Imperial Tilt

Imperial Tilt

The Imperial U.S. Government (IUSG) and its “greatest ally,” the state of Israel, are in full psychotic & psychopathic Tilt. Together, these governments are confronting the entire planet as they reinforce each other’s fundamental and inverse mythologies. Tilt is a phenomenon in which agents lose control of their emotions and begin making bad decision after bad decision. It is commonly associated with poker, which is fitting since our imperial elites are gambling with our civilization and the very existence of the human species. The U.S. government began tilting hard during the American...

Canceling Taylor Swift Concerts Won’t Uplift California’s Workers

Canceling Taylor Swift Concerts Won’t Uplift California’s Workers

California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis is concerned about the hotel workers in her state. Their days are too long, their lives are too short, and they aren’t even paid “decent wages” for their services. Here’s what Kounalakis did about it: she asked Taylor Swift to cancel six concerts in the Golden State. Kounalakis endorsed the Unite Here Local 11 “Open Letter From Hotel Housekeepers to Taylor Swift” at the end of July. The letter said, in part: “We are hotel housekeepers across Los Angeles. We make beds, clean bathrooms, and take care of every guest need. Your shows make our...

Challenging Objectivism’s Unobjective Insults

Challenging Objectivism’s Unobjective Insults

During a July 10, 2023, broadcast of The Yaron Brook Show, Chairman of the Board of the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) Yaron Brook accused American historian Tom Woods of being a “moral subjectivist,” a “religionist,” an “anarchist,” “pro-Putin” and an “American hater.” Woods serves on the board of directors of the Libertarian Institute and hosts the popular and influential libertarian podcast The Tom Woods Show. Brook’s rhetorical attack on him might seem merely absurd, but these are serious charges. They demand a response. Being an American hater in America is one of the worst transgressions one...

Storming the Beaches at Waco

Storming the Beaches at Waco

One of the most infamous standoffs in American history ended when employees of the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team (and possibly the Army’s Delta Force) launched a tank and gas attack on the Branch Davidian’s Mount Carmel religious center and communal home northwest of Waco, Texas. After a few hours of toxic “riot control” gas being pumped into the church, Mount Carmel became engulfed in flames. A few people escaped, but 79 people who lived and worshipped Christ died there, including pregnant women and children. Waco revealed the pathological nature of America’s imperial psyche. CNN News Anchor...

Our Postmodern Empire

Our Postmodern Empire

The American Empire is engaged in one of the greatest rhetorical cons of the past century, one that involves an endless differentiation and deferral of meaning. Its “post-colonial” warfare is therefore downright postmodern. Many conservatives believe there is a plot to destroy Western Civilization emanating from the French Parisian Postmodernists. Jacques Derrida is their central villain, corrupting the youth with obscurantist nonsense. For example, Derrida wrote: “Contrary to the metaphysical, dialectical, and 'Hegelian' interpretation of the economic movement of différance, we must admit a...

The Duke in the Shining Attack Helicopter

The Duke in the Shining Attack Helicopter

A January 6 CNN headline read, "Prince Harry criticized by UK military figures—and Taliban—after claiming he killed 25 fighters in Afghanistan." Dear God, I thought. Had Henry Charles Albert David, aka Prince Harry, succumbed to the type of war zone fabrications made infamous by Hieronymus Karl Friedrich von Münchhausen? Had the man with the “titles and the styles” (including The Duke of Sussex) gone barmy? Had the co-star of Netflix’s Harry & Meghan watched one too many war movies? But then I recalled the iconic 2013 video of the “dramatic moment” Prince Harry ran from an interview at...

A Tribute to the U.S. Marine Corps

A Tribute to the U.S. Marine Corps

A recent United States Marine Corps recruitment advertisement tells us: “When there are battles to win for America’s future, there is one constant: Marines.” Despite the advert being a minute-long, propagandizing call to imperial action, this line rings true. And it highlights why we are morally obligated to support Bring Our Troops Home. To be sure, the advert is mostly revealingly deceptive. It opens with a crumbling coastal cityscape reminiscent of the 2010 film Inception. Perhaps the advert filmmakers were merely fans of the Leonardo DiCaprio epic and had fun referencing it. But...

Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty

Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty

Americans today have “freedom” to be fleeced, groped, injected, harassed, surveilled, vilified, disarmed, beaten, detained, and maybe shot by federal agents. From hapless homeowners hit by SWAT raids to pandemic lockdowns pointlessly paralyzing lives, government...
