct literary intelligentsia, if you write brilliantly enough, you can still be acknowledged as a major writer. In the second case, ruling elites will declare you a pariah and your cocktail party invitations will dry up.

Casar Chavez, Fresno State & Tolerance Police

Casar Chavez, Fresno State & The Tolerance Police

"Chavez was particularly taken with a Synanon practice called 'The Game,' another Maoist 'struggle session' ripoff of the sort so popular at the time, refashioned to accommodate the imaginary 'needs' of rich, guilty white Western liberals."

–Kathy Shaidle, ‘Little Cesar,’ Taki Magazine, 10/23/2012*

A fine article. I'm thinking this must be similar to what were then called "encounter groups" or "rap sessions." As some at the time pointed out, if everyone knows that they are supposed to be building toward some emotional catharsis, a shouting crying crescendo of leftist utopian revelation, it makes the entire enterprise just a script that must be followed. Therefore these sessions were about as free-spirited and intuitive as being strapped into a dentist chair and having your wisdom teeth yanked out.

In my role at the time, as semi-professional student on serial campuses, I was at Fresno State for a couple of years, majoring in government--Model Cities anyone?--and the Chavez grape boycott was a fairly big deal. I recall a student council meeting right before it was about to vote, as the packed-in pro-Chavez crowd proceeded to perform its power clap, a sort of synchronized mechanical clapping of the hands with increasing decibels and frequency, and my watching at least some council kids looking pretty scared. Forget now what the vote was about, but the power clappers definitely won it.

I should have seen the handwriting on the wall. A later incarnation of these same loving members of the Tolerance Police are now firmly in power in America, even in the White  House.

Coming White Succession?

The Coming White Succession?

Obviously whites are being demographically phased out of all Western nations, but what to DO?

As for the U.S., tellingly, not long ago, when Richard Spencer, of Alternative Right, was interviewing Pat Buchanan and pressed him at least a couple times on what we can do about our long-term plight, a desperate plight that Buchanan has brilliantly and courageous warned us about for so long, Buchanan could not come up with a thing. Makes you sort of wonder why he writes all those books. Not a serious slap at Pat. In my eyes, Buchanan could retire tomorrow as an unassailable hero of the U.S. and the rest of the West. (Although Pat has a blind spot when it comes to the importance of maintaining a healthy environment, the centerpiece of our hunting and pioneering traditions.)

Who knows the answer? We may even be able to squeeze out one or two more economic booms in our future, but after further darker economic plunges, as the nation’s population becomes ever more third-world, with perhaps also including new cycles of urban rioting and looting (does anyone really think we've seen the last of those?), white succession will begin to seem increasingly plausible and then necessary--succession not so much applying to the states, but to the counties.

Even in the case of California, many of its 58 counties are, in today’s lingo, "red," meaning overwhelmingly white and conservative, and will be about as willing to passively join up with a metastasizing Mexangeles or a Rainbow San Francisco as would be the average white Montanan or Alabaman.

Of course to the feds any hint of genuine rebellion will be seen as Armageddon on stilts, as Bill Murray’s character said at the end of ‘Ghostbusters’ about a falling-apart hellzapoppin New York City, “Dogs and cats are living together!” Our ruling elites in the media, academia, entertainment and elsewhere will be spontaneously combusting while coughing up cultural Marxist furballs.

But if the American puzzle pieces were loosening right and left, the U.S. military, increasingly dependent on multicultural and multiracial soldier-persons, might not be so easily employed by an out-of-touch empire government to frantically try to Krazy Glue the nation back together.

Ideally all this would be nonviolent, a peaceable separation due to irreconcilable differences, keeping in mind that American voters were never asked to approve government policies supporting ever more diversity, multiculturalism and open borders, much less to accept these things as part of a fanatical runaway mandatory civic religion.

In other words, Americans of European heritage were never asked for vote their approval of their demographic demise. And we really should have been consulted.

Romney: US must help Syrian rebels oust Assad

"LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — Mitt Romney declared on Monday the U.S. must join other nations in helping arm Syrian rebels to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, casting President Barack Obama's efforts as weak and part of a broader lack of leadership in the Middle East and around the globe."

Great, a choice between President Apologetic and President Apocalyptic.

France + Jews + Muslims = ‘Mad Magazine’ in Hell

France + Jews + Muslims = ‘Mad Magazine’ in Hell

“PARIS (AP) — France is boosting security at Jewish and other religious sites after blanks were fired at a synagogue and police accused a suspected cell of radical Islamists of ties to a grenade attack on a kosher grocery. President Francois Hollande sought Sunday to allay tensions between Jews and Muslims aggravated by a recent series of violent incidents in the country. ...”

"grenade attack on a kosher grocery store"?

You can't make this stuff up. Thanks to our clueless open-borders multiculturalist elites, all Western nations are devolving into a version of 'Mad Magazine' in Hell. Notice in the article (see address below) that Hollande is even going to make sure that "any remark is prosecuted." Remark? Apparently the best defense against "Nazism" is goose-stepping. Also observe that Hollande now has to scramble back and forth between the Jewish and Muslim communities, because any cracking down on Muslim extremists might get him into trouble with moderate Muslim groups. What utterly pathetic worms have Western leaders become!

The tremendous irony of all this is that the Jewish community (no--not every Jewish person) has probably been the most influential force in flooding the West with people from the Third World. It has always believed that by destabilizing the West and making its societies ever more multicultural, multi-religious and multiracial, Jews will be safer from evil white anti-antisemitism (see "The Culture of Critique' by Kevin MacDonald), and this attitude long predates the rise of the Nazis, so it can't all be written off to that experience.

On the plus side, when the West does fall, at least Jews can escape to Israel, since they, unlike the people of Western European heritage, are allowed to have their own secured ethnic-majority homeland.

In any case, don't forget to "Celebrate [ever increasing] diversity!"

Obama’s Pants on Fire Deportation Lies

Obama’s Pants on Fire Deportation Lies

Excerpts from: “Obama puts illegals ahead of Americans ‘Record’ deportation numbers don’t add up,”
Rep Lamar Smith, Washington Times, 2/26/2012

“Obama administration officials at the Department of Homeland Security claim they are on track to deport a record number of illegal immigrants this year. But on closer examination, the administration’s numbers simply don’t add up.

Internal Homeland Security documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee reveal that President Obama's administration has inflated the figures to achieve its so-called historic deportation numbers. These documents show that administration officials have fabricated their statistics by adding more than 140,000 removals to their deportation figures for the past two years.

Since 2011, the Obama administration has included in its year-end deportation statistics more than 100,000 removals from a Border Patrol program that returns illegal immigrants to Mexico right after they cross the border. It’s dishonest to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the border as removals.

These are actually returns, where the illegal immigrant is simply turned around and escorted across the border to another location. This means a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border, be removed numerous times in a single year and be counted each time as a removal.

When the numbers from this Border Patrol program are removed from this year’s deportation data, they show that removals are down nearly 20 percent from 2009.

Another 40,000 removals also are included in the final deportation count, but it is unclear where these removals came from.

Subtract the artificial inflation, and the facts show that the Obama administration is neglecting to enforce immigration laws.

The administration has all but abandoned worksite enforcement actions. Over the past three years, worksite enforcement has plummeted by 70 percent.

Under this administration, there have been fewer illegal workers arrested, fewer criminal arrests, fewer indictments and fewer convictions. This means illegal workers continue to take jobs away from unemployed Americans.

Without worksite enforcement, we can’t stop employers from hiring illegal workers. As long as the jobs magnet exists, millions of illegal immigrants will come to the United States and take jobs from lawful workers.

Mr. Obama and his administration also have granted blanket amnesty to potentially millions of illegal immigrants. This policy strikes another blow at the millions of unemployed American workers. This massive amnesty allows illegal immigrants to receive work authorization and puts more Americans on the unemployment rolls.

Administration officials also claim that the border is more secure than ever, but the Government Accountability Office says that only 44 percent of the southwestern border is under operational control. That’s a failing grade.

Last year, nearly a half-million people were apprehended trying to enter the country illegally, but those are just the ones we caught. Border Patrol agents estimate that there are three successful illegal entries for every illegal immigrant who is apprehended. That means more than 1 million illegal immigrants cross into the United States every year.

It’s disappointing that the Obama administration continues to put illegal immigrants ahead of the interests of American citizens. Twenty-three million Americans are unemployed or looking for full-time work. Meanwhile, 7 million illegal immigrants have jobs in the U.S. We could free up millions of those jobs for citizens and legal immigrants if we simply enforced our immigration laws.

It seems like Mr. Obama is trying to trick the American people into thinking that he is enforcing our immigration laws. But no amount of distorted math can cover up the facts. It’s bad enough that the president has neglected to enforce our immigration laws, but it’s even worse that his administration would falsify figures to deceive the American people.”
