Biden Turns Up the Heat on America’s Cold Wars

pexels moein moradi 672636

President Joe Biden declared “America is back” and his administration is ceaselessly heating up Washington’s Cold Wars against Russia and China. There are new sanctions, constant hostile rhetoric, and innumerable threats against both nuclear armed states. Under Biden, the U.S. military and its allies are normalizing frequent, highly provocative military exercises on China and Russia’s coasts as well as their near abroad. Washington is also proud to announce that it will be waging cyberwarfare imminently against Moscow and is hinting Beijing is up next. On the basis of baseless accusations...

Will Trump’s Hawkishness on China Become Joe Biden’s ‘New Normal’?

Pexels Manuel Joseph 19872

Since 2020, Americans have been implored, even trained, to accept fiat realities at home that would not so long ago have seemed inconceivable. The “new normal” includes arbitrary lockdowns, curfews, censorship, the burgeoning domestic terror war, and a de facto government economic assault on small businesses, the poor, and the middle class. The American people have been encouraged to wear two masks and binge Tiger King on Netflix instead of rightfully objecting to this faux humanitarian tyranny. Now it seems the ruling class is preparing us to not only accept but support an ever...

8/1/18 Arnold Isaacs on Fake Islamophobia in America

Arnold Isaacs talks "Islamophobia", and whether the alarmists who claim Muslim operatives are scheming to take over the country have legitimate cause for concern. He explains that most of this talk is nothing more than conspiracy, and that Muslim activists generally conduct their advocacy in the open. Not to mention that for the most part they are strong proponents of personal freedoms—in fact, the real extremists know better than to agitate for Sharia Law, because that could out them as such. So why is so-called "Islamophobia" (a dubious term) so widespread? Discussed on the show:...

John Bennett’s Jihad

In seeking a suitable description of Oklahoma State Representative -- and compulsive mosque-baiter -- John Bennett, one must resist the temptation to use the familiar epithet "horse's ass," even though the effluent that emerges from Bennett's tax-devouring skull cave is as disagreeable as what one associates with that equine orifice, which is, we must remember, an otherwise harmless portion of a dumb beast's anatomy. Although Bennett is an ambulatory pile of used food, he is decidedly not harmless. "Demagogue" is likewise inappropriate, given that the term originally referred to a capable...
