We arrived in Mexico for a family visit several days after Mexico agreed to stop the illegal-alien invasion at the border in exchange for President Trump’s not imposing an escalating regime of tariffs. The deal provoked various responses: It´s good for both countries, Mexico sold out to Trump, or Mexico defeated Trump. My take: something is definitely happening in Mexico. But our ADHD President needs to follow up.

Mexico’s newly-formed National Guard has moved to Chiapas, the state bordering Guatemala (video here):

The National Guard is patrolling the border with Chiapas to prevent undocumented migration, as part of the agreements with the United States to avoid the imposition of tariffs.

Four days after the deployment of the National Guard on the southern border was announced, the security units that form it engaged in joint patrols in Chiapas, for the first time. This morning, a convoy formed by authorities of the three levels of government patrolled the streets of Tapachula, as part of the strategy to stop the migratory flow, and avoid the imposition of tariffs by the United States.

Tapachula is not on the border, but it is the biggest Mexican city in the region and many Central Americans illegals pass through. However, the patrols apparently didn’t them all that much:

The border between Mexico and Guatemala remained without surveillance this morning which permitted the entrance of migrants without documents on the Suchiate river, on rafts. (Photos here)

Subsequently, however, the National Guard seems to have started detaining illegals:

It is the worst of times and the worst of times—at home and abroad. Unremitting waves of “migrants” a.k.a. illegal aliens continue to pummel America’s southern border, with no end in sight [Record number of undocumented immigrants flooded the southern border in May, by Julia Ainsley, NBC, June 5, 2019]. No truly sovereign nation would tolerate such an invasion, but the “sole superpower” permits it. At the same time, America is on the brink of yet another disastrous military conflict in the Middle East, this time with Iran. [Iran Threatens Nuclear Escalation as War Tensions Increase With U.S., by Paul Shinkman, U.S. News and World Report, June 17, 2019]. No American national interest is at stake. Rather than “America First,” the Trump Administration seems to be pursuing a policy of “America Irrelevant.”

The border situation is so outrageous it appears like something out of a black comedy. “We are in a full blown emergency,” said acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders, “and I cannot say this stronger: the system is broken”. [32% increase in migrants encountered or arrested at the southern border in May, by Priscilla Alvarez, CNN, June 5, 2019]. Why is this happening? Migrants all over the world from Guatemala to Angola know the loopholes in immigration border enforcement imposed by a treasonous Leftist kritarchy, especially the claim of “credible fear” potentially qualifying people for asylum. [While everyone sleeps, the courts are abolishing all immigration enforcement, by Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review, March 11, 2019] Thus, most migrants are not sneaking across the border: they are eagerly turning themselves in at ports of entry, knowing they will soon be released into the country on the promise, which they intend to break, that they will show up for adjudication.

These invaders are being dumped on local communities, seemingly randomly. Without notice, 350 Congolese were sent to San Antonio recently, leaving the city scrambling for interpreters. Mayors throughout Texas, even the Democrat mayor of Del Rio, are furious because dealing with invading migrants prevents local governments from spending money on streets, schools, and infrastructure.

President Donald Trump cannot want war with Iran.

Such a war, no matter how long, would be fought in and around the Persian Gulf, through which a third of the world's seaborne oil travels. It could trigger a worldwide recession and imperil Trump's re-election.

It would widen the "forever war," which Trump said he would end, to a nation of 80 million people, three times as large as Iraq. It would become the defining issue of his presidency, as the Iraq War became the defining issue of George W. Bush's presidency.

And if war comes now, it would be known as "Trump's War."

Tech Totalitarianism hit a new crescendo last week with Google-owned YouTube’s purge and disturbing revelations about Pinterest, a social media site used mostly by women for collecting pictures. It is now indisputable that the tech giants have a systematic bias against patriots and conservatives, which increasingly being extended to long-established Respectable Right factions like the Pro-Lifers. There are things GOP lawmakers could do, but only slightly better signs they might do them. However, the increasingly-Woke Democrats are proposing action—because they want to INCREASE repression. If they win in 2020, God help America, and VDARE.com.

The YouTube purge was supposedly triggered by VOX.com personality Carlos Maza. In viral tweets, Maza whined that YouTube tolerated homophobia and bigotry (he’s openly homosexual as well as Cuban Hispanic ) by allowing the very moderate conservative comic Steven Crowder to insult him on the platform. YouTube idemonetized Crowder and dozens of other right-wing accounts. And it deleted numerous channels and erased hundreds of videos.

YouTube also announced a new policy that forbids content that “justif[ies] discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.” The company said this change reaffirmed its stance against “hate speech.” [YouTube Takes Sweeping Action Against 'Hateful' Content; Conservatives Respond, by James Barrett, The Daily Wire, June 6, 2019]

Perhaps because the purge was driven by some sort of algorithm, if not outsourced to foreigners unaware of the nuances of American debate, several non-conservatives were affected. History teachers and even Leftist journalists had accounts were deleted over “offensive” material, such as historical footage from World War II.

Richard Lynn, now 89 years old, has made it his mission to discover the average IQ of every country on Earth. His first book on the subject, IQ and the Wealth of Nations [2002], written with Finnish political scientist Tatu Vanhanen (1929-2015), was put out by Praeger, a mainstream academic publisher. Since then, Lynn, usually with Vanhanen, has authored or co-authored a succession of books expanding on the same topic—Race Differences in Intelligence (2006), IQ and Global Inequality (2006), The Global Bell Curve (2008) and Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences (2012)—published either by Washington Summit or his own Ulster Institute for Social Research. http://www.ulsterinstitute.org/intellofnations_frontcover.jpgAnd now we have yet another one: The Intelligence of Nations, co-authored with a young German political scientist David Becker, based at the Technical University of Chemnitz in what was formerly East Germany. It is the most important of all of Lynn’s sequels, possibly even more worthy of your time than was the original—especially because Cultural Marxist Race Denial is now eliminating, not merely public debate on the topic, but also academic science.

This ever-tightening Political Correctness stranglehold means that it’s impossible now for Lynn to publish his research via a house like Praeger. Similarly, conventional academic journals at least reviewed IQ and the Wealth of Nations, albeit nastily, but ten years later, there was no way they would review Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences.

Indeed, in the wake of the uproar surrounding student journalist/ enforcer Ben Van der Merwe’s 2018 “discovery” of the London Conference on Intelligence, the University of Ulster caved into pressure and stripped Lynn of the Emeritus Professorship it had awarded upon his retirement, by implication (the university simply referred to “all relevant information”) because it had only just discovered (Lynn taught there for forty-six years!) that his research was “racist and sexist in nature,” exactly as the student Leftists had claimed. [Ulster University withdraws status from Prof Richard Lynn, BBC News, April 14, 2018] VDARE.com’s James Fulford commented that Lynn was being stripped of emeritus status “for saying the same things that made him a professor in the first place.”
