The Saker Interviews Professor Marandi, by The Saker

The Saker: It is often said that there is an “axis of resistance” which comprises Syrian, Hezbollah, Iran, Russia and China. Sometimes, Venezuela, Cuba or the DPRK are added to this list. Do you believe that there is such an “axis of resistance” and, if yes, how would you characterize the nature of this informal… … Read moreThe Saker Interviews Professor Marandi, by The Saker

Insouciant White People Have No Awareness of the Extent of Their Demonization, by Paul Craig Roberts

“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can… … Read moreInsouciant White People Have No Awareness of the Extent of Their Demonization, by Paul Craig Roberts

What Globalism Did Was to Transfer the US Economy to China, by Paul Craig Roberts

The main problem with the US economy is that globalism has been deconstructing it. The offshoring of US jobs has reduced US manufacturing and industrial capability and associated innovation, research, development, supply chains, consumer purchasing power, and tax base of state and local governments. Corporations have increased short-term profits at the expense of these long-term… … Read moreWhat Globalism Did Was to Transfer the US Economy to China, by Paul Craig Roberts

Forget Gun Control—Knife Crime Is Plaguing U.K. But You Can’t Notice Who’s Responsible!, by John Derbyshire

Race-denialism is all over the Western world—the notion that race itself is a sort of optical illusion; that different races can, after a bit of social engineering, be brought to present the same statistical profiles on all traits; that when they present different profiles the only possible explanation is malice on the part of white… … Read moreForget Gun Control—Knife Crime Is Plaguing U.K. But You Can’t Notice Who’s Responsible!, by John Derbyshire

Manufacturing Mass Fascism Hysteria, by C.J. Hopkins

If the neoliberal ruling classes expect to keep the American masses worked up into a white-eyed hysteria over “fascism” until November 2020, they’re going to need to get some better Nazis. The current Nazis are just not going to cut it. They are neither scary nor Nazi enough. OK, the militia ones look kind of… … Read moreManufacturing Mass Fascism Hysteria, by C.J. Hopkins

When, If Ever, Can We Lay This Burden Down?, by Pat Buchanan

Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America’s longest war. U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, in a war that has cost 2,400 American lives. Following the… … Read moreWhen, If Ever, Can We Lay This Burden Down?, by Pat Buchanan

Nakba II Is Here, by Gilad Atzmon

The Israeli media reported yesterday that the Jewish State is “actively pushing Palestinian emigration from Gaza.” A senior Israeli official confirmed that Jerusalem is looking for other countries to take in Gazans. Times of Israel reported that “Israel is actively promoting the emigration of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, and is working to find other… … Read moreNakba II Is Here, by Gilad Atzmon

Hitler and/or Chomsky on Capitalist Democracy, by Guillaume Durocher

I can think of only one thing which unites Adolf Hitler and Noam Chomsky: a shared contempt for and critique of capitalist mass-media democracy. Concerning Hitler’s speeches, we usually think of rapturous exhortations to his party-comrades. However, the Führer could sometimes strike a more pedagogical note. Such was the case in a December 1940 speech… … Read moreHitler and/or Chomsky on Capitalist Democracy, by Guillaume Durocher

Christian to Death, by Linh Dinh

With its eschatological Bible, the West is constantly haunted by its death and hypothetical rebirth. Its apocalyptic imagination is unmatched. Christianity promises a frightful ending, as in, “Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of… … Read moreChristian to Death, by Linh Dinh

Is White Genocide Possible?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Readers agree that the demonization of white people is unfair and divisive. Many report that they have experienced reverse discrimination, and they expect discrimination against whites, such as the announced anti-white policy of the New York public school system, to worsen as the media’s demonization of white people escalates. A few readers noted that both… … Read moreIs White Genocide Possible?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Are Recessions Inevitable?, by Ron Paul

Stocks fell last week following news that the yield curve on Treasury notes had inverted. This means that a short-term Treasury note was paying higher interest rates than long-term Treasury note. An inverted yield curve is widely seen as a sign of an impending recession. Some economic commentators reacted to the inverted yield curve by… … Read moreAre Recessions Inevitable?, by Ron Paul

American Capitalism Is Based On Plunder, by Paul Craig Roberts

American capitalism is based on plunder. With the continental USA plundered, American capitalism hoped to continue enriching itself by plundering Russia as it did under Yeltsin, carefully including the Russian “Atlanticist Integrationists” in the spoils in order to have support from the liberal, progressive forces in Russia for stripping Russia of its assets. But Putin… … Read moreAmerican Capitalism Is Based On Plunder, by Paul Craig Roberts

“National Conservatism” Is Being Co-Opted. Either We Reclaim It—or the Future Is Separatism, by James Kirkpatrick

I argued for “National Conservatism” in 2014, referring to a specific European tradition that puts the unity and cultural survival of the nation-state first. Put bluntly—the economy exists to serve the nation, not the nation the economy. Of course, I am appalled that the Main Stream Media has finally acknowledged “National Conservatism” at the very… … Read more“National Conservatism” Is Being Co-Opted. Either We Reclaim It—or the Future Is Separatism, by James Kirkpatrick

Race Denier Angela Saini’s Paranoid Personality Disorder, by Lance Welton

I’ve noted recently that there seems to be a certain “type” leading the anti-science, anti-Truth shock troops into battle: Ben van der Merwe, Adam Rutherford, Jess Wade and Susan Goldberg. They are members of ethnic minorities. They are from privileged backgrounds. But despite attendance at superb and usually private schools, they have failed to attend… … Read moreRace Denier Angela Saini’s Paranoid Personality Disorder, by Lance Welton

Conspiracy Theories from the Elders of Zion to Epstein’s Youngsters, by Gilad Atzmon

Following Jeffery Epstein’s alleged suicide last week we have been deluged by a tsunami of narratives that do not adhere to the shifting official reports of his death. Presumably a few of the intimate secrets of the most powerful people on this planet will be buried with Epstein. While it is rational to believe that… … Read moreConspiracy Theories from the Elders of Zion to Epstein’s Youngsters, by Gilad Atzmon

Is White Genocide in Our Future?, by Paul Craig Roberts

“The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity. And, the twisted young male who goes on a public shooting spree fits a certain kind of media narrative. But when we actually study the mass shootings that took place in 2019,… … Read moreIs White Genocide in Our Future?, by Paul Craig Roberts

A San Francisco Every Month, by Godfree Roberts

San Franciscans unable to afford the $3,600 monthly rental for a one bedroom apartment sleep in the streets and, like most world cities Beijing recently faced a similar problem. Twenty-three million prosperous Beijingers wanted meals from local restaurants but the quarter-million migrant workers who delivered them could not afford the city’s eye-watering rents. Resourcefully, they… … Read moreA San Francisco Every Month, by Godfree Roberts

The Root Cause of Mass Shootings Is the Rage of Alienation, by Ted Rall

Mass shootings prompt simple explanations of the gunman’s motivation. At Columbine High School in Colorado, the killers supposedly snapped after being bullied. The guy who shot up a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, was wild-eyed, carrot-topped nuts. After a massacre at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, an anti-immigrant manifesto posted online pointed to right-wing… … Read moreThe Root Cause of Mass Shootings Is the Rage of Alienation, by Ted Rall

“White Supremacy”—the “Devil Term” Invented to Dispossess Americans, by F. Roger Devlin

See, earlier, by John Derbyshire: “Racism” (The Word) Becoming Obsolete Because Of Racism—Anti-White, That Is Founding stock Americans are now perilously close to becoming a powerless minority ruled over by aliens who cherish a carefully cultivated resentment—not to say hatred—towards us. If nothing is done to change the trajectory in which our society is moving,… … Read more“White Supremacy”—the “Devil Term” Invented to Dispossess Americans, by F. Roger Devlin

The Cathedral Redux: Michael Malice’s the NEW RIGHT Underestimates How Trump’s Election Has Actually Strengthened the Left—for Now, by James Kirkpatrick

Michael Malice’s book The New Right is interesting but he’s fundamentally wrong about the Trump presidency’s impact on American politics. “In my view, the salient thing about the Trump presidency is how he has mainstreamed several formerly marginalized strands of right-wing thought and behavior,” he writes. Yet the Republican Establishment has largely co-opted Trump. Main… … Read moreThe Cathedral Redux: Michael Malice’s the NEW RIGHT Underestimates How Trump’s Election Has Actually Strengthened the Left—for Now, by James Kirkpatrick

Ukie Nationalism vs Otto von Bismarck, by The Saker

When Zelenskii came to power, there were two fundamental options he could have chosen. These options were, roughly: Option one or pragmatism above ideology: to make a determined effort to address Ukraine’s most urgent problems. At the very least, Zelenskii could have ordered his forces to stop firing and have them withdraw to a safe… … Read moreUkie Nationalism vs Otto von Bismarck, by The Saker

Color-Coded Theory of Crime and Suicide, by Ilana Mercer

A CNN profiler was speaking about the El Paso shooting, on August 6, in which 22 people were murdered by an angry white man. She blamed the killer’s sense of white privilege. Mass murder carried out by white, young men, the “analyst” was saying, occurs because these young men cannot adjust to a changing society…. … Read moreColor-Coded Theory of Crime and Suicide, by Ilana Mercer

President Nixon’s Accomplishments in Protecting the Environment Are Being Destroyed by the Trump Regime, by Paul Craig Roberts

Two days ago I wrote about how our allegedly full employment economy’s need for jobs had caused the Trump regime to overule the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and permit extractive companies to destroy protected lands ( https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/08/13/gold-over-life-literally/ ).

The Supremacy of Stupid, by Tobias Langdon

An ant is an amazing creature, a marvel of miniaturization and compressed complexity. With only a tiny brain, it absorbs and interprets a flood of data from its myriad sense-organs, navigating a complex and constantly changing world, co-operating and communicating with its nest-mates, collaborating in prodigies of architecture, engineering and logistics. No human robot can… … Read moreThe Supremacy of Stupid, by Tobias Langdon

The Uniqueness of the Finnish Race, by Guillaume Durocher

The European peoples have long thought and felt that each of them was unique, reflecting the particularly history and struggles the successive generations of their ancestors. The cultural differences of European nations have long been known, but today, genetic science is also able to quantify just how unique each nation is from a biological point… … Read moreThe Uniqueness of the Finnish Race, by Guillaume Durocher

The Shootings, the Stats, and the Violent War Against the Deplorables, by Boyd D. Cathey

To listen to almost all the reporters on Fox News—and most of the Establishment Media experts—after the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, you would have thought that President Donald Trump needed to do exactly what the Reverend Jimmy Swaggart did back a few years ago: get on TV and cry and bawl, and… … Read moreThe Shootings, the Stats, and the Violent War Against the Deplorables, by Boyd D. Cathey

China, Not Russia, the Greater Threat, by Pat Buchanan

Ten weeks of protests, some huge, a few violent, culminated Monday with a shutdown of the Hong Kong airport. Ominously, Beijing described the violent weekend demonstrations as “deranged” acts that are “the first signs of terrorism,” and vowed a merciless crackdown on the perpetrators. China is being pushed toward a decision it does not want… … Read moreChina, Not Russia, the Greater Threat, by Pat Buchanan

U.S. Supreme Over Asia in Mathematics!, by Fred Reed

America again wins the annual International Math Olympiad! The contest pits the brightest high-school students of countries against each other in six-member teams. The American victories continue the mastery by the European cultures that invented most of modern math. This supports the claim (I hope I do not sound racist) that European superiority is genetic…. … Read moreU.S. Supreme Over Asia in Mathematics!, by Fred Reed

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, by Philip Giraldi

It is astonishing that in the wake of the two mass killings in Dayton and El Paso that have been attributed both by the media and the Democrats to “racism,” a senior U.S. Congressman has led a delegation of 41 of his Democratic Party colleagues plus spouses on a week-long luxury all-expenses-paid trip to Israel,… … Read moreMajority Leader Steny Hoyer, by Philip Giraldi

“Gold Over Life, Literally”, by Paul Craig Roberts

The decision by Alaska’s governor Mike Dunleavy and US president Donald Trump to sacrifice the environment for a gold mine is an extremely bad one, but I understand why it has happened. The offshoring of Americans’ jobs to Mexico and Asia has put millions of Americans into a situation in which their livelihood is not… … Read more“Gold Over Life, Literally”, by Paul Craig Roberts

“Hook It Up”: My Personal Disenchantment with the Narrative of Black Victimhood, by Nicolás Palacios Navarro

Roth, Dylan and the Nobel Prize, by Gilad Atzmon

schrub says: I recently heard a rather revealing story about Phillip Roth. In or 2015 or 2016 the committee that was to chose the winner of the Nobel Prize for literature came under intense pressure to award the prize to the then-ailing Roth since Nobel Prizes cannot be awarded after a recipient’s death. Besides the… … Read moreRoth, Dylan and the Nobel Prize, by Gilad Atzmon

Hidden Hands in the Middle East, by Charlie O’Neill

The Western public has been so poorly served, in recent years, by its supposed world-class media organisations that any semblance of a coherent narrative explaining world events and tying together their deeper, underlying, causes to one another, has almost completely disappeared from the programming of the major networks. More often than not, international affairs are… … Read moreHidden Hands in the Middle East, by Charlie O’Neill

Endgame for the Fed?, by Ron Paul

The Federal Reserve, responding to concerns about the economy and the stock market, and perhaps to criticisms by President Trump, recently changed course on interest rates by cutting its “benchmark” rate from 2.25 percent to two percent. President Trump responded to the cut in already historically-low rates by attacking the Fed for not committing to… … Read moreEndgame for the Fed?, by Ron Paul
