https://vdare.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/David_French_Is_Not_Running_for_President_National_Review_-_2016-07-18_23.24.39.pngPatriots like me have been wryly amused watching the much-touted debates, in writing and on stage, between Sohrab Ahmari, an Iranian immigrant and opinion editor at the New York Post, and David French, Cuckservative in Chief at National Review. Their bone of contention: Should the state intervene in matters of public morality, such as those repellent drag-queen story hours at public libraries. Ahmari says yes; French says no. But their argument ignores the most important facing America: demographics, immigration, and the future of the Historic American Nation.

Ahmari might attract core Dissident Right sympathy due to his stands on tech censorship and borders, and French might invite just as much contempt. But immigration patriots really don’t have a dog in the fight. However good Ahmari looks on paper, deeper probe of his beliefs and gang of associates, who promote something called “integralism,” suggests that he really isn’t one of us.

The debate opened with Ahmari’s attack in a Twitter thread, which he expanded it for First Things. “Though culturally conservative, French is a political liberal, which means that individual autonomy is his lodestar: He sees ‘protecting individual liberty’ as the main, if not sole, purpose of government,” Ahmari wrote [Against David French-ism, May 29, 2019].(He’s since deleted his Twitter account, apparently because of attacks on his family from trolls.)

Ahmari justifiably claimed that “Frenchism” surrenders to the Left in the Culture War, and overemphasizes atomistic individual rights. Forget French’s call for “civility and decency.” Ahmari wants ideological war. In Against David French-ism, he even defended Donald Trump:

The leader of The Cars, the benchmark New Wave rock band of the late 1970s, Ric Ocasek, has died at age 75, which is a pretty good lifespan for a rock star. You’ll note from his age that Ocasek didn’t hit it big until his mid-30s with The Cars debut album in 1978, which featured this music biz veteran’s correct anticipation of what Kids These Days would be into after the long reign of the Blues: mo...

See, earlier, by Michelle Malkin: Open Borders Inc.—Who's Funding The Wicked War On ICE?

Adapted from The Social Contract Magazine

It really is a felony, as Michelle Malkin reminds readers in her new book Open Borders Inc.: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?

to knowingly bring or attempt to bring aliens across the border illegally; to knowingly conceal, harbor, or shield them from detection in reckless disregard for the law; and to engage in any conspiracy or to aid and abet such acts. (Title 8 U.S. Code Section 1324)

But this is easy to forget not merely because the impunity enjoyed by countless individuals and private groups pushing for Open Borders--it is above all the US government’s active disregard for its own laws. If you pay taxes, your money is making this lawlessness possible.

One example: The Federal Reserve runs a remittance service called Directo a México (“Direct to Mexico”) and promotes it in collaboration with the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, an agency of Mexico’s Foreign Ministry. By 2010, more than four hundred banks and credit unions had signed up for Directo a México. Any illegal worker in the US can get an account at such a bank by means of an “Individual Taxpayer Identification Number" issued by the Internal Revenue Service itself. Both the Fed and the IRS are thus openly in violation of the law against aiding illegal aliens.

Another example: The detention facilities for illegal entrant minors recently the center of so much controversy are also overwhelmingly taxpayer-funded. They grew out of Flores v. Reno, a 1997 class-action settlement between Open Borders groups and the Clinton administration. Under the settlement, the government agreed to provide child illegal entrants with

food, clothing, personal grooming items, medical and dental care, academic classes, appropriate reading material in languages other than English, at least one hour a day of large muscle activity, structured leisure time activities, social work, group counseling, access to religious services of the minor’s choice, legal services information regarding the availability of free legal assistance, the right to be represented by council, the right to a deportation or exclusion hearing and the right to apply for political asylum.

It is such full-service taxpayer-sponsored shelters for young invaders that are now being likened to “concentration camps.” A network of some 100 of them spread across 17 states has provided care for over 34,000 children at an average daily cost to the taxpayer of about $700 per child.

When will environmental determinists and science deniers finally admit that they’ve lost the argument? The evidence that there are black-white differences in IQ and that these are partly genetic in origin is overwhelming. A significant contribution has been made by Richard Lynn, who has been published on VDARE.com. Nevertheless, a race-denial article published late last year purporting to prove that there are no black-white differences in IQ has recently had fifteen seconds of fame on Twitter [A Troublesome Intelligence?, by Chanda Chisala, Unz Review, September 26, 2018]. According to its author, a Zambian businessman and journalist, “we did not need to look further than Richard Lynn’s own multiracial home of Britain to find the falsification that he proposed for the racial genetic hypothesis.” But to reach this conclusion, Chisala [Tweet him] has manipulated and misrepresented his data.

Chisala (right) explains that: “. . . black African kids in the UK [i.e. immigrants from Africa] appeared to be at worst only about 8 IQ points below white children (instead of at least 20 to 30 points expected by racial IQ hereditarians).”

He adds:

English-speaking African countries to the UK were actually already outperforming the British whites . . .When broken down into different African nationalities, it becomes clear that even the relatively small 8 IQ point racial gap observed in favor of British whites does not exist. The Black-White performance gap is completely eradicated, and in fact appears somewhat reversed, when you just look at children from African countries that speak some English.

Now, on the surface, this does present problems for Richard Lynn’s hypothesis that black-white differences are significantly genetic. One can imagine talking about race differences in IQ and some woke friend interjecting, “Ah . . . but have you read Chisala’s devastating refutation of these in The Unz Review?”

But there are serious problems with Chisala’s argument:

  • Firstly, nobody would expect the IQ of African children raised, or partly raised in Britain to be 70, even if the Africans that migrated were intellectually average.

Is the Great American Job Machine running out of gas? The U.S. added 130,000 new payroll jobs last month, down from an average 173,000 over the past 12 months. Wall Street had been expecting a gain of 160,000 according to Bloomberg. The Main Stream Media saw this as damage from Trump’s intensifying trade war with China as well as a slowing global economy.[Hiring Slowed in August, but Wage Gains Accelerated, By Nelson D. Schwartz, NYT, September 6, 2019]

But employment data in the “other” employment survey was far more encouraging. A whopping 590,000 new jobs were created in August, according to the Household Survey. That was nearly twice the growth reported in July. (Month to month changes in the household survey are capricious. The problem: it is a fairly small survey: 60,000 households surveyed in a labor force of 130 million households. BLS says the statistical confidence interval for the survey is 500,000 jobs, meaning that for any given month the “true” job growth may be half a million jobs on either side of the reported job figure. So statistically speaking, August’s robust household job growth may be identical to July’s anemic growth. Over time the statistical noise gets washed out. The long-term displacement trend is stable.)

From VDARE.com’s immigration-focused viewpoint, one that is still almost unreflected in the MSM, there was some bad news: August marked the end of the remarkable three-month stretch during which native-born Americans gained jobs while immigrants lost them—a notable reversal of the long-run trend: Native-born American workers lost ground to their foreign-born competitors throughout the Obama years; this accelerated significantly in the months leading up to the 2016 election.
