Subject: Bennett on blacks

The response to Bennett's remarks are more revealing than the remarks themselves.

Bennett, of course, is against all abortions. Period. And that seems to be the real point he was making. In the process, however, he merely revealed the consequence of this ugly racial fact.

Under the regime of Political Correctness, "sensitivity" trumps truth, and being truthful, even accidentally, is considered an outrageous act.

FBI REPORTS & BLACK HATE CRIMES AGAINST WHITES - 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 2002

Blacks arrested more for 'hate crimes'

FBI report confirms higher rate than whites for racial attacks

By Jon Dougherty Although "hate-crime" legislation has been championed by minority groups in hopes it would discourage racially motivated crime, a recently released FBI crime report reveals that a higher percentage of blacks than whites are charged with race-biased "hate crimes."

The FBI's "Hate Crime Statistics" for 1999 show that 2,030 whites were arrested that year for "hate crimes" against blacks, compared to 524 blacks who were arrested and charged with a "hate crime" against whites. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, blacks make up 12.8 percent of the population -- or about 35.4 million of the country's 280 million people -- so, given the arrest rate versus population percentage, the data indicates that blacks are one-and-a-half times more likely to be arrested for a "hate crime" than whites. The Census Bureau's November 2000 statistics listed the nation's white population at 226.8 million, or 82.2 percent of the total.

"In light of this study, it's fair to ask who poses a greater threat to the black community -- racist, violent whites or oblivious black politicians?" said Steve Dasbach, the national director for the Libertarian Party. "Unfortunately, hate crime laws have boomeranged on blacks," Dasbach said in a recent statement. "African-Americans thought that hate crime legislation would protect them, but instead they're being used as another legal weapon to prosecute them." Dasbach also said the FBI study indicated that another 87 blacks were arrested for hate crimes against other blacks.

"Hate crimes aren't just for KKK members anymore. They are now being applied even to same-race crimes ? apparently giving racist police, prosecutors or judges another weapon to use against African-Americans," Dasbach said. The bottom line, Dasbach said, is that crimes against a certain protected class of citizens "should not be treated more seriously than crimes against anyone else." The Libertarian Party has advocated a complete elimination of all "hate crime" laws. "Racist criminals, whether black or white, should be punished for their crimes, but hate crime laws aren't needed to do that," said the party chief.

Officially, Congress has described a "hate crime" as one "in which the defendant intentionally selects a victim, or in the case of a property crime, the property that is the object of the crime, because of the actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, or sexual orientation of any person." The party's position has been echoed by other critics of "hate crimes" laws who say legislation is written in such a way that authorities often have too much arbitrary power to decide whether a crime had a racial undertone.

Many believe that "hate crime" laws, now in 45 states, have hit poor and minority communities the worst. "It is demonstrable that these laws hit the poor and minorities hardest. It wasn't meant that way, but that's the way it is," said Christopher Plourd -- a criminal defense lawyer who has represented a number of clients charged with "hate crimes" -- in an Oct. 30 interview with columnist Arianna Huffington. "In the same way that [police] don't go on white college campuses trying to enforce drug laws, but come to the 'hood, they'll use these new hate crime laws against the NAACP's own constituents," Van Jones, director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, told Huffington.

FCC Releases Orders for Internet Backdoor Wiretap Access

by Brendan Coyne

Sep 29 - Quietly last week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a 59-page document outlining new rules forcing broadband internet and voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone service providers to open up their systems to federal, state and local law enforcement officials.

In releasing the rules, the FCC opened up a 30-day public comment period. The regulations, which are planned for implementation in 2007, were decided upon in the beginning of August and made public Friday without a news release or other announcement.

Opponents of the proposed rules argue that the "backdoor" requirements pose the opportunity for privacy rights violations and will be prohibitively expensive for companies and the consumers they will ultimately pass the cost along to. In addition, Internet phone companies allege that the FCC rules are designed to prop up faltering traditional telephone companies, which are losing ground in competition with the relatively versatile and inexpensive VoIP services.

In a statement yesterday, Electronic Freedom Foundation attorney Kurt Opsahl said that "a tech mandate requiring backdoors in the Internet endangers the privacy of innocent people, stifles innovation and risks the Internet as a forum for free and open expression."

Opsahl's organization is a nonprofit electronic privacy advocate that has grown vocal in opposition to increasing government regulation of electronic communications in recent years. The Electronic Freedom Foundation is considering a court challenge to the FCC’s proposed rules, the statement noted.

In a related resolution made public Friday, the FCC agreed to incorporate four new principles into its mission, including a deferential guideline stating that "consumers are entitled to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement." Commission members did not expand on the intent of the statement included in the three-page decision.

NEW YORK -- The fire department's new Muslim chaplain abruptly resigned Friday after saying in a published interview that he believes something other than al-Qaida hijackers brought down the World Trade Center. "It became clear to him that he would have difficulty functioning as an FDNY chaplain," Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta told reporters an hour before Imam Intikab Habib was to be officially sworn in. "There has been no prior indication that he held those views."

Habib told Newsday in an interview published Friday that he was skeptical of the official version of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, which killed 343 firefighters. "I've heard professionals say that nowhere ever in history did a steel building come down with fire alone," he told the newspaper. "It takes two or three weeks to demolish a building like that. But it was pulled down in a couple of hours," he said. "Was it 19 hijackers who brought it down, or was it a conspiracy?"

The 30-year-old Guyana native joined the department as chaplain on Aug. 15 after the FDNY's Islamic Society recommended him for the part-time position, which pays $18,000 a year. Scoppetta said Habib, who was educated in Islamic law in Saudi Arabia and preaches at a New York mosque, had appeared qualified and passed a background check.

Habib made his comments after Newsday asked him whether he thought firefighters would object to a chaplain trained in Saudi Arabia. The country was home to 15 of the 19 men who hijacked four jets on Sept. 11, 2001, crashed two of them into the trade center towers and one into the Pentagon. The fourth crashed in Pennsylvania.

"There are so many conflicting reports about it," the newspaper quoted Habib as saying. "I don't believe it was 19 ... hijackers who did those attacks." He said he didn't know who was responsible for the attacks. "It's sad," said Kevin James, a spokesman for the Islamic Society of Fire Department Personnel. "We had no idea those were his views. He's entitled to his opinion but he's not the right person for the chaplain."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg welcomed Habib's resignation. "The remarks were offensive and the mayor is satisfied that the chaplain has resigned," mayoral spokesman Ed Skyler said.

Some have blamed the destruction of the trade center on a U.S. or Israeli plot designed to whip up support for attacks on Muslim countries. In 2003, New Jersey eliminated Amiri Baraka's position as poet laureate after he wrote a poem suggesting Israel had advance knowledge of the attacks.

Prominent attorney jailed on mob-related charges

By Anthony M. DeStefano

STAFF WRITER

October 1, 2005

A well-known criminal defense attorney will spend the weekend in jail on federal racketeering charges as his family tries to come up with $1 million to post bail.

Larry Bronson, 60, a Manhattan lawyer who was involved in the Pizza Connection trial of the 1980s and has represented reputed crime family members, was accused Friday of attempted witness intimidation and obstruction of justice.

Also charged in an indictment unsealed Friday was Steve Kaplan, an old associate of John "Junior" Gotti. Kaplan once owned the Gold Club, a strip club in Atlanta that was at the center of a sensational federal racketeering trial in 2001. Kaplan pleaded guilty in that case.

Federal officials charged that Bronson used his role as an attorney to help members of the mob use threats and intimidation to tamper with potential witnesses.

At a hearing Friday before U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis of Brooklyn, Assistant U.S. Attorney Caren Myers said discussions Bronson had in his office with two Bonanno crime family mobsters in 2003 were sinister because they talked about who might be cooperating with federal investigators.

Now let's not get HYSTERICAL, Judith, as 90% of women are wont to do!...because that is their HERITABLE nature!

You ought to have been more clever and written, say: 'That if we abort the babies of all races, we could reduce the crime to zero.'

But, no, you exhibited the typical mindlessness of an EMOTING FEMININE MIND, devoid of sound logic!!!--as you've committed the FALLACY OF RELEVANCE, the FALLACY OF THE EXCEPTIONAL CASE, and the FALLACY OF ATTACKING THE MAN (( you may have to to go college and take a course in LOGIC, to figure out what I'm relating here )).

In any case, black men make the HIGHEST contribution to criminality wherever they live IN THE WORLD!, as they suffer both heritable TESTOSTERONE-POISONING and the LOWEST-AVERAGE IQ (Mexican, Central- American and South-American Indians are the next lowest in IQ, with America's Native Indians being a close match).

Read the FBI statistics on black males' criminality, Judith (( read the report following my essay in here: http://foundersamerica3.blogspot.com/; and read the "TRUE COLOR OF CRIME" in here: http://www.amren.com/colrcrim.html )).

If you would happen to learn - to comprehend - the entirety of the contribution liberals' emotion- driven liberalism has made to social chaos - to pain and suffering and death - throughout the world, you'd become physically ill---maybe even OFF YOURSELF!

In any case, Bill Bennett made a huge mistake in being so direct in his truth-telling...in this Orwellian Age.

But I'm happy that he let that rabid cat out of the bag!

The TRUTH is refreshing!!!

jew Rob Reiner /jew pressed on governor bid

At forum against Prop. 75, he appears open to the idea of a future state candidacy.

By Andy Furillo

Friday, September 30, 2005

SAN FRANCISCO - In town to blast a union dues initiative as "ultimately bad for our democracy," actor-director-activist Rob Reiner found himself nudged Thursday to put his celebrity to work for the Democrats as a candidate for governor.

Reiner, at a town hall-type forum sponsored by the No on 75 forces, didn't say no.

He appeared to encourage the idea, in fact, in an exchange with former San Francisco Supervisor Doris Ward. She told Reiner, "I really wish you would one day run for governor because people want movie stars and television stars" in office.

"However good (announced Democratic gubernatorial candidates) Phil Angelides and Steve Westly are," Ward said, "the way to beat (Republican Gov.) Arnold (Schwarzenegger) is with ..."

"... is with a Meathead?" Reiner interjected.

The reference to the character he played in the popular "All in the Family" TV series drew laughs from the crowd. It also did nothing to put a damper on questions that follow him at every stop about his political plans.

Reiner, who is pushing a universal public preschool [ie, get that jew indoctrination started the minute they plop on the mat] initiative for next June's ballot, described himself in an interview as somebody who likes "to build things, making things happen for people."

White House Condemns Bennett's Remarks

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Friday criticized former Education Secretary William Bennett for remarks linking the crime rate and the abortion of black babies. ``The president believes the comments were not appropriate,'' White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. Bennett, on his radio show, ``Morning in America,'' was answering a caller's question when he took issue with the hypothesis put forth in a recent book that one reason crime is down is that abortion is up.

``But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down,'' said Bennett, author of ``The Book of Virtues.''

He went on to call that ``an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky.'' Responding later to criticism, Bennett said his comments had been mischaracterized and that his point was that the idea of supporting abortion to reduce crime was ``morally reprehensible.'' Bennett was education secretary under President Reagan and director of drug control policy when Bush's father was president.

Subject: response to Pyne article

Mr. Linder,

I thought I would respond to the recent article on racial purity to bring clarity to the topic. My comments are in between quotes.

"The suggestions and opinions delivered to address this issue typically form two camps, which I will refer to as 'The Purists' and 'The Pragmatists.' A purist would likely be, as logic suggests, a White man with a strong pedigree (presumably of Nordish descent or extremely fair disposition), and a strict sense of White culture and White phenotypic identity. The reasoning of the purist would operate according to the current working definition of White: a person of Occidental origin possessing no Oriental/Asiatic, Australoid, Semitic, or Negroid genes."

The "working" definition is unscientific. There are Nordic elements in North Africa and West Asia and indigenous Europeans (such as Basques) who look North African or West Asiatic. The geographical boundaries drawn up by humans are artificial and cannot provide a sound basis of racial classification. Moreover, scientists who acknowledge race as a biological concept do not acknowledge a "Nordish" race.

"A pragmatist, on the other hand, will place greater weight on the circumstances of the here and now. With the White gene pool dwindling even within our ancient ancestral homelands, miscegenation accelerating in pace, and unspoiled Aryan blood becoming exceedingly rare, the pragmatist argues that absolute purity is not a feasible directive."

Absolute purity is not found. Caucasoids and Mongoloids only split off from one another 40,000 years ago, according to J.P. Rushton. Thus, the differentiation of Caucasoids from Mongoloids occurred relatively recently since the dawn of man. Since then, racial mixing, even in Northern Europe, has occurred, so that some of Europe's fairest populations have detectable amounts of non-Caucasoid blood based on modern DNA tests. To deny German-Americans, Finnish-Americans or Russian-Americans their "Whiteness" due to a fixation on purity -- which, I might add, sounds like it comes from a third-rate ideology with a third-rate quality of people -- would be unreasonable at best and sheer stupidity at worst in the eyes of millions of mainstream, upright, and even racially conscious White Americans. (I am not even taking into account more recent Amerindian admixture, but the logic is the same).

Furthermore, "unspoiled Aryan blood" -- if we are to define Aryans as Occidentals with virtually no post-Neolithic racial mixture -- is far from exceedingly rare, even in the U.S. The Midwestern states, for example, are full of blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryans without detectable levels of mixture on many of the more rudimentary DNA tests.

"Ideally the cutoff point will be high enough that race-traitors will have great difficulty achieving the baseline through up-breeding. I suggest a maximum of 1/16 Asiatic/Semitic, and a maximum of 1/64 Australoid/Negroid."

This writer doesn't seem to understand that Australoids are much closer to Caucasoids than Negroids are. J.P. Rushton classifies Australoids as Caucasoid, despite their brown skin, probably because anthropologists have found strong skeletal affinities between Caucasoids and Australoids; and some physical anthropologists have even believed that the ancestors of modern Caucasoids looked much like the Australoids (in skeletal structure if not pigmentation) soon after they split off from Homo erectus (although this belief may conflict somewhat with more recent findings).

In any case, Caucasoid/Australoid hybrids often look very European -- more than one would think without experience of observation -- and one-fourth Australoids often do not look Australoid at all. The reason for this is that there is a recombination of genes taking place, which does not occur when Whites cross with Negroids, due to ancient connections between Caucasoids and Australoids who likely split off from the same stem.

The writer also doesn't seem to understand that Semites are a linguistic and not a racial group, and that there are thousands if not millions of Semites (those who today speak a Semitic tongue) in the world who could fit right into Europe, even in the Central and Northern parts.

"The kicker with this model, however, and the reason I refer to it as the 'concentric populations model,' is that the Pure among us, shall be permitted space to mix only among others of Pure descent."

Has this writer had himself tested? Because if he (I will assume he is male) has not had himself tested, assuming he is "pure" is ludicrous. Further complicating this assertion is that there are pure-blooded southern Italians -- as modern DNA tests make abundantly clear -- with black hair, dark brown eyes and olive skin and blond-haired, blue-eyed Nordic Russians or Finns with detectable levels of non-White blood. The irony is that if put into practice, this writer's suggestions would exclude many Nordics and include many Sicilians of pure stock (virtually no mixture since the Neolithic) who look somewhat Levantine. Contrary to what many White Nationalists believe, olive-skinned Whites have existed in Southern Europe since even Paleolithic times, as a cursory look at a Basque population shows.

It is my belief that those who wish to maintain their race and culture have every right to do so. However, racial theorizing and propagandizing should at least be founded on solid anthropological and genetic knowledge. Ideological purists and pragmatists may argue very intensely or bitterly about who should be allowed into the White Club, but at some point scientistic realists must step in and clear the disinformation spread by the ideologues, which can only discredit the movement.

Notorious Jewish tycoon assassinated in South Africa

Top South African Jewish gangster assassinated

Kebble Assassination: The Jewish Mafia Strikes Again

By Independent Correspondent FRED RUNDLE

NSNS Wednesday, 28 September 2005

JOHANNESBURG—Brett Kebble, one of Johannesburg's most notorious Jewish gangsters, was assassinated in the heavily Jewish suburb of Melrose in Johannesburg North last night. He was found slumped over the steering of his luxury Mercedes-Benz, after he died in a hail of bullets fired at him.

He was a member of the African National Congress, funding them with hundreds of millions of Rand.

This morning, Kebble's praises were sung by the ANC Minister Aziz Pahad, the Black National Union of Mineworkers. Many other black organizations also sang his praises and said that Black Empowerment will suffer as a result of his death. A press conference is scheduled for this afternoon, hosted by his legal advisor, who is none other than Judge Heath of the Heath Commission.

Brett Kebble had good connections within the government, especially with the Zuma faction and the Zuma supporting youth league, and he was virtually untouchable.

Regular attempts were made to establish why he never rendered returns to the Department of Revenue Services for the past 10 years and never paid a cent in taxes, despite earning hundreds of millions of Rand.

All attempts by lower ranked officials were soon squashed by high government officials within the department. Kebble's name was linked to a very senior official within the Department of Revenue Services.

Kebble's companies were all recently suspended on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange for not producing financial statements annual returns. Over R238 million in shares went missing, and he refused to divulge how they disappeared.

With the many rumours flying around, and with a lot of outside heat on Kebble, his Jewish bankers refused to provide further finance for his mines, unless he stepped down as the CEO. They then appointed one of their own people, but Kebble remained on the board.

Rumors abound that there was great concern by many of his cohorts in the dark, murky world that Kebble moved in, that their names might come up in any investigation into the fall of the Kebble companies.

The many financial institutions and people who dealt with Kebble, all knew his reputation and his business style, but they gladly continued supporting him, both as financiers and as partners in his "ventures".

Kebble's brother, Guy, today told the media that he will deal with his assassins and take revenge for the death of his brother.

What is interesting is that the Kebble assassination is but the latest in a long line of Jew mafia murders which have taken place in Johannesburg. It is no coincidence that the socialite Jewess Hazel Crane was assassinated on the very same street (Athol Oaklands Road) where Kebble met his end.

In November 2003 Crane, a former public relations executive for the Jew Sol Kerzner (Sun City, Sun International), was on her way to give evidence in a court case against the Jewish gangster (the media politely calls it the "Israeli Mafia') Lior Saat.

Saat was accused of murdering Crane's husband, Shai Avissar—another Jew gangster, when a diamond deal between the two of them went wrong. According to the charge sheet, Saat had bludgeoned Avissar to death with a baseball bat, and had buried his body in a shallow grave on a small holding outside Pretoria.

Crane was gunned down in her car, in virtually identical fashion to Kebble, on the corner of 1st Avenue and Athol Oaklands Drive. This was, however, not the first time a drive by shooting attempt had occurred on Crane's life: In May 2003, another attempt had been made on her in the same fashion, and one of her car's passengers had been wounded.

Saat himself was the subject of a drive by shooting: in June 14, 2001, Saat was wounded in a drive-by shooting while being transported to the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court from the old Brixton police cells. Another prisoner was shot dead and Saat was wounded in the buttocks

Two other Jew mafia members—Julio Bascelli and Carlo Binne, were killed in Mozambique shortly before Saat's arrest in April 2001. Saat himself was arrested in Mozambique and extradited for trial in South Africa.

The case against Saat was finally withdrawn in March 2004, after the last real witness against him, police Investigating Officer Wayne Kukard, was found dead at his home. Saat was released from police custody and fled home to Israel.

Obviously the "Israeli Mafia" is more than willing to act against its members who step out of line, leaving the question as to whom Brett Kebble swindled the last time around, which caused his elimination.

Natan Sharansky's definitions and thesis supports Ernst Zundel

Excerpts:

A Free Society and a Fear Society

People may have differing views of how they would like to exercise their freedoms, but virtually everyone can agree that it is better to live in a free society than a society that is based on fear and repression. How do we define a free society?

A Society is free if people have the right to express their views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm. There is a simple way to determine whether one is living in a free society or not. It is called the town square test: Can a person walk into the middle of the town square and express his or her views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm? If he can, then that person is living in a free society. If not, it's a fear society.

This is not to say that free societies are perfect, or even just. Free societies can fall short in many ways, including discrimination, less than full equality between the sexes, or lack of economic mobility. However, free societies do cross a basic threshold in that they at least aim at securing basic l iberties.

There are only two basic types of societies -- free societies and fear societies -- with nothing in between. This is because some societies tolerate dissent and others do not. When dissent is no longer tolerated, a society fractures into three groups: 1) true believers, 2) dissidents, and 3) doublethinkers.

True believers, as the name suggests, really do buy into the prevailing ideology in a fear society. They are usually a small minority that benefits from the repression they unleash.

Dissidents, on the other hand, are those willing to defy the prevailing order because they recognize the moral bankruptcy of the prevailing ideology.

Doublethinkers, who usually make up the most substantial portion of the population in a fear society, are those who do not say what they think or believe, but more or less parrot the party line in order to avoid punishment. Doublethinkers live in constant tension from the gap between their thoughts and words. And if a fear society is repressive enough, it will appear to outside observers that the entire society consists of true believers, when in fact the majority of citizens are doublethinkers too afraid to speak their mind.
