Future son-in-law of Speaker of the House

The Cat in the Hat
Not every political family, it turns out, is succeeding at getting its progeny to marry into billionaire families.

The Most Interesting Newspaper in the World, the Daily Mail, runs this picture of the Florida construction worker and dreadlocked Jamaican immigrant Dominic Lakhan, age 38, who next month will marry the 35-year-old daughter of Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH).

Iron Eyes Boehner
The burnt orange Speaker is of Oompa-Loompan ancestry himself. (Other prominent Loompans include Angelo Mozilo, Donald Trump, and Mitt Romney.)

Mr. Lakhan (a name that sounds vaguely Subcontinental) was arrested in 2006 for driving while drinking a Natural Light and smoking weed.

I was going to do an extensive Internet search to make sure Mr. Lakhan isn't actually the eccentric heir to a Jamaican bauxite fortune, but then I noticed that, like your correspondent, he drinks Natty Light H2O-flavored beerwater.

Here's my 2012 discussion with Charles Murray about the question on his Class Markers Quiz about whether you drink mass market beers like Bud, and what my drinking a sub-mass market beer furtively aimed at the frat boy and wino demographics says about our class status. I think Charles and I left it at classless.

Anyway, that reminded me that I need to make more money, which is why I've started my first panhandling drive of 2013.

I am grateful for your readership and tangible support. I'm running a Spring panhandling drive soliciting your contributions.

Lakhan may have Indian DNA.

Between him and a Chechen son in law though, Boehner should count his blessings.

Many, many moons ago the Daily Mail - and in particular its esteemed 'gossip columnist' the late, great Nigel Dempster (nominated as the 'greatest living Englishman' by Private Eye, back in the day), regularlly wet their panties, at every possible opportunity really, by reminding readers that the heiress to the Pearson fortune (which among other things is responsible for that toxic sheet of ass-wipe, 'The Economist'), married a dreadlocked, multi-concubined, pot-smoking dark rastafarian of Barbadian ancestry, whose father was a London tube train driver.

Maybe he's the great-grandson of Ras Tafari himself, the Emperor Haile Sellaise?

Never understood the Ethiopian thing. Jamaicans are descended from West Africans ,not the graceful and aquiline Ethiopians and Somalis who often look like dark skinned Syrians.Which is just as well- the story of Solomon and Sheba may well be an allegory of the mass migration of Syriac peoples into East Africa which gave supermodel Iman types to gawk at.

As for Boehner, well just another reason for him to cry in public..

In fairness to the crying, George Washington was notorious for weeping like baby, but then he was George Washington so most men give him a pass on that.

I reasoned that the daughter must be really fat and ugly, but she looks ok, a bit chubby perhaps. Women are such idiots.

Yay for arranged marriages.

The Daily Mail also reminds us that Kate Rothschild is divorcing Ben Goldsmith (son of billionaire James) over her affair with American rapper Jay Electronica.

Happily for Ben, he is now dating lingerie model Jemima Jones.

Kate, unfortunately, is not so happy with Mr. Electronica.

"However, last September, the Mail on Sunday reported that she was was 'unimpressed' by his budding friendship with stunning Burberry model Cara Delevingne.

A source said: ‘Kate and Jay are having fearful rows as he’s getting too close to Cara for her liking.’

From Dennis Dale:

The Haille Selassie worship of Rastafarians makes even less sense when you learn Selassie (like many Ethiopians) disdained sub-saharan Africans and considered himself white.

"I am not a Negro at all; I am a Caucasian" the Emperor Menelik told the West Indian pan-Africanist Benito Sylvian who had come to Addis Ababa to solicit the Emperor's leadership in a society for the 'Amelioration of the Negro race.' Haile Sellassie confirmed that view in a declaration to Chief H. O. Davis, a well known Nigerian nationalist, stating that the Ethiopians did not regard themselves as Africans, but as "a mixed Hamito-Semitic people" (2006, John H. Spencer, p. 306)

Steve Sailer said...

Here's newsreel footage of Haile Selassie arriving in Jamaica in 1966, where he was swarmed by worshipful dreadlocked Rastafarians, who scared him back on to his airplane:

Either that or the news is becoming more self-parodying. I mean, when you literally can't tell the NY Times from the Onion without scrolling back up to check the byline....

Someone asked if there were a better writer and source on this stuff today. Not that I know of. Steve has not only the best blog, but the best comments, by far. I wish Derb had commenting at his site, to give him some competition.

maybe you should write a tumultuous novel for women and throw in some subtle un-PC zingers here and there. just use a pseudonym like sassy sailor or something.
perhaps it would take care of vdare's troubles as well.

Excellent news, maybe if this happens to a few more politicians and billionaires they'll have a change of heart about mass immigration.

Bohner should be the patriarch on a PC sit-com like Modern Family, not the Speaker of the House. What a feckless loser that man is.

To be fair, things often go horribly wrong despite the efforts of the parents on behalf of their children. The kids often turn out to be no good; they become hopeless drug addicts who overdose, transsexuals, dumb as a rock lifelong dependents, etc. That's why in parts of the world they practice what's called 'honor killings'. It might be worth a look for him.

I always thought this song was from jamaica after hearing it from shaggy:

In the summertime when the weather is high
you can stretch right out and touch the sky
when the weather's fine you got women
you got women on your mind
have a drink have a drive go out
and see what you can find

If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal
if her daddy's poor just do what you feel
speed along the lane do a ton or a ton an' twenty-five
when the sun goes down you can make it,
make it good or do lay-by

The song "In the Summer Time" is by Mungo Jerry, an English band that got their name from a T.S. Eliot poem.

Great find Steve!!! Old-fashioned newsreel style reportage is awesome, especially when the narrator is a high-toned Brit.

You just have to love lines like "The avalanche of men, women and children swept away all sense of order."

I know, which is why boner-in-law's sharp features are so unusual for a Jamaican. There is a large Ethiopian/Eritrean population in Seattle, and he would fit right in if he lost the dreads and ditched the hat.

The east Africans that I've known seemed fairly bright and disciplined. One could say that it's all due to selection effects, but they were much sharper than the educated west Africans and even Saudi's that I've met stateside.

I don't know if it's still the case, or even ever was, but back in the day I used to hear rumors that many of the shot callers in the Seattle Cocaine trade were East African. Eritreans had an especially fearsome reputation, but Seattle isn't exactly southie in terms of native toughness.

Ahhhhhhhh! Natty Boh!

"From the Land of Pleasant Living,"

The summer after I graduated from college, my friend Carl and I bought two cases of National Bohemian tall-boys for -- IIRC -- $6.99 each. I'd never drank it before -- all I knew was it was the cheapest beer in the store.

Every weekend, we'd toss a 6-pack into the deep end of Carl's parents' pool. Then we'd lounge poolside all day, bragging about all the money and sports cars and hot girls we'd have -- as soon as we found jobs. When we got thirsty, we'd dive down and grab another cold Natty Boh from the pool's bottom. That was the last time in my life I was consistently happy.

For another decade or two, whenever I was feeling low, all I needed was a sip of Natty Boh and my mood would instantly improve.

Alas, I have unlearned that psychological response by now. Today, it's just another cheap beer. But for a while, it was like a combination of Proust's madeleine mixed with Prozac in an aluminum can.

So is this an example of the racial solidarity that liberals and moderates believe in?

Steve was telling us liberals were angry at conservatives for not exhibiting racial solidarity by supporting gun control .... cuz liberals and moderates are allllll about White racial solidarity.

Boehner probably never told his daughter to stay away from blacks.

This marriage is a good symbol for mainstream conservatism. Keep playing along with political correctness and this is how things will end up. Way to go Boehner.

The little Boehner is making war on Daddy Boehner's DNA.

Whether the war stems from Mommy's transmitted resentments or Little Girl's own resentments, make no mistake: the name of the game is erasing Daddy's gene line.

Seen it happen many times before in families where Dad takes-up with other women, booze, what have you , only to find his children going full-dysgenic at the most hurtful opportunities.

I am sure that I am not the only one to notice that while Jews like to dismiss the reality of race, it is very rare for one of their daughters to marry someone like Mr. Lakhan.

I think she ended up with a Jewish guy precisely because she is unattractive. If Chelsea was prettier she would probably be married to some famous white gentile celebrity.

Has one of Boehner's closest relatives or friends given him a heart-to-heart? I cannot even imagine this happening to somebody I know without some close friend or family member taking him aside and asking "WTF are you thinking?"

If I were Boehner, after all he is right behind the VP in line of succession, I'd use my position to have this bum deported.

Does he even realize how much of a total failure this reflects upon him as a parent? If he is this tone deaf to the demise of his daughter, maybe that explains his blindness to our demographic dilemma.

The funny thing is elite leftists who push demographic change appear to say one thing and do another. They marry and live in the whitest, most exclusive areas. The Boehners apparently never got the fail-safe code and are going to get swept away in the demographic storm that lies ahead.

"Whiskey, what's your explanation for these marital choices? Seriously, I'm hoping to read your explanation of why these women marry down."

Well, I'm not Whiskey, but I've seen a couple of similar "extreme-ends" things up fairly close and I have an observation that's more than a theory with respect to the ones I've seen.

Some women just love having all the power in a relationship. She gets to live her life the way she wants. Why should he complain? She blathers on, he occasionally says "well, wherever you all there you'll be"...

Anonymous said...

Some people seem to have a problem with this, but I don't see why it should be. There is nothing wrong with it. And no, I don't think she is marrying "down", its Boehner's daughter we are talking about.

Whiskey said...

Dave, my explanation is that next to aggressive, darker-skinned (Steve's noted darker guys and fairer women are more attractive the world over) guys with higher testosterone and lower IQs, the White guys in their surroundings never have a chance.

The Goldstone guy never had a chance to keep his wife, who was an ordinary looker, once she got a hold of rapper Electronica. Goldstone's money got him another younger girl, but she'll leave as soon as a more Alpha guy shows up. And there's always a guy with more dominance, testosterone, and whatnot. Even Putin has to fear some guy who figures, "you know what, I'd really like to run Russia."

Same for the Pearson chick, same for the Boehner woman.

If Globalization and Diversity and H1-Bs and mass Mexican Immigration (nearly all illegal) makes White American workers uncompetitive, being priced out at the high and low end save "protected" upper class hangouts such as the media (you will never see the upper class bringing in H1-Bs for media because that is the "respectable" career for cadet branch aristos the way the clergy used to be for the English aristos) -- well the same goes true for guys on the sexual marketplace.

A rapper or "aspiring rapper" has the "creative" mode locked up while being Black makes it an easy sale: lower IQ (attractive in a man, not so in a woman), higher testosterone, better "equipment" and so on. Easy sale compared to the nerdy White boy model on offer.

This is why mass immigration is so hard to stop. White women benefit (more manly men, and ugly women who are no competition). If Mexico was sending in millions of clones of say, Selena Gomez, you'd see White women barricading the White House. Instead they send the maids and housekeepers of the Gentry and Elites.

When women don't need to depend on a provider for security and money, because they have their own, or can get a hefty divorce settlement, or the state provides it, White guys lose and more thuggish lower-IQ guys from places like Africa or Chechnya win.

Heartiste noted WN's are the biggest White Knight losers around, uncomprehending the nature of women. Which is flexible but bends to the nature of violence and low IQ in a man.

Whiskey said...

Cont'd. After all, millions of White women around the globe did not orgasm themselves to tales of high IQ beta males providing food and shelter, or providing comfort and support, or even inventing anything game changing. Nope. They didn't.

They whipped themselves into frenzies over a bad boy who wanted to kill the heroine, but refrained from doing so, and intimidated and frightened and killed other men. Or some billionaire who had some factories and land and made people afraid and engaged in pointless bondage with some college girl.

Women don't lust and drool and fantasize over smart guys. They never have. Never will. Because that aspect of masculinity, abstract thinking, spatial analysis, tinkering, intense focus, memorizing facts, is just repulsive to them. That violence, domination, aggression, and so on are not. And those qualities are found most often in lower IQ men who don't have the forethought to plan ahead. And figuring that dying with your brother driving over you is definitely a negative, compared to being alive.

The beautiful, college sophomore from a doctor's family who dropped out of college to convert to Islam, don the Hijab, and marry and bear the hell-spawn of Tamerlan Tsarnaev doubtless had many other men to choose from. Ones with better earning potential, ones who would never have beat her. Ones who would still be alive. But she chose Tamerlan. Its easy to see why. He dominated her, was scary, a thug, and that wins.

While thuggishness is no doubt best for winning women; being "edgy" with a hint of danger is certainly enough to get say the wife of a Goldstone. Or a Pearson.

There were almost exactly none a mere twenty five years ago. Just as the Puget Sound had almost no Indians (dot not feather) at that time either. Believe it or not, it used to be almost entirely white, save for relatively small black ghettos in Seattle and Tacoma. But, of course, that could not be permitted to continue.
