  • Westphalian Logic and Geopolitical Prudence in the Nuclear Age
    par Richard Falk le 20/05/2022 à 9:05

    What tends to be excluded from almost all presentations of the Ukrainian struggle is the U.S. Government policy agenda of inflicting a humiliating defeat on Russia which is at once related to the defense of Ukraine yet quite separate from it in significant respects. This agenda replicates Cold War […]

  • Roaming Charges: Search, Destroy and Replace
    par Jeffrey St. Clair le 20/05/2022 à 9:00

    The Buffalo shooting will be used to increase funding for police–the same police who didn't stop the racist shooter, who across the country have aligned themselves with white supremacist movements and who regularly shoot young blacks suspected of committing minor offenses like jaywalking or […]

  • Entering the Season of Death at the Border
    par Todd Miller le 20/05/2022 à 8:59

    I’ve been seeing people come out of the desert borderlands for two decades now, and it is startling every time. I couldn’t get that man’s desperate face and lunging limp out of my mind. The season of death in the borderlands had now arrived, as it does every year. More The post […]

  • Beyond the Crystal Ball & Unmentionable Fascism: Dark Predictions, Human Agency, and a Beautiful Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights
    par Paul Street le 20/05/2022 à 8:58

    Real resisters and revolutionaries calculate and plan, but they aren’t about the crystal ball. They aren’t about the betting odds. They are about human agency and revolutionary praxis to change the odds for the better. The Ugly Foreseeable: Six Dark Predictions It shouldn’t be so […]

  • Third Party Blues
    par Eve Ottenberg le 20/05/2022 à 8:58

    If you cringe in horror at the prospect, two years hence, of a Trump versus Biden presidential race, you are not alone. But it looms as a real possibility: two very aged men who should have the decency to retire from public life, having contributed so much to making it an absolute mess. More The […]

  • Who Dropped the Rain Bomb on Durban Last Month? And Will They Pay Climate Reparations?
    par Patrick Bond - Des D’Sa le 20/05/2022 à 8:57

    The third-largest city in South Africa, Durban, has had a hellish month. The climate catastrophe witnessed in the city and surrounding areas left terrible wounds that residents here have not yet recovered from. The 350 mm (14 inches) of rain that pounded many areas of the province in a 24-hour […]

  • Post Left Whitewashing of Tucker Carlson’s Racism Uses MSNBC Playbook
    par Eoin Higgins le 20/05/2022 à 8:57

    Allies of Tucker Carlson are working hard to distract the public from the Fox News host’s culpability in spreading racist conspiracy theories, adopting the same tactics they sneer at from liberals. In the wake of the Buffalo massacre, where white supremacist Payton Gendron murdered 10 people […]

  • The Biomass Peril
    par Robert Hunziker le 20/05/2022 à 8:56

    Woody biomass, or burning trees to produce renewable energy, is spreading beyond the shores of Europe, where it’s wildly popular and outpacing solar and wind. It’s headed for Japan and South Korea, where subsidies for woody biomass displace funding for solar and wind. Umm, what’s […]

  • Is This the End of the French Project in Africa’s Sahel?
    par Vijay Prashad le 20/05/2022 à 8:53

    On May 15, 2022, the military junta in Mali announced that it would no longer be part of the G5 Sahel platform. The G5 Sahel was created in Nouakchott, Mauritania, in 2014, and brought together the governments of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger to collaborate over the deteriorating […]

  • Israel’s Killing Of Reporter Shireen Abu Akleh Reminds Me Of Mazen
    par Roxane Assaf-Lynn le 20/05/2022 à 8:53

    In Jehane Noujaim’s documentary “Control Room,” a daring indictment of embedded media at Central Command (CENTCOM) during the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, military spokesperson Marine Corps Lieutenant Josh Rushing has an epiphany. His moral compass is shaken when he recalls his own […]

  • Why Are Colombian Election Candidates Auditioning in Washington?
    par Roger Harris le 20/05/2022 à 8:51

    Staging a vice-presidential candidates debate in the runup to Colombia’s May 29th national elections was entirely appropriate. Nevertheless, the location of the event in Washington and its promotion by US-state functionaries requires some explanation. Because of its venue and sponsors, the […]

  • Tales from the Cryptic ‘60s: an Unauthorized Interview with Judy Gumbo
    par John Kendall Hawkins le 20/05/2022 à 8:50

    Judy Gumbo arrived at Berkeley, California from Canada in the mid-60s and engaged herself in the political antics of the Youth International Party, aka, the Yippies, through Stew Albert, her boyfriend and a Yippee leader. Judy was a kind of proto-feminist (in principle) and du jour lesbian; a […]

  • Why Are Colombian Election Candidates Auditioning in Washington?
    par Roger Harris le 20/05/2022 à 8:50

    Staging a vice-presidential candidates debate in the runup to Colombia’s May 29th national elections was entirely appropriate. Nevertheless, the location of the event in Washington and its promotion by US-state functionaries requires some explanation. Because of its venue and sponsors, the […]

  • A Civilization of Fragile Images
    par Evaggelos Vallianatos le 20/05/2022 à 8:50

    Olympeion: temple of the Olympian Zeus near the Acropolis of Athens. It took several centuries for the construction of the temple. The Roman Emperor Hadrian finished it in 131-132.

  • In a parallel universe, the pandemic would have been different
    par Bridget Meehan le 20/05/2022 à 8:50

    The dark spectre of the Covid pandemic has been with us for over two years now and the virus itself is always likely to be with us. Our systems and institutions are in turmoil, our economy, our schools, our hospitals, are still reeling from what has happened, still struggling to cope as the virus […]

  • At Home and Abroad, is America “Fake News?”
    par Dennis Fritz le 20/05/2022 à 8:50

    It was 4:00 AM and I couldn’t sleep. As news about the devastation of Ukraine from Russia continues, talking heads warn of Europe on the brink of war. My mind was ambushed by racing thoughts about our troubled world, and our divided nation’s place in it. What does America stand for? Are […]

  • How Media Reports of ‘Clashes’ Mislead Americans About Israeli-Palestinian Violence
    par Maha Nassar le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    Israeli police attacked mourners carrying the coffin of slain Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh on May 13, 2022, beating pallbearers with batons and kicking them when they fell to the ground. Yet those who skimmed the headlines of initial reports from several U.S. media outlets may […]

  • When the Shooting Ended
    par David Rovics le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    All over the US media there are discussions taking place, as one would expect, about the slaughter of 10 people in Buffalo, New York, by a young white supremacist in body armor with a rapid-fire weapon.  I have heard no discussion about the phenomenon of mass shootings in general in the US […]

  • ICE Probably Spied on You
    par Farrah Hassen le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    Growing up in the Southern California suburbs, government surveillance never worried me. But my Syrian-American parents were more cautious. They would often warn me against talking about politics over the phone — in case Big Brother was snooping. As a teenager, I dismissed their concerns. […]

  • England and the Lost Princess 
    par Peter Bach le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    It is one of those strange and heady days when you’re being driven towards New York, but the New York that you‘re being driven towards is not the one you love so much and lived in for five years, but a hamlet with a main road cutting through it like a vicar’s knife — not […]

  • Where are the Men? No More Bystander Boys in the Post-Roe Era
    par Robert Lipsyte le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    For 50 years now, people have told desperate, heart-breaking stories about what it was like to search for an abortion in the days before Roe v. Wade. These were invariably narratives of women in crisis. They sometimes involved brief discussions about economic inequality, police-state intrigue, and […]

  • We Need a Functional FCC
    par Julie Hollar le 20/05/2022 à 8:49

    Most Americans don’t think much about the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC. But if you watch TV, use the internet, or own a phone, it plays a major role in your life. The FCC regulates the airwaves, including the corporations that own your local TV and radio stations. And it plays an […]

  • I Ain’t Marching Anymore
    par Richard Moser le 20/05/2022 à 8:48

    Chris Lombardi’s book,  I Ain’t Marching Anymore: Dissenters, Deserters, and Objectors to America’s Wars, couldn’t be more on time. As the US ramps up its proxy war in Ukraine and paves the way for even wider conflict, Lombardi gives us the knowledge we need […]

  • Jerome Powell’s Fed in Two Frightening Charts
    par Pam Martens - Russ Martens le 20/05/2022 à 8:48

    The March 15-16 minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) of the Federal Reserve show that there was agreement, given “elevated inflation and tight labor market conditions,” that the Fed needed to take decisive action to shrink its balance sheet, with FOMC participants […]

  • Tucker Carlson’s “Great Replacement” Theory Derives from an American Nazi
    par Juan Cole le 20/05/2022 à 8:48

    Before a hate-filled 18-year-old murdered 10 and wounded 3 African Americans in Buffalo on May 14, he penned a rambling screed about replacement theory. The most common version of this whiny idea, imported from the more hysterical fringes of the French far right, holds that Jewish capitalists […]

  • It’s Time to Stop Profiteering at the Pump
    par Lindsay Owens Hebah Kassem le 20/05/2022 à 8:48

    Amid the ongoing atrocities in Ukraine, rising gas prices, and the existential threat of climate change, policymakers in Washington have a long list of crises to address. But there’s one step that could help mitigate all of them: reducing our dependence on oil — and the giant oil and […]

  • Taking Aim at Criminalizing Russia: Stephen Cohen Challenges A Rampant Mania
    par Michael Welton le 20/05/2022 à 8:47

    Bamboozling the public prepares them for bombing those we demonize On April 25, 2018 Stephen Cohen, unraveller of myths extraordinaire, wrote an article on “Criminalizing Russia” in The Nation (republished in War with Russia: from Putin to Ukraine to Trump an Russiagate [2022]). We are […]

  • Major Shift in National Wildfire Policy Needed
    par Adam Rissien le 20/05/2022 à 8:45

    Emphasis must be on protecting homes and communities while recognizing the crucial ecosystem benefits that fire provides The fires burning through northern New Mexico this past month redefine what we consider a normal spring. Pushed by relentless high winds and exacerbated by an ongoing, […]

  • The Eurasian Road to American Panarchy and the Agorist Path to Cold War Salvation
    par Nicky Reid le 20/05/2022 à 8:45

    “Morally, it is wrong to suppose the source of evil is outside oneself, that one is a vessel of holiness running over with virtue. Such a disposition is the best soil for a hateful and cruel fanaticism.” -Nikolai Berdyaev, The End of Our Time It could have been a beautiful nightmare. […]

  • Say No to Nuclear Power
    par Harvey Wasserman le 20/05/2022 à 8:41

    The nuclear power industry has been pushing the fantasy of yet another “renaissance” of nuclear power, based on the absurd idea that atomic reactors — which operate at 571 degrees Fahrenheit, produce substantial greenhouse gas emissions and, periodically, explosions — […]
