  • Venezuela's Maduro rooting for 'revolutionary friend' Sanders in U.S. campaign

    Venezuela's Maduro rooting for 'revolutionary friend' Sanders in U.S. campaign By Girish Gupta and Corina Pons CARACAS Venezuela's embattled president, Nicolas Maduro, said on Tuesday night he supported Bernie Sanders in the U.S. presidential race, adding that the candidate, who describes himself as a democratic socialist, would win if the vote were "free." Maduro, a socialist who sees himself as the political heir to his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, has long railed against the United States, blaming it for Venezuela's economic crisis and accusing Washington of attempting to topple him. "Bernie Sanders, our revolutionary friend, ought to win in the United...

  • Why do some socialists gravitate to evolutionary tactics over revolutionary tactics?

    08/10/2015 10:05:18 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 5 replies
    Why do some socialists gravitate to evolutionary tactics over revolutionary tactics? And why do some statists gravitate to progressivism instead? Evolutionary socialism or revolutionary socialism? That is the question. William James Ghent wrote a pamphlet titled "Reds Bring Reaction", which is a seemingly thin-veiled attack from one leftist on the rest of his fellow leftists. But within these pages lies the answer. Substantively the pamphlet is not what it seems to be. On page vii: "The revolutionary Communist, for all his stage-play, is a fanatic and a firebrand. So long as society insists upon keeping on hand such stores of...

    Europe is going to allow the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps to operate on its territory beginning in 2023. Making matters significantly worse from the Israeli and European Jewish perspective is Europe’s decision to allow the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, or the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps as it usually called in the West, broad latitude to operate within the EU starting in 2023. “The EU delisting of IRGC military organizations and personnel is tantamount to a green light for Iran-sponsored terrorism. Likewise, the EU delisting of IRGC financial, engineering, construction, energy and transport sector entities amounts...

    Ayers was one of three keynote speakers at a major conference organized by a consortium of schools of education at some 30 or so middle sized universities called The Renaissance Group. Ayers was given the only keynote luncheon speaker spot at the conference. The two morning keynote speakers were none other than Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education – and former foe of Ayers (and Obama) in the Chicago School Wars, and Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter. A major theme of the Renaissance organization is finding ways to educate the “New American Student,” as described in a statement published a...

    Many of you probably saw the network news reports about the United Airlines flight yesterday that returned to Dulles International airport when a crazed passenger yelling something about Jihad was restrained by other passengers. What you might have seen only on local but not on national broadcasts was a crazed Pennsylvania State University professor who began ranting loony left slogans on a flight from Nicaragua to Miami last weekend.  The Washington Post published a story about professor Karen Halnon whose rantings sounded too embarrassingly close to an MSNBC host for NBC Nightly News or the other national broadcasts to cover.

  • Illegal alien protesters jump on anti-cop bandwagon, say police

    01/05/2015 3:08:57 PM PST · by dontreadthis · 20 replies ^ | January 4, 2015 | Jim Kouri
    Some illegal alien activists, who are seeking full and unconditional amnesty from President Barack Obama instead of what they see as an incremental "reform policy," are now participating in protest rallies and demonstrations holding placards and signs that read more like threats than petitions for immigration reform. In fact, some are threatening to kill U.S. police officers if their demands are not met. Threats are nothing new, but what is new is the audacity displayed by protesters who have no fear of retribution by police or federal law enforcement agents and no fear of public outrage. Police officers are being...

    PHILADELPHIA — DINNER with your children in 19th-century America often required some self-control. Berry stains in your daughter’s hair? Good for her. Raccoon bites running up your boy’s arms? Bet he had an interesting day. As this year’s summer vacation begins, many parents contemplate how to rein in their kids. But there was a time when Americans pushed in the opposite direction, preserved in Mark Twain’s cat-swinging scamps. Parents back then encouraged kids to get some wildness out of their system, to express the republic’s revolutionary values. American children of the 19th century had a reputation. Returning British visitors reported...

    The failure of the Obamacare website took many by surprise. But Glenn Beck thought there’s at least one person who saw the trainwreck coming: President Obama. Beck called Obama a “Marxist revolutionary” and argued that he knew all along the health care site wasn’t ready and just didn’t care. New reports show that the White House knew the website would have a bumpy rollout three yeas ago, and Beck said the inability of the White House to handle this means that the health care information of anyone who signs up on the site is “not secure.” If Obama had done...

    Our courts have too often become expressions of the popular will. In ancient Athens, popular courts of paid jurors helped institutionalize fairness. If a troublemaker like Socrates was thought to be a danger to the popular will, then he was put on trial for inane charges like “corrupting the youth” or “introducing new gods.” Convicting gadflies would remind all Athenians of the dangers of questioning democratic majority sentiment. If Athenian families were angry that their sons had supposedly died unnecessarily in battle, then they might charge the generals with capital negligence — a warning to all commanders to watch their...

    The "resignation" shortly after midnight on Sunday morning of President Obama's "green jobs czar" Van Jones has generally been seen as a convenient holiday weekend move. By Friday, after White House Secretary Robert Gibbs would only say that he still was a part of the administration, it was obvious that Jones's resignation was only a matter of time. The 9/11 truther and other evidence accumulated by Glenn Beck, Gateway Pundit, and others was simply overwhelming. But it seems to me that it would have been more convenient had the White House waited until early Sunday afternoon to announce Jones's resignation....

The incident lasted about 15 to 20 minutes, he said.

    Gotta' see this. Here: and at the link above....Somebody is streaming a short video clip on "" of a recent live TV broadcast tirade during Venezuelan communist dictator Hugo Chavez' 'weekly address to the People', whereby the despot launches into a comical tirade against George Bush.You will hear el Presidente comically trying to grasp at such epithets as 'donkey', and 'little bird', and 'Mr. Danger', all spouted by Hugo in reference to George W.

    he Right-Wing Assault on the New York Times A major, very serious, and significant right-wing assault has been unleashed against the New York Times, a key pillar of the liberal imperialist establishment, and a frequent critic of Bush Administration policies.

Instead they come to spend their vacations working in the countryside under a blazing sun, eating rice and beans and sharing a room without air-conditioning or toilet with seven others. They are so-called revolutionary tourists who arrive each year from about 50 countries for a "total immersion" in one of the world's few remaining socialist countries. "I call it a revolutionary vacation. I dedicate my free time to doing something concrete for the Cuban...
