Rest In Peace, Prince Philip; Burn In Hell Meghan Markle

America, Britain, Celebrity, Family, Pop-Psychology

Bide your time, lovely Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. You’ll be queen one day, a beautiful and benevolent queen, and then you can dispatch the manipulative Meghan Markle to The Tower of London (“Mighty fortress. Royal palace. Infamous prison”), if she dare set foot in England.

It’s time for the royals to reclaim the moxie of Queen Elizabeth I (1533–1603).

This hopeful exhortation comes against the backdrop of the passing of “Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the age of 99, [which] marks both a moment of personal grief for the Queen and the royal family and a moment of national mourning for a man who dedicated his life to public service.”

Prince Philip had been teetering when Markle gave her performance with the Queen of Kitsch, Oprah Winfrey. Meghan Markle’s sordid little Oprah psycho-drama dwarfs, in this context. She has shown herself as a tacky, tawdry, Hollywood c-list actress, who is a disgrace to the decent Americans.

In 2017, I had predicated, too hastily, that Meghan Markle, American actress, would finish what Diana Spencer had begun: destroy the Monarchy. Markle was a divorced, left-liberal feminist out of Hollywood. It screams degeneracy. She’s pathologically manipulative, too. The signs were there. Check out video footage I posted then of the Child Snake.

When Markle erupted, the cretins of American media proved too corrupt and stupid to look at the bare-bones of reality: who was doing the trashing, dividing and bad-mouthing? ‘Twas trashy Meghan Markle.

Peddling hearsay: That was Meghan Markle, who’s turned her houseboy on his family, the monarchy. The latter are refined, something trash-bag Markle doesn’t get. Even if the Queen and her family thought “improper” thoughts about her, they’d never express them.

Incidentally, Markle’s narcissism is not a mental disorder, it needs no diagnosis; it’s a fault and a flaw. Over this space, we do not medicalize bad, ugly behavior. That lefty mode of thinking is another erroneous thinking adopted by conservatives from the Left. Evil is not an illness.

A brother comes out with it: That empty suit, Meghan Markle, has unleashed insignificance on an anguished world, says “Suits” co-star Wendell Pierce. Well said. That’s narcissism, now isn’t it? Foisting your solipsistic, inconsequential self on the cosmos.

The queen won’t outlive Meghan Markle, but she dwarfs that ditz.

Comparing Biden (sadly dim) and Queen Elizabeth (sharp), as she conducts a Zoom call with The Kingdom, Mark Steyn performed brilliant satire on the Tucker Carlson Show, calling the Queen—read about some of her feats in “Mobocracy Vs. Monarchy“—Bret Baier in a tiara.

Heartfelt condolences, your Majesty.

Revolving Door Between Cable Media And DC Duopoly

America, Critique, Democrats, Ethics, Iran, Media, Morality, Republicans

The revolving door between cable media, neoliberal (CNN) or neocon (Fox), and the D.C. duopoly is sickening. Whether articulated by the Left or the Right; this revolving door between politics and the media is indisputably a moral, if not a legal, conflict of interest.

Fox News has hired warmonger Mike Pompeo. The skirts from the Trump administration, ideologically insignificant all, are on the Fox payroll. Corrupt—neither is the content smart: all day long it’s “the poor Uyghurs, invade Iran.”

Naturally, examples abound on the other side.

‘American Foreign Policy Advances the Globalist Revolution’

America, Cultural Marxism, Foreign Policy, Ilana Mercer, South-Africa

Boyd D. Cathey at LewRockwell.com about my column at CNSNews.com, “Americans Should Recall How Foreign-Policy Alinskyites Destroyed South Africa“: 

“… One writer who is also a dear friend is Ilana Mercer. Ilana writes a regular column that is printed in various venues. A former citizen of South Africa, she has seen quite personally how the ravages of Marxist and Communist revolution can destroy a civilized country and its social structures. And she has recounted that experience—and warning to the West—in detail in her necessary volume, Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons For America From Post-Apartheid South Africa. It’s a book that more Americans should know and pay heed to, for there are certain parallels with the insane post- or neo-Marxist ‘woke’ anti-racist and anti-white revolution now occurring almost unopposed here in the United States. Indeed, what is now happening here makes the revolution in and transformation of South Africa seem mild in comparison. 

In a recent column, Mercer offers a broad survey which examines the tragically obtuse and wrongheaded policies of the United States around the globe: for decades, whether under Democratic or Republican presidents—it seems to make little difference—American policy has been to impose on other countries by whatever method was convenient or available an egalitarian leftist-liberal ‘democratism,’ a uniform global model as part of a universal zeal to remake the world. Older traditions, inherited religious belief, valued customs, and forms of government and statecraft which do not hew the ‘democratic’ line and do not celebrate “equality” (as our government apparatchiks define it successively to suit their globalism) become pariah states. And soon, with the influence of US government-supported and financed NGOs (non-government organizations), ‘opposition’ groups pop up in those non-juring countries. With American funding and the enthusiastic participation of almost the entirety of the US media, including most so-called ‘conservative media’ (e.g. Fox News, National Review, The Wall Street Journal, etc.), new paper ‘heroes of democracy’ are created and showcased. …”

South Africa Through Old World, South-African Eyes

America, Democracy, History, Ilana Mercer, Race, South-Africa

How much of an old-school South African is this writer?

Consider the image appended to this short, lyrical post. It is a rare picture of P.W. Botha, South African prime minister, later president, with his second wife, Barbara Botha (nee Robertson), also the person who sent me this image.

This dear lady contacted me after the publication, in 2011, of Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons For America From Post-Apartheid South Africa. We corresponded. I felt we spoke the same language.

Yes, Americans rabbit on about the “Boers, Boers, Boers,” but in truth, it was the Boers, the Brits and the Bantu, in South Africa, locked in a struggle, as Into The Cannibal’s Pot honestly chronicles.

South Africa, it seems to me, is only ever refracted thorough uniquely, New World, American lenses. To me, most young South Africans sound as though they have no connection to the old South Africa in any real sense. And why would they? As detailed in Into The Cannibal’s Pot, the country’s history has been expunged or rewritten:

… landmarks in the country’s founding history are slowly being erased, as demonstrated by the ANC’s decision to give an African name to Potchefstroom, a town founded in 1838 by the Voortrekkers. Pretoria is now officially called Tshwane. Nelspruit, founded by the Nel Family (they were not Xhosa), and once the seat of the South African Republic’s government during the Boer War, has been renamed Mbombela. Polokwane was formerly Pietersburg. Durban’s Moore Road (after Sir John Moore, the hero of the Battle of Corunna, fought in 1809 during the Napoleonic Wars) is Che Guevara Road …. (p. 80)

It’s a strange thing to say, but, again, to me, young South Africans sound more American. They sound like they are more likely to know Candice Owens than to have heard of Gatsha Buthelezi.

I am a South African by birth. The sources  I used in Into The Cannibal’s Pot reflect my being an older South African, who had been steeped in the place prior to democracy; having known South Africa and the characters at play on the political stage well before democracy.

People like the brilliant commentator Dan Roodt, the famous musician and activist, Steve Hofmeyr, and patriot Cuan Elgin: These people know of what I speak. They understand the Old South Africa.

I don’t mean this unkindly, but honestly, Americans don’t have a feel for the place as it was—yet so many South Africans look to American writing about South Africa to set the tone of the narrative about the region.

And they seem to have no value for an older generation of their own sons and daughter who did know the old South Africa.
