SAID IN SPANISH: Biden In White House, So Mexico’s AMLO Resumes Meddling In U.S., Attacks Texas Gov. Greg Abbott

To the surprise of everyone except me, POTUS 45 Donald Trump succeeded making deals with Mexico and countries in Central America to decrease the number of non-Mexicans arriving at the U.S. border through Mexico. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador actually respected Trump and spoke well of him publicly. But ever since Joe Biden has been president and opened the borders for the Great Replacement, AMLO’s rhetoric has drastically changed. He’s meddling in U.S. affairs again, most recently in a sustained attack on Texas Governor Greg Abbott, warning that if Abbott wants to win re-election he better not “mistreat” Mexicans in the United States.

The Mexican president frequently rants about defending Mexicans in the United States, demands we do what he says, and attacks American politicians such as Cuban-American Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas.

A meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on September 12 in Mexico City, where the two discussed immigration, provided AMLO the chance to say immigration must not be used in the “electoral process,” and twice attack Abbott, once the next day, and then again eight days later.

Among other things, State Department spokesman Ned Price reported in his readout, Blinken and AMLO discussed “our ongoing cooperation and efforts to humanely address irregular migration in the Americas” [Secretary Blinken’s Meeting with Mexican President López Obrador, State.gov, September 12, 2022].

“Secretary Blinken reiterated our deep appreciation for Mexico’s coordination on economic, security, and migration issues as we seek to advance our shared priorities,” Price explained.

Next day, AMLO discussed the meeting at a news conference:

There was also some discussion of the subject of migration, the interest to continue working together and of taking care of the human rights of the migrants. …

And we proposed that migration should not be utilized as part of the electoral process. And they agreed.

[Versión estenográfica. Conferencia de prensa del presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador del 13 de septiembre de 2022  (“Stenographic Version. Press Conference of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of September 13, 2022”), Gob.mx]

So AMLO demanded that Americans not discuss immigration this election year—and our own Secretary of State agreed.!

But there’s more from AMLO:

And so, in an open manner, as we like and as it should be, we said that we would not remain silent if migrants were mistreated and much less if Mexicans are mistreated.

“Migrants” mistreated? They have the run of our country. Biden has released more than 1 million since he took office.

Then AMLO went off on a rant about the border wall.

“And I spoke about the wall, that President Biden has said that he is not going to construct a wall and he is keeping his word,” he said:

He is the only president of the two parties who has no wall construction project. We have already spoken of the late Bush, of his son, who also was president, Mr. Clinton, Obama, all of them, President Trump, constructed sections of wall and President Biden is the first in many years not to build a wall.”

That subject channeled into Abbott:

Nevertheless, with propagandistic purposes, because I think that he wants to be re-elected, the governor of Texas is talking about constructing a wall. We do not view that well, with all respect, that is vile propaganda. And our paisanos [fellow Mexicans] who are in Texas, well they are not going to let themselves be deceived, because, with all respect, that is politicking.

Later in the press conference, AMLO delved into the globalist dreams he apparently shares with our secretary of State, which include “consolidating the region of North America.

“We agree with that,” AMLO continued:

Not only did I tell him that we are in agreement with consolidating us as a region, including the three countries Canada, U.S. and Mexico, but that we were also in favor of the unity of all the American continent … as the European community first emerged and became the European Union, thus we aspire to the dream of [Simon] Bolivar, of integrating Canada, the U.S., all América.

In Spanish, América refers to the entire Western Hemisphere.

That last remark is no surprise. Globalists have been pushing for an amalgamation of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for some time. But it is notable that AMLO mentioned it in the context of immigration, and a mass invasion of Hispanic illegal aliens whom he surely knows no Republican will have the courage to deport.

That aside, he wasn’t finished

Italian voters elected a nationalist coalition led by the Brothers of Italy party on Monday, September 26. Leftists everywhere denounced the party’s leader, Giorgia Meloni, as a “fascist.” Her election win, they said paradoxically, is a grave threat to “democracy.” Even Joe Biden warned of how dangerous it was for the Italian people to vote the wrong way. But Meloni does have some fervent supporters outside of Italy: American Establishment conservatives are thrilled with her and her nationalist message. That’s a big change from just a few years ago when they would have denounced the same rhetoric as “fascist.” The love for Meloni might signal a profound change within the American Right—a change that will make it more nationalist.

Leftist rhetoric about Meloni was hysterical to say the least [NYT calls anti-immigrant politician “Fascist” 28 times., by Ann Coulter, Substack, September 25, 2022]. The Brothers of Italy is a descendant of the Italian Social Movement and ultimately Mussolini’s Fascist Party. The modern party is hardly fascist and is actually no different from other mainstream right-wing parties in Europe. Meloni’s party is in fact more in tune with American foreign policy priorities than groups like National Rally in France. But that stance didn’t deter any of the over-the-top condemnations.

An illustrative example from the Washington Post's editorial board:

Italy has voted for a new government, likely to be led by a prime minister whose party arose from the ashes of post-World War II Italian fascism. The rise of Giorgia Meloni, the firebrand ethno-nationalist seemingly victorious in Sunday’s elections, has sent shock waves through Europe and triggered fears that Italy might be the Achilles’ heel in Western resolve to resist Russia’s bloody campaign in Ukraine. …

Her apparent victory is more evidence that far-right leaders are ascendant in a continent

Cindy does Maine    We started off September in fine style with a Labor Day long-weekend trip to Maine, briefly described in the September 9th Radio Derb.

Highlights: A day spent at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and then, on Labor Day itself, the Cabbage Island Clambake. In between, kayaking in Linekin Bay and some exploring.

That Labor Day clambake—the last of the season—was my first clambake ever, and proved to be all it was advertised to be. If there are clambakes elsewhere I’m definitely up for them, but I’ll be surprised if they’re as good as Cabbage Island’s.

As regular readers and listeners know, I take a daily New York Post to read over my breakfast oatmeal. It so happened that a few days before we set off for Maine, when we were in the final stages of planning the logistics of the trip, New York Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams posted a report of a trip to Maine that she had just made. Her report was… not uniformly positive.

No litter. No trash. It’s polite. Friendly. Inexpensive. Seafood. Lobsters the size of Radio City. Locals whose behinds overlap the state of Texas all stuffed into shorts. Realtors could establish an entire campsite on the average ass.

In Kennebunkport, Bar Harbor, Portland, Ogunquit, Freeport, Eastport the concept of dressing is only for salad. Forget shopping. Skirts, necklaces, socks, ties, footwear, knife-pressed longpants went out with the first settlers. L.L. Bean jeans, drawers, plaid shirts, crappy sweaters, sweats, sneakers and backpacks are considered black tie.

You have to cut Cindy Adams some slack. She is the quintessential New Yorker, in fact Manhattanite, with an outlook on the rest of the world—including the rest of the U.S.A.—corresponding closely to Saul Steinberg’s famous 1976 New Yorker cover. She closed her column with:

Mainers, maybe ecstatic just to see anyone, are friendly. Anything you want, except for trees, you have to get in your car to get.

I climbed into mine to get back to civilization and New York.

That was a tad too much even for the good-natured citizens of Maine. One of them showed up in the Post’s Letters columns a few days later:

Mainers are fit, fun, relaxed and unpretentious—hence the lack of ties.

Guess I won’t be seeing you in Maine any time soon. But it’s sad that you consider New York civilization, especially of late.

That last sentence would be a direct hit if not for the fact that New York’s style of barbarism is at least mostly native-born, while Maine’s has been imported from Somalia.

[Permalink]


Falls Rome, falls the world    My earliest acquaintance with dyed-in-the-wool Manhattanites was literary. Around age thirteen or fourteen, my teenage passion for science fiction well under way, I read George R. Stewart’s 1949 novel Earth Abides.

For those who don’t know their sci-fi classics, Earth Abides is a post-catastrophe story. A plague has quite suddenly wiped out most of humanity, leaving only scattered survivors here and there. We follow the fortunes of one such: Isherwood Williams, who we get to know as Ish, a graduate student at a West Coast university when the plague struck (George R. Stewart taught English at Berkeley).

Ish takes a cross-country trip seeking other survivors. He finds a couple in New York City: Milt, ”middle-aged and overweight,” and Ann, ”a blonde-haired woman, about forty, well dressed, almost smart-looking.” More or less alone in the empty city, they have helped themselves to an apartment uptown on Riverside Drive where they fill their days playing cribbage and two-handed rummy, drinking martinis, playing records on the phonograph, and reading mystery stories. ”Physically, he guessed, they found each other attractive.” I guess so.

Ish spends an evening with them.

They played cards by candlelight—three-handed bridge … It was a kind of make-believe.

Yet, as the cards were dealt and played, by incidental remarks here and there, Ish put together a great deal of the situation. Milt had been part-owner of a small jewelry store. Ann had been the wife of someone named Harry, and they had been prosperous enough to spend summers on the coast of Maine.

Coast of Maine? Hey…

Now the two of them occupied a fine apartment, vastly better than even Harry had been able to provide. The electricity had failed immediately, because the dynamos which supplied New York had been steam-driven … Being ordinary New Yorkers they had never owned a car, and so neither of them could drive …

Ish figures that Milt and Ann are doomed. The catastrophe had struck early in the year; winter, with no central heating, will probably kill them off.

They were like the highly bred spaniels and pekinese who at the end of their leashes had once walked along the city streets. Milt and Ann, too, were city-dwellers, and when the city died, they would hardly survive without it.

I doubt Cindy Adams is much troubled by thoughts of catastrophe, epidemic or otherwise;

The lady representing the ”Spirit of Liberty” above is from Eugene Delacroix’s famous picture of France’s July Revolution of 1830, not the much worse 1789 French Revolution. A similarly attired lady can be seen on the State Seal of Virginia.

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

Michael Anton is a former Trump Deputy National Security Advisor and an occasional acquaintance of mine. He it was that wrote the famous ”Flight 93 Election” essay in the Claremont Review of Books before the 2016 election, urging readers to vote for Donald Trump. Given the prominence that article attained right before the election, and the narrowness of the vote margins, it is entirely possible that Michael gave us the Trump Presidency.

Michael just fired off another broadside ”What Does Fidelity to Our Founding Principles Require Today?” [American Greatness, September 26, 2022].

This essay is in the grand tradition of mocking Establishment conservatives like Britain’s Tories and our own GOP for their meekness and ineffectuality in the face of leftist advances.

But Michael also builds up a case for a thoughtful, carefully qualified Right Of Revolution—which is actually   specified in the famous second paragraph of the Declaration Of Independence. He says:

I maintain it as axiomatic that you can’t have Natural Rights without a Right Of Revolution, just as you can’t have the Founding without an actual revolution, and since you can’t have the regime of the Founders without Natural Rights, you can’t have the Founding principles or the Founders’ regime without a Right Of Revolution. Each piece is integral to the machine. Remove one, and the whole thing collapses in self-contradiction.

Read the piece for yourself—please: It’s an important contribution to our national conversation.

The final paragraph left me smiling. Here Michael is speaking about Establishment conservatives:

To be fair, the conservatives can muster strength when they see a real threat to their position. You can be sure that, if you so much as glance in the direction of wondering if the Right of Revolution exists—even in theory—there a conservative will be, armed and ready…to shoot you in the back.

Chances are Quebec’s incumbent Premier François Legault, of the Coalition Avenir Québec, will enjoy an easy win in the provincial (= U.S. state) election on Monday, October 3. He got VDARE.com’s attention back in 2018 when he won an unexpected victory with the help of a Trump-style dramatic immigration patriot feint. But, also like Trump, his performance in office has been disappointing. It has become clear that Legault is basically a civic (albeit French-speaking Quebec) nationalist who keeps the Identity card, the defense of the French language, and our collective survival, up his sleeve to play when necessary. As a French-speaking Québécois, I think this isn’t good enough and I will vote for the explicitly separatist Parti Québécois, which has recently abandoned its flirtation with leftist Wokeism and is now—too late!—better on immigration than the CAQ [Parti Québécois would reduce immigration to Quebec if elected, by  Frédéric Lacroix-Couture, Montreal Gazette, September 5, 2022]. But still, as English Canada’s flagship Toronto Globe and Mail just put it, “Quebec is the one [Canadian] province where immigration is a ballot-box issue in provincial elections”[Parties promise to limit immigration in Quebec election, by  Konrad Yakabuski, September 30, 2022]. So much the worse for English Canada!

Since spring, Legault has been surfing on a popularity wave ranging from 40 to 50 percent, the remainder of the vote being split between four parties [A debate and week later, polls show little change in CAQ appeal, by Daniel J. Rowe, CTV News, September 21, 2022]. Except for some Anglo or multiethnic ridings (= U.S. House Districts), nowhere in Quebec is unwinnable for Legault and his CAQ.

In effect, both personally and politically, Legault seems to have reincarnated the hegemonic National (Quebec) Conservative, implicitly crypto-separatist, Union National party of Maurice Duplessis, premier of Quebec 1944-1959. This may be a sweet spot: the French-speaking Québécois are, in fact,  cautious non-Leftists. In this election campaign, all Legault had to do was sit, wait, and avoid any faux pas. That’s what he did.

But again, that won’t help identitarians and nationalists who see their homeland slipping away.

In May, nationalists were enthused by
