Raise the Minimum Wage to $14 an Hour Using This One Weird Trick!

Ann Coulter, VDARE, February 26, 2014

Democrats believe they’ve hit on the perfect issue to distract from the horror of Obamacare in the 2014 elections: the minimum wage.

{snip}

As The New York Times explained, Democrats see the minimum wage as an issue that “will place Republican candidates in a difficult position,” and also as a tool “to enlarge the electorate in a nonpresidential election, when turnout among minorities and youths typically drops off.”

{snip}

The minimum wage is the perfect Democratic issue. It will screw the very people it claims to help, while making Democrats look like saviors of the working class, either by getting them a higher wage or providing them with generous government benefits when they lose their jobs because of the mandatory wage hike.

Of course, the reason American workers’ wages are so low in the first place is because of the Democrats’ policies on immigration. Republicans might want to point that out.

Since the late 1960s, the Democrats have been dumping about a million low-skilled immigrants on the country every year, driving down wages, especially at the lower end of the spectrum.

According to Harvard economist George Borjas, our immigration policies have reduced American wages by $402 billion a year—while increasing profits for employers by $437 billion a year. (That’s minus what they have to pay to the government in taxes to support their out-of-work former employees. Of course, we’re all forced to share that tax burden.)

Or, as the White House puts it on its website promoting an increase in the minimum wage, “Today, the real value of the minimum wage has fallen by nearly one-third since its peak in 1968.”

Why were wages so high until 1968? Because that’s when Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act kicked in, bringing in about a million immigrants a year, almost 90 percent of them unskilled workers from the Third World.

Our immigration policies massively redistribute wealth from the poorest Americans to the richest. It’s a basic law of economics that when the supply goes up, the price goes down. More workers means the price of their labor plummets.

{snip}

Having artificially created a glut of low-wage workers, now Democrats want to artificially raise their wages.

It’s win-win-win-win-win for Democrats.

  • Employees who get a higher minimum wage are grateful to the Democrats.
  • Employees who lose their jobs because of the minimum wage hike are grateful to the Democrats for generous government handouts.
  • Poor immigrants who need government benefits are grateful to the Democrats.
  • American businesses enjoying the deluge of cheap labor are grateful to the Democrats.
  • Democratic politicians guaranteed re-election by virtue of ethnic bloc voting are grateful to the Democrats.

Do Republicans have any principles at all? Why isn’t the GOP demanding an end to this dump of unskilled workers/Democratic voters on the country?

Democrats show how much they love the poor by importing a million more of them to America each year. But then they prevent the last batch of poor immigrants from getting decent, well-paying jobs by bringing in another million poor people the next year.

You want a higher minimum wage? Turn off the spigot of low-wage workers pouring in to the U.S. and it will rise on its own through the iron law of supply and demand.

In response to the Democrats’ minimum wage proposal, Republicans should introduce a bill ending both legal and illegal immigration until the minimum wage rises naturally to $14 an hour.

Australia has a $15 minimum wage for adults—more than twice the U.S. minimum wage. Meanwhile, their official unemployment rate is lower than ours: 6 percent compared to 6.6 percent in the U.S.—and that’s with a lousy $7.25 minimum wage.

Sound good? Try immigrating there. Australia has some of the most restrictive immigration policies in the world. Their approach to immigration is to admit only people who will be good for Australia. (Weird!) Applicants are evaluated on a point system that gives preference to youth, English proficiency, education and skill level.

Similarly, New Zealand will soon have an official minimum wage of $14.25 for adults. Even our Democrats aren’t proposing that! New Zealand’s minimum wage hit $10.10—the Democrats’ current proposal for us—back in 2006. Their unemployment rate is also 6 percent—up from several years of 4 percent unemployment a few years ago.

Like Australia, New Zealand’s immigration laws are based on helping New Zealand, not on helping other countries get rid of their poor people, which is our policy.

Instead of training the citizenry to look at the government as our paternal benefactor, distributing minimum wage laws and unemployment benefits in important election years, why don’t Republicans put an end to the artificial glut of low-wage, low-skilled workers being imposed on the country by our immigration laws?

Republicans could guarantee a $14 minimum wage simply by closing the pipeline of more than 1 million poor immigrants coming in every year.

Businessmen will gripe, but maybe the GOP could explain to their Chamber of Commerce friends that they will help them by slashing oppressive regulations, reining in government bureaucracies, passing tort reform, etc. They will cut taxes and the welfare state will shrink, as Americans go to work.

But if the plutocrats insist on admitting another 30 million Democratic voters in order to get ever-cheaper labor, then, soon, Republicans won’t be in a position to help them at all.

    Sorry, but she’s totally wrong about Australia’s immigration policies. One need only take a walk around modern-day Melbourne to see that this is true.

    Not to mention, the Australian government pays the Paki and Chinese immigrants for every child they have. Try to wrap your mind around the insanity of that policy considering what India, Pakistan and China look like.

    Where the harm of Australia’s high minimum wage shows itself is in their prices. Everything is close to double what you’d pay in the States.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      The U.S. pays the Southeast Asians for every child they have, too. Up to 3 children. That’s why there are only white men in prison for failure to pay child support.

    • Carlo Latini

      Everything is double because a lot is imported. The country is out in the middle of nowhere.

      • Aussie_Thinker

        Yes and no. Australia does import a lot, but the large quantities they import in minimize any price offset of each individual product. That and the fact Australia is right next to Asia, where most imports come from.
        The big difference comes from companies charging more, and being able to get away with it (there was recently a parliamentary hearing into how even solely digital products in iTunes could cost so much more in AUS than the US) and TAX. For example, the price of a Lamborghini in AUS is roughly double (at the least) that of the US and Europe. You would expect some price increase because of the low consumer base for a product like that here and the cost of importing in low numbers. But then you find out that 40-50% of the price of a Lambo (the actual price, not the increase) is TAX.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Help out some of these naysayers concerning Australia’s immigration policies and enforcement. I don’t pretend to be and expert on it. Gen X ANZAC usually has intelligent commentary on the topic.

        • Pro_Whitey

          Australia does not have the luxury of having the world’s reserve currency, and cannot just print money like the USA can (for the time being). I’ll bet Australia has a value added or goods and services tax that acts like a big tariff to help ensure that it does not buy from abroad more than it sells abroad. That boosts prices.

          • Charles W.

            Definitely, but raising the minimum wage absent any real increase in productivity must also cause a rise in consumer prices. Either that or less minimum wage jobs. This is basic economics.

      • Charles W.

        Everything in America is imported too, yet is cheap. Find me one thing that’s made in the USA in Walmart.

  • John R

    WISE UP REPUBLICANS! What was said in this article is the only way you will survive as a party. Instead of wasting time, “courting the Hispanic voter” why not spend some time responding to the “AMERICAN voter”?

  • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

    Demorats have deliberately screwed up the economy so they can FIX the economy. The problem is that their fixes are bankrupting the economy. They are psychopaths.

    One of my ex-colleagues at the university, a lesbian Mexican woman dean economist who had worked for Clinton, loved the idea that SHE could fix the free market by destroying the free market. It was a huge power trip to her, speaking in arcane economic and bureaucratice jibberish like she was some god or ruler of the universe.

    The old saying, “know your enemy” applies. I have seen our enemies up close and personal. They deserve whatever destruction is wrought upon them because they are destroyers in their darkest heart of hearts. Hopefully they will reap what they sow.

    Stop all immigration NOW.

    • shawnmer

      I’ve followed your comments for a while, they’re exceptional. What was your academic background, if you’re comfortable saying.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        I agree. There are some really solid minds here.

        ‘know your enemy’ sounds like Sun Tzu.

        Sun Tzu approaches to this problem are a good way to go.

      • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

        Thanks. Move the cursor over my avatar and look at my profile. I’m writing stronger, sometimes rude posts on my new saboteur365 blog, writing as Paladin Justice. As for my background, I grew up in a working class suburb of New Orleans. Chalmette was basically all white and parents wanted better for their kids than just to have them be working class, so the schools were good even though they had little money. We kids wanted to make our hard-working, sacrificing parents proud and many of us did.

        I earned a BA and MA from the University of New Orleans in economics, then a doctoral degree in economics from Tulane University. The Tulane economics department was well versed in Chicago school economics, with a strong monetary policy and somewhat libertarian mindset. My profs were not Marxists. Thank goodness.

        During my career, a co-author and I published four intro econ books that with different editions added up to about 30 ISBN numbers–maybe 5 to 7 million words written in total. We wrote in a friendly style, paying a huge amount of attention to detail. We both loved to write.

        In 2008 I was smeared and fired by my university employer of 25 years, with a cabal of Mexican administrators doing the smearing. My real name is all over the Internet, where I’ve been smeared by the administration as a dangerous porn addict, child rapist, rapist in general, child porn addict, and probably a serial killer. That makes me unemployed and unemployable. The only rape victims, child abuse victims, and child porn were in the minds of the administrators. I had no contact with the police, not even an interview, which I would have if any of the smears had any evidence behind them. This is why I can easily write that Mexicans lie.

        The Mexican lesbian dean in my comment above replaced me with a Mexican lesbian, which is what the purpose of the smear was intended to do. My lawsuit was just dismissed on a technicality. But I’m writing the true story of my firing as a full length book, and will be placing it on the Internet as a free pdf download in a few months. I’ll also be offering $100,000 in cash reward money for the felony indictment, arrest, and conviction of the administrators. One of them has already been arrested for sex with an underage boy. Look up David Gabler UTSA on google. The others who smeared me have the same tendencies.

        And so I try to write a million words a year in commentary that hopefully wakes some people up to the dangers of minority rule, including the hatred of men by lesbians, and the Mexican anti-white racism I experienced firsthand.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Breitbart went to Tulane. Another recovering Liberal, eh?

        • MBlanc46

          Thanks for the background. So sorry for your ordeal. Keep fighting the good fight.

          • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

            Thanks. That which does not kill us makes us stronger. Or so they say. I can say for sure that my writing has gotten stronger. A couple of years ago I was writing pablum comments on HuffPo.

        • dd121

          I’m so sorry for your horrible experiences in academia. I think that’s a common experience for white conservatives there.
          Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us on AmRen every day.
          I will say that I hope it gets better for us in our own country but I’m really pessimistic that it will.
          When you publish your book could you put out a link here? I’d like to read it and make a small contribution.

          • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

            Thanks. Yep, I’ll put the link here and as many other places as I can think of. I’ll need moral support from patriots. These days, my thinking revolves around race, blood, honor, kin, and land. These are the traditional white Euro values that sustained us for thousands of years and I’m getting in touch with those values. As a Southerner I had planned to challenge my enemies to a duel, but dueling is against the law. I’ll probably do what Taki did and challenge them to a cage match.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            bigone, lending my voice of appreciation, as well.
            Thank you for all you have done, what you continue to do, educate and inspire. I never fail to read your comments.
            What a sorrowful mess you endured.
            I know others who have suffered abuse at the hands of militant, man hating lesbians. One particular case involved a Dominican lesbian MSW. Ineffective, and a psychopath, she was un-fireable and knew the administration would take no action against her.
            That lot are a scourge on this earth.
            Looking forward to your link.

          • http://saboteur365.wordpress.com/ bigone4u

            Thanks. Yes, when I use the word psychopath in some of my posts I don’t use it lightly. There really are a lot lesbians who are psycho. And a lot of other Cultural Marxists in universities, too.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            bigone, nor do I use the DSM4 term psychopath lightly. The Dominican woman was clearly ill with that disorder.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I dealt with those same un-fireable monsters at a federal contractor as well. The Cultural Marxists are degrading the defense product something awful. It’s hardly any wonder the 30 year technology lead the U.S. had on the rest of the world has been closed.

            And they are regularly getting American soldiers killed from their institutionalized dysfunction. I have to believe hundreds of soldiers needlessly died in the last 10 years in those two wars.

            A 100 years ago people would face firing squads for allowing such systematic acts of treason to take place.

          • http://www.presstitutes.org/ ms_anthro

            And who’s to say it won’t happen again? Firing squads are remarkably cost-effective.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Andrew, I responded to your post to me, it disappeared into moderation.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Military weapon systems. There is a Marine who swings by here who also said the Diversity dumb-down-drill in the military staffing/promotion area was tangibly getting soldiers and civilians needlessly killed. I saw it on the sub-standard weapon system side, and he saw it on the soldier side. He goes by ThomasER916.

          • dd121

            I appreciate the honorable way with which you dealt with the problem. In your situation I might have approached the problem with more directness and finality.

        • Pro_Whitey

          The foregoing summary is a great example of why the universities are filled with leftists. Anyone not toeing the leftist line is handicapped or smeared so they can be denied or pushed out of positions, and leftists are promoted. A combination of coordinated action and a willingness to lie loudly and repeatedly.

        • Katherine McChesney

          best to you. Sorry for your problems. But apparently you were a threat to their deviant lifestyles and political leanings. Glad to know you.

    • James Bro

      Obama and the democrats have successfully made over 6 million Americans fall below the poverty level, added a record 11,000 people per day to SNAP to grow food stamp dependence by 50%, increased black unemployment to 13% and hispanic unemployment to 9%, caused the average family income to drop $4,000, killed the 40 hour work week and now have a record 11 million people on disability payments.

      Democrats win by destroying the middle class and creating more misery and dependence on wasteful and inefficient government programs.

    • John R

      I agree 1000 percent! But “lesbian Mexican dean economist” sounds like the beginning of a dirty joke! I have to admit, that I laughed when I read that! Good comic relief, though.

  • dd121

    The other day Rush said that raising the minimum wage is wealth transference from poor people to other poor people. I’m sure those on the left don’t see the irony of that.

  • Extropico

    Yes Ann. It is only Democrats involved. I recall George H. W. Bush signing the Immigration Act of 1990, wherein the “diversity visa” program was initiated… because there are just too many Whites still here.

    • Spartacus

      There are no differences between the republicans and the democrats. They’re both Kosher, and they’re both out to get you . All you can do is secede .

    • Alexandra1973

      “Thousand points of light” has an occultic meaning.

      No surprise, since members of the Bush family were involved in the Skull and Bones cult.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I’ve read that the Bush family is into satanism and that Barbara Bush is the illegitimate daughter of Aleister Crowley. She looks like him in drag.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      And, Ann’s hero of heroes, Ronald Reagan, signed amnesty in 1986. The difference is, he was duped. Maybe Bush41 was, too. With Reagan, the language was: “I will only sign this if you all agree that this is the very last time”. They agreed. They lied. Ann should drag up those footnotes and preambles, but she doesn’t.

      Bill Maher TKO’d her on that 1986 amnesty topic. It was one of the few times I’ve ever seen Ann Coulter like a deer in the headlights. I really think she needs better handlers. (I’m available, hon……<;-)

      ‘…Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me…’

      Fool me three times??

  • Spartacus

    Oh my God ! Common sense is racist !

  • Bossman

    Ann Coulter is wrong about Australia’s immigration policy. By the way she described it, it sounds similar to Canada’s immigration policy. Such immigration policies, only make it easier for the hordes of East Asia to enter. The USA should go back to the old immigration policy favoring Europe and the Americas.

    • The_Racist_Atheist

      This is one of the few times you’ve actually sounded pro-White.

      • Bossman

        I’m basically pro-white and pro-North American. A lot of the people in this forum would like to fragment North America. That is not the way to go about it.

    • Greg Thomas

      We don’t need any more hordes of poor mexicans in this country.

      • Bossman

        There was a time when they could come and go without much hassles. When there was no quota system for them, they could play by the rules and did not have to wait forever to enter the USA.

        • Pro_Whitey

          There was also a time (not completely ended until 1954) when brown Mexicans had zero chance of becoming U.S. citizens, because the law made naturalized citizenship available only to free white persons. The lack of that rule today, plus the overly expansive view of birthright citizenship currently in effect, makes a huge difference with respect to the rest of our policies.

          • Bossman

            This thing about “free white persons” ended after the Civil War. After that anyone born in the USA or a naturalized immigrant could become a citizen. As I understand it, Mexicans have been classified as white since the 1940s or 50s.

          • http://www.presstitutes.org/ ms_anthro

            Saying “Mexicans are White” is like saying “Americans are White.” Some are, some aren’t. In Mexico, most aren’t.

          • Pro_Whitey

            Incorrect. The Wong Kim Ark case was notable because of its extension of the birthright citizenship clause in a way that some did not think was justified. Also, I can’t recall the name, but there was a case from the 1920s where a Sikh (think Nikki Haley) was determined not to be white and not eligible to be a naturalized citizen. That law was on the books until repealed in 1954.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Ann is very consistent on reversing Hart-Celler 1965. She brings up Hart-Celler 1965 all the time. Here she calls it the Teddy Kennedy Act of 1965 because he was the pandering poodle behind it. Hart-Celler 1965 was devastating.

  • http://nclinksandthinks.wordpress.com/ Roger U

    Raise minimum wage, either through legislation or immigration curbs, and more jobs will go to the third world. If you want wages to go up, you have to have a mechanism in place to prevent production from going overseas.

    • Dave4088

      It’s called the protective tariff.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Tariffs worked great in my lifetime. American manufacturing was never better during the tariff years.

        • Charles W.

          Tariffs have gotten such a bad rap, yet they are the most sensible way to finance government in countries that are actually able to manufacture, like America.

          If you’re going to disincentivize something, disincentivize imports (tariffs). Not productivity (income tax).

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Why is it that you and I get, but no one else?

          • Charles W.

            The universal establishment vitriol against “protectionism” as a dirty word is identical to “racism.” Like “racism,” “protectionism” is common sense. Of course you give business to your countryman first if you can help it instead of sending jobs and capital overseas to build up military rivals like China.

            For a highly interesting talk on tariffs, look up the video “A prophetic interview with James Goldsmith.”

          • AndrewInterrupted

            We are definitely on the same page, brother. I will check it out. Thx.

    • Pro_Whitey

      You are correct that immigration restrictions and trade restrictions have to go hand in hand in order to have the effect of boosting wages. Restricting the supply of labor here will put pressure on moving production abroad, and restricting the supply of foreign goods puts pressure on importing cheap labor. As it is, we currently have insufficient controls in both areas. If I have to choose, I put immigration restriction first, and the eventual replacement of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency will force us into changing our trade policies.

  • NoMosqueHere

    The republicans are terrible. The two 2016 prez frontrunners, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul, are pro amnesty and pro turd world immigration. Of course, Speaker Boner is the same. Who exactly in the republican party speaks for whites?

      That’s why Ann will run for Prez after the Repugs take the Senate in November.

      • Katherine McChesney

        You really believe that Ann Coulter would run for office?

        I like her for her forthrightness on all the issues. She is brave for facing down the liberal idiocy.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          She is becoming more presidential. I think she realizes, 9 books later, that she’s NOT making a sufficient difference. Yes, her estimated net worth is $8.5 million and she could bail on the U.S. and buy a New Zealand citizenship on the south island, immersed in well behaved EuroKiwis, but Ann needs to be in the thick of it. The planets are lining up for her. If the Repugs take the Senate in November, and Hillary is too sick to run (recurring rumor), Ann will be the Republican nominee for 2016. She won’t leave this world without having poked every Liberal on the planet in the eye.

            That and her sense of snark reminds me of someone I know, from the other side of a mirror. I get the feeling that “fearless dominance” and snark come from the same underlying personality trait.

            I remember her first column after McCain picked Sarah Palin as a running mate. Her reaction to the libs whining about her five kids and how that was somehow going to be an impediment to her being Vice-President:

            This means she’s one election, one heartbeat and five abortions away from the Presidency!

          • AndrewInterrupted

            She is a straight shooter. The Left is petrified of her. That is an important first ingredient in the formula for winning the-race-to-the-bottom. Serve up someone they’re terrified of. She would easily mute the feminist squealers. That whole war-on-women angle? Down in flames. And because of Ann’s cloaked, sketchy personal life, she’d have the LGBTQ crowd always guessing and walking on eggshells.

          • Grantland

            The Bisphenol A has given her an Adam’s apple, and a huge pair of balls.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            She actually has an overactive thyroid. When your BMI is that low, all kinds of things start sticking out. Estrogen mimics are more a problem for American men than women. ThomasER916 was making similar comments on it the other day. It’s not just BPA, it’s a whole group of manmade chemicals called estrogen mimics. Another estrogen mimic used for making plastics flexible (water bottles) called nonylphenol is especially bad.

        • PvtCharlieSlate

          She would make a great press secretary for a conservative president.

        Please give Jeff Sessions of Alabama some credit. He seems to get it that immigration policy is intended to replace American workers. I hope he can get the GOP nomination in 2016.

        • NoMosqueHere

          The media loves Jeb and Rand because they are leftists, no different than President Bonehead Hussein. I hope Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III runs, if only to shake up the GOP a bit and receive my vote.

        • MBlanc46

          And he and his ilk are on the hit-list of the Repub establishment.

  • Dave4088

    Most people (excepting liberals) with a basic understanding of economics know that labor scarcity leads to a rise in wages. But thanks to unchecked immigration we now have a massive oversupply of labor similar to overpopulated third world nations.

    Even though Ann is mostly correct, the GOP will not listen to her and have decided to re-brand themselves as tax and spend minority coddlers and proponents of amnesty in a vain attempt to compete with Communist Party USA.

  • MBlanc46

    But the Repubs can’t exploit this issue as the article suggests, since establishment Repubs support immigration at least as enthusiastically as the Dems.

    “In response to the Democrats’ minimum wage proposal, Republicans should introduce a bill ending both legal and illegal immigration until the minimum wage rises naturally to $14 an hour.”

    This is pure genius. Man, I love Ann Coulter.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      And notice how presidential that quote sounds.
      Like someone who actually knows how to lead a country.

  • CalMark

    If Coulter is right, then Republicans must be pretty stupid.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Somebody here described the Mestizo sub-population as a “headless race”.
      The Republican Party is a “headless party”.

    Of course, the reason American workers’ wages are so low in the first place is because of the Democrats’ policies on immigration. Republicans might want to point that out.

    Since the late 1960s, the Democrats have been dumping about a million low-skilled immigrants on the country every year, driving down wages, especially at the lower end of the spectrum.

    - Ann Coulter, VDARE, February 26, 2014

    What Republicans do not want to point out is that the Immigration Reform and Nationality Act of 1965 was voted in favor of in the Senate by 2.16 times as many Republicans as Democrats. In the House of Representatives 3.48 times as many Republicans voted for it as Democrats.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      That was because the Democrats and Republicans switched ideological poles during that time. In Ann’s books she points out that the Democrats consistently voted on the side of the Europeans up until that point. That’s when their poles flipped. The KKK was Democrat, Jim Crow was Democrat, etc.

      LBJ the corrupt, lying turncoat. That’s why PBS turned him into a deity in that crocumentary: American Experience: 1964. I puked out loud. What a steaming pile of revisionist history.

        marxism has nothing to do with mass immigration. Immigration is about depressing wages by flooding the labor supply.

        Was one of marx’s goals to suppress wages?
        Marx was against the corporations.

        Immigration is FOR the corporations.

        I hope you see the difference, but if you cannot see the difference, I have a question for you: What color is the sky in your world?

        • Charles W.

          Marx’s vision was that of a borderless world (“Workers of the world unite!”). According to Marx all social distinctions are arbitrary because they are determined by the means of production, and that includes borders.

        • Grantland

          Marx used convoluted verbiage and base emotional appeal to bewitch the goyim into overthrowing their natural aristocracy and submitting to enslavement. That was the objective all along.

    If we stopped all Immigration Tomorrow, would it help?
    Would it end the threat to Western Cultural Dominance over our own homelands?
    Or would it merely delay or even hasten the inevitable collapse?
    Look at how many children a Hispanic Woman has and how often: 3.2 (4.4 after Reagan’s amnesty) vs. 2.4 in her own homelands, every 17-19 years.
    Vs. a European White Woman who has 1.83 every 32.
    We inflate America’s worth as a ‘Market Destination’ by adding population which makes the rest of the planet, rich selling to us using our own money as the marque of exchange and which we always print more of.
    Remove that edge, stop increasing market indexes with massive junk consumption as rapidly rising populations seek their own American Dream.
    And see how fast the American Dream implodes. After which, our money won’t be worth toilet paper, no matter how much we print.
    Republicans gerrymander their districts. Democrats gerrymander the world.
    But nobody wants the music to stop because the number of empty chairs at the table of global economics is restricted but not exclusive to U.S. economic health. China will take over from any U.S. collapse and when that happens, as a function of normalizing currencies on the Renminbi, the USD will crash hard regardless.
    If we could talk about race openly, as a greater good or goal than simply the High Life of living on a constant diet of Chinese Food (manufactured goods, debt economics) we would be in a position to hold BOTH parties accountable for destroying The Nation (From the Latin ‘Nascere’: to be born) as a treason beyond economics.
    But so long as misunderstanding and fear of the latter rules, people will continue to live in terror of losing what they have vs. living with what comes after, when they already have.
    Imagine a Post U.S. America: 35% of the population is poor Hispanic, used to taking what they want because that’s how it was in the old country. They have a median age under 25, and so are well able to support their needs through attrition. Blacks are what blacks always are: chaos and destruction as living entropy. And whites are 50% over 40, 60% obese and less than 10% combat experienced veterans.
    There are 300 million of us and 15 days of ready food. If it can be brought in to distribution outlets which people can reach using 60 days of Strategic Petroleum Reserves whose totals were set around a 1970s consumption standard.
    Where evolution is a Genetic Algorithm survival strategy, protected by terrain isolates and unique social and environmental adaptations, smaller groups whose affinity is one of comfortable mating and social habits will survive. But only if they are not so small as to be overrun in that first month when the rest form a mass population migration threat in the millions sufficient to steam roller everything. Like locusts.
    If you can’t talk race in politics, at least talk consequences after politics no longer matter. And let that awareness drive your private consciousness to decide where and with whom you wish to stand.

      This equation is often represented as a ‘fertility’ issue. It’s a subsidy issue. If a Mexican woman can get Uncle Sam to pay for her family, she will have as many as possible–and does.

      If Uncle Sam will allow a Cambodian woman to game the Refugee Status system, and pay large amounts of federal money for having 3 kids, she will have 3 kids. Then when she can’t milk those three (they are older than 18), she will have a couple more when she’s in her late 30s/early 40s. Now she has 5 kids.

      If a white man knows, if he misses child support payments, that he’ll go to jail he will offer his seed less often. This is seen as ‘low fertility’. It’s actually a response to institutionalized white genocide. The U.S. government is subsidizing white genocide.

    from the vdare article:
    “Since the late 1960s, the Democrats have been dumping about a million
    low-skilled immigrants on the country every year, driving down wages,
    especially at the lower end of the spectrum. ”

    That’s a lie. What about when the GOP controlled both the white house and the congress?

    Bush did.

    And yet bush was far less strict on businesses that used illegals. As cited in a recent article right here on amren, the obama administration has fined businesses hiring illegals far far more than bush.

    And Bush said in an interview that mexicans were in texas because texans don’t want to lay tar in august.

    Romney stood up before america just last fall during the debates and proudly trumpted his support for immigration.

    One huge problem with america is that the elites have captured the minds of huge numbers of americans who are now locked into supporting either the GOP or Dem parties and can literally see no evil as far as their own party is concerned.

      And absolutely refuse to consider that we don’t need either party, or that both parties are arms of the same globalist monster that seeks to destroy us all.

  • emiledurk16

    Agree. These are the gullible lemmings who, (despite knowing in their deepest bones that we are right,) want to be seen as moral exemplars and be on the winning side. (even if it means the weakening of one’s racial survival). These whites are our enemies and I have zero empathy for them.

  • DelmarJackson

    Does no one realize how incredible this article is by Coulter? She actually raises the forbidden subject of an immigration moratorium and places the blame for low wages in large part due to massive decades long immigration. This article should not be stuffed down the rabbit hole, it should be a call to action. It is political and cultural dynamite.

    An immigration moratorium means higher wages for all.

      Thank you. Nitpicking little facts is not going to help us. Her main point is exactly right and we finally have someone with a little influence telling the truth.

      This article is important because it gives a good economic reason for doing what we want to do anyway (halt the third world infestation). It’s a reason that non-Xenophobes can understand and support.

        You should see all these knee-jerking weenies over at the Daily Caller bunching their panties on this issue. All these Nobel Laureates living under overpasses chiming in. What a bunch fools. Slurping the bow-tie boy’s Kool-Aid.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    It depends on your perspective. Your view of the battlefield.

    My perspective? We went from a race to be the best, to a-race-to-the-bottom. Who better could guide European Americans on how to win a race-to-the-bottom? It’s foreign to our DNA. Only someone from the gutter could teach us. Saul Alinsky taught our enemies from his gutter. Now we have his playbook.

    Think dirty like them–then dirtier.

    Using the ‘compared to silver’ metric is yet another way of showing how bad the American cost of living situation has deteriorated. I used a similar common sense metric when debating with a person. I pointed out that the minimum wage in 1975 was $2.31 an hour. Gas (a staple) was roughly 60 cents a gallon. So, a minimum wage worker was paid 4 gallons of gas per hour. Now he is paid 2 gallons of gas per hour. So, $14 would bring it back to 1975 levels.

    • MikeofAges

      One of my relatives observed once: “The price of oil is the the price of everything else.” The price of a gallon of gas is as good a metric today as an ounce of gold or an ounce of silver was in earlier ages.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Yeah, it’s a staple like bread. Bread was the thing that caused Marie Antoinette to lose her head.

        They claim she didn’t actually say: “Let them eat cake”…They believe the quote came from another female royal, the wife of Louis XIV.

        But, I think historians at least agree that Marie lost her head for misjudging the peoples’ pain.

    Idiot. Raising minimum wage won’t do anything but raise the cost of everything. They’ll still be in the same situation, their standard of living won’t rise.

  • Grantland

    The very idea of a minimum wage is a bizarre, Kafkaesque misunderstanding of reality.

    • zombiekiller117

      So I’m living in a ‘Kafkaesque misunderstanding of reality’ ? Paying people enough to live on works out fine here in Australia.
      I suppose though that having to pay a high minimum wage does encourage employers to hire hard working White people rather than 3rd World immigrants.

  • Grantland

    Lemmings are too effortlessly swayed by the mass media, thus making Democracy obsolete. I favour a rigid Constitution with strictly enumerated seperation of economy and state; with the military sworn to depose any leader that comes close to breaking that constitution. A universal secular tithe to fund the courts, police, military. Period.

    Ann Coulter is entering the last phase of the anti-White sleep cycle; she’s just about to wake-up, I wager, but unfortunately for her nation, it is still the dead of night. . .

    Europe is in another time zone though, and I believe there the dawn is just about to break. . .
