  • Sluggish recovery from Hurricane Maria reignites calls for Puerto Rico’s statehood, independence

    Ernesto Davila Marin was in elementary school when rebellion interrupted class. As he left the schoolhouse that October day, black smoke rose from the town center where nationalists had set Jayuya ablaze, shooting police officers and declaring the independent republic of Puerto Rico from a rooftop. In the struggle for sovereignty from American colonial rule, Puerto Rican independence fighters staged uprisings in nearly a dozen cities that day in 1950 and later attempted to assassinate President Harry S. Truman. They held the central mountain city for three days until U.S. Air Force bombers buzzed over the emerald peaks packed with...

    A study that ranked all 50 states from “most patriotic” to “least patriotic” also found that, overall, red states were more patriotic than blue states (states were considered “red” or “blue” based on how they voted in the 2016 presidential election). Using data from the 2016 election and several additional sources, WalletHub measured the impact of 13 different indicators, from voter engagement to volunteer rates and the percentage of the population that joined the military.

    WASHINGTON – Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz said the world is “questioning the moral leadership of America” and he urged the public to reject nationalism. ---- In my view, as a private citizen who travels the world, perhaps more than many of you here, there are real questions and real concerns and real doubts about the strength and conviction and moral courage of the United States of America. The Atlantic Council stands for relationship-building, trust and confidence among our allies. This is not a time for isolationism, for nationalism,” he added. ---- Schultz continued, “This is a time, as we...

    < snip of beginning> Goldberg’s answer is so simple it seems too easy, and yet so difficult it seems unachievable. We need to teach and experience gratitude for what we have been given, which means reacquainting ourselves with the philosophical and scientific roots of the Miracle and then passing them on to our posterity. So much is arrayed against this effort, and yet we Americans, we tribal Americans, do long to belong to the American tribe. In his pathbreaking book, Goldberg makes it clear all we need do to find our place is to understand that we are the beneficiaries...
  • The Memo: Nationalists gain upper hand in Trump’s White House

    The America Firsters are on the rise. That’s the lesson some people in President Trump’s world are drawing from recent personnel moves. In this telling, the populists and nationalists who powered Trump’s election are regaining a foothold as more establishment-friendly figures are marginalized. But even as those developments please some of Trump’s most enthusiastic backers, they unnerve critics who fear what the president might do in the absence of more measured advice. High-profile names have exited in recent months, including former national security adviser H.R. McMaster and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. And now, two less-famous names are causing...

    If you oppose globalism in any way, you must be some kind of Nazi. At least that’s the message I’m getting from the slavishly pro-globalist press. It’s long been my suspicion that this extended, cringeworthy, and now years-long display of wantonly reckless public diaper-shitting known as “The Resistance” to Donald Trump—which has tweaked the dial all the way up to Full Screech Mode ever since he declared his candidacy in June of 2015—is nothing more than a full-on panic attack by global elites whose hegemonic grip over American affairs is finally being threatened by a politician who’s too headstrong, and...
  • Italy: Eurosceptic Populists Win, Mainstream Parties Lose

    Italy has been hit by a historic political earthquake. Sunday's election results speak for themselves: the two populist parties (the Five Star Movement and Lega Nord) have won, while the establishment-mainstream parties have been all but wiped out. The mostly leftist Five Star Movement (started by Beppe Grillo) took home more than 30 percent of the vote. Although progressive in most of its views, FSM is also eurosceptic, making its resounding victory a major problem for Brussels. The Five Star Movement's brother-of-another-mother, the right-wing Lega Nord (Northern League), also performed extremely well with around 17 percent of the vote, making...

    In a surprise overtime victory in the finals of the Olympic men's hockey tournament, the Russians defeated Germany, 4-3. But the Russians were not permitted to have their national anthem played or flag raised, due to a past doping scandal. So, the team ignored the prohibition and sang out the Russian national anthem over the sounds of the Olympic anthem. One recalls the scene in "Casablanca," where French patrons of Rick's saloon stood and loudly sang the "La Marseillaise" to drown out the "Die Wacht am Rhein" being sung by a table of German officers. When the combined North-South Korean...

    I happened onto a piece by Bill Kristol in The Weekly Standard, wherein he links to "a short, powerful piece in National Review" by Rick Brookhiser, who "concludes that 'the conservative movement is no more. Its destroyers are Donald Trump and his admirers.'" I somewhat get the sentiment -- or at least I used to -- because during the GOP primaries, I fleetingly entertained a similar concern that Trump, whom I didn't consider a conservative, might undermine the conservative movement in the long run if elected. Presumably trying to console Brookhiser, Kristol writes: "Movements grow old. They eventually die....

    Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters attended a Nation of Islam convention where the hate group’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, defended Palestinian suicide bombers. The convention, which took place in California in 2002, is just the latest tie to emerge between Democrats and the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist group known for being viciously anti-Semitic.

    The Occidental Observer ^ | Feb 14, 2018 | Hewitt E. Moore
    After all, freedom of speech is one of the pillars of “White supremacy.” Which, ironically enough, enables people like Mr Blow to publicly call the most powerful man in the world racial epithets on a daily basis. The fact is that if Mr Blow couldn’t write about “racism,” he wouldn’t have anything to write about. In reality, the rhetoric surrounding race has been hijacked and weaponized for political gain by those with an anti-White agenda. A word that has transcended its literal definition and evolved into a slur used relentlessly against non-conforming Whites as a modus operandi for character assassination....

    Suspected school shooter Nikolas Cruz trained as a member of a white nationalist militia, according to the group’s leader. Republic of Florida leader Jordan Jereb told the Anti Defamation League that the 19-year-old — who allegedly slaughtered 17 people at his former high school Wednesday — had participated in one or more training drills with his group, and had carpooled with other members to Tallahassee for the exercises. Jereb says the group’s goal is to make Florida a white ethno-state. He spoke with the ADL after apparent ROF members mentioned Cruz’s membership on the web forum 4chan. He claims he...

    The progressive billionaire speculator George Soros has said he will ‘fight back’ against the “dominant ideology” of nationalism, whilst admitting that favoured globalist project the European Union is “on the verge of a breakdown”. Wistfully writing that Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) once ‘epitomised the optimism about the spread of Western-style democracy’ after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Financial Times described the scrutiny the global progressive body is experiencing amidst a wave of patriotism and populism and the ‘wilting’ attraction of the leftist agenda. Soros, alluding to the collapse of the USSR, told the left-liberal newspaper: “It’s déjà...

    Over the weekend, Tommy Robinson was in Warsaw, Poland to attend the country's Independence Day march - a celebration of Poland's 99 years of independence from Russia. While the mainstream media claimed that 60,000 far-right Nazis took to the streets preaching racism and division, the reality of the march was much different. Tommy Robinson joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss his firsthand experience in Poland, the mainstream media’s distortion of the independence celebration, the suffering of communism producing a gratitude for freedom and the state of the European Union.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYTsRpstpBY

    Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. She stated it was nice “being in the United Kingdom,” and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling. Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better. She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmother’s hometown...

    Rarely is the question asked: Is New York ready for a white male political leader? But with a white man widely expected to be re-elected as mayor (Bill de Blasio), a white man as governor (Andrew M. Cuomo), a white man as attorney general (Eric T. Schneiderman), and white men as city and state comptroller (Scott M. Stringer and Thomas P. DiNapoli), race has emerged as a flash point in the elbows-out battle to lead the City Council for the next four years. The speakership contest, for arguably the second most powerful elected post in city government, has raged behind...
