Support Your Local Police? posted 10/27/2015, 8:24 AM (Laurence M. Vance)
[Category: Commentary]
"Law and order" conservatives: When they are right, they are so right; but when they are wrong, they are so wrong.

They are right when they decry the militarization of local police. They are right to point out that the DOD 1033 program has transferred over $5 billion worth of military equipment from the Defense Department to local police forces. They are right to oppose more federal laws and mandates relating to local police. They are right to oppose a federal police "czar" like t

Irwin Schiff Was Right, Sept 29th 2001 posted 10/27/2015, 8:24 AM (InformationLiberation)

I watched this video Peter Schiff just posted of his father probably around 10 years ago. It was great at the time, but watching it again for the second time I find it even better. This man's way of cutting through bullsh*t is unparalleled.

Commissar Avakian's War Against Property Rights posted 10/26/2015, 8:04 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
Until April of this year, Christopher Penner was an entrepreneur. Now, despite the fact that he has never committed a crime against persons or property, he is an indentured servant.

For several years, Penner owned an embattled but marginally successful nightclub in Portland, Oregon. Today, according to his attorney, Jonathan Rademacher, Penner has a job managing a bar owned by somebody e

Presstitutes At Their Work posted 10/26/2015, 7:58 AM (Paul Craig Roberts)
[Category: Commentary]
The Western media has only two tools. One is the outrageous lie. This overused tool no longer works, except on dumbshit Americans.

The pinpoint accuracy of the Russian cruise missiles and air attacks has the Pentagon shaking in its boots. But according to the Western presstitutes the Russian missiles fell out of the sky over Iran and never made it to their ISIS targets.

According to the presstitute reports, the Russia air attacks have only killed civilians and blew

Remember When U.S. Officials Loved Assad? posted 10/23/2015, 6:39 AM (Jacob G. Hornberger)
[Category: Commentary]
President Obama and his mouthpieces in the mainstream press are outraged that Russian President Vladimir Putin is partnering with Syrian ruler Bashar al-Assad in the global war on terrorism. "Doesn't Putin realize that Assad is a dictator?" they exclaim. "Why doesn't Putin instead work with the U.S. to oust Assad from power? they ask.

Putin's position is that Assad is a great partner in the global war on terrorism and, therefore, should not be ousted from power. Putin and Assad sa

The Complexity of Violent Crime and The Role of State-Sanctioned Killing posted 10/23/2015, 6:39 AM (Ryan McMaken)
[Category: Commentary]
Violence, whether private sector (i.e., "crime" and non-state "terrorism") or government sector (war and police actions) are at the center of the debate about the state and its uses. Those who want stronger more centralized states will often argue that one of the main benefits of a stronger, more centralized state is its ability to punish or prevent acts of violence against those who are forced to pay for said state. "Yes, you're taxed," they'll say "but without us you'd be at the mercy of murde... (more)

Trump Vs. Jeb posted 10/23/2015, 6:37 AM (Justin Raimondo)
[Category: Commentary]
You may not like Donald Trump, for any one of a number of reasons, but anti-interventionists have to give him some credit for opening up the presidential debate to a critique of US foreign policy that hasn’t been seen or heard since the Ron Paul campaign. On Syria and on Iraq, he challenges the GOP/neoconservative orthodoxy in a way that Sen. Rand Paul hasn’t been able to do: indeed, one could argue that Trump has stolen Rand’s thunder – such as it is – in sounding the anti-interventionist note.... (more)

Thoughts On The American Empire and Its Decline posted 10/22/2015, 5:54 AM (Michael S. Rozeff)
[Category: Commentary]
The American Empire is deteriorating. It's been going downhill for decades. The descent is likely to continue, alleviated irregularly by policies that retard the decline or even reverse it for a time.

The general pattern set by declines of previous empires is occurring in this country. There have been at least 215 empires in the last 5,000 years. They have all declined and fallen, as will the American Empire.

The IDEA that there is an American Empire is not widely

The Assassination Complex posted 10/22/2015, 5:51 AM (The Intercept)
[Category: Commentary]
From his first days as commander in chief, the drone has been President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice, used by the military and the CIA to hunt down and kill the people his administration has deemed — through secretive processes, without indictment or trial — worthy of execution. There has been intense focus on the technology of remote killing, but that often serves as a surrogate for what should be a broader examination of the state’s power over life and death.... (more)


A Tax I Can Support posted 10/22/2015, 5:50 AM (Mises Institute)
[Category: Commentary]
Believe it or not, but there is a tax that I could support as libertarian. In fact, it's a tax I even would want to see. Because it fixes the problem of underfinanced government budgets and it also aligns the voting populace with the risk of "investing" in government. The incentive problems with government are basically resolved by replacing the current tax code mess with this one tax.... (more)

Do Blue Lives Matter More? posted 10/21/2015, 6:39 AM (Larken Rose)
[Category: Commentary]
The pattern of blacks being killed by American police gave rise to the "black lives matter" campaign, which gave rise to the "police lives matter" campaign in response. But there is a fundamental difference between the two. The implication in the first campaign is that black lives matter as much as any other lives (which of course is true), whereas many of those repeating the mantra of  "police lives matter" seem to believe that the lives of badge-wearers matter more than the lives of ordinary p...

The Meaning of Canada posted 10/21/2015, 6:38 AM (The Beacon)

It is not yet clear if the political sea change that has taken place in Canada will also be ideological. Under the leadership of Justin Trudeau, the 43-year old neophyte who has never held an executive post, the left-of-center Liberals have unseated Stephen Harper's Conservatives with an overwhelming parliamentary majority that no poll or commentator had predicted. They will have virtually a free hand to govern.

How The State's "Justice" System Cultivates Predators Like Ibn Hunter posted 10/20/2015, 6:41 AM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Commentary]
On occasion, government-employed police can solve a crime of violence – assuming that the act is captured on video, the offender makes a point of mugging for the camera in close-up, and the clip is disseminated to a large social media audience. Closing the case is even easier when the assailant is a veteran of the criminal... (more)

It happens every four years. Candidates for president issue books to sucker people to vote for them using the written word just like they sucker people every day to vote for them using the spoken word.

One of the latest "presidential" books is by retired neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. The book is his second salvo, since he authored with the same publisher last year One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future.

Ron Paul: Debt Ceiling Debate: Don’t Mention Warfare/Welfare State! posted 10/20/2015, 6:41 AM (Ron Paul)
[Category: Commentary]
The US Treasury's recent announcement that the government will reach the debt ceiling on November 3 means Congress will soon be debating raising the government's borrowing limit again. Any delay in, or opposition to, raising the debt ceiling will inevitably be met with hand-wringing over Congress' alleged irresponsibility. But the real irresponsible act would be for Congress to raise the debt ceiling.

Cutting up its credit card is the only way to make Congress reduce spending. Any

7 Ways Police Will Break The Law, Threaten, or Lie to You to Get What They Want posted 10/19/2015, 6:00 AM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Commentary]
Because of the Fifth Amendment, no one in the U.S. may legally be forced to testify against himself, and because of the Fourth Amendment, no one's records or belongings may legally be searched or seized without just cause. However, American police are trained to use methods of deception, intimidation and manipulation to circumvent these restrictions. In other words, cops routinely break the law--in letter and in spirit--in the name of enforcing the law. Several examples of this are widely known,... (more)


The New Cultural Marxism and the Infantilization of College Students posted 10/19/2015, 5:56 AM (Thomas DiLorenzo)
[Category: Commentary]
When socialism finally collapsed all around the world in the late '80s/early '90s the academic Marxists did not just throw in the towel and face reality.  Indeed, not one of them has ever apologized for providing intellectual support for some of the worst mass murderers in world history -- Stalin, Mao, Castro, and the rest of the communist/socialist gangsters.  Instead, they reinvented themselves in several different ways, including posing as "environmentalists," and as "cultural Marxists."

My father Irwin A. Schiff was born Feb. 23rd 1928, the 8th child and only son of Jewish immigrants, who had crossed the Atlantic twenty years earlier in search of freedom.

Russia and its President, Vladimir Putin, a little more than a year ago, in July 2014 were the focus of attention in Europe and North America, accused, without a shred of forensic evidence, of shooting down an unarmed civilian Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine. The Russians were deemed out to restore the Soviet Union with their agreement to the popular referendum of Crimean citizens to annex into the Russian Federation and not Ukraine. Western sanctions were being thrown at Russia by both ... (more)

Depending on one’s point of view, Bernie Sanders either held his own or boosted his chances against perceived front-runner Hillary Clinton in Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate. His message clearly resonated with the live audience, particularly his statements about raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour, global warming, and government-mandated paid childcare leave.

When I read that the report on the downing of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine was being put in the hands of the Dutch, I knew that there would be no investigation and no attention to the facts.

And there wasn’t.

Let's say you have a trade deal that completely eliminates 18,000 existing tariffs between 12 countries that are otherwise hectoring each other with punishing trade barriers.

Almost everyone believes that government is an essential institution, necessary to protect us from those threats we cannot counter on our own. But even if we accept that justification, it rarely describes what American government actually does, whether at the local, state, or federal level.

Much of the political thinking about violence in the United States comes from unfavorable comparisons between the United States and a series of cherry-picked countries with lower murder rates and with fewer guns per capita. We’ve all seen it many times. The United States, with a murder rate of approximately 5 per 100,000 is compared to a variety of Western and Central European countries (also sometimes Japan) with murder rates often below 1 per 100,000.

Meth is often the example prohibitionists pull out when someone points to an example like Portugal. “So you’d legalize meth, too?” But as the Economist piece suggests, meth is a product of prohibition (in this case alcohol, but also restrictions on amphetamines more generally), not an argument in favor it.
