The NeoCons’ Confederate Problem—And America’sBy Paul Gottfried on 06.28.2015, 11:55 pm
Party operatives are stupid enough to believe that black votes are there for the taking if they run down the Confederacy ferociously enough; and that white Southerners will remain Republican no matter what. Plus of course the GOP’s whorish Big Business backers have capitulated, as when they withdrew support from the Boy Scouts of America for not accepting openly homosexual scoutmasters. But it is not so much blacks who seem offended by the Battle Flag (in South Carolina as much as 40% of the black inhabitants are content to leave it at the Capitol) as it is the national Main Stream Media—and above all the neoconservatives.
Neoconservatives have long stood out from other Republicans and members of Conservatism Inc. by virtue of the intensity of their loathing Read more >>
Said In Spanish: Dominican Deportations, More Trump Tremors, Etc.By Allan Wall on 06.27.2015, 10:16 pm
It’s a very important question, one almost totally ignored by the Mainstream Media, the professional commentariat and the two major political parties.
But this knowledge is potentially transformative. At least it was for me. In 1991, after I had moved to Mexico, I began reading the Mexican media, in Spanish of course. I learned what they really thought about U.S. immigration, about Mexican emigration to the U.S., and about Mexican-Americans. And it drastically transformed the way I viewed the National Question.
My articles on VDARE.COM have included plenty from Spanish-language sources. Now, I’m beginning a systematic periodic feature, a roundup of topics covered by the Spanish-language media (including the U.S. Spanish-language media). Translations are mine. Yet another service from VDARE.COM—donate here!
- Dominican Deportations
VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow particularly asked me to look for Mexican reaction to the impending deportation of 200-300,000 (black, French-speaking) Haitians from the (mulatto, Spanish-speaking) Dominican Republic [ The Dominican Republic's mass Haitian deportation reflects its racist history, by Jason Nichols, The Guardian, June 23 2015]. Mexicans have long been blustering that Americans “can’t deport us all,” so the implications are obvious.

America’s Jacobin Moment—Will It Inspire A Counter-Revolution?By James Kirkpatrick on 06.27.2015, 12:01 am

Regardless of its merits as policy, the Court’s decision on marriage was undeniably a judicial coup d’état by America’s home-grown Jacobins. It capped what may have been the worst week in history for movement conservatives. Just to review what else happened the last few days:
- The Republican Congress joined with President Obama to pass the catastrophic Trans-Pacific Partnership, a policy firmly opposed by the conservative base. Largely because of its infringements on immigration policy and American sovereignty, conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly called it “the worst bill Congress has ever passed” [ Schlafly slams ‘worst bill Congress has ever passed,’ WND, June 23, 2015]
- The Confederate flag was removed from monuments, statehouses, and even national parks. The only politicians who appeared to defend the flag were Democrats. As the modern Republican Party is based in the South and depends heavily on increasing White turnout, the TPP and the Confederate flag are a one-two punch to any Republican hopes of turning out its White base in the 2016 elections.
- The Supreme Court, led by Bush appointee John Roberts, saved the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) for nakedly political reasons [ Supreme Court Saves Obamacare , by Ariane de Vogue and Jeremy Diamond, CNN, June 25, 2015]
Voters who delivered a crushing victory for the GOP in the midterm elections must be wondering what the point was.
Yet this week did not just Read more >>
