My Name is Earl: A Review

2,567 words

“You know the kind of guy who does nothing but bad things, and wonders why his life sucks? Well, that was me.” So began the early episodes of My Name is Earl, a comedy series which ran from 2005 to 2009 and followed the life of working-class white man Earl Hickey on his quest to make up for all of his past sins. This series from writer and director Greg Garcia combined genuinely funny and creative writing with an unfortunate proto-SJW mindset which elevated “victim” groups and denigrated white people in a way that is increasingly prevalent in popular entertainment today.

Remembering Guillaume Faye:
November 7, 1949–March 7, 2019

1,241 words

I was deeply saddened to learn today of the death of French New Right philosopher and polemicist Guillaume Faye after a battle with cancer. Faye had been sick for some time, but he was so focused on writing what will now be his last book that he postponed seeing a doctor until it was complete. When he finally sought medical attention, he was diagnosed with stage four cancer. There is no stage five. Guillaume Faye gave his life for his work, and his work for Europe. Read more …

The Punisher

3,346 words

About a month ago, a friend suggested I check out The Punisher, Netflix’s 2017 series. Wary though I am of the Marvel Comics Universe and modern entertainment, I must say what he said about the series was rather appealing. So, I bit the bullet and watched the thing. Now, recently, Netflix announced that it would be canceling the show due to attempts by Disney Read more …

Turning Point Trumpism

Charlie Kirk at CPAC, where a cardboard flat = truth in advertising

1,743 words

Another CPAC has come and gone, and national populism was almost non-existent at this year’s conservative gala.

Even though Donald Trump became president on a national populist agenda that challenged conservative orthodoxy on immigration, foreign policy, trade, and state power, CPAC 2019 offered the impression he won on the stale conservatism of Ronald Reagan.

The major themes of CPAC 2019 were the evils of socialism (but no mention of why it’s becoming popular), the sheer awesomeness of Israel, Read more …

Glass

809 words

M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass is a sequel to two of his films, Unbreakable (2000), which is my favorite of his works, and Split (2016), which I found to be quite unpleasant, although I must concede that it is brilliantly acted in the lead role(s) by James McEvoy.

Unbreakable is a deeply moving film about how David Dunn (Bruce Willis)—once a brilliant college athlete who has been emasculated by his wife, an overprotective physical therapist—discovers that he is not an ordinary man. Read more …

Not Over: Al Qaeda’s Story

3,501 words

Ali Soufan
Anatomy of Terror: From the Death of Bin Laden to the Rise of the Islamic State
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2017

Ali Soufan is famous, to put it mildly. A fictionalized version of him was played by Tahar Rahim in Hulu’s miniseries, The Looming Tower. He is also a bestselling author. The foundation of Soufan’s fame is the fact that he was an FBI[1] agent investigating Al Qaeda prior to, during, and after 9/11. Read more …

Pope Francis kisses up to the Grand Imam of al-Azha

1,711 words

What I want to talk to you about today is the one thing that makes a political movement successful, the thing that’s missing when movements fail. Read more …

A Dissident Remembers Jim Croce

Jim Croce

3,062 words

Jim Croce may be one of the most overlooked and underrated singer-songwriters of the rock era. This may be because his ideas often pre-date rock-‘n’-roll, and are in some ways anti-rock for eschewing themes pertaining to youth and rebellion. A cursory look at his best songs reveals that few songwriters are as adept at chronicling experiences which are uniquely and universally masculine. Read more …

In Defense of Gangs

2,241 words

Ever since I was a small child, I was fascinated by organized crime. Sure, what kid hasn’t dreamt of being a robber in the eternal conflict between cops and robbers, but there was a deeper connection there — I marveled at the organized, hierarchical, and methodical ways in which organized crime groups went about committing crime. And what crime at that — Read more …

Amazon.com Bans The White Nationalist Manifesto

1,310 words

On Sunday, February 24th, 2019, Amazon.com — the world’s book marketplace — banned my book The White Nationalist Manifesto.

Amazon did not merely decide to no longer stock the book. They also removed the product listing pages. So it is as if the book never even existed.

Orwell called this the “memory hole.” It is not enough for totalitarians to kill their enemies. They must also be erased from history.  Read more …

On the “Unreflected Substantiality” of the Chinese Mind

7,688 words

As the Chinese “silent invasion” of Australia, New Zealand, and Canada continues, you may want to learn something about the Western academics who lay the intellectual groundwork for this invasion. In a prior article, “The Transcendental Mind of Europeans Stands Above the Embedded Mind of Asians,” we met two influential scholars calling upon whites to abandon their “failed” attempts to formulate transcendental truths for the sake of the more “profound” contextual approach of Chinese philosophers with their demonstration that all thinking is “embedded” to a time and a place.

Age of Cringe:
Alt-Right: Age of Rage

2,003 words

Based on a few clips, I was certain that Alt-Right: Age of Rage (2018) would lead to permanent physical damage from sheer cringiness. But I was delighted to have been proven wrong. This is a remarkably fair-minded documentary. On balance, though, I think it will be good for white identity politics. Age of Rage was directed by Adam Bhala Lough, an American of partial South Asian descent.

Michael Crichton’s State of Fear

Michael Crichton
State of Fear
New York: HarperCollins, 2004

State of Fear is a 2004 techno-thriller by Michael Crichton, who also authored The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, Prey, Next, and other science fiction and speculative novels. Crichton’s formula was to make heavy use of established science and extrapolate into “What if?” scenarios, constructing fast-paced thriller plots hinging on the scientific fads of the day.

1,223 words

The alleged “hate crime” against black actor Jussie Smollett turned out as we all expected: it was just another hoax.

To refresh everyone’s memory, Smollett – a singer and star on the black TV show Empire – claimed last month that he was assaulted by two white Trump supporters at 2 AM in downtown Chicago while it was experiencing subzero temperatures. Read more …

American media strategies: the Knavs case

From the very outset, President Trump’s brave attempt at draining the bureaucratic-kleptocratic “Washington swamp” of establishment politics brought out the poisonous snakes of the American mainstream media. Headed by the spin doctors and “fake news” masters of CNN, President Trump has come under sustained attack: vicious attempts at character assassination, with backbiting scandal-mongering and deep-state political intrigue being amplified coast-to-coast, along with round-the-clock journalistic mockery and taunting of the most infantile and malicious kind.
