House lays out its impeachment probe
Post Date: 2019-09-10 01:28:56 by Gatlin
The House Judiciary Committee laid out the procedures on Monday of what it's calling its ongoing "impeachment investigation" of President Donald Trump. WASHINGTON The House Judiciary Committee laid out specific committee procedures governing hearings moving forward as part of what it's calling an ongoing "impeachment investigation" of President Donald Trump, setting the stage for a vote to define that probe which could come this week. The release of the resolution comes after the committee's chairman, Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., declared last month that his panel was proceeding with an impeachment investigation despite there being no vote to do ...
Jim Jordan calls out House Dems: Figure out who's 'going to jail' over Trump-Russia, Clinton probes
Post Date: 2019-09-10 01:05:29 by Gatlin
As House Democrats prepare to proceed with their legislative agenda, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said lawmakers should shift their focus from impeachment to investigating former FBI Director James Comey and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "When you're solely focused on going after the president you can't do what's best for the country. And that's been the problem with the Democrats," Jordan said Monday on "Fox & Friends." "Jim Comey... is the guy solely responsible for putting the country through three years of this saga that we have now lived through," he continued, arguing that many Americans want to know "when ...
Mark Sanford announces Trump primary challenge

Mark Sanford on Sunday said he will mount a primary challenge to President Trump in 2020, jumping into the race after publicly toying with the idea for several months. He said there needs to be a conversation on what it means to be a Republican. I think that as a Republican Party we have lost our way, said the former South Carolina governor on Fox News Sunday. Asked if he honestly thinks he has a shot at winning, Mr. Sanford said: Im saying, you never know. ...
Biden’s bloody eye: A new health problem for Dem frontrunner?
Post Date: 2019-09-06 10:21:59 by Tooconservative
One would think that having a leading candidate spontaneously bleed out of an eye socket on live television would grab the medias attention. One would think incorrectly, as it turns out, even when that presidential candidate is the 76-year-old frontrunner with a history of aneurysms. During last nights CNN marathon forum on climate change, Joe Bidens left eye filled with blood while he talked about climate change. Yet outside of a few conservative publications, hardly a media outlet blinked its own eyes, including the news channel that hosted it: The Washington Free Beacon reported on it, as did the Examiner: Former Vice President Joe Bidens left eye appeared to ...
Libertarians Have Trouble Deciding Who Are Real Libertarians [My Title]
Post Date: 2019-08-25 04:22:04 by Gatlin
Misconceptions of Real Libertarians If youve been involved within the liberty movement for any considerable amount of time, you have no doubt been accused at some point of not being a real libertarian. Real libertarians are simultaneously common and rare within the movement. They are common enough in that they are always available to point out fake libertarians, but are also so rare that few (if any) have made it long without being dropped from the list of real libertarians. There are two problems with most instances of these accusations. But first, a clarification: there certainly are people that adopt the libertarian label but dont adhere to libertarian values. ...

Mark Levin Rips Into Rand Paul Over Iran
Post Date: 2019-08-15 06:01:43 by Gatlin
Levin: Kentucky senator 'no different than' Ilhan Omar on foreign policy. Mark Levin tore into Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) on his radio show Wednesday over his foreign policy after news that Paul wanted to be President Donald Trump's emissary to Iran. The conservative radio host responded to news that Paul had pitched Trump on being a backchannel to Iran for the administration and meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to reduce tensions. Paul had previously criticized the administration over the economic sanctions placed on Iran, saying Iranians viewed the sanctions as an act of war. Levin said Paul was "no different than Bernie Sanders or frankly Ilhan ...
Rand Paul Would Undermine Trump’s Iran Policy
Post Date: 2019-08-14 03:55:56 by Gatlin
The senator's views on the Islamic Republic are dangerous and deeply misguided. The Trump administration's strategy toward Iran is to exert maximum pressure on the regime to force it to renegotiate the flawed nuclear deal and, hopefully, to reach a broader agreement that curtails Iran's nonnuclear belligerence, both within its borders and across the Middle East. And if Tehran refuses to negotiate, then the administration will crush Iran's tyrannical regime using the immense weight of American power, giving Iranian leaders a choice: yield, compromise, and survive, or risk untold sufferingand possible extinction. The strategy is working. Already one hears ...
Libertarians smarter? [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2019-08-10 14:33:23 by Deckard
Are liberals really smarter than conservatives? Or are libertarians smarter than anyone else? A recent column in The Daily Mail suggests so. True or not, it shows that liberal and conservative are not the only two extremes of opinion. In fact, they are special cases of a far more general political landscape.Traditional political labels By tradition, conservative and liberal (formerly progressive) stand for two different sets of freedoms on one hand, and entitlements on the other.

The False Left-Right Paradigm

The two-party system is an illusion. It is a facade. It is a false paradigm.

Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch.Sure, the politician broadcasts their position on an issue that is aligned with their side of the political aisle. This issue is, of course, a narrative backed by moneyed interests. Would a politician be inspired otherwise? Absolutely not.The outlet for the ...
Earth to Libertarians: Immigration Hurts American Workers
Post Date: 2019-08-10 12:22:31 by Gatlin
An Islamist, a Communist, and a libertarian walk into a bar. The Islamist says submission to Allah is the highest virtue and an ideal society adopts Sharia Law. The Communist strokes his grizzled beard in disagreement. Religion is the opium of the people. What really matters is equality! He then explains how Communism fixes inequality caused by bourgeois decadence. The Islamist nods approvinglyafter all, decadence is sinful. Finally, the libertarian pipes up: No, no. Individual liberty is what really matters! Sharia Law and communism are fundamentally immoral because they violate personal freedoms. The Islamist and communist exchange a furtive glance before ...
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'I Have a Lot of Common Ground With Many Libertarian Viewpoints'
Post Date: 2019-08-09 10:59:33 by Gatlin
(Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/Newscom) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) spends much of her time in the public eye separating herself from the pack in Washington, D.C. Sometimes that means criticizing the GOP, other times, lamenting what she sees as the sheepishness of her own party. But in an Instagram live stream last week, the democratic socialist congresswoman told viewers that she does find some commonality with libertarians."I actually think I have a lot of common ground with many libertarian viewpoints in [the Republican] party," Ocasio-Cortez said, emphasizing her stances on immigration, the military, and privacy rights. Her admission comes not long after she and ...
Cory Booker Is Right: Joe Biden's Criminal Justice Record 'Destroyed Lives'
Post Date: 2019-08-01 08:27:50 by Tooconservative
A sharp exchange at tonight's Democratic debate showed that, no matter how much he'd like to, former Vice President Joe Biden won't be able to sidestep his disastrous record on criminal justice. CNN moderator Jake Tapper asked Biden to respond to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker's criticism that Biden's recently unveiled criminal justice reform proposal was "an inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country." "Right now, we're in a situation where, when someone is convicted of a drug crime, they end up going to jail and to prison," Biden said. "They should be going to rehabilitation. They shouldn't be going to prison. When in ...
Yikes: Trump Boxes With Cummings Over Border Conditions

A Kentucky farmer, ex-Marine wants to challenge Mitch McConnell in 2020 US Senate race

LOUISVILLE, Ky. Kentucky Democrats will have more options on next year's ballot when deciding who should take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2020. Farmer and retired Marine Mike Broihier, a first-time candidate, entered the race Thursday with a three-minute advertisement that calls on voters to forget their labels. It's time to retire Mitch McConnell," Broihier said in an interview with the Louisville Courier Journal this week. "We have to do it to restore our democracy, and I've been warned about what he's capable of doing, but it doesn't scare me."

The Last Few Days Exemplify Why I'm Libertarian (and Why You Should Be Too)

Media And Public Disagree On Tulsi Gabbard's Debate Performance
Post Date: 2019-06-27 15:41:49 by Hondo68
The mainstream media seem to judge the Democratic primary debate last night quite differently than the general public. Quartz cites multiple polls which show that Tulsi Gabbard won the debate: [T]wo candidates seemed to pique a lot of interest among US voters, at least when judged by who Americans searched for on Google: New Jersey senator Cory Booker and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. A poll by the right-leaning Drudge Report also found Gabbard to be the breakout of the debate with 38% of the vote, well ahead of Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren in second place. Gabbard also topped polls by local news sites including NJ.com and the Washington Examiner. Now contrast that with the ...
Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger
Post Date: 2019-06-23 18:45:13 by Operation 40
Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger Joining a long and illustrious list of privileged boys who start wars but never have to fight in them, it turns out John Bolton, Mister Let's Attack Iran, took an easy way when it was his turn to fight. It is not surprising that Bolton supported the Vietnam War while at Yale and might have even debated in favor of it as a member of the Yale Political Union. But when his draft number came up 185, Johnny Boy copped to the Guard. Since the National Guard units across America were full of boys doing exactly the same thing, almost guaranteed stateside service rather than nasty ambushes in the jungle, it sometimes took some ...
Trump fills the Pentagon swamp
Post Date: 2019-06-19 09:46:04 by Deckard
When Donald Trump spoke of coming to Washington to drain the swamp, you might have thought the swamp he derided was the incestuous network of insiders who enrich themselves while passing through the revolving door between government and K Street. You might have thought the draining would involve slowing the revolving door and ceasing this cycle of self-enrichment. But no. By the swamp, Trump clearly just meant people I dont like. And the draining never happened. This week, as a former executive from Boeing (the No. 2 contractor for the Defense Department last year) stepped down as Trumps acting defense secretary, Trump replaced him ...
Why Avoiding the Cult of Personality Is Important
Post Date: 2019-06-19 09:39:29 by Deckard
Many have been attracted to numerous political figures, and they can take it too far.Cult of Personality One of my biggest weaknesses is developing too much admiration for those who help contribute to how I think. I believe this rings true for most people. You likely experience this when listening to a band that soon becomes your favorite or an author who writes the novel that speaks to you. This often contributes to fan groups online and could potentially evolve into very heated arguments as to whose group is superior. When this translates to politics, the emotional connection is very similar. We often think about political figures in unhealthy ways, whether they fill us with overflowing ...
Why Gillibrand Is the Most Vapid Clown in the Car

She is so excruciatingly, insufferably, painfully stupid, shallow, pandering, desperate, and without ethics. Kirsten Gillibrand. United States Senator from New York. Candidate for 2020 Democrat Presidential nomination. Dolt. She was not initially on my radar. I follow the news like a hawk, but she always was so politically lightweight make that bantamweight that she did not register. Here in California, register is a term we often use for earthquakes.

FIRE THE NUTCASES LEADING US TO WAR
Post Date: 2019-05-20 09:40:35 by Deckard
President Donald Trump claimed this week that he does not want war with Iran. If he really believes this, the president ought to look into what his subordinates are doing. Among their bellicose actions are deployment of the Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 carrier task force to the coast of Iran, massing a strike package of B-52 heavy bombers in Qatar, just across the Gulf from Iran, positioning more US warplanes around Iran, readying a massive cyber attack against Iran, and trying to stop the export of Iranian oil, upon which its economy depends. Plus repeated attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran something the US already did very skillfully in 1953. If all this is not ...
