Learning from Donald Trump

1,676 words

Having a Mencken-like disdain for America’s ruling class, I would like to put forward what I have entitled Quintilian’s Postulate 1: conservatives are stupid and lack courage; liberals are stupid and lack self-awareness. Donald Trump is a unique politician, I believe, because he possesses both courage and self-awareness.

Preference Falsification & White Nationalism

2,521 words

Timur Kuran

One of the many interesting things about the election of Donald Trump is how spectacularly wrong the mainstream media were in their predictions. In part this was, quite obviously, loosely (?) coordinated psychological warfare designed to intimidate and demoralize potential Trump voters. But their predictive failure was also the result of a more organic phenomenon, one ultimately rooted in the same maelstrom of Jewish culture war that produced these coordinated efforts, but expressed in the concept of preference falsification, defined by the Turkish-American economist Timur Kuran Read more …

What Trump’s Election Means for Identitarianism

baldeagle2,336 words

Last April, I wrote an article for Counter-Currents called “What Would a Trump Presidency Mean for Europe?” In it, I — like so many others in our neck of the political woods — predicted that Trump would win the election, and I discussed the impact I thought his victory would have on the situation in Europe.

From Civic Nationalism to Racial Nationalism:
Towards a Racial View of History & Society

domenichino_-_a_triumphal_arch_of_allegories_-_wga064091,982 words

With the election of Donald Trump, the white race has won an important battle in the War of White Dispossession. Without exaggeration, this moment is very likely to be recorded by future historians as an important turning point, as a watershed moment, one of several fateful moments in the course of our history when the white race was saved in a desperate situation, on a par with Battle of Tours or Siege of Vienna.  Read more …

Campaign Diary
Fort Trump in Philly

sunday-013116-trump-315x4131,042 words

Well. Well. We now have a so-called Nazi president. During the campaign, I got two mad e-mails from a young Italian gigolo pal spanking me for being a Trump supporter. I soon confessed to working the phones at the local Trump Office. Then, when I got promoted, I further confessed to being Media Spokesman at Trump HQS in Philly. That’s right. By the time the election was over, I was Minister of Information at Trump’s fort and brain-trust in the heart of Hillary Country.  Read more …

We Need to Move:
An Alt Right Take on the 2016 Election

2,512 words

trumptriumphAs thrilling as it was to watch Donald Trump take the White House on November 8th, things aren’t as bullish for the Alt Right as they seem. Despite his comfortable 74 electoral vote spread, Trump won not because he called upon an insurmountable mass of white voters to overcome the opposition at the polls. In absolute terms, he drew fewer white votes than Mitt Romney did in 2012 despite the slightly increased white turnout in 2016. Trump won because he ran a smarter, more energetic campaign against a corrupt, low-charisma opponent in Hillary Clinton who was foolish enough to believe her own hype. Read more …

That Disorientation You Are Feeling is Called “Winning”

924 words

winnersarentlosersIt hasn’t really sunk in yet, has it?

I tried to avoid the internet for most of Election Day. As my readers know, I expressed confidence that Trump would win. But that was a bit of a lie — a noble lie, said to bolster my readers and get them to the polls. Secretly, I feared that the Forces of Evil might triumph once more. I was prepared to be bitterly disappointed, and that is why I wrote “After Trump.” It was an attempt to get my thoughts together; to steel myself for the worst, and soldier bravely on come November 9th.  Read more …

Try Sincerity for a Change

1,212 words

Sunday afternoon, I had a rather exhausting conversation with a friend who is supporting Hillary Clinton. She was well-versed in Hillary’s various policy proposals, but I did not want to argue those points, simply because Hillary’s real problem is not what she proposes but the fact that she can’t be trusted at all. So I focused on the issue of Hillary’s sincerity vs. Trump’s. I had some success, so I think it is worthwhile to summarize the gist of my arguments here.  Read more …
