The invasion of the Capitol on 6 January now stands alongside 9/11 as an act of war against American democracy. Unsurprisingly, news coverage of the incursion has come to resemble war propaganda. All facts, true or false, are pointed in the same direction with the aim of demonising the enemy and anybody who minimises its... Read More
"Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun." So said Citizen Trump Saturday on his acquittal by the Senate of the impeachment article of "incitement of insurrection" in the Jan 6 invasion of the Capitol. "I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness... Read More
Last week’s second impeachment trial of former President Trump should serve as a warning that something is very wrong in US politics. Far from a measured, well-investigated, rock-solid case against the former president, America was again abused with day after day of character assassination, innuendo, false claims, and even falsified “evidence.” The trial wasn’t intended...

The Democrats approached the impeachment with the same cockiness that they approach everything. They thought they'd stomp their feet and run around with their hair on fire, and eventually people would see the righteousness of their cause. But it didn't go down like that. Instead, the Trump defense team opened a can of whoop ass... Read More
Democrats Reject America and All Standards of Truth
We can observe the disintegration of the United States in the Democrats’ 1930s-style Stalinist Show Trial of Donald Trump. Republicans provided the Senate with video proof that Democrats responded to their 2016 defeat with insurrectionist language whereas Trump did not respond to the stolen 2020 election with insurrectionist language. But in the Democrats’ Show Trial... Read More
The inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is a symbolic referendum on the identity of America, with neoliberal elites arrogantly viewing Biden’s election as a mandate for a new America that is less White and Christian and has a woke internationalist value system. This vision is in stark contrast with the vision that originally... Read More
AXIOS article by Mike Allen, Jim VandeHei: Republicans, long reliant on big business and the rich, see a post-Trump future centered on working class white, Hispanic and Black voters, top GOP officials tell Axios. Why it matters: This is a substantial shift, born of necessity and the post-Trump reality. It would push Republicans further away... Read More
It has been a dreadful three months for the Grand Old Party. On Nov. 3, President Donald Trump seemed to have lost the White House by narrowly losing three crucial blue states he had won in 2016 -- Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania -- and Georgia and Arizona as well. Trump immediately mounted an acrimonious two-month... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Reading my New York Post, I caught this little news item from the nearby metropolis: A 72-year-old guy just getting off a subway train in Midtown was knocked to the ground by an assailant unknown to him: The perp was of course black. As... Read More
The defining difference between Democrats and Republicans is this: Republicans live on their political knees. They apologize and expiate for their principles, which are generally not unsound. Democrats, conversely and admirably, stand tall for their core beliefs, as repugnant as these mostly are. The Left most certainly didn’t rush forward to condemn the Black Lives... Read More

How Our Lying Press Would Have Spun Jan 6 Protest If Trump Were A Democrat
Video and narration by Noah Arnold. See it, and more, on VDARE-TV. VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow was not at the January 6 Patriot protests at the U.S. Capitol, just as he was not at the 2017 Charlottesville Unite The Right Rally (although PayPal cut VDARE.com off anyway). But afterwards, on January 15, he tweeted: He... Read More
To Parliament, in the London of George III, the Boston Massacre of 1770 and the Tea Party of 1773 were not seen in the same light as they were by the Sons of Liberty in the Massachusetts colony. To Parliament, this was mob violence, and the shooting and killing at Lexington and Concord were acts... Read More
Global Research is an internationally read website that seeks truth and, thus, permits writers to hold the United States government accountable. The website’s assessment of President Trump has not been very accurate as Global Research tends to regard successive US presidents as tools of the military/security complex, Israel, and other powerful interest groups that punish...

The 2020 election was the freest and fairest in human history. That’s an article of faith you must repeat to avoid the dreaded label of “domestic terrorist.” Doubts about the election threaten our democracy and cannot be allowed. Most readers have been barraged with this message since November. But now a new message is emitting... Read More

If you enjoyed the Global War on Terror, you’re going to love the new War on Domestic Terror! It’s just like the original Global War on Terror, except that this time the “Terrorists” are all “Domestic Violent Extremists” (“DVEs”), “Homegrown Violent Extremists” (“HVEs”), “Violent Conspiracy-Theorist Extremists” (“VCTEs”), “Violent Reality Denialist Extremists” (VRDEs”), “Insurrectionary Micro-Aggressionist Extremists”...

The official narrative that there was no election theft is likely the largest lie ever perpetrated on the world. The lie is so vast and so fragile that everyone who disagrees with the official narrative is suppressed, deplatformed, kicked off social media, ostracized, and fired from their job in order to protect the lie from...

The Senate trial for now twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is set to begin this week, with little doubt over the outcome. A procedural vote in the Senate on the constitutionality of “removing from office” someone who is not in office revealed that nowhere near enough Republicans were willing to join their Democrat counterparts in...

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] A leading candidate for the title Truer Words Were Never Said is surely T.S. Eliot's observation that, If you want a set, that quote pairs off nicely with science fiction writer and occasional LSD user Philip K. Dick's observation in a speech he gave... Read More

With Trump out of office, now would be a good time to critically re-examine one of the most remarkable, and ultimately problematic, features of his time as President — the extravagant support he enjoyed from evangelical Christians and the resurgence of Christian Zionism. Back in November, I linked Trump’s popularity among Red State Christians to... Read More
I’m not even sure one can still speak freely about theoretical matters. Nevertheless, against the background din of “insurrection” charges against MAGA America, I’ve tried to distill the hardcore libertarian take regarding the storming of the Capitol Building, on January 6, in a brief YouTube clip. It is very plainly this: Principled libertarians will distinguish... Read More
"Never allow a good crisis (to) go to waste. It's an opportunity to do the things you once thought were impossible." Thus did chief of staff Rahm Emanuel advise Barack Obama on the financial crisis he inherited in 2009. Following the Capitol riot by a mob of pro-Donald Trump protesters, the left took Rahm's counsel,... Read More
The Department of Homeland Security issued on Wednesday a nationwide terror alert lasting until April 30. The alert warns of potential terrorist attacks from Americans who are “ideologically motivated” and have “objections to the exercise of government authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives.” The language used...

The Military Lockdown of Washington DC
The rhetoric of these people was revolutionary: there was talk of “crossing the Rubicon.” A crowd chanted “Hang Mike Pence.” Somebody erected makeshift gallows. Some grandiosely claimed, “The storm is coming,” while Alex Jones promised that “1776 will commence again.” In a similar vein Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert controversially tweeted “Today is 1776” while events...

The Regime on the Potomac has begun its campaign of repression. Media hysterics about “insurrectionists” and a vague Department of Homeland security bulletin about terrorism created an artificial crisis. Figures in the new Administration are eager to use state power against “racists,” even while they tolerate real crime. Add to this the concepts of “restorative... Read More
As soon as the Senate received the lone article of impeachment accusing President Donald Trump of "incitement of insurrection" in the Jan. 6 mob assault on the Capitol, Rand Paul rose to object. The Senate, he said, has no right to try a private citizen, which Trump now is. Thus, what we are about to... Read More
When I was a university student, the liberals’ motto was a quote attributed to Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The liberals used this quote as permission to deconstruct the family, society, religion, and the belief system that held the diverse American...

What makes the current state of war against “terrorism” so dangerous is that the national security apparatus has...
President Joe Biden has already made it clear that legislation that will be used to combat what he refers to as “domestic terrorism” will be a top priority. That means that his inaugural speech pledge to be the president for “all Americans” appears to apply except for those who don’t agree with him. Former Barack... Read More
The FBI and a grandstanding acting US attorney, Michael Sherwin, are after Trump supporters. The FBI has arrested 150 people for their alleged role in the alleged “Capitol riot.” The fact that there was no Capitol riot doesn’t matter. No facts matter. This is a shut-down-all-opposition-to-The Establishment operation. Sherwin is doing his best to concoct... Read More
When Uncle Sam threatens some blighted and benighted region of the world—ostensibly on behalf of the American People and for their own good—our representatives call it peace through strength. It is then that ordinary Americans are encouraged to pipe up in praise of the State’s invariably Orwellian peace-through-strength strategies. Peace through strength on our front... Read More

The Trump experiment is over, and the strange journey that the last five years have been is now at an end. There are already lots of assessments being made about the meaning of Trump’s presidency, but most of them are from either liberal or conservative viewpoints. It also needs to be evaluated from the viewpoint... Read More

At 78, after a prolonged illness and without recovering consciousness, Joe Biden succumbed to the Presidency. The last hopes of the last QAnon believers vanished like smoke in the night, with Biden assuming the mighty US throne. This is truly a dark day for America and for the world, as the US example will be... Read More

Another disgraceful performance from “Israel’s president”
One keeps hearing that former President Donald Trump will be judged well by the history books because he was the only American head of state in recent memory who did not start any new wars. Well, the claim is itself questionable as Jimmy Carter, for all his faults, managed to avoid entering into any new... Read More

The Trump presidency is over. But whether you loved him, despised him, admired him, or merely tolerated him, there is one thing he did for America that makes him the most important figure in modern American history: He exposed the farce that America is a healthy, functioning democracy. Trump has shown Americans, without meaning to,... Read More

As they used to say at the end of all those wacky Looney Tunes cartoons, that’s all folks! The show is over. Literal Russian-Asset Hitler, the Latest Greatest Threat to Western Democracy, the Monster of Mar-a-Lago, Trumpzilla, Trumpenstein, the Ayatollah of Orange Shinola, has finally been humiliated and given the bum-rush out of Washington by...

It did not take long for the Lie Machine, aka American media, to create the false news and fake narrative of the “storming of the US Capitol” on January 6 by a “white supremacist insurrection.” Here is an example from Bloomberg Weekend Reading on January 23, 2021: “The scenes from the first day of Joe...

I was always worried when I had to enter the Green Zone in Baghdad at a time when its entrances were under frequent attack by suicide bombers driving vehicles filled with explosives. Being blown up by al-Qaeda in Iraq was not the only danger. The soldiers guarding the outer checkpoints of the zone were understandably... Read More
"We have met the enemy and he is us," said Walt Kelly's cartoon character Pogo, half a century ago, about what we Americans were doing to our environment. Rereading President Joe Biden's inaugural address, Pogo's remark comes to mind. Biden began on a lofty, hopeful and familiar note: "This is a great nation. We are... Read More
From mainstream left to mainstream right, the media deluge of Donald Trump postmortems share the assumption that 45 represented a departure, deviation or innovation from the comportment and policies of previous American heads of state. True, he was the first man elected president without political or military experience. And as I have previously observed, the... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: A Long Farewell To Donald Trump, Immigration Patriot. And Thanks.

Trump, Self-Styled “King of Israel,” Has Failed to Save America from Democrats and Pedophiles…Will His Cult Followers Keep Making Excuses? In the year 1666 the whole Jewish world went crazy. A manic-depressive madman named Sabbatai Zevi, aided by his loquacious PR flack, Nathan of Gaza, had declared himself the Messiah. History hadn’t been kind to... Read More
Hardcore libertarians differentiate between pro-Trump patriots and Black Lives Matter detritus. BLM rioters trashed, looted and leveled their countrymen’s private property, their businesses. Democratic stormtroopers harassed their fellow Americans—meek men and women in eateries, in shopping malls, in the inner sanctum of their homes—often forcing innocents to kneel or recite repulsive, self-incriminating racial catechisms. These... Read More

Donald Trump is gone. No storm broke. No reckoning came. There was no plan. In his place, a career politician assumed the presidency. Joe Biden muttered some platitudes. Most people have already forgotten them, probably including Joe Biden. We’re told the inauguration was historic and dramatic. It was banal and boring. It celebrated mediocrity. It... Read More

Today it appears that the triumph of our adversaries is total. I want to post this column saying that I don’t believe for one second that this is true. All I want to do today is explain why. Thus, just to make clear to those alternatively gifted, this is not a comprehensive analysis and I... Read More

By 8 January 2021, Mitch McConnell had determined he would not permit the Senate to try Trump until 19 January 2021 or later. He ruled that the Senate could not convene for special session unless all 100 Senators formally agreed; he maintained that ruling consistently, through 19 January 2021. By 10 January 2021, House majority... Read More

The season opening of the Joe and Kammy Regime Change Show could not be a more appropriate roomful of mirrors reflecting the self-described US “political elite”. During the 2000s, I came face to face with Baghdad’s Green Zone multiple times. I always stayed, and worked, in the hyper-volatile Red Zone – as you may check... Read More
Hear me out and you will understand the title. There is a difference between a rebellion and a revolution. A rebellion is what occurred in the thirteen colonies in the late 18th century. A revolution is what occurred in Russia in 1917. A rebellion occurred in the colonies, because the subjects of the king in... Read More
