Richard Spencer Forces The Truth About Demographics Out Of Me

Conservatism, Democrats, Ilana Mercer, IMMIGRATION, Politics, Republicans

Richard Spencer forced the Meta out of me on demographics. He was probably right to do it. In a blog post,Candace Owens In Immigration Wonderland, ‘Discovers’ Demography,” I had marveled at how Candace has discovered a plot to change the country’s demographics and thanked Tucker for helping her get the word out.

Hmm. I wonder what Peter Brimelow, Michelle Malkin, Steve Sailer, Ann Coulter or myself have been writing about for decades? Next, Candace will discover that, “legal immigration is the real catastrophe.” (from “IMMOLATION BY IMMIGRATION,” 2003.)

Tweeted Richard:

Ilana, how long are you guys going to complain about “demographics”? If your goal is to sustain a 1950s White America, that is clearly impossible at this point. Secondly, Hispanic waves are clearly not decisive in creating cultural change; they might even be retardant. …

And:

You guys have this issue, to which you have no real solution, but which you can complain about *endlessly*.

Mercer:

“You guys”? U lump my thinking b/c you haven’t read it w/care. Had u, you’d know I no longer write about immigration for a reason, to quote 11/020: “U might have to accept the Tipping Point has arrived.” I focus on anti-politics & ethnocide awareness, notice? Think before u lump, sir.

Richard:

Fair enough. Just reacting to the people you mentioned. Ann Coulter discovered demographics precisely at the point that nothing could be done. She’ll have a lot to whine about in upcoming columns.

Mercer:

Republicans keep the dance going; like liars that they are, the players move into opposition place to pretend ‘Democrats did it; they ended America.’ Maybe it’s good you made me state where I am. But it’s obvious from my focus. The Candace blog post was a historic comment.

 I try not to broadcast the Mercer meta, because of dumb clones, but careful readers will have noticed a focus on dismantling [conservative] Orwellian speak, in service of combating enthnocide a la South Africa. I’m in anti-politics, GOP/RIP mode, highlighting duopoly politics as Big LIE.

As for Candace Owens, let me repeat: “A media conservative has no intellectual history or coherent philosophy; he or she is but a grab-bag of talking points. For the media conservative, the history of ideas begins when he or she gets their TV gig. All is tabula rasa before that. The GOP circus goes on—on TV.”

UPDATED (5/5): The Politicians And The Presstitute Circle Jerk

America, Celebrity, Ethics, Media, Politics, THE ELITES, The Establishment

Conflict of interest equals corruption. Yet, it is the modus operandi of major media in America, left and right. There is a “revolving door between media and successive administrations.”

Josh Hawley, a politician and friend of the Tucker Carlson Show, is on a book tour. My tongue is firmly in my cheek when I say this, because a politician should not serve any interests other than the people who pay him. Their fame or notoriety comes from the fact of their election. Using their position, paid for by the taxpayers, to aggrandize and enrich themselves is unethical and disgusting.

Writing and promoting books on the job, accepting book deals, paid lectures: These, in my opinion, should be outlawed.

Hawley’s book, I assure you, is inconsequential. Politicians are mostly inconsequential, banal minds. The book’s central, hackneyed “idea” of breaking up Big Tech, will help you NOT ONE BIT if you’ve been financially deplatformed and your speech, also the source of your income, has been throttled. Case closed. (A far better route is hinted at in my Deep Tech piece.)

As I observed in “Brian Williams: Member Of Media Circle Jerk,” America’s presstitutes are “no better than the lobbyists and the politicians they petition, they move seamlessly between their roles as activists, experts and anchors; publishers and authors; talkers and product peddlers; pinups and pontificators.”

No sooner does a politician, left or right, make a name for himself through media channels, than he starts peddling product: throw-away books, for one. Again: Any profit off a tax-payer funded office should be prohibited. It has to be.

Network friends entertain each other on their respective shows, making an even greater  mockery out of the typical canned TV “debate.” They do it all the time. The public doesn’t seem to care that their heroes are corrupt.

And family members hop on the gravy train.

Ethical practices entail keeping your (journalistic) work and friendships APART—just as you should keep your wife out of the office of the president (the late Mugabe) and your kids out of the White House (Trump). The avoidance of conflicts of interest was once grasped by people, too.

The corrupt and avaricious American media conceal these practice, because they want to partake in what is lucrative, career-advancing corruption.

What Fox News’ Howard Kurtz says below is all well and good, except listen to this:

“You know, there’s nothing inherently wrong with this game of musical chairs. It’s no secret that many high-profile people have moved back and forth between Fox News and Trump administration,” Kurtz concluded. “But it does seem that more journalists join Democratic administrations like Biden’s.”

In the car, the other day, on the radio, I heard Jason Rantz, a local radio host, enthusiastically repeating the “nothing inherently wrong” mantra to his listeners. See, Jason  and his ilk would like to flit between radio and politics; between commenting about the news to making news. They’d, moreover, like you to believe that the revolving door is ethical. It isn’t.

Via Mediaite:

Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz cited Joe Biden’s Secretary of State pick and CNN global affairs analyst Antony Blinken as the latest example of the “revolving door” between the media and presidential administrations, Tuesday.

“When Joe Biden does unveil Tony Blinken as his pick for Secretary of State today, he’ll be introducing the global affairs analyst for CNN, which Blinken joined after working at the top of the Obama State Department,” Kurtz noted in a segment on America’s Newsroom.

“This revolving door is spinning even more quickly between the media and the government,” he continued, pointing out that “there’s a mini exodus at MSNBC for Obama veterans who became cable pundits,” and who are now leaving to join Biden’s presidential transition team.

Rick Stengel, former Time Magazine editor, had joined the Obama State Department, now has left MSNBC for the Biden transition,” Kurtz went on. “Also leaving MSNBC for the transition… former Obama prosecutor Barbara McQuade and Zeke Emanuel, medical expert who worked on Covid strategy. Jen Psaki, who many may remember as Obama’s State Department spokeswoman, has left CNN for the transition.”

Kurtz explained that “sometimes, the connections are behind the scenes,” citing “former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham [who] was an NBC and MSNBC contributor, but dropped from that role for helping Biden with some of his speeches without disclosing that to viewers

This revolving door between cable media, neoliberal (CNN) or neocon (Fox), and the D.C. duopoly, notwithstanding, it’s time to switch off the game show that is the incoherent, celebrity-driven, Big Con Inc. If you haven’t; you’re part of the problem.

UPDATED (5/5): I forgot to mention that on Tucker’s show, last night (5/4), Josh Hawley also alluded to:

“…Big government run by the Left.”

The very same permanent state was run by the “Right” until January.  LOL.

Come on. The Deep State and the hydra-headed horror of a government that heads it is seamlessly unseemly.

Bakari Sellers Steps Out As The New Star In The ‘Racism-Industrial-Complex’

Business, Criminal Injustice, Media, Politics, Race, Racism

Bakari Sellers, a presentable young man, is a CNN commentator, a lawyer in a lucrative practice, and, naturally, a radical progressive. Here he is speaking on personal matters in what is clearly an accent almost indistinguishable from that of his CNN host.

A man with the political promise of Sellers, Esq., would be remiss if he didn’t entrench himself in the “Racism-Industrial-Complex” (Jack Kerwick’s coinage for this shakedown fraternity).

So, Sellers has joined the usual suspects, members of the “Racism-Industrial-Complex,” in doing battle against an embattled police force for the killing of one Andrew Brown Jr, “fatally shot by cops last week in Elizabeth City, [North Carolina, I believe] where witnesses say he was driving away when deputies opened fire on him. After the shooting, 7 deputies were placed on administrative leave and 3 resigned.” (TMZ)

I note that Laura Ingraham, far from a favorite of mine (see “A Traditionalist Lesson For Laura Ingraham“), had picked up on the issue of Sellers’ new twang. On that we can agree.

America Has More Political Appointees In Its Federal Government Than Any Other Developed Democracy

Debt, Federal Reserve Bank, Government, Political Economy, Politics, Republicans

“Shut the hell up”: That’s what you say to the next Republican who bleats at you about the GOP being the party of small government.

If GOPers then argue that governments have grown the world over, but the American government is still the smallest: Yet more lies.

Reports the Economist:

America has far more political appointees in its federal government, some 4,000 in all, than any other developed democracy, according to David Lewis, a political scientist at Vanderbilt University. No one ever really stops to wonder whether, if so many roles can sit empty, all these jobs are needed in the first place. [Of course we wonder out-loud; you just don’t listen]

Presidents used to be free to hand out every job in the government. But in 1881 a spurned office-seeker assassinated President James Garfield. His successor, Chester Arthur, signed into law the act creating the civil service and, with it, the seeds of a permanent bureaucracy that would grow from administration to administration, developing many fine public servants along with an unknown quantity of rot.

In the case that Republicans then tell you that the Democrats have, exclusively, presided over the growth of government that, too, is tummy rot.

“Contrary to popular myth,” wrote James Ostrowski, President of Free Buffalo, in 2002, “every Republican president since and including Herbert Hoover has increased the federal government’s size, scope, or power—and usually all three. Over the last one hundred years, of the five presidents who presided over the largest domestic spending increases, four were Republicans.”

“Include regulations and foreign policy, as well as budgets approved by a Republican Congress, and a picture begins to emerge of the Republican Party as a reliable engine of government growth.”

The Evil Party and the Stupid Party are a political match made in hell.

Most ludicrous is that these huckster Republicans still believe there’s a case to be made for “small government.” Have they looked at the debt clock? Do they think the American State will ever again be small; can ever be shrunk?

National debt stands at over $28 trillion. Each individual taxpayer owes $225,000—and while government will just print money to satisfy and procure voters—Quantitative Easing ad infinitum—taxpayers will still be expected to pay-up on pains of imprisonment.

The Small-Government ship has sailed and some Republicans don’t even know it.
