Even the moderate Republicans were decent. But the neocons, from Gingrich to Boehner-Cantor, have been monsters. They even tried to prevent him from getting time to deliver his magnificent Farewell to Congress. Thank goodness that staffers, who love Ron as the people do, arranged for him to get his time without the leaders finding out. It’s a model of the Peaceful Libertarian Revolution: officials can’t count on their own troops.”Continue Reading Post a comment Today on the show: Ry Dawson on Hatteras Island, Shane and Amy Bugbee on their year at the wheel, and Gareth Porter on Petraeus’s many failures. 12-2 eastern scotthorton.orgnoagendastream.comContinue Reading Post a comment “So what is going on here? At the most basic level, Israel’s actions in Gaza are inextricably bound up with its efforts to create a Greater Israel that stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Despite the endless palaver about a two-state solution, the Palestinians are not going to get their own state, not least because the Netanyahu government is firmly opposed to it. The prime minister and his political allies are deeply committed to making the Occupied Territories a permanent part of Israel. To pull this off, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza will be forced to live in impoverished enclaves similar to the Bantustans in white-ruled South Africa. Israeli Jews understand this quite well: a recent survey found that 58 per cent of them believe Israel already practices apartheid against the Palestinians.” Second, a major turning point in Israel’s escalation was their assassination of a Hamas military commander who was the contact for Israeli and Egyptian officials attempting to negotiate a real and lasting peace. Really. The greater context of course is the One Gigantic Fact that somehow never seems to make it onto the TV: Gaza is occupied territory. This is no even fight. Gaza is a juvenile prison writ-large, Hamas just their Lord of the Flies-elected guards. The Israeli policy is to keep them hungry and desperate. They brag about it. The U.S.A. – AKA Barack Hussein Obama and his imperial legions – are 100% responsible for the attack and bloodbath. (Responsibility being a metaphysical concept, percentages don’t always have to add up perfectly.) And in related ultra depressing news, here’s Phil Weiss reporting on the opinions of the “Jewish Street
“ in Israel.
Update: Max Blumenthal explains it all:
“We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.”Continue Reading Post a commentContinue Reading Post a comment
“Nothing is deadlier than the pursuit of liberal ends through conservative means.”A couple of weeks ago I interviewed Anthony Gregory from the Independent Institute and the Future of Freedom Foundation about Rothbard’s great essay Left and Right: The Prospects for Liberty.
Within the United States, it was not so much communism, but progressivism, that wedged itself between Jeffersonian liberalism and Hamiltonian conservatism to become the middle-of-the-road American ideology, dedicated to libertarian goals through rightwing means. In Wilson, FDR, and even the modern Democratic Party, we see some libertarian rhetoric persist and most of the collectivist rhetoric is about elevating the common person, the worker, the poor and middle class, against the royalist rich. Yet a radical reading of American history demonstrates that just as in the rest of the world, the middle-of-the-road ideology yielded some of the worst authoritarianism and state violence ever perpetrated by the U.S. government. Those who could plausibly be called progressive Democrats (or modern liberals) were principally responsible for U.S. entry into World War I, World War II, the Cold War, Korea, and Vietnam. The American progressives and their New Deal and Great Society successors have had a dismal civil liberties record, from the Palmer Raids and Sedition Act to Japanese Internment and surveillance on the antiwar movement, from FDR banning marijuana to Obama’s kill list and indefinite detention. The corporate state was at least as much the darling of the middle-of-the-road progressives as it was the design of America’s more consistent conservative statists.Continue Reading Post a comment
