5/16/22 Ted Snider: Did the CIA Oust Imran Khan?

 Download Episode. Scott is joined by Ted Snider to discuss the removal of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. Khan’s government announced in June of 2021 that Pakistan would no longer host any American military bases. Then, earlier this year, Khan was forced out by a vote of no confidence.

He shares what he’s found with Scott.    Discussed on the show: “Why Imran Khan’s coup theory is so...

Iran Sells Oil to Venezuela as Washington’s Negotiations with Caracas and Tehran Appear Frozen

168909117

Venezuela has begun importing heavy crude from Iran as the White House maintains severe economic sanctions on both countries. While the Biden administration has sought to increase ties with Tehran and Caracas, recent development suggests that a deal with either government is unlikely.  Documents from Venezuela’s state oil company show that 200,000 barrels of Iranian heavy crude oil arrived in mid-April. A second shipment - double in size - is currently being discharged at the Jose port. Iran is also delivering diluting agents to Venezuela, helping Caracas access its reserves.  The...

Adam Kinzinger Executes Neocon Vision for Ukraine

capture

As the war in Ukraine approaches its tenth week, the steady flow of ominous headlines has grown to a floodwater deluge. Dissenting observers are made to watch, seemingly helpless, as the broader levy of sanity threatens to break, unleashing a torrent of death and destruction across Eastern Europe, and likely, the globe. Leading the bad news cycle, on Sunday, May 1, Congressman Adam Kinzinger proposed a new Authorization of Use of Military Force (AUMF) in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation, if passed, would allow President Joe Biden to deploy American forces to restore “the...

Elon Musk, Twitter, and the ‘Ministry of Truth’

header essay 1984 19561

Just last week, I finally got around with starting to read Crime and Punishment, Fyodr Dostoevsky’s famous novel about a Saint-Peterburg student’s murder of an old lady pawnbroker. The murderer and book’s main character, Rodion Raskolnikov, got the idea from a fellow student whom he overheard saying at a local eating establishment: “On the one hand, you have a nasty, stupid, worthless, meaningless, sick old woman who’s no use to anyone. […] On the other hand, you have young fresh energies that are going to waste for want of backing. […] If one were to kill her and take her money, in order...

It’s Time We Get Answers About the FBI’s Involvement In the OKC Bombing

This past week marked the 27th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. As the worst terrorist act committed on U.S. soil at the time, we all know the reported facts of the horrific event well: a 27-year-old Desert Storm-vet, Timothy McVeigh, acting with minimal help from Terry Nichols and Michael Fortier, detonated a 7,000-pound fertilizer bomb from a parked Ryder truck outside the federal Alfred P. Murrah building, killing 168 people, 19 of them children. Two years later, in 1997, McVeigh was convicted of "Using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death," among other federal...

Non-Interventionism In the Only Sensible Path Forward

ukraine 7052326 1280

Libertarians, Liberty-wing Republicans, and other opponents of non-defensive wars are popularly misconceived to have an “every man for himself” approach to both our economic views and foreign policy positions. Of course, this is patently false in both cases, but this piece will focus on clarifying the latter. Local Libertarian activist Roy Minet, who has also written about the former, touched on the popular myth of isolationism in his 2014 LNP article “Defense should mean defense only." “Apparently, they call anyone who doesn’t support their various military interventions around the globe...

4/22/22 William Arkin on Russia’s Failures in Ukraine

Download Episode. William Arkin joined Scott on yesterday's Antiwar Radio show to discuss the war in Ukraine. Arkin has spent the last two months following the war closely to try and get an accurate read on what’s happening on the ground. He shares his findings and latest analysis with Scott. Arkin believes that Russia’s military failures have exposed them as a paper tiger, invalidating all the money and resources that have been poured into NATO over the decades. At the same time, the absence of diplomacy and the apparent U.S. intentions to turn this conflict into a prolonged proxy war...

We Want YOU to Keep The War Going

mal

The American people are allowing their blood soaked rulers in Washington to callously prolong the war in Ukraine. The complicit media  has propagandized and lied the American people into insisting Washington double down on all their worst aggressions. And so continues the hawks’ reckless gamble on World War 3 to spite President Vladimir Putin and - once and for all - destroy Russia.  President Joe Biden’s administration and other hawks do not want the war in Ukraine to end. They are not alone, some NATO member states prefer to see the war drag on indefinitely as well. As Libertarian...
