One of the great forces behind the Conservative revival and the crumbling of the failing institutions of the left has been books of political philosophy. Authors such as Ann Coulter became best sellers by challenging the comfortable leftist status-quo.
But Coulter, for all her charms, was by no means the only one. One of my personal favourite writers is Economist Thomas Sowell. An African-American he clawed his way up from poverty and out of the stifling embrace of leftism to become a pre-eminent Economist. He is Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.
Before I became a Conservative, before I studied computing or law, my undergraduate degree was in Economics and Sowell is a master. His logical, thoughtful and reality-rooted analysis has made him a bulwark of right-wing thought and of course a hate figure to the left. “The Vision of the Annointed”, is an important book and deserves a place on every right-wing bookshelf.
Reddit claims to be committed to free speech. In reality, it seems to be committed to free speech until it becomes embarrassing or commercially inconvenient. With breath-taking amorality Reddit played host to /r/Coontown for years only to turn on them when they made adverse headlines. Whilst banning /r/Coontown it ignored the plethora of openly paedophile subreddits such as /r/Pedofriends. Now, MHN exposes something far, far worse.

In the run-up to the 2016 United States Presidential elections, the Chief Executive of Reddit, Steve Huffman, came into dispute with users of the Donald Trump supporters’ subreddit /r/The_Donald. They once again pointed out the apparently hypocritical targeting of them, using as their example the /r/PedoFriends subreddit. This sub-forum was allegedly a support group for ‘reforming’ paedophiles. However in reality they openly discussed such things as the challenges of downloading child pornography.
This is yuge. UK Business insider has just revealed (archive here) that due to a software error Twitter has been accidentally reporting higher advertising metrics for some video adverts by up to 35%. This led to customers being overbilled, although they have now received refunds. At roughly the same time, the Chief Technology Officer of Twitter Adam Messinger and Vice President of Product Josh McFarland have also announced their departures from the troubled social media network (archive here).

The electoral college results today dramatically confirmed Donald Trump as President-Elect of the United States of America, now on course for inauguration on 20th January 2017. Meanwhile in the ultimate humiliation, whilst leftists had sought to make the electoral collage undo the will of the people and the election results, it was Hillary Rodham Clinton who had 7 times as many faithless voters as Trump.
In the ultimate humiliation, in the electoral college vote today Hillary Clinton suffered 7 times as many defections by faithless electors as Donald Trump. Leftists are now campaigning to stop the, ‘fascist regime’ ‘before it starts’. MHN says it WAS stopped. Click for full size.
Despite the ongoing humiliation and rejection, leftist hysteria over the election result has grown and some are now effectively advocating massive civil unrest across the United States in an effort, by their own admission, to overturn the results of a lawful election.
The idea that one of the vipers in the toxic, writhing nest otherwise known as the Democratic Party is behind the leak is vastly more plausible than the idea of some surreal international conspiracy or (see below) the line some leftists are peddling about a plot by space aliens.
Even so, it would be perfectly understandable if Russia and its President Vladimir Putin had decided to put the case for Donald Trump? Why not? During her election campaign Hillary Rodham Clinton planned to establish, ‘no fly zones’ (archive here) in Syria. This led to warnings from retired US military pilots that the reckless policy could provoke a war with Russia.
Worse, the conflict in Syria repeats the same mistakes that have coloured all of western interventions in the Middle East for the past several decades. The Middle East contains many countries and many factions. Almost none of them favours democracy, an idea that the west continues to try to impose despite total, catastrophic, ruinous failure on each attempt.
The most recent disaster is the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in the aftermath of the removal of Saddam Hussein. Is there a democracy in Iraq? No – there is a medieval theocracy beheading and burning that according to Bloomberg news sells children aged 1-9 as sex slaves for $165 each (archive here).
A professional looking profile, @RealPresidentTrump, has appeared on free speech social network Gab.ai (archive here). However whilst its posts so far have been eloquent and appropriate there is no blue verified check.

It seems inconceivable that Andrew Torba would delay more than a micro-second between a call from the Trump team and verifying an account for the real President-elect. Even MHN has a verified checkmark. There has also been no announcement from any other source.
Rumours of buyers come and go, giving temporary boosts to the company before dissipating into the mists. The fundamental problem with Twitter is that years after it was first set up it still is not making its owners any money. At the same time, Twitter has been criticised for failing to deal with terrorism, paedophilia, bullying and also with political bias.
The late 20th and early 21st centuries have seen a bizarre role reversal between Russia and America. Where the cold war saw a free market west fighting a communist Russia, now in a bizarre role reversal we see a free-market Russian leader facing aggression from extreme left wingers in the United States, such as lawyers calling for the bombing of Russia (archive here). Whilst it was once the Soviet Union that was undemocratic, now the Left in the United States seeks to undo the outcome of the presidential elections.

Years ago I was a member of the British equivalent of the Democratic Party, Labour. It is easy to support a party like Labour or the Democrats when you are young. They promise a paradise with glib soundbites. They have a ready made villain – their opponents. Most of your teachers will be enthusiastic supporters. Like a Saturday morning cartoon it is all so simple, with goodies and baddies ready made.
Then reality sets in. Every left-wing government that has ever been elected has failed to deliver on its promises because the fantasies that they sell to well meaning, decent people can never be achieved. No socialist government can achieve its vague utopia any more than King Canute could stop the tide coming in or Angela Merkel can repeal the law of gravity.
Hark! Elfin characters on the front of a packet of Kellogg’s Rice Crispies listen for the sound of, “Snap, Crackle and Pop”. Having read Dr Kellogg’s vile history though, the sound is spoiled. One cannot help but imagine the sound of acid as it dissolves flesh. Click for full size.
In light of the recent controversy over Kellogg’s, MHN editor Sam Smith explains why he is joining the Kellogg’s boycott and why readers should too. Kellogg’s was founded by an eccentric Victorian who blamed the world’s ills on masturbation. Whilst this in itself would be harmless, he gave advice to parents on abusive ways to treat children suspected of masturbation and carried out clitoridectomies (removal of the clitoris) on underage girls.
The modern Kellogg’s company does not endorse female genital mutilation but in 2016 has been linked to child labour involving 8 to 14 year olds. Kellogg’s has also withdrawn its advertising from Breitbart News over “values”.
Cornflakes were invented by Dr John Harvey Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg (who went on to later found the eponymous company). The food was invented as a by-product of the brothers’ running of a well-known hospital of the era called the Battle Creek Sanitarium.
Treatments available at the hospital included the following –
Recently Reddit users, especially /r/The_Donald have been petitioning vigorously for Reddit CEO Steve Huffman to resign. Users have also called for a boycott on the purchase of ‘Reddit gold’. The reasons for this are twofold –
Firstly, Reddit staff are perceived as hostile to one of its most popular and active subreddits. Secondly, whilst he is openly opposed to those who support his own country’s president-elect Donald Trump, Huffman is happy to allow horrific paedophile text chat board on Reddit, including users who claim to work with children and to masturbate over them.

/r/Pedofriends is a text only subreddit hosted on Reddit and open to all. The forum takes advantage of a loophole in the law – text discussion of paedophilia is legal in Britain, the United States and other English speaking countries. The subreddit claims to only allow constructive discussion amongst paedophiles who wish to resist their urges and change their ways. It claims that discussion of children and illegal activities is prohibited. The forum is still sickening so, legal or not, I encourage readers spend no more time there than necessary to verify it is real.
The moderators of /r/Pedofriends insist they do not allow discussion of illegal activities.
Under Steve Huffman’s leadership Reddit bans Conservative forums, but acts as a haven for paedophiles to discuss how oppressed they feel when searching for child pornography on Google causes legal warnings to appear.
