On November 30, 2016, presumably right at the stroke of midnight, Google Inc. unpersoned CounterPunch. They didn’t send out a press release or anything. They just quietly removed it from the Google News aggregator. Not very many people noticed. This happened just as the “fake news” hysteria was being unleashed by the corporate media, right… Read More Who’s Afraid of Corporate COINTELPRO?
In terms of twisting the English language into a ludicrous Orwellian mockery of itself in order to short circuit critical thinking, this has been a particularly good week. My favorite part so far has been the part where respectable leftists writers have been arguing that the already arbitrary application of the label “terrorist” should now… Read More The Ever More Orwellian Definition of Terrorism

In terms of emotionally manipulating people (and especially any heretofore wayward members of the American “left”) into forming a mindless, hysterical mob and running around like headless chickens branding anyone who didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton a goose-stepping Nazi, this past week… Read More A De-Putin-Nazification of America Update
So here it is, mid-September, and it looks like Trump is still in this thing. Which is pretty amazing when you think about it. Despite the Hitlerization of this clown by more or less every major organ of the mainstream media throughout the spring, and his Russification throughout the summer, and his racism, narcissism, and… Read More The Rise and Fall of the Trumpian Reich
All right, much as we hate to do it, we’re going to interrupt our series on Herding your Critics into Fake Communities and Wasting their Time to repost another sarcastic little piece our disobedient and disrespectful employee, CJ Hopkins, slipped into CounterPunch back on May 4. We weren’t going to run this one here at… Read More Coming this Summer … Revenge of the Bride of Sophie’s Choice
