The Ben Carson Money Machine: Making Millions From White GuiltBy Hubert Collins on 10.08.2015, 6:13 pm
Peter Brimelow writes: The curse of campaign consultants has long been one of our interests at VDARE.com. So, for that matter, has the peculiar cultural and political allure of the “Numinous Negro”, to use my old National Review colleague Rick Brookhiser ’s term, which would now probably get him Derbyshired . Dr. Ben Carson (who to his credit has been excellent on Muslims) exemplifies both. We are pleased to cross-post here a powerful exposé from American Renaissance of the role donation-focused consultants are playing in Carson’s campaign. My guess: a similar gang of grabbers are behind Carly Fiorina, and are no doubt equally surprised by her relative success.
Alas, this may not be Ben Carson’s only problem if the National Enquirer is here again breaking news the Main Stream Media flinches from: Bungling surgeon Ben Carson left sponge in patient’s brain! By Sharon Churcher, October 7, 2015.
The rise of Donald Trump has upset most everyone who does not support him. From the smear piece in the New Yorker, to the hostile commentary from Conservatism Inc., to the condescending remarks of libertarians, those not for Mr. Trump are very much against him. After a bit of scrambling, the chattering cuckservatives of the 24-hour commentary cycle seem to have settled on a strategy to dismantle him: promote Dr. Ben Carson as the “legitimate outsider” of 2016 and pray that the average-Joe Republicans now fueling Mr. Trump’s rise will jump ship.
“Washington Watcher” at VDARE has a full treatment of the phenomenon. He notes the incredible, seemingly out-of-thin-air surge from late August of “conservative” pundits telling us what an amazing candidate and person Dr. Carson is. FOX-regular Charles Krauthammer seems to have gotten the ball rolling in August by declaring Dr. Carson to be the “anti-Trump” and also a “wonderful guy that is hard not to actually like.” Rich Lowry laid it on none too subtly with “Ben Carson, the Superior Outsider.” A few days later, neoconservative Bill Kristol claimed that the GOP was wrapping up its “summer fling” with Mr. Trump and would soon engage in a “fall romance” with Dr. Carson. Michelle Malkin wrote a surreal piece entirely about what a lovely person Dr. Carson’s wife, Candy, seems to be.
“Washington Watcher” is entirely correct in his analysis of this trend, and he also points out Dr. Carson’s far-from-conservative opinions–especially on immigration–but there is more to the story. What is only whispered within the Beltway is that the Carson candidacy is not so much a serious effort to make him president as a fundraising scheme–and a very effective one. A polished team is making millions flogging a hopeless black candidate to guilt-ridden Republicans who are wasting every dollar they contribute. It’s a tactic they have perfected with several black long shots.
Draft Ben Carson
Dr. Carson became a household name in February 2013 after he criticized Obamacare of at the National Prayer Breakfast. Just six months later, John Philip Sousa IV (great-grandson of the famous one) founded the National Draft Ben Carson for President Campaign Committee (NDBCPCC). Dr. Carson was still far from declaring his candidacy, and the purpose of the PAC was to demonstrate the fundraising capacity a run for president could have. Also, if he did declare, there would be infrastructure and funds lying in wait.
By law, PACs and candidates are not allowed to communicate. Politicos find ways around this, but there is only speculation as to how involved Dr. Carson was with the decision to start the PAC, or how involved he was with its tactics.
When Mr. Sousa was interviewed in December 2014 Read more >>
Ann Coulter On Mass Shootings: The Problem Isn’t Guns Or White MenBy Ann Coulter on 10.07.2015, 4:48 pm
Now, quick: Name the mass shooters at the Chattanooga military recruitment center; the Washington Navy Yard; the high school in Washington state; Fort Hood (the second time) and the Christian college in California. All those shootings also occurred during the last three years.
The answers are: Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, Kuwaiti; Aaron Alexis, black, possibly Barbadian-American; Jaylen Ray Fryberg, Indian; Ivan Antonio Lopez, Hispanic; and One L. Goh, Korean immigrant. (While I'm here: Why are we bringing in immigrants who are mentally unstable?)
There's a rigid formula in media accounts of mass shootings: If possible, blame it on angry white men; when that won't work, blame it on guns.
The perpetrator of the latest massacre, Chris Harper-Mercer, was a half-black immigrant, so the media are refusing to get too specific about him. They don't want to reward the fiend with publicity!
But as people hear details the media are not anxious to provide, Read more >>

Pro-Mexican Soccer Ad Agrees With Trump—America “Doesn’t Have Victories Anymore”
In case you didn’t know, Mexico and the United States will play each other October 10 at the Rose Bowl. Since it’s in California, we can expect the Americans will be dealing with a hostile “home” crowd who may boo the national anthem again.

The Great Replacement: The 1965 Immigration Act And The Think TanksBy Jared Taylor on 10.06.2015, 12:21 pm
Washington-area think tanks are marking the 50th anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 that ended national quotas and opened the United States to immigrants from all countries. On October 1, the Center for Immigration Studies hosted a panel at the National Press Club, and the next day the libertarian Cato Institute held a series of lectures and panels. No one defended the 1924 act that the ’65 act replaced. National quotas designed to maintain a northern European majority were reviled as “racist,” “eugenicist,” “bigoted,” etc., and there was some astonishment when AR staff expressed dissent from the floor.
The Cato panels, with a strong representation of Hispanics, were very much a celebration of post-1965 immigration, with repeated calls for “comprehensive immigration reform.” Congressman Ruben Gallego [Email him] of Arizona evoked his immigrant parents and grandparents, and waxed almost spiritual: “When I meet other immigrants and hear their stories of entrepreneurial spirit, I see how they have the capacity to truly change this country.” He denounced Arizona’s SB 1070, passed in 2010, as “a gross violation of the civil rights of individual human beings,” but did not explain why it is wrong to make a federal misdemeanor crime also a state misdemeanor. He also complained that any proposal that would give illegals permanent status but bar them from citizenship “feels extremely un-American.”
For the congressman, immigration is a “civil right,” implying that anyone who sneaks in from Mexico has a right to citizenship. Without immigration, he concluded, America would have a declining population and a shrinking economy. He was the first of many to criticize Donald Trump, who he says stirs up “xenophobia.”
Mark Hugo Lopez [Email him] Director of Hispanic Research at the Pew Research Center, presented findings from a recent Pew report about the demographic consequences the 1965 act. He argued that even without post-1965 immigration, there would have been a decline in the percentage of whites because of differential fertility, but instead of dropping from 85 percent to 62 percent by 2015, it would have dropped to 75 percent. By 2065, he predicted that whites will be only 46 percent of the population, with Hispanics at 24 percent, Asians 14 percent, and blacks 13 percent. These projections assume that immigration will be increasingly Asian rather than Hispanic, and that there will be a steady stream of white immigrants.
Erika Lee [Email her] who teaches the history of immigration at the University of Minnesota, began by telling the audience that she is the grandchild of Chinese immigrants. Her talk was mostly about the “racial injustice” of laws that excluded Asians. She denouncedRead more >>
Is Tom Brady The NFL’s Great White Defendant?By Matthew Richer on 10.05.2015, 8:32 pm
Now, Brady is being targeted as the NFL’s Great White Defendant in an attempt to distract from how the rest of the league has become, in Rush Limbaugh’s words, “the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons” [ The Classless NFL Culture , Rush Limbaugh Show, January 19, 2007].
During the offseason, the NFL suspended Tom Brady for four games and fined the New England Patriots two future draft picks because Brady supposedly directed team personnel to deliberately deflate several footballs just prior to the 2015 AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The deflated footballs didn’t impact the outcome of the game. The referees reinflated the balls at halftime and Brady proceeded to tear up the Colts’ defense for 28 unanswered points in a driving rainstorm.
Several former NFL quarterbacks have argued that air pressure in footballs is a matter of personal preference, not an unfair advantage [ Former NFL quarterbacks talk Deflategate , by Jim Corbett, USA Today, January 21, 2015]. And yet the NFL bizarrely compared throwing a slightly underinflated football to the use of anabolic steroids [ Judge Berman slams NFL’s comparison between using steroids and deflating footballs , by Henry McKenna, Boston.com, September 3, 2015]
Tom Brady, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has repeatedly put it, damaged “the integrity of the game” [ NFL releases statement on Patriots’ violations , NFL, May 11, 2015].
Nevertheless, as usual with trumped-up charges against whites, we now enter Narrative Collapse. It was initially alleged eleven of the Patriots’ footballs were deliberately underinflated, but it now appears it was only a single football [ Report: Only one of Patriots’ 12 balls were under-inflated by two pounds , Sports Illustrated, February 1, 2015]. Moreover, the referee who weighed the balls did not actually record any of the measurements. He only testified to the air pressure levels from memory.
According to statements by Colts’ general manger, Ryan Grigson, the NFL front office decided to perform a sting operation to catch Brady Read more >>
