Since Walker moved away from Amnesty, the MSM says he flip-flopped. If he'd moved the other way, they'd say he had evolved.
March is coming in like a lion for immigration patriots, as the drama over Obama’s Executive Amnesty mounts. Three major signs of spring:
- Candidates versus Conservatism Inc. at CPAC
Conservatism Inc. did its best to distract CPAC attendees from thinking too much about immigration this weekend, banishing Ann Coulter despite her popularity because of her powerful attacks on Amnesty, and stacking the deck against immigration patriots in the scheduled speeches. The case against immigration is not one that the Beltway Right wants to hear, which is why VDARE.com supporters did their best to take their message to attendees through grassroots activism.
Needless to say, the Beltway Right’s usual cowardice did nothing to stop the Left’s usual attacks against it, as various Cultural Marxist enforcers demanded the power to determine who conservatives are and are not allowed to associate with at what is supposed to be the most important gathering of the American Right in the country. Yet even as the Left mustered its usual showy “outrage,” the undeniable fact is that CPAC’s management has all but banished populist Right organizations as sponsoring organizations, either deliberately or through the gouging prices the conference now demands.
Still, the politicians at CPAC were forced to show their concern about the immigration issue. The frankly anti-American (in the sense that he openly despises existing American citizens) Jeb Bush’s only supporters were those that he bused in. Senator Ted Cruz, who finished third in the Straw Poll, explicitly focused on (illegal) immigration during his speech and called out K street lobbyists.
Even Marco Rubio had to back down from openly supporting Amnesty. And the winner of the Straw Poll, Rand Paul, despite his flip-flops, was an opponent of the Amnesty/Immigration Surge when he actually had to vote. And Nigel Farage of UKIP condemned multiculturalism from the main stage, triggering Leftists.
What this tells us is that immigration patriotism is the opposite of an Astroturf issue. Immigration patriotism resonates among voters and at the grassroots, even though it is almost totally devoid of institutional support.
The real winner of CPAC: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, whose strong second- place finish in the yearly straw poll can almost be called a victory when you can take for granted that Rand Paul (or any Paul) is going to win, given the strength—in some ways unfortunate—of libertarianism among the younger generation.
Walker has clearly established himself as the anti-Jeb among Beltway Republicans and grassroots conservatives who can’t quite bring themselves to support the libertarian-leaning Paul. But Walker has a mixed record on immigration and has supported an Amnesty/Immigration Surge in the past.
Which brings us to...
- Scott Walker Shifts Our Way
Scott Walker moved on immigration—in a patriotic direction. And he isn’t even doing the usual politician trick of claiming his views have somehow remained consistent. As he told Fox News: “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it.” [Walker: ‘My View Has Changed’ on immigration reform, March 1, 2015].
Walker is now saying that a path to citizenship for illegals qualifies as Amnesty. He says he changed his
Jeb Handlers will spin #CPAC2015 appearance as "brave," and "held firm," "didn't back down," to reassure #DonorClass that he's the one.

Just as Laura Ingraham predicted, the Main Stream Media’s spin on Jeb Bush’s appearance at CPAC is that he survived (although he apparently bused in supporters and still did very badly in Saturday’s presidential straw poll). But an arrogant Establishment Republican named Bush with a spendthrift Mexican immigrant wife with a taste for expensive things—now there’s a presidential couple that will inspire the historic American nation!
Some Republicans are excited about Jeb Bush because he has a Hispanic wife, Columba. Thus The Hill refers to Jeb's Hispanic wife as his "secret weapon" for winning the presidency. [How Jeb Bush's wife could help win him the White House, by Jonathan Easley, Jan. 28, 2015]. Needless to say, this crude tokenism will fail in the general election because of the overriding Latin American-style economic and political commitments of Hispanics. But there seems to be no limit to the GOP’s appetite for minority-pandering.
The unlikely evolution of John Ellis “Jeb” Bush into a sort of honorary Hispanic loops back to 1970 and a tree-lined square in Leon, a colonial-era city in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato. Bush, then a teenager and student at the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., was in Mexico for a three-month exchange program. One Sunday, he spotted a girl in the back of a car promenading around the square. She struck him as “beautiful,” and so did her name: Columba Garnica de Gallo.[Hispanic consciousness lends weight to Jeb Bush as GOP eyes 2016 presidential race, by Manuel Roig-Franzia and Peter Wallsten, April 24, 2013].
Liberals, campaign consultants, donors, and naïve Republicans will find this love story compelling. But when Jeb hits the trail with his wife, traditional Americans will cringe when Bush wraps Amnesty in the mantle of his marriage.
The Hill points out how Jeb and Columba evidently talk about Hispanic family values at home: “The Mexican-born immigrant has
We delayed our monthly commentary on immigrant displacement of American workers, based on our analysis of the federal government’s updated unemployment data, to include our new charts—above, the relentless influx of immigrant workers into the U.S. job market since Obama took office in 2009. Note that you can now mouse-over get the underlying data! (But this won’t show up if you’re reading VDARE.com on a mobile device).
January marked the second successive month in which native-born American workers gained jobs while immigrants lost them. But this, of course, is an anomaly. Over the whole 12 months since last January foreign-born employment has risen by
Imagine a corrupt, venal, treacherous power-mad white president—doesn’t look so bad at this point, does it?
Season 3 of House of Cards is released this Friday, February 27 for all of Washington’s binge viewing pleasure. On the surface, the show seems like a typical Narrative production, with deliberately graphic displays of perverted sexuality and an utterly sociopathic white Southern protagonist in Frank Underwood. But the overwhelmingly white key characters and the almost loving portrayal of Underwood’s rise from House Majority Whip to President of the United States contains a more subversive message. The political order in the United States is still controlled by whites—and the SWPL fans of the show secretly know it and love it.
The main character, Frank Underwood, is a “moderate” white Southern Democrat, a practically nonexistent political type in today’s world. However, unlike the right wing Francis Urquhart from the original British House of Cards (both characters boast the acronym FU), Underwood’s ambiguous political position allows lead actor Kevin Spacey to portray convincingly a character utterly devoid of authentic political belief and with no end in mind except his own power. Over the course of the series, Underwood lies, manipulates, and even murders his way to the top. And his wife Claire is arguably

Ann Coulter: Why Is Congress Worrying About ISIS When Illegals Are Killing People Every Day Right Here In America?
For at least a year after 9/11, I used to turn on the TV, and if I saw a "Survivor" contestant, I'd think, "Good. No news." These days, I turn on the TV, and if I see former U.N. ambassador John Bolton, I think, "Good. No news."
By now, the public knows more about ISIS than they know about the Kardashians. But it has no idea that the very same Senate Democrats who claimed to oppose Obama's amnesty when they were campaigning are currently filibustering a bill to defund it, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is ready to cave.
ISIS has killed four Americans—in Syria. We're not exactly talking about another 9/11. Here's a tip: If you don't want to be killed by ISIS, don't go to Syria.
Meanwhile, illegal aliens have killed
Your tax dollars are once again hard at work—defaming conservatives, deflecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the public access to information they funded.
CNN splashed the big scoop
Back in 2014, the federal government contemptuously reminded American school districts that they weren’t allowed to exclude the Central Americans hordes it had invited into the country [Feds: Schools can’t shut out undocumented immigrants, by Caitlin Emma, Politico, May 8, 2014] This “guidance” from the feds was based on the court ruling Plyler vs. Doe. According to a “Dear Colleague” letter issued by the Administration in 2011:
As Plyler makes clear, the undocumented or non-citizen status of a student (or his or her parent or guardian) is irrelevant to that student's entitlement to an elementary and secondary public education.
[Joint "Dear Colleague" Letter, U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, May 6, 2011]
The problem is that this isn’t true. As Attorney William Pendell Perry noted,
“Plyler: (1) does not apply to secondary and post-secondary education; (2) did not
Dr. Ben Carson is willing to say about Obama that “I think we can start talking about treason.” White Republicans should be saying that, but they’re afraid of being called racist.

As I write this evening (Monday February 23) it’s too still early to tell if, by proposing to split a vote on funding Obamnesty from the overall Department of Homeland Security funding bill, voting on the former first, Mitch McConnell is trying to wriggle out of using the power of the purse to stop Obamnesty, as the GOP leadership has repeatedly promised, or whether, as the National Journal puts it, Mitch McConnell Looks to Trap Democrats With a Standalone Immigration Bill (by Lauren Fox and Sarah Mimms, February 23, 2015).
Or both. Or neither. Whatever—the bottom line:
- The irresistible force meeting the immoveable object of Democratic intransigence is…continuing grassroots resistance from ordinary Americans.
The ludicrous vacillations of the GOP’s venal Conservatism Inc. leadership, clearly unable to decide whether to fight or flee Obamnesty, speaks to the sheer fear inspired by this invisible and uncelebrated force, which stood between America and annihilation via Amnesty/ Immigration Surge throughout the 113th Congress in opposition to the entire political elite, and still so stands today.
Calling Congress works!
- Obama will not let the GOP “get this behind” it. Obamnesty is just the beginning.
There is quite obviously something peculiar about Obama. For example, no normal politician would court suspicion by not attending church, least of
My advice: Deplore the treaty; do not attack the president.
The next day, Howard Phillips declared that Ronald Reagan had become a "useful idiot for Soviet propaganda."
Howie captured the headlines, as did Rudy Giuliani after that dinner at 21 Club for Gov. Scott Walker, where the mayor spontaneously rose to declaim, "I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. ... He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of his country."
Rudy could not understand why at the National Prayer Breakfast the president launched an attack on the Crusades and the Inquisition, done "in the name of Christ." The mayor could not understand why Obama had trouble identifying and naming ISIS
