On the 18th Anniversary of the Invasion of Iraq For months before the Iraq War began, many wrote about the outrageous lies that were being told by the US government and its media sycophants to bring about this mass-murdering act of aggression.

On the Acquittal of the Murderous Thug Donald Trump Good things have happened in and come from America. But the idea so many of us had of America was lost long ago; it was never real. It was sham, and a hope, and a cheat, and a desire, and a dream of what could be but what never was.

House of Death: Trump's Endgame Plan to Kill Democracy If you are resting easy about the election result: don't. If you don't think Trump, McConnell and their party of rightwing extremists, who have already exerted every sinew in a bid to destroy the democratic process, won't keep on doing this until the very last second, with every weapon at their disposal, no matter what damage it will cause -- think again.

Brief note on a bleary post-election morning It should never have been this close, with an incumbency that has literally destroyed the economy and wilfully condemned tens of thousands of Americans to needless death.

Lords of Misrule: UK Elites and the Rise of Global Feudalism Until we stop treating these radical, death-dealing, society-wrecking extremists as normal politicians working within the system, we cannot effectively confront them and stop their depredations. They will continue to use the system itself to hollow out government and society until there is nothing left but their little clique.

The Surrendered Land: US Institutions Won't Fight for Democracy There are no institutional forces in American life that will stand up to a post-election power grab by Trump. They've already demonstrated this by failing to stand up to his egregious and brazen pre-election power-grabs, and his howlingly obvious, easily impeachable/prosecutable corruption.

Keepers of the Condor: US Role in Evil Network Shown in Soft Light The reason the US funded, armed, trained and protected the torture-lords of murderous right-wing dictatorships was, we're told here, is because poor little American leaders were traumatized by the Cuban Missile Crisis.

"Pre-Fascist" No Longer: Armed Trumpist Takeover of US Cities Begins Armed, unidentified federal forces are on the streets of Portland, abducting people off the streets and shoving them into rented vans. These federal goon squads are operating against the express wishes of the city's mayor and the state's governor.

Rapid Fire (UK edition): Send in the Clowns; BoJo in Whiteface; a Glimmer of Hope The people in the government today are acting with studied deliberation to advance the morally depraved agenda they have pursued (often openly) throughout their lives: to destroy the very notion of a greater common good and impose the rule of unaccountable elites.

No More Masks: Pandemic Bares the Rotten Core of Anglo-American Power Elites The vile, brutal inhumanity that lies at the core of the power systems in both the US and UK is being laid bare as never before by the pandemic. This is who they are. This is where we are. This is what we now can see: the corroded heart of the power system, and the sick, degraded character of the wretches in charge of it.

Death of a Nation The rule of law no longer prevails in the land; armed bands of extremists are roaming the streets of the nation, bellowing hatred and waiting for the order to escalate their lawless violence to the next level.

Malevolent Magic: The Voodoo of Exceptionalism is Killing Thousands in the US and UK Lock-down without mass testing will not quell the virus; "re-opening" without mass testing will lead swiftly to further disaster, to second and third waves that, absent a vaccine, could be equal to or worse than this initial tsunami.

Blowing in the Whirlwind: As Ye Sow, Joe Shall Ye Reap Both Biden and Trump will lumber around the country for months, dribbling out word salad to adoring supporters who don't have the slightest interest in what the doddering old men at the rostrum are saying. Both will spout inane and barely coherent platitudes without offering anything remotely resembling actual policies or programs or solutions to the myriad of dire crises we face.

Chill Factor: Wikileaks Trial is a Trump Travesty Aimed at Killing Truth If Assange is extradited to the US and convicted, then every single media outlet that publishes evidence of government wrongdoing will face the same threat. That is the point of his prosecution: to put a chill of fear into every journalist and editor who receives evidence of government crimes.

The Human Losers or the Husks in Power: Which Side Are You On? I think of my friend whenever I hear some bullshit-bloated politician or commentator dismissing the humanity and dignity of criminals and prisoners. I think of them, and I think of my friend, a parole-violating drug-addicted repeat-offending criminal of no use to the society he lived in and I know by God, I know! which side I'm on.

Manliness is a Warm Gun (Bang Bang Shoot Shoot): A colloquy with David French of the National Review You want to protect your family? Then fight against the gun culture, fight against right-wing hatred, fight against the dis-empowerment and despair you right-wing extremists have advanced for decades, fight against the militarization and brutalization of our whole society which both you and your fellow travelers, the "centrist," interventionist neoliberal Democrats, have imposed on our collapsing, corroded, corrupted land.
