The Toxoplasma of Rage

18th December 2014

Read it.

The University of Virginia rape case profiled in Rolling Stone has fallen apart. In doing so, it joins a long and distinguished line of highly-publicized rape cases that have fallen apart. Studies often show that only 2 to 8 percent of rape allegations are false. Yet the rate for allegations that go ultra-viral in the media must be an order of magnitude higher than this. As the old saying goes, once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action.

The enigma is complicated by the observation that it’s usually feminist activists who are most instrumental in taking these stories viral. It’s not some conspiracy of pro-rape journalists choosing the most dubious accusations in order to discredit public trust. It’s people specifically selecting these incidents as flagship cases for their campaign that rape victims need to be believed and trusted. So why are the most publicized cases so much more likely to be false than the almost-always-true average case?

Vandalized: Residence of U-M Student Who Dared to Mock Trigger Warnings

16th December 2014

Read it.

Omar Mahmood is a student at the University of Michigan. He considers himself a political conservative and a Muslim. And until recently, he enjoyed writing for both of the campus’s newspapers: the institutional, liberal paper, The Michigan Daily, and the conservative alternative paper, The Michigan Review.

After penning a satirical op-ed for The Review that mocked political correctness and trigger warnings, The Daily ordered him to apologize to an anonymous staffer who was offended and felt “threatened” by him. He refused and was fired.

Last week, he became the victim of what The College Fix has described as a “hate crime.” The doorway of his apartment was vandalized in the middle of the night; the perpetrators pelted the door with eggs and scribbled notes like “shut the fuck up” and “everyone hates you you violent prick.” They left copies of the offending column and a print-out picture of Satan.

The column that caused such a controversy, “Do the Left Thing,” was published in The Review last month. It’s a first-person narrative in which Mahmood pretends to be a left-handed person who is offended by the institutional patriarchy of right-handedness.

Attacks on Banks, Paid For By Banks?

15th December 2014

Read it.

Of course, if the Democrats want to base their 2016 campaign on anti-bank populism, they will have to deal with the fact that the financial industry contributed more money to Barack Obama’s campaigns than any industry has contributed to any candidate in the nation’s history. Why might that be? The Democratic Party is, and has been for a long time, the party of Wall Street. The congruence between the Obama administration’s policies and Goldman Sachs’s interests is almost perfect. Will Elizabeth Warren really disrupt that alliance? Or will banks fund the Democrats’ demagogic attacks on themselves? The latter, I suspect. Wall Street will assume that Warren is a hypocrite, whereas I think she is just a liar.

Greenpeace Mars Peruvian Nazca Lines Site

In connection with the UN Climate Change conference in Peru (Ronald Bailey writes about that here) Greenpeace activists marched across the off-limits Peruvian site of the world-famous Nazca Lines, near its iconic hummingbird, leaving foot marks which the Peruvian government says marred the site, in order to lay out huge yellow cloth reading “TIME FOR CHANGE The Future is Renewable Greenpeace.”

Greenpeace is composed of people whose universe didn’t exist until they were born, and  who consider themselves the crown of creation.

Obama Supporter: ‘Obamacare Has Hurt My Family’

10th December 2014

Read it.

Case in point: Obama supporter Catherine Keefe. On Wednesday, the Washington Post published an essay by Keefe lamenting the ways “Obamacare has hurt my family.” Keefe says her husband Jim was recovering from open-heart surgery when Obama was elected and that she was “elated” that Obama’s promise of health care reform would benefit she and her husband–a hope that never came to fruition.

First came the cancellation of both Keefe and her husband’s insurance plans, a pain experienced by nearly 5 million Americans whose plans were canceled by Obamacare. Keefe says Obama’s now-infamous broken promise–“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan”–was her and her husband’s “biggest disappointment.”

Next came the realization that another Obama promise–“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”–was also untrue.

Finally, Keefe says the endless hassles, higher premiums, and bureaucratic hoop jumping leaves her and her husband with nagging doubts and worries about what the future portends.

Be careful what you vote for.

‘Why I’m Giving Up My Passport’

9th December 2014

Read it.

Some 3,000 Americans gave up their citizenship last year, a tiny number that’s nevertheless been soaring. Yes, a few expatriates may be trying to avoid future taxes, as Senator Charles E. Schumer accused the Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin of doing two years ago, when Mr. Saverin, who lives in Singapore, surrendered his passport ahead of the company’s initial public offering.

But most, like me, are not tycoons. We’re responding to the burden and cost of onerous financial reporting and tax filing requirements that are neither fair nor just. (Living and working in London, I pay higher taxes, to Britain, than I would in New York.)

Some 7.6 million Americans live abroad — expats would be the 13th most populous state, if we were a state. Many are overseas temporarily, for work or study. But many others marry foreigners, start companies or have long-term overseas assignments. We are just like ordinary Americans — except that we lack representation.

The United States is an outlier: Its extraterritorial tax laws apply to American citizens and companies no matter where they are. We are the only country (except, arguably, Eritrea) that taxes all of its citizens on worldwide income rather than where the income is earned. Expatriate Americans have to pay taxes once, wherever they live, and then file again in the United States.

The Road to Green Hell Is Paved With Sustainable-Development Initiatives

7th December 2014

Read it.

Sustainable-development theorists’ aversion to, and environmental activists’ dislike for, synthetic products, long-distance trade and economies of scale is most unfortunate. True, manufacturing operations are not yet perfect, but the ‘green’ alternatives touted as inherently superior, from organic food to local and smaller-scale productions, are typically much worse.

Natural dyes are a case in point. What well-meaning activists and ‘enviropreneurs’ miss is that their ‘solution’ to a largely non-existent problem would come not only with a hefty price for consumers (in terms of paying a lot more for inferior products), but it would also affect the environment given that many parts of the world that have been allowed to ‘rewilden’ in the past few decades would need to be, once again, put under the plough.

Market processes are not perfect, but they constantly reward the development of more efficient and less problematic alternatives over time. Ignoring the lessons of business and technological history can only deliver a poorer and more environmentally stressed world.

Relatives Gather to Mourn Bosnian Man Murdered in St. Louis Hammer Attack

6th December 2014

Read it.

As relatives of Zemir Begic prepare for his funeral Saturday, neither they nor police detectives appear to have any idea what caused a pack of teens to beat him to death with hammers on a St. Louis street.

No motive has been identified in the Begic murder, according to investigators. But members of the close-knit Bosnian community are questioning whether Begic’s death and other crimes committed within the past year in the neighborhood are racially charged — and they’re calling on a larger police presence on St. Louis’s south side. Begic was white, while Mitchell and one of the two juveniles are black, and the other is Hispanic.

They were black, and he was white — what could their motivation have been? It’s just so puzzling!

That’s the rabbit, and we take our eyes off it at our peril.

Finding Meaning in Ferguson: What the New York Times Won’t Tell You

3rd December 2014

Read it.

The Times is silent about that evidence, of course. Blood and DNA traces demonstrated that Brown had initiated the altercation by attacking Wilson while Wilson was inside his car. Brown then tried to grab Wilson’s gun, presumably to shoot him. Such an assault on a law-enforcement officer is nearly as corrosive to the rule of law and a stable society as rioting. But to the mainstream media, it is apparently simply normal behavior not worth mentioning when a black teenager attacks a cop, just as it was apparently normal and beneath notice that Brown had strong-armed a box of cigarillos from a shopkeeper moments before Wilson accosted him for walking in the middle of the street. Amazingly, anyone who brought up that earlier videoed felony was accused of besmirching Brown’s character, even though the robbery was highly relevant to the encounter that followed (and showed that Brown did not have much character to besmirch in the first place, something his sealed juvenile records would likely have confirmed).

The Murder of Zemir Begic, a “Random” Act of Violence

3rd December 2014

Read it.

The Right has long noted that the mainstream media uses the word “teen” as a euphemism whenever a minority commits a violent crime. And that euphemism certainly saw use in this case, in which two of the arrested killers are Black and the third is Latino. But the MSM (the sites that can be bothered to report on this situation, that is) in this case has also been employing a euphemism of more recent vintage: “random.” Like “teen,” which is used to obfuscate the race of the criminals when it challenges the PC worldview, the word “random” is used to obfuscate the motive of the crime when it discomfits that worldview.

You see, there is no general pattern to mob violence, and there’s certainly no racial pattern to mob violence. It’s just random. It could pop up anywhere at any time. And there is no possible way that the killers in this particular case were influenced by the anti-White animus of the nearby Ferguson riots. Of course not! It was pure random chance that this motley group of thugs beset and murdered a total stranger who just happened to be White.

Chris Rock Stopped Performing for Students Because Everything Offends Them

2nd December 2014

Read it.

What do you make of the attempt to bar Bill Maher from speaking at Berkeley for his riff on Muslims?

Well, I love Bill, but I stopped playing colleges, and the reason is because they’re way too conservative.

In their political views?

Not in their political views — not like they’re voting Republican — but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of “We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose.” Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say “the black kid over there.” No, it’s “the guy with the red shoes.” You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.

When did you start to notice this?

About eight years ago. Probably a couple of tours ago. It was just like, This is not as much fun as it used to be. I remember talking to George Carlin before he died and him saying the exact same thing.

As Obama Huddles with Sharpton, Invest in World Star Hip Hop

Steve Sailer keeps trotting out facts that undercut The Narrative.

As you’ll recall, one cause of the rage of the privilege class in the prestige press is that in recent years, Americans have been able to increasingly watch on sites like World Star Hip Hop clips of blacks behaving badly. The national media have responded by turning the volume on the Megaphone up to 11: “Do Not Believe Your Lying Eyes! White Privilege! Black Bodies! Intersectionality! Invisible Knapsacks! Microaggressions!”

The convenience store where Michael Brown began his fatal crime spree had a security camera. The Obama Administration sure didn’t pay attention to that video.

Pack of Teens Beats Man to Death Near Ferguson, but Protests Sparse

2nd December 2014

Read it.

The horrific attack occurred in southwest St. Louis, just 20 miles from Ferguson, where a police shooting of a black man and a grand jury’s subsequent decision not to indict the officer sparked violent riots. Police have arrested three teens and were looking for one or possibly two more in the brutal murder of Begic, 32. The married immigrant who was driving his car when the teens approached at a traffic light and began striking it with hammers, prompting him to get out and confront them, according to police.

Although the victim was white and the suspects black and Hispanic, police said it does not appear to have been a hate crime.

And if you believe that one, they’ll tell you another one.

Nobel Prize for Sale; Bell Curves and Measurements; and the Robots Are Coming.

1st December 2014

Jerry Pournelle is trying his best to be optimistic, but the facts are against him.

Let me once more remind you: half the jobs people are doing now can likely be done by a robot which can be purchased for about the annual cost of the person now doing that job. The government keeps interest rates low. The maintenance costs of the robot will be about 10% a year of what is at present being paid in salary, health care, pension funding, washrooms and comfort facilities, etc. Perhaps we are not there now, but we are approaching that time very rapidly.

And the public schools are increasingly unable to teach anyone to do anything that some else would pay much money to have them do.

Meanwhile, Dr. Watson is selling his Nobel Prize at public auction, and the intelligentsia seems proud of that accomplishment.

When the Law Is a Drag

1st December 2014

Victor Davis Hanson points out that things are pretty bad.

In our cynicism we accept, to avoid further unrest, that no government agency will in six months prosecute the looters and burners, or charge with perjury those who brazenly lied in their depositions to authorities, or charge the companion of Michael Brown with an accessory role in strong-arm robbery, or charge the stepfather of Michael Brown for using a bullhorn to incite a crowd to riot and loot and burn. We accept that because legality is becoming an abstraction, as it is in most parts of the world outside the U.S. where politics makes the law fluid and transient.

Amnesty, granted through a lawless presidential act, will not stop but only encourage further lawlessness. If someone has become used to ignoring a multitude of laws without consequences, there is no reason why he should suddenly cease, given that punishment for breaking the law is still considered a politically-incorrect rather than a legal act — and that even with amnesties it will still be far easier and cheaper to break than obey the law. Who will deport an illegal alien beneficiary of amnesty when he again breaks the law? Amnesty will be seen as both reactive and prophylactic, a waiver for both past and future behavior.

Left Out of the Narrative

30th November 2014

Read it.

The race problem is usually defined in terms of black versus white. But it’s not really that simple. I asked one South African Indian what life was like before and after apartheid. He answered that  ”during apartheid the problem of South African Indians was that they weren’t white. Afterward their problem was that they weren’t black.”

Racism — it’s not just for white people any more.

It’s like the Indian convenience store managers in Ferguson, it’s not that the ‘reconciled’ Ebola fatalities don’t exist; it’s just that we don’t see them due to reporting problems. Yet the victims are as dead as the stores are burned. But it’s not just a problem of Potels or individuals with the Wong name. Oblivion can happen to white guys too. Chuck Hagel has disappeared from the news, which is remarkable because he’s still Secretary of Defense. But we have to rely on the ever retentive Joe Biden to recollect this forgotten man.

Do the Indians in Ferguson matter? Does Chuck Hagel really exist? You tell me.

$4 Toast: Why the Tech Industry Is Ruining San Francisco

30th November 2014

Read it.

In San Francisco, flaunting your wealth has been elevated to new lows, if you will. The labels aren’t the usual lineup of foreign design houses; rather, we pay $300 for simple denim jeans or $200 for plain black yoga pants. We don’t go to the opera; we overspend on the simplest facets of life.

Good toast and a plain cup of coffee shouldn’t cost $6. But I can’t imagine the tech community putting the brakes on this trend any time soon. We’re obsessed with false ideas of quality. We fetishize the precious processes and benchmarks and prices that, in reality, have no bearing on how good something is.

Actually, it ought to read ‘how’ rather than ‘why’, since the author doesn’t really get into the ‘why’, but it’s still an interesting read.

In a word, we want to look smarter. Ours is an intellectual economy and one that prizes polyglotism. We want to show each other that we are amateur audio engineers and brewers and bakers, that we’re not only wealthy but also knowledgable to an unlikely extreme.

Eat FATTY FOODS to Stay THIN. They Might Even Help Your Heart

The rationale is that saturated fats are associated with obesity and risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This is effectively the consensus opinion from government health agencies across much of the world, not just the UK and US.

Does the evidence support this advice? The obvious point is to ask what evidence there is for the core idea that reducing dietary saturated fat intake makes a difference to health. The answer is that there’s not much.

At the time of this speech the grand jury had yet to reach a decision regarding the lawfulness (or not) of the actions of the Ferguson police officer who shot the young black man, Michael Brown.

New Class Order

29th November 2014

Read it.

In this predictably difficult year for the Democrats, the party of the people is turning, of all people, to its plutocrats. However much the party stigmatizes right-wing billionaires like the Koch brothers, a growing proportion of America’s ultra-rich have become devoted Democrats, giving them an edge in fund-raising. Indeed, an analysis of billionaire contributors this year by Politifact found that 13 supported liberals while only nine backed Republicans.

All this reflects a changing class system far more nuanced than the overworked meme about the “1 percent” arrayed against the toiling masses. Instead, we have a plutocracy increasingly divided, mostly along regional and industry lines, among themselves. It’s no surprise voters, notes columnist John Kass, are confused by this recent headline in the Chicago Tribune: “Obama decries income inequality in speech after $50,000-a-person fundraiser for Quinn.”

The Microaggression Farce

Heather MacDonald turns over a rock.

In November 2013, two dozen graduate students at the University of California at Los Angeles marched into an education class and announced a protest against its “hostile and unsafe climate for Scholars of Color.” The students had been victimized, they claimed, by racial “microaggression”—the hottest concept on campuses today, used to call out racism otherwise invisible to the naked eye. UCLA’s response to the sit-in was a travesty of justice. The education school sacrificed the reputation of a beloved and respected professor in order to placate a group of ignorant students making a specious charge of racism.

The Three Generations of Black Mayors in America

29th November 2014

Read it.

A select group of cities elected black mayors during the brief and tumultuous Black Power Era, seeking to implement an activist social justice platform.  These cities – notably Cleveland, Gary, Newark and Detroit among large cities — became stigmatized in a way that few have been able to recover from.   A negative narrative was developed about most of them that stuck, despite considerable efforts to dispel them.  Cities that elected “first black mayors” after the Black Power Era, during a period of relative calm, were able to adapt as the political skill set grew in the African-American community.  However, the Black Power Era’s near-toxic combination of heightened white racism, black disenfranchisement and disillusionment – and ill-prepared black political leadership – accelerated the downfall of these select cities.

If the cities that elected black mayors during this tumultuous period are ever to move forward, to achieve their potential, they must be released from the purgatory they inhabit.

In Ferguson, Witness Intimidation, Lying by ‘Community of Color’

28th November 2014

Read it.

Obama was wrong, at least in the case of Darren Wilson. In viewing thousands of pages of FBI interviews and grand jury testimony, it becomes eminently clear that many members of the local community did make up the story about Michael Brown being executed by Wilson – and pressured others to lie to police or keep silent.

According to the St. Louis County Police Investigative Report, the mob mentality took root almost immediately after the shooting. By the time detectives arrived at the scene of the incident, there was “a large crowd of bystanders and a large uniformed police presence at the scene when detectives arrived.” That crowd included both Brown’s mother and his stepfather, according to witness testimony. The police report states, “Many individuals were clearly upset and were expressing their frustration, by at times yelling obscenities and threats, and attempting to encroach on the crime scene itself.”

‘Black Lives Matter’? More accurately, Black Lies Matter.

Elderly Man With Oxygen Tank Run Over by Ferguson Thieves

28th November 2014

The man, who uses an oxygen tank, was talking to Jaye Perry, 52, of Ferguson in the parking lot of the Faraci Pizza as they watched the rioters. He turned to her and said, “Only in America do you see stuff like this,” then returned to his car to retrieve a new oxygen tank so he could breathe.

Two men collared the man at his car, proceeding to steal it, though the man tried to hold on to his steering wheel. His effort was unfruitful; the men ran over his body as they fled in the car. He called for the tank as he lay on the ground, and was later taken away by ambulance.

I guess Black Lives Matter more than Elderly Lives.

‘Burn This B*tch Down!’ – Brown Family Church Torched in Riots

26th November 2014

Read it. And watch the video.

Although the media is desperate to keep the false narrative alive that the family of Michael Brown is only calling for peace, the fact is that on Monday night, just before all hell broke loose in Ferguson, while Michael Brown’s mother stood silently by, Brown’s stepfather repeatedly ordered the mob surrounding him to “Burn this bitch down!”

The next morning, the Brown family church was one of about a dozen or so buildings burnt to the ground. Worse still, a 20 year-old man was found dead.

Michael Brown was trash and he came from trash, as is becoming increasingly obvious.
