The Cunning Plot to Kill Kennedy In the Kennedy assassination, the entire effort immediately became to pin the crime solely on a communist ex-U.S. Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald and to shut down any aggressive investigation into whether others were involved in the crime.

Trump's Dictatorial Tendencies We live under a type of governmental system in which it is the responsibility of Congress to enact the laws, it is the responsibility of the president to carry out the laws, and it is the responsibility of the courts to interpret the laws.

"Small Government" is an Empty Republican Mantra welfare-warfare state reform is not freedom, which is what libertarianism is all about. Freedom entails dismantling, not reforming, the illegitimate functions of government.

Why Foreign Interventionism, Especially Now? Questions that deserve pondering are: Why must the U.S. government be engaged in foreign meddling? What good does it do? Are there harmful consequences? Are they worth it?

Do We Need the First Amendment? The First Amendment does not give people rights. It prohibits the government from infringing on rights that preexist the government. The only reason for enacting such a prohibition is the concern that in the absence of such a prohibition, Congress would enact laws that abridge freedom of speech and other fundamental rights.

The Ongoing U.S. War on Iran The vicious and brutal U.S. economic sanctions on Iran target the Iranian populace with death and economic impoverishment and have been tremendously successful in achieving that end.

Pardon Assange and Snowden Assange and Snowden deserve immediate pardons, which would enable them to be released from prison and exile and to begin resuming their normal lives. The fact that they even have to seek pardons only reflects what the deep state has done to our values as Americans.

Two More U.S. Deaths for Nothing in Afghanistan The U.S. government should tell the families of those two dead soldiers the truth: they died for nothing, just as 58,000 American soldiers died for nothing in the Vietnam War. The realization that one's loved ones died for nothing would be painful but at least it would be the truth.

Who Is Responsible for the Deaths of Those Three Children in Syria? Getting Baghdadi was the prime objective, and no price in terms of foreign life would be considered too high to get him. Even if it had been 20 children or 100 children who would be killed in the operation, the deaths, while difficult, would still have been considered worth it.

Vicarious Courage on Syria it's easy to be brave, courageous, compassionate, and loyal to the Kurds when it's someone else who is doing the killing and dying. It's not as easy to display such traits when it's you, the interventionist, who is doing the killing and dying.

Donald Trump, Trade Dictator The truth, no matter how discomforting it might be, is that with his trade wars and his unilateral imposition of taxes on the American people, Trump has accelerated the destruction of American freedom. It is Dictatorship 101, all nicely wrapped up in an American flag and a mantra of "making America great again."
