Friday August 18 is the 430th birthday of Virginia Dare. Incredibly, her 350th birthday was celebrated by a speech from Democratic Party hero President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who also personally helped design the commemorative stamp. But on present form, it may seem that her statue won’t even be in Roanoke’s Elizabethan Gardens in on her 450th birthday in 2037—it will have been torn down by a Communist mob tacitly supported by Democrat politicians (probably related) and replaced with a statue of Malia Obama. VDARE.com’s message: stay the course. The Lost Colony ended in utter disaster, but Virginia Dare’s memory was sacred when America rose to rule the world.
VDARE.com played absolutely no part no role in last Saturday’s Unite The Right Rally in Charlottesville Va. None of our principals were invited to speak. None of us attended. We didn’t even publicize it beforehand.
But, needless to say, none of this made the least difference. We have still been cut off from PayPal with no explanation after paying its gouging commissions for processing donations for over ten years. We have still been cancelled out of our conference by the Cheyenne Mountain Lodge (which had to pay a stiff penalty to do it), cheered on by Alt-Left Communist fellow-travelers like Sen. Michael Bennet (D.-CO).
But there has been absolutely no outcry against the $PLC, Senator Sanders, the Democratic Party or above all against Hillary Clinton, whose demented refusal to accept her 2016 defeat obviously contributed to Hodgkinson’s mental imbalance.
As of 1 am August 18, “James Hodgkinson” yielded 21,700 results on Google News, “Floyd Corkins” 344 (!), and “James Alex Fields” (the Charlottesville driver, who had become famous only 5 days before) an incredible 126,000. This is conclusive proof, if it were needed, of MSM bias.
But it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. This is a witch hunt.
But there’s also Narrative Collapse. In the case of Charlottesville, James Alex Fields may well be acquitted despite the MSM effort to lynch him, like George Zimmerman or Darren Wilson. The Virginia ACLU has confirmed that the police failed to protect to Unite The Right demonstrators. (In fact, they forced them from the park in defiance of a federal judge’s ruling.) A former Virginia governor, Jim Gilmore has now called for an investigation. The Virginia State Police have repudiated Governor Terry McAuliffe’s demagogic claim that the Unite The Right protestors had arms caches. Video evidence is increasingly showing that the Communist AntiFa were indeed the aggressors. CBS Leftist Jake Tapper has complained, in apparent surprise, that the Communists assaulted his journalist colleagues.
Above all, President Trump, in his uncanny intuitive way, struck back decisively in his Tuesday press conference by calling out the violent Communist Alt Left, and the campaign against Confederate statues (“who’s next, Washington Jefferson? So foolish”). Significantly, polls now show massive public support for this last position, something impossible to guess from the MSM coverage (or the Congressional GOP panic).
Trump’s heretical position on immigration didn’t win him many friends among Republican leaders. But he made a deep connection with Republican voters. More than any other issue, Trump’s hard-line views on immigration and his vow to build “The Wall” carried him to the White House….Eighteen years after VDARE.com’s founding, 22 years after the publication of my book Alien Nation: Common Sense About America’s Immigration Disaster, 25 years after my National Review cover story from which it flowed, I view this revolution as a personal vindication.
By standard metrics, it’s easy to chalk up Trump’s presidency as a failure.
But on the issue that transformed his political persona and drove his presidential campaign — immigration — Trump has delivered more to his supporters than he’s often given credit for… his support among Republicans, although it has weakened somewhat, remains strong. Those most fiercely loyal to Trump are the voters who care most deeply about issues like immigration. Trump’s ability to deliver for them has kept them in the fold and propped up his presidency — at least, for now.

It’s true that this particular full court press features an extraordinary purge of the internet—and here I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, our donors who have rushed to give through our backup system, no doubt suspecting that it too may be taken down.
If Google and Apple are banning Gab, mainstream conservatives are crazy to think they are safe….
Daily Stormer is as racist and anti-Semitic as anything I’ve ever seen on the Internet. But they also had, prominently placed on the front of their site, a statement disclaiming violence and indicating that anyone threatening violence anywhere on their site would be banned. If being vile is grounds for not being able to speak, the Internet would be a much smaller place….
Conservatives, and more importantly, Republicans in Congress, need to speak up and put a stop to the censoring, speech-stifling madness of the Silicon Valley mafia. If we don’t stand up, even for speakers we loathe, the leftists will just increase their demands for censorship until they come to our own doorstep. If you think people who want to blow up Mount Rushmore and demolish the Jefferson Memorial are going to be happy just going after going after neo-Nazis, then I’ve got some land on the National Mall I’d love to sell you. I think there may be some prime-location building space there soon.[ "Is This Day The Internet Dies?" August 18, 2017]
Regions Caesar never knewBut it happened. And that’s something we must celebrate, and defend.
Thy posterity shall sway;
Where his eagles never flew,
None invincible as they
