Scumbag Bolton plots mass murder in Iran.
This speech might have just as well been delivered by a member of the Bloods and titled, “Anti-Cripism and the Bloods’ Fear of Power.” Although it’s probably more appropriate to compare this stuff to “Ghostbusters” than to street gangs. Increasingly, I am leaning toward the view that the […]
It is fascinating to observe the kind of paranoia that is now being disseminated by the Western elites in the face of the rising though very modest challenges that are now being presented by the BRICS-Shia-Global South alliance in international relations, and by left/right populist tendencies within Western […]
The Left has Refuse Fascism. The Right has Resist Marxism. Fair enough. By Luke Barnes Think Progress Resist Marxism markets itself as a harmless conservative and libertarian group. But they have plenty of connections to the far-right. Over the past few months, the so-called “alt-right” has found itself […]

Some hysterical hand-wringing from the ruling class press over Italy. Maybe some of these Antifa guys can start writing for the Financial Times. By Wolfgang Muchau Financial Times Comparing today’s populists and nationalists to the Nazis and fascists of 80 or 90 years ago is pointless. But I […]
Back in the early 2000s, I was writing about how a resurgent Russia might eventually being to lead an alliance of resistance to the Western axis, and how the emergence of populism from both the left and right might challenge the neoliberal Western ruling classes. It seems to […]
By Paul Gottfried The American Conservative Several years ago I wrote an essay for TAC on what fascism is not. In that broadside I spared neither right nor left for their misappropriations of the F-word. It may now be time to raise similar questions about the overuse of the […]
One of the best articles on the neocons I have seen to date. By Srdja Trifkovic Chronicles Eleven years ago I wrote a column for the print edition of Chronicles under this title. Tom Piatak’s grim reminder of the continued destructive presence of this cabal in what passes […]
Paul Gottfried is interviewed by Tom Woods. Listen here. For those who are unfamiliar with Paul Gottfried’s work, he is well worth checking out. Probably the best right-wing critic of the Left out there. You don’t have to be a right-winger to get something out of his work. […]
By Diana Johnstone Unz.Com CounterPunch has astonished many of its old fans by its current fundraising ad portraying the site as a prime target of Russia hostility. Under the slogan, “We have all the right enemies”, CP portrays itself as a brave little crew being blown off the […]
By Vince Rinehart What legitimizes a ruler or ruling class hasn’t changed a whole lot over time. In antiquity the emperor was supposed to be God on earth. And he was supported by true believers and those that he could bribe into following him in a mutually beneficial […]

This is a recent television interview I did on the condition of American education. Watch here.

By Neeva Parvini Quillette In analysing the political upheavals across Europe and America in the past several years, it has become customary to talk about ‘the elites’ and about ‘inequality’. This article will explore both concepts in political and socio-economic analysis, and posits that certain elites in the […]
A reader on Facebook offers the following comments, and asks the following questions. I’m not so sure how realistic sustained statelessness is without severe technological regression and economic collapse, but the obvious answer is that the vast majority of people would rather bask in the lazy comforts of […]
Is “the Left” eating itself? Watch the Unsafe Space Tour panel discussion at New York Law School, featuring Professors Bret Weinstein, Laura Kipnis, Angus Johnston, and author Brendan O’Neill. Moderated by Tom Slater (of Spiked Magazine).
It has been interesting to see how many predictions I made years ago have come into being. I predicted that the Eastern powers and “rogue states” would eventually rise to form an axis of resistance to the hegemony of the American empire. I predicted that populist-nationalist movements would […]
By Anand Venigalla Medium.Com The Revolution of 1789, while flawed and imperfect, was ultimately great. The French Revolution, if anything, was the most momentous event of the 18th century, even grander than the American Revolution. Its design, the causes, the results, and the ideology are so hard to […]
There is quite a bit I disagree with in this article, but it is good to see someone from the Left arguing that anti-imperialism should be a priority issue. By Noah Berlatsky Pacific Standard Tucker Carlson interviews Glenn Greenwald about U.S. strikes in Syria on April 10th, 2018. […]

It would be interesting if the rise of black conservatism eventually has the effect of saving the Republican Party from oblivion.
By Samuel Miller-McDonald One of the central tenets of late-20th century consumer capitalism is the sanctity of the individual. Margaret Thatcher declared that “There’s no such thing as society, there are individual men and women.” Ayn Rand’s philosophy glamorized anti-social übermenschen who stand against everyone else. Friedrich von […]
A leftist university professor describes his battles with the totalitarian humanists. In this speech at the Students For Liberty conference in Vancouver, B.C. Bret Weinstein discusses the inner workings of the regressive left.
By David Stockman The Donald’s action to ash-can the Iranian nuclear deal marks the War Party’s complete and baleful triumph. There is now absolutely nothing left of America First. Trump’s reckless, unwarranted and utterly irrational action will pull Washington ever deeper into an incendiary middle eastern vortex of political and religious […]
By Caitlin Johnstone Arizona Senator and murderous psychopath John McCain is rumored to be at death’s door, and already the world is being admonished by high-profile empire loyalists not to voice any criticism of his blood-saturated, obnoxiously long career. “Anti-McCain twitter seems to have reached new heights (or […]
By Andrew Doyle Spiked Online f you want to know why the left keeps losing, look no further than the fallout from last Sunday’s ‘Day for Freedom’ march in London. The event was publicised as a protest against the ongoing erosion of free speech in the UK, most […]
For modern conservatives, a question looms large: Has cultural Marxism or post-modernism done more damage to society? Canada’s Jordan Peterson claims the latter, while Paul Gottfried — one of America’s most most serious paleo-conservative intellectuals, says the opposite. On this week’s episode of ‘The San Francisco Review of […]

This statement originally appeared on Facebook. I am re-posting it here along with my original comments in response. Here is my response:
During the Cold War, some anarchists developed a tendency known as “Neither East nor West” for the purpose of opposing both superpowers and their satellites. As the Eastern axis continues to rise in opposition to the Western axis, such tendencies will be necessary once again. Amnesty International UK […]
A global anti-state front would necessarily have to oppose the Atlanticist-Zionist-Wahhabi empire (the dominant faction of the international class) while simultaneously opposing all states everywhere. Obviously, this would have to be a very careful balancing act. By Josepha Ivanka Wessels Open Democracy Why is it that the brightest […]
Tom Woods interviews Michael Malice, one of the West’s most insightful commentators on North Korea. Listen here. I’d like for the upcoming Trump-Kim summit to be a “Nixon Goes to China” moment, and for Kim Jong-Un to become the DPRK’s Deng Xiaoping. But I’m not holding my breath. […]
Tom Woods interviews leading antiwar commentator Scott Horton. Listen here. This is what our so-called “antifascists” should be attacking, rather than forming a neoconservative-liberal international-human rights imperialist-antifascist axis in service of the Anglo-American-Zionist-Wahhabi empire. ———————————— In something of a potpourri episode, Scott Horton and I discuss the real […]
Tom Wood and Gerard Casey discussion the philosopher on whose ideas most modern political theory is based.

Listen here. The […]
Tom Woods hosts a debate on “Russiagate.” Listen here. My take on Russiagate is that I couldn’t possibly care less if Russia “interferes” in domestic US politics or not. Israel and Saudi Arabia interfere in US politics to an infinitely greater degree than Russia, and it’s not even […]
