President Bush's first act to kick off 2004 back in January was to unveilan immigration reform plan that was nothing more than a massive amnesty for illegal aliens. Mr. Bush's purpose was to impress the nation's growing Hispanic vote with how simpatico he is and to give them a good reason to vote for him.... Read More
The most recent contribution of the Open Borders Lobby to the decomposition of American civilization is the immigrant gang, which has now spread itself from the inner precincts of San Diego to such places as the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. In the summer issue of the City Journal, published by the libertarian think tank the... Read More
If there was any flash of humor to relieve the excruciating tedium of the Democratic National Convention last week, it probably came from the lips of the Rev. Al Sharpton, who was allowed his several minutes at the podium at a time when the grand masters of the convention hoped nobody was paying attention. Unfortunately,... Read More
If you'd like to cast a ballot for a conservative this year, forget George W. Bush and don't even blink an eye at the liberal drip from Massachusetts who's the hero of the week. Ralph Nader, believe it or not, actually has some interesting (not necessarily good or right) things to say, but it would... Read More
The 2004 presidential election may turn out to be decided by racial identities. For the last decade or so, the Republican Party has abandoned all pretense of controlling mass immigration on the superstitious ground that immigration control will alienate the booming Hispanic vote. Now, as two major news stories last week suggested, that superstition is... Read More
Ideas Have Consequences is the title of a 1948 book by conservative thinker Richard Weaver that in recent years has become a kind of slogan for movement conservatives trying to convince themselves and their financial angels that their beliefs have triumphed at last. The lesson we learn from a recent New York Times article on... Read More
"How can Americans love their nation if they hate its government?" asked neoconservative Bill Kristol some years ago. Very easily, is the proper answer, not only from American conservatives (real ones, not the pseudo-cons Mr. Kristol commands) but even their French allies. In a recent article in Le Figaro, a leading French magazine, novelist Jean... Read More
It must be difficult for President Bush's speechwriters to keep coming up with plausible reasons as to why the United States should have gone to war with Iraq, but the White House wordsmiths surely earn their salaries. This week the president took himself to a rally in Tennessee where he once again explained why "we... Read More
Harvard scholar Samuel P. Huntington's Who Are We?, undoubtedly the most important criticism of mass immigration by a major academic figure in the last 50 years, has now been published, and if theonslaught against it has not been quite the gang rape some predicted, the establishment embrace of the book has not exactly been a...

With 90 percent of black voters and 65 percent of Hispanics supporting Vice President Al Gore in the 2000 election, Mr. Gore's successor as the Democratic presidential candidate has to understand that he can't possibly win this year without similar support from both groups. Indeed, John Kerry, as recent polls suggest, will win just such... Read More
Well over a year ago, neoconservative David Frum unleashed an unpleasant gob of spit in National Review accusing a number of veteran conservative writers (including me) of being "unpatriotic conservatives" [NRO, March 19, 2003] because we opposed President Bush's war with Iraq. Today Mr. Frum ought to rewrite his article. The founder and editor ofNational... Read More
No sooner had the ballots begun to settle in the Republican primary race in Utah's Third District last week than the Open Borders battalions began flapping and crowing about their smashing victory over the forces of nativism and bigotry. The facts, when disentangled from Open Borders fabrications and fantasies, are quite different. In the fabrications... Read More
When President Bush made his grand tour of Africa last year, he had little to say about the land seizures and violent assaults on white farmers that the government of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe has carried out, nor did he insist that South Africa's president Thabo Mbeki do anything about it. "I don't have any intention... Read More
Probably nothing has made neoconservative chicken hawks flap and crow quite like the conclusion announced last week by the Sept 11 Commission that it could establish no "collaborative relationship"between Al Qaeda and the regime of Saddam Hussein. For the next several days the Bush administration (including the president himself) and its water-fetchers in the media... Read More
While the Bush administration thinks amnesty is the way to deal with illegal immigration, the people who have to live with it are trying to control it themselves. The San Francisco Chronicle ran a recent sizeable story about the rise of citizens' patrols that police the borders in Arizona—where thousands of illegals come across every... Read More
Slowly but surely the Democratic Party and its pals on the left are figuring out how they have managed to lose most presidential elections for the last 30 years or so—by alienating white males. Now they are working on what they might do to get the white guys back, but progress on that front seems... Read More
In so far as Big Business has a bible, Forbes magazine is one of itsgospels, so it's a bit odd that in its June 7 issue Forbes offered a detailed and graphic account of how the big business of trafficking in illegal immigrants operates. Then again, for the hot gospellers of capitalism, it's just business—even... Read More
The good news, as reported across front pages last week, is that some 250,000 new jobs were created in the American economy in the last month. The bad news, at least for those who hold the jobs or would like to, is that they may soon go overseas. The June issue of American Demographics explains... Read More
By no means the least of Ronald Reagan's achievements as man and president was that he may well have been the first chief executive since Herbert Hoover who did not deserve a prison term for his crimes. He also managed to hold the presidency twice, hand his office over to a designated successor and remain... Read More
Is the American conservative movement as totally bankrupt as it appears to be? For the last four years, conservatives have whimpered and whined about the insufficient conservative principles of George W. Bush, and properly so. What they don't want to remember, of course, is that they're the oneswho picked Mr. Bush in the first place—and... Read More
In the unlikely event you might have considered taking seriously last week's warnings by the Attorney General and the Director of the FBIthat Al Qaeda is planning another terrorist attack on the United States, Homeland Security czar Tom Ridge was able to put you at your ease. Don't let a little terrorism spoil the Memorial... Read More
President Bush can explain his Iraq policies all he wants, but he'll need more than that to stay in the White House. What he needs are called "voters," and in large part because of the kind of immigration policies the president and his party have supported, he may not have enough of them to win... Read More
Six months before the election, and some 20 percent of Republican voters say they are not necessarily committed to voting for George W. Bush. Welcome to the club, but meanwhile, Republicans are doing everything they can think of to insure their maximum leader goes the way of his dad and Bob Dole, among other recent... Read More
For most of this month, while the rest of the country worried about what was happening in Iraq, the state of Maryland had other concerns—namely, whether its governor, Robert L. Ehrlich, is too insensitive to the Tower of Babel into which mass immigration has helped convert his state and the nation. Mr. Ehrlich, a Republican... Read More
I confess that I have not read and have no intention of reading any of the endless buckets of bilge that have spilled onto op-ed pages in recent days about the glories of the Brown vs. Board of Educationdecision, the fiftieth anniversary of which is upon us this week. For every one of the countless... Read More
Big Business and its bottomless appetite for cheap labor are by no means the only pillars of the Open Borders Lobby that has helped flood the country with Third World immigrants. There are also the churches, themselves ever hungry for new members as their own religious liberalism drives away their old members. This week the... Read More
Is there any particular reason why Americans should be surprised at the tales of torture coming out of the world's youngest democracy in Iraq? What else exactly did you expect? That we really went to Iraq for the purpose of creating a democracy? My purpose is not to sound either blasé or cynical about the... Read More
The hunt is on for Samuel P. Huntington, the distinguished Harvard political scientist whose new book Who Are We? lifts a skeptical eyebrow at mass immigration and the cultural devastation it inflicts. Mr. Huntington, author of the acclaimed Clash of Civilizations a few years back, has already raised ripples in the placid ponds of elite... Read More
If Islamic terrorism has contributed anything at all to Western civilization, it may actually have helped preserve it. Nothing has made Europeans wake up to what they have allowed mass immigration to do to them than the jihad many Muslims are licking their whiskers to wage against the new countries to which they have invited...

In one of its rare adventures into the no man's land beyond the Beltway, the Washington Post last week served up a series on What America Is Really Like, concluding with an extended scrutiny of what is now called "Blue America" (actually, red or pink America), namely, that part of the country that voted for...

"Hate crimes" are always good for a headline, even when they're fake. Last week the Los Angeles Times confirmed what many have long suspected and in some cases known—there are a lot more phony"hate crimes" padding the count than the bare numbers reported tell us. [As Hate-Crime Concerns Rise, So Does the Threat of Hoaxes,... Read More
Somewhat breathlessly, the New York Times has discovered, as a headline this week informed us, that "Lack of Resolution In Iraq Finds Conservatives Divided." [by David D. Kilpatrick, April 19, 2004]. Translated into American, that means many conservatives are less than enchanted with the quick and easy cakewalk to peace and democracy in Iraq on... Read More
The most recent contribution to racial harmony comes fromCharlottesville, Virginia, where the Washington Post reports that some people are alarmed at "racial profiling" by local cops in their efforts to catch a black serial rapist. ['DNA Dragnet' Makes Charlottesville Uneasy, By Maria Glod, April 14, 2004] Thanks to the foes of "racism," the rapist may... Read More
Forget September 11th. For the last several weeks, the commission investigating the terrorist attacks of that date have grilled just about every policy wonk, major or minor, past or present, this side of the moons of Jupiter in an effort to find somebody—mainly the Bush administration—to blame. The administration may share blame, but unless someone... Read More
Only a few weeks after the anniversary of the grand cakewalk through Iraq by American forces, it is obvious that the war that was supposed to have been over a year ago is not only still going on but is escalating—and that American forces are not exactly winning. Sometime between the Madrid bombing last month... Read More
The tenth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide is upon us this week, and some predict yet another African genocide is about to unfold in Sudan. In South Africa, however, where wicked white supremacy was dismantled (also a decade ago) and black majority rule established, all is happiness, a veritable cakewalk to utopia, according to neo-conservative... Read More
With the grotesque spectacle of the burned and bludgeoned bodies ofAmerican civilians hanging from a bridge over the Euphrates, Americans need to start thinking about what the Bush administration has dragged the nation into, how we can get out of it and why it happened at all. The answers to the last question popped up... Read More
If you ever get into an argument about immigration, sooner or later (probably sooner) somebody will majestically inform you, "But immigrants take jobs that Americans won't do. Without immigrants, lettuce would cost 10 dollars a head." Sometimes the lettuce will cost 20 dollars a head, but the point—and absence of facts—is still the same: Immigration... Read More
After decades of hiring illegal aliens and lobbying against any and all restrictions on immigration, Big Business is about to find out the real costs of the Open Borders it has subsidized. In California, the Washington Times reported last week, thousands of Mexicans who have worked for some of the state's and the nation's largest... Read More
Harvard scholar Samuel P. Huntington has not even published his newbook on the cultural threat of mass Third World immigration, but already the Open Borders onslaught on book and author has begun. In fact, the attack began last month with both Hispanic and neo-conservative supporters of the Third Worldization of America chiming in. Not since... Read More
OK, I've seen Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ and am therefore entitled to pronounce the definitive and final word on a subject over which more ink has already been spilled than cuttlefish can squirt. I have to confess the film did nothing for me religiously and even less aesthetically. It's a well-made... Read More
With what may have been the single most effective act of terrorism in history, the forces of Al Qaeda have managed to knock out of the American-led coalition of their enemies one of its major (indeed, one of its few) European allies and shatter the delusions of victories the Bush administration loves to flaunt. What... Read More
If even Harvard professors can figure out what mass immigration is doing to America, can Big Business be far behind? The Washington Postthis week ran an insipid satire ["Hey Professor, Assimilate This!"Letters responding] on Harvard scholar Samuel Huntington's forthcoming book on the cultural dangers of mass immigration, but ironically Business Week treats it a bit... Read More
Despite unveiling a plan for the mass amnesty of illegal aliens in January, President Bush is still not satisfied that America is the"welcoming society" he likes to claim it is. Nor is his counterpart, President Vicente Fox of Mexico, with whom Mr. Bush palavered last weekend at what used to be American soil in Texas.... Read More
With mass immigration shredding what Harvard scholar Samuel Huntington calls the "Anglo Protestant core" of American civilization, the Open Borders lobby remains delighted with the benefits the shredding brings. Last week, just as news of Professor Huntington's magisterial article was about to break, historian Stanley Karnow warbled excitedly about the shredding in the Los Angeles... Read More
In its lead story analyzing President Bush's endorsement of a constitutional amendment to ban "gay marriage" last week, TheWashington Post wrote, "With President Bush's embrace yesterday of a marriage amendment, the compassionate conservative of 2000 has shown he is willing, if necessary, to rekindle the culture wars in 2004."[A Move To Satisfy Conservative Base, By... Read More
It was probably inevitable that sooner or later the truth about mass immigration and its impact on American culture would seep down toHarvard University. This week it happened, and a tip of the hat is in order to Harvard's distinguished scholar Samuel P. Huntington for arriving at much the same conclusion that I and many... Read More
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a self-appointed"watchdog" organization in Montgomery, Alabama that purports to keep a sharp eye out for "racism" and "hate." Despite its name, it doesn't seem to have much to do with either the South or the law, let alone poverty, other than avoiding the latter for its own officers,... Read More
With Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry now the obvious winner of the Democratic primaries, it has proved to be true once again that highly unified black voters determine the party's nominee. Last fall I wrote a column arguing this would be the case this year as it has been in every election since 1988 where there... Read More
With a majority of Republicans opposing President Bush's amnesty plan for illegal immigrants and even Republican lawmakers in revolt over it, the Open Borders Lobby has closed ranks and rallied behind it. Last week the Wall Street Journal editorial page, long the Pravda of Open Borders propaganda, published what purports to be a"Conservative Statement of... Read More
