By Hada Thier, Jacobin Yet again, both Republican and Democratic party leaders are attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar for telling the truth about American and Israeli war crimes. And yet again, Omar has nothing to apologize for. As sure as the sun rises in the morning, the American political […]
By Tim Challies I grew up in the era of the Cold War. From my youngest days I was taught that the West was the bastion of democratic freedom and the Soviet Union the stronghold of oppressive totalitarianism. We knew who the enemy was, and we knew he […]
By Bill Hull, The Bonhoeffer Project Hard totalitarianism is easy to see. It is Soviet tanks rolling through your streets. It is the secret police in the former East Germany bugging your home, following you, arresting you, torturing you, and imprisoning you with a show trial or no […]
By James M. Patterson, Law Liberty Many Americans today live on edge. The arrival of COVID-19 has introduced an invisible enemy that attacks without reason or mercy. The policy responses of quarantine and shutdown have led to lay-offs, business failures, evictions, and foreclosures. Those still lucky enough to […]
Many critics of the GOP like to focus on figures like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and Louie Gohmert. But it’s important to recognize those are a fringe subset of Republicans just like AOC and Omar are fringe figures among the Democrats. The two parties and their house […]
By Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal, Ron Paul Institute March 2021 marked the 10th anniversary of the Western regime-change war on Syria. And after a decade of grueling conflict, Washington is still maneuvering to extend its longstanding relationship with the Salafi-jihadist militants fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. With […]
The real reason that the Red Tribers hate Ilhan Omar is not that she is from Somalia or a woman or a Muslim. Her status as a Somali Muslim doesn’t win her any points with many Republicans to be sure, but that’s not the real reason that they […]
Since the rise of the Communist Party to power within China, the state has made clear it’s ambitions of becoming a major player in world affairs; initially this meant merely being to the Soviet Union what Britain and the EU were to the United States, but following the […]
With the tremendous political tension both within and between the United States, the European Union, China, and Russia, there’s been a lot of speculation around the possibility of a new large-scale global conflict between the world powers in the form of another Great War. Will World War 3 […]
The most interesting information in this is that the military was split in half in terms of support or opposition to the Trump regime. And it’s obvious that the Biden regime is trying to purge the military of conservatives. What if the mass civil unrest currently being experienced […]
As a follow up to my video on What If Civil War Broke Out Between Republicans and Democrats where we explained who would win, how either side could win, and the long term outcome of a Second Civil War, we’ve come to the conclusion, based on recent events, […]
By MEE staff Pro-Palestinian activists have stormed and taken over a factory in Runcorn, a town in the northwest of England, which it says supplies parts for drones produced by Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit Systems. Palestine Action said in a statement that it had “stormed, scaled, and occupied” the factory, operated by APPH, […]
BY MAJOR NEILL FRANKLIN (RET.) t this point, most people who have studied this issue (including Mr. Sabet) agree that the prohibition of marijuana has been a catastrophe. Police make hundreds of thousands of marijuana arrests each year—663,000 in 2018 alone—wasting time that could be spent solving and preventing […]
By Aila Slisco, Newsweek Two-thirds of American voters now support decriminalizing all drugs, while 83 percent believe that the “war on drugs” has failed, according to a new poll. A 66 percent majority were in favor of “eliminating criminal penalties for drug possession and reinvesting drug enforcement resources […]

Izzy Award-winning Journalist Aaron Maté (https://twitter.com/aaronjmate) calls out media figures who claim to be Left and “anti-interventionist,” while totally ignoring the intervention in the countries they’re reporting on.

These intra-libertarian civil wars are as funny as their parallels on the left. I’ve never called myself a libertarian. For one thing, orthodox libertarians (the Mises-Hayek-Friedman-Rand-Rothbard) were always too corporation-friendly for my tastes. It doesn’t seem to do much good to oppose the king while lionizing the aristocracy. […]
‘Hundreds’ of Whistleblowers Say Military Forcing ‘Anti-American Indoctrination’ on Them: Sen. Cotton
Tom Cotton is a total douchebag and one of the right-wing’s most dangerous figures (as a bridge between the neocons, Likudniks, Saudis, MIC, supply-siders, Reaganites, Trumpists, evangelicals, and nativists). He is also smarter, shrewder, and more calculating than similar figures like Cruz, Rubio, and Hawley. But he is […]
Sound Money Defense League Washington, DC (June 10, 2021) – As foreign governments reportedly accumulate gold and de-dollarize their sovereign wealth funds, a Republican congressman is asking tough questions of the U.S. Treasury about its secretive gold activities. Representative Alex Mooney (R-WV) – sponsor of the Gold Reserve Transparency […]
By Damon Linker, The Week Donald Trump’s presidency was a product of the country’s political polarization, but Trump himself pushed that polarization much further than it was before he took office. His actions during his final weeks in the White House — above all, his denial of his […]
By Felipe Corrêa To deal with the political thought of Errico Malatesta is not a simple task and is something that must be carried out with necessary caution. It is relevant to bear in mind three fundamental questions that run throughout any more careful analysis of his work: […]
By Jukka Savolainen, Slate It’s not hygge, the welfare state, or drinking. It’s reasonable expectations. Is hygge still a thing? The Danish concept of comfortable conviviality and all things cozy is supposed to capture the essence of Danish culture and has been marketed as the secret for happy […]
Whatever one thinks of her choice of terminology, the phenomenon she is pointing out is real.
Whatever works, I guess.
“A motley collection of imbeciles, con artists, thieves, opportunists, and war-mongering generals.” Aesop: “The lower criminals we execute. The higher criminals we elect to high office.”
From 27% to 70% in 25 years. Now if support for the overthrow of the government could only grow at the same pace.
Ilhan is cool.
“Nothing will fundamentally change” – Biden to Wall Street
What they say about Virginia is absolutely correct. We’re moving toward the social policies of California with the economic policies of Alabama.
The media are the only people who like Princess Nancy.
If this surprises you, you just aren’t paying attention. Taxes now go to billionaires, not from them.
Economic nationalists like Saager overrate China just like liberals overrate Russia. China could only “buy” Bush, Clinton, and Biden because they were “for sale” in the first place. China is an economic colony of the US ruling class. It’s interesting how both Marxists and conservatives have an overblown […]
