Brooks on the Intellectual Right


In today's NYT, David Brooks commends the Republican Party for an intellectual rebirth, and lists several authors.  However, the only new book he discusses is "Suicide of the West" by Jonah Goldberg of the National Review.  According to Brooks, the book deals with the modern application of John Locke's ideas about the relationship between the individual and society. 

Brooks Is good about discussing new books and new ideas, but it seems like they are almost always by other Jewish writers, like Goldberg.  Wikipedia says Goldberg's mother is Episcopalian, but that he was raised Jewish, like his father.  It seems from reading Brooks that he thinks the only people doing good, original thinking in the US today are Jews.  This could be true; Jews dominate the American literary world on both the left and the right, although it may turn out that there are some good non-Jewish writers today who are not recognized because all of the critics are Jewish.  In addition to Jewish writers, there is a strong movement to recognize minority writers, especially blacks and Muslims, just because of their race.    

Goldberg's book deals with John Locke, who was not Jewish.  While Locke was writing what turned out to be revolutionary ideas that motivated the British colonies in America to rebel against the King, Jews in central Europe were writing revolutionary ideas about overthrowing their rulers.  It did take a little longer, but their writings, especially Karl Marx's, led to the overthrow of the Tsar and the creation of the Soviet Union. 

Many of the Jews who came to America in the early 1900s were rabid Communists, who were advocating that the US become Communist.  Interestingly one of them was William Browder's grandfather, who was the head of the Communist Party in America.  William Browder is an American financier who made billions playing the Russian economy after the fall of the Soviet Union, until he crossed Vladimir Putin, who cut him off.  In retribution, Browder pushed the US Government to impose sanctions on Russian oligarchs who remained close to Putin, thus extracting his financial revenge.  Thus, US sanctions on Russia are to a significant extent a weapon in a slugging match between billionaire Jews.  After the American government did Browder's bidding, he renounced his American citizenship and became a British citizen.  Browder was the author of the Magnitsky Act, which was the subject of the famous pre-election meeting in Trump Tower between Donald Trump's sons and a Russian lawyer.  William Browder may succeed where his grandfather failed -- in bringing down the United States Government.   

But I digress.  If the United States must choose between Locke and Marx, I choose Locke.  Locke was a member of my tribe, as were the Founding Fathers in the British colonies who embodied his ideas in the new government of what became the United States. At the moment, the ship of state based on these ideas is listing badly.

Race and Self-Esteem


The following quotation from Francis Fukuyama sheds some light on the disputes going on about racial equality and Confederate statues. 

“But in addition, human beings seek recognition of their own worth, or of the people, things, or principles that they invest with worth. The propensity to invest the self with a certain value, and to demand recognition for that value, is what in today’s popular language we would call “self-esteem.” The propensity to feel self-esteem arises out of the part of the soul called thymos. It is like an innate human sense of justice. People believe that they have a certain worth, and when other people treat them as though they are worth less than that, they experience the emotion of anger. Conversely, when people fail to live up to their own sense of worth, they feel shame, and when they are evaluated correctly in proportion to their worth, they feel pride”

Jewish Holocaust Worries


Following up on  my last post about how Jews refused to be counted as Jews by any non-Jewish organization, I understand why Jews may be worried.  Nazi Germany made Jews wear stars of David to identify themselves.  They certainly don't want to go through that again, with good reason.  However, if they are so worried about being identified as Jews, they should shut up about calling everybody else "anti-Semitic."  You can't object to other people classifying you as Semitic, if you yourself classified yourself as Semitic.  In addition, Jews are among the worst at classifying and criticizing other racial groups, in particular Southern white men.  If Southern white men are fair game for Jews, then Jews should be fair game for Southern white men.  Better would be to get off this racist kick altogether. 

I'm sure, people will say, "What about Charlottesville, with white men chanting, 'Jews will not replace us'?"  My answer is that the Jews and the blacks started the problem by proposing to tear down the Confederate monuments.  Charlottesville mayor Signer was Jewish, and the police chief, who should have maintained order, was black.  Basically, the Jews and blacks said to the whites, "We hate your white ancestors."  The white men did not initiate the hatred, although they did react to it. 

Jews Claim to Be White and Semitic



Jews frequently shout "Anti-Semitism" when anybody says anything critical of them; however, when organizations label their population or membership, Jews claim to be white.  They oppose adding "Jewish" as a racial category anywhere.  As a result, if you look at population figures, it is difficult to figure out what the Jewish population is.  You frequently see estimates of 2% or 3%, but is it?  Is Jewishness a race or a religion or both?  For population figures, it has to be a race, rather than a religion, unless you are specifically counting members of religions.  In general, people think of white people as European.  Jews have lived in central and eastern Europe for a thousand years; yet, they have refused to assimilate and have remained, by their own declarations, Middle Eastern Semites.  They insist that they are not European.  And thus, I believe they insist that they are not "white." 

I began thinking about this when looking at diversity statistics for elite universities.  These days diversity is everything, and Harvard claims to be one of the most politically correct, diverse universities in existence.  According to CollegeFacutal.com, Harvard is one of the most diverse universities.  It ranks 11th out of 2,475.  Here are two of the charts from CollegeFactual, one for undergraduates and one for faculty: 

Group
Percent of Undergraduates
White
45.1%
Asian
16.6%
Non-Resident Alien
11.9%
Hispanic/Latino
10.1%
Black or African American
6.1%
American Indian or Alaska Native
0.3%
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
0.1%
Ethnicity Unknown
9.8%

From <https://www.collegefactual.com/colleges/harvard-university/student-life/diversity/chart-ethnic-diversity.html>

And

Group
Percent of Faculty
White
69.2%
Non-Resident Alien
9.1%
Asian
7.6%
Hispanic/Latino
6.5%
Black or African American
6.0%
American Indian or Alaska Native
0.2%
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
0.1%
Ethnicity Unknown
1.3%

From <https://www.collegefactual.com/colleges/harvard-university/student-life/diversity/chart-faculty-ethnic-diversity.html>

Note that neither chart has a group called "Jewish" or "Semitic."  Therefore, Harvard has clearly labeled Jewish students and faculty as "white"  On the other hand, the Jewish organization Hillel says 12% of the undergraduate population is Jewish, and 67% of the graduate students are Jewish.  If a total of 12% of all undergrad Harvard students are Jewish, then about 27% of the total "white" students are Jewish, and only about 33% of all Harvard students are whites of European ancestry, as opposed to Semitic ancestry.  If Jews make up only 2% or 3% of the US population, then Jews are overrepresented at Harvard by several hundred percent, and European whites, who make up about half of the US population are seriously underrepresented.  No one really knows, because Jews refuse to be counted as Jews; therefore, they can be Jews when they want to be, and whites when they want to be.  It's dishonest and cruel, but that's what Harvard stands for and teaches. 

Because Jews refuse to be identified as Jews except in Jewish circles (e.g., the Hillel statistics), this same technique is used everywhere.  The US Census may ask about immigration status and whether someone is black or white, but it will not ask if someone is Jewish.  Jews won't allow it.

Samuel Huntington on Multiculturalism in Ameria

The following is from Samuel Huntington's 1993 essay in Foreign Affairs in reply to criticism of his 1991 essay.  

https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/global-commons/1993-12-01/if-not-civilizations-what-samuel-huntington-responds-his-critics

AMERICA UNDONE?
One function of a paradigm is to highlight what is important (e.g., the potential for escalation in clashes between groups from different civilizations); another is to place familiar phenomena in a new perspective. In this respect, the civilizational paradigm may have implications for the United States. Countries like the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia that bestride civilizational fault lines tend to come apart. The unity of the United States has historically rested on the twin bedrocks of European culture and political democracy. These have been essentials of America to which generations of immigrants have assimilated. The essence of the American creed has been equal rights for the individual, and historically immigrant and outcast groups have invoked and thereby reinvigorated the principles of the creed in their struggles for equal treatment in American society. The most notable and successful effort was the civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King, Jr., in the 1950s and 1960s. Subsequently, however, the demand shifted from equal rights for individuals to special rights (affirmative action and similar measures) for blacks and other groups. Such claims run directly counter to the underlying principles that have been the basis of American political unity; they reject the idea of a "color-blind" society of equal individuals and instead promote a "color-conscious" society with government-sanctioned privileges for some groups. In a parallel movement, intellectuals and politicians began to push the ideology of "multiculturalism," and to insist on the rewriting of American political, social, and literary history from the viewpoint of non-European groups. At the extreme, this movement tends to elevate obscure leaders of minority groups to a level of importance equal to that of the Founding Fathers. Both the demands for special group rights and for multiculturalism encourage a clash of civilizations within the United States and encourage what Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., terms "the disuniting of America."
The United States is becoming increasingly diverse ethnically and racially. The Census Bureau estimates that by 2050 the American population will be 23 percent Hispanic, 16 percent black and 10 percent Asian-American. In the past the United States has successfully absorbed millions of immigrants from scores of countries because they adapted to the prevailing European culture and enthusiastically embraced the American Creed of liberty, equality, individualism, democracy. Will this pattern continue to prevail as 50 percent of the population becomes Hispanic or nonwhite? Will the new immigrants be assimilated into the hitherto dominant European culture of the United States? If they are not, if the United States becomes truly multicultural and pervaded with an internal clash of civilizations, will it survive as a liberal democracy? The political identity of the United States is rooted in the principles articulated in its founding documents. Will the de-Westernization of the United States, if it occurs, also mean its de-Americanization? If it does and Americans cease to adhere to their liberal democratic and European-rooted political ideology, the United States as we have known it will cease to exist and will follow the other ideologically defined superpower onto the ash heap of history.
What follows next is from a Brookings Institution study:

The U.S. will become “minority white” in 2045, Census projects

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/03/14/the-us-will-become-minority-white-in-2045-census-projects/
New census population projections confirm the importance of racial minorities as the primary demographic engine of the nation’s future growth, countering an aging, slow-growing and soon to be declining white population. The new statistics project that the nation will become “minority white” in 2045. During that year, whites will comprise 49.9 percent of the population in contrast to 24.6 percent for Hispanics, 13.1 percent for blacks, 7.8 percent for Asians, and 3.8 percent for multiracial populations....
Among the minority populations, the greatest growth is projected for multiracial populations, Asians and Hispanics with 2018–2060 growth rates of 175, 93, and 85 percent, respectively. The projected growth rate for blacks is 34 percent.* The demographic source of growth varies across groups. For example, immigration contributes to one-third of Hispanic growth over this time span, with the rest attributable to natural increase (the excess of births over deaths). Among Asians, immigration contributes to three quarters of the projected growth.

Cohn & Kushner


Stock futures predicted the stock market would go down today, which It did for a while, because of Gary Cohn's resignation from the Trump White House.  This indicated to me that the Jews who run the US financial industry were alarmed and disappointed that he was leaving.  However the market recovered towards the end of the day, perhaps indicating that they were not too alarmed, or that Jews are not as dominant on Wall Street as I think they are. 

In addition, most of the people that the New York Times reports as corrupting Jared Kushner in the White House are Jews, although the man from Citibank that he was talking to was not. 




I have also thought that Jewish financiers are upset because the new chair of the Fed, Powell, is not Jewish.  They wanted a second term for Janet Yellen.  The stock market went down on Powell's first day as chair and again when he testified before Congress, but it has bounced back.  A commentator on CNBC said that Powell would nit be as friendly to investors as Bernanke and Yellen were..  

I can't figure out Trump's relationship with the Jewish community.  They seem not to trust him, but he seems not concerned about any united Jewish influence.  He can take it or leave it.  He clearly is comfortable with Jews, since his daughter has converted to Judaism and his Jewish son-in-law is one of his closest advisers. 

So far, I have not heard any Jewish names in the running to replace Cohn, but we shall see.

Jews Versus Gentile Fed Chief?

In retaliation against Trump's selection of a gentile, Jerome Powell, as the new chair of the Federal Reserve to replace Janet Yellen, a Jew, the Jews who control American financial markets may have driven the stock market down thousands of points.  I don't know how they did it, but it shows the control that Jews hold over the financial system.  It may not have been consciously planned, but there was a concerted reaction to the fear that the Jewish sugar daddies and mamas at the Fed who had taken care of the Jews on Wall Street for 50 years were going away. This could be a valid fear.  Jews are clearly superior at finance; a gentile may be stupider or more incompetent, and therefore more likely to let the economy get away from him. 

On the other hand, the policies pursued by the Fed for the last ten years have been very beneficial to wealthy financiers.  Trump has Mnuchin and Cohn to protect Jewish financial interests, but Jewish investors may feel like they need a Jew in charge of the Fed to protect their interests. 

The Jews believed that they were going to take over control of the American political system with the election of Hillary Clinton.  Although Clinton is not Jewish, she was the perfect front person for them, and pretty much guaranteed to look out for Jewish interests, since Jews had been some of her biggest campaign supporters.  She would no doubt have had prominent Jews in her cabinet and her White House staff, who would look out for Jewish interests as Jack Lew, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, and others did in the Obama administration, and Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Robert Reich, and other did in the Clinton administration. 


Of course, it's possible that the market crash on Powell's first day was just coincidence, but it's very suspicious.  It now looks like the crash is over and the market is recovering, but time will tell.  If the market keeps going up, then maybe there is nothing to the short term crash.  However, something triggered a sell-off after the stock market had been going almost straight up for about ten years.  Powell could just be unlucky, or there could be some racial component to the stock market mini-crash.
