Somali MP: US Airstrike Killed Six Somali Civilians on a Minibus

US claimed everyone killed was a 'terrorist' US African Command (AFRICOM) is promising an investigation after an airstrike against a minibus full of people was reported by locals, including a Somali MP, of having killed six civilians. The US had reported on the strike on Tuesday, saying they destroyed the minibus and killed “five terrorists.” As is so common with US killings, they did not name any of the victims. MP Mahad Dhoore confirmed everyone inside was civilian. One of the family members of the victims noted that the slain included his 70-year-old father, who cannot walk without a...

The Disgusting Amy Klobuchar

She's a guilty accessory to murder. "At the same time she was ramping up sentences, Ms. Klobuchar was also building a tight relationship with law enforcement, which is common for prosecutors. Some civil rights leaders say that skewed her other priorities, and explains why Ms. Klobuchar did not file charges in more than two-dozen police-involved deaths on her watch. She referred those cases to a grand jury instead, angering relatives of some victims who saw it as a way of avoiding responsibility while keeping the process...

The Conscience of a Liberal by Paul Krugman – REBUTTED

Economist Robert P. Murphy and I discuss Krugman's take on leftism, the morality of the state, welfare, economic cycles, inequality, the great depression and much more! In short, Krugman fails to explain why the state has a moral right to do things (initiate violence against peaceful people to collect taxes, cage them for victimless crimes, etc.) no other group has the right to do, rendering his thesis not only contradictory but also immoral.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLYUB_bes9c BitChute: https://www.bitchute.com/video/kVyroemlpl7a/ Archive:...

How About Some Accountability

For cops that break the law and send innocent people to jail. Jason Arbeeny, a fourteen-year veteran of the NYPD, was convicted of planting crack on a innocent couple, but avoided jail yesterday with a teary apology. “I can’t look at myself in the mirror anymore,” Arbeeny's attorney blamed his action on the "enormous pressure" of arrest quotas.  It's called flaking by the cops - planting drugs on innocent people to pump their arrest stats. A former detective cooperating with prosecutors detailed in court the practice of “flaking,” or planting drugs on innocent people, which he admitted to...

Even by Afghanistan’s grim standards, 2019 has been particularly deadly for children

The real cost of war AP. A new report by the U.N. children’s agency, released Tuesday, says that in the first nine months of this year, nine children were killed or maimed every day as a result of war.  Since the ICRC began its rehabilitation program in Afghanistan in 1988, more than 177,000 people, including more than 46,000 amputees, have been treated at its centers across the country. Among the amputees registered, 77% were landmine victims and 70% of those were civilians. The harm inflicted by more than four decades of war has been cumulative. In 2018 Afghanistan was the world’s most...

"I know in 2019, looking back at 2008, things look different," Acosta said, alleging that "today's world treats victims very, very differently." Hey, it was the 70s. Everyone was on ludes and reading old beat poets. We had brown paisley shirts with big lapels. Man it was groovy. The age of consent was 14 back then. Things are way different now.
