COI #193: Some Accountability – But Mostly Impunity – For US Law Enforcement

coi193a

On COI #193 Kyle Anzalone discusses several examples of American police abusing, even killing, citizens and covering up the crimes. Police rarely face criminal charges – or any consequences – for misconduct on the clock. However, with growing scrutiny of the broken criminal justice system, some officers have faced accountability.  Kyle breaks down the acquittal of Andrew Coffee IV and how it compares with the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. While other men were acquitted on the grounds of self-defense, the cases are very different. Coffee was charged for murdering his girlfriend, who was actually...

Foreign Actors Behind the Revolutionary Curtain

Libertarians are quick to support revolutions, especially the American Revolution, as popular uprisings against a tyrannical regime. It is a narrative that allows one to believe that certain political movements are on the “right side of history." They are often rare and can be appropriate responses to improper behavior by the state, but make no mistake, revolutions are not “popular." Revolutions do not just occur anytime a state behaves in a tyrannical or authoritarian way towards its populace. If this was the case, revolts would be happening essentially every day. Plenty of authoritarian...

The War in Afghanistan Should Make You Reconsider Military Enlistment

Though the war in Afghanistan is over, its grim history is filled with hard truths about what it really means to serve in the American military. Those truths are particularly relevant to anyone contemplating enlistment or commissioning in the armed forces. With that in mind, here’s a warning label informed by the grim lessons of Operation Enduring Freedom—the failed and futile 20-year war in Afghanistan. You Could Lose Your Life Or Limbs In a War That Accomplishes Nothing After 9/11, the U.S. government was right to lash out at Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. However, that mission was largely...

It’s Time to Bring Our Troops Home

original both shareimage

“Let us resolve that never again will we send the precious young blood of this country to die trying to prop up a corrupt military dictatorship abroad. This is also the time to turn away from excessive preoccupation overseas to the rebuilding of our own nation. America must be restored to a proper role in the world. But we can do that only through the recovery of confidence in ourselves…together we will call America home to the ideals that nourished us from the beginning.”—George S. McGovern, former Senator and presidential candidate It’s time to bring all our troops home. Bring them home...

The Phony Threat of Chinese Dominance

pexels suzy hazelwood 1098526

While the US has its problems, future global Chinese supremacy won’t be one. Far from being in a position of overwhelming strength, China and its Communist leadership face imminent multifront domestic crises that will threaten the existence not only of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) but the existence of the Chinese state as a unified whole. Further, there are several insurmountable obstacles to it seriously disturbing core US interests or expanding its influence much beyond its own coasts before this happens. First, China’s geography is terrible if projecting power is a state aim....

Next on the Agenda: War With China

24489164018 c10bc1f4e4 k

In 2014, Lew Rockwell wrote, “Clearly the empire is targeting China...The U.S. seeks to encircle China and make it bow down before the hegemon. The increasing prosperity and freedom of China threatens the empire’s self-image.” America’s new Cold War with China is a bi-partisan imperial project. In 2011, former President Barack Obama began it in earnest, dubbing it the “Asia Pivot.” The ‘pivot’ entails surrounding China with hundreds of bases and shifting two thirds of all U.S. naval and air forces to the Asia-Pacific, the greatest military buildup since World War II. Putative outsider...
