See, earlier by Ann Coulter: Trump's Failing On Immigration. Don't Ask Me To Lie About It Three weeks ago, after Donald J. Trump abandoned the government shutdown and declared a national emergency to get some funding for his border wall, I asked: Did Trump Save His Presidency? Maybe—IF He Doesn’t INCREASE Legal Immigration. Unfortunately, and... Read More
Back this past November 2018 Patrick J. Buchanan celebrated his 80th birthday. For those of us who have known him over the years and counted him as a friend it appears as if time has stood still—it seems only yesterday that Pat was holding forth on CNN’s “Crossfire,” and that he was running for president,...

President Donald Trump usually has good political instincts, but he didn’t get it when it comes to Virginia’s latest political “scandal.” “African-Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia,” President Trump tweeted on Sunday, after Governor Ralph Northam refused to resign after being busted for appearing in blackface in a...

And then they came for Steve King. The immigration patriot Iowa congressman fell for a Main Stream Media setup in The New York Times. [Before Trump, Steve King Set the Agenda for the Wall and Anti-Immigrant Politics, by Trip Gabriel, January 10, 2019] The clickbait headlines screamed Steve King had asked why “white nationalist, white...

Washington is once again gripped by the specter of a government shutdown, as Congress and President Trump negotiate an end-of-year spending deal. A main issue of contention is funding for President Trump’s border wall. Sadly, but not surprisingly, neither Congress nor the administration is fighting to cut, or at least not increase, spending. Federal spending... 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

After a 50-year siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism -- perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in on Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at... 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
Republican leaders are "a bunch of wimps," said Jerry Falwell Jr. Conservatives and Christians need to stop electing "nice guys." "The US needs street fighters like Donald Trump at every level of government because the liberal fascists Dems are playing for keeps."

This has, in my opinion, been an unfortunate week in the politics of our republic. From a partisan political point of view the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Judge Kavanaugh. have ended well, with Kavanaugh being voted through by the committee. The entire Senate will vote on his appointment to the Supreme Court next week.... Read More

The fuss over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh having allegedly copped a feel from a high-school girl 35 or 36 years ago blew up just after last week's Radio Derb went to tape. My own first reaction, when I first heard the accuser's account of what happened, was: "They're making a fuss about that?" But... Read More
According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos survey, 70 percent of Americans, including about 50 percent of Republicans, support Medicare for all, the latest incarnation of single-payer health care. Republican support for a health plan labeled “Medicare for all” is not surprising considering that Republican politicians support Medicare and that one of their attacks on Obamacare was... Read More

Republicans may not be interested in racial politics, but racial politics is interested in them. Unfortunately, they have no idea how to respond—and it’s going to start costing them elections. Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, running against black Democrat nominee Andrew Gillum, is currently reeling from a Fake News media controversy accusing him of... Read More
Headliner of the week was the anonymous op-ed published in the New York Anti-White Times on Wednesday by—from the byline—"a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure." From the tone of the thing, the respectful references to tax cuts and "a... Read More

To listen to political psychologists and demographers, women are “abandoning the Republican Party” and voting for progressive policies because “they care about reproductive rights.” Get it? Women “care.” What do they care about? “Rights.” The implication, at least, is that “the gender gap in American politics” is related to something women possess in greater abundance... 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
As promised last week on Radio Derb, the GOP leadership in the House of Representatives has brought forth proposals for legislation, and those proposals are just as bad as I told you they would be. Chris Chmielenski over at NumbersUSA has all the grisly details. As Chris says, it's basically the good old Gang of... Read More

"There is no Republican Party. There's a Trump party," John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. "The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere." Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party's pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. It could be comatose. Consider.... Read More
What About A “Narrow” Vote On Official English/ E-Verify/ A Remittance Tax?
President Trump has apparently taken our advice and placed the immigration issue at the forefront of the upcoming midterms battle, hammering the Democrats at his exuberant rally in Nashville, TN.

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

Trump with Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, photo from Andy Aboud in Vegas, undated
The simple truth about John Bolton’s appointment to national security adviser is that the Republicans need Sheldon Adelson’s money in order to be competitive in the coming midterms, and John Bolton is a tool of Sheldon Adelson. The appointment of course is a complete reversal of Donald Trump’s declaration during the campaign that the Iraq... Read More
After the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, the GOP held the Senate and House, two-thirds of the governorships, and 1,000 more state legislators than they had on the day Barack Obama took office. "The Republican Party has not been this dominant in 90 years," went the exultant claim. A year later, Republicans lost the... Read More
From Lincoln to William McKinley to Theodore Roosevelt, and from Warren Harding through Calvin Coolidge, the Republican Party erected the most awesome manufacturing machine the world had ever seen. And, as the party of high tariffs through those seven decades, the GOP was rewarded by becoming America's Party. Thirteen Republican presidents served from 1860 to... Read More

It was only two years ago that then-candidate Trump avoided the annual Conservative Political Action Conference [CPAC] because it looked likely he would be booed by “true conservatives.” At this year’s CPAC, both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were treated as conquering heroes, leading the Main Stream Media to declare the president’s...

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

President Trump, every Republican senator, and the GOP majority in Speaker Paul Ryan's House just put the future of their party on the line.

Do we need a third major political party?

The day after his "Silent Majority" speech on Nov. 3, 1969, calling on Americans to stand with him for peace with honor in Vietnam, Richard Nixon's GOP captured the governorships of Virginia and New Jersey.

Before the largest audience of his political career, save perhaps his inaugural, Donald Trump delivered the speech of his life.

"I'm afraid the election is going to be rigged," Donald Trump told voters in Ohio and Sean Hannity on Fox News. And that hit a nerve. "Dangerous," "toxic," came the recoil from the media.
