Buttigieg: What a Silly Clown

Read the leftists at Current Affairs H-bomb him to death here. This part is funny: Here’s another remarkable thing you’ll notice throughout Shortest Way Home: When Pete Buttigieg reports having meetings with people, it’s usually party bosses and advisers rather than ordinary voters, around whom he often seems uncomfortable. In a city that is ¼ Black, the most visible encounter he has with a Black constituent is an extremely telling one: A big man who was also a deacon at Mount Carmel, the fastest-growing black church in town, he leaned back in his seat and shifted between knowing glances...

Houston’s Botched Police Raid is Case Study on how Cops Spin and Twist the Truth

The coverup began from the get-go when the president of the Houston police union lashed out at police accountability activists last month, blaming them for the botched no-knock raid that left four cops shot, two citizens dead and many questions unanswered. "Enough is enough,” declared Joseph Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers’ Association, in the hours following the deadly raid that we now know was based on lies, deceptions and fabrications. “If you're the ones out there spreading the rhetoric that police officers are the enemy, well just know we've all got your number now....

The US and Russia Must Stop the Race to Nuclear War

When I became the leader of the Soviet Union in 1985, I felt during my very first meetings with people that what worried them the most was the problem of war and peace. Do everything in order to prevent war, they said. By that time, the superpowers had accumulated mountains of weapons; military build-up plans called for “space combat stations,” “nuclear-powered lasers,” “kinetic space weapons” and similar inventions. Thank God, in the end none of them were built. What is more, negotiations between the U.S.S.R. and the United States opened the way to ending the nuclear arms race. We...

TGIF: The Debate Over Taxation Cannot Be Value-Free

Lenin reportedly said, "The best way to destroy the capitalist system [is] to debauch the currency." If by "capitalist system"* we mean only what Adam Smith called "the obvious and simple system of natural liberty," we could improve on the quote: the best way to destroy it is to debauch the currency of thought and communication, language. Orwell of course understood this well and made it the centerpiece of Nineteen Eighty-Four. In a book on the German liberal social critic Karl Kraus (Anti-Freud: Karl Kraus's Criticism of Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry), Thomas Szasz distinguished between...

2/22/17 Brad Hoff on US plans for Syrian regime change in the 1980s – eerily similar to today

Brad Hoff, a US Marine veteran and writer on Middle East affairs, discusses the newly declassified CIA document from 1986 entitled "Syria: Scenarios of Dramatic Political Change," that spells out a regime change policy remarkably similar to today's anti-Assad rhetoric coming out of Washington; and why nobody bothers to consider that the successor to an overthrown secular autocratic state could be even worse - a radical Islamic State, for example.

12/4/16 Brad Hoff on Syria’s ‘endless insurgency’ and expectations for Trump’s foreign policy

Brad Hoff, Managing Editor of Levant Report, discusses why the Syrian government's recent military success in East Aleppo won't stop the insurgency any time soon; the Obama administration's treasonous support for al-Qaeda and other rebel groups in Syria that previously killed US soldiers in Iraq; and why Trump's somewhat non-interventionist rhetoric will likely be overcome by his coterie of foreign policy advisors.
