PA-18 Victory Masks Real Dem Problems, Especially On Immigration—Is GOP Too Stupid To Exploit?

The victory of “Blue Dog” Conor Lamb over Republican Rick Saccone in the Pennsylvania District 18 special election seems to suggest the Democrats have a strategy to win back a congressional majority. By soft-pedaling cultural issues and emphasizing economic populism (except, of course, for immigration), they could possibly reclaim the Rust Belt whites that Donald Trump so brilliantly won over. Unfortunately for the Democrats, however, they have become a Coalition of the Fringes united around hatred of whites and of traditional American culture, and their base will not tolerate candidates like Lamb. Symptomatically, even as Democrats trumpeting Lamb’s victory, the party machine is undermining one of the last remaining “Blue Dog” Democrats: Dan Lipinski (IL-3) in his March 20 primary.

The pro-life Lipinski is being challenged by leftist Marie Newman, who has the backing of Obama’s political operatives as well as the endorsement of Bernie Sanders [ Conservative Democrat Rep. Lipinski struggles to fend off progressive primary challenge , by Aamer Madhani, USA Today, March 17, 2018].  Lipinski is supported by traditional Democratic powers like the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees and the AFL-CIO But Newman is reportedly within only two points of winning [ Poll: Lipinski holds slim lead over progressive primary challenger , by Lisa Hagen, The Hill, March 6, 2018].


Memo From Middle America: All Mexican Pols Are Meddlers—But One Good Tweet Could Blow Them Sky-High.

continues over alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, while America’s Political Class seems to not care about the Mexican meddling which has gone on for years. It’s almost as if they don’t doesn’t see Mexico as a real country, just as a source of cheap labor—and votes. And recent developments show that meddling would continue under a “conservative” Mexican President.

Mexico has a presidential election on July 1, although according to Mexican campaign law the campaign doesn’t officially start until March 30th There are three major candidates, each representing a coalition of parties:

  1. The PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party), of the current president Enrique Pena Nieto, is running Jose Antonio Meade.

  2. The PAN (National Action Party) and allies are running Ricardo Anaya (pictured right)about as white a guy as you could find.The nominally conservative PAN is in a coalition with the left-wing PRD (Party of the Democratic Revolution).

  3. MORENA, the party started by Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (known from his initials as AMLO), who was the runner-up under the PRD banner in the two previous, hotly-contested, elections. Now AMLO has left the PRD and his new party is already one of the biggest. AMLO leads in the polls and just might pull it off this time.

U.S. Conservatism Inc. commentators have an exaggerated view of the importance of Mexican elections. (Remember the Vicente Fox fan club?).Trump has already been blamed for AMLO’s possible victory. But whatever differences the Mexican candidates have among themselves, when it comes to U.S. immigration, they are all for Open Borders. I don’t think it matters a hill of beans who wins in Mexico— If we have good, effective and patriotic leadership ere

Thus AMLO has already pledged to get the United Nations to stop us building a wall:
If he [Trump] insists on building the wall, we’re going to turn to the United Nations to defend the rights of Mexicans. I’m conscious of my historic responsibility.

John Derbyshire: The Telford Child Sex Scandal And The End Of England

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on

I've got to assume that very few Americans ever heard of Telford, a district in the English West Midlands. Steve Sailer admits to never having heard of it; and if Steve hasn't heard of it, nobody has.

This is excusable. There was no such place as Telford until 1968. That was when bureaucratic managerialism in Britain was in the ascendant. Ancient towns and villages were being grouped together in strange new entities under stone-faced administrators filled with a conviction of their own managerial competence. Britain's old counties were reorganized to suit the inclinations and convenience of these mandarins, and people were shoveled around like so many truckloads of concrete.

Shortly afterwards Britain entered the European Union, and those British mandarins, to their delight, became globalist apparatchiks, with way bigger expense accounts. They must have had many a laugh with each other, over the champagne and truffles, at how easy it had been.

It was the end of old England. Mass Third World immigration was a key component of the new order. British people who dared to raise their voices against what was happening—people like Enoch Powell—were insulted, abused, and hounded out of public life.

Telford was, in other words, created out of thin air just as Britain's modern Cultural Revolution was gathering steam: the revolution that turned an ancient, proud, dynamic, and distinctive nation into the third-rate multicultural slum we see today—Cuck Island.

Let's be grateful for small mercies, though. At least the mandarins gave their new creation a name, when they probably would have preferred just to give it a number: "District 479," or perhaps "Airstrip One." Read more >>

A WRINKLE IN TIME Bombs While BLACK PANTHER Succeeds Because Blackface Doesn’t Work—Blacks Want the Real Thing...

It’s a tale of two movies, both touted as historic for having black directors. But while Black Panther is a hit of historic proportions, A Wrinkle in Time is struggling. The explanation is simple. Black Panther is a black movie. But A Wrinkle in Time is simply cultural appropriation, a clumsy remake of a white film retouched in blackface to insult white people. Blacks prefer the real thing.

A Wrinkle in Time is a beloved 1962 children’s book set in an all-white environment, now systematically reimagined to fit the Current Year. Though its production budget was only $100 million, A Wrinkle in Time had an extraordinary marketing/advertising budget of $150 million, equal to Black Panther. As part of this marketing effort, black director Ada DuVernay portrayed her casting of character Meg Murry (white in the novel) as a black woman as a political victory. As she put it in an interview, she was tapping into “black girl magic.”
I mean, that’s such a radical idea as a woman of color, as anyone who’s outside the industry contract of who’s usually put forth as the hero in cinema. To deconstruct that, to unpack that, is really what attracted me to it.

[ Directors Ava DuVernay and Ryan Coogler Want to Transform Worlds, by Kyle Buchanan, Vulture, December 29, 2017]

The book’s white author, Madeleine L’Engle, once said, “Of course I’m Meg,” in regard to her heroine’s identity. [ Madeleine L’Engle, Author of the Classic ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ Is Dead at 88, by Douglas Martin, New York Times, September 8, 2007]. Yet today, the character’s whiteness is nothing less than a moral failing, a kind of aggression against young black girls. The New York Times even ran an Op-Ed unpacking these racial ramifications:
But for African-American girls like me, identification with Meg was not as easy…

Rereading it as a 42-year-old African-American woman, I started scouring “A Wrinkle in Time” for that original sentence or scene of identification in which my 7-year-old eyes saw myself in that all-white setting.

Patrick J. Buchanan: Is the GOP Staring at Another 1930?

After the victory of Donald Trump in 2016, the GOP held the Senate and House, two-thirds of the governorships, and 1,000 more state legislators than they had on the day Barack Obama took office.

"The Republican Party has not been this dominant in 90 years," went the exultant claim.
