Boris Johnson’s dramatic Brexit election victory is a dramatic demonstration that the Ruling Class hasn’t smothered nationalism in the UK at least. But it’s trying, everywhere. The term “National Conservatism” is already being co-opted, and now the term “nationalism” itself is apparently to be neutered, by Cuckservative Review Editor Rich Lowry in his new book The Case for Nationalism.

Lowry can’t have liked this assignment from his gatekeeping paymasters: inevitably, Leftists have attacked the book, forcing Lowry to defend it against charges of (guess what?) “racism.” But Lowry’s faux-nationalism does not include acknowledging the WASP ethnic core that created this country and its institutions, or the Historic American Nation, the nation as it had evolved up until the 1965 Immigration Act disaster. Though Lowry claims to deny that America is a Proposition Nation, his version of nationalism appears to be a Hazonyish evasion of ethnic reality not really different from the “nation of ideas” pushed by Open Borders activists and neoconservatives.

Conservatism Inc. is trying to suck the life out of nationalism the way it did from the Tea Party. It’s more important than ever that genuine American nationalists become an independent political force.  

Naturally, Leftists are afraid of “nationalism”—even the word. The Washington Post’s Carlos Lozada [Tweet him] wrote a blistering review accusing Lowry of playing word games [The inherently, intrinsically, and inevitably flawed case for American nationalism, October 31, 2019]. “Nationalism cannot be bad because Lowry has defined it as good, rendering The Case for Nationalism a book-length study in begging the question,” he wrote.

On Friday, December 13, the New York Times front-paged a rather unusual opinion piece that was not a typical liberal celebration of the impeachment process. Instead, it warned that the current effort to remove President Trump was a dangerous escalation of politics in Washington. The article noted that the filibuster was once a rare tactic, but now it is commonplace. In the same way, impeachment c...

“No man is a hero to his valet" is one of those brilliant aphorisms attributed to a million different people. Yet I’m less concerned with who said it than whether or not it’s true: I’m not quite Peter Brimelow’s valet, but I’ve worked for him for many years. And my admiration has only increased. His book Alien Nation was a wake-up call for me when I was a young Conservative Inc activist. Peter is a...

As I’ve often mentioned, a striking example of the dysfunction of our social discourse is how we can make almost no progress on what ought to be one of our country's least intractable problems—Latino littering—because everytime anybody (e.g., Tucker Carlson, Amy Wax, or Ann Coulter) points out that we have a Latino littering problem, the Conventional Wisdom shrieks in outrage over this Blood Libel....

Left Twitter is in shock this morning after Boris Johnson won a crushing majority, utterly routing Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. There are the usual cries of doom and gloom from Labourites, who, like the Democrats here, have become the party of hysterical shrieking.

While the Tories consistently held the lead throughout the campaign, there were some polls showing that the race was tightening. Remember, former Prime Minister Theresa May held a strong lead before she called an election to strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations. But she barely squeaked by with a coalition government. It looked like it was going to happen again.

But it didn’t. Boris Johnson has a clear mandate to "Get Brexit Done."

One key difference between Johnson and May: the Conservatives campaigned on a strong immigration platform this time. This was wise, especially considering that many people link “Brexit” with “border control.” 

However, the main issue was Brexit. The fact I can recall Johnson's slogan so easily explains a great deal about Johnson's victory. Health care, terrorism, mandatory sentences, Israel, socialism and other things were all discussed. Yet from beginning to end, Boris Johnson had one clear message–“Get Brexit Done.”

President Trump has apparently been persuaded that he can dramatically increase his black support with “Criminal Justice Reform” a.k.a. relaxation and other tactics like increased funding for black universities and rescuing black rappers from criminal punishment. It’s all part of his major black outreach effort. Some polls suggest it’s working; common sense and more serious surveys say it isn’t. But this outreach is distracting him from appealing to the people who voted for him. Even worse, it’s harming the country.

Part of the effort is Black Voices for Trump, which the campaign launched last month with a six-figure ad buy in black media [Donald Trump Campaign Newspaper and Radio Ads Highlight Accomplishments for the Black Community,  Blog4 President.com, November 13, 2019] The New York Times’  Peter Baker believes the outreach is less about black votes and more about calming skittish white suburbanites who might be uncomfortable with Trump’s “incendiary” rhetoric. Allegedly, these moves reassure them that Trump is not a racist [Trump Reaches Out to Black Voters, November 8, 2019].

Maybe, but Trump’s outreach goes far beyond photo ops and staged events. It shapes policies. And Trump World (Javanka?) wrongly believes it is winning over black voters.

Three recent polls appeared to confirm that fantasy. Rasmussen, Emerson College, and Marist show black approval of Trump at about 34 percent [Trump Approval Among Blacks Tops 34 Percent in Emerson Poll, by Petr Svab, The Epoch Times, November 24, 2019]. Trump supporters and conservative media claim the surveys are proof Trump’s black strategy is working [Trump is gaining black voters — that's terrible news for Democrats, by Liz Peek, Fox News, December 2, 2019].

"Quid pro quo" was the accusatory Latin phrase most often used to describe President Donald Trump's July 25 phone call asking for a "favor" from the president of Ukraine.

New Year's prediction: The Roman poet Horace's Latin depiction: "Parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus"—"The mountains went into labor, and brought forth a mouse"—will be used to describe the articles of impeachment drawn up by Nancy Pelosi's House.

Earlier by  Ann Coulter: Donald Trump—STILL Right About Mexican Rapists

With the impeachment nonsense making TV news unwatchable, I’ve been catching up on “Law & Order SVU” recently.

The scripts involve the sort of real-life crimes that are a lot more common since our country has become “diverse,” such as child rape and incest. But the child-rapists are never diverse, as they are in real life. No, the perps are always blond, blue-eyed American men.

In fact, the modern American white male is the least rapey, most gentle, protective, chivalrous creature God has ever created. Get ready for a gigantic I TOLD YOU SO when American women realize that, from 1620 to the day Ted Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act kicked in, they never had it so good.

I wouldn’t mention it, except for “Law & Order SVU.” It would be as if the writers portrayed New York City as a sleepy little burg and Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, as a fast-paced metropolis, jam-packed with skyscrapers.

In one episode titled “Zero Tolerance,” a white American male sells illegal alien girls to other white American men in a sex trafficking scheme that was somehow enabled by Trump ... SEPARATING CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS AT THE BORDER!!!
