I’ve noticed this over and over again. When politically incorrect crimes are involved (gun law violations, hate speech, hate crimes, rape accusations, domestic violence, this-or-that denialism, accusations of sex trafficking, right-wing rioting), the “soft on crime” progressives suddenly do an about-face and start to rival Lee Kuan Yew […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley What is a woman in 2021? Once upon a time, that was an easy question to answer. Boys had a penis and girls had a vagina and nothing in between existed. Then Western Society collectively woke the fuck […]

By Maria Abi-Habib and Oscar Lopez, New York Times Armed with blowtorches and hammers, women demonstrated at the president’s residence, demanding that Mexico’s government take action to address one of the world’s worst rates of gender violence. MEXICO CITY — Hundreds of women marched on Mexico’s seat of […]
The way the trans athletes drama will probably unfold will be something like this: More and more red states will ban transwomen from participating in women’s sports. Then the federal courts will step in and declare such bans to be discriminatory and unconstitutional. Sports leagues will adjust by […]
Not sure about the source on this but the story seems to be legitimate. Snake Baker, Daily Stormer I wish we could say “at least we’re getting funny headlines in 2021,” but these are all headlines we could have had going all the way back to 2017. Other […]
Kyrsten Sinema would seem to be the perfect name for a porn star. Krystal Ball reacts to Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s vote to not include the $15 minimum wage raise in the stimulus package.
Prince Andrew the Other appears to be finished.
In light of the recent allegations against Marilyn Manson, I wanted to share my personal story and encourage women to stop viewing themselves as helpless victims.
Is a crack emerging among the Blue Tribe? The response to AOC sharing her deeply personal experiences have been troubling. It comes from both the right and the left, and it reeks of misogyny. We need to call it out.
Keith, Emma & RJ Game Stop vs Wall Street, Robinhood, micro-revolts in the United States, Dodger Stadium’s COVID-19 vaccination site temporarily shut down after protesters gather at entrance, Robinhood was supposed to be for the little guy, Citadel, aristocrats pretending to be friends with the peasants, rich people […]
Journalist Zaid Jilani discusses the millions of dollars in speaker fees paid to Biden Treasury Secretary nominee, Janet Yellen. He explains how this newly unveiled information might affect her nomination process.
This is what real sexism and patriarchy look like, folks. Not microaggressions or a lack of gender parity in professional basketball. Do you find supporting your pre-adolescent daughter too bothersome? Just marry her off to a pedo. By Krista Larson, AP News KOIDU, Sierra Leone (AP) — The […]
Keith, Emma & RJ 01/01/21 – We’re back in business, historic spike in drug overdose deaths under COVID-19, governor Sisolak shut down Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in the least sober place on the planet, Carl Jung and the origins of mental illness, Don Wells just died of […]
BBC A prominent Saudi female activist, who campaigned for women’s right to drive, has been sentenced to more than five years in prison. Loujain al-Hathloul, 31, has already been in a maximum security prison for two and a half years. She and other activists were detained in 2018 […]
Cuomo’s incompetence is a good reason for him to be Attorney General. The last thing we should want is an effective government.
Tulsi Gabbard introduces bill that ties Title IX protections for female athletes to ‘biological sex’
I see two separate issues here. On one hand, I don’t think anyone has a human right or civil right to have their sports leagues funded by the federal government, particularly considering that both sports and education are crony-capitalist/state-capitalist institutions as much as anything. As I said elsewhere […]
Following in the footsteps of Gina Haspel and Samantha Power. Saagar Enjeti and Ryan Grim weigh in on the Biden Administration’s selection of an all female communications team.
Defund the military. Krystal and Saagar discuss the murder of Vanessa Guillen, a soldier who went missing from Fort Hood in April, whose remains were found in Texas.
Saagar Enjeti gives an update on Jeffrey Epstein’s madam Ghislaine Maxwell, after Maxwell was arrested Thursday on federal charges for facilitating and participating in sexual abuse acts with minors.
LOL. The wokesters vs. the military-industrial complex. Fracturing within the ruling class is always welcome.
The Sexual Revolution ended up like every other trend. It got boring after a while. Interestingly, women and homosexuals are more sexually active than heterosexual men, particularly lower income men, which is probably the result of widening class divisions. It typically takes money for straight guys to get […]
Kamala Harris would be the ruling class’ ideal figurehead at this point. A “woman of color” who consolidates the totalitarian humanist ideological framework with the left hand, while strengthening the police/carceral state with the right hand. Sen. Kamala Harris speaks on the Senate floor about historical and modern […]
Virtually everything that is wrong with “liberal” or “progressive” thinking, and the thinking of many others further to the left, is summed up in a single headline. By Madeline Osburn The Federalist For the first time in history, half of the senior leaders of the National Security Council […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley The MeToo Movement died last month. It bled out slowly as it limped to the barn. It’s hard to say who the triggerman was behind the coup de grace, but it wasn’t Joe Biden. That derelict beast is […]
By Susan McWilliams The American Conservative The town of Maricopa, in the southwestern corner of California’s San Joaquin Valley, has one diner and one gas station. Its landscape is all oil wells and sagebrush, grit and heat and dust, just as it was a century ago when the […]
Is the coronavirus a tool of the phallocracy? Not that it’s a pissing contest, but more men than women have died from COVID-19 so far. This is Rush Limbaugh-like “left parody” material here. By Ryan Heath and Renuka Rayasam Politico During this plague year, there is almost never […]
A leader of an organized atheist group (the far left of organized religion) interviews a member of the liberal media class (the new clerisy) on the role of the religious right (clerical oligarchs manipulating naive peasants on behalf of the right-wing of the ruling class/dying WASP elite/Likudniks/war profiteers). […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Good morning dearest motherfuckers, it is spring time in this the plague besotted year of our lord Satan, twenty-hundred-and-twenty, and both major party candidates for the highest office of the greatest democracy imperialism can buy are confirmed geriatric […]
By Holly Otterbein Politico Jess Scarane is campaigning for Joe Biden’s old Senate seat with a striking message for a Delaware Democrat: She believes his accuser, Tara Reade. Scarane, who said she is a victim of sexual assault, tweeted in March that when she listened to Reade talk […]
It seems that most people even on the far left and far right have a limited perception and definition of what concepts like the “state,” “ruling class,” or “power elite” actually mean. It would also seem that we need a much more modernized and expansive definition of these […]
#Metoo was never anything more than a media/corporate/Democratic Party-fueled “satanic panic” that was used to advance the interests of the left-wing of capitalism, the Democratic Party, and cultural war tribalism. Sexual assault is a real issue and involves real crimes of aggression, but one that was merely exploited […]
It’s funny how the parties and their mouthpieces have reversed roles overnight when it comes to sexual assault allegations against public officials. A real “We Have Always Been At War With Eastasia” moment.
It’s somewhat amusing that the presidential campaign has essentially become a contest over who is going to be the “Rapist-In-Chief.” At least the state is being exposed for what it is. Krystal and Saagar discuss Washington Post, NYT articles that push Joe Biden to address the Tara Reade […]
Saagar Enjeti blasts the hypocrisy of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who publicly announced her support for Dr. Ford’s Kavanaugh allegations, said Bill Clinton should have been removed from office for the Lewinsky affair, and was the first Senator to call for the removal of Al Franken.
Sexual assault is a real and serious issue, but one thing that’s great about the Tara Reade scandal is that it exposes the faux feminism of “#me too” as the New Clerisy-created scam that it was. Krystal Ball uncovers new Tara Reade evidence from Rich McHugh, who worked […]
Ryan Grim gives insight on his bombshell report that includes new footage of Tara Reade’s mother calling into the Larry King Live show in the early 90s to talk about her daughter’s assault by a “prominent Senator.”
Krystal Ball blasts the media and liberal figures for the blatant hypocrisy of Tara Reade, as new reports emerge that back Tara’s credibility.
I greatly respect both the atheist/anticlerical tradition within anarchism as well as the Christian anarchist tradition and other spiritually-based forms of anarchism. This video makes a compelling case for the anticlerical position, at least as it pertains to the Abrahamic traditions, although these people are not anarchists, just […]
By Jenny Graves The Conversation All over the world – in China, Italy, the United States and Australia – many more men than women are dying from COVID-19. Why? Is it genes, hormones, the immune system – or behaviour – that makes men more susceptible to the disease? […]
Infoshop.Org via Elle By Jessica Roy In the Kurdish region of northeast Syria, a female-only ecological commune has sprung up as a place for women displaced by the Syrian revolution and the rise of the Islamic State. The cooperative is called Jinwar—Kurdish for “Women’s Land”—and it’s home to […]
This is a rather tortured discussion, and I disagree with some of the political analysis, but it’s an interesting illustration of where the intellectually serious reformist-left is now.
Alexandria strikes me as a generally well-intentioned person who just can’t shake the partisanship and the SJWism. As I have said before, in order to be fully competitive, the Left needs to do five things: 1) recognize neoliberals as the primary enemy; 2) forget Democratic Party loyalty; 3) […]
The Voice of the Ruling Class covers for its anointed candidate.
Pussy-Grabber A vs Pussy-Grabby B. Krystal Ball tears into notorious Kavanaugh hearing attendant, actress Alyssa Milano, for her hypocrisy on the ‘believe women’ movement, after Milano dismissed Tara Reade’s story in public interviews.
