This is obviously a mixed bag because it is reminiscent of the “company towns” of the industrial revolution but, big picture-wise, I believe this helps fuel the pan-secessionist strategic paradigm in the same way that CHAZ/CHOP was a step in the right direction from the other side of […]
Chelsea, say it ain’t so… Bow-tied country club Republican tabloid TV jerk-off Tucker Carlson is hardly a “nazbol.” Carlson is within a longstanding “progressive Republican” tradition of mildly criticizing big capital that goes at least as far back as Teddy Roosevelt if not Lincoln (and usually doing favors […]
From a thread on a social media page. This nails it. The only qualification might be that I don’t know that “liberal” is really the right word for it, and terms like “cultural Marxist” are even more off base. I’d say “progressive” in the historic American sense is […]
Right now really does feel a lot like 1975-1976. The US is withdrawing from a long unpopular war. A series of racial and political riots have taken place. A president reviled by the cultural elite has left office and been replaced by an empty suit. A strong shift […]
The military-industrial complex has suffered a humiliating loss in Afghanistan. Look for them to try to gin up a new enemy to justify their existence. Right now, starting a new cold war with China seems to be the plan since Russiagate failed. By Benjamin Wallace-Wells Elbridge Colby is […]

I’ve mentioned before that we have three parties nowadays. The Democrats are divided between the neo-Ted Kennedy liberals (Berniebros) and neo-Rockefeller Republicans (the Bidenists). The Republicans are essentially a party of George Wallace Democrats now, at least the bottom 85% of the party. To the degree that these […]
China LIMITS Video Game Time To 3 HOURS Per Week, Weekends Only. Surveillance State On Full Display?
I’ve seen a lot of social conservatives and some leftists cheering this. Bad idea, folks. China’s surveillance state and social credit system is a test market for the kind of system the global power elite wants to impose everywhere. Ryan Grim, Kim Iversen, and Alyssa Farah respond to […]
By Jeremy Stahl, Vice On Wednesday, Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser announced a 32-count indictment against five men responsible for the death of Elijah McClain in 2019. The grand jury’s charge that McClain’s death was indeed the result of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide is a long overdue […]
The challenges of the United States’ Afghan withdrawal have caused many to question Washington’s commitments to its allies and others who have found themselves under the American security blanket.

By James Michael Yeoman At the outbreak of the First World War the Spanish anarchist movement was in disarray.

For the neocons it’s always 1939, and for the left, it’s always Salem of 1690. By Banned Hipster Steve Sailer writes about the KKKrazy Glue that holds the various racial groups of the left together, pretending to believe that the Nazi party and the Ku Klux Klan actually […]
Some interesting commentary from a hardline Red Tribe perspective. When all mainstream institutions are captured, is the right answer to break up from the techno-fascist state?

Sean Hannity and Oliver North are two of the most loathsome people in modern American history. The last time I voted in a US election was to vote against Oliver North when he ran for the US Senate in Virginia in 1994. But I don’t know that what […]
I’m leaning toward the view that an international agreement was made among the global power elite to cede Afghanistan to the Chinese orbit, with the expectation that China will engage in the economic development of Afghanistan (like they’re doing in Africa) but where the Western powers are still […]
“Beware the military-industrial congressional complex who’ll have every incentive to keep a profitable war going long after its long lost” – Eisenhower.
Here’s the problem with conservatives: if you tell them that they shouldn’t listen to Tucker Carlson because his own lawyers said his show is entertainment and not news, they’ll respond with something like “that’s smart! Now he can speak the truth without the radical socialists censoring him!” Their […]
If Biden had chosen to stay in Afghanistan, Trump might have resorted to saying that Biden doesn’t honor agreements and want forever wars instead!

By Pablo Rodero The present work studies those aspects of contemporary social movements that could produce long-term changes in society.

This Julius Krein article is interesting. It’s somewhat similar to Howard Zinn’s call for the “revolt of the guards.” I think we largely see what Krein is describing playing out in the Democratic Party now, where the social democrats and progressive liberals have created a de facto opposition […]
By JESSICA GRESKO Associated Press A deeply divided Supreme Court is allowing a Texas law that bans most abortions to remain in force, stripping most women of the right to an abortion in the nation’s second-largest state. The court voted 5-4 early Thursday to deny an emergency appeal […]
