Noam Chomsky Articles, Libertarian News, Being Libertarian, OpEd News

Unfortunately, no single news source tells the whole truth, so I have been forced to use articles from both libertarian and leftist sources to get to the truth. I urge readers to go through the articles, read them for yourselves and come to your own conclusions. I am presenting stuff you can’t get in mainstream news here at my blog. Noam Chomsky is somebody who has done some deep thinking about current events. To open links to another page, R-click on the link to open.

  • TGIF: But Mr. Trump, Is Israel Lovable?
    Speaking before Sheldon Adelson’s Israeli-American Council the other day, Trump took a shot at Jewish Americans who he says don’t “love Israel enough.” “We have to get the people of our country, of this country, to love Israel more,” Trump said. “We have to get them to love Israel more because you have people that […]TGIF: But Mr. Trump, Is Israel Lovable? was first posted on December 13, 2019 at 12:00 am.
  • What the Afghanistan Papers Really Reveal
    The recent revelations in the “Afghanistan Papers” is nothing unknown for those who cared to take notice. It is a revelation in the sense that it took the mainstream media so long to report on the real war in Afghanistan.

  • Free Man Beyond the Wall
    A couple of years ago a bold new meme warrior appeared on Twitter and started converting the world to libertarianism through the power of funny pictures. “Mance Rayder” quickly became one of the country’s most popular libertarian podcasters and social media personalities. And then it turned out that he can write too. So in the summer of 2019 […]Free Man Beyond the Wall was first posted on December 11, 2019 at 12:31 pm.
  • US No Longer Considers Yemen’s Houthis an Iranian Proxy
    Accusing long served as war justification for US, Saudis The Trump Administration has announced a policy change that looks like it could be a major turning point in US policy toward Yemen, announcing that they no longer consider the Shi’ite Houthi movement in Yemen to be a proxy of the Iranian government.

  • Betraying the Constitution
    “It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”—Thomas Paine While Congress subjects the nation to its impeachment-flavored brand of bread-and-circus politics, our civil liberties continue to die a slow, painful death by a thousand cuts. Case in point: while Americans have been fixated on the carefully orchestrated impeachment drama […]Betraying the Constitution was first posted on December 11, 2019 at 6:41 am.
  • Eliminating the Horror of Modern Policing
    If people properly understood the role of police in the American system, they would probably trust anyone standing next to them in the grocery store to have their best interests at heart more than a “law enforcement” officer. There’s an important reason for this. According to a Cato study, if you are an American, you are 8X more […]Eliminating the Horror of Modern Policing was first posted on December 11, 2019 at 5:00 am.
  • Since Feeding the Homeless Is Illegal, Activists Carry AR-15s to Give Out Food, Supplies
    Dallas, TX — Feeding and clothing the homeless in the land of the free has now become a revolutionary act. Luckily, however, there are still good people willing to carry that act out.

  • Three Underrated Arguments Debunking Marx’s Labor Theory Of Value
    Though widely dispensed of in the field of economics, the notion of “wage slavery” is still commonly held among progressives and socialists of many stripes. It is not uncommon, especially on social media, to run into people insisting that employers are “stealing” part of their labor because the wage they receive from their employer is […]Three Underrated Arguments Debunking Marx’s Labor Theory Of Value was first posted on December 10, 2019 at 12:15 pm.
  • Oklahoma Bill Would Block Unconstitutional National Guard Deployments
    OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (Dec. 10, 2019) – A bill prefiled in the Oklahoma Senate would prohibit unconstitutional foreign deployments of the state’s National Guard troops.

  • Impeach Him Already – Red Dirt Liberty Report
    "I think Donald Trump is one of the better Presidents the United States has had. I would put him, at least, in the top ten. That’s not bad. Approximately the top quartile.
