Without a single hearing, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill last week that would shaft middle-class Americans, benefit Big Tech, and elect a new Leftist Overclass. HR 1044, The “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act,” which should really be called the American Tech Worker Immiseration and Indian Overclass Importation Bill, would eliminate sensible country work-visa caps, with the result that Indians are likely to monopolize the skilled immigration inflow. The vote was 365-65, with 140 Republicans for and just 57 against. [H.R. 1044: Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019, Govtrack.com] Thus does the GOP/GAP, however much improved on immigration rhetoric under President Trump, remain in thrall to the Chamber of Commerce—not least Big Tech, which hates the GOP and white America.

Among the 57 Republicans who voted against were the usual reliable immigration patriots—including Alabama’s Mo Brooks and Idaho’s Steve King, along with Texans Chip Roy and Louie Gohmert.

Right now, the rules that govern the number of foreign workers with green cards caps India to about 25 percent of the total. If HR 1044 becomes law, the Center for Immigration Studies’ Jessica Vaughan reported, Indians “will get more than 90% of the professional employment green cards, according to USCIS—for at least the next 10 years.” That’s because of the Indian backlog, mostly due to Indians already here on “temporary” H1B visas applying to become permanent residents, “green cards would be unavailable to applicants from all other parts of the world (and many other occupations) for at least a decade.” [Fact Sheet on HR 1044, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act, July 8, 2019].

The rationale for the legislation, Vaughan reported: too many Indians await green cards to work, and Big Tech wants a faster way to get them into the country. Solution: raise the cap on visas. Thus, the tech industry gets even more cheap foreign labor.

And, ominously, the legislation will exacerbate the chain migration that is flooding the United States with Third World immigrants. That’s because it more than doubles, from 7 percent to 15 percent, “family visas” that permit one legal immigrant to bring in relatives (more than 90 in some recorded cases!)

President Donald Trump's playground taunt Sunday that "the Squad" of four new radical liberal House Democrats, all women of color, should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came," dominated Monday morning's headlines.

Yet those headlines smothered the deeper story.

The Democrats are today using language to describe their own leaders that is similar to the language of the 1960s radicals who denounced Democratic segregationist governors like Ross Barnett and George Wallace.

Consider what the four women have been saying.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi of attacking "newly elected women of color." Was she calling Pelosi a "racist"?

"No!" protested AOC. But it sure sounded like it.

AOC's chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti attacked Native American Rep. Sharice Davids for her vote on a Pelosi-backed bill that sent $4.6 billion in aid to the border but lacked the restrictions on Trump policies progressives had demanded.

On ItsGoingDown.org, an antifa riot-promoting  site, they say that attempted mass murderer Willem van Spronsen is an attempted immigrant mass murderer—he was born in Holland.

“Armed Civil War In Current Year America.” Even as hyperbole, it makes for a sexy headline. So why won’t the failing news media — so desperate for ratings and clicks—talk about the story that’s a far fetch from fake news?

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com

Yoram Hazony, author of the book The Virtue of Nationalism (and sparring partner of VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow) felt obliged to go on Twitter the other day to note that, quote:

There's a "dark and dangerous side" to nationalism. But there's also a "dark and dangerous side" to internationalism. Why are we expected to constantly mention the first, but not the second? It's like having the surgeon general's warning on chewing tobacco, but not on cigarettes.

Of course Hazony is right. The commanding heights of our culture are in the hands of fanatical anti-national, anti-white ideologues who are interested in power; they are interested in conquest; they are interested in victory—total victory in the Cold Civil War.

For a look at what we have in store as the ideologues tighten their grip, glance across the Atlantic and consider the case of Tommy Robinson.

Tommy is an Englishman, 36 years old, from the town of Luton, thirty miles north of London. I remember Luton from my London days; it's on the main road from London to my home town of Northampton, and I passed through it often. Back then, in the sixties and seventies, it was a nondescript light-industrial town, the population white working-class English and Irish.

Later in the last century, when Tommy Robinson was in his teens, Luton was afflicted with mass immigration of Muslims from Pakistan and Bangladesh. Today the town is close to one-third Muslim.

So it's not very surprising that Tommy, in his twenties, became a nationalist. Tommy's a working-class lad with not much education, and he's a keen supporter of his town soccer team, so it's also not surprising that he came in at the rough, street-fighting end of nationalism.

He's cleaned up his act considerably the past few years, though, and focused his activism, sometimes a bit erratically, against the efforts by Britain's political and cultural Establishment to suppress all criticism of multiculturalism, of Islam, of anti-white policies, of mass immigration, of the European Union.

For this the Establishment and their Goodwhite stooges have targeted Tommy as an Enemy of the People. This week he got a prison sentence on a patently trumped-up charge of contempt of court. You can read the details in excellent reporting by Jack Montgomery and James Delingpole at Breitbart.com, or Ezra Levant at The Rebel Media.

You can fault Tommy for all kinds of mis-steps. You can even suspect he's a bit of a publicity hound.

I don't care: speaking as a working-class English boy myself, I say his heart's in the right place, and offer him my best wishes for surviving incarceration in a prison system run by homicidal Muslim gangs whom the British authorities are too cowardly to deal with.

I’m still in Mexico!

Note that Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador graciously wished the United States a Happy Fourth— unlike the flag-burning radicals who hate the historic American nation and set Old Glory aflame outside the White House, which didn’t win them any friends with veterans such as myself. Note also that we— the historic Americans who voted for President Trump — have had some good news: Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on Mexico to get its help stopping the illegal-alien invasion has worked. Mexico has, indeed, cracked down: apprehensions at the South West border, a proxy for the illegal alien influx, have fallen. Next un-MSM-heralded step: Mexico won’t object (at least loudly) to Trump’s planned deportations from the U.S!

Here’s the latest on the border. Not great—but at least the immivasion has been reversed:

Recall that Trump told Mexico in no uncertain terms what would happen if it didn’t get control of the illegal-alien tsunami rolling up from Central America: tariffs up to 25 percent. Mexico, as I reported weeks ago, moved troops to the border. And as I observed a week later, rank-and-file Mexicans weren’t unhappy—they agreed with Trump that Mexico must control its borders.

Similarly, Bloomberg.com earlier reported some very heartening news: the number of illegals apprehended in Mexico tripled and those deported from Mexico nearly tripled:

After striking a deal with the U.S. to reduce illegal border crossings, Mexico tripled the number of migrant detentions in June from a year earlier, government statistics show. A total of 29,153 undocumented migrants were apprehended last month, up more than 200% from June 2018, and an increase of 23% from May of this year. Deportations rose 183% from a year earlier to 21,912, up 33% from the previous month, according to National Immigration Institute data.

[After Trump Deal, Mexico’s Detention of Migrants Tripled in June, by Nacha Cattan, July 2, 2019]

Next day, Trump tweeted his gratitude: “Mexico is doing a far better job than the Democrats on the Border. Thank you Mexico!”

Heirsof

Overall, President Donald Trump has disappointed patriots but he’s still set in motion a Republican transformation that can’t be stopped. The top concerns for GOP voters now: building the wall and limiting legal and illegal immigration. Serious Republican candidates for office now have to talk about immigration to maintain grassroots credibility—or else, like Justin Amash, quit before they are fired [Justin Amash Officially Quits House Republicans and Steps Down From Committee Seat, by Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Reason, July 9, 2019]. Rather than being a revolutionary candidate, President Trump may have just been a transitional one, between the old conservative Republicans of the past and the New National Conservatism (nothing to do with the neutered version now frantically peddled by Yoram Hazony et al) of the future. New leaders are emerging to take up the MAGA mantle—and old leaders are adapting.

Here, in order of least promising to most promising, are my predictions of the heirs to MAGA.

Senator Tom Cotton looked like the early favorite to me. His resumé is essentially perfect. He’s young, a combat vet, a Harvard graduate, and a favorite of the Beltway Right. You may scoff but that matters—without Beltway Right intransigence, Trump would have won Minnesota because you wouldn’t have had Evan McMullin.

Cotton is more disciplined than Trump and won’t pick the stupid, distracting, and unnecessary fights that could still cost the president re-election. [What to Know in Washington: Low Approval Holding Trump Back, by Zachary Sherhood and Brandon Lee, Bloomberg, June 18, 2019]

Tom Cotton has also shown real leadership on immigration and related issues. He called for the IRS to investigate the patriot-persecuting Southern Poverty Law Center. He re-introduced the RAISE Act, which would reform the immigration system and slash legal immigration. He shows awareness of the dangers automation poses to American workers. He understands that mass immigration undermines the sense of community any country relies on. He blasts elites who think citizenship is “meaningless” and says immigration is not “just another issue.”[Immigration in the National Interest, by Senator Tom Cotton, Imprimis, October 2017] In short, he gets it—at least part of it.

What’s the problem? Cotton doesn’t get it on foreign policy. (Perhaps this is why the Beltway likes him). He wants to go back to the bad old Bush days of foreign wars in the Middle East. He has already called for direct military action against Iran, which could start a war the U.S. can ill-afford financially and morally. Republicans can’t credibly argue against Democrat “socialism” on the grounds of expenditure if they are willing to blow trillions on wars for dubious interests.

This is disqualifying.

Ted Cruz often said the right things during the 2016 campaign, including highlighting immigration’s negative effects on wages. He even backed then-Senator Jeff Sessions in calling for a minimum wage for H1-B workers of $110,000, which would dry up the market instantly. He won the endorsements of Steve King and Tom Tancredo and portrayed himself as an anti-Amnesty leader
