It’s always extremely sad and confusing when a massive propaganda campaign, like the one we’ve been subjected to for about the last year, comes to a sudden and ignominious end. You wake up one morning, and the billionaire asshat that more or less every “respected” organ of the corporatist media has been telling you was... Read More

In Washington, where the rice paddies of self-importance are nourished with the night soil of mendacity, columnists are viewed with the seriousness properly reserved for lung cancer. This is ridiculous. Columnists, the rodent class of journalism, have the dignity of carney barkers and merit the social standing of bellhops. It’s a living. For most of... Read More

Perhaps I am not the only viewer who finds that Fox News, the “conservative network,” has become somewhat schizophrenic. I can watch a bit of “Hannity” late in the evening, or a few minutes of “Fox & Friends” earlier when I arise in the morning, and the panelists and hosts offer convincing evidence of one... Read More

[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively on VDARE.com.] Fifty years ago, give or take a few weeks, subscribers to the quarterly Leftist journal Partisan Review were just settling down with the Winter 1967 edition — accompanied, one imagines, by a nice dry martini and a freshly-opened pack of Chesterfields. That edition of... Read More

“The judiciary itself, which has for so long been the last safeguard of our liberty and honor, seems to have forgotten the difference between ‘just’ and ‘unjust’ in the general collapse of public morality and equity.” Alphonse Toussenel, The Jews: Kings of the Epoch, 1847.

Does anyone remember my column of nine years ago called “Letter of Termination to the White Race?” I don’t believe we know who really wrote this letter — or why, but the point is, it paints a chilling picture of what is in fact happening to the White race right before our eyes. For instance,... Read More
I don't know for sure that Palo Alto, CA, the home of the venture capital industry and next door to Stanford U., is really the highest IQ town in America.

Essential Criminal Probe or Politically-Motivated Witch Hunt?
“The strange sight of liberal America participating in a neo-McCarthyite assault on Trump appointees, not on the grounds of their inherent racism and stupidity, but because they have contacts with Russia, is among the more surreal spectacles of modern political history.” — John Steppling, Are You Now, or Have You Ever Been, a Secret Agent...

And so I was back in my friend’s house in this most tranquil, on the surface, country town. Outside was a young cherry tree with three bowling balls at its base, one for each dog buried beneath. A roofer’s ashes had also been scattered over its branches, but nothing remained of the short-lived man. Before... Read More

If you had any doubt that former community organizer Barack Obama sees his future as a corporate pitchman for the rich and famous (the Ricardo Montalban of the policy set), look no further than the deal that he and his wife, Michele, struck with Penguin Random House for a reported $60 million (which is a...

Before the largest audience of his political career, save perhaps his inaugural, Donald Trump delivered the speech of his life. And though Tuesday's address may be called moderate, even inclusive, Trump's total mastery of his party was on full display. Congressional Republicans who once professed "free-trade" as dogmatic truth rose again and again to cheer... Read More
Alt-Right Leader Richard Spencer
Even in today’s acrimonious political landscape, nothing seems to draw as much vitriol as the minuscule “Alt-Right” (shorthand for an alternative to mainstream Conservatism Inc.). Indeed, if America’s political class organized 1984-style two-minute hates, the Alt-Right would be the star of the show with Richard Spencer substituting for Emmanuel Goldstein. Given this aversion across the... Read More

There were a few tense hours before President Trump's First Address to Congress. All news outlets were claiming the president would call for an immigration bill in which both sides would be asked to compromise. Was this Fake News? Or, was the president sending up a trial balloon to test the reaction? Was Donald Trump,... Read More

Here are embeds to my two most recent videos for Newsbud. They pair together nicely as they track the evolving stories on Pakistan/Afghanistan and North Korea. Trump may be sucking all the oxygen out of the mediasphere, but the usual suspects are still out there conducting the usual business of murder and mayhem. The most... Read More
Although I cannot claim to be in the mainstream of contemporary culture, even I have heard of the Oscar error.

And the devil is spelled T-R-U-M-P
Last Monday The Washington Post featured an op-ed by one Edward Price entitled “I didn’t think I’d ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit.” I must admit that it was refreshing at first to read something in The Post that did not rush to blame BOTH Trump and Vladimir Putin for everything... Read More

Putin's latest move I don't follow the western corporate media so I don't really know how much coverage this development has received in the West, but in Russia and the Ukraine the big news is the decision by Russia to begin recognizing official Novorussian documents such as passports, driver licenses, school and college diplomas, etc....

Back in 2016, Twitter bannings mostly targeted Gamergaters who pissed off the Gamerghazi clique who have seized Twitter's Orwellian-named "Trust & Safety Council," as well as the occasional outright Neo-Nazi. Now it seems to be extending beyond those groups to the entirety of the Alt Right, including the milquetoast Alt Lite, to NRx, and even... Read More
Up until very recently, Russia was viewed more favorably by the Liberals/Left than conservatives in the US. Many of the conservatives were people who had grown up at the height of the Cold War, saw the letters KGB in Putin's eyes like McCain, and tended to suffer from a bad case of your brain on...

As a Jew on the libertarian Right, I am sickened by the compulsion of some American Jews to force President Donald Trump to convulse over Jewish angst. The Anti-Defamation League and other largely self-anointed representatives of Jewish interests are kvetching, accusing the president of not making it abundantly clear that he will not tolerate violence...

No matter how you slice or dice it, today’s universities, particularly in the humanities and social sciences, are intellectual wastelands often more committed to propagating the Leftist faith than knowledge. The campus vocabulary says it all: trigger warnings, safe spaces, micro-aggressions, social justice warriors, cultural appropriation, speech codes, and disinviting --while many instructors are obsessed...

Mike Moore’s flabby mug always looks indecently exposed, like middle-aged female genitalia. The fat slob could lead the old hags’ march without the pink pussyhat. Just his own visage would suffice. He is actually similar to George Soros: the same obscene pussyface. For me, his appearance would doom him: like Oscar Wilde, I believe that... Read More

A major London bookmaker, Ladbrokes, has given odds of 11–10 that Trump will resign or be impeached — almost even money. Of course, this is not in the least surprising given that Trump is loathed by the entire Establishment, Left to Right and is now being victimized by “Deep State” operatives in the intelligence community...

Trump did not cause the deep division in the country. It caused him. There are two very different Americas. I suspect that the half of the country that voted for Trump, that voted with wild enthusiasm, that roared at huge rallies, was not so much voting for Trump as against the other America. It was...

NYT smear logic: If you mention the name of a fascist, just once, you must support fascism.
The Washington political establishment has ways of dealing with invading rebel armies like the one led by Donald Trump. For the last month, there has been a collective glee in pointing out the chaotic rollout of the White House’s executive order on travel, its contradictory messaging, and the unpredictability of Trump’s Twitter activity. All of... Read More

How might a future historian view the massive protests of President Trump’s temporary travel ban? Given that I have yet to see a sign disputing the President’s legal authority, I can only assume that these demonstrations are entirely about President Trump’s refusal to make America more Islamic. At least in the minds of these demonstrators,... Read More

President Trump had paid a hefty advance to the Jews.

Mainstream journalists have betrayed their calling
The Editorial page of The Washington Post newspaper generally holds to its current progressive-dominated program consisting of anti-racism, pro-diversity plus multiculturalism, “choice,” LGBTQ “rights,” and, ironically, constant war. It is not noted for its sense of humor except on Saturday morning when it runs a number of cartoons ridiculing Donald Trump. All of which contributed... Read More

‘De Omnibus Dubitandum’ Everything is to be Doubted Introduction President Trump is deeply embedded in the politics of the deep state structure of American imperialism.

There was no abatement of Lefty hysteria in this, the second week of the first Trump administration.

Donald Trump is the gift that keeps giving.

On January 23, 2017, I asked, “Are Americans Racists?” I pointed out examples where racist explanations prevail over empirical fact. I did not write that there is no racism in America.

VDARE.com reader “Virginia Paleoconservative” writes: In today [January 29]’s Washington Post, the Sunday hard copy edition, the main “A” Section is almost totally devoted to critical or even semi-hysterical articles about President Trump’s immigration executive order.

If a prize were awarded for the worst policy idea, one that would waste billions in some futile quest for the impossible, the indisputable winner would be uplifting the academic bottom by fixing their “bad schools.” It is a seductive idea that never seems to die despite repeated failures; it even seduces free-market conservatives infatuated...

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance. That’s why the American colour... Read More

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition.

Journalism — especially about important matters — is not a profession. It’s a calling. Or else, if it’s not a calling, then it is public relations; it is propaganda, “PR” — done for the purpose of receiving pay, not really for the purpose of conveying truth. But propaganda isn’t journalism at all. It’s not merely... Read More

On the day President Trump is inaugurated, thousands of writers in the United States will express their indignation. “In order for us to heal and move forward …,” say Writers Resist, “we wish to bypass direct political discourse, in favour of an inspired focus on the future, and how we, as writers, can be a...

The Main Stream Media predicts Donald J. Trump will appeal for “national unity” in his Inaugural Address this Friday, but they’ve been mistaken before. One way he could wrong-foot the Narrative: by announcing an immediate pause in “refugee” admissions, currently surging, to be followed by a zero quota for the next fiscal year—something that, by...

Americans need to learn what is really going on both at home and abroad
