  1. I am distressed at the sad news about Justin Raimondo. In matters of war and peace, he was so right so often. For that (and many other reasons) antiwar.com has been a daily must read! It will continue to be, but, alas, will miss his sharp observations.

  2. Maybe I’ll suggest this elsewhere too, but it’d be cool if you guys would keep running some of his old columns, or do so from time to time. His stuff will continue to be relevant for years to come, and it’d be too sad to see his space on the homepage vacant.

    1. I was hoping they’d publish a book of his 3K aw articles. Maybe the book should including Chronicles, AmCon, and other sources as well.

      1. I’m not privy to the publishing plans of Antiwar.com or of Justin’s estate, but I’ll be surprised if one or more column collections don’t come out in book form over time.

  3. This is a terrible loss. I never met Raimondo, but I’ve read his articles since ~2000.

    I was hoping Keytruda would cure him.

    1. “All diseases can be cured, but not all people.” -a wise doctor.

      Somehow I guess we all thought he would just go on forever.

  4. No more Justin for me to stay up until midnight three nights a week, to get his latest offering. No more Justin makes the road to war smoother and easier to for the Boltons, Pompaeo’s and the rest of the war ILK to finagle some incident, set-up/scam or event to provoke some inan action, act, statement, policy or somesuch which leads expressly to hair trigger preparation. Or direct kinetic actions or exchainges leading directly to broad spectrum warfare over vast areas of land and sea. With tremendous loss of life on one or both sides. And possibly to the involvement of two or more nuclear bomb states: The nightmare scenario!

  5. “All this election stuff is just kabuki for the rubes in fly over land. There is one party and its the establishment party. [It] Doesn’t matter which party wins the election. What you’re going to get is more of the same because theyre both part of the same crew. Because if you are a member of the establishment and you propose anything more than five degrees rudder change from current policy, you instantly cease to be a member of the establishment.
