There is an anecdote in Augustine’s great work ‘City of God’ of a conversation between Alexander the Great and a famous pirate named Diomedes. It was written 700 years after the events were supposed to have taken place, by a man living in North Africa under the Roman Empire just before the lights of civilisation went out permanently there.
In the exchange, Alexander asks Diomedes why he plagues the seas. The pirate contemptuously responds, ‘The same reason as you do the world, but while I operate with one boat, I am called a robber; but since you have a great fleet, you are called emperor.’
This exchange goes to the heart of what makes governments legitimate.… Read the rest
The establishment media are scrambling these days. Not only are they floundering financially as the internet destroys their business model, they are also losing their century-long control over the narratives that people use to interpret the world. This is the true power of media – to frame the perceptions that the people of a nation use to determine reality. It is the power to direct the herd, to write the history of the future beforehand and determine the boundaries of the Overton Window of socially acceptable speech, and therefore thought.
In democratic political systems, this might be the greatest power of all.… Read the rest

Some troubling events have been occurring on the Korean peninsula recently. The global anti-establishment rebellion has manifested in that country as an uprising against President Park Geunhye’s corrupt regime and the personal influence of a Rasputin-type figure who seemed to control the presidency indirectly for the benefit of herself and her family. This is happening while that cruel piglet dictator Kim Jongun is knocking off his brother and making even China nervous about what he’ll do next. Into that volatile mix is the American attempt to deploy THAAD anti-missile batteries to protect against northern aggression.… Read the rest

In a new low this week even for the liberal media, Buzzfeed, CNN and other establishment outlets have published unfounded and unsupported fake news about President-elect Trump’s ties to Russia. It is clear that this scandalous hack job was timed in order to derail the president-elect’s first press conference since the election. This agenda was further revealed by the outrageous conduct of CNN’s Jim Acosta during the press conference, repeatedly interrupting and shouting at the president-elect while he was speaking. Never before has a president-elect been spoken to in this way in such a public forum.… Read the rest

Evidence has been emerging over the past week that the anti-Trump protests and riots disrupting cities across America are not spontaneous or grassroots in their origin. It has come to light rather that these sometimes violent and disruptive demonstrations are being organized by a nationwide network of non-profit organizations with links to billionaire financier George Soros.
Ads posted by Soros-linked liberal groups have been appearing on Craigslist sites across the nation offering payment to participate in the anti-Trump protests. President-elect Trump himself stated during his interview with 60 Minutes that professional protesters were behind the riots.… Read the rest
Since the French Revolution financial oligarchs and their establishment representatives have been pushing to centralize global control under one authority. Each war, revolution and depression has been used in order to bring them closer to achieving their goal. This is more than just a quest for absolute power by a greedy internationalist elite. It is a religious project which desires the complete enslavement and moral corruption of mankind.
After each major conflict of modern history, we have seen the rulers involved come together and pledge to give up national sovereignty in order to secure peace. This is always a deception. The centralization of power away from national governments during the twentieth century was not driven by the will of the people or to improve security.… Read the rest

There is a shift in the wind in the West. Shibboleths that have stood for generations are being rocked by the grubby hands of the peasantry and the core doctrines and taboos through which the establishment has ruled the minds of men are being flouted openly. The respectables are becoming more shrill as the deplorables become more bold. While we have not yet stormed the strongholds of progressivist thought, change is coming. We smell blood.
Is it possible in the current year that the shackles of leftism in the West are being broken?… Read the rest
One of the bedrock falsehoods of leftist thinking is that cultures, races, genders, individuals have no innate differences. For the leftist, we’re all the same on the inside. After the horrors of World War II, the left cleverly convinced a traumatised public that peace had eluded humanity throughout history because of our adherence to arbitrary cultural and religious distinctions between individuals and groups. The history of postwar globalism has been the use of international supernational organisations such as the UN, IMF, think tanks and propaganda to advance this false narrative. As the stupidity of this belief system is incrementally revealed in the bang of each new jihadi going to his virgins, the indoctrinated masses become more and more dogmatic in asserting the delusion.… Read the rest
