[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Above, the border between Poland and Belarus. (And a camel.) This week's text is from the Gospel According to St. Matthew, Chapter 23, Verse 24 Jesus really nailed it there. That's our ruling class and their media lackeys to a "t" … actually, I... Read More

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
Earlier: Sen. Tim Scott Shows It’s Time For GOP To Give Up On Great Black Hope Strategy I've been expressing my boredom and disgust with the State of the Union speech (Yeah, yeah, I know: Joe Biden's Wednesday speech wasn't billed as an official State of the Union address, but I don't see how you...

Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: DUNKIRK: “People Should Be Hung From Lampposts, They Should Be Burned Alive, For What They’ve Done To Britain” Last week saw the publication in Britain of a report from something called the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. This commission was set up last year by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson,... 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
This White House press secretary Jen Psaki sets my teeth on edge. Apart from having a name that looks like something out of P.G. Wodehouse and sounds like the Japanese for "repo," she has a manner, a style of delivery, that could curdle milk. Here she was on Thursday in some exchanges with Fox News'... Read More
Eye-roll of the month was surely the Biden Administration telling us that the invasion of our country from the south is not a crisis, merely a challenge. When the managerial class tell us that something or other is a challenge, you can be sure it's a disaster caused by their own crackpot policies. I covered... 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: 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] Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: A Long Farewell To Donald Trump, Immigration Patriot. And Thanks. Back in the Golden Age of Science Fiction seventy-something years ago there was a novel everyone read, title The World of Null-A. It was about a future planet Earth that... 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
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
[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
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Wisconsin got a visit from the Antifa mob following the shooting in Kenosha of a criminal suspect, 29-year-old Jacob Blake, who is black. The cops had been called on Mr. Blake for reasons now disputed. He'd arrived at some kind of sidewalk kerfuffle in... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See, earlier: John Derbyshire: Time To Stop Importing An Immigrant Overclass; John Derbyshire: “Importing An Overclass”–The Email Bag As predicted in my 2001 China Diary—although somewhat sooner than I anticipated—the ChiComs have made their move on Hong Kong. That city is now under the... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] I'm keeping a wary eye on Africa recently. When this new coronavirus first came up, there was a general vague opinion that Africa would not be seriously affected. For one thing, the place is warm, and the virus doesn't like a warm climate. For... Read More
Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively at VDARE.com Recently, I posted here on some news about the wall being built along our southern border. Yes, said a link I posted, the wall truly is being built, although very slowly: "Miles Built: 93. Miles to be built: 509+." As I said, that's awful slow,... Read More
Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively at VDARE.com The latest terrorist killings in London got me reading up on Fishmongers' Hall. I'll confess I knew next to nothing about the place, in spite of having been born and raised in England and lived five years in London. The hall existed in my mind,... Read More
Earlier: Immigration, Not White Suburbs, Turning VA Blue. GOP Still Can Win With Sailer Strategy—But Ultimately Needs An Immigration Moratorium We had elections this week for various kinds of state and local positions. The results were mixed, pluses and minuses, but it looked to me like mostly minuses. On the plus side: voters in Washington... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com Last week's headliners were two mass shootings: one in El Paso, Texas last Saturday morning, followed in the small hours of Sunday morning by another in Dayton, Ohio. The El Paso shooter killed 22 people; the second killed nine. The El Paso guy is in... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com Amy Wax, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania, in trouble again—in a way that points to the fundamental contradictions of Yoram Hazony’s recent National Conservatism conference a.k.a. The Gatekeeper’s Ball. In March last year, Prof. Wax did a Bloggingheads interviews with black Economics... Read More

Earlier: Organized African Illegals Storm Pantheon In France, Two Days Before Bastille Day The Panthéon is a grand 18th-century building in Paris where notable French people have been interred since the Revolution. Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau are there; so are mathematicians Lagrange and Condorcet, novelists Victor Hugo and Émile Zola, physicists Pierre and Marie Curie,... Read More
Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com Yoram Hazony, author of the book The Virtue of Nationalism (and sparring partner of VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow) felt obliged to go on Twitter the other day to note that, quote: Of course Hazony is right. The commanding heights of our culture are in the... Read More

The real heart of current Democratic craziness, on plain display in the two debates among Democrat candidates for President this week: the topic of immigration. The candidates left us in no doubt that any enforcement of immigration laws—the people's laws, passed by Congress properly assembled, according to the Constitution—is inhumane and unacceptable. On this showing,... Read More

What better way to welcome summer than with a road trip? The Mrs and I closed out the month with a nine-day tour around Lake Ontario. Kind friends in upstate New York allowed us to use their house as a base camp. We drove up there from Long Island, stayed overnight with them, then headed... Read More

James Fulford writes: John Derbyshire made his now-annual visit to the American Renaissance conference in Burns, TN, held under the protection of the Tennessee Park Police and State Police, which left four antifa arrested. The conference has been held annually since 1994, but recent years have shown that while never a hate group, the attendees... Read More

When it comes to squishiness on immigration, the Trump Administration is now setting the pace. Every week brings news of some new concession to the business lobbies on legal immigration. I don't have to go looking for these stories. They pop up every few days. Washington Times, March 29th: DHS to double seasonal guest worker... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, availableexclusively on VDARE.com Adding to the stock of public merriment this week was Ilhan Omar, the dimwitted Democrat Representative from Minnesota's 5th District. Ms. Omar has been rather free with remarks about how Jews are too fond of money, use their money for disproportionate influence in our politics, have... Read More
You all know about the Never Trumpers—those neocons and Reaganites back in 2016 who told us Trump was utterly unsuited to be President by flaws of character and errors of policy. A few of the Never Trumpers have stayed true to that original spirit of seamless hostility to all things Trump. Most, though, have swung... Read More

Thank goodness St Valentine's Day meant there was something to glow about this week. The political news just gets more depressing. I've been trying to hold on to some shreds of faith in our President, but he's making it awfully difficult. This week's fiasco, or Trumpasco, was of course the emergency funding bill out of...

The President's speech on Wednesday seems to have been carefully crafted to appeal to those suburban women who, according to Senator Lindsey Graham and various pollsters, are fleeing from the Republican Party. [The GOP’s deficit with suburban women starts at the White House, By Dan Balz, Washington Post, November 13, 2018] So we heard the... Read More

Steve Sailer captured post-1965 U.S. grand strategy very neatly with his phrase "invade the world, invite the world."It's the inviting that we mainly concentrate on here at VDARE.com, but the invading is worth citizens' attention, too. As Steve's phrase suggests, the two things are not unconnected. We have done an awful lot of invading this... Read More
An Interview with John Derbyshire
2019 is almost here. As everyone knows, 2019 is the year when the dystopian sci-fi movie Blade Runner takes place. 2019 will also be the ten year anniversary of the release of John Derbyshire’s paradigm-shifting bestseller We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism, a book which paints a dystopian future for America even more disturbing and...

So there’s going to be at least a brief government shutdown over the Democrats’ refusal to fund President Trump’s Wall. Good. I cheered on the Wall when Trump put it at the front of his campaign in 2016. And of course we should have a secure barrier to separate us from the semi-barbarous countries to... Read More

U.S. immigration policy is nested in the broader issue of our time: the struggle of settled Western nations with their distinctive national characters and familiar—familiar, I mean, to the citizens who comprise them—their familiar styles of managing their public affairs, the struggle of these nations to keep their nationhood intact against the ambitions ofglobalizing elites....

We're coming up to nationwide elections just as elite hatred of white people—including of course by Goodwhiteethnomasochists—is reaching a new level of intensity. Just in the past few weeks: Korean-born Sarah Jeong is now happily working away as a member of the New York Times editorial board. Sample quote from her: "Are white people genetically... Read More
The Derbmobile had a slow leak on its right front tire, so Saturday morning I took it to the tire place. My little town has a tire place everyone goes to. Perhaps yours does too. Our tire place is squinched in a short street between two bigger streets about to converge—like the bar of an... Read More

Nice to see my old pal the Dalai Lama in the news. His Holiness spoke at a conference titled "The Art of Happiness and Peace" in the city of Malmö, Sweden. The event was hosted by a Swedish outfit named—please pardon my Swedish—Individuell Människohjälp, "IM" for short. I think the full Swedish name means "Individual... 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

I get queries and sometimes complaints from listeners asking me why I don't give more time to the Special Prosecutor investigation, the intelligence-service scandals, Mrs. Clinton's shenanigans and possible crimes in the 2016 campaign, and so on. I also get listeners asking me—always, I must say, politely—where I stand in the feud between our President... Read More

Ten Points About Mollie Tibbetts Murder
The murder of Mollie Tibbetts in Iowa is an unusually comprehensive story, in that it puts on display a remarkably large number of the components of our immigration-policy lunacy. Ms Tibbetts, just to remind you, was a 20-year-old white girl, a sophomore at the University of Iowa, majoring in psychology. She went jogging on July... Read More

I recently predicted the emergence of Polar Alliance as Ice People recognize their common interest in stopping the Sun People Tsunami. Further evidence of that common interest: Italy Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte just visited the U.S.A. and had a meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office. The two leaders got along famously, both... Read More

There was an interesting piece in The Spectator, July 5th: Imperialism is back — and this time it's politically correct. The author, James Delingpole, argues that the aid industry, in spite of enormous investments of money and manpower, hasn't actually done much for Africans — though it has, of course, made lots of people in...

Bad news and good news: This week demonstrated once again, as if it needed demonstrating, that there are two major political parties in the U.S.A.: The party of Open Borders on behalf of big-money business donors, and The party of Open Borders on behalf of Cultural Marxists, anti-white ethnic lobbies, and public-sector employee lobbies.
