Increasingly, social science is dominated by Leftist ideologues who use the remaining respect that academia still has among the public to inculcate students and public alike with their equalitarian dogmas. But there are honorable exceptions. One of these: Peter Turchin, a Russian who is professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut. Turchin, who did PhD at Duke University, applies his “hard science” training to the Woke world of social science, aiming to make clear and testable predictions about the cycles through which civilizations go. According to Turchin, the West is headed for trouble in the 2020s.

Turchin, who keeps a blog about civilization cycles, recently presented his latest findings to the Centre for Complex Systems Studies in Utrecht, Holland, under the heading “A History of the Near Future: What History Tells Us About the Near Future.” [PDF]His conclusions are startling. Based on his detailed number-crunching about events, civilizations that are in decline—as is the USA is—always enter periods of extreme polarization. For the USA, the 2020s will be that period. It will be marred by years of political violence, and intense conflict. Worryingly, Turchin claims that the U.S. more polarized that it was on the eve of the Civil War [ See his Ages of Discord: A Structural-Demographic Analysis of American History].

Turchin argued in his Utrecht presentation that political instability in the USA and Western Europe in the 2020s will be of unparalleled severity, to the extent that it may well “undermine scientific progress.”

Turchin began his presentation by quoting himself from almost a decade ago already making this prediction, one which—in a world of Trump, Brexit and the rise of European “populism”—now seems extremely prescient. Spain has just become the latest country to give a right-wing populist party a substantial vote: the Vox party took 3rd place in the country’s November 10th general election.

From 2008 through 2018, the General Social Survey surveyed 814 non-citizens living in the US. Eighteen of those 814, or 2.2%, reported voting in a US presidential election during that time. The number who would have been legally permitted to have done so would of course be zero. Maybe it’s transcription error, maybe it’s respondent confusion over voting in local or state contests in jurisdictions t...

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com

This week's Main Stream Media news was dominated by the impeachment hearings going on in Congress. I haven't had anything much to say about this, and still don't. I'm not very interested in it, and can't be bothered to engage with the details. Ukraine…whistle-blower…transcripts…quid pro quo…[snoring sounds].

The Democrats have gone all-out nuts. Any human being is susceptible to sour grapes after a disappointment; but when the disappointment arises not from some illegality or gross wrong, but from losing a fair contest under legal or social rules long agreed to, adult human beings swallow their sour grapes and get on with the business of life. A person who doesn't do that is a person who has lost proper adult self-control—no different from a drunkard, a lecher, or a chronic gambler. It's disgusting.

The current clown show in Congress has foreigners laughing at us—I know this from my personal contacts. This, they are saying, this is a serious nation? Leader of the Free World?

Earlier, by Hank Johnson: Is Immigration Wimp Tommy Tuberville REALLY The Best Alabama Can Get To Succeed Jeff Sessions?

The next senator from Alabama will be Jeff Sessions—if President Donald J. Trump doesn’t get in his way. The former U.S. attorney general announced his candidacy last week. Though early reports suggested Trump might try to stop Sessions’ return to Capitol Hill, his odds look good. Prominent conservatives and nearly a dozen Republican senators back him and he sits atop the primary polls. But one Trump tweet could knock him down. That would be a tremendous disservice to one of Trump’s most loyal supporters and to his own agenda. Immigration patriots to Trump: stay your twitter finger.

Sessions served in the Senate from 1997 to 2017 until Trump picked him for attorney general. The first poll released after his announcement gave him a double-digit lead over his nearest competitor, former college football coach Tommy Tuberville. Eleven top Republican senators immediately endorsed his campaign, including Alabama’s Republican Senator Richard Shelby and GOP Senate caucus leaders Roy Blunt and John Barasso. Shelby’s endorsement is huge. It shows that Alabama’s GOP Establishment still supports Sessions’ despite Trump [11 GOP senators support Jeff Sessions' comeback bid for Senate, by Burgess Everett, Politico, November 8, 2019].

Half of Fox News’s primetime lineup is pro-Sessions. Tucker Carlson hosted the former senator the day he announced and Laura Ingraham has tweeted her support.

Ann Coulter, Steve Bannon and probably Breitbart should be expected to back Sessions.

Another plus: Sessions has a $2.5 million war chest.

On hearing the State Department's George Kent and William Taylor describe President Donald Trump's withholding of military aid to Ukraine, the New York Times summarized and solemnly endorsed their testimony:

"What clearly concerned both witnesses wasn't simply the abuse of power by the President, but the harm it inflicted on Ukraine, a critical ally, under constant assault by Russian forces."

"'Even as we sit here today, the Russians are attacking Ukrainian soldiers in their own country, and have been for four years,' Taylor said. 'I saw this on the front line last week; the day I was there a Ukrainian soldier was killed and four more wounded.'"

Kent compared Ukrainian resistance to Russia's intervention on the side of the Donbass secessionists to "our own Minutemen in 1776."

“He wanted me to move my car, but you know, I have my right to park anywhere I wanna park. All my man was trying to do was protect his girl like anybody else would.”

Markeis McGlockton’s girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, July 22, 2018

Yes, Virginia (Dare), there is a War On The White Working Class, and the judicial lynching of Michael Drejka for shooting a black man, at first acknowledged by law enforcement to be self-defense but later converted under black political pressure into an incredible twenty-year jail sentence, is the latest example.

On July 19, 2018, black Britany Jacobs drove her black “boyfriend,” Markeis McGlockton, 28, and their three children to a Clearwater FL convenience store. She parked illegally in a handicapped parking space, even though five adjacent parking spaces were available. The 6 foot plus McGlockton went inside the store with the couple’s eldest child.

White Michael Drejka, 47, admonished Jacobs to obey the parking laws.

The next thing Drejka knew, he was on the ground and in pain. The much larger McGlockton had come out of the store without his child, strolled up to Drejka as if he were passing him, and suddenly blindsided him, flattening him on the asphalt.

McGlockton then moved towards Drejka to continue his battery. His girlfriend Jacobs exited their vehicle, leaving their small children inside, to join him.

Still on the ground, Drejka reached for his concealed pistol, and drew it. Seeing the weapon, McGlockton took a couple of steps back. Drejka shot McGlockton once in the chest. McGlockton staggered back to the convenience door, entered, and fell dead.

Who was the attacker, and whom the attacked?
