HANSON: The U.S. is coasting on the fumes of past greatness, following the Roman road to ruins
The Washington Times
By A.D. 200, the Roman republic was a distant memory. Few citizens of the global Roman Empire even knew of their illustrious ancestors such as Scipio or Cicero. Millions no longer spoke Latin. Italian emperors were rare. There were no national elections.
Yet Rome endured as a global power for three more centuries. What held it together?
A stubborn common popular culture and the prosperity of Mediterranean-wide standardization kept things going. The Egyptian, the Numidian, the Iberian and the Greek assumed that everything from Roman clay lamps and glass to good roads and plentiful grain were available to millions throughout the Mediterranean.
As long as the sea was free of pirates, thieves cleared from the roads, and merchants allowed to profit, few cared whether the lawless Caracalla or the unhinged Elagabalus was emperor in distant Rome.
Something likewise both depressing and encouraging is happening to the United States. Few Americans seem to worry that our leaders have lied to or misled Congress and the American people without consequences.
Most young people cannot distinguish the First Amendment from the Fourth Amendment — and do not worry that they cannot. Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln are mere names of grammar schools but otherwise unidentifiable to most.
Separatism is thought to bring dividends. In California, universities conduct separate graduation ceremonies predicated on race — sometimes difficult given the increasingly mixed ancestry of Americans.
As in Rome, there is a vast disconnect between elites and the common people. Almost half of Americans receive some sort of public assistance, and half pay no federal income tax. About one-seventh of Americans are on food stamps.
Yet housing prices in elite enclaves — Manhattan, Cambridge, Santa Monica, Palo Alto — are soaring. The wealthy like to cocoon themselves in Roman-like villas, safe from the real-life ramifications of their own utopian ideology. . . .
"Officially, America celebrates diversity; privately, America is fragmenting into racial, political and ideological camps."
So true. Neocons and libertarians can write beautifully about painfully true realities, and yet always leaving out or only briefly touching upon the core problem. Rome, as well and Egypt and Greece, fell when its founding genetic stock was assimilated away, even if it took a couple of hundred years or so of their pathetically teetering along before the end finally came. This process is now taking place in all Western 'Celebrate Diversity!' nations.
Although the next big evil mass amnesty will mean signing America's demographic death certificate as a Western nation, invasion and vastly differential birthrates have already locked into place our doom, even if European Americans were to double their current birthrate.
There will eventually need to be a one or more white ethno-states or the West will be gone as much as the people of Easter Island are now just so many stone heads facing out to sea, no doubt to be studied by archaeologists and historians from future advanced nations of coherent peoples and cultures, such as Japan or China.

South African Girl, 13, whacks robber with walking stick (Let's appoint Jemma de Gaspary US Secretary of Homeland Security)
Girl, 13, whacks robber with walking stick
Durban - A brave 13-year-old girl repeatedly kicked and hit a robber on his head with a walking stick to stop him from throttling her granny.
These people are always said to be 'robbers'--never murderers.
Jemma de Gaspary said on Thursday she had not hesitated to fight off the robber because it was a matter of life and death for her 75-year-old gran, Elizabeth Shepherd.
Since the robbery on Wednesday afternoon, the Grade 8 pupil at St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls, Kloof, has been sleeping with her baseball bat next to her.
More and more whites around the world will be partaking in that adventure.
Shepherd, who sustained bruises to her neck, said the robber had gained entry into her well-secured Gillitts complex through the front door.
She said she had gone to the doctor and then fetched Jemma from her home, a few streets away, to visit her for the afternoon.
Her 81-year-old husband, Roy, a financial consultant, was at work.
Shepherd said: “It was about 4pm when we returned home. The front door was unlocked. But I did not think anything because the maid was still there.”
As she entered the house, Shepherd said she saw someone move very quickly into her bedroom.
“I thought it was the maid. I walked in her direction to go to speak to her. As I entered my bedroom I saw a young man crouching at the side of the bed,” she said, adding the domestic worker had been in the toilet when the robber gained entry into the complex.
How convenient Doesn't say race of maid, but typically it is a trusted black domestic worker who allows home-invasion robber-murderers inside.
The entire room had been ransacked and the couple’s belongings were strewn on the floor and bed. Shepherd said the robber must have been in the house for at least 15 minutes. She screamed when she saw him and tried to run.
“He came after me. He grabbed me from behind and began throttling me. I tried to fight him off but he just tightened his grip around my neck.”
Jemma, alerted by her grandmother’s screams, ran to help.
“He was throttling my gran and I could see that she was battling to breathe. I charged right at him. I kicked him and screamed at him to let my gran go. I told him that he was hurting her.”
She said that when the robber failed to release her granny, she ran down the passage and fetched one of her grandfather’s walking sticks.
“I whacked him repeatedly on the head with the stick and kicked him on the hip. He did not know what was happening. I doubt he expected to get a hiding.”
Jemma said the robber ripped her grandmother’s gold and pearl necklace from her neck.
“I ran outside with the stick and waited for him. When he came out of the house I started hitting him again. He tried to grab me but I just hit back even harder. He eventually gave up and ran off.”
She said she chased after him, but he disappeared down the street. Shepherd said her granddaughter was a “brave young girl”.
“She was relentless. She hammered him with the walking stick. Her grandfather collects walking sticks. She chose the biggest and fattest one to launch her attack. I am really proud of her and grateful that no harm came to her.”
Shepherd said Jemma had called the police, but they only pitched at 7pm - three hours later.
Arrived in the nick of time.
“Thankfully our neighbours and community came to our assistance. They were fantastic.”
This is the second time Shepherd has been attacked. In April she was fetching her mail from her box at the Gillitts post office when she was choked by a thief.
Typical South African white person's taped-to-the-fridge To-Do List: feed cat; water plants; pick up mail; get chocked ...
“He just came up from behind me. He said, ‘sorry to interrupt you’, and seconds later he was choking me.” Shepherd said her screams foiled his attempt to steal her jewellery.
“This is all too much for me. I am not safe in or outside my house. I stay indoors with everything locked and bolted; I cannot live like this. At our age it is also an impossible task to move. We are like sitting ducks.”
Says it all. Yet where is all this ever reported in most of the mainstream media?
Jemma described crime as “bad” in KwaZulu-Natal and said her worst fear was that criminals were getting “smarter and smarter”, finding new ways to commit crime.
Desperate to divide up the last of the white honey pot.
“That is terrifying because we do not know when they are going to strike, and how.”
Police confirmed the incident.
Nikki Moolman, of the Ward 10 (Kloof) safety and security committee, said they were concerned about the high crime rate.
Moolman said they had written to Community Safety and Liaison MEC Willies Mchunu to redeploy the police Tactical Response Team (TRT) to the area.
Yep, just keep writing them letters.

Oxford sex grooming gang jailed for life
Members of an Oxford gang who groomed vulnerable young girls for sex, repeatedly raping them and threatening to kill them if they told anyone, have been jailed for life.
The seven men, including two sets of brothers, had been found guilty last month of a catalogue of offences including rape, trafficking and organising prostitution.
Sentencing the men at the Old Bailey on Thursday, Judge Peter Rook said: “These were sexual crimes of the upmost gravity. The depravity was extreme, each victim was groomed, coerced and intimidated.”
Judge Rook jailed brothers Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, for a minimum of 17 years telling them they had been found guilty of “exceptionally grave crimes”.
Mohammed Karrar, 38, of Kames Close, Oxford, will serve at least 20 years after being convicted of 18 offences including child rape and trafficking. Bassam Karrar, 34, of Hundred Acres Close, Oxford, will serve at least 15 years.
Co-defendant Kamar Jamil, 27, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 12 years. . . .
Is it just me or does this article heading sound as if the entire gang was jailed for life, when it does not seem as if anyone was so jailed, if you take into account the "minimum term" of the few who did get 'life'?
These sorts of things always show how hostile the ruling elites of Western nations have become. Apparently law enforcement and social services were letting this slide for a long time. Now imagine what would have happened it we were to reverse the players and white Christians had been practicing this sort of sex slavery against innocent Muslim girls. The UK would have shut down for a day of mourning, with the pulling of hair, the gnashing of teeth and the rending of garments, topped off by the Queen issuing a tearful apology while wearing a burqa.
Meanwhile our 'leaders' are literally willing to see us raped, prostituted, mugged, murdered and of course unemployed and generally dispossessed in order to maintain the ruling order and its rabid open-borders policies intended to end Western civilization and its peoples. And these evil fools have been unbelievably successful--so far.

The Founding Conservatives by David Lefer (But why has conservatism failed so miserably to fight Multicultural Marxism?)
William F. Buckley, foremost rhetorical 'conservative'
THE FOUNDING CONSERVATIVES: HOW A GROUP OF UNSUNG HEROES SAVED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
By David Lefer

By David Lefer
Sentinel, $29.95, 406 pages
In this splendid narrative history centered largely in the years between the Declaration of Independence and the ratification of our Constitution, David Lefer, historian and professor at New York University’s Polytechnic Institute, points out that it was a chaotic period, in many ways not dissimilar to our own, “a time of war without end; of real estate crashes, rampant speculation, and mounting public debt; of popular outrage at bankers and merchants … of bitter disputes over taxation; and of such animosity between left and right that it frequently left Congress paralyzed for months on end.”
Given the turbulence and the recognizable similarities, writes Mr. Lefer, “it’s unsurprising that the Founders reacted more like us than their impassive marble likenesses would lead us to believe.” This will no doubt upset many of what Mr. Lefer calls “consensus historians.” But that, in part, may be one of his objectives.
To bring the period and its complexities to life, Mr. Lefer takes us behind those “impassive marble likenesses” and focuses largely on the men, neglected by history, he thinks are the “unsung heroes” of our Revolution.
Among them, John Dickinson of Pennsylvania, drafter of the Articles of Confederation . . .
As for theme, writes Mr. Lefer, “This book makes three main arguments. First is that the founding conservatives saved the American Revolution . Second, the founding conservatives brought modern capitalism to America.” And third, “we should no longer look to Britain for the origins of American conservatism. Modern conservatism was born at the moment of independence [and] America’s conservative heritage reflects our nation’s unique history and culture.” . . .
The major knock against democracies is that they degenerate into mob rule, with ever larger numbers of people voting themselves ever greater public benefits. And yet, lucky us, we have been experiencing the worst of both worlds.
On the one hand, we have indeed been degenerating into mob rule, while on the other, our hostile ruling elites, many of them 'conservative,' often have been much more radical than the European American majority, who oftentimes demonstrates a common sense conservationism on things like open borders, massive legal immigration, affirmative action/discrimination against whites, law enforcement, etc, but who are then completely and contemptuously ignored by their smirking elected 'leaders.'
A big part of this is that while capitalism in some form is needed for economic freedom, it can also have radical mob-rule tendencies, which we have seen with many mainstream fast-buck cheap-labor open-borders globalist 'conservatives' and neoconservatives.
Enjoys purging its writers who dare to be conservative.
Yes, by all means, gun rights, but isn't this a deliberate firing-up-the-Right distraction? Once the US and other Western nations are overwhelmingly made up of third-world populations, how long will guns protect whites against hostile (eventually including local) governments, confiscatory taxation, home invasion robberies, rapes and murders (even with a gun, you only have to slip up once, allow one opening and you and your family are gone) and being burned out by fire. White farmers in Africa have found that owning a gun doesn't help all that much once they are standing on top of a pile of ashes.
If the giants of modern conservationism, like William F. Buckley and his Nation Review, cannot see the connection between conservatism and saving Western civilization, it makes conservatism more deceptively dangerous than liberalism or Multicultural Marxism that at least openly tries to dilute and destabilize the West at every turn, and is overwhelmingly winning--for now.
Recall that Soviet Communism was once considered in the vanguard of history. How could anything so well intentioned fail? Of course this is the problem with any government utopia: eventual failure is built-in.
