The only issue that matters

Immigration unseats a once-popular mayor:
Rutland Mayor Chris Louras, who endured months of withering criticism for his plan to bring Syrian refugees to the city, lost his reelection bid on Tuesday. In unofficial voting results, David Allaire, a city alderman and leading critic of the resettlement, trounced Louras, a 10-year mayoral incumbent, by a 776-vote margin, according to results cited by the Rutland Herald and WCAX-TV.

"I'm simply wishing him luck and I'm moving on," Louras told Seven Days Tuesday night. He declined further comment, saying he would "not hazard a guess" as to what the election results say about Rutland's support for refugees.

Allaire did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

While Louras campaigned on a series of issues, and touted a reduction in many categories of crime, along with an improved downtown business district, the refugee debate has dominated political life in Rutland for the past year.

Louras had beaten Allaire in two previous mayoral elections. town-meeting-day.png

A Rutland native, Louras reached out to refugee resettlement officials in late 2015 and hatched a proposal to bring 100 refugees from Syria and Iraq to the city, which has been losing population for decades. The mayor pitched the plan, without consulting the Board of Aldermen, as a humanitarian imperative and economic development initiative.
What is remarkable is how many politicians are so uncharacteristically willing to risk their careers for such a wildly unpopular cause. Is it because they are drinking the ideological (((Kool-Aid))) or are they being somehow incentivized to further the invasion of America?

The USA desperately needs negative immigration to reduce the societal stresses leading to balkanization, secession, and civil war. There is ZERO benefit to immigration at this point in time. None whatsoever. It does not "benefit the economy". Every single pro-immigrant program, from student visas and H1B visas to anchor babies and family laws, needs to be shut down.

It is time for the God-Emperor to grasp the nettle, and unleash the full power of the executive branch on the reaction. The time for negotiations, sweet reason, and half-measures is past.

Leaders in Africa will screw their own people, even own tribe, fairly consistently as long as they still get invited to parties in Europe. (It's the South Africa Effect.) So it's hard to say how much they actually believe in the topic. People will easily rationalize their own desires for inclusion, so it becomes a Chicken vs Egg discussion for origination.

"Allaire always insisted he is not anti-refugee, but he led the charge to investigate whether Louras broke any laws in his handling of the proposal."

Until public figures begin openly saying "I AM anti-refugee", they're playing a losing game with cheaters. Note how the SJW incumbent mayor simply bypassed the law to flood the town with refugees.

Trump is facing the same rigged game with the renewed - and unlawful- judicial opposition to his new watered-down travel ban, now from multiple states simultaneously.

Unless Trump is setting the traitors up to give him an excuse for a TOTAL immigration ban on round three, or solidifying targets for executive branch punishment, it's a bad course.

The Trump administration needs to quit playing the 'muh-Constitutional legal procedure' game real soon. The Left isn't even pretending to follow the rules anymore.

This is where our side is falling down and falling down hard. The left has set the rules by their behavior and rules they chose were essentially no rules.

5 years ago I was dumbfounded when a typical cuck said they hoped the Republicans would undo the Senate rules change Reid pushed through to defang the filibuster in most instances when they got power back. "Tradition" and "balance of power" and "rights of the minority" were the only reasons they could offer me when I asked why you would handcuff yourself while your opponent does whatever they please.

McConnell, Ryan, McCarthy, McCain, Graham, Murkowski, Portman, Collins, Snow, Cornyn all need to be primaried when they next come up for election. They don't understand that they are at war and their opponent will abide by no rules. All of the congressional rules that provide any power to the minorities in the congressional bodies need to be changed ASAP because the Democrats will not hesitate to do so when they gain power next.

Religion informs morality. Christianity has a hard edge based on demands for righteousness and justice. Why take the hard road when it's so much easier to display your moral virtue as compassion for "those poor people" who are only trying "to escape war and poverty." So much for morality in an irreligious age.

My money says the lower ranks of politicians are comprised mainly of believers, while the upper ranks are comprised mainly of conspirators.

So, effectively the lower ranks would be both drinking the Kool-Aid and receiving incentives to take such a risky stand. The incentives come in the form of possibly playing with the bigger boys if they show their bonafides. Meanwhile, the upper ranks move solely by personal gain and are generally monsters with no empathy for anyone left.

Thinking that President Trump can stop this is unrealistic. I point to the Spanish Civil War where the traditionalists won the bloody civil war but at the death of Generalissmo Franco, Spain went far left; it now has a collapsing birthrate and is being taken over. What's the lesson? All that blood and killing, and Spain still turned Leftist. What's the point?

I attended several diversity sessions at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI. I attempted to speak against the diversity agenda. At one point, I was told "You can't speak". The universities and colleges are Marxist training camps. What is President Trump going to do there? That's the problem. Even the local Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, MI, has a Diversity Office sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation. Second, I've attended several elementary school boards in Battle Creek, to only find out that their mission statements include "educating for the global community". Marxist hold on our educational institutions is thorough and complete.

That was the case in Spain. Once the Enlightenment taught "Separation of Church and State", the educational facilities were taken over by Freethinkers and then these were taken over by Marxists.

The program of Diversity at Western Michigan University, was expressly organized and done to counter Trump's immigration plan. The president of WMU, John M. Dunn, even said this was the purpose of the many sessions to organize effective resistance to Trump. I had no power to protest. They didn't allow any. And in one part when I began to flip them off during their monologues, one speaker made fun of me. I was the only one there in opposition. Bloviating on a blog is fine with the troops, but the real work---is at the educational institutions.

That's stupid, Wheeler. The moment you stop fighting, the enemy who keeps trying to kill you will win.

That does not mean you should not fight.

As for trying to change the system from within... that's naive for an individual to attempt. Only by finding likeminded individuals to fight in it with you can you accomplish much of anything. Otherwise the most effective method is to just let it kill itself, which is will do because it's so bloody converged, and to swoop in with your alternative platform that you built and are in control of.

Part of the problem is that "we" (the collective "we") seem to fundamentally misunderstand leftist philosophy and politics. In small homogeneous, high trust populations variants of socialism and perhaps even arguably marxism can be successful and produce a positive net outcome for that population (i.e. Sweden). However as soon as you move beyond those constraints leftist ideals generate an insidious and toxic decay of a society and act in an almost viral manner. The young are inherently optimist and the story book version of leftist politics sounds like a wonderland, a utopia. Anyone who would stand against the pursuit of such a utopia must be a bad person, a racists, a hitler etc. It is this sales pitch which is so effectively used against the younger generations to indoctrinate them and it is incredibly insidious as it start with baby steps and then grows like cancer.

If / when the alt-right can ever gain control of education, leftist politics and philosophy must be treated as a disease, as a cancer and the young inoculated against it. Educate them on the full horrors of what the leftist policies actually produce such as the greatest mass killings in the last 100 years. A sociopolitical philosophy needs to be developed that denies leftist philosophy and politics even the slightest legitimacy or foothold in society. Until that is done this cycle will continue to repeat.

Given that the modern church is corrupt and at virtually all levels and can provide no functional structure for supporting a righteous society, perhaps it is time to start rebuild a modern Knights Templar

I suggest we offer each muslim rapefugee FAMILY a choice, forcible deportation or $500,000 and self deport to Syria. Then offer Syria $500,000 for each rapefugee that they accept. There have been about 1 million muslims imported in the last 10 years. For 1 billion we have removed the issue one way or another. I’m just guessing here but I would guess that that 1 billion payout is cheaper than the cost of the societal costs, the welfare, etc of them staying in the US for even 10 years. That a government expenditure I can get behind, the good old carrot & stick approach. Of course the money is not transferred until the rapefugee arrives in Syria and they are banned from re-entry to the US.

I can daydream right?

I wonder the same thing about motives. I know people, including conservatives, whose misplaced altruism makes them soft on taking refugees. But they wouldn't sacrifice their careers over it, especially after the opposition had pointed out the negative consequences. There's no way that didn't happen over months of a campaign. I'd say a man like this almost has to be getting paid/blackmailed into it, but when he loses the election, he's no longer of any use to the paymasters, so it seems like he'd lose both paychecks.

1. The USA is the top dog, while Spain was the dead husk of an old empire. If they stop fighting after they win, the whole world can come down on them. If we win, we are the world! We're the controlling heights that everyone else aspires to hold, so if the USA goes nationalist, much of Europe will follow.

Another thought,

We should realize that the left has already engaged in active ethnic cleaning and has been doing so for 30+ years. The social programs of the left from feminism to mass illegal immigration is functionally an advanced form of stealth ethnic cleansing. You have to give them credit for appearing to have learned from the last few attempts at a marixsts utopia. They still use violence as well, but now it is just cloaked as the poor down trodden minorities acting out against their white oppressors. In the last year they seem to be getting bolder with BLM and antifa.
The Caucasian populations of the west have been strategically cornered due to failing to recognize this stealth ethnic cleansing, and any reversal of the foreign legions will not be a peaceful process, they will not go willingly and the leftist elements will not give up on their utopia do easily.

Vermont is a high trust state. Due in large measure to its homogenous makeup. Its homogenous because outside of the “urban” cities like Rutland, Burlington, Brattleboro, Bennington & WRJ...its very rural. This makes it a rather expensive place to live and also one where you absolutely must be self-sufficient and friendly with your neighbors in order to survive. When major catastrophes hit, like Irene, politics generally go by the wayside and everyone just pitches in to get things done.
All that said, this cohesiveness based upon trust is cherished enough that when a politician acts in a way that violates this - he goes down in a ball of flames. That is exactly what Louras did and the result was predictable.
Couldn’t have happened to a better guy ( sarcasm off). His approach to governing would really be better suited for a place like Albany. Fortunately for him the NY border is pretty close...making moving costs negligible.

Good luck with that.. its already been attempted and didn’t work. Although in the case of McConnell , Matt Bevin’s popularity as governor might make give him a chance - should he decide a rematch is in order.

Regarding Collins - there is absolutely no one in the state , currently, who could challenge her and win. Your average Mainer couldn’t give two shits what happens in Washington..but they care greatly what happens within the borders of their state. Its why you have a firebrand like Lepage as governor but a milquetoast moderate like Collins as Senator. She would never win as governor but the residents will gladly elect to ship off her to that far away place in DC.

You can answer the question of economic benefit by looking at Indian H1B visa holders. Much of their paycheck gets sent back to India. Those dollars are not being spent in America. Nor will they likely ever be.

Then you look at the American that would otherwise have that job, his dollars would be spent in America to support his American family.

Was it even a positive net outcome for Sweden, or was it simply a slowburn of the middle class being slaughtered to enrich the wealthy and give handouts to the poor?

It appears to me that instead of Marxism being a success in Sweden, they started spending their posterity (the possibility of ever becoming middle class) and enjoyed riches due to that instead of any Marxist concept.

I think the simple matter is that it is only very, very recently -- say, 2012-2016 -- when large numbers of people started thinking of progtards as evil threats to civilization rather than overly nice, misguided folks that you can reason with.

In Spain's case (as well as other ex-Catholic societies), remember that pre-Vatican II and post-Vatican II Catholicism are two completely different religions. The former is the genuine two-millennia-old article, whereas the latter is a cucky SJW-run go-along-to-get-along nonreligion that tries to accomodate itself to everyone and ends up standing for nothing. Which of the two would have been able to fight Marxism, and which has been infected with Marxist civilizational AIDS? Rhetorical.

Blue,

I could be wrong but I think it’s an interesting debate. Marxism and Democracy are stable only under temporary certain conditions and can be “successful” as defined by that population in those narrow conditions. Neither is robust and both are corrosive to societies that are not isolated and homogeneous.

Indeed the long game of gaining control / influence over education is one of if not the critical overarching objective.


I disagree, look at modern guerrilla warfare manuals and real world experience. It doesn’t take the larger mass to win, it takes strategic control of the public narrative. It is also never a peaceful process. A reformed “knights Templar” of sorts that had a political and philosophical “mission” could be highly effective. You could build that by following 2 or 3 of the current US SOG operations manuals that are publicly available. The hardest part is probably securing the financial resources to support the effort.

That's a thing that you might have overlooked though: MPAI, even people who agree with you. And people read less now than they ever have.

An academic paper isn't going to get traction with anyone but the academically-minded, and the vast majority of them are indoctrinated so heavily it's going to get rejected out of hand.

On the other hand, making videos short enough for a quick watch is going to get far, far more eyeballs on it than a very good and rigorous paper ever would.

It's not unsympathetic and weak WASPs at fault, it's simply weak human nature in general.

I know SJW “true believers” with alphabets after their names who are incredible scientific minds and yet their true belief is so deep that no quantity of facts or personal observation will ever change that. The proverbial or literal fist to the face from reality will also not change their belief, they have invested their entire definition of who they are in their beliefs and to change their beliefs would be to shatter their own concept of the world.

I'm not sure why everyone is focused on bullets? We live in a world of container ships and bulldozers. We've seen every hand to hand battle of France vs migrants, except when they cleared out the Calais camp with bulldozers. Or, for that matter, I've only seen one Israeli bulldozer vs Palestinian village, and decades of rock-throwing kids vs fully kitted soldiers. The effective action- no stasis- was the bulldozer.

I don't know that reaction comes from the top, since, well, clean, well-educated, college manners seem universal and charming. College professors are not bearing the brunt of the immigration costs. Poor little kids in minority-majority neighborhoods are bearing the cost. it literally does not seem to matter to even their own countrymen, the suffering of young girls at the hands of rapists, or young boys at the hands and feet of gangs, even when it is reported in the news, or recorded on youtube and published by the perpetrators.
So, my personal bet, is that it's something more like Solidarity- a blue-collar port reaction by a union worker- a container ship of refugees dumped in the middle of the ocean. And then repeated.

I could be wrong but I think it’s an interesting debate. Marxism and Democracy are stable only under temporary certain conditions and can be “successful” as defined by that population in those narrow conditions. Neither is robust and both are corrosive to societies that are not isolated and homogeneous.


It's more correct to say that it's not that democracy and marxism is only corrosive in those situations, but rather societies that are heterogeneous are inherently unstable. They will eventually self-destruct no matter the ruling structure laid on top of them.

You could have a hypothetically stable heterogeneous society of Japanese and Caucasians as they are both high trust cultures, assuming they are an isolated society. Heterogeneous high trust groups can cooperate within a society where as low trust cultures will always aggressively compete for dominance in a destructive manner.

I would propose a slight change to your statement:

I suspect stating the vote total without giving the magnitude of the loss is a way of clouding just how big the loss was.

“Five-term incumbent Mayor Chris Louras of Rutland, Vermont was defeated this Town Meeting Day. He lost to Alderman Dave Allaire by a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent. Allaire swept all four wards,”

The entire Banana Empire deep state and its minions in numerous federal agencies incentivize with trips to cut-rate versions of Epstein's 'It's a Small World' Island plus other tax monies paid to the rapefugee racketeering interests. All funding for rapefugee-racketeering has increased steadily since the Gay Old Pedobears took over congress in 2011.

I didn't mention trust because trust has nothing to do with it.

It'd only be stable when times are good, which is the same no matter if they're Japanese and 'Caucasians' or if they're Germans living in a relatively English America.

Even heterogeneous groups with low trust can be peaceful when times are good. The key is what happens when times aren't good.

It's not a matter of low or high trust, it's a matter of identity groups. It's what you are and what you believe.

Are the IRA a symptom of a stable heterogeneous society? Are the Irish a low trust culture?

The Japanese and (mostly) Caucasians are already living right next to each other near the military bases in US, and that's only stable for now because its been slowly eroding Japan's goodwill. There are a number of cases of rape of locals by military men, and the locals aren't the happiest. Both high trust, but it's still unsustainable in the long run simply because to the Japanese, they are "us" and the US military are "them".

Low trust and heterogeneous low trust societies have an implicit upper limit to the degree that the society can advance unless there is an accessible high trust society that can be used to extract societal advances from in a parasitic manner

@WLW:

You make a good point. There is no reforming of the educational institutions. They are enemy territory - controlled down to the local level by SJWs. The only hope is to completely defund them and force the SJWs who believe in public edumacayshun to pay their own damned expenses. Dobson advised Christian parents to remove their children from public schools 25 years ago. How many bothered to do so? Keep in mind that public schuls at the local level were already so converged a quarter century ago that Dobson, who would never be considered alt-right, could see that everything taught there was in conflict with even his own rather thin-gruel Christianity. After his retirement, his own organization, demonstrated its own devotion to the Judeo-Christ with Housenigga Hussein's ascension and Dobson's replace remarking that "Amurika needs more families like Obama's". So a "Christian" is stating that the country needs more families of communist black-supremacists? Trump's notion of educational vouchers is just given the enemy the means to completely converge the few remaining private and parochial schools with tax dollars. I somehow doubt we'll see madrassas in Kalamazoo teaching about the Judeo-Christ, but we can be guaranteed that all "Christian" schools will be urged to teach about the high civilization achievements of Musloid kingdoms.

As noted by old Koba the dread: Education is a weapon whose results depend upon who holds it and at whom it is aimed.

Most of the Gay Old Pedobear Incitatuses in your roster never face any serious opposition from the D-jerseys, nor will they until their state is flooded with enough foreign bloodsuckers to ensure the election of a communist like Housenigga Hussein. As I recall, about 10 years ago Miss Lindsay's D-jersey opponent was the actual conservative and the morons in that state still voted for him. I'm beginning to agree with the poster above that destroying the deep-state is actually as important as stopping the invasion for the simple reason that they will prevent Trump from doing anything about the invasion. Another facet noted by one of our readers the other day is that most folks on our side have to actually work for a living, while the other side has access to what amounts to limitless funding - being a black-bloc thug is actually a full-time well-paid job.

What degree of overlap or interactions can occur in good times between different identity groups with becoming corrosive?

It all depends.

On some level it's always "corrosive", because life is volatile and times won't always remain good. What's tolerable one year can become completely intolerable the next, and it's not always the fault of said interactions or overlaps that cause said good times to become bad. Think of it as entropy in a way.

On another level, the moment you have separate races or religions under one leadership, the corrosive factor climbs, and climbs even more, the more alien the race or religion is from the other.

And take careful note, when I say religion I'm referring to any and all fundamental worldviews that eventually require faith, which includes the worship of Science!™ as an infallible beacon of truth that can't be questioned. That idolatry of science basically created another religion which was very antithetical to the religions in America at the time, and acted as a very corrosive agent.

Remember, diversity + proximity = war.

People take high risk activity in low trust environments all the time. Just trying to order cheap goods in China is a freaking high risk activity since you'll get scalped.

And really, it's not trust that's the major lynchpin between society and advancing, but general IQ and geography. Why is Dubai and China so much better off than Liberia? It's certainly not high trust.

And if a high trust environment truly allowed a given society to advance further than a low trust one due to sharing of ideas, then why did the high trust societies think copyright is so important and China just flaunts it all the time? There's arguably far more ideas, industry secrets and patented info spreading in China, illegally and belonging to other countries mind you, than there are in the US. Is it then actually true that high trust environments share ideas more than low trust?

There's a rather easy way to deal with the problem w/ the President's powers:

(1) Recognize the real number of illegal immigrants, which a former Mexican Ambassador to the US said was 30 million, 10% of the 300 million population of the US, is an invasion.
(2) Recognize that Article 4, Section 4, requires the federal government to protect the several states from invasion.
(3) Recognize the so called "sanctuary cities" are giving aid and comfort to the enemy of the several states and issue warrants and rewards for their arrest/capture for Treason.
(4) Deploy the Army along the border to prevent more violations -- the US/Mexico border (≈2000 mi) can be covered with 200 M-109 howetzerss.
(5) Authorize the Marines to "quarantine"/besiege sanctuary-cities: cut off their power, water, and air travel until they surrender their mayor and city council [or equivalent] for trial; also, inspect anybody exiting the city to ensure they are Citizens, if they are not, capture them and treat them as enemy spies.
(6) When the Judiciary tries to invalidate these exercises of military power, apprehend them and charge them with Treason.
(7) When the Congress tries to impeach, arrest them for Treason. [The only valid way for congress to do anything would be to end the war... but the President is thehighest diplomat. (Art 2, Sec 2 & 3)]

It's part of their rhetoric Geir. Recall that they were splitting up families in central America to put their tween girls on trains to be raped during the trip through Mexico so that the family could be "reunited" by bringing the parents here. Split the family (and likely destroy the girl) to reunite the family. Sick bastards they are.

In the spirit of my Catholic upbringing, which despite being an agnostic I still find useful as moral compass, I offer the following advice to all y'all ranting about "for'ners taking our jerbs!"

1. Read "Gorilla Mindset," by Mike Cernovich. It'll do you good to work through the exercises. I've been recommending it to people for a while now and seen some transformations for the better. (My mindset was forged in the bowels of Hell, public education in the 70s, so too touchy-feely for me; still good.)

2. Read "Not caring what other people think is a superpower," by heavyweight boxer and physics student Ed Latimore. I call that superpower "engineer mindset," myself.

3. Read "Antifragile," by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, to understand how to turn adversity into advantage. I'm guessing few of y'all will grok the message, but it's still worth trying.

If you have the drive to read these books and to follow-through, you don't have to worry about for'ners taking your jerbs.

Blogger Snidely Whiplash March 10, 2017 3:36 PM  

The issue is not only trust levels. There are two other factors; identity and culture.
Culture at the most practical level is the rules by which people live. Most of that is manners. How do you greet people on the street? How to you make a business agreement? How do you interact with a store clerk? When do you apologize and what happens when you do? How do you make a pass at a girl? How does she say yes?

Every time there's a difference in manners it adds friction. Every time you act a specific way, expecting a specific response, and you get a different one, it rankles.
As an example, one I've run into in real life, you should never compliment a Persian man on his clothes, jewelry or other minor possessions. If you do, he is culturally obligated to offer them to you, and you are obligated to accept them. So an American social pleasantry "Nice watch", becomes a challenge of his religiosity, wealth, social status and value as a human being.
And we all know by now that the Arab method of making a pass at a girl is to hold her down and force sex on her.

In bad times, even if the cultures are compatible, the mere fact of a different identity causes friction. The fact that you can oppose your group interest against another means that resentment will be created and will build. It's only in go-go boom times that diverse groups can get along, and even then, only by means of interacting as little as possible.

Let's assume that's true (and it very well may be), that does not mean that they are the entirety of the problem or that the dumb white privates also don't do dumb shit, to much of the same results.

I work with an old Air Force retiree who worked on an outpost in Greece. Even with almost lily white population there (since it was only those with good brains at the time, counter-intel outpost that it was), they weren't exactly welcomed with open arms by the local population.

They had to be told specifically, "Don't do anything with the local women. Don't."

Immigration....better described as Invasion....IS the ONLY important issue we have in front of us.
The REASON it is the ONLY important issue is because if we WIN on every other issue, except Immigration, our WINs will amount to nothing and we will still lose this country....either to secession and partition, civil war, or a dissolution similar to what happened to the Soviet Union.

In fact, if we ONLY WIN on immigration, it will not matter if we lose on all other issues, because we will still have a country and self-government and those failures will not last forever.

There are 95 MILLION Americans who have been pushed out of the labor force and tens of millions MORE Americans, who are actually counted as unemployed. The long-term prospect of a Trump bounce in the economy must be partially tempered by the fact that robotics and automation will make it difficult for us ever to recover the jobs economy of the past.....unless we get that civil war we keep hearing about. (Smile) Then everyone will have a full-time job, with lots of overtime, carrying a sharpened stick....either into combat or to grow food.

China has shown no creativity since the invention of gunpowder.

Almost all of China's advances lately has certainly been through theft, and there's been nothing groundbreaking in a very long time. However, have they truly created absolutely nothing, even if it's minor?

The original contention was "Low trust and heterogeneous low trust societies have an implicit upper limit to the degree that the society can advance unless there is an accessible high trust society that can be used to extract societal advances from in a parasitic manner", after all.

Are they catapulting themselves by hitching a free ride as dishonestly as they can, or are they completely incapable of independent creativity? Given the fact that they did in fact invent things, albeit long ago, I'm leaning towards the former.
