Are Europeans Re-Thinking Gun Control?

by
The civil unrest of the 1960s threatened many Americans, particularly those living in major cities, and the urban population was exploding. Rising crime and particularly armed violent crime shocked and scared voters, and for more than two decades the Second Amendment was the scapegoat — an anachronism, “misinterpreted” by “gun nuts,” deserving of repeal. Draconian gun laws, including gun ... [click for more]

We Are All Prisoners of the Surveillance State

by
“We’re run by the Pentagon, we're run by Madison Avenue, we're run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don't revolt we'll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche.... As long as we go out and buy stuff, we're at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. ... [click for more]

The Pro-War Media Deserve Criticism, Not Sainthood

by
The media nowadays are busy congratulating themselves for their vigorous criticism of Donald Trump.

How to Drain the Swamp: End the Failed War on Drugs, Part 1

by
There are few more wasteful and inappropriate federal activities than the seizing and destroying of indoor and outdoor cannabis plants. At the peak of Washington’s pointless war on drugs in 2010 the DEA funded the eradication of 11 million marijuana plants, and has caused 125 million of such “weeds” to be pulled and destroyed since 1990. That’s right. While the ... [click for more]

Why Kennedy Had to Be Removed

by
The current, ongoing brouhaha over Russia helps to show explain why the U.S. national-security establishment removed President John F. Kennedy from office in the regime-change operation that took place on November 22, 1963.
