Judas’s Priests

It is popular in various dissident warrens to characterize mainstream conservatism as a collection of spineless sissies. Sometimes they are drawn as naive idealists who get taken by their more cynical opponents on the Left. Other times they are described as fools operating under a set of “principles” that make it impossible for them to fight the Left effectively. While some of that is certainly true, the reality is conservatism has been a cynical confidence game for a very long time.

Probably the best example of that truth of conservatism is Jonah Goldberg, formerly of National Review and now head of something called The Dispatch. For a couple of decades, Goldberg has played the role of affable right-wing dufus. He was the doughy, easy going every-man, who liked popular culture and goofing off, but was also one of those instinctively conservative guys. He was not going to quote Edmund Burke or even Bill Buckley in his posts. He would quote the Simpsons.

It was a great role for him to play, as he is no one’s idea of an intellectual, but he also has the disheveled goofball look popular in the movies. It was also an effective way to get people to overlook the fact that he was never a natural conservative or even much of a conservative. He was an actor playing a role. He started out in his acting career working for Ben Wattenberg, a far Left radical in the 1960’s and 1970’s, who got on the public television gravy train in the 1980’s.

Wattenberg was associated with the American Enterprise Institute, the symbol of conservative racketeering in Washington. This is the financial engine for the so-called neoconservatives, which means it is staffed with left-wing activists posing as conservatives, in order to promote an imperialist foreign policy agenda. They also peddle libertarian economics on behalf of their corporate sponsors. Ben Wattenberg was one of the first models to roll off their production line.

Goldberg was also a creation of AEI. It was his first job out of college, which is where he was paired up with Wattenberg to be trained as a subversive. Once ready for action, he was installed at National Review. He was then assigned the task of creating their on-line presence, which is where most people became aware of him. His frumpy every-man act became popular with a new generation of conservatives, looking for something more in line with the slacker culture than the Ivy League culture.

This is a good example of how a tiny group of people came to control the conservative establishment in the last century. In order for a conservative writer to get access to a conservative platform, it meant passing muster with a thicket of gatekeepers trained by and controlled by operations like AEI.  If you wanted to write for NRO, it meant getting vetted by Jonah Goldberg. To write for the print side, it meant being vetted by some other think tank approved gatekeeper.

Of course, the main source of control was money. AEI and Heritage are the bottleneck in conservative fundraising. AEI brings in over 50 million in contributions each year, while Heritage hauls in close 100 million. They also control the flow of cash into hundreds of smaller, less well-known non-profits. These operations underwrite conservative publications and conservative book writing. They will bulk-buy a book, thus providing the writer with a nice royalty.

If all of this sounds like a racket, that’s because it is a racket. It is more cynical than that though, as the people running the rackets are terrible people. They lie about what they are doing, causing otherwise well intended people to support things that go against their stated interests. They con rich people into giving them money, which gets used to support the lifestyle of these grifters. They also use their power to attack anyone that challenges their hammerlock on official opposition.

A good recent example of this is something done by Jonah Goldberg. Back in 2018, a woman named Emerald Robinson got a scoop that many so-called conservative publications had been secretly taking cash from the tech monopolies. They were being paid to support the tech monopolies stranglehold on political discourse. Payola has always been a problem with Conservative Inc.  and this looked the latest example of their penchant for pay-for-play shakedowns.

Now, Emerald Robinson was a reporterette for something called One America News Network (OANN), which is an independent media outlet that aims to serve the grassroots conservative. Their audience is the sort of people who support Trump because he is opposed by people like Jonah Goldberg. They are the talk radio crowd that skews more Huey Long than Bill Buckley. Robinson now works for Newsmax, another one of those types of operations.

Goldberg was dispatched to trash her, which he was happy to do. First, he trashed her personally on Twitter. Then he posted a piece on NRO, smearing her as a “failed-actress-turned-faux journalist” and an idiot. He also claimed she had no real evidence to support her claim. He finished by writing, “Look, I honestly suspect Robinson makes up many of her “sources” and that she’s a fake reporter while claiming to wage a war on “fake news.” That’s a serious charge.

It turns out that Goldberg was lying. Google was giving money to National Review and dozens of other so-called conservative operations. His paymasters at AEI were part of the operations to shower Conservative Inc. with payola, so they would do the bidding of the tech oligarchs. There’s simply no way Goldberg did not know this when he smeared Robinson, so his lies were conscious. They required forethought. He also lied when he knew all of his fellow racketeers knew he was lying.

The truth is, the people running Conservative Inc. are not just idealistic naifs being rolled by the bare-knuckled lefties in politics. They are not excessively principled ideologues playing by a set of rules that prevent them from winning. In reality, they are evil subversives grifting off the destruction of the country. They are selling out the people they claim to represent and they do it with enthusiasm. They are soulless grifters, willing to say and do anything to keep the con going.

What makes them especially evil is that they are preying on the most vulnerable people in the country. These are the average white people who have no representation in the halls of power. Mostly, they are happy to be left alone to live their lives. These are the people who trust the system. They are willing to trust others to look out for their interests in Congress and their state legislatures. The GrifterCons prey on these people like jackals, stealing their money and selling out their interests.

The thing that puts these people in a special category is the audacity of their conniving and grifting. When their perfidy is noted, they carry on as if they are the victims of some new pogrom. The American Right has been consumed by army of Judases swarming traditional America like a plague of locusts. Washington has been their playground, their Garden of Gethsemane, for generations now. The best the Right can hope for now is that these people are remembered as well as their inspiration.

Too true but, in case anyone is interested, the infection began as Modernism which was heartily condemned by Pope St. Pius X. As he said: “…. they [the Modernists] should be beaten with fists. In a duel, you don’t count or measure the blows, you strike as you can.” Modernism slithered back under its rocks and it re-emerged carefully during the reign of PiusXII; and it re-emerged “triumphantly” during vatican2. Between St. Pius X and Roncalli, the American Church was also infected with communists: See Bella Dodd’s book School of Darkness or her online video.

I feel the force of Hoffer in this piece, you know, how things devolve into a racket. With much of the present Conservative Inc., it always was.

No need to read it. I did long ago. If you are here commenting, you are beyond the scope of the book—and thankfully the influence of Goldberg. The only purpose Goldberg serves today is to be a “good example of a bad example”

Z-man is savvy enough to use Goldberg as a teaching example. I—not being able to hold a candle to Z-man—can only ignore/regret my Goldberg days and move on, not quite able to say why. Goldberg’s like the proverbial “Chinese dinner”—you’re hungry again in an hour.

Mitt Romney and Liz Cheyney are being promoted as candidates for leadership in the Senate and House GOP after the election. Haley is almost a lock to run for President in 2024. There will be huge push to take back the party and blame all the losses on Trump. It is important to get people to walk away from these grifters before that happens.

That’s definitely a problem. However, once they start putting their solutions on the menu, it’s the same John McCain stuff we’ve always had.

So they can preen that Trump lost, but when they dig up McCain’s corpse and prop it up under an American flag, they’ll have the same reaction in the next set of primaries.

By and large, voters choose from the choices made available to them, who are mostly grifters of various persuasions. Those grifters who most reliably play ball with TPTB get the party sponsorships, dollars, and publicity that are required for getting through the primaries and onto the general ballot. Voters could be less lazy, but it is an uphill battle against a well-coordinated and well-financed system.

Agreed.

There has to be some existential crisis that shakes the system to its core so something new can rise up in its place – it’s the only hope. Unfortunately, it’ll undoubtedly be a painful transition for pretty much everyone.

Perhaps, but you ignore the aspect of evidence taken at the scene—say of your under-investigated burglary. What usually happens is that finger prints and DNA evidence of crime is placed into data bases and then suspects arrested in unrelated crimes are run through these databases. If there’s a match, the suspect is charged. There are of course holes in the process. Bad follow up on arrests. Lack of funding. Still some lack of submission of such evidence. And so forth. But a whole lot of cases, particularly of murder, are being solved that way. Waaay after the incident took place.

The fundamental problem with media is the “advertising revenue model”. With the “donor funding model” as a distillation of all the negatives of the former. Under both, the consumer become the product, the advertisers-donors the real customers and ultimately, the media organization become propaganda outlets. Every advertising or donor supported media organization will follow the NR trajectory at greater or lesser speed.

To his credit, Unz publishes the very same WNs he criticizes. He really does seem to be a free speech absolutist. He has the usual blinders due to his ethnic background in which his kind has historically always felt most comfortable in polyglot societies such that they could play different groups off each other, but I honestly don’t begrudge him that. It’s part of his ethnic nature and it’s on us to recognize and respond to it appropriately. What positions like Unz’s fail to address is that white Americans have a right to desire their own kind simply for that… Read more »

I suspect the collection of all these dissidents in one place is not out of any “free speech” altruism but to eventually “shoot all the fish in the barrel.” All the effort Sailer, Kersey, AE and others put into their work will one day be all gone at the flip of a switch.

Exactly. So many political discussions get bogged down in details about the pros and cons of various issues. It’s idiotic.

The simple, pure statement, “I prefer my own people”, is enough. No further discussion needed.

Why do you want to stop immigration? “They’re not my people, and I want this country for my people.”

Why do you not want to live around blacks? “They’re not my people and I prefer my own kind.”

The extent to which in-group preferences have been suppressed among white people—largely by Unz’s people—at the same time as they are indulged for other groups is unforgivable. The black-white friction Unz refers to is a distraction. Hispanics in the southwest and Asians and Dot Indians in the northwest are far more peaceful and seemingly agreeable, yet they still funnel jobs, housing and other opportunities to their own while shutting out white people. And of course Jewish nepotism is infamous. I’m not even angry at them for this. Of course they favor opportunities for their own; I would think them diseased… Read more »

Other groups view their ethnicity as a family – which, of course, it is. Therefore, what kind of person doesn’t give preference to their family over someone else’s family. What kind of parent would give their child’s inheritance or family business to another person’s child and leave their own child penniless.

I finally got around to reading the Unz link. It is utterly incoherent. He transitions from how horribly wrong opponents of mass migration have been to how all vestiges of historic America may be erased by White communists and their non-White foot soldiers. I would ascribe it, and partially do, to the old Jewish “you fight him” strategy, but no matter how evil, even that lacks the internal contradictions Unz displays.

Not naming the Jew is a terrible strategy and continuing to do so will make things worse for everyone including Jews. The JQ is a problem with a continuous paper trail that stretches back 3000 years.

Of course, it appears as though this make-work is desired because one big issue facing our beloved leaders is how to keep making people feel valuable – and an important sounding job is just the ticket.

I don’t know. My Silent Gen mom was a heritage American and she was on the hook for every bleeding heart leftist cause out there, while my Greatest Gen Dad was the child of immigrants and very conservative. My Stepdad, after my Dad died was also Silent Gen and super liberal despite having been a Marine. He was also a government worker all his life afterward — postal worker. So that probably explains his hard-on for big government.

I concur. I’m in a STEM industry and have all kinds of great stories about how competent and qualified white and to some extent asian males get passed over on promotions, project management opportunities, etc. They usually pack it up and leave or create their own consulting firm where they get hired by their original employer for 2-3 times the money. The corporate inflicted diversity is hitting all medium and large firms at a minimum. There’s no real escaping it at this point and no industry is immune to it in 2020.

Of course, you’re right, but the truth is that the GrifterCons picked an easy mark. Right-leaning Whites eat up the CivNat, colorblind, Invade-the-World/Invite-the-World con. On the other side, White Progressives were easily persuaded to trash their own people and invite our destruction. Yes, mass media controlled by our fellow ((Whites)) laid the groundwork for all of this. But we still allowed it to happen. Imagine someone trying to accomplish something similar in Japan, China or Israel. It wouldn’t happen. The elites and the people would never allow it to get started.

Thanks for this great article, Z Man.

you might have seen the transition the other night when Sean Hannity, grifter extraordinaire, picked up after Tucker Carlson signed off, and be defended Bezos and his obscene billions for proving “goods and services we want, desire, and need” (as long as it’s honest). It created a stir on Twitter.

The transition to the Hannity segment somehow worked, and well.
