“It’s my understanding that a guy can go out there and I mean, he can fall into a black hole,” Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr said of drivers getting entangled financially. “You know, we’ve had a lot of issues with Brookside.” Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway said the same. “We get calls about Brookside quite regularly because they really go outside their jurisdiction to stop people,” Pettway said. “Most of the time people get stopped, they’re going to get a ticket. And they’re saying they were nowhere near Brookside.” Police stops soared between 2018 and 2020. Fines...

“I Hold It That A Little Rebellion Now And Then Is A Good Thing”

2022 01 06 07 26

“This uneasiness has produced acts absolutely unjustifiable,” Jefferson wrote, “but I hope they will provoke no severities from their governments.” He didn’t approve of the insurrection, but he feared how the authorities might respond. “Unsuccessful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them,” a fact that “should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much.” Were insurrections like this one a threat to democracy? No, they were a concomitant of democracy....

The Human Under the Numbers

sadako hospital 1955 noretouch

The story of Anne Frank is tragic. If not for the words that she wrote in her diary, she would be a digit of history. Her diary is relatable, and the thoughts that collected inside her being during a horrible time in history gives the reader an idea of who she was. She is immortalized because of the little things that she wrote, not because of any great deeds recorded by others. As a victim of tyranny she is remembered as an innocent murdered. She is a story found inside the numbers. Thanks to her diary, we have a human figure to know and mourn, despite the mechanized bureaucratic...

Matt Taibbi: The Youtube Ban Is Un-American, Wrong And Will Backfire

2020 12 12 07 22

"There’s no such thing as a technocratic approach to truth. There are official truths, but those are political rather than scientific determinations, and therefore almost always wrong on some level. The people who created the American free press understood this, even knowing the tendency of newspapers to be idiotic and full of lies. They weighed that against the larger potential evil of a despotic government that relies upon what Thomas Jefferson called a “standing army of newswriters” ready to print whatever ministers want, “without any regard for truth.” We allow freedom of religion not...

Cop Kills Woman

Matt Agorist on the murder of Atatiana Jefferson: On the night of October 12, 2019, Atatiana Jefferson, 28, had committed no crime, had harmed no one, and was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew when she heard a noise in the backyard and went to investigate. As Jefferson walked to the window to see who the prowler was, the prowler opened fire and murdered her inside her home. Because this prowler wears a badge, however, instead of investigating a murder, the police department conducted damage control by assassinating Jefferson’s character before arresting Fort Worth police...

Year Zero: No More Compromise

In Episode 59 Tommy explores the idea that there is no true "Left" in America. He contends there is a "Left" that is growing and underrepresented in the narrative. But the "Left" is not what you might expect. Listen to Year Zero Here

Year Zero: Liberty at Home or Life Abroad

In Episode 52, with the annual celebrations of Independence Day, Tommy looks at the American Revolution. When constricting the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson set an extremely high bar for the state to live up to. 13 years later yet another bar was set with the ratification of the constitution. Despite the romanticized view of the past every president and Congress since has fallen miserably short of the goals set by the promises of these documents. And in the 1900's these goals and promises were abandoned altogether for the riches and dominance that empire promises. Listen to...
