An Attempt to Enumerate Compelling Aspects of My Qntra Articles

http://qntra.net/2020/02/chinese-own-california-pension-system-and-use-it-to-fund-development-of-chinese-missiles/

What is compelling about this piece is how it makes obvious that Californians are getting raped in multiple ways. It is also compelling in that it calls things by their true names. Pension fund = ponzi scheme, for example. I personally find the story interesting in how it reveals the weakness of civic nationalism when pitted against actual nationalism.

Of the sources it used, the greater part of the story is probably in this piece, but it is lacking in failing to acknowledge the fraudulent nature of pension funds, and is rather circumspect in its criticisms of Yu Meng.

I don’t know if this aspect is particularly compelling or not, but I like how the last paragraph tied everything together with a line starting with a seemingly innocuous statement of geography.

http://qntra.net/2020/02/usg-welfare-baron-madame-secretary-mike-pompeo-goes-to-senegal-for-security-flavored-welfare-talks/

What I find compelling in this story is how it presents plainly the massive fraud that is foreign aid and the fraudulent nature of those involved. The USG appropriated billions ostensibly for influence in Africa, but only accomplished moar Africans.

The compelling apsect of this story is comparison of the cost of being defrauded. It is obvious at this point that paying any amount for an education outside of the Ivy League is a travesty1. I would also call Larry Ray a fraud since his pupils, according to what they say in the New York magazine article, seem to have learned nothing.

What I found compelling about this story was how it made plain what was left out of the MSM bullshit articles, namely the reason this particular name had to be unhappened, through the contextualization of publicly available hatefacts.

  1. At least if you pay for the Ivy League you have a shot at becoming a Pompeo. []

Review of BingoBoingo's edits of Unpersoning piece

Filed under: Uncategorized — thimbronion @ 7:02 p.m.

Original

Dean Erwin Chemerinsky(WoT:nonperson) archived, an agent of the propaganda arm of the ruling US regime, has moved to change the name of Boalt Hall from that of its current namesake, John Henry Boalt (archived). Elizabeth Boalt, whose husband was a well known Oakland attorney and served in the USG War on Slavery, had donated a sizeable sum of pre-hyperinflation US dollars to the school after his death in 1901. Mr. Boalt’s magnum opus, entitled “The Chinese Question,” had helped serve to all but stop Chinese colonists, known for their exam taking abilities, from entering the country for over half a century through bolstering support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which was not repealed until the Magnuson 1 Act in 1943 by then authoritarian president Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The move comes as the proportion of students with ties to the Communist Party of China, notorious for its ongoing campaign of genocide against China’s Uyghur and Tibetan populations, exceeded 17% of the 2019 University of California Berkeley freshman class, second only to the proportion of white students, which has declined to 21% (archived).

Published Version

Dean Erwin Chemerinsky (WoT:nonperson), a USG propagandist, has moved to change the name of UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall from that of its current namesake, John Henry Boalt (archived, archived). Elizabeth Boalt, whose husband was John Henry Boalt, an Oakland attorney and veteran of the War of Northern Aggression, donated a sizeable sum to the school after his death in 1901. A work by Mr. Boalt’s titled “The Chinese Question,” had helped serve to stop Chinese colonists, known for their exam taking abilities, from entering the US by bolstering support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Chinese exclusion in the US survived through Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1943 Magnuson Act.

The move comes as the proportion of students with ties to the Communist Party of China exceeds 17% of the 2019 UC Berkeley freshman class, second only to white students whose population declined to 21% (archived).

Edits

  • “an agent of the propaganda arm of the ruling US regime” -> “a USG propagandist”2
  • added “John Henry Boalt” to clause describing him in relation to his wife.3
  • changed “War on Slavery” -> “War of Northern Aggression”4
  • removed “had” from “had donated”5
  • “from entering the country for over half a century through bolstering support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which was not repealed until the Magnuson Act in 1943 by then authoritarian president Franklin D. Roosevelt.” -> “from entering the US by bolstering support for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Chinese exclusion in the US survived through Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1943 Magnuson Act.”6
  • “notorious for its ongoing campaign of genocide against China’s Uyghur and Tibetan populations” deleted. 7
  • “which has declined” -> “whose population declined”8
  • “magnum opus” -> “A work by Mr. Boalt’s titled”9
  • linked WoT.
  1. I couldn’t figure out how to draw a clearer connection between the WWII era Swedes bringing in the Chinese vs. the current era Swedes bringing in the Somalis, and Al Franken, etc. []
  2. Much shorter and not much lost. []
  3. I do recall at the time I wrote this clause that I was afraid it wouldn’t be entirely clear to whom it referred. []
  4. I LoLed at the name I chose, makes sense to me. I liked it because it mocks the tendency of the USG to wage war on endemic social structures and not people, while also perhaps slipping under the radar of woke leftists enough to illustrate the hypocricy of the unpersoning of someone who put himself at some risk for the sake of a cause by by an anodyne bureaucrat. At the same time I am aware that “they’re the real racists” is weak rhetoric and the title BingoBoingo used (“Increasingly Chinese Berkeley Considering Appeasement By Chiseling Donor Name Off Building”) more aptly serves the purpose of pointing out the hypocricy by referencing appeasement towards national socialism, which is kind of what the Chinese government is, too. []
  5. Use of the pluperfect was not clearly necessary []
  6. Perhaps authoritarian was a pointless adjective, but I’m not clear on this. It may not have been necessary to highlight the length of time exclusion was enforced, given that dates were already included. “was not repealed” vs. “survived through”, BingoBoingo’s edit here is more concise. There may be something more but I’m not sure. []
  7. I knew this was, again, weak “they’re the real racists” rhetoric. As above, Bingo’s title attains the same end aptly. []
  8. No real need for the more wordy present perfect here. Also “whose” is a better relative pronoun in this case. []
  9. Perhaps magnum opus was over the top and judgmental. []

George

Filed under: Uncategorized — thimbronion @ 5:29 p.m.

I had an interesting conversation yesterday with a guy named George who uses my co-working space to meet his clients. I heard him speaking Spanish with them and asked him after he'd just seen one off what business he was in. It was real estate, and he served a certain class of client - namely those without a legal source of income. He had also worked with many Chinese clients.

He worked hard to get the illegals loans with the smallest down payment possible and without them having a legal source of income. Alternatively for the Chinese, he helped them get loans with down payments large enough to qualify them for some sort of investor visa.

He said his parents were from Mexico, but he grew up in Chicago. He told me that he was having trouble getting his son, who had studied "something computer related in either community college or college or something" to move out of his house. I just thought it was kind of funny that he's personally working to inflate the shit out of housing prices while being annoyed his son who works at Chipotle or Amazon or something can't afford to move out.
