My first reaction on the European Parliament elections is that nationalists have firmly established themselves as a political force in almost every European country. Far from being "fringe parties," many of these parties won a plurality in their countries, defeating the so-called "mainstream" parties. In Hungary, the nationalists won a majority. As an American, I can't but feel somewhat jealous, as...

Memday

According to the BBC, Memorial Day this year is not about the soldiers, very largely white males, who died in America’s wars, it’s about America’s black soldiers, and more than that, it’s about America’s black female soldiers, and more that, it’s about  black female soldiers with discipline problems.

It starts with black female Air Force veteran Janice Jamison talking about how her black women’s veteran’s organization hosted failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, and she had an argument with

…five white men who began protesting that Abrams didn't understand veterans.

Jamison, who works for the organisation whose members are predominantly African American, tried to reason with the men but found herself being harangued by one man on the subject of veterans' needs.

"I said to him, 'Well, sir, for you to tell me what I need as a veteran, have you ever been in uniform?"

The man—who she later discovered to be a white nationalist—admitted he had not, and appeared visibly embarrassed, she tells the BBC.

Memorial Day: America's strained salute to its black veterans, by James Jeffrey, BBC, May 24, 2019

The BBC’s Jeffrey [Email him | Tweet him] goes on to a lot of “black history” stuff about that small minority of America’s soldiery who have been black and says that America isn’t doing right by its black soldiers:

Protect Our Defenders, an advocacy group, released a 2017 report highlighting how black service members were treated more harshly by the military's judicial system.

Black soldiers were 61% more likely than white soldiers to face court martial, the military judicial proceeding for more serious offenses. That percentage was 40% for black sailors and 32% for black Marines.

Black airmen were 71% more likely than whites in the Air Force to face court martial or non-judicial punishment, discipline meted out for less serious offenses.

"I seem to be getting inundated with black female officers who are being disciplined for dumb stuff," says Coretta Gray, who spent 13 years as an officer in the Air Force Judge Advocate General's Corps, the military's branch for military justice and military law, and continues to consult on cases.

"Often those sorts of issues are sorted out at unit level before it has to go anywhere, and I'd contend that usually whites get the benefit of that more than blacks," Gray says.

disproportionally

"It may well be unconscious bias, as opposed to anything institutional, as you tend to help those within your social group and who you are more familiar with."

But she also suspects that the current mood in America has something to do with why she is seeing an increase in these types of disciplinary cases.

"People are feeling more emboldened to act out their biases," Gray says. "It's an inflection moment - there's this atmosphere emboldening people to show who's in charge and how they are going to handle things."

I need to remind everyone—it may just be transatlantic ignorance on the BBC’s part—that all of this is inappropriate on Memorial Day.

The Left’s attitude to IQ epitomizes its irrational, contradictory, self-serving, anti-science world view. At one moment, IQ tests are biased against blacks, IQ tests don’t measure anything meaningful, and there are different and equally important kinds of “intelligence.” But when a 4-year-old black girl living in the UK has an IQ of 140 and is the youngest person ever to join UK MENSA—how much higher would it be without all the “stereotype threat” she has to cope with?—then she is a “genius” with “superior general intelligence”.  [4-Year-Old Girl Labeled a ‘Genius,’ Scores 140 IQ, by Jasmine Washington, Ebony, March 14, 2019] Similarly, the same contradictory thought system surfaced recently with the publication of some truly ground-breaking research on the Ashkenazi Jews. 

Ashkenazi Jews—Jews whose ancestors settled in Eastern Europe—have the highest average IQ of any race in the world, estimated to be about 112, 12 points higher than white gentiles. As far back as 1938, a study noted the Ashkenazis’ outstanding levels of intelligence and especially their high linguistic abilities [Der Gegentypus, by E.R. Jaensch] and studies have continuously replicated this ever since —see The Chosen People: A Study of Jewish Intelligence and Achievement by Richard Lynn. Their high average IQ means that Ashkenazi Jews are and have long been massively over-represented in high-status professions. For example, Jews are overrepresented among Nobel Prize winners by a factor of 8:1. And this has often led to vehement resentment from the host population. But precisely why Ashkenazi IQ is so stratospheric has remained unclear…until now.

In his book The Chosen People, Richard Lynn assumed that the reason for Jews’ outstanding IQ was genetic. He proposed, in particular, that Jews were historically forced into specific cognitively-demanding professions, such as usury and banking, meaning that less-intelligent Jews tended to drop out of Judaism and marry into the surrounding gentile population. In addition, Lynn argued that the frequent pogroms to which Jews were subject in Eastern Europe would have been “selection events” which would have selected for correlates of IQ such as future-orientation, social skill, planning and simply the wealth needed to escape. Thus, Lynn argued that, even though Jewish IQ was high before the Holocaust, it was probably even higher afterwards.

See, earlier CHARLOTTESVILLE REDUX: There's Still Time For Trump DOJ To Investigate AntiFa—And Stop Our Slide Into Civil War

The 2019 American Renaissance Conference in Tennessee went off without a hitch, but it will be a temporary triumph as long as Antifa continue to be treated with kid gloves. Massive security was required and, in a new move, Antifa began attacking attendees’ cars. Needless to say, if nationalists acted this way, there would be Main Stream Media hysteria and a sweeping law enforcement crackdown. But as of now, GOP Governor Bill Lee has done nothing. It is long past time for an investigation into these criminal organizations—by the state of Tennessee and even by Donald Trump’s DOJ.

Tennessee taxpayers have a financial interest in such an effort. As always, law enforcement ably protected the conference; if you didn’t go outside, you wouldn’t know Antifa were even there. Yet the expensive effort required security checks at the doors, roadblocks, and even troopers on horseback. Antifa were provided an area near the venue to demonstrate, but they declined. Four people were arrested. [Several protesters arrested outside conference at middle Tennessee park, by Aj Abell, Fox 17 Nashville, May 18, 2019]

One was named Corley Lemley. Lemley has been Antifa for quite a while, and was given a sympathetic interview by local Tennessee news back in 2017. [Q&A: Antifa organizer speaks about the movement’s mission, by Nancy De Gennaro, USA Today Network – Tennessee, October 30, 2017]

Interestingly, 2017 was the year when an incident took place that likely inspired the heightened security of the future. Contact between an American Renaissance conferencegoer and an Antifa activist led to a fight and mutual charges. The conflict started because Antifa were banging on windows, cursing, and screaming threats. One Antifa named JM Carico was arrested. Antifa claim he beat the charges from 2017, but is now facing drug charges. [KKKop Consolation Prize, The International Anti-Fascist Defense Fund, April 19, 2019] He (not surprisingly) unsuccessfully ran for the Senate seat in Tennessee last year.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson might have been channeling VDARE.com last week when he spoke an obvious truth about Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim refugee from Somalia. As our own A.W. Morgan argued exactly a month ago, mass immigration doesn’t just mean electing a new people who might overwhelm the Historic American Nation. It also means giving those hostile immigrants a voice in national affairs when the still-white majority, motivated by guilt, accepts them into Congress.

Carlson couldn’t put it quite that way, of course. But he got close when explained that the resentful, anti-American ideologue is the result of Open Borders:

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, herself a symbol of America's failed immigration system if there ever was one, someone who hates this country coming here at public expense, spent yesterday demanding the abolition of ICE, the decriminalization of illegal immigration itself, and an end to all deportation programs. She demands Open Borders, the unlimited arrival of anyone who wants to come to America whether they have anything to contribute or not and, by the way, you get to pay for it. And if you don't want to, you are a bigot.

[Tucker Carlson: Ilhan Omar is ‘a symbol of America’s failed immigration system’, by John Gage, Washington Examiner, May 17, 2019]

And this wasn’t the first time Carlson put the Muslim congresswoman on notice that he’s watching her. After she told Vogue Arabia in March how awful Trump’s America is, Carlson offered this:

So how does she repay her adopted country, the one that may literally have saved her life? She attacks it as hateful and racist, and for that she is applauded by the Democratic Party because they view this country as hateful and racist too. Maybe our immigration system should prioritize people who actually like this country and are grateful to be here.

[Tucker Carlson: Ilhan Omar ‘Repays Her Adopted Country’ by Attacking It as ‘Hateful and Racist’, by Josh Feldman, Mediaite, April 1, 2019]

Unsurprisingly, the usual suspects attacked Carlson for his eminently sensible comments.

After a stroke felled Woodrow Wilson during his national tour to save his League of Nations, an old rival, Sen. Albert Fall, went to the White House to tell the president, "I have been praying for you, Sir."

To which Wilson is said to have replied, "Which way, Senator?"

Historians are in dispute as to whether Wilson actually said it.

But the acid retort came to mind on hearing that Nancy Pelosi, hours after accusing President Donald Trump of "engaging in a cover-up," a felony, piously volunteered, "I pray for the president of the United States."

For, by now, the hostile investigations of Trump by Pelosi's House are becoming too numerous to list.

Subpoenas have been issued to the IRS demanding Trump's tax returns. New York has enacted a law to gain access to Trump's state tax returns, to pass them on to the comrades on Capitol Hill. Democrats are not seeking these records for guidance on how to reform the tax code.

House committees want the files of his accountants. Subpoenas have been issued to lending institutions where Trump borrowed, such as Deutsche Bank, going back to the last century.
