Rex Tillerson: Trump’s Voice Of Reason On North Korea

As tensions with North Korea continue to be stoked by belligerent members of the Trump administration (as well as by Trump himself on occasion), one man has stood strong as the voice of reason: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. He is still advocating diplomacy, even after US Ambassador Nikki Haley declared “the time for talk is over” with regards to North Korea. “The best signal that North Korea can give us that they are prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches,” Tillerson said, according to a Reuters report. Tillerson went on to add that “other means of… Keep Reading

Justin Amash Defends His Record During Contentious Town Hall Meetings

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has never been afraid to meet his constituents face-to-face and discuss the hard issues, even with the political system as bitter and divided as it has ever been. Amash was happy to defend his positions during two town hall events last week, even on particularly contentious topics like military policy and his frequent clashes with President Trump. Amash received some flak from the audience for his ‘no’ vote against the “Make America Secure” Appropriations Act. Combined with his ‘no’ votes against Trump-backed immigration measures, this has caused many Republicans to question Amash’s motives. Nevertheless, Amash stands… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Abandons Market Principles In His Attempt To Nationalize Bail Bonds

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is known for his support of free market principles, but that apparently changes entirely when it comes to bail. He is championing legislation alongside Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) that would use federal grants to effectively destroy the bail bonds industry, putting thousands of small businessmen at risk of losing their livelihoods. “Our justice system was designed with a promise: to treat all people equally,” Harris was quoted as saying in a news release. “Yet more than 450,000 Americans sit in jail today awaiting trial and many of them cannot afford ‘money bail.’ In our country, whether… Keep Reading

A Neocon Unhinged: Crazed McMaster Threatens Aggressive War Against North Korea

When President Donald Trump pledged to drain the swamp on the campaign trail last year, his supporters certainly figured that this meant no swamp rats would be included in his administration. Of course, they would inevitably be disappointed. Many members of the reviled political establishment found their way into the Trump administration, none of them more odious than National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. McMaster replaced Michael Flynn in his role, who was ousted for omitting information to Vice President Mike Pence. Flynn bucked the Washington D.C. foreign policy consensus in key ways, but his successor, McMaster is a fierce proponent… Keep Reading

‘Pharma Bro’ Becomes Political Prisoner After Federal Fraud Conviction

Infamous former drug company CEO Martin Shkreli was convicted on three counts of deceiving his hedge fund investors today. He could face up to 20 years in prison for his alleged role in these crimes, but the raunchy whistleblower dubbed ‘Pharma Bro’ for his wild antics isn’t taking his sentence lying down. “My investors made three-to-five times their money without any aid from any settlement agreement. Some made ten times or more than that of their original investment after they did receive their settlements,” Shkreli said after the verdict, thanking the jury for not convicting him of harsher charges as… Keep Reading

Jury Nullification Used To Free Libertarian Activist In Maryland

Dennis Fusaro, a libertarian activist, and Steve Waters were found not guilty by a jury of their own peers for illegal free speech. The men had sent a robocall back in 2014 to 5,000 people in Anne Arundel County, Maryland on the weekend before an important election. The robocall congratulated Democratic County Council candidate Patrick Armstrong “for his bravery in coming out of the closet” after he supported a transgender bathroom mandate. “Transgenders can now openly and freely go into any bathroom of their choice based on their confused gender identity,” the obviously satirical script for the robocall read. “Tell… Keep Reading

As “Liberty Summer” Campaigns Implode, Young Americans For Liberty Leaders Continue To Push Them On Activists

The fallout from the “Liberty Summer” campaigns continues on. Young Americans for Liberty leaders have been selling their activists on these campaigns all summer (and continue to do so), but they have not turned out as expected. The “Clean Mi Govt” part-time legislature initiative headed by Brian Calley continues to receive terrible press in Michigan while Luther Strange, a Mitch McConnell crony who is receiving help from YAL activists as well for his Senate campaign, has a bevy of scandals to deal with as he tries to keep his seat against more conservative opponents. For “Clean Mi Govt,” the entire… Keep Reading

Trump Clashes With Pelosi Over “Clearly Unconstitutional” Russian Sanctions

Congress is dead set against making America great again, and they prove it time after time. Most recently, they overwhelmingly passed a bill to place sanctions on Russia and hamstring the President into complying with them against his better judgment. Although Trump signed the bill into law, he expressed his dismay through a signing statement. “While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in the statement. “In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions.”… Keep Reading

Acclaimed Journalist Dishes Dirt On Trump And The Deep State In Profane Rant

Acclaimed journalist Seymour Hersh, once a leftist favorite for his coverage of the Vietnam War, became a pariah of the liberal media during the Obama presidency for actually holding the chosen one accountable. In the age of Trump, Hersh is exposing deep state subversion and is not afraid to dish the uncensored dirt on prominent government officials. “You know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a [corporate] board or two… and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in.

Although Scaramucci Is Gone, More Heads Expected To Roll As Trump Shake-Up Continues

President Trump is in the mood for heads to roll, and more shake-ups in the administration are expected. The next person expected to be sent to the unemployment line by Trump is National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, the neoconservative who has pushed for a more belligerent approach on foreign policy. New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush claims that administration sources have indicated to him that Trump is considering replacing McMaster with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. McMaster, who replaced Mike Flynn in his role, has frequently annoyed Trump according to reports, and his incessant hawkishness is not always congruent with Trump’s… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Split Continues As “Blood And Soil” Speech Triggers Another Racial Witch Hunt

The split between left-leaning and right-leaning libertarians has reached a fever pitch after Jeff Deist, Director of the Mises Institute, gave an iconic speech during his annual Mises University event about “blood and soil” libertarianism, an idea encompassing cultural conservatism as a barricade against state power. “It is reasonable to believe that a more libertarian society would be less libertine and more culturally conservative — for the simple reason that as the state shrinks in importance and power, the long-suppressed institutions of civil society grow in importance and power,” Deist said. “And in a more libertarian society, it’s harder to… Keep Reading

Too Much Winning: Scaramucci’s Flame Out Shows The Limits Of Trumpism

To those who enjoyed the Scaramucci show and are sad that it has come to an end, please consider the old adage: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Anthony Scaramucci came into the Trump administration like a knight in shining armor. Besieged with constant infiltration, leaks and seemingly unprecedented turmoil throughout his first six months, President Trump needed a man to come in like gang busters and take care of business. Replacing Sean Spicer, Scaramucci came in as White House communications director guns a-blazin’ with a style so brash and confrontational that it may have… Keep Reading

Trump Administration Mulls Afghanistan Drawback After Prior Indications Of Expansion

President Donald Trump’s foreign policy may not always be coherent, but it is proving to be less belligerent than that of his predecessors. After previously indicating that troop totals would likely be expanding in Afghanistan, the Trump administration is considering reversing that policy after the Pentagon failed to rally much support behind their initial proposal. “It’s a macro question as to whether the U.S., this administration, and this president are committed to staying,” a senior Trump administration official said to the Wall Street Journal. “It doesn’t work unless we are there for a long time, and if we don’t have… Keep Reading

Reason Magazine Feminazi Threatens Libertarian Youth Activist Over Harmless Joke

Libertarians have typically been known as standing for freedom of expression, but that is going to change if Elizabeth Nolan Brown has her way.

Rand Paul Makes Principled Stand To Stall NDAA Vote, Earning Him John McCain’s Ire

Despite all of the wackiness going on in Washington D.C. right now, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has not lost sight of what is important. Indefinite detention of any American citizen deemed a terrorist by the federal government was codified into law in the 2012 NDAA signed by former President Obama, and remains in effect today. Paul was able to stall an expedited vote proposed by Senate leadership for this year’s NDAA so an amendment to repeal indefinite detention could be considered. Paul’s move will likely stall the bill from being considered until September. Predictably, Paul’s fidelity to civil liberties has… Keep Reading

After Health Care Fiasco, Mike Huckabee Calls For 17th Amendment To Be Repealed

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is fighting mad after the Senate refused to repeal Obamacare this week. He has an idea for a reform that would take us back to the original intent of the Constitution by repealing the 17th Amendment, which allowed for the popular vote of senators. “Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures,” Huckabee wrote in a first Tweet that set off a host of angry responses from liberals and conservatives alike. Undeterred by the negative feedback, Huckabee re-emphasized his earlier statement with a follow-up Tweet. “Ignorance of history of 17th… Keep Reading

Paul’s Gamble Pays Off As Neocons Collude With Democrats To Kill Obamacare Repeal

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has played a very nuanced game regarding health care negotiations. After positioning himself for months as the leading hard-liner for Obamacare repeal, Paul eventually conceded to allow debate and voted affirmatively on a lackluster bare-bones repeal that failed this morning. His manuevering ultimately paid off, as neoconservatives were ultimately for stopping any kind of Obamacare repeal from taking place. It was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a frequent foil of Paul and his father, who ultimately cast the deciding vote against Obamacare repeal. He was joined by Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) as the… Keep Reading

Carl Bunce, a long-time libertarian activist, narrowly defeated his establishment opponent, Eddie Facey, by a four-vote margin last week.

As Hillary Remains Free, Attorney General Jeff Sessions Focuses On Failed Drug War

When Donald Trump was campaigning for President last year, thousands of Americans chanted “LOCK HER UP!” throughout the country referring to his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Once elected, Trump supporters expected Attorney General Jeff Sessions to follow the campaign’s mandate and proceed to investigate Clinton for her e-mails, Libyan war crimes, and other atrocities she has committed over the years. Instead of fulfilling the Trump mandate, Sessions has gone rogue.

The “Free Syrian Army” Whines After President Trump Cuts Off Their Federal Aid

It is no secret that Syrian terrorists were, more or less, on the federal payroll during the Obama administration. Former President Obama, with support from partisan Democrats and neoconservatives, followed the policy of encouraging terrorists to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This would have created a situation analogous to what occurred in Libya or Iraq after American foreign interventions rocked those countries. But the so-called “Free Syrian Army” got a rude awakening this week that there is a new sheriff in town after news broke that Trump ended a CIA program designed to help them overthrow the Assad government. “Certainly… Keep Reading
