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...

9/18/20 Joe Lauria: Day Nine of the Assange Extradition Hearing

Joe Lauria comments on the last few days of Julian Assange's extradition hearing. He notes a movement on the part of the prosecution away from their previous tack, which was to argue that Assange was not really a journalist, but actually engaging in hacking and intelligence himself. By establishing that, they may have been able to avoid the obvious problem that the prosecution of Assange could create a precedent for the prosecution of any news organization that published classified documents. The British prosecution may have realized that this strategy was not working because of the...

9/11/20 Clive Stafford Smith on Julian Assange’s Political Show Trial

Clive Stafford Smith, expert witness in Julian Assange's extradition hearing, talks about the outrageous scandal that is the U.S. government's attempted prosecution of Assange and Wikileaks. Smith begins by making the obvious point that as a recipient of classified leaks, and not a leaker himself, Assange is no different than any journalist who writes stories containing classified information. To prosecute Wikileaks, in other words, the government would have to admit that they could prosecute the New York Times and The Washington Post as well. The focus of Smith's testimony was on the...

Trump Hates Veterans

I don’t write as often as I should. Not as if my writing might change the world, but just purely from a therapeutic exercise. I have written 4 or 5 articles recently that I haven’t published. I can’t even entirely pinpoint the reason why. The last few days though have hit personally. The Veteran community is being dragged through the media for no reason other than political propaganda and gamesmanship. So disgusting is it that my simply pointing out the inherent hypocrisy in all of this to people online has resulted in my comments being deleted. As if, nope, not going to even have that...

Are We About To See A Troop Withdrawal From Iraq?

Hubris, hypocrisy, and sanctimony are all constants of U.S. foreign policy. All came together in George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. Most foreign policy analysts, other than the neoconservative war enthusiasts who dominated Bush administration decision-making, recognize that America’s unjustified aggression was a horrid bungle. The U.S. broke international law, vilified European allies, wrecked Iraq, triggered sectarian war, victimized religious minorities, and empowered Iran. The human toll was hideous: Washington’s war killed thousands of Americans, wounded tens of thousands of U.S....

Sleazy Republicans Headed By Liz Cheney Back Challenger To Congressman Thomas Massie – Get Burned

Perpetual war monger Liz Cheney has vowed to defeat Congressman Thomas Massie from Kentucky by actively donating to his challenger Tod McMurtry.  But, Massie has been publishing tweets from McMurtry which show support for Alt-right viewpoints on race which have embarrassed Cheney and forced her to withdraw support for McMurtry.. Cheney and other GOP supporters including the Republican Jewish Coalition have pulled support for McMurtry and requested refunds for their donations. On Saturday, Ms. Cheney said that she asked Mr. McMurtry’s campaign to return her contribution. “We as Republicans...

Plutocrats Laughing at the Plebes

What do bigshot bankers at Goldman Sachs have in common with such celebrities as Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Jamie Foxx, Swiss Beatz, Busta Rhymes, Kate Upton, and Kanye West? They’re among America’s rich and famous, an elite group noted for hypocrisy, for contributing to the moral decay of American society, for causing the socialist backlash of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and for resembling the proverbial fish that rots at the head, or more accurately, that rots on the West Coast and East Coast. The bankers and the celebrities also have Jho Low in common. Who’s that? Low is...

12/9/19 Bill Law on America’s Support For Tyranny Around the World

Bill Law talks about the need for Americans to support those in foreign countries peacefully demonstrating for political reform against oppressive regimes, and the hypocrisy surrounding America's so-called support for democracy. Really, says Law, our government and its allies support the regimes they like and overthrow the ones they don't, and call it "democracy" no matter what. Discussed on the show: "How the death of a president shed light on Egypt's brutal dictatorship" (Middle East Eye) "U.S. officials misled the public about the war in Afghanistan, confidential documents reveal"...
