THE MORNING RANT – Can Blue State Refugees Save Red States from the Woke Assault; plus, Transgenderism’s Lucrative Cash Flow Model

Leaving California.JPG

For this morning’s Rant, I’d like to discuss a couple recent essays from writers I am finding to be indispensable reading, along with a few of my comments on their essays.

*****

Ace linked to a piece at HotAir few days ago (“Demand For Trans Treatments Overwhelming Minnesota Clinics”) about the booming business for child gender transition in Minnesota since it declared itself a “trans refuge” state.

I won’t bother discussing what these diabolical “treatments” entail. We all know by now. But with more and more states banning them, business is booming in Minnesota, where there is a growing number of doctors who are new to this lucrative surgical fad. In many cases, they are doing very poor work, causing serious medical problems above and beyond the normal problems from these procedures.

Interestingly, Jeffrey Carter of “Points and Figures” just wrote an outstanding essay (“Why the Emphasis on Transgender?”) pointing out why transgenderism has supplanted abortion as the core issue of Democrats and their media army of agenda-pushers.

Both of these stories tie together. As always, follow the money.

Mr. Carter is a business and finance guy with an analytical mind, and he points out, “There are ways to look at this without making value judgments about abortion and transgenderism.” While it can be hard to put aside our emotions about these subjects, this does help clarify why the transgender social contagion is so financially beneficial to those who are promoting it.

An abortion is a one-time revenue event, whereas a sex-change generates a lifetime subscription service of medical treatments that cannot be suspended or canceled. Further, the potential market of those who might be a revenue-producing abortion customer at any given time is a very small percentage of the population.

Once a customer is acquired, there is only one transaction. One and done. An abortion is performed and the customer walks away.

This produces on average $700 of revenue to the abortion provider.

This is not the case with transgenderism cash flows. It is not a one-and-done business model. There is an entire stream of payments that come with a one-time customer acquisition.

The upfront, one-time revenue for the surgery and counseling all by itself is much greater than that of an abortion’s one-time revenue, but the lifetime medical costs for a sex-change are especially lucrative.

The real money is in the drug cocktail Transgenders take for the rest of their lives. They will spend $40 to $400 per month on hormone drugs. The average cost is $2,880 per year. If a person transgenders at age 18, the age of consent, and lives to the full life expectancy of 77, that’s 59 years of consistent payments or 708 months.

Carter calculates the lifetime discounted cash flow from the drug regimen alone to be over $70,000 per transgender patient. That is a pretty compelling reason for those who get a cut of that recurring cash flow to want to expand the number of patients needing a lifetime of treatment.

*****

Mark Pulliam’s writing always strikes a chord with me, because he is also a conservative refugee from Austin who fled to the deep-red sanctuary of East Tennessee. And like me, he is troubled by how RINO-infested the GOP political establishment is here, and he’s also concerned that the local citizenry is unaware of the threat to its traditional conservative culture.

Pulliam wrote a recent review at The American Conservative (“American Refugees: Will the influx of blue state refugees into the heartland ruin the country or save it?”) of Roger Simon’s book “American Refugees: The Untold Story of the Mass Exodus from Blue States to Red States.” I found myself nodding in agreement throughout the entire piece.

Based on his interactions with blue state refugees, Simon finds that, in many cases, the transplants are more conservative and certainly more engaged than the natives, who tolerate establishment-oriented politicians in their states. Simon pulls no punches in his evisceration of the “Republican-in-name-only” political culture in many red states—Tennessee included. Complacent natives, not yet having experienced the disorienting regime change of wokeness, are surprisingly content with the RINO status quo.

Pulliam finds himself in agreement with Simon on the core issue of whether blue state refugees are making their destination states redder or bluer. My observation is the same as theirs - the refugees are making their new states redder.

My Tennessee neighborhood is filling up with refugees from Illinois and other blue states. Some casual conversations have made it clear that they lean conservative, but even more noticeable are the flags and patriotica they display proudly. As Jesse Kelly famously observed while walking neighborhoods during a political campaign, if a house has a flag flying outside, the owner is almost certainly a Republican.

Newly arrived transplants, acutely aware of the peril posed by leftist policies, often find themselves acting like Paul Revere, warning the cliquish locals of the dangers of passivity and complacency.

There is no better anti-communist than those who have lived under communism. Much like the Eastern Europeans in Hungary, Poland, and Czechia who are appalled at Western Europe’s ongoing suicide in pursuit of 21-century communism, those of us who lost our beloved home towns or home states to the radical left are passionate about preserving traditional America where it still flourishes.

While my escape to Tennessee may have been from the red state of Texas, Austin itself had long since become an exclave of California by the time my wife and I left.

For example, so many Californians relocated to Austin, Texas, in order to work in Big Tech that they turned the Capital City into a demographic replica of Silicon Valley. Austin has effectively become a province of California and votes accordingly. However, this has not been the case in Florida under Gov. Ron DeSantis. Tennessee has little in common with Austin.

Those who are relocated from blue states to red states for high tech jobs are often colonizers. Those who flee of their own volition are refugees who will make the red state they relocate to even redder.

I strongly agree with Pulliam’s final line, which stresses a point I have been pounding on recently – we can achieve real victories in the culture wars at the state and local levels, which is where our most important votes are cast.

Red states should embrace freedom-loving blue state refugees, whether they are “real rednecks” or not. In these tumultuous times, patriots must unite. If America is to be saved, the battle will be fought at the local level, and it is here that the blue state refugees and red state natives must learn to work together as allies.

*****

Cynical Publius responded to Pulliam’s piece with an example involving himself as a refugee to a still-red state, and how his efforts to warn the local GOP establishment of the woke assault that is coming was like trying to warn a dinosaur of the incoming meteor.


Cynical Publius Pulliam.JPG


I can confirm. In 2016 I successfully escaped from California to a deep red Mountain West state. In 2020, after the election, I made an appointment with my GOP state senator to discuss my concerns about voting integrity. She was a late-30s attorney who had lived in the state her whole life and had both her BA and JD from the state university. We ended up talking for over an hour on a wide range of political and social topics beyond just voting. I felt like I was trying to warn a brontosaurus about the incoming meteor. She was still convinced we lived in a Scoop Jackson era of political comity, and was convinced I was greatly exaggerating the threat of woke ideology. In fact, I think she saw ME as a bigger threat because I was trying to change "the generosity of spirit" that defined our very neighborly and kind state. She simply refused to believe that in California and elsewhere there were literally tens of millions of Democrats who actively and aggressively sought to have our state's way of life wholly exterminated. It was a shocking and demoralizing experience.

Further, a woman who has an abortion can - theoretically - go on to produce children. A person who has trans surgery cannot.

I know I harp on this a lot but the goal is to remove ~90% of the human population. They're not going to do that all at once and they're not going to use only one mechanism. They'll use war, famine, pestilence (real or man-made), crime, insanity... Death by a thousand cuts. Satan laughing spreads his wings.

14 The NYTimes had an article this weekend about blue state refugees to red states making those red states redder, with South Carolina as the example. Hilariously, as they wandered the Upstate (Greenville and vicinity), seemingly all the newly relocated people they talked to were Nikki Haley supporters.

Right off the bat there's an implicit assumption in the middle of that. It is that "value judgments" are inherently emotional. That is contrary to the entire trend of thinking - Western as well as elsewhere - outside a few outliers who are, unfortunately, popular today.

18 The analogy to this is that there was a big population flow from California to Utah during the '90s, as the California economy stagnated, and the Utah economy boomed.

A number of thumb-sucking journalism pieces were written about how the California migrants were going to make Utah more liberal.

It turned out that the migrants were mostly Mormon - why not move back to Zion, given the economic incentives to do so.

20 In my red area there’s a weird thing happening much like what that tweet said. The California refugees are generally speaking very conservative. And for the first time in a long time, maybe ever for some younger ones, they are not a small minority afraid to speak. And they are letting the MAGA freak flag fly.

But this is not going down well for the old school locals. They still believe in the “neighborly” way and think the new residents are too extreme and shit. These people are generally older and still buy the local (leftist) newspaper and think Democrats are good people who just have some bad ideas. They have no idea what’s happening on the left.

And the result is a lot of RINOs are now running and getting elected at the local level.

So weirdly, the influx of conservatives is making the average elected politician more liberal.

22 To be fair, Austin has ALWAYS been left-leaning. My friends and I were calling it Moscow-on-the-Colorado…30 years ago, in 1994. BUT yes, the influx of Statist/Socialists from CA have made it much worse.

I have no love and lest trust of RINOs. My State Senator RINO retired in 2022 and made way for someone who is much better IMHO. My State Rep’s mission is to make sure schools get endless money with zero accountability. He is an absolute RINO who touts his “conservative credentials” every election. Fortunately he has competition this primary and I will definitely be voting for his opponent.

As a side note, famous Austin resident Elon Musk may have been a refugee when he arrived, but he is bringing along plenty of colonizers.

24 Related: yesterday's service at our non-woke church had a surprise - a transkid acolyte. Looked like a boy, listed as Mary in the program (no idea whose family she is part of). Another family who had been overseas has returned to our church within the past year with their formerly female child now presented as male. Also noticed that families whose kids who were friends with this transkid before the overseas move have not been in church lately, are no longer acolytes. So. We'll see how fast other changes transpire to accommodate our apparently growing transkid church community.

28 An abortion is a one-time revenue event, whereas a sex-change generates a lifetime subscription service of medical treatments that cannot be suspended or canceled.

The solution to that is to let "transgenders" sue for being mutilated.

Transgender operations and drug regimens largely disappeared from Florida, after the laws were changed making it easier to sue.

I seem to recall Tucker covering how big tech expanded into Utah, such as Google setting up big server facilities. With that came big donations to Utah politicians, such as Mike Lee, who became a lot less conservative on issues that affect big tech. Got their foot in the door politically and can push their agenda through existing state leadership.

You really have to look at how they took over Colorado as their blueprint. They intentionally created the blueprint, as documented here: http://tinyurl.com/3m5asfyt

The sad thing is that it doesn't take a lot of CA colonizers, it just takes a few ridiculously wealthy ones like Jared Polis and Tim Gill to flip your state. No amount of conservative CA refugees will stop it.

++++
Yeah, but that's a *really* bad bet, for a number of reasons:
1. Life expectancy at birth is falling
2. These kinds of medical interventions are extremely unlikely to result in achieving the median life expectancy anyway. The median for the "trans" subgroup is probably markedly lower than the total population, which will be lower then the "non-trans" meta-group.
3. If you take into account unnatural causes - primarily suicide, but also drug overdose or lovers' quarrels (the latter two are much higher among deviant groups, and the first is very high among the "trans" group in particular), the median life expectancy is going to crater radically.

This is not a 60-year revenue engine, it's probably closer to 20 on average if I had to guess. By then, the people involved will either be dead or will have reversed course as they stagger through a more average lifespan as cripples.

Still fantastic sums of money, but nothing like as fantastic as projected when reality intervenes.

Even younger straight people identify as queer thanks to 1) it becoming a political statement, 2) the concept of "Safe Horny" (basically the idea that sex is only good when it's kinky and disposable and filthy and cheap; in other words : when it's gay)

But the primary pushers of this ideology are demonic possessed individuals who want to wreak as much destruction and havoc as possible…. They hate humanity. The $$ angle is too simplistic


Truly believe this is another "embrace the power of 'and'" situation.

The people at the root of the trans movement are radicals who want to bust up western civilization, but they've created a fabulous financial incentive along with an emotional one to get others to do their work. Who doesn't want to help kids in need? It's like how they use "Love" to sell the gay agenda. These are two parts of the same movement to destroy normal, heterosexual norms.

71 Very good article on "following the money" on tranny atrocities. I've been saying this from the beginning. I do think, however, that the article substantially underestimates the cost -- and therefore the profit motive -- of Big Tranny and it's butchery.

The surgery costs seem probably half as much as they probably are, although it's possible the article only included the "surgeon's" fees and not all the other fees (hospital or "bed" fees, anesthesia, testing, etc).

The pharma costs also seem too low.

But regardless, I agree there are billions to be made in this industry. Now that Covid has exposed the total corruption and degradation of the medical and pharma industry -- if not it's total devotion to profit at any and all costs -- it's all too clear why so many people are pushing this butchery on young, confused people.

72 Pulliam finds himself in agreement with Simon on the core issue of whether blue state refugees are making their destination states redder or bluer. My observation is the same as theirs - the refugees are making their new states redder.
++++
The refugees are. If you're conservative - even squishy conservative - there is nothing like watching the real-time destruction of a once-sane place to move you firmly into the position.

But those are the refugees. The other side of the coin are the colonists. The colonists moved for other reasons - cost of living or traffic, for example, or because their jobs relocated them - and don't see any causes or comparisons between the collapse of where they *were* and sanity of where they *are.*

I don't think the question is "do refugees move the needle toward progressivism or conservatism" but is rather, "what is the mix of refugees and colonists in the population inflow?"

I don't know how to answer that question, and it keeps me up at night because I am refugee who fled a shit hole. Are these other people coming in like me, or are they like the ones who turned my old home into a shit hole?

The Millennials are are fairly monolithic in that they are uniformly progs. Non-prog Millennials are very decidedly in the minority.

Gen-Z is more bifurcated, but this should *not* be confused for "conservatism" in the way that it is generally understood. The non-prog Zoomers are exactly that. They're anticommunists/antiprogressives, but they are definitely not "conservative" in a way that is recognizable to most people familiar with that dynamic. They are just as radical as their prog brethren, just in a different direction because they recognize that their prog brethren are the inheritors of the current system, because the the current system is entirely progressive.

If the anti-prog Zoomers were to win the day, don't expect some constitutional conservative resurgence. Expect a monarchy or similar.

Norton is a sick, sick fuck who is seriously mentally ill. You think his current routine is crass, disgusting, and vulgar? You should have heard his earlier shit. Vomitous. He was kicking around comedy clubs in NYC a while back. I was sorta dating this girl who was into comedy clubs. So I went with her a few times. I had no idea who he was, but his routine was truly vile.

And in those clubs, it wasn't uncommon for the comedians to hang out with the audience at the bar after the show. I tried to avoid him, but sure enough he found us at the bar. He was obviously high as fuck on serious drugs, and mentally ill.

Imagine my surprise when I saw years later that he'd become a big name in comedy.

131 The UK is increasing the age-rating for the Disney classic "Mary Poppins" and you'll never guess why
. . . .
In it, a derogatory term originally used by white Europeans about nomadic peoples in southern Africa is used to refer to soot-faced chimney-sweeps.
That now 'exceeds our guidelines f'or U films, the BBFC said ...
In the film, Admiral Boom, a neighbour and Naval veteran who thinks he is still in charge of a ship, uses the word twice.

'Mary Poppins (1964) includes two uses of the discriminatory term "hottentots."'

142 Buck,

I suspect that the driving motivation for most Adolescent Gender physicians is not primarily financial. Rather there is a deeper and darker motive of self-justification going on. Take Dr. Richard Levine as an example. He lived most of his adult life as a man, married with two children. In his fifties, while working as an Adolescent Medicine physician he decided to outwardly project himself as a woman, calling himself Rachel and growing his hair long while donning a matronly dress and a string of faux pearls.

How does he justify this delusion? By promoting and even grooming transgender delusions in his patients. He isn't getting rich from the ongoing follow-up of those patients. He is validating his own grotesque existence. He is manufacturing a self-identity as a hero, and it has served him well.

Also noticed that families whose kids who were friends with this transkid before the overseas move have not been in church lately, are no longer acolytes. So.

The "generation" concept is now out of gas. It was always an aberration and it's over. An "age cohort" exists and always has, but the idea of semi-monolithic "generations" was a temporary consequence of the War and has reached its end. The Millennials are barely a "generation" in the Postwar sense, and the Zoomers probably aren't one.

The only reason this happened in the first place the massive die-off and general pause on reproduction throughout the developed world because of the War, and is a function of its aftermath. It's historically extremely weird to have a period of essentially no births followed by a massive explosion in births for a fairly discrete period. It caused a demographic "reset" and created a "generation." That generation then had kids of their own, but variance started to happen as it always must. The natural state is a hodgepodge (within reason), not bright lines.

188 Mark Pulliam’s writing always strikes a chord with me, because he is also a conservative refugee from Austin who fled to the deep-red sanctuary of East Tennessee. And like me, he is troubled by how RINO-infested the GOP political establishment is here, and he’s also concerned that the local citizenry is unaware of the threat to its traditional conservative culture.

-------------------

My opinion is the social conservatives of the "three legged stool" were taken for a ride for 40 years. Without a doubt the other two legs (financial, foreign policy) didn't give a shit about social conservatism. Social conservatives should've jumped ship in 1990 or earlier after Reagan failed to close down the Department of Education and SCOTUS had their shit ruling on abortion.

At that point it was obvious the Repubs had no intention of enacting policies the social conservatives wanted, except for the occasional bone they were thrown.

Tennessee has two giant blue cities: Memphis and Nashville. The other major cities are more left than their surroundings, of course, but are not as hard core as the megaplexes.

But Nashville is by far the more dangerous of the two. Memphis is a blue shithole of the old-school variety run by race-pimping gangsters. Nashville is the new kind, run by the prog elite. Far, far worse.

213 Worth noting is...Florida in Particular is flipping BACK to Red.
Non-native, part-time, retired, and/or wealthy Blue staters had managed to take over the politics there, NY, NJ, Pa etc. Many also voted from BOTH. Several elected Fla politicos were either former Blue state elected officials, or the spawn of them. The campaigns and activists in Fla were uniformly headquartered in Blue states and DC, well trained and practiced in harvesting the votes from the Condo-canyons full of yankee seniors. Bush v Gore discovered hundreds of thousand registered to vote in two states, and around 60,000 that had voted in both. Rather than publicly prosecute a bunch of oldsters, Repubs let the Dems off the hook in exchange for more rigorous Voter ID, voter roll cleanups, tightened "Residency Period requirements for tax benifits" and some additional fundraising/campaign funds reporting...Florida flipped red, and has been getting redder ever since.
Dems still use the Absentee Ballot/vote by mail/ballot harvesting/GOTV practices they first spawned and used in Florida in greater and greater operations in many other states though...often against nearly non-existent push back from the red state politicos

214 "Based on his interactions with blue state refugees, Simon finds that, in many cases, the transplants are more conservative and certainly more engaged than the natives..."

I can confirm this at least anecdotally. Becoming involved in my adopted red state county's fight against rapacious over-development, I noticed all the activism was coming from the older and conservative emigres. Very few natives showed up for the meetings. A few did early on, seemed completely unaware of the problem, and did not come back.

Not even that. The fascists were the result of a schism among the communists in the wake of the Great War. The fascists were the pragmatists who realized that "G-d and Country" were much, much more powerful considerations than "class." That's all. That's the distinction.

Like in any schism, both sides hated each other. The pre-fascist socialists - the Marxists, essentially - defined the terms because the fascists were defeated by the third group (the non-socialists, that is, the United States) and the first group (the Marxists, through Soviet blood and American treasure).

260 as far as "Generational" stuff goes...this year is the PEAK of the Boomers, largest number of people turning 65 ever, and that number begins to decline next year, and since they, and their children declined to have more children, not even a replacement number of children...demographic as well as economic seismic change will follow. All of the "seniors" that have been paying into SS/Medicare will now be receiving it...and the numbers now paying in are plummeting. When the sole child of 2, 4, or more Parents/step parents, single mothers realizes his/her paycheck is going to have to cover the support of many more people than just him/herself? We are going to see something...likely not pleasant. What happens when instead of 8 people paying into SS/Medicare for each one receiving it, drops to One person paying in for each receiving? Let alone that "Young" demographic also having to cover the "welfare" their parents/grandparents had previously been funding? Paying the "Debt service/Interest payments" of at least a $TRILLION dollars per year?
Actuarial reality is going to become Actual Reality

261 I wonder if states can make a law the requires the candidates to disclose the $'s and % of total funding comes from out of state sources in big bold letters and repeated by the candidate right before they say, I'm so-and-so and I approve this message.

262 I agree with the premise that transgenderism offers a more potentially lucrative opportunity and as such is being aggressively promoted and agitated for by the 'stakeholders", including physicians and pharma, but there is another category of stakeholder, the illegal/illicit drug industry. It is correct that the pharmaceutical drug regimen that must be consumed by a transgender patient is sizable, but many (all?) of these same patients also consume mind-altering substances, illegal or otherwise, in order to maintain their illusion (or delusion). This means that over the table and under the table industries are allies in pushing (pun intended) transgender as far as it will go. The revenues from surgery, recovery, conversion, maintenance, therapy, etc are substantial for all involved.

263 RE Trump
I heard him say something the other day I had never heard before.
"Prior to running for President I never went to DC, I had only been there 17 times in my life, and had never spent the night there"

Methinks that info should be more prominent, if not in his speeches, at least in commentary about him.

264 The leaders of the right need to understand they are facing a far left that is bent on replacing functional society with a hierarchy of broken unfunctional people. Over the long term the continued victory of the left will spell doom for our species.

265 " I successfully escaped from California to a deep red Mountain West state. In 2020, after the election, I made an appointment with my GOP state senator to discuss my concerns about voting integrity. She was a late-30s attorney who had lived in the state her whole life and had both her BA and JD from the state university. "

I think I know who you're talking about. RINO Barbie thought she'd be governor.

I know I harp on this a lot but the goal is to remove ~90% of the human population. They're not going to do that all at once and they're not going to use only one mechanism. They'll use war, famine, pestilence (real or man-made), crime, insanity...

267 I live in a Texas county that voted for Trump over Biden 77% to 22% but our local politicians are a bunch of chamber of commerce RINOs who get up to all kinds of mischief. We are gradually working on rooting them out.

268 i couldn`t disagree more with buck...this is fools gold more likely created by chamber of commerce types looking for a quick buck and not playing the long game.......

these lefties are moving for economic reasons...they aren`t changing their historical political beliefs any more than i would if i had reason to move from a red stat to a blue state....

they are locusts...they take their rich blue state pensions and go to places where there is economic advantage....i see this all the time...i talk to guy who relaocated from chicago to taxas and they are as virulently liberal as they ever were...

they`re like locusts....they`ll take what they can and move on after they destroy their new home...they think emotionally...not critically...

ask yourself...are more red states turning purple or are more deep blue states tyrning purple?...just look at the south..

.this is insanity and will end badly...mark it

269 If you move to a red state, you cannot be complacent. You will not be left alone. The Dems have targeted states like TN to flip the legislatures. A friend in San Antonio says the Dems are within shouting distance to turn that county blue. They are like missionaries--they will never stop. They recruit and train candidates and fund them. What is the GOP doing?

270 and this will get worse unless our public education system is overhauled...these people are indoctrinated from day one in public education...this is their core belief system(because they`re exposed to it almost exclusively from day one)....

this isn`t some passing fancy...this is who they are...all these ceos the g.o.pe catered to while the democrats were winning the culture wars are fading into the sunset and being replaced by a younger,much more liberal woke version(just look at what`s happening in every major institution...they have almost total control)....

they don`t have to become conservatives to relocate and reap the benefit ....they aren`t wired that way....they don`t think like that..does anybody really believe all these liberal white women will turn their back on their abortion "theology"?

just not happening

271 Something to keep in mind, throughout our history we as a nation have met and prevailed over issues even more serious than what we face today, with an unbroken success record.

In fact, it's been our heritage to continue the struggle of our predecessors to ensure our Republic endures. With God's help and the unflagging effort of our citizenry we'll prevail here also.

272 “Once a customer is acquired, there is only one transaction. One and done. An abortion is performed and the customer walks away.“

Well, HALF of the customers walk away. The other half go out with the biohazard trash.

273 Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but
when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
