Putin Calls Out Neoclowns

The Russian President knows perfectly well who Russia’s most vicious enemies are, and why they are pushing for NATO forces to engage directly with the Russian military:

You know that the word “elite” has lost much of its credibility. Those who have done nothing for society and consider themselves a caste endowed with special rights and privileges – especially those who took advantage of all kinds of economic processes in the 1990s to line their pockets – are definitely not the elite. To reiterate, those who serve Russia, hard workers and military, reliable, trustworthy people who have proven their loyalty to Russia by deeds, in a word, dignified people are the genuine elite.

Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly, Vladimir Putin, 29 February 2024

He’s referring to the foreign oligarchs who took advantage of the post-Soviet “end of history” era in order to financially rape Russia. Most of them have now fled Russia. As Yoram Hazony has pointed out, foreign elites are entirely common in the late stages of empire; the fact that the current US political elite is entirely foreign, with nary an American nor a Protestant to be found in it is a) not at all surprising and b) strongly indicative of the incipient end of the imperial USA that we already appear to be witnessing.

Other historians have noted this phenomenon of imperial foreign elites as well. I was reading The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire last night and came across this pertinent passage:

Such priorities and shibboleths are, however, best viewed against a background of barbarians frequenting the imperial court, ad hoc arrangements continually being made with useful potentates, and titles bestowed on outsiders with barely a smattering of spoken Greek. The proportion of families in the ruling elite comprising first-, second- or third-generation immigrants probably made up around a quarter of the total… Many were members, if not from the dominant family, of elites beyond Byzantium’s borders, external or internal.

Putin knows the treachery of them that say they are elites and are not…

Americans are the New Indians

When you think about it, you can’t really say it was impossible for anyone to see it coming. The sins of the ancestors are observably being meted out to their descendants, and with an ironic vengeance when one considers the source of the core concept that is fueling all of the latest migration and demographic changes across the American continent.

As I can personally attest, it takes as little as two generations to go from being a member of a recognized tribe to strangers denying that you could possibly have any relationship to it. In the ages of chaos, the world changes much faster, and much more comprehensively, than most people have the capacity to imagine.

The Great Replacement is Real

Clown World isn’t just replacing white people with diversity. In New York, they’re replacing cops and teachers with migrants.

In a city engulfed in crime, Mayor Eric Adams has decided to cut the police force by 6000 officers. The result is NY police officers will be cut by 1/5, or 13.5%, by postponing the next 5 Academy classes, bringing officers below 30,000, down from 36,000. These are the numbers we saw in the 80s and 90s. This is being done to house and feed anonymous, unvetted illegal aliens from around the world.

Progressive Democrat Mayor Eric Adams announced a $110.5 billion budget, saying cuts across all agencies were necessary. The city spent $1.45 billion in fiscal 2023 on the migrant crisis. They spent nearly $11 billion is expected to be spent in 2024 and 2025.

“For months, we have warned New Yorkers about the challenging fiscal situation our city faces,” Adams said. “To balance the budget as the law requires, every city agency dug into their own budget to find savings, with minimal disruption to services, reports DNYUZ. “And while we pulled it off this time, make no mistake: Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up.”

Fortunately, as we have repeatedly been assured, immigration is good for the economy, so those tax revenues should go up as rapidly as the budget deficit falls once those migrants start doing all the jobs that New Yorkers won’t do, like police the city and teach the schoolkids.

It is a bit ironic, however, that even most of the critics of the largest migration in human history can’t bring themselves to admit that the legality of the migration is totally irrelevant to its consequences. Neither the American Indians nor the Palestinians are much concerned these days with whether the European migration of the 18th century or the Jewish migration of the 20th century was legal or not. It seems unlikely that the beleaguered descendants of today’s Americans will be much impressed by their grandparents defending themselves by pointing out that at least they protested the illegal invaders.

The evils of immigration are first a matter of quantity, and second a matter of quality. The legality or illegality is totally irrelevant.

They Just Want a Better Life

That is exactly as violent and dyscivilized as it was in the places they left:

A violent riot erupted on the streets of the Hague last night, as ‘migrants’ attacked cops with bricks and torched police cars. Dozens of rioters were filmed surrounding the Opera conference hall along Fruitweg in the Netherlands, as multiple police vans drove to the scene.

Another clip also showed the aftermath. The building had several smashed windows and parked vehicles were on fire, with the street left looking like a warzone.

A fight broke out between two groups of Eritreans. ‘It got seriously out of hand,’ The Hague Municipality spokesman Robin Middel said last night. Middel said a group loyal to Eritrea’s government was holding a meeting when the venue was attacked by Eritreans who oppose the African nation’s government.

The fighting is the latest outbreak of violence at Eritrean events in Europe.

Dozens of people, including at least 26 police officers, were injured during unrest surrounding an Eritrean cultural festival in the southwestern German city of Stuttgart in September 2023. A fight the same month between Eritrean government supporters and opponents in Tel Aviv led to violent street confrontations among African asylum-seekers and migrants. Months earlier, a clash at an Eritrean festival in the western German city of Giessen left 22 police officers injured.

Apparently the Dutch, the Israeli, and the German Dirt is all lacking in Magic. But at least we know that all those Eritreans are good for those economies, right?

Eritrean Economy-Enhancement in Action

The Dirt is not Magic. And immigration is not good for the economy. Immigration, as should be entirely obvious by now, is war on the native people.

The Third Economic Destruction of Germany

The combination of financially backing the EU, supporting NATO’s Russian sanctions, the primitive Green agenda, and the importation of millions of economically net-negative immigrants has finally overwhelmed what was once one of the world’s great economic engines:

One in three German manufacturers is considering moving production to other countries amid economic troubles, double the number recorded in 2022, Bild news outlet reported on Saturday, citing Siegfried Russwurm, the head of the Federation of German Industries (BDI).

According to the report, among the latest firms planning to relocate is household appliance manufacturer Miele, which plans to cut 2,000 jobs in Germany and move 700 positions to its site in Poland. Heating manufacturer Viessmann had already moved 3,000 jobs to Poland.

Volkswagen said last year that it would build a new battery factory in the US, and BASF announced plans to invest €10 billion in a petrochemicals plant in China amid job cuts at its headquarters in Germany. French steel pipe manufacturer Vallourec shut down production in Germany in September last year, while tiremaker Michelin and its US rival Goodyear said they would also close their German plants by the end of 2025.

Russwurm says that a growing number of companies have reported that their “patience with Germany is at an end.” According to him, the slowdown in economic growth and high rates of inflation, especially with regard to energy, have resulted in less investment, and Berlin lacks a strategy to turn the situation around. This in turn leads to a gradual decline in manufacturing, he said, and while existing production lines may continue to operate for a while, “new ones are no longer being built in Germany.”

Many companies point to the high energy prices, which soared after Germany lost access to Russian natural gas in 2022, as one of the major causes of their problems. This was exacerbated by Berlin’s decision to phase out nuclear energy and coal and switch to renewables, which, according to Russwurm, put manufacturers working in Germany at a significant disadvantage compared to other industrialized nations.

The German dirt is no more magic than the American variety. Generations of Turkish gastarbeitern combined with Merkel’s refugee wave means that manufacturers based in Germany are no more guaranteed actual German workers than if they just set their factories up in Turkey or in China.

The biggest lie that the neoliberal economists ever told was that immigration is good for the economy. While immigration can be good for the economy, such as when you’re replacing Native American nomads, African slaves, and Irish indentured servants with hard-working German immigrants, the 20th century movement of peoples has proven, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that replacing Northern Europeans with any other population is very, very bad for the economy in every sense of the term, including by the most basic GDP-per-capita metric.

To say that “immigration is good for GDP” is a literal tautology, because GDP increases with the addition of every single economic actor. Of course, it does with every dollar of debt too, and yet no one is dumb enough – a few professional neo-Keynesians aside – to claim that “debt is good for the economy”. But in both cases, the historical data proves – does not suggest, proves – that mass immigration is reliably very, very bad for an industrial economy.

Communism > Clown World

One of the most startling realizations of the 21st century has been the inescapable conclusion that communism, despite all of its atheism, murderous tendencies, economic shortcomings, and various other evils, is still much, much better for a nation than Clown World’s neoliberalism.

A map recently published by German poll aggregator Wahlkreisprognose shows that in the former East Germany Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) has a clear lead in almost the entire former German Democratic Republic while the western part is overwhelmingly dominated by the conservative CDU and its Bavarian sister party CSU.

In other words, the country is sharply divided along what was once formerly West Germany and East Germany (GDR).

In the map, the Institute has colored Germany’s Bundestag constituencies according to party preference. The black color represents the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the blue color the Alternative for Germany (AfD), the red color the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), and the green color the Greens. The fainter the color, the smaller the lead of the party in the constituency, and the darker the color, the more dominant the party is.

The CDU dominates in western Germany outside the big cities, and the AfD in eastern Germany outside Berlin. The CDU and AfD are perfectly aligned with the former border between the former German Democratic Republic and the former West Germany.

This is not an argument for communism, but rather a condemnation of Clown World. North Korea is still Korean. China is still China. But the USA is no longer American, Great Britain is no longer British, the European nations are invaded and occupied by foreigners, and even the proud nations of Japan and South Korea are under direct assault.

Clown World delenda est.

By the way, the econoclowns lied about the “economic need for immigration” too. Immigration doesn’t help the economy at all. It is observably worse for an economy than losing a war and being nuked.

Mass immigration may cost Germany up to €19.2 trillion, and has already cost the country €5.8 trillion, according to a top German academic on public finances, Prof. Bernd Raffelhüschen, of the University of Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg. Often referred to as the “pension pope,” Prof. Raffelhüschen’s study blows a hole in the narrative promoted by pro-migration parties and business leaders, who claim that mass immigration will save Germany’s public finances and the job market.

Several top Dutch professors recently released a study detailing how migrants have cost the Netherlands a minimum of €400 billion since 1995, and the Netherlands has accepted far fewer migrants than Germany. In Norway, researchers found that only half of migrants are employed despite the state spending €6.6 billion on workforce integration projects over the course of 10 years.

Ethnic Cleansing in the EU

If you ever wonder why I expect that the tens of millions of Arab and African migrants who have invaded Europe will not be permitted to stay there permanently, note that an EU state has already begun the process of deporting large numbers of unwanted foreign residents.

Latvia is attempting to deport thousands of Russian-speaking people – and apparently, these ‘purges’ affect not only newcomers who have recently applied for a residency permit, but people who have lived in the country their entire lives.

The New York Times recently told the story of Russian-speaking widow Nina Marcinkevica, who was born in Latvia 63 years ago, when the Baltic republic was still part of the Soviet Union. She married and raised a family there, and has never lived anywhere else. Nina resides in the predominantly Russian-speaking city of Daugavpils in the eastern part of the country. In the fall, she received an official notice stating that she had lost her rights to residency, her state pension, and medical care. “You must leave the territory of the Republic of Latvia by November 30, 2023,” the letter stated.

The Latvian authorities have the opportunity to expel Marcinkevica due to her Russian citizenship. Over 3,200 Russian nationals living in Latvia received notifications about potential deportation in early October, according to the news portal Rus.lsm.lv.

This isn’t the outrage it is portrayed to be. The Latvian people absolutely have the right to their own country, and no Russian or any other non-Latvian has the right to invade their borders or reside among them if the Latvian people don’t want them there. Particularly in a democracy, even a limited representative democracy, mass immigration and the free movement of people cannot be permitted by any nation which wishes to survive as a nation.

But it is incredibly hypocritical, given the way in which the EU authorities have, despite the clear opposition of the majority of its peoples, encouraged the mass invasion of the European nations. Which means that even in the unlikely event that the EU doesn’t collapse in the next ten years, a clear legal precedent has been set for the mass repatriation of migrant populations that have proven to be incompatible with the languages, laws, and cultural traditions of the host nation.

Finland appears to be following Latvia’s lead, as it plans to pass a law banning Russians from acquiring property in Finland. No doubt repatriations will soon follow.

Finland is preparing to completely prohibit Russian citizens from purchasing real estate in the country, Defense Minister Antti Hakkanen said in a statement published on Finland’s official government website on Friday.

In truth, given current economic and cultural trajectories, the children of those Russians expelled from Latvia or Finland will probably be deeply grateful that their parents returned to Mother Russia, however involuntarily the return.

The Great Retardation

If the media doesn’t like the phrase The Great Replacement to describe what is happening in Minnesota and elsewhere across the West, perhaps they’ll be pleased if we point out that The Great Retardation is arguably even more appropriate:

“Signs outlining the expectations we have of riders are now being installed at light rail and bus rapid transit stations,” Metro Transit wrote in a post on social media. “Those who violate these rules will be removed from transit property.”

A webpage dedicated to “Rules for Riding” explains a person’s obligations as a rider. “Transit vehicles and facilities are shared spaces, and come with shared responsibilities. Your role as a rider applies anytime you use the transit system, and ensures a clean, safe experience for all,” the website says.

The expectations of riders include paying ride fare and wearing clothing. Paying for one fare equals paying for one seat, Metro Transit explains, telling riders to hold their belongings in their laps and not place them on an additional seat. The rules distinguish illegal activity from activity that isn’t necessarily illegal but is “not allowed.”

Peeing and pooping while riding on Metro Transit vehicles falls under the “illegal” category, according to the signs. “Transit property is not a public restroom,” the new rules read. They also explain to riders that sexual assault is illegal. “Sexual contact without consent is forbidden,” the rules state.

Metro Transit reminds riders to not defecate on trains or sexually assault passengers, 30 January 2024

The dirt is not magic. It never was. Neither is public transit. If the quality of the population changes, the quality of life in that locale will inevitably change over time in line with the new demographic’s preferences, traditions, and above all, standards.

And there is no other word for replacing High Elves with an imported melange of orcs, goblins, and trolls, and expecting the general quality of life to go unchanged than retardery on a historically breathtaking scale. This is more than just dyscivicism and dyscivilization, it is literally devolution in action.

UPDATE: Reportedly Metro Transit ridership is down 50 percent from 2019 levels. Such a mystery!

You Know What They Are

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans don’t, and will not believe it until the fireworks start. Even then, they will struggle to believe that war has actually come to the United States, a war that isn’t going to be a civil war in any sense of the term:

1stResponderMedia posted a video on X showing an interview with a group of migrants who illegally crossed the border 12 miles east of Sasabe, Arizona, over the weekend. At least one of the migrants in the small group identified himself as an African migrant from Morocco.

A second male migrant traveling in the same group responded to a question about his country of origin with an ominous message.

“If you are smart enough, you will know who I am,” the migrant began. “But you are really not smart enough to know who I am. But soon you’re gonna know who I am.”

The migrant then walked away.

These young male migrants are neither refugees nor conventional immigrants. They are being brought into the United States to serve as a Praetorian Guard for the foreign elite that is terrified of the reaction of the US citizenry to the inevitable collapse of the empire that the people never even wanted in the first place.

We wondered what the reaction to the failure of the jump to China would be, and now we know.

The picture below doesn’t show any poor huddled masses yearning to breathe free. It’s a well-funded army of mercenaries that only lacks weapons and orders to take action. And it’s already present across most of the United States.

The growing resistance centered in Texas is a positive development, but it’s almost certainly too little, much too late, led by a leadership that is more instinctual than cognizant of the real state of affairs. And that’s assuming that it isn’t some sort of oppositional gatekeeping in the first place.

Hitler must be cursing in Hell now that he’s realized all he had to do to successfully execute Operation Sea Lion was to dress his Wehrmacht in civilian clothing, put them on rubber rafts, and tell the Royal Navy that they were huddled masses yearning to breath free.

As the great Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld finally concluded after examining the movement of peoples throughout history, immigration is war.
