Can Poland Be Poland — and Stay in the EU?...

"Let Poland be Poland!" That was the call of American conservatives, four decades ago, when the Solidarity movement of labor leader Lech Walesa arose in the port city of Gdansk to demand their freedom of the Communist system imposed upon Poland by...

"Both Sides Now" (in the Key of Auschwitz)...

I'm growing increasingly annoyed at the "demographics is destiny" trope. Not because it's incorrect (it isn't), but because more and more it's being used as a crutch. "Death's coming to us all." That's a 100% true s...

Surviving the Modern Age...

If by some blessed miracle the mass media in American suddenly went dark, one of the first things people would notice is the quiet. The outside world would remain as noisy as before, but the inside world, the space in your head, would get very quiet. The ...

The Week That Perished...

The Week's Most Arched, Starched, and Parched Headlines THE GREAT NETFLIX PRANCE-OUT When BLM sacked L.A. last year, the "peaceful protesters" focused on the wealthy Westside. It made sense; upscale territory filled with treasure. Sadly for th...

The Great Divide...

NEW YORK—"The City of London Is Hiding the World's Stolen Money," screams a Bagel Times headline, as bogus a message as that caricature of a newspaper's other captions of an antiwhite, anti-cop, anti-male, and anti-Conservative platf...

Responsibility Without Power...

According to a recent survey, more than half of child and adolescent psychiatrists in Britain report having been consulted by young patients distressed about climate change and the state of the environment. The alleged effects of climate change (or more e...

Media Gone Wild (Over Trump!)...

If you really, really miss Donald Trump, MSNBC may just be for you! Biden is cratering, fuel prices are skyrocketing (hey, anybody seen Greta Thunberg?), hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are pouring across our border, and the murder rate keeps hitt...

Columbus Opus...

Last week there was a historic day in New York City with the inaugural celebration of Indigenous Peoples/Italian Heritage Day, a hybrid creation by craven politicians to placate the "Progressive"; forces in our society demanding the end of any trib...

The Grateful Deaf...

The FDA's approval in 1990 of cochlear implants that enable some of the deaf to hear set off a political struggle. On one side were the hearing parents of deaf children, who tend to assume that five senses are better than four. On the other were deaf ...

Nationalism to Confront Globalism in Glasgow...

"Extraordinary, isn't it? I've been hearing all about COP," said the queen to the duchess of Cornwall. "Still don't know who is coming. ... We only know about people who are not coming. ... It's really irritating when they talk...

And a Child Shall Mislead Them...

This week, we take a focused look at how the West's most destructive superstition can grip the mind of even the most strident "rationalist,4; and what that means for those of us who don't partake in the sance. Penn Jillette, the tall half o...

The Dionysian Theater of Democracy...

One of the features of liberal democracy is it turns the natural virtues of a people into vices that help the beneficiaries gnaw away at the social fabric. The manufactured consent that results from every election inevitably rewards the tiny minority that...

The End of an Error...

Obituary notices are not usually a source of great fun. If one should not speak ill of the recently dead, unless they were utter monsters such as Pol Pot, one should not speak facetiously of them, either. The temptation is nevertheless great. Bette Davis ...

Kill Back Better...

This isn't a Chicago story. It's a Democratic Party story. Kim Foxx, the state's attorney for Cook County and darling of MSNBC, has managed to increase murders in Chicago to astounding levels even at a time when we're all getting used to a...

The Nobel Prize and the Cocaine Gold Rush...

This week's awarding of the (quasi-) Nobel Prize in economics to David Card for, in part, an immigration study that I definitively undermined way back in 2006 raises a nagging question in my mind: As cancel culture gets ever more pervasive, are my bet...

Brain Drain: Gain or Bane?...

Last week's column covered America's ongoing march toward a dystopic antiwhite apartheid from the perspective of quisling whites. This week, I'll stick with the apartheid theme, but from a different angle. Let's take a trip back to Nazi Ge...

Living in the Age of Jim Snow...

A basic rule of strategy, one of the first things you are taught when learning strategy, is that you must conceal your plans from the opponent. If you are deposing a witness, for example, you do not tell opposing counsel how you hope to trick the witness ...

Join the Club...

Around twenty years or so ago I had point for match point on a perfect grass court in Fort Belvedere. We'd been playing for close to two hours. I remember hitting a topspin backhand down the line and going to the net and seeing my ball just miss the t...

They're Not Defending Their Best...

Last Friday, two elected congressional Democrats, Reps. Cori Bush and Emanuel Cleaver II, wrote to Gov. Mike Parson of Missouri demanding that he pardon a triple-murderer on death row because, I quote: "Like slavery and lynching did before it, the dea...

Rational Treasure...

In Steven Pinker's latest book, Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters, the best-selling cognitive scientist comes out, perhaps unsurprisingly, in favor of rationality. Since the 1990s, Pinker has been a leading spokesman for a s...

Earth-Salter Apartheid...

Sometime in the early 1990s a friend suggested that I watch a movie called The Handmaid's Tale. I was vaguely aware of the book...I knew it was authored by some ugly old bat from Canada, and honestly you couldn't have paid me enough to read it. Bu...

The Seeds of Moderate Defeat...

When the Bolsheviks seized control of the Russian state during the October uprising, it set off what would come to be known as the Russian civil war. It lasted from 1917 to 1923, when the Bolsheviks finally crushed their opposition. That is the most overl...

Empty Frames...

When I was still practicing as a doctor I believed, always mistakenly, that I had now heard every variety of human folly. However, even the dullest person can be highly original in the art of self-destruction, which is infinite in its variety of means: On...

The Eclipse of Europe...

For centuries up to and including the 20th, Europe seemed the central pivot of world history. Then came the Great Civil War of the West, our Thirty Years' War (1914-1945), where all of the great European powers — Britain, France, Germany, Italy,...

Aborting Trumpism...

Sometimes you wish that a certain group of people were never taught a certain phrase. In 1997, when O.J. Simpson ran afoul of a civil trial, the geniuses in the press decided to teach ghetto L.A. the term "double jeopardy," because provoking under...

Everyday Lunacy...

The old adage about there being a fine line between genius and madness is popular mostly because it allows average people to accept being average. They may not be smart, but they are not wrestling with their sanity. The image of the mad scientist flatters...
