Memo From Middle America | It’s No Joke—Russian-Style Cross-Border Ethnic Meddling Is Coming To America. In Fact, It’s Already Here.

The crisis in Ukraine illustrates the rise of ethnic politics and secession—and mass Mexican immigration into America means it is coming here. Conservatives treat this as fodder for satire today, but it will be in the headlines tomorrow.

Ukraine and Russia are attempting to protect their interests and the key weapon has been ethnic populations. Crimea’s referendum contained irregularities, but what’s undeniable is that the ethnic composition of the population resulted in support for a union with Russia. Though they may have been technically citizens of Ukraine, many Crimeans were Russians in heart and spirit and when the status quo collapsed, the Bear was able to exploit it.

Of course, American Exceptionalism holds that rules just don’t apply to us. Thus on March 23, a piece appeared on the The Daily Caller entitled Mexico sees Russian gambit in Ukraine as chance for American land grab, by Eric Owens, labeled “satire”:Plainly Marked Satire

On Friday, in Geneva, Mexico signaled alarm at the treatment of its large Mexican minority in the United States, comparing American actions to prevent the use of Spanish to attempts in Ukraine and Estonia to prevent the use of Russian…

Russia has maintained that annexation of the Crimea peninsula is justified because it has the right to protect Russian speakers outside of Russia’s borders. Mexican political leaders have taken note, perhaps sensing an opportunity to gain long-lost territory and increase the size of its economy by expanding northward into areas currently administered by the United States.

Mexico has begun enthusiastically supporting protections for linguistic minorities, a Mexico City diplomat told the United Nations Human Rights Council. “Language must not be used to segregate and isolate groups,” the diplomat said, according to details provided to The Daily Caller by the U.N. Mexico has officially expressed concern about “steps taken in this regard by belligerent elements in the United States.”…The Mexican diplomat then forthrightly compared the treatment of Mexicans in the United States to the treatment of Russian speakers in Ukraine. Mexico, the diplomat said, has the right to protect Spanish speakers who have migrated without documentation to the United States in search of economic opportunity. He further noted that, unlike in Ukraine, these migrants very often remain full Mexican citizens.

Owens’ article was patterned on a March 19 Reuters article by Robert Evans: Moscow signals concern for Russians in Estonia:

“Russia signaled concern on Wednesday at Estonia’s treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority, comparing language policy in the Baltic state with what it said was a call in Ukraine to prevent the use of Russian. Russia has defended its annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula by arguing it has the right to protect Russian-speakers outside its borders, so the reference to linguistic tensions in another former Soviet republic comes at a highly sensitive moment"

But Owens’ satire cited actions and statements similar to things the Mexican government has already actually done and said.

In Ukraine, you had the volatile mix of

  1. A large ethnic-Russian minority, dominant in certain regions of the country.
  2. A meddlesome neighboring county, with which this minority identifies.
  3. A change of government in the Ukraine and a breakdown in relations between Ukraine and Russia.

In America, you have:

  1. A large Mexican minority, increasingly resistant to assimilation, and pandered to by the government.
  2. A neighboring country, Mexico, which meddles in American politics and works to retain or attract the loyalty of the Mexican-American minority.
  3. A change in the American government, which no longer demands assimilation and now promotes non-assimilation.

Mexico openly tries to manipulate its neighbor by using its expatriate population

Ann Coulter: What You Won't Read In The Papers About The 'Central Park Five'

[See also “It Was Fun”—Robert K. Tanenbaum vs. The Central Park Five, 25 Years Later, and Peter Brimelow's 1989 London Times reaction Beasts In The Park]

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is demanding a quick settlement of the lawsuit brought by the five men convicted of one of the most sickening crimes in the city's history: the attack on the Central Park jogger in 1989.

The plaintiffs are demanding $50 million apiece—for going to prison for a rape that they committed, as detailed in Chapter 13 of "Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Destroying America." Abner Louima got $5.8 million for a shockingly brutal police assault on him, and he was just an innocent bystander. Ann Coulter

The "Central Park Five," as PBS documentarian Ken Burns has dubbed them, aren't exactly Emmett Till (as Burns would have you believe). Even if they were innocent of the Central Park rape, which they aren't, the reason they were originally arrested was that they were rampaging through the park, assaulting people.

Even after they began denying the rape, the defendants continued to admit committing these other attacks. How'd you like to be one of the people badly beaten in the park that night watching your tax dollars go to pay your assailants millions of dollars?

All those convictions—on the rape as well as the assaults—have been vacated because an aging district attorney wanted a glowing obituary in The New York Times.

In 2002, the ancient Robert Morgenthau, Manhattan district attorney, issued a report recommending that the convictions in the Central Park rape case be vacated. Justice Charles Tejada (Fordham Law 2009 Hispanic Heritage Award winner!) granted his request.

Liberals are opposed to rape in the abstract, but when it comes to actual rapists, they're all for them.

The D.A.'s report was based solely on the confession of Matias Reyes, career criminal, serial rapist and murderer. Reyes had absolutely nothing to lose by confessing to the rape—the statute of limitations

Now The $Lave Power Wants To Hand U.S. Defense Jobs To Low-Cost Foreigners

The appalling Jeb Bush is continuing his campaign to destroy the historic American nation, demanding that corporations receive more “H1-B visas for the high tech industry.” [Jeb Bush pushes amnesty, more high-tech visas at education conference, by Tony Lee, Breitbart, April 22, 2014] His fellow propagandists for the Slave Power are already advancing the perfect argument to justify it—national security is now just another job that Americans won’t do.  

At any other time and in any other country, the idea that weapons research should be outsourced to foreigners would be the definition of treason. But America is no longer a nation, and so we get corporate lobbyist Gary Shapiro [email him] of the Consumer Electronics Association in the Washington Post lecturing Americans on why they need to do more to safeguard the defense industry’s taxpayer guaranteed profits. Shapiro’s spiel was less an Op-Ed than a paid corporate advertisement—but with today’s Main Stream Media, who can tell the difference?

Encouraging bright minds to stay in the United States after graduation, grow businesses and create jobs is critical to secure our country’s position as a high-tech hub and global leader in innovation. It’s also important to our national security.

…Many of the tools we need to keep our country safe are born of the minds of tech innovators. But political leaders appear to have given little thought to the national security ramifications of inaction on this issue. It’s time for our politicians to drop their protectionist rhetoric and allow those who come to the United States to study and earn graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields to stay, grow businesses and create.

Our nation’s defense capabilities are increasingly dependent on the latest advances in science and technology. Too often we take for granted that the United States has the world’s most sophisticated communications, weaponry and aerospace technology and equipment. When we lose STEM students, we lose access to their future innovations. Sending top STEM talent away based on outdated immigration laws may actually be putting us in danger.

[How Immigration Reform Could Boost Our National Defense, March 21, 2014]

Needless to say, the blessings of diversity seem not to have touched the higher ranks of the Consumer Electronics Association. The Executive Board has five white men and two white women. (The two women are the Treasurer and Secretary.) And if there is one place where “protectionismshould have a place, it is in discussions of national security.  

But what is more disturbing is how Shapiro seemingly ignored any downsides to blithely entrusting military technology to foreigners. The United States is already facing a crisis of Chinese military and corporate espionage. [ Confidential report lists U.S. weapons system designs compromised by Chinese cyberspies, by Ellen Nakashima, Washington Post, May 27, 2013] And of course, “top STEM talent” studying in America constitute a big part of this effort.

Shapiro also made claims that simply aren’t true. For example, he said:

… [L]ast June the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform legislation by a vote of 68-32. The legislation included provisions allowing immigrants with advanced STEM degrees to become U.S. citizens. Yet the legislation now languishes in the House. Republicans are concerned about leaving enforcement of overall immigration legislation to a president they feel selectively enforces laws. More, they fear Tea Party retribution

The Toxic Loves of Jeb Bush: Amnesty and Crony Capitalism

 So it’s official: the GOP donor class will nominate Jeb Bush for president in 2016. Robert Shrum says so! [Why the GOP Needs a Return to the Bush Leagues, Daily Beast, April 21, 2014].  Who can the GOP trust better than a veteran Democratic campaign consultant?

But in fact, Jeb Bush will be a toxic asset by the time the primary season begins, because of his two loves: Amnesty and Crony Capitalism—the latter amply illustrated by yesterday’s New York Times hit piece Jeb Bush’s Rush to Make Money May Be Hurdle [by Michael Barbaro, April 20, 2014].

Amnesty is already a problem for Bush after he claimed that illegal immigration is “an act of love.” [Jeb Bush: Crossing the Border Illegally an 'Act of Love', Breitbart TV, April 6, 2014]. It was reportedly the reason his name was booed at the recent New Hampshire Freedom Summit [Jeb Bush Was Public Enemy No. 1 At One Of The Year's Biggest Conservative Gatherings, by Brett Logiurato, Business Insider, April 14, 2014].

 But Bush also used the word “love” in a much more significant part of his trashy speech, when he made this stunning admission:

The great number of people who come to this country come because they have no opportunities in other places. They may love their country, but they come here because they want to provide for their families. And they can make a contribution to our country if we actually organized ourselves in a better way.

Emphasis added. It was this second mention of “love” that should forever brand Jeb Bush as a traitor.  Even though he admits that immigrants are devoted to a different country, he still wants them here in large numbers.

Does he have a national death wish? Or is he simply an idiot?

American patriots should be grateful that Jeb Bush has provided proof of what the multiculti Republicans secretly understand: many of today’s immigrants are committed to their home nations, not to the United States. Some of them can’t even resist their disloyalty during the Olympics.

Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…A Police State Boston Marathon

Ray Kelly, former New York Police Commissioner, told ABC’s “This Week” today that he’s worried about a “copycat” bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday (April 21) but that the Massachusetts authorities police state-style clampdown is “everything they can reasonably do.”[Ray Kelly worries about Boston Marathon 'copycat' attack, by Jennifer Epstein, POLITICO, April 20, 2014.] That, of course, is because neither Kelly nor anyone else in the Ruling Class wants to mention the obvious: the Boston Bombing was yet another case of Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome—jihad department—and the ultimate answer is an immigration cut-off

Significantly, the Main Stream Media has found a way around the immigration dimension of Islamic terror in America: calling it “homegrown terrorism.” This term is now regularly used to describe any Muslim killer wanna-be who didn’t come directly from Jihadistan with orders from a recognized terror group to blow up infidels. The radicalization process implied by the MSM is vague, but somehow young people mysteriously absorb Islamist ideology in this country—so America is at fault, not immigrants!

A Google search in mid-April for Tsarnaev Homegrown Terror got 1.2 million results even though the Boston Bombers were not “homegrown” in any sense of the word, but were immigrants. The Tsarnaev parents and Dzhokhar entered the United States in 2002 as tourists and then successfully claimed asylum. Tamerlan, born in 1986, followed a year later on his own at age 16 when his character was largely formed by living as an ethnic Chechen with his Muslim family in the Caucasus region. In 2012 Tamerlan traveled to Dagestan and remained for six months in an area known for a violent Islamic insurgency. But a spelling error caused the government to miss his return to the US, even though the Russians warned that he was associated with jihadists. [US missed Russia’s Tsarnaev warning due to misspelling, By Reuters, March 26, 2014]

In the real world, almost nobody falls into Islam from reading about it on the internet. The perps are mostly immigrants, first or second generation, who are immersed in the culture of Islam vs. infidels. Even in the case of converts, the new Muslims have responded to a belief system brought to this country by immigrants.

But the MSM’s “homegrown” strategy has another important consequence: it makes Americans more accepting of intrusive security, as memory fades that such extreme measures were not always the norm.

And this year’s Boston Marathon security is really extreme. Unlike the New York City Marathon, which occurs within the boroughs of the city, the Boston Marathon is run through eight separate municipalities, requiring a much more elaborate regional effort, involving 3,500 police officers and National Guard members including undercover agents. [Security plan 'significantly enhanced' by Jack McCluskey, ESPN, April 16, 2014]

The runners themselves now have many restrictions, according to the Boston Athletic Association. Prohibited items include: Backpacks, glass containers, any container capable of carrying more than 1 liter of liquid, strollers, suitcases & rolling bags, personal hydration system products (such as CamelBak®, Thor®, etc), weight vests or any sort of vest with pockets, costumes covering the face or any non-form fitting bulky outfits extending beyond the perimeter of the body, props (including sporting equipment and military and fire/gear and signs or flags larger than 11 inches x 17 inches), any item larger than 5 inches x 15 inches x 5 inches.

Strollers and backpacks will be permitted for spectators, but anyone who looks sketchy will be questioned.

Professional sports make especially appealing targets for Allah’s gangsters because of the thousands of potential victims plus MSM coverage. As a result, pro baseball and football games are now security zones where spectators are frisked to check for bombs, guns or poison. The bigger the event, the worse the threat, and the more invasive the security.

The 2014 Super Bowl, played in MetLife Stadium near New York City, required an army of police to protect the arena. One hundred law enforcement agencies worked for two years to develop a comprehensive security plan for the game. [Plan for Super Bowl safety covers stadium, entire region By Karen Sudol, The Record, January 26, 2014] Four thousand private and government officers were assigned to the big game. [Protection Package: 4,000 Security Officers To Work Super Bowl XLVIII, CBS, January 15, 2014] The arena was temporarily a 10-mile no-fly zone enforced by Blackhawk helicopters. Bomb-sniffing dogs checked the entire place and fans had to take special buses and trains to the game rather than drive. [Super Bowl 2014 transit: Bus riders avoid mob scene that train riders faced,  by Joseph R. Vena, The Jersey Journal, February 02, 2014] Spectators were very limited in what they could carry—only tiny bags or clear plastic freezer bags. Naturally, all fans were physically screened upon entrance in airport-style security.

Co-host Eric Bolling commented on the April 15 segment of Fox News’s The Five, that it took him (!) an hour and a half to get through Super Bowl security—with a special pass (!!). Regular ticket holders took twice as long.

Another notable example of targeted sports: the 2012 London Summer Olympics. The games turned the city into an armed camp, including military choppers with snipers ready to fly and surface-to-air missiles mounted on neighborhood rooftops.[ London rooftops to carry missiles during Olympic Games, by Robert Booth, theguardian.com, April 29, 2012] The two-week event cost $2 billion for security, largely to protect athletes and spectators from Britain’s famously unfriendly Muslims. [London 2012 Olympics a Terror Target , By Eric Stakelback, CBN.com, July 19, 2012]

Note that nothing like these extreme protective measures were needed for London’s 1948 Games. At that time, the city was un-Islamic and the athletic competition could be freely enjoyed as an element of Western civilization that dates back to ancient Greece. For a nostalgic reminder of a vanished time when sports were free and easy, check out the Daily Mail’s photo-filled article: The 1948 Games: Fascinating images of the last time London hosted the Olympics. . . on a budget of just £70,000.

The Fulford File | War On Easter—Not Imaginary, And Conservatives Didn’t Start It

The Fulford File | War On Easter—Not Imaginary, And Conservatives Didn’t Start It

The graphic above  is from WarOnEaster.org, a website set up by atheist film director Brian Flemming in 2008, to promote a campaign to slip copies of his 2005 documentary, The God Who Wasn't There, into pews and under church doors during the Easter time.

Flemming had purchased 666 copies of his own movie for what might well be described as an ideological/promotional giveaway.

Thus began the "War  on Easter"—with its own website, waroneaster.org.The new site became a hub for a campaign  in which Flemming recruited believers in the film to distribute copies of the DVD to churches  over the upcoming Easter holiday, Handing them to pastors? No, not exactly, Those recruited were intended to place the film surreptitiously—in pew racks, in restrooms, in bushes, by the door,  or in any place where it might later be found with a little effort. Plastic Easter eggs, too, were used for distribution to the younger set; though these would contain messages such as, “Jesus is no more real than the Easter Bunny." Once these trinkets were placed. those recruited  could return to the website and tell the story of how they proudly placed Flemming's markers.  I found this story particularly poignant: 

We got an odd look from a police officer when we were sitting across the street from a  playground in an old brown Chevy Celebrity with a bunch of easter eggs, flyers, and a  lot of liquor in the back seat.  [Easter is lower cased in the original, of course.]

Shattering the Christ Myth By James Patrick Holding, p. 345

So that’s something to think about when you hear, as you do at this time of year, that there’s “No War On Easter”, or “conservatives have now started a War on Easter.” Here’s the latest versions:

But if you want to know about the basic Cultural Marxist War On Easter, all you need to do is search Google News for “Spring Bunny” (673 results) or “Spring Egg” (1270 results ). The Spring Bunny is what was known to everyone, all my life, until just the other day as the Easter Bunny,

“It Was Fun”—Robert K. Tanenbaum vs. The Central Park Five, 25 Years Later

“It Was Fun”—Robert K. Tanenbaum vs. The Central Park Five, 25 Years LaterNew York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio is all set to pay as much as $300 million to the so-called Central Park Five (and, of course, their lawyers). [Central Park Case Settlement Could Cost City Millions,  By Sean Gardiner, WSJ, March 23, 2014] This group of four black and one Hispanic man admitted to and were convicted of beating and sexually abusing/ raping white investment banker Trisha Meili 25 years ago today (April 19, 1989). They were also convicted of separate violent crimes against parkgoers John Loughlin and David Lewis. Their names: Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey/Kharey Wise.(For a contemporary report, see Beasts In The Park, By Peter Brimelow , The Times (London), April 29,  1989.)

The Central Park 5 is a classic case of American Main Stream Media Reverse Reporting, up there with Sally Hemings, Hurricane Katrina, and, perhaps, Joe McCarthy and Clarence Thomas.  In each case, the truth was initially widely known, but crooked “journalists” and “scholars” then lied, again and again, until the lies replaced the truth as the conventional wisdom. (The Duke Rape Hoax saga is similar but differs in that the lie was initially conventional wisdom and then refuted, but now is apparently climbing out of its coffin anyway.)

Immediately after the Jogger defendants had confessed/admitted to the attack, their black supremacist supporters began weaving racial fairy tales—such as that Trisha Meili either had been attacked by her boyfriend or somehow faked the attack altogether; and the confessed attackers were really the victims of a vast racist, white conspiracy to hang the crimes on innocent blacks, the new “Scottsboro Boys” whose confessions had been “coerced.” (The real Scottsboro Boys never confessed to anything.) She is known to blacks and Hispanics as “Patricia Meili,” although she actually went by “Trisha,” because New York’s black newspapers made a point of constantly publishing her legal name.

The confessed/admitted Jogger attackers duly recanted. But between July and December 1990, all five were convicted in split trials marked by outrageous conduct by the attackers’ supporters and relatives.

Their attorneys commented that the defendants had made so many self-incriminating statements that a successful defense was impossible:

Afterward, Mr. Richardson's lawyer, Howard Diller, said he was "shattered."

"They convicted themselves with their own statements," he said. "We could not overcome them."

Colin Moore, the lawyer for Mr. Wise, said his client's "vivid" videotaped statement "proved to be too difficult to overcome."

[2 Teen-Agers Are Convicted in Park Jogger Trial by Ronald Sullivan, New York Times, December 12, 1990.]

The only reason the Central Park 5 case is now being questioned: In November, 2001, after the statute of limitations had passed, a delusional, psychopathic, convicted serial rapist and murderer, Matias Reyes, asserted that he had committed the attack on Trisha Meili all by himself. DNA testing confirmed that he had indeed raped Meili.

But prosecutors had always said one assailant had not been caught.

John Derbyshire: Will Europe’s “Camp Of The Saints” Produce A Humanitarian Crackup?

The one real question in the world today: whether those rights of man that we hold so dear—of certain men, that is—can be preserved at the expense of others. I’ll let you think that one over …

That is the President of France, speaking to ambassadors from other Western nations as his own is being overwhelmed by a flood of illegal immigrants from the Third World.

It is of course fiction, so far at any rate. To be precise, it is Jean Raspail’s 1973 novel The Camp of The Saints, Chapter 34.

I remember thinking when I read Raspail’s book a dozen or so years ago that he had missed the mark—forgivably enough, I suppose, for a writer in the early 1970s (see below). Raspail’s poor Third Worlders coming ashore in Europe are from subcontinental Asia. Wouldn’t they, in the 21st century, more likely be black Africans, I thought?

I thought correctly. India is currently stable and improving. Right now they are having an election—a fair and orderly one by Third World standards. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are politically wobbly but inching forward. The situation in Pakistan remains perpetually “desperate but not serious.”

Meanwhile there are indeed hordes of Third Worlders trying to get into Europe, but they are mostly Africans. The European territories near to Africa—or, in the case of Ceuta and Melilla, tiny Spanish enclaves on the Moroccan coast, actually in Africa—are being besieged by would-be illegal immigrants.

Needless to say, all the Main Stream Media stories about these Mediterranean illegals take a sympathetic line. In a recent Wall Street Journal piece about Ceuta and Melilla, whose boundary fences are Europe’s only land borders with Africa, we read that:

Raymond Persie twisted his ankle when he hit the ground [after scaling a fence into Melilla] and ended up in the custody of Spanish police. Yet those stumbles didn’t cripple his dream of working in Europe and sending money home to his father and younger brother.

 [African Migrants Stream to Spanish Enclaves, by David Román, Wall Street Journal, April 3,2014.]

Is there some sort of universal style rule taught in journo schools that any story about illegal immigration must include the word “dream” at least once?

The subtitle to the Wall Street Journal piece is: “Thousands Fleeing War and Poverty Storm Madrid’s Territories in Morocco, as EU Moves to Fix System.”

The system that needs “fixing” is presumably the system of orderly immigration into the EU—just as, in current U.S. elite-speak, our own system of orderly immigration, as defined by laws enacted by the people’s representatives in Congress duly assembled, needs “reform” rather than firm, efficient enforcement.

There is in fact very little in the WSJ piece about EU efforts. The principal mention of the EU is:

Last month at least 15 West Africans who sought to avoid climbing the barriers drowned while trying to swim to Ceuta, as members of the Guardia Civil fired rubber bullets into the water—a tactic sharply criticized by EU officials and Spanish opposition leaders.

Nor does the WSJ explain why we should sympathize

Tax Day: Americans Pay—Illegal Aliens Get Fraudulent Refunds

Recuperating from the April 15 income tax deadline? Soothe yourself with this: the Main Stream Media  devoted some deserved attention this tax season to the huge tax refund fraud problem—but, as usual, failed to get specific about a key factor: illegal aliens. That’s because the MSM’s allies, the Democrats in government, are gaining enormously from keeping the illegal alien-magnet switch on for as long as possible.

Thus AP recently reported on the “$4 billion” lost every year due to “fraudulent tax refunds.” [$4 billion: Bogus tax refunds a growing problem, By Eric Tucker, USA Today, April 10, 2014]  The story coincided with a recent video produced by the Department of Justice wherein Attorney General Holder reminds us to not worry, they’re on the case. [Attorney General Holder Calls Tax Refund Fraud and Identity Theft a "Rising Threat", April 7, 2014]

The AP report isn’t specific about what types of “fraudulent tax refunds” are in issue, but $4 billion is definitely a low number compared to the total problem.

The Earned Income Tax Credit alone costs taxpayers a whopping $12-$14 billion in fraudulent payments every year. [$13.6 billion lost in bogus Earned Income Tax Credit claims last year,  by: John Hayward, Human Events, October 22, 2013]

This is especially troubling considering the program pays out in total $56 billion per year—meaning its average “improper payments rate,” as reported by Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (PDF) is around 25 per cent. In contrast, Medicaid fraud, which is very well publicized and has its own federal task force, hovers at around 8-10 per cent a year.

More troubling still: the EITC is the government’s fastest growing entitlement program. Since its start in 1980 the program’s grown 44-fold.[ Defrauding the American Taxpayer, By Edwin S. Rubenstein, The Social Contract, March 20,2013] Compare this to the 8.5x increase in total entitlement spending in the same period.

The credit, which pays out up to $5,800 to a family of three,

Ann Coulter: Don't Primary Republicans —Unless They're For Amnesty!

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a RepublicanAs those of you who follow my hate mail know, I am opposed to running untested candidates against perfectly good incumbent Republican senators this election cycle. It will be a long time before Republicans have as good a year as this to win a Senate majority.

Unfortunately, we have idiots doing the idiot thing, pretending to be "tea partiers," while challenging sitting Republican senators over fairly minor ideological differences. 

Anyone opposing an incumbent Republican for any reason other than amnesty is a fraud or an idiot. Right now, immigration and Obamacare are the only things that matter. Since every Republican voted against Obamacare, that leaves only immigration. 

Conservatives who ignore amnesty while carping about the debt ceiling, TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program), the Internet tax bill or Benghazi are too stupid to help their country. 

Suppose the Senate had passed a bill that would cut Texas out of the Union? Would that get your attention, fake tea partiers? Without Texas, Republicans would immediately lose 38 electoral votes, two senators and 24 members of Congress. (Democrats would lose only 12 House members.) 

How would you rate the prospect of repealing Obamacare if Republicans could: never win another presidential election; never win another majority in the House; and never again win a Senate majority? Oh, and how does the expression "President Nancy Pelosi" grab you? 

Would that bill be slightly more important to you than the Internet tax bill? 

Well, guess what? Amnesty will produce the exact same result as losing the entire state of Texas. In fact, merely continuing our current immigration policies will achieve the same result; it will just take a little longer. (But wow, I'm sure glad we got "Octomom"! What a boon she's been  to our American way of life.) 

The population of Texas is about 27 million. With amnestied illegal aliens allowed to bring in their cousins and brothers-in-law under our insane "family reunification" policies, the 12 million illegal immigrants already here will quickly balloon to 30 million new voters—who happen to break 8-to-2 for the Democrats.

Consequently, before running off and staging a primary fight against a sitting Republican, anyone who truly loved his country would ask himself the following three questions: 

(1) Does the incumbent Republican support amnesty? And by the way, "Supports amnesty" includes anyone who says one of the following: 

(2) Is a primary challenge unlikely to flip a Republican seat to the Democrats? 

(3) Am I fairly certain the challenger is smart enough

Sorry, Harry Reid—America Is No Longer A Nation Of Laws. In Fact, It’s No Longer A Nation

“It’s not over,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been quoted as saying about the Cliven Bundy “Ranch War” showdown in Nevada.  After all, Reid says, “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then walk away from it” —despite the real risk of another Waco or Ruby Ridge . [Sen. Reid on Cattle Battle, KRNV-DT News 4, April 14, 2014. Emphasis added].

Reid’s new-found concern for the rule of law comes too late. America is no longer a nation of laws, but an empire of “Diversity,” where the law is a meaningless fiction if it gets in the way of Political Correctness.

Obamacare is the outstanding and notorious example. No one knows what the law actually means anymore. President Obama has made many unilateral changes to the implementation of health care legislation, including moving deadlines, extending hardship waivers, and granting exemptions to politically important constituencies (like unions). [40 changes to Obamacare…so far, by Tyler Hartsfield and Grace-Marie Turner, Galen Institute, March 26, 2014. Originally “27 Changes,” updated to “40 changes,” April 8, 2014]  

Of course, Republicans like House Speaker John Boehner and Senator Mike Lee have protested Obama’s actions. Lee has been quoted as saying: “We have a government of one… He is violating the Constitution.” [Obama Has Unilaterally Changed or Delayed Obamacare 24 times, by Rob Bluey, Heritage Foundation, February 17, 2014] But even though Conservatism Inc. talking heads like Charles Krauthammer jeer on Fox News that the law is “whatever [Obama] thinks,” there seem to be no consequences for this flagrant violation of the Presidential oath.

One discreditable reason: Republicans are gun-shy about challenging any legislation that is popular with minorities. And President Obama’s health care legislation continues to enjoy a disproportionate amount of support among Hispanics and especially among blacks. Even during a time of collapsing approval for the Affordable Care Act, 77% of blacks approve of the law, and only 18% disapprove. A small plurality of Hispanics favor the law, while over sixty percent of whites oppose it. [ACA at age 4: More Disapproval than Approval, PEW Research Center, March 20, 2014]

And these figures reflect a low point of Obamacare approval, something which is already changing because of Democrats coming home to support the law. [ABC/WaPo poll: Democratic support for Obamacare surges, plurality of public now supports the law,” HotAir, March 31, 2014]

As many as 61% of Hispanics, compared to 47% of Americans overall, believe it is the government’s responsibility to ensure health care coverage. So Hispanic support for the law, and for President Obama, can be expected to increase, especially because some of their opposition is driven by anger that the President was not being liberal enough. [Support for Obama, health care law has eroded among Hispanics, by Jens Manuel Krogstad and Seth Motel, PEW Research Center, March 27, 2014]

While the Republican Party may gripe that Obama is breaking the law,

Richeson [Email her](an African-American) shows why [On the Precipice of a “Majority-Minority” America: Perceived Status Threat From the Racial Demographic Shift Affects White Americans’ Political Ideology, Psychological Science April 3, 2014]. Shockingly, it turns out that the great majority of white Americans are not at all like neocon Ben Wattenberg who famously asserted that “The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality.” [The Good News Is The Bad News Is Wrong, p. 84.] In fact, white Americans are afraid of becoming a minority. Being told about their impending minority status provokes whites to endorse attitudes linked to the political Right.

The title of the Craig-Richeson paper is itself interesting. The standard dictionary definition of “precipice” is "the brink of a dangerous or disastrous situation"—which is exactly what Cassandras have been saying about the impending minority status of whites. Giving up majority status in a democracy has obvious grave implications. No ethnic group in history has ever voluntarily become a minority. Israel, for example, is fixated on Palestinian birthrates and absolutely opposed to a “Right of Return” for dispossessed Palestinians. Given that Palestinians are already a majority in the "de facto state of Israel," a one-state solution would mean that, if Israel remained a democracy, the Palestinians would govern. And that would mean the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

Being a minority is always problematic given the reality of ethnic conflict throughout history. This is particularly so when groups harbor historical grudges (e.g., slavery and Jim Crow for African Americans, anti-Semitism for Jews). It is especially worrisome in the case of America because the grievance industry promoted by elites in the MSM, the legal profession, and   academe systematically blames “White racism” for all the problems of non-Whites.

It's one thing to be demonized when you are the majority, but a far different thing when you are the minority.

Needless to say, despite Craig-Richeson’s use of the word “precipice”, they do not view whites’ impending minority status as problematic. Indeed, they are eager suggest ways to make Whites complacent about their impending status.

The theoretical framework for the Craig-Richeson paper emphasizes the general finding that people who feel threatened tend to adopt more conservative views. Studies show that whites adopt more conservative political views not only after terrorist events like 9/11, but also when they live closer to black Americans:

[A]n analysis of voter-registration data for Louisiana parishes revealed that the larger the percentage of Blacks in a parish, the greater the percentage of Whites who were registered as Republicans and the lower the percentage of Whites who were registered as Democrats.

But it's still very easy for most Whites to avoid the costs of diversity and multiculturalism—"out of sight, out of mind." The Craig-Richeson study reinforces this observation.

In their first experiment, subjects (all experiments used only whites) were told that California had become a "majority minority" state, while control subjects were told that there were now approximately as many Hispanics as blacks in the US. The experimental subjects reported they leaned more toward the Republican Party and toward more conservative opinions, and this effect was increased among subjects who lived closer to California.

In other words, people living in rural Nebraska, small town Montana or even Portland, Oregon are less worried about the disaster that is unfolding in California and many other

WASHINGTON POST, Refugee Industry, Now Pushing Syrian Resettlement

The top newspaper in our capital city, the Washington Post, is mouthpiecing a Refugee Industry campaign to convince Congress to welcome thousands of Syrians fleeing their civil war. But you can bet they won’t be resettled in Georgetown.

On April 4, WaPo front-paged the suffering Syrians story, with kiddie photos prominent, blatantly written to manipulate emotions:

 WASHINGTON POST, Refugee Industry, Now Pushing Syrian Resettlement

BEIRUT — It was 10 p.m. on a chilly recent Wednesday, and the bars of Beirut were just getting into full swing. So was 10-year-old Mohammed Huzaifa’s working day.

Clutching a vase of red roses, he scoured the outdoor tables for a soft­hearted target. Spotting two women deep in conversation, the round-faced boy sidled up and broke into a wide smile, but was motioned away with a sharp shake of the head.

Mohammed, shivering in an orange T-shirt, repeated the steps with other potential customers until he had sold all 10 of his flowers. A beating from his mother awaits him if he doesn’t sell out, he says, so he often roams the streets until 3 a.m.

John Derbyshire On John Glad’s FUTURE HUMAN EVOLUTION: EUGENICS IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

Future Human Evolution: Eugenics in the Twenty-First CenturyThe contradiction between the vigorous, unapologetic ethnonationalism of Jews in Israel and the horror of other peoples’ ethnonationalism expressed by Jews elsewhere has been a recurrent topic here on VDARE.com—see, most recently, Is Immigration Really A ‘Jewish Value’? by Kevin MacDonald.

I think this contradiction is not hard to understand. If you are the ethnic majority in a nation, it is natural to wish to maintain the dominance of your ethny; if you belong to a minority ethny, especially one with as sorrowful a history as the Jews, it is just as natural to be hostile to the dominance of any other.

But these simple truths need restating, because the very peculiar cultural history of the Western world through the past few decades, leading to the widespread state of mind among whites that I call ethnomasochism, has made them nonobvious.

Cooper Sterling, writing, three years ago on VDARE.com, described a different, but related, contradiction—he used the word “paradox”—also concerning Jews.

Since the 1960s, a prominent group of Jewish public intellectuals has been systematically and unscrupulously campaigning to discredit eugenics—but, in a great paradox, other Jewish intellectuals, and Zionists, have been actively interested in eugenic principles, both historically and currently, to secure the posterity—health and wellbeing—of Jews. Collectively, it amounts to a case of Do As I Say—Not As I Do.

‘Do As I Say’: The Paradox Of Eugenics And The Jews.”

Sterling was summarizing the thesis of a book: Jewish Eugenics, by John Glad.

Glad is a retired Professor of Russian Studies with a distinguished career as a scholar and author. He describes himself in the preface to Jewish Eugenics as “a dyed-in-the-wool universalist” with a long-standing, but not racially-oriented, interest in eugenics.

The main text of Jewish Eugenics—ignoring the bibliography, indices, and front matter—covers 377 pages. It has its origin in an earlier and much shorter book, Future Human Evolution: Eugenics in the Twenty-First Century (2006), which has a mere 111 pages of text.

That earlier, shorter book is the one I’ve just been reading, so this column is a companion to Cooper Sterling’s 2011 review of Jewish Eugenics. Both books, Future Human Evolution and Jewish Eugenics, are available in printed-and-bound format or as free downloads from John Glad’s website.

Future Human Evolution is, as its subtitle tells you, about eugenics in all generality. Only seven of its pages (35-6 and 83-7) are concerned with the Jews, so in writing the later book, Glad expanded that particular topic an impressive 54 times.

Needless to say, in the intellectual culture of the world today, “eugenics” is a scare word, at the sound of which goodthinkful persons are supposed to jump up on chairs, shriek, and clutch their skirts. I admire John Glad for approaching his subject matter calmly and without apology.

He works hard to point out that the obloquy that attaches t

“Pulling A Williamson” —Brendan Eich And Conservatism Inc’s Culture War Collapse

America’s Cultural Marxist Left hates Conservatism Inc. and regularly claims that is racist, sexist, etc. Significantly, however, Conservatism Inc. doesn’t fight back by denouncing Political Correctness as such—instead, it merely seeks to show the criticism is hypocritical, which only ends up strengthening the Left by conceding the validity of the original charge. You can call this reverse political jujitsu “pulling a Williamson” —after National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson, who has made a specialty of it.

Look at the most recent result of a half century of standing athwart history crying “retreat!”: the auto-da-fé of tech innovator Brendan Eich. Eich was forced to step down as the CEO of Mozilla, because he donated $1,000 to California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8 in 2008. [Brendan Eich resigns as Mozilla Corporation CEO, by Sam Machkovech, ArsTechnica, April 3, 2014] Prop. 8 won, but, as our ruling class allows no input from the American people on important issues, was subsequently blocked by Judge Stephen Reinhardt, an appointee of Jimmy Carter (“history’s greatest monster”—The Simpsons.) It survives as the “H8” “anti-hate” motif on Leftist Tumblrs, blogs, and social networking sites

Of course, Barack Obama said marriage was between a “man and a woman” in 2004 and his position on the issue was still “evolving” as late as the 2012 campaign. [Timeline of Obama’s ‘Evolving’ on Same-Sex Marriage, by Devin Dwyer, ABC News, May 9, 2012]. But the goalposts of “social justice” are ever shifting, and many in the Main Stream Media hailed the destruction of yet another Enemy of the People. Still, Andrew Sullivan, who has fought for gay marriage for decades, did capture the reaction of many moderates when he says “if this is the gay rights movement today… then count me out.” [The Hounding of a Heretic, The Dish, April 3, 2014]

This was a hanging curve for the Beltway Right—and, tellingly, Williamson missed it. [The Liberal Gulag, National Review, April 6, 2014].

He started predictably, criticizing “so-called progressives” for their desire to criminalize dissent, recalling not just L’Affaire Eich, but Gawker contributor Adam Weinstein’s call to criminalize global-warming “deniers,” and the recent exclusion of conservative reporter Katherine Timpf from a feminist conference. “Welcome to the liberal gulag,” he wrote.

But falling back on the strained charge of “liberal fascism” misses the point. Of course the Left doesn’t believe in free speech, has grown intellectual lazy, and its driving force is “[protecting] their intellects, such as they are, from the discomfort of contact with nonconformist ideas.” But what Williamson, Goldberg, and other Conservatism Inc. publicists don’t get: the Left’s ideology is perfectly consistent by their own standards.

And, more importantly, Conservatism Inc. does the exact same thing that it decries in liberals—just with a delay of a few years.

For example, Williamson is disingenuous when he writes that Charles Murray was “denounced as a ‘known white supremacist’ by Texas Democrats” for holding heterodox views on education policy” and earning the ire of the Southern Poverty Law Center. [Candidate for Texas Governor Invokes Man Who Believes Women and Minorities Are Inferior, by Laura Basset, Huffington Post, April 1, 2014] Actually, Murray was denounced for believing in the reality of IQ differences among different groups. His “heterodox views on education policy” are much the same as Robert Weissberg’s—whom National Review purged! Editor Rich Lowry even thanked the Leftists who alerted him to Weissberg’s heresy.

Similarly, Williamson says “the Left is coming around—again—on hating Jews, even if Occupy rituals have replaced the traditional pseudo-Roman salute.” [Links in original].

This would probably be news to Adam Weinstein or the rest of the gang

The Legacy of Obama's Illegal Alien Aunt Zeituni

The Legacy of Obama's Illegal Alien AuntZeituni Onyango, President Obama's illegal alien aunt, died this week of cancer and other complications. I hope she rests in peace. America, however, should be up in arms.

Auntie Zeituni is an enduring symbol of all that is wrong with this country's immigration "policy"—or rather, its complete lack of a coherent, enforceable system of laws and rules that puts the national interest first. She was a beneficiary of the welfare state run amok, enabled by bipartisan fecklessness. To the bitter end, she bit the hand that fed her with predictable ingratitude and metastatic entitlement.

Zeituni's 14-year illegal overstay is a reminder that our temporary visa program is an abysmal joke. Like millions of foreign students, business people and tourists to this country, Auntie Zeituni obtained a short-term visitor visa in 2000. It had an expiration date. She was supposed to go back to Kenya in two years after traveling here with her son, who had been accepted at a college in Boston.

But like millions of other "temporary" visa overstayers, Auntie Zeituni never went home. And despite billions spent on homeland security and immigration enforcement, no one ever went looking for her to kick her out of the country after her time was up.

Auntie Zeituni had no job skills, no special talent, no compelling reason to keep her here in America as an asset to our culture or our economy. She didn't value the American Dream. She was a dependency nightmare. She collected $700 a month in welfare benefits and disability payments totaling $51,000. Somehow, Auntie Zeituni also drummed up money to apply for asylum and finagled her way into both federal and state public housing in Boston.

She contributed nothing to this country. The only "work" she did was gaming the system, complaining about her lot and blaming everyone else for her problems while they subsidized her 14-year illegal overstay.

Auntie Zeituni's ridiculous asylum application and what happened afterward are reminders that our asylum and deportation systems are appalling jokes. Auntie Zeituni's bogus request was rejected by the immigration court system. A judge ordered her to return to Kenya in 2003. She appealed. She lost. A judge again ordered her to leave in 2004.

But Auntie Zeituni never went home. Like an estimated 700,000 other deportation absconders, she evaded the judicial order for nearly a half-dozen years and continued to feed

Indianapolis: Shooting By Black Teen Starts “Conversation” About NRA Convention, But Not Black Expo

Just another day in urban America:

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested and charged as an adult with the senseless murder of a 24-year-old newlywed and father-to-be while he was taking a walk last week in Indiana.

Simeon Adams was found hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his neck only hours after the fatal shooting of Nathan Trapuzzano on April 1, according to Indianapolis police.

The software engineer who was expecting his first child next month was taking a morning walk just before 6 a.m. when Adams allegedly shot him twice in a suspected robbery.

Police arrest 16-year-old boy in murder of newlywed, father-to-be in Indianapolis  By Nina Golgowski, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, April 8, 2014

And just another idiot Main Stream Media response:

Think about this: Indianapolis has seen another rash of homicides this year, the vast majority of them tied to guns….This city should be waging a war against the illegal possession of guns; instead, we get relative silence.

Speaking of crime, what I would do for an elected leader in this community to lead an honest conversation about what it truly will take to address the problem. We need hundreds of new police officers, as well as a substantial upgrade in prisoner re-entry programs, and both will cost dollars. Big dollars.

It’s worth it. But our top leaders need to make that sale, and they need to be willing to talk about spending and taxes regardless of the political consequences.

Tully: Indy avoids hard conversations about guns, violence, by Matthew Tully, [Email him]Indianapolis Star, April 8. 2014

Actually, what Indianapolis needs is an “honest conversation” about race. But it’s not going to happen, despite (or perhaps because of) the fact that it’s one of the very few big cities to have a Republican Mayor (Greg Ballard, Message him on Twitter).

Unmentioned in either MSM story: of course, the victim was white. Of course, the alleged perp was black.

The victim, Nathan Trapuzzano, with his widow, and unborn child.

Simeon Adams—the (allegedly, for legal reasons) shooter.

The victim, Nathan Trapuzzano, with his widow, and unborn child.

Simeon Adams—the (allegedly, for legal reasons) shooter.

 

The backstory here: despite its Middle American image, Indianapolis is suffering increasing white flight. The European-American population has dropped from 76 percent in 1990 to 58 percent today.  

Significantly, Indianapolis this year is home to two conferences: both the National Rifle Association, April 25-27—and an annual Indiana Black Expo. July 10-20.  The city government has apparently been refusing to advertise the NRA conference—but it is celebrating the Black Expo from the highest levels

Needless to say, the city government is also far more involved in the Black Expo in another way—providing massive amounts of security and a huge propaganda campaign aimed at preventing attendees from killing each other. 

Also needless to say, despite the Main Stream Media’s loathing for guns and (more importantly) for gun owners, there seem to be absolutely no security concerns over the NRA conference, which bring an estimated 70,000 gun enthusiasts to the city. But—

Visit Indy, the city's tourism arm, normally, promotes its convention bookings. But it has yet to publicize the NRA gathering—an event that has sparked public protests, tight police security and calls to go elsewhere.

[Indianapolis low key about NRA convention, by Jeff Swiatek, The Indianapolis Star, January 21, 2014]

In fact, the city’s officials signed the deal to host the convention back in

Casino Boss And Amnesty Tout Sheldon Adelson: Competition For Thee, But Not For Me

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a RepublicanBetween having Republican presidential candidates fly to Las Vegas to kiss his ring, billionaire Sheldon Adelson has managed to fit in time to talk Sen. Lindsey Graham into sponsoring a bill banning Internet gambling. 

As you may know, Sheldon Adelson is a CASINO OWNER. Internet gambling would compete with his casino business. 

On the other hand, when it comes to the services Adelson isn't selling, but buying—low-skilled workers—he's for unbridled competition, preferring not to limit the supply even to people who are legally in the United States. (Weirdly, so is Lindsey Graham.)

Adelson is a big backer of amnesty, telling The Wall Street Journal: "It would be inhumane to send those people back, to send 12 million people out of this country. ... So we've got to find a way, find a route for those people to get legal citizenship." 

As Milton Friedman said, "With some notable exceptions, businessmen favor free enterprise in general but are opposed to it when it comes to themselves." 

Adelson is an especially telling example of the self-interest of businessmen on immigration. His newspaper, Israel Today, the largest newspaper in Israel, is wildly patriotic on immigration (and everything else). 

Israel Today has trumpeted the success of the 15-foot razor-wire fence along Israel's 140-mile border with Egypt, triumphantly noting last August that, for the first time, "no infiltrations were recorded from the Egyptian border, compared to 193 from the same month last year." 

Adelson himself had suggested just such a policy to the Los Angeles Times last year, saying he wanted to "Put a big fence around our country." 

By "our country," he, of course, meant Israel. In America, he wants illegal immigrants pouring across the border

GOP Finally Noticing Obama Regime Lawlessness—But Administrative Amnesty Expanding To Criminals

Almost three years after I wrote Obama Regime's Administrative Amnesty: Impeachment Is The Only Answer, the issue of White House lawlessness is finally, half-heartedly, being noticed in Congress:

  • House Speaker John Boehner has just blamed it for his inability to get “immigration reform” a.k.a. the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge past his own caucus:

Obama has been pressured by Democrats to use executive powers to slow deportations and make de facto reforms to immigration, something Boehner warned would derail any efforts entirely.

“That will make it almost impossible to ever do immigration reform, because he will spoil the well to the point where no one will trust him by giving him a new law that he will implement the way the Congress intended,” Boehner said.

John Boehner: Obama “will spoil the well”, by Tal Kopan, April 8, 2014

(This of course raises the question of just why Boehner wants to “do immigration reform” and destroy his party, and his country.)

So Amnesty may not pass—but the Obama Regime plans to implement it anyway. And it looks like this was the plan all along.

The Regime’s Administrative Amnesty has been ignored (or secretly supported) by treacherous Republicans.

And anti-white, anti-American groups have also received promises from their Minority Occupation Government that the Regime will act within three months if there is no bill on the President’s desk. [ Activists: We want an emancipator, not a ‘deporter in chief,’ by Richard Gonzales, NPR, March 29, 2014]

The Regime is also trumpeting a review of deportation policy. [Obama orders review of US deportation practices Associated Press, March 13, 2014] This review apparently includes ending all actions against aliens who violated deportation orders and even against those who were deported but infiltrated again later. [ Who Should Be Deported, by John Sandweg, Los Angeles Times, March 27, 2014]  

This would effectively end immigration enforcement in the United States…except for aliens with especially blatant criminal convictions.

But never fear—even criminals are preferable to Americans in the eyes of the Regime. An Amnesty is already under way for them too.

It is becoming clear that the Regime’s plan has been more deliberate, detailed, and comprehensive than previously imagined. Step by step, the Regime is seeing what it can get away with.

Initially, it was the Main Stream Media’s pet “DREAMers” who just
