There are politicians who do not want to invite the world but who do want to invade the world. We call them conservatives. There are politicians who want to invite the world but who do not want to invade the world. We call them liberals. There are politicians who want to invite the world and... Read More
As long as the circumstances allow for some plausible deniability--even if that plausibility is stretched to the breaking point--it will be forgotten by next weekend's big sportsball match up:
Jig Bohnson writes: Excerpted directly from the gorillion-page report: Over 1,000 victims were identified (although they are obviously not named in the report). If for the sake of both simplicity and the benefit of Sodom we assume 501 male victims and 500 female victims and assume 5% of the population is gay--not bisexual, but exclusively... Read More
A lot of people on the dissident right were hoping for a Croatian win in the World Cup. The sentiment is understandable. Despite being under the thumb of the Soviet Union for half a century and part of the doomed conglomerate, Yugoslavia, that gave us the term "balkanization", Croatia is a real country today. France,... Read More
Agnostic's assertion that higher wages through left-economic populism--free college tuition, free health care, guaranteed jobs and wages for everyone (including criminals and aliens), etc--will ultimately lead to a reduction in immigration is one we can take a contemporary empirical look at. At the state level, the correlation between the minimum wage and the percentage of... Read More
Mom and baby have spent a lot of time sleeping in this hospital cell over the last couple of days so dad has correspondingly had a lot time to scroll through Reuters-Ipsos polling looking for interesting queries. The interactive site doesn't organize polls chronologically but instead puts them into categories and sub-categories of which there... Read More
++Addition++Heartiste reacts in detail. --- The Derb on how the kids don't rut like they used to: The following graph is sourced from a
Racial population distributions in South Africa, by age cohort:   This data is from 2011. Farm murders have stepped up since then. So has black immigration into South Africa from other sub-Saharan African countries. White emigration from South Africa has increased, too. The demographic situation is thus even bleaker than the above graphs indicate. The... Read More
Via Reuters-Ipsos, we're reduced to celebrating that at least we probably won't get another Iraq (N = 10,390):
Thousands of alleged Hondurans are being ushered through the narco-state to our south with support from the Mexican government there and from 'humanitarian' groups here (groups that should be charged with criminal conspiracy). They're headed for Tijuana. They know catch-and-release means they'll be running around California in a month, scheduled for an asylum hearing six... Read More
While the Derb's most astounding statistic of our age--that the US has admitted more Muslims for settlement in the 15 years after 9/11 than it did in the 15 years prior--is an observation well taken, the most rapid increase in settlements have come not from MENA countries but from sub-Saharan Africa. From 1990 to 2017,... Read More
So bye, bye MAGA dream in the sky:
Over the last several months the Democrats have quietly put into place a winning electoral--running moderate white men. Those moderate white men in Virginia, Alabama, and Pennsylvania sound nothing like their colleagues in California. Celebrating the dispossession of white Americans by illegal alien invaders comes naturally to someone like Kevin de Leon, who cut his... Read More
This isn't breaking news, but it could use a little search engine optimization. Find something concise and easily digestible proved difficult, so here it is. The following table shows, by theistic orientation, the mean number of children non-Hispanic whites, aged at least 40 when the question was asked, have ever had. For contemporary relevance all...

A couple weeks ago, Z Man put up a post that opened thusly: It's a question worth pondering, because whites in the US have been losing such a belief for decades, Among Western Europeans, it's already gone. The GSS queries respondents on their belief in heaven. The survey also asks them whether or not they... Read More
A few more graphics bequeathed to the historians of the future who will write The History of the Decline and Fall of the American Empire: Those results are for the US. Baby Naming Wizard includes a list of Western countries where Muhammad--peace be upon him--is among the top 100 most popular names for baby boys:
A theme revisited frequently here over the years is that the mildly 'dysgenic' trend occurring in the US is more strongly tied to educational attainment than to intelligence directly. TFR isn't the whole story. When the ball gets rolling matters, too. The shorter the time between generations, the more descendants the initial progenitor will have... Read More
A politically ambitious (or genuinely courageous representative of Heritage America) attaches a 'poison pill' amendment to the forthcoming DACA amnesty legislation Paul Ryan, his quisling band of cucks, and Democrats are currently working together to craft. This poison pill amendment expands amnesty to family members of "dreamers". It immediately bumps the estimated number of amnesty... Read More
The Derb cringes in response to Trump's ebullient praise for China's president: China can be China as far as I'm concerned. There's no country more advantageous for the US to be in the relative good graces of, and if it takes an extra application of verbal lather to get there, so be it. I certainly... Read More
++Addition++I made a couple of sloppy transposition errors in the composition of the initial post. They have since been corrected and the figures presented are now accurate. Interactive feedback is a great thing in the pursuit of the truth. I always welcome it. --- Using the UN's most recent population projection figures, the rate of... Read More
Another couple years, another 80 million people added onto the latest UN estimates of Africa's population at the turn of the century and another 80 million removed from the European figure (amounting to a 13% decline in the estimated total population of Europe in 2100 compared to the estimate for 2100 that was made just...

Here's Ben Shapiro's silly assertion again: Those opposed to same-sex marriage:
Continuing on the subject of Jewish opinions on abortion, the level of support among Jews scoring 9 or 10 on the GSS 10-question Wordsum vocabulary test, indicating an IQ of over 120, ratchets my surprise up another level. The percentage of high IQ Jews who say a woman should be able to obtain an abortion... Read More
When it comes to Israel the US, Ben Shapiro is color-blind. He explains: Well darn. How about blacks and whites opposed to income redistribution: This is getting embarrassing. Maybe when the ideology is more abstract, like the idea that government does too much and is too large. Surely blacks and whites in agreement on that... Read More
In the comments at the Chateau, Days of Broken Arrows writes: Jews tend to be on the left, (though nowhere near as overwhelmingly as blacks--who voted 65% and 86%, respectively, for Hillary in the two-way presidential election), so it's not surprising that they're pro-choice. The degree to which they are, however, is surprising. The following... Read More
The Derb, making a crucial and oft-repeated (by him) observation: The following table shows the percentage change in the number of immigrants to the US from the 27 countries whose populations are more than 85% Muslim from the year 2000 to the year 2015: Country Increase Somalia 275% Saudi Arabia 200% Iraq 100% Morocco 100%...

My recently assembled method of screening out people who are putatively angry and frustrated by Trump's intention to withdrawal the US from the Paris "climate justice" Agreement follows. --- Firstly, explain how the following factors into your concern about catastrophic anthropogenic climate change and what remedial steps should be taken to address it:
Since the GSS began explicitly asking about sexual orientation in 2008, I've been tracking it alongside rates of marriage infidelity. Every other homosexual has cheated on a spouse while just 1-in-7 heterosexuals have. That figure has stayed remarkably consistent over the five iterations of the survey that have been completed from 2008 through 2016. A... Read More
The CIA world factbook recently added a field listing of the mean age of women at first birth for several countries. In Chad and Niger, most women are getting pregnant before they turn 18. Sexual relationships that violate laws on statutory rape in the US are commonplace in sub-Saharan Africa, where the age of first... Read More
The reports of white death have been slightly exaggerated! Five years ago the US Census, in an announcement that was joyfully picked up by a host of media outlets, announced that non-Hispanic white (from hereon just "white") births constituted a minority of all births in the US for the first time ever. The claim came... Read More
Over the course of the last month, Reuters-Ipsos has polled Americans (n = 9,397) on whether they approve or disapprove of Trump's handling of immigration. Discounting the "don't know" responses shows a slight majority, 52%-48%, approving to some degree. That top line nearly even split disguises significant demographic differences. Whites approve 59%-41% overall. It will... Read More
From the GSS, responses from white survey participants on the ideal number of children for a household to have, by year of participation in the survey:
The FBI report is remarkable: In sum, Comey explains that Hillary passed along classified information from one unauthorized, unsecured server to another at least 112 times, each instance constituting a criminal act irrespective of intention. Regarding intention, she elected to use neither a government nor a commercial account but instead opted for a private server... Read More
Mara Liasson, who has spent most of the last year smugly missing the mark, hit the bullseye yesterday in an article with the descriptive title "Trump Just Gave The Speech Republicans Have Been Waiting 20 Years To Hear". I couldn't agree more. This is Pat Buchanan with even more moxie, with independent wealth, and without... Read More
; or why the left fears and loathes Trump but isn't threatened by Ted:
The United Kingdom's talk of banning Donald Trump is to Google's perpetual homage to diversity as the United Kingdom's failure to absorb anything more than a token of the Syrian-plus migration is to Google's failure to hire women and non-Asian minorities. While the tactics of both the UK and Google are comprehensible, they are no... Read More
Heartiste writes: The evidence is overwhelming and indisputable among women unmoored by the oppressive patriarchal institution of marriage. The electoral intentions of never married women on election day, 2012:
From an op-ed in the NYT comes this line: Coordinated attacks that killed at least 129 people and injured far more as they engaged in regular social activities qualifies as "the slightest trigger". Chill out, people, no big deal! A couple of student body members being bullied into stepping down because they refused to stand... Read More
Pathological altruism--a mind disease closely related to political correctness that may prove terminal to western civilization--on display (assuming the alleged crime occurred): Yes, this is an extreme example of it, but there are WEIRDOs reading this who will reflexively direct more anger at me for pointing out this heinous but avoidable tragedy than they will...

Via Ray Sawhill, see here for some amazing pictures of the MENA refugee stream in action. The flow looks to be around 80%-90% male. Hundreds of thousands of displaced young men from violent countries who will sink to the bottom of their host societies. I don't see what could possibly go wrong!
Discussing the prospects for popular success of a "liberals against mass immigration" movement, a 'troll' wrote: Until I read through the reactions, I hadn't even realized the guy was trolling. Intentions aside, his point illustrates the inherent difficulty the contemporary Western left has in dealing with situations like this, and why making a movement like... Read More
Speaking of young 'refugees' and geriatric catchers, the World Value Survey's sixth wave, spanning 2010-2014, is out. The percentages of respondents who either "agree" or "strongly agree" that "old people have too much political influence". First, among our European host countries included in the survey: Catcher BooElderly Germany 36.1% Poland 35.0% Spain 25.9% Sweden 33.3%... Read More
From a handy interactive chart showing the flow of 'refugees' into Europe through the end of 2014 by country of origin, the median age of the populations of the four largest sources of refugees: Syria -- 23 Iraq -- 22 Afghanistan -- 18 Somalia -- 18 And the median age of the populations of the...

A lot to unpack in a picture: - A few months ago, NPR interviewed an Egyptian boat owner whose vessel was being used in the Mediterranean edition of The Camp of the Saints. It was noted in passing that around 10%-15% of those making the trip across the sea are dying in the process. This... Read More
I associate the idea of being a citizen of the world with cosmopolitan SWPL types. It's not an inaccurate association when they are compared with badwhites, but it's a tendency more fully characteristic of the entire Fringe coalition than I would have guessed. In 2014, the GSS asked respondents if they "feel more like a... Read More
Pat Buchanan famously wrote that "historians may one day call 'the pill' the suicide tablet of the West". Looking at the sheer numbers, he seems to be on the mark. I'm not much of an optimist, but I do have a detached sunny disposition, so perhaps we can find a silver lining. The GSS has... Read More
Riffing off Steve Sailer's prime example of an instance where a picture is worth a thousand words, in 1950 sub-Saharan Africa's population density was on par with that of contemporary Idaho (8 people per square kilometer). By the turn of the next century, UN population projections predict that Africans will be packed in more tightly... Read More
For accosting a criminal brazenly disregarding the law and then acting in accordance to police training and protocol, a white police officer's fatal act of self defense is immediately regarded as an exhibit of murderous white racism by the major media and its race-hustling and guilt-tripping comrades. Despite any empirical evidence supporting such vicious accusations,... Read More
