Charles (THE BELL CURVE) Murray Inches Towards National Conservatism

[ Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available free on]

Here's something I did enjoy watching—as opposed to the Clinton/ Trump debate. It's intelligent, instructive, and thought-provoking, and so the opposite of retail politics. It was balm on my wounded psyche, 84 minutes of sunlit good sense after a raging storm of gibberish—a panel held at the National Press Club (boo!) last week : Immigration and Less-Educated American Workers, organized by the Center for Immigration Studies.

The occasion for the panel: a new CIS report by Jason Richwine. [ Report: Immigrants Replace Low-Skill Natives in the Workforce] Jason, you may recall, was the brilliant young quantitative analyst at the Heritage Foundation whose Harvard Ph.D. thesis had argued that when selecting immigrants for settlement in the U.S.A., IQ should be a factor. In 2013, in the wrangling over the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill, CultMarx Central found out about the thesis. They ordered Heritage to fire Richwine, and Heritage of course obeyed. Honest quantitative analysis on issues relating to intelligence, race, and immigration is not wanted at Conservatism, Inc.

SAID IN SPANISH: Mexican Media Gloats Over Debate, With Help From “David Brooks”; More Musical Mexican...

When I last reported, the Mexican elite was panicking about Trump. After the debate, like the American Left, they’re convincing themselves they don’t have to worry…again. But that still doesn’t stop Mexicans (and the government of Argentina) from trying to meddle in an American election.

Trump-Hillary Debate In The Mexican Media

The Mexican media had plenty to say about the first Trump-Clinton debate and you can imagine how objective they were. Former president Vicente Fox, who has been obsessed with the Trump campaign and hysterically denounces it (perhaps to stay in the public eye), shrieked Debate de Hillary y Donald, como ver ‘La Bella y la Bestia’: Fox (“Hillary and Donald Debate like watching ‘Beauty and the Beast’”) Excelsior, September 9, 2016].

118A follow-up article after Trump’s further commentary on colorful Venezuelan former beauty queen  Alicia Machado was entitled Trump vuelve a despotricar contra Alicia Machado: 'Era lo peor' [“Trump rants again against Alicia Machado: ‘She was the worst’) although if anybody was ranting about it, that was Hillary.

Then there was Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, who starred in the Desierto movie which portrays an apparently Trump-inspired American randomly shooting Mexican illegal aliens in the desert. The actor called Trump an “imbecile, the enemy of all goodness and of all humanity.” He tweeted to Trump No tienes idea de lo que es un país de tercer mundo, Trump. No tienes no puta idea [“You have no ide Read more >>

Trump Right on Trade Predators

Is America still a serious nation?

Consider. While U.S. elites were denouncing Donald Trump as unfit to serve for having compared Miss Universe 1996 to "Miss Piggy" of "The Muppets," the World Trade Organization was validating the principal plank of his platform.

America's allies are cheating and

Ann Coulter: How To Avoid Immigration, Terrorism And Health Care For 90 Minutes


At least we know Trump wasn’t lying when he said he didn't practice for the debate.

Based on the behavior of trained, professional journalists, I gather I'm not supposed to say what I really thought of the debate, but to cheer like a pom-pom girl for my candidate.

But the truth is, I—along with my Trump-supporting friends—thought it was a draw: Trump won the first half, and Hillary won the second half. Since most people stopped paying attention after the first 30 minutes, that's a win for Trump.

Hillary supporters, or "the media," had reason to be happy: She looked healthy! She probably could have kept reciting her snarky little talking points for another hour.

In fact, it was the best I've ever seen Hillary. She avoided that honking thing she does, smiled a lot—a little too much, actually (maybe ease up on the pep pills next time)—and, as the entire media has gleefully reported, she managed to "bait" Trump. Read more >>

MSM Doesn’t Want To Discuss Third World Transformation Of West. Trump Should. The Alt Right Will

Yes, Donald Trump missed many opportunities in Monday’s debate, falling into the traps set by the ludicrously-biased moderator, the  obnoxious light-skinned black  Lester Holt. There was almost nodiscussion of immigration, the consequences of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy or anything else that actually matters. Trump was aggressively pressed by Holt, but there was no parallel discussion of the scandals regarding the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s emails, or anything else.

Alicia at 118 LBS

Instead, it was a tiresome series of “gotcha” questions on birtherism and Trump’s criticizing women. Now, in the aftermath, we have another faux controversy about Trump pointing out that some beauty pageant winner violated her contract by putting on a bunch of weight. (Pictured right, Alicia Machado at 118 lbs--you don’t want to see the 158-178 lb pictures.)[ Trump Doubles Down On Nauseating Miss Universe Attack: ‘She Gained a Massive Amount of Weight ,’ by Alana Horowitz Satlin, Huffington Post, September 27, 2016]


Of course, Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program is dedicated to fighting obesity, though she started that before “fat shaming” evidently became a Hate Crime. And the idea of Hillary Clinton, wife of accused rapist Bill Clinton, leading a movement in defense of women is absurd on its face .[ Clinton Childhood Friend ‘Astonished’ Women Would Vote For Hillary , WND, June 29, 2016]

And of course Trump himself bears ultimate responsibility for, once again, rising to Read more >>

Not A Feminist Heroine–Hillary Complains About Being “Interrupted” By Trump In Debate

Whatever happened to "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar"? Whither "Girl Power"? When did Rosie the Riveter's "We Can Do It!" give way to Hillary the Haranguer's "We Can't Handle It"?

It's 2016, and the Democrats' feminist heroine running for commander in chief is whinnying about being—wait for it—interrupted.

Quick! Prepare a

Is Charlotte Our Future?

Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP [Tweet him] proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like."

Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."

Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, "show us a way forward to peace and justice," accomplished. Read more >>
