Jackie Mason vs. James Watson: Jews, IQ, and “Shvartzers”

By Nicholas Stix
Updated 4:06 and 4:19 a.m., Monday, December 17, 2007.


In the Watson Affair (read this, this, and this), 79-year-old, Nobel Prize-winning geneticist James Watson was forced, in late October, to recant his statement that blacks are, on average, less intelligent than whites and that there are genetic reasons for this inequality, and to resign his position as chancellor of the world-famous (due to Watson’s 40-year leadership) Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Since then, ever more rats have been jumping the good ship IQ, including some I hadn’t even known were on board.

Two such rats are the authors of Schmucks!, comedian Jackie Mason and “celebrity divorce attorney” Raoul Felder. Mason and Felder, politically neo-conservative, Ashkenazi Jews — the kind that were raised as liberals, but changed through experience — joined the anti-science, leftwing-dominated mob denouncing Watson.

In “Race and Intelligence,” Mason and Felder pile on, lying like Persian rugs, not only about the science, which backs up Watson in spades, but at least in Mason’s case, about his own beliefs as well.

Apparently a subject that has attracted scientists is the question of the correlation between race and intelligence. Now don't get us wrong. We believe that basically this is an area of wasteful analysis. In our lives, we don't deal with “races,” we deal with individual people. For instance, if science has determined that Jews are smarter than Buddhists, the fact is if we needed an operation, we would rather have a smart Buddhist picking up the scalpel than a dumb Jew. But if scientists want to explore a particular subject for what they believe is a search for the truth, and want to waste their (hopefully, not the public's) money on a particular piece of nonsense, so be it.

A worldwide uproar occurred because Nobel Prize winner James Watson made a racist statement about the supposed lower intelligence of Africans. “All our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours,” according to the London Sunday Times, but then he added, “Whereas all our testing says, ‘Not really.’” Who cares? Even if true — which we believe it is not — it is basically an irrelevancy. Does that mean, if Watson is to be believed, that Africans should not be entitled to an equal share of the economic pie, the right to be equally educated, or the right to have all the protections and benefits that government can offer? In short, even if it were true — again, which we do not believe it is — who cares? Might not centuries of exploitation and denial of the benefits of education and health facilities cause testing to be skewed?

Watson's position is eerily similar to that of Professor Arthur Jensen, who wrote an article in 1969 in the Harvard Educational Review wherein he postulated that racial differences in intelligence test scores may have a genetic origin. He suffered the same fate as Dr. Watson.

Mason and Felder also speak of Watson’s remarks on African IQ as “pseudo-science” on a par with “global warming and the Loch Ness monster.”

Mason and Felder don’t deal with “races”? “Who cares” whether one group is smarter than any others? A black with an IQ of 67 or 85 has the same right as a Jew with an IQ of 112 to get admitted to a prestigious university or get a high-paying, intellectually demanding job? “Centuries of exploitation and denial of the benefits of education and health facilities”? (In the latter case, are they talking about blacks or Jews?)

As for Arthur Jensen, he may have been vilified and assaulted for his work, but that work endures scientifically, and Jensen did not suffer the same fate as Watson. Jensen was not suspended, much less forced to resign by his employer, UC Berkeley, and he never repudiated his research on intelligence. And there is nothing “eerily similar” about the common points between Watson and Jensen; based on the known facts of psychometrics and genetics, the two scientific giants simply agree. It happens.

(Jensen’s classic, 1969 article, “How Much Can We Boost IQ and Scholastic Achievement?” was published as a stand-alone volume (No. 39) of that notorious lunatic fringe publication, The Harvard Educational Review. I heartily recommend it to Mason and Felder, should they ever wish to learn something about the science of intelligence.)

As for Watson having made “a racist statement,” the truth cannot be racist.

It is a scientific fact that African blacks have radically lower average IQs than whites, and that American blacks also have considerably lower average IQs than whites. One may curse a scientific fact, as one may curse the rain, but one cannot wish it away. The average group IQs are: white Americans, 100; black Americans, 85; blacks in sub-Saharan Africa, 67. It is likewise a scientific fact that at 105, East Asians (including Red China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan) have the highest average IQ of any identifiable racial group. (Richard Lynn, Race Differences in Intelligence: An Evolutionary Analysis, 2006, 23, 37, 44, 128, 130.) Ashkenazi (European) Jews’ IQ has been estimated to average 112-115 (PDF).

The genetics behind group IQ differences are based — as Watson was intimately aware — on the alleles (“alternative forms for genes”) for intelligence that developed in those races that left Africa 50,000 years ago, as opposed to those that stayed. Some of Watson’s tormentors knew this, and were thus traitors to science; others were scientific illiterates who lied out of ignorance, spite, and the will to power.

Due to Jackie Mason’s distinctive public track record on race, I am going to focus on him. But first, a quick history of the loving community of blacks and Jews.


No group has done more for blacks than Jews. As a result, urban blacks have long hated Jews even more than they hate every other group, including blacks. As my mom always says, “No good deed goes unpunished.” The Jewish machers (big shots) got the glory, while encouraging ever more of the already robust black racism (PDF) that destroyed and continues to destroy the lives of countless Jewish kleine pishers (“little nobodies,” literally, “little pissers”).

(In addition to the machers’racial pandering, two myths get in the away of appreciating the historical relationship of blacks and Jews: 1. ‘All Jews are rich and powerful’; and 2. ‘As a people that must dwell alone, Jews exhibit an incredible solidarity, which they developed as an “evolutionary strategy,” in order to destroy gentile host societies.’ The second myth, in particular, is the expression of people who know absolutely gornisht (nothing) about Jews, who engage in intermarriage at a higher rate than any other religious or ethnic group in America.)

In his 1963 essay, “My Negro Problem–and Ours,” Commentary editor Norman Podhoretz reflected on how he and other working-class and poor white, especially Jewish boys he grew up with in 1930s and ‘40s Brooklyn were brutalized by racist black boys. And that was in the “good old” days!

Honest Jews have for generations been increasingly bitter about black anti-Semitism. After all, Jews don’t target blacks for muggings, assaults, rapes, murders and riots, or ethnically cleanse them from neighborhoods and workplaces. And John Podhoretz notwithstanding, unqualified Jews don’t get affirmative action jobs in place of qualified blacks. (Blacks have long terrorized white gentiles as well, but there is no phony history of a loving community uniting those two groups.)

The “Ambassador” Gets Recalled

During the 1989 New York City mayoral race, Jackie Mason served, in historian Chris McNickle’s words, as Republican-Liberal candidate Rudolph Giuliani’s “unofficial ambassador to the Jewish community.”

Following on the heels of the second of his many wildly successful, one-man Broadway shows, the Tony Award winner was on top of the world. In August 1987, even dour, pc New York Times theater critic Frank Rich wrote, “I hereby confess that I was the last drama critic in New York to catch Jackie Mason's act on Broadway - a full six months after the comedian's opening night.” Rich was sure he would be immune to the comic’s crude charms, but had to admit that, “for all the familiarity of his [Borscht Belt] attack, Mr. Mason was very, very funny.” Among other things, Rich also praised Mason’s lack of pretence, refusal to pander to the audience, and honesty.

Mason’s success and honesty have always been of a piece with his volatility. Considering that his hair-pin-trigger temper had led to powerful TV host Ed Sullivan exiling him to show business limbo a generation earlier, Mason knew exactly what the stakes were. And yet, he risked a long, hard fall with some blunt talk on race.

During an August 31, 1989 off-the-record luncheon interview arranged by Mason’s agent, Jyll Rosenfeld, with Giuliani and four Newsweek writers (Jonathan Alter, Nancy Cooper, George Hackett and “an old friend” of Mason’s, Charles Leerhsen), Mason said that socialist (or as the New York Times’ Sam Roberts called him, “mainstream Democrat”) David Dinkins, who was running to become New York City’s first black mayor, was just a “fancy shvartzer with a moustache.” (I recall the phrase as “just a shvartzer in a fancy suit,” but Mason gave multiple versions of it.)

One month later, during an interview with the radical leftwing New York weekly, the Village Voice, Mason argued,

There is a sick Jewish problem of voting for a black man no matter how unfit he is for the job. They feel guilty for the black predicament, as if the Jews caused it…. The Jews are constantly giving millions to the black people. Have you ever heard of a black person giving a quarter to a Jew?”

(Mason reportedly also used “shvartzer” during the Voice interview; I could not determine whether that interview was on the record.)

When the Newsweek interview somehow came out within the Village Voice story, the four Newsweek staffers were severely reprimanded for failing to report what Mason had said. (But the interview was off the record!)

Forget what “journalistic ethics experts” say; most scribes routinely either suppress or report impolitic remarks made to them in private by public figures, based solely on feelings of political, ethnic, and/or racial loyalty or enmity. In this case, however, rank opportunism was also at work. In violation of Newsweek policy, Jonathan Alter had pitched an article on the Mason interview, playing up the racial angle, to Adam Moss, the editor of New York’s short-lived, lefty political magazine, 7 Days. (The Voice article also somehow — see below — exposed the 7 Days affair.)

Newsweek responded to the Voice story by reporting on the off-the-record luncheon, quoting Mason’s “shvartzer” line, and saying, “Giuliani joined in the nervous laughter, making no effort to rebuke Mason.”

Not only did Jonathan Alter violate Newsweek’s ethics rules, by not asking his editors’ permission to peddle to another media outlet what they considered to be “proprietary” material, since he had recorded Mason while on assignment from them, but he violated the trust of Charles Leerhsen and Jyll Rosenfeld, without whom he would never have gotten the interview. And then, for good measure, he lied about the whole thing.

Although Newsweek’s honchos reportedly only refrained from firing the four reporters after they privately showed proper remorse, Alter shamelessly spun the story in public, calling the matter “Much ado about nothing,” because the story had never run in 7 Days. That’s like a street punk insisting he’s a good guy, because his intended victim somehow managed to slip his sucker-punch.

As NYT media reporter Alex Jones wrote on October 14, 1989,

Mr. Alter said yesterday: “We all regret that the remark was not printed in Newsweek in a more timely way. As for the 7 Days business, I never wrote a word of any article for 7 Days, though discussions took place, and I think the rest of it is much ado about nothing.”

The reason Alter never wrote the story for 7 Days is because after he pitched it to Adam Moss, he asked Jyll Rosenfeld for permission to quote Mason. When Alter confirmed to Rosenfeld that Mason had used the “s” word, and that Alter planned on quoting him doing so, she refused to grant him permission.

Alex Jones tried to have it both ways. He sought to help Alter and hurt Rosenfeld, by emphasizing that there was no “explicit” agreement that the interview was off the record. Jones doth protest too much. That Alter would call Rosenfeld to ask her permission to use the material left no doubt that both understood that the interview had been off the record. But Jones also noted, “The situation was doubly charged regarding Mr. Alter, who has often chastised news organizations for journalistic and ethical lapses.” (Perhaps Jones told himself he was being balanced, or perhaps he felt constrained by Times press room politics to spin things the way he did.)

Alex Jones also misrepresented what Mason had told the Village Voice, writing “The comedian later was forced to leave the campaign after being quoted as saying that some Jews would vote for a black candidate out of guilt.” But Mason had said an “unfit” black candidate, which is considerably different.

As historian Chris McNickle recounts in To be Mayor of New York: Ethnic Politics in the City, Mason immediately resigned his unpaid position in the Giuliani campaign, and Giuliani distanced himself from Mason, saying “the remarks do not reflect my views.”

Mason proved prescient: Due to over 30 percent of white voters — including 23 percent of white Catholics and almost 40 percent of Jews — pulling the lever for Dinkins, while less than three percent of blacks voted for Giuliani, Dinkins, who had promised to be a “racial healer,” won by only 47,000 out of 1.8 million votes cast the closest mayoral race since the five boroughs were joined in 1898 to create modern New York City. (Source: McNickle.)

(In 1992, Alex Jones would leave the Times to co-author with his wife, and with the paper’s cooperation, a history of the Times. Upon the book’s 1999 release, the paper promoted it, which led to Jones and his
wife being named the following year to share an endowed journalism chair at Harvard, where Jones was also named to run the school’s Shorenstein Center on the Press. When 7 Days folded in 1990, after only two years in business and $10 million in losses, pc featherweight Adam Moss landed at the Times, where he would eventually be entrusted with the radical dumbing-down of its Sunday Magazine. Since 2003, Moss has run the already pre-dumbed-down, New York Magazine. At Newsweek, Jonathan Alter is more powerful than ever. And lest I forget, the Village Voice, which broke the 7 Days affair, was then owned by Leonard Stern, who simultaneously owned 7 Days. Big Journalism — which includes “J-schools” — is a small world, after all.)

A Bissl Yiddish

In German, which has no “n” word, “Schwarzer” simply means “black man”; “Neger” simply means “negro.” (“Schwarzer” is the German spelling; “shvartzer” is the Yiddish version phoneticized using the Roman alphabet.)

But Mason wasn’t speaking German. He was speaking Yiddish, the roughly thousand-year-old dialect born in the Rhine River Valley, that pairs the ancient Hebrew alphabet with a vocabulary that is approximately 67 percent Middle High German, 17 percent from various Slavic tongues, and 17 percent Biblical Hebrew. And on top of that, Mason was using “shvartzer” as a New York Jew would, even if he was born and raised in Wisconsin.

Growing up in Long Beach, Long Island, from 1965 until circa 1974, I lived in a Jewish building. Old Jewish ladies sat on beach chairs in front of our building, bundled up in their winter coats, no matter how hot it was outside. (“Aren’t you cold?” they’d ask me.)

I grew accustomed to three ways they would occasionally pepper their English with “shvartzer”: 1. Meaning innocent and non-threatening, as in ‘He’s black, but he’s o.k.’; 2. Meaning borderline, as in ‘Maybe good, maybe bad, who knows?’; and 3. With an entirely pejorative meaning, the same as the “n” word, instantly recognizable through the drawn-out first syllable.

Notwithstanding Mason’s tendency to cut short his syllables in his trademark now mumbling, now staccato delivery (or so it was, when I saw him on the Broadway stage in the late 1980s), I’ll leave it to the reader to conclude which meaning of “shvartzer” he had in mind.

While Mason was stupid to call Dinkins a “fancy shvartzer,” he showed great courage in emphasizing Dinkins’ unfitness for the office of mayor, and “liberal” Jews’ craven racial paternalism.

After David Dinkins’ inauguration as New York’s first black mayor, he immediately proved to be so incompetent, that even Jewish socialist staffers who loved him almost immediately began seeking to escape his administration.

Bury My Heart in Crown Heights

The amazing thing is not that some Jews complain about “shvartzers,” but that more don’t. The only time I recall my late, Hungarian-born Nana (1893?-1976) mentioning race was circa 1970, when she referred to a “nice colored man.” (“Colored” was the respectable term used by ordinary whites and blacks alike until the early-to-mid 1970s. “Negro” was in parallel use by white and black elites until the same period. Circa 1918, when my Nana left her parents’ Lower East Side home, she also quit the Hungarian and Yiddish of her childhood. I never heard her say a word in either tongue.)

The last time I heard anyone say “shvartzer” was in 1992. I was visiting a Chabad-Lubavitch Chassidic friend in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, one year after a racist black mob had engaged in a three-day pogrom against the Chassidim. At one point during the pogrom’s first night, a black man, Charles Price, yelled “Kill the Jew!” and the mob lynched visiting Australian rabbinic scholar, Yankel Rosenbaum.

Mayor Dinkins ordered the NYPD to let the mob have its way. When the rioters threw bottles and rocks at New York’s Finest, the policemen ran away. On day three, Mayor Dinkins addressed the mob, but the rioters threw bottles at him, too! He only ordered the NYPD to stop running away and end the pogrom, out of anger at the lack of racial loyalty the rioters showed him.

Note that the “Rebbe” (spiritual leader) of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), had endorsed Mayor Dinkins in the 1989 election.

Before Yankel Rosenbaum died, he identified his killer, Lemrick Nelson Jr., in whose pants pocket police found the blood-soaked murder weapon. Nelson also repeatedly confessed to the crime. On October 29, 1992, a racist, black and Hispanic-dominated jury acquitted Nelson, and the next day celebrated with the killer and his lawyer.

When we were alone during my visit, my inconsolable Chassidic friend repeated, “Shvartzers, shvartzers, shvartzers.”

I no longer recall whether my visit was before or after the juror-accessories aided and abetted Nelson.

Already at the time of the pogrom, the socialist MSM sought to rationalize it and the lynching of Yankel Rosenbaum, using the same pathetic boilerplate that leftists always use to rationalize racially-motivated, black-on-white violence. As my old philosophy teacher, Hans Joachim Kramer used to say, “Gründe lassen sich immer finden.” “Reasons can always be found.”

The 1993 election was even closer than its immediate predecessor, with Giuliani winning by a mere 44,000 votes. The Times’ Sam Roberts employed desperate sophistry, in an effort to diminish the significance of a Republican (and a former prosecutor, no less!) winning election in a city where registered Democratic voters outnumbered registered Republicans 5-1, and where the municipal unions and the TV and print media were, with rare exceptions such as Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post, rabidly leftwing.

Giuliani got his revenge, and Mason got a measure of vindication … but Yankel Rosenbaum was still dead.

Intelligence and Integrity

Ashkenazi Jews have a well-earned reputation for being the smartest group around, a reputation they have long been extremely proud of. And why not? What are they going to brag about, Jewish basketball stars? If you think a couple of brilliant Ashkenazim like Jackie Mason and Raoul Felder actually believe that all races are intellectually equal — you know, the races they say they “don't deal with” — and that a typical African with an IQ of 67 (or 85, for that matter) has the same right to admission to a selective university and to an intellectually demanding job as a typical Jew with an IQ of 112 or higher, I have a great deal for you on a slightly used bridge.

Note too that typically, every group obsessively talks privately about, and feels superior to every other group it comes into contact with.

And Ashkenazi or no, virtually all educated people, Left or Right, care about intelligence. As Steve Sailer has often wryly observed, in his Sailer Law of IQ,

Liberals tend to believe two things about IQ:

• First, that IQ is a meaningless, utterly discredited concept.

• Second, that liberals are better than conservatives because they have much higher IQs.

Mason and Felder each stomps on Watson with only one foot. While telling a “noble lie” about race and IQ, they defend scientists’ right to pursue “racist” research in peace. Apparently each thinks he can thereby divert attention from himself, while buying a little peace from the forces that mugged Watson.

At 76, Jackie Mason is almost as old as James Watson. There is a cowardly symmetry to Mason taking a cheap shot at Watson, in the course of implicitly recanting his own beliefs. How can Mason live with himself? (How, for that matter, can Watson?)

As John Stuart Mill observed in “On Liberty,” all the intelligence in the world is worthless, without intellectual courage. In other words, Felder and Mason may be smart, but they’re still a couple of schmucks.

E.C. said...

First, Jewish people are the most intelligent. They win almost 40% of the Nobel Prize's and they have a small population of only 14 million. So by far they exceed the other races in intelligence. The other races having huge numbers and such small contributions.

Second, IQ tests, test intellectual conformity, not creativity and originality. This would explain the Asian high IQ's. They as a people are the ultimate conformists.

In IQ tests there is typically only one answer to the problem. That problem being a social conformity to reason. But everyone knows that Genius's and all of the greatest developments in the world are not the product of conformity. Conformity never breeds creativity. We can see this in the lack of influence the Asian population has had on Science. China used to be called the "sick man" of Asia. Their population is massive and their contribution to innovation is almost nil. We can see this lack of originality in their adoptation of European philosophies, I.e. Communism.

Friedrich Nietzsche and other Philosophers have critized Asians. Nietsche used the words "Pallid osification" to describe Orientals.

Pallid: lacking sparkle or liveliness.

Osification: The process of becoming set and inflexible in behavior, attitudes, and actions. Inflexible conformity, rigid unthinking acceptance of social conventions.

The reality is Asian people have yet to understand that laws and rules are arbitrary. Europeans make the rules and Asian's follow them.

It also doesn't make sense that Asian's are considered smart because of the fact that they have destroyed their own countries. This is due to over-population and their basic lack of enviromental understanding.

It is also common scientific fact that women who have many children are ignorant, and those who have less children are more intelligent. This has already been proven in studies. So it seems strange to say that Asians are smart when the obviousness of their backwards countries, and medieval lifestyle makes them contrary to that premise.

Europeans have the most advanced civilizations and every other race has yet to meet these levels other than the Japanese. The Japanese only being good at copying other people's inventions and making them better. Other than that their original creativity is lacking as well. They took American cars and made them better. They took the German camera and made it better. And they took German steel and made it better. Otherwise the greatest advances still come from Europeans and Jews. Other than that the Orientals have yet to produce an Einstein or a Thomas Edison.

When it comes to Black people. It makes sense that they have low intellectual comformity, I.e. IQ tests. They are far too creative to be trapped in this unoriginal form of conditioning. You can tell their creative capacity in their athletics, music, dance, and the way they talk. They by far exceed the Asiatic races in these areas. Being better singers, musicians ect. Blacks far exceed Asians in emotive expression. In all of North America there is only one or two famous high-paid Asian actors.

Reality, Europeans rule the world and they have allowed others to exist only out of desire for economic bennifet. They, (Europeans) are also the physically strongest, winning the Strongest Man competitions again and again.

The greater the conformity, the weaker the race. Thus we see the races as they are today. The wild animal being bred out of man, and the physically impotent, conformist thriving.

Otherwise "Group psychology" is the most destructive thing in the world. All these stereotypes are false when it comes to the individual. Individualism is the most important thing for this time. All countries, Religions, groups need to dissolve for man to live in peace.

Two Faces of Racism in Media Coverage of Crown Heights, Brooklyn


"Al Sharpton's legacy lives on and on and on... 25 years after Yankel Rosenbaum" [from 2016]


By Nicholas Stix

I wrote the following item for the Countenance Blogmeister’s friend, Puggg, who is covering until the CB recovers from his injuries, due to a texting driver. However, it ended up running too long for a Sunday Wrap-Up item.

Two different poses of the black, would-be Crown Heights serial rapist. This is the only photo I've seen of the t-shirt that wasn't digitally blurred. A news reader at CBS News yesterday at 8:00 a.m. was the first and only media operative to explain that the language was obscene. And was it, ever! But that information is necessary to catch the perp. In the poses in the center and on the right, the guy looks awfully gay to me.

Crown Heights, Brooklyn: The media have been hitting two racial stories in recent days set in this still predominantly black area that has, however, been gentrifying in recent years.

Not that it was half as poor as the media described it for generations. I had a Hasidic friend who, if memory serves, lived on President Street, where he was the poorest schmuck on the street. This was during the early 1990s, before and after the pogrom. His neighbors, all black, lived in much better, bigger houses than he had. They typically had husband and wife both with highly-paid, high-level, civil service jobs, while he worked for a private, Jewish social service agency, and his wife stayed at home to raise their (then so far) three kids.

The area became notorious for murderous black racism and anti-Semitism in 1991, when blacks engaged in a pogrom against the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidim. A driver on the back end of the procession of the Lubavitchers’ Rebbe (Grand Rabbi) accidentally hit two black children, killing one, little Gavin Cato. Blacks responded by lynching Australian rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum, brutally assaulting Jews, and destroying Jewish-owned property.

(The blacks did this because they knew that the Lubavitchers are lovers, not fighters. They would have never dared to do this to the crazy, violent, Romanian-Hungarian Satmar Hasidim in Williamsburg, on the other side of Brooklyn. They’re the guys with the fur-trimmed streimel hats. The Satmarers hate everyone, including their fellow, non-Satmar Jews.)

“Sharpton and the lawyer representing the Cato family counseled them not to cooperate with authorities in the investigation and demanded a special prosecutor...” Note that Sharpton and his shyster ally were demanding the prosecution of a man who had not committed any crime.

Blacks, led by Al Sharpton, acted as if the driver in the tragic accident, Joseph Lifsh, had committed a capital offense. The late newspaper columnist Mike McAlary, who typically triangulated to the left, listed one case after another of blacks who had fatally run down whites without being arrested. (I can’t remember which paper McAlary was writing for at the time, because he was promiscuous, and constantly hopped from one daily to another, contract be damned. He unfortunately died young of cancer.)

Story one: A black man in his twenties recently attempted to rape four different local women. The MSM are all in thrall to feminism, but they are even more in thrall to black supremacism, and so they have all refused to mention that the perp is black.

Australian rabbinical scholar Yankel Rosenbaum was murdered by Lemrick Nelson Jr., after another member of the lynch mob, Charles Price, shouted, "Kill the Jew!," during the Crown Heights pogrom

Racist murderer Lemrick Nelson Jr.

An anti-Semitic, racist, black lynch mob, which included Lemrick Nelson Jr. and Charles Price, used the accidental death of Gavin Cato (above) as a pretext, with which to murder Yankel Rosenbaum, assault countless Hasidim, and destroy Jews' property for days, while Lee Brown and David Dinkins' NYPD stood down

Story two: A white Canadian woman, Becca Brennan, opened an over-priced bistro named Summerhill. I know it’s overpriced, because its online menu mentions only dishes, but no prices. What’s the old saw? “If you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it.”

Racial socialists, whom the media asserts are locals, have posted signs accusing Brennan of being “racist,” “gentrifier,” “colonialist,” and demonstrated in front of her business.

The demonstrators’ pretext for the demos is that Brennan, who calls her restaurant, a “boozy sandwich shop,” has grungy décor that includes holes in the wall that could pass for bullet holes. Some media outlets assert that Brennan has recanted the claim that they are bullet holes, but that’s not at all clear to this observer.

Many of the demonstrators do not appear to be locals, as their floating rationalizations give witness to—they have stayed in character for black supremacists, in changing the definition of “the community” from the neighborhood to all black people.

All of the demonstrators are racists, but they do not all appear to have the same motivation. Some appear to be racial extortionists, while others want to shut Brennan down, simply because she is white. The media are glad to help, either way.

The comment section of the Gothamist blog, in which white gentrifiers with racial socialist politics profanely condemn … white gentrifiers, has 340 comments on this story, over 90% of whom curse Brennan.

In a battle between gentrifiers and black supremacists, it’s hard to know whom to hate more. A pox on both their houses!

New York Mets Threatened with Long Losing Streak, after Enduring Fourth Straight Failure-to-Lose Incident, Last Night Against the Oakland As


Oakland As' reliever Simon Castro, who claims to be 29...

By Nicholas Stix

Wilmer “There’s Crying in Baseball” Flores hit one of his beautiful line drives for a walk-off homer against Dominican As’ reliever Simon Castro, in the ninth inning. (Castro claims to be 29, but looks like he’s past 40.)

Zack Wheeler had done everything he could to lose, giving up four runs in the first inning, and a solo shot in the third of his five innings of work, leaving the Mets down 5-0. And yet, the Mets accidentally scored four runs in the sixth against previously virtually unhittable Oakland starter Sean Manaea, chasing him with an out to go.

Both teams then went from reliever to reliever, the Mets relying on a particularly dubious bunch—the unreliable Josh Smoker, Josh Edgin (that’s not a typo, I double-checked), and Hansel Robles—all of whom screwed up and got it right, for once.

(By the way, the allegedly 28-year-old Josh Smoker is another guy who looks ten years older than he lists.)

Finally, the score was 5-5, it was Castro vs. Flores, and someone had to lose.

Castro is now 0-1, and Hansel Robles, who got the win, is now 6-1.

But whereas good teams lose one game to end a winning streak, before going back to winning, the Mets, like other bad teams, go from a winning streak to an equally long losing streak. And if recent history is any indication, the Mets are about to embark on a nice, long, losing streak.


... And New York Mets reliever, Josh Smoker, who claims to be 28

How the New York Times’ Editors Lied about the Black Crown Heights Pogrom



Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Telling It Like It wasn’t
Former Times reporter looks back on coverage of the event, and what went wrong.
By Ari L. Goldman August 9, 2011, 12:00 a.m.
The New York Jewish Week

Twenty years ago next week, on the night of Aug. 19, 1991 — the night that Gavin Cato and Yankel Rosenbaum were killed — my editor called me at home to tell me that riots had broken out on the streets of Crown Heights. “We’re covered for tonight but I want you to start your day there tomorrow,” he said.

Over the next three days, working 12 hours shifts and only going home to sleep, I saw and heard many terrible things. I saw police cars set on fire, stores being looted and people bloodied by Billy clubs, rocks and bottles. One woman told me that she barricaded herself into her apartment and put the mattresses on the windows so her children would not be hurt by flying glass.

Over those three days I also saw journalism go terribly wrong. The city’s newspapers, so dedicated to telling both sides of the story in the name of objectivity and balance, often missed what was really going on. Journalists initially framed the story as a “racial” conflict and failed to see the anti-Semitism inherent in the riots. As the 20th anniversary of the riots approaches, I find myself re-examining my own role in the coverage and trying to extract some lessons for myself and my profession.

At the time, I was a religion writer at The New York Times and was well connected in the Lubavitch community, the predominant Jewish group in Crown Heights. I was one of probably a dozen Times reporters and photographers on the streets over the course of the riots. We were a diverse group, representing many religions and racial backgrounds.

My job was to file memos to the main “rewrite” reporters back in the Times office in Manhattan about what I saw and heard. We had no laptops or cellphones in those days so the other reporters and I went to payphones and dictated our memos to a waiting band of stenographers in the home office. The photographers handed their film off to couriers on motorcycles who took the film to the Times.

Yet, when I picked up the paper, the article I read was not the story I had reported. I saw headlines that described the riots in terms solely of race. “Two Deaths Ignite Racial Clash in Tense Brooklyn Neighborhood,” the Times headline said. And, worse, I read an opening paragraph, what journalists call a “lead,” that was simply untrue:

“Hasidim and blacks clashed in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn through the day and into the night yesterday.”

In all my reporting during the riots I never saw — or heard of — any violence by Jews against blacks. But the Times was dedicated to this version of events: blacks and Jews clashing amid racial tensions. To show Jewish culpability in the riots, the paper even ran a picture — laughable even at the time — of a chasidic man brandishing an open umbrella before a police officer in riot gear. The caption read: “A police officer scuffling with a Hasidic man yesterday on President Street.”

I was outraged but I held my tongue. I was a loyal Times employee and deferred to my editors. I figured that other reporters on the streets were witnessing parts of the story I was not seeing.

But then I reached my breaking point. On Aug. 21, as I stood in a group of chasidic men in front of the Lubavitch headquarters, a group of demonstrators were coming down Eastern Parkway. “Heil Hitler,” they chanted. “Death to the Jews.”

Police in riot gear stood nearby but did nothing.

Suddenly rocks and bottles started to fly toward us and a chasidic man just a few feet away from me was hit in the throat and fell to the ground. Some ran to help the injured man but most of us ran for cover. I ran for a payphone and, my hands shaking with rage, dialed my editor. I spoke in a way that I never had before or since when talking to a boss.

“You don’t know what’s happening here!” I yelled. “I am on the streets getting attacked. Someone next to me just got hit. I am writing memos and what comes out in the paper? ‘Hasidim and blacks clashed’? That’s not what is happening here. Jews are being attacked! You’ve got this story all wrong. All wrong.”

I didn’t blame the “rewrite” reporter. I blamed the editors. It was clear that they had settled on a “frame” for the story. The way they saw it, there were two narratives here: the white narrative and the black narrative. And both had equal weight.

After my outburst things got a little better. The next day’s report began like this: “Black youths hurling rocks and bottles scuffled with the police in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn last night, even as Mayor David N. Dinkins tried to personally calm the racially troubled neighborhood after two nights of violence.”

But the Times still had trouble changing its frame. Perhaps most troubling was an article written in the midst of the rioting under this headline: “Amid Distrust in Brooklyn: Boy and Scholar Fall Victim.” The article compared the life of Gavin Cato, the 7-year-old boy killed in the car accident that spurred the riots, and the life of Yankel Rosenbaum, 29, who was stabbed to death later that night. It recycled every newspaper cliché and was an insult to the memory of both victims, but, again, it fit the frame.

“They did not know each other,” the article said. “They had no reason to know… They died unaware….” In the eyes of the Times, the deaths were morally equivalent and had equal weight.

The Times editorial page followed suit. “The violence following an auto accident in Crown Heights reminds all New Yorkers that the city’s race relations remains dangerously strained,” the editorial said. It concluded by praising Mayor Dinkins, giving him credit “for a hard night’s work” and doing “the job that New Yorkers elected him to do.”

The one who first broke the frame and spoke the truth was the fearless poet of the New York newspaper business in those days, Jimmy Breslin, then a columnist for Newsday. He was one of numerous reporters, photographers and television journalists who were beaten or otherwise injured during the riots. In Breslin’s case, he was dragged from a taxi by a group of rampaging young men, pummeled and stripped of his clothes. That night, he vowed to tell the truth of his humiliation, although he anticipated the resistance. “And someone up in the higher echelons of journalism, some moron starts talking about balanced coverage,” he said.

The other person who spoke the truth was the brilliant former executive editor of the Times, A.M. Rosenthal, who by 1991 had become a columnist for the paper. Rosenthal was one of the first journalists at the Times to call the riots what they were. “Pogrom in Brooklyn,” was the headline of his column on Sept. 3, 1991, just two weeks after the riots ended.

“The press,” Rosenthal wrote, “treats it all as some kind of cultural clash between a poverty-ridden people fed up with life and a powerful, prosperous and unfortunately peculiar bunch of stuck-up neighbors — very sad of course, but certainly understandable. No — it is an anti-Semitic pogrom and the words should not be left unsaid.”

It pains me to recall that not many people at the Times took Rosenthal seriously at the time. He had gone from being the editor of a great “liberal” newspaper to being a “conservative” columnist who seemed to return to the same issues over and over again: the security of Israel, anti-Semitism, the persecution of Christians in China and the war on drugs.

But Rosenthal was right about Crown Heights. In 1993, two years after the Crown Heights riots, an exhaustive state investigation sharply criticized Mayor Dinkins for not understanding the severity of the crisis. It also faulted his police commissioner, Lee Brown, for mismanaging the police during the riots.

The critical state report was widely covered in the press. “For the Mayor,” the Times headline said, “A Harsh Light.”

But another report, this one on how the press covered Crown Heights, got little publicity. It was written in 1999 by Carol B. Conaway, then an assistant professor at the College of Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., and published in an academic journal called Polity. Her article is called “Crown Heights: Politics and Press Coverage of the Race War That Wasn’t.”

“Journalists and their audience alike rely on ‘frames’ when writing about and understanding newsworthy events because they provide cues for understanding others’ experiences,” Conaway wrote. But, she added, sometimes the frames are wrong.

She continued: “The New York Post, a tabloid, shifted away from the race frame to focus on black anti-Semitism within a few days of the initial rampages, while the New York Times persisted with the racial frame for at least two years.

“Yet,” she added, “one cannot understand the events [that unfolded in Crown Heights] without getting beyond the binaries of black versus white encouraged by the use of the race frame, and understanding the more complex dynamics of the conflict.”

As someone who saw the conflict unfold I can attest to this first-hand. I am telling my story in print for the first time because it is important that we journalists examine our mistakes and learn from them. Fitting stories into frames — whether about blacks and Jews, liberals or conservatives, Arabs and Israelis, Catholics and Protestants or Muslims and Jews — is wrong and even dangerous. Life is more complicated than that. And so is journalism.

Susan Hayward, Bill Williams, and “enough suspects to fill a baseball team”: Watch This Morning’s TCM Film Noir (10 a.m.!) Hosted by Eddie Muller, Deadline at Dawn



By David in TN
Friday, July 21, 2017 at 3:34:00 P.M. EDT


The TCM Film Noir for Sunday, July 23, is Deadline at Dawn (1946), showing at 10 a.m. ET. This is a murder mystery on the dark streets of New York (filmed on studio back lots).


Bill Williams plays a sailor who thinks he may have killed a woman while drunk. In a typical role for her, Susan Hayward plays a taxi dancer who helps him. In a standard noir trope, Williams is an amnesiac veteran.


Our host Eddie Muller says this film has enough suspects to fill a baseball team. Just a few are the dead woman's gangster brother (Joseph Calleia); a philosophical cab driver (Paul Lukas); her blind ex-husband (Marvin Miller); and a young wife (Osa Massen).


This one is a favorite of mine, though not too realistic.




If You're a Black Serial Rapist, You Have Friends at WPIX News!

By Nicholas Stix

For women in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, life is even more dangerous than usual, what with a black serial rapist on the loose, who has so far raped or attempted to rape four females. (According to the story, one victim fought him off with mace.) For the rapist, however, things are peachy keen, because he has supporters at WPIX News (Channel 11), and probably at other MSM outfits.

The local news broadcast, which followed the Mets’ game tonight, led off with a story about the rapist by black reporter Myles Miller. So far, so good. (When blacks are crime victims, black reporters must cover the story; when blacks are perps, black reporters must cover the story—‘heads we win, tails you lose.’)

But the report refused to give a proper description of the perp, even though he was clearly caught on video by a closed circuit TV system, from a local store.

Members of the Society for the Protection and Encouragement of Colored Criminals (SPECC) will counter, ‘But you could see that he was black from the video.’

So, what? When a white man is a serial rapist, the media give a complete description, in addition to the video. When a white cop kills a black, the MSM constantly emphasize the respective races of the shooter and the shot, and prejudice the case by referring the deceased as “the victim,” which is false. The MSM seek thereby to help railroad the white cop.

Legally speaking, only if the cop is convicted of killing the decedent is the latter a “victim.” Even then, that is not necessarily the case, such as in the Walter Scott-Michael Slager case. Otherwise, the cop (or cop-surrogate) is often the victim. (E.g., George Zimmerman and Officer Darren Wilson were the victims of racist, black, would-be murderers Trayvon Zimmerman and Mike Brown, respectively.)

Besides which, what if you were only listening, when the description was broadcast? (MSM radio news outlets are typically just as bad.)

As far as I heard, the description WPIX News news reader Kaity Tong broadcast of the black Crown Heights rapist was merely that he was 6’2.”

WPIX News went beyond being “passive” accomplices, to being active accomplices. The perp was wearing a colored t-shirt with a great deal of text. In one video, he was walking topless, with his underwear pulled way above his shorts (like most black New York males under the age of 40), and his bunched up t-shirt in his hands. In another video, however, he had his t-shirt on. The shirt was black or dark, with an extensive white or yellow statement. WPIX News deliberately scrambled the words, so that they were completely blurred.

Tong gave no explanation for the blurring, e.g., that the words were expletives. Since WPIX News, like all MSM operations, is a SPECC member in good standing, and followed SPECC’s practice of withholding the perp’s most important descriptive characteristic, I’m going to take a wild shot, and say it blurred the shirt’s text, in order to aid and abet the black serial rapist.

Oddly enough, Tong read aloud that the black serial rapist is believed to live in Westchester. That would require that police had given the station quite a bit of additional information, but no explanation is given.

Let’s review the information.

According to WPIX News, the perp is:

• 6’2”; and
• May live in Westchester.

According to the videotape, the perp is:

• A man, app. 22-35 years of age;
• Black;
• App. 6’2”;
• App. 200 lbs.; and
• Has a full head of hair.

According to his four known vics, the perp is:

• 6’2”;
• App. 200 lbs.;
• Has a full head of hair;
• May have all sorts of identifying marks (if any of them got a good look);
• Has a distinctive speech pattern (they all would have heard him speak); and
• May live in Westchester.

Well, he’s only raped four three females so far, and better that a million black rapists go free, than that one innocent one be falsely charged, right? Because slavery. Because Jim Crow. Because the Racial Profiling Hoax. Because the Duke Lacrosse “Scandal.” Because, because, because.

Democrats were Against Open Borders, Until They were for Them



Democrats used to care about limiting immigration before they embraced open borders
By jonette christian
July 19, 2017, at 8:41 a.m.
Bangor Daily News

Poverty, unemployment and the environment used to be top priorities for Democrats. We depended upon Democrats to protect workers from unfair labor practices and minimize wealth disparities. Recognizing the impact of immigration numbers on all these goals, Democratic leadership once called for strict enforcement and meaningful reductions.

Here are several prominent examples:

President Bill Clinton said during his 1995 State of the Union address: “All Americans … are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on taxpayers. That’s why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders … cracking down on illegal hiring, [and] by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens.”

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid wrote in a 1995 Los Angeles Times column touting his bill to double border patrol, accelerate deportation and slash legal immigration: “Taxpayers simply cannot continue to sustain new populations the size of San Diego or the state of Nevada every year.”

Barbara Jordan, a former U.S. representative, civil rights icon, and chair of Clinton’s U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, said during 1994 testimony before Congress: “As a nation of immigrants committed to the rule of law, this country must set limits on who can enter and back up these limits with effective enforcement of our immigration law. … As far as immigration policy is concerned, credibility can be measured by a simple yardstick: people who should get in, get in; people who should not enter are kept out; and people who are deportable should be required to leave.”

Robert Reich, who served as secretary of labor under Clinton, said in a 2004 article: “The only reason any job remains unfilled is because the wage is too low. Require it to be filled with an American and employers have to raise the wage. But if they can get legal guest workers, they won’t.”

Paul Krugman, a Nobel laureate, economist and New York Times columnist, wrote in a 2006 column: “It is intellectually dishonest to say, as President Bush does, that ‘immigrants do jobs Americans won’t do.’ The willingness of Americans to do a job depends on how much that job pays, and the reason some jobs pay too little to attract Americans is competition from poorly paid immigrants.”

Krugman wrote in a 2010 blog post: “Open immigration can’t coexist with a strong social safety net; if you’re going to assure health care and a decent income to everyone, you can’t make that offer global.”

Gaylord Nelson, a former U.S. senator and founder of Earth Day, said in a 2001 interview: “It’s phony to say, ‘I’m for the environment, but not for limiting immigration.’”

The New York Times wrote in a 2000 editorial: “The primary problem with amnesties is that they beget more illegal immigration.”

Congress has created multiple blue ribbon commissions of experts to study immigration and refugee policy, wisely removing this hugely contentious issue from the political arena where powerful lobbies have driven legislation and political narrative: President Clinton’s U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, the U.S. Commission on Agriculture, the Select Commission on Immigration and Refugee Policy — to name a few. All of these commissions offered the same recommendations: reduce legal immigration, enforce immigration laws, and beware of the unintended consequences of guest worker programs.

Over the last two decades, Democrats largely ignored the experts they chose to consult.

Instead, they did a U-turn on immigration, embracing the open borders, multiple amnesties, free trade, global agenda of billionaire donors. Democrats simply aren’t the same party they used to be.

A friendly press has provided cover for years by avoiding uncomfortable data about immigration, regarding labor impacts, taxpayer costs. Instead, the public was given a steady diet of happy-talk personal stories, shallow slogans and unsubstantiated claims from self-interested players who profit from the new agenda. And virtually no coverage of congressional commissions and the betrayal of American workers.

Donald Trump’s win is a wake up call. Will Democrats recommit to their traditional priorities and a truly inclusive platform? Right now, the pleasure of feeling morally superior to Trump is intoxicating. Let’s hope they can get beyond it.

Bob Whitaker, Author of the Racist “Mantra” on White Genocide, Has Died
June 07, 2017
By Ryan Lenz

Bob Whitaker, a curmudgeonly segregationist who penned a 221-word racist “Mantra” that became a rallying cry for racists the world over, has died.

Bob Whitaker

Whitaker, 76, died in his sleep on Saturday, his website announced yesterday.

“His passing is going to leave a hole in so many people’s life [sic]. But he has given the world the tools we need to expose this anti-White system and it’s [sic] program of white genocide. We will keep on using what he has taught us,” the announcement on Whitaker’s website read.

Whitaker’s fame on the radical right stems almost exclusively from his “Mantra,” a blunt attack on multiculturalism that blames immigration for a “genocide” facing white people. Such a notion has inspired racists to hang the final words of the mantra –– “Anti-racist is code word for anti-white” –– from Interstate overpasses and has even motivated some to commit heinous acts of violence, including the 2011 terrorist attacks in Norway that left 77 people dead.

But in life, Whitaker claimed to have been much more than a racist writer and managed to build a vocal and devout following. To his disciples, in fact, Whitaker was nothing short of a propaganda “genius,” a word that could be found more than 600 times on his blog.

“There is not a modest bone in my body,” Whitaker wrote in 2004. “I AM a genius. I was born with one hell of a brain, and I scare our enemies because I am so smart I can laugh them to shame. I am at so high a level that a PhD or a big-time news anchor doesn’t mean a thing to me.”

A far-right propagandist for more than a half-century, the former economics professor and Reagan appointee to the Office of Personnel Management was linked to radical, often racist, populist campaigns for most of his career. He once claimed to have had a swastika poster on his wall when he was young to protest desegregation. In fact, his advocacy of segregation and racist ideology seems rooted in his opposition to America’s early civil rights struggles.

According to Whitaker’s followers, he’s a former clandestine CIA agent and mercenary in Rhodesia who helped craft the propaganda message that ended the Soviet Union — claims for which there is no known historical record.

The Mantra first appeared in 2006 on Whitaker’s blog and on the internet forum for National Vanguard, a breakaway group from the neo-Nazi National Alliance. Unlike David Lane’s succinct “14 words” (We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children), the Mantra reads like a rambling tirade on U.S. immigration policy.

All the same, his many followers quickly voiced their sorrow with word of his passing on racist Internet forums such as Stormfront.

“Perhaps his most important, and most lasting, legacy is that his incessant promotion of the term ‘anti-white’ is now slowly but surely going mainstream,” a commentator using the name “Bellatrix” said on Stormfront. “A very important corner to turn indeed, as it is the rebuttal of the accusation of racist."

In recent years, Whitaker attempted to ride the fame that found him late in life toward political fortune. In 2015, he joined the American Freedom Party (AFP) ticket as the party’s candidate for vice president. “I’m running for vice president because I know a lot about vice,” Whitaker said in an audio interview about his candidacy posted online.

While his candidacy excited the radical right, it paled in comparison to then candidate Donald Trump’s electoral efforts. In April, Whitaker resigned from the ticket after conflict erupted over William Johnson, AFP’s chairman, and his efforts to aid the Trump campaign rather than support his own party’s candidate.

Johnson spent thousands to generate robocalls ahead of state primaries across the United States that supported Trump, not his own party’s candidate, Whitaker.

Afternoon update.

I wanted go at the noon hour, but work pushed it back until after 2 o’clock.

– The bad news is that he doesn’t recognize me

– The good news is that he expressed that he doesn’t recognize me by saying no, though it wasn’t very loud, and shaking is head

– The better news is that the nurses told me that his mother and uncle were in to visit a few hours ago, and he did recognize them with both words and facial expressions. That would seem to make sense because he’s known them all his life but me for only 6 years. I guess it makes sense that if you lose memories, the ones you’ll get back first are the ones that are implanted the deepest.

– The nurses are also telling me that he asked for water, even though he can’t drink it out of a cup yet, it has to be given through one of those dentist type power straws.

I’ll make another visit this evening.

Communist New York City Mayor Bill de Blah, Blah, Blah: No Normal Whites Need Apply for Cultural Jobs

By An Anonymous Reader

NYToday: “De Blasio, With ‘Cultural Plan,’ Proposes Linking Money to Diversity”

If you're interesting in any type of job in the “arts” in NYC - even just as a back-office staffer - but are guilty of being white, you might as well pack your bags: you'll never be employed in this city again.

“Asked to explain the city’s new, tougher stance on diversity, Mr. Finkelpearl said in an email on Wednesday: ‘Today’s announcement requiring diversity reporting from city-funded groups is the next step, building on everything we’ve learned to date to work toward a cultural sector that is fairer, more equitable and looks like the city it serves.”

Murder in Minneapolis? City’s First Somali Muslim Police Officer Shoots and Kills White Australian Woman

By An Anonymous Reader

Took some time for the East Coast news outlets to reveal the cop's name, then his ethnic identity, then the fact that he was “famous” and “lauded” for being the “first Somali (Muslim) police officer on the Minneapolis force.”

Another AA hire whose likely most important qualification for admission to the force was his skin color: not his intelligence, judgement, and fitness for police work.

In the same way that the physical fitness requirements heretofore in place for DECADES for anyone hoping to make it as a fireman in this nation were (and continue to be) progressively “softened,” so that overweight, overage, out-of-shape black, Latino and Asian lesbians can achieve their dream, the exact same thing has obviously happened in police forces everywhere.

It'll take a bit for the full story here to be revealed - as there are almost certainly forces being arrayed to help this guy dodge any culpability for this crime - but “the truth will out,” as it almost always does.

Who's to say that with the uniform cameras of both officers turned off for some reason, that this wasn't an ideal, opportune time for Mohamed to perhaps follow this religion's dictates and “settle some scores”?

How Delta Airlines Wrecked American Health Care

By Ann Coulter
July 19, 2017

I think I've found the core problem with health care in America. And guess what? It involves Delta Airlines!

A few weeks ago, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was going on and on about a "single insurance provider" that pays for 49 percent of all births, as well as full health care costs of almost 40 percent of all children in the United States. This single "insurer," Maddow said, was the biggest "health insurance provider in the country by a mile."

Maddow was talking about Medicaid, which, of course, is not "insurance" but "welfare."

When we're allowed to call things whatever we want in order to win an argument, there is a total breakdown in democratic politics, fair commerce and social interaction.

Thus, for example, until we get our terms straight, Americans will be forced to keep paying through the nose whenever they try to buy actual health insurance -- because they aren't buying health insurance; they're paying for other people's welfare. Washington will never be able to make it legal to sell real health insurance -- because, if they try, the welfare recipients will mob congressional offices claiming that Republicans are murdering them.

There is no truth in any discussion of Obamacare. Currently, the most persistent lie is the claim that -- according to scoring by the CBO! -- 22 million Americans would "lose" their health insurance under the Senate health care bill. Turn on the TV right now and you'll hear someone saying this.

"A new (CBO) budget score said 22 million more Americans would lose health coverage under this plan ..."

-- Poppy Harlow, CNN, June 27, 2017

"A score from the Congressional Budget Office ... said the Republican bill to kill Obamacare would kick 22 million Americans off their health insurance."

-- Rachel Maddow, June 27, 2017

"The clock is ticking on the Senate health care bill as the CBO estimates 22 million people will lose their insurance."

-- Chris Hayes, June 26, 2017


The actual CBO report says nothing of the sort. People citing the "22 million" figure didn't read past the CBO's headline-grabbing paragraph at the top of the "Summary" page.

In fact, the CBO merely estimates that -- in the year 2026 -- 22 million Americans who otherwise would have been forced by the Obamacare penalty to buy health insurance will choose not to buy insurance once the penalty is gone. By "people thrown off their health insurance," liberals mean: "people who voluntarily decide not to have health insurance." (More accurately, "people who choose not to prove to the government that they have health insurance.")

To use the word "lose" here is absurd. It would be like saying that Nixon ending the draft meant that 50,000 American men would "lose" their military service. The poor lads would be forced to volunteer.

Last year, I chose to end my New York Times subscription. I wasn't "thrown off" the Times' subscriber list. In full possession of the facts, I made an informed decision that I no longer wanted to receive the Times -- just as 22 million Americans (the CBO guesses) will make an informed decision in the year 2026 not to have health insurance, if given that option.

Redefining words like "insurance" and "lose" to mean whatever the speaker wants them to mean makes human conversation impossible. We can still grunt, howl and shiver when it's cold, but we will no longer have the ability to communicate slightly more complex thoughts to one another.

The only solution is for the rest of us to impose a broken windows policy on the truth, demanding it in every walk of life. If liars continually get away with it, their lies will only become more preposterous and more enraging.

Illegal aliens are not "undocumented immigrants." They're not "immigrants" at all. Immigrants wait in line and jump through hoops to be here. They are invited, by us, to come. Illegals cut to the head of the line whenever the mood strikes them, without waiting for an invitation.

When you have a "reserved seat" on Delta, it means you expect to be given that seat and not have your ticket snatched from your hand, then moved to a worse seat -- only to get abused on social media by an imperious corporation for talking about it on Twitter.

(Idea for new Delta motto: "If you like your seat, you can keep your seat!")

This is why the "Seinfeld" exchange with a car rental company struck such a chord. It was about the infuriating result when words like "reservation" have no meaning:

Jerry: I don't understand. I made a reservation. Do you have my reservation?

Rental car agent: Yes, we do. Unfortunately, we ran out of cars.

Jerry: But the reservation keeps the car here. That's why you have the reservation.

Rental car agent: I know why we have reservations.

Jerry: I don't think you do. If you did, I'd have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to hold the reservation. And that's really the most important part of the reservation: the holding. Anybody can just take them.

If we're going to have any kind of civil society, we need to insist that words mean what they say.

"Health insurance": A group of people pooling their money every month, in the event that one of them ends up with an expensive medical problem.

"Wall": Wall.

"Republican": Does not raise taxes, propose amnesty or appoint David Hackett Souter to the Supreme Court.

"Seat 3A": The seat you were promised.

Unless the rest of us demand truth, the liars will be emboldened, their lies will snowball and nothing will ever work.

In Michigan, a Six-Month-Old Infant is Murdered; His 22-Year-Old Mother Has been Charged with Felony Murder and First-Degree Child Abuse; Both Parents were Already Convicted Criminals


Lovily Johnson and one of her children

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 5:15:00 P.M. EDT

In the spirit of the ever descending level of lawfulness in the Grand Rapids area—thanks entirely to the increase in its lowlife black population—a six-month-old baby was killed by his black mother yesterday. She was arrested shortly after trying to drop the already dead baby off at a local hospital, “for treatment.”

I'll post the story shortly, but the mom—22-year-old, Lovily Johnson, has been charged with murder.

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — A 22-year-old Wyoming woman is in the Kent County jail in connection to the suspicious death of her child, police say. [Wyoming is 5.5 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.]

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety said it was advised the woman had taken her 6-month-old boy to the emergency room at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. The infant was dead on arrival, according to police.

Police believe the infant died in the 2600 block of McKee Avenue SW. His mother was arrested late Wednesday night, officers said.

Authorities have charged Lovily Johnson for counts of felony murder and first degree child abuse. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

A court date for arraignment has not been set. [Prosecutor IDs Wyoming mom charged in death of baby boy, by Barton Deiters and 24 Hour News 8 web staff, WOOD.TV, July 20, 2017, 12:04 p.m.; updated: July 20, 2017, 6:05 p.m.]

Schools On Hook For Each Other

Created by Congress in 1992, the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program encouraged the colleges to participate "as a coalition, as a collective, being willing to help other institutions," said Brian Johnson, who until last month was president of Tuskegee University.

The federal government has lent out nearly $2 billion over the past two decades to help dozens of historically black colleges and universities upgrade their campuses or refinance debt.

But only a fraction of the money has been repaid, oversight is limited and the lifeline promised to the schools, which have played a key role in educating African-Americans since the Civil War, has become more of an albatross for some.

Officials at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Ala., are lobbying the Education Department to have their $40 million loan modified or forgiven, arguing that the funds it got through the Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program in 2012 were secured with overly optimistic enrollment projections. Barber-Scotia College in Concord, N.C., defaulted on its loan in 2005 after it lost its accreditation.

[If officials at Stillman College are telling the truth now, it would mean that they and/or their predecessors committed massive fraud in 2012, and should be prosecuted and imprisoned. Forensic accounting must also determine whether any of them embezzled some or all of the money.]

And four schools ravaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which in 2007 took out a combined $361 million in loans capped at 1% interest over 30 years, have paid back just roughly $12.4 million of it in the past decade and were granted a five-year forbearance period in 2013 when enrollment didn't rebound quickly.

"We've got to have much stricter underwriting requirements" to ensure that schools can handle the new debt, said Johnny C. Taylor Jr., president and chief executive of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which represents publicly supported HBCUs, and a member of the loan program's federal advisory board.

The program has long faced high delinquency rates.

The Education Department's fiscal 2017 budget request shows that the program had a target delinquency rate of 14%. Its actual delinquency rate-reflecting payments that were between 11 and 59 days late -- was 19% in fiscal 2012, and 36% in fiscal 2013. The budget paper doesn't include more recent figures for that performance metric.

Donald Watson, director of the federal loan program for 10 years, said at a May 2015 advisory board meeting that there were schools on his "watch list" because of concerns about impending financial trouble, and others that he described as "habitual late payers." The board hasn't met since then.
"A lot of this has been left without the oversight that we've needed," said Rep. Alma Adams (D., N.C.), who co-sponsored a bill this year requiring more reporting by the board and allowing the Education Department to provide financial counseling to schools that don't meet the loan program's requirements. "The schools that participate should be constantly assessed to determine whether they're on track for repayment."

Stillman hadn't been making regular payments for at least a year and a half before President Cynthia Warrick took the helm on an interim basis in January.

Stillman used its loan funds in part to refinance a loan that was used to build a new football stadium; it gave up the sport in late 2015, eliminating ticket-sales revenue that could have helped cover debt payments.

A fundraising appeal this spring allowed Stillman to make its April loan payment, but Dr. Warrick said it would need to increase enrollment to at least 800, from its current 570, to afford another installment.

Dr. Warrick said she has been in regular contact with Education Department officials and is hopeful that the repayment plan will be adjusted.

"It's in the nation's best interest to either give us a deferral or, if they evaluate the entire program and all of these schools and what we do for the nation, that we should get a bailout just like the automobile industry and the banking industry," she said.

[“What we do for the nation”? They do nothing but suck money out of the pockets of hard-working, white taxpayers.]

Education Department spokeswoman Liz Hill said the department doesn't go into details about specific schools' finances, but noted that penalties are laid out in loan agreements and failure to repay can affect schools' accreditation and ability to borrow in the future. Ms. Hill said schools "must be creditworthy to access this program," and not every school that applies is approved.

Morehouse College and Texas Southern University were rated as investment-grade by Moody's Investors Service at the time they got loans, but others were speculative bets.

"The federal government needs to be a little more particular in their lending," said Marybeth Gasman, professor of higher education and director of the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania. "You should not be able to borrow anything unless you have a plan to pay it back.
