• Putin speech on the war in Ukraine as a war against Western hegemony and an existential crisis for Russia

    The Occidental Observer - Oct 2nd 2022 6:10pm EDT (Archive)

    On September 3o, Vladimir Putin delivered a speech at a signing of treaties on the accession  of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia. It is a full-throated condemnation of the West, its morals (e.g., transgenderism) and its aggression against the rest of the world, along with a defense […]

  • Child-Mutilation is a Happy Day: Three Jovial Jewish activists Promote the Poison of Translunacy

    The Occidental Observer - Oct 2nd 2022 9:25am EDT (Archive)

    One golden day in late June 2022 I was walking my Saluki Zenobia by a canal near the great English city of Birmingham. Birds were singing, dragonflies were zooming, meadowsweet was sweetly scenting the air. I passed a moored canal-boat, freshly painted and gleaming in the sun. On its side, in elegant white script, ran […]

  • Igor Shafarevich and the Jews

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 30th 2022 9:05am EDT (Archive)

    One way to become an unwitting dissident is to assume that the truth will set everyone free. Igor Shafarevich, in his 1989 essay “Russophobia” (my review here), spoke the truth about the overwhelmingly negative impact the Jewish Left has had on Russia, and he received merciless defamation from the Jewish Left in return. Much of […]

  • Venezuela’s Welfare Has Run Out. Now They Want Ours

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 29th 2022 10:55am EDT (Archive)

    The massive news coverage of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “political stunt” of sending 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard reminds me of the media’s “political stunt” of referring to illegals as “legal asylum-seekers.” Number one: They broke into our country. They’re illegal aliens. Number two: All asylum claims are frauds. Every single one. Asylum is nothing […]

  • Giorgia Meloni as Italian PM

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 28th 2022 12:36pm EDT (Archive)

    The rise of Giorgia Meloni and her coalition of the right has struck fear into the hearts of the EU and the left everywhere. God forbid that a political movement arise that would challenge globalist dogma. As Ursula von der Leyen, head of the European Commission said before the election, said before the election, “If […]

  • The Wickedness of Whiteness: Leftist Minority-Worship Preaches the Innate Evil of Whites

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 25th 2022 11:07am EDT (Archive)

    What’s the connection between cakes and leftism? Until last week, I would have found it impossible to give a good answer to that question. Then I picked up a new book by the British mathematician Ian Stewart (born 1945) and read the following: The classic example [of fair division], from which everything else flows, is […]

  • Biden Commits U.S. to War for Taiwan

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 24th 2022 10:08am EDT (Archive)

      Taiwan has no mutual security treaty with the United States, nor any Article 5 war guarantee that obligates us to defend the island. The U.S.-Taiwan security pact of the 1950s was abrogated in 1979, when Jimmy Carter recognized Beijing as the legitimate government of China. If China invades Taiwan to unify it with the […]

  • Schooling and Education Amid the Siege: A Perspective

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 23rd 2022 11:01am EDT (Archive)

    This writing sketches out a perspective on schooling and education (they are different things; more on that later on) for your consideration, including what, if anything, to do about it. Me: Retired after a career in schooling, first as a high school teacher and later a professor of education.  Late in life, the birth of […]

  • Show Us the Way, Rich Liberals!

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 22nd 2022 10:50am EDT (Archive)

        It’s been awe-inspiring to see the bottomless generosity of Martha’s Vineyard residents after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent them 50 illegal immigrants from Venezuela last week.      WE LOVE YOU, YOU’VE ENRICHED OUR LIVES, NOW GET THE F–K OUT OF HERE. Unlike angry, White MAGA voters upset about their towns being flooded with illegals, Vineyard residents would […]
