National Review published a statement about “America’s Crisis of Self-Doubt.” The magazine says the signers are speaking for only for themselves, but movement conservatism’s flagship magazine published it. The statement grandly declares that the signers are “devotees of America,” but fails to say what America is and who built it. It’s an uncertain trumpet rather than a call to battle. The signers want us to defend liberalism from itself.

Considering some of them, such as John Podhoretz, Erick Erickson, and Dan Crenshaw, this isn’t surprising. However, if figures including John O’Sullivan and Charles Murray thought this was worthy of support, we should take it seriously.

The statement says that the “American project is under assault,” a bizarre way to view one’s country. A real nation is not a “project.” A real nation is blood and history.

The signers write:

Our history is the subject of a revisionist critique that is all-encompassing, unsparing, and very often flatly inaccurate. Our traditional heroes are under threat of being run out of the national pantheon. Our institutions, from elections to the job market to law enforcement, stand accused of perpetuating a systemic racism that is impossible to eradicate. Our educational system, from kindergarten through graduate school, is increasingly a forum for crude propagandizing. Our system of government is attacked as archaic, unfair, and racially biased. Our traditional values of fair play, free speech, and religious liberty are trampled by inflamed ideologues determined to impose their will by force and fear.

Whose history is “our” history? Which people’s “traditional heroes” are being attacked? Who built “our institutions?” The words “white,” “West,” and “Europe,” never appear.

The authors are probably referring to the 1619 Project when they talk about distortions to American history, but the iconoclasm unleashed after George Floyd’s death didn’t just happen. Decades of academic and media incitement against whites and their history paved the way. National Review’s attempt in 2020 to get a separate peace for the Founding Fathers while letting Confederate heroes be toppled failed. Now, the signers are trying to set up another defensive line. Leftists will overrun this one, too.

The statement fails for three reasons. First, it says America is “fundamentally fair,” conceding the ground that America must be justified on the grounds of “fairness.” Second, it says that America’s “original sins” have been “honorably, if belatedly repudiated.” This concedes that America had “original sins” to apologize for. Finally, it says America became “wealthy and powerful primarily through its own internal strengths, not via expropriation and conquest.” Almost every nation is the result of conquest. These are conservatives begging leftists to allow America to continue because it is liberal.

Claiming that America is “fundamentally fair” doesn’t satisfy leftists who want reasons for racial gaps in wealth, education, and crime rates. Charles Murray is one of the signers of this document. He knows the reasons, and it’s a shame he didn’t explain it to his co-signers.

You can’t explain racial gaps without considering biological realities. If the American conservative movement won’t go that far, it will lose every debate about fairness. Unless you are willing to discuss racial differences, you can’t answer progressives who claim that systemic racism explains all differences.

If the sole explanation for racial differences is white racism, practically unlimited government action is justified to achieve equality. Ibram Kendi’s proposed Anti-Racist Constitutional Amendment may sound crazy, but it’s the logical conclusion of “colorblind” thought, not just modern Critical Race Theory. Conservatives and libertarians may not be comfortable talking about this, but they are going to have to get used to it.

Trying to fit American history into modern, progressive morality is a fool’s errand. White Americans don’t need to apologize for our history. There is no American history without us. There is no America without us.

The non-white group with the most historically rooted claim to American identity (as opposed to an indigenous identity), black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS), were not considered part of the original American nation. The Founders were racially aware and thought they were creating a white nation. America’s first immigration law, the 1790 United States Naturalization Law, limited citizenship to “free white person[s]” of “good character.” Citing this law and the 1792 militia law that required enrollment in the militia for every “free able-bodied white male citizen,” Chief Justice Roger Taney ruled that blacks were not and were never intended to be part of “the people of the United States.”

ADOS have a claim to being Americans, but America would be better off if they had never come. America would be less divided without blacks, and most of America’s early leaders knew this. That’s why they formed the American Colonization Society. Many Americans may be uncomfortable with this, but refusing to accept it, defend it, and consider its consequences cedes the ground to progressives.

People such as Nikole Hannah-Jones may have specific facts about American history wrong but Critical Race Theorists and progressive historians understand a larger truth: America was made by and for whites. One could argue that being American now doesn’t necessitate being white, but that wasn’t true for most of American history. Samuel Huntington, probably the greatest political scientist of the last century, argued in Who Are We? that until recently, America’s core ethnic identity didn’t even extend beyond Anglo-Saxon Protestantism.

For most of American history, our country’s triumphs were white triumphs. Blacks, Mexicans, or American Indians can’t be expected to celebrate historic American victories over blacks, Mexicans, and Indians. Most blacks, quite reasonably, won’t think slavery has been “honorably, if belatedly repudiated” until every monument to every slaveholder (including George Washington) comes down, American identity is fundamentally redefined, and reparations are paid. Even if whites surrender and do all these things, whites will continue to outperform blacks. If we can’t discuss racial differences, we’ll be eternally paying off non-whites for our invented sins. Racism’s definition will keep changing to justify new allocations of wealth and power.

The signers are right that Americans built their wealth and power rather than stealing it from others. The greatest wound we ever inflicted on ourselves was the War Between the States, a consequence of the presence of blacks in this country. However, again, progressive historians are closer to the mark when they argue that the very existence of the United States is an act of conquest.

Our ancestors were conquerors, pioneers, and explorers. The relationship between whites and Indians was complicated and there were many Indian nations, not a monolithic whole. Nonetheless, whites took a continent that was once the exclusive preserve of American Indians. Our national and racial identity was birthed in blood when white settlers defied American Indians’ attempt to drive us off. We should honor our heritage as a conquering, victorious people, rather than apologizing for it or denying it.

The signers are right that there is a cultural offensive against American patriotism, history and identity. However, they offer no solution. The statement says we must rely on the “common sense and decency of the American people.” Who are the American people? If anyone who wanders across the border is an “American,” free speech will die because non-whites don’t want it. If white Americans are replaced in the only country we have, our institutions and cultural norms the signers claim to value will die. This is so obvious it’s almost embarrassing to argue it, yet that’s more than the signers can do. They never mention immigration.

Do Americans still have “common sense and decency?” Debates about transgender education in elementary schools would have horrified almost all Americans just a decade ago. However, we’ve learned that moral principles can be changed very quickly following concerted media campaigns. To build a movement on ever-shifting values is to build a castle on sand.

October 29, 2018 – New York City – Hundreds of New York’s transgender community rallied in downtown Manhattan  to condemn the leaked Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) memo that seeks to redefine sex in federal law as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth.

The signers appeal to “voluntary associations” and “churches” to check “edicts from Washington.” However, the Civil Rights Act gives the federal government the power to disrupt or destroy those associations if they don’t accept racial orthodoxy. The statement’s references to the “rule of law, federalism, and the protections of the U.S. Constitution” seem fanciful. These things shatter if they conflict with civil rights law or complaints about disparate impact. An increasingly non-white population, trained in claims of victimization, guarantees such conflicts will occur more often.

“[T]here is no substitute for the hard work of public persuasion,” says the statement. In the face of censorship on social media and the economic threats faced by political dissidents, one wonders if this isn’t a cynical joke. “Public persuasion” means little in a rigged marketplace of ideas. For public persuasion to work, conservatives would need to buy Alphabet, Twitter, Meta Platforms, and TikTok and take over the education system. How exactly is “public persuasion” going to work when the mainstream media works with far-left radicals to deplatform dissidents?

National Review purged figures such as Peter Brimelow, John Derbyshire, and Robert Weissberg for opinions far more moderate than the ones William F. Buckley held when he started the magazine. The conservative movement’s history is defined by purges that maintain a weak, submissive, phony opposition to America’s constant leftward, anti-white drift. We’re in this mess largely because the conservative movement stabbed its best writers in the back.

The signers vow to defy the “illiberalism ascendent on college campuses and elsewhere” and the “rampaging anti-Americanism of our elite culture.” One could argue that liberalism, “classical” or otherwise, put us in this situation and shouldn’t be defended. However, I am a free speech absolutist for political questions. I would join the signers in this fight, but they offer no weapons.

Instead, they presume to lecture “those on the right [who] have become disenchanted with the American project and are prepared to quit on it on grounds that it is already lost or hopelessly corrupted.” White patriots didn’t quit on America. America quit on whites. The Biden Administration, against all evidence, says we are the greatest threat. We are under no moral obligation to prop up a “project” when that project seems to delight in replacing us and insulting us.

Until racial preferences against whites are ended, immigration laws enforced, and the unconstitutional Civil Rights Act of 1964 repealed, we owe no moral fealty to our rulers. We should instead regard them as occupiers. I will nevertheless join the signers in saying that I am thankful for America. I am thankful because we have slightly more freedom to organize than most of our European kin elsewhere. That may not last long. When demographics shift far enough, it will be gone.

A majority non-white America has no use for the tattered scraps of law and symbolism that the signers are desperately trying to use as a flag. Instead of propping up what is falling, we should push. Before we can try to save America, we must save ourselves.

Perhaps such rhetoric makes me a “white nationalist.” If so, I join a group that would include the Founding Fathers, those who conquered the West, the soldiers of almost every American army and most Americans until just a few decades ago. If the NR signers’ America has no place for white advocates, it has no place for those who founded this country. Whatever the failings of leftist historians, they understand this better than American conservatives.

The signers are right to say there is a crisis of self-doubt, but it’s not the one they describe. Whites are ashamed of who they are. Our rulers have told us this must be so. White advocates tell whites to resist. When enough of us do resist, America’s identity crisis will fade and we can retake what is ours.

At this late stage, it’s hard to believe movement conservatives don’t see that, but maybe they would rather lose everything they claim to love rather than talk about race. I call that cowardice.

    Hood’s thesis is that a nation is a going concern. By definition does a nation does what it must do to continue existing, and is not nor can it be a set of moral absolutes accompanied by a set of rules that must be followed to obtain these absolutes.

    As nations fail worldwide, Hood’s thesis is increasingly dominant. As nations continue to fail worldwide, Hood’s thesis will become more dominant yet. Just as central control of economic matters failed with the USSR, central control of morals is failing in the West, and begins to resemble a set of lies that are arbitrarily interpreted. The current moral system produces one horror after another: castrating children, killing newborns while often leaving their mothers crippled by guilt, killing the old when their money runs out, persecuting mothers, making fatherhood in families impossible, aggressively breaking up families, forcing organizations to hire and promote the incompetent precisely because the promoted are incompetent. The current moral system has run through its social capital. Nobody believes that stuff anymore, although many people pretend to so that they will not be assaulted or falsely charged.
    The current system has also run through its physical infrastructure capital and its industrial capital.
    Finally, the current system has run through its leadership human capital. Its leaders are either senile or foreigners raised as foreigners but now possessing US passports, and they tell obvious lies as if their words defined truth. Right now the US is ruled and run by a foreigner using a senile man as a puppet, a foreigner who rules by violating the separation of powers, the most basic design of American government.

    This affects everybody in the US. Blacks that have to live in the Black areas are just as subject to the above as are Whites who live in White areas, just as unhappy, and poorer. Same for Hispanics. Not the same for various recent first generation immigrants with H1B passports, of course.

    As Hood implies, the present US is not a going concern; one could call it a “stopping concern”. As the system stops, Hood’s thesis will gain yet wider credence, and eventually (quite possibly the current mishandling of the Ukraine/Russian Federation conflict) will be rejected. It will be replaced, as Hood suggests, by something some sort of “going concern” that will, of necessity, pay very little attention to the current “American project”.

    Missing the point was why National Review was created in the first place, it was always there to make whites look away from their racial replacement and make them think that their fake “conservatism” was real. Problem for the NR is that they are no longer useful idiots (just idiots), the left has no use for them anymore since they now have total power. Soon there will be a NR article with title “The conservative case for critical race theory”.

    A kind of America can be salvaged. Pretty easily. Bring back strong law and order, lock up criminals for very long stretches as was done in NYC by Rudy Giuliani. They took a dying, 50% White city at the time and managed to make it work for 25 more years. Eliminate affirmative action, return to meritocracy, cut the size of federal government, reduce immigration, regulations and taxes and the US can remain a “going concern” for another hundred years. It’s possible, soon, very soon it might not be.

  8. The dictionary defines conservative as “disposed to preserve existing conditions” and as a political party “whose characteristic position is opposition to change.” And there is the problem, the idea (which originated in classical Greece) that there was once a “golden age” in which all things were good and wisely done; and now we must endure a disappointing “age of rust” because we have rejected the supposedly eternal virtues of the past.

    Utter nonsense. We have lost interest in the ideas of people who came before us because they have exhausted whatever usefulness they might once have possessed, in a world which no longer functions as it once did. And are we not forgetting that when we say, and correctly, that “America was made for whites,” we mean white Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Not German or Irish Catholics, or Italians or Poles or Greek or Russian Orthodox. Those of us who claim such ancestry are interlopers in the original social order just as surely as the ghetto-dwelling assassins that haunt the nightmares that some us just can’t seem to be able to wake up from.

    The earliest rules and regulations of the United States recognized all Europeans as ‘White’ and eligible to own property and vote. The original British settlers were a mixture of Englishmen, Scotsmen, Welshmen, and Irishmen. There was a healthy dose of Dutchmen, especially after the treaty that gave them New York, as well as quite a few Frenchmen and eventually Germans. The majority were English Protestants, of course, but when you look at the names of many of the original pioneers, they aren’t all Wasps.

    The National Review’s influence was substantially about one man. William F. Buckley. Like him or hate him.. Agree or disagree… Everyone acknowledges he deftly wielded two skills rarely found together he was both a “great thinker” and a “great communicator”.

    Since Buckley’s passing, NR has lacked both analysis and the ability to change minds. Clinging to archaic concepts such as “conservative” rendered NR incapable of adapting to the current situations both domestic and abroad. The old spectrum “liberal-conservative” does not work any more. The current DNC is definitely no longer “liberal”. One could argue that Democrats do not even deserve the appellation “progressive”.

    Rallying to MAGA values such as U.S. Reindustrialization and decoupling from CCP controlled China are actively Populist (not passively conservative). Trump and DeSantis are “great communicators” for the most immediate MAGA policies. What needs to develop are venues for MAGA to find “great thinkers” capable of separating wheat from chaff ideas/policies when it comes to more difficult future endeavours.

    “Anglo-Saxons” looking down on Germans is hilarious enough in itself. Judaism is the only ‘major’ religion which is based on race. “Protestants” are not a race or ethnic group. Before 1535, almost all Englishmen were dutiful Catholics (the young Henry VIII was a particular Defender of the Faith). The only significant difference between the original Church of England and the Catholic Church was Papal Authority. If the Pope had granted Henry VIII’s request for an annulment, the whole CoE thing would never have happened. What an inspiring religious heritage!

    My father subscribed to NR for years, and so I can remember reading about NR’s opposition to the Civil Rights Act of ’64. To read columns from that time, you could imagine that David Duke was the editor. And then in the mid-70s, NR couldn’t recommend “The Camp of the Saints” often enough. Not exactly a big ‘open borders’ point of view there. I blame the total Leftist take-over of college Social Studies Departments after 1960, plus NR’s unfortunate location in NYC, which is the global capitol of anti-Americanism.

    [National Review] was always there to make whites look away from their racial replacement and make them think that their fake “conservatism” was real.

    I applaud your sentiments but NR wasn’t always this way. For one thing, when NR was launched (some 60 years ago) there was no ‘racial replacement’ underway. This era was before ‘immigration reform’ had any impact on American life and demographics. But there was court-ordered ‘de-segregation’, which NR founder and editor, Wm. F. Buckley, opposed.

    Wm. F. Buckley was no flunky for liberal causes or modern attitudes about race or immigration. Buckley had balls back then.

    Buckley’s numerous, multi-hour debates on a variety of explosive subjects were generally outstanding and often brilliant. Buckley was a unique force and a great debater. Buckley had class. He was also undeniably brilliant.

    Later, CNN’s ‘Crossfire’ with Pat Buchanan became another extraordinary program in the history of American television. In my mind, Buckley and Buchanan are the top two (conservative) public intellectuals in the second half of the 20th century.

    Even though Buckley later tossed aside great men such as Joe Sobran (to please his ‘donors’) Buckley was still a influential, anti-Leftist spokesman for decades. He was nobody’s fool either, though–like everyone on TV–he did (in general) accommodate the Jews (though not entirely.)

    Buckley was virtually alone in allowing pro-Palestinian voices to be heard on his excellent TV interview show, ‘Firing Line’. Buckley even had John M. Cuddihy (author, ‘The Ordeal of Civility’) on as a guest. Today, an intellectual like Cuddihy would be smeared as ‘Nazis’ and preemptively censored on any of the legacy networks, including PBS.

    As a young man with a sense that America was headed in the wrong direction on many issues back then, I admired Buckley greatly. I still appreciate what he accomplished in the face of entrenched (((liberal))) media hegemony.

    Later in life, Buckley became surrounded by neo-conservatives and he pretty much threw in the towel as a dissident, right-wing intellectual.

    But up until that time (end of cold war) Buckley was a vital voice in a sea of conformist, televised liberalism. He inspired me.

    Buckley’s big dream in life was to be a high note in New York City’s social set. Norman Podhoretz started making right wing noises in the 1970s and there was no way Buckley was going to pass up a chance like that.

    Podhoretz met Reagan thanks to Buckley, and NR began the total submission to neoconservatives, then the toilet. Joe Sobran, a real conservative, was given the bum’s rush, the welcome mat was pulled for real rightist scholars like Mel Bradford, and so on.

The great free public school system of America . Created by Anglo Saxon Protestants so everyone could the Jewish, not the Christian part of the Bible. Look at it now.

    Every sector of America that was once a WASP stronghold was taken over by communist E European Jews in the early and mid 20 the cebturt

    BTW, Priscilla’s father was the man who sold enough real estate to finance the Mayflower expedition after the Pilgrims turned down the Virginia Company’s contract that would have made them basically serfs.

    The real reason the Pilgrims left England was sheer hatred of Christianity. They could not bear living in a country where the traditional Holy Days of Christianity such as Easter Christmas Pentecost etc were celebrated.

    England wasn’t really Anglo Saxon. The bulk of the population were indigenous Celts ruled by Norman French descended from Scandinavians

    There used to be a list of ten best dressed women. A very big deal at the time. The ladies were featured in all the women’s fashion magazines. Even in magazines like Time and Newsweek. The newspapers lifestyle sections always featured the yearly list of best dressed women.

    They were the mostly NYC women who spent the most money that year in clothes. Very few from the south Midwest or west coast. Except a woman from San Francisco, Nan Kemper of Kemper insurance and Mellon bank.

    Pat Buckley, Bill Buckley’s wife was always in that list. Shows you what the Buckley ambitions were.

    I remember an article against minimum wage. Claimed employers would hire all the employed. But all the jobs I ever had sufficient workers. I thought where would all these new workers sit stand walk around? Most workplaces there’s really no room for more people.

    And how would \$3 or 4 dollar an hour workers get to work? Busfare isn’t that cheap. Could they afford to do laundry men get their hair cut? Would they pay rent or sleep in the sidewalk?

    NR was very supportive of the 1980s when Regean was President de industrialization and moving the factories to China and customer service to India and the Philippines too. Practically worshipped Regean. In whose administration NASA, a federal agency laid off all its White engineers and programmers. And hired Chinese and Indian immigrants.

    Anyone who reads NR now or even in the past 40 years must despise NR as much as anti White communist The Nation and Mother Jones.

    No wonder White Americans are being genocide. We are led by Jew worshipping conservatives.

    As a direct descendant if Uber Anglo Saxon Protestant anti catholic John and Priscilla Mullins I’ve always had a great deal of contempt for the White trash who believe themselves superior to other Europeans because they believe themselves Anglo Saxon.

    If they truly are Anglo Saxons they’re the descendants of the deported convicts and indentured servants. Or Irish and Scott revolutionaries or Cromwell’s slave’s sent to the Americas mixed with the Anglo Saxon convicts.

    Who surrendered America to Jews and blacks less than a hundred years after the communist E European Jews arrived on Ellis Island.

    Remember, the successful don’t leave a successful life for a dangerous sea voyage to a dangerous wilderness full of natives who resist the invaders.

    America would have been better off if there had been no mass Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe starting around 1880s to 1920s which poured in millions and now whose descendants are wreaking havoc on the White Christian population by importing countless peoples of color, subverting morals of a largely God fearing society through perversion and taking control of the nation and all its institutions by hook or crook to achieve nefarious goals which are well known yet ignored by the so called conservatives to their own peril and that’s by no means a winning formula.

It was a real eye opener after being a subscriber for so many years and reading all the wiseacre and tough guy commentary, only to find a total dump of a labyrinthine office filled with limp-wristed preppies—like I’d just walked into a gay frat house by mistake and was equally unwelcome.

    The signers are right that Americans built their wealth and power rather than stealing it from others.

    Wrong. Every large country has come into existence by stealing from some others.

    The greatest wound we ever inflicted on ourselves was the War Between the States, a consequence of the presence of blacks in this country.

    A consequence ? And who forced and brought the blacks into that country ?

    However, again, progressive historians are closer to the mark when they argue that the very existence of the United States is an act of conquest.

    Yes.

    Our ancestors were conquerors, pioneers, and explorers.

    And slavophiles. Nobody forced them to bring all those blacks into their land. And the moment they freed them, they should have thought about how to best integrate them, otherwise it was just breeding for future problems. Or dispatch the blacks again into their original land…

    Our national and racial identity was birthed in blood when white settlers defied American Indians’ attempt to drive us off.

    This is ridiculous. Why not state simply that white settlers (and non-white) killed the indians and robbed their lands ?

    We should honor our heritage as a conquering, victorious people, rather than apologizing for it or denying it.

    Neither option is a sane one.
    First, yes, we should accept our past wrondoings, at face value, without distorting or “embellishment”. And learn about how not to repeat those wrongdoings.
    Second, instead of apologizing, or eternally cry for the spilled milk, we should ask ourselves: “How can we improve and work with the present situation?”

    The leftward anti-white drift of this magazine was inevitable. This was a magazine that was never pro-freedom. Its purpose from the beginning was to support the continuation of the military-industrial complex by overly magnifying the threat of the Soviet Union. It excommunicated anyone on the right like Murray Rothbard, John T. Flynn or Frank Chodorov who didn’t go along with this. When the Soviet Union collapsed, a new threat had to be found to replace it. The Islamic threat replaced the Soviet threat and anyone who didn’t go along with that like Pat Buchanan or Joseph Sobran was excommunicated by National Review. When most Americans realized Muslims were not a major threat a new villain had to be found and it appears that Putin is being cast in the role.

    The welfare part and the warfare part of the welfare-warfare state go together. The pro-welfare Democrats dragged the U.S. into most major wars of the twentieth century: World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War. With National Review style conservatism completing its take over the Republican party in the late eighties it was bound to lead to the big government conservatism of Bush II with wars abroad and more welfare spending at home. Non-whites are most in need of welfare spending and whites end up paying for it so expanding welfare ends up being anti-white. Big government is now seen as the solution to all problems, both foreign and domestic.

    National Review misses the point, because anglo conservatives are part of liberalism.

    https://katehon.com/en/article/aleksandr-dugins-critique-liberalism

    What Dugin is after is an alternative to what he calls the three major modern political theories, which are fascism, communism, and liberalism. Liberalism defeated the other two in WWII and the Cold War, but Dugin thinks liberalism has undermined itself in the postmodern period.
    In short, liberals engage in a performative self-contradiction, because they mean to spread liberal values around the world via the neoliberal globalization of economies. Liberals can no longer turn without irony to Enlightenment justifications for thinking that those values are universal in amounting to “human rights.”
    Modern European and American philosophy has passed into a decrepit stage of “postmodern” relativism, which obliges liberals to treat those so-called human rights as only locally and temporarily valid.
    According to Dugin, liberalism is only a Western phenomenon, the ideological superstructure of Western civilization; thus this political philosophy stands opposed to foreign cultures and civilizations

    Let’s distill it down shall we? People need some sort of framework for understanding.

    Kingship + Temple was the ordering hierarchy up until the big bang. That BB was after Isabella and Ferdinand kicked out their Jews in 1492.

    In short order, Converso Jews (Columbus) went to the new world, and others went to Portugal and Holland. 1497 or so, was Vasco De-Gama discovering the southern route, yet another big shock, as the old Haibaru caravan routes were bypassed. This meant that gold/silver exchange rate was no longer arbitraged at the Bosporus crossing, and instead went to Amsterdam.

    The secret usury method passed to the Portuguese and stayed in Jewish hands. More of the money was used to indebt the first corporate towns (in the lowlands of Holland), and then Parliamentary government was invented. This way the indebted town could vote and rubber stamp for their own dispossession.

    The first corporations, the first parliaments and then stock market advances and manipulations were part of the Big Bang. The printing of Athias Bibles in Amsterdam, to make Jews special God’s creatures, were printed in English, to then return Jews to England. This Bible printing came along with plenty of English language propaganda material, also produced on the first printing presses, and printed at great expense. New debts were attached to Dutch populations to fund war, and finally the creation of the first debt spreading bank in England the BOE. The City of London then grew out of this construct.

    Liberalism is tightly bound with Atlantacism, and if you don’t study the Jew, you would never know how it came into being.

    The big bang construct was finance capital running a country from behind the scenes. Private banks debt spread the population, issuing their new type of money (hypothecation credit on a double entry ledger). Hidden stock owners in the bank, and owners of stock capital companies took over from King and Temple. Companies instead of having a limited charter, became perpetual, and had rights that soon superseded that of a human. Stocks and debt instruments were on-sold into markets, effectively converting humans into commodities at a price.

    Parliamentary government is also a merchant activity, where votes are bought and paid for. Everything in life is reduced to a money price. Humans are no longer a piece of the logos, they are instead labor price, or are to have a debt instrument stuck to them.

    Liberalism began after Jewish expulsion, and the Atlantacist construct funded the spread of liberalism. Revolutions require funding. The vector for this revolution pointed WESTWARD, not eastward toward Russia, yet.

    This funding for liberal revolution mostly came out of Amsterdam’s stock market. Recycled gains funded the reformation, which was a looting operation intended to break the Catholic Church and its injunctions against usury.

    The Kings were soon usurped from the throne, or turned into figureheads, because attaching debts to entire populations is a tactic to prop up Creditor dynamics. The King cannot be allowed to get in the way. The Creditor is always to be above debtors, and creditors are always to be paid, even if their takings were at usury or sordid gain. A King could always tell their creditor Jews to F-off, so some sort of King or Power Vertical that worked for debtors was to be avoided, as this king or power vertical could kill the tribesters to then cancel debts. (Remember our friends had giant piles of gold won at usury on the overland caravan routes.)

    If you ask any American or British Anglo Saxon (Protestant) conservative about the sanctity of debts, they would knee jerk about how they must always be paid. They will also virtue signal about immigration of cheap labor, because that props up their “capital” position in markets. Free markets are free for movement of labor, as humans are now fungible debtors.

    In other words Judeo Christian “values” are Jewish values, and liberalism was a looting operation, to then install a new hidden ruler. If you asked a Judeo Christian about how Jesus began his mission on the Jubilee year, they would like at you with blank fish eyes, because it is not taught.

    Virtue signaling about free markets, is a sure sign that Atlantacist Conservatism is liberal, as free markets are part of the liberal reformation.

    There is nothing to conserve, the entire liberal construct of reformation and then enlightenment, was a function of breaking the King + Temple hierarchy that ruled mankind since the beginning of recorded time; this in order to usurp the throne and install the merchant as ruler.

    Our merchant (((friends))) saw an opportunity, and created a paradigm that suited their evolutionary character. And not just any merchant, an in-group that controls using prices, money, and usury creditor tactics.

    The American experiment failed (I’m American). For sure, the (((merchant))) and his creditor/market mechanisms had won out by the Spanish American War, and most definitely with Woodrow Wilson and his “progressive era.” The election of 1912, was funded by banksters, to then fully establish their rule.

    Let if fail. Leviathan now occupying Washington is not of the founding. The founders were actually against the Liberal Atlantacist Construct, and fought against it in the revolutionary war.

Modern conservatism is a cargo cult where current members ape the members of the past.” You can read it all at his blog or my archive, but what struck me 20 years ago was that Conservatives lost every institution to DaLeft over the last 100 plus years.

    In Scandinavia, while still run by “leftist” socialistic governments, immigration was very low and integration demanded, otherwise deportation followed. Two events changed that: Denmark entering the EEC was immediately flooded by brown people for better social welfare benefits; and, Sweden, then Norway, adopted official multiculturalism and turned themselves into shitholes. The EEC and multiculturalism, along with immigration, are tools of the shape-shifting globalists to destroy the nation state.

    NYC is a good example of why what you suggest is not possible.

Nothing. Nothing is the answer. Because, as Hood points out, you aren’t allowed to give the answer. And then NYC started back on the road to decline.

    Implement your program and black income will plummet. Black pathology will explode. And what are you going to say about it? Cause people gonna ask. “Well, you see, blacks are genetically inferior. There’s nothing to be done about it.” That just isn’t going to fly. Or, if we are magically transported to a world in which it does fly, the follow-up question will be “why do we have to treat them as if they are equal, then?” And there’s no answer to that, either.

One of the most recognized persons who was part of this group and strongly persisted in actively working to deport African Americans was none other than Abraham Lincoln. In fact, he was actively involved with this the Colonization Society right up to his death.

    Abraham Lincoln was a white supremacist by his own words even though he believed that black slaves were created equal with natural rights but not political rights in the USA. This is one of the reasons he was always trying to find an emigration scheme to have them depart this country. Liberia is one country that he suggested.

    The people running the show are not “left”. Every real leftist understands that immigration is the reserve army of capital. It is used to suppress wages and working conditions while increasing profits.

    That is the traditional labor left and they have been replaced with the anti-Western New Left or Frankfurt School Left. They basically decided in the 1930s that Western society needed to be undermined in every traditional area (family, maternal role of women, religion, objective thinking) for revolutionary society to exist. This left basically won after WW2. The argument was basically if we don’t undermine Western (White) society then some fascist movement will return.

    They also concluded that race and gender can’t be studied honestly which means objective thinking will not lead to revolution. That is what led to the widespread adoption of critical theory. It basically states that there isn’t objective thinking and all attempts from political enemies are just regressive actions. So making an objective counter-argument is actually anti-progressive and can be ignored.

    The typical leftist today is unaware of that history and does not know why he is out protesting for BLM instead of against cheap labor. New Left won and debates about labor and capital don’t take place anymore. It’s all about stopping Bad Whites that are holding back utopia.

    There is no point in explaining this to modern leftists. You can go to a Marxist forum and ask why they support limitless immigration when it undermines labor and favors big business. They have no idea and will just call you racist. It’s a completely emotional movement that has no idea as to how it evolved to its present form. A new labor-left movement would have to call itself something else.

    Woke-ism is a psychotic aberration driven by ruling classes who love to deflect blame from themselves by inciting liberals into blaming poor whites. On the other hand, conservatism a la Gregory Hood deliberately ignores racist beliefs deeply embedded in Western Civilization that justified the pillage of mayans, hindoos, slit-eyed Japs and other Asians, redskins and other first nations around the world, turning Africans in to cotton pickers in plantations in the US and Antilles, a tradition that continues in the modern age. The racism of the Nazi master race ideology used to mass murder slavs did not happen by accident. The Banderist goal of extermination of slavs that the CIA and the State Dept envoy under psycho Russian hater Victoria Nuland erected into a national Ukrainian project did not come out of nowhere, albeit assumed not to exist according to the US mass media and Washington. Hood, perhaps unknowingly, by ignoring the deep roots of Western supremacist ideology, reduces conservatism to a plaything that ruling elites use to deflect blame from themselves, just as they have done with liberalism.

    Orwell was a Trotskyite until the end. 1984 was anti-Stalinism, not anti-communism. He’d probably have been very much at home in Huxley’s Brave New World.

  94. The authors are probably referring to the 1619 Project when they talk about distortions to American history, but the iconoclasm unleashed after George Floyd’s death didn’t just happen. Decades of academic and media incitement against whites and their history paved the way.

    One of the big banner signs Jews printed for Blacks to carry while rioting the last two years since the Jews’ Media beatification of Floyd says something to the effect:

    “All Lives Matter” – Why weren’t you saying that 1619-1863?

    The short true answer to that question is that’s how long it took whitey to clean up the Trans-Atlantic Black Slave Trade mess operated by Black Africans, Arab Muslims and Jews.

    Christians of Euro descent were the only people anywhere on earth during the Trans-Atlantic Black Slave Trade working to end it, and it took whitey that long to end the hideous industry founded by the conquering Black Tribes of the interior of Black Africa who were and always have been the first enslavers of Blacks, facilitated by the Arab Muslims who traveled by land across the Sahara to buy Black Flesh from conquering tribes, then march the captives 100,000,000 strong back east over the dessert, 1) castrating the males before the journey’s onset resulting in most of the eunuchs bleeding to death in route; 2) and slaughtering in the womb or at birth the offspring they fathered by the females such that there are no descendants of those Hundred Million Black Captives in Arabia today, and financed and operated by Jews shipping the human cargo from the Door of No Return on Africa’s west coast to the Americas including Jewish Newport in the north, the Caribbean Islands and Central/South America.

    Ever since Emancipation the Jew has manipulated the Black to attack whitey because of the Jew’s hatred for the descendants of Christendom for fear of Jesus’ ban on Jew usury expressed Luke 4:16-30* might be reinvigorated since the Church about 300 A.D. lost sight of The Divine Son’s ban on this source of the Jew’s omni-powerful predation, the Jew since being free to be the predator upon humanity as St. Paul describes him at 1 Thes 2:15 and the Jew showed himself to be in his profiteering in Black Flesh 1619-1863 until the White Christian stopped the Jew at his prior method of exploiting Blacks.

    Along those lines it should be noted that in quoting Samuel Huntington, Hood is referring to a man who was deeply influenced by Oswald Spengler (of “The Decline of The West” fame). It was Spengler who predicted that what we call “Western Civilization” would collapse in a heap and give itself over to “Caesarism”–meaning totalitarianism–by the year 2000. He was wrong about the year–but probably not by much–but he appears to be spot-on otherwise. This system of ours cannot last. As I told a cousin of mine the blacks are this country’s Achillies Heel. Or, if you will (turning from Greek to Norse-Teutonic mythology), Siegfried’s back. If you know mythology then you know that as a result both were mortally wounded by Paris and Hagen respectively.

    Given what is happening at present, America (along with the civilization with gave birth to America) may very well suffer the same fate as those two mythological heroes.

    When I was growing up on Long Island and later working on Wall Street in the Big Bagel, I never once met a man or woman who took shit from Jews. Quite the contrary. So, the fact that the Republican Party wants to criminalize suggesting that Jews have ever or could ever do anything wrong should be all the proof in the world the former are bought-and-paid-for stooges. How in the world isn’t it intuitively obvious that the Jewish-owned Republican Party provably exists to neutralize patriotic leadership from arising? Hasn’t seventy-five years of betrayal been enough to prove the point?

    I’ve mentioned all this about the absurdity of fearing the Jews here without a peep, and I assume it’s because most of these keyboard warriors are content to dash off a few sentences, lest they have to actually stand up to a single Jew, and with the truth no less. How about those MAGA stadium extravaganzas? Tens of thousands of emasculated men screeching like teenage girls at an Elvis concert, and then running back to their cars in a hail of spit from fairies?

    Yet, Jews have no power that such rank cowardice doesn’t provide them. It somehow doesn’t register with younger generations who’ve never encountered Jewish hostility, who’ve been brainwashed into believing Jews are invincible foes. In fact, Jews disappear up their own asses like the Cheshire Cat with that ear-to-ear, shit-eating grin on their faces when contested face to face. As Eric Voegelin put it, we’re living in a drastic disturbance in reality and such disgusting excuses for men as the Republican members of Congress provide overwhelmingly persuasive evidence that is the case.

    Yes that is the defense which is that you are dividing the proletariat as in global proletariat. You can’t act in the best interest of your national proletariat if they are White. It really doesn’t make any sense. How are you pro-labor if you flood the country with third worlders and lower working standards?

    But most Marxists don’t even get that far. The typical Marxist is 20ish and deeply confused. A bit of advice to anyone reading which is to stay away from actual Marxists. Some of them really are violent bitter losers that would bash your face in if given the chance. It’s all an image that they are underground intellectuals that hang out in coffee shops and enjoy these discussions. That’s a leftist book/movie fantasy. There are far more Marxist thugs that want another 1917 so they can kick your ass and take your s–t.

    The feminism and cultural leveling were present in Marxism from the beginning. Stalin eventually stifled these aspects, which is why New Leftists justifiably claim he betrayed communism.

    Marx wanted to dismantle the Western concept of marriage which is tied to property but that and all kinds of other Marxist ideas were abandoned by the Communists. They knew by 1930 that most of his economic theories simply didn’t work. The communal farms completely flopped and Communism became state monopoly capitalism out of necessity. All the Asian Communist countries followed the same pattern. Create communal economic systems and then backtrack to monopoly capitalism.

    The key distinction between the old Left and the new is that the New Left explicitly abandoned violent class struggle and shifted to cultural subversion.

    Agreed. Undermining the family unit and anti-natal feminism are from the new left. East Germany actually had quite a lot of benefits for families. Problem was that they couldn’t afford everything they wanted due to the inefficiency of the system. But they still provided more economic stability for families compared to modern capitalist utopias like Haiti.

    But the abortion, promiscuity, atheism, racial egalitarianism, and overall cultural degeneracy have always been part and parcel of leftism.

    Well the Communists certainly promoted atheism and modern art but I agree overall. Gramsci, a human troll and Communist wanted to blow up Western culture and build a new society on the remains. His plans are still in effect today. The modern leftist dedication to abortion is unreal. Same for open borders. It’s a religion to them and they don’t know why.

    My ideology is basically anti-feminism. I’m sympathetic to any government that promotes family formation, including fascists and national communists. (I want no truck with Islamists, though; much like feminists, Islamists view women as mere animals guided by their clits). The post-Stalin USSR essentially restored Leninist feminism, albeit without overtly promoting the gutter licentiousness soon to be regnant in the West. As Fr. Malachi Martin argues in The Keys of This Blood, Soviet governments from Khrushchev to Gorbachev incrementally embraced the Gramscian template for revolution.
    At the end of his life, when he turned against rootless cosmopolitanism, Stalin very nearly got it right. Perhaps, if he had had the right successor, the USSR would have gone the way of the DPRK by formally abandoning Marxism-Leninism and embracing nationalist autarky.
    Re modern art: the Bolsheviks turned against it early on. I think the socialist realist movement has gotten an unfair treatment. The right dismisses it because it’s socialist, and the left because it’s realist.

    Yes early on they were against modern art in paintings but they embraced post-modern architecture and filled Eastern Europe with soul crushing buildings and WW2 memorials.

    I think we agree on a lot. Communism is an abhorrent failure and should be buried in history but I don’t see how modern capitalist society is a success if you have a negative birth rate. Romania under Communism banned birth control and ironically a lot of conservative and liberal Whites got their adopted children from them. They criticized the system but would gladly take the Romanian kids over Blacks. Obviously both systems were lacking.

    A certain German party had the right idea which was to have some state management of certain industries to ensure economic security while ensuring that the basics of a nation like the birth rate were accounted for. But a failed artist from Austria gave some of the better ideas a bad name by trying to take over Europe.

    Conservatism is definitely not the answer. This is really the crux of the problem:
    You can’t explain racial gaps without considering biological realities. If the American conservative movement won’t go that far, it will lose every debate about fairness.

    I have been asking libertarians and conservatives this question for years. When liberals says “Blacks are less likely to have X because of White racism” then what is the response? If you can’t talk about race then you grant liberals the argument every single time.

    There are ways of avoiding the argument entirely but our conservatives seem to be fine with losing. Most really are just millionaires that expect the country to go to hell and are fine with that because they imagine their offspring in private schools and gated communities.

    True.

Why should anyone care if Asians and old-money Anglos dominate medicine and business, so long as men of middling ability have the means to provide for a family? I say this as someone of rural Scotch-Irish and pre-LBJ Hispanic lineage. I take no shame in my peasant stock and lack of ties to the credentialed class.

    That made them easy for the Deep State and lobbyists to blackmail–and is one explanation why they were such obvious “controlled opposition”.

    National Review purged figures such as Peter Brimelow, John Derbyshire, and Robert Weissberg for opinions far more moderate than the ones William F. Buckley held when he started the magazine.

    Buckley purged Joe Sobran and Pat Buchanan as Buckley himself documented in his 1993 book, In Search of Anti-Semitism. Neither Sobran nor Buchanan ever fully recovered from Buckley’s scurrilous yet “polite” campaign of political and character assassination.

    I wasn’t referring to you when I wrote about looking past mythology. Your comment inspired my thoughts on the matter; I wasn’t refuting anything you wrote. Overall I agreed with what you said.

    I suspect you’re referring to the small number of Chinese who put their pets down because they were suspected of carrying the COVID virus.

    No, my surprising friend.

    Anybody with access to the internet can see what is happening in Shanghai.

    The worst, of course, is what’s being done to the people.

    But there’s something about those pet cats & dogs – total innocents – being tossed into bags & tortured without regard to their suffering…

    Humans are not meant to be commodities.

    This insight you have shared repeatedly about Jews commodisizing everything proves true with the passage of time

    Everything in life is reduced to a money price.

    Humans are no longer a piece of the logos, they are instead labor price, or are to have a debt instrument stuck to them.

    Free markets are free for movement of labor, as humans are now fungible debtors.

    right up to the recent cultural sea change of college athletes no longer having amateur status so Jew agents can get their piece.

    if you don’t study the Jew, you would never know

    Almost all goyim alive today native to the West have been precluded or persuaded from doing so, the result being basic ignorance of reality lethal for society at large.

    Thankfully, Mefobills, you have the smarts, guts, initiative and diligence to have done so to the extreme benefit of those of us who have found you here as far as the value of knowing the truth, and to the protection of society to the extent this knowledge can be widely disseminated. The extent to which your insights are recorded and available to be circulated can make the difference in the survival of Christendom which is the obvious target for Jew destruction.

    The Catholic Church, founded by Jesus to spread His Good News and protect His flock to include all of humanity from the very Jew predation which resulted in His murder for coming out of the gate opposing Jew usury in His first recorded public statement (Luke 4:16-30*) was the first target of newly turbocharged Jew (((finance capitalism))):

    This funding for liberal revolution mostly came out of Amsterdam’s stock market. Recycled gains funded the reformation, which was a looting operation intended to break the Catholic Church and its injunctions against usury.

    .

    Liberalism began after Jewish expulsion, and the Atlantacist construct funded the spread of liberalism. Revolutions require funding. The vector for this revolution pointed WESTWARD, not eastward toward Russia, yet.

    Our merchant (((friends))) saw an opportunity, and created a paradigm that suited their evolutionary character.

    …Judeo Christian “values” are Jewish values, and liberalism was a looting operation, to then install a new hidden ruler.

    Jew usury usurpation of government authority causing the great Ezra Pound to say in 1939 as the Jews were inflicting WWII

    “Democracy is now currently defined in Europe as a ‘country run by Jews’”.

    the Jews being as you say

    …an in-group that controls using prices, money, and usury creditor tactics.

    usury tactics which you describe thusly:

    More of the money was used to indebt the first corporate towns (in the lowlands of Holland), and then Parliamentary government was invented. This way the indebted town could vote and rubber stamp for their own dispossession.

    The big bang construct was finance capital running a country from behind the scenes. Private banks debt spread the population, issuing their new type of money (hypothecation credit on a double entry ledger). Hidden stock owners in the bank, and owners of stock capital companies took over from King and Temple. Companies instead of having a limited charter, became perpetual, and had rights that soon superseded that of a human.

    Parliamentary government is also a merchant activity, where votes are bought and paid for.

    The Kings were soon usurped from the throne, or turned into figureheads, because attaching debts to entire populations is a tactic to prop up Creditor dynamics. The King cannot be allowed to get in the way. The Creditor is always to be above debtors, and creditors are always to be paid, even if their takings were at usury or sordid gain.

    What you express in this comment alone is invaluably necessary for the survival of goodness in the face of diabolical onslaught, and there are volumes of unique knowledge in your comment history here.

    These specifics are so key any insights beyond what appear in your comment history are necessary to continue to edify us:

    The secret usury method passed to the Portuguese and stayed in Jewish hands.

    including specific Gospel citations which Jews printing expensive Bibles for free distribution twerked:

    The printing of Athias Bibles in Amsterdam, to make Jews special God’s creatures, were printed in English…

    @houston 1992

    Can you elaborate on why [Norm?] Podhoretz panned WFB piece on PJB? Not critical enough of PJB?

    Not PJB — Buckley went to the trouble of making “In Search of Antisemitism” an entire book.

    Podhoretz gave Buckley a truly snotty review in the following issue of Commentary, telling him to “Look in his own staff” and giving him the third degree on Sobran. They were truly furious with Joe at the time because his devout Catholicism, then, was a major conservative point. Sobran insisted on quoting Belloc and being less than gentle about various Jewish issues.

    Probably it was just a bump in the hostile takeover of Conservative, Inc. It was big in the 1970s and very non-Jewish. Buckley was too anxious for his reputation, so he shafted most of his old followers to be accepted by the neocons.

    The world is a long story of human populations displacing other populations. Your side, obvious from your post, simply (a) condemns certain universal human behavior, then (b) edits history to contain only its enemies’ participation in that behavior (a), so that (c) it can claim absolute power justified by moral superiority.

    Minerva’s owl flies at dusk. Your moral pretensions are not even plausible now that you’ve advocated castrating children, using the FBI to punish those who oppose this, and installing a senile puppet as President. Your moral pretensions are closer to infuriating.

    Henry Ford, Vanderbilt, Edison, Carnegie,etc all were on the “leftist’s” side?

    Every one of them was on (a) their own side and (b) the side of “industrializing America:. This meant that they were on the side of massive immigration, including Black immigration from the US Southeast, which is what gave us the US of today. That’s the same massive level of immigration that is changing the US yet again and, as it is today, there was considerable political opposition to immigration, which included (back then) urban riots against further immigration (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Know_Nothings) .
    So, yes, the people you named each individually and all together made the US of today possible. Industrialization in the US used a large labor force that was, initially, not very productive per individual. The English had worked out a “factory system” that originally employed English paupers who slept in company barracks, with semi-military discipline. This system was transferred to the US and adapted to Irish immigrants (1840s, Irish famine), and later to other immigrants, such as the Ashkenazi. It was shut off in the 1920s because Ashkenazi socialists/communists and Italian anarchists were using about the same tools they are using today (“demonstrations” that are threats and prevent most city activities) and used in the 60s (Weather Underground bombing campaigns).
    Had it not been for that, the Northeast US would today have had as few immigrants as the US Southeast has had.

    ‘Traditional Judeo-Christian values’???

    Indeed. There is no such thing, because Judaism and Christianity are diametrically opposed concepts. One is tribal, the other universal. The genocide isn’t in “the good book”, it’s in Judeo book.
