In Pictures: A Quiet (!) Trump Triumph—Immigrant Workforce Population FALLING

Although I really do believe a picture is worth a thousand words, I rushed Ed Rubenstein‘s report on the September jobs data into pixel with our usual charts on immigrant displacement of American workers and immigrant share of U.S. employment, but just a table of data on the really big news: the fact that the immigrant workforce population had fallen—for the second straight month.

We’ve corrected that now, with help from our heroic anonymous data graphing friend. See above and, for an interactive version, below.

FOREIGN-BORN WORKFORCE POPULATION

Change in foreign-born workforce population from the same month the prior year.(Age 16 or older; in 1,000s.)

This is a very striking result. There hasn’t been a multi-month exodus on this scale since 2009. (The data series only goes back to 2008). And that was during and after the Great Recession. In contrast, the economy is now expanding.

And it’s also a dramatic change from the last years of the Obama Regime. Then year-over-year increases were running far in excess of the estimated 1 million legal immigrants a year—causing Ed Rubenstein to warn repeatedly that an unreported illegal alien surge was underway.

Deplorable US Public Ignorance, Attributable to Media Disinformation

Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet – despite 84% of households having a computer, 73% with broadband Internet access, according to Pew Research.   

Instead of relying on credible information sources easily available online, too many Americans apparently follow mainstream television – providing disinformation, Big Lies and fake news, masquerading as the real thing.

A mid-September Gallup poll showed 58% of US adults surveyed favor military action against North Korea if (nonexistent) diplomacy fails.

Support varied by party affiliation – 82% of Republicans favoring war, 56% of independents, only 37% of (undemocratic) Democrats.

A new Quinnipiac University poll showed 46% of Republicans support a preemptive strike on the DPRK, 41% against – 1% for is unacceptable.

North Korea threatens no other nations. It wants peace, not war, its national sovereignty recognized and respected by the world community, along with a peace treaty formally ending the 1950s war.

Memo From Middle America: Mexican Gun Control Doesn’t Work, But Mass Immigration Could Bring It Here Anyway

Immigration impacts every other political issue. And if mass immigration continues, Americans’ right to bear arms will be lost.

The Mexican media is mostly opposed to America’s Second Amendment. Mass shootings are widely publicized in the Mexican media and blamed on American gun laws. Mexico’s Excelsior has a regular online section entitled Violencia Armada en EU (“Armed Violence in the United States”)

Mexico’s gun laws are far stricter than America’s. It’s not illegal to own one, but the government makes it difficult. Civilian gun ownership is under the authority of the military, it’s harder to obtain a gun, there’s a lot of paperwork and expense and there’s only one gun store in the entire country  [At a Nation’s Only Gun Shop, Looking North in Disbelief, by Damien Cave, New York Times, July 24, 2012].

It wasn’t always so. The Mexican Constitution of 1857 stated in Article X: “Every man has the right to possess and bear arms for his security and legitimate defense. The law will indicate which are prohibited and the penalty to be incurred by those who bear them.” [Translation]

The 1917 constitution’s Article X also defined a right to bear arms.

Parade of dirtbags: Ben Affleck, Jimmy Kimmel, Harvey Weinstein all exposed as liberal Hollywood elitists who abuse women

Sometimes the longer you boil the pot, the more the scum rises to the top. It’s called “Hollywood.”

That’s what we’re all now witnessing with a gamut of liberal Hollywood elitists now being called out by women for abuse, exploitation, misogyny and every other sicko behavior the Hollywood culture ridiculously claimed was only carried out by conservatives.

Hollywood media “god” Harvey Weinstein’s world is imploding by the hour as women keep pouring out of the woodwork, affirming that he man-handled them into unwelcome gropes, perverted showers or even forced oral sex, all under the premise that Weinstein could turn them into movie stars if they would just drop their panties on command. The entire left-wing media, not surprisingly, covered up all this for at least a decade, enabling Weinstein to continue his predatory behavior that targeted young, vulnerable women. Those media outlets that engaged in the cover-up include the New York Times and NBC News, among dozens of other usual suspects.

Jimmy Kimmel, for his part, has been exposed for a video he filmed with multiple street women where he encourages women to “guess what’s in my pants” by putting their mouths on his crotch. Kimmel, of course, is the same anti-American Trump hater who also pushes vaccines on children in California in a kind of medical child molestation scheme that seems to get the jollies really humming for these sicko left-wing Hollywood elitists.

Catalan Independence: Out of Madrid’s Frying Pan, Into the NATO Fire?

Media on all sides surrounding the recent Catalan referendum for independence from Spain focused on Madrid’s security crackdown on voters. However, what is not being mentioned about Catalonia’s ongoing bid to achieve independence, who is leading it, and what their plans are for the region should they succeed, is just as important.

Catalonia is one of the most prosperous regions of Spain, possessing a population and GDP on par with or slightly above Singapore or Scotland. It has enjoyed various levels of autonomy for decades and – unlike many US-European “independence” projects around the world – could likely emerge as an independent and prosperous sovereign nation.

For this fact alone, many people support and are enthusiastic about Catalan independence.

Real Independence, or Shifting Dependence from Madrid to Brussels? 

However, despite attempts by the Western media and the special interests they represent to appear indifferent or even opposed to Catalan independence, policy papers from Western corporate-financier sponsored think tanks indicate an eagerness – particularly by NATO – to integrate what they expect to be a robust military capability into their global wars of aggression.

That ‘Israel Lobby’ Controversy? History Has Proved Us Right

Ten years ago, John Mearsheimer and I published a controversial article and subsequent book examining the impact of the “Israel lobby” — that is, a loose coalition of pro-Israel individuals and organizations like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and Christians United for Israel, just to name a few. We argued that decades of unconditional U.S. support for Israel — the so-called “special relationship” — is not explained by U.S. strategic interests or by shared values, as is often claimed, but is due primarily to the political efforts and activities of the lobby.

The result, we also argued, does more harm than good to both the United States and Israel. For the United States, the “special relationship” undermines America’s standing in the Arab and Islamic worlds, has encouraged a more confrontational approach with Iran and Syria, and contributes significantly both to America’s terrorism problem and to needless and costly debacles like the 2003 invasion of Iraq. For Israel, unquestioning U.S. support for almost all its actions has allowed the decades-long subjugation of the Palestinians to continue unchecked, undermining the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and threatening Israel’s future as a democratic and/or Jewish state.

We made it clear that the lobby was not a monolith controlling every aspect of U.S. Middle East policy, but rather a collection of disparate groups and individuals united by the aim of defending Israel’s actions and deepening the special relationship. We explicitly rejected the idea that anything nefarious was going on, explaining that AIPAC and related organizations were simply part of a powerful interest group like the farm lobby or the National Rifle Association. Their efforts to influence U.S. policy are “as American as apple pie.” And we used the term “Israel lobby” to highlight that not all American Jews support these policies and that some key members of the lobby (such as Christian Zionists) aren’t Jewish. The book also emphasizes that none of these groups or individuals is solely responsible for the choices U.S. leaders make.

As the article and book predicted, a firestorm of criticism followed their publication, including more than a few accusations that we are anti-Israel or anti-Semitic. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our aim was to elicit a debate that would help move America’s foreign policy in a wiser direction and increase Israel’s chances of achieving a durable, peaceful two-state solution with the Palestinians. By successfully squelching any criticism of Israel in almost any form, and by encouraging military action against Israel’s foes, the lobby — in our view — had led us away from both.

“Die”: The Unlimited Radicalism Of Antifa—Enforcer For Democrats (And, Tacitly, Conservatism Inc.)

In the alien invasion movie Independence Day, the beleaguered President of the United States, hoping he can forge some kind of a peace which will at least allow the survival of the human race, pleads, “What is it you want us to do?” The alien’s response is simple. “Die.”

The mind of a rational person rebels at the suggestion of such an unlimited, existential conflict. After all, reasonable people should always be able to come to some kind of a compromise, some settlement which will avoid violence and chaos. But there are some people who cannot be reasoned with, whose objectives are so unlimited and irrational that not only compromise, but co-existence with them is impossible.

Americans face such an existential threat in the form of the Leftist vigilante group that calls itself AntiFa. And now American have the first examination of the so-called “anti-fascists” from a patriot perspective in a new book Antifa: What Americans Need To Know About The Alt-Left. (Published by the eccentric but basically orthodox conservative website WND, the book oddly lists no author).

Antifa have been plaguing immigration patriots for many years. But it’s only recently that the average American has become aware of their existence. The attacks on Trump supporters during and after the presidential campaign has made Americans aware of what the president eventually termed the “Alt-Left.”

“Taking A Knee”—Is Racial Separation The Answer?

Genuflecting is in the news—football players, mainly black ones, “taking a knee” during pre-game playing of the National Anthem.  The most recent example, from this Sunday: teams kneeling before the anthem, and being booed anyway–NFL fans booed players for kneeling before national anthem and standing for it  | NFL players tried to show support for the cause while not disrespecting the flag, but fans booed anyway, by Taylor Link, Salon.com, October 1, 2017. ] What’s up with that?

I can only give a personal take on this—not, I’m aware, a thoroughly American take.

I am an American, a citizen for fifteen years now, and very glad to be one; but I grew up elsewhere, in a monoracial country—England had few blacks, in just a few areas, until I was well into my teens. I came here as an adult, 28 years old. So I don’t see the American racial scene the way born Americans see it and grow up with it.

To an outsider like me, one very striking thing about that scene was the deep, hungry yearning among most white Americans to think well of blacks.

After the Civil Rights reforms of the sixties, there was a widespread sentiment that with the injustices of the past set aside, we ought to be able to get to a place where we would be all citizens together, equal under the law and regarding each other in a spirit of equality. It might take a few years (people felt) and need some temporary remedies—Affirmative Action, contract set-asides, and so on—but we should get there, and be a united, reasonably harmonious nation by, oh, the year 2000, for sure.

Can a nation be mentally deranged?

Apparently so. America is Exhibit A, run by recklessly dangerous lunatics no matter which right wing of its duopoly governance holds power. Clear proof is overwhelming.

Madness defines US policy. The nation is permanently at war on humanity, naked aggression by any standard, smashing one nonbelligerent nation after another, threatening others, responsible for millions of casualties, more daily, endless mass slaughter and destruction in multiple theaters, exploiting its own people viciously, serving its privileged class exclusively at the expense of most others.

America is on a slippery slope toward unthinkable nuclear war—North Korea, Iran, Russia and China prime targets.

It’s inevitable if the madness continues. Washington’s quest for unchallenged global dominance is humanity’s greatest menace, a doomsday scenario threatening life on earth. Will it end with a bang, not a whimper?

North Korea is in the eye of the storm, Trump making reckless threats, his latest tweeting: “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”

Congress braces for Roger Stone show

After months of taunting congressional Russia investigators from afar, Roger Stone, a longtime confidant of President Donald Trump, will meet them face-to-face on Capitol Hill Tuesday in what he promises will be “epic” testimony debunking charges of collusion between the Kremlin and Trump associates.

The Republican operative will testify behind closed doors as part of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. But officials are braced for his unique brand of theatrics before, during, and after the session, not least because Stone says he will bring a reporter and cameraman to Capitol Hill with him.

Clearly relishing his moment at the center of Washington intrigue, the flamboyant Stone wrote in a Sunday tweet that the conspiracy-peddling pro-Trump website InfoWars was “embed[ding] a reporter and cameraman in Camp Stone for my epic testimony.”

"Never pass up a chance to have sex, be on television or testify before a House Congressional Committee,” he added in another.

And a day before his appearance before the panel, Stone posted a photo of himself reading a book titled The Russians, which he captioned: “Preparing for my testimony before the House Intelligence Committee tomorrow 9am.”

U.S. Near Bottom in Public Trust of Newsmedia

According to the most extensive study ever done of the public’s usages of, and trust in, the newsmedia in their country — a study that (in late January early February) scientically sampled thousands of people in each one of 36 different industrialized countries — the United States scored #28, which was in the bottom 22% of all 36 nations, regarding the public’s trust of the newsmedia. However, the average American had a 53% level of trust in the news-sources he or she is relying on. The country with the highest level of trust in the newsmedia generally was Finland, where 61% of the population trust the nation’s newsmedia. Two countries were tied for the last place in trusting the media among the 36 nations surveyed, both scoring a 23% level of trust: Greece, and Korea. All of the countries that scored below the U.S. (in order increasingly less-trusting than America, down to the very bottom) were: Czech Republic, Hungary, Taiwan, France, Malaysia, Slovakia, and then, Greece and Korea tied at the bottom.

Those figures appear on page 21 of the 136-page study, “Reuters Institute Digital News Report 2017”.

The surveys also asked respondents to rate themselves between far-left and far-right. The degree of political polarization in the United States, is shown on page 38, and turns out to be, by far — actually enormously — the highest polarization of all 36 countries. Whereas, in the other 35 countries, the residents reasonably constitute a nation where there is widespread political agreement (a coherent nation), the residents in the U.S. are more like a nation in ideological civil war. (Perhaps Ukraine, which wasn’t surveyed, is even worse, and maybe that’s why it split apart right after the 2014 U.S. coup there.)

On page 103 of the Reuters Institute’s report, is provided the details of the U.S. findings. This page shows that Americans whose main source of news is NPR are the farthest-left of all audiences, and that Americans whose main source of news is Fox News online (not the TV channel) are the farthest-right of all audiences. Among all 32 “News Brands” constituting the “Top Brands,” the only one that is anywhere near the poitical center (in its audience) is Yahoo! News. Only one among the 32 brands has an audience that rates itself to the right of center: Fox News online. Even the audience of the Fox News TV brand, rate themselves to the left of center. Apparently, more Americans are embarrassed at being categorized as rightists, than are embarrassed at being categorized as leftists. Maybe this has something to do with the phrase in America ‘political correctness’ being commonly associated with ‘liberal’ positions, and also helps explain ‘conservatives’ widespread contempt for ‘political correctness’. (Maybe Fox News on TV seems to them to be sufficiently ‘politically correct’ for them to be able to admit that it’s their main news-source.)

America's Jews Are Driving U.S. Wars

I spoke recently at a conference on America’s war party where afterwards an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked, “Why doesn’t anyone ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know it’s American Jews with all their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for Netanyahu? Shouldn’t we start calling them out and not letting them get away with it?”

It was a question combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is always the same: any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a quick trip to obscurity. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again. They are particularly sensitive on the issue of so-called “dual loyalty,” particularly as the expression itself is a bit of a sham since it is pretty clear that some of them only have real loyalty to Israel.

Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself. But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.

And while they are doing it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter. A recent article in the New Yorker on stopping the impending war with Iran strangely suggests that the current generation “Iran hawks” might be a force of moderation regarding policy options given the lessons learned from Iraq. The article cites as hardliners on Iran David Frum, Max Boot, Bill Kristol and Bret Stephens.

America's PC Plague a 'National Catastrophe' - Russia's #1 Anchor (Kiselyov)

In Russia, we are already so fed up with all that nonsense and thank God, we can now quietly write, publish, read, film and show our history. We can allow ourselves to look at events from different sides. I can’t say that we are always happy with our turbulent history, but at least unlike America, Poland or Ukraine, we don’t destroy monuments and don’t ban films. Otherwise, we would have to stop showing, for example, “And Quiet Flows the Don” or “Battleship Potemkin,” to ban the “The White Guard” or “Lenin in October.” Then, we would begin to destroy the monuments.

And then, we would get indignant because Chekhov romanticizes the old landlord life in the play “Three Sisters.” And then we would ask if we needed Chekhov at all? And did you know? Pushkin was a landowner himself. He received 200 servants as a wedding gift from his father. Is it possible to give living people as a gift? And hundreds of them at that? And what should we do with Pushkin now?

But this would mean applying today’s norms to the past. We have already spilt so much blood over the past, that we don’t want to reopen those wounds again. We want to heal our past divisions, to learn and accept everything as it was, and to learn from the experience. We don’t want new civil conflicts.

Meanwhile, America still has the energy to reopen old wounds and stoke the flames of resentment. Political Correctness only worked as a band-aid it seems, it masked the old tensions under a superficial layer of civility, meanwhile the old racial hostility and enmity smoldered in the deep like a simmering, submerged peat fire.

Shiksa Ivanka Trump Alt-Right Cover Girl? Puhleeze!

I can’t believe the total PC insanity now afflicting America. I read someplace the other day leftys are claiming us “Alt-Righters” worship Ivanka Trump as our “Cover Girl.” Complete BS. These YIDiots are insane. Ivanka is a card-carrying Jew convert, attends a Jew Supremacist Chabad Shul (SINagogue); along with her twerpy Jew hubby, Jared Kushner, who financially supports Zionist Jews land stealing the Palestinians in the West Bank. Beloved first daughter was also the first one to publicly prod her daddy, President Trump, into slandering all us “haters” in Charlottesville, even though ANTIFA were the real creeps behind the violence — right after the epic screwing by the lefty Virginia governor and Jewish mayor standing down the cops to let it happen.

It’s the Germanic blond hair thing with these White-haters. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve known plenty of super smart pro-White women with blond hair in my time. Whites have blond hair, brown hair, red hair and are brunettes. Whites themselves are the most beautifully diverse race on the planet — and we certainly don’t need, nor want, any nappy-haired, excrement-colored and nostril flaring flat-nosed bull crap!

Calling Shiksa Princess Ivanka “Cover Girl of the Alt-Right” is like calling Milo Yiannapolous (right) the intellectual political leader of the Alt-Right. Milo is a known Jewish homosexual from Britain, who happily brags about performing oral sodomy on black boyfriends. Sick! The guy is nothing more than a puffed-up pervert opportunist with phony bleached blond hair and slickster clothes, trying to make big bucks off the paradigm shift among us American Goyim. In a couple of years, he’ll look just like some ugly old Jew the same as the rest of them. The media claims Milo is “our leader” simply because he’s a fellow Jew. They fully expect him to toe the line when it comes to precious holocausted Jewry and their insane perversions they’ve unleashed in our countries simply because he’s a dirty little fag.*

All these people don’t care one lick about you. Never have. They just want you to keep it zipped, support sacred Israel, pay your taxes to the Federal Reserve on time and be all “tolerant” should some skinny Muslim Somali go off half-cocked and stab a bunch of us in a shopping mall. To them, we’re just a bunch of goyim trash no different than the non-White Third Worlders they keep bringing into our lands. Same BS is going on in Europe among the oh-so-fashionable elite over there. Whites are sick of this BS!

Tribalism Marches On!

Recently, a columnist-friend, Matt Kenney, sent me a 25-year-old newspaper with his chiding that my column had been given better play.

Both had run in The Orange County Register on June 30, 1991.

"Is there no room for new nations in the New World Order?" was my title, and the column began:

"In turning a stone face toward embattled Slovenia and Croatia, President Bush and Secretary of State James Baker have not only put America’s chips on the wrong horse. They have bet on a losing horse.

"Can the U.S. Government seriously believe that a Yugoslavia of such disparate peoples, all of whom wish greater freedom, most of whose republics wish to be free of Belgrade, is a viable nation?"

The State Department had denounced "these unilateral steps by Croatia and Slovenia" to break free: "As Secretary Baker made clear last Friday, we will neither encourage nor reward secession."
