Giving Tuesday Was A Great Success: Raised Over $20K, Which Will Be DOUBLED By Matching Grant

Our Giving Tuesday videocast, with John Derbyshire, organized by my wife Lydia Brimelow, and featuring a brief appearance, at 07:20, of our three daughters, was a great success.

The original goal was $5,000, which a generous donor promised to match, but stretched to $20,795...which the same generous donor has promised to match!

Video can be seen here.

This is the raw file: fast forward through video to 05:55 for the start of actual talking. An edited, embedded version will appear on BitChute tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who donated.

Our Third World election. The election? I called it—a year and a half ago.

Better yet, although it gives me no pleasure to report the fact: I called it for the right reasons.

  • The quality of the opposition. This wasn't as big a factor as I predicted. Joe Biden was barely a candidate at all; he just stayed in his bunker and let the Establishment's anti-Trump forces do their work.

    That still made him a better candidate than Mrs Clinton in 2016, though. Zero is greater than negative one.

  • The media. As I said: "That includes the social media, where most Millennial airheads get their news. Trump won't just be up against the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the big network TV channels; he'll be facing off against Twitter, Google, YouTube, and Facebook too. Media-wise, Trump's 2020 campaign will have to fight uphill all the way." Called it.

  • Trump disappointment syndrome. "Most to the point: How many 2016 Trump voters are so disappointed they won't bother to turn out next November?" I listed states where this could really matter: Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida. Three out of four ain't bad.

  • Events, dear boy, events. Yep: We got a pandemic—such a great gift to the Establishment election-fixers, even conspiracy-theory skeptics like me can't help but wonder ….

There was no way the entrenched forces of Orthodoxy—of the military-industrial-commercial-media-Big Data-academic complex—were going to let Trump get re-elected. In 2016 he caught them by surprise. They didn't take him seriously. In 2020 they were ready, and took him very seriously. They determined to stop him By Any Means Necessary, including of course massive vote tampering.

This year 2020 is a milestone. It is the year the U.S.A. became, indisputably, a Third World kleptocracy with a ruthlessly amoral ruling class preaching an ideology of lies. More on this in a later segment.

As I write this, at the end of November, there is still a faint hope that the courts, and the people's representatives in key states, will annul this joke of an election. I cling to that hope.

The world of The World of Suzie Wong. In my November 6th podcast I let slip my sinogynephilia.

The occasion was my learning that the 27th James Bond movie, due in April 2021, has a black lady, Lashana Lynch playing Agent 007. I commented thus:

Shall I be watching No Time to Die? Nah—no offense to Ms Lynch, to whom I wish all the luck in the world. It's just that, as I've said, I lost the Bond thing altogether back in the Clinton administration.

Although, if they were to cast Zhang Ziyi as Agent 007, I might change my mind …

That prompted a curious listener to ask whether I had ever read Richard Mason's 1957 novel The World of Suzie Wong: "The timeless story of the love affair between a British artist and a Chinese prostitute" (Amazon.com).

Indeed I had, long ago. I even have some very slight personal connection to the book. It was made into a successful stage play, then a somewhat less successful movie. The Broadway production of the play featured 27-year-old William Shatner as the male lead.

For the West End (i.e. London) production of the play, Gary Raymond played the male lead, with Tsai Chin as Suzie. The third name on the cast list was Janet Derry, a first cousin of mine, daughter of my Dad's baby sister.

That's my slight connection. I don't see how it could be any slighter.

Is the novel any good? I remembered liking it, but the memory was distant and vague. Prompted by my listener's query, I found a library copy and re-read it.

It stands up pretty well—as middlebrow 1950s fiction generally does, in my experience. Mason pulls off the trick of writing frankly about sex without prurience or indecency. His first-person narrator is a normal and likable guy. Suzie is a real literary creation, and very Chinese. Some of the slang is dated; but then, so is some of the non-slang. When was the last time anyone unselfconsciously wrote the word "gaol"?

And if you think it's shamefully colonialist for Chinese hookers to be servicing white sailors, I can personally testify that the converse thing—white hookers for Chinese sailors—is by no means unknown.

A man in an SUV killed 5 people in Germany by running them down in the city of Trier. Press reports are saying that he's some kind of mental case, of no fixed address, and had been consuming alcohol. They're also saying he's a "German national", which is true of a number of Muslims.  It's amazing how fast they can release the fact that someone is not an immigrant. He could still be a Muslim, of cou...

PHOENIX—A motley throng of patriots amassed Monday at the Hyatt Regency for a raucously peaceful "Stop the Steal" rally. There were Zoomers and Boomers, "America First" leaders and Proud Boys, tea party veterans and indie Donald Trump loyalists. I flew down from Colorado to lend my support to all these anti-establishment activists brave and vigilant enough to take to the streets. Praise for "Christ the King" rang out amid demands that a special legislative session be convened.

My message to the rallygoers was the same one I delivered at the "Stop the Steal" rally in Colorado Springs last month: We, the people, must rise up to protect our constitutional republic and prevent it from becoming a full-blown banana republic. "Me First" Republicans such as Cindy McCain, who has been offered an ambassadorship by corruptocrat Joe Biden, are complicit in systematically disenfranchising law-abiding voters. If there is no election justice, then there can be no election peace.

With the sterling exception of Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, the absence of nationally known conservative figures at the protest was as glaring as an Arizona sunrise and as gaping as the Grand Canyon. Inside the hotel, Republican state legislators hosted Trump legal team lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis for a marathon presentation of election fraud evidence that began at 9 a.m. and did not adjourn until nearly 8 p.m. Bright-red flags ranged from electronic voting machine vulnerabilities to shady homeless voter registrations, to long-festering concerns about large-scale illegal immigrant voting, to a dizzying raft of statistical anomalies involving massive numbers of mail-in ballots.

If you want to know why the Catholic bishops will cheerlead “President-elect” Joe Biden for the next four years, listen to Washington, D.C.’s  Wilton Gregory, the first black American cardinal [Wilton Gregory becomes the first Black American cardinal, CBS News, November 28, 2020]. Gregory says Catholic-In-Name-Only Biden’s full-throated support for abortion-on-demand is no reason to deny him holy communion [DC archbishop affirms he will give Holy Communion to pro-abortion Joe Biden, by Michael Haynes, Lifesite, November 24, 2020]. Gregory’s failure to uphold Canon 915, the Catholic law governing the reception of Holy Communion, is a symptom of his open Leftism, along with his fellow Bishops, which in turn explains why they back Biden’s suicidal plan to open the borders, legalize 11 million illegal aliens, and hasten The Great Replacement.

Before elaborating on the link between the bishops’ ignoring canon law and their leftism and immigration boosterism, it’s worth explaining why Gregory must deny Holy Communion to Biden, who thinks a “palmist” wrote the Psalms.

I’m not a canon lawyer. But I am a cradle Catholic, and an American patriot. You don’t need a Ph.D. from the Gregorian University to know when someone can’t receive communion.

Previously: Biden’s Immigration Arrogance May Cost Dems Vital Georgia Senate Seats

The GOP is worried about the January 5 Georgia Senate runoffs. As well it should be. Losing will cost the party its U.S. Senate majority. Yet Georgia’s Stupid Party hacks are doing little to mobilize the base vote, partly because Bush torpedo Karl Rove is helping run the show [Karl Rove to helm massive GOP fundraising drive for Georgia runoffs, by Alex Isenstadt, Politico, November 16, 2020]. Trump is set to rally for Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler next Saturday. But to win, the GOP should ignore pro-immigration Rove and pound home two messages: An illegal-alien Amnesty is coming if they lose both seats; and Democrats are trying to steal them, just like they arguably robbed Trump of a second term.

Amnesty is the critical issue, but you wouldn’t notice it from the campaigns. Of course, the two hard-Left Democrats, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, won’t discuss it. But, amazingly, Perdue and Loeffler are ignoring it, too. “We are the firewall to socialism in America,” Loeffler recently said in fluent Mitch-McConnellese. Though both support Trump’s election challenges and have called for the state’s quisling GOP Secretary of State to resign, they seem implicitly to accept Trump’s coming departure from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue [In Georgia, Republicans juggle Biden win and Trump loyalties, by Bill Barrow, The Associated Press, November 26, 2020].So why not hammer on the Biden Amnesty to bring white a.k.a. American voters to the polls?
