"Could we discuss potential punishments?" asked the tall, middle-aged man identified as "Juror 25" during the voir dire for the trial of Matthew Townsend on a ludicrous felony charge of "witness intimidation." His supposed offense was to publish a well-reasoned and inoffensive Facebook post complaining about being arr... (more)
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”― George Orwell
Free speech is not for the faint of heart.
Nor is it for those who are easily offended, readily intimidated or who need everything wrapped in a neat and tidy bow. Free speech is often messy, foul-mouthed, obscene, intolerant, undignified, insensitive, cantankerous, bawdy and volatile.
While free speech can also be tender, tolerant... (more)
Since 1988, Donald Trump has been discussed as a potential United States presidential candidate, but when he officially announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015 the mainstream media refused to believe it. Over the next many months, Donald Trump would be attacked and criticized by the media -- but were these criticisms legitimate? What is the Untruth About Don... (more)
Those looking to "#resistcapitalism" might find the socialist utopia they're looking for by joining ISIS, at least according to radical Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary, currently operating out of London.
"Everyone has free food, clothing and shelter," he tells his students during a sermon... (more)
While the liberal media is working on damage limitation as the fairy dust on its childlike delusions is blown away by the harsh winds of reality in places like Cologne, it is time for European nations to ask themselves whether they believe in their own right to exist.
Just because post-WWII European liberals have been culturally neutered doesn’t mean that the armies of young men pouring in from Arab countries and sub-Saharan Africa have been, too.
"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the fi... (more)
As dozens of sexual assaults by Syrian refugees on New Years Eve rock the country of Germany, Barack Obama moves forward on his gun control executive action. Stefan Molyneux joins Infowars to speak with Alex Jones about the hidden truth about the Crusades, the history of slavery, gun control, the addiction to power and the importation of a true rape culture.
President Obama teared up while making an "emotional plea" for more gun control earlier today.
“Our unalienable right to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness - those rights were stripped from college kids in Blacksburg and Santa Barbara and from high schoolers in Columbine, and from first graders in Newtown - first graders - and from ... (more)
As armed Americans take a stand against a tyrannical federal government near Burns, Oregon, the timid amongst the right and the totalitarian amongst the left offer a resounding chorus: Nothing good can come of this.
I disagree. If nothing else, the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters by the Bundy lead militia serves as a much needed symbol for the silent majority of the nation – a silent majority that is fed up with the encroachment on our liberti... (more)
Mass executions at home, war abroad – Saudi Arabia tries to kill its way out of adversity. As the new year rolled in around the world, Saudi Arabia was already getting off to a bad start. The Western media published muted reports of a mass execution of some 47 prisoners alleged to be "terrorists," though the most prominent among them was clearly a political leader, not a militant.
The US State Department's Voice of America service, sourcing AP, AFP, and Reuters reports, would clai... (more)
In our politically correct society, an honest discussion about crime and the causes of criminality is often prevented by emotional hysteria. What are the indicators and predictors of criminality? Is crime simply a natural byproduct of poverty? Does the prevalence of single motherhood impact criminality? Do crime rates differ by race/ethnicity? What does the Wa... (more)
The most revealing film I've seen this year is "The Stanford Prison Experiment." I highly recommend that you see it. Everyone should. If we took its lessons seriously, we would rethink more than just our prison system. We would rethink the whole system of government that has vexed humanity for thousands of years.
If I had learned about this experiment in college, I had since forgotten about it. The experiment demonstrates the exte... (more)
Progressives are often good people with good intentions. However, modern Progressivism has evolved into something so shapeless and amorphous as to amount to little more than a belief in “things that sound nice.” Mainstream Progressives have done an abysmal job of outlining precisely, in their view, the proper role of government and what (if any) limiting principle(s) apply to the state as a whole.
The all-seeing, all-knowing, all-wise U.S. government is concerned about many things it has no business being concerned about. But there are still many things about which the government remains unconcerned.
Here are fifty things the government doesn't care if you do even though they are dangerous, risky, addictive, immoral, or hazardous to your health.
The government doesn't care if you take aspirin even though hundreds die every year from adverse reactions to aspir
Perhaps the greatest irony of this past year has been the mind numbing and irrational anti-free speech wave that swept across facets of so-called "liberal" America.
This regressive movement was most readily apparent on college campuses, where hordes of sheltered and emotionally stunted students demanded restrictions on free speech in order to prevent themselves from being offended by an ever expanding list of unhappy thoughts and words. However, what is far more troubling, albeit ... (more)
In recent months, especially following the Paris attacks, US officials have been publicizing their efforts to fight ISIS. As cable news highlights ISIS atrocities, and a variety of new anti-terrorism measures are put forward, another war is being waged from the highest levels of government. Though it is being kept quiet, US officials are escalating their campaign against the forces who have been fighting ISIS and scoring real victories.
