For those who are disappointed by Tulsi’s decision to back Sleepy Joe, I’d say never expect but so much from maverick politicians. Their sole function is to simply move the Overton Window by pushing ideas from the margins further into the mainstream discourse. Of course, Tulsi is ultimately […]
The Democratic primaries have reaffirmed my longstanding conviction that electoral politics is a joke and a waste of time. The Democrats had literally dozens of candidates, including some fairly interesting ones (Tusli, Bernie, Yang, Williamson, Ojeda, Gravel) and who gets the nomination? Some dude with dementia who has […]
The 2020 electoral season will be as lame as the 2016 season, with the addition of coronavirus. If you feel you must vote, vote Libertarian or Green.
Bless her heart. She tried.
If Tulsi were Bernie’s running mate, that would be the best reason to vote for Bernie (not that I am an advocate of electoral politics). Of all the major party candidate, she is head and shoulders above the others. Is she where I am politically? Hell, no. But […]
My take on the Trump impeachment is the same as Mike Gravel’s and Tulsi Gabbard’s. There are many things that are objectionable about Trump (and virtually all other presidents), and calling him out on those things would be justifiable if Congress cared to do so. But the impeachment […]
Some pretty good insights into how “democracy” actually works: The “people’s representatives” receive their marching orders from the overlords of the empire, which they are then expected to rubber stamp.
BINGO! Sputnik News ” She also introduced a resolution calling on the House to censure Trump on five issues she implied were far more substantial. Those include carrying out wars without congressional approval, illegally “occupying and pillaging” Syria, “recklessly enabling” Turkey to invade Northern Syria and ethnically cleanse […]
This video is a response to Kevin Castley of “Liberal Hawk Memes for Moral Universality teens” and “Superpower broadcasting” video against Tulsi Gabbard. His video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uEJU… As promised, all of my sources which I sight in the video are verified in the link below, read and learn for […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Elections are different for anarchists. We’ve already made our peace with the basic fact that representative democracy is a sham even when it’s not rigged by moneyed oligarchs. So when we do actually take part in the process, […]
This is pretty impressive. She nails it on Saudi Arabia.
I almost never endorse politicians. I generally regard all elected officials, from the President to dogcatchers, as employees of the real ruling class (C. Wrights Mills’ “power elite”). Voting is merely participating in the king’s coronation rituals in a way that conveys legitimacy on the state. However, there […]
Tulsi Gabbard is turning out to be the most anti-statist of any of the presidential candidates (a very low standard to say the least). She has also introduced legislation to end federal marijuana prohibition as well. For many years, I have argued that the central focus of anarchists, […]
It’s obviously true that most of the MSM, particularly television, is simply the propaganda arm of the Democratic National Committee, just as FOX, talk radio, Christian broadcasting, and the Wall Street Journal are simply the propaganda arm of the Republican National Committee. By Caitlin Johnstone Medium Hawaii Congresswoman […]
A good discussion of how the corporate imperialists circle the wagons around anyone with even moderately anti-interventionist views. US foreign policy is essentially a Roman-like imperialism that is committed to large-scale massacres as a matter of policy. The Democrats and Republicans are fine with this, and committed to […]
In an article I wrote for LewRockwell.Com 12 years ago, I introduced my theory of “totalitarian humanism” (i.e., the co-optation of cultural leftism by the state and capitalism) as the emerging ideology of the ruling class. Read the original article here. These were the core precepts of “totalitarian […]
An interesting article from Daily Kos. I know the author of this piece, who is generally friendly to ATS. By Alex Shepard Daily Kos he election of 2020 is approaching us fast, and the primary season will be here before we know it. Already, the 2020 democratic field […]
This is a pretty good discussion of Gabbard. From what I can tell, she’s basically just a moderate who trends liberal on social issues, who is pro-military, pro-Israel, and pro-terror war but who merely thinks the neocon/neoliberal foreign policy paradigm is insane (which it is), largely from her […]
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard just returned from a secret trip to Syria and told Jake Tapper in a CNN Exclusive said any reconciliation would have to involve Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.
