Fort Worth police say the United States Marshal Task Force has arrested one suspect, but no details are being released in order to help with solving the crime.

Another reader comments:

What happened to this poor girl and the countless other white women murdered by blacks will NEVER happen to my two daughters. One of whom, unfortunately, is blonde. From their earliest years they've been instructed to have NOTHING to do with blacks. They're not even to stop for black cops unless there's lots of people around. It’s the only way to protect your daughters, if they're white.

1945 Diary of Hitler Sympathizer Fetches over $700,000 at Auction; Media Spin the Truth into Its Opposite


Inge Arvad, left

By Nicholas Stix

Some postwar journals by future president John F. Kennedy just sold at auction for $718,000, after being expected to fetch only about $200,000.

The Kennedys were notorious Nazi sympathizers, so notorious that FDR had to call Joe Kennedy Sr. home from his post as the ambassador at the court of St. James. While the Queen Mother refused to leave London during the Blitz, Joe took his family and fled the city for the suburbs, which led to his being widely vilified as a coward. On top of his cowardice, Kennedy’s clear sympathy for Hitler turned the one-time presidential aspirant into political poison.

As for son Jack, if he had any sage observations, they are one of history’s best-kept secrets.
In the diary, Kennedy reflected on his time in a gutted Berlin and even saw Hitler's bunker, speculating that he was not killed. He wrote that Hitler "had in him the stuff of which legends are made." But Henderson said in an interview last month that should not be misinterpreted as sympathy for the German dictator.

"He said that in reference to the mystery surrounding him and not the evil he represented," Henderson said….

Henderson said she put the diary up for sale so it can be properly preserved, and she's confident the winning bidder will respect her wish. She said she wanted the sale to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Kennedy's birth this year.

"I'm more than pleased with the outcome," Henderson said. "I think it was the right price at the right time."
The “Henderson” in question would be “Deirdre Henderson, a research assistant in his campaign office in the late 1950s…”

Deirdre Henderson is lying like a Persian rug. Her motive is simple: If the truth were known, she would have made a fraction of the $718,000 killing she hauled in.

The young Jack Kennedy had no ideas of his own. Kennedy patriarch Joe Sr. told Jack what to think, and that was fine by the son.

Early in the war, Jack’s Harvard thesis, Why England Slept, was “edited,” at Joe Sr.’s behest, by New York Times columnist Arthur Krock. The elder Kennedy put together an aggressive, well-connected marketing campaign that turned Krock’s, er, Jack’s book into a bestseller.

Jack was a hero, to be sure, in large part due to being a great swimmer, a family tradition, but before he was a war hero he was a war heel.

While serving in Naval Intelligence, one of JFK’s mistresses was Inga Arvad, a Dane suspected of being a Nazi spy. The young whoremonger was ordered to cease and desist from any contact with her, but he ignored the order.

Jack Kennedy’s insubordination would have earned a junior officer with less powerful family connections a court martial, conviction, stripping of rank, separation from the Navy, and possible prison time. But Jack was a Kennedy. Instead, Joe Sr. got his wayward son transferred to the Pacific Theater of Operations, as skipper of a PT boat.

It turned out that Arvad, a gossip columnist and former Miss Denmark, was not a Nazi spy, but she had played footsie with the Nazis, including Hitler himself, for so long that the suspicion was justified. Besides, when you’re in the military, you follow orders. Unless you’re a Kennedy, that is.

In 1956, Harper Books published Profiles in Courage, a book that was part of the plan for the young senator from Massachusetts’ run for the White House in 1960. The book was a bestseller, won the Pulitzer Prize, and created the illusion that the junior senator was a man of letters.

In fact, the entire book had been written by family retainer Ted Sorenson. Thus, Profiles in Courage is part of the long history of fraudulent Pulitzers, only one of which has been revoked or returned (that one being Janet Cook’s Pulitzer for the journalism hoax she perpetrated on behalf of the Washington Post and the late Ben Bradlee).

I bought Profiles in Courage through the Scholastic Book Service when I was eight years old, and in the third grade. The only thing I recall from the book was a sentence that ran on for over an entire page. (It must have contained an army of semi-colons!) Since I had been taught that President Kennedy was a genius, I figured that the ability to write endless sentences was one of the hallmarks of genius.

My first college philosophy professor, the late Richard Magagna, informed his classes that he had the same talent President Kennedy had had, to read incredibly fast by splitting a page in two, and scanning each side separately.

I have no idea about Richard Magagna’s reading speed, but I figure that the story about JFK is just another myth.

Given that there is no evidence of any writing or intellectual talent on the part of the real JFK, I suspect that his dispatches out of Europe as a “correspondent” for Hearst were actually authored by someone else.

Deirdre Henderson’s fairy tale explaining away the truth behind Kennedy’s fascination with Hitler continues the JFK Myth, which is just one example of magical thinking which declares that people may not subject certain individuals, or members of certain classes, to rational thought or standards.

Just yesterday, I was recounting to my chief of research how, when I taught remedial College Composition, all the writing anthologies contained the same execrable essays by racist blacks: James Baldwin’s “If Black English isn’t a Language, Tell Me What is”; Alice Walker’s “Blue”; and “Maya Angelou’s” “Graduation Day in Stamps.” And yet, writing instructors using them are obligated to present them as being brilliant.

Baldwin made assertions without any arguments on their behalf, made false factual statements, and tried to guilt-trip whites into submitting to his demand. (For an example of a false factual statement, Baldwin asserted, in 1979, that all blacks knew what the sexual phrase “Jazz me” meant. The phrase was apparently part of the slang of Baldwin’s childhood in Harlem during the 1930s and ‘40s.)

In “Blue,” Alice Walker claimed to be able to read all of the world’s oppression in the eyes of a corralled horse.

And Maya Angelou/Marguerite Ann Johnson’s “memoir,” “Graduation,” purportedly about her school graduation in Stamps, Arkansas in 1940, which revolved around a supposed racist outrage perpetrated by her white principal, lacked credibility the first time I read it during the 1990s. It appeared to be revisionist history. Since then, I have learned to take all of her “memoirs” as fakery.

The only one of the three foregoing authors I taught was Alice Walker. Her essay was so bad that I had no choice but to “teach against the text.” However, I found the exercise tiresome and degrading, and went back to teaching worthy texts, which did not require that I shut down my reason, or lie about their quality.

For generations, it wasn’t just JFK, but Bobby Kennedy, too, who got the magic treatment.

Ted Kennedy also got that treatment for several years, but when he didn’t have the decency to get himself assassinated, and his evil became impossible for even the MSM to hide, it became impossible, outside of DPUSA fanatics and the state of Massachusetts to force the nation to adore him.

I have to wonder what the real motivation was for Senator Kennedy to give his old post-war journal to his young research assistant during the late 1950s, if indeed he gave it to her. I would think that he’d have told her to burn it. If it had come out that Sen. Kennedy was a Hitler sympathizer, his political career would have been as dead as his father’s. Jack Kennedy was one lucky dog—until the day his luck ran out.

JFK diary written in post-WWII Europe sells for $718,000
By mgshare

BOSTON (AP) — A diary kept by a young John F. Kennedy during his brief stint as a journalist after World War II in which he reflected on Hitler and the weakness of the United Nations sold for more than $700,000 Wednesday, according to the auction house.

Boston-based RR Auction said the diary sold for $718,750, far exceeding the pre-sale estimate of $200,000. Joseph Alsop, a JFK collector from Beverly, outbid one other live and six telephone bidders in a packed house for the 61-page diary. Alsop, 71, plans to add it to his personal collection, auction officials said.

The diary, mostly typed but includes 12 handwritten pages, was written in 1945 when the 28-year-old Kennedy was a correspondent for Hearst newspapers and traveled through a devastated Europe.

Executive Vice President Bobby Livingston said the auction was thrilling, with bidders from around the country vying for the personal observations of the man who'd become president.

"My expectations were exceeded, but I'm not surprised because it's such a significant and historic manuscript," Livingston said.

Kennedy gave the diary to Deirdre Henderson, a research assistant in his campaign office in the late 1950s who now lives in the Boston area.

In the diary, Kennedy reflected on his time in a gutted Berlin and even saw Hitler's bunker, speculating that he was not killed. He wrote that Hitler "had in him the stuff of which legends are made." But Henderson said in an interview last month that should not be misinterpreted as sympathy for the German dictator.

"He said that in reference to the mystery surrounding him and not the evil he represented," Henderson said.

Kennedy expressed doubt about the effectiveness of the fledgling United Nations, questioning whether it "will prove effective in the sense of its elaborate mechanics being frequently employed or vitally decisive in deterring war or peace."

Henderson said she put the diary up for sale so it can be properly preserved, and she's confident the winning bidder will respect her wish. She said she wanted the sale to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Kennedy's birth this year.

"I'm more than pleased with the outcome," Henderson said. "I think it was the right price at the right time."

Kennedy, the 35th U.S. president, served from January 1961 until he was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

Racist, Flash Mob Robberies/Riot on the BART Train in San Francisco, with the Media as Accessories After the Fact!

By Jerry PDX
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 5:56:00 P.M. EDT

Flash mob robbery on BART the train in San Francisco. All the usual media deceptions are present:

“Teens used as descriptor”—code word for black, as we all know.

Reporters, as usual, track down a black passenger on the train, who gives the usual insincere speech about how “terrible” it is and how “afraid” he was.

He wasn't afraid, blacks never are because they know whites are the targets. I'd be curious to know if even one black passenger was robbed. I'm gonna bet none was.

No pictures or descriptions, purportedly because the flash mob was virtually all “minors”? Did they flash their student I.D.s? I'm sure there were lots of under 18s, probably most of them, but it's not uncommon for 18-and-overs to participate in these flash attacks. I have no doubt some of them were fully adult-sized. So how do they really know they were “all” were kids? You can't tell that from grainy train footage and can't count on witness descriptions in a stressful, violent situation like that.

[I don’t believe that the media are legally forbidden form showing videos of criminals, if the criminals are under 18. That “law” may be a media fiction.]

So what's the line of when you can show pictures of violent black thugs? If one appears to be a minor in a group of 30, does that mean you can't show the video? If 29 are minors but one is an adult does that mean you can? Let's be clear about this, it's only an issue when it's negroes. If they were white, they'd find a rationalization to put it on the front pages.

It states in the video that BART has had a number of these kind of flash robberies but only filed police reports. No warnings were issued to passengers, and no steps were taken to protect passengers. That's downright evil. We know it's the fear of drawing attention to negro violence that causes the BART officials to keep the lid on this violence. If the perps were white, there'd be no problem blaming violent whites and putting their faces in the eyes of the public. And the band plays on.

Lawyers want Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction dismissed
By “mgshare”
April 25, 2017 at 12:11 p.m. CDT

BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for former NFL star Aaron Hernandez are formally asking that his first-degree murder conviction be dismissed in Massachusetts now that he has died.

A spokesman for the Bristol district attorney's office says the motion was filed by defense attorneys on Tuesday in Superior Court. He says prosecutors will oppose the motion.

Hernandez hanged himself at a maximum-security state prison last week, just days after he was acquitted of fatally shooting two Boston men in 2012. He was serving life without parole in the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player.

Courts in Massachusetts have held that when a defendant dies before having an appeal heard, the conviction is vacated. Hernandez's appeal hadn't yet been heard when he hanged himself.

Hernandez's funeral was held Monday.

D.A. King on Georgia Bill Requiring Information Sharing on Illegal Alien Felons Released Back on America’s Streets

Georgia Legislature Passes Simple but Important Public Safety Criminal Alien Info-Sharing Bill – HB 452
By D.A. King
Dustin Inman Society

Before it concluded on March 30, the Georgia General Assembly passed HB 452, which requires the state’s highest law enforcement agency, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to share information all states are receiving concerning convicted, criminal aliens who have been released onto American streets because of unsuccessful deportation attempts. The most common reason for non-deportation is that the home nation refuses to accept the criminal aliens back when the U.S. orders him deported.

Because of the immense public pressure – including in the national media - applied for passage (here and here and here ) of the original one-page version of HB 452, the state senate added language of another mostly unrelated bill that had been rejected by the House when it became clear that HB 452 was gong to see final passage.

We link to the pertinent language of HB 452 here.

It should be noted that in 2015 the feds released almost 20,000 criminal aliens who should have been deported. HB 452 will now lead to expansion of info sharing on illegal aliens who are in Georgia jails and to point out to legislators that they are allowing these same individuals to obtain Georgia drivers licenses.

These convicted criminal victims of borders had a total of 64,197 convictions among them. These included 8,234 violent convictions and 208 homicide convictions. HB 452 was conceived and written to require GBI to share the information it has been getting from the feds for the last eighteen months with all of Georgia’s county sheriffs and to post the criminal aliens’ personal info on a public website. This data comes to every state through a federal notification system known as EID/LENS.

Model legislation
Pro-enforcement activists in other states who see the deterrent and public safety value in allowing local law enforcement and the general public to be forewarned about the release of criminal aliens into their communities should use the language of HB 452 as a model. They should also be aware of the corporate-funded open borders lobby’s endless attempts to dilute or kill legislation like this with baseless howls of “anti-immigrant” and “civil rights” and “privacy rights” violations. Also that HB 452 is “bad for business.”

Be advised: The U.S Privacy Act does not apply to illegal aliens.

Legal Match Law blog
for example:

“While the Privacy Act doesn’t require the inclusion of people other than U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, since 2007 it has been the policy of the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to extend its protections more broadly and include non-citizens. In 2014, a policy directive signed by President Obama also imposed limits on the ability of U.S. agencies to use intelligence collected in bulk “whatever their nationality and regardless of where they may reside.” Trump’s order rolls back the clock on these changes–and governments abroad have taken notice.”

Here in Georgia, the liberal AJC newspaper also tried to kill the bill with fake news reporting on its contents.

HB 452 passed the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee with a bipartisan unanimous vote, but ran into trouble in the GOP controlled senate because of an anti-enforcement Republican committee Chair and race-baiting Democrat assertions that the bill is “unconstitutional.”

HB 452 awaits signature by Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, who has 40 days after the final day of session to sign or veto. He can also do nothing, which allows the bill to become law.

We worked on HB 452 language and research for nearly two years.

Karl Mannheim and Me

Back in West Germany, circa 1983, I read Karl Mannheim’s classic work, Ideologie und Utopia. Yeah, the title is virtually identical in German and English.

Although the book was lucidly written, I honestly can’t remember more than what I had previously read about Mannheim, and what I’ve since seen about him—the idea of a “frei-schwebende Intelligenz,” a “free-floating intelligentsia.”

I thought to myself, That’s me!

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Even wealthy intellectuals feel the need for a home, and they get one, even multiple ones. Once an alleged scholar or intellectual proves he doesn’t need the money, people throw it at him.

The first law of Stixian economics is, Money helps money.

Well, none of my donors is rich, and yet they give me money!

Liberals Want To Kill Free Speech, So We Patriots Must Fight Back
By Kurt Schlichter
April 24, 2017 12:01 A.M.
Town Hall

Understand that if America is stupid enough to let liberals take power again, they will persecute and prosecute normal Americans like us who dare to dissent. That’s not a guess or a prediction – that’s a commitment they have made to their fascist followers. They’ve seen what the truth can do to their schemes. After 2016, there’s no way they are going to take a chance on another electoral rejection by us normals, so they don’t even pretend to support free speech anymore. It will be one gender neutral being-one vote, one more time, and then never again.

Hold on. That’s clearly nuts, right? This is obviously crazy talk that’s talking crazy, isn’t it? Don’t liberals love free speech?


We know they don’t love free speech because they tell us they don’t, in both words and deeds. The whole free speech thing lost a lot of its luster for the libs when people like us decided to try it out. The liberals didn’t count on that – free speech was supposed to be their jam, a way to offend, annoy, and outrage us squares, to blow our bourgeois minds with their transgressive, no-holds-barred free thoughtery and critical thinkery. But they never intended for it to allow those banjo-strumming rubes living between I-5 and I-95 to express wrong thoughts and thereby win elections.

So now the progressives are trying to do something about it. Recently, every single Democrat voted to effectively repeal the First Amendment. You see, the words “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” were too expansive for liberals’ tastes because they prevented Congress from making laws abridging the freedom of speech.

This creepy idiocy was in response to Citizens United, a Supreme Court case that, to people who actually believe in free speech and not liberal fascism, conforms to the First Amendment by telling the federal government that no, you can’t put people in jail for making a movie critical of Hillary Clinton.

Yes, you read it correctly. Democrats think that Congress should be able to make laws to put people in jail for making movies critical of Democrat politicians. Roll that around in your head for a while.

Now, they call it “campaign finance reform,” and their argument is that they aren’t really limiting speech - just limiting how people spend their own money. Apparently, under the First Amendment, we are allowed to say anything we want, but Congress can pass a law telling us that we just can’t spend any money to actually be heard.

It would mean the government can tell us we can’t buy paper, we can’t buy ads, we can’t buy video tape, we can’t pay a film crew or writers, and we can’t pay for airtime. Congress could even tell us we can’t buy internet access to post our thoughts on Twitter or Facebook. And Congress, in the Dems’ utopia, could even pass a law not letting you spend a few measly pennies to buy my awesome book about how liberals will split our country in two.

Yes, they want to be able to ban books.

Other than that, under the liberals’ paradigm, we can speak to our hearts content, though only to people within shouting range. But don’t worry. The official, approved mainstream media would be exempt – and unofficial, unapproved media, well, not so much. “Fake news” and all that – “fake” being defined as “critical of liberals.” Fortunately, we’d have such unbiased, nonpartisan, objective outlets like the New York Times and CNN (starring noted free speech scholar Fredo Cuomo) to provide us open forums to air our conservative views. Also, we could get unicorns to skywrite our opinions for free using rainbows spewing from beneath their fluffy tails.

What’s still unclear is what prison sentence Democrats would impose upon someone who breaks the law by exhibiting a film or writing a book critical of Hillary Clinton. One year? Five years? Life in SuperMax? Come on Democrats, how long would you imprison someone for illegal speech?

And what should the penalty be for climate change denial? Since rejecting their weird climate religion is Earth-murder, or something, you would think they’d want to burn you at the stake – or is that too carbony?

Then there’s that clinical moron Howard Dean, who is ironically famous for his own bizarre exercise of the First Amendment. Leveraging all his intellectual fire power, he recently unloaded his mental squirt gun upon those of us who think the First Amendment means what it actually says. “Hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment,” he announced on Twitter, apparently having discovered a constitutional exception that would allow Democrats to stifle any speech they choose to stick the “hate speech” label on. Which would, of course, be anything and everything we normals want to say.

This “I don’t like what you are saying so it’s hate speech now shut-up” footnote to the First Amendment is well-known at our colleges and universities. These bastions of free thinking freely admit thinking that we normals have no right to think freely at all. The fact that California law enforcement is regularly ordered to stand back and allow conservative speakers and their audiences to be intimidated and beaten in order to silence them is just a preview of the new America that liberals dream of. If you imagine the unholy love child of the economic basket case/police state of Venezuela and the grim intolerance of your local campus, you have a pretty good idea of the new, fascist America the Democrats seek to breed.

Think that analysis is wrong? Well, here’s a complete list of all prominent Democrats standing up against these free speech abominations:


Liberals should be ashamed of themselves, but then they wouldn’t be liberal if they were born with shame genes. So, since we patriots are the only ones who actually support free speech, what do we patriots do to protect it?

Whatever it takes.

We fight peacefully in the political arena, in the courts, and in the shrinking marketplace of ideas while we can, but we must also be ready to fight in the streets when those punky puffboys try to shut us up. No quarter, no compromise, no surrender – we fight and win, or they shut us up forever.

Look, the left has told us what it wants – the power to force us to be silent and submit. That’s not wacky supposition; that’s not fevered imagination. They are open about their agenda, and it’s happening before our eyes. To pretend that our republic is not facing an existential threat from progressives who would use violence to silence their political opponents is to willfully ignore the evidence, just like a climate cultist ignores cold weather. And the violence has already begun: in fact, it is key to their plan for a free speech-free future. Today it’s gangs of masked thugs attacking us. Tomorrow, it’s uniformed men with guns – or at least those few spineless cowards among our security forces will ignore their oaths to defend the Constitution in exchange for a paycheck and a pension – dragging us off to jail for illegal speech. Or worse.

We patriots face a stark choice. We could choose the easy path of submission and hope that the left will leave us be if we just give in to their demands and give up on our right to participate in our own governance. But that won’t ever work – the true joy of leftism comes from imposing the leftists’ collective will upon its designated villains, and one guess as to the identity of those designated villains.


No, they don’t want to leave us alone – that misses the whole point of being a leftist. A leftist yearns to be the one doing the bullying and dominating. If we give in, we will spend the rest of our lives with their soft, girly hands around our necks.

And if we are so gutless as to give up our God-given rights in exchange for “peace,” we deserve that pathetic, dishonorable fate.

But we won’t give up. We won’t surrender. No matter how hard they punch, as Instapundit urges, we’ll punch back twice as hard.

It was funny seeing those antifa dorks get wedgies in Berkeley, but our enemies are serious about stripping us of the rights that our Creator endowed upon all men and women. Many of us are veterans or law enforcement, and our oaths to defend the Constitution even at the cost of our lives did not come with an expiration date. Millions more who did not take one of those oaths subscribe to them nonetheless. We promised not to let a fascist regime take hold, and we intend to keep our promise.

The First Amendment is followed by the Second Amendment for just this reason – history will record that our people’s unique refusal to be disarmed by those who seek to steal our liberties was a key factor why we will never be Venezuela II: The Revenge.

Our only chance of avoiding a catastrophe is if our would-be progressive overlords understand that for us normal Americans, there are only two possible outcomes. And living at their mercy as their serfs is not one of them.

The outcome we want is that we normals live free in a democratic republic exercising the rights enshrined in the Constitution, whether because leftists choose to respect our civil rights, or because we force them to respect our civil rights.

The other alternative is that we die on piles of spent brass surrounded by the bodies of our enemies. Either one’s cool – but submission to slavery is not an option.

That un-American, wannabe fascist Howard Dean need only look at a license plate from neighboring New Hampshire to understand how this is going to end. We’ll either live free or die.

Remembering Lawrence Auster


Lawrence Matthew Auster January 26 1949—March 29, 2013, picture taken shortly before his death.


Remembering Lawrence Auster, After a Year
By Nicholas Stix
March 29, 2014

America lost Lawrence Auster to pancreatic cancer one year ago today— March 29, 2013. editor Peter Brimelow immediately noted Larry’s passing, VDARE’s Henry McCulloch wrote a lengthy obituary, and several Dissident Right bloggers, some of whom began maintaining vigils for Auster during the last days of his struggle, paid their last respects here, here, here, here, and many more, including my partner-in-crime, David in TN, and yours truly.

The American Conservative’s Scott McConnell had already written a sort of pre-obituary bizarrely claiming that Auster was reminiscent of Meir Kahane, Sam Francis, and “various European fascist intellectuals” like Robert Brasillach and Julius Evola (though he admitted to not even being familiar with the last two). [Extremism in the Defense of Tradition, February 15, 2013.]

Auster responded with characteristic savagery—remember, only days before he died—here.

But the Main Stream Media, Leftist and “conservative”—including outlets like National Review and Front Page Magazine—completely ignored Auster’s passing. Never mind that he had written for them, or that his blog, View from the Right, was one of the most popular, free-standing political blogs on the Web. Never mind the depth and breadth of his postings, covering multiculturalism, black-on-white crime, politics, Christian theology, Homer, popular culture, immigration and the damn Yankees, or his prominent, pre-Internet writing career.

Auster was born a Jew in 1949, but was never observant. He became a hippie in his twenties, and in middle age converted to Christianity, progressing from Episcopalianism to a deathbed conversion to Catholicism.

During the 1990s, Auster was one of the first major writers—with Peter Brimelow and Chilton Williamson—to warn Americans about the dangers of mass Third World immigration. He wrote a series of rigorously-argued essays for the American Immigration Control Foundation (AICF): Path to National Suicide (PDF, 1990); Huddled Clichés (1997); and Erasing America: the politics of the borderless nation (2003).

Path to National Suicide showed, among other things, how the 1965 Immigration Act applied the attitude behind the 1964 Civil Rights Act to the entire world. If one of the consequences of the CRA was that American blacks were to be treated in effect as American whites’ superiors—because whites were to be denied freedom of association—the consequence of the Immigration Act was to make all foreign non-whites legally superior to white American citizens. Auster wrote:
“At a time when increasing racial and ethnic diversity makes the re-affirmation of our common culture more vitally important than ever, we are, under the mounting pressure of that diversity, abandoning the very idea of a common American culture. We are thus imperiling not only our social cohesiveness but, as I will try to show, the very basis of our national existence….

Under this new dispensation we owe, as it were, an obligation to all the peoples in the world to let them migrate here en masse and recreate American society in their image….

“One can only wonder what would happen if the proponents of open immigration allowed the issue to be discussed, not as a moralistic dichotomy, but in terms of its real consequences….
But the tyranny of silence has prevented the American people from freely making that choice….
[A Word to the Reader, introduction to The Path To National Suicide]

Senator Sam Ervin (D-NC) — later, ironically, to become a liberal hero because of his role in the Watergate hearings—was the most prominent opponent of the 1965 immigration bill. Auster recalled: “Senator Ervin argued that the bill did not eliminate discrim¬ination, as its sponsors claimed, but only exchanged some types of discrimination for others.” In Chapter One of Path To National Suicide, Auster quotes Ervin’s epochal challenge to Secretary of State Dean Rusk:
Mr. Secretary…you take the English-speaking people, they gave us our language, they gave us our common law, they gave us a large part of our political philosophy….The reason I say this bill is discriminatory against those people is because it puts them on exactly the same plane as the people of Ethiopia are put, where the people of Ethiopia have the same right to come to the United States under this bill as the people from England, the people of France, the people of Germany, the people of Holland…

I don’t know of any contributions that Ethiopia has made to the making of America. The point I am making is, we discriminate every day in every phase of life, we make discriminations in law, we make them in our personal actions, we discriminate in our opinions…we discriminate by the girls we marry, choose one and object to the choice of another, or they object to us.

The only possible charge of discrimination in the McCarran-Walter Act is that it discriminates in favor of the people who made the greatest contribution to America, and this bill puts them on the same plane as everybody else on earth.”

Finally: I do not think you could draft an immigration bill in which you do not discriminate. I think discrimination is ordinarily the exercise of intelligence to make conscious choices…I think there is a rational basis and a reasonable basis to give a preference to Holland over Afghanistan, and I hope I am not entertaining a very iniquitous thought when I entertain that honest opinion.
[Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration, Hearings on Immigration Reform Act of 1965, 2/10/65 to 3/11/65., P. 66]
Auster showed how opponents refuted the Immigration Act supporters’ claims that it would increase annual legal immigration by only “8,000” or “60,000”—whereas it actually allowed for potentially unlimited immigration:
[O]pposition witness, Myra C. Hacker of the New Jersey Coalition…. pointed out that the bill would not only increase the number of immigrants under the quota by taking places away from countries that were not using their quota and giving them to others, but that further increases in nonquota immigration would lead to an actual increase of 125,000 over the then current total of 275,000, making a total of 400,000. “However,” she added “the bill offers such broad discretionary powers to the Attorney General that the overall yearly number could well rise to a half million or more. . . . At the very least, the hidden mathematics of the bill should be made clear to the public.”
Auster noted that the bill’s supporters (most notoriously, floor manager Sen. Ted Kennedy) kept from the public the role that the bill would give to “chain migration,” making it in effect a Third World Mass Immigration Act.
Auster’s were powerful words in 1992. They are even more powerful now, in a public culture where speaking honestly about race, or merely in support of America, increasingly results in a professional death sentence.

In Huddled Clichés, Auster demolished one immigration myth after another as factually false (the economic value of mass Third World immigration), vacuous, or emotional nonsense (“we are a nation of immigrants”). But he also wrote:
Even if all of those [romantic Open Borders] assertions were true, they would be completely beside the point. If you learned that a glass of milk you were about to drink contained an ingredient that would make you seriously ill, the fact that the milk also contained lots of vitamins and minerals would not matter to you. Similarly, if current immigration is causing irreversible harm to our country, then the fact that immigration may also provide some benefits is irrelevant. It is the total impact of immigration that matters. Immigration proponents who stress the positive, transient effects of immigration while ignoring the negative, irreversible consequences are engaged in a dangerous con game….
When immigration advocates say that immigration “can’t be stopped,” what they really mean is that they don’t want to do anything to stop it….

Sure, there are many immigrants who do love America—for its fantastic wealth and opportunities, for its freedoms, for its government hand-outs, or for its emerging character as a multicultural society created in the image of the immigrants themselves. But how many immigrants love America as a historic nation and people that they want to join and help preserve?

In my experience, the immigrants who truly love America are deeply alarmed about the fact that excessive immigration is destroying the very things that they love about America. These immigrants support immigration restrictions….

Even if we accepted the premise that America’s whole identity depends on immigration, where would that leave us? If immigration continues as at present, the nation will continue to lose more and more of its historical character and political cohesion, which also means that we will “stop being America.” So, which manner of “ceasing to be America” do we prefer?…
Auster subsequently extended his criticisms of unassimilable foreigners to Moslems, whose immigration he called on the government to halt and reverse in his 2009 speech, “A Real Islam Policy for a Real America.”

Auster’s ability to reach audiences through the Main Stream Media was cut off, due to his insistence on remaining a conservative when outlets such as National Review, where he briefly published, submitted to the Left.

From 2002-2007, Auster was a frequent contributor to David Horowitz’ Front Page Magazine, where he penned 39 commissioned articles, including an important exposé on black-on-white rape. Then Horowitz abruptly excommunicated him. It turned out that a race hustler named David Mills,  a TV writer who called himself “Undercover Black Man” because he had black ancestry and white appearance,  had secretly sent Horowitz a poison pen letter, denouncing Auster as a “racist.” Instead of ignoring or condemning Mills, Horowitz panicked and folded like a cheap suit.
But Auster’s influence was also limited by his unsparing criticisms of allies on the paleo and racial realist Right. Some of them were friends and privately considered his attacks to be treachery. I dunno. I think Auster was a son of Socrates, and felt morally compelled to do what he did, even if it meant burning his bridges behind (or even before) him.

Larry Auster was extremely courageous—but a difficult, nay, impossible man. I speak from long experience. For years, he argued what I considered to be a mistaken position, that the Left believes in “egalitarianism,” “tolerance,” and “non-discrimination.” In fact, as I have pointed out for years, the Left actually believes in power—and is willing to accept the most extreme inequality, intolerance, and discrimination. But Auster proclaimed that, in denying that Leftists had any principles, I was rejecting political science.
Larry and I first met in person at a book release party for Michael Hart’s magnum opus, Understanding Human History, on a sweltering day in 2008, in one of those zillion-dollar, uptown Manhattan apartments that take up an entire floor in a former mansion.

At the party, I was conversing with a beautiful and gracious lady of a certain age, whose interest was education but whose failing memory made serious conversation futile. Larry was sitting nearby, so I recounted a previous virtual interaction I’d had with him.

Larry and I had corresponded via e-mail, but at one point he had demanded that I use the nasty little standard font, as opposed to the larger, more attractive font that I preferred. After that incident, I told the gentle lady, we went for a number of years without talking (or its e-equivalent).
“But he’s talking to you, now!” she piped up.

“No, he isn’t,” I responded, “he’s shoving raisin bread into his mouth to avoid talking!”

Later, we saw each other socially for a year or so, as members of a New York Dissident Right dinner club. But neither of us were clubbable and both dropped out. Thereafter, we were reduced to occasionally responding to each other’s blog items.

His blog about my experience during 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, a catastrophe for my beachfront Rockaway community, was vintage Auster. On the one hand, he was kind enough to try to call to see what had happened to me. But then he depicted me as callous because I did not contact anyone to say I was alive. Never mind that I had no telephone, Internet service, or even electricity! I eventually had to travel to Brooklyn, buy a cell phone, and call Peter Brimelow from there.

As the end grew near, Auster and I clashed because he was even discussing his stools at his blog. That’s what happens when you don’t have a wife with whom to share such joys.

A few weeks before Auster died, a publisher showed interest in the huge manuscript on immigration that he had written during the 1990s. He was trying to cut it down by 70 percent, to a 250-page book, when he died. His friends then sought to get the book project done, but I haven’t heard anything about it since. Perhaps this will give them a push.

As time ran out on Auster, he blogged so heroically that I thought he might be in remission. Thus I held back on publishing a humorous blog about going with Lubavitcher Chassidim in a “Mitzvah tank” for an intervention, to bring him back to the Tribe.

Alas, my chief advisor knew better.

In 2010, I wrote that Larry Auster was an  intellectual slugger who swung for the fences every time at bat. He struck out a lot, but that was the price for all those dingers.

immigration law enforcement

Our immigration laws are intended to safeguard the American people from dangerous foreign nationals entering the country and to protect American workers from unfair competition for jobs here at home. As TSC readers are only too well aware, an unholy alliance of Left activists has long seen the masses of immigrants from around the world as recruits against the American middle class and our traditional political order, while corporate businesses want a steady supply of cheap labor. The election of Donald Trump poses a threat to these interests for the first time in generations.

After the new administration issued an Executive Order temporarily freezing the issuance of visas to certain previously designated terror-risk nations, several states went to court seeking a temporary restraining order to block the implementation of these sensible proposals. But as Dale L. Wilcox, executive director of the Immigration Reform Law Institute, points out, “More than a hundred years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court stated, ‘The right to exclude or to expel aliens, or any class of aliens, absolutely or upon certain conditions, in war or in peace, is an inherent and inalienable right of every sovereign nation.’” The President’s authority is found in 8 U.S. Code, Section 1182(f), which clearly states:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
The Trump Administration has requested an additional $6.6 billion spread across twelve appropriation bills to fund the hiring of 10,000 additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and 5,000 new Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) has promised to prevent the increases in funding for enhanced border security and interior enforcement. Public opposition is being orchestrated by organizations associated with far-Left Democratic funders, led by international currency manipulator George Soros (cf. Fredreka Schouten, “George Soros-aligned group weighs funding anti-Trump activists,” USA TODAY, March 20, 2017). And the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has launched what they call the “Freedom Cities” organizing initiative to increase the number of Sanctuary Cities trying to shield illegal aliens from federal immigration agents.

The campaign against enforcing our immigration laws has just begun. Citizens cannot rest upon last year’s election results. We are in the fight for America.

Black Baton Rouge Chief Administrative Officer Troy Bell Gets Caught Lying about Master's Degree on Resume



By A Texas Reader

New Baton Rouge Chief Administrative Officer Troy Bell lies about master's degree on resume

Update, 5:33 p.m.: Troy Bell has resigned. Click here to read more.

N.S.: On the one hand, it’s so easy for a black to get a graduate degree, including a doctorate, today, that you wonder why anyone would bother lying about it. Blacks can’t walk across a college campus without a motorcycle helmet on. Administrators stand on hills, and toss framed B.A.s, M.A.s, and Ph.D.s at every black face that passes by.

On the other hand, thanks to what Mickey Kaus calls “due diligence, diversity-style,” most blacks can blithlely lie about having college and post-graduate degrees, because they know that nobody will force them to prove it.

Brandon Judd, of the National Border Patrol Council, on Our John Kelly Problem (DHS)

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

I thank the old buddy who sent this along.

I wish we were talking about the fictional “John Kelly,” as played by David Caruso, on NYPD Blue, who was one of the greatest dramatic characters in TV history, but alas, this John Kelly is all too real.

BRANDON JUDD (President, 18,000-member National Border Patrol Council) on JOHN KELLY, (Secretary, Department of Homeland Security)

Transcript from Breitbart News Daily (audio). At the link below, scroll down to April 18, 2017, Track #6. Begin listening at 5m55s for the exchange below:

JUDD: “President Trump mentioned our endorsement of him in every single major political rally that he had. He mentioned this after he was president at CPAC, our endorsement. So we’re begging him to drain the swamp within the CBP [Customs and Border Protection]. You’re talking about the murkiest swamp in the entire federal government. And it’s just getting murkier as we continue to promote people from the last administration… And that’s what leads me to scratch my head about Secretary [John] Kelly.”

“We’re talking about a very distinguished general… Yet now that he’s the secretary of DHS, all he does is praises Jeh Johnson, the former secretary who we know did not enforce any of the laws, and brought all these problems about, and he continues to praise Jeh Johnson and he continues to promote people that were under the Jeh Johnson regime. And that just doesn’t make any sense. So, yeah, the swamp has to be drained within the CBP.” (7:01)

The Cuba Gooding Jr. Affair

[“Lester Holt and NBC News Successfully Sabotaged Bill O’Reilly and Fox News.”]

By Jerry PDX
Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 3:35:00 P.M. EDT

I can't recall any black liberals being hounded out of their jobs for sexual harassment, there was, of course, Clarence Thomas, but he wasn't liberal and considered an Uncle Tom by many blacks, plus he didn't lose his job.

Black men, in general, practice a more aggressive form of sexual harassment than white men do, especially toward white women, but that doesn't fit the liberal narrative, so it gets ignored or brushed under the carpet.

It doesn't help that many white women are reluctant to be outraged when black men sexually harass them. A recent example is Cuba Gooding Jr. lifting up Sarah Paulson's skirt onstage. She just laughed it off.

If it had been a white man, I doubt she would have done that. It was clear that Gooding was saying to the white world: Look what I can do to a white woman in public!

There was some hoopla over the incident but it lost steam pretty quickly, and there have been no calls to boycott Gooding's movies or blacklist him from Hollywood. Only white men are punished that way.

At Opposing Views.

N.S.: Note that Sarah Paulson is an emphatically “out” lesbian. If a normal white man did to her what Cuba Gooding Jr. did, she might well have called the police, and demanded he be arrested for what nowadays passes for “sexual assault.”

Witness to Fresno Nation of Islam Mass Murder Thought She Would be Shot, too

By Reader-Researcher RC

At first, Edna Lopez thought the two loud bangs were car backfires. She looked around, then spotted a black man with a white hat, a black jacket – and a gun. Lopez told her daughter, Serina Carrillo, to get back in their car. There’s been a shooting, she

Fresno woman saw shooting spree suspect and thought she would be shot: ‘He looked angry’

Edna Lopez thought she, her daughter and grandson were going to get shot when the man with a gun approached their car near downtown Fresno Tuesday, April 18, 2017, as they were trying to flee. They were the lucky ones, among the few few [sic] ...

N.S.: This is ridiculous. Edna Lopez is a Hispanic woman. NOI mass murderer Kori Ali Muhammad was only targeting non-Hispanic white men. This is a Fresno Bee diversion tactic.

After the shooting was over, a news media picture showed a group of five bystanders watching the crime scene. Every one of them was a Hispanic. Thus, Muhammad showed great “care” in his murders and attempted murders.

There's a war going on out there.

A different war in Grand Rapids, as two more dead bodies (unidentified) found on a street and in a park today. Getting to be normal around here.

It used to be Benton Harbor was the main transshipment point for the distribution of cocaine for all of Michigan. I wonder if that has shifted to Grand Rapids now?

Grand Rapids Anonymous
Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 7:21:00 P.M. EDT

To Anonymous 1: A shifting, or more accurately, a sharing of illegal activity by blacks in Grand Rapids, is very true. Every city that participates in allowing blacks to live in their city limits eventually finds itself drowning in drug crime, filth, and violence. It creeps in slowly at first, but then one day you look around and your town is dead.

Last night, four blocks away from a murder I highlighted a few weeks ago (on Lincoln and Bridge-unsolved, but probably Mexican thugs), a car driving on Pine Street poured 20 bullets into a residence.

WOOD TV sent a reporter to the scene, who talked with some poor older white folks, who unfortunately still live in that jungle.

One man said that when he bought his house 20 years ago, he “could sit on the porch and hear crickets. Now, I wouldn't walk from here to there without carrying a gun. Last week I heard 5 bullets.”

But you don't hear those reports on the news. The owner of the house that was shot at, did not go on camera, but innocently wondered why anyone would target her house. I'd bet a week’s pay on my suspicions.

Meanwhile, one of the dead bodies found on Front Street was declared a murder. Another body, found in a city park, has yet to be autopsied for cause of death.

Ultra-liberal mayor Rosalynn Bliss, who continues the previous mayor’s destructive “pro-diversity” agenda, came out today with a comment on yesterday’s study, concerning “blacks being stopped by police at a greater rate than whites.”

The study found “certain streets on the West Side of town (my side) have a ratio of 2.5 to 1 of blacks being stopped more than whites.”

I salute the police for that. But Bliss said predictably, “I am disappointed in this study. We will use this information to improve ourselves and the way police stop our citizens.”

The humorous part of the report detailed certain areas where blacks were NOT stopped as much as whites: Lake Eastbrook Street and Sparks. Why? There aren't any blacks that live in that high income part of town... [chuckle].

But in MY section, yes, blacks get stopped—and I hope it continues at an even greater ratio. It’s necessary law enforcement in the New Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Two Murders in Grand Rapids, One Arrest

Update: Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 11:37:00 P.M. EDT

BLACK THUG ARRESTED for murder of 54-year-old white man in Grand Rapids.

I posted earlier in the week about two people that were found dead in one day. Police arrested a black thug in one of them, the shooting death of middle aged white man, Barry Cooper. It took place in one of the many hellish parts of town. Finally, after many unsolved criminal deaths, police have notched a successful arrest.

This white man, just as much as Mr. [Jamie] Urton, did not deserve to be shot and murdered by a black. Just as Mr. Urton, Barry Cooper wound up in the wrong place at the wrong time. [I.e., around blacks.] At least an arrest has been made fairly quickly.

[N.S.: The story GRA sent in has since been revised into these two, and possibly other stories: here and here.]

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police say they’ve made an arrest in the murder of a Grand Rapids man whose body was found on the city’s southwest side.

Officers Friday identified the victim as 54-year-old Barry Roger Cooper. Police found him in the 600 block of Letellier Street SW Wednesday afternoon. He was not breathing and had blood on his face, according to officers.

GRPD: Man found dead on SW side was shot
Police investigating death of man in Grand Rapids
The Kent County Medical Examiner later determined Cooper died from a gunshot wound.

It’s unclear if Cooper knew his alleged [sic] killer.
[Since Cooper was murdered, the issue is whether he knew his real, not his “alleged” killer.]

Derin Michael Roy was arrested Thursday on one charge of felony homicide in connection to the shooting death of Cooper, according to Kent County jail records. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Saturday.

GRA: More of the same black-on-white violence that is exploding in Grand Rapids and around the country.


I have invested heavily in tuna fish. How heavily? I was down to a mere 34 cans, and in a panic the other day.

This didn’t become a big issue until a couple of weeks ago. I found two cans sitting on the kitchen counter, looking like a grizzly bear had broken into the house, and crushed and squeezed the life and fish meat out of those cans. The lid was crushed into the middle. The sides had what looked like paw and nail marks.

They were empty, sort of.

Veteran crime reporter that I am, I hunted down the story.

It seems the gut of a certain 17-year-old, who shall remained otherwise unidentified, had started growling during the night, and he responded by attacking the tuna fish cans with a big, ailing, old, right-handed can opener. You know, the kind with shiny, black rubber handles?

The 17-year-old, like yours truly, is a southpaw.

I’ve been using right-handed can openers for … ever. So, I showed him how to work one. Truth be told, that can opener’s been on its last legs for years.

To make a short story long, the kid has discovered tuna fish salad.

I’ve of course occasionally made it, and forced it on him over the years, but he suddenly has an insane passion for it, almost as bad as the aliens and canned cat food in the picture, District 9.

He has since mastered the can opener, but you how 17-year-olds eat.

I was down to 34 cans (solid white and chunk light), or so I thought, and I went to the supermarket formerly known as Waldbaum’s, and picked up 11 cans one day, and 13 the next—Starkist chunk light, at .99 a can. (Starkist’s has apparently been running campaigns, now for solid white, now for chunk light, for weeks.) Then I found a forgotten cache of 20 cans of Starkist chunk light in a kitchen cabinet—the kind that are wrapped in plastic as four packs? They look very nice, but they’re still just chunk light. I think they went for $3.99 for each four-pack.

So, that got me back up to 78, a career high. But that was Wednesday. Today, it’s Sunday, and my Tuna stocks are down to 71, and falling like a rock. And it’s not just the 17-year-old—Tuna Madness has hit The Boss, too!

Please hit the “donate” button at the top, and make a generous donation, so that I may feed the tuna monsters!

I thank you, and your posterity will, too!

TCM is Showing Jose Ferrer in The Great Man Tonight at 8, Followed by Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis Sweet Smell of Success!



By David in TN
Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 11:15:00 P.M. EDT

Speaking of movies, on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET, TCM is showing The Great Man (1956). It's about a 50's radio personality who dies suddenly and a PR flack played by Jose Ferrer is supposed to organize an on-air tribute.

Ferrer discovers the deceased, while beloved by the public, is despised by those who really knew him.

Have you ever seen it? It's a favorite of mine, don't think TCM has shown it before.

At 10 pm, TCM runs Sweet Smell of Success. It must be 50's New York City night.

N.S.: There was a brief rash of cynical, PR man pictures between 1954 and 1957: Bogey in The Barefoot Contessa (1954); his last, The Harder They Fall (1956); The Great Man (1956); and Sweet Smell of Success (1957).

I saw Contessa over 40 years ago, on CBS’ The Late Show, but if memory serves, the titular character has just died, and Bogey the PR man, tells about her legend. It was an amazing picture, because it starred Ava Garner, but wove its story out of the parallel legends of Rita Hayworth, dancing barefoot as little Margarita Cansino, and Garner herself, both of whom were still very much alive. And screenwriter-director Joseph Mankiewicz was the supreme storyteller of show people.

The Harder They Fall has Bogey as a PR man and sometime sportswriter who’s hired to turn a big nothing from South America into a heavyweight championship contender. A bunch of ham-and-eggers are paid off to take dives early, so the nothing can become a contender. It was inspired by the career of Argentinian Luis Firpo, “The Wild Bull of the Pampas.”
It sounds like The Great Man may have been inspired by an incident, in which a wildly popular children’s show host, “Uncle Bob,” was accidentally caught on a hot mic, saying how much he hated kids.

My mom vividly recounted this story to me when I was a wee lad. However, it apparently, is a very popular urban legend (with the bad guy “Uncle Don”). However, I am convinced that that urban legend inspired at lead one classic anti-anti-Communist movie, Elia Kazan’s A Face in the Crowd (1957), starring a brilliant, young, Andy Griffith. The same legend may also have inspired The Great Man.


Sweet Smell of Success was another anti-anti-Communist picture, by Alexander Mackendrick, with Burt Lancaster as a vicious, fascist gossip columnist. It was a hit job on anti-Communist gossip columnist Walter Winchell, with Tony Curtis as the columnist's young henchman.

In Success, Lancaster gave his “fascist” performance for the first time, which he would repeat in Run Silent, Run Deep (1958) and Seven Days in May (1964).
