There is a little too much “law talk” in this segment for my tastes. The ideal situation would be for the center-right, center-left, far-right, and far-left to fight, both in the electoral system/political institutions and in the streets, to the point that none of these can achieve anything […]
Tom Woods interviews Kristan Harris Listen here. Opinion has been sharply divided about Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in what many say was an act of self-defense. In this episode I’m joined by Kristan Harris, the man whose footage from that night […]
By Julian Borger The Guardian The former UK ambassador in Washington, Kim Darroch, has warned of a “genuine risk” of violence in the aftermath of a close-run US election in November. Darroch noted that although Joe Biden is maintaining a significant lead nationwide, the margins in some battleground […]
It is never a good thing when people in a society start killing each other with a greater degree of frequency. But incidents of this type are the natural consequence of 50 years of economic and social policies that have turned the USA into a Third World society […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley “The most interesting political questions throughout history have been whether or not humans will be ruled or free, whether they will be responsible for their actions as individuals or left irresponsible as members of society, and whether they can live in peace by volitional agreements alone.” -Karl Hess “We’ve got to […]
Fourth-generation warfare on the rise.

Vince lives in Portland and provides first hand accounts and context for the uprising Discussion includes: 100 nights of protests in Portland Scope of the protests and effect on the city Targets of […]
What I find most interesting about this piece is how it illustrates that the various factions of the “Left” and “Right,” broadly defined, not only have different philosophies and political preferences but different realities as well. Can people who have totally different ideas on what reality even is […]
In an ideal situation, right-wing vigilantes would provide protection to residential neighborhoods, mom and pop shops, and the general public, while left-wing vigilantes burned down police stations and the lumpenproletariat looted Wal-Mart. But I’ve noticed that many situations tend to be less than ideal.
Are we reliving Weimar…or Bleeding Kansas? By Matt Purple The American Conservative There’s a scene in Christopher Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin where the author goes to visit Bernhard Landauer, the owner of a prosperous department store in Germany. The year is 1933 and Bernhard shows Christopher a vicious […]
From what I can tell, there is literally no one in any of the factions of US politics that has the slightest interest in anti-authoritarian values of any kind, except for isolated individuals. Obviously, this is true of the ruling class parties, but it is apparent enough that […]

If only it were true. We need many CHAZs, and for the CHAZs to become Cherons, and for the Cherons to become MAREZs, and for the MAREZs to become Rojavas, and for the Rojavas to become Hezbollahs. By Matthew Choi Politico President Donald Trump ordered a review of […]
Too much cop-loving on the right, too much managerial state-loving on the left. By Christopher Mathias Huffington Post Before Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly opened fire on anti-racist protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night — killing two and severely injuring another — a video showed police essentially deputizing the […]
A guerrilla insurgency being waged by the urban lumpenproletariat engaged in fourth-generation warfare.
If this is true, I have to give the Antifa credit on this one.
So this election is basically a contest between two factions of corrupt opportunists accusing each other of fascism? Kind of like the Stalin/Trotsky rivalry?
“Looting” is just a “stimulus plan” organized from the bottom up at the grassroots level and implemented through direct action.
Fourth-generation warfare escalates.
The Weimarization of the US continues to escalate. Apparently, the person killed was some right-wing guy. Who did the killing? A leftist or BLM supporter? The cops? A rival right-winger? A random shooter? An anonymous vigilante? Oregon Live One man was shot and killed in downtown Portland as […]
By William S. Lind Traditional Right The way the Presidential election is shaping up, most of the big issues will not be openly stated. They include race, with the Republicans the White party and the Democrats the black and immigrant party; socialism, with the Democrats in favor and […]
By Meagan Day The Jacobin On August 19, President Donald Trump gave a nod of approval to believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which maintains that the president is secretly fighting to save the world from an elite satanic pedophile network, calling them “people that love our country.” […]

Don’t try this at home, kids.
The natural consequences of half a century of excessive piggishness. By Rod Dreher The American Conservative I don’t know about you, but “Kenosha, Wisconsin” has always been for me one of those place names — like “Duluth, Minnesota,” “Peoria, Illinois” — that convey a certain Midwestern solidity and […]
Bill Lind makes the predictable paleocon case for tsarism in the era of rising Bolshevism. Compulsory flag-worship vs. compulsory wokeness. By William S. Lind Traditional Right Thus far in the 2020 Presidential campaign, neither President Trump nor Mr. Biden has found a campaign theme that resonates with the […]
Of any outcome that had a reasonable chance in Weimar, the victory of the SPD/Iron Front would have been the most optimal. Ideally, there would be an umbrella alliance for all anti-authoritarians, i.e. everyone who rejects Trumpism, Neoconservatism, Neoliberalism, Fascism, and Communism. “To my conservative friends: let me […]
Violent clashes erupt between far-right groups and racial justice protesters in Portland and other cities

This is a comment from an Antifa-oriented social media page: “I have a comrade who was monitoring the Boogaloo pages before they got taken down and said they were very pro-gay, pro-black, etc, just very accelerationist and anti cop. I cant wrap my head around it. They had […]
This is a good discussion. A key issue the speakers point out is that the military clearly does not back Trump and that military leaders obviously regard him as an incompetent moron and a nuisance. I would add that the Deep State has worked diligently with the media […]
Sorry, Laura, but your team had 50 years of the Nixon-Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama police/carceral state. Now, you’re faced with a fourth-generation warfare insurgency. It’s time for some good old-fashioned civil unrest and high crime rates.

By Ben Hubbard and Maria Abi-Habib New York Times Lebanon’s health ministry said that at least 78 people had died and 4,000 suffered injuries in the explosions and fire that shook Beirut on Tuesday.
Ten years ago, I identified what I considered to be the “ten core demographics” that proponents of the ideas we discuss here at ATS will have to reach in order to eventually find the Holy Grail. The original piece is available here. It is interesting to evaluate the […]
This interview contains my general take on the great lumpenproletarian cultural revolution of 2020 from a Howard Cosell perspective.
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Well folks, it’s official, Donald Trump has declared war on America. Probably should have saw that coming. After all, I’ve long argued that our dayglow duce isn’t an isolationist but merely the world’s shittiest imperialist. After trying and […]

An 8-year-old was fatally shot in Atlanta near Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed, police say
There has been a number of incidents of this kind from different sides. A black Trump supporter was murdered. Someone was shot for saying “all lives matter.” A libertarian pro-BLM protestor was shot and killed in Dallas. Protestors have been attacked by people trying to run them down […]
Trump clearly has no understanding of fourth-generation warfare theory, guerrilla warfare theory, or counterinsurgency theory. A basic rule of fourth-generation warfare is that you never let your opponents gain the perceived moral upper hand. Having black-suited stormtroopers shooting at middle-aged women, journalists, old men, and military veterans is […]
James Clark Task and Purpose A group of military veterans have bolstered the ranks of protesters in Portland, Oregon by creating a “Wall of Vets.” The demonstrators told New York Times’ Mike Baker that they were there to ensure federal law enforcement officers didn’t infringe on the rights […]
