The midterm elections this coming Fall are shaping up to be really interesting, culturally as well as politically. The political question is of course whether the Republican Party will lose control of the House and/or the Senate. Current pollster wisdom is: Yes, the GOP will likely lose the House, but probably not the Senate. There... Read More

On Virginia Dare’s 430th birthday last August 18, I wrote #DareToCelebrate Virginia Dare’s Birthday! Will Her Statue Be Torn Down Next—Along With America? Right on cue, the Washington Post on Thursday morning carried How a child born more than 400 years ago became a symbol of white nationalism, subhead "Virginia Dare and the myth of... Read More
Being as I am a self-appointed explicator of things Latin to Americans curious about what lies to the south, and has come north, I occasionally and in a scattershot and prejudiced manner try to offer a picture of life below the border. There is more to the place than narcos and MS-13. If I lived... Read More
Glenn Beck is putting on a Make America Great Again hat [Glenn Beck blames media for complete 180: ‘I’ll vote for Trump,’ by Virginia Kruta, Daily Caller, May 18, 2018]. The Republican Party and Conservatism Inc. slowly reconciles itself to President Donald Trump. The Commander in Chief is at 50 percent approval ratings in some... Read More
The forcible separation of parents and children for “months or longer” under any circumstances, even for illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexican border, would have to rank high in the annals of cruelty and heartlessness. As Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced recently, the U.S. now has just such a “zero tolerance” policy at that border. No more... Read More
Trump’s Strategic Assault on Democracy, Word by Word
Consider us officially in an Orwellian world, though we only half realize it. While we were barely looking, significant parts of an American language long familiar to us quite literally, and in a remarkably coherent way, went down the equivalent of George Orwell’s infamous Memory Hole. This hit me in a personal way recently. I... Read More

It's been a depressing few days on the immigration front. Not least depressing has been the collapse of the lawsuits against Disney World. Just to remind you: Disney was in the news three years ago for laying off American IT workers and replacing them with cheaper workers from India on H-1B visas. The American workers... Read More

At least one Trump Effect is still working: When Republican candidates want to win, they champion immigration patriotism. Thus, in a special election Democrats were hoping to win, Republican candidate Debbie Lesko held off a strong challenge by explicitly supporting President Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexican border. Still, Lesko’s victory was far narrower than... Read More

Seeing, Saying and Pseudotopia
It seems such an obvious truth: In regione caecorum rex est luscus — “In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.” But the English writer H.G. Wells turned the proverb on its head in his short-story “The Country of the Blind” (1904), one of the cleverest and most profound ever written. Wells’... Read More

It’s hard to feel sorry for liberals when they reap the results of the policies they force on the rest of us. A middle-aged woman, who campaigned against the deportation of migrants from her native Sweden, was raped by the very refugees she advocates for. She met two Afghani teens on the street, outside a...

The U.S. Frontier as a Zone of Profit and Sacrifice
At first, I thought I had inadvertently entered an active war zone. I was on a lonely two-lane road in southern New Mexico heading for El Paso, Texas. Off to the side of the road, hardly concealed behind some desert shrubs, I suddenly noticed what seemed to be a tank. For a second, I thought... Read More
Recently, President Trump declared war on undocumented immigrants heading for the southern border -- you know, all those marauding “rapists” and their pals -- and, as seems appropriate in any “war,” he promptly ordered the mobilization of the National Guard. Troops from its ranks were to be dispatched border-wards permanently, or at least until his... Read More
A fortnight ago, Viktor Orban and his Fidesz Party won enough seats in the Hungarian parliament to rewrite his country's constitution. To progressives across the West, this was disturbing news. For the bete noire of Orban's campaign was uber-globalist George Soros. And Orban's commitments were to halt any further surrenders of Hungarian sovereignty and independence... Read More

“Merit-based immigration” is seen as the gold standard of immigration reform by many Republicans and conservative policy wonks. But it could lead to their political ruin. We already have a clear window into what a merit-based policy could bring to the political landscape: look at the Indian colonization of Seattle’s Eastside—the area across Lake Washington...

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream….
The obvious and intelligent course regarding immigration from the south is to stop further influx and assimilate those who are not going away and, being citizens, cannot be deported. Mr. Trump’s placing of troops along the border, if carried out, can quickly and practically accomplish the first of these, as his silly wall would not.... Read More

From his speaking and tweeting earlier this week, after a briefing from Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, it is plain that President Donald J. Trump did not know, until Secretary Nielsen enlightened him, that there is no legal way for the U.S.A. to prevent most foreigners from just walking into our country, then settling... Read More

Planning for a show-down, a column of 1,500 Central Americans, largely from Honduras, has been beating a path to the Mexican-American border. Some report that the column has been halted; others dispute that. Interviewed by Reuters in Mexico, a sojourning mother of seven—what are the chances none is an MS13 gangster?—signaled her intention to proceed... Read More
On many issues -- naming Scalia-like judges and backing Reagan-like tax cuts -- President Trump is a conventional Republican. Where he was exceptional in 2016, where he stood out starkly from his GOP rivals, where he won decisive states like Pennsylvania, was on his uniquely Trumpian agenda to put America and Americans first -- from...

It’s the blecks (1): Guns. My biggest email bag of the month came after I hypothesized, in the March 23rd Radio Derb, that the enthusiasm white Americans display for owning guns, unusualamong Western nations, is connected to the other distinctive thing about our country: the presence in it, from the beginning, of a large black...

Whatever he does or does not accomplish, the campaign and administration of President Donald Trump were invaluable because they revealed the true nature of America’s institutions. Thus former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who took an oath to uphold the Constitution and was once entrusted to defend and interpret it, proclaims in the New... Read More

So Congress finally passed a budget. It’s a blockbuster—$1.3 trillion, or around four thousand dollars for every man, woman, and child in the U.S.A. Basically it is a compound made up of (a) anything Leftist Democrats could wish for, and (b) anything that the Jeb Bush wing of the Republican Party, and that wing’s Big... Read More
Already Hell Enough for This Muslim-American
Understand this: I’m an American veteran. I’m also a Muslim-American in a country in which, in these years, that hasn’t exactly been the happiest category to fall into. Now, let me tell you a little story. Recently, I had an ominous dream. It was noon on a grey, cold January 20th, 2020, and Donald Trump... Read More

I’ve got to assume that very few Americans ever heard of Telford, a district in the English West Midlands. Steve Sailer admits to never having heard of it; and if Steve hasn’t heard of it, nobody has. This is excusable. There was no such place as Telford until 1968. That was when bureaucratic managerialism in... Read More

Rejecting the President’s Manichaean Worldview
The immigration debate seems to have gone crazy. President Obama’s widely popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which offered some 750,000 young immigrants brought to the United States as children a temporary reprieve from deportation, is ending... except it isn’t... except it is... President Trump claims to support it but ordered its... Read More
Forget Emma Lazarus’s poetry and the Statue of Liberty; you really don’t want to be an immigrant in today’s America. As Dara Lind recently pointed out at Vox, being an immigrant or the child of one (even if you're a U.S. citizen) now means living in a “miasma of fear.” That’s the conclusion of two... Read More
Robert Bartley, the late editorial page editor of The Wall Street Journal, was a free trade zealot who for decades championed a five-word amendment to the Constitution: "There shall be open borders." Bartley accepted what the erasure of America's borders and an endless influx or foreign peoples and goods would mean for his country. Said... Read More
The warnings were stunning. Just six weeks before Nikolas Cruz killed 14 students and three teachers at his former high school in Parkland, Florida, a woman acquainted with him told the FBI tip line “I know he’s going to explode” and expressed her fear that he might go to a school and begin “shooting the...

On Immigration and Terrorism, the Trump Administration Misleads About Its Own Misleading Data
When you see an immigrant or a foreign visitor, especially from a Muslim country, should your first thought be that you might be looking at a possible terrorist? Clearly, that’s how the Trump administration wants Americans to react. It was the message in the president's first address to Congress a year ago last week when... Read More
This year marks the sixtieth anniversary of the publication of Michael Young’s book The Rise of the Meritocracy. You can read the book online here.

In a surprise overtime victory in the finals of the Olympic men's hockey tournament, the Russians defeated Germany, 4-3. But the Russians were not permitted to have their national anthem played or flag raised, due to a past doping scandal. So, the team ignored the prohibition and sang out the Russian national anthem over the... Read More
Baby ritualistically abandoned, Saigon, 2018
In Saigon, the foreign tourists stay mostly downtown, where they can patronize American bars, and restaurants serving Indian, Thai, Korean, Italian, Mexican and Middle Eastern food, not to mention McDonald’s, Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Popeyes, Starbucks and Lotteria, the last a Japanese chain. With English as the lingua franca, they can be overseas, yet... Read More
In addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints —...

I’ve recently been cheering the fact that our country has awoken from its immigration slumbers and is now at last discussing the issue publicly in a reasoned, well-informed, grown-up way. Not ex-President George W. Bush, though. He’s still mumbling out the threadbare slogans of fifteen years ago—slogans even the cheap-labor shills are now embarrassed to... Read More

Pelosi’s Democrats Are Simply A Post-American Party
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi may occasionally forget who the current president is, but she just roused herself for an eight hours long speech about the need to give Amnesty to illegals. Her celebration reveals the terrible truth about the Democrat Party: it can no longer be called an “American” political grouping in any meaning... Read More

Young right-leaning Jews don’t have many Jewish figures to look up to. Illustrious elder scholar and “alt right godfather” Paul Gottfried. Taki columnist and revisionist David Cole Stein.

(Spoiler: Answer Is No If He Doesn’t Propose Taxing Remittances)
We will finally find out if the memes are real. In President Trump’s magisterial August 31, 2016 campaign speech on immigration in Arizona, he vowed he would “immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive Amnesties.” Today, President Trump says he is offering Democrats a “wonderful deal” on DACA, including a pathway to citizenship. The Donald... Read More
Should We Build a Wall to Keep Them Out?
In the past couple of weeks, thanks to the president’s racist comments about Haiti and African countries he can’t even name -- remember “Nambia”? -- as well as the stamp of approval he awarded future immigrants from Norway, we’ve seen a surprising amount of commentary about that fortunate country. Let me just say: those Norwegians... Read More

President Donald Trump starts 2018 with a political win, as Chuck Schumer’s gambit to shut down the government to defend illegal aliens has collapsed [Schumer: We’re reopening government with commitment to vote on DACA if deal isn’t reached by February 8th, by Ian Hanchett, Breitbart, January 22, 2018]. The Democrats did win a supposed “commitment”... Read More

Merit-Based Immigration Another Cheap Labor Racket, DACA Fuss Just ANNOYING
As I go to pixel, the congresscritters are still fighting over whether to close down the federal government in the name of 800,000 illegal aliens. I’ll leave you to find out the result in tomorrow morning’s news. As I noted last week, the standard of debate over immigration is higher than it used to be—better... Read More

President Trump's questioning of immigration into the United States from what he crudely called "shithole" countries masks a more vexing question: What makes a country, the place or the people? Does "the country" create the man or does the man make the country? To listen to the deformed logic of the president's detractors, it's the... Read More
Stark Madness and Inmiscibility
Mr. Trump’s comment regarding his preference for immigrants from Norway instead of “shithole countries” such as Haiti engendered among the commentariat a great squealing. I cannot fathom this. Are they geographic virgins, and just don’t know anything of the world? Is it only the usual schadenfreudian gotcha pile-on? The if-A-then-B response to stimulus of a... Read More
President Trump "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. ... I cannot believe ... any president has ever spoken the words that I ... heard our president speak yesterday." So wailed Sen. Dick Durbin after departing the White House. And what caused the minority leader to almost faint dead away? Trump called Haiti a... Read More

Friday finds me in an unusually buoyant mood about the immigration outlook—long term. But first, was the President’s much-denounced remark fair? Let’s investigate. In Haiti‘s case the President’s remark was very apt. From the National Public Radio website, dated July 29th 2017: You Probably Don’t Want To Know About Haiti’s Sewage Problems (by Rebecca Hersher)... Read More

"DACA." That's the magic word, the "Open Sesame" of sorts, that stopped Democrats from saying President Donald Trump was senile. DACA is the acronym for "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals." The DACA program is Barack Obama's grant of education, food stamps, health care, a shot at a job and a reprieve from deportation for the... Read More

On Accommodating Reality
Methinks that, for the good of the country, it is time that the “Alt-Right,” those bitterly hostile to our Latin-America population, stop and think. There is a difference between opposing further immigration, a good idea, and constantly attacking American citizens. Many good reasons existed for preventing massive immigration from the south. But it happened. Some... Read More
Boy, they’re dragging out this DACA thing, aren’t they? Where are we up to this week? As I’ve been reporting, there are two issues in play here: Funding the government, and resolving the DACA business—those 800,000 illegal aliens who were given temporary work permits, probably illegally, by Barack Obama … and who are not, by...

With regard to Mr. Trump’s Border Wall, I am skeptical. Now, I freely concede that I am not an authority on Border Walls. In fact, I have never built a Border Wall. This may surprise readers. Yet it is true. So all that follows is in the nature of speculation. Be warned. Still, though I... Read More

At age 18, Theo volunteered for the Marines and was sent to Vietnam. Based near the demilitarized zone, he saw much fighting and lost most of his left arm in 1968. Post war, Theo learned karate, opened a dojo, married, fathered three children, got his college degree and became a high school teacher. The Philly... Read More

It’s great that we now have an administration in Washington, at any rate a Justice Department, willing to round up and deport illegal aliens. But federal officers charged with doing so are opposed by a mighty army of lawyers, products of our CultMarxified law schools this past forty years. They also face a lot of... Read More
