Handouts Are Killing Healthcare

Shortly before President Trump took office, I made a recommendation for how he could best proceed on a number of issues1. Notably, I did not include healthcare in my proposal. The exclusion of healthcare was not due to my general opposition to multi-issue or ‘omnibus’ legislation2, but rather due to a recognition that healthcare is such a complex and heated issue that it, essentially, must be addressed separately. I am not, however, going to advance a proposal for addressing our numerous and significant healthcare-related issues; undoubtedly, (some of) my colleagues will have already done so by the time this article…

Nationalism or a Slow Death

What comes after Trump? This is a question that many in the US are asking themselves. At least many on the Right. If you believe that the Left are asking themselves this question, then allow me to disabuse you of that mistaken belief. The Left know precisely what they are going to do after Trump. If you believe that what we have heretofore seen has been radical, then you are utterly unprepared for what the Left have planned. On the Right side of the political divide, we have no real leadership and no real direction. Many are still trying to…

Beware the Dragon

In my earlier article this week, I focused on the political and cultural aspects of the US relationship with Europe. However, there is another party very much interested in the outcome of the ongoing struggle between the forces of order and chaos in the West. That party is China. The problem of China has been allowed to fester for so long that there are no truly good solutions left. We do, however, have a number of options when choosing how to manage or how to confront China. Our central choice is this: Do we allow China to rise and become…

The Dangers of Pond Scum

For many years, Americans have wished to believe themselves separated from and therefore unaffected by events in Europe. However, this has never been and will never be the case. Events in Europe have a way of hopping across the pond. We are, to some degree, isolated here on our own continent, but we are by no means as isolated as we believe; what applies to geography seldom applies to politics and culture. When World War I broke out, men from the Federal Government visited a newly-constructed, Gothic cathedral in Orange, California. These men were not seeking God. I do not…

Man’s Higher Purpose

This article is not intended for women. When I say “you”, I am addressing men individually or collectively; when I say “we”, “us”, or “our”, I am including myself; but in neither case am I addressing or including any woman. I will, undoubtedly, address the other half of this issue at some point in the future, but not today, not in this article. There is an order to things. Creation exists as and each creature exists within a hierarchy. God is higher than man and man is higher than the animals. Christ is the head of the Church and man…

How Orange County Was Lost

All elections are unique, and all offer a wealth of information to the discerning observer. However, any student1 of politics will readily confess that just as some election cycles are more important than others, so, too, are some electoral districts more important than others. There are districts where the outcome is foreordained (and such districts can, generally, be ignored), and there are others where the outcome is hotly contested and the results viewed as signs or predictions. There is also a third type of district: the bellwether district. The outcomes of elections in bellwether districts are rightly seen as microcosmic…

Too Many Coincidences to Ignore

What is genocide? Quite naturally, we must first answer this foundational question if we are to move on to this topic. I am going to decline to engage the legal literate in this space (though I *will* reaffirm my long-held position that what is happening in the West meets both the UN and the US) definitions of “genocide”, I am going to propose, and then work with, a philosophical definition, one I believe to be coherent with the Moral Law: Genocide is the deliberate and systematic elimination of a human subgroup qua a human subgroup, regardless of the methods employed…

Embrace White Pride or Suffer Genocide?

I was tempted, at least initially, to begin by saying that I am not, in fact, “pro-White”, but it would be at least as misleading to advance that position as it is, to my mind, to advance the position that I am “pro-White”. With the foregoing in mind, I would like to reformulate the call of the question to “pro-European” or “pro-Western” (as I consider these terms to be equivalent, I intend to use them here, as elsewhere, interchangeably). I advance this reformulation because I find a number of problems inhere in “pro-White”: First, I am not, in fact, white….
