    I’m retiring this blog for the time being because I don’t have the time to update it anymore. I’ll keep it up in the event that I’ll be able to return to it in the future.

    You can follow me at my main blog and on Twitter. Thanks to all my readers.

    I’m heading to Cleveland tomorrow to begin my coverage of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, so there likely won’t be any updates to this blog until I return to Chicago in two weeks. To follow my coverage, check out my main blog. My Twitter account @basedmattforney has also been restored, so you can follow me there as well.

    The radicalized Amerikaners reach the same, the sociopolitical distinctions start to dissolve into a new shared identity and subculture around the rough vision of some kind of authoritarian pro-white spacefaring future, and we have our subculture of hip and intellectual right-wingers, who could staff and program the civilian governance arm of a Trump-brand military dictatorship. We aren’t anywhere near that level of readiness yet, but give it another decade and a whole lot more research and organization, and when Eric, Donald Jr., or Ivanka Trump run in 2024, things could look very different.

    The next steps for the alt-right.

    Secondly, political experts say making a good choice for a VP running mate can’t help a candidate much, but a bad choice can hurt. Pence doesn’t do much to help, but he also doesn’t do much to hurt. So he’s a safe choice on that dimension. And he has plenty of government experience, as Trump says he needs. So Pence helps solve for Trump’s lack of experience. But those effects are all marginal.

    Mike Pence on the state of the presidential race.
