Mickey Kaus Quits

My personal role-model, Democratic Senate candidate and influential blogger Mickey Kaus, is out of a job after The Daily Caller pulls a piece critical of Fox News and its neo-con wardrumming as a distraction from America’s threat from rampant immigration.  Hat-tip Vox Day: The blogger Mickey Kaus has quit his job at The Daily Caller […]

BigGaySteve writes . . . .

At Vox Day, commenter BigGaySteve mimics a famous refrain to hilarious effect in response to Jeffrey Goldberg’s piece on the diaspora of European Jews back to Israel: First they came for the Jews, I didn’t say anything because I was not a Jew Then they came for the Blacks, I didn’t say anything because I […]

Barack Obama chastises us about the Crusades and the Inquisition

Hat-tip The Thinking Housewife: the Golf Cart Caligula gives us reasons to be humble: And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim […]

“Feminist Music”

Hat-tip Dalrock, for this entry from Mr. Cool, Paul Joseph Watson, concerning “feminist music”.  Put down the coffee before you watch: And now, for the sake of my ears and sanity, and also in homage to the GBFM(TM), I’m going to go listen to Beethoven’s Third Symphony.

I’m not familiar with this guy’s work, but this video is a neat introductory summation of various manosphere themes, recited by an intense English guy in front of a world map: –And how can I not tip my hat to a guy who talks manosphere themes in front of a world map? In fact, this […]

flu vaccine Bloomberg msnbc jan 14 2015

In case you ever doubted the “flu vaccine” was a crock

We now learn that: This year’s flu vaccine is only 23 percent effective, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That figure is on the low side of effectiveness for flu vaccines, and confirms earlier speculation among public health officials that this season’s vaccine was a poor match for […]

Three Great Monotheisms: But One Has No Home

They’re all basically the same, right?  I mean: I.  Make fun of Christians– win an arts grant. II.  Make fun of Jews– lose your job. III. Make fun of Muslims– lose your life. The shows of ‘solidarity’ for “Charlie Hebdo” (and yes, I think it’s a stupid name and I still don’t know what it […]

“At the train station, I heard one schoolgirl telling her friends that World War III has started and she doesn’t care if anyone calls her racist”

–writes Vox Day: What has been ruled out of bounds for more than three decades is finally becoming the political fault line. And the line is not going to be drawn in the favor of those with blood on their hands, in the favor of those whom history will one day damn far more fervently […]

Ann Althouse: “Massacre” is the right word

Ann Althouse on the terror attack: I think “massacre” is the right word here, not “mass murder.” It should be recognized as a military operation — France is under attack — not some individuals who lost their mind or their temper and transgressed into the everyday evil we call murder. –The link Ann embeds in […]

“Of Christian Descent”

Fernand Braudel writes: Western Christianity was and remains the main constituent element in European thought– including rationalist thought, which although it attacked Christianity was also derivative from it.  Throughout the history of the West, Christianity has been at the heart of the civilization it inspires, even when it has allowed itself to be captured or […]

Silicon Valley and the Diversity Racket

At The Unz Review, Steve Sailer considers the implications (kabuki-style or otherwise) of “civil rights” agitators bringing “diversity” to the cognitively-challenging world of Silicon Valley.  This is one of Steve’s neat quote-and-reply posts, with some sharp ripostes, particularly at the expense of one of Steve’s best archetypal foils, the nepotistic sinecure-hire (Jewish, natch) who bitches […]

Titus Didius Tacitus writes

John Adams said: “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” Nothing like that exists […]

The most dangerous figure in American history

The combination of Obama’s radical, nation-remaking agenda, his calm, collected personality, his effortless and infinite capacity for lying, and the worshipful attitude many people have toward him, makes him the most dangerous figure in American history. —Wrote Lawerence Auster in January 2009. Obama proposes unconstitutional executive action to anoint with citizenship myriads of criminal indigent […]

Desert Storm TV

Discussing a Roger Simon neocon splitter-splutter opinion piece over at Vox Popoli, commenter Nate wonders: I wonder what percentage of neocons are neocons based solely on the extreme entertainment value of Desert Storm TV in 1991. Commenter Josh replies: Desert storm was Peak America. In retrospect, it was also the worst thing that could have […]

Rich Lowry suddenly talks like an honest to God conservative

Unironic title!  From breitbart (internal links their own): Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, denounced Republican elites and their high-priced consultants in the permanent political class for pushing amnesty legislation by perpetuating the myth that there are so many jobs that American workers won’t do.  “The next time I hear a Republican strategist or a […]

Immigration Insanity

Immigration “news” is so nuts, it cannot be satirized.  Nor does it avail, it seems,  to cast a  vote, or write to Congress, or to your newspaper.  The United States, the world’s third most populous country, struggling in its transition to a supposed “post-industrial economy” and leaving even its most educated native citizens behind as wages sink in a race […]

Single Mom: “Conservatives Are Stupid”

Vox Day commenter Cranberry writes: I overheard two people talking at the gym the other day. One is a divorced 30-ish mom, the other a seasoned old veteran of two wars. The mom was saying something about how the immigration issue was disgusting and she couldn’t see why people shouldn’t be allowed here, no matter […]

“If Nixon was a Democrat in office today, the New York Times would run a front page, above-the-fold story on #YesAllWomen heroine Rosemary Woods and the patriarchal, cisnormative assault on her secretarial skills.”

Can you smell the Pulitzer? –asks Kurt Schlichter in a devastating little piece from the usually rather lowbrow Townhall.  The quoted hypothetical is simply, literally too true. It’s become evident that rule of law is just about over in the United States of America.  If the GOP won’t take the Eric Cantor defeat as a […]

Hail Jesus! and thank you, Mickey Kaus!

The traitorous son of a b*tch Eric Cantor, Quisling Prince of RINOs, lost his primary.  Patriots, populists, immigration realists, take heart:  the Chamber of Commerce is not the ordained minister of our fate.  Jewish globalists can be made to answer.  Common sense still has appeal.  And not all Republicans want to be buttboys for the […]

Europe Tosses in Slumber

Did you know croissants were made to be eaten in mockery of Islam?  They’re crescents, and you eat them.  This started, it seems, in Spain, in the days when the Infidels reigned in Andalusia, before they were driven out and Spain, purified, spread its empire across the world. Maybe I can eat a Pepperidge Farms Brussels cookie in […]

Rationalizing Big Government and Big Debt

From Timothy Taylor’s The Instant Econimist: What are the trends in overall federal spending over time?  First of all, as a share of GDP, federal spending hasn’t shown any upward trend over recent decades.  Back in the early 1960s, federal spending ranged from about 19 to 22 percent of GDP.  It was a little higher […]

“So I’m racist because I don’t want illegal immigrants invading our country even if it is for jobs? Okay then, I’m a racist by your definition. Now what?”

–asks commenter orlfla at kausfiles, as part of a lively discussion in the trail of another fine piece.  I second his question, and, on his behalf, offer a further refinement, if needed, which I think s/he would agree to:  making them “legal” through amnesty doesn’t mean they belong here, either. Kaus reports on the Virginia […]

Ann Coulter puts the smackdown on Sheldon

I guess we still have a First Amendment after all, since it gets a workout when Ann Coulter takes on the nefarious neocon Jewish billionaire by the ludicrous yet infamous name of Sheldon Adelson for his immigration hypocrisies, rent-seeking, and treasonous exploitation of his adopted “country”, the United States of America.  Cue the “anti-Sheeeeeemmetizzzmmm!” outrage.   I […]

An isteve commenter impersonates Jesse Jackson

I have a long strange subjective “story” about Jesse Jackson– and by “subjective” I mean it all took place in my head (when I was a kid), so this Steve Sailer anonymous reader’s take, in which he imagines the Rev. Jackson taking on the Left’s unfettered immigration policy, intrigues and amuses me: No one wants […]

The Battle for Ukraine, and the soul of the West

The nightmare in the Ukraine continues– and it’s my nightmare too.  Many a night I literally toss in my sleep, afflicted with half-waking dreams about the sinister sequence of mysterious and violent events that have overthrown the people’s peace, and challenged the sovereign rights not only of the Ukrainians, but the Crimean and Russian peoples–yes, […]

The Commanders

Well, I recognize Scowcroft, Cheney, Quayle, Sununu, Baker, Powell, and the President right off– but who’s the mystery man at Scowcroft’s left?  Probably I should know this. George H. W. Bush was my high school President, and as such, the only American President I’ve admired and followed in his own time. ** Probably I knew more […]

Nixon: now, more than ever

H/t Gucci Little Piggy, who links to this slate liberal Tanner Colby’s  lament over the failures of Affirmative Action (which is just not doing enough!), in which Colby gives this horrifying portrait of Richard Nixon’s “racism”: That Richard Nixon was racist is well beyond dispute—he believed that, moral objections to abortion aside, the practice was justified […]

What “nation”?: Of Coke and Country

A “nation”, as defined by the Concise Oxford American Dictionary:  a large aggregate of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory. Well, Americans don’t have “common descent” or a common culture.  We don’t really teach our own history anymore, or at any rate we don’t celebrate it, […]

Too boring for her to go through the trouble in real time, but Ann Althouse has a nice ten-point compendium the morning after: 1. Most memorable line: “Are you going to have sex with me or do I have to rape you?” That’s a paraphrase. Let me get the actual quote from the text. Obama […]

“Prostitutes” vs “sex workers”; Liberalism and Communism

I was rambling through the archives of the late great Lawrence Auster, looking for something else, but I chanced across this, an entry I’d never looked at before or, if I had, taken no special note of.  But Larry concluded with a wonderful brief note, wittily Horatian in its curious and charming chivalry even as […]

“An Empty Machine”: Conditional Optimism from Roger Simon

I have no idea if Republicans will end their circular firing squad and unite sufficiently to right our country, but one thing seems abundantly clear from the events of the last weeks, including Tuesday’s election in which Terry McAuliffe barely eked out a victory over the unexciting Ken Cuccinelli. Liberalism in our country is in […]

Vox Day commenter Jack Amok gives a very good answer to what conservatives mean when they lament the GOP is the “party of stupid”: Incompetent electoral strategy.  The Hispanic thing is an example, they didn’t seem to understand immigrant voting patterns (almost always pro-socialist), lower class voting patters (almost always pro-socialist), or Mexican (as in […]

The Affordable Care Act proposes to make health insurance affordable to millions of low-income […]

Philosophically, I am a strict anti-Hobbesian.  I am a Platonic Realist.  Are there rules in this universe?  Yes.
