The Inconceivable Evil Of John McCain—“Man Of Blood”
There is no hatred more complete and no malevolence more fanatical than that held by the American political class for the American people. The commissar’s rage against the kulaks, the jihadist’s fury against the infidel, the inquisitor’s wrath against the unbeliever, all of this pales in comparison to the genocidal bloodlust Senators and Congressmen have...

In post-America, holidays to honor what were once national heroes are now opportunities for iconoclasm. The black-clad communist terrorists known as “Antifa” have announced plans to spend Monday defacing and destroying monuments to the great Italian explorer who opened up America to large-scale European settlement [Antifa group plans nationwide ‘deface Columbus Day’ Actions for Monday,...

Enforcer For Democrats (And, Tacitly, Conservatism Inc.)
In the alien invasion movie Independence Day, the beleaguered President of the United States, hoping he can forge some kind of a peace which will at least allow the survival of the human race, pleads, “What is it you want us to do?” The alien’s response is simple. The mind of a rational person rebels... Read More

He Must Return To Lead It
[See: “If Only The God-Emperor Knew: Using Trumpism Against The Trump Administration” by James Kirkpatrick] He must have known what was coming.

Open debate in the West now hangs by a thread—even the social networking site Gab, the libertarian alternative to the increasingly Politically Correct Twitter, is now threatened with outright seizure of its domain for allegedly breaking Australian anti-discrimination laws. This may well be another example of the emerging Cultural Marxism-Big Business alliance: the crackdown comes... Read More

NATIONAL REVIEW, Kevin D. Williamson and the Pointless Persuasion
Argumentum ad hominem is usually characterized as a logical fallacy. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Of course, if the best you can do is call your enemies losers, you better not be a bigger loser yourself. If you’re trying to dismiss your political adversaries as irrelevant, you better be more relevant than they... Read More
It’s Totalitarian, It’s Captured the Democratic Party, and It’s Coming for America
There’s an interesting moment in Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign when two obscure Democrat operatives who involved in her presidential debate-prep sessions, Karen Dunn and Ron Klain, “stressed that Trump, contrary to popular opinion, had actually put forth a lot of policy ideas.” (VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow had...

President Donald Trump finally did what no-one in the Conservative Establishment would: calling out the Antifa (the “Alt Left” in his words) for sparking violence at the legally-sanctioned demonstration in Charlottesville: “You had a group on the other side that came charging in without permit,” the President said. “They were very violent” [Trump Says ‘Both...

Across The West, Patriots Face Cultural Marxist Soft Totalitarianism
President Trump’s masterful speech in Warsaw has flushed out the journalists and far-Left activists (but I repeat myself) eager to see the West’s culture and people extinguished. This we are told that President Trump had said something “shocking” because he defined the West by heritage, culture and identity rather than by “democracy and liberty.” But... Read More

This was inevitable. As of this writing, Congressman Steve Scalise remains in critical condition after being shot by a fanatically anti-Trump, Bernie Sanders supporting white male.

On the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, it appears only a cynic could say France and the United Kingdom “won” World War II.

The modern purpose of journalism is to police the Narrative.

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times for nationalism in Europe.

Before the election, the great Leftist fear was that Donald Trump would refuse to acknowledge his inevitable defeat, thus ensuring chaos.

Left Fights To Recapture Narrative—With Help From NATIONAL REVIEW
Well, that didn’t last long.

Conservatives are fond of saying, “Being a liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.” Unfortunately, the same is true of Conservatism Inc. functionaries. They acknowledge conservatives are facing demographic extinction. They admit it is happening because of immigration. But they refuse to listen to the very people who warned them about this. Instead, they... Read More

And Republicans Against Trump Are The Hijackers
There is no next time. This is America’s last chance.

Like Jeb Bush, Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine has a phenotype that generates involuntary disgust among normal people.

“War” was the late Andrew Breitbart’s one-word analysis of how American patriots should treat the Lying Press. It’s a war that’s continued even after his death, under the leadership of Steve Bannon.

Trump Has Thumbs On Evil Party’s Windpipe (If RATS Don’t Stab Him In The Back)
There’s a reason the Main Stream Media/ Lying Press is obsessing on Melania Trump’s alleged plagiarism/ homage: the Trump convention has its thumbs on the Evil Party’s jugular.
