Canada: The Kingston Manifesto

Published by E.C. Ashenden on August 24, 2018

Multiculturalism, globalism, “open borders,” and the dissolution of nations by Peter Goodchild THE CORROSION of Western civilization can be seen in a group of interrelated political events, as exemplified in Canada, my own country: multiculturalism, globalism, “open borders,” the dissolution of nations, my concerns especially since the period of 2008 to 2011, when I was in […]

The Western Contribution to World History

Published by E.C. Ashenden on June 7, 2017

by James C. Russell “I SHALL BEGIN by speaking about our ancestors, since it is only right and proper on such an occasion to pay them the honor of recalling what they did.” Thus wrote Thucydides in his History of the Peloponnesian War1 and so it is fitting to pay tribute to those whose deeds contributed toward […]

National Study: Whites Losing Economically

Published by E.C. Ashenden on April 21, 2010

by J. Gardner and American Mercury staff THE National Longitudinal Study indicates that the impact of Affirmative Action laws and diversity-enhancing public policy is far different from that imagined by most Americans. Instead of being over-represented (which equality advocates often view as something in need of “correction”), European-Americans of both sexes and all IQ groups […]

Proposed Tea Party Plan for America

Published by E.C. Ashenden on April 17, 2010

by Scott Hailey GIVING MORE power to the regime in Washington is exactly the opposite of what we should be doing to bring America back to economic health. Here’s the proposal I’m bringing to the table at Tea Party rallies across the country this week. 1. Reducing regulations is primary, since regulation is what stifles […]

Last Words on Democracy

Published by E.C. Ashenden on April 14, 2010

by H.L. Mencken (1926) I HAVE ALLUDED somewhat vaguely to the merits of democracy. One of them is quite obvious: it is, perhaps, the most charming form of government ever devised by man. The reason is not far to seek. It is based upon propositions that are palpably not true and what is not true, […]

Brilliant “Forces” on Display

Published by E.C. Ashenden on April 13, 2010

New artists question armed forces. The series “FORCES” (by German artists Daniel and Geo Fuchs, exhibiting in Barcelona’s ADN Galería) comes from a research project that brought the artists to question the phenomenon of military and armed forces. It consists in a series of photographs of fighters in unlikely or at least improbable situations: they […]

No One Trusts the FBI

September 26, 2018

No One Trusts the FBI thumbnail

The FBI has always been a tool of political suppression. WHEN THE FBI came out with a report on Hillary Clinton weeks before the 2016 election, Democrats were livid. But so were Republicans… The report said that even though she had committed a crime by negligently using a personal computer for state business, she would not be […]

‘The Choice of Achilles’: John Alan Coey Against the New World Order thumbnail

by T.R. Bennington AS EVER, BUT ESPECIALLY in our present state of civilizational malaise, there is a need for figures with the power to inspire — men who in less confused and cynical times would have been unabashedly described as heroic. One such figure is Corporal John Alan Coey, a young soldier who has perhaps […]

Quarter of Americans Convinced Sun Revolves Around Earth thumbnail

“DOES the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?” If you answered the latter, you’re among a quarter of Americans who also got it wrong, according to a new report by the National Science Foundation. A survey of 2,200 people that was released Friday revealed some alarming truths about […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 16

    August 9, 2018

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 16 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury IS IT POSSIBLE that the Jewish community — namely, the same forces that launched the massive public relations campaign portraying Leo Frank as an innocent victim of “anti-Semitism” — had a hand in murdering him? If not, then why did the Jewish-owned New York Times (the flagship of […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 15 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury WHO LYNCHED Leo Frank? The culpability is often laid at the feet of a “mob” in the popular literature that promotes the Establishment’s narrative of the case. But was it a mob? How many “mobs” consist of the leading citizens of the community? How many “mobs” have as […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 14 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury WAS THERE REALLY an anti-Jewish and anti-Frank “mob atmosphere” at Leo Frank’s trial, as Frank partisans have alleged? If there was, then how did Mrs. Frank get away with calling Prosecutor Dorsey a “Gentile dog” in open court, and then suffer no consequences whatever? Why did such a […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 13 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury THE CRIMINAL ACTS of the Leo Frank forces as they attempted to get a new trial for their client — or invalidate the results of the original trial — are so numerous, so outrageous, so obvious, and so egregious that — once you hear about them in this […]

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury TO HEAR the attacks made on the character of James Conley — a major witness against Leo Frank when Frank was tried for murdering a 13-year-old girl in his employ, Mary Phagan — you could easily be forgiven for assuming that you were hearing a speech from a […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 11 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury ALMOST THE ENTIRE pro-Leo Frank narrative is dependent on one claim: that Prosecutor Hugh Dorsey fabricated James Conley’s story (or edited and embellished a story made up by Conley) and then coached him to deliver it skillfully on the witness stand. If Conley’s story was not fiction, and […]

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury THE “Hang the Jew” hoax — the claim that “anti-Semitic mobs” stood outside the courtroom during the 1913 Atlanta murder trial of Leo Frank, shouting “hang the Jew or we’ll hang you” or the like and thereby intimidating the jury — was demolished during our audio book segment […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 9 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury JEWISH WRITERS on the Leo Frank case have made some astounding claims about the “atmosphere of anti-Semitism” during the trial of B’nai B’rith official Leo Frank for the strangulation sex murder of his 13-year-old employee, Mary Phagan, in 1913 Atlanta. There were, we are told, “anti-Semitic” mobs (yes, […]

    The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man, part 8 thumbnail

    by Philip St. Raymond for The American Mercury THE PROSECUTION in the Leo Frank case never mentioned the word “Jew” until it was brought up by the defense — and lead prosecutor Hugh Dorsey had a long history of friendly relations and close collaboration with Jews throughout his life and career. So the accusation, common today […]
