Sanders’ SWPL Surge: Diversity Isn’t Strength For Democrats Either is a forum site: we publish anyone critical of America's immigration disaster, and  that includes Democrats. But I don't waste much time thinking about the Democratic Party because it's obviously useless to immigration patriots, its abandonment of the American working class confirmed by Jim Webb's tragic flinching from the issue in the Democratic candidates debate last October.

Still, the much-touted Sanders surge in New Hampshire, paralleling the Trump triumph, is worth noting because it shows that Diversity Is Not Strength for Democrats either.

Race is destiny in American politics. Sanders' supporters are notoriously white liberal loonies. And, as Clinton Campaign Manager Read more >>

New Jersey Man Slays Child–The Christie/Rubio Debate Takedown

511nk5odwLL._SY344_BO1204203200_-198x300[1]There were a lot of long faces at Fox News Tuesday night, but there's a silver lining for Marco Rubio. Now he can go be a bartender like his dad! (Have you heard him tell the story about his father being a bartender? Rubio was his pop's best customer after the debate.)

He can wear a flowered shirt, tell yarns about his father, and if he's asked to make any complicated concoctions: JEB CAN FIX IT!

Gov. Chris Christie will always be remembered for the noble service he performed for his country Saturday night. He must have known his campaign wasn't lighting the world on fire, but he was damned if he was going to stand by and let that pretty-boy mountebank win.

TSA: Thousands Of Illegal Aviation Workers (73 Of Them “Terrorism-Related”) Make For A “Total...

This happened in Somalia, but it could have been in the US--we have Somalians working in our airports, too.

While a TSA agent pawed my hair bun this weekend, presumably on high alert for improvised explosive bobby pins, I pondered the latest news on the Somalia airplane terror attack.

Intelligence officials released video footage of airport employees in Mogadishu handing a laptop to a jihadist suspect before he boarded Daallo Airlines Airbus Flight D3159 last week. The device allegedly contained a bomb that exploded on the plane, which created a massive hole out of which the bomber was fatally sucked. Two other passengers were injured in the blast before the pilot successfully made an emergency landing.

Several airport workers have now been arrested and the FBI is in Africa assisting the investigation.

The Somalia incident is not the only suspected in-flight inside job Read more >>

Bloomberg vs. Trump? “Run, Mike, Run!”

The morning of the New Hampshire primary, Donald Trump, being interviewed on "Morning Joe," said that he would welcome his "friend" Michael Bloomberg into the presidential race.

Which is probably the understatement of 2016.

The three-term mayor of New York and media mogul whose fortune is estimated at $39 billion, making him one of the richest men on earth, told the Financial Times on Monday he is considering a run.

Bloomberg had earlier confided he was worried about Hillary Clinton's ability to turn back the challenge of Bernie Sanders, regards Trump's rise with trepidation, and is appalled by the pedestrian character of the campaign rhetoric.

Why Ted Cruz Is Not A True Latino

The day after Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucuses, La Opinión, the biggest Spanish-language newspaper in the U.S., published   Ted Cruz, primer latino en ganar en Iowa ¿Por qué no estamos celebrando? (by Pilar Marrero, February 2, 2016) which translates to “Ted Cruz, first Latino to Win in Iowa, Why Aren’t We Celebrating?” Note that “we” does not mean “Americans.”
The name on his birth certificate is Rafael Edward Cruz, born in 1970 of father Rafael Bienvenido Cruz, who was born in Matanzas, Cuba and of Eleanor Elizabeth Wilson, of Wilmington, Delaware. Theoretically then, Ted Cruz, the victor of the Iowa caucuses for the Republican Party, should be considered in the United States as part Latino or simply as one more Latino.

Why then is there not a great headline on all the newspapers proclaiming the triumph of the first Latino candidate in the Iowa caucuses? Where are the declarations of national Latino organizations, declaring the triumph of Cruz for the first time in the history of the country, in the famous caucuses? Or the third place of Marco Rubio?

The answer is complex and depends upon the meaning each person gives to the “Latino” identity…. [ My translation]

So “we,” of course, refers to Latinos. Marrero’s article is a discourse on “Latino” identity—and, for those of us whose


Russell Kirk—The Conservative Giant That Conservatism Inc. Wants To Forget

birzercoverHe was once credited as the leading figure of the “Conservative Intellectual Movement” (to borrow George Nash’s phrase) but today Conservatism Inc. wants to keep Russell Kirk in obscurity. Luckily, Bradley Birzer, the Russell Amos Kirk Professor of History at Hillsdale College, has written what may be the definitive Kirk biography Russell Kirk: American Conservative. It will hopefully have the valuable effect of showing how what masquerades as “American conservatism” has almost nothing to do with the vision or values of the man who once defined it.

Birzer’s impressive accomplishment is especially noteworthy because there’s been no lack of Kirk biographies. Two such works, one by my late colleague H. Wesley McDonald and the other by Gerald Russello, were published by University of Missouri Press with my heartfelt recommendations. But neither book shows the breadth and exhaustiveness of Birzer’s Herculean research.

Clearly the author was aiming at being thorough. He covers just about everything his subject published and left behind in his Read more >>
