In two long and thought-provoking articles, John Waters gives us his understanding of what’s going on in Europe and Africa right now, and how the latter is about to explode over Europe in a wave of desperate migration invasion that’s going to swamp the Old World altogether. They’re unpleasant reading, but I think –… Continue reading John Waters explains what’s about to happen in Europe
All the current talk about threats of war with Russia over Ukraine are about the stupidest thing I can imagine . . . except that the Biden administration has painted itself into a corner with its incompetence and buffoonery, and the oligarchs that are pulling its strings realize that their exploitation of COVID-19 to… Continue reading Someone please tell me: what compelling national security interest does the USA have in Ukraine???
I was pleased to see this article at Quillette. The author, Jonathan Kay, is clearly of mid-left-wing political sympathies, but he’s also clearly a thinking man, who’s realized that we’re headed like lemmings towards a cliff from which there’s no return. I can only wish more people of good will, on both sides, could… Continue reading More and more people, on both sides of the political divide, are waking up to reality
After the disputed August 2020 elections in Belarus, followed by a crackdown against political dissidents in that country, Lithuania supported efforts by pro-democracy groups. In response, the autocratic regime of Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko has retaliated against Lithuania – and against the European Union, of which Lithuania is a member and which has also… Continue reading Weaponizing illegal migration
Max Morton asked that question on Memorial Day. Bold, underlined text is my emphasis. America today is run by someone, we’re not really sure who, and every part of its culture and history is being deconstructed. The Constitution is not even a speed bump to a new class of oligarchs and tyrants who are… Continue reading Is there still an America worth dying for?
I’m getting awful tired of those who blame the Jews for any and every evil that afflicts us. Anti-semitism is an age-old shibboleth, something brought out of the closet whenever activists for whatever cause need a scapegoat to explain away their particular obsession. Adolf Hitler is the best-known example, but he was only one… Continue reading Yet again, they’re blaming “the Jews”
An interesting article examines the state of race relations in America from the perspective of a self-described “elite” African-American writer, and points out some uncomfortable truths. Here’s an excerpt. Activists on the Left of American politics claim that “white supremacy,” “implicit bias,” and old-fashioned “anti-black racism” are sufficient to account for black disadvantage. But… Continue reading “Unspeakable truths” about race in America
I think one of the saddest aspects of our current political, social and cultural polarization in these dis-United States is that most of us no longer listen to those with different opinions to our own. We’ve retreated into our “comfort zones”, and we tend to stay there. Anyone who agrees with us is in that… Continue reading An open mind versus a closed mind
Europe is facing perhaps the most critical set of challenges in its modern history – and in combination, they threaten to destroy the European Union and its common currency, the Euro. The coronavirus pandemic is merely the “cherry on top” of a set of other issues that are all coming to a head simultaneously. What’s… Continue reading The “perfect storm” may be brewing in Europe
Earlier this month, I wrote an article titled “Why African migrants will flood the world over the next half-century“. As if to highlight the sheer desperation for something – anything! – better that most migrants exhibit, the BBC has published a remarkable in-depth article about a young Ghanaian man who decided to try to document… Continue reading Desperation makes them risk their lives – and many lose them
