Sweden Shaken by Crisis of Violence

Featured image The Financial Times headlines: “The violent gang crisis shaking Sweden.” Spoiler alert: it all has to do with immigration. Sweden has suffered an extraordinary spate of violence in recent months, particularly in Uppsala and its neighbour to the south, capital Stockholm. At its worst in September and October, barely a day went by without a shooting, bombing or hand grenade attack — sometimes several. The Nordic country has gone from »


Featured image You know, one of the reasons why our economy is growing is because of you and many others. Why? Because we welcome immigrants. We look to – the reason – look, think about it – why is China stalling so badly economically? Why is Japan having trouble? Why is Russia? Why is India? Because they’re xenophobic. They don’t want immigrants. That was Joe Biden at a May 1 fundraiser. White »

From Munich in 1972 to America in 2024

Featured image   Christopher Scalia recently tweeted side-by-side photos of a masked pro-Hamas protester and a masked terrorist captioned “Manhattan 2024 meets Munich 1972,” a reference some readers might not recognize. On September 5, 1972, at the Olympics in Munich, Palestinian terrorists of the Black September faction forced their way into the quarters of the Israeli team. The terrorists shot dead and castrated weightlifter Yossef Romano, a mutilation not revealed until 2015. The carnage continued »

The Hoop and the Harm

Featured image Iowa basketball star Caitlin Clark, who drains three-pointers with the ease of Stephen Curry, has earned an estimated $3.1 million in NIL revenue from marketing her name, image and likeness. Purdue center Zach Edey also took his team to the final, but as he told reporters, “I obviously lost out on a lot of money this year.” The towering center hails from Toronto, and under a student visa NIL earnings »

French Students Terrorized by Jihadists [Updated]

Featured image In France, at least two teachers have been murdered by Muslim students, one of them beheaded. The French press reports that “death threats and threats of rape have become common among pupils.” Those threats are directed toward both teachers and fellow students. Now, students at dozens of French schools have been sent “threatening messages and beheading videos” by Islamic radicals. The story is hard to parse out, and more is, »

What the Court Did On Immigration [Updated]

Featured image A showdown is coming on the conflict between the Biden administration, which is determined to negate federal immigration law, and the State of Texas, which bears the brunt of Biden’s open border policy and is determined to vindicate our immigration laws and protect its own citizens. The case is pending in the Fifth Circuit, but a shot across the bow was fired yesterday in the Supreme Court. This is the »

Immigration and Affirmative Action

Featured image This is by David Leonhardt of the New York Times, in that paper’s daily email of yesterday. It is a good example of a liberal confronted by facts that refute his ideology, who can see truth off in the distance but can’t quite get there: Two economists — Ran Abramitzky of Stanford and Leah Boustan of Princeton — embarked on an ambitious project more than a decade ago. They wanted »

A New Plan for Voter Fraud

Featured image Sen. Alex Padilla, the California Democrat appointed to fill Kamala Harris’s Senate seat after she became vice president, wants Americans to be more certain to register to vote by linking it with free tax preparation. Padilla is leading a push for the U.S. Treasury Department to provide voter registration services at federally funded centers that prepare taxes for low- to moderate-income people, disabled people and people with limited English at »

Important Voting Problems

Featured image As John notes, blue collar workers or minorities voting for policies that actually help them is an important trend, and a complement to Steve’s post about the border problem. As he showed, “immigration” helped to flip California from red to blue in presidential elections, so Democrats seek to repeat that trend “across the entire country.” That’s why Biden has brought in millions, and that’s a problem. The possibility of becoming »

America’s Most Important Political Trend

Featured image This is a good complement to Steve’s post immediately below. Why did Democrats decide, seemingly in unison, that it would be a good idea to enable millions of illegal immigrants? Because they (or, in any event, their children) will be voters, and the Democrats assumed they could count on minority votes for many years to come. But that may have been a miscalculation: NEW 🧵: American politics is in the »

When George Met Joey

Featured image “Centuries of capitalism were held to have produced nothing of value,” Winston Smith discovers in George Orwell’s 1984. “One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Streets, inscriptions memorial stones, the names of streets – anything that might throw light on the past had been systematically altered.” In other words, “history has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the »


Featured image By a unanimous vote, the San Francisco supervisors have made Kelly Wong a member of the San Francisco Elections Commission. The Chinese national is the first non- U.S. citizen to hold the post, and under U.S. law she is not allowed to vote. Wong’s priority is to ensure that voter materials are translated in a way that people can understand, work she already performs as an “immigrant rights advocate” at »

Sweden Seeing the Reality of “Diversity”

Featured image This morning I stumbled across a Tweet linking to an Australian “60 Minutes” segment about the unassimilable migrants that are causing the crime rate and other social dysfunctions to soar in Sweden. Turns out the episode is seven years old, but since we don’t see Australia’s “60 Minutes” here (and our CBS “60 Minutes” won’t touch this subject with a ten meter pole), I doubt little has changed in the »

Blunt Force Border Policy

Featured image As John notes just below, police in Georgia have arrested Jose Antonio Ibarra, “not a U.S. citizen” and not a student at the University of Georgia, where nursing student Laken Riley, 22, was found dead from “blunt force trauma.” This is not an isolated incident. Consider California, the “sanctuary state” that protects criminal illegals from deportation. In 2019, a false-documented illegal from Mexico murdered El Dorado County deputy Brian Ishmael, »

Settler State

Featured image The Associated Press refers to GOP fears of “unauthorized migrants” voting in American elections. As readers should understand, “unauthorized” is code for “illegal,” and the latest replacement for “undocumented,” which needs some explanation. At some point, all illegals must use fake or stolen documents, so “false-documented” illegals is the more accurate designation. “Migrants” are people who come and go, working for a time then returning to place of origin. The »

Illegals are Already Voting

Featured image By some counts, the Biden Junta has allowed more than eight million foreign nationals to enter the United States illegally. Donald Trump and others contend that Democrats are “signing them up” to vote. As legal immigrants and legitimate citizens should know, illegals have been voting for a long time in California, the model Democrats now seek for the entire country. In 1996, illegals cast 784 votes against Republican Robert Dornan in a »

The “No Migrant Left Behind” Act

Featured image About the immigration bill that is apparently dead on arrival in both houses of Congress, some observations: Some conservatives are saying this is the best immigration control bill proposed in the last 30 years, with features that, if proposed in the past, most sensible people would have jumped to embrace and vote for. This is correct. It is still a no good rotten bill that should be scorned with extreme »
