American patriots already live under a de facto social credit system, but now it looks likely to become a de jure regime. The New York Times recently published an op-ed by a Democrat Congressman and a Muslim former FBI Special Agent complaining that “no white supremacist group has ever been designated a foreign terrorist organization under federal law” [We Once Fought Jihadists. Now We Battle White Supremacists, by Max Rose and Ali H. Soufan, February 11, 2019]. Yet who defines “white supremacist”? If it’s the Main Stream Media and the Anti-Defamation League, there will be a lot of “white supremacists”—probably including VDARE.com. The real truth is the opposite:  there is now a Totalitarian Left in this country. And it’s increasingly obvious that our much-touted “liberal democracy” can’t stand up to it.

Congressman Rose and former FBI special agent Soufan claim that some “white supremacists” traveled to foreign countries and that this justifies labeling certain groups as “foreign terrorist organizations”—which would allow law enforcement to “monitor communications” as well as to “bring charges for providing material support to the designated groups, with appropriately severe penalties attached.”

The FBI obviously should combat terrorism. Yet it should be fighting the act, not selectively going after particular ideologies—especially when entrapment and process crimes are so important to the way the FBI operates.

Just as politics in the state of Illinois is dominated by the city of Chicago; just as politics in New York is dominated by the by New York City; and, we see politics in Oregon dominated by the city of Portland. There are a lot of conservative white people in all three of these states, but they are virtually disenfranchised by the large, disproportionately left-leaning population centers of Chicago...

I mentioned the gun control aspect of Ali Syed's rampage earlier—he was rampaging in a county where it's hard to get a CCW permit—and I'm glad to see it get some mention in the MSM.

The latest in Red China ripoffs against America is quite a doozy. Apparently Beijing leaned on one of its people residing in this country to use his position as Chief Investment Officer of CalPERS to redirect billions of dollars toward investment in questionable businesses in China, including military affiliated and some blacklisted by the US government. CalPERS is an agency of the state of Califo...

I wonder if any liberals are re-thinking their insistence that the Boy Scouts allow gay men to take 13-year-old boys on overnight camping trips.

HEADLINE: Boy Scouts Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the Face of Thousands of Child Abuse Allegations

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have long been on the left’s hate list. Any organization that has the temerity to train young men in the virtues of integrity, patriotism and self-reliance is putting itself on the fighting side of liberals!

At the 2000 Democratic National Convention, a little group of Boy Scouts took the stage as part of the opening ceremony—and were promptly booed by the delegates.

For decades, the BSA has fended off lawsuits demanding that they embrace the holy trinity of G's: girls, gays and godless atheists. (If only it had occurred to the plaintiffs to start their own organizations! They could have given them names like “The Girl Scouts.”)

Why would any liberal want to join an organization that was, according to them, sexist, Bible-thumping and bigoted? They didn’t. The lawsuits were kill shots.

Things are not improving at ICE SVU, now even the Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which has two major components, ICE Special Victims Unit (SVU), more formally known as Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) is failing to support deportations.

Ravi Ragbir is an illegal alien and convicted criminal. He is the poster child for the low quality immigrant that dominates the immigrant population in general and non-White immigrants in particular. Ragbir is also symbolic of our broken deportation system. Ragbir was ordered deported during the George W.Bush administration, which failed to deport him and was a winner of the Obama Regime Administra...

The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy this week amid a deluge of sex-abuse lawsuits. The Catholic clergy's pedophilia conspiracies have cost the church more than $3 billion and countless followers. Scandal after scandal shows how cunning child predators have exploited trusted civic institutions under cover of "diversity," "inclusion" and "progressivism."

See also Immigration, Innumeracy, And The Case For Impeaching Judge by Peter Brimelow

President Donald Trump was recently acquitted in the most abusive impeachment trial in American history. The affair was a crazed Ruling Class attack on the U.S. Constitution with the fanatical support of  its MSM handmaidens, who began planning for it even before he won the GOP nomination [Could Trump Be Impeached Shortly After He Takes Office? by Darren Samuelson, Politico, April 17, 2016]. Yet good can still come of it if it helps Americans to start thinking about impeachment the way they should: as a powerful check on overmighty and corrupt Federal officials—which means most notably the legislating Leftist judges known here at VDARE.com as Kritarchs.

Example one: the day after the Senate acquitted Trump, U.S. District Judge Loretta Biggs, right, appointed by Barack Obama, blocked the Department of Homeland Security from policing international students [Court Hands International Students Big Immigration Victory, by Stuart Anderson, Forbes, February 7, 2019]. Of course the case will be appealed. More on this later.

Example two: U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer, appointed by Bill Clinton, ordered a deported illegal brought back from Africa because he didn't like how he'd been deported.

Contrary to what the MSM might suggest, the impeachment power isn’t just a constitutional remedy for presidential misconduct:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. (emphasis added)

[Article II, Section 4, U.S. Constitution, Archives.gov. Emphasis added]

And in fact impeachment, history shows us, has been used against Federal judges far more often than against presidents. As of the beginning of 2020, 66 judges had been investigated for impeachment since the ratification of the Constitution, and only seven removed. (Black judge Alcee Hastings, removed in 1989, went on to be a congressman from Florida’s majority-black 20th District.) Only three presidents have been impeached: Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and, of course, Trump.

See, earlier, by Lance Welton: Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably

When I attended Johns Hopkins University almost 50 years ago, most of the students were men. Enrollment at the medical school was lopsidedly male, too. Today, undergraduate enrollment is 52.2 percent women, 47.6 percent men. The school also “boasts excellent racial diversity,” with whites at 38.2 percent, Asians at 23.4, and blacks around 6 [Johns Hopkins Student Population Stats, Collegefactual.com]. The diversity racket depends on leveraging white guilt about race, of course. (See Diversity and Inclusion, 2017, Johns Hopkins Medicine Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which features a cover photo of a Gambian female student in a hijab). According to Johns Hopkins, women students comprise "approximately 50% of the medical school class."

I believe Lance Welton’s conclusions about the damaging influence of women in the academe, which aroused a predictable furor, apply also to the medical profession. Welton additionally noted the interesting fact that British medical schools admitted women in considerable numbers during World War I, but later decided it was a mistake and cut back. We should be so lucky.

Historically, a number of exceptional women such as Helen Taussig (right, not wearing hijab) the pioneering pediatric cardiologist, have distinguished themselves in medical careers, but social conventions supported a predominantly male medical profession. Not anymore. In 2017, more 60 percent of physicians under 35 years old were female, and the percentage appears likely to increase in the future [The healthcare future is female, by Megan Johnson, AthenaHealth.com, February 14, 2018].

Is this transformation a good thing? My own observations through 35 years of medical practice suggest that everyone will suffer—but no-one will be allowed to notice in medicine’s Brave New World.

I had the pleasure of working with many smart and capable women. But their temperamental and physical limitations provided a constant, subtle undertow of problems: They are 1) indecisive 2) lack professional focus; and 3) get pregnant and 4) burn out more easily than men. None of that bodes well for patients if the majority of doctors are women—or for the women doctors themselves.
