Big-headed babies are brightest

The size of babies’ heads at birth is strongly linked to their future success, with larger head circumferences and brain volume associated with higher intelligence, scientists have found.

The finding is among the first to emerge from data gathered by UK Biobank, in which 500,000 Britons are being studied over the long term to discover the links between their genes, their physical and mental health and their path through life.

A key target for the research is unravelling the complex links between brain function and DNA — one of neuroscience’s great challenges because so many genes are involved.

The finding, however, suggests something relatively simple: that brain size matters — a lot. “Highly significant associations were observed between the cognitive test scores in the UK Biobank sample and many polygenic profile scores, including . . . intracranial volume, infant head circumference and childhood cognitive ability,” said the researchers in a paper published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.

The finding is likely to be one of many insights resulting from the Biobank data. The researchers, led by Professor Ian Deary, of Edinburgh University, said they had also found gene variants that were strongly associated with intelligence.

Analysis of verbal–numerical reasoning identified 17 significant genes, some that could even predict how likely it was that someone would go on to secure a place at university.


   The Archbishop of Vienna added his name to the growing list of prelates who were publicly recognizing that the ultimate aim of many Muslims was the conquest of Europe.

    In a homily at a Sunday Mass, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn warned that “Europe is on the verge of forfeiting its Christian heritage,” noting that this loss, which was already being felt, was “not only economic, but above all human and religious.” The Viennese Cardinal asked the large congregation gathered in Saint Stephen’s cathedral church: “Will there be an Islamic conquest of Europe?” “Many Muslims want that and say: ‘Europe is finished,’” he warned.

    The Mass, celebrated on 9/11, commemorated the Catholic feast of the “Holy Name of Mary,” which was instituted 332 years ago in gratitude for the liberation of Vienna from the Ottoman Turks. The Battle of Vienna, between the allied Christian forces and 90,000 Islamic invaders, was waged on September 11th and 12th, 1683, and marked the turning point in Europe’s 300-year struggle against Islam.

    Against this serious backdrop man must first rely on the mercy of God, the Cardinal said. “God have mercy on Europe and on thy people, who are in danger of forfeiting our Christian heritage,” he prayed.


As mad Mueslis mounted (mercifully amateurish) terror bomb attacks on Americans in New York, Minnesota and New Jersey, polls showed The Donald drawing level in polls with Crooked Hillary. Trump supporters liked the thought of a strongman in the White House. Chris Christie, the powerful New Jersey (pop. 9M ) governor who had endorsed the Republican, said: “People are sick of political correctness. They want somebody who speaks his mind {about mediaeval Muesli mayhem}.” Even fatty fall-prone pneumonic Clinton herself said America should and would “defeat the bitter, twisted ideology of the terrorists.”

{Muesli ideology was that Islam should be spread not by reasoning, faith, hope, love and good works, but by the sword. Western peecee ideology of c.2000 was that no differences between people in intelligence and psychoticism should be acknowledged, let alone mentioned.}


As the presidential days of America’s Black-, Muesli-fathered and Brit-hating Barry Hussein Obarmy drew to a merciful close with the ‘accidental’ Western killing of 62 Syrian soldiers and apparent Russian retaliation against a convoy of aid to Syria’s 2M rebels in Aleppo, a Times correspondent wisely summed up (21 ix) the need for a united front against the Solunni-backed savages of ISICK.

Try to remember that Russia was our most effective ally in WW2; the US only dragging itself reluctantly in after Pearl Harbour – otherwise America would have left us and the whole of Europe to our fate.

    It’s really important to get Russia back on-side again and part of a "greater Europe".  Putin may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he took over Russia when it was in complete meltdown and has restored order. He has created a Russian middle class of millions and this middle class shares much the same values, culture and norms that we do.

    Putin’s Russia has also been the most effective nation to take on ISIS, putting to shame the US, the UK and all the other so-called coalition that were often arming the wrong groups in the region.

    I think Trump is clever enough to see this and try to make Russia a working partner in this increasingly uncertain world. Europe must follow suit.


Fulfilling The Donald’s wildest dreams, eastern Europe’s gypsies – a race distinguished by their dyslexia as much as by their skills at dancing, knife-grinding, fighting, thieving and begging (though no such average group differences could be mentioned by the righteous) – found that an airline ticket to Mexico would give them a reasonable chance of crossing the border into dreamland USA.

In the first half of 2016, almost 1,800 ‘Romanians’ were apprehended at the southern US border, up from fewer than 400 in all of 2015 and just a few dozen in 2008, according to US government statistics. They were propelled by an anti-immigrant wave sweeping Europe and pushing the Roma across the Atlantic (Bloomberg, 19 ix).

    The traditionally itinerant group, ‘persecuted’ for centuries for its boisterous psychopathy, was facing less-tolerant governments as more than a million migrants and refugees from Syria and other countries threatened to overwhelm central Europe, egged on by Germany’s Multiculticrazy Mutti Merkel. A resurgence of neo-Nazism from Romania to Italy had seen the gypsies’ camps demolished, businesses fire-bombed, neighbourhoods walled off and children beaten for pickpocketing.

    The gypsies saw opportunity in the US, despite its own rising populism and calls for stricter immigration laws. Border Patrol agents said they showed up in groups that sometimes numbered more than 20, and most arrived with the help of smugglers. “Every one of them claims to be Roma,” said Daniel Parks, a US Customs and Border Protection agent in the San Diego region. “They claim they are part of that class that is persecuted by the government of Romania.”

    Since Romania and Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007, ’Roma’ moving west to access labor markets had been met with mounting resistance. In Sweden, politicians debated whether to ban begging, a tactic critics said targeted Roma. In France, police demolished Roma camps outside Paris. The Canadian government passed a law in 2012 cracking down on “bogus” asylum claimants after thousands of Hungarian Roma sought refuge there.

Now, the Roma were taking their chances in the US. Many ended up in suburban Los Angeles. Some found housing in common apartments, while others simply pitched tents in a public park until they could secure a roof over their heads. They sometimes found work as night-time janitors or in restaurants, while others resorted to begging on the street or receiving assistance from the two Roma churches in the area.


The charming and scholarly Professor Derek Forrest, long of glorious Trinity College Dublin, and a robust opponent of paedohysteria, died a year ago and was given the following obituary by his Birkenhead School.

Obituary sent by Derek's daughter, Mrs Tansy Forrest-Takano:

Derek William Forrest died on 22 September 2015, aged 89. The following obituary was written by his former colleague, Howard Smith of Trinity College Dublin.

Derek Forrest was born in Liverpool, the son of a cotton salesman. He attended Birkenhead School, where he became head boy. He went from school up to Cambridge University, where he started a degree in German, but he was called up for National Service before it was complete. In the Royal Navy he spent time on HMS Implacable, and worked in radar.

Following his naval service, Derek returned to his academic studies, taking a degree in Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology (PPP) at Keble College, Oxford. Always a good athlete, he represented Oxford University in both swimming and athletics.

After graduating from Oxford he worked at the Aircraft Research Laboratory in Farnborough for a year, before being appointed lecturer at Bedford College, London, where he subsequently obtained his PhD, before being appointed as Reader in Psychology at Trinity College Dublin in 1962. Within a short time he was given responsibility for developing a Psychology Department of his own and in 1968 was appointed as the first Professor of Psychology at Trinity College Dublin.

    His academic interests were broad and eclectic; he had a detailed knowledge of psychoanalysis and an abiding interest in important figures and events in the history of psychology. He is probably best known for his books Francis Galton: The Life and Work of a Victorian Genius (1974), and The Evolution of Hypnotism (1999), though he also wrote Defy your Age (2008) for a more general audience.

Regrettably he was unable to complete his book on the Tichborne affair (the longest running court case in Victorian England) before he died. He was a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin, the Psychological Society of Ireland, the British Psychological Society and the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

    Derek presided over a department that was happy and stimulating for both staff and students. He was in some ways quite a shy person, but to those whom he knew well he was the most charming and engaging companion, and fellow members of staff delighted in his company. He encouraged his colleagues to follow their own interests and was also inspirational in his questioning and the generation of provocative ideas. His public talks and demonstrations of hypnosis were hugely popular.

    He was a charismatic figure who cannot possibly be adequately described in a few short paragraphs. Although he retired in 1996, he is still remembered with great affection by those who were members of his department.

    He suffered from Parkinson’s disease in the last few years of his life, and died following a stroke. He is survived by his wife, Pam, and daughter, Tansy.


As Britain’s Labour Party re-elected the elderly ungraduated Marxist ‘Jezza’ Corbyn as leader and thus doomed itself continue its three-way civil war between indebted youthful no-hopers of pro-Muslim and anti-Jewish sympathies, elderly working-class Northern nationalists who took the trouble to vote (increasingly for anti-EU Ukip....), and centrist Blairites who had backed the bankers and kept the party in power for thirteen years (1997-2010), star Observer columnist Nick Cohen put his finger on the central problem of the modern left’s intellectuals (25 ix):

....the authoritarianism, which has turned left-liberalism into a movement for sneaks and prudes, was always going to play into the hands of the right. Free citizens have stopped listening to those who respond to the challenge of argument by screaming for the police to arrest the politically incorrect or for universities to ban speakers who depart from leftish orthodoxy.

Demands from students for “safe spaces” and for campus bans on ‘controversial‘ speakers were inhibiting intellectual debate among academics and prompting scholars to shun risks, a new book argued (Times, 12 ix). "Why academic freedom matters"

It accused many luniversity lecturers and professors of “a cowardly abdication of responsibility” in failing to encourage intellectual robustness among students, challenging rather than suppressing opinions they found unpleasant. Too many academics were perpetuating a notion among a generation of students that they should be protected from ideas they found distasteful, instead of upholding universities as places to discuss, question and challenge, it said.

    The book of essays, Why Academic Freedom Matters, by British and US academics and researchers, published by the think tank Civitas, sought to promote academic freedom after a succession of bans by student unions on speakers, sombrero hats and tabloid newspapers, among others, and a culture of “safe spaces” that banned dissenting views.

There had also been demands at universities in the US for “trigger warnings” on course materials, and even on classic works of literature dealing with themes that students might find ‘upsetting’ — and a fixation on “micro-aggressions” that ‘insulted’ some people due to unconscious prejudice.

    One writer, Kathryn Ecclestone, professor of education at the University of Sheffield, said universities should stop encouraging some students to seek help for ‘anxiety,’ saying counselling must be for those with a clearly assessed mental illness.

A Times correspondent pondered:

"Perhaps those students at university who want to be able to discuss controversial subjects in an open environment without fear of redress from those who might take offense at grown-up debate, should be given a safe space in which to do this?... Oh, wait a minute, isn't that called a university? Please help, I'm confused and I think I need counselling - or at least a fluffy toy to cuddle!

    And the UK’s new PM took the opportunity of questioning in the House of Commons to counsel against the ‘safe space’ movement. “We want our universities not just to be places of learning but places where there is open debate which is challenged and people can get involved in that,” the Prime Ministress averred (Independent, 15 ix).

Though not exemplifying what luniversity staff and students should be free to discuss or mention – race & IQ, LGBTQs, the pain, pleasure and profit to be had from paedophilia, the achievements of Cecil Rhodes, secret female two-timing, etc, -- Theresa May said: “I think everybody is finding this concept of safe spaces quite extraordinary, frankly. We want to see innovation of thought taking place in our universities -- that is how we develop as a country, as a society and as an economy.”


 Confronting the low-IQ, Muesli, Merkel-invited invasion of Europe, the UK’s new Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson (Eton, Balliol, Speccie and London beds) called for putative migrants sailing across the Mediterranean from Africa to be “turned back” by a European Union naval operation that included two Royal Navy vessels which previous PM Daft Dave had required to provide a congenial ferry service for pumigrants (Times, 16 ix).

Ships involved in ‘Operation Sophia,’ which was instigated by EUSSR goons in 2015, were charged with picking up pumigrants they found on the ‘high seas’ of the Mediterranean and ferrying them kindly – all expenses paid -- to Italy. The fleet had never been involved in so-called push-backs, a practice that had been outlawed by the European Court of Human Rights in 2012 after it was briefly introduced by Italy in 2009.

Mr Johnson, however, appeared to back the measure during a joint press conference he held in Florence with his Italian counterpart, Paolo Gentiloni. Describing the hundreds of migrant vessels sailing in 2016 from Libyan beaches, and scheduled to bring a further .3M A/As to European heaven if weather continued clement in 2016, the British Foreign Secretary said: “I think personally they should be turned back as close to the [African] shore as possible so they don’t reach the Italian mainland and there’s more of a deterrent effect {on the hordes wanting to escape from the ‘independent’ countries which they had demanded for themselves in preference to being run by Britain, France or Italy}.”


 The ethno-religious civil war between Mueslis (which the multiculti West had declined to recognize) reached new heights of state-backed bellicosity. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, claimed that Saudi officials had “murdered” injured Iranian pilgrims at the whirling-dervish ‘haj’ of 2015 through their negligence; and the Supreme Shitite accused the “cursed, evil” Solunni royal family of being “puny Satans” in thrall to America’s “great Satan”.

He called on other Muslim powers to “punish” Sunni Saudi Arabia over the accident, in which 464 Shitites had been trampled to death. Grand Mufti Abdul Fartaz Aziz al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia’s most senior Solunni cleric, responded by claiming that Iranians were “not Muslims”. {The two sides in the 1,400-year inter-Muesli hostilities were already busily engaged in reducing Yemen to the same rubble as eastern Syria.}


 Funding-blessed researchers in London, New Zealand and North Carolina reported independently, from vast follow-ups of children, that particular collections of genetic variations (e.g. ‘M1’ and ‘M3’) predicted reading ability, school achievement and early success in socio-economic life – with some 10% of variation being explained by the grant-winners and their scores of state-funded assistants (Daily Mail, 16 ix).

Just when the boffins would get round to explaining the 70% of human variation in success identified as due to intelligence by Burt and Eysenck remained unclear; but the pious postmodern psychowallahs could reasonably expect achievement so long as they did not mention the g factor and kept the lolly rolling in.


 An Islam expert warned of a civil war across Europe as more young Muslims were being increasingly radicalised (Sun, 13 ix). Professor Gilles Kepel, from the Sciences Po[litiques] university in Paris, claimed a growing number of Muslims with poor job prospects were forming a “Jihad Generation” to continue to commit acts of terror across Europe. {Only 1% of Germany’s 1.2M ‘Syrian’ invaders of 2015 had found work.}

According to the German newspaper Die Welt, Kepel said the terror group’s aim was to incite hatred towards Muslims from the rest of the society which would eventually radicalise others to the point that Europe could enter into full-blown civil war.

Kepel, a specialist on Islamic and contemporary Arab world, added these ISIS fanatics not only wanted to destroy Europe, but to eliminate more moderate Islamic opposition. {Muesli-on-Muesli murders in Britain were increasingly notable – most lately of a 71-yr-old imam accused by young jihadists in Rochdale of practising black magic [the wearing of amulets bearing verses of the Koran – an innocent-seeming practice but apparently a cause for murder by Salafic of Sufic Mueslis].}

    “This terrorism is above all an expression of a war within Islam,” Kepel explained. “The long-term goal of the Jihad Generation is to destroy Europe through civil war and then build an Islamic society from the ashes.” He believed their strategy was similar to the expansion of ‘Islamic State’ {ISICK} in Syria, Iraq and Libya where the terrorist organisation was able to use the chaos of civil war to slowly build its forces, grow in power, and soon seize territory. His comments came after French Prime Minister Manuel Valls revealed that 15,000 radicalised Muesli goons were on police watchlists in France.


As pudgy, puffy and forever-mock-gleefully-pointing ‘Crooked Hillary’ Clinton, 69, returned to the US campaign trail after ‘recovering’ from pneumonia and a fall in just four days, her putatively Presidential opponent ‘The Donald’ put the boot in by challenging her to disarm her bodyguards (Classic FM, 17 ix, 13:00) – for the officially stated aim of Hillary’s ‘Democrats’ was, after all, to get guns out of private hands so Blacks could rampage freely across America to the delight – however short-lived – of pious ‘liberal’ Whites in leafy suburbs (their jacuzzis fenced with the razor wire which they proposed to forbid at their country’s border with drug-crazed rapist Mexico which itself annually expelled 300K Central and South Americans fleeing the awfulness of their own Catholic-Communist countries).


Having chosen to avoid the issue of immigration (a proxy for the Black & Muesli takeover of London and the Midlands of England), and thus lost bigtime electorally in 2015-6, the ‘moderate’ [Blairite] and Marxist [Corbynite] wings of British Labour – having already lost Scotland through lack of nationalism and of concern for low taxation – brought their internal squabbles to a high point on BBC TV’s flagship ‘Question Time.’

September 17 2016, 12:01am, The Times:

A televised row over the future of Labour between Alastair Campbell, the party’s former press secretary, and John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, escalated into a heated confrontation off air, it has emerged.

Tempers were so fraught that onlookers feared the pair would trade blows. Before appearing on BBC One’s Question Time on Thursday night they had made a tentative agreement to steer clear of personal attacks.

The pact swiftly broke down as Mr McDonnell accused Mr Campbell of destroying trust in politics. The former spin doctor [for Tony Blair] hit back, claiming that Mr McDonnell and his hard-left allies were destroying the Labour Party.

With tensions running high a week before the results of the Labour leadership contest are announced, the pair continued their spat backstage. Mr Campbell attacked Mr McDonnell for breaking his commitment not to engage in personal attacks. He told him his supporters were killing the party.

Witnesses said the row ended with Mr Campbell storming off after being called a “f***ing a***hole” by the shadow chancellor....


That Europe was being “invaded” was stated frankly by the former Oz Prime Minister Tony Abbott. The Queensman told a group of European conservatives the migrant crisis afflicting the continent had the "look of a peaceful invasion" as he urged European leaders to adopt Australia's strict turn-back policy.

In an address to the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists in Prague, Mr Abbott said it was "more important than ever to be brave" and a post-Brexit Britain and Europe needed to consider immigration changes.

In pointed reference to the problems of European countries under Germany’s Fourth Reich, Mr Abbott said a country that could not control who entered its territory "will eventually lose control of its future".

Prominent Labourite and Privy Councillor Keith Vaz, Britain’s longest-standing ‘Asian’ (in fact Indian [Goan-parented]) parliamentarian, stood down as Chairman of the prestigious Home Office Select Committee of the Commons when the Sunday Mirror (4 ix) front-paged its ‘sting’ proof of his using rent boys and hard drugs – no doubt to the embarrassment of his wife and children.

Cambridge-graduated lawyer Vaz, 60, had said he was a washing machine salesman called Jim. The unctuous though probably hardworking expense-claimer had first come to wide attention for his censorious support of book-burning Mueslis. Wikipedia:

Shortly after being elected in 1989, Vaz led a march of several thousands of Muslims in Leicester calling for Salman Rushdie's book The Satanic Verses to be banned. According to Rushdie's autobiography Joseph Anton, as quoted by Douglas Murray in The Spectator, Vaz had earlier promised his support against the fatwa. Vaz said, in that phone conversation, that what had happened was ‘appalling, absolutely appalling,’ and promised his ‘full support’.

A few weeks later, however, he was one of the main speakers at a demonstration against The Satanic Verses attended by over three thousand Muslims, and described that event as ‘one of the great days in the history of Islam and Great Britain.’

The [left but robustly low-class] Mirror’s exposé had been triggered by Vaz saying he would advocate decriminalization of brothels and their ‘sex workers.’ {A modern ‘liberal’ in thought and deed! – Rushdie needed to spend three years hiding in Oxford colleges from the likes of Vaz before MI5 estimated that the mad-Muesli threat to his life had abated.

Needless to say, MSM quickly forgot/suppressed Britain’s first intimation of Muesli invasion; but ordinary mortals remembered, so in 1996 I received the occasional phone call of support for The g Factor from ‘Salman Rushdie’....}


Text from an inflight Air China magazine posted on social media prompted outrage among the righteous after it was noticed to warn passengers to London that “precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people” (Guardian, 7 ix).

The text, tweeted by Beijing-based producer Haze Fan of US news channel CNBC, added: “We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling.”

Srindopakeshi MPs in London were promptly forthcoming to insist their own ‘Asian’ areas were safe {since proclivities for forced marriages, honour killings, female ‘cutting’, and drug-fuelled paedophilic prostitution did not target Chinese visitors....}.
The airline was China’s flag carrier and had two flights a day from Beijing to Heathrow. It operated a total of 98 international routes. Figures from VisitBritain showed the number of trips to the UK from China rose by 46% last year to 270,000. Total expenditure from these visits was estimated at £586m and the average length of stay was 15 nights.

    The resulting British outcry elicited an apology and withdrawal of the advert by Wings of China; but the rest of the Chinese media blamed Britain’s “hypocrisy” in trying to defend its bizarre immigration policies (Daily Telegraph, 9 ix).


 In a symbolic victory for realistic educational elitism, Yukay’s new PM Mendacious May – who had done nothing in her first two months of office except buy a few large pearl necklaces – let it be known she would graciously consider thinking about allowing the creation of a few new so-called grammar schools in England.

 Rejoicing among ‘Conservatives’ was unconstrained at this possible deviation from fifty years of lib-left educational dogma – though it was noteworthy that resultant frenetic discussion in MSM involved virtually no mention of IQ, let alone the g factor or The g Factor, and that the new acknowledgment of the need for educational selection by something other than house prices and religious pretensions (‘On your knees to skip the fees,’ parents joked) had to be cloaked in blarney saying the possible change – if allowed by Britain’s gormless parliamentarians (chiefly concerned to overthrow ophalmologist Basher Assad, to avoid confronting Muesli mediaevalism, to destroy the UK’s energy supplies and to turn every back garden into a rat- and badger-infested rubbish heap of unemptied bins) – would “focus” on providing “inclusive” grammar schools for all (and especially for children from poor ooops disadvantaged backgrounds).

A bright spot was that England’s elderly egalitarian ‘chief inspector of schools’ felt obliged to warn that MM’S plans “threatened up to 20 years of progress in the education system” (Times, 9 ix) – “progress” that had seen Britain’s position in international school league tables slide to a dismal 40th.


 As Donald Trump’s statesmanlike visit with the President of Mexico paid off in improved poll ratings, a tired Hillary Clinton -- downed by a poor TV quizzing and by coughing fits -- resorted to insulting Trump supporters as ‘racists, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes and Islamophobes’ – a “basket of deplorables”*. “Some of those folks,” she added in a talk to LGBTQs, “they are irredeemable.”

She soon apologized as advisers warned against thus alienating millions of Americans with her predictable political correctness; but her increasingly notable lameness and staleness were remarked by star US rightist Pat Buchanan (9 ix):

"....Donald Trump's message has begun to come through — loud, clear and consistent.  He will secure the border. He will renegotiate the trade deals that have been killing U.S. manufacturing and costing American jobs. He will be a law-and-order president who will put America first. He will keep us out of wars like Iraq. He will talk to Vladimir Putin, smash ISIS, back the cops and the vets, and rebuild the military

    Other than being the first woman president, what is the great change that Hillary Clinton offers America?  The Clinton campaign has a big, big problem.

* ‘Old Deplorables’ could prove a good title for The Donald’s supporters. -- Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany (‘Kaiser Bill’), who was famously dismissive of British soldiery, allegedly issued an order on 19 August 1914 to "exterminate ... the treacherous English and walk over General French's contemptible little army". Hence, in later years, the proud survivors of the victorious regular army dubbed themselves ‘The Old Contemptibles.’

The University of Chicago sent new students a blunt statement opposing some of the hallmarks of campus political correctness (New York Times, 27 viii). “Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called trigger warnings, we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own,” John Ellison, dean of students, wrote to incoming undergrads.

It was a not-so-veiled rebuke to the protests calling for limits on what kinds of speech should be condoned on campus, and who should be allowed to speak, that had rocked Yale, Wesleyan, Oberlin and many other universities.

Some alumni, dismayed by the trend, had withheld donations from their alma maters. The Chicago letter echoed policies that were already in place there and at a number of other universities calling for “the freedom to espouse and explore a wide range of ideas.” But its stark wording, coming from one of the nation’s leading universities, and in a routine correspondence that usually contained nothing more contentious than a dining hall schedule, felt to people on all sides like a statement.

    Kevin Gannon, a history professor at Grand View University in Des Moines, dismissed the letter on his website as “a manifesto looking for an audience,” one that “relies on caricature and bogeymen rather than reason and nuance.”

But the Heritage Foundation wrote on Facebook that the letter “will make you stand up and cheer”; and the New York Magazine reckoned ([/daily/intelligencer/2016/08/the-university-of-chicagos-anti-safe-space-letter-matters.html]26 viii) “The U.Chicago letter could be a useful nudge to help get other, more timorous university administrators to stand up and do their jobs.”


The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, was obliged to postpone announcement of her candidacy for her country’s 2017 elections amid serious disquiet among her ruling coalition partners at her “welcome policy” towards refugees (Sunday Times, 28 viii). Der Spiegel, the influential German news magazine, claimed that the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), ‘junior’ partners of Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU), had still to endorse Merkel as their joint candidate. The Reichskanzlerin had hoped to be confirmed at her own party’s conference in December, but this might have to be postponed. The German general election was expected in September 2017. Merkel, chancellor since 2005, was expected by cognoscenti metrowallahs to seek a fourth term at the helm of German Empire IV.

    Merkel’s latest woes came at the end of a week in which she heard first hand of the impact of her policy on her neighbours. The German leader met 15 EU leaders in Berlin and in Italy, Estonia, Poland and the Czech Republic. Her “grand tour” was ostensibly to prepare for a summit in Slovakia on September 16th at which the 27 remaining EU members would agree a joint stance on Brexit. Britain was not invited.

    Instead, the pious but powerful Merkel was forced to listen to a tirade of complaints from central European countries resisting attempts to take in more A/A migrants. Even the defence minister of Austria, Germany’s closest ally, voiced direct criticism of Merkel’s stance on immigration. “Germany must say clearly: the borders are closed,” said Hans Peter Doskozil.

Viktor Orban, Hungary’s fervently anti-migration prime minister, vowed to turn the fence that he had erected along the border with Serbia in an effort to stop asylum seekers into a “robust defence system.” “The borders cannot be protected with flowers and cuddly toys, but need policemen, soldiers and weapons,” he said.


50K signatures of north-Parisian property owners were quickly forthcoming in protest against a socialist scheme to house A/A migrants in wooden shacks near apartment blocks where flats often cost £3M (Daily Mail, 1 ix). Evidently the joys of diversity and multiculti integration were not on the agenda of the good republicans, who said they were apprehensive of the noise, filth and crime that would be involved – not to mention the likely reduction in the value of their bijou homes.

“There will be two migrant camps, one for men only, and one for women and children,” said Ms Hidalgo, the socialist mayorette who was a close ally of President Francois Hollande and had to deal with the 100 new A/A’s who arrived daily in Paris demanding food and shelter. The French capital was already inundated with migrants who slept rough among their discarded rubbish in city parks, or under flyovers or railway bridges.


  As Mad Multiculti Mutti Merkel found herself in only third place in north German elections (behind both Social Democrats and the anti-A/A-immigrant Alternative for Germany), historian Tim Stanley went probably further than any other major Western columnist in identifying and delineating the widespread rise of nationalism and the decline of out-of-control ‘liberalism’ which had done so much to generate the tyrannous anti-racism under which the world cowered (Daily Telegraph, 3 ix). A sample, on PeeCee:

" recent decades liberals have used the state to promote political correctness. At best it’s a new code of manners for a multicultural society. At worst, it is thought-policing, attempting to make people say things they don’t really think. Prejudices have not been so much confronted as suppressed.

....The communists made the mistake of believing they could make everyone equal by declaring them to be so. Liberals thought society was more tolerant because they banned vile words from the public sphere. Only now are liberals learning that this is not how human beings work. The revival of nationalism might indicate that people do still define themselves by ethnicity.

    Or maybe it doesn’t. It’s also possible that voters are reacting rationally – rather than emotionally – to policy failure. Which brings us to Brexit. Since the June 23 referendum, liberals have hit us with academic papers, speeches, TV documentaries etc analysing why the British people voted Leave, and the answer seems to be everything from racism to class to love of imperial weights and measures.

    Few liberals have yet to concede that it might have had something to do with the EU being rubbish. The EU, the greatest liberal project of them all, simply doesn’t work. There’s nothing inherently liberal about trying to make 28 countries operate as one, but liberals chose to make it their crusade. The British see its flaws and voted out.

    It’s possible that the same cold calculation lies behind the success of Donald Trump. Polls suggest that a significant proportion of his voters don’t actually like him. But they’re angry at disappearing jobs, ceaseless wars and illegal immigration. They look at Hillary Clinton, one of the West’s last true liberals left standing, and they see someone responsible for a lot of their problems. On balance, they sigh, better him than her.

    For me, I would prefer to praise liberalism than see it buried. It has done a lot of good for civilisation; many of its tenets are civilisation. But political traditions have to adapt to survive. Liberals, alas, have refused to accept their mistakes. They prefer to cast them as moral necessities and question the decency of those who challenge them. Their opponents are not all animals. Their ex-voters are not all monstrous fools. And liberals must learn that you’ll never win a voter over if you keep calling them stupid"


 Prominent Labourite and Privy Councillor Keith Vaz, Britain’s longest-standing ‘Asian’ (in fact Indian [Goan-parented]) parliamentarian, stood down as Chairman of the Home Office Select Committee of the Commons when the Sunday Mirror (4 ix) front-paged its ‘sting’ proof of his using rent boys and hard drugs – no doubt to the embarrassment of his wife and children. Cambridge-graduated lawyer Vaz, 60, had said he was a washing machine salesman called Jim. The unctuous though probably hardworking expense-claimer had first come to wide attention for his censorious support of book-burning Mueslis. Wikipedia:

"Shortly after being elected in 1989, Vaz led a march of several thousands of Muslims in Leicester calling for Salman Rushdie's book The Satanic Verses to be banned. According to Rushdie's autobiography Joseph Anton, as quoted by Douglas Murray in The Spectator, Vaz had earlier promised his support against the fatwa. Vaz said, in that phone conversation, that what had happened was ‘appalling, absolutely appalling,’ and promised his ‘full support’.

A few weeks later, however, he was one of the main speakers at a demonstration against The Satanic Verses attended by over three thousand Muslims, and described that event as ‘one of the great days in the history of Islam and Great Britain.’

The [left but robustly low-class] Mirror’s exposé had been triggered by Vaz saying he would advocate decriminalization of brothels and their ‘sex workers.’ {A modern ‘liberal’ in thought and deed! – Rushdie needed to spend three years hiding in Oxford colleges from the likes of Vaz before MI5 estimated that the mad-Muesli threat to his life had abated. Needless to say, MSM quickly forgot/suppressed Britain’s first intimation of Muesli invasion; but ordinary mortals remembered, so in 1996 I received the occasional phone call of support for The g Factor from ‘Salman Rushdie’....}

As the Syrian etc. invasion of Merkel-mad Germany proceeded apace, even Muslis were shocked by idealistic Western tolerance of child marriage. German law generally mandated 18 as the minimum age for marriage, but Bavaria alone was reckoned to be hosting some 700 child brides, and a court in Bamberg regularized a marriage of a 24-yr Muselman to his 14-yr cousin as showing a proper respect for Syrian culture (Sunday Times, 21 viii).

“This is an appalling decision,” complained Jasvinder Sanghera, founder of Karma Nirvana, a charity helping children, girls and women to escape forced marriage and abuse. “My worry is that this sets a precedent and that it could happen in other countries too. Recognising cultural traditions does not mean accepting the unacceptable. These are children and this is paedophilia.”


 Seeking to regain the presidency of France – which he had lost in 2011 because his affair with the 3”-taller pop warbler Carla Bruni had distracted him from suppressing (let alone reversing) the 5M-strong Islamist invasion of France – the immigrant-fathered and Jewish-mothered ‘conservative’ Nicolas Sarkozy revealed his plan for harmonious race relations in France: to take the opposite approach to the UK. Mr Sarkozy laid out his vision for harmony-by-integration in a book, Tout Pour la France (Everything for France).

He wrote that his country was swamped with immigrants and that its national identity had been damaged by the tyranny of minorities. But he added: “We are not Anglo-Saxons who allow communities to live side by side while ignoring one another. It is time to engage in determined combat against multiculturalism.” Newcomers must embrace French ways,” he declared. They must assimilate “not just with nationality but also with values, culture and way of life” (Times, 24 viii).

France had long liked to contrast its ‘model’ of republican cultural integration with vague Anglo-Saxon acceptance of diversity. {In fact, both France and the UK – whatever their ‘philosophies’ -- dealt with their Mueslis chiefly by ghetto-ization.}  France had until recently been moving towards greater tolerance but the pendulum swung back after Islamist terror attacks began four years ago and Marine Le Pen’s right-wing National Front surged in popularity to 20+%.

    So the penitent Sarko promised for 2017 to oblige newcomers to sign an “assimilation pact”. He would end the right of family members to join immigrants and would close the door to people who tried to come to France for economic reasons. Muslim preachers would come under the authority of the interior ministry and thousands of known radicals would be locked up or tagged. Pork-free menus would be ended in schools and head-covering banned in universities.

Agreeing he opposed “rampant Islamisation,” he demanded that a ll Muslims speak French, that they be denied special times for using swimming pools, and that – if not in work or education – they be conscripted (Telegraph, 26 viii). France was at war with extremism, he said in a substantial speech at Châteaurenard: “War is war and we have to win.”

He hoped to exploit dissatisfaction with socialist President Hollande, whose popularity ratings were close to a historical low, but also to grab voters for 2017 from Marine Le Pen’s National Front. Mr Sarkozy also promised a new EU treaty with tougher frontier controls. He thus hoped to resist calls for the closure of mosques and the straightforward expulsion of criminal, unemployed, illiterate, welfare-dependent and multi-sprogged Mueslis.

Socialist Prime Minister Manual Valls wrote on his Facebook page that denouncing the burkini “in no way puts into question individual freedom” and was really about denouncing “fatal, retrograde Islamism” – thus splitting French conservatives, nationalists and 50% of French socialists from the Parisian metrosexual elite and its ‘Council of State’ which had denounced the burkini ban.


Commemorating top academic race realist Glayde Whitney, Florida State University, American Renaissance (21 viii) nicely re-published his fascinating and helpful 1999 paper on genetic race differences in humans. An extract:

....Some people in the scientific literature argue that it is a vast oversimplification to think of “Africans” as a single race — they emphasize that there is tremendous genetic differentiation, and resultant biological differences, among the native inhabitants of Africa. And that is correct, up to a point.

After all, the continent of Africa is a big place; it is the second-largest continent, with much environmental variation. It contains some of the driest and some of the most humid habitats on earth. Also some of the hottest. It has lowlands and highlands, sea level jungles and snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro. So it should come as no surprise that largely primitive people, still divided into tribes, show lots of genetic differentiation. This is a typically primitive condition of humanity.

Thousands of years ago when Europeans were still largely tribal breeding groups there was also more genetic difference between different groups — though the different races of European Caucasians are still evident to some extent. The fact remains that although there is genetic difference among Africans, as a group they hang together and are relatively very different from everyone else.

It is useful, however, to separate North Africa from what is usually called Sub-Saharan Africa. The Sahara desert is a serious geographical barrier. North of the desert, all across the southern shore of the Mediterranean, the inhabitants are largely Caucasian. In the main we know where they came from, and often we know when. For instance the Phoenicians, ancestors of modern Lebanese, colonized sections of the coast.

Later, Germanic tribes from Europe invaded and settled. The Arabs swept through. So today a hybrid, largely Caucasian population with some Negroid admixture, inhabits North Africa. The illustration on the previous page that shows the large split between Africans and all other groups is based on Sub-Saharan Africans.

Let us now look at genetic distances within the African cluster.  The top four groups — labeled Pygmy, W. African, Bantu, and Elongate (also known as Nilotic) are the Negro race of traditional anthropology and are referred to below as Blacks. There is substantial gene flow among them but also racial differentiation as indicated by the genetic distances.

Somewhat different from the Blacks are the Ethiopian and Hottentot peoples. They are more brownish and yellow than black in skin color and are thought by some to be remnants of an ancient pre-Negroid population. The recent expansion of Blacks, mostly Bantus and Elongates, has exterminated most of these people. Their genes remain concentrated in the Horn of Africa — Ethiopia and Somalia, and as a dwindling remnant in Southern Africa. The Ethiopians are today a hybrid population, with substantial Negroid and Semitic gene admixture.

What I have here labeled Hottentot are often referred to as the Khoids, or Khoisanids, which means Hottentots and Bushman. The remaining Bushman are desert gleaners while the Hottentots herd cattle. The Hottentot race is almost all gone today, replaced and exterminated in recent times by the invading Blacks. There was some intermating, however; enough so that even in America you can sometimes see the results of Hottentot genes.

In many characteristics Hottentots are biologically specialized for life in a hot and dry climate. One of these distinctive adaptations is steatopygia, which literally means “fat buttocks.” This is a solution to the problem of how to store fat in preparation for times of little food and still be able to shed body heat in a hot climate. Most of the fat is bundled in one place — the buttocks — leaving the rest of the body lean so as to make it easy to lose heat. It is the human equivalent of the camel’s hump.

By contrast, Eurasian women put on a layer of subcutaneous fat all over the body. It is better than a fur coat in providing insulation against the arctic cold but makes it harder to lose heat in a hot climate. These differences in fat storage strategies are biological realities of race. Another biological peculiarity of the Hottentots is what is delicately called the “Hottentot apron” — four-and-a-half inches of dangling labia. This, too, is a biological reality....

{Glayde was a courageous as well as dutiful scholar and, along with Richard Lynn and myself, helped in the last great battle in London for free speech about genetic and racial differences -- a 1999 battle sadly resulting in closure of what was to be the last Galton Institute conference having any significant race-realistic psychological component.}


 Hungary would build a new, “more massive” fence on its southern borders to defend against a possible surge in the number of would-be migrants, said the prime minister, Viktor Orbán (Guardian, 26 viii). Orbán, who previously described migrants as “poison”, said on state radio that there might soon be a “greater need for security” and the fortified barrier would be able to stop “several hundreds of thousands of people” at the same time, if needed.

He said such a surge could take place if, for example, Turkey allowed the millions of ‘refugees’ living there to head for western Europe. “Then, if we can’t do it nicely, we have to hold them back by force,” Orbán said. “And we will do it, too.”

Hungary built fences protected with razor wire on its southern borders with Serbia and Croatia in 2015, when nearly 400,000 people passed through the country on their way west. The fences had greatly slowed the flow of people entering Hungary, which was also beefing up its police force with 3,000 new “border hunters” to tighten control at the fences and introducing legislation that would allow officials to return migrants to Serbia if they were caught within five miles (8km) of the border.


Trailing in US polls -- and having failed to explain how he would root out political correctness from state-funded universities, persuade Mexico to pay for a 5K-mile wall, and keep refugee-generating Solunnis and Shitites from each other’s throats -- Republican nominee ‘The Donald’ began to make inner-city gun violence and the promise of law and order a central plank of his campaign (Observer, 28 viii).

In his speech to the GOP convention in Cleveland in July, he had said: “In the President’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2,000 people have been the victims of shootings this year alone. And almost 4,000 have been killed in the Chicago area since [Barack Hussein Obama] took office.” According to the Chicago police department, Trump said, homicides were up 49% in 2016. Chicago recorded 473 homicides for all of 2015. At least 2,702 people had been shot in the city in 2016, according to a tally kept by the Chicago Tribune newspaper.

The Tribune also published details of shooting incidents involving police officers in the city between 2010 and 2015. The vast majority of those shot in such incidents, the newspaper found, were Black men or boys. By August, Trump was developing his law-and-order theme into a concerted – if quixotic, given his campaign’s flirtation with the ‘far right’ – attempt to win African-American support.

Addressing a largely White audience at a rally in Michigan, he said: “At the end of four years, I guarantee you I will get over 95% of the African American vote. What do you lose by trying something new like Trump?” In Iowa, he said “There are millions of African-Americans in this country who have succeeded” but also that government had failed Black communities, with almost 40% of African American children living in poverty.

For good measure,Trump also claimed that his rival Hillary Clinton was a “bigot” who didn’t care about minority communities. {At this rate of conciliatory progress, The Donald might even prise enough cash out of the GOP by November to begin to match the vast sums available to the Clintons from globalized peecee slavedrivers; but just what national problems he could solve would have got lost in the fog of party-political warfare.

In line with Trump’s new-found moderation, Britain’s UKIP leader-in-semi-retirement, Nigel Farage, was given three minutes to address Trump’s troops in Mississippi – for ‘far right’ Farage, brave and longsuffering though he was, could be relied on to avoid such terms as ‘race,’ ‘genes’ and ‘IQ.’}

Chigozie Obioma, writing in "Foreign Policy", August 9, 2016 says:

"....Early African-American intellectuals and cultural elites saw that the future of their race could not be advanced by endless protests or marches of “equality” or “justice.” It could only be done through the restoration of the trampled dignity of the black man. Great men like Marcus Garvey, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Malcolm X all knew that a people is only respected when it has a nation worthy of respect. A man who lives in a shack cannot expect to be treated with respect at a palace. They knew that for us to reclaim power we must first reclaim dignity and that this comes through the construction of a solid black state with a demonstrable level of development and prosperity–and which can stand as a powerful advocate for the global black.

    Today, no such state exists.

Nigeria, the most populous black nation on Earth, is on the brink of collapse. The machineries that make a nation exist, let alone succeed, have all eroded. One might argue that the nation’s creation by self-seeking white imperialists engendered its failure from the beginning, as I did in my recent novel. But this is only a part of the cause. A culture of incompetence, endemic corruption, dignified ineptitude, and, chief among all, destructive selfishness and greed has played a major role in its unravelling. The same, sadly, can be said for most other African nations. States like Zimbabwe, Cameroon, and Equatorial Guinea are farcical democracies ruled by men who exclusively cater to their interests and those of their clipped circles....."


The city of Cannes criminalized the wearing of the embonpoint-covering ‘burkini’ on its beaches, citing not any terror threat but just the symbolism of the saggy sacking which gave other bathers a startling reminder of Islamists’ hostile insistence that they would not be integrating with the modern West and its post-1900 general acceptance of female equality. The  ban was subsequently upheld by a local court (Guardian, 16 viii) and supported by socialist President Hollande.

Laurence Rossignol, the minister for women’s rights, condemned the full-body swimsuits as “profoundly archaic” and a political manifesto for another form of society. Manuel Valls, the country's Prime Minister, also attacked the burkini for 'not being compatible with the values of France and the Republic.'

Some ten burkinied women were chucked off beaches in Cannes and nearby places and several were fined £32; and an Algerian businessman game for confrontation with Republican secularism said he would pay all such fines for Mueslies, challenging France to dispense prison sentences instead of useless financial penalties.

Valls went to Marseille to say that burkinis were “expressions of an archaic vision of women in public places … The burkini is not a new swimwear fashion; it’s the transmission of a political project, against society, founded notably upon the subjection of women. Some people try to portray those who wear them as victims, as though we were calling liberty into question. But there is no liberty to subjugate women.”

    In nearby Corsica, natives expressed their own rejection of the symbolic aggression of the burkini by taking photos of Mueslie women in their sacks – provoking retaliation by north-African heavies and a riot involving some 500 which went on for hours till the Islamists retreated to their ghetto surrounded by a cordon of 100 police. Cars were burned, seven people were badly injured and five men were arrested on charges of armed assault and faced trial in September.


 Leaked ISICK documents from Syria showed that 70% of the ultra-brutal outfit’s jihad recruits had hardly any knowledge of Islam, and that some even had to read The Koran for Dummies to learn about the religion. An analysis of recruitment forms from the terror group revealed that many IS militants did not even have a basic knowledge of the Koran or hadith -- the sayings and actions of Mahomet (Daily Mail, 15 viii).

    The documents were acquired by the Syrian opposition site Zaman al-Wasl and relayed to the Associated Press. Out of 3,000 recruits, they showed that only 24% had even an 'intermediate knowledge' of Islam with just 5% considered 'advanced students' of the religion. Only five recruits overall were listed as having memorised the Koran – the basic duty of pious Islamists.

    At the height of the ISICK drive for foot soldiers in 2013 and 2014, typical recruits had included a group of Frenchmen who went bar-hopping with their recruiter back home, a recent European convert who described himself as queer, and two Britons who ordered The Koran for Dummies and Islam for Dummies from Amazon to prepare themselves for blood-soaked jihad. Their intake process complete, they were grouped in safe houses as a stream of ISICK imams came in to indoctrinate them, according to court testimony.

    An apparently idiotic and spaced-out 32-year-old European recruit, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: 'I realised that I was in the wrong place when they began to ask me questions on these forms like "When you die, who should we call?'' He added he thought he was joining a group to fight President Bashar Assad and help Syrians, not the Islamic State. The former recruit said new recruits were shown ISICK propaganda videos on Islam, and the visiting imams repeatedly praised martyrdom.

    The terror group's most notorious new supporters appeared to have an equally tenuous link with religion. Mohamed Lahouaiyej Bouhlel, who killed 85 people by plowing a truck into a Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France, was described by family and neighbors as indifferent to religion, volatile and prone to drinking sprees, with a love for salsa dancing and a reported boyfriend.

    Other recruits included 10 young men from the eastern French city of Strasbourg, all recruited by a man named Mourad Fares. One of them, Karim Mohammad-Aggad, described bar-hopping in Germany with Fares. He told investigators that IS recruiters used 'smooth talk' to persuade him. He'd travelled with his younger brother and friends to Syria in late 2013. Two died in Syria, and within a few months, seven returned to France and were arrested.

Mohammad-Aggad's brother, 23-year-old Foued, returned to Paris and was one of the three men who stormed the Bataclan dance club in a night of attacks November 13, 2015, that killed 130 people. Mohammed-Aggad told a court, before being sentenced to nine years in prison: 'My religious beliefs had nothing to do with my departure. Islam was used to trap me like a wolf.'

IS data shows Karim and his brother Foued were among eight in the Strasbourg group listed as having only 'basic' knowledge of Sharia. Expressing a common sentiment shared by many Europeans of North African descent, Mohammed-Aggad told the court he felt like an immigrant in Algeria and 'a dirty Arab' in France. After just a few months in Syria, he said he left ISIS because he was treated by the extremists as an 'apostate' — someone who had renounced his religion.

    When pressed by the judge on his knowledge of Shariah and how ISIS implements it, Mohammad-Aggad, a former gas station attendant, appeared dumbfounded, saying repeatedly: 'I don't have the knowledge to answer the question.' One of his co-defendants, Radouane Taher, was also pressed by the judge on whether beheadings carried out by the ISIS group conformed to Islamic law. He couldn't say for sure, answering: 'I don't have the credentials.'

    The trial of longtime friends Mohammed Ahmed and Yusuf Sarwar, from the British city of Birmingham, revealed the 22-year-olds had ordered The Koran for Dummies and Islam for Dummies books in preparation for their trip to join beheadists in Syria. They were arrested on their return to Britain and convicted in 2014 of terrorism offenses.

    Patrick Skinner, a former CIA case officer with extensive experience with Midle East extremist organisations, said some people claim allegiance to IS out of religious belief, but that most who join, including those from the West, are people 'reaching for a sense of belonging, a sense of notoriety, a sense of excitement.'

{But such speculation was no more likely than a Freudian ‘death wish’ hypothesis: that the poor youngsters – who doubtless shared the typical Arabian low IQ – were careless about their own lives, their Muslim polygamy-aspirant and dominating fathers having allowed them no sense of their being especially loved or important.}


 Donald  Trump’s modest plan to suspend visitations from Muslim countries (till a national understanding and plan was formulated) turned out to enjoy historical support.

Politico, 17 viii:

"....Since before the founding [of America] even, U.S. policies about whom the country chooses to welcome and reject have changed in response to changing conditions. As early as 1645, the Massachusetts Bay Colony prohibited the entry of poor or indigent persons. By the early 20th century, the country was filtering out people who had “undesirable” traits, such as epileptics, alcoholics and polygamists. Today, the naturalization oath demands that immigrants renounce allegiance to any foreign state. Even our Favorite Founding Father du jour, Alexander Hamilton (himself an immigrant), thought it was important to scrutinize whoever came to the United States. He wrote:

"To admit foreigners indiscriminately to the rights of citizens, the moment they put foot in our country . . . would be nothing less, than to admit the Grecian Horse into the Citadel of our Liberty and Sovereignty. . . . The United States have already felt the evils of incorporating a large number of foreigners into their national mass. . . . In times of great public danger there is always a numerous body of men, of whom there may be just grounds of distrust; the suspicion alone weakens the strength of the nation, but their force may be actually employed in assisting an invader.

In other words, immigration vetting is as American as apple pie.


Patriotic sentiment got an unexpected lift as lithe and likeable British gals lifted metal at the largely unwatched Olympic games in rape- and robbery-torn Rio. Matching the hysteria of the British press (and even of the usually sober if peecee Beeb), sports gurus in China, Australia, France and Germany whipped themselves into frothing rages at the Great-British breakthrough, floating accusations of legendary British perfidy – even though the spectacular British success had been largely due to ruthless elitism, concentrating available funds on high-performing young athletes in sports where more medals were available (cycling, gym, swimming, rowing) and giving them top British-developed technology and poached Oz coaches.

Amusingly, the national triumph (including Gold for tearful tennis champ and flag carrier, Anglo-Scot Andy Murray) made no mark on UK Labour leader ‘Jezza’ Corbyn, 69, who was revealed on TV to be hazy about the GB medals count, so preoccupied was he with his Trotskyite battle with social democrats and Blairites in his party (cf. the last great Labour rift of 1982 which equally excluded ‘Old Labour’ and resulted in Labour being out of power for fifteen years).

{The Labour Party had historically been an alliance in which intellectuals, pacifists, ‘antiracists’ and homophiliacs could win themselves votes by promising such practicalities as workers’ power, council houses, welfare and ‘ospitals. ‘Jezza’ had been passably well placed to continue the alliance since he himself was anti-EUSSR and thus attractive to the remaining White workers of Sunderland etc. But he decided to adopt the ‘reasonable’ position of metrosexuals on ‘Europe’ and to focus on fighting the cause of neo-Trot international socialism – now very much including hostility to Israel -- as against tired Blairites who had found no way of sorting out the murderous Solunnis and Shitites of the Middle East.

By declining to make Labour once more a ‘national welfare’ party, Corbyn thus ceded the field – leaving it to the ‘Conservatives’ whom leftists themselves had bullied into the new religion of PeeCee which so complemented greedy businessmen’s ‘globalizing’ ambitions.} In America, presidential contender Trump was happy to exude national welfarist spirit, promising jobs and jollies in pursuit of ‘making America great again.’

 Noting MSM’s tired habit of trying to rubbish ‘old White men’ and the fantastically prosperous, artistic, law-abiding and exploratory culture which they had created, Taki Magazine’s Jim Goad let fly (25 vii).

"The oniony-looking Rebecca Onion of Slate asserted that it made “no sense” to judge groups by their historical inventions, despite the fact that a given racial group’s level of technological innovation is tightly correlated with its relative success and prosperity. Writing for Salon, a certain Sarah Watts didn’t appear to be joking when she credited Africans for inventing “humanity.” (I suppose other inventions were hard to come by.) She also typed with a straight face that non-American and non-European “subgroups” like Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East “are almost solely responsible for what we consider modern society.”

    There are reams of evidence of technological innovations by the ancient Chinese, the ancient Indians, and the ancient Semites --  emphasis on the “ancient.”

    For example, the Chinese invented gunpowder. But for some reason these perennial warriors and kung-fu fighters weren’t savvy enough to use their invention as a weapon of war.

    The ancient Indians are widely credited with inventing the numerical system we currently use. But they certainly didn’t invent calculus like Newton and Leibniz did.

    Most uncomfortable for egalitarians and their ilk is that there are vast landmasses -- sometimes entire continents -- where the indigenous inhabitants have invented virtually nothing. Sub-Saharan Africans are not known for contributing much to rocket science, and black Americans are so underrepresented as inventors that everyone has heard a gazillion times about the mulatto who improved blood-storage methods and George Washington Carver’s wondrous dalliances with the magical peanut.

The so-called “Native Americans” are credited with inventing the spinning top, which somehow proved incapable of defending them against the white man and his guns.

And Australia’s aborigines? Well, let’s not talk about them, because they’d be embarrassed. Peruvians can take pride in developing the art of potato cultivation. And I’ve already covered the Mexicans and their nachos.


Even  as the multiculti-besotted, officially War-guilt-ridden dictatorial politicos of Europe counselled abject peecee submission to a fortnight of ‘mentally ill’ Muesli killings in France, Germany and Britain [where the 64-yr wife of a well-known Florida psychology professor was stabbed to death by a father-abandoned Black in central London’s leafy Russell Square] – supported by Rome’s socialist Il Papa and other ‘Christian’ freaks having no respect for freedom (even for the MSM-popular female freedom, i.e. pseudo-equality) – newspapers began to reveal extensive business contacts between America’s Trump and Russia’s Putin, giving hope that, as in WWII, the dafter ideas of mittel-Europa could be squashed – as they had been, largely, by Britain and allies since the Hundred Years War (with Parisian France).


 As the West’s latter-day religion of PeeCee daily reached new heights of condemning the slightest hints of racist, misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, fattist or other disablist realism, MSM’s originating campaign against paedophilia (which word MSM had learned to spell around 1995) had led to a 37-yr geography teacher in a north-London private school being hauled into court for unlikely crimes of ‘repeatedly and brutally raping’ a 14-yr pupil whom he had summoned into his multi-windowed classroom as she passed in her lunch breaks. (Acquitted in less than half an hour, the schoolmaster fell to his knees and wept as his ordeal by false accusation came to a close.) Columnist Rachel Johnson (sister of new Foreign Minister and Entertainer-in-Chief BoJo) managed to see the light (Daily Mail, 1 viii):

"[The prosecution of the teacher] was a waste of time, of money, and of a teacher’s precious reputation, and adds to a building sense that the huge surge in the reporting and processing of historic sexual abuse claims is turning into a bonanza, Klondike economy for lawyers and probably therapists, too."

{Well said, Rachel! By 2016, paedohysterical investigations, prosecutions and punishments were costing the UK £3M daily. Of course, PeeCee demanded the ruinous denunciations of computer-housed ‘abusive images’ and of ancient ‘inappropriate touching’ continue since they provided a cutting edge for the fatuous denunciations of ‘racist’ etc ‘remarks’ and sensible discrimination that were the real business of PeeCee’s moral crusade for cultural Marxism.}

{Paedohysterical excesses were also denounced in the Times by columnists Clare Foges and Melanie Phillips (2 viii) – denunciations from women that were vigorous and welcome, even if coming twenty years too late. High-level criticism of the tyrannical hysteria also seemed implicit in the successive resignation of three top female judges from vastly remunerated leadership of a planned government inquiry into forty years of alleged celebrity and establishment paedophilia: apparently the highly experienced judges saw no prospect of justice being possible in the overheated atmosphere which the UK’s feminoids and tabloids had created.

Columnist Charles Moore also provided a strong and detailed critique of what he had no doubt was a modern witch-hunt – complete with anonymity for accusers and acceptance of mere hearsay evidence (Telegraph, 6 viii). }


 As Turkey’s Muesli dictator Erdogging moved swiftly to lock up or sack scores of thousands of his relatively liberal opponents in line with Arab traditions (supposedly in revenge for the opponents mounting a 12-hour ‘coup’ against him), it turned out that quaint Muesli  ‘culture’ persisted in Berlin even after 50 years of Germany welcoming and hoping to integrate its age-old hoped-for allies (Times, 2 viii).

Germany is home to about three million people of Turkish descent, the largest such population outside Turkey.  They began arriving in the 1960s as guest workers invited to offset a shortage of manpower. Despite this long history, the overwhelming majority of Turks do not feel any German identity. Only about 15 per cent feel that Germany is more their home than Turkey, according to Info GmbH, a Berlin research firm. The figure was six points higher in 2009.

    There was a telling moment at Sunday’s rally in Cologne when a speaker called on the crowd to chant “We are Germany”. They answered with calls of Allahu akbar!

    Researchers say that young Turks are becoming more religious in order to establish an identity they feel deprived of in Germany.

    Three quarters of German Turks are Turkish citizens, even though nearly half have lived there for more than 20 years. German law bans dual citizenship for those aged over 18, which critics say deters integration. Parallel societies have grown in the big cities, where entire districts have Turkish pharmacies, doctors, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs. Many Turks spend their lives in a bubble, watching Turkish television, listening to Turkish radio and reading Turkish newspapers.


 Britain’s intelligence guru, Sir Francis Galton, was listed among the top 30 geniuses of relatively modern times in a new list drawn up by Chicago-based electrochemical engineer Libb Thims (Daily Mail, 3 viii). Altogether, seven Brits got into the top 30, in order of estimated IQ (using developmental criteria): Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell, Thomas Young [deciphered the Rosetta Stone], William Shakespeare, John Stuart Mill, Thomas Wolsey and Francis Galton. People of German origin did best, with Goethe, Einstein, Leibniz and Gauss appearing in the top 12. Famed for his work on meteorology, fingerprinting, prayer and female beauty as well as heredity, Galton was the most popular British intellectual of his day and managed to get his ‘heretical’ cousin Charles Darwin buried in Westminster Abbey.


Dismay among the West’s peecee establishment was unconfined as lower-class Whites rejected the contract which metropolitan pseudo-Marxist slavers and repeatedly bankrupt bankers had arranged (e.g. Taki’s Magazine, 2 viii). The idea had been that low-life Whites would accept hotel prisons, open-plan classrooms, non-existent policing [except of octogenarian and dead paedophiles], the abolition of the Royal Navy [except for its endless admirals] and subordination to the EUSSR [i.e. France] so long as they got jobs, council houses, pensions and national health care.

But the arrival of a million hardworking Poles, plus a sprinkling of gypsies, proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back after years of tolerance of Blacks and Paks: so, at the UK referendum, 70% of Labour-held constituencies had voted to LEAVE the carefully crafted Blairite world and to show Enoch had been  right (or, indeed, left – as he had sensationally announced after his fellow-Conservatives abandoned him).

In America, too, the peecee establishment – whether Democrat or Republican – was shocked, shocked by the blunt-speaking / dog-whistling national welfarist Donald Trump who – in a world of self-righteous slavers, tyrants, honour killers and rapist beheaders – proposed a return to the values of freedom, democracy, neighbourliness and good humour which lib-leftist traitors had abandoned.


Hollywood tough guy Clint Eastwood emptied both barrels in an interview with Esquire magazine, aiming squarely at those who had taken presidential candidate Donald Trump to task for racism and other, well, rough edges (Guardian, 5 viii). “He’s said a lot of dumb things,” the 82-yr actor and director said of the man who had pilloried Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants and women. “So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody -- the press and everybody -- is going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist’, and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it.”

This country, he said, is plagued by what he derided as “a pussy generation”, and he wasn’t talking about all those cute videos moms post on Facebook. Trump, the actor fumed, is “on to something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff,” Eastwood continued. “When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”


  After 22 years of being run by the communistic and anti-White African National Congress, South Africa’s voters moved sharply towards the main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (Observer, 7 viii). In nationwide local elections, the ANC lost its usual majority in most urban areas – home to the “clever Blacks” disliked by the ANC for their middle-class ways and capitalist sympathies.

To mask economic failings, the ruling ANC had run a negative and crudely racist campaign that aimed to paint the opposition DA as the party of apartheid. Campaigning in Nelson Mandela Bay,  SA’s President and kleptocrat Zuma called the DA “snakes, the children of the National party” and repeatedly referred to its young Black leader as a puppet of Whites.

{It was not uncommon for aspiring Blacks to welcome White presence and influence in their areas, for this helped supply a handy proportion of competent doctors and honest police.}

Twice, in 2008 and 2012, Americans had voted in half-Black Chicago agitator Barry Hussein Obarmy to solve their racial problems; but an ABC News poll found (17 vii) that almost two-thirds of those surveyed said race relations were now generally bad – a total reversal of the sentiment detected in the first weeks of Obama’s presidency. A majority said the problem was only getting worse.

Speaking in Dallas as Blacks killed cops on a daily basis – risking a police strike if not a civil war -- Obama candidly acknowledged the scale of the fears facing the US. “I’ve seen how inadequate words can be in bringing about lasting change,” Obama said, adjusting his grip on his lectern as he faltered slightly. “I’ve seen how inadequate my own words have been.”


Stereotypes of White US cops being trigger-happy with Blacks were confounded by new research (Washington Post, 19 vii):

The most sophisticated lab study of police shoot/don’t-shoot decisions to date, published this year in Criminology and Public Policy, undercuts the Black Lives Matter narrative about trigger-happy, racist cops. Washington State University researcher Lois James put 80 officers from the Spokane, Wash., police department in highly realistic video simulators of street scenarios.

Officers were confronted with potentially armed suspects identical in all aspects, including body language and weapon, except for their race. The test subjects were not told the purpose of the research, which was conducted between August 2012 and November 2013, before the issue of race in policing reached the fever pitch of prominence that it possesses today.

    The officers were three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects and took significantly longer to decide to shoot armed black suspects than armed white suspects. James hypothesized that officers were second-guessing themselves when confronting black suspects, due to their awareness of the potential negative repercussions of shooting a black suspect.

James’s finding that participants, in her words, “displayed significant bias favoring Black suspects” in their shooting decisions replicated the results of two previous studies she has run on shoot/don’t-shoot decisions.

    James’s work anticipated a much-discussed working paper by Harvard economist Roland Fryer. Fryer found that police officers in Houston were nearly 24 percent less likely to shoot blacks than whites (p. 50); he concluded that there was no evidence of racial discrimination in shootings there. In a data set comprising officer shootings from Dallas, Austin, Houston, Los Angeles and six Florida counties, he found that officers were 47 percent less likely to discharge their weapon without first being attacked if the suspect was black than if the suspect was white (p. 25), and that black and white victims of police shootings were equally likely to have been armed.


France’s empty verbalizers, socialists Pres.Hollande and PM Valls, found themselves booed by crowds at memorials for the 84 mown down in Nice by a pathetic macho-aspirant bisexual Muesli whose much-beaten wife had left him and whose employer had sacked him after he fell asleep at the wheel of his lorry – so he welcomed ISICK funding for his drug habits and for his transmission of impressive sums to his divorced parents in Tunisia.

One policeman – from a wheelchair – refused to shake his President’s hand. For, indeed, France’s politicians had done nothing to prevent the Muesli invasion. Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right Front National who polls forecast would reach the second round of next year’s election, said: “Nothing that we have proposed has been put in place. Considering the new nature of terrorism which is now a terrorism of opportunity ... the urgency is to attack the ideology on which this terrorism is based. And in this space, nothing has been done, absolutely nothing – no reintroduction of double punishment, nor depriving people of nationality, nor the closure of salafist mosques ... nor the banning of certain organisations. In truth, we are not at war. For the moment, we are in a war of words.”


Moved by the efforts of The Donald and his delightful retinue to maintain three days of ‘Trump’-chanting razmataz at the US Republican Congress in Cleveland, Ohio (‘Lock Her Up!’ was a popular chant whenever the name of ‘Crooked Hillary’ was mentioned), Holland’s anti-Islamofascist leader Geert Wilders understandably pointed to the 2016 year of success for Western nationalist movements as suggestive of what he called a ‘Patriotic Spring’ (Wall Street Journal, 21 vii).

Happily, the Trumpers issued – to applause -- several express blasts against ‘political correctness’ even though they remained politely obedient to peecee restrictions on the actual use of terms like ‘race,’ ‘Black,’ ‘White,’ ‘Asian,’ ‘IQ,’ ‘psychoticism,’ ‘criminality’ and ‘hyperbreeding.’

In this they were in turn a little braver than Britain’s new officially LEAVE government which, within days of taking office, abandoned all ‘targets’ for reducing mass immigration and settled for patriotic expression in sending skinamalinks PM Mendacious May for dinners in Berlin and Paris to build her up and to discuss whether BREXIT was BREXIT—a question to which eurocrat French President Hollande had a quick philosophical answer though Empress Merkel was more polite....


After decades of bullying once secular-controlled Turkey towards Western ethnicity-scorning democracy, the West found itself lumbered in Tukey with the ever-more-irate and unpredictable elected dictator Receipt-cheat Erdogging who had managed – with only 250 deaths -- to lock up 60K of his ‘putsch’ opponents in a single day, demanded extradition of an 80-yr-old ‘putsch’ leader from his retirement home in Pennsylvania, aimed to reintroduce the death penalty (feared by Western peecee politicos, who were mainly race traitors), threatened to tear up his deal with Empress Merkel to halt Syrian migrant flow, and made up with the Ruskies and Basher Assad.

In the circumstances, extending Russian control of the murderous Muesli Middle East – its problems exacerbated by Western ignoracist refusal to admit or adapt realistically to the eternal civil war between Solunnis and Shitites – looked just about hopeful. Why, in return for a sliver of caliphate linking them to mediaeval Sunni Saudi, the Turks might even be persuaded to be reasonable about the national ambitions of the Kurds! And Kenyan Obarmy’s lack of grip on world problems could hardly have been better illustrated.

Whether UK politicians could get round the ‘xenophobic’ LEAVE referendum demand of voters was answered as  Andrea Leadsom (q.v.) gave up her ambition to lead the ‘Conservative’ party. Her offence had been to allude to her mother-of-three status as being a helpful qualification in one seeking to run the country – and to fail to mention the compensating advantages of childlessness which had made Queen Elizabeth I, Benjamin Disraeli and Ted Heath such effective leaders in their day.

At a stroke, her withdrawal over a little realism, spared cuckservatives the image of ‘the nasty party’ which the Camoronian Theresa May had led them to fear; and restored them in a flash to being ‘the dreary party’ – an image with which the dolts were happier (preferring a ‘safety first’ subscription to PeeCee – as many a mother-of-three might....).

Fortunately, Leadsom’s retreat – reaffirming her party as one of polite peecee globalisers who would do anything for a quiet profit-making life – meant that the hopeless factions of the British ‘left’ had the opportunity to speak truth to power about the realities of biological human differences in race, sex, age, polygamy, criminality, stupidity and sexual orientation and to demand not fine peecee sentiments but tangible improvements.

At least one of Labour’s warring ‘progressives’ would surely seize the chance of adding separatism to its socialism and thus offering – as was happening all over Europe and America – a national welfarism that would would ensure the targeting of state largesse towards those who mde serious contributions to national objectives (not least by paying substantial sums in taxation).


After decades of being over-represented among shooters of White cops, Black cops, Whites in general and each other, US Blacks decided to be largely reasonable about a Black who had been radicalized  following dishonourable army discharge for sexual molestation, so, after the Dallas horror, protests, riots and looting of White shops was sporadic and accompanied by only a few killings of Whites. But verbal bellicosity was deemed necessary to distract attention from the Black slayer of six who had himself planned to become a cop until his racism (ooops, anti-racism) took over – as star Jewish columnist Melanie Phillips recorded (Times, 12 vii):

"....Last week the African American Defense League posted a message encouraging violence against police. Marchers in New York city chanted “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” Last August, Texas ‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters called for the “lynching” and “killing” of white people and white police officers. Until now, ‘Black Lives Matter’ has been treated with respect and hailed as a nascent civil rights movement.

    In fact, it suppresses rights and it is certainly anything but civil. On campus it silences free speech through pathologically sensitive “trigger alerts” that shut down debate and intimidate anyone deemed to be racially offensive.

    White liberals, who either agree that white society is profoundly racist or are terrified that they might be labelled racist if they object to this calumny, have never called out black power extremists for promoting prejudice. They call it instead anti-racism."


While the peoples of the UK found their EUSSR-rejecting (and thus nationalism-accepting) referendum result swiftly stolen from them by their ruling ‘Conservatives’ wangling one Moronic* (Theresa) May into the premiership so she could continue the peecee globalism that had suited PMs Blair, Brown and Cameron and all employers of slave labour, the USA was proving it was made of sterner stuff.

The flamboyant realist Donald Trump (q.v.) overtook ‘Crooked’ Hillary Clinton in the critical election battlegrounds of Florida and Pennsylvania after the former secretary of state came under withering criticism from the FBI (Times, 14 vii). In Florida, where the 2000 election was decided, in June Mrs Clinton had led her Republican rival for the White House by eight points; but by July she trailed him by 42 per cent to 39 per cent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

‘The Donald’ also led by 43 per cent to 41 per cent in Pennsylvania, where the Democratic nominee had won every election since 1988. The two candidates were tied in Ohio, another crucial swing state. (Since 1960 no presidential candidate had won the White House without winning at least two of Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio.)

    French people, too, were reported as becoming enraged by Muesli atrocities, failure to integrate, continued invasion and tireless overbreeding at public expense. They rated their socialist President Hollande as the worst leader in the entire history of the Fifth Republic.

*And most likely Mendacious. A day after appointing her anti-Brexit Cabinet, MM flew to Edinburgh to assure First Clottish Minister Codface that MM would not ask Brussels for UK freedom until Scotland agreed – i.e. never, La Sturgeon could say.

The meeting of the two largely socialist wymmin went well, since Codface was relieved to gather she could avoid another referendum on Scottish independence which the SNP would have once more lost (thanks to ‘Scotland’s oil’ having become near-worthless and thus unable to make up for the London largesse which Scotland had enjoyed for a century).


In a world first, Poland’s Interior Minister [cf. Home Secretary] became the first elected Western leader to condemn Multiculti-PeeCee publicly (Daily Mail, 16 vii). Commenting on the carnage in Nice, where a Muesli petty criminal of Tunisian origin had hired a lorry to mow down Frenchies (the immediate death toll was 84) celebrating the storming of the Bastille which had led on the murderous ending of France’s monarchy, aristocrats, bishops and millions of devout priests and peasants but also to the ‘glorious’ Napoleonic France of survivors’ and descendants’ fond imaginations, Minister Mariusz Blaszczak blamed France and Brussels for “decades of multiculturalism and political correctness” and called for tough action on jihad – especially singling out France’s tolerance of no-go areas for police in the country’s many human dustbins ooops ghettoes.

{Actually, ghettoes had worked passably well in Britain, touch wood. Pakis are left to fuel the drug needs of UK weenies in return for sexual favours – though not perhaps to murder them. But Britain’s Mueslis were Oriental and recalled Britain saving them from Hindus, whereas those in France were Black and recalled France’s endless, brutal and thankless war to retain control of North Africa.}

 In the latest move to deny citizenship to those who balk at Swiss culture, authorities rejected the naturalization application of two Muslim girls who refused to take school swimming lessons because boys were present (USA Today, 28 vi).

The girls, ages 12 and 14, who live in the northern city of Basel, had applied for Swiss citizenship several months ago, but their request was denied, Swiss media reported. The case showed how those who don’t follow Swiss rules and customs won’t become citizens, even if they have lived in the country for a long time, are fluent in one of the national languages – German, French or Italian – and are gainfully employed.

    Germany showed every sign of following suit, with well-advanced plans for obliging benefit claimants to pass a test of everyday fluency in German; and immigrants were told they must stay at government-agreed addresses  for their first three years – so as to hinder formation of ghettoes.


As Glasgow-Oxford-Harvard historian Niall Ferguson continued with his support for UK’s REMAIN and related great-and-good causes of indiscriminate multiculti race-mixing (Sunday Times, 3 vii), he drew a critical reply from correspondent William Clark:

"The ironic comment at the end of your book "War of the World" was that peace in Europe was achieved through the ethnic cleansing during the War of the World, and then remarked how immigration in recent years effectively saw the immigration of culturally different peoples by their millions. The implication is that war becomes more likely once again.

    As an immigrant, I did not agree with the focus on the immigration issues by the LEAVE campaign but it is a relative issue. I ask all immigrants I meet what they like about Britain, given it cannot be the food or our weather. The answer is that it is a nice country. Even young people from France, Italy and Germany say they like the sense of freedom here. At what point, under pre-Brexit arrangements, does everyone say: Enough! We could, just, fit the entire population of the world on this Island, but I think most people would say: Too many! What about the entire population of the European Union. After all, they do not have Habeas Corpus. What about 200 million residents here? One hundred million? So it is a relative issue but an entirely valid one, and the concerns of the public have been largely ignored by the intellectuals who supposedly speak for us. There are many areas of the country where the people feel there are already too many immigrants. Such people voted as is their right"

Clark was surely right: mass ethnic separations that made for peace after 1945 included the expulsion of Germans from Eastern Europe by the Red Army, Japanese withdrawal from China, the separation of Muslim Pakistan from mainly-Hindu India, the creation of a homeland in Israel where Jews could take refuge and the partition of Cyprus between Greek and Turkish communities; by contrast, the continued mixing of religions in Northern Ireland, Burma, Iraq, and India itself were ongoing disasters – as were the overoptimistic fantasies of Black-White co-operation in America and South Africa. Only the firmest dictatorial rule enabled communities who hated each other to live together – as in Madman Insane’s Iraq and Basher Assad’s Syria – though less pronounced conflicts could be handled by firm religion or ideology as under Catholicism in South Ameria and under communism in Russia, Yugoslavia and China.


 Amidst the encircling gloom at the Grauniad about the massive display in England of affection for the Queen on her 90th birthday, about English rugby victory in Australia, about the ‘liberal’-left failing to command votes whether wearing Liberal or Labour hats, and about the £10M taxpayers’ gift to ignoramic Iraq gurubureaucrat and multicultidupe Chilcot leaving Rev Blair a free man to enjoy his multi-million-pound diplomatic spoils, the intellectually and actually bankrupt newspaper let its star ‘maverick’ columnist deliver a little better cheer (7 vii, Simon Jenkins):

"Brexit is starting to deliver. British politics was constipated and has now overdosed on laxative. It is experiencing a great evacuation. It has got rid of a prime minister and is about to get rid of a leader of the opposition. It will soon be rid of a chancellor of the exchequer and a lord chancellor. It is also rid of two, if not four, Tory heirs apparent. Across the spectrum the left is on the brink of upheaval and perhaps historic realignment, if only the Liberal Democrats have the guts to engineer it. The Greens and Ukip have both lost their leaders. An entire political class is on the way out. As Oscar Wilde said of the death of Little Nell, it would take a heart of stone not to laugh"

Yes, despite the West’s globalizing capitalists and slave traders having embraced PeeCee and censorship to help their cause, the people of Scotland and non-metropolitan England had shown it was nationalists and kindred LEAVErs who had the votes –to the horror of chatterati.

More seriously, the Guardian also let Welsh Labour MP and Privy Councillor Ann Clwyd remind anti-war hysterics of what Madman Insane’s Iraq had been like until the US and UK mounted their second improving military intervention:

"I first became aware of human rights atrocities in Iraq in the 70s, before I became a politician. I met Iraqi students in Cardiff, some of whom had been imprisoned in Basra, and what they told me was so terrible I could hardly believe them. I came to learn, however, that it was only the tip of the iceberg.

    In 1991 I stood up in parliament and described what I had seen on the mountains of Iran and Iraq, when the Kurds fled from Saddam’s helicopter gunships. The scenes were appalling and typical of the attacks made by the Iraqi regime on Iraqis.

    Saddam killed hundreds of thousands of his own people. He was “the biggest weapon of mass destruction”, an Iraqi man once told me. “Why did it take so long for him to be removed?”

    Many Kurds were killed during the genocidal Anfal campaign, including as a result of the barbarous use of chemical weapons in Halabja. I met a number of the horribly burnt victims in a London hospital afterwards. Many, many others were killed brutally in cold blood in a maze of prisons and torture chambers all over the country. Repression, abuse, ethnic cleansing and extrajudicial killings continued right up to 2003.

    Saddam was without doubt a serious threat to domestic, regional and global stability. I had hoped the international community could remove or neutralise him without war. But sanctions, international indictments, UN security council resolutions: all had been tried; all had failed"


Israel announced it would help Kenya to build a 440-mile wall along its border with Somalia as part of a range of sweeteners from Binyamin Netanyahu to win African support against mad Mueslis at the United Nations. Kenya hoped that the wall, which drew comparisons with the controversial West Bank “separation barrier”, would stem the flow of terrorists from Somalia after attacks including the 2013 Westgate shopping centre siege in Nairobi in which at least 67 people died. The centre and some of its restaurants were Israeli-owned.

{No criticism of this Trumpian ‘xenophobic’ scheme was expected from the peecee goons of the West since it was wanted by Blacks.}


As Eurofanatics tried to recover from their defeat at the hands of the British electorate – suddenly revealed at the ballot box as being opposed to low-IQ-immigration after years of PeeCee in which such views were deemed unworthy of expression – the vengeful Times struck an especially low note by asking three-sprogged LEAVE candidate for the ‘Conservative’ leadership Andrea Leadsom what she thought of becoming a top political “mum.”

Obligingly, Andrea replied that motherhood might possibly give a candidate a certain edge over a childless rival {like Theresa May – and found herself promptly dumped on by the Times and the BBC. Of course, LEAVEr Leadsom had in no way complained of the ‘edge’ – in time and money -- that might accrue to childfree achievers such as:

Louisa May Alcott, Author of Little Women
Jane Austen, Author of Sense and Sensibility
Francis Bacon, Politician, Philosopher, Scientist
Tallulah Bankhead, Actress
Samuel Beckett, Author, Playwright, Poet
Ludwig Van Beethoven, Composer
William Blake, Artist, Poet
James Buchanan, 15th U.S. President
Pat Buchanan, Columnist, Politician/ U.S. Presidential Candidate
Sandra Bullock, Actress
Raymond Burr, Actor
Maria Callas, Opera Singer
Barbara Castle, British Politician
Kim Catrall, Actress
Helen Clark, New Zealand Prime Minister
George Clooney, Actor, Star of ‘Ocean's Eleven’

Etc. – see

allowing them to think, read, write and entertain in career-advancing ways. No wonder AL was outraged at her treatment by what she called the centre-left “gutter press.”
