By Damon Root, Reason In 2019, the California Court of Appeal, 1st Appellate District, ruled that a police officer may always enter a suspect’s home without a warrant if the officer is in pursuit of the suspect and has probable cause to believe that the suspect has committed […]
By James Keltner, Mises Institute These days, it sure looks like they have them right where they want them. Using the storming of the Capitol Building as a pretext, the media-government alliance has targeted Trump, his supporters, and their fellow travelers harder than ever before. Many on the […]
The purge is moving along a lot more rapidly than even I would have thought.
By No-Wing Anarchy, Medium The Bolshevik “betrayal” of anarchists during the Russian Revolution is a commonly known, and almost overly debated instance where anarchism has come into open and bloody conflict with leftism. There is no end to the accusations of murder at Kronstadt, or in Ukraine, and […]
@Peter Zeihan analyses the recent developments of Covid and geopolitics. @Zeihan on Geopolitics also explores a global geopolitical view of the post-covid world.
David French is a total fraud whose only function is to serve as Bill Kristol’s butt buddy. The neocons’ strategy in response to Trumpism was to attempt to both co-opt Trumpism and embed themselves in his administration, while at the same time working to undermine him by forming […]
It appears that, increasingly, some of the most hysterically fanatical anti-racist people are white, while individuals and groups that are labeled racist or even white supremacist are becoming more ethnically diverse. This is an interesting cultural phenomenon. While controversies involving race conflict or which overlap with race issues […]
In the developing world where armed struggle is viable and, often, actually taking place, yes. In the USA, an “anarchist army” would merely be a bunch of dumbasses who ended up shooting themselves or getting taken down by the feds after falling into some kind of entrapment scheme. […]
By Barbara Boland, The American Conservative Why would the ambassador of a country with just 1.5 million citizens feel able to shout at a member of the U.S. Congress? “Because for decades, we have pursued a foreign policy that put their interests ahead of our own,” wrote Trita […]
The European Union’s top foreign policy official has called for a concerted effort to use what he has referred to as a “diplomatic window of opportunity” in order to revive a 2015 nuclear agreement signed between Iran and major world powers. “This is an occasion that we cannot […]
Actually, there are a lot more than these, particularly when single-issue or identity-driven conflicts are included. I would generally be fine with any of those as long as they are voluntary or at least localized enough where exit costs are low enough to make them quasi-voluntary. Although some […]
They’re not so much “wrong” as “unnecessary” at least when applied in a statist context. I suppose any kind of society would always have conflicts between those who want to remain static or turn back the clock, and those who want to experiment with new ways of doing […]
By David Hines, The American Conservative Conservatives, elected and unelected, need to think proactively about mutual aid. I had a different column or six in the hopper for this week, but then Ted Cruz ran into a buzzsaw of criticism for trying to sneak in a Cancun vacation […]
By George Petras, Karina Zaiets and Veronica Bravo | USA TODAY Nearly 20 months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President George W. Bush stood on an aircraft carrier under a giant “Mission Accomplished” banner and declared “major combat operations in Iraq have ended.” Nearly 18 years later, the U.S. […]
The only real function of elections is to decide which pro-wrestling promotion will get to staff the political wing of the military-industrial-complex for the next four years. Will it be WWE or WCW this time?
Rarely I have seen an image that summarizes what the Democraps are really about better than this.
Spencer Sunshine once said that there were four categories he favored excluding from the Left: 1) tankies; 2) TERFS; 3) Anti-Semites; 4) Cops. Given Alexander Reid Ross’s latest shenanigans, it looks like Spencer is going to have to rescind #4.
The Proud Boys fracture? About what? The jerkers vs. anti-jerkers? The System is fracturing. The Red and Blue tribes are fracturing. And the fringes of the Red and Blue tribes are fracturing. Awesome. By Marissa J. Lang, Washington Post As members of the Proud Boys arrived at the […]
Alexander Reid-Ross and his friends are folks who have lambasted me for years for daring to talk to anti-system tendencies with less than woke views about a lot of things. But this is apparently who they find acceptable. Anarcho-cops/anarcho-spooks. It had to happen, I suppose. Check out The […]
By David E. Sanger, New York The decision will disappoint the human rights community and members of his own party who complained during the Trump administration that the U.S. was failing to hold Mohammed bin Salman accountable. WASHINGTON — President Biden has decided that the diplomatic cost of […]
By B. Venkat Mani, TELOS On November 26, 2020, when international borders were still partially closed due to the global coronavirus pandemic, a new democratic and peaceful movement was taking shape in India, led by farmers. They wanted to register their protest against three contentious agricultural reform laws […]
Some QAnon type needs to primary this bitch.
The War on Drugs is the most disastrous domestic policy the US has pursued in the past century.
I have long suspected that Alexander Reid-Ross has some kind of law enforcement and/or intelligence connection. This segment with Jimmy Dore and Max Blumenthal would seem to confirm it.
My interview with Liberty Lockdown podcast. Listen here. “A lot of people believe anarchism is a utopic dream, one which has never existed and never could. Today I had on a college professor named Keith Preston who is truly an expert in the area of anarchist history. If […]
Bill Kristol, the neocons’ heir to the throne, has called for the neocons to align themselves with Bidenism. Geez, I wonder why. President Biden ordered air strikes against an Iranian-backed militia group in eastern Syria after the group fired rockets at U.S. troops. NBC News’ Kristen Welker reports.
A third voice is needed in this debate that addresses questions of scale. For the first five or so years that I was an anarchist, I had more or less the same views as Brenton and Non-Compete. Then I moved to a position more like David Friedman’s and […]
–Chris Smalls, former Amazon employee who has become a leader of the e-commerce labor rights movement, joins David to discuss his activism, time working at Amazon, and much more
From what I can gather “wokesters” come in at least five basic categories: ruling class elements seeking to incorporate progressive movements from recent decades into their self-legitimating ideology; professional class ladder-climbers engaged in virtue-signaling; quasi-religious zealots bent on moral purity akin to the Mormons and their “words of […]
A comment on social media sums up US politics perfectly, both mainstream and marginal. “Watching people shift from arguing about the merits of pop-punk to which strain of Marxism they like the best without changing tone or argumentation method is a real headfuck.” Says another commenter: “I’ve compared […]
Ironically, Donald Trump was the first US president to formally recognize an anarchist polity. By Matthew Singer, Williamette Week Portland, it’s finally safe to come out from your panic bunker: There is no more anarchy in PDX. Not officially, anyway. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden issued an executive order repealing several actions implemented by […]

As I’ve said before, some Republicans will increasingly embrace Christian Democrat or national-populist rhetoric as class divisions continue to widen. Team Rising discusses Republican plans for raising the minimum wage.
This is some important commentary. This is how Chinese or Saudi levels of censorship could make its way to the Western countries. Saagar Enjeti reacts to reports that Democratic members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce wrote to Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, Dish, Verizon, Cox and more […]
Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti discuss Biden’s failures in the first month of his presidency.
The SJW version of when the Falwellites were claiming the Teletubbies were turning kids gay.
I’ve noticed this change of terminology as well.
By Caitlin Johnstone The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Arkansas’ anti-BDS law violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution, because it plainly does. “The Arkansas Times has successfully challenged a law that prohibits the state from doing business with companies that boycott Israel,” Mondoweiss reports. […]
By Peter R. Quinones This was my introduction at a fundraiser for Ross Ulbricht. Lyn, his mom, was sitting right in front of me as I delivered it. My good friend Vin Armani was there as well. I was just trying not to lose it. I did when […]
This debate was a reminder of why I prefer elite theory and institutional/behavioral economics rather than Marxism or Austrianism.
It’s funny how left and right are respectively blaming capitalism and socialism for the Texas blackout.
By Matt Purple, The American Conservative Before the current realignment but after the one Karl Rove tried to engineer, there was yet another attempt to realign American politics. A small crew of antiwar Republicans wanted to push the neoconservatives out of the party and maybe even over to […]
