VDARE.com’s year-end fundraiser is absolutely vital to us. We raise the largest chunk of our donations between Thanksgiving and New Year. And this fall, despite record election-driven traffic, things have been getting unpleasantly tight.

In the next few days, I’ll be writing more about America’s immigration disaster and how you can help VDARE.com help set it right.

But first, I want to say that, in Winston Churchill’s famous words on V-E Day, “we may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing .” The struggle for patriotic immigration reform, in which VDARE.com has been engaged since Christmas Eve 1999, has been cruel and costly. And no-one deserves a period of rejoicing more than VDARE.com’s faithful readers—and, above all, our heroic donors.

We are profoundly grateful to you all.

A brief period of rejoicing is also appropriate because it gives us a moment to reflect upon what has actually been achieved.

As far as I can see, Trump’s triumph is completely without precedent in American history.

And it vindicated decisively a number of VDARE.com themes:

  • VDARE.com has said consistently that out of control immigration was a major political issue because the American people simply do not want to be displaced in the country that they built.
We were right.
  • VDARE.com has said consistently that inreach to the Historic American Nation, rather than outreach to immigrants and minorities, was still a viable path to national election victory.
We were right.
  • VDARE.com has consistently said that, as a matter of fact, an immigration patriot message would actually have more appeal to immigrants and minorities than conventional consultant-driven pandering.
We were right.
  • VDARE.com has consistently said that it would not take much—as I said last year, “it would only take one speech”—to surface the immigration issue. We viewed with derision the hundreds of millions of dollars spent by conventional consultant driven campaigns, all extracting commissions in the process.
We were right.
  • VDARE.com (well, actually, me—with the benefit of a life time’s experience, not all of it welcome) repeatedly said that MIRACLES HAPPEN QUITE FREQUENTLY IN POLITICS.
We were right.

Now we look forward with confidence to another miracle—the end of America’s immigration disaster and the comeback of the Historic American Nation.

To adapt Churchill again, this time after the Battle of El Alamein, Trump’s triumph is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

To get to the end, we need your help. Please give generously.

p.s. The picture above is of my daughters with Lydia: Felicity (blonde), Karia (brunette) and Victoria Beauregard (red head. Diversity is strength!). It was taken on my 69th birthday, October 13 2016.

VDARE.com is in this for the long haul. We would have fought on regardless of the result of this or any other election.

But I now have incandescent hope that there will still be an America when these little girls reach young womanhood.

Help us make sure that this hope comes true.
