The CIA Wants More Power to Spy on Americans!

The CIA Wants More Power to Spy on Americans!

Americans need to be aware of the unbridled propensity of federal intelligence agencies to spy on all of us without search warrants as required by the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. These agencies believe that the Fourth Amendment -- which protects the individual right to privacy -- only regulates law enforcement and does not apply to domestic spying. There is no basis in the constitutional text, history or judicial interpretations for such a limiting and toothless view of this...

Why the JFK Assassination Still Matters

Why the JFK Assassination Still Matters

Someone might reasonably ask, “What difference does the JFK assassination make to those of us living today? The assassination took place more than 60 years ago. Everyone involved in it is now dead. Why not just forget it and move on?’ Those are reasonable questions, especially when they come from young people. Why should they care about who killed Kennedy? The reason lies in the governmental structure under which all of us have been born and raised — a national-security state form of...

The Deep State Prepares for a Trump Victory

The Deep State Prepares for a Trump Victory

We’ve all wondered if the fix is already in. Given the irregularities of the last election, and the manner in which the whole of the U.S. establishment rallied around one side, maybe a Biden victory in November is a foregone conclusion. I’m guilty of believing this. I’ve doubted every prediction that Donald Trump or RFK, Jr. can win. This is not because they won’t get votes. It’s because those votes might not matter enough. The power of haters is awesome and ubiquitous. The whole of legacy...

NPR Editor Blasts the Public-Funded Company for Political Bias and Activism

NPR Editor Blasts the Public-Funded Company for Political Bias and Activism

In a scathing account from within National Public Radio (NPR), Senior Editor Uri Berliner blasted the company for open political bias and activism. Berliner, who says that he is liberal politically, wrote about how NPR went from a left-leaning media outlet to a virtual Democratic operation echoing narratives from figures like Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Cal.). The objections have long been voiced, including on this blog, but this account is coming from a long-standing and respected editor from...

Tyranny by the Numbers: The Government Wants Your Money Any Way It Can Get It

Tyranny by the Numbers: The Government Wants Your Money Any Way It Can Get It

The government wants your money. It will beg, steal or borrow if necessary, but it wants your money any way it can get it. This is what comes of those $1.2 trillion spending bills: someone’s got to foot the bill for the government’s fiscal insanity, and that “someone” is the U.S. taxpayer. The government’s schemes to swindle, cheat, scam, and generally defraud taxpayers of their hard-earned dollars have run the gamut from wasteful pork barrel legislation, cronyism and graft to asset...

Brutal, chaotic war – norms, conventions and laws of conduct are being erased

Brutal, chaotic war – norms, conventions and laws of conduct are being erased

We stand on the cusp of what might be termed Chaotic War. Not the formula used by Israel often in the past to intimidate adversaries; this is different. Israeli reporter Eddie Cohen said, in the wake of the attack on the Iranian Consulate: “We are very clear that we want to start a war with Iran and Hezbollah. Do you still not understand?” “Israel wants to drag Iran into a full-scale war in order to be able to strike at Iran’s nuclear facilities,” though these facilities are...

Why Did Washington Insist on the Kosovo War?

Why Did Washington Insist on the Kosovo War?

The following remarks were delivered at a conference marking the 25th anniversary of the NATO bombing of Serbia: "The 1999 Red-Green Bombing Terror against Serbia," held on March 20, 2024, at the Bundestag in Berlin hosted by MdB Dr. Rainer Rothfuß and his Alternative for Germany parliamentary group. In 2004, I appeared as the second defense witness called by Slobodan Milošević at his so-called “trial” before the so-called “International Criminal Tribunal for the former...

America’s Ceasefire Deception

America’s Ceasefire Deception

Inarguably, to condemn Israel’s industrial-scale campaign of slaughter and starvation in Gaza ought to be ethically straightforward. Basic really, for Israel is in violation of God’s law, natural justice, the laws of war and all customary international humanitarian law. That Israel is committing the “the crime of all crimes” against the Palestinians of Gaza is not within the realm of opinion. That the Global North is standing stock-still in the face of this well-documented holocaust is not in...

McConnell Cannot Stop the Non-Interventionist Tide

McConnell Cannot Stop the Non-Interventionist Tide

Even Republican stalwarts like current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are starting to notice that something is shifting in the party. While McConnell announced recently that he would step down as Republican leader in the US Senate, in an interview last week he was adamant that he would continue to serve out his term in the Senate with one purpose in mind: “fighting back against the isolationist movement in my own party.” He sounds worried. What McConnell deems to be “isolationism” had...

Israel is Crossing All Boundaries as America Tires of its Endless Wars

Israel is Crossing All Boundaries as America Tires of its Endless Wars

A version of this article first appeared as a regular RPI Update. Subscribe for free here. Last week the Israelis scored a bloody "hat trick" - slaughtering seven international food aid workers, demolishing the last major hospital operating in Gaza, and - perhaps most dangerous - attacking an Iranian diplomatic facility in Damascus, Syria, in which several senior Iranian military figures were killed. There is a very good reason diplomatic facilities are off limits even in times of war. It has...

Ukraine – Faking News Still Does Not Help Winning

Ukraine – Faking News Still Does Not Help Winning

I find it amusing how little western media have learned from their own reporting on the war in Ukraine. Two years ago a mystic 'Ghost of Kiev' was allegedly shooting down Russian aircraft left and right. The ghost turned out to be a fake character. The Ukrainian air force had never had such successes. Two years on it is still the same story. The Ukrainian government claims something and western media print it as if it had really happened. When the claim is debunked, often sooner than...

New Challenges to the First Amendment from the Biden Administration

New Challenges to the First Amendment from the Biden Administration

The great irony is despite all the fear mongering spewed out about Donald Trump ending democracy, it is mostly the Democrats who are taking shots at its most sacred freedoms, those of the First Amendment. The House recently passed a bill, HR 7521, seeking to “ban” the popular app Tik Tok from America’s smartphones. The logic works like this: Tik Tok is owned by a Chinese company. Chinese companies are under the control of the Chinese Communists. Therefore, Tik Tok is brainwashing American...

Federal Judge Hits CDC Over Withholding Data on Adverse Vaccine Reports

Federal Judge Hits CDC Over Withholding Data on Adverse Vaccine Reports

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to resist disclosing information on claimed side effects and problems with its COVID-19 vaccines, including from healthcare workers. Due to a January order by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk in a Freedom of Information Act case, the CDC is being forced to turn over hundreds of thousands of “free text” entries from V-safe. The court has scolded the CDC for its continuing efforts to withhold information on...

The Government Attacks the Freedom of Speech

The Government Attacks the Freedom of Speech

“I do not agree with a word that you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”-- Voltaire (1694-1778) Holy Week was not a good week for personal liberty as governments throughout the United States engaged in direct and subtle attacks on free speech. The freedom of speech is unique in American history and ethos. It was the linchpin of the secession of the 13 colonies from Great Britain. It is often claimed at the most distinguishing characteristic between life in the United...

‘#arrestme’: JK Rowling Dares Scotland to Enforce Anti-Free Speech Law

‘#arrestme’: JK Rowling Dares Scotland to Enforce Anti-Free Speech Law

We have previously discussed the growing anti-free speech movement in Scotland with the expanding criminalization of political and religious speech. The new Scottish law is a perfect nightmare for free speech, expanding the potential of a jail sentence for merely insulting language. In response, author JK Rowling has taken a stand and dared the Scottish police to come and arrest her for criticizing transgender status. The Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act...

The Government Wants to Play God. What Does That Mean for Our Freedoms?

The Government Wants to Play God. What Does That Mean for Our Freedoms?

The government wants to play god. It wants the power to decide who lives or dies and whose rights are worthy of protection. Abortion may still be front and center in the power struggle between the Left and the Right over who has the right to decide—the government or the individual—when it comes to bodily autonomy, the right to privacy, sexual freedom, the rights of the unborn, and property interests in one’s body, but there’s so much more at play. In the 50-plus years since the U.S. Supreme...
