The New Willie Horton.
I’m not wondering why. The DOJ knows that TPTB read the NYT, so the DOJ is using the NYT as a subtle sly intermediary to alert prominent politicians and the rest of the media that there will be no indictment of Darren Wilson by anyone, not by St. Louis County, and not by the Feds. The obvious implication is to prepare for lots and lots of black riots.
Hours after the meeting, Nixon’s office said the governor would announce “a new effort to address issues raised by events in Ferguson” on Tuesday. The news release said Nixon would be joined by “elected officials and leaders in business, education, law enforcement and civil rights” at St. Louis Community College’s Florissant Valley campus for the announcement.
Smoothing things over with the undertow in anticipation for the GJ returning no indictment.

Thom Tillis is open borders. Scott Brown is making immigration patriotism his keynote issue.
Everyone was thinking the worst for the housing market in the livable parts of Ferguson, (which is actually most of Ferguson outside the Fergaza Strip and away from the apartment farms), after the handsupdontshoot brigade threw its little hissy fit.
You know what they say, prepare for the worst but hope for the best.
Long term, though, Ferguson’s big millstone is the Ferguson-Florissant School District, the three high schools being 87, 68 and 94 percent black. Though considering the demographics, F-F isn’t that bad.
Take it for what it’s worth, but someone who claims to do real estate in the metro and claims to be in the know e-mailed me and claimed that the truth is that Ferguson real estate is tanking hard, and that the P-D is running propaganda to satisfy its real estate advertisers.
I don’t have the kind of real estate contacts that I used to, but I’ll see what I can do in terms of corroboration.
I guess the handsupdontshoot brigade is running out of ideas and energy.
I now think like HHH that democratic republicanism is defective by design. Unlike HHH, I’m not so sure that classical monarchy is the solution.
However, I couldn’t help but think of this video and HHH’s assertion that democratic republicanism has actually retarded quality economic growth when I read this story this morning. And since I found it on Instapundit, you knew Glenn Reynolds would end with with a short editorial, in this case:
But all that regulation — while making the country much poorer — has vastly enriched the parasite class. They have a bigger slice of a smaller pie, and they like it that way because it makes them feel important.
And this parasitism that has benefited the parasite class at the expense of having a $32 trillion economy instead of a $17 trillion economy is blood on the hands of duhmocrazy.
I also think one of the prime offending elements to explain why the growth of American GDP per capita is far slower than it might be is that, thanks to the 1965 No Borders Act and similar subsequent legislation and the non-enforcement of what little immigration law remains, the denominator of “capitas” is way higher than it should be.
As an aside, HHH in this presentation brought up the concept of hereditarian ownership of a house. He was right in what he said, but he forgot a crucial element: The people that genuinely own their house (even if “ownership” is in the mortgage and equity accruing sense) don’t have just an interest in maintaining their house for their own distant future and for the future of the people that are destined to inherit it and future generations of their own gene line, they have a direct incentive to make sure the entire neighborhood remains quality and livable and pleasant. Extrapolating that to an entire country run by a hypothetical patriotic nationalist hereditarian monarchy, the incumbent king or queen isn’t just invested in good government or good governance at the moment, he or she wants a consummately quality country. Just as the hereditarian homeowner wouldn’t want a black-filled Section 8 apartment complex to be built on an empty parcel over in the next block, the hereditarian governor wouldn’t want the cores of his or her cities to become a conga line of Bell Curve Cities.
