I wrote a lot in the early aughts about Jonah Goldberg’s apotheosis at National Review in the wake of William F. Buckley’s purge of immigration patriots like John O’Sullivan and VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow because I regarded him as a symbol and a symptom of the intellectual and moral degeneration of a magazine I once...

In early 2016, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his country would no longer bomb the Islamic State. Defending this decision, the prime minister stated: “Call us old-fashioned, but we think that we ought to avoid doing precisely what our enemies want us to do. They want us to elevate, to give in to fear,... Read More

No discussion of Southern conservatism, its history and its relationship to what is termed broadly the “American conservative movement” would be complete without an examination of events that have transpired over the past fifty years and the pivotal role of the powerful intellectual current known as Neoconservatism. From the 1950s into the 1980s Southerners who... Read More

At least one Trump Effect is still working: When Republican candidates want to win, they champion immigration patriotism. Thus, in a special election Democrats were hoping to win, Republican candidate Debbie Lesko held off a strong challenge by explicitly supporting President Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexican border. Still, Lesko’s victory was far narrower than... Read More

The flagship organ of Conservatism Inc. is suddenly worried about intellectual diversity after The Atlantic fired former National Review contributor Kevin Williamson.

It was only two years ago that then-candidate Trump avoided the annual Conservative Political Action Conference [CPAC] because it looked likely he would be booed by “true conservatives.” At this year’s CPAC, both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were treated as conquering heroes, leading the Main Stream Media to declare the president’s...

For the past thirty-five years (officially since 1986) the third Monday in January has been celebrated as a federal holiday, Martin Luther King Day. Federal and state offices and many businesses either close or go on limited schedules. We are awash with public observances, parades, prayer breakfasts, stepped-up school projects for our unwary and intellectually-abused... Read More
Running Commentary is a lively and well-researched work of intellectual history that is of interest both as an account of how a group of alienated dissidents came to revolutionize American politics and as a history of neoconservatism that details the movement’s Jewish origins. The author’s main thesis is that the link between neoconservatism and the... Read More

In the bar and restaurant business managing one’s clientele is well understood, though the tactics are seldom publicly acknowledged. For example, a restaurant targeting an upscale crowd will avoid anything that might attract Hillbillies more at home at a Cracker Barrel. No need for a “No White Trash” sign— the unwelcome customers just feel out... Read More

As we move into 2018, I am swinging away from the Republicans. I don’t support the Paul Ryan “Better Way” agenda. I don’t support neoliberal economics.

A few days ago, the Heritage Foundation named a long-serving member of its board, a black woman, as the new president of the organization [Heritage Foundation taps Kay Coles James to be next president, by Nolan McCaskill and Eliana Johnson, Politico, December 19, 2017]. The old joke comes to mind: “What do you call a... Read More
What I call “Demographic conservatism”—the instinctive tendency to want to live among people who closely resemble yourself in appearance, manners, dress style, language, and religion, the package we call “culture,” except that race is a component too—is a major factor in what I’ve been calling the Cold Civil War between Goodwhites and Badwhites. The latest... Read More

For immigration patriots, there’s a Narrative in place to explaining the crushing defeat of the GOP throughout Virginia on Tuesday night. “Establishment Ed” Gillespie, whose entire life story is a kind of Pilgrim’s Progress illustrating the utter pointlessness of the Beltway Right, didn’t push the Donald Trump agenda and so Trump’s voters didn’t turn out....

Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. My title is “The Alt Right Perspective.” I assume this means that I should tell you what the Alt Right is, and how Alt Righters see the world. That’s unfortunate because I don’t actually know what the Alt Right is. Casual acquaintances—neighbors and such—sometimes ask me if I am Alt... Read More
And The Historic American Nation
My title is an homage to Richard Perle et al’s famous 1996 paper outlining Israel’s geopolitical needs in the Middle East, which does indeed seem subsequently to have largely implemented by the U.S.) It’s telling that President Trump is under siege because of the alleged misdeeds, committed years earlier, of Paul Manafort, briefly Trump campaign...

The Indian tribesman's claim to his ancient stomping grounds can't be reduced to a title search at the deeds office. That's the stuff of the positive law.

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. “Die.” The mind of a rational person...

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
Looking at a French nationalist website Boulevard Voltaire this morning, I notice a repetition of the conventional American media account of what occurred in Charlottesville on Saturday.

This month’s big event was the annual conference of American Renaissance in Tennessee over the last weekend. It was a great success—the best of the several AmRen conferences I’ve attended. One difference with previous AmRen conferences in this location is that the anti-white protestors (practically all of them, of course, white themselves—Goodwhites) were allowed to... Read More

The modern purpose of journalism is to police the Narrative.

A major London bookmaker, Ladbrokes, has given odds of 11–10 that Trump will resign or be impeached — almost even money.

What is taking place here is something... Read More

Why Trump Calls The Media “Dishonest And Corrupt”
Needless to say, Richard Spencer’s misjudged conclusion to his NPI conference keynote speech, “Hail Trump, Hail our People, Hail Victory,” and a few of his more juvenile supporters’ Roman salute in response, was the top Main Stream Media story for days, with even President-elect Trump being required to “disavow” the Alt Right. As Peter Brimelow... Read More

Instead, they... Read More

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

Throughout the 2016 election, we have been presented... Read More

It still does to the patriot grassroots struggling desperately to... Read More

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.
