Answering questions from a progressive about why I walked away from the left and will vote for Trump
An unfortunate tendency of many people who become discouraged with the left is to follow the neocon trajectory and become Republicans rather than doing what I did, which was to become even more radical.
I’d say read it, but read it in the same way a reasonable person might read Mein Kampf or Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.
When the therapeutic state, medical martial law, and oligarchic capitalism converge. By Chip Cutter and Thomas Gryta Wall Street Journal Companies have a new question for employees: Any plans this weekend?

Remember that China is a test market in state repression. By Darren Byler Foreign Policy In Xinjiang, unwanted Chinese guests monitor Uighur homes 24/7.

By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Law and order. Just the sound of those three words sets my teeth on edge. Together they form a verbal menage a trois that quite possibly amounts to the three ugliest words in the English lexicon. It brings […]
Trump’s Iran policy has been the worst aspect of his administration, along with his support for ongoing Israeli expansionism and the Saudi war in Yemen. If the neocons are successful in colonizing the Democrats and embedding themselves in a Biden administration, look for them to continue this same […]
The Lincoln Project is merely a means through which the neocons and their closest allies, warmed-over Bush Republicans, are colonizing the Democratic Party, the same way a commie cult might try to colonize an antiwar or environmental group. A Biden administration will be a ruling class unity regime […]
He’ll accept the results if the Deep State tells him to (which they will). By Jason Lemon Newsweek President Donald Trump declined to say whether or not he will accept the results of the presidential election in November during an interview broadcast by Fox News Sunday. “I have […]
Is it actually going to happen? By Rachel McRady Entertainment Online Kanye West seems to be taking his first steps in running for office. On Sunday, he held his first rally in South Carolina. Wearing a vest with “Security” written on the front, and sporting “2020” across the back […]
One thing about Trump that I have never seen any commentator point out is that while Trump is a billionaire, he does not originate from the traditional Anglo-Saxon American elite. Trump originates from a German immigrant family, and Germans and the Irish were the original “immigrant undesirables” in […]
Wokeness, “cancel culture,” political correctness, etc. is merely the loyalty oaths, satanic panic, or the “just say no” of the present era. Has any of this do-gooder stuff helped even one person pay rent, resulted in the release of a single prisoner, or prevented even one bomb from […]

The aristocracy realizes there is money to be made in pretending to be friends of the peasants and mouthing the platitudes of the clerisy, all the while building the new feudalism.

Just like murder was legal for someone who held the rank of sultan in the Ottoman Empire.
At bare minimum, we should all be in favor of secession by these three.
This commentator is being facetious when he says that the Trump administration is actually trying to fuel the protest movement in Portland, but I am not convinced that is not actually the case. The Trump campaign wants there to be civil unrest so they can appeal to their […]
“A Latino friend of mine pointed out today that what we are seeing in Portland is a light version of CIA operations in El Salvador, Columbia, Chile and other Latin American countries in the 70s and 80s. The US propped up dictators and organized coups. The US helped […]
“Banks, Media, Universities, Military, Prisons, Big Pharma, Frankenfood Agribusiness, etc. There’s a whole bunch of power-elites that consolidate into an ever-evolving ruling class.” Adil Sarker
I disagree that the existence of the Electoral College or the bicameral Congress is the main thing that is wrong with the current system. It is not unreasonable to have institutional mechanisms to prevent mob rule. The main problem is that, if you read the enumerated powers and […]

By Wesley The Point News Prior to 2020 cancel culture was arguably apolitical, but as we near the impending re-election of Donald Trump, cancel culture has become weaponised by his largely left-wing enemies on social media platforms but when it became apparent that Trump was on uncancellable cancel […]
By George Greig The Point News Since the creation of the first devolved assembly in 1999, there has been an undeniable growth in regional nationalism and separatism. This is due to the view that the current union gives England too much power over the other home nations. While […]

By F.H. Buckley Spectator The United States is ripe for secession. Across the world, established states have divided in two or are staring down secession movements. Great Britain became a wee bit less great with Irish independence, and now the Scots seem to be rethinking the Act of […]
If the USA were to balkanize, what independent countries do you think would emerge, what would they look like, and which would be most successful?
Reddit There are large economic, political, and cultural divides in the US (at least more so than other countries). Some states actually have economies that are competitive at a global scale (i.e. California, Texas).
By John Kaluza In response to Mr. Staveley’s commentary, I am closing in on 70 years old and I can honestly say, like you do, that the thinking of many people in this country is incomprehensible to me. I just don’t understand how so many Americans can support […]
