Doomed

“Doomed”? That’s Why VDARE Has Bought A Castle! | Articles | VDARE.com

  • The key problem is that no one in the Ruling Class has an interest in stopping social collapse.
  • The path to power is seeking out things to be offended by and using state and media power to punish foes.
  • if you subsidize grievances, you’ll get more of it, until we get to the point where the system can no longer function.
  • When China is pursuing greatness while post-America is pursuing “equity,” it’s easy to see how this is all going to end
  • My view: what America needs is not extreme or unpopular. It involves abolishing racial distinctions in law, enforcing immigration control, establishing English as the official language, and giving ordinary Americans a stake in the social order by rebuilding the middle class with populist economic policies. Most of all, the government would need to stop incentivizing racial grievances politics. It doesn’t sound like much, but even as I write it, I know no Republican who would do it. Rather than trying to escape to civic nationalism, we have to figure out how to survive in a world defined by identity politics, rather than pretending it doesn’t exist [Dangerous Escapism, TheZMan, December 23, 2020].
  • Our job is to build a place of safety, physically, economically, and intellectually, for Americans who have been dispossessed from their birthright.

It seems more and more likely that what we need to do is let the current virus in our country run its course. It will not be easy, but probably will be the quickest way to see a healthier nation again.

We need to wake every morning with the courage of this boy.

The article above is a semi-encouraging read. These attempts to control in the manner the establishment is delivering ultimately fail. Leadership is not immune to stupidity. If you are stupid and want to rule a country you can try. But that will never make you smart or wise.

US Capitol Protest: Ruling Class Tantrum Shows Americans We Must All Hang Together

US Capitol Protest: Ruling Class Tantrum Shows Americans We Must All Hang Together | Articles | VDARE.com

  • Power can only be checked by power, and because President Donald J. Trump and the Conservative Movement ™ didn’t oppose the emerging Totalitarian Left when they had the chance, the Historic American Nation is about to suffer real tyranny under the boot of our corporate and political rulers.
  • The good news: the Capitol Hill protest and its subsequent repression was another step in the radicalization, not of the Dissident Right, which already knows the score only too well, but of the mass of ordinary American patriots.
  • President Trump is receiving the Alex Jones treatment, having lost access to social media and his email service.
  • Still, there’s hope to be found in this situation because progressives aren’t leaving ordinary Americans any way out. There are no more “conservatives” because there’s nothing left to conserve. There are just patriots on the one hand and collaborators with an increasingly hostile and hateful regime on the other.
  • One interesting thing about the Stop The Steal protest is that many of the “hard Right” e.g. Hunter Wallace of Occidental Dissent did not go—for two reasons:
    • First, many had long since given up on President Trump and definitely did not “trust the plan.” They had no illusions that POTUS was going to suddenly spring a trap on his enemies or metaphorically cross the Rubicon and become an American Caesar. If Trump had been a Caesar to begin with, he wouldn’t be in this position.
    • Second, and more importantly, they remembered the Charlottesville Unite The Right atrocity from back in 2017.They knew the laws would be selectively enforced, that those who participated would be hunted down and persecuted, and that they could well be labeled “terrorists” simply for being around the event. In other words, the “hard Right” has already given up on the American system, knows this is not a free country, and has no illusions that the Constitution still applies.
  • Thus, American patriots are confused. They still have it in their head that the U.S. is something called a “free country” and that they have the right to speak out about what is happening. They are now being enlightened about the fact that this is no longer true.
  • The corporations that benefitted the most from President Trump’s conservative economic policies have lost no time blasting the president and his supporters
  • This is a far different reaction than what we saw after months of Black Lives Matter riots, where various foundations received over $35 billion in grants and pledges from corporate America
  • Thus Senator Dick Durbin is apparently going to reintroduce his anti-white “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act” [Senator Dick Durbin plans to reintroduce domestic terrorism bill in wake of Capitol Hill attack, ABC7, January 8, 2021]. The bill begins by claiming that “White supremacists and other far-right-wing extremists are the most significant domestic terrorism threat facing the United States.”
  • It outlines several measures, including a mandatory domestic terrorism office, mandatory trainings, mandatory screening for “infiltration” of the uniformed services (i.e. purging the military and police of any conservatives), and various task forces and “fusion centers” to enforce the above [S. 894–116th Congress (2019-220)March 27, 2019].
  • Obviously, such organizations will constantly manufacture alleged White Supremacist plots to justify their budgets.
  • However, remember that if you speak a little too angrily about American cities being burned to the ground, you will be the one dragged in:
  • Buzzfeed is championing Pavlik Morozovstyle Stalinist denunciations of family members [An 18-Year-Old Saw Her Mom, Aunt, And Uncle in DC In A Video–So She Named Themby Clarissa-Jan Lim, Buzzfeed, January 8, 2021].
  • Whatever could justify such extraordinary tactics? Well, the Washington Post tells us that nothing less than preventing the rise of Nazism is at stake (surely a curious comparison to an Administration that has been more pro-Israel than any other in American history) [Pre-Nazi Germany tells us the fight to save American democracy is just beginningby Michael BrennerJanuary 9, 2021].
  • Now, with both media fanaticism and state power joined together, America’s emerging Totalitarian Left have the tools to “cleanse” America. It will wield the state power that Trump and cowardly conservatives refused to touch for four years.
  • Why then am I optimistic? Yes, it will be tiresome having to master decentralized blockchains and various obscure technologies just to communicate. It will be stressful dealing with the constant threat of violence from the System or the System’s militant wing. But the whole process is forcing us to adapt to hostile conditions, something we should have been doing anyway. (It’s why VDARE.com has bought a castle).And I think that it has to be this way. The logic of the Democrat/MSM hysteria is that there must be an ever-greater number of kulak-style enemies to be demonized and deplatformed. However, if you do that to enough people, deplatforming loses its sting. It’s also mentally freeing us from having a stake in what goes on in Washington D.C. I don’t care about the various games our rulers are playing in the Middle East, the Pacific, and Eastern Europe. I love my country, but the Potomac Regime has very little to do with that country [Men Without A Countryby Addison Del Mastro, American Conservative, November 21, 2020].Where others see despair, I see a crucible, something that will pave the way for a true national rebirth. We are the heirs of those who endured Valley Forge. Greatness can emerge only from struggle. With its absurd talk of “insurrection” and ludicrously obvious double standards, the Ruling Class has designated tens of millions of deplorables as something less than citizens, people outside respectable society. It’s a mistake. Our rulers need us. We don’t need them.
  • Like I’ve always said, I’m a short-term pessimist. This week’s events may look like a tactical set-back. But it’s just speeding something up that was happening anyway. The Left just can’t hold itself back from its eliminationist rhetoric and its borderline genocidal hatred of the Historic American Nation. My advice to VDARE.com readers: obey the law. Don’t say crazy stuff. Don’t give them an excuse.
  • Nevertheless, my guess is a lot of us are going to look at each other, as American patriots did after George III responded to their Olive Branch Petition by declaring them traitors subject to the death penalty, and conclude that whatever our differences, “Now we will all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

Race Distortions: West Point Cheaters

75% Of Cheaters In Latest West Point Scandal Are Athletes; 24 Are Football Players. Anything Else USA TODAY Might Tell Us?

Above, apparently reporting race is important when minorities graduate, but not when they’re caught cheating.

USA Today reports that the latest cheating scandal at West Point involves 73 cadets; 55, or 75 percent, are athletes [West Point cheating scandal involved mostly athletes, including 24 football players on Liberty Bowl team, by Tom Vanden Brook, December 30, 2020].  

Of that 55, 24 are football players.    So 43 percent of the 55 athletes caught cheating, and about a third of the students caught cheating, are football players  

My rough count of the team’s roster shows that about half of the team’s players are identifiably black.   

Question for USA Today’s Brook:

  • How many of the 24 football player are black?
  • How many are white?
  • How many are “other?”
  • And what about the other athletes?
  • What sports do they play, and
  • what is the racial breakdown of those cheaters?  
  • Asking for a friend …

Remember The Pilgrims

Earlier: A Mayflower Descendant Remembers Her Ancestors And The Faith Of Her (And America’s) Fathers

Four hundred years ago, in late December 1620, the Pilgrims who had sailed from England on the Mayflower finally came ashore at what would become Plymouth Plantation. They began building houses and a fort, painfully slowly because of the deep snow and frozen ground. While still on board, they had signed the Mayflower Compact (which has inspired VDARE.com’s 1620 Society).  You’d think such an auspicious anniversary would occasion many celebrations and re-enactments. Not so. 

Of course, it’s partly because of COVID-19 policies.  But even that shouldn’t prevent more media and political celebration, with COVID-19 accomodations. 

One must also suspect the influence of the  relentless Leftist attack on the America’s forbears and its English heritage explains the omission. By forcing us to forget the Pilgrims and their dangerous ocean voyage to settle a new land, Cultural Marxists intend to force us to forget the Historic American Nation. The Pilgrim saga and the story of Plymouth Rock must be retrofitted because of what it was: the establishment of an English Christian colony that was a foundation of the current United States of America. 

The Cultural Marxists portray it as the beginning of a racial genocide, as the reliably Leftist Associated Press just did [400 years on, Mayflower’s legacy includes pride, prejudice, by David Goldman and Alanna Durkin Richer, October 23, 2020]. And on the other, it must be transmogrified into something it wasn’t: the arrival of “refugees” and “illegal immigrants.”

(Right, the cover of the New Yorker from Thanksgiving, 2011.)

How about radical Latino activists?  Consider that 24 years ago, for instance,  Agustin Cebada, of the Brown Berets of Aztlan, offered this boiling bile:

“Go back to the Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims!” he shouted. “Get out! We are the future. You’re old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you; leave like beaten rats.”

[Mexico’s “Reconquista” — We Have Been Warned,American Renaissance, June 1998].

Listen below, and go here for more:

But perhaps that was thought to be too explicit. Some on the Left have settled on rewriting the story of the Pilgrims: They were not settlers, but instead “refugees” and “illegal immigrants,” as I wrote when describing the effort to Hispanicize Thanksgiving.

Of course this is wrong, given that a country must already exist for the refugees or illegal immigrants go to. But recasting the narrative that way enlists the Pilgrims as partners in The Great Replacement being orchestrated by today’s refugees and illegal aliens.

How, the argument goes, can we deport illegal immigrants today? The Pilgrims were illegal too! And they were refugees from religious oppression! How dare we deny Islamic refugees a play in this Melting Pot—this Nation of Immigrants!

Of course, the Pilgrims were neither. They were settlers looking for a place to establish their own sectarian polity, where they got to make the rules.

The Pilgrims  didn’t call themselves Pilgrims, but “Saints”. They were also referred to as “Brownists,” after Separatist Robert Browne (who later returned to the Anglican Church). The term “Pilgrims” only came into use in 1800 [What’s the Difference Between Puritans and Pilgrims? by Dave Roose, History.com, July 31, 2019].

A Calvinist sect, the Pilgrims were Separatists who had separated from the Church of England because they did not believe it could be purified according to their beliefs.  They wanted to create their own society, governed by their own religious principles, and so, while still  wanting to remain English culturally, they  left their country for Leiden in The Netherlands during the reign of James I.

They began arriving in 1607, the year Jamestown was founded in the New World. Some were textile workers; others taught English to Dutchmen. (Teaching English in a foreign country, by the way, is still a stereotypical Anglo expatriate thing. I taught English in Mexico for years.)

Though the Pilgrims freely practiced their religion in Holland, they left because England’s King James was prodding the Dutch government to crack down on them. And, significantly, they were concerned that their children were assimilating to their host country; i.e. becoming Dutch. They were English, and wanted to remain English.

When the chance came to colonize a new world, they took it. They would still be on English territory, yet they would also be autonomous. Their only financial obligation: repaying the joint stock company that sponsored the colony. In that exchange, beaver pelts were coin of the realm.

Having returned to England to embark on the adventure, the settlers were supposed to sail on two ships, the Speedwell and the Mayflower. The passengers, including some who hadn’t lived in Leiden, packed onto the Mayflower after they determined the Speedwell was leaking and unseaworthy.

It left Plymouth, on the south coast of Devon, on September 16. To today’s Americans with modern comforts, the prospect of crossing the Atlantic on a wooden ship, with all its dangers and discomforts and no GPS or iPhones, would be impossibly daunting. Not so for the Pilgrims. It was a chance for a new life, free from the smothering edicts of the Anglican Church.

They sighted Cape Cod on November 19. The Mayflower attempted to sail south toward the Hudson River, but strong currents and unexpected shoals, and nearly being shipwrecked  convinced the crew to turn back.  They  dropped anchor in Provincetown Harbor at the northern end of the hook-shaped Cape Cod,  on November 21.  This is where they drafted and signed the famous Mayflower Compact.

For the next month, groups of Pilgrims and crew scouted the area in a smaller sailing vessel called  a shallop,  seeking a suitable settlement location.  They eventually decided upon “New Plymouth”, which had been previously named by none other than John Smith, former leader of the Jamestown colony, who had explored that coast (and named it New England) in 1614.  

On December 16, the The Mayflower dropped anchor in New Plymouth Harbor and after 3 days, a specific  settlement site abandoned by the Patuxet Indians was chosen. 

The first formal landing party disembarked on December 21 (O.S. December 11) and two days later, construction began.  This is celebrated in Plymouth on December 22 as “Forefathers’ Day“.

But throughout the winter, most of the Pilgrims remained on the Mayflower, with the bulk of the passengers not disembarking until March 31, 1621.

They Mayflower and crew didn’t leave until April 15. 

The Plymouth Colony  lasted just 72 years. It was absorbed by the Province of Massachusetts Bay, dominated by the later-settled but larger Massachusetts Bay Colony of Puritans.

Nevertheless, Plymouth is the most famous of the English colonies which eventually became the United States of America, partly because of the First Thanksgiving in the Fall of 1621.

Today, it’s estimated that  35 million people are descendants of  51 Plymouth Rock colonists.

The General Society of Mayflower Descendants has 30,000 members and worldwide chapters. Some descendants claim several colonists as ancestors. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin descended from six.

I present below a partial list of Americans who wouldn’t be here if William Bradford and his stout band hadn’t sailed for Plymouth Rock, from the following six sources:

 

PRESIDENTS

John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Zachary Taylor, Ulysses S. Grant, James A. Garfield, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush

Note on Coolidge: In a 1920 tricentennial speech, Coolidge, then governor of Massachusetts and vice president-elect, said he was not a Mayflower descendant. Instead, he said, his ancestors were Massachusetts Bay Puritans [Learn From Pilgrims, Coolidge Admonishes, The New York Herald, November 23, 1920]. However, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants claims Coolidge descended from Plymouth colonists and the website Mayflower Faces documents it.  So Coolidge descended from both groups of Massachusetts colonists.

OTHER POLITICAL PERSONAGES

Frances Perkins, Nelson Rockefeller, Dan Quayle , Howard Dean, U.S. Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and Barbara Bush (née Pierce), Jeb Bush and George P. Bush

MILITARY LEADERS

Generals George McClellan and Leonard Wood.

ACTORS

LITERARY FIGURES

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, Noah Webster, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Phillips Brooks clergyman (wrote O Little Town of Bethlehem), Ambrose Bierce, Ernest Hemingway, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and John Bartlett (Bartlett’s Quotations).

OTHER FAMOUS AMERICANS

Lavinia Warren (dwarf performer), Julia Child, Cokie Roberts, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., Grandma Moses , Amelia Earhart, Alan ShepardBenjamin Spock, Hugh Hefner, and “Mayflower Madam” Sydney Biddle Barrows.

NON-AMERICANS

British actor Benedict Cumberbatch and Canadian songstress Avril Lavigne. Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece is a Mayflower descendant on her American-born father’s side. Jan Masaryk, foreign minister of Czechoslovakia from 1940-1948, was a Mayflower descendant on his American mother’s side.

These are only a few Mayflower descendants.  Maybe you’re one too.  Although I’m not (the Wall family lived in colonial Virginia) I honor them as founders of our nation. 

What the Pilgrims accomplished and left for the world, a new nation and millions of descendants, was no mean feat. And so we must not allow the Pilgrims to be ignored, or worse, turned into villains, or redefined to fit today’s leftist narratives.

To its credit, the U.S. Postal Service has produced a beautiful stamp featuring the Mayflower to honor our Pilgrim heritage. Buy some, and use them proudly.

The Pilgrims must be honored for what they are: Founders of the Historic American Nation.

Banks Destroying Freedom

Did Jesus teach that we cannot serve both God and unrighteous mammon? Does that mean that money is second only to God in the list of things that influence us the most?

If these things are true, doesn’t it stand to reason that the misuse of or control of or exploitation of money might be the single most sought after target by any enemy of our wellbeing? And doesn’t that mean we ought to make it one of our priorities to see that these things never happen?
