Freedom Is Dangerous

In the ideal world of those Americans who oppose the libertarian concept of open borders, there would be a 50-foot wall all around America, manned and patrolled by an enormous army of well-armed military troops prepared to do whatever is necessary to prevent any foreigner from getting through. Additionally, in their minds they envision a federal planning agency that ...

How They Could Confiscate Your AR-15

Anyone who thinks it would be difficult for U.S. officials to confiscate people’s AR-15s and other semi-automatic weapons forgets how they confiscated everyone’s gold coins in the 1930s.

The topic this week was “The Orlando Massacre.” It was a lively discussion that covered various aspects of the massacre. After the show, the director said that it was ...

Interventionism Is a Rotten Tree with Rotten Fruit

Fifty-one State Department officials are calling on President Obama to expand U.S. interventionism in Syria by initiating a bombing campaign against the Syrian government. Apparently they’re not satisfied with the great “success” that their philosophy of interventionism has brought to Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and the rest of the Middle East. They want the U.S. national-security state’s death ...

Interventionism, Not Islam, Is the Problem

President Obama, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and others of the mainstream interventionist ilk continue to debate whether the terrorist problem that America is facing is due to radical Muslims or regular Muslims.
