Billionaire businessman Marc Cuban insists that the H-1B visa racket is a feature of the vaunted American free market. This is nonsense on stilts. It can't go unchallenged. Another billionaire, our president, has ordered that the H-1B program be reformed. This, too, is disappointing. You'll see why. First, let's correct Mr. Cuban: America has not... Read More
Eye-opener of the week for me: A Center For Immigration Studies talk I attended in New York City, given by political scientist Hans von Spakovsky. Title: “How noncitizen voting threatens our democracy.” Von Spakovsky [Tweet him] toils in the vineyards of what we on the Dissident Right refer to dismissively as “Conservatism, Inc.” He held...

I can’t think of any way to put a smiley face on it: This was a really bad week for National Conservatives. There was always the possibility that Trump would cuck on us. VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow mentioned that in his speech to the American Renaissance conference last May: Well, the second question: can he... Read More
Who would have imagined that the once great German nation would be ruled by Washington? It is extraordinary, but that is what has happened. Merkel, Washington’s whore, has agreed to fill up Germany with the refugees from Washington’s 16 years of illegal wars against Muslims in North Africa and the Middle East. These are wars... Read More
On Radio Derb recently I have been promoting a theme of “academic nationalism.” Higher education, I have argued, is a precious resource; and our own citizens should have first call on it. As I observed in the February 17th podcast: It’s not as if the universities who admit all these foreign students are doing it... Read More
It’s early days yet in the Trump presidency, but there’s a general feeling it’s not going very well. Except, of course, for the work of our splendid Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Even partisan types are generally willing to cut a new president some slack—the so-called “honeymoon.” Nope: Ten weeks in, Trump is graded F by... Read More

The modern purpose of journalism is to police the Narrative. In a society where power is defined by who controls access to mass media (what Steve Sailer terms The Megaphone), journalists serve the same role and fulfill the same purpose as commissars did under the Soviet system that so many of them eagerly defended in...

Hester Street Market, New York City\
Our country and its Jewish intelligentsia are currently torn by a debate about immigration. On one side the Trump administration is trying to pass executive orders limiting immigration from particular, though certainly not all, Muslim-majority countries while also deporting people — largely from Mexico or Central America — who are in the US illegally. On... Read More

The Japanese Were Right. The British Were Wrong.
This week our subject is “Life in Derbistan” or London as it used to be. I’m going to indulge myself in some nostalgia. It’s geezerish, I know. But reading about the terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge this Wednesday got me thinking about London, and I began to nostalge. (Is that a verb, “nostalge”? “I... Read More

Introduction: The cross border flood of millions of immigrants provokes profound political divisions, violence and the rise of mass movements challenging the unity of the European Union (EU) and the survival of the dominant political parties in the US and Europe. Both the progressive pro-immigrant and rightwing anti-immigration parties and movements propose easy answers and... Read More
Another week, another Executive Order on immigration, another effort by judges to block it. Like a great many of our other problems, this one is a result of gross stupidity on the part of our federal government in the recent past. Here I get to repeat one of my favorite apothegms: The most astonishing statistic... Read More
Rep. Steve King walked back his remarks with ease. King had told Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson that "we can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies." The Republican congressman quickly reframed the comments. It was not race he was alluding to, but "our stock, our country, our culture, our civilization." Those sound like proxies... Read More

Following Mr. Trump’s kaleidosopically shifting policies isn’t easy. He was going to declare China a currency manipulator on day one, but didn’t, going to impose a forty-five percent tariff on Chinese goods but apparently won’t, was going to shift the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem but isn’t, going to tear up the Iran treaty...

Alt-Right Leader Richard Spencer
Even in today’s acrimonious political landscape, nothing seems to draw as much vitriol as the minuscule “Alt-Right” (shorthand for an alternative to mainstream Conservatism Inc.). Indeed, if America’s political class organized 1984-style two-minute hates, the Alt-Right would be the star of the show with Richard Spencer substituting for Emmanuel Goldstein. Given this aversion across the... Read More

There were a few tense hours before President Trump's First Address to Congress. All news outlets were claiming the president would call for an immigration bill in which both sides would be asked to compromise. Was this Fake News? Or, was the president sending up a trial balloon to test the reaction? Was Donald Trump,... Read More

The Fake News story of the week also offered insights into just how insulated from reality our Goodwhites are. It started with President Trump telling a rally in Florida last Saturday that: You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden! —Who would believe this? Sweden! They... Read More

One usually doesn’t think of fashion models as skilled workers. President Donald Trump, married to a former fashion model, would beg to differ. And a good test of his commitment to patriotic immigration reform will be his willingness to persuade Congress to repeal legislation enabling foreign models to work here. That law is a part...

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times for nationalism in Europe. Patriot parties are leading the polls in major European countries, though this mass support doesn’t prevent them from invariably being described as “Far Right” by the Main Stream Media. But it’s unclear if any of these parties have a... Read More

Talk about fake news: before our very eyes, the Main Stream Media is attempting to disappear Sweden’s Muslim rape crisis after President Trump alluded to it in his Florida rally on Friday e.g. From an Anchor’s Lips to Trump’s Ears to Sweden’s Disbelief . [By Peter Baker And Sewell Chan, NYT, February 20, 2017] Trump... Read More
I’ve met more than my share of famous people, just because I’ve lived mostly in big metropolises and hung around with journalists a lot. Among those encounters: one with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, back in 1984. I wrote up an account in a column back in 2003. Well, His Holiness is still among us... Read More
“More than 100 companies, including most of high-tech’s biggest names,” have threatened to “move jobs outside the United States,” unless they get their way. What do they want? They want President Trump to give up on “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” the POTUS’s Executive Order, currently being refined to... Read More
Read the judicial rules for radicals issued by the United States Court Of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in affirmation of the ban on The Ban.

How might a future historian view the massive protests of President Trump’s temporary travel ban? Given that I have yet to see a sign disputing the President’s legal authority, I can only assume that these demonstrations are entirely about President Trump’s refusal to make America more Islamic. At least in the minds of these demonstrators,... Read More
[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively on VDARE.com. See also Peter Brimelow On Judicial Imperialism In FORBES…THIRTY YEARS AGO!] Especially with the mugging of Trump Administration’s immigration patriot Executive Order by the Left Coast’s No-Good Ninth Circuit, the spotlight this week has been on the third branch of the federal government: the...

I live a block from the Italian Market, see, and its ecology is more complex than anything I could ever aspire to describe, but better something than nothing, so let me give you a little tour of the Eyetalian Market.

This past weekend, we all saw massive public outrage in major cities throughout the country. It was directed at the Jan. 27 issuance of an executive order, signed by President Donald Trump, addressing immigration. With the executive order, the president ordered the suspension of entry of all refugees to the United States for 120 days,... Read More
Collective mass insanity. From a reader, edited for anonymity: After witnessing the Left’s response to Trump’s “Muslim Ban” I can only refer to one of your early diaries in which you said that “we are passing through a temporary period of collective mass insanity.” I still remember the pre-2001 America. Muslims were not any sort... Read More
That hysterical reaction to the travel ban announced Friday is a portent of what is to come if President Donald Trump carries out the mandate given to him by those who elected him. The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on... Read More
The mindlessness is unbearable. Amnesty International tells us that we must “fight the Muslim ban” because Trump’s bigotry is wrecking lives. Anthony Dimaggio at CounterPunch says Trump should be impeached because his Islamophobia is a threat to the Constitution. This is not to single out these two as the mindlessness is everywhere among those whose... Read More
Just one week in office, President Trump is already following through on his pledge to address illegal immigration. His January 25th executive order called for the construction of a wall along the entire length of the US-Mexico border. While he is right to focus on the issue, there are several reasons why his proposed solution... Read More

VDARE.com reader “Virginia Paleoconservative” writes: In today [January 29]’s Washington Post, the Sunday hard copy edition, the main “A” Section is almost totally devoted to critical or even semi-hysterical articles about President Trump’s immigration executive order. Therefore, per the emphasis in WaPo, this topic is more important than virtually every other area of news that... Read More
Some immigration patriots were disappointed with President Trump’s first day. (Mind if I just pause here and say “President Trump” a couple of times? I just like saying it. President Trump, President Trump! Thank you.) But as his first week closes, he’s made a flurry of announcements and it looks as though we shall get... Read More
Democrats Abroad at Johann Strauss memorial not in tune with Trump
A demonstrator singing Bob Dylan’s “times they are a changing” was warming up the crowd when I arrived at Vienna’s Stadtpark with an invitation from Democrats Abroad to protest against the new US president. One of the few reminders that I was not back on campus in the late 60s was the Johann Strauss statue... Read More
"Something there is that doesn't love a wall," wrote poet Robert Frost in the opening line of "Mending Walls." And on the American left there is something like revulsion at the idea of the "beautiful wall" President Trump intends to build along the 1,900-mile border between the U.S. and Mexico. The opposition's arguments are usually... Read More

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition. As we are defined as racists based on our skin color, I am puzzled why we are called racists a second, third, and fourth time due to specific acts, such as favoring the enforcement of immigration laws....

The Main Stream Media predicts Donald J. Trump will appeal for “national unity” in his Inaugural Address this Friday, but they’ve been mistaken before. One way he could wrong-foot the Narrative: by announcing an immediate pause in “refugee” admissions, currently surging, to be followed by a zero quota for the next fiscal year—something that, by...

Intelligence is worth talking about because both the reality of intelligence and perceptions regarding intelligence set limits on the possible and influence policy. For example, if the population of India on average really is below borderline retardation, the country can never amount to anything. If Latino immigrants really are as stupid as white nationalists hope,... Read More
Make It A Refugee Dump!
Last week, a Puerto Rican with mental problems shot up the Baggage Claim area at Fort Lauderdale airport, killing five people and wounding eight others. You know Puerto Rico. That’s our big colony in the Caribbean, although of course we’re not supposed to call it a colony. I’ve been grumbling about Puerto Rico for ever,... Read More

Reports Of Korea’s Self-Abolition Have Been Exaggerated
(Headline with apologies to Mark Twain). Immigration patriots have long been fascinated by nation-states that appear to be resisting globalist pressure to abolish themselves, like Japan and Israel. So some dismay greeted the report by Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost that multiculturalism had infected South Korea and that it was well down the path to Western-style... Read More

If there is one promise Donald Trump will never be able to back away from and survive politically, it is The Wall. The Great Wall of Trump has taken on a kind of existential importance, both as a tangible symbol of Trump’s ability to keep his promises and as a concrete representation of the Historic... Read More
Christmas Market display, Leipzig, 2015
Few cultural traditions are as charming, beautiful and unifying as the German Christmas Market. For about a month, the center of each German city or town becomes a festival ground, where folks can eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company. The offerings of gluhwein, wursts, flammkuchen, fish stew, handbrot, cinnamon stars, carved figurines and tiered... Read More
The terrorist who hijacked a truck in Berlin and ran over and killed 12 people, maiming and wounding 48 more, in that massacre in the Christmas market, has done more damage than he could imagine. If the perpetrator is the jihadist from Tunisia who had no right to be in Germany, and had been under... Read More

Trump and Tillerson have the Power to Stop Them Coming Here immediately
On Monday December 19, another Muslim murderer ran amok: twenty-three-year-old Tunisian immigrant Anis Amri hijacked a big rig and drove it into a crowd of Christmas shoppers in Berlin, Germany, killing twelve and injuring fifty. Three and a half days later, in the small hours of Friday morning, Amri was spotted by two cops in... Read More

Our Ruling Class’s anxieties about the Russians, and their anxieties about us, have a deckchairs-on-the-Titanic quality about them. Peering forward into the middle 21st century as best I am able, there are much bigger issues looming. Nine years ago I wrote a piece titled “The Arctic Alliance.” My argument, in a nutshell, was that the... Read More

I’ve been meaning to say something about Brexit, the referendum in Britain six months ago to leave the European Union. It’s still causing a huge constitutional fuss over there. I’ve hesitated to comment, because, in the first place the little I ever knew about the British Constitution has long since drained away down the foggy... Read More
An “aging white population [is] speeding [up] diversity,” blared a headline on The Hill. Once again, a Fake News outlet has confused cause and effect, giving readers the impression that the two trends—whites dying-out and minorities thriving—are spontaneous and strictly parallel. The reverse is likely true. Corrected, The Hill headline should read: Could speeding up... Read More

Last week started off with another Muslim terrorist attack, this one on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus.

Then he got out and stared stabbing bystanders with a butcher... Read More
Did you know that Great Britain is going down the drain because the citizens want to remain British? Did you know that the British are inherently racist, jingoistic, bigots, and obnoxious because they don’t want to become Pakistanis, Syrians, Africans or some multicultural combination?
