Ron Paul’s Liberty Report, The Hill, Counterpunch, Kim Iversen, Truthout

I have added feeds for some news sources (Ron Paul’s Liberty Report & Ron Paul’s YouTube Videos), “Save the Cat” Novel Writer Tips (excellent advice for novel writers) that will report on news and writer tips you can’t get in American mainstream news or that offer a perspective often missing from mainstream news. I do not completely agree with Ron Paul or Counterpunch on everything, but most of what’s at mainstream news is group think and I like to think for myself. Ron Paul disagrees with some of the leftist positions, but I want all intelligent arguments heard and encourage readers to draw their own conclusions. I have deliberately chosen sources that appear well thought out and are not propaganda. I disagree with Counterpunch more than I agree with them, but every now and then they hit the nail on the head and they deserve a hearing, even if they are liberal leaning and counter to much of what I believe as an evangelical. I tend to agree with Ron Paul about eighty percent, but feel I need to allow some liberal voices here to balance him out.

  • Is The New Covid 'Surge' All About The Election?
    The fear and panic is being stoked heavily, once again, about surges in cases and surges in hospitalizations. Former FDA Director Scott Gottlieb (who is on the board of at least seven big pharma and medical policy companies) is calling for a "mandatory nationwide mask mandate"! Are we really returning to April levels of Covid, or is this a last-minute political ploy just a week from election day? (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [...]
  • Busybody Alchemy Cannot Go As Planned
    By Chris Rossini​Plant an acorn into the soil and you will end up with a mighty oak tree. You plant, and the soil responds.Plant an apple seed, and the soil will produce an apple tree. A lilac seed will produce a lilac bush.The soil will not produce until you plant the seed. You initiate the process. There is no such thing as 'something for nothing' when it comes to the soil. The soil doesn't care which seed is planted, or who does the planting. It can be an Iowan planting corn, or a Flor [...]
  • Fast Approaching: A "Crack-up Boom" Of the Fed's Making
    "We can't do it, unless we raise taxes." These are words that one hardly ever hears from Washington. How can this be? How can they run a military empire, a humongous welfare state, bailout everyone, and make promises that can never be kept? Well, it's the unconstitutional Federal Reserve that created this fantasy, and all fantasies ultimately crash on the shores of reality. The great economist Ludwig von Mises spoke of the "crack-up boom." You should know what it is, and how to protect yourself [...]
  • Debate Preview: Why's Biden Hiding? Why No Foreign Policy?
    Tonight the two US presidential candidates are set to square off again in a debate. The former vice president has cancelled campaign appearances this week to "prepare" for the event. The debate commission said no foreign policy among the topics. Also today: the Biden scandal worsens. And...are Russia AND Iran trying to fix our elections? Plus: suicides on the increase.

  • The Coronavirus War On Children
    NPR is reporting on several new studies concluding that schools are not nearly as dangerous for either students or teachers regarding coronavirus and also that the death rate from the virus is plunging. This is NPR - the mainstream media. So why does the war on children continue? Also in today's program: "excess deaths" - who are they? A return to lockdown in the US. And more Republican saber rattling toward China. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [...]
  • Troops Coming Home from Afghanistan? Depends on Who You Ask
    By Ron Paul​There is a lot to cheer about when it comes to most of President Trump's foreign policy statements. He regularly tells us he is ending foreign wars and bringing troops home. But do the people who work for him even listen? It seems as soon as the president makes a strong foreign policy statement, one of his appointees grabs a microphone to explain what the president “really meant.”Earlier this month, President Trump Tweeted that, “we should have the smal [...]
  • 'All These Idiots...Got It Wrong!' Trump Turns Hard On Fauci
    Speaking on a conference call yesterday, President Trump made what appears to be a final and irreversible break with the "lockdown" and "facemask" policies of Anthony Fauci and the rest of the Covid "experts" who have spent the past half year or so attacking civil liberties in the name of fighting a virus. Will this last-minute attack on Fauci and all the other "idiots who got it wrong" pay dividends as the campaign winds toward the finish? Plus today: Dallas Morning News runs pro-Great Barringt [...]
  • Americans Must Ditch The Imperialist Mindset
    By Chris Rossini​America has a major imperialist mindset problem. Attempting to force one's way of living on others has caused tremendous turmoil, both around the world, and here at home. The two major parties have been consumed with imperialism for a very long time; at least 100 years. Republicans have a tendency to want to impose upon people in foreign nations, while Democrats tend to want to impose upon people in America. The dividing lines are by no means clear-cut though.  Many [...]
  • There They Go Again! Adam Schiff Blames RUSSIA For Biden's Laptop
    Deja vu! Once again those Russians have come through to plant disinformation during a US presidential campaign! This time they are accused of being involved with Biden's son Hunter's laptop. Rep. Adam Schiff claims he's as sure about Russian activity this time as he was sure of Trump collusion with Russia last time. How did that one work out? Also today, White House top Covid advisor Dr. Scott Atlas has his Tweets yanked - more politicization of science? And...the California governor does not wa [...]
  • Goodbye Middle Class? The Prime Victim of Big Government Is Disappearing
    Individual Liberty and Big Government are mutually exclusive. When America largely operated under a Constitutional government, the American middle class was awe-inspiring. Now, with a Constitution that is ignored, and with the biggest government to ever exist, the American middle class is disappearing. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [...]

  • What the Election Should Have Been About
    Economists, and, and I stress, most people, even me, have not quite admitted to themselves, nor fully gamed out, that the global economy, in broad strokes, is unsustainable.

    Trump's indisputably reckless do-nothing approach to the virus from the beginning and his refusal to marshal the mighty U.S. industrial strength to provide the tools necessary to fight the coronavirus is absolutely inexcusable.

    Epidemiologists agree that early intervention is crucial for curbing the worst effects of pandemics. America’s decentralized, state-level, bureaucratic response systems needed a President willing and able to take charge. Trump did the opposite.

I’ve taken similar vows about reading the New York Times, the Guardian and the Washington Post. But you can’t avoid them. They seek you out, relentlessly track you down, enter your mind, like it or not, like some cyber-Nosferatu, sucking your soul out before you’ve had the chance to fuel yourself with the day’s first bitter cup of Arabica.
