These people are MORONS. They couldn't run a dirty bookstore, even with the peepshow closed down. And now they're gonna put their Leftist wet-dreams in play. Open Borders, Free Money, and punish Whitey.

I think it's gonna be a short, exhilarating ride...but they're not gonna like where it stops.

Nor us. Best be thinking of your own personal Plan B.

WOKE ELEMENTARY
A Cupertino elementary school forces third-graders to deconstruct their racial identities, then rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.”
January 13, 2021
Christopher F. Rufo
An elementary school in Cupertino, California—a Silicon Valley community with a median home price of $2.3 million—recently forced a class of third-graders to deconstruct their racial identities, then rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.”

Based on whistleblower documents and parents familiar with the session, a third-grade teacher at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary School began the lesson on “social identities” during a math class. The teacher asked all students to create an “identity map,” listing their race, class, gender, religion, family structure, and other characteristics. The teacher explained that the students live in a “dominant culture” of “white, middle class, cisgender, educated, able-bodied, Christian, English speaker,” who, according to the lesson, “created and maintained” this culture in order “to hold power and stay in power.”

Next, reading from This Book Is Antiracist, the students learned that “those with privilege have power over others” and that “folx who do not benefit from their social identities, who are in the subordinate culture, have little to no privilege and power.” As an example, the reading states that “a white, cisgender man, who is able-bodied, heterosexual, considered handsome and speaks English has more privilege than a Black transgender woman.” In some cases, because of the principle of intersectionality, “there are parts of us that hold some power and other parts that are oppressed,” even within a single individual.

Following this discussion, the teacher had the students deconstruct their own intersectional identities and “circle the identities that hold power and privilege” on their identity maps, ranking their traits according to the hierarchy. In a related assignment, the students were asked to write short essays describing which aspects of their identities “hold power and privilege” and which do not. The students were expected to produce “at least one full page of writing.” As an example, the presentation included a short paragraph about transgenderism and nonbinary sexuality.

The lesson caused an immediate uproar among Meyerholz Elementary parents. “We were shocked,” said one parent, who agreed to speak with me on condition of anonymity. “They were basically teaching racism to my eight-year-old.” This parent, who is Asian-American, rallied a group of a half dozen families to protest the school’s intersectionality curriculum. The group met with the school principal and demanded an end to the racially divisive instruction. After a tense meeting, the administration agreed to suspend the program. (When reached for comment, Jenn Lashier, the principal of Meyerholz Elementary, said that the training was not part of the “formal curricula, but the process of daily learning facilitated by a certified teacher.”)

The irony is that, despite being 94 percent nonwhite, Meyerholz Elementary is one of the most privileged schools in America. The median household income in Cupertino is $172,000, and nearly 80 percent of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher. At the school, where the majority of families are Asian-American, the students have exceptionally high rates of academic achievement and the school consistently ranks in the top 1 percent of all elementary schools statewide. In short, nobody at Meyerholz is oppressed, and the school’s high-achieving parents know that teaching intersectionality instead of math is a waste of time—and potentially dangerous.

One parent told me that critical race theory was reminiscent of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. “[It divides society between] the oppressor and the oppressed, and since these identities are inborn characteristics people cannot change, the only way to change it is via violent revolution,” the parent said. “Growing up in China, I had learned it many times. The outcome is the family will be ripped apart; husband hates wife, children hate parents. I think it is already happening here.”

The small fight at Meyerholz reflects a larger development: for the first time, Asian-Americans on the West Coast have become politically mobilized. In 2019, Asian-Americans ran a successful initiative campaign against affirmative action in Washington State; in 2020, Asian-Americans ran a similar campaign in California, winning by an astonishing 57 percent to 43 percent margin. In both cases, they defended the principles of meritocracy, individual rights, and equality under the law—and roundly defeated a super-coalition of the states’ progressive politicians, activists, universities, media, and corporations.

The stakes are high for the Asian-American community. For progressives insisting on the narrative of “white supremacy” and “systemic racism,” Asian-Americans are the “inconvenient minority”: they significantly outperform all other racial groups, including whites, in terms of academic achievement, college admissions, household income, family stability, and other key measures. Affirmative action and other critical race theory-based programs would devastate their admissions to universities and harm their futures.

At Meyerholz Elementary, the Asian-American families are on high alert for critical race theory in the classroom. Since their initial victory, they have begun to consider campaigning against the school board. “We think some of our school board members are [critical race theory] activists and they must go,” said one parent. The capture of our public institutions by progressives obsessed by race and privilege deserves opposition at every level. The parents of Cupertino have joined the fight.

The nation's going to Hell.

And I don't mean that as a throwaway. We are literally, collapsing in chaos, in mental illness, in the mental torture and abuse of our young.

Those of us who plan to survive...need to start thinking of their own future, quite apart from that of the Untied Skates.

They're continuing to indoctrinate the children into how they want them to think. We allow it therefore we condone it. Nothing else needs to be said

Rush Limbaugh has been telling us for 25 years that liberalism is a mental disorder.

Poor guy, dying of cancer, spent his whole life trying to stop the left only to know they’ll be celebrating his death as they try to crush the rest of us

He's dying too soon; but not out of the realm of normal. It's threescore and ten that we're told to expect, and he just got them in.

Did you read Zev Chafets' biography on Limbaugh? There was a scene, towards the end of the book, where Limbaugh apparently had a moment of feeling overwhelmed. He turned to Chafets, so the account goes, and said, "They're not going to quit until they've taken everything I have and they've destroyed me."

How much of that was dramatic license, I cannot say; but there's no question he has been in their sights.

He may be getting an underhanded blessing, exiting this Vale of Tears just before da schitte be gettin REAL.

Too bad he didn't take an aspirin-a-day, which kills cancer cells in the bud...

I bet he'd be entertaining us well today!

Gotta search.
Thought it was cancer.
We're both wrong...heart condition!

Death[edit]
Carlin had a history of heart problems spanning three decades. These included three heart attacks (in 1978, 1982, and 1991), an arrhythmia requiring an ablation procedure in 2003, and a significant episode of heart failure in late 2005. He twice underwent angioplasty.[67] On June 22, 2008, he died of heart failure at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, at the age of 71.[68][69] His death occurred one week after his last performance at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated and his ashes were scattered in front of various nightclubs he had played in New York City and over Spofford Lake in Chesterfield, New Hampshire, where he had fond memories of attending summer camp as an adolescent.[70]

UK Law Enforcement Demands Power to Raid Homes Over COVID

A regional police commissioner in the UK is upset that police don’t have the power to enter your home to enforce COVID rules.

The commissioner has raised the issue with the national government, because he believes “For the small minority of people who refuse entry to police officers and obstruct their work, the power of entry would seem to be a useful tool.”

Big Brother might not be watching yet… but he wants to be able to come into your home just in case.

Antifa Violence Forces Portland Bookstore to Cancel Book on... Antifa Violence

A book by Andy Ngo called Unmasked: Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, is about the violent tactics that Antifa uses to coerce and intimidate its ideological opponents.

And after a Portland bookstore began carrying the book, Antifa threatened to destroy the store and organized a seething protest outside one of the locations.

The “Anti-Fascist” activists surrounded the bookseller, plastered banners on its windows, and forced it to close early “to keep employees and customers safe.”

Antifa’s intimidation worked. The store responded that they will not carry the physical books, but that they would still keep the book in their online catalogue in order to “[shed] light on the dark corners of public discourse.”

Additionally, though, the bookstore groveled in a public statement to indicate ideological alignment with Antifa, saying “It feels ugly and sickening to give any air to writing that could cause such deep pain to members of our community.”

Sometimes it just takes the threat of violence to turn someone into a goose-stepping collaborator.

New York wants to make body armor illegal

New York legislators introduced a bill that would make it a crime for all of us peasants to purchase or possess body armor, or bulletproof vests.

Law enforcement would still be allowed to buy and own body armor however.

And no one would be grandfathered in either; the commoners would have 15 days to turn in their protective gear, or face the consequences.

The first offense is a misdemeanor, which means you could face a year in prison for owning a bulletproof vest.

The second offense is a class E felony-- punishable by between one and four years in prison.

Clearly only criminals would want to shield themselves from bullets.

Click here to read the bill.

This is just another step in NY to change the ability of the people to not only protect themselves but to further oppress the people into subservience.

Sooner than later things have to change.

Your Credit Score Should Be Based on Your Web History, IMF Says


Rhett Jones

Filed to:BAD IDEAS

With more services than ever collecting your data, it’s easy to start asking why anyone should care about most of it. This is why. Because people start having ideas like this.



In a new blog post for the International Monetary Fund, four researchers presented their findings from a working paper that examines the current relationship between finance and tech as well as its potential future. Gazing into their crystal ball, the researchers see the possibility of using the data from your browsing, search, and purchase history to create a more accurate mechanism for determining the credit rating of an individual or business. They believe that this approach could result in greater lending to borrowers who would potentially be denied by traditional financial institutions.
At its heart, the paper is trying to wrestle with the dawning notion that the institutional banking system is facing a serious threat from tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Apple. The researchers identify two key areas in which this is true: Tech companies have greater access to soft-information, and messaging platforms can take the place of the physical locations that banks rely on for meeting with customers.
The concept of using your web history to inform credit ratings is framed around the notion that lenders rely on hard-data that might obscure the worthiness of a borrower or paint an unnecessarily dire picture during hard times. Citing soft-data points like “the type of browser and hardware used to access the internet, the history of online searches and purchases” that could be incorporated into evaluating a borrower, the researchers believe that when a lender has a more intimate relationship with the potential client’s history, they might be more willing to cut them some slack.
“Banks tend to cushion credit terms for their long-term customers during downturns,” the paper’s authors write. This is because they have a history and relationship with the customer. Now, imagine the kind of intimate history that Facebook could have with a borrower and suddenly its digital cash initiative starts to make more sense.

But how would all this data be incorporated into credit ratings? Machine learning, of course. It’s black boxes all the way down.
The researchers acknowledge that there will be privacy and policy concerns related to incorporating this kind of soft-data into credit analysis. And they do little to explain how this might work in practice. The paper isn’t long, and it’s worth a read just to wrap your mind around some of the notions of fintech’s future and why everyone seems to want in on the payments game.
As it is, getting the really fine soft-data points would probably require companies like Facebook and Apple to loosen up their standards on linking unencrypted information with individual accounts. How they might share information would other institutions would be its own can of worms. And while the researchers sound bullish on the advantages that tech companies have over banks, they cite business-to-business lending as a game that traditional institutions continue to dominate. “This may change, however, due to the rise of cloud computing, which may enable large technology firms to create B2B ecosystems that include large corporate customers,” they write.

Yes, the idea of every move you make online feeding into your credit score is creepy. It may not even be possible in the near future. The IMF researchers stress that “governments should follow and carefully support the technological transition in finance. It is important to adjust policies accordingly and stay ahead of the curve.” When’s the last time a government did any of that?

Kathleen Kennedy : We are joining forces with China Jan 14, 2021

Disney going full on CCP



Edward Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of China Literature, says they are very excited to be partnering with Disney and Lucasfilm. I imagine he is. Edward is also the Vice President of Tencent and Chief Executive Officer of Tencent Pictures, which has plans to release a film celebrating the brutal CCP according to China Daily:

Updates on a total of 56 projects were announced, including plans to release an epic film 1921 to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party of China, as well as the second season of Qing Yu Nian, a sought-after drama adapted from a namesake popular online novel.

Now that the CCP’s pet gerbil has been placed into the U.S. Presidency, and with the possibility of Bob Iger being appointed as ambassador to China, the propagandist possibilities are endless.

James Waugh, VP of Franchise Content & Strategy for Lucasfilm, says that the author of this story will bring very specific Chinese perspectives to the world building. Though it’s likely that James conflates the perspective of the Chinese people with the perspective of the CCP, which are entirely different and separate.

Kudos to Actress Kristy Swanson for openly showing support for President Trump. She's a rare breed in Hollywood.

Her career is finished, now.

Maybe it was anyway.

But then, given the New Normal we have, of face-diaperage and political persecution...maybe Hollywierd and the celebutard culture is going to be done for anyway.

For fifteen years, I've said to any and all, we need a bit of hard times to impose reality on these spoiled, self-absorbed idiots in the Coastal cities.

Never did I imagine it would happen this way...I had figured, eventually, we'd have some sort of political intrigue which would take advantage of our "educated" young people's ignorance...but not this way, and not with the Chinese as open masterminds and puppetmasters. It was possible, but I couldn't conceive of what it would be like.

Well, here it is. The saying is, hard times make strong men. But what happens if the most-intelligent and educated are all arrested for political crimes and shot? Russia is what happens. They have the lowest mean IQ scores of any nation with a white majority population.

For three generations, anyone with more intelligence than the nobodys who went to create a Marxist Utopia with guns...anyone brighter was fed into the camps or put in front of a firing line. Is the American public of 100 years going to be equally passive and stupid? Are we going to reject Communism after 80 years of it, only to have the former head of its secret police try to impose a somewhat-modified form of it?

Good points! It's clear that America has been deeply infected with communists and that it's been China, not Russia, all along. How we come out the other side is anyone's guess but I can't help but keep thinking of what Ronny Raygun said before he was neutered by that assassination attempt.

"If we lose freedom here, there's no place left on Earth to go!"

There's no good place left.

There's only less-bad bad places.

I am obsessed with Mexico - not because I love Mexicans, and not because I'm stuck on stupid, but because it's very convenient. We can walk there, if we have to. And it's emptying its bowels into OUR land...let's just swap!

It's a land of abundant resources, grossly mismanaged. But I think compared to the Untied Skates, they have relative personal freedom, and prior to Beer Virus, they were on an ascent. Putting some of their political corruption behind them.

National borders, population moves, are always shifting. The Saxons overcame the Celts on what are now the British Isles, and became the dominant power...even a variation of their Norman French became the tongue of the educated. English.

We are going to have to get our minds around it. I don't think there's any future with the chains of Imperial Washington upon us, nor with the deviant, mentally-ill Beltway Mentality guiding their twisted moral choices.

Tyranny is descending everywhere and running away will only forestall your own personal interaction with the tyrants responsible for pushing the "global reset". America still has a whole lot of heavily armed folks that believe in the merits of personal responsibility. I rather make my stand with them...live or die.

Only problem is, IT IS NOT HAPPENING.

Secession of rational regions WAS the answer. The hour grows late. Californication infects much of what was traditional America, now.

Soon the Left's police state will march on us to disarm us.

Did the Germans who stayed, do better than those who fled?

The Germans were on the losing side of an unjust hot war. Your comparison is invalid imo.

I don't know, ultimately, what's going to happen, but it's happening everywhere. Only the pace differs. Do you believe Americans are going to allow themselves to be disarmed?

Not in 1936, they were not. They were busy vilifying certain ethnics - not all of them Jews.

That was when my father, age 12, fled - after his father was disappeared after being taken to the local Gestapo office. For being swarthy without a Star of David on.

We're EXACTLY at that point. At some point, Bidet's handlers are gonna have to ramp up the war machine as a distraction...just like Onkel Adolf did.
