hypocrisy

The Harrowing Conversations

I sometimes coach (MMA etc) cops and military types. They know my opinion on certain things and I am not shy about expressing them. I at times feel a hypocrisy in working with them and have even mentioned that to them. Those few I work with, are "nice" men. Easy to get along with and just regular blokes. This past Thursday I had a heavier debate with one lad, he is ex military and now a cop. He said that it is important to have a strong government to rule over others. He says that disarmed populace is good because statistically Aus has very low stranger gun deaths (this may be due to...

COI #274: Why the Blob Backs Ukrainian Resistance and Israeli Apartheid

coi274

On COI #274, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover Tel Aviv’s murder of an internationally renowned journalist in the occupied West Bank as well as the latest Iran deal news. Kyle breaks down the Israeli occupation forces’ brutal killing of Al Jazeera’s Shireen Abu Akleh during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his apartheid regime attempted to blame the shooting on Palestinian gunmen, this absurd claim was immediately debunked by Israel’s top human rights organization. The bullet that was lodged in Abu Akleh’s brain was of a type used by the Israeli...

Facebook Lifts Ban on Calls for Violence (But Only Against Russians)

network logo connection facebook social network

Anyone following social media’s “Community Standards” knows how selectively they are enforced. Your humble writer was permanently banned from Twitter in 2019 for using a word to describe Sean Hannity’s mental slowness that is otherwise used perhaps millions of times per day by others with full impunity. Likewise, calls for violence against Sen. Rand Paul are also made routinely with impunity, in direct violation of the stated “Community Standards.” But even the hypocrisy and cynicism we have seen to this point by Big Social Media does not prepare one for a shocking development today,...

Veterans’ Group Responds to Liz Cheney: ‘Put Up or Shut Up’

Today Bring Our Troops Home, a national organization of Global War on Terror veterans, called on Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney to stop using the U.S. Constitution "as a media prop" and support congressional war powers as stated in Article I, Section 8. "It is time for Liz Cheney to either put up or shut up. In a weak attempt to defend herself after the Republican National Committee rebuked her, Cheney tried to claim she was standing on constitutional grounds. It is a lie," said Sgt. Dan McKnight, Chairman of Bring Our Troops Home. In reaction to the censure enacted Friday by the...

Is Virtue Signaling Vicious?

yardsign kindnessiseverything y9fu w7

Virtue signaling—the practice of highlighting what one takes to be one’s own moral superiority, often by loudly denouncing the character and comportment, including the speech, of other people—has become a dominant mode of rhetoric throughout social media and network television. Virtue theory, in contrast, is a teleological approach to normative morality concerned with how actions affect one’s soul or character. Historians of philosophy usually trace virtue theory to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, the first extant articulation of ideas such as that habits build character, and virtues...

9/9/21 Dave DeCamp on Developments in Afghanistan and Syria

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talked with Dave DeCamp. DeCamp gives an update on Afghanistan where the Taliban are attempting to form a government. Both Scott and DeCamp agree that the Taliban are likely to face difficulties as they try to govern the country, especially if they continue to only appoint Pashtun men to positions of power. Both point to the retaliatory drone strike that killed civilians in Kabul as a preview of what “over the horizon” operations will look like if Biden is serious about continuing them. Lastly, DeCamp provides an update on Syria where insiders appear to...

Eviction Moratorium: A Postmortem on Private Property

pexels kindel media 7579401

At the beseeching of congressional Democrats and the fanatical urgings of Nancy Pelosi, who called the extension of the federal eviction moratorium a “moral imperative,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a new nationwide ban on evictions for counties with heightened levels of coronavirus community transmission. This latest CDC order comes in spite of President Biden’s candid admission that “the bulk of the constitutional scholarship says it’s not likely to pass constitutional muster.” In The Ethics of Liberty, Murray Rothbard attests that the “right to...

COI#107 – Biden Hypocrisy: Demanding “Press Freedom” as Assange Rots

COI_Logo

On COI #107, Kyle and Will discuss the ongoing persecution of Julian Assange, who remains in a maximum security UK jail as the Joe Biden administration seeks to imprison him for the better part of 200 years. While Biden spoke of his appreciation for brave journalists and independent media on "World Press Freedom Day," his government continues to push for Assange's extradition, all for doing heroic, award-winning journalism. LAPD officers who coerced 13-year-old  Art Tobias into confessing to a shooting he didn't commit can now be sued, with a court ruling that qualified immunity does not...

We’re Here to Help

After a fiery year of cultural outrage against the state of policing in America, President Joe Biden's administration has announced that they have heard the pleas of the people. They will not stand by while a nefarious force maliciously targets the African American community. America needs to ban menthol cigarettes. Beyond the glaringly obvious problem of increasing the amount of dangerous police interactions, prohibition itself has a century long record of documented failure. Alcohol prohibition was short lived, the war on drugs has long been lost, and firearm involved violence is...

We May Be The Only Ones Left And That’s Frightening

I admit that I have a love/hate relationship with the concept of logical consistency. Hear me out please. First, my enemies don’t care if their arguments or policies possess logical consistency and, unfortunately, they tend to be the ones that control the reins of power that keep me in bondage to the State and their apparatchiks. Second, if I stay wed to the idea that I must adhere to logical consistency to be a legitimate voice for people who desire the same freedom from oppression that I do, it’s almost certain that I will only be doing the same thing over and over again expecting a...
