Let us be clear on what free speech truly is. The words people speak, write, tweet; the beliefs they are known to hold, the flags they fly, the symbolic, non-violent ceremonies and rituals they enact, the insignia, paraphernalia, the goose-stepping, Hitler salutes they dick around with—all that is protected speech, licit in natural law. So... Read More
In “The Illusion of Liberal Democracy—America’s Long Record of Destruction Continues,” Dr. Boyd Cathey deploys the term the “long march,” generally associated with the Communist Chinese Revolution of Chairman Mao, to describe decades in which successive American administrations have romped through other countries’ institutions in an unabashed quest to impose universal “freedom and equality” à...

In Idiocracy, Mike Judge’s genius of a satire (really a documentary, if you think about it), Luke Wilson plays Joe Bowers, frozen by the military in 2005, “who accidentally wakes up in 2505 to find a broken-down, thuggish America, where language has become a patois of football chants, hip-hop slang and grunts denoting rage, pleasure...

All nations now are expected to have found religion on Ukraine. As I pointed out at the start of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, from Covid submission, we the zombie subjects of the new, global order—for citizens we are not—were directed to shuffle along, shipshape, into a new compliance, this time over Ukraine. In other words, agree... Read More
Based on observing The Empire's workings over decades, I’d hazard that President Volodymyr Zelensky is probably being fiercely guarded by Americans, possibly by a private, paramilitary security company. Something like Sean McFate's DynCorp outfit, or Russia's Wagner Group. Or even perhaps Ukraine’s own Einsatzgruppen, the Azov regiment. MORE in support of my assumption, for that... Read More
The masses crave an opiate. Their political overlords know how to exploit the attendant and innate tendency for groupthink. As soon as the usefulness of one faith (Covid) expires; another takes its place (Ukraine), courtesy of the ruling elites, and with the complicity of the crowds. Now that Covid conformity has been replaced with the... Read More
THE HYPOCRISY and sanctimony playing out over the corporate media outlets about Putin's savagery is galling. For example, on Feb. 28, Sean Hannity proclaimed that a murdering thug of a leader who invades a sovereign country and kills innocent people needs to know that he will be forthrightly removed. Mark Esper, Trump’s defense secretary, concurred.... Read More
As the eponymous title of our podcast promises, my partner David Vance and I dish out the “Hard Truth” about the emergency situation unraveling—or, is it wrapping up?—in Canada. Although our side won the first round—Canadian dicktator Justine Trudeau having suddenly caved and revoked the unconstitutional emergency powers seized for no good reason shortly after... Read More

WHERE in the story of the travails of the World’s heroes, the Canadian Truckers for Freedom, are we? Justine Trudeau, who fled like a girl into hiding when the lorry drivers, kids in tow, first arrived in Ottawa, has done what this writer had feared he’d do: After instituting some of the most diabolical Covid... Read More
Today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Familiar Lincoln idolaters will gather to celebrate the birth, on Feb. 12, 1809, of the 16th President of the United States, and finesse his role in "the butchering business"—to use Prof. J. R. Pole's turn-of-phrase. Court historian Doris Kearns Goodwin is sure to make a media appearance to extol the... Read More
As this column pointed out in 2014, “the struggle for Ukraine” is a chapter in a series of US orchestrated provocations, which began with the expansion of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) eastward to abut Russia’s borders—an expansion begun by President Clinton and pursued by Bush and Obama alike. It gathered momentum with the US-backed... Read More
A day after the January 16th hostage-taking at the Colleyville Beth Israel synagogue in Texas, near Fort Worth, the media reported that, “FBI and local police breached the building and ended the hostages’ 12-hour ordeal.” Details were murky and the media, ever malfunctioning, remained chronically incurious about the story’s nuances. Unclear was what transpired toward... Read More
America has made a habit of exporting democracy at the point of the bayonet, be it by fomenting war or agitating for color-coded, plant-based revolutions, blessed and backed by the duopoly. While not as lethal, cultural trends and products exported can be toxic, too. They, moreover, displace and contaminate indigenous culture. To wit, Wokeism is... Read More
The anniversary of January 6 is upon us. In deranged Democrat nomenclature, “It was an insurrection”—apparently the deadliest in U.S. history. To their disgrace, Jan. 6 has indeed become the Democrat’s 9/11. Deplorables should rejoice for the Democrats are having a fit, and that’s fun. Rejoice, but do not partake in or dignify the production.... Read More
If America's so free and fair, why is Julian Assange, innocent in natural law, so terrified of being extradited to the USA? And why must journalist Glenn Greenwald live abroad, after heroically helping whistleblower Edward Snowden, now safely ensconced in Russia? American heroes living abroad for fear of the American Security State? Time perhaps to... Read More

Fareed Zakaria is a CNN serial plagiarizer. Like another CNN offender, online onanist Jeffrey Toobin, Zakaria is forever forgiven and brought back from literary purgatory, to inflict mediocre, user-friendly, neoliberal/neoconservative statecraft and foreign policy on viewers who're none the wiser. Zakaria recently broadcast a television special, “China’s Iron Fist." He called China “The most serious... Read More
This week, David Vance and your columnist talk to Anne Wilson Smith, author of “Charlottesville Untold: Inside Unite the Right.” This is BIG, folks—a Big Soviet Lie à la America. Not that you’d know this from the malfunctioning media, but the 2017 rally in Virginia to protest the removal of the statue of Robert E.... Read More
South Africa has practiced and modeled good science and good sense. Dr. Angelique Coetzee (pronounced koot-see-a) was among the first to alert South African epidemiologists to what has now been named the omicron variant of COVID-19. Or, as dubbed here, the “OMG! variant.” A calm clinician, Coetzee had deduced that what she was seeing in... Read More
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to release the data upon which it relied to license Pfizer’s mRNA Covid-19 vaccine by the year … 2076, over the course of the next 55 years! What this means is that the FDA has de facto classified this data—belatedly requested, via the Freedom of Information Act,... Read More
For Republicans it is impossible to mention white suffering without dragging in the "black experience."
For the longest time, the American People—an inchoate concept that sadly no longer means much—have endured great wrongs. Examples of these wrongs are en masse legal and illegal immigration, open-borders, the kind of multilateral trade deals that immiserate, impoverish, and hollow out communities once staid and settled. And now, vaccine mandates: Take the State’s hemlock... Read More
Working Brits have more COVID liberty than Americans – really! On vax mandates, Pfizer's 'new' pill, and the latest on...
America, wake up! The British, from whom we seceded for freedom’s sake, don't have vaccine mandates. These particular individual rights are more protected in the UK than in the US. This week’s Hard Truth with David Vance and ilana Mercer teases out the difference between British and American vaccine-mandate tyranny: The US loses. And, it’s... Read More
The Learjet liberals—the world’s wokerati—flew into Glasgow, Scotland, to plot against gasoline, goshawks (birdies) and you. The annual “Conference of the Parties” (COP26), as well as Joe Biden’s plans for greenhouse-gas pollution reduction and clean-energy technologies demand the following reminders: Gasoline is a glorious resource. Drilling for oil is the second most efficient, cheapest—and hence... Read More
It matters not that the few "Republican governors crusading against vaccine mandates are [allegedly] facing significantly lower approval ratings on their handling of the coronavirus pandemic than their counterparts," as Politico purports. (Don't believe Politico!) What matters is that governors like Texas' Greg Abbott, who "flat-out banned vaccine requirements, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, followed... Read More
The West is collapsing under the weight of authoritarian governments. These “representatives” are rapidly robbing the individual citizen of bodily autonomy, of freedom of movement, and of the ability to work, play and partake in society. Under martial law, Australia and New Zealand have, in the course of the Covid pandemic, practically reverted to penal-colony... Read More
America’s crumbling education system is in the news. On October 5th, Joe Biden managed to disgorge some dismal indicators as to the future prospects of America’s youth compared to the rest of the developed world. Joe didn’t quite say it, but America’s kids, the product of an obscenely well-funded school system, rank last in the... Read More
Think you’ve heard it all about medicrat Anthony Fauci? Well, there are a few things you still don’t know about the foolish Fauci. That’s because all other news analysts, left and right, have an agenda. “Hard Truth,” with David Vance and yours truly, has only one agenda: unvarnished, nonpartisan truth. Between March 5 and April... Read More
‘Whip Or Rein’ Was Never The Question
Let’s see: Heroic horsemen rode to the rescue at Del Rio, Texas, along the U.S.-Mexico border. Republicans could’ve whipped the open-border Democrat degenerates with a first-principles case for sovereignty and self-defense, the thing Border Patrol horsemen were exercising so instinctively. Instead, the Right chose to beat around the bush, sweating the redundant details: “Was it... Read More
This column is Part 3 of a 3-part series. Read Part 1, “Big Tech’s Financial Terrorism And Social Excommunication” and Part 2, “Justice Thomas’ Solution to Big Tech’s Social And Financial Excommunication.” ** It is inarguable that by financially crippling and socially segregating, and banishing politically irksome people and enterprises—the Big Tech cartel is flouting...

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson appears in thrall to Lara Logan’s political observations—to her “philosophical” meditations, too. Although treated as a Delphic oracle of sorts; Logan is no Roger Scruton. You might have heard Logan claim, recently and repetitively, that everything in the world is simple. “Everything is simple,” she keeps intoning in her appearances on... Read More
Fox News celebrity anchors and their tough-talking guests continue to trip over one another to talk up the wonders of our Afghan allies and the legions of Afghan Americans who have American citizenship, but happen to hang out a lot in Afghanistan. It’s a terrible affront, they all say, that America has failed to lift... Read More
Establishing a functioning centralized state in Afghanistan didn't work. Neither did the backend Deep State take in that country: Corruption runs deep in Afghanistan, but it's a decentralized affair. Even so, it would appear that the "U.S. government helped the country set up" a mini-American Surveillance State, namely, "the ability to wiretap and monitor phone... Read More
With the American media as master of ceremonies, pundits and politicians—all partners in the neocon-neoliberal joint venture in Afghanistan—are barking mad over the images coming out of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, and the reality these optics portend. Naturally, media “reporting” from Afghanistan is nothing but an unremitting sentimental gush, aimed at creating... Read More
Yes, we know it was chaos, but then again there was no good way to leave that dusty hellhole—or “shithole,” as the much-missed Donald Trump would have put it. Joe Biden was right in his "Remarks on Afghanistan": "... if Afghanistan is unable to mount any real resistance to the Taliban now, there is no... Read More
This column is Part 2 of a 3-part series. Read Part 1, "Big Tech's Financial Terrorism And Social Excommunication.” PAYPAL HOLDINGS, Inc, is an indispensable, American, global corporation, without whose services, financially transacting online is difficult. The company is worth $16.929 billion. The worthless Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is a meddlesome shakedown operation, in the mold... Read More
Republican solutions to Big Tech tyranny do not begin to address financial de-platforming, the cancellation of citizen dissidents en masse, including the infringement of the right to partake in the public square and make a living. In their weak case against Deep Tech (“Deep” to denote enmeshment with The State), Republicans are still defending only... Read More
Menstrual America has gained the upper hand. Feminized America has been on display in all her undignified inauthenticity, in the crybabies of Congress and in the loud and proud quitting at the 2020 Olympics. In Menstrual America, medals go to congressmen and cops who wail the loudest when recounting their professional failings on Jan. 6,... Read More
What are our conservative “kids” thinking? I went in search of one such elusive creature and found Rob Shimshock, DC-based editor. In May, he published his first book, “Nightmare Crescendo: Breaking the Chokehold of Woke Capital.” In the dialogue below, Rob patiently explains the idiom in which he expresses his ideas, political and social. Amazon... Read More
Against the backdrop of conflagration in South Africa, I offer positive commentary about the country of my birth. Do I need to provide a disclaimer before saying positive things about South Africa mid-riots? Probably—given that I’m the author of a scathing, 2011–dare I say prescient?– indictment of the political dispensation forced upon South Africa by... Read More
Paleolibertarian ilana Mercer: On First Principles, The Person Vs. The Polemicist And Life After Politics Conservatives MUST Recognize Aggregate Group Differences While Cherishing the Individual The Controlled Opposition: Candace On Tucker Is Wrong About The Riot & Rut Crowd (Or, “The Democrat Ate Their Homework Argument”) https://rumble.com/embed/vgnmc5/?pub=fyb9t
“The matriarchy is merciless, and it has thoroughly feminized and twisted US law,” this writer wrote, in April of 2018, upon the sentencing and jailing of comedian Bill Cosby. Cosby had been found “guilty” “of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb... Read More
When a bloodbath becomes a bacchanalia
In an era where everything is captured on camera; the cold-blooded murder of Gyovanny Arzuaga and Yasmin Perez remains particularly galling. The occasion was the Puerto Rican Day Parade in Chicago, Saturday last. The location: West Division Street on the Northwest Side, at Humboldt Park. South Africa style—and for no good reason—a bunch of “fellas,”... Read More
My 2011 book, “Into the cannibal’s Pot: Lessons For America From Post-Apartheid South Africa,” rests on two axiomatic truths, and I excerpt (pp 40-41 & 126-128, 2011): “In all, no color should be given to the claim that race is not a factor in the incidence of crime in the US and in South Africa.... Read More
There is this New York City psychiatrist. Her name is Aruna Khilanani. For convenience, I will call her Aruna KhilaWhiteMan. It’s apropos—and “white privilege” makes it hard for me to pronounce her name. (Mind you, my faithful anti-Semitic readers, whose loyalty I appreciate, assure me that as a Jew, I’m not Caucasian. My mother, a... Read More
For the purpose of making your way adaptively and smartly in a society that is systemically anti-white, you need to understand what distinguishes Critical Race Theory from Marxism and quit the socialism/Marxism theoretical escapism, for once and for all. Get this into your head: For conflict in society, Marxism fingers social class; critical race theory... Read More
Prior to being shot in the head, this week, by four brothers in a melee at a wild party, Sasha Johnson, of the British chapter of Black Lives Matter, had big plans for whites. Johnson had been “calling for a ‘racial offenders register’ that would see those guilty of ‘microaggressions’ banned from living in multicultural... Read More
In his 2004 foreword to my book Broad Sides, Peter Brimelow, the man who penned everything there is to say about America’s immigration disaster, in 1996, wrote this: “… somewhat to my surprise, it is actually quite rare for this most emotionally intense of columnists to draw on … personal experiences. What seems to motivate... Read More
This week, Unz Review columnist ILANA Mercer and British broadcaster and commentator David Vance discussed “Systemic Anti-Whiteness” in the US and across the pond. Watch their wide-ranging conversation on YouTube: Catch the abridged rendition of the Unz Review essay upon which the Vance-Mercer conversation is based (“Earth To Conservatives: The Problem Is ‘Systemic Anti-Whiteness,’ Not... Read More
Institutionalized, systemic anti-whiteness, yoked to white hot, hatred of whites: That is the creed that is fast becoming entrenched across state and civil society in the U.S. Chiseled down, these are also the building blocks of Critical Race Theory, a specious, subintelligent concoction, originated by subpar intellectuals. The Critical Race project now pervades private and... Read More
Watch Ilana Mercer's discussion with David Vance on the role of “racism” in the George Floyd trial, based on the column, “Was The Cop’s Knee On George Floyd’s Neck ‘Racism’? No!”
Fancy that! A member of a meritless political dynasty, The McCains, has panned the duty-bound British monarchy. There is a revolving door between Big Media, be it the neoliberal CNN or neocon Fox News, and members of the political duopoly. Whether practiced by the Left or the Right; this is indisputably immoral, and a conflict... Read More
