Patrick J. Buchanan: Immigration: How the GOP Lost Middle America - "If Bush I had built that border fence back in 1992 and declared a moratorium on legal immigration that fall, as many implored him to do, the party of the Bushes would not be facing its demise well before midcentury."

Immigration: How the GOP Lost Middle America

Out of the Republican retreat on Maryland's Eastern shore comes word that the House leadership is raising the white flag of surrender on immigration.
The GOP will agree to halt the deportation of 12 million illegal aliens, and sign on to a blanket amnesty. It only asks that the 12 million not be put on a path to citizenship.
Sorry, but losers do not dictate terms. Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO says amnesty is no longer enough. Illegal aliens must be put on a path to citizenship and given green cards to work—and join unions.
Rep. Paul Ryan and the Wall Street Journal are for throwing in the towel. Legalize them all and start them on the path to citizenship.
A full and final capitulation. Let's get it over with.
To understand why and how the Republican Party lost Middle America, and faces demographic death, we need to go back to Bush I. . . .

Income Inequality: The Debate Ignores Race


Austen Layard: Anthropology’s Obsession with African Origins - "The evidence for significant cultural advancements in Europe earlier than anywhere else in the world is largely ignored by scholars and the public alike, because it does not fit the politically-motivated idea that humanity was an African invention and that the human brain was born there, after which it has remained fixed and resistant to all effects of evolution."

Anthropology’s Obsession with African Origins

When did humans first become human?  The answer is far from simple, because the question assumes that sometime in the past, humans achieved modernity and were locked within an evolutionary loophole where natural selection no longer applies.  Despite the absurdity of this scenario, and in stark contrast to empirical data, it is widely believed that humans have not changed physically or mentally for the past 50,000 years or so.
After the discipline of anthropology was hijacked by Cultural Marxism and it became crimethink to observe average group differences, a preoccupation with tracing everything back to Africa developed.  Africa does have an outstanding archaeological record revealing many firsts: the first bipedal hominids, the first stone tools, and the first anatomically modern humans that looked roughly like we do today (a vertical forehead, round skull, flat face, and prominent chin).  But largely due to the anti-racist politicization of anthropology, the currently accepted evolutionary paradigm is that Africa was the source of an intellectual watershed event sometime between 100,000 to 50,000 years ago, and that it was only a matter of time before this new breed of clever Africans spread out and replaced all the dim-witted archaic human populations in the rest of the world, such as Neanderthals.  (As used here, the term ‘racist’ refers to views that race and racial differences are a legitimate variable in research on humans, with none of the usual negative connotations found  in the popular and scientific literature.) The concept of behavioral modernity as it has been applied to the Paleolithic seemingly arose out of the Cultural Marxist obsession with proving that Africans are just as good as, and even better than the evil racist nineteenth-century White scientists who dared to rank societies and point out that advanced civilization never developed in certain areas of the world, such as south of the Sahara. . . .

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown provided some very practical guidance for Californians amid a deepening drought: Take shorter showers, turn off the water while brushing teeth, and "don't flush more than you need to."
"Make no mistake, this drought is a big wakeup call," Brown said Thursday in downtown Los Angeles before meeting with local water district officials. "Hopefully it's going to rain. If it doesn't, we're going to have to act in a very strenuous way in every part of the state to get through."
The governor's pragmatic plea came as wet weather finally moved through northern portions of the state, which has been in an extraordinary dry period during what is normally the time for rain and snow.
But the stingy storm system was squeezing out only dribs and drabs of moisture in most areas.

A Brief History of Reactionary Taxonomy

In April and May of 2013, neoreaction experienced what Nick Land would later dub a “Cambrian Explosion.” Scharlach explains:
It’s a sign of maturity that the neoreactionary movement has begun to go “meta” on itself. Scholars of the Dark Enlightenment are beginning to ask self-reflexive questions about who they are, where divisions lie, and what it all means.
Well, we in the Carlyle Club for Young Reactionaries (Students Against a Democratic Society) aren't qualified to know what any of it means, but we think this is all very exciting and we insist on being a part of it anyway! So we spent all night learning.

Ann Coulter: GOP Crafts Plan to Wreck the Country, Lose Voters - "How are Republicans going to square that circle? It's not their position on amnesty that immigrants don't like; it's Republicans' support for small government, gun rights, patriotism, the Constitution and capitalism."

As House Republicans prepare to sell out the country on immigration this week, Phyllis Schlafly has produced a stunning report on how immigration is changing the country. The report is still embargoed, but someone slipped me a copy, and it's too important to wait.
Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party? . . .

Brenton Sanderson: Is there a 'War on White Australia'? - "The push by activist Jews for ever-tighter restrictions on free speech in Australia has been an important front in their broader war on White Australia. It has been a critical part of the suite of ideologies and policies that Jewish activists have deployed to ensure the dispossession and disempowerment of an increasingly imperiled White Australian majority. Of course this simply mirrors the tactics of organised Jewry throughout the West."

The Jewish War on White Australia Continues
In my extended essay ‘The War on White Australia,’ I explored how Jewish intellectual movements and ethno-political activism were pivotal in ending the White Australia policy — a policy change opposed by the vast majority of the Australian population. Australian Jews take enormous pride in this achievement. For instance, the national editor of the Australian Jewish NewsDan Goldberg proudly acknowledges that: “In addition to their activism on Aboriginal issues, Jews were instrumental in leading the crusade against the White Australia policy, a series of laws from 1901 to 1973 that restricted non-White immigration to Australia.” The Jewish promotion of non-White immigration and multiculturalism in Australia has been (and continues to be) a form of ethnic warfare aimed at destroying Australia’s traditional White racial homogeneity — and with it supposedly any potential for a mass movement of anti-Semitism in Australia.
The history of multiculturalism in Australia (and indeed throughout the West) is in large part an object lesson in how a small but highly organised and motivated group of activists can successfully hijack the demographic destiny of a nation for its own ends. . . .

What is the Dark Enlightenment and the Cathedral? Nicholas James Pell provides one answer

Overreacting to Neoreaction

Mainstream liberal blogs have recently discovered the neoreactionary movement, also known as the Dark Enlightenment, which is a plucky collection of backward-looking upstarts that started to gel sometime in late 2012. The only unifying themes in coverage are an unfounded sense of hysteria and a complete inability to get the point.
To start with, neoreaction isn’t a political movement per se—at least not yet and not for lack of trying. It’s more an intellectual trend that scrutinizes hatefacts away from “The Cathedral,” the neoreactionary neologism for the semi-official universalist secular religion of equality that ironically emanates from Harvard’s elites.
Neoreactionaries trade ideas on WordPress blogs and Twitter. Their disparate voices include British expat continental philosopher Nick Land, monarchist transhumanist Michael Anissimov, Catholic anarchist Bryce Laliberte, post-libertarian escape artist Jim, and the snarky satirists of Radish. On discussion boards, scattered Old Right fanboys and a gaggle of fresh-faced, clean-cut Southern men working on oil rigs, ranches, and forex markets discuss the relative merits of Frederick the Great, Lee Kuan Yew, and Thomas Carlyle. Theden is the popular daily record, a sort of neoreactionary Huffington Post—except way, way smarter, natch.
The Dark Enlightenment is a big tent, but there are some common points of agreement. . . .

Robert Weissberg: Self-Esteem Über Alles - "Billions have been spent trying to narrow this largely genetic [IQ / educational] gap, and, despite some occasional misleading media hype, nothing works."

As the civil-rights movement settles into stagnation and one nostrum after the next fails to move the needle, public rituals celebrating the faith have become de rigueur. Nowhere is this religion-like activity more visible than when people beseech prestige universities to open their doors for more blacks and graduate them by hook or by crook. The college diploma has taken on a magical quality, the ticket to the middle class as if “the middle class” were an exclusive club requiring a BA to get by the doorman. That this give-us-a-diploma mania has been going on for decades with little to show for it makes scant difference—gotta keep the faith.
The latest public ceremony occurred on January 16, 2014. Here President Obama, egged on by First Lady Michelle, held a daylong White House “summit” attended by scores of college presidents, corporate heads, and nonprofit leaders. As the price of admission, all participants were obligated to bring a plan to increase minority college enrollments. 
It was axiomatically assumed that intellectually talented black high-school students abound but that top colleges ignore them. Furthermore, these potential college graduates were allegedly often clueless regarding the admission process. Particularly odious according to the president were standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT that impede access to top schools. (In the civil-rights lingo, when blacks cannot pass a test, it is “a barrier.”) The president called for doubling of the National College Advising Corps where recent college graduates help students in “underserved” high schools complete the college admission process. He also advocated hiring new advisers and subsidizing college prep classes routinely available to rich white and Asian students. . . .

5 key regions that require more attention from the US - (Black controlled South Africa and Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia, will continue to collapse back onto the Stone Age. As for 'fastest growing,' there are a lot natural resources others are willing to pay for, and growth rate is being measured against a near-zero baseline. As in Zimbabwe and SA, low IQ, crime, corruption and violence will continue to work their will, sadly.)

5 key regions that require more attention from the US

While Secretary of State John Kerry’s focus on forging a peace deal that ensures the security of Israel and the dignity of the Palestinians is a worthy goal, it's a long shot. He should pursue vital US interests in Africa, Asia, and the broaderMiddle East region, among others.
The following regions and issues are among those critical to both short- and long-term US interests. They should draw greater US attention and diplomatic efforts.
1. Asia
US interests are challenged by rising tensions in NortheastAsia between US allies Japan and South Korea, territorial disputes in the South China Sea, a rising and increasingly assertive China, and a petulant and dangerous North Korea. Trade promotion authority and aTrans-Pacific Partnership deal remain important initiatives to pursue, with the prospect of solidifying the region.
2. Africa
There is a growing presence of Al Qaeda franchises across Africa and the Sahel. Conflicts in South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and Congo, among other countries, threaten stability and have created humanitarian crises.
At the same time, the continent is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, presenting opportunities for US investment and trade. . . .
