Having watched some true crime shows recently, I’m reminded that murders tend to be harder than most other crimes to solve, precisely because the best witness, the victim, is dead. It sees like it would be pretty easy to get worked up over one theory of a murder and try to railroad a suspect. Also, people who go into criminal justice don’t tend to be brilliant. I suspect that, say, the National Tra...

Earlier: Biden Rush: Arrests By Border Patrol "Soared To The Highest Levels Ever Recorded"

Congress sent a depressing message to Americans last week: Ukraine matters more than you. The House sped through a bill to give $40 billion to the war-torn state. Only 57 Republicans voted against the bill; not a single Democrat opposed it. “I think we’d all agree the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared [House Passes $40 Billion More in Ukraine Aid, With Few Questions Asked, by Catie Edmondson and Emily Cochrane, New York Times, May 10, 2022]. Memo to Mitch: It’s not. Immigration is.

Only Sen. Rand Paul, who wants an inspector general to oversee the money, stands between this bill and President Joe Biden’s signature [Rand Paul Blocks Quick Passage of Ukraine Aid Bill, by Lindsay Wise, Wall Street Journal, May 12, 2022]. He’s the only Republican senator who seems concerned about giving billions of dollars to a corrupt foreign nation. Meanwhile, Congress has done little or nothing about the invasion at the southern border. Still, Congress might just do something to stop the invasion at the border if enough legislators start caring more about this country than one on the other side of the planet.

A big question is why they think Ukraine is more important than the border. It’s not one of the top concerns to voters and the war doesn’t seem to threaten American lives at all [Economy and abortion top voter issues ahead of midterms, 4 in 5 say US on wrong track, by Mark Moore, New York Post, May 12, 2021]. Answer: the Ruling Class thinks foreign policy matters more than domestic policy, and after the embarrassing withdrawal from Afghanistan, that the Globalist American Empire must reassert its strength. Ukraine is the perfect opportunity, as well, to weaken the adversary our globalist elites see in Russia, and maintain a tight grip over Europe. Of course, only the Ruling Class benefits from this arrangement. Ordinary Americans don’t.

A fascinating furor is taking place in England, in which the Left’s cognitive dissonance—caused by their living in a comforting world of lies—is on full display. The problem: a POC educator, Indo-Guyanese New Zealand–born  Katharine Birbalsingh, has dared to say, not that girls just wanna have fun exactly, but that they certainly don’t want to do math. All the evidence suggests that she is right, for powerful evolutionary reasons.

Birbalsingh is head teacher (= principal) of Michaela Community School in Wembley, an extremely poor and vibrant area of London. Known as “Britain’s strictest school” [Britain's strictest school gets top marks from Ofsted, by Richard Adams, The Guardian, June 16, 2017], Birbalsingh’s leadership has permitted it, despite all the area’s disadvantages, to achieve outstanding exam results and excellent school inspection ratings.

Birbalsingh, now a self-described conservative although she was a Trotskyite at Oxford, has accomplished this by ignoring every Leftist teaching fad, and returning, as far is legally possible, to traditional teaching and discipline.

As a result, Birbalsingh has been made “social mobility commissioner” by Boris Johnson’s government, because of her demonstrated ability to attain excellent school-leaving certificate (“GCSE,” aged sixteen, and “A-Level,” aged 18) results from poor-background pupils.

But she’s got into trouble because, being a born-again conservative, she has a naïve belief in old-fashioned things such as “science,” the empirical method, “truth” and “telling the truth.”

Last month, she told the U.K. parliament’s “science and technology

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

Earlier: JOHN DERBYSHIRE: *100,000* Afghan Refugees Coming Here???!!! Why Not Settle Them Amid Co-Ethnics In The 'Stans?

Last night, Thursday night, I attended a Center for Immigration Studies event. CIS is based in Washington, D.C. but they hold occasional events in New York City. They have good speakers with interesting things to say about immigration.

These New York events were suspended for the duration of the COVID panic. That panic now being over—by general popular agreement, if not by government declaration—CIS has resumed them. I was glad to be there for this first one following the resumption.

CIS, I should say, has no formal relationship with VDARE.com. They don't endorse anything we say, and we don't endorse anything they say. Our positions are more radical than theirs. For example: To the best of my knowledge, CIS have never called for a total immigration moratorium, as we have. Also, they limit themselves very strictly to immigration issues, not venturing into other topics related to multiculturalism and national identity, as we do.

None of that has prevented the Southern Poverty Law Center and their glove puppets at Wikipedia from designating CIS as an extremist group of hateful racists filled with hate, burning crosses on immigrants' front lawns and so on.

That's for CIS themselves to deal with though—which they do, calmly and professionally.

VDARE.com and CIS are, as I said, unrelated organizations with different approaches. However, sharing CIS's interest in immigration issues, I naturally attend their events when I can, to hear what their invited speakers have to say.

So there I was on Thursday night to hear a Hungarian scholar, Kristóf György Veres, give us his country's perspective on immigration into the West. As a Hungarophile from way back, I was particularly interested in what Dr. Veres had to say.

He did not disappoint. Speaking in excellent English, he took us through some basic issues with the official, UN-sanctioned definitions of terms like "refugee" and "asylum seeker." Then he described the events of the mid-2010s, when people escaping the Syrian civil war, mixed in with opportunists from places further east and south, flooded up through the Balkans. At its south, Hungary has nearly four hundred miles of border with Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia, so the flood hit Hungary with full force.

Hungary responded appropriately; appropriately, I mean, to the ideals of national sovereignty we cherish here at VDARE.com [Ukrainian Refugees and Europe: A Marathon, Not a Sprint, by Kristof Gyorgy Veres and Viktor Marsai, CIS.org, April 2, 2022]. They built a good stout double barrier fence along their southern border and defended it very vigorously against would-be invaders—water cannon, tear gas, nightsticks and hand-to-hand engagement when unavoidable.

Of course the Regime Media hyped the May 6 jobs report [Job Growth Shows Continuing Vigor of U.S. Economy, by Talmon Joseph Smith, NYT, May 6, 2022]. But unreported except here on VDARE.com: immigrants gained the bulk of the new jobs; American employment actually fell. Immigrant displacement of American workers is at an all-time high, resuming its relentless upward march that dates back to Obama’s inauguration. Also, inflation significantly exceeded wage growth. So, contrary to advertisement, Americans’ incomes are falling.

According to the widely-cited Payroll Survey, the economy added back 428,000 jobs in April, as the unemployment rate stayed at 3.6%—slightly above its pre-COVID 3.5%. Labor force participation unexpectedly dipped to 62.2% from March’s 62.4%, suggesting a smaller share of the population was working or looking for work.

"Almost 500,000 workers decided to leave the workforce in April… Currently, there are 11.5 million job openings and only 5.9 million unemployed, causing a large mismatch in labor supply and demand that’s fueling wage growth,” Peter Essele, Head of Portfolio Management for Commonwealth Financial Network, said [April jobs report: Payrolls rise by 428,000 as unemployment rate holds at 3.6%, by Emily McCormick, Yahoo News, May 6, 2022].

We are told incessantly that the labor market is strong, that the demand for labor is far greater than the supply. If true, employers should be raising wages to lure workers back to work. But that didn’t happen: workers are still losing ground to inflation, with average hourly earnings up 5.5%, year-over-year, in April, while the CPI rose at an annualized rate of 8.3% in April [Inflation barreled ahead at 8.3% in April from a year ago, remaining near 40-year highs, by Jeff Cox, CNBC, May 11, 2022].

The Household Employment Survey shows a far bleaker picture of the macro job situation for April: total employment shrank by 353,000—a 0.2% drop—with immigrants (legal and illegal, federal data does not distinguish) gaining jobs while native-born Americans were losing them. One likely explanation for the difference: U.S. businesses are reluctant to acknowledge illegals working “off the books.” This illicit workforce is counted in the Household Employment Survey, but not in the Payroll Employment Survey.

In April:

  • Immigrants gained 274,000 jobs, a 1.0% increase from March
  • Native-born Americans lost 627,000 positions, a 0.5% fall from March
  • Thus VDARE.com’s immigrant employment index, set at 100.0 in January 2009, rose to 131.7 from 130.4 in March, a 1.0% increase
  • VDARE.com’s Native-Born employment index fell to 107.5 from 108.0, a 0.5% decline.

The New VDARE American Worker Displacement Index (NVDAWDI), our name for the ratio of the immigrant to native-born employment growth indexes since January 2009, rose to 122.9 in April from 120.8 in March, a gain of 1.8%.

In the storm that erupted over the leaked draft opinion of Justice Samuel Alito, which would overturn Roe v. Wade, a secondary alarm has arisen among our elites. If Roe is overturned, it is said, a whole raft of Supreme Court rulings rooted in the same principles and legal reasoning could be overturned as well.
