The Unz Review Digest - October 18, 2018
Ranking first this last week was part one of Thomas Dalton’s lengthy analysis of the enormous but almost entirely hidden Jewish role in both world wars, republished from a few years ago. Much of this information was widely discussed at the time, but afterward was excluded from mainstream histories of the era, eventually being forgotten by recent generations.
Placing second was David William Pear’s sharp demolition of the political history of Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, arguing that he had clearly committed perjury in his past appearances before Congressional panels and instead of holding a place on our highest court deserved jail for his legal violations.
Our third most popular featured article was the Saker’s discussion of the new Russian shipment of their powerful S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria, and implications this will have for the ongoing conflict, arguing that it will sharply restrict future violations of Syrian airspace by Israeli planes, which over the last few years had undertaken some 200 bombing raids on targets in that country.
Philip Giraldi’s fourth ranking piece discussed an upcoming protest march in DC aimed at the exceptionally provocative and dangerous national security policies of the Trump Administration, as suggested by the recent statement by the U.S. Ambassador to NATO that America reserved the right to launch military attacks against missile targets in Russia which the Administration believed were in violation of various treaty obligations. The notion of a top American official casually claiming that the U.S. had every right to attack military bases in nuclear-armed Russia at will is simply beyond insane, and raises severe doubts about our current political system.
Fifth place was a strongly favorable discussion of FoxNews TV star Tucker Carlson and his new book, which provides a very harsh critique of America’s ruling political class, including both Democrats and Republicans.
Finally, rounding out our most popular featured articles was Anatoly Karlin’s detailed discussion of the necessary steps for Russia to take towards its hostile Ukraine neighbor going forward.
In our modern era, there are surely few organizations that so terrify powerful Americans as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B'nai B'rith, a central organ of the organized Jewish community. Mel Gibson had long been one of the most popular stars in Hollywood and his 2004 film The Passion of the Christ became among the... Read More
The hunt for anti-Semites
First, anti-Semites everywhere! It has been over a year since I wrote an article entitled “A Crash Course on the True Causes of “Anti-Semitism." I tried to illustrate how the kind of ideology and worldview of what ought to be called Rabbinical Phariseeism but is, alas, usually referred to as “Orthodox Judaism,” results in an... Read More
Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky: Kiev in 1905. I suppose that if superintelligence is developed soon, or the entire world melts together into a post-historical open borders dystopia/utopia, or some existential risk does as all in, then these considerations will become rather irrelevant. However, if the 21st century continues on a more or less "business as usual" path,... Read More
Assessing the Grim Legacy of Soviet Communism
In the night of July 16-17, 1918, a squad of Bolshevik secret police murdered Russia's last emperor, Tsar Nicholas II, along with his wife, Tsaritsa Alexandra, their 14-year-old son, Tsarevich Alexis, and their four daughters. They were cut down in a hail of gunfire in a half-cellar room of the house in Ekaterinburg, a city... Read More
Time to cut the tie that binds
The ability of Israel and its powerful Lobby to control many aspects of American government while also sustaining an essentially false narrative about the alleged virtues of the Jewish State is remarkable. Politicians and journalists learned long ago that it was better to cultivate Israel’s friends than it was to support actual American interests. They... Read More
In 2006, an inebriated Mel Gibson allegedly said this: “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” There followed the predicable storm of anti-anti-Semitism, ad hominem attacks, and various other slanders against Gibson’s character. But virtually no one asked the question: Is he right? Or rather this: To what degree could he... Read More
Is “feminist intellect” an oxymoron? Is Vagynocracy — the vagina-worshipping, gynaecocratic cult of feminism — an intellectual and ethical void? Countless feminists certainly seem determined to prove so. I’m not a fan of the American judge Brett Kavanaugh and I’m suspending judgment about whether his appointment to the Supreme Court will be a Good Thing.... Read More
Recently, a friend shared with me the correspondence he had had with a former female classmate now an Episcopal priestess in New York, over what she called “white supremacy” and “toxic masculinity,” and asked what I thought. After reading the exchanges, my response was very simple: given the ideological assumptions real discussion of those issues... Read More
In Part 1 of this article, I provided an account of the Jewish role in the events leading up to World War One, with an emphasis on their influence in the UK and United States. Woodrow Wilson was shown to be the first American president elected with the full backing of the Jewish lobby, and... Read More
Time for the sans-culottes to rise up against Washington's insanity
On October 21st there will be a Women's March on the Pentagon hosted by the Global Women’s Peace Action. My wife and many of our friends will be going and even I will tag along in support in spite of my gender. We participate with some reservations as we have only demonstrated publicly twice since...

If there is one thing that still unites Americans across the ever more intellectually suffocating and bitterly polarized political spectrum our imaginations have been crammed into like rush hour commuters on the Tokyo Metro, it’s our undying love of identity politics. Who doesn’t love identity politics? Liberals love identity politics. Conservatives love identity politics. Political... Read More
A Letter to Elizabeth Warren
Senator Elizabeth Warren 317 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, D.C. Dear Senator Warren: As a constituent, I have noted with interest your suggestion that you will “take a hard look” at running for president in 2020, even as you campaign for reelection to the Senate next month. Forgive me for saying that I interpret that... Read More
Introduction The leading financial publications have misled their political and investor subscribers of emerging crises and military defeats which have precipitated catastrophic political and economic losses. The most egregious example is the Financial Times (FT) a publication which is widely read by the business and financial elite. In this essay we will proceed by outlining... Read More
At the time of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August a year ago, Donald Trump was the only prominent American politician to blame both sides for the violence. This evenhandedness suggested his administration might be equally evenhanded in bringing charges of rioting and violence. Starting with the President’s own inauguration, antifa... Read More
Jack Smith IV is a fairly standard example of a Leftist journalist who promotes Antifa, holds whites in low regard, and strives to paint everyone on the Right as a Nazi. His Twitter bio boasts of his union membership, and he describes himself as a “union thug.” Smith wrote for Mic.com, and specialized in trying... Read More
Back in 1999 I was invited to join Steve Sailer's HBD email group, where I encountered all sorts of interesting people. The participants were mostly intellectuals or journalists having sharply heterodox views about racial differences, especially those involving IQ and crime, and this was reflected in the somewhat euphemistic title, which stood for "Human Bio-Diversity."...

A few years ago I somehow heard about a ferocious online dispute involving a left-leaning journalist named Mark Ames and the editors of Reason magazine, the glossy flagship publication of America's burgeoning libertarian movement. Although I was deep in my difficult programming work, curiosity got the better of me, so I decided to take a... Read More
From the New York Times today: One of the many HateGraphs published in the NYT today to show how evil white supremacists are using facts, logic, and science. I will put in bold all words like "misconception" and "distortion" so you can know what is Goodth
The Main Stream Media is quite clear about it: Mixed-race people are more intelligent and taller than are either of their parents [People born to genetically-diverse parents likely to be taller and more intelligent, says study, By Steve Connor, The Independent, July 1, 2015]. And they are also, in general, physically more attractive than mono-racial... Read More
Are elite university admissions based on meritocracy and diversity as claimed?
Just before the Labor Day weekend, a front page New York Times story broke the news of the largest cheating scandal in Harvard University history, in which nearly half the students taking a Government course on the role of Congress had plagiarized or otherwise illegally collaborated on their final exam. Each year, Harvard admits just... Read More
