  • What a Socialist Really Wants

    What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn't a socialist. So let's talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, "I'm a socialist," what is that person thinking? With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It's as if they, albeit atheists, are guided...

    Bloody Shovel ^ | 14 November, 2018 | Spandrell
    Of course liberal politics kept being a mess. No cohesion in a ruling class which has no good incentive to stick to each other. But of course the incentive is still out there. A cohesive ruling class can monopolize power and extract rents from the whole society forever. The ghost of Lenin is always there. And so the arrow of history kept bending in Leninís direction. The West started to build up a Leninist power structure. Not overtly, not as a conscious plan. It just worked that way because the incentives were out there for everyone to see, and so...

    Americans are paying a fearsome price for global warming. The federal government's National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration reported earlier this week that the three powerful Atlantic hurricanes of 2017 -- Harvey, Irma and Maria -- cost Americans $265 billion, and massive Western forest fires another $18 billion. Scientists have shown that human-induced climate change has greatly increased the frequency and intensity of such disasters This week, New York City showed bold leadership with decisive action for climate safety and justice. Big Oil bought the Republican Congress with massive campaign donations. Republican senators led the witless Donald Trump to pull out...
  • Present Danger Is Not Different

    Shelves of libraries are filled up with numerous analyses, reviews and criticism of the Soviet communism. Authors define subversive policies of Leninís State as the only threat to peace and prosperity of the West. What is difficult to understand is that almost all of Western analysts missed the factor that made the Cold War unique among struggles: it focused on the war of ideas. Leninís ideology offered radically different political philosophy. The conflict between two concepts of human nature was the essence of Cold War.
  • Federal judge stops Michigan law that bans straight-ticket voting

    07/21/2016 5:46:14 PM PDT · by Impy · 35 replies ^ | 7-21-16 | Brad Devereaux
    A federal judge ruled Thursday that a Michigan law banning straight-ticket voting would place a disproportionate burden on African Americans' right to vote, and granted a request for a preliminary injunction to block enforcement of the law. Mark Brewer, a lawyer in the case and former head of the Michigan Democratic Party, argued that the elimination of straight-party voting would likely have a larger impact on African-American voters, noting "extremely high" correlations between the size of the African-American voting population within a district, and the use of straight-party voting in that district. New straight-ticket voting law in Michigan prompts lawsuit...

    Fuel Fix ^ | June 24, 2013 | Jennifer A. Dlouhy
    The Supreme Court on Monday dealt a big blow to the oil industry, when it decided not to hear a legal challenge against the federal government’s decision to approve the sale of fuel containing 15 percent ethanol. The decision not to hear the case — which was issued without comment Monday morning — was a defeat for the American Petroleum Institute and several other groups that have been vigorously fighting the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 approval of the E15 blend. Although the agency green-lighted the sale of E15 for cars and trucks made since 2007, the higher-ethanol blend is not...

    Welcome to 'Panthers Stadium' (UPDATED)By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 7/17/12 7:38 AM EDT National Democrats have repeatedly touted their stand against taking corporate money for their convention in September, and so it was striking to see two emails from the DNC host committee referring to the Charlotte venue where President Obama will speak as "Panthers Stadium." It's the place where the Panthers play, but it's actually called Bank of America stadium. A recent email from the host committee signed by former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile urged people to win a trip to Charlotte for the event, which will wrap...

    London, England-In yet another outrageous piece of social engineering from our coalition government, pensioners will be encouraged to downsize to smaller properties allowing local councils to rent their homes out as council houses and manage the tenancy. Local authorities will Ďhelpí older people move from their homes into Ďmore suitable accommodationí. Grant Schapps, the Housing Minister, who is a conservative member of parliament claims the scheme will solve a so-called Ďhousing crisisí as well as creating a system that will Ďpermit access to various sources of wealthí that are currently not being used to pay for care.

    Detroit ó General Motors Co. CEO Dan Akerson wants the federal gas tax boosted as much as $1 a gallon to nudge consumers toward more fuel-efficient cars, and he's confident the government will soon shed its remaining 26 percent stake in the once-bankrupt automaker. "I actually think the government will be out this year ó within the next 12 months, hopefully within the next six months," Akerson said in a two-hour interview with The Detroit News last week. He is grateful for the government's rescue of GM ó "I have nothing but good things to say about them" ó but...

    Socialism Is BackFrom the January 24, 2010, issue of NR ‚ÄėSocialism‚ÄĚ is a word that has vexed thoughtful conservatives since 2008, along with the related terms ‚ÄúMarxist,‚ÄĚ ‚Äúradical,‚ÄĚ and the whole nomenclature of leftish extremism. In his painstakingly documented book Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, Stanley Kurtz dwells at great and profitable length on the president‚Äôs connections, and his coterie‚Äôs connections, with avowedly socialist and radical organizations. Glenn Beck, Jonah Goldberg, and other observers have with varying degrees of rigor pursued related lines of inquiry, locating affinities between Obama‚Äôs clique, along with mainstream Democrats more...

    I'll bet you didn't know (and the media would never tell you) that the Jim Jones/People's Temple mass suicide in Guyana was a Marxist/Lenninst revolutionary act. In 1976 the Peoples Temple changed a San Francisco political juggernaut which was secretly harboring designs of world communist revolution to a paranoid North Korean-style enclave in Jonestown in 1978. There, they negotiated with the Soviet Union, North Korea and others for a possible exodus. A Soviet delegation visited Jonestown, showering it with praise.

    At the end of Glenn Beck's show on Fox News on May 26, 2010, he told us to find and read "Philip Dru: Administrator". This is a link to that story, so we can compare it with what Obama, ( read Barack Obama: Administrator. A History of Today. ) will do next. The book was written by Col. Edward Mandell House "Blueprint for Tyranny". Though Philip Dru: Administrator is written in the form of a novel to make it more acceptable to the general public, it is a blueprint for the radical socialist revolution that occurred in the United States...

    The fact is that we live in a time of fateful challenges. As a people and a nation we are under test. This challenge is, of course, Marxism-Leninism. There is no mystery in its strategies and tactics. It has always been concrete and spelled out in black and white. It has also been openly and actively tested in the economic, political, and ideological struggle for control around globe. Lenin, the founder of the first Communist state, put it simply: "First we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. We will encircle the last bastion of capitalism, the United...

    According to an article in the New York Daily News of April 11, Mayor Mike Bloomberg has now secured the support of the county chair of the Bronx Borough Republican Party. New York election laws permit an independent (or a member of another party) to run in a party primary for Mayor of New York City, if that candidate gets permission to run from 3 of the 5 boroughs of the city. Bloomberg had already been endorsed for re-election this year by the leaders of the Brooklyn and Staten Island Republican Parties. Bloomberg has been a registered independent since late...

    Conservative exasperation with media bias is a tired refrain, a waste of energy. Complaints of bias start from the premise that press coverage ought to be fair and objective. But is this the premise on which today's mainstream media is based? It's not. The premise that now guides the mainstream media is something we haven't seen before in this country - thus the never-ending consternation of conservatives at the blatant bias of the media and the nonchalance of its practitioners when caught in the act. We have seen press behavior like this before, though - not here, but in China...

    In the first speech of his "whistle-stop" tour to Washington, Barack Obama talked global warming to a crowd of shivering Philadelphians who braved 18 degree (sub 10 degree wind-chill) temperatures on their journey to the 30th Street Train Station. It's hard to believe that, given the arctic-like temperatures the northeast has suffered through this winter, the president-elect didn't instruct his writers to reword this passage from his "historic" speech: [my emphasis] "Only a handful of times in our history has a generation been confronted with challenges so vast. An economy that is
