Nicholas Stix counterpunches a glibertarian law professor

There are plenty of right-thinking people out there who have criticisms of Trump. Well and good. I might even come up with a few myself, though I'm reluctant to, because every time it looks like Trump has screwed up, it turn out that it was all part of a deeper, cunning plan, and he comes out on top once again.

But nobody in the right-thinking group is calling on Trump to resign. No, that's the province of the enemy, who is panicking at the realization that Trump might not only slow or stop the American left (liberal and neocon) from its march through the institutions, but maybe even actually reverse it. Horrors!

So to hell with those people. They are, make no mistake about it, our enemies and the enemies of America. They desire our destruction — the destruction of our nation, our institutions, and our very bloodline.

Nichola Stix writes about one such scumbag, whom he calls a 'glibertarian,' a very appropriate term, at his site here [link]:

Glibertarian Law Professor Richard Epstein Supports Putsch Against the President, and Calls on President Trump to Resign; I Call on Epstein to Resign!


[Re: “Glibertarian Law Professor Richard Epstein Calls on President Trump to Resign!”]


By Nicholas Stix

On February 13, law professor Richard Epstein called on President Trump to resign. Epstein asserts that,
The nearly four weeks since President Donald Trump’s inauguration have been the most divisive period of American politics since the end of the Second World War. The sharp lines that everyone is drawing in the sand pose a serious threat to the United States. On the one side stand many conservatives and populists who are rejoicing in the Trump victory as the salvation of a nation in decline. On other side sit the committed progressives who are still smarting from an election in which they were trounced in the electoral college, even as Hillary Clinton garnered a clear majority of the popular vote.

[Epstein neglected to mention the Republican Never-Trumpers, to whom he seems to belong.]

As a classical liberal who did not vote for either candidate, I stand in opposition to both groups. And after assessing Trump’s performance during the first month of his presidency, I think it is clear that he ought to resign.
Richard Epstein identifies himself as a “classical liberal.” If only.


Epstein is what I call a glibertarian. He adopts some libertarian (aka classical liberal) positions, while opposing others, based on political correctness.

Race is central to what is wrong, cowardly, and vicious about Epstein.

A true classical liberal/libertarian (CL/L) would be adamantly opposed to all civil rights laws. CL/Ls demand a minimalist state; civil rights laws create a totalitarian state. Epstein supports civil rights laws. I believe that he does this out of the same sort of cowardice that has Ron and Rand Paul claim to be libertarians, while sucking up to black supremacists, even though Epstein has enjoyed lifetime tenure for most of his adult life!
In a similar vein, unconstitutional and illegal affirmative action costs productive citizens (almost all of whom are white) between $700 billion and $1 trillion per year, but you won’t hear Epstein or the Pauls call for its abolition.

The same political correctness has Epstein call on President Trump to resign, while never, to my knowledge having called on his predecessor, the most racist, criminal, and vicious president in American history, to resign. The reason: Again, racial cowardice.


While Richard Epstein, now 76, spent much of his career as a law professor at the University of Chicago Law School, and presently has a sinecure at NYU Law School, he has never taught at the University of Mars Law School. Thus, like everyone else on Earth, he knows that the chaos of the first weeks of the Trump Administration is not of the President’s doing, but of those forces who are undertaking a putsch in progress: The DPUSA, including the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama,” the leftwing MSM, and seditious moneybags like communist George Soros; some members of the rightwing MSM, e.g., Bill Kristol; the judiciary; the intelligence services (FBI, NSA, etc.), and some Never-Trump GOP pols like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and former president George W. Bush; and to the degree that they do not belong to the groups cited above, the “deep state.”)

The putsch is an extended version of the conspiracies that sought to deny the President the Republican nomination, and then the White House.

Bob Wallace says what he means and means what he says

You can count on Bob for that, always. And you have knee-jerk liberals and knee-jerk libertarians, and even knee-jerk conservatives, but Bob Wallace is that rare pundit who is a knee-jerk realist.

It's not easy being a realist these days. The MAG (Media, Academia, Government) puts out massive effort 24/7 to convince you that what seems real to you is an illusion and that their narrative, no matter how much the real world contradicts it, is the Truth and the Way.

One of the most idiotic aspects of the MAG's narrative is the equality of man. I'm not talking about the Jeffersonian theory that all men should be equal under the law, i. e., should have equal protection under the law and should have no privileges based on noble or royal birth. No, I'm talking about the liberal/neocon madness that all people have equal capacities and all cultures are equivalent to one another, and one should not be preferred over others.

The latter is practically the opposite of the former. Jefferson called for what amounts to equal opportunity, in that the law should not give anybody a special privilege or a head start. The latter ideology calls for, in effect, equal outcomes, because if everybody is equal in the second sense, unequal outcomes can only be caused by some flaw in the system — usually racism or Islamophobia or bigotry or some trendy mental disease. And the remedy for all that is — drum roll — special privileges and head starts for whichever special group is deemed to have been held back by one of those mental diseases.

And no, rearing the children of those unequal types here in the West doesn't turn them into Westerners. (You can butter a cat and put jelly on it, but it's still a cat.) You end up with what the Media lovingly refer to as "home-grown terrorists." The following is from Bob Wallace's site here [link]:

Completely Alien Mentalities

Some foreigners have mentalities so utterly alien to Americans we will never understand them. These are not people who want to be Americans if only given a chance. Not only are their mentalities alien so is their behavior, and since behavior is a function of those mentalities, we will never understand the behavior.I have mentioned before I once saw a black-white-and-white video shot by an American attack helicopter in Iraq (or more probably Afghanistan – it had to be Afghanistan since the country is so bizarre) in which three men were turning turns screwing a sheep. The other two were walking around patiently waiting their turn while the first was merrily humping away at the sheep. How in the world can an American understand behavior like that?
Now we can say, well, they wouldn’t do that if raised over here. Really? I used to work with a young man from Afghanistan and considered him a screwball. I saw him giving some of the men at work lustful looks. It reminded me of James Michener’s novel about Afghanistan, Caravans, about the ages-old Afghan lust for sodomizing pubescent boys.
Are people John Lockean blank slates? (actually Locke wrote “wax tablet”) or is there some profound genetic influence that comes from inbreeding? I opt for the genetic influence, which is just common sense.
Perhaps 40% to 50% of what we are is genetics.
You can make the argument – and I do, as do others – that culture is an expression of genetics. It’s why Islam or Judaism isn’t for white people, but Christianity is. The former have cultures so alien to the West they’ll never be accepted – and both have caused horrible problems in the West.
Can you imagine a culture 33% Wahabi Muslim, 33% Orthodox Jew, and 33% fundamentalist Christian? All trying to share the same land? It wouldn’t work at all. Imagine the bloodshed and murder – and the totalitarian government necessary to keep some kind of order (think of the former “Yugoslavia” and the genocide that happened after the government fell).
Speaking of government, the lunatics in Dubya Shrub’s administration had no idea what they were doing in their attempts to impose the leftist hallucination of “democracy” on Iraq and Afghanistan. They were trying to impose “American values” on cultures that screw sheep and little boys. It why things are worse over there now than before the U.S. invaded. And they’re not going to get any better until we withdraw completely and let them go back to killing and fucking each other – which is their birthright.
Leftists – who have no sense whatsoever – think there would be no problem. We just have to be “tolerant” since all cultures are “equal.” Everyone else would realize there would be violence and “ethnic cleansing.” It’s been the history of the world.
For a while there was a concept by the historically ignorant about the U.S. being a “propositional nation”: move here and you are an American! This is so appallingly ignorant it’s not worth even commenting on.
I had a friend of mine once tell me he read some articles from the 1920s, in which it was governmental policy to allow only two people a year to emigrate from Afghanistan. They obviously understood things a lot better than people in the U.S. government today.
I also once was walking by a swimming pool at night at an apartment complex when an African woman asked me to walk her by the pool. As I was walking with her I saw a black cat by the diving board. I then knew she was just another stupid superstitious African. I never bothered to ask her what she thought it was going to do to her. Perhaps she thought it was a werecat that was going to turn into a gigantic black tiger.
Less funny was an incredibly ugly Arab woman, dressed in that ridiculous black headgear where only her face showed, who fled from my presence when she saw me walking my 16-pound pug (pugs are the most harmless and comedic of dogs). I knew that Muslims consider dogs unclean, so whenever I saw her I would walk my dog by her to see her flee. I found it a little amusing.
These behaviors are not just cultural. They’re genetic (“What’s bred in the bone will come out in the flesh”).
These are cultures – and genes – we don’t need in the United States. Not any Africans with IQs below 70, or Mexicans with mean IQs of 89, or Muslims with mean IQs or 89. Not to mention all their other horrible, genetically-influenced behaviors.

Outlefting the Left

How do leftists behave? Well, they're rude, obnoxious, and they lie about everything. For decades, the right has reacted to the first two by being extra polite and decorous, and to the last by telling the truth. We need to keep that last up — our big advantage over the left is that the truth helps our agenda, while it severely restricts theirs. But we need to rethink those first two.

Being knee-jerk polite by nature, rightists all too easily fall into Mr. Nice Guy mode. I can't get that image out of my head of Romney not knowing quite what to say when Candy Crowley basically called him a liar during his debate. What he should have said was:

"Are you here to moderate this debate, or are you here to assist Obama?"

Or in a more satyrical fashion:

"Tell you what — how about you and I debate, and Obama can moderate?"

Trump would have answered one of those ways. That's why he won. We all got tired of voting for Republicans who couldn't wait to kowtow to Democrats and sell us all out. We liked his counterpunching, and the left is learning that when they're rude, Trump comes back twice as rude.

So you'll never hear me say that Trump should be more "Presidential," meaning that he should let the left push him around. And you'll never hear me say that "we're better than that," again meaning that we should turn the other cheek and let the left do whatever it pleases, while we feebly and apologetically object, and then apologize for objecting.

Here's somebody else who isn't apologetic. Ann Coulter. This is from Vox Day's site [link]:

Immigration is anti-America

Ann Coulter points out the absurdity of the recent Federal court rulings on the God-Emperor's travel ban:
To review:

-- When the president's immigration policy is to promote international communism: The president wins.

-- When the president's immigration policy is to transform America into a different country: The president wins.

-- But when the president's immigration policy is to protect Americans: Some piss-ant judge announces that his authority exceeds that of the president.

This is exactly what I warned you about in Adios, America: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole. Nothing Trump does will be met with such massive resistance as his immigration policies.-----------

Yet Another Quibcag Dump

Here's a good one to use when Vlad Tepes the Impaler comes up in conversation on the net, with a good quote from Matt Bailey. 

And use this one to put idiot SJW's in their place who think military people are warmongers. The illustration is from Girls und Panzer (ガールズ&パンツァーGāruzu ando Pantsā).


Here's one to scare SJW's with. Illustration is of Molly Pitcher.


And that's the truth. Applies to all ideologies. Illustration is of Ranma-chan and Kuno Tatewake, who is genuinely stupid, both from Ranma ½ (らんま½) .


This one point out what an idiot Justin Trudeau is. My theory is that Canada elected him just to prove they could find somebody even worse than Obama. Illustration is Kagura of Gin Tama (銀魂 Gintama, lit. "Silver Soul") in one of her fights.


Here's one you can use when the snowflakes start talking about haters on the net. Illustration is the best Star Trek character ever.


And a very nice quote from Paul Kersey of http://stuffblackpeopledontlike.blogspot.com, illustrated by something I found on the net.




And you know what to do with this one, I'm sure. Illustration is Sensei of  Denkigai no Hon'ya-san (デンキ街の本屋さん?, lit. "The Electric Town's Bookstore").


I had to piece this one together from various illustrations.


Karol Traven gets this one right. Don't know where the illustration came from.


For your use on Facebook and elsewhere.




Finally, a Matt Bailey quote illustrated by Haruhi of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu) 


Jerry Pournelle on the Usurping Judge

From: Jerry Pournelle's Chaos Manor [link]:

A Federal Judge in Washington is trying to say that Trump’s executive orders regarding restricting immigration are not constitutional, and the need to suppress them is so urgent that he has issued a judicial order. This judicial order seems to me to be unconstitutional on its face, because he says that he finds that Trump’s finding of a threat to national security is not his finding, and is not in accord with the historical record since 0/11 2001. 
This is sufficient judicial activism that I think it warrants a Bill of Impeachment by the House; there is little likelihood that the Senate would convict, but the impeachment would send a clear message. Whatever the scope of the Federal Judicial Branch it does not extend to finding of facts about foreign affairs; if there is one thing clear in constitutional law, it is that the President controls foreign policy and foreign affairs in general. Judges generally don’t find facts anyway; juries do that. 
If the executive orders applied to US citizens., the courts could claim some jurisdiction under the constitution; but the President is in charge of who may and may not enter the United States absent relevant legislation: and the relevant legislation, black letter law, gives what amounts to absolute discretion to the President over non-citizen immigrants, specifically mentioning exclusion by country of origin. This appears to be a clear case of a judge saying that what he wants the law to be is in fact the law; it is an unconstitutional act, and deserves impeachment, if only for the encouragement of other judges. I doubt it will happen, but were I a representative I should certainly introduce such a Bill. I doubt it would pass, but I strongly believe in separation of powers, and Judges do not exist to protect non-citizens from being treated as threats to national security, That is the President’s job.
-------------
I agree. Anybody in Congress gutsy enough to start impeachment?

Dialogue Between Katie, Matt, and Ex-Army

Katie:

Social Justice Warriors are leftists who have stared into the abyss until the abyss stared back into them. In their crusade against monsters called racism and sexism, they have become the racist, sexist monsters. Similarly, anarchists are libertarians who have stared into the abyss called "government" until they no longer cared how severely or how often liberty is violated, as long as those who violate it do not call themselves government. The alt-right must walk a fine line and remember not just what it is fighting against, but what it is fighting for, if it is to avoid the mistakes of the monsters of the 1930s.

Matt:

Mistakes of the "1930s":
Not developing a long range strategic bomber.
Not speeding up development of the Me-262 jet fighter.
Attacking the Soviets too soon.
These are examples of ACTUAL Nazi mistakes, defined as things which prevent your objectives and victory. OTOH, it is a mistake to classify "stomping the crap out of enemies in a not nice manner" in and of itself as a mistake. That's how you win. The Left's policy of using violence to suppress Alt Right speech IS a victory for them, UNLESS we use it to get the somnolent average Joes on our side to destroy the Left. That's the objective, not some mythical level playing field that has never existed.
Curing ideology-induced autism, my neverending quest. But if I beat the disease you can too!

I'm not advocating Naziism as my preferred form of government btw. I'm simply pointing out that "not becoming a monster" isn't a goal. If you want to take on Godzilla, you need King Kong.


Most rank and file Left and Right folks in America want to live in basically the same kind of place, in broad strokes. The difference is strategy to get there. The best strategy will be crafted by those willing to acknowledge the most pertinent data, such as the experiment in importing Muslims which Europe has conducted for us.

Ex-Army:
Great points from both. Katie is dead right about the SJW's. They are guilty of all the excesses that they accuse us wrongly of. And of course the Alt-right is all about defending and preserving Western Civilization, which is a nice way of summarizing the bundle of values (to use a word the left is fond of misusing) that motivates us all.

And Matt is also right. It's far to easy to judge the alleged excesses of the Axis in Europe, when we don't have Stalin breathing down our necks and using every sort of brutal method to destroy us. And, seriously, that was a pretty extreme war on the Western Front as well, and if you condemn Axis behavior, what can you say about Dresden during the war [link] and Operation Keelhaul [link] afterwards.

We were stupidly fighting on the side of the Soviet Union, spending American blood and treasure to preserve its existence. We "won," and the Axis' plan to wipe communism out failed. So we had to cope with communist aggression and insurgency overseas for the following decades. And now we're having to cope with the violent "protesters" who are best thought of as spores of the dead USSR.

And that's as extreme as I'm going to get today.
