Donald Trump and the American Counterrevolution, A.D. 2016

Julius Nisle, “Pact between Faust and Mephistopheles” (engraving 1840) Sooner or later even the darkest cloud must have a silver lining.

America as a Promised Land for Jews: Threatened by Muslims, Israel and White Identity?

Note: This is an edited, linked version of my talk at the NPI conference in Washington, DC, November 19, 2016. I am going to talk about Jews. It’s not that I relish doing this, but somebody’s got to do it, and it’s definitely a subject that needs to be addressed as best we can, fairly […]

Reaction to Trump’s election: Pride, narcissism, and (over)privilege at the BBC

You might think that after a disaster as humiliating as the election of Donald Trump that our anointed elites would take this opportunity for a bit of humility — that this would be an opportunity for introspection and some soul-searching self-reflection. Well, the good news is that you would be wrong. For this would involve […]
