The truth about ‘separating families’

Recent days have seen a renewed wave of media propagandising on US illegal immigration, in a similar manner to late 2015 inferences, which linked the flow of Muslim refugees to an upcoming holocaust-styled genocide (which unsurprisingly, never came to fruition). But as the altruistic West is tormented with emotional blackmail to not ‘separate families’, we… Continue reading The truth about ‘separating families’

America lurches closer to a new war in Syria

After President Trump accused ‘Animal Assad’ of committing another chemical weapons attack, a fresh media clamour for Western intervention in Syria began. But is the President falling for another false flag? One year ago President Assad was universally condemned for his alleged chemical weapons attack, and President Trump responded by launching 57 symbolic cruiser missile… Continue reading America lurches closer to a new war in Syria

Is Trump Assembling a War Cabinet?

By Pat Buchanan, March 27, 2018: The last man standing between the U.S. and war with Iran may be a four-star general affectionately known to his Marines as “Mad Dog.” Gen. James Mattis, the secretary of defense, appears to be the last man in the Situation Room who believes the Iran nuclear deal may be… Continue reading Is Trump Assembling a War Cabinet?

The Eternal Lure of Nationalism

By Pat Buchanan, February 26, 2018: In a surprise overtime victory in the finals of the Olympic men’s hockey tournament, the Russians defeated Germany, 4-3. But the Russians were not permitted to have their national anthem played or flag raised, due to a past doping scandal. So, the team ignored the prohibition and sang out… Continue reading The Eternal Lure of Nationalism

Economic nationalism works

Scoffing at the concept of an America First President, President Obama once publicly ridiculed then candidate Trump in asking: ‘What magic wand do you have?’ Since then President Obama and his legacy has been turfed out, in place of a new nationalist order which places American workers and economic concerns first. In fairness to the… Continue reading Economic nationalism works

A US-Turkish Clash in Syria?

By Patrick J. Buchanan, January 18, 2018: The war for dominance in the Middle East, following the crushing of ISIS, appears about to commence in Syria — with NATO allies America and Turkey on opposing sides. Turkey is moving armor and troops south to Syria’s border enclave of Afrin, occupied by Kurds, to drive them… Continue reading A US-Turkish Clash in Syria?

The implications of Shitholegate

President Trump recently caused a furore by allegedly referring to Haiti and African countries as ‘shitholes.’ But despite media condemnations/ obfuscations in both Left and Right wing media circles, is he wrong? I can hardly imagine these critics would voluntarily trade in their cosy Western life for Haiti. And for all the celebrities who swore they would leave the United… Continue reading The implications of Shitholegate

An America First approach to TPS

The Trump administration recently announced it was ending the 16 year long temporary protected status (TPS), provided to some 200 000 El Salvadoran migrants. Evidently, this stance fits the ‘America First’ theme President Trump was elected on, given a reduction in low skilled immigrants will ultimately increase wages for working class Americans. And with America… Continue reading An America First approach to TPS

America’s forever war

America’s quarter century role in Iraq can truly be described as a ‘forever war’. As throughout this period, perceived threats stemming from Iraq were met with overwhelming military force, costing 4500 American lives, $7.9 trillion dollars, and untold damage to US soft power. But perhaps even worse than these extraordinary sacrifices, is that Iraq has… Continue reading America’s forever war

Who Wants War with Iran — and Why?

Pat Buchanan, December 20, 2017: In the run-up to Christmas, President Donald Trump has been the beneficiary of some surprisingly good news and glad tidings. Sunday, Vladimir Putin called to thank him and the CIA for providing Russia critical information that helped abort an ISIS plot to massacre visitors to Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg.… Continue reading Who Wants War with Iran — and Why?

Encouraging signs in America- Russia relations

In 2016, then- candidate Donald Trump railed against pointless overseas ventures, and sought to warm relations between America and Russia. And for promoting peace, President Trump was then accused of ‘colluding’ with Vladimir Putin on the campaign trail, in an allegedly grand act of treason. Since then, collusion delusion proponents have largely won out, in… Continue reading Encouraging signs in America- Russia relations

Ann Coulter on Roy Moore’s defeat

“Why I Secretly Wanted Moore To Lose: Brooks 2020,” by Ann Coulter, December 13, 2017: Rep. Mo Brooks was the true Trumpian candidate in Alabama, which is why I endorsed him in the primary (here, here and here). When the accusations against Roy Moore first arose, I proposed that the president make a deal to replace Moore with Brooks. Obviously,… Continue reading Ann Coulter on Roy Moore’s defeat

Donald Trump and Eminem

Similarities between the early 2000’s Eminem, and the 2016/17 Donald Trump, are undeniable. The rebellious, anti- establishment, decidedly provocative nature of both figures certainly drew me in, as I supported Donald Trump’s run for President, and I enjoy Eminem’s older music. Sure differences between the two are obvious, but Eminem and Donald Trump’s success was… Continue reading Donald Trump and Eminem

Surging Radicalism on the American Left

We sometimes laugh, mock or dismiss Leftist talking points at this blog. But this shouldn’t distract from the serious, pervasive strains of radicalism that are increasingly dominating the modern Left. Now, say what you like about folks on the extreme end of the ‘Right’ spectrum, in the alt- Right. There’s certainly ample room for scrutiny.… Continue reading Surging Radicalism on the American Left

Is Trump the Heir to Reagan?

Pat Buchanan, October 12, 2017: Three decades ago, as communications director in the White House, I set up an interview for Bill Rusher of National Review. Among his first questions to President Reagan was to ask him to assess the political importance of Barry Goldwater. Said Reagan, “I guess you could call him the John… Continue reading Is Trump the Heir to Reagan?
