We Need To Talk About Fascism

Listen to "EP 68 We Need To Talk About Fascism" on Spreaker.

When I was at the Mencken Club conference, I was at Paul Gottfried’s table the first night and it occurred to me I should do a show on fascism. I don’t mean the cartoon fascism popular with some elements of the alt-right or the erotic fantasy version popular with the American Left. I mean historic fascism that actually thrived and existed in Europe during the interwar years. I got a lot of compliments on the shows covering libertarianism and democracy, so I thought I should try to do a big-brained show at least one a month.
What occurred to me at dinner that night is Paul’s book, Fascism: The Career of a Concept, would be a great skeleton key for a podcast. The book is a short, general survey of the topic and the academic arguments surrounding fascism. It’s also largely free of discussion of You Know Who. The Nazis were a crude implementation of fascism that lacked the intellectual depth you see in other fascist movements. They get all the attention for a a number of reasons, but they are anything but the exemplar of the movement.
The result this week is a very general introduction to the topic, along with a very general survey of the main themes. Because we don’t live in a serious age or a serious country, most people know nothing about one of the more important ideological movements of the last century. The goal here is to focus on the high points, without getting too far into the weeds. I have a bunch of links in the contents section for those interested in following up on the books and people mentioned. Obviously, this is a highly abbreviated survey.

Twitter ‘gave Saudi Arabia information about journalist who ended up dead’ By Pamela Geller

Twitter is evil. They enabled the Saudis to kill this man. They still haven’t done anything about the vile Jew-hatred spewed by Louis Farrakhan, and they won’t. I have been shadow banned and many of my followers banned for being conservative, but that vile Jew-hater is sanctioned and normed. Twitter silenced numerous conservative voices in the run-up to the midterms, as have the other social media giants. They are desperate to control the public discourse so that only leftists’ voices are heard. Antitrust action is urgently needed.
“Twitter ‘gave Saudi Arabia information about journalist who ended up dead,’” by Lucy Middleton, Metro, November 9, 2018:
Twitter has come under fire after another dissident journalist was reportedly tortured and killed in Saudi Arabia.
Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was arrested on March 15 for allegedly running a Twitter account called Kashkool, which exposed human rights violations by Saudi authorities and royals.
He then died while being tortured in detention, The New Khaleej states – prompting fresh outrage over an alleged leak of information that lead to his capture.
‘They got his information from the Twitter office in Dubai. That is how he was arrested,’ a source, who wishes to remain anonymous, told

Traitor UK Politicians Squabble over EU Nonsense as Third World Invasion Swamps Britain

British Prime Minister Theresa May has predictably completely messed up the “Brexit” process, sparking off a fierce squabble in her own party which may yet bring her government down, while the real threat to the country’s future—Third World immigration—continues unchecked and ignored, and made up nearly 60 percent of all inward migration in 2017.

At time of writing, a number of May’s senior government figures had resigned, and more were threatening to do so. At the same time, the real possibility of a motion of “no confidence” in her awaits in the British Parliament.
However, an analysis of the “British” politicians who have resigned from May’s government reveals what is really happening to Britain: a great racial replacement which is far more important than low-level squabbles over customs agreements and the like.
Of the seven resignations so far, four have been nonwhites whose immediate origins are outside the UK. They are as follows:
– Conservative MP Rehman Chishti—who was born in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan—announced that he had also stepped down as Conservative party vice chairman, saying that he “cannot support” May’s Draft Brexit deal.
– Conservative MP and Northern Ireland minister Shailesh Vara—born in Uganda to Gujarati Indians—resigned in protest.
– Conservative MP and Brexit minister Suella Braverman—born to Indians from Goa who immigrated to Britain via Kenya and Mauritius—resigned.
– Conservative MP and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Ministerial team at the Department for Work and Pensions, Ranil Jayawardena—whose parents came from India—resigned.
“British” politicians resign over Brexit: from left to right, Chishti, Vara, Braverman, and Jayawardena.
These Conservative “British” politicians are not an aberration: they are a microcosm of what is happening to the entire country. The real issue facing Britain is not some petty squabble over a customs agreement, or other such minor matters over which the Brexit fight is taking place, but actually the fact that Third World immigration—legal and illegal—is rapidly swamping Britain.
The latest population figures released by the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS), for example, revealed that Britain’s population is at an all-time high—and almost exclusively due to Third World immigration.
The November 2018 release from the ONS said that in mid-2017, the population of the UK was an estimated 66 million–its largest ever.

This Thanksgiving Smart Americans Will Not Serve Turkey To Their Family

In six days families across America will come together for one of the biggest holidays in America. We will get to talk to cousins and other members of our family that we may not have seen in a while. There will be a parade on tv and several football games. For many people in America. It is a day when families who normally do not pray over their meal make it a point to pray. Perhaps to those families our Lord and Savior does not deserve to be thanked the other 364 days a year for the food they receive and who they have in their life. There will be all kind of good food to eat. Mashed potatoes. Corn. Dinner rolls. There will even be dessert. This year there is something else though. There is something that no American who enjoys Thanksgiving wants to hear six days before Thanksgiving Day. With six days before Thanksgiving the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has put out a recall on turkey.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced a dangerous outbreak of salmonella that was connected to raw turkey products over the summer. Since the CDC first put out the warning about the salmonella outbreak back in July it has been reported that 164 people across 35 different states have gotten sick. That 164 is just a minimum number meaning that the actual number of people who have gotten sick because of the outbreak may be much higher. Out of the 164 recorded cases of people who got sick, 63 of them have been hospitalized and one person died.
This dangerous and deadly salmonella outbreak started in November 2017. There does not appear to be one centralized distributor connected to this outbreak which makes it unclear where the turkey at the center of this deadly salmonella outbreak came from. Americans who would traditionally have turkey with their Thanksgiving meal should strongly reconsider their choice, because they may be putting the life and health of their loved ones and their own life and health at great risk. Since patient zero or the turkey at the center of this outbreak is unknown then there is a very real chance that this deadly outbreak is widespread throughout the turkey industry. Recent lab tests have detected salmonella in several turkey products including ground turkey and turkey patties. Further testing for the deadly strain of salmonella found it in live turkeys and pet food as well.
While the investigation for the source of the salmonella outbreak is ongoing the CDC and USDA have been working with the turkey industry to try to reduce this contamination from getting worse. There are serious symptoms that Americans who come into contact with turkey need to watch out for, because it could be the difference between life and death.Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. In most cases these symptoms will only normally last four to seven days and people have been able to recover without treatment. However, most cases does not mean in every case. This outbreak has killed at least once. That means it can kill again. While death is rare, salmonella can kill people who are not treated with antibiotics right away. That is why if you experience these symptoms you can not dismiss them and must see your physician or hospital as soon as possible.

Women Accuse Dartmouth Professors of Sexual Abuse. Todd Heatherton, William Kelley, and Paul Whalen: 5 Fast Facts.

Paul Whelan, Todd Heatherton, William Kelley
Todd Heatherton, William Kelley and Paul Whalen are the three Dartmouth professors named in a lawsuit against Dartmouth College by seven women, who detail years of repeated assault from those men.
According to a statement by a Dartmouth spokesman, all three men have lost their tenure and are no longer employed by the college. But the women are still seeking damages from Dartmouth, alleging that even after complaints were filed during their time at Dartmouth, the college encouraged them to continue working with the three professors.
All three professors worked in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Here’s what you need to know about the three professors:

1. The Lawsuit Alleges That All Three Professors Participated in “Perpetuating an Alcohol-Saturated Party Culture” At Dartmouth

The lawsuit, which has requested $70 million in damages from Dartmouth, alleges that Whalen, Heatherton, and Kelly all participated in a series of inappropriate ways during their time at Dartmouth, including holding lab meetings at bars, encouraging students to snort cocaine in class as part of an “experiment” on addiction, and hosting hot tub parties at their homes with students.
In April 2017, a group of female graduate students contacted the college’s Title IX office and detailed the instances of inappropriate and sexually violating behavior. Their claims went unanswered, the new lawsuit maintains, and twenty days after they first approached Dartmouth, another graduate student was sexually assaulted by Whalen.
Dartmouth president Philip Hanlon said in a statement, “We respectfully, but strongly, disagree with the characterizations of Dartmouth’s actions in the complaint and will respond through our own court filings.”
Hanlon further confirmed that the three professors (in addition to no longer working for Dartmouth) are banned from campus and from attending all Dartmouth-sponsored events.

600% Increase in asylum claims from Americans since 2016

600% Increase in asylum claims from Americans since 2016
According to data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, 2,250 US citizens applied for asylum in Canada during 2017. This massive influx marks an increase of more than 6 times the 2016 total and is the largest since 1994.
After Haitians and Nigerians, Americans were the third largest group of asylum seekers in 2017. According to experts, the vast majority of these American claimants are children of Haitian asylum seekers.
As reported in The Guardian, according to Stéphane Handfield, a Montreal-based immigration lawyer, “Most of the Americans applying for refugee status are the children of non-residents. They are US citizens because they were born there, but they come across the border with their parents because they don’t want to be separated.”
The reason for the influx is twofold.

President Donald Trump’s immigration policy

Firstly, the primary reason for this sudden influx is the election of Donald Trump and his strict enforcement of immigration policy.
Past presidents of both parties have taken a much more lax approach on immigration and have at times chosen not to fully enforce all the rules on the books.
However, when Trump was elected, in part because of his hardline immigration viewpoint, this marked a significant shift in how the White House enforced immigration policy.
Since his election Trump has cracked down on illegal immigration on America’s southern border and hasremoved the temporary protected status of people living the the U.S. from a number of countries including Haiti.
This in turn has resulted in an influx of asylum claimants at the Canadian border, particularly in Quebec, as people from the affected countries look to claim asylum in Canada rather than be deported back to their home countries.
Given this change in policy, a moderate influx is surely understandable, if not to be expected. However, an increase of 600% from 2016 to 2017 certainly raises some eyebrows and call for some further explanation.

Justin Trudeau’s virtue signalling

This of course, is where Trudeau comes in.
Being the image conscious Prime Minister that he is and seeing an opportunity to display his virtuous self on the world stage, Trudeau tweeted in January of 2017 “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.”
This one self righteous tweet took a slowly leaking tap and opened it all the way up. One can only imagine how many headaches Trudeau could have saved himself, the Canadian Border Services Agency and the Immigration Refugee Board if he had just fought back the urge to hit send.

One can hardly blame the man really. An opportunity to pump up Canada’s welcoming reputation at a time where the U.S. had just elected an unabashedly America First president must have seemed just too good to pass up.

IQ is Genetic: New Test Can Determine Intelligence Levels in Embryos

Conclusive proof that intelligence is genetic and not “environmental” has come with the news that a new test can determine intelligence levels in embryos—and can accurately predict a child’s low, average, or high level IQ before it is born.

News of the test is contained in a new article in The New Scientist magazine about the company Genomic Prediction, which has launched a “mental disability” test as one of its products.
According to the article, the “new genetic test that enables people having IVF to screen out embryos likely to have a low IQ or high disease risk could soon become available in the US.”
The breakthrough is the result of a new method of testing an embryo’s genes which can “assess complex traits, such as the risk of some diseases and low intelligence, in IVF embryos.”
The tests haven’t been used yet, but the firm began talks last month with several in vitro fertilisation (IVF) clinics to provide them to customers, The New Scientist said.
For intelligence, Genomic Prediction says that it will only offer the option of screening out embryos deemed likely to have “mental disability”.
However, the same approach could in future be used to identify embryos with genes that make them more likely to have a high IQ, the article continued.

Falling Apart': Turmoil as UK Ministers Quit Gov't Protesting May's Brexit Deal

A still image from a video footage shows Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaking during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, in central London, Britain November 14, 2018
A number of UK ministers has left the government amid disagreements over the controversial draft Brexit deal with Prime Minister Theresa May after she managed to secure the cabinet's support of the agreement.
Following in the footsteps of the UK Northern Ireland minister, Brexit Minister Dominic Raab has also announced his resignation from the government. The announcement almost immediately affected the British currency, with the pound plunging.

"I regret to say that, following the Cabinet meeting yesterday on the Brexit deal, I must resign… For my part, I cannot support the proposed deal for two reasons," Raab said in his resignation letter posted on Twitter.

As the Telegraph revealed later, citing its sources, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Michael Gove has been offered the position of the Brexit minister. Meanwhile, Theresa May's spokesman stated that new ministers would be appointed in the usual way. That is the only official statement on the issue made so far.

Shortly after, the Evening Standard reported that Gove has turned down the Brexit Secretary position.

Raymond Chishti, the Vice Chairman of the British Conservative Party has followed his example, announcing resignation. In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Theresa May, he explained the reasons for the move.

"The terms of the backstop, in effect, the amount in my view to a hybrid membership of the EU Customs Union and Single market and further the EU would hold a veto over our ability to exit," Chishti wrote in the letter. "The UK in effect will be a part of a system where it will be a rule taker without any say on the rules."

At the same time, other officials joined the wave of resignations: Ranil Malcolm Jayawardena, a British Conservative Party politician, resigned as Parliamentary Private Secretaries (PPS) at the Ministry of Justice, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The White Nationalist Manifesto reviewed by Gregory Hood

A timely and timeless statement of our values.
The word “racist” has been so overused it means virtually nothing. The same thing is beginning to happen with “white nationalist,” the label journalists have chosen for their opponents during the Donald Trump years. As Karl Marx once noted of the word “communist,” there is hardly a conservative faction, individual, or party that has not been accused of “white nationalism.” Yet unlike “racist,” which was always a slur, “white nationalist” has a real meaning. As Marx said of communists, it is time for white nationalists to publish their views and aims, and counter the nursery tale of the White Nationalist Menace with a manifesto. Greg Johnson has done just that, and in so doing has provided a focus for the entire movement.
The White Nationalist Manifesto clearly lays out the threat to the white race, the moral justification for resisting extinction, and the rationale for white homelands as the best way to ensure survival. Dr. Johnson is an ethnonationalist who believes each ethnicity should have a homeland. He denies the existence of “generic white people,” and would oppose a grand Imperium uniting the entire race.

This distinction is crucial because white nationalism thus becomes a logical extension of patriotism: “We have to assert that being white is a necessary condition of belonging to any European national group, although of course we acknowledge that a shared language, culture, and history are also necessary.” White nationalists are the true defenders of existing nation-states.
Dr. Johnson also answers the question of whether “a worldwide European diaspora of a hundred flags, in which every self-conscious nation has at least one sovereign homeland” would lead to conflict and war as it has in the past. He argues that ethnostates would be “good neighbors to one another” because each would have a secure identity and sense of place that would encourage positive relations between peoples. Distinct homelands based on common peoplehood would encourage respect for the peoplehood of others and foster international trust. And even with distinct homelands, pan-European high culture and cooperation in matters of technology would help unify the white world.
Dr. Johnson also explains why nationalists cannot avoid talking about race. As he notes, the taboo against speaking in defense of white interests is a potentially fatal one that applies to no other group. Whiteness is considered a legitimate concept if it is used to punish whites, but suddenly becomes illegitimate when whites defend themselves. European national identities cannot be separated from whiteness; the pursuit of distinct homelands is fully consistent with a celebration of whites’ nature as “one extended family.”
Despite his attachment to ethnonationalism, Dr. Johnson seems to suggest that today, racial solidarity is more important than national solidarity. Echoing Sam Francis, Dr. Johnson argues that whites are attacked as whites, not as Germans or Frenchmen or Americans. Thus, “[W]hen Europeans resist ethnic displacement, they will increasingly regard their race as their nation and their skin as their uniform.” One could even argue that at the current stage of our efforts, there is already a new “nation” of racially aware Europeans who have more in common with each other than their fellow citizens.

And So It Begins: House Dems Move to Ban AR Parts Kits by JORDAN MICHAELS

Democrats filed H.R. 7115 even before they regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and now that they hold a solid majority, they’re ready to make their gun control fantasies come true.
Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr., a Democrat from New Jersey, filed the legislation on November 2, 2018, and it’s being co-sponsored by 13 additional representatives. The bill would “prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machinegun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes.”
Legislators dubbed the bill the “3–D Firearms Prohibitions Act,” though the text doesn’t mention 3-D printed firearms anywhere beyond the title.
Under H.R. 7115, gun manufacturers would no longer be permitted to sell partially machined receivers for “assault rifles.” Also called “80 percent lowers,” these items do not qualify as “firearms” under U.S. law and have long been a target of gun-control lobbyists because they allow individuals to create “ghost guns,” or firearms without serial numbers.

SEE ALSO: House Dems Will Seek to Criminalize Private Transfers in 2019

For those wanting to manufacture a firearm without using an 80 percent lower, H.R. 7115 also requires all individual firearm makers to request a serial number from the federal government before creating a firearm. The prospective gun maker would contact a federal firearms dealer, who would issue the number using the same process as any other firearms transfer.

Killing Time With the Coen Brothers by Steve Sailer

Killing Time With the Coen Brothers
The Coen brothers’ eighteenth movie, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, might be their whitest yet, despite Mrs. Joel Coen, Frances McDormand, having devoted her Best Actress speech at last March’s Oscars to demanding “inclusion.”
Since Blood Simple in 1984, Joel and Ethan Coen have never much concerned themselves with anybody’s demands for “representation.” Yet Buster Scruggs takes this old tendency of theirs to a new high.
An anthology of six premises for cowboy movies that the Coens have come up with over the years, Buster Scruggs features a cast—the biggest names in it are Liam Neeson, Brendan Gleeson, James Franco, Tom Waits, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tyne Daly (in, curiously, a role that would normally be played by McDormand)—whom the Hispanophilic John Wayne would have found problematically lacking in diversity. Heck, Bonanza featured more nonwhites than does Buster Scruggs (which will debut this Friday on Netflix).
Of course, being “represented” in a movie by the mordant Coens isn’t self-esteem-building. The white characters in Buster Scruggs tend to be homicidal, grasping, or, at best, long-winded.
The only nonwhites in the entire movie are American Indians. They savagely attack twice, comically in the jokey second segment starring Franco as a lowbrow bank robber, thrillingly in the grand next-to-last episode, “The Girl Who Got Rattled,” in which a heroic wagon-train guide makes a one-man stand against a Sioux raid.
This fifth episode of Buster Scruggs features the film’s only romance, starring an excellent Zoe Kazan, the granddaughter of the famous director Elia Kazan, as a well-spoken young woman on the Oregon Trail. “The Girl” is based on an exciting 1901 short story by the almost forgotten Western novelist Stewart Edward WhiteBuster Scruggs reproduces White’s dialogue almost word for word from this passage:
“Now, listen to every word,” he said, rapidly. “Those Injins is goin’ to rush us in a minute….
“And if they kill me first”—he reached forward and seized her wrist impressively—“If they kill me first, you must take that pistol and shoot yourself. Understand? Shoot yourself—in the head—here!” He tapped his forehead with a stubby forefinger….

Jair Bolsonaro And The Populist Crisis In Brazil

Establishment parties, the corporate press, and the major banks of Brazil are in a state of panic. The reason is not the financial and political disaster that has afflicted the country since around 2015, but the insurgent candidacy of a colorful outsider and the possibility he might win. After Duterte, Trump, Brexit, Le Pen, Kurz, Salvini and Abe in Europe and Asia, this global phenomenon should by now feel familiar; but in each new case, calcified institutions and their spokesmouths react with the same surprise and outrage. The latest and, for America and the Western world, the most instructive example is this summer in Brazil, where Jair Bolsonaro stands a good chance of becoming the next president.
The convulsions Brazil has experienced over the last few years are unprecedented—at least since democracy was reestablished in the 1980s. One president, Dilma Rousseff, was impeached. Her predecessor Lula da Silva—a figure who for the Brazilian left and also for much of the international left was almost as significant in Brazil as Obama was in the United States—is now in jail. Eike Batista, just a few years ago one of the wealthiest men in the world, an Elon Musk-like futurist who was preparing to revitalize many old neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro, now has a negative net worth, stands convicted of bribery, and is looking at a thirty-year sentence. The economy is in its worst recession—really a depression—in Brazilian history.
As an on-and-off resident of Rio for some years, I can see how the downturn is felt in day-to-day life, by both rich and poor. The famous Maracana stadium was, at the depth of the crisis, turned into a “ghost” shell of itself; the elegant Theatro Municipal in downtown Rio is mostly shut down for lack of funds, as are many of the city’s other landmarks. Long-established businesses have closed with nothing to replace them; shuttered storefronts, empty bars and restaurants, are a common sight. Worst of all is the crime and lawlessness. The chief driver of criminality has been lack of pay for police, which for a while almost abandoned the streets of even middle-class neighborhoods; the military was invited instead to provide security in the city, as well as for other parts of Brazil that have experienced police strikes. In the better neighborhoods, the situation is not as bad and the danger is often exaggerated, but people live in fear: the streets are empty after 10 PM and many businesses have had to either shut down or shift their hours as a result. The few who can turn to private security firms.
After Rousseff’s impeachment, supported by the vast majority of Brazilians, there was little hope that Michel Temer, the new president, could fix any of these problems. His government pursued a textbook neoliberal reform program of austerity with unfortunately familiar results; he currently enjoys an approval rating in the single digits, and his administration has also been caught up in corruption scandals. Given the severity of the economic and political crisis since 2015 and the failure of Temer’s government to do anything at all about it, it shouldn’t be surprising that people are desperate for something new. Jair Bolsonaro, a nationalist and populist congressman long regarded by the international left as the “most hateful” politician in the democratic world, might be the next president.
Bolsonaro’s background and his views are alarming and possibly confusing to the establishment, but familiar, encouraging, and reassuring to middle-class Brazilians. He is a military man and known as such: trained in a military academy, then a parachutist and captain, he had according to many a distinguished and even brilliant career in the army; he became known nationally after he stood up to the top brass during the 1980s transition period when the new democratic regime was trying to purge the military.
In the early 1990s, he was elected to local government in Rio de Janeiro and then to congress, after which he remained a perpetual maverick and outsider, focused on the corruption of the new Brazil, on the defense of the military against the new left, and on matters of law and order. Law and order, and the problem of criminality, have since at least 1990 been a crucial concern of the Brazilian working and middle classes. To Brazil’s new liberal elite, promoted by the civil educational system and by multiple NGOs—many supported by the United States State Department—it is Bolsonaro’s connection to the military that is most troubling.

Pope Orders US Bishops to Be as Negligent as the Vatican Is Written by Michael Matt

US Bishops were told by the Vatican today to suspend taking any action to address the sexual abuse scandals that have been rocking the Church over the past year.
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the USCCB and archbishop of Galveston-Houston, Texas, announced at the Conference’s national annual meeting this morning that the United States bishops’ expected vote on a new code of conduct for bishops would be postponed for several months.
Cardinal DiNardo told the assembly that the Vatican had requested that actions be delayed until after a global meeting on sexual abuse which is scheduled to take place in February, 2019.
“I remain hopeful that this additional consultation will ultimately improve our response to the crisis we face,” Cardinal DiNardo said.
Cardinal DiNardo’s announcement appeared to be a shock to most of the bishops assembled, who up until this morning had expected the voting to take place Tuesday as planned.
Several of the bishops in attendance expressed disappointment or concern about the delay, believing that actions should take place as quickly as possible to begin to rectify the situation and repair the damage done to the relationship between the faithful and the Church.
“This kind of thing is a blow to what we’re trying to overcome here in the United States – the perception of a hierarchy that is unresponsive to the reality of the tragedy,” said Bishop Shawn McKnight of Jefferson City, who became a bishop this year.
Among many who are scoffing at the latest Vatican sabotage, Anne Barrett Doyle, co-director, called this last-minute order “truly incredible.”
“What we see here is the Vatican again trying to suppress even modest progress by the U.S. bishops,” said Doyle, whose group compiles data on clergy abuse in the church. “We’re seeing where the problem lies, which is with the Vatican. The outcome of this meeting, at best, was going to be tepid and ineffectual, but now it’s actually going to be completely without substance."
REMNANT COMMENT: So much for decentralizing the governance of the Catholic Church.  Bergoglio is beginning to make Borgia look like pussy cats.
But does Pope Francis really think he can have it both ways?  On the one hand, he claims to want decentralization and greater freedom for the bishops to make their own rules regarding liturgy and moral theology. But when things don't go his way, he behaves more like an unhinged mob boss with a laundry list of vendettas to settle. Which is it, Holiness? The Synodal Church of Accompaniment, or the Bergoglian Church of Cosa Nostra?

Ending Election Fraud By Daniel John Sobieski

Enough is enough. Election after election, boxes of Democrat ballots show up in counties run by Democratic election supervisors to benefit Democratic candidates who, once they steal their opponent’s election night victory, will join the chorus warning of Russian interference in our elections. Last time I checked, there were no Russian election officials in Palm Beach or Broward counties in Florida.
Democrats have long pushed for voting ease at the expense of voting integrity, pushing measures from voting by mail, to Motor Voter laws, to same-day registration while opposing voter ID laws which requires people to show up on election day with proof they are who they say they are. They claim Voter ID laws are designed to disenfranchise voters. So does the sudden appearance of mystery ballots days, even weeks, after elections without a documented chain of custody or certainty that other ballots weren’t destroyed or that the ballots found were cast by real, live American citizens.
One is reminded of the classic case of an arguably close stolen election, the 1960 presidential contest between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and the vote early, vote often city of Chicago where voting was such a passion that death was no impediment to that civic duty:
At some point on election night Robert Kennedy, the candidate's brother and campaign manager, was counting electoral votes. Information was coming in quickly through the television networks but there was not much information on Illinois, a very large state. Most of Illinois was rural and traditionally Republican and the state's largest city, Chicago (then the second largest city in the country as I recall), was and remains heavily Democratic. The mayor of Chicago at the time was Richard J Daley, reputedly a powerful political boss. There was no information at all from Chicago and its suburbs at this point and it was coming in scattered from the prairie regions. Robert Kennedy wanted to know how many votes Mayor Daley and his people had counted in Chicago.
Daley was harried, dealing with precincts all over the city, trying to compile and report them at an alarming rate. His answer to Robert Kennedy's question on vote totals was reputedly, "How many votes do you need?" The campaign manager told the Mayor he'd get back to him and Mayor Daley called with a vote total about an hour later, shortly before Illinois' heavily Democratic total was reported on the three major television networks.
As election night victories seemingly slip away from GOP candidates like Martha McSally in Arizona, Brian Kemp in Georgia, and Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in Florida, one can almost hear Democrat operatives and election officials asking the same question -- how many votes does the Democrat candidate need? As in the race that put Al Franken in the Senate, recounts and lawsuits will inevitably continue until the Democrat takes the lead and then the counting will stop with nary a protest from the legacy media or the Russians.
Take the little-noticed flip of a Republican congressional seat in New Mexico after a supposed election night victory was announced by local and national media for the GOP contender. This was the announcement by ABC:
Wednesday 2:18 a.m. EST -- Republican Yvette Herrell has defeated Democrat Xochitl Torres Small in New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, ABC News can project. Herrell is the first woman to represent the district.

Liberals vs. Mother Nature: Freddie Mercury, AIDS, and Minority-Worship

Who is the biggest hate-criminal in the world? There’s only one contender and you may be shocked to learn that it’s a female. Worse still, that female is as immortal as she is immoral. For millennia, she’s been hating on humanity, discriminating between different groups and imposing inequality, preventing women from matching the intellectual, cultural and physical achievements of men, flatly refusing to allow sub-Saharan Africans to flourish in science, mathematics and philosophy.
Hateful, horrible and heretical
Yes, let me introduce you to that hateful, horrible and heretical harridan known as Mother Nature. Quite clearly she is the biggest hate-criminal there ever has been and ever will be. Forgetthe Patriarchy: it’s the Matriarchy, the rule of Mother Nature, that really explains why the world is such an unfair and unequal place.  She’s responsible for that vast and on-going hate-crime known as human evolution, whereby human beings in different environments have acquired different bodies, brains and psychologies. In other words, race exists and different races aren’t equal. Mother Nature hasn’t treated Homo as a special, post-biological genus. She didn’t relax natural selection when human beings invented new technologies like fire, the bow-and-arrow, and the written word. Instead, she accelerated it. Neanderthals had to be robust and muscular because they hunted at close range, but that selective pressure was removed whenHomo sapiens developed throwing-spears and poisoned arrows. Slender Bushmen bring down giraffe and rhinoceros with ingenuity and cunning, not brute strength and aggression.
But Mother Nature doesn’t commit her hate-crimes at the same rate all over the earth. There are hot-spots of hate, that is, places where human evolution has operated in particularly interesting and complex ways. One of the most intense hot-spots is the Indian subcontinent, the region of Asia that stretches from Pakistan in the west to Bangladesh in the east and Sri Lanka in the far south, with India in the middle. The subcontinent is what you could call anS.S.S.I. — a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Mother Nature has been very busy there for a very long time. Whether you’re interested in geology, zoology, or botany, in archaeology, anthropology or linguistics, in religion, literature or philosophy, the Indian subcontinent is a fascinating place.

But the most important part of its dazzling variety may turn out to be its genetics. It’s one of the places where Mother Nature has most comprehensively blasphemed against the liberal dogma that “We’re All the Same under the Skin.” In fact, we aren’t, and the Indian subcontinent provides abundant proof. The genetic complexity introduced by ancient invasions and migrations was further enhanced by the intricate rules of the Hindu caste system, whereby different professions and classes were banned from intermarriage. This created a whole series of ethnicities and micro-ethnicities, as genetic lines separated, occupied different cultural environments, and evolved in different ways. Literacy and mastery of complex intellectual systems were compulsory for Brahmins, but prohibited for Dalits.
Sectarian supernovae
Today, India is one of the most genetically complex and cognitively stratified nations on earth. It has groups with high average IQ and groups with low average IQ. The self-taught Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887–1920) was a Tamil Brahmin who contributed more to mathematics in a short lifetime than many millions of sub-Saharan Blacks have in centuries. He was like a supernova outshining all the millions of stars in a galaxy.
You could say the same of the Pakistani scientist Abdus Salam (1926–96). He contributed more to physics in seventy years of life than many millions of Blacks have in centuries. And he won a Nobel Prize in 1979 for his contributions. It was the first scientific Nobel ever won by a Muslim — at least, that’s what infidels outside Pakistan would say. But in Pakistan itself it’sillegal to say Salam was a Muslim, because he belonged to a heretical sect known as the Ahmadis, who are persecuted in Muslim countries (and outside them — see the murder of the Ahmadi shopkeeper Asad Shah in Glasgow). But is it genetically significant that Abdus Salam was Ahmadi? Has the group evolved or preserved higher intelligence by separation and interbreeding? Or were Salam’s caste and clan the important thing? He was a “Jat of Rajput descent from Jhang on his father’s side” and “a Kakazai from Gurdaspur” on his mother’s.
