First, a piece of excellent news: the news gathering site One Old Veteran
has reactivated.One Old Veteran
was one of the very best of the sites which gather news/ammunition for the patriotic side of the immigration war. This is an enormously valuable service. It shut down late last year and reactivated in late March, with a bright new format.
Welcome back, One Old Vet
Second, very bad news: the brilliant anti H-1B blog Carrieâ€™s Nation
, which I discovered only recently
, has abruptly shut down, closed the site and terminated its email.
This is a real loss, and very sad that not even the archive was left up. Carrieâ€™s Nation
specialized in incisive analysis of stories, with a particularly valuable propensity to read the Indian media
on line. CN
was very stimulating
Amongst Carrieâ€™s Nation
mourners is the blog Androcass,
a commenter on the thread of which propounds the theory:
In a nutshell, the entity known as `Carrie`s Nation` was likely one or more professional researchers working for a firm that pulled the plug at the end of April. That explains the blogger, CC`s sudden and mysterious disappearance. Job over, on to the next disparate gig, maybe with tax codes. Detroit housewife? Fine. Sure.
I do not believe this, based on my email exchanges with her. Some apparently find it difficult to accept that an intelligent woman with a computer and the time could produce this quality of work. But at VDARE.com
, we are continually astonished at the standard of the work offered to us by amateurs, often severely underemployed. Becoming a member of the MSM commentariat is a matter of managed discrimination
and exclusion, not ability.
And of course, it is extremely hard, particularly for an individual, to keep up a flow of high quality posts for any length of time. Personal and professional demands intrude. Also fatigue. On the margin, to some degree, small monetary rewards help motivation - which is why we keep bothering our readers with appeals
