Tucker had it coming. That seems to be the consensus among mainstream journalists after Tucker Carlson’s wife and family were threatened by an Antifa mob. Among those sympathizing with Antifa: Matthew Yglesias [Email him] of VOX.com, who scolded readers who “empathize with the fear of the Carlson family rather than with the fear of his... Read More

America is so divided, even the political clichés don’t work anymore. In professional wrestling, it’s called a “cheap pop”—an unnecessary reference to the home town designed to get the audience to give an automatic cheer. Politicians do the same by praising the history of whatever state or community they are in. But in post-America, the... Read More

“This is the beginning” said Faith Goldy last night after the end of her inspiring run for mayoralty of Toronto, Canada. Goldy finished in third place despite being locked out of the mayoral debates, having media conglomerates refuse to run her advertising, and generally being the subject of an unprecedented smear campaign.

[See Also: FBI Arrests White “Serial Rioters”—And Ignores Antifa by Gregory Hood] New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has blamed the “far-right” Proud Boys —and, needless to say, President Trump—for the violence that followed Proud Boys founder (and VDARE.com contributor) Gavin McInnes’ recent Metropolitan Republican Club speech. Cuomo called for a federal investigation and assigned “hate... Read More

Republicans may not be interested in racial politics, but racial politics is interested in them. Unfortunately, they have no idea how to respond—and it’s going to start costing them elections. Florida GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, running against black Democrat nominee Andrew Gillum, is currently reeling from a Fake News media controversy accusing him of... Read More

An Indispensable History For The Historic American Nation
If you want to know American history, the main place you need to avoid is the college campus. As Heather Mac Donald recently declared on FoxNews, colleges are now “hatred machines” that systematically teach tomorrow’s elite to despise this country and the people who created it [Heather Mac Donald: American Colleges Today Are “Hatred Machines”...

It isn’t surprising when a modern liberal judge simply redefines the law to mean something other than what it says. However, even in today’s America, it’s still shocking when a judge concedes the law indeed means what it says—and still decides that it doesn’t matter because he doesn’t like the alleged motivation behind enforcing the...

It’s the classic man-bites-dog story; a Leftist artist suffered a career setback because of his statements on social media. The person in question is Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who lost his gig directing Disney’s next installment in the film series after independent reporters such as Mike Cernovich highlighted his “jokes” about the...

Time for GOP To Confront The Emerging Totalitarian Left
It’s not that Main Stream Media journalists support Antifa—MSM journalists ARE Antifa. The alliance between the System’s street enforcers and its Narrative enforcers has become clearer than ever in recent weeks as MSM operatives denounce a new bill—sponsored by four Republican white males—that would impose harsh Federal penalties on the use of masks while undertaking...

The victory of Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) in the recent Mexican presidential election likely means an increase in immigration to the United States. AMLO has called immigration a “human right that we will defend” and will probably continue the Mexican government’s meddling in American affairs. AMLO has also reportedly promised to demand “respect” from... Read More

Or Is He Simply Protecting His Brand?
Dr. Jordan Peterson has been nothing short than a media phenomenon of late, with his arguments for individualism, the reality of IQ, and his critique of the existential spiritual crisis facing Western Man. Yet Dr. Peterson found himself stumped by a very easy argument, coming from, of all things, an Australian comedian.

What About A “Narrow” Vote On Official English/ E-Verify/ A Remittance Tax?
President Trump has apparently taken our advice and placed the immigration issue at the forefront of the upcoming midterms battle, hammering the Democrats at his exuberant rally in Nashville, TN.

In early 2016, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his country would no longer bomb the Islamic State. Defending this decision, the prime minister stated: “Call us old-fashioned, but we think that we ought to avoid doing precisely what our enemies want us to do. They want us to elevate, to give in to fear,... Read More

At least one Trump Effect is still working: When Republican candidates want to win, they champion immigration patriotism. Thus, in a special election Democrats were hoping to win, Republican candidate Debbie Lesko held off a strong challenge by explicitly supporting President Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexican border. Still, Lesko’s victory was far narrower than... Read More

The administration of President Donald Trump and the Republican majority he relies upon to avoid impeachment is in critical danger.

It was only two years ago that then-candidate Trump avoided the annual Conservative Political Action Conference [CPAC] because it looked likely he would be booed by “true conservatives.” At this year’s CPAC, both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were treated as conquering heroes, leading the Main Stream Media to declare the president’s...

It’s a truth of modern post-America that criticizing Political Correctness not only endangers your career, but enables Social Justice Warriors to demand concessions from your employers.

(Spoiler: Answer Is No If He Doesn’t Propose Taxing Remittances)
We will finally find out if the memes are real. In President Trump’s magisterial August 31, 2016 campaign speech on immigration in Arizona, he vowed he would “immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive Amnesties.” Today, President Trump says he is offering Democrats a “wonderful deal” on DACA, including a pathway to citizenship.

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.
