Black Agenda Report By BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon The Department of Homeland Security is a secretive, lawless, largely privatized police and surveillance agency, with its own prisons and soon, its own drones. Now it’s headed by a black man, a progressive Democrat, a Morehouse man & […]
By Anthony Gregory Here’s a mystery. The Republicans describe themselves as the party of smaller government, and the Democrats generally agree. Polls indicate nearly unprecedented lows in public trust in the federal government. Yet the Republicans’ popularity seems to sink continuously. Some pundits believe the Democrats have a […]
Let’s not forget Central America, CIA-backing of the Khmer Rouge, and the War on Drugs.
W. James Antle III Lightspring / Shutterstock.com Initially, the American people’s verdict on the government shutdown appeared to be “a pox on both their houses.” Republicans received plurality blame, but Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and both major parties took something of a hit in the early polls.
Politics USA Things are so bad in Dreher’s mind that he writes that he can’t believe he’s saying this, “but I hope the House flips to the Democrats in 2014, so we can be rid of these nuts. Let Ted Cruz sit in the Senate stewing in his […]
Peter Beinhart Maybe Bill de Blasio got lucky. Maybe he only won because he cut a sweet ad featuring his biracial son. Or because his rivals were either spectacularly boring, spectacularly pathological, or running for Michael Bloomberg’s fourth term. But I don’t think so. The deeper you look, […]
That’s why we need an anarchist revolution.

By Pat Buchanan In the last decade of the 20th century, as the Soviet Empire disintegrated so, too, did that prison house of nations, the USSR. Out of the decomposing carcass came Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Moldova, all in Europe; Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan in […]

Excellent article by Greg Palast. I agree with every word. On September 18, hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas, a.k.a. Killah P, was stabbed outside a bar in Keratsini, Greece. Larry Summers has an air-tight alibi. But I don’t believe it. Larry didn’t hold the knife: The confessed killer is […]
Larry Gambone had the neocons figured out in this article from 2003. By Larry Gambone DEMOCRACY There is much braying about “democracy” in the neocon press. The reality is however, that this ideology is founded upon the idea of restricting democracy and not increasing it. Samuel Huntington’s statement […]
I have long suspected the neoconservatives would move leftward as the GOP’s electoral fortunes declined. As they are in the process of being eclipsed by the liberal internationalist/cultural Marxist alliance, they’re looking towards the Democrats and saying, “Hey, wait for us!” By Kelley Vlahos After years of what […]
Nice job, Rick! By Laura Clawson Rick Santorum is angry with sellouts in his party. Their crime? Using the term “middle class.” Speaking in Iowa (where else), Santorum ranted and spat: Don’t use the term the other side uses. Who does Barack Obama talk about all the time? […]
By Justin Raimondo The rise of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) as an alternative to Bush era GOP dead-enders has the two principal anti-libertarian factions in American politics snarling and spitting in fury – and real fear. The progressives – in the drivers’ seat at the moment – are […]
No, they can’t. But we can. It looks like some folks at The American Conservative have been reading AttacktheSystem.Com. By W. James Antle III One step forward, two steps back.

Washington Times Earlier this year, Jeb Bush told ABC that both his father George H.W. Bush, and brother George W. recommended he run for president in 2016. Mama Barbara Bush is not keen on the idea, declaring in April that “the nation’s probably had enough Bushes.” But in […]
Today we celebrate the last time that American insurgents successfully overthrew their government. Unfortunately, they installed a new one right after. Let’s get it right this time around!
By Timothy Stanley May 14, 2008 From the vantage point of the early 21st century the American left seems like a hopeless, hapless, very probably lost cause.
New York Times Rich Addicks for The New York TimesYoung Republicans. There has been no shortage of Republican post-mortems on the 2012 presidential election — and no shortage of apologists who claimed the party need only change its rhetoric (and stop nominating members of the legitimate-rape caucus) to […]
Rand Paul epitomizes why we need revolutionary anarchism, not “constitutional conservatism.” Reason.Com In preparation for a 2016 presidential run, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is courting evangelical leaders. And we all know what that means! It’s time to throw those hedonistic, libertine, drug-obsessed libertarians under the bus.

The American Thinker Long owning the default position, the pure, tolerant Democrats easily assume a morally superior attitude while labeling those who differ from their point of view as morally deficient, quickly dousing dissenters with the 2008-2012 election buzz word–racist. Uh, uh; I know better and so do […]

By Mary Theroux “Bread and circuses” anyone? The culmination of last night’s Oscars broadcast with a Live! feed from the White House with Mrs. Obama (hangin’ with her military BFs) marks the official recognition of the Presidency as theater: like the old Western sets, no substance required.
Richmond Times-Dispatch CHICAGO — The prospect of prison looms over former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife after they agreed to plead guilty to charges in an alleged scheme to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items — including furs, a gold watch, a football […]
