Let Poland be Poland!

21st May 2017

Read it.

The European Commission continues to threaten Poland for its refusal to accept its quota of “refugees” as required under the ukases issued by the mandarins of Brussels.*

Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said that accepting refugees would “certainly be worse” than penalties imposed by the European Union. And Prime Minister Beata Szydlo is standing firm.

It seems the Polish government has evaluated the effects of mass Muslim immigration, and decided that the terrorism, violence, rape, and criminality would be more damaging to Poland than anything Brussels could do to the country. How commonsensical — and rare! The lytic agents imported by George Soros’ organizations are evidently not yet strong enough to break down the societal structure of Polish culture and traditions.

South African Hunter Theunis Botha Crushed to Death by Elephant After It Is Fatally Shot in Zimbabwe

21st May 2017

Read it.

Theunis Botha, 51, from Johannesberg, was leading a hunt in Gwai, Zimbabwe, when they stumbled across a herd of elephants, which included pregnant cows.

Three elephants stampeded towards the hunters and Mr Botha opened fire with his rifle, prompting a fourth elephant to storm in from the side and lift him up with her trunk.

The Afrikaans news site Netwerk24 reported that another member of the group fired the fatal shot at the elephant and, as the animal collapsed dead, she fell on Mr Botha.

Usually karma isn’t that speedy.

Let that be a lesson to us all.

A Way to Make Water Potable Using Carbon Dioxide

21st May 2017

Read it.

Dr Stone’s alternative is to abandon the idea of filtration altogether. Instead, he plans to apply a phenomenon called diffusiophoresis to the problem. When CO2 and water meet at the liquid’s surface they react to make carbonic acid. This is a solution of hydrogen ions, which are positively charged, and bicarbonate ions, which are negative. The newborn ions then diffuse away from the surface and into the main body of the water. That creates a gradient of ionic concentration perpendicular to the surface. Dr Stone’s insight was that, because the gravity-resistant particles which need to be removed almost always have either positive or negative static-electric charges on their surfaces, their interaction with an ion gradient of this sort, which is itself composed of charged particles, could be used to move them around.

Fresh clean water, here we come.

Explaining Academia: Milieu Control, Part I

21st May 2017

Severian sets it out in black & white.

Milieu control is a basic mind-control tactic. Severely restrict the environment, and you limit the mental world of its inhabitants. Robert Jay Lifton’s Mind Control and the Psychology of Totalism is still the best primer on how this is done. He identifies eight factors for successful “brainwashing.” Lifton’s subjects were American POWs from the Korean War and former Chinese labor camp inmates, but stop me if this sounds familiar.

The new Clerisy has many characteristics resembling those of the First Estate of the French ancien regime prior to the French Revolution. Full of ill-paid people whose greatest pride is in their supposed intellectual prowess and conviction of moral superiority, they take comfort in feeling that they have given up the pomps and comforts of the secular world in order to Fight The Good Fight against the Forces of Evil and Darkness. Their comparative hand-to-mouth existence compared to the affluent of the Crust induces feelings of resentment that they express by dealing dirt to the Usual Suspects on the right By Any Means Possible. The college students that are shouting down people who don’t agree with them and walk out of graduation exercises rather than listen to thoughts that are Politically Incorrect are their recruiting ground.

Nine People Shot in Philly While Reportedly Dancing on Facebook Live

21st May 2017

Read it.

Police say roughly 30 people were partying on a sidewalk while live streaming on Facebook’s platform when an unknown gunman (or gunmen) opened fire on the crowd, reports the Associated Press. As many as 27 shots were fired in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood, a northern part of the city where fatal shootings occur relatively often.

From Wikipedia: “As of 2010, Strawberry Mansion was 94.3% black or African American, 2.3% white or European American, 1.6% Hispanic, 0.8% Asian, and 1% all other.”

Black Lives Matter — except to black people.

Humans May Have Accidentally Created a Radiation Shield Around Earth

21st May 2017

Read it.

NASA spends a lot of time researching the Earth and its surrounding space environment. One particular feature of interest are the Van Allen belts, so much so that NASA built special probes to study them! They’ve now discovered a protective bubble they believe has been generated by human transmissions in the VLF range.

VLF transmissions cover the 3-30 kHz range, and thus bandwidth is highly limited. VLF hardware is primarily used to communicate with submarines, often to remind them that, yes, everything is still fine and there’s no need to launch the nukes yet.  It’s also used for navigation and broadcasting time signals.

It seems that this human transmission has created a barrier of sorts in the atmosphere that protects it against radiation from space. Interestingly, the outward edge of this “VLF Bubble” seems to correspond very closely with the innermost edge of the Van Allen belts caused by Earth’s magnetic field. What’s more, the inner limit of the Van Allan belts now appears to be much farther away from the Earth’s surface than it was in the 1960s, which suggests that man-made VLF transmissions could be responsible for pushing the boundary outwards.

Cue hysteria from the Global Warming crowd.

Financialization

21st May 2017

ZMan brings the future.

One of the things that ails us in the modern age is we have yet to adjust our thinking to the modern economy. The great political-economic thinkers lived in a time when money was either gold, backed by gold or a fiat currency. The result is our political and economic debates are based in the logic of a world that no longer exists. The modern global economy is not based on fiat money or hard money. It is based on credit money, which has a unique set of characteristics.

For instance, the US government is no longer able to print up greenbacks and sprinkle them on the economy. Instead, when they expand the money supply, they expand lending, both domestic and global. It’s not just any sort of lending either. The central bank can buy up long term notes in order to drive down long term lending rates, thus expanding lending for capital goods. Alternatively, they can buy up short term debt and increase the amount retail lending. The Federal Reserve holds close to 2 trillion in mortgages, for example.

Democrats Bring the H8: Students Shut Down Northwestern Class to Protest ICE Representative’s Visit

21st May 2017

Read it.

Student protesters shut down a sociology class at Northwestern University on Tuesday, after a professor invited an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) public relations officer to be a guest speaker.

The protesters, chanting and waving banners, argued that the officer’s presence on campus represented a threat to undocumented students. But the professor — who canceled the class during the protest because she was concerned for the speaker’s safety — said she had been hoping to start a dialogue.

“The goal was to bring in somebody who was familiar with how that agency is structured,” Beth Redbird, an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology, told TIME.

They aren’t interested in knowing, they’re interested in winning — don’t confuse them with facts, just bow your head and obey.

Thought for the Day: The Buttinsky Effect

21st May 2017

Read it.

Far too many people operate according to a screwy and uncivilized code of ethics.  Butting in to strangers’ private affairs is applauded as altruistic if done through the agency of the state, while resisting and protesting against such officiousness is portrayed in the media and in the classrooms as evidence of greed or of cruelty or of ignorance (or of some combination of the three).

Making matters much worse are the all-too-typical modern economists.  They thrill to the not-very-challenging challenge of pointing out the many ways that real-world markets ‘deviate’ from textbook models – and in particular of all the many situations in which flesh-and-blood individuals acting in markets are less than fully informed.  These economists then leap, stuffed with confidence but devoid of anything at stake, to the conclusion that they – and the state officials who they imagine are eager to act on their scientific advice – somehow know, or can make known, all that the flesh-and-blood people are presumed not to know about the details of each of these individual’s specific situations.

What’s At Stake in the Left’s Effort to Redefine ‘Sex’ in Pennsylvania Law

20th May 2017

Read it.

In a quietly released statement issued late on a Friday afternoon, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, an agency of the state government, announced a proposal to effectively redefine the word “sex” in the state’s discrimination law to also include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” or “SOGI” for short.

This proposal wouldn’t change the law—only the commission’s “guidance” on the matter. But this new “guidance” would mean the law would be enforced as if it had changed.

This guidance comes on the heels of repeated failures to accomplish the same outcome through the legitimate way of changing laws—through the legislative process and with the consent of the governed.

Proglodytes really aren’t all that into the whole democracy thing. After all, they know better than the rubes in flyover country.

The Short Attention Span President

20th May 2017

Scott Adams teaches the world.

Part of the fun of watching the press cover President Trump is that they don’t have a leadership filter. Most writers and TV news people have never been leaders in super-complicated industries. President Trump has. And let me tell you a few necessary skills a leader in that situation needs to possess:

1. No patience with long explanations. If an advisor can’t put the USEFUL information in summary form, ignore and move to the next advisor.

2. Ability to know which variables are sufficient to make the decision.

A president needs those two qualities. Otherwise, the job would overwhelm. if you are one of the advisors who doesn’t get enough attention from the president – because your explanations of things are overly wordy or useless – what message do you leak to the press?

How Academia Resembles a Drug Gang

And not in a good way.

Academic systems rely on the existence of a supply of “outsiders” ready to forgo wages and employment security in exchange for the prospect of uncertain security, prestige, freedom and reasonably high salaries that tenured positions entail. Drawing on data from the US, Germany and the UK, Alexandre Afonso looks at how the academic job market is structured in many respects like a drug gang, with an expanding mass of outsiders and a shrinking core of insiders.

Much like the nomenklatura of the old Soviet Union, and I suspect the resemblance is more than coincidental.

Why the Left Refuses to Talk About Venezuela

19th May 2017

Read it.

During the 2016 presidential election, Bernie Sanders refused to answer questions about Venezuela during an interview with Univision. He claimed to not want to talk about it because he’s “focused on my campaign.” Many suggested a more plausible reason: Venezuela’s present economy is an example of what happens when a state implements Bernie Sanders-style social democracy.

Similarly, Pope Francis — who has taken the time to denounce pro-market ideologies for allegedly driving millions into poverty — seems uninterested in talking about the untrammeled impoverishment of Venezuela in recent years.

It doesn’t fit with the Narrative and therefore doesn’t exist.

Friday Thoughts

19th May 2017

Lion of the Blogosphere shares.

Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia presents good possibilities for positive press. No doubt it causes cognitive dissonance for Democrats that the Arab countries like Saudi Arabia are very happy that Trump is President, because they hated Obama. They don’t care about Trump’s “Muslim ban,” because they don’t let Jews and Christians immigrate to their countries, why do they care if the United States does the same to their people, as long as they can all get along diplomatically? The Middle East simply does not understand the do-gooder liberal ethic at all. They think they’re a bunch of chumps. They love to take advantage of those chumps, but they have no respect for them.

I try to be cynical but it’s impossible to keep up.

How to Run a Drug Cartel

19th May 2017

Read it.

In an illicit industry, recruiting low-skilled workers is challenging because the jobs require discipline and a high level of trust. Prisons in Latin America have made drug traffickers’ lives easier, since these have turned into virtual business schools, where the most experienced people in the business are put in touch with those interested in illegal activities. This is also where gangs gain strength, among other ways by requiring their members to get conspicuous tattoos to reduce the dangerous possibility of them leaving the organization.

That’s why prisons ought to be arranged to keep prisoners in isolation from each other, bleeding hearts to the contrary notwithstanding. ‘But but but … that would be cruel!’ Yeah, that’s why they call it ‘punishment’. Feel free to consult a dictionary.

There also ought to be a program to arrest on sight people with gang tattoos. ‘But but but … that’s profiling!’ Yup. The reason profiling works is because it’s scientific — people with gang tattoos are telling you that they’re in gangs. The least we can do is take them at their word.

These problems have solutions.

The tires are also made from an absorbent rubber that naturally stiffens in dry conditions and softens up in the wet to optimize grip.

Why America Abandoned Nuclear Power (And What We Can Learn From South Korea)

18th May 2017

Read it.

So what’s the catch? Cost is a big one. More than safety or waste issues, cost is nuclear’s Achilles’ heel. Modern-day reactors have become jarringly expensive to build, going for $5 billion to $10 billion a pop. Worse, the price tag seems to be rising in many places. Back in the 1960s, new reactors in the US were one of the cheaper energy sources around. Two decades later, after a series of missteps, those costs had increased sixfold — a big reason we stopped building plants.

What Brad Plumer (a Voice of the Crust) will never mention, nor even allow himself to think, is that these cost are from litigation by eco-Nazis who see the word ‘nuclear’ and immediately hyperventilate and multiple oppressive layers of government regulation (largely in response to eco-Nazi political pressure).

Additional woes followed. In its 1971 Calvert Cliffs decision, the DC Circuit Court ordered nuclear regulators to change their rules to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act. That opened the door for citizen lawsuits to intervene in the licensing and construction process, sometimes causing further slowdowns.

Oh, ya think?

Then nuclear suffered a mortal blow after the much-publicized (but nonfatal) meltdown at Three Mile Island in 1979. Every reactor still under construction at the time — 51 in total — suddenly faced major regulatory delays, changes in safety procedures, and new back-fit requirements. Construction times doubled, stretching out past 10 years. Costs went through the roof, past $7,000/kW for some reactors:

In other words, government regulations and bureaucratic delays.

Jury Clears Tulsa Cop In Fatal Shooting, Protests Erupt

18th May 2017

Read it.

A jury acquitted a white Tulsa police officer of manslaughter charges Wednesday night in her 2016 fatal shooting of a black man.

The twelve jurors, nine white people and three black people, declared that Officer Betty Shelby was not guilty of first degree manslaughter charges in shooting Terence Crutcher, reports CNN.

I guess the three black people were actually white people in a Clever Plastic Disguise. Or maybe they were doing a reverse Rachel Dolezal and ‘identifying’ as white. Because we all know that when a black guy is shot he Has To Be an innocent victim of pervasive white privilege, so we Must Look Elsewhere for the Real Story.

Some protesters also gathered outside Shelby’s hotel, chanting “Bring her out!” “Bring her out!”

Again, these must be white people disguised as black people, since Everybody Knows that Only White People Form Lynch Mobs.

Alt-Left Insanity: Sports Site Wonders Which NBA Playoff Team Is Most Left-Wing

18th May 2017

Read it.

I’ve been getting a lot of “notoriety” for commenting about the extreme left and how it’s seized control from average, everyday nutty libs. Typically, this arrives in the form of hate mail.

Most times when you mock the left, paid liberal trolls attack you on Twitter. If your barbs hit close to home, then the number of places the alt-left attacks you increases. My recent record is five. My original piece on the alt-left for Foxnews.com generated hate messages in: email, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I even got angry phone calls.

My latest Fox piece detailed the scarily violent trend among liberals who now have lost their ever-loving minds. I explained how, “the liberal cold war against the right has escalated from demonization to intimidation, harassment and violence — with Trump administration officials and members of Congress as prime targets.”

Yet again, Democrats bring the hate. Yet Trump is the New Hitler.

It’s a region that in many ways is the polar opposite of the San Francisco and San Jose metropolitan areas, which have dominated our ranking for the last few years. (They still place second and eighth this year, respectively, among the largest 70 metropolitan areas, though San Jose is down sharply from second place last year.)

Unlike the tech-driven Bay Area, Dallas’ economy has multiple points of strength, including aerospace and defense, insurance, financial services, life sciences, data processing and transportation. Employment in the metro area has expanded 20.3% over the past five years and 4.2% last year, with robust job creation in professional and business services, as well as in a host of lower-paid sectors like retail, wholesale trade and hospitality.

According to Southern Methodist University’s Klaus Desmet and Collin Clark, Dallas’s success stems in part from the fact that it isn’t looking to appeal to the elite “creative class,” but to middle-class workers and the companies and executives who employ them. Dallas attracts both foreign and domestic migrants, particularly from places like California, where housing is, on an income-adjusted basis, often three times as expensive. This has had much to do with the relocation to the area of such companies as Jacobs Engineering, Toyota, Liberty Mutual and State Farm.

Suck on it, Left Coast.

Stop Fiddling With Your Goddamn Phone

17th May 2017

Joe Bob Briggs lays down the law.

And why is it called a smartphone? It’s not smart, it’s a computer. It’s dumb. It requires a smart person to operate it. It’s probably called a smartphone to disguise the fact that it’s likely to be operated by a dummy, thereby making it more marketable to consumers in need of remedial IQ points.

When Steve Jobs arrived at the gates of heaven, Gabriel was not there to greet him, there were no trumpets, and the gates remained closed all day, because the archangels were fiddling with their phones.

New York’s Single-Payer Health Care Plan Would Be More Expensive Than New York’s Entire State Government

17th May 2017

And you know that New York State doesn’t do government on the cheap. Lot of pigs at that trough.

The single-payer health care plan that cleared the lower chamber of New York’s state legislature on Tuesday would require massive tax increases to double—or possibly even quadruple—the state’s current annual revenue levels.

The state Assembly voted 87-38 on Tuesday night to pass the New York Health Plan, which would abolish private insurance plans in the state and provide all New Yorkers (except those enrolled in Medicaid and Medicare) with health insurance through the state government. The same proposal cleared the state Assembly in 2015 and 2016, but never received a vote from the state Senate.
