Culture of Corruption: The Dems' Dangerous DHS Pick, Alejandro Mayorkas

Culture of Corruption: The Dems' Dangerous DHS Pick, Alexander MayorkasThe "S" in President Obama's DHS doesn't stand for "security." It stands for "sleaze." In the wake of Dirty Harry Reid's sabotage of the filibuster, Democrats have rammed through the Senate nomination of a shady Chicago crony associated with dangerous Clinton corruption and at least two visas-for-sale schemes.

 The White House wants Alejandro Mayorkas to helm the No. 2 position at the Department of Homeland Security. It speaks volumes about this ethics-challenged administration that the most qualified person it could find for this important post is a government DHS hack currently under investigation by other DHS hacks. More on that in a moment.

Obama Vigilantes At MEDIA MATTERS Muscle Critics Of Treason Bar USCIS Takeover

Immigration law enforcement is in shambles, but now the Obama Regime is using it for outright subversion. Reversing decades of policy, the Obama Administration is staffing the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) with lawyers from the Treason Lobby who specialize in helping illegals break the laws USCIS is supposed to enforce. And what’s worse the Obama Regime’s media vigilantes say the real problem is the people pointing it out—like former Justice Department lawyeWell, we COULD have displayed a picture of  J. Christian Adamsr J. Christian Adams (who resigned in protest over the New Black Panther cover-up) and Fox’s Elizabeth Hasselbeck.(Pictured right.)

Immigration law enforcement was already in shambles because the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) was broken up in 2003. The agency once held all authority in immigration law enforcement, but the responsibility is now split between USCIS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

The unified INS developed an effective agency culture. Most positions attended the Immigration Officer Academy, which provided uniform training and standards for the entire department. More importantly, INS consciously developed its cadres by only hiring employees at the trainee level, including Deputy District Counsels, the attorneys who prosecute

The Fulford File | James Taranto, The IRS, And The Minority Occupation Government

In The Press and the IRS | Journalistic partisanship fed the scandal, September 19, 2013, the WSJ's James Taranto provides pointers to the  Main Strem Media "dogwhistles" that may have led the IRS to target the Tea Party. A House investigative report [PDF] has this paragraph, which Taranto has a "annotated with links," describing the MSM "drumbeat" against the Tea Party groups.

Washington Post columnists accused Tea Party groups of "smolder[ing] with anger" [Colbert King] and practicing a brand of patriotism reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan [Courtland Milloy]. Another Post columnist opined in late March 2010 that Tea Party rhetoric "is calibrated not to inform but to incite" [Eugene Robinson]. In April 2010, Reuters tied the Tea Party movement to "America's season of rage and fear."

I thought it would be useful to annotate that paragraph with pictures—aside from the Reuters guy, a European socialist left over from the Cold War, they're all black:

Eugene Robinson

Colbert King

Courtland Milloy

Taranto's point is that there doesn't have to be an actual conspiracy based in the White House—it was mid-level employees of the IRS reading this stuff who attacked the Tea Party.

Of course, they were attacking on behalf of this guy:

Barack Obama Campaigning

And here's his Attorney-General, Eric Holder, shaking his finger at The Daily Caller's Neil Munro:


While the IRS was investigating the implicitly white Tea Party, Attorney General Eric "My People" Holder and IRS officials coached the explicitly black Conference of National Black Churches on how to be politically active without losing their ministerial tax exemption.

The Fulford File | Harlem Nazis Of The 40's—Black Admiration For Enemy Dictators Didn't Start With Kim Jong-Un

Only One Of These Men Can Dunk A Basketball.

On Derb Radio in March, John Derbyshire noted that Dennis Rodman (left) travelled to North Korea for an interview with dictator and basketball fan  Kim Jong-Un (right).

On his return, Mr. Rodman had things to tell us. What things? Listen for yourself.

[Clip: "His grandfather and his father were great leaders. He's such a proud man. He's proud; his country like him; not like him, love him … Ilove him. The guy's awesome.]

You might be wondering: What is it with American blacks and commie dictators? Before Dennis Rodman swooned over Kim Jong-un there was Jesse Jackson dropping trou for Fidel Castro, quote: "Castro is the most honest and courageous politician I've ever met," end quote. That was in 1984. Thirty years before that there was Paul Robeson kissing up to Stalin and praising the Soviet suppression of Hungary's 1956 uprising.

The operative principle here is: My enemy's enemy is my friend. A lot of blacks think of America as their enemy. Since the U.S.S.R., Castro's Cuba, and North Korea are or were all enemies of the U.S.A.,

Conservatism Inc.’s Mandela Problem—The Grassroots Still Think It Was Right First Time. And It Was.

Conservatives have a Mandela problem” runs the headline of a December 6 Salon post by Alex Halperin. Actually, according to Halperin, [email him] conservatives—by which he means what calls Conservatism Inc.— have not one but two Mandela problems, rooted in its current fawning praise of the late Nelson Mandela. (To give credit where it’s due, some  well-known conservatives such as Joseph Farah, David Swindle, Robert Stacy McCain, Diana West, Gateway Pundit  and Tim Graham of the Media Research Center have been critical of Mandela.)

Conservatism Inc.’s first problem: the grassroots of the movement appear stoutly unreconstructed. The comment sections at most of the Conservatism Inc. websites has been overwhelmingly anti-Mandela.

The Left seems particularly fascinated by Ted Cruz’s Facebook page. Cruz gave a typical gushing statement, calling Mandela “inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe.” But many of his supporters expressed skepticism. And these were not crazed “racist” ramblings, but the same criticisms that many Conservatism Inc. operatives themselves made in the 1980s.  Of the thousands of comments left on Cruz’s page, the worst the Daily Beast’s Jamelle Bouie could point-and-splutter at were:

  • “Let’s not forget that Mandela called Castro’s Communist revolution ‘a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people,’”
  • “Mandela was a communist trained by the KGB who sings racial hate songs…and now, the South Africa is a worst country for both whites and blacks,”
  • “Ted, long before you were born, his reputation was the complete opposite. He was, in fact, a terrorist and a criminal, he persecuted and killed Zulus. All the apartheid BS you hear in today’s media is all lies.”

Ted Cruz Commenters Hate Mandela, By Jamelle Bouie, December 6th 20131:

And Bouie wasn’t the only one to point-‘n’-splutter about Cruz’s evil supporters: ABC News, MSNBC, Huffington Post and dozens of other mainstream/left-wing outlets run stories about how Cruz’s Facebook fans don’t like his pandering.  An Austin Chronicle columnist proclaimed the comments were just proof Teddy Kennedy was correct to say that the GOP is the “party of Apartheid” not the “Party of Lincoln”

National Data | November Jobs: Immigrants Gain Jobs 7-Times Faster Than Americans Over Last 12 Months

The U.S. economy generated 203,000 jobs in November while the unemployment rate fell to 7.0%, its lowest rate in five years. In a familiar paradox, this apparent good news may be bad news for investors—because it increases the likelihood that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates sooner rather than later.

In fact, the November numbers are not all that great. The job gain was slightly below October’s 204,000, and not much better than the 198,000 per month average registered in the first nine months of 2013. And note that the unemployment rate decline was driven mainly by the return of hundreds of thousands of federal employees following October’s government shutdown.

The labor force participation rate (LFP) went up last month. And that is good news, a signal that people who had been too discouraged to even look for jobs are back in the hunt.

However, as seen below, LFPs for native-born American workers are considerably below those of immigrants, and have declined significantly more over the past year. So worker confidence may indeed be up—but it is skewed toward those born elsewhere.

With immigrants less likely to work for the Federal government than natives, the end of the shutdown could explain why native-born workers gained jobs at a faster pace than immigrants last month:

In November:

  • Total employment rose by 818,000, or by 0.57%
  • Native-born employment rose by 700,000, or by 0.58%
  • Foreign-born employment rose by 118,000, or by 0.50%

Over the past two months, job growth has traced a neat “V” shape, as federal workers left in October and returned in November. This is clearly seen in right tail of the New V-Dare American Worker Displacement Index (VDAWDI) graphic:

John Derbyshire Says China Really Feels It’s A Victim Nation—Handle With Care!

Are the ChiComs feeling their oats?

Exhibit A: British Prime Minister David Cameron spent the first three days of this week in China. The Communists greeted him with sneering arrogance.  The Global Times, a major Party propaganda organ, honked that:

The Cameron administration should acknowledge that the U.K. is not a big power in the eyes of the Chinese. It is just an old European country apt for travel and study. This has gradually become the habitual thought of the Chinese people.

[China won’t fall for Cameron’s ‘sincerity’, Global Times, December 3, 2013]

Another Communist Party organ, the China Centre for International Economic Exchanges, invited to submit questions to Cameron, asked: “When will Britain return the illegally plundered artefacts?” This referred to objects looted by British troops in the 1860 sacking of the Summer Palace and the 1900 Boxer Rebellion, most of which ended up in the British Museum.

There are a number of responses Cameron might have made. For example:

  • It is not possible, at this distance in time, after so many private sales, re-sales, and bequests, to determine which artefacts were actually looted.

    The British Museum has, though, for some years been co-operating with Chinese scholars in cataloguing its Chinese collection in hopes of identifying items improperly acquired.

    Would you like us to continue this co-operation?

  • I’m interested in getting representative opinions from the Chinese people. In what way are you, a Communist Party organization, representative? 

    I may represent “an old European country apt for travel and study,” but I do actually represent them. They elected me to a seat in Parliament, and my party to enough seats to form a government. Who elected your Party to anything?

  • The joint British-French expedition that burned the Summer Palace did so, as Lord Elgin said at the time, to punish the court while sparing the people.

    A Chinese general, in the Chinese tradition, would have burned Peking and put its inhabitants to the sword.

  • The 1860 expedition followed a gross outrage by the Chinese authorities when, in violation of all civilized norms of international relations, they tortured and murdered emissaries sent to negotiate following a British military reverse.

    (During which, Jonathan Spence tells us: “The American naval commodore Josiah Tattnall, despite his country’s declared neutrality, came to the aid of wounded British Admiral Hope with the ringing cry ‘Blood is thicker than water.’” And during which also, the immortal Private Moyse met his fate.)

  • The China of that period was roiled by two great rebellions threatening the central government: the Taiping (1850-64) and the Nian (1853-68).

    British military leadership and materiel were decisive in helping your government suppress those rebellions and restore peace to the nation.

    You’re welcome!

Ann Coulter On Knockout Game Denial: “Don’t Worry, Black America. White Liberals Have Your Back”

Never Trust a Liberal Over Three-Especially a RepublicanOn a break from pretending to believe they live in a country bristling with violent white racists, the Non-Fox Media have been trying to debunk stories about the “Knockout Game,” in which young black males approach random strangers and try to knock them out with one punch.

The left’s leading line of defense against the Knockout Game is to argue that young black males have always been violent, so, hey, this is nothing new.

You’re welcome, black America!

In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: “The ‘Knockout Game’ is a myth.”

Reminiscing about the flash mobs that shook many parts of the country a few years ago, Roller wrote: “I remember the summer of 2011, a story about a crowd of (black) teenagers at the Wisconsin State Fair randomly attacking fairgoers went viral as a sign of a burgeoning race war.”

So you see, stupid right-wingers, young black males have always been violent, so what’s the big deal about the Knockout Game? Your honor, my client’s not a killer; he’s a serial killer.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes reached for a different example of monstrous black-on-white violence in order to dispute that the Knockout Game is anything new.

Looking like a translator for the deaf with all the air quotes he had to make for “supposed” “trend” and “Knockout Game,” Hayes compared it to what he called the fake trend of “wilding” after a mob of black youths violently attacked and raped a white woman jogging in New York’s Central Park in 1989. According to Hayes, “there never was such a thing” as wilding.

Whether the boys who were convicted of the crime did it or, as liberals now claim, a man already sentenced to life in prison did it, the Central Park jogger was brutally raped and nearly murdered

John Derbyshire Says It’s Obvious What The Knockout Game Is About—But Why The White Wimp-Out?

As the author of the notorious essay The Talk—which was, lest we forget, a truthful satire of various lying claims by blacks that they have to warn their children about white cops— I’ve naturally been thinking about what to write when the MSM inevitably calls for my views, now that I have been vindicated by, most recently, the Knockout Game. [Brooklyn cops probe another possible 'knockout' after woman, 72, is punched, New York Daily News, November 25, 2013 ]

But I keep getting defeated by the obviousness of it all. They might just as well be calling with some such request as: “Can you give us 800 words by press time on whether the Sun will come up tomorrow morning / who’s buried in Grant’s tomb / where flies go in the winter?”

Of course young blacks who encounter a lone nonblack want to commit violence against him/her. Of course! As the English expression goes: You could knock me down with a feather.

In the first place, scrappy young men are anyway inclined to that sort of thing. In 1960s pre-Beatles Liverpool where I was a schoolteacher, the fad was for “nutting.” There is a certain way of throwing your upper body forward and down so that your forehead impacts the bridge of the counterparty’s nose, causing sudden intense pain, a gush of blood from the nostrils, and momentary loss of consciousness.

(Do not try this at home. There’s a trick to it that needs practice.) There was nothing racial in it, although Liverpool, an old seaport, was considerably diverse: Most nuttings were white-on-white.

In the second place, in Western multiracial societies, whites are the wimps. Every other race asserts itself, lobbies, agitates, makes demands, and is given quotas, preferences, and privileges. Only whites cringe, defer, and grovel. It is natural to feel contempt for people who are so ashamed of their ancestors and of their own existence.

And in the third place, blacks in the generality hate nonblacks. Why would they not? Everything in the dominant culture encourages them to.

There is, for example, the Dogma of Zero Group Differences, to which all respectable people are expected to adhere. Assuming there are no essential statistical differences between human groups with different deep ancestry—a thing everybody does assume—what accounts for the observed differences between groups? For the huge black-nonblack differences in criminal offending as reported by victims, whether or not police and courts are involved? Or the sensational race gaps in household wealth?

If you cleave to the DZGD—as all the authority figures say you must—the only explanation can be white malice keeping blacks down.

You’d be mad, too.

And then there is the endless stream of propaganda featuring whites being beastly to blacks, from mid-19th-century Abolitionist porn, via Roots (1977), to 12 Years a Slave (2013).

And then again there is the encouragement young blacks get from older black authority figures. Listen to Michael Eric Dyson explainerating why blacks can’t be racist: Michael Eric Dyson Shares Why "Black People Can't Be Racist" Backstage At Don't Sleep!—YouTube. Dyson is Professor of Sociology at a prestigious university (Georgetown!). Why would a semiliterate black teenager not assume Dyson is speaking some kind of sense from a base of deep academic knowledge, rather than—as is actually the case—minstrel-show gibberish?

Why wouldn’t dimwitted young blacks hate us? What’s newsworthy here?

So I can never feel that much explanation is required as to why young blacks beat up on whites. But what needs explaining is why whites put up with it, even excuse it. [I Was a Victim of the Fake "Knockout Game" Trend, By Matthew Yglesias, Slate, November 25, 2013.] What needs explaining—what always needs explaining—is white ethnomasochism.

It really is a very peculiar thing. American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor, who has a first-class mind and has thought long and deeply about this, declares himself “stumped”:

I'm stumped. Even the Yanomamo and the tribes of Irian Jaya think they are hot stuff, and want their people and traditions to endure for ever. Only whites—and only in the last 60 or 70 years—have been seized by some form of mass insanity that requires them to believe that their mere existence is an offense to others, and that the desire to live in a white society and enjoy European culture is “hate.”

We are not short of offered explanations. Most popular:

"Southern Avenger" Tries To Come In From The Heat. It Won't Work.

[See also: Then They Came For Jack Hunter. They Can Have Him].

It’s fair to say that Beltway Right columnist Jack Hunter, once known as the Southern Avenger, no longer views General Robert E. Lee as an inspiration. After all, General Lee once advised his son Custis:

You must study to be frank with the world: frankness is the child of honesty and courage. Say just what you mean to do on every occasion, and take it for granted that you mean to do right.

No one who admired the great icon of the Lost Cause could possibly pen the craven and humiliating apology Hunter recently offered on Politico.

Jack Hunter was a staffer for Senator Rand Paul and a leading light of the Ron Paul-led “liberty movement.” Prior to his association with the Pauls, Hunter hosted a Charleston, SC talk show called The Southern Avenger and wrote for Dissident Right publications like [SouthernAvenger website 2005 | 2007 | 2013] During this time, he made mildly politically incorrect statements about race, homosexuality, and immigration. However, for the past few years, he has deliberately moderated or even outright reversed his positions to create the most media-friendly image possible for Rand Paul.

But this past summer, the neoconservative Washington Free Beacon

 Peter Brimelow celebrating his 66th birthday with his daughter Felicity and Ulrich von Dog, October 13, 2013

By Peter Brimelow, Editor, VDARE.COM

OK, I’m completely out of touch with popular culture. I had to be told by my young family that the day after Thanksgiving is now called "Black Friday." 

Apparently, it's the heaviest shopping day of the year.

So, to celebrate America's spending mood, I'm starting our annual year-end VDARE.COM fundraising drive now!

Fundraisers are always stressful for us. has no financial reserves and no margin for disappointment.

But our year-end fundraiser has turned out to be when we get the bulk of our (tax-deductible!) contributions. It’s the time we feel most hopeful about our great gamble:

that the internet has made possible a new type of low-cost independent media, supported directly by readers, free of pressure from advertisers and subscription managers, able to deliver the Politically Incorrect truth about immigration’s impact on America’s future which simply will not and cannot be published by the Main Stream Media.

Let’s start with some good news: Christmas is coming!

Don't forget that, if you buy your Christmas gifts (not just books!) by entering Amazon through a VDARE.COM link e.g. here, we get a commission at no cost to you!

Please do take the trouble to do this—these commissions have become a significant source of income for us.

Now some sort-of good news:

The 2013 Amnesty/ Immigration Surge legislation is stalled.

Note: at, we always refer to S.744, the Schumer-Rubio legislation that passed the U.S. Senate earlier this year, as the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge—to make the point that it involves both amnesty for illegal aliens and an enormous increase in legal immigration, already running at record highs.

Somehow, that plotted increase in legal immigration gets lost amid all the sob stories.

This stall may be hard to detect, given the MSM’s constant drumbeating about how the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge (which, in a telling admission of weakness, is always called “Immigration Reform”) is going to pass Real Soon Now!!!!

But the undeniable fact: the immigration enthusiasts’ arrogantly-proclaimed Amnesty/ Immigration Surge timetable has slipped—from “before July 4th” to “before the August recess” to “October”…and now to “2014,” and even “during the lame-duck session” (i.e., again tellingly, after the mid-term elections.)

There hasn’t been a climactic battle yet, as there was in 2007 when American patriots’ protesting phone calls melted down the Senate switchboard and scared Senators into killing George W. Bush’s Amnesty/ Immigration Surge.

But instead, something else has happened that is in some ways even more impressive: the lavishly-funded Amnesty/ Immigration Surge drive has been stopped dead by stubborn, inchoate, intense, leaderless resistance from the American people.

It’s like the situation on World War I’s Western Front exactly this time 99 years ago—after fierce battles, both sides are deadlocked and deeply entrenched.

There’s sniping and flares, but little apparent movement…although, of course, there’s still the constant fear of a sudden surprise offensive.


I say this Amnesty/ Immigration Surge stall is “sort-of good news” because, while it’s not victory—which would be a 1920s-style time-out or moratorium from immigration to increase wages, lower unemployment and permit assimilation—it’s very obviously not at all what the Treason Lobby expected…and paid for.

And this stall has happened for a single simple reason.

Thus I was delighted to see the fashionable smart-alec Leftist webzine Daily Beast recently (October 3) reporting with horror a lunch at Manhattan Le Cirque restaurant where a collection of fat-cat donor “financial industry types and lawyers” whining to Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, that the GOP House caucus was too much “in the thrall of its most extremist wing.”

Walden (who actually has a pretty good record on immigration) responded fiercely:

“If we don’t do this [take a strong line], these guys [his fellow-caucus members] are going to get primaried and they are going to lose their primary.”

(My emphasis.) The single simple reason the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge has been stopped in its tracks: an informed, aroused grass roots.

Not inside-the-Beltway lobbying and maneuvering. Not pitifully attempting to curry favor with MSM moguls, liberals, “Progressives,” and all the established powers in the ruling elite that has set America on this path to disaster.

This grass roots resistance yet again proves’s long-standing contention: patriotic immigration reform can only come from the heartland.

It will not come from inside the Beltway—it will have to be imposed on the Beltway.

That is why I believe that what VDARE.COM does, in providing telling facts and incisive arguments to the grass roots, free of charge, is more important than any amount of Beltway wonkery.

But we can only continue providing those facts and arguments with your help.

Let me say also, as a battle-scarred veteran of the immigration debate, that I do see real signs of movement.

For example:

  • This year, there has finally been some MSM discussion of the extent to which the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge is suicide for the Republican Party—and whether the GOP’s problem is really its failure to appeal to Hispanics, or rather its failure to motivate its (many times larger) traditional white a.k.a. American base.

At, we have been writing about this issue for nearly fourteen years. It got us banned from the Republican booster site way back in 2001.

This is not, of course, because we care about any particular political party. It is because we saw that the immigration-triumphalist narrative promoted by the MSM is simply false.

However, this is no mere theoretical point. It’s dynamite.

  • If professional politicians can be induced to see that the MSM narrative is false—and the stalled Amnesty/ Immigration Surge suggests this is happening—they can next be induced to see the need, and the utility to their careers, of an immigration moratorium.

Who knows? Perhaps the next step will be MSM discussion of the extent to which immigrant workers are displacing Americans workers.

Uniquely, has been providing monthly tracking of displacement, based on our analysis of federal government employment data, since 2004. It’s amazing that this displacement issue hasn’t surfaced already, given that it’s all too obvious that neither party has any idea what to do about the chronic high unemployment that persists in the aftermath of the 2008 Crash.

Maybe it will surface now.  Stranger things have happened! (See above).

And all by themselves, these two arguments will revolutionize the immigration debate.

Because arguments do ultimately shape policy. But money matters too.

Indeed, perhaps the single biggest change in public discourse since first went live on Christmas Eve 1999 is an increased general awareness of donors and of how they, and the professional campaign consultants who live off them, distort political debate. New York Times columnist Ross Douthat calls this phenomenon “donorism.”

The classic case: Mitt Romney’s hapless 2012 Presidential campaign, which was quite clearly run to maximize donations at the expense of issues that motivate the GOP base.

Immigration was merely one example. After the primaries, Romney stopped even hinting at resisting illegal immigration. Instead, he explicitly promised both to increase legal immigration and to get “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” a.k.a. an Amnesty/ Immigration Surge passed in his “first year.” (Yes, yes, I know this is contrary to MSM myth, but documented the disgraceful details here).

Romney’s reward: humiliating defeat, due to record low white turnout. But his consultants got to spend some $1 billion on themselves!

And big donors really really want an Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill. The Sunlight Foundation has reported that they have spent $1.5 billion lobbying for it since 2007. (And that doesn’t include this year’s splurge).

At, again I think uniquely, we have used standard economic techniques to explain why this is happening.

Although immigration doesn’t benefit Americans in aggregate, it does benefit some Americans—at the expense of others. It does this by increasing competition for jobs and thereby depressing wages. The accepted estimate: immigration redistributes some 2 to 3 percent of GDP from labor to the owners of capital.

In 2013, that’s about $300 billion-$450 billion, a very large number. And remember, the 2013 Amnesty/Immigration Surge bill could triple legal immigration. So we could be looking at a total diversion of income amounting to more than a trillion dollars.

This is a looting of the U.S. economy that can only be compared to the Russian oligarchs’ theft of assets as the Soviet Union collapsed. It explains the extraordinary parade of plutocrats—for example, Sheldon Adelson, Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Bloomberg, Paul Singer, the Koch brothers—currently pushing the 2013 Amnesty/ Immigration Surge bill.

When Americans hear that immigration will “spur economic growth,” they should read: Permit more plutocrat plundering of America’s middle and working class.

American politics seem have entered a new Gilded Age, with politicians (and journalists) all too eager to do the bidding of high-tech Robber Barons.

But there is this silver lining: money without ideas doesn’t work. (Ask Mitt Romney).

The Treason Lobby needs to outspend immigration patriots by a thousand to one, lie that what it’s doing is not Amnesty but “immigration reform” (an immigration moratorium would be “immigration reform” too) and try to smuggle through the logically-unconnected legal immigration surge because what it is doing is all intensely unpopular with Americans.

And more immigration just makes the problems worse—politicians trying to “get it behind” them are just going to be bitten in the buttock.

Look at it this way: every (tax-deductible) dollar you give forces the Treason Lobby to spend at least a thousand, much of it on political campaigns and hence not deductible!

That’s some investment! And it’s in our children’s future.

And this brings me to some bad news that I also have to report: Repression is intensifying.

The internet has given dissident publications like life. But it has also made the need for more imperative. It has enabled Main Stream Media ideological gatekeepers to co-ordinate their political line and to orchestrate hysterias, like their Trayvon Martin scam, and witch hunts, like the ones that claimed the MSM careers of contributors Pat Buchanan and John Derbyshire—and even civilian bystanders, like celebrity chef Paula Deen and Heritage Foundation researcher Jason Richwine, (lynched for the content of his Harvard Ph.D. !)

Just a couple of days ago, chronicled an assault on criticism of illegal immigration at, and to a shameful degree by, the University of Texas.

This repression is intensifying partly because short-sighted monied interests want the Amnesty/ Immigration Surge—and partly because far-sighted Leftists behind the Obama Regime and what I have called the nation of “Anti-America” are absolutely conscious that there is still time for the historic nation of America to unite, to throw off what from a demographic point of view is undeniably a Minority Occupation Government, and to stop its Electing A New People through immigration policy.

And they are absolutely determined to prevent the historic nation of America from uniting—by “any means necessary.”

We post an enormous amount of material every day at VDARE.COM. There are just so many targets!

And what we post is prepared to the highest professional standards—I've not been working in the Mainstream Media for nearly 40 years for nothing. And we use hyperlinks, not the least of the advantages of this wonderful new medium, better than anyone else on the least, I think so. They help us document our case.

Readers who are new to the cause of patriotic immigration reform find our hyperlinks particularly compelling. But the whole process is very labor-intensive.

Money is our secret weapon at VDARE.COM.
Our fixed costs are very low, we operate entirely virtually. We don't have to pay printing and postage (thank goodness!).

What this means: essentially everything you give goes to pay writers and editors.

Our writers and editors are not paid as much as I would like. But they do get something. This ability to pay our writers is what has distinguished VDARE.COM from a host of excellent but evanescent blogs which have come and gone.

Writers will often write for love—because they passionately believe in our cause. But in the long run, they need to be able to justify the time spent, to their families and to themselves.

At VDARE.COM, we are in this for the long haul. We are building an institution. We need money to do that. We can only do it with your help.

To me as a professional journalist, the quantity and quality of non-professional writing on the immigration issue that comes in over the e-transom has been a revelation. Many of these writers have full-time careers in other fields, some are students; I encourage these to write anonymously because of the very real reign of terror imposed by the curse of Political Correctness. Others are struggling, idealistic free-lancers; I shudder for them. All are patriots deprived of outlets because of the orthodoxy of the Mainstream Media.

Patriotic immigration reform can only be addressed from completely outside the political establishment. The Main Stream Media, liberal and "conservative", would not carry facts and analysis about America's immigration disaster. But I have been sorry to see that even fairly brave conventional funders can be intimidated by the terrible curse of Political Correctness.

Fortunately, the internet makes possible this wholly new type of journalism: one financed directly by its readers because they believe in the cause.

This strikes me as an entirely legitimate form of economic activity, like a church. And, like a church, it's tax-deductible!

Please help us now.

I, and all of us at VDARE.COM, believe future generations of Americans, will be profoundly grateful.

Merry Christmas!
