I recently finished an exceptional book: Patrick Buchanan’s The Death of the West. Needless to say, I recommend this book’s reading to all. Within The Death of the West, Buchanan has an especially striking chapter: ‘The Four who Made a Revolution’. In this segment, Buchanan reveals a great deal about Cultural Marxism; how it emerged;… Continue reading Understanding Cultural Marxism
When this blog was founded in October 2015, I described myself as a ‘conservative’. In this fledging period, I mostly blogged against Islam, ISIS, climate change, socialism, Malcolm Turnbull and Barrack Obama. Then after becoming increasingly right-wing, I detached myself from the conservative label. Yet, additional research revealed I’d jumped the gun. When defined appropriately,… Continue reading The Distinction Between Contemporary and Classical Conservatism
By Patrick J. Buchanan, September 13, 2018: Our diversity is our greatest strength. After playing clips of Democratic politicians reciting that truth of modern liberalism, Tucker Carlson asked, “How, precisely, is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific.” Reaction to Carlson’s question, with some declaring him a racist… Continue reading The Unpardonable Heresy of Tucker Carlson
While written a few weeks ago, Pat Buchanan’s response to President Trump’s tariffs are equally relevant to US trade policy, and the topic of protectionism more broadly. While I recommend reading the entire piece, Buchanan’s primary arguments can be summarised as: “Production comes before consumption. Who consumes the apples is less important than who owns… Continue reading Pat Buchanan’s defence of protectionism
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?
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?
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?
By Pat Buchanan, September 5, 2017: By setting off a 100-kiloton bomb, after firing a missile over Japan, Kim Jong Un has gotten the world’s attention. What else does he want? Almost surely not war with America. For no matter what damage Kim could visit on U.S. troops and bases in South Korea, Okinawa and… Continue reading Should Japan and South Korea Go Nuclear?
Before President Trump considers whether further American involvement in overseas wars is necessary, despite the war- hungry ways of the beltway, he ought to remember the abundance of conflicts the US already finds itself inextricably involved in. Moreover, the tremendous economic and human costs of any military clash with Russia, North Korea or Iran, by… Continue reading Shall We Fight Them All?
Established opinion nowadays suggests that President Nixon, a Republican, orchestrated his ‘Southern Strategy’ to win over racist, white voters in the post- civil rights era. And that subsequently, modern day GOP dominance in the deep south (a previously Democratic- dominated region), owes to this unholy pact. However, as a close aide to President Nixon during… Continue reading Nixon’s ‘Southern Strategy’ and the Liberals’ Big Lie
While traditionally Right- wing arguments against the minimum wage are renowned, modern times have showed that for conservative parties to gain success amidst an increasingly Islamized, diversified West, they must court the support of native, blue collar populations. So how could this pivot be made in regards to the minimum wage, without entirely disregarding long held… Continue reading Right- wing populism vs the minimum wage
While much of the past 30 years has been dedicated towards building colourless societies, these attempts have often failed. After Nelson Mandela proclaimed his country to be a ‘rainbow nation’, recent decades have seen increasing hostility between South Africa’s white and black populations. Additionally, the 2008 election of Barrack Obama was supposed to symbolize the… Continue reading Is ethnonationalism the way forward?
Another well written piece exposing elements of neoconservative hypocrisy within the GOP. “Bibi Backs Trump- on Putin”, Pat Buchanan, September 15 2016: Since Donald Trump said that if Vladimir Putin praises him, he would return the compliment, Republican outrage has not abated. Arriving on Capitol Hill to repair ties between Trump and party elites, Gov. Mike Pence… Continue reading Bibi Backs Trump — on Putin
An interesting perspective on the impact that free trade has had on the United States, particularly given its importance in the meteoric political rise of Donald J. Trump. “Trump is right on Trade”, Pat Buchanan, February 19 2016: Republican hawks are aflutter today over China’s installation of anti-aircraft missiles on Woody Island in the South… Continue reading Buchanan on free trade
