A Hollywood Legend Talks Politics Actor-director Clint Eastwood, 89, weighs in on Bloomberg, Trump, #MeToo and the dispute over a reporters depiction in his latest film. By Tunku Varadarajan Feb. 21, 2020 Many years ago, Clint Eastwood saysdrawing close to me as if to share a secretI was in Las Vegas. The Hollywood actor and director was staying at a hotel owned by Steve Wynn, the casino billionaire. Steve called me up in the room and said, Do you want to go play golf? Were going out with Trump. I said, Who? and Steve said, Trump. You know Trump? So Messrs. Eastwood and Wynn ventured out for ...
Movie Review: Vanishing Point (1971) : A libertarian perspective
Post Date: 2020-02-19 09:39:50 by Deckard
Classic I am Spartacus car movie ___ 9/10 Review by Brian WrightSuper Soul: This radio station was named Kowalski, in honor of the last American hero to whom speed means freedom of the soul. The question is not whens he gonna stop, but who is gonna stop him.Welcome to an original libertarian cult car film. Interestingly, the year of production coincides with the year of founding of the Libertarian Party
which origination isnt so important in itself, but reveals the early state of consciousness of the modern American (and planetary) libertarian movement. The young freedom movement had many heads: a minority one was explicitly antiwar, antiestablishment, and ...
Impeachment blowback: Trump supporters feeling good
Post Date: 2020-02-01 05:24:43 by WWG1WWA
President Trump’s voters have been on a slow burn ever since the Russia hoax was launched to frame him. We got angrier as it dragged on for two endless years, dirtying the president up with baseless investigations, and suppressing his approval ratings. When the rigged investigation flopped, and the responsible Obama officials came under investigation by the DOJ, we thought it was behind us. The respite was brief. The Ukraine Hoax rolled out, the sham impeachment was launched, and Trump supporters entered a stage of cold, implacable rage and the determination to win.
Dems have no interest in and no idea of the impact of their antics on normal Americans. We deplorables don’t count as ...
Dead President Walking
Post Date: 2020-01-28 22:30:34 by Deckard
I never thought Id hear myself say this, but Im a little worried about Donald Trump. Im worried he may be on the verge of a sudden, major heart attack, or a stroke, or a fatal golfing accident. Food poisoning is another possibility. Or he could overdose on prescription medication. A tanning bed mishap is not out of the question.He could accidentally hang himself during autoerotic asphyxiation, or get shot by a lone-wolf white supremacist terrorist trying to start the RaHoWa. The Russians could spray him with that Novichok perfume.There are any number of ways he could snuff it.I dont mean to sound alarmist, but the Resistance is running out of non-lethal options for ...
Will Democrats Take Up Arms To Remove 'Dictator' Trump Or Are They All Talk?
Post Date: 2020-01-27 08:37:02 by WWG1WWA
I want to know why you Democrats are such cowards that you have not yet launched another civil war to free America of the totalitarian nightmare of President Donald J. Trump. I mean, if hes truly Hitler 2: Electric Boogeyman, then isnt it your sacred duty to remove this cancer on our body politic with arms if necessary? Look, I get that you Dems have a track record on insurrections designed to oppress the rights of Americans you feel superior to that is pretty poor (0-1) but come on, heroes of democracy, make your move! Just sitting here in the midst of this crisis you keep whining about makes you look like sissies or lying piles of talking garbage. Actually, both. Your hero, ...
Propaganda and Islam: What You’re Not Being Told [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2020-01-10 19:56:12 by Deckard
(AM Op-Ed) Propaganda is the wheel by which the government steers the bus of a nation; typically driving it into war or off the cliff of humanity. It is amazing to see how many people who are otherwise rational human beings will blindly follow the herd on the matter of how subhuman a perceived national enemy is. Some western media wonderfully paints Islam as a death cult bent on world domination. Over and over again the American populace is shown footage of the atrocities committed by fanatics or of Arab men burning American flags. The problem, of course, is that this isnt remotely representative of the Islamic population of the world. Are there Muslims who employ terrorism? Of ...
Come Home, America: Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to Wars-Without-End
Post Date: 2020-01-09 13:16:10 by Deckard
Its time to bring our troops home. Bring them home from Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Bring them home from Germany, South Korea and Japan. Bring them home from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. Bring them home from Niger, Chad and Mali. Bring them home from Turkey, the Philippines, and northern Australia. Thats not whats going to happen, of course. The U.S. military reportedly has more than 1.3 million men and women on active duty, with more than 200,000 of them stationed overseas in nearly every country in the world. Those numbers are likely significantly higher in keeping with the Pentagons policy of not fully disclosing where and how ...
The War Pigs Are Finally Revealing Themselves — And This Is Just The Beginning…
Post Date: 2020-01-09 12:14:02 by Deckard
Op-Ed by Brandon Smith In 2016 during the election campaign of Donald Trump one of the primary factors of his popularity among conservatives was that he was one of the first candidates since Ron Paul to argue for bringing US troops home and ending American involvement in the various elitist fabricated wars in the Middle East. From Iraq, to Afghanistan, to Syria and Yemen and beyond, the Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs at the behest of their globalist masters had been waging war oversees unabated for over 15 years. The time was ripe for a change and people felt certain that if Hillary Clinton entered the White House, another 4-8 years of war were guaranteed. There was nothing to be gained from these ...
The Most Irritating person of 2019 is....
Post Date: 2019-12-30 10:54:29 by IbJensen
We are now looking at 2019 in our rear view mirrors, since it is time for those irritating The Best/Worst of the year lists. This past year was full of irritations, on many levels, from the shallow and superficial, to the rarest of rare political actions taken by the most irritating Congress in history. Lets start with some of the candidates: Speaking of shallow and superficial, there is that previously little-known actor Jussie Smollett. His claim to fame was as a character in the FOX TV show Empire. Smollett, a gay black man, became a hero portraying, you guessed it: a gay black man. He became irritating by falsely accusing MAGA hat-wearing white ...
Rep. Bill Posey's Opening Statement Re: Impeachment
Post Date: 2019-12-18 23:10:36 by IbJensen
Tonight the House of Representatives voted on Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. I voted NO and below is my House floor statement opposing this effort to overturn the results of the 2016 election: Madam Speaker, I rise to oppose the articles of impeachment that have been produced by this flawed process, which was based on hearsay and testimony largely collected from a closed-door, one-sided investigation. In fact, the only witness we heard from who had direct knowledge of the conversation in question, testified that President Trump did not want a quid pro quo and confirmed that the aid to Ukraine was released without the launching of any investigation that the ...

Bloomberg, Biden, Buttigieg and the bunch apologize. Should black voters listen, forgive and vote?
Post Date: 2019-11-23 11:10:21 by Anthem
Of course, Michael Bloomberg went there there being a black church to ask for forgiveness. As he tentatively dips his toe and his billions into the Democratic presidential race, joining a scrum that expands even as it shrinks, Bloomberg, perhaps realizing that the path to the presidency must include the enthusiastic support of black and brown voters, has rethought his enthusiastic support of stop and frisk. I got something important really wrong, he told the congregation at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn on Sunday. I didnt understand back then the full impact that stops were having on the black and Latino communities. Click for ...
The United States Government is a Criminal Racket Writ Large
Post Date: 2019-11-21 16:09:10 by Deckard
A certain type of person strives to become a master over all, and to extend his force, his will to power, and to subdue all that resists it. But he encounters the power of others, and comes to an arrangement, a union, with those that are like him: thus they work together to serve the will to power. And the process goes on. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche The political class is made up of those that seek to gain power over others due to either an attitude of superiority, an inflated ego, a desire to advance a personal agenda, or a misplaced concern for the wretched majority that they believe through power can be molded to their way of thinking. These political types are of many ...
A-Bombs in the Neighbor’s Basement and the NAP
Post Date: 2019-11-20 17:52:02 by Deckard
Objections to the Libertarian foundational premise the non-aggression principle often raise outlandish, even hysterical scenarios designed to push the envelope of peoples fear tolerance . . . in order to get them to accept being restricted and punished for actions that have not directly or actually caused harm to others. Thus, the atom bomb in the neighbors basement and the speeder doing 120 in a cul-de-sac. Both scenarios are possibilities, of course. It would be silly to make the argument that, in the absence of laws prohibiting it, someone might decide to build himself an A bomb or drive 120 in a cul-de-sac. But heres the ...
The Bloomberg Factor [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2019-11-08 10:26:16 by Vicomte13
He might just do it. Michael Bloomberg, billionaire 38-times-over and former two-term successful Republican, then Independent, Mayor of New York, may enter the 2020 Presidential race. Apparently, he has been indicating to his inner circle that he does not want to run, and did not intend to, because he expected Joe Biden to be the Democrat nominee. But now that Biden is fading fast, and Elizabeth Warren with her very socialistic ideas appears poised to win the nomination, Bloomberg is apparently going to step in to run for the Democrat nominations. For my part, I have little doubt that if he does, he will win that nomination, and having done so, will then go on to win the presidency. ...
Not all trains have to be boondoggles
Post Date: 2019-10-30 17:30:04 by Deckard
Californias high-speed rail system has been a slow-motion train wreck since 2008, when voters approved an initiative providing nearly $10 billion in bonds to fund a starter segment of a system to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles. An Orange County Register columnist rightly termed it the very definition of a boondoggle. This bullet train has been plagued with cost overruns. Theres no need for it, given that Southwest Airlines already takes passengers from L.A. to the Bay Area quicker and cheaper than rail ever will. Gov. Gavin Newsom scaled it back to focus on a segment through the San Joaquin Valley. Its a far cry, though, from the original grandiose ...

June 9 protests, Hong Kong (Hf9631/Creative Commons) Once upon a time, privacy was everyone's default setting. Imagine an era when most letters and ledgers existed only in a single hard copy, when long-distance communication was slow and unreliable, when unpickable locks existed and cameras didn't.These are the conditions under which America's founding documents were written. It was far from a golden age, but there were undeniable upsides to a government that had neither the technology nor the resources to know what most people were up to most of the time.Those days are done. Privacy is dead. We have killed it, you and I.It happened slowly and then all at once, much like ...
[Bob] BARR: Intelligence Community Management Is Behind ‘Whistleblower’ Saboteurs

[Bob] BARR: Intelligence Community Management Is Behind Whistleblower Saboteurs Former Rep. Bob Barr Daily Caller Contributor September 30, 2019 10:00 AM ET The spectacle of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reading a made-up script of the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky would make it easy to dismiss the entire Ukrainegate matter as comic relief. But it appears to be the vehicle by which Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her House majority have decided to begin impeachment of a sitting president of the United States. There is a stench emanating from this episode that reveals it to be something far more ...

Will More US Troops in Saudi Arabia Make America Great?
Post Date: 2019-09-25 06:58:29 by Deckard
President Trump deserves credit for resisting the war cries from neocons like Sen. Lindsey Graham and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after last weeks attack on two Saudi oil facilities. Pompeo was eager to blame Iran because he wants war with Iran and anything that can trigger such a war is fine with him. So he put the president in a difficult spot by declaring Iran the culprit: suddenly the presidents options in the media and in Washington were limited to how to punish Iran.A week has now passed since the attack and Pompeos rush to judgement has been shown for what it was: war propaganda. That is because there has still been no determination of who launched ...
Elizabeth Warren’s Social Security Proposal Doesn’t Go Far Enough: It’s Time For A Basic (Retirement) Income
Post Date: 2019-09-15 11:36:59 by Willie Green
Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has a new and expansive proposal for Social Security. Its a grab-bag of changes, as seems to be the norm these days, a list that includes the following:A $200 flat boost to all recipients benefits. (Is the $200 a one-time boost, or does it grow with inflation, and why not integrate that into the formula itself?)Cost-of-living increases based on the CPI-E, a version of the consumer price index thats based on a basket of goods of a typical older person, with more weight given to healthcare, for example.A caregiver credit based on the median wage, for each month an individual provides 80 hours of ...
Christine Blasey Ford's Father Privately Supported Brett Kavanaught's Confirmation
Post Date: 2019-09-12 14:06:09 by Tooconservative
The duo note the very weak and vague statement the father made on behalf of his daughter with the indelible hippocampus -- a strange and salient fact in and of itself. Then they get to the scoop: [I]t appears the Blasey family had significant doubts about what Ford was trying to accomplish by coming forward and making unsubstantiated allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Within days of Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, a fascinating encounter took place. Brett Kavanaugh's father was approached by Fords father at the golf club where they are both members. Ralph Blasey, Fords father, went out of his way to offer to Ed Kavanaugh his support of Brett ...
The Bill of Rights Turns 230, and What Do We Have to Show for It? Nothing Good
