At this writing, in mid-May, 2021, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted by a jury of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd during Floyd’s arrest. Chauvin hasn’t been sentenced yet. The first charge carries a maximum of forty years in prison. Chauvin was one of... Read More
The lesson of Officer Derek Chauvin’s show trial, a trial as crooked as any experienced by black Americans in the demonized South, is that police training needs to be changed. Chauvin is the victim of many years of media emphasis on police brutality against black Americans. According to reports, US police, or many of them... Read More
Within hours of Saturday's shooting in Times Square where three bystanders, including a 4-year-old girl, were wounded, the two leading candidates to replace Mayor Bill de Blasio were on-site. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a retired captain of the NYPD, and Andrew Yang, who declared: "My fellow New Yorkers ... Nothing works in our city... Read More
As people of good will celebrate or merely breathe a sigh of relief in response to the conviction of Minneapolis former police officer Derek Chauvin for the videotaped murder of George Floyd, it is worth noting that this victory likely would never have occurred had it not been for a spectacular act of property destruction....

"Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country." So declared Sen. Tim Scott, a Black Republican, in his televised rebuttal to Joe Biden's address to Congress. Asked the next day what he thought of Scott's statement, Biden said he agrees. "No, I don't think the American people are racist." Vice President Kamala Harris also... Read More

Democrats prepare to eliminate opposition to woke culture
So what was preordained has finally taken place. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has now been convicted of the murder of George Floyd. While many, possibly even most, Americans would agree that Chauvin exceeded what was necessary in his use of force, the prosecution never proved that he intended to either kill or severely...

The American Ruling Class is deliberately attacking the country’s core demographic group at just the same time that it is picking fights with major powers like Russia, China, and even Turkey. The Biden Administration is demonizing whites as the main domestic threat and is developing a complicated racial caste system that punishes whites for their... Read More
So, they did this “anti-black racism is white supremacy” thing. Then they started with an “anti-Asian attacks are white supremacy” thing. But the blacks are doing the Asian attacks. And the Asians are protesting against the blacks. Within the doctrine of the current system, this is white supremacists marching against white supremacists – while no... Read More
This article is not about global warming, nuclear war, Covid or some other plague orchestrated or real. It is about the confidence of peoples of the world. Of all the peoples the white ethnicities of the Western World have the poorest outlook. The reason is the white peoples have lost confidence from decades of indoctrination... Read More
Many Americans saw former policeman Derek Chauvin’s conviction on all counts last week as affirming the principle that no one is above the law. Many others were concerned that the jury was scared that anything less than a full conviction would result in riots, and even violence against themselves and their families. Was the jury’s...

20 high ranking French military officials have released an explosive protest letter against the government demanding action against the rising crime of immigrant gangs, terrorism, American-style anti-white political activism, and no-go zones. They contrasted the state's total lack of interest in facing these challenges with the Macron regime's brutal repression of the white populist Yellow... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] It’s St. George's Day, April 23. This has actually been St. George's week; not the chap who slew the dragon, but St. George Floyd of Minneapolis, who was slain himself last year by something much more fearsome than any dragon—by systemic racism! So the... Read More
How can America unite again to do great things if we are led by people who believe America suffers from a great sickness of the soul, an original sin that dates back to her birth as a nation?

Officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts for the “murder” of the beatified George Floyd. The jury, consisting of only two white men among twelve, found him guilty within a matter of hours. It was a quick decision that sent a clear message to America: black lives matter more than yours. Despite being... Read More
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government.

The jury has found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts. It took fewer than 24 hours to reach a unanimous decision. I have argued all along that an acquittal was impossible, no matter what the evidence showed. No jury, anywhere in the United States, could have found Mr. Chauvin innocent after nearly a year...

The mystery of who the black man in the confrontation with Sgt. Jonathan Pentland in a quiet Columbia, South Carolina neighborhood is has finally been solved. The mass media has kept the supposed victim's identity a secret from the public out of fear that it would injure the anti-white narrative they have spun, but online... Read More
Outside the Hennepin County Courthouse on Tuesday morning, a crowd chanted, “If George don’t get it, SHUT IT DOWN! If George don’t get it, SHUT IT DOWN!” while the jurors deliberated inside. Although 14 jurors heard the case, Judge Peter Cahill excused the two alternates after closing arguments on Monday, and Jurors #96 and #118... Read More
I was hopeful that Russian-based news sources such as RT and Sputnik would do a better job than the American presstitutes. To an extent, RT and Sputnik do a better job than the New York Times and CNN. RT and Sputnik report news that otherwise doesn’t see the light of day. But RT and Sputnik... Read More

The killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright by a Minnesota police officer during a traffic stop is the latest in a long line of high-profile shootings to have sparked widespread protests. As often occurs after these terrible incidents, politicians and editorial boards are floating ways to turn Robocop into Officer Friendly. The trouble with mainstream proposals... Read More
On Sunday, a white woman police officer shot a young black man, Daunte Wright, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. The police chief said it was an “accidental discharge” and the cop meant to use her taser. City Manager Curt Boganey, who is black, said he would not fire the officer immediately and that she should get... Read More
This is a dead serious warning to our overwhelmingly White audience. All readers have seen the absurd claims about “domestic terrorists” — meaning White men — surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol “insurrection.” Since then, all manner of outlandish claims have been made about the imminent threat tens of millions of White Americans represent to our...

Court began with discussions outside the presence of the jury. Derek Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, objecting to the prosecution’s plan to call another use-of-force expert. He said it would only be repetition of what other witnesses have said. Earlier, Judge Peter Cahill cautioned prosecutors about “cumulative” witnesses, and said he would not let them bring...

Evidence is coming out in the courtroom, although not in the US media, that Officer Chauvin’s arrest was based entirely on “camera perspective bias,” as I previously reported. As the police videos demonstrate, Chauvin’s knee was on Floyd’s shoulder blade and not on his neck. My opinion is that evidence will play no role in... Read More

It’s very difficult to say “this is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen” about anything these days, because everything is so gosh-darn crazy. But we must admit that the “anti-Asian hate crimes are white supremacy” narrative is so crazy that if it was happening in say, 2015, it would be the craziest thing you’d ever... Read More

While America faces a historic crime wave, the Department of Justice is maintaining a furious campaign of persecution against January 6 protesters. It’s impossible to see this as other than politically-driven, given its total indifference to political violence from the Left. National law enforcement now operates like a political police, more interested in protecting Regime... Read More
he United States now has attributes of the 20th century totalitarian regimes that it opposed. The New York governor is implementing the hated Soviet internal passport that prevents freedom of movement, and the illegitimate Biden regime is working with private firms to create a nationwide internal passport.

In one of the weirdest clips I’ve seen yet, a Chinaman who serves as a trustee in a Cincinnati suburb gave a whiny Black Lives Matter style victim speech before a board meeting. The man’s name is Lee Wong. He is 69 years old. He started talking about how people come up to him and... 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
Friday, as the jury was being empaneled for the trial of fired police officer Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis City Council voted 13-0 to approve a record $27 million civil settlement with the family of George Floyd over his death in police custody.

The Biden Administration is now preparing to go after the people that it objects to and will create new laws as necessary to do so. The claim is often made that President George W.

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

The Democrats approached the impeachment with the same cockiness that they approach everything.

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
"Never allow a good crisis (to) go to waste. It's an opportunity to do the things you once thought were impossible." Thus did chief of staff Rahm Emanuel advise Barack Obama on the financial crisis he inherited in 2009. Following the Capitol riot by a mob of pro-Donald Trump protesters, the left took Rahm's counsel,... 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.

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 New York Time's motto, dating back to 1896, is "All The News That's Fit To Print."

President Joe Biden has already made it clear that legislation that will be used to combat what he refers to as “domestic terrorism” will be a top priority. That means that his inaugural speech pledge to be the president for “all Americans” appears to apply except for those who don’t agree with him. Former Barack... 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
Hardcore libertarians differentiate between pro-Trump patriots and Black Lives Matter detritus. BLM rioters trashed, looted and leveled their countrymen’s private property, their businesses. Democratic stormtroopers harassed their fellow Americans—meek men and women in eateries, in shopping malls, in the inner sanctum of their homes—often forcing innocents to kneel or recite repulsive, self-incriminating racial catechisms. These... Read More

Many Americans woke up this week to the crystal-clear realization that we have entered a fifth generation (5G) civil war for control of this county – a culture war, yes, but much more than that.
