“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,...[A]nd if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”- Hillary Clinton (2006 Audio Emerges of Hillary Clinton Proposing Rigging the Election, Observer.com, October 28th, 2016) It’s official. Hillary Clinton spread election misinformation on the 2016 presidential debate stage by claiming 17 intelligence agencies had confirmed Russian interference in the election. And in 2020 Joe Biden spread...

America’s Exceptional Amnesia (About Those War Criminals…)

p8453 14

The top-ranking U.S. diplomat, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, recently denounced Russian president Vladimir Putin as a war criminal, which has resulted in a marked uptick in the usage of that term throughout the media. Putin decided to invade Ukraine in February 2022 and has killed people in the process. That’s what happens when leaders decide to address conflict through the application of military force: people die. The U.S. government has needless to say killed many people in its military interventions abroad, most recently in the Middle East and Africa. Yet Americans are often...

The History Behind the Russia-Ukraine War

Scotthorton Sized

The following is adapted from a speech Scott gave to the Libertarian Party of Utah on February 26, 2022. Just to get this out of the way first real quick: Whenever someone dares to differ with the common government and TV narrative about Russia and their role in the world, that person is usually instantly condemned as spouting "Russian talking points," or being "paid by Putin." This is probably especially the case this week as Russia is waging an aggressive invasion against their neighbor Ukraine as we speak. But that is still nonsense. Where would a Texan obtain these talking points? Are...

January 6th: A Turgid Anniversary

democracy 2021 capitol dome barbed wire

Last year’s Jan. 6 clash at the Capitol may be the most politically exploited ruckus in American history. Team Biden is doing a victory lap to mark the anniversary, but the feds continue covering up key information regarding that day’s events. Democrats are canonizing a false version of history to change voting laws to perpetuate many of the shoddy if not shady practices that tarnished the 2020 election. After the fracas a year ago, Democratic members of Congress made ludicrous claims about the perils they faced that day. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said, “We came close to half...

How I Robbed the World Bank

jpb world bank press passes wrecking ball 2

I have always had a bad attitude toward official secrets regardless of who is keeping them. That prejudice and John Kenneth Galbraith are to blame for an unauthorized withdrawal I made from the World Bank. When I lived in Boston in the late 1970s, I paid $25 to attend a series of lectures by Galbraith on foreign aid and other topics. The louder Galbraith praised foreign aid, the warier I became. His hokum spurred my reading and led me to recognize that foreign aid is one of the worst afflictions that poor nations suffer. As one critic quipped, foreign aid is money from governments, to...
