Could SCOTUS Be About To Restore Freedom Of Association—Including For (Ahem) Whites?

The Regime Media is upset that the U.S. Supreme Court has accepted a case challenging Affirmative Action in college admissions [The Supreme Court adds affirmative action to its potential hit list, by Nina Totenberg, NPR, January 24, 2022]. And maybe it should be. In the famous case of Marbury v. Madison, Chief Justice John Marshall issued a ruling giving a result desired by the incoming Jefferson administration, namely the disqualification of a Judge appointed at the last minute by the much-loathed outgoing Adams administration. But the ruling also laid down long-term precedent—the right of the Supreme Court to overrule acts of Congress—completely adverse to what Jefferson himself wanted. Perhaps it is time for another Marbury v. Madison decision—this time for civil rights…including whites'.

SCOTUS’ actual grant of certiorari consolidates suits against Harvard and UNC—see Steve Sailer’s posts Harvard to Its Asian Rejects: It's Not You, It's Your Personality and Black Female Judge Rules U. Of North Carolina Can Continue Violating 14th Amendment As Long As It Makes Even The Most Transparent Effort To Obfuscate What It Is Doing—but if Harvard loses, so does Yale, which is being sued by the same people.

The suits seek to find their undergraduate admissions policies invalid under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 due to the apparent discrimination of such policies against Asians [The Supreme Court will hear two cases that are likely to end affirmative action, by Ian Millhiser, Vox, January 24, 2022]. If the elite universities lose, the result would be stark: the cutoff of all federal funding, including any tuition funding for their students.

What has been little noticed, however, is that this suit poses some significant and uncomfortable problems for the Supreme Court.

On one hand, the Court could follow the lead of the federal First Circuit Court of Appeals and simply say, in effect, that while more blacks is good, more Asians is bad

The normalization of mask-wearing likely contributes to rising homicide and car-jacking rates. When I was a kid watching 1960s cowboy TV shows, the term “masked man” was a synonym for “criminal.” (To be precise, bad guy masked men such as horse thieves wore bandana masks over their noses and mouths, while good guy masked men like the Lone Ranger and Zorro wore masks over their eye region.) From TV...

The news on refugees is pretty sparse these days as the Afghan migrants (they are not refugees!) are consuming much of the bandwidth (and cash) the contractors need to expand the refugee program to admit their dream number of 125,000 refugees from every corner of the world this year.

Earlier: Immigration Is A Weapon, EU Says. Democrats Using It Against The Historic American Nation

President Biden held a rare press conference last week. Of course, the fawning White House press corps tossed mostly softball questions, but Biden did finally address his treasonous immigration policy. He offered no apologies and no changes. Instead, he lied about the border crisis he created and said Amnesty was the only solution. The sheer madness of Democratic policy was on display for all the world to see.

As far as the Historic American Nation goes, one of the most frightening aspects of the presser was that Biden is clearly more worried about Ukraine’s borders than ours. The word “border” came up nine times, but only three times did the word refer to our own [Remarks by President Biden in Press Conference, WhiteHouse.gov, January 19, 2022]. The White House and the Leftist Regime Media care more about Russians invading Ukraine than millions of “migrants” invading the United States.

Biden defended his horrible immigration policy twice. A reporter asked about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s warning that Republicans will run in this year’s midterm elections on Biden’s failures, including border security. Biden replied that his “report card” on the border will look pretty good, and that Amnesty would have solved the problem:

Earlier: “He Kept The Faith”—A Conversation With Richard Lynn

Sex Differences in Intelligence: The Development Theory, the latest book by Grand Old Man of psychology Richard Lynn, systematically demonstrates something that has long been obvious to most people (including women, if you know any): On average, men are more intelligent than women—by about 4 IQ points.

(Full disclosure: I have known Lynn since 2012, consider myself his protégé and in 2015 we coauthored Race and Sport: Evolution and Racial Differences in Sporting Ability .

In a dry and dispassionate scientific style, as ever with Lynn’s books, the 91-year-old psychologist takes us on an extremely in-depth tour of all of the available data on sex differences in intelligence, carefully explaining the findings in evolutionary terms. In essence, prior to the development of IQ tests, it was assumed that males must be more intelligent than females because males have larger brains in comparison to their size; and also have accomplished so much more. Lynn cites Charles Darwin himself in this regard: Darwin actually remarked in The Descent of Man that

The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shown by man attaining to a higher eminence, in whatever he takes up, than woman can attain—whether requiring deep thought, or imagination, or merely the use of the senses and hands

How much longer before he is Cancelled?

The problem, as Lynn explores, is that, as IQ testing developed

Earlier, by Steve Sailer: What If Wokeness Is A Russian Conspiracy To Ruin America?

I'm starting to be irritated by the word "Wokeness," I'm not sure why. When "Woke" and "Wokeness" first came up, I thought they were sort of cute.

Since the 1980s, if not earlier, we had been using the cumbersome phrase "Politically Correct" to describe the idiocies of linguistic puritanism about race and sex. "Woke" was a big improvement: it replaced a two-word seven-syllable adjectival phrase with a concise one-syllable adjective. What's not to like?

The derivative terms—"Wokeness," "the Wokerati," "the Great Awokening," et cetera were likewise cute and handy. My favorite derivative is "Wokefishing." That's when cynical young males pretend to be Woke in order to lure Woke young women into sexual engagement. I suspect my 26-year-old son of having practiced Wokefishing, but he denies it.

For more than a decade, I knew every time I called Colin Flaherty, he’d answer with: “Big Man! Whatcha got for me today?”

There was never a phone call that failed to start out this way, with enthusiasm in his voice so infectious I still smile when thinking about how he’d draw out the “ig” portion of “big” in his distinctive Tidewater accent.

“Avuncular” would be the way to describe him: he remembered details of our last conversation and would then inquire about the latest happenings in my life as if he had been there as an intimate observer.

That’s why, when he called one day in the spring of 2020, the surprise of not being greeted with that oh-so-familiar salutation meant I immediately knew something was wrong.

For those who had watched Colin’s videos about black-on-white crime over the years, it had become obvious something was impacting his health. His face was thinning out and his Falstaffian frame seemed to be shrinking.

Though the Churchillian cigar still protruded from his lips as he spoke effortlessly about the latest example of black mob violence and the corporate media’s attempt to obfuscate what was happening, it was alarming to see the physical deterioration of this man who embodied courage and tenacity throughout his life.

We chatted about Ahmaud Arbery hysteria, wondering if this would be the powder keg carefully placed by the corporate media every election year to blast out the Democrat turnout-boosting theme of perpetual black victimization (which Colin had correctly noted was the Biggest Lie Of Our Generation). Then he just blurted it out: “I’m not sure if I’m going to make much longer, Big Man.”

I don’t recall much of what he said next. The shock of a good friend telling me about a disease he wouldn’t beat was too great.

There was a long pause when he finished. He asked: “Are you still there?”

Throughout the insanity of the subsequent Covid lockdowns (“two weeks to stop the spread”) and the overreaction to a virus that 99% of victims survive, I still reflect back on that day as the defining moment of the past two years.

In many ways, I’m still without words for how to answer Flaherty’s question.

When the George Floyd apotheosis happened a month later, and that particular powder keg of anti-white animosity exploded in an orgy of violence, looting, burning and lawlessness—enhanced by academia, Corporate America and of course the corporate media—I ventured into the heart of Richmond, VA.

Walking around that city, with the smoke of the night before from cars and burnt buildings still pungent in the air, I reached the great Robert E. Lee monument, completely desecrated with anti-white  slogans and the acronym “ACAB.”

ACAB—"All Cops Are Bastards.”

The past was being erased in real time, because what Flaherty had called the Biggest Lie of our generation—that of black victimization—had set off a mighty conflagration of anti-white insurrection across America.

Standing at a monument to one of America’s greatest heroes, later torn down in celebration of the George Floyd Hoax, I was doing everything I could to fight back tears.

Then, in one of those serendipitous moments, my cell phone rang.

It was Colin.

He was calling
