Net support (opposition) to California's Proposition 16 follows. If passed it will allow for racial and sexual characteristics to be used in considerations of public employment, contracts, and education by repealing Proposition 209, a 1996 amendment that prohibited the use of race and sex in government employment and educational placement: Proposition 209 was modeled on...

A minimum of 35% and a maximum of 65% of Democrats say the GOP-controlled Senate should've considered Merrick Garland in 2016 but that the GOP-controlled Senate should not consider Amy Coney Barrett now. A minimum of 17% and a maximum of 40% of Republicans say the Senate was correct in not considering Obama's nominee but... Read More
Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski are less unpopular and modestly more popular, respectively, among Democrats than they are among Republicans: Despite appearing to have settled into his role as professional betrayer, Romney is gesturing towards a vote on President Trump's nominee. Perhaps he intends to pull a fast one and vote "no", finally settling the... Read More
It seems Harry Reid's chickens are coming home to roost: The alacritous president is ready to go: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death was surely less of a shock to Washington insiders than it was to those of us in the provinces--and it isn't all that shocking to us. The late Justice was a decade older than... Read More
From a recent SurveyUSA today nationwide poll, mean estimates of the percentage of police officers in America who are "bad cops" by selected respondent demographic characteristics: Overall, more than one in every four officers are perceived to be bad apples. That's striking. When the economic collapse comes, the country is done. Nobody trusts anyone or... Read More
Is a bill the WSJ editorial board, with its long history of advocating for open borders, should be honored to have helped give life to. From the text of the proposed legislation: The 35 initial sponsors of this open borders bill are demographically representative of new America, one in which border control of any kind... Read More
Things I am not: A white supremacist, defined by Merriam's as "a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races". A white nationalist, defined as "one of a group of militant whites who espouse white supremacy and advocate... Read More
Candace Owens, in true millennial form, calls white privilege a myth: Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night— then was subsequently acquitted of all charges. #JussieSmollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of...

Nobody wanted--needed!--it to be true more than white liberals did: A few of the most zealous believers will cling to the attendant statement that while two years, a bazillion dollars, and a gazillion investigatory man-hours couldn't turn up a shred of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, the orange man hasn't been formally exonerated...

Foundational for public trust in the American legal system to stand is the acceptance of occasional Type II errors as a necessary concession to avoid Type I errors. A Type I error occurs when an innocent party is found guilty on account of a misreading--or blatant rejection--of the evidence. A Type II error is when... Read More
Among those who express either support or opposition to Kavanaugh's confirmation by income for whites and for Jews: "Poor" corresponds to those with incomes under $50k per year, "Middle income" to those ranging from $50k-$150k, and "Affluent" to those earning over $150k annually. Jews are not just gentiles with a lot of money. Yes, we... Read More
DemsRRealRapists will be about as rhetorically and polemically effective as DemsRRealRacists has been--not very. Half the population views Bill Clinton and Keith Ellison as good guys. Calling them the real Kavanaughs just hardens things along partisan lines. It's off-putting to a lot of people in the squishy middle. So is this: Instead of clown world... Read More
Like many on our side who are incorrigible noticers, I noticed a lot of the most vile, acerbic attacks on Brett Kavanaugh were coming from blue-checkmarked members of the 2%: Yes, I know Wise is only partially Jewish--that's increasingly the case for all of the non-Orthodox due to high outmarriage rates--but it's not as though...

- From a friend on business in DC: Wearing MAGA hats in the most hostile place in the country to do so isn't for the faint of heart. These young shitlords are made of stern stuff. They're exactly what we need. - Relatedly, a good dissident cartoon for someone like Ben Garrison to create would... Read More
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
Nothing causes more outrage than a statement that is both obviously true and fervently wished by everyone to be untrue. Trump's alleged comments were heaven sent. At minimum they stave off DACAmnesty for another couple of months. More likely, they are its swan song. By the time DACA is set to expire in March, primaries... Read More
Via Steve Sailer, Israel's prime minister Netanyahu recently announced the country's intention to deport 40,000 "illegal infiltrators ... without their consent". Israel has a population of a little over 8 million. The US has a population of nearly 330 million. Adjusting for population size, that'd be the equivalent of president Trump announcing an "accelerated removal"... Read More
A few observations while picking through the 2016 FBI crime statistics follow. AmRen has written most everything there is to be written about past iterations of these reports. Additionally, I'm hesitant to delve too deeply because of the infinitely frustrating fact that non-Hispanic whites are not broken down into separate offender categories. It's infinitely frustrating... 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 percentages of San Franciscan adults who favor the place continuing to be a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, by sex and by race (n = 500): The SurveyUSA poll doesn't provide cross tabs for both race and sex (or data on marriage at all), but given that white marriage rates are higher than non-white...

This week we get the US supreme court reinstating most of the travel ban with the rest to be reinstated a few months down the road, the House passing Kate's Law and a bill defunding sanctuary cities, the vice chair of the presidential advisory committee on electoral integrity requesting state-level voter registration data for federal...

From a recent SurveyUSA poll asking residents of the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose metropolitan area about their opinions on reporting illegal immigrants to federal immigration authorities when they come into contact with local law enforcement officers. To get a sense of how lost California is to the cause of European civilization, only 53% of those surveyed... Read More
When the US discriminated against non-Jewish immigrants in the early nineties, the courts let it be because immigration is strictly the purview of the executive. When the Clinton administration targeted Cubans for deportation (i.e. Elian Gonzalez), the courts let it be because immigration is strictly the purview of the executive. When Arizona tried to enforce... Read More
A black robe from Brooklyn, on behalf of the ACLU, thwarts the electoral mandate given to the president by the American people in favor of Iraqi immigrants to whom the US constitution does not apply. America First meets ethnomasochistic leap-frogging loyalties, certainly not for the last time. While the dumb ones are calling him Hitler,... Read More
The alleged epidemic of police brutality against black bodies sweeping through the nation's urban cores aside, the tendency for blacks not to cooperate with the cops is nothing new. In the 1984 iteration of the survey, the GSS asked respondents if they would feel obligated to report a crime they witnessed occurring. The percentages, by... Read More
The only thing that would make the ongoing fiasco in Ferguson more instructive as a series of ‘teachable moments’ is if the city happened to have the name Springfield(, USA). It's a sordid microcosm of the entire country. Ferguson used to be a functional, middle class American suburb. As its demographics changed, fueled by the... Read More
Understanding that opposition to bestiality or pederasty is scarcely any more logically defensible than opposition to homosexuality is a worthy exercise in comprehending how human morality expresses itself. Many of the moral positions people hold are a natural outgrowth of their innate personalities. A commenter named Stephen asserted otherwise, writing: Just as logically consistent opposition...

With a victorious--if only symbolic, temporary, and ultimately futile--stand against amnesty looking to be secured thanks to the majority of Republicans in the House, the only part of the federal government I still have any hope at all in (and that hope is shaky to say the least), let's take a look at international sentiments...

As ridiculed as the slippery slope argument against same-sex marriage (polygamous/incestuous/bestial marriages will be next) has been by its proponents, there aren't many serious reasons to maintain that the definition of legal marriage will then, having expanded to include those of the same sex, stay put forever after. And so the institution will reclinate back... Read More
The equals sign has become almost ubiquitous as the supreme court considers the issue of same-sex marriage. Why are gay rights so chic at the moment? Putatively fighting for equality is always an easy way to obtain cheap grace. Additionally, though, I suspect it is because the same-sex marriage crusade feels purer than other potential... Read More
With the supreme court considering California's proposition 8 regarding same-sex marriage*, my social media feeds are full of self righteous crusaders crusading for the cause. Leaving alone the legal considerations and even questions about the potential socio-moral fallout in denying people civil rights or alternatively in devaluing marriage, the supercilious sanctimony of so many of the...

For the sages of the 'conservative' Establishment (I'm looking at you, Sean Hannity), a revisiting of recent history that illustrates why a coloring in of the country isn't just bad for Republicans' electoral prospects, it bodes terribly for a whole host of social, cultural, and economic positions that define the contemporary American right. The lesson at... Read More
Looking through FBI statistics, I came upon a table showing the number of federal law enforcement agents who had been assaulted by state in 2010. The top four, unsurprisingly, are Arizona, California, Texas, and New Mexico--the border states. Trying to stop unwanted people and paraphernalia from coming into the country is dangerous work.What does puzzle... Read More
I know, I know, pointing out a leftward skew in the major media is old hat. Jaded as I am, though, I'm still occasionally surprised by just how blatant the bias can be. From a story this morning on former corporate sponsors dropping their memberships to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) under pressure from... Read More
A reason to celebrate:It was something of a mantra aimed at those on the disaffected right during Bush's 2004 re-election campaign that while he may have disappointed with regards to illegal immigration, unrestrained spending, promises of a humble foreign policy, ad nauseum, his upcoming, long-lasting contribution to the composition of the Supreme Court necessitated their...

No-nonsense Maricopa county sheriff Joe Arpaio is being targeted Democratic House representatives for his department's aggressive enforcement of immigration laws:The 287(g) program, which the Maricopa county sheriff's department participates in, allows local law enforcement to arrest and hold illegal immigrants for deportation, and then be
The Supreme Court shot down three powerful entities in one fell swoop: The President (and the executive branch more broadly), the ICJ (the UN's judicial body), and those opposed to capital punishment were all rebuked. The state of Texas has some wiggle room in pulling directly from the Vienna Convention. Article 36, Paragraph 2 reads:... Read More
More evidence that the mass deportation argument--that the repatriation of the US' illegal immigrant population would require a massive manhunting and governmentally-funded transportation effort--is a brittle strawman with no grounding in reality: Pass laws with real penalties for residing in the US illega
Early next week, the Senate will take up defense proposals. Roy Beck has been alerted that several Senators have come together and will attempt to attach immigration provisions onto the bills that come up for approval. Many Republican Senators, in dire straits because of the continued Iraq mess and who are not really opposed to... Read More
A trial court judge in Kansas recommended a year in jail for an illegal Hispanic cocaine pushing immigrant (who employed his young son in the operation). The ultimate charges Martinez pled to would have only landed him on probation, but the judge deemed it impossible for him to comply with probationary requirements--obeying the law, chiefly--when...
