The Vietnamization of Ukraine

The Vietnamization of Ukraine

As Ukraine’s defeat in the war moves closer, the neocons are desperate to draw the US further into the fight. Over the weekend, former US State Department official Victoria Nuland told ABC News that the US must help facilitate Ukrainian missile attacks deep inside Russian territory. The Biden Administration has to this point avoided involvement in such attacks, likely because Russian president Vladimir Putin has warned that Russia will strike any facility that supplies or facilitates strikes...

Closer to Nuclear War

Closer to Nuclear War

I can’t help but wonder what proponents of America’s participation in the old Cold War dinosaur known as NATO are thinking about NATO officials who are contemplating sending NATO military personnel into Ukraine to train Ukrainian troops in their war against Russia. Those who relish the idea of nuclear war between the United States and Russia undoubtedly must be ecstatic over the possibility of such a move. It has been clear for some time that Ukraine is losing its war with Russia. Ukraine has...

Ukraine Formally Asks NATO To Send Troops For First Time, Pentagon Mulling

Ukraine Formally Asks NATO To Send Troops For First Time, Pentagon Mulling

The continued inevitable and disastrous slide into a WW3 nuclear-armed confrontation between Russian and the West continues as The New York Times reports NATO appears to actually be seriously mulling sending troops to Ukraine to serve in the role as "trainers" at a moment Kiev is desperate to tap and train up new manpower. And this would be closer to front line positions as well. "NATO allies are inching closer to sending troops into Ukraine to train Ukrainian forces, a move that would...

Free Speech For Me But Not For Thee

Free Speech For Me But Not For Thee

Can an idea be dangerous? Can a dangerous idea be expressed? Can the government punish ideas it deems to be dangerous? These are not questions one regularly asks in America because of our rich tradition of protecting the freedom of speech from infringement by the government. Yet, we appear to be on the cusp of the mass suppression of public speech. Nothing would be more unnatural and un-American than the prohibition of the expressions of ideas. Here is the back story. The Hamas assault on...

Thomas Massie Said ‘No.’

Thomas Massie Said ‘No.’

"Courage is contagious." - WikiLeaks T- shirt supporting Julian Assange. Rep. Thomas Massie is that very rare politician who is actually inspiring. His defiant principled opposition to the recent moves by Congress called out the madness of flooding foreign countries with more money and weapons while our own citizens suffer. Thomas Massie said no. So, of course Massie's brave voice of reason is now under attack by well-funded foreign lobbyists hell-bent on perpetual war. I was inspired to make...

A Nanny State Idiocracy: A Tale of Too Many Laws and Too Little Freedom

A Nanny State Idiocracy: A Tale of Too Many Laws and Too Little Freedom

We are caught in a vicious cycle of too many laws, too many cops, and too little freedom. It’s hard to say whether we’re dealing with a kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves), a kakistocracy (a government run by unprincipled career politicians, corporations and thieves that panders to the worst vices in our nature and has little regard for the rights of American citizens), or a Nanny State Idiocracy.  Whatever the label, this overbearing despotism is what...

Who tried to pull the rug on Netanyahu, and why?

Who tried to pull the rug on Netanyahu, and why?

The core issues at the heart of release of hostages held in Gaza were two: A complete cessation to the war and full withdrawal of all Israeli forces. Netanyahu’s position was that whatever the hostage outcome, the IDF would return to Gaza and that the war there might continue for ten years, he said. These were the most sensitive words in Israeli politics – with Israeli politics electrically polarised around them. The continuation or fall of the Israeli government could hinge on them: The Right...

The Republican US House Leadership Loves the Nanny State

The Republican US House Leadership Loves the Nanny State

Republicans have developed a reputation for ridiculing nanny state policies of the United States government that regulate an array of activities and products as if Americans are all infants or toddlers unable to look out for their own best interests. Nonetheless, the Republican United States House of Representatives leadership has announced it is putting on the House floor for votes this week several bills that seek to expand the power and scope of the nanny state. Do you think you are capable...

Shameless

Shameless

Incredibly the Israeli genocide in Gaza is now reaching new heights of violence. Casualty figures are not coming in, as the attacks are so bad that bodies cannot be recovered, medics cannot travel and there are almost no medical facilities operational now anyway. We now see that the Western injunctions not to attack Rafah were a smokescreen of lies to mask complicity. The final pocket of Gaza is being ruthlessly ethnically cleansed and its infrastructure will be destroyed like all the rest. It...

NATO’s New Burden-Sharing Objectives

NATO’s New Burden-Sharing Objectives

From its founding in 1949 until the start of NATO’s proxy war against Russia in 2022, the principal troublesome issue for the Alliance was Washington’s repeated calls for greater burden-sharing on the part of its allies. Discontent on Washington’s part emerged early and often. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles, warned NATO’s European members that unless they did more to enhance collective defense the United States might be compelled to reassess the extent...

Countdown Begins for Russia’s Ukraine Offensive

Countdown Begins for Russia’s Ukraine Offensive

A study by the Harvard Business School in experimental psychology relating to people’s tendency to “shoot the messenger” came up with a  startling finding that such human behaviour stems in part from a desire to make sense of chance processes.  Simply put, receiving bad news activates the desire to sense-make, and in turn, activating this desire enhances the tendency to dislike bearers of bad news. In the current churning around the Ukraine war, French President Emmanuel Macron...

Will the Fed Lose Control?

According to new reports from the Social Security and Medicare trustees, Social Security and a Medicare fund that pays for hospital expenses will both begin running deficits in 2035 and 2036. Disappointingly, but not surprisingly, Congress was too preoccupied spending billions more on military aid for foreign countries and banning TikTok to pay attention to the looming bankruptcy of the two largest federal entitlement programs. Many in Congress no doubt believe they can ignore the impending...

Empire Managers Explain Why This New Protest Movement Scares Them

Empire Managers Explain Why This New Protest Movement Scares Them

The U.S. secretary of state and a Bilderberg surveillance tech oligarch have both made some very interesting admissions about the burgeoning protest movement against the U.S.-backed slaughter in Gaza and the problems it poses for the empire they help run. During a vitriolic rant about university demonstrators at the Ash Carter Exchange on Innovation and National Security on Tuesday, Palantir CEO Alex Karp came right out and said that if those on the side of the protesters win the...

I predict future happiness for Americans,if they can prevent the government fromwasting the labors of the people underthe pretense of taking care of them.-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Last week, Sens.

The Proof of Censorship is…Censored

It’s not been a good week for the Censorship Industrial Complex.  The machine has been built and put into action over nearly a decade but largely in secret. Its way of doing business has been via surreptitious contacts with media and tech companies, intelligence carve-outs in “fact-checking” organizations, payoffs, and various other clever strategies, all directed toward boosting some sources of information and suppressing others. The goal has always been to advance regime narratives and...
