    Some members of the Thug Shake Central Group defended Teixeira, arguing the young guardsman only posted the materials to the group in an attempt to spark discussion and keep friends informed. "This guy was a Christian, anti-war, just wanted to inform some of his friends about what’s going on," a 17-year-old member of the group told the New York Times. "We have some people in our group who are in Ukraine. We like fighting games, we like war games."
  • How the IRS Allowed China Nonprofits to Buy Code Pink

    The ‘House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party’ was in session when a Code Pink activist disrupted it by holding up a sign reading, “China Is Not Our Enemy.” “The United States needs collaboration, not competition, with China,” she insisted. Collaboration was the correct term. While most people stopped paying attention to Code Pink in the aftermath of the Iraq War, the leftist anti-war group never went away, but beyond the backing for Venezuela, Iran and the other usual terror states, it’s become a vocal defender of China. The level of collaboration between Code Pink and China is unusual...

    San Francisco Bayview ^ | July 18, 2007 | Bud Hazelkorn
    The national antiwar-impeachment group, World Can’t Wait, drew 150 people, representing the range of the city’s cultural milieu, to the San Francisco Main Library’s Koret Auditorium Sunday to “drive out the Bush Regime” and reverse its slide toward what many see as an imperial presidency. The meeting was one of at least 11 such events around the country this month and last, from New York to Los Angeles, mobilizing public sentiment for impeachment, despite the repeated insistence by Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party leadership that the issue is “off the table.” An American Research Group poll last week found...

    A former TV journalist and Ukraine War critic has been disqualified from running against Russian President Vladimir Putin in next year’s presidential election. Yekaterina Duntsova, 40, an independent politician who wanted to run on a platform to end the war with Ukraine, had her candidacy application unanimously rejected by the country’s electoral commission on Saturday, which cited "numerous violations" in the papers she had submitted. Duntsova had submitted her application on Wednesday having secured the endorsement of 500 supporters as required by Russian election law. The commission found 100 errors in her nomination papers, including mistakes in the spelling of...
  • Hard-left activists Code Pink's history of Israel-bashing revealed: Anti-war feminist group that's under congressional scrutiny over ties to Chinese Communist Party has a record of links to Iran, Hamas and 'antisemitism'

    The hard-left Code Pink activists who face congressional scrutiny over their links to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) also have longstanding sympathies with Iran and Hamas and a record of bashing Israel, can reveal. House Republicans have in recent weeks launched a probe against the outspoken, anti-war group to find out whether its leaders take Beijing's money and in return spread CCP propaganda. Against this backdrop, spoke to observers who have tracked Code Pink's activities these past two decades, and found that members have sympathized with other despotic regimes globally.
  • ‘A Jewish hit list’: Antisemitic mapping project seen as incitement to violence in Massachusetts

    Boston Globe ^ | June 15, 2022 | Mike Damiano
    On Friday June 3, as the Jewish holiday weekend of Shavuot began, an unusual website appeared: It showed a map of Massachusetts chock-full of dots interconnected by multicolored lines, like the corkboard of an overzealous detective or, perhaps, a conspiracy theorist. Each dot represented an institution — a school, a corporation, a police department, a nonprofit — and the lines showed their ties to one another and to Jewish organizations or philanthropists. The institutions and their purported relationships were highlighted, the Mapping Project’s anonymous creators wrote, “so we can dismantle them.” In the Boston-area Jewish community, the Mapping Project has...

    In case you don't know who she is, Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Casey Sheehan, one of our brave soldiers who lost his life in Iraq on April 4, 2004. President Bush visited with her shortly after her loss. Back then, Cindy said: I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis,' Cindy said after their meeting. 'I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith. Now Cindy hates GWB, and she's literally camping out in a ditch outside of his ranch in Crawford, Texas, asking to...

    ONCE AGAIN, the rioters are looting and pillaging Ferguson, Missouri. Ferguson However, we don’t believe the protests and riots that ensued were ever about Michael Brown. The entire movement represents a threat to our Republic. Yes, you read that correctly… Those supporting, funding, supplying and organizing the recent race riots are a clear and present danger to the Republic of the United States. If you were watching the news broadcasts about the protests in New York City, you undoubtedly saw many people carrying signs reflecting their beliefs. But wait. The people holding those signs don’t look even barely capable of...

    "We must firmly resist this racist, anti-communist witch hunt and remain committed to building an international peace movement," said Code Pink and ANSWER Coalition. On Monday, anti-war organizations across the United States issued an open letter to reject a trend that targets China and to call on people to reject what they call the "new McCarthyism." "From The New York Times to Fox News, there's a resurgence of the Red Scare that once shattered many lives and threatened movements for change and social justice," said the letter titled "McCarthyism is back: Together we can stop it." It warned the new...

    ...A political magazine, The American Conservative will presumably comport itself with a bit more dignity than the average tabloid -- or maybe not, given the crew behind it. Executive editor Scott McConnell was formerly editorial page editor of the New York Post, and right-wing fulminator Pat Buchanan will serve as an advisor and contributor. Backed by millionaire New York Press columnist Taki Theodoracopulos, the new biweekly is expected to be more conservative than either The Weekly Standard or the National Review. It launches in September.... (snip)

    Who decided to send the SAS to Ukraine? What are they doing there? What would happen were they to be killed by Russian forces, or captured by them? And what was a British surveillance plane, capable of carrying 30 people, doing over the Black Sea last September, when a bungling Russian pilot almost shot it down, only failing because his missile was a dud? What would have happened if the missile had worked, and many British servicemen and women had died? Nobody will answer these questions when I ask them. ...First of all, what interest does the United Kingdom have...

    Pope Francis says Abu Dhabi document ‘came from God’ and you ‘can’t understand it otherwise’'It was something that came from God,' Francis said. 'You can't understand it otherwise, because none of us had this in mind.'“I have been thinking a lot these days – and we talked about it with the Grand Imam – about how the idea of the Abu Dhabi Document came about,” Francis said. The Pope went on to explain how the idea of the Abu Dhabi document was born during a lunch with the Grand Imam where they broke bread and gave it to each other...

    Monterey County Weekly ^ | Feb 16, 2023 | David Cortright
    On Feb. 15, 2003, in hundreds of cities across the world, some 10 million people demonstrated against the United States’ impending invasion of Iraq. By many accounts, it was the largest single day of anti-war protest in history. New York Times reporter Patrick Tyler wrote that the huge anti-war demonstrations were indications of “two superpowers on the planet: the United States and world public opinion.” Yet this vast mobilization was unable to halt the march to war. Some believe the protests had no influence, but this is shortsighted. The movement in fact had significant impacts in the U.S. and internationally,...

    A very high profile anti-Capitalist from Canada named Naomi Klein has been invited by Pope Francis to join forces with Climate Change activist and senior aide to the Pope, Cardinal Peter Turkson. Together they will lead a prominent conference on the environment with churchmen, scientists, and activists. The conference will exclude climate change doubters and moderates. The Pope had walked back some of his comments on the economy which were anti-Capitalist but Klein says he got it right the first time – we need to overturn Capitalism. Klein spoke at Occupy Wall Street, is, according to the guardian, is a...

    When Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine on February 24th, it caused a lot of problems for voices on the right and the left. Putin has a lot of fans in both corners, and these fans had spent years portraying him as a tactical genius, bamboozling us all with his four-dimensional chess moves. Right up until February 23rd, these Putin stans had been assuring us that Putin would never do something as dumb as launch a full-scale invasion of a sovereign democracy. Ever since then, the right have been able to change gears on Putin fairly seamlessly. This is WAR, and...

Russian authorities arrested over 1,700 individuals Thursday as citizens took to the streets of Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities to denounce the invasion of Ukraine and demand an end to hostilities, according to OVD Info, an independent organization monitoring political persecutions.

    Authorities in Russia are acting quickly to breakup widespread protests against President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.Thousands of protesters have been seen in Moscow following Russia’s offensive against Ukraine, with smaller protests springing up in other cities across the country. Russian state media warned citizens that those who participate in unsanctioned protests will be “arrested and brought to responsibility.”About 1,000 people at this anti war protest right now. These are taking away protesters indiscriminately.

    The day after the Charlottesville City Council passed a resolution calling on the federal government to end all its wars and avoid starting a new one with Iran, the move has drawn attention from abroad. One arm of Iran’s state-owned media, PressTV, is reporting the council’s latest foray into foreign policy through an interview with David Swanson, the Charlottesville peace activist who helped push the resolution.
