What’s Wrong with the Real Right? – part 1

Published by on October 19, 2014

by T.R. Bennington FOR ANY political movement that seeks eventual ascendancy, it is incumbent to engage in regular bouts of self-analysis. As a casual but sympathetic observer of the so-called far-right, I have compiled a list of what I believe to be some of the tactical errors and misconceptions made and held respectively by many […]

The Irrepressible Mencken

Published by on June 13, 2013

by Paul E. Gottfried RECENTLY I’ve been thinking about someone whose name is attached to an organization I’m currently president of, H.L. Mencken (1880-1956). For years I’ve tried to understand why the Baltimore Sage has been branded, mostly recently in The Weekly Standard (see here and here) and in a voluminous biography by Terry Teachout, […]

Whittaker Chambers: Ghosts and Phantoms

Published by on December 11, 2011

by David Chambers WHITTAKER CHAMBERS died 50 years ago at the age of 60. Much in the world has changed since then. What might he think about world affairs today, were he still alive? Before commenting, he would catch up on history with books like Tony Judt‘s Postwar. Another would be Timothy Snyder‘s Bloodlands, which […]

The All Too Real Sexual Frailty of Martin Luther King, Jr.

And why we’re Lucky it didn’t get out at the time by H. Braintree AMERICANS LIKE their saints plastered, which is a problem because reality keeps intruding.

America, 2011: Liberty is Not Safe

Published by on January 12, 2011

by Frank Miele (pictured) H.L. MENCKEN, a famous writer of the first half of the 20th century, is often credited with having said: “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.” So far as I can tell, he never actually said that, which may just give more credit to the validity of […]

2011: A Brave New Dystopia

Published by on January 3, 2011

by Chris Hedges THE TWO GREATEST VISIONS of a future dystopia were George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.” The debate, between those who watched our descent towards corporate totalitarianism, was who was right. Would we be, as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent […]

I Get Called A White Supremacist… Again

Ho Hum, Yawn — and What I Believe by H. Millard I WAS CALLED A WHITE supremacist again recently (and not in a good way) by one of the usual low I.Q. lefties whose mouth is bigger than his brain and who apparently doesn’t understand that words have meanings. Usually I don’t bother with bigots […]

Stem Cells of the Nation: What the Tea Party Will Lose When They Win

Published by Chris R. Morgan on November 3, 2010

by Chris R. Morgan AS THE 2010 mid-term elections approach, it is all but certain that those candidates closely associated with the “tea party” movement will receive support from the public so robust that they might take not one but both houses of Congress. For whatever good that this may do in streamlining how this […]

What is it about the modern so-called conservatives that makes them so bloodthirsty? by Richard Hoste Alternative Right RICHARD SPENCER and Robert Burnham’s Facebook conversation is pretty frightening, but I must say that it pales in comparison to a recent Free Republic thread about Julian Assange.  A commentator recommends the government go after the man’s […]

The New Aristocracy

Published by on May 9, 2010

by Robert Henderson QUIETLY AND almost unobserved, a new aristocracy has been evolving for the past two centuries. This evolution has reached the stage where this elite, like the mediaeval nobility, have sympathy for their own class anywhere and contempt and unconcern for the mass of people everywhere. Their power is increasing by bounds. They […]

    ‘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 […]
