2¾ Cheers for the New Quincy Institute

What if George Soros and Charles Koch teamed up to do a thing? Sounds pretty scary so far. What if the project was to build a new antiwar think tank in Washington with the financial backing to make a serious mark? Does that sound even scarier? It shouldn’t. The reasons why are Trita Parsi, Andrew … Continue reading “2¾ Cheers for the New Quincy Institute” Now What?

The question, “Now what?” seems appropriate today. First of all, R.I.P. Justin Raimondo. As Tom Woods said, Justin was the soul of this site.

Is Medea Benjamin Naive or Just Confused?

Finding Ways to Stay in Iraq

Those who bought into the slogans "Hope" and "Change" last fall should have read the fine print. We were warned. Over and over during the campaign for the presidency Barack Obama made it clear that "withdrawal" from Iraq on his flexible 16-month timetable meant only the removal of "combat forces."
