If you don't dig deep, Joe Biden appears to be governing as the most liberal president since Lyndon Johnson. But conservatives needn't worry. Biden is no progressive in centrist's clothing. True, the president's legislative agenda — after the coronavirus relief bill, which was undeniably progressive — would expand the social safety net, increase direct aid... Read More
A former employee is exposing one of the largest leftist book publishers in the world, Verso Books, as a dangerous work environment that systematically protects credibly accused rapists and sexual harassers while ignoring their accusers. Verso was founded in 1970 to specialize in promoting books inspired by the Frankfurt School, an influential line of leftist... Read More
In the intraparty Democratic war between progressive leftists and corporate centrists, each side speaks a different language. The two factions' takes on Joe Biden's first weeks as president starkly demonstrate that inability to communicate. Biden's base is his centrist supporters, those who backed him against Sen. Bernie Sanders during the primaries on the grounds that... Read More
Once again, the Democratic Party is asking progressives to vote for a presidential nominee who says he disagrees with it about every major issue. This is presented as an offer it cannot refuse. If it casts a protest vote for a third-party candidate like the unionist and environmentalist Howie Hawkins of the Green Party or... Read More
There is no room for progressives in the Democratic Party. No matter how many votes he or she gets, no progressive will be permitted to be the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. Progressives who try to work inside of, contribute to and support the Democratic Party have no real chance of moving its candidates... Read More

If you're a progressive voter, taking back control of the Democratic Party from the Democratic Leadership Council-Clinton-Biden centrist cabal is more important than defeating the incumbent....

Most Americans would like to see a humane and sensible foreign policy
I receive hundreds of emails each day, a volume that is not that unusual and is probably experienced also by many readers of this website. As I have been actively involved in the debate over national security policies since 2003, much of the material I receive is partisan in nature. It’s a regular smorgasbord but... Read More

Introduction Most Americans who know anything of Robert Lewis Dabney (1820-1898) know him only as the stern chaplain of General “Stonewall” Jackson and the author of a classic biography of the general. Yet, after the War Between the States Dabney became one of the most intransigent and impressive American critics of industrial capitalism of the... Read More
The president is an ardent progressive. This dastardly philosophy of government was brought into the American mainstream 100 years ago by a Republican, Theodore Roosevelt, and a Democrat, Woodrow Wilson. Its guiding principle is the belief that government -- not individuals -- is the chief engine of human progress. If that means government tearing down... Read More
How the Fox News pundit distorts the Progressive legacy.
When Glenn Beck wants to look serious he dons oversized horn-rimmed glasses and begins to lecture about Progressivism. In his telling, Progressives have contributed significantly to our latter-day political problems. He finds their ideology—combining massive bureaucracy with a command economy and certain forms of social engineering identified with eugenics—at the heart of today’s big-government liberalism....
