ICE Now Has A Detainer For The Guy Who Ran Down All Those Motorcyclists
[Hot Air] There seems to be some confusion over Volodymyr Zhukovskyy’s status in some of the articles I’ve read. Technically, he’s in the country legally and allowed to work here. But as Howie Carr recently noted in the Boston Herald, this condition is the result of a series of mistakes on our part. When an immigrant is in the United States on a work visa, tourist visa, student visa or what have you, they are expected to be on their best behavior if they would like to stay. When they begin breaking the law, it’s time for their legal resident status to be canceled and for them to go home.

Zhukovskyy had already broken the law multiple times, and we’re not just talking about failures to register his vehicle or get the proper license. He was in trouble for larceny, cocaine, heroin and driving while intoxicated. He’d already received far more passes than he could reasonably expect. And this, as Carr notes, is a case of, "defining deviancy down, this policy of looking the other way when it comes to bad behavior until what used to be unacceptable is normalized."

As I noted at the top, if someone had suspended Zhukovskyy’s license or investigated the trucking company he worked for, that may or may not have prevented the tragedy we witnessed. But do you know what definitely would have ensured he didn’t plow into all those bikers? Sending him back to his home country before he had the chance to do it.

Naps Make You Smarter, Nicer
[Hot Air] Finally, a scientific explanation for how some of us of a certain age have gotten so much smarter than others over the years.

Some wise cultures around the world with high noontime temperatures have midday breaks for a whole hour or two called siestas, which is Spanish for "four commutes a day."

When many Americans were younger, naps were punishment or an enforced rest to allow a presiding adult to grab some ZZZ’s too. Decades later, naps have become like delightful little vacations.

Now, it turns out, naps are not only restorative, especially if you haven’t slept well at night. But they also improve mood (check), physical performance (meh), even the ability to learn (check) and enhanced memory (can’t remember).

This all sounds so good that it might not be totally true. But we’re going with select health literature that says it is.

The Truth about Reparations
[American Thinker] The genesis of the Democratic Party’s current infatuation with the idea of reparations for slavery and Jim Crow can largely be traced to an article in the Atlantic from 2014 by Ta’Nehisi Coates’ "The Case for Reparations." Make no mistake, the "Case for Reparations" is not about money, it is about "moral reckoning" and remaking the United States.

Like most things Coates writes, few people who cite his work appear to have actually read it. In 2014 Coates was the enfant terrible of the left, now replaced by another even less impressive pseudo-intellection who goes by the moniker "AOC."

But for a certain and relatively large subset of liberals (and particularly white liberals) Coates is the touchstone to most things black. That is, if Coates if for it they are, and more so, if Coates wrote it, or said it, it must be morally justified. It pretty much goes without saying that within this liberal subset are pretty all the Democratic presidential candidates.

Reparations are not about money. They are about a day of judgment for the United States that will restore justice to African-Americans by eradicating "white supremacy."

The immediate means would be through H.R. 40 a House bill that’s been pending for decades. On June 19th the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing on H.R. 40 -- star witness Ta’Nehisi Coates, along with actor Danny Glover and other worthies. The stated purpose of H.R. 40 is to establish a Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. As the hearing continued into this week, President Trump weighed in on Tuesday saying "I don’t see it happening." Of course, that’s likely only to encourage the movement.

#1  If you're curious about where this is all headed:

Welcome to the official Truth and Reconciliation Commission Website

The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was set up by the Government of National Unity to help deal with what happened under apartheid. The conflict during this period resulted in violence and human rights abuses from all sides. No section of society escaped these abuses. The TRC was based on the Promotion of National Unity and Reconciliation Act, No 34 of 1995 (pdf)

"... a commission is a necessary exercise to enable South Africans to come to terms with their past on a morally accepted basis and to advance the cause of reconciliation."

Translation: A necessary exercise until all of your stuff becomes our stuff.

Mr Dullah Omar, former Minister of Justice
The TRC effected its mandate through 3 committees: the Amnesty Committee, Reparation and Rehabilitation (R&R) Committee and Human Rights Violations (HRV) Committee....more

#2  "To save what is dear to us from being trampled by the ravager, we must sometimes descend to moral depths we cannot expect from normal men."
- Ancient kshatriya proverb

There is no civil way to defend yourself from this. The Jim Crowe laws were based on the premise that the same access to employment, education and franchise as applicable to Americans, must not be shared by expatriated African slaves and their offspring. History itself teaches us that any oppressed class, if given the opportunity will retaliate with maximum ferocity and seek to displace/slaughter/enslave the other. It has not evolved to understand and value the centuries of civilization that have gone by under the administration and efforts of the original civilizing class. Therefore it shall also seek to destroy every edifice and every symbol of the original.

It is very simple really. Survival. If the whites are to survive, they've got to start playing dirty. It doesn't matter who enslaved whom, or what was done to their forefathers. All that matters is, your children are being obliged to lay their heads down at guillotines for it.

If Americans truly value their future, they will fight for it. With things like a white antifa(do call it something else), million-strong protests, educating the fringe white communities so they don't end up embarrassments always, coordinating a nationwide campaign against black power, guerilla activities against gangs and enforcers, - sacrifices are inescapable, but once it is in motion, caucasian peoples the world over would join it. Also, everybody else who has witnessed the reality of the inherently regressive African race.

Anything less, and we are witnessing the first lazy whorls of a downward spiral that will lead to the ravaging of the greatest nation on earth.

#3  "Restoring justice by eradicating white supremacy?"

More hogwash or ontological goo from the left. Why should we accept that this statement is true? Assuming there is some (dubious) truth; what should it be replaced with: egalitarianism, black supremacy or Islamicist supremacy? That has not worked out well for the world.

How are things in South Africa these days? They traded white apartheid for black apartheid.

#5  History itself teaches us that any oppressed class, if given the opportunity will retaliate with maximum ferocity and seek to displace/slaughter/enslave the other.

That is the general history, yes. But as a Jew I come from a class oppressed in both Christendom and the Ummah, yet we are not known for displacing/slaughtering/enslaving our former oppressors after being granted full citizenship. Likewise, no rumour of such behaviour has reached the ken of man regarding those who separated from the African-American community over the past half dozen or so generations to pass as white.

In fact, the examples of both revolutionary France and — shortly thereafter —Haiti show that the behaviour is not racial but cultural. That the white underclass of Britain, whose degradation has been so thoroughly documented by Theodore Dalrymple, has not equally brutally overthrown its masters is another nail in the coffin of the inevitability of this particular teaching of History.

This demand for reparations is the product of a small group within the Democratic party, and is in fact nothing more than perennial political grandstanding. Even if a bill on the subject were to pass in the House, where it has been pending for decades under presidents Democratic as well as Republican, it would not pass in the Republican Senate, and hasn’t a hope in hell of being signed by President Trump.

In other words, the defence against this kabuki will be entirely civil.

#6  The REAL TRUTH about reparations is that whites deserve more than the blacks. Slavery and Jim Crow were devised to keep poor Southern Whites in line.

There is a reason the South consistently lagged behind the North in economic development. The South was the last region in the US to eliminate diseases like anthrax. It was the last region to have rural electricity and indoor plumbing.

LBJ worked long and hard to dismantle Jim Crow - not because it hurt Blacks but because it hurt Southern Whites worse.

Why is Iran taking such an interest in Iraq’s air defenses?
[Rudaw] Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
has once again reiterated its proposal to help Iraq build-up its air defense system against unspecified threats facing both countries.

On June 23, Brigadier-General Alireza Sabahi Fard, commander of the Iranian Army’s Khatam al-Anibya air defense base, repeated Iran’s desire to help Iraq develop its air defense systems following a meeting with Tariq Abbas Ibrahim Abdul Hussein, the Iraqi army’s deputy commander.

The fatal flaw in the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan
Lemme guess? It has Paleostinians in it?
[The Hill] The Trump administration has just rolled out the economic part of its new Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. It will facilitate some $50 billion in socioeconomic development, with over $27 billion going to Gaza and the West Bank. The balance will go to Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon.

The plan is nation-building on steroids. It would fund everything from roads, power, water, ICT and border infrastructure, to governance, to health and education, to regional economic integration. It's big, it's bold and it's comprehensive. There's just one problem. As we've learned repeatedly since World War II, development doesn't buy peace in ethnic and religious wars.

Hateful tribal cultures don't act in their best interests.
Smite them until they disintegrate or learn
They were given the opportunity with a big bribe. If they choose to spit on it, then President Trump needn't try ever again.

Olde Tyme Religion
CA Legislators Blame Religious People For High LGBT Suicide Rates
[The Federalist] Legislators in California have discovered yet another way to make it clear that mainstream religions holding to the sexual teachings of their sacred texts have no business doing so in the Golden State. Why? Because these faiths, which billions of good people worldwide happily hold, do not embrace homosexuality. This includes the three largest: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.

In a resolution that recently passed the state assembly, "the Legislature calls upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits of family and community acceptance" of LGBT people. It singles out especially faith-motivated individuals and organizations.

These legislators make a very ugly accusation against such people. California lawmakers are planning to spread the idea, with the power and moral authority of the state, that such religious beliefs actually kill people, including children. The text of this bill boldly states:

WHEREAS, The stigma associated with being LGBT often created by groups in society, including therapists and religious groups, has caused disproportionately high rates of suicide, attempted suicide, depression, rejection, and isolation amongst LGBT and questioning individuals...

Note the absoluteness of their conclusions, particularly two words: create and cause. Stigma, created by religious groups, causes high rates of suicide.

Obituaries For The Recently Canceled
[McSweeneysInternetTendency] Matthew Edwards, 41, was canceled early Friday evening after he was seen in his car singing along to “Remix to Ignition.” Mr. Edwards has not watched the R. Kelly documentary, but colleagues say he was aware of its existence and general content. He leaves behind his intersectional feminist wife Julia and two woke children.

Following a long battle in defense of a controversial Facebook post, Meredith Van Dorn, 20, finally succumbed to cancellation at her home on Thursday night. Ms. Van Dorn was surrounded by friends and loved ones who, upon her cancellation, insisted they always had kind of a weird feeling about her, actually. Ms. Van Dorn’s parents, Peter and Linda, would like their daughter to be remembered for her sweet smile and love of dancing, rather than her provocative feelings about Japanese toilets.

Nicholas and Louisa Solinas, 47 and 29 respectively, were newlyweds honeymooning in Mykonos when they were canceled for a tasteless Instagram caption. Mr. Solinas worked in private equity; Mrs. Solinas was an interior designer/model/DJ. Family members, though heartbroken, acknowledge it is miraculous that the couple had not been canceled sooner.

Margaret Arnold has been canceled at the age of 22 for a leaked 2017 email in which she expressed regret that La La Land did not win the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Simon Mulchfield, 27, was a rising journalist at The Atlantic. On Saturday he canceled himself at his parents’ Westchester home, after re-reading an essay he wrote in his freshman year of college about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Mr. Mulchfield leaves behind his uncanceled fiancé, Shayna Al-Ahmadi, who is fluent in both Hebrew and Arabic and whose undergraduate essays have been read before Congress. Ms. Al-Ahmadi remains grateful for their time together and notes that if Mr. Mulchfield had not canceled himself, she absolutely would have done so.

After many close brushes with cancellation, Jeremy Warble, a 30-year-old bartender and drummer, was canceled on Friday after asking exactly zero questions on a Tinder date. Mr. Warble’s earlier, narrowly evaded cancellations include: a culturally appropriative Halloween costume, repeatedly DMing a woman without receiving a response, and a conspicuous silence on social media during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.

Morton Alan Cole, 58, was canceled suddenly on Wednesday morning, to the shock of all who knew him. Mr. Cole, a revered attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union, spent his weekends reading books by Roxane Gay and offering pro-bono legal counsel. The cause of Mr. Cole’s cancellation has been kept private at his family’s request.

On Wednesday, three-day-old Lily Hobbes became the youngest person ever to be canceled, when her father read to her from Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming and she immediately started crying.

Katharine Halloran was a well-liked medical school student at Columbia University with a lifelong passion for snowboarding. Ms. Halloran was canceled in a tragic accident on Thursday, after retweeting an article with a link to a different article by an author who once retweeted a known bigot. She is 24.

Bernard Dubois, a retired physics teacher and WWII veteran, was canceled peacefully in his sleep at the age of 96 while mumbling aloud during a very racist dream. He joins his canceled wife Esther Marie Dubois, 95, who last Thanksgiving expressed a strong opinion about vegans.

Amy Rosenzweig, 28, was canceled Friday for remarking, in a Bushwick coffee shop, that she admires Ivanka Trump’s hair. There will be no memorial service.
