Trump is only able to deploy DHS forces to cities because the military-intelligence services (“deep state”) are allowing him to do so. The question is what is their angle? Are they delibertately allowing Trump to trip up and fall? By David Lapan Just Security I believe deeply that […]
Fossil fuel companies, one of the most significant sectors of the old bourgeoisie/right-wing of the ruling class, are among the funders/backers of the Republican Party, as opposed to the rising tech-oligarchs who back the Democratic Party, with Wall Street and banksters having their hands in both. By Nina […]
“Trump wanted a war on social unrest and the social unresters brought him more than he and his pigs could fucking handle. Forget our rigged election circus. This is how real democracy happens. Poor people coming together in the streets to smash the chains of tyranny. Now this […]
“As an anti-imperialist anarchist, my take on American soldiers has always been that any standing army is essentially an organized crime cartel, but that most criminals are essentially revolutionaries with a lack of direction. This is the reason that so many of our countries most fearless and effective […]
Prediction: There will eventually be a split on the right between the more effete conservatives and the more lowbrow types. The effete types will also split between those who sound more like CNN and essentially become Democrats, whether de jour or de facto, and those who remain in […]
The neocons are plotting their comeback in the Republican Party even while they are also colonizing the Democratic Party.
It couldn’t happen to nicer people. The aristocrats are on their way out. Time to attack the bourgeoisie. Will the Repugs try to rig a foreign policy crisis before the election to distract from domestic issues? Look for the Repugs to start escalating their rhetoric against China and […]
Kudos to Krystal for mentioning Fred Hampton is this segment. Krystal Ball gives her thoughts on coverage of the protests nationwide and why she believes Donald Trump manufactured a crisis by sending Federal agents to big cities.
The only viable alternative to fossil fuels is either nuclear power or simply regressing to a pre-industrial level of technological development. Environmental Activist, Michael Shellenberger, discusses his book, ‘Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All,’ and explains why he believes the people who are the most alarmist […]
Freelance writer, Rav Arora, shares his thoughts on white privilege and explains what he says are the, “glaring fallacies of white-privilege narrative.”

She was shot in the head by Trump’s stormtroopers in Portland, Oregon, this past weekend. She was a member of the “Wall of Moms.” By Kristen Jessie-Uyanik I want to preface this difficult post by saying that Black Lives Matter and that should remain at the center of […]
James Lindsay outlines the intellectual trajectory of totalitarian humanism, political correctness, wokeness, cultural Marxism, whatever one wants to call it, pretty thoroughly in this, although I would add more emphasis on 19th century Progressive Christianity and Maoism during the Cultural Revolution period than what he mentions. He focuses […]
A political scientist describes the methods the Democrats will eventually use to create a one-party state (which he favors as a “progressive”). The Dutton strategy that was devised in 1970 (co-optation of the cultural left by corporate liberals) is nearly complete half a century later. As soon as […]
A reader points out a glaring weakness that is found in the full range of anti-state movements. Keith, I’ve been thinking over for a while now how it is that people who are ostensibly anti-state in theory can end up defending the state in practice, all the while […]
A sign that a state is losing its legitimacy is when judicial orders are openly defied, or when there are violent attacks on the judiciary. There was an assassination attempt on a federal judge in New Jersey last week, and now the alternative media is simply saying to […]

As I have been saying for years, the US police state (the largest of any country that is a formal democracy) has grown to the point where it no longer limits its attacks to those on the bottom layers or the margins of the social stratification system. It […]

People are individuals, not colors. “…among self-identified Democrats, blacks and Latinos are less likely to describe themselves as liberal than whites.

The battle lines have obviously been drawn between the partisans, but what I am most curious about is what the actual turnout for the election is going to be. This 13% seems to come mostly from the “politically disengaged” category identified by the “Hidden Tribes” study from 2018. […]

To ask the question is to answer. Somehow, the USA managed to exist for 200 years without the DHS. By Jonathan Blitzer New Yorker
A fairly interesting fourth-generation warfare approach. In Portland, the Hockey Stick Brigade is now in force, smacking tear gas canisters back in the direction they came from: the illegal occupying army.
Municipal police typically function as the private army of politically-connected business and real estate interests. This is a fairly significant fourth-generation warfare victory, relatively speaking.

I came across this recent statement from a leftist activist. The comments below were made as part of a wider argument that opposition to PC is nothing more special pleading by reactionaries who merely want to be exempt from criticism, which is the standard leftist reply to criticisms […]
I found these comments on a Twitter thread. I reposted it here because it is a good example of the kinds of arguments used by defenders of PC, wokeness, cancel culture, etc. I could offer an extensive critique of this but it’s probably sufficient to say that this […]
Some interesting observations by David Brooks, a neocon mouthpiece who occasionally has something interesting to say (his “bourgeois bohemians” thesis, for example). “Sixty-two percent of Americans say they are afraid to share things they believe, according to a poll for the Cato Institute. A majority of staunch progressives […]
This is an interesting study. It appears that self-censorship is rooted more in fear of offending others in one’s immediate circle than in actual fear of institutional censorship (whether public or private). The apparent cause is the level of general political polarization that exists in the wider society. […]
