• Jair Bolsonaro Survives To Second Round In Brazil

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 3rd 2022 11:04am EDT (Archive)

    Over the past few weeks, the consensus in the media has been that Jair Bolsonaro was finished in Brazil and that Lula da Silva was going to outright win the presidency in a landslide by 15 points. Yesterday, Lula only topped Bolsonaro by 5 points and will have to win the runoff on October 30. […]

  • New York Times: As New Term Starts, Supreme Court Poised to Resume Rightward Push

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 2nd 2022 10:30am EDT (Archive)

    I’m feeling bullish. Last year, I was far too cynical about the Supreme Court. I didn’t think that the 6-3 conservative majority would make much of a difference. As always, I expected John Roberts would prevail in the end and that Roe would be upheld in some face saving decision that preserved Mississippi’s abortion law […]

    I have a positive view of Christian nationalism. Just look at the “trans” issue. California has become the first sanctuary state for “trans youth” and will strip parents from other states of custody of their own children in order to provide them with “gender-affirming care.” California state courts will assert “temporary emergency jurisdiction” over “trans […]

    As Vladimir Putin said in his speech yesterday, Western liberals have embraced outright Satanism. He was probably thinking of California Democrats who are leading the charge toward “progress.” National Review: “On Thursday, California governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation that would facilitate child gender-transition tourism from other states. The bill, spearheaded by Democratic state senator Scott Wiener, aims to […]

  • Jimmy Dore: Chris Hayes’ Audience Turns On Him For Telling Truth About Ukraine

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 1st 2022 9:55am EDT

    Democrats are united behind the war with Russia. Every single Democrat in Congress voted for the $40 billion in aid for Ukraine in May and the $12 billion for Ukraine last week.

  • Axios: U.S. Grapples With Risk Of Nuclear War Over Ukraine

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 1st 2022 9:07am EDT (Archive)

    If something isn’t done soon to stop the endless flow of weapons to Ukraine and the constant meddling in the war which the Pentagon is ratcheting up behind the scenes, the nukes are going to start flying. Axios: “The U.S. and its NATO allies are urgently grappling with a question that once seemed to have […]

  • Biden Administration Announces Additional $1.1 Billion In Military Spending On Ukraine

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 30th 2022 6:25pm EDT (Archive)

    I believe this is something separate. Reuters: “WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. will provide an additional $1.1 billion in aid to Ukraine, with funding for about 18 more advanced rocket systems and other weapons to counter drones that Russia has been using against Ukrainian troops, the Biden administration announced Wednesday. The latest package is being […]

    As long as it takes … CNBC: “The U.S. Senate voted 72 to 25 on Thursday to pass legislation funding the federal government through mid-December — days before an impending government shutdown. The bill, which now goes to the House where it’s expected to quickly pass, includes an additional $12 billion in aid for Ukraine, $1 […]

  • Jonah Goldberg: Slouching Toward The Old World

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 30th 2022 9:14am EDT (Archive)

    I’ve also been reflecting on how much American conservatism has changed. Just the other day, I pointed out how rapidly American conservatives are forgetting their former ideology and embracing generic nationalism and populism. The applause that was recently showered on the victories of “conservatives” like Giorgia Meloni and the Sweden Democrats was unthinkable in the […]
