An NYT opinion columnist has a sudden revelation: America’s Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals. The demise of a California housing measure shows how progressives abandon progressive values in their own backyards.

The old saying that academic politics are so vicious because the stakes are low is a little misleading: the stakes can be very high for individual academics, determining whether they have a job or are out on the street. For example, as I pointed out in my new review of Jared Diamond’s latest book, Upheaval, cultural anthropologists routinely rage against Diamond because people like Bill Gates read ...

Quentin Tarantino’s primary subject matters, even when he was a young director, have been middle-aged masculinity and movie glamor. He likes old Hollywood tough guys. So, the trailer for his upcoming movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” looks promising. It has something to do with the 1969 Manson murders, but it appears to have more to do with a fictionalized 1960s tough guy actor in the James Co...

Addtext com mtcyodq0mjk3mzmSee, earlier: "Actually, There Has Always Been Migration"—But In Those Days They Called It Invading!

Can we have a quick reality check and acknowledge that what is happening to America is a million times worse than what's happening in Europe and is of much greater consequence?

Conservatives regularly point to the mass migration afflicting Europe as if it's the Ghost of Christmas Future for America. Since waves of Third World migrants began sweeping into the European Union, we've seen terrorism, knifings, rape gangs and riots popping up all over the birthplace of Western civilization. Sweden has gone from a country where rape was essentially nonexistent to the Rape Capital of the World.

It's sweet of Americans to be so concerned about Europe, but maybe they should look at their own country. On account of a mass immigration policy imposed on us by our government, the United States has undergone a transformation unprecedented in all of world history.

From 1620 to 1970, the U.S. was demographically stable—not to be confused with "a nation of immigrants." The country was about 85% to 90% white, almost entirely British, German, French and Dutch, and 10% to 15% African American. (The American Indian population, technically in their own nations, steadily plummeted—an example of how vast numbers of new people can displace the old, both accidentally and on purpose.)

As Steve writes below, and at TakiMag, people are "coming for" Jared Diamond for being stale, pale, and male. Anand Giridharadas wrote an article attacking Diamond's latest book, in a review, which both Alex Griswold and skeptic Michael Shermer insist is nothing more than nitpicking, however, they can't deny that Diamond is, in fact, an old white guy, and Giridharadas is not only younger than him, ...

We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy.

Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as "despicable" and "damaging."

Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the proposal discussed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday to ban government aid to residents of HUD who shelter illegal immigrants. The rule change would end a Clinton-era regulation that allowed immigrants to obtain aid without having to disclose whether they were here legally. The Trump plan could free up an estimated 32,000 public housing slots, according to HUD, as 1.6 million applicants nationwide wait to be considered.

Democratic Rep. Juan Vargas of San Diego County couldn't believe Carson could be so "mean-spirited" in prioritizing law-abiding people over law-breaking ones.

My wife and I have two sons, now  in their mid to late teens

All their life, our sons have been traveling between Mexico and the U.S.   When we lived in Mexico, we would visit the U.S.  After moving to the U.S., we would visit Mexico.

So either way, we were traveling back and forth between the two countries since the boys were babies.

I had a little speech I would deliver to the boys when our car crossed the bridge approached the checkpoint.  I told the boys to be serious, don’t try to be funny with the border officials, and just answer the questions.

When we would arrive at the checkpoint, I would show the official our credentials.  After seeing those, the border agent would open the door to where the boys were sitting and ask them if we were their parents.

Why? Because, especially these days, smugglers kidnap and rent kids to “migrants”—the Main Stream Media’s new lying term for “illegal aliens”—who can use them an excuse to stay here. In other words, Dem/ MSM caterwauling about “caging children,“ combined with the massive influx of illegal aliens  as a result of the Kritarch-imposed policy of Catch and Release (nearly 110,000 in April), has in fact resulted in a massive INCREASE in child abuse.

As Brian Hastings, operations chief for Customs and Border Protection, has said: “The word of mouth and social media quickly gets back to those in the Northern Triangle countries, that if you bring a child you’ll be successful”. [Press Briefing—CBP Releases Fiscal Year 2019 Migration Stats, March 5, 2019]

Even Univision says every “migrant” should bring at least one. A segment helpfully curated by the conservative Media Research Center ends by declaring that “the American Dream is now possible through children.” [Taking ‘Deep Dive’ Into Border Crisis, Univision Reveals Kids Are a 'Kind of Visa' Into USA, by MRC Latino Staff, April 5, 2019]

Our foolish policies inspire Central American illegals to do really stupid and dangerous things.  And it’s the children who suffer.

During my most recent trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, I pondered President Donald J. Trump’s struggle to protect the Historic American Nation from demographic displacement via immivasion at the southwest border and a never-ending stream of legal-but-hostile immigrants. Given the chance, the Open-borders globalists who oppose Trump would do the same to the Historic Japanese Nation. But just as we have Trump (maybe), Japan has Makoto Sakurai, the leader of the Japan First  group, which wants to stop immigration and keep Japan for the Japanese.

News-wise, though, Japan First isn’t the only or most recent positive development.

For example, another is the moving celebration of Japanese identity in welcoming the new imperial era, Reiwa, which began on May 1. The new emperor is His Imperial Majesty Naruhito, the son of Akihito, now the emperor emeritus. Directly descended from the Amaterasu, the goddess who created Japan, the emperor symbolizes and personifies the nation. That creation myth forms the basis of Japanese unity and uniqueness. They rightly believe themselves a race and a culture apart from all others.

A week from today, Europeans may be able to gauge how high the tide of populism and nationalism has risen within their countries and on their continent.

For all the returns will be in from three days of elections in the 28 nations represented in the European Parliament.

Expectation: Nationalists and populists will turn in their strongest performance since the EU was established, and their parliamentary group—Europe of Nations and Freedom—could sweep a fourth of the seats in Strasbourg.

Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party is predicted to run first in the British elections, winning two to three times the votes of the ruling Tory Party of Prime Minister Theresa May.
