Why Beijing Loves Biden and Paris

Why Beijing Loves Biden and Paris. By The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board.

The U.S. officially rejoined the Paris climate accord on Friday to much media and European applause. Our guess is that China is the most pleased because it knows the accord will restrict American energy while Beijing gets a decade-long free ride. …

Like Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden is committing the U.S. without submitting the Paris agreement to the Senate as a treaty. …

The economic damage will be real. A 2017 analysis of the Obama Paris commitments, by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Council for Capital Formation, predicted a $250 billion reduction in GDP and some 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025.

Meanwhile, China emitted nearly twice as much CO2 as the U.S. in 2018. Yet under Paris, Beijing gets a pass to increase its emissions until 2030. …

A new report by the nonprofit Global Energy Monitor highlights that “in 2020, China built over three times as much new coal power capacity as all other countries in the world combined — the equivalent of more than one large coal plant per week.” …

Paris will have zero effect on the climate even if every nation meets its commitments. Mr. Biden will dispatch John Kerry, his climate envoy, to lobby China and everyone else to reduce emissions, which will also please President Xi Jinping. Mr. Xi will be happy to make promises about the future while demanding U.S. concessions today on Taiwan, trade and more. The Chinese Communists must sit back and marvel as they watch the U.S. undermine its own economic strength.

It’s hard to believe that so many western leaders were so stupid as to be taken in by the global warming nonsense. Trump wasn’t.

But it’s not really about global warming, is it? There were no Royal Commissions or high-level investigations into the science behind the carbon dioxide theory. No red teams. No public debate (not on the science). Just adjust the data and suppress the skeptics, so certain people can make lots of money and other certain people can gain political power.

The media refuse to publish the evidence that shows the models are decisively wrong.

(In the models, the upper troposphere becomes warmer and moister, and emits less heat to space, as the carbon dioxide level rises. In reality, it cools and dries and emits more heat to space. The upper troposphere emits half of the heat emitted to space by the Earth. So if the models get that part wrong, they are going to exaggerate the warming effect of carbon dioxide.)

But you never hear those facts in the media, because they never say it. Banned, like pertinent facts on money manufacture, IQ distributions, the usefulness of anti-virals on covid, election stealing, etc. etc. etc. Everywhere you look now there is censorship to protect self-interested parties.

Environmentalism, Trumpism, and the Working Class

Environmentalism, Trumpism, and the Working Class. By William Murray.

There is strong evidence that the country’s environmental policies and practices over the past half-century — and their contribution to lower economic growth and rising income inequality — have brought class tensions to a breaking point.

Since the Income Tax Amendment was ratified in 1913, political fights in the US have become largely about the redistribution of wealth and with it, social power. And nothing redistributes wealth more from the real, physical world and into cyber space — away from labor unions and skilled labor and into algorithmic code (where there is no regulation) — than environmental regulation.

As wide as the partisan gaps are concerning illegal immigration and free trade, none can compare to those on environmental protection and global warming. In 2019, Gallup found that 86 percent of Democrats say the government is doing too little in terms of environmental protection, while only 25 percent of Republicans believed the same. A poll by Resources for the Future found it “particularly intriguing” that 76 percent of Democrats believe that unchecked global warming will hurt them personally, but only 26 percent of Republicans believe the same. …

Globalization and environmental regulation severely damaged manufacturing — and thus the lower and middle classes — in the West.

One of the most important developments of the past decade has been an acknowledgement of the decline of relative incomes for the middle classes of North America and Europe over the past 30 years when globalization reigned supreme.

Brexit, the yellow jackets of France, the Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street, BLM, and MAGA all happened in societies that have seen decades of stagnant and even negative household income among those groups between 20–80 percent of most-developed countries’ income distributions. While academics argue over the scale of this redistribution … there is little argument that it represents the “greatest reshuffling of individual incomes since the Industrial Revolution.”

Countries that have seen the most dramatic growth in political populism — France, the United States — are places where the manufacturing base has fallen the most. Economies like Germany and South Korea, where fewer manufacturing jobs have been lost, have not seen this uptick in populist unrest. …

The elevation of the underclass to the middle class is one of the key attributes of the American experiment since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the 1800s. From the stockyards of Chicago to the coal mines and steel mills of Pennsylvania, millions of immigrants found their way into greater American society. …

Because manufacturing, agricultural, and energy production jobs can be done as well (if not better) without the educational credentials typically desired in many New Economy industries, upward mobility in America starts with these types of jobs. …

While [environmental regulations] were justified on human health grounds during its first decades, they have achieved a law of diminishing returns. Since the 1990s, these policies have led inexorably to the generational trend of offshoring jobs that undermines the social stability and upward mobility of the working and underclass …

Trump turned things around:

Ignorance of this economic truth is why it’s so disappointing that President Barack Obama believed one had to “wave a magic wand” to bring back manufacturing jobs. If there is one thing we’ve learned from the American economy’s experience under Trump, it’s that technological change and globalization are embedded in political choices, not historical determinism. Manufacturing and industrial jobs can return if economic incentives are aligned through public policy. …

Working class wage gains surpassed upper income wage gains between 2017–2019 for the first time since the late-1990s

It is clear that the environmental movement’s constraints on innovation and job creation have played a big part in the destruction of the labor market’s role in political integration for the American underclass. Yet the sacred narratives held by the political Left mean this will never be acknowledged, something clearly seen in the early days of the current administration.

Yet another politically incorrect truth.

There shouldn’t be a double standard for law & order

There shouldn’t be a double standard for law & order. By Miranda Devine.

In his confirmation hearing Monday, attorney general nominee Merrick Garland plans to tell the Senate his priority is domestic terrorism, and that he personally will supervise the prosecution of what he calls “white supremacists” who stormed the Capitol.

It is disturbing that Garland is embracing the rancid lie that the Capitol riot was racially motivated, an uprising by “white supremacists” which rivalled the Islamist terror attack of 9/11 in which 3,000 people were slaughtered.

This is Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s narrative, which she has driven with escalating hyperbole until it no longer resembles anything that happened on January 6. …

Almost everyone arrested around the country remains in jail over the riot, even if they committed no violence, have no criminal record, have stable jobs, are retirees or a mother and son duo.

The only person released without bail is a left-wing anti-Trump activist, John Sullivan, who prosecutors say encouraged the violence that day, and was rewarded with $75,000 by CNN and NBC for his video footage.

The aim is to bankrupt and destroy Trump supporters, most of whom can’t afford the legal fees. While top DC law firms raced to defend Guantanamo Bay inmates pro bono, the Capitol rioters are on their own. …

No one in Trump-world has offered to contribute to their legal fees from the millions of dollars his PAC collected after the election. …

Most BLM-Antifa rioters were released without bail and had charges dropped.

In New York more than 400 rioters and looters arrested in June were freed without bail.

In Washington DC, in June, almost everyone charged with felony rioting was released from jail and later had the charge dropped.

In Pennsylvania, when one judge set bail for rioters at $1 million, he was intimidated into reversing the decision after a mob marched on his house. …

In Minneapolis, where it all began, anti-cop rioters were rewarded, as they were in New York, when the city council voted to defund the police. The city since has descended into hell of crime and disorder.

As for Portland, Oregon, charges were dropped for 90 percent of rioters arrested in September’s anti cop violence. One 23-year-old charged with attempted murder, arson, possession of a destructive device, and rioting was released on a $1,000 bond. …

Equality under the law has vanished.

Fine. If Biden has decided we are to become a zero-tolerance law and order nation, there are advantage in a crime-free society if you don’t mind writing off everyone who makes a mistake.

But in reality, we are doing the opposite, creating a two-tier justice system that punishes only the political enemies of the left.

It’s as if the Dems want to create a class of people with nothing to lose.

Selective enforcement is discrimination.

SCOTUS avoids case challenging the Pennsylvania Nov. 3 election results: Justice Clarence Thomas Dissents

SCOTUS avoids case challenging the Pennsylvania Nov. 3 election results: Justice Clarence Thomas Dissents. By Jack Phillips.

The court on Monday announced it won’t take up lawsuits challenging a Pennsylvania state court decision that relaxed ballot-integrity measures, including a move to extend the ballot-receipt deadline during the November election by three days due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. Former President Donald Trump and Pennsylvania’s GOP urged the court to take up a review of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling.

“This is not a prescription for confidence,” Thomas wrote on Monday, adding that “changing the rules in the middle of the game is bad enough.” …

“That decision to rewrite the rules seems to have affected too few ballots to change the outcome of any federal election. But that may not be the case in the future,” Thomas wrote (pdf). “These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”

Other than Thomas, Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch also dissented. …

“We are fortunate that many of the cases we have seen alleged only improper rule changes, not fraud,” Thomas wrote. “But that observation provides only small comfort. An election free from strong evidence of systemic fraud is not alone sufficient for election confidence. Also important is the assurance that fraud will not go undetected.

Justices Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, who were appointed by Trump, sided with the liberal justices.

Fake elections may continue.

This antipodean Jeremy Corbyn is a drag on Labor’s vote

This antipodean Jeremy Corbyn is a drag on Labor’s vote. By Troy Bramston.

Jeremy Corbyn would be proud of Anthony Albanese. After several meetings and numerous selfies, the Australian Opposition Leader has adopted the same electoral strategy that the former British opposition leader pursued so disastrously. Corbyn’s central pitch to British voters in 2019 was Labour was “on your side”. Albanese’s central pitch to voters in 2021 is Labor is “on your side”. …

At the heart of Corbyn’s strategy was class warfare. He asked voters whose side they were on, seeking to drive a wedge through the electorate. This is what “on your side” means. It assumes there are different sides, good versus bad, and voters must choose between them. It pits employees against employers, poor against rich, consumers against business.

How did it work out for Corbyn? He led Labour to its worst result since 1935. …

Australian Labor has never won an election pursuing the politics of envy. Dividing the electorate with class warfare is a losing strategy. Positioning Labor as anti-aspiration and anti-business with a big-taxing and big-spending agenda spells doom. …

Anthony Albanese is a throwback:

Albanese is one of the last of Labor’s faction men from the Cold War era. He was NSW Labor’s assistant secretary from 1989 to 1995 and leader of the Hard-Left sub-faction. His strident, winner-take-all, factionalism began in Young Labor and carried through to the broader party and then the national parliament. His enemy was not so much the Right faction but the Soft Left sub-faction.

Andrew Leigh, now a Labor frontbencher, wrote about Labor’s factions in a journal article published in 2000. Leigh wrote that Albanese’s supporters were also known as “Bolsheviks” and the “Socialist Left”. They had close links with the broader left, including the Communist Party of Australia and People for Nuclear Disarmament. It is no surprise that Albanese sees Corbyn as a comrade in arms. …

Soon to be history:

The latest Newspoll shows support for Albanese tumbling. His approval rating is minus 7. In other words, more people disapprove (45 per cent) than approve (38 per cent) of the job he is doing. Albanese has repeatedly said in interviews that his leadership is not a concern because his net approval rating is positive. …

In the head-to-head contest as preferred prime minister, Albanese (26 per cent) is trounced by Scott Morrison (61 per cent). While the two-party vote is 50:50, Labor’s pri­mary vote of 37 per cent concerns party figures. …

Labor has never won a majority of seats at a federal election with a leader from the party’s Left faction, let alone a leader who has spent his life as a factional operator.

‘Climate Change’ Boondoggle Upon Boondoggle

‘Climate Change’ Boondoggle Upon Boondoggle. By Peter Smith.

Shortly after his book Climate: The Counter Consensus was published in 2010, the late palaeoclimatologist and climate-change skeptic, Professor Bob Carter, told me that he thought that the tide was about to turn. The scientific consensus would be upturned. Reason would return. He was wrong.  Now, eleven years later, the climate-change juggernaut is well past the point of no return. Its anchor in science has become neither here nor there.

Alan Moran, puts the annual costs of climate-change polices in Australia at AU15 billion. That would of course pale when set against costs in the E.U., Japan and North America. …

Next comes the physical manifestations of subsidies. Upwards of 150 million solar panels littered the planet in 2019; 341,000 wind turbines despoiled the land and seascapes in 2017. …

Best to draw breath and recall where this and everything else in the climate-change edifice comes from. It comes from a hypothesis, based principally on (tenuous and contested) modelling, that man-made CO2 has caused most warming since around 1975; and will go on warming the planet to an unsustainable extent, unless something is done and done urgently. …

Imagine: new incontrovertible evidence comes to light. The received scientific wisdom is mistaken. CO2 is not the devil-in-gaseous form. Now imagine light emerging from a black hole. You’re right, it can’t. The edifice of money, vested interest and political power is simply too gigantic and complex to be toppled by having the hypothesis beneath it pulled away. Galileo had more chance of convincing the Inquisition that the earth moves around the sun.

Catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is as settled a scientific proposition as can be found in the textbooks. Object as you like. Proffer new evidence. It will do no good. You will be cancelled. The Age of Reason is well and truly behind us.

There is a mistake in the models behind all this. But to tell the world that now invites a death sentence or worse. Why bother, without major institutional support — and there’s no chance of that.

Michael Burry Warns Weimar Hyperinflation Is Coming

Michael Burry Warns Weimar Hyperinflation Is Coming. By Tyler Durden.

Now none other than the man who was made famous in The Big Short is calling for Weimar-style hyperinflation in the US. …

Burry tweeted:

The US government is inviting inflation with its MMT-tinged policies. Brisk Debt/GDP, M2 increases while retail sales, PMI stage V recovery. Trillions more stimulus & re-opening to boost demand as employee and supply chain costs skyrocket …

Burry quotes this on the great German inflation after WWI:

The life of the inflation in its ripening stage was a paradox which had its own unmistakable characteristics. One was the great wealth, at least of those favored by the boom … Many great fortunes sprang up overnight … The cities, had an aimless and wanton youth”

Prices in Germany were steady, and both business and the stock market were booming. The exchange rate of the mark against the dollar and other currencies actually rose for a time, and the mark was momentarily the strongest currency in the world on inflation’s eve.

Side by side with the wealth were the pockets of poverty. Greater numbers of people remained on the outside of the easy money, looking in but not able to enter. The crime rate soared.

Accounts of the time tell of a progressive demoralization which crept over the common people, compounded of their weariness with the breakneck pace, to no visible purpose, and their fears from watching their own precarious positions slip while others grew so conspicuously rich.

Almost any kind of business could make money. Business failures and bankruptcies became few. The boom suspended the normal processes of natural selection by which the nonessential and ineffective otherwise would have been culled out.

Speculation alone, while adding nothing to Germany’s wealth, became one of its largest activities. The fever to join in turning a quick mark infected nearly all classes … Everyone from the elevator operator up was playing the market.

Sound eerily familiar? Then:

All the marks that existed in the world in the summer of 1922 were not worth enough, by November of 1923, to buy a single newspaper or a tram ticket. That was the spectacular part of the collapse, but most of the real loss in money wealth had been suffered much earlier.

Throughout these years the structure was quietly building itself up for the blow. Germany’s #inflationcycle ran not for a year but for nine years, representing eight years of gestation and only one year of #collapse.

Burry finishes with:

2010-2021: Gestation

The world keeps score and motivates work though our money system. When the money system breaks, so does much of society. Every other political issue — short of war — will be blown away.

Since 1971 the money system has been unconstrained, with governments able to manufacture more money at whim, held back only by inflationary fears. As time went by that fear dissipated; now it is only paid lip service. Inflation has been understated (on purpose), then ignored, and now finally — with the opening of the spigots due to covid — it is being positively begged by central bankers to come and do its worst.

Any system where some people can print money eventually succumbs to corruption. The people in charge always find some “compelling” reason for printing more. History tells us that paper money systems last about 50 years on average. 2021 is the 50th year since 1971, the year our money system finally became untethered from gold.

Btw, both the US and Australian constitutions say gold and silver (only) shall be used as money. Ever wondered why?

Next Up: Global Depression

Next Up: Global Depression. By Charles Hugh Smith.

Here’s the central banks’ insane folly in a nutshell: to create new enterprises and jobs, we’ll blow the world’s greatest speculative bubble into an even greater speculative bubble.

So in other words, we’ll further enrich the top layer of the Financial Aristocracy who own the vast majority of the assets we’re pushing to the moon, and by some inexplicable magic, adding trillions of dollars, yuan, yen and euros to the wealth of this elite will somehow launch a thousand new thriving enterprises which will magically hire 500,000 new workers every month.

Can we be honest for a split second and admit that the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus look plausible compared to this insane proposition?

Since there’s a tiny window of honesty open, let’s also admit that adding a booster rocket to the wealth-income inequality that is undermining democracy, society and the economy is exactly what we’d choose to do if our goal was destroying America. Yet this is precisely what the entire Federal Reserve policy sets out to do: boost wealth-income inequality to new extremes.

There’s a lot of dangerous corruption and stupidity around at the moment.

Australia’s Coming War with China

Australia’s Coming War with China, by David Archibald.

The next cathartic event coming up for Australia is war with China. We can win that war if we want to. But we have to decide to win that war. China’s GDP is only ten times that of Australia.

Their population is fixty-six times larger than ours. That big population is a weakness, not a strength. It makes them far more unstable than if they had a population one third that size. China can’t feed themselves at the moment through their own efforts. They will have to import far more food as the climate cools.

For many decades tiny Israel was able to fight off Arab forces that were backed with a population one hundred times larger than Israel’s. And the evolution of electronics has favoured the defence, which is what we will be doing.

If the Chicoms spend $200 million on building a ship, we only have to spend $5 million on missiles to sink that ship. After all, nobody on the side of the angels in this battle wants to set foot in China.

To take over the world, the Chicoms have to build a lot of ships. And to stop them, all we have to do is sink those ships. And sinking ships at great distances has become a lot easier over the last couple of decades with the evolution of processing power in electronics.

But it would help if we had the right weapons. The air force is buying F-35s for our air defence. Much has been written about the deficiencies of the F-35. I have contributed a book to the literature about the sheer wretchedness of the F-35.

Suffice it to say that the last US Secretary of Defense, Christopher Miller, said in a press conference in January that the F-35 is “a piece of shit”.

Let that sink in for a moment. The then head of the US military, only last month, said that the F-35 is “a piece of shit”. No doubt Mr Miller has been reading reports that the rest of us don’t get to read. We can take Mr Miller’s opinion as gospel. He will not be getting a seat on the board of Lockheed Martin, as a former commander of the US Marine Corps recently did.

The F-35 is truly a dog of an aircraft. Without proper fighter aircraft, we are effectively defenceless. The solution to that problem, the most cost-effective solution, is to make the Gripen fighter in Australia.

It is a similar story with our submarines. One of the few correct decisions Tony Abbott made as prime minister was to go for the Japanese submarines, the best conventional submarines on the planet. Turnbull, being a narcissist and all-round Australia-hater, felt compelled to destroy Abbott’s legacy and so he cancelled the Japanese submarines and opted for French vapourware at great expense. It is time to ditch the French submarines and revert to getting the Japanese ones.

There are many things we could do, and should do, but in the end China’s war may be “come as you are”. One thing we could do in a hurry would be to build a decent fuel stockpile in this country. A stockpile of at least 200 million barrels of diesel and jet fuel. But our idiotic government is hell bent on wasting money on all sort of idiotic schemes and is spending nothing on the things that matter.

They are wasting some $400 million on the black hole that is the hydrogen economy, for example. It is true that we should prepare for the time when all the coal and gas and oil have run out. But the only technology that can sustain our current standard of living is the right form of nuclear technology.

If we rely upon renewables, it will be a future of horse-drawn carts and civilizational collapse. Because solar panels are made in China using power costing four cents per kilowatt hour. Under ideal conditions in the Australian desert, those solar panels produce power costing twenty cents per kilowatt hour. If you tried to make solar panels with power produced by solar panels, the cost would be infinite.

The fact that we have solar panels littering our suburbs and the countryside is an artefact of cheap Chinese coal-based power. Nothing else. Solar panels are neither renewable nor sustainable. Wind turbines are the same. They are a false path for civilisation. A false path that leads to a dead end, a path chosen by idiots.

When China’s coal runs out, there will be no more solar panels from China. One day China’s coal will run out, our coal will run out some time after that.

A fiery speech covering many topics. Read it all.

We’re weakened by $300bn of Defence mistakes, cover-ups

We’re weakened by $300bn of Defence mistakes, cover-ups. By Robert Gottliebsen. After the F-35’s and submarines, comes the frigates.

The third defence equipment blunder that required cover-up has not been well documented. When Australia asked for tenders for the nine frigates, it stipulated that we wanted a vessel that was “in the water” and proven. We wanted to maximise Australian content. The Italian and Spanish tenders offered such a vessel but the British ship was not as advanced.

There was a lot of “rule Britannia” in the negotiations so, with a sense of history, we chose the British vessel even though it was more costly.

At some point we discovered that the base British vessel will not take the required US combat system plus the Australian radar system. So it’s now being completely redesigned.

The already high tender cost has risen 30 per cent to $45 billion and will go a lot higher. And local content is being slashed which means that we will not have extensive local infrastructure. The Canadians have similar problems but there is no cover-up.

The Americans took the Italian tender which is turning out very well because not only will their frigates be built at half the cost of the Australian vessels on the basis of our $45 billion current estimate. But given in reality we are designing a new frigate on a cost plus basis we might pay three or four times the American cost.

Like the submarines, the redesigning takes time and will leave Australia dangerously exposed in frigate capacity in the next decade. And the skilled Italians gave the Americans 98 per cent US content whereas our local content is being slashed.

These three blunders mean we don’t have the defence capability that we previously had in the region, but post Covid we have also skyrocketed our forward estimates of debt. We are now more dependent on the Americans then we have been since World War Two. That means we must stop trying to design new vessels and synchronise our defence equipment with existing proven equipment that is combatable with the Americans. And so we must join with them in strategies to overcome the shortcomings of the JSF. The Americans thought we were stupid to go with the French in submarines so we need to synchronise with their submarine investment. That may require us going nuclear. Maybe we should have the same frigates as the Americans. We are not achieving a defence capability in the region that we should have gained given the amounts we are spending

Accordingly, we must now look at our role in the region. With greatly reduced defence capacity we may need to see ourselves as a trading nation rather than a commentator on our trading partners.

The Chinese, with justification, think were are simply dumb which may be a reason why they treat us with contempt.

My parliamentary mates tell me the new Assistant Defence Minister Andrew Hastie actually does understand the basic thrust of the problems but they are not sure he understands just how serious the mistakes have become in the post-Covid world.

Sadly believable.

The Decline of the West: American Education Surrenders to ‘Equity’

The Decline of the West: American Education Surrenders to ‘Equity’. By Philip Girandi.

Public education in the United States, if measured by results, has been producing graduates that are less competent in language skills and dramatically less well taught in the sciences and mathematics since 1964, when Scholastic Aptitude Test scores peaked. …

Many schools in the United States have ceased issuing grades that have any meaning, or they have dropped grading altogether, which means there is no way to judge progress or achievement. National test scores for evaluating possible college entry are on the way out almost everywhere as they are increasingly being condemned as “racist” in terms of how they assess learning based solely on the fact that blacks do less well on them than Asians and whites.

This has all been part of an agenda that is being pushed that will search for and eliminate any taint of racism in the public space.

The new world order for education is built around the concept of “equity,” sometimes described as using the public education system to “ensure equitable outcomes.” …

It penalizes the good student to make sure that the bad student is somehow pushed through the system and winds up with the same piece of paper.

A world that equalizes the outcomes for two groups with different abilities is a world of low achievement and failure, where merit has been abandoned and abysmal standards are accepted. It’s a corrupt, dishonest approach.

Critical Race Theory … proposes that all of America’s governmental bodies and infrastructures are racist and supportive of “white supremacy” and must be deconstructed. …

At the elite Dalton private school in New York … a core of radicalized Dalton faculty members … signed on to an “anti-racism manifesto” which demanded that the school “hire 12 full-time diversity officers, abolish high-level academic courses if Black students’ performance isn’t on par with White students’, and require anti-racism ‘statements’ from all members of the staff.” …

And please don’t expect the Joe Biden administration to do anything to save it. They are on the side of the wreckers.

Critical race theory is killing the USA. Perhaps this stupidity will be confined to the US, because the rest of the West don’t have a large black population … yet.

Phillip Barton:

Whenever I despaired of the world, there was always the good ol’ US of A.

What is happening is a tragedy.

White People Aren’t Human

White People Aren’t Human. By Daniel Greenfield.

The Nation of Islam may be the largest racist religion in America. It is certainly the most influential with Louis Farrakhan’s original Million Man March drawing some 400,000 racists and allies of the hate group, including a young Barack Obama, who would later be photographed as a senator with the black supremacist leader at a Congressional Black Caucus event. …

Barack Obama and Louis Farrakhan (right), 2005

Despite a history of violent terrorism by the Nation of Islam and its spinoff groups, its racist theology which believes that white people are subhuman devils who will be killed off, and its antisemitism and conspiracy theories, the hate group is also incredibly culturally influential.

Black Nationalist theology, politics and culture are built on the ideas of the Nation of Islam. …

A summary of the theology of the Nation of Islam:

An evil Jewish mad scientist named Yakub (Jacob) used eugenics to create Europeans, Indians, and Asians from the original black master race after leaving Mecca. …

One of the most fundamental beliefs of the Nation of Islam is that white people aren’t human. … The Nation of Islam literally believes that white people are an illegitimate race of devils created by a mad scientist who are “made by nature a liar and a murderer”.

That belief is no longer confined to the racist hate group. It spilled into what Warnock misleadingly calls, “black theology” and into the foundational texts of what is even more misleadingly called “antiracism”. …

Online antiracist seminars offer white people the ability to “Re-Become Human” by “healing from internalized whiteness”. …

Critical race theory is built around black nationalism. That’s why it explicitly rejects Martin Luther King Jr’s call for brotherhood and instead champions racial separatism and original sin. And black nationalism is just a copy of white nationalism complete with a master race and inferior races. The difference between racism and antiracism is that racists don’t deny they’re racist. …

Critical race theory and Nation of Islam are incompatible with Western civilization:

At stake are irreconcilable questions about hate, equality, and the nature of the society we want.

The old civil rights movement argued that we could achieve equality by letting go of hate.

Black nationalist movements and their leftist allies found hate uplifting and didn’t want equality. The fusion of tribal racial hatred on one side of the partnership and Marxist reductionism on the other birthed a racist movement dedicated to perpetuating racism while calling itself antiracist.

Antiracism offers both black nationalists and white leftists what they want. Black nationalists receive uncritical affirmations of racial superiority and a license to hate, while white leftists are encouraged to dismantle their civilizations from buildings and statues to language and mores, in the name of combating a concept of whiteness that encompasses thousands of years of history. …

A movement whose guiding lights are racial supremacy and racial inferiority is not going to stop being racist, even if you pack it with academic jargon and then make sure to put “anti” in front of the “racism”. The only way to pass off antiracism as anything other than racist is by redefining racism. …

Declaring white people to be less than human because they’re racist isn’t antiracism. It’s still racism. …

The best evidence of whether an idea is racist is whether spreading it leads to more or less hatred.

Antiracism has made America a lot more racist and racially divided than it was in a long time.

The globalists and their leftist activists are furiously denying all this, but it is obvious to anyone who opens their eyes.

How far will the Biden regime go?

Over 120 UK-based charities that paid for ‘implicit bias’ courses just ‘tip of the iceberg’ in lucrative woke industry

Over 120 UK-based charities that paid for ‘implicit bias’ courses just ‘tip of the iceberg’ in lucrative woke industry. By RT.

At least 122 UK-based charities, from large multinationals to small community groups, have spent money on “unconscious bias training” for employees, according to a report by the Telegraph published on Friday. What it discovered is likely just “the tip of the iceberg,” the report said, since companies offering such courses brag about having many undisclosed clients in the voluntary sector. …

Critics see implicit bias training as nothing but a scam, a chance for cowardly corporations and public officials to signal their virtue by showing the “woke” mob they are active in the fight against racism, sexism and other bad-isms in the workplace. …

In the UK, unconscious bias training remains highly popular in universities. Those studying at Somerville College Oxford, the alma mater of Conservative icon Margaret Thatcher, had been required to score 100 per cent in a test after taking an online course, according to the Daily Mail. After a complaint from the Free Speech Union, it is reviewing this policy, however.

Perhaps in 2030 you’ll need a covid vaccination certification and 100% on your critical race theory test to be allowed to travel. (Don’t laugh — it was only a few years ago that gay marriage seemed far-fetched.)

National Security ‘Experts’: Republicans ‘Behaving Like a Terror Group,’ to Be Viewed ‘as Enemy Combatants’

“[I]magine the reaction if someone in a right-wing outlet published an article in which someone casually mentioned dropping a bomb on Democrats,” wrote historian Varad Mehta. “These people are nuts.”
