Thought for the day

As the President of the VDARE Foundation, I work alongside my husband, Editor of, Peter Brimelow, to defeat the post-1964 Immigration Act disaster that has set America on a course of destruction. For us it is not a job but a mission. VDARE is an institution designed and built to fight for and defend the Historic American Nation.

Our work in building this institution contradicts the defeatist murmuring of many we otherwise respect, that “conservatives are no good at community organizing,” or, as a prominent foundation executive said in a panel at the recent Philadelphia Society meeting, “We don’t think institutionally.”

That has never been true.

In fact, the creation of VDARE and other sympathetic institutions, is really the second time around.

The first time around, patriotic, God-fearing American people created the nation’s schools, churches, media, political structure, military, and many of our innumerable charities. If we failed to think with regard to institutions, it was a failure to understand the threat of those who would turn the very institutions built on our labor and contributions, against us, following John O’Sullivan’s “First Law” (“Any institution that is not explicitly right wing will become left wing over time,”). American institutions have been hijacked.

Almost all universities are now simply mechanisms for the repression of those who created them. Churches stand by as debauchery and outright evil destroy their flocks. As for the media, as the late M. Stanton Evans liked to say, their idea of covering conservatives was to do it with a pillow; until they stopped moving. The government, the “intelligence community” as they seem to call it these days, and even the military are ever more subversively complicit as anti-white progressive Wokeism is enforced as policy.

Kevin McCarthy is acting like he's grown a pair—although acting may be the operative word:

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday called for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the migrant crisis at the southern border – or potentially face an impeachment inquiry when Republicans take control of the House next year. 

His actions have produced the great wave of illegal immigration in recorded history," McCarthy said at a press conference in El Paso, Texas during a tour of the southern border. "This is why today I am calling on the secretary to resign."

"He cannot and must not remain in that position," he said. "If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action and every failure to determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry."

McCarthy said that he had spoken to Reps. Jim Jordan and James Comer, the ranking Republicans of the Judiciary and Oversight Committees, and said they have his complete support to investigate the "collapse" of the border.

Last month I posted about the egregious cancellation of tenured professor Bryan J. Pesta, who was fired by Cleveland State U. in effect for coauthoring a landmark scientific article on racial admixture and IQ in 2019. (I put considerable effort into a Taki’s Magazine column explicating in less daunting prose a 2021 study that replicated Pesta’s 2019 findings on the even more impressive ABCD database.)

The relationship between the race gap in IQ and DNA has been quite possibly the single most contentious issue in the human sciences since Arthur Jensen’s 1969 Harvard Education Review article. Pesta’s career was targeted for destruction for his role in publishing what might eventually go down in history as the single biggest step forward toward resolving this great debate between scientific titans such as Jensen, Richard Herrnstein, and Charles Murray vs. Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Lewontin, Christopher Jencks, and James Flynn.

Charles Murray and myself have been trying to alert academics that Pesta’s case shows that their ancient right of tenure is no longer secure. As Beria liked to tell Stalin about his stewardship of the NKVD, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”

Havoc ensued shortly after the Tesla CEO acquired the popular social media company earlier this month. Thousands of staff members across Twitter’s global team have since been fired, many without notice. Unfortunately, some staff members are feeling the brunt of Musk’s chaotic acquisition, like Twitter staff in Ghana, who were let go the same day the company opened its headquarters in Accra. As NewsOne previously reported, it’s still unclear as to whether Musk offered severance pay to those impacted in Africa, which is quite odd, given that termination pay was offered to laid-off Twitter employees in India and other team members around the world.

In a scathing report published by the New York Times on Nov. 11, several Twitter executives warned Musk to carefully assess his layoff plan for “diversity and inclusion issues,” so that the cuts would not disproportionately impact workers of color. But the South African businessman and his team “brushed aside the suggestion,” the report noted.

Following the move, laid-off Twitter workers in Ghana said they felt “insulted,” “discriminated against” and “disrespected” by the way they were abruptly let go by the company. Now, some staff members are seeking legal guidance from employment lawyers in Africa to assess whether Musk unlawfully terminated their contracts.

Previously: Multiple Bombings Across Israel! Many Dead!

This is what was happening in the days and hours before these very convenient bombings in Israel: the Jews were demanding that the US prepare for war with Iran.

It’s just a coincidence, goy.


Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi has called on the United States to develop new “operational plans” to take on the Iranian military, urging top US defense and intelligence officials to “accelerate” joint efforts to counter the Islamic Republic.

Kochavi held a series of meetings with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and CIA Director William Burns, the IDF said in a press release on Tuesday, noting that he discussed the “Iranian threat” with each of the officials he had spoken with since landing in the US on Sunday morning.

“We are at a critical point in time which requires the acceleration of the operational plans and the cooperation against Iran and its proxies in the region,” Kochavi said after the meetings. “On the one hand, Iran is under many economic, military and internal pressures, and on the other hand continues to advance the nuclear project.”

Authoritarian State: Area 51 Blogger Speaks Out After His Home Is Raided By Feds

The owner of a significant Area 51 website says that the Feds raided his home and that anyone could be next.

Joerg Arnu owns a website called, which is themed around the mysterious Area 51 site. He told Fox News Digital on Saturday about his experience with the federal agents and stated:

"What I learned is truly incredible and, in my opinion, a much bigger story than the raid of my homes. What was done to my girlfriend and me, two unarmed, innocent, cooperating senior citizens, is totally within the law. Truly incredible!"

Arnu says that 15 to 20 federal agents visited his home by raiding those homes. He and his girlfriend own two homes in the Nevada area, and he says that agents busted through the doors before pulling the couple outside and detaining them while the homes were searched. He says that the agents treated him and his girlfriend very disrespectfully.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has sent the state’s national guard to protect the southern border.

This is technically supposed to be the job of the federal government, but Biden simply refuses to do it.

The people of Texas are lucky that Abbott is willing to step up to the plate.

Townhall reports:

Texas National Guard Takes ‘Unprecedented’ Steps to Protect Border

Days after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared an invasion over surging illegal immigration numbers, the Texas National Guard is deploying tank-like armored vehicles along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The National Hockey League has slapped down a fan over their response to a tweet about a hockey tournament made up entirely of transgender and non-binary players.

The league tweeted pictures from a 'Team Trans Draft' tournament in Wisconsin

Despite the NHL stating the tournament was 'comprised entirely of transgender and nonbinary players', one user responded: 'So, men playing on a woman's [sic] team?'

A reply from the NHL Twitter account said: 'Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real.'

The response prompted thousands of responses from people both in support of, and against, the NHL's position. The tweet comes amid fierce ongoing discussion about the participation of trans athletes in sport.

The tournament was held through Saturday and Sunday and was hosted by Team Trans Ice Hockey, which describes itself as 'the first-ever ice hockey team made up entirely of transgender athletes'.

A Facebook page said six teams competed in the inaugural event. Some conservative commentators mocked the NHL for promoting the event and its follow-up tweet.

Don Surber wrote a great post this week that included this simple, yet illuminating, line.

What the heck am I, Don Surber, getting in this relationship? I vote Republican and they act against my political interest.

Don was onto something.

Back in 2021, after the shocking election results from November when Democrats who were soundly defeated on Election Day, locked the doors on the counting rooms and continued to drive truckloads of mysterious ballots into the counting centers. Only when they took the lead in each battleground state did they call the election for basement dummy Joe Biden.

The GOP fled the scene.

Then on January 6, 2021, when a million conservative voters joined President Donald Trump at the Ellipse in Washington DC, the GOP skipped town again.

Ronna McDaniel and the GOP elites went to their winter retreat at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island in Florida.

Elon Musk has mostly championed free speech since taking over Twitter. There are a still a number of conservatives who remain banned, including The Gateway Pundit, while he has ignored leftists supporting violence on the platform.

The case of Antifa ‘journalist” Vishal Singh is a particularly acute example. Independent journalist Andy Ngo documented multiple cases of Singh celebrating and calling for violent actions on Twitter.  His latest post called for deadly violence against Republicans and Libs of Tiktok:

Singh previously celebrated assaults on actual journalists and demanded assaults against law enforcement.  Examples below:

No one should find Singh’s advocacy surprising. Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization which has carried out multiple assaults on right-wing groups, law enforcement, and journalists for several years.  There were even members of the group at the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th, 2021.

The financial collapse of multibillion-dollar FTX is sending waves through the cryptocurrency industry.  As the list of people responsible grows, one individual on the list should be the former CEO’s father, Joe Bankman. 

FTX is now in bankruptcy and its top 50 creditors alone are owed over $3 billion from the entity.  We’ve reported on the peculiar circumstances surrounding these creditors and the court’s efforts to date to hide the identities of these creditors.

As the list of creditors increases, there is much blame to throw around.  One individual whose name should be on the list is Joe Bankman, the father of the former CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried.

In an interview online, Joe Bankman, the father of FTX’s CEO, brags about being the legal mastermind of sorts behind FTX.

The Biden regime on Tuesday announced they're sending another $4.5 billion in US aid to Ukraine, despite President Zelensky attempting to con America and NATO into WW3 last week by bombing Poland and blaming Russia for the strike.


The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and in coordination with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Department of State, is providing an additional $4.5 billion in direct budgetary support to the Government of Ukraine. The funding, which will help alleviate the acute budget deficit caused by Putin’s brutal war of aggression, was made possible with generous bipartisan support from Congress. The Government of Ukraine will receive the funding in two tranches before the end of 2022.

[...] Once these additional funds are fully disbursed, the U.S. government will have provided $13 billion in direct budgetary support to the Government of Ukraine.

Webmaster addition: Yep! Zelensky is using Hunter Biden's dealing in Ukraine to blackmail Joe Biden!

Something quite amazing has just happened.  Following the terrorist attack in Ankara which killed 34 people and injured another 125, Turkish authorities first declared that they will not accept US condolences.  Then the Turks launched a military operation against “Kurdish terrorists in northern Syria“.  Turkey then claimed to have neutralized 184 terrorists.

What is not mentioned in those articles is that the target of the Turkish strike was the US-run center for the training and education of PKK militants in Rojava.  There are rumors that the Turks gave the US enough warning time to evacuate most of its personnel.

Does that sound familiar?

If it does, it is because it is very similar to what the Iranians did when they hit US bases in Iraq following the murder of General Solemani in a US drone strike.

If the above is true, and rumors are very much “if” and cannot be considered as proven fact, then that means that a NATO member state (Turkey) just attacked a US base and, like Iran, got away with it: the “The Finest Fighting Force in the History of the World” just got whacked hard and humiliated for a second time and could do absolutely nothing to defend itself or even save face.

RED ALERT: New WHO pandemic treaty in final stages, would overrule the US Constitution and unleash medical dictatorship, warns Dr. Francis Boyle

Today we bring you a truly bombshell interview and critical story about the WHO’s new pandemic treaty which is specifically written to overrule the United States Constitution and all domestic laws in every nation, worldwide. How do we know this? Because treaty expert Dr. Francis Boyle studied the proposed treaty language and lays it all out in today’s hard-hitting interview (see below). He’s the author of the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, and an expert in reading and writing treaties. And today, he issues his strongest warning yet made public.

Dr. Boyle is the author of a recent book entitled, “Resisting Medical Tyranny,” and in today’s interview, he openly warns that this new WHO treaty — dubbed “WHO CA+” — is designed to unleash a global medical dictatorship that would overrule your local doctors, hospitals and clinics, forcing them to follow WHO directives on things like masks, quarantines, social distancing and economic lockdowns.

The public defenders for the suspect in the mass shooting at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub said in a Tuesday night court filing obtained by a New York Times reporter that their client is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns.

The big picture: The suspect, Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, is facing multiple murder and hate crime charges over the shooting at Club Q last weekend that killed five people, per Max D'Onofrio, a city spokesperson.

  • Aldrich was injured during the shooting but released from a local hospital and "booked into the El Paso County Jail," earlier on Tuesday, per the Denver Post.

What we're watching: Aldrich was due to make their first court appearance via video link from jail Wednesday, according to the Denver Post.

Jen Psaki

A federal judge ruled on Monday that former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki must comply with an investigation that seeks to uncover the federal government’s collusion with Big Tech to suppress Covid-related posts they deemed “misinformation.”

Writing for the Western District of Louisiana District Court, Judge Terry A. Doughty denied a request by Psaki to quash a subpoena seeking her deposition in a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. In his reasoning, Doughty said that “[p]reparing for and giving a deposition is part of the normal process for every person subpoenaed for a deposition” and that despite Psaki’s contention, it is “not an undue burden.”

Psaki’s request for the Louisiana court to “stay the deposition pending appeal” was also denied, with Doughty reasoning that Psaki and federal defendants did not make a “strong showing” for why their case would likely succeed. (A stay is when a court takes action to halt a judicial proceeding or the actions of a party.)

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy called on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign Tuesday afternoon after the speaker-elect led a GOP congressional delegation to tour the southern border.

“His actions have produced the greatest wave of illegal immigration in recorded history,” McCarthy said, issuing a seething indictment of the seemingly absent Homeland Security secretary engaged in a “dereliction of duty.”

According to an analysis of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data from the conservative Heritage Foundation, federal law enforcement has recorded more than 4 million apprehensions, “more than the previous four fiscal years combined.” October’s border arrests alone were the third highest in American history, with more than 230,000 arrests reported by CBP. Illicit substances continue to flood American communities nationwide after pouring through the open border. Cocaine seizures spiked 104 percent last month, and fentanyl seizures remained on the rise.
