    Well, I'm no fan of Dick Morris, he's Swamp-incarnate. What I have learned from actual interaction with legal immigrants is that many of them are the staunchest supporters of border-control... they went through all the hard work of doing it the right way and they'll be damned if somebody else just walks across the border. Don't let the Democrats control the narrative!

    I get what you're saying and I have no objection to the idea that we all have preferences and these preferences are, in some sense, inexplicable. I extensively volunteered in a homeless shelter a while back and I discovered that there were certain kinds of homeless that I can get along with, and there are other kinds that I just can't get along with. It's not race, gender, age or any other superficial attribute... there are just certain people I can't hang out with. But I think it's a mistake to try to reason from the world-as-we-know-it to the world-as-it-will-be. The coming world will be different in ways that can't necessarily be put into words. And I don't want to encourage any preconceptions -- I don't believe that the Kingdom will be a "glowing light-dimension," either, as the gnostics insist. You've heard the saying, "the fly that ruins the ointment." That one guy that interrupts a heart-felt conversation at just the wrong moment. That car-alarm that goes off just as the song was getting to the best groove. And so on. This world is chock full of such flies, and the Kingdom will have no flies that ruin the ointment. That's pretty hard to imagine, when you really think about it. So, while I understand the inexplicable preferences you are talking about, at the same time, the Kingdom will be devoid of the nuisances that are what really formed those preferences within us to begin with. I hope that makes sense.

    Not in the coming Kingdom. "For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink." (1 Corinthians 12:13) God did not create the hostility of the races, that is a feature of this fallen world. So we will be united in harmony. This is the true inclusiveness/diversity based on the image of God within us, as opposed to the counterfeit "diversity" of this world order, where everyone is welcome, only so long as they support the narrative. The races are not the same, biologically, but then, neither are any two humans (even identical twins are biologically distinct, only their DNA is the same). So these differences, although real, are irrelevant, and it is absolutely possible for everyone to "all live kum-ba-ya" together. That is exactly what the peace is that is promised in the world to come -- no more strife, division, etc. False "divserity" is easy to recognize because it requires people to deny facts and confound reason. True diversity acknowledges differences and eliminates hostility and division. In the limit, this is only possible through the work of God, and so every earthly kingdom will fail to achieve inclusiveness and true diversity.

    I don't disagree with any of that, but it's missing the point. The point is that the social-engineers who architected the New Deal and deep-sixed America way back in 1913 want to redirect the blame for what has caused the blatantly obvious degradation of American civilization over the last century away from the central bank and New Deal (and its descendants) onto any other issue that will fly. These people don't give a damn about race or racism and if you'll buy the line that "dilution of the white race is causing the degradation of American civilization", that's the line they'll sell you. They'll sell you any explanation except the true explanation, which is that the central bank and New Deal were deployed as economic weapons to detonate American civilization from within. In other words, if you think that the degradation of American civilization is the result of "dilution of the white race", you're a dupe.

    It's the same template they use for everything. "You can't investigate the Federal Reserve without a search-warrant signed by a judge because it's a private company." But then, you can't sue them as a private company, because they are created by an act of Congress and regulated under Congressional authority. Logic? What even is 'logic'?

    Wow, mind blown. Seriously. What an excellent write-up. I don't know how I missed that, it's blatantly obvious. I knew that TIA had gone underground at NSA (X-Keyscore, revealed by Snowden, is TIA), but I never thought about the need to appease the ACLU/bleeding-heart left and how social media has played into that. Just slap the word "social" on it, and they'll eat it up like candy on Halloween. Always hiding in plain sight... :rolleyes:

    So, I'm going to take on Greg Kelly on this headline: Yes, the mainstream media is trying to spin this as a racial issue. But Kelly is just compounding their mistake by trying to doubly spin this as ... a racial issue. It's obviously not a racial issue and the cops are obviously in the wrong. The root problem is that every minor traffic stop nowadays is a chance for the cowboys in blue to stage a mini-SWAT takedown and get that adrenaline-fueled dopamine kick that was the reason they joined in the first place. Zero de-escalation, zero use of reason/logic, zero assessment of the situation. Nazario was completely lucid and was verbally interactive with the police and compliant. When they refused to explain what the issue was (he asked several times), that is when he made the decision that he was not comfortable getting out of the vehicle (a perfectly rational decision). Nazario's decision to set up his phone was also completely justified, and rational. The following video from an MSMBS outlet is much less heavily edited than the Newsmax video, and gives a much wider perspective on the whole stop: No, Newsmax/Kelly, the boys in blue are not right no matter what. Stop with the "Team Blue" BS. Yes, the Democrats are politicizing police use-of-force but the hard-right is ignoring why this political strategy is working -- widespread, rampant use of excessive force by the police. It's not a race-issue, it's an issue that the cops aren't held liable for their actions because they're an extension of the very courts that would be holding them liable (and also because of police unions). Not to mention that all of this drill-sergeant / barking-dog aggression that cops are trained to use in almost every interaction with the public, besides buying coffee, dovetails perfectly with the globalist agenda to militarize the police and make every interaction with police into a situation of cattle getting prodded by the cattlemen.

    Yes, there are differences between the races, and their cultures. To deny this is insanity. But those differences are all window-dressing on the core within, which is what really matters: the image of God. Of course, and you are entitled to engage in any positive activity along those lines that does not violate the Pareto criterion, that is, you can do anything that makes any individual or group you like better off, but it is immoral to do anything that harms others, no matter how indirectly or subtly. Also, it must be acknowledged that this is the dictionary definition of bigotry. Some people are comfortable with being bigoted. So be it. Just don't try to pass off bigotry as non-bigotry. Then we are going to have problems...

    It's impossible to prove historical counter-factuals but, my assertion is that if we had maintained a rational immigration policy all along, most new migrants would be assimiliated into American culture during the naturalization process, which includes American values. After the insemination of the blockbuster welfare state in the US by FDR (which was only possible, of course, because of the creation of the Fed and the imposition of direct, unapportioned taxation back in 1913), it's like a giant magnet was switched on that was attracting every kind of undesirable from around the globe (especially political undesirables, which are the worst-of-the-worst, like "trained Marxists.") For a long time, it wasn't too noticeable because of the "swamping" effect... American culture was sufficiently homogeneous that it swamped out most negative political effects from this undesirable immigration. But over time, the effects compounded and began to transform the country from within. To make this a racial issue is to completely concede the entire argument to the left, which is why I vehemently oppose casting the immigration as a racial problem and I am prima facie suspicious of anybody who wants to cast it in a racial light. Many of the most iconic Americans were/are not white. So race is completely and totally irrelevant. What is relevant is the corruption of the founding values of the country, the "basic contract" between Americans and their government. The idea was that the government would keep watch at the borders for invaders, and we would be free, and our freedom (both economic an dsocial) would give rise to a peace and prosperity the world had never seen before. That's the bill of goods we were sold. But it was a bait-and-switch -- the final nail was driven into the coffin of that contract in 1913, and it was lowered into the grave and covered under cement under FDR's New Deal... it's right there in the name! So, yeah, if you abolish everything that made America America, how is it any surprise that immigration just becomes one more weapon used by the omnipotent welfare state to further its insane agenda? The disproportionate erosive effect on the culture typical of white communities (Christian) is only a byproduct of the breakdown of the American contract itself. What else did you expect would happen?? Whiteness is as meaningless as blue-eyedness or blonde-ness. Every single human being is created in the image of God. All distinctions that humanity makes are a result of the Fall and descend from the tower of Babel. I suppose if the KKK maniacs somehow got their way and exterminated all other races from the planet, then we would have a whole new iteration of superficial-feature-superiority, whereby only blondes have the true culture worth preserving and all other hair-colors are degenerates with an evolved, biological predisposition towards communism, and so on and so forth. Leftists authoritarians aren't the only authoritarians who believe four-legs-good, two-legs-bad... :rolleyes:

    Well, what the heck, I remember reading an article just a couple years ago that we had crossed the boundary into a non-majority plurality - either my memory has failed me or there has been a huge demographic swing in the meantime. Either way, I'll correct the OP... thanks for the catch...

    Democrat-controlled narrative: immigrants = votes for Democrats The truth: legitimate immigration (of foreign people who want to live in the US, legally) is a powerful force for good in the US. The illegal immigration being conducted on the US border is actually a form of demographic warfare being fought using illegal means and has nothing to do with the inherent desirability of immigration-as-such. And while white Americans are a majority in the US, there are no "hard" racial boundaries any longer (and why should there be?!), many historically influential, inter-generational American families are not white at all, and everyone who has naturalized is an American-as-such (this is true "color-blindness"... if you're a citizen, you're a citizen, case-closed). As I understand, my great-great grandparents on my mother's side were immigrants from a European country. That makes me plain American "white bread" but it's not like my ancestors arrived on the Mayflower. I am the descendant of immigrants and I think everyone who believes in the values that this country was founded on will agree that immigrants become full citizens once they have naturalized, and so on to their descendants. Don't let the Democrats control the narrative!! (looking at you, Tucker... :unamused:)

    The news just keeps getting weirder and weirder. I'm starting to wonder how much of this is indirect effects of #DeepFakes. I'm not saying that Trump/Giuliani faked anything, but could the team have been intentionally spoon-fed a DeepFaked hard-drive image in order to create an "aura" of suspicion around the wrong people? This was more than two years ago. The technology has already improved by leaps and bounds since this video was made.

    The problem with crooks (and those who aid and abet them, wittingly or unwittingly) is that they assume that winning the battle means winning the war. When the wicked conspire against the innocent (those who are vulnerable/blind/disabled), they are no longer fighting the innocent, but God Himself. They can win every single battle and then lose the war in a single stroke, in fact, that is exactly what is going to happen. Repent now, the Kingdom of God on earth is at hand!

    In context, it just doesn't make sense. A pin to the back of the neck on a prone person could not compress "one or both sides" of a person's neck unless they were being pinned down onto something else, like a thick rope under tension. I realize the language "The MPD authorizes two types of neck restraints" could be construed to mean that pinning someone by their neck when prone is not authorized but I think that's a misreading of the entire section, which isn't addressing pins at all. I haven't dug into the details of the legal case, but I'm willing to bet that a massive percentage of the police in this country have routinely used the neck-pin that was used on Floyd, and that in many of those cases, it has been applied for longer durations than 8 minutes. The point is that Chauvin's use-of-force in this situation is (or at least was) pretty routine. This is nowhere near Rodney King territory. My personal view is that police should not be using this technique (except in limited applications, such as against soft ground, or as part of a momentary control while performing some other restraint technique), but I also think it's (yet another) travesty of justice to sacrifice Chauvin to appease the BLM mob, which is what is really happening here.

    Technical note: Section 5-311 is not talking about the neck pin used on Floyd, it is talking about choke restraints (applied to the front of the neck) using the hands, arms or legs. Such chokes can render a person unconscious without killing them (and they can also cause death) by disrupting the blood supply to the brain as well as constricting air-flow (thus reducing oxygenation of the blood). The neck pin puts pressure on the spine at the base of the skull and can cause serious injury or death by pinching, rupturing or even severing the spinal cord.
