Wolverine Killed in North Dakota!

The first wolverine recorded in North Dakota in nearly 150 years was killed in North Dakota this week in stunning news that comes on the heels of other reports in recent decades of rare wild animals being seen where they have not been seen in decades or scores of years or in one case, centuries. In the case of North Dakota, this is the first verified wolverine recorded in the state ever and the last record of a wolverine since 1870, 146 years ago. This should be national news possibly along the lines of the recent stories about the first wolverine in Michigan in ~200 years or the first wolverine in California in 90 years.

A wolverine was shot and killed in Western North Dakota on Sunday, April 24, 2016. The wolverine was killed on the Wisness Ranch south of Alexander between Watford City and Williston, North Dakota, probably during the daylight hours but at an unknown time. Alexander, a town of only 223 people, is located in far western North Dakota on the border with Montana. The animal was killed by a ranch hand named Alexander resident Jared Hatter when it was harassing pairs of calves in a field. Hatter reported it on his Facebook page and included photos of the animal.

Ranch workers contacted the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. A biologist from the department examined the animal and determined that it was indeed a wolverine. The department kept the wolverine and took it away to an unknown location. This Facebook post is the initial post made by Hatter on his Facebook page.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department verified the wolverine story. Dale Regnow, spokesman for the Wildlife Division of North Dakota Game and Fish confirmed that the story is true. “Yes, that story is correct. I can confirm that. And I believe we have the animal in our possession now. This is all very exciting news for us,” said Regnow.

So far, there have only been a few sporadic reports of this incident on social media and some small websites, all in North Dakota. There was also a report on a radio station in Winnipeg, Saskatchewan.

This report will be the first major report of the incident and the photos associated with it in the mainstream online media.

There have been a number of unverified sightings of wolverines in North Dakota in the past two decades. They are listed in my report, Wolverines in the Upper Midwest, available here. This is the most detailed report on wolverines in this region on the Internet or possibly anywhere for that matter. Be sure to check it out if you are interested in the subject. It has lots of great photos of the areas in which wolverines were spotted and the general terrain of the region. It also links a number of other reports

The last wolverine recorded in the state was from 1870 when a wolverine was poisoned by a hunter named Henry Bennett at the mouth of Cherry Creek near the Killdeer Mountains. Curiously, that location is quite close to where the current specimen was taken. There were 36 known records of wolverines taken in North Dakota, but none of them were verified. 35 of these are from a single locale, a fort at the mouth of the Penimba River in the northeastern part of the state. These records are all from the journal of a single fur trapper from Montreal, Alexander Henry the Younger.

Henry’s journals date from 1801-1806 when he worked as a fur trapper for the Montreal-based North West Company. During this period, Northeastern North Dakota had not yet been settled by Whites, so his records would seem to be a good record of the wildlife presence and density in this region pre-contact. At this time, the land was the territory of Dakotas, but Chippewas and Crees were also in the area.

He lived for most of the time at a fort at the mouth of the Penimba River. In those five years, Henry reported that 35 wolverines were trapped in eastern North Dakota alone.

The USFWS regards these records as possibly spurious since they nearly all came from a single person, and it is uncertain whether these are records were of wolverines actually taken in North Dakota or whether these were animals taken elsewhere and transported to the fort. However, a closer look at Henry’s journal shows that he was reporting exact locales where his trappers were taking wolverines. He listed a variety of locales, all in eastern North Dakota. The question that some or all of these wolverines were trapped outside of North Dakota and brought to the fort seems incorrect.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service says according to the known habitat associations of the wolverine in the US, North Dakota never ever housed a population of established wolverines during historical times.

However, this conclusion may be erroneous, and wolverine biologists think it may be incorrect.

The USFWS also says that the entire area of the US Northeast, Great Lakes and Great Plains never had an established population of wolverines. However, biologists reported that two juvenile wolverines were taken in the Diamond Lakes area of New Hampshire in a single year, 1918. The biologists felt that the taking of two young in a single year meant that a breeding population of wolverines may have been present at that time. Therefore, the current theory that the Northeast never had an established population of wolverines may be incorrect.

Dr. Keith Aubry, one of the nation’s top wolverine scientists, said that if those 35 specimens were all taken from eastern North Dakota in a five year period alone, then that implies that there was a resident population of wolverines in eastern North Dakota at that time.

The question here centers around the question of what one means by established population. To wildlife biologists, established population means breeding population, and the USFWS argues that the Upper Great Plains did not and does not offer suitable habitat for breeding wolverines due to the lack of snow cover into the late spring.

The FWS also argue that wolverines cannot live in this region because summer temperatures are too high. Nevertheless, the high number of records from North Dakota from 1801-1806 indicates that wolverines were able to live there year round despite high summer temperatures.

In addition, a wolverine recently lived for 5-10 years around the area of Ubly, Michigan where summer temperatures rise to 82 degrees, close to the 85 degrees found in Alexander. But the Ubly story is complicated by other factors. That animals had been live-trapped by someone in Alaska and brought to Michigan somehow and released in that area. A man who had set up the camera-traps that were photographing the animal was also feeding it regularly, so this is not pure case of a naturally dispersing wild animal surviving on its own, and this animal may not have been able to survive there on its own.

Based on this data, the Summer Temperature Theory about wolverines is wrong. Aubry acknowledged that the truth is that wolverines can live in areas where the summer temperatures get up to 80-85 degrees, but they do not live well or thrive in these places.

Based on the number of reports coming in of wolverines not only from North Dakota but also from elsewhere in the Upper Midwest and the long historical record of sightings in this area from the 19th Century, the Great Plains was definitely wolverine habitat pre-contact and even for a period of time after contact before they were possibly extirpated by the fur trade or even more likely by a warming climate, which is the theory that Aubry, suggests. The reason that the prairie may not be habitat now is because of the assumption that there it lacks the deep snow persisting into late spring required for breeding wolverines.

Although the prairie seems to be an odd place to have wolverines, when you think about the great herds of buffalo that used to roam here, perhaps it is not so strange after all. Aubry agreed that the Great Plains would have been perfect habitat for wolverines due to the huge herds of buffalo that would have provided a ready source of large amounts of carrion that would be perfect for a scavenger like a wolverine.

He also said that it was much colder in the US in 1800 than it is today because that was during the tail end of a several centuries-long Little Ice Age where temperatures dropped all over North America. Since then, the continent has been warming up, and what may have been cold enough for wolverines in 1800 is much less suitable habitat now that it is much warmer. Aubry said it may well have been cold enough in 1800 to sustain the snow conditions necessary for wolverine breeding.

He also noted that Canadian scientists say there has been a retraction of the wolverine’s range in Ontario over the past century or so. Whereas once wolverines occurred throughout the province from north to south, they have retreated north and are now found only in the northern half of Ontario. Aubry felt that the retraction of the wolverine’s range from the northeast, the Great Lakes and the Great Plains was probably more due to warming climate than to overtrapping and poisoning. “The wolverine may have been one of the first victims of global warming,” Aubry said.

My post on wolverines in the Upper Midwest has a number of photos of prairie terrain and habitat along with some theorizing on how and why the prairies may have been good habitat for wolverines pre-contact.

Among nearby states, wolverines were last recorded in Indiana in 1852, Wisconsin in 1870, and Minnesota in 1918. Wolverines are resident in the western mountains of Montana and re also known to be present in the Great Plains part of the state in the west. About one month ago, a trailcam snapped a photo of wolverine in north-central Montana. The wolverine was headed towards North Dakota. Two of the nation’s top wolverine experts stated that this wolverine may have been the same one that was recorded in Montana earlier.

Photos of the wolverine are below.

Another side view with an emphasis on the head and front of the animal. Note the black and white dual colored hair color, the shape of the small ears, the elongated snout, the big fangs and of course the huge padded paws. The pads and claws on the feet of a badger look something like this, but on the wolverine, these characteristics may be more accentuated.

Revelations of German Pilot: Shocking Analysis of the “Shooting Down” of Malaysian MH17. “Aircraft Was Not Hit by a Missile,” by Peter Haisenko

Reprint of the great old piece by the German pilot Haisenko. Everything he says is 100% correct.

Malaysia MH17

 

Global Research Editor’s Note

This article  first published on July 30, 2014 contradicts the substance of the recently released Dutch Safety Board Report. We are bringing it to the attention of our readers in view of the soon to be released BBC TV documentary, which suggests that the  MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian jet fighter.  (GR Ed. M.Ch.)

The tragedy of Malaysian MH-017 continues to elude any light of clarity being cast over it.

The flight recorders are in England and are evaluated. What can come of it? Maybe more than you would assume.

Especially the voice recorder will be interesting when you look at the picture of a cockpit fragment. As an expert in aviation I closely looked at the images of the wreckage that are circulating on the Internet.

Peter Haisenko in Cockpit of Condor DC 10

First, I was amazed at how few photos can be found from the wreckage with Google. All are in low resolution, except one: The fragment of the cockpit below the window on the pilots side. This image, however, is shocking. In Washington, you can now hear views expressed of a “potentially tragic error/accident” regarding MH-017. Given this particular cockpit image it does not surprise me at all.

Entry and exit impact holes of projectiles in the cockpit area

Source for all photos: Internet

I recommend to click on the little picture to the left. This is necessary, because that will allow you understand what I am describing here. The facts speak clear and loud and are beyond the realm of speculation: The cockpit shows traces of shelling! You can see the entry and exit holes. The edge of a portion of the holes is bent inwards. These are the smaller holes, round and clean, showing the entry points most likely that of a 30 millimeter caliber projectile.

The edge of the other, the larger and slightly frayed exit holes showing shreds of metal pointing produced by the same caliber projectiles. Moreover, it is evident that at these exit holes of the outer layer of the double aluminum reinforced structure are shredded or bent – outwardly! Furthermore, minor cuts can be seen, all bent outward, which indicate that shrapnel had forcefully exited through the outer skin from the inside of the cockpit. The open rivets are are also bent outward.

In sifting through the available images one thing stands out: All wreckage of the sections behind the cockpit are largely intact, except for the fact that only fragments of the aircraft remained . Only the cockpit part shows these peculiar marks of destruction. This leaves the examiner with an important clue. This aircraft was not hit by a missile in the central portion. The destruction is limited to the cockpit area. Now you have to factor in that this part is constructed of specially reinforced material.

This is on account of the nose of any aircraft having to withstand the impact of a large bird at high speeds. You can see in the photo, that in this area significantly stronger aluminum alloys were being installed than in the remainder of the outer skin of the fuselage. One remembers the crash of Pan Am over Lockerbie. It was a large segment of the cockpit that due to the special architecture survived the crash in one piece. In the case of flight MH-017 it becomes abundantly clear that there also an explosion took place inside the aircraft.

Tank destroying mix of ammunition

Bullet holes in the outer skin

 

So what could have happened? Russia recently published radar recordings, that confirm at least one Ukrainian SU-25 in close proximity to MH-017. This corresponds with the statement of the now missing Spanish controller ‘Carlos’ that has seen two Ukrainian fighter aircraft in the immediate vicinity of MH-017.

If we now consider the armament of a typical SU-25 we learn this: It is equipped with a double-barreled 30-mm gun, type GSh-302/ AO-17A, equipped with: a 250-round magazine of anti-tank incendiary shells and splinter-explosive shells (dum-dum), arranged in alternating order. The cockpit of the MH-017 has evidently been fired at from both sides: the entry and exit holes are found on the same fragment of it’s cockpit segment!

Now just consider what happens when a series of anti-tank incendiary shells and splinter-explosive shells hit the cockpit. These are after all designed to destroy a modern tank. The anti-tank incendiary shells partially traversed the cockpit and exited on the other side in a slightly deformed shape. (Aviation forensic experts could possibly find them on the ground presumably controlled by the Kiev Ukrainian military; the translator).

After all, their impact is designed to penetrate the solid armor of a tank. Also, the splinter-explosive shells will, due to their numerous impacts too cause massive explosions inside the cockpit, since they are designed to do this. Given the rapid firing sequence of the GSh-302 cannon, it will cause a rapid succession of explosions within the cockpit area in a very short time. Remember each of these is sufficient to destroy a tank.

What “mistake” was actually being committed – and by whom?

Graze on the wing

Because the interior of a commercial aircraft is a hermetically sealed pressurized chamber, the explosions will, in split second, increase the pressure inside the cabin to extreme levels or breaking point. An aircraft is not equipped for this, it will burst like a balloon. This explains a coherent scenario.

The largely intact fragments of the rear sections broke in mid air at the weaker points of construction most likely under extreme internal air pressure. The images of the widely scattered field of debris and the brutally damaged segment of cockpit fit like hand in glove. Furthermore, a wing segment shows traces of a grazing shot, which in direct extension leads to the cockpit. Interestingly, I found that both the high-resolution photo of the fragment of bullet riddled cockpit as well as the segment of grazed wing have in the meantime disappeared from Google Images. One can find virtually no more pictures of the wreckage, except the well known smoking ruins.

If you listen to the voices from Washington now who speak of a “potentially tragic error / accident”, all that remains is the question of what might have been the nature of this “mistake” perpetrated here. I am not given to hover long in the realm of speculation, but would like to invite others to consider the following : The MH-017 looked similar in it’s tricolor design to that that of the Russian President’s plane.

The plane with President Putin on board was at the same time ”near” Malaysia MH-017. In aviation circles “close” would be considered to be anywhere between 150 to 200 miles. Also, in this context we might consider the deposition of Ms. Tymoshenko, who wanted to shoot President Putin with a Kalashnikov.

But that this remains pure speculation. The shelling of the cockpit of air Malaysia MH-017, however, is definitely not speculation.

“From Brady to MH-17, Power Defines Reality,” by Robert Parry

Good stuff from Global Research. I have no idea what is going on with the NFL scandal. I assume this guy probably made someone mad. This is how it is in “democratic” America: if you don’t make people mad, you get to do whatever you wish, if you do, they throw the book at you and they even make up 100 things that you never ever did. That’s how it is in the “land of fairness.” Everything Parry writes about M-17 is 100% fact, as usual.

From Brady to MH-17, Power Defines Reality


Power – far more than fact – determines what is defined as true in America, a nation that has become dangerously disconnected from reality in matters both trivial and important.

The way it works now is that, in case after case, the more powerful entity in the equation imposes the answer and the rest of us are invited to join in by throwing stones and jeering at the weaker party. Two current examples make the point:

On the more substantive side, there is the 2014 case of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 shot down over eastern Ukraine, killing 298 people – and blamed by U.S. officials and the Western media on ethnic Russian rebels and Russian President Vladimir Putin. (More on that below.)

On the more personal side is the case of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has been defined by the powerful National Football League as a perjurer for denying under oath the NFL’s scientifically dubious charges that he was part of a scheme to slightly deflate footballs.A Malaysia Airways' Boeing 777 like the one that crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014.

On Monday, a federal appeals court ruled that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had the power to do to Brady or any other player pretty much whatever Goodell wants in acting as judge, jury and executioner.

In the Brady case, the NFL and Goodell were the stronger parties, so they got to define the reality as far as the major U.S. media was concerned, depicting Brady as a liar and cheater although there was no direct evidence that any footballs had actually been deflated.

NFL officials, who launched the brouhaha known as “Deflategate,” admitted that they didn’t know that cold air and moisture reduce a football’s internal air pressure. They simply assumed that the drop in PSI, detected at the halftime of the AFC Championship game more than a year ago, could only come from letting air out of the balls.

A Vendetta on a Roll

Once the vendetta got started, however, it took on a life of its own. In the major U.S. media, the NFL and Goodell controlled the narrative and – with rival NFL owners playing a significant behind-the-scenes role – engineered both a four-game suspension of Brady and the stripping of draft picks from the Patriots.

Despite many scientific experts challenging the NFL’s sloppy scientific claims, the U.S. media – from The New York Times to ESPN – took the NFL’s side while fans of other teams joined in the mocking of Brady and laughing at any attempts to apply science and reason to the case.

New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady.

 

The NFL and Goodell were allowed to decide what was “true” despite their corrupt role in covering up the dangers from concussions to players. In other words, the NFL’s history of lying on a matter as consequential as the safety of all football players – both amateur and professional – was not taken into account when balancing the league’s credibility against the denials of Brady and two locker-room assistants linked to the supposed scheme to intentionally deflate footballs.

And, despite all the time and attention this silly scandal absorbed, there was almost no examination of the science involved and no one in the major U.S. media looked at the conflict of interest in rival NFL owners on the NFL’s Management Council pressing Goodell to impose harsh penalties against Brady and the Patriots.

The Management Council controls whether Goodell gets to keep his $35 million job and these rival owners made anti-Brady recommendations to Goodell as he was considering Brady’s initial appeal of his suspension, according to Goodell’s own appeals decision.

After Goodell rejected Brady’s appeal – calling Brady’s sworn testimony false – the NFL got to choose which federal court would handle the case, picking one in New York that was known to be heavily pro-management.

Although District Court Judge Richard Berman last year overturned Brady’s four-game suspension on largely technical grounds, the deck was stacked against the player when the NFL appealed.

NFL Commissioner Roger GoodellOn Monday, the NFL got a 2-to-1 favorable ruling from appellate judges who reinstated Brady’s suspension and asserted that Goodell had nearly unlimited authority in disciplinary matters. [For more on the history, see Consortiumnews.com’s A Deflategate Slapdown of NFL and MSM.]

New Claims on MH-17

On a far more serious level, there’s the tragic case of MH-17, which has been thrust back into the news by British press reports about an upcoming BBC documentary that cites seven eyewitnesses in Ukraine who reported seeing a warplane in the vicinity on July 17, 2014, just before MH-17 was shot down – and one witness saying he saw the warplane firing what looked like an air-to-air missile.

That account, if taken seriously, would put another chink in the West’s narrative absolving the U.S.-backed Ukrainian government of any responsibility and blaming ethnic Russian rebels and Putin.

In the MH-17 equation, the rebels and Putin have been the weaker parties, subject of an intense U.S.-led propaganda campaign aimed at getting Europe to impose economic sanctions that serve a larger neoconservative goal of weakening and destabilizing Russia.

So, at the time of the shoot-down, eyewitness reports from Ukraine of people seeing one or two Ukrainian warplanes in the sky – a claim apparently backed up by Russian radar – were dismissed in Western media. The Ukrainian government claimed it had no warplanes in the area and that assertion was widely accepted in the West.

But the regime had turned off its primary radar systems over the area supposedly for reasons of malfunction and maintenance. That left only Ukraine’s secondary radar, which tracked aircraft equipped with transponders such as commercial flights but would not show military aircraft, which don’t identify themselves with transponders for obvious reasons of stealth.

The Russians said their radar, looking into Ukraine, appeared to detect a possible warplane approaching MH-17, but they said their primary radar was not saved because it was outside their jurisdiction. They offered only the visual screen images, which Western investigators discounted.

A Divergent Finding

However, within days of the shoot-down, the official U.S. story blaming Russia and what U.S. intelligence was discovering sharply diverged, a source briefed by U.S. intelligence analysts told me. The source said U.S. spy data revealed what looked like an ambush by a Ukrainian warplane and a ground-to-air missile fired by a rogue element of the Ukrainian military associated with a hardline Ukrainian oligarch.A side-by-side comparison of the Russian presidential jetliner and the Malaysia Airlines plane.

A side-by-side comparison of the Russian presidential jetliner and the Malaysia Airlines plane.

The source said CIA analysts gave serious weight to the possibility that the attack was originally intended to kill President Putin who was returning from a state visit to South America aboard his official plane with markings similar to MH-17.

But this analysis contradicted the out-of-the-gate public statements by Secretary of State John Kerry and other senior U.S. officials and thus, the source said, would “reverse the narrative,” making the pro-U.S. Ukrainians look like the bad guys and the Russians not so much.

So, if the source’s information is correct, the needs of America’s global power took precedence over any mandate for honesty in reporting the facts to the American people and the world’s public, including the families of the MH-17 victims.

Since summer 2014, the MH-17 investigation has moved at a glacial pace with the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) and a Dutch criminal investigation still not issuing any official findings as to who was responsible.

Meanwhile, the U.S. government continues to withhold the data that Secretary Kerry cited shortly after the crash, which he claimed implicated the rebels and Russia.Secretary of State John Kerry speaking about the Ukraine crisis on April 24, 2014. (Screenshot from state.gov)

Secretary of State John Kerry speaking about the Ukraine crisis on April 24, 2014. (Screenshot from state.gov)

While Kerry declared that the U.S. government knew almost immediately where the ground-to-air missile was fired, the Dutch Safety Board report last October could only put the firing location within a 320-square-kilometer area (covering both government and rebel territory) and a Dutch intelligence report stated that the only operational missiles in the area capable of downing a plane at 33,000 feet were controlled by the Ukrainian military.

But the Western media still reports routinely that a “Russian-made” Buk missile was fired from rebel territory, leaving the public impression that the Russians were responsible (although the “Russian-made” element was always misleading because the Ukrainian military also uses “Russian-made” equipment).

What impact the BBC program may have on the West’s dominant storyline blaming the Russian rebels and Putin is hard to know since the U.S. government has invested so heavily in that narrative and would face a serious loss of credibility by reversing its position at this late date. [For more on this topic, see Consortiumnews.com’s Kerry Balks at Supplying MH-17 Data.”]

Plus, there is the arrogance of powerful institutions,whether the NFL or the U.S. government, that they can literally define reality for us commoners — and who’s to stop them. [Also, see Consortiumnews.com’s “A Media Unmoored from Facts.”]

The Alt Left on the “Right to Judge”

Jason Y writes:

I don’t really like flaming behavior, but I’m not God, just an ordinary nobody. Also, I don’t have the time to police behavior.

Didn’t the Bible say we should work on our own faults before judging others?.

Can I ask you something? What is wrong with “judging?” The Cultural Left and it seems a lot of this PC-addled young generation are all against “judging.” A woman I was dating was basically an alcoholic. I call her out on her drinking shit. I’m “judging.”

A female friend is being tormented by her alcoholic male roommate who for all intents and purposes is sexually harassing her (either you fuck me, or I throw your ass out on the street). She puts up with this Hell for a long time, and then next thing I know, she has had sex with the idiot a few times.

“Why’d you do it?”

“I dunno. I felt like that.”

“That sucks. You should not fucking that idiot. Bad idea. Plus he’s been treating you horribly. You basically caved in to a sexual harasser. Plus he sucks. He stinks, and he doesn’t even take showers.”

“Stop judging!”

So in other words, every time I don’t like something, I’m “judging.” We have to jump up and down and cheer and yell and scream for every idiot, perverted, sick and deviant behavior that comes down the pike? What for?

Why don’t we have the right to not like things?

Most straight men don’t like the idea of gay sex? That’s “judging?” Bull.

Most straight men are not even really keen on the idea of gay men. At least they don’t want to be around them too much, and most straight men have no desire to have a gay friend. That’s “judging?” Why?

Most straight men do not like sissy, faggoty, flaming, strongly effeminate behavior in men. Guess what? A lot of gay men don’t like it either! Why do we have to like it? If we don’t like it, why are we “judging?”

And the most important question of all is, what in God’s name is wrong with judging? We have a right to like or dislike anything on God’s green earth. We don’t have put a stamp of approval and jump up and down and start screaming and yelling about every weird behavior that humans engage in.

In a larger sense, this is one of the core principles of the Alt Left: “The right to judge.”

Because this is one of the core ways the Cultural Left has destroyed modern society – it has promoted the notion that no one has a right to disapprove of anything. This is behind cultural relativism and really the whole crazy ball of wax. This is why liberals and Lefties scream that I have no right to blast India on here they way I do – I have “no right to judge.” Black pathologies – the wreck call the ghetto? No right to judge. Islam backwards, woman-hating, homophobic, regressive and just anti-liberal and reactionary? Hey, stop hating. Don’t like Hispanic culture all that much, or maybe you might like to criticize it even for being hyper-Catholic, anti-abortion, morally backwards, regressive, reactionary, stupid, racist, patriarchal, misogynistic, violent, wife-beating, idiotically hypermasculine or deliberately ignorant? How dare you judge them!

Happen to notice that Gypsies are a race of thieves, in addition to being probably the worst ethnic group on Earth. How dare you judge those poor people! Why, they’re just victims! Africa a Hellish swamp where human values go to die? How dare you criticize those people. They’re just poor! If you were poor, you might act like a depraved animal yourself! Nigerians are a race of thieves in a continent of wickedness and base behavior? Hey, leave those people alone! Those are sun people! They have black skin so they can soak up the godly chemical melanin. How dare you icemen criticize us sunny melanin-enhanced superpeople?

As usual, every time someone says you are “judging,” there are aggressive, even violent screams and even threats of racism. “Sexist! Racist! Homophobe! Bigot! Regressive! Conservative! Reactionary! Nazi! KKK! White supremacist! Jew! Zionist! Pakistani! Transphobe!”

Nowadays, these are just fancy ways of calling a human being an evil person.

There are a lot of other typical feints. The usual one is, “You do it too.” Want to criticize Blacks or the ghetto mess? Whoops, you can’t! Why not? Because it turns out that all of things we accuse ghetto Blacks of, we Whites do them too! So we have no right to talk, see?

Want to criticize India? Can’t! Americans do it too! Although I am still waiting for someone to show me how a typical American city street looks anything like what you will find in New Delhi. Calling out a nation for being corrupt? Whoops! Can’t do that! Why not? We Americans are corrupt too! But…aren’t there degrees of such things, I mean, a little bit corrupt to real corrupt to stark raving crazy off the charts corrupt? Nope. It’s all the same. Citizens United = all the corruption in India.

This is the rhetorical poison that liberal rhetors have foisted on us in the past several decades. What started out as a liberation movement turned into:

apologism for the worst of human behaviors, to put it mildly,

a ban on critiquing any and all human behavior above the level of the individual,

the obviously insane notion that all cultures are equally good,

the profoundly dubious, even on its face, notion that all of the races are created equal (a misreading of the Founding Fathers, by the way),

a torrent of hatred, rage, abuse, discrimination and career-wrecking against anyone who tries to argue from a point of view of higher human values or achievements to criticize another human group on the basis of lower human values or achievements.

What they are trying to accomplish is two things.

1. Apology for sin. I guess there’s no such thing anymore. Except racism. And sexism. But only White males can be that way. And wait. Rape. But only when White men to do it. And sexual harassment – you know, when straight men try to have sex with women? They need to be castrated!

Bottom line is that the Left has decided to apologize for just about every sinful, depraved and wicked behavior on Earth, as long as it is engaged in by some protected class. And in many cases, the Left has turned former sins into virtues. The homosexual who takes 100 penises and a dozen fists up his anus a year while sampling the entire Pharmacopeia and living a life of utter, base depravity is now the pinnacle of human virtue. Incredible. Protection of the bad, and the inversion of sins into virtues.

2. Assault on the good. When people try to suggest that Gypsy thieves, Nigerian internet grifters, Black rapists, welfare mothers with 75 IQ’s and 10 kids, murderous gang members, petty criminals, venal and corrupt people, perverts and deviants, people who set widows on fire and treat other humans as “untouchable” and in general, crooks, thugs, maniacs and more commonly liars, cheaters, thieves and even more trivially, base, degraded, vulgar, apathetic, morally vapid humans are acting like bad or at least somewhat lousy people, then those good people who called out the bad people are now attacked, assaulted, abused, fired, fined, sued, and generally ruined for the crime of favoring the good over the bad.

So while the Left now protects and even extols the bad, it condemns the good and again inverts morality, in this case turning virtue into sin.

This post has been a bit long getting to the point, but if you have followed this far, I think you catch my drift. Suffice to say that the Alt Left is opposed to the trends of the Cultural Left elucidated above.

Race and IQ in Latin America: Time for a Study?

A. B. Prosper writes:

This is an old post but do remember Hispanic also includes White Hispanics.

If you factor it by race say using the old Casta system for simplicity I suspect you’d end up with different result,

White Hispanics (Criollo and Peninsulars, German and other stock lines) with White IQ, Mestizos with lower, Negritos (Blacks) lower and Indios with probably lower than that, though I’m not sure about the latter.

Some Indian admixture if in a Flynn Effected environment doesn’t seem to matter. My guess and I don’t know is that it reduces the likelihood of very high IQ, but this is unlikely in any case.

Argentina is the Whitest Hispanic country and it has an IQ of 93. That’s not broken down racially of course. Argentina is 21% Amerindian when you look at the entire nation’s genome. Chile is about the same IQ-wise, and the estimates for Indian blood may be even higher. At any rate, a fair amount of Indian blood does not appear to be fatal to IQ or even behaviorally for that matter.

Argentina and Chile function more or less like European countries except for the typical “Latin American sickness” which has always enveloped them. But even a lot of Europe was nearly feudal with wild inequality and  polarized and radicalized politics split into fascists versus communists and socialists and a lot of political violence even up until 70 years ago. Latin American style coups followed by Latin American style dictatorships occurred in Greece only 50 years ago. Latin American style fascist dictatorships ruled Portugal and Spain until only 40 years ago. Europe’s no paradise.

The very heavily Indian countries in Latin America do tend to have lower IQ’s, often IQ ~83-85. Mexico is a mestizo country, and it is somewhere in between Argentina/Chile and the more Indian nations at 90.

A racial IQ study in Latin America would be a nice study though.It might be a bit hard to do as things are so mixed down there that it might be hard to sort out valid groups to test.

I am thinking maybe in Mexico:

Whites:   IQ 96
Mestizos: IQ 90
Indians:  IQ 84

What is interesting is that those figures stick in my mind for those races in Mexico, and my mind keeps telling me that I have seen those figures somewhere. But offhand, I can’t dig up the study and it may not even exist. My mind may just be playing tricks on me, or maybe it was someone’s guesstimate.

94% of all Women Are Maximally Attracted to Men

Nebulous Maximus writes:

What about the really butchy Bull Dykes? They don’t seem to be into teh cock at all.

2% of women are lesbians. Maybe 5% lean lesbian. But even the leaners like a dick now and then! I know because I have met them!

94% of all woman are maximally attracted to males.

6% of all women are maximally attracted to females.

51% of females are sexually attracted to other females, and 49% of women could be technically said to have a bisexual orientation.

Of the 51% of females who are attracted to other women, 86% of them lean straight.

Of the 49% of women who could be technically be called bisexuals, an equal percentage, 86%, lean straight.

Even “bi” women overwhelmingly lean straight.

This is just what I suspected. All over the world, everywhere you go, women are all the same. They all want one thing. The lives of most of them all seem to revolve around one thing.

Most women are all about men. Most girls are all about boys. Even old ladies still like men. I can tell when I deal with them.

Women like dick. They like cock. They like men. They want to have sex with men, and they want to fall in love with men. For many to most women, a major aspect of their daily lives, spiritually, romantically, emotionally and physically, all revolve around men.

When a woman is in a relationship with a man, that is typically the most important thing in her life. When she is not in a relationship with a man, she is often looking rather prominently to start up a new relationship with a man as soon as possible. Most of women’s sexual fantasies are about men. Even women who also fantasize about sex with women too fantasize about men a lot more than women. Most women who have sex with men and women would rather have sex with a man than a woman.

When a drive is that intense, you can’t help thinking that it’s biological. Somehow and in some way, females must be strongly wired up to be attracted to men sexually and to deeply desire romantic sexual relationships with men, typically of a long-term nature.

I assume they pop out of the womb already wired up this way, although the actual sex drive probably doesn’t hit them until they are ~13, at which time it hits like gangbusters.

However, a nonsexual attraction to men and a desire for romance with men seems to be present even in prepubescent girls, as seen in the boy band and teen idol posters decorating any tween girl’s room. She doesn’t want to have sex with any of those men because I don’t think prepubescent girls have a sex drive, but she’s still strongly attracted to them in some sense (she thinks they’re “cute”) and she feels romantic feelings for them. Tween girls around 11 years old also get strong crushes on adult men. The content of these crushes romantic or sexual is not known, but they do exist, as I have experienced them.

Give it up, radfems. Lesbianism will never catch on. Women seem to be biologically wired up to want and prefer men.

(Statistical) Alphas, Betas and Omegas

S. D. writes:

Many women want cuckolds.

They wish to have children and be penetrated by Alpha males but be provided for by Beta males who will raise these children.

In modern society we see this constantly – an attractive woman has “kids from a previous relationship” by a brute and marries a sweet Beta male who provides and cares for these kids.

Omegas are the “swinging bachelors” of the modern world. They prefer casual sex, porn, prostitution or sex tourism.

I agree with the first three paragraphs of our great commenter S.D.’S comment.

The first paragraph is a fact, but do all women want cuckolds? All women want to marry a Beta they can cuck by screwing Alphas on the side? Are there any women who want to marry and fall in love with a Beta and have a great love and sex life with him?

If women want cuckolds, then why is that nearly every woman I end up with demands monogamy of me, often aggressively or even violently? Also most girlfriends I get are jealous of me, often almost to the point of being nuts. They usually don’t trust me and seem to always wonder if I am cheating on them. They are crazy suspicious and jealous of me to the point of seeming like madwomen. Women are also often crazy possessive of me to the point of saying they will beat up or kill any other woman who tries to get her hands on me. If they wanted to get with me to cuck me, why are they so psycho-jealous?

I do not agree at all that statistical Omegas are the swinging bachelors of the modern world. Most swinging bachelors nowadays are statistical Alphas, as this is a rather typical Alpha lifestyle at least when young. Young women are getting so promiscuous nowadays that I think even some statistical Beta young men are swinging bachelors.

I seriously doubt if any statistical Omegas are swinging bachelors, but they can always buy it. Omegas are not attractive to women by default. It’s hard to see how a man who is not attractive to women is somehow leading a swinging bachelor lifestyle.

I have known quite a few players and womanizers in my time, and some might say I led that lifestyle myself for a bit. Most of the “swinging bachelors” that I have known in my life were goodlooking men. The most notorious of all were always, in every single case, very good looking men with male model or Greek God good looks. Womanizing is the province of handsome men, not rejects.

Omegas are the guys who can’t get laid with God’s help. These are the incels.

Statistical Alphas (~20-25% of men) – These men are attractive to most but not necessarily all women. Alphas are first choice of ~80% of women and at any given time, up to 80% of the women may be pursuing the 20-25% of Alphas at least as first choice anyway.

Statistical Betas (~60-65% of men?) – These men are attractive to some but not most women. Betas are the first choice of maybe 20% of women. However, with 80% of the women pursuing the 22% of men who are Alphas, obviously there are not enough Alphas to go around, so many women settle for a Beta on that basis. Also Alphas usually make awful boyfriends and even worse husbands, partly because they are incorrigible cheaters, so most women either think or learn that Alphas make awful longterm partners.

When women hit their 30’s, they often want children and a family, so they settle for a Beta.

However, I feel that many women who get with Betas in LTR’s or as husbands come to love them. I have seen many Beta men in very good relationships with women where the women are deeply in love with them, and the men are getting lots of sex. The idea that all women who settle for Betas are unhappy is not true.

Statistical Omegas (15% of men?)- These men are attractive to none, almost none, or better phrased, few if any women. However, I know seriously Omega men who got with homely or fat women who were not attractive at all and were involved in deep loving relationships with these women with plenty of sex. If you’re an Omega, you can always grab a landwhale or a hambeast, fall crazy in love with her and fuck your brains out. So not all is gloom and doom for Omegas.

A Few Words on Female Homosexuality

RockT writes:

What about female homosexuality? That, I think, is more of a problem when it comes to trendy. fad type sex. That causes habits to form and takes the away from doing important things by screwing around in fruitless relations.

Of course, like all heterosexual men, I am absolutely repulsed by the idea of two women having sex with each other. And the more beautiful the women doing this, the more disgusting it is. In fact, just writing this about two beautiful women having sex with each other made me physically gag. I ran to the bathroom and dry heaved a few times into the sink, but fortunately nothing came up. It is really that disgusting.

Only 2% of US females are lesbians. But no one knows what causes lesbianism, and quite a few lesbians appear to be lesbians by choice. So if women can choose to be lesbians, that opens up an ominous potential that the rate of lesbianism in women could increase beyond 2%, which in my opinion, would not be a good thing. Unless all the psychobitches converted to lesbianism, in which case, I would say it would be a good thing. Actually the psychobitches should all just kill themselves. I would not want to impose them on my sisters, even my lesbian sisters.

Women of my generation do not seem to have gone in for bisexuality in a big way. However, it is not uncommon at all to find a woman of my generation who say, had sex with another woman once, often in a three-way with another woman. And they may have played the passive role too. Less commonly, you will find a woman my age who experimented with bisexuality for maybe a two week phase in their younger years, often when they were nearly blinded with drug and alcohol googles to the point where they barely even knew or cared what they were doing anymore. These women typically come out of these experiences by concluding that they are just not into women at all and that apparently they are strictly dickly.

I don’t date a lot of younger women because most of them think I am too old for them, but I have dated some young women in the last 15 years. They were definitely more open to the idea of bisexuality. Two of them had tried it once, and both told me that they liked it. These women were aged 23 and 27. Other young women I dated told me that they were open to the idea of it or out and out wanted to do it. One of these had already had sex with another woman twice in some booze or drugged up haze, but she told me that “she didn’t remember what happened.”

The impression I get is that females basically like cock. They want dick.

Lesbianism or even lesbian-leaning bisexuality is never going to catch on big. It seems to go against basic female nature.

Most Women All Around the World Seem to Revolve Most of Their Lives around Men

The impression I get is that females basically like cock. They want dick. Even with the woman here who had had sex with women twice, her whole life revolved around men and sex and love with men. Whenever she brought up sex or love, she always talked about men. She talked to me a lot about her sexual fantasies, and they almost always involved only men.

I have dated quite a few women and have been friends with many more. Also since the onset of the Net, I have talked to a lot of women all over the world. My impression is that women all over the world seem to revolve their entire lives or much of their lives around men. Not so much sex, although that is important. More around finding a man to love, form a longterm relationship with and even marry. Marriage and LTR’s have not gone out of style at all. In fact, I think most single women desire first and foremost love and in that context especially an LTR or even marriage. Also most women desire monogamy.

Most Women Seem to Want Monogamy

I do not meet many women who say they are willing to enter into non-monogamous relationships with men. In fact, almost all women I date or even talk to on dating sites tell me they want monogamy. When I date them, they usually tell me that if I want to date them, I must agree to monogamy. Yes, women will agree to open relationships, and I have been negotiating these devious contracts with women since I was 19 years old.

They generally go along with it, sometimes in order to seem “cool” or “hip.” I usually negotiate them on the basis of, “We can both go out with other people, but just don’t tell each other about it. What we don’t know won’t hurt us.” They verbally agree with this, but you can tell that they don’t like the idea much. Maybe they figure it’s the only way they can keep me around, so it’s worth it.

My experience has been that humans don’t do “open relationships” very well. Usually women say, “Oh fine. Open relationship. No problem! Me too!” But then as soon as they find out you got involved with or especially started having sex with or worse, got into a deep relationship with some other women, it’s, “You cheated! You Goddamn sonofabitch! I am going to kill you!” Months of regular threats and abusive phone calls and text messages follow, during which time, your life becomes a bit Hellish.
