  • What Do Our Presidential Candidates Know About Foreign Policy?

    Micah Zenko poses eight questions for the presidential candidates on foreign policy to test how realistic and substantive their positions are. Here is the first one:

    Is their proposed policy actionable? After the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Paris, and Brussels, the White House-hopefuls all made unspecific promises to “get tough,” “get serious,” or “redouble our efforts” in the war against the Islamic State. These are examples of emotive posturing, not actual policies that any governmental agency can implement. A policy is a clear statement of intent with supporting courses of action that government employees can implement. As English diplomat Harold Nicholson wrote in 1933, “[a]n imprecise policy means no policy at all. It means aspiration only.” READ MORE...

  • You Probably Didn’t Even Know This Candidate Was Running For President [VIDEO]

    Everyone is so focused on Democrats and Republicans running for the 2016 presidential nomination that they have completely ignored another silent majority backing a formidable candidate: John McAfee.

    John McAfee is a world-famous computer scientist, activist, developer of the first commercial anti-virus software program, and Libertarian Candidate for President of the United States.

    McAfee’s message, according to his campaign sight, BeALibertarian.com, is to spread the cause of Liberty far and wide. He argues that:

    • He’s seen firsthand what happens when a government has unchecked power over its citizens.
    • He’s been a part of the technological revolution that has proven how an industry free from government regulation can flourish.
    • He’s got the expertise and know-how to protect our nation from the real security threats of today, and protect our privacy while doing it.

    McAfee argues,

    “The American government reversed its role of being a servant to its citizens and took on the role of being our boss, our mother, our father. It began to tell us what we could and could not do with our own bodies. It decided what was good for us and bad for us. And demanded that we obey its judgments. It began a systematic removal of our privacies so that it could know where we are, what we are doing, and who with. It has removed many of our freedoms so that it can ensure its plans for our lives could not be thwarted.” READ MORE...

  • Obama and the Dumb, Rash Wars He Supports

    Supporters of destabilizing regime change can’t accept responsibility for the chaos they help create:

    Both Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continue to argue that it wasn’t the removal of Gaddafi that caused the chaos, but rather the failure to prop up a stable government in the days following. An ISIS affiliate has since gained a foothold in the country, and the U.S. has carried out airstrikes against “ISIS camps” as recently as February.

    That’s a lesson I now apply when we’re asked to intervene militarily [bold mine-DL]. Do we have a plan for the day after?” Obama said in an interview with the BBC that aired two weeks ago. READ MORE...

  • Judges Will Have to Inform Jurors of Jury Nullification in New Hampshire if This Bill is Signed into Law

    In dealing with the corruption and criminals in our government who falsely accuse the citizens they serve and seek to imprison them, it seems their time is coming to an end. The New Hampshire House has become the first in the US to pass a bill which would require judges to inform jurors of jury nullification.

    HB1270, the new bill that just passed the New Hampshire House requires the court to instruct the jurors that the jury determines the applicability of the law to the facts of the case.

    According to the bill, “The legislature finds that the New Hampshire Constitution, Part 1, Article 21 identifies trial by jury to be an inestimable privilege indicating its importance in the application of law and justice.  Furthermore, Part 1, Article 12 identifies a role of the people in approving law; the only location for this consent is the jury.” READ MORE...
