“If you’re … pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people, and if you’re strong, then you don’t have any heart, that’s a tough dilemma. … I’d rather be strong.”

So said President Donald Trump, on issuing his order halting the separation of children from parents caught breaking into the country. Trump’s enemies are celebrating a victory. Yet the issue remains.

Under U.S. law, teenagers and tots cannot be detained for more than 20 days and must be held in the least-restrictive facilities. But if the children cannot be separated from the parents as they await trial, both will have to be released to keep families together.

We are back to “catch and release.”

When that welcome news hits Central America, the migrant stream moving north will become a river that never ceases to flow.

The questions America and the West face might thus be framed:

Is there a liberal, progressive, Christian way to seal a 2,000-mile border, halt millions of migrants from crossing it illegally, and send intruders back whence they came? Or does the preservation of Western nations and peoples require measures from which liberal societies today reflexively recoil?

Does the survival of the West as a civilization require a ruthlessness the West no longer possess?

Consider what our fathers did to build this country.

The English settlers brought in 600,000 slaves, ethnically cleansed the Indians, joined their cousins in a war to expel the French, then revolted and threw out those cousins to claim all the land to the Mississippi for ourselves.

Jefferson grabbed the vast Louisiana Territory for $15 million from Napoleon, who had no right to sell it. Andrew Jackson drove the Spanish out of Florida, sent the Cherokee packing on the Trail of Tears, and told a dissenting Chief Justice John Marshall where he could go.

Sam Houston tore Texas away from Mexico. “Jimmy” Polk took the Southwest and California in a war Ulysses Grant called “the most unjust ever fought.” When the South declared independence, Lincoln sent a million-man army to march them back in a war that cost 600,000 lives.

William McKinley sent armies and warships to seize Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The indigenous peoples were not consulted. “God told me to take the Philippines,” said McKinley.

The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed. They exhibit their guilt by tearing down the statues of the men who perpetrated the “crimes” that created America. But of these elites, it may be fairly said: they could never have built a nation like ours.

Which brings us again to the larger questions.

While our forefathers would have not hesitated to do what was needed to secure our borders and expel intruders, it is not a settled matter as to whether this generation has the will to preserve the West.

ORDER IT NOW

Progressives may parade their moral superiority as they cheer the defeat of the “zero tolerance” policy. But they have no solution to the crisis. Indeed, many do not even see it as a crisis because they do not see themselves as belonging to a separate tribe, nation or people threatened by an epochal invasion from the Third World.

They see themselves as belonging to an ideological nation, a nation of ideas, whose mission is to go forth and preach and teach all peoples the gospel of democracy, diversity and equality.

And this is why the establishment was repudiated in 2016. It was perceived as too elite, too liberal, too weak to secure the borders and repel the invaders.

“If you’re really, really pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people,” said Trump Wednesday. Is he wrong?

Since the Cold War ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union, it has grown apparent that the existential threat to the West comes not from Czar Vladimir’s Russian divisions returning to the Elbe.

The existential threat came from the south.

Half a century ago, Houari Boumedienne, the leader of a poor but militant Algeria, allegedly proclaimed at the United Nations:

“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”

This is the existential crisis of the West.

Thus, Trump seeks to build a wall, turn back the intruders, and bring Vladimir Putin back into the Western camp, where Russia belongs. Thus the new populist regime in Rome blocks boats of refugees from landing in Italy. Thus Angela Merkel looks like yesterday, and Viktor Orban like tomorrow.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

  2. the (((progressives))) most certainly do have a “solution”:

    no “West”
    no “America”

    and no Whites. What’s astonishing is not that the Jews, ‘scuse me, “progressives” intend to liquidate the White populations of Europe, North America, and etc. (((They))) do not intend to be ghetto’d, pogrom’d, or holocaust’d – by Whites – ever again. What’s astonishing

    is that most of the Whites still do not have a clue that they are being annihilated,

    and (((who))) is pulling the strings.

    Trump?? A (((Wall Street))) property who has betrayed his non-urban White voters on every populist promise he made. And so far, by way of mock battles with the “deep state” and “the media”, has apparently prevented them from noticing.

    No, that is patently false. There is no sustained effort by Jews to exterminate white peoples.

    "is that most of the Whites still do not have a clue that they are being annihilated..."

    OR, white people realize the BS you are selling and are making their own decisions about race and culture.

    Now, Patrick--"The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed."

    First, there was no requirement at all. Why couldn't Europeans simply have shared the land and resources? Second, people from different walks of life are "ashamed" of some of the murderous actions committed by our Founders. It's just not "elites". Third, you seem to forget that nativists were not too happy about "invaders" from Germany, or Ireland, or Poland, or Italy. They, too, felt that the character of America would be forever tainted by outsiders. Fourth, most Americans are not "defenders of the West", they are citizens and defenders of America.

    Now, certainly we must have a resolution to the illegal immigrant crisis. What that all entails, that's the great debate.

  4. In biology there is a process called osmosis, whereby molecules cross a membrane to move from a low pressure to a high pressure. The only way to control this phenomenon and stop the migration is to equalise the osmotic pressure in both compartments.

    It is my opinion that these population shifts are largely due to social welfare. How many immigrants live on entitlements? Take these away, introduce the concept of no work equals non-survival, and population shifts will lose their attraction.

    So said President Donald Trump, on issuing his order halting the separation of children from parents caught breaking into the country.

    This latest Trump surrender on immigration proves to me that those who said he desperately desires to be liked and accepted by the elites were in fact correct. All it takes is some carefully coordinated celebrity and elite “outrage” with perhaps some Ivanka tears and Melania finger shaking for Trump to do a total 180 on core campaign promises.

    Trump has the will to defend Jewry and protect Israel by any means necessary but not his own nation and race who still constitute the majority of this nation, but not for much longer.

    Because you cannot share with murderous savages with no concept of property.

    people from different walks of life are “ashamed” of some of the murderous actions committed by our Founders.
     
    They probably weren't your Founders, especially if your ancestors were anything other than British Protestants.

    you seem to forget that nativists were not too happy about “invaders” from Germany, or Ireland, or Poland, or Italy. They, too, felt that the character of America would be forever tainted by outsiders.
     
    The US and the traditional American people would have been better off without any of those immigrants. All immigration after 1787 has tainted the greatness that was this nation.


    most Americans are not “defenders of the West”, they are citizens and defenders of America.
     
    And America is the West, unless you are an immigrant parasite.

    The English settlers brought in 600,000 slaves, ethnically cleansed the Indians… Andrew Jackson drove the Spanish out of Florida, sent the Cherokee packing on the Trail of Tears, and told a dissenting Chief Justice John Marshall where he could go. Sam Houston tore Texas away from Mexico. “Jimmy” Polk took the Southwest and California in a war Ulysses Grant called “the most unjust ever fought.” When the South declared independence, Lincoln sent a million-man army to march them back in a war that cost 600,000 lives. William McKinley sent armies and warships to seize Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The indigenous peoples were not consulted. “God told me to take the Philippines,” said McKinley.

    Two things.

    US empire made good sense when whites were spreading out through areas sparsely populated with savages like in North America and Australia. It’s like Russian expansion into Siberia(and even Alaska) was doable because only Eskimo-like people stood in their way. Also, even SW territories were low in population when US took them. Lazy Mexers had done little with them.

    US empire went wrong when it began to take over places like Cuba and Philippines. There were enough people in those areas to put up resistance.

    As for Americans lacking the gall and grits to use violence to defend their interests, can it be said Americans are too soft? Too pampered? Too guilty?

    No, Americans are as ‘heartless’ and ‘cruel’ as in yesteryear. Consider. Most Americans didn’t bat an eye about 100,000s of Iraqi women and children killed by sanctions.
    Most Americans weren’t bothered by all those Iraqis killed following the invasion.
    Most Americans didn’t care about Obama’s destruction of Libya, Syria, and Ukraine.
    Tons of libby dib progs who are supposedly so dovish have been for New Cold War with Russia over nonsense like ‘gay marriage’ and Russia Hacking hysteria. And most Americans are not bothered by US support of Israeli violence against Palestinians.

    So, Americans are just as ‘hateful’ and ‘monstrous’ as ever. The difference is that Jews get to decide the Outrage Of the Moment cuz they own the media and academia(and whore politicians).
    So many progs are willing to risk war with Russia because the Outrage Machine has made Putin out as Enemy #1.

    So, the violence is still there. It’s just that most people are like dogs and need to be instructed by the Master as what to love or hate. And Jews have directed American Hate at Russia, Iran, Alt Right, and etc.
    This isn’t about real conscience or morality. It’s about WHO gets to control the Outrage Machine.

    why would anyone visit that disgraced den of servile cowards?

    TAC is a used cum rag, only with less dignity.

    (a cum rag had very few chances to achieve anything more, whereas the editors of the TAC could have been men, but decided to lick shekels off the floor of their benefactors)

    they, and their rag, are the deserving heirs to the legacy of George Will. So wanting to earn the favor of the man whose pockets clink with shekels, that they'd shove a blade into Pat Buchanan (and Philip Giraldi and others) backs, who they're not worthy to even polish the shoes of. Unless it's with their forked tongues.

    The TAC is to conservatism as the Vatican pedophiles are to Catholicism.

    Or the British elites are to the traditions of Merry Olde

    or CNN is to the truth.

    they profane the very notions of conservatism by acting as its most treacherous and duplicitous enemy, by pretending to be 'one of us'.

    By playing that role that Cicero warned us all of.


    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    "What’s astonishing is not that the Jews, ‘scuse me, “progressives” intend to liquidate the White populations of Europe, North America, and etc."

    No, that is patently false. There is no sustained effort by Jews to exterminate white peoples.

    "is that most of the Whites still do not have a clue that they are being annihilated..."

    OR, white people realize the BS you are selling and are making their own decisions about race and culture.

    Now, Patrick--"The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed."

    First, there was no requirement at all. Why couldn't Europeans simply have shared the land and resources? Second, people from different walks of life are "ashamed" of some of the murderous actions committed by our Founders. It's just not "elites". Third, you seem to forget that nativists were not too happy about "invaders" from Germany, or Ireland, or Poland, or Italy. They, too, felt that the character of America would be forever tainted by outsiders. Fourth, most Americans are not "defenders of the West", they are citizens and defenders of America.

    Now, certainly we must have a resolution to the illegal immigrant crisis. What that all entails, that's the great debate.

    Why couldn’t Europeans simply have shared the land and resources?

    Because you cannot share with murderous savages with no concept of property.

    people from different walks of life are “ashamed” of some of the murderous actions committed by our Founders.

    They probably weren’t your Founders, especially if your ancestors were anything other than British Protestants.

    you seem to forget that nativists were not too happy about “invaders” from Germany, or Ireland, or Poland, or Italy. They, too, felt that the character of America would be forever tainted by outsiders.

    The US and the traditional American people would have been better off without any of those immigrants. All immigration after 1787 has tainted the greatness that was this nation.

    most Americans are not “defenders of the West”, they are citizens and defenders of America.

    And America is the West, unless you are an immigrant parasite.

    "Because you cannot share with murderous savages with no concept of property."

    Savages? Not really. Tribal groups merely had different ways of life. And the natives had a concept of communal property, not individual property.

    "They probably weren’t your Founders, especially if your ancestors were anything other than British Protestants."

    Except the Founders enabled future generations to determine their own course. Remember, there were Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Baptists, Huguenots, and a number of other religious groups in the Thirteen Colonies who practiced their faith here.

    "The US and the traditional American people would have been better off without any of those immigrants. All immigration after 1787 has tainted the greatness that was this nation."

    You mean, originally. Originally, the Thirteen Colonies included English and non-English peoples, imported peoples, and Native Americans. It started out this way, but our nation was afforded the opportunities to include other groups as well.

    "And America is the West, unless you are an immigrant parasite."

    Actually, America is America, which resides in the Western Hemisphere.

    The English settlers brought in 600,000 slaves, ethnically cleansed the Indians... Andrew Jackson drove the Spanish out of Florida, sent the Cherokee packing on the Trail of Tears, and told a dissenting Chief Justice John Marshall where he could go. Sam Houston tore Texas away from Mexico. “Jimmy” Polk took the Southwest and California in a war Ulysses Grant called “the most unjust ever fought.” When the South declared independence, Lincoln sent a million-man army to march them back in a war that cost 600,000 lives. William McKinley sent armies and warships to seize Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The indigenous peoples were not consulted. “God told me to take the Philippines,” said McKinley.

    Two things.

    US empire made good sense when whites were spreading out through areas sparsely populated with savages like in North America and Australia. It's like Russian expansion into Siberia(and even Alaska) was doable because only Eskimo-like people stood in their way. Also, even SW territories were low in population when US took them. Lazy Mexers had done little with them.

    US empire went wrong when it began to take over places like Cuba and Philippines. There were enough people in those areas to put up resistance.

    As for Americans lacking the gall and grits to use violence to defend their interests, can it be said Americans are too soft? Too pampered? Too guilty?

    No, Americans are as 'heartless' and 'cruel' as in yesteryear. Consider. Most Americans didn't bat an eye about 100,000s of Iraqi women and children killed by sanctions.
    Most Americans weren't bothered by all those Iraqis killed following the invasion.
    Most Americans didn't care about Obama's destruction of Libya, Syria, and Ukraine.
    Tons of libby dib progs who are supposedly so dovish have been for New Cold War with Russia over nonsense like 'gay marriage' and Russia Hacking hysteria. And most Americans are not bothered by US support of Israeli violence against Palestinians.

    So, Americans are just as 'hateful' and 'monstrous' as ever. The difference is that Jews get to decide the Outrage Of the Moment cuz they own the media and academia(and whore politicians).
    So many progs are willing to risk war with Russia because the Outrage Machine has made Putin out as Enemy #1.

    So, the violence is still there. It's just that most people are like dogs and need to be instructed by the Master as what to love or hate. And Jews have directed American Hate at Russia, Iran, Alt Right, and etc.
    This isn't about real conscience or morality. It's about WHO gets to control the Outrage Machine.

    Also, even SW territories were low in population when US took them. Lazy Mexers had done little with them.

    Well, to be fair the Apache and Comanche kept the Mexicants at bay. I have always said, if we have to give it back those two tribes have a better claim than Mexico City does.

  31. While our forefathers would have not hesitated to do what was needed to secure our borders and expel intruders, it is not a settled matter as to whether this generation has the will to preserve the West.

    Mr. Buchanan – I hope this comment will be received in the spirit it is offered.

    But what would this generation have to preserve?

    Cultural preservation and formation – once trusted to mothers, sisters, aunts – was decades ago outsourced to corporate, for-profit interests. Finding ourselves without a culture to preserve, many cling to the zombie of culture, race. Our adversaries take heart at this and cheer them on, knowing it only weakens them, hastening the end.

    People fight for family and community. People long to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Do we have families and communities anymore? Do we have anything other than cartoonish skin-deep identity groups united only by the crassest common interests to align ourselves with?

    Europe found the solution to the Jews that no country wanted. They created Israel so all Jews could ‘voluntarily’ move there. That has contributed to the decrease of antisemitism in the world. As the USA and Europe inundated the artificially fabricated country with money, it allowed it to survive despite its revolted natives and the uncompromising neighbors
    An 90 old lady told me: These blacks in the USA, when are they finally going back home?
    Indians were simply massacred but nowadays the’ moral’ USA can’t massacre Blacks and Latinos to get rid of them
    Maybe the USA should carve a country in Africa, the same as Israel was carved and through financial and identity insentives encourage willing blacks to move there for “a better life”. Same with Latino emigrants. Nation building by pouring money on these fabricated countries would be more rewarding that to support them in the USA
    Then the White West can survive.

    It's an important column. The way things are headed, Pat's framing of the border issue may be exactly the way the issue has to be framed.

    Perhaps it was just an oversight, but The American Conservative -- that posts Pat's syndicated columns every Tuesday and Friday -- has NOT YET POSTED this Pat Buchanan column.

    The American Conservative — …— has NOT YET POSTED this Pat Buchanan column.

    why would anyone visit that disgraced den of servile cowards?

    TAC is a used cum rag, only with less dignity.

    (a cum rag had very few chances to achieve anything more, whereas the editors of the TAC could have been men, but decided to lick shekels off the floor of their benefactors)

    they, and their rag, are the deserving heirs to the legacy of George Will. So wanting to earn the favor of the man whose pockets clink with shekels, that they’d shove a blade into Pat Buchanan (and Philip Giraldi and others) backs, who they’re not worthy to even polish the shoes of. Unless it’s with their forked tongues.

    The TAC is to conservatism as the Vatican pedophiles are to Catholicism.

    Or the British elites are to the traditions of Merry Olde

    or CNN is to the truth.

    they profane the very notions of conservatism by acting as its most treacherous and duplicitous enemy, by pretending to be ‘one of us’.

    By playing that role that Cicero warned us all of.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    only because they know Pat has legions of readers. And they're perfectly willing to ride on the coattails of their betters.

    I would counsel any and all actual conservatives (as opposed to the neocon sludge at TAC), to avoid that rag if possible. Clicking on their link only emboldens them, as they denounce the heroic few who're willing to speak truth to power.

    They're like the Republican lickspittles with their hands down Sheldon Adelson's pant's pockets, pooh-poohing Les Deplorables for our deplorability.


    Jeb is one of them. A cuckservative in good standing. He should be their mascot.

    Or Marco or McStain or Paul Ryan or any of the other traitors to conservative values. The American Cuckservative is their mouth piece.

    If I want to read kosher analysis, I can always go to Moveon.ass, or Huffington or the Post or the JYT. They are ubiquitous. So if a webzine styles itself as the 'American Conservative', and then demonizes heroic men like Phil Giraldi, for telling the simple truth, then fuck them.

    If they want to publish Buchanan, he should charge them exorbitant fees for the privilege.

    The sooner that stinking cum rag dies an ignoble death, as a warning to all the other would be traitors and cowards, the better.

    IMHO.

    ‘IT’S A HUMAN RIGHT’ — MEXICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CALLS FOR MASS EXODUS TO AMERICA
    5:45 PM 06/22/2018
    Dominic Mancini | Reporter


    Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans.

    “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Barbara Spectre Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

    He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

    While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far the frontrunner. (RELATED: Mag: Mexican Official Dreams Of Trump Assassination, But Most Urge Prudence)
