At Last, America First!

Whether the establishment likes it or not, and it evidently does not, there is a revolution going on in America.

The old order in this capital city is on the way out, America is crossing a great divide, and there is no going back.

Donald Trump's triumphant march to the nomination in Cleveland, virtually assured by his five-state sweep Tuesday, confirms it, as does his foreign policy address of Wednesday.

28TRUMP-video-jumbo-v7Two minutes into his speech before the Center for the National Interest, Trump declared that the "major and overriding theme" of his administration will be—"America first." Right down the smokestack!

Gutsy and brazen it was to use that phrase, considering the demonization of the great anti-war movement of 1940-41, which was backed by the young patriots John F. Kennedy Read more >>

After Acela Primaries, Trump To Conservatism Inc. (Implicitly): Join The Nationalist Revolution—Or Be Flattened...

Donald Trump didn’t just win every state on Tuesday, he won every county, crushing his opponents in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland [ Trump wins every county in ‘Acela Primaries by Jesse Byrnes, The Hill, April 27, 2016]. This challenged some of the deepest-held beliefs about American politics—specifically that the Northeast, at least its Republicans, are “moderates.” No doubt unconsciously, Trump is creating a new opportunity for the American Right, which either needs to embrace nationalism and identity politics or suffer slow extinction in a Third World America.

The conventional wisdom before the so-called #AcelaPrimary: John Kasich would serve to take away delegates from Donald Trump, helping to keep the Republican frontrunner from getting to the magic number of 1237 before the GOP convention. The assumption: the “moderate” and pro-immigration Kasich was a good fit for the more liberal Northeast, where it was already assumed Ted Cruz couldn’t compete. A few weeks ago, Kasich even suggested he could help force a contested convention by preventing Trump from sweeping the area and perhaps even by defeating Trump in Pennsylvania. [ John Kasich Talks Up Second Place Chances in New York Visit , Wall Street Journal, April 7, 2016] But Kasich was a distant second in every state except Pennsylvania, where he even lost to Cruz.

What did conventional wisdom get wrong? This raises the question: what is a “moderate” Northeast Republican?

The popular conception: a socially liberal,

Ann Coulter: Cruz And Kasich–The Slow-Talker And The Homeless Guy

511nk5odwLL._SY344_BO1204203200_-198x300[1]Apparently, John Kasich and Ted Cruz are at their most appealing when no one is paying attention to them, which, conveniently, is most of the time.

After Cruz won cranky Wisconsin last month—only the fourth actual election he's won—voters decided to give him a second look. But two seconds after people said, "OK, let's give this guy a try," he cratered. You might say a little of Ted Cruz goes a long way. Voters can't stand Cruz any more than his Senate colleagues can.

Listening to Cruz always makes me feel like I have Asperger's. He speaks so slowly, my mind wanders between words. As Trump said, there's a 10-second intermission between sentences. I want to order Cruz's speeches as Amazon Audibles, just so I can speed them up and see what he's saying

The guy did go to Harvard Law School, so I keep waiting for the flashes of brilliance, but they never come. Cruz is completely incapable Read more >>

Said In Spanish: Vicente Fernandez’s Extraordinary Anti-Trump Rant; The Sada Plan For The U.S., Mega MayDay Mexican...

Guess what? Dubya’s notorious Hispandering 2000 nomination convention featured a singer who was not only a Mexican citizen but turns out to be an extreme Trump-phobe. Figures.


VICENTE FERNANDEZ’s Anti-Trump Rant: “I’ll Spit In His Face, I’ll Mention His Mother”

The famous Mexican singer Vicente Fernandez (right) just had his “farewell concert” on April 16th in the massive Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Besides the music and the memories, “Chente” included an anti-Trump rant in the performance:
The singer Vicente Fernandez had some words in the concert… for….Donald Trump….the artist interrupted his series of songs to express his opinion of “a candidate” who aspires to the presidency of the United States. He didn’t make direct reference to Trump’s name, but it wasn’t necessary, the simple insinuation was more than sufficient for the assembled public to begin a prolonged booing.

“The day I find him”, guaranteed Fernandez….” I am going to spit in his face, I’m going to mention his mother.” And he added that he was going to say “everything that they haven’t said [to him]” in his [Trump’s] life.

Fitting, isn’t it?

Will Beyoncé’s Bullying Baseball Bat Brigade Get A “Civility” Lecture From Obama?

In a music video, Beyonce Knowles demonstrates what she'd like to do to her cheating husband, Jay-Z.

Question: Why aren't liberal celebrities ever held accountable for stoking their unhinged fans' violent threats and stupidity—the same way Republican candidates are called on to disavow every last remote and random act of bad behavior of their supporters?

The double standards are as glaring as a glittering diva's Harry Winston diamonds.

I'm looking at you, Beyoncé.

The singer dropped a highly incendiary album over the weekend titled "Lemonade" on her husband Jay-Z's failing music streaming service, Tidal. When last we heard from booty-shaking Beyoncé, she was growling and cursing her way half-naked through her Black Panther anthem, "Formation," at the Super Bowl.

But Queen Bey ain't just settling for twerk-punctuated, fist-clenching, cop-bashing radical chic. The Black Lives Matters message is incidental this time to her real beef: cheating hubby Jay Z and his mistress(es?).

"Middle fingers up, put them hands high/ Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye," she rants before jeering that her adulterous partner "better call Becky with the good hair." Wielding a baseball bat, the designer gown-swathed star sashays down the street in a music video obliterating car windows and fire hydrants. Read more >>

President Trump Will Have Foes In Immigration Bureaucracy—But Also Friends. They Can Help Him Win

After Donald J. Trump’s crushing victory in New York, and what looks like his impending sweep of North Eastern states, his giddy advisors have been estimating that he could win as many as 1400 delegates and secure the GOP nomination on the first ballot [ Internal campaign memo projects Trump will win 1,400 delegates at GOP convention , by Philip Rucker, Washington Post, April 20, 2016]. Perhaps a revolution is at hand. But, as a worried reader noted recently, even if Trump can defeat Hillary Clinton, Trump will have to deal with a civil service composed of bureaucrats actively trying to thwart any immigration patriot agenda. Of course, they’d be receiving aid and comfort from the Main Stream Media—and the courts.

Can Trump defeat the bureaucrats? That depends on which bureaucrats we’re talking about. Since the (unfortunate) creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the immigration law enforcement functions once performed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) have been broken into several different bureaucracies. Immigration law enforcement has been enfeebled—probably by design. Not all are Treason Lobby strongholds.

The components are:

  • U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – deals with adjudicating benefits for aliens such as applications for permanent residency and naturalization

  • The U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) – the “green meanies” who patrol the borders of the United States and the interior arresting illegal aliens

  • Office of Air and Marine (OAM) – conduct


If God Is Dead, Can America Survive?

In a recent column, Dennis Prager made an acute observation.

"The vast majority of leading conservative writers ... have a secular outlook on life. ... They are unaware of the disaster that godlessness in the West has led to."

Yes, Virginia (Dare), Chinese Immigration DOES Pose A Security Risk. (And China Would Know What To Do)

John Derbyshire teaching English (but not spying) in Communist China, Christmas 1982.

[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available free on]

Forty-three years ago I was teaching English at a college in provincial China. This was the early post-Mao period, and foreigners were a rarity outside the big cities. I think I was the only one resident in that town since the Russians had left twenty years previously.

I was on friendly terms with some of the older students. When no-one else was around, they'd pass on things the college's party secretaries had said in Political Study sessions, which were compulsory for all students and faculty.

One day one of these students told me that the chief party secretary, whose name was Dong, had told a political study class that I was a spy. "How do you know Mr. Derbyshire's a spy?" asked one of the bolder spirits among the students. Replied Secretary Dong: "Of course he's a spy! All foreigners are spies! Why would they come to China, if not to spy on us?"

That kind of mentality is still current among China's rulers, as we shall see. Perhaps we could use a little of it ourselves:
Chinese espionage, both online and old-fashioned, represents a serious threat to American security and prosperity, as Washington, DC, has stated many times. Cyber theft and online pilfering of American intellectual property was castigated as "the greatest transfer of wealth in history" by the director of the National Sec
