On Covid19 vaccines. If you are a rare white exception to the rule and are skeptical or hostile to vaccines and the Pfizer/Moderna/Oxford Vaccines you are an Anti Vaxxer. If you are a black who thinks that the doctor is injecting you with poison like the Tuskegee Experiment* did you are what is known as a “Vaccine Hesitant”. What a world.
*common myth believed by the bulk of blacks.
Sincere thanks to Greg Johnson and Jim Goad for this conversation and their honest work. As to Jim Goad’s positive impact, while I was aware of Counter Currents, I don’t think that I would have pursued the opportunity to explore the quality of work here had he remained at Takimag. As well, Beef Squad has consistently dispelled the Covid Blues and elicited enough laughter pay for the Censored T.V. subscription many times over. One positive thing that I can do this month is to get a couple of meager money orders in the mail to Counter Currents, Jim and J.B. All three have made this past year a better place.
Muchas gracias, señor. Should anyone be inclined to subscribe to Censored.TV to watch my weekly show “Beef Squad,” use the code word “goad” to get a 20% discount for a year or for a month. I realize this sounds like huckstering, but hey, he mentioned it, and if you don’t use the code you pay more and I don’t get any royalty money from your subscription.
Do a “Best Week” one time.
There’s hope… I THINK. Good to hear about kids. I’ve got three in LA who are doing various interesting things. The only thing I worry about for their safety though is being cooped up in the Californian overreaction to Covid19.
This was a terrific conversation.
Greg, I’m glad you’re getting into Westerns. For a couple years now, Western films and novels have kept me sane. Also, when I first started reading Carl Schmitt, it struck me how a lot of those stories really illustrate Schmitt’s ideas. Movies like Tombstone, Shane, The Searchers.
Hostiles with Christian Bale 👍
Best War Film has to be Zulu.
The writer also starred in it and we get to see Michael Caine’s impersonation of a Gentleman Officer.
Schedule dosn’t allow partaking in live stream.
American redoubt movement encourages like minded people to move to the inland northwest
Idaho being the heart, the eastern half of Washington and Oregon Montana and Wyoming
The goal being able to dominate the political establishments of these states.
I personally have migrated, two recent well known people who have made the pilgrimage are Henrik & Lana from red ice.
Imo thus is the best shot at a ethno state.
However I suspect James Rawls he guy who is credited with the idea would likely disavow any form of “racism” . Recently I have heard of apalalacha and Southern redoubt movements.
These movements are described as patriot or survivalist oriented.
Great conversation very enjoyable.

Jim, don’t despair! Being red-pilled opens your eyes to the ugly truth. But it comes at a pretty high cost: potential damage to your mental wellbeing. It’s tough absorbing the incessant stream of garbage and lies pushed by the media, pop culture, academia and politicians. For you to then process this into hugely popular articles each week must take a lot of psychological fortitude.
When the BLM riots started unfolding last May, I found your articles (in Taki’s at that time) a great source of solace. Knowing that there was someone else who saw the things I was just beginning to understand really encouraged me. You were my on-ramp to the dissident right in general and Counter-Currents in particular.
Doing what you do might seem dark at times. And maybe it takes a toll on your mental health. But there are many of us out there who ironically get a lot of inspiration and hope from your work. Stay strong and keep spreading the message!
Captain John; Zulu seems to be a seminal film for us WNS. Michael Caine said in the original casting, he was to be one of the enlisted men, but he was changed to be the officer. He did okay, but said he would have felt more at home being one of the rankers, and I can see that. Look at him in The Man Who Would be King as Peachy Carnahan. Caine always feels close to his cockney roots, and fought in the Korean War as an enlisted man.
But as he said, ‘one wants to be with the ranks, but more lines and top billing…what was one to do? I grabbed the ring.’
I greatly enjoyed the dialogue, and especially found Jim’s comments on jail thoughtful. I also like what he said about writing and action to change things; ‘it might have affected the world at one time, but the world’s gotten dumber, so what’s the point?’
Or: ‘everyone expects the world to fall apart, but not while they’re still alive, and now, it’s all collapsing.’ Echos Andrew Anglin that ‘no one is really running the U.S. government; it’s slowly coming under international control,’ and I’m not that sure they have a plan…or at least a smart one. We think of ‘them’ as being all knowing, but what if instead of 1984, they’re simply Idiocracy?
Greg and Jim were a happy pair for a Sunday afternoon.
The fascinating aspect of Caine’s performance is that he was trying to be an officer and so too was the character. Very tense and very appropriate. The real officer Bromhead was apparently deaf and not thought to be be quite the thing. Pased over for promotion. Turned out he was a remarkable man and hero. Very inspiring.
Dear Greg Johnson,
I want to say thank you for interviewing Jim Goad this week. The naturally flowing conversation worked well. He provided useful questions that you should consider answering here at CCP.
Also, thank you for answering two of my five questions this week. You skipped over the other three and didn’t answer the other two from last week. I will repost these five questions.
I have a suggestion for you. There are a number of books these past couple of weeks that you talk about but haven’t reviewed for CCP. You should write a review and publish it here. It will add credibility your webzine and attract more readers.
My advice to Mr. Goad would be mindfulness and working less hard, since you do so much for CC, but you don’t really strike me as the slacker type. Other than that, try to find distractions, preferably apolitical, stuff that you find puts you at ease and takes your mind off the quagmire we live in. In a word: hobbies. Making music, painting, cooking, whatever holds your interest for hours at a time.
I understand that gazing into the abyss is your job in a sense, so you can’t afford to fully detach. But you’ll find that it’s impossible to fully detach anyway – one way or another the “situation” we find ourselves in will intrude into your peaceful existence, no matter where you are or what you do. The upside to that is you’ll never have to force yourself to chase the ball, the ball will chase you. It’s like life in a swarm of flies: you’ll probably not need a net to catch a few, just hold out your hand and there will be enough nasty little critters landing on it for you to dissect and write some stuff about. No need to subject yourself to daily doses of white genocide porn – it’s demoralizing and it helps nobody, least of all yourself.
You do a lot of moral ethical and spiritual good for readers. Funny witty grounded. You are doing, dare I say it, God’s Work. With A.
Greg says that Tito Perdue is his favorite living artist. Can anyone advise which Purdue book its best to start with?
I’d give up a kidney to have David Cole here, plus having Dave, Jim and Greg on a stream together would be sublime. Hearing Greg casually say “real nicka” and “gib shekels” was worth the price of admission by itself but it spawned a interesting discussion to boot. My mom loves Jim (and Cole) and I knew she would be watching on Dlive at her house so I wanted to make her laugh with Greg reading that question, she loved seeing Jim’s dog too. Great stream.
I have to chime in on the Westerns.
I know there are only so many hours in the day, but over the past couple of years I’ve watched probably a 100 Western films. Once you see a few good ones (and there are many, many bad ones), it’s easy to get kind of hooked on the genre. “The West” is a kind of “blank slate” setting to tell a lot of stories about human nature and morality and in particular as it pertains to manhood. My ‘holy trinity’ of Western directors are John Ford, Sergio Leone, and Sam Peckinpah. No one did it like those three even though none of those three were perfect and all had some serious duds in their careers.
My Top Ten Westerns (for what that’s worth):
1. The Searchers (I’m glad you were moved by that film; it’s the GOAT of Western films and my personal favorite film period. I could probably write a college paper on this thing; not that it would be any good but I can ramble about its ironies and themes for hours. I even like the hammy humor in it that plagues some of Ford’s other films.)
2. The Good The Bad & The Ugly (I was also pleased that you recognize the greatness that is The Ecstasy Of Gold; it’s the best part of that film, I think.)
3. Ride The Country (If I could impress upon you to watch one film from my list, it would be this one. It was a bit of a sleeper that was overlooked in its day but has become appreciated among ‘oater’ junkies and even some film critics and rightfully so. It’s the most touching film Sam Peckinpah ever made. This one and The Searchers really tug at my heart strings.)
4. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence (Great almost Shakespearean-like tragedy with a Western setting. It’s a film that is ripe for political analysis and that becomes obvious upon viewing. It’s also great to see both John Wayne and James Stewart in the same film.)
5. The Wild Bunch (Gorgeous picture the entire way. I’m always annoyed at how critics miss ‘the boat’ concerning the film’s messaging. People always interpret this film as some amoral and nihilistic narrative due to who the protagonists are; but I think nothing could be further from the truth. Or they see it as a finger-wagging against violence by virtue of showing extreme violence given the cultural context of its release with Vietnam going on. While that’s certainly valid, there’s so much more depth in the story than just that which all reviewers from what I’ve seen completely miss even if they are positive about the film. William Holden is amazing in this one. His performance here made me want to watch Sunset Blvd.)
6. Shane (Even a NY Jew like Woody Allen liked this one. A classic. Very wholesome. In some ways, the quintessential Western.)
7. A Fistful Of Dollars (Clint Eastwood is great as usual when it comes to such a spaghetti entry, but this one is really all about Lee Van Cleef’s performance.)
8. McCabe & Mrs. Miller (A lot of fans of ‘pure’ Westerns loath this one and I was expecting to hate it as well by virtue of it coming off as some proto-hipster defilement of the genre but I think a lot is actually going on in this film to talk about. It’s not often I find myself agreeing with Pauline Kael but hey…maybe we also like it for different reasons to some extent. Warren Beatty and Julie Christie do a good job. Robert Altman’s style can be annoying–the sound in particular–but I think he paints a beautiful picture, here.)
9. The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (I’m not a big fan of Paul Newman; I think Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid is EXTREMELY overrated. But I loved him in this film. John Milius wrote the script and it obviously shows quite a bit at times. Should resonate with an ‘alt right’ audience on a variety of levels.)
10. True Grit (2011) (I like the original, but Jeff Bridges was just magnificent in this one. It has tighter storytelling than the original as well as better overall acting. And it’s not PC despite being released in 2011. I guess Jews like Coens get a pass. But they use that pass well.)
I don’t want to go on too long here with this subject and with this post but I think other Westerns possibly worth checking out include Hondo, High Noon (John Wayne thought it was communist propaganda and with some degree of truth but it’s still good and not inherently left wing; it only was in the context of 1952.), and the original 3:10 To Yuma (which made me a Glenn Ford fan). I hated the new 2007 3:10 To Yuma. I have plenty of other recommendations but I’ll just keep it there for now.
I also agree with you about Pulp Fiction being Tarantino’s best and arguably his only good/great film. In fact, your analysis encouraged me to go back and revisit the film and I agree completely with your interpretation about why that film surpasses his other efforts and why it stands up and has great artistic value.
I had fun listening to both of you gentlemen. Hope you guys can do it again soon.
That’s a damn fine list. My favourite is probably Once Upon a Time in the West.
And McCabe and Mrs. Miller is an overlooked classic.
Thank you, Tony.
Once Upon a Time in the West is definitely a great selection. A lot of critics actually think it surpasses The Good The Bad & The Ugly. It has another amazing score from Ennio Morricone. And it’s fun to see Henry Fonda playing against ‘type’ with those baby blues of his.
McCabe & Mrs. Miller really is overlooked. I thought it would be one of those films all the ‘smart’ critics liked but that ordinary people rightfully ignored. Like The English Patient of westerns or something, lol. Or another Altman film that came in 2001 called Gosford Park. But Roger Ebert’s praise for the film was 100% justified.
Boy, I was wrong there in judging a book by its cover. It’s not stuffy at all. It’s actually very gritty and ‘real’. What actually probably kills it for casual moviegoers (especially in 1971) is Altman’s style. It’s annoying at first because you can’t always hear the dialogue and the picture is muddied up due to them putting vasoline on the camera lenses but once you get into it, idiosyncrasies like that which one could view as either various technological shortcomings or an artist being too cute by half. But they really do work for me in terms establishing the ambience.
McCabe & Mrs. Miller also has a beautiful (albeit short and simple) soundtrack by Leonard Cohen, of all people. The songs are just beautiful and fit the setting and tone of the film like a glove even though Cohen did not write the songs with the film in mind at all.
Goodness…I need to proofread better.
#3 should be Ride the High Country;
#7 should be For A Few Dollars More
This podcast was the first I’d heard that Tom Metzger has died. I’m sorry to hear it. I still have stacks of his W.A.R. newsletter from the 80s somewhere in storage. He was a good man. Rest in Peace, Terrible Tommy.

For all you true western fans … if you haven’t seen John Wayne’s RED RIVER … drop everything and find a copy. It’s perhaps the most stirring, sprawling, and even comical, cowboy epic ever committed to celluloid.
What Good is White Nationalism 1.0, 2.0, & 3.0 ?
Jim Goad around 1:18 to 1:20 started to answer the question as to what good is White Nationalism in getting forward to an ethnostate before veering off into anything other than “raising consciousness” and “writing propaganda” on behalf of Whites. Later Jim Goad says that it is enhancing identity as whites in common.
My point as a White Supremacist listening in is that as long as ZOG/Banylon there is no way or provision for creating one white racial ethnostate because that would mean that just like the Mormons tried in the 1800s eventually ZOG will destroy these racial and religious White separatism / nationalism. No one is allowed to “opt out” because they will become “wacoized” and placed under ZOG control into the Mighty Evil Empire Collective.
Harold Covington used to write fantastic books of Northwest Imperative in which a Northwest Volunteer Army played a guerilla colonial war based upon what the Irish and the jews in Palestine got free and created their own separate nation state.
White Supremacists used domestic terrorism in the Reconstruction South to set up paramilitary organizations which in conjunction with the Southern Democrats ended Reconstruction and enabled the Jim Crow South for the next 90 years.
By the way, in reference to answering my question and Democrat Eric Swalwell’s claims of using nukes against rural whiggers, I’ll say that the Resistance has stationary nuclear weapons in the form of aging ailing nuclear power plants which will destroy eastern urban ZOG centers of population. In addition a Dylann Storm Coof variant ZOGvirus can be used as well.
As long as the Mighty Evil Empire of ZOG Babylon exists and under White Nationalism as presently thought out there won’t be a single ethnostate formed or allowed.
But when ZOG/Babylon falls in a Collapse after failure of theys’ “Great Reset” (hyperinflating the ZOGbuk away and replacing it with ZOG digital Mark of the Beast 666 and proof of vaccination social credit to where none can buy nor sell) and it is a choice of slavery or death, then ZOG is no more outside their District of Corruption Green Zone, THEN is not only an ethnostate (not formed by begging ZOG for such) but Ten Thousand of them under local military dictatorships possible, indeed probable.
The “Mad Max” situation is only probable in the non-white areas which will be swiftly quarantined and put outside the Pale of White Settlement as when ZOG was first founded.
Perhaps you can interview me sometime, Dr. Johnson. I understand your positions against non-violence and see your usefulness as a White Nationalist 3.0 in large part because someone got to do your job and also because you can’t and won’t act as violently and ruthlessly as a genuine White Supremacist will in achieving our goals of ensuring the survival of YHWH’s Servant Nation of Aryan Christian Israel.
Hail Victory !!!

Rachel Levine permitted Covid patients to go to nursing homes and infect thousands of people, likely killing hundreds if not thousands who otherwise wouldn’t have died. Meanwhile the he-she put his-her mother in a hotel safely away from it all. Only three states put Covid patients in nursing homes, and Levine’s state of Pennsylvania was one of them. His-her reward for it was to be promoted to the Biden administration. Proof that in Clown World you don’t need to be competent. You just need to act like an effeminate (((know-it-all))) and everything will come your way.
