The Peril of Nord Stream 2

BY DANIEL KAWCZYNSKI MP Post Brexit we must back America and NATO over Germany’s dangerous over dependence on Russia and the ramifications that has for our Eastern European partners.  In December 2019, the United States moved to impose sanctions on companies involved in ‘Nord Stream 2’, the Russian bid to build an energy pipeline under the Baltic Sea to Germany. Now that we have finally … Continue reading The Peril of Nord Stream 2

A Completely Objective Look At The Democratic Primaries – Before Things Go Haywire

The state of politics in the United States has made it feel as if we’re on the cusp of a 2020 election that remains more than a year away. Regardless of anyone’s ordinary views on the conservative-liberal spectrum, Donald Trump has enabled inhumane policies, empowered monstrous figures, and displayed an increasingly unstable mental state. As prominent Republican strategist (and “Never-Trumper”) wrote recently, “Trump is coming even … Continue reading A Completely Objective Look At The Democratic Primaries – Before Things Go Haywire

Send for Tice

BY ROBERT FOX Boris Johnson’s opening days at Number 10 have seen encouraging steps in the party’s recovery from Theresa May’s disastrous leadership. The appointment of Brexiteers to key Cabinet positions is finally allowing true believers to deliver Brexit, whilst the installation of the Thatcherite Sajid Javid to the Treasury will also be popular amongst traditional Tory voters. Other measures, such as a serious willingness … Continue reading Send for Tice

Pipsqueaks Trumped

BY JAMIE FOSTER Both Sadiq Khan and Jeremy Corbyn are guilty of embarrassing virtue signalling with their silly Westminster protest. They are a disgrace to Britain. Their arguments with President Trump are largely confected. Trump has said things that many people disagree with but on a state visit he comes as the office holder of President of our closest ally. The relationship between the US … Continue reading Pipsqueaks Trumped

Shrill Bias & False Equivalencies

BY SAM HOOPER The hand-in-glove partnership between the mainstream media and the progressive “Resistance” may pay dividends in the midterms – but if so, it will likely also be their undoing in 2020. Here is CNN’s Don Lemon calling white men the greatest terrorist risk to the United States live on air last week – moments after sanctimoniously calling for an end to divisiveness or demonising certain … Continue reading Shrill Bias & False Equivalencies

We’re Losing this War

BY SAM HOOPER The good aspects of this populist insurgency in America and Britain need saving from horrified (and increasingly organised) antidemocratic elites – but also from cynical and incompetent populist leaders who are squandering our last best hope of democratic renewal. For all the furious words being written and opinions expressed of late, nothing much seems to be changing. Despite a political discourse which … Continue reading We’re Losing this War

May’s Flank Now Truly Exposed

BY JAMIE FOSTER With the resignations of Boris Johnson and David Davis, the good ship Theresa May is taking on water. It may be that the Brexit negotiations sink it entirely. Now Mrs May is attempting the impossible. On the one hand she is trying to reach agreement across the deeply divided Tory Party. On the other hand, she is looking for something that the … Continue reading May’s Flank Now Truly Exposed

The Immigration Conflation

BY SAM HOOPER One of the traits of some accomplished liars is the fact that they are able to make themselves believe their own deceptions. This ability to convince oneself of one’s own lies is what makes many pathological liars so effective, but even many people who are not pathological liars can come to “misremember” certain events after decades of repeating a particular narrative – … Continue reading The Immigration Conflation

Resolute, Trump

CSM EDITORIAL From Anglophile Donald Trump’s seat at the Resolute Desk – a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880, built from the English oak timbers of the British Arctic exploration ship HMS Resolute – Britain does not seem so friendly after all. One would even forgive President Trump looking across the Atlantic these days and preferring Monsieur Macron to Mrs … Continue reading Resolute, Trump
