Economics Professor “Deirdre” McCloskey Writes A Diversion Away from Truth at Libertarian Reason Site

DONALD MCCLOSKEY BECAME DEIRDRE MCCLOSKY SOME DECADES AGO.

Deirdre McCloskey no longer has her dick.

Wikipedia

Deirdre Nansen McCloskey (born September 11, 1942),[1] formerly known as Donald N. McCloskey, is the Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). She is also adjunct professor of Philosophy and Classics there, and for five years was a visiting Professor of philosophy at Erasmus University, Rotterdam. Since October 2007 she has received six honorary doctorates.[2] In 2013, she received the Julian L. Simon Memorial Award from the Competitive Enterprise Institute for her work examining factors in history that led to advancement in human achievement and prosperity.[3] Her main research interests include the origins of the modern world, the misuse of statistical significance in economics and other sciences, and the study of capitalism, among many others.

I’m not going to comment on gender fluidity, women with penises, or even on how highly honored economics professors get things wrong all the time.

Instead, let’s get the flavor of Dr. McCloskey’s argument and then fire back with some common sense. In this excerpt she focuses on the auto industry.

Excerpt from McCloskey writing at Reason

The Myth of Technological Unemployment

Otherwise sensible folk are, for some reason, terrified by robots. Yet the results of automation are good overall. Workers move from wretched assembly-line jobs to better ones standing in white coats monitoring the robots, at the higher wages made possible by the higher tech. Or, even better, they move to jobs outside the auto industry, earning pay that goes further because people can buy the radically cheaper stuff the robots now make.

If their new jobs are not higher paying, it’s probably because the auto union managed to extract monopoly profits from the company, and therefore from consumers. Robert Reich, a reliable source of sweetly leftish errors of facts and ethics, declares that “the decline in unionization [of private companies] directly correlates with the decline of the portion of income going to the middle class.” But paying selected workers on the assembly line more than they can earn elsewhere, at the expense of other, sometimes poorer, workers’ ability to buy cars, is hardly an ethical formula for raising up the working class.

When a Ford plant installed robots, Walter Reuther, a long-ago president of the United Auto Workers union, is said to have asked a manager: “How are you going to get them to buy Fords?” But Reuther’s argument is fallacious. Employees of car companies are a trivial share of the car-buying public. You can’t create prosperity merely by having workers purchase from their own employers.

Reich has accused the following things of driving down American wages: “Automation, followed by computers, software, robotics, computer-controlled machine tools and widespread digitization.” But such innovations have actually raised real wages, correctly measured, because a human supplied with a better tool can produce more outputs. And the point of an economy is production for consumption, not protection of existing jobs.

Consider the historical record: If the nightmare of technological unemployment were true, it would already have happened, repeatedly and massively. In 1800, four out of five Americans worked on farms. Now one in 50 do, but the advent of mechanical harvesting and hybrid corn did not disemploy the other 78 percent.

In 1910, one out of 20 of the American workforce was on the railways. In the late 1940s, 350,000 manual telephone operators worked for AT&T alone. In the 1950s, elevator operators by the hundreds of thousands lost their jobs to passengers pushing buttons. Typists have vanished from offices. But if blacksmiths unemployed by cars or TV repairmen unemployed by printed circuits never got another job, unemployment would not be 5 percent, or 10 percent in a bad year. It would be 50 percent and climbing.

No, Professor, after a great deal of personal anguish, “displaced workers” go to work as assistant managers at Burger King. If. they. are. lucky.

In my experience in academia most (not all) professors who rise up to national prominence are Jew stooges. McCloskey, identified with Milton Friedman’s Chicago School of Economics, is a smart guy … uh … lady. But a lot of his work, if not all of it, is designed to divert attention away from the (((tribe))) pushing the levers behind the curtain.

If you want truth in economics, regular readers know that I go to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, who observes that the American economy only produces low wage jobs. Unemployment may be low by official measures, but in reality because of dropouts in the labor force, it’s much higher than publicized.

When I first discovered Dr. Roberts, I stayed up all night reading every article archived on his site (see blogroll). I won’t be doing the same for McCloskey because he’s not willing to say anything truthful about race, white genocide, immigration, or the gutting of the white middle class. Dr. Roberts (and Pat Buchanan) are two “respectable” thought leaders willing to tell the truth, or at least a large part of it.

I conclude, sadly on my part, that Deirdre is a Jew stooge.

Teen Vogue Sparks Backlash with Tutorial Promoting Anal Sex for Minors

Sodomites are upset with a Christian mum expressing the opinion that a magazine aimed at 11 to 17 year old girls should not be promoting anal sex. Look up anal prolapse and you’ll see she’s right on medical grounds. As to morality, well I don’t recall the Bible endorsing sodomy. Do you?

Patheos

The Activist Mommy, a Christian homeschooling mother of 10, is butthurt about an anal sex advice article appearing in Teen Vogue.

Elizabeth Johnston, aka The Activist Mommy, released a Facebook video earlier this week condemning Teen Vogue for offering a sex education article on anal sex. In her video, an angry Johnston burns an issue of Teen Vogue while encouraging others to boycott the magazine.
In the video, which has been viewed over 2.9 million times, Johnson asks viewers to join her in her campaign to have the publication removed from “your local gas stations, your local libraries and your local grocery stores.”

Clearly Johnston is angry, but is her anger justified?
In the Teen Vogue article in question, “Anal Sex: What You Need To Know,” sex educator and feminist activist Gigi Engle gives readers the facts about anal sex in a non-judgmental and educational context, answering questions that many may have, but are uncomfortable talking about or asking. The article begins:

When it comes to your body, it’s important that you have the facts. Being in the dark is not doing your sexual health or self-understanding any favors.

With that sentiment in mind, we’re here to lay it all out for you when it comes to anal sex.

In short, the article is a straightforward and honest account of the ins and outs of anal intercourse, and good information for the curious.

However, the article makes Johnston furious. In her video the angry activist mommy declares:

Teen Vogue is garbage. The editors minds are in the garbage. The author’s minds are in the garbage. Don’t let your kids read garbage.
There is a particular irony in Johnston’s outrage, given the urban legend confirmed by anecdotal evidence that many “good Christian women” engage in anal sex to protect their vaginal virginity – aka The Loophole:

Bottomline: The Activist Mommy is a magazine burning, attention seeking clown – another ignorant religious extremist willing to deny sex education advice to others in order to promote her demented, conservative Christian, puritanical agenda.

Wow! I don’t think there’s any possibility of finding common ground with sodomites when this type of attitude is expressed. Sexually explicit information that promotes to children what used to be called a “crime against nature” and was illegal shouldn’t have to be debated. It should be something that everyone agrees on.

Andrew Anglin: Jack Posobiec is a Textbook Ratfucker and He is Hurting the Trump Movement

Prominent Trump supporter and journalist Jack Pesobiac has been called out as a liar by Andrew Anglin at the Daily Stormer.

I’ve published one post that featured Posobiac. That was when he disrupted the Trump assassination play in Central Park with (((Laura Loomer.))) These two alt-light figures did something worthwhile in my opinion when they used the left’s tactics against them.

However, although I’ve used some of Pesobiac’s Tweets in different posts, I’ve been very careful to rarely use him as a news source. That’s because I noticed a few weeks ago that a number of his “scoops” and “exclusives” turned out to be incorrect.

I formed an opinion at several weeks ago that either he was lying by making things up or he was being fed garbage by his “sources.”

Yesterday, Anglin, in a long article, called out Pesobiac as damaging to the Trump movement because Pesobiac falsely claimed that HansAssholeSolo, the source of the Trump body slamming CNN meme, was 15 years old.

I’ve condensed Anglin’s post down to the essence. Read the whole article if you’ve previously been a Pesobiac follower.

Daily Stormer

“Ratfucker” is a term for someone who uses dirty tricks to manipulate politics.

Twitter personality Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) is a ratfucker.

I believe that Posobiec made this up, outright. It is possible that someone from CNN could have leaked this information to him for disinformation purposes, but if that were the case, why is he not now coming out with that information? Surely, CNN leaking disinformation to him would in itself be a story, no?

And was his intention here really to help Team Trump?

We can’t know his personal motives, of course, but there is very little positive that could have come from this, and such a large potential negative in giving CNN the opportunity to distort the entire discussion. And of course, the main beneficiary here was his Twitter feed.

Jack Posobiec’s Twitter Feed: Anatomy of a Ratfucking Hoax Machine
In the time since Trump’s victory, Posobiec has gone from being a clever dirty tricks operator to being a chronic liar and hoaxer, using falsehoods simply to give himself an edge in the new media landscape.

Having observed him more closely than I otherwise would have over the last two weeks, I have found that he is using an absolutely absurd strategy to promote himself on Twitter: basically, he makes up all kinds of things which he believes to be non-falsifiable, while claiming the information comes from insider connections he has.

He is using several measures to decide what to make up.

Plausibility – He makes claims that could come true and thus bolster his credibility and his image as a man with reliable insider sources.

Unfalsifiability – He continually decides which rats to fuck based on an inability for the claims to be proven false, in the case that they do not turn out to be true. This generally involves making a prediction, but framing it as “sources are telling me…”

Sensationalism – The claims must be scandalous in order to get those retweets.

Following the HanAssholeSolo ratfucking attempt by Jack Posobiec, I think it is now absolutely fair to say that this man is a liability who is actively harming the entire spectrum of the Trump movement with his self-serving lies and hoaxes.

I encourage you all to follow Posobiec on Twitter and call him out as a ratfucker whenever he makes these “insider” claims. Maybe he will stop it, maybe he won’t – but if he doesn’t, then he needs to get the reputation of being #RatfuckerJack so that the events of this week are not repeated.

In the future, whenever there is a rumor that can be traced back to #RatfuckerJack, do not take it seriously and do not spread it.

I took a quick look at Jack’s Tweets. So far, there’s no reply to Anglin that I saw.

Barnhardt: 90 Percent of the Vatican is Made Up of Sodomites and Freemasons

Ann Barnhardt makes the case that the Catholic Church has been infiltrated by anti-Catholic clerics.

It should make sense to everyone that a Church filled with those who deliberately revel in sin is no true Church at all.

Excerpt from Ann Barnhardt

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The past two years or so have been EXTREMELY illuminating on this topic. The sodomites are EVERYWHERE in the Vatican, transcending all “right-left”, “liberal-Traditional” and all other categories and spectra. In fact, many of the most diabolical and sacriligious sex perverts inside the Vatican, of which actual, real, practicing Satanists are a subset, hide not only amongst leftist groups such as the Jesuits, but so many are hiding among what are branded as “conservative” groups such as Opus Dei and the Legionaries of Christ, which are actually two of the most powerful and wealthy organized crime syndicates today. There are also, as we have discussed, many sodomites amongst people, both clerics and laity, attached to the Traditional Rites, both the Roman Rite and the Byzantine Rite in Rome. Remember folks, for sodomites, the top priority is the sodomy. For them, sourcing sex partners/victims and the code of silence, or “omertà” which perpetuates the paradigm, trumps everything, including politics, and certainly any liturgical paradigms or preferences. This is why “tribalism” is so spectacularly dangerous.

Which brings us to the sad truth. I have very high-level and unimpeachable sources in Rome who have recently said that among the handful of remaining Catholics in the Curia, including senior-level officials (that category could literally be counted on one hand – do the math), there is now a resignation to the fact that the infiltration of sodomites and Freemasons (that Venn Diagram has a massive overlap) is so severe that it is not humanly possible to remove the infiltration. This can ONLY be solved by supernatural means, which all understand means a Sodom and Gomorrah type event, except on a much, much larger scale. Massive destruction, with many, many people dying on a level never before seen by mankind, just as the Blessed Mother has warned so many times, particularly over the past century.

Think about it. If there are literally just a handful men in the Vatican, which is a massive, bloated, corrupt bureaucracy, that are NOT Freemasons and/or sodomites, that implies that in order to purge the infestation well north of NINETY PERCENT of the people in the Vatican would have to be permanently expelled. And what of the entire college of bishops? FAR North of 90% of them would need to be fired and purged. And what of the priesthood? Same. And what of the staffs in the chanceries all over the world? Same.

FACE IT: NO ONE, AND I MEAN NO ONE, IS COMING TO SAVE THE DAY. NOT CARDINAL BURKE, NOT CARDINAL SARAH, NOT BISHOP SCHNEIDER.

ONLY SUPERNATURAL INTERVENTION WILL BE EFFECTIVE. PERIOD.

Bottom line, start praying for the Blessed Virgin to hold back the arm of her Son no longer. Let the supernatural purge and cleanse come, even if that means that most of us will die in it. This spitting in the face of Christ and the raping of His Holy Church must stop. We’ve heard enough about the rights of men. Let us now return our focus to what we should have been focused on all along: the rights of God – to paraphrase Pope Leo XIII.

In the mean time, we must focus on INDIVIDUAL SOULS. Explain what is happening. Tell people the truth – the blunt, clear, unvarnished truth – no matter how “ugly” it may be. First and foremost we should be explaining to people that Bergoglio is an Antipope, and that Pope Benedict XVI remains the one and only living pope. That true premise is essential to building the rest of the case on a valid logical truth table. The truth of Catholicism falls flat on its face if a man who is not the pope is called the pope, which then necessitates the secondary false premise that the papacy is irrelevant, and that Christ’s promises to Peter, and thus to all of mankind, were either lies, or had an unknowable expiration date. BLASPHEMY!

Lifesite offers 12 facts about the recent gay Vatican orgy.

Ann’s prayer for a supernatural cleansing could and should go far beyond the Vatican. Tel Aviv, Hollywood, and New York City are just a few of the abominations that God might consider destroying.

White Man Reports Being Surrounded by Somali Parasites at Tim Hortons Coffee Shop

“WELCOME TO TIM HORTONS. HOW MAY I HELP YOU?

Contact made with ETs.

Well, the Somali might as well be from another planet since they’re not human. Not in the way that white people understand humans.

A white man has been driven out of a coffee and donut shop after a group of obnoxious Somali came in to hang out.

He’s rejecting the enemy’s propaganda. If they’re not human, how can they be American? And why should working people have to support them?

GLP

I’m at Tim Hortons sitting near a dozen UNEMPLOYED WELFARE PARASITE Somalian Muslim Refugees

Here in the Midwest, there is a chain of donut shops called Tim Hortons. I’m taking a break at one and there are at least 12 Somalian Muslims that arrived and sitting near me, talking very loudly in their native language, dressed in Muslim garb and headgear, but every last one driving a piece of shit car. They all shuffle aimlessly when walking, as if used to having a daily routine of having nothing to do. Only two of these welfare parasites even ordered anything. They’re just talking up tables, yelling, laughing, and UN-FUCKING-EMPLOYED.

THANK YOU Libtards for further burdening us working taxpayers with more useless, anti-American Muslim FILTH.

Now, I need to stop posting so I can go back to work to continue supporting these welfare parasites that YOU fuckers wanted to bring here.

By-the-way, they’re ALL black. What a surprise.

In the few minutes since I posted this and was leaving, FIVE MORE of the fuckers shuffled in! Most are dressed either in Muslim robes or old used Goodwill clothes. They are all living off our welfare system and living in section 8 housing.

What’s the fucking point of bringing them HERE???
They’re just a festering pox on our system and there are NO white people in this Tim Hortons!! These Black Muslim fucks have run off all the MONEY-SPENDING WHITE PEOPLE!!!

Last time I’m stopping here myself.

Businesses that go black, rarely come back. Bye, bye Tim Hortons unless you can figure out a way to control the presence of diversity.

OH YEAH, THEY’RE AMERICA ALRIGHT!

Inspirational Quotes of the Day: John Calvin vs. Adolf Hitler on Islam

I haven’t fact checked these quotes, but they seem plausible. Which, if either, inspires you?

Excerpt from Wikipedia

John Calvin (/ˈkælvɪn/;[1] French: Jean Calvin, pronounced [ʒɑ̃ kalvɛ̃]; born Jehan Cauvin: 10 July 1509 – 27 May 1564) was an influential French theologian, pastor and reformer during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism, aspects of which include the doctrines of predestination and of the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation, in which doctrines Calvin was influenced by and elaborated upon the Augustinian and other Christian traditions. Various Congregational, Reformed, and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as the chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world.

Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer who generated much controversy. He also exchanged cordial and supportive letters with many reformers, including Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger. In addition to his seminal Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, confessional documents, and various other theological treatises.
