As an American, not being an American is Who We Are. The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward all 7.5 billion (and counting) Pre-Americans moving to America to fight racist nativism. As two statesmen explained the new orthodoxy fifteen years ago: “America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above ou...

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, born in 1920, is dead at 99. He was one of the many Republican-appointed Justices who betrayed conservatism, Republicans, and America on the Supreme Court. In Is a Trump Court in the Making?, Pat Buchanan listed some of the judicial turncoats, and said “Gerald Ford's sole nominee, John Paul Stevens, confirmed 97-0 in the Senate, turned left soon after...

In his talk at the “National Conservatism” conference just concluded in Washington D.C., Tucker Carlson joked about how after Trump’s improbable victory, he had to re-evaluate everything he thought he knew about the world. If Trump could win the election, then maybe UFOs are real. He was exaggerating, but he was serious about re-evaluating his view of the world.

Carlson also made the point that official Washington continues to struggle with the reality that Donald Trump is President. It’s why Carlson was happy to come to the conference and talk, as it was the first sign that Washington is starting to come terms with what happened in 2016. He may not be on board with the Hazony-Brog project, but he was onboard with the discussion of what comes next.

Carlson is a level-headed guy, so when he talks about re-evaluating his politics in light of Trump, he is doing so within the bounds of reason. For people like Bill Kristol [Email him]and Max Boot, [Email him] the disconfirmation has driven them to madness. Not only have they lost their previous certainty about politics, they are now imagining all sorts of weird fantasies about You Know Who coming back from the grave.

That is an important starting point for understanding what’s going on with Yoram Hazony’s National Conservatism stuff. Some of the people getting involved in his project have been critics of Conservatism Inc. for a while, so they see this as an opportunity to do damage to the Conservative Industrial Complex. Instead of being outsiders, they will get to be insiders and set the agenda.

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.

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.
