Only 10%? At the end of the Cold War, no less than Robert McNamara wanted to reduce the military budget by 50%. “Progressives” are so lame. Kudos to Kyle for calling them out.
Some hilarious footage of Biden in this, and a great discussion of what a charlatan Obama is.
This is the best analysis of how the Supreme Court actually works that you will ever see in “big media.” The SCOTUS exists to ratify and uphold the class interests of the power elite and the state while deciding social issues on the basis of the prevailing consensus […]
“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog..That this great king may kindly say, coronavirus go away.” Nelson Oliveira New York […]
Ironically, Virginia has a Democratic government that recently passed a bunch of “woke” legislation but is ranked 51st in the country, below the other 49 states and Washington, D.C, on the issue of workers’ rights. Thanks to the northern Virginia suburbs, Virginia is becoming the California of the […]
The crowdfunded purchase of places like this could make for interesting intentional communities and startup societies. By Abi Harman Love Money Surrounded by stunning rural landscapes, these impressive ranches for sale around the world offer an idyllic slice of the good life. From acres of remote rolling land […]
It couldn’t have happened to nicer people. The most ironic thing is that the Facebook boycott is just a virtue-signaling scam by corporations, some of whom use child slave labor in the global South. This would be like the National Socialists denouncing the Catholic Church for its legacy […]
Asian Americans Are Still Caught in the Trap of the ‘Model Minority’ Stereotype. And It Creates Inequality for All
As an Asian friend of mine once said, “Hey, we can be fuckups, too!” By Viet Thanh Nguyen The face of Tou Thao haunts me. The Hmong-American police officer stood with his back turned to Derek Chauvin, his partner, as Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for 8 […]
If it were up to me, the controversies over statues, monuments, street names, and building names would be decided like this: Every such icon that was located on government property would be considered the collective property of those who currently live in a local community, and who currently […]
I always knew the collapse of the system would bring about some interesting political realignments. I always did see something of a special spark in Richard, lol.
There is some hilarious footage in this.
Will this image be in future history books describing the opening phases of Civil War Two?
To those who think Trump is a fascist, I would point out that in an actual fascist dictatorship the head of state is not subject to censorship. Statist authoritarianism in 2020 Western liberal states is not the 20th century model of totalitarianism. If you want to understand the […]
Newt Gingrich is one of the most loathsome people in modern American political history, but he may be right that the 2020 election increasingly resembles the 1860 election in the sense of the existential questions that are involved. Newt may also be right that the victory of the […]
Krystal and Saager point out something that is really important in this, i.e. that the two parties’ leadership is more concerned about deflecting “radicals” in their own party than actually winning elections, which is consistent with my view that we really have three parties: The Neoliberal Centrist Party […]
What I find most interesting about the upcoming election is the way that the two sides now view each other as existential enemies. Whichever side wins, I’m positive the other side will challenge the legitimacy of the results. For any kind of parliamentary state to function, the losing […]
Peter Zeihan has argued that China may eventually fracture due to its internal instability and fragmentation. If that were to happen, I would consider it to be a major victory for “pan-secessionism” as a revolutionary tactic, as was the overthrow of the USSR and its Eastern European satellites. […]
I agree with much of the content of this video, but I don’t think this kind of rhetoric is helpful. One thing one of the speakers in this mentions is a “generational divide.” That is correct on many levels, and one level is that those who consider Trump […]
The most regrettable though predictable aspect of the recent uprising is that there has, for obvious reasons, been zero focus on the victims of state repression by the US and its allies in other countries. Most Americans, particularly the lumpenproletariat vanguard class, don’t know or don’t care about […]
Todd Lewis is joined by Keith Preston, Right Rumination and Swithun Dobson to discuss the current issue of the Blue Tribe.
By Don Fitz Scenes of sorrow spread across the US. Football teams apologize. Cops march with demonstrators. Democratic Party politicians call for “structural change” in police departments. Some of these are sincere. Others are crocodile tears shed in hopes that people will be pacified with assurances that turn […]
Barr specifically mentioned both Antifa and Boogaloo. “What is an anti-government extremist? Antifa? Boogaloo? Black Lives Matter? Me? You? Any anarchist or libertarian or communist who has a blog, holds their head high, and doesn’t vote for a lesser evil? This term is left specifically vague because it’s […]
Justice Dept. announces first felony charges in attempted toppling of Andrew Jackson statue near White House
Four troops down and more resources turned over to the state in the form of fines, bails, and lawyer fees. And for what? Were any resources liberated from the ruling class? Were any state functions rendered inoperative even for a single day? Think tactically, folks. By Evan Semones […]
By TR Yeah this virus isn’t going anywhere and its because we are a bunch of selfish deluded assholes. It is so shitty that those of you who are scientifically illiterate have decided to turn this into a political issue. THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A FUCKING […]
By Tamara Thiessen Forbes After four months of travel bans, Europe will soon officially be open to visitors from at least 14 countries. Not the U.S. Nor Brazil and Russia. But Australia, Canada, Japan and South Korea yes. After much debate, particularly over criteria for inclusion, the final […]
Only on ATS will you find a book by Hans-Hermann Hoppe being promoted alongside an interview with an old guard Stalinist. Available online. Introduction by Sean Gabb (first posted here) READ MORE
It’s interesting how conservative this guy sounds about a lot of things. Special interview by soL with Gyula Thürmer, leader of the Hungarian Workers’ Party (Munkaspart). ICP, 5 September 2018 A delegation from the Hungarian Workers’ Party (Munkaspart), leaded by President Gyula Thürmer, paid a visit to Turkey […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley I have always been fascinated by secessionist movements. It goes back to my childhood love of maps, flags and geography. I use to spend hours poring over atlases and fixating on the strange autonomous zones that only existed […]
By Crimethinc Fundamental social change involves two intertwined processes. On the one hand, it means shutting down the mechanisms that impose disparities in power and access to resources; on the other hand, it involves creating infrastructures that distribute resources and power according to a different logic, weaving a […]
As Krystal Ball recently said, “Capitalists are going to capitalist.” And what are these virtue-signaling realtors going to do to make housing more available or affordable to the poor communities of Houston, some of whom are actually black? Are they going to lower rents, reduce real estate sale […]
You don’t say? Imagine that. Analysis by Josh Campbell, CNN Security Correspondent The dramatic images rocked the nation — hundreds of thousands of people from all races taking to the streets across the United States, demanding an end to excessive police force against people of color. What began […]
The problem with these is that they can be traced through real estate and financial transaction records. It’s best to just squat them or build new ones. By Abby Driver Love Money Whether you’re a doomsday prepper getting ready for the end of the world or a die-hard […]
An interesting debate between a black leftist and a black conservative. I would generally agree with Michelle Alexander’s thesis that the police/carceral state and prison-industrial complex is merely the modern version of American black slavery or Jim Crow. But where I would disagree is that I think her […]
A somewhat interesting interview with a leading black conservative. I would be inclined to argue that, at present, substantial sectors of the capitalist class (including some major capitalist entities) along with their allies in the new clerisy/new class that dominates the “ideas industries” are fueling anti-racism hysteria in […]
I would argue that believers in the lizard people, UFOs, and Roswell are closer to the “truth” than many of the dumbasses who get passed off as “intellectuals,” left and right. The lizard people conspiracy theory is merely a low-brow, crass, lumpenproletarian caricature of something that is rooted […]
The Jacobin commie statists vs the corporate Gilded Age-loving libertarians. Hilarious. Actually, both have their roots in the radical Enlightenment. The discussion of slavery in this is ironic since it was the Jacobin revolution that led to the Reign of Terror and eventually brought to power Napoleon, who […]
I tend to agree with Kim Iversen that Biden is likely to be worse than Trump on foreign policy, with the exception being Trump’s total fealty to Israel and Saudi Arabia, particularly given that the Bush Republicans and neocons have successfully colonized the Democrats, with scumbags like Bolton […]
Coca-Cola uses child slaves on its sugar cane plantations in El Salvador and the Philippines. Big Tech vs. conventional capitalist class scumbags. Hilarious. WASHINGTON — Coca-Cola said Friday that it will be joining other companies who are taking part in the “Stop Hate For Profit” campaign to withdraw […]
One very important aspect of the recent uprising that I have yet to see anyone point out is that, contra FAUX News, the lumpenproletarian class base of the insurrection are not “leftist revolutionaries” in any conventional sense. While this podcast by Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying is correct […]
By Natasha “Could we live without the police?” It isn’t as out there as many seem to think. As Taoism, Confucianism, and other older beliefs rightfully point out, if a society is good, or rather natural/organic, then customs or dharma is respected therefore a ‘police’ is entirely unneeded. […]
They don’t. The Trumpism that is on FAUX News is merely raw meat being thrown to the Republican “base” (i.e. useful idiots for the right-wing of the ruling class). FOX is the voice of the neocons. To a person, they hate Trump in what is a major heel […]
Before I would believe this, I would have to see it confirmed by independent sources other than “US intelligence.” This seems more like disinformation cooked up to undermine Trump’s reelection. It is clear that the Deep State, neocons, neoliberals, the bulk of the military-industrial complex, majority of the […]
This is fucking unbelievable. Hershey literally uses black children in West Africa as slaves on its chocolate plantations. Not modern wage slaves. The pre-modern type of slaves. I’m beginning to understand why Maoist-types tend to massacre the entire capitalist class. This is Twilight Zone level stuff here. By […]
The lumpenproletariat was too scary even for bourgeois radicals like Marx (the son of a Prussian state solicitor, i.e. a district attorney) and Engels (the son of a wealthy industrialist). In 2020, the lumenproletariat of all creeds, colors, genders, and geographies, made its move, however meagerly, against the […]
But isn’t “chicks” considered by many feminists to be a derogatory term for women? I remember when these ladies were being lambasted by the right-wing for being unpatriotic for criticizing the Iraq War. In its more benign forms, this stuff is simply the Legion of Decency, Moral Majority, […]
By German Lopez Vox The past week gave America an ugly reminder that the threat of the coronavirus pandemic is far from over. Cases are rapidly rising again. The nation on Wednesday hit a new record for daily new infections, and then hit another record the next day. […]
