After several weeks of not having a Speaker of the House, the GOP have finally settled on a replacement for the deposed Kevin McCarthy. The lucky winner is Representative Mike Johnson of Louisiana. Johnson was first elected to Congress in 2016, which makes him the least experienced Speaker since John G. Carlisle in 1883. (more…)

Pox Populi & Morgoth on the Age of Immigration & More
Guest host Pox Populi (Telegram, YouTube) welcomed Morgoth (Substack, Odysee) back to Counter-Currents Radio on our most recent livestream to talk about the age of immigration, the competency crisis, gardening, and much more, and it is now available for download and online listening. (more…)
On Friday, the Huffington Post exposed Substack writer Richard Hanania, a prominent media personality in mainstream conservative/center-Right circles, as a “white supremacist” who wrote for several dissident Right websites, including Counter-Currents, in the early 2010s under the pseudonym “Richard Hoste.” “Hoste” wrote about race realism and human biodiversity (HBD) and advocated for eugenics and immigration restriction.

Farage against the machine
De-banking has arrived in Great Britain. Or rather, it has been going on for some time, but now it’s happened to someone with media leverage. Nigel Farage, the ex-financier who engineered Brexit, was contacted by his bank and told his account was being closed down. The bank in question is Coutts & Co., an exclusive concern who won’t even let you sit down if you haven’t got a million quid. The Queen used to bank there, although the current King seems the sort of personage who might give his money to that nice Nigerian chap who emailed him about his uncle also being a King and having made a will.

Immigration has become a major issue in Central Europe since 2015, whereas since the fall of Communism the primary social issue in this region had been emigration . But a lot has changed since the famous “migrant crisis” along the Balkan route — and the faces you see in the streets of Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, and Bratislava are changing, too.
Over a few weeks in the summer of 2015, a veritable migratory route was set up stretching from Turkey and Greece to Hungary, the guardian of the Schengen Zone’s southeastern border. (more…)
Have you ever talked yourself out of a job? The Cambridge University Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic have. The Dons have declared that Anglo-Saxons did not exist, which should free up a third of their time. (more…)
John Morgan talks about the prospects for uniting religion and ethnonationalism, as well as the inauspicious history that the two have with each other, in this video from the 2023 Counter-Currents Spring Retreat. The text of the talk, including links for more information, is here. (more…)
The following is the text of Gregory Hood’s opening statement in the “Ethnonationalism vs. Imperialism” debate with Greg Johnson that was held at the recent Counter-Currents Spring Retreat. Dr. Johnson’s opening statement, which preceded this one, can be read here.
It’s not a question of whether you want to live in an imperium or not. You’re going to live under an imperial rule of some kind. The only question is whose it’s going to be. (more…)
The following is the text of a talk that was given at the recent Counter-Currents Spring Retreat. The video can be seen here, or below.
Cyan asked me to speak on this topic, and before I begin, I just want to clarify something, because when it comes to these matters I’m overly pedantic. But historically speaking, ethnonationalism and religion don’t go together. This is because the nation-state itself, which was born out of either the French Revolution or the Second English Civil War, depending on who you ask, has always been secular and opposed to any mixing of politics and religion.

New York: The Baker & Taylor Company, 1885
In the period between the Civil War and the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the division between Left and Right in the United States had a different arrangement than today. William Jennings Bryan, for example, was a man of the Left, but Leftists would disavow his intense religious faith today.
The main reason for this difference is because at that time all sides of the political elite buried race issues. (more…)
You might not have heard, but Spain is currently undergoing its own version of a George Floyd moment. Scaled down, of course — nothing can really match American production value — but nonetheless, there is a storm brewing, one resembling what much of American sociopolitics has been reduced to: racism and victimhood grifting.
A storm — although in actual fact, it’s more like a tempest in a teacup, as is often the case with these sort of black grievances. It all started last weekend when the Real Madrid Football Club went to Valencia to play that city’s main football (or soccer, if you prefer) team. (more…)
