Less a disciplined political machine than what venture capitalist and hard-right political kingmaker Peter Thiel—who’s delivered the opening keynote at all three NatCon conferences in the US—calls a “ragtag Rebel alliance,” the array of voices clustered under the NatCon banner align around a number of goals and priorities. These include a near-total moratorium on immigration (whether documented or not); a robust Christian nationalism to dominate the public square; a rollback of LGBTQ rights; economic nationalism and opposition to “globalist” supranational institutions; hostility to China as a civilizational enemy; a seething vendetta against so-called “woke elites” in cultural, academic, economic and governmental institutions; a fuzzy, ill-defined economic populism; and an increasing willingness to “get comfortable,” as thought leader Rod Dreher puts it after the conference, “using state power to achieve conservative ends.

What unites the NatConners, beyond any specific policy lane or proposal, is the burning conviction that societal institutions are in decay, degeneracy and collapse—from the military to churches, public schools to government institutions, corporations to sports teams, and most distressingly of all, the conservative movement. This is due to what one called the “cancer” of wokeness and can be traced back, for many, to the entire Enlightenment project of liberalism, democracy and human rights itself.

Only a foundational spiritual renewal—grounded in what they claim to be the timeless, eternal truths of Biblical conservatism—can cleanse the body politic of the US and the West from the corrupting sins of relativism, subjectivism and ‘wokeness’ and institute a new regime of ‘virtue.’

Recycling a litany of woes familiar to anyone who watches Fox News—from the presence of trans women athletes on sports teams, to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in corporate boardrooms; from woke universities to Drag Queen Story Hour—most speakers at NatCon offer little more than an intellectual sheen, an anti-modern flourish, to the rote and tired moral panic that characterizes today’s conservative movement. Each speaker races to outdo the next in offering the most bleak and doom-laden prognosis of the fallen era. (...)

The Elite Movement Laying the Foundation for a MAGA That Will Outlast Trump and Remake America: Inside NatCon Part I
“Most people can’t even articulate a political thought. Like, why do they get to vote? It’s stupid.”

It’s the evening of September 11, and I’m sipping whiskey by the bar at a 4-star resort hotel in Miami, as a 29-year-old financial analyst, R., outlines his desire to dismantle democracy with an intense, focused composure. All around us, dozens of mostly young white men sporting smart blazers—a motley crew of conservative political operatives, think tank analysts, journalists, academics, and students—mingle by the resort’s open-air pool and palm trees, cigars and drinks in hand, sharing their own distaste for liberal democracy, and their plans to turn that distaste into action. One day into the third annual National Conservatism conference, and after a long afternoon of impassioned speeches about the culture war, R. is fired up—and maybe slightly drunk.

“I reject equality,” R. tells me as I strain to hide my alarm behind a veneer of curiosity. Citing fascist thinkers like Julius Evola and Carl Schmitt, he endorses white nationalist ‘race realism’—the pseudoscientific theory that different racial groups carry biological and genetic differences that manifest in group disparities in IQ, wealth, moral and social norms, and more—and rails against “bio-Leninism,” the Left’s supposed strategy to mobilize biologically low-status social groups in order to win power.

What’s needed, R. tells me, is “a status hierarchy where you have a healthy society, with good values promoted and degenerate things shunned.” If he could snap his fingers and institute his ideal political system in the US overnight, I ask him, what would it be? “An absolute monarchy,” he replies without hesitation. “If you don’t have a positive vision of what your morality should be, and have the conviction to say, ‘we’re right, everyone has to obey these rules’—then the Left will impose their shitty rules, like chopping up children in the womb, or ridiculous things like pregnant men.

”All around us, conference attendees continue to sip cocktails, exchange business cards and discuss their own fervent opposition to bodily autonomy, LGBTQ rights, racial justice movements like Black Lives Matter, ‘wokeness,’ and liberalism more broadly, alongside more bread-and-butter topics like the challenges of working on Capitol Hill, conservative legal strategy, and the likelihood of a DeSantis presidential run in 2024. I ask R. if his penchants for natural inequality, hierarchy, and dominance are popular among other NatCon attendees.

Undoubtedly, he replies. But while most of the Extremely-Online movements that espouse these ideas, like the white nationalist America First/groyper movement or the neoreactionary ‘Dark Enlightenment’ movement, have been politically marginal and ineffective, the people gathered at NatCon know how to get things done. They understand, as R. puts it, that “you have to try to operate within the rules of the game…you have to try and kill the bio-Leninist regime from within.” (...)



Sounds like they want to prop-up their woke elite.

Now that the Truth Social thing has seen subpoenas, right on schedule there’s all kinds of 4chan/Hunter Biden crap dropped. They apparently hacked into his account and have pics of him doing Bad Things. The timing is, of course, purposeful.

Fortunately, he is no longer being granted patents by the Chinese, or serving in a role as an official White House Senior Advisor, or scoring $2B in deals from other nations. Because that would be wrong.
