So why is Arizona’s Maricopa County refusing to comply with the court order and Arizona Senate subpoenas to provide the voting system logs for investigation? The clear answer is that Maricopa County is protecting the false news narrative of no electoral fraud. The utterly corrupt “defund-the-police-Democrats” are claiming that to turn over the evidence would... Read More
The black-run District of Columbia government has just agreed to pay $1.6 million to people who sued—backed by the ACLU—over being arrested for rioting in the January 20, 2017 riots protesting the election of Donald Trump. This is probably collusive, like "Consent Decrees" and Jacob Frey's $27 million settlement with the Floyd Family in Minneapolis.... Read More
We in America are neck-deep in a domestic political war to the finish. During the notable “kitchen debate” in Moscow in 1959, Nikita Khrushchev asserted that Richard Nixon's grandchildren would live under communism, while Nixon argued that Khrushchev's grandchildren would live in freedom. Both were correct, if not as either intended. Americans generally applauded the... Read More

If enough people say something often enough, it becomes “true.” Big media and people at the highest levels of government now accept that the Capitol takeover of January 6 was an “armed insurrection” by “white supremacists.” A few eccentrics wonder how you can have an “insurrection” with no plan and no weapons, but virtually everyone...

Did Dostoevsky's Demons Predict Wokeism, Antifa and the Gender-Benders?
Since the so-called insurrection of January 6, big media, big government, and big corporations have been demanding the collective scalp of the Trumpian alt-right. If we don't somehow make those 70 million Trump voters disappear, the subtext goes, American democracy is doomed. The alt-right agrees that American democracy faces an existential threat, but disagrees vociferously... Read More
"That attack, that siege" of the Capitol, FBI Director Chris Wray told Congress, "was criminal behavior, plain and simple, and it was behavior we at the FBI view as domestic terrorism." "Domestic terrorism," said Wray, echoing his boss. For what had been President-elect Joe Biden's reaction to the Capitol riot? "Don't dare call them protesters.... Read More
For the longest time the most widely read article on this website was “Germany Did Not Start World War II.” This article has been moved into second place by “The Proof Is In: The Election Was Stolen.” The third most widely read article is “Whites Were Slaves In North Africa Before Blacks Were Slaves In...

In 2016 I predicted that Trump’s presidency would fail, because Trump had no idea who to appoint to his government and, therefore, would end up staffed with the establishment that he intended to overthrow. That is exactly what occurred. In his entire four years Trump only made one good appointment—General Flynn—and Trump did not have... Read More

Every now and then something happens, something you catch on TV or read in a magazine, or hear in a conversation which signals just how disjunctive—how unbridgeable—the division is today between the different groups of people we call “Americans.” That division is growing greater, more irreparable and sharper by the day…and there is not much...

In the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, February 9th-13th, video footage was shown of events in the Capitol building during the January 6th protests. I had things to say about that video footage in my February 12th podcast. They were not very kind things. I spoke of the congressfolk "scampering off to safety under... Read More
Will the last American kindly turn off the Shining City on a Hill?
With the passing of Rush Limbaugh, this feels like the right moment to reflect on the legacy of talk-radio conservatism—an "alternative right" which preceded us—and to consider how we might succeed where they failed. In their bones, millions of right-leaning Americans know that the time of ‘standing-up for America as founded’ has passed. Our job... Read More
"I don't know if he'll run in 2024 or not. But if he does, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination." So says Mitt Romney, the sole Republican senator to have voted twice to convict President Donald J. Trump of impeachable acts. But is it possible Trump could win the nomination in 2024? What...

The invasion of the Capitol on 6 January now stands alongside 9/11 as an act of war against American democracy. Unsurprisingly, news coverage of the incursion has come to resemble war propaganda. All facts, true or false, are pointed in the same direction with the aim of demonising the enemy and anybody who minimises its... Read More
"Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun." So said Citizen Trump Saturday on his acquittal by the Senate of the impeachment article of "incitement of insurrection" in the Jan 6 invasion of the Capitol. "I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness... Read More
Democrats Reject America and All Standards of Truth
We can observe the disintegration of the United States in the Democrats’ 1930s-style Stalinist Show Trial of Donald Trump. Republicans provided the Senate with video proof that Democrats responded to their 2016 defeat with insurrectionist language whereas Trump did not respond to the stolen 2020 election with insurrectionist language. But in the Democrats’ Show Trial... Read More
The inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is a symbolic referendum on the identity of America, with neoliberal elites arrogantly viewing Biden’s election as a mandate for a new America that is less White and Christian and has a woke internationalist value system. This vision is in stark contrast with the vision that originally... Read More
AXIOS article by Mike Allen, Jim VandeHei: Republicans, long reliant on big business and the rich, see a post-Trump future centered on working class white, Hispanic and Black voters, top GOP officials tell Axios. Why it matters: This is a substantial shift, born of necessity and the post-Trump reality. It would push Republicans further away... Read More
It has been a dreadful three months for the Grand Old Party. On Nov. 3, President Donald Trump seemed to have lost the White House by narrowly losing three crucial blue states he had won in 2016 -- Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania -- and Georgia and Arizona as well. Trump immediately mounted an acrimonious two-month... Read More

Most Western media call Russian dissident Alexei Navalny a hero. Mr. Navalny is now in a Russian prison, and our most prestigious newspapers are cheering his anti-Putin crusade. These are official editorial statements from leading publications. “The Times view on Alexei Navalny’s bravery: Russian Hero,” The Times, December 23, 2020 “The Extraordinary Courage of Aleksei...

How Our Lying Press Would Have Spun Jan 6 Protest If Trump Were A Democrat
Video and narration by Noah Arnold. See it, and more, on VDARE-TV. VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow was not at the January 6 Patriot protests at the U.S. Capitol, just as he was not at the 2017 Charlottesville Unite The Right Rally (although PayPal cut VDARE.com off anyway). But afterwards, on January 15, he tweeted: He... Read More
To Parliament, in the London of George III, the Boston Massacre of 1770 and the Tea Party of 1773 were not seen in the same light as they were by the Sons of Liberty in the Massachusetts colony. To Parliament, this was mob violence, and the shooting and killing at Lexington and Concord were acts... Read More
Global Research is an internationally read website that seeks truth and, thus, permits writers to hold the United States government accountable. The website’s assessment of President Trump has not been very accurate as Global Research tends to regard successive US presidents as tools of the military/security complex, Israel, and other powerful interest groups that punish...

The 2020 election was the freest and fairest in human history. That’s an article of faith you must repeat to avoid the dreaded label of “domestic terrorist.” Doubts about the election threaten our democracy and cannot be allowed. Most readers have been barraged with this message since November. But now a new message is emitting... Read More

If you enjoyed the Global War on Terror, you’re going to love the new War on Domestic Terror! It’s just like the original Global War on Terror, except that this time the “Terrorists” are all “Domestic Violent Extremists” (“DVEs”), “Homegrown Violent Extremists” (“HVEs”), “Violent Conspiracy-Theorist Extremists” (“VCTEs”), “Violent Reality Denialist Extremists” (VRDEs”), “Insurrectionary Micro-Aggressionist Extremists”...

The official narrative that there was no election theft is likely the largest lie ever perpetrated on the world. The lie is so vast and so fragile that everyone who disagrees with the official narrative is suppressed, deplatformed, kicked off social media, ostracized, and fired from their job in order to protect the lie from...

The Senate trial for now twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is set to begin this week, with little doubt over the outcome. A procedural vote in the Senate on the constitutionality of “removing from office” someone who is not in office revealed that nowhere near enough Republicans were willing to join their Democrat counterparts in...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] A leading candidate for the title Truer Words Were Never Said is surely T.S. Eliot's observation that, If you want a set, that quote pairs off nicely with science fiction writer and occasional LSD user Philip K. Dick's observation in a speech he gave... Read More
I’m not even sure one can still speak freely about theoretical matters. Nevertheless, against the background din of “insurrection” charges against MAGA America, I’ve tried to distill the hardcore libertarian take regarding the storming of the Capitol Building, on January 6, in a brief YouTube clip. It is very plainly this: Principled libertarians will distinguish... Read More
It is unavoidable. The presstitutes have white conservative American Trump supporters set up as “systemic racists,” “MEGA terrorists,” “enemies of democracy,” and “white supremacist oppressors.” As Biden’s staffing reveals, the regime is staffed with people hostile to white gentiles. The regime’s “anti-domestic terrorism bill” voids the First Amendment by criminalizing dissent from controlled explanations. I... Read More

One of the great paradoxes of American democracy is that much of what makes it worth having also renders it vulnerable to mortal threats. This is particularly true when the threats are internal, and the domestic enemies adept at using their constitutionally guaranteed rights and privileges to gnaw away at the society that nurtured and...

The Department of Homeland Security issued on Wednesday a nationwide terror alert lasting until April 30. The alert warns of potential terrorist attacks from Americans who are “ideologically motivated” and have “objections to the exercise of government authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives.” The language used...

Gregory Hood explains why many Trump voters fear that they are being criminalized for opposing Biden’s agendas. Hood writes that illegitimate president Joe Biden has called for “constant, unrelenting immigration.” Biden said a non-white majority will be “a source of our strength.” Biden also said, “English jurisprudential culture, a white man’s culture” has “got to...

The Military Lockdown of Washington DC
The rhetoric of these people was revolutionary: there was talk of “crossing the Rubicon.” A crowd chanted “Hang Mike Pence.” Somebody erected makeshift gallows. Some grandiosely claimed, “The storm is coming,” while Alex Jones promised that “1776 will commence again.” In a similar vein Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert controversially tweeted “Today is 1776” while events...

The Regime on the Potomac has begun its campaign of repression. Media hysterics about “insurrectionists” and a vague Department of Homeland security bulletin about terrorism created an artificial crisis. Figures in the new Administration are eager to use state power against “racists,” even while they tolerate real crime. Add to this the concepts of “restorative... Read More
As soon as the Senate received the lone article of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of "incitement of insurrection" in the Jan. 6 mob assault on the Capitol, Rand Paul rose to object. The Senate, he said, has no right to try a private citizen, which Trump now is. Thus, what we are about to... Read More

The Trump experiment is over, and the strange journey that the last five years have been is now at an end. There are already lots of assessments being made about the meaning of Trump’s presidency, but most of them are from either liberal or conservative viewpoints. It also needs to be evaluated from the viewpoint... Read More

At 78, after a prolonged illness and without recovering consciousness, Joe Biden succumbed to the Presidency. The last hopes of the last QAnon believers vanished like smoke in the night, with Biden assuming the mighty US throne. This is truly a dark day for America and for the world, as the US example will be... Read More
Presstitute propaganda of a white supremacist insurrection on inauguration day caused 26,000 national guardsmen to be sent by states to D.C. to put down the Trump sedition. Of course, there was no insurrection. It was all just another media hoax, and the National Guardsmen experienced no security incidents. But now that the propaganda show is... Read More
Joe Biden says he wants unity. What he does spreads division. Mr. Biden is hardly a radical leftist by today’s standards, but that is because the ground has shifted dramatically. His current positions on immigration, race, and crime are extreme compared to his previous moderation. I believe he won the election because he campaigned as... Read More
Sexual deviants, pedophiles, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, illegal aliens, feminist-indoctrinated women who think they are superior, defense contractors, organized interest groups that pay well and their Washington lobbies are Biden’s base. Numerically Biden’s base is very small. It is comprised of the least desirable elements in the country. Here is Biden Giving the Bird to... Read More

The Trump presidency is over. But whether you loved him, despised him, admired him, or merely tolerated him, there is one thing he did for America that makes him the most important figure in modern American history: He exposed the farce that America is a healthy, functioning democracy. Trump has shown Americans, without meaning to,... Read More

It did not take long for the Lie Machine, aka American media, to create the false news and fake narrative of the “storming of the US Capitol” on January 6 by a “white supremacist insurrection.” Here is an example from Bloomberg Weekend Reading on January 23, 2021: “The scenes from the first day of Joe...

Mocking the Newly Installed Murderous Regime Let me start with an irreverent tribute to our compassionate political leaders—and I use the term “compassionate” with the greatest irony—by featuring the Freudian slip of humanoid gargoyle Senator Chuck Schumer, speaking about the second impeachment of Donald Trump:
I was always worried when I had to enter the Green Zone in Baghdad at a time when its entrances were under frequent attack by suicide bombers driving vehicles filled with explosives. Being blown up by al-Qaeda in Iraq was not the only danger. The soldiers guarding the outer checkpoints of the zone were understandably... Read More
"We have met the enemy and he is us," said Walt Kelly's cartoon character Pogo, half a century ago, about what we Americans were doing to our environment. Rereading President Joe Biden's inaugural address, Pogo's remark comes to mind. Biden began on a lofty, hopeful and familiar note: "This is a great nation. We are... Read More
From mainstream left to mainstream right, the media deluge of Donald Trump postmortems share the assumption that 45 represented a departure, deviation or innovation from the comportment and policies of previous American heads of state. True, he was the first man elected president without political or military experience. And as I have previously observed, the... Read More

Trump, Self-Styled “King of Israel,” Has Failed to Save America from Democrats and Pedophiles…Will His Cult Followers Keep Making Excuses? In the year 1666 the whole Jewish world went crazy. A manic-depressive madman named Sabbatai Zevi, aided by his loquacious PR flack, Nathan of Gaza, had declared himself the Messiah. History hadn’t been kind to... Read More
