Abu Nizar’s father had good things to say about the Israelis he knew. “He told me they were decent to him when he worked there. He did whatever work he could find with them. Construction, the fields. He had a good opinion of them. They treated him well,” the son said. More…

The United Nations has declared Colorado and Washington in violation of international treaties following ballot initiatives that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana.
The President of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), Raymond Yans, has voiced “grave concern about the outcome of recent referenda in the United States of America that would allow the non-medical use of cannabis by adults in the states of Colorado and Washington, and in some cities in the states of Michigan and Vermont,” according to an INCB press release. The INCB is a quasi-judicial “control organ” for the implementation of the United Nations drug conventions.
As Jack Donovan said:
National armies are mobilized to protect global business interests from disruption. They aren’t protecting you from invasion….. American troops are keeping the supply lines running, so that you can keep buying shit.
So this holiday season, make sure that our boys in the military didn’t risk their mental health, limbs and lives in vain. Make sure you get out there and participate in America’s decaying consumer culture. Go buy some shit.

This interview is included in the recently released National-Anarchism: Ideas and Concepts, edited by Troy Southgate and available from Black Front Press.
1) Please could you introduce yourself, your background, and how you define national anarchism?
I am a native New Yorker, agrarian separatist homesteader, and spokesman for the National Anarchist Tribal Alliance NY. I was raised around the patriot/militia movement and since my early teenage years I have been involved with a wide array of radical political groups and causes from anarchist groups to populist American nationalist and anti-Zionist circles. More recently but previous to the founding of NATA in 2010, I mainly focused my attention on attempting to build bridges between the radical and anti statist “left” and “right” (with limited success). I have worked with the 2008 Ron Paul campaign, WeAreChangeNYC, Young Americans for Liberty, End the Fed, the John Birch Society (JBS), and been involved with the Constitution and Libertarian parties.

Delusions of the Liberal Intelligentsia
By Jason Hirthler
As we head into The Chosen One’s second term, it might be useful to explode a few of the chronic myths that cling to the man more tightly than his shadow. Myths that have helped liberal intelligentsia justify its enthusiastic support for this lesser of two evils. Here are the myths as articulated by a young, imaginary, and starry-eyed Obama progressive, momentarily detached from the stampeding liberal herd, just long enough to have a conversation with a leftist on the political fringe…

Throughout the campaign season, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama alike insisted that the 21st century must be another American century—that the U.S. should continue to be the world’s predominant military, economic, and political power for generations to come. After ten years of shattered hegemonic dreams, leaders of both parties still feel compelled to declare their loyalty to the vision that inspired the follies of the Bush era. Foreign-policy debate continues to turn on the question of how to preserve American hegemony, rather than how to secure U.S. interests once America is no longer so dominant. What nobody in Washington can acknowledge is the subject that this book addresses: the American Century, to the extent that it ever was real, is now definitely at an end.

Awake to Drones
“We are still finding body pieces.”
My job was to gather the body pieces after an IED explosion, trying to keep pieces on one body together.”
“My uncles were cut in pieces.”
I heard the first statement when I volunteered at the rest station set up for first responders in St. Peter’s church near Ground Zero. The second statement I heard during an NPR interview with a Marine.
I heard the third statement as I sat on the floor in the office of the Foundation for Fundamental Rights (FFR) in Islamabad, an organization that provides legal aid for victims of U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan. Shahzad Akbar, founder of FFP, had invited — or more accurately, challenged — Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the anti-war activist group CODEPINK, to bring a delegation to Pakistan to meet with victims and survivors of drone attacks.

The prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced Thursday that his conservative Likud Party would run on a joint ticket with the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu Party in January elections. The surprise joining of forces immediately shook up Israel’s political map and was apparently intended to cement Mr. Netanyahu’s chances of leading the next government.
The move sharpened the contours of the left and right camps in Israeli politics after years during which the major-party leaders, including Mr. Netanyahu, had gravitated toward the political center. Political opponents from the center and left warned that the unification of Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu, led by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, reflected a creeping extremism that would not serve Israel.
Hezbollah is strongly present in the Zionist decision making process regarding any future war, where its growing military capabilities pose a hard number to Tel Aviv rulers when thinking of any military adventure in Lebanon and the region.

I’m calling the election. The winner will be George W. Bush.
Whether Obama serves a second term or hands the reins to Romney, we will face another four years of Bush’s policies.
Luke Rudkowski hits the streets of NYC to find out where Obama supporters really stand on his policies. Now he did this in an underhanded way where the policies where presented to be Romney’s, but this was only done to get an honest opinion. The reactions when the truth was uncovered varied but they were very telling to say the least.
The YouTube celebrity, ramzpaul, is a smart guy and probably means well in a bungling, Republican sort of way. He likely thinks that he is a conscientious racialist. He is also an observant and clever opportunist. But predominantly, he is a Murka-Firster.
Ramzpaul has piggy-backed onto the viral YouTube video released by the French group, Génération Indentitaire, with his own “A New Declaration of Independence.” He might possibly be horrified to know that the French are one of the most legislatively virulent European nations for keeping Murkan schlock culture out of their country. He might be further horrified to know that Bloc Identitaire, the organization behind Génération Identitaire, rejects the Murkan innovation of crass “White Nationalism.” The BI is allied with secessionist movements of a similar outlook in Portugal, Catalonia, Holland, Belgium (Vlaams Belang), and Italy (Lega Nord). The philosophical core of BI is Ethno Nationalism, not imperialistic, Murkan “White Nationalism.” More…
