August 18, 2022 Is Virginia Dare’s 435th Birthday, And The Historic American Nation Is Still Here

James Fulford writes: August 18, 2022, is Virginia Dare’s 435th birthday. She was born in the Lost Colony of Roanoke, North Carolina. This map of the Roanoke colony from a 1966 history book, by an author born in 1896:

In 1585 [Sir Walter] Raleigh established a colony at Roanoke Island, off the North Carolina coast (left). The sunken ships in this sketch by John White, the first governor, indicate the dangers of this coast, which contains the dreaded Cape Hatteras. White was the grandfather of Virginia Dare, the first child born to English parents in the New World. To this day no one knows what happened to her and the colonists who disappeared.

I happenened to be looking at this book because I was collecting pre-Woke history books for a homeschool project. In 1966, when I was very young, you got pre-Woke history books in public schools, in which settlers were the good guys, and the Indians were frequently the bad guys. Now the history being taught in schools is all anti-white, and we have to teach history to our children ourselves.

However, the history is still true, and people are teaching it to their children.

The article below is substantially what we post on Virginia Dare's last birthday.

Virginia Dare, after whom VDARE.com is named, was the first child of English parents born in what is now the United States of America, on August 18th in 1587. She may be considered the foremother of the Historic American Nation, which is not descended from such rival claimants for the title of First Child as Snorri Porfinnsson  (allegedly born in “Vinland” in the eleventh century) and Martin De Arguelles,  born in a part of New Spain which is now St. Augustine, Florida. They were earlier, but they were not what America today is descended from—culturally.

As a settler in a land full of what Thomas Jefferson would later refer to as “the merciless Indian Savages, whose known Rule of Warfare, is an undistinguished Destruction, of all Ages, Sexes and Conditions,” Virginia Dare was a white minority.

And as far as we know, she, and her whole family, were either massacred or enslaved by local Indians.

VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow wrote in 1999, when he founded VDARE.com, that

I have always been fascinated by the story of Virginia Dare. She was the first English child to be born in the New World, in August 1587, shortly after the founding of what was to become known as “The Lost Colony” on Roanoke Island off the North Carolina coast. It says something about the mettle of those settlers that any pregnant woman would cross the Atlantic, the equivalent of a lunar expedition at that time—and Virginia’s mother Elenor was no less than the daughter of John White, the colony’s governor.

Perhaps you have to have a daughter yourself to appreciate what White must have felt three years later,

Republicans, can you stop screaming like hyenas at every little indignity suffered by our former president? Donald Trump wouldn’t lift a finger to help you.

Yes, it was asinine for the FBI to stage a raid on Mar-a-Lago when we all know the only documents Trump wanted were his letters and photos with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. (North Korea has nukes. See? “Nuclear documents.”) Trump needs those for his scrapbook, to accompany the photos of him with Kim Kardashian, Mark Zuckerberg and Sean Hannity.

Still, the raid isn’t going to affect your life. It barely affected Trump’s. He was golfing in New Jersey at the time.

You want to be mad at the FBI? This is why you should be angry. Rather than fight crime, the agency has turned itself into the wingman for “Defund the Police.” That could get you and your family killed.

Consider how they treated the cops in Louisville, Kentucky, who risked their lives trying to serve a search warrant on a major fentanyl dealer’s moll, Breonna Taylor, on March 13, 2020. The true story

See, earlier, Lew Rockwell And The Strange Death (Or At Least Suspended Animation) Of Paleolibertarianism

Ron Paul’s heroic but failed presidential runs in 2008 and 2012 were something of a Libertarian moment [#StandwithRand: The Libertarian moment has arrived – thanks to Rand Paul, by Justin Raimondo, AntiWar.com, March 8, 2013]. But that moment ended when Paul lost, and by 2016, with the Rise of Trump, no longer defined political debate. The Great Replacement via a mass invasion of legal immigrants and illegal aliens, the Middle Eastern refugee crisis, and the Great Awokening showed many on the Right, including right-leaning Libertarians, the importance of maintaining public order, not least at the border, as opposed to pursuing “liberty” at all costs. Which invites a question: Is the recent takeover of the Libertarian Party by the “Mises Caucus” a sign of a reemerging Paleolibertarian Right?

The question is important, particularly in light of what, in 2008, VDARE.com called the “the strange death of Paleolibertarianism.” In the late 1980s, we reported, Libertarian leaders Lew Rockwell, the founder of the Mises Institute, and Murray Rothbard, the famous anarcho-Libertarian economist,  “broke with the Establishment of the Libertarian movement represented by the Cato Institute and Libertarian Party.” After that break, the Rothbard-Rockwell Report newsletter espoused politically incorrect positions on everything from race and IQ to policing and VDARE.com’s signature issue, immigration [Why the Koch Brothers Went After Murray Rothbard, by David Gordon, LewRockwell.com, March 10, 2011].

Rothbard further distanced himself from acceptable Libertarianism during the 1990s by embracing paleoconservatives such as Pat Buchanan and Sam Francis [Buchanan an Anti-Semite? It’s a Smear: His enemies labored hard, and brought forth a pitiful mouse, by Murray N. Rothbard, Los Angeles Times, January 6, 1992].

But after Rothbard died prematurely at the age of 68 in 1995, communist thugs attacked Ron Paul for advancing race and immigration realism in his newsletter—most likely Rockwell’s work, which Paul disavowed—and the Mises Institute founder

Nine years ago, I warned readers about ”eyelock biometric readers” adopted by Florida schools to track them on buses. Under the guise of fighting guns and vaping, countless schools this year are now installing surveillance sensors in bathrooms that can spy and record students’ alleged ”aggression” and red-flag ”spoken key words.”

Eight years ago, I warned readers about a company called Teaching Strategies Gold that created an ”early childhood assessment system” for ”social emotional, physical, language and cognitive development” that documents student behaviors with videos, audio files, journals and photos—which are then uploaded to a central database cloud. In Jefferson County, Colorado, TS Gold was used to monitor and shape preschoolers’ bathroom trips, hand-washing habits and other ”socially acceptable behavior.”

See, earlier, by James Fulford: ”Actually, There Has Always Been Migration—But In Those Days They Called It Invading!

  • The Irish Have Georgia On Their Mind

With illegal immigration into Britain increasing exponentially via the beaches of Kent, it is assumed that illegals crossing Europe see England, and London in particular, as their destination [Channel Migrants—Crossing Number in 2021 Triple 2020’s Figure, BBC News, January 4, 2022]. But emigrants from one eastern European country, Georgia, increasingly want to go one step further and start a new life in the Emerald Isle [Surge in Georgians requesting asylum raises fears the country could lose its visa-free travel status in Europe , by Daniel McLaughlin, Irish Times, July 30, 2022].

New arrivals in Ireland from Georgia sought “protection” there in June at almost 1,000% the rate they did in January, and those six-month figures were twice those for all of last year. These new Irishmen and women—although they will be almost all men—are undoubtedly inspired by the Ukrainian mini-exodus to Éire, to give the country its Gaelic name, and now outnumber asylum seekers from that war-torn country. The problem: in contrast to Ukraine, Georgia is not a war-torn country.

Designated a “safe country of origin” under Ireland’s 2015 International Protection Act, Georgia will be offered membership in the European Union pending internal reforms. Given that EU membership is a jackpot for poorer eastern European countries—and one of the EU’s roles is transferring wealth from western to eastern Europe—why do so many Georgians still want to flee to the other end of the continent?

This was the question asked by Charlie Flanagan, of Ireland’s Fine Gael political party. It transpires that one of the required internal reforms is Georgia preventing its people from visiting Europe as tourists under visa-free travel that Georgians enjoy, then skipping off to seek asylum the way old Soviet defectors did. So Georgians are leaving now because their government will soon stop them being able to do so.

But why Ireland? Is it the Guinness, the colleens, the Rugby Union, a love of James Joyce?

Ireland is in an odd position. It borders Northern Ireland, notoriously a part of the United Kingdom (see the 1970s, the IRA, the Troubles, etc.), but Ireland itself is not a part of Great Britain. It is, however, an enthusiastic member of the European Union.

Welcome to Schengen. The Schengen agreement guarantees unlimited visa-free movement within the EU and was sold to Europeans as border-hopping liberty. In fact, if it had been specifically tailored to allow migrants to roam about until they find a welfare system that best suits their financial requirements, it is difficult to see what would have been done differently.
