What can we do as Orthodox Jews to drive massage parlors out of our neighborhood?

My FFB friend says: “Flood them with so many dirty Jews, they will be repulsed, and leave forever! Let the rabbis lead the way…”

Luke: “Does it hurt your davening that there’s a whorehouse next door?”

Friend: “It gives me something to pray for.”

Luke: “Should we be praying for sex workers that they find a life of dignity?”

Friend: “Of course, what else would a frum married man be thinking? I don’t even know other women exist. If you only knew how perfect it is to be married!”

Luke: “Are these Asians massage girls doing jobs that Americans won’t do or are they taking our jobs and threatening marriages?”

“When a man can get a good Asian handjob for $80, does that reduce his dependence on his wife?”

Friend: “I think it reduces the frustration, and makes a better and happier world.”

Luke: “Marriage is frustrating?”

Friend: “Not for me. But for many Jewish men, yes. Just imagine if everybody came to shul smiling.”

“I think we, like the police, should leave massage parlors alone. It’s better than people having affairs or harassing women. If it’s wrong, God will punish them. For the most part you can barely tell that they are there. Only when the clientele become unruly, loud or obnoxious should police step in. I’m sure there are a couple thousand massage parlors in LA county, and the police know all about them. Big deal.”

Luke: “How do we get a cut from every tug to support yeshivas?”

Friend: “That’s a genius fundraiser.”

From Vice magazine: As a result, federal and local law enforcement agencies still know very little about the way that Asian massage parlors operate, except that the networks are highly organized and adept at stashing their money. Officials quoted in the study described a nationwide network of massage-parlor operators who bring women into Flushing, Queens, or Los Angeles, and then rotate them through various AMPs in Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, and across the Midwest.

“We’ve seen cases where a woman is quite popular with the clientele; then they will transfer her to a different spa depending on what events are going on in that city,” one federal law enforcement agent in Atlanta said in the report. “[In] Dallas, they are home to the Dallas Cowboys, the big stadium there, and if they have some event there they’ll transfer their money earners to those clubs. Whereas Atlanta has the SEC championship going on, they’ll have more girls come here.”

Meanwhile, the money earned by the parlors is eventually wired overseas, making the networks difficult to trace. “The question…, and I don’t know the answer to this, is, How organized is the system across all of the cities?” said one Dallas law enforcement official. It’s a “very similar scheme you can see across all of the major cities around the country. Then the money goes back and we can pretty much get it to Hong Kong, but we’re not going to get it to China.”

And clearly, the business model is working. Without any real law enforcement action to crack down on erotic massage parlors, AMPs are continuing to multiply, expanding their tentacles into untapped markets of mongers. “Guys get horny and know they can roll into an AMP and get a known quantity,” Spanky explained. It’s “not rocket science. Where there is demand there are always enterprising people willing to provide a service.”

Voting Republican For Israel

J.J. Goldberg writes: Today you’re invited to join me in a thought experiment. Assume for a moment that you’re the sort of American voter who puts Israel’s safety and welfare first when deciding how to vote. Let’s go further and assume that you don’t believe the American government should be dictating Israel’s policies, but should project American power to deter Israel’s and America’s shared enemies. (If you already feel that way you can still join the experiment with the rest of us.)
Got it? Now, let’s take a hard look at America’s two political parties. Consider the Republican Party, where forthright devotion to Israel is a prerequisite for mounting a presidential candidacy. Then consider the Democratic Party, whose last national convention in 2012 erupted in shouting on the floor when the leadership forced through a platform amendment endorsing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Those aren’t random examples. Surveys over the last decade have shown a steadily widening gap between the two parties in their levels of support for Israel. The Pew Research Center in July 2014 found self-described Republicans sympathizing with Israel over the Palestinians by 77% to 6%, while Democrats’ numbers were 44% and 18%. The two parties had been fairly similar until just after 2000, when Republican support began rising steadily while Democrats remained stable. The parties are similarly split on military spending , defending allies , supporting the United Nations and similar issues. Democrats are moderately in favor of projecting American power around the world, but Republicans are much more so.
So if you’re worried about protecting Israel, it’s a no-brainer, right?

A Fascist Admires Israel

From RadixJournal:

* Israel is a fascist-democracy, the best kind of nation in the world (but for the fact that it was founded on expulsion of so many Palestinians and is supported by globalist Jews who seek to destroy gentile nations around the world).

Israel is a democracy founded on principles of blood-and-soil, identity, heritage, sacred memory, mythic narrative (religious and secular), and etc.

After all, even secular Jews wanted their nation to be in the Holy Land cuz of its historical significance to them. Even secular Jewish narrative is tied to spiritual Jewish narrative cuz that land gained significance to the Jews through God.

Israel is a modern nation with ancient roots. Jews there preserve the past and move into the future.

That is what fascism is about. These fascist themes can be served by a democracy. And Israeli democracy was founded on these fascist principles of fusing tradition and modernity, on nationhood based on race and culture.

It’s not a universalist kind of liberal democracy that says ‘oh gee whiz, anyone can become Jewish and Israeli.’

Jews don’t allow Right of Return to Pallies cuz Jews insist that Israel must be a Jewish state or Jewish-dominated state. Israel must be Jewish in order to preserve what is historically and spiritually sacred to Jewish memory.

That is a fine basis for fascist nationalism. And the fact that it is democratic too makes it all the better cuz dictatorships turn into trouble.

It would have been better for Germany if Hitler had founded a system of fascist democracy. That way, he wouldn’t be permanent leader but could be replaced by someone else by elections. But regardless who rules, it would be agreed by all that Germany is for Germans and for the preservation of German culture, race, and memory, even as Germany accepts modernity and progress into future.

But Hitler went for authoritarian-fascism, and so, Germany was at the whim of his personal prejudices.

Israel is a fascist-democracy cuz both its left and right must agree that Israel must be a Jewish state committed to Jewish power, Jewish tradition, and Jewish identity. And for serving Jewish future.

Another feature of fascism is combination of capitalism and socialism, and Israel has that. Where fascist-socialism differs from welfare-socialism of Western nations is there are conditions placed on welfare in Israel, and all Jews are expected to serve and work for the good of the nation. Even Jewish scholars who don’t work and have lots of babies are serving the system cuz they produce Jews to ensure that Jews will outbreed the Arabs. In contrast, welfare-socialism is just about milking the system to be a bum.

This is why Jews don’t want other nations to follow the Israeli model.

Gentile-nations-acting-like-Israel would mean that every white gentile nation should be for its people, its own memory, its own future. And that would mean gentile nations should favor gentile interests over ones favored by Jewish elites.

Imagine Israeli Jews allowing gentiles to take over Israel’s elite institutions and industries like white nations have allowed Jews to take over their elite institutions.

In Israel, all the banks, media, academia, and etc are controlled and dominated by Jews. If Polish Catholics were 2% of the Israeli population, there is no way Jews would allow them to gain the kind of power that Jews have in France or UK.

In the US, Jews who are 2% of the population control 90% of media. Would Jews allow such to happen in Israel? No way. Why not? Cuz Israeli democracy was founded on blood-and-soil concepts.

This is why what is good for the Jews in Israel is seen as bad for Jews when practiced by gentile nations, i.e. if gentiles in their nations acted like Jews in Israel, the Jewish diaspora would be faced with greater challenges.

Do as the Jews do (in Israel), and disobey what they say.

Some on the Alt Right reject all of democracy, but that is like throwing the baby with the bathwater.

The problem of Western democracies is they were founded on universal principles.

But as Israel has shown, a democracy can be founded on particularist blood-and-soil principles. Because of the founding principles of Israel, even the Israeli left is patriotic, nationalist, and race-ist (racially conscious as opposed to ‘racist’, which means just being nastily bigoted).

Alt Right should support the idea of democracy premised on blood-and-soil identity. A democracy for our people in our people’s land.

* Yea imagine if Hitler had simply deported the Jews to Israel. He would be taken as a hero today instead of the genocidal maniac he was.

* Obsessing over Jews is unhealthy and counterproductive, as it takes away energy from more important issues. Think about it! Even without Jews, so long as liberalism reigns supreme, we are doomed, for there are plenty of self-hating white Gentiles who mercilessly push for our genocide, which is why we should direct our attacks and our focus to the ideology that has kept us down for so long—liberalism. Of course, I am not saying that we move completely to the other side, and all of a sudden start worshiping them; we should continue to expose their hypocrisy whenever we see it, such as when they support Israel as a Jewish state but at the same time want unlimited immigration for white countries.

Moving the Goalposts: What Feminist ‘Rape Culture’ Discourse Is About

From Stacy McCain:

“But the hatred of women is a source of sexual pleasure for men in its own right. Intercourse appears to be the expression of that contempt in pure form, in the form of a sexed hierarchy; it requires no passion or heart because it is power without invention articulating the arrogance of those who do the f–king. Intercourse is the pure, sterile, formal expression of men’s contempt for women . . .”
Andrea Dworkin, Intercourse, 1987

“Male power is systemic. Coercive, legitimated, and epistemic, it is the regime.”
Catharine MacKinnon, Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (1989)

“There are politics in sexual relationships because they occur in the context of a society that assigns power based on gender and other systems of inequality and privilege. . . . [T]he interconnections of systems are reflected in the concept of heteropatriarchy, the dominance associated with a gender binary system that presumes heterosexuality as a social norm. . . .
“As many feminists have pointed out, heterosexuality is organized in such a way that the power men have in society gets carried into relationships and can encourage women’s subservience, sexually and emotionally.”

Susan M. Shaw and Janet Lee, Women’s Voices, Feminist Visions (fifth edition, 2012)

“Ultimately, there was a disenchantment with the ‘No means no’ framework — by requiring women to say no, we reinforce the idea that sex is something women, by definition, have, which men are trying to get, and of which women must be the moral guardians.”
Jill Filipovic, “America, pop culture and tackling sexual assault,” Oct. 10, 2015

You probably have to read a lot of feminist theory (and I’ve been immersed in it for months) to understand that feminist rhetoric about a “campus rape epidemic” isn’t actually about rape. There has been no such “epidemic” on America’s university and college campuses, or anywhere else for that matter. Statistics from the Justice Department show a remarkable decline in the incidence of sexual assault in recent decades, which may be explained by a number of factors, including legislation (e.g., sex-offender registries) and technological advances in law enforcement, including DNA testing and widespread video surveillance. Sexual predators are less likely to get away with their crimes, and more likely to be locked away for long sentences when apprehended, preventing them from becoming repeat offenders.

American women are now less at risk of rape than at any time in the past 40 years, and the emergence of a frantic hysteria about “rape culture” on college campuses therefore seems contradictory — unless you understand how feminist theory “problematizes” heterosexuality.

To those who have read my book Sex Trouble, or followed the continuing discussion here, it is unnecessary for me to explain that feminist theory views heterosexuality as practically synonymous with male supremacy. Andrea Dworkin’s 1979 declaration that “the essence of so-called romance . . . is rape embellished with meaningful looks” was perhaps the most vivid expression of this view, but radical theory has been so widely promulgated within academic feminism (particularly within university Women’s Studies programs) that it is taken for granted.

Anyone who has read Catharine MacKinnon’s Toward a Feminist Theory of the State recognizes that what Jill Filipovic is calling into question — “the idea that sex is something women, by definition, have, which men are trying to get” — is simply normal human heterosexual behavior. The dynamics inherent to the testosterone-fueled male sexual drive as a biological force of nature, and the social customs necessary to restraining this unruly force, are not really controversial, except in feminist theory, which emphatically denies that there is any such thing as “human nature.” Because social customs surrounding sexual behavior have traditionally required certain female responsibilities (i.e., placing women in the role of “moral guardians,” as Filipovic says), feminists have sought not merely to destroy these customs (thus to absolve themselves of responsibility, moral or otherwise) but have attacked as “sexist” our basic understanding of normal sexual behavior.

Women In Tech

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* Women aren’t interested in tech the way guys are and are still slaves to fashion in professions where talent counts for everything. So of course men won’t take them seriously, really if they are concerned about dressing sexy, they aren’t focusing on the job but trying to catch a man(usually a management type – more prestige for the woman). Geeks know this. This is why geeks distrusts guys in suits. They know suits are tech stupid and treacherous.

Really if a woman wants to be taken seriously, stop obsessing over how to dress and focus on the work, not socializing.

As for dating all standard rules apply. Women are looking either for a senior management or engineer type as dating material. Problem they are generally taken. They will not date a equal so it forces them out and trying to meet guys from the humanities. The male humanity majors know you never date a woman scientist because 1) They are much smarter than you and will become contemptuous of her doltish boyfriend quite rapidly. 2) The guy will either be unemployed or making minimum wage. 3) STEM women aren’t exactly the sort of woman a man wants as well. Some are married to their job, others are ice princesses with all the femininity of a block of iron.

And they will not date a bluecollar even he makes a lot more than her because he’s at the bottom of the status totem pole society wise.

* There’s also a shift in types of IQ, with women having higher verbal IQ (is anyone surprised?) and men having higher mathematical and spatial IQ.

The female verbal IQ advantage results in better social skills, which are an advantage in most other areas in life. But that’s not good enough for them…as long as there’s one area men are ahead, there’s a problem.

* That’s only one factor. Another is that women, including the ones who score high on IQ tests, are much more interested in the human, interpersonal world, than in facts, figures or logic. Since this difference has been observed in all cultures and in all time periods that left records, it’s very likely that it’s a biological difference.

* I graduated in 1969 with a BA in physics and mathematics from a very prominent university (ranked among the top ten graduate math programa at the time). There were a fair number of young women in both the math and physics programs and those that could hack it did well and graduated. Many went on to graduate school and succesful careers in physics. The young women who had the capability were respected and treated as colleagues by faculty and their fellow students. Those that didn’t have the capability dropped out of physics and math sooner or later. The same wsas true of their male colleagues.

I have a very strong suspicion that Pollack dropped out of her science major either because she couldn’t hack it or because she lost interest in the amount of intellectual effort that most need to succeed at these fields. Those who are drawn to a STEM major in college don’t usually like to admit that the field is beyond their capabilities unless forced to. I speak from observation and personal experience. I found that at least at the undergraduate level – say through advanced real analysis, complex analysis, abstract algebra through, e.g., Galois theory, and fundamental point set and algebraic topolgy — everything came pretty easily for those with some minimal talent in the field. I left math after a brief foray into graduate work where I found that a great deal more effort was required for success than I had theretofore experienced. But I did complete a Ph.D. in a math oriented field with a thesis that involved some moderately advanced mathematical analysis.

* No, Asians are neither vibrant nor diverse.

This has been another edition of easy answers to easy questions.

But anyways, the holy commandments of diversity have been handed down by the NRC and they are not to be questioned.

Kid of Argentine immigrants, Diverse
Kid Italian immigrant, not diverse
kid of japanese parents born and lived a few years in Brazil came to the U.S., diverse
japanese immigrant kid to the U.S., not diverse

Phillipino or Vietnamese immigrant kids, Not Diverse
Yemeni, not diverse.
Ethiopian immigrant’s kids, diverse.
Samoan immigrant kid, not diverse

Those who violate or question these commandments will be exiled from the cathedral.

* I never see any women garbage collectors.

I also never see any women demanding to be given jobs as garbage collectors.

* The federal government recognizes Asians as a protected class of diversity.

As a result, Asians receive some privileges of diversity, including:

1. Preferential US immigration, citizenship, and asylum policies for Asian people
2. 8a set-aside government contracts for Asian owned businesses
3. Affirmative Action for Asians especially in government jobs
4. Government anti-discrimination laws for Asians
4. Government hate speech prosecutions for Asians
5. Sanctuary cities for Asians, and other protected classes
6. Asian espionage directed at the US is very common
7. American policy allows mass importation of Asian products built with slave wage standards

Diversity theory rationalizes Asian privileges because it claims Asians are eternally oppressed by occidentals.

* There is no real problem with women in engineering (STEM careers) in Silicon Valley. It’s just that they are Indian and Chinese women. That’s because there is no diversity problem in silicon valley engineering. Eyeballing, it’s pretty much something like >80% Indian and Chinese. A lot of the remainder are Russians, Arabs, from the Balkans, stuff like that. So if “diversity” means “not heritage white”, SV has arrived.

I’d guess something like 20% to 40% of the Indians, for example, are female. As with non-Indian programmers/engineers, as soon as they have kids they do tend to target management or QA over programming. That’s mostly a matter of simple time management and ability to schedule, compared to development.

The ironic thing is many of these people are no longer from US universities. At one time it was typical that they would be. No more. No, the real problem now for Yale and Harvard is the big silicon valley tech firms are not hiring nearly as many US programmers from the big name US schools. They are getting a lot of their US programmers in SV direct from the IITs, little colleges in Mumbai and Pune, that sort of thing. The Yales, Harvards, and even to some extent MITs and Stanfords are being shut out, except at the highest level. At the ugrad level, the big companies are going for “good enough, as cheap as possible”.

I think women, white women in particular, when they are ugrads are sharp enough to catch on to what’s happening. Talking to their friends a few grades above them, that sort of thing. If the large companies that women used to look to for secure jobs are preferentially hiring Indians and Chinese, doesn’t it make sense for a white women at Harvard to do something else? Why fight the system?

People that don’t get around silicon valley much might not get this. If you haven’t seen what’s happened so fast in the engineering side of big multinationals it’s hard to believe.

* “a lower variance in IQ”

That’s why there are very, very few girls at the self-driving car team at Google and the network throughput switch design team at Twitter and the Artificial-Intelligence sentiment analysis team at Facebook and the Stanford Computer Science Department and the camera sensor processing optimization team at Apple.

But that level of technical work is a sliver of the profession. Most computer tech jobs require an IQ around 110 or 115 and women exist in equal numbers to men in that range.

But the website for your local insurance salesman and the accounting program at your local small-time law firm are run 90% by men. The guy who maintains the computer network at your doctor’s office is a guy. Those jobs can be done well by anyone smart enough to get a B+ average at community college.

So there’s a lot more to it than IQ variance.

* Undergraduate CS curriculums have become a lot more rigorous, cognitively demanding and theoretically oriented in the past 30 years. Some of this is a response to increased student demand for those departments, so the weed out factor has been upped, particularly in intro classes. CS programs now have 50% or higher dropout rates. Whereas 30 years ago the degree was more about learning simple programming, today knowing how to program is expected upon entry so the courses can focus on complex and mathematically intensive subjects.

Some of this is also driven by the changing nature of the field. There’s been a proliferation of languages, tools, libraries and frameworks. Most of these advances have comparatively favored the highly intelligent. They allow superstar developers to leverage highly abstract patterns to solve entire classes of problem in a single solution, through a highly reductionist non-intuitive and at sometime alien approaches.

Circa 1980 programming in COBOL on a large corporate mainframe system was closer to being an accountant. Yes, it required a definite above average intelligence. But more important was a high degree or organization, rigidly structured thinking, and the ability to meticulously follow rules and manuals. Nowadays programming a bleeding-edge distributed Scala system with a NoSQL backend and a machine learning inference engine is closer to the mental complexity of theoretical physics.

Paul Ryan’s Two Decades Support For Open Borders

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* Last summer, Paul Ryan put out a book as a means of testing the waters for a presidential bid. He appeared several times on WIBC, the major NeoCon/Cuckservative talk radio station in Indianapolis and an Emmis Communications property. “Emmis” means “Truth” in Yiddish/Hebrew and specializes in state of art controlled opposition/ Hasbara propaganda. Emmis is owned and managed by the Ultra Zionist puppetmaster Jeff Smulyan who is also the man behind the Alex Jones phenomena.

At the time Paul Ryan was attempting to tell everyone who would listen that he had become a born again Immigration Patriot. I don’t think the Republican base was buying it, because a year ago WIBC callers were calling for Paul Ryan’s head along Boehner’s and the rest of the beltway Cucks. Today, WIBC no longer takes listener calls.

Having never came close to getting a stealth Amnesty Presidential campaign off the ground, Paul Ryan the House Speaker would sure to accomplish his rabid 25 year “Libertardian” dream of destroying America with Open Borders.

* Ryan is so fanatically pro-open borders that in 1994, well before he became a congressman, he actively campaigned against California’s Prop 187 with Jack Kemp, and penned a 4,000 word rebuttal to National Review’s pro-187 editorial.

The fallout from establishment’s effort to block the democratically-passed 187 is now obvious. Just look at the endless torrent of radical leftist legislation pouring forth from Sacramento, the fact that whites are now barely a plurality in California and well on their way to becoming an outright minority, or the fact that while California voted for Republican presidents thrice in the 1980s, it has not voted for a Republican since.

Boehner, whatever his other real and alleged weaknesses, at least could be counted on to stop amnesty. Ryan is an ideological extremist, and will be a disaster for the GOP.

* Paul Ryan is an Ayn Rand devotee, which is as dangerous on immigration policy as on monetary policy:



Jason Chaffetz is much better than Ryan (or the unintelligible Kevin McCarthy–Rachel Maddow segment linked below is funny) on immigration; I’m not sure if there’s another candidate for Speaker who’s better still. As Mickey Kaus tweeted, “Opponents of amnesty will have to mobilize against Paul Ryan. Get your dialing fingers ready.” Leave your rep a message today and call again tomorrow when offices are open. Show you care. If the permanent-war, climate-change denying, Wall Street stooges Republican Party won’t enforce our borders it has no reason to exist.



* I’m sure this is O/T, but since everyone wants to replace the persons on the ten and twenty dollar bill, when are we going to rename #ColumbusDay what it really is, namely, #CisHetWhiteMalePrivilegeDay ?

Schools would be closed, of course. But banks and financial institutions should remain open, because, after all, that’s how we make money and maintain our privilege. Just a thought: but if you ever wanted a day for plain old white guys, this seems like the most likely candidate.

* For CisWhiteHet Privilege day, everyone spends the day using modern technology, taking part in the fruits of industrial democracy and modern science, and enjoying enormous personal freedom and safety.

* Also, after the studied inarticulateness of W., Ryan was considered a policy wonk, particularly on the budget. Nevertheless, Biden beat him soundly in the VP debate, and he proved to be a lousy campaigner at the national level.

Adventures In Orthodox Judaism

I brought a secular Jewish friend to an Orthodox shul years ago. The rabbi asked my friend why he came. My friend said my name. The rabbi couldn’t hide his dismay.

Mike Wallin: “I brought a friend from work to a shabbos dinner and he had a very Jewish name and enjoyed himself and started attending shuirim and every event and a few weeks go by and we go grab lunch and talk so I ask him how he’s enjoying the orthodox lifestyle and he answers me that he’s having a great time and he never was exposed to it before because his mother’s not Jewish.”

“I have a friend who is a doctor in L.A. and in the 30 years I have known him I never bothered remembering his wives names because I know she’s not going to be married to him by my next visit…this guy’s a Cohen.”

Where Do You Get Your Self-Esteem?

I asked my last GF (who was 40 and whip smart and accomplished and a 6-7 in looks without make-up), what percentage of her self-esteem came from her looks. She said, “100%.”

When I’m in a healthy state, connected to God and to people around me and working the 12 Steps every day, I’m solid with my self-esteem. It does not vary. It does not need external validation. I’m glad to be alive and contributing. When I fall into my default unhealthy state, I think I get 20% of my self-esteem from my looks, 20% from being white Australian, and 60% from my verbal ability. I get 0% of my self-esteem from the being the biggest loser at almost any shul.

My FFB (Orthodox) friend: “So you converted to the bottom of the totem pole? Your Jewish self esteem AMONGST Jews is close to zero, but AMONGST goyim is high. You wear your kippah and Tzitzit with pride.”

My secular Jewish friend: “The question worth asking yourself, is not knowing what you know now would you convert to Judaism, but in your case had you been anywhere but the United States (and let’s face it, that means for someone born in Australia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Great Britain with the possibility of South Africa pre ANC governance) would you have converted to Judaism.

I believe you needed a sufficiently multicultural environment to feel comfortable converting to Orthodox Judaism. If this is true, it is ironic since only by living in the type of society you deplore would you have considered conversion.”

Sailer’s Law Of Female Journalists Strikes Again

WP: A wrinkle in time: Twenty years after ‘The Beauty Myth,’ Naomi Wolf addresses The Aging Myth

Steve Sailer writes in 2007:
