This photo says 1000 words. This photo by @MarthaRaddatz at the Lincoln Memorial is deeply disturbing. — Eli Clifton (@EliClifton) June 2, 2020 So if the United States is not a democracy, what is it? It’s certainly not a “republic” anymore. Perhaps the best term would be “an oligarchy with the consent of the […]

Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis seems to think so. Here he is schooling some random Karen out of her anti-Chinese hysteria. The Chinese are actually treating the people of the global south better than the Americans are. It’s something to keep in mind as the Trump regime tries to foment conflict over Hong Kong. […]

I am reminded of realities of some uncomfortable realities. I didn’t go to any protests today, not only because I’m afraid of Covid-19, but because they erupted so quickly I hadn’t mentally prepared myself to find one. When I read the news today, “oh boy,” and looked at photos of dozens of American cities in […]

Well, one petty little Bastille in Minneapolis. 🚨🚨🚨: Can't believe what I'm seeing the Minneapolis police has ABANDONED the 3rd precinct's building!! Rioters have stormed in the parking lot and are now damaging the building. — Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) May 29, 2020 It’s a start I guess. But with the number of agents provocateurs I’ve […]

It’s always difficult to keep track of anything during a protest, especially one that turns violent, but it looks like both individual police officers and store owners are destroying property and trying to pin it on the protesters. Apparently, a local journalist was also caught making fake gunshot sounds into his microphone. Once again, I’ve […]

As I’ve said repeatedly, the election this fall is Joe Biden’s to lose. Trump has failed to establish the kind of rapport with the media that comes almost effortlessly even to criminal incompetents like Andrew Cuomo and George W. Bush. I suppose he could try to tweet his way around CNN and MSNBC, but I […]

A black family in Midland Texas is held at gunpoint by an army of local police. According to “Redfish” the young man’s crime was running a stop sign.   Terrifying moments for a young Black man and his family in Texas, as numerous cops point guns on him and then assault his 90-year-old grandmother. His […]

When I was a child in the late 1970s, the Cold War was beginning to heat up again. The Cuban Missile Crisis was well before my time, and I was too young to remember the way the United States and the Soviet Union both went on high alert during the Yom Kippur War, but I […]

A video of a recent incident on the Upper West Side of Manhattan has blown up on Twitter. A 40-year-old white woman is walking her dog in Central Park. A 58-year-old black man tells her to put the dog on a leash, and a confrontation ensues. We don’t know what happened before the video, but […]

I personally am sick to death of having to choose between white men. On a more serious note, the choice in 2020 isn’t between George W. Bush and Hitler. It’s between George W. Bush and Pat Buchanan, between a neoconservative party of the Wall Street elite and a right wing populist party of  cultural conservatives […]
