Racism and Violence as Decoys
Millions of football fans must have felt grateful to President Trump for provoking the entire National Football League into a goal line stand last month. The sight of hundreds of players on the sidelines, arms linked with coaches and owners during the playing of the national anthem, not only soothed fears that a disrupted season... Read More

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...

The weirdest aspect of the Open-Borders ideology is the sanctification of illegal aliens. They are holy objects, radiating a sublime, ethereal glow to those sufficiently spiritually refined to see it. We’re all more or less used to this where blacks are concerned. They dwell on a moral plane far above ours, and any negativity about... Read More
Some immigrants don’t contribute much: locals blamed.
Commenting on the findings shown on the Government website, the Prime Minister said: “What this audit shows is there isn't anywhere to hide. That's not just for Government, it's for society as a whole. Britain has come a long way in promoting equality and opportunity but what the data we've published today shows is that... Read More
To attend the Indianapolis Colts game where the number of the legendary Peyton Manning was to be retired, Vice President Mike Pence, a former governor of Indiana, flew back from Las Vegas. With him in the stadium was wife Karen. In honor of Manning, she wore a No. 18 jersey as "The Star Spangled Banner"... Read More

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,...

A man, Sonny Melton, 29, died, shielding his wife from the bullets. Another commandeered a truck to drive victims of the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas to the hospital. At first, Vanessa, a concertgoer, fled the Vegas venue, which was being sprayed with bullets from high-velocity rifles. Then, she turned and ran back. She... Read More

Genuflecting is in the news—football players, mainly black ones, “taking a knee” during pre-game playing of the National Anthem. The most recent example, from this Sunday: teams kneeling before the anthem, and being booed anyway–NFL fans booed players for kneeling before national anthem and standing for it | NFL players tried to show support for...

Women and The Donald in Everyday Life
Back in 1992, a certain New York real estate mogul told a reporter from New York magazine that you have to treat women “like shit.” That was a perfect summary of his philosophy, but it may be an even better descriptor for the way many women treat themselves -- or, rather, how they’re treated by...

As deplorable as we Badwhites are, our medieval forebears were deplorabler. Here’s one: Geoffrey le Barbu (“the Bearded”), Count of Anjou, around a.d. 1065: Now that’s Badwhite! (Geoffrey, by the way, was a great-granduncle of the English King Henry II, first of the Plantagenet Dynasty. His younger brother, who rejoiced in the epithet Fulk the... Read More
When elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2000, Judge Roy Moore installed in his courthouse a monument with the Ten Commandments that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai carved into it. Told by a federal court his monument violated the separation of church and state, Moore refused to remove it and was... Read More
Last Sunday, a horrific mass shooting unfolded in Antioch, TN while the national media was consumed with covering the NFL protests and Hurricane Maria’s aftermath. Emanuel Kidega Samson, a 25-year-old Sudanese refugee from Murfreesboro, entered the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in nearby Antioch, TN and gunned down 7 people. He shot Melanie Crow Smith...

"Taking a knee" stands for the specter of beefy, pampered athletes—they're not sportsmen—wealthy beyond belief, striking a political pose on the football field, during the playing of the national anthem. First to kneel when he was meant to stand was Colin Kaepernick. The reason the San Francisco 49er knelt, in 2016: "I am not going... Read More
"America refuses to address the pervasive evil of white cops killing black men, and I will not stand during a national anthem that honors the flag of such a country!" That is the message Colin Kaepernick sent by "taking a knee" during the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner" before San Francisco '49s games in... Read More
We all saw what happened yesterday in Antioch. Emanuel Kidega Samson, a Sudanese refugee from Murfreesboro, entered a predominantly White church in Antioch, TN and opened fire. He shot Melanie Smith in the back as she was walking to her car, turned her over and fatally shot her in the face like a dog. Then... Read More
The Germans have a word for it: “homonationalism“—polls suggest support among homosexuals for the immigration-patriot AfD party is higher than among Germans at large, basically because of gay-bashing by Merkel-imported Muslim “refugees.” [The gay men turning to the far right in Germany, By Atika Shubert, Nadine Schmidt and Judith Vonberg, CNN, September 14, 2017] We’ll...

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist, "tweeted President Trump. "These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard." Prime Minister Theresa May and the mad media fumed over the president's insinuation that the Parsons Green "bucket bomber" was a "Known Wolf," and not a lone wolf. But Donald... Read More
The Royal Society is the world’s oldest scientific society, and is held in high regard. To be a Fellow of that society is a great accomplishment. I am glad to have friends who have achieved this status, including one of the few couples who are both Fellows. So, it is a considerable surprise to learn... Read More
Signs of American collapse are everywhere. Apparently no one notices. The world continues to vote with the US in the UN. When even Russia and China serve as handmaidens to US foreign policy by voting with Washington against North Korea, it appears that the image of America as the exceptional and indispensable country is a...

"The Barbarian cannot make ... he can befog and destroy but ... he cannot sustain; and of every Barbarian in the decline or peril of every civilization exactly that has been true." Hilaire Belloc's depiction of the barbarian is recalled to mind as the statues honoring the history and heroes of the Republic and of... Read More

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
As I predicted, the erasing of American history will not be limited to Confederate monuments. Last week a member of the board of trustees of the Dallas, Texas, school district recommended changing the name of James Madison High School. James Madison was the father of the US Constitution, considered by Identity Politics, the political ideology... Read More
Over the course of my lifetime America has become an infantile country. When I was born America was a nation. Today it is a diversity country in which various segments divided by race, gender, and sexual preference, preach hate toward other segments. Currently white heterosexual males are losing in the hate game, but once hate... Read More
Tucker Carlson and his guest Dan Bongino raised what you might call a look-away issue: Looting. As the two looked on at footage of looters in post-Irma Florida, TV talker and guest volunteered that "this" was "not about race." "This," presumably, being a reference to the looting. Here was one of those, "Who are you... Read More

The eyesore presidential libraries
The social justice warrior charge to purge the United States of all monuments relating in any way to the Confederacy has been rapidly expanding to include the scourge represented by all white people all through history. The Founding Fathers who owned slaves will undoubtedly be the next ones on the block and the list will... Read More
Good news for David Brooks [Email him] and other guilty white cuckservatives/ liberals everywhere yearning for a nonthreatening black person to gush over: Ta-Nehisi Coates [Tweet him] has a new long article out in The Atlantic this week.

Manish Shah: Charged with 118 sexual crimes against his patients
An Essex-based family doctor of Indian origin, Manish Shah, has gone on trial in London charged with 118 sexual offences against 54 of his patients, one of whom was under 13 at the time of Shah’s alleged predations. Although the sordid details of the accusations against Shah are yet to fully emerge, we know that... Read More
I’m going to go out on a limb here and argue that the campaign against Professor Amy Wax at U. Penn. (detailed here and here) may end up as a net plus for race realism. Here’s my argument.

Decades from now experts will surely debate today’s Summer of Monumental Hysteria. After all, by all objective criteria—assuming, of course, that anything can be objective if it involves race—it should not have happened. How many Americans really can correctly identify Robert E. Lee, let alone Roger B. Taney? (According to one recent survey, half the... Read More
We are going to have to do far more than take down Robert E. Lee’s statue. We have to close the US Military Academy at West Point. Not only was Lee a West Point graduate, but in 1962 the U.S. Army named the West Point barracks after Robert E. Lee. Two New York congress persons... Read More

Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) has been called the Father of Modern Science. So it is fitting that he was, perhaps, the first scientist to be censured and silenced by political forces represented in his day by the Catholic Church. The issue then was evidence Galileo presented supporting the Copernican heliocentric model of the solar system that... Read More

"Some crazy person just compared President Abraham Lincoln to Hitler. Yes, this just happened on CNN and Brooke Baldwin's reaction was perfect." So scribbled one Ricky Davila on Social Media (Twitter). Indeed, an elderly Southern gentleman had ventured that President Lincoln, not General Lee, murdered civilians, a point even a Court historian and a Lincoln... Read More
We Don't Need No Stinkin' Facts
In the United States, facts, an important element of truth, are not important. They are not important in the media, politics, universities, historical explanations, or the courtroom. Non-factual explanations of the collapse of three World Trade Center buildings are served up as the official explanation. Facts have been politicized, emotionalized, weaponized and simply ignored. As... Read More

During a recent interview at my local unemployment office, the man charged with my case looked at my résumé and expressed his admiration of American journalism. “You people just report the facts; here in France it’s nothing but opinion,” he said. I told him that while I agreed with the sentiment, his viewpoint was unfortunately... Read More

The state of our military is a bit worrying. Those of us with family members serving have more to worry about than the average. I have no doubt our soldiers, sailors, and airmen will do their fighting best with any mission we assign them. But politicized leadership and stupid ideas about human nature may get... Read More

First, a quick disclaimer or, should I say, a clarification: When I speak of minorities, as I will below, I do that as a person who belongs to a long list of minorities. I was born in a family of Russian refugees. Right there, that makes me part of a (rather small) minority. Furthermore, I... Read More
Decades ago, a debate over what kind of nation America is roiled the conservative movement. Neocons claimed America was an "ideological nation" a "creedal nation," dedicated to the proposition that "all men are created equal." Expropriating the biblical mandate, "Go forth and teach all nations!" they divinized democracy and made the conversion of mankind to... 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...

We Will At Least Be Less Bored
Katie, bar the ever-lovin’ door. Compromise seems a forlorn hope in today’s strange version of America. Anger runs too deep. All that is left is to choose sides. We will then see whether the country sinks—continues sinking–into a Soviet future already largely upon us, or we see armed mobs battling in the streets. Does this... Read More
Given that The Economist is a major journalistic voice for the globalist, nation-hating, open-borders, anti-Trump club of the Billionaire Left; and given that AntiFa is the “muscle” of that club; it’s not very surprising that when our President attacks AntiFa, The Economist pulls out all the stops. The cover of the current (August 19th-25th) issue... Read More
We learned, although we already knew it, that the US media has no integrity. We learned that the liberal/progressive/left holds fast to myths that justify hate. We learned that misrepresentation is the hallmark of American history. We learned that some websites that we thought were brave are not. We learned that Identity Politics has a... Read More
Laura Ingraham Tosses and Gores Him
One of the side-effects of these periodic moral panics that sweep through American society — Trayvon, Ferguson, Charlottesville — is that they unmask people — bring out their inner nature. Well, two weeks ago on the podcast I said some kind words, or at least not un-kind words, about TV talking head Charles Krauthammer. I... Read More
I doubt that having women per se in a business confers any advantage over and above having bright and diligent men and women chosen on the basis of their abilities. How would one test this this? Observational studies would be a start, looking to see whether the proportions of the sexes in different businesses, and... Read More
A peaceful torchlight parade--unlike Ferguson and Baltimore, nothing was set on fire.
The Retreat Of Law—And Law Schools
One problem underlying our present discontents—a problem that looms larger and larger in my mind the more I think about it—is what I think of as the retreat of law. Case in point: the August 11/12 protests in Charlottesville should never have been allowed to get so violent. There were a few hundred protestors on... Read More

Who did what to whom?
The hysteria unfolding regarding events in Charlottesville reminds me of the anti-Russia madness that has made front page news ever since Hillary Clinton discovered that she had lost the presidential election to Vladimir Putin. The media train is again rushing headlong into a terra incognita with its only goal being to bring down President Donald... Read More
When Trump was elected I wrote that it was unlikely that he would be successful in accomplishing the three objectives for which he was elected—peace with Russia, the return home of offshored US jobs, and effective limits on non-white immigration—because these objectives conflicted with the interests of those more powerful than the president. I wrote... Read More
MSM (and GOP) Charlottesville Hysteria
My first take on the news comes right after I get out of bed in the morning, when I’ve retrieved my paper copy of the New York Post from the driveway to read over my breakfast oatmeal. The NYP’s not bad, as MainsStream Media goes. But last Sunday’s issue was straight-up CultMarx Narrative. “TERROR IN... Read More
"They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee -- and what a leader! ... No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller." So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial "The Oxford History of the American People" in 1965. First... Read More
The liberal/progressives, lost as they are in their emotionalism, do not realize that their rantings about white supremacists are also discrediting themselves and not merely their foes. The rest of the world doesn’t differentiate between good whites and bad whites. As one reader who wrote to me from India said, “All whites are guilty.” That... Read More
