Why the presidential election matters

Amid the extraordinary week that has been, the history books have not yet been written as to which way this presidential election will go, a precarious situation which may persist for months to come. Not all is uncertain, though, it being clear (and perhaps trite) to say the outcome from this presidential election matters. The… Continue reading Why the presidential election matters

Free trade revisited

Further to my critique in July, it is proper to refute some of the key contentions which sustain free trade ideology. These arguments–and their flaws–could be considered as follows. Free trade means better prices for consumers Free trade with poorer countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America is desirable, we are advised, because it reduces… Continue reading Free trade revisited

Caveating Criticism of Democracy

I wanted to draw out the thrust of my last post ‘The Sham of Democracy’, in which elections were criticised as being “largely meaningless.” While this remains accurate, a more complete picture requires some nuance to be added. Elections are largely meaningless, but this is different from them being completely meaningless. Because it is the… Continue reading Caveating Criticism of Democracy

The Sham of Democracy

Alternative Hypothesis recently produced two brilliant videos concerning the true nature of democracy. In them, he demonstrates that democracies are less likely to enact the will of the people than dictatorships. The full videos can be found here and here; I obviously exhort my readers to watch them. In addition to the video’s substance, three… Continue reading The Sham of Democracy

The Limits of Democracy

Isn’t it revealing that those who exhort warnings about “saving democracy,” are eager to remove President Trump from office, through less than democratic means? Against all odds: the pressures of Wall Street, Hollywood, the media, the political establishment and demographic trajectories; President Trump rose to power through the democratic system. Despite this authentically populist, grassroots… Continue reading The Limits of Democracy

Responding To 18 Months of Unhinged Leftist Hatred

Many Left-leaning critics claim President Trump has ’emboldened’ the Alt Right. While this may be true, the Trump Presidency has certainly emboldened a more radical, dangerous Alt Left. Whether observed in Madonna threatening to blow up the White House, Maxine Walters inciting mobs to intimidate Trump officials, Kathy Griffin holding up a mask to resemble… Continue reading Responding To 18 Months of Unhinged Leftist Hatred

The ABC’s Trump Derangement Syndrome unveiled

In recent times, the ABC has descended into an intolerant, anti- Australian, biased organisation devoted to spreading Leftist views, despite legislation and a civic duty requiring otherwise. Because of these harmful trends, the ABC’s funding of $1 000 000 000 per annum ought to be eliminated, to inflict irreversible institutional damage extending beyond the current… Continue reading The ABC’s Trump Derangement Syndrome unveiled

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?

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

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

Russia · The Donald Trump Presidency

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
