“The Ideas Made it, But I Didn’t”

In an age of serial mainstream media bias, I highly commend Politico on their fair, articulate analysis of Patrick. J Buchanan. From his early life, to his career in the media, to his time spent in the White House, to his unsuccessful bids for President in the 1990’s, to the influence of Buchananite, populist ideas towards the extraordinary Trump… Continue reading “The Ideas Made it, But I Didn’t”

“Is McCain Hijacking Trump’s Foreign Policy”, Pat Buchanan, March 16, 2017: “The senator from Kentucky,” said John McCain, speaking of his colleague Rand Paul, “is working for Vladimir Putin … and I do not say that lightly.” What did Sen.

It’s Trump’s Party, Now

No longer is the GOP a party of neoconservatives, whose adoration for free trade and new wars eternally triumphed over other concerns. As now establishment Republicans have been won over to Trump’s new nationalistic agenda, with dissenters either non- existent or irrelevant. “It’s Trump’s Party, Now”, Pat Buchanan, March 2, 2017: Before the largest audience of his… Continue reading It’s Trump’s Party, Now

Is a Trump- Putin Detente dead?

“Is a Trump- Putin Detente dead?”, Pat Buchanan, February 20, 2017: Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that he read the nation and the world better than his rivals. He saw the surging power of American nationalism at home, and of ethnonationalism in Europe. And he embraced Brexit. While our bipartisan establishment worships… Continue reading Is a Trump- Putin Detente dead?

Australian Foreign Policy/ Foreign Affairs · The best of Pat Buchanan

Moral Supremacy and Mr. Putin

America, Australia, and all other nations on earth, do not possess histories clean of moral sin. So while we wish for morality to be enforced across the world wherever is possible and should act accordingly, on certain occasions such luxuries cannot be afforded. Likewise, when governments enact democracy crusade foreign policies, such strategies are ineffective, and generally harm the world… Continue reading Moral Supremacy and Mr. Putin

Iran · The best of Pat Buchanan

The future for the Iran deal?

While Iran is a staunch enemy of the West, unnecessary confrontations with this adversary can and should be avoided. This is not to state that Barrack Obama’s insipid weakness towards Iran is desirable. But just as Ronald Reagan once proved, when American strength is expressed in ways alternative to full scale military intervention, this is… Continue reading The future for the Iran deal?

Europe’s Future — Merkel or Le Pen?

In light of the recent terror attack in Berlin, Pat Buchanan smacks the nail square on the head. And should the status quo continue on course, the prospects for Le Pen, Wilders and co will only grow. “Europe’s Future- Merkel or Le Pen”, Pat Buchanan, December 22, 2016: The terrorist who hijacked a truck in… Continue reading Europe’s Future — Merkel or Le Pen?

Lessons of Aleppo — for Trump

An ‘America First’ Trump Trade Policy

A sound argument from Pat Buchanan defending a protectionist trade policy. Perhaps something similar could be pursued here also. “An ‘America First’ Trump Trade Policy”, buchanan.org, November 26, 2016: Donald Trump’s election triumph is among the more astonishing in history. Yet if he wishes to become the father of a new “America First” majority party,… Continue reading An ‘America First’ Trump Trade Policy

Barrack Obama · Ethnonationalism · The best of Pat Buchanan

The role of nationalism

Throughout President Obama’s final swansong urging the world to keep sight of globalist policies, nationalist ideas have been heavily criticized. According to the President, nationalism is to blame for World War Two and virtually every other tragedy in human history. However, the circumstances under which nationalism has been a force for good, should not be overlooked.… Continue reading The role of nationalism

Why the US should dump Duterte

Yet another superb analysis of alliances and US foreign policy written by Pat Buchanan. “Dump Duterte- for Starters”, Pat Buchanan, October 24 2016 Alliances are transmission belts of war.
