No Saigon ‘75 For Us

American involvement in another war theater ends. No victory. It just ends. American does not win wars, nor do we outright lose them with definitive peace treaties with pomp and circumstance. We do lose long term and in the slow bleed of the process. America is pulling out of Afghanistan, but there will be no…

Four Americas, One State

The lines demarcating American tribes are hardening. In some ways they do not seem to be so firm. The Atlantic allowed George Packer to write on this phenomenon. It is a nice enlightened liberal view of the political arena for 2021. It is also a Boomer hand-waving of the problems the current configuration of America…

A Shift On The Right

The post-Trump right is disorganized right now but a Trumpian policy set seems to be forming. The economic nationalism and populism he pitched seems here to stay. A deeper shift is occurring that has gone unnoticed. The pundit class has begun to call things anti-white. This is a noticeable shift that has occurred with no…

Shock Doctrine Comes Home

Whether on the streets or on social media, no one can miss the fried mental status of Americans. Some of us have carried on with normal lives during covid lockdowns or the scare, but we see millions living lives of fear and hysteria. It does seem overblown. Using a framework from a pre-financial crisis pop…

Under The Information Ocean

Conspiracy theories flood the discourse. They were once the topic for crazy newsletters with rabid followers. Now any subculture or political faction engages in what would formerly be called conspiracy theory research. In 2018, Under the Silver Lake debuted with little media push. It grossed barely any money. It did capture the world Americans find…

Who Is Buying Homes?

The housing market is hot. Homes last a day on the market. Buyers must bid above listing. If you bid 20% over listing, you likely will lose out. Year over year gains are insane in some markets. There’s also a huge unemployment problem. Who is buying all of these homes? It’s not just the little…

The Childless Western Leader Trend

A curious phenomenon has been noticed by those of us on the right. It is the childless Western leader trend. Biden is a figurehead, but Kamala, who takes the calls with foreign leaders, fits the barren mold. It is actually amazing to see it listed out but should come as no surprise. This is the…

No One Looks

Netflix churns out awful woke content. Every show is woke appropriate. The one refuge seems to be documentaries. Sure, there are plenty of left wing framing and content, but occasionally something can slip through with minimal progressive flavoring. Made You Look is one such documentary. I recommend watching this little window into the world of…

We Need New Watchdogs

In the last year, the talk of a new Cold War has grown. America must face the Chinese threat. It is not just economic and military power, but China offers a different ideology that is an alternative to woke capital. This threat even inspired a new Long Telegram (The Longer Telegram) paying homage to Kennan’s…

Of Course Bitcoin Will Be Targeted

New administration and new rumblings appear. Bitcoin is inefficient. Bitcoin is used by criminals. The treasuries across the world all speak of a digital dollar, euro, or yuan. How is that any different from what the FED does now? It might just be code for eliminating cash bills, but then why would they also bring…
