Is China Being Framed?
I was researching Chinese censorship when–irony of ironies–I fell afoul of American censorship, providing an opportunity to update you on the state of the art under both regimes, starting at home, with the recent attempt to frame the President for crimes he did not commit. Like many attempts to frame people, events and nations–Vietnam, Iraq,... Read More
See also: The House’s White Nationalist Hearing Farcical—But Disturbing This week on Capitol Hill the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee had a hearing on the threat of “white nationalism.” I didn't read very far into the transcripts of this event before I realized the complete bogosity of it. It was a pseudo-event, like one of those... Read More

For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange’s extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations. For... Read More
jews-protected
By almost every metric, Jews are the most protected ethnic group on earth. At the frontline of this protection, Jewish institutional security is heavily subsidised by taxpayers throughout the West. In Germany, the government provides an annual stipend of $15 million to the Central Council of Jews. In the UK, the government spends around $20... Read More
Yesterday (April 10, 2019) a reader alerted me to the fact that I am being smeared on Wikipedia as a “vocal supporter of the current Russian government and its policies.” The reader also reports that an article in the Daily Beast calls me a “Putin worshiper.” The reader says that he tried to edit the...

The House Judiciary Committee’s Tuesday hearing on white nationalism was a disturbing clown show. Democrats and the professional “hate” watchers insisted white nationalism is the greatest threat to America. Most Republicans tried to switch the topic to that other great domestic danger: left-wing anti-Semitism. Big Tech’s representatives bent over backwards to say they are doing... Read More
News From Information Clearing House
I just heard from Tom Feeley: It is curious that the host of Information Clearing House has not responded to Tom Feeley. Legally it would seem that the host of the website could tell the owner of the website that the host company had decided to cease hosting the website. But the host should not... Read More

Jared Taylor, Martin Sellner Travel Bans Show The “Free World” Is Finished
“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime,” commented British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey on the eve of his country’s entry in World War I. Something similar came to mind when I heard that American Renaissance Editor Jared Taylor has been banned from Europe... Read More
Social Justice Warriors are obsessed with words. They instinctively understand that words aren’t just a means to communicate: they are thinking-tools—a way of expressing your individual and group identity. Political Correctness, in policing language, attempts to police people. It reduces their individuality, forces them to outwardly conform to the Multicultural Cult through speech, breaks their...

Over the last decade, Amazon has gained a near-total monopoly over Internet book sales, and late last month, we saw the dangerous consequences of such intellectual control as the company suddenly banned dozens of books, many of them of excellent scholarly quality. Apparently, activist organizations such as the ADL and the SPLC had succeeded in... Read More
sabroskyyoutube
Who’s afraid of Alan Sabrosky? Whoever they are, they have the ability to monitor and censor YouTube live-streams in real time. And they apparently don’t want you to know what Sabrosky thinks about the Holocaust. That’s the obvious takeaway from the highly unusual example of YouTube censorship that disrupted the March 22 live broadcast of... Read More
Ea Kly, 2019
Eileen Neff was my professor at the Philadelphia College of Art, and we became friends and even did coke together, though just once. In January, Eileen emailed to ask if I would consider writing a piece about Walt Whitman for the American Poetry Review, where she is a board member. Its late editor, Stephen Berg,... Read More

But They Have Enemies Trump Could Work With, If He Would Focus
See, earlier: Google vs. Trump: “The Good Censor” On Collision Course With The Patriot President Needless to say, Journofa/ politicians are demanding more tech censorship following last week’s tragic shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand. The alleged killer, Brenton Tarrant, appears to have been a frequent 8chan user, he livestreamed his attack on Facebook, and his... Read More

Jews Say Banning Black Books is SAFER Than Dialogue with Blacks
The banning of four Nation of Islam Black history books by Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, provides a perfect opportunity to examine the wickedly racist ways Jewish power is wielded in America. Amazon provided no warning, no reason, no hearing, and no opportunity to respond—it was a blatant mockery of Amazon founder Jeffrey... Read More

Banning Black Historiography During Black History Month
As most are surely aware, the last year or two has seen a growing crackdown on free speech and free thought across the Internet, with our constitutionally-protected First Amendment rights being circumvented through the agency of monopolistic private sector corporations such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Although as yet our government has not gained the... Read More
The Internet is seen as a savior that will take over the function of honest reporting and free speech now that the print and TV media and NPR serve as the Ministry of Propaganda. This is true only if people migrate from Google, Facebook, Twitter, and so forth, to the alternatives that do not block... Read More
In de-platforming news this week, Amazon is now no longer selling books that present a dissident perspective. The de-platforming here is not total, though you have to think that "not" should probably be "not yet." As of this morning, March 1st, Paul Kersey's books are still available: the one titled Stuff Black People Don't Like,... Read More
Dear Readers: I have had to take measures to strengthen the website from outside interference. The entirety of the interview archive disappeared off the website. Readers complained that they had ceased receiving the newsletter notices of new postings to the website. Soren Korsgaard helped to restore the interview archive, and has moved the website’s email...

At the end of November, I noted the remarkable increase in the readership of our webzine over the last couple of years, especially when compared with that of its competitors, both in the alternative and the more establishment opinion media. Three months later, I'm now pleased to say that these trends seem to have continued... Read More

The internet giant’s new wave of censorship
White Identity by Jared Taylor has just been delisted by Amazon. Like most cases of this kind, the digital book burning was in response to a hit piece. An article from Quartz called “There’s a disturbing amount of neo-Nazi and white supremacist material on Amazon” frothed about White Identity and other titles. The piece was... Read More
Alain Finkielkraut being confronted by yellow-vest protesters.
The French Jewish intellectual Alain Finkielkraut was recently profusely insulted by yellow-vests on the margins of a demonstration. This attack has been widely-portrayed as anti-Semitic, even though the yellow-vests in question explicitly attacked Finkielkraut as a Zionist. As Damien Viguier, the anti-Zionist intellectual Alain Soral’s lawyer, observed: It is true that “Zionist” is often used... Read More
The death of the Weekly Standard saw three of its former writers scooped up into the Main Stream Media: (Haley Byrd, Holmes Lybrand, Mike Warren) [CNN Hires Three #NeverTrump Weekly Standard Castaways, by Tom Pappert, Big League Politics, January 29, 2019]. After years of subsidies, Conservatism Inc. will probably claim this infiltration as a victory... Read More

On January 25 2018 YouTube unleashed the latest salvo in the war on conspiracy theories, saying “we’ll begin reducing recommendations of borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways—such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic...

The FBI abduction of Marzieh Hashemi is another milestone in the US turn to fascism. Marzieh Hashemi is a well-recognized and highly respected journalist and TV anchorwoman for Press TV, which is affiliated with the Islamic Republic of Iran. She was abducted on January 15th as she was boarding a flight to Denver from St.... Read More
Harvard scientists insisted last year we had been visited by guests from a galaxy far, far away. Well, almost. The suspected spacecraft Oumuamua first drew close to the earth, but then it accelerated, sped by our planet and disappeared somewhere into Deep Space. What went wrong?

The Poignant Psychohistory Of A Social Justice Warrior
A specter is haunting British and American scientists who have the courage to explore non-PC topics—a specter named Ben van der Merwe. He’s a case study in what goes into making a Cultural Marxist Social Justice Warrior. Over the last year, this toothy graduate student’s journalism has “exposed” the London Conference on Intelligence [Exposed: London’s... Read More

The Banning Campaign Against Gilad Atzmon
Jazz saxophonist and writer Gilad Atzmon was recently banned from playing at an assembly hall in Islington, a borough of London, by order of the Islington Town Council. This came about as a result of an e-mail from one person — Martin Rankoff — saying nothing more than that if Atzmon was going to be... Read More

A Confidential Note to Various "Alt-Right" People and Others Dated: August 21, 2017 I've been very dismayed by the recent "political purge" being conducted by some of the largest Internet companies, in which numerous controversial websites of the "Alt Right" have suddenly been "disappeared," and in which all sorts of basic Internet services such as...

Please keep in mind that nowhere in the Western world does it pay to tell the truth. Whistleblowers, who are protected by federal law, are nevertheless framed and imprisoned for telling the truth while nothing is done about the government officials who commit the revealed crimes. With few exceptions such as Tucker Carlson, no journalist... Read More

Once a year I like to pretend like my blog is some kind of "respectable" mainstream outlet and I engage in the (admittedly totally silly!) exercise of nominating some "man" (sorry, "person" is unbearably politically correct and once you go down that route you end up calling mentally deranged freaks "ze/zir/zee/etc" and the like). Hey,... Read More

Ever wonder what it would be like for a website or platform to suddenly just pull the plug on an enormous swath of its users? Not just one or two thought criminals (such as, to pick at random, American Renaissance), or even a few dozen or hundred users, but a massive purge? Well, you are... Read More
Free speech and the ability to speak truth are being shut down. It is happening with the complicity of the print and TV media, the liberal/progressive/left, the US Department of Justice (sic), the law schools and bar associations, Congress, and the federal judiciary. The attack on Julian Assange is the arrow aimed at the heart... Read More

For centuries Western monarchs derived legitimacy from a God Who lent authority to the laws they promulgated. The simultaneous demise of God and the monarchic principle in 1918 left the law legitimized by force alone and, a century later, our distrust[1] suggests that it has failed to converge with the ethical. Things were little better... Read More
Radical feminists are now being banned by Twitter not because they hate men, which is perfectly OK as far as Twitter is concerned, but because they object to “transwomen.” What is a “transwoman?” As far as I can understand, a “transwoman” is a male with a penis who declares himself to be a women and...

John Derbyshire spoke at the Mencken Club recently (November 3, just before the midterms) and spoke on the subject of anarcho-tyranny.

Thank you for being here, and thanks to Paul [Gottfried] for what already looks... Read More

There is no lie more dangerous than believing America is a free country. Those who act as if it is swiftly learn otherwise, as Gavin McInnes and the Proud Boys can testify. And it’s increasingly hard to take pundits and journalists’ condemnations of “authoritarianism” seriously when Americans are already living under an authoritarian system—albeit one... Read More

One of the frequent comparisons that comes up in the Dissident Right is who was more correct or prescient, Orwell or Huxley. In fact, as the only truly oppressed intellectual group, the Dissident Right are the only ones in a position to offer a valid opinion on this, as no other group of intellectuals suffers... Read More

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.

Sadly, but not unexpectedly, the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh is being used to justify new infringements on liberty. Of course, opponents of gun rights are claiming this shooting proves America needs more gun control. Even some who normally oppose gun control say the government needs to do more to... Read More
Police stand at the entrance to Rodef Shalom Temple before funeral services for brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal, victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, in Pittsburgh
I was hesitant to write on the subject while the Pittsburgh dead weren’t buried yet. I know, it is not a valid consideration for the militant pundits. The US Jews accused President Trump and the Israeli Jews blamed Palestinians for the shooting as on the cue before the victims were declared dead. However, you can’t... Read More

Robert Faurisson, Demonized Skeptic who Battled for the Right to Doubt
French Professor Robert Faurisson died of heart failure at his longtime home in Vichy, France on October 21.

A bit of back history: I started learning about intelligence and intelligence tests when I was an undergraduate in 1964-1968. This included taking group intelligence tests at the beginning of my psychology course, and giving face to face Wechsler tests in my final year. I then started my first research project leading to my PhD:... Read More

The leaked internal Google briefing “The Good Censor” [PDF] has received suspiciously little attention from the Main Stream Media, but it represents the crassest statement yet of the Tech oligopolies’ intention to impose Silicon Valley Political Correctness on the U.S. As American Thinker Editor Thomas Lifson puts it: “I congratulate Breitbart.com for the scoop, and...

The life of a professional political satirist is many things, but it is certainly never boring. Last week, for example, was particularly not boring.
