As we all know, the Zeroth Amendment to the Constitution, as carved on the Statue of Liberty, is that Americans don’t have the right to borders because that would discriminate against the civil right of every foreigner on Earth to immigrate here. For instance, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright ringingly reminded us of the Zeroth Amendment today:

But that leads to the less-cited Omega Amendment:

  5. OT: “Trump’s White House Charm Offensive a Contrast to Solitary Obama,” Roll Call, today.

    http://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/donald-trump-white-house-charm-offensive#sthash.HntbHoyf.dpuf

    I have a feeling that the difference in what people-person Trump is able to accomplish on a day by day basis with Congress in his first couple of years, compared to what the Anointed One managed (or rather, didn’t) in his entire Presidency, is going to be too obvious to ignore but also too embarrassing to admit for Obama partisans.

  6. Anon • Disclaimer says:

    The Lazarus poem is arrogant.

    It really means OTHER nations are shi*, they are stinkpots, and they have no future. And most people around the world are losers and morons.

    So, their only hope is to come to America and live in a land founded and ruled by white people.

    If the settlers in America built a wilderness into a great rich nation, why can’t other peoples follow the same formula and do the same? Why must they come to America and live in white-run and white-created world to have the good life?

    Are they innately inferior, worthless, and idiotic? Is there something wrong in the air in their own nations?

    IF white people built a great nation upon wilderness, then surely other nations have the advantage of 1000s of yrs of history and civilization. They don’t have to build from scratch. So, they should get to work.

    Also, why the US? If the New World is so great, have all immigrants go to Latin America. Besides, if diversity is wonder of wonders, Latin America is more diverse than the US, which is still a white majority nation.

    Of course, diversity messed up Latin America, so the lesson would be too much diversity is BAD. And that is why even Latin Americans wanna come to the US even as they hate gringo.

    Plenty of Latino whites wanna get away from too many non-whites in Latin American nations. And plenty of non-whites wanna get away from corrupt Latino white crony-rule. So much for diversity.

    That Lazarus poem needs scrutiny.

    It is very insulting. For one thing, it calls people around the world a bunch of losers, wretches, nincompoops, and tards. And it insults other cultures. I mean why should people living in their own culture suck so bad?

    Imagine if I say to to Asian-Indians:

    [MORE]

    “Hey you trashy, moronic, wretched, hideous hindu in Hindu land. You suck so bad. You stink to high heaven. You have no hope as hindu among your own kind. You are part of the huddled refuse of mankind. You worthless moron. The ONLY hope for you is to flee from your own worthless sh**y kind and crawl to a superior white-ruled nation for you to have any hope for justice, sanitation, development, and opportunity.”

    That sounds pretty insulting. Lazarus logic says all cultures around the world suck. People living in their own land and culture have NO hope. They must come to see their own nations/cultures as prisons and hells to escape from. And they must come to good ole USA ruled by WHITE PEOPLE who are superior in everything.

    Of course, what she really meant was “We Jews can make lotsa more money in the US cuz it has fewer restrictions on Jews.” But since she couldn’t ask the US to take in only Jews, she made some big stink about how US is the savior of all the ‘huddled masses’.

    We need a new poem for the 21st century.

    The rough cut of the poem called STAY HOME DUMMIES.

    Hey, all you foreigners who wanna come to America or white lands..
    Why do you hate your own race, culture, and land so much?
    Why do you wanna leave behind your own people, culture, and land
    to leech off of white people, especially when you shit on white folks all the time?
    Do you suck so bad that you can’t make your own nation work?
    Is your culture so awful that it can’t instill you with proper values?
    Are your people so retarded that they can’t even build a modern economy?
    Are your values so rotten that you can’t have rule of law and social order?
    Are you so moronic that you can’t run good schools?
    Do you not care about your own heritage to defend and preserve?
    You wanna flee from your own people cuz they suck so bad?
    But if your people suck so bad that YOU wanna run from them, maybe you suck too.
    After all, you are one of your people, so their problems must be your problems.
    Think of a skunk. If a skunk wants to run from stink of other skunks, it doesn’t make him any less skunky.
    Why should we accept a skunk who can’t stand other skunks? Maybe we don’t want you for the same reason you don’t want your own kind. You’re all skunks.

    We know live in the age of the internet.
    Even third world nations have access to tons of science, math, technology.
    You can learn so much and build your own nations.
    If you won’t do so and just sit around looking at porny pics of white women
    on your cellphones, then stop being a moron and get to work to make a better society.
    We are tired of morons, hustlers, nincompoops, and tards?
    Check your cellphones at the pics of the Pussy March. You see, the US has enough nutjobs andlosers. We don’t need more wretches and losers, huddled or otherwise.

    STAY HOME AND BUILD YOUR OWN NATIONS. FIX YOUR OWN PROBLEMS.
    AND WE PROMISE WE WON’T HAVE THOSE DAMN NEOCONS MESS UP YOUR
    NATIONS WITH MORE WARS.
    I mean, take that tard-woman Albright. She claims to care so much about
    the huddled masses, but this crazy wench pushed sanctions on Iraq
    that starved 500,000 kids.
    INVADE, SANCTIONS, and such crazy INTERVENTION
    will only create more conditions that make people want to flee.
    Just look at the Middle East. The globo-likes of Albright, Hillary, Nuland, and others have been messing up one MENA nation after another, and that led to huge ‘refugee’ crisis.

  7. Wasn’t it a co-ethnic of Ms “Albright” who subverted the point of Lady Liberty in the first place?

  9. So our immigration policy should be set by a treacly poem a century and a half old. If I’m making poems jurisprudence, Frost’s poem about walls and fences making good neighbors is my choice.He was also JFK’s at his inaugural, which is way better than Maya Angelyou.

    And perhaps if the immigrants of today were more than 12% Euro and wanted to become Americans , that might even make sense. Alas, we’re getting Linda Sarsours, Barack Obama Srs, Russian stripers with C-section scars who start every sentence with “In MY country..”.Chinese birth tourists, ,backward and angry Muslims, faux Nigerian princes and a mess of Latin Americans wiping out the bottom rungs of the blue collar wage scale. Question for Ms. Albright-who can we exclude? Can we have any rules beyond the poem?

    If you read about Emma Lazarus's background and projects, you'll see that that poem wasn't treacle so much as a trap for the goyim baited with sweet stuff.

    "In MY country" is one of my top peeves. Any immigrant I hear saying it is inscribed as unworthy of any of my/my family's resources of any type. There are many ways to tactfully redirect them.

    It's time for the New World HBD experiment of this republic to reboot itself by closing borders and farming excellence, rather than degeneracy or cotton. Anyone who doesn't like it, and has another country elsewhere, can leave.

    Which reminds me--I'm especially PO'ed about "dual citizenship" lately. We have a lot of Canuck-US dual citizens here in Pugetopolis, as well as various Asian-US. Pick a country, dammit, and throw your lot in 100% with we who have nor want no other but this one, and give it our all. Or friggin' leave.

    Nope. The US most decidedly does *not* need to import any more people. It has 320 million, almost twice as many as when I was born. And it has not been an improvement. The US also has plenty of high quality human capital of its own. (Transcontinental railroad, electric lights, phonograph, airplanes, model-Ts, plastics, electrification, nuclear weapons, digital computers, going to the moon, the Internet, PCs ... all launched by stale pales without benefit of post-65 diversity.) The US population is locked into 400 million--perhaps even before I croak, and if immigration continues at pace, will top half a billion in my kids' lives. There is no benefit to moving toward China\India crowding ... even with white folks. As it is we'll be browner, blacker, dumber and more crowded--insane.

    And ... white Euros need to stay and *fight* like the dickens for the survival of their nations. (Heck, i'd rather emigrate there and help them take out the trash, then have them give up the West's homeland and run here.)

    What the US needs--the West needs--is to slam the door shut. End the insanity and point out that immigration is *unnatural*. The natural order is defending your turf, not letting in foreigners peacefully. And then address the damage with deportations and a restoration of eugenic fertility.

  10. This is why I suggested in this space that the execrable bronze plaque at the base of the statue should be removed by Executive Order and used as a source of bronze to cast medals for all future Border Patrol agents conspicuously gallant in the line of duty, to be called the Trump Cross and worn around the neck on a scarlet ribbon to represent the blood of all agents killed (thank you, Your Majesty Queen Victoria, for the inspiration).

    This is, of course, ridiculous. Black women have nothing to do with America's history of relative liberty, and blacks--men and women--aren't ones with much of a notion of political liberty at all.

    However ... let's be honest, the past 50 pretty much demonstrate that *women in general* don't have much love for or appreciation of liberty. Having a woman--even a lady--represent "liberty" is a pictorial oxymoron. Liberty, like civilization, is a product of men.

    Subverting something your ancestors helped create is not impossible, obviously. There is no logic to your assumption.

    I will admit she might not have known what she was doing...but that would contradict a commonly believed given, one from which it follows that she must have had a very high IQ.

    Listen, I'm not obsessed with the ethnic-racial angle to this. The fact is, the damn Statue of Liberty does NOT symbolize immigration. She is holding a torch of liberty for humanity to see, not for immigrants to follow. Schuyler's poem is either a lie or a stupid mistake.

  24. - US never had seriously full open access to the global poor. For example, the US has never tried to move the majority of people living in poverty of nations like Ethiopia and Bangladesh to the US.

    - The US had chosen to pause immigration from Europe in the 20th century. There is no reason it doesn’t have the moral right to do this again. “American must remain open”? to unlimited migration? To the demographic majority of the undeveloped world?

    - The “walls don’t work” argument has proven hollow. “If you build a 20 ft wall, they will find a 21 ft ladder”. That argument is gone. Apparently, when the will to really stop immigration is there, leaders really can stop or slow or pause immigration. The issue is 99% one of willpower.

    - The “immigration surge is already over, more people want to leave, then enter” argument is proving hollow.

    - The “immigration benefits the host country” argument is also proving hollow. Albright isn’t at all concerned about the impact on incumbent American citizens but on those that want to enter.

    - The New Colossus is being quoted as an ode to abandoning national/racial/tribal structures and identities, when it was written with the exact opposite intent by Emma Lazarus, who was a good person, but very exclusively was focused on helping her own Jewish tribe and strengthening tribal boundaries.

    She was a strong early advocate for a Jewish nation state that excludes non-Jews from entry. She named her book, “Songs of a Semite”. According to Wikipedia, “she helped establish the Hebrew Technical Institute in New York to provide vocational training to assist destitute Jewish immigrants to become self-supporting.” Not that there is something wrong with a Jew being kind to fellow Jews, but it’s completely tribal and overtly racist to focus on your own tribe and exclude others, and that is precisely her legacy.

    Arghhh. Those subversives would be Georgina Schuyler

    Yes, yes. I’ve been through this before. My family has been here just as long, longer in fact.

    Subverting something your ancestors helped create is not impossible, obviously. There is no logic to your assumption.

    I will admit she might not have known what she was doing…but that would contradict a commonly believed given, one from which it follows that she must have had a very high IQ.

    Listen, I’m not obsessed with the ethnic-racial angle to this. The fact is, the damn Statue of Liberty does NOT symbolize immigration. She is holding a torch of liberty for humanity to see, not for immigrants to follow. Schuyler’s poem is either a lie or a stupid mistake.

    Take your pick, whichever one satisfies your ego.

    Wasn’t it a co-ethnic of Ms “Albright” who subverted the point of Lady Liberty in the first place? Was it not intended to signify a people’s inalienable right, in a constitutional republic, to decide their own affairs and choose their own destinies? A gift from one sister republic to another, in a world of tyrants and monarchs?
     
    And now, Lady Liberty is Black:

    On one side of the new $100 gold coin from the U.S. Mint is the image of an eagle in flight, “with eyes toward opportunity and a determination to attain it,” a news release on the coin states.

    On the other side, there is the depiction of Liberty. And this time, she is an African American woman.

    “Lady Liberty, as depicted in coinage throughout the years, is modeled after our society’s continued evolution,” Elisa Basnight, U.S. Mint chief of staff, said during an event Thursday. “As we as a nation, continue to evolve, so does Liberty’s representation.”

    It never ceases to amaze me, Mr. Sailer, regarding your knack on this particular issue like your SJW counterparts to hammer home a useless meme. Of course Americans have always had the right to limit immigration, as our history as borne out. It’s just that some Americans don’t like the decisions made by our elected officials and our business elites in the recent past regarding the entry of non-European immigrants, who experienced the same disdain by nativists as some of our own ancestors who came from “undesired ethnic stock”.

    Can you wrap your head around the idea that the disdain by the nativists of 1850 for Irish immigrants and the disdain by the nativists of 2016 for Somali immigrants could both be perfectly justified? It sounds to me to be a little bit difficult for you. Although I am an Irish-American whose founding New World ancestor arrived in New York City in 1842, I do not dispute the right of the "nativists" to have excluded him and his ilk from their British-derived American commonwealth. The first major contribution of the Irish was the New York City draft riots. The second, perhaps, was the Great Chicago Fire when Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over a kerosene lantern onto the hay.

    "It's just that some Americans don't like the decisions made by our elected officials and our business elites in the recent past regarding the entry of non-European immigrants,...". You got that one right.

    So our immigration policy should be set by a treacly poem a century and a half old. If I'm making poems jurisprudence, Frost's poem about walls and fences making good neighbors is my choice.He was also JFK's at his inaugural, which is way better than Maya Angelyou.

    And perhaps if the immigrants of today were more than 12% Euro and wanted to become Americans , that might even make sense. Alas, we're getting Linda Sarsours, Barack Obama Srs, Russian stripers with C-section scars who start every sentence with "In MY country..".Chinese birth tourists, ,backward and angry Muslims, faux Nigerian princes and a mess of Latin Americans wiping out the bottom rungs of the blue collar wage scale.

    Yeah, on the wall that will be built between Mexico and the U.S. the Robert Frost poem “Mending Wall” should be written all over it.

    "As we all know, the Zeroth Amendment to the Constitution, as carved on the Statue of Liberty, is that Americans don’t have the right to borders because that would discriminate against the civil right of every foreigner on Earth to immigrate here."

    It never ceases to amaze me, Mr. Sailer, regarding your knack on this particular issue like your SJW counterparts to hammer home a useless meme. Of course Americans have always had the right to limit immigration, as our history as borne out. It's just that some Americans don't like the decisions made by our elected officials and our business elites in the recent past regarding the entry of non-European immigrants, who experienced the same disdain by nativists as some of our own ancestors who came from "undesired ethnic stock".

    Most Esteemed Corvinus:

    Can you wrap your head around the idea that the disdain by the nativists of 1850 for Irish immigrants and the disdain by the nativists of 2016 for Somali immigrants could both be perfectly justified? It sounds to me to be a little bit difficult for you. Although I am an Irish-American whose founding New World ancestor arrived in New York City in 1842, I do not dispute the right of the “nativists” to have excluded him and his ilk from their British-derived American commonwealth. The first major contribution of the Irish was the New York City draft riots. The second, perhaps, was the Great Chicago Fire when Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked over a kerosene lantern onto the hay.

    You should leave, as your ancestors were deemed other than worthy of earning citizenship. Doesn't matter that you are white, you are Irish. That was the argument by nativists.

    "I do not dispute the right of the “nativists” to have excluded him and his ilk from their British-derived American commonwealth."

    They have that right, assuredly. Likewise, those who opposed nativists have that same right to incorporate groups other than European into our society.

  64. The left always seizes on the first, most convenient rationilization of anyway to advance their own agenda at the expense of everyone else. I’ve always wanted to turn on one of these smug “nation of immigrants” people and immediately ask, “Is Europe a nation of immigrants? Does Europe have a poem on a plaque?”

    At their expected answer (It is now!). I would follow up with about a two dozen questions, such as, what does the word Balkanization mean and where does it come from?

    When was the last time there was conflict between the Greeks and Turks? What moderated the behavior of the Turks, but is now being lost at a breakneck pace? How long was Constantinople a Greek city? When did it fall? What happened to the Greeks living there in 1821? How many Greeks were living in Western Anatolia and where are they now? What happened to the Armenians?

    What percentage of pied-noirs was there in Algeria in the ’50s? How many colonists can be found in North Africa now? Where did they flee and why? Where will the native French flee, when France is 90% Islamicized?

    How many people died during the Troubles? And so on, and so on…

    Slightly off topic.

    All different up North. "Nearly half of the population will likely be immigrants or children of immigrants by 2036 if current immigration levels continue, a Statistics Canada study estimates, up from 38.2 per cent in 2011."

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/immigrant-nation-newcomers-will-comprise-a-growing-share-of-canadas-population/article33755105/

    Nearly half! That’s astounding. These numbers cannot be correct.

    Yes, they are in average “better quality” immigrants than the zillion Mexican illegals in the US, but still, it’s the end of Canada as a white nation, and in much less time than in the US.

    If you read about Emma Lazarus’s background and projects, you’ll see that that poem wasn’t treacle so much as a trap for the goyim baited with sweet stuff.

    “In MY country” is one of my top peeves. Any immigrant I hear saying it is inscribed as unworthy of any of my/my family’s resources of any type. There are many ways to tactfully redirect them.

    It’s time for the New World HBD experiment of this republic to reboot itself by closing borders and farming excellence, rather than degeneracy or cotton. Anyone who doesn’t like it, and has another country elsewhere, can leave.

    Which reminds me–I’m especially PO’ed about “dual citizenship” lately. We have a lot of Canuck-US dual citizens here in Pugetopolis, as well as various Asian-US. Pick a country, dammit, and throw your lot in 100% with we who have nor want no other but this one, and give it our all. Or friggin’ leave.

    This is why I suggested in this space that the execrable bronze plaque at the base of the statue should be removed by Executive Order and used as a source of bronze to cast medals for all future Border Patrol agents conspicuously gallant in the line of duty, to be called the Trump Cross and worn around the neck on a scarlet ribbon to represent the blood of all agents killed (thank you, Your Majesty Queen Victoria, for the inspiration).

    I would go one step further and suggest that statue itself be melted down and used to honor with a medal all the Border Patrol that have sacrificed their life from its inception.

    - US never had seriously full open access to the global poor. For example, the US has never tried to move the majority of people living in poverty of nations like Ethiopia and Bangladesh to the US.

    - The US had chosen to pause immigration from Europe in the 20th century. There is no reason it doesn't have the moral right to do this again. "American must remain open"? to unlimited migration? To the demographic majority of the undeveloped world?

    - The "walls don't work" argument has proven hollow. "If you build a 20 ft wall, they will find a 21 ft ladder". That argument is gone. Apparently, when the will to really stop immigration is there, leaders really can stop or slow or pause immigration. The issue is 99% one of willpower.

    - The "immigration surge is already over, more people want to leave, then enter" argument is proving hollow.

    - The "immigration benefits the host country" argument is also proving hollow. Albright isn't at all concerned about the impact on incumbent American citizens but on those that want to enter.

    - The New Colossus is being quoted as an ode to abandoning national/racial/tribal structures and identities, when it was written with the exact opposite intent by Emma Lazarus, who was a good person, but very exclusively was focused on helping her own Jewish tribe and strengthening tribal boundaries.

    She was a strong early advocate for a Jewish nation state that excludes non-Jews from entry. She named her book, "Songs of a Semite". According to Wikipedia, "she helped establish the Hebrew Technical Institute in New York to provide vocational training to assist destitute Jewish immigrants to become self-supporting." Not that there is something wrong with a Jew being kind to fellow Jews, but it's completely tribal and overtly racist to focus on your own tribe and exclude others, and that is precisely her legacy.

    The “walls don’t work” argument has proven hollow. “If you build a 20 ft wall, they will find a 21 ft ladder”. That argument is gone.

    The very reasons that medieval beseigers gave up on ladders over a certain length;
    i. “You can’t get the wood these days, gaffer”
    ii. “The lads can’t lift ‘em sir, even with ropes.”

    Wasn’t it a co-ethnic of Ms “Albright” who subverted the point of Lady Liberty in the first place? Was it not intended to signify a people’s inalienable right, in a constitutional republic, to decide their own affairs and choose their own destinies? A gift from one sister republic to another, in a world of tyrants and monarchs?
     
    And now, Lady Liberty is Black:

    On one side of the new $100 gold coin from the U.S. Mint is the image of an eagle in flight, “with eyes toward opportunity and a determination to attain it,” a news release on the coin states.

    On the other side, there is the depiction of Liberty. And this time, she is an African American woman.

    “Lady Liberty, as depicted in coinage throughout the years, is modeled after our society’s continued evolution,” Elisa Basnight, U.S. Mint chief of staff, said during an event Thursday. “As we as a nation, continue to evolve, so does Liberty’s representation.”

    On the other side, there is the depiction of Liberty. And this time, she is an African American woman.

    This is, of course, ridiculous. Black women have nothing to do with America’s history of relative liberty, and blacks–men and women–aren’t ones with much of a notion of political liberty at all.

    However … let’s be honest, the past 50 pretty much demonstrate that *women in general* don’t have much love for or appreciation of liberty. Having a woman–even a lady–represent “liberty” is a pictorial oxymoron. Liberty, like civilization, is a product of men.

    (If we’re forced to put a woman on there as “Lady Liberty”, then I vote for Kylie.)

    And perhaps if the immigrants of today were more than 12% Euro and wanted to become Americans , that might even make sense.

    Nope. The US most decidedly does *not* need to import any more people. It has 320 million, almost twice as many as when I was born. And it has not been an improvement. The US also has plenty of high quality human capital of its own. (Transcontinental railroad, electric lights, phonograph, airplanes, model-Ts, plastics, electrification, nuclear weapons, digital computers, going to the moon, the Internet, PCs … all launched by stale pales without benefit of post-65 diversity.) The US population is locked into 400 million–perhaps even before I croak, and if immigration continues at pace, will top half a billion in my kids’ lives. There is no benefit to moving toward China\India crowding … even with white folks. As it is we’ll be browner, blacker, dumber and more crowded–insane.

    And … white Euros need to stay and *fight* like the dickens for the survival of their nations. (Heck, i’d rather emigrate there and help them take out the trash, then have them give up the West’s homeland and run here.)

    What the US needs–the West needs–is to slam the door shut. End the insanity and point out that immigration is *unnatural*. The natural order is defending your turf, not letting in foreigners peacefully. And then address the damage with deportations and a restoration of eugenic fertility.
