Why the New York Times Is Unreformable

Even before The New York Times launched its “All Slavery, All the Time” project, no one could accuse that paper of skimping on its race coverage, particularly stories about black males killed by white(ish) police officers. Here’s one you haven’t heard about. I happened upon it by sheer accident. Antwon Rose II was a 17-year-old boy shot by an East Pittsburgh police officer in June 2018 after he bolted from a jitney car that...

Soy Soup

They must serve soy at GM’s corporate cafeteria. It could account for the strange statement released the other day by GM’s CEO Mary Barra. It says that the main purpose of GM is to make sure that “each person . . . lead(s) a life of meaning and dignity.” Wasn’t it to make cars? Emphasis on was. It isn’t anymore – apparently. “The purpose of a corporation,” the statement continues “is to serve all of its constituents,...

Why Bergoglio Hasn’t Visited Argentina

Last Saturday, I arrived in chilly Buenos Aires. I am sure it is just a coincidence, but my arrival coincided with the collapse of the peso. A dollar goes a long way in Argentina. For $40, Americans can get a four-star hotel; for $4, they can get a tasty steak. Signs of Argentinian economic malaise abound, from shanty towns on the outskirts of Buenos Aires to hobos sleeping on dirty mattresses in its downtown. Argentines...

Can We Beat the Bolsheviks?

The Left is the most dangerous ideological phenomenon in the history of mankind. It glorifies poverty, the total state, and mass death. The Left wants to destroy Western civilization, based on Christianity, the traditional family, and the free market. It’s no coincidence that Communists killed more than 100 million people, not including their wars. By the way, young people are not taught about the evils of the Left, only its...

The Censorship of Alternative Media Is Virtual Book Burning

Recent discussions about an executive order that would “help protect” conservatives from bias on social media have brought a bone of contention to the forefront. Are alternative and conservative media actually being censored or are non-mainstream journalists and bloggers just whining? As the owner of a website that is demonstrably facing censorship, I can tell you that from my point of view, we Americans are currently in the...

Lindsey Graham’s Blank Check

Two world wars began because of unconditional pledges made by one country to come to assistance of another. On July 5, 1914, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany pledged his country’s complete support for whatever response Austria-Hungary would choose to make against Serbia after the June 28th assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria by a Serbian nationalist during an official visit to Sarajevo, Bosnia. This fatal error...

Is the NY Times Preparing Us for a Camp of the Saints?

Dean Baquet, the executive editor of the New York Times, told the Times’ employees on August 12 that the Times is refocusing from Russiagate to Trump-the-racist. Moreover, Baquet said, the Times is launching the 1619 Project that will “reframe” or reinvent American history. The purpose is to reduce the explanation of the United States to racism and slavery. What, I wonder, is Baquet going to do when he has to confront the...

Boris Johnson’s Looming Wind Disaster

Boris Johnson’s government is shuffling towards a gigantic cliff edge which has nothing to do with Brexit. The looming disaster can be summed up in one word: renewables. The clue came in the form of the widespread power cuts that Britain experienced at the end of last week. A million people were affected, with rail services disrupted and passengers stuck on trains for many hours. Quickly the Establishment propaganda machine...

Empires Fall From Grace

Years ago, Doug Casey mentioned in a correspondence to me, “Empires fall from grace with alarming speed.” Every now and then, you receive a comment that, although it may have been stated casually, has a lasting effect, as it offers uncommon insight. For me, this was one of those and it’s one that I’ve kept handy at my desk since that time, as a reminder. I’m from a British family, one that left the UK just as the British...
