Here’s one you haven’t heard about. I happened upon it by sheer accident.

Antwon Rose II was a 17-year-old boy shot by an East Pittsburgh police officer in June 2018 after he bolted from a jitney car that had been stopped by the officer. The Times published about a half-dozen stories on Antwon Rose—or as the Times calls him, “Antwon, who was unarmed.”

After the officer was acquitted on all charges in March of this year, the Times ran an article by Adeel Hassan on the verdict.

Here’s what you would learn from the Times:

  • Antwon was unarmed.
  • Antwon “was in his high school’s honors program.”
  • Antwon “played basketball and the saxophone.”
  • Antwon “volunteered for a local charity.”
  • In 2016, Antwon wrote a poem titled, “I Am Not What You Think!” which included these lines:

I see mothers bury their sons
I want my Mom to never feel that pain.

  • A policeman stopped the gold Chevy Cruze Antwon “was riding in” because it “matched the description” of a car “involved” in a drive-by shooting minutes earlier.
  • The jury consisted of nine whites and three African Americans.

If you read the Times piece, all you would know is that an honor student who loved his mom ... was KILLED for the crime of riding in a car similar to one that had just been used in a crime.

Wow. Just wow.

Here are some of the facts the Times left out:

Tucker Carlson is back from his Canadian fishing trip, and he began his return show with an analysis of Joe Biden’s campaign and some of its backstory. The former Vice President is running at the top of the polls, with none of the other hopefuls within striking distance. Still, candidate Biden is bringing back old memories of his gaffe-prone self, along with his general cluelessness. Tucker focused...

Race-denialism is all over the Western world—the notion that race itself is a sort of optical illusion; that different races can, after a bit of social engineering, be brought to present the same statistical profiles on all traits; that when they present different profiles the only possible explanation is malice on the part of white people; these are the great dogmas of our age [Antiracism, Our Flawed New Religion, by John McWhorter, Daily Beast, March 14,2017 ] carved on stone slabs and worshipfully preserved in the temples of our culture. Here's a cute example: the epidemic of knife crime that has been plaguing Britain for several years past.

Guns are hard to get in Britain (although not that hard). So the more commonplace types of lethal interpersonal violence—notably underclass gang warfare—are stabbings with knives.

Where the soundtrack to a warm night in Chicago, Baltimore, or Detroit features gunshots, the corresponding audio for London, Birmingham, or Manchester is of metal blades penetrating human flesh.

This is quite a new thing. Yes, yes, I know about Jack the Ripper. Statistically, though—culturally—knife crime has not been a British thing.

See, earlier Google Blacklist Revealed—Christians, Conservatives AND VDARE.com Targeted

I learned last week from a Silicon Valley whistleblower, who spoke with the intrepid investigative team at Project Veritas, that my namesake news and opinion website is on a Google blacklist.

Thank goodness the Big Tech giant hasn't taken over the newspaper syndication business yet. Twenty years of column writing have allowed me to break news and disseminate my opinions without the tyranny of social justice algorithms downgrading or whitewashing my words. But given the toxic metastasis of social media in every aspect of our lives, especially for those who make their living exercising the First Amendment, it may only be a matter of time before this column somehow falls prey to the Google Ministry of Truth, too.

Armed with internal memos and emails, former Google software engineer Zachary Vorhies exposed how MichelleMalkin.com (online since 1999) was placed on a news blacklist banning my content from appearing on newsfeeds accessed through Android Google products. I do not advocate violence, publish porn or indulge in vulgarity or profanity (other than my occasional references to Beltway crapweasels). But I triggered the Google Social Credit System and there's no going back.

James Fulford writes: The proposal to buy Greenland, mooted about by America's  real estate mogul President, reminds us that territories do change hands, and for money. This article, headlined “A Modest (?) Proposal”, was first published in Forbes, March 27, 1995, in the context of what Wikipedia calls the “Mexican Peso Crisis”, which President Bill Clinton responded to by sending 20 billion US dollars south as a loan. (Mexico actually paid it back, which no one expected.)

Peter Brimelow's alternative proposal was this article, which we republished this in 2002, Brimelow writing at the time that:  

I enjoyed writing this article, which the former and great Editor of Forbes, James W. Michaels, held out for a cycle while he pondered the possible reaction and which got me on the front page of the Tijuana paper (twice) and denounced on Mexico City radio.  Seven years and maybe 2 million net Mexican immigrants later, I still think—why not? Could it be worse than the current situation? Ironically, given the penultimate paragraph, it's now Mexico that seeks to micromanage U.S. immigration and other policies.

All numbers are much bigger now, and Mexico’s meddling in US politics continues. We are still, as Peter Brimelow wrote in 1995, “getting the Mexicans”, and Baja is still a “real estate developer’s dream”.

WHILE WAVING FAREWELL to $20 billion of U.S. taxpayers' money as it starts its perilous trip South of the Border under the terms of the Clinton Administration's Mexican peso bail-out, we can't help pondering this Modest Proposal:

Wouldn't it be simpler to go back to one of the early versions of the 1853 Gadsden Purchase—and just buy Baja California? 

James Gadsden was sent to Mexico by President Franklin Pierce, charged with buying enough land for a transcontinental railroad route around the Rockies. But American and Mexican negotiators also discussed more sweeping alternatives that suggest Baja California was then valued at around $10 million.

0000whynotbaja

That $10 million adds up to about $180 million in today's purchasing power. And it represented a proportion of U.S. 1853 GDP that by a happy coincidence is now equivalent to . . . $23 billion!

I argued for “National Conservatism” in 2014, referring to a specific European tradition that puts the unity and cultural survival of the nation-state first. Put bluntly—the economy exists to serve the nation, not the nation the economy. Of course, I am appalled that the Main Stream Media has finally acknowledged “National Conservatism” at the very moment when (and probably because) it threatens to become irrelevant. Yoram Hazony’s “National Conservatism” racket is clearly gatekeeping, designed to direct nationalist energies into non-threatening dead ends. Nevertheless, the Left and its pet “conservatives” condemn even this housebroken version of National Conservatism. My current thinking: even if President Trump fails utterly, there’s no going back to Reagan-Bush “conservatism.” The only question: genuine nationalism—or separatism?

In 2014, I thought Senator Jeff Sessions, with his attacks on Big Tech (the “Masters of the Universe”), cheap labor, and mass immigration was transforming the GOP into a “National Conservative” party. Senator Sessions’ early endorsement of Donald Trump seemed the launch of a real movement. President Trump’s election after routing Conservatism Inc. dogma represented its triumph. The split between Sessions and Trump was a catastrophe—by prompting this conflict, the discredited Russia Hoax actually succeeded.  

Labels matter. The term “Alt Right” meant different things in 2010, 2015, 2017, and today. It remains to be seen if “National Conservatism” can be recaptured from the gatekeepers. Some of the figures at the Hazony conference could lead electorally viable national movements, notably Tucker Carlson and Senator Josh Hawley.

Yet I have my doubts. MAGA was co-opted, arguably within the first 48 hours. In Steve Bannon’s words, the “Original Sin” of the Trump Administration was to align himself with the congressional GOP agenda of tax cuts for the rich and an incoherent health care plan. National Conservatism might be dead now too.

Still, its ghost is enough to scare professional Token Conservative George Will, who attacked National Conservatism as “Elizabeth Warren Conservatism”—

Tucker Carlson says that what Senator Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) calls “economic patriotism” sounds like “Donald Trump at his best.” Carlson approves of how Warren excoriates U.S. companies’ excessive “loyalty” to shareholders. She wants the government to “act aggressively” and “intervene in markets” in order to stop “abandoning loyal American workers and hollowing out American cities.” Carlson darkly warns that this “pure old-fashioned economics” offends zealots “controlled by the banks.”
