Hater's Ball Day 3

The political dissolution of the US is a question of when, not if. Ideally, the separation is an amicable one based on a mutual recognition of irreconcilable differences. Amicability may be a pipe dream, but a separation characterized by non-violence is not. Secession is an idea whose time has come. It is happening all over the world and it will happen here, too.

That confidence in the possibility of a bloodless separation was fortified by the weekend's experience. State security was out in force. As I headed to my car to leave the hotel at the state park today, I walked past a meeting of about 30 police being addressed by a commanding officer. He was praising the group for how smoothly the weekend had gone and how well they had comported themselves. Hearing it, I gave a "thanks for the great work this weekend!" as I past. In response came, so far as I could tell, appreciative acknowledgement from just about every one of them. 

These guys are sympathetic. If the Cloud People in the Imperial Capital are relying on the salt of the earth in flyover country to turn their guns on their fellow Dirt People, they're in for a rude awakening.  

Henry Wolf, Jared Taylor's right hand man, took some ingeniously unconventional measures to protect the privacy of the attendees. I obviously won't go into the specifics, but it's reassuring to see that level of competence in AmRen's administration. 

Another impressive operation is Identity Evropa. The group's methodical screening process, organizational structure, and tactical celerity makes it well placed for not just viability but continual growth in the future. For those interested in activism beyond the virtual world, they are the best game in town

Simon Roche of the Suidlanders viscerally communicated what is ultimately at stake for Europeans all over the world. The writing is on the wall. Why don't the Afrikaners get the hell out while they still can? Because at some point we have to stop running. Asked whether they would rather emigrate to Australia or pay the ultimate price defending the land their grandfather's grandfather's grandfather tamed, Roche emphatically answered with the latter. Blood and soil.

It's worth ruminating on that conviction. A life in which nothing is worth dying for is hardly a life worth living. No one lives forever. Achilles understood this. So should we.

I'm a family man and a homebody, but as I parted ways with Z-Man at the conference's closing, I was overcome with a sense of anticipation for the VDare event planned for this August. Spending a weekend conversing non-stop and without reservation about topics that matter with smart, thoughtful people is an intellectual experience unparalleled in The Current Year. It's a taste of what life could be like if we were able to hurl the stifling curse of political correctness into the abyss.

The Hater's Ball Day 2

The Derb is in good spirits. He seems to have just now discovered twitter despite having had an account for years. It's fun to watch.

As Z-Man noted, Richard Spencer is notably absent and a lot of (figurative) knives seem to be coming out for him. Just like the optimal approach to the JQ, I'm agnostic on Spencer's current status. A recurring theme that is hard to miss this year is that it's time to revisit the putative sagacity of the idea that dissidents should never punch to the right. When you're being stabbed in the back by the guy  on your right flank, sometimes the need to deliver a haymaker becomes unavoidable.

Speaking of the JQ, the results of the field study, at least up to this point, have been... inconclusive. There does exist a sizable contingent of Alt Jews out there, but they're skittish. On good information I've gathered their collective sense is that breaking ranks is as socially injurious to them as stepping off the leftist plantation is for blacks. Being an Uncle Isaac isn't easy.

Nicholas Fuentes delivered a masterful speech, and not just because he cited the Hispanic Heritage Survey's bottle of white pills. If our Occidental Renaissance is to occur, Gen Z is going to have to lead it. If we are fortunate, Fuentes will play a major part in that.

Fuentes was born in 1998. He's all of 20 years old. He left a strong impression of precocity today, especially the way he handled thinly-veiled mini homilies that were couched as questions during the question and answer session following his speech.

The boomers who tore into him spectacularly misread the situation on the ground. Jordan Peterson has one of the best-selling books in the world because he understands the challenges young men face. Fuentes does, too, and he has the added bonus of being part of that very cohort. People who are able to resonate with these young men are worth their weight in gold.

We need a Ron Paul of our own, someone who can do for identitarianism what the good doctor did for libertarianism. Fuentes has the capacity to be that person. It's indisputable after watching him today. I suspect he's smart enough to calibrate his presentation as time goes on. It's something he'll need to do. Making the transition from virtual personality to real world leader requires it.

In a moving presentation, Jared Taylor stated the obvious--we need to have more children. That alone is not sufficient, but it is necessary. He expressed regret at having only had two of his own, noting that while the transition from egalitarian to race realist was a transformative one, it paled in comparison to the transformation he experienced by becoming a father.

He also expressed regret in having not been told how wonderful it is to bring into the world people you love and people who love you. I could not agree more.

The Hater's Ball

Antifa vowed to shut the conference down and ensure it never returns to the great state of Tennessee. Said great state responded with an impressive show of force. We were greeted by a combined deployment of state police and TBI agents that likely numbered over fifty. The stencil-necked androgynes, in contrast, so far remain unseen. 

The conference is being held at a state park. There's a hard lesson in this for libertarian-leaning types. That lesson is that the private sector is not a guarantor of free speech. To the contrary, it's where the energy to shut down the free exchange of ideas emanates from. VDare has repeatedly tried--and failed--to hold conferences at private venues (here's to this August being different!). Without the constitutional obligation to protect freedom of expression, the private sector won't protect it--at least not if it's viewed to be unprofitable to do so.

There are some other hard lessons identitarians need to learn. I watched Z-Man forcefully communicate them to some people at the top of alt right organizations tonight. Those fourteen words become a lot more attainable if they heed his advice and his admonitions.

In The Way of Men, Jack Donovan opens with the assertion that the way of men is the way of the gang. There's a lot of truth in that. 

People in leadership positions are vetted, often formally and always informally. Trust is earned, not merely given because a person seems to have the right combination of carelessness and charisma. If a guy was a Rothbardian yesterday morning and was crying on Vice last night, he can't be put in charge of anything today. If a guy supported Hillary Clinton in the general election more enthusiastically than Bernie Sanders did, he shouldn't be organizing an event putatively intended to "unite the right" in Charlottesville. If he does organize it, don't show up.

I've been in the dissident right for a long time. After a decade of spinning wheels, things suddenly started to move in 2015 and 2016. The Trump Train tore out of the station. It finally felt like we were getting somewhere. But that train doesn't have enough steam to get us to our ultimate destination. 

We're trekking on foot again. It's the people who've demonstrated indefatigable competence and dedication over years--and in the case of great men like Jared Taylor and John Derbyshire, decades--who serve as examples that the next generation must look up to and emulate. Time has tested them and they have passed with flying colors. 

I'm happy to report that "the JQ" is a big topic this year. So is South Africa. Simon Roche's presentation is the one I'm most looking forward to tomorrow. More then.

White Republicans marginally more scientifically literate than white Democrats

The implicit condescension in the "I f*cking love science!" society wide virtue signal is grating. When it comes to biological differences between human populations and between men and women, they're as anti-science as it gets.

It is in this vein I've periodically tapped the GSS to show that Republicans are more scientifically literate than Democrats, the only major exception being on the question of evolution (but not, as noted earlier, the implications of evolutionary pressures on human populations over the last 10,000 years).

The intention is not to imply that it is actually Rs who f*cking love science!, it's to empirically counter the elevated sense of scientific enlightenment particularly obnoxious (white) leftists pretend to enjoy. And to do it with a fun biological shiv twist, by pointing out the obvious reason Republicans are more scientifically literate than Democrats is because most blacks and a plurality of Hispanics are Democrats, while Republicans are the de facto white party.

That inevitably leads to the question of whether, among (non-Hispanic) whites, Republicans or Democrats are more scientifically literate. The approximate answer I've offered in the past is that they're about the same, but until now I hadn't formally presented it.

The following table shows the percentages, by partisan affiliation, who correctly answered each of the 14 science module questions the survey has included in every iteration since 2006. Bolded red figures indicate greater knowledge among Republicans; bolded blue figures indicate greater knowledge among Democrats:

Scientific literacy among non-Hispanic whites by partisan affiliationRep%Dem%
Astrology is not scientific74.469.5
Father, not mother, determines a child's sex77.275.2
Continental drift has and continues to occur86.993.1

Not all radioactivity is man-made89.587.6
It takes the earth one year to rotate around the sun78.377.8
Antibiotics do not kill viruses67.766.2

As expected, little to see here. Republicans do better on eight items, Democrats better on six. Among whites, there isn't much difference in intelligence by partisan affiliation--the bigger difference is between those who have a partisan affiliation and those who don't, with the former tending to be markedly more intelligent than the latter.

Jig Bohnson (heh) suggests controlling for SES. The following four tables show the same as above but separated by self-identified social class:

Again, not much here. Democrats look marginally better when attempts to adjust for class are made, but with the exception of the question of evolution, all the differences remain modest and are largely attributable to sampling noise.

Zuck's with Her

Ted Cruz has a sharp mind and a quick wit, and he knows how to find his way to a polemical jugular:



He's probably also aware that he doesn't have a single sympathizer among Zuck's legions of soylent staff.

The following graph shows individual donations made by Facebook employees to presidential candidates during the 2016 campaign season:


Want to know what a male Hillary Clinton supporter--a nĂ¼male--looks like? Find a Facebook employee.

That's right, crooked Hillary received more than 85% of all campaign contributions made by Facebook employees during the course of the 2016 presidential campaign. Democrats took 93.1% of the total; Republicans 5.8%, and third-party candidates 1.1%.

Politically, Facebook and the Imperial Capital have a lot in common.

Support for wealth redistribution via taxation

The following graph shows mean redistributionist scores by selected demographic characteristics. Since the late seventies the GSS has asked a question about how much redistributive action the government should take through taxation to reduce income inequality. For ease of understanding, the scores are inverted from how they are reported in the survey. The question is on a seven-point scale. The higher the score, the stronger the support for forced redistribution. For contemporary relevance, all responses shown are from the year 2000 onward (N = 11,478):


No big surprises, with the possible exception of Jews, who are less supportive of redistributive taxation than their political orientation and partisan affiliation would otherwise suggest.

There seem to be two major poles of thought with regards to Ashkenazism on the alt right. One, expressed regularly here by IHTG, sees them as uber SWPLs--urban-dwelling, high-IQ professional liberals. The other the Kevin MacDonald Culture of Critique view.

One major strike against the Jews-as-super-SWPLs is that Jews are ethnocentric while gentile SWPLs are about the least ethnocentric group of people on the planet. The CoC view accounts for this.

Wealth redistribution as measured in the GSS is another example of Jews arguably looking out for themselves. This is in sharp contrast to SWPLs. As the graph above shows, despite not benefitting from it, white liberals are even more supportive of wealth redistribution than blacks are.

One question that arises from this is whether or not Jews can be convinced that it is in their interest to join us. To even raise the prospect will be seen by some white identitarians as courting disaster.

On the other hand, Jews have a record of success. "If you can't beat them, join them" is an aphorism that may increasingly be simultaneously relevant to Jews and white identitarians with regards to one another.

A majority of Jews who marry in the US are now marrying non-Jews. When Orthodox Jews, who have less power and influence in society than the irreligious 'ethnic' Jews that run large portions of the country, are taken out of the equation, Jewish fertility is well below replacement.

Is Jewish dilution coupled with a drop from the 2% towards the 1% enough for them to realize that to everyone else, they're just rich white oppressors, no different from the coal miner in Appalachia--except they have more money!

The Rainbow Nation goes dark

Racial population distributions in South Africa, by age cohort:





This data is from 2011. Farm murders have stepped up since then. So has black immigration into South Africa from other sub-Saharan African countries. White emigration from South Africa has increased, too. The demographic situation is thus even bleaker than the above graphs indicate.

The last civilizational light flickering on the southern end of the Dark Continent will be extinguished--the question is "when?", not "if?". Not long after that, the continent's young, exploding population will stampede north. Or, in what will be an ironic historical twist, sail west in tightly-packed ships as the trans-Atlantic 'refugee' invade commences.

China isn't going to stop it. The Han will manage the exodus--manage it away from the Orient and towards the Occident. Either the beleaguered remnants of heritage America forcefully reject the impending invasion or the Afrikaners' fate becomes our descendants' fate:

Nobody does Russophobia like Jews do

Z-Man goes off the deep end, claiming that neoconservatism--"an ethnocentric death cult"--is a movement possessed by and obsessed with an ancestral hatred of Russia:
Their singular focus is Russia. Even their opposition to Trump is based on his unwillingness to talk about Putin as you know who. If you list all of the neocon wars and wish-for wars, Russia is the common theme. The defining characteristic of the neocon is a hatred for Russia, viewing it as the Mordor in the great battle between the righteous and the wicked.
Granted, as has been shown here, there may have been some truth to that in the past, when the Ashkenazim in question had just escaped Soviet persecution and their adopted homeland--or the homeland that adopted them, at any rate--was locked in a global struggle with the evil empire.

But that was then. This is now. To carry on about an alleged hatred driving so much of contemporary domestic and international politics today, though, is, well, shamefully anti-semitic!

There, I said it. Whew, that was cathartic. Virtue-signalling is hard work...

Oh, what's this? It's a Reuters-Ipsos poll from the previous Current Year. The following graph shows the percentages of respondents, by selected demographics, who say Russia poses either an "imminent" or a "serious" threat to the United States (N = 3,246):


Can't let this little doozy get out.

Anyway, the Jewish sample is small, at 63, so take it as merely suggestive if you have the turpitude to take it at all! And then take Bill Kristol, John Podhoretz, Max Boot, David Frum, Laura Rosenberger--aw hell, just about anyone with a tribal (((surname)))--as merely suggestive, too, you anti-semite!

Impending 2018 mid-term muff

Drawing from a large Reuters-Ipsos polling sample (N = 24,487), the following graphs show, first, the percentages of Trump voters who say they will vote Democrat in the 2018 congressional mid-terms, and second, the percentages of Clinton voters who say they will vote Republican in the 2018 congressional mid-terms (both in a two-way race with those not intending to vote or to vote third-party are excluded):


A majority of Democrats who took a chance on Trump in 2016 are reclinating back home in 2018. A sizable number of independents are leaving, too, as are 1-in-8 young MAGAmen. In contrast, the Democrat line looks like it will hold:

For those who've long been accustomed to Republican chicanery, the Trump glass is XX% full--no new pointless and profligate wars (yet), some tough talk regarding sanctuary cities, Stephen Miller--heaven preserve him--!, the good riddance of a number of swamp creatures like Jeff Flake and Paul Ryan, etc.

But for the crossovers and the restless revolutionaries, the glass is XX[X?]% empty. We're bombing Syria again, the wall remains 0% complete, Hillary Clinton walks free, nearly everyone who rode the Trump Train into the Imperial City has been run out on a rail (except for Stephen Miller--heaven preserve him), the budget deficit is growing faster than it did under Obama, the tough talk on trade remains little more than tough talk, on and on.

What do they have to celebrate? A tax cut for corporations, another infinity-billion dollars for the military-industrial complex, and a resurrection of the bloodthirsty John Bolton.

Trump lost the popular vote by a couple of points and these results suggest the gap will double in size to four points in November without accounting for the motivational edge Democrats, as the party 'out of power', historically tend to benefit from. Virginia in 2016 and then in 2017 is a pretty good blueprint for what 2018 will look like.

When the GOP took control of congress in 2010, capturing a 49-seat majority in the House, the party won the popular vote by eight points. A four point margin translates into about a 15-seat majority for Democrats next January.

If that comes to pass, Trump effectively becomes a lame duck. He's reduced to rule by executive order, with every EO hopelessly tied up in the courts. As we approach the 2020 presidential election the MAGA agenda remains stillborn and that's the end of the god-emperor.

As Z-Man articulates brilliantly--this ten-minute segment is stellar even by Power Hour standards--it's time for Trump to flip over the tables. The president's instincts were to do this when the omnibus spending bill was put on his desk, but he balked.

No more. Trump needs to go back to being Trump. If he doesn't make a big course correction, and soon, it's not hard to see how this plays out.

Whatever happens in the next few months, Trump goes down as a pathfinder, a man who, at great personal cost, blew the Overton Window wide open and fatally harpooned the Republican elephant. The elephant hasn't collapsed yet, but it will. There will be a lot of bleeding out in November. President Trump may have peaked, but Trumpism has not. Its ascent is just beginning.

Stay out of Syria

Via Reuters-Ipsos, we're reduced to celebrating that at least we probably won't get another Iraq (N = 10,390):


And that young MAGAmen are not eager to go in search for monsters to destroy--we have plenty in need of destroying right here at home.

And that Max Boot, Bill Kristol, and John Podhoretz are in the minority even among the most bloodthirsty group of all. No, anti-semite, I'm talking about Republicans who voted for Clinton! Oh wait...

Prole patrol

Steve Sailer draws attention to the BBC complaining that the Gun Control Movement (which is Good) is too white (which is Bad) and too rich (which is Bad insofar as it proxies for whiteness). Setting aside the parenthetical connotations of white and rich, it is worth pointing out that white proles want to keep their guns while white burghers are more keen on taking them away. A similar pattern, shifted to the left, is apparent among non-whites (N = 3,887):


The BBC's opening sentence reads:
Is the new movement against gun violence that is sweeping America too white and too rich?
A humbly offered addendum, so that it will more accurately read:
Is the long-running movement against gun ownership that is riding the carcasses of American high school shooting victims too rich, too (((white))), and too non-white?
Opinions will vary.

Outside the realm of opinion is a recognition of gun rights as an American thing. More immigration means less support for the right to bear arms. The percentage of US-born American residents who oppose laws requiring would-be gun buyers to obtain permits before purchasing their firearms, 24.5%, is nearly twice that among foreign-born residents, at 13.9% (N = 32,971).

Oh no, no, no, we don't Apu of that!

One of the humorless, vinegar-drinking scolds dripping with supercilious contempt--the people has done what contemporary comedians spend so much time doing. He has looked at something genuinely funny and proclaimed 'that is NOT okay':
normies refer to as "comedians"--
In a truTV documentary The Problem With Apu, comedian Hari Kondabolu argues that the portrayal of Apu, voiced by Hank Azaria, created stereotypes of South Asians that were then picked up and mocked by non-South Asians in wider society.
No, Apu was created based on existing stereotypes of South Asians. These stereotypes exist because they tend to more often be associated with South Asians than with non-South Asians. Heuristics are helpful.
"I don't hate The Simpsons," Kondabolu explained in the documentary. "In fact, I have always loved The Simpsons. It's one of the main reasons that I knew you could be smart and funny and political at the same time... I know Apu is one of the smartest characters on The Simpsons, granted that the bar isn't set very high, but that's not why people liked him. They just liked his accent.

"I never heard anyone say they liked Apu because he exposed the idiocy and bigotry of Americans and the struggles of the average immigrant. No, it was just 'I love Apu. That voice is hilarious.'"
It's almost as if the South Asian Kondabolu enjoys The Simpsons because its marquee South Asian is one of the shows most exemplary characters, just as Kondabolu imagines himself to be. But he also despises the show because that exemplary South Asian character, Apu, does not share Kondabolu's hatred of and disdain for middle Americans. The cognitive dissonance is painful. Can Apu really be a stand-up guy if he doesn't hate whitey? What other indication of morality is there anymore?

In the occasional episodes I've seen over the last few years, it appears that the running gag about Smithers unrequited gay love for Mr. Burns has been long since retired.

In the basement I have one of the series' most famous posters, one people familiar with the series will instantly recognize. During its golden age, the show wonderfully lampooned 1990s suburban America. I'm always struck by how white and male the cast is.

Even a generation ago, that was the only way to do it. Want to have people do a lot of irrational, superstitious, stupid stuff? Better make the vast majority of them white men if you don't want to face excommunication by the cultMarx clerisy.

This is why the left will lose the new culture war. Comedy is integral to culture and SJWs are incapable of it. An especially salient illustration of as much followed Trump's alleged "shithole countries" quip. It was the remark that melted a million mudflakes:



The late night lineup of CultMarx-approved comedians do not push boundaries, they patrol them. For now.

Gun nuts are not nutty

The percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, experiencing poor mental health defined as issues with "stress, depression, and problems with emotions" in the past month, by whether or not they own at least one gun. Red bars show the percentage of gun owners among the demographic group who experience poor mental health. Blue bars show the percentage of non-owners among the same demographic group who experience poor mental health (N = 5,290):


The differences in mental health are modest but since I ran the numbers they may as well be shared here.

Differences are generally larger across demographic groups than they are within demographic groups by gun ownership. The one exception, Jews, have a sample size of only 83 and just 12 of those 83 are gun owners. Given Jewish antipathy towards gun ownership in general and of the NRA in particular, though, the contrast is interesting.

Blacks and political independents who own guns have marginally worse mental health than blacks and political independents without them. Since armed blacks scare SWPLs more than anyone else, their opposition to gun rights is not surprising. For all other groups--and for society on the whole--gun owners tend to have better mental health than do those who don't own guns.

With the small Jewish exception, gun-owning Republicans are the most mentally healthy group of people in the country.

Most whites know Diversity! is inherently anti-white (and substantial numbers of non-whites do, too)

From an extensive YouGov poll conducted earlier this week comes the following gem:


Fewer than one-in-five (18%) of respondents answered "not sure". Those responses are excluded above.

A few other comments:

- Some 89% of Trump voters view Israel as either an "ally" or "friendly" to the US. Just 5% view it as an "enemy" or "unfriendly". The optimal rhetorical approach for our side to take is one of emulating Israel, not of despising it.

- Due to the vast racial differences in the under 30 and over 65 generational cohorts, these surveys would really benefit from breaking age groups down by race. The under 30 cohort is barely half (non-Hispanic) white, while the over 65 cohort is upwards of 90% white. This renders generational comparisons tough to gauge.

- From a list of 15 issues, "immigration" and "the economy" tied for first among Trump voters (20% each). Immigration came in way ahead of the standard GOPe platform issues of yesterday like abortion, taxes, and foreign policy. Among the total population, immigration came in fourth (10%), behind social security (15%), health care (15%), and the economy (11%).

John McShame

John McCain is more popular among Democrats than he is among Republicans (contemporary binary poll, N = 12,644):


They came, they saw, Europe died
The 800-pound black pill in the graph is that these figures are above 50% across the board. McCain, like Hillary Clinton, combines the worst aspects of left-wing progressivism and right-wing progressivism together into a (hopefully moribund) bituminous stew of civilizational decay--and most people smile and nod in agreement with these anti-white butchers.

On the other hand, it's increasingly clear the Republican party is going to have to be burned to the ground and a new shiv nationalism arise from the ashes if it will ever be the political vehicle for an American renaissance. Contemporary Republicans don't much like McCain (58.6% two-way), but they do like Trump (81.3% two-way). They like Trump more than Mitch McConnell, too.

We wanted the change yesterday. We may have to settle for tomorrow. The battle will be a long one, so prepare for the long game. The future will be here before we know it:

Most people have a "favorable view" of the NRA

The little fuhrer needs to push harder, scream louder, gesticulate more frenetically. He's not even moving the needle among his own generational cohorts. The public has a more favorable view of the NRA than it does of the media, the president, or congress.

There is one group that really despises the organization, though, a group that is especially overrepresented among said media. The sample size for that group is just 67 though, so surely there is nothing to see here. Forget I mentioned it.

The following graph shows the percentages of respondents, by selected demographic characteristics, who have a "favorable view" of the NRA. The question is a dichotomous one, with the other option being an "unfavorable view" (N = 3,887):

America's impending rapefugee crisis

Thousands of alleged Hondurans are being ushered through the narco-state to our south with support from the Mexican government there and from 'humanitarian' groups here (groups that should be charged with criminal conspiracy). They're headed for Tijuana. They know catch-and-release means they'll be running around California in a month, scheduled for an asylum hearing six months later they'll never bother showing up for. This thing is coordinated, and the invasion auxiliary forces know how to play the game:
There are month-old infants being carried by young mothers alongside elders in their seventies who are making the journey. There’s also a small contingent of people who identify as LGBTQ.
From video footage and photos it doesn't appear that this invasion force is as overwhelmingly comprised of fighting-age young men as the Middle Eastern and African invasions into Europe have been, but the media is portraying the exceptions--queers, grannies, tots--as the rule. Young men are clearly overrepresented:



The rhetorical projectiles--nativism, homophobia, misogyny--are being put in place ahead of their arrival at the US border a couple of weeks from now, when the full battle will be joined.

Initial reports were, as mentioned above, that the caravan was heading towards Tijuana. Major media now appears to be running interference on that, reporting that there are several potential crossing points the invaders may end up heading for--it's all contingent on the capriciousness of the train schedules!

They are heading to Tijuana because California is just a hop and skip to the north. Why enter through Arizona or Texas when a renegade state that is engaged in a low-grade insurgency against the federal government over illegal immigration is a potential destination instead?

The wall should have been constructed yesterday. If this horde isn't turned back, these thousands of Hondurans will be a tremor ahead of the impending magnitude 9.0 earthquake that will manifest itself as a mass exodus from Venezuela, a failed socialist state where people are literally eating pigeons and whoring themselves out for groceries.

Blow up the White House phone lines tomorrow, (202) 456-1111. Get in on the virtual action, too. Plead with president Trump to stop the invasion.

If he lets this vanguard in, he risks becoming the American Angela Merkel. The coming showdown over this is shaping up to be a watershed moment not only in the Trump presidency or even the history of the US, but of the history of Western civilization.
