RT Russia Today with Yulia Shapovalova: Calls to stop Syria ‘killing machine’ at UN as Russia, China slam sanctions

by
Jacob Hornberger, the founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, told RT that the only thing UN resolutions can do is “pour fuel onto the fire.” “That is the whole idea of these resolutions,” he explained. The real thrust of any resolution on Syria would be regime change, he added: “It begins with sanctions. It goes into embargoes, ... [click for more]

The Real Reason Guantánamo Should Be Closed

by
It has been ten years now since the first “terrorists” arrived at the U.S. military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Of the 779 people who have been detained at Guantánamo over the years, 171 still remain.

Obama Considers Repatriating Foreign Prisoners from Bagram

by
Ten years ago, foreign prisoners, seized in other countries, began to arrive in the U.S. prison at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan. Some were held in a secretive part of the prison and had often passed through other secret facilities in Afghanistan or elsewhere. The majority of those prisoners ended up in Guantánamo, but some were stealthily repatriated ... [click for more]

The Greatest Threat to Our Freedom, Part 1

by
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 Of all the dangers to the freedom of the American people, I would rank the enemy-combatant doctrine as the greatest. In my opinion, the federal government’s power to label a person a terrorist as part of its so-called war on terrorism — a power that came into ... [click for more]

Economic Fallacies

by
In On Liberty John Stuart Mill wrote, “He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.” This is an especially important principle for libertarians. We rely on persuasion to win adherents to the freedom philosophy. To persuade, one must use effective techniques of rhetoric. Just as important, one must know what one is arguing ...

Hubris and Illegitimate Assumptions

by
Are libertarians pro-business or pro-labor? That’s one of the questions from the few moderates and centrists who are deciding to show some interest in libertarian philosophy. They know there’s something fundamentally wrong with what the big-government types say and do, and they want to see what else is out there. It’s a legitimate question, even if it stems from ...

A Real Foreign Policy Debate

by
A recent poll has revealed a schism within the GOP over foreign policy. In a Washington Times and JZ Analytics survey, 48 percent of Republicans said the United States should maintain a policy of intervening where its interests are challenged. But 46 percent disagreed, saying the country is “in a new global era” where it can no longer take ... [click for more]

The Long History of Entrapment Insanity

by
America has seen a profusion of entrapment schemes in recent years. Many of the most high-profile domestic-terrorism cases have been ginned up by FBI agents who preyed on persons who had little competence for creating perils on their own. The explosion in entrapment operations is partly the result of a profound shift in the type of abuses that courts ... [click for more]

Food Stamp Politicians

by
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is in hot water for referring to Barack Obama as “the food-stamp president.” The NAACP and the National Urban League have sharply criticized Gingrich for saying that “the African-American community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps.” In the FOX News Republican presidential debate held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on ...

Beyond the DREAM Act

by
We’ve all heard of the policy centerpiece for immigration-reform proponents, the DREAM Act. The battle over this legislation, which would offer a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants, has labored on for more than a decade now; but, rather than being enacted, the bill has failed repeatedly. Sadly, the legislative battle has stoked animosity instead of intelligent dialogue ... [click for more]
