A Hitler Defender Calls Me Out

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016


I recently wrote an article on Hitler’s military leadership. I called him the biggest military fool in history. Hitler failed to crush the British army at Dunkirk in May 1940. On June 22, 1941, he ordered the army to invade the Soviet Union. He declared war on the United States on December 11, 1941. Three […]

Oh, My Aching Swaggart Back

Written by Gary North on October 22, 2016


It’s the 30th anniversary of my aching back. It’s better these days. I sit in a Herman Miller Embody chair. Yet the story is a strange one. In 1986, I was speaking at the New Orleans gold conference. I had spoken there several times over the years. My partner John Mauldin had come along. He […]

Written by Gary North on July 23, 2016


In early September, 1980, Ronald Reagan came to Dallas to deliver a speech to 15,000 Christians at Reunion Arena (since torn down).

Demographic Suicide: Europe, Pat Buchanan, and Islam

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016


Except when he offers his views on tariffs, namely, that sales taxes on imports would help America, I like Pat Buchanan’s views. He sees that the West is in a state of moral decline. He sees that Europe is committing suicide demographically. This is visible in the various national birth rates: below replacement rate of […]

Should We Legislate Immorality?

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016


“You can’t legislate morality!” How many times have you heard that one? Too many, I’ll bet. Have you ever sat down and thought through the implications of this humanist slogan? Does anyone really know what it means? We all know how it’s used: to try to reduce support for a proposed law that the complainer […]
