I sort of felt bad for Richard Spencer after reading this. In my view, Richard has his flaws and regrets, but they are to a larger extent shared by the wider milieu in which he was immersed. He wasn’t alone in the mistakes he made. Counter-Currents: “Ask not what you can do for the movement,... Read More
This week, David Vance and your columnist talk to Anne Wilson Smith, author of “Charlottesville Untold: Inside Unite the Right.” This is BIG, folks—a Big Soviet Lie à la America. Not that you’d know this from the malfunctioning media, but the 2017 rally in Virginia to protest the removal of the statue of Robert E.... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Last week, after the verdicts in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, I was jubilant. This, I said, referring to Kenosha, Wisconsin, this was small-town America at its best. The old values still stand, I said; yes, the old procedures still work; and yes, justice can... Read More

Two plaintiffs in the upcoming Sines v Kessler lawsuit have ties to, and coordinated activities with, the anti-White terrorist organization Refuse Fascism in the months prior to and during the rally.

All’s fair in love, war, and politics. That said, there needs to be at least some plausibility if you’re going to try to smear the opposition. Republican Glenn Youngkin has pulled slightly ahead of Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor’s race. In desperation, Mr. McAuliffe, who was governor during the 2017 Unite the Right...

Apart from anything else, Charlottesville Untold: Inside Unite The Right by Anne Wilson Smith is a powerful antidote to the ridiculous Regime Media headlines about “hate on trial” in the current Sines vs. Kessler civil lawsuit against organizers of the August 12 2017 Unite The Right rally in defense of the Robert E. Lee statue... Read More

Anne Wilson Smith, Charlottesville Untold: Inside the Unite the Right Rally, Shotwell Publishing, 2021, 396 pages, $24.95 paperback, $5.00 e-version from publisher Nothing has quite brought home to me the dishonesty of American journalism like watching the major “news” networks tell us what was happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017.

Last Wednesday National Justice reported that Charlottesville political prisoner James Fields was transferred to MCFP Springfield, a a federal prison hospital. After consulting with multiple sources with close ties to Fields, it has been confirmed that the cause for his hospitalization was a particularly severe schizophrenic episode he suffered.

James Fields, a Charlottesville protester who was framed as a terrorist by the media and state, has been transported MCFP Springfield, a federal medical facility, according to a search of the Bureau Of Prison's database.

The impending ritual sacrifice of Police Officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis, and the Regime Media’s increasingly absurd determination to sustain the January 6 Capitol “Insurrection” Hoax Narrative, were both presaged by the reaction to the 2017 Charlottesville VA Unite The Right Rally, of which I was the permit holder. Unfortunately, we had no U.S. Senators... Read More
When litigator Roberta Kaplan speaks to the Jewish community about her ongoing work in the Sines v. Kessler lawsuit, it is always sold as a selfless crusade to shut down the "Nazis" that marched in Charlottesville when the First Amendment failed to. What Kaplan fails to mention is how much her small law firm, Kaplan,... Read More
Recently, I pointed out that the Antifa groups that attacked the 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville VA were also key to this summer’s BLM riots. Now arrests during the current Breonna Taylor riots in Louisville KY have proved my point: notably Sean Gerwing Liter and his girlfriend Holly McGlawn-Zoller—who was notoriously caught In...

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia has ruled that the 1968 Anti-Riot Act is partially unconstitutional, yet upheld the convictions of nationalist appellants Michael Miselis and Benjamin Daley. Miselis and Daley pled guilty to "conspiracy to riot" charges in 2019 after engaging in self-defense against "antifa" attackers at the Unite the Right rally... Read More
Emily Gorcenski, the performative name of transsexual anarchist Edward Gorcenski, briefly achieved 15 minutes of fame after attending the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as a heckler. According to the media, Gorcenski was an innocent victim rather than an aggressor. But Gorcenski's social media behavior exemplifies how brazen extremist supporters of "antifa" have gotten...

On August 13, 2017, Jason Kessler, above, attempted to hold a press conference on the subject of the rally. He was physically attacked at that conference, and local authorities neither defended him, nor punished the attackers. “The Unite The Right rally was such a disaster because both organizers and attendees failed to anticipate that state...

On June 22nd, a group of anarchist hackers called DDoSecrets dumped 270 gigabytes worth of internal documents belonging to regional police fusion centers, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

There were two marches this weekend that exposed the FBI and Jewish media for the frauds they are.

Charlottesville Circuit Court Judge Richard Moore
The US Constitution still has a purpose. While it no longer serves as the basis of our legal system, it does give lawyers plenty of mental exercise finding ways to subvert its clear intent. Free speech? Not if private monopolies censor you. Freedom of assembly? Not if a masked mob gets there first. But the... Read More

A remarkable thing is happening in Charlottesville.

If they succeed, public free speech--speech that challenges prevailing... Read More

A New Faith Stirs in the Courtroom of James Fields
Charlottesville City Circuit Court, December 4, 2018. If you seek a demonstration of vigorous legal argument, you will not find it here. These proceedings are repetitive, inane and, well, boring. But they have a different virtue. The trial of James Fields may be irrelevant as an example of good law or sound logic, but it... Read More
This charming fellow, Dwayne Dixon, a hard-core Antifa, threatened Fields with a military-grade assault rifle shortly before he crashed into the crowd.
The Fields Monkey Trial for Murder Gets Off to a Rocky Start
Editor's Note: This trial has nothing to do with Russia, but I am running this series for I have seen no other reporting from inside the courthouse which is sympathetic to the defendant, who, on the face of things, has a very strong case that he is not guilty of the charges.
