  • Trump’s Nationalism Is Consistent With Catholic Social Doctrine

    Catholic voters know better than their bishops, it would seem. Leading American bishops have complained about the “harshness” of Trump’s campaign rhetoric and called for an end to deportation of aliens until the “broken” system can be fixed. Yet, despite this opposition from the Church’s hierarchy, Trump won 52% of the Catholic vote (to Hillary’s 45%), a historic margin for a Republican. How to explain this contradiction? Real simple. The laity get it better than the bishops. Trump’s nationalism is fully consistent with Catholic social doctrine as it has developed in the last 126 years. It is the leaders of...

    Washington Post reporter Cleve Wootson was recently given the responsibility of reporting on a lawsuit in which I am involved. The story he was assigned to write is actually quite simple. A California university unconstitutionally denied a student group’s request for funding to host a conservative speaker (me) on their campus. The decision to deny funding was a blatant case of viewpoint discrimination that is supported by a mountain of evidence. Thus, Wootson had an easy story to write if he simply stuck to the facts. Instead, his article wound up being a masterpiece of bad journalism.Wootson begins his article...

    Transnational liberalism breeds resentments and anxieties that are only beginning to surface across the developed world. Paris Last Sunday President Trump stood before Muslim leaders in Riyadh and declared: “America is a sovereign nation, and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture. We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship.” Amid the journalistic uproar that greets nearly everything Mr. Trump says, few noted the connection he made between these two concepts: We are sovereign, and we...

    Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg choked up while speaking about an illegal immigrant “DREAMer” during his Harvard commencement speech and declared that the fight against the forces of nationalism “is the struggle of our time.” snip He then said, though, that the struggle of our time will be between “the forces of freedom, openness and global community against the forces of authoritarianism, isolationism and nationalism.” “Forces for the flow of knowledge, trade and immigration against those who would slow them down,” he continued. “This is not a battle of nations, it’s a battle of ideas.” Zuckerberg then choked up as he...

    French voters will finally be able to vote for a new president today. They've suffered for years under the less than inspiring leadership of socialist Francois Hollande, but today they take the first step to replacing him with someone else -- someone better. Or not, of course. After all, although two candidates -- Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen -- are considered to be "conservative," they are not exactly the favorites to win the election. In Fillon's case, even proceeding to the second round may prove impossible. The first round of France's presidential election only serves to separate the top...

    In his speech to Congress on December 7, 1915, Woodrow Wilson made the following point about hyphenated Americans: There are citizens of the United States, I blush to admit, born under other flags but welcomed under our generous naturalization laws to the full freedom and opportunity of America, who have poured the poison of disloyalty into the very arteries of our national life; who have sought to bring the authority and good name of our Government into contempt, to destroy our industries wherever they thought it effective for their vindictive purposes to strike at them, and to debase our politics...

    Angelina Jolie has made a strong defense of the United Nations, saying the world body, as “imperfect” as it is, needs reform but also support. The American actress and special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency decried a “rising tide of nationalism masquerading as populism, and the re-emergence of policies encouraging fear and hatred of others” during a speech at the U.N. in Geneva on Wednesday. Saying she was speaking as a “proud American” and “an internationalist,” Jolie said some politicians were elected “partly on the basis of dismissing international institutions and agreements.”

    Concerning the Founding of Nationalist ColoniesBy Edward Bellamy, editor of The New Nation (1893) The editor of The New Nation is very often asked for an opinion as to the merits of various plans for starting colonies, communities and exclusive settlements for the purpose of carrying out the principles of nationalism. By way of general reply we would say that the existing colonies called cities, states and nations seem to us best adapted to the illustration of our principles. The machinery of these existing organizations is strong, well proven and complete, and it belongs to the people as soon as...

    The Neo-Ciceronian Times ^ | March 3, 2017 | Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
    When the question of ethnonationalism comes up, many are often tempted to say that the United States cannot have a “genuine” type of it because of the somewhat “artificial” nature of the USA, planted as colonies and then filled with immigrants which were (originally) from NW Europe, then the rest of Europe, prior to 1965. The Germans could have German nationalism, the Italians could have Italian nationalism, and so forth, but Americans can’t have a genuine ethnonationalism of their own. I believe this argument rests on the false premise that race – and only race – determines nationality, which is...

    Real Clear World ^ | 1 Mar, 2017 | George Friedman
    Nationalism is rising in the Western world, and many view it as the enemy of liberal democracy. The basis of this view is not unreasonable, as European wars fought from 1914 to 1945 were among the most barbaric in history. Those wars were fought between nations, many of which had rejected the principles of liberal democracy. Some saw the proliferation of nations as causing a rise in tyrannies, destruction of liberal democracies, and a war fought to recover liberal democracy in Europe. The view that Europe’s wars originated in nationalism became common, along with the belief that nationalism gave rise...

    The West is teetering on the edge of a world war right now. Whether it is another Cold War like the one that lasted from 1945 to 1991 and can be theoretically considered to be World War III, or a series of running skirmishes will be determined in the coming year. WWIV will not be a battle between nation states, such as WWI, WWII and the Cold War, but a war involving various factions within the nation states themselves in North America and Western Europe. It will be a world war between those who believe in nationalism, populism and freedom...

    TAKE THE NEXT STEP AMERICA When people think of the United States of America, they tend to think of a few things right away: freedom, power, and capitalism. To true Americans, these three values are to be defended more strongly than life itself. But unfortunately, while many people are staunch believers in capitalism, few people take it to the next logical step: nationalism. Competition through capitalism is what forces companies to be better. It is what has made us the world power we are today. The influential philosophers of modernity, Ayn Rand and Adam Smith, praised our economic system as...

In the early days his raison d'être was to wave off the evils of the ordinary:I’ll  grant you that sometimes normal has to be breached in order to find a better solution, reach a higher level of achievement, achieve a better outcome or, yes, even to simply sidestep boredom. But often normal is not just okay, it’s necessary to keep civilization glued together. Consider life without a normal energy supply, normal food and water supply, normal transportation system or...

    Hello Germany. Is everything alright? I'm doing well. Yesterday a new America, today Koblenz and tomorrow a new Europe! It's really a great honor for me to be here today in the beautiful city of Koblenz, at a meeting of the ENF Group, in the presence of so many German patriots. And what you stand for is extremely important. Not only for Germany, but for all of Europe. Europe needs a strong Germany, a self-conscious Germany, a proud Germany, a Germany that stands for its culture, identity and civilization. Europe needs Frauke [Petry], instead of Angela [Merkel]! My friends, that...

    Since World War II, the two men who have most terrified this city by winning the presidency are Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.And they have much in common.Both came out of the popular culture, Reagan out of Hollywood, Trump out of a successful reality TV show. Both possessed the gifts of showmen — extraordinarily valuable political assets in a television age that deals cruelly with the uncharismatic.Both became instruments of insurgencies out to overthrow the establishment of the party whose nomination they were seeking.Reagan emerged as the champion of the postwar conservatism that had captured the Republican Party with Barry...

A new poll from Ifop-Fiducial released Tuesday shows Le Pen at first place with the backing of 26.5% of voters, while her moderate center-right rival Francois Fillon, of Les Republicains, would receive just over 24% of the vote,... “He is putting in place measures I have been demanding for years,” Le Pen said of Trump. The new poll, ... was based on a sample of...

    I would like to discuss something rather foundational. What do you think about this “new nationalism”? Do you think it's new? What does it mean? Does it mean putting America first? Does it, in fact, put America first? Has this new nationalism been tried before? It very much has. The phrase "new nationalism" was actually coined by Theodore Roosevelt in a speech he gave in Kansas on Sept. 1, 1910. In that speech, Theodore Roosevelt, a Republican, later to become a Progressive Party candidate, in essence denounced the Declaration of Independence, and embraced the new nationalism.

"(T)he future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common, as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict."

    ATHENS — President Obama warned Tuesday that Americans and people around the world “are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism, or ethnic identity, or tribalism” taking root amid the populist movements that are gaining currency around the world. Speaking at a joint news conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras by his side, Obama refrained from criticizing President-elect Donald Trump directly as he discussed the impact of his electoral victory last week. But the president made it clear that he sees a dark side to the kind of populist movements Trump's campaign...
