Good point, Bill. If only somebody with your foresight had been in positions of power and influence within the GOP since the 1980s.

    So Bill understands that demography is destiny. And he also understands what identity politics are. We are in a race whereby one party is using demographic change to shape the electoral battlefield faster than the other side adopts identity politics to more unify the white vote into a voting bloc.

    If the GOP can poach white voters from the democrats faster than the democrats can mint new voters, then perhaps some sane reforms can be passed. Since the size of the democrat’s white voter pool is quite large, there are a lot of votes that can be poached if the GOP endeavors to do so.

    This is the reason why we here all the laments recently about identity politics. The GOP is too stupid to understand, but their enemies are one step ahead. Like a chess master they are praying their opponent does not do a certain move that might set him up for the win. And their opponent so far is too dense to see that move.

    Illegal Migrants Boast of Aiding Democrats’ Campaigns

    The Democrats’ 2018 election campaign is being aided by illegal immigrants, including the younger migrants who received the quasi-legal DACA amnesty from President Barack Obama.

    DACA recipients “have talked to more than 600K voters!” according to a Tweet from Cristina Jimenez, an Ecuador-born migrant who is a co-founder of the United We Dream, a pro-amnesty group of illegals created by progressive lawyers and union organizers.

    Rush was right that the GOP was gaslit by the Russian-collusion hoax coming out of the gate. Recall after winning in Nov. 2016, Trump was almost immediately attacked with the Russia collusion crap. And there were all the leaks and guys like Flynn were getting caught up in the trap.

    The GOP really thought Trump was not going to last. They probably thought that Russian crap was real and he’d be impeached or forced to resign. And they proceeded to waste away much of the first year thinking that they were working with a lame duck.

    So in the end the Russian-collusion crap probably paid dividends for the democrats by totally sidetracking the new administration and keeping what should have been a friendly congress at arms length while they waited to see when it was safe to come out and work with Trump.

    Republican senate candidates are just barely eaking out victories in Florida, Arizona, and Texas – states they generally had few problems in 20 years ago.

    While Kemp will probably win Georgia and Cruz held on in Texas, the barbarians are at the gate. Radical leftists almost won these races in the South, and they did well enough to bring Democrats into the House from those states.

    A lesbian won a House seat in Kansas and even Steve King had to sweat in Iowa. So the Senate went well tonight, but these suburban losses, from Richmond to Atlanta to Dallas, are a bad omen. Looks like a combo of “diversity” and pampered, status whoring suburban women.

    The good news from this election is that in spite of all the huffing and puffing, in spite of the mid-terms generally favoring the party that doesn’t control the White House, the GOP managed to (again) exceed expectations. They may very well end up netting 4-5 seats in the Senate. They will probably lose the House, but not nearly as badly as some feared. From my local perspective, Mia Effing Love (R-Haiti) appears to be on her way out. I once called her office and threatened to vote against her even though I don’t live in her district (LOL).

    Hopefully Republicans will take away the right lessons from this election. Ever so slowly they seem to be coming around to the realization that taking a stand in the culture wars doesn’t hurt, and that defending the right to control our borders is actually a big plus.

    They seem to have done so. As of right now Mitt Romney is winning Utah with only (yes, *only*) 60% of the vote. In Salt Lake County he’s just 2.6% ahead of the Democrat. Orrin Hatch, who many Utahns were long tiring of, was ranging from 65-69% of the votes in most of his elections. You can attribute a big part of the difference to Californians and others who have flooded into Utah over the last six years. And of course there is Arizona and Nevada and Colorado, too.

    Have we reached peak Nazi yet?

    MUENSTER, Germany (AP) — A 94-year-old former SS enlisted man went on trial Tuesday in Germany, facing hundreds of counts of accessory to murder for alleged crimes committed during the years he served as a guard at the Nazis’ Stutthof concentration camp.

    Johann Rehbogen was pushed into the Muenster state court trial in a wheelchair, a wooden cane at his side and briefcase on his lap. He appeared alert and attentive as presiding judge Rainer Brackhane asked him questions, answering in slow, concise sentences.

    Rehbogen is accused of working as a guard at the camp east of Danzig, which is today the Polish city of Gdansk, from June 1942 to about early September 1944.

    There is no evidence linking him to a specific crime, but over 60,000 people were killed at Stutthof and prosecutors argue that as a guard, he was an accessory to at least hundreds of those deaths.

    The retired civil servant showed no reaction as prosecutor Andreas Brendel read the accusations against him, detailing the horrific way prisoners at Stutthof were killed. Some were given lethal injections of gasoline or phenol directly to their hearts, shot or starved. Others were forced outside in winter without clothes until they died of exposure, or put to death in the gas chamber.

    GOP faces a demographic issue, and it’s not Mexicans. It is Boomers and older GenXers. They are the fiscal and electoral problem. The younger generations get it, even if opposed to Trump for stylistic reasons.

    Other problem is messaging. GOP needs to attract women. Quickest way to do this is with a strong, paternalistic message geared around protecting maternity benefits from subversive elements (immigrants, blacklivesmatter, et al). This would also peel away higher iq assimilated Mexicans, who are attracted to machismo and paternalistic government.

    Strange that on a board with so many apologists for 1930′s national socialists, there is also an obtuseness to their electoral success. It was women.

    Pittsburgh and Allegheny County police along with the FBI will hold an active shooter drill Thursday night in Squirrel Hill…The drill will take place from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Jewish Community Center, 5738 Forbes Ave…Darlington Road will be closed from St. Edmund’s Way to Murray Avenue…Residents may notice a large police presence in the area…The exercise is closed to the public and the media.

    I think not many people know that the FBI et al held an ‘active shooter drill’ at the same location where people were (ahem, allegedly) shot and killed in a synagogue — I think even someone who does not regard himself as a ‘conspiracy theorist’ might find that to be an interesting coincidence — someone of the latter persuasion would call it a rehearsal, rather than a “drill”.

    It must be said Trump has been better at making his base feel good than actually getting things done which will improve the lives of working America, though you have to acknowledge the huge institutional and internal GOP opposition he faces, quite apart from the Dems.

    I hope he won’t be the USA’s Mrs Thatcher – hated by the Left, adored by her base, inherited an economy based on making things, left one based on huge debt, service “industries” and selling houses to each other.

    On the other hand Thatcher didn’t even seem to see the culture wars, let alone take part – and she was big on “the open economy”. Can’t say Trump isn’t a culture warrior and his economic instincts are anything but globalist.

    The Trumpettes are still in denial. It was always perfectly obvious that Trump’s only concern in any situation is how to monetize it to his advantage. He has been a lot of sound and fury, but not much in terms of concrete results in terms of his own agenda. He has pushed the mainstream GOP agenda of tax cuts for the rich, unnecessary military spending and putting more movement conservatives on the SC. There is a good argument that “the Trump show” has allowed the GOP to accomplish a lot more than it would have under a President Cruz or Bush, but in terms of being a “master persuader” or changing the social and demographic direction of the country Trump has been a complete failure.

    The repubs expanded their majority in the senate, in part (or maybe mostly) because of the Kavanaugh debacle. Of course, the media can’t talk about that. The dems taking the house has to be the big news. In one way, it obviously is, because it changes the direction of the house, but the narrative that the media wants is, “a repudiation of Trump.” They don’t want “a repudiation of ‘I am Spartacus!’ ”

    Nowadays, whenever the dems win, the media cries, “The people have spoken!” When the republicans win, the media cries, “The people have succumbed to the puppet masters of hate!” The governor races of Kansas, Georgia and Florida point this out. In Kansas, the people have spoken. In Florida and Georgia, fear mongering white supremacists were elected. Also, a black lesbian on the Yahoo election broadcast said that Rep. Steve King of Iowa “went to Europe to meet with neo-nazis.” (King won, thankfully. What a brilliant puppet master he is.)

    In the long term, last night’s election results most likely benefit Trump. A flamboyantly leftist and extremist house is exactly what’s needed over the next two years to get Trump reelected in 2020…just like an an extreme leftist judiciary committee helped the Senate become more Republican. The House will now spend most of it’s time trying to undermine the democratic process by nullifying the election of 2016, and will get little else done besides that. A lot of Americans aren’t going to like that.

  72. AnonyBot says:

    I think the lessons of this election (and of 2016) for the GOP:

    1) Sticking to your principles wins votes.

    2) Hispanics (see: Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, California & Texas) will never be natural Republicans.

    3) Sounding too strident on immigration enforcement (unless you’re Donald Trump) is generally going to cost you, but being firmly pro-enforcement is both a winning issue and the only way that Republicans are going to continue to win in the future. The good news is that anyone sounding slightly less strident than Trump now actually sounds perfectly reasonable, and even moderate.

    4) And, finally, Trump needs to step down in 2020. He is not going to win re-election in two years. Republicans did lose the House, and lost several races they shouldn’t have.

    Trump has done a great job dragging (some of) the GOP kicking and screaming into reality on immigration, and he’s taught them some valuable lessons on the value of standing your ground in the culture wars, but his language and manner can be extremely caustic and he still turns off a whole lot of people the GOP needs if it wants to win elections. We need to win the House back in 2020, and the Senate map will not be nearly as favorable.

    And, yes, though I voted for him myself in 2016, I am one of those people who thought there was no chance in hell that he would actually win, so I could certainly be wrong. But he only barely won then (by ~80,000 votes) and he will not have the good fortune to be running against Hillary Clinton again.

  73. ZeroDay says:

    Tie immigration to rising cost of having children and reduced ability for moms to stay at home in early years. Scrap “rapists and killer” rhetoric, which seems dumb to educated voters. Message should be “immigrants are steeling from you and your children.” Or “Your wife has to return to work after childbirth to pay for a caravan of illiterate Hondurans.”

    Agree that maternity benefits is too narrow. Should be a general sanctity of women. All of the transgender, radical feminist stuff could easily be flipped into a war on motherhood. The BBQ Becky stuff, a war on women’s ability to feel safe. The Dems, driven by dumb fringe elements, would double down.

    Pairing this with a motherhood-centric campaign and policy proposals in 2020 would be a winner for the GOP, and would provide a more palatable way of proposing immigration restriction.

    Is it true in the US? 1 in 12 black Americans voted for Trump and 1 out of 8 black Americans with a college degree voted for Trump. In many American families the wife votes one way and the husband votes the other way.

    Wrong. Kristol is a professional liar.

    He’s known damn well for decades that demographics is destiny when it comes to elections, at least in the aggregate. He wanted this because he felt that it was good for Jews and Israel. Simple as that.

    Actually, I have more respect for Kristol than most around here. He works for his people – rich Jews. And he’s done a masterful job of helping keep gentile White Republicans from seeing what was right in front of their faces, namely that importing millions and millions of Mexicans, Central Americans and Asians would doom the GOP and gentile Whites in general.

    Don’t get me wrong. He was working with a willing audience, but he still had to keep up charade.

    He can finally let down the mask because the game is over. The changing demographics of the country will grind down gentile Whites and the GOP. It’s over! Not today, not tomorrow, maybe not in a decade or even two, but non-Whites with just a little help from cuck Whites (and they will exist) will control the presidency and the House permanently in time, which means that they’ll also control the Supreme Court (though that will be slightly tempered by a decent number of GOP senators).

    Look at the demographics of Americans births. Whites are down to 50%. Add in continued immigration and Whites will eventually fall to less than 50% of the population. It won’t happen anytime soon, but it will happen.

    Put Whites at 60% of the population. Let’s assume that 75% of them vote. Now let’s say that 60% of non-Whites vote.

    That makes Whites 65% of voters and non-Whites 35%. Slam dunk, right. Wrong. Non-whites will vote 80% for the Dems. Giving them a guaranteed 28% of vote. The Dems will only need to get ~33% of White voters to win. Single White women will give them a lot of that, so they only need ~20% of other White voters – gays, single young guys, cuck urban/suburban Whites.

    What happens when Whites are 50% of the population, then 40%.

    Whites would have to have a massive awakening of identity to turn this ship around. It won’t happen – well, I should say, it won’t happen in time, though I do believe that it will happen.

    Suburban White women are the key, and they are very influenced by the media. Take a guess what the media would do if the GOP pushed stopping immigration. Video after video of poor kids being turned away at the border. No chance.

    Unfortunately, things will have to get a lot worse for whites to wake up and by then, it’ll be too late.

    Alas, that’s just how it works. People seem hardwired to push things too far. Whites are no different. We’ve been on a 500-year winning streak. It’s made up cocky and arrogant – and, even worse, messianic in our believe that we can change the peoples of the world into our image.

    The numbers are pretty depressing. I’m beginning to see Trump’s 2016 win as Custer’s Last Stand. He didn’t even get the popular vote.

    Even with Trump’s win and Republicans in control of congress, they could do little to stop the major source of bleeding (legal immigration). And even if they could pass the RAISE Act it’s still not enough. A real change of course would require a revolutionary shift, not conventional Republicans winning elections.

    The only silver lining is that, among Whites, there’s a direct positive correlation between fertility and being politically on the right. Political ideology (or “social attitudes”) is about .50% heritable, so if this holds constant it will eventually lead to significant changes. (Someone who’s decent at math could figure out when and to what degree).

    Another interesting fact is that Asians are the group that has fluctuated the most, politically, in the last couple of decades. Swinging anywhere from Republican to left of Hispanics. I’m not sure how the recent influx of S. Asians has affected this. Regardless, I’m not too optimistic about Derbyshire’s ‘Ice People’ alliance.

  138. Well, I have two takeaways from this election…

    The Good: Trump demonstrated the media no longer has any significant power. I have never seen the US media try harder to destroy a candidate/president than they have Trump — Richard Nixon included, and Nixon actually did something wrong — and they failed. Utterly. It was always likely that the Dems would take the House and that Trump outperformed his predecessors on that score, while at the same time increasing the Republicans’ hold on the Senate is undeniably a big win for him. He’s demonstrated the media is powerless to stop or harm him. This is excellent news — the gelding of the Democratic Party’s Propaganda Machine was long overdue.

    The Bad and the Ugly: That something like Stacey Abrams could actually make the GEORGIA governor’s race competitive, is horrifying. The only equivalent as bad for the enemy would be if Brian Kemp ran against Gavin Newsom in California for the governorship and made that race competitive.

    Unfortunately, I find the bad & ugly take much more relevant than the good one — chiefly because, unlike Kristol, I’ve never doubted that demography was destiny.

    But does anyone here really believe Kristol ever doubted that in the first place?

    Which is also how Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, Woodrow Wilson, and FDR defined it…

    Trump’s blood-and-soil nationalism overturns the historical ideal of American nationalism, which was pluralistic — that we are united by creed, not blood;

    John Jay didn’t think so:

    With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people–a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.

    that our common culture is defined by a shared American dream

    Yeah, the “American Dream, an idea that goes all the way back to 1931…..which means that fellows like Andrew Jackson and Benjamin Franklin had to muddle their way through life without it….

    I believe that those people are now officially labeled “White racist scum”…

    immigrants crossing an ocean in search of opportunity, African-Americans rising from slavery toward equality.

    Uh-oh…..Failure to mention the Amerinds….Definite thoughtcrime…..

    The Republicans have flocked to Trump’s cramped nationalism and abandoned their creedal story. That’s left the Democrats with a remarkable opportunity. They could seize the traditional American national story, or expand it to gather in the unheard voices, while providing a coherent, unifying vehicle to celebrate the American dream.

    Case you haven’t noticed, Dave, the Dems do have a “unifying vehicle”: Hate YT. When it comes to bringing together Blacks, Latinx, and Muslims, it’s pretty effective….

    Here’s the central challenge of our age: Over the next few decades, America will become a majority-minority country. It is hard to think of other major nations, down through history, that have managed such a transition and still held together.

    In other words, it will become a majority POC country…..

    But if the Democrats are going to lead this transition, they’ll need not just a mind-set that celebrates diversity, but also a mind-set that creates unity. They’ll need policies that integrate different groups into a coherent nation, with shared projects, a common language and culture

    A common enemy usually works…..And the POC have agreed on the face of the enemy……

    To echo the point, there has never been a moment from 1972 to the present in which Dem-appointed justices have constituted a majority on the Supreme Court. Republican majorities over that period have frequently been large. The Roe vs Wade court was 6-3 Republican, for example. For four years, the court was 8-1 Republican. If you don’t like SCOTUS jurisprudence over the last 45 years, then blame the GOP. It’s their fault.

    I’m barely old enough to remember, but immigraton wasn’t as hot button then as the last 20 years. There was a little thing called the Cold War which occupied people’s minds.

    And although not the be-all end-all, his GDP numbers haven’t really been seen since.

    I believe the amnesty was his biggest regret. It doesn’t change what he did, but too bad no one else learned from it.

  153. @Citizen of a Silly Country

    You nailed it. A “soft landing,” i.e. turning into Brazil is the best case. Another good outcome would be the different factions (or “tribes” if you prefer) self-segregating into different regions, and with less and less in common in a sort of slow motion disengagement, eventually resulting in peaceful dissolution. Won’t happen within the lifetime of anyone reading this blog, but it’s a possibility.

    On the other hand, don’t underestimate the ruling elites’ willingness or even enthusiasm for showing the deplorables who’s boss. One party rule, sham elections, rampant corruption, and the use of violence to quash political opposition, all features of Latin American political life, are certainly possible, if not likely.

    Worst case scenario: we become a combination of Venezuela, Haiti, and Somalia writ large.

    One reason is he won 49 states. Also there were no significant conservative think-tanks until he got us a foothold.
    For a short time the new think-tanks helped. But their ideas were only feasible with the demographics of the day.
    Alas, the think-tanks degenerated down to “conservative, inc.” then have become “cuckservative, inc.” And RR got snookered into amnesty + enforcement-later.

    Reagan had a soft heart for the cliche “immigrant success story” mythology. We all did. I am also guilty. It was an emotional feel-good. An early version of virtue-signaling when a person cheered on that myth.
    That mythology was pumped up big time in 1976, Bicentennial and all. The Statue of Liberty was renovated, Lee Iococca raised the money. In hindsight we can see it was all part of a domestic Kalergi-style replacement plan.

    Yeah, I was pretty young at the time as well, far more concerned with baseball and girls. Anyway, good points. The U.S. was pretty White at the time, and, I suspect, that most people thought that Mexicans were the new Italians.

    It was his demeanor and their fond memories of him on TV.

    I doubt many people actually knew what his policies were. I constantly have to remind people that he started the free trade deals, his administration set the ground work for the guest worker visas, his administration spent like a drunken sailor, he brought in all those central American refugees (who never left) to save us from the commies, Iran Contra and on and on. Tell any of that to a Reagan fanboy and expect to be called a liar.

    As for the economy, then we were coming off a 16 year bear market. There was no place for the stock market to go but up. Jimmy Carter’s FED chief was the one who attacked the inflation. I think it was Murray Rothbard who commented that Carter was the most unlucky guy there was and Reagan the luckiest. You had the LBO craze and the S&L fiasco leading to the insolvency of a lot of big banks as well as the thrifts that artificially boosted things. However, the right people, made a lot of money and plenty of GOP pundits got rich writing Reagan hagiographies.

    About the only thing they remember is that he got shot and delivered a joke during a debate with Mondale. It is this bizarre selective amnesia that people have for people they liked personally.

    We all did.

    Not as many as you think. If you can dig up the old articles from the Center for Immigration Studies on the 1986 amnesty, it was no sure thing. It had been hanging around Congress in one form or another since Carter’s term. It breezed through the Senate but took a lot of coercion to get it past the House. I read that it was going nowhere and Simpson came up with the idea for triggers to get past House Republican reluctance. The Reagan administration nixed that idea. I also saw on Breitbart that Reagan wrote letters to the ranking Dems, thanking them for helping get that bill through.

    I will admit that only a few border states had the necessary knowledge so it was easier to bamboozle the public and there was no internet but a lot of House members knew that there would never be only one amnesty.

    Agreed, but within our lifetimes, here’s my best guess for what to expect:

    1. Much higher taxes/higher costs on Whites to pay for welfare and healthcare for browns
    2. Housing policies that put blacks and Hispanics in White neighborhoods. We’ll, of course, pay for them living in our neighborhoods
    3. Government-mandated quotas for blacks and browns in colleges and business
    4. Mandatory acknowledgement by Whites of their historical racism and current White privilege, i.e. public groveling. There will be periodic seminars in high school, college and business environments where Whites will need to state that their ancestors were racist and they now receive unearned benefits from that racism. (For anyone who thinks that this is crazy; it’s already happening. It’s also what is minting new White identity people.)

    I don’t believe that TPTB will allow us to separate ourselves from them. You could see the outlines forming under Obama.

    My suspicion – and I used to think that this type of thinking was silly – is that either things will get violent or Whites will fade away. Maybe not. I mean, look at California and Texas. (Actually, Whites are fading away in those states, come to think about it.)

    I will push – in my little ways – against this, but I would love to get my kids to emigrate. The question is where? I’d gladly give up any wealth that I have to buy their way into a country where Whites can live and be proud of their heritage. Poland and Hungary come to mind, but they are very different than the U.S., different enough that I don’t suspect that my kids would want to move there.

    “Women aren’t noticeably more pro-choice than men”

    So what? A majority of both genders support abortion, and up to 58% of women do. Dropping the endless anti-abortion rhetoric would go a long way towards getting some of those valuable votes, perhaps from both genders.

    “(it varies from poll to poll, and the differences are usually small and sometimes go the opposite way of what you want).”

    Again, so what? 1. these results are broadly true across a range of polls and, generally, support for abortion has increased since the 1970s – especially for women who believe it should be legal in all cases 2. it’s not the difference that matters but the absolute number of white females who support abortion, which usually exceeds 50% in nearly every modern poll sample.

    “Agreed, but within our lifetimes, here’s my best guess for what to expect.”

    Well, depending upon how old you are now:

    5. Revocation of speech rights by broadly defining “hate speech”. This will lead to mass censorship of the internet and social media. This already happens in Europe and South Africa. We will be no exception, but it will be even worse here.

    6. A continual climate of fear will be promoted within the population to keep people in line. At any moment, if you say the wrong thing in public, the media will come down hard on you in your own “get Becky” moment.

    7. China will roll up the Empire in Asia as minorities vote to end the military-industrial complex in favor of free goodies for themselves and as white males also check out. Also, sensing that the US is becoming unreliable and perhaps even unstable, Japan and Korea may seek to make peace with China while their negotiating position is still relatively strong. Japan may accomplish this by evicting US military bases. In fact, you already get the feeling that Russia and China are like vultures circling a dying animal below, waiting for the final breath before striking.

    8. More of the kinds of leftist extremism we saw under Obama, but taken to new heights.

    In fact, it has already started. Leftist radicals camped outside of Tucker Carlson’s house in the wake of last night’s election hoping, perhaps, to attack or harass him on camera; the election results encouraged their violence just as Obama’s re-election encouraged radicals and Mao’s pliant press encouraged the Red Guards. Expect more Red Guard mobs to attack dissenters, Confederate statues, symbols and grave sites. There may even be a move to destroy Mount Rushmore; Slate published an article with exactly that title back in 2017, so this is not as unlikely as you might think.

    9. Punctuated reversals in the decades long murder rate as a result of several BLM incidents.

    10. Extreme political correctness in Hollywood and in video games will increase. Expect race swaps of white characters like Superman and Batman – and the media will justify this. Video game companies will begin inserting political propaganda into their games. Soros-funded media outlets have been pressuring companies for years to include anti-Trump and anti-white male rhetoric into their products; they will eventually succeed.

    11. Increasing government mismanagement and corruption as the democratic check of the ballot box is removed; no more republicans = no more check on excess. The debt will soar and finances will weaken as a result.

    12. California’s model will not be the future of the country, common misconceptions notwithstanding. California will be the exception and not the rule. California 1. draws in talent from around the country, something that can’t be replicated everywhere for obvious reasons (finite talent pool) 2. has never had the black/white racial strife of some tenuously balanced Southern states 3. has great weather 4. currently has a wealthy tech industry that likely won’t be replicated in the same manner elsewhere 5. has state electoral politics that are stabilized by having the threat of the GOP boogeyman elsewhere in the country, so all groups (minorities and high-faulting whites like Gavin Newsome) come together to defeat them; remove that and then accelerate current demographic trends and California may be in trouble 20 years hence 6. is no exception to the rule that history has a way of surprising us.

    Just at Americans puzzled over why they couldn’t simply impose their model onto Iraq and recoiled in horror when it failed, intellectuals will be similarly shocked when their attempt to impose California onto Mississippi fails horribly. Turns out, the world is actually pretty complicated with lots of independent variables that when altered, even in the slightest, can change the result.

    13. Revocation of gun rights by banks denying service to gun shops and, perhaps, even owners themselves. Also, increased prohibitions on certain types of ammunition and its manufacture.

    14. Possibly a war with Russia as a desperate attempt to unify a fracturing country. Perhaps this kind of scenario explains the Fermi Paradox.

    15. Massive increases in legal and illegal immigration as the brakes are taken off the process. America may actually come to resemble a third world country in large areas over just a couple of decades. Some of this immigration may be from Africa to satisfy black demands of racial balance with Hispanics.

    16. The EU will exit alliances with the US as the United States becomes more hateful of native Europeans and white Europeans increasingly feel culturally detached from that country. The EU may form an alliance with China and Russia against the US as a means of containing a dangerous, out-of-control America. Europe will gnash its teeth at what could have happened to the US. Some right-wing parties will truthfully answer this question, leading to more right-wing parties rising up to oppose immigration. There could even be a couple of military coups in the titanic wake of the fall of the US from global preeminence.

    17. Risk of a large war in Europe will once again increase due to failing US-EU alliances.

    18. The minority-run US will be tempted to start lots of small wars on behalf of various demographic groups in the coalition of the ascendant. They won’t feel restrained because most of the fighting will be done by whites, for a time at least.

    19. Affirmative action requirements along with heavy Chinese competition may severely damage the US tech industry and California’s economy.

    20. An intrusive surveillance state will be built and maintained to uncover dissidents and ruin them. The NSA has already begun this process by hacking Skype and various Microsoft and Facebook applications to surreptitiously take pictures for later processing via AI facial recognition. If you’ve ever taken your cloths off in front of a computer application, someone may have dirt on you.

    21. Hollywood will eventually become a thing of the past as photorealistic CGI technologies allow small teams of computer engineers to make movies more realistic than even the best looking modern blockbusters, all without human actors – and relatively cheaply. This revolution will give China enormous global cultural influence while the US loses a lot of its cultural influence.

    22. The US will be further destabilized by Chinese immigration. By 2060, the US could be a vassal of China due to a powerful ethnic lobby modeled on US Jews from within the United States.

    23. Professional occupations like medicine and law will worsen in quality dramatically under Affirmative Action requirements.

    24. Whites will start to move to other countries – mainly Europe, Asia, and Canada.

    25. The democratic party will collapse into extreme incompetence and racism as its aged leaders retire or die and are replaced by fringe individuals.
