Biden Leads With Immigration. But Is Left As Strong As It Looks?

President Joe Biden’s Installation, er, Inauguration is complete and the upcoming battle over Amnesty may decide whether the Historic American Nation can survive his term. President Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris are already receiving embarrassing, worshipful coverage from Regime Media, which will cheerlead the drive to push through immigration liberalization. Biden has already implemented several executive orders reversing some of Trump’s accomplishments. However, there are hopeful signs that the GOP will resist a mass Amnesty bill and the approaching “refugee” caravan will force the issue front-and-center at the very beginning of Biden’s term. By picking a fight on immigration, President Biden is ensuring that nationalists will set the tone for the American Right’s opposition to his Regime. We can only celebrate his hubris.

The hosannas and praise of “democracy” from the Regime Media on Wednesday were a sharp contrast to the non-existent crowds, heavy border security installations, and massive military presence that characterized the ceremony [President Biden’s inauguration goes off with no security issues, by Ben Fox, Colleen Long, and Michael Balsamo, WVTM13, January 20, 2020]. This, combined with the news that the military was screening the troops for political reliability, makes it hard to take rhetoric about “unity” and “healing” seriously [12 National Guard members removed from Biden inauguration, by James Laporta and Michael Balsamo, Associated Press, January 19, 2021].

When you're catching flak, you're over the target. When you're triggering threats of violence from the Biden crime family, you know you've hit the bull's-eye.

As the entrenched Obama-Biden syndicate that I chronicled in my 2009 book, "Culture of Corruption," officially returns to power in Washington, D.C., this week, it's worth calling attention to a telling little message from Hunter Biden's top business partner about yours truly. The Feb. 15, 2011 email was one of thousands stored on the abandoned laptop of Joe Biden's scandal-plagued son.

Heres' the backdrop: Over the past decade, I have reported extensively on Joe Biden's lifelong milking of his entrenched swamp career for the benefit of his family—including his promotion of government-subsidized Amtrak rail boondoggles. During his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, Biden fronted a $53 billion high-speed train initiative. He installed friends and family inside the agency while eliminating longtime fiscal watchdogs looking out for taxpayers.

In 2009, I spotlighted how veteran Amtrak inspector general Fred Weiderhold was abruptly "retired"—just as the government-subsidized rail service faced mounting complaints about its meddling in financial audits and probes. Weiderhold had blown the whistle on overzealous intrusion by the agency's Law Department into his investigations of $1.3 billion in rail stimulus money and exposed how Amtrak's legal counsel had usurped the watchdog's $5 million portion of federal stimulus dollars to hamstring his probes.

Donald Trump’s presidency finally comes to an end this week. He departs from office impeached a second time and banned from nearly every tech platform. The Mainstream Media calls him one of the worst presidents of all time. Never-Trump Republicans are thrilled at Trump’s departure and can’t wait to bring back the Paul Ryan status quo. Even some staunch immigration patriots such as Ann Coulter are sour on him. Trump certainly had his flaws and made serious mistakes, particularly on immigration. But compared to his predecessors and his political opponents, he was a breath of fresh air. He made real progress on immigration and dragged the GOP along with him. We should remember his missed opportunities, but it’s also important to note what Trump did right.

Trump promised a national populist challenge to Conservative Inc. orthodoxy. He pledged to limit immigration, enact trade policy to protect American industry, bring the troops home, and restore law and order. Some of these pledges he met. For instance, he managed to crush ISIS without starting any new wars. On the crucial issue of immigration, he made significant strides. Immigration overall was reduced in his presidential term. There was a year-over-year decline in the Immigrant Workforce Population for 15 straight months in Trump’s final leg in office, only broken by the start of the Biden Rush in December. The decline started several months before COVID and was an even steeper than during the 2008 recession. Overall, Trump reduced immigration by 49% during his tenure [Trump Cuts Legal Immigrants By Half And He’s Not Done Yet, by Stuart Anderson, Forbes, July 21, 2020].

He achieved this though administrative actions. The Leftist media complained Trump had built an “invisible wall” against legal immigration through stricter regulations and higher standards for entry [Trump Got His Wall, After All, by Rachel Morris, HuffPo, November 24, 2019]. These new standards led to record-high denial rates for H-1B visa applicants, forcing companies to provide more proof they needed foreign workers and boosting graduates of American universities. Trump further tried to limit immigration through the public charge rule. This rule prohibited immigrants who relied on government assistance or who were likely to need such aid from receiving green cards.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow called for a rethinking of Martin Luther King Day in 2015, arguing that MLK was a deeply flawed figure and an inappropriate role model for American whites. Now this is even more the case, since it appears the U.S. may be about to acquire yet a second Hate Whitey Day, in the form of President Kushner’s proposed Juneteenth, and the fact that the MLK Day symbolic appeasement project has manifestly failed.  We propose to repeat this call until We (so to speak) Overcome.

Recently Steve Sailer blogged about While Hollywood looked for perfect villains, they were hiding in plain sight, a January 15, 2021  WaPo piece by Ann Hornaday about the Deplorableness of the protesters who did the Mostly Peaceful Epiphany Protest at the Capitol

Ms. Hornaday’s thesis is that normal people (specifically white male Christians) are bad. Her case in point: the FBI’s investigation of Martin Luther King:

In fact, the White, male, Christian version of normal was precisely what J. Edgar Hoover was going for when he recruited for the FBI, the investigative agency he ran with an iron fist for nearly 50 years.…

Hornaday [Tweet her] says of the 1965-1974 FBI TV Series

I certainly don’t remember any episode where they wiretapped and bugged Martin Luther King Jr. to gather salacious material that would disrupt his movement, destroy his reputation and neutralize his power.

That real-life case is deconstructed with precision and graceful storytelling prowess in the documentary “MLK/FBI,” which begins streaming this weekend. In the film, director Sam Pollard examines Hoover’s megalomaniacal quest to defame and defang King, whom he perceived as an existential threat to the capitalist, conservative and — most of all — White social order the FBI was dedicated to preserving. …

Pollard also shrewdly demonstrates how Hoover burnished the reputation of his agency through movies and television, which occasionally valorized the FBI’s role in bringing groups like the Klan to justice, even as white-supremacist ideology continued to spread. In 1975, FBI Deputy Associate Director James Adams testified before the Senate that the bureau had three times as many “ghetto informants” as confidential sources within the Klan — as good an index as any of the agency’s priorities [Links in original].

What’s missing from Hornaday’s bashing of the FBI: the context that MLK was leading a movement which used mass illegal demonstrations ( the famous Selma Bridge March was in defiance of a court order) to provoke police into responding in ways the Main Stream Media could make look bad—you know, the sort of thing that would interest someone responsible for “intelligence and counterterrorism”, as above.

Also that King’s movement was staffed, led, and to an undefined extent controlled by Communists in turn controlled from Russia, most notably a man called Stanley Levison.

Martin Luther King was never himself a Communist—far from it. But the FBI's wiretapping of King was precipitated by his association with Stanley Levison, a man with reported ties to the Communist Party. Newly available documents reveal what the FBI actually knew—the vast extent of Levison's Party activities

[The FBI and Martin Luther King, by David J. Garrow, Atlantic, July/August 2002]

Finally, the “salacious material”—all of it true—included not only adultery at the level of actual orgies, but at least one reported rape. The embarrassing FBI records that were sealed by a judge for 50 years in 1977 will be released in five years.  (They’re not the kind of thing that could be declassified by Trump, although weirdly, some the most scandalous revelations of King’s conduct came out serendipitously when Trump released some JFK material in 2017.)

And as for the FBI’s “priorities”, the reason that the FBI needed more  “ghetto informants” than Klan undercover guys in 1975 was that by that point the Klan was mostly over but, in response at least partly to Civil Rights movement, as well as the Warren Court’s pro-criminal jurisprudence, black crime had exploded.

Now we see that explosion happening again, as the city-burning riots of the Sixties return.

Thinking about the memory of the man who laid the groundwork for that crime and these riots, we need to ask: why is this man’s statue still standing?

Time To Rethink Martin Luther King Day

By Peter Brimelow

First published here on MLK/Robert E. Lee day, 2015.

Happy Robert E. Lee Day! His January 19 birthday was once widely celebrated across the South (it still is mentionable in Alabama) but during the Second Reconstruction has been quietly suppressed to the point where even such a devoted son of the Confederacy as American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor was unaware, when I talked to him on Sunday night, that its local variant in his and Lee’s state of Virginia, Lee-Jackson Day, was supposed to be celebrated last Friday. (Not surprisingly—it seems to have been recently crudely scrubbed from Virginia’s webpage.)

But there’s a silver lining, sort of, in this tale of attempted historical lobotomy: It shows that public holidays come—and they go. Martin Luther King Day, rushed through Congress with Obamacare-style disregard of process in 1983, has been by now weighed in the balance for almost thirty years. It has inarguably (but unmentionably) been found wanting. It is time for it to go.

And in fact, I believe it will go, or at least be quietly suppressed like Robert E. Lee Day. The reasons:

  • MLK Day’s 2027 Problem

It is obvious to everyone that there is a reason King’s FBI files were sealed for fifty years back in 1977, and only the Main Stream Media’s typically relentless Politically Correct air cover prevented this flagrant maneuver from discrediting the Martin Luther King Day legislation in 1983.
