Paying the Danegeld

I suspect most of you have heard that Chancellor  Merkel has a plan to pay the immigrants she invited to Germany to go away again  Joshuapundit wrote about it here. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing new elections and is not doing at all well in the polls. Quite simply, the Muslim refugees she imported […]

Greece and the Folly of Trying to Solve an Overspending Problem with Tax Increases

I’ve put forth lots of arguments against tax increases, mostly focusing on why higher tax rates will depress growth and encourage more government spending. Today, let’s look at a practical, real-world example. I wrote a column for The Hill looking at why Greece is a fiscal and economic train wreck. I have lots of interesting […]

The Anglo-Saxons are Awake!

Blaming the responsible   And yes, they are fundamentally unserious     Steve Hayward took a look at the beginning of the Berkely riots. Here is what he saw Berkeley still has rent control, but it hasn’t stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from living rent-free in the heads of the left. So in another triumph for his ironic […]

Trump’s Immigration Order ≠ Hitler

From Bookworm Room. Long and well worth your time. The Progressives on my real-me Facebook feed are having a collective mental collapse in response to President Trump’s new immigration order. Typically, their behavior is predicated, not upon actual facts, but upon media propaganda and their own factual and historic ignorance. This post will rebut the […]

Centralization and the Decline of Europe

The famous French diplomat Charles Maurice de Talleyrand supposedly said that a weakness of the Bourbon monarchs was that they learned nothing and forgot nothing. If so, the genetic descendants of the Bourbons are now in charge of Europe. But before explaining why, let’s first establish that Europe is in trouble. I’ve made that point […]

Mrs. May Goes to Washington

And so, Mrs. May is here. Came over yesterday, and will meet the President today. That’s as it should be, she’s first, the leader of our oldest friends, and strongest ally, and our cousins, so kind of a family reunion. Last night she spoke at the Republican Congressional winter retreat, the first world leader to […]

Ulv Galiciefarer’s Tomb?

Well, we’re going to try not to deal with politics every day, because it’s early, but we will cover things that catch our attention, as always. But meantime… This sort of stuff always catches my attention, even if Danish is not Norwegian. From The History Blog. Danish archaeologist Bjarne Henning Nielsen, curator at the Vesthimmerlands […]

A Bit of American Leadership

Sometimes that’s all it takes to change the world. Recently, Paul Bonecelli, wrote in The Federalist: President-elect Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson is clear evidence that Trump wants to change U.S. foreign policy and its posture in the world. For him, arguably no other choice would do but of an outsider with a record of setting […]

Video Saturday

So, it’s Saturday. How about a video round up, of some others views. Let’s start with Pat Condell   A bit harshly stated, perhaps, but I can’t say that I disagree with him. The Right Angle guys have something to say, as well.   And a bit on fake news, and where it comes from. […]

von Richtofen Day

Well, we missed this one yesterday, but GreatSatan’sGirlfriend reminded us. Gott Mit Uns! 100 years ago today, Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen was awarded Imperial Deutschland’s highest military award – Pour le Mérite – often informally referred to as the “Blue Max.”  Pour le Mérite was awarded strictly as a recognition of extraordinary personal achievement, […]

National Sovereignty Rising

Well, we all made it through 2016 for better or worse. It was quite a year, with many political things roiling the waters. A lot of them were merely personal, and of no account to the rest of us. Especially for us Americans, who have dealt with a president for 8 years who is a […]

Some Thoughts on the Return of European Anti-Americanism

From Gatestone: European anti-Americanism — which was on the wane during the presidency of Barack Obama, who steered the United States on a course of globalism rather than nationalism — is back with a vengeance. Europe’s media establishment has greeted Donald Trump’s election victory with a vitriol not seen since the George W. Bush presidency, […]

Time for Liberation

One of the more interesting things here in the last year is that our Dutch readership has increased to the point that it often is higher than the UK, and occasionally approaches that of our US readership. It’s interesting, and I have no real handle on why, although you are certainly welcome here. This is, of […]

Friday Roundup

Cleaning out some tabs, interesting stuff that we’ve been hoarding.   Well, yeah, he makes some sense to me, at that, From Melanie Phillips: The hand-wringing by western politicians and commentators over the appalling humanitarian catastrophe in Aleppo reveals something far worse even than the nauseating virtue-signalling of pointlessly blaming themselves for having decided not […]

Germans Leaving Germany ‘In Droves’

I’ve been seeing stuff like this off and on most of the year and I see no reason to believe it isn’t true. After all, America got its big surge of German immigrants when the King of Prussia decided to force a merger of the Lutheran and Reformed churches in Germany. From Gatestone Institute … […]

Merkel Backs Crackdown on Free Speech On Social Media Sites

One of the things I have noticed in the last few months, as a percentage, people other than Americans and British (especially Niederlanders) have increased rather dramatically. That pleases me, and I hope they are finding what they want. Since, as far as I know, none of them have commented, I just assume that they […]

The Year of Political Revolution |

The title comes from a talk that Nigel Farage gave at David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2016 Restoration Weekend, to me it’s appropriate. It seems to me that what we have seen this year is the incipient conservative counter-revolution taking shape, first Brexit, then Trump, tomorrow…well who knows. As I said again the other day, the Anglo-Saxons […]

Trumphalist Friday

Ok, I’ve been serious long enough, let’s just relax, and reflect on what we’ve done this year, nothing less (I think) than end America’s twin dynasties. Wait till we really get going!       I said in my post-election article that America leads again. I think it will be so, as the European elections […]

Europe’s Dismal Future

A couple of days ago, I wrote about Clemens Schneider’s hypothesis, presented at the European Students for Liberty regional conference in Maastricht, that 1356 was a very important year in European history because of two events that promoted decentralization and federalism. I also participated in the event and was asked to speak about “Ensuring Sustainable […]
