Near-Greatness & Shenanigans: Bill Clinton & the Unwise Right
In tyrannies. . . to test the tyrant’s authority was to risk incarceration, torture, and death; in America’s democracy, by contrast, to contest the president’s authority was to win media attention, big book advances, posses of fellow-travelers, and lawyers such as Ken Starr crowding for business and prominence.

He sat alone on a giant throne
Pretending he’s the king.
A little tyke who’s rather like
A puppet on a string.
— “The Phoney King of England”
Long before anyone thought to call him a neoreactionary, mostly because he himself said it’d be the term a Harvard progressive would use to describe him, Mencius Moldbug called himself a formalist. (more…)
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller ended his investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election on March 22. It was clear from the get-go that the probe was a Stalinist, “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” sort of investigation. (more…)
Fascism: A Warning
New York: Harper Collins Publishing, 2018
Although many on the Right saw Bill Clinton as the devil incarnate, I’d like to first point out that the Clinton Administration was not entirely evil. Clinton’s first crisis was the Haitian refugee swarm, which he turned back. Clinton also attempted the sort of immigration reform we could get behind (more…)
Principalities & Powers, Part Nine
The Life of Reilly
One good way to ruin your Christmas this year would be to spend the holidays reading a new book entitled Abandoned: The Betrayal of the American Middle Class since World War II, by two law professors at the University of South Carolina, William J. Quirk and R. Randall Bridwell. Maybe you don’t want to ruin your Christmas, and that’s understandable, but if you do read the book, you will at least be prepared to understand what is likely to happen to you and to what remains of your country in the coming years.

Even the weariest presidential campaign winds somewhere to the sea, and this month, as the ever dwindling number of American voters meanders into the voting booths, the sea is exactly where the political vessels in which the nation sails have wound up. Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. (more…)
He Was Just About . . . to Turn His Life Around!
Menace II Society & the Culmination of African Liberation
Menace II Society
Directed by Allen & Albert Hughes
Starring Tyrin Turner, Jada Pinkett, Bill Duke, Larenz Tate, & Charles S. Dutton
Although the Oscar Winner for Best Picture that year was an escapist, integrationalist Western called Unforgiven, Menace II Society was quite possibly the most culturally impactful movie of 1993. (more…)
Any discussion of the plausibility of conspiracies has to start with MK Ultra—one of the most bizarre “conspiracy theories” that turned out, by all official accounts, to be completely and entirely true. MK Ultra was a CIA program that began in the early 1950s and operated at full scale from then until around 1964. The program was reduced in scope in 1964 and then again in 1967 and wasn’t officially put to an end until 1973 —although 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti claimed in 1977 that the CIA’s assurances that it had stopped the program were nothing more than a “cover story.”
It was refreshing to see a white person not on the fringes of mainstream society finally stand up to the Black Lives Matter crowd, even if it was only for a moment. And it wasn’t who you would expect.
On April 7th, while campaigning for his wife in Philadelphia before a largely black audience, former president Bill Clinton met with heckling from crowd members. Their beef? (more…)
Opinion polls leading up to our imminent invasion of Syria confirm that the public mood is sour on bogging ourselves down in yet another Middle Eastern bloodbath. Bill Clinton scolded Obama for his tepid and hesitant effort to sell the conflict, as if the real issue were whether or not he’s a “total wuss.” (more…)
