So now we know.
“Nobody is overestimating the value of pre-election promises but there must be limits of decency. Beyond that is absolute mistrust. Which is really sad for our now completely ruined relations. And which is good news for terrorists.
“One more thing. This military action is a clear indication of the US president’s extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech. Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.”
“Those who wanted us meddling in the Middle East voted for other candidates.
“Trump campaigned on not getting involved in Mideast. Said it always helps our enemies & creates more refugees. Then he saw a picture on TV.”
Trump’s horrific blunder demonstrates one problem with “outsiders”, especially businessmen, getting involved in politics – vanity and an addiction to quick-fix solutions.
G.K. Chesterton would have relished last night’s political earthquake! I don’t know whether Donald Trump knows Chesterton’s 1907 poem, The Secret People, but changing just one word its opening lines could describe today’s America.
Smile at us, pay us, pass us; but do not quite forget;
For we are the people of England, that never have spoken yet.
Last night White America spoke: Wall Street and the world were forced to listen.
Hillary Clinton was the ultimate candidate for those Chesterton described as “new unhappy lords”:
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
Last night those lords were confounded. There will be time for analysis in the days ahead, and perhaps time for caveats. Most urgently, we must hope that President-elect Trump will confound the Islamophobe faction’s hopes, and make clear that he endorses Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran – by far the most important foreign policy issue.
Sadly last night did not see the political renaissance of David Duke, who was defeated in the Louisiana Senate race. But Duke’s message resonated throughout America. The Trump Revolution is a phenomenon more in tune with David Duke’s America than Sheldon Adelson’s America. And for that we can rejoice!
(H&D editor Mark Cotterill reports)
In our previous news item yesterday, we reported on David Duke’s latest race for US senate. Duke is currently running at between 5 – 8% of the vote in Louisiana and has qualified for a live TV debate on November 2nd.
Duke is the godfather to Derek Black, son of Stormfront founder, and long standing White nationalist Don Black and Chloe Black (Duke’s former wife).
Derek Black, now in his mid-20s, who was raised in the white nationalist movement, continues to embarrass and confound his family. A few years ago, Black shocked the movement in general and his family in particular when he announced he was renouncing his white nationalist beliefs.
Derek claimed to be sorry for the damage he had done by his actions and his past endorsement of white nationalism. He wrote in a letter to the Southern Poverty Law Center: “I can’t support a movement that tells me I can’t be a friend to whomever I wish or that other people’s races require me to think about them in a certain way or be suspicious at their advancements.” Derek claimed he came to this conclusion after going to college and travelling abroad (including a trip to the Irish Republic).
He had been seen by many in the movement as a rising star in the white nationalism. Derek had his own radio show and ran for a seat on the Palm Beach Republican Executive Committee. Derek and Don Black were also once pictured with former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul at a Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) meeting. He dated the daughter of the late CofCC leader Gordon Baum and travelled all over the American South (mainly with his father) attending nationalist and conservative meetings.
Derek’s family were of course furious with his rejection of white nationalism and his new life style, after he walked away from the movement he had been involved with since a small child.
However, those who knew Derek – through the movement – will tell you that he was always unstable, and it was only a matter of time before he jumped ship. I met Derek and Don many times between 1995 and 2002, and they stayed at my home(s) in northern Virginia five or six times. I visited their home in West Palm Beach shortly after my arrival in the States in 1995, and I went with Don to the cinema to see the Mel Gibson (anti-English) classic Braveheart.
Don was always more of an Anglophile than the rest of the Duke/Black family. Chloe his wife was very pro-Irish.
Don spoke at a number of meetings of the American friends of the BNP (AFBNP) and almost always brought Derek along with him. During my final month in the States, in October 2002, before I was excluded, I met Don, Chloe and Derek in Miami, for a final farewell dinner. (Nick Griffin and his family were also there – but that’s another story!) Over the years, I got to know both Don and Derek very well.
Duke’s younger daughter Kristin stayed with me at the famous “Wacky-House” in Vienna (northern Virginia) for a couple of months. Kristin was always very close and protective of Derek. In her eyes (as in those of her mother Chloe) Derek could do no wrong.
Derek quit (Infant) school when he was in the third grade, because he did not like it. Later he blamed non-Whites for bullying him, which may or may not have been true, but I guess he just hated the discipline of school life. So from the age of seven he was “home-schooled”, which to be fair a lot of movement children in the States are.
Derek basically did what he wanted, as his mother Chloe and big (half) sister Kristin had read a book by a liberal child psychologist academic which suggested that parents let their young children do whatever they want, whenever they want!
To give you one example, Derek wanted to have very long hair. Don did not want this as it made him look like a girl (he had quite feminine features anyway). Chloe/Kristin over ruled Don on this (and many other matters to do with Derek) so he ended up having very long hair. I recall a number of times while out in restaurants. The waitress would ask Derek “and what does the little girl want to eat/drink”. This was of course very embarassing for Don – but at the end of the day there was nothing he could do about it.
Chloe Black was the only one with a real job: she paid the bills that kept Stormfront running, as well as food on the family table. So what she said regarding Derek went. She would of course regret her actions many years later, when Derek defected to “the other side”!
I remember Zach (a member of our local northern VA chapter of the CofCC) who later went on to become a successful Virginia Lawyer, predicted that it would be Kristin who in years to come would defect to “the other side” and give their story to the SPLC and would be on “the Jerry Springer show” with a black boyfriend slagging us all off!
Zach was very wrong, Kristin, to her credit stayed the course and stayed loyal to the White nationalist movement, whereas it was Derek who defected and talked to the SPLC, and may in future appear on Springer with his black girl (or boy) friend – who can tell?
With Hillary Clinton now almost certain to become U.S. President at next month’s elections, we’ve been short of some good news from the other side of the Atlantic!
But today we learn that the brave White Rights and free speech campaigner David Duke has shocked the establishment by qualifying for a televised debate in the race for a U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana.
The state of Louisiana has a unique ‘open primary’ system in which a large number of candidates compete in a first-round election (on November 8th, the same day as the Presidential election and many other Senate and Congressional contests). The top two candidates from this first round then go into a run-off on December 3rd.
From 1989 to 1992 David Duke was an elected member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and is by far the most successful nationalist candidate of modern times in U.S. politics. In 1990 he was runner-up in a U.S. Senate election in Lousiana, polling 43.5% statewide (607,091 votes)! Then in 1991 he was again runner-up in the contest for Governor of Louisiana, polling 31.7% in the first round and qualifying for the run-off against Democrat Edwin Edwards, the most powerful figure in Louisiana politics at the time. In the 1991 run-off Duke polled 38.8% (671,009 votes).
In the 1996 Senate primary Duke stood again, this time finishing in fourth place with 11.5% (141,489 votes).
In 2016 it has proved more difficult for Duke to raise funds and campaign, for all of the usual reasons that H&D readers will understand. Yet he has again shocked the establishment by meeting the 5% opinion poll threshold to qualify for a primetime televised debate which will be broadcast across Louisiana on November 2nd.
Arguably our movement’s most effective media performer (certainly in the English-speaking world), David Duke is sure to make the most of this opportunity. As he posted on Twitter yesterday: “I can’t wait to tell truth nobody else dares!”
For European nationalists, American politics traditionally seem alien in several respects, including the role of religion. Christianity (usually in its protestant, ‘fundamentalist’ variants) has been an essential ingredient of ‘right-wing’ political movements in the USA, whereas in most of Europe it was marginal (at best).
Donald Trump seems to have changed all that. During the Republican presidential primaries, it was obvious that he had little support among Christian fundamentalists, most of whom rallied behind Trump’s main rival, Ted Cruz. Similarly the main Jewish Republican powerbrokers, such as casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, whose financial clout has traditionally been allied to Protestant fundamentalists in promoting Republican presidential candidates since the Reagan era, have been lukewarm at best towards Trump.
As the critical phase of the campaign begins, with tonight’s first presidential debate, the so-called Christian Right is now (mostly) coming off the fence and declaring for Trump as the lesser of two evils, given that Hillary Clinton would be a nightmare candidate for traditional Christians on issues such as abortion and homosexual marriage.
One influential Christian Right leader, Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention, remains hostile to Trump. Moreover there is now a clear divide within American Christianity: Catholic voters are heavily pro-Clinton according to latest polls. This is partly because of the large bloc of Hispanic Catholics, who are for obvious reasons likely to be especially hostile to Trump: but this cannot wholly explain the swing. Clearly Trump is also losing heavily among White Catholics.
Around one-quarter of the US electorate is Catholic, and in recent polls they have split 55-32 or 61-34 in favour of Clinton. When Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama in 2012, he was only 50-48 behind among Catholics. In 2004 George W. Bush won the Catholic vote, as did his father in 1988.
In the UK, there has traditionally been a clear lead for Labour among Catholic voters, although one of the most interesting aspects of last year’s general election was that Scottish Catholics for the first time backed the Scottish National Party in large numbers. (The SNP was once seen as a Protestant party, but its former leader Alex Salmond assiduously cultivated the Catholic hierarchy.)
However in the UK the vast majority of voters are not genuine practitioners of any religion. Only 11% of Britons now claim that they attend some form of religious service at least once a month, though there are much larger numbers of nominal Christians.
In the most recent detailed survey of England and Wales, those openly admitting that they have “no religion” amounted to 48.5%: for the first time this is now the largest sub-group, ahead of all Christians combined, who amount to 43.8% (though most of these do not practice their religion in any meaningful sense). All non-Christian religions combined add up to just 7.7% of the UK population, though of course this is a growing minority, and most of these have more than a nominal attachment to their religion.
The sharpest declines are among practising Anglicans, once the bedrock of the Conservative Party, and the various (White) non-Anglican Protestant churches. Every undergraduate history student, for example, was once familiar with the argument that the origins of the Labour Party “owed more to Methodism than to Marx”, yet the House of Commons post-2015 now has not a single Methodist MP. The typical non-Anglican Protestant today is more likely to be an inner-city African than an English or Welsh chapel-goer.
A network of organisations run by billionaire George Soros (notorious for his profitable speculation against the pound on ‘Black Wednesday’ in 1992) has been successfully targeted in a massive leak of confidential documents, published online today.
One organisation lavishly funded by Soros was the British “antifascist” group Hope Not Hate, which in one of the leaked documents is shown receiving $93,740 for just one of its projects – Hope Camp – in advance of the 2014 elections.
This was part of a series of Soros-funded projects intended to influence those elections. According to the leaked documents, Hope Camp’s “purpose is to provide a community organizers’ training program for local anti-hate organizations, especially those wanting to engage in the 2014 European elections. The training model will combine the experience, the organizing and campaigning skills developed and used by HOPE not hate in the UK and by United We Dream in the US.”
UK political parties are of course prohibited from receiving overseas donations from people not on the UK electoral register. It will be interesting to see whether the Electoral Commission takes a close look at foreign, non-party intervention in the electoral process.
Although Soros & Co. might have been well pleased with the BNP’s defeat in 2014, the truth is that this had little to do with “antifascist” campaigning. Nick Griffin had already effectively destroyed his own party’s chances years earlier.
Moreover, another of the leaked Soros documents – a review of the European campaign, written in November 2014 – showed that not everything went the billionaire’s way. The document makes clear that the Soros foundations “concentrated a large amount of resources and energy to try and bolster the groups and campaigns which could, in some ways, mitigate the feared populist surge in the EP elections.”
This involved “exposing the weaknesses of the extreme right”.
However, while some projects “far exceeded our expectations”, others “surprised us in a negative way. The grant to UNITED, for example, was a clear disappointment. While the proposal was well written and the cooperation with ENAR and HOPE not Hate, two OSF grantees which generally deliver great work, seemed promising, not much was achieved on the ground. …Arguing that the HOPE not Hate approach could not be applied in other countries due to particular sensitivities, the project ended up with five very different projects on the ground, with little coordination amongst them. …It was a typical case of a project which looked great on paper, but was an unexpected disappointment in practice.”
H&D looks forward to analysing these leaked documents further: but two points are already evident. Firstly, there was massive financial intervention by George Soros and his foundations in a covert effort to influence European elections. Secondly, despite lavish funding, many of these interventions failed and are continuing to fail, as European nationalist movements continue to advance!
Some of you may have seen the article – “Accused British Assassin Thomas Mair Attended Racists’ 2000 Meeting” on the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Centre) website on June 19th.
The article was written by the SPLC’s top honcho Mark Potok but the story was provided by one Todd Blodgett, a former employee of the Reagan White House administration, John Whitehouse, Liberty Lobby, Resistance Records, and now it seems the FBI!
Blodgett – whom I once knew very well as my employer, friend and fellow racial-nationalist from 1998 to 2002 – has sadly sold his soul again to the SPLC: for money for a few more lines of cocaine no doubt.
Potok (who was never one to let truth get in the way of a good story) and Blodgett then came up with the tale of Thomas Mair’s supposed links to the nationalist movement in general and the National Alliance in particular, which it is claimed brought him down to London for a “racist meeting” in May 2000.
So desperate for a few more bucks to feed his habit(s), Blodgett has invented the whole story about Thomas Mair attending this racist meeting and how Todd met and talked to him there. And how I, with my vast network of racist contacts in the UK supposedly organised the whole event from my ground-floor apartment (flat) in Falls Church, Northern Virginia. A story which the SPLC bought (literally!) from him!
Now to give Blodgett some credit he did attend a meeting of some 15-20 racial nationalist activists near the Strand, in central London – but it was not organised by me and it was certainly not in May 2000. The meeting was in fact organised by Nick Griffin, then unofficial number two in the BNP to the late John Tyndall, and was held sometime during 1998.
At that time Blodgett was working for Willis Carto at Liberty Lobby, and not as he now claims for Dr. William Pierce of the National Alliance. Carto had purchased Resistance Records from Jason Snow and George Burdi/Hawthorne a year or so beforehand but later wanted to sell it on. (I guess he did not wish his Spotlight newspaper to be associated with Skinheads anymore.)
Blodgett was in fact the middle man between Willis Carto and William Pierce (who by the way hated each other, so would not deal with each other directly – so they did the deal via Todd Blodgett, who may or may not have taken a small cut for his trouble).
Griffin with the help of then Scottish BNP activist Stevie Cartwright (Blodgett got that bit right too) got together 15 to 20 of the main players in the Nationalist music scene, who were also sympathetic to Griffin and his future challenge for the BNP leadership, to meet Blodgett and hear his plans for expanding Resistance Records into Britain and the European Market.
Whether his FBI controllers were with Blodgett at the London meeting is unknown but if I were a gambling man I would say it was very, very doubtful because:
(a) I doubt very much that he was an FBI informant back in 1998 and
(b) the American Spooks did not really take that much notice or interest in us (what they would call the far-right) until after 9/11 – and after 9/11 of course it all went rather mental!
Anyway, back to the London meeting in the Strand in 1998 (not 2000). One thing is clear after 18 years: Thomas Mair was not at that meeting, he had not been invited, and in fact nobody had ever heard of him! The meeting was for the top / key players in the scene – Mair was not even IN the scene!
Blodgett made up the story that Mair was there and fed (sold) it to the SPLC, who in turn passed it on to news agencies around the world – including our very own BBC – who have now called me twice to find out more about this Thomas Mair chap.
Amongst his fairy tales Blodgett claims that Mair was “loosely affiliated with the Leeds chapter of the National Alliance”. The NA never had a Leeds Chapter – in fact they never even had a UK chapter, though a now deceased individual in the Leeds area ran a mail order book service with NA connections. Around that time – 1998-2000 – the NA may have had 20 to 30 members in the whole of the UK, and that’s tops. They were not organised as chapters and in most cases did not even know each other.
My guess is (and I must stress this is only a guess) is that Mair knew somebody in the Batley area (maybe an NF or BNP member) who got him some flyers and/or catalogues from the NA. This person may have got these at a local NF/BNP meeting, where fringe literature from the USA was often (unofficially) passed around.
Potok goes on in his article about Mair subscribing to a “pro-apartheid South African publication”. The magazine that Mair did in fact subscribe to was South African Patriot In Exile (SAPIE) – published by one Alan Harvey, from his mother’s house in Herne Bay on the Kent coast – many, many miles away from South Africa.
Mair, in a letter he sent to SAPIE which was published in issue #31 in 1992, claimed he first got hold of their magazine via the NF. He did not say whether he wrote off to the NF and bought it from them (they did sell South African Patriot [the forerunner to SAPIE] at the time) or if he bought it at a local NF meeting in Yorkshire. Mair had a further letter published by SAPIE in issue #35 in 1995.
Strangely Potok does not mention that SAPIE was very pro-Zionist and very anti-Nazi (and still is as far as I’m aware) or that its editor Alan Harvey describes himself as “101% pro-Israel”. I guess that would not tie in well with his claims that Mair was a “neo-Nazi”.
Further on in the article Blodgett claims that Richard Barnbrook was at this “secret meeting” supposedly held in May 2000. Barnbrook first appeared on the Nationalist scene in the summer of 2000 where he was the official cameraman at the BNP’s inaugural Red, White and Blue Festival near Oswestry. Barnbrook later came to fame when he became the first (and only) BNP member to be elected to the Greater London Assembly in 2008. As I pointed out earlier the London meeting was in fact held in 1998, and Barnbrook was not there. I doubt he was even a member of the BNP then.
Potok goes on in the next paragraph to say that I was “later deported (from the USA) for his activities”. Well as anybody with half a brain cell can find out by going online, I have never been deported from the USA – or any other country for that matter. But as I said earlier, Potok was never one to let the truth get in the way of a good story.
Just for the record I was handed a 10-year exclusion order from an immigration judge in Arlington County, Virginia in September 2002. The judge gave me three months to vacate the USA, as I had my home, job and wife there, so we needed plenty of time to sort things out. I vacated the USA with my wife Jenny at the start of November 2002 and have never returned since.
Ok, back to the “secret meeting”. Potok claims that Dr. William Pierce (leader of the NA) “had recently bought Resistance Records”. This is another lie: at the time of the meeting RR was still owned by Willis Carto.
Potok further states that he (Pierce) “would soon be releasing an electronic game to be called Ethnic Cleansing.” Another whopper of a lie here. That game was released in 2002, four years after that “secret meeting”. So ask yourself who could or would have been “giddy” (as Blodgett and Potok claim) about an electronic game that had not even been invented yet and was still four years from release?
After having spoken to Stevie Cartwright at some length about the “secret meeting” in London’s Strand back in 1998 (his memories of the era are a lot clearer than mine, well I am 55 going on 56 now!) he can categorically state that Blodgett knew no one personally at all who was invited to that meeting, either by name or by description. That being so he would not have known whether Thomas Mair had been there or not, which of course he wasn’t anyway.
Another fact exposing the lie that this meeting was held in 2000 was the fact that when Stevie Cartwright came to the USA in March 1999 to do a series of speeches and “house meetings” he also did some work in Todd Blodgett’s temporary Resistance Records office in the Woodley Park area of Washington DC. Stevie was renewing his acquaintance with Todd whom he had met before at that London meeting. So how on earth could that meeting have been in 2000? A complete nonsense!
If the truth be known, and that’s REAL truth – not some Cock and Bull Story made up by Potok and Blodgett – it might well be that Thomas Mair did have an interest in racial-nationalism, and that’s why he bought papers, magazines and books from a whole host of what the BBC would describe as “Far-Right” groups – including the National Alliance, South African Patriot and the National Front.
However, that does not make Mair a right-wing/nationalist/neo-Nazi (or whatever you want to call it) activist. Far from it, Mair was what some in our movement used to call an “arm-chair nationalist”, but now would more likely be called a “keyboard warrior”, i.e. he was the opposite of an activist – a non-activist in fact. He did nothing at all for the nationalist cause or movement in the past 15 to 20 years.
And the first time we hear of him is when he is accused of murdering the Labour MP Jo Cox on Thursday 16th June 2016.
As Todd Blodgett has chosen to put himself at the centre of this ridiculous conspiracy, either for monetary gain or as a favour to his handlers, then surely any prosecuting lawyer worth his salt would call Blodgett as a witness to the character and alleged “prejudices” of Tommy Mair. However, once the details are looked into and examined at length it would be blatantly clear that this was simply a fiction from the fevered mind of a criminal liar, fantasist and traitor who has been egged on by his bosom buddies in the SPLC hate group.
Now as anybody in the movement who knows me can tell you, I’m not one for conspiracy theories and never have been: but something is just not right here. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I – or somebody better than me – will. The real truth about Thomas Mair will come out. So Mark Potok – watch this space!

PS: In a few days time Heritage and Destiny will publish a further exposé of the SPLC/FBI hired liar and crook Todd Blodgett.
In a new article for America’s most famous liberal journal The Nation, Tom Hayden endorses Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign – his reasons for doing so indicate how for the White Left worldwide, hatred of their own race has become the all-important issue, transcending any socialist or liberal ideology.
Hayden (now 76) is one of the veteran leaders of the American Left, perhaps best known to the general public as the ex-husband of actress and anti-war activist Jane Fonda.
In his latest article he admits that he was an early supporter of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, and has criticised Hillary Clinton for her apparent eagerness to support American involvement in even more foreign wars, her closeness to the financial elite, and her ambiguous stand on environmental issues.
Yet all of these concerns are transcended for Hayden by one overriding issue: race. Whereas Sanders has addressed himself primarily to the concerns of White working-class voters, Clinton still enjoys overwhelming support among Blacks, and to a slightly lesser extent Hispanics.
I intend to vote for Hillary Clinton in the California primary for one fundamental reason. It has to do with race. My life since 1960 has been committed to the causes of African Americans, the Chicano movement, the labor movement, and freedom struggles in Vietnam, Cuba and Latin America. In the environmental movement I start from the premise of environmental justice for the poor and communities of color. My wife is a descendant of the Oglala Sioux, and my whole family is inter-racial.
So White workers in America now have no excuse. They know where they stand. Even Tom Hayden – among the most celebrated semi-socialist, Marxist influenced activists of the 1960s Left – openly argues that his political choices are governed above all by racial self-hatred.
Commander Matt Koehl – a dedicated national socialist activist since his teenage years and successor to George Lincoln Rockwell – died on October 10th at his home in Wisconsin, USA. He was 79 years old.
After studying journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Matt Koehl served for two years active duty in the US Marine Corps. Prior to joining Rockwell’s American Nazi Party (later the National Socialist White People’s Party) in 1960, he had been active in three other US racial nationalist groups: the National Renaissance Party, the National States Rights Party and the United White Party. In 1958 he worked with Rockwell on the Alabama governor campaign of the NSRP’s Admiral John Crommelin.
Matt Koehl moved to the ANP’s Virginia headquarters in 1963 as the party’s national secretary. Rockwell was assassinated in August 1967, and Koehl succeeded him as NSWPP Commander. For many years he worked alongside Colin Jordan in the World Union of National Socialists.
At the end of 1982 Commander Koehl renamed the NSWPP as New Order, and promoted a mystical national socialism influenced by Savitri Devi and Miguel Serrano. His right-hand man in the NSWPP and New Order was Martin Kerr, assistant editor of Heritage and Destiny.
A full obituary will appear in a forthcoming issue of H&D.
Jared Taylor of American Renaissance and Dr Tom Sunic, philosopher and former Croatian diplomat, addressed a private dinner of 76 European nationalists in Budapest following the banning of the European Congress (see earlier report).
The Hungarian government’s attempt to silence discussion of racial realities confronting Europeans worldwide has backfired, with extensive media coverage of Jared Taylor’s successful rescuing of the event and his message to attendees, who had flown to Budapest from many countries sharing a common European heritage now under threat from multiracial mania.
Tom Sunic’s after dinner speech (introduced by Jared Taylor) can be viewed below:
