How Europeans Evolved White Skin

30th June 2015

Read it.

Most of us think of Europe as the ancestral home of white people. But a new study shows that pale skin, as well as other traits such as tallness and the ability to digest milk as adults, arrived in most of the continent relatively recently. The work, presented here last week at the 84th annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, offers dramatic evidence of recent evolution in Europe and shows that most modern Europeans don’t look much like those of 8000 years ago.

We are recent mutants, here to take over the world.

It almost worked.

(I didn’t notice where in the article they mention ‘white privilege’ but, the times being what they are, I’m sure it’s in there somewhere.)

Test Pilot Admits the F-35 Can’t Dogfight

30th June 2015

Read it.

A test pilot has some very, very bad news about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The pricey new stealth jet can’t turn or climb fast enough to hit an enemy plane during a dogfight or to dodge the enemy’s own gunfire, the pilot reported following a day of mock air battles back in January.

“The F-35 was at a distinct energy disadvantage,” the unnamed pilot wrote in a scathing five-page brief that War Is Boring has obtained. The brief is unclassified but is labeled “for official use only.”

Well, it’s not as if this is news.

Supreme Court Death Penalty: Writhing Prisoner Took 43 Minutes to Die But Judges Say Use of Midazolam Is Constitutional

29th June 2015

Read it.

Well, gee, how long did it take his victim to die?

Strapped in the gurney, Lockett, convicted of shooting and burying alive a 19-year-old woman, writhed, kicked his legs, breathed heavily and even managed to gasp a word: “Man.” He took 43 minutes to die, rather than the usual ten.

Okay, then. Shoot him and bury him alive. That’s obviously fair. Problem solved.

Gore Is Romney-Rich With $200 Million After Bush Defeat

29th June 2015

Read it.

The Crust take care of their own.

In 1999, Al Gore, then U.S. vice president and a Democratic candidate for president, sold $6,000 worth of cows.

The former senator, who spent most of his working life in Congress, had a net worth of about $1.7 million and assets that included pasture rents from a family farm and royalties from a zinc mine, remnants of his rural roots in Carthage, Tennessee. Funds from the cattle sale went to three of his kids, according to federal disclosure forms filed as part of his presidential run.

Fourteen years later, he made an estimated $100 million in a single month. In January, the Current TV network, which he helped to start in 2004, was sold to Qatari-owned Al Jazeera Satellite Network for about $500 million. After debt, he grossed an estimated $70 million for his 20 percent stake, according to people familiar with the transaction.

Two weeks later, Gore exercised options, at $7.48 a share, on 59,000 shares of Apple Inc. stock that he’d been granted for serving on the Cupertino, California-based company’s board since 2003. On paper, it was about a $30 million payday based on the company’s share price on the day he claimed the options.

That’s a pretty good January for a guy who couldn’t yet call himself a multimillionaire when he briefly slipped from public life after his bitterly contested presidential election loss to George W. Bush in late 2000, based on 1999 and 2000 disclosure forms.

Gore isn’t finished exercising his Apple stock grants. Those 59,000 are part of 101,358 Apple options and shares of restricted stock Gore has amassed, according to company filings, giving his total holdings a gross value of more than $45.6 million today.

The Atlantic Slave Trade in Two Minutes

29th June 2015

Slate actually publishes something useful.

Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s beginning in the 16th century to its conclusion in the 19th, slave merchants brought the vast majority of enslaved Africans to two places: the Caribbean and Brazil. Of the more than 10 million enslaved Africans to eventually reach the Western Hemisphere, just 388,747—less than 4 percent of the total—came to North America. This was dwarfed by the 1.3 million brought to Spanish Central America, the 4 million brought to British, French, Dutch, and Danish holdings in the Caribbean, and the 4.8 million brought to Brazil.

15 Reasons ‘Marriage Equality’ Is About Neither Marriage Nor Equality

29th June 2015

Read it.

Unintended consequences usually come about when we are ignorant or maybe lazy about a course of action. But we usually crash land after following an arc of logic, which in this case has gone largely undiscerned and unaddressed in the public square.

Americans are in a fog about how marriage equality will lead to more central planning and thought policing. This is partly because the media and Hollywood only provide slogans to regurgitate while academics and judges push politically correct speech codes to obey.

Let’s explore the fallout of that arc of faulty logic. Included below are some 15 of the gaping holes in the “marriage equality” reasoning that Americans have not thought through.

Law Prof: Defeat ISIS By Posting Pictures of Gay Marriage

28th June 2015

Read it.

It what may be the silliest expression of triumph at the Supreme Court ruling yesterday legalizing gay marriage across the United States, Rosa Brooks, a law professor at Georgetown University, ponders “Can gay marriage [lacuna] the Islamic State?”

It doesn’t take much to be a law professor these days, apparently. Certainly ideology substitutes for intelligence at a high ratio.

In addition to her post at Georgetown, Brooks is a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, and previously served as a counselor to the U.S. defense undersecretary for policy and as a senior advisor at the U.S. State Department.

My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.

Will Dems Apologize?

28th June 2015

Read it.

In an open letter to DNC Chairman Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz, Jeffrey Lord provides a readout of the tangled history of the Democratic Party with slavery, segregation, lynching, and the Ku Klux Klan. Lord draws on the Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1856 and 1860. He adds that, as the Civil War drew to a close, the Democrats opposed the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment (ending slavery), and proceeded afterwards also to oppose the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. Lord has more, all in the spirit of the moment; Lord calls on Schultz to apologize on behalf of the party.

Will Obama, the chief functionary of the Democrite party and the government employee who most likes to make apologies on behalf of people who have not authorized him to do so, do the right thing.

I’m thinking: No.

State Schools, Not Private Schools, Are the Real Sponsors of Inequality in Britain

28th June 2015

Read it.

In today’s Observer, Will Hutton unwittingly highlights the poverty of the inequality debate in Britain. Gifted writers like him bang on about private schools the whole time rather than look at the far greater problem: inequality within the state system. He devotes a column moaning about the schools which, I suspect, will supply a good chunk of the students he’ll meet in his role as Principal of Hertford College, Oxford.

“Social apartheid,” he says: a lazy analogy, suggesting a binary divide between state and private. In fact, the truth is far worse. Britain doesn’t have a two-tier system: we have a multi-tier system where educational attainment is directly linked to parental wealth. Are you semi-poor? Then your kids can expect semi-bad results. Stinking rich? Then your state school will be one of the best around. And so it continues (see graphic, above). Private schools educate just 7pc of pupils; state schools educated 93pc. And this is where the real damage is done.

A Big Week for American Politics

28th June 2015

Read it.

First, it is now officially ludicrous to say that the Supreme Court just interprets the law.  The majority in the King v. Burwell decision essentially rewrote the law to give their decision some twisted justification.  Their opinion showed that the desire among six of the Justices for there to be an Obamacare is greater than their desire for our Constitution to work as designed.  As Justice Scalia said in his dissent, even though Congress specifically wrote a law that says subsidies are only for “exchanges established by the state,” “This Court…concludes that this limitation would prevent the rest of the Act from working as well as hoped.  So it rewrites the law.”   This type of judicial activism has been in the works for a while, but for it to have carried the day in such a high-profile, consequential case means no one knows where the limits are anymore. The unelected few assuming this much power is new and dangerous.

And that decision, in turn, gives twisters like John Roberts no leg to stand on when the leftist faction on the Court, with its pet Kennedy, turned around and did the same with the Constitution on ‘gay marriage’.

None of this bodes well for our democracy.  It’s not partisan wrangling that turns people off; it’s the complete dysfunction and hypocrisy combined with deceit and malfeasance that voters have seen becoming routine, like it is all part of a game and no one is held to account. And I do blame the Democrats more for perpetuating this culture of dishonesty and lack of transparency.

As do I, although Republicans are perhaps even more culpable because they know the truth and yet turn from it.

Greece Runs Out of Other People’s Money

28th June 2015

The Other McCain tells you the truth that you aren’t getting from Voices of the Crust.

In addition to Margaret Thatcher’s famous maxim about socialists eventually running out of other people’s money, there is also Stein’s Law. This was coined by Herb Stein, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers during Richard Nixon’s presidency: “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.” And the problem of the Eurozone’s weaker nations expecting bailouts from their rich neighbors obviously cannot go on forever. So what happens when it stops? We don’t know.

How the White House Abandoned American Hostages

28th June 2015

Read it.

In the last 10 months, the Islamic State has brutally executed four American hostages. As Americans died, their government was powerless to stop the slaying. For while European governments tirelessly toiled to secure the release of European hostages, President Barack Obama’s administration’s passive approach doomed their American cellmates.

The U.S. government’s principal channels with the four families largely consisted of mid-level officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. The FBI was useless. Its tasks were alternately to extract information and to comfort the family. It never shared intelligence. One European hostage, who was incarcerated with the Americans and subsequently released, told me he was shocked that the FBI seemed more interested in gathering evidence to prosecute the hostage-takers than it was in locating the Americans. Our lead agent misled me on several occasions, employing convoluted legalisms that would have impressed the greatest Talmudic scholars. His tactics so frustrated the Sotloffs that they finally asked him to address all queries to me. Though Steve is dead, our nightmare with the FBI continues. The bureau still refuses to give the Sotloffs the original letters he smuggled out of prison, claiming it is studying them for clues.

The FBI could have helped most when the Islamic State initiated contact with each of the families. Instead, it relied on hostage training manuals designed for dealing with psychopaths. That was the wrong approach. The hostage-takers did not have fractured egos that needed soothing. This was a pure money racket. Its ringleaders were not driven by ideology and displayed no psychological disorders.

The State Department was no better. When the mother of one of the hostages requested a senior point of contact at the White House, a State Department official rebuked her for going over her head. When Steve’s father asked that I attend a government meeting, a consular official claimed the room was too small. When Steve’s father offered to give up his seat, the official demurred. The decision to prohibit family representatives from government meetings was made at the administration’s highest levels. The White House knew that some representatives, like the one retained by the family of James Foley, one of the four slain hostages, had intelligence and political experience. Banning them allowed the administration to manage expectations and control the tempo of consultations. Indeed, some families were so confused on secure conference calls that they could not identify the government officials on the other end of the line.

You Are the Someone

28th June 2015

Read it.

Two news stories, each from a different side of the Atlantic, talk about the same thing but in different ways. The British Daily Mail has an article headed by a picture showing ISIS gunman Seifeddine Rezgui “with his AK47 – casually passing abandoned inflatables as a group of men keep their distance behind him”. Rezgui isn’t even holding his weapon at the ready.  He knew the men only 10 yards behind him wouldn’t sprint the distance to tackle him.

He is walking with the confidence of a wolf among sheep.

One commenter wondered what Someone was doing while this ‘tragedy’ occurred. “How come there was an alarm raised, carrying that machine gun, it was obvious to the onlookers in the picture. Somebody could have prevented another tragedy in the name of this perverse and ancient religion.”

What did they care? He was just there to kill kufr. They were just there to watch.

The West is filled with millions of people like Alex, all of them waiting for Someone. They are the product of a multi-decade campaign to deliberately empty people of their culture; to actually make them ashamed of it. They were purposely drained of God, country, family like chickens so they could be stuffed with the latest narrative of the progressive meme machine. The Gramscian idea was to produce a blank slate upon which the Marxist narrative could be written.

Too bad for the Gramscians that the Islamists are beating them to the empty sheets of paper.  And they are better at it too.  Maybe the old Bolsheviks could have given ISIS a run for its money, but today’s liberals have declined from their sires.

Is Animal Extinction Really the End of the World?

27th June 2015

Read it.

Hint: Uh, no.

‘Each year sees the disappearance of thousands of plant and animal species which our children will never see’, says Pope Francis in his gloomy encyclica lLaudato si. Can this possibly be true? Over the past 500 years, 1.3 per cent of birds and mammals are known to have become extinct — 200 species out of 15,000. There are far, far more species of invertebrates and plants in existence of course. The latest ‘predicted number’ of species is 8.7 million, of which 7.7 million are animals. (The remaining million are plants, fungi and microbes.) If you assume — which the great Matt Ridley assures me is unlikely — that an equally high percentage of these has become extinct, it averages out at about 350 a year. The loss of any species feels very sad — though, if Ridley is right, this has much more to do with (non-human) invasive species than climate change — but surely, at this rate, it is not the end of the world.

‘Religion of Peace’ Is Not a Harmless Platitude

27th June 2015

Read it.

The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault.

In France, Britain, Germany, America and nearly every other country in the world it remains government policy to say that any and all attacks carried out in the name of Mohammed have ‘nothing to do with Islam’. It was said by George W. Bush after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7 and Tony Abbott after the Sydney attack last month. It is what David Cameron said after two British extremists cut off the head of Drummer Lee Rigby in London, when ‘Jihadi John’ cut off the head of aid worker Alan Henning in the ‘Islamic State’ and when Islamic extremists attacked a Kenyan mall, separated the Muslims from the Christians and shot the latter in the head. It is what President François Hollande said after the massacre of journalists and Jews in Paris. And it is what David Cameron said yesterday after 38 people, mainly British, were murdered on a beach in Tunisia and a man was beheaded in France.

All these leaders are wrong. In private, they and their senior advisers often concede that they are telling a lie. The most sympathetic explanation is that they are telling a ‘noble lie’, provoked by a fear that we — the general public — are a lynch mob in waiting. ‘Noble’ or not, this lie is a mistake. First, because the general public do not rely on politicians for their information and can perfectly well read articles and books about Islam for themselves. Secondly, because the lie helps no one understand the threat we face. Thirdly, because it takes any heat off Muslims to deal with the bad traditions in their own religion. And fourthly, because unless mainstream politicians address these matters then one day perhaps the public will overtake their politicians to a truly alarming extent.

Thought for the Day

27th June 2015

Freeberg nails it yet again.

“Evolution” is still highly prized, as it was generations ago, what’s changed is the emphasis within that. From Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt, or even before then, up until the 1960’s sometime it was: Listen to the old people, because they are keepers of the ideas that are kept. They bear the fruits of eons of painful trial & error, good ideas that are formed by way of process-of-elimination, ideas that we know are right but cannot be formed any other way. The stuff that had to be learned. If you value what is good about evolution, look to the old people because they’re the ones who have it.

Now we still value what is good about evolution, but it is the young people who have it. The only role the old people can play is to try to act like the young people; that, and show us how this “survival of the fittest” thing works, and that’s during their final exit. Clean out the gene pool by eradicating themselves from it. The young people have something of a perceived monopoly on knowledge, theirs is the only knowledge that is worth anything at all.

We’ve lost trust. It used to be, the old people would trust the young people, to renew & carry along the value system that civilization should endure and remain strong. The young people would trust the old people, to intermix a bit of valuable personal experience with the equally valuable legacy-wisdom, to do something besides just repeat mindlessly what they’d been told back when they were the same age. So there would have been this sense of intergenerational trust, going in both directions, and it’s no longer there. We’ve also lost respect. This would start with the obvious realization of “Hooray, I’m all grown-up now, but I’m not the first human being who ever reached adulthood — lots of other ideas have been tried, some of actually worked, and other people have had problems before I had any, so let’s see what came of all that.” That, too, is gone. The loud-crowd, today, always seems to think history began at nine o’clock this morning, and the only purpose for any previously-existing idea is to be dismantled. So some hot new “Beverly Hills 90210? generation can show how cool it is, and of course they do that by carrying out this dismantling.

A civilization that values its older people will always have to value life. Even if it somehow doesn’t want to do this, it will have no other choice once it makes the decision to honor and respect old people, because we’re all headed in that direction. Conversely, a civilization that reserves all of its respect for the young, will have to place a premium value on death, because that’s the only way anybody is going to stay that way for very long. And of course if nothing is valuable besides whatever is cool, and nothing is cool besides what is new, that makes for an awful lot of wreckage and destruction that’s going to have to be done. And it’s going to have to be done by everyone who wants to matter, and all of the time.

Social Security Paid the Dead $47M, Audit Says

26th June 2015

Read it.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) paid individuals acting as representatives for disabled beneficiaries nearly $50 million even though they were dead.

An audit from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is just the latest example of the SSA’s inability to figure out who on their rolls is still alive.

The audit focused on “representative payees,” or a person who manages another’s finances due to mental or physical limitations. The OIG found that many payees acting on behalf of disability beneficiaries had died.

“SSA did not ensure new representative payees were selected when current payees died,” the OIG said. “Based on our sample results, we estimated 2,548 deceased payees received approximately $46.8 million in [Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance] OASDI benefits and [Supplemental Security Income] SSI payments.”

One firefighter was stabbed in the back and both were stabbed more than once. Police and other firefighters rushed to the scene and authorities arrested a suspect.

Ben Vernon, 32, was more seriously injured and had several stab wounds to his torso and punctured a lung, officials said.

Alex Walbertt, 37, also had multiple wounds to his torso but was expected to be released from the hospital sometime Thursday night.

Michelle Obama’s America: Salt ‘Black Markets’ Arise in School Cafeterias

25th June 2015

Read it.

Kids in a school district in Indiana have created a black market in salt packets, which they trade and sell to help mitigate the disgusting taste of the so-called healthy lunches mandated under federal guidelines.

These guidelines were championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. Like so many other clumsy government attempts to make people healthier by forbidding the consumption of things they like, the initiative is a costly failure.

‘Black market’ is a tendentious slur-word for situations in which the pricing and availability of goods are dictated by someone’s political agenda rather than free exchange. They are always a symptom of tyranny.

Marauding Migrants Brandish Knives at Truckers as 90 Illegals-an-Hour Pulled From Lorries

25th June 2015

Read it.

Crowds of young men were filmed using crowbars to break into lorries queuing to get into the Channel port.

The figures show migrants were stowing away in cars and trucks at a rate of 90 an hour.

But the true figure will be considerably higher, as many made it through borders and as far as Bedfordshire before being caught. It has raised fears many more could be on our shores without police knowledge.

Ten migrants were found in the back of a lorry parked in Folkstone, Kent, at about 4.30pm yesterday.

They were sent to Dover Immigration Centre where they are now under their care.

Seven suspected illegal immigrants were arrested at Toddington Services on the M1 in Bedfordshire. One told reporters he had come from Sudan wanting to go to a British university.

With nearly 400 more migrants reaching Calais every week to add to the 4,000 already camping out and waiting for the chance to slip into Britain, truckers leaders called on the French authorities to do more to protect their members.

Good luck with that.

Maybe they ought to build a fence. Look at how well that worked for the U.S. (Oh, wait….)

American Muslims, like their co-religionists in Europe, seem to prefer shariah over the law of the land. And a surprising number of them would support the use of violence to impose shariah. These facts run contrary to the “narrative” propagated by the media and our political leaders — according to them, such “radical” views are only held by a Tiny Minority of Extremists.

Calais Still in Crisis as French Say It’s Not Their Problem

24th June 2015

Read it.

Crowds of young men were filmed yesterday using crowbars to break into lorries queuing to get into the Channel port.

French police found 350 migrants hidden in cars and trucks in just four hours.

Tensions continued to flare yesterday, with two truckers clashing with migrants after one tried to break into a stationary lorry.

One migrant was seen to climb on to a lorry’s roof, while two others managed to break into the back of a slow-moving HGV with the help of a third migrant.

Another migrant declared: “I need a better life in England and I will do whatever it takes.”

The UKIP MEP for Wales Nathan Gill, whose Eurostar train was forced to return to Brussels on Tuesday afternoon, said: “These are economic migrants. They have travelled across Europe to get to Calais.

“It is the duty of the French Government and police to deal with this. But the only French police you see are directing traffic. They ignore the migrants walking up and down the road and just let them keep on trying to get through.

LAZY cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.

‘UNESCO-protected’? Just how were they ‘protected’? Doesn’t appear to have worked. Much like the rest of the UN kleptocracy.

Nigeria: The Islamic Empire Strikes Back

24th June 2015

Read it.

The new president (Muhammadu Buhari) has been in charge for 26 days and Boko Haram has responded with attacks killing about 200 people. Buhari’s biggest problem is not Boko Haram but the endemic corruption that led to Boko Haram and lawlessness all over the country. While the people of the northeast see Buhari (a Moslem) as a man who will do more to crush Boko Haram, most Nigerians see Buhari as the cure for corruption. When it comes to battling corruption Buhari is considered the underdog. Not because he does not have position and power, and the support of most Nigerians, but because the corrupt politicians, businessmen and gangsters have lots of money, gunmen and determination to keep their corrupt practices functioning. Based on past experience in Africa, defeating Boko Haram will be easier than making a serious dent in corruption.

The Kelo Debacle Turns 10

23rd June 2015

Read it.

Ten years ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued one of the most destructive and appalling decisions of the modern era. In Kelo v. City of New London, a 5-4 majority allowed a local government to bulldoze a working-class neighborhood so that private developers would have a blank slate on which to build a luxury hotel, a conference center, and various other upscale amenities. The city’s goal was to erase that existing community and replace it with a new commercial district that would (hopefully) fill the local coffers with more abundant tax dollars. According to the Supreme Court, this unsavory land grab qualified as a legitimate use of the city’s eminent domain powers because the city “has carefully formulated an economic development plan that it believes will provide appreciable benefits to the community.”

In the wake of the Court’s decision, the final holdouts in New London were given the boot and the bulldozers rolled in, leveling the neighborhood. But then nothing else happened. The redevelopment scheme fell apart and the project died. If you visit New London today, you’ll find that the razed neighborhood still stands empty, a depressing monument to the folly of “expert” government planning.

Britain Faces FREEZING Winters as Slump in Solar Activity Threatens ‘Little Ice Age’

23rd June 2015

Read it.

Climate experts warn the amount of light and warmth released by the sun is nosediving to levels “not seen for centuries”.

They fear a repeat of the so-called ‘Maunder Minimum’ which triggered Arctic winter whiteouts and led to the River Thames freezing 300 years ago.

The Met Office-led study warns although the effect will be offset by recent global warming, Britain faces years of unusually cold winters.

A spokesman said: “A return to low solar activity not seen for centuries could increase the chances of cold winters in Europe and eastern parts of the United States but wouldn’t halt global warming.

“Return of ‘grand solar minimum’ could affect European and eastern US winters.”

How about that Global Warming, huh?

Calais Chaos: Eurostar SUSPENDED as Striking Ferry Workers Storm Train Tunnel

23rd June 2015

Read it.

Trouble began when migrants camped out in the region tried to exploit wildcat strike action by ferry workers.

Lorry drivers were forced to slow due to queueing traffic and hundreds were attempting to clamber on board the UK-bound vehicles.

Ferry workers, striking over fears of job cuts, then began trespassing on the Eurotunnel tracks where they set fire to tyres, causing services to be cancelled for the rest of the day.

This is what happens when your government offers cushy benefits to anybody who shows up.

Trucker Chris Cary, 32, said: “When you are queueing you keep yourself locked in your cab and are constantly looking in your mirrors.

“They tried to break the locks and seals. I knew they had been at them because when I checked my vehicle I saw they were all twisted, bent and loose.”

He was supposed to get on a ferry at 3.45am this morning to drive £19,000 worth of energy drinks to his employers MJD’s warehouse in Dartford, Kent.

After hearing of the strike, he tried to get to the Eurotunnel train and drove through a road block of burning tyres erected by the strikers.

Some of the French workers threw rocks at his truck as he drove past.
