I have been jolted out of my somnolence by The Daily Beast’s jeering story Trump Admin Weighs Shielding Venezuelan Migrants From Deportation by Betsy Woodruff, February 19, 2019. Senior officials at the State Department have been seriously weighing whether to push to protect Venezuelans in the U.S. from deportation, according to internal communications The Daily Beast reviewed…. But extending the ...

Earlier by Steve Sailer (2014) How Many Media Manias Over White Racism Have Turned Out to be Fiascos?

Is it any wonder that American news consumers are at the end of their ropes of patience with the "mainstream media"?

Three weeks ago, when I first documented troubling questions, contradictions and doubts about Trump-hating, attention-craving actor Jussie Smollett's absurd hate crime claims, few in the "professional" journalism herd paid heed. Now, with a grand jury investigation on the horizon, everyone's a Johnny-come-lately debunker.

And everyone's making excuses: How could we have known? Why would anyone lie about racism? What could have possibly prepared us for such a scandalous swindle?

I'm especially looking at you, Robin Roberts. You and ABC's "Good Morning America" willingly played public relations agents for Smollett last week while his story was already falling apart and he refused to be fully transparent with investigators. Now, you defend yourselves by hiding behind a veil of ignorance about hate crimes hoaxes.

Babies

Only a few years ago, motherhood was something seen as so self-evidently good that praising it was an unnecessary banality. Yet, like the Boy Scouts, supporting motherhood has now gone from uncontroversial to “far-right” in Western countries, akin even to Nazism. Thus Sweden’s “Social Security Minister” Annika Strandhäll blasted policies by the Hungarian government to support motherhood, calling it “alarming” and something that “reeks of the 30s” . [Intl Row as Swedish Minister Likens Hungary PM’s ‘More Kids’ Call to Nazi Policy, Sputnik, February 18, 2019] The Hungarian government formally protested the comments and Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto concisely described the difference between the two countries: “Hungary is spending money on families and Sweden is spending it on migrants”.  [Hungary plan ‘reeks of 1930s’: Swedish minister, The Local, February 16, 2019] Unfortunately, the same can be said of most Western countries.

It is worth noting that Sweden, like other Western European countries, is not free. There is no free speech for patriots in Sweden. There is a de facto ban on even discussing immigration policy in Sweden that has only been challenged by the rise of the Sweden Democrats. Despite a record performance by the patriotic party in the last election, the other parties formed a coalition explicitly designed to keep them from any influence. [Sweden’s parties reach deal to keep far-Right Sweden Democrats from influence, by Richard Orange, Telegraph, January 11, 2019] In times of great crisis, different parties in parliamentary systems have joined together to form a government of “national unity.” In the face of rising restrictionist sentiment, Sweden’s government is something closer to a government of national annihilation.

Hungary has chosen a different path. In a recent speech, Hungarian president Viktor Orban announced that Hungarian women with four or more children will no longer pay any income tax. Needless to say, Western media outlets were scathing about the policy. The New York Times sneered that Orban’s was willing to do “anything to avoid immigration”. [Orban encourages mothers in Hungary to have four or more babies, by Patrick Kingsley, New York Times, February 11, 2019] It also quoted one Andrea Peto, a “gender studies professor at the Central European University,” who argued that tax breaks somehow constitute “a regulation of women’s bodies.” Unmentioned in The New York Times report: the Central European University was bankrolled by George Soros and serves as a kind of forward base for left-liberal activists in Hungary. [Why Hungary Forced George Soros-Backed Central European University To Leave The Country, by Susan Adams, Forbes, December 4, 2018] Also unmentioned: Hungary cutting funding for “gender studies” programs, which could also explain the professor’s opposition.

With the "hate crime" against homosexual black actor Jussie Smollett shown to be a hoax, The Daily Caller helpfully provides a partial list of hate hoaxes since The Donald was elected.  Hoaxers staged at least five in November 2016 before Trump took the oath of office. They staged another three in December. Legal Insurrection picked up the Twitter list from journalist, Andy Ngo. Enjoy. Lagniappe: H...

Based partly on the Jussie Smollett Hate Hoax, the Senate has passed an anti-lynching law that makes some kinds of mob violence a Federal crime, as Steve Sailer notes below.These laws are aimed at entirely imaginary white violence, of a kind that hasn’t actually been seen in the US since the early Sixties.However, as John Reid noted in a column titled New Gun Control Laws Aimed At “Bitter, Clingin...

After it was all said and done, the partisan swapping of working-class whites for college-educated whites was the only remarkable electoral demographic realignment revealed in the 2016 presidential election. A couple of years into Trump’s first term, another realignment appears to be occurring, and it is occurring among all non-Hispanics. That seminal realignment is occurring among men, and it is g...

He has no true side from which he can direct his forces. Did ...

As noted previously, support for Trump among young white men is markedly higher than identification with the Republican party is. This is less the case with older men and even less so still with women, where support for Trump closely tracks Republican party identification:      Put in another way, it appears as though younger white men will become more supportive of the GOP in general if it mov...

I’ve had a hard time getting a summary together of VDARE.com’s activities in 2018. I like to be upbeat in these reports, and last year was just too much of a rollercoaster for an easy encapsulation.

But I will start with some good news: in 2018, for the fourth year in a row, VDARE.com’s year-end appeal broke our historical records. The final tally was $134,503, more than 34% over our $100,000.00 goal. And that doesn’t include cryptocurrency, which is a small but increasingly significant source of donations for VDARE.com.

I know I speak for Peter and the rest of the VDARE.com team when I say I am deeply humbled and eternally grateful for your support.

Thank you—thank you. We strive every day to secure America “for ourselves and our posterity”—and your moral and financial support is the fuel that keeps us going.

VDARE.com’s year-end success was particularly remarkable because, like many websites—and not just political ones—we have been impacted by mysterious changes to Google’s algorithm in 2018. It’s become much more difficult for us even to search our own site using Google, and new readers are not coming to us as much via random internet searches on key words that we specialize in, like for example “birthright citizenship.”ar.

Defends

 

“If you look at Trump in America or Bolsonaro in Brazil, you see that people now want politicians who are tough enough to do what they promise,” said Spanish businessman Juan Carlos Perez Carreño.

The Spaniard was explaining to The New York Times what lay behind the rise of Vox, which the Times calls "Spain's first far-right party since the end of the Franco dictatorship in 1975."

Indeed, the growing impatience of peoples with elected leaders and legislators who cannot or will not act decisively explains two realities of our time: the eclipse of Congress and the rise of autocracy worldwide.

In condemning President Donald Trump's decision to declare a national emergency and use Pentagon funds to build his wall, Beltway elites have charged the president with a multitude of sins against the Constitution.

He has usurped the "power of the purse" that the Founding Fathers invested in Congress. He has disregarded the "checks and balances" of Madisonian democracy. He is acting like an imperial president.

Keep

The Watcher said on January 25, After Shutdown Retreat, Trump Has Three Weeks To Save His Presidency. Maybe He Will. So did Trump save himself with his actions Friday? Our answer: a resounding Maybe.

VDARE.com’s John Derbyshire savagely denounced the funding bill Trump signed. And Derb was far from alone in the immigration patriot community. The bill was not ideal, to say the least.

But we should note that some patriots are arguing the most controversial “poison pill” concessions are not as bad as they appear at first sight—for example on the alleged veto power over wall construction by a handful of border counties. Similarly, some Twitter users have pointed out that the stipulations regarding sponsors of illegal alien minors would not cover people clearly associated with human trafficking and would not effectively hinder Homeland Security’s power to deport whoever deems fit for deportation. And the cap on beds in immigration detention (42,520) is, in fact, the current cap—not a reduction. The bill also gives Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) the ability to appropriate money from other agencies if the number of detainees exceeds the number of beds; and allows ICE to obtain the resources to detain up to 58,000 migrants if necessary. [The Shutdown Deal Includes More Ice Detention Beds. That Doesn't Mean Mattresses, by Jack Herrera, Pacific Standard, February 14, 2019]

Interestingly, a particularly detailed argument for immigration patriot moderation about this bill comes from the much-persecuted hard-right podcast Fash The Nation. [FTN 190: Flight 93 Declaration, February 17, 2019]
