Amid the patriotic bombast about Making America Great Again at the Republican Convention nominating President Trump for a second term on 24 August, nobody noticed that it began on the anniversary of one of the most humiliating defeats in American history. It was on this day more than two centuries earlier in 1814 that a... Read More
Racism was stronger in the North than in the South
This article concludes this seven-part series on Lincoln’s war against the South. The war ended 155 years ago. In the century and a half since, the war’s history has been falsified and misrepresented as a righteous war by the freedom-loving North against the slave-holding South. The absence of supporting facts has not hampered this false... Read More
Never before have I seen the case of Dred Scott as completely and accurately presented as John Remington Graham presents it in his monograph, Blood Money: The Civil War and the Federal Reserve ( www.turningthetidepublishing.com ), republished below with permission. Dred Scott was a slave who belonged to a United States Army officer, an army... Read More
Continuing from the prior column– — John Remington Graham’s thesis that the mis-named “civil war” was fomented by bankers who desired a large national debt that they could acquire in order to expand and contract currency and credit and thus control the economy and government, I present today with permission Graham’s analysis of the repeal,...

Some black Americans have created a black version of the KKK. They have even adopted similar terminology. The leader is called “Grand Master Jay.” The job of the organization, NFAC, is “to protect the black community” from white people. The KKK’s job was to protect the white Southern community, which was under attack by Reconstruction.... Read More

The Jewish football player Julian Edelman wants to bring superstar DeSean Jackson to the Jewish Holocaust Museum, the one just across from the Department of the Treasury in Washington, DC, where America’s money is printed. Jackson enraged the Jews, who are forever trying to avoid standing up for racial justice in America. They have become... Read More
Just Who Was Behind the East African Slave Trade?
Two young Flemish nationalist politicians have symbolically restored a century-old monument to the Belgian Congo. The reason? Not for any particular sympathy for Belgium’s colonial past, but because the monument mentions a taboo fact: the Belgian annihilation of the Arab/Muslim-led slave trade in eastern Congo. The Monument features a statue of a Belgian crushing an... Read More
The Best Thing George F. Will Has Ever Done Highly Recommended We can add to Will’s list Greek, Roman, and other ancient artifacts from slave-owning societies in museums throughout the Western world. The Roman statues in the Met celebrate slave-holders and must be defaced and destroyed. The Roman colosseum and other remains must be pulled... Read More
Busan, 2020
Near my guesthouse in Busan, there’s a Mongolian restaurant, Chinggis Khaan. On its sign, there’s a portrait of the conqueror, looking stern, with a lineup of archers on horseback, behind him. Though I had walked by Chinggis Khaan many times, I never entered because I thought it was probably some jive joint, run by Koreans.... Read More
President Trump is making plain the degree to which the country remains divided by the American Civil War. His threat to veto the $718bn Defence Bill if it renames military bases called after Confederate generals harks back to 1861. His stand highlights the bizarre way that the US military has named its biggest bases, like... 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
Are the young Brits and Americans who genuinely feel guilty about the colonial and racist crimes of their white ancestors also willing to be subject to a special whites-only tax allocating a significant portion of their incomes to Black organizations so justice can, finally, prevail? Will these young White revolutionary spirits support, for instance, a... Read More
Conservative leaders snigger at protesters seeking the removal of statues memorialising those whose fortunes came from the exploitation of slaves. The leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, implied facetiously this week that such demands are on a par with seeking to knock down Stonehenge on the grounds that it once could have been...

It is easy to forget how explicitly racist British society was within living memory. I’m not talking about unconscious prejudice, or social media tropes. I’m talking about openly celebrating racism in the public space, about major companies making racism integral to their brand, a selling-point. Roberston’s, Britain’s leading jam maker, made their orange marmalade sweeter... Read More
All the leading candidates for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 call for reparations to blacks from whites for the crime of slavery. High profile conservatives reject this claim. Thomas Sowell dismisses it as fraudulent: “However, seen as a source of a lasting unmet grievance, it is a stroke of genius to keep blacks... Read More

The New York Times’ assault on white Americans, about which I wrote yesterday ( ), is not unique to the New York Times. White people are the targets of Identity Politics—the political ideology of the Democrat Party. The demonization of white people is the main focus of “Black Studies” in universities and schools. Corporate adds... Read More
Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the presstitute New York Times, announced on August 12, 2019, the “1619 Project” which reinvents American history and reduces it to racism and slavery. As I wrote in my remarks on the project on August 22, 2019, the New York Times has an agenda which is to dehumanize and... Read More

The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project is the future of American education. Buffalo Public Schools announced this month that the essay series will now be mandatory for its students and other school districts are soon to follow. The news was greeted with grumbles from acclaimed historians and conservatives, who despise 1619 Project’s attacks on... Read More

It was inevitable that the Black Reparations debate would ultimately shine a spotlight on those who profited the most from the 500-year destruction of Black civilization. The selective banning by Amazon of the Nation of Islam’s The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews book series was a clear indication of how skittish Jews have become... Read More
In Eric Kaufman’s Whiteshift: Populism, Immigration, and the Future of White Majorities, the author asks, “What happens if rural and red-state America is permanently frozen out of power when it considers itself the repository of authentic Americanism?” H.W. Brands’s book, Heirs of the Founders, provides an answer: national disintegration. Mr. Brand’s analysis of what led... Read More

See, earlier: Time, Once Again, To Rethink Martin Luther King Day–The 2019 Edition If you want to know what our Ruling Class wants us to think, an excellent resource is Smithsonian Magazine. The May 2, 2019 issue features an article titled “A New Civil War Museum Speaks Truths in the Former Capital of the Confederacy.”... Read More
Recently I wrote of the failure of white liberals to realize the consequences of their good intentions toward preferred minorities. The cost of this miscalculation rises by the day. Now white people in America are to be stripped of their history, because white history traumatizes preferred minorities. At George Washington High School in northern California... Read More
The outrage expressed by various establishment figures and institutions at the decision by Cambridge University to hold a two-year inquiry into its historic links to the slave trade demonstrates the continuing sensitivity and relevance of the topic. Critics of the inquiry claim that such focus on slavery is simply bowing to a trend, the suggestion... Read More
The Jews’ path to profitable victimhood was the Holocaust. For blacks the path is slavery. We hear endlessly about Slavery. Slavery is always the fault of white people, especially the Founding Fathers, the Confederacy, and Robert E. Lee. Slavery is never the fault of black Africans who engaged in slave wars against one another. Slaves... Read More

Podcast Interview: They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold Story of Enslavement of Whites in Early America. In 1997, Prime Minister Paul Keating of Australia refused to show "proper respect" to Britain's Queen Elizabeth II during her state visit. In response, Terry Dicks, a Conservative member of the British Parliament said, "It's a... Read More
We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you... Read More
When I read Professor Thomas DiLorenzo’s article ( ) the question that lept to mind was, “How come the South is said to have fought for slavery when the North wasn’t fighting against slavery?” Two days before Lincoln’s inauguration as the 16th President, Congress, consisting only of the Northern states, passed overwhelmingly on March 2,...

Dark Spots in a Shining Sea of Twaddle
Much is written about slavery and its aftermaths. A large part of this is frenetically modified history issuing from people both excited and poorly read, a comic-book version apparently intended to support agendas of the impenetrably adolescent Left. A few points: First, slavery was always bad, frequently hideous, much worse in the Deep South than... Read More

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition. As we are defined as racists based on our skin color, I am puzzled why we are called racists a second, third, and fourth time due to specific acts, such as favoring the enforcement of immigration laws....

First he exposed the History Channel’s miniseries “Roots”as root-and-brunch fiction. Now, the courageous epistolary warrior Kunta (Jack) Kerwick has turned his attention to correcting lies about slavery, promulgated in media and scholarly circles. A point forcefully made by Kerwick is that although a vibrant, indigenous slave trade was conducted well into the nineteenth century in... Read More
More than a century after his death, Stewart Crenshaw still provokes endless debates. With a single sublime or hypocritical decision, Crenshaw forever affixed himself to American history. Like Billy the Kid, Tokyo Rose, Muhammad Ali, or Jeffrey Dahmer, Crenshaw is an American icon, but whereas the others had to become outlaws to insinuate themselves into... Read More
Anti-white snuff films are now practically their own genre. The newest movie following in the footsteps of Machete and Django Unchained is Birth of a Nation, a loving tribute to the 1831 Nat Turner slave rebellion which led to the death of more than fifty white men, women and children. Not surprisingly, it received a... Read More
Unlike many commenters in this space, I don't particularly lament the secular rise of "universalism" that has occurred in Northwestern European societies (and their derivatives). Indeed, as a Black man, this is especially important to me. Without universalism, slavery may never have ended in the West. Without universalism, my family may never have been able... Read More
"I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you." So said Nadine Collier, who lost her mother in the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, offering forgiveness to Dylann Roof, who confessed to the atrocity that took the lives of nine churchgoers at that Wednesday night prayer...

What the Modern World Owes Slavery (It’s More Than Back Wages)
Many in the United States were outraged by the remarks of conservative evangelical preacher Pat Robertson, who blamed Haiti’s catastrophic 2010 earthquake on Haitians for selling their souls to Satan. Bodies were still being pulled from the rubble -- as many as 300,000 died -- when Robertson went on TV andgave his viewing audience a... Read More
When Americans think about slavery, we think about the Civil War, cotton plantations in Georgia, and the legacy that those centuries of bondage left in the United States. But we forget that, 200 years ago, the institution in various forms extended throughout the world: hundreds of millions of Chinese and Indian peasants were in debt... Read More
Okay, Big Oil's latest quarterly profits weren’t the highest in history. That would be the combined$51.5 billion the top six companies hauled in during a single quarter in 2008. In the third quarter of 2013, thanks to somewhat lower oil prices, the Big Five made a mere $23 billion in profits or $175,000 a minute... Read More

Melville Knew Them, We Still Live With Them
A captain ready to drive himself and all around him to ruin in the hunt for a white whale. It’s a well-known story, and over the years, mad Ahab in Herman Melville’s most famous novel, Moby-Dick, has been used as an exemplar of unhinged American power, most recently of George W. Bush’s disastrous invasion of... Read More
It seems I’ve picked up an interest in the Civil War just as America is undergoing a revival of Abolitionist Porn. That, at any rate, is what I take this much-talked-of new movie 12 Years a Slave to be. No, I haven’t seen the thing, but I’ve read reviews. Also I’ve seen (andreviewed) a specimen... Read More
Reflections on the Gettysburg Address and the Civil War
Abraham Lincoln was a fine man, a skillful politician, and a great president. Freed the slaves, of course. His address at the dedication of the military cemetery in Gettysburg on November 19, 1863--150 years ago today--is magnificent and heartfelt oratory. It is also a determined piece of goalpost shifting designed to cope with the fact... Read More
Do you remember the end of history?   I do. You know, when the collapse of Soviet communism signaled the final triumph of American style democratic republican politics and free market economics…the victory that underlies the somewhat more scientific brand of American exceptionalism practiced by President Obama and excuses the often extralegal and violent insertion of...

Continuing my series on the American nations (see also A Tentative Ranking of the Clannishness of the “Founding Fathers”; Flags of the American Nations; Sound Familiar?), I take a look at the Cavaliers. The founders of the U.S. Tidewater and Deep South were people of noble blood that originated primarily from southwestern England, in an... Read More
So I've finally seen Django Unchained. First of all, I have to say, it is actually a really good movie. Second, I have to say that all the White Nationalists and others who were pissing and moaning about this movie need to take a long look in a mirror and spend some time reading a... Read More
Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters, by Robert C. Davis
Presented with the word "slavery," what comes to your mind? If you are an American, it is surely the race slavery that was a feature of life here for 250 years, that continued through the early decades of the Republic in some states, and that caused divisions that led to the Civil War, the bloodiest...
