The main danger from the right is a revanchism led by a figure who is actually competent and capable of uniting the neocons/Reaganites/supply-siders and the populists/Trumpists/nationalists. An intra-Republican civil war between various egomaniacs and their followers would be the best possible outcome.

While the three […]
By Andrew Korybko, One World Prelude Since 2015, Western society and culture have been going downhill more and more. While it was difficult enough in 2008 after the banking crisis, the refugee crisis in 2015 gave the death blow to Western democracies and culture. The C-virus was the […]

I generally don’t take positions on conflicts within or between other countries. The exception is when the United States is facilitating genocides, civil wars, coups, state repression, and de facto or de jour slavery in other places (which, unfortunately, involves a lot of other places). It’s kind of […]

A concise but excellent and entirely correct description of how the left-wing of the capitalist class approaches racial issues. The Left will often point how out the right-wing will use racism, social conservatism, invidiousness toward out-groups, etc. to distract the generally socially conservative, white working to middle classes […]

The real reason that the Red Tribers hate Ilhan Omar is not that she is from Somalia or a woman or a Muslim. Her status as a Somali Muslim doesn’t win her any points with many Republicans to be sure, but that’s not the real reason that they […]
The most interesting information in this is that the military was split in half in terms of support or opposition to the Trump regime. And it’s obvious that the Biden regime is trying to purge the military of conservatives. What if the mass civil unrest currently being experienced […]
The Squad are the Future Political Millionaires who protect Billionaires.
