Listening to Steve Bannon

Friends, Those who know me know that I have no use for Steve Bannon and his pro-Papist and pro-Zionist agenda (he is what I refer to as a “national-Zionist”).  But let’s not deny that the man is clever and well connected.  He also understands US politics.  He just gave an interview to Tucker Carlson and I have to say that I fully share his analysis of the situation.  So, exceptionally

A Call to Divine Unity: Letter of Imam Khomeini to President Mikhail Gorbachev

Introduction by the Saker: a Muslim friend of mine sent me the document below and when I read it, I decided to share it with you.  Why?  Because I happen to think that Putin actually did follow much of the advice given by Imam Khomeini.  Not to the letter, of course (Putin has not converted to Islam, but chose to embrace Christian Orthodoxy), and not necessarily because he was aware

A very good discussion of the Kenosha shooting

Friends, I want to share what I consider a very good and useful video discussing what happened during the now famous shootout in Kenosha.  I just want to add two things: First, in my opinion, the single most important advice this video gives is this: don’t go somewhere you would not go without a gun with a gun.  Or don’t ever do what you would not do without a gun

America’s Race Reality: Inhuman, Insane, Incoherent

by Ilana Mercer, published with the authorization of the author Racism is a lot of things. One thing it is not: A white child, aged five, executed by a black man with a shot to the head, as the tyke rode his bike. Ask the cultural cognoscenti. They’ll tell you: That’s never racism. Otherwise, almost anything involving the perpetually aggrieved black community counts as racism. Students hoist a “thin blue

Systemic racism or systemic rubbish

By Ilana Mercer, posted with permission of the author The “systemic racism” refrain is a meaningless abstraction. Operationalize the nebulous abstraction that is “systemic racism,” or get out of my face! To concretize a variable, it must be cast in empirical, measurable terms, the opaque “racism” abstraction being one variable (to use statistical nomenclature). Until you have meticulously applied research methodology to statistically operationalize this inchoate thing called “racism”—systemic or

Germany likely to benefit from US troop withdrawal, says Russian envoy

US President Donald Trump announced on June 15 that Washington would reduce the number of US troops in Germany from 34,500 to 25,000 unless Berlin agreed to pay for their deployment and raise defense spending in accordance with NATO agreements. Trump has repeatedly demanded that all NATO countries spend at least two percent of their gross domestic products on defense. The envoy noted that the US administration’s decision on relocating

Bring In The Feds! Protection Of Natural Rights Trumps Federalism

by Ilana Mercer, posted with the author’s authorization America circa 2020 continues to erupt in riots, spurred by the death-by-cop of George Floyd. The violence is qualitatively different to the violence that roiled the U.S. during the race riots of 1964. Whether you thought those riots right or wrong, back in 1964, state police officers were a forceful presence for law-and-order. They did damage to rioters as deliberately as they
