COI #232: Biden Plunders Afghanistan’s Bank Account as the People Starve

coi232a

On COI #232, Kyle Anzalone discusses Biden’s recent decision to steal the billions of dollars in the Afghan government’s bank account. Biden says he will split the fund into two, one for 9/11 victims and an aid fund for Afghanistan. However, Afghanistan cannot survive on a trickle of US aid, and the current Afghanistan government must be given access to the funds to advertise the crisis.  Kyle updates the tensions over Ukraine. The Biden White House is demanding Americans flee Ukraine as the Russian invasion any day. Ukraine is downplaying the risk of invasion saying the current enemy is...

Texas Is Not Free: A Case of Civil Asset Forfeiture

On May 14, 2019, Ameal Woods drove from rural Mississippi to Houston with $42,300 in cash. He was ready to achieve a major goal he and his wife had worked, saved and borrowed for: Purchasing a second semi truck for the fledgling trucking business he operated with his brother, and perhaps a trailer, too. Along Interstate 10 in Texas, however, his entrepreneurial dream turned into a nightmare. It started when Woods was pulled over by a Harris County sheriff’s deputy who claimed Woods had been following too closely behind the truck in front of him. The deputy asked Woods if he was carrying...

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

Admin Ajax

In Congress, July 4, 1776. When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these...

You Call Me Sergeant When I’m Talking To You

Doctor Armen Henderson was handcuffed by Miami police as he was loading health care supplies for the homeless into his van in front of his house.  His crime - disrespect. "Dr. Armen Henderson, an internal medicine physician at the University of Miami Health System, said his biggest concern about the up-close encounter was that the Miami-Dade police sergeant was not wearing a protective mask when Henderson says the sergeant got "all up in my face," Henderson told ABC News on Sunday. The incident occurred on Friday, just three days after Miami-Dade Police Chief Jorge Colina announced that...

End the Fed

Screen Shot 2020 03 05 At 12.16.08 Pm

In response to the potential economic downturn in the economy arising from the spread of the Coronavirus, the Federal Reserve dropped the federal funds rate by half a point — to a range of 1% to 1.25%. Ironically, after the Fed’s announcement, the stock market dropped 786 points or 2.9%. The Fed’s aim is to stimulate economic activity. By lowering interest rates, the idea is to get businesses to expand operations with more loans and to get consumers to go deeper into debt by purchasing more items.  The result of the Fed’s artificial economic “boost” will be the same as it has been...

Atlantic Council Loves Ukrainian Nazis

The Azov Battalion? They might love Hitler a little bit, but really are a bunch of heroes now, don't you know?: In their recent New York Times op-ed, “We once fought jihadists. Now we battle white supremacists,” Democratic Congressman Max Rose and former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) special agent Ali H. Soufan raise a critical question: to what extent can we consider domestic right-wing terrorism an exclusively domestic phenomenon? As a follow up, they also ask about the role transnational links have in the radicalization process between different far-right groups. One of the...

Conservatives Are Increasingly Wrong about Free Markets

Capitalism creates poverty. Capitalism has stolen our future. Capitalism ravages the planet. Capitalism oppresses us. Capitalism needs to be controlled by government or it will throw most of us into poverty and misery and enrich only the well-placed few. These are not missives from The Nation or the Daily Worker, although no doubt the writers from those publications would share the sentiments. No, these diatribes against the market economy come from the American Conservative. Of course, it is hardly the only conservative publication that rails against the market system, as First...

Bags, Germs and Stealing

Denver is jumping on the plastic bag tax train, joining ranks with New York, California and several other Colorado jurisdictions, but will the bag tax be effective at changing habits or improving environmental conditions? Admittedly, there are far worse tyrannies to suffer than a plastic bag tax, but the subtleties underlying never-ending government expansion and continual attempts at modifying human behavior through legislation are always worth dissecting. Last week, the Denver City Council voted unanimously to approve Council Bill No. 19-1176 which outlines the parameters surrounding a...

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...

The “Officer Friendly” Police Fantasy

Police in Tempe, Arizona, announced plans in July for a “positive ticketing” campaign to pull over drivers who had violated no traffic laws. A Phoenix TV station reported that the police would give the people they targeted free soft-drink coupons for Circle K as a reward for their “good driving behavior.” Police in other areas have run similar programs in recent years but the TV news report on Tempe’s plan spurred a torrent of testy Tweets: “Keep your hands on the wheel and don’t make any sudden moves while you are being rewarded, it could cost you your life.” “We gunned him down…. well,...
