As of this writing the video on Twitter alone has been viewed nearly 200 million times, making it likely the most-viewed news event in history. Many millions of viewers who may not have had access to the … Continue reading “Tucker Carlson Slayed the Mainstream Media Dragon”

In 2024 Congress Should Commit to Cutting the War Budget

In the closing days of 2023, the Biden Administration once again announced a large military aid package for Ukraine, this time a “mere” quarter of a billion dollars. Without a new authorization of funds from Congress, it is said to be the last bit of money left over from the more than $100 billion already … Continue reading “In 2024 Congress Should Commit to Cutting the War Budget”

The NDAA: Congress’ ‘Gift’ to America This Christmas

Just before leaving town for Christmas break, the US House gave Americans a last-minute holiday gift: a nearly trillion dollar military spending bill filled with lots of goodies for the special interests and the military-industrial complex. Unfortunately, the rest of America got nothing but coal in its stockings. With Constitutionalists like Rep. Thomas Massie on … Continue reading “The NDAA: Congress’ ‘Gift’ to America This Christmas”

Lloyd Austin: Non-Interventionists Are the Real Enemy

Over the weekend Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin explained to the American people what’s really wrong with US foreign policy. Some might find his conclusions surprising. The US standing in the world is damaged not because we spent 20 years fighting an Afghan government that had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11. The problem … Continue reading “Lloyd Austin: Non-Interventionists Are the Real Enemy”

No Janet, We Cannot Afford More Wars

Bloomberg Intelligence recently released an analysis showing that a year of interest payments on the national debt now exceeds one trillion dollars. This should have been a wake-up call to Congress and the Biden administration, but it was largely ignored. The political and financial elites’ continued failure to acknowledge the dangers posed by the ever-growing … Continue reading “No Janet, We Cannot Afford More Wars”

Don’t Worry, It’s Not Foreign Aid… It’s Corporate Welfare!

Faced with growing American frustration over more than $100 billion spent on a failed proxy war in Ukraine, President Biden’s handlers have hit on a gimmick to convince us that this foreign aid is actually an investment in our own economy! In his recent television address, Biden explained that as we transfer more weapons to … Continue reading “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Foreign Aid… It’s Corporate Welfare!”

Biden Election Strategy: ‘Let’s Fight Three Wars at Once!’

President Joe Biden announced last week that the United States would be funding – and possibly fighting – three wars in three different parts of the world at the same time. It is an ambitious foreign policy for a president who doesn’t even seem to be able to express a coherent thought without the help … Continue reading “Biden Election Strategy: ‘Let’s Fight Three Wars at Once!’”

Hamas’s Victory

Those who called Hamas’s attack on Israel “Israel’s 9/11” were more accurate than they realized. Just as the US reacted to 9/11 by fulfilling Osama bin Laden’s wish that the US would get bogged down in no-win wars, Israel’s reaction to the Hamas attack fulfills Hamas’s likely goal of radicalizing more Palestinians. The result of … Continue reading “Hamas’s Victory”

Why Are We in Niger?

The July military coup in the west African country of Niger has once again brought attention to the fact that the US government runs a global military empire that serves Washington’s special interests, and not the national interest. Before the coup made news headlines, most Americans – including many serving in Congress – had no … Continue reading “Why Are We in Niger?”

As Maui Burns, Biden Demands Another $24 Billion… For Ukraine!

I am not a big fan of Federal Government disaster relief. Too much of the time the money never gets to those who need it most, and too often Washington’s armies of disaster “experts” are more interested in pushing people around than helping them. Nevertheless, it’s hard to look at recent footage of the devastation … Continue reading “As Maui Burns, Biden Demands Another $24 Billion… For Ukraine!”
