The great Tom Woods joins Scott to discuss the war state and Trump’s bombing of Syria. Woods begins by going back to the founding and shows that even in the years immediately following the ratification of the Constitution, there was grave concern about the scope of national powers. The two then turn the clock forward and consider the disaster of the military industrial complex and the other “privatized” government industries. Scott and Tom then discuss the War Powers Act and the AUMF and the consequences they’ve had for U.S. foreign policy.
