Remembering Ron Paul’s “What If…” Speech: Memorial Day 2018

On this Memorial Day, I’d like to hearken back to Ron Paul’s amazing “What If…” speech. This short, iconic speech should echo through the annals of American history as a voice of sanity in a dying empire.

This Saturday, I didn’t feel like prepping a show, so I opened up an impromptu live stream and sent invites to former guests and friends of the show! It resulted in some pretty good  content, as I was joined by Kyle Anzalone of Foreign Policy Focus, Thijs van der Linde, and Mike Tilden of Battle for Liberty.

Foundations of Real Property Law: Present and Concurrent Estates Ep. 76

In this episode, I teach some of the fundamentals of real property law! Since we are all propertarians, we should probably learn the different types of property ownership that exist in our current legal framework. I hope everyone finds this interesting, as it is a great way for me to keep the podcast alive while I study for the bar exam.

Citing Tenth Amendment, SCOTUS Strikes Down Federal Sports Gambling Law Ep. 74

Further cementing what has come to be known as the “anti commandeering doctrine,” the Supreme Court ruled that: “Provisions of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act that prohibit state authorization and licensing of sports gambling schemes violate the Constitution[.]” Although SCOTUS is no friend to liberty, and cannot be counted on to limit federal power, this decision is a win for state’s rights.

What you need to know about the Iran Nuclear Deal and CIA Torturer Gina Haspel by: Patrick MacFarlane

The military industrial complex is in high gear as the United States has decided to step away from the Iran Nuclear Agreement–which was just about the only good thing to come out of the Obama Presidency.

There is absolutely ZERO evidence that Iran has pursued nuclear weapons since 2003. This is a claim that has been debunked over and over again by non-interventionists, most notably journalist Gareth Porter in his terrific book “Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare” (Amazon Affiliate Link).

The war hawks, guided by the Israel lobby, have been pushing for war with Iran for decades. In fact, since Donald Trump made the announcement, Israel has stepped up their bombing campaigns against Syrian and Iranian targets inside of Syria.

Distressingly, Iran has retaliated, by firing rockets at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, an area of Syria that was illegally annexed by Israel in 1967.

The United States pulling out of the nuclear deal is just another step in the road towards a real confrontation between Israel, the United States, Iran, and their respective allies. Needless to say, it does not bode well for the prospects of peace, liberty, and prosperity.

In the meantime, the Senate Intelligence Committee interviewed proven torturer Gina Haspel as a part of her nomination for CIA Director.

In the words of veteran CIA analyst Ray McGovern, “[i]t is no secret that Haspel oversaw detainee torture, including waterboarding, at a CIA ‘black site’ base in Thailand,” later ordering the destruction of “dozens of videotapes of torture sessions.”

McGovern notes that, aside from being “intrinsically evil,” and in violation of international and domestic law, torture simply does not work and consistently yields false intelligence, which is then used to justify war.

A prime example: Colin Powell claimed to the UN security council in 2003 that there was a “sinister nexus” between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. This source of this false intelligence derived from the torture of Abu Yahya al-Libi, who less than a year later admitted that he made the story up while being waterboarded by Egyptian intelligence.

This “intelligence” resulted, in part, in the 2003 invasion of Iraq that destroyed the country. The ensuing chaos saw the rise of an international jihadist insurgency (Al Qaeda in Iraq (ISIS)) as radical Islamist militants flooded the country looking for any opportunity to fight against the American Empire.

It is of the utmost importance that the American Public be educated about these issues. Please take the time to share this content and get the word out.

US Out of the Iran Deal as Torturer Gina Haspel Interviews for CIA Head Ep. 73 ft. Kyle Anzalone

Today I am joined by returning guest and resident foreign policy expert at the Libertarian Union, Kyle Anzalone.

No Charges for Officers Who Tased Mentally Ill Man TO DEATH in His Shower Ep. 71

For my first episode back from a brief reprieve from Liberty Weekly, I lend my legal analysis to a horrible case out of Milwaukee County where District Attorney John Chrisholm has declined to file criminal charges against police officers who tased a mentally ill man to death in his shower. It is of the utmost importance that the public understand why Chrisholm made the decision he did and what legal questions he had to answer.
