Iowa Caucus Fiasco: Something New, Or Deja Vu?

Last night's Iowa Democratic Caucus has devolved into a poster child for how NOT to conduct an election. This is nothing new. Conspiracy, incompetence, and group-think have perhaps all come together to deliver a huge political present to President Trump. Maybe democracy itself is the problem. Watch today's Liberty Report...

undefined

The Unbearable Hypocrisy of US Sanctions on Iran

undefined

On November 22nd of last year, the US government announced it would impose sanctions on Iran's information minister for his alleged role in limiting domestic Internet access while protests raged in that country over increases in gas prices. 

At the time, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin condemned the Iranian government for censuring information that Iranian citizens could view online, stating that, "Iran’s leaders know that a free and open internet exposes their illegitimacy, so they seek to censor internet access to quell anti-regime protests."

The Iranians were evil, said the US government official in charge of economic sanctions, because it restricted what its citizens could read in the international press.

Our government would never do that...right?

Wrong. Yesterday, the US government knocked Iran's state news agency, FARS, off of the Internet entirely, citing US sanctions against the country.
