Israeli Minister Won’t Rule Out Using the Samson Option to Nuke Gaza
If someone said “Amichai Eliyahu” to me, my first instinct would be to say, “Gesundheit!”
Amichai Eliyahu is Israel’s Minister of Heritage, which apparently means that his role is to maintain a long and seemingly uninterrupted heritage of seeing Jews as divinely anointed and everyone else as subhuman cattle to be extorted and murdered whenever The Chosen see fit. (more…)

Waco: The Aftermath, which follows 2018’s miniseries Waco and was made by the same production team, is a historical-fiction miniseries that examines the cultural impact of the FBI’s calamitous 51-day siege of the Branch Davidian “compound” in Waco, Texas which ended with a raid on April 19, 1993 in which 76 civilians were killed. The miniseries has three plotlines. The first centers on the criminal trial involving Branch Davidian Clive Doyle (John Hoogenakker) and his lawyer Dan Cogdell (Giovanni Ribisi), as well as co-defendants Ruth Riddle (Kali Rocha), Livingstone Fagan (Michael Luwoye), and Paul Fatta (Nicholas Kolev).

I’ll always remember the day Twitter restored my long-suspended account — not because it was a particularly meaningful occasion for me, but because it happened to fall on Valentine’s Day. Elon Musk’s romantic gift, as I jokingly thought of it, lasted little longer than a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. Exactly two months and 14 days later, I was booted off the platform again. (more…)
Each year, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance names a “White Renegade of the Year,” a tradition begun by Wilmot Robertson’s Instauration. The white renegade of the year is someone who could have used his position to help whites but instead chose to do the opposite. In the same spirit, Counter-Currents is inaugurating a “Non-White Ally of the Year” series, to recognize non-whites who have used their position to help whites.
In 2022, Kanye West — whose popularity and reach came as quite shock to me — received enormous coverage for wearing a White Lives Matter t-shirt. (more…)

I cheered when Elon Musk bought Twitter, promising to turn it into a free speech platform. (more…)

Censorship is not always about hiding secrets. Sometimes it is just an assertion of raw power. — Nick Cohen, You Can’t Read This Book
There is something special about being ten years old. Every child knows this on his tenth birthday, crossing the shadow line from single to double digits. It means you’re all grown up. A similar thing happens to books, particularly those which concern themselves with politics and metapolitics. We read them again a decade after they were born and ask, “Well, you’re a big boy now. What have you got to say for yourself?” (more…)
On Saturday, May 14th, 2022, Payton Gendron, an 18-year-old white man concerned with “the Great Replacement” of whites by non-whites, went to a place frequented by non-whites and started shooting. At this time, ten people are dead, most of them black. You can read his Manifesto here.
Before I go into my standard boilerplate article on such shooting sprees, I need to note several things. (more…)
Anacharsis wrote about the laws existing among the Scythians, and also about those in force among the Greeks, urging men to adopt a temperate course of life, and he wrote also about war, his works being in verse, and amounting to eight hundred lines: (more…)
When renegade weed-smoking transhumanist wannabe Martian Elon Musk announced his $46.5-billion takeover of Twitter on Monday, he said, “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”
Musk had also compared the site to a “town square” a month ago on Twitter, when he asked his 85 million+ followers: “Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done?” (more…)
