Ron Paul’s Liberty Report, Chris Hedges Truthdig, Counterpunch, Kim Iversen, Truthout

I have added feeds for four news sources (Ron Paul’s Liberty Report & Ron Paul’s YouTube Videos), Chris Hedges Truthdig & Counterpunch (left-wing perspectives not heard in any mainstream media) that will report on news 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, Chris Hedges 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.

  • It Wasn't "Different This Time"...It Was Worse & The Fed Will Fail
    It's never "different this time." The Fed's bubbles and busts keep coming and they're getting more intense. Every bubble is bigger than the previous one, as is every "bailout." Every "bailout" carries with it a promise for a future economic crisis. The Fed will fail. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [...]

  • The One-Size-Fits-All Syndrome
    By Chris Rossini​Every single human being is a one-of-a-kind creation. There are no carbon copies.The way that each of us look at, and interpret the world, is completely unique to ourselves. When any event occurs, your explanation to yourself about what it means will be influenced by your prior experience, by what you've been taught in the past and accepted as true (even if, in reality, it is false).Since no human individual is all-knowing or omnipotent, it means we all walk around with some l [...]

    Now that the coronavirus scare has much of the country fearful and sheltered-in-place, there are more than a few special interests that are profiting massively from the "Emergency State" that has emerged.

    While major military exercises have been cancelled in Europe due to coronavirus fears, the US has decided to continue with war games in the Middle East aimed at making war on Iran.

  • Like Freedom? Then You Won’t Like the FREEDOM Act
    By Ron Paul​Last Monday, a bipartisan group of Senators and a coalition including libertarian and progressive activists thwarted a scheme to ram through the Senate legislation renewing three provisions of the USA FREEDOM Act (previously known as the USA PATRIOT Act). The bill had already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and most expected it to sail through the Senate. But, instead, Senate leadership had to settle for a 77-day extension.Senate leadership was also forced to allo [...]

Their job is made harder by the hysteria whipped up by politicians and the media. This makes people flock to emergency rooms and doctors’ offices. And, this comes on top of the challenge already facing t [...]

    When it comes to warding off COVID-19, I’ve been ahead of the curve. Last October, after a bout with acute bronchitis that lasted most of the month, I resolved never to go through such an ordeal again. I started using hand sanitizer and avoided touching my face. Like my glaucoma, it is a geriatric illness. When I checked the New York Times archives for tips on dealing with bronchitis, I was shocked to discover how many well-known and powerful geezers came down with it: Konrad Adenauer, Boris Yeltsin, Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Paul Robeson. None died from bronchitis, but around half were hospitalized, a routine treatment for powerful heads of state (except for Robeson.)

    despite his repeated reference to the battle against COVID-19 as a “war” against a “vicious invisible enemy,” Trump has so far refused to follow the pleas of public health experts, mayors, and governors for him to invoke the Defense Production Act.
