Of 895 slots in the freshman class of Stuyvesant High in New York City, seven were offered this year to black students, down from 10 last year and 13 the year before. In the freshman class of 803 at The Bronx High School of Science, 12 students are black, down from last year's 25. Of... Read More
Sen. Kamala Harris talks a lot about “our American values.” Ditto the rest of the female candidates who’ve declared for president in the busy Democratic field. They all lecture us about “values.” “Our American values are under attack,” Harris has tweeted. “Babies are being ripped from their parents at the border …” As her own... Read More
Going into the third year of President Trump’s presidency, it is necessary to draw a balance sheet on who is winning and/or losing. We will proceed by first analyzing domestic outcomes and then turn to foreign policy Power Bases of the Parties The Democrats secured a majority in Congress, but the Republican retained their majority...

Having embraced "Medicare-for-all," free college tuition and a Green New Deal that would mandate an early end of all oil, gas and coal-fired power plants, the Democratic Party's lurch to the left rolls on. Presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren both called last week for race-based reparations for slavery. "Centuries of slavery, Jim Crow,... Read More

Ever since Tulsi Gabbard announced that she will be running for President in 2020 her personality and candidacy have been a subject of heated debates and after I posted a rather small message from her, I have been getting panicked emails warning me that she is a fake and that I not should "jump on...

Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. But it is the Democratic Party that never ceases to celebrate diversity -- racial, religious, ethnic, cultural -- as its own and as America's "greatest strength." Understandably so, for the party is home to a multitude of minorities. It is the domain of the LGBTQ movement. In... Read More
America Is Ready for a Genuine Peace Candidate
https://www.strategic-culture.org/images/news/2019/02/14/or-42231.jpg The lineup of Democrats who have already declared themselves as candidates for their party’s presidential nomination in 2020 is remarkable, if only for the fact that so many wannabes have thrown their hats in the ring so early in the process. In terms of electability, however, one might well call the seekers after the... Read More
After reading an especially radical platform agreed upon by the British Labor Party, one Tory wag described it as "the longest suicide note in history." The phrase comes to mind on reading of the resolution calling for a Green New Deal, advanced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and endorsed by at least five of the major Democratic... Read More
If the pollsters at CNN and CBS are correct, Donald Trump may have found the formula for winning a second term in 2020. His State of the Union address, say the two networks, met with the approval of 76 percent of all viewers -- 97 percent of Republicans, 82 percent of independents and 30 percent... Read More
  Donald Trump has three weeks to save his presidency. Maybe he will. The President announced on Friday he had agreed to a short-term spending bill that will re-open the government for three weeks, until February 15. The bill didn’t include any money for the wall. In his speech, Trump stressed why America needs a... Read More
If it was the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that black and white would come together in friendship and peace to do justice, his acolytes in today's Democratic Party appear to have missed that part of his message. Here is Hakeem Jeffries, fourth-ranked Democrat in Nancy Pelosi's House, speaking Monday, on the holiday... Read More
It’s the best of times and the worst of times judging from President Donald Trump’s tweets about the ongoing government shutdown. “No Cave!” he vows in a tweet at 6:48 AM Tuesday morning, declaring the wall is desperately needed for border security, as well as to combat the drug problem. Yet on Monday morning, Trump... Read More

The Roman poet Ovid’s masterful epic The Metamorphoses includes the memorable opening line regarding the poem’s central theme of transformation. He wrote In nova fert animus mutatas dicere formas corpora, which has been translated as “Of shapes transformed to bodies strange, I purpose to entreat…” Ovid framed his narrative around gods, heroes and quasi-historical events...

Speaker Nancy Pelosi's House has more women, persons of color and LGBT members than any House in history -- and fewer white males. And Thursday, the day Rashida Tlaib was sworn in, her hand on a Quran, our first Palestinian-American congresswoman showed us what we may expect. As a rally of leftists lustily cheered her...

It should have been done sooner, but President Donald Trump is finally taking the fight to the Democrats on the critical issue of immigration. He will be visiting the southern border on Thursday [Trump to travel to Southern border Thursday, as shutdown standoff intensifies, by Brooke Singman, Fox News, January 7, 2018]. And he is...

The Watcher wrote a few days before the partial government shutdown that it appeared President Trump would capitulate to his enemies and pass on a fight over the wall. I was fortunately proved wrong.

If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable. Their victory on Nov. 6, adding 40 seats and taking control of the House of Representatives, was impressive. And with the party's total vote far exceeding the GOP total, in places it became a rout. In the six New England states, Republicans no longer hold... Read More
Ten years earlier, by Steve Sailer: Grand New Party Recycles Old (But Good!) VDARE.COM Ideas If America were still a nation-state, Reihan Salam’s new book, Melting Pot Or Civil War, might be a valuable contribution to the immigration debate. Unfortunately, there’s a contradiction at its heart: the Civil War is already here—and the anti-white Left... Read More

That’s the law. Nothing can be done about it. And that’s the liberal reaction to any rational action to stop the stampede of uneducated, unruly, fractious, antagonistic masses toward and over the U.S. southern border. Liberals call law-enforcement unlawful. Or, they shoehorn the act of holding the line into the unlawful category. Prevent uninvited masses... Read More

The Trump Administration, and before that his Presidential campaign, have been a long succession of crises, but the most serious crisis has now arrived: Trump appears listless and besieged and his enemies now control the House of Representatives, including its formidable investigatory power.

After adding at least 37 seats and taking control of the House by running on change, congressional Democrats appear to be about to elect as their future leaders three of the oldest faces in the party. Nancy Pelosi of California and Steny Hoyer of Maryland have led the House Democrats for 16 years. For 12... Read More
The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish.

The Democratic Party has won control of the House of Representatives. Its members effectively will be able to block all legislation that the Senate passes and the president wants. They also will be able to unleash their subpoena power mercilessly on the executive branch. Will the members of the new majority view their victory primarily... Read More
Did former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg just take a page out of the playbook of Sen. Ed Muskie from half a century ago? In his first off-year election in 1970, President Richard Nixon ran a tough attack campaign to hold the 52 House seats the GOP had added in '66 and '68, and to... Read More

America is so divided, even the political clichés don’t work anymore. In professional wrestling, it’s called a “cheap pop”—an unnecessary reference to the home town designed to get the audience to give an automatic cheer. Politicians do the same by praising the history of whatever state or community they are in. But in post-America, the... Read More

Throughout Brett Kavanaugh’s ordeal, Democratic women and their house-trained houseboys had attempted to derail the decent part of the process, rendering a U.S. Senate Supreme Court confirmation hearing a small-minded, mean-spirited, undignified and gossipy affair. In tenor, the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing resembled a tabloid, a woman’s magazine, or the female-dominated, Trump-watch panels, assembled daily by... Read More
The hysteria provoked by Donald Trump’s appointment of Brett Kavanaugh as an associate Justice of the Supreme Court may well be unprecedented in US history. Never before has a president’s judicial nomination been met with such an overwhelmingly emotional reaction. And it’s not in the least bit surprising, either. Females(especially when rejected), minorities and homosexuals—the... Read More

Since the late fall of 2016, Democrats and other Leftist types have been decrying President Donald J. Trump as “not normal” and a “threat to democracy.” Of course, this is hogwash of the most rank sort. The same people lambasting Trump for his supposed “authoritarianism” are the same people who have created the modern American... Read More
"If anyone is looking for a good lawyer," said President Donald Trump ruefully, "I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen." Michael Cohen is no Roy Cohn. Tuesday, Trump's ex-lawyer, staring at five years in prison, pled guilty to a campaign violation that may not even be a crime. Cohen... Read More
Andrew Cuomo, Governor of my home state of New York, was speaking in Manhattan on Wednesday, signing a bill to make sex trafficking a felony in the state.

If America had more honest, fact-based journalists with integrity like Tucker Carlson, we would not be, as we are today, dissolving as a country. In this one TV broadcast Carlson shows that the Democrats have gone far beyond “lying through their teeth political partisanship” into deranged hatred of President Trump and the American people who...

For Nancy Pelosi, 78, Steny Hoyer, 79, and Joe Biden, 75, the primary results from New York's 14th congressional district are a fire bell in the night. All may be swept away in the coming revolution. That is the message of the crushing defeat of 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley, who had aspired to succeed Pelosi... Read More

NY-14 Winner Ocasio-Cortez No Fluke--The Democratic Party IS Tipping!
The idea that demography is political destiny is not new. Peter Brimelow and Edwin Rubenstein warned of its dangers in the pages of National Review in the 1990s. Steve Sailer later argued that Republicans would fare better by targeting white voters. The problem with these observations was not their accuracy, but their audience. The GOP... Read More

The Democratic Party has made a strategic decision to bypass candidates from its progressive wing and recruit former members of the military and intelligence agencies to compete with Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. The shift away from liberal politicians to center-right government agents and military personnel is part of a broader plan to rebuild... Read More

So the global capitalist ruling classes’ War on Dissent is now in full swing.

The Democrats have decided to double-down on a political strategy that has divided the country, undermined confidence in public elections, alienated their progressive base and increased the chances of a violent clash with Russia. On Friday, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) filed a lawsuit charging the Russian government, the Trump campaign and Julian Assange of... Read More
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

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

The Democrats don't seem to understand that the Russia investigation has made Trump stronger not weaker. They don't see that their evidence-free probe has strengthened Trump's base and convinced his supporters that their leader is being unfairly attacked. (According to a January Quinnipiac survey, a full eighty-three percent of Republicans believe the current investigation is... Read More

The headline news that Keith Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has come out via his Twitter account with what appears to be an off-hand endorsement of the domestic terrorist group, Antifa, has made some waves and raised a few eyebrows. Here is what The New York Post [January 3] reported:... Read More
Do we need a third major political party? I often joke that I’d be happy if we actually had a second party, as when it comes to the big issues – war, monetary policy, civil liberties – the Republicans and Democrats are more alike than different. Perhaps that’s why a recent NBC News poll has... Read More

The path forward for the Democrats is clear. They need to accept responsibility for their humiliating defeat to Donald Trump and move on. That means they need to stop passing the buck and make a solid effort to reconnect with the millions of disillusioned ex-Dems in the center of the country who either didn’t vote,... Read More
Introduction After 6 months of blaming Russia for the Democratic Party’s Presidential election debacle, the Party stalwarts have finally realized that the American electorate is not listening. Democratic Party investigators in Washington still hold hearings and the mass media are still scandal mongering, but the public is not rallying to their cause. Trump’s demagogy may... Read More

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in the middle of a new scandal
There has been surprisingly little media follow-up on the story about the July 25th Dulles Airport arrest of House of Representatives’ employed Pakistani-American IT specialist Imran Awan, who was detained for bank fraud while he was allegedly fleeing to Pakistan. The mainstream media somewhat predictably produced minimal press coverage before the story died. The speed... Read More

Barack Obama campaigned for the presidency in 2008 as a peace candidate. He signaled that he would fundamentally change America’s course after the reckless carnage unleashed by the George W. Bush administration. However, by the end of Obama’s presidency, the United States was bombing seven different foreign nations. But Obama’s warring rarely evoked the protests... Read More

Introduction Over the past quarter century progressive writers, activists and academics have followed a trajectory from left to right – with each presidential campaign seeming to move them further to the right. Beginning in the 1990’s progressives mobilized millions in opposition to wars, voicing demands for the transformation of the US’s corporate for-profit medical system... Read More
In the first round of the special election for the House seat in Georgia's Sixth District, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff swept 48 percent. He more than doubled the vote of his closest GOP rival, Karen Handel. A Peach State pickup for the Democrats and a huge humiliation for President Trump seemed at hand. But in Tuesday's... Read More
