The Coming Middle-American Resistance

President Trump has taken significant criticism for his recent comments on low-income government housing from a speech in Texas late last month:

You know the suburbs, people fight all of their lives to get into the suburbs and have a beautiful home… There will be no more low-income housing forced into the suburbs.… It’s been going on for years. I’ve seen conflict for years. It’s been hell for suburbia.

These comments speak to the current state and local dynamic. Americans, in the past, would move to rural or suburban areas in order to separate from hostile persons, be near those more like themselves, and protect their rights. However, this time-honored American tradition is now threatened by the anti-America forces. For a glimpse into America’s post-2020 future, look no further than the Old Dominion.

Virginia has been turned blue, as demographic replacement of actual Virginians continues apace. Your correspondent was once a resident of Loudoun County, Virginia, historically known as the heart of “Mosby’s Confederacy,” the stomping grounds of John S. Mosby’s partisan Confederate Cavalry during the Late Unpleasantness. I can testify to the astonishingly rapid transformation of one of America’s most beautiful counties in the last 20 years, as Loudoun was paved over and demographically reshaped, a transformation driven by mass immigration. During my last visit there a few years ago, much of the county was unrecognizable, and Loudon is now irrevocably “blue.” Indeed, nowadays one can conduct an internet search for “the best mosques in Loudoun County” and get an answer.

Support for the demographic inundation of our homeland by foreigners—the more exotic, the better—is the core element of a naked power grab by a political and economic establishment hell-bent on nullifying the electoral power of Middle America. The Trump impeachment farce was indicative of what The Swamp has been telling us for some time: the powers-that-be fully intend to proceed with their plans, regardless of the results of national elections. Time is not on America’s side. Anti-America has largely managed to slow down, stymie, and sabotage efforts to control immigration, illegal and otherwise. America as we knew her is rapidly vanishing, and Middle Americans, the Euro-American ethnic core of the nation targeted for replacement, are facing the existential question of survival in an increasingly hostile environment. The clash between America and anti-America is moving to the state and county level, as I noted in a previous Chronicles editorial (“The End of Politics,” May 2019).

Virginia is a bellwether in that regard, and the battle lines for the struggle were drawn this past year. Following the Democrats’ 2019 electoral victory, the victors passed various laws aimed at disarming Virginia’s legal gun owners. “Gun violence,” largely perpetrated by non-white minorities, was used as an excuse to go after the people anti-America really hates. The new legislation included “red flag” laws, gun registration, expanded background checks, and limits on gun purchases, measures that in practice have done nothing to end the lamentable “gun violence” the left uses as a stage prop in its Kabuki theater effort to disarm Middle America and head off the actual resistance now taking shape.

Since the 2019 state elections, a pro-gun movement has prompted no less than 91 of Virginia’s 95 counties, as well as 15 towns and cities, to adopt “gun sanctuary” resolutions protecting gun owners’ right to keep and bear arms. What’s most striking about the pro-gun measures is that the National Rifle Association was not the driving force behind these efforts to challenge Governor Ralph Northam and his allies in the State Assembly. Local groups, such as the Virginia Citizens Defense League, led the campaign. Thousands of local groups’ supporters turned up at county board meetings demanding that their county administrations act. 

This past spring, Northam and his legislative allies responded with a budget bill that provided additional funding for the enforcement of their new gun control measures, including provisions for an anticipated increase in operating costs for “correctional facilities” when said measures would come into effect, as they did in early July. This included $250,000 for the increase in prison beds as a result of their new gun laws. Thus, Virginia’s rural gun owners, the most militant champions of pro-gun sentiment, can’t expect to benefit from any “prison reform” the “woke” State Assembly may enact. Showing great foresight, gun sanctuary advocate and sheriff of Culpeper County, Scott Jenkins, back in December, called the pro-gun movement a defensive counter to an outright assault on the culture and way of a life of traditional Virginia. The last seven months have proved him right. Indeed, this is a battle over identity and the existence of Middle America itself. 

In this battle, rural Virginia may gain allies in the suburbs. In the weeks following their electoral victory, the looney left in the Virginia State Assembly was feeling its oats and considering flexing its muscles through proposals that would override local zoning laws and “bring high density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide—whether residents want it or not,” as the Daily Caller reported at the time. Supporters of such legislation in the Virginia State Assembly made it plain that “upzoning” was necessary since, “Suburbs are bastions of segregation and elitism.” Abolishing “low density neighborhoods,” we were told, is necessary for “equity.”

The message to Middle American suburbanites was clear: you can run, but you can’t hide. And soon enough, you won’t be able to run, either. COVID-19 put “upzoning” on the backburner, but if the reaction to Trump’s recent comments prove anything it is that Anti-America still wants it.

Anti-America has used nullification (“sanctuary cities,” for instance) to undercut immigration laws, and historic America is following suit in forming a “resistance” of its own. “Gun sanctuary” language, which amounts to a declaration that local police will not enforce anti-gun legislation, is becoming a Middle American battle cry in Illinois, Washington, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, and Tennessee.   

Historic America’s resistance does not stop there, however. Aside from his recent comments, President Trump has taken measures aimed at sharply reducing the number of “refugees” accepted by the United States, and signed an executive order giving states, counties, and localities the right to veto refugee re-settlements in their jurisdictions, which adds some muscle to the bone and sinew of the Middle American resistance movement that is beginning to take shape. In Tennessee, for example, several localities in the past year have adopted resolutions rebuking Governor Bill Lee’s approval of State Department resettlement of refugees in the Volunteer State. Add to that other signs of Middle American resistance in recent years, such as red inland California contemplating secession from the blue coastal region to form a “New California,” and the broad outlines of a Middle American resistance movement begin to come into focus, one that would use nullification and secession to build redoubts from which we can defend ourselves.

We don’t know where a Middle American resistance movement may end up, or what other tools it might employ (“sanctuary” from “upzoning” could come up), but if analogues to the Virginia gun proposals are raised at the national level, they may act as the catalyst for the consolidation of historic America’s self-defense. Anti-America has no intention of leaving anyone alone. We can fight or capitulate; there are no other options.

You're going on about the sound of Kamala's laughter? How damn petty can you get? It's full hearted and shows she can enjoy the company of others. Try to say the same thing about trump.

Newsweek Caves to the Rage Mob After Publishing an OpEd About Harris

Beth Baumann
Posted: Aug 15, 2020 1:50 PM

Newsweek decided to publish an opinion piece by Dr. John Eastman, a law professor at Chapman University and a Senior Fellow at the Claremont Institution. In his OpEd, Eastman makes the argument that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is ineligible to be vice president because she's not a "natural born citizen." 

"Her father was (and is) a Jamaican national, her mother was from India, and neither was a naturalized U.S. citizen at the time of Harris' birth in 1964. That, according to these commentators, makes her not a 'natural born citizen'—and therefore ineligible for the office of the president and, hence, ineligible for the office of the vice president," Eastman wrote. 

Of course, the cancel culture mob went after Newsweek editors, claiming that this was pushing the "birther" movement. Editors responded by defending Eastman's piece, saying it had nothing to do with the birther movement (emphasis mine).

Joe Biden’s Mask Mandate Is Only The Beginning



Issues & Insights

August 15, 2020

At a briefing on Thursday, Joe Biden called for a nationwide mask-wearing mandate “for the next three months at a minimum.” Never mind that such a federal mandate is likely unconstitutional, this is just one of a multitude of areas where Biden, and his running mate Kamala Harris, want to impose the federal government on even the most mundane of actions by Americans.

It is surely worth noting, especially by those who claim to value liberty, that Biden and Harris eagerly desire to take much of it away, always in the name of some greater good. Indeed, over the course of their campaigns, the two have proposed either to outlaw or force so many things there’s not enough room to list them all here.

So, as a reader service, we’ve gathered up a sampling of things they say they want to either ban or mandate should they gain access to the White House.


Plastic straws: When Harris was asked at a town hall whether the federal government should ban plastic straws, her answer was, “I think we should, yes.” Biden didn’t go that far, but did say that “I don’t think we should be using plastic straws anymore.”

Plastic bags: Biden did, however, say he favored a ban on plastic grocery bags. “I agree with you, 100%,” Biden told a woman at a campaign stop. “We should not be allowing plastic. What we should do is phasing it out.”

Gas-powered cars: Biden pledges that he will impose fuel economy mandates that will “ensure” 100% electric cars. Harris, meanwhile, was a co-sponsor of The Zero-Emission Vehicles Act, which would outlaw the sale of new gas-powered cars starting in 2040.

The death penalty: Biden used to support the death penalty, but flipped so he could appeal to his party’s left wing. Now he says that “Because we can’t ensure that we get these cases right every time, we must eliminate the death penalty.” Many Democratic presidential candidates echoed the same message.

Private prisons: Biden promises to “end the federal government’s use of private prisons,” says his campaign website, “And he will make clear that the federal government should not use private facilities for any detention, including detention of undocumented immigrants.”

New oil and gas leases on federal lands and offshore: In a March debate, Biden promised that if elected there would be “no more drilling on federal lands, no more drilling, including offshore, no ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period, ends, number one.” Later his campaign said he meant only to ban new permits.

Fracking: Biden has tried to straddle the fracking issue, but Harris said during her primary campaign that she supports an outright prohibition. “There is no question I am in favor of banning fracking.”

“Assault” Rifles. Both Biden and Harris promise to ban so-called assault rifles such as the AR-15, but Harris went much further. She promised that if elected she would impose a mandatory buyback program. “We have to work out the details — there are a lot of details — but I do” support a forced buyback, Harris said. “We have to take those guns off the streets.” The Washington Examiner reported last August that Harris was even open to the idea of sending the police into homes to confiscate guns.

Right-to-work laws: In a sop to their union benefactors, both Biden and Harris promise to overturn the right-to-work laws in effect in 28 states. Harris said the president needs “to speak up about the need and the right workers have to be able to organize and fight for their rights … It has to be about banning right-to-work laws”.

Trump from Twitter: Harris pushed Twitter to ban President Donald Trump from Twitter. “Twitter should be held accountable and shut down that site,” Harris said during one of the Democrats’ debates.

Social media hate speech: Harris also wants to ban “hate speech” on social media. ”We will hold social media platforms accountable for the hate infiltrating their platforms because they have a responsibility to help fight against this threat to our democracy,” Harris said during her campaign.

Private health insurance: During the campaign, Harris said she favored a ban on private insurance, then retreated somewhat. The health plan she eventually released would have ended up putting private insurance out of business. Biden says he wants to “build on ObamaCare,” but his “public option” would also result in the eventual destruction of private insurance.

A Look Backward & Forward at Trump

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness August 17, 2020

Perhaps 70 percent of Trumpism remains a hodgepodge of Reaganism: strong defense, realist foreign policy, deregulation, smaller government, big deficits, tax cuts, energy growth, and stars-and-stripes traditionalism.

A Reality-Based Look at Trump and the Post Office

Byron York, Washington Examiner August 17, 2020

The news is filled with reports of President Trump's "assault" on the United States Postal Service. The president, Democrats and some in the media say, is deliberately slowing mail delivery and crippling the Postal Service so that it cannot handle an anticipated flood of voting by mail in the presidential election. Former President Barack Obama said Trump is trying to "actively kneecap" the Postal Service to suppress the vote. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the House back into session this week and has set an "urgent hearing" for August 24, demanding Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and the head of the Postal Service Board of Governors testify "to address the sabotage of the Postal Service."

Trump finalizes drilling plan for iconic Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Plan clears the way for an oil and gas lease auction on the refuge’s 1.6 million-acre coastal plain by December 2021

The Trump administration finalized plans Monday to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, a move that will auction off oil and gas rights in the heart of one of the nation’s most iconic wild places. Achieving a goal Republicans have sought for 40 years, it marks a capstone for an administration that has ignored calls to reduce fossil fuel consumption in the face of climate change.

The move will allow leasing on the 1.6 million-acre coastal plain, the center of a nearly pristine wilderness home to migrating caribou and waterfowl as well as polar bears and foxes that live there year-round. It marks a major step toward reviving fossil fuel development in an area that has been untouched for three decades.

In a statement, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said that his department was following through on the 2017 budget bill that instructed the federal government to conduct oil and gas leasing on the refuge.

“President Trump’s leadership brought more than three decades of inaction to an end,” Bernhardt told reporters in a conference call, adding that the plan was “carefully tailored” to minimize its impact on the surrounding environment. “This is no ordinary oil and gas program on public lands.”

Environmentalists and some Alaska Natives — including the Gwich’in, who live outside the refuge but rely on the Porcupine Caribou Herd that migrates through it — have pledged to fight the drilling plan in court. Under the 2017 law, the federal government must conduct two lease sales of 400,000 acres each by December 2024.
