Re: James Fulford's article The Fulford File | Return Of The Many Wars On Halloween From: An Irish Reader: [Email him] Here's my suggestion: for the month of October leading up to Halloween, create an inexpensive  image or three-dimensional prop of a phantom that represents the Phantom of Systemic Racism!

Charles Murray (The Bell Curve, Coming Apart, Human Diversity) is rightly bitter about the disgraceful shut-out of his latest book Facing Reality: Two Truths About Race from the current U.S. and international debate—actually, dogma—about “systemic racism.” But what this shutout shows is that what John Derbyshire has called a “Murraytopia”— “people accept reality, including the reality of race differences, and social advancement is strictly meritocraticc”—is impossible. And, more immediately, it shows that “Murrayism”—trying reasonably to discuss racial differences while making many concessions to the anti-science Left and suppressing Politically Incorrect science that goes further—has failed. Now what?

Murray laid out his disillusionment and despair in a Twitter thread this summer:

Perhaps indicative of this despair, Murray has petulantly refused to review Kathryn Paige Harden’s disingenuous attempt to make genetics palatable to progressives, The Genetic Lottery, because she used him —again disgracefully—as a strawman:

Earlier, by Michelle Malkin: Mask Mandates Are a Public Health Menace

COLORADO SPRINGS—The latest horror story involving COVID-19 control freaks erupted right here in my backyard on Friday. It's breathtaking. Literally. No responsible parent can in good conscience sit by silently while pandemic tyrants choke off our children's freedom and oxygen supply.

Stephanie M. is a work-at-home mother of three young daughters. On Friday, she received a text from her sixth grade daughter, Rylee. It was a selfie photo of the girl taken at Chinook Trail Middle School in Colorado Springs. The school is in District 20, which imposed a blanket indoor mask mandate a month ago for all preschool through 12th grade students. Rylee's face was covered not only by a black mask but also by three thick strips of blue painter's tape sealing the top of the mask over the bridge of her nose.

You should show nothing but contempt for the ruling class and elite of America, who have presided over the managed decline of this great nation since 1964. Worse, you should show nothing but scorn for those promoted to positions of moral authority simply because of the color of their skin (affirmative action elite). Thus, the beauty of President Donald Trump’s hilarious eulogy of Colin Powell, a ma...

“OK, I admit, I dunno where Afghanistan is on the map. But one thing I do know, like my favorite movie said: ‘We live here.’ You may have all the maps, but we have all the land.” Then again, for all I know, this whole video could be some guy dressing up in his Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves Halloween costume and faking it. The concept of a map, much less of a globe, took a long time to catch on in wo...

Currently, there is a major public relations campaign against Facebook by the Main Stream Media. The argument is that Facebook is not doing enough to control what journalists consider "misinformation." The censorship that has already deplatformed so many conservatives was apparently insufficient. This campaign against Facebook is reportedly coordinated [Facebook: 30 journalists working on 'coordina...

In the immediate aftermath of the Unite The Right antifa riot, President Donald Trump (who appears to be the only person who actually watched the videos from Charlottesville) warned that the removal of statues of Confederate leaders would ultimately lead to the destruction of our Founders.  The Main Stream Media mocked him for this:  The Washington Monument towers over the nation’s capital, juttin...

European leaders learned an important lesson from the 2015 “migrant” crisis: People hate Open Borders. In response to the current crisis, the Euro Establishment has reacted much differently. Leaders are calling for fortified walls, expulsions, and a firm no to “migrant” incursions. Even European Leftists don’t want to repeat the same mistake. Contrast that with our Ruling Class. They see hordes pouring across the border—and demand we make things easier for them. Republicans have shown some improvement on immigration over the previous decade (although even Republicans agreed with importing unvetted Afghan “refugees) but they’re not in charge. The Democrats are, and they’re fanatically committed to Electing A New People.

Europe’s leaders now just aren’t. While many still condemn immigration criticism as “hate speech” and claim nationalism gravely threatens “democracy,” they clearly understand immigration must be contained. Recently, the interior ministers of Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, and Slovakia signed a joint letter that called upon the European Union to finance the construction of border walls [Dozen ministers want EU to finance border walls, by Nikolaj Nielsen, EU Observer, October 8, 2021]. And Poland says it will build one on its own along its border with Belarus, which the EU accuses of weaponizing illegal immigrants to retaliate over sanctions [The EU accuses Belarus of luring global migrants into other European countries, by Rob Schmitz, NPR, October 12, 2021].

There can be few things more transparently evil than framing someone for murder, or a terrorist attack, simply because you don’t like their politics. But as we approach the start of the Sines v Kessler case on October 25, that is exactly what is happening to me and to other attendees of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville VA.

The lawsuit, filed by various “counter-protesters,” i.e., disruptors of the UTR rally—for which I held a permit upheld by a federal judge—alleges a violent conspiracy to assault and murder racial minorities. But as trial approaches. and no evidence of a conspiracy between James Fields, controversially convicted of running down and causing the death of Leftist protestor Heather Heyer, and UTR organizers has materialized, the politically connected attorneys representing the plaintiffs have begun maneuvers to suppress this inconvenient fact.

Take for example, their treatment of the Charlottesville Independent Review, conducted at the city government’s behest by former federal prosecutor Tim Heaphy [Charlottesville report criticises police response and blocking of investigation, by Associated Press, The Guardian, December 2, 2017]. Incredibly, plaintiffs have filed motions trying to bar its use as evidence at trial.

Why would they do that? Perhaps because the Heaphy Report details critical failures by police and said flatly that “the City of Charlottesville protected neither free expression nor public safety on August 12.” It materialized police leadership had no intention of allowing a peaceful rally. They caused protesters and counter-protesters to fight as part of a pre-approved plan to declare an unlawful assembly.
