African exodus from the ICC

Writing for the World Politics Review, Julian Hattem writes:

Africa’s long-simmering tensions with the International Criminal Court appear to be boiling over. After years of allegations that the ICC has focused solely on the African continent, while letting abuses in other parts of the world go unpunished, three countries are now preparing to withdraw from the statute authorizing the court. Burundi began the process to leave the court last month, followed in quick succession by South Africa and, last week, Gambia…

To date, all but one of the 10 investigations opened by the court have involved cases in Africa. Every single one of the 39 people indicted by the ICC is African.

The article goes on to explain that there are good reasons for these results:

Defenders of the court have noted that it is only able to investigate cases based on referrals from the United Nations Security Council or within countries that are a party to it. Many of the cases in Africa were opened because leaders there explicitly asked for its intervention…

The ICC has opened preliminary investigations in multiple countries outside of Africa, including Venezuela and South Korea, though it has not handed down charges in those cases. Possible investigations into Syria, North Korea or other countries where human rights violations appear obvious have been impossible because the countries aren’t party to the ICC and have powerful allies with veto powers on the Security Council, namely Russia and China.

Reading this report, one can’t help but be reminded of the racial gap in school discipline in the US – and how Obama has tried to address it. Black students are far more likely to face discipline than are white/Asian students. Since, according to The Narrative, all such disparities must be due to racism by whites, government bean-counters now scrutinize school discipline statistics by race. Teachers, being aware of this, will act accordingly – and, presumably, will discipline white/Asian students more readily than black students.

The result? White students learn that they must be very careful to behave themselves. Meanwhile, black students learn that they can get away with much more*.

And then what happens? Black students become even more unruly, while white/Asian students become even more well-behaved. People notice this, and the result is… (I’ll let you guess).

School discipline and the ICC in Africa. They look very similar to me.


* A couple of days ago, while waiting for a train, I saw a black “yoof” smoking in an area that was clearly marked as a non-smoking area. He was spewing obscenities as he listened to his rap, and spitting. I couldn’t help but think, “if this were a white person, people would have said something to him by now. But as it stands, folks fear wild animals.”

The Nine Genders of PSU

Our local leftist rag, The Willamette Weekly (which I call “The Moth” because its stylized initials on the cover resemble the Hebrew word for “moth”) has reported that Portland State University now recognizes nine genders, and nine sexual orientations:

The expanded options grow out of 2015 legislation that asked all Oregon public universities  to allow students to disclose their sexual orientations so schools could better serve students. But the effort grew to include additional genders…

Here are the choices PSU students now have when disclosing their gender:





Questioning or unsure

Trans man

Trans woman




Funny how “Woman” ended up at the bottom; I guess alphabetical order is sexist. Also, I’m a bit surprised they didn’t include “Trans fat” in the list.

The article continues:

Here are the choices PSU students now have when disclosing their sexual orientation:








Questioning or unsure



I asked a gay friend of mine what “Same-gender-loving” means, and how it’s different from “Gay.” He was as confused about it as I was, but I’ve done a little reading, and apparently “Same-gender-loving” is a specifically black version of “Gay.” Only it’s not that simple. To the question, “What, exactly, is the difference?” it’s hard to get a straight answer (pardon the pun).

I’m also confused about the distinction between “Gay” and “Lesbian.” Aren’t lesbians gay women? It’s all so confusing!

Personally, I think there are as many shades of sexuality, and identity, as there are people. To try to label them all, and define them, is an exercise in futility. At this rate, we’ll have entire books (textbooks, no doubt) explaining the various distinctions and nuances.

Even the above list is far from exhaustive. What about zoophiles, necrophiles, and people who like to have sex with cars or furniture? We need to be inclusive, don’t we?

How does knowing students’ sexual orientation make it easier for schools to serve them? I would imagine most of them are there to earn a degree. Unless the degree is in sexuality, I don’t see how the student’s sexual orientation is relevant.

There should be an additional option for both of the above lists:

None of your business!

Desperate for victimhood

People are so desperate to consider themselves victims that one man’s letter to the editor, criticizing mature women for wearing yoga pants, motivated hundreds of women to participate in a rally for their right to wear yoga pants. Check out this video. Hard to believe, but this is proof that today’s victim insanity extends far beyond the pale of “social justice warriors.”

On another note, I voted today. It was a mail-in ballot, and I was OUTRAGED that the return envelope required postage. Don’t they know that minorities might not be able to afford postage stamps? This is blatant racism. Due to the legacy of slavery and oppression, African Americans are being denied their right to vote!! It’s 2016, and it’s like we haven’t even progressed in the last 150 years. People of color should have their ballots delivered to them on a silver platter, already filled out (lest they get confused and accidentally vote for Trump). Get their signatures, or thumb-prints, and it’s a done deal! (satire off).

A quick thought on Clinton

I don’t claim to be an expert on anything political, but I am a pretty good judge of human nature. Regarding this upcoming election, two dangerous human traits are set to converge: Weak-mindedness and the impulse to compensate.

Over half the population is at, or below, average intelligence. A large portion of those who are of higher intelligence are faithful to the religion of Leftism. While they may question some of the claims put forth by the controlled media, they won’t question its underlying premises, or the corresponding subliminal messages it so aggressively subjects us to. Also, Trump is right that there will be massive voter fraud.

That’s why I’m fairly certain that Hillary Clinton will be elected. She represents the Establishment, and so does the controlled media and a large majority of both major political parties.

One of the things that scares me about her is that, being aware of the perception that women are weak, she’ll compensate for this – to the point of starting WWIII.

Here’s a video by Black Pigeon Speaks:

So we can expect the Federal government to continue to infringe on our right to bear arms, while at the same time increasingly using arms to start wars across the globe. There are a lot of evil things her presidency will bring. We’re in for rough times.

The Butterfly Effect and race

Here’s an interesting video that explains the Butterfly Effect:

In essence, even the tiniest differences will cause large outcome disparities in complex systems. The weather is a prime example; each minute initial condition impacts others, feeds back upon itself – and can end up making the difference between a violent storm and a beautiful, sunny, day.

So it is with large human societies. There are so many variables at work that it’s impossible to point to one, with certainty, and say: This society is poor because of the “legacy of slavery.”

What factors come into play to determine what kind of society a large group of humans will produce?

Local/ethnic history, climate, religion, overall health and diseases, the local flora and fauna, geographical location such as proximity to the coast and the availability of water, terrain, gender ratios – and the genetic legacy of that population. All of these, and probably much more, shape the complex and dynamic entity we know as a “human society.”

Regarding the last item on the above list, “genetic legacy,” it’s what many of us refer to as “race.” It includes external characteristics such as average height, hair texture and color, eye-shape, skin color and ear size. But it also includes the propensity for various health conditions and resistance to others. It includes skeletal structure and bone density, hormone levels, differences in sexual dimorphism and longevity. It also includes differences in overall temperament and IQ. Racial distinctions do not necessarily apply to individuals; they’re a conglomerate of averages across regional populations – and, like so many other things in nature, they don’t need exact boundaries in order to exist. Visit a sandy beach; can you pinpoint the borderline between ocean and land?

The Butterfly Effect is about tiny differences – and no serious scientist would argue that, genetically speaking, human IQ is EXACTLY the same all ever the world. Instead, they argue that other factors explain the bulk of the IQ disparities we now observe. From Scientific American:

So far, the evidence suggests that infectious disease is a primary cause of the global variation in human intelligence. Since this is a developmental cause, rather than a genetic one, it’s good news for anyone who is interested in reducing global inequality associated with IQ. If the primary factors were genetic, as some have suggested, IQ would be very difficult to change.

Will a minuscule difference in average IQ cause tangible differences between human societies? The Butterfly Effect says: Yes!

But, as stated, average IQ is not the only biological difference between races. Hormone levels, or the frequency of psychopathy also vary, and it should be obvious that this will bring about societal differences. Any difference, no matter how small it is, when multiplied millions of times, will have consequences.

Of course there’s a flip side to this. Although many of us like to ridicule the concept of “The Legacy of Slavery,” the Butterfly Effect says differently. Even after 150 years, such a legacy will have an effect upon a large population.

But a large human society, such as American blacks (for example) is so complex that nobody can point to any one factor (such as the Legacy of Slavery, for example) and reasonably claim that it’s the cause of poverty or high crime rates. This would be akin to a weatherman claiming he knows the root cause of a hurricane.

I started with a video from DNews. Interestingly enough, the same fellow, in a different video, claims that race is only a “social construct.” In that video, we can clearly see how otherwise intelligent people lose their objectivity when it comes to race. He calls race “genetic adaptations,” but he also claims that they’re not real. It’s weird to see a scientist make the claim that genetic adaptations aren’t real. Then what are they? Figments of our imagination?

Am I misunderstanding the Butterfly Effect? Let me know in comments.

Idiocy from the Forest Grove News

Even in normal times, I often wonder if members of the controlled media consider the logical conclusions of some of their arguments. But with Trump hysteria in full-swing, it’s even easier to find examples of utter lunacy within the pages of newspapers.

On October 12th of this year, the Forest Grove News-Times published an article by Allen Warren titled “On Immigration issue, consider the long-term impact of a short-term solution.” Here are are some excerpts:

… one of the things we might find out is whether or not President-elect Trump follows through on his campaign promise to deport all illegal immigrants.

… Trump is telling his supporters that immigrants are a threat to their livelihood and even their lives. If we build a wall, if we deport illegal immigrants, if we give the deported immigrant jobs back to U.S. citizens, Trump has often said, “Our economy will be so much better… believe you me!”

… But back to the main theme: the people in our country are part of our domestic market. They rent or buy houses. They buy food, clothes, cars, and thousands of little and big things that get sold or rented every day.

If Trump was successful at deporting 11 million people, we would lose all that demand for goods and services. Even assuming the illegal immigrant incomes are only half that of the average American, those incomes still represent approximately a quarter of a trillion dollars – $275 billion – a year. That’s a pretty significant amount of income lost. In fact, it’s enough that it’d very likely throw the country into a recession.

… but the bottom line is this: if the illegal immigrants aren’t living here, they aren’t shopping here. Trump would no doubt argue the good news is they wouldn’t be here to take jobs in the construction industry; but the potentially bad news he’s not mentioning is they wouldn’t be here to demand housing, and with them gone, it’s conceivable the abandoned homes would be available for U.S. citizens to purchase or rent, meaning if no one would need to build houses for a while, those construction industry jobs previously held by illegal immigrants that are now available for U.S. citizens wouldn’t be needed anymore… or at least for a while as it’s tough to imagine demand for housing being strong in the aftermath of 11 million lost residents.

By this logic, if having 11 million illegal immigrants is “good for the economy,” then why not throw our doors open to the billion or so Africans who would love to move here? Wouldn’t that be even better for the economy? After all, that’s a billion more shoppers, a billion more tax-payers, a billion more customers for the housing industry. Such a move would make Mr. Warren ecstatic.

It appears that Allen Warren would be perfectly happy living in a world where the population density is so great that we’re packed like sardines – as long as the economy is healthy. What about the cost of such a high population/third-world immigration?

Damaged ecosystems? Who cares, as long as the economy is strong!

Setbacks for women’s rights and animal rights? Not important, as long as the stock market is healthy!

Endangered species going extinct? Of little concern, as long as Wall Street is booming!

Increased government corruption and intrusion? A small price to pay, as long as industry is roaring!

Even the most ardent Hillary supporter must (one would think) admit that population growth MUST cease at some point… right?

We’re better off controlling our population on our OWN terms, instead of waiting for the inevitable Malthusian Correction. Controlling our borders is essential to controlling population; it forces local communities to take ownership of their own population problems – rather than offloading them onto others.

Between Clinton and Trump supporters, who is most concerned about our environment? If Warren’s views are any indication, it would be Trump supporters. Clinton supporters only seem to be concerned with the welfare of Wall Street – and considering Clinton’s loyalties, this should come as no surprise.

Is Trump an anti Semite?

A member of my family sent me the following article, by Janis Ian:

I can’t believe people don’t see the parallels. No one thought the National Socialist German Workers Party would “allow” Hitler to do what he did. No one believed that kristallnacht would lead to Auschwitz. Everyone said “the party will stop him”, “the courts will stop him”, “there’s a process in place that will stop him”.
The Republican party’s active encouragement of “tea party” misbehavior, the party’s belief that they could “control” Trump, their turning a blind eye to his continuing egregious behavior, have landed us here.
Despite his disgusting, immoral, unethical, misogynistic behavior, despite his failure after failure as a business person, despite his refusal to give a hoot about the people working for and under him, Republicans like Ryan and Corker went ahead and supported him – first, in the hope that they’d keep their own jobs intact, and second because they made the spurious argument that “I don’t support him. I support the Republican Party.”
Well, what is the Republican Party, or for that matter the Democratic Party? It’s the people IN it. Not the flags, not the banners, not the party hats, but the people.
Now, Ryan finally says he’s had enough. John McCain says he’s finally had enough. Personally, I suspect the only reason most of the politicians deserting Trump are doing so is because their wives have finally had enough. Apparently nothing else mattered enough, or at least, nothing else mattered as much as their own political hides.
I’m no Hillary Clinton fan. If you’d told me a year ago that I would be supporting her, I’d have laughed in your face. But I refuse to vote for a third-party candidate who will do nothing more than deliberately split the vote, and throw this country to the dogs.
I’m not twelve years old any more. I don’t have to like my candidate. I just have to trust that they’ll do their job, behave in a rational manner, treat other world leaders – heck, treat everyone! – with respect, and provide a decent example for my granddaughters. I have to believe that at 3 in the morning, when they’re bored pushing buttons to tweet one last vindictive remark, they won’t push some other buttons and plunge us into a nuclear holocaust.

I have heard people say “I trust in the impeachment process” as an excuse to vote Trump into power, knowing he shouldn’t get within a mile of the White House. I have heard people say “Yeah, he scares me, but I support the Republican Party, and he’s my candidate.” I’ve even heard people say “He’ll put money in my pocket. He knows how to do that” and “He has a secret plan – that’s why he won’t reveal it, because the Democrats would steal it” about everything from health to economics. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. The only secret plan any of these people have is to stay in power. Period.
As to supporting a candidate because you support the party, well, welcome to the National Socialist German Workers Party, folks. A/k/a the Nazis.
Doesn’t anyone read history any more?
Shame on us. Shame on all of us, for standing by and letting this happen. Shame on every single person who doesn’t vote, shame on every single politician who would rather keep their seat than do what’s right, and shame on us for continuing to vote these people into office. Across the board, not Republican or Democrat. Across the board. Shame on us.

I’ll admit that back in the day, I thought Ian was super hot, but comparing Trump to Hitler? Give me a break! Not that this wasn’t predictable. Every time the Establishment Left doesn’t like somebody, they compare him to Hitler. It’s a tired cliché.

I don’t keep up much with the election; personally, I don’t really like either major candidate. But at least Trump isn’t as enthusiastic about eliminating white people as Clinton is, so I’ll vote for him.

I asked my family member to provide me some anti Semitic quotes that Trump has let escape from his (admittedly) loose lips, but she couldn’t provide me with any. So I did a quick search and found an article from It listed five “cringe-worthy” quotes from Trump:

1) Jews are Hagglers “I know why you’re not going to support me. You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money …Look, I’m a negotiator like you folks, we’re negotiators.”

2) One of My Favorite Daughters is Jewish “I want to thank my Jewish daughter. I have a Jewish daughter…This wasn’t in the plan but I’m very glad it happened.”

3) How ‘Bout That Jon Leibowitz — I Mean Stewart “I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz – I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated.”

4) Debbie Wasserman Schultz is “Neurotic” (Read: Jewish Woman) “This is a woman that is a terrible person,” Trump said of Democratic
National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz after calling her “crazy” and a 
“highly neurotic woman.”

5) Not That I’ve Actually Read Hitler… “If I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them.… My friend Marty Davis from Paramount gave me a copy of Mein Kampf, and he’s a Jew.”


None of those can be even remotely considered “anti Semitic” comments. Lame attempts at humor? Perhaps. References to old Jewish stereotypes? Perhaps. I’ve know many Jews, including myself, who are “guilty” of the exact same thing. Yes, Jews do joke about Jewish stereotypes. Yes, Jews do make jokes (sometimes bad ones) at the expense of other Jews.

As for #4, we’ve got to wonder if the term “anti Semitic” has any meaning if it can be applied to any person who says something negative about an individual who happens to be Jewish. That would make just about everybody anti Semitic.

Does reading Mein Kampf make somebody an anti Semite? Well… does reading Das Kapital make somebody a communist? Does reading the Qur’an make somebody a Muslim? How silly!

Until Trump proclaims his hatred of Jews, or calls for our extermination, we should refrain from calling him an anti Semite.
