vdare-arbery-vs-waukesha
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Last week, after the verdicts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, I was jubilant. This, I said, referring to Kenosha, Wisconsin, this was small-town America at its best. The old values still stand, I said; yes, the old procedures still work; and yes, justice can... Read More

Earlier, by John Derbyshire: The Cold Civil War: Two Groups Of Whites Fighting Over America, With Minorities On The Sidelines [Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I join in the general jubilation among National Conservatives over the not-guilty verdicts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. As well as joining in the... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See earlier: “They Want Us In Gulags” (That Includes Trump). Why VDARE.com Is Suing Facebook For Defamation My phrase of the week: "The Garland Archipelago." I have stolen it from the comment thread to a November 2nd article by Dan Gelernter at American Greatness.... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Here is an email I got from a reader. I'll give it to you straight: Now there's food for thought. To start where my reader ends: Shall we have to choose between the two soon, or ever? That I doubt. We're heading to a... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See, earlier: Establishment Reprising Emmett Till Narrative, Again. But White Lives Don't Matter by John Derbyshire; and Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice, by Ann Coulter The gentle, soulful, indigenous people who inhabited the Americas before Christopher Columbus arrived had very demanding gods. What their gods... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The horrors of Wokeness in higher education have been a staple of conservative commentary for decades—at least since the publication of Roger Kimball's book Tenured Radicals back in 1990. So the recent flap at Yale Law School did not cause me to swoon in... Read More
vdare-texas-illegals-2_1_
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier: A Former Border Patrol Agent Reports, With Picture, On The THOUSANDS Of Illegals Thronging To The Southern Border The border between Mexico and the state of Texas is 1,242 miles long, from Brownsville on the Gulf of Mexico to El Paso deep inland,...

Beauty pageants are always worth a look. They had one in Ireland last week. The winner, the new Miss Ireland, was 26-year-old Pamela Uba, and a bonny colleen she is. Another thing she is, is … black. Ms. Uba immigrated from South Africa at age seven. Now she is the very first black Miss Ireland,... Read More
vdare-afghan-insanity
We are now out of Afghanistan. This is such a relief after twenty years of futility, Joe Biden has been getting thanks from some surprising people—Ann Coulter and Richard Spencer, for example. I'm as glad as they are. But I think the appalling mess Biden's people made of the evacuation cancels out any gratitude due... Read More
You've been hearing a lot recently about how Afghanistan has been America's Longest War. No: Immigration has been our Longest War, ours and Britain's. From the Hart-Celler Immigration Act to today: 56 years. From Enoch Powell's famous speech urging immigration restriction to today: 53 years. There have been some small victories for common sense this... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] It looks as though, after twenty years of futility, two and a half thousand U.S. military deaths and twenty thousand wounded, along with a trillion dollars of spending (give or take a couple hundred billion), we may actually be disengaging from Afghanistan. "Disgraceful" is... Read More
vdare-orban-budepest
I'm happy to see that Hungary is in the news. Longtime readers and listeners know that I am a Hungarophile from way back. A quick scan of the Derb archives shows fond mentions of Hungary all the way back to April 2002. One of the longest reviews I've written in recent years was about a... Read More
vdare-jim-crow-jim-snow
Earlier, by Paul Gottfried: Did Pre-MLK America Really Need Redemption? I'm going to offer for your consideration what Winston Churchill would have called a naughty question. Here's my naughty question: Is Jim Snow worse than Jim Crow? I need to define terms here. For 245 years this country of ours has lived more or less... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I find it harder and harder to watch passing events without Mike Judge's 2006 movie Idiocracy coming to mind. That's especially the case with politics. Politicians have always said dumb things, of course; but in between the dumb things they generally, once in a... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier (July 2020) by John Derbyshire: Ireland Has Become The Heart Of Wokeness Sunday July 11th marks a hundred years since the truce that ended Ireland's War of Independence. That led to peace talks with the British government and the Anglo-Irish Treaty. On December... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] My Outrage Of (Last) Month was testimony given to the House Armed Services Committee by Lloyd Austin, who is U.S. Defense Secretary, and General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff [CJCS]. The hearing was on the Defense Department's budget request for... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I've passed comment before, more than once, on the ambivalence we all feel towards the police and other law enforcement agencies. We know we need them; we appreciate what a tough job they have; we want to support them and encourage them; but …... Read More
vdare-mara-gay
I've been telling myself for twenty years that America’s ongoing Cultural Revolution couldn't get any worse. But year by year it has gotten worse. The Red Guards now control all our major media outlets, including of course Social Media, and the entire educational system, public and private, from kindergarten to the Ivy League. This new...

vdare-women-hr-chart
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier this year I read Christopher Caldwell's very striking book The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties. Caldwell argued that the reforms of the 1960s, which seemed necessary and humane at the time to correct obvious injustices, had serious negative consequences, leading eventually... Read More
vdare-harry-georgeupdated
Earlier by John Derbyshire (June 6, 2020) I Will Not Genuflect To This Church Of Antiracism If you know any Shakespeare at all, you know the speech that Henry the Fifth gave to rally his troops at the battle of Agincourt. It ends with the words: "Cry God for Harry, England, and Saint George!" There's... Read More
vdare-covid-origin
Earlier by Ann Coulter: "I Will Not Be Scienced"—Experts Wrong, Covid Could Have Come From Wuhan Lab After All I have been enthusiastically promoting Nicholas Wade's long article on the origins of the COVID virus. Wade compares the two common theories: (a) the "wet market" theory, that the virus jumped from bats, or from bats... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Crisis in the Middle East! scream the headlines. After all these years—what am I saying? all these decades—editors everywhere must have the phrase "Crisis In The Middle East" set up as a single-key macro. But what they don’t have set up as a macro:... Read More
vdare-st-george
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] It’s St. George's Day, April 23. This has actually been St. George's week; not the chap who slew the dragon, but St. George Floyd of Minneapolis, who was slain himself last year by something much more fearsome than any dragon—by systemic racism! So the... Read More
vdare-babbit-potter
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier, by Steve Sailer: Nope, No Riot in Chicago Last Night Over Mexican Kid Shot by a Cop Here's a phrase due for an airing: "asymmetry of indulgence." That phrase was coined by conservative British journalist Ferdinand Mount. He was writing about how Leftist... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Wednesday last week was a milestone down the dark road we're traveling on immigration. President Trump last year put freezes on both immigrant and nonimmigrant admissions where they would impact American workers. Just to remind you, the word "immigrant," properly used, refers to people... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The main political event this week was of course Joe Biden's press conference Thursday. Just for once, in a spirit of commentarial dutifulness, I swallowed my loathing of politics and politicians and sat through the durn thing. How'd it go? At a strictly personal... Read More
Earlier: Georgetown Law Prof Says She Feels Angst Over Low Performance Of Her Black Students, Gets Fired and Second Georgetown Law Prof Is Out. His Crime? Saying "Mmmhhhhhh" Eleven years ago I spoke at a conference organized by the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I gave them a... Read More

Asian Americans’ Problem Is NOT "White Supremacy"
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] OK, it’s obvious to everyone that the world has gone mad. My helpful suggestion: Kipling explained it all 102 years ago in a poem titled "The Gods of the Copybook Headings." There's a reading of it on my personal website. I start off by... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier (May 30, 2020): Even Right Abandoning Accused Minneapolis Cop—But They Shouldn't Jury selection began this week for the conviction…Oops, sorry: I mean the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin on charges that he murdered the Holy Blessed Martyr George Floyd in Minneapolis...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The news recently has featured a spate of people behaving badly. It reveals an increasingly prominent class issue: the widening rift between working-class and lower-middle-class people (manual workers, clerks, small business owners, low-level government staff) and their social superiors in the Ruling Class (billionaires,... Read More
In the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, February 9th-13th, video footage was shown of events in the Capitol building during the January 6th protests. I had things to say about that video footage in my February 12th podcast. They were not very kind things. I spoke of the congressfolk "scampering off to safety under... Read More
vdare-justice
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Of the sixteen persons nominated for a cabinet position, as listed in the January 23rd issue of The Economist [After the chaos of the Trump era, what can Joe Biden hope to achieve?] nine have now been confirmed by the U.S. Senate and have...

Earlier: Biden's Treasonous Immigration Bill Opportunity For GOP Leader To Say Two Words "Immigration Moratorium" Thursday this week the Biden administration brought forth a bill on immigration. It comes in two versions, one for the Senate and one for the House, although the texts are well-nigh identical. Both versions are 353 pages long. [READ: Text... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Reading my New York Post, I caught this little news item from the nearby metropolis: A 72-year-old guy just getting off a subway train in Midtown was knocked to the ground by an assailant unknown to him: The perp was of course black. As... Read More
vdare-derb-article
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] A leading candidate for the title Truer Words Were Never Said is surely T.S. Eliot's observation that, If you want a set, that quote pairs off nicely with science fiction writer and occasional LSD user Philip K. Dick's observation in a speech he gave... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: A Long Farewell To Donald Trump, Immigration Patriot. And Thanks.

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See, earlier, May 30, 2020: Even Right Abandoning Accused Minneapolis Cop—But They Shouldn't The incoming new administration will, with high probability, face three major crises in the next year or so. China will probably invade Taiwan. The stock market bubble will burst and the... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I'm going to open with a confession here: watching those protestors rampaging through the halls of Congress on Wednesday afternoon, there was a part of me that was cheering them on. I hasten to add that it was only a part. My very strong... Read More
Yet more evidence, if more were needed, that we live in an increasingly lawless society showed up in New York City news outlets last week. Here's the story. December 24th last year … sorry: 2019, December 14th 2019, in the Bronx, sixty-year-old Juan Fresnada was out walking with a friend when a group of teenagers... Read More
Footnote to that: I've known that quote for as long as I can remember, but without recalling why I know it. I've never read William Cobbett, so it must have been somewhere else I saw it. The mystery was solved as an indirect result of my posting, in last month's diary, a few words of... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier by Steve Sailer: Biden Vows To Rip Out Roots Of Systemic Racism, i.e. Seize The Equity In Your Home You have surely heard the phrase "Systemic Racism" recently. What is it, though? A friend has directed my attention to a speech by Derrick... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See, earlier: NO, William The Conqueror Did NOT Have A Black Advisor.

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The core ideology of our Ruling Class, which citizens contradict at peril of losing their livelihood, is Race Denialism. Statistical differences in outcome by race cannot possibly be biological in origin. The only reasons for those differences you may discuss in public are social:... Read More
Earlier: Turkeys Vote For Christmas—GOP Votes To Import Leftist Indian Overclass (And Also Depress Tech Wages) Outrage of the week was surely Utah Senator Mike Lee getting his S.386 bill through the U.S. Senate. S.386 means a massive loosening of the rules for foreign workers to take up white-collar jobs in the U.S.A. Washington Watcher... Read More
The election? I called it—a year and a half ago. Better yet, although it gives me no pleasure to report the fact: I called it for the right reasons. The quality of the opposition. This wasn't as big a factor as I predicted. Joe Biden was barely a candidate at all; he just stayed in... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The fog of battle surrounding the November 3rd election has cleared somewhat, but there are still uncertainties about the consequences. Plainly there was much more than the usual amount of skullduggery in the registering and counting of votes, and it all seems to have... Read More
Earlier (2011): John Derbyshire On Understanding China And The Chinese [Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Having been writing about China for forty years, I was naturally interested to see what Trump and Biden had to say about the country in last Thursday’s debate. Answer: Nothing with any real insight... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier: Biden Calls For Nation-Busting Amnesty In Final Debate That President Trump will lose his re-election bid is a common opinion among people who wish otherwise.

If Biden/ Harris Win, A Crackdown On Whites Is Coming; You probably caught Keith Olbermann's October 9th address to the nation.
