A Progressive Reader Wonders If Photo ID Is Part Of A Plot To Establish A Republican One-Party State

Former President Bill Clinton is the latest Establishment type to praise former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for his repackaging amnesty. [Bill Clinton Praises Old Foe Newt Gingrich, Newsmax.com, November 26, 2011] It’s less surprising than it might seem: both, along with former President George W. Bush, are bought-and-paid-for servants of Davos Man.
The truly dominant ideology of our times isn't anti-governmentism, it's globalism. It's so suffocating that at the elite level even an ex-President can only peck at it without daring to call it out by name.
Indeed, the most interesting aspect of Clinton’s recently-published Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy is the subterranean but still noticeable conflict between Clinton's devotion to his globalist paymasters and his still-sharp political instincts that tell him that American patriotism wins elections.
It’s a struggle. But he manages.
Nobody would call Bill Clinton a profound thinker. While shallow, however, his range is certainly broad. For example, he concludes Back To Work with 46 scattershot suggestions for improving the economy, such as:
- “To support the insourcing movement, we should increase the number of empowerment zones and expand the reach of the New Markets Initiative”.
You have to give Clinton this much credit: he does not bore easily. Bush and Clinton were both born in 1946, but Bush has retired, while Clinton is still out there on the conference circuit sitting through Powerpoint presentations. He gives the impression that he's actually interested in, say,
- "21. Speed up the issuance of new energy efficiency rules for the most common household appliances" or
- "33. Increase the role of the Small Business Administration (SBA)."
Clinton endorses the Obama policy on immigration, but only as #41 out of 46:
- “41. Keep pushing for comprehensive immigration reform, and in the meantime grant more H-1B visas to immigrants in STEM fields until we have enough qualified citizens to fill the openings.
(VDARE.com links added to quotes thoughout). To my eye, he sounds less enthusiastic, more pro forma, about claiming that “the immigrants who fill the STEM jobs “ will somehow create jobs for Americans than he does about his priority #12:
- "At least paint the roofs white."
(Needless to say, Clinton makes no mention of
Massachusetts, as we all know, is a haven for empty headed liberals that support illegal immigration and open borders. Most of their boosterism comes from their misguided notion that they are far enough from the border to be immune to the consequences of allowing the invasion to continue.
Now Massachusetts is learning the hard way that uncontrolled immigration is affecting them in a very profound fashion -- like for instance people are dying in the streets!
Peter Brimelow writes: The National Policy Institute is holding a conference on the theme Towards A New Nationalism: Immigration and the Future of Western Nations in Washington D.C. on September 10. A press conference will be held at the National Press Club, Friday, September 9. Everyone involved in these historic events, especially the presiding genius, Alternative Right’s Richard Spencer, deserves the thanks of a grateful nation, and I very much regret that for personal reasons I can’t be there. We post here Richard’s paper, prepared for the conference, on what he calls “The Majority Strategy”, which we at VDARE.com call “The Sailer Strategy” because it was invented by our Steve (America’s Half-Blood Prince) Sailer, even if, in his prima donna-ish way, he has been declining to focus on it recently. Some years ago, I was told (by a former staffer for Senator Jesse Helms!) that suggesting a white-cenric strategy for the GOP i.e. that it should appeal to its own base would lead to instant ostracism inside the Beltway. NPI is breaking that incredible taboo right now.

- The GOP is effectively The White People’s Party. Whites cast some 90 percent of total Republican votes, and the party’s 2010 national victory was primarily the result of outstanding White participation.
- In the current multiracial environment, in which minorities consistently vote Democrat, major Republican victories occur when the party’s percentage of White support greatly outstrips that of the general (multi-racial) population.
- Over the past 40 years, Hispanic voting has been remarkably structural and intractable. The GOP’s “outreach” efforts consistently fail, and there’s little evidence that Hispanics would flock to a “Latino-friendly” GOP.
- The GOP could unite a substantial majority of White voters by focusing its platform on immigration restriction.
- A successful Republican strategy would be to “reach in” to its Majority base rather than “reach out” to Minorities. The GOP should not shirk its real identity; it should embrace it.

Mickey Kaus's post DREAM Act analysis, based partly on Roy Beck's take, which he calls a "cold-eyed and revealing post-game analysis" is that it was the Tea Party primary challenges that sent a message to Republican Senators:
