There is a lot of interesting material that is covered in this.
I always thought Kim is too intelligent and independently minded to be a party-line leftist.
I don’t consider myself to be a “progressive.” My outlook transcends the progressive/reactionary and/or socialism/capitalism false dichotomies. But Kim is always such a refreshingly rational and lucid commentator. This analysis is spot on. The main disagreement that I have with Kim is the same one that I have […]
Kim is always refreshingly independent.
One thing that I have found interesting about the pandemic is the way that so many anarchists have acquiesced to the supposed authority and expertise of scientism or the white coat priesthood, or passively accepted media narratives. In others words, they have simply deferred to the authority of […]
The modern ruling class doesn’t bother with state-imposed censorship and instead farms it out to corporations, social media companies, and universities, which is why the First Amendment needs to be expanded to include all of these institutions. It’s the same as when they don’t bother setting up a […]
By far, the worst things about Trump are his total subservience to Israel and Saudi Arabia, along with his Iranophobia and Sinophobia. Trump seems to be aligned with a neo-realist faction of the ruling class, deep state, and power elite that regards China as the primary enemy as […]
This is a pretty good discussion of tech censorship, Trump’s foreign policy and a number of other things. Trump wanted to buy Greenland in order to frustrate China’s Belt Road initiative.
This is an interesting take. Kim is pretty solid on international relations.
There is a lengthy and pretty good discussion of foreign policy in this.
Universities, corporations, tech companies, banks, and media conglomerates should all be considered agencies or branches of government, just like Congress or the Division of Motor Vehicles. The Bill of Rights should apply to all of these institutions and organizations. Un
Trump’s Iran policy has been the worst aspect of his administration, along with his support for ongoing Israeli expansionism and the Saudi war in Yemen. If the neocons are successful in colonizing the Democrats and embedding themselves in a Biden administration, look for them to continue this same […]
Woke folks, where are you?
The most regrettable though predictable aspect of the recent uprising is that there has, for obvious reasons, been zero focus on the victims of state repression by the US and its allies in other countries. Most Americans, particularly the lumpenproletariat vanguard class, don’t know or don’t care about […]
What she says around 16:30 is the best comment.
LOL. The sovereign citizens of the Left.
So much for the “we need to vote to keep fascists off the Supreme Court” theory.
He would be if he was a civilian.

This isn’t a bad discussion of the financial system but the solutions are predictably milquetoast. Anti-banksters need to rediscover Proudhon. Ellen Brown is an attorney, chair of the Public Banking Institute, and author of thirteen books including Web of Debt and Banking on the People: Democratizing Money in […]
The Chinese have their problems but they’re being used by the US regime to deflect Americans’ attention from the fact that they’re being ruled by incompetent morons. William Jones is the Washington Bureau Chief for the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR). He is also a Non-Resident Fellow of the […]
WHO announces asymptomatic people who have COVID-19 are at very low risk of spreading the disease.
This is an interesting discussion. They both have unusual perspectives given their unusual backgrounds. John Wood, Jr. is a former Republican nominee for Congress, contributor at Quillette and Areo Magazines, and a national spokesperson for Braver Angels. Read his compelling op-ed about his experience growing up Black in […]
It’s rather ironic that the supposed social democratic utopia of Sweden has adopted the anti-lockdowners’ preferred laissez-faire approach to COVID-19.
Joshua and Ryan discuss local, national, and international politics; outrage and divisiveness in the current political climate; and the quagmire of disarray and turmoil created by tribalism and partisan politics with journalist and podcaster Kim Iversen.

This is 3 months old but it’s totally on point. I would generally prefer that voter turnout in US elections eventually dwindles to, say, the 30 percent range with the ruling class parties getting 20 percent of the vote and the fringe/freakazoid parties getting maybe 10 percent, with […]
This is quite interesting. Disaffected Sandernistas are seeking to build a populist-left mass people’s party that crosses over to the populist-right and disaffected Trump voters, and seeks to become a major party by 2024. Kim correctly points out that substantial sectors of the Left will be adamantly opposed […]
