Devil’s Advocate: How Turkey Is Seeking to Save Its Syrian Proxies

vladimir putin and recep tayyip erdoğan (2015 06 13) 3

On July 28, the U.S. Treasury Department, vowing to keep pursuing accountability for perpetrators of human rights violations in the country, imposed sanctions on the Turkish-backed Ahrar Al-Sharqia, a faction in the Syrian Civil war, that committed the outrageous murder of Kurdish female politician Hevrin Khalaf in 2019. The decision, made at the insistence of the Biden administration which can hardly be considered friendly towards Turkey, has made Ankara worry for the fate of its allies in northwestern Syria. Realizing a potential threat of further sanctions, Ankara was quick to take...

Double Standard Drones

On August 29, 2021, the U.S. forces in Afghanistan conducted an airstrike against an ISIS-K leader in Kabul. Tensions had been running high throughout the city, as just several days ago a deadly terrorist attack was carried out that killed over 70 people, including Afghanistan civilians and U.S. service members. A sigh of relief was felt across the country after the strike, bringing the knowledge that we were fighting back against those who were trying to use terrorism as innocent targets. Even though the U.S. was pulling out of Afghanistan, we were still bringing the fight to them!...

The War on Drugs for Her

She had just turned fifteen. She was a good girl, though some of her friends had a wilder side. They did like to party. She was excited to attend a music festival, a large one geared to people under eighteen. While she was there the police were conducting an operation to curb the use of recreational drugs. Twenty or so teenagers, including herself, had been taken almost at random by the police officers. It was a hot day, so she had worn very little. As she was taken away she was roughly handled. The police officers accused her of being in possession of drugs, a girl who had not even tried...

The Most Despicable Profession – Michael Huemer, Ph.D.

https://youtu.be/vrzreDsVgMI Excerpt from Knowledge, Reality, and Value: A Mostly Common Sense Guide to Philosophy by Michael Huemer, Ph.D. Credulity Humans are born credulous – we instinctively believe what people tell us, even with no corroboration. We are especially credulous about statistics or other information that sounds like objective facts. Unfortunately, we are not so scrupulous when it comes to accurately and non-misleadingly reporting facts. There is an enormous amount of disinformation in the world, particularly about politics and other matters of public interest. If the...

Don’t Draft Women (Or Men Either)

As in many previous years, this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is chock-full of terrible legislation slyly inserted for the purposes of concealing matters from the public. Both parties have been long guilty of this, with both groups using the NDAA to pass police state legislation increasing federal spying and law enforcement powers. All of the NDAA should be considered controversial, since so much of it is devoted to perpetuating the US’s aggressive, wasteful, and counterproductive efforts at global hegemony. But the NDAA also often contains domestic innovations like...

He Thought I Was an Undercover Fed

Bovard1

From the early 1990s onward, I was exposing FBI crimes, lies, and cover-ups. FBI director Louis Freeh publicly denounced me after I wrote a Wall Street Journal piece on the FBI’s killing of an innocent mother holding her baby at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. I continued hammering FBI abuses in the Journal, Playboy, American Spectator, and other publications. One of the FBI’s biggest blunders occurred when it falsely accused a hapless security guard of masterminding an explosion at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Richard Jewell heroically saved lives by detecting and removing a pipe bomb before it...

Cop Arrested After Beating, Leaving Boot Marks on Face of Teen Over a Speeding Ticket

Body camera footage released in April highlighted the gang mentality of many police officers as it showed them violently beating a 17-year-old boy over a traffic stop “like a pack of wolves.” It also illustrates how far cops will go to enforce a speeding violation. But this story does have a silver lining as the two cops responsible for the beating have been indicted. San Joaquin County district attorney Tori Verber Salazar announced that former Stockton Police Department officers Michael Stiles and Omar Villapudua were each indicted on felony counts of assault by a public officer and...

COI #165: AUKUS Alliance Escalates Hostilities with China and Enrages France

coi165

On COI #165, Connor Freeman – writer at the Libertarian Institute – returns to the show to discuss a newly formed anti-China alliance dubbed AUKUS (Australia, the UK, and the US). The pact will provide Australia with nuclear-powered submarines and allows the US to deploy more military assets in Australian territory. The agreement struck a nerve with Paris, as it effectively killed a $66 billion shipbuilding deal for French diesel subs. Even more outraged was China, as the new alliance further polarizes the world between the US and the Asian superpower. Odysee Rumble  Donate LBRY Credits...

In mid-May, news broke of a disturbing incident at Bucknell University: Outlets across the country reported that, on the eve of final exams, a mob of 15 to 20 intolerant male students had victimized the school’s LGBTQ community via an attack on a residence hall established as a “safe space” for community members. The intruders were members of a former Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity chapter that was shut down in 2019 over hazing violations. Before hosting the “Fran’s House” LGBTQ residential group, the building at the center of the disturbance was TKE’s decades-long home at Bucknell....

Derek Harris is an honorably discharged veteran who put his life on the line for his country in Operation Desert Storm. His years of service to his country were but dust in the wind, however, to the state who threw him in a cage for the rest of his life for selling less than a gram of weed to an undercover cop. After rotting behind bars for more than a decade, Harris has finally gotten some good news as the drug war comes crumbling down. According to his attorney, Harris was resentenced to time served and will soon be released. Prosecutors in Vermilion Parish agreed to release Harris from...
