Early on Thursday, January 23, a group of hundreds of Central Americans crossed the Suchiate river on the border between Guatemala and Mexico. But Mexican immigration officials and the National Guard were waiting for them.  Using tear gas, the Mexicans dispersed the crowd, captured the migrants and put an end to the invasion [Guardia Nacional frena intento de migrantes de avanzar a Tapachula (“National Guard Stops Attempt of Migrants to Advance to Tapachula”), Milenio, January 23, 2020. See also Mexican guardsmen break up migrant caravan along highway, by Peter Orsi, Associated Press, January 23, 2020; and the Milenio photo gallery here. It’s the new normal on Mexico’s southern border, thanks to Trump. And it seems to be working.

Below are two videos of the new Guardia Nacional, with shields and tear gas, shutting down the invasion.

A similar incident days earlier saw some a caravan of some 3,000 migrants stopped by Mexican security forces [Mexican troops block US-bound caravan travelers, AFP, January 18, 2019]. The caravanners were offered the chance to apply for work permits … in Mexico. Some 1,087 agreed and entered the country in Chiapas and Tabasco, but with no guarantee a permit would be granted [Más de mil migrantes ingresaron este fin de semana a México (“More than a Thousand Migrants entered Mexico This weekend”) Excelsior (from Notimex), January 19, 2020].

From 2017, New York Times columnist Charles Blow is practically lynched by some blonde Becky on TV who appears to touch his arm: Three years later, Charles explains his reaction: “I was thinking abt Emmett [Till] then. How dare u argue access to my body; they killed Emmett bc they thought he FLIRTED w/ a wht woman.” The future of public discourse will just be people taking things personally and a...

There has been much sparring over aliens attempting to enter, but refused entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Advocacy groups are up in arms and taking cases to Federal District Court to overturn admissions decisions by CBP Officers (CBPO). The Lying Press is engaging in what I call "shameless baby-waving," as if aliens had a right to enter. They also breathlessly trumpet that these ...

In 1868, President Andrew Johnson was impeached for violating the Tenure of Office Act that had been enacted by Congress over his veto in 1867. Defying the law, Johnson fired Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, without getting Senate approval, as the act required him to do.

In his 1956 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, John F. Kennedy made Edmund Ross one of the Senate's Profiles in Courage for his decisive and heroic vote not to convict and remove Johnson.

Repealed in 1887, the Tenure of Office Act was later declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

But while the act was the lethal instrument to be used in the political assassination of a president whom the Radical Republicans meant to terminate, Stanton's ouster was not the primary cause of their fury.

What truly enraged the Radical Republicans was Johnson's resolve to be more magnanimous toward the defeated South than they meant to be. Johnson had in mind an earlier end to the military occupation of the South and a more rapid return of the seceded states to the Union.

The story is told in the 1942 Hollywood film "Tennessee Johnson," starring Van Heflin, which has since gone down the memory hole along with Woodrow Wilson's White House favorite, "Birth of a Nation."

Earlier, by Steve Sailer: "A Pile Of White Dudes"—The Growth of Racist Headlines Hate President Donald Trump all you want, but our corporate media is going overboard in normalizing hatred of white males (and by extension, white females).

Sunday’s New York Times front-paged a curious story that demonstrates an ideological flare-up between different leftist beliefs. On one side was the traditional sob story approach toward illegal aliens, that they are suffering world citizens who should be rescued by too-rich, too-white America. The newer, more controversial viewpoint is that only the victims or actual tribal members should be allow...

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants his state to impose mandatory e-Verify, but there’s  a major obstacle to his goal: Republican Senate President Bill Galvano. Galvano opposes e-Verify because it allegedly hurts business. “I don’t support having the requirement that everyone (use) E-Verify. It’s putting an additional additional responsibility on non-government officials,” he said last month...

After talking about ending birthright citizenship but not actually doing much, President Trump is attacking its open flank. Trump must campaign on the issue and force Democrats on the record in favor of debasing American citizenship and diluting its value. Which, of course, they are. For immigration patriots, there’s nothing defensible about the U.S. Government’s (constitutionally not required) pol...

Is the Trump impeachment a Jewish coup? It’s a dangerous question even to ask. The Christian news outlet  TruNews was labeled an anti-Semitic conspiracy-theory website and banned by a Jewish-dominated company—YouTube—for saying so. [2 Jewish Congress members want White House to shun news outlet that called Trump impeachment effort ‘Jew Coup’, Jewish Telegraphic Agency, December 10, 2019] (Subsequently, TruNews has been deplatformed by PayPal for asserting that Jeffrey Epstein was running a Mossad honeypot operation designed to blackmail leading U.S. political figures).

But undeniably, Jews have taken very prominent, very public roles in impeachment. Most prominent are the two congressmen who conducted the House hearings: Adam Schiff, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, and Jerry Nadler, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee. Both Schiff and Nadler were named as prosecutors in the Senate trial, with Schiff designated as lead prosecutor.

Both of the Democrats’ counsels at the House hearings were Jews: Norm Eisen for the Judiciary Committee and Daniel Goldman for the Intelligence Committee. Several of the most prominent witnesses called by the Democrats were also Jews, including Alexander Vindman and Gordon Sondland.

Strikingly, all three of the legal scholars called by Nadler’s committee—Noah Feldman of Harvard, Michael Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina, and Pamela Karlan of Stanford University—were Jews, with a strong Jewish identity. [The Tell: Three of the impeachment witness lawyers were Jewish, and it matters, By Ron Kampeas, Jewish Telegraphic Agency,  December 6, 2019]   Gerhardt is a Fellow at the Katz Center for Advanced Jewish Studies, University of Pennsylvania and has given several lectures on Judaism the law (e.g., “Jewish Lives and the American Constitution: Selected Stories,” Bar Ilan University Law School). Karlan is a self-described example of "snarky, bisexual, Jewish women," and Feldman is Director of the Julis-Rabinowitz Program on Jewish and Israeli Law at Harvard.

In effect, impeachment is a project of the numerically-dominant Jewish Democrat-voting Left, with the Jewish counsels for the Democrats questioning Jewish witnesses in House committees headed by Jewish representatives, and covered with breathless enthusiasm by Jewish-owned media outlets like MSNBC, CNN, and The New York Times.

Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg is the first openly homosexual man ever to run to be President of the United States. He’s even married to junior high school teacher Chasten Glezman (who, interestingly has taken Buttigieg’s surname [Pete Buttigieg’s Husband Chasten Has an Incredible Backstory, By Emma Dibdin, O: The Oprah Magazine, July 31, 2019]). The Mainstream Media can hardly contain its delight at the fact that Buttigieg, who is only 37, is doing so well: He is one of the “Top 4” contenders for the Democratic nomination [Democratic debates: Snoozefest has top 4 running in place as other 6 feebly jab, By Melissa Schultz & Aaron Fels, New York Post, November 21, 2019]. It almost seems impolite to point out that gays, like women, are systematically more prone to certain personality traits that, while obviously not disqualifying, are problematic in political leaders.

Not only is Buttigieg gay, but he is a “gay Christian.” This allows him to try to “square the circle” for more conservative potential voters: Gay? Yes. But also a traditionalist Christian. Raised Roman Catholic, he became an Anglican while studying at Oxford University [Pete Buttigieg: Everything you need to know about the 2020 presidential candidate, By Nataly Pak et al.,  ABC News, September 13, 2019].

Health hysteria goes viral. There are screaming headlines all over.

So what is the body count here? Twenty-six as I write this; so far as I can gather, all of them in China, all or most in or near the central city of Wuhan.

Twenty-six dead? In a nation of 1.4 billion? It's too bad for the loved ones of those twenty-six, of course. Send not to know For whom the bell tolls. There but for the grace of God, … and so on. Proper sympathy and respect. But … twenty-six? In Communist China? Prison guards in Tibet probably clubbed twenty-six Buddhist nuns to death over the same span of time.

So what accounts for all the hysteria? A number of things.
