Mass Immigration Is The Rope With Which Open-Borders Libertarians Will Hang Us

M

By Darrell Dow If libertarian ideologues and open borders apologists are right, the best thing about American Big Tech is that Indians are running it. They dominate the executive suite. Parag Agrawal, CEO of Twitter, is just the latest Indian-born executive to rise to the top spot at a U.S. tech company. The heads of IBM, Nokia, Adobe, Pepsi, Google, Microsoft, and Mastercard are from India...

Don’t be Distracted by the “Ukraine Crisis”

D

By Wayne Allensworth Is it “stupid,” as one friend asked me recently, for “us” to be involved in the Russia-Ukraine crisis? My answer: It’s not stupidity driving this, but ideology. Stupidity in such a case would be acting in way contrary to the American interest, but that assumes the “stupid” parties involved could even think of an “American interest” in a way any normal person could understand...

LEAVING NATO, WITH A TWIST: A MODEST PROPOSAL

L

By Tom Piatak Although the media continue to predict a Russian attack on Kiev, followed by an attempt to retake the whole of Ukraine, such a full-scale invasion seems very unlikely at this point. Instead, it appears that Vladimir Putin has achieved his objective in Ukraine, without taking any territory he did not already, de facto, control. Despite what the Ukrainian people may or may not want...

Why I Oppose War With Russia: My Country Comes First

W

By Tom Piatak With respect to foreign policy, I am an America First nationalist, not a Kissingerian-Bismarckian “realist.”  The former is a moral position, grounded in the fact that a statesman’s primary duty lies to those he serves in office; the latter is an amoral belief grounded in the notion that big fish eat little fish, and the fewer little fish there are causing problems, the...

An Elegy for Wild Bill

A

By Wayne Allensworth I was blessed to be able to take care of my father, Bill Allensworth (1931-2022). It was a lot of work, sometimes it was overwhelming, but it strangely set me at peace. I realized it was one of the few really unselfish things I’d ever done and that it was not only my father, but me, who was the better for it. Thank you for that opportunity, Daddy, and thanks to all my...

Bowling Alone in Columbine

B

By Wayne Allensworth Politics are over in America. Political maneuvering will go on, of course, but the old civics class view of American political life was based on a set of assumptions that are no longer operative.  First, America was far more homogenous before the 1965 Immigration Act and the 60’s “New Left” political and social revolution changed the country demographically and...

All Politics Are Racial And Tribal. Conservative Policy Proposals Must Recognize That Fact

A

As They Say, ‘Demography Is Destiny’ By Darrell Dow “In coping with identity crisis,” Samuel Huntington wrote in Clash of Civilizations, “what counts for people are blood and belief, faith and family. People will rally to those with similar ancestry, religion, language, values, and institutions and distance themselves from those with different ones. … In a very fluid world, people are looking for...

A Nation Of Immigrants, No … But Still …

A

By Tom Piatak Fun fact learned over the weekend: my Polish great-grandfather came to America on the same ship as my Slovak great-grandmother, along with several thousand others. I wonder if they ever realized that. My Slovak great-grandmother on her way to meet her husband in Cleveland, along with her young son and several friends from their village.  (Lines 23 through 30). Walenty...

Marriage and Post-Christian America

M

By Wayne Allensworth “MAGA,” if one means by that the restoration of an earlier version of America, has always been a delusion. The old country is dead and gone and has been for a long time. At present, the best long-term plan for the American Remnant, especially serious Christians, is probably something like Rod Dreher’s “Benedict Option” of a strategic withdrawal from a toxic anti-culture...
