It's an anti-semitic myth to say Jews have a disproportionate influence over MSM.

[HS: Jews have a disproportionate influence in nearly all high-IQ occupations because Jews, on average, have genetically higher IQs than gentiles. But Jew-haters wrongly believe that Jews somehow CONTROL the media as part of a vast conspiracy to serve secret Jewish purposes involving global domination and the Federal Reserve Bank.]

Sounds like a good idea to me.

If that were to happen, what is your prediction on the Jewish vote compared to the normal 80:20 split?

good argument--he's a class act

Cantor would get torn up. The media hates a traitor. No black, Hispanic, woman, or Jew can be a Republican without getting a lot of heat. They can't do much to Cantor now because he is relatively low profile and represents a conservative district, but if he ran for VP they would unload on him.

[HS: Cantor is a traitor to whom? He never belonged to the liberal establishment, and as far as I know he has always been a patriotic American and an observant Jew who has supported Israel.

As far as I know, the MSM likes Cantor because they invite him to appear on a lot of talk shows.]

A Mormon and a Jew, huh? :)

This would give Romney---by far the best Republican candidate---a pretty good shot at winning.

HS,

Why do you vote or care about politics. You've previously stated that you don't much care about society and only how an individual can get ahead. In what way does it further your aims? Is it just a hobby? Does the increased traffic lead to appreciable blog income?

[HS: There is zero advertising income from this blog since Google banned my URL from ads. There is a donate button, but rarely does anyone donate. The last donation was $10 on August 10th, and that doesn't even cover what I pay to TypePad for hosting. This blog is a liability and not a source of extra income.

And no, this is NOT a request for donations. I have mixed feelings about having a Donate button.]

Now we know to whom Obama was referring:

"Here is what the president actually said, catching himself almost in time but not quite:'If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, uh, as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that.'"

Obama, the anti-Semite, again muffs reading a teleprompter, which reveals his true, inner self. Explain to me again how smart Commandante Zero is.

RomneyCare vs. ObamaCare. Wake me when we get at least one non-Socialist parties.

Cantor has the look of a campus liberal, kind of a less comical version of Dukakis, or what I imagine the guy who runs DailyKos looks like. As such, he will subliminally convert masses of erstwhile Dem. voters to the Republican side. They will imagine him as a manchurian worm eating away at the right-wing gut. As soon as he's in the race, the Dems will have to dump Obama, and come up with a similarly cerebral-looking candiate. Al Franken is our next president.

"Jews have a disproportionate influence in nearly all high-IQ occupations"

And they are especially disproportionate in high VERBAL IQ occupations in particular, especially media because Jews are smart enough to know that's where the real power is.

"But Jew-haters wrongly believe that Jews somehow CONTROL the media as part of a vast conspiracy to serve secret Jewish purposes involving global domination and the Federal Reserve Bank."

There's no conspiracy but all racial and ethnic groups are genetically motivated to help their own people as a way of replicating their own genes (see Rushton's genetic similarity theory). Jews have the highest IQ's so they can figure out away to do this far more efficiently by acquiring disproportionate wealth and power and skillfully using that to advance Jewish interests. There's no grand conspiracy; each Jew is independently motivated and able to figure out what to do without conspiring with other Jews, but the collective effect of so many rich, powerful intelligent Jews all serving Jewish interests is a force to be reckoned with.

Every ethnicity actively works to serve its own interests, but Jews are so much better at it than everyone else that they inspire occasional resentment, especially when Jewish interests conflict with American interests as they do in U.S. foreign policy and some would argue immigration policy.

Jews have so much power in the media that even non-Jews in media serve Jewish interests because so much of the media is Jewish owned or Jewish run that non-Jews will often placate Jews to increase the odds of keeping their job, improving their television time slot, or being hired by a better network/newspaper.

Jews make up less than 3% of the population therefore there is little electoral benefit in choosing a Jewish running mate. It would make a lot more sense for Romney - a Mormon - to choose a mainstream Protestant or Catholic running mate such as Paul Ryan.

Cantor lacks gravitas, enabling the administration to gaslight him as being "immature" during the debt ceiling debates. He also has a Southern accent, which probably wouldn't help in pealing off big city liberal Jews.

In any case, Jewishness is probably more of a liability than an asset. It would be a turnoff to paleos who think the country is too biased toward Israel already, and it wouldn't even attract many Jewish voters (who voted against the Jewish candidate in NY-9 earlier this month).

When most people talk about problems in the economy they are talking about jobs. I'd guess that Jewish unemployment is really, really low, so unemployment is probably not that important to Jews. I doubt Obama's ruinous interventions really matter all that much to Jewish voting.

And remember, Obama is trying to grow the scope of government dominated sectors like education, healthcare, and law which all seem like sectors that employ a disproportionate Jewish percentage.

"In any case, Jewishness is probably more of a liability than an asset. It would be a turnoff to paleos who think the country is too biased toward Israel already, "

Yes, that's quite a huge and powerful voting bloc.

"In any case, Jewishness is probably more of a liability than an asset. It would be a turnoff to paleos who think the country is too biased toward Israel already, and it wouldn't even attract many Jewish voters (who voted against the Jewish candidate in NY-9 earlier this month)."

I don't think Jews even want a Jew on a presidential ticket. Jews have brilliantly achieved so much power they have no problem getting non-Jewish leaders to act in Israel's interest and it's better for Jews to have non-Jews carrying their water because then Jews don't get blamed.

Hopefully, he is a Jew With a Clue...

Regarding Jewish donations, there is an anti-semtic lie that Jews are 40-50% of Democrat donations (and this statistic has been stupidly repeated by math illiterate journalits who didn;t bother to check where this number came from) but the source for this funding information has never been located.

This number was debunked by the dormant blog Guy White where it was shown it is mathematically impossible that Jews could be such a high percentage of Democrat donors.

10% is more plausible, but 40% or more appears to be another anti-semitic lie.

"Finally, Jews have a disproportionate influence over the MSM, so if Republicans can win over the majority of Jews to their side, the result will be more favorable media coverage for Republicans."

The media is only 20-25% Jewish if one counts journalists who are partially Jewish as fully Jewish, which is a common tactic used by anti-semites to exaggerate Jewish influence, which is still disproportionate for being 5% of American whites.

Regardless of the Jewish percentage, there wouldn't be any improved media coverage for Republicans were the GOP to win a majority of the Jewish vote because white gentiles currently vote majority GOP and yet white gentile journalists are overwhelmingly Democrat hacks.

The Jews won't join conservatism until elite gentiles become conservative because the Jews are simply imitating the elite gentiles rather than working against them.

The overrepresntation of Jews in the MSM (or political movements in general) makes little difference in American society because the non-ethnocentric assimilated Jews are promoting liberalism because they are copying the gentile white elite.

Replacing Jewish liberals in the MSM will just lead to their jobs being taken over by gentile SWPL liberals who will promote the exact same ideas Jews are.

In other words, the Daily Show isn't going to become conservative if Jon Stewart is replaced by gentile Tina Fey.

"It would be a turnoff to paleos"

There are almost no paleoconservatives outside of a tiny, and completely irrelevant section of the blogosphere.

Their candidate, Ron Paul, is going nowhere in the Republican primary and is widely hated by Republican primary voters because he doesn't support Israel and loves to make excuses for Muslim terrorism.

"But Jew-haters wrongly believe that Jews somehow CONTROL the media"

The Jews are COPYING elite gentiles and they won't be conservative until ELITE GENTILES become conservative.

When the Republicans were the elite party from 1865-1932, the elite Jews, the German American Jews, were Republicans. After FDR moved the country to the left, the Jews assimilated into American Democrat leftist establishment mores.

Yet, the antisemites expect Jewish elites to be conservative when GENTILE ELITES are also liberal and directing Jewish political behavior.

LOL. Cantor does actually look like a Scandinavian liberal. I've had professors who've looked just like him. He doesn't look like a Jew or a conservative. In fact, to be totally superficial, I don't like that look. It reminds me of some sort of anal-retentiveness without a sense of humor or imagination.

"There are almost no paleoconservatives outside of a tiny, and completely irrelevant section of the blogosphere."

How do you know? Have you conducted a census of them? Paleos comprised a big wing of the GOP until the rise of the neocons. Do you think they and their children all disappeared?

Just because their views aren't represented in the mainstream media (except for maybe Pat Buchanan) doesn't mean they don't exist.

Cantor is fine on another ticket but is too button up for Romney.

Together they would be a vortex of GQ.

Romney needs someone like Perry or Joe Manchin to balance out his whiff of Northern gentility.
Manchin would be perfect since he is Southern and working class. And he is obviously the type of Democrat that Nancy Pelosi is driving from the party.

They would play the Zell Miller card that was so successful against Kerry.

Is that (5-3)% of semi-Jewish Americans going to give a damn that Eric Cantor is the VP nominee? I don't think Sarah Palin did much for McCain among women, and Cantor won't do it for Romney. Things will be much as they were in 2008, but with reduced minority turnout since there isn't the same big hopey-changey push.

[HS: Women prefer to vote for alpha males and dislike voting for women. When are people going to figure that out???]

There might have been some positive MSM-Cantor relations at one time, but that disappeared after the Republicans won the House last year. Now Cantor has some power and is an enemy to the MSM. His treatment in the media the last few months has been pretty crappy.

The Spearhead and In Mala Fide have donation drives to maintain operations. The Spearhead's readership consists of divorced pot bellied comb over dads. In Mala Fide's readership consists of 20 something nihilists. If your readership is as high brow as they seem then they should have no problem financing your blog. Your high quality content is well worth it.

I wonder if Paleos know that one of their heroes is part Jewish. Namely a former presidential candidate with a glaringly Jewish name which, ironically, no one seems to notice.

I'm a fan of Cantor and would find it gratifying to see him be VP. But, unfortunately, I tend to agree that it wouldn't cause the vast majority of the Jewish vote to budge from the Democrat column. There is too much of a connection to the Democratic party and liberalism among much of the Jewish community.

How about Kay Bailey Hutchison for VP? Like the Texan Perry without the arrogance, and like Palin with a brain.

[HS: When will people learn that conservative women do poorly in general elections? Eric Cantor would attract a lot more votes from the "undecided" people who actually decide elections.]
