Relax! Liberal Witches are Powerless to Harm TrumpJef Costello
Since I believe in witchcraft (and have practiced it for years) I will admit that my heart skipped a beat when I heard that witches were planning to perform a worldwide spell to stop the God-Emperor. So far this story has been covered by the BBC, The Daily Mail, The New York Post, and other outlets. No word yet from The National Enquirer.
Here is the gist: encouraged by one Lana Del Rey, a singer of whom I have never heard, witches around the world pledged to cast a binding spell against Donald Trump at midnight on Friday, February 24. The call went out for witches to surround Trump Tower in New York, where they would link hands around the building and hex our forty-fifth President. Their voices were to have risen to the heavens, where the clouds would have parted and re-formed into ominous patterns amid much thunder and lightning, à la Ghostbusters or, perhaps, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
But it was not to be. Apparently, only a handful of witches showed up. They squatted on the pavement outside the building and had quite a lot of difficulty getting their shit together before actually coming round to the spellcasting part. (Surprisingly, liberal witches do not seem to be that well organized.) You can see a video of their ineptitude here. You have to give this one a chance. It takes these ladies (and a few gelded males) a while to get going, but once they actually begin chanting it becomes a hilarious cacophony of crazy cat lady and barren, brittle feminist voices. Ending with the impotent, nasal whimper of “So mote it be!!”
In case you don’t know, a binding spell is a spell designed to bind someone: to stop them from acting in a particular way; usually to stop them from doing harm. My landlady, an accomplished witch, taught me a very effective binding spell years ago, and I have used it several times with much success. (Thus confirming the old adage of ancient Roman witches, post hoc ergo propter hoc.) I will not print my binding spell here, as one doesn’t share that sort of thing indiscriminately. It would violate the witches’ code. But these liberal crones apparently have no such qualms and have published their spell in its entirety. You can find it here. It is amateurish, to say the least.
But can it actually work? I will surprise my readers by saying that, yes, of course it can. The major reason why most people are skeptical about witchcraft is because they think it absurd that sticking a pin in a candle and lighting it and then saying a few corny words is actually going to change anything. Literally, they are correct. Candles (even orange ones) can’t do magic. But people can – some people. In the hands of the right person, a spell becomes a powerful technique. The elements in a spell, which seem so absurd and arbitrary to the rational mind, are there to awaken the imagination – which is digging a lot deeper than consulting the rational mind. “The imagination is the key to the occult,” said Israel Regardie, Aleister Crowley’s personal secretary. The imagination is our way into a depth of being that transcends the ordinary space-time relations absolutized by reason. In this depth, it becomes possible to alter reality in order to bring it into accord with the will, in an unmediated fashion (or, at least, in a fashion that does not employ any mundane, familiar mediation).
So, if you have followed me so far, you may now be fearing for Trump. Should we catch and burn these witches? (Witchfinding is easy these days, thanks to Facebook.) Fear not! For recall I said that only in the hands of the right person, spells can be effective. Liberal witches, in fact, are quite powerless to work any magic. To put things in technical terms, the reason is that they haven’t got any mojo.
Mojo comes from being connected to what is, in the scariest possible way. It’s not just facing facts, but facing the abyss. The terrible, yawning gap from which all things flow. The eternal sucking gorge of the void. Which is also the Sun. It is the Great Beast. It is Time, destroyer of all, come to consume the world. It is Alpha and Omega. It is the infinite, striving Will. It is Will to Power. It is the Indefinite. It is the exalted flow of the space-time continuum, save that it is spaceless and timeless. It is also the meaning we glimpse in sex (good sex; and liberals do not have good sex).
To have mojo means to be at peace with this horror. Really, to be one with it – so long as one recognizes that “I” am going to be thoroughly wiped out, leaving just a grease spot on the floor. (And actually this has already happened to “me” an infinite number of times.) Having mojo opens our eyes not just to the beyond, but to the here and now. Yes, it’s a perception of the “unity of all things,” but in contrast to what the wet mystics say (the phony, gooey mystics) it makes us keenly aware of difference. It is impossible to commune with Abraxas and believe in equality. Everything is inequality, hierarchy, and power. Life is violence and destruction. It is the continual clash of other against other. The continual clobbering of the weak by the strong. Dominance and submission. Wet work without end, in which we must partake joyfully.
And this is why liberals can’t work spells. They are set in opposition to life. Their minds are like heavy clouds full of icy water: baggy, unformed, floating over the abyss, now and then tinkling cold, lifeless streams into its vast, uncaring infinitude. Desperately seeking more altitude, more distance between thinking and being; terrified of getting sucked into the real. The liberal philosophy is a radical denial of what is. They have no blood and they have no bones, and the gods do not listen to them. Really, the destiny of liberals is to be scraped off the bottom of somebody’s boots. They are losing – quite entertainingly – the political war. And they do not have what it takes to wage an occult war. So, fear not for the God Emperor!
But, oh boy: what if we should choose to wage an occult war on them? Liberals should consider themselves lucky that very, very few Right-wingers are going to take this essay seriously.

Good one. Apparently some pagans for Trump did blocking and protection spells and some Christians prayed for Trump’s protection. Even some leftist pagans questioned the ‘ethics’ of it, as they are prone to pontificate The old/young occultist you tuber styxhexenhammer did a post on them too. No wonder they were so incompetent. I could not watch it all, I was laughing so hard. That they filmed it, says it all. There is this little ‘keep silent’ rule. I guess they forgot.
Well said. How puny and amateur they appear. This is fairyland child’s play witchcraft’. From crystal shops and the like. It isn’t magic at all. They haven’t a hope of getting through banishment thought forms and rituals to repel them. True practitioners don’t need to be near the target either. Or require silly props etc. It’s in the mind. Focusing the mind is the only process. Like the great medieval magicians like Paracelsus. The true occultist is retiring and never an attention seeker. To know, to see, to dare and TO KEEP SILENT. Silence is a fundamental part of occultism. These fools, why aren’t they wearing their pink pussy hats?? So stupid, with no class or sophistication or intelligence. No idea how utterly ridiculous they were in those hats . They are equally as dumb,clueless and stupid, playing ‘witchy’ attention seeker in the street. You have to laugh.
Perhaps we were sharing thoughts, but i just recently had the same idea of a group spell. If you ever need another caster, let me know. I think the spells we weave by the very nature of writing in the alt right are doing our bidding quite swimmingly.
If Magick is about probability enhancement, you first have to make a realistic assessment of the causes of a situation, and then of the probabilities of a change. It is no use doubling the probability of 0.00000000000000001 % chance. By refusing to acknowlegde reality, liberals both try to change the wrong variables and ignore the real probabilities. Their magick fails even before they get started.
I took it quite seriously. I hope we can look forward to more such essays. Who have your magical mentors been? What do think of Edred Thorsson and John Michael Greer?
I have never read Greer. Most of what I know about magic I learned from Edred Thorsson.

During World War II, Dion Fortune and her magical order, the Fraternity of the Inner Light, organised a series of visualisations to invoke angelic protection to deflect Adolf’s nefarious plan to invade Britain. Seems to have worked . . . 😉
I’m familiar with the writings of Aleister Crowley and chaos magicians like Peter J Carroll. What authors have you found most helpful Jef?
The writer I have found most helpful is Edred Thorsson AKA Stephen Flowers. I also learned a few things from Anton LaVey.
Dion Fortune was much more powerful than these crystal shop amateurs. As were her fellow practitioners. These twats are v likely to have never heard of Kabbala. Also they were repealing something very evil during WW2. But the above ‘attempt’ is against something which is good for America hence it’s unlikely the efforts will ever work, even from real practitioners.
Looks like the Hari Krishnas are chanting for Trump!
Nearly burst out laughing when I read it, perhaps we found a winner to the insult brainstorming brought on by the White Submissivists article.
Trump must be crapping himself! Maybe Flynn should be appointed Witch-Finder General?
The woman in the picture is wearing what looks like the emblem of SPECTRE. Thus I suppose, she wants to be seen as a comic book villain. I would love to read James J. O’Meara digressing on that.
It’s strange to see someone who knows Magick declaring who can- and cannot- work Magick on the basis of their Sports Team (i.e. Political Party.)
1. Abraxas is about Hierarchy? In that case, is the Worm higher than the Lion because he eats the Lion?
2. If everything is ultimately going to be collapsed to a greasy spot by Abraxas- then Abraxas himself is ultimately going to make everything in existence equal. That… doesn’t appear to be a strong argument against the idea of Equality or the people who hold it.
3. Abraxas as Aeon- there are other AEONS, like Sophia, the Wisdom necessary for the People to remove the power from Trump. I don’t understand your appearing to declare the energies of the Pillar of Mercy non-existent.
4. Calling someone “Gelded” doesn’t make their testicles fall off, but does reveal the speaker as someone with unresolved concerns about their own masculinity. It is odd that you would talk about magical War and then reveal classic Freudian Castration Anxiety to your “enemies.”
I didn’t cast this spell because it was Bullshit, like most everything else on Facebook. It reminded me of the Washington Free Beacon- disinformation in the service of malice. Using the Tower Card- disaster stRiki-Eiking a symbol of an arrogant empire- to target the President of the United States? Is a spell the harm the United States. You don’t bind with Tower energy, because Tower is not about control. I thought someone who hated America designed the spell to subvert the energies of the less experienced- I wish I had spoken out to my tribe (Liberal Witches) at the time.
But make no mistake- we have blood, we have bones, and we have been interring the bones of God Emperors (like Ozymandias) into the loving care of our Mother for millennia. Trump, too, Shall Pass.
