Quote of the Month

Over at Taki's Magazine, writes Mr. Theodore Dalrymple:

[W]hile ugliness is democratic, being within the reach of all, beauty is aristocratic or at least elitist, being available to only a minority even in the best of circumstances.

Donald Trump

I was in the audience when Donald Trump spoke at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Saturday July 11.

I am reminded that Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn warned us against being ruled by merchants.

If elected, will he be better than his predecessors? Perhaps, but I am skeptical. From a show perspective, he certainly is refreshing.

Indeed he talks about immigration as a problem, which “no one else” talks about, but legal immigration is also a problem.
