Hope at Twilight

This photograph (bigger image) shows us a twilight view of the beautiful new billboard put up by our members in Florida. On today's program, Mr. Strom details not only the efforts of proud and decent Whites to build community and hope, but also the increasing acceptance of racial ideas in the academic and scientific communities.

Whites reach out with pride and competence to build a new consciousness; science quantifies racial interests and loyalties.

IMAGINE IT IS TWILIGHT as you travel down the expressway on your way to Tampa. The sunset has just passed and gold fire still illuminates the western sky. Lights are beginning to come on and the birds are flocking together, singing their evening songs, looking for a place to rest after another day of the joy and struggle of life.

The illumination of the billboards you pass on the highway is just barely detectable as the light fades, giving the ads a subtle glow as you go by: Holiday Inn hawks its dinners where "kids eat free" with an image of a Black boy with his arm around a White girl, both smiling broadly. British Petroleum promises clean restrooms and the largest possible selection of junk food. The next sign proclaims, "Gentlemen's Club next exit, XXX adult toys." Another clearly implies that those who drink a particular brand of whiskey will become irresistible to the opposite sex. Across the way we see the beaming smiles of the multiracial local TV news team, none of whom had ever lived in the area prior to being recruited by the faceless New York corporation that employs them. A line on the billboard promotes their coverage of the games of the local professional basketball team, nearly all of whose members were also recruited from distant cities -- or African tribes -- and whose owners soak up local money to swell their counting houses elsewhere.

In the distance, another billboard, set apart from the rest, comes slowly into focus. It shows a lovely White woman seated in a field of flowers. She has no Black arm around her. She is part of no multiracial "team." Her fair skin is softly shining in the lights as you get closer. She is the image of natural beauty, innocence, wholesomeness. You notice she bears the symbol of life on her simple White dress. The message, too, is simple: "News. For us. For a change." And then the url of our news site,, in letters thirty feet across. Different enough and intriguing enough to get people to visit -- our kind of people. Our people.

There are few greater thrills than to come over the rise on the expressway at twilight and see our billboard there, dominating the horizon. It's a statement for White community and White media that cannot be ignored. The painting of the White woman, entitled Life's Spring, is by the sensitive and talented artist Alfred Sundvall, whose work I have featured before as National Vanguard magazine cover art and as the CD and cassette cover art for the music album Call of the Blood by Dresden. And the billboard has definitely increased our Web traffic -- we are getting a very noticeable increase in letters at the site from people who had never heard about us before, and from the tone of the letters, there's a real demand for the stereotype-shattering news and commentary and fiction and poetry and art that we offer.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of local activists, there are currently three billboards spreading our message of hope and community for White people, sponsored by National Vanguard members in Florida, Utah, and Nevada.

Our Las Vegas billboard, which reads "Stop Immigration," was initially a victim of Jewish censorship efforts. Jewish groups put heavy pressure on Clear Channel Communications, the sign company, to take the billboard down in violation of our contract -- and they initially succeeded. (A similar campaign, which included terroristic threats and severe harassment against one of our billboard providers in Florida, occurred last year.) Local NV activists went to court and demanded that the contract be honored, and the billboard company was required to re-erect our sign, which they did a few weeks ago. But now the billboard is down again -- we believe temporarily. Ultimately failing in their efforts to censor through the billboard company itself, the censors instead targeted the businesses located directly under and near the sign: A report on Las Vegas television station KVBC states that:

"The billboard is blamed for vandalism at nearby businesses. Those store owners said they were unfairly linked to the message above their businesses."

There's every reason to believe that the vandals had as their ultimate aim the removal of the billboard. There's every reason to believe that the vandals are the same would-be censors whose initial intimidation efforts failed. In this they will ultimately fail, too -- because the sign company is required by court order to fulfill its contract, which means that even if pressure or threats of legal action by the local business owners -- who ought to be suing the censorship and vandalism crowd, not the sign company -- caused the billboard to go down on this street, by law it must be re-erected in a location equally or even more desirable. And the news coverage spreads our message of hope -- and our contact information -- farther than ever. Thanks to everyone, friend and foe, who made all this possible!

In our next issue of V newspaper, we'll be talking about some very important issues and ideas, issues and ideas which we must understand if we are going to be effective stewards of the next generation of White children. We'll be taking a look at a new book by Frank Salter which has launched a startling new concept in the academic and scientific worlds -- that of "ethnic genetic interests." Brilliant writer Michael Polignano will review the work of Dr. Salter, and how it meshes with an enlightened understanding of White nationalism, community, and survival. Let me give you a brief preview of what Mr. Polignano has to say:

'Salter states that all living things have "genetic interests," namely, each life form has an interest in passing its genes on to the next generation. ...self-sacrificial altruistic behavior towards family and extended family can increase one's own genetic representation in future generations. In other words, under certain circumstances an animal can protect its genetic interests through altruistic behavior even if that behavior hurts the animal's own chances of reproductive success. Salter ventures into new territory by applying this concept to ethnic groups (or "ethnies," the term Salter prefers) whose members share much of their genes. Ethnic kinship thus becomes a natural extension of family kinship.

'One does not require extensive genealogical histories to measure kinship between two individuals: kinship can be quantitatively assessed through gene assay data. ...It's worth pointing out that the frequently-cited objection that pure races don't exist due to population admixture does not invalidate the concept of ethnic genetic interests. As long as average differences in gene frequencies exist between ethnies, distinct ethnic genetic interests exist.

'Births and deaths that occur within one's immediate family have a tremendous emotional impact, but the gradual decline of a race due to low birthrates and nonviolent immigration of foreigners does not. Salter gives these losses greater emotional reality by equating them with the loss of specific numbers of children or siblings. Salter explains that these losses are not merely symbolic, nor are they diminished by being spread across an entire ethnic group. The loss applies to every randomly-chosen member of the ethny: "for a native woman it is equivalent to the loss of her children and grandchildren, for a native man it is equivalent to the loss of his children and grandchildren." The same holds true for every member of the ethny. Accordingly, Salter argues that ethnic genetic interests are much larger than familial genetic interests.

'Salter notes that Englishmen and Danes, though the genetic distance between the two populations is not great, are nonetheless distinct. He calculates that if 10,000 Danes were to take the place of 10,000 Englishmen, the loss of genetic interests to the English would be equivalent to losing 167 English children (or siblings). Numerically speaking, the replacement of 10,000 Englishmen with 10,000 Danes is a loss of 10,000 Englishmen. Genetically speaking, it is a loss of only 167, because Danes are genetically similar to the English, so most of the English genes lost are shared by the Danes who replace them. Salter is not claiming that each and every Englishman loses the genetic equivalent of 167 children or siblings, but that the English people as a whole lose this number. Yet each and every Englishman is related to those who are lost. If, however, 10,000 Bantu immigrants replaced 10,000 Englishmen, the genetic equivalent of 10,854 English children or siblings would be lost. How does the loss due to replacement exceed the number of those replaced? Salter explains, "Some ethnies are so different genetically that they amount to negative stores of those distinct genes."

'Salter shows that interracial immigration is most damaging to ethnic genetic interests: "It requires only 1.1 African immigrants to depress the European genetic interest by the equivalent of one child (or vice versa). But it takes 59.9 Danish immigrants to have the same effect on the English population, or 27 Polish immigrants on Germans, or 42 English immigrants on Irish (and all vice versa)." Regarding America, "Americans of European and African descent have lost, and are losing, the equivalent of millions of children due to post-1965 immigration." Salter also examines the effects of racial intermarriage on genetic interests. He starts with J. P. Rushton's Genetic Similarity Theory ("GST") which states that marriage within one's ethnic group is adaptive because the children that result share more than 50 percent of their parent's distinctive gene varieties (or "alleles"). This is because parents within the same ethny have many distinctive alleles in common. The theory also proposes that parents of the same ethny may treat their children better than parents in mixed marriages, because the biological similarity of parent and child leads to more intimate bonding. Salter then analyzes how much more related a parent will be to his children if he marries within his ethny rather than outside of it. An Englishman who marries an Englishwoman instead of a Danish woman only gains a one percent greater relatedness to his offspring, but would be 92 percent more related to his offspring if the rejected potential spouse were a Bantu. That is to say, marrying within his ethny means his children will carry 92 percent more of his genes than they would if he married a Bantu.

"After laying the scientific groundwork for ethnic genetic interests, Salter discusses their ethical and political implications. He writes, "It is parents' duty to care for their children. Do we have a similar duty to nurture our ethnies? . . . When ethnic competition is high, as is the case in competition between members of different races, failure to show ethnic loyalty is the genetic equivalent of betraying a child or a grandchild." He argues that "it would be prudent for a population to defend its most precious collective interest-distinctive genes carried by the ethny-with the most powerful means at its disposal." Yet to date, "no state yet developed has reliably kept its promise as an adaptive ethnic group strategy."'

Clearly, the idea of the state as the guardian of the genetic heritage of its people is a radical idea -- and the fundamental idea behind our Cause. It is extremely significant that this concept is gaining ground in the scientific community. Mr. Polignano's review is thorough and extensive, and covers Mr. Salter's ideas in critical detail. You won't want to miss it.

Also in upcoming issues, you'll find a new piece by Robert J. Sullivan detailing how the Politically Correct censors and Jewish supremacists came to power in the academy during the 20th century. There are many lessons for us in his story of the "Frankfurt School," a think tank and incubator for almost every destructive idea used against the White West in the last 50 years. If you want to understand how the Jewish supremacists undermined the West, the fraudulent nature of their "movements," and create new strategies for White empowerment, you'll want to read Mr. Sullivan's article. Here's a sample:

'[W]hy does Marxism survive? Part of the answer is found in the Frankfurt School. The legacy of this Institute is one that is effecting disastrous foundational change in America on a continual basis. To better understand the destructive influence of this "school" and the artificial pearls of wisdom it cast into the world, it is necessary to inquire of the conscious subversives that conceived the Institute, and review its purpose, output and subsequent movement in the Western world....

'In 1922, Kurt Albert Gerlach, close friend of Richard Sorge (later a Soviet spy) and co-attendee with Weil, of the Marxist Study Week(s), was offered a professorship at Frankfurt University along with an opportunity to found, with Weil, an institute that would focus on "scientific Marxism." Gerlach, himself a left-wing Social Democrat, assumed the task of presenting to the University the Marxist pill he and Weil wanted them to swallow. In a letter to the University, Gerlach only casually mentions Marxism, buried in the context of "�social life in its broadest sense." Through the agency of this letter, Gerlach translates the principles and methodology of Marxism into "Democratic" sounding terms and succeeds in duping the University into accepting his proposal. However, the crucial factor in ensuring Weil and Gerlach the success and independence they coveted was the leverage afforded them by Weil's father endowing the University with the necessary funds for such a venture. These champions of "scientific" inquiry sought not only the prestige of the University's influence for the work that would flow from an institute affiliated with it, they sought to be unaccountable to it at the same time. ...At a time when the German mark was rapidly approaching four trillion to the dollar, Hermann Weil agreed to finance the building and equipping of the Institute. Additionally, he would ensure a substantial yearly grant to it, supply a lower floor to the Faculty of Economics and Social Science and fund the Chair that the Institute's director would hold. Thus was the Society for Social Research incorporated...

"What a large percentage of the population does not realize is that a major component in the workings of Marxism is one of "what will move the revolution forward." Even programs, policies or individuals that fail, or that have only limited use can still serve this dictum. Failure is not the point. Mediocrity is not the point. Even if a plan fails or a person is of limited use, either can be replaced or re-engineered for the presentation of another plan that is closer to the Marxist ideal than the opposing entity. This is the Marxist principle of compromise. When the input of an individual is unworkable it can still serve to enable others to revise it so it more closely resembles the ideology which is the underlying driving force. In contradistinction to Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes' statement that: "Revolutions are not made by men in spectacles," [the Institute's director], Horkheimer, knew better and he was in the process of proving it. He and his colleagues were not bomb throwing anarchists. The good Justice, also, had forgotten Lev Davidovich Bronstein (a.k.a., Leon Trotsky). Holding a doctorate in Literature, [Institute alumnus and intellectual guru of the New Left] Herbert Marcuse would be instrumental in force fitting Marxist distortions onto almost anything existing in Western literature. He was inducted into the Institute in 1933. In one of the more humorous historical ironies, Marcuse, a Jew, had been an assistant to Martin Heidegger, who was later revealed to have been a closet supporter of the National Socialists. Marcuse, promoted by the press as a "giant" of the "intelligentsia" was destined to pollute the academic, intellectual gene pool in the United States to a negative extent that was only exceeded by the height of his true insignificance. The Left has an uncanny ability for immortalizing the inane.'

As you read this in-depth exposé of the inner workings of the conscious subverters of the intellectual integrity and scholarly traditions of the West, you will come to understand that, whatever their political affiliations and variations, underneath it all is an ethnic consciousness and solidarity, the inner identity-feeling which has given us Jewish supremacism. The same ethnic consciousness that gave us the Marxist critique of the Old America and undermined its biological and intellectual foundations is the same ethnic consciousness that makes the New America they have built the conqueror of subject peoples under the banner of neoconservatism. Remember the Leftist and even overtly Trostkyist roots of the neocons who now run Washington. The common threads between a Herbert Marcuse a Paul Wolfowitz are there for all to see -- in Robert Sullivan's article on the Frankfurt School.
