The High Center
by Douglas Mercer
GENERALLY SPEAKING, politicians are nothing but shameless opportunists.
And so miraculous was Donald Trump’s victory in 2016, so shocking in every respect, that one would think that politicians would have flocked to the formula that produced it.
That formula was straight up Buchananism: No wars, no immigration, no free trade, go after Wall Street, leave the social safety net alone, attack the global elites, combined with a thinly veiled crypto White Identity politics.
It worked and it was glorious.
Usually nothing succeeds like success. This time it failed.
Usually success has a hundred fathers. But in this case, no. In this case success was an orphan.
Outside of few lame and half-hearted attempts, no politician has marched under this banner. And this is because the suite of issues that Trump ran on directly threatened the Ruling Class and the donors. This is because the suite of issues that Trump ran on had the “bad odor” of White people. This is because the suite of issues that Trump ran on opened up the distinct possibility of returning Washington, DC to American control. This is because the Republican party hates the people that vote for them more than they want to be elected.
This agenda would give White America some much needed breathing room, and literally no one in power wants that.
They want us on the run.
And so one saw the perverse spectacle of politicians fleeing from the possibility of endless electoral success.

The formula is simple and has been stated a thousand times: Left on economics; right on social issues.
Any modern history of America that does not lead with the notion that our elites became fully de-nationalized around about 1980 is fooling you.
That’s when, on an industrial scale, the jobs went out, the people came in, and the nation was wrecked. That’s when America was turned from a nation into an economic zone, from a people into population, and from a country into a refuge for the scum of the world.
It’s when White America became fully dispossessed.
It’s when the left loosened social controls and the right loosened economic ones, when together they formed a wedge to destroy a nation.

In the 1920s in Germany a Conservative Revolution took place. Out of the welter that was Weimar came something called The Third Position. This position recognized that both capitalism and communism were Jewish tools and that a third way forward was needed. A third way forward that skirted the Scylla of capital and the Charybdis of communism.
This was the only way to exclude baleful Jewish influence and for White people to have a country of their own.
In Europe today they call the Third Position the High Center.
It means go after Wall Street, toss up tariffs, bring the jobs home, build the middle class, stop foreign interventionism, stop immigration, deport the millions.
It means protectionism for the people. It means building Fortress America.
And this is the way to conserve a nation and a people.

In the 1980s, conservatism became bound up and indelibly associated in the public mind with low taxes, voodoo economics, free trade, endless wars, open door immigration, color-blind social policy, catering to Wall Street, and leaving Main Street behind.
It was “gentry” conservatism, at home in the country club
But this is not and never was true conservatism, rather it is a criminal conspiracy perpetrated by Jews.
In 1989, Brett Easton Ellis wrote the novel American Psycho. The metaphorical theme of the book was that the 1980s was when American elites began to treat human beings as abstractions, as things, as tools.
The 1980s was when the American elites became murderous in the pursuit of their prerogatives. At the time there was pushback.
The early 1990s saw the movie Falling Down wherein a normal middle class White man has had enough and begins mowing people down.
It was the time when the press began bellowing about the phenomenon of the “Angry White Male.” This was the age of Duke, Perot, and Buchanan.
We tend to forget how much in his day David Duke was a real political player. Duke began to poach issues form Democrats and stick up for White people and he had real success.
Perot warned us of the giant sucking sound that was jobs doing to Mexico. That sucking sound soon became a deafening roar.
And of course Buchanan gave us the template: culture war, White party, massive tariffs, bring the troops and the jobs back home.
When war broke out in 1991 he said that the only two entities who were clamoring for it were the Israeli Defense Force and their amen corner in America.
Amen to that.

Buchanan said that when he first heard Trump’s platform he nearly fell out of his chair.
Too bad most politicians fell all over themselves in keeping a “genteel” distance from it while mouthing tepid support.
Marco Rubio talks about “common good capitalism”. Josh Hawley talks tough on stopping Big Tech.
But they are fakers.
The truth is that should any politician go Attila The Hun on all of these issues, be unwavering and draconian in pursuing them, he would immediately sweep everything before him.
That man would have unlimited success, and the elites that other men cower before would be powerless to stop him.
Until then the High Center awaits its Caesar.
