The Bravest Nerd In All The World

There is a particular courage required to be a nerd in a Western country. Not so much in East Asia, where the nerds get the girls and the marks. But in the Anglo-Celtic West, we still have a residual honour culture left over from our warlike ancestors. Being the kid then who always sticks his hand up in Science to ask the teacher tricky questions that no-one cares about, knowing you’re going to get a wedgie or a headlock at lunch as a result, takes balls.

Julian Assange has YUGE balls.

I have only recently become an admirer of this silver-haired savant.… Read the rest “The Bravest Nerd In All The World”

Donald Trump Is America’s Julius Caesar

Every so often in history a man comes along who overthrows a corrupt elite and resets the political establishment. We live in such a time. In our time that man is Donald Trump.

Establishment politicians, media and academics are now all united against Trump’s presidency. They are also all revealed as being more interested in protecting their power and their reputations than in principles, truth or serving the people. The rage of the elites against Trump is so obvious it’s shocking. They know that if Trump becomes president they face exposure. What the public has already seen through the leaked emails and videos has been enough to make many of us sick.… Read the rest “Donald Trump Is America’s Julius Caesar”

How Trump Will Make America Moral Again

This article appeared originally on Eagle Rising.

In 1972, President Nixon spoke with his staff about covering up a burglary at the DNC headquarters. An investigation followed. To save the nation the prolonged scandal of an impeachment, he resigned the presidency.

In 2009, Secretary of State Clinton made the decision to continue using an unsecured BlackBerry and private server in her basement to send and receive work-related emails. These included highly sensitive information with none of the usual security protocols. Following an attack on the embassy in Benghazi which led to the death of the ambassador, investigators requested Clinton hand over her emails from her time as secretary.… Read the rest “How Trump Will Make America Moral Again”

Is Obama Starting World War III?

This article appeared originally on The Daily Caller.

In the latest escalation of rhetoric over the situation in Syria, Obama administration officials have indicated a willingness to use airstrikes against Bashar Al-Assad’s forces in Aleppo to prevent them from taking control of the strategically important city. Last Thursday Russian Major General Igor Konashenkov responded by warning that Russia would shoot down any coalition jets carrying out airstrikes against Syrian government forces in Aleppo. This is the clearest indication from the Russians that they will directly use force against America and its allies to protect the Syrian regime.

These alarming developments lead to a very troubling question.… Read the rest “Is Obama Starting World War III?”

The Puppet Show Is Over

Hillary Clinton had a bad slip last week. No, not when she was suddenly unable to walk at the 9/11 memorial ceremony and had to be carried to a waiting van and rushed to Chelsea’s New York apartment because of ‘pneumonia’. The slip I am referring to was at a high-end LGBT fundraising event, when she referred to a quarter of Americans as a ‘basket of deplorables’.

Hillary has since apologised and retracted her comment, but it’s too late. The damage has been done.

What makes this comment a gaffe for the ages is what it reveals about how the establishment operates.… Read the rest “The Puppet Show Is Over”

Central Bankers Have Set Us Up For Catastrophe

One of the many titanic entities which collapsed during the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 was the reputation of former Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan. Presumably another one was his ego, although he’s not letting on. This man was held singularly responsible for the Great Moderation of the 1990’s, the economic miracle in the US of low inflation, rising nominal (that means not real) wages, statistically low unemployment (also not real) and steadily rising asset prices. Just about everyone was happy. The 0.01% received a massive boost to their net worth as leverage (that’s debt to us peasants) became cheaper and corporate valuations skyrocketed due to the replacement of US workers and consumers with much cheaper versions overseas.… Read the rest “Central Bankers Have Set Us Up For Catastrophe”

Welfare is Warfare

This post originally appeared on XYZ.

If there was any decade in which the decline of the West became a foregone conclusion, it was the 60’s. Many of the shackles which hinder our liberties today were forged during that storied and romanticised period, and many of the fissures which are ripping at the fabric of Western society now first appeared at that time. The ugly beast of #BlackLivesMatter today is a direct descendant of the 60’s civil rights agitation. It was the decade in which critical theory hit the Western bloodstream, and began gnawing away at the integrity of our academic institutions.… Read the rest “Welfare is Warfare”

The Storm Is Just Starting

Can you see the drops of rain on the windscreen? First Brexit, plop. Then European bank shares tumble, plop. Then the engineered war begins between black Americans and cops, plop. The downpour is beginning.

For those who have bothered to look up from the propaganda on their smartphones, this storm has been apparent for a long time. I’ve been watching the clouds ever so slowly gather since 2008. Like many people, it’s taken longer than I thought it would. That just means, though, that the storm will be even bigger than anyone had anticipated.

With Brexit, the coming catastrophe has started to enter the mainstream #normie narrative.… Read the rest “The Storm Is Just Starting”

Hubris Will Bring Down The System

There’s a madness which descends on elites during the collapse phase of an imperial lifecycle. It is the apogee of decadence, when the reality bubble around the imperial elite floats off into thin air to meet the waiting pins of reality. This is the stage at which pampered Austrian princesses are told that the peasants have no bread, and reply they should eat brioche. It’s also the stage at which life inside the empire takes on an air of unreality and lies are everywhere, such as Rousseau’s (typical) lie quoting Marie Antoinette. It’s the moment when Wile E. Coyote has run off the cliff but not realised it yet. The Anglo-American imperium is at precisely this stage right now.… Read the rest “Hubris Will Bring Down The System”

Marxism Is Satanic I

In school you were probably indoctrinated with one or both of two historiologies: the accidental and the progressivist theory of history. Both require great leaps of faith. The accidental theory of how history operates is premised upon scientific materialism, if it is premised upon anything at all. Proteins and amino acids bumped together in puddles until they made DNA then one day, poof! The Holy Roman Empire. It’s always struck me how much doublethink is required for such an outlandish philosophy of how history operates, and the low value this belief system places on human life. According to this faith, you’re a well-behaved monkey.… Read the rest “Marxism Is Satanic I”
