The Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation and its publishing imprint, FGF Books, seeks to inform and educate leaders and
the public on the need to safeguard and defend the basic elements of Western Civilization and its chief foundation, Christianity. We do this, in part,
by publishing columns and books of great writers of the "Old Right" (a.k.a. "Alt Right") such as
Joseph Sobran, Samuel T. Francis, and other
columnists, essayists and authors. Every week, we post new columns at this page from our writers and colleagues.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Why is socialism still so popular? A superb conference at Cato recently
addressed the issue with new insights and reasoning. Socialism should be discredited in this age of incredible abundance and progress: hunger has
declined from 30 percent of the world's population to some 10 percent, yet with billions more mouths to feed.
The Defection of David Brock by Joe Sobran
September 22, 2016
[Classic: March 10, 1998] — David Brock has become the first journalist to confess his participation in the vast right-wing conspiracy to
get President Clinton. Actually, he confessed it last year, but nobody was listening.
Phyllis Schlafly: An Anti-War Conservative who Supported Goldwater, Reagan, and Trump by Jon Basil Utley
September 7, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Phyllis Schlafly was a giant of the conservative movement. And she opposed America's recent wars. An early fighter,
who started up with opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment to the constitution, died at 92 years old.
[Special from The Catholic Thing] — Two quite intelligent women came by independent of one another this week, one an accomplished hospital
nurse who specialized in exotic diseases, the other a longtime educational specialist with wide artistic interests. Very different personalities,
but eerily alike in expressing, without provocation, their deep distress at "not understanding anything" anymore. Not understanding America or the
president, the Church or the pope, the world and its seeming descent into a cultural wasteland and social chaos.
Two Cheers for Theocracy by Joe Sobran
August 25, 2016
[SOBRAN’S THE REAL NEWS OF THE MONTH, February 1999] — I grew up in a theocracy. I didn’t
realize it as a boy; in fact I never heard it described that way. The only reason I now know it was a theocracy is that people who want to
restore the America of the Fifties — anti-abortion Catholics, the “Christian Right” — are accused of wanting to
establish a theocracy. Read More
[Special from The Catholic World Report] — In 1980, as a priest not yet thirty years of age, I found myself placed in charge of developing local chapters of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights on the entire eastern seaboard.
Those were heady days with Pope John Paul II truly coming into his own and determined to correct course for the Catholic Church and President Ronald Reagan seeking to do the same for the United States and, by extension, for the world.
[Classic: November 18, 1997] — There is no popular demand for war with Iraq or anyone else, and President Clinton knows it. The pressure for war is coming
from the usual quarters: those who, for various reasons, want the United States to dominate the Middle East.
[Classic: April 8, 1999] — As he ordered the bombing of Kosovo, Bill Clinton assured the nation that he has been “reading up on the history of that area.” That’s a
load off! The great war-time presidents have always realized that before you bomb a country, you should read up on it.
[Classic: July 1996] — I keep catching myself hoping that Bill Clinton will be reelected. It isn't just that Bob Dole richly deserves to
lose; it's that mere electoral defeat would be an inadequate comeuppance for the Clintons. They are headed for their own Watergate, and
it would be a pity to see the drama aborted. I'm only moderately vindictive: I want them hounded out of office, not hounded after they've already left.
The Selfless President by Joe Sobran
July 21, 2016
Ever the moral ham, Clinton continues to feign contrition, laying it
on a little thicker with each attempt. Every time he sheds his skin,
he wants us to believe he’s no longer a snake.
[Classic: January 21, 1996] — Bill Clinton is a New Democrat again. Having tarred the Republicans as extremists, he is filching their themes, thereby
displaying one of his defining qualities: an utter incapacity for embarrassment. Read More
Diane Speaks His Piece by Joe Sobran
July 13, 2016
[Classic: October 19, 2004] — I have no idea who “Diane” is, but his e-mail message sounds angry with me. In fact, Diane says he is “deeply offended” by the “pure bigotry” of my column of September 21, “Equality Run Amok,” which he finds “demeaning.”
You may think Diane is an odd name for a guy, but that’s Diane’s point. He claims to be a woman, “simply a woman,” and identifies himself, in case you haven’t already guessed, as a “transsexual.” Read More
[Classic: September 21, 2004] — In a recent column, I made an observation about the vocal “gay community” that may bear amplification.
On the one hand, these advocates tell us - us presumptive “straights” - that people’s “sexual orientation” should be of no concern to us.
Then they turn around and tell us that their “orientation” is the most important thing in the world to them - the very source of their “identity” and a matter of “pride.” Read More
