From Vox: Getting worked up over Charles Murray being allowed on a podcast seems a little bizarre. (Here's the podcast.) Under the faux indignation and clickbait headline, however, this is about as good an attempt as any to shore up the Conventional Wisdom that the racial differences in average intel
The NYT and FiveThirtyEight forecasts have split, with NYT thinking a Trump victory is highly likely, but 538 has gone back to giving Hillary a small lead in the chances of winning.

Here's a story that has been kicking around on the Republican rightsphere for awhile, but has now made the leap to the New York Times as Adam Nagourney figures out how to spin it properly: "Old biases ..." UCLA of course is a notorious redoubt of racoon coat-wearing, Stutz Bearcat-driving WASPs, so their legacy of... Read More

As I noted last August, it's not exactly a secret that the Israeli government recruits college students to write online comments. Nor is it a secret that there are other ways to make money promoting Israel. For example, the Israeli broadsheet Haaretz reported: Here for example is a Hasbara Fellowships homepage for American students wanting... Read More

I was walking down Ventura Blvd. a few days ago, when I saw a wiry Latino man lying in the driveway leading to the big parking garage. I went over and told him to get up, somebody was going to to make a quick turn into the driveway and crush his skull like a ripe... Read More

From the Jewish Journal of Greater L.A. (via MondoWeiss): David Brooks’ Son Is In the Israeli Army: Does It Matter? by Rob Eshman 2 days ago One of the more interesting nuggets buried in a long, Hebrew-language interview with New York Times columnist David Brooks in the recent Ha'aretz magazine is the revelation, toward the...

so many incidents -- going back at least to the Tawana Brawley hoax of the 1980s -- that the national media decide to obsess over as case studies of White Racism in Action, the Ferguson, MO story is turning out to be a fiasco. Apparently, the future shooting victim had just looted a convenience store... Read More

I wanted to come back to the popular NYT Magazine article "Why Do Americans Stink at Math?" about how they teach math better in Japan, as you can tell because Japanese students average a higher PISA score than American students. According to the article, the Common Core now offers us another opportunity to teach math... Read More
We constantly read, in the Main Stream Media, boastful quotes from bullying Latino leaders about how their followers are—Real Soon Now!—going to rush to the polls in vast numbers and punish each and every politician who dares take a stand against immigration—especially illegal immigration. For example, in 2010 (shortly before the election in which the... Read More
Have you noticed how the topic of immigration turns Main Stream Media journalists' brains to mush? Traditionally, reporters like to think of themselves as sharp-witted wise guys straight out of a Frank Capramovie. Yet, the more that Diversity becomes the big storyin America, the more insipid becomes the thinking.Simplistic sentiment crowds out intelligence. Just you... Read More
Is “Stereotype Threat”, the currently popular theory that blacks average lower scores on cognitive tests in response to stereotypes held by the testers, just a product of publication bias?—defined as “the tendency for researchers, editors, and pharmaceutical companies to handle the reporting of experimental results that are positive (i.e. they show a significant finding) differently...

Published on the Fourth of July, a New York Times op-ed entitled "TheCenter Shouldn't Hold" by British author Andro Linklater largely slipped through under the radar.

Having written 292 VDARE.com columns over the last six years, I'minundated by feelings of both satisfaction and frustration when reviewing this year's Congressional and media debates over illegal immigration. To their credit, House Republicans and much of the blogosphere get it. (See, for example, postings by Untethered, Udolpho, Parapundit,Mickey Kaus, Glaivester, Your Lying Eyes, Pytheas,... Read More
Recently, one of my readers, an immigrant from Russia whom I will call Vladimir, phoned me. Polished into readable text, our conversation went something like this: Vladimir: Mr. Sailer, I read all of articles you write and like them. Me: Well, thank you. That's most kind. Vladimir: But, I want to ask you question. I... Read More
