Earlier: Mr. President, We Must Close the Gunshot Gap! So, the second half of 2019 was shootier than the second half of 2018, which was likely the least homicidal year nationally since BLM emerged at Ferguson. The first two months of the pandemic, March and April 2020, were pretty ho-hum at around 30 medical care–requiring shooting incidents per million, but then went up to c. 35 in May and c. 45 ...

Previously: The Del Rio TX Disaster—"Like Watching A Nation Busily Engaged In Heaping Up Its Own Funeral Pyre”

Even the Leftist Regime Media can’t ignore the invasion at the border. At least 12,500 “migrants”—Regime-speak for illegal aliens—mostly of them black Haitians, have crossed into America at Del Rio, Texas [12,000 migrants wait under Del Rio bridge to surrender to Border Patrol, by Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner, September 17, 2021]. The shocking sight of “migrants” swarming unhindered across the Rio Grande in broad daylight shook even the GOP—it  took a break from demanding more Afghan refugees and actually attacked President Biden! The Historic American Nation faces an emergency that the federal government will not address. GOP-controlled border states must act—and, ultimately, a GOP-controlled Congress must impeach and convict Biden and Vice President/ Border Czarina Kamala Harris.

The Del Rio disaster is merely a symptom of Biden’s treasonous Open Borders policy. Consider what this man is doing:

Children are taught that in the American system of government, the legislature introduces a bill, the president may sign it or veto it (which Congress can override), and the Supreme Court determines if the bill is constitutional or not. Of course, the Framers didn't anticipate political parties (which are more important than the perceived differing interests between the different branches of govern...

Earlier: Kathryn Paige Harden—Boadicea Of The “Bravery Signalers”

One of the most significant breakthroughs in understanding race differences in criminality, illegitimacy rates, unemployment, socioeconomic status etc. was quietly made a few years ago by Italian-trained evolutionary anthropologist Davide Piffer. He demonstrated—drawing on publicly available GWAS (Genome-Wide Association Study) data—that there are national differences in the prevalence of alleles associated with high intelligence and that these correlate at 0.9 (almost perfectly) with national differences in IQ. Unsurprisingly to those of us who know that science is now entering a new Dark Age, Piffer had a lot of trouble publishing this ground-breaking finding in an academic journal. Recently, Piffer replicated the finding with the latest GWAS data. But if University of Texas behavioral geneticist Kathryn Paige Harden, the mediagenic author of the just-published book The Genetic Lottery has her way, he’ll have trouble doing this ever again.

Piffer has now thoroughly proven that race differences in intelligence, and thus its correlates such as criminality, are at least partly for genetic reasons. You would think that Paige Harden would be thrilled about this breakthrough. But she is an extreme “Bravery Signaler”—she wants to find a niche as a courageous free-thinker without going too far and being “cancelled.” (I would put Bell Curve co-author Charles Murray in the same category). So she not only dogmatically ignores Piffer’s research but wants to stop independent scholars like him, who are not affiliated to universities, being able to conduct it at all. After all, Piffer, who is not afraid of being cancelled, could use these public data to present the truth in a way that the politic Harden dare not. It’s embarrassing. The solution: Stop people like him from analyzing or even accessing these “public” data!

Emil Kirkegaard, Piffer’s colleague on the truly “open science” journal Open Psychologyno subscription charges, no publication fee (a barrier for independent scholars who lack institutional support) and open peer-review which everyone can read—has some scathing commentary about Paige Harden in his blog Thou shalt not look at polygenic scores,” [September 16, 2021]. The Danish independent scholar notes that “open science”—including the principle of sharing your data—was introduced to make science more transparent and as an insurance measure against the problem of scientific fraud. Other “open science” innovations include “preprints,” where you can publish your results before they have undergone the often snail-pace process of peer-review—a corrupt system which weeds out anti-Woke science as much as it does poor research.

The difficulty of data being publicly available: independent scholars—not constrained by a university that enforces Woke ideology –might analyze these data and present results even if ideologues might find them unpalatable, as we see with the work of Davide Piffer.

In a 2019 tweet, Paige Harden highlighted this, from her semi-Woke perspective, problem:

“Really want a science journalist to write a piece on how open science practices (preprints, open data)—while clearly a net plus for replicability and speed of scientific communication—have made it easier for eugenicist pseudoscience to thrive.”

Earlier: A Former Border Patrol Agent Reports, With Picture, On The THOUSANDS Of Illegals Thronging To The Southern Border

The border between Mexico and the state of Texas is 1,242 miles long, from Brownsville on the Gulf of Mexico to El Paso deep inland, where the state of Texas meets the state of New Mexico. The entire border, all twelve hundred miles, is formed by the Rio Grande river.

About halfway along that border on the Texas side is the town of Del Rio, population 35 thousand, eighty percent of them declaring themselves Latino. Largest employers: a U.S. Air Force base and a prison.

Across the Rio Grande from Del Rio, in Mexico, is the town of Acuña, which is much bigger—four times the population of Del Rio. I imagine the proportion of Acuñans declaring themselves Latino is very close to a hundred percent, but I can't find confirmation of that.

[Research by Edwin S. Rubenstein]

America’s job recovery hit a major speed bump last month as measured by the widely cited survey of business payrolls, which showed the slowest growth since January [Jobs report disappoints — only 235,000 positions added vs. expectations of 720,000, by Jeff Cox, CNBC, September 3, 2021].

EXCLUSIVE TO VDARE.COM: The news is worse than the Regime Media is reporting—immigrants took most of what few new jobs there were. Consequently, American Worker Displacement is inching up again—at exactly the moment when the Biden Administration is scheming to push through an unprecedented Amnesty/ Immigration Surge via the budget reconciliation process and has also allowed the southern border to collapse.

The Biden Rush at the border had never stopped, it just mysteriously dropped out of Regime Media headlines. Now it’s forced its way back [A renewed, intensified crisis at the border, by Byron York, Washington Examiner, September 16, 2021]. The latest data, released Wednesday night, show Southwest border apprehensions at 209,000 in August, the second month running when they exceeded 200,000 and far higher than at any point in the Trump Administration. Contrary to President Biden’s prediction, there was no summer slowdown.

Looked at in detail, this influx is even worse than the raw numbers convey: “unaccompanied minors” and “family units”—essentially undeportable under Biden policies—are up, as are illegals from outside Mexico and the “Northern Triangle.” The entire world is responding to Biden’s  “invitacion” [August Migrant Apprehension Numbers Show the Border Is in Freefall, by Andrew R. Arthur, CIS.org, September 16, 2021]. Over half of those “apprehended” are apparently released into the U.S. [CBP Releases August 2021 Operational Update, September 15, 2021].

This is treason.
