PETER BRIMELOW writes: I appeared on James Edwards' radio show last Saturday night (listen here), which is several centuries ago in terms of Ye West controversies. But the immigration issue, and spinoffs like state secession and impeachment, go marching on.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Peter Brimelow, the Editor of VDARE. com, formerly of Forbes (back in the day, you could have a difference of opinion with the shadowy cabal that runs our way of life and still be employed by publications like that) and author of the best-selling book Alien Nation, Common Sense About America's Immigration Disaster. He is back for a wide-ranging discussion on news and current events. Peter, are you there?

PETER BRIMELOW:

Yes, I am, James.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Well, it's great to have you back tonight. Did you get a chance to listen to Steve King's comments on the program in the last hour?

PETER BRIMELOW:

I certainly did. And of course, I was in the audience when he gave his keynote address at the Amren Conference last week, which was actually very successful. It was a real tour d'horizon of Western civilization. He made his case very powerfully.

JAMES EDWARDS:

Well, everything that Steve King said, I couldn't find any cause for disagreement. Of course, his championing of America First immigration policy is something near and dear to your heart.

PETER BRIMELOW:

At VDARE.com. we have followed Steve King’s career very closely for a long time. (See here, here, here, etc) And in fact, at our Book Club, James Kirkpatrick actually did an interview with him on his book, Walking Though The Fire.

We do have a disagreement with Steve King. Completely contrary to what the swine in the Republican Party leadership and in the Mainstream Media (to the extent that they can be distinguished) say, he's not in any sense a White Nationalist. He’s always been a Civic Nationalist. He talks about Western civilization.

At VDARE.com I run a fairly broad church. We have people who take a more racially conscious look at what America is, as Jared Taylor does. And we have people who are purely Civic Nationalist.

But King was completely innocent of any of that stuff. He was always a Civic Nationalist.

And it did not do him any damn good at all. They just wanted him out. And the reason they wanted him out was, I believe, because the immigration issue on which he had emerged as a champion is central to the way the Republican Party elite runs itself now.

VDARE.com is Politically Incorrect. We do take risks. But King wasn't Politically Incorrect, actually. They just wanted to find somebody   to lynch.

They are very determined to maintain discipline. And I really do think that the key issue to the people who run the Republican Party is immigration. They are desperate to avoid any immigration patriots emerging as leaders. Which is why McConnell went to such great lengths to suppress Kris Kobach in his Senate race in 2020. And why nobody rallied behind Jeff Sessions. This is why Kevin McCarthy spent money against Laura Loomer in her primary (she was running on an immigration moratorium), and Joe Kent on in his primary (he was also running on the immigration moratorium issue).

I realize that I’m obsessed with immigration, it’s what I do at VDARE.com. But I really do think that the donors and the people who run the party really don't want this issue to surface. And I believe the reason is that they know if, there are leaders on this question, it will crystallize massive national opposition to the Great Replacement.

For example, Steve King was extremely pro-Israel. But it did him no good. When he was under pressure in the primary, the Republican Jewish Coalition denounced him. He was also extremely Right-To-Life but the National Right To Life Organization denounced him. Their behavior was absolutely disgraceful. I mean, they had no reason to get involved in Steve King's primary, but they did. It shows they are just a Front Group for the Republican leadership.

JAMES EDWARDS:

And he mentioned the Great Replacement. I asked him the pointed question,

Just when you’re thinking things couldn’t get any crazier on the immigration front, … they get crazier.

In last week’s podcast I noted the lavish benefits being showered on illegal aliens by New York City politicians—at the generous expense of New York taxpayers, of course.

And yes, it’s gotten crazier. I’ll just read a couple of paragraphs from the story in Wednesday’s New York Post.

A pair of Albany Democrats from New York City want taxpayers to pick up as much as $300 million in legal fees to help illegal immigrants fight deportation—despite worries it could also help potentially ”dangerous people” stay in the country.

[Inner quote.] ”We have a moral obligation to make sure that new Americans have legal representation. Otherwise, the odds are without a lawyer they’ll be sent back to their country of origin and could face dire circumstances, including death,” [end inner quote] state Sen. Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) said of legislation he is sponsoring alongside Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz (D-Queens).

Legislators estimate the effort would cost $300 million once fully funded, with supporters pushing for a $55 million down payment next year.

[‘Last thing we need’: Pols want NYers to pay $300M so illegal migrants can stay, by Zach Williams, NY Post, November 30, 2022]

”Moral obligation”? State Sen. Brad Hoylman—both gay and Jewish according to Wikipedia—is a sanctimonious weasel.

Dismantling the meritocracy    I think it was Steve Sailer who first observed that the now-ubiquitous initialism DEI, for "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion," should more properly be written DIE, as in: "DIE, WHITEY!"

Nowhere is that more apt than in the field of medical education, as we were reminded early in November when the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) extruded a 68-page report on "Assessing and Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Efforts at AAMC Medical Schools."

I don't recommend you try reading the report. It's all written in dense Diversperanto jargon (Ctrl-F "holistic"—eleven hits). The excellent Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, co-proprietor of the anti-woke medical website Do No Harm, published a readable summary of the AAMC report in the New York Post.

So how are medical schools most woke? Affirmative action, for one: 100 percent have "admissions policies and practices for encouraging a diverse class of students." Fully 85 percent have leaders who've "used demographic data to promote change" within their institution. In other words, medical schools are giving skin color and gender a consistently bigger emphasis in recruiting. This approach risks de-prioritizing merit, leading to a lower quality of medical students.  [Med schools are even more woke than you think—and your care is at risk, by Dr. Stanley Goldfarb; New York Post, November 16 2022.]

De-prioritizing merit, right. (Although Dr. Goldfarb's usage of the weasely "skin color and gender" raised my hackles a millimeter or two. What's wrong with "race and sex"? But this may have been a Post editor substituting his own words for Dr. Goldfarb's.) Why would medical schools want to risk de-prioritizing merit? Isn't merit in the practice of medicine, like, … meritorious?

So far as I could discover from further Ctrl-F-ing, the AAMC report sheds no light. Here's a different document that does, though: the American Medical Association's 2021 report "Organizational Strategic Plan to Embed Racial Justice and Advance Health Equity."

This one was 86 pages of Diversibabble. I couldn't face reading it myself, but fortunately Jared Taylor did the job for us at American Renaissance back in September. Jared scraped and bagged the following little deposit from page 12:

The myth of meritocracy … is a narrative that attributes success or failure to individual abilities and merits. It does not address the centuries of unequal treatment that have intentionally robbed entire communities of the vital resources needed to thrive.  [Medicine Goes Dangerously Insane, by Jared Taylor; American Renaissance, September 9 2022.]

The word "dangerously" in Jared's title is not hyperbolic. Third-rate doctoring may kill ya and the DEI cult is pushing third-rate doctors into the profession as fast as it can.

Dr. Barton Cockey has written about this repeatedly

Earlier, by Federale:  What Can The Republican House Do On Immigration? A Lot, Even With A Small Majority

The midterms weren’t a complete disaster for Republicans. They won the House and can act on the illegal-alien invasion at the southwest border. The GOP campaigned (too quietly) on the border crisis and voters who rated immigration as an important issue were more likely to go Republican. Polls show widespread disapproval for Joe Biden’s policy of Open Borders. Americans want their government to secure the border and to deport illegal aliens. They also want those responsible for this attack on the Historic American Nation to pay a price. So what will a GOP-led House will likely do—and not do—on immigration?

  • Amnesty Is Dead

Immigration patriots should be most happy with what Congress will not do. Almost certainly, Amnesty will not pass a Republican-controlled House. Democrats tried to pass three Amnesties last year. One legalized the so-called Dreamers (illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors), another legalized illegal-alien farm workers, and the third was the budget bill that would have legalized millions of illegals. The first two Amnesties received some Republican support, but a number of those Republicans are gone. The third received only Democratic support and, like the other two bills, died in the Senate.

Another proposed Amnesty, President Biden’s brainstorm, would have given all illegal aliens
