Trump, for Lack of Something Better

Phil Eiger Newmann, Don’t Tread on Us, 2020.

971 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The US presidential election is fast approaching. Personally, do you want Donald Trump to be re-elected? Would a second term of this president please you, if only to see the faces of his opponents, American and European?

Alain de Benoist: I would like his re-election, but by default, for lack of something better. As you know, this character doesn’t thrill me that much. Read more …

Okay, so you’ve managed to forge an alliance of European nations which depends not on “pooling sovereignty,” as the EU is fond of describing its many infringements on the sovereignty of nations, but the pooling of military and diplomatic capability while respecting each European nation’s borders and sovereignty. Things are going well, Read more …

Sympathy for the Dragon

1,107 words

People want someone to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. The obvious culprit is China. It originated in China, China tried to cover up the outbreak for weeks, and the communist state has not been open with what it knows about the virus.

But liberals don’t want to blame China. They want to blame Donald Trump. Surprisingly, many on our side share this view. Read more …

Nations Don’t Go Extinct Due to Loss of Material Comforts:
A Response to Bain Dewitt

Jared Kushner donned his smartest business casual attire for his visit to American troops in Iraq, while Ivanka wrote his name across the front of his bulletproof vest so that everyone in the changing room would know it was his.

3,285 words

The article “Russians Are Not #Ourguys” by Mr. Dewitt has generated a whirlwind of heated response from Counter-Currents readers. In my humble and candid opinion, the article reeks of being a piece of neocon shilling (dotted by some ostensibly decent and rational remarks, admittedly) which reads like it’s straight from the National Review or even The Weekly Standard.

The Turkish Context

Would you rather be a member of the world’s most exclusive club of oligarchs or an Oriental potentate? Only one person in the twenty-first century has had to struggle with that question so far, and his name is Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey. As the hurdles to becoming a Bilderberger in good standing grew higher and the misbehavior of his predecessor’s former subjects became international in scale, the choice has been made for him.  Read more …

Lothrop Stoddard in Geopolitics

stoddard-duotone1,301 words

June 29 is the birthday of T. (for Theodore) Lothrop Stoddard (1883-1950)—scholar, lecturer, geopolitical and racial theorist, and author of perhaps eighteen books.

For a century now, anyone with an interest in geopolitical and racial matters was bound, sooner or later, to come across Stoddard’s name and work. Although he held three degrees, including a doctorate from Harvard, in his career he was always foremost a journalist and popular lecturer rather than an academic scholar.  Read more …

Brexit Means Turks Stay Out, a White EU is Possible

brexit1,605 words

White Nationalism just got its best electoral victory in living memory. The UK’s departure from the EU is the first mortal blow to the EU as conceived by the cultural Marxists, the free market capitalists, and the NATO strategists. It is the first step to the EU or some successor state having a European Identity and a coherent Grand Strategy, one that reflects the goals and values of White Nationalists.

Trad. Radu Simion; English original here

Ce înţeleg politologii atunci când vorbesc despre ,,piropolitică’’? Există două surse ce trebuie explorate pentru a înţelege despre ce vorbesc: în primul rând, ai de investigat întregul tărâm al teologiei politice, inclusiv panseurile lui Donoso Cortés despre liberalism, socialism și catolicism (ultimul fiind perceput ca Tradiţia însăşi) şi va trebui să studiezi bineînţeles temeinic textele de bază ale lui Carl Schmitt, Read more …

What do political scientists mean when they talk about “pyropolitics”? There are two sources to explore in order to understand what they mean; first, you’ll have the whole realm of political theology to investigate, including Donoso Cortés’ thoughts about liberalism, socialism and Catholicism (this last being perceived as Tradition as such) and of course you’ll have to study thoroughly the core idea of Carl Schmitt, Read more …

Последние два года события в Европе развиваются с огромной скоростью.

Затем началось нашествие небелых оккупантов – нелепо именуемых антибелой властью и СМИ “беженцами” – которое происходит в доселе невиданных масштабах.  Read more …

Understanding the War in Syria

1,423 words

PutinAssadThe recent intervention of the Russians in Syria raised hopes among many in the Alt-Right that ISIS (a.k.a. Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) would be swept away like dune dust, and President Assad restored to his adoring people. Since the Russians got involved, however, not much has really changed. Assad may be looking a little more stable and one or two villages may have changed hands, but the country remains a chaotic mess. Why, one wonders, is this the case?  Read more …
