Whenever one investigates a "think tank," "study group," "not-for-profit," "non-governmental organization," or other such meddlesome troublemakers it needs to start with who rather than what. The people involved make the difference betwixt a mere charity and a nefarious character. As will be … Continue reading "Warmongers 101 – Who Is the Institute for the Study of War?"

Trouncing Big Government with Shaun Thompson on Chicago Radio

Shaun Thompson and I had a rollicking chat tonight on Chicago’s The Answer AM 560, making it hot for corrupt politicians from both parties.

Whacking Political Rascals on the Brian Wilson Podcast

Talk Show Legend Brian Wilson and I had fun bantering about the latest damn outrages from Washington and beyond. Commenting on Biden’s classified documents scandal, I groused,  “Following this scandal is kind of frustrating, because it’s like watching the Superbowl with a 30-day delay and a fuzzy video feed.” Here’s the link to the Apple […]

What Can the United States Bring to the Peace Table for Ukraine?

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has just issued its 2023 Doomsday Clock statement, calling this "a time of unprecedented danger."

NATO’s Phony (and Dangerous) Nonbelligerent Status Regarding the Ukraine War

U.S. leaders and their media allies have fostered numerous, self-serving myths about the war in Ukraine. One myth is that Russia’s February 2022 invasion of Ukraine was entirely unprovoked, since NATO’s expansion to Russia’s border was not a hostile act.

Let the Weapons Flow and the Body Count Grow

Reprinted from Bracing Views with the author’s permission. Two articles I read Monday are typical of polarized, indeed antithetical, views on the Russia-Ukraine War. At the British Guardian, Simon Tisdall says this is Europe’s moment to step up and support Ukraine in a righteous war against Putin. He concludes, with passion: Zelenskiy is right. Risk-averse … Continue reading "Let the Weapons Flow and the Body Count Grow"

In Venezuela, the US Recognizes a Nonexistent Government

In a piece of bizarre political theater, the US now officially recognizes a government in Venezuela that does not exist. Despite the termination of the government recognized by the US, State Department spokesman Ned Price assured a press briefing that "our approach has not changed."
