Some Thoughts on American Immigration Population

From the Water-Cooler:

Out-performing American blacks is not remotely impressive, at least in America.

In any case, yes, culture matters. Thomas Sowell has pointed out that both American blacks and Southern whites are basically infected with “redneck culture” derived from the Scotch-Irish in the British Isles, with various malignant attitudes and behavioral patterns.

However, genes matter too. African immigrants to the US (like those from South Asia, by the way) are heavily selected for IQ by the heavy expense and cognitive burden of attaining the credentials and income necessary to get a visa, permission to work here, and a flight. We’re skimming the cream to an extreme degree, getting a drastically unrepresentative slice of those countries that is distorting our perception of the vast bulk of those people (“surely if Dr. Malik is so smart, than all the other people still in Pakistan or Ghana must be brilliant too! Let’s let them in by the millions!”)

Until the post-Mao era, 20th century Chinese suffered drastic malnutrition, and those who did not die like flies by the tens of millions in the various famines and horrible wars had their growth stunted. Tall men in such a country would be extremely rare, but in such a vast land, there were enough for Mao to dragoon into a ceremonial honor guard of giants to impress Nixon for his historic 1972 visit. It would have been idiotic for Nixon to have concluded that the 1970s Chinese are a tall people from that sight.

On top of which, our skimming the cream of Africa and South Asia is to the detriment of both ourselves and their areas of origin. Because not only do those places desperately need their cognitive elite far more than we do, we, by undercutting our own advanced degree earners with cheap Third World knock-off imported people, do ourselves damage in the big picture and long run. White American med and law and engineering school grads who are unemployed or underemployed, only to have their plight dismissed with withering scorn, brutal contempt, and zero empathy, serve as a harsh example to other whites not to bother with academically difficult courses of study in the absence of rewarding careers to follow. Then, of course, the resulting “shortage” of med school students and such is used as an excuse to flood us with even more Third Worlders .. “jobs Americans won’t do!” in an endless accelerating spiral.

On top of which is long term damage to our politics and cultural unity. The first generation is usually grateful to be allowed to be here, and if not enthusiastically pro-America and pro-West is at least focused on quietly earning a living and keeping their heads down. But their children and so forth are quickly radicalized into heavily hostile, alienated, left types relentlessly working against the interests of the core white population, against the national security of the nation as a whole, against the history, heritage, heroes, holidays, and texture and flavor of daily life.

On top of THAT is the phenomenon of regression to the mean. Thus, while a tall Japanese is more likely than other Japanese to have tall children, he is still less likely to do so than an equally tall white man. Put another way, a tall Japanese, coming from a shorter ethnic group, has a non-literal but de facto “tug of gravity” pulling his descendants down to a shorter level than a tall Dutchman or Dinka, coming from taller ethnic groups.

That’s why, in the long (multi generational) run, high-IQ blacks and South Asians are not going to have the same beneficial effect on the economy etc as high-IQ whites and East Asians. The descendants are not going to all be as smart.

Finally, it is highly questionable just how intelligent these imported Third Worlders truly are. Does anyone really think that universities in black Africa are as rigorous? That universities in the Mideast South Asia are freer of rampant cheating and corruption? Amid extremely intense pressure to do diversity hires, the incentive to just take in anyone with a nominal advanced degree from Durka Durka U is overwhelming.

Russian Economy Was Saved by the Sanctions, Why? – Updated

“If we go back to the period before the imposition of sanctions in 2014 and even until 2022, the Russian economy was very heavily colonized by Western firms.”

— American economist, professor at the University of Texas James Galbraith

What professor Galbraith doesn’t mention is that all Western firms that were forced by the Western governments to sell their investments in Russia must sell at a mandatory 50 percent discount and pay an exit tax worth 15 percent of the company’s market value. See here.

In fact, if one adds up the billions and billions of dollars, euros and pounds of investments and the value of the technological know how that was transferred to Russia in the last 2 years it probably considerably outweighs the controversial 300 billion dollars of Russia’s central bank money stuck in Western banks.

This whole charade of sanctions seems in fact a back door boost to Russian economy and its industry.

It is though doubtful that Biden’s hardliners were in the know on the net result of their own actions. As the saying goes, this is a 4D chess tournament and the actual players are not telling us their names. Conspiracy? Sure.

This ties in with our older posts: The Fake War

Remember Hiroshima, Mon Amour? The US Did It

 Maria Zakharova: “On September 21 the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, presented awards from the Atlantic Council, a well-known American analytical center under NATO that promotes the ideas of Euro-Atlanticism and also specializes in generating Russophobic, anti-Russian ideas.

One of this year’s laureates is Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. Von der Leyen gave a rather remarkable speech. She praised the head of the Japanese government for supporting the Kiev regime and the fight against Russia. She remembered that his family was from Hiroshima, and during the nuclear bombing in 1945, his relatives died there. Not a word about the United States and the Washington executioners who dropped bombs on the Japanese cities and civilians. But the defendant in the largest corruption scandals in the history of the EU went further – she blamed the tragedy of Hiroshima… on Russia.

Here are her words verbatim: Many of your relatives lost their lives when the atomic bomb razed Hiroshima to the ground. You’ve grown up hearing the stories of the survivors and wanted us to listen to the same stories, to face the past and learn something about the future… when Russia threatens to use nuclear weapons once again. It’s heinous, it’s dangerous, and in the shadow [in the context of] Hiroshima, it’s unforgivable.”

It’s disgusting and dangerous how Ursula Von der Leyen lies».

Int’l Terrorism? Whose Terrorism?

Michael Morell*: “The Iranians must pay for Syria and the Russians must pay..

Charles Rose: “What do you mean? Kill them?”

MM: “Well, yes. But covert killing. You don’t need to tell the world about it. The Pentagon doesn’t have to admit it. If only Moscow and Tehran knew about it.

I want to hit what Assad considers his stronghold. I want him to tremble with fear. Bomb his house at night. Destroy his guards, plane, helicopter. Let him see that we are following him. I am not campaigning for his murder, let him see that his stronghold is destroyed, and he needs to survive. Let him think it will end badly for him.

I want to put pressure on him, on the Iranians, on the Russians, to come to a diplomatic solution.”

France’s Colonial Spoil Extracting Predation


In the last half-century, 67 military coups have occurred in 26 countries on the African continent, instigated by France. Among these, 16 countries still maintain French influence.

There exists a “colonial tax” in 14 African countries, which were formerly French colonies, resulting in substantial annual payments to France, amounting to around $500 billion.

These countries were under French oppression until 1958, after which they gained independence. However, nations such as Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon are still burdened with paying colonial taxes.

These 14 countries have a combined population of 174 million and a nominal total GDP of $196 billion, with a PPP GDP of $411 billion.

Formally, France has halted its colonization policy, but its economic colonization of these African states persists. A portion of the colonies’ budget continues to flow to the French central bank under various names and categories.

This process allows France to appropriate approximately 85 per cent of the former colonies’ annual income. As a result, African countries face financial difficulties, and they are forced to borrow back their own money from the French central bank as debts.

To reclaim their funds, African countries are limited to applying for no more than 20 per cent of the transferred amount. If they seek a larger sum, the former colonizer has the authority to veto it. France argues that it is merely repaying the money it spent on buildings and infrastructure constructed over a century ago.

Any refusal by an African ruler to pay the colonial tax often leads to a coup.

This was the case prior to the arrival of Russian forces, particularly the PMC Wagner. Now, the dynamics may change.

A Realistic View of Slavery & Slave Trading

by Richard KNIGHT via Unz Review

Congo slave caravan, 1888

White people commonly respond to demands for reparations for slavery and slave trading by pointing out that it was whites who abolished these things.[1] I don’t know whether they notice that this doesn’t get them the credit from their antagonists that they seem to expect; they certainly don’t appear to see why this is.

The reason they get no credit is that black people don’t see the abolition of slavery and slave trading as quite the boon for humanity that white people do. If Africans had wanted slavery and slave trading to be abolished, they could have abolished them themselves very easily, just by ceasing to indulge in them. Instead, they met white attempts at abolition with fierce resistance. This was quite natural. Slavery was their way. As for slave trading, it gave them a good profit, and they saw nothing wrong with it.

No, the reason black people go on about slavery and slave trading is not that they deplore them but that they see that white people deplore them, who might therefore be made to feel so guilty about their forefathers’ involvement as to give black people large amounts of money in restitution.

Indeed, if we set the white record on slavery and slave trading against the black record, it stands out as a shining example. The transatlantic slave trade lasted only a fraction of the time that Africans spent selling each other to Arabs, and the number of slaves bought by whites — perhaps ten or 12 million — was a fraction of the number bought by Arabs. As for the length of time Africans spent selling each other to other Africans, and the numbers involved, these were much greater still. The intra-African slave trade still predominated in the nineteenth century, when a European explorer reported that slave-hunting in Africa went on far more to supply the domestic than the foreign market.[2]

I am no expert on slavery in the Americas, but I get the impression that it could have been worse. Although Frederick Douglass mentions slaves being flogged, he doesn’t say that he was flogged himself.[3] Rather, as a boy he had to help look after farmyard animals, which can be quite an agreeable task, and he was later transferred to a mistress for whom he had nothing but praise. Olaudah Equiano was abducted as a child by Africans in his home country before being bought and sold by other Africans, then shipped to America, where he was bought by an English couple, who treated him like their own son. He wrote that he was “very warmly attached” to his master, who was in the Navy, and told him that “if he left me behind it would break my heart.”[4]As for Twelve Years a Slave, according to the historian Simon Webb this was written not by Solomon Northup, who could hardly write his name, but by a white abolitionist named David Wilson, who wanted to make slavery sound as bad as possible.[5]

Coming to the treatment of slaves in Africa, according to Herbert Ward, a nineteenth-century English explorer, in the Congo it was customary for feuding chiefs to mark the settling of their scores by buying a slave, breaking his bones, and burying him with just his head sticking out so that all could see him slowly starve to death. The same fate lay in store for anyone who gave him food or water.[6] The Portuguese explorer Francisco Valdez reported that when the chief of a certain tribe died, no one was allowed to mention the fact for a month or two on pain of being immediately decapitated and his family sold into slavery.[7] If no buyer could be found for his family, they too would be decapitated. The King of Dahomey had to honor his ancestors. To do this, he periodically killed a few hundred slaves so that their blood could be poured on his forebears’ graves. As the victims were slaughtered, the crowd shouted out in delight.[8]

To give two more examples, according to the adventurer Hugh Murray, writing in 1853, after the King of Coomassie died 200 slaves were sacrificed each week for three months.[9] Another writer stated that at the death of a King, large numbers of his favorite wives and slaves were put to death to keep him company.[10] We hear nothing comparable about the treatment of slaves in America.

According to two independent estimates by nineteenth-century Scottish explorers, about three-quarters of the sub-Saharan African population were slaves.[11] Another observer put the proportion at four in five.[12] The slave was the unit of currency in Africa. Fines were paid in slaves, wives were bought in slaves. All the way from the coast to the remotest point in the interior, wrote the French-American anthropologist Paul Du Chaillu, the commercial unit of value was the slave. “As we say dollar, as the English say pound sterling, so these Africans say slave.”[13]

Africans did not object to slavery or slave trading, and this included slaves. In the 1800s the English explorer Richard Lander was surprised to see “the most perfect indifference” in Africans as they lost their liberty.[14] In the 1820s, a Frenchman who passed a group of women being put up for sale in the street noted that they “did not appear in the least mortified at being exhibited” for this purpose.[15] Male slaves, although shackled at the ankle, laughed, wrote two authors in 1826, and the females sang with the utmost glee as they worked in the fields.[16]

When an African slave obtained his liberty, he saw it as no cause for celebration. The naturalist Samuel Baker wrote that abolition only proved that Africans did not appreciate the blessings of freedom, nor did they show the slightest gratitude to the hand that broke the rivets of their fetters.[17] An African might even seek to become a slave, since then he would not have to fend for himself.[18] It was not unknown for former slaves in America to petition to be reenslaved.[19] In 1901, the black nationalist Booker T. Washington wrote that many emancipated slaves returned to their former owners asking to be taken back.[20]

It was only white people, with their elevated concept of the rights of man, who disapproved of slave trading, such as Francisco Valdez, who found it “detestable,”[21]and James Bruce, another explorer, who found it a “horrid practice.”[22] White people proceeded to impose their high-flown concept on those in whose minds it had never appeared.

Black people’s affinity for slavery can still be seen today, as in the many African countries where it still flourishes. For a second example, the Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson reportedly said, “We don’t want to be equal, we want white people to be our slaves.”[23] Consistent with this, when I lived in a black part of London, I was quite often treated by the sort of young black man who in Africa would have been a slave owner as though I might be his slave. Finally, a senior black police officer was recently found guilty of, among other things, telling junior officers that he owned them and bellowing at them to make his porridge.[24] To many black people, today as in the past, the urge to enslave appears irrepressible.

According to Francis Moore, a Briton writing in 1738, a certain African King would amuse himself by going out with some troops from time to time to set fire to parts of the town. As people ran out of their burning huts, the troops caught them, tied them up, and took them off to be sold as slaves.[25] In 1870, Samuel Baker reported that when a slave hunt in East Africa netted some old women who could not keep up on the return march, they were clubbed to death.[26]

Nothing satisfied an African like witnessing a brutal killing. A missionary observed a group dancing round the mangled corpse of a beheaded female slave “at the very zenith of their happiness.”[27] In 1857, an explorer wrote that Africans appeared to take pleasure in cruelty: “The sight of suffering seems to bring them an enjoyment without which the world is tame.”[28] According to Sir Richard Burton, an English traveler, during fires in Zanzibar in the 1860s black people were seen adding fuel and singing and dancing, wild with delight.[29] In 1867, Paul Du Chaillu recalled seeing a young African woman’s corpse covered in lacerations into which red peppers had been rubbed, a “common mode of tormenting with these people.”[30] He could only hope that the woman, who had presumably been accused of witchcraft, had died of her wounds and not had to endure “the slower process of agonized starvation to which such victims are left.”

When I was at college, a lecturer told us that when he had staged Shakespeare’s tragedies in Soweto, the audience had laughed at the grimmest scenes. He thought that they were expressing pleasure at not being the victims. It seems possible that they were simply enjoying the sight of human suffering.

When Herbert Ward witnessed Africans walking among the putrefying bodies of victims of a mass human sacrifice, appearing to think nothing of it, he commented that the white man would never be able to conquer his repugnance at the callous indifference to human suffering found everywhere in Africa.[31] To us this seems strange, for we have been brought up to believe that no one’s indifference to human suffering could be more callous than a white person’s.

Yet, the old explorers thought that the life of a child could have intrinsic and not just economic value. Africans were different. In 1847, John Duncan wrote, “So little do they care for their offspring, that many offered to sell me any of their sons or daughters as slaves.”[32]. Sir William Cornwallis Harris wrote in 1843 that Africans would sell their children for the sordid love of gain.[33] All over Africa, according to Mungo Park, writing in 1815, parents might sell their children.[34]

Also in 1815, John Campbell wrote of seeing a child of about eight standing in the dust weeping and looking almost like a skeleton:[35] “Neither the men, women, nor children present seemed by their countenances to express the least sympathy or feeling for this forsaken, starving child”; instead, they laughed and told Campbell that he was welcome to take her with him if he wished. He felt sure that in London the sight of the girl would have excited pity in the hearts of thousands.[36] Think of that: White people feeling sorry for a strange black girl! But perhaps Campbell was right.

What a shame it is that our intellectuals have made such a thorough job of suppressing facts such as those mentioned above, leaving us to seek moral instruction from black people as we ask them how much money they require! They peddle their tales in the name of the idea of racial equality, yet this is not the idea that they drive at, which is one of extreme racial inequality, where blacks, pure and innocent, are being incessantly mistreated by their psychopathic white persecutors.

I wonder what it will take to set the record straight.


[1] For example, the point is made that from the early nineteenth century until the end of the British Empire 250 years later, the British expended vast resources attempting to wipe out slavery and slave trading. In the 1830s or 1840s, a full 13% of the manpower of the Royal Navy was devoted to stopping slave ships leaving West Africa for the Americas, quite apart from stopping slavery elsewhere.

[36] This racial difference has been described in terms of “r/K theory.” Animals with an “r” strategy, such as rabbits, have many offspring after a short gestation and put little effort into looking after them. Those with a “K” strategy, like kangaroos, have fewer offspring after a longer gestation and invest more time in raising them. Compared to white and Asian people, people have an “r” strategy. (The gestation period in black women is slightly shorter than in others.) This was illustrated by the Scottish explorer Robert Moffat, who in 1842 wrote that African children “cease to be the objects of a mother’s care as soon as they are able to crawl about in the field.” (On page 92 HH quotes Robert Moffat, Missionary Labours and Scenes in South Africa, 1842, p. 49, quoting Kicherer.)

George Orwell on Reading the News

…….Early in life I have noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper, but in Spain, for the first time, I saw newspaper reports which did not bear any relation to the facts, not even the relationship which is implied in an ordinary lie. I saw great battles reported where there had been no fighting, and complete silence where hundreds of men had been killed.

I saw troops who had fought bravely denounced as cowards and traitors, and others who had never seen a shot fired hailed as the heroes of imaginary victories; and I saw newspapers in London retailing these lies and eager intellectuals building emotional superstructures over events that had never happened.

I saw, in fact, history being written not in terms of what happened but of what ought to have happened according to various ‘party lines’.

George Orwell, Looking back on the Spanish War, Chapter 4.

“It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true.” – Kissinger

Lindsey Graham, in Line to Join the War Criminals Stand

Spokeswoman of Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova commented on the highly promoted video of Lindsey Graham’s visit to Zelenskyy:

“U.S. Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham said with a satisfied smirk in a meeting with Zelensky: “Russians are dying. We have never spent money so well.”

During the Nuremberg Tribunal, the Minister of Economics of Nazi Germany, Hjalmar Schacht, stated that sponsorship of the Third Reich also came from abroad and named the two largest American corporations: Ford and General Motors. An unspoken deal was made with him – freedom in exchange for silence. Despite the protests of the Soviet representatives, he was released and lived to be 93 years old.

Let me remind you that the embodiment of the American dream, the same legendary Henry Ford was a holder of the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the German Eagle. His factories in Germany not only produced up to 70 thousand trucks a year for the needs of the Wehrmacht, but also used the labor of prisoners, including Auschwitz, for that .

And the German icon of the automotive industry, Opel, belonged to… General Motors. Researcher Bradford Snell describes the role of the corporation as follows: “General Motors was far more important to the Nazi war machine than the Swiss banks. Switzerland was just a repository of stolen money. General Motors was an integral part of the German war effort. The Third Reich could have invaded Poland and Russia (USSR) without the help of Switzerland. But they couldn’t have done it without the help of General Motors.

The Kodak company at its plant in Germany manufactured fuses for aerial bombs, not disdaining to use even the labor of prisoners of war.

The Coca-Cola plant in Cologne, even before its nationalization by the German government, regularly supplied soda to German soldiers. And the famous “Fanta” was actually invented by the Nazis.

The oil giant Standard Oil, through its subsidiary companies, helped Hitler with the shortage of petroleum products, participated in developing synthetic rubber and synthetic fuels. And IBM, beloved by IT people all over the world, produced accounting and control devices for the Nazis, including for oil production. Among other things, the equipment of this company helped to keep track of train schedules to death camps…

And we have to mention banks: JPMorgan Chase & Co also had a hand, and then Chase National Bank, through which multibillion-dollar transactions were carried out, and Berlin had the opportunity to buy dollars and carry out financial transactions overseas. “Chase” cooperated with the German bank “Alliance” even in such a matter as … insurance of property and life of the guards of the concentration camps of the Third Reich.

Senator Graham definitely has some material to draw comparisons. One of their investments led to World War II and the Holocaust.

Now, billions of US dollars are pouring into the insatiable throat of the neo-Nazi Kiev regime. In this regard, I would like to remind the senators and all American beneficiaries how the previous adventure ended”.

Who is Jens Stoltenberg?

Guess who was the UN Peace Envoy to Yugoslavia in 1994? It was Thorvald Stoltenberg, father of Jens Stoltenberg.

by Martin Sieff via Strategic-Culture
First published February 13, 2021

The potential consequences from Stoltenberg’s ridiculous, appalling NATO policies and infantile wet dreams will be horrible, Martin Sieff writes.

Why was the storming of the Capitol “Shocking and Unacceptable” to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg when the violent coup toppling democracy in Ukraine with the open shameless support of the United States and the European Union was not?

“Shocking scenes in Washington, DC,” Stoltenberg tweeted on January 6. “The outcome of this democratic election must be respected.”

Yet hardly more than a month later, Stoltenberg personally welcomed with open arms at NATO headquarters in Brussels the prime minister of Ukraine, head of a government and political system that was established in 2014 with full NATO, European Union and United States support by toppling the genuinely democratic government of President Viktor Yanukovych.

Eager to stoke up thermonuclear tensions between East and West, and not caring at all if nuclear weapons fall on London, New York and Washington as a result, let alone Moscow, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyha proudly declared on February 9 that two new NATO naval bases would open on the Black Sea before the end of this year.

Yet the Black Sea has historically been a crucial defensive a region against invasion for Russia for the past quarter of a millennium since before the American Declaration of Independence in 1776.

The shocking Maidan coup in Kiev in 2014 was accompanied by a wave of killings and out of control mob violence that dwarfed the tiny, embarrassing protest that spilled over into the U.S. Capitol on January 6 and that has now been cynically rewritten in the liberal totalitarian Newspeak of the 21st Century West as an Assault of Huns and Nazi White Supremacist Hoards on All That is Holy and True.

The Democratic Party leaders of Congress – always eager to make further exceptional asses of themselves, now mindlessly record the riot as an “Insurrection.”

By contrast, in the 2014 Kiev real insurrection, President Yanukovych and his family fled Kiev in genuinely fear of their lives. Veteran U.S. Senator John McCain and serving Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland openly prowled the streets of Kiev loudly calling for revolution and the immediate and violent toppling of the constitutional government. Nuland handed out cookies to assure the rioters and revolutionaries that the U.S. government supported them. President Barack Obama and his then-vice president, one Joseph Biden, Jr. kept her in office.

On May 2, 2014, Ukrainian nationalists locked protesters in Odessa’s House of Trade Unions before setting the building on fire. Almost 50 people died and around 250 others were injured in clashes between demonstrators and radicals and the fire, according to the UN figures. No heartfelt tributes in the United States Congress for them! –

Later that same year, Stoltenberg, the former prime minister of Norway, was propelled to be Secretary-General NATO. His only previous experience in a military or any kind of security crisis was letting scores of innocent teenagers in his own ruling Labor Party to be massacred by a single crazed gunman on a supposedly safe island retreat near Oslo on July 22, 2011.

Since then, this ridiculous little “Napoleon of the North” has reveled in the empty pomp and glory of being applauded at a Joint Session of Congress and being acclaimed as a favorite puppet – sorry “statesman” by successive U.S. presidents.

Now, Stoltenberg appears especially focused on pushing the United States and Russia torwards a catastrophic collision over the Black Sea region by maniacally stating:

“I think we have to understand that the Black Sea is of strategic importance for NATO and the NATO allies — our littoral states, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania. And then we have two close and highly valued partners in the region, Ukraine and Georgia,” he proudly proclaimed on February 9.

Not to be outdone, U.S. General Tod Wolters, NATO supreme allied commander (SACEUR), head of U.S. European Command and the latest American four star commander to pull Stoltenberg’s strings added substance to Stoltenberg’s regularly worthless rhetoric.

“Recently … we have strengthened our maritime posture with superb support from Georgia and Ukraine,” Wolters said.

Deeds do follow words, just as the great 19th century German poet Heinrich Heine warned us. The U.S. Sixth Fleet destroyers Porter and Donald Cook have been operating with allies and with Ukraine’s navy in the Black Sea since January. On February 8, the day before Stoltenberg greeted Shmyha in Brussels, both warships, along with a P-8A reconnaissance plane, joined with two Turkish frigates and F-16 fighters in an integrated surface, air and subsurface warfare drill.

Yet as Stoltenberg relentless pushes the United States and NATO towards a crazy head-on clash with Russia, in the only serious life-or-death security crisis he ever had to face, the Napoleon of the North and his then-government proved utterly worthless.

On July 22, 2011, Anders Behring Breivik, a hate crazed young Norwegian neo-Nazi, singlehandedly paralyzed the national security services by setting off a bomb near the prime minister’s house in Oslo that killed eight people.

Amid the confusion, Breivik then traveled out to a youth camp of Stoltenberg’s own ruling Labor Party on a nearby island where he massacred 69 people, almost all of them teens or in their early 20s. There was not a single armed security guard on the island. It was the worst mass killing in Norwegian history.

Stoltenberg had been prime minister for seven years: The appalling state of the security services and of security for the summer camp for the children of his own followers were his responsibility as national chief executive and party leader. He was even due to give a speech at the camp the next day and was preparing it while the young people were being slaughtered. He was never held responsible for his shameful bungles.

The idea that such a man could be raised up only two years later to lead the largest and most wide-reaching military alliance in European history is mindboggling. Nothing Stoltenberg has done in his years running NATO has done anything to unboggle the idea.

Once head of NATO, Stoltenberg underwent a predictable transformation: The lifelong anti-war dove who had protested the Vietnam War in his youth, overnight became an armchair war hawk.

Today, Stoltenberg is all for sucking both Ukraine and Georgia – weak, unstable and violent states lastingly destabilized by U.S. and Western coups – into his (supposedly) mighty NATO.

Stoltenberg’s raving ego and vanity have just been fed by the witless ovations of Congress and his successive American handlers, much as U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, a century ago reveled in the adulation of the crowds of Europe as his own mad, megalomaniacal policies sold them down the river for 30 more years of war, poverty, fear, conquest and death.

In this thermonuclear 21st century, the potential consequences and (literal radioactive) fallout from Stoltenberg’s ridiculous, appalling NATO policies and infantile wet dreams will be infinitely worse.

Polish Overlords and Jewish Tax Collectors

Poland and Lithuania became a joint kingdom in 1386 with the marriage of the Polish queen Jadwiga and the Lithuanian Grand Duke Jogaila, so most of the land that is now Belarus ended up under Polish rule anyway. Although Poland and Lithuania at the time of their union were equal (on paper anyway), in reality Poland, by having perhaps a larger population and more wealth, and a 300-year headstart in being a Catholic Christian country (with the benefits implied), ended up the dominant partner. The Lithuanian elites melted into the Polish aristocracy (szlachta) and lost their Lithuanian identity and culture, and Lithuanian farmers and artisans (who came under the Catholic Church) ended up no better off than other groups of people including Orthodox Eastern Slavs under Polish aristocratic rule.

The Poles kept all these different peoples, Lithuanians, Galicians, Volhynians and others alike, at arm’s length by employing Jews (who could read) to administer their estates and collect taxes from their peasant tenants. It was this situation, with Jews employed as bailiffs and tax collectors, that later became the context for the disastrous and tragic relations between Jews and the peoples ruled by the Polish elites, starting with Bohdan Khmelnitski’s 1648 Cossack rebellion against Polish rule. The rebellion culminated in massacres of thousands of Jewish people in cities and towns by Cossacks and other peoples oppressed by Polish rule, after Polish elites fled and left Jewish people (the majority of whom having had nothing to do with working for their Polish feudal overlords, and who were just as oppressed as the peasants who killed them) in their shtetls to their fate.

The name of Bohdan Khmelnitski was anathema to Jewish people for a long time before World War II because of the huge scale of the violence and killings.

Bear all this in mind, when Poland decides it’s going to resurrect its beloved Commonwealth over western Ukraine.
