Here are a couple of many videos I took at the famous lava lake in the Danakil, Erta Ale, the only permanent one of its kind in the world:

My journey to the mountains took me through some towns where poverty is the rule. To call their dwellings “hovels” would be too generous. I did see some nice wildlife in the mountains, but I got sick and had to cut the hiking trek short. Today I’ll be visiting a large castle. It’s supposed to be spectacular.


Hopefully, some of y’all can help this woman.

One of the regular women commenters on this website was diagnosed two weeks ago with Stage IV cervical cancer, after experiencing pain and vaginal bleeding.

She has no health insurance although she is trying to get signed up for Obamacare. My belief is that the doctors don’t want to treat her because she can only pay small amounts out of her limited assets.

She had just fulfilled a dream by moving from California to a quiet rural area in a Southern state last summer. Thus, she is rather alone in her time of need. It’s just her and her cat.

The cervical cancer has spread to surrounding tissue. Her doctor says no surgery, no radiation, no chemo…

My brother sent me this link. I thought it was amazing enough to share with the rest of y’all:

I hope Mr. Spencer doesn’t mind if I reproduce today’s letter, from him, here:


Dear ,

Never in my life have I faced such adversity . . . never have I been so inspired.

By now, you’ve probably heard the stories coming out Budapest: our conference being banned by the Hungarian Prime Minister . . . our perseverance and willingness to take a stand for our ideals . . . our speakers being threatened with deportation . . . my arrest and imprisonment by the Hungarian state for thought-crimes . . . and our event taking place, against all odds.

Crises reveal character. And I am tremendously proud of our how our institution and broader movement responded. Despite the government’s ban, attendees came from around the world to meet fellow Europeans and have a conversation about our future. After I was arrested and detained, Jared Taylor, aided by comrades, stepped into my place and hosted what was, from what I hear, a joyous and stimulating gathering.

The night of my arrest encapsulated the dual nature of this past weekend—adversity and inspiration. I was apprehended by police in a Budapest pub, where dozens of attendees and I had gathered to build fellowship before the next day’s conference. The room was filled with our European family: Britons, Canadians, Scandinavians, Flemish, Croatians, and more. We instantly became old friends, though most of us were meeting each other for the first time.

I was reminded of the need for groups like The European Congress, a forum and meeting point for European identitarians and traditionalists.

And I was reminded of the necessity of The National Policy Institute.

At NPI, we produce original writings on RadixJournal.com, featuring the work of Gregory Hood, Michael McGregor, and all the regulars. We publish new books, with a lineup that ranges from Richard Lynn to Piero San Giorgio to Tito Perdue to Alexander Dugin. We host conferences and public events, which have featured, among many others, Alain de Benoist, Tomislav Sunic, and Jack Donovan.

We are doing things that are powerful, things that are getting noticed, and things that rock the boat.

We are willing to take risks. And we are willing to take hits.

There are certainly more pleasant ways of spending a weekend than in a Hungarian jail; however, if I were to do it over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. We must never lose our nerve as our adversaries react . . . and overreact . . . and try to shut down our projects. (And if we’re not upsetting the establishment a litte bit, then we’re probably doing it wrong.)

We’re more powerful than we might believe. Our power stems from our resolve, from our pride, and from our audacity.

And you make it possible. Your tax-deductible donations to NPI are the lifeblood of everything we do. Giving to us is a direct way of aiding your comrades who have taken risks and made sacrifices. It’s a way to “do something.”


Over the past week, our movement and our ideas have received a tremendous amount of coverage, and generated sympathy and good will from surprising sources. Our challenge is to ensure that this doesn’t become just another passing moment, but instead becomes a watershed in the rediscovery of European consciousness.

Mercy Inflation

During a recent day at work, I observed three different coworkers taking mercy upon lowly creatures. As I swatted a fly in the break room, a woman cried, “Don’t kill it; it’s only a fly!” Then, when I expressed a desire to do away with a moth, another individual gently scooped it up and let it loose outside. Later that day, yet another worker picked up a moth and walked a full 70 feet or so to set it free outside.

“What is the world coming to?” I thought. To the best of my knowledge, none of the aforementioned individuals were vegetarians – so their objection to killing other creatures seems to be one of convenience. It was obvious that these people consider such mercy, toward lowly creatures, to be meritorious. I disagree. It’s the same mentality that wants to grant A’s to all students, “winner” status to all sports competitors, and loads of (unearned) money to all people. The end result will not be more mercy, love and tolerance in the world. On the contrary. The end result will be a cheapening of the quality of mercy.

The ancient Jewish sages referred to insect pests as “cursed creatures.” They understood that mercy is not a commodity that should be wasted with wonton abandon. They said, “He who has compassion upon the cruel is destined to be cruel to the compassionate.”

It is an ominous omen for so many young people to have compassion upon flies and moths. It doesn’t mean that these lowly creatures have been elevated to the level of Mankind. What it means is that Mankind will ultimately be lowered to the level of flies and moths. In the end, in the not-so-distant future, the taking of a human life will be as inconsequential as the taking of a fly’s life.

Oregon’s Wilson River

The reason I don’t take vacations during the summer is that there are few places I’d rather be than Oregon in the summer. Among my favorite places is the Wilson River. It winds along Highway 6 from Tillamook State Forest to the Pacific Ocean via the town of Tillamook. There are many fine hiking trails, swimming holes, fishing spots and parks along the way. Traveling along Highway 6, it’s a good idea to stop whenever you see a group of cars parked alongside the road; it’s a good indication that there’s a nice spot nearby.

Even though our summers have been starting later, and finishing later, over the years, most of the population hasn’t caught on. Therefore, even though we’ve had a series of very warm days this October, the beautiful spots along the Wilson River are practically devoid of people. It’s a good time to enjoy the clear water (still not too cold to swim in) and the scenery. Here are a few shots I took a couple of days ago.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASitting by the river and watching the water flow by is a good way to clear one’s mind of the clutter of modern life. Many insights have come to me while contemplating the eddies and ripples of the water over the rocks.

Orania: How could they have not known?

It would appear that the leaders of Orania allowed/invited a crew from the BBC to enter their town and poke around. Considering the known anti-white bias of the BBC, I wonder how Orania could have been so naive. Did they really believe they would get an honest, unbiased writeup? Here’s the article. Read it for yourself and see how many lies, distortions and biased comments you can find in it. Obviously, the authors don’t think white people have the right to be left alone – even in a small town in the middle of nowhere.

Two items caught my attention in yesterday’s Oregonian:

“Teen faces rape, other charges in Lane County” and “Racial impact tool to roll out soon.”

The first article, which has a similar online version, illustrates the Mexican crime problem in Oregon:

A 17-year-old on a field trip to an Oregon Ducks game organized by the Washington County Juvenile Department managed to slip away and allegedly rape a woman outside the stadium.

The accused rapist, identified as Jaime Tinoco, was discovered by a police dog near Autzen Stadium the night of Sept. 13 after he reportedly grabbed a 39-year-old woman and dragged her into the bushes, according to KATU-TV.

Tinoco was on a trip to Eugene to watch a football game at the University of Oregon with a group of about a dozen teens being supervised while on probation…

There were four employees from the Washington County department watching the group when Tinoco walked away. The program is an alternative to detention that develops life skills and socialize teens instead of slapping on additional prison time.

I suppose we could consider the ability to rape “life skill” and “socialization.” This skill might come in handy, for Jaime, while in prison.

The other article, so far only in the print version, has more to do with a push for leniency for black criminals. It’s titled:

“Racial impact tool to roll out soon,” and here’s a quote:

Calling them “a good first step toward justice,” state Sen. Chip Shields on Tuesday outlined how he hopes new “racial impact statements” will address racial disparities in criminal sentencing and child welfare cases in Oregon…

Momentum behind the effort to draft such statements is drawn from statistics showing that, among other things, African Americans make up about 2 percent of Oregon’s general population but about 10 percent of the state’s prison population.

It seems to me that 10% is suspiciously low; it should be more like 20% – when we consider the overall criminality of blacks. I’m very close to a person who got in trouble with the law, here in Oregon, and he told me of his own experiences in jail – among them the fact that blacks are wildly overrepresented among the hardened criminals he encountered. I’m convinced that our “justice” department has been wary of being called “racist” for many  years, and that it metes out lighter sentences to blacks with this in mind. This might have been the case with the person I’m close with – who can pass for black himself.

To all but those in the media and politics, it should be obvious that blacks are overrepresented in the prison system because they commit more crime. Not because they are subject to racism in the police force or the “justice” department. This being the case, practically all laws will have a disparate impact upon blacks – as they will against men. Any attempt to soften this impact will have the effect of encouraging even more criminal behavior from blacks. As this increase in criminal behavior trickles down into the prison system, more cries of “racism” will be heard, and yet more leniency demanded. It’s a vicious cycle. What we need is harsher sentencing for blacks and Hispanics, not more leniency. Only harsher sentencing can reverse their spiral into lawlessness. Only harsher sentencing can protect the rest of us from their depredations.
