Escalating could be intended to involve the United States
Two years ago I wrote an article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” Though I made clear in the piece that I was writing about specific, identifiable Jews who fund and staff the think-tanks and foundations that make up the Israel Lobby, I was immediately fired by the Editor of The American Conservative (TAC)...

Tulsi Gabbard let the genie out of the bottle
Last Wednesday’s debate among half of the announced Democratic Party candidates to become their party’s nominee for president in 2020 was notable for its lack of drama. Many of those called on to speak had little to say apart from the usual liberal bromides about health care, jobs, education and how the United States is... Read More
Back this past November 2018 Patrick J. Buchanan celebrated his 80th birthday. For those of us who have known him over the years and counted him as a friend it appears as if time has stood still—it seems only yesterday that Pat was holding forth on CNN’s “Crossfire,” and that he was running for president,...

Patrick J. Buchanan turns 80 years old on Friday, November 2. The man and his supporters can now look back and reflect on how right he has been—the election of Donald Trump and the continuing transformation of the GOP into a populist-nationalist party are directly connected to Pat Buchanan and his swimming against the Establishment...

Before the election, the great Leftist fear was that Donald Trump would refuse to acknowledge his inevitable defeat, thus ensuring chaos. Just before the President-Elect is to be inaugurated, the new Leftist fear is that Democrats will recognize Donald J. Trump is in fact Commander-in-Chief, thus preventing chaos. What is taking place here is something... Read More
Having enthused about Pat Buchanan's latest book, and then about the man himself, here on Takimag, I hope the following needs no apology. Pat's mortal like the rest of us, with weaknesses that sometimes disable him. Hey, every rose has a thorn. Pat's particular weakness showed up in an interview he did with Juan Williams... Read More
Crusader: The Life and Tumultuous Times of Pat Buchanan, by Timothy Stanley
Has Pat Buchanan been fired from MSNBC, or hasn't he? Pat hasn't been seen on the channel since October, when his last book came out. (I reviewed it for TakiMag here.) MSNBC president Phil Griffin said a month ago that Pat was being kept off the air because of things Griffin found objectionable in the... Read More
Pat Buchanan may be the only self-described paleoconservative whose last six books have reached The New York Times Best Seller list. Pat did this despite the established conservative movement’s slanders and the Murdoch media empire’s inattention. His books have come out with topline commercial presses while bearing such grim titles as Day of Reckoning, Death... Read More
Suicide of a Superpower, by Patrick J. Buchanan
One of the schoolmasters in charge of my Religious Instruction — Anglican, of course — used to say that a good hymn is one that leaves you feeling absolutely terrible. I feel the same way about Pat Buchanan's books. By this measure, Suicide of a Superpower is a very good Buchanan book indeed. With chapter... Read More
Among the neoconservatives' kept pontificators on modern history, Victor Davis Hanson may well be the most ridiculous. A respectable scholar when writing about Greek hoplites and other aspects of ancient military history, Hanson becomes a raving maniac as soon as he puts on his neocon spectacles. His latest syndicated column, "World War II: Unfashionable Truths"... Read More
Much of the Western world just honored the millions of soldiers fallen in the two world wars. But we also need to look beyond postwar myths and understand the tragic political mistakes that sent these soldiers to die in wars that might have been avoided. In his powerful new book, Hitler, Churchill and the Unnecessary... Read More
Without wishing to talk to death certain issues raised by Churchill, Hitler and "The Unnecessary War," I have been noticing the obsession of Buchanan's critics with German blame for World War One. This fixation has recently come up with particular force in one truly egregious article in Newsweek that global democratic atheist and part-time Teutonophobe... Read More

The following is the first installment in a three-part critical symposium on Patrick Buchanan’s Churchill, Hitler, and the “Unnecessary War.” It is not surprising that Pat Buchanan’s new book, exploring the collapse of the British Empire and the connection of that disaster to England’s involvement in two world wars, should have received a strong endorsement...

The publication of Pat Buchanan's latest book The Death of the West (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2002) has allowed some long-standing ideological divisions to surface. While much of the Old Right, together with black conservatives Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell, heaped praise on Buchanan's work, liberal and neoconservative journalists have attacked Buchanan for his...

Having now read Jonah Goldberg's latest venture into political philosophy ("Pat Buchanan Meets Al Sharpton" – occasioned by Buchanan's new book Death of the West), I remain astonished by how little he knows, even by comparison to my upper-level students. What he says about Joseph-Marie le Comte de Maistre is not only silly but is... Read More
