Pagan Son

Late one afternoon in 1969, photographer Art Brewer took a stroll along O'ahu's North Shore. At Pipeline beach, amid the world’s most sublime waves, Brewer encountered a boy who resembled a white-haired, blue-eyed Mowgli, clinging to an unusually short surfboard, 30 years before that design became the industry standard. “I’m Bunker Spreckels,” said the boy,

Hollywood’s Dark Fate Foretold in Box Office Performance of ‘Dark Fate’

Judgement Day is upon the Border Patrol, or at least that’s the message in “Terminator: Dark Fate.” The latest installment of the series features Border Patrol agents being slaughtered by a Mexican-American actor while illegal aliens flee a detention center. The people who protect our borders, it seems, are even less human than the film’s

Cold War Kicks

As talk of “cold civil war” heats up, I decided to turn on, tune in, and drop out with two flicks set in the days of the old Iron Curtain. Even through the lens of pop culture that favors them, it can be seen that liberals and liberalism always have been fundamentally incapable not only

Struggle for the World Anew

A lean and hungry spirit moves its hand through political movements and parties throughout the West. It’s not exactly Left or Right, liberal or conservative. In France, Marine Le Pen’s National Rally triumphed in the European elections. She subsequently called President Emmanuel Macon to dissolve parliament. “He has no other choice to dissolve the National

No Justice But What We Make

After illegally crossing the border for the fifth time, Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, a Mexican national with more than 30 aliases, stole a handgun from the vehicle of a federal agent. While on a stroll along Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco, the stolen pistol magically discharged, Garcia-Zarate’s defense claims, and fatally wounded

The Democrat-Antifa Axis

Last fall, journalist Andy Ngo documented 38 “days of government-sanctioned anarchy” that swept like wildfire through Portland, Oregon. Antifa, a group of black-clad, jackbooted left-wing militants, laid siege to the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office and eventually engulfed the community in chaos, all under the passive oversight of Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler.

Beating the War Drums

A coalition between the Democratic Party and left-wing militants is coming into view, manifesting as a combined arms approach of state and non-state actors working to suppress political dissent. It is paradoxically authoritarian and anti-establishmentarian, using law enforcement bureaus to effect their designs while simultaneously placing officers and agents in harm’s way. When Democrats sought

In Search of White Supremacy

In the wake of another series of mass shootings, we begin our regularly scheduled programming searching for the systemic culprits: “white supremacists” who, we are reliably informed, prowl the halls of our institutions pursuing a policy of ethnic cleansing as we speak. They hide in plain sight, the experts warn, and are represented among such
