Where Are the ‘High Crimes’?, by Pat Buchanan

“Quid pro quo” was the accusatory Latin phrase most often used to describe President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call asking for a “favor” from the president of Ukraine. New Year’s prediction: The Roman poet Horace’s Latin depiction: “Parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus” — “The mountains went into labor, and brought forth a mouse” –… … Read moreWhere Are the ‘High Crimes’?, by Pat Buchanan

Why the ‘Left’ Is Dead in the Water (Revisited), by Gilad Atzmon

Introduction: Following his party’s catastrophic defeat, humiliated Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn announced this morning that he would discuss with the party its need for a ‘process of reflection’ and promised that he himself “will lead the party during this period to ensure this discussion takes place.” I will not hold my breath waiting for Labour… … Read moreWhy the ‘Left’ Is Dead in the Water (Revisited), by Gilad Atzmon

Indigenous Bolivia Ready to Go to War Against Fascism, by Andre Vltchek

Bolivia, December 2019, three weeks after the fascist coup. It is devilishly cold. My comrade’s car is carefully navigating through the deep mud tracks. Enormous snow-covered mountain peaks are clearly visible in the distance. The Bolivian Altiplano; beloved, yet always somehow hostile, silent, impenetrable. So many times, in the past I came close to death… … Read moreIndigenous Bolivia Ready to Go to War Against Fascism, by Andre Vltchek

Donald Trump and Israel: When Does a ‘Passionate Attachment’ Threaten National Security?, by Philip Giraldi

In his declared astonishingly that “I have said to people when they ask me if this Capitol crumbled to the ground, the one thing that would remain is our commitment to our aid…and I don’t even call it aid…our cooperation with Israel.

Is Corbyn the Lesser Evil?, by Eric Striker

Once upon a time I had a debate with a number of nationalists over the prospect of America’s first black president in 2008. A number of acquaintances demanded everyone vote for “the white guy,” John McCain, whose 36 year long career as top traitor in Congress was finally brought to an end when Satan appointed… … Read moreIs Corbyn the Lesser Evil?, by Eric Striker

Early History of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic, by John Wear

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an inappropriate name for a very serious illness. It is clearly inappropriate since fatigue is associated with many chronic disorders and is common in the healthy population. The name does not reflect the severity or associated abnormalities of the syndrome, making patients easy candidates for dismissal by the medical profession,… … Read moreEarly History of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic, by John Wear

Why Trump’s New Executive Order Matters, by Eric Striker

The Trump administration and Betsy DeVos, an heiress who was given the Department of Education because of her large donations to the GOP, have been fighting Israel’s wars on campus for months now.

Charging for Comments?, by Ron Unz

Over the last couple of years, I think this website has evolved into a successful opinion webzine and discussion forum, with our traffic now eclipsing the overwhelming majority of other alternative media publications. For example, we apparently now get several times the traffic of Takimag on the Right or Counterpunch on the Left. Our very… … Read moreCharging for Comments?, by Ron Unz

The Israel Lobby’s Hidden Hand in the Theft of Iraqi and Syrian Oil, by Agha Hussain and Whitney Webb

The outsized role of U.S. Israel lobby operatives in abetting the theft of Syrian and Iraqi oil reveals how this powerful lobby also facilitates more covert aspects of U.S.-Israeli cooperation and the implementation of policies that favor Israel. Kirkuk, Iraq — “We want to bring our soldiers home. But we did leave soldiers because we’re… … Read moreThe Israel Lobby’s Hidden Hand in the Theft of Iraqi and Syrian Oil, by Agha Hussain and Whitney Webb

The Art of Doublespeak: Bellingcat and Mind Control, by Edward Curtin

In the 1920s, the influential American intellectual Walter Lippman argued that the average person was incapable of seeing or understanding the world clearly and needed to be guided by experts behind the social curtain. In a number of books he laid out the theoretical foundations for the practical work of Edward Bernays, who developed “public… … Read moreThe Art of Doublespeak: Bellingcat and Mind Control, by Edward Curtin

How Can the U.S. Dare Lecture China About the Rights of the Muslims?, by Andre Vltchek

In 2019, I have written a long analysis about “the Uygur issue”; analysis which will be soon published as a book. For some time, I have been warning the world that the West, and the United States in particular, are helping to radicalize the Uyghurs in Xinjiang Province and outside. And not only that: I… … Read moreHow Can the U.S. Dare Lecture China About the Rights of the Muslims?, by Andre Vltchek

Is It Jaw-Jaw or War with Iran?, by Pat Buchanan

“Jaw-jaw is better than war-war,” is attributed, wrongly, say some historians, to Winston Churchill. Still, the words lately came to mind. While last week ended with a hopeful U.S.-Iranian prisoner exchange that was hailed by President Donald Trump — “Thank you to Iran for a very fair negotiation. See, we can make a deal together”… … Read moreIs It Jaw-Jaw or War with Iran?, by Pat Buchanan

Will Artificial Intelligence Destroy Us or Simply Make Humans Irrelevant?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Artificial Intelligence is generally seen as a great advance and benefit for mankind. Smart humans, however, see it as our undoing and even possibly our extermination. Much of modern technology has far more prospect for harm than for good. Consider nuclear weapons. Consider Monsanto’s glysophate. Consider 5G. There are a large number of technologies that… … Read moreWill Artificial Intelligence Destroy Us or Simply Make Humans Irrelevant?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Congress Is Trump’s Co-Conspirator Against Liberty, by Ron Paul

Imagine that President Trump spent his phone call with the Ukrainian president threatening to withhold military aid unless the Ukrainian government agreed to use the money to purchase weapons from a US manufacturer. Does anyone seriously think that foreign service professionals and deep state operatives would be so shocked and offended by Trump’s request that… … Read moreCongress Is Trump’s Co-Conspirator Against Liberty, by Ron Paul

The Zionist Campaign Against ICE, by Eric Striker

The mass media, NGOs and professional open borders activists have made agitating for the abolition of ICE their top priority under the Trump administration. The bad faith criticism is that illegal immigrant detention facilities are rife with abuses. In corporate media outlets, stories of immigrants dying in ICE and CBP custody have tried to tap… … Read moreThe Zionist Campaign Against ICE, by Eric Striker

Aux Armes, Citoyens! the Americans Attack, by Eric Margolis

Citizens of France. To arms! Man the ramparts. The American barbarians are coming. They shall not pass! Le Trump’s threat to France’s splendid wines and Roquefort cheese are the gravest menace France has faced since the Germans invaded this fair land in 1914.

For the Love of Jews, by Israel Shamir

England and France, two antagonists, two mainstays of European civilisation, are simultaneously engulfed in paroxysm of Judeophilia. The result of the forthcoming very important parliamentary elections in Britain hinges on this issue, with Labour and Tories competing who will express their love of Jews more profusely, while the Jews can’t decide whom they loath less…. … Read moreFor the Love of Jews, by Israel Shamir

Britain’s Reign as a World Superpower Is Over – Thanks to Brexit, by Patrick Cockburn

Future historians may well pick 2019 as a decisive year in the decline of the US and UK as world powers. Of course, the UK started at a much lower level in the international pecking order than the US, but the direction of travel in both cases is the same. This geopolitical shift comes exactly… … Read moreBritain’s Reign as a World Superpower Is Over – Thanks to Brexit, by Patrick Cockburn

The Skeletons in Katie McHugh’s Closet, by Eric Striker

Former Breitbart editor Katie McHugh’s voyage from politically incorrect mini-celebrity to Southern Poverty Law Center informant provided plenty of sensationalist media last month. The 29-year-old McHugh, who is based out of Oakton, Virginia, decided to publicly come out as the person who violated her friends and colleagues’ trust, likely in pursuit of a Slate podcast,… … Read moreThe Skeletons in Katie McHugh’s Closet, by Eric Striker

Democrats’ Diversity — Only in the Back of the Bus, by Pat Buchanan

The “Our diversity is our strength!” Party is starting to look rather monochromatic in its upper echelons these days. The four leading candidates for its presidential nomination — Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg — are all white. The six candidates who have qualified for the Dec. 19 debate — the front… … Read moreDemocrats’ Diversity — Only in the Back of the Bus, by Pat Buchanan

Trump Gets Away with Stuff Because He Does, by Ted Rall

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” President Donald Trump said at an Iowa campaign rally in January of 2016. That remark gets quoted a lot, mostly by liberals bemoaning the unquestioning loyalty of the president’s stupid supporters. But there’s another, more interesting,… … Read moreTrump Gets Away with Stuff Because He Does, by Ted Rall

The Holocaust, by Paul Craig Roberts

Having been fraudulently declared on Wikipedia by CIA and Zionist trolls to be a “Holocaust Denier,” I decided to see what that meant. I turned to Ron Unz’s article “American Pravda: Holocaust Denial.” Just as incompetent Wikipedia attributed David Irving’s views to me, no doubt Wikipedia will credit me with authorship of Ron Unz’s article…. … Read moreThe Holocaust, by Paul Craig Roberts

Who Is Making US Foreign Policy?, by Stephen F. Cohen

President Trump campaigned and was elected on an anti-neocon platform: he promised to reduce direct US involvement in areas where, he believed, America had no vital strategic interest, including in Ukraine. He also promised a new détente (“cooperation”) with Moscow. And yet, as we have learned from their recent congressional testimony, key members of his… … Read moreWho Is Making US Foreign Policy?, by Stephen F. Cohen

Seeking Truth from PISA Facts, by Godfree Roberts

Every three years the OECD tests fifteen year-olds around the world in reasoning and self-expression.
