As you can see, our traffic has remained pretty much plateaued since January. This has been our pattern: growth spurts, followed by a few months plateaued.

Our number one essay, Daniel Michaels on Stalin’s plan to conquer Europe, has been a perennial favorite since we first published it in April of 2011. Two other perennial favorites, Irmin Vinson on Hitler and Gregory Hood on Scarface, were in our top 10 yet again.
Greg Johnson had four articles in the top 20 (3 in the top 10). Jef Costello had three articles in the top 20. Matt Parrott and two top 20 articles, and Gregory Hood had two in the top 10.
Six of our top 20 articles are about movies and television: Gregory Hood on Scarface and The Hunger Games, Jef Costello on Fight Club and Breaking Bad, Trevor Lynch on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which has been in the top ten for 5 months now), and Jonathan Bowden on The Passion of the Christ. Since Hollywood and the television industry are the primary media of anti-white propaganda, racially conscious analyses of movies and TV are highly effective at drawing traffic and combating enemy propaganda. (See Trevor Lynch, “Why I Write.”)
