The FBI has released its national crime stats for 2019. Murder was down 0.2%. While blacks made up 52.5% of known murder offenders from 1980-2008, their percentage continues to inch upwards, reaching 55.9% in 2019: That means blacks were 8.2 times per capita as likely as a nonblack to be a known murder offender in 2019. (Due to continuing problems with how government agencies collect crime stat...

Like Wikipedia, the New York Times keeps a list of COVID fatalities in its continuing “Those We’ve Lost” feature. Wikipedia’s metric for inclusion is whether the victim had already had a Wikipedia page, while the NYT picks people for its own reasons, including that they are notable for how young they died. So the latter is a more “curated” list than Wikipedia’s. Even so, a look through the NYT’s ph...

Joe Biden is not running an energetic campaign. In fact, he really doesn't seem to be campaigning at all. Then again, he doesn't have to. The Main Stream Media is running the campaign for him. In 2016, the MSM went through the pretense of being objective, reporting on Hillary Clinton's email scandal and some of the less savory aspects of the Clinton Foundation. However, the lesson the MSM took from...

See also: Jefferson's Prophecy, The Rest Of The Story: "The Two Races, Equally Free, Cannot Live In The Same Government"

In their introduction to their edition of Democracy in America (copyright 2000, originally written in 1835), prominent neoconservative intellectual Harvey C. Mansfield and his late wife Delba Winthrop observed that Alexis de Tocqueville's predictive powers were "uncanny."

With one exception: race.

If de Tocqueville really thought blacks and whites could never live together in harmony, he was wrong, they wrote.

Well, it's time to slide that bead over to the "win" column, too.

If 2020 has a race relations lesson, it’s that the number of years out from the end of slavery means nothing. Or the numbers of years out from a black president. Or Civil Rights. Or Affirmative Action.

Or Martin Luther King Day.

You get the picture. To adapt the famous Rodney King quote, blacks and whites just can’t “all get along.”

The riots, the rise of Antifa and BLM, the increasing murder of whites-as-whites and police officers—it all came as a shock to those white Americans who could have sworn the whole race thing was taken care of.

But 2020 would not have surprised de Tocqueville. The Norman-descended Frenchman is, of course, legendary for the elegance and perceptiveness of his writing. He's claimed by both Right and Left (with some justification on either side).

Earlier by Patrick J. Buchanan: Last Best Chance to Capture Supreme Court

By nominating Federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Donald Trump kept his word, and more than that.

Should she be confirmed, he will have made history.

Even his enemies would have to concede that Trump triumphed where his Republican predecessors—even Ronald Reagan, who filled three court vacancies—fell short. Trump's achievement—victory in the Supreme Court wars that have lasted for half a century—is a triumph that will affect the nation and the law for years, perhaps decades.

Article By Washington Watcher II on 09/27/2020

On Friday, President Donald J. Trump pitched his “Platinum Plan” [PDF]to send billions in aid to black communities, push more criminal justice reform, make “Juneteenth” a national holiday, classify lynching as a federal crime, and designate Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terror groups [Trump $500B Black America plan designates KKK, Antifa as ‘terrorist organizations’, by Brooke Singman, Fox News, September 25, 2020]. But given that Trump’s weakness in polls is now among his white base, which this goody bag for angry blacks will do nothing to change, the plan must mystify his loyalists. Even worse, it’s self-defeating. He can’t defend the interests of the people who could elect him— whites—and concomitantly push a bill that implicitly demonizes them.

The Platinum Plan is the basically usual GOP appeal to perpetually-aggrieved blacks, but on steroids, with promises of Jack Kempian opportunity zones, school choice, more funding for historically black colleges—and, laughably, the elimination of occupational licensing requirements, one of the more silly ideas from the libertarians they don’t believe themselves. When I see a libertarian seek treatment from an unlicensed brain surgeon, I’ll believe their press releases.

To be fair, the plan does pitch one key national populist idea as good for blacks: an immigration policy that protects black jobs, for instance, and creates more black jobs by insisting on tough trade deals and bringing manufacturing back home. Of course, immigration patriots can and should support those ideas.

But problems abound:

  • Infrastructure investment of $500 billion in black communities, aiming to create 3 million new jobs, and 500,000 black-owned businesses. As part of a general economic plan that would benefit all Americans, that wouldn’t be so bad. But this is a pledge intended only for blacks. Is this legal?
  • “Home ownership opportunities” a daft idea from George W. Bush, which contributed to the subprime mortgage crisis because blacks and other minorities received home loans they could not afford.
  • “Criminal justice reforms” to reaffirm Jared Kushner’s First Step Act, which sprung hundreds of violent offenders and drug dealers from prison. It includes “a National Clemency Program to unite families and invest in human potential, focusing on wrongful prosecution and rehabilitation,” more “diversity training” for cops and incentives to hire ex-cons.

Those three strikes should be enough to call this plan out, but alas, it gets worse.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow wants me to review Matthew Yglesias’s One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger But I have some fundamental questions before I do so. First, what does “American” even mean if we import more than 600 million migrants, utterly swamping the already floundering Historic American Nation? Second, how will this huge population help us “compete with China” when there have been numerous cases of migrants spying for China? Finally, why would any immigrant want to defend a country which systemically incentivizes non-assimilation? If we must have an empire to compete with China’s civilization-state, it would make more sense for the West to consolidate as a racial, cultural, and spiritual entity than to import millions of people who are more likely to destroy us than save us. Reviewers I respect give me no hope that Yglesias, a lunatic immigration enthusiast so rabid that he has blocked VDARE.com on Twitter, will address these questions

Indeed, it’s not certain that America can maintain its identity even with the current demographic balance. Ygeslias’s premise is already moot because there’s now no consensus about what “America” even means. We are in the midst of a Cultural Revolution, with America’s history, heroes, and heritage under attack. Even after centuries in this country, many African-Americans simply do not identify with the United States, which is why they are now kneeling in protest for the Star-Spangled Banner, demanding we honor their own “National Anthem,” and burning the American flag.

 Rather than standing against this behavior, President Trump just rewarded it with another payoff, a $500 billion “Platinum Plan” for black America, including their own pseudo-Independence Day, “Juneteenth” [President Trump Releases The Platinum Plan For Black Americans: Opportunity, Security, Prosperity, And Fairness, Donaldjtrump.com, September 25, 2020]. It won’t help him politically and once again, white workers get the bill.

Earlier: It’s Official: Even Hard Science Entering New Dark Age

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

Recently I had things to say about wokeness at the fine old magazine Scientific American. Their September issue had run a long article, headlined Reckoning With Our Mistakes, in which the editors groveled, rent their garments, heaped ashes on their heads, and flagellated themselves with guilt over shamefully un-Woke things the magazine had published back in the 19th century.

All that was bad enough—distressing enough, I should say, for an old science geek like myself who, in his youth, looked to Scientific American for instruction and amusement on science and math topics, delivered in a spirit of objective enquiry.

Now here came the October issue. For the first time ever in the magazine's 175-year history the editors [Editor in Chief Laura HelmuthTweet her]have endorsed a Presidential candidate. [Scientific American Endorses Joe Biden | We’ve never backed a presidential candidate in our 175-year history—until now, October, 2020]

Can you guess which one? Of course you can! Quote:

The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its people—because he rejects evidence and science.

There follow several hundred words about how ineptly the Administration has coped with the COVID-19 pandemic, with some supplementary remarks on healthcare in general and environmental issues. Then this concluding paragraph:

Although Trump and his allies have tried to create obstacles that prevent people from casting ballots safely in November, either by mail or in person, it is crucial that we surmount them and vote. It's time to move Trump out and elect Biden, who has a record of following the data and being guided by science.

What exactly are those obstacles to voting that Trump has tried to create? The online version of this Scientific American editorial has a link to a Chicago Tribune story headlined Cook County GOP Sues to Block State's Enhanced Vote-by-Mail Efforts ,by Rick Pearson, August 10, 2020. Back in June, you see, the Governor of Illinois signed a law to expand mail-in voting. Of course, this meant expanding opportunities to corrupt November's election [Confessions of a voter fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots, by Jon Levine, NY Post, August 29, 2020]. A conservative legal group, the Liberty Justice Center,  has tried to block the law.

The Scientific American editorial is, in short, just cut'n'pasted from Biden campaign talking points.
