WRU Unplugger of the Year

The WRU Unplugger of the Year need not be a monarchist, nor regret the fall of the Old European Order. The WRU Unplugger of the Year is simply the one who is considered to have done most in bringing about the unplugging of the Wilson Revolution.

This year's awardee has done a fundamentally outstanding job at bringing a mighty blow to the Wilsonian political establishment in America and elsewhere. His election campaign has opened up lots of opportunities for those who oppose the Wilsonian world order, also known as deplorables.

The 2016 WRU Unplugger of the Year is:

Donald John Trump

Donald J. Trump


Quote of the Month

Writes Bionic Mosquito:

The sacrifices demanded of the people today, under the supposedly most free form of government devised, were never seen under the despots that came before: what was asked of the French people under the Republic made the days under even Louis XIV seem idyllic. The weight of government for Americans – who supposedly gained their freedom over 200 years ago – would be unrecognizable to the farmer in South Carolina in 1775; “why did we bother fighting,” he would wonder.
