Counterfeit America Manufactures Counterfeit Citizens

There are two nations inhabiting the United States of America: the original, heritage America and “counterfeit America.” This is the name I hope to stick to the rival nation engaged in a full-scale assault on the cultural inheritance of the actual American nation: tearing down statues of America’s historical leaders, sullying them in the history books, and marginalizing their intellectual and actual descendants. 

While counterfeit America rises, heritage Americans are displaced and marginalized by the twin projects of unregulated mass migration and manufactured narratives created and controlled by counterfeit America’s cultural institutions: media, education, entertainment, and tech (what I have previously called the “MEET Complex”). Counterfeit America wins with counterfeit citizenship and counterfeit culture.

It works quite nicely. Natural-born citizens are now embracing the culture of death and impotence to such a degree that the birthrate of these citizens remains below replacement (this applies to all American demographic groups) while a steady stream of aliens are imported and minted “Americans” by the leaders of counterfeit America through open borders laws, lax immigration enforcement, and administrative subterfuge

According to Pew Research, “Between 1965 and 2015, new immigrants, their children and their grandchildren accounted for 55% of U.S. population growth. They added 72 million people to the nation’s population as it grew from 193 million in 1965 to 324 million in 2015.”

The framers of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act (which marks its 55th anniversary this month) told us none of this would ever happen. The late Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) promised while the bill was debated before Congress: “Our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same . . . Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset . . . It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”

These promises all ended up being lies of varying degrees.

Since 1965, the demographic mix of the country has permanently altered, so much so that Progressive Liberals have filled reams of paper in articles and books celebrating it as the harbinger of a permanent one-party state for decades to come.

Kennedy promised that the standards of admission for newcomers to our land would not be relaxed. Following the 1924 Johnson-Reed Act, no more than 320,000 immigrants were ever admitted to the United States in a single year. Because of the 1965 law and its aftermath, the yearly number rose dramatically year over year and now averages over 1 million people

Immigrants today are nearly 14 percent of the total population in the United States—equal to the immigration tsunami that swept the nation after the Civil War. The difference, of course, the late 19th century immigration wave occurred within a much more cohesive native culture that still venerated the Founding and was supported by a robust native-born birth rate.

It’s hard to imagine “We’re-A-Nation-Of-Immigrants” ideologues echoing the advice President Theodore Roosevelt offered to the last wave of immigrants about what was expected of them should they wish to become Americans. The immigrant, Roosevelt said,

must not bring in his Old-World religious, race, and national antipathies, but must merge them into love for our common country, and must take pride in the things which we can all take pride in. He must revere only our flag; not only must it come first, but no other flag should even come second. He must learn to celebrate Washington’s birthday rather than that of the Queen or Kaiser.

In counterfeit America, the descendants of those who built America and have deep family roots of the mind, heart, and spirit must instead assimilate to the new matrix being erected in our country. Now heritage Americans are told they must scorn the flag and sheepishly ignore Washington’s birthday rather than celebrate it.

What would our ancestors think if they were living to see what is happening?

Contrary to Senator Kennedy’s promises, low-skilled native born Americans lost their jobs to immigrant displacement. Their opportunity to advance was halted by the disintegration of unions and the cratering wages which go hand in glove with union decline. 

One of the major causal factors of this change is the dramatically expanded labor pool. Between 1945 and 1965, the percentage of working Americans belonging to labor unions stayed at around 25 percent of the total workforce. Today, less than 12 percent of Americans belong to a labor union. The private sector’s share of unionized labor is barely above 6 percent

Private sector labor union density is almost back to where it was before the 1930s. With the loss of union jobs comes the loss of union wages. When union density declines, income and wealth inequality increase because workers lose the right to bargain for better wages and instead live in the libertarian economic state of nature, a continuous wage race to the bottom. It isn’t incidental that documents leaked from Amazon and Whole Foods show they value the “diversity” of their workforce in order to prevent union formation or that major S&P 500 companies like Google, Apple, Amazon (again), and Tesla support mass migration. It supports the interests of their own bottom lines to do so.

Finally, the vast majority of aliens move to major urban areas. Eighty-five percent of immigrants, according to one study, live in the top 100 metropolitan areas of the United States (these areas are where 66 percent of the total population of the United States resides). Contradicting the promises of the 1965 lawmakers, immigrants disproportionately did move to the cities. They still do.

Now recall that 48 of the 50 largest American cities had riots in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

In other words, most immigrants move to areas where the dominant social and cultural force is that created by counterfeit America. Let me explain in greater detail.

These metropolitan areas are the institutional strongholds of the Democratic Party and the leftist occupiers who pull the levers of power in the MEET Complex. So while more than a million immigrants are brought to this country every year, they and their children are inundated with Progressive liberal media on their televisions and smartphones, leftist education that they receive in the public schools and universities, leftist entertainment from their favorite athletes and in their favorite songs and movies, and leftist tech programming of search results that conditions them to see the history of those who lived here before them as worthy of demolition. 

How many become fully assimilated counterfeit Americans like Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.)? Based on voting patterns, a near supermajority of first and second generation immigrants will vote for Democrats. Generation Z (and their older Millennial counterparts) are the least patriotic of the generations living in the United States. They have the least amount of buy-in to heritage America of all the generations living in this country.

Not so when it comes to beliefs in counterfeit America. Major parts of Generation Z and the Millennials report the strongest belief in the Black Lives Matter movement and even support for literal Communism.

This isn’t the fault of the immigrants directly; most have no direct interest in getting carried along with the cultural revolution sweeping this country. And to those many who end up voting for Democrats, it is often merely incidental to the conditions I described above. But this is what happens when a country’s cultural institutions are usurped and captured by a counterfeit version of itself which is determined to displace and eventually dominate the heritage nation.

What is the meaning of this?

Were any of us actually consulted about who moves to our country?

Why don’t we have repeated bi-yearly national referenda where the American people themselves—rather than the plutocrats who control the Chamber of Commerce wing of the GOP and the Democratic Party and their candidate for president—get to decide directly about how many immigrants are allowed here and in what manner we will receive newcomers to the legitimate American nation?

Until this phenomenon is named and halted, new “Americans” will continue to be manufactured like Nike shoes and the legitimate American nation, heritage America, will gradually become submerged by the domination of counterfeit America.

  1. Of course the solution to this was evident to those of us who actively opposed the fraud-filled 1986 General Amnesty signed by Ronald Reagan. I was barely old enough to vote, but it was easy to understand what would result. Guess what? It did result from that. Suicide rates among white men 25-64 in the U.S. are skyrocketing and have risen for years. Now ask yourself how much your “representative” cares about that? The most amazing thing to me is all of the people doing this ARE white men. Look at the tax-exempt groups they join: Partnership for a New American Economy,, Chambers of Commerce, etc….

    Try posting “Immigration Moratorium NOW” on any “conservative” website. Observe what happens. So-called heritage Americans are brainwashed to believe immigration is a right, and that immigrants built America. Anyone who denounces counterfeit Americans is simultaneously a bigot, a racist, not a “genuine” American for embracing his own history and culture above others. Being lectured by Ramjathapur Anipul and his 97 village idiot “relatives” (can we at least agree to STOP CHAIN MIGRATION?) from Backwardistan that, “I’ll decide what it means to BE American” is the final insult. Congress will NOT expel Ilhan Omar – one of the most public, egregious flouters of immigration law to take up space in this country!

    In 2006, we again spent days emailing, telephoning our “representatives” (I don’t know what that IS any longer!) to stop the 2006 Comprehensive Amnesty supported by the cokehead milquetoast moron prezzie, George Bush. Voting RepubliCON has only and ever assisted counterfeit Americans. During my lifetime, RepubliCONS have NEVER once supported ANY legislation which actually improves conditions for their base of voters. One only need look at their VOTING RECORDS ON ANY IMMIGRATION BILL. Now, they bury their treason in omnibus spending bills and it’s even more difficult to figure out what they’re doing. In true Orwellian fashion, Transparency is Obfuscation! Witness the latest: H.R. 1044 passed with majority RepubliCON support and EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICON SENATOR SUPPORTS PASSAGE OF S.386, THE MOST OFFENSIVE AMERICAN JOB-KILLING LEGISLATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY! So, don’t even speak of “voting Republican majorities into office” as the answer to ANY of this!

    I am hopeful that the message of an immigration moratorium – a flat out net zero moratorium is catching on, but I fear it’s too late. No President during my lifetime has ever conducted widespread immigration enforcement or large deportation efforts. No Congress is willing to buck Wall Street + Little Mumbai (Silicon Valley). Every RepubliCON or Demoncrat answers his money masters’ call. If the counterfeit Americans continue to usurp the rights of heritage Americans as they are now doing, the only possible solution will be secession.

    • I’ve been saying ever since Donald J Trump escorted Melania down the escalator that as president, if he destroys the Democratic Party first, then the Republican one, he will go down as greater than all previous presidents combined with the exception of George Washington.

      And, Alecto, you are right and I am far madder at the RepubliCONS than the Democrat Communists who had clearly told me they were not my friends. I don’t even consider the Marxists as anything but my enemy, in “the wire” yes, subverting the public/private institutions, yes.
      I do consider the RepubliCONS as worse than my enemy, they are TRAITORS who claimed to be my friends.

  2. I do believe limited, targeted immigration at a lower level is a good compromise, along the lines of what Trump has proposed. As the economy grows, and considering low native birth rates, some new workers will be needed. Having said that, your other points (Comment above) about money controlling politics has a lot of truth in it. The ridiculous way that Congress deals with issues via Omnibus bills and pork-barreling is staggeringly wasteful and corrupt. One of the very best things that Congress/the States could pass and implement is a Presidential Line-item Veto authority. Not sure what would be required, I’m thinking another Constitutional Amendment… perhaps at some point the US can have another Constitutional convention of States to effectively address some major needs in the founding documents, this being one of the major ones…

  3. I have been reading Saint Augustine’s, City of God where he provides a scathing critique of Roman culture. By Augustine’s time in late Antiquity the Greco-Roman culture was well on its way to forgetting itself as Christian culture was beginning to lay the foundation for the rise of Christian Western Civilization.

    In the very near future, we will see whether America, the crown jewel of Christian Western Civilization, remembers enough of itself to keep from being driven into the rotten death pit of Bolshevik Marxism.

  4. They’d be wondering why we haven’t gotten off our couches and executed Democrats for being seditious traitors
