The modern purpose of journalism is to police the Narrative. In a society where power is defined by who controls access to mass media (what Steve Sailer terms The Megaphone), journalists serve the same role and fulfill the same purpose as commissars did under the Soviet system that so many of them eagerly defended in...

The Japanese Were Right. The British Were Wrong.
This week our subject is “Life in Derbistan” or London as it used to be. I’m going to indulge myself in some nostalgia. It’s geezerish, I know. But reading about the terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge this Wednesday got me thinking about London, and I began to nostalge. (Is that a verb, “nostalge”? “I... 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

Conley, nominated by Obama) is trying to block President Trump’s revised travel ban [Judge: Revised Trump ban cannot be enforced on Syrian family, by Todd Richmond, AP, March 11 2017].

President Trump on Tuesday gave a one-hour speech to a joint session of Congress. There was some cucking, about Black History Month, a licensed occasion for the ramping-up of anti-white rhetoric—if your gonads were as dimensionally impressive as we were led to believe, Mr. President, you would have issued an Executive Order renaming February as...

Wanted: an Alt Right Style Book. Did I coin the phrase “Cold Civil War”? It’s possible. I’ve been using the expression for four years. A Google search on the term finds “about 23,800 results,” none of them earlier than that in the half-dozen Google pages I could be bothered to view. Whether I coined it... Read More
The Russian mathematician Igor Shafarevich died last week, aged 93. There is a biography at the University of St. Andrews website. As well as being a significant mathematician, Shafarevich was also a notable dissident of the late-Soviet era—of the generation of Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Andrei Sakharov (who were five years and two years older than...

The Fake News story of the week also offered insights into just how insulated from reality our Goodwhites are. It started with President Trump telling a rally in Florida last Saturday that: You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden! —Who would believe this? Sweden! They... Read More

One usually doesn’t think of fashion models as skilled workers. President Donald Trump, married to a former fashion model, would beg to differ. And a good test of his commitment to patriotic immigration reform will be his willingness to persuade Congress to repeal legislation enabling foreign models to work here. That law is a part...

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times for nationalism in Europe. Patriot parties are leading the polls in major European countries, though this mass support doesn’t prevent them from invariably being described as “Far Right” by the Main Stream Media. But it’s unclear if any of these parties have a... Read More

Talk about fake news: before our very eyes, the Main Stream Media is attempting to disappear Sweden’s Muslim rape crisis after President Trump alluded to it in his Florida rally on Friday e.g. From an Anchor’s Lips to Trump’s Ears to Sweden’s Disbelief .

I’ve met more than my share of famous people, just because I’ve lived mostly in big metropolises and hung around with journalists a lot. Among those encounters: one with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, back in 1984. I wrote up an account in a column back in 2003. Well, His Holiness is still among us... Read More
Well, if you were wondering who really runs things in Washington, D.C.—where the real power lies—now you know: it’s with the intelligence agencies, with a little help from the Main Stream Media. Next question: why do they hate Russia so much? December 29th, the day still-President Barack Obama expelled a raft of Russian diplomats on... 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...

Berkeley Protest.  Credit: VDare.com.
There was no abatement of Lefty hysteria in this, the second week of the first Trump administration. The principal eruptions were: mobs of demonstrators at airports protesting a change to Customs and Immigration procedures; Main Stream Media denunciations of Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court; Hollywood airheads going Hitlery-Hitlery-Hitler at some glitzy awards ceremony; an...

Collective mass insanity. From a reader, edited for anonymity: After witnessing the Left’s response to Trump’s “Muslim Ban” I can only refer to one of your early diaries in which you said that “we are passing through a temporary period of collective mass insanity.” I still remember the pre-2001 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.

Some immigration patriots were disappointed with President Trump’s first day. (Mind if I just pause here and say “President Trump” a couple of times? I just like saying it. President Trump, President Trump! Thank you.) But as his first week closes, he’s made a flurry of announcements and it looks as though we shall get... Read More

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

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...

Each event was highly characteristic. My take: I for one am... Read More

Why Isn’t HIDDEN FIGURES About “Nazi Scientist” Arthur Rudolph?
In the movie Hidden Figures Americans are being brainwashed with the Fake History that we couldn’t have made it to the moon without sassy black women doing the math.

Last week, a Puerto Rican with mental problems shot up the Baggage Claim area at Fort Lauderdale airport, killing five people and wounding eight others. You know Puerto Rico.

A Tale Of Black Atrocity, MSM Lies, Justice System Failure–And Parental Agony
The Main Stream Media is working very hard right now to send down the Memory Hole the abduction and days-long torture of an 18-year-old disabled white man by four blacks (right)including one he pathetically thought was his friend, who (incredibly) livestreamed the atrocity on Facebook. Not coincidentally, there seems to be no national media coverage... Read More

The Main Stream Media consensus on the War on Christmas has long been a denial that there is such a thing—coupled with an insistence that, even if there might be, no one could possibly consider it an important issue. 2016 did not cooperate with this narrative, since the year saw discussion of the War on...

Reports Of Korea’s Self-Abolition Have Been Exaggerated
(Headline with apologies to Mark Twain). Immigration patriots have long been fascinated by nation-states that appear to be resisting globalist pressure to abolish themselves, like Japan and Israel. So some dismay greeted the report by Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost that multiculturalism had infected South Korea and that it was well down the path to Western-style... Read More

On Monday December 19, another Muslim murderer ran amok: twenty-three-year-old Tunisian immigrant Anis Amri hijacked a big rig and drove it into a crowd of Christmas shoppers in Berlin, Germany, killing twelve and injuring fifty. Three and a half days later, in the small hours of Friday morning, Amri was spotted by two cops in... Read More

Our Ruling Class’s anxieties about the Russians, and their anxieties about us, have a deckchairs-on-the-Titanic quality about them. Peering forward into the middle 21st century as best I am able, there are much bigger issues looming. Nine years ago I wrote a piece titled “The Arctic Alliance.” My argument, in a nutshell, was that the... Read More
The two big stories this week: “fake news” and Russia’s alleged manipulation of our election. Actually, in my opinion, they’re non-stories. In regard to fake news, I have a confession to make.

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.

Left Fights To Recapture Narrative—With Help From NATIONAL REVIEW
Well, that didn’t last long.
