Reddit has just quarantined The_Donald, the single biggest Trump support forum on the Internet. The_Donald played a critical role in the 2016 elections, helping generate a lot of the memetic momentum that propelled Trump to the Presidency. Considering his narrow margin of victory, it's entirely possible that Trump would have been stumped without The_Donald. True,... Read More
What do the current legal travails of a Russian "oligarch" (he has zero power) in Monaco actually have to do with him having gotten involved in a real estate transaction ("money laundering") with Bad Orange Man a decade ago? Let's have a look at housing prices in Florida: As one can see, they did indeed... Read More
I don't really have much to add beyond what I said on RT Crosstalk, and what Alexander Mercouris wrote here and here. The month long reprieve Trump had gained with his Syrian human sacrifice is over, and the Swamp creatures are back, baying for his blood with renewed zeal.
Time to fess up: I have been cucked by The Donald. I outline many of my longer articles on Evernote. I don't suppose this one is going to be written anytime soon, so I'm just reprinting the notes in almost unredacted form. Public humiliation is part of the cuckoldry fetish, after all. I suppose the... Read More
Or so the fake news industry wants you to think. Latest exhibit in a vast museum: This Reuters "investigation" of the share of Russian ownership in Trump properties in southern Florida. Assuming the average Russian bought between one and two Trump properties, that means they 63*2/2044 = 3.1%-6.2% of them. $98.4 million / $2 billion... Read More
Trump is a virtuoso at playing the media. He mentioned he'd ban the burning of the American flag - the media rushed to show Leftists burning the American flag. He promoted the observation that many hate crimes were hoaxes - soon after, it emerged that the author of the threats against Jewish centers was a... Read More
Okay so everyone and his mother and dog knows Sweden is basically a meme country at this point: Immigrants consume more gibs than natives. Account for 75% of rapes. Newspapers "whiten" the faces of criminal suspects as a matter of policy (still manages to top all the free speech/media indices) Scowling array of feminist politicians... Read More
The Trump administration is endlessly accused of having had contacts with Russian officials during the election campaign, as if that was a Very Bad Thing. In reality is it not only standard diplomatic practice, but it is something that the US has always done itself - and usually from the other wise of the fence.... Read More
Putin Derangement Syndrome and Trump Derangement Syndrome continue moving towards an ever more perfect union. Problem is: Putin is not actually a proponent of extreme nationalism, let along its godfather. At least, not according to the people who would presumably know best: The vast majority of, like, actual Russian nationalists. They tend to consider Putin... Read More
What a coincidence according to Bloomberg's Josh Rogin, a journalist who has been been one of the more outspoken ones in demanding intervention against Assad, that a billionaire businessman with a global hotel chain would have ever wished to explore business opportunities in Russia. Trump’s Long Romance With Russia: Why practically nobody else was doing... Read More
I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.
One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.
Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
