Following a summer of violence that inflicted billions of dollars in property damage and led to 25 deaths, the FBI has finally come up with a response for one of the worst intelligence failures in history: the violent riots that simultaneously engulfed the major cities in America were "random" and have no organizational culprit. This... Read More

George Floyd died in police custody on May 25. Since then, there have been demonstrations in his name in more than 2,000 American cities. There has been so much rioting and looting that at least 200 cities imposed curfews, and 31 states and the District of Columbia called in the National Guard. It would be... Read More

The cries for justice over the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were hoaxes. Both men were criminals who died because they were dumb enough to assault men with guns. The same is true of Ahmaud Arbery. They got justice. Jussie Smollet and Bubba Wallace were hoaxers painting themselves as victims of hate crimes.... Read More

Black militia at Stone Mountain. Cocky, heavily armed, outgunning the police. White militias have similar firepower. A fight is entirely possible. In downtown America. Hoo-boy. She’s ready to explode, go high order. Smoking ruins, dead bodies, seething hatreds, and a country that can’t be put back together. It may not happen, but she looks ready.... Read More
With the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse under nightly siege from violent radicals, and Portland's police hard-pressed to protect it, President Trump sent in federal agents to secure the building. The reaction from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: "The use of stormtroopers under the guise of law and order is a tactic that... Read More
Black Lives Matter protest in Miama, FL
The last few weeks have seen the greatest wave of American urban unrest in two generations. Massive protests, riots, and looting have swept across dozens of our major cities, accompanied by an enormous amount of political vandalism, often targeting monuments to our country's former presidents and other historical figures. Most importantly, powerful elements of our... Read More
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell and San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly both recently denied that the Federal Reserve’s policies create economic inequality. Unfortunately for Powell, Daly, and other Fed promoters, a cursory look at the Fed’s operations shows that the central bank is the leading cause of economic inequality. The Federal Reserve manipulates the... Read More

Two Not-So-New Novels Offer Imaginative Insights into Current Concerns
Is the “woke” United States, reeling from the officially-approved George Floyd riots and accompanying outbursts of iconoclasm, undergoing its own version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution? And will it lead to some form of genocide against people of European ancestry? Normally I would be the last guy at Unz Review to be asking such questions.... Read More

From the newly-released transcripts that are part of a legal filing by Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, who has requested that the Hennepin County District Court dismiss the case against his client: The transcripts reveal that as the officers forced Floyd into the vehicle, the 46-year-old black man said: “I can’t breathe” and “I want to...

A Mercer Interview
On July 2, 2020, I joined my favorite broadcaster, “Col. Mike” of the John Fredericks Show, syndicated out of Virginia, for a wide-ranging discussion about the issues of the day—from the Soweto-style shantytowns that had sprung-up in Seattle, to China and the Covid quagmire, to America’s immigration-visa labyrinth, and more. In his interview style, the... Read More

According to the... Read More

I have searched the Internet and cannot find the alleged second autopsy—the so-called “independent autopsy” hired by “George Floyd’s family.” I have no difficulty finding the official medical examiner’s report, but there is no sign of a second autopsy. Those of you who are convinced it exists please send me the URL. It will prove... Read More
As readers know, I am a long-time critic of gratuitous police violence. My many columns on the subject have cost me readers who saw my columns as undermining the police and thereby law and order. I agree with readers that crime is real and that there is a danger that punishing the police for abusing... Read More
The Seattle Commune is no more. Declared three weeks ago by radical leftists as CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, rechristened CHOP, the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest, the six-block enclave inside Seattle ceased to exist July 1. The cops shut it down. As Marx said, history repeats itself, first as tragedy then as farce. If... Read More

What is the best way to debunk a conspiracy theory? Call it a conspiracy theory, a label which in and of itself implies disbelief. The only problem with that is there have been many actual conspiracies both historically and currently and many of them are not in the least theoretical in nature. Conspiracies of several...

Good grief! They looted Macy's! Yes, the riots, assaults, lootings, and statue-destruction of the past month have been something to watch, and of course the topic of endless comment and speculation. I've been contributing my own comments at Radio Derb. Speculation-wise, there are two areas concerning which I'd be very interested to see what future... Read More
The US is under attack not only by the Covid virus but also by ideas that have deracinated a significant percentage of white people from their culture and history. It is an indication of end times when the self-inflicted death of a felon strung out on a fatal overdose of an opioid can result in... Read More

Imagine for a moment that you’re on a sports team that has never won a championship game, that only rarely wins a game at all, that comes in near or dead last in the rankings season after season after season. And imagine you want to win for once – not just a few games, but... Read More
Within the last few days two commentators I respect—The Saker and Dmitry Orlov—have written that the United States is now undergoing systemic collapse. My view, reflected in my articles published over the years, is that the United States ceased to exist decades ago. It is only the foundational strength of the country put in place... Read More

The imposition of the nationwide lockdowns required elite consensus. There's no way that a project of that magnitude could have been carried out absent the nearly universal support of establishment elites and their lackeys in the political class. There must have also been a fairly-detailed media strategy that excluded the voices of lockdown opponents while--... Read More
Have you noticed what I have noticed—that of the trillions of words in print and on the air, there are precious few that are not garbage. Among the few commentators I read is The Saker. He sees the US in systemic collapse— . Other commentators who I read, such as Dmitry Orlov, see the collapse... Read More

“Then who do we shoot?” Like Muley Graves the sharecropper, John Steinbeck’s evocative Okie everyman in John Ford’s 1940 film, many Americans are bewildered by a tidal wave of forces that seem beyond their control. The answer is not easy. But increasingly it seems likely to involve geographical partition. Facing eviction from his dust-bowl farm,... Read More
Recent disastrous decisions by our “conservative” U.S. Supreme Court shows that, if Ann Coulter’s Adios America! was the most important book of the 2016 election, Christopher Caldwell’s The Age of Entitlement is the most important book of the 2020 cycle. He argues that the new constitution effectively created by the misnamed Civil Rights Act has... Read More

Nor, Many Say Quietly, Worth Saving
What fun, what entertainment. And rare: One seldom sees the collapse of a landmark society in a rush of wondrous idiocy. Would I could sell tickets. Don’t look at it as a loss, but as a show, an unwanted but grand amusement. The coup de grace in our ripening decadence is the current uprising purportedly,... Read More
This is an introduction to a letter written by a black American professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He says that the University no longer serves scholarship and has become a servant to the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. He says that the university is akin to a suppressive regime that crushes real... Read More

Tucker Carlson is right, the protests and riots are not a momentary civil disturbance. They are an attack the Constitutional Republic itself, the heart and soul of American democracy. The Black Lives Matter protests are just the tip of the spear, they are an expression of public outrage that is guaranteed under the first amendment.... Read More
The November presidential election has been racialized by the Democrats, media, white liberal elites, and the George Floyd protests. The racialization makes this election a watershed. The Democrats, media, and white liberal elites have placed the responsibility for the multi-city rioting and looting by blacks on white Americans for being racist. Although the evidence is...

The presstitutes’ story is that George Floyd died from asphyxiation—“I can’t breathe”—from a police officer’s knee on his neck. This story is not supported by the autopsy and toxicology reports. The autopsy report says Floyd died of a heart attack and that no life-threatening injuries were inflicted by police restraint. The medical examiner found no... Read More
The Late Sam Francis On Why Our Ruling Class Won’t Stand Up To Rioters
See also: In Memoriam Sam Francis (April 29, 1947—February 15, 2005) Our once-proud country is meekly standing down in the face of rioting mobs, and most of our political and corporate elite are openly siding with the black and radical rabble and against the civilizational inheritance which allows them to function. Meanwhile, I have, quite... Read More
The George Floyd riots are a manufactured crisis, but the leader of America’s flagship conservative magazine is looking for ways to surrender. Rich Lowry recently endorsed removing Confederate statues and scorned the Lost Cause. “Secession was a traitorous act that threatened to destroy the American nation,” he wrote, “to create a rump republic built on...

Our Current Dilemmas Go Much Deeper Than Racism
In Russia Today, Helen Buyniski reflects on corporate responses to the depiction of Black people in brand labeling. Buyniski highlights the comments of B and G Foods as it jumped onto the bandwagon of corporate virtue signaling. The company signaled its intentions to “proactively take steps to ensure that we and our brands do not... Read More
The last three weeks have left white Americans in shock and awe. The Republican Party has officially sided with violent criminals over police, transsexuals over Christians, and Howard Zinn's "Juneteenth" 1619 over George Washington's 1776. As GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell condemns white people for the "original sin" of racism, voters are hearing them... Read More
George Floyd was not killed by police. According to the toxicology report, Floyd died from a concentration of Fentanyl in his blood three times the fatal dose. Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid 50 times more potent than heroin. You can read the analysis here— . A link is provided to the autopsy report. Think about... Read More

I have to say that I am amazed that so many folks on the Left seem to think that the current riots in the US are a spontaneous rebellion against police violence, systemic racism, and history of persecution and exploitation of Blacks and Indians, etc. As for the violence, looting and riots - they are...

Fatal Fentanyl: A Forensic Analysis
Truth is the first victim in politics. Factions and passions rule. Random facts are picked as weapons, no one thinks things through. We need to understand the facts surrounding the death of George Floyd. Many key facts are being ignored: Floyd’s blood tests showed a concentration of Fentanyl of about three times the fatal dose....

"Can we all just get along?" That was the plea of Rodney King after a Simi Valley jury failed to convict any of the four cops who beat him into submission after a 100-mile-an-hour chase on an LA freeway. King's plea came after the 1992 LA riots, the worst since the New York City draft... Read More
Hi Dumbshit American. Have you had enough of diversity and multiculturalism? If not, vote a Democrat president, and the second wave of peaceful protests will loot and burn down your homes and neighborhoods. Be sure you understand that diversity means no more white statues and white history, because they are racist. Multiculturalism means no more... Read More

A guy with who once pointed a gun at the belly of a woman during an armed robbery was actually “a gentle giant,” according to ABC News. It quotes one of his buddies, “Anybody who knows him will tell you he’s not confrontational.” At George Floyd’s funeral, the mayor of Minneapolis, Richard Frey, knelt by... Read More

The May 25th killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota shocked the world and set off mass protests against racism and police brutality in dozens of cities from the mid-western United States to the European Union, all in the midst of a global...

Does anyone believe the nationwide riots and looting are a spontaneous reaction to the killing of George Floyd? It's all too coordinated, too widespread, and too much in-sync with the media narrative that applauds the "mainly peaceful protests" while ignoring the vast destruction to cities across the country. What's that all about? Do the instigators... Read More

The marriage of post-Lockdown and George Floyd protests has nurtured a rough beast that is still immune to any form of civilized debate in the U.S.: the Seattle Commune. So what really is the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone cum People’s Republic all about? Are the communards mere useful idiots? Is this a refined Occupy Wall... Read More
America's most watched cable news show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, is on the brink of being canceled. Carlson, the only high-profile journalist in America who defends and advocates for normal people, has had some of his last few remaining sponsors pull their ads this week over his accurate coverage of the George Floyd race riots. Jews,... Read More

On June 9, I tweeted out the following: “Seattle's East Precinct has fallen, as Police Chief Carmen Best orders Seattle Police to evacuate. The occupiers, aka the ‘peaceful protesters,’ declare victory. ‘They’ve given us the precinct,’ they boast. Not even in South Africa.” A mere day on, and the City of Seattle is de facto... Read More
I had a recent discussion with a friend regarding the motives of upper class non-Jewish white left-liberals -- the Second Estate of the American Oligarchic Realm -- in their support for psychotic causes like "defund the police." A dispute arose regarding the intellectual vector for their brainwashing. Putting aside institutional incentives, my opponent stated that... Read More

So, the GloboCap-Resistance Minneapolis Putsch appears to have not gone exactly to plan. Once again, Trump failed to go full-Hitler, despite their best efforts to goad him into doing so. They gave it quite a good shot, however. It was more or less a textbook regime-change op, or “color revolution,” or whatever you call it.... Read More
I have come to the conclusion that collectively Americans are mentally and emotionally stupid. On any given day there is endless evidence that this is the case. Just a few selections from news of the last couple of days should suffice to establish the point. Instead of reforming police training as a rational response to... Read More
Newly painted in huge yellow letters on 16th Street, just north of the White House, is the slogan: "Defund the Police." That new message sits beside the "Black Lives Matter" slogan, also in huge letters, painted there at the direction of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. She renamed that section of 16th Street "Black Lives Matter... Read More
