Kagan’s journalist supporters

We at the TOO blog have been emphasizing how Jewish ethnic networking is the real story of the  Kagan nomination. One is led to that conclusion from simply looking at how utterly ordinary she is in terms of scholarly accomplishment or anything else that would qualify her for the court–truly the Harriet Miers of the Obama administration. Now Politico has an article discussing Kagan’s friends among journalists (“Kagan’s journo friends“). Of the 8 journo friends mentioned, 7 have obvious Jewish names, the other, Jonathan Capehart, is a Black homosexual. And two of the comments show that the journalist met Kagan in the context of a Jewish social event:

“I first met Kagan in the mid-’90s when we were both former law clerks for Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit,” wrote The New Republic’s Jeffrey Rosen.

“Elena danced at our wedding in 1986,” wrote The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin. “When my wife, Amy, and I bought our first apartment, Elena’s father was our lawyer.”

Patrick Cleburne has another excellent blog on Kagan. It calls attention to her hostility to free speech, but also makes a point of Kagan’s (Jewish) journo friends, this time at the NYTimes, but also explicitly calls attention to some of her other Jewish connections:

That curious specimen Dick Morris appears on NewsMax.com to ludicrously argue that

Kagan ‘Moderate’ Democrat Tuesday,11 May 2010

Based on the Elena Kagan that I knew, she would be a moderate on the court. She’d be a little bit like Sandra Day O’Connor . .

Morris must really think Newmax.com readers stupid. The New York Times puff piece yesterdayA Pragmatic New Yorker on a Careful Path to Washington
By SHERYL GAY STOLBERG, KATHARINE Q. SEELYE and LISA W. FODERARO.) reports Kagan worked on Liz Holtzman’s 1980 Senate campaign, having also interned with Representative Ted Weiss. She then benefited from the patronage of former Congressman Abner Mikva who as a Federal Judge gave her a clerkship. All dedicated leftists (the first two usually 100% in the Americans for Democratic Action rankings) – and fellow Jews.

But then again, so is Morris. There has been a surprsing amount of MSM comment on the exclusion of Protestants from the Court; this is the boot that hasn’t dropped.

Not only are Protestants excluded, Whites will now be in a minority (3 Jews, 1 Latina, and 1 Black are the new majority). This transformation into a non-White elite is happening with breathtaking speed, so much so that Whites are actually a minority in this elite institution well before becoming a demographic minority. Perhaps this will help to make Whites conscious of what is really happening.

    1st of all, Kevin MacDonald has been a hero of mine for years. That you Dr. MacDonald.

    As an American, who was bapised Catholic, I am appalled that our Protestant family is not represented on the US Supreme Court.

    If it weren’t for Fair minded Protestant folks America would never have become a great
    place to live.

    American Jews have every right to be represented on the SC—but I do not think it is wise for ALL of us to allow them to hold three of the nine US Supreme Court places.

    Angey Jew:”The reality of white failure is that it never had a future.”

    Yeah, Whites are a “failure” – people who conquered and colonized a huge portion of the world are “failures;” the people who invented science and a lot of advanced technology are “failures.” The Whites who work hard to build and uphold a decent society are “failures” at the same time a rabid coalition of Jews and their 3rd world underlings rip White nations apart.

    “We import millions of slaves. Then one day set them free. With no input from Jews. The contrary, Jews were opposed to Abolition. … Ask yourself, what was the White Idea? Why bring them here, unless you imagine in perpetuity a slave holding society? ”

    Jews (primarily Sephardic) almost completely ran the trans-Atlantic African slave trade with some assistance from the British and Dutch (those nations which had very influential Jewish populations who came there after the late 1400s expulsions from Iberia) – and former Iberian Jews also engaged very heavily in the African slave trade in the New World after they were kicked out of Spain and Portugal. You apparently haven’t researched the topic. Jews were the main slave traders who brought Africans to the Americas and the Carribbean from Africa to work on vast monoculture plantations, primarily sugar, rice, cotton, and tobacco, which they then sold back to Europe. They were one of the only groups at the time who had the international shipping connections to pull it off, and they did. Jews ran the African slave trade.

    And of course many Jews opposed abolition because they were profiting mightily from the slave trade and slave labor. Learn something, Jew.

    Jews run the American mass-media. The ‘wigger’ subculture of low-class Whites is a direct result of the images, music, etc coming out of the Jewish owned and ran mass-media. Jews also produced and promoted a whole lot of rap music, and they still do.

    Congratulations Professor MacDonald. It looks like James Petras has picked up on your critique of Elena Kagan and run with it:

    James Petras: Elena Kagan and the Supreme Court: A Barnyard Smell in Chicago, Harvard and Washington

    their absolutely disastrous performances in public office, which no amount of mass media puff pieces could obscure. These Ivy League mediocrities include the foreign policy advocates for the destructive and unending wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan and the leading economic advisers and officials responsible for the current financial debacles. The names are familiar enough: Wolfowitz, Feith, Abrams, Levey, Greenspan, Axelrod, Emmanuel, Indyk, Ross, Summers, Rubin, et al: Prestigious credentials with mediocre, or worse, performances. What is the basis of their rise? What explains their ascent to the most influential positions in the US power structure?

    One hypothesis is nepotism… of a certain kind. Elena Kagan got tenure at the august halls of the University of Chicago in 1995 on the basis of one substantive article and one brief piece, neither outstanding. With this underwhelming record of legal scholarship, she became visiting professorship at the Harvard Law School, published only two more articles (one in Harvard Law Review) and received tenure. Prima facie evidence strongly suggests that Kagan’s ties to the staunchly Zionist faculty at both Chicago and Harvard Law Schools (and not her intellectual prowess) account for her meteoric promotions to tenure, deanship and now the US Supreme Court, over the heads of hundreds of other highly qualified candidates with far superior academic publication records and broader practical judicial experience.

    The public utterances and political writings of innumerable Harvard, Princeton, Chicago, Yale, John Hopkins professors, whether it be on the speculative economy, Israel’s Middle East wars, preventative detention, broad presidential powers and constitutional freedoms are marked by a singular mediocrity, mendacity and an excess of hot air reeking of the barnyard.

    If you do not qualify on the basis of excellent scholarship or broad-based practical experience, your ethnic tribesman will wax ecstatic over you as a “wonder colleague”, a “superb teacher”, a “brilliant consensus builder” and a “world champion fund raiser”. In other words, if you have the right ethnic connections and political ambitions, they can adjust the criteria for tenure at the University of Chicago, the deanship at Harvard Law School and a lifetime appointment to the US Supreme Court.

    Elena Kagan joins a long list of key Obama appointees who have long-standing ties to the pro-Israel power configuration. Like Barack Obama, Elena Kagan started her legal apprenticeship with the Chicago Judge Abner Mitva, an ardent Zionist, who hailed the newly elected President Obama as “America’s first Jewish President”, probably his soundest judgment.

    Of course a Marxist like Petras will never admit to reading your work, but he reproduces virtually your entire critique.

    Mourant, himself Jewish, was a scholar of BLOOD GROUPS at Oxford, he said that Jews have 5% negro blood. That would explain a lot.
    Jews are NOT white, they use crypsis to pose as one of us whilst carrying out the GENOCIDE of the White race, in ALL WHITE HOMELANDS.

    The time for olive branches is over, the Jewish history of EXTERMINATION PLANS for the White race has given us 3,000 years of demonstrated intent.

    Now with Whites on the ropes they seek to pose as “one of us” maybe the Whites of the 1950s and 1960s were that naive, but the Whites that remain are on to them.

    Get with the times.

    The reality of white failure is that it never had a future.

    Tell me, if mouth A preaches tolerance, love, charity, and dignity BUT mouth B preaches segregation, servitude, inbred imbecility, unequal access, what is C to do?

    What is darkey to do?

    That was the schitzophrenic White Idea.

    Now take a second look.

    We import millions of slaves. Then one day set them free. With no input from Jews. The contrary, Jews were opposed to Abolition.

    So the descendants of Slaves remain, here on this soil. They are uprooted, nothing to do with Africa. But they also cannot be welcome here. No one gives a shit about them, they rot. The rot produces recidivists, gang-bangers, what have you.

    Ask yourself, what was the White Idea? Why bring them here, unless you imagine in perpetuity a slave holding society?

    That was the idea, wasn’t it?

    So where do you go from there?

    And you want to blame it on the Jews?

    Back on topic: the Jewish journalists boosting Kagan are significant in two ways.

    They show that elite Jewry has virtually achieved vertical integration. Everything necessary to the elevation of a potentially very important Jew can be done without reaching outside the ranks of members of the tribe. Less reliable outside allies are convenient but rarely essential.

    They show that the mainstream media taboo on discussing groups of Jews doing things that look conspiratorial is strong. So much so that it’s safe or even useful for Jews to do things that might look bad if they were done by non-Jews.

    Of course there is a transformation going on. It’s what Kevin and many social scientists have described for decades.

    Honestly, where did you think the project was headed all this time?

    now you are waking up and scratching your head?

    Really, its more like “whites become minority – whites start acting like minority”….All I’m seeing is the call for White Affirmative Action. I am not hearing any voices, not one saying

    -Let’s work harder
    -Let’s support one another better
    -Let’s make good alliances
    -let’s make it attractive to be a member of our group.

    Ask yourself, why is it that blacks have managed to brainwash hordes of whites into acting like them, identifying with them, and used this to cash in politically?

    Your answer will always be to blame someone – and that’s not a way out.

    For starters you gotta stop navel-grazing. If you want groups like Jews to hitch on to your wagon, you have to be a winner. And you’re not going to become a winner, if all you do is dig the hole deeper.

    That’s all there’s to it.

    But nah, you want to spend your life cutting up “whites” into little subgroups and then depending on their loyalty to some 19th century idea (about which most of you don’t have a clue), condemn this or that subgroup to hell.

    Speaking for myself and not for Kevin MacDonald…

    The non-reception of Elliott Abrams’ Faith or Fear: How Jews Can Survive in a Christian America among daispora Jews was a turning point. You could not ask for an author more militantly and single-mindedly concerned with the Jewish interest, in straightforward terms of demographics and power. Nobody could have been more credible to practical Jews with their eyes on the numbers. (And I do not have any arguments to address to Jews that he did not make with infinitely more personal credibility.) He outlined a new path for Jews in America: stand-offish, unfriendly, single-mindedly aiming to boost Jewish fertility and retention and chop down assimilation, intermingling and dilution of the Jewish focus on what’s good for the Jews in America and Israel; but also fundamentally non-aggressive to the surrounding Christian population, and respectful of as well as keen to woo pro-Jewish Christians. There is no basis in Abrams’ vision for pressing for mass non-White immigration in America. (Why, when the Christian population is already friendly?) There is no basis for pushing socially disintegrative, anti-family policies. (They can do great harm to the Christian population, which is a minor problem, and they can do minor harm to the Jewish population, which is a major problem, and there is no up-side.) It’s based on the uniquely pro-Jewish features of American Christian culture, but in principle it’s exportable. It is a practical, realizable formula for the resolution of all major outstanding Jewish issues with the White populations Jews dwell among in the diaspora. Wow, exciting stuff! And the response of organized Jewry to this was and has been ever since, in practical terms … no interest.

    It is as certain as anything can be that Judaism will never go down this path.

    Instead, the elites of diaspora Jewry have maintained in effect two policies:
    1. To avail themselves personally and institutionally of all the advantages of a Jew-friendly environment, even at the cost of higher than necessary rates of pathologies (from a Jewish demographic point of view) such as intermarriage.
    2. To aggressively, persistently, pervasively and radically reshape the culture, laws, demographics and circumstances of the highly accepting non-Jews around them in ways that are devastating to non-Jewish rivals for collective power, actual or potential.

    This is accompanied by pervasive, persistent, excessively harsh criticism of non-Jewish Whites and their cultures, indications of dislike and a “victimized” out-group mentality, lack of “noblesse oblige” and concern for any long term future for non-Jewish Whites, and a “Holocaust culture” that inherently defines all Whites in competition and conflict with Jews as potential Nazis.

    There’s no indication that leading Jews can turn off this perpetual culture war even if they liked pro-Jewish Sarah Palin types enough to want to stop, which clearly they don’t. They have overly aggressive temperaments, they have historic grievances endlessly re-sharpened by more Holocaust movies, books etc., they have an environment that lets them go hog-wild, and they’re going to go on.

    I give up. Until this stops being the case – and if Elliot Abrams couldn’t change it I have no hope any non-Jew could change it – Jewish interests and White (non-Jewish) interests really are in tension.

    That means that defining “White” as a term that folds together Jewish and non-Jewish interests (and thus in effect denies that non-Jewish Whites have interests separate from and in tension with what Jewish leaders want) would be unhelpful and confusing. That would be the case politically even if there were no genetic differences between Jews and the non-Jewish European-descended peoples, but in fact there are differences.

    I’m a big fan of Jared Taylor. But what we need is not only him saying that Jews look White to him, and in effect that they are fully inside the fold and entitled to solidarity as such; we also need Jewish Jared Taylors saying that non-Jewish Whites look Jewish to them and are entitled to the same solidarity that Jews give to other Jews. (The same, not just similar, because defining Jews as White does not make them merely similar to White.) And that has to be accepted by Jews. And that’s not happening.

    As long as there is a level of ethnic, racial solidarity that Jews reserve for other Jews and not for non-Jewish Whites, in self-defense there needs to be a level of ethnic solidarity that non-Jewish Whites extend to each other but not to Jews. The population in need of that solidarity (against all comers, not just Jews) needs to recognize and care for itself. It needs a label for itself. And there is no better label than White.

    Aaron says: “I hadn’t noticed before that Mr. MacDonald was among those who defines “white” (or “White”) as non-Jewish. Is this based on biological ancestry only, or culture, or on politics too, i.e., seeing Jews as the enemy of (other) whites?”

    You need to read his books. They’re good reading and don’t cost too much.

    It’s not “biological ancestry” only. Nor does it assume “Jews as the enemy of (other) whites”. It does however assume that Jewish genetic interests are distinct from, that is nonidentical with, those of “(other) whites”.

    That means, if you wanted to make statements about what is in the common genetic interest of Whites, almost every sentence would need a proviso “except for Jews, who collectively have a distinct interest, which can be in tension with the interest just mentioned”. That would be an awkward, unnatural and confusing way to speak.

    The payoff is policy. Policy that has radical demographic effects is the crux of the matter.

    In his recent ( April 23rd, 2010) post “Lawrence Auster Gets Unhinged” Kevin MacDonald said:

    “…If you support white ethno-nationalism in the US and provide intensive, effective support for ending and reversing the immigration policy of recent decades (i.e., something approaching the support you presently provide Israel), I would be willing to go to the wall to support Jewish ethno-nationalism in Israel, even at substantial cost for the US.”

    I too would very much like Jews to define their interests as in harmony with non-Jewish White interests, and I would be eager to define non-Jewish White interests as in harmony with Jewish interests. After all, why not systematically favor people who persistently, systematically, effectively and on key issues favor you?

    But I don’t get to decide how Jews define their interests or what policies and populations they favor, and neither does Kevin MacDonald.

    If the question was directed to KMacD, he can answer it, but also see:

    While Sicilians are not considered here:
    Sardinians, another S. Italian group are, and can be compared to the Jewish sample.

    All studies over the last several years clearly indicate that Jews are a “people apart” from every type of European – North, South, East.

    If you’re interested in “politics” then consider that as Kagan is attempting to strip you of your freedom of speech, Scalia will be there fighting it.

    A Methodist comment found elsewhere:

    Jews make up two percent, at the most three percent of the US population—now they have a full third of the US Supreme Court. The other two thirds of the Supreme Court being Roman Catholic ethnics who including illegal aliens may make up a little more than a third of the general US population.

    The White Northern European Protestants who founded and built the United States are NOT represented on the Supreme Court.

    Personally, I don’t see this as a Republican or Democratic partisan issue. I see it as an essential issue of fairness going back to the Protestant Reformation when our ancestors threw off the tyranny, and corruption of the Roman Church, and its Jewish money lenders & indulgence sellers. In those days people actually borrowed money from the Jews to buy indulgences and relics—something like the promises of financial security sold by the Jewish investment houses today.

    Over the years the United Methodist Church, and United Methodists have spent billions, maybe trillions of dollars on building Methodist colleges all over the United States. For what? So a White Methodist Protestant man cannot be chosen for the US Supreme Court? Displaced in our own country by a hostile elite.

    Let’s not forget that we the descendents of the founders of this country have no allegiance to Rome, or to Israel—our only allegiance is to the United States.

    I think it’s time that we review the founding Methodist documents of 1939!

    Off topic for this blog post, but relating to MacDonald’s article in TOO:

    Thank God for Israel! It exposes the hypocrisy of diaspora Jews and thus weakens the Culture of Critique. This is probably why intelligent left-wing diaspora Jews like Noam Chomsky are anti-Zionist: they realize that they would have much greater power if Israel didn’t exist. If someone could talk Israeli out of its suicidal one-state-Palestinian-majority course of action, they would be doing White Americans a favor. I don’t look forward to the day when millions of Israeli refugees arrive in the USA – bitter, angry and ready to engage in Critique.

    Perhaps the withdrawal of US subsidies could shock Israeli into adopting a policy condusive to national survival, before it is too late.
