Nowhere. I always said Lizzie the Scamster was a fraud and I was right.
Alexandria needs to start pushing for two things: debt jubilee (no rent, mortgages, etc.) and reparations to the working class (UBI, unemployment compensation, etc)
Duh? Krystal and Saagar discuss how Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, and billionaire investor Bill Ackman are profiting off of the coronavirus.
“Government largesse and politicians enriching themselves.” As if anything else could reasonably be expected.
Schumer and McConnell unite to fuck over everyone else.
2008 on steroids.
The global banking cartels have been the international ruling class since the early modern era when landed wealth began to give way to monetary and merchant wealth as the basis of class rule. The old bourgeoisie of the Enlightenment/classical liberal/Industrial Revolution periods were simply the national-elites of capitalist […]
Given that “progressives” are once again a rising force in US politics, it’s a good idea to revisit the work of Antony Sutton and his critique of FDR. Bernie Sanders is really just a recycled Rooseveltian, and I’ve even heard a lot of commentators I like (Jimmie Dore, […]
Anyone who is familiar with my writings knows that I am a vengeful hater of the neocons. However, one thing the neocon godfather Irving Kristol (father of Bill Kristol, of “benevolent global hegemony” scumbaggery fame) may have gotten right is his analysis of what the called the “new […]
By Brian Gassey The Guardian Australian photographer Brian Cassey visits Hasdeo Arand, one of the largest contiguous stretches of dense forest in central India.

By Ahjamu Umi Its important to contextualize what’s happening throughout the world today with the challenges facing us from the potential growth of COVID 19. If what we are learning is true, this virus has devastating capacity. Even if you are healthy and strong, you can hold the […]
Noam Chomsky has it right when he says that “capitalism” amounts to “socialism for the rich” with austerity, “market discipline,” and bootstraps for everyone else. By Craig Murray Amid the COVID-19 panic, it has hardly been noticed that Carphone Warehouse went bust, with 2,900 people losing their jobs. […]
It’s time for a global insurgency against states and ruling classes everywhere. By William I. Robinson Truthout What does a virus have to do with war and repression? The coronavirus has disrupted global supply networks and spread panic throughout the world’s stock markets. The pandemic will pass, not […]
It’s time for anarchists to stop wasting time arguing over the capitalism/socialism false dichotomy. “Neither statism nor corporatism” should be our economic battle cry. The real divide is between order-givers and order-takers, and between the power elite and those who are subordinated to the power elite. By David […]
Not just Republicans, Bernie. The entire ruling class/political class/power elite.
It’s 2008 on steroids.
Sometimes leadership can come from strange places. By Chelsey Sanchez Harpers’ Bazaar A pandemic, it seems, has a funny way of exposing the world’s true colors. College students are stripped down to their selfish cores as they prioritize frolicking across Miami beaches over the health of literally everybody […]
From what I have seen so far, the responses of the states and localities to the current crisis have been reasonably competent, from conservatives like Mike DeWine to liberals like Kate Snyder. Not what I would like, of course, but it is what it is given the political […]
It’s time to start squatting and homesteading corporations that profit from the stimulus/bailout/robbery of the working class.
Some of the social democrats in Congress have performed reasonably well on this thing, along with a few people from the “far-right,” but for the most part, the entire political class has once again shown why it sucks.
The proper solution to the exacerbation of class conflict that has been generated by the present public health crisis, and the opportunistic actions by the state and ruling class that have resulted, in a nationwide debt strike. In the 1960s, draft resisters adopted the slogan, “Hell no, we […]
For many years, I have said that the US is a Third World banana republic with First World technology. Sometimes it sucks to be right.
Great Depression Two, here we come.
Hey, Congress. Go fuck yourselves. Saagar Enjeti blasts the bipartisan failure to provide appropriate unemployment compensation for working people in the Senate’s massive stimulus package.
Duh? Los Angeles banquet server Alice Stanford is one of the thousands of people whose income is in jeopardy, as service and hospitality industries are hit hardest amid coronavirus shutdowns.
What does anyone expect? Huffpost reporter Zach Carter claims the legislation in the stimulus bill is outrageous, offering too much corporate bailout and failing to offer provisions on healthcare, unemployment.
Ruling class scumbags are at again. Krystal Ball explains why the stimulus bill should forget about corporate bailouts and push for provisions to support small businesses, industry employees, and working families.
I have a chapter in this book where I argued that the postwar conservative movement was nothing other than a front for the military-industrial complex and right-wing of the US ruling class (the Sunbelt industries that were in conflict with the “northeastern establishment”). The other authors were all […]
The worst public health crisis in a century, the worst economic crisis in 90 years, Donald Trump is president, and this guy is the leader of the opposition party. It’s time for revolution.
Natural selection wins again. By Theresa Waldrop and Stephanie Gallman CNN At least one person in Kentucky is infected after taking part at a “coronavirus party” with a group of young adults, Gov. Andy Beshear said Tuesday. The partygoers intentionally got together “thinking they were invincible” and purposely […]
“It will be interesting to see whether the current pandemic is going to use as a controlled financial explosion, in the sense that an old factory building considered to have outstayed its welcome is carefully detonated in order for the site to be used for the construction of […]
Call it capitalism, call it socialism, call it statism, call it fascism, call it whatever you want. The bottom line is that the system sucks. By Kandist Mallette Teen Vogue I took a free dance class from Debbie Allen the other day. I also FaceTimed with some childhood […]
One positive side effect of the COVID-19 crisis is that it’s really exposing what a bunch of useless idiots the political class is, how wide class divisions actually are, and what a backward feudal-like society the US has become. Reuters MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President Andres Manuel […]
Coronavirus economic relief proposals are overlooking the 57 million Americans who are self-employed
No room for the petite bourgeoisie. By Josh Silverman Fortune COVID-19 has upended life for many of us, creating uncertainty for our families, our businesses, and the broader economy. In the U.S., politicians on both sides of the aisle are racing to align on relief packages that would provide […]
What Steps Thy Feudal Lords Are Taking to Keep Thee Safe Whilst This Plague of Buboes Ravages the Fiefdoms
Feudalism, then and now. By Keith Rubin McSweeney’s To our loyal vassals, We remain grateful to thee for thy continued fealty amidst these uneasy and ever-changing times. Whilst there has been only a SINGLE reported case of Bubonic Plague within our fiefdom (that of Simon the Tinker), we […]
Big Pharma digs its own grave.
Is our time getting closer?
The New Great Depression is on the way.

“Most people assume that what we are presently witnessing in the towns and cities of Europe is a moment of great weakness for the globalist establishment, but this is clearly not the case and the enemies of free-thought and territorial sovereignty are carefully manouvering themselves into an even […]
