“Wheel And Fight”—Pat Buchanan’s Nixon Book Provides Road Map For TrumpBy Peter Brimelow on May 27, 2017, 11:16 pm
If History is “a set of lies agreed upon,” as Napoleon is supposed to have said, then American politics has increasingly become a series of induced hysterias by elite agreement. Thus the Ruling Class’s Trayvon Martin, Ferguson and Baltimore frenzies came and went, shamelessly unaffected by repeated Narrative Collapses—inexplicable, unless you were aware of Left’s amoral imperative to incite its black clients against the white American majority. And the current “Impeach Trump!” frenzy really has nothing to do with Russia or Comey—it’s simply the latest expression of the Left’s long-brewing refusal to accept defeat in the 2016 election, which it counted on to complete its coup against the Historic American Nation [ Trump Impeachment Talk Started Before He Was Even Nominated , by Peter Hassan, Daily Caller, May 17, 2017].
It’s as simple as this: If the Evil Party gets control of the House of Representatives, Trump was always going to be impeached, regardless of what he did. (Conviction, which requires 67 Senate votes, might be more difficult—although Democrats probably assume any Republican President could be guilted into capitulation, like Richard Nixon, unlike Bill Clinton). The good news: this demystifies impeachment, which VDARE.com has long argued is not a juridical proceeding but an assertion of political control like a no-confidence motion in a Parliamentary system—and should be more broadly applied, by a patriot Congress, not just to Presidents but to bureaucrats and kritarchs.
And the great news: we now have a road map to how a patriot President can survive a Ruling Class induced hysteria—Patrick J. Buchanan’s just-published Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Broke A President And Divided America Forever.
Buchanan’s book is important and powerful—but somber: he’s not joking at all with the last four words of his title, although he doesn’t dwell on it. It’s a theme that has increasingly appeared in his recent columns, here and here and here.
In effect, Buchanan endorses VDARE.com’s contention that an irrepressible conflict is now developing between America and anti-America, which we argue is ultimately traceable to ethnic division and was fatally exacerbated by the 1965 Immigration Act, which became effective in 1968, the year of Nixon’s election.

John Derbyshire: As A Brit, I Say Don’t Let The Manchester Massacre Happen HereBy John Derbyshire on May 26, 2017, 10:58 pm
[ Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively on VDARE.com.]
Headliner of the week was the Muslim terrorist attack on a pop concert in Manchester, England. The bomber blew himself up and took 22 others with him. That's the count as I go to tape here; over a hundred were injured, some critically, so the death count may be higher as you hear this.
The bomber was a 22-year-old Muslim, name of Salman Abedi, born in Britain to parents from Libya. Those parents had been settled in England as refugees from Colonel Gaddafy's government; so that's where the bomber was born, in England, 1994.
In 2011, you'll recall, Barack Obama, prompted by the Three Horsegirls of the Apocalypse—Samantha Power of Obama's National Security Council, his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—who in turn were prompted by Britain and France, with an assist from George Soros—overthrew Colonel Gaddafy.
Salman Abedi's parents thereupon, in 2011, returned to Libya. Salman Abedi, then 17, stayed in the U.K.
So I'll just pause to note here that this is yet another case of absimilation. Here yet again is the relevant passage from We Are Doomed, the one book you need to explain the modern world. Chapter 10, edited quote:
The English word "assimilation" derives from the Latin prefix ad-, which indicates a moving towards something, and the same language's verb simulare, "to cause a person or thing to resemble another." You can make a precisely opposite word using the prefix ab-, which marks a moving away from something. Many immigrants of course assimilate to American society … Many others, however, especially in the second and following generations, absimilate.
That's what Salman Abedi did: He absimilated, ending up hating the country that had taken in his parents. Read more >>
Fourth Circuit Bobos Put Judiciary On Collision Course With AmericaBy Adam Candeub on May 25, 2017, 9:05 pm

I nearly drove off the road today when I heard that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit issued a 10 [Democrat[-3 [Republican] decision basically blocking President Trump’s revised travel ban—and I’m a law professor: I’m not easily shocked by federal judges [ Federal appeals court maintains freeze of Trump’s travel ban. Attorney general vows Supreme Court appeal, by Ann E, Marimow and Robert Barnes, Washington Post, May 25, 2017]. This is an extraordinary assertion of judicial supremacy over the Executive and Legislative branches’ right to make immigration policy. Not surprisingly, the reaction is intense—and ominous e.g. Why Trump has a responsibility to ignore the Fourth Circuit, by Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review, May 25, 2017.
But in a larger sense, this development is not surprising. It’s the culmination a phenomenon Charles Murray documented in his book Coming Apart—our professional, business, and educational elites have isolated themselves from the rest of American and, in particular, the working class for whom they have growing contempt.
New York Times columnist David Brooks, [Email him]in his satirical Bobos in Paradise, to which Murray alludes repeatedly, described how our new elites’ identities rest upon meritocratic achievement and cultural self-expression rather than attachment to traditional American culture. The code that binds our new elites together requires its member to be “non-judgmental” and “culturally open, “shunning the narrow and parochial impression that professions of patriotism can give.
