New Column (Updated 1/26): Queen Elizabeth Beats Hollywood And The Stumblebum Sussexes

Britain, Celebrity, Communism, Etiquette

The new column is “Queen Elizabeth Beats Hollywood And The Stumblebum Sussexes.” It’s on American Greatness,  WND.COM and The Unz Review.

An excerpt:

His wife, a hero of sorts only in the TV series “Suits,” had hightailed it to Canada, leaving Harry Windsor, formerly known as Prince Harry, to deliver a concession speech.

Make no mistake—no matter the moola they rake in, Harry and Meghan Markle have been sorely defeated and deflated.

Earlier in January 2020, the stumblebum Sussexes had smugly announced to the public that they “planned to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.” The unavoidable implication of that sleight-of-hand was that “this institution” (the monarchy) was just not “woke” enough for the two’s exquisitely honed sensibilities.

Gallantly has Harry tried since to make his subjects believe that it is he, not Meghan Markle—his meddlesome, divisive, American wife—who had attempted, and failed miserably, to outsmart Queen Elizabeth II.

But the crass and callous rollout production, lacking in etiquette and contemptuous of royal protocol, fell flat.

So deeply silly was the Sussexes Instagram statement, that it had brainy royal correspondents and members of the queen’s bench snickering that Harry and his Hollywood wife must have been getting bad advice from friends across the Atlantic, who knew nothing about the workings of the British monarchy.

A woman of impeccable class, HM the Queen, aged 93, handled the Markle tantrum with great kindness—even though the couple had informed the world of their antics, before apprising the queen and other members of the royal family.

Wrapping up Markle’s failed brinkmanship, Harry unleashed a load of bafflegab, peppered with oddly fatalistic phrases such as, “after so many years of challenges,” “there really was no other option,” and, sadly, “it had come to” this.

Translated: After two years of royal toil, my wife had had enough. She cracked under the duress of being dressed to the nines, served the food of her fancy, watched over and catered to, housed in a palace of her own design, and showered with her heart’s desire and a title.

These were paltry rewards for Markle’s herculean efforts. In a word, Meghan prefers the life of a celebrity to that of a public servant. …

… Once upon a time, a dolt from Tinseltown imagined she was a match for the queen of England. …

The End.

… READ THE REST. The new column is “Queen Elizabeth Beats Hollywood And The Stumblebum Sussexes.” It’s on American Greatness,  WND.COM and The Unz Review.

UPDATE (1/26/020): Shallow. 

Then there’s the radical, leftist perspective of Mr. and Mrs. Markle and their friends. For them, being “exposed to the world” means being exposed to “Obama, Winfrey, etc.,” and to have “no one [that] doesn’t return your call or accept an invitation to lunch.”

‘Soviet States Democratized Better When They Had A Deep-Rooted Nationalist Movement’

Communism, Democracy, Fascism, Nationhood, Populism, Russia, Socialism, The West

We are propagandized daily about the dangers of nationalism (only among Western nations, mind you).

Nationalism, the statists tell us, is fascism by any other name. It’s certainly never a benign force.

A scholar from “the University of Toronto … argues,” however, that former Soviet states democratized better when they had a deep-rooted nationalist movement.”

Estonia is thriving. Lo and behold, nationalism “was stronger in Estonia, which was independent from 1918 to 1940, than in Moldova, which was ruled by Romania or Russia for centuries.”

It’s so intuitive that national cohesion and nationalism would enhance the willingness to submit to mass society, namely, democracy.

AOC Targeting “White” Business

Business, Communism, Drug War, Economy, Race, Socialism

In the dangerous and twisted universe of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whites who start businesses are guilty of an act of domination, to be punished, rather than appreciated and applauded for their initiative.

This woman, who earned a degree in economics from and AMERICAN UNIVERSITY—yes, American institutions bred AOC’s ignorance—doesn’t understand that the risk of starting a business is borne by the entrepreneur. The investment and planning of a successful commercial enterprise are undertaken by the businessman. If he or she succeeds, and most small businesses do not, the benefits redound to the community.

In appears here that our command economist would gladly regulate who starts a cannabis businesses. As she sees it, that whites get a business plan together, so as to be granted a license to trade cannabis, clearly reflects badly on them.

“According to an industry trade publication, 73% of cannabis executives in Colorado and Washington are male, 81% are white,” said Ocasio-Cortez during the hearings. “In the state of Massachusetts, just 3.1% of marijuana businesses in the state were owned by minorities, and just 2.2% were owned by women. Is this industry representative of the communities that have historically [borne] the greatest brunt of injustice based on the prohibition of marijuana?”

“Absolutely not,” replied Barnette, who is one of the nation’s few African-American medical marijuana business owners.

“It does not look like any of the people who are reaping the profits of this are the people who were directly impacted,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.

UPDATED (10/10/018): So Far, Most Land Grabbed In South Africa Lies Uncultivated

Seventy percent of the land lies fallow—that is land acquired by the ANC (the African National Congress) from whites, on a “willing buyer, willing seller” basis, to give to blacks.

This, the Economist confirms (Aug 23rd 2018), while advising on how to “improve” the process of handing over large-scale commercial farms that feed the nation, to subsistence farmers who can barely feed themselves.

After all, these land recipients are bad farmers only “because new black farmers receive [so] little help.”
