On ItsGoingDown.org, an antifa riot-promoting  site, they say that attempted mass murderer Willem van Spronsen is an attempted immigrant mass murderer—he was born in Holland. They quote him as saying “When I was a boy, in post-war Holland, later France, my head was filled with stories of the rise of fascism in the ’30s. I promised myself that I would not be one of those who stands by as neighbors ...

David French explains why immigrants shouldn’t be as grateful to America as you lazy, overpaid, waste of space natives: I believe every American should be grateful for American liberty and opportunity. But the average immigrant citizen did more to earn their place than the average natural-born citizen. … So who should be the most overwhelmed by gratitude? The person who had to do actual work in t...

“Armed Civil War In Current Year America.” Even as hyperbole, it makes for a sexy headline. So why won’t the failing news media — so desperate for ratings and clicks—talk about the story that’s a far fetch from fake news? Antifa has declared war on America’s border agents and the pro-open border press has declared a media blackout on the details. If you’ve been keeping track of corporate press stor...

From New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo: Call Me ‘They’ The singular “they” is inclusive and flexible, and it breaks the stifling prison of gender expectations. Let’s all use it. Okay, but “they” is not singular, it’s plural. You sound crazy, like the Berkeley stabber, Pablo “They” Gomez, when you ask people to refer to you as “they.” English already has a perfectly good gender-free singu...

While Andrew Yang’s campaign speeches sound like he’s free associating based on reading a lot of 2011 magazine articles about artificial intelligence, Julian Castro’s speeches sound like he hasn’t read anything since 1969. E.g. today Castro called for adding women and non-white Americans to textbooks. Dave Weigel of the Washington Post is following Presidential candidate Julian Castro around: Juli...

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.

I’m still in Mexico!

Note that Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador graciously wished the United States a Happy Fourth— unlike the flag-burning radicals who hate the historic American nation and set Old Glory aflame outside the White House, which didn’t win them any friends with veterans such as myself. Note also that we— the historic Americans who voted for President Trump — have had some good news: Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on Mexico to get its help stopping the illegal-alien invasion has worked. Mexico has, indeed, cracked down: apprehensions at the South West border, a proxy for the illegal alien influx, have fallen. Next un-MSM-heralded step: Mexico won’t object (at least loudly) to Trump’s planned deportations from the U.S!

Here’s the latest on the border. Not great—but at least the immivasion has been reversed:

Recall that Trump told Mexico in no uncertain terms what would happen if it didn’t get control of the illegal-alien tsunami rolling up from Central America: tariffs up to 25 percent. Mexico, as I reported weeks ago, moved troops to the border. And as I observed a week later, rank-and-file Mexicans weren’t unhappy—they agreed with Trump that Mexico must control its borders.

Similarly, Bloomberg.com earlier reported some very heartening news: the number of illegals apprehended in Mexico tripled and those deported from Mexico nearly tripled:

After striking a deal with the U.S. to reduce illegal border crossings, Mexico tripled the number of migrant detentions in June from a year earlier, government statistics show. A total of 29,153 undocumented migrants were apprehended last month, up more than 200% from June 2018, and an increase of 23% from May of this year. Deportations rose 183% from a year earlier to 21,912, up 33% from the previous month, according to National Immigration Institute data.

[After Trump Deal, Mexico’s Detention of Migrants Tripled in June, by Nacha Cattan, July 2, 2019]

Next day, Trump tweeted his gratitude: “Mexico is doing a far better job than the Democrats on the Border. Thank you Mexico!”

Heirsof

Overall, President Donald Trump has disappointed patriots but he’s still set in motion a Republican transformation that can’t be stopped. The top concerns for GOP voters now: building the wall and limiting legal and illegal immigration. Serious Republican candidates for office now have to talk about immigration to maintain grassroots credibility—or else, like Justin Amash, quit before they are fired [Justin Amash Officially Quits House Republicans and Steps Down From Committee Seat, by Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Reason, July 9, 2019]. Rather than being a revolutionary candidate, President Trump may have just been a transitional one, between the old conservative Republicans of the past and the New National Conservatism (nothing to do with the neutered version now frantically peddled by Yoram Hazony et al) of the future. New leaders are emerging to take up the MAGA mantle—and old leaders are adapting.

Here, in order of least promising to most promising, are my predictions of the heirs to MAGA.

Senator Tom Cotton looked like the early favorite to me. His resumé is essentially perfect. He’s young, a combat vet, a Harvard graduate, and a favorite of the Beltway Right. You may scoff but that matters—without Beltway Right intransigence, Trump would have won Minnesota because you wouldn’t have had Evan McMullin.

Cotton is more disciplined than Trump and won’t pick the stupid, distracting, and unnecessary fights that could still cost the president re-election. [What to Know in Washington: Low Approval Holding Trump Back, by Zachary Sherhood and Brandon Lee, Bloomberg, June 18, 2019]

Tom Cotton has also shown real leadership on immigration and related issues. He called for the IRS to investigate the patriot-persecuting Southern Poverty Law Center. He re-introduced the RAISE Act, which would reform the immigration system and slash legal immigration. He shows awareness of the dangers automation poses to American workers. He understands that mass immigration undermines the sense of community any country relies on. He blasts elites who think citizenship is “meaningless” and says immigration is not “just another issue.”[Immigration in the National Interest, by Senator Tom Cotton, Imprimis, October 2017] In short, he gets it—at least part of it.

What’s the problem? Cotton doesn’t get it on foreign policy. (Perhaps this is why the Beltway likes him). He wants to go back to the bad old Bush days of foreign wars in the Middle East. He has already called for direct military action against Iran, which could start a war the U.S. can ill-afford financially and morally. Republicans can’t credibly argue against Democrat “socialism” on the grounds of expenditure if they are willing to blow trillions on wars for dubious interests.

This is disqualifying.

Ted Cruz often said the right things during the 2016 campaign, including highlighting immigration’s negative effects on wages. He even backed then-Senator Jeff Sessions in calling for a minimum wage for H1-B workers of $110,000, which would dry up the market instantly. He won the endorsements of Steve King and Tom Tancredo and portrayed himself as an anti-Amnesty leader

See, earlier: “East is East And West is West”: What The Hazony/Brog Heresy Hunt Says About July’s “National Conservative Conference”

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes: Yoram Hazony [Email him] continues his impossiblequest, trying to co-opt National Conservatismwhile trying to repress the reality of its ethnic dimension. This has gotten him into trouble with e.g. me, for the regrettable dishonesty and hypocrisy that this quest entails, and also with his fellow Jews like Gabriel Schoenfeld, who remain allergic to their host countries’ national identities even in Hazony’s neutered form.[Is There a Benign Trumpian Nationalism? (Christopher DeMuth thinks so. I think not.)by Gabriel Schoenfeld, Niskanen Center, July 9, 2019]

However, Hazony is apparently sufficiently powerful, or well-financed, to attract eager courtiers. One of them is John Zmirak  a professional Catholic and long-standing VDARE.com contributor whom I’ve known for some 20 years and with whom I’ve never previously had a cross word. Zmirak inserted himself into an exchange between Hazony and Kevin MacDonald to virtue-signal against us. MacDonald can look after himself, but I append my twitter response, which speaks for itself and shows what these dark times are doing to ambitious, silly weaklings.

Zmirak has reportedly continued to twitter on, but he’s now intolerantly blocked both my personal account and VDARE.com, and I haven’t yet bothered to take the simple steps to get around it. I will ask him here, however, what I might have asked him on Twitter: how come he was so happy to work for, and has never denounced, the great Taki Theodoracopulos, whose clashes with Jews were provoking the usual accusations of anti-Semitism long before VDARE.com even existed?

When Sir Kim Darroch's secret cable to London was leaked to the Daily Mail, wherein he called the Trump administration "dysfunctional ... unpredictable ... faction-riven ... diplomatically clumsy and inept," the odds on his survival as U.K. ambassador plummeted.

When President Donald Trump's tweeted retort called Darroch "wacky," a "stupid guy" and "pompous fool" who had been "foisted on the US," the countdown to the end began.

The fatal blow came when, in a debate with his rival for prime minister, Boris Johnson, who will likely replace Theresa May before the end of July, left Darroch twisting in the wind.

All in all, a bad week for the British Foreign Office when one of its principle diplomats is virtually declared persona non grata in country that is Great Britain's foremost ally. All the goodwill from Trump's state visit in June was torched in 72 hours.

Still, Darroch's departure is far from the most egregious or grave episode of a leaked missive in U.S. diplomatic history.
