Should We Compete with China? Can We?, by Godfree Roberts

In 2003 I published a book charting America’s decline in thirty-six social and economic indicators. I mailed copies to the Administration, Congress and department heads and received one reply, from the Director General of the Central Intelligence Agency, saying that the Agency had been providing almost identical information to the government for decades. Since then… … Read moreShould We Compete with China? Can We?, by Godfree Roberts

Cautious Optimism on Turks and Kurds, by Israel Shamir

Amid the usual hysterics of ‘impending genocide’ and ‘brutal betrayal’, the long-expected Turkish operation in northeast Syria is rolling, and Turkish troops accompanied by their Syrian rebel allies quickly advance into the former US occupation zone east of the Euphrates River, pushing the Kurdish nationalist militias away from the border. The American soldiers withdrew from… … Read moreCautious Optimism on Turks and Kurds, by Israel Shamir

Happy Birthday, People’s Republic of China! Heartfelt Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday, and thank you for being here, for standing, for not bending down and never surrendering.

Turkey Beats the War Drums, by Eric Margolis

More war in wretched Syria. Half the population is now refugees; entire cities lie shattered by bombing; bands of crazed gunmen run rampant; US, French, Israeli and Russian warplanes bomb widely.

Trump’s Impeachment Is a Deep-Democratic Coup Against Warren, by Ted Rall

Some Republicans see the Ukraine/Biden impeachment inquiry as a deep-state coup attempt against President Donald Trump. Some progressives are beginning to scratch the surface of an alternative — but equally cynical — analysis that I think leftists ought to consider: Trump’s impeachment is a DNC/centrist coup attempt against progressives inside the Democratic Party. Democrats could… … Read moreTrump’s Impeachment Is a Deep-Democratic Coup Against Warren, by Ted Rall

Is Impeachment Now Inevitable?, by Pat Buchanan

“There go the people. I must follow them, for I am their leader,” is a remark attributed to a French politician during the turbulent times of 1848.

Joe is scrambling to get out in front of the sentiment for impeachment… … Read moreIs Impeachment Now Inevitable?, by Pat Buchanan

Are You Ready to Die?, by Paul Craig Roberts

The Zionist Neoconservatives who run US foreign policy are now herding the US out of the remaining arms limitations agreements.

The Vacuum Left by the US in Syria Clears a Breeding Ground for ISIS, by Patrick Cockburn

“Never get into a well with an American rope” goes the saying spreading across the Syria to a Turkish invasion force.

When my dear friend and a great concert pianist from Beijing, Yuan Sheng, used to live in New York, recording, giving concert and teaching at prestigious Manhattan School of Music, he told me that he used to cry at night: “In the United States, they smear China.

Trump Is History and So Is the USA, by Paul Craig Roberts

When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,”… … Read moreTrump Is History and So Is the USA, by Paul Craig Roberts

How I Learned, or Didn’t, to Write, by Paul Craig Roberts

Dear Readers, A small number of you seem to be obsessed and frustrated by my typos. Allow me to explain to you.

Greg, John, Razib, and Me, by Fred Reed

A good bit more now than a decade ago I was a member of Steve Sailer’s HBD (Human Biodiversity) mailing list. This dealt with (who would have thought it’) human biodiversity, meaning such things as evolution, racial differences, evolutionary psychology, and genetics. It was a bright and usually congenial group, if doctrinaire, from which I… … Read moreGreg, John, Razib, and Me, by Fred Reed

Announcement: Purges and Counter-Narratives, by Ron Unz

I doubt that any event in human history has been as thoroughly discussed and documented as the Second World War, the gigantic global struggle that ended three generations ago and shaped our modern world. Elements of that conflict have probably been the subject of hundreds of thousands of books over the decades along with countless… … Read moreAnnouncement: Purges and Counter-Narratives, by Ron Unz

Diverse New World, by David L. McNaron

Albert Camus’ novel, The Plague, and Jean Raspail’s The Camp of the Saints seem to have wildly opposed themes: human solidarity in the former versus pathological altruism in the latter. There are striking similarities, however, between them. Both novels feature dual-threat scenarios: external threats combined with inner moral complicity. Both were prompted by large-scale disasters:… … Read moreDiverse New World, by David L. McNaron

Jacques Attali’s Message to the Gentiles: “Sovereignism” Is Anti-Semitism & a Jewish-Muslim Alliance Must Shut It Down, by Guillaume Durocher

Some people seem hell-bent on acting out anti-Semitic stereotypes. If Bernard-Henri Lévy embodies a caricatural warmongering supremacist Zionist, Jacques Attali has become the poster child for the anti-national globalist.

Are There Israelis in the U.S. Government?, by Philip Giraldi

Given Israel’s clearly demonstrated ability to manipulate and manage American government at all levels, there is inevitably considerable speculation about the presence of actual Israeli citizens in the federal and state bureaucracies. Very often, lists that appear on the internet focus on Jewish legislators, but in reality, few of them are likely to have Israeli… … Read moreAre There Israelis in the U.S. Government?, by Philip Giraldi

Is Trump At Last Ending Our ‘Endless Wars’?, by Pat Buchanan

The backstage struggle between the Bush interventionists and the America-firsters who first backed Donald Trump for president just exploded into open warfare, which could sunder the Republican Party.

Brexit: the Banality of Treason, by Andrew Joyce

One of my all-time favourite fictional stories about the nature of political belief is Flannery O’Connor’s The Barber, published in 1948.

Will the Russians Ever Learn?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Insult after insult after insult, and the pathetic Russian Foreign Ministry still asks, “do the American authorities have no wish to normalize the dialogue?” Of course they don’t. How much evidence does the Russian Foreign Ministry need? The Americans arrest the son of a Russian lawmaker abroad far outside any legal US jurisdiction—they kidnapped him—and… … Read moreWill the Russians Ever Learn?, by Paul Craig Roberts

Will the Democrats’ Treasonous Coup Against Trump Succeed?, by Paul Craig Roberts

The orchestrated coup to overthrow Trump based entirely on lies moves forward despite having been completely exposed, while the Trump administration’s indictments of the Obama era officials who organized the coup remain remote.

The Most Important Presidential Election Question (That No One Ever Asks!), by Brett Redmayne-Titley

Once again, the American voter has dutifully begun their quadrennial march to futility at the hands of another election cycle full of false prophets.

Yet these societal lemmings, known as “voters,”… … Read moreThe Most Important Presidential Election Question (That No One Ever Asks!), by Brett Redmayne-Titley

China is a sleeping giant.

Baghdad Hotel, off Sadoon Street in central Baghdad, not far from Tahrir Square, the focus of most protest movements in Iraq.
