Earlier: Immigration, Not White Suburbs, Turning VA Blue. GOP Still Can Win With Sailer Strategy—But Ultimately Needs An Immigration Moratorium

We had elections this week for various kinds of state and local positions. The results were mixed, pluses and minuses, but it looked to me like mostly minuses. On the plus side:

  • voters in Washington State rejected a measure to legalize Affirmative Action.

Specifically, a yes vote would:

allow Affirmative Action policies by the state of Washington in the areas of public education, public employment, and public contracting as long as such policies do not constitute preferential treatment (as defined) and do not use quotas.

Washington Referendum 88, Vote on I-1000 Affirmative Action Measure (2019)C

Of course the entire point of Affirmative Action is to give preferential treatment to favored groups, and quotas are the only way you can do so without risking legal trouble. Everybody understands this, but everyone has to pretend not to. Thanks to the voters of Washington State—well, 52 percent of them—for giving a good kick in the shins to the whole dishonest sham.

  • Voters in Tucson, Arizona voted down an Initiative that would have made Tucson a “Sanctuary City”—or Treason Town, as VDARE.com prefers to call them.

This initiative was in reaction to the famous law passed in 2010 by the state legislature, and signed by then-governor Jan Brewer, right, giving state law enforcement powers to help enforce federal immigration laws. Kritarchs of course struck down most of the law, but left it OK for officers to check a suspect’s immigration status. The idea of the Initiative: to kill that last surviving portion of the 2010 law—to finish the job the kritarchs left un-finished. Instead, voters killed the initiative, leaving the law standing.

This wasn’t a 50-50 decision either; more than 70 percent of Tucson voters said no to the sanctuary city idea. [Tucson voters soundly reject ‘sanctuary city’ initiative, KGUN, November 6, 2019]

Well done, Tucson! Sanctuary much!

  • Texans voted by nearly 75 percent to 25 for an amendment raising that simple majority of legislators to two-thirds, while still requiring also a majority of voters.

Texas is one of just seven states without a personal income tax. (Pop quiz: How many of the other six can you name?) The Texas state constitution says there can only be a state income tax if it’s approved by a majority of legislators and a majority of voters in referendum. So with the state constitution thus amended, now it’s even harder than it was before to get an income tax passed in Texas.

But nationwide most of the news was bad for President Trump and his party.

  • In Virginia, Democrats now control both houses of the state legislature for the first time in 26 years.
  • Republican losses in Pennsylvania inspired the Philadelphia Inquirer report to descriptives like “blue wave” and “catastrophic.” [The blue wave crashed down on Pennsylvania again, as voters from Philly to Delaware County turned left, by Julia Terruso, November 6, 2019]
  • The GOP candidate for governor of Kentucky lost, in spite of Trump having staged a big rally in his support on Monday night. He only lost by a whisker — less than half of one percent — but still … Kentucky!

There’s a pattern though, if you look for it. So at any rate says Daniel Horowitz over at Conservative Review. I’ll let him explain:

On critical issues, especially on issues like immigration and crime, Republicans are not as emphatically to the right as Democrats are to the left …

How else do you explain, on the one hand, Republican issues winning overwhelmingly in urban and very Hispanic Tucson, but on the other hand, GOP candidates losing tremendous ground in suburbs, even in red states like Mississippi?…

Voters in no way support the extreme agenda of the Democratic Party, certainly not those living in suburban neighborhoods in the south. But the Republican Party is a terrible vehicle for promoting a bold contrast.

Tucson voters DEFEAT sanctuary initiative with over 70% of the vote, November 6, 2019

I’d chop that last sentence down from eleven words to five: “The Republican Party is terrible.”

I think Daniel Horowitz has caught on to an important truth there. As the great political analyst Osama bin Laden once said: “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.”

The Democratic Party is the strong horse here. Their ideas are wrong-headed, frequently crazy, but they pursue political victory with vigor and conviction.

The Republicans are the weak horse. They have much more sensible ideas, but they are hobbled by their globalist business donors, and they half-believe the cant out of media and the academy that national sovereignty, demographic stability, and realism about sex and race are immoral.

Democrats are bold and loud, Republicans are timid and apologetic. Strong horse, weak horse.

    But as I understand it this is just the culmination of a trend that started in 2009, which marked the last time a Republican won a statewide office. This is due mostly to the demographic changes wrought by immigration and not because suburban soccer moms and their pajama boy hubbies think Trump is a poopy face.

    The GOP candidate for governor of Kentucky lost, in spite of Trump having staged a big rally in his support on Monday night. He only lost by a whisker

    But Bevin was down 17 points and the Trump rally brought him to within a few thousand votes. Bevin was an outlier anyway as Kentucky seems to elect Democrat governors more than Republican governors. Republican won five out of the six statewide elections.

    If Beshear survives Bevin’s recount challenge then of the last six governors four have been Democrat, so it’s not like the election of a Democrat governor in KY is a watershed moment in American politics.

    Democrats are bold and loud, Republicans are timid and apologetic. Strong horse, weak horse.

    Hard to argue with that. Democrats are confident, aggressive and always on the offensive. Republicans are cowardly and always on the defensive and cucking. They don’t inspire confidence. Even Trump is turning into a Jeb Bush type centrist on a range of policies in contrast to his 2016 campaign.

    I couldn’t agree more. If the results aren’t struck down as “unconstitutional” by an ultra left wing kritarch then they’ll be forced to vote again and if that doesn’t work they’ll resort to ballot harvesting until they get the outcome they want.

    Or kritarchs will keep ordering recounts and similar to the Al Franken Senate election they’ll mysteriously keep finding more votes in support of affirmative action with each recount.

    But as a last ditch effort a kritarch might just spare Washington voters all the drama and impose AA from on high.

  8. The timidity of the Republican Party is easy to understand: They are the White Party; and White People are Bad.

    Everyone who watches TV and goes to the movies knows that. And it’s in the news, too. I know this. I was in the Atlanta airport, and there was this serious looking guy on the TV talking about impeachment, and crimes, and white supremacy! The banner under his face said so too!

    But seriously, as John has said many times, you can’t get elected dog catcher in this country if you so much as imply that White People are not terrible. Look at what happened to Representative King from Iowa when he on a couple of occasions implied as much. Remember, he didn’t say anything about negative about non-whites or use racial slurs; he just said, “It’s O.K. to be white” in not quite so few words. Tactical nuclear weapons went off in the media, and nobody came to his defense. Nobody.

    When this is the paradigm in which the discussion takes place, you’ll never get out of the starting blocks.

    So, don’t eat the toxic shit in the first place.

    Brainwashing and ‘white guilt’ are strong in the urban areas of the west coast. Marxism is being actively taught in Washington, Oregon and certainly California, and that has an effect that’s amplified over time (with successive generations) basically changing political theories into articles of faith. That’s an affirmative agenda. What have the Republicans got, besides being and acting old?

  11. @buckwheat

    Correct; look at Pussy Romney who couldn’t tell the rude moderator to shut up or McCain, the alleged hero, who refused to criticize Obama but each of whom had no trouble downing Trump. Which Republicans fought and argued? Nixon, Reagan and Trump. And what do we call that kind of Republican?

    He’d need to have guts first to instill it in others. Why are we pretending that trump has made a sincere effort to protect us, our culture, and our interests? Because it’s too depressing and frightening to acknowledge that we have no defender “up there”?

    First and best example because it required nothing from congress: he promised an executive order pealing birthright citizenship. Could and should have issued it and fight it out in the courts. Keep his promise and put the immivasion side on the defensive. He didn’t.

    Anything that Obama imposed by executive order could and should have been reversed by another executive order. Where are the MAJOR executive orders on border security and immigration?

    Trump easily could have told the scumbag disloyal deracinated republicans in Congress that their rich donors, corporate and individual, don’t get their income tax cuts until and unless Congress funds and builds the entire border wall AND funds and implements relentless daily raids of ag and construction worksites to round up illegal aliens. Not just funded but DONE, or no tax cuts for the rich.

    For that matter, trump’s bill made corporate tax cuts permanent but family/individual tax cuts (you know, direct tax cuts for actual human beings) temporary. My family’s small tax cut sunsets in 2025 or so, while corporate tax rates will stay cut. And farmers, ranchers, and construction/renovation companies will keep employing illegal aliens instead of US citizens without paying a real price. And third world people who often have little knowledge of English, few marketable skills in an automating economy, and unduly dissimilar culture, keep streaming across the border en masse every month — guaranteed to end up chronically unemployed and leeching off us taxpayers (as well as changing our culture further and adding to the massive anti-white voting bloc).

    Yeah, trump should instill guts in others. Give me a break already.

    TPTB will force the electorate to vote again and again and again until they get the result they want, which is why the country must split (or the left be extirpated) if there is to exist the possibility of continued representative government in North America.

  18. It is probably best to work within the party to strengthen it rather than to attack from outside. In a nearby mayoral election, an old-timer ran independently as the true, conservative candidate, on a platform of preservation. He took just enough votes from the Republican to throw the election to the Progressive Democrat, thus perhaps opening the town up to all kinds of the same crap we all complain about here. Nice going, pal!

    Well, part of the reason is that no open discussion about anything the System cares about is ever allowed in this country. No one is allowed to tell the simple truth that black low performance is mostly caused by their lower overall I.Q.s, instead we must maintain the fiction that it stems from external sources. You can also bet that the pro vote weighs heavily toward the top of the white economic scale. These people don’t think blacks and Central Americans will ever compete with their children. The whole anti-white agenda only works because the wealthy have been allowed to opt out of it in various ways. Opposition by the wealthy and upper middle class is far more formidable than that of the polloi. Look how successful they’ve been at blocking housing developments because of “environmental reasons.” (A lot of others are childless as well.) That’s why I support the attempts by far leftists like De Blasio to integrate NYC schools. Let’s outlaw all private schools and ship the children of the upper middle class to Martin Luther King High.

  20. The problem with the modern GOP is that it is currently being gate-kept by Zionists and their aging Neo-cons. If anyone is paying attention to the recent event brigading by Nick Fuentes of America First against Turning Point USA and the Daily Wire, it is clear that the next generation of Conservatives are tired of the Neo-Establishment GOP candidates like Dan Crenshaw that are just doing Leftism at a much slower speed. These Establishment candidates are allowing the Overton Windows to move more and more to the left because it benefits their masters who love both wars for Israel AND low taxes. they embrcae the LGBT community as well as mass legal immigration. The new young opposition is pushing back against the embrace of degeneracy by Hollywood Tech as well as endless wars and Free Market abuse. And for their trouble they are being labeled as Nazis (the same label the left uses against them) and kicked out of society in more ways than one. and you wonder why there are no candidates on the right that connect with voters, in spite of the issues at hand? The Modern Neo-Con movement needs to die out (and that sadly includes MAGA). The only way we are going to get back a healthy opposition if to redefine the party back to policies that are actual Pro-America.

    I totally get your point, but in the real world the upper middle class will just flee out of reach of de-segregation, as far as they need to go (including out of the state if needed).

    De Blasio knows this, of course, so his actions are best seen as cynical virtue signaling.

    Prior to the election Dems spread the meme that Trump would be a dictator when elected. Now that he is in office, some anti Dem types object to the fact that under our system, the President isn’t a dictator.

    DACA has been litigated ever since Trump tried to nullify it. Likewise birthright citizenship is based on a court case a century more ago, and either needs to be re-litigated or Congressionally changed. It was based on a judicial interpretation of the Constitution.

    Trump is far from perfect, but he has largely remade the old GOP. Bush, Romney, et. al. are forgotten men. Sure few Republicans have the courage or standing to speak out like Trump. His personality is part of his shtick but that seldom works in lesser offices. No one reads tweets from Congressman X.

    The Dems control the House and many Senate Republicans are weak sisters at best. Trump is one man, not the entire GOP. So instead of verbally shooting your friends in the back, to “prove” your manliness, try to remain rational and patient. There are plenty of evil politicos out there; Trump isn’t one.

    “These people don’t think blacks and Central Americans will ever compete with their children.”

    No, it’s worse than that. They get the benefit of appearing to support AAs and Hispanics, and the toll is paid not by their own children but by the strivers of the white working class. Affirmative Action hobbles the marginal whites (and now Asians) in the middle for the benefit of the Talented Tenth, who in return don’t rock the boat.

    Reparations would in this view be much fairer. The price for reparations would fall most heavily on the wealthy, which includes all those white upper middle class people currently benefiting from affirmative action through suppression of their white and Asian competition, and the benefits would fall not just on the talented tenth but all African Americans.

    Reparations paired with the end of Affirmative Action would do a lot to equalize things amongst working class and managerial elite whites.

    Here are the detailed stats:

    Wellesley’s blacks are isolated and as geographically far from Wellesley town center and Wellesley College as possible. Their public housing development backs up to 128 and a couple of commercial property centers (one separated with a fence). Check out the satellite view: 109 Barton Rd, Wellesley, MA 02481. Btw, that satellite view makes them look well maintained and clean. Here’s a ground view:

    Some of those stats are deceptive. Both Lowell and Lexington have ~20% Asian but Lowell has 85 IQ Cambodians and Lexington has 125 IQ Koreans and Chinese.

    Bevin imported four Ethiopian tarbabies to expand his family. This guy was a degenerate cuck. Also, the libertarians pulled many votes from Bevin. This is not a huge loss. The GOP can come back. The GOP needs to get rid of the black GOP attorney general Cameron.

    The GOP is lucky the “leader” of the opposing party is deeply senile–check out the latest Biden campaign appearance:

    If it was one of your family members you would put them in a nursing home for their own protection.

    Not too surprising; Lexington is a bedroom suburb while Lowell is more industrial. At least that’s how it was when I lived in Mass., some 50 years ago.

    Looking at the map and chart that Justvisiting linked to, I was struck by Lawrence. How did it get to be nearly 3/4 Hispanic, when only one other city or town (Chelsea, adjacent to Boston) is over 50% and the vast majority are in single digits?

    Not sure how to explain this phenomenon, in either state

    Probably because Romney and Weld were liberal Republicans and Beshear is a moderate Democrat who as far as I can tell didn’t run against Trump. A woke Democrat in Kentucky would have stood little chance of winning.

    An obstacle to weak-horse (i.e., decent/proficient horse) secession is the social security pension. Jack Cashill is the author of the definitive book on the cover-up of the Flight 800 missile strike. He was once asked how was it that hundreds of agents went along with the cover up. He said it was probably not wanting to put their pensions at risk. Republicans fleeing to a secession state would have to be willing to abandon the social security payments that they made over the years. And possibly other benefits.

    Matt Bevin Bonus: Abortion is banned so each refugee family can have eight children instead of four.

    But, but, but … ! Democrats want to keep abortion legal, so aut0-reply cucks want to end it! If they’re successful, they’ll be looking at 3x the number of anchor babies and welfare magnet kids, but the cucks will preen themselves on their virtue signaling.

    The republican candidate should have stood down and endorsed this man. Why is the independent to blame and not the republican?

  62. @attilathehen

    Didn’t know that about Bevin. Sickening and suicidal. Glad he lost.

    Ann Coulter’s current column about Weather Underground bomb-throwers finding cushy jobs in later life reminds us of the enormous gulf in social acceptability between fringe left and fringe right. The right desperately needs active fringe elements to provide a center of gravity for the national debate. Instead of making attacks on the fringe right their favorite form of virtue-signaling, mainstream conservatives should try to defend their rights and interfere with their ‘un-personing.’ But the chance of this happening is zero, because the mainstream right are on the payroll of the same people who fund the mainstream left.

    The right should either demand fair treatment for its extremists or demand that ex-revolutionaries on the left pay a price for their youthful support of our enemies, not to mention a fair number of lethal bombings and gun battles. What is a former “Defense Minister” for the revolutionary Black Panther Party doing in congress? What is a man who planned to explode a nail-bomb at a Navy dance doing teaching at a publicly supported university? Or a convicted cop-killer teaching at a respected private college?

    Where are the Republicans who should have been making a fuss about this all these years? Either they don’t care or they are afraid of the left. It’s up to the conservative rank-and-file to publicize these cases and demand action from self-styled conservative politicians.
