Ann Coulter: And Then There Was One—And He Means What He Says About Immigration



511nk5odwLL._SY344_BO1204203200_-198x300[1]A guy just won the Republican nomination for president by spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people told him he couldn't say that.

I always hoped I'd see this once before I died. It's like to going to Mecca, for Americans. Pay attention, because it's the last time we're going to see it in our lifetimes.

For those of you not yet on the Trump Train, I know you don't want to vote for Hillary, but all the pundits have been trying to convince you that Trump's a complete fraud. (That was between their smug assurances that he wouldn't make it out of Iowa.)

It's odd. When Trump launched his campaign by talking about Mexican rapists and the wall, his critics hysterically denounced him, rushing to TV to say he did NOT represent the Republican Party! Only after it became resoundingly clear that large majorities of Americans agreed with Trump did his critics try a new tack: He doesn't believe it!

That's what my friend Andy McCarthy at the now-defunct National Review wrote recently.[ Trump Would Press the Agenda That Drove His Voters from the GOP, April 30, 2016] I had to spend the weekend figuring out how to attack a friend without saying, "This is the most retarded argument I've ever read."

Here goes: This was not Andy's best effort.

Of all the arguments that could be made against Trump, McCarthy settled on: I don't trust him on immigration. Read more >>

Trump Victorious As GOP Transformed Into A National Conservative Party


NEW YORK Magazine thinks that the Republican Party is "broken"--President Trump may mock them at the Inauguration

In the end, it wasn’t even close. Donald Trump won a crushing victory in Indiana with over 50% of the vote, leading Ted Cruz to suspend his campaign for President. To the shock and horror of the Conservatism Inc. Establishment (whom you could actually watch melting down in real time on Twitter), Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee.
How much does Trump owe his Indiana victory to immigration? Exit polls ranked immigration as a top issue, but not the top issue, coming in well behind the Economy/Jobs, Government Spending, and Terrorism [ Exit polls: Immigration not a top issue for Indiana Republicans , by Lisa Mascaro, CNN, May 3, 2016]. But this is misleading. All of the top three issues are directly related to immigration. Moreover, Trump’s views on immigration are part of a larger Nationalist Narrative which is attractive to voters. As one voter put it, Trump is “for us”. [ Immigration, Social Security on the minds of Indiana voters on primary day , Fox News Latino, May 3, 2016]

And Trump’s own supporters certainly thought immigration was important. Exit polls showed slightly less than half of all Republican primary voters said most illegal immigrants should be deported to the country they came from. Of those voters, 64% voted for Trump, with 34% going for Cruz and only 1% for Kasich. [ Indiana Republican Entrance/Exit Poll , CBS News, May 3, 2016]

The scale of Trump’s victory was such that it essentially ended the Republican primary race. And many commentators Read more >>

Tale of Two Tribes: ‘Climate Refugees’ vs. EPA Victims

The left has concocted a lucrative category of politically correct victims: "climate refugees." It's the new Green racket.

U.S. taxpayers will now be forking over untold billions to ease the pain allegedly inflicted on "carbon's casualties" by industrial activity. By contrast, those who have suffered as a direct result of Read more >>

Big Law Buckling To Big Left—So Much For Legal Ethics



If Trump were a murderer or a terrorist, Above The Law wouldn’t attack the lawyer who defended him

The Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Texas, the Obamnesty case argued April 18, is not expected until June at the earliest. But the backstory demonstrates just how far to the Left the top corporate law firms (“Big Law”) have moved—as (perhaps less surprisingly) does the controversy over the Donald Trump campaign’s legal representation in Washington D.C.

As with most high-profile cases, dozens of amicus briefs were filed both for and against the Obama’s Executive Amnesty. An amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief is filed by a third party interested in the outcome of a case. For example, if two small technology companies has an intellectual property dispute before the Supreme Court that could affect the entire industry, larger technology companies or their trade groups may file amicus briefs. In these types of specialized cases, the briefs can have a major impact.

usvstexasIn United States v. Texas, legal scholars, trade associations, politicians, and advocacy organizations filed amicus briefs. For example, Democratic Congressmen and Senators, the AFL-CIO, and the American Immigration Council (a Soros-funded pro-immigration group)filed amicus briefs in defense of Executive Amnesty, while Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the Immigration Reform Law Institute filed briefs against. All in all, there were 19 briefs in favor of Amnesty and 18 against.

Yet it’s not clear that these matter that much to the outcome. Most legal commentators think that in such c Read more >>

Why Russia Resents Us

Friday, a Russian SU-27 did a barrel roll over a U.S. RC-135 over the Baltic, the second time in two weeks.

Also in April, the U.S. destroyer Donald Cook, off Russia's Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad, was twice buzzed by Russian planes.

Derb’s April Diary: TIME’s Altman A Dissident Right Mole? Chinese Underwear; WASP Privilege; Etc.!!



richardspencer

Spencer in Time. I was sitting in a doctor's office late in April browsing the magazines. They had recent issues of Time. Flipping through the April 25th issue, who should I see looking out at me from page 41 but Richard Spencer, whose Beemer once graced my driveway for several days. (Richard was staying in Brooklyn and needed a place to leave the car.)

Richard's picture was illustrating an article by Alex Altman (email him), headline : The Billionaire and the Bigots . The point of the article, Time being a Main Stream Media outlet, was of course to show that Donald Trump is obviously a thought criminal because he has the support of the Dissident Right—the name I prefer for what Altman calls the Alt Right—people like Richard Spencer (and us!)

Our own Alexander Hart posted a good critique of the Time article here at VDARE.com on April 28th. I only want to add one point my colleague left out.

It's a passage in the Time article that struck me with such force, I scribbled it down while waiting for the doctor. Most of it is a quote from a person Altman encountered in his researches into the Dissident Right fever swamp. Here is the passage as I wrote it down.
“Diversity brings differences, and sometimes those differences are so irreconcilable, they cause conflict,” said Nathan Damigo, a 29-year-old student from Oakdale, Calif., who blogs about incidents of alleged anti-white bias. To Damigo, a former Marine who fought on the sectarian battle fields of Iraq, the rise of a candidate like Trump was inevitable. “This is what happens in all multiracial, multi-religious, multiethnic societies,” he said. “Identity politics trumps everything else.” [Links added]

This caught my attention just because it's so darn reasonable. I imagine a lot of Time readers—people by no means sympathetic to the Dissident Right—must have scratched their heads reading that, muttering: "Well, yeah." It's actually hard to argue with it, unless you've spent the last fifty years in a sensory-deprivation tank.

This Time writer, who's supposed to be trying to show his readers how crazy we Dissident Rightists are, is calling down fire on his own position by including that passage. Why did he include it?

There are two possibilities.

(1) Altman is so far away in multiculti cloud-cuckoo land, Nathan Damigo's mild and obvious remarks do sound crazy to him.


(2) Altman is a Dissident Right mole, perhaps on Richard Spencer's payroll,
